As the Plantation Crumbles They Dance

By Nicholas Contompasis

It’s 2012 in America, but it’s more like the post-Civil War era, better known as Reconstruction, which was between 1865 and 1877. Reconstruction, yea right! It was more like Destruction when Northerners moved into the badly beaten Southern states and bought up the deteriorating plantations and all the land that went with it for a song. It seems we have the same thing going on in America today with the Obama Administration doing next to nothing to save one in four homeowners from foreclosure and uncertainty. He is doing next to nothing to employee the millions still unemployed after the longest recession in America history, a recession that may soon be classified as a depression. While weeds grow around millions of these deteriorating homes, homes once owned by proud families and families still living in them, but in banking hell, they slowly deteriorate as did the once proud plantations of the South. Is this President attempting to wipe out the white man’s dominance and image just as the Carpetbaggers from the North did to the Southern way of life? This analogy is perfect in a reversal of fortunes sort of way, with a now black President orchestrating the demise of the white middle class in America. After closer analysis, this could be described as a purely racist act by the President of the United States.
