Reply to "Black Folks: It is Time to Lay Down the Mantle"

quote:
Frenchy ...

I guess it is easier for someone who was able to choose to come here and follow their dream of making a better life for themselves and their family to accept their role here and that of others like them in enjoying the benefits of someone else's sacrifice ... than it is for some of us who had no choice than to be here, had to fight for our acceptance and still cannot find respect for simply wanting a good and/or better life for ourselves and our families, in exchange for our sacrifice. But I really wouldn't know.


Every human being on this planet is enjoying the benfits of the sacrifices of those who came before us. It is not as if immigrants come to this country and immediately move into some kind of lush life. We've made and continue to make a great deal of contributions to African America and faced and face a great deal of odds not only from white people but also from Black people in this country. The White Man does not care if I was born in another country or if my family's been in the US for 10 generations. I don't get a pass. And neither does any other immigrant with brown skin.
