This was not in the way way back past. My parents grew up through this.

This is why I laugh when people say that racism is over because slavery ended so long ago. NEWSFLASH, slavery ended on Dec. 18, 1865, only 148 years years ago… only 3 or 4 generations ago. My grandmother’s grandmother was a slave. Then when you add the Jim Crow era and the Civil Rights era, black people have only been “people” by law for 50 years.
