Poor, poor caucasians.
They were forced to free us blacks from chains after you dragged us here against our will, destroyed our families, raped our women, and demoralized our men. Dammit. Those white people should have been allowed to continue getting wealthy off our toil!!!!
Oh…and then once we "free" … we weren't really free. That just meant more terror, limited economic opportunity, lynching, Jim Crow, separate but "equal", etc… Oh and by the way, not ONE CENT of reparations for those who helped build this country for free.
So finally, some 50 years ago, we had to ask these white folks again - who mind you, had already been severely inconvenienced by abolishing slavery - to say that at least "by law" we were equal to them.
[Wanna guess if there is still equlality?]
…and that's just the story of blacks in America. Whites have dominated and oppressed non-whites all over the globe for years.
So to me, its very petty to whine over the tiny pittance of concessions you've had to make because of past mistreatment. It's not anywhere NEAR to real justice and the effect on everyday lives of individual whites is pretty much NIL.
White people still have all the wealth, all the power, and all the influence in this world.
Yep. Poor caucasians.
