History of White and Black Men

In the 1700s, white men sold Africans to slavery, and many African Americans had to endure harsh conditions in the south from the damn whites. During that time, there were legends among the slaves, like Harriet Tubman. Then, in the 1860s, the Civil War broke out, threatening to destroy the United States forever. Then, in 1865, President Abraham Lincoln passed the Emancipation Proclamation, abolishing all slavery in the united states, as soon as that happened, the Civil War was over, but the battle for African Americans began as they struggled to get only 30% of what the whites have gotten.

They worked more hours than the whites, but for lesser pay. They didn't even have the right to vote. In the 1920s, everything changed, as Blacks were allowed to vote. Still, they faced hard times. In the 1950, a girl named Rosa Parks was asked to move to the back of the bus, but she refused, so the whites arrested her. This sparked a controversial debate over who sat where, and by the 1960, black people were sitting among the whites. Still, Black people were facing many challenges.

Then, in the iconic 1965 "I had a dream" Speech, Martin Luther King Jr. talked about having a vision, that one day, we will se Black and Whites work as equals and get blacks out of prison systems. Unfortunately, in 1968, he was assassinated. During the 1970s-1990s, Black people were still treated poorly. Whites became racists to blacks, often using the n word to them, which is a derogatory term to blacks.

Crime broke out in Black people. There is a stat that nearly 75% of prisoners and 95% of convicted felons are black people. In the 2000s and 2010s, Black people kept getting shot, the most infamous case happened when Treyvon Martin and George Zimmerman collided. Treyvon shot Zimmerman, but Zimmerman shot next, and that fatally shot Martin. Months of trials later, and Zimmerman is a free man. Basically, he got away with murder. In 2013-2016, white police officers fatally shot black men, and for no reason whatsoever.

That's why, in 2016, Florida passed a law stating that all policemen wear body armor in case the policeman pulls any stunts, and they're still doing it. Third video (which will not be shown due to sensitivity issues (of course, there are black writers in HubPages)) shows a fatal shooting of an unarmed black man.

The Truth About George Zimmerman and Treyvon Martin

My Theory on why some White People think That Black People are inferior to them (This includes Donald Trump) and my experiences with black people.

A theory is a statement that can't be proven by fact. It is rather an opinion. My theory on why Some people want to believe that Black People are inferior to Whites is that they are typically associated with the ghetto. I've known Black people that come from Norland, my staying Place for the time being. Black people tend to think on drugs at an early age, get arrested and go to jail.

I've had a crush on 2 black girls, and I know what it's like to be loved by a black girl. Its scintillating. I've been to a mostly all-black school. My second high school had something like 93% of the population listed as African American. I know. I've looked it up. And a lot of things have happened at that school. Lockdowns, crushes (With Cheron Parker and Shanice Wongsue including the multiple times that I've seen Shanice Cry) and me passing the FCAT, SAT and ACT.

I got a 33 out of 36 in the Science Portion of the ACT. But let's not let my accomplishments fool you into thinking only about me, let's talk about the disrespect that Blacks are getting from whites. Donald Trump, I'm talking about you. He thinks he could just run the country with his racism towards non-whites and gays and people with disabilities.

If you haven't read my article on what would happen if donald trump was president, I suggest you check it out.It's a real scintillating tale of Dictatorship and global destruction and all. Anyways, back to my theory on why Blacks are targeted for so much disrespect. Maybe its the way they think. I don't have a clear Idea on what they think. I wouldn't know how to live a black life, unless I am black. Then again, living a black life isn't so bad once you get to know a few black people, like I have. I have more than 25 friends that are black.

I've also known people from Norland who have told me what it's like being black. Also, we joke around, sometimes. There was this one time where Me, Solomon and Shanice were kidding around and Solomon would start trouble, but I wouldn't dare pick a fight with him. Me and Black people are like mac and cheese once I started fitting into Norland. There was a woman named De'shante. She was real sweet. There was another woman named Jessica Romulus. She was sweet as well. I think once I began to understand black culture, it really hits you that Blacks are just as kind and as gentle as many people believed that blacks are.

There was this kid named Marc Celestin, who was friends with Shanice Wongsue. He's doing just fine. The other thing I want to address to you into why Blacks are being mistreated by White people is the size and shape of their features. Some black's noses are big and some blacks mouths are big, but I don't see that as a deterring factor. I think that's what makes them special. I've seen black people get teased by whites because of their big butts and their breast sizes.

I see those as normal. De'shante has a very nice ass, but I don't tell her about it, because she's got a boyfriend right now and has at least 1 baby. Then there's this girl named Dameka, or just Meka for short, who was always supportive with me, even throughout my whole ordeal with Shanice Wongsue. A ton of black people helped me with my ordeal with Shanice. One of them was Roneisha.

She helped me understand that its just better to leave Shanice alone after a while. This whole crush on Shanice lasted 2 years, after which I wrote a mean message on her Facebook, and then wrote an apology letter, and that's when she blocked me. She called me on May 15, 2014, to rekindle that friendship. Her voice was hoarse

Conclusion

My conclusion is to follow your heart and know that if a black person is offering any help, then help the black person. Look into their eyes first. If you see greed and lust in their eyes, then don't give them money, but if you see happiness and friendliness, then help them. Also, don't hesitate to go to a nearly all black school if your a white hispanic and treat them as friends, not as enemies. Also, don't go obsessing over girls, because it may mess up your friendship, like it did mine and Shanice's. Stay out of the watchful eye of the child molestor, because you may be molested in the future. Also, slavery is NOT and option. Learn from history. DON'T REPEAT IT!!! Also, treat black people with respect. AND DON'T TREAT BLACK PEOPLE BAD, ESPECIALLY BY SAYING THE N WORD TO ANOTHER BLACK PERSON!!!!

      Thank you for that great comment. Back people are important too. Look at Jackie Robinson, Martin Luther King Jr, Morgan Freeman, Maya Angelou, and Denzel Washington. They've accomplished great things despite their skin color.

      This is a great article. I am one of those people who don't care about the color of our skin. Good people are good people and it's not about skin color. Thank you for writing about an important topic. keep it up.
