    Re: Do You Understand Repression & After Effects of Slavery

    The original poster I honestly find slimy and disgusting; just my personal opinion. What with calling everyone racists and expecting not to be called out on it. As a black man, such people disgust me; you think black people can't have sense enough to be conservative and think for themselves? But I suppose that since I was raised well by a white family to have morals and responsibility, that must make me an Uncle Tom? The point? Don't you dare call people racists and seek to inject race into every post and expect to not be met with indignant responses. If you don't wish to be a focus on your topic, then don't make yourself one.

    Reparations is bogus. Black folk have had many, many years to work hard and succeed. I go to the ghetto and what do I see? Trash strewn everywhere, people dressing all "gangsta" while walking with their shorts past their knees, drugs and guns held illegally, laziness and disinterest in hard work, great suspicion and hate for the white man, a severe lack of education, and a lack of respect for themselves and their women both in acts and music. Hate what I say? Too bad. By those who would demonize any white man for saying such, I suppose you can't call me a racist, hmm? How about this: work hard, quit blaming others, take responsibility, and maybe you'll succeed just like other races. Are you telling me you can't?

    No, I understand that there's still a lot of claimed repression, especially from blacks who want to keep claiming repression as a part of the "so... give me something!" mentality. If people are poor or "mistreated", often a lot of it has to do with their own views and behaviors. It's certainly not part of any "slavery after-effects". Slavery was a long time ago. Get over it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Kali should have been warned/infracted as well, since he/she is blindly calling people racists. People with that sort of blind mentality annoy me the most, where anything you think or say is "racist."

    Ya know CC, I don't think in this case they are completely unrelated. In many of her posts, I see Kali as some sort of white race apologist. This is not really up for debate. I also think a source of fuel in her case is her affinity toward another race, and how she has to "justify" the treatment of her "peeps" as maintaining some level of self-perceived innate blackness so she can satiate her specific desires, which we will not go into here.

    My bottom line is that, especially in this thread, debating a poster and debating a topic are really not separate issues. In fact, they are incredibly intertwined here.

    This is true. The way Kali calls others racists is what prompted me to call him/her a moron. I'll accept my infraction, but I feel Kali should at least be warned. I'm no moderator, I just dislike it when "a" calls "b" racists, "b" indignantly shoots back, and then "b" gets infracted.

    EDIT: On a side note, I like the quote in your sig.

    I would be very, very shocked indeed if the OP received an infraction. Evidently referring to someone as racist with no evidence is accepted in some circumstances.

    Re: Do You Understand Repression & After Effects of Slavery

    Now that we've completley gone off topic and are now discussing infractions.

    Let me throw this one out.
    I think Native Americans are still oppressed. Poor them and if anyone deserves reparations and special treatment, It would include them and the Aboriginals in Australia.
    Even thanksgiving, isn't that basically celebrating the massacre of NA which is kinda sick tbh.

    Interesting. Using the failed logic that blacks should have reparations and are justified in their own internal machinations, I suppose NA should as well? Perhaps Mexicans as well since we have some states from their territories? Just give back those states, perhaps?

    I am a Southerner and I deserve reparations as well. I mean, look at the stigma placed on me now thanks to that whole Civil War episode. Now as a white southerner I have the albatross of slavery hung around my neck even though NO ONE in my family ever owned a slave. There's the whole damaged and destroyed land/infrastructure/economy issue as well. So, where's my reparations?
