Slavery is abhorrent, don't get me wrong.

But are blacks really better off today than they were in the 1850s? With so many addicted to drugs, in prison, on welfare, and so many children without fathers, are they really better off? I truly cannot imagine the life -- Violence is everyone, having no idea who my father is, mother strung out on drugs, and know that odds are, I'd wind up shot, in prison, or just dying alone in a crack house.

Slavery and the deprivation of freedom is terrible but is it really much different than addiction to drugs or incarceration?

and this your proposal for a final solution to the ills of some not all.drug addiction comes from the pain pain of being black in america.whites and black use drugs equally but its the blacks that are set up to be caught and put in prison while go on to college.

That's a good point. Under slavery they did have a job they could be proud of, structure and order within their own society. I think as a people, yes they were better off.

I've seen roots and they were always singing and laughing while they were picking cotton. No one went to jail. They were having a good time playing cat and mouse games with their master, slapping their knee having a good ole time.

Well the main flaw in your ideal, is back then white men were feared, they were powerful you know real men, those feared white men are all dead, the current white men are gays, and cowards, so the current white men wouldn't be able to control the black man.

If you gay and cowardly white men every get a set of balls, and no I don't mean the set under your chins, instead of posting these ideals get on the news get the word out, white men have finally grown a set of balls and want the government to enslave blacks again.

I am sure when all the black people hear and see you and your group on tv, they will all rush over to your house, to let you enslave them, I know I will be there, can't wait to feel the crack of your whip.

Any ideal, when any white men are going to grow a set of balls and get on tv, local and national news with this great ideal? I want to make sure I don't miss it, til then I guess we will just be free, Oh darn.

Please, Please, please with sugar on top, take that cock out of your mouth grow some balls and get on tv, I got to have that whip.

Yea to have have to pick cotton under gun point from the overseers they could kill you anytime they felt like it.just like they do todayit's murder but they explain it as justifiable homicide and they simply walk free just like George Zimmermanor the cops in most cases

Well the reason they had to use a bull whip was for motivation. The blacks were unmotivated to pick the cotton on their own. It wasn't going to pick itself. The use of the whip was just a management technique.

The plight and decent of the black man started the minute the white man put the bull whip down.

Agreed motivate me baby, remember the only reason we are free is cause the white men became weak, they are all gay or cowards now, no real men to motivate us.

I am sure your forefathers are so disappointed in how weak and uselessly you white men have become. Image if they had a time machine and came to this time, they would be out there gathering the black people up cracking the whip.

Of course they would kill all the current white men for being such an embarrassment to them.

That was my point. The more things change, the more they stay the same. What's worse, being a slave, or facing a system where there's a 50% you'll be arrested by age of 23, or a 73% chance that you wont know who your father is.

Slavery and Jim Crow seems to have completely destroyed the black family and culture. Are things really better today than 150 years ago? At least, in the days of slavery the George Zimmerman's of the world (escaped slave hunters) would have faced consequences for killing an Afro-American.
