In reading that, no real claim was made after stating the already well known fact of poverty in former manufacturing hubs of the North. There was, however, an implication made, but not a specific argument. I notice that is always a precursor for conversational ratholes that one repeatedly attempts to drag people into.

Black ideology had no causal effect on the migration of manufacturing from the North to the South. IRB's (industrial revenue bonds) became the weapon of choice for southern states to lure manufacturing companies from the high-wage northern states. The South already had cheap labor, with IRBs they also offered huge government subsidies (public monies) for private corporations at taxpayers expense. This was a major issue between the south & the north beginning in earnest in the 1950s, and legislation to mitigate the damage they caused to nothern cities was being legislated as late as 1986.

The decimation of the economies of northern cities of predominately Black folks has no nexus to the ideology of the Black masses. To claim otherwise is more than mendacious, it is delusional and indicative of one who has but a tenuous grasp of the issue.
