Do you ?


Are you really sure you aren't a troll? I have to hand it to you, usually they're pretty obvious to pick out, but you've played your part exceptionally well if so.

I certainly don't have a minor in African American history (or a major, for that matter) and I don't doubt your knowledge in the area but could you please provide some evidence that African slaves "hid" their intelligence from their captures or/and masters?

My 'people' have a history of slavery too. But if someone told me that the Irish slaves had to "hid" their intelligence from Cromwell and his minions I'd call bullshit.

This really. I don't think just the early English settlers or the African slaves built modern-day America. People like the Italians, Irish, Jews, Germans, among other immigrants also helped shape the United Sattes into what it is today.

Damn, the Chinese are getting shafted here. They help build the trans-continental railroad. Now THAT'S building.

Re: Did black slaves "build the USA" ?

This guy is a really successful troll, even if a poster like mrgagentleman provides facts for the OP he's doesn't even recognize, acknowledge or try to refute those claims. He's just picking the lesser arguments and doesn't want to rationalize at ALL. Also why wouldn't a slave owner be afraid of a slave who could read or write? What would stop the said slave to forge documentation that allowed him and others freedom? The less one learns the more complacent they become.

I honestly don't care to. I'm not going to type all of the shit I've learned throughout the years in a troll thread.

Re: Did black slaves "build the USA" ?

No. I think he has a dissenting opinion to yours, OP, because of a feeling of oppression. The American Revolution wasn't fought by African Americans. English men who migrated over sought independence from the colonies, not slaves.

As far as slaves building the infrastructure of the US (talking about railroads, segments of civilizations, making contributions to society in the form of inventions, etc,.), I highly doubt that as well. They mostly were limited to work around the house, plantations, or in industrial plants from what I've read over the years.


A$AP

Ok well then I guess those countless examples of slave intelligence that you alluded to will remain forever hidden !
Just as well, truth be told, I don't particularly care to engage females in rough debate anyhow.

I'll chose what and who I reply to and who I do not, if you don't mind.
I generally won't respond to someone who begins posts like "BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! & OMG "This is hilarious.
Absolutely hilarious." ect.
Shows a real maturity level that I would expect a proven asshat like you to identify with.
This isn't yahoo teen chat, and rather than indulge people with a passion for flames and bickering, I simply ignore them like the children that they are - And you are 1 step away from exactly that.

From what I seen, he backed up his ludicrous contention that "blacks built America" by saying that they taught us the fine art of growing rice, and also an early example of piracy, for which blacks today are notorious for.
Sorry, I'll need a little more than that before I come around to change my views.

mrgagentleman, you start acting like an adult and phrase your comments in a mature fashion, I'd be more than happy to counter your views with facts.
I am not going to respond to something that starts out ""BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA", simple as that.
You wouldn't do that in real life, I don't think, so don't do it here.
If you were a man, you'd simply admit that you were wrong.
Blacks did not build America, sorry.
You people tend to believe your own hype, and think that repeating a lie long enough is going to make it come true.
I for one am not going to give you a free pass while you insult and demean my ancestors, who really did build this nation.
Blacks were, with very few exceptions, 0 skill menial labor who indeed did contribute to the overall economy of the country with cheap labor.

OP sounds like the type of people who absolutely hates being told that they are wrong.
