Random Fact: from 1920 to 1960, 67% of African Americans owned businesses, owned land, owned banks, and started their own political parties in this country. It all disappeared when in the 60’s the NAACP demanded from the all white government of America to be integrated within the white culture of America. The prominent and prosperous yet segregated Black America that came to be from the 20’s to the 60’s dissolved overnight with white integration. Resulting in less than 4% of African American ownership in white America.
"I fear I have integrated my people into a burning house"- Martin Luther King.
Incredibly simplistic to blame that decline on integration.
