Then there’s what’s happening on the ground.....
Im 64, I remember the segregated water fountains and bathrooms. There was no black middle class.
Look around you now. You see many, many black families out for lunch at local restaurants. You see what they drive-the same cars middle class whites drive.
Twenty years ago, if you saw an interracial couple, the male would be black and the female white. Now you can see black females with white men.
Notice how criminal gangs are multi-racial now? And not just on TV.
I remember times when, if you saw blacks and whites together in any form, it was because they were thrust together by laws. Now what you see is by choice.
I dont know how blacks can look around and not see that yes, there are obstacles, but whitey is not the one in their way. At some point, there should be a catharsis, an event or series of events that create a catharsis, a realization of the absurdity of continuing to wallow in a manufactured victimhood that is so culturally debilitating.
I dont think that game-changing moment will occur during this election, theres such an emotional investment in the first black President on the part of blacks.
But it will come soon.
Say what you will about Romney, but he went to the NAACP and he didnt pander to them. Thats what has to happen more often.
Many blacks, like Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Larry Elder, Star Parker, Angela McGlowan, Allen West, Reverend Peterson, Bill Cosby, and now Mia Love are attempting to tell their brothers and sisters that they have exchanged one plantation for another-that government dependency is the new plantation. The eureka moment will take place within this analogy, IMHO.
“.......I dont know how blacks can look around and not see....”
Jackson, Sharpton, Wright, etc., etc., etc. They have made careers, and vast wealth keeping their own on the Democrat plantation.
That is very well stated.
Great post. I hope you are right. Logic would dictate this outcome. But in the short term the Democrat Party will keep pushing revisionist history and promoting emotions over logic. They will keep stirring the cauldron and fanning the flames. And they will need to keep a permanent subclass hoodwinked, angry and ignorant.
