4/24/1901, Georgia Governor Hostile to Visit From Wealthy New Yorkers Looking into Negro Education

How long does it take to build a smooth-running democracy? For the United States it took about two centuries. The Declaration of Independence and The U.S. Constitution preceded the Civil War, Reconstruction, Jim Crow Laws, and segregation. The above-linked article about Georgia from 1901 illustrates the difficulties in building democracies. Democracies don't just blossom. Look at the Middle East for example. ... Accusing America's founding fathers of being evil racists would be politically misleading and diversionary. Where did racism come from? Racism is due to evolution. Humans evolved from wild pack animals. Racism is an instinctive trait that can only be gradually and incrementally attenuated.
