Correct....and the slaves were sold into slavery by Africans.


Doesnt really matter who started it, a load of countrys did it, its what we do in the future that is important.

The Scottish lad brought up slavery...not I.

AS i aid in a previous post, the small percentage of this kind of American is sadly the loudest and most heard. Which is a major reason why people hate the USA.

I kind of don't like the USA because it has screwed up values. Not because of the people. The people are terrific. Just not their values.

[QUOTE="woody998"][QUOTE="LJS9502_basic"][QUOTE="jointed"]

hmmm....and you yanks wonder why we think you're ignorant?

No other country in the world offer the same freedoms as America.........? Every single country in Europe has the same amount if not more freedom than the US....

The british tried to suppress religion? That's why their national anthem's name is "God save the Queen" ?.....

I don't think people should take you seriously

LJS9502_basic

One.......don't generalize Americans. Two....the reason the Puritans fled England for America was religious freedom. Look it up. Not to mention that depending on the religion of the monarchy...Anglican or Catholic....the other religions were persecuted....back in the early days. Look that up as well.

Kinda hard not to generalise Americans in a thread like this, look at the original post. The Purtians fled England for Aemrica for religeous freedom.. hmm would that be about the same time that the black slave trade was going on in America?

No......America wasn't settled then. Second, the UK was involved in the slave trade as well.

So, it still happened, it dosent matter when. And im not claiming the UK has freedom like no other.

[QUOTE="liquid_s"][QUOTE="The_Best_GS_Fan"] Terrorist RAPE land, they believe in a pagen god, they don't believe in Jesus Christ, they don't believe in Adam, they are brown, they wear turbans, they live in mud houses, they don't have WiFi, they have all the oil, they want to DESTROY America.V4LENT1NE

So...they are evil cos they wear turbans and are brown? I see, so terrorists are never white? People who believe they are doing whats in their countries best interest (even tho is wrong, I am not saying that) are always black? I see. Some land of free you live in, your just a racist!

No dumbass, white terrorists are called Freedom fighters or the Irish :D

Dont call me dumbass. Yes 'freedom fighters' is the kinder namer given by the country of origin, to which they fight for freedom, as terrorists. The attack on the Twin Towers, or on London, was in some Afghan eyes, an act of freedom fighters, but to us its a act of terrorism. I apologise for the examples, but they are the most famous ones recently.

Infamous dumbass, they were infamous and no those attakcs weren't the acts of freedom fighters, freedom fighters RE-act not provoke.

So the American goverment has never done anything to Afghanistan? Huh? I believe they were reacting!

reacting to what what did we do in afghanistan that would provoke a terrorist attack? why didnt they attack Russia then since Russia invaded afghanistan.

Because, America holds the bigger threat in the world!

imo if china got its groove on and gets battle ready it can take usa on

China wouldnt stand a chance against the US, it would likely take Russia, China, and a few other European countries to hold us down, im not just saying that, im saying from what ive seen.


Have you seen all of China fight all of America or something?

no, but i have seen the way the chinese train and the ways we train, and chinese technology and AMerican technology, in all cases our military is superior. and in no way am i saying America is Invinsible because we're not, im saying it will take more than China to bring us down. Mainly because no other country has the Power projection capability of the US and no one comes close


You just sounded a little over exagerated, "it would likely take Russia, China, and a few other European countries to hold us down", US is powerful, but not that powerful, they wouldnt dare want to make any of them angry.

ill put it like this, our power Projection Capabilities, meaning our ability to deploy and remain a presence across the world is greater than that of any country in the world. I will say that it would be a struggle for the Chins going against the US. ill put both military of the US and China up. and no i dont get all my info from wikipedia its just easier to explain information.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/US_military
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_Military


Yeah I wasnt really talking about that though, no doubt US has the upper hand against someone like China, but Russia, China and other country's JUST to hold US down...........thats a little far.

Perhaps, we will never know until it happens and it likely never will, so i guess we never will know.

They also believe in a pegan god... ...what kind of god tells people to suicide bomb?

What kind of God sent people on Crusades?

Arabs were stealing the land from the Jews when that was going on... ...we had to save our holy land from Arabs. We believe in the same God as the Jews... ...we were HELPING during the crusades.

But, you do know that many times during the Crusaders, the soldiers of 'God' slaughtered innocent lives, for no apparent reason

They might have been suicide bombers... ...we had reasons.

Reasons. Go on.

Again, the Catholics had to protect themselves from the suicide bombers during the crusades.

Suicide bombers during the Crusades. You are the stupidest person I've ever met.

You sir need to learn to respect others. Calling me stupid for a fact is degrading and uncivil. You have no claims to back up your words.

So far you havent shown much respect for anyone...

They should let them have their own country that's completely cut off from the rest of the world so they can buttF%^# all they want and eventually die of AIDS. So then there'll be no more gay people!! BOOM problem solved. HeadHunter123

And??? No one denies it happened.  However, you were using it as an excuse to put down the US....when many countries were involved in the same trade.  In addition, slavery had existed in many cultures throughout history.  This was not an isolated case. 

As well, I've never claimed the US has freedoms like no other....your point???

i hate when people think muslims are terrorists

if i am a terrorist, how come none of you are doing anything about it??

oh because i am not

islam is not about terror

thats like saying christianity is all about making a jewish holocaust, killing off the native americans, the spanish inquisition

is it?? nope........

i respect all religions, and  disregard that small group of people that taint it...........

you honestly think that i believe all christians are the KKK? or that hitler was a christian??

heck no, why cant you believe that islam isnt about terror

That is true of any group...but I don't let that affect how I feel about the majority.:wink:

It's a larger problem in America then anywhere else, due to it's position in the world's mediaand the fact that the small percentage of jerks seem to hog the spotlight for the country as a whole a lot more then they should. I find the worst thing to come out of these small numbers of American are stereotypes. Granted, there is an American stereotype of the loud, McDonalds eating, obese moron, but that's not without some foundation, again due to the exposure of the small number of these "American everymen". However, they've cruelly stereotypesd many other countires inhabitants, and without any foundation, usually, and worse, they are normally actually serious when making these. Take my own country for example, Ireland, if the stereotypes are to be believed, all Irish people have red hair, "Seamus" is a very common name for men, all Irish men are heavy drinkers and are violent wife-beating street brawlers, and we say "Top of the morning to you" as a greeting, and only ever wear green, and most annoyingly of all, every one of us has the same intensily annoying accent, which would be high pitched "Oirish" accent. None of these whatsoever is true. Not even one. In fact, the tradition of wearing green of St. Partick's Day is an American custom, and doesn't even exist in Ireland. Ok /rant, that will probably seem a tad unneeded, but I really had to get that off my chest.
