You are correct in asserting that you can't possibly relate to their triumphs however it's completely untrue that modern day blacks can't understand centuries of savagery and continued oppression. Blacks were marginalized legally in this country in the last 50 years!!! Remember the civil rights movement? What do you think those marches on Washington were all about parking spaces??? Blacks continue to be disenfranchised and diminished by societal perspectives plain and simple. This is a football message board and I really don't want to get into theologies and politics of this issue however I couldn't let this statement go unchallenged.
    What statement are you letting go unchallenged? I'm asking questions here.

    Right...

    So let me ask, is the "oppression" they face to day even remotely comparable to that of the past?

    Right, but he was referring to statements that I didn't make. Unless he takes issue with me being Greek.

    That depends.....are you comparing NOW to slavery or just oppression in general? Born into poverty with no real means to get themselves out of it, profiling, gerrymandering. Young black men and children are murdered on the streets every day, but get no real justice because they're not white.

    C'mon. You're comparing your heritige to black people of today. It's an asinine comparison and he called you out for it. You're not being oppressed today because you're Greek.

    He's scum playing for a scum team in a scum city.

    Vick. I was quoting someone who was talking about Vick. Although I don't hold too much in my heart for Cooper either.
