AMERICA MAY BE WORSE OFF THAN EVER
By Ron Edwards
February 26, 2016
Every time I hear progressive Black American politicians, community organizers, professors, or certain preachers, the complaints are always the same. “America is simply racist” “the police are out to kill us,” “black lives matter.” Oh I almost forgot! The other standby complaint, “we be held down by da man.” Unfortunately, the legions of black American government school victims are hardwired for duty in the army of progressive destruction of American society.
I find it ironic, that during the height, or low of American segregation during the early to mid 20th century, black Americans were mostly upwardly mobile. They didn’t sit around seeking to live off of government handouts or beg to be allowed into white owned or dominated establishments. That held true until the civil or bastardized rights movement. Segregation was seen as something to overcome through self-determination via black owned businesses of all stripes.
Black neighborhoods throughout America during the 1930s, 1940s, and the 1950s were chock full of businesses ranging from mom and pop grocery markets to four and five star hotels in cities like Cleveland, Detroit, and the famous Harlem in New York City. Just so no one gets it twisted, I am not advocating segregation by any means. But rather, making astute observations concerning segregation during the twentieth century and today’s politically motivated and voluntary segregation. For example, on Sunday mornings when millions of Americans are in church learning about and worshiping our creator.
Of course today, black Americans can walk into any public park, business, church, etc. without wrongful treatment from racist democrats, or their retired or hidden allies the Ku Klux Klan. Every so often, I look at old pictures of American cities and many neighborhoods. I marvel at the huge number of businesses that used to line the avenues and boulevards of Black American neighborhoods in decades past. In fact, beginning in the late 1930s until the mid-1960s there was very little difference between most black neighborhoods and white working class enclaves. They too were populated with many businesses.
In fact, business vacancies were the exception, not the norm like you will find today in numerous black inner city neighborhoods. Even when it came to vacations, black people were banned from many amusement parks, beaches and resorts. But they didn’t simply sit around and cry like babies. Black Americans acted like adults. They purchased land and built their own resorts and enjoyed life. In the 1930s, Black American entrepreneur George W. Tyson saw the democrat’s segregationist policy as an opportunity to create business prosperity for himself and others. So he purchased 47 acres of beachfront property in Horry County, South Carolina. Tyson soon constructed the Black Hawk night club, which became an enormously popular location for blacks living in the area.
Since Tyson did well, he was able to persuade other black businessmen to open establishments in the area. In 1936, Tyson had ten purchases for plots on his land from other businessmen. Those enterprises thrived as well. The tract along what became the Atlantic Beach was eventually filled with eateries, hotels, banks and many smaller shops. People from all over visited and vacationed throughout the region. Because of democrat party/KKK segregationist practices and laws, Atlantic Beach also became the host for many prominent Black American singers who performed at nearby Myrtle Beach.
Unfortunately, the fun was blown away by a double whammy consisting of Hurricane Hazel in 1954. Some entrepreneurs rebuilt. But the final death blow came as a result of anti-segregationist laws being enforced. Thus Blacks were more than eager to spend their money where they had been refused before. By the mid-1960s, business owners in the now downtrodden were determined to revitalize the economic status and preserve it’s history. The well efforts to renew the historic black business and resort area fell flat and remains a zone of abandonment to this day.
That sad scenario has been repeated throughout the republic, because unlike other ethnic groups, blacks were persuaded through the civil or as my Dad called it, the bastardized rights rights movement to relinquish large scale economic pursuits for socialist/progressive oriented politics and policies. The long term results have been devastating to the quality of life in the majority of black American neighborhoods and enclaves. Sure some blacks have succeeded in the political ranks. But unfortunately, they have joined the ranks of the oppressive democrat party and carl Marx and have legislated against economic prosperity via higher than normal local taxes and prohibitive regulations against business activity. The results have been devastating to say the very least.
To this day, the American black community languishes in economic, moral and spiritual doldrums. Capitalism and free market economics are now wicked concepts in the minds of over eighty percent of Black Americans. I say that based on consistent voting patterns of Black Americans overall since the middle 1960s. Sadly, most Black Americans are today openly anti American, (they stick up for Obama and Muslim terrorists) while being quick to condemn Christianity, America and the comparatively few in number, Black conservatives.
The you owe me mentality is also now very prevalent and continues to contribute to a reversal of fortunes, financially, socially, and mentally. This dangerous way of thinking is now creeping into the white millennial generation, most of whom are rabidly in favor of socialist Bernie Sanders. On the surface this seems very dire for the nation, and technically it is. But despite it all, there is a gradual awakening of the sleeping giant of Americans who will not allow this nation to go the way of those who prefer to simply exist under the godless boot heel of democrat party/progressive existence.
Stay tuned America, your rebirth and restoration to greatness is soon to occur and will be televised to the world.
