    Come on, he was trying to make a clever rhyme and couldn't come up with anything else that rhymed with "white" and sounded good. Don't read too much into it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    when white can fly a kite

    when white will turn off the light

    when white will not bite

    when white cannot fight

    when white can remain tight

    when white takes flight

    *This is kinda fun, and I think it sounds pretty good.
    Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?

    It was a carefully worded speech in front of millions of people.

    I think we are all acting a bit (just a bit ) superficial towards this matter.

    I'm sure you're not suggesting that there aren't any blacks older then 43 around.
    Why does the time frame only matter when it comes to "African American" suffering?

    That's the point I was trying to make initially, I can see how at the time I posted I wasnt able to clearly present it.

    Everyone else is expected to get over tough issues yet we are expected to act apologetic to black americans why?

    I know for a fact that you and I have not experienced any of the bad times in American history.

    I also would not hold a grudge against anyone because of what happened before I was even born. I expect that others should do the same, unless we need to dwell on irrelevance.

    Re: Have white people embraced what is "right"?

    I am sick and tired of ignorant, racist people claiming that simply because I am white, my ancestors were party to the subjugation of blacks. My ancestors weren't even in this country.

    They were in the same state as the black slave in America. Don't take my word for it, though. Let Frederick Douglas say it:

    I had heard much of the misery and wretchedness of the Irish people, previous to leaving the United States, and was prepared to witness much on my arrival in Ireland. But I must confess, my experience has convinced me that the half has not been told. I supposed that much that I heard from the American press on this subject was mere exaggeration, resorted to for the base purpose of impeaching the characters of British philanthropists, and throwing a mantle over the dark and infernal character of American slavery and slaveholders. My opinion has undergone no change in regard to the latter part of my supposition, for I believe a large class of writers in America, as well as in this land, are influenced by no higher motive than that of covering up our national sins, to please popular taste, and satisfy popular prejudice; and thus many have harped upon the wrongs of Irishmen, while in truth they care no more about Irishmen, or the wrongs of Irishmen, than they care about the whipped, gagged, and thumb-screwed slave. They would as willingly sell on the auction-block an Irishman, if it were popular to do so, as an African. For heart, such men have adamant—for consciences, they have public opinion. They are a stench in the nostrils of upright men, and a curse to the country in which they live. The limits of a single letter are insufficient to allow any thing like a faithful description of those painful exhibitions of human misery, which meet the eye of a stranger almost at every step. I spent nearly six weeks in Dublin, and the scenes I there witnessed were such as to make me "blush, and hang my head to think myself a man." I speak truly when I say, I dreaded to go out of the house.
    And:

    In front of the door-way, and within a step of it, is a hole three or four feet deep, and ten or twelve feet in circumference; into this hole all the filth and dirt of the hut are put, for careful preservation. This is frequently covered with a green scum, which at times stands in bubbles, as decomposition goes on. Here you have an Irish hut or cabin, such as millions of the people of Ireland live in. And some live in worse than these. Men and women, married and single, old and young, lie down together, in much the same degradation as the American slaves. I see much here to remind me of my former condition, and I confess I should be ashamed to lift up my voice against American slavery, but that I know the cause of humanity is one the world over. He who really and truly feels for the American slave, cannot steel his heart to the woes of others; and he who thinks himself an abolitionist, yet cannot enter into the wrongs of others, has yet to find a true foundation for his anti-slavery faith.


    So being serious, when I hear things about "whites" in general being responsible for the plight of the blacks I get pissed.

    Anyone who thinks that my being white means I have some sort of ancestral obligation to make up for this countries subjugation of blacks can either go read some Frederick Douglas or go **** themselves.

    Thanks Tucker.

    One step beyond though, even if your ancestry was "Responsible" for any of the **** that went on here. You are not accountable. **** is anyone supposed to move on if innocent people are blamed, ridiculed, guilt tripped, etc.

    So, is it fair to treat it as a matter of record that Obama is a bigot, being that if McCain had spent 20 years mentoring under a white supramacist, there would be no talk of guilt-by-association, just of "KKK McCain?"

    Fair's fair, after all.
    Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner (paraphrasing James Bovard).
