42. It's been going on for centuries

I think that's why it's so hard for some to acknowledge. There are white males and white women for that matter see themselves as oppressed by programs such as affirmative action, which existed to create racial balance. If we could get the ERA passed, that would help with gender imbalance.

I had a professor once who said modern racism could be traced to the English defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588- the Spanish the original "brown people" while extensive racism certainly existed prior to that; he said that was the victory that solidified "white power" in politics on the world stage
