July 4th 1775 is when you Americans took your country from those arrogant English bastards! When we blacks, tried to gain freedom from you, you held us down. Isn't life ironic. Whites have the right to rule their own destiny; blacks were only created to be ruled by whites! Ain't that a shit!  BEING FREE FEELS GOOD, DOESN'T IT?

How could we be ingrates? You colonized us. You used our sweat to build your nation while you extracted the wealth and kept it for yourselves. We started secret underground movements and insurrections  but you crushed us with your big armies. Does this scenario  seem familiar? What the British did to you, you in returned did to the blacks! Freedom is what life is about.

Nonsense. I have never colonized you or anyone in my life.

Have you heard of the concept of collective responsibility, or collective guilt? Germans today are not "responsible" for the acts of their fathers, but they are still paying the price of their parents' guilt. Isn't it the same thing in microcosm? Don't the debts of the parents pass down to their children? Sorry, it isn't enough to blithely say "I wasn't there". Like the current generation of white South Africans, they benefited from apartheid, therefore they must pay for its sins.

White people have no guilt. They suffer from white supremacy. They feel that their white skin is better, therefore, they should have all the resources of the land. They must  serve their wants and needs firs,t and if there is any left over, the darker race could have it. If the blacks race put up a fight, they think are acting uppity. Bullshit! Share the resources of the land.

I had no more to do with it than you did.  In fact, I bet in your mixed up ancestry you will find slave owners. 

My ancestors were Czechs and Slovaks and they came to America after slavery ended.  How in the hell do I have some kind of 'collective guilt' for something my ancestors had nothing to do with?  How are you free of it when you very likely have slave owning ancestors?

The answer is that neither of us are guilty of anything that happened decades or centuries before we were born.   

Seriously, the idea that I am guilty of something that I didn't do and even my ancestors didn't do is absurd.
