You are talking about white western Christian culture, not eastern culture, when you talk about the Aztec situation.
<quoted text>
I already mentioned that George Bush is mixed with Native American. That is usually what happens when different cultures meet.
<quoted text>
Obviously American culture is different from British culture. We do not even speak the same English. One reason for this is the adaptation of Native American culture into American culture. American cultur4e has also adapted a great deal of African culture. For example, American music is derived from African music. Another example is the codification of minority rights. That is derived from the Constitution of Median which was written by Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings be upon him)

Shove it.
You're still an idiot, because people HAVE been exterminated, namely, all who I mentioned and I bet they'd all throw up on top of your head before ripping your parts off for denying they were all wiped out, exterminated, whatever remnant remaining having to be absorbed by their conquerors. Also, no respect for saying Muhammad, the general who lied was a better man than Jesus, the 1st created of God. No respect, dog.

Notice that no intelligent discussion is going on here. All of these great philosophers and "thinkers" are silent every time a new point or issue is raised. Where is their thinking caps now?

Come on clowns. It is getting boring in here. Say something. Ask a question. What is the point of having a forum is I am the ONLY ONE who seems to be thinking at all?

This Nation thought our first Black President would bring races together but he's made race relations worse than 1960's. He instigates riots and looting. When a jury outcome doesn't go his way , they go on a witchunt to find any excuse to charge the guy with.

He must have been a particularly good slave owner considering that I did not know he owned slaves and it took you a couple of hours to find out. At least we have no reason to think that he raped any.

As much s I dislike Pervert in Chief Obama, I am not going to criticize him on this issue. A young boy is dead. And it is Zimmerman's fault, right or wrong. Frankly, I do not care much about this issue. But, you have just pisssed me off.

Not so. That is non-sense. George Washington was a conservative, a member of the Whig Party, the forerunners of the Republicans.
<quoted text>
And most of that has been amended out of the constitution. Slavery has been amended out. Gun control has been amended out. The worse of liberalism has been taken out of the constitution.
<quoted text>
Mighty funny that the Republicans are the ones who ended slavery, not the liberals who supported slavery and still support it.
Republican Party was founded on Progressivism under Lincoln and the Democrats were the True Liberals & the Conservatives who rejected changed and interference from the Federal Government & from Lincoln and the Republicans are the ones who favored Communism.

An Unfinished Revolution: Karl Marx and Abraham Lincoln

by Robin Blackburn, Abraham Lincoln, and Karl Marx

The impact of the American Civil War on Karl Marx, and Karl Marx on America.

Karl Marx and Abraham Lincoln exchanged letters at the end of the Civil War. Although they were divided by far more than the Atlantic Ocean, they agreed on the cause of “free labor” and the urgent need to end slavery. In his introduction, Robin Blackburn argues that Lincoln’s response signaled the importance of the German American community and the role of the international communists in opposing European recognition of the Confederacy.

The ideals of communism, voiced through the International Working Men’s Association, attracted many thousands of supporters throughout the US, and helped spread the demand for an eight-hour day. Blackburn shows how the IWA in America—born out of the Civil War—sought to radicalize Lincoln’s unfinished revolution and to advance the rights of labor, uniting black and white, men and women, native and foreign-born. The International contributed to a profound critique of the capitalist robber barons who enriched themselves during and after the war, and it inspired an extraordinary series of strikes and class struggles in the postwar decades.

In addition to a range of key texts and letters by both Lincoln and Marx, this book includes articles from the radical New York-based journal Woodhull and Claflin’s Weekly, an extract from Thomas Fortune’s classic work on racism Black and White, Frederick Engels on the progress of US labor in the 1880s, and Lucy Parson’s speech at the founding of the Industrial Workers of the World.

Wrong again. More non-sense. Liberalism is a dead ideology in the world today. That is why Obama is such a stupid failure. His last hoorah was the Muslim Brotherhood. You see what happened to the Brotherhood, don't you? They got kicked out of power and those whom they called liberals switched over and refused to talk to Obama.

I do not know who you think you are talking to. Okay. I was wrong about Washington owning slaves. But, let me make one thing clear. The Dummycrtas have always been essentially the same. That is why we have a black Dummycrat in office now who does more harm to my community than all the other presidents combined. They are and have always been anti-black. That is why Jefferson raped his slaves and still have idiots thinking he did something nice. Well, I do not think rape is nice. And I do not think unlimited abortions is right. And I do not think unlimited stem cell research is nice. And just about everything the Dummycrats stand for in terms of most basic principles, I am against it. And I do not give a dang if you call it liberalism or whatever. It is what is and what is wrong that concerns me.

you dont get it the Democrat Party during Lincoln was conservative and the Modern Day Democrat Party are progressive & polar opposites of one and another politically & economically just like the Republicans who are ones that dominated by the Republican Party the Progressive Era here in US which is why I dont trust either Major Party.

Progressive Era

The Progressive Era was a period of social activism and political reform in the United States that flourished from the 1890s to the 1920s. One main goal of the Progressive movement was purification of government, as Progressives tried to eliminate corruption by exposing and undercutting political machines and bosses.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progressive_Era

Fourth Party System

The Fourth Party System is the term used in political science and history for the period in American political history from about 1896 to 1932 that was dominated by the Republican Party.

Don't care if I have pissed you off. Think about this; when Trayvon discovered he was being followed, he should have run or left area-most people would be scared. Trayvon waS OVER 6'and GZ was 5'9". When Trayvon saw that he was bigger He turned around and went after GZ. Then it became self defense. It was needless, what happened but Trayvon didn't need to attack. He told GZ he was going to die. Is it my understanding you think he should go ahead and let Trayvon kill him?

Zimmerman was following Trayvon...neither was a "gay predator" contrary to the latest right wing talking points..had Zimmerman stayed in his car as he was asked to do, Martin would still be alive.
You're not too smart, are you?
Listen to his girlfriends interview with Piers Morgan. Had Trayvon GONE HOME and not STARTED the fight this would not had happened!
