Mr. Culpepper,

Stop fooling yourself! Black Americans and White Americans are racially two different people. This country of the US A totally and completely belongs to White American people. I know this for a fact since all 56 of the signatures to the declaration of independence were White Americans. I know as well that the declaration of independence is equivalent to a deed and title a home or land.

My point is that Black Americans can never rise in White America’s country. Black Americans can only rise in our own country. I cannot rise in another man’s mansion. I can only rise in my own mansion.
I don’t think what I said is so difficult that you can’t understand it! So again, stop pulling yourself and think analytically and rationally. Black Americans are the most ignorant people in this country.

Harry, I disagree. Blacks can and have risen. The examples are too numerous to list here. Remember Jesse Jackson saying, "Your attitude determines your altitude!" Stop spending all your money trying to be accepted and save some for your own empowerment. Stop waiting for someone to accept you and accept yourself. A young white toddler called me a "Neegah" recently at a restaurant in Texas. I didn't get mad. It actually sounded kind of cute the way he said it. Being called uneducated and broke is much more insulting to me than a mere word. Since I am neither one of those things, "Neegah" didn't bother me. Now, on the other hand, my siblings who are not as calm and cool as I am, would have used the opportunity as a teaching opportunity for both the child and his parents, where the police would have been promptly called and someone would have ended up being tased. LOL Seriously, I hope my siblings would have adhered to their home training and not make a scene (but I doubt it).
