During the Battle of New Orleans in 1815, roughly 4,500 ill-equipped southerners repelled a sizable fleet of the Royal Navy and 11,000 British soldiers to preserve our fledgling republic. Although the port and city of New Orleans was feared lost before hostilities even began, only 55 of Andrew Jackson’s men lost their lives during the near three week siege. The American force was largely composed of militia from Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky and Louisiana, as well as local pirates, Choctaw Indians and free blacks. In the spirit of political correctness, perhaps the time has come to honor Al Sharpton, Barack Obama and the liberal media by removing all notable monuments and commercial memorabilia commemorating this historic victory in order to accommodate the “Black Lives Matter” campaign of concerned citizens. Furthermore, the English Empire has expressed great interest in accepting the Old South as fair compensation to resolve this revisionist debt. Ironically, a memorial has yet to be erected to memorialize the over 6,000 victims of black-on-black homicides each year. There is no blueprint in place, or notable public outrage by civil rights leaders, to competently address or prevent such future tragedies from happening. Angry souls make eager voters and racial harmony denies political parasites a host.
