    I don't think that the majority of African Americans wallow in it. I think that the small outspoken minority of people who subscribe to the Jackson/Sharpton rhetoric do it. Just as I said earlier, the majority have to be just as outspoken as those who do wallow.

    BlackDog & Hatuey are the epitome of why people could give a rats ass about the plight of the black community.

    It's 2009, blacks can either join the rest of us in the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness, or they can wallow in the mire of their own self pity.


    Man that is just to rich!

    I am the reason people don't care? You obviously read nothing and understood even less of what I was saying.

    You are not even worth responding to anymore.

    I agree with that, but no one is talking about anything even close.

    You are so far off the mark it is not even funny.

    I did not say anything even close to what you are saying.

    I do have one thing...

    So we should not dwell on the holocost, or WWII or anything in the past because the new generations "have not experienced first hand?"

    You have got to be ****ing kidding me.
    Do you see or hear the holocaust victims braying and whining? Just try to get a veteran of any war to dwell on it, or complain about it.
    Any of them asking for anything at all? Any of their children or grandchildren asking for anything?
    Let it go to the history books, teach it in schools, don't forget any of it, but don't wear your "victimhood" on your sleeves, don't make it part of your daily life.

    In short, grow up and be responsible for your own life...

    You do realize the media for the most part ignores them. It does not sell as well as an ignorant "nigga" shaking his ass on the TV.

I personally find it funny and ironic that white people, for the most part, are the ones telling everyone to get over it.
    Yep, those terrible white people. The ones who fought to abolish slavery. The ones who voted in the 13th, 14th & 15th amendments. The ones who abolished the Jim Crow laws, the ones who voted to give blacks the vote.

    Yep, the last 40 years we've seen every imaginable opportunity presented to minorities in this country. Some grasped the opportunities and ran with it, others, well, we're seeing them make excuses here today in this very thread.

    Cause and effect, cause and effect....

    Please point out where I said anything even remotely close to the tripe you are somehow applying to me.

    Yeah I do. Unfortunately extremes and sensationalism will always sell more and get more attention.

    Yes, actually. They travel around the country and talk at high schools. It all depends on what you consider "whining.

    Just because I respond to your post doesn't mean I am attacking you personallyk, or anyone personally. I am attacking the message, not the messengers. I know plenty of people who play the victim card, and most of them are white. What I said is generic in nature, applies to all....
