You can always rely on some things never changing, even during Thanksgiving. From the gift that keeps on giving … more defenders of Confederate heritage complaining that people misunderstand slavery …
I perceive that almost all Black folk, now enjoying an artificial privileged status, only want to talk about the past if Whites come crawling on their hands and knees begging for forgiveness for the past “sins of slavery”. I WONT DO THAT!
Now, I could be wrong about my perception but I think not. I for one am quite willing to discuss the issue as I am convinced I probably know more about involuntary African servitude than most of them and they could learn from those of us who do. But I bet that they think, in their arrogance, that by virtue of their race alone they know more, therefore hold the high ground.
To which another poster replied:
… what past sins of slavery are you referring to? Slaves had free housing, free food, free clothing, free medical care, free child care, free old age care, and free job training. All they had to do in return was work 9 hours a day with Sundays off to attend church.
Yup, it’s all about heritage, not hate. Of course, there may be a little fear there, too … for, as another poster notes elsewhere:
The Census Bureau has now fixed at 2041 the year when whites become a minority in a country where the Founding Fathers had restricted citizenship to “free white persons” of “good moral character.”
I guess some people are getting nervous.
