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.

What actually happened in Ferguson? God only knows. Of course we are hearing from talking heads with bargain-basement IQs that a policeman, from racial motives, shot an unarmed black kid because he refused to stop walking in the street. Did it happen? Possibly. I wasn’t there. But the story smells.

Reflect: Every white cop short of the orbit of Neptune knows that if he shoots a black, he faces dismemberment in the media, loss of job and pension, probable criminal charges locally by a publicity-seeking prosecutor, a well-funded civil suit that he can’t afford filed by surviving family members, and trumped-up federal civil-rights charges from an attorney general who doesn’t like whites.

All this because he wants to shoot a black kid for jaywalking?

But let us ignore mere totalitarian fascism on the march. To this we are inured. Let us focus instead on the disastrous failure of racial policy. For over half a century we have had many Fergusons, mini-Fergusons, mega-Fergusons (Los Angles, among many others), and the Knockout Game ( micro-Fergusons). We will have more, and worse. Racial hostility is not subsiding. The races are not assimilating. If they were going to, they would have. The danger is that one of the serial Fergusons could go parallel.

The country could blow.

The media, Democrats, and race industry stoke the fires by telling blacks that they are victims, and some seem actually to be looking for a fight. Jesse Jackson is quoted as threatening, “There is a Ferguson near you.” True. Wherever blacks and whites come into contact, there is trouble.

With the encouragement of the various Jesses, blacks could make a bad miscalculation. Angry, poorly educated, and living in concentrations that make them seem more numerous than they are, they may miss some important points. They are only thirteen percent of America. Food does not come from Safeway, but from remote farms owned by whites in truck driven by whites. If Jesse and Al and the Black Panthers got their race war, blacks would lose it hugely. The country would not recover.

I doubt that our televised commentators have any idea what they are dealing with. Nor do academics. Whites with university educations, who read five books at once, who have never been in a police car, cannot know who the rioters are, cannot imagine how the world seems to them. Black physicists d not loot shoe stores. Those who do tend strongly to be functionally illiterate. The rest have probably never read a book in their lives. They live in a mental world unknown to most whites. They will never live amicably with white cops.

The feds have turned police into low-brow SS, but racial conflict would exist even if this weren’t true. As long as white policemen work in black neighborhoods, Fergusons will continue.

White cops tend to be from the lower middle class, often former military, with the accompanying values. Theirs is a conventional morality of obedience to the law, birth within wedlock, mowing the lawn, neat clothes, making sure the kids do their homework, orderliness, and avoidance of obscenity in mixed company. They are quietly but intensely contemptuous of the blacks of the deep city, whom they see as slovenly, criminal, shiftless, parasitic, and violent.

Don’t write me email about stereotypes etc. I’m telling you what a great many white policemen (I believe I could safely say nearly all) think. What they think and what they see governs their behavior, not whether you or I agree with it.

Meanwhile the blacks see white policemen as hostile occupiers, much as Parisians in 1943 saw their Wehrmacht occupiers. White cops seem agents of an alien and hostile race, always pushing them around. Speaking as one who has spent many, many nights patrolling with cops in black regions, I know well why the blacks feel this way:

“Hey, you! Yeah, you, with the beer in your hand. Pour it out. You can’t drink in public. I said pour…it…out.”

The obvious, inexpensive, simple, practical solution would be to have only black police in black neighborhoods, and white in white. This wouldn’t end shootings because it wouldn’t end crime, but it would end the consequent racial riots, looting, and burned cities. I suggested this when I was police writer for the Washington Times, but was told that it ran against the policy of compulsory integration. Black cops didn’t like the idea because it would leave them in the most dangerous jurisdictions.

We need to realize, but will not, that blacks are a separate people, self-aware and cohesive. They have their own dialect, music, and modes of dress, which they value. They name their kids LaToya and Keeshawn instead of Robert and Carol because they want to maintain a distance from whites.

The races spring from utterly different cultures. Compulsory integration is thus a form of social imperialism in which whites try to force blacks to conform to European norms. Blacks have no historical connection at all to Greece, Rome, the Old Testament Hebrews, Christianity, the Middle Ages, the Enlightenment, Industrial Revolution, to Newton, LaGrange, or Galois, to the philosophic tradition of Thales, Aquinas, Schopenhauer, or Hegel. Nor do Eurowhites have roots in Africa. No commonality exists.

We talk multiculturism, but try to imose a monoculture—ours—on blacks. Why? Why in school should we insist that blacks study things of no interest to them? It is reminiscent of policies aimed at stripping American Indians of their languages and traditions.

On the other hand, I as a white man have little enthusiasm for studying Shaka Zulu, the Great Zimbabwe, or African religions. Would not all be happier with their own schools in which they could maintain their own culture?

“Separate but equal” is in bad odor as a governing philosophy. It seems to be the only thing that works. If voluntary, wherein lies the evil? Less contact means less conflict.

ORDER IT NOW

Is there any evidence that blacks want to associate with whites? Or vice versa? In the universities, do blacks not clamor for black-only dormitories, black-only fraternities, and Black Studies? And what is wrong with this? Why should blacks not associate with whom they choose? And why should not whites?

Almost always, when the races do not have to mingle, they don’t. In Washington, blacks fleeing the crime of the city go to the heavily-black Prince George’s County, whites to Arlington, Fairfax, and Bethesda. Within Arlington, blacks cluster together in mini-barrios. So what? It’s their business.

Note that the togetherheid pushed endlessly on us is almost entirely rhetorical, preached by people who mean that others should practice it. I lived for years in the city with many liberal, racially correct friends. They spent all their time with other whites, and the restaurants and bars they patronized seldom had more than a token black, if that.

Ethnic mixing doesn’t work, gang. Not Moslems and Parisians, Irish Catholics and Protestants, Shias and Sunnis, Indonesians and Chinese, nor even New Yorkers and Alabamans. We think it should work, insist that it will, punish those who observe that it doesn’t. Yet still it doesn’t work. The greater the difference between groups, the less well it works. If we realized this, and let people do as they choose, the country would be much better off.

    Blacks and whites in particular are just so radically different from each other. The only time they integrate is in highly regimented settings, like the military or NFL. Or Walmart. Not surprisingly, we require a huge national security state to coerce everybody into getting along. Otherwise these two racial groups would separate instantly. Actually, that is what they do wherever and whenever they are allowed.

    Not content to stop with the radical social experimentation of throwing blacks and whites into the same society, we’ve flipped this racial “balance” by importing mestizos and indigenous who now actually outnumber blacks. And increasing numbers of Arab Muslims (because one Semitic tribe with lots of grudges wasn’t enough). And of course we couldn’t stop there, so now we get … African Muslims. We’re in the realm of pure insanity, like putting polar bears and crocodiles together just to see what happens.

    I believe it will take some period, probably brief, of civil conflict. As Reed points out, blacks don’t seem to be aware of the fact that they are wholly dependent upon white society for survival. Thus, once interracial conflict flares into consistent violence, black “combat forces” lack any adequate line of supply — to use a term from military strategy. After this period of brush-fire scrimmages, black culture will retreat into what insularity it is provided. I would suspect some modified form of self-governance within designated reservations, as was done with the Amerinds.

    But, all of the above is a “maybe”. Reed points out that multiculturalism struggles mightily to continue the unresolvable conflict by asserting that the conflict is resolvable. Perhaps there exists some unrecognized group that benefits from multiculturalism and its perpetuation? Perhaps they grow ever-more wealthy as a product of it? Or, perhaps there are overlapping subgroups of multiculturalism that benefit sufficiently individually that multiculturalism itself takes on a monolithic appearance?

  4. @The Anti-Gnostic

    I believe you are incorrect, Mr. Agnostic. Some ethnic mixing does work — viz. the deployment of the invading hispanic hordes in the USA. Well, I suppose one could say it works for now. Sometimes things changes when one groups achieves demographic dominance by virtue of unrestrained reproductive success. Natural selection is always at work.

    Maybe. But the variable is Anglo’s aren’t Iberians. And not even Hispanics are “Hispanic.” Their societies remain extremely stratified after 400 years. The current wave is nothing less than the hidalgo class shoving their excess indio/mixed peasantry northward.

    No, its not going to “blow”. The leftists are winning and the conservative whites don’t want to fight but run away. So as long as they can run, the CW’s aren’t going to fight.

    So, no the USA isn’t going to “blow”. In any case once the CW’s run out of room to Run, the Leftists will be in total control.

    Sometimes ethnic mixing works and sometimes it doesn’t. Ethnic strife is real, but so is the melting pot. A lot of us white Americans no longer even know which country our ancestors came from, or which church they went to, let alone care. Odds are good that the descendants of at least some recognizable ethnic groups will be pan ethnics who aren’t too caught up in 21st century strife.

  8. rod1963 says:

    We are no longer a melting pot, even when that metaphor was useful it only applied to whites. Not blacks, not Asians, Muslims or lower class Hispanics. These people keep their culture and do not see themselves as Americans, this goes doubly for blacks who want no part of white society at all.

    As for blowing, the country will and it will probably be a economic collapse given how sick and crooked our economy has become. It almost collapsed when the real-estate bubble burst in late 2007 early 2008 and was only saved by TARP and continual QE’s. Problem is, Wall Street has blown several more mega bubbles and we can’t backstop them when they pop. Guess what happens to that massive welfare state and pension system the Feds and states have erected – they go poof.

    Then you’ll watch as the blacks go on a murder and looting rampage like nothing else – until they hit the Hispanic and conservative white neighborhoods – then it will be open season on the Trayvons of the world.

    Also, I read of many many fatal shootings across the country at the hands of the police, but I honestly cannot recall very many instances where officers in consequence faced “dismemberment in the media, loss of job and pension, probable criminal charges locally by a publicity-seeking prosecutor, a well-funded civil suit that he can’t afford filed by surviving family members, and trumped-up federal civil-rights charges”. In most cases, the officers involved are exonerated. There may be civil suits, but damages are largely covered by the taxpayers.

Contrary to what he claims, police in reality get away with just about anything, and blacks are no longer the only victims. Like the bumper sticker says, “Police brutality. It’s Not just for black people anymore.” In this case, the black population of Ferguson has decided to say they have had enough of police violence and murder. Someday white people will have had enough and say the same thing. From what I have seen, Rand Paul is the only one who seems to understand the real situation and has the courage to say anything.

    Not to drift too far afield but: I believe Immanuel Kant would consider this assertion to be synthetic a priori inasmuch as no empirical judgment can be known analytically.

    It should be obvious that there’s a de facto alliance between the looters at the top and the looters at the bottom.Western countries (i.e., the American Empire since 1945) are controlled by a money-centered ruling elites who are hostile to the historic West. Legitimizing ideology of current regime is “progressivism” (i.e., anti-white, anti-Western banksterist secular hedonist consumerism) or (put another way) neoliberal globalist economics fused with false radical egalitarian “cultural marxism.” In effect, “cultural marxism” is identity politics lifestyle consumerism that serves to mask growing overall inequality within the advanced capitalist economies and erase the remnants of traditional Western culture.

  15. KenH says:

    “They name their kids LaToya and Keeshawn instead of Robert and Carol because they want to maintain a distance from whites.”

    If only that were true, but blacks tend to follow whites everywhere. As soon as they get a little money they move to a white neighborhood and send their kids to white schools. Once the black population starts increasing then the trouble starts. Ferguson, MO used to by majority white and peaceful, but his now majority black and crime ridden.

    Blacks can’t crash white living space then arrogantly defy the community’s values (as they so often do) and not expect some blowback from whites, police or regular citizens. Of course, whites who don’t take kindly to having their communities turned into crime filled black ghettos are derided as “racist”.

    Oh Fred, there you go again, ideology trumping facts. While you’d clearly like to believe that cops face such penalties, reality just doesn’t bear it out.

    While of course there is no central location for data on how many cops gets fired in a year, there are innumerable instances one can find were police have committed shocking crimes with not a day of pension lost.

    We’re talking real crimes here, Fred. Assaulting handcuffed prisoners. Pointing guns at jaywalkers. Armed robbery. Rape. Yes, good old fashioned “threaten her with arrest, put in the back of the squad car, spread open her legs and rape her” kind of crime.

    And of course, just outright murder. But in nearly none of these cases is the cop given anything but a rubber stamp approval for his actions and a bonus check to make up for his time while suspended pending investigation.

    I guess you’re too dumb to recognize the difference between the concepts of “wartime” and “peacetime.” The current ruling elites (aided by their leftist lackeys) are striving to create wartime conditions in what most people think is peacetime-at least domestically. I assume they’re doing this because it aids them in their quest for complete control from the center.

I don’t see segregation coming back except by economic forces, besides like all counter cultures they probably don’t want acceptance but rather dominence.

    Ethnic mixing works, when you have majority Anglo-European ethnics who enact civil rights laws backed by a nuclear-armed bureaucracy. Or when you have a company town with white coal company executives running the whole place, right down to the social scene and entertainments, like Buxton, Iowa. Actually, Buxton was a black monoculture.

    How’s multiculturalism working out in the Middle East and Africa? Somebody mentioned Europe which, according to universalist/exceptionalist Americans, should just be one generic blob of Europeans speaking Esperanto. But Europeans remain nationalist and segregated into numerous polities. It’s a good thing they have soccer and the US military, or they’d be starting another Continental war. They probably will any way, and Arab and African Muslims will be on big, leaky boats headed in the other direction.

    If ethnic mixing is so natural and groovy, how come it needs thousands of laws and regulations and a huge central government to enforce it?

  29. We live in a world in which the expectation is equality of results irrespective of the facts related to genetics, effort, or behavior in general (http://www.mindingthecampus.com/2014/07/an-amazing-diversity-plan-at-madison/). While this perspective is pushed by progressives and occasionally decried by conservatives, it does seem to be the regnant belief among opinion makers. While I agree that freedom of association ought to be a right (call it segregation if you must), the law disagrees in many cases and the trend is towards less freedom, not more. Nevertheless, even if we could go back to a state where this type of freedom of association existed, what would that solve? How long would it last? Would blacks suddenly become contented despite the fact that crime and unemployment rates in predominantly black areas aren’t improving? Are blacks in Detroit happier than blacks in more integrated cities? Would the media ignore the various gaps between the races that persist? Education programs, schools and the like can and have been created to cater to the alleged academic interests of blacks (e.g., African American Studies). When blacks graduate and can’t get a job, will they be satisfied? Will the media be satisfied? Will a large number of black billionaire entrepreneurs create jobs specifically for backs who have studied the things that most interest them? Will white billionaires or entrepreneurs? If these companies do exist, will they also hire whites? If they hire whites, will they mandate that whites cannot rise above blacks in their positions?

    The notion that “racial riots, looting and burned cities” would end if black neighborhoods were exclusively policed by black cops is wishful thinking run amok. This is of a type similar to that which posited that electing a black president would once and for all prove that the U.S. has set aside it’s allegedly racist ways and prevent allegations that racism was preventing blacks from reaching their full potential or causing blacks to be harmed in various ways. I’m fairly confident that this has not come to pass.

    As to whether the police in general have become overly-militarized, too quick to react with excessive force and the like, are valid questions that ought to be dispassionately evaluated. I’m not sure case provides the proper context in which to engage in this sort of analysis, however. The facts have not been determined definitively and judgment should be reserved, but it is not and this should not come as a surprise. Even after all of the autopsies have been performed and the witnesses vetted, will opinions change? If the evidence contradicts the perceptions and beliefs of those who stand against the police in this case, will they change their mind?

    This brings us to “monoculture” imposition (aka the need for assimilation). Part of the point of cultural assimilation is to inculcate the societal and cultural lessons that provide a basis for succeeding in a particular society as well as to create community and cultural support for the mores and folkways of a society. These can change over time, but ideally by natural forces and not government-impoosed sanctions. If we have a sub-culture who, to pick a hypothetical example, doesn’t believe in the rule of law, then I’m not confident that there is a way to have a society of any kind, including a bifurcated one. That which happens in Detroit, New Orleans, D.C. and Ferguson will cause ripples and waves that are noticed, commented upon, protested and even legislated.

    Fred mentions ethic mixing doesn’t work and this may be the case, but because people aren’t equal, “separate but equal” won’t work unless we agree that equal means equality of opportunity and not outcome. This type of agreement can only occur when assimilation has taken place and that’s just been ruled that out as a possibility.

  30. The Anti-Gnostic @5 overstates the Whiteness of the Mexican middle class and even the upper class to some extent. Unless their ancestors were all recent immigrants, most “Whites” in Mexico have some Amerindian admixture.

    I wouldn’t deny, however, that the upper classes are “Whiter” on average. But remember that Amerindian ancestry becomes invisible very quickly. Lots of Castizos (75% Euro 25% Indio) can pass as exotic Mediterraneans, and that results from only two generations of intermarriage! Beyond that point they pretty much look White.

    Negro DNA is much more dominant and problematic. Even the colonial Spaniards who designed the caste system without any knowledge of genetics noticed this:

    The overall themes that emerge in these paintings are the “supremacy of the Spaniards,” the possibility that Indians could become Spaniards through miscegenation with Spaniards and the “regression to an earlier moment of racial development” that mixing with Blacks would cause to Spaniards. These series generally depict the descendants of Indians becoming Spanish after three generations of intermarriage with Spaniards (usually the, “De español y castiza, español” painting).[23]

    In contrast, mixtures with Blacks, both by Indians and Spaniards, led to a bewildering number of combinations, with “fanciful terms” to describe them. Instead of leading to a new racial type or equilibrium, they led to apparent disorder. Terms such as the above-mentioned tente en el aire and no te entiendo (“I don’t understand you”)—and others based on terms used for animals: mulato (mule) and lobo (wolf), chino (derived from cochino meaning “pig”)[21]—reflect the fear and mistrust that Spanish officials, society and those who commissioned these paintings saw these new racial types.[23]

    If you think Apple and Google became the two most valuable companies in the world by “marketing silly little apps” then the only rational conclusion is that you are hopelessly out of touch with reality. These are two world-changing corporations.

    By the way, Apple’s charismatic leader Steve Jobs was the biological son of a syrian muslim immigrant. His company has the best diversity record in Silicon Valley with blacks and hispanics constituting 7% each of its tech/engineering workforce. Yes that is below their share of the total population but well above the Silicon Valley average. Whites at around 50-55% (compared to 65% of the total population) are also underrepresented in SV. Asians on the other hand are very heavily over-represented, at 7 to 8 times their percentage of the american population. And among those classified as whites, jews are way over-represented. So are iranians. While irish americans and german americans, two of the largest european ethnicities in the US, are heavily under-represented.

    Are you saying Uber is not going to change the world? Srsly?

    What about Pets.com? That’s still a solid investment, right? Those fellows at Merrill Lynch seemed very high on it when I bought some back in 2000.

    Yeah, I heard that at a TED talk once!

    Meanwhile the blacks see white policemen as hostile occupiers, much as Parisians in 1943 saw their Wehrmacht occupiers.

    Or, to use a much more current, relevant, ongoing, and un-cowardly example: much as Palestinians in 2014 see their Jewish occupiers/murderers/bombers/artillerists/slaughterers.

    The obvious, inexpensive, simple, practical solution would be to have only black police in black neighborhoods, and white in white. This wouldn’t end shootings because it wouldn’t end crime, but it would end the consequent racial riots, looting, and burned cities. I suggested this when I was police writer for the Washington Times, but was told that it ran against the policy of compulsory integration. Black cops didn’t like the idea because it would leave them in the most dangerous jurisdictions.

    Where are you going to get these black cops? Pluto? Utopia? Nope. From the same population you describe in this article, the ones who have made violent crime into their national pastime. I’ll spell it out: there aren’t enough blacks up to the job of policing to fill all the ghetto cop positions. We could lower the standards to the point blacks in numbers could do the job, resulting in a police force little better than the black gangs they’d be policing (or merging with, depending on how much reality you like in your assessment). Or we could just go with the few good black cops we could find, throwing them into the black ghetto meat grinder, and watch black ghettos turn into 100% no-go zones. We’d have the libs crowing twice as loudly about the black pathology (with all the usual knock-on consequences for white wallets) as usual in short order.

    On the whole, though, I see what you’re doing here Fred, and I commend it. We really need to push this leftist-style critique of failed leftist integration. And yes, this article is how it’s done.

    I believe it will take some period, probably brief, of civil conflict. As Reed points out, blacks don’t seem to be aware of the fact that they are wholly dependent upon white society for survival.

    They’re probably as aware as Jews are of same. Well, the leadership caste is, anyway. All but the dumbest blacks can sort it out. But, like Jews, they suspect that there will be an obvious sea change if their game stops working. And they’re probably right. At the moment, and for decades, whites have barely grumbled about the situation, and even then only far from the “legitimate” and “respectable” venues.

    They’re aware, they just don’t think whitey’s anywhere near canceling any checks.

    Homogeneous Europe always was and still is such a peaceful paradise. Just look at all white Ukraine today. Or Yugoslavia a couple decades ago. Or all of Europe during WWI & WWII. And so on throughout history. Europe without non-whites = Utopia.

    Right?

    So, the solution is to double down on the diversity that caused these conflicts (Ukraine? Check. Yugoslavia? BIG check. Austria-Hungary? HUGE check.), and go for not just ethnic diversity, as in Russified Ukrainians/Ukrainified Russias vs Western Ukrainians, or as in Croat vs. Serb vs. Kosovar vs. Whatever else, but also the really obvious, “your skin is your uniform” racial diversity of white, black, yellow, brown, etc.
    Gotcha. Thanks, brilliant comment.

    Rape. Yes, good old fashioned “threaten her with arrest, put in the back of the squad car, spread open her legs and rape her” kind of crime.

    Yes, black and brown cops are big on that kind of thing.

    I used to be a huge Fred Reed fan. I like his contrarianism a lot. The constant, low level racism of his screeds is just too much for me anymore.

    Good. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

    The Egyptians weren’t pure sub-Saharan Africans. Moreover, the Bible story of enslavement in Egypt and exodus is just a story. There is not much historical or archaeological evidence that supports the events as depicted.

    Galios and LaGrange were mathematicians whose work is still relevant: at least to physicists, engineers, and mathematicians.
