40. the flaw in your logic

Flaw in the logic?

1. It assumes that all people have to be perfect in order to ever be taken seriously. Nobody is perfect.

2. You are judging people of the past based on modern ideas of equality and culture. If you lived in those times as a white person you would have very likely done a lot of what the people you protest were doing.
