It's enough to make one cry. "WHY?" The first slaves were sold by blacks, but never get demonized for it. Many whites fought the great battle and died making the black man free. While I agree there was much heartache from evil racist idiots, the blacks have no reason to blame ALL whites, as most do not fall into that category. Sharpton, and Jackson has made millions spreading the lie on victim-hood, and the blacks embrace it, which does nothing more than leave them uneducated, living in poverty. In riots they burn their own houses down, and kill one another & justify their actions. I look at many great and wonderful blacks who have successed, and hear other blacks call them Uncle Tom or Oreos. it's like their badge of honor is to fail

But there's a painful lesson to be learned from decades of political hustling and counsel by intellectuals and urban experts.

In 1960, Detroit's population was 1.6 million. Blacks were 29 percent, and whites were 70 percent. Today, Detroit's population has fallen precipitously to 707,000, of which blacks are 84 percent and whites 8 percent....
