If you're asking if those countries participated in slavery a Google search will show you they all did.


Not what I asked. Do you need me to retype the question?





I don't have time to break down slave import to populations of countries at the time, but no, Denmark didn't import 10x the slaves as their own population. What a ridiculous question.

Where did you get 10 times? *sigh* Looks like I do have to retype my question.

Did any of them import millions of blacks like we did?

Black people are not happy in any country.
The only common factor is black people.

But the media keeps telling us how racist we are.

We treat black people like frikin gods in this country. Athletes , actors, musicians, politicians.

Michael Jordan is treated like a king. Lebron James is called King James , oprah Winfrey is one of the richest most adored women in the world

Some of the most popular actors, the most popular musicians the most popular athletes are black..
Any time you watch the news there is always a black anchor or weatherman or sports guy.

They get a voice they get a vote they can become POTUS for christs sake.

How does a racist country elect a black man to lead us ####### twice???

There is not a better place on this planet to be a black person. they are revered and respected .

How do you libs not see it?



You make many good points, but it's very likely the chocolate man Barack Obama became POTUS only because he was in very good graces with the CIA, with his mother working for institutes and companies rather cozy with the agency.

And it is still true the despite the fame and good standing of black artists and athletes, for the average black person driving, life can be very dangerous. Driving, walking, knocking on doors and pretty much everything else is much more dangerous for the black person than for the white person.

37 million or so Black Americans.

1000 or so have "star status" which is 0.000027% of Black People.

Yeah, that settles it....


Oh cmon there are 100s of thousands black celebrities worth millions.

There are tens of thousands from one or 2 sports leagues alone . They have been getting paid millions for decades now .

Are you black?

If not, there's a lot of irony in a white person telling black people how good they got it.

Let's ask Beez....

It's only in America where a black man could be elected to the presidency by popular vote then spend the following eight years whining about racism.

No president has ever been elected by popular vote.

He wasn't whining. He was pointing out that it's still around and alive.

Just because a black man became president doesn't mean racism just goes away.

This country has a very long history with racism. How do you not see that?

Just because minorities can rise to being famous that doesn't mean that there isn't racism.

And just because you may not be racist doesn't mean that there aren't some white supremacists out there that are.

I'll just leave this here.

Apparently pointing out that black on black crime equates to racially driven crimes against black people.

Putting the blame back on black people is only showing more ignorance to the issue. It's the same as outspoken racists and white supremacists who want all black people to go back to Africa or stay segregated in racially oppressed areas of the country.

It is just as ignorant to ignore the fact that black people kill white people also, but there is no screams of racism then. Why not?

Hey, as long as they are entertaining us they can stay, yes?

There was that one president too, then we elected eraserhead to undo it all.

We still have lots of racial issues to overcome.
Simplistic analogies don’t help at a all.

Ahh but how do they become such huge celebrities in such a racist country? How does a black man get elected POTUS twice in such a racist country?



Because they make other people (usually Jewish) A LOT of money.

Think about it

This may have been said already.... and if so, apologies.

You have 99 problems, but being black ain't one.

In all seriousness, I don't think a non black person should be making this claim. I'm not trying to be a jerk, but I take it seriously when a black person makes these claims (and there are more than one might think that do- and I listen to their voice on the issue).
