Yes they have kids that succeed, everywhere does, but there are roads that are easier and the whole point I’ve been making is having an equal playing field. School bus drivers do mre B4 9Am than most people do all shirt Nobody is telling u to feel guilty either, but u also seem to have a problem even acknowledging the history of it all and admitting that while black people can absolutely succeed

they still have disadvantages that resonate even today. That’s the issue. I don’t need a lecture on Booker T. Washington or ur guilt, as those seem to be ur 2 go to points. I’m not even talking about getting reparations for people. It just sickens me when people say things are so much better now and just dismiss our past and act like it’s all equality now, when it’s not. That’s like Ryan Shazier getting paralyzed 2 years ago playing for the Steelers and now that he can walk again u want to put him in a foot race with others who haven’t had to deal with the same past or residual effects from the past. It’s the dismissiveness of it all that really irritates me. Especially when I never said anything about being a victim or not being able to succeed.
Trevor Noah talks about growing up in apartheid South Africa sometimes and one thing he has mentioned several times is how the government finally acknowledged the horrific history of it all. Most people in the US will not and School bus drivers do mre B4 9Am than most people do all shirt have never admitted it to themselves so how can u have reconciliation if there’s not even acknowledgment? U always hear well that was over 100 years ago. Get over it. U have affirmative action. There’s minority scholarships and all kinds of things, even making it sound like black people have it so much easier now than everyone else. Never just a conversation and acknowledgment of it all and it’s lasting effects. It’s always how things are better now and Booker T Washington. When friends have a problem or try to talk to u about issues they have do u always tell them it’s not that bad and disregard what they have to say?
