Well some 50 odd years after the end of the war of 1812, and a civil war and millions of lives later, the slavery oppression ended. It would have been cheaper and better to have just offered the slaves their freedom in exchange to fighting against the British. But oppressors often do stupid things.
No. You're the one playing the game. Laws are to be both just and fair. Just means a good law in the first place. Fair means equally applied. For example I believe it is just for a drunk who kills someone in a car accident to be civilly and criminally penalized. But if someone decided to except certain people from that law it would not be fair. And it's not just a black and white thing. No group should be given preferential treatment under the law whether it's blacks, whites, cops, politicians or whatever. Let's take the cop example. If cops routinely get away selling drugs, does the fact that occasionally one gets really sent up the river make what happens to everyone else fair? Of course not.
Ummmm....are we reading the same stories? In every story written about Colin it's that he's taking about the suffering of black people in general. Really if you are that uninformed on the subject you should do some more reading before attempting to comment. Here's the CK quote that got everyone in an uproar. Note that he was talking about the oppression of people of color as a group and not the oppression of himself personally.
