    yeah, I guess it sucks for them...unless they leave and go somewhere else where they are in the majority. poor, poor negroes, dey gots it so bad in da USA.

    When we rid ourselves of prejudice, or racial feeling, and look facts in the face, we must acknowledge that, notwithstanding the cruelty and moral wrong of slavery, the ten million Negroes inhabiting this country, who themselves or whose ancestors went through the school of American slavery, are in a stronger and more hopeful condition, materially, intellectually, morally and religiously than is true of an equal number of black people in any other portion of the globe.

    How have you yourself overcome the hundreds of years when your own racial group was enslaved here and then denied their basic legal rights as Americans? Maybe you can tell us how your people overcame those tremendous obstacles so you could become a productive citizen of Alabama today?

    First off, Russian isn't a race, it's a nationality. Secondly, it's a false statement, not all Russian women are beautiful, nor are they all ugly. Third, just because it's a part of someone's culture doesn't make it defensible. So what? Racism is racism, positive or negative.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Maybe in a few hundred years slavery will stop being used as a cop-out.

    Then again...

    Are you claiming that racism doesn't exist in the United States?

    Why don't directly address my responses to your comments Wake, instead of making vague statements that have nothing to do with anything that has been posted in this thread?

    they didn't, my people got shipped off to freakin reservations where most of them died along the way. so don't piss yourself and cry to me about how bad the poor poor negroes got treated. at least they were allowed to live.

    that said, what happened to my ancestors 200 years ago has little direct bearing on my opportunities today.

    live in the past and blame all your failures on something that happened before you were born OR take personal responsibility for your own life and make something of yourself.
