Oooh, that gives me an idea. I'd like for hospitals to have 2 different waiting rooms. One labeled: "Medicare/Medicaid" The other labeled "People with Insurance." The latter group would get treated faster and with the best doctors. We could do the same thing with Grocery Check Outs. One labeled "For food stamps" the other "Those paying Cash."


Thats fresh

I'm not saying there aren't people who have a legit mistrust... I'm saying that spreading the mistrust is bad. I really don't see how someone can disagree with this.

I got news for you, bad things continue to happen.

Thanks.
And here's my favorite white joke, told to me by Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover a long time ago:

Ced: Hey, Zach, how many white guys does it take to change a light bulb?
Me: Dunno
Ced: Two. One to call the electrician and one to mix the martinis.

You would think positively of something like this happening to anyone, regardless of race.

Why don't you start giving away your money as reparations now let the rest of us racists here live out lives.

no, you can bring it up on its own, but trying to tie it to African slavery is stupid & ignorant year-round.


Perhaps, but weren't the Irish starved to death in their own homeland?

You need to read about the Irish who built the canals of NewOrleans. They didn't use slaves because they were to value able,so the Irish did it and about 20'000 of them died while digging them. That's Twenty thousand!. Some of you liberals need to learn a little bit about the history of America.

What makes you think I haven't?

100 years later, did they have to ride on the back of the bus? Use different water fountains? Go to different schools? No.

Why not?

re: What NOT to say during Black History Month


quote:

“During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, [Oliver] Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.”

Martin goes on to explain that for some reason, the Irish slaves are often remembered as ‘indentured servants.’ However, in most cases during the 17th and 18th centuries, they were no more than “human cattle.”

“...the African slave trade was just beginning during this same period,” writes Martin. “It is well recorded that African slaves, not tainted with the stain of the hated Catholic theology and more expensive to purchase, were often treated far better than their Irish counterparts.”

During the late 1600s, writes Martin, African slaves were far more expensive than their Irish counterparts - Africans would sell for around 50 sterling while Irish were often no more than 5 sterling.

Further, the treatment of Irish slaves was thought to be more cruel than that of African slaves. If an Irish slave was beaten by their owner, it wasn’t considered to be a crime.


I want some reparations dammit.

Given a choice I'm sure many Irish would have preferred that.

This isn't 1965. It's 2013. A black president is in his second term. Move. On.


His point is: you can't erase the effects of 400 years of oppression in 50 years. This has nothing to do with "moving on". It's just a fact.
