  • Whatever happened to my great grandfathers 40 acres and a mule?

    The government promised it to the slaves and never delivered. Instead of 40 acres and a mule they got Jim Crow Laws and KKK terrorism. I'm not looking for reparations personally, but I just wonder why this issue is so hard for so many to comprehend. Shouldn't this debt be just as important as the national debt?

I'm not looking for reparations personally, but I just wonder why this issue is so hard for so many to comprehend. Shouldn't this debt be just as important as the national debt? Should interest be applied? What are your thoughts? P.S. I welcome your ignorant and hateful answers as they will only prove my argument.

  • Why after being obsessed with race for the past 500yrs do some white people?

    expect everyone to just forget about race? Is it so they don't have to be reminded of their violent and hateful past? It's been barely 50yrs since whites enforced segregation in every aspect of society, and we're supposed to just forget about race and trust that all whites have?

  • For those who claim "black people are the most racist"?

    Although it is likely true that prejudice resides in all groups to similar degrees, racism, by definition as a word ending with the letters "ism," is more than prejudice. Racism, as with all "isms" is a system (think capitalism, socialism, communism, fascism, etc). So to suggest that racism is a problem for all groups in roughly... show more
    Although it is likely true that prejudice resides in all groups to similar degrees, racism, by definition as a word ending with the letters "ism," is more than prejudice. Racism, as with all "isms" is a system (think capitalism, socialism, communism, fascism, etc). So to suggest that racism is a problem for all groups in roughly equal degrees, is to paper over the fact that not all groups have had, or have now, anywhere near the equal ability to put their prejudices into action, via systemic policy. BLACKS, FOR EXAMPLE, CANNOT RACIALLY PROFILE WHITES, DENY HOUSING TO WHITES, OR JOBS, IN THE WAY THAT WHITES CAN DO THESE THINGS TO BLACKS, BECAUSE BLACKS ARE RARELY IN POSITIONS OF POWER SUFFICIENT TO ALLOW FOR THAT KIND OF IMPOSITION. -Written by a white man http://www.timwise.org

    I'm missing my ex-fiance like never before. I left her and for the right reasons, there was NO trust to establish a healthy marriage.

I am willing to work on it and wait for her to work on things, but it seems as though she is unwilling. She just wants me to come back without us resolving anything. I feel as though I should just give it up but I can't, I worry about her meeting someone else and I can't seem to just move on. I really can't think of any way to find closure.

    The majority of white people that I come in contact with (not including my friends) seriously believe in some Disney version of History that portrays America as a champion of human rights and freedom.

How could this be true when from the very beginning, America was involved in some of the most cruel treatment of human beings? Are blacks and other minorities crazy for questioning these claims or are some whites in denial for the sake of justifying their dominant place in American society? What is it? Why are our views so polarized?

    With the threat of a black man's foot in their behind, most white supremacists have fled underground, that is until they discovered that they can spew their hatred without the threat of confrontation. Are these e-supremacist a symbol of their weakening influence and dedication?

Didn't most of your ancestors come here the same way, except they were white so that made them automatically legal? Does that sound fair to you?
