A 400 year history of white supremacist terror, brutality and injustice. From 1619 to the present day. Slavery. Kidnapping. Three-fifths compromise. Fugitive Slave Act. Sharecropping. Jim Crow. Ku Klux Klan. Lynchings. Plessy v. Ferguson. Poll tax. Redlining. Ghettoization. Unequal housing. Urban renewal. Last hired, first fired. Assassination. Stop and frisk. Broken windows. Profiling. Police brutality. Mass incarceration.
This is not God's plan for us: "Love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another."
The way out is truth, reconciliation and reparation.
