    t. Those things are white people problems, so they will always be resolved through the political system. Only racism is a problem for people of color, so that a lot more difficult to tackle. We did have a bloody civil war over slavery, and a violent conflict over civil rights.  

    All those other things you mention are important,  but those are also white people's issues too. As we can see with marriage equality, we arent going to have any armed conflict over the thing because many white men are gay, poor, athiest or whatever. No white men are black.

      but the violent conflict over civil rights wasn't out of line for "white people problems". The labor movement wasn't exactly without armed conflict. Think the WV Mine Wars and plenty of other examples. You can argue that was resolves through the political system, but then so was Civil rights.

      The Empire never ended.
