      Are you implying that white people didn't explicitly harass black people and destroy black communities using the force of law, imported drugs that they then criminalized to use as a pretext to arrest and control them?

      Because there's a fucking mountain of evidence that says otherwise in several presidential libraries.

    never went anywhere. That's really the thing. Black people stayed working class while others pulled ahead. Black people were in the sub-working class at the time when a working class job afforded an opportunity to climb the ladder, but as the white working class advanced and agreed to let negroes have the old shit jobs, they drove up prices for everything while wages stagnated. So that the opportunity was kinda yanked out under them as soon as they finally had a foot in the door

    kinda shitty story. It also makes me think a bit of the South and manufacturing industry. When the national economy moves on to bigger and better things, industry throws the scraps to the underclass, largely stripped of the benefits it provided the last batch of upwardly-mobile fortunates.

    Early automation in the 1950's eliminated a lot of low-level factory jobs in American cities. Big northern cities like Detroit had a lot of unskilled agrarian southern blacks moving up from places like Mississippi but no more jobs for them to fill, which led to disaster.

      Replacement of human labor has started when people began to use mules instead of their wives for plowing the fields, accelerated tremendously with the invention of a steam engine and has never reduced the number of "jobs".
      Billion of low-skilled Chinamen are churning out processors and smartphones on their production lines.

      The welfare state leftist morons created structural unemployment in the first place and it disproportionally affected blacks as being the weakest chain in the pecking order.
      Minimum wage laws were initially specifically intended to _forbid_ low earners (that is blacks) from even working.

                they actually did. White southenrers were a big part of the great migration from the South. on top of that they were the ones that often screwed over Blacks in Detroit by importing their beliefs and work culture into the workplaces they entered.

                They were. That's why they moved north hand west as poverty was growing in the South. yYou think Blacks only had it bad in the south? Many states were a total mess in regards to poverty with education work being limited as fuck due to the positron and politics of the state in question.

                No one really talks about it because the idea of whites moving in large numbers for jobs isn't particularly new or strange in US history versus Blacks leaving their homelands to venture west/north.

                yeah okay. lets read his book which is listed as the source, shall we?
                >The Preface is him complaining about George Bush winning in 2004 because of those damned white southern republicans
                Not a great start

                >introduction is him complaining about white people
                really not looking good, I'm just going to search for where he got his numbers...

                It appears he used IPUMS which is a dataset of 1% of census results to create an "average"
                >Whites consistently returned at much higher rates than African Americans. In most
                intervals, whites were three times as likely to return.
                >Throughout the postwar period, there was rapid turnover in the white migrant population. In the late 1950s, for every ten whites leaving the South, five returned. After 1965,
                the turnover exceeded 75%
                So it seems by the 1960's 50% of the whites that left the south were returning home, in the 1930's it was 30%. Only 20% of blacks returned to the South in the 60's and 20% again in the 30's. By 1975 100% of whites that left the south were replaced by southerners returning to the south, with 75% of the amount of migrants blacks making the journey home in the same time.

                Going on to read his other data tables, black migrants vastly outnumbered whites in the Northeast, including Pennsylvania.

                It seems he counted whites moving into the West as "northern" migrants. Indiana and Ohio were the only states in the midwest where white migration outnumbered blacks by a large margin. The rest of the whites all went west.

                Some nog said that blacks weren't crowding into cities as much as white people because some white hating homosexual from Berkeley said so and I proved him wrong. Millions of blacks crowded into the northeast and midwest cities while most of the white people went out west after the civil war.

                not to mention the maps on this page here https://depts.washington.edu/moving1/map_diaspora.shtml

                show that most states had White southerns make up the majority of southerners and their number of migrants being larger. Only 2 states had blacks be a bit more in number

                The data on those charts doesn't include how many whites returned south in their lifetime. The author of the source that those numbers come from admits that whites were returning south 100-200% more often than black people. So even if whites were moving north in equal numbers to blacks, large numbers of them were also returning home, far dwarfing the populations of blacks returning home. The other problem is he pretends like states like California are "the north". His "20 million southerners moved to the north" claim isn't even supported by his own data, the totals don't even reach 10 million just by scanning the totals. The graphs also pretend like border states like Kentucky, West Virginia, Washington DC, Delaware and Maryland were "southern states". This is schizo tier narrative pushing.

                Did you even look at the other parts at all considerations only New york state had a black majority in regards to southern migration? you didn't prove anything wrong at all. Espcially since you seem to forget the sheer power that certain workers had over coercing their employers from not hiring certain groups lol.

        Not really. blacks (and/or Hispanics) were always last to hire first fired. Couple that with workpalce racism or whites pressuring/attacking employers that hire those groups and you have a recipe for limited work opportunities. Also by the time welfare was a thing many blue collar/manufacturing jobs moved away from urban areas or the country entirely as the country shifted to service.

    The quote that the blackoid dropped that said southern whites are what ruined northern cities and outnumbered blacks was written by a white hating homosexual from Berkeley that purposefully misrepresented data and put all his number work at the end of a 400 page book. Probably because anybody reading his book are just going to take hi mat his word because they're just looking for a reason to hate white people
