Why do they hate us so?

Debra Brown
Sprindale, OH

My question is based on my belief that though things are better in the US between the races (by ‘races’ I mean Blacks and whites, specifically); there is an underlying animosity from white people, as a group, against Black people, as a group, that persists. I am not referring to individual relationships/interactions. I am referring to the systemic and entrenched racism that is tightly woven into the fabric of the American psyche. I am referring to the racist attitudes that define race relations in the United States. Racism is so insidious here that many times white people don’t even know they are being racist (and more importantly what informs that behavior historically); they are truly confused. Other times it so blatant that you have to accept the racist behavior for what it is. So, whenever a racially motivated incident occurs I don’t ask myself, if it was because the person was Black, I know that. I ask myself: “Why do they hate us so?”.

    I have witnessed this behavior in people of all races at one time or another. We are all more sensitive to other races at times. I try not to blame any entire race for the actions of a few jerks. Living down south I have been offended by many “black” and “white” people over the years, yet I do not believe that they represent a majority.

    I don’t hate any one black person. I’ve even really like a few of them, but I can sometimes dislike them as a group. Or more like, I feel resentful sometimes.
    I dislike that they get special treatment because of slavery. Nobody alive today suffered under slavery. Unless you were a victim of the horrific human trafficking that still happens, albeit rarely. I have Irish ancestors who were slaves, and me an my family don’t cry about it. Anyone asking for reparations really ticks me off. Who is supposed to pay for it? Me? Because I’m white? The English made my ancestors into slaves too. What whites would they figure should pay for it? What about those whites whose ancestors fought for the north in the civil war? How would you tell who people are? Not many had slaves. Only a very miniscule percentage of the population did. Would I get reparations if the blacks do?
    Also there are so many things that the money would be far better spent on. Such as helping the Japanese contain radioactive waste from Fukushima as they can’t handle it on their own. Or education. They education provided in this country is lacking.
    I dislike how they demand recognition/special treatment from everyone everywhere. They seem to want representation that is far greater then what is due for their population’s size in relation to the rest of the country’s population. It wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t shoved down our throats. Now companies that are only in white dominated areas will go out of their way to find blacks for their advertising. So they can be diverse. The same with jobs. They will skip over a white man for a less qualified black man, just so they can so how they don’t discriminate. It’s ridiculous with how far this all gets taken.
    I disliked taking history when the teacher basically told the white students all of our ancestors enslaved all thing blacks, so we have to be sensitive to them. Not my ancestors. Not all blacks here today were descendants of slaves. Guilt for the future generation of whites and unhelpful timidity around blacks.
    I don’t like anybody that blames whites for their problems. There are successful black people. And they didn’t get that way by blaming whites.
    I dislike the culture some of the blacks have. I hate most rap as it is usually demeaning to women while promoting drugs, violence, and stupidity. I dislike the irresponsible parents, and not just blacks, who bring children into this world for welfare, the fathers who abandon their children, and the mothers who abandon their children.
    I don’t like how scared people seem to be of race. You have to tip toe around certain words and stereotypes because the people of today are a bunch of babies. If I see whites start crying over being called a cracker, honkies, glacier niggers, albinos, recessive freaks, ghosts, and so on, I am going to flip out. Hearing about blacks beating whites and Hispanics in revenge for Trayvon Martin is upsetting. The blacks doing such things are only making fools of themselves.
    I also get angry over the double standard I’ve seen from some blacks. If your going to hate a white for being racist, make sure your not racist as well, and realize that blacks can be racist. I really don’t care at all if people are racist. So what? Someone doesn’t like a group of people. boohoo. Unless they’re hurting people. Then, of course, it matters. I just hate the double standard.
    One last thing. How we’re imposed upon. If I want to date only other whites I’m viewed as a bad person. If I want to stay in an all white neighborhood and live with only with other whites I’m a bad person. If I want my kids to marry within their own race I’m a bad person. I think of it as preserving our heritage and culture, living where we are most comfortable. It’s been this way in my family for generations and I won’t change it, even if people want to label me as an evil racist. I don’t see Asians, Natives, and Muslims vilified when they do they same. This has to be my biggest irritation. I don’t have to wish ill on anyone to want keep to my race.
    These are just the things that have me resentful at time. I know that in no way do all blacks do all/are responsible for all of these, or even any one of the issues I have. I don’t hate anyone. Many blacks that I have met have been lovely people.
    I can image that anyone who says they hate black people they may hate them for the things that have irritated me, even though it’s really a broad generalization.

    • fred

      You have received a lot of misinformation and down right lies. yet I think you have a good heart. I only wish I could help you understand how very wrong you are in many of your beliefs.

    • armoniexchange

      Jenna one major thing you are missing here is that even though we (as in blacks) did not live through the times of slavery, it still very much affects us in this day in age. That’s like playing a game of monopoly starting out with 80% of the property and 95% of the money. The point I am trying to make is no matter how you look at it whites have always and will continue to have an unfair advantage. If I saw to it personally that no one in your family could go to school, let alone read or write while I educate and create intricate systems that are specifically designed to keep me and my family wealthy and you poor. thats the quickest sum up I could do

      • Frank Reynolds

        My Irish relatives were slaves in England, and not allowed to go to school. When they came to America, they were drafted into the Union Army literally as they were getting off the boat. My other Irish relatives were debt slaves for the railroads. They were also not allowed to go to schools in America. Instead of complaining, they worked hard and got out of the situation, because they weren’t given handouts.

        • Gia Cruz

          Amen to that. Hats off to your ancestors. Im a second generation pegal immigrant. We also paid our dues and worked hard. Im sick and tired of all this nonsense about white supremacy and people keeping other people down. Such a copout.

          • Ernestine Johnson

            gia cruz your family dont know nothing about what black people in america has been through there wasnt any of your kind around when i was growing up so what are you trying to say amen to that last i heard you people just recently invaded america

        • vince coffey

          shut up you racist! don’t tell black people they have to work hard to succeed in life you horrible person!

            I’ll imply it for him. You negroes are nothing but a chronic, whinning, lazy and useless race of people. End.

          Your relatives were indentured servants – Indentured servitude was a labor system whereby young people paid for their passage to the New World by working for an employer for a certain number of years. It was widely employed in the 18th century in the British colonies in North America and elsewhere. There is a huge difference in slavery and servitude. There is a case you should look up to help you out with you ignorance.. Its the John Punch case.. check that out, it should go into detail of what I’ve listed here. Please research before you go blabbing things you obviously know nothing about, You cannot take from what happened to my people just like I wouldn’t take from what happened to yours.. Why is it that no one does any research and spews out stereotypes, how about reading and talking to elders figure out whats really going on and speak from knowledge and not what you feel. This is what keeps America as a whole dumb.. This quote comes from President Lyndon B Johnson “I’ll tell you what’s at the bottom of it. If you can convince the lowest white man that he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket.Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll even empty his pockets for you”…. hmmm let that simmer on your concious

          • Alan

            OK, so 1000 years from now when blacks are still in the same predicaments(which I know you will be) are you still going to be saying, well it’s because my ancestors were slaves back in the 19th century? That’s why I can’t compete with white people. Why is it that blacks are so insistent on reliving the past. Get over it already! The opportunities are there, take advantage of them and stop feeling sorry for yourselves. Maybe the prisons wouldn’t be so overcrowded with your people if you did. And by the way, you’re going to quote LBJ? One of this countries worst presidents. Who was personally responsible for destroying the Social security system with his so called “Great Society”. Yeah, that worked out well.

          • Khairat Abdulrazzaq

            It is hard to get over something when it is jumping on your back

          • Jim

            Actually, they were slaves. The conditions the irish went through were horrid. They were given the worst jobs because they were essentially free, while Africans cost money. Irish children were “nabbed” and sent to plantations. This is where the term “kidnapping” came from.

          • Borbus

            Armoni – Again, Irish SLAVES were sold in Jamestown as early as 1612, 8 years before any African slaves arrived on the continent. You’ve been watching too many Hollywood movies, thinking all Irish were “indentured servants” like Nicole Kidman in some stupid movie or other.

        • T. Long

          There skin is still white so they were oppressed for 2 minutes

          • Augustus Carter

            Sometimes we blacks speak out of passion and not true knowledge. Frank Reynolds is partially right. And, actually there are descendants of those Irish slaves today still living in the poorest conditions you could ever imagine! They haven’t all climbed out… (You’ll never see that reported on TV often though). 2 minutes? Not really. It’s a shame we learn our history from movies. What would we know if we never watched “Roots”. Research is the key to knowledge. And, downplaying the struggles of other is not a way to progress. We have no excuse for not being educated today. We have no excuse for our self inflicted violence today. Slavery was a harsh past. But, NOW that our situation is a little more comfortable, what is our plan for self improvement? Yes some of us are educated and doing well. But as a whole our society glorifies ignorance and nonsense.

        • Sally Schroer

          Actually what happens is…. The white slave is eventually replaced with Africans. The Irish were hated because of their religion. All they had to do was convert. They also formed gangs and fought back. They were white and could blend in. Africans cannot change the color of their skin.

        • DC

          What I don’t understand about your comment is, the hatred referred to in this discussion is directed at all african americans working an non-working. It’s as if all are the same because of the color of our skin. As for handouts, are you aware that there are more whites receiving govt handouts than blacks? What about the many tax loopholes that are exclusive to the wealthy. So why hate? Does it seem rational to judge an entire race in the way you are judging? Please explain ….

        • Howard Bonds

          Frank Reynolds I’m calling you out!!! 1) Irish people came here as indentured servants…and did get paid..2) THEY KNEW THERE WAS A CIVIL WAR AND CAME ANYWAY.
          3) No white people were denied any education. 4) They were not slaves to England. The Irish Monarchy abdicated the throne to England themselves. 5) They most definitely received handouts! Receiving stolen property and land IS a handout. 6) Just because Europeans CHOSE to treat themselves like that doesn’t set the standard for everyone else! 7) Irish people didnt seem to mind taking adavantage of native americans and other brown people!!

          • Borbus

            Howard, you really sound stupid here. Irish people came because the English were engaged in genocidal tactics to remove them. Starving them, killing them. The Irish diaspora was not out of a desire to travel but a desire to survive. There was no Irish Monarchy that abdicated the throne to England. There were recorded sales of Irish SLAVES, not just indentured servants, in 1612 – that’s 8 years before the first African slaves arrived. “NO IRISH NEED APPLY” signs were everywhere in the 1800s during the great famine. Even George Washington Carver said it was better to be black than Irish at that time in American history. Read some history before you post again on topics you know nothing about.

          • ladyrob4110 .

            Alan, Steel, and Howard is a product of their environment. They’re just speaking from their dinner table discussions.

          • Feli

            Because obviously 90% of you are total history morons here you go! Maybe it’s about time y’all realize that ALL races at some point have been a slave to another. You want to talk some oppression? Look at middle class America as a whole we’re ALL slaves to the min wage. NONE of us can afford to live on our owns anymore without help or TWO full time jobs. Look at the mid west! Unless you are on the deans list or a mega jock (or you know get to play the race card) you’re not getting out of your little Squaller of a town/city and you sure are not going to a “good” college. Live in the mid west and your poor? Pfft please might as well paint METH ADDICT on my hooptie car doors because that’s how most the WORLD views us regardless of skin color. When it come down to ‘the black man’ all I can do is chuckle as they go on and on about things that happened to their ancestors while their totally ignoring what happened less than 75 years ago to the Jews that had been going on since the time of their enslavement by the Egyptians. Want to talk about some oppressed, belittled, loathed, treated like garbage people go talk to a Jew!
            ———————————————————–
            Originally published in 2008:

            They came as slaves; vast human cargo transported on tall British
            ships bound for the Americas. They were shipped by the hundreds of
            thousands and included men, women, and even the youngest of children.

            Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were
            punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human
            property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form
            of punishment. They were burned alive and had their heads placed on
            pikes in the marketplace as a warning to other captives.

            We don’t really need to go through all of the gory details, do
            we? We know all too well the atrocities of the African slave trade.

            But, are we talking about African slavery? King James II and Charles I
            also led a continued effort to enslave the Irish. Britain’s famed
            Oliver Cromwell furthered this practice of dehumanizing one’s next door
            neighbor.

            The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners
            as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish
            political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the
            West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to
            Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of
            Montserrat were Irish slaves.

            Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for
            English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World
            were actually white.

            From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and
            another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from
            about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped
            apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and
            children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless
            population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to
            auction them off as well.

            During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10
            and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West
            Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly
            women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000
            Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest
            bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to
            Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.

            Many people today will avoid calling the Irish slaves what they truly
            were: Slaves. They’ll come up with terms like “Indentured Servants” to
            describe what occurred to the Irish. However, in most cases from the
            17th and 18th centuries, Irish slaves were nothing more than human
            cattle.

            As an example, the African slave trade was just beginning during this
            same period. It is well recorded that African slaves, not tainted with
            the stain of the hated Catholic theology and more expensive to purchase,
            were often treated far better than their Irish counterparts.

            African slaves were very expensive during the late 1600s (50
            Sterling). Irish slaves came cheap (no more than 5 Sterling). If a
            planter whipped or branded or beat an Irish slave to death, it was never
            a crime. A death was a monetary setback, but far cheaper than killing a
            more expensive African. The English masters quickly began breeding the
            Irish women for both their own personal pleasure and for greater profit.
            Children of slaves were themselves slaves, which increased the size of
            the master’s free workforce. Even if an Irish woman somehow obtained her
            freedom, her kids would remain slaves of her master. Thus, Irish moms,
            even with this new found emancipation, would seldom abandon their kids
            and would remain in servitude.

            In time, the English thought of a better way to use these women (in
            many cases, girls as young as 12) to increase their market share: The
            settlers began to breed Irish women and girls with African men to
            produce slaves with a distinct complexion. These new “mulatto” slaves
            brought a higher price than Irish livestock and, likewise, enabled the
            settlers to save money rather than purchase new African slaves. This
            practice of interbreeding Irish females with African men went on for
            several decades and was so widespread that, in 1681, legislation was
            passed “forbidding the practice of mating Irish slave women to African
            slave men for the purpose of producing slaves for sale.” In short, it
            was stopped only because it interfered with the profits of a large slave
            transport company.

            England continued to ship tens of thousands of Irish slaves for more
            than a century. Records state that, after the 1798 Irish Rebellion,
            thousands of Irish slaves were sold to both America and Australia. There
            were horrible abuses of both African and Irish captives. One British
            ship even dumped 1,302 slaves into the Atlantic Ocean so that the crew
            would have plenty of food to eat.

            There is little question that the Irish experienced the horrors of
            slavery as much (if not more in the 17th Century) as the Africans did.
            There is, also, very little question that those brown, tanned faces you
            witness in your travels to the West Indies are very likely a combination
            of African and Irish ancestry. In 1839, Britain finally decided on it’s
            own to end it’s participation in Satan’s highway to hell and stopped
            transporting slaves. While their decision did not stop pirates from
            doing what they desired, the new law slowly concluded THIS chapter of
            nightmarish Irish misery.

            But, if anyone, black or white, believes that slavery was only an African experience, then they’ve got it completely wrong.

            Irish slavery is a subject worth remembering, not erasing from our memories.

            But, where are our public (and PRIVATE) schools???? Where are the history books? Why is it so seldom discussed?

            Do the memories of hundreds of thousands of Irish victims merit more than a mention from an unknown writer?

            Or is their story to be one that their English pirates intended: To
            (unlike the African book) have the Irish story utterly and completely
            disappear as if it never happened.

            None of the Irish victims ever made it back to their homeland to
            describe their ordeal. These are the lost slaves; the ones that time and
            biased history books conveniently forgot.

        No not true at all. Ever since the passing of the civil Rights bill in 1964 by LBJ(one of our worst presidents by the way) blacks have had more of an advantage than whites in terms of employment and the like. The problem is all blacks can do is make excuses and feel a sense of entitlement. Follow a man named Walter Williams. He’s one of the most intelligent black men I know. He doesn’t make excuses for blacks. He’ll tell you that the fact that blacks were at a disadvantage in the past should be more of a motivator for blacks to work harder now. But all you want to do is have self pity for yourselves and feel like you’re owed something for slavery! Even though not one black today lived through slavery. I can tell you for a fact that is one of the reasons your so hated by whites. Most whites believe in working hard for what they have and you all think something should be handed to you.

        • T. Long

          Forget slavery lets start more recent housing after the depression. Now lets go to education. Who pays? Ask mitt romney who pays. But it will take 100 years from this year before things are fair. My parents are good but not when i was in school. I am ok but no vacations, once my mom die i will be 70 my son like 50 his son 25 so my grandson will get insurance money so his family will start off ahead in life. My mom first generation college btw…

          • Alan

            OK, so if in 100 years from now if things still aren’t “equal”, are you still going to be blaming white people? I’ll quote a line from the movie American History X ” Christ, Lincoln freed the slaves over 150 years ago, how long does it take to get your act together? “

          • http://batman-news.com Freida Slaves

            Try this on for size – There’s a race between Whites and Blacks. Now the Whites have been unfairly given a 400 year head start based on some man’s warped idea of privilege. The gun sounds and off they go. The Whites with their incredible lead get to the finish line first. Rather than tap their feet waiting for the Blacks to catch up, they decide to write the story of their extraordinary achievement and share it with the rest of the world. Now, the story lacks some basic and relevant truth, but alas, the winner gets the spoils, right? In the meantime, the Blacks are still running as fast as physically possible, but lagging far behind because for them, the race is long and arduous. They have to jump hurdles, climb mountains, swim oceans, dodge bullets and bombs, just to name a few of the enormous obstacles placed in their path. The Whites on the other hand, had no major hurdles to overcome because they started close to the finish line.

            So Alan maybe this analogy doesn’t work for you, but I do hope the next time you ask that question, you’ll think first about the position of the runners when the race started and put a little love in your heart.

          • Alan

            OK, you give me a timeline. When are blacks going to get it together? Slavery was abolished in 1865, that’s 150 years ago! The Civil Rights Act was passed in 1964, that’s 41 years ago! I swear to God, no race of people love reliving the past like blacks! Furthermore, your argument is one sided. Past “injustices” only explain your argument as far as lagging behind whites in things such as education. How can you relate slavery to the fact that you are a violent race of people? You kill each other every night on the streets of every city where you’re a majority. Half the time not even shooting the intended target, but shooting some innocent child instead. I don’t care what you say, that’s not happening in majority white communities. Now before you even bring up Colombine, Colorado, or Sandy Hook, for every wacko white kid that goes on a shooting spree because he was bullied in school, how many blacks are committing murders across America? Furthermore, I’d like to know more about this “white privilege” that you speak of. I’ve worked hard for everything I have. Same thing with my ancestors. You don’t think they had to endure many a hardships (weather, disease, etc.) to build this once great country?

          • Borbus

            There is no race, there is no finish line. Life is not a race to a finish line. This is the dumbest analogy I have read in a long time.

          • Khairat Abdulrazzaq

            we should get our act together but how can we do that with white policemen shooting us as we walk?

          • Alan

            Come on now, we both know that’s not happening. It’s been proven that many of the stories reported by the media have been false. Case and point, the Michael Brown incident in Ferguson, MS. All these lies that were said that he was shot while his hands were in the air. When the real truth was that Brown went for Officer Wilson’s gun. Which was proven by an investigation that showed Brown’s blood was in Officer Wilson’s car. Even Eric Gardner, who had a lengthy rap sheet, refused to obey officers orders, took a combative stance against them, and was totally insubordinate. Blacks just feel for some reason they can be belligerent with law enforcement and that there shouldn’t be repercussions. That’s not how it works. It’s like I always say, the only people that hate the police are the ones that break the law.

        • Khairat Abdulrazzaq

          I don’t believe it should be handed to us.But coming from a standpoint of what Africans and African Americans have experienced with slavery and imperialism.We have to know where we are coming from and where we are to get to the “promised land”.
          I am African and Nigerian.It hurts to see that our cousins are being mistreated in the country that their ancestors were dragged into and they were born in today.

          • Feli

            Well maybe Africa should not have mistreated them first and SOLD their brothers to the white man, when in fact it was your own people who would hunt down small tribes and sell them off.

  • Tim Dollars

    I am white. I grew up around racists and the things that whites hold against blacks are very silly. I think whites are misinformed and for whatever reason, do not undetstand black culture. I see that life in the inner city is hard. It’s hard for everyone and it’s more difficult to live as a person of color in a crowded urban setting. I don’t feel that black people are inferior to other races but some whites do, I don’t know why, but I bet that most people would change for the better if they understood someone that is not the same as them. I think this applys to race, I wish there was more getting to know others and less racial shooting off at the mouth with no educated history to back it up.how can we come together people? We need to get to know one another and there are issues that need attention, all is not well. There are racial tensions alive today, in 2014, and I myself as a white dude would like to explore the possibility of chang.Why do white ppl hate blacks so? It is a good question, but I want to know how we as highly evolved social beings can get along and work together instead of against each other.

  • melow

    they hate us cause we r better

    • Frank Reynolds

      Racist. Learn to get along with people and stop being immature.

  • Frank Reynolds

    Just so you know, the vast majority of the slaves that built the pyramids were not black, they were from Jewish tribes and villages. By the way, you are extremely racist.

    • Ernestine Johnson

      frank whomever an the hebrews were also black nothing like these converts they have in isreal now they are nothing but white europeans whos ancestors converted to judaism moses was black your white european ancestors twisted our history so much to make it look like they created the first civilisation but the truth will prevail and reveal it self also you whites are the weakest link of black people

      • Ernestine Johnson

        which made white people albinos still to this day being birth in east africa but your ancestors left africa because the heat was to much for their skin samething still happening in east africa today with the albinos getting skin cancer an their resessive eye site your ancestors wandered east towards russsia germany,poland an into other parts of europe in east africa they kill albinos an use them for rituals they left africa your ancestors i mean because the original people shun an didnt want nothing to do with them because they say they always had problems started between the original people so they ran them out of africa

    • Howard Bonds

      Did you get this information out of that stupid book Europeans keep peddling to brown people just before you destroy them? We tried that book. Its BS, and we no longer accept anything in it as fact or valid. BTW the Egyptians wrote and drew detailed descriptions of their work and what the people looked like that did it…No stars of David and no Jews anywhere near the pyramids.

  • obamathefailure

    blacks dont value family and education their race has gone in the downward direction for years only governmernt handouts keep their society intact

    • Alan

      Good reply. Black’s just choose to remain blind to the facts. That’s why these protests in cities like Baltimore just piss me off. They break the law and don’t expect there to be consequences. And let’s face the facts, most of them are just using these incidents with police as an excuse to loot and get something for free because blacks feel like their entitled to it! Even Walter Williams (who’s an intelligent professor at George Mason university and is black) said that thugs like Michael Brown and Eric Garner wouldn’t have been killed if they hadn’t put themselves in the situation and been combative and confrontational with police. Blacks are just a plague to civilized white society, bottom line.

  • obamathefailure

    1. While people of color make up about 30 percent of the United States’ population, they account for 60 percent of those imprisoned. The prison population grew by 700 percent from 1970 to 2005, a rate that is outpacing crime and population rates. The incarceration rates disproportionately impact men of color: 1 in every 15 African American men and 1 in every 36 Hispanic men are incarcerated in comparison to 1 in every 106 white men.

    2. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, one in three black men can expect to go to prison in their lifetime. Individuals of color have a disproportionate number of encounters with law enforcement, indicating that racial profiling continues to be a problem. A report by the Department of Justice found that blacks and Hispanics were approximately three times more likely to be searched during a traffic stop than white motorists. African Americans were twice as likely to be arrested and almost four times as likely to experience the use of force during encounters with the police.

  • obamathefailure

    blacks and hispanics are violent ignorant and dangerous

  • Frank Reynolds

    Are you kidding, the Irish, especially Irish Catholics, were extremely discriminated against, but we climbed out. Same with the Chinese, they were in the same problem as my Irish relatives, but climbed out.

    • Alan

      All blacks think they’re the only ones who have been discriminated against! All ethnicities have experienced discrimination; Polish, Italian, Irish and so on. That’s just their lack of education coming out. Which is another thing they try to blame on discrimination. Even though every black high school in the U.S. spends double the amount of money per student than white schools. Blacks will never equal the academic achievement levels of whites, it’s a proven fact that can’t be told to them because that would be “racist”.

      • T. Long

        So its proven black people are what not capible of learning as much as other races? Did a black person verify thise findings?

        • Alan

          Well, apparently so. Blacks always lag behind whites in terms of education. It’s a proven fact. And as a white person I’m getting sick and tired of hearing race as the excuse. Like I said before predominantly black schools spend double the amount of tax dollars as white schools per student but they learn at half the rate as white kids. If you don’t believe me search for Walter Williams a black professor at George Mason University. He tells other blacks (in more intelligent wording) to get off their backsides stop waiting for a handout, stop making excuses and further more stop blaming white people for your failures in life.

          • T. Long

            You go to school hungry and tell me what you learned.

          • Alan

            Let me tell you, if you think I was some rich kid from the suburbs, WRONG! I grew up in Gary, IN in the 90’s when it was the murder capital of the world. We lived off government cheese and other Salvation army handouts. I still did what I had to do got my education and got out. I never made excuses.

          • T. Long

            Lol your white…it is not what you know its who you know so you poor but your uncle not…leave it alone ALAN that name alone gets you a job interview…oh black people and arabics for that matter should change or names, culture and attitudes. So the majority (whites) can like us because they cant respect us.

      • T. Long

        So you keep quoting a black republican i really don’t car…i have a degree as well and i am still telling you my name and face gets discriminated against

        • mike

          You have a degree? Why cant you spell then? Oh that’s right, affirmative action, pass them even thought they fail….

      • T. Long

        So you quote a racist motivated movie to prove you are not racist? Second i said my family, you still have other black familys without first generation college grads. Plus you just disregard the fact of things left to you like a house or insurance money from a death…black people atill living check to check barely can afford auto insurance so life insurance out of the question for most of us…but anyway i am done you enjoy your ancestors earnings they left it to you

        • Alan

          Whatever you say my man. That’s just why I believe that blacks and whites should have their own parts of this country. We just have totally different agendas, different cultures, beliefs, and directions on what way we feel this country should head. It’s the only way I feel both races will prosper.

          • T. Long

            See thats why you a racist. I am a Veteran i fought in oif 5 and 6. I served the UNITED STATES not the racially divided states. Our differences is what makes the UNITED states so appealing. You should move under a ocean i hear there are no blacks there…..YET

          • Alan

            I don’t know why it’s too late for that to happen. For the most part our neighborhoods are still segregated anyway. Black separatist groups the same as white separatist groups have talked about dividing this country for years. Me personally, I’d be all for it. I just prefer to be amongst my own kind. I went to Australia a few years back where I didn’t see any black people (with the exception of the occasional aboriginie) and I can’t tell you how safe and comfortable I felt there. And I said to myself, I wish America could be like this.

          • Khairat Abdulrazzaq

            Okay,If you are to actually separate the U.S. by race,who would you give what?

        • mike

          That’s funny because I’m white, and work full time and can’t pay my bills on time, no rich family, why is it only blacks think they are the only ones that are poor? I live in a mobile home, don’t use dope, I work hard and pay my bills and try to enjoy the things that I do Have. Only time I complain is when I hear you complaining. Get over it, there are way more poor whites than blacks, I guess that makes me a raysis az crackuh “n” sheeiit. Then so be it!

  • Sincerly Sade D. A

    Honestly, I feel being racist is just stupid! No one can control what was created on earth. They only thing that seperate people are languages, different shades of skin and religion. What is the same is that we all have eyes ears and etc…. Slavery has been going on for centuries and beyond to all races not just blacks. I do feel black people had it worst and when you read or watch movies about slavery whites had the most stupid reason for doing what they did to black people. I am not prejudice. I like that fact that everyone can be unique and have different features. I just wish people would stop being so ignorant. What people fail to realize is that life is to short to be hateful. If the creator wanted it to only be one race then that one race would just have existed. No matter how hard people try to bring blacks down we will not be taken down with out a fight.

  • Nazir

    I’m black and I have a crush on a white girl in middle school. I’m afraid to ask her out, cuz she might reject me just because I’m black.

    P.S. to white people if you know a girl named Mary Hope Pierotti ask if she would go out with a black person.

    • Christopher TheWarangel Haskin

      Just ask her out. Don’t ask do you date black guys. just ask her out. If she mention race, forget her, you have more socially evolved people else where you can talk to dude.

  • Alan

    Well seeing how my last reply to your ignorance wouldn’t get posted because of my use of the n-word,let me rephrase my response. You say blacks create civilizations? Then why is it that cities that are controlled by whites(I.e. Gary,IN Detroit,MI) prosper and then blacks take them over and they turn them into ghettos? Blacks are a majority in Africa correct? And where is the only civilized part of Africa? South Africa, and who controls that, whites. Blacks make up 70% of the prison population, creating a burden on every taxpayer in America. So there you have it, all you do is destroy not create. And by the way if you had any education at all and could read a book you would know that it’s a proven medical fact that the AVERAGE BLACK MAN’S PENIS IS NO BIGGER THAN THE AVERAGE WHITE MAN’S PENIS. End of discussion

    • mike

      Amen my friend, what you said…

    • Howard Bonds

      Its funny coming from a people that either destroyed or attempted to destroy every civilization on this planet. White people have turned the entire planet into one filthy diseased Ghetto. Its in every book white people have ever written. Matter of fact i’m not sure your capable of much else.

  • Christopher Miller

    Black people in the U.S. hate white people so much due to the fear of possibly being forced to return to slavery. By accepting European values, we believe there is a chance that we can become subservient again. Those blacks who do accept white culture and live by it are seen as traitors and uncle toms. Even more, we are taught to be paranoid of whites from a very early age. I know growing up, the idea of slavery terrified me and I was always told that the whites are evil and lie.

    I think one of the solutions to getting rid of this fear is to start teaching children that all races had slaves at some point and some still do, including Africa.

  • Neurotic Knight

    Incompetence and ego and naivete holds black people down, Black countries suck because they are highly religious, as such low scientific education, which in turn puts them at a lower position. Intelligence wise black people can be as smart as others, but due to historical lack of democracy and lack of viable one currently too in many places, along with religiosity is what has kept down. Most asian countries have increase in secularism and atheism and those that have not like pakistan and indonesia are falling. It is the same with africa too. People who believe they are perfect and try to blame others over historic ills will be stuck doing that.

  • Neurotic Knight

    Also arabs held close to 12-18 million slaves and treated them worse than americans ever did, yet no one demands affirmative action by saudi arabia or any of the countries, none of the muslim countries will ever elect a black man into power unlike USA did. No one will even provide you scholarships and they had black slaves even as late as 1960s, yet, many coddle up to them, and run the narrative of evil white west vs blacks. If history shows us, it is that sins of mankind are well sins of mankind, so may be instead of hating up, fight for rights of all. You are discriminated and lied too, id admit, so why do it back.

  • #Donttrustthem

    All I’m going to say is research the Willie Lynch letters and then you’ll see why us blacks nevered had a chance or will have a chance to be equal. You white people say that we are just complaining that racism and that it doesn’t exist. Just the fact that you believe that and say that just confirms that racism is alive and thriving. My advise to my black people is don’t trust whites tolerate them but don’t trust them cause believe me when I say they are doing the same thing.

  • Tom Saltzman

    • Alan

      You got that right my friend. The only way the races will ever prosper and advance is by segregation. Whites & blacks just have totally opposite viewpoints and ideals for the direction of this country. Most whites believe in hard work(not all of course) and earning what they have. Let’s face the facts, many blacks still hold a grudge against this country for slavery and therefore feel that their entitled to something for nothing. Listen to many of these posts and you’ll find so many that hearken back to slavery. Even though slavery was abolished in 1864! I’m sorry, but my opinion will always be that we need separation of the races to survive.

      • xo

        …you’re kind of the reason nonwhites (not just blacks) dislike white people. Your “hard work” has nothing to do with the evil that seeps inside of you

        • Alan

          What you perceive as hate or “evil” I say is love for my race. I’m not going to let people like you lay a white guilt trip on me for things that happened over 100 years ago. My ancestors did what they felt they had to do at the time to make this country what it is today.

          • xo

            You should feel this “guilt” for what you said about segregation. Love your race. Embrace your culture (whatever it is) because there is nothing wrong with that. But hating people that are different is pathetic and ridiculous it’s almost funny. People don’t take racists seriously. people don’t blame you for what you’re ancestors did, at least not me, but they don’t like you specifically (not all whites) because you think the way you do. Segregation? Again really? What are so afraid of that you have to isolate other human beings?

          • Alan

            What white people are “afraid of” are the proven facts about black people. They make up 70% of our prison system in the U.S. They commit a majority (not all) of the violent crime in this country. As opposed to whites who commit most of the white collar crime. You destroy cities that once flourished when white people controlled them and you turn them to ghettos. You act like police are the enemy when they’re the ones keeping your neighborhoods from being war zones. What more examples do you need? And furthermore about police, let me give you this example; blacks claim to be profiled by police. Suppose you owned your own store and you had a customer that comes to your store with a reputation for stealing from you. Now correct me if I’m wrong, but wouldn’t you profile that person every time he came to your store because of his reputation? The same things work with blacks and the police. YOU COMMIT MOST OF THE CRIME SO OF COURSE THE POLICE ARE GOING TO PROFILE YOU AND RIGHTLY SO! And there you have why white people hate you and it has nothing to do with your skin color or how you look. It’s the way so many of you live your lives.

          • xo

            Have I committed crime? Nope. Did I destroy cities and turn them ghetto? I don’t think so I’ve only lived in this country for 12 years and all I do is go to school. I don’t think the police are my enemy, they’ve actually helped and ones I interacted with are nice. But hey you’re probably going to feel the same about me and people that actually did crime. So your argument is invalid..

          • Alan

            What is it that you don’t get? I’m not saying you did it personally but your people did. Are all black people bad? No their not, but a majority are! And for the few good black people I’ve met in my life time, I can do without you overall. I truly believe that this country would be better off without you. I’ve been to other all white countries and I can’t even describe how peaceful it was and how safe I felt even as a foreigner. This includes me walking the streets at night in a foreign country. I certainly couldn’t feel that way walking through black ghettos in America!

          • xo

            Awh poor you! I guess you just have to deal with them. Your ancestors are the ones that brought them here in the first place right? They didn’t want to be here as much you don’t want them here, probably a lot more. But it’s different now. Thankfully there are only a few whites like you so you’ll die out eventually. And there would be peace between the races. Nonetheless, the world won’t forget its history and what the white man did to its people. You’re a very hateful person and this seems personal to you. I hope you find peace within yourself :)

          • Alan

            You’re right, my ancestors did bring you here. BIGGEST MISTAKE THEY EVER COULD HAVE MADE! AND WE’RE STILL PAYING FOR IT TIL THIS DAY! And as far as racist White’s dying off, yeah there’s not as many in this country as there once was, but as long as blacks keep acting like the savages they are we’ll still be around. Remember white racists aren’t born they’re created. When they witness the violence and savagery by your people and get fed up with it! Like the white racist motto says, “If I had known this I would have picked my own cotton!” And yes this seriously is very personal to me.

          • Christopher TheWarangel Haskin

            So Alan is racist and apparently doesn’t know what’s wrong with that?

          • Alan

            Yes I know. IT WAS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE THIS COUNTRY EVER MADE AND WE’RE STILL PAYING FOR IT TIL THIS DAY! And yes even though there aren’t as many racist White’s in this country as there once was, as long as your people keep acting the way they do, they’ll still be around. Remember, racists aren’t born they’re created. When whites get sick and tired of witnessing the terror and violence created by your people. This is very personal to me by the way.

          • xo

            Hhhm maybe not their biggest mistake. This country wouldn’t have all this wealth without their hard work. You shouldn’t be the one talking about terror and violence. “Your people” have been terrorizing people that are not like you for a long time. The Africans, native Americans, the Jews even. The whole world is sick and tired of your crap and now you’re scared of them. Funny. By all means I’m not saying I hate white people. Just racist ones like you. Heck nobody likes them! Haha And why is it so personal? Did a black guy rob you, shoot you, steal your woman? If so, I guess your hatred can somewhat be understandable. But it is very pathetic and sad.

          • Alan

            “Hard work” is what a person does willingly. Not what your forced to do because you have a slavemaster with a whip over you. Because God knows blacks haven’t worked hard since they’ve been free. I should know I’m a foreman with blacks that work for me and there’s not a hard worker in the bunch. And there you go again dredging up the past as always. For your information, I’m not afraid of anybody, white or black. More so blacks because I know that most blacks are only 10% balls and 90% mouth.

    • xo

      They hate you too man lol don’t feel special

  • Nikcole

    I think it all really just started with slavery. Most slaves were poor,dirty and black. It was looked down by whites as some people look down at the homeless, but harsher because they were owned. Some even took their own self hatred and frustrations on their slaves and started hating and harming them instead like some high school bullies. Freedom for slaves came but the thoughts stayed and easily identified to black people because of their skin. Some worried about how they will prosper without a slave,some worried about the revenge the slaves will have and some were simply happy they were free. Those three thoughts were taught throughout generations, either hate them to make yourself feel better, fear them because of what they may do or simply understand they’re human and not really thinking about you. But after decades of these thoughts and actions came the actions and reactions of blacks in three different groups. Hate blacks? Black pride! Were violent/uneducated? Blacks become violent and act uneducated from being told they are constantly are through media or constantly accused for doing violent/uneducated things. See blacks as simply human? Blacks will see you simply human as well.

    We didn’t get our culture from our African countries. We were taken from our African parents and given american slave “parents”. We learned from the people we lived with. Its not black culture, its old/current southern united states culture. Don’t hate America’s slave children because of bad American slave owner parenting.

  • Michael

    Here is the problem with all those who claim that their race were slaves and they got out alright. What race and nation of people lost their identity, language, culture and heritage because of slavery?

    The Irish still have their identity, culture, heritage and language. The Irish people were never discriminated because of the color of their skin, but they were held as indenture servants for owing a debt that needed to be paid off in full. Today no white person can discriminate against them for being white because the racist people themselves are white just like them.

    Every other nation that some of their people went into slavery never lost their land or their heritage, language and Identity.

    The only nation that went into slavery as a nation were the ancient Israelites who just happen to be black people. Read deuteronomy 28:15-68 – it explains why the white people hate black people so much.

    The God of the universe chose these people who look just like him, whom you think are the low scums of the earth. They are God’s special chosen people and he will put them above all other nations upon the face of this earth when the time comes for the last roman empire to finish its rule upon this earth which is the U.S.A and they will acknowledge that these are the children of God.

    Deuteronomy 7:6
    6. “For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.”

    Hosea: 1:10
    10. “Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.”

      I don’t know where they get their logic. It’s insane. Let’s forget the past and look at the present. Anytime you watch any news program(I.e. 60 minutes etc.) and hear about the latest breakthroughs in science, medicine, technology, whatever and they interview the person responsible, it’s a majority of the time someone white. And if not white it’s Asian. The only time a black makes a breakthrough is introducing a new dunk in the slam dunk contest!

  • Michael

    Racism is here to stay! That is because we still live in the Matrix of white supremacy. Get unplug from the matrix of european culture and you will see the real TRUTH on why white people hate black people so much.

    They know who you are, but unfortunately you don’t even know your ancestry and your history which the powers that be are most afraid of; if discovering who you are, they will lose everything and become slaves like you are. My people are destroyed because of lack of knowledge about self and not knowing the Creator who made them in his image and likeness to be a special people.

    When you take a young lion cub from the wild, it first become tame, but when it grows old it remembers its instinct and the one who tame it becomes afraid of the lion he tamed.

    The Lion of Judah has awaken.

    Read Deuteronomy 28:15-68, You will find the answers there to set you free from the Matrix of white supremacy.

    The time will come and now is when 1/3 of us who are blind will be given the gift of sight and those who have eyes 2/3 will be blind and not see. The 1/3 will bring in salvation with the chosen one and the kingdom will be established on earth again as it was done in time past. “For Esau is the end of the world and Jacob is the beginning of it that followeth.” – 2 Esdras 6:9.

    • Alan

      Everybody interprets bible verses to suit them including white supremacists. I’m atheist so the bible means nothing to me. However, when I was younger and did believe the bible, I was taught that the “highly identifiable curse” that God laid upon Cain for killing Able was to blacken his skin so he’d be an outcast wherever he went. Therefore creating the first black man. So in other words blacks were created from evil. This sounds ludicrous to you right? Well that’s how your quoting of the bible to define white supremacy sounds to me.

      • Michael

        Actually the curse place on Cain was leprosy – the first white man in human history. Show me anywhere in the bible where it is a curse to be black?

        Adam and Eve were black people. Want scientific proof? Two White European Couples can never EVER produce a black baby, but two Black Couples can produce a white baby, red baby, yellow baby, brown baby and black baby.

        Which couple have the superior genes? the one that is recessive or the one that is dominant?

        Here is the kicker: I can show you a lot of places in the bible where it is a curse to be white.

        Show me one place for 1 million dollars that it is a curse to be black? Even in Daniel and Revelation it depicted God as being Black – Yeah, I know that this is shocking for white people to know this, that’s why many of them turn into Atheists after they have discovered the truth.

        • Alan

          Whatever you say buddy. If blacks are so superior, where’s the proof? Why are all majority black neighborhoods ghettos? Think of all the usefulness white people could get from the land that your people occupy and destroy.Why have all the greatest inventions throughout history been made by whites? ( Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Alexander Bell, Nicola Tesla) Black people aren’t even competent enough to control Africa, white South Africans do! I don’t know why I even continue to have this argument with you people. All you’re going to do is blame your failures on slavery and racism like you always do. That’s why you let your black “leaders” make fools of you. I.E. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. They keep counting on blacks to keep playing the “were victims of white racism card”. I agree with the one guys post on here. White people are projected to be the minority by the year 2050. When your still stuck in your same rut after all the white people are gone, who will you blame next? That’s even if you’re still around at the rate you’re killing each other. The proof is in the pudding. When I see black ghettos start to turn into vast metropolises with beautiful buildings and homes and contributions being made to our economic climate (instead of leaching from it) and violence ceases, and you produce all these black entrepreneurs from your so-called “black superiority”, then I’ll delete all my negative posts about you and say, ” yes blacks are superior to whites.

            “Why are all majority black neighborhoods ghettos?”

            Answer: Because white racist supremacist design it to be so.

            You should be asking yourself, why majority of white neighborhoods have trailer parks like the circus.

            “Think of all the usefulness white people could get from the land that your people occupy and destroy.Why have all the greatest inventions throughout history been made by whites? ( Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Alexander Bell, Nicola Tesla )”

            Answer: These people have not yet discover their behinds to this very day. Have you ever read your constitution and laws that your racist fathers made up? The law states that if your slave created an invention – that invention belongs to the slave master. It’s the same rule that applies to corporations today. If an employee invented something while employed by that corporation that invention belongs to the corporation.

            So everything you say Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Alexander Bell, Nicola Tesla ( which are all slave owners ) invented was because of their slaves invented it for them. Shocking isn’t it?

            Question for you. If white people are not lazy why do they need to steal, kill and enslave the native people to build up a stolen country? Shouldn’t they had been honest and buy the lands and work hard on it so they can be proud of their own work?

            “When I see black ghettos start to turn into vast metropolises with beautiful buildings and homes and contributions being made to our economic climate…”

            Answer: Ever heard of Black Wall Street Tulsa Oklahoma – The wealthiest black community in the United States where blacks were segregated and they build the successful richest community which includes: 21 churches, 21 restaurants, 30 grocery stores and two movie theaters, plus a hospital, a bank, a post office, libraries, schools, law offices, a half-dozen private airplanes and a bus system.

            The White people were so jealous they started a riot and burn down that wealthy community to the ground. That day they flew in airplanes and bomb that community to ashes ( One of thousands of Terrorist Acts done by white people ) because the black people were more successful than they were at that time.

            So how can black people have a beautiful and wealthy community when you racist white people always find ways to destroy it by bringing in Drugs ( CIA with Oliver North ), Guns ( Brought in by the CIA ), Liquor shops, Abortion clinic, Prostitution and every kind of ungodly invention you do to the people of God. You are the children of the Devil.

            Like I said in my last post, I don’t understand why we continue to have the conversation if you’re just going to keep blaming racism for your problems. I know it sounds cliché, but if this country and the viscous white racists have wronged you so badly, why don’t you go back to Africa? And believe it or not that’s not meant to come off as racist. I’m Polish, Russian, and Slovak and if I heard someone of these nationalities bad mouthing America, I would tell them the same thing. And I’m sorry (with a sarcastic laugh in my voice) I refuse to believe that Ford, Edison, Tesla, and Bell stole their inventions from slaves. You gotta come with something better than that bro. Wow, those sure must have been some mighty intellectual slaves to make those inventions considering slaves weren’t even allowed to have books. I’d like to know how they got their hands on the materials to make those inventions. Blacks have been free now for exactly 150 years, where are their inventions now? Anytime I watch Discovery Channel or 60 minutes and their subject is modern breakthroughs and they show the people responsible, it’s never a black person! As a matter of fact I see every race except black! White of course, Asian, Indian, but never black! Furthermore, let’s take this wonderful invention that unfortunately brought us together, Google who’s responsible for the creation of the Internet and enjoy all the White Faces! Not a black one to be found.

          • Michael

            You are still in the dark or plugged up into the Matrix of European lies.

            “…if this country and the viscous white racists have wronged you so badly, why don’t you go back to Africa?”

            Well, you do not understand prophesy. It said in the good book which you do not believe in, that the Most High God Through the black Messiah will gather his people from the North and from the south (that’s America) and from the isles – The Caribbean Islands and afar off – the four conners of the earth. Because our home land is in Israel which is in Africa which is occupied by you white people who stole our identity and lands and called yourselves Israelites to Jews.

            Isaiah 43:6

            6. “”I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ And to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring My sons from afar And My daughters from the ends of the earth,”

            Jeremiah 31:10

            10. “Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.”

            Deuteronomy 32:26

            26. “I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men”

  • xo

    Ever heard of the “scramble for Africa”? Europeans invaded and colonized, used up all of the resources and spit it back out. And finally returned home ditching the mess they have created. Lol I’m not saying I hate white people because I could care less about the color of your skin. But I understand why others feel that way. Europeans have oppressed many nationalities. You want some examples? Okay! Mass genocide of native Americans. Beating the life out of defenseless black people and hanging them. Oh hey the holocaust. Yes we understand you are not the same people but you carry that same mentality. You act like you’re better and crave power. The world saw their weakness in the WW1 & 2 but I won’t get into that. All I’m saying is the world has a very sensitive history, not on only blacks but all people of color. Meaning not only blacks “hate” whites. Europeans did everyone wrong

  • Alan

    I find it funny that due to many of the comments I’ve posted on here I’ve been referred to by black people as “evil”. One went as far as to say I have evil that seeps inside of me. Now let me tell you why I find that funny. That’s coming from a race of people that kill each other every night on the streets of cities like Chicago, Gary, and Detroit. Shooting and not caring who they hit including small children and the elderly trying to relax on their front porch for God’s sake. Now if that’s not evil I don’t know what is! Yet somehow you manage to be angry at police who are just trying to do their jobs. Black people you have serious issues! Don’t get mad at me and call me evil because you can’t handle the truth.

  • Alan

    Since I’ve started posting comments on here I’ve had many a heated discussions(and that’s putting it lightly) with someone who refers to himself as xo. He’s called me an evil racist and said I have evil that “seeps inside me”. And even if my comments are racist, isn’t that what this discussion is about? Why white people hate black people? Yet there’s not one statistic that I’ve posted that’s been untrue and not able to be proven.1.) I said blacks make up close to 70% of the prison population in this country. FACT Look up F.B.I. crime statistics. There are actually more black men in prisons than enrolled in college. It’s expected that 1 in 3 black males will see the inside of a prison in his lifetime. And please don’t even play the race card as an excuse.Also blacks commit a majority of all violent crime as opposed to whites who commit more white collar crime.2.) The average black high school senior is only equivalent to the average white eighth grader. FACT Don’t believe me, research a man named Walter Williams, a George Mason university professor, and yes he’s black if you don’t know him. 3.) Blacks have destroyed once prosperous cities like Gary,Indiana and Detroit,Michigan. FACT This is a simple one, just take a trip there or turn on your evening news to hear about the violence that goes on there. Now I can sit here and type facts about black people until my fingers are sore. And all he can reply with are things that are ancient history! News flash; We’re living in 2015 not 1815! Furthermore, if this guy knew his history he would know his facts are skewed. He tried coming at me with, ” your people stole us out of Africa.” FALSE Many of the black slaves were sold and bartered for by your own people. “Your people slaughtered the Native Americans as soon as they got to America.” FALSE The first settlers landed in an uninhabited area because the Native Americans that had previously lived there were wiped out by disease before the settlers arrived. “You’re people were responsible for the Holocaust” (partially) FALSE Yes Germans were responsible for the Holocaust but it’s a proven fact Jews have exaggerated the true number that really died. It wasn’t the 6 million like the Jews like to claim. Jews have also falsified stories to garner sympathy from people. Stories such as Germans using skin of the Jews to make soap and lampshades. All proven to be Jewish lies. So there you have it, to me its not racist anyway when you’re stating facts. The next time you ask yourselves why do white people hate us? Just read my post and you’ll have your answer.

  • Bdillard

    The thing that we are missing is not all races being discriminated against but why are blacks, or should I be specific and suggest American blacks still discriminated against? I can and will make a suggestion, more like a statement, that is on target with most. We are saying that the white immigrants that came to America pulled themselves up by the bootstraps to took ahold to the wealth system that is America. They were treated as slaves only once they were here, with little to low wages, deplorable places to live, and a trifling diet. As black American we were beaten into submission, striped of everything that we knew, we were torn down and built up to be scared, dependent people who looked at white people as the has, and U.S. . As the have not’s. We were trained over a hundred years to be sub servant. Were trained to know just what they teach us and words like ambition, and pride were shown to us as a dead man’s luxury the world continued to turn to grow while we were being taught not to grow with the world but only with the times the masters allowed us to grow into. Money, trade, communication, travel, ownership was excluded from our DNA. they whipped notions from our minds, yet the world kept turning, and once a sense of freedom came about, they still did not give us the tools to navigate the turning world. We are not there yet but with and without the help of all of our oppressors white and others alike we are coming to a learning curve. We were once rich with what this world suggest is wealth, or and stability. We contributed to this America in so many ways that even though it is not advertised it is still written somewhere, and knowing that we have done it before, many times before we reach for it yet again with the suggestion that we don’t allow anyone to take it from us again. Being united is the problem that we are having. We are European in our ways as if that is civilized for brown people. It is not, natural and our actions and what continues to happen to us is the evidence that we are not going to be given the respect and universal things that we deserve but through more blood, sweat and tears are we gonna have to make sacrifices to have the next or and the coterminous generations better. We have the Internet we can learn what we need on our own. We can create truths and show the world that we are no longer slaves to them or ourselves. I still suggest that outside of North America the discrimination is merely ignorance and not being exposed to the kind of people we are, rather than having media meet them before they actually meet and communicate with a home grown Black American.

  • http://batman-news.com Freida Slaves

    Wasn’t really necessary to end your comment that way, but you are entitled to your opinion. Those sentiments only feed the age-old stereotype about the over-sexed nature of our race.

  • Cheesewhiz

    Some white people hate black people, and some black people hate white people. Some white people say that blacks are less evolved because they never left Africa, where human beings originally evolved, and therefore never went through the more extreme process of natural selection that produced whites and Asians. They allege that this further evolution made whites and Asians more intelligent, less violent, and more family-orientated – while blacks remained unintelligent, violent, and less inclined to monogamy since the warm climate of Africa did not demand intelligence, group cooperation, or a strong family loyalty in order for individuals to survive.

    That sounds devilish and harsh, and it is certainly a pseudo-scientific lie used to justify racism. But not to be outdone, black racists respond that whites are evil mutants who are deficient in melanin, a basic human attribute, and that they are evil to their core.

    The truth is that some people like to hate other people. The end. Black racists are just as despicable as white racists and equally deserve to be crushed. If they cannot grow beyond their racism, then they should leave America.

    Now for some hard truths:

    1. Skin color means nothing and blacks are not persecuted for being black. Want proof? Go to any software company and see how many Indians work there. Most of these Indians are just as dark as any African American. If whites hated anyone with dark skin, then why are they there? If it’s not about skin color, then why do black racists always talk about White vs. Blacks?

    2. Southern slavery is receding into the distant past – along with the Irish potato famine, the Armenian genocide, the Russian-Japanese wars, and a host of other historical tragedies we can do nothing about.

    3. Very few whites in America descend from former slave owners or traders. In fact, the percentage of Americans with Scottish blood of any kind is very, very small. The vast majority of Whites descend from late 19th – 20th century immigrants from Italy, Ireland, Poland, Germany, Sweden, Portugal, Quebec, Greece, or Russia, interspersed and interbred with the New England Yankees who fought to free Blacks in the Civil War. These people had nothing to do with slavery, and had very little interaction with blacks at all. The rhetoric of Black racists targets a broad variety of people who don’t even have a familial connection to slavery, even in the distant past.

    Those are the facts. Black Americans need to accept these truths, reflect on them, and then have a hard conversation among themselves.

    • Alan

      Yes, I’m white and I totally agree with you. The problem is getting blacks to accept it. I’ve posted numerous comments on here stating facts (not opinions) about black people in regards to crime statistics, education, etc. and all they do is fire back with the same old rhetoric about slavery, racism, you know the same old song and dance. I don’t know what more can be done to try and convince them of the truth and the facts.

      • Cheesewhiz

        The sad truth is that black Americans are never going to get anywhere as long as they listen to their “leaders” who just want to profit by selling grievance. The reality is that too many blacks have a toxic culture. But I wonder what blacks are going to do when Indians, Asians, and Latinos displace Whites as the main power-bloc – and blacks remain stuck in their rut. Who or what will they blame then?

        And another question…why is that someone named Sanjeev Arumugam, with chocolate-bar skin and black eyes, with University of Chennai on his resume, can get a $120K job in the United States, and even become a manager over Whites? I thought that if you didn’t have a White name and White social connections, you were stuck in the ghetto.

        WILL SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS?

        • Alan

          I totally agree with you. I’ve been having an argument with a guy who posts his name as xo. He tries telling me that blacks are hated for their skin color and I try telling him that skin color has nothing to do with it. It’s how so many blacks live their lives is why they’re hated. The violence in their communities and such. I also agree with you about the Indians. Look at their skin tone. They’re just as dark if not darker. Tell me how many Indian doctors you see? Tell me how many Indians own businesses?( Dunkin Donuts, Gas Stations, etc.) They come here with the same so-called “handicap” that blacks have been complaining about since the abolition of slavery and they make successes of themselves. I want to ask the blacks on here, do you want some cheese with that whine? Because that’s all they ever seem to do. As a white man, I get sick of hearing it.

          • Michael

            The difference between the black east indians and the so called negroes in America and west indies is that one are the chosen people of God and the other the east indians are the gentile nations like the white man.

            The Hebrew Israelites have been bound by the curse of Deuteronomy 28: 15-68. Read and see why they go through what they go through.

            Yeah, right. Mohammed Ali was preaching the same b.s. with his Nation of Islam garbage in his 1975 Playboy interview. “Allah will destroy the wicked white man and his America and the black man will take what is rightfully his.” How much of that has come to pass? Your too busy destroying each other to worry about us. I always hear this talk from you people that your “Lords” and “Kings”. Lords and Kings of what??? White people allowed you to finally have a black president and look how bad Obama screwed that up! Even his own Democrats can’t stand him. Let me guess though, since he’s half white he’s not considered black right? I know how blacks love excuses. The half white half black thing is only acceptable when it’s in your favor. Like when people say Halley Berry is a pretty black woman even though she gets her looks from her white mother. Same as with Alicia keys. And as far as the day your people (and believe me that’s not the wording I wanted to use) are the “Masters”of me, I know that’ll never happen but if it did, I’ll be grabbing my .45 and blowing my head off! Let me save you the “why wait til then” joke.

            Am I a racist? Yes I am a racist, but let’s forget about that for a moment. You tell me what is racist about stating facts? Because you would still call me one even if I wasn’t just for stating these facts about you.Every statistic that I’ve posted on here are from things I’ve experienced and fact checked. Blacks make up only 13% of America’s population yet they commit almost 60% of America’s murders. Can’t you understand because of those statistics is why white people, especially one’s with children, don’t want to live around you? You keep talking about looking up facts. I’m from the Chicago area. Research all the murders that blacks are committing on the South Side of Chicago. Spike Lee is shooting a movie about it right now called Chiraq. Comparing it to the violence and atrocities that happen in Iraq.Everyday some black child is murdered because of black gang violence. How is this in any way, shape, or form the fault of a white person? How is something , like slavery, that was eradicated 150 years ago still affecting you today? It’s this black blame game that you use on white people that make us despise you.Even if white people handed this entire country over to you right now do you truly believe that your people would make it any better than what it is now? Because your track record does not support that. Your people have ran into the ground, many a thriving cities across America.For every rich, prosperous, majority black community in America, how many black ghettos are there? I’m sure it’s quite a disparity. And seriously, how long are we going to keep reliving the past? It’s done and there’s nothing you can do to change it. I know it’s your people’s motto to say, those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Well, my motto is, those who keep talking about the past are living in the past.

            Once again you’ve missed the point. I’m not saying that white people don’t commit crime. That would be foolish and untrue to say that. However, most crime white people commit are non violent white collar crimes. Nobody’s losing a life because some Wall Street broker embezzles a million bucks. However, I’m not justifying this crime either.And by the way a lot of those types are Jews anyway which white people (and Jews themselves) don’t consider white. Can’t you see the difference between committing a violent crime as opposed to a non-violent one? Wouldn’t you rather deal with the crime in Beverly hills as opposed to the crime in Detroit, Michigan?

    • Howard Bonds

      Here is a hard truth for you! Have you ever though that perhaps its time for Europeans to leave america? and leave Africa? and Australia? and the Carribbean? and Hawaii? Seems like White people HAVE ALOT TO DO WITH SLAVERY!!! Seems to me that White people enjoy alot of benefits from mass murder and slavery!! EUROPE BENEFITED FROM SLAVERY…What about all those slave ships that sent Native Americans to their doom to be slaves in europe? What about king leopold in the Congo or italy in Eritria? What about the slavery of the entire Continent of Africa to Europeans? What about the fact YOU benefit from the mass murder of 100,000,000 Native Americans?

Also, not a single black person alive today had anything to do with building the pyramids or creating civilization. We are all decended from common ancestors. Also, getting skin cancer is not as common as many other forms of cancer, a number of which affect blacks in greater numbers, so that argument of yours is completely moot. And the largest penis I ever saw was on a white man.

    I can end this discussion today because I’m going to give you every black person’s response to every white persons comment right now.
    Why is every black neighborhood a violent run down ghetto?
    Answer: It’s because of white racism.
    Why is the average black 12th graders academic achievement level only equivalent to that of an average white 8th grader?
    Answer: It’s because of white racism.
    Why do blacks only make up 13% of America’s population but commit 60% of its murders?
    Answer: It’s because of white racism.
    Why are 70% of America’s prison population made up of black men?
    Answer: It’s because of white racism.
    Why are there more black men in prison than enrolled in college?
    Answer: It’s because of white racism.
    Why is it that a city can thrive when it’s ran by whites and then blacks take it over and within a few short years it’s ran into the ground?
    Answer: It’s because of white racism.
    Have I made my point yet, or should I continue? That’s all it ever seems blacks are going to do to explain their situation, play the race card and blame everything on racism.

    I do not apologize for being white!! Assuming all white peole are racist is the same as saying all blacks are useless wastes of life. I never looked down on anyone for the color of their skin until I realized how one sided this anti racist stuff is and watching everyone that’s not a white male have everything handed to them that they did not work for and do not deserve.

    • Alan

      YOU ABSOLUTELY SHOULDN’T HAVE TO APOLOGIZE FOR BEING WHITE! Let’s be honest about it, whites made this country what it is. Most major innovations were made by whites; the automobile, the telephone, the lightbulb, etc. The manipulative Jewish controlled media is the reason we’re even having this conversation. The Jews always try to lay a guilt trip on white people. Look what they did to the Indians, look what they did to the blacks, look what they did to us. How long are we going to have to listen to it?How many years has it been since those events took place? Jews just don’t hate whites they hate blacks as well. They would love to see a race war between the two. And you’re absolutely right, there is a double standard when it comes to race. Every time a white celebrity makes a so called “racist” remark just look how they’re crucified by the media.(I.e. Mel Gibson, Paula Deen) However, many black celebrities have made racist comments about whites and you’re lucky to even hear a mention of it.(I.e. Charles Barkley, Dusty Baker, Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama) And yes it’s ridiculous that blacks expect something for nothing. Especially that they want reparations for slavery. What black person alive today was a slave?

  • who cares

    I look at it this way blacks have to see it from all sides. Yes we were slaves and so were other races. But the different is we have to learn to work as a group and help ourselves become better people to live in society. No one can take anything from us. When you can’t take care of yourself and some else has to provide for you, they can control you. This is a true fact when blacks start helping themselves and not take handout you will all see the different in the world. We have to be part of the solution not the problem.

    People racism is a distraction. Created to take our mind off the true objective of our leaders in power. Soon or later people need to realize that the human race is the only race. Everybody that’s not rich, as a people should stand as one. You see it everyday politics passing laws taking away our freedom more and more. Blacks, whites, blues, reds what ever the color don’t fall as fool of modern day society

  • Killian Morrison

    Racism is in a lot of ways like tennis. It doesn’t end because the hate gets bounced back and forth. It’s hard to leave racism behind when your casually walking down the street or at work and an entire family gives you looks of disgust and hate or spew hateful comments because of your race. I try to look past race and I see a human boiling over with contempt and hate. Enough times like that and you start to base your opinion of an entire race based on these terrible encounters and it makes it harder to look past color.

    Oppression wasn’t always about skin color.We have oppressed each other and ourselves.Growing up as a soon to be African woman.I do wonder why do they hate us so?
    I wonder what makes something racist?Is it who it is by or who it is directed at? or is it racist by who decides it is racist?
    Sometimes white people say something is racist to black people when I wasn’t offended in anyway.I think we decide what is racist.What is an insult for one is a compliment for another.
    Until we have properly defined hatred and racism,we cannot even begin to fix the problem.

    • Alan

      I’ll give you examples of what makes us racist: Even though blacks are only 13% of America’s population they commit 60% of the murders. We’re tired of blacks defying police and not expecting there to be consequences. We’re tired of blacks looting and burning down neighborhoods at every opportunity. We’re tired of having to board up our businesses while we wait for a jury decision because we know that if a white cop is found to be justified in using lethal force you’re going to start with the rioting. We’re tired of hearing about slavery. We’re tired of blacks expecting anything because of slavery. We’re tired of your phony leaders like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. We’re tired of blacks trying to lay a white guilt trip on us. We’re tired of the fact that blacks commit the majority of violent crime in this country. Do I really need to go on? Because believe me, I can. So there you have it. That’s just the tip of the iceberg as to why white people are racist and until you civilize yourselves we will continue to be racist.

    “Racism is so insidious here that many times white people don’t even know
    they are being racist (and more importantly what informs that behavior
    historically); they are truly confused.”

    I have encountered this a few times with a black woman I used to work with. I didn’t use the “N” word or put down the black race (or any other race). Initially, I felt really badly. I really couldn’t figure out what I had said/done wrong.

    Now days, I do not feel badly about it. Why? I honestly think she was looking for things to be racist. When you LOOK for things to be racist, they will become racist. I think that is the problem a LOT of black people have against whites.

    I’m a 58 y/o woman, born and raised in Tennessee. I’m a racist. The best I can figure out Debra is that I grew up with parents that hated blacks and considered the majority of them as less than human. When I was in 5th grade, for the first time each classroom had two blacks each. I remember feeling extremely sorry for them because it was so obvious that they were freaked out and frightened to be surrounded by a bunch of white people. I tried very hard to make friends with the black girl but could barely get a response from her; she was extremely shy. Even when I was in high school there were only a handful of blacks. I personally find the physical differences unappealing……..hair, features & speech in particular. and color when very black.
    Blacks who have more white appearances don’t disturb me as much. I don’t like that I think this way and try to overcome it……not so sure that will ever happen. I do try to treat every one with respect regardless of race though. I personally did my very best to raise my children not to be racist. They have formed their own opinions based on their experiences. I see my 6 y/o granddaughter with her bestie who is mixed and I know for sure that racism is learned. Eventually, we’ll all be so mixed maybe it won’t matter any more.
