The issue really isn't about LE


as much as it is the systemic situation blacks find themselves in. Many blacks are victims of a situation today where none of us are really the perpatrator of this injustice, and therein lies the problem.

The historical injustices to the black race in this country were horrific. I don't think anyone argues that. Did those injustices contribute to the situations many blacks find themselves in today. I believe the answer to that question is, definitely yes.

Yet many of us non blacks had absolutely nothing to do with the cause of this systematic situation. The causes were generations ago. That's why when the subject of reparations come up, many of us say, "you want me to pay for something a bunch of Europeans did over 200 years ago did? My family came from Italy 75 yrs ago?"

I acknowledge the injustices. I empathize with/for the black community. What do we do about it? We've got many social programs to address poverty, education, food, etc. What else can we do?
