And why the blacks are disrespecting those that died for them? And why the blacks are not following the path to responsibility of caring for themselves and their families? And why the blacks have the audacity to believe that the whites should help them one iota more? Including the money stolen by taxing from the whites and accepting this stolen money by ‘welfare’? And why the blacks do not repay the whites in REPARATIONS for the deaths of all the whites in freeing the blacks from slavery?
please do not stereotype anyone
I’ll try to break this down for you…
":Why do the American blacks not have a holiday honoring the 370,000 whites that died freeing the slaves?":
I think the bigger question is, if you’re so concerned about this, why haven’t American Whites created a holiday honoring the White abolitionists that died to help free the slaves? Surely White people should be proud to celebrate their fellow man, just as they do many other days during the year.
":And why the blacks are disrespecting those that died for them?":
1) Who says that Blacks are ":disrespecting": those that died for them?
2) How do you figure that all Black people do this?
":And why the blacks are not following the path to responsibility of caring for themselves and their families?":
Just the Blacks, eh? Why aren’t members of any race here in America ":following the path to responsibility of caring for themselves and their families?": Black people haven’t cornered the market on broken families and fatherless households, you know.
":And why the blacks have the audacity to believe that the whites should help them one iota more?":
Sure, it’s true that some Whites have helped Black people. But for the most part, we’ve had to help ourselves. And for every White person that helps Black people, there are other Whites who do the exact opposite.
":Including the money stolen by taxing from the whites and accepting this stolen money by ‘welfare’?":
Numerically speaking, White people who live in the suburbs or rural areas receive the most in welfare benefits in this country. A little research goes a long way.
":And why the blacks do not repay the whites in REPARATIONS for the deaths of all the whites in freeing the blacks from slavery?":
Okay, so wait…let me get this straight. So you’re saying you want reparations for the deaths of White abolitionists from the Black descendants of slaves that other White people owned? Forgive my language, but that’s just a.ss backwards. That reminds me a lot of the story I heard about a guy who shoots someone who’s robbing his house, and then the robber later tries to sue the homeowner who shot him. In both cases, the logic makes absolutely no sense. If anything, it sounds like the descendants of White abolitionists should be trying to get reparations from those who have direct ties to slavery as well – lol.
Overall, it seems to me that you have a problem with making a lot of assumptions and generalizations. You also appear to be employing some very faulty logic. In the future, I’d advise doing a bit more research and actually thinking about what you’re writing. Otherwise, you’ll come off as an idiot at best and a racist at worst.
Just my two cents.
Simple answer from a fellow white. The Civil war was not about freeing the slaves at all. It was about an Agrarian region in conflict and threatened by an industrial region.
The war was fought over state’s rights and trying to keep the
union together. Mid way through the war, seeing there was trouble getting northerners to enlist the slave issue was then thrown in as emotional appeal to justify the horrific loss of life and encourage more recruits from New England who really didn’t like to join the war the war.
Much of the racial hatred and tension erupted during the Reconstruction Period which shows that there was never any organized plan or feeling towards the freed slaves. Furthermore, if the War had really been about slavery, it was then the most senseless waste of life in modern history because within 1 generation, or 30 years of the war’s end, heavy mechanized industrial equipment became the norm from the steam shovel to power tractors which could do in one day what a thousand men could do in a month. An average male slave cost around $1000.00 or $30,000 in today’s currency and surely the tiny percent that had them would have replaced them in that time frame.
ps – Oh yes, the point is the blacks have little or nothing to honor.
This is abolutely ridiculous. Reparations!? For what? Because 370,OOO whites died to free the slaves? Blacks aren’t any less humans that whites. You act as if Blacks owe something to a superior or as if they did something wrong. Many whites in the U.S.A. had nothing to do with the slavery since many Europeans didn’t even come the U.S.A. until after blacks were given freedom. I think you are racist, and you expect respect just because you are white and have white ancestors that may or may not have died while fighting for the North in aboloshing slavery. Many blacks died also, and you don’t see blacks asking whites for reparations for the way they were treated from the time they were sold into slavery all the way until the 1960’s Civil Rights. You are delusional. They owe you nothing.
Roughly 70% of European Americans in this country came here during the 20th century and have nothing to do with slavery, the civil war, reparations, etc. They are not involved at all, their ancestors are not involved at all… and they should be left out of it completely. They are not responsible.
There are many white people and hispanic people who are on welfare. and fyi, free black people was the least of the reasons that white people fought in the civil war. it mainly had to do with money and politics as always. and the civil war didnt free black people in any sense of the word. What about the lynching campaigns, not allowing balck people to vote, and killing black people who had learned how to read. that is not free. There are many white people who are irresponsible and dont care for their familys and white people are not at the historical disadvantag that black people have. i feel bad for you. you sound very unintelligent. it is people like you who cause racism to continue in this world.
So a handful of whites died. Over a hundred million blacks died for WHITE PEOPLE you ungrateful ()! How the hell you think you got tax money to talk about? Black sweat and blood you cruel minded man! Peace.
the slave traders – took the blacks from their homes
the slave owners made the slaves work for free…
the slave owners had sex with the slaves also…
this is our countries history – but its a history of greed….
I’am a white guy – black men and woman and children built half this country…the other half was basically built on cheap cheap immigrant labour…the irish and italians and germans…
but once again greed….
stop fighting each other…greed is killing everyone
You cannot be serious. I agree with simmons,you need to do some reasearch because u obviously haven’t and sound like an idiot.
What 370,000 whites? Surely you’re not talking about the Civil War lol
stop, go back and do more research, they do honor those who did contribute to freeing each other. start with Kennedy, and so forth.
