The media keeps the focus on blacks whom leftists have taught to hate. In America, though, there are probably more blacks who don’t hate. Here are 3 of them. I went to the gun store again today, which is always a pleasant way to pass time. (By the way, thanks to all of you for your helpful ideas about which guns to buy.) Having handled about a dozen semi-automatics and test-fired the top three candidates, I think I’m going to get a Ruger because it fits my hands.
Beatty’s right that this switch story is a lie, but I would frame it a bit differently. For the most part, Northeastern (and West Coast) Americans were every bit as prejudiced as Southerners. However, they were different in two ways from the South: They didn’t believe in slavery and they didn’t have blacks living amongst them, as was the case in the South. Regarding that second point, Northerners simply consigned blacks to ghettos.
