Doesn't excuse behavior of those who transported and enslaved them after they left Africa. Two, three wrongs don't make a right.

what?? Slavery?? I thought you KooKooKers try to spread the BS that slavery never existed-I guess you POSers just say whatever you think others like yourself want to hear.carry-on general
Of course slavery existed. I am the one reminding you that it did not exist only in the Southern United States, but in all U.S. States and in every Nation and Country around the world.(Mexico, Cuba, Russia, Europe had slaves as well, and slavery still remains throughout Africa today even though their freedom can be purchased for $10 U.S.).

""Free State" referred to being free from blacks"
Nope, blacks were and have been residents in just about every state in the Union. Free State meant free from slavery.
Lincoln's "colonization" of blacks was more an effort to placate racist whites than anything else. Matter of fact it was totally voluntary but was a proposition that found favor with many blacks who saw no future and evil here in this racist nation. Marcus Garvey proposed a similar emigration plan to relocate blacks to Africa, but his unspoken plan was to create a homeland in Africa that blacks in this country could be based to and identify with in dealing with this nation.
Lincoln too saw blacks forming their own nation in the Carribbean as a means of creating a base much like Garvey attempted in the early Twentieth Century. Also Garvey's "back to Africa" plan helped him get financing from whites for his shipping company, which was very likely his biggest concern because as his company grew but blacks were not going to Africa some of the white financing began to dry up.

The "One Drop Rule" enacted in 1910 and modified 1924 is still in use today (which is why obama is considered the first black president even though he is equally white).

The "One drop rule" means that if you have 1/15th negro (one ancestor up to your great grand parents who was black)or in the modified version 1/31 negro (one black ancestor up to your great great grand parents), then you must assume the identity of the minority race.

Prior to this, one had to trace their ancestry back to the Revolutionary War. If they had one black ancestor during this time, then they had to assume the identity of the minority race.

From what I understand, only 10% of whites owned slaves. How many of the whites are you attacking that immigrated to the USA after slavery ended? How many had ancestors that were dragged here in chains themselves?
Answer to the first question:Doesn't matter to me whether it's 10% or 100% caucasian.You all benefited and continue to benefit from unearned advantages bequeathed to you in large part by the Caucasoid practice of slavery.

Answering 2nd question: every last one..I give no quarter.

Answering 3rd question: I could care less ..

So living on welfare, committing crimes, and murdering your own in the streets like dogs is considered "freedom and self-determination" to blacks.
The fact you deduced that from what I have posted gives further credence to my assertion that the collective intellect of the caucasian is on the wane...But like I always say, you all had one helluva run.

The legacy you leave in your wake is nothing short of extraordinary.

NOTHING in that says "free states" meant there were NO blacks in some states as you alleged. Matter of fact it states just the opposite, that there WERE blacks in states but were free.

"Free states" meant free from slavery, not free from blacks.

It's one of the benefits of being the superior race. Get over it.
If we didn't bring your ancestors here, you would be on a t.v. commercial asking for a sponsor so you could attend school, get fed and have fresh water. So you can see, you benefit from the White race as well.

Superior or not, it's unearned..seems your attitude in such matters conflicts with the caucasian ideals of "rugged indivdualism",bootstrap initiative, self-sufficiency etc. In a way you're openly advocate a kind of *gasp*'Welfare' for caucasians based on being a superior race .

Hmmm..the unearned benefits of Welfare for us is wrong based on our inferiority but for you it's right because your self- proclaimed superiority...Still don't understand why a 'superior' race would have use for Welfare..seems like their 'superiority' alone would eliminate the need for unearned benefits.

Your second spiel of arrogance suggests that you did us a favor bringing us here. To that I say it seems as if we were doing you a favor..Remember caucasian we didnt ask to come here; you brought us here against our will.This fact clearly indicates you needed us a heckuva lot more than we needed you.

Inheritance is not welfare. It is what we do for our children and our descendants. My White ancestors sacrificed in building this blessed Nation, and I will pass on this inheritance to my descendants as well. It's just part of something that we call "love".

Blacks are notoriously selfish, thinking and providing only for themselves.(This is why 69.1% of all black babies born in the U.S. is to a single parent home). Blacks are not entitled to this inheritance nor are they deserving of such.

If you believe that you would be happier back in your African roots, then I would be more than happy to lobby for the continuance of Lincolns deportation program, which would fund your return to the African Continent, or Haiti if you prefer.

Maybe you should try getting "reparations" from their descendants if you blacks think you're owed something, or is it just whites that you're predjudiced against?
