Yeah well, you are talking about something that never before had been done in the history of the world.
Never before have "Slaves" and I mean slaves, not just the prisoner of war buy your freedom crap, but the born a slave die a slave crap that really
didn't start till more recent times.
These Slaves all of a sudden were made "unslaves" which was a BIG step. So it's expected that they'd be treated MUCH worse afterwards, than all
the time before.
I do think it is sad that Blacks don't recognize that their great great grandfathers did so much more to help them, then they are doing. The civil
rights movement was a must to end it all once and for all, but that's now past, yet Blacks still want to "rise up against white oppressors" at
least in Rap culture that's so.
Their ancestors helped them more and more, by NOT rising up, by slowly walking out of the hole we put them in, they gained respect, rather than the
hatred that would have been gotten by Blacks stealing Whites houses and such and killing whites or whatever for revenge.
As for reprimands? I wouldn't mind something that'd help Blacks to realize they need to put on suits and ties not guns and attitude. But I
wouldn't make it out to be like we're repaying them for their ancestor's enslavement.
Black's ancestors voiced what they felt about this "reprimand" and they recieved no such reprimand, because they didn't ask for it. So I think we
should respect that, and realize that there's no way a reprimand would ever help blacks.
What would help them is if money went to turning their Ghettos into nice neighborhoods with green parks, and shinning streets of fresh layed concrete.
Not the cracked and rundown crap they mostly are.
I think people partly reflect the place they live, which is why I think the first best step to help the general black, is to simply make his
neighborhood nice. And not like, come in fix everything up and say "there you go."
But make them fix it up, just simply give them the gear, and say "ok here's what we want you to do, now do it."
Because as my grandma said, "You don't respect gifts, which is why you break everything. If you worked for it you would keep it in excellent
Get rid of rap, get blacks, mexicans, whites all poor people, to fix up their neighborhoods, to fix up their houses, with suppervision and free
equipment and supplies of course. And nothing extreme, just nailing boards back in the wall, fixing doors, windows, making parks cleaner and better.
Simple things that take time so they'll not expect it to become a piece of crap.
Things like that, would help the poor greatly.
