Victim of jerkiness #1: African Americans. Now you may be thinking I'm going to talk all about slavery, but today I'm going to talk about after slavery. Until the mid to late 20th century, blacks were victims of many acts of jerkiness. For example, the Klu Klux Klan. They didn't think blacks should be equal, so what do they do? They torture and KILL poor blacks for this reason. People used and sometimes still do discriminate blacks, but WE ARE the ones who brought them here to begin with! Talk about being JERKY, America!
The Ku Klux Klan was mostly non-violent but sadly there were a couple of fringe groups that did murder and torture African-Americans. Infact Marcus Garvey, one of the most famous Black Nationalist Leaders, allied with the Klan's Imperial Wizard Edward Young Clarke. Garvey stated that "I regard the Klan, the Anglo-Saxon clubs and White American societies, as far as the Negro is concerned, as better friends of the race than all other groups of hypocritical whites put together. I like honesty and fair play. You may call me a Klansman if you will, but, potentially, every white man is a Klansman, as far as the Negro in competition with whites socially, economically and politically is concerned, and there is no use lying." We also must look at the White Slaves owned by Africans. In a new book, Robert Davis, professor of history at Ohio State University, calculated that between 1 million and 1.25 million European Christians were captured and forced to work in North Africa from the 16th to 18th centuries. That sounds pretty Jerkie to me.
Victim of jerkiness #2: Native Americans. When Christopher Columbus and all those peeps sailed to new land, they were obviously going to stumble across people already there. They tried to trade with us and all that and what do we do in return? we kick them off their land, slaughter their families, and make some slaves! And once the native slaves started dying we went across the sea and captured and sold Africans like they were LIVESTOCK!We didn't deserve their help in WW2, they hired Navajo natives to send codes to one another in their language so the Japanese couldn't crack it, like they could English. What do we do in return? when they were under attack, the U.S left them there to die. And what do the Japanese do when they figured out what language it was? they captured and tortured poor Navajos. Talk about being JERKY!
Victim of jerkiness: Asians. During WW2, America put all the Japanese people of the country into concentration camp- like camps(though they didn't kill anybody, thank god!). Now you may be saying that they did it so they didnt do anything else related to blowing crap up. But, these Japanes people were citizens of Japan, who were not part of the military in any way! It was like the Holocaust all over again, but with no deaths. Talk about Jerky!
Victim of jerkiness #4: Arabs. Just because They said Bin Laden was hiding in Iraq, doesn't mean the U.S can just storm in and kill all the people that come to close with a gun! They might be trying to give Intel or Wanting to help with the mission. Even children. Now I admit some people may be suicidal bombers or Taliban gun men, but that doesn't give you the right to shoot people on sight!
