  1. Yes indeed. They taught us to glorify them too. These criminals are under this illusion, because if they look in the mirror and see their true selves, they would not be able to take it, they have to do what they do, and many blacks believe this too.

  2. Can you believe they call us low down dirty criminal animals today, September, 2014? They did this to us all over the WORLD, whites and Arabs, and we stll wear their names, slave names

  3. Your anger on the treatment of your ancestors while understandable is unjust. Humans as property was practiced by virtually all societies and U neglect to add that Caucasians like American & Polish Patriot wrote to Washington on several occasions on the need to end slavery, while Africans themselves sold neighboring tribesmen to Arabs & Dutch traders

    Interesting? Is that all you can say? Ahh,what a blessing to be white in America,privilieged and with benefits.

  6. Dennis Spurling says:

    @celia, well it was a very interesting. What would you have preferred I say in response?

  7. Euphemia Lewis Shelton says:

    …and I've made it my business to ensure that my children NEVER grow up thinking that these subhumans should ever be respected.

  8. @Peter Klymasz – Kings and Leaders were killed for refusing to sell their fellow country man. The Belgian King that massacred 10 000 Africans, The Dutch King and soldiers that decapitated the King of Ghana? You make me sick with your claims. Your ancestors are the evil in the Distraction of African Civilisation. Did you know that we did not have it easy as you put it. Our Ancestors were slaves and today Africa owes the west? What a [email protected] concept of claiming equality. I am a South African and live here been here born here. I speak English, Afrikaans, Latin and most of the 11 Official African languages. People have been here for years still only speak English. And some don't even know what a former township like SOWETO looks like. They say its dangerous. But 5 million people live there and commute to the Sndton's of Johannesburg everyday to work. So better stop getting your racist fart ass involved in our struggle we don't need you to further our cause.
