    Yes. With out a doubt.
    So you think that mentality could not be the residue of having your entire race subjugated for over 100 years?

    Why is it so hard to read for you? I am not blaming anyone, but I am saying that slavery did have a lasting effect on America's culture and the black people and their descendants. These lasting effects appeared in the former of Jim Crow laws to civil rights movements to finally integration. But as far as integration goes, the mentality that comes from decades of poverty and subjugation has seeped into a new consciousness among blacks in America.

    People not wanting to move up, people who revel in belonging in a group despite what the group gets into (why gangs are prevalent). There was a time where gangs were for protecting the black community against white people who were inclined to terrorize or intimidate them.

    That changed to gangs becoming some type of status of being "hood" which isn't a acceptable image today. This also goes into why violence runs so deep in black Americans. We are so mad at the world for our situations we often turn on our own people.

    But some of us are smart enough to make it out of the cycle and do something positive for our lives. I am an example, I grew up in the hood, some of my friends were drug dealers, I worked hard to get good grades in school, got a scholarship to college and here I am going into my second year at a college.

    But for some of us, we aren't able to focus on school well enough or have the support structure at home to motivate us to better our lives. I know so many smart people who fell into the fast money of selling dope and never graduated high school.

    That is because in the United States, Black people face more adversity day in and day out than any other minority race in the U. S. You face gangs, drugs, peer pressure, bullies, and all other sorts of craziness living in the hood. My mom even had her car stolen in front of her before.

    But because white people have majority always had an economic, structural, and environmental support that black will have, it was given the name of white privilege, which is just a two words for white people most of the time get better opportunities than minorities.

    That is what I have been trying to say this whole time. I am not blaming anyone, I never have been.

    You do blame the white man, and keep mentioning this mythical White Privilege. Like I have said before, whites aren't to blame for slavery. We're not the ones who sold our own people into slavery. Gangs, really? They are no different than terrorists. Whites have it much harder than any minorities these days. Our hard work is often overlooked because we're not a minority. If you say otherwise you're a liar. The Jews got over slavery and the Holocaust. I'm sick of blacks using that excuse.

    Not at all. Stop using it as an excuse. I'm sure that most White Americans today had no hand in slavery. So stop blaming us.

    Were you ever a slave? Were "your" people ever slaves? I seriously cannot stand when people use the "get over it" excuse when it's never happened to them. Besides that, can you say open and honestly that Jews have gotten over the Holocaust? If you can, then you really need to get back into touch with reality.

    Stop blaming the whites when it was the Africans selling the blacks. Yes, my people were slaves on one side of my family. On the other side we were discriminated against and the US tried to keep us out in the early 1900s as we weren't Northwestern Europeans. You should do your research before you try to criticize me there les. About the Jews, you don't see them robbing or raping Germans like you do the blacks. I can say that, for the most part, they have moved on whereas the blacks have not.

    What I am saying is stop blaming Whites for what happened, is that too much to ask? After all it wasn't us selling our own people into slavery... When do you ever see Jews raping and killing Germans? You don't. And i am not your "man," you can address me as sir.
