@nipower888: when statistically looking at people as different like most do with blacks, no it isn't. Africans Americans have no real idea what happened to their ancestors in the past and blame the white man for no reason. Plus the media doesn't help, the government doesn't teach us.. Were raised to believe and learn half of actual history when the rest is held secret for a explored knowledge..
Do the polish ever point fingers at Germans? Irish at the English? Anyone else? Why is it only blacks and whites? If people thought of people as people and not different by race, this world would be a pretty decent place.
*didnt read the rest of you comments but I see now
I agree with the bolded part. Someone on here kept saying "us" when referring to slavery. Umm, you were never a slave. You were never beaten. You never had your child ripped from your arms. We all hear stories and read the books. But the idea that they somehow experienced the REAL PAIN of slavery because they are the same race is..... stupid. My aunt, grandma and cousin had cancer. I have NO FUKING IDEA what it's like to deal with cancer. I see some of the effects of it...but have no idea how it really is.
