Racial History in America, 1700 to today
First we owned them--Africans, later to be African-Americans--and beat them and kept them down and tortured them and killed lots and then, after the Civil War and ever since, we locked lots and lots of them in jails and prisons and wouldn't let them live near us or get or have a great education or the good jobs.
And that takes us up to today.
And all us whites, out in our comfortable suburbs don't understand.
