    -how do you know this based off of what exactly? you're just saying what you THINK or believe which is exactly that, what YOU think.

    -what does that question have to do with the article? are you implying that other people's ignorance like what you JUST shown is the fault of those who are the recipients of it?

    this is WHY sometimes i wonder about the concept of empathy. a lot of people can't relate to the PAIN or the STRUGGLES of what other people go through unless THEY experience it first hand where they can understand where people come from or why they are who they are. however, you don't need to go through some shit like that in order to be empathetic where you understand why someone would be offended @ your statement, david, where you would think before saying that shit. just like how you would be offended if there's gay guys in here shitting all over bisexual men, calling them cheaters and have the inability to be faithful to someone in a relationship due to their sexual orientation. you know it's not true so...


    No, what I said is that maybe the reason black people don't go to museums or galleries is because it's forbidden for them, just like the rest of the things on that list. That would explain everything.

    I liked the "while black" part of the title; makes it sound like it's a temporary condition.

    I can't stand the police, they hurt me really bad once and I never forgave.. anyhow. You cant expect justice if you are black, you cant expect to receive a fair trial if you are black. That is 1 of 21 things you get for it...

    Hahaha, once again a question indicating a lot of American gay white guy's obsession with black people (can't have the courage to have sex with them, but they control my mind, lol). I know that we are beautiful and I know that we are smart and I know we are good athletes and I know we are good lovers. But don't Americans find any other ethnicity as interesting as black African people? hahaha. I've been fascinated with some wonderful Asian guys, some wonderful Latino guys, even one awesome and sexy Arab guy. But I guess it's not the same with most white American gay men. The black folk are just so interesting to try and understand aren't they? Everybody else is probably pretty boring I assume compared to us? But thanks for the obsessive attention. It does make me feel special I must admit.

    You would think with all the black military vets, and decent pay, there would be huge campaigns to encourage them to take over the law enforcement arena in their major population centres. Seems like it would be good optics politically.

    Never forget who you are, and more importantly WHERE you are.

    The sheer animosity in this country towards young black males in 2014 is unimaginable. It's almost as if black lives hold no value in this country, it's sickening.

    Im surprised there hasnt been a huge exodus to more friendly countries, that is what it seems people from places that suck for them do. I mean on tv a lot of black usa looks really disturbing for them to have to live there. Im surprised there hasnt been a more organised call to leave, or more practically, try to organise certain areas to have the justice/cops/lawyers in a certain city to be all black say that could be arranged through strategic voting. A liberia /israel equivalent in detroit say (since it is vacant conveniently). It could be funded by the big names oprah, diddy, beyonce, etc, and be a shining light of how awesome black people can be, outside of the influences of history and oppression, they could sink or swim on real merit, then mentor other areas eventually. Worth a shot.

    Personally i cant figure out why most americans havent fled to canada yet, looks pretty grim down there.

    Incase I'm correct in thinking that you are misunderstanding the article. Those things on the list by the way aren't literally forbidden things African Americans can't do. It's all metaphorical to inform of what is happening for some/most African Americans in the USA. As for African Americans visiting museums and galleries, I have been to plenty in the US and overseas.

    REAL TALK: Why don't black guys wear flip flops or sandals? I rarely see them wear it, and when they do, they always have socks on also. what's up with that?

    I do wonder about other things, why white nations are wealthy, educated and developed while there is not a single predominantly black country ruled by blacks which is wealthy, educated and developed

    other than the usa of course.

    ---

    the real reason is that black people originate from countries without SNOW. If the sum total of the effort it takes to survive in a warm climate is walking to the nearest tree and picking off enough to eat, why would there ever be an incentive to do anything else? I mean that is the definition of paradise isnt it? Until they invented electrical gadgets you made a roof, and grabbed food off a tree, and sit back and relax. Add a few months of the year where you DIE unless you slave away the other 9, and you develop technology and culture pretty quickly. Otherwise you just be a beach bum til you die.

    Secondly, Africa, has a perponderance of pigheaded megafauna, in the entire continent, there is not a single large animal dumb, slow, or less dangerous enough to domesticate to do your work for you. It was even worse, they had goats, goats make you the laziest person on the planet, they arent dangerous, they herd well, eat anything, and give you meat and milk and cheese, you dont need another damn thing if you have goats. It really was unlucky for them. All other continents have a few at least. Those continents developed and came and used that tech to conquer all the black countries.
