Today’s highly interesting read (10/02/17): There Are No Oppressed People in America

“We recognize the need for all of us to work together in the face of an administration that condones widespread oppression of all those most vulnerable among us.”
From a statement by March for Racial Justice.  The group held a march in Washington D.C. Saturday. The movement claims “It is our duty to dismantle oppression.”

Today’s read is from one of my favorite columnists, John Hawkins.

Never before have so many claimed to be so oppressed and mistreated over so little as Americans in 2017.

Do you realize the stunning level of self-absorption and self-deception that it takes to believe you’re oppressed in America? Real oppression is women in Saudi Arabia getting to drive for the first time in 2017.

There’s more in this great piece.
