Hell, even during Jim Crow the blacks in the south had their own businesses, they attended black churches and developed their own unique Christianity and Gospel music. Look at black music during segregation as compared to today. Fact of the matter is, a little “oppression” (i.e. structure provided by whites) and the natural gifts of black people absolutely flourish.
Liberalism was predicted in the Bible: Satan disguised as an “Angel of Light”. Destroys everything in the name of Love.
They openly tell you that the end result of embracing “diversity” is the end of diversity itself.
Reprobate minds. All of them.

Not being allowed to use the same infrastructure, not being allowed to work jobs other than menial labor, other citizens being allowed to kill you AT WILL with no trial or evidence presented (lynchings) and police brutality and profiling is "structure"? Sounds like the dominant group is the one without structure since they are allowed to do as they please with no consequences or responsibility. And why should one group be allowed to police another?
Anyways, this line was hilarious:
"the blacks in the south had their own businesses"
There are still black-owned businesses today. Over 2 million of America's 20 million or so businesses are black-owned. In fact, minority-owned businesses (particularly black-owned ones) have grown at a much faster rate than the number of white-owned businesses popping up.
That's something you don't hear in mainstream news, is it? Mainstream media prefers to focus on negative and sensationalist stories in general, but especially when it comes to minorities (and blacks and Arabs are their favorite targets).

"Look at black music during segregation as compared to today."
That's a matter of taste, surely?
"Liberalism was predicted in the Bible: Satan disguised as an “Angel of Light”."
You know that Jesus fellow? He doesn't seem all that conservative to me.

And this is the main intention of the Religious Right: To turn conservatism into a divine imperative.

Erm... yeah. That's not actually in the Bible, as far as I'm aware. Satan disgusing himself as an angel of light is, but not said angel of light destroying everything in the name of love. And even then, the "angel of light" thing wasn't an actual prophecy or literal statement, but a rhetorical device used by Paul to describe false prophets claiming to be Christians.
