    please. human history is made up of wars, injustice, massacres, slavery, discrimination, racism, sexism, homophobia, religious wars, land wars, etc. and history is written by the victors.
    it sucks that blacks were enslaved, just like it sucks that gays and women were oppressed for thousands of years, or that european colonisers enslaved, tortured and almost wiped out the indigenous populations of latin america, but that's life. it's a bit different with the wars in recent years, say going back to WW2 but even then, if people put even half as much effort into preventing atrocities from happening in the first place, instead of on who is to blame, who should pay, and who deserves compensation after the fact, we'd be much better off.

    well no one would get shit from anyone in my family cuz we're all 4th and 5th (early 1900s) generation poor azz immigrants! none of my anscestors were slave owners! i think thats the case for a lot of americans now a days ain't it???!!! Blacks are more american than most of us! and the natives of this land before them. i like how ppl all up and arms against illegal immigrants forget about the first "americans" did to the "indian" or "savage" as they were called.

    fuck now im getting all heated and shit, i better leave this thread
