...to change history in any way possible where Black people had the "black privilege" and white people were treated the way we were/are treated, would you take that chance?

Even if that means you would be the oppressor and your ancestors enslaved white people. 

  • If your answer is yes, Would you become a black person who tried to understand white culture and be at their rallies trying to help their cause of affirmative action, or would you be that black person who had their head in the clouds acting as if racism didn't exist ? 

  • Or would you become a full blown racist who contributed to hiding the truth about what your ancestors did in order to keep our people in a good light?

  • Or would you not change history at all?


Be truthful, ya'lll Big smile I'm curious about the answers

If I could change history I would simply make everyone of all races equal.

I would too. BUT say you didn't have that choice, only the choices I gave you. What would be your answer then?

Yeah, this is a tough question. Each side has its faults. I'm leaning towards Sang's answer though, only because personally, I think all the hardships made some people in our race stronger and unique. I only say some because theres a wholeee lot of black people who still don't get it or don't care at all. Mostly the younger generation though

But then saying I wouldn't change anything makes it seem like I'm saying it is okay that the people back then were slaves and treated poorly.

Ehh idk, I'm still thinking about my answer I guess

Fucc equality, I want rulership. 

I wouldn't change anything because what white folks have coming to them is far greater than what we can imagine.

I wouldn't make any changes. I would be afraid of the consequences, I would fear the outcome of my choices as I can't predict which future events which would be altered.
