My personal Opinion

Facts don't back that statement up? o.k then which facts?

Trillions of dollars have been spent? huh most likely alot of the money probably goes to administration of the programs (secretaries, case managers etc) since after all it is a social program.

Well lack of personal responsibility spans every race lol but slavery did have an effect on every generation since.

www.musc.edu...

answers.yahoo.com...

www.topix.com...

And yes every race had it's difficulties and every race has been effected in some way by those difficulties.

But me mateys the be my humble opinion arghhhhh lol

My personal Opinion

what people fail to recognize is that the events of the past still have reprecussions to this day on peoples decendants.





Thats a pretty common claim, however the facts don't back it up.

Literally trillions of dollars have been spent on social programs in which blacks are the chief beneficiary, yet they still lag behind.

The biggest problem in the black community today is a lack of personal responsibility, and slavery had nothing to do with that.


My favorite argument the anti-white racists present to us is that "blacks only lag behind because they don't get good education, and they live in poverty."

Uhh, what? What school did you people go to? I graduated school a long time ago, and even back then, whites and blacks went to the SAME SCHOOL and received the SAME EDUCATION.

Today, blacks even receive BETTER education than whites thanks to the department of education, such as free scholarships just because they are black. And yet, black IQ is still the same as it's always been, much lower than white's IQ.

Of course it doesn't matter what IQ they have or how stupid they are, blacks will still get jobs over white males due to affirmative action. My supervisor is black, and every night he has to write things on a board with a marker to let us know what we are up against for the night. Guess what, he spells almost every word wrong, and gets basic math wrong.

And this is a federal government agency.

Jesus christ.

Yes, and the stronger races have come out on top. Namely whites, and east asians.

School drop out rates, test scores, the amount of blacks on social programs such as welfare, tanf, etc etc.

Uh, social programs such as those I mentioned above. Blacks compose approximately 17% of the population, yet per capita, they receive more TANF dollars than any other race.


Well lack of personal responsibility spans every race lol but slavery did have an effect on every generation since.

Really? Does slavery make blacks commit more violent crimes than any other race per capita?

Did slavery make black fathers leave once they found out they impregnated someone? 70% of black children of born into a single parent home.

Did slavery make black kids drop out of school at record rates?

No.

My Personal Opinion

Whether other africans sold them into slavery they were still kidnapped and forced into labour so this point is moot.

Well people could be happy living in the jungle or in the city, whatever floats that persons boat is what the person would choose.

Not to mention alot of the supposed achievements you talk about would not have been invented without people of other ethinicities.

Wow modern day egyptians are berber and arab!!! thank you for this information maybe I could use it if I ever get on a game show.

Reputation is kinda like a sterotype sometimes true and sometimes not I've never been so I don't know.

LOL there are crazies of every race so you should be on the lookout for everyone


If Europeans are more intelligent then africans where is your proof? any links to studies which support your position?

But all this is my personal opinion yay.

billions of dollars do get spent and who's pockets does this money go into? the white american who is teaching these people. And why do they get the job instead of the white american? Its because this white owned company can pay minimum wage for their services..

It's just funny that we can segregate each other when all in all we are the same people in the same boat. We get up in the morning, brush our teeth, go to work, get home, eat dinner and go to bed. How many of you people are lucky enough to be able to say that in most part you can do that? You have no reason to be complaining, most of you have gradual income stream, a wife an two kids. The ability to enjoy your life. Freedom. And then when you have one little insignificant change in your social standing it's like as if it's the end of the world.

We humans are pathetic creatures and parasites to this planet. If we can fight amongst our own people and segregate them into groups, discriminate and fight wars to kill each other. We don't deserve freedom..

My personal opinion


per capita eh so not all that much money is flowing in actuality due to them being only 17% of the population.

No slavery doesn't but the effects of slavery is the most likely explanation if you are correct about africans americans commiting more violent crime or crime in general.

Butg you also have to recognize that violent crime done by caucasians is often unreported or nothing is done about it.

70% eh well a link to the study where your numbers came from would be nice,

Like I said earlier the effects of slavery.

thats my humble personal opinion

It just annoys me that the fact that some of you people have the nerve to talk about racism this way when you have not been on the receiving end of it.

I thought we were humans and we could have already gotten over this topic but it seems like nothing has changed from the past..

Actually more money is going to them than any other race:

Youre kidding right? Hell, crimes are reported that whites didnt even commit. Take the Duke rape case for example....


70% eh well a link to the study where your numbers came from would be nice,


Almost 70 percent of black children are born to single mothers

How ignorant is it of you to assume we havent been subjected to racism?

Unless of course you are one of those who thinks only whites can be racist.....

If you need a link to tell you Europeans are more intelligent than Africans I don't think your even qualified to be at the PC without supervision. Jesus, each race has their own talents and intelligence just isn't one Blacks are blessed with, some are but most.... It's true here in the states Blacks are the cause of most our problems, I really don't know what else white people can do for them, whites have given them soooo much money in funding, whites have given up their own rights and given blacks extra rights, which is actually illegal considering all the anti discrimination laws, but whites are only discriminating against themselves, lol...so stupid! Seriously though, what else can whites do, how many times can officials appologize for something no one alive is responcible for, it really is time to stop playing the race card and using the slavery thing as an excuse and move on and step up.

At this point it is nothing more than being lazy and un motivated. This is an issue with personal accountability and as long as white people give them a crutch they will continue to use it, I will not have white guilt for something that my ancestors may not of even payed any role it, like all white people were slave owners, lol, you people are the sheep of this earth. Accountability should be the law and that goes for the muslim religion for not having any hindsight or foresight to change their quran accordingly. And comparing living people(muslims) with dead people(slave owners) is ludicrous.

Oh I'm sorry, I didn't know whites could not be on the receiving end of racism. That's right, only whites can be racist. I totally forgot.

Where does it state that only black people are on the receiving end of racism? I see that racism occurs for everyone no matter what colour they are. I just don't like people dealing out these racist or prejudice remarks as the OP has clearly stated. Do you understand me now?

Racisism is all realative to what enviroment you live in or forced to live in, i do not believe your a racist for fearing for your life. Here in america I rarely here muslims speak out against the actions of the radical muslims. That to me is troublesome. Although it could be that they are actually aware and have been for years how crazy the radicals are and find it best to keep there mouth shut. However by doing this it has made it hard to distinguish btw the good and bad. On a much lesser scale we have radical black leaders that make a living by sposing racism at the drop of a hat. In fact the biggest racist flubs I have seen lately have been committed by them although I do see a young new black leadership moving in that does not subscribe to the hatred. This is the world we have all made and we all must "LIVE" in it. Live is the key word, to some its means being safe and away from people who propogate terrorism, others it means living in a country they can spouse hatered in the name of liberation. Its just so complicated who can really judge.

Ever happened to think if americans stopped causing so many problems around the world we would actually have some peace. I'm not just talking about politically but through globalisation also.
