to hit the nail on the head

Kimberly Jones hit the nail on the head (= identified exactly what is causing a problem or situation) when she came up with her ‘Monopoly analogy’ to describe the inferior position black people find themselves in – particularly in America. You can watch part of her powerful and eloquent speech below, edited with an interview and some historical facts to expand on her speech. (The uncut version, captured by a friend when she was taking part in a demonstration is easily found online).
