Thomas, your note to Farrisha is full of hate and lies! I believe you are guilty of "Blind pride in one's race always inhabits clear reasoning." as much as anyone else! So, now you want to steal the credit for ending segregation in the South! My goodness, is there no end to the need to dominate and control others?
I believe it's true to say that black folks love people (including whites) more than they love themselves. Blacks pose no threat to anyone on this planet...yet are hated by many. Why? I'll tell you why...envy and jealousy. We are the "Royalty of Humanity" and we possess the greatest land on the planet, Africa. Yall want that and you hate it when you see us do well. You want to BE us, which is why you claim our contributions. You want to look like us. You want to have the "soul" we have. Our mere presence (i.e. see Samuel Clemens/Mark Twain's writings) is cause for you to be ashamed of yourselves.
You have no good reason to hate us. What did Africans/Blacks ever do to harm any nation? Throughout history you find us taking civilization to others around the planet, in China, in Asia, in Europe, in South America, in North America, etc. The fact is because of our righteousness and respect for life, we make very easy "marks" for the wicked. But, don't be deceived by this, because God is real as African sages have setforth and in time all will recognize the truth.
