    Malcolm X...I read your message several times but I must admit that I find it difficult to follow because it's confusing.

    You ask the question, who does oppression affect? On one hand you say it affects everyone, including the bougoisie or "upper class" of people. On the other hand, you imply that you think it affects everyone except it never seems to hit the white community. I find that to be a contradictory thought.

    First of all, how are you defining oppression? Are you speaking of "unjust or cruel or excessive exercise of authority or power" that is racially motivated? You give several examples of different treatment of whites vs. Blacks so I assume you are.

    You imply that white people are only punished when crimes they commit are heinous, which I don't agree with, but I do agree that Black people are punished from the least to the worst criminal activity--but not always just to survive. Let's be honest, we ain't a perfect people, but we are an oppressed one.
