What is this, we all suffered thing. Whites are responsible for most sufferings on earth, and this is not only historically speaking but presently. I live on an Island with a handful of whites and they manipulate the politics by financing the most ignorant Indian and African 'leaders' who forever have Indians and Africans at odds with each other. While the Indians and Africans squabble the whites continue to live large.
Most people don't take time to examine the darn thing. The day honest people get in power most of those white elite might end up in Jail for money laundering and drug trafficking. The way the news is presented you would swear that little black people are the worst criminals ever. Who do you think could be behind these 100 million dollar drug shipments, certainly not the little people on the streets?
All of us suffered in some way but the telling effect of Racism is the continuing black nightmare. I hate to see whites talking to blacks as if they are helping to prepare them for luxuries in a mythical heaven while most people are living in a real hell and the elites live like lords here on earth.
This situation can be different for people in other countries with a different racial mixture, but I am almost certain that white people are there most times behind the scene pulling the strings.
That is why the empty 'one love' talk is important to so many, instead of working for a restoration of equal opportunity. One love is truly the lazy man's ideal, for me I will settle for respect and equal opportunity. Only when that is reached we can move on, for now one step at a time.
As Akinkawon stated in a previous post, when I was small they taught me we were all born in sin but as soon as black people started showing whites the sinful nature of their colour schemes suddenly we are not responsible for what was done in the past.
Hypocrites! Many whites darn well don't mind living off the benefits of a legacy of white superiority but then they don't want to accept the responsibility of dealing with the toll it takes on other people.
You all can continue teaching blacks to put these issues aside and prepare for Heaven.
