    and just to add on.... about the racism and name calling. Mind your glass houses. Everyone has an excuse to convince themselves that it is warranted to call out another race in negativity, but when a mirror is put back in one's face, crying and whining usually begins. YOu must not forget the past but strive to move forward. Most can't handle the latter......

    Sorry to put another race on front street but the truth is the truth and talking about it don't hold me back. Nor should it hold anyone else back.
    Who's crying?

    Blacks murder whites at 18 times the rate whites murder blacks.

    That's a fact, but you don't see me making threads about that.

    BC when your race is on "front street" things change. Instead of me typing, and since the subject is of the former civil rights leaders, you can start with Bill Cosby's "controversial" speech that had everyone in an uproar.

    [QUOTE=Aqueousmoon]If I was a white person, I would probally feel defensive too. And this is why:

    1) Guilt - because my ancestors did very cruel things

    2)Embarrassment - because everyone in the world knows how sick things can get in the hands of whites.

    3)Ignorant- for being realted to such ignorant people like the ones who through Rosa in jail.
    [QUOTE] I'm not being defencive about anything, but I will explain it the way I feel plain and easy.
    #1 Guilt - I don't feel guilty for what my ancestors may have done. I am not my ancestors. (if one of your ancestors killed a person does that make you guilty of what your ancestors did.
    #2 Embarrassment - No That was there own stupidity to do something as wrong as that, they should be embarrast.
    #3 Ignorant - Once again No If you were related so someone who was dumb enough to through someone in jail for not giving up there seat on a bus, does that make you dumb enough to do the same thing?

    Anyways, Rosa was a very big influence to anyone of any race who understands what she was doing, Standing up for her ppl, and for her own beleifs.
    I don't give a god damn, on the shows you did
    How many rhymes you got, or who knows you kid?
    Cuz I don't know ya therefore show me what you know

    but I thought everyone already knows about the truth in this PARTICULAR case and can admit it....regardless of guilt or embarassment

    but you are right, whenever a thread like this is made, there are always people being defensive.

    In many threads (even some unlike this one) people think their role is to defend something, when in fact there is nothing to defend.

    I don't care what you post....I could care less.
    It is a fact that black people are arrested more than whites,
    harrassed by police more than whites,
    get harder sentences than whites do,
    and are more poor than whites.

    Peace.

    It was never my position that black people are perfect....
    If you are black and what Bill Cosby has to say applies to you than you should accept it.
    My race has been on front street for 400 years at least.
    Every shortcoming, fault, or weakness in my race has been exploited.

    LOL...it's not about being defensive, it is about the hypocracy in this section It is ok and justified to point out the faults and call the evil white man names bc it's just being "real", but if criticism is layed upon black people, threads are closed and people are banned.

    The point is a lot of people like to point fingers and call other races names bc they feel jutsified and it makes them feel good, but like I said, a mirror is put up to their face, it's racism and just not right. It is ridiculous.

    Actually, calling whites devils is what brought a lot of black people to some common sense back in the day.
    I mean if you think about it.......... How popular were Malcom X and Muhammad Ali?
    They were popular even amongst whites and they were loved all around the world.
    But, that wasn't the point I was making when I started this thread.
    so thanks for bringing it up.
    Peace. Aqueous

    Do you think that pointing fingers and calling fault is going to solve anything, this isnt the place or the time for that, your just porring gas on the fire, leave it alone, last I remember this thread for ppl giving repect to Rosa Parks, not talkin trash about other races.

    To be honest, the problem is that a majority of black people wear slavery and discrimintion as an albatross and in present times have been taught learned helplessness. Yes slavery was an obscene practice but the fact of the matter is just about every race has endured some type or form of it or inhumane conditions. Some worse than others. And I'm sorry but black people in America don't hold the title for the worst.

    There is racism that contributes to the things you listed, but there is also personal responsibility. A lot of the problems could be lessened, avoided or overcome if personal responsibility were to come into play.

    An example, and I don't mean this to sound trite or simplistic but the botom line is sometimes you have to let go of the neagivity and create possitivity.........If certain white people in power have a systematic plan to try and destroy black people, it cannot be facilitated without their help. They can put all the liquor stores they want around, send in all the drugs, and supply the guns, but they can't force the liquor down anyones throat, as well as the drugs, and they can't pull the triggers themselves.


    At the end of the day it always comes down to personal responsibilty, a practice that everyone, no matter race, color, or creed, has always tried to avoid.
