First, your comparison downplays the unique history of discrimination against Black people in America. Over the past four centuries, Black history has included nearly 250 years of slavery, 100 years of legalized discrimination, and only 50 years of anything else. Jews and Asians, on the other hand, are
And Jews had a 2 thousand year history of persecution, sometime very lethal as recent as 70 years ago. What is your point here? I like how you downplayed “anything else” in the context of affirmative action and grant programs mentioned in the article. You do realize that any able bodied American and many retired ones, lived all their lives (let’s discard for retires first 10 years as a little kids) in this very same 50 years? With all the help the government provided to them? To make the history hold you down like that, you have to make a long reaching effort and listen to race baiters, in both cases YOUR choice. That is what Traditional Tradesman tries to tell you.
He or me, do not try to deny all injustices that happen to black people or other people in the past, but to move to the future, you need to live in present.
