    It just goes to show you, you have to have nerves of steel to be Black in this world. White people don’t need to worry what Black people think of them, even when whites have low self-esteem.
    Black people have to have self-esteem made of teflon and the only way to get SELF-ESTEEM is to accomplish/achieve something in life while white’s, or anyone else, is trying to tear you down! That’s like Black people trying to climb a wet muddy hill.
