The only history American blacks have IS slavery.
People who grip about black peope griping are not practising empathy.

I'm sure there are many white kids that were sat down and told about stories of how their families wealth came about. How the family worked hard by owning, working, breeding, and beating lazy slaves so they (the little white children) could have a future, you know what they call OLD money.
As far as slavery, there are no living slave owners nowadays.

I'm of mixed descent.
I hate me.
I owe me.
Will I pay me back?
Not unless I lynch myself first.
If I do that, I'll get a hate crime passed on me.
I'll lock me up.
Then I'll have to beat myself up in prison.
I'll just forgive me.
I thank me.
It's ok, me.

Could Wal Mart (and therefore the wealthy western citizens) not be considered slave owners ?
Most of the "stuff" in my home was made by very poor if not penniless people many of them children, in India and China .
OK, they do the work for a few peanuts, but at the end of the day if they don't they starve and die. How different is to enslaving them in their own country to bringing them home to work and feed ?
Little Indian or Chinese children are not doing my laundry at home because they kindly make me machines (polluting whee they live) to do my chores.
How do we define slavery in the 21st century I wonder ?
