Why is it that whenever people (white people and black people) talk about the injustice that black people faced in this country. Thay all seemed to talk slavery, and then skip about a hundred years and talk about civil rights. As if those two times were the only dark times in our history here in this country. I had a conversation once with a co-worker and I made the statement that after slavery, more black people were lynched because slavery in an ironic way shielded black people from many random attacks. He blew up because he thought that I was defending slavery, he didn't have a clue as to what I was saying. of course I was talking only about physical violence, he wasn't hearing it. After slavery black people expected to be free citizens, but instead of being property of individual devils they became property of all the devils in this country.
