I'm impressed that you took so much time to consider my post and went to the effort to analyze my family's timelines and resumes. But some of your assumptions are way off, so let me enlighten you.

First, my father is not 100. He's 92. My mother is in her 70s and attended college in her late teens and early 20s, not when she was 45.

And yes, several of my ancestors did indeed attend college in the mid-1800s. For example, my great-great-grandfather graduated from Wiberforce University which you probably know was founded in the 1850s. I don't feel the need to list a resume for my other relatives, so let's just take my word for it.

When you shifted from your analysis of my family's story into your subtle challenge of my main point, you suddenly became very vague, perhaps because you didn't have the courage to challenge me directly. For instance, in addition to the veiled snark that preceded it, you failed to identify which "U.S. Senator was supposed to be on our side" or which "white politician" you believe "our supposed allies" have singled out as a "whipping boy," but I'm pretty sure to whom you were referring - I just don't know why you think they are relevant to my OP.

I'm not sure why you decided to write such a petty OP that implies that I'm a liar and mocks my family story because YOU don't believe it. Perhaps you knew better than to come at me head on and so you decided to try being disingenuous and clever - and you did manage to fool several people into thinking you were actually being magnanimous and empathetic. But I see right through you and now just think you're silly, so I don't think you accomplished whatever your goal was.

FYI, your post is clearly a violation of DU rules, but I haven't alerted on it and hope no one else does because I think it's instructive for the folks on this board to see your true colors.
