    Nice comments, but Eurpean Americas will eventually pay for the sins of their fathers. And don't ask the stupid question of "What Sins ?"
    If you can't see the next earthquake , valcano coming around the corner, then your in denial. Time to pay the Most High for the over kill done by your fathers.

    Nothing Personal, because I don't personally know you.

  2. Boers were Dutch and euro-mixed invaders…genocide is the systematic destruction of a singular culture of people. Don't get it twisted, europeans will kill each other in the spirit of greed. The Boer wars were about British domination in spite of the pre-existing presence of european invaders worldwide.

  3. Boer independence in S.A. was given away to the British in exchange for military support AGAINST the Zulus (native ppl of S.A.). The British merely took advantage of the upper hand in order to not only control the Zulus, but the white-skinned Boers as well.

  4. @mcfrandy a lot of people don't realize that Africans sold their own people as slaves to the europeans. This doesn't justify the bigotry of caucasians by any means, but another interesting point to know

  5. @mcfrandy My name is Daniel Moss, I'm a descendent of slaves living inOhio. My family now owns 600 acres of prime real estate in Crooked Island Bahamas as a result of slavery. We are Black. Are you suggesting in this statement that there are no more rich families who built their fortunes during slavery/cotton boom? There are, I attended school in the Carolina's with lots of families who owned plantations and are the influential,rich, powerful families still running things down there.

  7. @mcfrandy Your perspective is an idealistic one if you syggest (as I am not) that my experience is indicative of most Americans, furthermore Whites. My point, which you seemed to have purposefully missed, is that there were HUGE financial benefits of slavery, MOSTLY to the slave-owners and their descendants. Let's be punctual and reasonable. Once we accept that as truth, we can begin to dissect how that has played out over history and also discuss the use of restitution today by our govt.

  8. @mcfrandy Your mistake is in denying that many have benefitted from slavery. This is obvious to reasonable people. No one wishes to cast unfair responsibility on anyone. In fact, it is reasonable to me that restitution be paid by only those biz's/families who were in the business of slave trade and ownership. The same expectations are held to businesses today having been found guilty of business dealings with NAZI Germany. Restitutions have ALREADY been paid in the Millions. What IS fair?

  9. To give evry black person reparations would be silly and wasteful, but stopping the dialogue about the subject is harmful. The issue is: at any point in history, when has the country rushed to the aid of the freed african in this country? Blacks have been mis-treated by every major institution in the U.S. and only in the past 40 years could we drink out of the same water fountain. That's a long history of repression and Blacks have had to fight for every justice afforded us.

  10. @mcfrandy How might you feel generations later to be raised in a system that teaches you that everything Black is bad. Black kids choose white doll babies because they think their "cleaner",etc… I'm 39 and as Patriotic as you are,your history books were as barren as mine were about the story of my people. Who but Blacks rushed to create a Black History month? Who but blacks led the fight against desegregation. That charge did not emerge from the collective White conscience.

  11. @mcfrandy You may argue hard, but your view requires that Blacks be happy with the way things were. Frankly, Blacks have been asking for restitution SINCE slavery. Did the freed slaves get it? Their children took up their cry as they watched their parents die with nothing. Then their children kept asking..then their children, now I'm talking about it. You would rather the conversation die, now that it has gotten old, right? Well it wouldn't be old if people like you had demanded the govt

  12. @mcfrandy be more ethical in its treatment of its citizens. We were just allowed to vote a few decades ago! Do you know how many laws have been passed in the hundreds of years since slavery AND blacks had no representation at any level of govt? None? You may not know what that meeans, but I do. That means that it got worse and worse for the "so-called" freed blacks, while folks like yourself said "they're free, what are they complaining about?" Police dogs attacked us in the streets. Cmon

  13. @mcfrandy These were police dogs, again, ordered to attack peaceful people walking for "freedon". There is a notion that Blacks in this country are wild and uncivilized. If that is true, it has been this system which has created the public enemy. Look at Africans who come to the U.S> today vs. those brought as slaves. The harshness of the environment and treatment at the hands of the government and apathy of its citizens has led to a culture of dis-trust and further separation between

  14. @mcfrandy whites and blacks. Even when slaves were freed, there was a public paranoia that the freed africans would run wild and rape all the women, etc… Blacks were not allowed to carry guns even as "freed" men. Could not protect themselves or their families from the scourge of the day – ignorance and racism. HAving children and can't call a sherriff? No gun? Imagine the constant state of fear. Situation after situation passed down story by story. Where were people like you then?

  15. @mcfrandy People like you were saying, "Well heck, they're free, they have every right just like us." Perspective is everything. I am saying that the call never ceased for reparations. It has also never been answered. If my grandfather murdered your grandfather and he told you before he passed who did it, you'd want justice. Togo a step further, if our grandfathers died, but years later you found out that my family was keeping this secret (This is called complicity) you may

  16. @emanxavier Volcanos and earthquakes are payback? People are paying for their sins right now. We all have to live in this wicked world people are creating, all of us. Living in the hell and among the hell we have created for ourselves is part of our punishment. Many men will die rich and powerful and may or may not ever see a heaven or hell if there is such a thing. Ask them and they lived a good life,however they don't know that the bad for one is the bad for all.

  17. When Obama came to Portland Oregon I went to see him I was downtown Portland and the People directing the folks to the event kept sending us away from the event … I realized what was happening and I went to stand on a corner where other where waiting and suddenly this white woman shout out to me "hey we are not standing on this corner for YOU"…I look at the bitch and said "I thought this was a public street" anyway I left and followed the line I was one of the first people in the park CONT>

  18. And from where she was standing only 3000 people made it into Water Front Park that day and SHE WAS'NT ONE OF THEM…I was LMBO because 75'000 people showed up I was in the front of all of them…

  19. There is not a person living in America then or today that did not benefit from slavery… Slavery created the wealth and resources that provided food, clothing and shelter for everyone.. 5 Native America tribes owned our African foreparents. Everyone benefits that is why our African foreparents should be honored for the 255 years then 100 years of slavery and semi slavery they faced.

  20. i love being latino. it's neutral. i can walk anywhere in America, The Bronx or Beverly Hills, and not get looked at like i'm an alien. Anyway, every race is racist. ESPECIALLY minority groups. People who are paranoid of being hated on for the color of their skin should really learn to step outside of themselves. Paranoid people don't realize they're probably the ones causing the bad energy. Every race/religion/nation/ suffers. JUST DO U EVEN IF EVERY ONE IN FACT DOES HATE YOU FOR IT.

  21. she is indeed a treasure. The south Afrikan issue is not resolved though. The Black South Afrikan's she spoke to are probably similar to the Blacks who live here in America who say like racism is dead.
