You're not serious, are you? Please tell me there aren't people I otherwise consider very intelligent who lack such a basic understanding of history, sociology, and human behavior that they would need this stuff explained. Because if you lack the basic understanding of how racial discrimination and oppression BY whites AGAINST blacks has played a SIGNIFICANT role in our history … well, I don't know. Because at that point we might as well be debating whether or not the sun rises in the east. Yes, it IS that plain, clear and factual.
