    Nigaz name sparks racism debate

    Link:-http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/8130334.stm

    The word originally used to describe slaves from what is now a Country & nation called Nigeria is now deemed deeply offensive by those that categorize themselves as being Black African.
    IMO Black Africans can and do take offense at any name that a white person uses to differentiate them from White/Yellow/Other colored people.

    Life would be so much simpler if those who are born in or take Citizenship in any country, simply identify themselves as being citizens of that country.

    Instead what we have are people calling themselves, Irish, Chinese, Japanese, Americans instead of Americans.

    Having these variations of ones ancestry simply encourages the differences between people.
    How can any unity be achieved so long as people in a nation think themselves different than other citizens of the same nation?

    I believe that the folks who scream for racial equality the most, are the ones that actually want it, the least.

    Sotomayor said that she would make a better SJ, because she's Latino.

    The PC/Leftist crowd couldn't invoke the, "you're a racist", argument if we were all equal and color didn't matter.

    If we were all allowed to be equal, the welare rolls wouldn't be as lop-sided as they are and the Libbos couldn't pander to the Welfare Class vote.

    There would be no such thing as, "majority minority", congressional districts, as provided by section 5 of the Voting Rights Act--racial gerrymandering, basically--which guarantee that minority candidates will be elected. Candidates who are, 99% of the time, minorities.

    No, the last thing the so called civil rights movement wants is actual equality. If that were the case, Joseph Cao would be allowed to be a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, because his district is a majority minority district.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The Civil Rights Industry would lose millions if we were all equal. The Civil Rights Industry has done more the hurt the black community than slavery and Jim Crow ever could.

    But see, the problem is that we will never be equal. Black people have a far different origin in this country than we do. I'm not saying that cries of racism aren't often unwarranted, but it is a fact of life that we are not equal. And to bury your head in the ground and pretend that we are all equal is to be ignorant. Pretending you are color blind isn't the solution.

    Thank you for illustrating my point.

    One of my favorite quotes:

    I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

    What are you talking about if you haven't notice but the guy who is the Leader of the Free World happens to be a Black Man, there is a Black Man that is part of the Supreme Court. Over the past three administration we have had many Black Men and Women hold high office position and you still say their is a race problem get over it and move on.

    Hey folks you want to know a little secret till we all start acting like AMERICANS and Not African-American/Irish-American/Chinese-Americans then the so0called race problem will keeping going. We are Americans plain and simple.
