The playing field will always be unequal no matter what "race" you are, this all really started out as a class based system until the time of Bacon's rebellion where POOR blacks and whites rose up against the RICH elites(all europeans naturally), both wanting a fair shake. It was than that racism was invented, it was than that the term race was invented, it was than that all of a sudden everyone that was of some europeon origin magically became part of this "elite club", though not really. White privelege has its own limits as well.
Speaking of the bus boycott, I dont think that it was those afro dollars they were after so much as that cheap labor, you have to admit black people have been doing some of the worst jobs for the lowest price in this country since they were first brought here, talk about a raw deal.
Everything comes down to economics, and less than 1% of this planets population has control over that. Integration did more for the wealthy elite, not white people, yes the elite are white, but they are the true minority.
I still dont agree with how you generalize your statements, I am white, yet I do not see 1 single penny from black hands, I know hundreds of white people that are in the same situation, I will gladly accept any donations though if you would like to change that.
I dont expect you to agree with my take on things, and perhaps the truth lies somewhere in between both our views of how this world currently operates, but than that is why I am here, I want to see how other people view our world and our social problems.
