Come on Justin.

"Other people did it too" is irrelevant

Irrelevant I sense accusations of only one people "Americans/Colonialists"

I am just saying.

I adhore slavery and find it disgusting, but just to blame one country the US when other countries have done so in the past and are doing it today?? Whats up with that?

Does that make it less of an evil?


Also Mrs. S post was about slavery in America, so your history lesson is really off topic.

Not really, because remeber the Dutch traders, french and british brought them to America.

Slavery is Evil. I spoke to some friends today about what This person said. And they agreed with him. They need to get over it, that was the past, were living in present times, where slavery today consists of asian woman being imported from asian countries to pleasure men.

Sometimes past is present Justin

Would you ever tell a woman who was raped to "get over it", just to give one example?

No I would not. But seriously, you hear about it, and do we as peope care? No people go on with there lives and say the simple words, "thats terrible."

Also since this is a World Board. Why is it always "Pick on America" when European countries contributed, African countries and Arab Countries. And Yes Asian.

What's your point? It was still Africans being enslaved here in America, right?

Do your friends think we live in equal times? Do your friends think there are no repercussions of slavery? Honestly?

They said there is still racism, but anyone can be racist, not just white people.

Ummm Slaves went to the carribean, Central and South America The middle east not just America.

Sometimes you say the most awful things, do you honestly think MrsS doesn't care if someone gets raped? Horrible.

We're talking about an American politician. Justin, stick to the subject.

1. I did not say anything awful. I said people in general would read about it and forget it the next minute. It's human nature.

2. What if Bill Cosby said that? So him saying that automatically makes him a bad person?

I did answer your question to the most part. Of course there is a difference between the past and present. Should we focus on the past, or should we focus on the present and fix it?

Why the head bang. If your going back to the past, you have to realize that mean ol America wasn't the only one importing slaves.

The incident happened in America Justin, that is the point and that's why we need to discuss slavery in America . It has nothing whatsoever to do with "picking on America".

Like I said, sometimes past is present. Slavery is over, but discrimination and prejudice is so very alive and well. Should African Americans just "get over" that too? Slavery in a different form is still slavery, ever think of it that way?

And no I don't ever move on and forget about rape, please don't even go there.

But don't all races discriminate against each other? I was watching the news and this whole Hispanic population explosion. Some hispanic autobody owners refuse to serve black people because they think there criminals, is that not racism or discrimination. An Arab Janitor who worked in the building I used to work in hates black people and wants them dead and wished hitler killed them like he did the jews?
