      Reparations are due! 7.5 trillion, plus interest. They have to pay! And they will pay! They are paying as we speak!

        They still misunderstand. Your filed taxes, dictates slave status!

          I don't get how black people are ashamed of their ancestors enslavement, when the shame lies on those who forcibly held human beings in bondage, torturing and murdering innocent human beings. The lies against us as Africans are insane, used to justify America's saddistic evil. The lies run the gammet, from the idea of us being lazy, violent sub human even taking away our achievements, saying ancient Egytians are "white" that the bronze IFe heads found in ancient Nigeria were created by "white Atlantians" etc...Their insanity is the biggest embarrassment, not our surviving it. I never felt anything but pride knowing my ancestors survived a monsterous system. I always knew that the people who created the lie of white supremacy and racialized slavery, they were the ones who had their humanity gutted by their depraved social construction. The shame is white America's not ours. That is why the Right had pushed back so hard against this project. Because for once the true nature of what America did had been framed correctly in the public square.

              This sister knows her stuff. Cute too. And that thing on Atlanta is ironic. They wanted to separate us from them but didn't expect us to take over the whole city and be successful in business and other things there.

              For me, it's time to go back to Africa. Go home. At least visit...

                  1619 All English all of the time. It took a hodge podge of people to kick the Brits out of this country.. Medicare for all has nothing to do with slavery. Talking white racism today is stupid. Everyone who researched history go way beyond 1619. Start with Mesopotamia and get to 1619. Then see what your thoughts are. Nikole needs to do a DNA test because she isn't only black. Oooops.

                                J.Z. is not an athlete. He's an entertainer. What does he know more about equality than these NFL teams unions that were established but comes off weak. Just like the NBA that went on strike for better pay. They all stuck together what the union players should have done with Colin K. They left him out to hang by himself and the other brother. They scared, don't know that the Supreme Court had already ruled that an authority figure such as any shool administrative: school board member, president of S.B., principle, coaches, teachers, janitors, school bus drivers cannot force you to stand, put your hand, or sing the national anthem.
                                How black men gonna be not patriotic when you learn that the first to die was black Indigéne man, Crispus Attucks.

                                All Blacks were not from Africa spaceships. Many were already here (but, that's another story)

                                For young black folk not being taught that in k-12 grades; then, you do not know your Bill of Rights. How can you exercise your civic duty as an American Citizen?

                                Knowledge is power; and, ignorance is costly.😅

                                Most athletes go to college/university; especially these traditional white schools do not know that? What, Jay-Z, Kanye, Steve Harvey, etc. is suppose to know that; but, not these dumb jocks that don't read?

                                Why immigrants know it; but, born, right here in America, students dont know it?

                                Most blacks that are put into powerful positions just want the title and pay without ruffling the feathers of these white supremacist. They whine-up coming up putting more restrictions on us than the evil racist that forbade us, did.

                                Stop compromising and hold our position of what we want. Otherwise, you will always be called a wuss.

                                Ex: Dr. Ben Carson. (Republican wuss).
                                Just in a position of power and instead of helping his people, he's proposing to raise the 30% of adjusted income of tentant's portion of rent to 35% of their income instead of lowering it to 25%, 20%, 15%. How can low income folk ever come up?

                                    Africans were sold into slavery by their leaders to Arab traders. Their leaders put them in chains. Now most are Democrats adhering to Islam.

                                              So is there evidence to back up that claim for the design of Atlantas's highways?? Because that doesn't really make sense.

Black people need to stop pretending that there is a land full of people with skin like ours that will come an demand justice for us. none of that shits gonna happen. its only us. and we dont have the numbers. thankfully the indians have been waitin for a reason and the mexicans...welll they might of been on the fence before but i think the truth of the white man is crystal fuckin clear now.

They didnt have a choice in Europe anymore where they used to get slaves. . The African slave traders were willing to trade slaves for alcohol!
