Why do blacks always forget to mention all the white slaves over hundreds of years?
Do they think they were the only ones? Or would it make it harder to for them to hate whites?
ooo... touchy. I think it's time that we all move on, though. Poeple that bring up things that happened a hundred and fifty years ago (literally or figuratively) are just bringing the conversation back to a place that they're comfortable. Chances are, when some one starts up, they're frustrated to begin with.
Not that racism doesn't stil exist; it does, and they might be frustrated by that. It's one thing to be born and raised in a culture long forgotten. It's another to be noticably ethnic. Nobody cares if you're Irish or Polish, but "black" people come from any country in Africa, and many of them don't know which one. Maybe it's the loss of the heritage that subconciously eggs them on.
I was just asking this inresponse to another question, or rather statement made that ALL "WHITE CHURCHS" are racist. It actually floored me to see that. I thought that was as rasist as you can get.

I changed from question to forum to allow commenters to have more space to express their opinions. I initiated the question, and now forum, to discuss reactions to Michelle Obama's statement at the DNC. Her words: “I wake up every morning in a house that was built by...

A black Baltimore man recently died while in police custody, and it is widely suspected that his death resulted from police misconduct and brutality. Well, I say, regardless of all that, thousands of blacks should NOT be out in the streets rioting. In my opinion, their rioting is nothing but a case...
