Re: Lies and Misrepresentations About the freedmen

Good morning, Apache Kid...

And yes indeed some of everybody's ancestors should be held accountable for their role as regards the enslaving of my and others folks ancestors...

But at least some descendants of africans and whites are at least able and willing to admit those past wrongdoing...

One or two African countries are also offering free land to any descendant of african slaves able and willing to actually do something with it...

Instead I have to be very forgiving (if no forgetting) of the bullheadedness of those other mixed bloods (as in white and indian) who either refuse to acknowledge the past wrongs done by some of their slave owning ancestors but also tried to act and react like it was no big deal!

They are like the Afrikaaners who dared to believe their own alleged or real subligation, i. e., when the white british descendants defeated them during a bloody war over which bunch of white settlers should control the vast resources of a black (as in somebody else's) country, i. e., South Africa...

And in the late 1940's a weak willed english speaking white minority caved in to the german speaking one too...

After that came the pass laws ad naseum...

But who invaded whose nation in the first place?

My and the and more to the point:

One thing to have empathy and sympathy for the victims of those forced removals years ago:

Though quite another for some to presume and assume they were and are like the ancient Jews being forced to wander in the wilderness until they found the Promised Land...

And if exile from their indian ancestors was that tramatic?

Contrast that with my own who've had to endure both thru slavery and segregation!

What they also refuse to face up to (in spite of their forebears having taking on the means and ways whites used to sustain and support themselves as well) that GREED BREDS STUPIDITY, and as that current resident in the white folks big house also said:

"You're either one of us...or..."

FYI...

Later...

Peace...
