    I'm asking if you think that the oppression they face NOW is comparable to "centuries of savagery and continued oppression."

    No real means? It's certainly difficult for ALL people that are born in poverty, but there are means of getting out -- hence the many success stories. Profiling and gerrymandering exist in such, unfortunately, subjective practices such as the Law and Law Enforcement, and don't get me wrong, I don't want to defend the unethical practices of policemen/judges in the 1960s, but is it even remotely comparable today?

    But, despite your views on how severe these are, do you think they are comparable to that of "centuries of savagery and continued oppression"?
