Do you always create threads with the specific attention of arguing (not debating) with someone. No one is ducking anything so stop trying to make something out of nothing. Ive done told you - tea and crumpets wasn't what awaited Caribbeans (Mainly Jamaicans) when they stepped out off the boat and the streets were not paved with gold. NO BLACKS NO DOGS NO IRISH is what awaited them and many Jamaicans went back to Jamaica.
I don't know who you think you are fam but you aren't Malcom X - I'll tell you that. Our forefathers are mainly from Jamaica and other parts of the Caribbean - were they not enslaved against their will? We are well aware that African Americans probably suffered the worst of the ordeal partly because their condition was sanctified by law. But we can't be here aruguing over who suffered worst - that is just foolishness, we all live at the bottom of the white mans society whether it be America, Australia or England.
Its a pointless and fruitless argument. Its kind of like people who say Englands ghettos pale in comparision to the USA's Ghettos but then someone from the poorest part of Africa will come to both countries and make the case that both of those ghettos pale in comparison to their own. Arguing over who got the best piece of trash when were all at the bottom of the pile.
You know what the problems will be - Isn't it said that when White America catches a financial cold, Black America catches pneumonia? Why do you think its going to be any different here? This may be a generalization but the majority of Blacks in the UK aren't even aware let alone trying to defend UK's corruption.
And for the record - i'm sure their are plenty of African Americans who make excuses for USA corruption. For someone who claims to know so much - you always seem to contradict yourself . Are you seriously going to try to paint African Americans as one politically unified group?
