FDR's Famous Admonition -- Updated

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a Democrat, and the only four-term U.S, President thus far, and all of those occurring during my childhood, is famous for saying, among many other entirely apt things: "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."

Today that admonition rings as loudly and as validly as during the Great Depression and World War 2, and it only needs to be updated and made truer than ever, to read:  "The only thing we have to fear is the fear of a large segment of the so-called 'white' part of our populace."

And because they together with the others in their group control everything in the U.S., save for certain spectator sports in which balls of various sizes are batted back and forth, and also portions of the popular music industry,  the rest of us must endure being dragged along willynilly in the wake of their numerous unfounded fears and suffer the fates of tin cans, people, partially disconnected mufflers, and anything else that has the colossal bad fortune to be dragged over roads by cars with devils, drunks, and fools at the wheel.
