Q: Are there any upsides to being a slave?
Muhammad Rasheed - Yes, there is one major upside: You don’t have to pay your worker a salary.
You can’t under estimate how potent a wealth-building tool that is. That’s the cornerstone of where the obscene great wealth of Western Civilization came from. It’s also why the dominant political identity group is reluctant to stop exploiting & plundering the Black American former slave class.
Stephen Chase - That's funny slavery still continues in Asia, Africa and parts of Islam. Rowanda didn't out law it till 1981 but you still want to play the poor boy after almost 170 years of freedom in the USA and every possible advantage 60 years of affirmative action has given you. We've had a black President and a black woman Vice-president and black people who come to the USA from Nigeria do excellent even better than most whites. The ONLY people who can't seem to succeed are black people born here. You're a victim of yourself🤣😂😁

Is it? Your entire response is composed of fabricated nonsense and partial truths your identity groups tells yourselves to justify your foolishness. It doesn’t mean anything to me.

So? I’m a US citizen. What do the greedy decisions of world leaders in rival sovereign nations have to do with me?
Stephen wrote: “and parts of Islam.”
Al-Islam is a religion composed of the Qur’an and the way of the unlettered Ishmaelite Muhammad (peace be upon the prophet) whom I follow. There is no part of that religion that endorses slavery. Again, what individual sovereign nations decide to do on their own turf has nothing to do with me as a US citizen. You seem really confused.

Mississippi didn’t outlaw slavery until 1994. My dad was born in Mississippi. I win the date duel, I guess.
Stephen wrote: “but you still want to play the poor boy”
My ethnic group has been deliberately locked out of the wealth-building ownership class because the white identity group has refused to share wealth, land & rule with the former slave class. This has forced us into an artificial impoverishment and is the nature of US race relations.

2022 - 1865 = 157 yrs.
What arithmetic are you using?
Stephen wrote: “and every possible advantage 60 years of affirmative action has given you.”
“Affirmative action” isn’t what you think. As originally written in the bill, it was a small act designed to provide the poorest Black Americans on-the-job skills in white-owned businesses, but no white business owners would agree to being the guinea pig in such a system where if they were forced to fire the experimental workers the full hammer of liberal politics would blame them for any deficiencies. So, instead, they only hired Black people who were already skilled, thus defeating the whole purpose of the program. Also, like many other social programs developed at the time, none of them were the much-needed targeted policies that Black Americans specifically needed to be made whole — all of them were in the general “war on poverty” category which enables all groups of Americans to take part, which they did in numbers far exceeding Black American numbers. “Affirmative action” has never been a “black advantage” despite the mythological-based rhetoric in the partisan sphere, but only a way to give whites more gibs.

We had a biracial Kenyan-American who hated my guts and gave whites and “POC/BIPOC” immigrants gibs.

You mean a brahmin Indian who willingly received kickbacks from corporate for anti-Black convict leasing fraud. Both of those two pandered to my people for votes and did literally nothing but patronize me like you are doing here.
Stephen wrote: “and black people who come to the USA from Nigeria do excellent even better than most whites.”
The 1965 Immigration & Naturalization Act only allows upper classed educated Black immigrants over specifically to counter the 1964 Civil Rights & 1965 Voting Rights Acts. This country is pro-immigrant and anti-Black American.
"One day, I saw two Africans go in with robes and turbans [into a whites only establishment during jim crow]. They couldn't speak English. I heard the manager say, 'Let them in. They're not Negroes.' Something's wrong that I can't assess — I'm Black and they're also Black (they're not blue!) but they went in." ~Muhammad Ali

We are literally being sabotaged because our foes are genuinely evil.
Stephen Chase - Even if the truth hurts your feelings it's still the truth. I can understand why you don't want to except the fact that all your problem are your fault and not anyone else. If you look it up you will find out Mohammed (Sbuh) owned slaves and that Islam has been the biggest supporter of slavery in the last 1400 years. I know all about your religion 😂 I can certainly understand why your having trouble after your rediculous comment. You belong to the ONLY group that can't succeed in the USA everyone else can do it literally every other group can out shine you.
Muhammad Rasheed - Stephen wrote: “Even if the truth hurts your feelings it's still the truth.”
Of the few partial truths I found in your silly partisan rant, none of them were actually relevant to me as a US citizen. So, why would my feelings be hurt? In what way?
Stephen wrote: “I can understand why you don't want to except the fact that all your problem are your fault”
Some are my fault (we should never, ever turn our backs on your group, nor believe you when your lips are moving), but the rest is 100% your fault.
Stephen wrote: “If you look it up you will find out Mohammed (Sbuh) owned slaves”
uhhh… If you look it up, you will find that the prophet freed his few slaves when he received his prophethood commission and famously adopted one as his son. I would expect you to have zero idea of what I’m talking about.
Stephen wrote: “and that Islam has been the biggest supporter of slavery in the last 1400 years.”
The religion itself does not support slavery, it’s greedy sovereign governments who’ve allowed it, just as the USA continues to allow discrimination against my ethnic group despite them knowing better.
Stephen wrote: “I know all about your insane religion”
lol Clearly not.
Stephen Chase - I truly feel sorry for you, I really do. Peace be upon you. I'm out.
Muhammad Rasheed - You were out before we began, bud. May the Lord thy God have mercy upon your greedy, racist soul.
‘Tis doubtful, but He might.
