If You Want To Change History Do It Right

I saw an article on Breitbart today headlined “Ice Cube: Undoing White Privilege Means Reimagining What America Should Have Been from the Beginning”. I thought why did he stop at the beginning of America, why didn’t he go back to the beginning of the slave trade? If you want to rewrite history make it good. By going back far enough to not have slaves in the first place we wouldn’t be having these protests by Black Lives Matter, and ANTIFA. The root cause was not the founding of America but the establishment of the slave trade.

Ice Cube believes by rethinking America the way he would like it to be that everything would be different and lovey-dovey. The way I propose, it would be lovey and America would honestly be founded on white privilege because blacks would have remained in Africa, and America would have been established without prejudice or segregation.

He is stuck in his revisionist history because he wants America to be founded on equal blacks and whites. He truly believes that abolishing slavery at the very beginning would have given blacks equal opportunity. What he fails to realize is the cultural and educational differences between seventeenth century blacks and whites was huge. How long would it have taken the black civilization to bridge that gap?

Given that if slavery was abolished in 1776 and if there was no prejudice, or segregation perhaps this would be a different world. What I don’t understand is why we keep trying to change history? Other than giving us a some nice fiction to read what betterment does it serve? It does serve to give guys like Ice Cube something to write about to stay in the news and keep his fan base going.

We are stuck with what we have and dreaming up scenarios about how things could have been won’t solve anything. What we need to be visioning are some viable solutions to our problems and what America will look like when we accomplish those goals.

  1. With you on this. History has happened. Cannot be changed. Wishful thinking will not take us into an alternate reality. I find it silly that some people/ nations want some other people/ nations to apologise for the actions of their forefathers. Do you hang someone for a crime committed by their parent or child?

  2. Great points, Grumpa. If we hadn’t torn Africans from their ancestral homes, then we would be hating Irish, Chinese, and a whole slew of other groups. Now I have to ponder how that would have turned out…
