What does being Black in America mean to you?
I am descendent from Africans who were brought over here unwillingly, made slaves, beaten, hung, castrated, tarred and feathered, raped-both men, women and children. Sold away from families like dogs, called names and treated like sub-human. Etc, etc, etc. I just happened to be born in AmeriKKKa.
If you think racial inequality exist what do you think we can do about it?
Sonny, I'm sorry to say I don't think it can be fixed. It's been going on since slavery and nothing has changed or gotten any better. Yes, blacks can vote, eat in white folks resturants, drink out of white folks fountains, work beside whitefolks who don't really want us there.
Martin Luther king couldn't change much, he was murdered because he wanted everyone to be equal, Malcolm X fought for equal rights, murdered because that's not what the white folks wanted. Medgar Evers murdered for the very same reason, equal rights for all. The KKK, the Skinheads and all other anti-black groups have been around forever and as long as their hatred for non- white race's exist, then racism will exist.
You can try to educate and talk to the racist but to no avail. Hatred for minorities has been around since the beginning of time. It can't be fixed unless we can get rid of the racial, hateful anti-black, evil, dangerous hate groups, racism will be around until the end of time. White Supremacy is what they want. Other races are beneath them. I just don't see it in the future.
This is 2016, we have a black POTUS, for the last 7 1/2 years he and his family has been so ridiculed, disrespected, talked about, called a monkey and other worst names by racist, evil people. If they don't respect the head of our country, they surely won't respect us common folks. Trying to stop racism is a lost cause. That's just my opinion.
