The Current and Historical State of Race Relations in the United States Part 1

Despite the promises from the current President of the United States and his supporters that he represents the hope of a post racial era for our country, race relations appear to be as strained as they have been since the Civil Rights or "Civil War" (War for Southern Independence) periods.  Apparently, the mulatto occupying the White House has emboldened blacks to demand "their fair share" of entitlements and respect despite a continuing trend of higher crime and poor scholastic and professional achievement in the black community.  The Administration and Justice Department seem to simply harp on spreading the wealth and soaking the rich to "pay their fair share" instead of condemning the increasingly radical violent activities spreading across the country which is deepening the divide between the blacks and other ethnicities.  Almost 50% of Americans now have their hand out to receive some welfare or entitlement while a smaller fraction of the country provide jobs and pay into these social engineering programs which have proven to be a failure.  Is the slavery of yesteryear worse than the slavery on the federal dole for which over 37% of blacks are recipients.  33% of all welfare goes to blacks, the population of which comprises only 12% of the general population.  Despite the billions of dollars invested in social engineering projects and welfare meant to be a temporary assistance, a culture of underachievement, entitlement mentality and, dependence has evolved.  Was integration the solution?  Were more food stamps and ongoing Social Security for able bodied single mothers continuing to have children out of wedlock a solution?  A current radio advertisement pleading for continued full funding for Medicare states that over 50% of babies born in Alabama are "paid for by Medicaid".  That is appalling.  And now we have a mainstream media which seems to fan the flames of racial tension provocatively, skewing the facts of events to portray any white as the default instigator and culprit.  We have seen the injustice, the bias and blatantly unprofessional journalism regarding the Zimmerman/"Travon" Martin case and the result - an illegal bounty on Zimmerman's head by the New Black Panthers and seventeen (and counting) assaults on whites across the country by black gangs in the name of "Travon". And the mulatto President and Attorney General sit back moot except to say that Travon might look like what their son might have hypothetically.  Another irresponsible lack of leadership perhaps trumped only by Obama's "stupid Cambridge police" proclamation in a hasty, uninformed editorial regarding the arrest of a black professor on suspected breaking and entering charges.  What did the "Great Emancipator" (Lincoln) have to say about race relations?  Besides representing slave owners as a lawyer and marrying into one of the prominent slave holding families of Kentucky, Lincoln was quoted as saying, "I should not know what to do, as to the existing institution [of slavery]. My first impulse would be to free all the slaves, and send them to Liberia, to their own native land."  Free them but relocate them elsewhere, outside the United States. Asked whether freed blacks should be made "politically and socially our equals?" "My own feelings will not admit of this."  Equality? Lincoln thought not.  Affirmative action reeks of inequality and reverse discrimination - a preferential skin color bias... to be continued...
