Yes, I would like to losing 10-12 lbs. I've started at the gym and will start going about 3-4 times a week. Then after about 2-3 weeks, it' be 5-6 times per week. I have also started watching what I eat and how much.

That, however, does not mean that all white people are directly culpable in present injustices. Generalized comments that suggest as much is what I find offensive. See where I'm going with this?
Sorry, I meant sweetepiphany.

Who and what specifically are you really responding to? I see my post was barely addressed. Just wondering if you intended to give a direct response...

i love this argument!
Wow! Well, I am curious to know the amount to reading you have done on the African continent on a whole. Since when was everyone suffering in Africa before trans-Atlantic slavery? There were, of course, challenges facing the hundreds of different cultures in Africa before the Europeans arrive, but many of the difficulties faced today are linked to colonialism. In fact, the modern day nations that you see did not even exist until the arrival of colonists.
But please do tell me what "bad situation" my family would have been in since you must somehow be aware of the region of Africa from which I descend and the ethnic group to which I belong. BTW, I am neither of American heritage nor of recent African descent.
Also since when are all "blacks" descendants of slaves? Further, how do you know how respectful of our ancestors "blacks" are? Do you know how important ancestors are to African/African descended religions? Are you aware of the impact this has in the many "black" cultures today, whether traditional religions are practiced or not?
Lastly, which "blacks" or African descendents today are you referring to? The ones in political office? Your fellow law students or students to be? Those residing in the U.S., Latin America or the Caribbean, Europe? Tell me, how do "WE" act?
Look forward to you response. I love this argument too!
