    How is slavery still with us?
    It is still with us... Like he said, if it didn't happen this country would be mostly white, except for African immigrants and their decedents. African immigrants and African Americans are very different, two separate cultures.

    The legacy of our Native American history is also reflected in American society and culture...

    Would you also say that nobody alive today has been affected by the Revolutionary War and the Enlightenment?

    Yes... I hear people talking about the revolution, the tea party, and we need another revolution.

    I have always felt that people use the word excuse like it's a derogatory... even when I was a little. I remember going to class late and the teacher would ask, "What's your excuse?" And I'd think wtf, I don't really have an excuse. I have an explanation.

    Yeah. I'm always annoyed when people treat explanations as excuses. It pretty much means that they just don't want to hear what they don't want to deal with.

    I don't want to keep going over the same ground.

    It is used as an explanation for somebody that doesn't want to get out there and do what they need to to get ahead. How does slavery explain that behaviour.

    I happen to be Jewish. Should I use the holocaust as an explanation for anything negative in my life? Maybe we should go back further and I should blame the Egyptians.

    If I fail at a business or anything I don't say it is because the germans killed millions.

    I think what you are saying is that as a group the blacks are just weak. Nothing happened to them that had not happened to the jews many times.

    There was aposter on another board that told me that he was denied a business deal because he was black. He couldn't tell me exactly what happened to make him think that.

    Maybe they just thought he was an ass.

    If the Holocaust happened in America and America had a strong national tradition of anti-Semitism you might have a point.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
