    It’s only called “Racist” when Whites do it. Anti-Racist is just a codeword for Anti-White.

      White people shaped our society the way it is. There were going to be consequences and backlashes…

      • c684570

        Yes, White people did turn the USA into a superpower within 200 years. Something not achieved in the 20,000 years prior.

        Backlashes against massive White Guilt, I agree.

          white people did not make usa a superpower alone. it was by untilizing the tremendous leverage allowed on the backs of enforced servitude, essentially two hundred years of unpaid labor. the wealth of this country could not have been created without black labor. the superstructure of our society owes a debt to that labor. the deprivation of the african continent is in direct correlation to what has been stolen from it by non african societies…

          • c684570

            And Whites directed ALL OF THAT.

            Black slavery was rampant all over the world and MOST of all in Africa. If slavery alone created superpowers without good leadership, we would expect Africa to be a current superpower.

            So the conditions you claim to be both necessary and sufficient for success are in fact neither.

          • FransSusan

            That is total propaganda and nonsense. Only a tiny % of whites owned slaves. Furthermore, there were far more people enslaved that just blacks. They’re just the only ones who aren’t intelligent enough to get over it and take responsibility for themselves.

  • Whitey

    I know, whites don’t have the unity other races have in this country. It’s sad :(

  • olblue9

    Maybe…But if you dig a little deeper, I believe the root of the problem is more economics than racial. Greed was the driving force behind slavery in the America’s and all other cases. Cheap labor is the reason for bringing the Irish, Chinese, and Latino’s into the country to begin with. You cannot blame any of these groups for their coming to this fine country. If you like to play the blame game, blame the greed of the people who wanted the cheap labor. Without them, all of the different groups would have stayed in their homelands, and less “white” folks would have been exposed to different cultures. But, without this blend of cultures, we would all be still eating bland English food. Is it really worth it in the long run?

    • Kimberley

      Hey , I love bland English food :) I have a hard time with most of the ‘exotic’ foods. Usually too spicy. lol,, but then I’m all Northern European.

      • c684570

        I wish more women were all Northern European, Kimberley!

  • Hadiya

    And I’m sick of white people who think having ancestors who were systematically kept out of the system for 400 years is easy to get over.

    • olblue9

      Yeah, I can just imagine now, all of those mean “white” folks at their “keep the black folks down” weekly meetings. Great, lots of people feel that they have been wronged by somebody in their past. This forum should be used for constructive solutions to help us all move forward. What can be done to solve the situation?

      • Hadiya

        Relations between people shouldn’t be founded on ignorance, for starters. White people should realize that if prosperity in the US is a race, non-whites started _way_ behind whites and have to run the same amount. But on the other hand, there shouldn’t be widespread demonization of people just because they’re white. The latter is hard to achieve because of history and mutual distrust.

        • olblue9

          I believe that the best way to reduce the tension between all races is through economic reform. All of the media should support business, and racial leaders from both sides to push for an increase in private sector jobs in America. We have wealthy American investors who are glorified throughout the media, after basically moving their manufacturing plants to China in order to exploit a modern form of slave labor. The best way to improve everybody’s chances of achieving the “American Dream” depends on having a good job. Not all of us can live at the top of the heap, a middle wage manufacturing job beats minimum wage service industry jobs or welfare any day.

          • Colince Bolanga

            Yes, because white supremacy doesn’t exist…lol

          • olblue9

            The “hate whitey” solution will only help solve the “white guilt” problem in America. Hate will not solve the underlying problem of poverty.

          • c684570

            I agree, White people do get superior results. Asians and Jews too.

        • c684570

          Actually, non-Whites get far more advantages in post-secondary education, government job quotas, federally-mandated bank loan quotas, and on and on.

      • c684570

        Not to mention, Black people get tons of advantages Whites don’t get in post-secondary education and still perform far worse. Must be the White Man keeping him down somehow. Weird that the results are the same in historically Black schools too.

    • c684570

      Yeah, because that never happened to Russians, Chinese, Polish, and a whole host more. People of color have had 50 years of handouts and still can’t keep up. New Chinese immigrants fresh out of communism perform better than the children of affirmative action Blacks.

      All people suffered. Only some keep making excuses for it.

  • Colince Bolanga

    you mean the world “owes you nothing.” silly white girl…lol

    • c684570

      Anti-White racist. Maybe the New Black Panthers forum would be a better place for you.

  • c684570

    Take your White Guilt and shove it! Treasonous beasts!
