7. It's not a "failure to grasp". It's racism.

Americans would embrace all of those concepts wholeheartedly and may be socialism itself if the only recipients of these benefits were White people. If African Americans and Latinos also benefit, then they would rather not have it at all.

Mass transit is a prime example. When African Americans were treated as equal citizens and could ride any where on the bus in the 1960s. The response was to de-fund and eliminate public transportation.
