Black argument: "Slavery, segregation, killing and unjust treatment by whites
White argument: "Some slavery, black on white violence, discrimination in other countries"

In reality, no black person living (on the most part) has experienced slavery or segregation. No black person I know has ever had that done to them, and no white person been the slaver. Stop bringing it up. I didn't do it, you didn't experience it, I heard a black person ridiculing this walk white people in this town do: they dress as slaves and get "owned" by a black person, he ridiculed them because they didn't do it in the first place, why should they be sorry? If we were still blaming races for things, every German would still be called a Nazi, and so on...

You do realize that integration began in the 50s, right? Not only is your statement incorrect. Segregation is keeping people separated based on race or some other defining characteristic; just because it was outlawed doesn't mean that it stopped existing. You make sweeping statements when you can't back them up.

haha I would be in some deep **** if we would be judged by stuff people of the same "group" did throughout history because I'm:
white - oppression of blacks and colonisation and the slaughter of natives
german - holocaust
male - oppression of women
straight - oppression of gays
christian (not practising but born as one) - crusades, inquisition

Every race has a group of arseholes.

Why the **** do people keep saying that? No blacks today weren't alive during slavery but many (like my grandfather) experienced plenty of racism growing up in the 30's and 40's. He as well as my aunts and uncles remember segregation and all of the hate.

So? I went to a school full of Indians and all the whites there were definitely treated much worse and discriminated against. You just proved my point "My grandparents", not you, so you have nothing to complain about, you didn't experience it, I didn't do it, my point exactly. And also, in Britain the racism was no where near as bad as in America...

"So?" You dumbass, you said no black person living...his grandparent is still living, so there's the point of that comment.

I agree to an extent but unlike Christians and the Inquisition there are a ******** of blacks who were alive and experienced institutionalized racism. It cuts deep plus When grandparents and parents tell you about it that's pretty close and stories have an effect on you.

So that gives you special privileges and excuses and so called "positive discrimination"? It still wasn't you. Sure it hurts that it happens, but it isn't anymore. I have nothing to be sorry for, and you have nothing to be angry for. I know people who survived the holocaust and are ok with Germans, I have an uncle who is black and was killed because he was black. **** happens in the world, but if never learn to forgive and forget, especially the descendants of those who did it, we'll never move on and forever be in this cesspit full of hate and misunderstanding.

Wow you are projecting so hard right now. I won't blame you for blindly repeating your fellow funnyjunkers. I said nothing about unfairness or special privileges AT ALL. I was simply explaining why race is such a sensitive issue. Go back and read my comments.
User avatar #97 to #94 - ctenop (07/02/2013) [-]
I'm not blindly repeating them, it's my own view. I may of misunderstood your comments, but maybe you should be clearer, and not point the finger. I don't think race is a sensitive issue at all. One of my best friends was Jamaican, he always joked about the KKK, being black, as does one of my black friends now, as well as a chinese friends other ethnicities

If you were to look through my pictures I have posted several watermelon and other black racist jokes myself.

It doesn't matter if you or I think it's a sensitive issue. IT IS A SENSITIVE ISSUE. Simply put....not enough time has passed especially the effects of racial subjugation can still be seen today.

Why should it be a sensitive issue? That just highlights it, be open about it. Where I go college we have a boy with a crippled hand, a few races, people with both mental and physical disabilities, some severe. None of these are treated sensitively, because they accept it. We each have our own view, but from nearly everyone I've met, race and any other character defining character is part of them, and something to be happy about.

Let me clarify my position.

1. I don't really care about internet black jokes. I have favorited many.
2. I do however get upset when funnyjunk gets on a black hate tirade over black people and the n-word.
3. I simply explained why (and understandably so) blacks gets so upset over it

I'm not condoning the witch hunt of people like Paula Deen but people act suprised when people get upset over race. There were still lynchings throughout the southeast going into the 60s and 70s. Not to mention to vagrancy laws that were in place to intentionally place blacks in prison to be put in work camps

As a note, Germans do not like being called nazi. Don't do it. I did it. Don't do it.

I once called an Italian I know a fascist, he thought it meant Nazi and flipped his **** :L
