few businesses employed blacks in a management position, as they knew their white staff wouldn't stick to their direction. It was actually the same time that smokers weren't treated as social pariah ; pro athletics made less than the average employee and the only possible way to send mail was in an envelope. Technology has made an enormous impact in our social fabric. Blacks are not the scorn of White America.
And while the Civil Rights amendments have an application to all races, colours, and ethnic races, let's admit it, it is essentially applied to the African-American. They formed close ties with their communities, and acquired their way into conventional America. Thru history, no races have been persecuted to the same levels as the Jews. Laws, thru history, were made to keep them out of public office, and some times legit business, yet still they prosper. In revering Black America we celebrate the rebirth of the state's most maligned ethnic group. We celebrate the present by expounding on our accomplishments and reliving great moments from past times. B We celebrate the rebellions of Nat Turner and Denmark Vesey in their ill-fated attempt at liberty. We celebrate the Civil, Political and equality so long denied and withheld. We celebrate the political activism of Jesse Jackson, Fannie Lou Hamer and the suave Adam Clayton Powell, eloquent strategists demanding the granting of voting rights to each adult, old and young. We celebrate the infantrymen on the battleground. Person in a straight jacket. For some reason, since the wholesale pillaging of Africa, African-Americans cannot appear to imitate other ethnic communities from that viewpoint. They continue to follow the African model of exploitation so a few can maintain a hold over the many. I think this goes against the tradition of Affirmative Action. That being mentioned if there were no more executive funded welfare-type programs, those communities would be made to band together to form a better environment for all their races.
