In the balance, Barack’s reparations are Biden’s equity programs. Inclusivity + revitalization seems to be a new form of codifyable gentrification.

And LBJ’s programs were Roosevelt’s reparations.

As for gentrification, things seem to be moving toward the suburbs, correct?

“Equity” to white people often means losing something to minorities, so the whites resist not entirely out of racism, but fear of losing.  When minorities have to fight tooth and nail just for equity, then it should be understandable why they sometimes have to push for more just to break even, and the push makes them look like radicals.

Think about all the times that people who were previously held down are given freedom, and how they reacted to their freedom.  Blacks freed from slavery, women freed from the house, blacks and women given the vote, Japanese released from internment, Native Americans given a chance, and gays not being outlawed - the white male fear of bloody retribution did not happen, yet the belief of bloody retribution persists, despite the remarkable gains society as a whole realizes when more people are included.

Division is pain.  Inclusion is prosperity.

My theory is that the dawn of emotional intelligence is ushering in a better way of understanding how to measure historical struggle in light of commerce. Still there seems to a disconnect between anti racism and emotional intelligence that’s something.

Wherever the local right type “should” be, I guess.
