Re: “The Trouble With Angry White Men

Being a native while male South Carolinian, I went to the public swimming pools where Blacks were not allowed, I went to the public library where blacks were not allowed, I rode the city bus in the front, Blacks in the back. I went to decent public schools. Black kids went to public schools with fewer school buses and they got our used books and their teachers [all black] were often incompetent since they had faced the same educational system they were now teaching in. Anyone who thinks that these historical facts do not contaminate the present is simply not being honest. Is a white man who is upset that
a black woman got into law school because of preferential treatment, is he justified in being outraged? Of course, he is justified. At the same time, there is no denying that past discrimination has present and continuing effects. Put another way: our society is messy and complicated and simple explanations and solutions are for teenagers, not for adults. I look forward to more adult comments here - whether I agree with them or not.....Thanks
