    Maybe black Americans weren't responsible for slavery, but black Africans were. Black African enslaved other black Africans and sold them to the Europeans for export in the trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. Check this out:

    "Of those Africans who arrived in the United States, nearly half came from two regions: Senegambia, the area comprising the Senegal and Gambia Rivers and the land between them, or today’s Senegal, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau and Mali; and west-central Africa, including what is now Angola, Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Gabon. " [https://www.history.com/news/what-part-of-africa-d...

    Of the entire trans-Atlantic slave trade between Africa and the New World only about 3.6% of that trade went into North America. The rest went into the Caribbean islands. [https://www.history.com/news/what-part-of-africa-d...

    My point...the Europeans did not invent the slave trade. They only took advantage of the trade that was already there for the taking.

    In order to properly understand this farce of make-believe racism the blacks like to bring up and misplaced anger it is important to review the environment that cultivated it: for decades a large portion of black culture in America have simply rejected any assimilation with what they view incorrectly as "whitey's world"---this would be such values as education, responsibility and hard work.

    Instead in the wake of MLK's dream they have managed to fashion a thug sub-culture whose outer dimensions turn on such peachy values as illiteracy, fathering multiple children by multiple women, economic stasis, thug-fashion statements such as wearing pants on their knees showcasing their skiddy asses, and killing one another in an almost recreational sense.

    PC-protocol has also imposed a pardon-system for black crime in the media, and the message that trickles down to this element is that somehow their disgraceful conduct is excusable because their ancestors endured slavery 200 years ago...

    Really? You think race relations have not moved forward since 1865? And 1964? And that black people have no effect on race relations? Is that really your hypothesis?

    Yeah, you're right race relations are exactly the same as in 1860.
