It's so sad to think of all the miss opportunities black families have missed that white families so easily had, just due to where your zip code is.
It all feels like we're in a 100 meter race together, but white people get to start at the 90 meter line..how do you even catch up?
Recently I learned about an area in my hometown. Always referred to as the ghetto by family and friends, and were always told to avoid that area. In the 60s that area was a majority black community, but one of their schools were burned down. The (white) fire fighters refused to put it out, and the fire spread through most of the neighborhood. Violent protests erupted afterwards.
If that area hadn't been segregated, if that area the fire fighters would put out the fire because it was a fire, not because of the color of your skin - who knows how that neighborhood could have thrived today.
