    start... For some reason I feel very sad by your post. Why do you feel it as a personal attack when the facts of our country's sins are expressed? Yes we have come a long way but we still have a ways to go. And although you, your family and a lot of people have risen to the occasion, the truth sometimes cannot be suger coated to make you feel more confortable. Stop taking it so personal. I say this as an African American who has had to stop taking a lot of things personal. It only saps you of the positive energy that will serve you and everyone around you better.

    •  Because it's *always* about white people for most (0+ / 0-)

      white people. Part of that is the reason some of them need someone like Obama to answer for every Black person who's ever done anything wrong ever.

      Now watch what I just wrote be taken personally and painted as a broad generalization when I clearly said "most" and "some" and clearly not "all".
