Lol @ me being white.
You ignorant black people make me look bad with your a.ssumptions. Just because another black person doesn't see himself as a victim of "the man," y'all a.ssume he's white.

Let me also give another huge "LOL" to all the the other n.iggers in here who are getting hurt over my comments. Truth hurts, doesn't it?
No, I a.ssume you are white because of the dumb s**t you are saying in regard to black people. Nobody said anything about being a victim of "the man"... I hope you are white because if you're black talking this kind of s**t its unbelievable that you are the sperm that made it...

Whether we get a "real" apology or not, the wrongs did to us by the white man has made us stronger. As a result African-Americans are an elite race that is indicated by our accomplishments in sports, medicine, science, politics etc...

We were slaves because we were physically capable. The Indians and feudalist white boys weren't... We survived because we were mentally, spiritually, and psychologically tougher than any white man could imagine.

We don't need a white apology. A sincere one would be nice though...

Nonetheless, African-Americans are a unique race and a testament to who we REALLY are.

We all know the manipulative role that the white man played in all this was way bigger than any African role in our capture.

Make no mistake, we crossed the Atlantic and morphed into greatness. Anyone who fails to admit or recognize that is a hater.

There is no such thing as an "elite race".

Your "accomplishments" in any of the things you mentioned are either equalled by others (see: "sports") or completely dominated by others (see: "medicine, science, politics") LOL.

The Native Americans, & even those "white boys", weren't as open to being enslaved, you're right. I don't think that's a bad thing though, is it?

As for outright "physical capability", the Natives were felled by disease too easily. Europeans weren't. So why weren't Europeans used..because they weren't "physically capable"? Or because Europeans were too expensive? Africans cost less, that's why they were used. It's really bizarre that you see being enslaved as some kind of reflection of admiration.

And "survived"? Millions upon millions died. And I thought you were all mentally scarred by this? So what kind of "survival" is that?
You're actually arguing AGAINST this "apology", you idiot.

Almost nothing "unique" about you really, & you could find tougher people in Africa in a heartbeat.

If you really believe the current African-American existence, or any collective existence in the world today, is "greatness" then you have exceptionally low standards.

I mean I don't know how much this really means. But I'll give them an "A" for effort. Doesn't really say much.

I dont care that they said it. What is that going to do for us? Nothing...nobody should be using their blackness as an excuse to not achieve great things. We are past that already.

I showed my friend this article and they said they should worry about giving us some funds to say sorry. They not handing out reparations because that's just another reason for us not to contribute a damn thing to society. You didn't break your back picking a damn thing, or being embarrassed so why should anybody get money for slavery? If you think we should get money, how about they just give us free college, so that everybody has a fair advantage?


I think that most of America is past the fact that we where slaves, its history. Its very clear that blacks are equal to whites. Its a shame that not every parent agrees to teach thier children that. But as far as the Government saying sorry...Its nothing to me.

Holy s**t, Boxden going to new lows.


Being white does not make u a descendant of slave owners.


Todays racism is very much alive and most of it fuelled by DUMB s**t like stereotypes or the action of dumb greedy motherf**kers.


Now stop arguing about this s**t, cause YES slavery still has its effects on some of todays black communities but whinning and hoping for something in return for dat is a waste of time and energy.

um, no. the native americans knew the land too well, which made it easier to escape and they were far too susceptible to european diseases. the europeans weren't able to withstand the tropical diseases, which was evident when they first ventured to Africa and died much like the natives died when first encountering europeans. Africans were cheap, not susceptible to disease, and unable to escape due to lack of knowledge of the land.

If you say so. Of course, there was a reason it was considered treason to enslave someone from your own tribe and sell them.

the problem is that people like you tend to think that all white people's ancestors owned slaves and that all blacks in america come from slaves. My ancestors were white slaves in eastern europe, and i'm supposed to apologize for slavery because of the color of my skin? How would you feel if i asked you to apologize for gang violence in america.

And if anyone should be issuing an apology, it should be the africans who sold their brothers into slave trade. They were already slaves before the white men bought them.
amen!

And to the guy who said " people in the hood only think they can be good at sellin dope" cause we dont but no money in the hood, im sure it's because that's what they growing up and want to become the dude slangin out the vacant house and dont want to go graduate high school and go to college...it's in your head my dude. Change your attitude and your attitude will change your future.

- I'm actually pretty sure there are African Americans that aren't descendants of slaves. Is Obama even a slave descendant? ...

Obama's father was born and raised in Africa...who later migrated to America in his later teen years.

His mom is a white lady from Kansas...

so to answer your question, No Obama is not a descendant of slaves.

I'm amazed at how much hate an apology can stir up...

Simply put, the entire modern world is aware of the atrocity of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade and African-American Slavery. And now everyone non-Black has something to say about it...

In sum, they apologized (whether timely, or sincere), and I'm sure we've earned at least that.

the big picture behing slavery is mental thats why most african americans is behind because of a late start in equal rights ppl couldnt vote get jobs or do anything then one day they allow it u think thats gonna help out alot? slavery is the reason why racism exists now ppl think african americans should still be slaves
slavery is not the reason some are racist to blacks. Racism is what implied slavery. You have to see someone as subhuman to begin with in order to enslave them.

At any rate, perhaps some of their ancestors owned slaves but they had no control over which family they were born into (and neither do i). The best thing people can do is just move on as one
