    Yep, being horse-whipped got submission and all. Cos from what I've seen in here, it sure as hell seems like it would make a lot of people happier. Much happier.

      Slavery should never have been, but why?

      Why did they allow themselves into slavery?
      Why is Africa with all it's wonderful resources such a poor and troubled place?
      Why are many of those who escaped Africa through slavery so much better off in other continents today?

      So, I took the bait, now tell me why?

      Not all of them of course; only the brain-dead Nigerians who like to start trouble with silly forum posts.  Horse-whipping might jog some brain cells back to a functioning level.

    My Qestion would be who thinks Africans were ever given their freedom, or any of us for that matter, being able to shoot off at the mouth and vote doesn't mean you are free by any stretch of the imagination.  No, I think we are all pretty much in the same boat.  Try and step to far out of line and see if the Man's billy club feels much different than the man's whip.  I haven't been hit by the whip, but the club hurts like hell, and quickly reminds you of your place. 

    Work your ass off and give at all back at the end of the month. 

    At least as slaves there were no pretends, and they weren't so cruel as to make you write your own checks for the living quarters.

          Time share!  Of course.  He can be shipped to Australia first (since it was your idea) to meet Hugh Jackman, maybe, then he can be shipped over here to the USA to meet with Scorsese.  We would, absolutely, though, require a greater time portion, as most quality directors live in Hollywood and we invented movies. wink

    I don't iron, only cook, but will have to iron when I get to Tanzania as there are thsese flies there that lay eggs in your washing and underwear on the line.  Hatch out with the warmth of your body and the grubs burrow under your skin.  So you have to iron ALL your clothes and underwear to stop grubs living in you.  Honestly, this is the truth!

    CJ ,please hope you dont get mad, and if you do tell me what your thoughts are.

    Got to chatting to a nieghbour the other day and slavery came up in the conversation, we were mainly talking about civil war ,rebels ,yanks n that ,but one thing that had my attention were his thoughts on slavery ( bear in mind Im in the Southern part of the USA) and his views were that Africa had more African slaves than Europe or the USA and in some parts still do?

    Do you have any thoughts on that ? smile

      fierycjposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      That's ludicrous. Who's keeping them? You mean like house workers or what? But I'll tell you something, any African who goes abroad is probably gonna end up a slave there. I've been offered a million visas to travel to America or the UK. But I turn it down everytime. What I'm I gonna do there, flip burgers? Or end up washing toilets? Here, I live like a king! When I travel, I do that on my terms. And best of all, I'll be loaded too, I'll be sniffing Arab Money thru my nostrils.

        Might seem ludicris, but sometimes if we look back on our countries history ,it is not all peaches n cream, and today 2009 Africa (and Cuba) have atrocious child slavery markets operating as we speak. History we cannot change ,but that exploitation we can (or least try too)...

        But your question about slavery in general, No Africans should not remain slaves,unless of course they want to. smile

    Yea we are all slaves. Most of us work to give are paycheck to the government. Our pay is taxed, then when we wanna buy shit that is taxed too, even when we sell something that is taxed too. hmmm sooo unfair that we all work for someone else to just get rich while we remain poor the rest of our lives.

    Fierycj you are an idiot.

    If you think that working at McDonald's is 'slavery' then fair enough, we all have differing definitions. But my local McDonald's is staffed almost completely by Caucasians, by your very definition of slavery it has therefore become multi cultural?

    What you call slavery is simply capitalism. Most people of all colours, religions and races are starting at the bottom of a rat race and have to make the right decisions in their lives if they so desire to achieve better working conditions and remuneration. Such is life.

    At the moment there are millions of unemployed people in the USA, and indeed over here in the UK, many of those - people of all races - would be willing to take a job at McDonald's as an alternative to  losing their homes.

    Is the half Kenyan Barrack Obama a slave? I should think not.
    It sounds to me as though you need to open your mind slightly,  and that it is in fact you with the race issue.

    1. fierycj profile image86
      fierycjposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Ha Ha. That long one gave me a good laugh. First of all, you've got me all wrong. I'm not saying people who work at McDonald's are slaves, though they might be slaving away for minimum wage. I have relatives who practically sold their life's belongings to go the US, only to live like that. The very act itself is slavery. Not that they are. Secondly, and this is the crux of my matter. I would rather be king here, as I am, than live that way over there. Which realistically speaking, is only what awaits an African immigrant. Sorry, you took it personal. I'm sure you enjoy your job.

      1. profile image0
        ryankettposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        It was your relatives choice to go to the USA and their decision to sell their life's belongings to go to the USA is their own mistake. The people of America (all races), who are currently experiencing a recession, would in fact benefit if their was no immigration at the moment.

        You sound extremely ungrateful. There are millions of people without jobs in America as things stand. Every immigrant that enters the country and takes a job is taking another vacancy from the existing American citizens (all races).

        I am in fact from the UK, and have just graduated from university with a first class honours degree. I am currently looking for a job, a difficult process. Personally I do not think that we should be allowing any immigration whilst their are 2 million people looking for a job.

        That does not make me a racist. Any immigrant who comes into this country and is given is a job should 1). be grateful that they have a job  2). Understand that that there are other people that need that job and 3). If they don't like our culture or way of life then to go home.

        You fail to appreciate that Africans could work in a McDonalds restaurant in the UK and still have enough money to buy a house in their home countries, and pay for the flight home. If they wish to do so, there are plenty of airports in the UK.

        I had a poor job for two years between 18-20, and decided to borrow to obtain a university education. If that gives me the opportunity to get a better job, over an immigrant with no UK qualifications, then sorry but that is only right.

        If you move somewhere and cannot get a job, then take measures to improve your skills and qualifications, and then work your way up in life like everybody else. As it happens, the black community in the UKs larger cities achieve less academically than any other race. At the same time I also have African friends that have worked very hard and gone to university, all of whom earn more per month now in the UK then they would in one year in their home countries.

        In the UK you can achieve whatever you wish, and we practice equal opportunities. If immigrants choose not to take those opportunities (or indeed even do research before coming!) then it is their fault that they are working at a fast food restaurant. Exactly the same applies to immigrants from all countries and of all races.

          I appreciate that they have to burst their ass and all, but really they wouldn't have to, if they were half patient. But like you said, it is their choice, who I'm I to argue. I also hold a BA in Computer Science. I'm self-employed. I could have hung around waiting for a job like millions are doing, or even travelled out like my relatives did. I could have, but I said no. Now I run my own company, my own terms. I choose my own working hours. Drive my own car. Live in my own house. I'm king. Its all in the mindset and determination. Nothing else. Someone said, slavery is in the mind. I agree 100%. So friend, still think I'm an idiot or what? Lol.

              Tell you a story, Davi. When I was real little, my Mom once looked into my eyes and said in Igbo, "nwan, oku di gi n'ime nke ukwu" which means, "my child, you have so much fire in you" that kinda stuff with me. Fire is my element. I even called my company, FieryVision. And my Film company will be, FireFilms.
