The present is the creation of the past. One cannot explain the condition, the black condition, without using the past and without going deep into the past.

The economic history of this nation was not created in the 3 years Obama has been president. If that were the case then only he would be to blame, but then only...

Yeah, well .... that's all well and good .... but the fact that ALEC is returning its focus to "economic interests" is not a good thing, either!! That simply means that they will be funneling even MORE money into buying and selling politicians, corrupting the legislative process, and bribing their way into even harsher economic policies that financially harm the rest of us.
