I would hope so. What's your point?

Do you have a reading comprehension problem? You said the ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY ignored blacks. In a lifetime of idiotic statements, that one is up there in your top 300, somewhere.

Nope. A people with no power and none in sight pose no threat. Go spout your looney theories anywhere you wish.

You really have a comprehension problem, don't you? It's rather sad. Anyway, I'll explain THIS to you as well - I never said we should be proud of our news. I said they have to keep up an APPEARANCE/FACADE/FRONT of professionalism.

I didn't. Once again you are either purposefully twisting my words, or once again you have trouble understanding complete sentences. I said that taken in socioeconomic context those figures argue for NEITHER black inferiority OR superiority.

Yes, that's unfortunate. People didn't have even a rudimentary understanding of sociology or psychology back then, and unfortunately the majority of the world felt this way. It's sad, but that's the way it was. Perhaps it's time for me to use the excuse that you use to excuse Elijah Muhammad's racism - "he was a man of his time" - LOL. Anyway, didn't Muhammad believe that white people were "devils" who were "evil" and "inferior"? Wasn't your argument that those beliefs didn't mar his other "accomplishments"? At least be consistent, sugar. Anyway, Jefferson was a brilliant writer, philosopher, and politician, and a brave revolutionary who changed the world. Please name one of your forbears who has had any such impact.

Defeating the Nazi menace in WWII. Establishing the first Republic since pre-Imperial Rome. Creating the most prosperous nation on earth. Giving billions of dollars in aid to African and other thirld world countries - which they hijack and squandor. Providing billions in famine relief all over the world. Accepting millions of immigrants from all over the world - including Africa - who somehow seem to come here and prosper better than the minorities who already live here, interestingly enough.

Perhaps if blacks weren't so over-represented, we could solve this problem.
>Yes, to you it's silly because this has nothing to do with
It's silly because it's stupid.
>Go do your own homework. Ever wonder why the Middle East,
>along with the rest of the world, wants to fry our ass?
I don't need to wonder. It's because the American military has a presence in the holy land of Arabia, and because of our asinine support of Israel. Mostly.
>wonder why Palestinians, post 9-11, paraded in the streets
>with Osama's head printed on their shirts?
I already answered that question. It's not racial, it's religious and political. You are such a stupid fucking retard that you think everything revolves around you and your little crybaby bullshit. Suck it up. They don't give a fuck about you.
