In 1868, the 14th Amendment to the Constitution gave blacks equal protection under the law. In 1870, the 15th Amendment granted blacks the right to vote.  President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 8802 on June 25, 1941. It opened national defense jobs and other government jobs to all Americans regardless of race, creed, color or national origin. But what was promised, equality, .. has not happened. Perhaps even worse, according to many people it failed and will never happen because…. Well, there are far too many reasons given to list them here but the gross unfairness to people who never discriminated, who never ever were unfair caused a lot of resentment that’s been welling up on both sides of the black-white spectrum.

A growing body of literature is being published that is putting the civil rights issue under increased scrutiny. A great body of information is quietly being covered up lest it stir up even more race based resentment based on things like the throwing a child over a third floor railing at the Mall of America. An anonymous website wrote that “Given the increasing number of attacks like this, it won’t be long before the vast majority of Americans conclude that the Civil Rights Movement was the most evil and deleterious attack on the nation since the 1965 Naturalization Act. And yes, this is yet another example of an unprovoked black-on-white attempted murder. It doesn’t matter if “you don’t see color,” not that anyone takes your sanctimonious pretense seriously. The point is, those who hate you do.” Isn’t it time to address the hate instead of the color? There’s no need to try to undue what’s been done, as if that were even possible but the future seems to be stuck when it comes to civil rights but not on civil wrongs.
