  1. Albert Einstein spoke to Seminarians at Princeton: ‘To an individual a soul is given, the high destiny for man is to serve rather than to rule or impose himself in any other way’.

    1. @Creamstp physic is a science.All sciences are based in reallity. The concept of the theory of relativity actually applies to this. Glad i could help. Hope you learn something.

    2. @sammavacaist It’s not their fault they have been brainwashed for a decade by right wing media. They are victims. But it’s true their bs is getting old ,.

  2. No matter how well you treat someone they’re still in slavery. it’s like prison, you could live in a five star prison but you’re still in prison

    1. @big tornadoes When you offend someone you offend someone. There are in no ways post-slavery, in any aspect, worse than slavery. This is a stupid argument! There is NOTHING you can describe post-slavery that is comparable or worse than slavery.

      We are speaking about events that made people of color have no civil liberties, no ownership, no class, NOTHING! To individuals whom started to gain some of those things (mind you they were limited) post-slavery.

      Funny, I don’t need anything because I know what I am discussing. What you need to do is refer back to history and gain a more comprehensive understanding of what you are trying to discuss. Because as it stands you don’t.

    2. @big tornadoes
      That’s good you’re awake. And I know that the privilege-who currently enjoy the fruits of their ancestors oppression-don’t see the necessity for making amends for their ancestors oppression with reparations for African Americans. As MLK so eloquently said, “nothing is more dangerous in the world than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” And we still struggle and protest bc we know “power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.”Frederick Douglas

    3. remember the great hank aaron quote? – “a rich slave is still a slave.” people believing slavery’s been abolished. that’s crazy. people of every race and ethnicity have been both slaves and slave owners.
      slavery built the pyramids and got us to the moon. it built the great wall of china, the roman roads, the railroads and it manufactures planes. you don’t like slavery? you don’t like the last 6000 years of human history. you don’t like what the elite has declared as “human progress.”
      your cell phone, clothes and car were built by slaves. amazon and wal-mart exploit both domestic and international slave labor. forced labor is just one kind of slavery. forced dependence is another form. there’s slavery to religion. there’s slavery to pop culture and the media. there’s slavery to technology and the corporations that produce that technology. there’s slavery to lobbyists and special interests. there’s prison slavery. there’s sex slavery. there’s wage slavery and debt slavery. there’s consumer, commercial and material slavery. there’s slavery of the mind as well as the body.
      slavery hasn’t ended in this country or this world. they just tweaked it a little, renamed it, rebranded it and marketed it as employment. in the past, slave owners were required to provide their slaves with housing, clothes, food and medical care to keep them healthy and productive. now, your slave owners don’t have to provide you with anything. not even a livable wage. don’t like it? they don’t care. there’s plenty of slaves out there to choose from.
      capitalism THRIVES on slavery. YOU’RE A SLAVE! i’m a slave. so don’t be fooled. you’re all still slaves. just like your ancestors were years, decades, centuries and millennia ago.

    4. Some crook’s prison is better than mid class private house.
      Poor people might want it more than their own life

    5. @Eavy Eavy … i’ve no idea where you got that nonsense at, but its ridiculous. unless, you’re talking about those special prisons just for rich people. but no, your average prison cell, the one’s the rest of of face upon conviction, isn’t like anyone’s private home.

    1. @meghnac78 Republicans only challenged votes from six states. This election.

      In 2017, House Democrats objected to votes from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Wisconsin. Objections also were made after the announcement of votes from Mississippi, Michigan and Wyoming, adding up to a total of nine states.

      Not to mention the biggest conspiracy in history to overthrow the White House with their blatantly fabricated Russia collusion nonsense.

    2. @Reifugee 2017 – objected to votes for what? The election was over in 2017. Trump was already President. Also, you completely ignored the fact that Trump and his campaign BLOCKED recounts.

      There was no outcome to the Russian collusion conspiracy. It remained just that – a conspiracy. Nothing really came out of that investigation. Trump remained in office, didn’t he?

    3. @Black Lies Matter I am genuinely glad it is. I am perfectly happy with my lot in life. But just to point out – I never once complained. Neither did I say anything that sounded remotely like complaints. I was just pointing out facts.

    4. @meghnac78 Electoral College votes..

      In 2016 Trump accused “Democrat States” of refusing to turn over information requested by the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity – tasked with investigating alleged voter fraud in the 2016 election – because “they know that many people are voting illegally.”

      “System is rigged,” Trump said, calling for more stringent voter ID laws.

      Trump was the one that actually wanted to investigate states 😉 And good to see that you admit that democrats fabricate conspiracies to damage their opponents. Because it’s a trademark of theirs.

    5. @meghnac78 “Socialism is the creed of envy and the religion of greed. It’s only redeemable quality is the equal sharing of poverty and misery.” Sir Winston Churchill summed it up perfectly…

    1. @TheHate FuLL1 No the guy was not fit to lead this country period! The only thing I can give credit is for the NAFTA trade that’s it. 45 was just looking for more ways to make himself and his inner circle more rich that is it.The guy was rotting this country from the inside out! Just like the rest of the WS. So let’s be real the old ways of this country is what is causing the problems here in Amerikkka. The GOP just need to dismantle and rebuild period leave that trump party behind. Again the GOP to stupid to see that the fell for the okie dole

    2. @TheHate FuLL1 And this is the problem with the likes of people like you: If you’re able and willing to procreate, there’s no way this hate towards mankind is ever going to go away. You’re not interested in looking for solutions because your agenda coincides with what Trump tried (and still trying) to divide this country to a point of no return: Civil war and an all white superpower. FACTS!

    3. @TheHate FuLL1 MAGA as all HATERS know is the highest level of membership in the Church of SATAN!
      So the hate full maga satan worshipping P o s has something to say?

    4. well, there IS good slavery. its good for nothing.
      actually, your cell phone, clothes and car were built by slaves. amazon and wal-mart exploit both domestic and international slave labor. forced labor is just one kind of slavery. forced dependence is another form. there’s slavery to religion. there’s slavery to pop culture and the media. there’s slavery to technology and the corporations that produce that technology. there’s slavery to lobbyists and special interests. there’s prison slavery. there’s sex slavery. there’s wage slavery and debt slavery. there’s consumer, commercial and material slavery. there’s slavery of the mind as well as the body.

  3. If I’m in a class and they start talking about the “good” of slavery, im walking out, after telling off the teacher.

    1. well, there IS good slavery. its good for nothing.

    2. @c. j. macq When you really stop and think about it, how much difference is there between the modern wage-slave and their preindustrial counterparts?

    3. @Dennie Saunders It actually DOES effect POC, in the form of systemic racism, lack of representation, and erasure. It’s pretty easy to see for a normal person, who knows history, listens to others, and see it. BUT YOU ARE A DUMB RACIST AND CAN’T FIGURE IT OUT ON YOUR OWN.

  4. *Tim Scott:* America is not a racist country.

    *Republican:* Let’s talk about the good of slavery.

    1. @Marie Taylor yes ma’am…it’s also the same Tim scott that authored bills that specifically targeted systemic racism…in the bill it specifies it…but he says America isn’t racist…if it’s not racist…he shouldn’t have made a bill that targets racism…that HIS party opposed…shame isn’t it?

    2. @aahliyah Hernandez Chauvin had no way of telling Floyd died of an overdose and he was charged with 3 different charges non of which should be given to him for a death from an overdose and for the Sean bell one I can find absolutely no footage or anything about it so unless you know something that shows the footage I can’t say because I don’t argue about police shootings until I’ve seen the full footage of the incident

    3. @Fifa Dylan Sean bell was shot 50 ,times outside of a strip club in NY..they said he had a gun…but he had a wallet…the cops got off…

  5. Actually , that is exactly what the GOP guy means,there is no slipping of tongue here it is exactly what he means.

    1. @M Hall Did you forget that Trump sued and settled out of court because he wouldn’t rent his aoartments to blacks? I know you didn’t know that he pushed for the death penalty of the Central Park 5 after they had been found innocent. I know you missed all the times he called black athletes sons of b*tches. and I know you never caught how when he talks about “the blacks” he speaks as if they are all poor and living in ghettos. oh and bonus! you must have been in a coma when he called black nations s*it hole nations. And don’t get me started on all he has said about the Mexicans! Admit it – you love a racist! you will never leave Donald Trump side! he is like you and you love him!

    2. @Joyce Duncan . Did you forget Biden used the N word frequently? That he supported bussing and segregation? His best friend was Senator Robert Byrd a klansman and he gave his eulogy? Did you forget all the racist gaffes he has made recently because of his racist heart? He said he didn’t want his kids growing up around blacks and inner city kids are predators? Did you forget Harris called him out on racism during the primaries? And you voted for him? So it’s okay for biden but not for President Trump?? I see.

    3. @Joyce Duncan . The media and people like you are all hypocrites. Do as we say not as we do. You show.no outrage of biden’s racism. Dark days are here.

    4. people believing slavery’s been abolished. that’s crazy. people of every race and ethnicity have been both slaves and slave owners.
      slavery built the pyramids and got us to the moon. it built the great wall of china, the roman roads, the railroads and it manufactures planes. you don’t like slavery? you don’t like the last 6000 years of human history. you don’t like what the elite has declared as “human progress.”

  6. Even though she’s trying to defend his ridiculous statement as a slip of the tongue I respect the fact that she has the moral integrity to know better and she instinctively said it out loud she didn’t think it and keep it to herself as so many people do she said it out loud and I have a lot of respect for her from that going forward.

    1. @Brett – “None of us are oppressed in USAmerica.” ?? REALLY? Are you actually this ignorant? How much are you payed to pretend to be stupid and push the propaganda of violent racism?

    2. @kellygreenii My goodness, how virtuous you are. Never a bad thought or a wrong idea in your head. Please forgive the rest of the human race who isn’t perfect.

    3. @Mal Mort Did you really just suggest that Project Veritas is a journalistic entity, that will one day, hold CNN accountable for a lack of credibility and integrity in journalism? Oh, lord, now I’ve heard it all. Frankly, it doesn’t get any more delusional than that.

    4. actually, your cell phone, clothes and car were built by slaves. amazon and wal-mart exploit both domestic and international slave labor. forced labor is just one kind of slavery. forced dependence is another form. there’s slavery to religion. there’s slavery to pop culture and the media. there’s slavery to technology and the corporations that produce that technology. there’s slavery to lobbyists and special interests. there’s prison slavery. there’s sex slavery. there’s wage slavery and debt slavery. there’s consumer, commercial and material slavery. there’s slavery of the mind as well as the body.

    1. @big tornadoes i don’t rewrite history. nixon and trump were republicans elected under the republican ticket. as far as you guys, you mean liberals, well i’m not, but i know a lie when i see one. republicans started out as liberals in their inception, but it got bastardized when they couldn’t get enough votes to get elected.

    2. @Freeda Peeple speaking of reading your history, you ought try it sometime. lincoln was opposed to slavery and it’s expansion into the western territories. he hated the fact that the civil war was killing the young men of the u.s. but ending the war without ending slavery was a deal breaker. what do you think the 13th amendment was. by the way freeda peeple is spelled free the people.

    3. @Denis Lessard My post was poorly worded. I was referring to his statement that he would have been fine with ending the war with freeing all the slaves, or with freeing some of them, or with freeing none of them. The war was not about slavery; regardless of his personal opinions slavery was a secondary issue at best.
      Btw, it’s not my history. Fortunately, I am not American.

    4. @Jo Poveromo Jo I can tell that you like to throw around terminology like leftist and communist. Have you read Das kapital or the Communist Manifesto?

    5. @Freeda Peeple well we have that in common, i’m a canadian who used to spend a lot of time in the u.s. also a history buff. the books on the civil war i read all said that he thought that slavery was wrong morally and that he didn’t want to allow slavery to go west into the territories. the thirteenth amendment is proof enough for me that he meant what he said. also i found that i don’t feel as safe in the u.s. as i use to. it’s like trump allowed all the racists and white supremacists to come out of the woodwork and you really have to watch what you say and where you say it. it’s not like it use to be.

  7. All trump did was remove the mask so to speak. These people don’t even try and hide the racism anymore.

    1. @Nemesis HD He denounced the KKK and his membership decades before he died. Thats a good thing right? We want people to turn away from racism and hatred right? He endorsed Obama in the presidential election. At the time of his death the NAACP issued a statement stating “Byrd reflects the transformative power of this nation. Senator Byrd went from being an active member of the KKK to a being a stalwart supporter of the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act and many other pieces of seminal legislation that advanced the civil rights and liberties of our country”.

      You currently support a man who is actively racist in a party that is actively racist. A party where active klansmen, neo nazis and white supremacists flock. But I get it, you don’t actually care about the facts do you. You would still like to live in the ridiculous delusion that you are still the party of Lincoln lol .

      Are you aware that Fred Trump was detained at a KKK rally in 1927? No, see no evil, hear no evil right Nemesis? Don’t hold that against donald though do you, and that would make sense but then there’s the housing racial discrimination that Donald and Fred both engaged in in the 1970’s which landed them in federal court. So by your own standards, you know once a racist always a racist mentality, you should find donald abhorrent.

      Maybe actually research instead of just believing everything that your master and his sycophants tell you. Or at the very least be consistent with your judgements. Just a thought.

    2. @Rachel Barker I tried researching and this is what I found.

      In 1927 He was never arrested, never convicted, never even charged.

      1973 he was in federal court and Those allegations were dismissed by the court.

      Like you said. People can change. And I guess that’s what happened.

      2017, Trump made a statement from the White House, denouncing saying “KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

      2018 Tump signed First Step Act. Reforms federal prisons and sentencing laws in order to reduce recidivism, decrease the federal inmate population, and maintain public safety. 1973 he was in federal court and Those allegations were dismissed by the court.

      2019 Trump signed a bill that permanently provide more than $250 million a year to the nation’s historically black colleges and universities. Obama didn’t even do that.

  8. This is what happens when you believe there’s two sides to every discussion. There are not.
    If the debate is “should we run over this innocent puppy for no reason”, I don’t want to hear both sides. It’s a bad idea.

    1. Like having a discussion of ‘both sides’ regarding at what temperature water boils. Sometimes, there is just one side.

    2. You should. If by running over a puppy means you could avoid a tragic car crash that may kill few people…..

    3. In few years or so people will definitely be kicking themselves in regret for missing the opportunity to buy and invest in cryptocurrency

    4. people believing slavery’s been abolished. that’s crazy. people of every race and ethnicity have been both slaves and slave owners.
      slavery built the pyramids and got us to the moon. it built the great wall of china, the roman roads, the railroads and it manufactures planes. you don’t like slavery? you don’t like the last 6000 years of human history. you don’t like what the elite has declared as “human progress.”

  9. this was more than a lapse in judgement. I live in louisiana as well. no black representative would even come close to saying ANYTHING like this or proposing such a ridiculous bill. it speaks to the privilege he operates under that he doesnt even have to think before speaking on such a sensitive topic. She was too nice about this.

    1. @Lonnso World Yep. Which are all nice labels for watered down white nationalism/Christian nationalism.

    2. Stop being so damn sensitive. It obstructs normal conversation. You “woke” people are not going to change our language. Brainwashing does not work on everyone, only the weak minded ones. Thank God.

    3. @Godfrey Daniel Scott was not thrown in front of the cameras by anyone. He was speaking from the heart. His logic and common sense words are wasted on deaf ears.

    4. @Ginny Murray – By weak minded, do you mean those who STILL believe the election was “stolen” and the way to remedy that (in spite of there being NO evidence of fraud) is to attack the nation’s seat of governance?

  10. I remember back in high school I had a teacher that tired to justify slavery by saying “it wasn’t that bad, a lot of people were really nice to their slaves”

    1. Absolutely correct – that’s what I got in junior high school – also that since the slaves were workers, why would the masters mistreat them – ludicrous

    2. there WERE slave owners who were much better to their slaves than others.
      actually, your cell phone, clothes and car were built by slaves. amazon and wal-mart exploit both domestic and international slave labor. forced labor is just one kind of slavery. forced dependence is another form. there’s slavery to religion. there’s slavery to pop culture and the media. there’s slavery to technology and the corporations that produce that technology. there’s slavery to lobbyists and special interests. there’s prison slavery. there’s sex slavery. there’s wage slavery and debt slavery. there’s consumer, commercial and material slavery. there’s slavery of the mind as well as the body.

    3. @Tito D all that doesn’t matter, Americans still bought slaves. The fact Africans sold slaves doesn’t absolve or lessen guilt in their participation. Stop making excuses.

    1. She is right on a widespread century old phrase being a poorly used . Only he knows what his intent was unless he has a history. She left out the fact that American school systems (Virginia, Minnesota, California) are removing American history and replacing it with the evils of inate whiteness from birth.

    4. Tucker Carlson: “They had lodging, food! They were shown Jesus! Taken out of their “shithole” country, where they had no culture! Yet Democrats want to say that slavery was all bad.”

    5. @Comrade Wolf … slavery IS all bad. some slavery is LESS bad than others but its ALL BAD! what’s wrong with you people? just because you like your slavery doesn’t mean the rest of us should.

    1. Good analogy for the Democratic machine that wants our country to become socialist. They don’t try to hide it anymore. It was clear in bidens speach.

    2. @id gaf Two lies. President Trump never used the “forbidden word” whenever he addressed black people. No one shot at unarmed protesters. If they have to use other methods to break up violent people they always tell them to disperse and go home with a warning of what will happen if they don’t. Most choose to stay so that they can whine and scream about being victims.
      It is a shame that police cannot shoot arsonists and looters on the spot. That’s the only way to stop them and preventing more crime of the sort. We enable them when officers have to stand down and watch the crimes being committed right before their eyes.
