If you've read Black Mecca Down: The Collapse of the City too Busy to Hate, you'll know it's been predicted Atlanta is the city/region where The Happening occurs (if you haven't read it, get it here).
Well, on the Fourth of July, blacks marched atop Stone Mountain in Georgia - with Black Panthers carrying AK-47s and AR-15s - to demand the sandblasting of the Lee, Jackson and Davis Confederate carving.
STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. -- Stone Mountain’s Confederate carving became an issue in the governor’s race on July 4, with the Atlanta NAACP chapter organizing a rally to call for the carving’s removal.
The rally was set to begin around 7 am on Independence Day, even though Stone Mountain Park didn't officially open to visitors until 10:30 am.
The group snapped a photo when they made it to the top of the mountain.
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has called for the carving’s removal, and on Tuesday, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle – who faces Secretary of State Brian Kemp in the July 24 GOP runoff – weighed in.
“When I’m governor, we will preserve Stone Mountain as the monument and cultural attraction it was intended to be, one that brings in visitors from around the world,” he said. “I will work on behalf of all Georgians, but I will also stand up to the extremists who think we have to sandblast the past to move into the future.
“The Democratic nominee has called for removing the carving from Stone Mountain, and I’m the only Republican in this race who can stop her.”
In a Twitter post, Kemp said, "I will protect Stone Mountain - and the carvings on it - because we should learn from the past - not attempt to re-write it." Abrams announced her support for removal of the carving in the immediate August 2017 aftermath of the Charlottesville, Va., riots that killed one person and injured dozens of others.
Why were Black Panthers allowed to climb Stone Mountain carrying semi-assault weapons?
The image from the rally above, though just over a score of blacks showed up, demonstrates the reality of black privilege in Georgia.
They are coming for the Confederate carving on Stone Mountain and they are carrying semi-assault weapons.
But it will never, ever stop with just Confederate monuments. They want to erase every last drop of white America's history.
