    Are Blacks better off today because their ancestors came here as slaves centuries ago...or would they be better of in Central Africa with violence, civil war, Ebola, famine, tropical diseases and filthy water? I don’t see what the point of the complaint is with the congressman or Robert E. Lee?

    While I think life in America today is better than life in Africa, that does NOT excuse the slave trade, nor should we expect black folks to appreciate being descendants of slaves.

    The two are not mutually exclusive.

    Who gives a shit.. The only blacks I am interested in, are my friends who moved away from the victimhood of liberalism and are now millionaires running their own businesses. We sit and chat about how liberals have destroyed the black family and still many of the blacks still vote for their own misery.

    Back when slavery was legal, white indentured servants first came from Ireland, and then when the market opened up, when 1 African tribe attacked another African tribe, the loser was either killed or put into indentured servitude(work 4 to 7 years then be set free with property rights) right alongside of the Irish. But in the late 1600's a black planation owner Anthony Johnson sued to keep his indentured servants as slaves and the English courts appeased his request and the start of slavery happened. Real nice of a blackman to be the first SLAVE OWNER in America.

    Overview
    Anthony Johnson (b. c. 1600 – d. 1670) was a black Angolan who achieved freedom in the early 17th-century Colony of Virginia after serving his term of indenture. He became a property owner that owned slaves, and was one of the first people in Virginia to have his right to own a slave legally recognized. Held as an indentured servant in 1621, he earned his freedom after several years, and was granted land by the colony.

    I know a black lady that doesn’t hesitate to say she’s happy her ancestors came here. She commented that otherwise she could sitting in some shithole in Africa.

    One word: Liberia. Even after American black folks had their own African country to go back to if they wanted, it turned into an utter clusterfuck.

    Yes, African-Americans are much better off here, no matter what they had to go through. I think many black folks particularly the ones ate up with liberalism, should be proud of being an American. How much more did the Jews have to endure before they established Israel?

    Far more.

    Well, it just doesn't get more racist than this. What is it you would like to hear? That it's okay to be a racist puke and do nothing about systemic racism, because some people are worse off? Then find a mirror amd tell yourself that.

    Who gives a shit about them?

    What I do know, and I am certain everyone would agree with this, including all liberals.

    We all would be better off if all of those went and lived in sub saharan Africa.

    Close your eyes and just imagine......

    Just imagine.

    One can certainly dream.

    Most of THOSE PEOPLE don't even know why the capital of Liberia is named Monrovia.

    Here is a hint you dumb asses who love to celebrate negro patronizing month.

    The capital of Liberia is named after President James Monroe.
