It might help if pinheads like you would stop making them stew in it every time they turn around. No wonder this country can't get past this issue, people like YOU won't let us.

Some People Just don't get it....The above transcript was from an AOL poster who I guess was disgruntled over some message board post that I posted in response to another AOL poster stating that Slavery is dead....The original poster also said that Africans sold us out and that we are to be at fault.....It is true that Africans did sell other Africans to be delivered into slavery but in no way are African-Americans resposible for the moral effects of slavery..... We know that slavery is indeed still alive and that it exists on every continent with the exception of Antarctica and this is that I informed to the original AOL message board poster......cper738816, the AOL screen name, had the nerve to lambast my AOL e-mail account and didn't even have the nerve to copy and paste the whole quote that I included in my AOL message board post...It was a quote from one of the Greatest men in the world....M.K. Ghandi.....

It goes as follows:
" Let not the 12 million Negroes be ashamed of the fact that they are the grandchildren of slaves. There is no dishonour in being slaves. There is dishonour in being slave-owners. But let us not think of honour or dishonour in connection with the past. Let us realise that the future is with those who would be truthful, pure and loving. For, as the old wise men have said, truth ever is, untruth never was. Love alone binds and truth and love accrue only to the truly humble."

As you can see I have a long way to go before I can ever become such a Great man as M.K. Ghandi.....But for now please don't be too harsh on me for wanting to slap the "ish" outta folks online....Sigh.....Life is full of setbacks----and online folks.....

WINNING AT ALL COSTS.....There is violence everywhere....We have so much violence in our lives---in our homes, on our streets, and among nations.....Young people most often learn (socialization) about history---and life itself---from a prospective of winning at all costs.....It resounds in our political and religious doctrines and is practically encouraged by religion...We stand in "shock and awe" as It takes a life of it's own when a person is allowed to take religious doctrine and instruction and turn it into their mein kampf, Turner Diaries, Jihad, or their own personal dark crusade...."An eye for an eye, and soon the whole world is blind"---Mahatma Ghandi

CLEAN UP ON AISLE 6.....Today was a beautiful day...I went to the supermarket today in my left-over BDU bottoms and a striped Mickey Mouse crop top accenting my new "belly kiss" belly ring....Well...I attracted half of the store's customers and all of the Black men in the store--Blacks only make up 6 percent of the population in San Antonio and less than 1 percent in my neighborhood...All of the Black men did triple takes as I made my way down the various aisles looking for pizza, iodized salt, salad, grapes and Texas ribs.....OK guys.... Damn!!! It is only a navel ring....Geesh!!! Then it happened---I dropped the bag of grapes on aisle 6....About 30 loose grapelets (Is that a word?) were running around on the floor each one like a damn Axis of Evil....."Clean up on aisle 6"!!!

EVERYTHING IS BIGGER IN TEXAS.....Shaking my damn head....Bigger is not always better....Only 5 states have higher poverty rates than TEXAS....The rate of malnourished Texans is the nation's third-highest....The national poverty rate is 11.6 but down here in the Lone Star State it is 15.1 percent....The national percentage of poor kids is 16. percent but in Texas it is 21.1 percent....Texas ranks number 1 in the nation when it comes to kids having no health coverage(and you wonder why Mexican immigrants crossing into the US border are nowdays bypassing Texas for States such as North Carolina, Georgia, Rhode Island and Connecticut--even they know Texas lacks resources). Texas is big on POVERTY, MEGALOMANIA and these big ass TRUCKS that nearly everyone in this state seems to drive....Shaking my FUCKING head....
