F**k off, Academia. How about you check YOUR privileges? Seriously; you people who can get into university because your parents are rich, and you're bitching about being oppressed and being obsessed with safe spaces and all that.

Anyways, I definitely disagree with this "Professor". He's supposedly against racism, but this lumping all white people together is racist in and of itself! For the record, I do believe that bigots (especially rich bigots) should give up at least a good chunk of their money to some sort of charity and if said bigot is in an important and/or influential position (such as a politician, a teacher/professor, the CEO of a company, in the police force, etc.) then they should be kicked out/fired and be forced to work in a low paying job (like cleaning toilets or flipping hamburgers) because bigots don't deserve money and power! That said, this applies to ALL bigots, not just the white bigots. In other words, while I believe that Donald Trump should lose most of his money, be forbidden from owning business (and kicked out of the ones he already owns), and be banned from even participating in politics (much less becoming president), the same thing applies to this so-called "professor" as well!


I would rather live in a world where i don't have to be afraid that Some government Agency will Find my words offensive and choose to ruin my life. I prefer my freedom of speech thank you very much



Sure, Freedom of Speech is great and all, but unfortunately too many people abuse their freedom of speech by saying mean and hurtful things. Still, I will say that in my ideal world, there will be definite lines as to what is and what isn't offensive. That way, your life won't be ruined unless you really are a bigot. Besides, being a bigot is a choice. People say there is no way to get rid of bigotry, but there actually is. All you have to do is provide incentive to not be a bigot. After all, good people (non-bigots) need to be rewarded while bad people (bigots) need to be punished. If you want to keep your freedoms, then simply don't abuse them! Duh!

Albinos are the only people with no pigment in their skin, and they have to worry about getting eaten in Africa. Now albinos have to give away all their money to those who eat them too?

From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.

I want my check from the uk please

If you want what ancestors do to affect those who didn't commit any faults then go to North Korea, you will fit in great there. No respectable black person would want this. I know plenty of black people who make their own way in the world and succeed.

But a lot of white folks ancestors had nothing to do with slavery. Irish/Jewish/Italians, at one point, were pretty much treated like shit as well. Not as bad as slavery obviously....but there was a point where you'd see signs saying "No Irish/Italians Need to Apply'

My maternal great grandparents were fresh off the boat from Ireland(no seriously. My great grandpa/grandma came from Ireland.) My paternal great grandparents were doing whatever in Spain and Portugual. I mean, since I'm half Spanish, my side might've had slaves at some point, but this would've been in Europe. As far as I know, no one ever went anywhere on a boat. So I guess I'm good.


If I knew I had ancestors that owned slaves...I admit, I probably would try to get involved with something in regards to African American History. But...that's just me. And also, most people aren't going to advertise the fact that their families might've been involved.

dumb professor. what needs to be done is bring back the manufacturing job for making clothes, shoes toys, furniture, cell phones, computers, in general all the stuff we buy and raise the wages to $20 an hour. all those jobs would be enough to employee both skilled and unskilled blacks and whites.

next stop bring foreigners into country. Put a 100 year banned in both legal and illegal immigration.

next bring down the cost of living. rent is too damn high.


doing those 3 things at least would black people out a lot.

and what would help black americans out a whole lot would be for black males to respect and value black women. the crime, gang banging, and drugs, and shooting is mainly coming from black males. if black males would stop hating black women and would treat them like their queens and want to protect and make life good for black women. the black community would be heaven.

I am Celtic (Irish), Choctaw and Cherokee. I don't have any racial bias in me, treat everyone pretty much the same. I have had some "African-Americans" start ranting about "You White People". I usually just tell them what my heritage is, and if they want to they can get a book about the "Trail of Tear". After this, I am usually on much better terms with them.

One thing that always comes to my mind when I hear about the "White Folk" doing the slavery thing. Why aren't these same people ranting and raving and demanding repayment from the ones that sold them into slavery in the first place? All lot of the time it was an enemy tribe, their own tribes would do it to. And, I may be wrong, but wasn't it the Arab tribes back then that were doing a lot of the slave trading?

Sure, there were slaves all over this world at one time or another and probably still are.
The ancient Celts were not a very nice group either. Didn't read up on if they kept slaves or not, but wouldn't surprise me if they did.
Native American tribes would catch and keep other tribal members, but they were usually made to be part of their new tribe.

My point is, we as the people living on this planet need to get past this. We need to give everyone the opportunity to become the best they can in every way possible. Stop the putting of hands out demanding everything because you did "Put your own reason here".
