Knowledge of history is very good.
So is that why?
Do they still feel that in the present?
Why? Is it police persecution and the legal system?
Is it poverty (caused by history)?
I have never been oppressed... so I don't know what it feels like. Do they feel it on a 24/7 basis. That sucks if they do. I think they're cooler than white people (on average).
But I have also known a lot of black people that were police officers, etc... that looked at that stuff (holding up stores) and called it stupid.
