"People who speak out against there own oppression". Realshanti, that's from you.
I ask you, when a person can't have a United Caucasian College Fund, but another can have a United Negro College Fund... what is principly wrong
I am not saying having a United Negro College Fund is Racist at all (though by definition it is), I am saying the circumstance of having a United
Negro College Fund but NOT ALLOWING for a United Caucasian College Fund is Racist.
There are laws saying you HAVE to hire African-Americans, Spanish-Americans, Cuban-Americans.... ever see a law saying X amount of employees had to
The point is that people aren't asking for BALANCE, they are asking for EDGE and EDGE IS NOT EQUALITY. Yet, so conveinantely, they saying these are
EQUAL RIGHTS. I can, you can't... those aren't Equal at all.
Back to your quote on People and their Oppression. How long does this chain continue? As I said, I'm Irish, Native American, Italian and German.
Some pretty oppressed peoples along with one who did some oppression... so by your statement Me and 'My People' should speak out against our
Oppression. Except, at the moment, I see ALL PEOPLE OF LOWER CLASS being oppressed. It's a Class Issue, not a Race Issue. (Unless you want all of
your race only in the Upper Class).
People refuse to open their eyes to such. They figure robbing a poor Caucasian so a poor African-American can get the Scholarship and spot in
College is the answer. This is not so.
If people want Equality, they have to show the ability to judge and act on Equality. Not say "We can have this because we are this color, and you
can not have this because you are another skin color". What would happen to me if I attempted to win a Negro College Fund Scholarship, and after
winning due to Merit I admitted I wasn't Negro?
They would strip me of the Scholarship and put me on the Media to crucify me.
Now, if an African-American won a Scholarship from Harvard, then admitted he was African-American what would happen? If they tried revoking his
Scholarship everyone in America would say how Racist Harvard was, after all the kid won on merit.
Except BOTH broke a TRUST with the College/Fund. Both LIED to GAIN. Neither should be allowed the reward. Yet only ONE would be defended. And it
wouldn't be me.
Shall we go over what some can say and others can't again?
Now, please, show me where the media has me sold on their ideas. The same Media that would crucify me for either the UNCF Fraud or for saying the N
Word with cameras and recorders around. The same media that would come to the rescue of that poor African-American that Harvard is being racist to,
while telling his friends "Ya'll feel me, cause ya'll my N's." probably then releasing a Rap Song called A "N" Can't Even Get An Education,
hitting #1 on the Charts due to being so 'Contriversal' (Think the song by the Caucasian "I Lost My Spot In College Because Me and a "N" Both
Cheated And They Let Him In But Gave Me The Boot" would even get radio time? That's a negative.)
I am sick and tired of having some one tell me they want Equality, but then refuse to be treated equally. It is very hypocritical, and the Media has
nothing to do with it.
I've never once owned a Slave of any Race. I've never once been a Slave of any Race (though maybe the Government). That can be said of every
living person I know. So, please, EXACTLY how far back does this 'Oppressed People' act go? So we can get it over with and move on to the actual
Production, movement forward, actual equality. Not bickering over things 100 years old, or even 20. Because if you gripe about 20 years ago, 20
years from now you'll gripe about 40 years ago. It will never end. Let us all open are eyes and see who really is oppressed NOW. The Poor.
