Roxie, I beg to differ with you a little. Even though there are group of people who have been discriminated against in the U.S. The struggle of African people in the U.S. is unique (not I was oppressed more). When AA's were fighting for their rights, i.e. schooling, etc. I did not see other group of people in the fight facing dogs and pigs. Most others were happy being second class citizens as long as AA's were third class or worse off then them. Look at the example of jews who are getting reperations in Europe for their experience during the second World War. I don't see gypsies, gays, slavic people, etc included. Jewish people look at their experience as being unique. I am not saying that oppressed people should not struggle and be free. All I am saying is that they all don't use AA's experience as their yardstick of measuring their oppression. AA's blood, sweat and tears has already provided Affirmative Action goodies to all others groups like the Chinese, Latinos, Gays, etc. I just don't buy the idea that "Since Blacks are no longer oppressed, we too should not be oppressed".
