Your world view is so wrong, I'll have to start pretty far back.

1. Chicago, Gary, Detroit, Cleveland, Philadelphia and most other Northern cities were almost entirely white when slavery was abolished. Blacks emigrated to the North (which freed them), for the opportunities and freedom. If you doubt that there is opportunity, just look at Oprah Winfrey. She kicked Phil Donahue's butt and became a billionaire here in Chicago.

2. White people in these cities were driven out of their lower middle class neighborhoods by violent, racist blacks. My grandparents were South Side Irish and their neighborhood, which took decades to build (almost all by white people of course), was destroyed in a few years by HUD and racist black leaders. Chicago once prided itself as a city of neighborhoods, but those white ethnic neighborhoods have been eliminated by HUD "integration". The "integration" drove out whites and left 98% black, high-crime ghettos. There are still beautiful homes and churches in those neighborhoods ... built by whites and now occupied by white-hating blacks like Louis Farrakhan and Jeremiah Wright.

3. After MLK was assassinated in Tennessee, blacks went on a rampage in Northern and Western cities. It became acceptable for blacks to be racist and violent against any white person, regardless of their background. Whites were driven out of the cities into suburbia, and now HUD is chasing them out of suburbia. My family and many other Irish families built their city neighborhood with blood, sweat, and tears, but it was taken from them in the violent black riots. My grandmother was mugged and injured, and my grandfather was kidnapped. The same kind of thing happened in Italian, Greek, Russian, Polish, Lithuanian, German, Jewish, Swedish, British, and other white ethnic neighborhoods. Chicago used to be well over 95% white. Now Whites are the smallest racial group in Chicago, after Blacks and Hispanics. The number of Whites continues to fall, and Chicago is fast becoming like Detroit or Gary.

My parents were driven out of the Cabrini Green area. My wife's parents were driven out of the far south side. Now we're under siege in the far southern suburbs.

Zinn


  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

Bono


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

The Reverend Al Sharpton


  • Ray wasn't singing about what he knew, 'cause Ray had been blind since he was a child. He hadn't seen many purple mountains. He hadn't seen many fruited plains. He was singing about what he believed to be.

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

Marx


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
