Bullshit. If WE as a people are oppressed then WE as a people can not be a powerhouse. You can make up stories in your head all you want, but it is NOT possible. You belittle what truly oppressed people in this world and down through history when you spout such foolishness. An oppressed "people" have NOTHING. PS Where did that $1 Trillion dollar come from?

Dictionary.com Click. Read. Comprehend the meaning of what you're talking about BEFORE you open your mouth and let all manner of ignorance fly out of it, please. Being "oppressed" has NOTHING to do with "HAVING" (or NOT "HAVING ") a damn thing.
