As Stewart reads the list, and you can hear the naysayers claiming Jim Crow's not true, add in a little context:
In his massive history Reconstruction, Eric Foner recounts incidents of black people being attacked for not removing their hats; for refusing to hand over a whiskey flask; for disobeying church procedures; for “using insolent language”; for disputing labor contracts; for refusing to be “tied like a slave.” Sometimes the attacks were intended simply to “thin out the niggers a little.”
Awww, but that was back when the cops were slave catchers and whatnot. It's the difference between those two lists (who drinks from a whiskey flask anymore?) that police, and their conservative brethren in the media, demand blacks salute - as whites "making progress".
And,yes - no matter how long it takes for whites to get there - blacks are supposed to be happily! buying their bullshit, while waiting for this progress to arrive (sooooome day) and whites continue pulling this shit, facing nothing worse than a few jokes being made on cable.
Pull my fucking finger,...
