I've noticed anytime a person of color speaks of hundreds of years of injustice to their people they are told they are pulling the race card or are told to get over it. Yet when a Jewish person brings up the Holocaust or about how people are antisemitic they aren't perceived as pulling the race card? Why the double standard?

Eugenics program was created just for african americans. In fact hitler praised American scientist in his book and sent his scientist to america to learn eugenics which is still apart of society today. The iq test was created by a eugenicist.
Che==Have you ever bothered to check out anything you say or do you just spout this stuff for effect. It must be a sad thing thing to live in a vacuum.
Do you know why they started considering jews, Italians and Irish white? The number of African americans grew and they needed to give the "white" population a broader definition for more numbers.
Old--It would seem that your whole identity is focused on the color of your skin and what you claim as the past, which you did not have to experience. That is a very sad existence. I would be resentful too.
Cj you seem ill informed. It was much more than 12 million. New studies show it was closer to 60 million. If it's not about color or ethnicity then why are african americans still fighting for equality in education, in the judicial systems?
Che--I am always willing to learn. Provide your source. What do you use to prove your last errant statement?
I agree with you. To acknowledge that african americans have been mistreated with genocide and slavery to this day seems to make europeans upset to point the ugly truth. Once we can face that ulgy truth can the nation start to heal together.
You are correct color isn't a race and we are all apart of the human race no need to get offensive. The point I was making is that african americans are constantly mistreated. From slavery on till the present. 60 mil were killed in the middle passage
Che--I was not insulting. I was accurate.I find it offensive for a member of the human race to identity with skin color, How demeaning that is. Your point is invalid and your facts are wrong.Your own people sold you into slavery--3 to 12 million died
