I got to wondering today what the world would be like had the South won the US Civil War and had Germany won WWII.
So I asked myself this question, should America thank it's black citizens for enduring slavery?
I'm not talking about reparations. I am talking about a simple thank you.
After all, had it not been for slavery, the US would not be the power it is today.
Slavery allowed the US to leap frog past the rest of the world in a shopping list of categories.
So what do ya think?
Are black people worthy of a little appreciation? They were, after all, drafted into service and it seems they did a pretty good job. For free. Without ever standing up for their own rights in mass until almost 100 years after the civil war.

How 'bout you just see them as Americans and don't make the distinction that they're "Black Americans" ...
I'm sure that will be thank you enough.

Yeah Mr Optimist, they will never dominate sports or music be major TV and Movie stars a black woman will never be the richest entertainer for females nor will a Black man ever be President
Certainly Black Men will never have any luck with White Women let alone be accepted by them...
Your right it's all dismal in terms of Black Americans ever being accepted...
