I don't dispute that inequality is still an issue today but the reasons are nuanced and so much more complicated than the slogans on the placards would have you believe. I have and always will be an advocate for equality of opportunity for all, and if the present campaign was designed to help all disadvantaged people, you would have my support.

@protonblack You missed the point entirely. It's about system-wide disparity. A white person in the US can assume they're safe almost wherever they go - at least that their skin color won't be an issue - and be looked as a "neutral", standard individual. And they'd be right. A black person in the US can assume they won't be safe, the color of their skin will set them apart at the very least and they won't be seen as what you imagine when you say "typical" US resident. And they'd be right
