    Yes they were and I would go as far to say the Chinese were treated close to slaves.

    In the end they were not taken by force and sold in America as a slave.

    But all this has little to do with my initial statement.

    Just to add there is a tendency for riots. Now the thing is, why do these people who riots cause criminal activities such as vandalism, destroying and robbing stores/ properties, etc etc because of a unlawful cop killing or beating a black man?

    I love how lefties like Hatuey are ready to judge, jury and executioner of the police. What happened to such foreward thinking premises like I dunno... innocent until proven guilty? Or, not rushing to judgement?

    I wonder Hatuey, if this had been some black thugs, killing a white man, would you even bother to mention it? Black cops killing an older white man?


    Somehow, I think not. You just cannot resist the sirens call of a case of a black man being shot by the cops can you?

    I don't fault blacks for viewing the world through a somewhat racially oriented-lens... any more than I fault myself for viewing the world through a somewhat gay oriented lens. Issues that are dear to our hearts have a way of jumping to the surface more quickly and more often than others.

    It's my experience that Christians on message boards are often quick to measure every word with a Christian ruler. And those who smoke pot are often quick to measure every word through, well, a hazy fog of something or other.

    It's the content of the posting that I'm more interested in. Not the reason or reasons behind the posting. We all have subjects dear to our own hearts.

    You're not clever, so keep your "compared to slavery argument" to yourself.
    Ah, so you are cool with saying that black people wallow in self-pity and you won't divulge information to us because you are afraid of the same thing? That's telling. Keep it up, Champ, you're making my day.

    So predictable. This is precisely the Plight of the Black Man pity party I have referred to over and over again.

    You've never been a slave, so stop pretending to be a victim.

    You keep telling yourself that. I'm sure you can guilt trip a sympathizer or an apologist to agree with you.

    Then you can all feel warm & fuzzy together.

    For one thing, they AND you would have had a totally different outlook on how things work in the world given the time.

    #2 - they would not have listened to you as a teenager, so you'd have "educated" no one. You would not have gotten past, "Can I talk to you for a minute, sir?"

    #3 - If they weren't listening to Abraham Lincoln, what makes you think they'd be open to you "educating" them.

    #4 - You're talking in feel good sound bytes.

    #5 - There's a world of difference between trying to educate and actually educating. To assume you could achieve the latter is arrogant. It's noble. But it's not reality.

    They sure did in America, which happens to be the country we are talking about right now.

    True, they weren't. But then, Africans weren't taken by white men to start with either. They were taken by other Africans and then sold to white men. Just so we're clear.

    And you're right, it has very little to do with anything anymore.

    Oh oh oh...so now we're going to move the goal posts from your original statement to something more defined.

    You and an open window...the very definitions of transparency.
