Today's racism can be best defined as anti white. This is merely part of the anti white movement. Now apparently our history is under fire.

No matter how you slice it, slavery was another form of a holocaust. White racists don't seem to understand why this picture is offensive to the descendants of the victims. This picture should be removed as it is in bad, no terrible taste.

NAACP has to earn its keep and they are too inept to deal with REAL issues! Black murders, crime, poverty rates, drop-out rates etc might take some actual WORK!

personally, what I dont need is the NAACP or some agitator from the KKK in the great state of Georgia telling me what history means. Deal with the problems of today and stop picking at the scabs of past history. Move on, and get current. The problem with hate is it is contagious.

Race baiters like Obama, Sharpton, Jackson have always used their own stirring the pot for a fat wallet and power. At least Jessie Jr is in prison. Now with a true racist couple in the White House, White hate is hitting an all time high encouraged by ObumO. "Travon could have been my son" What about the 500 a year gunned down in Chicago? Too Black to care about them? Hollywood Barry didn't care about the dope dealing,gun running,street thug Travon. It was about gun control and racial division. "Never miss an opportunity". What a disgrace for America this Chicago punk agitator that is further dividing the country and turning back the clock on race relations. By accident? inept? inexperienced? BS! Part of the plan since day one. Most ObumO fools have never had the self respect to thoroughly research Barry and the Mooch. They fell in love with the image. The fools don't understand their total background of hate for America and Whites.

There was nothing wrong with slavery if you were not the slave. History is fine and everything historical is fine unless some part of our citizenry finds it offensive. Would these fine upstanding citizens find a portrait of Adolph Hitler acceptable? He was part of history. Is that the benchmark?
