Free North Carolina: George Washington Statue Hidden In Box By NAACP
Washington owned slaves so I'm not surprised they covered him up
One day Africans will tear it down
Washington was the Father of our nation. He deserves the respect of all Americans. And the NAACP can kiss my ass if they don't like it.
When you live in a country that once had in their law books, in their original Constitution of all places, that you are or were once 3/5ths of a person and worth less then non-living products, when you live in a country that once had in their law books, that if anyone attempted to teach you to read was a crime worthy of severe punishment...you tend to have a different view of the original laws and foundation/founders of that country.
The only hatred between Whites and Blacks are from those who are baby-boomers. The younger generation has accepted that we are different and are not holding it against each other. They are befriending each other and having a good time together, while we boomers are still arguiing over issues that are not solving a damn thing. When are we as adults and mature people in this country going to realize that hating each other is a waste of time? Both White and Black boomers need to let go of the PAST. We are blessed to even have lived to see 2011. But are we grateful? Hell no, we just want to keep hating and being antagonistic towards each other. Truly, we are a sorry people.
Well, no, it ain't just the Baby Boomers who harbor racial hatred, casper -- though I'd agree the experience is very different for young people now. And I dun think forgetting is the way to go.
In fact, I'd argue that forgetting is 90% of the problem.
Forgetting what? That when Blacks were brought to America they were sold as slaves? Who doesn't know that? So how is it going to be forgotten? Why not start a new history? Whites and Blacks live together in harmony. I know I do and it isn't hard either!!
I kinda think ONCE, is very key here. I believe that we as a Nation have done more to correct our EVILS then most other nations. But that's just me.
Yes, and that is applause-worthy, casper. So do I. But I still want to keep the history in mind, and that includes seeing George Washington had clay feet.
