I think that if a newcomer to this country wants to understand the race issue between black and white in America that Benton Harbor Michigan is a PERFECT microcosm to start there research from. If one simply traces the history and actions and reactions that manifested over the last 100 years, summarizing to the riots of this weak, they will have the explanation to the race dilemma in America today.
Recent immigrants to America have convoluted the picture of what America has created in Black and white. People who live in the West and South West or other heavily immigrant populated areas do not get the clear picture of the black white racial divide that is America. But the South and Great Lakes area of our nation there represents a non-convoluted snapshot of what the history of racism and bigotry against black people has created. For these areas are composed of just primarily black and white folks and the difference in standards of living are stark reminder of that history.
You have to read this story, because it is TRULY the story of America and our people all summarized and presented in one tiny area of our nation.
The TRUE AMERICA
Truth is always fraught with impediments. Truth agreed with is a blessed duet. Truth confronting beloved vice will sever relationships, perpetrate flight, and uncover murderous rage. - Alexander Solzhenitsyn
