I've been trying to get this message into the minds of family and friends for decades. Anytime someone tries to compare the remnants of racism that exist today with what life was like prior to the Civil Rights movement gets immediately shutdown. As a product of a mixed race couple born in the 1950's, raised in Harlem I realize anyone born in the U.S. in the last forty years has been born into privilege. If you've failed to achieve some level of success given all the opportunities we're afford having been born in this country the problem is you. Even during a period of American history where systemic racism and segregation exist Black people were graduating from college to become doctors, lawyers, starting businesses and climbing the corporate ladder of success. If you're 30 years old and trying to raising a family working a minimum wage job in 99% of the cases it's the result of poor choice you made in your teens and early twenties. Anytime I hear one of my grandkids (my kids know better) complain about they can't accomplish this or that due to racism they get a reality check from grandpa. Unfortunately we have to many politicians and religious leaders preaching the victim mentality. Total nonsence.

And now Biden wants to give Federal money to schools for them to teach critical race theory to keep it going.

Everyone read that before it's censored and removed from the internet.

Remember it is in the best interest of the Govt to keep us divided by one thing or another. If 330 million were all on the same page then 1776 would be relived in 2021.

Just read “Rules For Radicals”   The Dems are using it as a blueprint.

I hope some Dem controlled cities proceed with their abolish the police plans. Let's see how Dem voters like it when criminals can waive off social workers and do as they please, while those Dem voters remain unarmed, especially outside their homes.

 

When people are as brainwashed as leftists are, only the brutal reality of murder, rape or robbery has a chance of lifting the veil of deceit (though even then, for some, it will be the fault of the police or "white supremacy").
