Hubbard's observation reminded me of my 1972 job interview...
One thing I have learned with experience and especially working for the Federal government is that most people cannot face a set of facts without adding something to them not evident in those facts. Most people with Negro ancestors can make up facts by adding two and two and get whatever they want. Dr. Williams is correct, but in being correct he also manages not to invent facts. Most of what we are lead to treat at "education" like the quote "Hitler was a house painter" or "George Washington had wood teeth" is a lie. Ergo, lots of "educated people" are simply uneducated, especially about the detriments of slavery.
Jon Hubbard, a Republican member of the Arkansas House of Representatives, has a book, titled "Letters to the Editor: Confessions of a Frustrated Conservative." Among its statements for which Hubbard has been criticized and disavowed by the Republican Party is, "The institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise. The blacks who could endure those conditions and circumstances would someday be rewarded with citizenship in the greatest nation ever established upon the face of the Earth."
