How We Got to Black Lives Matter

How We Got to Black Lives Matter

Revisionist history, vote buying politics, bad social policy, and the misguided actions of leftist miscreants and institutions have over time coalesced within the United States to form a unifying con in which blacks in particular, and more recently Hispanics and whites as well, are now used as pawns by the political class to further its own nefarious pursuits. Learn how slavery, and the supposed vestiges thereof, is used by leftists worldwide in a continuous assault on the United States—a smear campaign that is as hollow as it is destructive. How We Got to Black Lives Matter covers the early history of slavery around the world—from the early colonial period, the founding of the U.S., the antebellum period, and the critical events that led to the Civil War. The chains of slavery were finally broken with the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, but the benefits from this groundbreaking legislation never seemed to materialize. Some of the later programs designed to improve the lives of the poor have instead helped lead to the creation of inner-city hell holes in many of America's large urban centers. Over the years, certain anti-poverty laws have had an opposite effect, with the destruction of the black family and the emergence of inter-generational welfare dependency, runaway crime, and other maladies. Using the cudgel of racism and discrimination to repel any constructive ideas for reform has promoted the continuance of the dependent classes to ensure political favor at the voting booth. This book will reveal how we got here—along with some ways to get out.
