Every race of non-white people owe their ability to live as freely as they do in large part to the sacrifices of mainly Black people that made it happen .... because, it has never been a matter of "This is America ... and here are your rights"!! Even though that's what's written in the very Constitution that governs this land. The fight is/was/always has been ours ... and as long as it continues, those currently enjoying and benefitting what we've accomplished so far, should have an obligation to stand with us and for us ... every step of the way.
Now that's a Powerful Member Quote!
The ironic thing about that though, Ebony, is that White poeple also owe their ability to live as freely as they do to African Americans.
