Dr Martin Luther Burke

Mr Edmund Burke's general comment on the unintended outcomes of reforming schemes

...very plausible schemes, with very pleasing commencements, have often shameful and lamentable conclusions.

could have been his remarks on the civil rights movement and its wake.

I'm not sure the civil rights movement was fated for this result from the get-go. I blame the interfering actions of liberals for the way things have turned out. Carry the logic of "good intentions" to its logical conclusion, and you could say that the creation of Man was bad, because look how that turned out. And God KNEW what would happen, to boot!

If things get better, if the black community gets it's head screwed right, if white people start demanding that blacks take responsibility for their personal failings and accept the order of things, and if the execrable race merchants like Jackson are cast down once and for all, I think we will begin making progress. But I fear things are going to get ugly before they get better, and then we'll get to see the content of people's character, one way or another. And I don't think the sides will be all black or all white, either.
