Not for nothing but I'm getting sick of the Sharpton threads.

I would offer my two cents, but I would be earmarked as a racist because I don't put blame on my fellow white man.

I didn't post that thread to make people uncomfortable.

I post it so that you can try and feel how we as black people feel our plight here in america.

Most of the time white people have no clue about us.

If this link doesn't work , re-type it in your browser


I am not to fond of the messenger myself , but the boy is on point about the plight of his people.

Jim Crow name title is out dated especially for people your age, but he had some son,s james crow jr esquire who's much wiser more cunning.

Instead of calling me a racial name , he just wants to marginalize my exsistence.

We(govt) can look for WMD's in Iraq, but we couldn't see a hurricane in Lousiana that was there.

That's true, but don't blame all Americans for that, just the media outlets that labeled it as such.

No but white people responding to the slanted coverage were more concerned with punishing the so called looters than helping the stadium full of black folks stranded for a week because FEMA was dragging their feet to send relief
