Akron Ohio ?????????

I worked with a young white man ( late 20's) who had moved to Minnesota from Akron Ohio.

He spoke about his experiences growing up as a poor white kid in a predominately black neighborhood. ( only 2 white kids in his class)

Everyday at recess time , the black boys would gang up on him and the other white boy and harass and beat them up.

He said the black, female, principal would just smile and say " kids will be kids" when he begged his mother to have a talk about the daily beatings.

He said the happiest day of his life was when his family moved to another poor neighborhood and he went to a different school.

Yup,------Akron Ohio !

Well, I can agree with you about one thing - hatred does beget hatred. And your hatred has deluded you to the extent that you are so blind to believe that Indians were savages and blacks were lucky to get a free trip to America. So, they were lucky to have their land stolen, to be murdered, chained up like animals, beaten and raped.

Sorry, but one would have to be sick and inhuman(e) to actually believe that.

I have been wanting to ask this and I realize that you are going to attack greatly, so attack away but; are there any black people in America that realize how lucky they are that their ancestors got a free trip over here. I think they worked later and paid for that free trip, but most of my ancestors had to pay and live many hardships too in order to be a citizen of the United States of America.

I don't think how we got here is as important as how we are living our lives now. I don't hate anybody. I am not holding anything in our history against anybody and I am not trying to take advantage of anybody. I would not choose to use taxes to steal money from people who worked hard to make it. I am not jealous of those that have more material possessions than I do. We all make choices everyday that determines how we will live our lives.

This racism talk and hatred is just politics and it will do absolutely no good to those that participate in it. Hatred begats hatred.

That was a question. There are no dumb questions. You just don't have an answer. If I were black, I would be thanking my lucky stars that I no longer live in that country where my own people sold me. Now that is where you really want to live.

There are some questions so ignorant that they don't require an answer and yours was one. I guess it was better for those people to be enslaved for 400 years and have to fight tooth and nail for another 150 years to obtain equal status..Just ignorant.

You really viewed all of the Native American population as savages??

How about an extremely resourceful people rich in culture and heritage. A population that preserved the many resources that this continent holds. A population that was able to construct elaborate cities and temples (Ever heard of Tenochtitlan?). A population that taught Europeans many farming techniques and how to live off of the land here.

How dare you call the Native American population savage? Were the wars between France and England, or the Greeks and Persians, or America and Iraq any less savege than their wars? Do you consider the Native Americans inferior to you??

Your comments about African slaves having a free ride to the Americas is equally appalling. Thousands of Africans died on those slave ships. After they reached the country their families were torn apart, many were lynched, whipped, and all were put into labor.

Have other ethnic groups gone through tough situations? Yes. Does that make slavery any less dispicable? No.


To get back on topic, what the boys did to that family was horrible. Does it appear to be a hate crime in my opinion? Yes.

Yeah, I guess you prefer ruling over them.

How about we all live together, or is that too hard for you to fathom?
