  1. Ibrahimi Qurani says:

    “You can’t hate the roots of the tree without ending up hating the tree. You can’t hate your origin without ending up hating yourself. You can’t hate the land, your motherland, the place that you come from, and we can’t hate Africa without ending up hating ourselves. The Black man in the Western Hemisphere—North America, Central America, South America, and in the Caribbean—is the best example of how one can be made, skillfully, to hate himself that you can find anywhere on this earth.” ―Malcolm X

    That's a clip from my upcoming documentary entitled "Wilmington on Fire", about the 1898 Wilmington Massacre.

    dont talk about it unless yall are going all the way to get it. im like Malcolm, if this is what the black man wants then lets go get it.

    We African Americans are a family and it is time that we begin working toward our own family's interests. The idea that, "Charity begins at home" is not separatism nor selfishness. The neglecting of ourselves and relying on others to provide for us nurtures that negative perception other families have of our community.

  6. In the Eyes of Reason, Reparations, for THEM it would mean admitting and accepting responsibility, that is not going to happened.

    Being a descendant of unjustly enslaved people, what I want is to be treated fairly under the laws and granted the same opportunity that governs all citizens and then, Get Out of My Way.

    (The Horrid Elitist Minority)

  7. In my humble opinion for the Church's penance and retribution to mankind for Its' indiscretions, putting it discreetly, should be to give back to each nation their stolen cultural artifacts and treasures that the Vatican holds, with interest.

    In addition, aiding these nation in setting up the infrastructure to house, to protect and to display for the world to view, boosting their economies and the self-esteem of the people of these nations.

    Them maybe the world could begin to believe that they are true followers of the teachings of Jesus Christ.

  8. you are not an African American you are an Israelite do some bible studying and find out the truth and don't accept no slave name naan

  9. Candy Gloster Your talking the past, I am past that, I am not my grand parente, either.

  10. Candy Gloster What I have noticed is that those who feel that they are of pure blood, no matter what race are less tolerant of diversity.

  11. Candy Gloster WHO ARE THE HEBREW ISRAELITES?

    This biblical interpretation really substantiates the plight of the African American.

  12. what we need to do is follow Gods laws. Breaking them is what got us into slavery in the first place and following the laws of God is whats going to get us out. Its as simple as that

  13. yea you keep believing that to be honest I think excepting that book as gods word is what got us in trouble…the bible is nothing more than a copy of fairy tales told eons ago that book was written centuries after Yaweh death so how could it be straight from the horses mouth…black folks need to let that sh*t go

  14. Tim Williams says:

    shut up stupid. or better yet wake up to history and stop being a slave!!

  15. Deuteronomy 28:68 | Read whole chapter | See verse in context
    And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.

    people ya'll need to wake up!!!! for those of ya'll who think that the bible is a joke look at what Deuteronomy says, is that fake?????? didn't we go into captivity again in ships??? remember we were in slavery in eygpt then God delivered us but this is talking about the slavery that happened again in "egypt" (house of bondage) just ah while ago.

    this is from the same deutoronomy, this is what happened to our people the Israelites ya'll need to read your bibles because it is NOT A JOKE!!!!!

    45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:

    46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.

    47 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;

    48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.

    49 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;

  16. Norvell Martin says:

    If the bible is a bunch of fairy tales, why were the Dead Sea Scrolls, found in 1947, identical to the Old Testament, Messianic Prophecies, and Masoretic text? One of the scrolls called Messianic Apocalypse said "For He will honor the pious upon the throne of His eternal kingdom, release the captives, open the eyes of the blind, lifting up those who are oppressed… For He shall heal the critically wounded, He shall raise the dead, He shall bring good news to the poor"…..hmmmmm doesn't that sound familiar to the New Testament in one of the four gospels? Luke chapter 7:22 says "Then he told John's disciples, "Go back to John and tell him what you have seen and heard–the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life, and the Good News is being preached to the poor." I agree with Candy. People want to front on God thinking the Bible isn't true because they weren't alive at that time. The book of Proverbs is a book of great teaching from one of the most wisest men in the world…but hey, people want to listen to Lil' Wayne and Jay-Z for business advice yet they careless about you, going to jail, having babies with other women, and all they want you to do is buy their albums and people idolize them. But I don't have the right to judge because I'm not God but I'm just telling people to wake up to the truth and live the way you were made to be and not what the world wants you to be.

  17. Danny Graves says:

    Reparation is a joke and unnecessary hand out. It would have been More than necessary to those immediatly affected, i.e the immediate children or grandchildren of slavery, but now it would just be a lazy reason to aquire money. 1530-1780 millions of European christian enslaved by Muslim North Africans. Where is my check?

  18. Mataro Mackall says:

    Can't wait to see it. This small snippet sounds promising

  19. Derrick Edmondson says:

    Which of God's laws did Africans of the 1600s and 1700s and even 1800s break that caused them to be enslaved?? Please tell us.

  22. Derrick Edmondson says:

    You should get one also, then. From the Muslim North Africans.

  23. Samayoch Abiyah says:

    Ivan Butcher II How are you calling your historic, true and genetic identity "the past" wth? who does that? do white people do that? No, I think the problem here is that you still are ashamed of your black self. You want to fight racism and oppression? reclaim your true identity all the rest you do, except for this, will be pathetic.

  24. Santee Newman says:

    So the Japs got theres & the Indians got there's so throw the brother under tha bus as always black man dont deserve sh…t……..

  25. Y'all read Deuteronomy 28:15-68….those are curses that are out on blacks and Hispanics…oh ya ur Gods chosen people Deut. 7:6

  26. Gabriel Chapman says:

    My father was born in the 1940s. His great-grandmother, who he MET numerous times, passed in the 1950s. She was born a slave in this country and talked to him about how brutal life was. This wasn't that long ago. To call reparations a "joke and unnecessary hand out" shows how ignorant you are to history. It's more than necessary because communities and people are still being affected. Slavery has simply turned into the Prison Industrial complex. Sentencing for crimes are still lopsided. Unemployment is double the average and schools in African American neighborhoods are underfunded on purpose until the same area in gentrified and everything improves. The majority of struggles facing African Americans are because of a system that was designed from the beginning to be unjust.

  27. Lucene D Simon says:

    Haiti is a good example of black people not getting anything. Haiti fought for their freedom from France who were enslaving them and still had to pay France back for their lost. In recent times Haiti leaders have tried to make France pay them back that bill that was unjustly put on them.

  28. Danny Graves says:

    Mark Calland
    Greedy Greedy Greedy, your grandparents maybe should be paid, but you are just being silly. GO make money for something real, be a real man instead of whining about the past. Whine whine whine, how about making a change, hmm. How about taing initiative and prving you can make money on your own instead of whining about your opposition. Real heroes Succeed in the face of impossible odds, no matter what, you are not a real hero.

  29. Derrick Edmondson says:

    Danny Graves African Americans HAVE been succeeding in the face of impossible odds since there were first brought to this land against their will to build this nation on their backs – or haven't you noticed? If it weren't for our slave ancestors SUCCEEDING then none of us would be here now – or don't you think? African Americans continue to succeed in the face of IMPOSSIBLE ODDS to this day. Its an ongoing battle and is difficult. YOU watch too much television. YOU have been brainwashed into thinking that all African Americans are inner city thugs and drug dealers and live in poverty and are lazy and chose to live on the welfare system. That is what the controlled media wants you to think and you have fallen for it.

    I am owed what my slave ancestors worked and broke their backs and were mistreated and humiliated and whipped and died for – and were never paid.
    I am owed for all the wages and payments my free ancestors never got in the late 19the and early 20th century that they did work for and didn't get or weren't allowed to even work for.
    I am owed what my grandparents were denied in wages and and opportunities denied them because they were black.
    I am owed it all because my ancestores earned or were entitled to it and they never got it.

    Greed my ass. That's what you would like for it to be for us. For some maybe it is, but let me tell you, many are like me and more are even way better off than me and don't need a hand out. We need what our ancestors were denied and deprived.

    YOU won;t ever understand that because you've been brainwashed by the same system that oppresses and you believe exactly what they want you believe.

  30. oh please; that happened how long ago?? the jim crow laws just supposedly ceased 50 yrs ago which is reason and not too long before that white folks were actually owning black folks; white people got their reparations when they first came to this country and stole it, i.e. irish and Scottish farmers owning land being funded by the govt in which they make money off of, bet you didn't know that. The fact that our system is STILL fundamentally the system that was birthed by racism and is STILL doing what it can to hold black folks back even though it is BLACK PEOPLE who built this country into what it is today while lazy whites have now benefited from the money their enslaving ancestors made off of African slaves then yes I say GIVE THAT MONEY BACK!

  31. Kali Love says:

    Candy Gloster we're Israelites?!?!? And you're source is the Bible?!?!?!?

  32. Norvell Martin One question how do you know? Were you there? How can you claim one man to be the wisest on earth? Because another wise man said it right? That would be no different from me claiming you're the best trainer on earth right? We both know that couldn't be truth? Usually people say things like I don't have the right to judge, or who am I to judge, after they have judged, never before. How do you know who jay-z cares about. Last time I checked he's willing to go in debt with the sports agency thing just to help mentor young blacks and help them not to go broke. Because other agents aren't doing it. You should know stuff like this being a trainer and all. But hey, I'm not judging you right?

  33. Danny Graves If the grandparents WOULD have gotten paid then they would have passed wealth down in the bloodline, you know, like walmart, hilton etc. So because the grandparents did the work and now they are gone, the family that would have inherited wealth DUE THEM can just piss off? bullshit. In todays America both wealth and debt are passed on. Sure it doesn't mean poor folk stay poor..BUT THEY DAMN SURE START POOR. And your ignorant uneducated ass has the nerve to call people greedy.

  34. Please HUEmans…Put that BIBLE away unless you know it's mythology, astrology, and numerology. Abraham Ram Aries, Moses Taurus Bull, Jesus Fish Pisces. It's astrology! It has hidden codes about your pineal gland or third eye. Let the eye be single. Mythological Jesus said that. It's in the book. Jesus is a representation of the Sun. This is why his head keeps the Sun behind it in photo ops. Lol The Sun is the MOST HIGH, the light, seen coming thru the clouds. OUR problem is we forgot we are the GODS. Says that in the bible too. Jesus quote. Prayer don't do shit. Meditation and making shit happen physically. Sticking together like a village. The GOOD ship Jesus brought you a white God and we've been tripping ever since. Wicked folks rule this world. Until we become the GODS we are and remove them….we will always be SHEEP! White god in Africa…puha. Sheep are dumb and need to be lead. We have three million years of history before he was born by a virgin in animal house. Lol They introduce us disease…and now they have put a mental disease in our heads. Wake up. World War 3 is on the doorstep. Educate and rebuild.

  35. Shek Leone says:

    Candy Gloster stop that nonsense,we are Africans,people like you are just ashamed to be black so you look for something else to call yourself,like egyptian or hebrew.

  36. Danny Graves remove yourself from here,we people claim to hate us but everything we're on you follow us.

  37. the vatican shouldnt represent the church,such a disgraceful history

  38. Valerie Mauzy says:

    Reparations can be simple as being exempt from paying federal, state, n local taxes like foreigners have been allowed to not pay.

  39. Norvell Martin I do not care about the dead sea scrolls, until a Christian can produce proof showing any text written by god himself then your bible is sill bullshit. Funny how no religion has ever met their so called creator, funny how no explanation as to why the bible has been re-written multiple times if its gods message what can man do to it. You need to research understand why the Romans created it and then you will learn why our people were beaten into believing that nonsense. All your bible quotes were not written at the time said line was spoken it was written 300+ years after not one line in your bible is from the same day day or year it was spoken grow up man your to old to still have imaginary friends

  40. Roland Lucas says:

    I think that appealing to the conscience of the White power brokers for reparations is a waste of time. Africans must take care of in house business of making business within the current structural injustice system. We must make a way out of no way as we have always done. Once we become relatively independent of White economics, then we will have something to talk about with regards to reparations. In other words, never in history has those in power conceded a sharing of power to the oppressed without being forced to. Blacks must force the unjust scales to the balanced point. Through collective Black economics, Whites will see it in their best interest to share power.

  41. Mark Calland I agree after Emancipation there are countless cases of injustices supported by this Government, to me that is Restitution.

    In the Eyes of Reason, Reparations, for THEM it would mean admitting and accepting responsibility; that is not going to happen.

    Being a descendant of unjustly enslaved people, what I want is to be treated respectfully under the laws and granted the same opportunity that governs all citizens of the United States.

    As for ancestral lands, We as descendants of slavery should be looking to West Africa from whence We're indigenous. Those nations owe Us a lot more than just Reparation, they owe Us Repatriation for trading Us into bondage.

    Compensation for Our exploitation by American businesses is another issue of Reparation. To me that would mean: scholarships, training, grants, job opportunities, promotions, partnerships, etc., from these corporations, foundations, trust and their heirs.

    Truth Brother.

  44. Thapelo Ankhamen says:

    how do you know the Scrolls are real and not part of Hollywood make believe to continue a fake religion for black people to cling too? they will find something else to keep black on the path of a slave.

  45. Thapelo Ankhamen says:

    And you know what laws are the Creators and which are "god's"? they are two different beings… and Jesus makes three. or still two if you take in the fact that the Pope is God and Jesus. that is why the Pope can absolve your sins… which by the way nobody can explain how that works…

  46. Thapelo Ankhamen says:

    not the Indians… the children of the Indians. the 5 civilized tribes. the mixed. the SAMBO. yes the uncle Toms cabin Sambo. Sambo=indian+afrikan… problem is if your the Indian and your ancestors are out of Afrika… then what are you? that is confusion. a war strategy used by racist to confuse their enemy. Peons wanted to control the Indian population and use their offspring to govern over them. The Turks did the same thing in Afrika. That is why you have all these different types of "black" people. Most of the black people in Americas are the Indian. and unknown to many, the Indian was classified as White at one time. that is why a color code was introduced so the darker you were the closer to the bottom of the social system you became. Racial Integrity Act of 1924. So until blacks redefine themselves as the AB-Original of Americas, then the fake racial group aka nigger aka stateless, landless people, will continue to be mistreated because they do not demand a correction in classification that will tie them to land.

  47. Mark Calland says:

    What's greedy is white ancestry are still living off the wealth of the hard work of the slave, so they passed their wealth down, my ancestors didn't get to pass their wealth down, and I make good enough money my self you should put the bud down

  48. Thapelo Ankhamen says:

    He is a Child of the SUN. an IsRaElite is a High priest of places like On/Ahn or Heliopolis or Pandora aka Pa -NTR- Ra… the House of God Ra or Sun/son of Ra which is the same title as the todays slave childrens god Jesus Son of God… we assume the God of Jesus is the Creator, which the Egyptians never got confused cause they called the creator AMEN not god because god was and still is a limited being….

  49. Danny Graves Funny you whites have survived only because of handouts…your race came to America with tools to find gold but no real supplies (guess your race thought gold was edible). Facing starvation the Indians took pity and fed your ancestors. After becoming friendly whites took their guns and ambushed the N.A and killed them even though they were using bow and arrows (more proof of your cowardly pathetic race) and pretty much nursed them back to health.

    Next instead of working your race used slaves and for the next 400+ plus years collected what we call today welfare you know that thing whites still has the record for most people of all races who collect the most in handouts. Don't forget southern predominantly whites still contribute the least to our economy yet gets back the most in terms of govt. aid. Your race is so lazy that your pathetic race choose to fight rather than get up and work yourself, think about that you people would rather die than work. Remember Paula Deen she told the story of her grandpa committing suicide after the slaves were freed because he no longer had nobody to work in the fields. With no slaves your race knew nothing of doing for yourself and in less than 70 years lost what took 400+ years to get in the crash TWICE.

    Even today your pathetic race when wanting to talk shit about minorities and act big and bad the KKK first calls the police to protect them and makes sure your enemies has to stay across the street. The KKK is the only gang in the world that asks for protection when trying to act tough.

    YOUR RACE IS A JOKE AND HAS NEVER ACCOMPLISHED ANYTHING NO HISTORIAN CENTURIES LATER WILL SPEAK OF WHITES AS ACHIEVING NOTHING WORTHWHILE.

  50. Thapelo Ankhamen says:

    I agree with that except with the word "fair" which means to me by definition: lack of something/ color. which means "white" to me. now if you want fair justice then you want white justice. and white justice is mistreatment of a black person. so you get what you ask for and whites act like that. so say you want Justice not fair justice. don't equate the word fair for anything equitable to compensation. our confusion with words causes much suffering.

  51. Santee Newman says:

    When you study the history of Bunche, his history is different from the history of the black man who just came here from Africa. And if you notice, when Bunche was in Atlanta, Georgia, during the summer NAACP Convention, he was Jim Crowed, he was segregated, he was not allowed to go in a hotel down there. Yet there are Africans who come here, black as night, who can go into those cracker hotels. Well, what is the difference between Bunche and one of them? The difference is Bunche doesn't know his history, and they, the Africans, do know their history. They may come here out of the jungles, but they know their history. They may come here wearing sheets with their heads all wrapped up, but they know their history. You and I can come out of Harvard but we don't know our history. There's a basic difference in why we are treated as we are: one knows his history and one doesn't know his history! The American so-called Negro is a soldier who doesn't know his history; he's a servant who doesn't know his history; he's a graduate of Columbia, or Yale, or Harvard, or Tuskeegee, who doesn't know his history. He's confined, he's limited, he's held under the control and the jurisdiction of the white man who knows more about the history of the Negro than the Negro knows about himself. But when you and I wake up, and learn our history, learn the history of our kind, and the history of the white kind, then the white man will be at a disadvantage and we'll be at an advantage.

  52. Thapelo Ankhamen says:

    The book Deuteronomy was written by who? and when was it widely distributed? and How was it distributed? that last question is very important. Why is "God" concerned about who is a slave? why is slavery important to a Creator? why is it allowed? Now the Bible Egypt or Egyptians were the slave holders but the fact is the Hyksos were the slavers. the Hyksos became the Egyptians(Ptolemy era) because the Real Egyptians left the area (the original Exodus). that is why groups like Zulu, Akon, Dogon have high sciences and ancient cultures that many do not equate to ancient Egypt but are now in areas that they are not indigenous too.

  53. Thapelo Ankhamen says:

    The constitution bill of rights says Indians don't have to pay taxes… now if you were indian…. but because we were classified as black… we fell under the tax. which still is not clear, because black is not business. and only businesses are suppose to pay taxes. a worker is trading their skill for compensation.. a big difference from what taxable income is. but even your tax man cannot explain that simple rule to you on why that is… I say we all classify ourselves as Indians and see what the tax man says.

  54. Thapelo Ankhamen says:

    Peons of Europe were paid to terrorize the Indigenous Americans and run them off the land. or murder them. That is not a handout. it is just compensation. now if you can prove that North Afrikans enslaved Peons, and it was not Turks, then you should be dealing with the POPE on that issue because the POPE was and is the peons King and Master. But I say the peon got his reparations during the Great Land Grab/Theft of 1889 which by the way no black/Indians could be apart of….

  55. Thapelo Ankhamen says:

    give up the cultural hold of Indigenous peoples which led them astray to a white Jesus? right…

  56. Teran Henderson says:

    Danny Graves If you don't believe that we were directly effected by our grandparents being lynched, castrated, belittled, denied education, denied respect, and raped and brutalized, you are a naive piece of shit. Your own people say "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree" and then they turn around and say "why haven't you picked yourself up yet?" Well. Which is it? Are we direct products of the uneducated self-loathing slaves created under the guise of slavery which was REALLY just White Supremacy, or are we all supposed to have cleaned up the act in the last 50 years (which, if you do the math, is not even a whole generation since Civil Rights)?

    Seriously, learn history and THEN come at me. And when you do, make sure you say it with honor from what is REAL.
    Say, "I hate black people and I don't want to be responsible for my parents and grandparents justification of brutalizing Africa's people and land. I don't want to pay for the privilege I got as a birth right for simply being born to systematic racists. I also don't think any white people are responsible for all of the stolen goods, ancient cultural items, precious stones, minerals, supplies, and other natural resources (like water and oil) that they are still TO THIS DAY being stolen from Africa. There is tons of tax payer money sitting in banks (or at least here in CA there is) and there are billions of dollars, more than enough to give reparations and not even sweat, but I don't think I need to take responsibility for the cheap prices I get on products from Wal Mart because white people still to this day are stealing from Africa and other brutalized brown countries".

    Now THAT would be honest. But I guess I can't expect much from you, Danny. Even if you DO reside in Atlanta.

  57. Teran Henderson says:

    Danny Graves Not to mention, how do you justify Jews getting reparations for a quick genocide (and look at Israel now, btw! Got their reparations and turned around to be racist to someone else!), when we suffered a genocide of HUNDREDS of tribes and cultures for TWENTY GENERATIONS, and now everyone is like "It's in the past! It can't have effected you!".
    Please.
    Give me a break. I AM effected. I only know English of all languages, and was only offered other white languages at school ("romantic" ones. Such White Supremacy bullshit. It's "romantic" because we say so.) I don't have the religion of my people, the traditions of my people, the knowledge and stories of my people. I don't have my CULTURE. And whenever African Americans try to make a new culture, white people take it and make it about Capitalism and making money. Giving me reparations is the LEAST white people could do–either that or buy me my ticket back to Africa.

  58. Thapelo Ankhamen says:

    a lot of words just to say… Racist White Supremist will continue to mistreat black people because it is in their nature to…

  61. Thapelo Ankhamen moses!!!! i can't believe your questions loll its so funny how destroyed our people are today. The MOST HIGH chose a people on this planet earth believe it or not and they are called ISRAELITES, slavery is concerning because its a PROPHECY in the bible THAT CAME TO PASSSSS!!!!!! answer this who were those people that got SOLD BY THE AFRICANS AND ARABS TO THE WHITE MAN???? when you do your research and find out who they are you would understand where am coming from bro, because those people that got sold WERE'NT AFRICANS THEY WERE ISRAELITES THAT RAN TO WEST AFRICA WHEN THE GENTILES CAME and killed many of them. once you understand the prophecies and research black people history you would see that we black people have the GREATEST HERITAGE, you would find out that we were CURSED BY GOD thats why we live how we live today we LACK KNOWLEDGE, CHRIST IS BLACK and that WE ARE THE ISRAELITES THE CHOSEN PEOPLE OF GOD WHO NEED TO KEEP GODS LAWS AND COMMANDEMENTS IN ORDER TO ENTER THE KINGDOM THAT IS GONNA BE RIGHT HERE ON EARTH IT IS NOT A FAIRY TALE and thats THE TRUTH believe it or not!!!!!

  62. It's sociopathy, pure and simple. A sociopath NEVER acknowledges the humanity of it's victim or target. The sociopath views the target or the victim as inconsequential and simply a means to an end. The target or victim holds no 'value' separate from his utilization or exploitation by the sociopath. So whites will never feel like we 'lost' anything b/c in their eyes, the ONLY value we have is in the service of their accumulation of wealth & power.

  63. Thapelo Ankhamen I think that's semantics. It doesn't matter what we are 'called' or classified as, b/c who does all the classifying and naming anyway? Us? It's the shared history that is important. Where ever we are in the diaspora, we all are suffering under the same system of global apartheid. That's what's defining. Not a manufactured name or classification that the white man came up with in the first damn place. just my 1/2 a cent.

  64. Candy gloster–you are naive as hell if you think that's what got us here. How are following God's laws going to help when you have an opponent or enemy who isn't hemmed up or also compelled to follow God's laws? Mind you, a "God" he originally got from YOU in the first place. While you are being constrained by moral considerations; your enemy has no such constraints. And to further show you the absurdity of your argument: You are effectively using a play book FORCED on you by your enemy. While Black people are implored to act civil and 'humane', our enemy uses every deceit, every lie, manipulation, trick and brutal means at his disposal. Yet he has brainwashed us into believing it is better to be noble than resist. Well, is it better to be DEAD than to fight back and right wrongs and possibly triumph or at least die trying? Black people, the biggest con the white man has perpetrated against us is he has convinced Goliath that he is David. Role reversals and more importantly, a mindset reversal.

  65. Norvell Martin The bible is based on ancient kemetic astrotheology. It's sun worship. The basic tenets existed in Africa and whites (council of nicea) decided to utilize african mythologies and various versions that had spread around the world by that time, condense them, pervert them and most importantly, WHITEN & LITERALIZE them and force them upon the same people they had taken them from.
    The Christ figure existed way before the bible. Aset/Asar/Heru became Osiris/Isis/Horus who then became trinity: God/Jesus & the Holy Ghost. White society is so patriarchal that they took the woman out of the equation. Typical. But Acharya S. or DM Murdock, along with many before her, have done comparative research on how ALL current world religions can trace their origins to ancient Kemet. But the story of Christ is not literal, it's allegory and it's mythology. It's like thinking that Greek Mythology is real & literal. Zeus didn't walk the earth either. Don't take my word for it. Research this yourself. The info is out there for those who dare to seek the truth and aren't enslaved to a book that was forced on our people by people who historically have acted in way anti-thetical to the teachings in the same book. It is past time, that black people DO look a gift horse in the mouth. They gave you that book to mentally enslave you and your descendants so that chains would no longer be needed.

  66. PREACH. I love it WHEN we know the damn truth that has been hidden for so long. LOVE IT!!

  67. People in the know, know that federal taxes are voluntary. They are not required. Look up the info. There are a few former IRS tax agents that researched the law themselves and came to the conclusion that taxes are voluntary. They even asked their bosses to clarify or confirm if they are compulsory and were not given any response. It's a shake down.

  68. How are we Israelites when Israel isn't a 100 years old? Isis Ra El. That's where they made the word Israel from. Egyptian gods. Isarel has something hidden on that land and it aint biblical. Thats why America funds them. To keep those ancient African spirituality things a secret.

  69. Candy Gloster When you find proof that the bible was written by god and not centuries later by man then changed multiple times I will believe you but until then why don't you wake up and understand why the Romans created the bible. Only an idiot would rationalize slavery as being a punishment from god to us not realizing those who created the bible did so for one of those reason you just claimed make them think its okay.

  70. Curt Pifer says:

    Poor people don't pay income taxes anyway. Look what reparations have done for the Indians: They have rampant poverty, their schools likewise suck and most are drunk and stoned all the time. Yeah, let's give poor people more handouts regardless of dermal tincture. FYI. There are no slaves in America today; every one has the same free will to be a deadbeat loser or a producer in this country.

  71. Teran Henderson says:

    I see a lot of racist bullshit down there, and so I feel like I need to add my 2 cents to people who clearly only think of themselves.

    Let's get facts straight: We suffered a genocide of HUNDREDS of TRIBES and CULTURES (the majority of whom were STOLEN and SWINDLED for any of you saying we sold our own) for TWENTY GENERATIONS, and now everyone is like "It's in the past! It can't have effected you!".
    Please.
    Give me a break. I AM effected. I only know English of all languages, and was only offered other white languages at school ("romantic" ones. Such White Supremacy bullshit. It's "romantic" because we say so.) I don't have the religion of my people, the traditions of my people, the knowledge and stories of my people. I don't have my CULTURE. And whenever African Americans try to make a new culture, white people take it and make it about Capitalism and making money. Giving me reparations is the LEAST white people could do–either that or buy me my ticket back to Africa.

    If you don't believe that we were directly effected by our grandparents being lynched, castrated, belittled, denied education, denied respect, and raped and brutalized, you are a naive piece of shit. Your own people say "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree" and then they turn around and say "why haven't you picked yourself up yet?" Well. Which is it? Are we direct products of the uneducated self-loathing slaves created under the guise of slavery which was REALLY just White Supremacy, or are we all supposed to have cleaned up the act in the last 50 years (which, if you do the math, is not even a whole generation since Civil Rights)?

    Seriously, learn history and THEN come at me with "You don't deserve reparations".
    Say, "I hate black people and I don't want to be responsible for my parents and grandparents justification of brutalizing Africa's people and land. I don't want to pay for the privilege I got as a birth right for simply being born to systematic racists. I also don't think any white people are responsible for all of the stolen goods, ancient cultural items, precious stones, minerals, supplies, and other natural resources (like water and oil) that they are still TO THIS DAY being stolen from Africa. There is tons of tax payer money sitting in banks (or at least here in CA there is) and there are billions of dollars, more than enough to give reparations and not even sweat, but I don't think I need to take responsibility for the cheap prices I get on products from Wal Mart because white people still to this day are stealing from Africa and other brutalized brown countries."

  72. Sheila Thorne says:

    Curt Pifer I wish the later part of your statement were true, you know how many doors dit not get open for my daughter because of the color of her skin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  73. Fentriss O. Moore says:

    Candy Gloster @12 Tribes is allegory. I am an actual human being. With African spirituality predating the bible by TENS of thousands of years, diig deeper when doing your homework.

  74. Fentriss O. Moore says:

    Norvell Martin Listen, you are being too hard on yourself in the last part of your statement and too hard on others your first part. See, Dead Sea Scrolls are really not the issue here, when they were found is! I don't like the idea they were discovered the same year the U.N. Partition Plan was implemented for Palestine, which I you have straight GENOCIDE, in the name of the "lord", going on right now. That's first off.

    Secondly, the bible is younger than anything else I have ever studied when it comes to history, god, and spirituality. I believe that information. All of it is over 2000 years old, when jesus allegedly walked the earth. I don't believe the bible because the bible itself tells me not to believe all of it. You need to really sit down with your New Testament and analyze it. There is just enough fact, to sell weak minded individuals that it is real.

    Lastly, god and jeus ARE NOT the same. In christianity, yes. In the trinity, yes. Now where have I seen this story thousands of years before….that's it, The Book of Osiris.

    Here is some bonus information: jesus isn't coming back, no, let me rephrase that…he already did. Says it right there in the New Testament. Now, what are you waiting on and what is your reason for believing.

    Popular culture should not have even been mentioned in your comment. That is disrespectful to all the other information you mentioned, although it was a bit misguided.

  75. Fentriss O. Moore says:

    Brotha, PREACH!

  76. Fentriss O. Moore says:

    Let's just stop right here. IF God said let us make man in our image, why is he then choosing? Are we not all in his image? You must remember the bible is promoted to have been written by men who were "inspired" by god. HELL, I've been inspired by god and I feel like adding a chapter, but you know what a christian will tell me, that's blasphemy!

    Wake Up! Mix a little bit of fact with a little bit of fiction and a lot of sheep and what do you have: the bible! It's made up. Nothing is a first hand account, nothing is a SECOND hand account, and all of the New Testament is written AT LEAST a century after jesus's death. Now, you mean to tell me that a century later there are accurate accounts of a messiah that I should pray to and ask for salvation, and there are historical discrepancies in our popular culture in the present.

    No logic, straight dogma, and indoctrination will kill your critical thinking skills.

    BTW, we were enslaved in West Africa and the twelve tribes of Israel is allegory. It tells you verbatim right there in the New Testament.

  77. Fentriss O. Moore says:

    Typical answer from someone of European decent who "pretends" not to understand cause and affect.

    Let's use an example we can all relate to. Let's say we are playing Monopoly. The rules state that everyone starts out with 200 dollars and your choice of piece to get around the board.

    Now, let's imagine we begin playing this game in 1492 the year Columbo allegedly discovered America. If you and I are playing, I don't get $200, but we all roll the dice anyway to round the board.

    Let's say each trip around the board is a YEAR. You get $200 every time until 1968 when we were given "full" rights in this country. Mind you, I'm landing on places where I have to pay rent and fees the entire time, I mean, I still have to live life but I'm playin' the hand I was dealt.

    Finally, I ask you for a loan or an interview or a job, and you look me square in my face and say, "Why don't you pull yourself up by your own bootstraps…you just got $200."

    How stupid this scenario sounds to you, is just how stupid Europeans sound to us on why reparations is not a bad idea.

    It's easy to talk smack when you have NEVER been oppressed.

    And we are the real heroes. We were bought, sold, enslaved, raped, tortured, mutilated, bred, and disenfranchised yet we are still here.

    It's hard to be a hero when you have lied, cheated, stolen to get where you are, under the impression you did it on your own merits.

  78. Curt Pifer Yes, make the case that while whites CONTINUE to this day receive BENEFITS from our ancestors 250+ years of FREE LABOR; & then decrying any talk about black people being compensated. Funny, how selective historical amnesia works. That quarter of a millenia of free labor for 10 or more generations allowed the US to lead the industrial revolution. The wealth of 'the west' is primarily due to this free labor so don't talk about slaves and poor people. White skin privilege has allowed ALL whites to benefit even if their ancestors didn't own slaves or came here after slavery was officially abolished. And all workers (unless they claim exempt) pay taxes, EIC, gives a portion of your money back but even poor people are giving money to the feds to fund wars of opportunity and anti-humanity activities that certainly don't benefit them. The system is rotten to the core and this country has NEVER lived up to the sick fantasy of the 'home of the brave, land of the free'. And it never will as long as a tiny criminally insane cartel of bankers who I'd be willing to bet are 99% WHITE; operate from the shadows and believe that the rest of the world was sent here to serve their demented asses.

  79. Fentriss O. Moore says:

    I Love ginger ale Yes it should. It's the lineage. Protestants came last, not first. Embrace it. Everything christian came out of catholocism. Embrace that pedophilia heritage. It's fact, not fiction.

  80. Samayoch Abiyah This is one problem we have as a people always trying to pull each other down disputing over labels. I know exactly who I am, and whence I come. When people meet me they are often curious to my background and religion. They ask if I’m Muslim, Israelite, Rasta, African, West Indian, American…………….etc.

    My usual response is that, I am Human.

  81. Daniel Offerman says:

    Bryon Anderson wrong

  82. Daniel Offerman says:

    why shsould we pay for what our ancestprs did

  83. Valerie Mauzy says:

    President should do this before his time is up. Poor people won't have to worry then. I'm talking about tax paying black people.

  84. Valerie Mauzy says:

    President should do this before his time is up. Poor people won't have to worry then. I'm talking about tax paying black people.

  85. Teran Henderson says:

    Daniel Offerman I am not entirely sure you read everything I wrote above this comment, but I'll bite on the instigation. Let's be real–present day white people still enjoy a lot of benefits from White Supremacy. Including having countries that rule the 3rd world through excessive money shifting in foreign policy. While the USA and Britain are still spending billions on elections in Africa and South America so they can control resources and labor, White Supremacy still exists, and we still deserve reparations. While people that classify themselves as "white" still own the majority of land in Africa (a continent larger than Russia, North America, and Europe, despite what maps portray), then there is still White Supremacy, and

    And last but not least, as I have said, there is PLENTY of money for reparations. My ancestors worked for free for CENTURIES. And they had to give up a language for me to learn, a culture for me, a religion for me, etc, all to do it.

    And NOW I have to sit around and hear how great Columbus and Jefferson and Jackson were, as if they could have done SHIT without black people.

    If you guys are going to keep up a White Washed society (and also complain when people from countries YOUR lifestyle damages (like Mexico/Central America) come over here and say that (somehow) WE are the invaders), then I say, "Ok. You killed enough darkies to put us in our place. Just give me my reparations, so I can leave."

    Thanks.

  86. Teran Henderson says:

    Thapelo Ankhamen Yes! Thank you! People trying to say Egyptians were white and invented everything—now they are finding out that there were other African cultures teaching the Egyptians about mummification, and symbols!

  87. Teran Henderson says:

    Obama will do EVERYTHING for EVERYONE ELSE (gays, immigrants, marijuana, etc) before he so much as THINKS about lifting a finger for us. Keep dreaming–Obama has made it clear which side of him he wants us to see him as. And I sure do see him as a white man.

  88. Teran Henderson says:

    Curt Pifer You are naive if you think there can be millionaires without the extremely impoverished. Somebody has to lose if there is a winner. Never forget that.

  89. Teran Henderson says:

    Fentriss O. Moore I am saving this comment. I think you've finally said it simple enough for white people to understand. They really just don't get what all that free labor and lynching and destroying got them. They aren't even grateful.

    Besides, didn't slaveowners get reparations???

  90. Daniel Offerman says:

    Teran Henderson who defines the reparations. thats why it wont hsppen

  91. Teran Henderson says:

    Not just them! The queen of England still has an arsenal
    of stolen precious items and artifacts, and so many white countries have African artifacts that they keep and make money off in their museums.

  92. Teran Henderson says:

    Bryon Anderson I like your style. I, too, could have written the "brilliant" constitution of the USA if I had a bunch of people to draw my bath, do my work, and rape at will. They are so conceited it's disgusting.

  93. Danny Graves says:

    Derrick Edmondson First off, you know nothing on my views and are making idiotic assumptions based on wishful thinking. Where the Hell did you come up with " You have been brainwashed to think all African Americans are inner city thugs and drug dealers" !?!? Im pretty sure you sir have been brainwashed to believe All white people are uptight racists. And you know what, yes, I was rude and over stepped my boundries, for the idea of free handouts does not sit right with me, But, I really dont know the struggle, I really dont. I personally have struggled, and have been privlaged with nothing, but in the aspect of being black in America, I DO not know.
    But you sir are speaing far from logic, and using hatred and illusion. I do not agree with you.

  94. Danny Graves says:

    Chelsey A. Faulk There was a time for everybody. In history as a whole, White have been used as slaves the most, but as of recently, in this country no, the generations before us have had it easy. SO to you, I will say yes, I was Wrong in my statements.

  95. Danny Graves says:

    Jesse Harrison Bennett I can understand your side, ill lay down my words. Harsh words, but I guess I had it coming.

  96. Danny Graves says:

    Mark Calland First, I owe you an apology, in calling you greedy I spoke without further knowledge. Second I spoke out of envy , for I have had nothing given, no privilage, and still sleep on blankets on a hardwood. My anger gets the best of me. When I see hand outs, I am jealous, Valed points had been made in these retorts, Im still not 100% sold though. SO in that, I will retract my statement.

  97. Danny Graves says:

    Bryon Anderson Bryon, I can say nothing Good to you, you are truley a hateful bigoted asshole living in self delusion. This is not a fucking race war. Dammit you are hateful.

  98. Teran Henderson You honestly feel I should take responsibility for white Folks in the 50's and before, you are an idiot. 1st My Grandparents were not apart of any of this bullshit hatred and racism. We all came the U.S pretty recently from Spain dont even try to say my granparents are at fault. But me, FUCKING really, because I am white you excpect me to personally feel sorry for what other "white" people did. FUCKING really, you are also a bigoted hateful person with. No I dont agree with what hateful people have done, But I will not claim to be involved because of my skin. You are an asshole.

  99. Fentriss O. Moore You are offensive Fentriss, with your asshole EuroPEONs comment. But honestly, You make valid points. Why the fuck not pay reparations. The government is spending shit on shit to supplement fat cats, so yea, I change my mind. I will take back my comment. I agree with reparations. I would love to see the people paid instead of The money hungry system.

  100. I Love ginger ale I dont understand what you are trying to say, But I dont like Ginger ale.

  101. Danny Graves You claim you have nothing to do with White Supremacy, and yet, you "personally" as you are trying to say would NOT be the one paying us reparations! Why would you even care, then, if you no longer classify yourself as white? Why are you arguing against reparations, when your tax dollars aren't here, and are barely a part of the large equation? Why are you here fighting for white rights if you don't feel you are white? You will not be the one paying for anything, therefore. Perhaps you should go tout your opinion on Spanish politics and stop bothering us.

  102. Daniel Offerman First off, White Supremacy deigned slave owners worthy of reparations, as though they deserved anything. White Supremacy attempts to wrongly re-define many things to justify itself, so I'm not sure what you think I'm about to say, but:

    That is why you think it's ok that you guys are still raping countries which became the 3rd world at your hand (yes ALL of you who have and still do reap benefit from White Supremacy), and you think you still don't owe anything, even though White Supremacists began many of the modern day countries, made the laws in many of them, have their banks and corporations entrenched in them. That is why much of Africa still struggles today. You guys are still in there gobbling up and greedy, keeping stolen land and resources, justifying yourself at every turn of the corner.

  103. Teran Henderson How in any way am I fighting for white rights. You're arguement is that because of the color of my skin, I should pay you. Why the hell would tax dollars pay reparations. Its coming from the people to go back to the people, Why not use the other stockpile of revenues the government is using on ridiculous things instead.

  104. Vic Stafford says:

    They must first have a conscience.

  105. Join the movement at http://www.thepetitionsite.com/635/615/457 to petition President Obama and Congress to remove the exception from the 13th Amendment. It's about human rights, human dignity, social equality, and equal opportunity. Sign up and get involved.

  106. Qdown Dale says:

    nobody is going to give us anything, gotta take it. tariq told the story about the japs. at first america wouldnt give them shit. they went back, created sony and came back for theirs but this time from a place of POWER.

  107. Rene' James says:

    You're right Vic absolutely, cause a conscious and their particular kind of complex are totally incompatible realities.

  108. WE were Cursed by god? Who is God? not the AMEN! How can Moses excape Ramassees when the Egyptian Armies was on both sides of the SEA? I was not Cursed because I am not "NAKED" oh and I have done research. I know the Original Name of the KrsT not CHRIST. I know the meanings of those words. I know the Culture of said IsRaElites. and Jerusalem was never the Homeland of My ancestors who are the Children of the SUN. Jerusalem was for the Lepers/Cursed/Yacubs/ Yurugos, not Nubians/Kushites. It was Built by Egyptians/Nubians/Kushites and Protected by said peoples. Jews never had a army that was powerful and respected like Kush. Canon was never Conquered by Joshua! its all allegories!!!!!! There is no Commandments that you can understand because you are not logic based like our ancestors. your lack of knowledge in Nature in your statements tells me that. You equate mans needs with the Creator by this bullshit Contract we all must fall under? Creators Laws are studied every day in Science Classes World Wide and you want us to think its about covenents? Whitey is on the Moon, and you stuck in a book written by whitey… and it says nothing about the moon… yet you trust what it says? Whitey is at the bottom of the seas… nothing about that in the whitey bible….yet you trust what whitey says? Christ is black, yet you use not his correct name? You have NO idea of what a KrsT is!!!! or its relationship to all Indigenous Warriors world wide! Prophecies have come and gone. and nothing said about them in the bible. Weve been in the last days for over a thousand years now… YOU DONT KNOW WHAT THE CREATOR HAS PLANNED! its above your paygrade.

  109. I notice when whites are in control, other whites who want to complain about the whites in control use words like… Government…. Media…. corporations….Liberals… Conservatives… dems… Repubs…. while all the time these whites will vote for that government, use and support that media, and support and defend them corporations thru a thing called RACISM WHITE SUPREMACY. the thing of commonality among all whites.

  110. Thapelo Ankhamen I keep telling trying to tell my people Christianity is not what you think it is. Our people will read the bible written 1700 years ago yet will not believe the same stories written by the the Egyptians Eons ago.

  111. Thapelo Ankhamen easy bruh. That's a broad stroke. It's actually not "all whites". Any time you're about to say "all whites", think about how uneducated it sounds when a white person says "all blacks". I am Italian by nationality. I was born in a low income neighborhood. I was raised poor. 1 of 2 "white" families out of about 75 families. I only know what I learned in school and from my surroundings. The same way "Herman Cain" "Ron Christie" and Michael Steele are a product of their upbringing. They don't want any part of "reparations". They "aren't down" with any part of a struggle. If you ask those "black conservatives", they'll tell you that all is well and you need to apply yourself and stop looking for handouts. Trust me when I tell you not "all whites" are what you think they are, just like not "all blacks" want any part of what we are discussing. There is a color greater than black or white in this world ….GREEN!!!!

  112. People forget that the slave owners were given reparations from the US government

  113. Daniel Offerman Prove it your bible is a copy of folk lore written by the Egyptians even your birth of Christ and resurrection is a hand me down. You probably do not know even Christmas was copied from the pagans. Unless you show me scriptures written by God himself I have the upper hand on calling bullshit on your bible written by man.

  114. Jesse Harrison Bennett Funny… not "all" whites are Racist… but "ALL" Racist are White. So I'll stay in my lane to Suspect ALL whites at practicing Racism White Supremacy until I see Whites in significant numbers making strides to correct mistreatment of black peoples…. and to the "black Conservatives" well we all know that they are also under a System of Racism White Supremacy… thus they just want to be on the winning team, and many are white identified in thought process… until they are mistreated… then REALITY sets in as always. And your only color that matters is GREEN is Bullshit! If that were true, then events like "RED SUMMER of 1919" would not matter, or LAWS like "Racial Integrity Act of 1924" would never have been needed cause Green Money was more important than Eugenic Science and the Theft of Land and Resources. Herman Cain, Ron Christie, Michael Steele, can have their opinions about reparations all they want, YET they will never have that debate with other BLACK EDUCATED people who are based in Historical Racism Study and be able to convince Blacks of that nature that Justice Does not Matter. In Fact, Michael Steele has said that Justice does matter and that was a contradiction. but he clarified himself about how Reparations would be used and distributed, which to me is why would he be worried about someone else when he should be focusing on himself and what compensation he should get for his families mistreatment. But as a White person, who is on the white team, I don't expect you to be apart of that discussion because it would have nothing to do with you because you are not a WHITE person. YOU as an "Italian", just have been given a temporary White Status. not the same thing. but your actions suggest that you have a stake in the game because you are white classified. like I said before, If Mcdonald's mistreated a worker based in color, then McDonald's should foot the bill. YOU are not McDonald's… an Owner, Land Owner, Country Maker, Policy Maker, King, Queen, the Real Shot Callers… But you could be a "worker" and that is the only level you will obtain as a temporary white, and for that position, you will maintain White Supremacy.

  115. Thapelo Ankhamen You're thinking process is somewhat convoluted. How do you explain Ron Christie being educated at Harvard? I'll explain it, MONEY. There is something racists love more than hatred, and that's money. Italy is a part of "Europe" thus my "classification" is technically white by whomever made those classifications. It's also contradictory to say "black conservatives want to be on the winning team" thereby explaining their place or justifying your thought process, but then you continue to say all racists are white. If some of those black folk have zero thinking like you, want nothing to do with what you're saying, and want to be on the winning(opposite) team, then by thought process there has to be their equal and opposite WHITE(by classification or otherwise)person that doesn't want to be "just a worker" so that WHITE person wants nothing to do with ANY WHITE SUPREMACY, RACISM, OR ANY CURRENT SYSTEM THAT WOULD KEEP THAT WHITE PERSON DOWN to just being a "worker". So by your own definition, Herman Cain, is on the "winning team" with his conservative thinking, and I being classified white, am on the losing team by your own definition. So I can't be "for and against" my own team. You think this because you think there are generally only 2 teams. I'm here to tell you that there are more than 2. And I'm also here to tell you that there is something more important than race and that is economic status, and more importantly POLITICAL AFFILIATION. Look at George Zimmerman. He's not technically white by "classification", but the RIGHT WING took him in as 1 of their own and supported him for free. WHY? Because he killed a young black man? Not just that, because supporting him also meant they support their idiotic gun laws. Also because his latino(by classification) father(a judge) and his brother are both STRONG CONSERVATIVES.That's why he was on fox news being supported financially by the RIGHT WING. Becoming more important in this day and time is political affiliation. You don't have to agree, you don't have to like it. BUt you might want to begin to study it. Because somewhere down the line you may have to make a choice. That choice just may be life or death. You may see me standing on 1 side and see someone like Herman Cain standing on the other. And if you make your choice as to which side to stand on SOLELY BASED ON SKIN COLOR YOU WOULD BE MAKING A CRITICAL ERROR. AND BY YOUR OWN DEFINITION THAT WOULD MAKE YOU THE RACIST. You're a smart cat bruh, stop letting a color or classification dictate who you trust.

  116. Jesse Harrison Bennett Confusion is Lethal. that is what I say to "black conservatives" who think they can be white, in a system of Racism White Supremacy. So all you said was summed up into nothing but Confusion caused by Racism White Supremacy. You can mention many more blacks if you want, but until you can prove that one of those blacks controls any 9 areas of people activity on the planet or in the area they live, You have said nothing of substance. and those areas are: Economics, Education, Entertainment, Labor, Law, Politics, Religion, Sex, and War.

  117. In 1915, Atlantic Monthly carried an essay by Du Bois, "The African Roots of the War", which consolidated Du Bois' ideas on capitalism and race. In it, he argued that the scramble for Africa was at the root of World War I. He also anticipated later Communist doctrine, by suggesting that wealthy capitalists (Royals of Europe, light skinned children of Native Americans, Land and resource owners, aka White People) had pacified white workers(Peons of Europe) by giving them just enough wealth to prevent them from revolting, and by threatening them with competition by the lower-cost labor of colored workers (Dark skinned Native Amerikans/Indigenous and Afrikan peoples)…. Racism White Supremacy is the problem. and this evidence like many others are the real reasons for WAR and a constant lack in equitable Justice. So black can be on bottom as a threat to keep Peons in their place.

  118. Danny Graves YOU are not paying me anything! Just because you are White, doesn't mean YOU would pay a cent! YOU wouldn't be directly effected. Why, therefore, do YOU find yourself on the internet, arguing against Black Reparations? Why do you even think this has SHIT to do with YOU?

  119. Teran Henderson You are right, I have found myself in a passionate debate with an unsure opinion. Text lasts, thought continues, i have little reason to be here.

  120. blacks need access to trade their created goods in the world. The Racist White Supremist are active against that. that is why there is no area of people activity that we control, especially RAP MUSIC. Now that should be evident with all the evidence out there of blacks trying to start distribution companies… or even get back into Gambling Casino's which we started in the first place…. we need to destroy Racism White Supremacy and replace it with Justice first.

  121. Jesse Harrison Bennett Jews are classified as WHITE. Jew is not a RACE. the only confusion is who is a Jew. Italians are children of Moors/Celts and Slavics. because of your light skin you have been given a temporary White Status. They teach inaccurate history in schools so we blacks are marginalized by the darkness in color of skin. Also there is Active Racism against Blacks adopting white/Slavic children… so we don't need to bring in something that is not happening on a large scale… and RACISM WHITE SUPREMACY is SUPREME… I should not have to provide proof of that should I? And for the Confusion in the words of Public Enemy on Conditional Setups of Racism White Supremacy… Flavor of Love is all I will submit as proof. Rest my Case.

  122. Thapelo Ankhamen Your case was "all whites are racist", but it's obvious now that the claim has way to many holes in it. Chuck D wrote what I quoted,NOT Flav. You call black conservatives "confused". If I'm for equal rights and fair treatment, and completely against "white supremacy" on any level am I confused because of the "lightness of my skin"? Should I be for it because it would somehow benefit me? Oh wait, simply because of the lightness of my skin and my classification that was GIVEN to me by someone I don't even know, you already assume I am racist(because you said all whites are racist). Like I said bruh, I'm far more of an enemy to them that you will ever be. I'm a traitor to them. I have,based on my own free will and thinking decided that racism in and of itself is ridiculous. To underestimate anyone based on what they look like is uneducated. The way this country is going, Green is the 1st color that matters followed by red or blue. I'll tell you now, john Boehner and Rick Perry would kill to have Ben Carson on their team over me anyday. And Ben Carson wouldn't want anything to do with you or your views. But the last thing I'm going to do is continue to try to convince someone that I don't hate them based on their race. I'm not confused, I'm not a "wannabe", I'm not looking for a "ghetto-pass". I love who I love, I hate greedy rich right-wing extremists who seek to keep the middle class occupied with hating each other while they continue to rob kill and steal making them richer and richer. And I hate them regardless of what color they are. faux news is bullshit and poor people continue to struggle based on todays society. And regardless of race you are either on 1 side or the other of this issue facing this country we currently live in.

  123. Jesse Harrison Bennett If you are benefiting from White Supremacy, as all white people are, you are a White Supremacist. It is the unfortunate truth. Just because you don't like to think about your lifestyle ruining the lives of brown people disproportionately worldwide, doesn't mean it isn't so. It doesn't erase Colonialism, it's thievery, and the countries/laws it created which benefit White Supremacy to this day as it continues its march on. I suggest you read The Code by Neely Fuller as well as The Isis Papers by Dr. Frances Cress Welsing if you are confused as to what White Supremacy and racism are. Don't allow the White Supremacists to define White Supremacy.

    Thank you, and good day.

  124. Teran Henderson My man if you think for 1 damn minute I benefit from "white supremacy" you're just sadly mistaken. I don't get instant discrimination based on my being black or jewish, but as soon as my beliefs are shared, i'll say it again, they hate me more than they hate you!! My knowledge isn't a "formed opinion" based on reading a book. I'm sharing real life experiences here. I am what they call a "race traitor". I can refer you to "the east coast skinheads"(Delaware and Philadelphia chapters specifically). They want to kill me. They don't want to keep me from gaining employment. They don't think I'm less intelligent then they are based on my race. They want me dead because of decisions I've made of my own free will. I'm not on here talking shit about "spiritual wickedness in high places". I'm talking about actual events in my life. You saying I directly benefit from white supremacy based on some book you read is laughable at best. Not everything is the way it's taught at college bruh. Some people actually live the struggles you read about. How many times has someone told you personally they wanted to kill you not because of the color of your skin, but because you won't think and feel the way they think and feel. I have caught enough hell in my life based on actual decisions I'VE CHOSEN TO MAKE. It's fact of life man, some people read about the fight….and some people are in the fight. And sometimes it's easy as hell to see who is who.I don't have any literature to refer you to, but i can refer you to an actual organization of actual "white supremacists" who would be glad to tell you what they think of me and my beliefs. And yes that's my real name and yes that's me in the picture. I'm benefiting from white supremacy..that's a fucking joke…that's the problem with cats today. To busy reading about shit instead of actually being about shit.

  125. Jesse Harrison Bennett I said "If you benefit from it, then you are a White Supremacist."

    If you honestly don't benefit, then I am not sure about your defensive position.

    If you can look inside and recognize benefits you may have, then I am sorry, but you are what you are.

    Finally, if you are a black man attempting to integrate yourself as a white man and play by his rules in the hopes of achieving his idea of success and perhaps even get called the ever elusive "hard working colored", then I am sorry, but you are a White Supremacist. Say what you will, but I will repeat especially that JUST BECAUSE you don't have on a White Hood on your head and Burning Cross in your hands, does NOT mean that you aren't helping White Supremacy on in your own right. If you are not WITH the Black Movement, then you, sir, are detrimental to it, and I say it again you are aiding White Supremacy and are therefore a White Supremacist. If you are living his lifestyle, without a thought in your head to the effects of your Black Community, then that is who you are. If you do not bother to learn the history of both 500 years ago, and 5 days ago, and recognize it for what it is and its effect today, then you are a White Supremacist. I say this to any black person, man or woman, shuckandjiver or intellectual. If you are not fighting White Supremacy, you are aiding it.

    Thapelo Ankhamen but where your off at is it cannot be destroyed WITHOUT a economic power structure. Im feeling the Neely Fuller method your speaking of and for the most part he is right…but even he will tell you that he is not saying everything he speaks of is right and we shoyuld go find out for ourselves. From Dr Claud ANderson to Tariq Nasheed its has been proven through and through that nothing will happen unless we have MONEY an capital to make something happen. The only reason shit like that happens is because collectively black folks will not get on the same page so when someone does do a distribution deal or whatever they are very vulnerable for an attack. That is the only reason why it happens. All black folks need to ban together not sit at home like most did with civil rights and come out when its over. Furhter more you push until your dead, REAL MEN DIE FOR WHAT THEY BELIEVE IN….throughout history most black men dont live by that principle we sit on our asses like women coming up with excuses. If you have a better solution please explain and give us the details

  127. Danny Graves What was in your family history that makes you so defensive…..??

  128. Jesse Harrison Bennett All white people are not White Supremacists BUT all white people BENEFIT from White Supremacy. You are in denial, uneducated, and confused if you do not understand this. If you are not fighting AGAINST the system that has white people TO THIS DAY trying to steal resources in Africa (and often succeeding) then you are WITH WHITE SUPREMACY and you are DEFINITELY BENEFITING FROM IT. If you don't understand this, then you need to re-evaluate.

  129. Pam A Jack says:

    ..If a jewish person stood in that field all day picking cotton this conversation would not be happening. My 3rd &4th grandparents help picked 600 million pounds of cotton and the cotton was sold but the white America kept all the money for them self.

  130. Pam A Jack says:

    Reparation is not free money; today blacks want our grandparents to be paid for their labor. America got the cotton, pay the people their money. Durling the slavery era the white America did not see us as human who should be compensated, so what the problems now.

  131. Lamar Sowell says:

    All interesting comments, but one struck me the most… Candy Gloster- we are NOT Israelites. Proven fact: 40 million years ago was the first migration from the heart of Africa, when the world was still 'together' on what is now known as Pangeae (sorry, spelling MIGHT be wrong); the SECOND migration of humanity then occured AGAIN from Africa which then evolved (devolved?) into the current Diaspora ACROSS THE GLOBE. Once again these are proven facts. We are ALL of African descent. Tell THAT to the racists and 'race-baiters' ,need ammo- white archaeologists and 'intellectual' institutions confirmed thos informations. Logic might dictate that as the people migrated, their environments dictated the tint of their skins, hence moving farther away from the equator, shades of skin and body structures began to evolve to their environment. A digression, I admit, from the main point, but I truly dislike when history is distorted for one's selfish views. Israelites were just a few 'shades' lighter than their African counterparts, the only difference was the advent of civilization did not happen in Israel, but in Africa. Israel, as such, did not exist as aocial OR political construct. The Bible has hints of history and is a good cautionary tale, but CANNOT be taken literally. Jesus was a good dude, and I totally agree with hos tenets, but he was a dude. Sorry Christians.

  132. The Black race should not be subjected to the US Government because we were enslaved during the foundation of this government! Its like a game of Monopoly that blacks were not allowed to play until the whites owned the entire bored! We were not allowed to own land, or businesses. We were greatly denied our inalienable rights as human beings. We were greatly delayed from being able to live out the nightmare which many call "The American Dream". So I say the Black race is grossly overdue for reparations for what we went through and continue to go through in this country! Join us to demand Justice, Equality, and Reparations for our people in this country. http://www.facebook.com/POADIA

  133. Answer me this, Why do many Black people succeed and others don't? Is there a certain type of African American that has suffered more than other? or is it the ones that succeed do not get caught up in this poor me lifestyle. Are some of you going to sit around for the next 50 years waiting for someone to take care of you? Life is a struggle for 90% of us Black or White and the Life styles you see on TV are not reality. In most cases people have worked their asses of to hopefully one day pay their mortgage off. and a lot have done it on wages barely above minium. You think reparation would change anything? Without education that money would be back in the same hands in less than a year!

  134. Reparations for what? Blacks selling their own into slavery to a bunch of Jewish and Arab slave traders?

  135. All the United States has to do is give us one industry entirely owned from implementation to distribution by the descendants of the slaves. That one industry being MARIJUANA (medical and otherwise) – give us that one industry for the same length of time that our ancestors were slaves and let every one of us have equal shares in that corporation. From that one industry we could quickly rebuild our communities, our schools, our own hospitals and our own farms. We could build our own NATION. They gave the Native Americans Casinos – GIVE US MARIJUANA!

  136. White…..it is time to repent, if you die and God happen to be black….it might be too late. Remember the fact that Baby Jesus Christ was hidden amongst black babies in Africa (Egypt ) when King Herod wanted to kill Him….so, very likely He is black too. Don't forget your Trinity !!!!!

  137. The same goes for white people, why do some succeed and others don't? We can't all be Bill Gates, or Oprah.The reperations will do a lot, not enough, but better something then nothing. Its about time white people star paying, for all the wealth they gathered by exploiting black people for centuries. Don't tell us B.S. Our enslaved black ancestors build wealth for white people,

  138. Ruth Van Der Marck Maybe I need to read up on my History or maybe you can tell me, How Did the Slave trade Come about? Did a Ship of White Europeans, Latin Americans, North Americans Sail their ships to Africa and told everyone to get on board to the new promise land? Or was it Africa selling their own people out? Regardless of how horrific Slavery was It was a time in history. take a look at the atrocities through out History, Its hard to believe things like that went on, But we have evolved as people and really can't comprehend that way of thinking. You are a little mislead when you say Slavery built wealth for White America. Slavery Built wealth for a very Small percentage of White America and 99% of Americans have not prospered a cent. Don't be fool by T.V. and movies, thats not reality. Most Americans have what they have from Work, Work, Work. and if they're lucky they might be able to take a couple of weeks off a year to enjoy life alittle.
