    Re: Do You Understand Repression & After Effects of Slavery

    I absolutely understand. Being black I did not have to make excuses to be successful or anything else. Every problem in my life I created and I take responsibility for. That is the issue here, it is so much easier to blame someone or something else for your own failures.

    What the heck? Why are 2 "somethings" showing up?

    This is my first poll up here and sorry if belongs somewhere else and I did screw it up. lol.
    I understand that there's not a single black person, alive today, that was ever inslaved, so that's no excuse, for anything.

    We are all slaves. Slaves to the taxes, slaves to our jobs, slaves to the law. You can't say slavery has been eradicated. The only non-slaves are the people in power.

PLUS the physical threats of violence..... the burning of crosses.... the needless killing and torture of people that were of your skin color....
    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.
    I'll pass that idiot up and go find someone who does want to give me a job. It's not all that hard.

    Anyone who would pass up a topshelf hand, such as myself, because of my skin color, isn't someone I would want to work for, anyway. So, in the long run, they did me a favor.

    The, "repressed", in this country are so, because they put themselves there.

    Doesn't matter, racism is racism and repression is repression.
    Now go on this
    -situation- An African American goes and eats KFC as often as a white person does. But theres a sterotype that Black people like Chicken. so the white man makes a racial remark.- what do you think?
