Another excellent article from Dr. Williams. Race relations will continue to be hindered while questions about Legacy issues remain. Dr. Williams does a great job in comparing current and historical data to demonstrate how slavery and Jim Crow laws alone can't explain dysfunction and or feelings of oppression within the live of many people and communities today. Unfortunately when one is feeling oppressed or feeling they are being accused, it is difficult to keep the larger historical context in mind. People who offer differing explanations and solutions to Legacy will have to find ways to present and provide them in a way so there is no way to misunderstandings of ignoring the past, blaming victims, or not holding people accountable.
