Pretty solid post, good points. But I don't think a flat out revolution would take place in the absence of black people here. Rather, political forces would impose greater "socialization" on the economy, to where our economy would end up more like Germany's or France's. Higher taxes, but free health care, free education for all, less disparity between rich & poor.
You may be right NOW. But what if there had NEVER been black folks here? Revolutions were raging around the world in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
