40. Putting aside all the rest of your historical inaccuracies & falsehoods in this laughable OP,

I choose to focus on this:

"But the period from which black Americans gained the most in legal rights and government money outside the deep south happened to be the same period that black Americans burned down large areas of many, many large non-southern American cities."

False.

Brown v. Board was decided in 1954; the first major Civil Rights act since the Civil War was passed in 1957. The single largest comprehensive advance for African-Americans in terms of enforceable legal tools and remedies for their oppression came with the Civil Rights act of 1964, and the Voting Rights act of 1965 - before nary a single city had "burned."

There were reasons of long-standing historical and economic injustice that led to the riots in the Black ghettos of the mid-to-late 1960s, but those came after the major Civil Rights laws had already been passed, not before.

The sad truth is that you really should study history, before you presume to post about it. Pro-tip.
