It's very very simple.

A gay may often slander you [heterosexual] of closeted homosexual to insinuating that his own moral deviance is not as rare as our common sense says. He intend to convey: "You are as gay as him but lacking the courage to admit it." In the same way, whites can accuse blacks of racism to justify their own mischievious racist beliefs featuring them as normal and popular among people in general, as you.

Actually, it's the DNA evidence, but you are not included. You are a devil, and therefore a supernatural being. Your realm is hell, and according to the book Revelations, you will be cast back into hell for a thousand years.

For the most part, black racism is a reaction to white racism.

Every group has racists. Just ignore them and let their hate burn itself out.

I don't question racism being a learned behavior.... and they learned it from their own families and may have had a point 200 years ago.... But come-on why do they continue the tradition? Haven't had a reason or cause in over 100 years.

Like the leaders of the enslaved world, you are totally clueless and out of touch. Any fantasy has it's end and any delusion is eventaully dispelled. Your lack of awareness marks you as the standard issue White male.

Notice the braille, is it not for the blind? The masks, is it not for those who hide something?

Well what do you define as racist because from my personal encounters I think white still are the most racist, but I never have had a white person explain there personal experiences with racism, so I'm all ears, well in this case eyes.

Agreed, but in some cases it is more understandable.

My point is not about who holds whom down. My pint is about the fact that Africans are held down. Nobody can honestly deny that Africans are held down.

How have you faced racism? Discrimination? I personally haven't dealt with it, but I've heard stories from my elders.
If you have not dealt with it, you are blind, deaf and dumb or a liar. It is impossible not to deal with it if you are on this forum. This forum is filled with anti-African, anti-Arab and anti-Muslim racism every hour of every day.

I'm so sorry that you dealt with that, ma'am. It sounds like you are a strong person. Success is its own reward.
It sounds like you are an idiot and it is very irritating.

Easy to comment on this one, blacks are perceived to be racist because they are "the" most racist group out there but are blind to the facts. Ever tried to discuss racism with a black? They won't even let you try and explain your thoughts... They are in denial from the word go. There is not a person out there under 125 years old that was ever a slave are even close to being a slave but they still want to talk that trash... Give me a break! Stick your hand back in your pocket and don't even try and get in mine....
No. It is the white racist dogs who are in denial. Plus, I find it hard to believe anyone is not aware of racism. Yet, white racists invariably deny racism. Africans take their cue from white racists and inflict racism on everybody whom they consider to be vulnerable usually Asians, Arabs other Africans or immigrants in general. Interestingly enough, Africans never abuse white immigrants such as the Bosnians. The Bosnians are the largest immigrant group in Saint Louis. But Africans never attack the Bosnians. But they do attack Latinos, Chinese, Pakistanis and Arabs. Go figure.

<quoted text>Blacks are in Detroit and that is known for a fact and is explained in the Book called Detroit Divided, besides what would you think if the Whites started a Network called WET(White Entertainment Television) the Blacks would be claiming Racism and accusing the network of being racist because it mentions White but its ok for the Blacks to have a Network called BET(Black Entertainment Television) which is nothing but racist and promotes Racism by keeping it alive besides the Blacks thinks it ok to be racist but its not for the whites and Bill Cosby is right about the Blacks here in the US quit blaming the White Man and take responsiblity.

There will be no significant discourse, no dialog between whites and blacks that will amount to anything other than the continued, systematic destruction of our people. The individuals among them are too weak/powerless, docile, complacent and apathetic to be of any use to us. Make no mistake, they will continue to throw the wrench into whatever works you black people try to manifest and they will deny or justify every act, no matter how inhumane, criminal or ungodly, because that is all they've ever done. In mass, they will continue on with their ridicule/public defamation of you in the face of the international community and they will oppress you until your numbers dwindle to nothingness because they are. Their malignant corruption and hypocrisy, wrecklessness and agenda for global domination will continue on scheadule.
The only decision for blacks to make, is weather we will fight against them or allow ourselves to go extinct, because that is certainly what their majority wishes to happen.
And yet, "fighting back" as you say is an irrational and emotional response to racism. Thus, we end up copying white racism. Monkey see monkey do because we do not think deeply and critically about it. What we need to do is commit ourselves to the total and absolute destruction of racism. But some of the most racist blacks deny that racism exist anymore. Instead, we need a scientific approach to its destruction. And the ONLY way to destroy racism is to counter balance it with Black Power. Black Power must be based in a strong power based in Africa. Thus, to destroy white racism we must make Africa powerful and strong to defend against racism.

I've met black people from around the world and asked how they felt about American Blacks. Well, ALL of them shook their heads. Blacks from other countries don't like American Blacks. Guess what, I don't either.
You all bought us a one way ticket to America's slave plantations. Why not buy us one way tickets back home to our Motherland? Last ticket y'all bought us was below third class below deck, Next time we will insist on first class above deck.

I've been to Sierra Leone and that much is true. They have no words sometimes about blacks in America. They want to disassociate themselves many not all from these creatures and I don't blame them. It's such a major cultural difference and horrible culture shock when they come here and come across some. They just have totally different goals.
Sierra Leone was found3ed by about 200 black men who could find no comfort or acceptance in white society. A couple years later, the British shipped them 60 prostitutes, presumably all white prostitutes, off the streets of London. So, no one should be surprised to learn that Sierra Leoneans are screwed up from the word "go".
