I agree we're not talking about human history. I agree that politics and policies have oppressed and negatively shaped the black community. Yes acknowledge these things as bad, but don't blame Jim Crow Laws, Redlining, or Unfair Hiring Practices as the reason why a black teen today (or any person for that matter) should fear for their life while walking or driving down Euclid or St Clair. E+R=O right? At some point you have to care enough about yourself and your fellow man to put in the hard work and make your world better.
