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?
Yes, we all know that all white people didnt' do it. But part of choosing to live in these United States of America is recognizing that you inherit its history. I was born in Trinidad & Tobago, and my entire family is from Guyana, South America. I am Indian, Portuguese, tScottish, & Black, but you better believe that when I walk down the street I am just another African-American to almost anyone who sees me. Look at my tar, don't I look 100% Black?
Hmmmm, you look and sound familiar...sending you a PM.
Didn't get one...
i love this argument!
for the record, every member of the Naacp is probably black, or will i stand corrected?
but, not every black is a member of the naacp. however, the naacp represents every black whether they want it to or not. or maybe the blacks that don't want to be referred to as "colored" don't join. maybe its membership through birth rite. in any event, the naacp and affirmative action and quotas are all intertwined. and the conferderate flag cant even be compared to the nazi regime what so ever.
i have a new topic since that one is going back and forth. this is hypothetical, but not racist and i don't mean any disrespect, but let's make the best out of a bad situation.
what if slavery would have never occured and blacks would have never been "imported" for lack of better terms...they would all be suffering in africa. starving, aids ridden, etc. while i in no way condone slavery, the blacks today aren't slaves and should be more respectful to their ancestors who suffered so they could have a truly better life. i doubt those former slavews, God bless their souls, would want to see blacks act the way they do now.
just a thought, bring it on....
