While anyone can have their physical freedom taken from them, no one can enslave your mind or spirit without your cooperation.

Stop cooperating.
You're the one making excuses to growl at what Black people are doing.

For us to "get over it" while the Black community is in a disarray is an excuse. It's an excuse to get us to kowtow and play Stepin Fetchit to people like you...much like our ancestors were forced to do so.

If either you or others like you have a problem with Black people discussing our plight in this country, please make your own thread and do all the pissing and moaning to your heart's desire. Because, that's all you're doing anyway. Now unless you'd like to offer a solution not stinking of bias and prejudice, your opinions will hereby be moot.

Which is what 99.99999% of people have done since the dawn of man. In fact, I bet people in 200 years could look at your life and say you just unknowingly went with the flow on a variety of issues.

No way.

Right here and now is the pinnacle of cognitive development and moral reflection within humans and specifically me. If you say otherwise my sense of self-importance is going to take a hit and I won't be able to sleep at night.

Any disarray in the black community is mainly due to the black community.

Get your house in order.

Do you know why most white trash is living in disarray? It's because they make stupid decisions and can't prioritize. They don't need government to step in and fix their problems, they need to step up and change their lives. They need to immulate the Asian culture which places education, family and honor high on their list of priorities.

Quit blaming others for your shortcomings and step up to the plate.

Thank you for describing YOUR character. Don't push it on the rest of us. There were plenty of men who did not hire slaves in the 1700s.

That's just not true. Thousands of farmers, more in the north, grew cash crops and did not resort to slavery.

After multiple posts on this specific factor, I can only come to the conclusion that you approve of slavery. If not, it sure sounds like it.
