I find nothing more useless than debating the existence of racism, particularly when you are surrounded by evidence of its existence. It feels to me like a way to keep you fighting against the water until you drown.

The debates themselves, I believe, render a simple concept impossibly complex, making the very meaning of “racism” frustratingly murky.

So, let’s strip that away here. Let’s be honest and forthright.

Racism is simply the belief that race is an inherent and determining factor in a person’s or a people’s character and capabilities, rendering some inferior and others superior. These beliefs are racial prejudices.

The history of America is one in which white people used racism and white supremacy to develop a racial caste system that advantaged them and disadvantaged others.

Understanding this, it is not a stretch to understand that Donald Trump’s words and deeds over the course of his life have demonstrated a pattern of expressing racial prejudices that demean people who are black and brown and that play to the racial hostilities of other white people.

It is not a stretch to say that Trump is racist. It’s not a stretch to say that he is a white supremacist. It’s not a stretch to say that Trump is a bigot.

Those are just facts, supported by the proof of the words that keep coming directly from him. And, when he is called out for his racism, his response is never to ameliorate his rhetoric, but to double down on it.

I know of no point during his entire life where he has apologized for, repented of, or sought absolution for any of his racist actions or comments.

Instead, he either denies, deflects or amps up the attack.

Trump is a racist. We can put that baby to bed.

“Racism” and “racist” are simply words that have definitions, and Trump comfortably and unambiguously meets those definitions.

    Sought absolution? How does that work? Isn’t the whole point that there is no way to “absolve” anybody: the victims are either long gone or impossible to identify, the perpetrator is society as a whole, and, if “absolution” occurs, it means the “sins” are washed clean, instead of constantly thrown in white people’s faces 150 years after the fact.

    Exactly. Let’s break down the word; just as an atheist is a person who does not believe that god is real and a deist is someone who believes that god is real, a racist is a person who believes that race is real. I, Charles Blow, and 99% of humans believe that race is real and are therefore racists. Only the most self-delusional Libs believe race is a construct. Blacks are absolutely the most fervent of racists. Their entire self awareness and worth revolves around race.
    I don’t believe in inherent White supremacy because from my scientific training I adhere to the objective observation of what constitutes supremacy in nature: The superior organism is one that exploits its environment, expands its numbers and range, and replaces competing organisms. For four hundred years Whites did so against other humans in the environment of those times, and were in the environment of Earth at that time superior.
    In the environment of the modern liberal West, the White characteristics of high intellect, low time preference, altruism, openness, and tolerance are causing us to fail to reproduce and to be replaced in our own territories by migrating races. The ability to obtain advanced degrees is an evolutionary negative if it causes you to defer having children. Whites are currently objectively inferior in performance as biological organisms.
    Change the environment and the superiority shoe might be on the other foot.
    Traits that make an organism supreme in one environment make it inferior in another. Put me and a shark on land and I’m superior. Drop both of us in the middle of the ocean and the tables turn.
    People like Blow fixate on the term “White Supremacy” because they have an anachronistic fear that it might still be true. He has nothing to worry about there. Yet.

    Hey, and sexism is resurgent in Sri Lanka:

    Social media users are outraged by the president’s reversal of last week’s decision to relax a discriminatory restriction on selling liquor to female customers.

    On January 14, Sri Lanka’s President Maithripala Sirisena overruled a new reform to lift a decades-old ban on women buying alcohol and working in places that sell or manufacture spirits in Sri Lanka. The ban was reimposed after the Minister of Finance and Mass Media, Mangala Samaraweera, announced a reform on January 10.

    …The decision to abolish the 1979 law prohibiting the sale of any type of spirits to women was made on the basis that it discriminated against women. However, it provoked a backlash in some regions of the mainly Buddhist country, with activists accusing the government of encouraging women’s alcohol consumption which disrupts family values and culture.

  16. Get a look at Blow’s act on CNN. He’s a preening narcissist; a textbook example of Black privilege. His hatred of White people is palpable.

  22. I am very much upset with people who are not able to put 2 and 2 together.
    Obama.s emigration policies have made perfect sense. US imported as much emigrants from shithole countries as it could. Zionist Globalism was going full speed ahead.
    These emigrants purpose was to be a communication link with a future vassal countries.
    But like always things change.
    Russia as Phoenix have risen from ashes. China is performing economic miracle and result is that China is asserting his well deserving place in the world.
    Zionist Globalist military adventures just ended.
    Zionist Globalism is dead and already is emitting repugnant odor.

    US will not have a conquered vassal states in Middle east or Africa, or Asia.
    So all those emigrants from shithole countries now had become redundant.

    So Trump is right. Not only US does not need emigrants from shithole countries US does need even those who are already in US.

Where these demented dirt bags make their mistake is in demonizing the sixty three millions of people who voted for Trump. It’s people like Blow who keep me rooted in the Trump camp.

  32. Randal says:

    As usual the obvious conclusion to be drawn from such charges is that if Trump is a racist then being a racist is clearly not necessarily a bad thing.

    He obviously doesn’t hate blacks just for being black, and merely recognises the realities of racial differences when they present themselves to him, instead of pretending they don’t exist for ideological reasons, antiracist style. What’s wrong with his approach?

    This is a truth of general application to all the smears of political correctness, because they all rely upon the basic dishonesty of shifting the meaning of the smear term to suit the context, allowing them to first stretch the category to include as many of their political enemies as possible, and then contract it to just apply to the most noxiously evil examples when they want to smear their aforementioned enemies by association. It’s a form of what is known as a motte-and-bailey fallacy. Thus:

    A “racist” is anybody who notices racial differences, in order to include as many as possible of the people who fail to kowtow to the politically correct view that suits the identity lobby activists. Then a “racist” becomes a criminal thug who hates people of other races and wants to assault or even murder them all merely because of what they are, when the need is to establish how “evil” racism is.

    A “homophobe” is anybody who, like most humans throughout history, disapproves of people engaging in homosexual activity, or dislikes the normalisation of such activity in societies where it was formerly disapproved and even criminalised to general popular approval, in order to include as many as possible of the people who fail to kowtow to the politically correct view that suits the identity lobby activists. Then a “homophobe” becomes a criminal thug who hates people who choose to engage in homosexual activity and wants to assault or even murder them all merely for doing so, when the need is to establish how “evil” homophobia is.

    An “antisemite” is anybody who notices that there is a jewish lobby and that jews as a group have collective interests that they pursue collectively, or that jewish people are massively over represented in government, big money lobbies and media and exercise clearly disproportionate influence on politics and government policies such as waging wars for Israel, or that judaism is a foreign culture in the formerly Christian countries of Europe and the US just as much as islam is, in order to include as many as possible of the people who fail to kowtow to the politically correct view that suits the identity lobby activists. Then an “antisemite” becomes a criminal thug who hates jews merely for being jewish, and wants to assault or even murder them all, when the need is to establish how “evil” antisemitism is.

    The general rules: either the vast majority of people accused of being racist are not racist, or being racist is not necessarily a bad thing to be. Either the vast majority of people accused of being homophobes are not homophobic, or being homophobic is not necessarily a bad thing to be. Either the vast majority of people accused of being antisemites are not antisemitic, or being antisemitic is not necessarily a bad thing to be.

    Etc ad nauseam for all the political correctness smears.

    {Charles Schumer and Ana Navarro have told us today how Trump can gain absolution: Cave on amnesty and he will “begin to prove” he’s not racist.}

    The whole purpose of these relentless attacks is precisely to mess with Trump’s mind, so he can be “shamed” into caving on the wall, DACA, immigration,etc,etc.

    Trump did very well when he was being accused of various things during and after the election. His retorts were classic Trump, and very effective in shutting down the accusers.
    But attacks seem to have taken a toll, because he recently made a major boo-boo: in response to questions by reporters, he said “I am not a racist……”: when you say you are not a racist, your (false) accusers have won the point. The old Trump way to respond would have been something along the lines “…..those who are accusing me of being racist are the real racists…..”

    Nothing in his highly public life prior to becoming POTUS gives even a hint that he has a racist bone in his body. Can his accusers point to any incidents of racism before he became POTUS? But the anti-Trump attack dogs who want to neuter him will never give up.

    Yes, Haiti is a s_____hole. (or s____house, as Trump has supposedly phrased it).
    Doesn’t mean Haitian are s___tty people: they are good people trapped in a nightmarish failed state. Many Haitian immigrants have done quite well here in US.

    But for whatever historical reasons, Haiti is demonstrably a s___hole,….all the way back to Papa Doc’s voodoo dictatorship, the Baby Doc’s misrule… Jean-Bertrand Aristide’s misrule,… failed leadership after another.

  38. Charles M. Blow (sounds like a semi-comic name that Charles Dickens would give one of his characters) is not very good at stating definitions:
    “Racism is simply the belief that race is an inherent and determining factor in a person’s or a people’s character and capabilities, rendering some inferior and others superior.”

    For one thing, what is the antecedent of the pronoun “some”? Are some capabilities superior to other capabilities? Some character traits? Some persons? Some peoples? And how can a belief “render” (= make) some capabilities superior to others? What he must mean by “rendering” is “seeing, holding”.

    I have been saying for the last year and nobody will listen to me : turn it around on them, start throwing the “racist” label right back in their faces.
    This is their most potent weapon, and they only own it because nobody on the other side dares to take it away from them.
    I have encountered far more racist liberals than racist conservatives in my world travels however they own the bludgeon of “racism” simply because they are the only ones employing it.

    We could make some comment about Potiphar’s wife, but the abysmal knowledge of the Bible precludes that. Or for that matter, Edgar Allen Poe’s Purloined Letter. So much, in other words, for the job high school American Lit classes are doing when it comes to any kind of real literacy.

    But to state the obvious. We have just had 8 years of misrule from a passive aggressive prez, who previously spent 20 years in the black version of a KKK church. IOW Jeremiah Wright’s homeboy, James Cone, with his Black Liberation theology essentially politicized/externalized original sin. “Whiteness” is now the root sin from which, (racist) sinners need to be delivered.

    This means one, black racism is the new normal and anybody born white is automatically a racist, no matter what they think, say or do. (Likewise blacks who don’t buy in. You listening, Clarence T?) Enter stage left then, clowns, puppets and racemongers like Mr. Blowhard, who have a lucrative job repeating the obvious to those who need to hear it the most, all the guilty white liberal progressives for whom the word of the NYTimes is gospel.

    Two, it is also a historical fact of raycist white privilege, that the same old usual suspects have already been here, done that.
    At least three times, no less. We speak of the demonizing of the royalty/clergy in the French Revolution, of the kulaks and Trotskyite wreckers in the Bolshevik Revolution and the Jews/gypsies/non Aryans in the Nazi Revolution with the Chinese bringing up the rear in regard to the Four Olds in their Cultural Revolution.

    And now , black people want to get in on the same thing, but at an inter racial level. Evidently it’s a civil right and bound to be a success. Oh happy day.

    For my part, I think it a blatantly egregious and arrogant cultural appropriation of whyte history for which they ought to pay dearly. They of course will – vide black Africa – but not quite in the way they think if they is successful (sic). Still, in an attempt to graciously go with the flow, perhaps we could start awarding such outstanding run of the mill epigones like Mr. Blowhard, annual Sh*thole Speaketh trophies or statuettes.

    You know, something like that guy from Norway, Munch’s Scream, but modeled in bronze after MLK or Al “The Snitch” Sharpton.

    Trouble is, at best right now, all Charles can do is hit people over the head with a rolled up NYTimes. If he gets his very own SS award, for the sake of the cause, he’ll be clubbing people over the head with it soon enough.

    Thank you for articulating far better than I can what I’ve been saying for years around here.

    Btw, the irony that whites created the very environment to which we aren’t suited will cause chuckles to future historians. They’ll probably coin some clever phrase about it.

    The only question is what will happen to whites. Obviously, a good portion of whites will be culled from the white herd either by not having kids or by mixing with other races. But will a group of much more tribal whites survive?

    I used to think that we were doomed, but I don’t know anymore. Trump’s a buffoon but he showed that whites were showing some embryonic signs of identity. It’s still couched in euphemisms, but whites seem to be realizing that we no longer dominate and can’t afford to be so tolerant and open.

    OTOH, South Africa shows the opposite. The Afrikaners seem to be going gentle into that good night.

    It might sound silly, but I’ve always suspected that a demand for “European-American” or white associations might be the first real sign of white unity. Right now, that seems impossible, but at some point, young whites will look around and realize that they’re the only ones without a student association. What about European-American business groups and community organizations. Nothing overtly racist. We’d just want what others have.

This benign “racism” – the smug belief that my friends and I are better than you – does no real harm.

    People think the word “racism” is, like, magic. They just hurl it at their opponent, and it destroys them.

    But the thing about magic is that if always fails you when you need it most.

  63. Because it is in the neocon deep state New York Times, one can perhaps even draw the inference that Trump is probably not really a racist even if he really is. After all, the Times’ degeneration into propaganda has been fully documented, including in the writings of former star reporters who have left there, such as Chris Hedges, James Risen, and Robert Parry. As for “racism” it is amorphous, and everybody is “racist” to the extent they want to defend their own ethnicity in some fashion and will oppose those who seek to disfavour their ethnicity, as is occurring with the absurd politically correct identity politics divide and conquer charade. This fact is indicated in some of the earlier comments. We rely on the rule of law to eliminate the excesses of racism. Once the rule of law is breached, some form of racism will inevitably take on odious character over time, and the rule of law has been relegated to history in the yankee imperium for quite a while now. The “Trump is a racist” theme meanwhile is similar to “Trump is a Russian mole” based on the elements who are propagating it.

    The definition of a racist is someone who notices racial differences. A vile racist is someone who uses knowledge about racial differences to make rational decisions about where to live, where to educate ones children, and with whom to associate.

  82. Blow of the NYT, citing to no dictionary, defines racism like this: “Racism is simply the belief that race is an inherent and determining factor in a person’s or a people’s character and capabilities, rendering some inferior and others superior.”

    I prefer to consult my dictionary. The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language (1969, 1970, 1971, 1973) tells it like this: “racism: The notion that one’s own ethnic stock is superior.” That begs the question, “What is the meaning of ‘ethnic’?” I return to my dictionary to find that definition to be complex, but it comes down to “of or pertaining to a social group …” As for “stock,” that has many definitions, but the most applicable is, as follows: “7.e. An ethnic group or other major division of mankind.”

    So, it comes down to that racism is a belief or notion that the major division of mankind of which I am an individual specimen is superior to other major divisions of mankind. Thus, the notion that makes me a racist is that Homo sapiens, to which I belong, is superior to other species of Homo that have not survived. So, sure, they haven’t survived … and we who have survived, I suppose, can claim on that basis to be ‘superior’.

    That’s as much sense as I can make of Blow’s ravings … “and from this he makes a living?”

    Actually mike I dont think Caroll is applicable for once when characterizing a leftists talking points, Incredibly its the first time in decades I have seen a leftist correctly describe what “racism ” once meant before they purposely made it vague and all encompassing. The problem for Mr Blow is a lot of time has gone by and now we know beyond a doubt that racism is scientific fact.I mean we always knew it for thousands of years, then world war 2 and the jews sort of insisted if one could prove it they would use all of their genetically derived talent to deny it. But now we have genetics and we know for a fact race is real its exactly what we always said it was and the races are real because they are different and the difference is not merely skin deep its hundreds of thousands of difference from lactose tolerance height aggression or intelligence distribution.

    Now it sounds awful to say once we have this information we then use it to judge people inferiority or inferiority. Its also kind of not true. a scientific understanding of how these differences came about comes with the understanding that they were selected as the best fit for a given environment. The problem Blow and his commie pals have is they dont want kenyans to live like kenyans and arabs like arabs etc they want everyone to live in western societies under a modified western environment. And alas thos most fit for that life are westerners. so strictly speaking we are superior westerners I wouldnt claim to be a superior antelope hunter or better at cousin marriage than an arab. We are all sure everyone in the world be he antelope hunter or commie leftist like mr Blow knows this perfectly well, so who does he think hes kidding. he wants africans in the west so he can use them to outvote his fellow whites and take power.He figures someone else will pay to feed the african and since mr blow has no kids hes not concerned about the future

    The question to ask mr Blow is does he think when he uses Darwin to beat on stupid christians no one notices his stupidity

    I am PROUD to be considered “racist” and profusely acknowledge my “special status” as a “racist” when I am called out on it. The confused, bewildered looks on my accusers’ faces is priceless.
    That being said…

    The term “racism” was invented by communists, and is used to destroy cultures and defuse (and render impotent) those with differing points-of-view on “racial” issues.

    True “racism” is desirable as it merely cements cultural and social bonds that are necessary for a society to function and flourish.

    True “racism” merely denotes commonality of purpose and advancement within each respective racial group.

    Blacks have the NAACP and Congressional Black Caucus, Hispanics have La Raza and Mecha, Jews have the $PLC, ACLU and ADL. These are all “racist” organizations that serve to promote the interests (and political power) of their respective races.

    It is only whites who are castigated and threatened for attempting to show any signs of racial solidarity.

    Let’s look at what us “evil, privileged” whites have done for Western society and the world:

    1. “Civil-rights (for some)” laws (that effectively destroy “freedom of association” for whites, but not for other races) and do not apply to whites–only “people of color” are covered by these so-called “civil-rights (for some)” protections.

    2. “Affirmative action” policies (that push better qualified whites out of positions and jobs that they would ordinarily qualify for) in favor of lesser-qualified minorities. In fact, “affirmative action” policies actually damage those minorities who are quite capable of “making it on their own” because they get “lumped in” with the groups that cannot make it on their own without “help”,

    3. “Contract set-asides” (that are specifically targeted for minorities (that white people are prohibited from bidding on) and immigration policies (that specifically exclude whites, most of who have skills that would benefit the USA) in favor of those from the third-world (with no marketable skills).

    4. Scholarships that specify particular ethnic groups are looked upon favorably by most people, save one–scholarships that are intended for whites only are looked upon as being “racist”, and therefore impermissible and improper in today’s racially-charged climate of “political correctness”.

    NO OTHER RACE (BUT WHITES) HAS (EVER) BENT OVER BACKWARDS to assure that all non-white races receive a “fair shake” in being a part of American life, even to the detriment and social well-being of “our own kind” (whites).

    Whites possess an externalized altruism that no other races possesses. This externalized altruism that “looks out for the other guy” will be the demise of the white race. This altruism needs to be internalized and focused inward, just as other races have done. There is NO SHAME in looking out for one’s own kind.

    “Multiculturalism” and “diversity” are code-words for white genocide.

    I blame those of the “greatest generation” for selling out our birthright with the passage of the “Civil-Rights Acts” of 1957 and 1964, and the “Hart-Celler immigration act of 1965”. To those of the “greatest generation” (who are still alive) thanks for NOTHING…

    Let’s not forget that “freedom of association” (but only affecting the white majority) was eviscerated by the enacting of these clearly unconstitutional acts.

    As whites comprise only 6% of the world population, it is us whites who should be the most protected and cherished of minorities…

  105. The history of America is one in which white people used racism and white supremacy to develop a racial caste system that advantaged them and disadvantaged others.

    The history of absolutely every nation and every tribe involved racism and demographic preference. China has always had Chinese supremacy. Japan has had Japanese supremacy. Ethiopia has always had Ethiopian supremacy. Arab States have always practiced Arab supremacy. French has always practiced French supremacy.

    Racism is simply the belief that race is an inherent and determining factor in a person’s or a people’s character and capabilities, rendering some inferior and others superior. These beliefs are racial prejudices.

    “Racism” and “racist” are simply words that have definitions,

    This isn’t what most people mean by racism. The popular usage of “racism” is just to describe some condemnable unallowable viewpoint related to human ethnicity.

    That’s why he got elected. He was the first major figure to not assume the fetal position when political opponents simply called him racist over and over.

    If there is an “antisemitism” you must ask: “What is PROsemitism?”
    PROsemitism must be a supporter of “semitism”, which really means Judaism (though most Moslems are SEMITIC and most JEWS are NOT). So what are you supporting if you are a PROsemite? Well first of all we must define Judaism:
    Judaism is neither a race or a religion, it is Xenophobic Tribalism.
    A person unduly fearful or contemptuous of that which is foreign, especially of strangers or foreign peoples.
    1. The organization, culture, or beliefs of a tribe.
    2. A strong feeling of identity with and loyalty to one’s tribe or group.
    So right off the get-go you hate all NON-Jews, NON-members of YOUR group(TRIBE).
    You “bundle together” for support and safety, the very definition of Fascism
    THAT means, that if I am not one of the TRIBE, you do not like me.
    Since Jews BRAND all NON-Jews “gentile” automatically denigrating them, to be PROsemitic one must by definition be ANTI-GENTILE.
    They hate all NON-Jews so fundamentally, that they have to SPECIFICALLY name “RIGHTEOUS GENTILES”.
    Those are NON-Jewish HUMANS that went so far out of their way to help/save Jews that the Jews were FORCED to ACKNOWLEDGE the humanity of that specific ‘gentile”. You see, PROsemites do not acknowledge the EQUALITY of spirituality and humanity of “gentiles”
    What the Jewish Rabbis think of JESUS “As for Christianity, there is a dispute among Halachic authorities, but the vast majority consider it idolatry as well. Islam, on the other hand, is not considered idolatry.” Read that last bit again VERY SLOWLY so the “christianzionists” can follow: “ISLAM, on the other hand, is NOT considered idolatry.” ………..

    According to the SPLC & ADL an organization is a “HATE GROUP” if it has
    “beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people”.
    Jews have HATED Egypt for 3,500 years.
    Jews have HATED Babylon for 2,500 years.
    Jews have HATED CHRIST and his followers for 2,000 years.

    David Ben-Gurion, one of the father founders of Israel, described Zionist aims in 1948: “A Christian state should be established [in Lebanon], with its southern border on the Litani river. We will make an alliance with it. When we smash the Arab Legion’s strength and bomb Amman, we will eliminate Transjordan too, and then Syria will fall. If Egypt still dares to fight on, we shall bomb Port Said, Alexandria and Cairo… And in this fashion, we will end the war and settle our forefathers’ account with Egypt, Assyria, and Aram “………….. read that again

The racist Unz commenters seem to want to throw the baby out with the bathwater, but you all know there are black individuals with far more character and intelligence than your neighborhood wigger, and you also know that not all jews are participating in the global conspiracy to do…whatever it is. Whiteness is not worth so much, many white cultures have been rotten and failed. Understand and respect the actual ingredients for prosperity.

    That all being said, to address the article, the public adjudication of someone’s “racism” is a form of thought control, period. Racism is a mindset, not a crime (until it is a crime, and at that point who cares which motivation was used), and to the extent you can imagine what is in Donald Trump’s mind as he moves forward with his agenda, well, he’s been on camera for 40 years explaining his point of view. I guess discard all that and insert your own delusions? New York Times worthy? It’s all politics so hardly worth talking about.

    Anyway, all people spend a lot of time guessing away at our fellow’s motivations and characterizing their behaviors. Racism as a negative mindset is really rather minor. For example, I think a selfish person or a greedy person or a sex-crazed person is actually tougher (Matt Lauer anyone?). I’ve worked with a lot of blacks and Indians who discount my value because I’m a white guy. Whatever. They are tribal fools, and that discounts them, much the same as many of the Unz commenters on this topic.

    There are still many more of us than of people like him . . . there is still time to “nip this thing in the bud”…

    What a deeply ignorant man. And deeply cynical. He doesn’t believe a word he’s saying. But his schtick probably pays well.

    Not surprisingly, he is part Jewish according to his Wiki biography, a fact that suggests that Jewishness, as Jews themselves know and celebrate, is inherited. It is the nature of Jews to take their own personal dissatisfactions with their selves and externalize it, generalize it and project it upon the larger community. In this way they dilute their personal sense of worthlessness and helplessness.

    They would do better to immerse themselves in some project the prosecution of which offers a simple tangible reward. This would do much to distract themselves from their manic projections. Grind lenses as Spinoza did or become a tailor, restore an old car. Performance of these simple but challenging repetitive tasks would do much to dispel Jewish penchant for neurotic troublemaking.

    In general Jews need therapy. Untethered, their minds tend to extravagant fantasies in which they sadistically persecute others. Unable to bear the thought of their own impotence to carry these fantasies to completion, they, in a Judo-like flip of self deception, invert roles, imagining instead that they themselves are the victims of those selfsame impulses operating in others.

    The satisfactions derived from conscientious performance of simple, manual labor would free them from the torment of their own tortured Souls. They need to focus their attention on some tangible something outside of themselves.

  147. Now admittedly I am a guy of low intelligence and lesser means. And I should avoid these types of baited traps, but some of this was beyond the pale. In other words, I am not wedded to a woman’s anger constantly. I am single and alone, so I guess I can afford to be honest. I am a lousy writer. I am not going to be inclined to sight every thing I have ever read for my politically incorrect commentary, nor is there anything self loathing about it. I readily admit there are nuances I don’t mention — but despite appearances, it’s not my intention to write a book. It’s foolish of me to even address the subject given the forum . None of the below denies the self responsibility or reliance.

    I am single and alone, so I guess I an afford to be hones. The definition being sued here is new. I am unfamiliar with Mr Blow or his work. But that definition is the game played by democrats, liberals and a host of so called conservatives.

    The classic and workable definition of racism is related to the use of power to deny another his or her due based on some superficial trait.: skin color, eye color, etc. In most cases it deals with color of skin. It has nothing to do with whether one person prefers another. The use of power deny another his or her just do because of skin tone – period. And no one who actually comprehends what the term means embraces it because it announces that you intend to break the law in your treatment of others. I get the emotional push back, but i find it hard that most people – even here openly desire to violate the constitution.

    I might do well to place this issue in some historical perspective. The idea that whites have not given themselves preferential treatment is just shy of obtuse. Taking colonial and US history prima facie demands acknowledging whole truths about the country. Now I certainly understand that many here think that said preferential treatment is deserved based on white skin. And that because white skin is a sign of high IQ, morality and better toilets or a toilet period. I get it. And better toilets equals high IQ and therefore, the right to put oneself in a superior position, even if that means it requires brute force , violating whatever superior ethical and moral standards get in the way. I get it. But it doesn’t sound intelligent, in my view, because the historical record is pretty clear. deserved or not whites gave themselves and each other preferences and they did so regardless of IQ, moral standing, ethics or the nature of their toilets.

    Every organization was white. Every political office. Free blacks were barred from participation regardless of intelligence, moral standing or IQ. it’s almost embarrassing to read a list of names of organizations — such as the NAACP which from its soundings had people of both colors involved – and generally everyone had a higher degree and many were lawyers. Of course those black members had to attend black schools. Why did qualified blacks attend black schools, because whites denied their access – based on skin color. I just feel silly even contending this level of discourse. I am talking about institutions that matter toward assimilating black people into the greater society. After slavery nothing would have been more important. but false assumptions, misapplying scripture, irrational fears and inability to compete on a fair ground maintained national barriers to keep whites in positions of power. education, finance, business, sciences — result blacks formed their own against all odds managed to build a cadre of all the above to begin a life of establishing communities — in spite of being denied other vital avenues of access — criminal justice, etc.

    Now if the country had said here blacks here’s your own land – fine. But they didn’t. And let’s avoid the back to Africa facade, they weren’t seriously willing to spend the money to do that either. But more importantly, this country was their home and for nearly everyone – the only country they have ever known. They had been here longer than millions and millions of whites with lousy toilets and you know what that means —

    I have don’t know what the IQ requirement is for the Daughters of the American Revolution — they wouldn’t let black women in — I was sure the requirement was soley honorable service during the revolution — white skin it seems ranked above IQ. You are telling me that the black churches and its members actually needed to pass an IQ test to be members of the YMCA — they denied service and entry to blacks. Boy Scouts of America, the US military – all of the academies – good grief, trade organizations, etc

    Really the white population that made everything their own, is going to make a national case of lack of privilege based on events that didn’t really get a start until the 1960’s.
    Civil rights have no effect on “free association”, aside from happenstance. if the country had ensure the same public services in every area of public service to blacks, other words separate but equal in reality — the issue of segregation would have been moot. Though there would have been challenges by said communities that actually would have preferred assimilated circumstance. Civil rights means simply, the rights establish under the constitution in accordance with the Pre-amble’s purpose are equitably available for people of like circumstances. That no treatment be be accorded you that is not afforded your neighbor, regardless of whether or not his tan is even or not.
    Again this feels silly to respond to. The data is just over whelming that most blacks were denied the rights of citizens and there were denied those rights in ways that impacted them negatively in every manner of life. That treatment of barring them from such life as citizens was a violation of their civil rights. Whether it was late arrival by the police to calls for help, denied applying for work, access to public schools, housing, legal equity, judicial abuse — all of which impacted their ability to function as the their best citizen self.

    And let’s be honest, blacks in this country. especially after did slavery did everything imaginable to be part and full citizens. The period immediately after the civil war up through the 1960’s when churches still played a major part in the lives of black citizens was squandered by conservatives. That’s one hundred years of failed assimilation and the networks required to build stable community – that was undercut by no small amount of traditional nonsense about skin color. Let’s face it for all the contentions about IQ, there’s not much in the way of how the country responded to blacks that was indicative of high intelligence or “good common sense” —
    One should realize that up until the 1960, every riot in this country on the matter of color was initiated by whites — and what for — wait for it —

    a black kid went to the beach, a black family moved into the neighborhood, a black person dared say, “no” — the list of trivial supposed encroachments on white’s sensibilities is an endless stream of “huh”. And the south is absolutely correct — it was not only the south. Which mat explain why blacks are not heading to Africa – but they are heading back to the south. Because they discovered that “acting white, was no more appreciated in the anywhere in the country. Now it doesn’t take an IQ of 100 to figure if the country as a whole held these views, it’s an even bet the same pool from which we get our police, our lawyers, our teachers, our political managers, our military officer corps and not etc, are going to bring with them the same attitudes experienced in the general white public mind. All of the false assumptions, fears, and irrational mindings would be in all of the same areas — so whatever blacks had to prove they to rove against the backwash of general stupidity , regardless of IQ. Even the sciences were on this bandwagon and today that IQ gambit is in full swing to justify what was essentially discrimination. I guess that nonsense gets overly tiresome and by 1950’s the late 1960’s — a kind of general “fed-up” attitude and what is referred to as the “uppity so and so” became par for the course of excuse to treat blacks in violation of the law.

    Note: in all of this, I would be a false if I did not recognize that blacks too harbor no small of amount of false narratives” about how they were perceived . Mutual self fulfilling prophecies certainly played out based on mutual false perceptions.

    But the power is always on the side of whites. trying to cut through a national narrative when you are outnumbered more than 2:1 or more is a very tough slog. In the forefront to this nonsense of course whites turned to the police, to enforce not only law, but white sensibilities. And the result is on scale has been the “attitude” card as excuse for breaking the law. And when we talk about this attitude we are talking about a tool every single white could grasp for cause of offense. I have not even discussed the played women offended — white men coming to the rescue. You do realize that in both wars I and II, black men fought and died for the call of their country – and upon return arrived home to the very same nonsense they went to fight against. They also discovered that whites exported their faux or exaggerated views about black negatives to Japan and every country that would embrace them. The country even went so far as to discourage awarding black men honors for fear they would come home as equals and have to be put in their place. In WWI, it was the US air corps who denied a black pilot who has been fighting the Germans longer than the US sent the first tittle of aide. Why the denial — because of his color — despite his number of successful enemy kills. Nothing like a higher IQ to make such arbitrary choices. FDR’s new deal, take a look at how that new deal was distributed in New York City. Have a listen at Mayor La Guardia’s speech to the black churches in his community, where he openly states they wouldn’t let him do it.
    I just don’t know how redress that a national level of discrimination based on skin color we may chagrin the idea of national redress, but history is a demanding sole, — the US redressed the Japanese and even rebuilt countries that were our enemies —. Despite whatever contentions there are about black IQ, one doesn’t need a high IQ to see hypocrisy. Doesn’t really matter what one’s IQ is — the constitution demands equity.

    Affirmative action as we know it is not at all what affirmative action was initially introduced or intended to accomplish. i wonder who convoluted it, and changed it up. It certainly was mot those powerless , IQ challenged blacks. It was the southern block in an attempt to block it’s passage along with nonsoutherners. They made it a point to add women and and instead of blocking the measure ensured its passage. Of course, we can’t be redressing a history of discrimination against blacks without including white women. The result, more than 60% of the affirmative action policies have benefited white women. So when whites have conniption fits about the policy, the biggest beneficiaries are the white women it’s been by 60% plus to whites. “Wanna” complain about the policy castigating blacks is the wrong direction. And the civil service sectors knows this better than anyone, including the police who have used this policy to further denigrate blacks as worthy of extra harsh treatment. The standards were changed not to accommodate blacks, but women, and in this case — white women. eager to make sure their fellow whites passed, whites lowered standards, especially the physical requirements. There’s nothing landmark about the Baake case. Sadly, it’s the same ol’ manipulative subversion of a claim of redress. First it ignores that blacks were denied access to this institution – despite making the grade. But to conclude that policy was a hamper to any white person is farcical considering the population. And it would be interesting to sift through the records and gather the numbers across the country of how many whites benefited from “legacy” entrances despite not making the grade or having the “right IQ”.

    Second, it ignores that whites have granted themselves al manner of exceptions from competition and fairplay by manipulating the systems or by outright power plays. I still get a laugh that AG Sessions didn’t threaten an attorney based on some presumption about how he talked to a white women — laugh. I have no doubt that this ethic was standard for whites around the country a popular shield for police stops, — some white woman had been raped and the black guys looked like the suspect. An old belief pre-civil war – north and south. This is a numbers game to no small extent. If i shout fire and twenty other shout no fire. It’s more than likely that the truth will be understood as — no fire. Then upon seeing the burned down house twenty people shout I set the fire, my lone voice is hardly going to register. The end being of course not only was there no fire, but if there was I must have set it. Many of you complain that the media engages in this kind tactic and I agree they do. I would submit that they engaged in this level of discourse very astutely in advocating for white women plight, a plight that wasn’t much of a plight to begin with. Certainly not one of much oppression, but instead the result of several million years or 250,000 plus years of a developing social contract. A contract by which men carried a large portion of the heavy lifting for and to the stead of women and the resulting children to benefit in a family dynamic.
    The affirmative action and special contracts, scholarships, etc status were intended to be redress for the preferential treatment whites gave each other by blocking out two groups as targets: african Americans and native Americans. Buy whites have managed to sabotage that redress and harbor gains for themselves — that’s shock. So at a time when church influence was fading and whites had hoarded family support systems for which blacks also contributed tax dollars, the decision was made to prop up white women, despite already being deeply connected and interwoven into the society — certainly well ahead of blacks – we undercut the head of household most in need of redress — that was smart — Well smart if you want to complain about black family disintegration under the strain of financial stress. And the never incessant hand wringing about crime and unwed mothers – neither which I approve. But I am not going to pretend the correlation between stable income and those dynamics are null and void. so if one wants to jump up and down about the ills of affirmative action – it’s best to point fingers to the beneficiaries — white women and other associated as whites – hispanics and asians —

    Nothing in the historical record suggests that whites are innately or uniquely altruistic. If anything the records indicates just the opposite. They are more than eager and willing to make others bend over to suit that rather large chocker block pound of lead feather chip on their shoulder, that upon the slightest nudge sends whites into fits of apoplectic fits of offense or endless justifications for doing another in financially, personally, professionally, or literally. As for civil rights, I have to admit that whites didn’t give blacks anything — but they restored what they had wrongfully denied them as citizens. it is long past time to stop behaving as though doing the right thing is doing a favor it’s not. It’s the right thing. This is how altruistic whites are. At the end of the civil war with millions of eager freed citizens to get work — whites imported millions of noncitizens, most skilless . . .
    Researcher Hooper makes a very solid case for where we get our AIDS from – polio research. In a twisted manipulation of the facts, white researchers of the medical establishment proclaimed no – it’s from africans eating monkey tissue. And they pinpoint the location — never-mind they could not identify a single AIDS case for the era they claim it arrived before the polio researchers began using monkey kidneys. Even I am astounded at the lengths whites will go to disclaim ownership for anything that is not in some manner nobel and good. Clearly the change of SIV into HIV occurred in the 1950’s. Claiming that SIV is newly discovered source in Kinshasa – when it has been known for more than fifty years is just gosh and worse. Using small pox to deliberately poison native americans can hardly be considered altruistic — early case of biological warfare. At no time in the historical record can altruism be noted as uniquely white. In the case of blacks, there isn’t much on record of them having full scale riots because some whit kid showed up in the neighborhood or some family moved in next door. There’s scant a record of black physicians providing substandard care to whites or churches turning out whites – I would that the case could be made that whites are altruistic at all towards other colors innately. But it seems that the case is getting more of something for giving less. I remember that hair pulling and gnashing of teeth of the last executive indicated he wanted to change relations in the middle east to something less destructive. One of the few policies I thought made sense — We invaded iraq without an iota of justification — seems not just altruistic, but to amelierate the error — but low on the suggestion the sky is falling. iraq collapsed while we occupied the territory, but the blame was to the last executive who wanted us out of there , but not for all of the “sky is falling”. But today on this site, it’s bemoaning our presence in the region — in a spirit of fairness, one would think the altrusitic move is to acknowledge out was what was needed, but instead, we hear the blame game — altruism at its finest. No I did not support or vote for the previous admin. look, nearly every major issue that has negatively impacted the US has been the advocacy of whites:

    1. segregation
    2. dumping school prayer
    3.betraying those fighting in Vietnam
    4. abandoning Vietnam
    5. popularizing pornographic material
    6. free love
    7. equating the lives and history of blacks with that of white women
    8.killing children in the womb
    9. same relational behavior as normal and now equal to heterosexual unions – including marriage
    10. catering to immigrants — a long history before 1963 —
    11. every single financial crisis — I have certainly heard my share of altrusism how it’s all blacks fault for buying homes they couldn’t afford — hardly a skim of the issue.
    12. Two hastily poorly constructed cases for war and managed even worse — and as usual two blacks ever demonstrating loyalty to cause get the shrift at the end — despite the fact that without Gen/Sec Powell’s endorsement, that case would have been harder to make. If not for that war — the next better president —
    12. despite holding nearly all positions of power and wealth — near heart attacks over statues of men who would be traitors if not for their skin color.
    13. the almost complete collapse of mainstream faiths over a practice condemned in the bible.
    I am unclear how blaming the least involved in decision making for all that ails whites is altruistic — sounds mendacious to me.

    We as a nation are altruistic, but that s the result of an ethos most common from our biblical roots. And there are various cultures that practiced altruism, doubtful. that skin color had much to with it.
