Nope I am a US citizen,just as you are,you are no better from being born here,I actually had to DO something to be American,you just plopped out.

And this bull about you being more than willing to offend the sensibilities of black folks who fought for this country to their faces is nonsense.
Why should I be quiet?I have every right to feel the way I do,just as you do,I can express my beliefs just as you can.
Freedom can be a ***** sometimes....means you can't force others to do what you want....

You know better. You know your place, and you'll damn sure stay in it too.
Sorry,wrong again.

Let's not pretend that you don't act accordingly, because you most definitely do. Please...like you'll get out of line. LOL...yea, right. Not in a million years.
I have no white guilt,you being black means nothing to me,you haven't suffered because of me,your ancestors didn't either....and even if they did,what do I care,I didn't do it.

Sorry but you being black doesn't mean squat to me...get over it.

47 years`since the Civil Rights Act.

A HUGE number of black people have never experienced segregation(well except voluntary by themselves) or institutionalised racism....but still ***** and moan as if their neighbor was just hung from a tree by the Klan.

What is the basis for your assertion that "Huge numbers of Black people have never experienced segregation or institutional racism"?
