Brooks finally admitted the Great Society was never intended to get anyone out of poverty but was intended to lock blacks into poverty so they would be cheap farm labor.

Boy, THERE'S a plan that backfired bigtime! Folks don't make very good cheap labor once you've destroyed their work ethic.

He also believed that only blacks would get on the govt dole and whites would then have the jobs that black then held.

My old man tried to tell Brooks it wasn't going to work that way, that LBJ's Great Society would create a permanent underclass not just for blacks but also whites, but Brooks would have none of it.

After that my old man, an FDR democrat, never voter for another dem for president.
