The chances and the giving are probably coming to an end: what next?
Dave Chappelle said on Saturday Night Live last night that he was willing to give Donald Trump a chance if Trump would give the disenfranchised a chance. That's well and good, and better than many non-Trump supporters have been saying, but how many more chances do the Blacks and disenfranchised want?
As Pat Buchanan wrote (who was Trump before Trump) "Untold trillions have been spent since the ’60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream."
But the chances and the giving are probably now coming to an end since there is no money left to give. Does this mean more Black rebellion as we are now seeing in the streets against Trump, or even revolution? There are always those who want to ride these revolutions to power.
But the conservative transformation---not revolution---which I see coming, eventually, will bring about an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, where different ethnic groups can conduct themselves the way they want to in their own states within our Democratic Republic, perhaps with only a few amendments to the constitutional separation of powers and states. But we will need to retain federalism and balance the states together because we need the geopolitical heft of a large nation to defend ourselves in the world.
That is the best chance all of us will have. Interesting that Luis Farrakhan of the Black racialist Nation of Islam leans in this direction.
