I was watching this documentary on the history of black street gangs in LA and it turns out that in the 40’s black families started moving into white neighborhoods and since it wasn’t segregated by law like in the south the kids went to school with the white kids. The white kids started attacking the black kids so the black kids started coming together after school to protect each other from getting their asses kicked. Eventually the black kids started kicking ass and so the white families started moving out. It occurred to me that if white families across the U.S. had treated the blacks as equal human beings we could all be singing Kumbaya with each other today but they chose to hate instead. They gave black people no choice but to fight. How backwards?
