OWN YOUR HISTORY WHITE FOLKS
THIS IS NOT WHITE HISTORY. THIS IS LITERALLY EVERYONE’S HISTORY. THIS HAPPENED IN THE PAST OF THE WORLD THAT LITERALLY EVERYONE LIVES IN.
This happened because of WHITE PEOPLE WHO ARE CLEARLY STANDING IN THE BACKGROUND SMILING AND POSING!! Try again honey!
Slavery wasn’t something white people just invented out of thin air. I get the idea here sometimes that some blacks think slavery is something that only white people were nasty enough to do. The fact that Africans were involved in slavery needs to be kept in mind (even native tribes that werent black) it shows that all races are capable of such things. White people just had the means at the time to take it to a much further level than Africans did. Which doesn’t excuse whites; it just shows that the potential for wickedness is a part of the human condition, and doesn’t discriminate between the races.

You know what, you’re right. They’re brain dead.
People Are Still Out Here Supporting Obama…Think About That For A Good Minute.
I’m all for “Black Unity,” “Empowerment” and whatever…
But we gotta stop acting like it’s okay for us to say and do certain things, whereas a white person cannot do the same without being labeled a racist. It’s ignorant and incredibly hypocritical.
And unfortunately, I was raised around this mindset all of my life, so I’m conflicted. I understand the hypocrisy, but still defend it to a certain extent. As a black person, I can’t help but to feel that way. And so, again, I am conflicted.
For example, I see absolutely nothing wrong with a black person throwing up a “black power fist” and claiming the black race to be one of strength and superiority. Isn’t it natural for one to believe that their race of people are better than others? Maybe it’s just me. Like in sports. We’re always going to claim that our team is the best, even if they’re terrible (The Redskins for example…sorry, I had to say it). But if I ever heard a white person claim that whites are superior, or dared to throw up a fist in the name of White superiority, I would be incredibly offended and angered. Why is that? Well, I am biased. And considering the history we have had between us, Whites and Blacks, that shouldn’t be surprising. Not to say it’s any less of a hypocritical reaction, but it is understandable.
I’m on both sides here, and I probably always will be. But there is a hell of a lot of misunderstandings, hypocrisy, and ignorance on both sides, and we need to stop acting like victims all the time. Yes, racism still exists. But in every crime? Every crime that occurs between people of different races IS NOT ALWAYS a hate crime or some race related injustice. Get over yourselves.
Ugh, if I had the energy I’d continue on with this rant but I just don’t. All I’m saying is…being a victim for decades on end is ridiculous, and it’s even more ridiculous when the people choosing to be victims can’t even acknowledge what they’re doing.
