The 2012 Election was a watershed moment for America. The Outcome proved to the entire World that today's citizens and parents simply don't measure up to the standards of any previous American generation.

It's a Brave New World out there. Denying American exceptionalism and demonizing personal achievement will mold our children into mindless servants to Big Brother. Yippee!!

The Root)-- 100 Amazing Facts About the Negro No. 21: Did black people own slaves? If so, why?

One of the most vexing questions in African-American history is whether free African Americans themselves owned slaves. The short answer to this question, as you might suspect, is yes, of course; some free black people in this country bought and sold other black people, and did so at least since 1654, continuing to do so right through the Civil War. For me, the really fascinating questions about black slave-owning are how many black "masters" were involved, how many slaves did they own and why did they own slaves?

The answers to these questions are complex, and historians have been arguing for some time over whether free blacks purchased family members as slaves in order to protect them -- motivated, on the one hand, by benevolence and philanthropy, as historian Carter G. Woodson put it, or whether, on the other hand, they purchased other black people "as an act of exploitation," primarily to exploit their free labor for profit, just as white slave owners did.

The evidence shows that, unfortunately, both things are true. The great African-American historian, John Hope Franklin, states this clearly: "The majority of Negro owners of slaves had some personal interest in their property." But, he admits, "There were instances, however, in which free Negroes had a real economic interest in the institution of slavery and held slaves in order to improve their economic status."

Ring any bells, Obama and the left are exploiting you also, and many of them are black. Look at the black unemployment numbers, look at Obama not going to ONE black neighborhood since being elected........don't dig you holes any farther unless you own a front loader.

CORRECT!
See? We Conservatives attack even Republicans when they behave irresponsible like the Liberals.
Liberals will defend a Liberal president even in he kills Americans in Lybia or give guns to Mexican mafia, or kills Americans in America's soil with drones without due process.
Conservatives on the other hand are honest while Liberals are blind hypocrites who live in a fantasy land!
I totally agree I am very conservative on the issue of Welfare and do away with it all and your right these Modern Liberals live in Fantasy Land! for sure.

She put it in context for you, explained it, and you dismiss it. It's no wonder you're still a janitor in your grade school? What a piece of work, If it weren't for the minimum wage or welfare increases for the children you sire... food for you would be found at the food bank. Also sponsored by the taxpayers...
