Read the paper and expand your mind .Stop being part of the Black Club and face the truth !
To move ahead in life One must first except the truth .
Did you know that Conrad Black who married into a Jewish family owned over 200 newspapers, he is currently in Federal prison, what did you say the truth came from?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conrad_Black

You are correct to move ahead in life one must accept the truth, but not from the devil.

As for statistics, numbers don't tell you the facts behind the numbers, I could say that most White women are underpayed; does that mean they are lazy? Or don't do as well a job as White men?

Stop believing everything you hear or read, verify it is what the Qur'an says.

Black people seem to think that everything is transferable. Their ancestors were slaves or discriminated against, and this is an excuse for modern violence and crime, a small percentage of Whites had slaves in the US 150 years ago, and this is a reason to hate, physically and sexually assault Whites 100 years later in every Western country
Are you saying that millions of Blacks in the American south, Caribbean, and South America were owned by a handfull of Whites?

What history books are you reading from?

My contention and I can only speak for myself is that the most violent societies on earth are those either culturally European or under some European occupation, now verify what I just posted.

The overwhelming majorty of human suffering over the last century has tied someone to slavery, colonialism, or European war and occupation.

If it's a Black problem why are murder rates so high in the African American community and so low in West African countries like Mali, Gambia, and Senegal.

I asked this question to a Professor and he attributed the reletive peace in West Africa to European colonialism. I was ready for him, so now he has to explain why the former French African colony of Senegal has one of the lowest murder rates in the world, and Haiti another former French colony has one of the highest even though the GDP of Hait is slightly higher than that of Senegal totally destroying the excuse that poverty is linked to crime.

The truth is the people of Senegal are Muslims, and their brothers in Haiti are not.

There's alot of Good changes taking place in the Black Communities. I dropped out of school when i was 16 and got received my G.E.D at 17
went to College and have my own Business
A BW. When i was in High School, i learned nothing because the things AA children need to be taught, isn't applied in the schools. Not maing an excuse but who wants to attend to a school who isn't giving you the proper feeding you need. The only difference is our Youth need to be taught a discipline of not giving up but an AA can receive more education at home than in school but the parent or parents need to be aware of that.

Most stats I've seen show less than 10% of Americans owning slaves at the time of the Civil War, while that's more than a handful, it's hardly an overwhelming number. Haiti became independent in 1804, selling slaves became illegal in Britain in 1807, you're great grandfathers weren't even a twinkle in the eye at that point, you can only blame slavery for so long. The most violent societies are European, I had no idea the Hutus were European, that Europeans were hunting and eating Pygmies in Africa and using their genitals as good luck charms, Japanese actions in WW2 against Koreans and Chinese were the fault of Euros as well I suppose?

Slavery should not be forgotten because of the travesty involved, just as native americans should not be ignored for what they sacrified! History is history and will always be remembered and noted (both good and bad). With that said, our community has more opportunities than ever before in America and I am proud we continue to make strides in that area. Slavery is history and should no longer be used as some sort of crutch or guilt trip for our current environment. We need to show we can stand on our own and make something of ourselves in modern society and our economy as a whole should look to create more jobs (go green, etc) to allow people of all races, and walks of life to have employment. Hell, we are the greatest country on earth, can make a computer the size of a thumbnail, so I can;t see why we can't come up with solutions for enabling all Americans to become the "working class" again! And I ain't talkin bout Communism for all u haters out there. The more companies help those to work the more these people (now working) will be able to buy their product.
