Ques­tion

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - OPINION -

I have a ques­tion for the en­tire coun­try. What is the dif­fer­ence be­tween a Nazi con­cen­tra­tion camp and a plan­ta­tion? For years, blacks had been en­slaved at plan­ta­tions through­out the United States, and no one gives a good damn about that, or at least it ap­pears. You al­ways hear about Nazi this and Nazi camp that with ev­ery­one from the Jews to the Gen­tiles want­ing ret­ri­bu­tion. We don’t get any­thing ex­cept more trou­ble just for be­ing black Amer­i­cans try­ing to sur­vive in white Amer­ica. Ex­plain that one to me. When do we get our prop­erty and pride back that was taken from us?

Atroc­ity is atroc­ity. They are both aw­ful. Noth­ing we can do will undo those atroc­i­ties. Mov­ing for­ward, hope­fully we can learn to treat all peo­ple equally.
