There is something I want EVERYONE to ponder. It was an unimaginable thing to kidnap Africans and others to force them into deplorable conditions and force them into a life of slavery. But why do the blacks want to blame us living today of what happened to their ancestors? It isnt happening to them today! Here is the thing I want everyone to ponder. Even tho it cant never be ignored and justified, I hope everyone understand that the black Americans today are here BECAUSE their ancestors were kidnapped? If it had not happened, they would be in Africa starving and dieing of deseases and such, IF they were to have been borned AT ALL, They wouldnt have had the chance to live in a nation of a free society, able to be whoever they want to be. The Black Americans ( yes I did not say African Americans, this is AMERICA and NOT Africa) should thank the Almighty that we today have this country to live in, TOGETHER. Everyone should take atleast ONE DAY every year, during black herritage month, to remember all the hundreds of thousands of WHITE and BACK,(yes I said WHITE) men and women that died to abolish slavery instead of bashing anyone that isnt black. I thank GOD for my freedom and for my nation. A terrable thing happened back then, but it is OVER! It isnt that way any more! Please stop playing the 'race card'... If you close your eyes to my 'lack of color' then I will close my eyes to your color...
It would be easy to forget skin pigment if we all lived as ONE and not segregated....

Kidnapped? really? You and everyone else who believe that are fools. I do like your idea about referring to blacks as "black Americans" opposed to "African Americans". I would suggest it go one step further and just be "Americans".

And would it hurt you people on topix to use a little spell check once in a while? Get Firefox its built into it and its free, much better than internet explorer. Stay useless!

Regardless of what everyone wants blacks nd every other origin of people are nd forever will be apart of this world. Blacks are nt the only people making fucking up..let's see if we pull this part nd looked at it from a blacks prespective. All the school shootings reported are done by...WHITES, who comments more foolish suicides...Whites, who is usually named in child porn stings...Whites, who is usually the ones on the news for killing there families nd taken families hostage...Whites. That's just to name a few so if u wanna get technical more white people are known to do more selfish acts than the blacks or any other origin. And yes I am black nd very proud of it. So lets not just throw blacks under the bus when whites are just as guilty.

I'm certinly NOT throwing you or any blacks under the buss. GOD made ALL races and HE did so because HE wanted it that way. I'm sayiing, DONT throw up the 'it's because im black' crap when it should be judges same for all colors. Please dont be saying only whites do wrong. Have you just followed the nightly news in Louisville alone?? Come on, dont play the race card friend. Like I said, If you close your eyes to my lack of color I will close my eyes to your skin color. I WILL NOT however, accept prejudice or attitude problems.

For the record, black tribes captured and sold other black tribes to the slave purveyors. It is in history a.d a highly educated black man argued this fact on topix a year or so ago. Many whites did not have slaves, and quite a few freed blacks, especially in Louisiana, owned black slaves. Blacks born here are black Americans. Not born in Africa? Then you are an American, period.

Bill Cosby Says

Elizabethtown, KY

#22 Apr 10, 2013
BILL HAS GONE AND DONE IT AGAIN...
They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English.
I can't even talk the way these people talk:
Why you ain't,...
Where you is,
What he drive,
Where he stay,
Where he work,
Who you be...
And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk.
And then I heard the father talk.
Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth.
In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living.
People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an Education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around.
The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal.
These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids.
$500 sneakers for what?
And they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.
I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit.
Where were you when he was 2?
Where were you when he was 12?
Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn't know that he had a pistol?
And where is the father? Or who is his father?
People putting their clothes on backward:
Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong?
People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn't that a sign of something?
Isn't it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?
What part of Africa did this come from??
We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don't know a thing about Africa .....
I say this all of the time. It would be like white people saying they are European-American. That is totally stupid.
I was born here, and so were my parents and grand parents and, very likely my great grandparents. I don't have any connection to Africa, no more than white Americans have to Germany , Scotland , England , Ireland , or the Netherlands . The same applies to 99 percent of all the black Americans as regards to Africa . So stop, already!!!
With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap ......... And all of them are in jail.
Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem.
We have got to take the neighborhood back.
People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different 'husbands'-- or men or whatever you call them now.
We have millionaire football players who cannot read.
We have million-dollar basketball players who can't write two paragraphs. We, as black folks have to do a better job.
Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us.
We have to start holding each other to a higher standard..
We cannot blame the white people any longer.'
~Dr.. William Henry 'Bill' Cosby, Jr., Ed..D.
WELL SAID, BILL
It's NOT about color...
It's about behavior!!!
For those who are not sure if Bill Cosby said this, it is corroborated as truth by the website Snopes that is the definitive Internet reference source for urban legends, folklore, myths, rumors, and misinformation.
