Black Mecca Down

Paul Kersey, SBPDL, December 20, 2012

Are blacks in America immune from criticism? Are they never responsible for their own failures?

And most importantly, is black rule the end for an American city? Paul Kersey of SBPDL gives an emphatic “yes” to all three in Black Mecca Down—a shocking, controversial, and uproarious account of the fall of Atlanta.

Once dubbed “The City Too Busy to Hate,” Atlanta was supposed to be the model city for the New South, a thriving metropolis that would show how the old Confederacy had moved beyond race and joined the global economy. Instead, Atlanta became a black dystopia dominated by corruption, incompetence, and crime.

Starting with Maynard Jackson, Atlanta’s first black mayor, the greatest city in the South followed the pattern of Detroit, with basic institutions collapsing even as the cries of “racism” increased. The sequel to the bombshell Escape from Detroit is Kersey at his best, showing the tragic aftermath of the Civil Rights Movement in the decline of a once great city. You’ll find the original reporting, remarkable anecdotes, and trademark wit that have made the author and his site a sensation.
