Do you deny Iran hangs gays in the streets with the permission of the government? And do you also deny your president famously and proudly announcing
to the world that there are "no gays in Iran"?
Was it not long ago, Black Men were found hanging from trees .
Nice to see you stand up for your beliefs though, you go girl.
Yep, but we have moved past that, havent we?
And when those black men were swinging, it wasnt with the governments explicit permission. Think before you speak.
Did our president ever announce proudly that "There are no more blacks in the USA!"?

But turning a blind eye, to such things happening IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD isnt exactly proactive, either.
I've read this thread by the OP and i'm in complete agreement with his OP, as it's based in fact.
Fact: CIA/ US has been involved in "nation building" for a very long time, and using a variety of methods....How many times were attempts made to wipe
out Fidel?? i think the count stands at 42.
Fact: Western governments HAVE propped up foreign governments, installing puppets.
Fact: Central banking has grown in accordance with the toppling of governments.
I tried to keep to observation only, but when mentioning the particular issue that I personally know, has had far reaching negative effects, I had to
One of My eldest uncles, while growing up in Arkansas to sharecroppers(yes, i know there were white ones too, but that's not the point of this
account, in this specific case), witnessed the ugliness of unsubstantiated Racism and it followed him to his grave. As a child on this land his dad
worked, the land owners house was right there on-site. There was also a freshwater creek that was on-site as well and it was common knowledge amongst
the sharecroppers that "You Dont go near that creek, Mr. (insert land owners name) don't want us in it." Try telling that to a 5-7yr old growing up
on the Mississippi Delta in the summer.....thirst, is thirst.
One day, my uncle and childhood friend were out playing , they got thirsty. They go to the creek and when they got there, they seen the owners kids,
who were of the same age roughly, and they all began playing. Eventually, they parted ways and some time later (my uncle couldn't recall the # of
days), He and his friend found themselves playing out near the creek again. Some how, the owner found out his daughters had been playing with black
kids by the creek and had been staking out the creek since then. My uncle went on to state that, "I heard Mr land owner and some more men yell out to
us, and start chasing us. I was able to run and hide at the opening of trees near the creek, but they caught my friend. then i heard him screamin, and
then moaning, then he stopped." What happened to his friend, is that when the men caught up to him, they had castrated him, leaving him there to bleed
out. This kid was no older than 8yrs old. My uncle said that when the men left, he eventually came out of hiding to look for his friend, and when he
found him, he was curled up, holding his genital area in a pool of blood, dead. No police touched it, and no one charged.
From that moment on, My uncle never fully trusted white people, something i never knew, nor did I understand, until My dad and I were doing video
interviews of our oldest family members who grew up in the Delta before moving North(the Great Migration)...and that was the first time my uncle ever
spoke of it, to anyone but my grandfather(when it first happened). My Grandfather was there to verify the story and I was blown, as I didn't expect to
hear anything even remotely close to what they told us. My dad didnt know either, because he was 6yrs old when the family moved north, and wasn't born
when the incident happened. Family verified that uncle was never quite right after that incident, exhibited a distrust of white men, and started
acting self-destructively(drinking/drugs/fights) at an early age. I was far from being born then, but i knew uncle to be the...well...lovingly Drunk
uncle, all my life he was always drunk, but he was also a happy guy then, and until then, hardly anyone could pinpoint where the drinking/drugs came
from. Not too long(months) after stunning the family with that story, Uncle drank himself to death.
Self destructive persons/terrorists aren't born...there's always a reason such people are created.
I didnt even want to share this, but seeing as how people seem to believe the fallacy that We (america) is hated for being "free/prosperous" is such a
lie. I think that if people knew, acknowledged or even cared about half the things that their respective nations have done in your name, you'd be
pissed. We didnt get here by playing nice everywhere.
