Good work by Colbert and Stewart

Pinkerite is a long-time fan of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, but I really didn't expect them to get into the socio-economics of American post-Emancipation racism from the Homestead Act to Levittown. KUDOS!

This history is essential for understanding the African American failure to thrive, which leads to things like lower test scores, which is used by race science proponents like Charles Murray and friends to claim as evidence that black people are innately, evolutionarily inferior.

Stewart boils it down perfectly:
"while (black people) were fighting for equality, white people were building equity."
And that's why so many of the IDW hate the 1619 ProjectHow dare those African Americans talk about the actual circumstances of America!

Maybe - as Stewart points out in this clip - if the right-wing race science mongers hear it from two white men it will register in their brains.
