Hey, folks, look how far we've come! Let's move forward from here together.
Didn't work the first like nine times black American's tried that. So what else was there to do? Ask nicely again?
I love how people focus on that aspect of his presidency so much, and call him a divisive POTUS, and will guarantee defend the clown in office right now whose currently watching his nation burn to the ground, on the verge of civil war, and hasn't called for unity once. But it's OK right?

Mate, that is a pretty weak “but but but” don’t you think? Just because a minute percentage of Africans and African Americans participated in the slave trade is not indicative of widespread collusion.
It’s the same flawed argument conservatives are using to demonise the protests by pointing to the small minority looting and burning.
So you’re saying you DONT admire African Americans because a small number participated in slavery?
Curious, what do you think of whites? Do you admire whites?
When was the last time a black man stormed a church and shot up a bunch of white people?
You've fallen into the white supremacist trap here. Are you going to ignore that majority of domestic abuse and non firearm related crimes are committed by white people?
I don't give a damn about who is committing what crimes, but don't put the blame on black people. Because that's what you're doing, you're separating them from everyone else.
Are those crimes driven by racism or what?
Why is that?

I really admire Native Americans because they never sold their own people into slavery and would rather die than be slaves.

It's only in America where a black man could be elected to the presidency by popular vote then spend the following eight years whining about racism.

Jesus man. Can you possibly miss the point any more?
You judge a nation on how it treats its poor, not its celebrities
