    Maybe he has forgotten that this country was built on the backs of slaves that had No incentive but to live and work day after day until death. I don't call looking for peace and joy in the afterlife any incentive to work as a slave at all. Does he think we really want to go back to that?

    Whites will think differently of you whether they outwardly show it or keep it deep inside (aka subliminal). They may get close and claim they feel you but on the real they (the ones trying to be all close to you) still have those deep seeded notions of blacks that occasionally show from time to time. Not saying that anyone is inherently evil but the facts are the facts and when it comes down to it if it was to the point (ultimately choose a side type of a thing because ish is about to really go down and no turning back) of us against them you better believe they (at least very close to 100%) will revoke any feelings they had towards us. To be honest everyone should know this as the human race is tribal in nature from the immediate to the extremities. The further away you are from someone's self the less they care about you and that is fact.

    Yes, there are a few... very few exceptions, but I do not feel the need to write a book on small complexities that everyone should be aware of.

    The European alone is tribal. The African, for better or worse, can oversee 'tribe' for truth.

    I.e. in traditional Africa, any starving person can expect to be fed by any household she visited, and any visitor to a city can expect to be unmolested regardless of the conditions of war. For better or worse . . ..

    The link to this article didn't work for me, so I searched for it. Unfortunately, it appears that the article may be fake:

    http://www.snopes.com/politics/romney/blackcommunity.asp

    Mitt Romney: I Can Relate to Black People

    Did Mitt Romney say he 'can relate to black people' because his ancestors once owned slaves?
    snopes.com


    I.e. it's alleged that the this is a false rumor started at "Free Wood Post"

    http://www.freewoodpost.com/
    Free Wood Post
    freewoodpost.com


    This site is essentially like the Onion in that it makes satirical articles.

    I'd hate to be the bearer of bad news in light of fallacious accusations (of my character). Yet in our quest for African liberation I find that we must only use the truth--for the truth is already replete with weapons against Europeans and Asians.

    I think that this use of "humor" reveals the European's nature and I hardly doubt that ire should be aimed at each European. But I'd encourage reluctance to anyone citing the article as evidence. (Un)Fortunately this is not a large loss as the truth already evinces European and Asian injustices.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    .......If the link concerns the initial post, it works... Romney was in Alabama, supposedly:

    Mitt Romney was addressing a crowd in Prattville, Alabama this past Monday when he stated:

    http://www.politisite.com/2012/04/1...-black-people-my-ancestors-once-owned-slaves/

    Mitt Romney: I Can Relate To Black People, My Ancestors Once Owned Slaves

    In yet another seemingly faux pas moment for the former governor and presidential candidate, Mitt Romney tells a crowd of supporters in Alabama that he can relate to the plight of black individuals…
