    No - NOT AT ALL. That's what I'm saying. If you are black, and somebody cooks collard greens for you, say, "Thank you!" Don't say "Dang, did you just do this because I am black?" Stop turning everything into race, because it's not all about race. We will never get over racism until both sides stop doing the stupid **** they do.

    Well, I hate to tell you, but the minute a yankee makes fun of my accent I tell them they sound funny too, but I have enough manners not to bring it up.

    We open armed?

    We enslaved them - and made it an American Past-time to devise a multitude of ways in which to treat them different, inferior, and low class.

    But of course - come along a few rights movements and naturally they should be able to crawl out of the pit we dug for them all for the sake of a single thread for a rope.

    How - on earth - does that make any sense? It's ignorance to say the least . . . it's called 'now wanting to admit we ****ed it all up from the beginning' - by pushing the blame of the crime OFF ON THE VICTIM.

    I'd be a lot more impressed with all this wailing and gnashing of teeth if it wasn't all just advertising for his movie coming out. As soon as the movie bombs, there won't be another word about it.

    The movie will serve to keep the blacks agitated and hating whites though, that will be very good for the liberals.

    While watching this masterpiece, keep in mind that the United States actually had comparatively little to do with the slave trade. There were 12 million slaves brought to the New World, and America only received 600,000, only 5%. That is just about the same number of white men that died in the Civil War to free the slaves in the United States. The primary slave traders were the Hispanics (Spain) the portuguese and the French. It keeps the blacks much more agitated to pretend that evil, white America was the hub though.

    So slavery finished around the 1865..how much longer will white people have to suffer their insufficiences...

    They are greens. You cook them up with a little salt pork or bacon fat. The Africans cooked for us for generations. The European diet was quite bland. Africans taught us how to eat.

    It is like mustard or kale or I suppose loose-leaf cabbage, usually boiled in with some sort of pork fat.
