    I’m not sure how important this is, but Helen Thomas died earlier today.

    Funny in a negative sense: ” A black man and a
    hispanic man get into a fight. Everyone blames
    white people.”

      I read somewhere in the last few weeks that Caucasians, as a race of peoples, have held less slaves than any other race on earth. Funny how our ancestors never get any credit for ending the African slave trade in the western hemisphere which was largely driven by west african tribal wars and Dutch traders after a quick profit. As a matter of fact, almost every advance by the negroid race can be attributed directly to the white man’s influence on them. They probably would not have survived famine and disease in large numbers anywhere on the planet if not for the charity of the white christians of the USA. I’d say we’re owed a pretty big thank you. I’m not holding my breath. ;-)

      Due to mitochondrial DNA examination and based on that evidence alone, it appears that man started leaving the African continent some 80,000 years ago.

      When the Romans were inventing concrete, building aqueducts and roads, coining money, using sewer systems, the African natives were throwing spears at each other.

      The Dark Ages Followed. And the Crusades. Then came the Renaissance. While Europe revitalized its culture, developed higher math, pondered the nature of the physical world, explored to other continents, the African natives were throwing spears at each other and living in mud huts.

      During the Industrial Revolution when steam became the power to move a world, Europe became a monumental force, an economic giant and developed technologies that allowed humans to continue to grow, examine and learn. The African native? Mud huts/spears.

      Nations were built; Not without serious conflict, going all the way back to Roman times but during all that, Europe spread out and its progeny went and found new worlds to inhabit and one, in particular, to build a nation that did away with the shackles of previously inefficient and failed governmental systems.

      Tribal warfare and mud huts continued to be the state of affairs on the African continent.

      In the first half of the twentieth century, the descendants of Europeans built incredible machines, harnessed great power, built large structures that dwarfed anything previously done and then, in the second half of that century, went to the Moon.

      Today, you can find the descendants of African tribesmen who can trace their lineage back to 80,000 years ago, still living in the same general area of the African continent, living in their mud hut, with their spear hanging on the wall. They still fight tribal wars, still hate one another over territory and “honor” issues.

      My point? Aside that man is inherently violent, something is different from the African-based people who left, and who stayed. If it’s in the DNA, so be it. If it’s something else, I’d like to know that too. But either way, Mugumboo Malalllalalalala wasn’t going to build a steam engine or an airplane or a water vessel bigger than a dugout canoe.

      I don’t really care why. It’s just an observation. Today, tribes on the African continent are still hacking each other to bits with machetes. I won’t mention the curious parallel between that and young blacks killing each other in the US for …well….basically the same “reasons” such as they are. But I will again restate the observation that somehow, the Europeans had a different kind of ambition that their African continent ancestors.

      This is why I can write this on a laptop and transmit it to the entire world in seconds, instead of giving it to the tribal elder who will then give it to the guy to pound it out on a hollow log to transmit it to the next village.

    • Rusty, that was wonderful and spot on. Now, run away and hide. They’ll get you for that recitation of Truths.

    • Here’s another interesting fact: George W. Bush saved more African lives(1.1 million deaths averted) with US taxpayer funded AIDS prevention drugs than the number of African slaves that were shipped to the United States of America (388,000 according to Henry Lewis Gates).

      But when Bush, in Africa to open a womens health clinic recently, granted an interview to ABC’s Jonathon Karl, Karl spent 6 minutes of the braodcast 10 minute interview asking questions about Obama. Anyone suprised?

      Agree with everything you said noyz… but just for future reference is “c’est la vie”, “that’s life” in our words… yes the French have funny spelling

      Now Obama is saying that Zimmerman should have retreated.

      It’s possible Obama watched the entire trial as some did on his trip to Africa where he had to have George W Bush come and join him to help with the hard feelings Africa had against him or so that George W Bush could explain to him how to communicate and what things had already been done.

      But, I doubt he did and doesn’t understand the girlfriend testified that Trayvon Martin had told her had reached his father’s apartment and the call ended.

      And if Obama saying Trayvon Martin could have been his own son, Obama is now saying that he could have been Trayvon Martin.

      I’m not sure if that was to be vein that he might not have become our savior. If his mother had chosen not have a burden turned over to his grandparents because according to his own admittance at the age of 9 he was becoming violent and compassionate.

      The only big problem I know of was some white boys at his elite school teasing the only other little white girl and child in his school that she wanted Obama for a boyfriend. They were enjoying each others company until the boys starting the normal teasing that goes on at an early age. So, imagine this quiet shy little black girl being bullied by a gang of Obama and his friends and Obama throwing her on the ground. Luckily she got up off the ground and was able to run for her life and safety.

      Oh. And Obama asked how the verdict might have came out if Trayvon Martin was white.
      We all saw OJ Simpson get off from murdering his white wife, because of another biased judge who would not even allow past convictions of him beating her, nor her diary and pictures she took at the police station.

      So, at think our leader is preoccupied with this matter and enjoying the riots he encourages.
