What a coincidence!!

This is the 500,000th link and I saw someone say "donkey" in it for the 500,000th time and it was the 500,000th time it wasn't funny.

I can't believe it!

The only thing that makes America unique when it comes to slavery is that we fought a war to end it. America needs to stop feeling guilty about slavery. It's still practiced today by some and was practiced all over the world for thousands of years. Only America founded a nation saying all men were created equal. Let's move on people!

O'Reilly's radio show will be coming on shortly, should be interesting to hear what he has to say. It's not like news report have been wrong before.

No, but we took advantage of and continued the practice. Makes us just as guilty as those who started it.

what the hell is this crap? how are WE guilty? I refuse to accept responsibility for slavery seeing as that I have never contributed to slavery in any way. You want the blame, take it. Dont put that burden on my shoulders without explaining what I did wrong.

So, am I to understand that there is no such thing as a white kid in the inner-city? That white kids don't steal hub caps?

I don't recall Bill O'Reilly saying anything about race in that line, but apparently, plenty of racists here have jumped to that conclusion.

Well Lewis, if you want to "give props" and a teevee show to someone who is a known cocksucking talent, why not give it to Jenna? she's a black belt, a grand master... I mean if your supporting someones ability to gobble hog as a reason to be on teevee.
 
2003-04-15 12:28:20 PM
Well said Vroom. I'm so sick of this crap. People should thank America for ending slavery and founding a country based on individual rights which is why there isn't slavery today. All this collectivism makes me sick. The bottom line is I've never owned slaves and no one in this country has been one.

Anyone ever stop to think that maybe he said that because they are just TEENAGERS? Hell, if there were a group of teens somewhere around me or my car, I'd probably wonder where the fark they are as well...

I see where people are coming from, but this doesn't even seem close to what Lott said, and I still gave him the benefit of the doubt and assumed he said it because he was a dumbass who shouldn't think of things to say off the top of his head (or think for himself...to be honest).

Emperor-Jay

See my big post above. Be rational when you talk about "obligations to the black community". Try to treat blacks as equals without treating whites as inferiors.

Did I say something irrational? Please point it out for me.

Do we have to create a world where the blackman and only the blackman is in power? And must we reduce the whiteman to being their servants?

Yeah emperor, don't let the black man get you down. You sound horribly oppressed. I don't think we need to hand over our stuff - I don't believe reparations for slavery are appropriate - but I do believe that there is a disparity in opportunity.

I'd be for reperations if it meant al sharpton and jesse jackson would disappear. The only problem for them is after reperations you still have to produce. I'm sure they will figure out some way to make everyone a victim.
 
2003-04-15 12:32:56 PM
This has to be roughly the 5th dumbest post I've seen on FARK. What kind of farked up logic makes you think our slave-driving ancestors were doing blacks a favor by bringing them over as slave labor?

Would you do me a favor and READ THE FVCKING POST? It was in reference to a comment about modern African Americans being here instead of over in Africa. MODERN! It had absolutely nothing to do with slaves being brought over. It was a reference to the current state of blacks in this country versus those still in Africa. Are you saying the social/economic situation is better for black in Africa than in America today?
 
2003-04-15 12:32:58 PM
Bill kicks ass. You know why? Because he doesn't give a shiat... and neither do I. People are so worried about what everyone says. Get the fark over yourselves. Who cares. The old cliche "Actions speak louder than words" is true. I get criticized for what I say all the time. But I will never change, and neither will Bill.

You're welcome.

If you were a rich millionaire like my family and friends, you'd get a lot bigger tax break but you're not so you'll take whatever pittance I give you.

And if you don't like Bill O'Reilly, too bad. He and Rush are part of my shadow government that rules your worthless life.

Are you in here just trying to start a flame war? Certainly you don't use that amazing knowledge of history in other places...

Realize, white slaves were a not uncommon practice throughout the history of my ancestors (I'm white). Black slaves were often sold to slave traders by other tribes, or sometimes by their own tribe.
We kept slavery going, but I do not believe we were the same country to do so. Then slavery was abolished (technically).

And my God, if you're going to lay the blame for Africa's...downturn, at least blame anything that was happening recently, why don't you blame the Europeans for essentially taking over for awhile? That would be a much better argument IMO. But those still are not the only contributing factors...
 
2003-04-15 12:38:08 PM
Lewis... farking priceless! Although I had not considered your "Jenna" as the host of a show, I must admit (after very little thought) that I would choose your "Jenna" for a bit of a rocket polish over the other Jenna.

thanking america for ending slavery? are you retarded? if i was raping your mother, then stopped, would you thank me?

the united states was the one of last developed nations to get rid of slavery. and that was only after a brutal civil war. problems continue to exist today because individuals like you never wanted the system to change.

"What's wrong with that? They are better off in America than Africa. Have you looked at what Africa is like?"

What would Africa look like if there hadn't been a practice of taking the best and the brightest and making them slaves? If you have any interest in archeaology and ancient history you would know that Africa was doing pretty damn good until slavery came along.



Um, do you have any facts to support this statement? Was there some kind of test someone had to pass before they could qualify to be a slave? I was under the impression they just grabbed whoever was available. Also, i've never owned any slaves but if it was me I wouldn't want the most intelligent people as slaves. Seems like the smart ones would be more likely to try and revolt against the opression
Besides how smart do you gotta be to pick cotton or load hay or whatever it is they had them doing?

These types of incidents always remind me of Howard Cosell when after many years of covering boxing, and then Monday Night football he made the quote "Look at that little monkey run" on a Monday night football game in reference to a black athlete. He had no racial intent in his heart when he said it, as he was known to often use the same phrase to refer to young white athletes as well as his grandchildren, but those who had a desire to see him off the air in the first place jumped on it as an example of racism. It's sad that we've come to a point where ones words can be twisted to mean something that they were never intended to, and ones deeds go ignored.

Oh, and congrates to Drew & crew on #500,000.

I never said there weren't white slaves. I also never said that Africans had no part in the slave trade. I said that we (Americans) took advantage of slavery and used it to our advantage and Africa's disadvantage. And slavery hasn't been abolished by any stretch of the imagination.

"And my God, if you're going to lay the blame for Africa's...downturn, at least blame anything that was happening recently, why don't you blame the Europeans for essentially taking over for awhile? That would be a much better argument IMO. But those still are not the only contributing factors..."

Slavery was, and is, the biggest contributing factor.

You lose all credibility when you accuse me of being for slavery. Yes you should thank America for ending slavery. Thousands of people died to end slavery. Probelms exist today because individuals like you view blacks as inferior and perputuate the myth that they don't have a chance in society because everyone is against them.

apparently you've never heard of the "cradle of civilization." the dark ages ended in europe because of the knowledge transfer from africa due to the crusades and trade. egyptians were building pyramids and creating math while europeans lived in caves.

2003-04-15 12:43:45 PM
So for a few generations they took the smart people out of Africa, and after that everyone born was dumb and the continent couldn't recover? I doubt that was the idea anyway, they just wanted people that could do the work. You want to blame someone for Africa? Blame the European colonizing countries. They took over Africa, then when they left they did so for the most part without making much of an effort to leave behind strong countries capable of governing themselves, and the continent is still suffering from that today.

Objectivist, You're half right, from my readings. Slavery was indentured servitude, but europeans morphed slavery from a servitude based on war and monetary obligations(war prisoners and debtees) to an economy that exploited a race of people BECAUSE of their race. Blacks were the only people who couldn't escape slavery, because their blackness gave them away. There were attempts at slavery with other races as well, but Blacks, however, 'stuck out like a sore thumb.' Also, slavery, after it was embraced by western europeans, was a much more harsh and brutal form of slavery than existed prior to western imperialism. The slave trade itself shows that, with conservative estimates of 10+ million slaves NOT making it from the African continent to the US/Caribbean. Also, you said we should stop feeling guilty about slavery. Dude, slavery's one of the biggest blemishes we have on our record. Need you be reminded that the civil rights movement was not even 50 years ago? There is a disproportionate amount of Blacks that have to struggle w/ poverty, and this stems from slavery and oppression. You're nave to think that in 40 years Black people will have an equal footing in American business or government, because Whites have, as a bloc, controlled the power base, and in my opinion, jokes like this, just feed the need to control that power structure.

Just so you all know, billions of years ago (a few months in our time) we aliens planted a single seed on your planet, from which every living creature grew. We are now waiting until you humans have evolved enough to be suitable for our needs. Soon we will harvest each and every one of you, and put you to work in our spice mines.

This is eminent for your race.
 
2003-04-15 12:49:14 PM
Slavery has been abolished here. I should've been more clear.
And yes, I realize it was only "technically" ended after the Civil War...and there continued to be people who were pretty much in the same situation as before.

We did take advantage of the situation, but others did as well. Doesn't make it right... just means you should realize we have "company" that deserves to be recognized.
