And my ancestors were slaves who were raped, tortured and murdered because of slavery.

The point, Dallas, is when is all this anger making racism less of a problem? I grant you that people were denied their unalienable rights in this country, but what good is it to still be angry 250 years later? Resentment just breeds more resentment and I see that as a huge problem when it comes to racism. Squeaky wheels do get the grease, but sometimes the grease doesn’t actually work if a wheel is shot. I would hope in the future that all of us — white, black, brown — can see that melanin does not signify character. Judge by behavior, not by color which could be said to anyone of any color.
