[size=4]R_O_T_F_L_M_A_O!!![/size=4] GOD I love those lists [:D][:D] I would write a "Great White Men In History" thread, but there isn't enough bandwidth since, well... You know. Anywhoo, I expect a moderator to not only lock this, but ban RandallFlag's account- becasue if I posted a "Greatest White Men In History", I would surely be chastized (not to mention be reminded of all those 17 great black men on Randall's list)

Jesse Owens, in my opinion, is one of the greatest role models any black person could have. He told things how they were, and still are. I will try and find the exact quote, but I will quote from memory as close as I can "If a black person today (circa late 1960's, when JO was an Olympic offical) does not make it in life, it is because they chose not to. They have no one to blame for their situation other than themself. They have all the tools needed to suceed". I wonder why we the public hardly ever hear of his statements and opinions? Too politically incorrect? JRB

One small problem: there is no direct evidence that Crispus Attucks, who died in the so-called "Boston Massacre", was black...just an inference from a list of escaped servants in Boston, ca. 1768, one of whom on it was named "Crispus", no last name or description listed. There were many greater, more deserving heroes in the American Revolution, both black and white, than a bunch of street brawlers in Boston in 1770.

You folks forgot George Washington Carver. I gained a great deal of respect for him after reading his autobiography, published by the John Birch Society. Went from ignorant, dirt-poor slave to the head of a college, through Hard Work and Virtue. Don't forget Malcolm X, by any means necessary. Who's that Oklahoma congressman, Mr. J.C. Watts? Sojurner Truth was a good woman. Black Civil War vets count as great men (to me). There ARE some genuinly great black men. -------- got hindsight?

View Quote
As Corporation Commissioner, he was the first official in state history to have his paycheck garnisheed. He has several out-of-wedlock children for whom he has never paid any child support, yet he criticized Clinton for bad morals. He votes to deregulate HAZMAT labeling for truckers, yet he becomes angry when OKC firefighters ask him about this when he speaks to them asking for their votes. He signs the "contract for America" in which he agrees to limit his terms in congress. He reneges. I wouldn't call him "great" by anyone's stretch of the imagination. You like him? Oklahoma will gladly send him your way.

As should you. The topic is Great Black men in American history, not Great Black Americans. Please get yourself an alphabet, a dictionary, and a thesaurus. Assuming you can read, please look up the word definitions used here and apply them correctly. Most first and second graders should be able to help you.

Indeed, there were many very great black men throughout history. More than we can discuss here. As far as great white men are concerned, there is no need to start a topic on them. Just go to any encyclopedia, open to any page and you will probably find one.
