The fact that this forum still talks about slaves speaks volumes about how segregated black people want to remain.

And the fact that you're constantly on this forum making stupid racist comments makes us really feel that way. By the way, again, you have NO idea WTF you're talking about. Again, quit channelling Oh_Really or sharing his pea brain.

That's because I like to use examples when I talk about racist morons. Do you feel left out? You want me to use your name as an example?

I think a lot of Black in America had a great grand parent who was a slave owner. Why? Cause the slave owner fathered children by slaves. And then put his children into slavery!!!! So White people not only owe us reparations, but child support

I don't see the logic behind that statement, it's part of American history...of course people are going to talk about it. It's no different from how the Irish talk about their own history being ruled by the Brits (which is alot)
