For writers like Nicholas Kristof and Ian Buruma, it would seem that it is perfectly all right to tolerate "overheated" language in talking of social injustice, provided the speaker is an African-American, because we all deplore the slavery and discrimination which this group has suffered, to the point of assuming the guilt of early American settlers long dead. (The descendants of the Arabs who sent black Africans into slavery do not seem to be burdened with such guilt). more>>>
"...who has personally suffered even more than American slaves did" More than the average or the more than worst case? Lots of US Slave women had their children removed by force when they were toddlers or 5, or 10... The kids were sold for money. Worse than rape and beating and who knows what kind of S&M? Comparing pain is tough. Best not go there.
