lmao. i like the way he talk. i wish i was in his class
Blacks are still mistreated, on a scale comparable to the times, blacks were held in slavery, and after being held in slavery. I have to disagree with the professor, people do talk about ugly things that happened to them, it is only blacks, that will not, and do not, talk about the ugly things that happened to us. Mainly because they are afraid, and do not know very much about what went on, plain and simple, and don't try to learn what happened to us. Many, not all blacks know we were in slavery, but don't know we were held against our will, and treated worse than animals. (They got to pay us) What do the Jews say? "Never again". Because they will not let the world forget what happened to them, and people are paying reparations, and it appears, will pay them reparations forever, for what happened to them.
Great post black star….. …..I guess we are family…lol don't know about that.
don;t get it twisted: we are not related. we are not family. they are our enemies. what does it take for you to understand that?
I agree with much of what you say but I cannot compare our problems with that of the jews in europe. their problems were between their own people. many say the truth about hitler is not told. with us, it is different. mistreatment by another race of people whose religion teaches them to take their slaves from outside of their own people and whose religion, taught to the slaves, teaches them to obey your master in all things.
Farntella Graham, I don't agree with that, I was being sarcastic. No no no, we are not related.
Right sister! it is very wrong to compare 6 million so called jews holocaust to more than 100 million black people's holocaust…..period
I'm with you sister Lady Farntella Graham….
A major contrast between the Jewish and African Holocaust is familial identity. Jewish victims kept their names and family ties. Chattel slavery did not permit this, thus robbing generations of not only cultural heritage, but kinship. As far as being related to the perpetrators of such savagery, it has been estimated that a minimum 97% of African Americans have at least one Caucasian ancestor due in large part to rape.
Farntella Graham I am just seeing your response, but where in my post did I indicate or said anything comparing blacks suffering to Jews?
Donald Kemonah Where did I compare blacks to Jews. Other than they got reparations we didn't, that is not comparing.
I would not call them ancestors.
Nzingha Shabaka As I appreciate the sentiment, Maya Angelou's words come to mind, "…History, despite it wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again…"
Farntella Graham is that not the religion of Christianity you referring to?
laid down and broken down as it should be.
Nzingha Shabaka My dear Nzingha Shabaka….with all respect…i didn't accuse you of comparing jews holocaust with black people's holocaust….i was fed up with people talking about the jews every minute of the day while the black people's holocaust still contnues in every news of the day……if not in dirty wars in africa….it is dying by thousands trying to cross over to europe or america on ridiculous and unsafe boats organized by the mafia….you know what I'm talking about….and who is responsible of the present plight of the african nations……Peace dear….
