“Get over it!” The N-Word Discussion

Ok folks, we’ve got to talk this one out. Although I can appreciate the fact that we can have these discussions, I’d prefer that they have some folks on who would articulate the problem well. Sheryl spoke her mind but Hill and Al were curiously silent. I’m sure a major part of it was simply the editing. What is NEVER brought up is the disparity in education. The perspective of one of the women on the screen was that Black people could do more if we just tried a little harder. This perspective is totally devoid of any sense of history or any respect for the effects of the Slavery Holocaust.

Black people on the whole are still 400 years behind in America, and it’s due to America’s failure to address the generations of brainwashing inflicted upon the enslaved.

How can a person try harder when as far back in his ancestry he can access his people have all been failed by the educational system, socially outcast, and denigrated. He doesn’t even KNOW to want more, or even have a good sense of what a good “MORE” to want is!

How can you vilify such a person?
