  • Re: Black Americans Unfairly Targeted By Banks Before Housing Crisis, Says ACLU

    Smh @ some of these responsives

    We have former employees from Wells Fargo and Bank of America that have come testified that they were instructed to sell shoddy mortgages to would be African American homeowners, yet some of you want to make this into an issue of self accountability

    The same Bank of America who has lost multiple lawsuits accusing the institution of racist hiring pratices

    And the same Wells Fargo that refer to blk ppl as "mud people"

    To some degree or another, blk americans are born into a legacy of financial illiteracy...and that's something we need to address...but what these banks were doing is frowned upon and considered unethical for a reason

I don't know if I was hatin or not but damn I got heated after hearing that......... Y'all some smart niggas, can you confirm that Native Americans are eating because of reparations??????????

    Wouldnt call it eating...

    Vast majority live in mobile homes in the middle of the desert surrounded by land they cant grow shit on. They are stuck in a perpetual state of dependency

    Yea

    Teenage suicide rate on Native American reservations is through the roof

    "Reparations" aren't gonna mean shit if institutionalized racism isn't addressed as well


    With that said...

    I would be pro reparations for blks if that meant African Americans did not have to pay taxes

    After what we've have to endure and still have to endure today, its only right

    We shouldn't have to help to foot the bill of maintaining a country built by our descendants for free

  • Re: 21yo Dylann Roof walks into a Black church and, reportedly, 9 people dead at AME Church S.C(caught)

    What Roof did, he did alone...

    But all of our hands aren't completely clean either

    Whites can condemn his actions all day , but what does that really amount to when the next dylan roof turns his tv to one of cables highest rated channels fox news to hear more lies about "black poor", "inner city people", or "black pathology"

    Lies about the spoiled lives of "welfare queens" and their ex felon baby daddies with their "luxury" items such as tvs

    Lies that are designed to gin up white racial resentment while simultaneously legitimizing the pity party, white victimhood of "job creators" who actually believe that they are suffering in America, and how the poor should be envied

    What happens when politicians and other public figures who use similar rhetoric, are given a national stage to regurgitate these lies

    Are they ready to condemn these ppl with the same fervor they once used to drive a mike vick out the league and face up to their own prejudices

    And as for the others, are white liberals and conservatives alike finally ready to face up to their own white savior complexes

    I doubt it

    Than what happens when a another unarmed blk person is gunned down by the police but the officer is not immediately charged?

    What does it do to our subconscious mind when the media portrays blk ppl only as either desolate or "the help"

    For the next dylan roof i fear this will further validate his own superiority over "those people" in an act of racial narcissism and white supremacist dreaming

    And when will institutions such as the criminal justice system, which perpetuate racial disparities that have been used to legitimize a system of racial supremacy that benefit whites, be exposed for their acts of terrorism

    And what does it say to white americans when we subscribe to respectibility politics of a don lemon

    Than this just makes me think of the times i failed to do more as a blk person in my own neighborhood because of my own selfishness

    I dunno

    Hopes this sparks actual action and a real dialogue on race, rather than lets all gang up on the half wit, white hillbilly for a week or 2

    Not only is the the gun control talk but questions such as "is this an act of terrorism?" are distractions imho

    Maybe we should just go back to Africa. It's become clear that we're not wanted here.

    I hate when people say this its displays naivete defeatism and arrogance but it is oft repeated

    This is a country run by whites in almost every aspect.

    I am guessing that you would rather take the approach of war and "fighting back" for this country.

    I honeslty think its not worth it as alot of our people have already been slaughtered.

    This country is going to shit anyway so why fight for it?

    Going back motherland>>> race war

    They don't want us either. Plus you can't just plop down in the country without any infrastructure. Sounds good, but where are we getting land from in the motherland? I'm sure there will be an issue with 'us' getting land and not being 'native'. Then it will be American blacks vs. African blacks.

    What? Lol

    Africa is not just some lawless land covered in jungles

    And we don't have to conjugate in one country...Africa is one of one of thy largest continents on earth

    My point being, same as we dont actually own any land here so we rent it ...we do the same there

    I get it. I'm not not big on the idea of leaving america either, but its not a terrible idea u and others are making it seem

    It has its merits

    Actually in countries like ghana and south africa the african america presence is growing and predicted to continue to trend upward
