    Black People : Why white people need to admit that black people know more about pain

    Well, at least you're not self-righteous about it. I imagine then that should whites lose that civil war, you wouldn't self-victimize and would just get on with life, right? To the victor go the spoils.

    Black People : Why white people need to admit that black people know more about pain

    Then if in the future, when white people are a minority in America and laws are being passed to right past wrongs, by your own logic you should have no qualms with your property being redistributed to Native Americans.

    Black People : Why white people need to admit that black people know more about pain

    It would suck. But a world where that kind of justice actually happens? That'd be a world I'd want to live in. Also, like some on this forum have said, we whites are especially attached to needing people who are on top and on the bottom, others may not be so. If a land redistribution back to...

    Black People : Why white people need to admit that black people know more about pain

    If my property was returned to the local American Indian tribe the delightful irony alone would make it worth it. I had a professor in highschool I've stayed in touch with from South Africa who was black and lived through the Apartheid - he talked about having to walk by those farms that were...

    Black People : Why white people need to admit that black people know more about pain

    Is humility such an easy lesson to learn though? I'm not saying it's impossible, but the clock is ticking for how much longer the world has to put up with white America. It's about 25 years before whites become a minority and I'm hoping that by that time racism, real racism by whites against...

    Black People : Why white people need to admit that black people know more about pain

    Is there any way for one group to be so on top as white people are without it having been done in an immoral and dirty manner? We built our country on the backs of slaves, bullied the rest of the world and won the arms race, and enforced and continue to enforce white privilege in every facet of...

    Black People : Why white people need to admit that black people know more about pain

    There's a stagnation and fear that always comes when one demographic is in power too long. That's probably what's happening with the rise of the far-right, white, gun-touters and the far-left, white safe-spacers. One side is scared so they've gotten aggressive and hateful, and the other is...

    I know! I was being sardonic, though I'm often told my jokes come off too serious...It's a lifelong ailment.

    Black People : Why white people need to admit that black people know more about pain

    Most Germans do feel guilty about what nazis did to jews. There's a great article on it on it if you google Germany nazi guilt. The German author talks about how Germans youth had some real soul searching to do as they started questioning their parents and grandparents about their individual...

    Black People : Why white people need to admit that black people know more about pain

    I appreciate the welcome!! I brought this up in a very conservative forum the other day and so many people got so pissed off that I think we all know we have something to admit. "Even though some people give you no respect, be intelligent when you put them in check. When you're ignorant, you...

    Black People : Why white people need to admit that black people know more about pain

    I mean, yeah, it would be a really beautiful thing if it happened. Native Americans are owed a very fair share too. Racist attitudes are still very strong and widespread though, and tackling that needs to start happening now because America is on a pretty slippery slope with regards to race. The...

    Black People : Why white people need to admit that black people know more about pain

    Going over a few of the articles posted there....Between $1.4 trillion and $6.4 trillion would be owed factoring in stolen labor and lives during slavery and also including repression of black rights and upward mobility since then, like redlining, white terrorism against African Americans...

    Black People : Why white people need to admit that black people know more about pain

    Thanks, I'm going to check it out. That guy sounds like a *****, but I'm not him. I wasn't criticizing the movie if it came off that way, it was probably the most offensive thing I've ever seen so in other words yeah, wow, it's hard to know what to say about it but that if there's any racism in...
