The Black Jack Revolt

13 07 2012

St. Louis History

I just remembered something.

Guess who wanted the Justice Department to have an even more muscular response than it did against the white people of the North St. Louis County suburb of Black Jack (the revolt mentioned in passing in The Pruitt-Igoe Myth) who were trying to keep their suburb from becoming an African colony.

Search this document for “blackjack” (one word).

Black Jack did eventually become literally true,  unfortunately.

Disturbing.

The urban people can’t get to the better paying jobs so we must destroy where the better jobs are. These people can’t get to the better paying jobs because they don’t have the aptitude to manage personal finances.

It may be too late to save this country.
