I thought this was a good story but this struck me as these kids of people are the ones that keep racism going.

The part I thought was stupid for ANYONE to say was "And I most assuredly would have been a slave. As far as I'm concerned, that makes me black."


There are MANY dark colored people these days that could had been considered slaves WAY back then BUT A LOT of them are NOT black! Why do people still need to bring the slavery in to it? It is NOT a good reason to consider your self black just because of what MAY had happened in the time period of the 1600s to the 1800s.

  • Sweet, this guy was 43 LOL
    I agree with you tho. Wouldn't it be nice if the older generation just dropped this crap and let people be people, and to stop basing it all off skin color?
    Would be nice.
