    "Brent Staples of The Times’s editorial board has won the Pulitzer Prize for editorial writing. His writing sought to show that the devaluation of black lives that led to slavery still haunts the United States"

    calling non-racist people racist cheapens the evil of real racism and alienates good folks from the real fight against racism

    It is very strange that you spend a lot of time thinking about something that ended over a century before you were born.



    That you get angry about it, is very odd.



    You should mention this to your doctor. It might be nothing, but it could be something, maybe even something easily dealt with.

    /——/ That’s why your life will never amount to anything more than seething rage. We fought a war and freed the slaves 150 years ago

    Youre disregarding a fact. All of us have ancestors who suffered so we can live better today than they did. Black Americans should be really happy slavery happened and ended before they were born. They reap those benefits every day.

    Slavery did not start in America. Nobody has a claim on slavery. Every civilization and every religion had slaves. Slavery is now outlawed although still practiced in Muslim countries. If you hate America you will have to find a better reason. Watch the MSM they will supply you with plenty.

    /—-/ I hate communists, flat domestic beer, stepping in dog shyt because some slob wouldn’t clean up after fluffy went on the sidewalk and poorly written TV commercials. But I guess you love them.
