And then amend it, every law that ever prevented
Our survival since our arrival

Meaning

The cancellation of the discrimination of the minority classes has been a long, hard journey, one which is still on-going. Affirmative Action is used in many spheres in order to counter the history of the effects of a history of discrimination and exploitation by the ruling classes. Of course, the arrival of many minorities was the result of a despicable custom which was put to an end on December 6th, 1865.
