45. Your are like me in many ways but much more articulate. My wealthy sister and I had an argument

 

recently when I mentioned poor, African Americans who grow up in poverty with crime and violence in schools have it much more difficult than we middle class, well educated white folks. I was speaking to her from what I see while defending both poor Black men and women in criminal cases who constantly get profiled while driving and even shopping in stores. My sister and her husband, who are Trumpers, were incredulous, like no way, they have the same opportunities as we had to make it in America. The ignorance and arrogance is simply astounding. White privilege is a very definite aspect of our society which most whites people either deny or donít understand. No All Americans do not have the same opportunities and start at very different places.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
