Interesting issue… Are black folks too sensitive? What do you think?

    Wow! Stephen A. sold black folks up the river for what? To be the accepted black guy in the room. I would like to say to man but what man who is proud of his race and his people blames them for giving voice to their hurt. Why can't we acknowledge our past?

    Black folks didn't create "politically correctness" in the media. Stephen A. should stick to sports commentary because he is not qualified or properly educated to give social commentary.

    I beg to differ. What Mr. Smith and so many others tend to do- is simplyspeak out about something in which they havent a clue about. Not even the example given on the subject do justice to the injustices people of African decent have overcome. The two mistakes often made when Slavery is discussed are:1. the lengths taken to accomplish slavery is under estimated, and 2. the ramifications of slavery is underestimated when considering the effects it has held thus far. Another form of disrespect to the slave and its decendents is the comparisons often made to this period and whatever struggle may be current, i.e. gay pride, fight for rights, etc. The period of time from beginning to end is beyond comparison to any event of status since its passing. While slavery and its brutality covered just over four millennia, the ideals and events that followed were all rooted within slavery. Today statistics are overwhelming w/ proof that what Mr. A. Smith says is crap,thepeople he criticized by name is crap, and anyone who says different can take the time to RESEARCH and I guarantee you'll find ample proof.
