President Obama and AG Holder have regularly proclaimed that America has a race problem that it is unwilling to confront. These are two men who are doubly blind to this issue. They fail to see and admit the creation of a black hereditary criminal class in America.
The 100th anniversary was in 1965. Just after two Civil Rights Laws had been passed and when black urban riots were occurring in Rochester, Harlem and Philadelphia.
America was clearly not over the Civil War, despite a large celebration at the 50th anniversary with parades in major cities in the North.
Right now is the time for the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War. It would be sometime between the signed surrender of General Lee to General Grant on April 9th and the successive surrenders of the Confederate generals and states over the next four weeks ending with the last battle in Texas on May 13th.
Why don’t Americans celebrate the end of the Civil War?
Because the slaves who were freed have become a serious major burden on the rest of society. The cause for the war, pro and anti-slavery is unresolved. The slave population of 4 million has become a population of 40 million. With nearly 25 million still living in the South.
This 40 million blacks, most heirs to slavery, are still far from integrated into American society. Millions are in jail or prison, have been or will be. Few children live with two parents and a large proportion don’t graduate from high school. These constitute a large population that is unemployed, on welfare and living well below the average American income.
They have destroyed Detroit and are now destroying Baltimore.
A sorry state, for which the black community is doing an inadequate job and complaining rather than changing. And the white community has given up a ‘hopeless’ effort.
