Yes, I'm stirring the pot; and I don't normally do that intentionally. Nobody tells the Jews to get over the Holocaust. I just feel I need to emphasize the fact that although slavery was abolished over 130 years ago black Americans still suffer the consequences today. It's not because we want to be martyrs. Contrary to what many believe we are not looking for a handout. Personally, I don't believe in reparations for slavery; but thats the topic of another thread. Given my lineage I'm more likely to be eligible for some of the Native American casino money than reparations. :redface: The reason I and many other black Americans can't forget.
