You said "Blacks been facing adversity since the time of noah with quotes that come straight out of the Bible itself"

What makes you say that ? Where is the evidence in the Bible ?

You asked "My question is why America honor something that didn't even happen in this country"

Why not ? Does it cost you anything ? Holocaust is something like black slavery which should be recognized and condemned. If we choose to forget the past and history will repeat it's mistakes.

You said "G-d words is that blacks are cursed."

Bible does not have even a single verse which says that blacks were cursed. It simply says that man was created in God's image, and that holds good for the black man, the white man, the brown man or any human. If KKK thinks so, it is simply not from the Bible.

You said "The reality of it will almost likely cause shock to the world or most people when in fact that all human race come from the african man"

Today, it is a well known and scientifically proven fact that the human race originated in Africa even if some people may not like to believe it. Forget about "shock" , no body really bothers.

You said "Now being all killing is wrong and should be the very last resort too". If you look at the holocausts and genocides, people were killed for no fault of theirs apart from the fact that they belonged to a different race or followed a different faith. You cannot deny or justify the Jewish and Armenian holocausts, the Bangladeshi genocide, East Timor, Darfur... and crib about Algeria, Afghanistan or Iraq. That is what I wanted Harrak to understand. I have noticed this whenever any non-moslem country ( irrespective of whether it is secular, communist or others ) goes on war with a moslem country, moslems world wide complain, "Christians are attacking moslems..." or "Hindus are attacking moslems..." without ever looking into the causes of the war. If the opposite happens "it is just Jehad" and back to business as usual. Ditto for moslems killing moslems , the moslem world conveniently ignores it. Internal squabbles eh? Well people are being killed. You blame whites and even Christ for black slavery, while conveniently ignoring the fact that molslem have killed,raped,captured, traded and even castrated black african males for use as guards in their harems. Your prophet Mohammed's wives kept many slaves, but nobody blames Islam for slavery because of that. Moslems qoute the Law of Moses written 4000 years back, which talks about humane treatment of slaves and claim that the bible promotes slavery. We have a collective responsibility towards crimes against humanity even though we ourself never did it, or will ever do it. I only ask you to accept your part before pointing self righteous fingers at others. If you go through the entire chain of posts, you will understand what I mean.
