As a white/registered american indian, I am tired of hearing I owe another race anything. I never owned slave, my family never owned slaves. I am an Irish American foremost. Which means that we were worse off in the north during slave days than many blacks. Despite this, I do not hearing the Irish community asking for handouts at every corner. The upcoming generation has a great chance of removing all of these historic combats agianst each other. People like Bill Cosby should be listened to, instead of being insulted. We are a now a country, not a country divided by race.

One of the main problems is that our society has become infested with the Liberal feel-good mentality. It's easier to call yourself a victim of oppression, than to take responsibility for your own choices in life.

It's easier to blame "rich, racist white men" for all of one's sufferings than it is to accept responsibilities for your actions. Our Liberal media and politicians cater to these individuals, by reinforcing the notion that those who are successful must have gotten their through the exploitation of others, rather than through hard work, an education, and determination.

And hey, I think America has come a long way indeed...it was the Americans who formally denounced slavery, whereas even in Africa to this day, there are still slaves. Funny how "racist white men" in America treat minorities better than the countries from where these individuals originate.

Why should I pay for something that my 4 times removed grandfather may have done, to? And who should I pay, the 4 times removed grandchild. I never owned slaves, And no one alive today was a slave (in america) so what entitles them to anything?
