Because its affects are still with us today? And because it wasn't a hundred years ago? I mean, sure, more than a hundred years ago, the policy of
the state itself was that blacks are sub-human animals that can be owned as property, like cows and tables. Yeah 'only that' was more than a
hundred years ago. But then of course after that there was still a policy of legal inferiority, and it was only in the 60's that there was an
actual, successful, civil rights movement. But why should people be worked up over stuff that happened to their grandparents, or parents, right?
Cause that was 'so long ago', and there's no vestiges of it at all today, right?
The only thing that has changed is that it is now legal and many cases it is mandatory to discriminate against white males.
I wouldn't, for a moment, trade places with the minorities in the US. Neither would practically anyone else. The 'system' favours the majority.
Things like 'affirmative action' are hardly oppressive. While I agree that they are technically unfair, and that they have to be limited in time,
its only been, what, a generation or so, since segragation was made illegal, and since anti-black laws were outlawed? It takes a while for a society
to adjust, and whats it matter if that means that the government gives blacks, who around the country are 'segregated' into 'ghettos' and poorer
communities, a little more funding to make up for 200 years or so of actual
state approved discrimination?
east coast kid
When are the brothers gonna realize they're killing each other while the man sits back with the cheshire grin
Yeah, cuz thats
Its all been orchestrated by 'the man' to 'keep 'em down'. Its not a conspiracy man, its the way things
happened. And now, even with racism on the run, (as opposed to, oh, just a few decades ago when racism was popular and cool) there are still
problems. So it has nothing to do with 'the man keepin' the brother down', not on a civilizational scale anyway.
Perhaps black leaders should try and hammer this point home.
Like who? Jackson? Sharpton? Frauds
. Politicos. They're not 'leaders', and they
are the 'ones' 'smiling and grinning' at the
situation, because they are the ones who are benefiting from it, not 'the man'. 'The Man' is scared to go into 'the city' because of it. "The
Man' is forthing at the mouth over affirmative action. Meanwhile, Jackson, Sharpton, and the people that're the executive in the hip hop
, and the like, are the ones who are benefiting from strife. They're
the ones that don't care and work to promote it.
They've become 'the man'
