It presents a perspective unfiltered by academia but colored by the harsh realities of life at the bottom.
It debunks the “False Equivalence” that was put in place after the Civil War, that suggested that the “Economic Status” of the newly freed Americans of African descent was synonymous with that of the general White population and that they were indelibly polar opposite and as the government provided social services to the Blacks it took away a like number of those services i.e. Dollars, from Whites. This fallacy was put in place mainly to keep the two groups, specifically, the majority poor Whites and the minority newly freed Blacks, at odds in both the social society and in the economic perception of conditions as it pertained to them on a personal level.
This fallacy became far more ominous because of “RACISM” on the social side because the poor whites gained the ally of over 90% of the total white population in pledging, together , this “Anti-Amalgamation Doctrine” that prevented the minority blacks from ever fully “Assimilating” into the white social society.
This gave birth to the original wealth “redistribution” claim of Whites, with the clamor over the 46,000,000 acres of land set aside for the newly freed Blacks in the “Southern Homestead Act of 1866.” The clamor was so loud and vociferous that it actually prevented what would have been the foundation of setting the newly freed Americans of African descent on an economic path that would have allowed them to progress in the new society on a more equal economic footing without the need to integrate further into the white society but one which actually would have naturally kept them out.
That the powers to be at that time could not see the forest for the trees, it leaves us today in this “Economic Inequality” debate that no one seems to have an answer for.
We believe we have the solution here in my book “RACISM and HATE: an AMERICAN REALITY” pick up your copy today and let’s talk about it.
