People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway. Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

Welcome to the world of the idiotic stupid black pawns of America. Peddling guilt and pity for afriKANTS in America is an industry much larger than anything Carlos Slim, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Waltons Inc or any other rich person could ever imagine. The evil savage monsters are being used and set up for the biggest fall any ethnic group has ever experienced. I will enjoy seeing the day.

After playing the games for 20 minutes, participants who played as black avatars were more likely to link photos of black faces with weapons, while those who played as white characters associated white faces with objects such as mobile phones.
They were also asked to respond to statements measured on a “symbolic racism scale” such as,“If blacks would only try harder, they could be just as well off as whites.”
Participants were also tested on a seemingly unrelated food preferences test in which they tested hot sauce, and then were asked how much another person would like the spicy food.
Among players of the violent game, those who used a black avatar gave their “partner” more hot sauce compared to those who used a white avatar. The black avatar participants gave the hypothetical food “partner” more than double (115 percent) the amount of chili sauce than participants who played as white avatars.
The researchers suggested this element of the study was “particularly noteworthy,” because “this increase in aggression occurred over and above any increase in aggression among participants playing the violent game as a white avatar.”
In addition to negative attitudes held toward black people, the study noted that women and police were depicted negatively in a way that may have aggressive effects following gameplay.
“Police are portrayed as brutal. Players witnessing or enacting these violent actions may develop a distrust of police,” write the researchers.“Other violent games portray women in a sexualized and stereotypic way” that may impact male attitudes toward women in their real lives.
According to FBI data on violent crime and murder rates, in 2012, an estimated 1,214,462 violent crimes occurred nationwide, an increase of 0.7 percent from the 2011 estimate. Of the 12,765 murder victims in 2012 for which supplemental data were received, most (77.7 percent) were male.
Concerning murder victims for whom race was known, 51.1 percent were black, 46.3 percent were white, and 2.6 percent were of other races. Race was unknown for 130 victims. Of the offenders for whom race was known, 52.4 percent were black, 45.2 percent were white, and 2.4 percent were of other races. The race was unknown for 4,077 offenders.

Columbus, Ohio (CBS CLEVELAND)– Violent video games encourage negative racial attitudes and thoughts, with white game players displaying stronger implicit and explicit aggressive attitudes toward blacks when they play as black characters.
A new study from researchers at The Ohio State University and the University of Michigan finds that white gamers who played as black avatars exhibited more racist sentiments, including connections made between blacks and weapons and photos of black people being linked to words such as “horrible” and “evil.”
“This is a very troubling finding,” the researchers write in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science.
“Our research suggests that people who play violent video games as violent black characters are more likely to believe that blacks are violent people,” writes a research team led by Grace Yang of the University of Michigan and Brad Bushman of the Ohio State University.“Playing a violent video game as a black character reinforces harmful stereotypes that blacks are violent.”
The study examined the effects of playing violent video games as a black avatar (versus a white character) on racial stereotypes and aggression. Games such as Grand Theft Auto V and Saints Row 2 allow players to choose the race of their character, and the study findings suggest that a player’s aggression against others is increased “immediately afterwards” in some cases,“even more than playing a violent game as white characters would.”
“The media has the power to perpetuate the stereotype that blacks are violent, and this is certainly seen in video games,” Bushman told The Daily Mail.“This violent stereotype may be more prevalent in video games than in any other form of media because being a black character in a video game is almost synonymous with being a violent character.”
In a second portion of the study, 141 white college students – 65 percent being female — played one of two games: WWE Smackdown vs. RAW 2010, or Fight Night Round 4. They spent equal time playing as both black and white avatars.
Half the participants in one portion of the study played a violent game in which they attempted to break out of prison,“which required them to kill many guards.” Others played a non-violent game in which they were tasked with finding “a chapel somewhere in the city,” and to refrain from harming others.

<quoted text> Ok Patriot, Darwin had a theory and that's all, it wasn't facts. Evolution, no. We were created by God, all of us in his image and although God is Spirit he himself came to this earth as Jesus Christ. Black skin started way before slavery, and black people weren't the only slaves. Evidently Darwin never read the word of God and like I said, his was just theory. However, you can believe what ever you want. God doesn't judge us on the color of our skin, he judges us on what we say , what we do and what we fail to do as human beings. That being said, I think we could all try to do better in this life because I do believe in eternal life and what comes after. Have a good day.
Sorry but what Darwin was referring to wasnt about his theory of evolution. It was simply his opinion on the AfriKANTS after observing and studying them. To put it clearly they are a dumb bunch of beats who nhad never accomplished anything before outside intervention. Not a wheel, not a raft not a stone spaer point, nothing. And to this day they havent changed much!

Did Darwin ever harness any large African animals and use them for labor? Even in todays world African elephants have killed people at shows here in the US, along with lions and tigers as well.. And you believe that an African hippo can be tamed to plow your fields... hahahahahha!!

Darwin was either an idiot, or he didn't make the statement... So show us your source as to where you get your information from concerning Darwin, or shut the f$$k up and go back to the kiddies table...

Then why are you referring to what Darwin wrote in a public debate if you are speaking from your own personal experience? Have you harnessed any Africans hippo's lately?

What does harnessing hippo's have to do with the discussion?
Perhaps my personal experience and Darwin's experience are the same in some respects.
So what?....So are billions of other peoples experiences.
How can you and Darwin have the same personal experience when Darwin lived in a different time?

The only thing that you have proven here is that you can't stand on your own 2 feet in debate without a crutch, such as Darwin..

You are a coward... And I would also bet that you never even read the book, you just search for quoits on the net and paste them as you see fit.. Kind of like a security blanket for babyboys such as yourself...

This opinión by Charles Darwin was a study of history and just as true then as it it now. Anyone who wants to argue his documented observances is welcome to do so. But please explain just what the AfriKANTS were doing with the diamonds before the White man arrived? And just where is any evidence of a form of transportation such as a wagon or cart? Show us any proff of Stone spear points or arrowheads. Also include any proff of adobe, brick or hand hewn wooden shelters while youre at it. And please spare us the joke about taming a hippopotamus hahaha. The Watusi is a breed of cattle from Afrika and they too were overlooked as anything but a God to those cannibal swahili beasts until the White man arrived.
To put it plainly Afrikants are a worthless pitiful dumb bunch of beasts and thats all Darwin was pointing out. And he done so long before any of you racist Whitey haters were born. So just STFU and accept your history lesson for life. It aint changed a bit sambos and tiluses hahaha.
"Since the dawn of history the Negr0 has owned the continent of Africa – rich beyond the dream of poet’s fancy, crunching acres of diamonds beneath his bare black feet and yet he never picked one up from the dust until a white man showed to him its glittering light.
His land swarmed with powerful and docile animals, yet he never dreamed a harness, cart, or sled.
A hunter by necessity, he never made an axe, spear, or arrowhead worth preserving beyond the moment of its use. He lived as an ox, content to graze for an hour.
In a land of stone and timber he never sawed a foot of lumber, carved a block, or built a house save of broken sticks and mud.
With league on league of ocean strand and miles of inland seas, for four thousand years he watched their surface ripple under the wind, heard the thunder of the surf on his beach, the howl of the storm over his head, gazed on the dim blue horizon calling him to worlds that lie beyond, and yet he never dreamed a sail.”

Why was the white man chasing after the black folks with diamonds under their feet? They could have been rich beyond their dreams if they just picked up all the diamonds instead of chasing after the blacks folks.. Why didn't the whitemen have large African animals on their slave ships instead of black men women and children to do the slave labor in the fields?

If you want to speak for Darwin, you better come back with something other the a quot or I will rub you face in it.... Just like I have done here...
