Who said anything about excusing ****ty behavior?How long will ****ty behavior be excused due to a past that none of those acting ****ty lived through?
People who say this don't want to move forward so much as they want everyone to forget the past. 400 years of systematic oppression cannot be fixed overnight. It took more than 100 years to get from owning people to passing a law that said the government cannot actively treat people like **** simply because they are black.Time to move.... FORWARD!
Somehow, during those 400 years or so of systematic oppression, a great many black people learned to not trust white people for some bizarre reason. During the Jim Crow era they learned that the police don't protect and serve black people nearly as much as they protect and serve whites. Are things different now? Sure. But trust is earned, and it ain't going to come overnight. And you know what makes it harder to move forward? A bunch of pissed off crackers saying stupid **** like "Get over it". That doesn't do anything to move us forward, in fact, it does the exact opposite.
