I am a black and I have always found it interesting how white people created this whole color system and led people to believe that the color of your skin really matters in life. It is so weird how they separated their people from the rest of the world. Yet a lot of whites are intelligent. Just look at how they figured out that they are able to control minds by creating the illusion of skin color matters...you see so many hopeless minorities who fell for the trick and as a result they mope around in the hood and CONSTANTLY dwell on misery because they feel bad about being black. ITS SO STRANGE!! This is coming from an educated man. However in the hood im considered "not a real black" because I don't believe the white lies about race superiority.

Edwal --- Your points here.--- You said "and led people to believe that the color of your skin really matters in life. Just look at how they figured out that they are able to control minds by creating the illusion of skin color matters".---

With all due respect, you saying that it is about "skin color", is totally off the mark.

African Americans skin color wasn't & still is NOT the critical factor. African Americans behavior, actions & attitudes was & still is the factor.

Here's an example.--- The phenomenon of "White Flight".--- From the 1960s till now, tens of millions of White families have fled from Americas urban centers to the suburbs. These tens of millions of White families were fleeing from African Americans NOT because of African Americans skin color. These tens of millions of White families were fleeing from African Americans murders, rapes, gangs, drug dealing, pimping, prostitution, robberies, burglaries, carjackings, assaults & thefts.

African Americans skin color was NOT the factor.

African Americans behavior, actions & attitudes WAS the factor.

Edwal --- The racial divide between African Americans & White Americans goes MUCH farther than "just" race or skin color.

It also entails VERY deep divisions regarding ideology & class. Very deep divisions regarding differences of culture, behavior, actions & attitudes. In addition, very deep divisions regarding differences of talking & reacting.

Just glancing over Topixs "Top Stories" forum & Topixs "African American" forum shows that there are very, very deep divisions between African Americans & White Americans in this nation.

Throughout this nation, the divisions & polarization is further compounded by differences in ideology as well as class.

An example.--- An area such as Beverly Hills compared to Watts.--- The differences between Beverly Hills compared to Watts entails WAY more than just differences of "race" or skin color.

The differences entail class as well as behavior, actions & attitudes.

African Americans & White Americans will never be close in this nation.

The interests of White Americans & African Americans are not in harmony in this nation.

They will become more discordant as time passes.

Hispanics (Afro-Latinos included) are Americas sleeping giant as well as future. Hispanics have several critical sectors of American society on their side & in their favor. Here they are.--- 1. Politicians in the federal gov't. 2. American businesses. 3. American business lobby. 4. North American Union (NAU) being in full effect.

In years to come, these will be the major & top groups in America.--- 1. Non-Hispanic Whites. 2. Hispanics. Among the Hispanics, the 2 major & top Hispanic groups will be the Mexicans & the Dominicans.

Edwal --- In your one previous post, you used the term "minorities".--- You cannot lump Americas respective "minority groups" in the same boat. This is why.--- They all come from different histories & cultures.

In addition, the respective "American experiences" are all different & distinct from the other.

Even more so, their personal dealings & interactions with Americas non-Hispanic White majority is different & distinct from the other.

Here are some examples.--- 1. Dominican-Americans come from a different history & culture than African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves). Dominican-Americans "American experience" has been different & distinct compared to African Americans "American experience".

Even more so, Dominican-Americans personal dealings & interactions with Americas non-Hispanic White majority has been different & distinct compared to African Americans personal dealings & interactions with Americas non-Hispanic White majority.

2. Mexican-Americans come from a different history & culture than African Americans. Mexican-Americans "American experience" has been different & distinct compared to African Americans "American experience.

Even more so, Mexican-Americans personal dealings & interactions with Americas non-Hispanic White majority has been different & distinct compared to African Americans personal dealings & interactions with Americas non-Hispanic White majority.

3. Asian-Americans come from a different history & culture compared to African Americans. Asian-Americans "American experience" has been different & distinct compared to African Americans "American experience".

Even more so, Asian-Americans personal dealings & interactions with Americas non-Hispanic White majority has been different & distinct compared to African Americans personal dealings & interactions with Americas non-Hispanic White majority.

In addition, Asian-Americans have been & are currently known as being Americas -- "Model minority".

Here's another example.--- Black Africans in America whose ancestors migrated to this nation from the 1960s till now (Nigerian-Americans, Ghanaian-Americans, Senegalese-Americans, Ethiopian-Americans, Eritrean-Americans & Somalian-Americans) are now being called another one of Americas "model minority" groups.

Subsequently, one CANNOT lump Americas minority groups in the same boat.

Edwal, you are one funny guy.
Nobody, BUT nobody is more conscious and predjudiced about skin color than African-Americans.

You even pointed it out yourself in the last line of your post.
"However in the hood im considered "not a real black" because I don't believe the white lies about race superiority."

My family is mixed and it is funny to hear the response from other blacks.
"You aren't black, you're High Yeller."
"You're so light you'd be the house Ni***r"
"You're not American, You're black dark African"
"A real Coffee and Cream"

African-Americans can subdivide their color more than any other ethnic group on the planet.
You might be fooling yourself, but don't try to fool me.

Who cares, as long as your not racist. As long as you see through the mist. there're people out there who complain and whine about the color of your skin, really... you can make it in this country regardless. Good education, hard work and determination can make even the most minor of minorities see the world in a different light.

are attitudes are not a factor. race was first and foremost. you people stereotype us based off the color of our skin. you do alot of things based off the color of our skin. maybe you can answer this, why do you all dislike us so much???? there is so much jealousy and it has to be something we got that you want, or should i say already took. why do you all steal so much and in abudance. it seems like everywhere white people step foot they bring chaos. they walk around here like they are so superior to everyone, and it's actually humorous. i think ya'll are crazy, especially for killing all the kids in the classroom. white people are known for things like that, i wouldn't mind being separated from ya'll. i have never felt like an american and don't acknowledge the title, and what did ya'll do with all the NATIVE PEOPLES of this land; it's like they are almost extinct

FROM MY BLACKNESS ---- You said "race was first and foremost".--- From 1776 till 1964, somewhat true. Primarily not true.

Examples of this.--- 1. Way, way BEFORE any of African Americans ancestors were brought to Americas 13 colonies, Whites were Allies to black African Kingdoms.

Way, way BEFORE any Whites ever traveled to any black African nation, African Americans ancestors were already enslaved. African Americans were already enslaved by rival, black African tribes.

African Americans ancestors were enslaved by these rival, black African tribes was because they were the losers in battle.

This is why African Americans ancestors were enslaved by these rival, black African tribes.

Had the Whites not purchased African Americans ancestors, they would have been neutralized at the hands of these rival, black African tribes.

American slavery was way more HUMANE. Compared to black African slavery.

MOST black Africans in the Sub-Saharan African nations were pro-slavery.

Had most black Africans been against slavery which was being practiced on the continent of Africa, there is absolutely NO way that slavery would have lasted for thousands of years in black African nations.

An example.-- Which shows that black African nations were NOT against slavery.-- Several years prior to when the governments of the United States (US), the nations of Central America, South America & the Caribbean were to ban slavery.

The black African Kingdoms in West Africa got word of this.

The black African rulers sent many of their emissaries. To talk directly to the governmental leaders in the US, the nations of Central America, South America & the Caribbean.

To try to talk them into not banning slavery.

Because these black African Kingdoms in West Africa were profiting so immensely from the slave trade.

Due to the institution of slavery in the nations of this hemisphere.

FROM MY BLACKNESS --- You said "race was first and foremost".--- Somewhat true. Primarily not true.

Examples. Before 1964.--- When the United States (US) had the institution of legal segregation in operation. Primarily from 1902 till 1964.

Even in the states of the southern US.--- Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana & Texas.---

1. Afro-Latino baseball players from the Dominican Repubic (DR), Cuba, Puerto Rico, Venezuela & Colombia were given a pass by non-Hispanic Whites.

Non-Hispanic White hotel owners & managers allowed Afro-Latino baseball players from the Dominican Republic (DR), Cuba, Puerto Rico, Venezuela & Colombia to say at their respective hotels.

2. When the US had the institution of legal segregation in operation. Primarily from 1902 till 1964.

Even in the states of the southern US.-- Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana & Texas.---

Non-Hispanic White owners & managers of restaurants allowed Afro-Latino baseball players from the Dominican Republic (DR), Cuba, Puerto Rico, Venezuela & Colombia to eat at their establishments.

But, at the same time, non-Hispanic White owners & managers of hotels & restaurants did NOT allow African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves) at their establishments.

FROM MY BLACKNESS --- You said "why do you dislike us so much??? there is so much jealousy".--- People are not jealous of African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves) at all.

People have disgust, contempt & disdain for African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves).

Even foreign born blacks (Afro-Latinos, blacks from the Anglophone, French / Creole speaking Caribbean black nations & from Africa) also have disgust, contempt & disdain for African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves).

FROM MY BLACKNESS ---- You said "are attitudes are not a factor".--- Uh, it is ALL because of African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves) behavior, actions & attitudes.

This is what has caused & what is currently causing the racial divide & polarization in the United States (US).---

1. When African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves) play the race card whenever things don't go their way.

2. When African Americans blame all Whites who are living in America today. For the things which SOME Whites did way, way back.

3. When African Americans use slavery as a crutch & as an excuse.

4. When African Americans play the martyr & victim.

5. When African Americans make demands for more free handouts, entitlements & reparations.

6. When African Americans commit crimes.

7. African American dudes getting young girls pregnant.

8. Young African American girls getting pregnant.

9. African American kids dropping out of high school.

10. African Americans being on welfare & other entitlements.

11. African Americans launching very frivolous lawsuits.

12. African Americans being lazy & insubordinate.

13. African American fathers being deadbeats.

14. African American mothers being neglectful.

It is ALL about ones behavior, actions & attitudes.

FROM MY BLACKNESS ---- You said "it seems like everywhere white people step foot they bring chaos".--- Totally not true.

Whites are a VERY beneficial force throughout the world.

Whites have MANY Allies throughout the world. Primarily in black, Sub-Saharan African nations.

Whites have done PLENTY to help the nations of the developing world. Especially to help the black, Sub-Saharan African nations.

Here are many examples of this.----

1. Whites have built roads.

2. Whites built railways.

3. Whites built the urban infrastructures. Especially the urban infrastructures of black African nations.

4. Whites built schools.

5. Whites built hospitals.

6. Whites built airports.

7. Whites cultivated fields.

8. Whites improved agriculture.

9. Whites improved the farming methods.

10. Whites provided fresh water.

11. Whites built reservoirs.

12. Whites provided clothing. Primarily shoes, pants & dresses.

13. Whites provided school books.

14. Whites improved sanitation.

15. Whites provided medicines.

16. Whites built industries.

17. Whites cultivated the raw materials.

So, looking at ALL of the things which Whites have done to help the developing world. Especially to help the black, Sub-Saharan African nations.--- Whites SURE have empathy towards other races.

FROM MY BLACKNESS --- You said "i think ya'll crazy, especially for killing all the kids in the classroom".--- I do remember this incident of that kid opening fire on those kids in the classroom.

That kid was strung out on drugs. That kid is NOT representative of most Whites.

After that kid did that very dastardly & cowardly act.--- Americas White-American masses collectively came out & condemned what that kid did.

FROM MY BLACKNESS --- You said "and what did ya'll do with all the NATIVE PEOPLES".--- Not I nor my ancestors. My mothers family came to the United States (US) back in the late 1950s. From Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (DR). My fathers family came to the US back in the late 1950s. From Rome, Italy.

So, my relatives had absolutely nothing to do with this stuff.

Most Whites who are living in America today, their ancestors came to the US way, way after the US federal government had its armed wars against a few of the Native American tribes.

What happened way, way back, one has to look at the dynamic in its entirety.--- Way, way before any Whites ever came to the land which was to eventually become the US.---

Native-American tribes were engaged in constant, continual warfare among themselves.

Way before any Whites ever came to this nation,
this land was way less developed.

When the US army undertook ventures against troublesome Native-American tribes, the American army took extreme PRECAUTION to avoid civilian casualties.

It was war.

Some of the Native-American tribes were Allies of the Whites.

FROM MY BLACKNESS --- Your last point here.---- You said "it's like they are almost extinct".--- Not at all.

One CANNOT blame the United States (US) federal government.

For many generations, the federal government has given A LOT of aid to Native Americans.

One such example.---- The federal government allowing the casinos to operate on Native American territory.

For many decades now, Native Americans very tragic problems of alcoholism, suicides, truancy from school & dropping out of school is the result of self destructive behaviors from within.

I read over the comments and it looks like alot of them are really off topic.

anyway- I wanted to say that I do agree with you- but only to an extent. I do beleive white people did invent this system of color that benefits only them. However, their entire system has backfired on them. There are much less white people in this world than people who contain skin pigmentation. There may be less of them but that certainly does not make them attractive by any means.

blue/green eyes, white skin and light hair all are very unnattractive and unnatural features. Now that society is more modernized and evolved we are learning that these features aren't exactly what we should prioritize.

Furthermore, whites are loosing their popularity- most white people dont even like their own culture and race. They have bored themselves to death and are running out of ideas to keep their race interesting and worthy of praise.

The truth is every race has its attractive and unnatractive people

but the white race has the most unnattractive people not solely because of looks, but because of their ignorance developed from living their fatass lifestlyes that have virtually no depth or interest.

Not all white people are bad, maybe i just needed some time to vent because I get angry sometimes at how much people worship them and go through life feeling less for not being white.

anyway, I am white myself
and I despise how white people fucked up the world and dont say anything about a system they know gives them extra privilage when they dont disserve it.

Hopefully it will get fixed and soon enough the people who work hard and are intelligent and beautiful will get to live the lives they disserve.

Your theory only works in the USA or Europe where the whites have always ran & populated nations. Go to Mexico or Japan or China or the middle east and see the fallacy of white superiority theories.

And it's not whites that rule the west it has been the holy roman empire, some who are black i.e. Mandela, Mugabe. Many Roman Catholics are Hispanic. Many are Vietnamese.

Whites did not enslave the Africans, only certain whites did.
