Robert Parkinson asks... the Times this morning, "Did a Fear of Slave Revolts Drive American Independence?"

The piece brings up something I've been thinking about for some time now: Isn't an imminent "slave rebellion" nearly always a source of fear in the white community?

Take gun control, for example. I maintain that the real reason that people (white people, to be exact) want guns is to be prepared for that "slave rebellion" that's always just around the corner. Or, to update it, to protect themselves against rioting blacks (or at least the one that's bound and determined to break into their house and either kill them or rape their wives and daughters).

(As for that last point, ask yourself: If that Stanford rapist had been black do you really think he would have gotten such a light sentence?)

I'm a big believer that fear of blacks motivates much of what white people do on a regular basis. (Like moving to the suburbs.) So the premise of that piece in the Times doesn't surprise me too much.

The "ammosexuals" need 30 round clips for their assault rifles because what if more than 7 dark skinned rioters are trying to get into their house to steal their $150 7 year old TV? Trump's America puts aside all the "political correctness" ( not using racial slurs, not obviously punching down ) and lets white people pretend that they are superior for a while longer as highly educated folks from India do their jobs better for less. We could band together - labor unions - National Healthcare - Free College Educations - but that would mean giving benefits to BROWN people - and that is anathema. How can I declare Independence white Red America ( which is White )??
