Quote# 64959

I'm black. I thank God my ancestors were slaves. It was the white man who introduced my people to the true and living God whom you do not know at this time. I will pray that you come? to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Right now you fellowshipping with the devil.

This is so sad, I don't quite know where to begin...

"My ancestors were forcefully torn from their homes and families, starved and beaten on the boats who brought them to this continent and then mistreated and abused for the rest of their miserable lives, as did their children and grandchildren. I'm so glad!"

Oh fuck, I just puked.

"I will pray that you come?"

I say that's very decent of you old girl.

I'm black. I thank God my ancestors were slaves.

Once again, great evidence for the fact that a persons intelligence has nothing to do with a 1/100 of an inch thick pigmentation layer in your skin.

What an idiot!

Gee, thanks for the advice Uncle Ruckus.

So your ancestors couldn't have just come here and found God without being a slave?

8/19/2009 7:13:18 PM


While I agree that this is a completely sick viewpoint, I can also see that, WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF THEIR BELIEF, this statement holds together. It is way better for a person to be a slave for a lifetime than to be in hell for eternity. After all, as time approaches infinity, all finite time approximates zero. And the point could be easily made that the OP's ancestors would have never been "saved" (forcibly or otherwise) had there not been american slavery.

Of course I find his whole statement repugnant, but it is the anti-life theology from which it springs that is the real tragedy.

You're happy you've been introduced to a religion as false as the one your ancestors held through atrocities committed on them? Sad.

Stockholm Syndrome

Would you be so thankful if it were you, and not your ancestors, who got to actually suffer for it?

Darn, DevilsChaplain beat me to it.

Uncle Ruckus quotes:
"To save thyself, you must hate thyself."
"Praise the caucasian savior!"
"May white God bless you Robert!"

Sadly, there are other black people like pattiejames out there.

didn't know christianity could fuck you up that badly. the day you can get a black man to be grateful for slavery must be some kind of fucked up land mark.

I want to punch you on behalf of every slave in the world.

Hammurabi at #1009099:

You are correct, up to a point. However, your observation holds only if one assumes that slavery was the only way to introduce Africans to Christianity. You'd think that God could have arranged a less heinous way for them to get converted if it was so damn important to him.

8/19/2009 8:40:51 PM


Lame disgusting god. Your god sure like slaves at lot.

I'm sure if your ancestors were to hear your statement they would make minced meat out of you.

8/19/2009 9:46:46 PM


Fuck that noise.

8/19/2009 10:38:47 PM



Gee, that's not overly forward at all ^_^

8/19/2009 10:52:19 PM

Haven't missionaries been going to Africa for a long time?

8/19/2009 11:02:25 PM

Probably your ancestors were not so grateful to God when they realised that they were going to work for free.

8/19/2009 11:29:50 PM


Generational Stockholm Syndrome?

Praised be white god, and his son, white Jesus!

"I'm black."

Something about that sentence makes me doubt that, I have heard too many people start a racist sentence with 'a black person said' to justify their racist nonsense. Of course, on the internet you can just say 'I am black' to begin your rambling and no-one can see your colour to prove otherwise.

"I thank God my ancestors were slaves"

I thought so, your talking bullshit. Lying for Jebus now, are we? I cannot be bothered to read any further of your crap.
