3. Thank you- I think a lot of us have not considered the breadth of the exclusion of
African Americans in so many areas of civic life, on top of the second class everything (starting with education) we expect them to just accept as their lot.
I'm thinking of the hard time NYC schools have had- even had after they WON a court case that would leave them funded as well as schools upstate. The judge overturned the decision to apportion more money and remarked something to the effect of "someone has to flip burgers". Fuck these people. Seriously. This is systematic disenfranchisement of a huge portion of our populace. Makes me want to scream!
