An anonymous history professor at U.C. Berkeley has penned an open letter against the current narratives of racial injustice underpinning the BLM movement and ongoing protests over the death of George Floyd.
Its authenticity was confirmed by Kentucky State University Assistant Professor of Political Science, Wilfred Reilley, who says he was sent a copy of the letter along with Stanford University economist Thomas Sowell.
The article is political dynamite:

I read the article…it has many truths but it has one huge lie.
1. Just because one problem X is not the cause of all the problems of Z, it does not mean that X is not a problem or is a trivial problem.
2. Blacks were enslaved by White Americans, not 3,500 years ago like Jews under Egypt.
3. And the same racism that caused slavery did not disappear like a flip of a switch. The same racism continued in Jim Crow laws, segregation, etc.
4. This same racism led to certain CONCRETE, MEASURABLE, DEVASTATING conditions that perpetuates the income problems, crime, etc. that Blacks have including a portion (YES-NOT ENTIRELY due to Whites which some Black activists need to also accept).
5. If Whites were suddenly enslaved and then discriminated around to the point of a Black police casually choking a White person in bright day light—and no, this is NOT an isolated case) and then then the Blacks dump the Whites in the environmental conditions that Black children, Black neighborhoods, Black schools are subjected to, then Whites would also increase crime on Whites and the problem would continue year after year, decade after decade.
If anyone has trouble understanding the 5 points above that a high school educated person should be able to understand, then he or she has a problem. And if a history teacher has this problem, then he or she does not know the ABC’s of history.
there are other more current reasons for black underachievement and conditions to do with culture and other factors. Blaming whites is a poor excuse and perpetuates anti-white racism, which is now an acceptable prejudice in the USA and UK.
