Sure, there is no way to prove that Metallica ever ripped off anyone. Much less a band that not too many people ever heard of. If Saxon EVER thought
they were ripped off, don't you think THEY would have said something?????
I don't agree with my post being edited just for the record.
That's fine, I will stick to the topic, but if you go back through the thread you started this saying how good Saxon is and how Metallica ripped them
Until everyone gets over being proud of any heritage other than human heritage there will be all kinds of racism. Racism doesn't have to be a violent
act, it just is (IMHO) the thought of being above other races. In ANY kind of way
First off, I was just responding to another user who said he liked Saxon as well. Now I see why you are getting so angry. You don't agree with me
being "proud" of my heritage. Why? I'm not racist. Did I come across that way? What if the post was called "proud of my Ethiopian heritage"
and I posted some music from Ethiopia? Would I be racist then? You're basically just confirming the point of the thread- that there's a double
standard. White people can't be proud of their heritage while others can. Thanks for finally getting on topic by the way.
I understand what you are saying, there is not White pride day, like many other races, genders (gay pride) but until those days go away there will be
racism. The reason for these days, celebrations is because those groups don't feel they are recognized in this society. I'm not saying they are or
are not. White males are perceived to dominate this society so why do white males have to shout out about being proud.
It's more like I'm celebrating the original explorers of the Americas. The real discoverers never get proper credit, and our public schools teach
kids that Christopher Columbus was the first, which is a lie.
I have a deep respect for Native American culture. My parents say that I'm actually part Native American, though it's not nearly enough of a % to
join the Native American Church. I read Black Elk Speaks and know about the sad history of it all. I've concluded that Christianity is to blame
since the King Philip's War was fought over converting people to Christianity.
Interesting. My ancestors were in the Lenai Lenape tribe of the north east. It would be nice to see the American Indian get the same respect and
apologetic demeanor as African Americans do for slavery. What was done to both was awful.
