From USA Today: As in Confederate, from Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, Black America takes place in a universe where the South has seceded from the Union. But where Confederate imagines slavery as a modern-day institution, the Amazon offering focuses on freed slaves who form their own country, New Colonia, out of the states of Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana, given to them as reparations for the country's original sin. New Colonia has been at peace with the United States for twenty years following 150 years of fighting. But their newfound accord is endangered by an economic role reversal: the new country has emerged as a new global power player as America slides into decline. I have a friend who is a very successful college textbook author (Sociology). His textbooks are maximum PC bullshit, but in private he's very honest. One time we were talking and imagining what if blacks got the south as a separate country. My friend said that the US could give blacks the south and each one of them a million dollars. In two years they'd all be flat broke and there would be a ring of rich Jews around the border. Then they'd all be streaming north.
