Get over it, you lazy, welfare-sucking, no-job-having loser. You have all the same rights and liberties I have. You're just too lazy to use them. Or perhaps, based on your writing, you're just too dumb.

Of course white people want blacks and every one else it explots to forget, no not so quick.
Now, what you should be saying is what can we white people do that would put some balance in black peoples lives. The only way this can be done at this day and age, is for reperations to be paid to us black people.
However, to you white folks that would be to good for you to do, but you know what, there is a God, and he is about balance, and we will be avenged, because what so ever a man sowth, that is what he will reap.
Remember, 911, mostly whites were killed, and there will be other events that shall happen, until you white folk do right by us. So continue on with your arrengence and biggotery. You will pay.
sounds like you never heard of affirmative action.

SLAVERY?? Like I had ANYTHING to do with that? I am not proud of being white, nor am I ashamed of it.

Comments like these and probably this persons attitude is the reason why racism will never stop.

What happened in 9/11 was meant to harm as much AMERICANS as possible. Black/White/Asian/Hispanics... didn't matter. What a stupid statement.

I'm not suggesting that you or anyone else forget it. We can't. It was too big a part of our history and and there are still too many reminders today. It is a part of all of us, and forgetting it will allow it to happen again.

I am suggesting that you get over the anger. Being angry at me for what my ancestors did won't resolve anything.

And I'm not benefitting at all! My grandparents and parents were all poor dirt farmers, barely able to eke out a living. Whatever "benefits" my ancestors got from slave work was gone long before I was born.

Richard, what can I, as an individual, do to "do right" by you? What would you like me to do?

This topic is dumb and it was probably started by a white person. i don't know any black people that dislike or think negatively about white people because of slavery. Only a white person would assume we do. Everything positive and negative i think about anyone is based on personal experiences, not something that happened 200 years ago.

white people do seem to want blacks and everyone else to forget about the past, even though we are reminded of the past everyday of our lifes, and that's not right. I also agree that there should be and there is an effort to offset the events of the past. But i don't think reperations is the anwser. Slavery shouldn't be viewed as a crime against individuals, it's a crime against a whole race. We need more money in the innercity education system because black people need to make up for the years where blacks couldn't go to school. that's a good start

My grandparents were either Irish, which were hated more than blacks, or were poorer than dirt, picking cotton side by side with black people to eat dinner that night. Forgive me? For what? Never owning a slave, working my ass off to succeed in life rather than demanding reparations for something that never affected me?

Lose the hate, it'll get you know where. But if you have to hate, direct it towards jessie jackson and al sharpton for keeping the hate and racism alive!

a lot of whites were indentured servants, sometimes sold for life , or as a punishment. The English did this, and also we sent convicts to Australia - where they eventually did quite well. The difference is that the whites descended from these "victims" do not whine about it constantly and demand compenastion for it.

What if African tribes hadn't sold their own
countrymen (captured prisoners) to the DUTCH
EAST INDIES TRADING CO.? What if they had joined forces and driven the slavers away?
Where would the tribespeople of Africa be
now? Don't blame the U.S. we didn't start
slavery, just the last customer in a long line
go get reparations from the DEITC.
If the great cultures of Africa had been
allowed to flourish, to have an intellectual
period as europe did, to build unniversities
as europe did, where would they be now?
But, Tribal mentality still rules in Africa.
and violence, and bloodshed is the norm.
IF intellect ruled Africa with farming, irri-
gation, production, jobs ,trade, education,
and the Christian faith, where would they be
today ? But Dictators, and Tyrants rule with
brute force, they rob, steal, rape, loot just
like bullies, they employ thugs, to grind the
working people down, and steal the foreign aid
to live in palaces while poverty is rampant.
You want to "get even" to prove you are as
great as europeans, go fix your "own house"
first. Go to Zimbabwe to see the ruins of
Rhodesia. Go to South Africa and see the crime
run amok. Rwunada, The Congo, Sudan, Mogadiesu.
The list is as long as the centuries.
There is still slavery in africa to this day.
Europeans did not bring it to africa, it was
already there.

People convicted of crimes in England were often sent to Australia or America to service out their sentence. So theoretically, Americans could be the children of indentured servants.

And the phrase is "I couldn't care less." As you phrased it, you could possibly care less. I don't think that's what you meant.

We should all strive to free ourselves and our children from the slavery of IGNORANCE. We should learn from the past we are NOT responsible for it. What is done is done. We are however responsible for the present and in some capacity the future.

Perhaps you should take pride in what you have accomplished in life, which is something over which you have control. The color of your skin and the origin of your ancestry is not. Why should I feel proud of something over which I have no control? I am an American by birth and am glad of it, but I did nothing to accomplish it. I am female by birth and am glad of it, but I did nothing to accomplish that either. I do, however, have lots of things about which I am proud that have nothing to do with my race, my sex or my nationality. Taking pride in something you had nothing to do with is just silly. Show me the content of your character.
