Never, Ever Compare Personal Or Historical Pain

I recall my mother having an experience during her PsyD program wherein a Jewish classmate had just given an emotional talk about lasting psychological trauma the Shoah inflicted upon not only survivors, but descendants.  An African-American classmate then stood up and said, "Honey, being burned alive for 30 minutes ain't nothing compared to being raped for 400 years!"

All of this shit is stupid.  Stop causing pain to each other, maybe?
