    To me a hopeful sign for the future was in the 2010 election. The republicans elected several minorities. When more blacks start voting for Republicans, the heavy thumb of the Democratic party will be removed.
    The correct definition is to hold back by force. There is no force here. I do think that the bill cosby point of view on the situation is correct though, so I think there is some holding back.

    I can also say that Ive not exactly been to innocent in this matter. Buuuuuuuut.... Ive had a large amount of reverse-racist **** happen to ME. ANyhow my Italian upbringing didnt exactly favor blacks.

    Does the OP think slavery still exists? Ooh, how pseudo and twisted.

    This racist post is a prime example of the after effects.

    Blacks need to be treated as equals, not led to believe they can't succeed on their own. The longer they think they are entitled to things because of the color of their skin, the longer they will be repressed.
    How can it not have anything to to do with slavery considering that the slavery has never REALLY ended?

    If we look back in history and are keeping it real? We know that just because you were not a slave does not mean you are not on the receiving end of after effects that your ancestors went through

    Most repression today is dished out by activists in silk suits who tell us we can't succeed and why. Sharpton and Farrakhan are great examples of that.
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

    Let us continue dwelling in the past. Let us make excuses of how the white man is holding us down, though through our own ignorance and prejudice we stray away from education and success. If you want success, work yourself hard; both mental and physical. Stop making excuses and using blind vengeance and hate to fuel your bias against white people.

    Go apply for any public sector job and state that you're an African-American female. You're hired before they schedule the interview.

    Any repression that may have existed is gone, and is in a current state of reparation.
    African-American females make way less than White Men

    I suppose the lives of the white people who fought against slavery don't mean spit to you.
