" . . . We can deal with the symptoms or we can deal with the root causes. The irony is that there’s a lot of northerners and a lot of liberals who think it’s a foregone conclusion to tear down these buildings and change the names without addressing the systemic issues.”

He stated that racism must be addressed with more than empty rhetoric for real change to occur.

“We don’t actually talk about the actual systemic policies and the families that were really responsible for the worst of the worst and that, to me, I think is a bigger issue. Let’s address that. Changing the name is not going to change the history, it’s not even going to change policies, which affect people’s lives.”

Ultimately, Rabb said we don’t know enough about our own history to understand the ramifications it has on our culture today.

“We first have to know what the history is. There’s a difference between the past, the past is that which has already happened. The history is how we tell that story. We can change history, but we can’t change the past,…We don’t know because in this country, we do not really honor history, we do not honor that type of intellectual discourse that we should and once we start doing that, we can start figuring out how we want to live in a society that is inclusive and fair. But until then, we’re delusional.”

What I find amazing about this racism liberal propaganda push. The narrative that I see and read. Is that according to the blacks the whites are the only racsits people or the right wing nut jobs. As liberals like to say. So I'm to believe that there is not one racsits black in the US. It's all white folks ... This word racsits is being thrown around every time the liberal agend is not met. Then you have the first so called black president. That has done nothing for the African American community. Obama has done nothing but add fuel to the racsits fire. Divid and conquer. What has the Democratic part done for there voting base. Have they moved them out of the getto. Have they gave them jobs. Democratic party makes big promises but never do anything they promise. If the Democratic party is doing some many good things for its voters and base.... Then why are liberals lives not getting any better? If there getting what they want they wouldn't be so pissed off all the time.
