    OK, I'll play along. Fine, let blacks talk about slavery. Fine, let blacks pursue the individuals who personally enslaved them. Fine, let them leave the US and go somewhere else and establish a country in "someone else's back yard."

    No skin off my nose if they want to do these things. Perhaps, as you implicitly concede, these activities would lead them to have the same level of success as Ashkenazi Jews.
    Look, for someone who spews as much blatantly racist crap as you do, I think I would stay away from accusing others of inanity. You want to forget about slavery. You want to discount the effects of it and nearly a century of legalized discrimination that followed. We get that. But don't be proud of it. At least wear a hood or something. Oh, I guess the internet is a sort of hood, isn't it?

    What about the blacks who have picked themselves up and moved on just fine?
    Is it really that complicated? Some people are more motivated than others. Some have better support. Some had a better upbringing. Some people climb mountains on one leg while others can't with two legs? That doesn't mean that having one leg isn't a handicap.

    The answer is big....

    As for the underlines.... Does this effect only blacks???!?!?! I think not!!
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    No, the part that affects blacks more than whites is racism. It's an analogy thing.

    Thats BULL**** and you ignorance is really showing...

    You can only go so far when you attempt to correct past acts that are now considered wrong. How far back do you go? Who do you make responsible? If the original "perpetrators" are dead, is it just to impose a burden on their descendants for something they never did?

    Reparations to blacks in the US for slavery??? Ok... do you impose a tax on the nation? On non-blacks? Just whites? Just whites who are descended from whites living in the US at during the slave era? Do you do a genealogical search and determine who descended from documented slave owners and tax them? What if they intermarried with blacks, hispanics, asian, etc. in the last 150 years? Do they only pay a partial tax based on their diluted, slave owning bloodline?

    What do you do if they immigrated to the Americas as an indentured servant? Pretty damn close to slavery! What about all of those people enslaved by the Romans? As you can see, trying to "correct" the past based on modern concepts is neither practical or just. You can't turn back the clock.

    You are living in the past and trying to shaft the present. Instead of making something of YOUR life, YOU want to whine about what happened to their ancestors and beg for a handout

    Re-fit, re-tool. Don't sit on your ass and whine about it

    That's bull****. Racism didn't effect me. I didn't let anyone have that kind of power over me.

    Strange. From your own post I fail to see where the racism comes in.

    If some blacks are more motivated than others, and that leads them to success.
    If some whites are more motivated than others, and that leads them to success.
    Then I fail to see where the racism plays into effect...
    If the media keeps telling blacks that racism is still keeping them down, and certain blacks take that to heart and don't try, they will never see that it effects them less than they think, if at all in most cases.

    Oh blow it out of your ****ing ass, racism only affects someone if you let it. Im hispanic and have had my share of spic, taco nigger, wetback, illegal, etc so did my father when he was in the military and my grandfather and so on. It's called taking it on the chin and being the bigger ****ing man. I'm so ****ing tired of the race baiting bull**** from Sharpton, Jackson on the left and Buchanan and his pond scum supports on the right. All these losers focus on is race because thats all these Cold War throwbacks having left they're pathetic losers who do nothing but to turn people on each other. **** them and **** those who support their bull****.
