I didn't say "Whitey" owed. I said America owes for the actions of its government. You don't believe that. You are fine with taking advantage
of the assets of America but you want no part of its debts and what happened or who it terrorized for you to have those benefits. You in a discussion
of a topic choose to call me a racist. I've called you NOTHING. I've discussed my views on a topic with no personal attack or assessment of you.
You can't do the same, because you feel inclined to make the discussion personal.
You say you owe no one, but we all stand on the shoulders of those before us. You say you have no wealth from being white but comparatively the white
community DOES have more wealth than the black community in America because of the ills of the past.
So you are truly not interested in equality. You are interested in an equal start from today forward in terms of earnings and ignoring what has
happened to put the black community economically where it is today. I'm ok with that. It doesnt cause me to call you dangerous or say you are a
racist. Though you are in favor of allowing an inequity caused by racism to go without correction or remedy.
Just don't say you are for equality because you obviously are not.
Any correction to you is racist. But keeping it exactly the same without redress is absolutely fair in your eyes.
At least I know what I'm dealing with. You see unfairness as fair. (Not much different from many whites in the previous generations. It's the
same general mindset. Blacks are due whatever fairness you deem fair and you ultimately control it. Anyone who disagrees causes you to start yelling
names and making a personal assessment of them as though YOU are fit to make that judgement (As you have here in a respectful discussion where I've
done nothing of the sort to you in return.)
You say blacks have an "unfair" leg up but somehow the number of government contracts awarded don't reflect that. The income numbers don't
reflect that. The unemployment numbers don't reflect that. The wealth of the black community doesn't reflect that.
So all that you have is your view of fairness as evidence and even as NOTHING has been done to whites (as a group) that is nearly comparative to the
terrorism blacks have endured at the hands of white society in America (you can say it wasn't all but it was at least most because it was made the
law of the land and the people ultimately determine that) YOU feel emotionally compelled to hurl insults and make judgements that blacks are holding
someone else's past against you. We ALL stand on the shoulders of the past (one that blacks are still turning pages to get beyond every year with
new black "firsts" though those firsts matter little when blacks don't control the economies of their communities.)
I don't desire to hurt you. I don't desire to insult you. I simply desire for the economics of the community of black people to be controlled by
black people And to you that makes me a racist. Race is a man made designation and so is nationhood. I'm sure you wouldn't be ok with immigrants
coming in and running America's economy. Do you complain about job losses from jobs going overseas? Immigration problems? If so Sr. You aren't
practicing what you are preaching or suggesting that blacks or I do in this thread.
You see you are perfectly fine with declaring what is fair to blacks but you wouldn't want those same shoes. The mere THOUGHT of the black
community having control economically of their own community makes you start yelling names and throws intelligent adult discussion out of the
Instead of repairing the inequality u leave it on the shoulders of blacks alone and pretend you have no benefit.
