Did giving blacks civil rights threaten the government? Not at all.

The entrenchment of the welfare state and prison system makes blacks easy to control.... and not since the days of Malcolm X and the Black Panthers have blacks threatened the state.
They are harmless sheep just like white people. Let them have their rap music, sports, and thug culture to keep them busy, and as an extra bonus we’ll divert the energies of intelligent white men into hating blacks instead of using that brain power to find out exactly how they’re being screwed over by the state.
We Are Nothing More Than Distracted Sheep

Sheep are often on the move, when shorn, at least the wool is not pulled over their eyes.
Whereas "stolid and stunned we stand, brethren to the ox."
Yes, we are more like immobile fire hydrants, lamp posts, and tree trunks -- allowing the political poodles to get a leg up to more comfortably pee on us.

Paul Krassner opined over 40 years ago that the advent of "feminism" was perfectly timed (and designed) to dilute the rising forces of change unleashed by the '60s, by the simple expedient of setting men and women at odds with each other.

And here we are now.

I've often thought that the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, which ended up transforming the basic ethnic profile of this country, was rammed through Congress as an attempt to undercut the rising Black political and economic power of the Sixties, by flooding urban areas with poor, hardworking, and traditional-minded immigrants from Latin America and Asia.

What Blacks don't realize, and what Whites dare not say without the knee-jerk call of racism is that Black people are worse off than they have ever been. They have less freedom. I'm not gonna touch the "nigger/whitey" or "honky/coon" bullshit. Look at the economics, the demographics describing education, housing, employment. The real issues rather than the skin color clichés.

Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton et al. have built a house of shards on the splintered dreams of African Americans. Forgive their underlings for they know not what they do.

It's easier to accept gov't handouts than to pull their own weight.
This causes a loss of a sense of value.
Hatefulness, uselessness of one's self.
When one has no sense of value in self they also lack a sense of value in others.
This breeds contempt.
Lose the handouts and things quickly revert back to the norm.
This isn't a race thing, it is a handout thing, and it's universal.
Take a look at any race on long term handouts and you'll see the same thing.

The Blacks insinuated here might be stupid but they are cunning. They will not bite the hand that feeds them. They will fall to the hand that slays them. Too bad these meatheads make it bad for normal folks that happen to be Black.

Many of us might say:
We saw each other as the unwilling last of our kind, the live and let live white guy and black guy. I'm good with that.

The problem with Krassner's position is that Feminism, in its modern form, has been steadily advancing since at least the last quarter of the 19th Century. Feminism didn't appear out of nowhere, as a result of someone in the Hidden Establishment flipping a switch.

"Feminism didn't appear out of nowhere, as a result of someone in the Hidden Establishment flipping a switch."

Tread softly Lorne. As a Diagnostic Electrician and a Trained Professional it is my qualified opinion that yes, the flipping of a specific switch could have precipitated Feminism. Granting females the right to vote comes to mind. Allowing them to smoke in public and wear revealing clothing, allowing short hair all come to mind. Mind you, they didn't have switches back then but that's a minor discrepancy in my theory.
