Sorry, I meant to post that comment in another thread. As for this thread, all I really have to say is reinstate slavery.

Can you imagine they'd actually get rid of Social Security but continue to pay these lazy animals who refuse to work? We need change. Change from Obama who supports their lifestyle.

After reading the posts on here, and seeing all the hatred towards blacks and a need for an apology to whites, I decided to speak up on behalf of black people. So here goes:

We black people apologize for being lazy although our ancestors spent 100s of years working for free in order to help advance the lifestyles of White America for many many years to come. And we apologize for trying to live and sometimes having to rely on welfare because of the institutionalized racism that continued in America even after the segregation Jim Crow laws ended. However, I am sure many of the people on this thread who have posted will gladly hire black people at their companies today (laughable). But we apologize nonetheless for trying to get help when there was no other way to survive. And although, we black people are seen as worthless we also apologize for the contributions we made to help ourselves and our white neighbors as well. On behalf of Fredric Jones, the black man who invented the air conditioner so that whites wouldn't sweat their butts off, we black people apologize. On behalf of Benjamin Banneker, the black man who invented the Almanac so that whites could do a better job farming and growing better crops, we apologize. On behalf of the black inventor W.H. Richardson who invented the baby buggy so that whites could transport their babies in a civilized manner, we black people apologize. On behalf of Charles Drew, the black patent holder of the blood plasma bag responsible for saving millions of white lives, we apologize. On behalf of Alexander Miles, the black person who invented the elevator so that whites could build taller buildings and larger offices and then exclude the black population from jobs during this segregated period, we apologize. On behalf of T. Marshall, the black inventor of the fire extinguisher which has saved countless homes from burning to the ground, we black people apologize. On behalf of Garrett Morgan, the black man who invented the gas mask to save many soldiers during the wars, we apologize. On behalf of W.A. Martin the black man who invented the lock (i guess to protect whites' homes from black people) we apologize for this. And we the black people apologize for inventing the guitar, created by Robert Fleming in 1880 so that whites could have great music. For all these things we apologize. And we are also sorry for creating the refrigerator in 1891 by our ancestor J. Standard so that whites could eat fresh food and we could teach them how to properly store meat and other foods. OH yes, and the black race deeply apologizes for also creating the traffic light so that whites may drive more safely and sorry for inventing the typewriter so that you great whites could function more efficiently in your offices. Black people are so sorry for inventing chess, blues, jazz and good old rock and roll so that white lives can be that more enjoyable. Oh please accept this deep apology from the black race. And most of all we apologize on behalf of Africa itself, for being the cradle of life and the beginning of all civilization. Will you the white race honor this apology? Pleeeeeeeeease!?

It's so sad to see how ignorant you people are that sit behind a computer screen and spew the hatred that you do, I find you are simple minded and petty to have time to take the time to type out ignorant statements. Amerikkka will never be the place you think it should be, it was built on lies and the blood of innocent people, all you people want to send everyone back to their country of origins should really think about that statement, this country belonged first to the Indians who had their land stolen, right from beneath them, I am sure they wish you would all go back to where you came from as well. Your time is almost up, and I can't wait to see the day that the last shall come first and the first shall come last. I have nothing but pity for all the computer gangsters out there who think they can hide behind a computer to spew negative words of hate and ignorance.

Gladly.

Let me tell you why whites wont hire blacks.

BECAUSE YOU SOUND LIKE SHIT AND YOURE EMBARRASSING.

NO ONE WANTS TO HEAR YOUR SLANG. WE WILL LOSE OUR CLIENTS IF THEY SEE WHAT KIND OF TRASH WE HIRE.

WE ALL KNOW YOU SPEAK ONE WAY WHEN YOU'RE WITH YOUR GIRLS AND THE OTHER WAY WHEN YOU'RE IN THE COMPANY OF THE REST OF US.

BTW: The only reason why a higher percentage of whites are on welfare is because, Unemployment and Social Security are included in description of WELFARE BENEFITS.

Before you debate me on that fact, do your homework. I know I'm right.
