You have moved the goal post, now limiting your statement to only Black Women in the US. Second, you are committing the Straw Man fallacy twice. No where in my statements did I say or imply that one group's condition is justified, because another groups condition is worse. You are the one that made an unqualified statement about the level of oppression Black Women experience, saying that nobody is more oppressed. I pointed out that a person can effectively argue that is not the case.

Now to answer your new qualified statement; I still say it can be effectively argued against, when considering the economic and education status of many Native America and Central American Women in the US.
No goal post has been moved. I have been talking about strictly the US from the beginning to the end but hey if you want to go universal you can involve black women in the poor areas of Africa that has it worse than everybody who also deserve some credit and praise.

I made that sun statement just in case you were implying that its justified.

It can be argued against but even the Native Americans got something. We are still waiting on our reparations.

Actually, your first statement can again be effectively argued against. While Sub-Saharan Africa is the region with the highest prevalence (percentage of population) of hunger, with one person in four there undernourished. Asia is the continent with the most hungry people - two thirds of the total of hungry people on the entire planet. So statistically Black Women in Sub-Saharan Africa have a greater chance per capita for starvation, there are overall more Asian Women starving than Black Women.

You are correct, Native Americans have been offered and some have accepted the offer of reparations. The amount they were awarded to receive in 2012 was 1.5 billion dollars worth of currency and 1.9 billion dollars worth of land, their population number is 2.4 million. Divide amount to be paid out by their population number and if everyone of them accepted the offer each verified Native American would have received 1416 dollars worth in currency + land value. Their reparations nowhere near equals the harm done to them by the US government.

Also, in 2015 the Federal Government settled with 41 indian tribes for the amount of 940 million dollars over mismanagement of funds. Even with that addition, I consider what was payed out to be a paltry sum compared to the harm the Native Americans received at the hands of the US government.

So you comparing a section of Africa to the continent of China?

How about comparing the whole continet of Africa to the continent of China. You will see that Africa is worse of than China aka a world power.

Despite the criticism of what Native Americans got they still got something compared to our nothin.

So basically using your logic youd tell poor kids in those areas you have seen that are worse than the US that they should be thankful that the sun isnt closer because youve seen planets that are closer to the sun?
An excellent analogy...which you convey clearly. (I'mma borrow it, thanks)
