There's a quote I heard long ago, but it's one you can never, ever forget. Robert E. Lee put it best in a letter, and it's this one quote forever keeping me at peace with the world:
"I have always observed that wherever you find the Negro, everything is going down around him, and wherever you find the white man, you see everything around him improving."He wrote these words in June of 1865, almost exactly 150 years ago to this today.
And nothing, absolutely nothing has changed. Not even with trillions of dollars spent via the Great Society and the racial redistribution of wealth courtesy of affirmative action positions (largely through government "make work" positions), the stunning clarity of Lee's observation remains clear.
And no matter if Robert E. Lee's statue comes down in New Orleans or if Nathan Bedford Forrest body is exhumed in Memphis, the fate of both cities is the exact if they remain majority black.
Don't forget blacks in Memphis have erected billboards reminding the population: "Black Lives Matter -- So Let's Quit Killing Each Other."
Also never forget what other billboard went up in Memphis, serving as a warning to those entering the 64 percent black city... The Memphis Police Association put up billboards that simply read, "DANGER: Enter at your own risk; This city does not support public safety."[Billboard scaring pants off Memphis visitors, MyFoxMemphis.com, 5-4-13]
Oh... and don't forget Memphis has the Memphis Gun Down Program because black people can't put the gun down...
Never forget New Orleans has the hilarious NOLA For Life program, specifically designed to entice black people from killing one another.
Statues honoring great men of the past have no bearing on the present inability for individual black people to refrain from collectively endangering civilization in either majority black Memphis or majority black New Orleans; what these statues do serve to say is "we told you what would happen..."
"We tried to warn you...."
Every memory of the Confederate States of America can be removed from the southern states, with roads, schools, buildings and streets renamed; with graves, memorials, flags, and statues torn down or desecrated.
But the simple truth articulated by Robert E. Lee in June of 1865 remains veracious to this day, and it will continue to be a heroic statement of nature's finality regardless of the money spent to wish it away.
Tear it all down and burn it. Smash the monuments into a thousand pieces, grind what remains into dust and then let the winds scatter the memory of what was into the wind.
Exhume every confederate grave and knock the stones marking their sacrifice; throw what remains of their earthly body onto the ground and take a selfie with it.
Tear down every Confederate flag you see and ignite it in a bonfire of the self-righteous and morally superior, setting to a light a conflagration even the Gods will see.
But the truth of Lee's letter stands firm, a resolute statement of reality time can not weather.
The need for NOLA for Life and the Memphis Gun Down Program only exist because each city has a violent, bellicose black population genetically unqualified to participate in the civilization they inherited via white flight.
Lee's words ring truer today than they did in 1865. Let that sink in for a moment...
