Originally posted by IdahoNiner:Heres the thing, Not even the black community can grasp centuries of slavery, lynchings, etc. Not a single one of them were alive then. Not a single one of them have grandparents that were alive then. It only effects black culture because they have allowed it to be a social crutch that is at this point in time and history become a huge burden to the growth of their race and culture.
Why is it acceptable for blacks to hold a century old grudge over something they did not experiance and over something that no one alive took part in? Its a social crutch, and those in power love manipulating that crutch because it keeps the black community exactly where those in power want it.
If its acceptable for blacks to hold onto historical grudges indefinately why not Jews? Why not the irish? Why not anyone for that matter. Go back far enough in history and every single race and culture has been enslaved at one point or another, and generally speaking for a lot longer time span than africans in the west.
Here is the thing about slavery that the black community has failed to grasp. Slavery has never and will never be about race through the history of hummanity. It has always been about those in power exploiting those without power. Blacks have enslaved other blacks, whites have enslaved other whites, arabs have enslaved other arabs, asians have enslaved other asians. Its about power.
I don't have the time or energy to respond. All I will say is your twisted view of history makes me sad. . For my personal health I think it may be nice to lock the thread or at least move it to the parking lt.
