Racism has to last forever...There are too many organizations and people depending on it for money and power. When we create a white organization then they will talk about the need to close racist organizations.

Within his own lifetime, a black skin ceased to be a curse and was accepted as normal by the great majority of Americans. Such an opinion is founded on nothing but a childish desire to jump the line and get a seat in a crowded theatre. But of course he is right in this respect: people usually prefer those with whom they have much in common. I prefer my brother to my cousin, my cousin/friend, to a stranger, a handsome stranger to an ugly one.

Going by the level of physical assaults, rapes, murders against white people, black people are pretty darn racist themselves and more guilty of hate crimes. So ol Derick and his ilk can drop dead. Every black person here should be overjoyed his ancestors paid his dues via slavery or else they would be living in Africa. Every year the “racist” USA gets thousands of legal and illegal African immigrants. The traffic is one way...no one immigrates from the USA to Africa

One poll watcher called police after he reportedly saw one of the men brandishing a nightstick to threaten voters.

As I walked up, they closed ranks, next to each other,” the witness told Fox News at the time. “So I walked directly in between them, went inside and found the poll watchers. They said they’d been here for about an hour. And they told us not to come outside because a black man is going to win this election no matter what.”

He said the man with a nightstick told him, “’We’re tired of white supremacy,’ and he starts tapping the nightstick in his hand. At which point I said, ‘OK, we’re not going to get in a fistfight right here,’ and I called the police.”...”

Racism is a politically correct assumption in our socio-political evolution. If you want to know about racism , just ask a African. They have traditions that are “billions” of years old which they continue right to today. One of those traditions is genocide. Its not country specific, it is clear across Africa and Africa is HUGE!

For a Harvard professor, he’s not very bright: If racism is permanent, all White’s will forever believe he’s got a low IQ, and therefore we won’t believe his stupid pronouncement that racism is permanent.

Bell: USA Must Admit We're Permanently Racist

Throw your brain in the trash can for half a minute and go with that premise.

What's the point of trying to do anything about racism if it's permanent? Elsewhere Bell said that racism is what stabilizes our nation. Even more reason to do nothing about it. Bell says racism can't be changed and it's actually good for America. So, let's celebrate racism!

/end Derrick Bell brainless thought experiment

“Derrick Bell: “Racism is permanent”

By “racism” he means any action or belief by whites that blacks dont like.

And it is a given in his warped mind that blacks are not ever racists nor can they ever be.

Including this black speaker,Khallid Abdul Muhammad, Nation of Islam leader,openly expressing his hatred of whites that many blacks evidently feel, at a speech at Kean College in Union New Jersey in 1993 to a cheering and applauding black audience.

Quote:

We kill the men!

We kill the women!

We kill the children!

We kill the babies!

We kill the blind!

We kill the crazy!

We kill the cripples!

We kill the faggots!

We kill the lesbians!

I say godamn it we kill them all!

(cheers and applause!)

If they are white kill them all!

(cheers and applause.)

Why kill the babies? They are just innocent blue eyed babies?

Because goddammit one day they will grow up to rule your babies!

Kill them now!

Why kill the women?

The women are the military manufacturers. Every 9 months they lie down on their backs and reinforcements roll out between their legs so shut down the manufacturing system.

Kill all the white women!

Why kill the elder crackers? The old decrepit white crackers ?

How do you think they got old? By killing and oppressing black people!

Kill them all!

And after you kill em all, go to the grave and dig them up and kill them again because they didnt die hard enough!

(Cheers and applause.)

Great quote.

Cone has also admitted that black race hatred against whites is universal but that this race hatred is somehow “not racist”

Evidently plenty of black criminals are taking Cones words to heart:

To: dennisw
African tribes have been genociding each other for millenniums

When will these African nations ever apologize or pay "reparations" for slavery? Better yet, when will they end the practice?

Slavery in modern Africa

Slavery in Africa continues today. Slavery existed in Africa before the arrival of Europeans - as did a slave trade that exported millions of sub-Saharan Africans to North Africa, the Middle East, and the Persian Gulf.[1] However, slavery and bondage are still African realities. Hundreds of thousands of Africans still suffer in silence in slave-like situations of forced labour and commercial sexual exploitation from which they cannot free themselves.

Modern-day enslavers also exploit lack of political will at the highest levels of some African governments to effectively tackle trafficking and its root causes. Weak interagency co-ordination and low funding levels for ministries tasked with prosecuting traffickers, preventing trafficking and protecting victims also enable traffickers to continue their operations. The transnational criminal nature of trafficking also overwhelms many countries’ law enforcement agencies, which are not equipped to fight organised criminal gangs that operate across national boundaries with impunity.

Slavery by African country

Chad
IRIN (Integrated Regional Information Networks) of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reports children being sold to Arab herdsmen in Chad. As part of a new identity imposed on them the herdsman "...change their name, forbid them to speak in their native dialect, ban them from conversing with people from their own ethnic group and make them adopt Islam as their religion."[2]

Mali
The Malian government denies that slavery exists, however, the slavery in Timbuktu is obvious. Slavery still continues with some Tuaregs holding Bella people.[3]

Mauritania
A system exists now by which Arab Muslims -- the bidanes -- own black slaves, the haratines.[4] An estimated 90,000 black Mauritanians remain essentially enslaved to Arab/Berber owners.[5] The ruling bidanes (the name means literally white-skinned people) are descendants of the Sanhaja Berbers and Beni Hassan Arab tribes who emigrated to northwest Africa and present-day Western Sahara and Mauritania during the Middle Ages.[6] According to some estimates, up to 600,000 black Mauritanians, or 20% of the population, are still enslaved, many of them used as bonded labour.[7] Slavery in Mauritania was finally criminalized in August 2007.[8] Malouma Messoud, a former Muslim slave has explained her enslavement to a religious leader:

"We didn't learn this history in school; we simply grew up within this social hierarchy and lived it. Slaves believe that if they do not obey their masters, they will not go to paradise. They are raised in a social and religious system that everyday reinforces this idea.[9]"

In Mauritania, despite slave ownership having been banned by law in 1981, hereditary slavery continues.[10] Moreover, according to Amnesty International:

"Not only has the government denied the existence of slavery and failed to respond to cases brought to its attention, it has hampered the activities of organisations which are working on the issue, including by refusing to grant them official recognition".[11]

Imam El Hassan Ould Benyamin of Tayarat in 1997 expressed his views about earlier proclamations ending slavery in his country as follows:

"[it] is contrary to the teachings of the fundamental text of Islamic law, the Quran ... [and] amounts to the expropriation from muslims of their goods; goods that were acquired legally. The state, if it is Islamic, does not have the right to seize my house, my wife or my slave."[12]

Niger
In Niger, where the practice of slavery was outlawed in 2003, a study found that almost 8% of the population are still slaves.[13] Slavery dates back for centuries in Niger and was finally criminalised in 2003, after five years of lobbying by Anti-Slavery International and Nigerian human-rights group, Timidria.[14] More than 870,000 people still live in conditions of forced labour, according to Timidria, a local human rights group.[15][16]

Descent-based slavery, where generations of the same family are born into bondage, is traditionally practised by at least four of Niger’s eight ethnic groups. The slave masters are mostly from the nomadic tribes — the Tuareg, Fulani, Toubou and Arabs.[17] It is especially rife among the warlike Tuareg, in the wild deserts of north and west Niger, who roam near the borders with Mali and Algeria.[18] In the region of Say on the right bank of the river Niger, it is estimated that three-quarters of the population around 1904-1905 was composed of slaves.[19]

Historically, the Tuareg swelled the ranks of their slaves during war raids into other peoples’ lands. War was then the main source of supply of slaves, although many were bought at slave markets, run mostly by indigenous peoples.[20][21]

Sudan

There has been a recrudescence of jihad slavery since 1983 in the Sudan.[23][24]

Slavery in the Sudan predates Islam, but continued under Islamic rulers and has never completely died out in Sudan. In the Sudan, Christian and animist captives in the civil war are often enslaved, and female prisoners are often used sexually, with their Muslim captors claiming that Islamic law grants them permission.[25] According to CBS news, slaves have been sold for $50 apiece. [1] In 2001 CNN reported the Bush administration was under pressure from Congress, including conservative Christians concerned about religious oppression and slavery, to address issues involved in the Sudanese conflict.[26] CNN has also quoted the U.S. State Department's allegations: "The [Sudanese] government's support of slavery and its continued military action which has resulted in numerous deaths are due in part to the victims' religious beliefs." [2]

Jok Madut Jok, professor of History at Loyola Marymount University, states that the abduction of women and children of the south by north is slavery by any definition. The government of Sudan insists that the whole matter is no more than the traditional tribal feuding over resources.[27]

It is estimated that as many as 200,000 people had been taken into slavery during the Second Sudanese Civil War. The slaves are mostly Dinka people.[28][29]

Child slave trade
The trading of children has been reported in modern Nigeria and Benin.[30] The children are kidnapped or purchased for $20 - $70 each by slavers in poorer states, such as Benin and Togo, and sold into slavery in sex dens or as unpaid domestic servants for $350.00 each in wealthier oil-rich states, such as Nigeria and Gabon.[31] [32]

Ghana, Togo, Benin
In parts of Ghana, a family may be punished for an offense by having to turn over a virgin female to serve as a sex slave within the offended family.[33] In this instance, the woman does not gain the title of "wife". In parts of Ghana, Togo, and Benin, shrine slavery persists, despite being illegal in Ghana since 1998. In this system of slavery, sometimes called trokosi (in Ghana) or voodoosi in Togo and Benin, or ritual servitude, young virgin girls are given as slaves in traditional shrines and are used sexually by the priests in addition to providing free labor for the shrine.[34]

Ethiopia
Mahider Bitew, Children's Rights and Protection expert at the Ministry of Women's Affairs, says that some isolated studies conducted in Dire Dawa, Shashemene, Awassa and three other towns of the country indicate that the problem of child trafficking is very serious. According to a 2003 study about one thousand children were trafficked via Dire Dawa to countries of the Middle East. The majority of those children were girls, most of whom were forced to be sex workers after leaving the country. The International Labor Organization (ILO) has identified prostitution as the Worst Form of Child Labor.[35]

In Ethiopia, children are trafficked into prostitution, to provide cheap or unpaid labor and to work as domestic servants or beggars. The ages of these children are usually between 10 and 18 and their trafficking is from the country to urban centers and from cities to the country. Boys are often expected to work in activities such as herding cattle in rural areas and in the weaving industry in Addis Ababa, and other major towns. Girls are expected to take responsibilities for domestic chores, childcare and looking after the sick and to work as prostitutes.[35]

Their tradition goes on right through to today. Just on a lesser scale. Look in Ivory Coast, Liberia, Nigeria. In Liberia? There was a Joseph Doe a crahn man who took power. Subsequently Charlie Taylor and his men targeted crahns for killing. Pregnant women were cut open with machetes just so the child warriors could win a bet as to whether it was a boy or a girl. This was as recent as 2002. Sometimes they would have another woman make soup with the child. Nasty.

I heard he was a general in the Liberian army who unsuccessfully tried to knock off Taylor and so Taylor targeted the Krahn. At least that's what the Liberian Krahn folk I know told me.

I think Doe took power the traditional way.... with a gun... and became president in the early eighties. Maybe we both should google...

Go check out youtube and you can see kids running with a heart wanting to cook it ups.... actually there are some raw heart fans there. Savages.

Vice guide to Liberia is pretty good too.
