Yes, but Can They Have Separate Water Fountains?

According to The Detroit Free Press, the Detroit city council has decided that black businesses will be segragated into what will be known as "African Town." It gets better...

African Town will be by blacks, for blacks but it will use money raised from the city's taxes, which we know are levied on a truly color-blind basis. It gets better...

The reason for doing so is because, to quote the narrative "The [$112,000] report also complains that immigrants from Mexico, Asia and the Middle East are stealing resources, jobs and other opportunities from blacks ."

The American Civil War, the striking down of Jim Crowe laws, the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 14th Amendment to the Consititution all took a beating because one idiot says blacks can't hack it on their own because they're suffering at the hands of people who are to them a minority.

The author of the report says, "There are special problems unique to black folks, and the city needs to address their problems." Their only problem is idiots like this who denegrate self-reliance beneath an avalanche of victimization. I can think of nothing more racist than to say blacks, or anybody else, cannot make it on their own. Whatever happened to the legacies of Frederick Douglas, Nat Turner, George Washington Carver and other such great Americans? These folks had fewer opportunities but they enjoyed greater success. This man is a disgrace and Detroit should ask for a refund of its $112,000.
