No, the premise is that poor white people today have it as bad as poor black people today, not that they had it as bad as black people under Jim Crow laws or slavery. It should be about what makes a statement racist or not, which honestly should be the intention behind the statement, not just the way the statement is perceived due to what did happen in the past due to racism. We are talking about what happens to people today and why. This is what the conversation should be about, instead of what happened 60+ years ago and before.
And here comes Rouge with the reality hammer and BOOM! everything makes sense.
and in many instances, such a suggestion is ignorant of history & facts on the ground.
No, ignoring what makes a statement actually racist is a big part of the problems around racism and claims of racism today. If you fail to look at why a person makes a comment or what actually makes it racist, then you are not actually trying to identify true racism, you are simply trying to stir up trouble.

It is not childish. Giving preferential treatment to certain people based simply on race, is.
What does a black person calling another black person "nigga" or "nigger" have to do with ... "Giving preferential treatment to certain people based simply on race?" Can we please stay on one subject at a freaking time? I am tired of people replying to my statements and they have no freaking clue what I just said.
