“You’ve earned nothing until you are able to climb down off that pedestal that’s made of human bones and admit that you wouldn’t be where you are if the real hard work hadn’t been borne on the backs of slaves. I freely admit that.”
There’s that “this country was built on the backs of slaves” nonsense again. Oh, please, slavery was in the south. Slavery was an expensive form of labor. Few plantation owners utilized that form. The real work was done by your Average Joe. The south was virtually destroyed by the Civil War. Union troops wanted to punish the traitors and very little survived and any personal wealth was taken.
You want to convince us that the south was rebuilt with slave labor?
“…people that have enjoyed unearned privilege for 400 years…”
What a racist thing to say. Painting an entire race with such a broad brush. I’ll have you know that I was not given anything by society, I have earned everything I have. Just because I am white does not provide me with what I need to live on nor did it get me through school. Nowadays, if you are a member of a minority YOU DO GET PRIVILEGE! It’s wrongly called affirmative action or reverse discrimination and by the government no less.
All these special programs in place, that gives them more opportunity, free money, free food, free just about anything and they still complain!!!
Why do you have so much have for your fellow man, unless they are of a certain race?

Im from the north, I have lived through the “civil rights” era.
Where im from there NEVER was separate ,drinking fountains, rear of the bus riding or any of the grievances the blacks had under the souths DEMOCRAT controlled states.
Im SOOOOOO over this hate whitey and “slavery” CRAP.
Im Irish, my ancestors were forced to migrate because of the British.
we dug the Erie barge canal, built the railroads, dug the mines, for PENNIES……..SO WHAT!
I believe i am blessed to be in this great nation by a quirk of civilizations.
I cant believe blacks dont honestly sit down and privately thank GOD their ancestors SOLD them to the white man, so some day they could partake of the American dream by just being born here.
Just look at some of the sally struthers videos of the african children with flies on their eyes and distended stomachs. This very well could be them if not for slavery…….GET OVER IT!!
Your relatives SOLD YOU, and some of our relatives bought you! WE OWE YOU NOTHING.
YOU OWE US ALL YOU HAVE!!

>>>bulk of the CEOs of Fortune 500 companies are white men and the majorities of their boards are white men. <<<<
So it is a conspiracy?
MAYBE white men are smarter, harder working, more ambitious, better educated.
it has to be racism.
NAME ONE country in the entire world that is successful and not a 3rd world hell hole that has a black majority and a black government.
The white nations of America and Europe have been the dominant and most successful for centuries. The oriental are a very close second.
This is not ment to be racist, but a serious question one which has puzzled me for quite some time.
