    I do see a problem with this response, Harley…
    I see the " I am the greatest" attitude and no one else matters…
    AKA – self righteous…
    Not only that, but I suspect that you do not know what it is like to “walk in someones shoes” ……nor do I for that matter….only close, but not the real thing….
    As far as "going forward " goes , we MUST LEARN from the past..
    Many of us have not…..

    how sad that you were teaching those bastard children as one of only 6 whites in a black school.

    The only bastards are the bigoted adults that single out children AS bastards. You can’t hide attitude like that from a child.

    the church said it would not baptize or recognize children born from in-vtiro fertilization. Are they bastard children too? I haven’t heard of any being turned down for baptism by the church.

    Where is the original seller?

    The first man to own a black slave in the US was Anthony Johnson around 1622.

    Oh yeah, Anthony was a black man. Go figure?

    Met some very nice people, one invited me to church. That was Chicago. Detroit was also hospitable, but a white business man tried to hustle me.

    “… like the best way to move forward is to keep dredging up the worse in the past and turning someone into a future victim.”
    .
    Still today, the experience of Black America and White America is very different. Whites don’t get pulled over for DWB (Driving While Black) It happens. Whether you want to admit it to yourself or not. Black person, expensive car, “License and registration please.” Doesn’t mean that black people don’t get pulled over for legitimate reasons. Doesn’t mean that black people don’t sometimes say they were pulled over “For DWB” when the reason was “75 in a 40” but those truths don’t negate the fact that DWB does happen.
    .
    “It’s been rented!” DOES happen!
    .
    On inspection “This car needs breaks, that’ll be $800” Does happen!
    .
    “Ooh look, George move to the other side of the street! Those boys scare me!” Does Happen.
    .
    The sound of car doors locking when the car comes to the stop sign DOES HAPPEN, And the kids playing of hanging out there hear it.
    .
    Their experience is different from your.
    .
    “It was the destruction of the family unit by mommy government by subsidizing bastard children.”
    .
    FAQ! Frequently asked question. Didn’t the Government break up the urban family with welfare?
    .
    First, it was the Racists in the Congress (both parties) that voted to exclude welfare from household where an able bodied man resided. That is what broke up the family, particularly the Black families (One of my closest friend’s mother was charged with welfare fraud because she was collecting welfare – her husband abandoned her and their 5 children- when the aerospace company she had been working for had a boardroom coup and the executive she worked for was ousted, along with everyone on his staff, in the teeth of the mid ’70’s recession. She met a man and he was a good father figure to the family. He had his own place but he spent most of his time at my friend’s house.
    .
    My friend had to face the humility of newspaper coverage of his families’ circumstances. In High School!) Bottom line, I’ve always been sensitive to this particular piece.
    .
    Oh, and BTW, they, as are always the vast majority of welfare recipients, are white. But the racists in Congress weren’t interested in where Jerry Reed’s character in “When You’re Hot, You’re Hot” ( As seen here )
    lived. They were interested in routing those lazy urban dwellers. And they were more interested in making Welfare hard to get in “rural” states, so they could give the applicants for welfare a one way ticket to NYC where we good christian folk would take them.
    .
    You go back a generation or two and you find people that couldn’t break out of the cycle of poverty for love nor money. Go back to 1960’s Southern America and tell me that a black American man had the opportunities he has today.
    .
    And how did he get those opportunities? Certainly not from Mr. Belt Buckle!

    The question that comes to mind is, exactly how many ex-slaves are alive today? Given that slavery ended in 1864, one would need to be at least 149 years old to have even been an infant, newborn, when slavery still existed in America. I suppose there were still slave raids in Africa after that, but they didn’t have a legal market in the U.S..

    There has been a racial divide in our society, kept alive by the apartheid of forced integration, professional racists who provide separatist cultural elements like “Kwanza”, and generational indoctrination, such as that which teaches us that blacks need to have a dumbed down curriculum because they can’t learn white lessons like math, science and English as well as other races.

    If you have never been stopped and questioned for walking in the wrong neighborhood, you probably wouldn’t understand that the color difference of greatest significance is that between light green and dark green.

    I’ve had black, brown, and white work associates and friends for many decades. In high school, the “Mexican” contingent numbered among my friends in a school that was newly built, and about 50-50 mixed. Yep, there was conflict on occasion, but it’s actually WORSE today in that same area.


    As to “DWB” (black or brown), I had a similar “experience” when driving in the south for several years with California license plates, and an U.S. Army bumper sticker. I was getting pulled over constantly on “creatively interpreted” violations. But the strangest might have been in Wickenburg Arizona on my way to ’Nam when I had a black sailor in the car with me, he was hitchhiking in uniform, mine was hanging on a hook in the car. Took two hours to get free of the “county mountie” when his supervisor came along and told him to leave us alone.


    Bigotry remains alive an well in the U.S. either admit it, or “get over it”. The bigots won’t do either.

    @Harleyquinn

    I have posted before that during the Clinton years, people had jobs. Welfare was eliminated, at least at the Federal level. The stock market soared. Crime was down. To me, it felt like racial animosity was starting to decline (your mileage may vary).
    -
    And forget for the moment who gets credit/blame. Those years seem pretty prosperous and relatively peaceful.
    -
    So, it seems to me that the most effective path forward is to create more jobs, so that everyone who wants to work can do so.
    -
    IF this ever came to pass, welfare at the state level could be at least lessened and crime and racial animosity would decline.
    -
    Where jobs come from is a somewhat different issue, maybe for a different thread.
    -
    Whaddya think, Harl?

    threw about wild phrases like “the apartheid of forced integration,


    Ok. That caught my attention. I think I’m a leetle qualified to understand what apartheid was about and I assure it had very little to do with integration.


    It’s like this: break the word up into two:
    “apart” (pronoumced “a-pah-rt”) and “heid” (prounounced “hate”)
    Not how Americans pronounce it: “a-par-t-hide”. Concentrate on the 2nd part: “heid” is pronounced “hate”. And say it like you mean it! : “A-pah-rt- hate”, and breathe in hate and exhale hate.
    Got it?
    Keep races apart and hate each other while claiming(i.e pretending) segregation respects & upholds your culture.

    “It’s harder for a black man to live in Africa than a black man living in America.”


    That, too, got my attention. Please explain what you mean? I interpret it as:


    “You whiny black folks have never had it so good here in good ol’ US of A. If your ancestors hadn’t been picked up and transported across the ocean, you’d be mired in poverty back in Africa. Be glad that your great-grandpappy and great-grandmammy were chosen. It meant a world of privilege for you, you ungrateful n…”


    Did I miss anything?
