Entitlement Culture

Progressivism's appeal to our baser instincts by Erik Rush

A key dynamic I addressed in my book "Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal - America's Racial Obsession," was the process by which progressives incrementally initiated black Americans into the entitlement culture, dependency and dysfunction. This is most poignantly illustrated by the plight of poor, inner-city blacks. During the civil-rights-movement era, black Americans were somewhat vulnerable to these machinations, but the process still took nearly 50 years.

Now, these millions are coming to the realization that black Americans were merely a small-scale experiment conducted by the radical Left – and a very successful one. With the ascension of Barack Obama to the presidency, the word was given that it was time to enlarge that experiment, or, rather, to apply the now-proven theory to the general populace on a larger scale than ever before.
