Buchanan: Who Is Really Killing American Democracy?

Prediction: This will become yet another source of societal division as many Black folks celebrate their special Independence Day, and the rest of America continues to celebrate July 4 as Independence Day two weeks later.

Why the pessimism? Consider.

Days before Congress acted, the Randolph, New Jersey, board of education voted to change Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day.

A backlash ensued, and the board quickly voted to rescind its decision.

Still under fire, the board voted to drop all designated holidays from the school calendar and replace them with the simple notation “Day Off.”

The school board had surrendered, punted, given up on trying to find holidays that the citizens of Randolph might celebrate together.

But the “day off” mandate created another firestorm, and the board is now restoring all the previous holidays, including that of Columbus.

Atlanta Community Moves to Separate from City over Rising Crime: ‘Our Divorce Is Final’

An Atlanta community has reportedly made the decision to separate from the city in order to create its own police force, according to Bill White, who is the Buckhead City Committee CEO.

White said the decision was made as crime in Atlanta has risen, and the police are not receiving the proper funds, Fox News reported Thursday.

He told the outlet’s Bill Hemmer during an interview on America’s Newsroom he estimates about 80 percent of the community will vote in favor of the move.

“We have two bills in the Georgia legislature dropping in January to decide this referendum ballot,” White commented, adding, “We filed our divorce papers at the city of Atlanta, and our divorce is final.”

According to White, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ (D) policies have emboldened criminals and disappointed the Atlanta Police Department.

“They feel demoralized, underpaid, under-recognized. They are being told basically not to fight crime in the way they would like to,” he commented.
