67. Limited interaction.

I can see that.

Evidently, the fear wasn't there when Blacks were enslaved. Probably because there was more interaction.

There has never been a period in this country of Blacks lynching others, burning and bombing Churches, attacking children with dogs and hoses, murdering people just for trying to vote. Yet some claim they fear the violent Black Man. I have never believed that.

They have no basis for that fear other than the 6 o'clock news where they see the thugs terrorizing communities of color. Most thugs have better sense than to terrorize other communities.

IMO, the "fear" is simply an excuse to justify bigotry.

JMHO
