Why is it when a black person points out injustice done to their people it's pulling the race card?


I've noticed anytime a person of color speaks of hundreds of years of injustice to their people they are told they are pulling the race card or are told to get over it. Yet when a Jewish person brings up the Holocaust or about how people are antisemitic they aren't perceived as pulling the race card? Why the double standard?

    Eugenics program was created just for african americans. In fact hitler praised American scientist in his book and sent his scientist to america to learn eugenics which is still apart of society today. The iq test was created by a eugenicist.

    Do you know why they started considering jews, Italians and Irish white? The number of African americans grew and they needed to give the "white" population a broader definition for more numbers.

    Old--It would seem that your whole identity is focused on the color of your skin and what you claim as the past, which you did not have to experience. That is a very sad existence. I would be resentful too.

    I agree with you. To acknowledge that african americans have been mistreated with genocide and slavery to this day seems to make europeans upset to point the ugly truth. Once we can face that ulgy truth can the nation start to heal together.

    You are correct color isn't a race and we are all apart of the human race no need to get offensive. The point I was making is that african americans are constantly mistreated. From slavery on till the present. 60 mil were killed in the middle passage
