Re: To all of you who have anything to say about Black people.
I'm opposed to reparations, but if it became a reality it should only target blacks above the age of 60. IMO

Re: To all of you who have anything to say about Black people.
I don't know why you think that white people need to cheer you on for your race to be successful.

When Obama was elected my husband said to me, Hopefully the whites will now think differently about blacks.

I disagreed, I think it has nothing to do with how whites think of you, but everything to do with how blacks think of themselves

Re: To all of you who have anything to say about Black people.
Half the population of Rome were slaves. Ten percent of the population of Europe were enslaved by the vikings. The American Indians took slaves at any opportunity. Muslims were(and still are) the worst slavers of all.

Ask any Chinese factory worker making .13 an hour if they are enslaved, you can imagine the answer.

Do your research, the majority of the American slave ships had Jewish owners, the same in Brazil, the Caribbean, Peru, always the same people.

Re: To all of you who have anything to say about Black people.
there are more impoverished whites in the US then blacks

it's a numbers thing..as far as percentages are concerned, i'll lend some credence to your idea BUT here is the thing


it's been a loooong time since slavery and everyone makes choices for themselves..just like you did SO it can be done and if it isnt, its a choice and whitey isnt to blame..its the nigga in the hood who holds back the nigga in the hood first and foremost


for everyone else, its business as usual and by the way, YOUR kind, through all forms of media, do an exceptional job of holding your kind back and self actualizing nigga'ness


do something about it..sending "vibes" all day long amounts to SHIT ALL...action homie
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1391386


I agree with this guy. Sound sensible to me. OP is another on of those scumbags that want a handout, if not for himself thenfor his 'people'. Let's just let people start to take responsibility for themselves. There's a lot of shit on the streets that needs cleaning up before we can do that, though, or there will be a lot more racists coming out of the woodwork. Actions speak louder than words, neigborhoods speak louder than internet hogwash. The generalizations are correct, son, and reperations paid for century-old misdoings, if you can even call them that, is not fair to anyone. Not even your homies. It perpetuates their terrible attitude towards life and towards others. Life was master versus slave. Everyone should get reperations if the black folks should. Your argument holds no water unless he government tells us it has to, and then people will only continue to get frustrated. People have eyes. No matter what is told to them, they still see what goes on.

Re: To all of you who have anything to say about Black people.
Do you think black people should be given reparations due to CULTURE or GENETICS?

Is it genetics? Obviously not, because the black people in America are a combination of races, and no doubt a lot of white blood is in there.

So then, it IS culture. But culture is not a race.

Why is it that a person who has a tiny bit of black blood is considered black? But a "white person" who has American Indian ancestors is still considered white? Why is B.O. black, instead of half black and half white? Just something to think about--I truly don't get it.

Re: To all of you who have anything to say about Black people.
Man i swear yall so fuckin racist it aint funny. its 2011, we aint gotta sit at the back of the bus no more. Most of the problems between black and white people today, is alot of whites don't respect black people, we are the same as you, believe it or not we bleed, and shit the same, but yes in the jeans i am more impressive, other than that, look past the skin and we all the same. but im startin to think it aint no hope for billy bob, and willie ray, they stuck in the 50's
 Quoting: NewAge1


Who is stuck in the 50's? Why are yall democrats? The party of slavery. The party of the KKK. The party of lynch mobs, and Jim Crow laws.

WTF is the matter with you?
 Quoting: Chuck Farley

I treat all people nicely.
At work, I have quite a few black women customers who refuse to talk to me if I ask them a question. They are snooty and walk away as fast as they can. It truly hurts my feelings, and I know it is about race.

person quoted above: if white people appear to not respect you, it isn't because of your race, it is because you speak quite unintelligently with improper grammar, you make racist(superior) comments, and you are vulgar. If you began speaking like an intelligent person who doesn't think himself superior, and stop being so vulgar, I'll bet you'll see different reactions from people of all races. In other words, they will respect you a lot more.

"5. American black people are due reparations no matter what has become of the completely beaten down group of peoples who were originally enslaved and stolen from their lands. "



Lol, I will die before I give anyone anything for something of which I had no part. You will not use your great-great grandfathers plight as a reason to extort money from me.

I would love to know why you think your ancestors' servitude to someone else entitles YOU to anything?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1050798


Because we are STILL affected by it! My goodness, is that too hard to understand?

Damn. I'm going to watch Netflix and go back to my happy place where I forget this mentality still exists. Rome wasn't built in a day and it seems eyes certainly won't be opened tonight.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1402552


Eyes opened? Sorry that I do not feel bad for something I did not do. I am sorry that you were unable to make enough people feel guilty for something they never did. Good luck in the future in your search for gullible enough people to agree to extortion based on something that their ancestors may or may not have taken part in.

You were never a slave, stop pretending you were.

Re: To all of you who have anything to say about Black people.
Consider these few fine points:

1. American Black people are mainly descendants of peoples who were taken from their homelands and enslaved for multiple generations over hundreds of years.

2. Systematic indoctrination and "dumbing down" made certain that the future of the cultures and peoples taken would never again be of great intellectual or socioeconomic significance.

3. Institutionalized segregation from higher education opportunities and/or employment create incredible adversity for those of us who want so badly to change our predetermined poverty and perceived ignorance. (And yes, affirmative action helped but now reverse racism is just as bad)

4. Although there are many of us who have and will continue to make wonderful situations and opportunities of our lives, there are a vast many more who will never even know what it means to have conviction or determination, let alone even be able to spell the words.

5. American black people are due reparations no matter what has become of the completely beaten down group of peoples who were originally enslaved and stolen from their lands.


and one final point.

6. Most of the people who make comments about the activities, decisions or actions of American Black people, commonly have no contact with black people or an educated and experience-driven opinion worth listening to.

In closing,
I have no need to call names or point fingers, you who have made racist comments have done plenty of that. We are one race of beings and really need to start realizing that those of us who are systematically kept in certain socioeconomic and cultural positions deserve a little more understanding.

I myself have 2 bachelors degrees, graduated university with a 3.7 average after 6 years and currently have a magnificent and fulfilling career with my eyes on the future. Not all black people are as fortunate. But seriously guys and gals, take a step back and look at your own lives and try to realize that people who are told they will never amount to anything, will always think that way. Send them your positive thoughts instead of scathing, ignorant remarks and perhaps things would shift. The power of intention is boundless, limitless.
 Quoting: Tokpela


GLP could be so much more, but the moderators allow this racist drivel to permeate the boards daily. I don't think "most" white people are like the fine specimens we see on GLP woth their blood type threads and black people this, black people that, threads. It would be nice to have a place to just congregate with like minded HUMANS untainted by racism, but that is a pipe dream I imagine...until we can grow up more as a species.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1050798


I'll bite

Because my ancestors were systematically stripped of any opportunity to build or aquire anything of value in this country for generations, instead they were worked, beaten, raped, removed from their land, families, culture and brought here to be treated like animals in a US government approved abomination of human rights. Today there are still companies doing business that have benefited from slavery and those are the people/businesses that should have to pay. Not you or your family who probably never owned slaves.
 Quoting: Silkstalkings


Lol, that has what to do with you? You are an individual. Stop trying to find reasons to take from someone else utilizing your very narrow minded view on world history.

Do you even realize how little 40 acres and a mule is, divided by all his/her descendants? It comes out to like a few hundred dollars a person. Yes, that is the reason you have been struggling as a people. 600 dollars.

They commit crimes way more than other races, all of this deterioration while they have been treated special by society with all the affirmative action, set asides and minority scholarships. They have dome so much damage to society they should be made liable and forced to pay everyone that isn't Negroid, reparations.
They now make a career out of being a victim pulling out that old race card so often that no one pays attention any more.

I did not enslave black people but can agree that it shouldn't have been done. At the same time, it was long ago and is something I have no power to change. It happened. It's bad but I didn't do it. I will not be made to feel guilty for being born white.

I will treat all people with a certain degree of respect, no matter what color they are; from there, they can either add to or take away that respect.
