“These people don’t see America changing. These people see America being destroyed,” warned Johnson, “…so the browning of America for them is the disappearance of America, and when you see it like that, they are capable of doing almost anything. This is only the beginning of their hysteria, of their desperation, of their danger. I hate to sound like a prophet of doom, but we’ve got a problem.”
Dr. Matthew V. Johnson, “Just Call It Treason”, Soul AFIRE, October 3, 2013
The government shutdown is properly viewed as an act of treason, said Dr. Matthew V. Johnson last night on Soul AFIRE. He drew a parallel with a strike conducted by the White workers of the Philadelphia Transportation Company, in 1944, at the height of WWII, who were angry that Blacks were being called in to work the trolleys while the White workers were recruited into higher paying and more sensitive wartime positions. Philadelphia, then the country’s third largest war production center, was shutdown to prevent Blacks from getting these jobs in a collusion among the Republicans, the management of the transportation company, and the White workers.
