And that is where she live also. Did you listen to her?


I guess she knew her audience were Nigerians and told them that. I believe you have Google on your phone. Please, lets not go back and forth on this. Do just a little research on what a councilmen/ woman is in an American city or county.......If she's the chairman, then what do you call the Mayor of the city?

Guy there is nothing like Bowie county in the state of Maryland. Bowie is a city and she is a council woman......equivalent to a councillor in a local government in Nigeria.....but by all standards an esteemed position. Kudos to her! cool

Then you have been making excuses for whites for 20 years because you believe kissing their pale flat asses will protect you from their savagery. Continue being the good obedient slave. Remember this, **If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything**.

The same old stereotypes, whites stand up against the system they are being assertive blacks stand up they are aggressive. The country has a history of violent, aggressive, hateful, racist cops against blacks due to slavery. They were called Slave Patrollers/Paddy Rollers out to catch runaway slaves, they were hateful, brutal aggressive savages and they haven't changed over the centuries.

Black skin infuriates them, they are afraid of retaliation because of their cruelty. They are afraid blacks will do to them what the have done to us, they are scared cowards that's why they shoot first and ask questions later. This isnt only the cops but white Americans as a collective, there are exceptions.

African immigrants aren't immune to their savagery. You ought to be ashamed of yourself posting stereotypes and misinformation. Do some research next time on the history of black Americans and the brutal treatment by the police. You will see the injustice. Immigrants like you make.me regret that my ancestors fought and laid down their lives to make it possible for you to permanently migrate to the US. You are traitors and should be treated as such.

This country is in a rebellion because of racism and injustice and you have the nerve to say it has a solid foundation. What is that foundation? I will tell you. This country was/is founded on institutionalized racism, oppression, inequality and injustice.

Haaa! All this for me? Sorry o my sister.

I'm sorry. Just wrong.

To give you a background. I'd probably be one of those "acceptable" black people white people like to talk about, you know the "non thuggish type". Highly educated, top schools, doing well, etc. etc. I've been pulled over by police at least 8 times, 3 at gun point(one time they thought my friends and I were robbery suspects and were surrounded by 3 squad cars with guns pointed at us), once standing outside my super elite high school (someone claimed I had a gun; I was 15) while waiting for my mom to pick me up and arrested once (for asking a cop for his badge number when he tried to kick me off my predominantly white campus about 10 feet from my dorm because he thought I couldn't possibly be a student there, in fact he told me I should get off campus (in this instance I was told it was my fault for asking a cop for his badge number)).

My friends and I (all very successful African/African Americans) were having a discussion yesterday about how they were going to talk to their children about being a "black male" in America. Even given their socio-economic advantages, it was even sadder to know that they would have to have these discussions with their young children. Watch the video of that "Karen's" interaction with that Harvard educated bird watcher and the "efficiency" in the words she uses to get the maximum police response. "African American", "threatening". And this is a woman who probably voted for Obama.

There is a history of systematic racism in this country that is ingrained in its DNA. There are people alive today who lived in a time when the US was segregated and thus there are still people alive who believed in segregation and taught that to their children. I assume most white people over 60 are racist, just because that is most likely what they knew or knew from their parents growing up. And that kind of indoctrination no matter how much you think you've changed doesn't go away easy.

America has a solid foundation? What is this foundation you speak of built on? The US fought a civil war largely because of slavery. The losers, the ones who wanted to own Black people, still fly their treasonous flag (confederate flag) in some statehouses today! My friend and your view, I wish you luck!


I feel you my friend.Those experiences are pretty bad. Tracing this to slavery is absolutely the right place to start. We all have our different experiences though, but i totally understand you and probably because you are more exposed to them, you feel their pulse better too. I'm in a predominantly white city but mostly nice people everywhere. May God protect us all.

You guys just new to America, probably less than ten years. But you guys will soon find out. White people hates black with passion but they don't show it. White will kill you for being black. African American might hate Africans out of ignorance but not going to kill you for being black.


Well, everyone has a different story. I'm going on my 20th here.

Blacks are naturally aggressive...most blacks just love to resist arrest compared to the whites...in as much as racism should not b tolerated,but the truth is that it is part of the human mental system... the blacks 4kd up by selling themselves to the whites...the are still fucking up with their mentality... they believe all their problems are caused by the whites...they dint like school and they love crime, they feel going to prison is kool, they hv the highest number of strippers and baby mamas, they don't want to work , rely on child support and drugs... typical lazy entitled black mentality ... policemen are always in constant fear while dealing with them...they have so much hatred for whites and also very racist


Thank you for this. I try to explain to friends that its not that bad here. Just do what's right n mind your business. African-American r aggressive n this is why a white person or cop brings out their own aggression to interact with them. Poeple dont even realize how some African American treats a typical African here. Most whites r cool regardless, just a few bad once. America has a solid foundation. Its a blessed country.
