Do you think that down playing the results of oppression by saying "we were all slaves at some time" falls into this rule?

How far would you have to go back to trace your slave lineage? How far would you have to go back to a time when your family had to enter a theater from the back? How far would you have to go to remember a time when your color of skin was being questioned suitable for the white house?

You still want to pretend it's the same? That you have it just as hard as someone else when it comes to racism...

I think it's commendable that you want to state we're all equal, but even Jesus recognised that some people have it worse off than others due to society thinking...

I like to imagine a world, far in the future, where everyone ends up having the same skin color. Of course, we'll probably find something to frown upon. Wrong eye color? To short? To hairy?

Ya' gotta love it!
