    It was the first line of your link. You don't have to be educated, you need to read more than the title.

    Where have I said that history hasn't played a part in the negative state? Quote me on it!

    Didn't specifically say you did, theirs a lot of others i'm arguing with who seem to think it doesn't as you can see.

    exaggerating? i'm just going to ignore that before i get too heated because its obvious some of you are just racist acting like african americans all got together and said hey lets move to the ghetto and commit crime! They were practically dropped there from their homelands in a sink or swim situation and look at what the achievements they have bloody made.

    I'm quite ignorant to the Israel/Palestine situation so i'm not going to even touch on it but a sad state of affairs,why do you ask?
    I said you're exaggerating because said 400 years, don't criticise other people's maths when you struggle reading.

    You're talking about history, not the opportunities presented to African Americans in the present day. I won't deny that being white still serves as a benefit in virtually western country but don't pretend that everyone in the USA is a racist who hates blacks and wants to oppress them.

    It's amazing how some people from ethnic minorities play the race card whenever they're challenged or disagreed with.

    I asked because Jews have been oppressed for thousands of years so by your logic whatever they do toward Palestine is reasonable

    Not once did i condone crime or say being a criminal is reasonable most of the crime blacks commit are against other blacks anyway so its clearly not a "pay back" thing like your making it out to be.
    There is an underlying cause of a lot of the negative stuff in their community which is all im arguing but i see everyone wants to twist my words so im done with this discussion.

    I notice you left a lot of what I said out.

    You didn't explicitly say it, it's jus the impression you give off.

    Well again you gave the impression you sympathise with African American criminals because of the perceived lack of job opportunities and denial of a 'decent life'

    and i noticed how you completely overlooked the massively bigoted post i was initially quoting "why do black americans want to be gangster?" it was your total lack of context to my argument which led to your ridiculous assumption that i was condoning crime.

    Someone else claimed that Asians in America are lovely and peaceful and, in your response, you sympathised with criminals

    What was my response about asians?? My goodness you are either trolling or the most obtuse person ever, you are all over the place.

    I pointed out that it shouldn't be surprising that the race with the most brutal history in america are the ones committing the most crime .
    Its as if i said "its pay back time for the years of rape and slavery of black americans they should all kill and steal muwhahahahaha" now that would be sympathizing with criminals but all i did was state the correlation between history and the way some parts of that community have turned out.

    We have been through this, the Natives had a much more brutal history.

    Another fail at basic maths, the number of natives left in america isnt the same as blacks so of course the crime would be lower and tell me how it was more brutal i know its largely debated but you can stop repeating yourself.

    TSR yet again gives me the impression that the only acceptable form of resistance against a discriminatory, repressive and inherently violent regime is a Ghandi-like pacifism. Anything else must be immediately denounced as terrorism.

    Out there in the real world, things are more complex....
    Often the more peaceful "moderate" types only get what they want because of the more extreme lot. We won a load of right sand social victories in Britain for fear of a revolution like that seen in Russia. Our police were in danger of going awol. The fear of communism also played a big part in The New Deal in america. Lot of powerful people were convinced some moderate redistribution was needed to quell the threat of anything worse.

    The same sort of thing applies to Malcom X (the more extreme one) and Martin Luther King (the "moderate").

    White people have been enslaved. My ancestors were enslaved by the Normans and the Romans long before that.

    We have moved on and don't give it a moments thought. African Americans need to do the same and stop playing the victim all the time and take responsibility for the actions of their own young who get sucked into drugs and gangs and crime, rather than blaming white people for all their problems.

    By the way if you want to have credibility you need to learn not to play the "racism" card as you did in a later post.

    As soon as you do that you lose all respect.
    This is a stupid comparison honestly, you're going to compare that to slavery+Jim crowa and the black codes? all of which were implemented to ensure the second class status of black people in america. I honestly despise statements like "get over it" like it was no big deal, the slavery of your ancestors had nothing to do with the colour of their skin.

    They had 90% of their population wiped out by the European settlers and then were forced to walk thousands of miles to reserves which they were forced to live on.

    It wasn't until 1924 where they were allowed to become US citizens and did not get full rights until 1948.
