City Of Charleston Needs To Just STOP

Published

on

A South Carolina city, once a crucial slave trading port, approved a symbolic resolution on Tuesday denouncing slavery, with the promise of change.

Charleston City Council voted to apologize for the city’s role it played in the slave trade and proposed an office of racial reconciliation.

The majority-white 12 member council voted in a city hall that is located less than a mile from the old wharf, where almost half of all the slaves brought to the United States first stepped foot on American soil.

Two members of the council said they would not vote for the resolution.

Councilman Perry Waring cited a need to focus on economic development as the basis for his opposition. Fellow councilman Harry Joseph Griffin said passing the resolution would have implications, and added that the city needed to address other issues facing the city.

The vote coincided with “Juneteenth,” a celebration of the end of slavery, and came just two days after the third anniversary of a racist attack by a white man who killed nine black members of a Charleston church.

    Ho hum; here we have another meaningless exercise in obeisance by people who never owned slaves to people who never were slaves.

    It’s a “con.” It is even worse in Germany what with the holocaust, and all the rest.
    “Judge not lest ye be so judged.” It is good advice, whether one is a believer or not. There have been many “holocausts” over the years, and there’s one right now in Gaza, and the surrounding Palestinian homeland territories. So, our country was one of many which used slave labor in the 17th to 19th centuries. Nothing can legitimize that travesty. HOWEVER – let’s compare the living conditions of the average black in the US today with that of the average black in Africa today. Which is better off – better educated – more advanced and capable – has more opportunity? Perhaps the wrong side is getting the backsheesh. NO! They do it because they can! Because the soft brained liberal minds have been brainwashed to believe that everything is the fault of mankind in some manner. So, we fall for every scam-artist and huckster who sees the easy buck. It’s just as true in this case as it is in “Climate Change” – Oh no – – – We humans must stop breathing or our carbon dioxide will melt the glaciers and the polar bears will grow brown coats, come and eat us – oh no! Shakespeare’s Puck was right – “What fools these mortals be!”
