I'm all for EQUALITY and my ancestors probably came over on the BOAT with Susy's ancestors from Italy.
Dr. Martin Luther King was fighting for EQUALITY not special treatment. My Grandfather was fortunate enough to get an education in Italy, today he would NOT be treated as equally in American colleges (at least in my state).
Oh and another thing... my ancestors fed many poor starving people who came to their door (in America), no matter what ethnicity, no matter how little food they (grandparents) had, they fed everyone that came, color was never an issue to them.
They would give out the last bagel chip or banana they had to someone else so don't even get me started on that !
