"...is so easy to say to their descendants "get over it", isn't it? But it's not that easy to actually get over it when it's your own family's history. Maybe you also think Jews should "get over" the holocaust."
I don't know any Jews who are blaming their misfortunes strictly on the fact that they are Jewish. I don't often hear "It's because I'm Jewish, isn't it?"
And I can't recall the last time I heard a Jewish politician deflecting criticism by playing the "Jew card". Can you recall such an instance?
My family came from eastern Europe. Should I be pissed at the Mongolians because Genghis Kahn raped and murdered my ancestors in the 14th century? Should I be pissed that the Roman's invaded their land and forced them to convert? Should I be pissed that the Ottomans tried, but failed, to do that very same thing.
If you think oppression of black people is unique in the history of our species, think again. You would find it virtually impossible to find a person, any person, alive today, who didn't have an ancestor that was a slave.
"You can put any label on it you like, but black people are judged against that standard whatever you call it."
My boss is a two star general. He's black.
Don't know fer sure, but I'm going to hazard a guess that he has no problems getting loans. Or renting any hotel room he wants. Or getting a table at a restaurant.
