"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan

Next week, black Americans in Charlottesville won't see those statues anymore. They will continue to see lousy public schools, walk in dangerous streets, and hear about the next school name that must go. In reality, their lives won't be improved much until the political class talks about black-on-black crime and fatherlessness at home.
