    This exchange occurred after Freeman said, "Black history is American history."

    It really is that simple.

    I agree, but this problem is the Rev Al and Jesse Jackson's keep fueling the fires of racism.

    Amen!!!!!!

    Both of these yo-yos and their staff would go on food stamps sans the racial problems they create & then offer to solve. (Sounds just like the gumment do it not - create a problem & then create a dept to solve it!! :tongue3:)

    Sharpton, et al would never agree. They know these distinguished gentlemen would make mincemeat of them.

    What a difference a year makes. Bill Cosby isn't looking so distinguished right now.

    And this thread shows just what's wrong with American Christianity. Because white people who fancy themselves as Christians believe the problem with racism is that folks like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson keep talking about it.

    And according to Morgan Freeman, wonderful actor, but bisexual and leaning toward atheism, if we just stop talking about it, it will go away.

    Absolutely ridiculous even as the lot of you chimed in agreement.

    Race issues in this country and around the world have always been an issue of the heart. And as long as folks think it's just gonna go away by not talking about it, it shall remain.

    It's a shame that even God's people think that talking about race is the problem. Why do even "God's people" leave Him out of the equation?

    So why a Black History month? Perhaps one of the reasons is the absence of Blacks in the history books of America other than to show them as inferior.

    So should we talk about it, to not ?

    I know what your answer is already. White people shut up and listen.

    Black history month IS ridiculous. Even if a straight white man says it.

    zaac is also ridiculous.

    You're a joke.

    Black History month. No need to make a new thread when Rev already had one.

    You're too lame to be a joke.

    Then stop talking to me.

    And you should stop blaming Mitch for your posts. It's like he's an idol of yours, or something.

    You're senile or something. I'm not talking to you. I'm typing on a keyboard. :laugh:

    Like I said, senile. I didn't blame anybody. I said he started the thread so there was no need for me to create another one.

    SO technically , YOU blamed him by trying to blame me.

    Catch up.

    Now be gone before someone drops a house on you too.

    Sharpton just had a debate at Oxford but I have not heard the results of it yet. Actually, Sharpton was saying that he would only give a set speech. I don't think that Sharpton is very sharp.
