“America will never forgive blacks for slavery”

“The Germans will never forgive the Jews for Auschwitz” is an older, similar saying.

“America will never forgive African Americans for slavery.” Is there an equivalent in Britain today? #BerkeleyEnglish122

@jbouie I’m surprised a white-black variant of that old “The Germans will never forgive the Jews for Auschwitz” line has never caught on.

As the old joke goes, “the Germans will never forgive the Jews for Auschwitz.” Or another variant: “America will never forgive blacks for slavery.” Oppressors and abusers (and the beneficiaries of past abuses) often project their own guilt, self-loathing and dehumanization onto their victims, then hate them for being evidence – the living (or dead) proof – of the abusers’ moral rot. So it is with the rich and the poor, as a new story at Alternet demonstrates.
