    But to bring it up at that place and time, beneath the flag of brotherhood and racial unity, to say the least, was in very poor taste.


    There is still much work to be done on the front of all races. But the longest journey begins with the first step. Many steps were taken several decades ago and now, as a result, we are all walking side by side as equals in every respect. All of those steps led up to what happened last Tuesday.


    There is still much to do. We must all do our part. And the "blame whitey" game is going to have to stop too if we want to continue to make progress and become what we are capable of becoming. All races have to rise above the past and look towards the future.
    Yeah, that's not gonna stop any time soon. Nor should it. I'd be pissed off too if my ancestors had spent the majority of their time in this country being **** on. Luckily enough they were Norwegian farmers who came here in 1915. For some reason no one really ****s on Norwegians except Swedes. ****ing Swedes...

    This is what most people don't seem to get when they tell blacks to just 'get over it' like our history in this country is a Punk'D episode or like we screwed a really ugly girl while drunk.

    Well, I'm not saying I want to actually do anything about it. But I'm kind of a sociopath like that.

    My Irish ancestors got their butts kicked by the English and I'm over it so blacks should get over it too.

    I think this Lowery guy was a stain on an otherwise great day.
    For the rest of the day yesterday and most of the day today I had to hear from the Conservative talk radio people how racist this guy was and how they couldn't believe it.

    Sheez sometime those people come close to making my head explode.
    From the ashes.

    Let me explain :

    When the Irish, Italians, Germans, Jews, Polish etc etc were coming off boats they were given bread and hot soup. EVERY single group that came to America was greeted and told that this was their country and that opportunities were theirs even if they were discriminated against later and attacked for their heritage. None of them came to this country through the doggy door. All of them were told to keep their heads high when they were brought in by the boatload.

    Blacks, even though they had been here working(slavery) and bleeding for America(Revolutionary War, Civil War, WWI, WII, Korea AND Vietnam) since the days of the founding fathers and before, were told they did not have the same rights as the Irish, Italians, Germans, Jews etc etc up until somewhere in the last 50 years.

    But hey. I hear German kids had it really bad because they got called Nazis.
    You obviously don't know a whole lot about Irish history when it comes to America and slavery.

    Not very surprising though, it isnt exactly a popular topic. As news skeptics would say "It doesnt grab headlines"

    I feel for American blacks. But to be honest, it's hard to give a **** anymore when people who were not even around during the "hard times" talk about it like I'm some kind of evil oppressor.

    The only group I will tolerate listening to about hardships anymore are old Japanese people. Research it for a "glad I wasnt a part of that" moment.

    Which time?

    This time?

    Jim Crow laws - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Jim Crow laws were state and local laws in the United States enacted between 1876 and 1965. They mandated de jure segregation in all public facilities, with a "separate but equal" status for black Americans and members of other non-white racial groups.

    Some examples of Jim Crow laws are the segregation of public schools, public places and public transportation, and the segregation of restrooms and restaurants for whites and blacks. The U.S. military was segregated. These Jim Crow Laws were separate from the 1800-66 Black Codes, which had also restricted the civil rights and civil liberties of African Americans. State-sponsored school segregation was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of the United States in 1954 in Brown v. Board of Education. Generally, the remaining Jim Crow laws were overruled by the Civil Rights Act of 1964[1] and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
    I'm sure you're not suggesting that there aren't any blacks older then 43 around.
