No living people — black or white — are responsible for what other black and white people did generations ago.
Some two-hundred years ago the white people sat on their porches and watched the black people do the work that needed to be done so the whites could live the life they wanted.
If the blacks didn’t produce enough to keep the whites happy, they paid the price.
In those days, this was called slavery.
Today, the black people sit on their porches and watch the white people work to pay the taxes that are necessary for the blacks to live the life they want.
If their welfare check is not enough to keep them happy, they complain about it, or they tear up a town to get the point across that they are unhappy.
It would appear to me that the only thing that has changed is the color of the slaves.
Acknowledge that some of our history was not pretty, then move forward.
Irony will likely never go away.
