Thanks for weighing in, Kay. Yes, we white folk are utterly ignorant of the damage our entitlement has done to black families, communities, businesses, and organizations. That's why I wrote the article...I never thought of our IHS as an example of institutional racism but there are, in fact, many examples as to how that's the case. I related only a few in the article.

As you point out, black car owners helped pay for the bulldozers that destroyed their communities.
