I was on a race relations board, and you would not believe, what this white person said.This person is saying it's African Americans fault for the raping of slave women.This person said that because African Americans are mixed with the perpetrators, it is African Americans who are the perpetrators.
"those are your analogies, not mine. My point is that chances are your great great grandfather raped your great great grandmother. Chances are your great great grandfather owned your great great grandmother. Who said she was a willing party? Only you. Still, you would be decendent of both...with the seed/genetic heritage, social heritage of both..not just the slave victim but the slave owner rapist perpertrator. So, the culpet(sp) and victim lay within your own ancestry, and not the ancestry of most white folks in the USA today. Unless the person is British, chances are the white persons ancestors never had any part in slavery.
The whole topic/gripe is what the big bad whites did to blacks... Or rather what the big bad whites ancestors did to the blacks ancestors.
One should say instead...*my own anstors did this to my own ancestors*, and leave the whites alone given mosts' ancestors had nothing to do with it.
And so the statement.."chances are if you are black that your own ancestors had a part in slavery more than the white you are yelling at over slavery."
to go to the site, go to www.about.com and go to the race relations forum... I do not have the link...
