  • There is a natural disgust in the minds of nearly all white people to the idea of indiscriminate amalgamation of the white and black races...

This has driven up the cost of houses by at least $4,000 each. In addition, regulators ordered a Kansas City bank to install a Braille keypad on its drive-through automatic teller machine, presumably to aid any blind drivers. The list goes on and on.
