Powell explains:

 

  • Segregation was [and is] about separating access to opportunity.
  • The War on Drugs is really a war on Black people.
  • We may have a plutocracy now. Rule by the rich.
  • White people don’t see Black people as being part of the country, as being legitimate members.
  • We bailed out banks, and GM with billions of dollars, but we did not bail out Detroit to help the African-Americans who live there.
