  1. Salam 2113, But, it's a paradox in a way, cause many rural areas don't want to be controlled by the federal government. They love their freedom. While that can mean they get neglected in a way, many rural folks pride themselves on being independent from government help. At least, they used to... Do you think that's changing? Yet again, they have more freedom in a way... and they don't want to be controlled by city people. Great point. Peace and God bless you
  2. Salam Gaius Caesar, Oh. Thanks for explaining. The USA was a lot different in that time than it is now, that's for sure. Thank God for all the positive changes!!! I do have to admit, I was worried that that the US would erupt into another physical civil war when Trump got elected. While there's sort of a cold civil war going on right now between the white supremacists and the culturally diverse, thank God it hasn't gotten to the point of where Robert E Lee found himself. By God's amazing grace, it won't. Peace and God bless you
  3. Salam Wmehar2, That's a nice sentiment that reminds me of the following video: However, whether other people like it or not, many people identify themselves by their ethnicity. How a person identifies himself or herself is not a problem; what is a problem is when people don't respect people who are different than them. For example, my friend who calls herself a "proud black woman" is not at fault for how she identifies herself. What is the problem is people who discriminate against her for her skin color. Out of curiosity, what do you mean by scream at the top of their lungs? Is that a literal statement? Martin Luther King Jr. gained incredible respect for his logic, nonviolence, firm stand, and inclusive beliefs. As far as I know, he didn't scream. While he had a commanding voice, he made it clear that he cares for all people, no matter their skin color. I think that's why the civil rights movement did so well during his time... because he encouraged all people to care for each other. Again, it really helps any civil rights case when those calling for change make it clear that they care for all people. MLK Jr's dream for example showed this: (I boldened some.) "I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal." I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today! I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of "interposition" and "nullification" -- one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers." http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/mlkihaveadream.htm MLK's speech is truly one of the most powerful in the history of mankind. Because religious views are diverse, there are different views even within each of the 3 monotheistic faiths. True. 100% agreed. True. Peace and God bless you
  4. Salam Hasanhh, Ah, you were educated in the South, hmm? Could the free black people who owned slaves vote in Georgia, Alabama and the one other at the time? And, could the free black people own white slaves? True, but white indentured servants isn't the same as enslaving the majority of another group of people with a different skin color. Interesting. Well, even though I'm a pacifist, I can understand that. Nobody likes being invaded. Peace and God bless you
  5. Salam Reza, I just wanted to address this real quick. Much of the reasons for the above is their fault. Many white people today are not having as many children as people of other groups are. That's not a forced population decline; that's because of other factors, though most especially free will and choice. There are some white men for example who are much more interested in porn and in not getting married than in taking care of a family. But, when that is coupled with fear about other people groups, including very prolific people groups, they blame other people instead of themselves. Oh, and add on to the fact that thank God, Jim Crow laws are gone now, and many white people decide to marry people of another skin color. This drives racists crazy; I know; I've been called a traitor to my "race" before for marrying a Latino. They hate what they call "interracial" marriages. Peace and God bless you
  6. My hubby and I live in Florida, and to me it's sad how much adoration Andrew Jackson gets. He is guilty of owning slaves and killing many Native people in the Trail of Tears. While definitely it's important to preserve and know history (including the good, the bad, and the ugly), I would rather not see any statue or pic of him, except for in museums and history books. Peace and God bless
  7. Salam Hasanhh, Nuh uh. My friends who are from minority groups don't believe all whites are guilty, though my hubby does like to tease me whenever a white person does something bad, but he's just joking. Well, as a feminist, I do have to say there are a lot of things I wish many white men had done differently, to put it nicely. Did you know I used to be so proud of being of English-Celtic heritage when I was a kid, cause I was taught that the sun never sets on the British Empire... I thought that was a good thing, until I learned how much harm the British Empire did to many people in the world. And yes, I blame the British men of the past for that. I wish they hadn't done what they did. Peace and God bless you
  8. Salam 2113, I don't, and I don't care! Lol :p Peace and God bless you
  9. Salam Gaius Caesar, I didn't know that. That's interesting. To be blunt, I've never been interested in trying to find positive attributes about the Confederacy or any of the Confederate leaders. However, it's good to know some positives about them, hmm? Did General Lee not want to be in the Confederacy? Did he want to stay part of the USA? Peace and God bless you
  10. Salam Notme, True. Personally, I'd rather have a statue of Frederick Douglass in my neck of the woods than a Robert E Lee statue. Of course, Confederates would want to shoot me for that, but I'm all for replacing some heroes with other heroes. Frederick Douglass is a hero of mine, whereas Robert E Lee isn't. Personally, I don't want to demolish Robert E Lee's statues; I'm fine with them being sold to people who care about preserving them or move them into museums. Hopefully, more and more young people will decide to replace statues of questionable heroes with definite heroes. And yes, I'm totally for taking Andrew Jackson off the $20 bill and replacing him with Harriet Tubman!!! Why hasn't that been done already? (i don't think this is an off topic remark because there is a new civil war going on right now... one where the culturally diverse are clashing with those who want to make America "white" again.) Our heroes need to be more culturally diverse, you know? Peace and God bless you
  11. Peace Brother Shiaman14, Awesome point True. That is very kind and noble of you, and is very much appreciated. However, it is important that white people who are not racist reach out and strive to rescue white people who are racist from the pit of racism. It's difficult but not impossible. Ignoring them or hating on racists won't rescue them from racism; in some cases it just makes it worse. Peace and God bless you
  12. Salam Shiaman14, Slavery is why. One of the reasons for the Confederates is the desire to keep their slaves, since slaves made rich white landowners' lives much easier. Concerning the statutes, I personally believe all Confederate statues and flags should be found in history museums. If all the citizens in the USA could vote on that, it would be interesting to see the results. In Trumpspeak, the Confederates are "losers." Why should their flags and statues still be up? Muslims can be diagnosed with a mental challenge as well. Mental challenges can be found in people no matter their religion or skin color, but some are not diagnosed by a medical professional. It would be interesting to know how many Muslims who have killed people and called a "terrorist" actually had a mental disorder, though one not diagnosed? Peace and God bless you
  13. Sounds like my parents and grandparents Definitely I wish that all the protestors against the racist rally had behaved themselves. White supremacists want people who oppose them to misbehave, get violent, and disobey the law. That's why it's so important to control oneself, even when angry. Peace and God bless

      Thanks Hasanhh :)

      Good to see you? How are you?

      Peace and may God bless you abundantly

  15. Salam Hasanhh, It's so sad that he was not reached with a message of love and kindness; instead, the Nazis lured him into their camp. Hopefully this motivates more leaders in communities to reach out to angry, confused young white men (some of whom have mental difficulties like schizophrenia) and encourage them into positive interests before gangs like the Nazis snatch them up for their own agendas. Peace and God bless you
