If you really believe that, all I can say is that you are a historically illiterate moron.
1.) First, Atlanta's black crime problem is hardly unique. Blacks are just as disproportionately overrepresented among violent criminals in Philadelphia, Baltimore, Oakland, Detroit, New York City, Chicago, Cleveland, Newark, and so on where Jim Crow never existed.
2.) Second, the same problem can be found abroad in cities like Toronto, Brussels, Paris, Amsterdam and London. Generally speaking, wherever blacks reside among a European population, they are overrepresented among violent criminals.
3.) Third, blacks have more educational opportunities in the American South than in either Africa or the Caribbean where blacks are predominant, especially in countries where the European footprint was the lightest such as Ethiopia or Liberia.
4.) Finally, Haiti is the result of two centuries of black freedom, and proof of the type of society that blacks create in a state of freedom.
From April 2011 until April 2012, every single person arrested for homicide in Atlanta was black. The same race of people were responsible for 95 percent of rape, 94 percent of robbery, 84 percent of aggravated assault, and 93 percent of burglary in Atlanta.
It is not old Confederate monuments that bring Atlanta down. It is the black population that lives in the city today, which mismanages its finances, and which is exclusively responsible for making the city unsafe. That's why the Atlanta Braves are fleeing to Cobb County.
The same people who want to remove the Tom Watson statue also want to blow up the Confederate Memorial on Stone Mountain. They are no different than the Taliban.
