she aint say nothing that bad really. 

i don't think she's looking at the civil rights movements, and inequality in the workplace and otherwise per say, she's mainly looking at the standard of living for the usual middle class family in that era. what she said was rather short-sighted, but not automatically wrong.

I can understand why you're upset by it, Momei. Not only did the comment come out of nowhere, but she was obviously ignoring the high levels of violence towards black people, as well as the legally mandated segregation, that characterizes American society of 50 years ago. 

Likewise, she's ignoring the fact that these statistics are the way they are currently because of "white moderates" like herself, who say one thing in an attempt to be "helpful," but continue to hold up institutions that tear us down, and tear down institutions that want to help.
