    past hurts and present injustices in order to address other wrongs (how all working people are unfairly treated) is not helpful.

    Both exist. Feels like you are in denial of the one, perhaps in your desire to forge ahead along with a lack of perception of why Black people continue to have a reaction to perceived wrongs based on race.

    YOu label them as race baiters and if I understand you correctly, therefore manipulative. When it is their real perceptions.

    PLEASE consider that, if you do not percieve why Black people could be reacting legitimately to real events in the past or present, that you may lack the perception RATHER than it is untrue.

    Perhaps you are not close to many Black people, particularly those who live in predominantly Black communities. That alone keeps most White people from understanding their current experience.
