    She said it was built by slaves. She should have said slaves helped build it. It was never taught in school. Can you name one slave that worked on it ?

    But it was not built only by slaves.

    He didnt say he wanted to hit them physically.

    Historically slavery has been the norm until recent times. The last country in the world to abolish slavery was Mauritania in 1981 believe it or not. But it is and has always been an abomination.

    You are right. It's those darned radical Islamic fundamentalists again terrorizing the innocent population.

    I know I'm right. Look it up. But Blacks never mention today's black on black slavery. They are too busy whining about 150 years ago.

    What a load of crap. Lets put it another way. If you lived in the times and had the means chances are YOU would own a slave and not give it a second thought.

    No, I heard of it. Its on the news all the time. But that's not legal country sponsored slavery. But hey, that's what you get with illegal immigrants. Obama has let millions of illegals in. And Hillary wants to let millions more illegals in. Vote for Hillary if you like this form of slavery. :wink:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery_in_Sudan

    " According to reports of Human Rights Watch and others, during the war the government of Sudan was involved in backing and arming numerous slave-taking militias in the country as part of its war against the SPLA.[1] It also found the government failed to enforce Sudanese laws against kidnapping, assault and forced labor..."

    If the US fails to stop people from killing other people does that mean that the US supports murder ??

    Michelle brought it up as part of her steady assertion that America is racist and don't anyone forget it. Like her first day, when she said it was her first time to be proud of our country. She's just sick.

    However, has anyone ever considered what this constant racist diatribe of Michelle and other black leaders and Hollywood does to the minds of little kids? What if everything we learned in history or saw in movies or heard mentioned by leaders were unrelenting graphic details of daily rapes of women. Don't you think it would impair the self respect, self esteem and empowerment of generations of young women?

    I put forth that the liberals are deliberately doing the same thing to the self esteem of the black population in order to suppress them and make them feel hopeless and dependent on the Democratic leadership (even though MLK himself was a registered republican). Repeatedly, slaves are depicted as beaten and raped and denigrated. The fact is, it didn't happen 100% of the time by 100% of the slave owners. Some slaves were educated, learned valuable skills such as science, record keeping and mathematics, earned freedom and rose to prominence. In light of all that was wrong in the 10 centuries where enslavement was the norm around the world, why not embrace the positives and hail the courage and successes rather than exaggerate and regurgitate the negatives.

    Slavery was legal in the Untied States before the war, during the war, and on the day the Civil War ended. Those are the facts.

    Or perhaps not as bad as some who still like to capitalize on it and claim personal grievance?
