Freedom Failed: The Reality of Quitman County (GA)

Freedom Failed: The Reality of Quitman County (GA)

Georgia

“The result of many years of experience, observation, and reflection, has also established in my mind the conviction that the subjection of the negro to the white race is in conformity with the designs of Providence, that slavery is the natural, and, of course, the best condition of the negro, and that this social institution, so far from being an evil, moral, social, or political, is beneficial to both races, and has been, and is now, a chief element of the wealth, prosperity, and power of these United States.”
– Gov. John A. Quitman of Mississippi

Inspired by Charles Darwin’s voyages on the H.M.S. Beagle, I have continued my investigation of the negro in “free society” by touring Georgetown in Quitman County (GA), which is adjacent to Randolph County (GA) and shares a border with Alabama on the Chattahoochee River.

It has been 147 years since the abolition of slavery in West Central Georgia and 47 years since the Voting Rights Act removed the last vestiges of Jim Crow in Quitman County. Here the negro now enjoys unfettered freedom. Here the negro has been elevated to equality with Whites. The law has been reformed to his advantage by outlawing all the formal barriers of prejudice that are thought to hold back his advancement.

In compliance with Brown vs. Board of Education (1954) and the federal court order mandating desegregation of Georgia public schools (1970), the public schools of Quitman County (GA) were integrated. Under the Voting Rights Act, the negro has been given the right to vote, which resulted in Barack Hussein Obama carrying Quitman County (GA) with 53.6 percent of the vote in the 2008 presidential election.

According to the 2010 census, there are 2,513 people in Quitman County (GA). African-Americans are 47.9 percent of the population. There are about 973 people in Georgetown which is the county seat and the only incorporated city in Quitman County (GA). 60 percent of the people who live in Georgetown are African-American.

It is quite clear from touring Quitman County (GA) and Randolph County (GA) that the indigenous Southern institutions like slavery and segregation have been successfully eliminated. American civilization in West Central Georgia has been reconstructed on the basis of Northern ideas and principles like abolition and integration.

We can verify through observation the existence of a free market economy, a welfare state, integrated public education, the integration of public accommodations, black voting rights, and the like. This is the way that the Northerners who supported the Civil Rights Movement thought Quitman County (GA) ought to be. And thanks to the United States Congress, MLK’s Dream has come true in this area.

So what is the result? How did these ideas and policies work out in practice? These are questions which the Mainstream Media will never investigate for ideological reasons.

You can watch “Eyes on the Prize” or “Soundtrack for a Revolution” or “Freedom Riders” on the BRA Experience on PBS without any followup on the institutionalization of the Civil Rights Movement over the course of 47 years. As is often the case with leftwing utopian experiments, the revolution is more titillating than the bleak world that is created in their aftermath.

In my tour of Quitman County (GA) (see photo gallery), I counted and observed 7 gas stations, 1 Dollar General, 1 scrap metal business, 1 liquor store, 1 title pawn store, 2 cash advance stores, numerous abandoned homes, several destroyed homes, several decaying neighborhoods, and undeveloped lakefront property. I was able to confirm though that the main drag in town has been renamed “Martin Luther King, Jr. Bypass.”

Two oddities stood out in Quitman County (GA):

(1) How can such a small county and even smaller town sustain no less than 7 gas stations? The most plausible explanation seems to be that African-Americans from Alabama are crossing Lake Walter F. George to play the Georgia Lottery.

(2) How come there are no fine Antebellum homes on par with those in neighboring Randolph County? It turns out that Georgetown was burnt to the ground by a fire in 1903.

The Iron Law of Race Relations was sufficient to explain everything else that I observed: specifically, the peculiar nature of the Black Undertow economy, the average per capita income of $13,642, the 31.6 percent poverty rate, the chronic underdevelopment of such a scenic lakefront location, and the blighted neighborhoods which are decaying as a result of the Africanization process which drives down property values and pushes out industrious and responsible homeowners.

In 2009, 35 percent of African-Americans in Quitman County (GA) were living off the EBT card. This is almost identical to Randolph County (GA) where 33 percent of African-Americans were on the EBT card. Although we have no precise figures to go by, we can make an educated guess that at least 50 percent of African-Americans in these two counties are now under the EBT card which would be consistent with the explosion of food stamp usage under the Obama administration.

Quitman County High School has a black principal. 75 percent of students are African-American and 25 percent are White. There are four blacks on the Quitman County Board of Education. The Quitman County Commission appears to be predominantly black from Google image searches. Georgetown doesn’t have a mayor.

In Quitman County High School, 26 percent of African-Americans and 10 percent of Whites failed 9th Grade Literature, 18 percent of African-Americans and 7 percent of Whites failed American literature, 54 percent of African-Americans and 27 percent of Whites failed Mathematics I, 59 percent of African-Americans and 30 percent of Whites failed Mathematics II, 46 percent of African-Americans and 18 percent of Whites failed Biology, 49 percent of African-Americans and 24 percent of Whites failed U.S. History, 28 percent of African-Americans and 14 percent of Whites failed Physical Science, and 34 percent of African-Americans and 28 percent of Whites failed Economics in the 2010-2011 school year.

The Whites who are forced to attend Quitman County High School are not a representative sample of the Whites who live in the area. As is the case everywhere in the Black Belt, the middle class and upper class families who can afford to do so pay taxes to support the Black Undertow public school and pay tuition to send their own children to a predominantly White private school.

The Visible Black Hand of Economics has sculpted the peculiar nature of the Black Undertow economy in Quitman County (GA) and Randolph County (GA). Perhaps even more significant though is the “Visible Black Cloud” which casts a dark shadow over West Central Georgia.

The “Visible Black Cloud” is what deters Whites from moving into Quitman County (GA) and Randolph County (GA). They can see the blackness of the region and the corresponding Africanized neighborhoods and the nature of Quitman County High School and Randolph Clay High School (which failed to make AYP), and the uninviting nature of the Black Undertow economy.

They quietly skip over the region, fail to settle there, fail to buy property there, fail to start businesses there, fail to reproduce there and create more virtuous productive citizens which creates the feedback loop of “progress.” The result is poverty, ignorance, and unemployment in these two counties. The result is that the Whites who are born there leave Quitman County (GA) to find employment elsewhere.

I don’t want to come across as someone who is ragging on the White people of Quitman County (GA) and Randolph County (GA). The people who live there are entirely blameless in the tragedy that has befallen the region. The federal government has created this problem by taking freedom and self government away from Whites in the name of promoting democracy and equality for African-Americans.

In 1860, 46.4 percent of the population of Quitman County (GA) and 46.7 percent of the population of Randolph County (GA) were slaves. Of the 333 free families in Quitman County (GA), 167 were slaveholders. Of the 907 free families in Randolph County (GA), 434 were slaveholders.

As we have already seen, the average antebellum slave was worth $134,000 dollars in 2009 dollars. In 1860, roughly half the White families in Quitman County (GA) and Randolph County (GA) were slaveowners. Thus, the average White slaveowner who owned just one slave in 1860 would have had an asset worth $134,000 in a county which in 2012 has an average per capita income of $13,632 dollars.

Quitman County (GA) was named after the Mississippi fire eater and secessionist Gov. John A. Quitman who was widely admired in Antebellum Georgia. A New Yorker by birth and a Southern man by the Grace of God (his home Monmouth in Natchez projects power and masculinity), Quitman is most well known for leading and financing the filibusters who attempted to acquire Cuba in the 1850s.

“I believe that the institution of negro slavery is not only right and proper, but the natural and normal condition of the superior and inferior races when in contact; that, as the chief element of our country’s prosperity, it constitutes a great interest, which is entitled, like other great interests, to the fostering care and protection of the federal government, within the sphere of its powers; that legislation directly or indirectly hostile to this interest, is at war with our compact of union, and should be resisted by the states and the people affected by it at all hazards; that the preservation of the institution of slavery in Cuba, which can only be affected by her independence and malign separation from the malign influence of European governments is essential to the safety and preservation of our own system; that our government ought not to thwart, but to encourage, by all proper means, the diffusion of American republican institutions on this continent; that it is consistent with the designs of Providence, and our right and duty not to restrain, but to encourage the Caucasian White race to carry humanity, civilization, and progress to the rich and fertile countries south of us, which now, in the occupation of mixed and inferior races, lie undeveloped and useless …

The people of Cuba, belong to the pure White Caucasian race, and descended from the best blood of the old Hidalgos, have displayed, in their hostility to Spanish misrule, a unanimity unequaled in the annals of revolution. …

In glancing at San Domingo we see a strange and grotesque power, under whose stupid sway that fair island, holding, with her commodious ports, the same relation to the Caribbean sea that Cuba holds to the Gulf of Mexico, is fast relapsing into barbarism. This caricature of government is sustained by mighty European influences in its attempt to exterminate the small white Dominican republic which still retains a portion of the island.”

147 years after the abolition of slavery, The Reality of Quitman County (GA) shows that John A. Quitman was absolutely right. Freedom failed … and the social and economic cost of freedom is absolutely staggering when you consider the fact that over 35 percent of the African-American population of Quitman County (GA) is sustained by the EBT card and the average single black woman in America has a net worth of $5 dollars.

The DWLs like Brooks D. Simpson who brought us abolition and integration have succeeded all right. They have succeeded in creating and sustaining an American version of Haiti or Congo in our midst. They have succeeded in undermining liberty and holding back the progress of civilization because they are wedded to delusional fantasies about “equality” which have no correspondence to reality.

Quitman County (GA) would be infinitely better off if the people who live there were allowed to shake off this yoke.

Note: In defense of the free negro, I have established that the local black population have been making contributions to the fine arts with odes to the local drug dealers who stand on the corner of South Street in Georgetown.

  1. Easiest summary: Niggers Ruin Everything (NRA).

    All true, and sad; we didn’t do this, but we know who did.

    Southern county where I was born about 40 years ago was less than 10% Black then and is about 70% Black now (and under 20% White, and falling fast). The usual explanations apply. It’s an unmitigated hellhole, I refuse to even visit.

    My solution – you will not like this – was to relocate to New England, to a relatively underpopulated part of it, where Blacks hardly exist. I’ll take Whites, of any ideological variety, over Blacks of any kind, any day.

    Sad to say, but the South is done, totally. The White homeland will never be in Dixie. Truth hurts.

  2. In places like Quitman County and Randolph County, you are dealing with extremely small numbers of blacks. In both cases, the area is depopulating and blacks are moving to the cities.

  3. Fleeing is no solution … look at the Pacific Northwest, where Washington and Oregon are rapidly being transformed into California. In places like Quitman County, demographic change has crawled to a standstill.

  4. This is what we are up against :

    http://mollyinhaiti.blogspot.com/

    The feminist-ultraliberal ethos that is destroying civilization and turning white men into faggots who refuse to impregnate white women and who instead become militants for the less capable.

    This Molly chick got crushed by Haitian “architecture” (concrete did not exist in the Stone Age; Haitians would have been so much better off without the outside world and its invidious insistence on movin’ on up from their native dung-walled huts) in the earthquake two years ago.

    It is highly possible that in addition to going to Haiti to help encourage that place of pestilence to become even more polluted by its own population, given that her third name is “Hightower” I’d say that Miss Molly took a dump in the gene pool and burfed out a niglet.

    Burfing niglets is an act of aggression against whitey. Make no mistake :

  5. An astounding article, Hunter. Because you contrasted so well the beauty and nobility of the Antebellum culture, with the squalor and utter non-humanity of the Chayed as Free Man, this routs anything that PBS (Propaganda Broadcasting System) can come up with.

    In spades….

  6. THIS is the problem :

    A few Fridays ago, I went to the beach with Kay Germaine staff members to celebrate the end of the summer session. We went past the nice beach I went to with the kids to a private resort complete with a monkey named Domingo in a little habitat greeting us at the entrance. I slept in the shade and swam in the ocean a little- but not too much because the ground was jagged and sharp with rocks and sea urchins from a destroyed reef that had once been there. The whole resort used to be a sugar cane plantation, and it was amazing how different the scene was 200 years later! Amazingly, I have come to discover that the grand majority of Haitians cannot swim- not even close. I had several adults clinging onto me for dear life in the water, and I have spent many hours in the pool at Tabarre teaching staff members to swim. Orlando, the guy who helps me out most days in the pool, can’t even float on his back- if he tries, he goes under, freaks out and spends the next several minutes coughing up all the water he inhaled.

    -The end of the summer session came with 2 big programs, one in Tabarre and one in Kenscoff. The first in Tabarre was very fun at the beginning, with the kids showing us the dances and songs they learned. I was having a great time until someone shouted, “Everyone in the water!” and I suddenly had 30+ people in, out and around the tiny pool. I knew that parents would come in to see the kids swim, but I didn’t know that I would have all the children, their siblings and some of their parents in the water with me at the same time! It was utter chaos, and I was extremely mad at some of the parents for allowing their children to do absolutely anything they wanted. It was getting pretty out of control when Tony, the one child I have that can actually swim, decided to make a running jump in to the water and hit his head on a steel support for the cover. His father was cheering him on! While he was on his way to the hospital for stitches, Norma helped me kick everyone out (politely) and the day was done.

    The Kenscoff program was a lot calmer, and I was very proud of my substitute English class and their rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Heal the World”. I videotaped it and put it on Youtube if you’re interested!

    The saddest part is that this Molly chick is (was) actually quite foxy.

    Instead of staying home and helping the white race (global population: <8% and shrinking) she jetted off to Haiti to "help" the negroes worsen their situation by outbreeding themselves.

    Haiti had a baby boom after the earthquake as a result of do-gooder intervention by dumb white cunts like Molly.

  7. Most of Quitman’s original possessions were either stolen in 1863, when the house was occupied by Union soldiers, or sold by Quitman’s daughters in 1865 due to financial difficulty.

    I am thinking about writing a letter to my Congressman and asking him to introduce a resolution to rename Quitman County as Shabazz the Rappin’ Pimpmobilin’ Cool Dude County – this might increase the tourist traffic to the financially unfortunate people who live there.

  8. I agree about women having halfcastes.

    It is almost certainly genocidal fantasy on the part of the black man. It it almost certainly a suicide fantasy on the part of the white woman. In the case of Klum, it’s something you typically see in Germans. They go so far overboard in their zest for something darker they fuck the first African speaking a European language they can find. Heidi Honey, why didn’t you just find a Spaniard or Italian if you wanted something to balance out your flaxen hair? Uuuurrrggghhhh what was she thinking?

    I think a white guy after a negress is STD roulette deep down.

  9. The Hispanics do not date or marry your blacks except the ones that are so Americanized that they have been taught by the schools that its ok. Also I see lots of white women with the blackest man they can find. (no white men out there?) Lots of blue eyed blacks here in Georgia ,Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana as well. I think you fought the civil war so you could free them and then screw them. I often wonder how you think your blacks are not your equal but you will rape or go to bed with a black woman.
    So stop crying over spilled milk (you spilled it) and get yourself a education and a life after all you have the white privilege don’t you ?
