  • Glaring limits of the Civil Rights Act: We need to redistribute wealth...

    The NEXT logical step of course.....EQUALITY of OUTCOMES.....

    "Clearly, more progress needs to be made on the anti-discrimination front, but anti-discrimination, even if it were entirely successful, would still never be enough to rectify the economic harms inflicted by centuries of slavery and racial apartheid.

    One of the consequences of the racial caste system that characterized American society prior to 1960 is that black families were prevented from accumulating economic wealth. Because wealth is the kind of thing that is passed down generations and the kind of thing that grows and grows, this initial racist starting point has opened up a yawning racial wealth gap that simply cannot be closed without intentional policy aimed at doing so"

    Yes because the average black family has prospered for much under Obama.
