NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- American International Group (AIG - Get Report) CEO Robert Benmosche's grandfather, Herman, escaped persecution in Lithuania to come to America. Most American families can tell similar stories.African-American families, on the whole, can't. Their persecution began the day they came here, as slaves. And it didn't end with slavery, but continued for a century in the form of chain gangs, lynch mobs, and poll taxes across the South.
