    What about the ones who started slavery in America?

    The ones who voted in the 13th, 14th & 15th amendments.
    What about the ones who did not?

    The ones who abolished the Jim Crow laws, the ones who voted to give blacks the vote.
    What about the ones who put the Jim Crow laws in place?

    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.

    You are pretty good at painting with a broad brush and making assumptions, but that's about it.

    Ah, so black people were just born into slavery? And then white people came along and fought to abolish it? Wow, I didn't realize that.

    The point of my comment was that I find it particularly ironic that it's mostly people who are white that are saying that black people should get over racism and move on. I wasn't saying that white people didn't fight to abolish slavery nor did I say that they didn't vote to give African Americans the right to vote.

    That's exactly my point. Not everything is black or white. Yet here you are comparing us to people who subscribe to the Jackson/Sharpton rhetoric. The fact that you are incapable of discerning differences between the two shows how out of touch you are.

    You are not even worth responding to anymore.

    I understood it perfectly fine. Same nonsense, different post

    Who said anything about white people being terrible? Well outside of you anyway.

    You really need to learn how to read man.

    No one has said any such thing outside of you trying desperately to make it appear that way.

    It's much easier to stereotype and attack strawmen than to actually debate.

    I would not want to kill them, I would want to educate them.

    What in my message is there to attack then?

    Mostly white people? Prove it. Substantiate your claim.

    Black people should get over it. How many ethnic groups in America have had to endure racism, bigotry and discrimination? We've all been through it, have perserviered, and moved on.

    No, BlackDog is of the Sharpton/Jackson school of thought.

    Are you really that naive? Or is that your response just sounded good to you?
