    What I got from his comments are basically that he's saying that African Americans have been victimizing themselves and been lazy and now they won't be able to now that Obama is going to be the President. That's a pretty ignorant statement if you ask me.

    Perhaps he should clarify then. He didn't seem to disagree with my assessment of his comments in his reply to my post.

    No, time has negated what happened in the past. That and the fact that there hasn't been a soul who even lived through slavery since 1979 and even that is a little sketchy since the man was reputed to be 137 years old.

    I believe that we're talking about the those that play the victim, and spend more time crying about "racism" and how life's "unfair".

    But oh wait... now we're being racist right? And that right there... is half the problem. I don't care about the "black experience" because that's just excuse making BS. Work hard, be responsible, get an education... you greatly improve your chances succeed. That's America.

    Sit around talking about how you're a victim... without any proof, just saying "cause I'm black, I gotta twice as hard to prove myself" or "Why get an education, that's acting white, I ain't no oreo..." That crap's gotta stop, and now with Obama as President, I can laugh at them.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I don't buy that African Americans have been victimized for quite a long time now. Obama proves that its all in the mentality of the individual and not in the so-called oppression of the race.

    No people like me were raised under a simple concept, and I live by it: Judge a man by the merit of his character, not the color of his skin.

    I also don't wallow in the past. Slavery was 150 some odd years ago, we have a black president, it's time to move on. The sooner we stomp out "well it was unfair for years" crap the better.

    I don't, but the culture it fosters is horrible. Period.

    Nothing will negate what has happened in the past. Time certainly doesn't change a thing. The fact of the matter is that the history of African Americans in this country is quite different from white people. Nothing will ever change that. I think few people actually use it as currency to get special privileges. I think for the most part people just want it acknowledged so that people can quit pretending that racial equality exists. It will never exist.

    I know you think these problems are old, but they aren't. Civil rights issues concerning African Americans didn't happen that long ago.

    That's a very sad sentiment and I do not agree with it at all.

    nothing happened to blacks today, I am Irish, should I whine and bitch about my ancestors reading "irish need not apply" signs and demand reparations from england for the potato famine?


    it is patently rediculous.
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us
