Judging from most of the comments before me here, gotta ask, Why is it sooooo hard for white folks today to see, to understand, to appreciate that they are still BENEFITING from what their white supremacist/white racist ancestors did to black, brown, red and yellow people -- but especially black people -- historically and even currently? I know...they are in a constant state of denial because to fully understand what their great grandpa did to my great grandpa and great grandma....to fully understand why black Chicago looks like a war zone while white Chicago is damn near idyllic, well....the end of racism, of white supremacy begins with simply facing the truth about your history.

Then we -- black people alone -- decide how much and how you must pay us for us to leave you alone. And we WILL leave you alone thereafter.
