Blacks

In the dog hours after two a.m., the empty time when the streets are dark and lifeless, a police car is an alien bubble, a small moving world unconnected with the streets, not part of the neighborhood. Yet it has to be there. The city is dead. Blank windows, alley mouths leading into nowhere. Parked... Read More

A Racial Snapshot of America
Let us look into the abyss. It will do no good. First, another page in the sordid comic book of American race relations. In Beijing, three black basketball players from UCLA were arrested for shoplifting. They faced jail time. Ten years, actually. The theft was so stupid that it demands explanation. It was too stupid... Read More
Curiously, what made me give up all interest in the problems of blacks was not their virulent racism, their horrendous rates of crime, or their parasitism. Instead it was the assaults by blacks and their fellow travelers on Confederate monuments, particularly in New Orleans. Similarly, the banning of the Confederate battle flag at Gettysburg, for...

Headline on Drudge. THUGS OF CHARLOTTE WHITE MAN DRAGGED, BEATEN BEGGING FOR MERCY Just another day at the Exceptional Nation. Racial attacks, racial threats, looting, burning. When I am politically upset, I loot stores. Don’t you? It is worth understanding what we deal with. The video makes it rioters grow in imagination. This time they... Read More
Continuity is comforting. The sun rises, the value of pi remains unchanged, businesses burn, cars are smashed, and rioters with the minds of children and the hormones of adults throw bricks at the police. All in good fun. These incidents seem to come at shorter intervals. In characteristic confusion, in Milwaukee the mob believed that... Read More

Something is Wrong Somewhere
Some time ago I read a column on the schooling of blacks written by Walter Williams, the black economist at George Mason University, who grew up in the black housing projects of Philadelphia in the Thirties. I have read Williams for years. He is an absolutely reliable witness. He reports that all the kids could... Read More
In reading the endless complaints by blacks about shootings by the police, I usually find it hard to know what really happened. As far as I am aware, the media never allow an unedited interview, or any interview, with the police charged with the shootings but allow endless commentary by people who weren’t there. I...

Understanding Useful Idiocy
To the Grand Klaftan and National Klug of the Knights of the Invisible Empire, Ku Klux Klan, December 16, 2015 From Klizzard Fred, laboring for Our Holy Cause in Washington DC Esteemed Klaftan, Greetings from the Yankee Capital. In conformity with your instructions, I provide below a concise assessment of the mood of the nation... Read More

It warms the heart of a curmudgeon: As I suppose we all have heard by now, black semi-pro football players at the University (sic) of Missouri have forced white officials to resign because of “White Privilege.” This Privilege is a great upsettance to them. White Privilege is real, of course. It is a combination of... Read More

Making Things Worse
Note: Last week’s column on evolutionary biology was a total spoof with imaginary brain anatomy and so on. Some people took it seriously. My apologies. It never stops, and won’t. Another state of emergency in Ferguson. Headline: “Post-Dispatch Reporter Recovering after Attack while Covering Ferguson.” He was photographing break-ins. “The attackers punched him in the...

Getting the Facts Straight
I find Cornel West, a black professor, complaining of White Supremacy, which he believes our black President needs to remedy. Obama, he says, is “niggerized.” “A niggerized black person is a black person who is afraid and scared and intimidated when it comes to putting a spotlight on white supremacy and fighting against white supremacy,”...

I Hear the Fat Lady Singing
Breitbart: A white man in Baltimore was sitting in his car when two female er, teens got into a fight. To continue this enterprise they climbed atop his car, perhaps mistaking it for a tree. He got out and asked them to take their dispute somewhere else, whereupon fifty er, teens beat him nearly to... Read More
As a certified member of the curmudgeon's tribe, practicing our dismal and lonely trade, I am delighted by the events in Baltimore. Among curmudgeons, almost our only joy is the gratification of confirmation of our dark expectations of humanity. In the case of Ballmer, a particular source of somber joy is the gap separating the... Read More
An Excursion into Northern Politics of Race
Race riot in he South, 1863. Wikipedia: "Rioters subjected black men to the most brutal violence: torture, hanging, and burning." Eleven were lynched. The Southern mob depicted here were afraid that if the North won the Civil War, freed slaves would take the jobs of whites. Virginian though I am, a son of the Shenandoah,... Read More

The Symptoms Worsen
Partial index, Knockout Game a Lie? To cure a disease, begin by admitting that you have it. Ah, the joys of escalation. In Ferguson blacks are shooting policemen as others cheer .It does a curmudgeon’s soul good: Everything gets worse, the collapse continues, and unreasoning stupidity goes thundering into the future. We will hear I... Read More
It is Eating America
Racism "Deeply Rooted" --- President Obama White Americans are in denial about racism in the United States. It exists. It is intense. So are misogyny and homophobia. Do not be fooled: While these evils are seldom openly expressed, they permeate society in the form of institutional racism and code-worded discrimination. To bring these to the... Read More

Thoughts on the Unfixable
Two questions, methinks, arise from Ferguson's latest outburst. The first, political, is "Why does the country tolerate it?" The second, more anthropologically interesting, is "Why the eerie incapacity of underclass blacks to understand evidence, or law, or much of anything?" Of the countless explanations given for the poor performance and poor behavior of blacks in... Read More

A Done Deal
As I write America waits, again, to see whether blacks will riot, this time in Ferguson. Will they loot, burn, kill, and rape? The usual? The police in Ferguson prepare to protect stores from looters, as rioters seem to regard their insurrections as shopping opportunities. Will it come, we wonder tensely? Will the destruction get...

What Cops Really Do
See Fred Reed's Cop Columns - From a Police Reporter's Notebook The police are out of control all across the country. They can kick in your door at three a.m., shoot your dog, and handcuff your daughters, and you have no recourse. All of this happens with the explicit, intentional help of the federal government....

Random Thoughts on a Confluence of Putrescenses
Methinks there cometh three horsemen of a sorry apocalypse: First, blacks are again rioting, looting, and burning. Second, the media are as usual lying, interpreting, concealing. Third, swatted-out heavies of a bush-league police force knock reporters around, arresting them for nothing, and refusing to reveal their identities. We are seeing the birth of a nation.... Read More
"It´s Just a Lump. It Will Probably Go Away."
I think I will don a loin cloth, stop bathing, and ascend a moutain where I will gibber, drool, and perhaps cástrate myself and wait to go to Hale-Bopp. This is a patrioitic plan. I don´t want to distance myself too much from my fellow Americans. Though, on thought, I may welsh on the castration... Read More
Ain't Nobody Gonna Like It
Watching the Zimmerman trial, I wonder whether we may not be in for big trouble. Racial hostility is much higher in the United States than it is allowed to appear. In the Twittersphere there is much traffic from blacks, saying that if Zimmerman walks, they will kill him themselves, riot, or kill random whites. On... Read More

The Raging Success of American Racial Policy
Having just gotten home after three weeks of travel in the US, I find on the web yet more accounts of racial attacks on whites by mobs of black punks. They grow more common. How long are we going to tolerate this? Why do we put up with it at all? Because of race. Race... Read More
Cops, Race, Reporters
Journalism in America, and perhaps everywhere, works according to unacknowledged templates in which the reporter fills in blanks, thus saving him the nuisance of thought, for which he is generally not well suited anyway. In matters of race, it also saves him from being drawn and quartered for Crime Thought. If he follows the template,... Read More
Reflections on Social Policy
I'm supposed to write this column, and generally do. Today I'll let a reader dosome of it. First, a prolog: I recently wrote a column saying that the black underclass is out of control, becoming more confrontational, attacking whites and robbing stores in flash mobs, and that whites are more openly getting sick of it,...

Dismal Racial Premonitions
Like everyone else, I suppose, I've been watching the racial riotsthat have erupted across England. The newsies of the BBC carefully avoided saying who was rioting, vandalizing, and stealing, and the footage was all fuzzy long shots or of rioters from the back. They were, however, as a reporter for The Independent pointed out, heavuly... Read More
A Time for Attention
.I found on the Drudge Report yesterday a cell-phone video of yet another attack against whites by feral blacks in the cities, in this case Baltimore, where in a McDonald’s two black females kicked a white girl into convulsions, presumably due to brain damage. It seems there was a dispute over precedence for the rest... Read More
Toward a Gilded Peasantry
Gabe: "I don't know what to do on this."Ms. Williams: "Well, you'd better find out. It's not hard. Nobody else didn't have to ask no questions bout it. You know what to do, you just want somebody to just sit there and pet you about it, but I ain't gonna do it. You know how... Read More
The Case for Expatriation
Again it happens. In Baltimore a young white woman boards a bus and wants to sit down. Each time she tries to take a seat she is told by nine black middle-schools students, ages 14 and 15, including three girls, that she can’t. Finally she sits anyway. The little—the middle-school students, I mean—attack her. From... Read More
The Hazards of Regarding Lying as a Solution
Christopher Newsom, Jr. and Channon Gail Christian. Raped and killed Those who did it. Diversity is remarkable for its homogeneity. From :Wikipedia: “Christian's parents found her abandoned Toyota 4-Runner two blocks away from the Chipman Street house on Monday, with the help of her mobile phone provider. An envelope recovered from the vehicle yielded fingerprint... Read More
It Wasn't Supposed To Be This Way
I was traveling in China when pictures of the looters in New Orleans began to appear on CNN. They were black of course. Looting and raping and burning are what blacks do when the lid loosens. Yes, I could phrase this more cautiously: These things are what some blacks, etc. or, more cutely, not all... Read More
Maybe Some Things Aren't Somebody Else's Fault
I discovered recently in the Washington Post that a group of black lawyers, to include with the predictability of gravitation Johnny Cochran, is planning to sue for reparations for, sigh, slavery. Blacks want more money (I could stop the sentence here) from me and my children. Sometimes I feel like an udder. The case for... Read More
Maybe They Need A Better Class Of Friends
Do blacks realize the contempt in which the government, the universities, and what is frequently called the “liberal establishment”—though it is hardly that—hold them? That the transparent premise of virtually all racial policy is that blacks are irremediably helpless?I recently saw a news story saying that a black girl at the University of Colorado, I... Read More
Disorganized Thoughts On Racial Nonfeasance
From time to time I get mail informing me that blacks are being mistreated, as for example by not being sufficiently represented among the ranks of athletic coaches, and implying that I should oppose such inequity. Regarding which: First, I do not oppose racial discrimination against blacks. In 1965, I did. My view then, as... Read More
Fred Fights For Justice. Like Batman.
Magazines, and those reprehensible lying TV shows like Twenty Minutes or whatever, are bleating like hung-over goats about how universities mulct black basketball players. Yeah. The players get used for the glory of the school, and then thrown on the street when their eligibility wears out, like cheap shoes with a hole in the sole.... Read More
Useful As An Iron Lungi
The letters from blacks come in dribs and drabs to my mailbox, not many, but several a week. They vary. Most are in ordinary English. A few carry the characteristic misspellings and odd grammar of uneducated blacks. Most are civil. Many are virulent in their hostility to me, understandable given my expressed distaste for racial... Read More
Sells Out To Johnny Cochran
I see by the papers in the Yankee Capital that Johnny Cochran, and of course Jesse and Al, are wheezing and blowing like a county-fair calliope with a leaky boiler. They always are. This time it was about the need to pay reparations for the ravages trala of slavery. It got me to thinking. I... Read More
Not Colin Powell And The Cosbys
The recent race war in Cincinnati -- which is what it was -- might reasonably lead one to ponder the black underclass, its nature, behavior, crimes, and intentions toward whites. Permit me a few unpleasant observations, inescapable after years on the police beat: Crime by the underclass is racial, predatory, and very much targeted against... Read More
Are The Media Actualy Trying To Start Riots?
Since the looting and burning in Cincinnati, the mainstream media have mentioned over and over the fifteen black men killed by police in the city in recent years. The implication, never so far as I know buttressed with data, has been that the police were unjustified, that they kill blacks for reasons of racism. The... Read More
Questioning Togetherheid
As I write, Cincinnati is under curfew. A white police officer shot and killed a black man. Blacks have been looting and burning. The media imply that the shooting was unnecessary, an example of police brutality. Perhaps it was. I don't know. I wasn't there. Over and over it happens. Something upsets blacks, and they...

Figuring It Out
As the Rio Grande flows ever more northward, and Spanish grows common on the streets of America, and tacos appear in the lunch counters of high schools along with the usual inedible fare, people worry that "the minorities" may one day be in the majority, and band together against whites. I wouldn't bet on it.... Read More
Orwell, With Lots More Consumer Goods
Am I the only one who wearies of being racially managed like an errant child of three? Who wearies of being instructed, exhorted, lied to about race? Who wearies of having my children trained like performing dogs, made to recite social doctrine that few any longer believe and that helps neither black nor white? Who... Read More
What Do People Really Want?
Last week I wrote a column saying that white cops have become so gun shy about being charged with racism, and thereby losing jobs, promotions, and careers, that many of them have stopped enforcing the law when blacks are involved. As part of the column I printed a letter from a cop in PG County... Read More
Maybe Some Things Aren't Somebody Else's Fault
I discovered recently in the Washington Post that a group of black lawyers, to include with the predictability of gravitation Johnny Cochran, is planning to sue for reparations for, sigh, slavery. Blacks want more money (I could stop the sentence here) from me and my children. Sometimes I feel like an udder. The case for... Read More
The Subject That Never Goes Away
I keep hearing, sometime from blacks, often from whites who heard the stories somewhere but don't know details, of cops racially harassing middle-class black people here in the metro area. I got a rendition of this last night: Respectable black couples in nice clothes in nice cars repeatedly being stopped and checked out for no... Read More
A Letter From A White Supremacist Of The Fifties
The following is a letter recently found in the attic of a building in Arlington, Virginia, that once served as headquarters of the American Nazi Party. The author, though unknown to me, is clearly a racist of the vilest sort. We may profit by understanding the mind of such a man. From: George Rockwell, Arlington,... Read More
The Political Congruence Of David Duke And The NAACP
Tell me, is there any functional difference between the average black leader and David Duke? Any difference, I mean, besides candor? Do they not produce the same practical results--i.e., precisely nothing?Duke says straightforwardly that he thinks blacks are stupid and shiftless. The black leaders act exactly as if they thought the same thing, though they... Read More
The Confederate Flag And The Eternity Of Entitlement
It never stops. On the lobotomy box I once again saw blacks agitating about the Confederate flag. They want it removed, the announcer said, from the official paraphernalia of yet another Southern state. Cleanse those license-plate holders. Purify the evil that lurks in South Carolina. Abolish if possible an entire culture, erase its history, wash... Read More
Will It Work Forever?
Oh, Lord. I'd pull my hair out, if I had more.On the Web I find that Henry Louis Gates Jr., the chairman of Afro-American Studies at Harvard, is demanding that whites, pay reparations to blacks. It's because of slavery, see. He is joined in this endeavor by a gaggle of other professional blacks. I guess... Read More
Everything Is Always Someone Else's Fault. Ours.
I believe that if I hear one more black politician hollering about how the United States is no damn good, and nobody in it is any damn good, and everyone discriminates against blacks, and denies them opportunity, and represses them, and doesn't do everything they want, and expects them to behave, I'm going to start...
