Same thing in our country when we arrived. There were numerous Indian tribes but they were fading in number because as the larger tribes began attacking the weaker ones, their land was taken and the women and children were placed into slavery and the men killed. On a personal note, I dislike that we rooted American Indians out of their land but whites weren't the only race oppressing other humans over the thousands of years we've been roaming the earth. But this truth doesn't stop people from demonizing our country. Think about it, every country in the G-8 was engaged in slavery at one point or another and it wasn't always African Americans who were made slaves.
Since blacks were willing to enslave other blacks in Africa, they have no moral authority to place the sole blame of slavery on white people. They were willing to enslave fellow blacks when they arrived in the U.S., as these wealthier black Americans weren't only part of the slave trade and making money, there were also around 10,000 slaves that were owned by African Americans. Once again, even though this is the case, white people are blamed for bringing this evil into the world.
This is what we're up against. We're called names. We're said to be morally bankrupt when all the evidence shows something entirely different. I've mentioned this before but there's absolutely no evidence that African Americans are more morally conscious than whites or any other race. There's no evidence that if the roles were reversed, that blacks would've refused to enslave whites. It makes no sense that they wouldn't. They were willing to enslave people from their own race, why in the world wouldn't they be willing to put white people in chains? There's not even evidence that blacks would've fought through the court system and on the battlefield, to free white slaves. Would they have done it? No one knows for sure but based on factual data, there's nothing to say that they would've been any better than white slave owners. Think about it, we are judged by African Americans over our morality when they don't have the moral authority to do so. Shoot, Democrats and the media both make it appear that whites should be ashamed.
Lastly, slavery did exist but white people living today, and several generations before us, had nothing to do with slavery. A very small percentage of Americans had ancestors who were slave owners. Mostly rich people with large plantations owned slaves and there weren't that many of them. If someone had a relative living back then, more than likely he or she was either a farmer or a tradesman. So not only should whites not be demonized for slavery because our families had absolutely nothing to do with it, but even if they did, we are not responsible for choices made back in history. It would be ridiculous. Thus why for so many reasons, there should never be reparations.
Please speak up. I've stopped being worried about how I'm perceived by people who quite frankly, I don't respect. In many cases it's not about creating change because quite frankly there's not much we can do beyond the many things our country has done for the African American community such as the trillions of dollars that have been spent helping them with clothing, food, shelter, etc. Instead of seeing where we could actually improve things it has gotten to the primary goal of revenge. It's about making white people suffer like they've "supposedly," suffered even though it's not true that they have.
They don't have a clue about using separate restrooms, water fountains, schools, etc. For sixty years, they've had the benefits that blacks and whites have fought and died for with legislation like The Civil Rights Act. They aren't being oppressed like their ancestors. They act like they have and that they're justified in shaming white people but they aren't. There is no systemic racism and they have absolutely no proof that there is, but it doesn't stop them from pushing a false narrative with the help of Democrats and the mainstream media that they are victims of white people. They want us to pay for our sins. What sins? I'm okay with being held accountable for my behaviors but I refuse to be held accountable for others.
The bottom line is that race relations will never improve to any reasonable level, if African Americans continue to blame others for their plight. It's just common sense and logic.
If we remain quiet about allowing people to block the streets, loot and set buildings on fire, assault other people, then when will it end? How bad can things get? Fight the good fight. Don't allow other people to use false narratives just because of the color of your skin. Demand that you be judged by the content of your character and not accept the Democratic Party's attempt at demonizing our beloved country.
Please keep in mind, that what I wrote above isn't a statement about all African Americans. Millions of blacks agree that no one can fix their core problems but themselves. They don't demonize white people. In other words, there are awesome African Americans who use common sense and logic versus following a philosophy that is predicated upon no accountability for someone's own actions. It's hard to improve when we point a finger at someone else and place all the blame there versus looking inside for answers.
