Just do what you normally do, abandon this thread and start a new one with the same old b.s.!!!
You should find something more productive to do other than being a troll on an Internet forum.

No they aren't.

White females do not represent over 50% of the U.S. population. Females of all races represent 50.7% of the population, a majority. Non-Hispanic white males and white females combined form a majority of the U.S. population, 64.9% of the population.

Default African racism

Africans enslaved their own kind & sold their own kind into slavery.

What about African racism in Africa?

That never gets recognized. Neither does the ethnic cleansing or the beheading for fun. All we ever hear about Africa from African Americans is how beautiful the Mother Land is.

Yes there is racism and tribalism in Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe. That in no way excuses or exonerates racism in America. It is however a nice way to deflect the subject of racism hear in the United States. Particularly since this nation was founded under the notions of “All men are created equal” and “Liberty and justice for all”.

Actually, you need some education. Go google: Barbary Pirates. Do it now before anything thinks you are an ignorant,self righteous, brainwashed liberal!

Part of the problem is that blacks in this country have always been treated as a monolithic group, while whites have not. White people can trace their lineage back to Germany, England, or wherever, whereas many blacks only have a vague idea of where they came from because their history and culture was deemed "not important" when they were brought here as slaves. It was not recorded or preserved because they were viewed as being less than human. This is why we have "BLACK" pride, and not Ghanian pride, or Guinean pride, but we DO have German/Irish/French/Whatever pride.
