How so - when many Muslims are white?

What does race have to do with a particular religious persuasion?

Why even mention race when you seem to hold views that you claim?

Ask the OP; he's the one that finds "Muslim" to be analogous to "white" and "black", as evidenced by the initial post.

Why don't we keep in mind that most white Europeans and white Americans have pretty much nothing in common and neither do most black Americans and black persons from other parts of the world?

Also, what ever happened to that forty acres and a mule blacks who fought in the civil war were supposed to get?

You gotta keep a close eye on them damn white people. The biggest brown-nosers and backstabbers on the planet.

Why dont we celebrate the fact that ancestors of white children in America shed blood to officially end slavery?


Because that was a totally unnecessary war and wasted 800,000 American lives. We should be embarrassed by that useless war.

The ancestors of black children also shed blood to end slavery. 180,000 of them in the army and another 19,000 served in the navy. Useless war? I think not but perhaps firing on Ft. Sumter wasn`t the best idea that the slavocracy ever had.

These Whites were slaves for life, long before Blacks ever were.

This slavery was even hereditary. White children born to White slaves were enslaved too.
Were white families torn apart and sold in the slave markets? Just asking.

It was brave Christians who came to the aid of the Jews at the tail end of the holocaust- It was Christians who gave their lives fighting for the rights of human beings every where...It was Christian doctrine that brought about the true enlightenment that freed people from bondage..It was a Christian man - Martin Luther Kings...who reminded white Christians of their duty to be good and not oppress others.

It was not so much "whites" - color had little to do with it- It was those with the Christ like state of mind that brought about progress. People forget that it was the Christian mindset that made America great - it was not the Muslims...During the American revolution there was a war cry "No King but Jesus"- The civil war was a reminder that the empire must be sustained and that a house divided falls...I just wish that bitter blacks would understand- Christians who really understand the doctrine are to be thanked- but they are not.

Celebrating the civil war?

In some states, there are plenty of good old boys still pretending like they're fighting the civil war.
