If you’re a snowflake, you might want to go elsewhere. Ready? Here goes: The best thing that ever happened to Black Americans today was … slavery.
As objectionable as slavery is, it’s by far the best thing that ever happened to 21st Century Black Americans. Don’t believe me?
Try a little thought exercise: Ask any black person whether, if he could, he would wave a magic wand and eliminate slavery from American history.
Think about it. You’d be offering to that person the hypothetical ability to eliminate from history the suffering of millions of people who looked like him. Who wouldn’t respond — immediately — “Of course I would!”
Well. Then, he might have second thoughts.
First: If he were able to eliminate slavery from American history, and did it, he might wink himself out of existence. After all, many Black Americans are descendants of slaves who encountered each other here in America.
Second: on the offchance that he might still existed, it would likely be somewhere in Africa. And he’d be considering a whole raft of other problems that might not be quite as easy as what he has to put up with here.
Despite all the bold talk of the Race Grievance Industry in America today, and their incoherent whining about racism, and social justice, and white supremacy, I’m betting that there’s not one single, solitary black American who would, if he truly could, eliminate his own ancestors’ subjugation in America.
