Wish I could give that post a thousand recs, Carolyn. (I'm going to link to it in the Thread Header.)

I have never read a more accurate explanation of what happened to cause the mess we are in today - and I laughed out loud at this sentence, "But nothing changes no matter how much money is spent, no matter how many laws are passed, no matter how many black geniuses are portrayed on TV...."

This last paragraph perfectly describes how I feel:

"Our leaders don't seem to understand just how tired their white subjects are with this experiment. They don't understand that white people aren't out to get black people; they are just exhausted with them. They are exhausted by the social pathologies, the violence, the endless complaints, and the blind racial solidarity, the bottomless pit of grievances, the excuses, and the reflexive animosity. The elites explain everything with racism and refuse to believe that white frustration could soon reach the boiling point."

MY GOD! never before have I read anything that rings as 'true' as this Baltimore Sun piece.
Absolutely MAGNIFICENT. Would that it could/would be published & copied to the masses in every state of the Union! I can't add anything else, though a part of me wants to. How cogent/how spot-on/how TRUE!

Hate to burst this bubble as so much of it rings true but in all honesty we have this:

In June 2015, a controversial opinion piece entitled “The Black Dilemma” was circulated online along with an attribution to the Baltimore Sun.

Although many online postings of the below-displayed piece in June 2015 claimed that it had been recently published in Baltimore Sun, the newspaper has repeatedly denied this.

The missive has actually been circulating on the internet since at least September 2014, when it was published under the title “Ten Percent Is Not Enough” on the American Renaissance blog, a blog that espouses white supremacist and racist ideologies.

The American Renaissance posting was originally attributed to Anthony Bryan; but that name was stripped from versions shared via internet forums, Craigslist postings, and comments sections of several race-related articles. Several different authorial names have been attached to the piece, including “John S. Mosby” (a Confederate cavalry officer), “Edmund Hughes,” and “Ian Duncan,” but the article didn’t truly go viral until after the Baltimore Sun attribution was tacked on.

A FANTASTIC PIECE! I agree 100% with it.

I was attempting to gather a bit of further research but ran into a brick wall.

I was more or less disregarding most of the naysayers as just "static".

However, I then came across this article from The Baltimore Sun:

baltimoresun.com

So, it seems to be a mystery as to who wrote the article and where it originated!

Wow, we certainly do live in "interesting times"!
