Why they will never get it.
It’s only been 50+ years since the civil rights movement began to allow a portion of our population access to desegregated higher education and jobs that can lead to improving your standard of living and an enriched, healthy and supportive life style.
Do you really think 50 years of essentially starting from zero when it comes to access to upward mobility is going automatically put an oppressed population in the same environment as the population that has had consistent access to jobs and education, many of which gained incredible wealth and power and did not have to worry about being murdered for looking at a girl of another race during 400 years of slavery and 100+ years of institutionalized racism and segregation.
There is no way around the argument that a portion of our population has had a lasting and established advantage, by about a 500 year head start, by having access to affluence, that have had access to jobs and education and aren’t looked upon negatively by commerce and law enforcement based on the color of their skin.
I guess I wrote this because I see people aligning or comparing their situation with the situation of others that have been oppressed by 500 years of slavery, discrimination and institutional racism and I think the aforementioned aren’t considering the aspect of the argument I’ve outlined above.
Like I’ve said before, I believe there is an overwhelming environment of the powerful vs the less powerful that have much of our population squabbling with each other over who is to blame, when the blame, should be directed by the less powerful, towards the powerful, instead of the less powerful blaming each other.
If you think I’m wrong or inaccurate please tell me why.
