6. What other countries?

What other countries 'incorporated' with an entire segment of human beings reduced to less than human. Literally - only 2/3 of a person?

I read your comment in that thread yesterday too - and chose to ignore it. I thank you for your going the extra mile to explain it.

But I have to ask . . .


Who put the race card in the deck? That's the key question. Since this is the AA Group - I'd appreciate it if was narrowed to focus on the black American experience. That's not to reduce the impact of the White Dominant Culture Power Structure that is very much in existence today on other minorities/ethnicities - but I can only understand it from my POV - hence this group.

I would never be so arrogant as to speak for a full blooded Native American or Americans of Korean, Japanese, Indian, Pakistani, etc etc. descent.
