Black people are just born to be used and abused by everyone else on the planet in any they so choose. The dark skin and hair of wool just gets them a life-long ass whipping. They scare everybody and everybody HATES them including hatred from each other, so it seems. Doesn't seem they're capable of defending themselves from anyone including each other. We're just humanities' foot wiping pad as we go down the path of life. We're a sorry lot.

Corporate Slavery By Mike Schelstrate For centuries, the ruling elite worldwide have struggled with determining the optimal method of obtaining necessary labor from the lower classes at the least cost in order to increase their power and profits. In the era of European royalty, the peasants provided the labor required to maintain the economy.
