25. Please check out the most recent MLK thread in this forum

http://www.democraticunderground.com/118716251

We've been talking about alot of the same things that you're talking about here. In GD, I have also talked about housing discrimination that black folks still face TODAY in 2015, but it doesn't do any good. We've had a few folks come into this forum lately and try to "school" us on how racism and discrimination works (just take a second and think about that... Boggles the mind, don't it??) and how social justice does or should take a back seat to economic justice. And every last one of them has slinked back out to (hopefully) not be seen here again.

Take a look at the attacks on a black poster in this thread http://www.democraticunderground.com/1251415914

Now, bigtree and I have scrapped before. We've scrapped HARD. But look at how he is being treated in this thread for having the unmitigated gall to DARE to ask that Sanders, a Congressman for 25 years who is now looking to become president, address the issues of all Americans? And it always kills me when his clueless supporters scream "but he marched with MLK!!1" as if that does one damn thing to explain what he will be doing if he becomes president.

I don't know if it's an agenda or privileged ignorance or what. But you're right, whatever it's about, it ain't about helping and supporting us. They couldn't make that more obvious.
