I could keep going.

I'm sorry, but that was just ignorant in saying "White people are better."
Dont even try and pull that.
I could make a list for 200 pages.

Right now, tell me 10 black inventions that have changed lives.

And George Washington Carver invented PEANUT BUTTER..... what a great great man, Peanut butter really does compare to the automobile.

I'm not going to take sides in this, Malcolm X is completely right. We did do all the horrible things to them.

However, I think people took what I said and exaggerated it. All I said was that white people aren't the only racists, and it's true.

The real problem is what came after the Civil War: Jim Crow, institutional racism, systematic disenfranchisement, etc.

Racism is never going to stop. theres always going to be a group of people who think they are better than another even if they are or they arent.

Just looking at things in those terms is pretty fucking racist, and pretty closed-minded and ignorant.

Once again proving how fucking stupid you are. Enslaving a group of people regardless of their race is still making them slaves. Whether an indian enslaves a white person, another indian, or Mother Theresa, it is all against there will. Once again showing you are a complete dumb fuck.

im not complaining about them calling us crackers... i dont give a fuck if someone calls me a white bread cracker... its just a word and im not offended by it. but if i were to call someone a "nig-nog"... i would be extremely racist.

not all black people are in bad financial situations because of slavery.. there are people who become addicted to bad drugs and spend all their money on drugs and alcohol. they want reparations for something that happened to their great great grandfather or something... they can do something about it instead of going around screaming for reparations... im irish and lets say he died in a steel mill or something... now i want reparations from the country because he died hundreds of years ago and now im in a bad financial situation?

if they were smart they would go to 7-11 and buy condoms so they dont have 5+ kids... that not racist at all that goes for anybody. if u dont have a high payin job or u know that u arent going to have one then why have all these kids and have to support your families. and yes i thought about what i said before i said it u f.cking bitch
You fucking said "There are a lot of ILLEGAL mexicans here." How can you fucking tell?!
Free english lessons? Now youre just pulling shit out of your fucking ass.
My favorite thing youve said so far "If they were smart, theyd go to a 7-11 to get some condoms." Seriously, that has to be one of the dumbest things ive ever heard in my life, without a doubt. Dude, in mexico, a lot of them are fucking farmers or people who work in fucking fields like my dad used to at the age of fucking 3. They only have kids to help get money to live. The more shit they pick, the more money they get.
And they dont have high paying jobs because the US exploits them for cheap fucking labor, like they do in every other country.
Please, dont even start with me... You are retarded white person who thinks he knows everything about another minority race, when in reality, you couldnt be more wrong about everything youve just said.
