I do not have your guilt complex and as long as people like you continue to pimp the slavery line, you destroy the incentive for blacks to move forward, you give an entire race a fall back position. By trying to be the understanding, sympathetic nice white liberal, you undermine drive and you telegraph to others you just can't expect more of these people.<quoted text>
Yes, as a white person I'm the first to admit I've benefited indirectly from our history of slavery & discrimination, just like every other white person in America. Which is why I support continued reparations to blacks in the form of affirmative action, education reform, and other programs designed to correct the ongoing effects of generational institutionalized discrimination.
We can likely never fully correct damage that's been done to an entire race of Americans just because they happened to have a different skin color than the majority, but if we truly believe in the ideals of America, then we must continue to try.
If you really want to be of any help, you would want to demand the current crop of black social leaders be replaced by accomplished blacks whose sense of worth comes from their own accomplishment, not from being from slaves.
You will then demand from the colleges and universities that they replace a lot of studies like privilege and instead start intense instruction on business development and economics.
Granted everyone else in the Democrat Party seems not to want to be bothered by such a thing so it might give blacks a heads up on everyone else.
This done they won't need "concerned" white liberals like you to "help" them and that will be a VERY GOOD place for blacks in America to be.
