It seems people in this thread do not know the difference between the African Slave trade and the "slavery" that affected other races of people, i.e. Eastern Europeans, Israelites in Egypt, etc... the difference is those slaves were still seen as a person... During the African Slave, blacks were seen as chattel or beast of burden.. less than human. A mule was worth more than a black person in those times... Slavery affecting Eastern Europeans could be seen as indentured servitude if anything... Even to count population, Blacks were seen as 1/3 of a actual person.. And what happens if for centuries you are told you are worst than nothing, that you will never measure up to your white peers.. you will start to believe it and that was passed on throughout generations, hence the term Slave mentality... You say it doesnt effect black people today? Hell, black people today probably have great-grandparents who are still alive that had grandparents that were slaves.. you dont think me tell stories? Some blacks today were Sharecroppers in the early 1900s, which was pretty much legalized Slavery.. they went back to the same plantations there parents were just freed from and worked the fields and were paid what? Owner gave them a place to live on the land, gave them leftover food he didnt want.. sounds pretty similar to me..
You think slave mentality only effects blacks? I guess all the men who died working in the coal mines in the north did it for s**ts and giggles? Explain to me how THEY were benefiting from slavery.

You have to pick a story and stick with it. Either the slavery blacks went through is the worst thing ever and everyone should stop b***hing about any type of lingering racism or "slave mentality" that persists. Or we acknowledge that ALL races have gone through various forms of slavery, indentured servitude, and suffer the effects of racism. But you can't go around telling every other race to just man-up when it comes to their people being victims of slavery and racism; and then cry your panties off over every injustice blacks face.

I'll concede that maybe white people know as much about being black, as black people know about being white. As has been said, every race has been enslaved at different points during history. You can't lump all people together just because of their skin color. When I read about gang violence in the paper, I don't expect Oprah to apologize just because she's black. If you think of all white people as greedy CEOs of fortune 500 companies and all blacks as from the ghetto, then you're more racist than anyone else here. America's not fair, and it never will be. But it's inequality isn't based on the color brown, it's based on the color GREEN.
I DIDN'T SAY s**t LIKE THAT...WTF ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT....AMERICA'S NOT FAIR AND IF I THINK ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE GREEDY????....GTFO OF HERE YOU TWISTING MY WORDS, I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THE f**k YOU TALKING ABOUT n*gga

DAMN PEOPLE READ AND EITHER THEY MISINTERPREPT OR MISUNDERSTAND, f**k

Why the f**k are people saying s**t like "Im sick of black people b***hing about slavery"

I didn't ask for this, none of my black folk asked for this. So if you white people are mad at anyone over this be mad at the mostly white Senate who did this

I cant believe this is a hip-hop site Seems more like a neo-nazi site on the low

They still owe us something.... The Japanese got theirs... And slavery put us so far behind on the social ladder, we've been struggling ever since. Plus the fact that there was ever "Jim Crow" says a lot about the residual affects of slavery--Basically, white people don't give a damn about Black folks.
They just now apologizing because Obama is President as if that means the history of slavery can't hold Black people back no more.

But remember this: OBama ain't got a drop of slave blood in him!!!!!

Young black people haven't been through anything?:angry12:

Are you white?

You would never understand ANYTHING about BLACK PEOPLE. End of story you will never get it. BLACK People are discriminated against because of their skin color, ALONE.

We young blacks may have not been through slavery but we have been through enough BULLs**t to make one of us slap your granddaddy, his daddy and his four founding fathers too. Again, PUT YOURSELF IN BLACK PEOPLES POSITION, Oh I am sorry you can't.

Everytime time we try to have OUR MOMENT...you know what I am not going to keep explaining to you because you won't get it...You do not know what it is to be BLACK.

Actually, I'm black.
And with me being black, I'm sick of other young black people using slavery as their excuse for leading nonproductive, wasteful lives. No white man is holding you back, and slavery has no effect on you. None of us was alive to experience it, so y'all need to quit whining about it. How many successful black people (besides rappers) do you hear whining about slavery?
Learn to take responsibility for your own life and your own actions. Quit using a century-old excuse that you weren't around to experience. This is exactly why I don't a.ssociate with low-class black people...

And to the white people on the board, you all have nothing to apologize for. You or your parents didn't own any slaves. So don't let these ignorant black people make you feel like you're at fault for slavery.
u said it best.

an apology wasnt needed, everybody knows it was wrong, but like the other dude said throughout this thread, slavery cant be used as any type of excuse, its not like whites, hispanics, and asians dont get discriminated against too, maybe not as much but still, everybody born after slavery got a fresh start, while some might be at a disadvantage as far as starting with former slaves who were uneducated its not a reason for someone young now, lets not blame slavery but rather the members of the family tree who never broke out of that cycle and taught their kids to believe everybody who doesnt like them is discriminating against them cuz of their skin and not cuz of their actions, what about minority scholarships when there is nothing for being white, and schools that keep a certain percent of minorities, so if it came down to 1 spot, a black guy vs a white guy, the white guy could have better grades and scores but if they need to fill the minority % the white guy doesnt get in even though he deserved it more

Lol @ White peoples views on slavery and the after effects...

Go Kidnap, r*pe, enslave and murder somebody today, and when you get to court, try your "Just get over it" argument and see how fast they throw the book at your a.ss...

White people basically did this, took a race of people, made them slaves to help build this Country, While at the same time striving to keep them ignorant and oppressed mentally... Abolished that same slavery and made everything they used to build this Country "Illegal". Replaced slavery with Segregation/Jim Crow etc... waited a few more years until they had a firm enough grip on the Country, and then said "go fish"...

Thanks :) , You guys were so nice to black people... where would we be without you?
