Everyone knows about it, what matters in our society, in the United States is black slavery, because to this day, blacks are marginalized. You think the 12 year old kid would have been shot were he white? Most likely not, but he was black, and the brains of the cops were programmed to see thug.

You can spin it anyway you want but it doesn't change a thing, black lives matters is a direct result of racism in America especially by the authorities just as the Black Panthers were during the civil rights struggle.


You are missing the point entirely. I would agree with you that racism against African Americans still exists in America today (would anyone deny that?). That provides no justification though for what this professor wrote.

He predicts it because he knows damn well it is an issue.


So is prostrate cancer, but rational minds are able to consider one issue at a time.

BOTH criminal violence in African American communities AND disproportionate unjustified shootings by police can be an issue simultaneously and one can discuss or address either issue by itself.

The rational behind "alllivesmatter" as a retort to "blacklivesmatter" is as inane as denouncing the Breast Cancer Foundation for not caring about people that suffer from Bone Cancer...

Folks are allowed to highlight a specific issue...and African Americans have multiple issues that they are working to highlight...and good on them for it.

We are only talking about racism in the united states and the only slaves the US used were Black, Natives made for horrible slaves, they were strong willed and refused to work, thus, they were exterminated.

What you are makes no difference, I don't see humanity divided by race, but most people do,

Denying that racism is still a problem in this country will make for one rude awakening when they had enough and start fighting back.

I for one, cannot wait for the day

Read my statement again, I am in no way saying the guy isn't an idiot. Look at OP and how he introduced the article, when I hear anti-white its like hearing Christians being repressed in the united states.

Its like a bully trying to justify bullying others all his life because someone told him he couldn't bully anymore.

Racism does exist, and it goes both ways, those that pretend it doesn't are the ignorant ones. Racism is also no where near what it's made out to be. Things have come a long way. To hear you speak about it, Jim Crow is still in full swing.

I swear, what pisses me off most about this is that, there are lots of people fighting for equality, both black, white, yellow, orange, polka dot and any other color you can think of. Yet it's ok to ignore the sacrifices of the white colored people that died, martyred in this fight, that did so much to bring about the positive changes.

Racism is bad, period, end of story. Whites fought and die to this day for equal rights for all.

Stop #ing pissing on the sacrifice of your white skinned brothers and sisters by pretending racism towards whites and painting all whites with the same racist brush is ok.

I partially agree - which is why I said on this thread it is better to leave skin colour out of the discussion completely. This guy should just be called a racist , not a "racist black professor".

Where I disagree is that I would not call this guy an idiot, as you have. I say it like it is. He is not an idiot, he is a racist.

I used to work in a lab. Every morning, Willie, the funniest black guy I have met, came into my lab and told Chinese jokes.

Did I excoriate him? No. I laughed along with him. He enjoyed being silly and I enjoyed it both because he was funny and because he was a good man who was full of life.

Racial finger-pointing is pointless. We are all guilty of it and we are all "victims" of it.

As long as a group cries wolf other groups will grow less and less interested in their complaints because ALL have suffered in one yoke or another.

In that instance, the wisest investment is a mirror.

You don't know what you're talking about. No amount of unnecessary spaces are going to add validity to your argument. Since you choose to bring up Lee in your bullsh#t revisionist history argument, let's see what the man himself said about the reasons for secession.

Robert E. Lee in a letter dated December 27, 1856:


I was much pleased the with President's message. His views of the systematic and progressive efforts of certain people at the North to interfere with and change the domestic institutions of the South are truthfully and faithfully expressed. The consequences of their plans and purposes are also clearly set forth. These people must be aware that their object is both unlawful and foreign to them and to their duty, and that this institution, for which they are irresponsible and non-accountable, can only be changed by them through the agency of a civil and servile war. There are few, I believe, in this enlightened age, who will not acknowledge that slavery as an institution is a moral and political evil. It is idle to expatiate on its disadvantages. I think it is a greater evil to the white than to the colored race. While my feelings are strongly enlisted in behalf of the latter, my sympathies are more deeply engaged for the former. The blacks are immeasurably better off here than in Africa, morally, physically, and socially.


He's referring to President Franklin Pierce who was an anti-abolitionist, notable for supporting the right of the former Indian Territories to determine whether or not to allow slavery (Kansas–Nebraska Act) and for his support for the Fugitive Slave Act.

Of course, like many others of his time, though he viewed slavery as wrong, he justified its existence in part by holding that African slaves were better off as slaves in America than free people in Africa (the mid-19th century fear of white guilt?).


He didnt do it because he wanted slaves, he did it because he didnt want Virginia ruled by washington.


Contort all you want, in the end it all comes back to one thing — the only sovereign "right" the seceding states cared to preserve was the "right" to preserve the institution of African slavery which was the backbone of their agrarian economies. Robert E. Lee clearly knew what you cannot bring yourself to admit and he was pretty deep in denial (he also believed that Christianity would bring about an end to slavery when God deemed it).


Lincoln ALSo thought Slaves were not as important as the white man as well and wanted to send them back to africa after they fought for the north. And technology was making slavery un profitable because you didnt have to feed a cotton gin. Or convince th e machine to work with force.

If th e south would had bent over for Lincoln and did as told there would not had been a civil war and slavery would had continued. So much fo r th e great emancipators true intentions. Read his letters. HE was racist as th e day is long.

I thought this was going to be about Obama when I read the thread title. I'm not sure if I can handle another one of his lectures on how accommodating I need to be to people who want to kill me. Even if he is actually the one responsible for creating ISIS.

Lol had to get a little Obama hate in huh. We are talking about a black man in the op. So why not talk about the other black guy you don't like. Fyi, Obama didn't create ISIS the policies and tactics of the government of the United States of America did.

So many closet racist n one thread to jump on the bandwagon. History does show that white Europeans have been exploiting humans from other continents for eons, slavery has been around since humanity has existed but no one has profited so much from it then White people, denying it means denying your entire history.

All empires have been built on the backs of slaves and the best empires were built by white Europeans.



Boo bloody hoo.

Grow a pair.

My ancestors were trodden down in the mud by the rich folks who owned the land they worked on.
You go back 3 generations and my great granny lost almost half her babies because of malnutrition and overwork.
2 generations and my great uncle was killed in a war that was nowt to do with him, while 2 of my great grandads had to live with ptsd and be worked to death after the war, then my grandparents suffered through another war and were the first generation of my famly to actually climb out of poverty.

Oh, wait, I can't blame a racial group for that, can I?

Neither can any black person. Figure out who your enemy is lest you make enemies of us all.

I swear I suspect alot of in the closet-non-man-enough-to-admit-I-am-racist behavior going on here, all over this letter a professor wrote -



well check this out, let me let logic speak for itself

If this story were about a Muslim, and the letter was addressed to all Americans, would you still be offended? Most likely not, atleast not as emotionally affected as so many of you seem by this story. And yet, what's the difference?

We see women post stories in similar format, addressed to men - as if all men are the same, are those who are offended by this offended by those too? Tell us, OP, where did you find this website? Was it shared on a racist website? Let's be honest here.

Well not a racist but I appear to be a sexist the wife has to hit me in the head every now and then to get me straight. I think the problem many have is ra ism is brandished like a sword today. Thus professor for example obviously he has black guilty he's dealing with to justify himself as being black he feels he must address black issues. That's fine just relize where his point of view comes from and take it with a grain of salt. I know professors like him at my university as well as others that I would say are more republican. Leads to some interesting debates actually about the question is racism today a self fullfilling prophecy. If you look for racism you will find it if its there or not. A white guy goes into a bank is tirned down for a loan its because his credit is bad. A black guy goes in for a loan it will depend on his point of view. He will either realize he needs to straighten out his credit or he will say its because of racism and he will continue to screw up his credit.

Racism can be a crutch used to explain away all those things you don't like. Whites do it as well go in screw up on a job interview and they cab either say wow I messed up or they can say its because of quotas and im white. In the end racism can only stop you from achieving your goals if you believe it to be true.

Sadly I see some of my students buying into this racism as their crutch in life to explain the inadqucies. Even had one student that told me I needed to have a separate test for black students her logic was that their experience differs from white students. So I asked a simple question I asked well should I use a curve for black students in order to make it fair. She said yes so then I asked her well then wouldn't I have to make a test so the white students could score higher as well. Ahe said no they already have an advantage. Won't go into the long story here but after about 30 MIN she can't to realize treating someone different because of race is just another form of racism doesn't mater if its a benefit or a hinderance.

In the end if you seek something you will always find it my attitude in life is I don't look for the worst I look for the best in peiple. People come in all shapes and sizes and all have differing opinions some good some bad. Have o met white racists yes I have my wife is actually black. Have I met black racists yrs ny brother in law still doesn't aprove after 6 yrs does it matter no.

History just repeats itself before there was black slaves there were white and Asian and they went through the same things. Slavery has been around as long as man. Even when you look into the middle ages that was state sponsored slavery. We called it indentured servitude at the time. There is no race on this planet that hasn't dealt with slavery. What makes the black ordeal different is we expect them to have known better because it is still fresh in our memories. Problem is we can't judge the past only except it. These things happened people have been mistreated and the scary part slavery still exists today. Its happening in the middle east mostly white women. And again china with sex slaves even in countries like the united states and europe. And then there is states and rebel governments that also practice forced labor, with at least 2.2 million people worldwide in state-imposed forms of forced labor.

Sadly slaves today have it even worse they are much more dispendable so vert little care is given to them. Where prior ti this slaves were a huge investment and the person tried to take care of their investment. Today these people get sick can't work they are simply killed and replaced. It's sad his everyone ignores this because they choose to.

I'm just going by facts, as presented by the links I posted. I'm not old enough to have listened to the actual slaves themselves, do you have videos?

If you read my post again, perhaps you'll understand that I said slaves in the New World were safer than slaves in the Caribbeans, where they kept being imported because of such a high rate of death.

Nobody is downplaying slavery. Nobody. Think about that And read my links next time before calling me ignernt, aight?

Obviously slavery is travesty of humanity, and no one is exempt. But to be fair it was white Europeans who were the first to abolish slavery in the history of the universe, while everyone else, including black africans (as late as 1980) continued on. Yet no one mentions the Ottoman empire's slave trade. No one mentions the Brazilian slave trade. Without white Europeans, slavery would still be going on.


Slaves your referring to wasn't treated as subhuman like here.


They were treated worse outside of America. They were clothed, fed, and sheltered in America.
