  • I suppose "Black History" Just started in the U.S.A? Black history summed up.. 1. Blacks invented Slavery 2. Blacks Enslave Each other for 1000s of years 3. Blacks Enslave Whites (Barbary Slave Trade) 4. Blacks sell Blacks to whites 5. Whites enslave Blacks for a few hundred years 6. Whites Abolish Slavery and give some blacks freedom (Against most blacks will) 7. Black blame whites for everything

  • Reminder that MLK was killed when he was doing the Poor People's campaign. People claiming that MLK's goals were achieved are grossly misrepresenting what he stood for. He once said to Lyndon B Johnson: "I think one of the great tributes that we can pay in memory of President Kennedy is to try to enact some of the great, progressive policies that he sought to initiate." One of those progressive policies being universal healthcare.

Started: Hears An Idea Start With Building Black Character And Stop Blaming The White Man For You Not Brushing Your Teeth. Martin Luther King. Laid It Out In His Speech To His People. Start Teaching Blacks The Real Meaning Of Family. Joke Are Not Impressive Because Some Take It As Their Truth. His Name is Jesus. Trust Him. Read : Jeremiah Chapters 7 & 8 And 9. One Thing That Is Wrong In The Black Community Is The Lack Of Them God Fearing Grandmother. Hallelujah! Take The Word Racist Out Of America; It's A Very Bad Word, Used With The Intent To Do Harm.

  • i think that white guy was correct. the right to bear arms was intended to be a right for white men. if black people (he did not say slaves) had guns from the very beginning they probably COULDN'T have been made to be slaves.

  • Fake victims who think people who did nothing to them,somehow owe them something? Focusing on their "blakkness" and race,and projecting this on anyone who is a specific color? Assuming all whites are raycistttt? I'm sure MLK would be ashamed of these self serving professional victims,who care about themselves only,and couldn't care less about slavery...

Yea and dems really care about the ilkegal babies thats why at the same time they are pushing for abortion up to birth , bunch of brain dead clowns being fooled and used like retard tools . What a fucking embarrassment! Helping the dems bring in the new world order , idiots lokk what open birders has done to Europe dumb fucks , well that will be hard for you to do , you dont even know what the fuck us happening here . woke hahaha yea idiots that think there are more than 2 genders are woke , woke in a fucking nightmare !
