Also, you don’t examine a tree by looking at it’s damaged branches. You must 1st start off by examining the root of the tree… and the root to the reason why black people are so poor begins with slavery. A few hundred years of free labor, picking cotton, and working to build railroads for pennies on the dollar. Making other folks rich, while not collecting a penny.

The point that she left out is that the playing field was never even for 100s of years. If one race gets a couple hundred years’ head start, that will put them at a greater advantage. Yes, we are no longer in hand cuff, but every wound leaves behind a scar. And the scar that slavery left behind was a massive deficit. While our white counterparts had the privilege of passing down their wealth to their grandkids for generations, we never had that privilege.
