There is no such thing as reverse racism- discrimination is discrimination. I don't see the comment as reverse racism- just plain and simple racism.
A black judge makes a comment implying blacks are still slaves to white people "...cleaning up white folks' messes for hundreds of years...."
Sounds like a black man slagging on white people... and making himself look bad in the process. The comment doesn't even remotely suggest that blacks
are equal. So maybe he's even racist against his own race?
Instead of reflecting on history, and trying to rise above the situation(s), making oneself better than the environment, it's just a lot of "us vs.
them" mentality. And this makes it rather difficult for those of us who want the country to move forward, be better people as a whole, to find
sympathy in those actions and genuinely want to help.
The majority of people holding the black community back are the black community- just ask Bill Cosby... and I think MLKJr would agree with him.
