In the last decade the sudden reemergence of the Ben Franklin ‘fro has seen a decline in teen pregnancies, gun crime, and the highest stock surge in our nation’s history. Whether it’s saving beer from drowning in the flood waters of Hurricane Katrina, Or young white girls from a house in suburbs of Cleveland, A little bit of Ben Franklin lives on. Although the famed Ben Franklin beer quote is a simplification of what he actually stated.
“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.“
“Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, there it enters the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine, a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy.”

No one made this realization more clear than The Godfather of soul himself, Mr.James Brown where in 2004 he was picked up on domestic abuse charges. Had his hair line been about 2 and a half or more inches higher on his forehead, he may have liberated Amanda Berry prior to his 2006 death.
Although Ben Franklin was a slave owner at one period in time, He became an abolitionist after getting to know his slaves and other black families in his area. His later writings reveal a change of heart.
“I was on the whole much pleased, and from what I then saw, have conceived a higher opinion of the natural capacities of the black race, than I had ever before entertained. Their apprehension seems as quick, their memory as strong, and their docility in every respect equal to that of white children.”
