    It was racist, this is true; however, you must remeber that Rev. Lowery is a relic of another time.

    His rhetoric is as tired and out of place as that of Louis Ferrikhan.

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

    Really?
    People are still crying about this?
    I'm not even American.
    But you know, every race has had **** happen to them. They've all been wronged. They're all still being wronged.
    Why is one group allowed to be upset about it more than the others?
    Seriously, the history of all land is nothing but brutality. Nothing but horror stories. Most of it is bloodshed. Rape and flat out murder of not only races, but mental status, gender, religion, nationality..you name it.
    Instead of crying, perhaps we should all acknowledge the pain felt by ALL. No one is a victim more than the next man. And no one is more hard done by than the next man. If you want to start throwing out history, you better throw out ALL history. ALL facts. Not just the ones you keep in your mind to benefit you.
    Blacks were slaves, Chinese were slaves, Irishmen were slaves, in fact women are still slaves in a lot of countries. What about them? I mean there is **** going today about religion, people dying for it, and you want your past to be more important? It didn't effect you directly, and you're pissed and want to take it out on people who are innocent. How does that make you any better than the people who suppressed your ancestors? Tell me that.
    Then we'll talk.

    Most white people are aware of what was done. What colour was the man who set you free by the way? Was he not white? And need it be reminded, that blacks were SOLD by blacks and BOUGHT by whites, so don't just hate us, if you're going to hate, hate all.

    If it was me, I'd never. The fact that they can smile in our faces and be nice to us, take care of our children, tolerate us in any way, shape, or form makes them bigger people than I'll ever be.

    I remember when I first found out "everything".
    I'd always known about racism on some level; for as long as I'd been alive, I'd been hearing stories about slavery, Jim Crow, the civil rights movement, Selma, etc. But.
    I first really put it all together, asked the right questions, got the real, unvarnished answers, understood everything... when I was eleven or twelve. And oh my god, I was so angry.
    I would think about it at weird random times, sitting in school, riding in the car, and I would just start shaking and gritting my teeth. I wanted to kill someone, to destroy things.
    I was so ashamed to be white.
    I felt like nothing I ever did could vindicate me.
    Hmm. And you're not ashamed to be human? Have you looked into things that we--humans--have done throughout history? Does it make you want to kill someone or destroy things?

    In 1965 this country was 89% European.


    Thanks to for most part the 1965 Immigration and naturalization act our country is nothing more than a variety of communities. Asian communities, Hispanic communities, Muslim communities, black communities, and white communities comprise the new chamber-pot America.


    Sing Ted Kennedy's praises & admire his work!

    He's white & has really done what's right!

    I'm miserable about what humans do; that's why I don't eat meat, and expend a lot of time and energy doing things for animals and for the environment.
    But no, it doesn't cause me to experience the same kind of rage as thinking about what whites have done to blacks and other minorities.
    Except every once in awhile.... for instance, thinking about how people have domesticated animals and have this elaborate apparatus for breeding and slaughtering them in factory farms; how these animals exist for no other purpose than to be slaughtered, how they're bred specifically for that. Okay, when i think about that, and then how Christians will defend it by saying, "Well, it's in the Bible. God put people over all the other animals, to use as they saw fit."
    Wow. That sort of makes me sick with anger. God- if there is one- never envisioned anything like this systematic, institutionalized mass slaughter.
    When I think about how half the world is starving or malnourished, and how this could be resolved if we planted soy instead of grain for cattle in factory farms, while the western world has eaten itself sick and is obese and dying of too much food, too much red meat.

    Well, yeah, then... sometimes it makes me want to kill someone or destroy something.
    But I try not to think too much about it.

    Well thank you for your honesty. I could have fun picking that to pieces. But I won't. I'll just continue to eat, period. Because starving myself is not going to end world hunger. Infact, we tried to help in that area, but then there were crazy wack jobs telling these countries we were poisoning them.

    As for the animal cruelty...I agree with you there. Some things we do are shameful. But I love animals. I am open about my tree hugger-ness. I just don't think it's smart to eliminate meat from your diet entirely. So I don't.

    But as a person to be sickened by your colour rather than live differently and treat people the way you wished they had been treated in the past, you're not helping to change anything. Hating yourself for something someone else does is not productive.
    But perhaps it is, because it does suggest you have issues that need to be dealt with.

    And those women are used primarily as sex slaves. That's some pretty ****ty slavery.
    Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?

    His grandmother is dead. So she's not suffering from being abandoned anymore.
