Blast from the past: saying the quiet part out loud

Filed under: Alameda — Lauren Do @ 6:09 am

From December 1965, essentially what people were probably saying behind their closed doors but this lady was willing to say publicly. Of course we now know (well some of us) about how many entitlements are given (and still given) to white folks and middle class folks that were not available to Black people. The pull yourself up by your bootstraps trope was particularly more laughable given that the Civil Rights Act had just been signed a year before.
