If that's her entire reference point, then she's talking the way she sees it. She would have remained within the same cliques in school, church and after school organizations. Heavy indoctrination. (i.e. it's goingn to get worse with private schools.)
Yes, yes, yes. In the 21st Century these insular communities exist. The autocrats hover around you in places you never expect to find them.
Using the same example I mentioned in the other post, the man whose lot is next to mine is a boss hog lobbyist. In my daughter's last two years of school, when boss hog didn't even have a kid enrolled in high school, he pulled the strings to come and MC at my daughter's games. The father who use to do it before he arrived was wonderful. We had a feeling of continuity. But his daughter didn't make the cut in her Senior year, which, surprise, left an opening for an MC.
Imagine what that reminder was like every game, every time I should have come to relax and watch my daughter play, and I had to hear his commanding voice over the intercom reminding me of the strings he could pull in the city.
You all have no idea what's behind racism. It's not just to tear down the black man. It's to remain in a position of dominance. It's what I call the plus minus. Every time they succeed in pushing someone down the ladder, allows them to step up one rung higher. That's why racism needs to be fought on both ends of the spectrum. Not just because of what they're doing to minorities, but what they're doing amongst themselves to benefit from their unquestioned way of life.
