    First, truth isn't pretty. It must spoken to all. It's not just enough for whites or the majority to stick their heads in the sand and say we didn't do this so don't blame us. If you are seeing and injustice , you must speak against it. If you know there is inequity in schools speak out, your workplace discriminates speak against it, the justice system is corrupt speak out. They must educate themselves hold their governments accountable and be a voice for the voiceless.

    Second, before integration, blacks were educating themselves, running their own businesses, once integration happened, the businesses shut down, the schools were closed so black children could go to white schools that initially didn't want them. Integration is fine, but the black community has got to reclaim what it had before. It must regain those close ties within its community and rebuild those institutions that help a community flourish, the banks, the businesses the schools.

    Fair enough. But Farrakhan is part of America too, no matter what. What I'm trying to get across is he is only widening the gap between blacks and whites in America by uttering this kind of statement. I guess it's time to work our way up regardless of one's skin color and remote background. Of course whites are generally in a better position, but most of them are not directly responsible for this (aside from some people you mentioned). Whites should work hand in hand with blacks to remedy this dramatic situation. But this will never happen as long as they're talked down to, accused of crimes they did not commit. Unity amongst blacks is important, but being able to bridge sustainable relations beyond our community is just crucial.

    I don't think Farrakhan is talking about Wallace personally having blood on his hands. I believe he speaks of America having blood on his hands. Whites are in a privileged position because of these past actions. And you'll find that their businesses and institutions using this position to make themselves rich etc. by continuing this exploitation.

    Yeah thats quite plain, lets not play holy about that. But if America is actually marred by fierce corruption and bloodbath, how come would blood be on Wallace's hands and not Farrakhan's ? Why would that white dude be held responsible for acts he didn't even comitted ? I mean, there aint no such thing as legacy of victims. All it can do is trigger hatred and hell of a mess the world over.
