so what exactly is this great black heritage?

Is it generations of black woman living in slums public housing surviving on welfare payments handed out by the slave master democrats in return for black ho's voting for democrats??

Is it generations of black children living in public housing slums with no fathers n the home or in their lives??

Oh wait I know its the big brave black men selling drugs at night on dark street in major cities shooting killing and wounding other black people with unregistered unlicensed had guns. doing drive by shootings in which any one who gets in the way can be killed even babies,

several thousand black people killed by other black people in Chicago in the past five years and the police have no idea who done it??

Or could black heritage be depending on NAACP, congressional black caucus, urban league, affirmative action, to pave the way for you??

Strange no other race or ethnic group has or needs all these advantages yet we all make it in America why is that?

Say black America, I got a question for you.

why is it that legal & illegal immigrants from all over the planet surface come to America find jobs and make a life in amerce and the American black can't??

Some of those immigrants don't speak English or ebonics very well BUT THEY FIND WORK AND A LIFE!

something wrong with that picture.

If blacks and liberals would quit making everything in this country about race, this nation would certainly be better off. The Indians had things pretty bad in this country too, but I don't see them attributing every inequality in their lives to racism, or demanding we recognize an "Indian History Month".

yo your beborahness

the topic at hand was "Black heritage trail" hence the comments were directed at the black population. Asking them to explain what exactly they have to be proud of.

You need to read the papers or actually travel to some American cities to see first hand what black people have done to them selves the south side of Chicago and Detroit which has been so mismanaged by corrupt black mayors the city is in bankruptcy court today and last several mayors in federal prison for corruption.

It is not a generalization to point out that several thousand black people have been shot dead in Chicago by other black people over the past 8 years with unregistered unlicensed guns despite Chicago's tough gun laws.

It is not a generalization to point out that black criminals looted burned Detroit downtown area which forced decent people of all races to leave Detroit a shattered shell of an empty city which is now bankrupt.

It is not a generalization to point out that a large percentage of black woman are on welfare raising kids with no fathers in slum conditions.

You should read the study by the department of health and human services titled " Harlem 1850 to 1970". that will open your eyes and demonstrate the accuracy of what I report.

Hold on a minute here

we Lithuanians don't have a history month or a congressional Lithuanian caucus, national association for the advancement of Lithuanians , Lithuanian history class at Harvard or we don't get affirmative action in hiring or school placement yet we make it in America.

I demand we have a Lithuanian history month we have a lot more to be proud of than those silly no account black people.

America doesn't have to pander to us we make it on our own with hard work.

and we don't yell recrimination every time some thing goes against us.

we don't need no dummy al notso Sharpton pimping for us.

This thread is silly. The reality is that black people have the right to publicly outline programs and historical representations of their heritage and dignity. Asians, Hispanics, and other ethnic groups including other backgrounds have months or other celebrations of their heritage all of the time. White reactionaries always hate it when black people strongly show that they are not ashamed of being black, because they want black people to be submissive, compromising, and sellout to the white racist power structure in the world. Now, many black people have jobs, are extremely intelligent, and are fighting prodigiously for liberty. So, white racist generalizations about black people are ignorant, immature, deceptive, and tired.

The Civil Rights Movement, and other facets of the black liberation movement gave us the lesson of fighting for our legacy and dignity. Now, we have every right to stand up against police brutality, to stand up against racism/discrimination, and to stand up against the reactionary War on Drugs, etc. We as black people are at war against oppression.

It is common sense for us to not only fight black on black crime, but white on black oppression too (and we should grow our infrastructure). Obviously, black people know about issues in the black community. Dr. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and other wanted black people to affirm their heritage not compromise for white reactionary interests. Black people have the right to have self determination and to love Black Power.

Black scapegoating for everything under the sun is racism. Unfairness in the judicial system is racist. You have promoted white interests for years and centuries. Many of your race have done imperialism and we are called racists when we use the common sense promotion of our right to have self determination (as other ethnic groups have done). Yes, Black Power is related to self determination.

Slavery is over. The civil rights movement is over. There's a black man in the White House. Blacks have achieved equality. The only people anymore that seem to be making race an issue are the blacks themselves. People like you seem to be upset that you've achieved equality as you've got to make stuff up to complain about, and screaming racism when it clearly doesn't exist.

You can't possibly believe in post racial fiction. Even Bill O'reilly doesn't believe that we live in a post racial society. Also, black people calling out real racism has to do with the freedom of speech. Don't you love the freedom of speech being expressed. LOL. See, it is called the law of the First Amendment to talk about such subjects. The civil rights movement continues today when extrajudicial murders, environmental racism, and other evils are in society. See, you want to minimize black suffering as a means to justify your agenda. That is the point. Folks expressing legitimate grievances has nothing to do with unfairly complaining. These actions are necessary to build up society since society is not perfect. Your typical stereotypes about blacks confirms my thinking succintly and completely.

oh wake up and look around America!

everywhere any city you look at you will see immigrants from all over the planet surface working living and actually having a life in America.

some don't speak much English or ebonics but they have jobs and a life.

then you have the black communities around the country sitting around watching everyone else out hustling for jobs and actually creating a life for them selves.

Blacks hanging on street corners, lined up at the welfare office selling drugs, shooting killing wounding other black people failing in school failing in real life waiting for someone to do something for them.

Blacks have affirmative action, black history month , black history classes at Harvard, NAACP , the congressional N word caucus. urban league, welfare, the GNU Black panthers, Maxine waters, Charlie rangle and they still can't make it in ameirca ,

Blacks still living in public slum housing, still raising kids with no father al "notso" Sharpton Jessie "fillmypocketsfirst" Jackson out race pimping for them and they still can't make it in America??

look around black people you stand out as the biggest do nothing to help your self losers on the planet .

I have no problem with people exposing real racism when it exists. The problem I have is people like Sharpton, Jackson, and others yelling racism anytime an incident occurs that involves someone with dark skin, regardless of the facts. This constant cry of racism has turned the word itself into a joke and is a punch in the face to victims of true racist acts.

And perhaps you'd care to expound on my "typical stereotypes about blacks".

"...The only people anymore that seem to be making race an issue are the blacks themselves..." One stereotypes out of many since many blacks believe in your philosophy about race. Many whites talk about race like Tim Wise in a way that you disagree with. So, black people are diverse ideologically and politically. I really don't care if someone hates anyone talking about racism constantly. That is their problem with not dealing with reality. Also, we should talk about racism and a multiplicity of subject matters since life is very diverse in its essence.

No, the Sharptons, Jacksons, and even this clown in the White House pulling the race card out at every turn, strictly for political reasons, as there is usually absolutely no evidence of racism, proves that THEY are the ones not "dealing with reality", and nor are YOU if you fail to realize this.

generalization of a race? surely you jest? surely you have not been on the south side of Chicago, Detroit, east st Louis, Oakland, south central LA . if you had visited any of the above or other American cities with large black populations you would have seen first hand what I have described is accurate and currant fact.
Yes there are educated blacks who live the American dream , but the intercity blacks have ignored 60 years of American help and assistance and yes pandering.
I would point out that unemployment in the hood is up over 25% yet immigrants from all over the planet come to America they hustle , find jobs and get a life, while the intercity black wallows in welfare, slum housing drugs, black gang shootings killings.
over 520 black people were shot dead in Chicago last year by other black people with guns, a black rap moron was shot by another black moron with a gun while on his way to his mothers funeral this week in Boston.
Blacks go to chunkies to watch a movie in Chicago and a gun fight breaks out?
drug deal goes bad a then a baby get shot dead, Chicago, Detroit, boston take your pick it happened all three cities by blacks killing blacks,
come on man get into the realm of reality. there are two separate distinct black worlds in America and the vast majority of blacks live in the one I described because I have driven through those cities and that is what I saw in the real world. not some made up obozo fantasy world.
