This is why we learn history, it's fucked up, but you have learn from it.
I've learned a lot about history…including the sad fact that humanity never seems to learn anything from it.

I get the desire to not want to let things in the past define you right now, but racism isn't something that disappeared a long time ago, it's still here in the present, and it's still hurting people. White people have done a lot of bad things in the past- and white people are also still doing a lot of bad things today.

Is that the phenomenon where overcrowded, underfunded schools in poor, minority-dominated areas are unable to delver much education or discipline to their students, increasing the push towards crime that is already present in such neighbourhoods?

IMHO, law enforcement as a whole needs a huge overhaul. However, that being said, reforming prisons (and banning the practice of private prisons) would be a good place to start, probably along with ending the "War on Drugs" (which was more or less designed to be a neo-Jim Crow).

Personally, I wouldn't mind at least decriminalizing drugs, and maybe making them legally sold through Government-run facilities that also provide rehabilitation, therapy, and other drug-related treatment services.

Middle East people still suffer from that too and it's even worse. And yet they're less active, even though they should be more so.

What's your excuse?

That's not what I said and I know you're not stupid enough to think that. Unless you're willing to admit otherwise.

It's naive to assume there is some kind of "most oppressed demographic" in the universe. Idiotic, even. Blacks, Chinese Muslims, Jews, etc. have all or are still experiencing oppression. Trying to put it on a scale of "who's more oppressed than the other" is in my culture called a "dick move".

Such childish notions, one fueled by racist and discriminatory ideologies. In an effort to paint a group as oppressed, this method you use undermines the oppression of other groups which in an ironic twist, is oppression in of itself.
