The checks and balances are still there, they like our laws just need to be enforced.

Here's a story about slavery in this land more brutal than the slavery of the African:
They came as slaves; vast human cargo transported on tall British ships bound for the Americas. They were shipped by the hundreds of thousands and included men, women, and even the youngest of children.
Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form of punishment. They were burned alive and had their heads placed on pikes in the marketplace as a warning to other captives.
We don’t really need to go through all of the gory details, do we? We know all too well the atrocities of the African slave trade.
But, are we talking about African slavery? No.
King James II and Charles I also led a continued effort to enslave the Irish. Britain’s famed Oliver Cromwell furthered this practice of dehumanizing one’s next door neighbor.
The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.
Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.
From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.
During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.
Many people today will avoid calling the Irish slaves what they truly were: Slaves. They’ll come up with terms like “Indentured Servants” to describe what occurred to the Irish. However, in most cases from the 17th and 18th centuries, Irish slaves were nothing more than human cattle.
As an example, the African slave trade was just beginning during this same period. It is well recorded that African slaves, not tainted with the stain of the hated Catholic theology and more expensive to purchase, were often treated far better than their Irish counterparts.
African slaves were very expensive during the late 1600s (50 Sterling). Irish slaves came cheap (no more than 5 Sterling). If a planter whipped or branded or beat an Irish slave to death, it was never a crime. A death was a monetary setback, but far cheaper than killing a more expensive African. The English masters quickly began breeding the Irish women for both their own personal pleasure and for greater profit. Children of slaves were themselves slaves, which increased the size of the master’s free workforce. Even if an Irish woman somehow obtained her freedom, her kids would remain slaves of her master. Thus, Irish moms, even with this new found emancipation, would seldom abandon their kids and would remain in servitude.
Funny how that has been ignored and only the plight of the black slave has any merit or distinction anymore.

I couldn't get all of this in one post. Here's the other part:
It wasn't the White Man that enslaved the African. The African enslaved the African. The White Man was merely the purchaser... as well as the culture that ended slavery for most of the world except where slavery is still practiced today in Africa and the Middle East.
As for the Native American disaster, what happened was an industrialized culture came into contact with a stone age culture. Naturally, the industrialized culture took control of the region. If the Native Americans were industrialized, and the Europeans were a stone age culture, eventually the Native Americans would have "discovered" Europe and taken it from them. And, today, there'd be someone like you who wails about the most common event in human history, a more capable culture overtaking a less capable culture.
Exactly, and many blacks don't realize that America wasn't the only purchaser. Britain was a huge port for the trade.

Meanwhile back at the ranch......

WHAT THE 2012 ELECTION TAUGHT US........

Before the election, we were told the economy was growing at a rate of 1.1 percent. Actually our growth rate is .01, below Cuba and China. Wages wont’ change, jobs won’t be produced………elections have consequences. We were lied to again by Obama, the MSM (his boy toys), and the White House. Obama has now reversed history, we are back to being Europe.

Your thoughts.
The Arabs (you embrace) took and sold black, white and brown slaves and sold them to slave traders which also were white, black and Arab. They sold them in America, Africa, England and the Islands. Why is it that you only attack the whites in America that actually freed you? What happened 400 years ago isn't pertinent today. If you don't like it here, Africa is calling you to return to your heritage. See how many free phones and EBT’S you get there.
