Bawawah!
stop acting like a child screaming itís not fair. The sins of our father are not of our own... Yes white people in the PAST mistreated Blacks and its deplorable. BUT two wrongs donít make a right and all this does is create racism and empower white supremacists and help them recruit.
It wasnít right when white people did it and itís not right if any other race does it.
Oh and vote for Herman Cain for president!

The mistreatment was 400 years ago. Get over it!! Try and redeem your race instead of being a bunch of sue happy apes.

This is another short sighted mantra.

Slavery Officially ended in 1865. In Actually. It was probably over 5-7 years after that. 100 years later. There was the Civil Rights Act. That basically ended systematic government mistreatment of Blacks. But socially. Black still faced mistreat from Whites. While Police Officers hosing down little girls might seem to be a fun day at the park for you. I personally see that as mistreatment. In fact, Lawrence Russell Brewer was executed last week for the dragging death of a Black man.

Now, I'm not Blind. I realize that things for Black Americans are better than they have ever been in this country. I also realize that the majority of issues affecting Black Americans are mainly self inflicted. But this notion of "it was 400 years ago. Get over it." That does seem a little ridiculous. Black people should never forget. We should understand, and not allow past transgressions to be a crutch. But get over it no.

Tap-dance around it all you want, they are no longer slaves to anyone but themselves. They want equality, they want respect, they want racism abolished? How about cleaning up your act? How about acting like a human instead of concerning yourself with slavery?

How about the idiotic lawsuit to obtain monies for the relatives of former slaves? Greed drives their every being.

They are nothing more than trash, like every other minority. Prove to the world you are worth the oxygen you take up and maybe the rest of the world will accept you.

You people are completely and totally deranged. Me, screaming it's not fair? Can you read? A whiny white person created this thread. Whites are the ones not only whining on this thread but all over the forum! Stop acting like spoiled and entitled children who can't understand what they've done wrong and why people are pissed off at them!

Aren't you the humble one now, lol. Taking up space and using up the Oxgen? Earth to so called superior white person, your race is only 13% of the population. Therefore, in my estimation, what you just posted means as much to the world as a fly taking a dump.

Wrap your egostical mind around that concept if you have enough grey matter.

Does what I say sound unfair....NO! Blacks do wrong all the time and here is a key factor PEOPLE do wrong all the time and by ur comments I see that you are still blinded by race and think you are entitled to something which is BS I donít care what color you are people who think they are entitled to something are just ignorant POS.

Yes I read you whining perfectly fine.

You were never a slave or know a slave. I never owened a slave nor did my parents grandparents or anyone else in my family. In fact the North where i am from helped free the slaves.

You are obviously a bigot. "You people" are derranged.

Look at some of the stupidty...
Blacks file Class Action Racial Discrimination Suit Against Obama & Democrats
Perryman said President Obama was named as a defendant not only because he is the official leader of the Democratic Party, but because of certain statements he made about his own party in his book, Dreams from My Father. In 2009, the President was asked to issue an apology to blacks on behalf of his party, but he refused. Unlike other reparations lawsuits, this lawsuit merely asks for a public apology, but no monetary damages.

Once again you displayed class and tact that these functionally illiterate posters cannot display. They rant and rave over things they have little understanding of so convinced of the things they've been told or read.

The American educational system is really lacking when it puts out people with such limited cognitive skills.

Yeah, you all are getting good at parroting the same old refrains. Disagree with you and we're racists and hypocrites, LOL!

I suggest you take a long look in the mirror. There you will see the face of the racist and the hypocrite.

Rarely do I agree with you but I do here. Blacks want white to accept them as equals, on THEIR terms.

Wanna know why? Because some long lost ancestor was a slave. GET OVER IT!!!

Look, you'll have to work out your racial angst and frustrations on some other blacks. Maybe a Black therapist. I don't recall anything in my post about slavery, or being a slave or you owning one. Most whites were lower class and were serfs themselves. The upper class southern whites did. Perhaps your ancestors were sharecroppers or overseers, matters not to me. I will not allow you to make yourself feel superior and act as if you have some kind of beef, you don't.

Last time I looked, this is an opinion forum and I am sharing mine. When I read the constitution, it guaranteed freedom of speech. If you don't like what I post don't read them. However, this is an AA Forum for and about AA issues and no one said you had to personally like them, agree with them or read them. Trust and believe I will express my opinions and there's absolutely nothing you can do about it.

Enjoy your day....I am enjoying mine.

More Tap dancing. Listen, blacks and PR's have little to no meaning in this world and they are still considered minorities. They are also associated with ghetto behavior, drug dealing, gangs, get my drift?

So by your estimation, my race takes up far less space in America, but isn't associated with all of the above criminal activities. Sure, they are in the game, but when someone thinks of a gang banger, they picture a black or PR or even an asian. IF someone thinks of a drug dealer, or a car jacker, black, PR or asian.

If I were a part of one of those races, I would be embarrassed. I'm proud of my race, I would be proud to be associated with other races, if they could stop acting like animals.

They are too hung up on being "oppressed" to clean up their act. It's the white mans fault that their relative was a slave and now they are a criminal? Yeah right...
