Inherited Racial Microaggressions or Nah?

Whenever things start to get better for people of color, whether it’s in the wake of Reconstruction and enslavement, whether it’s the civil rights era, there are these voices who assume that if it’s getting better for them it must be getting worse for us._Tim Wise, author of Color Blind, during conversation on ‘Racism as a Zero Sum Game

Well, on the one hand it’s not new. I mean the fact is claims of reverse discrimination actually go all the way back to the post-Civil War era when the Supreme Court threw out the really very minor Reconstruction Act laws that were attempting to provide a modicum of opportunity for formerly enslaved persons. Justice Joseph Bradley wrote for the court in 1883, you know, that it was time for the Negro to stop being the special favorite of the law and take his place as a mere citizen, of course, overlooking that white folks had never been mere citizens, they had been the only citizens according to federal law. So white folks have a long history frankly, we do, of exaggerating the problem. — Tim Wise

I never said stupidity is like obscenity, this is where comprehension is lacking and proven to my point, stupidity is beyond obscenity, it is interchangeably, both tacit and explicit, and I never clap for my own posts because it is not necessary for me to do so
