BLACK SCHOOLS COULD HAVE BEEN EQUAL | 2002-12-21
Before 1954, on average black teachers in North Carolina were already paid more than white teachers. This was to avoid integration.
Governor Byrnes of South Carolina introduced the state's sales tax to provide equal funding to black schools. If blacks had been willing to trade integration for funding they could have had all the money they wanted for their schools.
For integration, blacks threw away their opportunity for huge funding for their schools. No one questioned the fact that the function of blacks was to act as a sledgehammer to break up white society.
So for liberals to say that they wanted busing just to get funding for black schools was nonsense. Yet by then,, no conservative would dare point this out.
But the bottom line on integration was the same as the bottom line on the War to Keep the South. White Southerners wanted to be left alone.
If we stick to that goal, we can win.
