    Obviously it's been going on in this country for over 300 years. When a people were sold as livestock, when the husband was sold away from his family, when a wife was sold away from her family, when children were sold away from their family, there was or is nary a formulation of a cohesive family unit. If any nationality or race were treated in this manner their families would be dysfunctional units because that's the way it was for generations upon generations. It's easier to turn on each other than it is to focus on individuals who you would consider overlords because it never turned out well to resist. Black families or families of African ancestry for the above listed reasons lack the ability to form a cohesive block, a block of humanity that would be tremendously powerful, if unified. Therein lies the rub, and the fear! Unfortunately, you see the powers that be pit black and brown folks against each other, thereby keeping those black and brown folks at bay and occupied with each other. There will never be equality in this country because it is too ingrained in the fibers of this nation to be prejudiced, bigoted and judgmental. Unfortunately, we've reached a point where it will continue to spiral out of control until we end up as every other world power has, destroyed from the inside by the disintegration of its civilization.
