"I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your experiences and history," sounds like a lot of "centrists" who believe in civil rights but don't understand that economic justice will help poor minorities. Here's one for you: “It didn't cost the nation one penny to integrate lunch counters. It didn't cost the nation one penny to guarantee the right to vote. But now we are dealing with issues that cannot be solved without the nation spending billions of dollars and undergoing a radical redistribution of economic power.” - MLK Jr. But apparently, that's ignorant to you.
