    so? vikings, romans, red indians, germans etc are/were a culture too.. yet it`s ok to run around with feather headgear, breastplates, viking helmets and Lederhosen as a costume..

    Why you so self-racist, blacks?

    Really? How many white people do you think put on black face for a Halloween costume? Not many. Besides, her costume looks like it`s supposed to be a rapper or something.

    The economy is tanking, unemployment is skyrocketing, police brutality is a common occurrence, and the government can`t pass legislation if it`s existence were at stake.

    But do you know what the biggest problem in the US is? Halloween costumes are racist!

    This is something that could go in both directions of argument.

    While it IS only a costume, the argument could easily be that it promotes a negative image of a particular race (much like painting yourself yellow and wearing thick glasses and buck teeth and saying "so solly" every few seconds). But it IS just a costume, right? No reason anyone should be offended, right?

    Make an issue of it if your local store is selling the costume. This looks to me to be a homey job, so it`s only a single person.

    Can`t say I`d be offended if was a black person painted white, so "I don`t get it" as South Park would say.

    To start with, being "black" is not a culture. 90% of Afroamericans were born/grew up in the U.S. under the U.S. culture. How is it that it makes them "a different" culture? They are as Americans as the Asian descendant American or Hispanic American or Caucasian American. This is BS

    Your culture is based on your surroundings and interactions with people, the given ideals of a particular area. But saying your culture is based solely on your skin color (and implied it is something you can never escape or change) is much more racist than that costume is.

    I do believe that this is another case of the pot calling the kettle black, as how many women, white, black, Asian or otherwise, dress up as a geisha for Halloween? Its cute how slant eyes and crackers (such as myself) can look at satire of our respective color`s "black sheep" and laugh, while these people can`t.

    OldOllie had it right though, just as my culture is Dutch, Polish, English etc., your culture is as his picture states. Everything else is a manifestation of cross and counter culture that evolved only within the past 80 or so years.

    You`re right. I guess black people should thank you for shipping them over here then setting them free after they paid you back for your "good deeds," huh Olie? They should be very greatful for all that "culture" we gave them!

    You`re right - that WAS their culture, before Europeans enslaved them for profit.

    What will always blow my mind is you (and your sympathizers) see nothing wrong with anything you say and just think people are too sensitive. You ignore the real evils of racism through blithe minimalization of the still-existant cultural harm racism causes, and your solution of ostritch-like ignorance only prolongs the time needed to eradicate the cultural scars still festering.

    You`re wrong about two thing: First you will notice that I posted a color photograph of present-day Africa, which means that IS their culture, not WAS.

    Second, Europeans didn`t enslave Africans; AFRICANS enslaved Africans and sold them to Europeans. It was Europeans who ENDED slavery, although it still continues to this day in Africa.

    Slavery is an abomination whenever, wherever, and by whomever it is practiced. But you cannot say that African-Americans have not benefited from the suffering of their ancestors. Ask the girl in the poster if she`d like to trade places with the woman in the picture I posted below.

    "AFRICANS enslaved Africans and sold them to Europeans. It was Europeans who ENDED slavery,"

    I really find it difficult to believe these words, the ludicrous attempt to even place the Europeans in a favourable light in the whole slavery business is so incredibly far-fetched it`s beyond me. I feel sorry for you, I really do.

    Actually, a lot of the time it was African tribes enslaving rival tribes and them selling them to Europeans. (Not saying that it wasn`t terrible.) Also, you know not a single person would bat an eye if a black person painted themselves white as a costume.

    Yes, I know, the problem here was Ollie trolling with absolutes. Of course it`s not a case of only bad white guy vs. poor good black guy (both are human, so there`s a 50% chance they`ll be a nasty piece of work) but in no way could anybody in their right mind even suggest a good white guy vs. a bad black guy scenario, it`s completely ridiculous and offensive, not to a particular skin colour, but to intelligence.

    "I really find it difficult to believe these words ..."

    Your struggle with ignorance does not mean those words are in any way ludicrous. They are true. Slavery was pretty close to universal. It was first ended in Europe (Britain took the lead and the Royal Navy worked to stop the trade worldwide).

    Did you realise also that the Arabs took more slaves over the centuries, many of them from Europe, than people of European extraction took? Is that perhaps another area where you have difficulty with the truth?

    @randomxnp, we all struggle with ignorance in our own way, just as it seems that you have some difficulties understanding a basic premise. If I say that Europeans enslaved other human beings in no way does it mean or imply that others did not, it means that Europeans enslaved. Did I say that Africans didn`t enslave Africans? I think not.
    On the other hand, did Ollie say "Europeans didn`t enslave Africans"? Yes, he did. And that is what I find unbelievable.
    I find it funny that people fail to see this

    AGit, I`m truly sorry for not taking into account your low IQ and limited vocabulary. Instead of using big words like "abomination," I should have said, "Slavery is really, really bad." That`s what "abomination" means. I assumed that if you didn`t know that, you could look it up. Unfortunately, that that assumption was unwarranted.

    The Europeans provided a market for slaves thus encouraging African tribes to make war solely for the purpose of capturing slaves to sell to the slave traders. The Europeans and later the Americans, were certainly not without blame for this, but neither were they alone.

    If you had studied history, (REAL history, not the leftist crap you learned in school) you would know about the history of slavery, how it ended in the west, and how it continues in other parts of the world.

    OldOllie, I see that you have to resort to insult, so I guessing that`s the limit of your arguments. I won`t bother going round and round ad nauseam, it`s already written down, please feel free to read again, perhaps you missed something out.
    You wrote down "Europeans didn`t enslave Africans". This is a lie and I felt I had to say so, this spewing of lies and hatred is troublesome. If you want to believe that, go ahead, it`s your poor choice. If it was a mistake, just say so and all will be fine.
    And irrelevant to the conversation, but I didn`t learn "leftist crap" as you say, if you really want to know I spent over six years in a private Catholic school that leaned more to the right, funny world huh?

    AGit, you started with the insults when you said I wasn`t in my right mind, so you can take your holier-than-thou, condescending, self-deluded, superiority complex, fold it 5 times, and shove it straight up your @$$.

    The fact that you can`t seem to get through your thick skull an into your tiny brain is that European slave traders didn`t send their crews off into the interior of Africa to capture slaves. That would have taken way too much time and been far too dangerous to make the effort profitable. They left that chore to other Africans. They pulled into port, loaded the holds, and sailed on the next tide. Many of the slave traders in those ports were actually Muslim Arabs who bought slaves from the Africans and sold them to the Europeans, but even they weren`t stupid enough to go out and try to capture slaves themselves. That was a really good way to get yourself killed, and was completely unnecessary.

    OldOllie, I think that the basic problem is that perhaps you don`t read carefully enough or maybe I don`t make myself clear enough. I haven`t insulted you directly (I said "nobody in their right mind", that`s pretty generic, not directed as an insult to you), but if you feel offended, go right ahead.
    You can get picky with that, but what is quite straightforward is that I have opposed your arguments specially "Europeans didn`t enslave Africans" and you haven`t answered except by insulting and giving me information that I already knew but has nothing to do with the fact that you affirm that "Europeans didn`t enslave Africans".
    Therefore, and to make it as clear as possible: That statement is a total and utter lie.
    Perhaps it was childish of me to go around pointing out that someone on the internet is wrong (as if it never happens) but I couldn`t help it. But I`m not so childish to let insults affect me, so feel free to counter with more insults

    AGit, I think you don`t know the definition of the word "enslave," which is: to make someone a slave. A person is enslaved at the time of capture. The people who buy, transport, sell, or own slaves are not the ones who have enslaved the slave. That was the person or persons who first captured the slave. Europeans definitely participated in every step of the process EXCEPT capturing Africans. Oh, I`m sure there are a few rare exceptions where some unfortunate and unwitting African was standing on the beach waving at the slave ship as it dropped anchor and launched a boat to come ashore and put him in chains, but I assure you, 99% of African slaves were not captured, and therefore were not enslaved by Europeans. In fact, the by the time of the Civil War, most slaves were not captured but were born into slavery. You could say the newborns were enslaved by their parents` owners, but by that time they were Americans, not Europeans.

    OldOllie, and that is why I couldn`t suggest you have a low IQ, I must admit that the thought process is interesting to say the least. Being extremely picky at the definition, you manage to place a seed of confusion. Bravo sir, indeed. The Oxford dictionary indeed states enslave as "make (someone) a slave" and adds "cause (someone) to lose their freedom of choice or action"
    But I don`t intend to be that picky, I already have the information I needed (it`s only the two of us looking at this post by now, anyway:)
    Good day and again, bravo.

    WTF? For some reason I can't see the picture, but it must be a doozy. 123 comments? Mostly from people who seldom comment. Normally you need to post something about banning guns to prevent AGW. Gerry, you're just wrong. "To cause someone to lose their freedom" is a legitimate use of "enslave". If I said that "King Gustav imprisoned Count Olaf." would you argue that he did not personally take him to the dungeon and lock the door, that was two guards and a leering turnkey? Yeah, probably. And why am I being moderated?
