How about we play read, decipher, and interpret the look on the WHITE MAN'S face both before and after the exchange of slaps in this iconic scene from "In the Heat of the Night"...
Oh, and, yes, there was a time when for a substantial and significant percentage of the white population:
The Emancipation Proclamation was that slap in the face;
The 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments were that slap in the face;
Brown v Board of Ed was that slap in the face;
The Civil Rights, Voting Rights, and Fair Housing Acts were that slap in the face;
The appointment of Thurgood Marshal to the Supreme Court was that slap in the face;
The election of Barack Obama to two full terms as President of the United States was that slap in the face...
Currently, about one third of the white population carries both expressions of before and after that slap in the face intermittently....
If you can't see that, it's because you're one of them.
