    We've all heard of black on black violence, but what always seems to get swept under the rug is the truth of where slavery originated. It is the quintessence of black on black violence...

    The original torturous concentration camps for would-be black american slaves were in Africa. Rich black power-mongers and chieftans would subjegate sometimes entire villages of fellow blacks they would sack and sell them to the highest European bidders for serious gold.

    When we hear this in our history classes we shudder and want to dismiss it. Selling out one's own ethnic identity is as abhorrant as selling out another..but there is something even more unsavory about it. It reflects a certain level of souless ruthlessness that makes us want to forget we ever heard about it. But we shouldn't..

    And we always hear about how whites (euro-americans) were so abusive to blacks. We never hear about how many whites were brought into this country as slaves as well as asians and the remnants of the smallpox-surviving native americans too who lived here but were subjegated. Their stories always take a back seat to black slavery accounts. I don't know why, perhaps it has to do with the numbers. Although very large numbers of native americans were not only enslaved, but also wholesale slaughtered; and asian americans died by the thousands (millions?) in slavery working on railroads..

    and so on.

    And here's another monkey-wrench for your smooth-running wheel of what consitutes integral qualities of race: thousands upon thousands of caucasian americans fell down and died in the Civil War in efforts to free black slaves in the South. White President Lincoln was assasinated by a white bigot retaliating for Lincoln's success at freeing slaves.

    More caucasians still risked life and limb and being jailed to operate the Underground Railroad to whisk southern blacks to freedom. Think about it for a minute. Would you risk your three-bedroom 1 &1/2 bath home, your SUV, custody of your children and prison time or even being hung by your neck until you were dead in order to whisk people you didn't even know to ease oppression from where they came from?

    Those people had brass ho-hos.

    You see, it's not about skin color, it's about human kindness vs human meanness. It's about greed. "Racism" should properly be called "using someone's skin color to justify doing something I know I shouldn't be doing by all rights." And that includes a lot of things.

    Now, one thing to remember is how this all ties into what is going on in politics today and why I keep harping about how AWFUL Barack Obama is. He has stolen the persona of a true american hero: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He meanwhile has participated in the subjegation the very people King Jr. sought to liberate: "fellow" minorities. And he did exterminate their hopes and dreams in his eventually unopposed run for Senate in Chicago.

    Obama is 1/2 caucasian-american and 1/2 Kenyan by racial ancestory. But in reality, essentially, in his most important part: his soul, he was estranged from his Kenyan finance-minister father and was raised entirely within a caucasian-american household, mainly in Hawaii. He went on to Ivy league schools and has lived a posh life ever since. Yet he is using the real struggles of some people who happened to have dark skin, like one of his DNA contributors, in order to wield power at all costs and get ahead.

    Will he "represent" when he gets into office? I don't know. Why don't you read up on what he did to "fellow" minorities in Chicago and tell me how you think he'll "represent" when he's got the reins finally in his smooth palms. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-070403obama-ballot,0,1843097.story

    Remember to focus on the person and not the color of their skin.

    Here's a BIGGER point - the people who were involved in slavery and the slaves themselves are long gone. This historical era has nothing to do with the present time.

    Yes it does.

    Because the history of racism traces it to its roots. You ever weed dandelions by pulling off just their tops?

    Yeah, were still seeing echoes of the whisky rebellion. :D

    Slavery ended 143 years ago. How long must this crap be carried on - a thousand years??? The political manipulation and race hustling from this long gone era is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy past the time when it should be put aside.

    I think that was my original point. Go back and read again and see if you don't agree...:)

    My hero! He's all about HOPE and CHANGE. He's soooooo dreeeeeamy.

    "He wasn't very proud of it."

    [But he went ahead and did it anyway]

    Be prepared for more of that in the future.

    From the desk of Senator Hillary Clinton, 2003:

    And about Bill Clinton

    Nevertheless, Obama insinuated Clinton is a racist. Why? Because it helped Obama gain in the primaries. Period.

    Now, look at what Obama did for minorities in his Chicago bid for Senate seat:

    Obama wasn't proud of his own petty, underhanded extermination of the hopes and dreams of "fellow" minority hopefuls, but he went ahead and did it anyway..

    Now what other historical figure turned his head away from his own mistreatment of fellow human beings but continued to order their demise anyway? Get out your history books kids..

    And in non-racial matters...

    Yeah, screw those Clintons and their actual put-their-money-where-their-mouths-are support of minorities, their strong economic policies and their proven leadership.

    Give me Barack Obama for CHANGE!
