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 high genetic intelligence, studiousness, a tendency toward intellectual exploration, the capacity to organize, sustained hard work, and conscientiousness. There is a reason why whites design Mars landers and black athletes do not.

To make this point clearly (See? It is my tendency toward intellectual exploration), let us consider the following questions:

How many of the black athletes, or black radicals at Missouri, or anywhere, have any business being at a university? How many have IQs below ninety? How many are way below? How many are studying real subjects, such as chemistry, languages, philosophy, literature, or history—as distinct from subjects for the enfeebled, Black Studies, Sociology, Education, and Breathing for Credit?

How many of the jocks can read? In many universities the black athletes are kept in special dorms and get high grades for courses they never attend and can’t spell. Is that happening in Missouri? Can we see their SATs? No one, I promise, will want to check.

Stray thought: If universities accepted only those with intelligence and interest, the noise level would drop appreciably. I am for it.

But the antics at Missouri are only one instance of a far larger disease. Daily the country ties itself in knots to keep blacks happy, which is impossible—to placate them, to soothe their disturbances, give them everything they want but can’t or won’t earn. Nothing satisfies them. They shut down political meetings, loot shoe stores, burn cities. We back away. Always we back away.

We give and give and give—Head Start, Section Eight housing, AFDC, Obamaphones, medical care, free rides at university. If they can’t pass a test, we abolish the test and apologize, apologize, apologize. Do they want to burn Baltimore? We back away, give them space, for they are troubled youth. And we apologize. It never stops.

Nobody ever, ever, tells them “No.” Might this be called Black Privilege?

As I read on Drudge, the national thermometer, the unending daily demands by blacks for this, for that, for the other thing, I would say, if I were rude–I emphatically am not rude–“Try contributing instead of demanding. I mean, beyond blues, basketball, and arson. Remember, we the white privileged invented both cities and matches. And virtually everything else that allows you to complain in comfort.”

One day—one day, maybe—we will have to admit that the racial thing isn’t working, and that it isn’t going to work. Hostility worsens. It will continue to worsen. As the white middle class loses economic ground and standards of living fall, anger will grow among the newly impoverished. The constant racial attacks on whites will continue. Why would they stop? As automation advances, jobs will become scarcer than they are now, which is too scarce, and for every job a black might do there will be better qualified whites and, increasingly, Latinos. And—this is the killer—blacks are not improving academically, because, as has become obvious, they cannot. If they can, why don’t they?

None of this will affect the talking heads who tell us how we should think—not for a while—because they are well paid and comfortable inside the Beltway, or in Manhattan. The bubble heads and babble blondes will chatter with vapid self-satisfaction of White Guilt, and speak in Georgetown cocktail parties with articulate and composed blacks, the only kind they know.

White Guilt, indeed. It is impossible to be guilty of something you haven’t done, however much you may want to, but this is a logical matter, and does not apply to babble blondes.

Remember, though: Cancer doesn’t go away because you pretend it isn’t there.

At some point—maybe at some point—we will have to admit that we are trying to mix the immiscible and assimilate the inassimilable. If we were dealing with Irishmen, Chinese, Italians, Germans, or Russians, mixing would work after a generation or two, or much sooner. But blacks don’t want to assimilate to white European culture and lack the capacity to do so. Whites do not want them to. The talking heads talk, but associate only with Oreos. They do not go near black ‘hoods. They know better.

We can destroy the universities to please blacks, and we can force integration, but the former won’t accomplish anything else, and people will resegregate if governmental pressure eases. To a great extent they already have. No matter what we do, the intractable urban Bantustans will remain, vast, bleak, hermetically isolated from the dominant culture except through television. Newark, Trenton, Camden, Philadelphia, Detroit, Baltimore, and all the many others. These are forever.

So—the horrible, looming question—what now? We all urge education, because you cannot be charged with racism for favoring it. Yet we all seem to understand that it isn’t going to work. If it were going to, it would have. Every year the deploring classes deplore the unshrinking disparity in test score. They talk endlessly of racism. Yet the politically correct never suggest anything that would require blacks to perform. Nor do blacks. They never ask for thicker textbooks with bigger words and smaller pictures. Books aren’t their thing, as we say.

The one thought that unites the entire country is the recognition that it isn’t going to work.

Well, we can go on as now, and probably will, until there is an explosion, a race war of sorts, or continue the slow subsidence into—what?

ORDER IT NOW

The idea of a racial war is regarded as a sign of rightist dementia by those with Appropriate Values, the talking heads and academia and related riffraff. But if you look at the Fergusons and Baltimores, and ask what would happen if one day whites did not back away as the stores burned, if they ever fought back against the Knock-Out Game—you can see that something very close to a race war is possible. And after–what?

People inside the Beltway have little idea of circumstances in the rest of the country. Note how surprised they were by Trump. A lot of people in that great unknown America are angry. A lot of whites outside the effeminate states are saying of racial conflagration, “Bring it on.” Not a good idea, you say. True, not a good idea at all. But what has that got to do with it?

Perhaps the best of the possibly possible solutions is de facto, tacitly encouraged, mutually accepted segregation wherever practical—universities, schools, police forces, maybe the military, and housing. The races have little in common and utterly different cultural backgrounds. England isn’t Africa (well, it pretty much is these days, but it wasn’t.) For the most part segregation would not have to be forced, but just allowed.

And then maybe we could have our universities back.

  1. For the most part segregation would not have to be forced, but just allowed.

    Wherever integration isn’t forced, it does not exist. Prisons? As segregated as Alabama in the 1920’s. Church? Like Mississippi in the 1940’s. Graduate classes in engineering? Like Arkansas in the 1930’s but with lots of orientals. In our neighborhoods there is a brief moment of integration where a neighborhood goes from 20% negro to 100% negro and 80% of the white homeowners either lose their life savings or default on their mortgage. Once it goes black, it can never go back..

    But Fred, you know as well as I that the idea has been to import enough Mexicans to serve as a buffer against the negroes that their social pathologies no longer effect the goodwhites. Mexicans, of course, have no interest in fawning behavior and feigning interest in whatever the negroes are babbling about. Look how they’ve racially cleansed LA. And they’re off to a good start in Detroit already – if we would just pass amnesty they will finish the job.

  2. There should be a systematic deportation for blacks to be repatriated back to Africa. The US should set up an area for them in Africa and fund it for a decade, after that, they are on their own – no more cries of racism and White privilege will no longer be a concern for them. They will be free to do what ever the hell they want without YT’s interference.

    We? Fred helped with the invention?
    & cities were not invented, they developed, over time. & the fact that they 1st developed in an area where people lived (& live) who Fred perhaps (but surely quite a number of his readers) would not even consider white, makes this point mute. Matches were most probably 1st used in China. Not really white, either.

    “White Privilege” is simply the last straw the Negro apologists have to grasp for. The preponderance of empirical data indicates, that as a whole, Negroes cannot function at an acceptable level in a modern society. They are reduced to blaming an amorphous concept of dubious merit because the truth of the matter is too bitter a pill to swallow.

    Excellent article by the veteran. Cogent and yet sadly true about race relations in the USA.In U.S. history, slavery was the fly in the ointment-or the democrat in the woodpile- that caused the current state of affairs.I’d hate to see a race war erupt over cultural and ethnic differences,but it’s entirely possible if the economy deteriorates.

    Another believer in the “magic dirt” theory. You honestly believe there is not intellectual difference between negro and White athletes. I suggest you peruse the graduation rates. Do you really want to get into a discussion regarding the contributions of the various races to civilization? You are either a moron or a troll.

  9. The Civil Rights Movement should have stopped at equal protection and voting rights. Forced integration ruined our public schools and our cities. Affirmative action was never compatible with equality of opportunity. There is no way to undo any of it now. No political reform is possible now that corruption is 100%

    Black and white differences consist of a combination of class distinctions, cultural differences and the lingering affects of slavery and Jim Crow. Plus an assortment of grievances resulting from bungled liberal attempts to assimilate and raise up (make white) black Americans.

    I don’t buy your black people are to stupid to function in a white society BS. Maybe because I do not believe that IQ equals intelligence. Maybe because I am a working class white in the deep south. I know a few and am acquainted with many working black people. They are no more likely to be stupid or lazy or violent than us white guys.

    The working poor of all colors have much in common. We have no police protection for example and no protection from police. Neighborhoods need to learn how to provide their own security. Organize, raise money and pay people to patrol the streets and answer calls for help. Soon nearly all of us will be po folk Fred. When the 1% has everything and the 99% has nothing the dynamics will change. There will be no white middle class, squeezed from both sides. No buffer between rich and poor. Class war is more likely than race war in my opinion and I suppose the rich will prefer and encourage the latter. I for one will not take the bait.

    Fred Reed, you know that you dodged the whole issue. The brouhaha behind the University of Missouri is that a couple of white students threw some rocks at some black student or scrawled a swastika with some feces or something like that. You didn’t mention that. So, why don’t we ask this: Why didn’t the cowardly president get up and say something like this?
    I understand that various threats of safety have been made against our African American pupils. We will find the perpetrators and have them expelled. Meanwhile, I will not kowtow to demands of my resignation as I cannot control the behavior of all 35,000 attendants of this institute of learning, most of whom are young adults who responsible for their actions. Furthermore, I will not tolerate mob rule.
    Then, Mr. Reed, you could write an essay as to why we would tolerate violence and rowdy behavior from blacks that we would never allow in whites.

    Blacks evolved in Africa. Why would anybody expect their evolution to have been exactly the same as Whites’? Why do we have to continue this farce of pretending to believe it was? We’re different, we don’t belong together.

    Thanks for responding A Man.

    I’m new to UNZ Review. Yours is a point of view unfamiliar to me but popular on this board. You summed it up for me when you said “We’re different, we don’t belong together.” We are the same species A Man. Women are different also. Should men and women go their separate way?

    I can agree We’re different. But we are also similar. If we don’t belong together does that mean we belong apart? If so who decides who belongs where and what does it matter anyway. I don’t mean any disrespect A Man. I honestly don’t get it.

    “Black and White differences are baked in. They’re genetic.”

    Yes. There are genetic differences. How do we get from there to “we don’t belong together” There are genetic differences between us and dogs. So what?

  17. @AnalogMan

    Blacks as a group certainly have lower IQs, and far less capacity to plan for the future and delay gratification than do whites, but even given that, blacks were doing a lot better in the United States under segregation than they are now. They were getting better all the time, as all statistics show. There was always a hard core of totally dysfunctional, stupid, sullen, intractable ones, but their percentage was declining. Now it is increasing, as is the delta between black and white performance even as whites themselves are declining.

    I think the United States is eventually going to break up into a bunch of pieces, and that white survival depends on whites getting at least a couple of them: in that regard, Harold Covington isn’t as crazy as he at first seems. I just hope the status quo holds until after I’m gone. I’m too old for that kind of thing and too young to get killed in the crossfire.

    There’s a difference overall, but you have to also figure there are different kinds of white athletes. A certain segment of them are genuinely highly intelligent, but there are a lot of them who have a certain kind of “sports sense” but are relatively dumb in the ways that IQ tests and most of what we do on the job (if we are not pure laborers) measure.

    Almost all black athletes fall in the latter category, whereas with whites it’s quite different, depending on the sport, of course.

    Some (not “we”) tolerate violence and rowdy behavior from blacks that they (not “we”) would never allow in whites, and in that they admit that they well know blacks are not capable of better, not capable of functioning in a modern society, and hopelessly intractably resistant to growing, learning, and evolving.

    The students at Claremont-McKenna College are rallying behind their student newspaper editors who said something very much as you suggested the admins ought (and will not, because they are paid as admins/PR agents who massage situations on order from above).

    Actually nobody threw any rocks–the “cotton ball” episode occurred in 2010 IIRC–and none of the three incidents which caused the brouhaha (two allegations of the N-word, one of them off-campus, and the “poop swastika”) have been substantiated. Nobody took a picture of the swastika, apparently, and the supposed N-word perps have not been identified. We don’t even know if these aren’t simply race hoaxes designed to attract attention.

    At any rate we’re left with three alleged incidents over a couple months supposedly causing a “hostile racial atmosphere on campus,” along with a now-aborted hunger strike by an “underprivileged” grad student whose daddy is a Union Pacific vice-president, making a cool eight-plus million dollars last year. Color me skeptical.

    For the disfavored(or powerless), free speech(protection) is a necessity. Without that protection, their speech can be taken away.

    For the favored(or powerful), free speech(protection) is a principle. Even without that protection, the favored or powerful have free speech for themselves since they got the Power of Speech, the control of the megaphone. So, they don’t need free speech protection to have free speech for themselves. They uphold it out of principle even if it may hurt them.

    When whites had the power, their sense of principle understood and practiced(though not consistently) the policy of free speech.

    But Jews, homos, and Negroes are not principled peoples. Jews are haggly waggly vicious. Negroes are jivey-livey punkass. Homos are whoopsy-doopsy vain.

    None has any sense of honor grounded in aristocratic warrior culture.
    Aristocrats were not fair but still governed by a culture of dignity and fair play, as in duels with rules.

    No such sense of principle exists among merchant Jews, savage Negroes, and decadent homos(though there are individual exceptions). As for yellows, they are dogs and drones who will merely imitate and follow the prevailing wind.

    The current situation is messed up because the Jews, homos, and Negroes rule campus politics—they possess the power of speech as favored groups—, but they see themselves as helpless victims for all eternity no matter how much power and privilege they have.

    PC of Jews, Negroes, and homos isn’t against free speech. They are for free speech for themselves. But they don’t need free speech PROTECTIONS since they got the power of speech.
    Why support free speech protections when your side can have free speech without the protections?
    It’s like Castro doesn’t need free speech protections since he has the power of speech.

    Jews, homos, and Negroes are against universal free speech protections since such will protect the speech that challenges the power of Jews, Negroes, and homos who claim falsely to be powerless.

    Jews are the ruling elites of the world. Just ask Palestinians and Syrians.
    Homos are ruling elites of entertainment and shadowy power; they are favored by Jews.
    Negroes are the thug rulers of streets who assault, rob, rape, and murder non-black victims.

    They have the power of speech, so they reject the principle of free speech that gives their rivals and critics a voice.

    It’s like California trying to ban anti-Zionist speech.
    It’s like homos demanding not only the banning of anti-homo speech but mandatory lauding of homo behavior.

    Indeed, even FREE SILENCE is coming under attack.
    If a famous person is asked about Jews, Negroes, or homos, he better not say ‘No comment’.
    He better loudly praise them to high heaven.

    It’s like you didn’t say NO COMMENT in the USSR when asked about Stalin when he was around. You shouted praises to him.

    In a nutshell, whites(at least Northern European types) have a culture of principles. Non-whites don’t.

    When at war against peoples without principles, whites need to abandon principles and fight for power.
    Whites need to stop defending universal free speech as a principle and call for the banning of anti-white speech, anti-Christian speech, anti-gentile speech, anti-conservative speech.
    Whites should defend only White Speech.

    Only when Libs feel that they need free speech protections will they value free speech as something they can lose themselves.
    Recall how McCarthyism taught the Left to value free speech protections. It was because they came under threat.

The BBC has gone bonkers over Africa; ever since a former director complained the corporation was “hideously white” they have been hiring Africans hand over fist.

    Just because you “do not believe IQ equals intelligence” doesn’t make it so. IQ is the measure of intelligence, the very definition of intelligence.

    Anyone who has gone to college know the truth. When whites flunk they either fade away or buckle down to pass the next time.

    If you are White, live in a majority black neighborhood for a while, and you will, if you aren’t deranged, change you’re opinion. Why do you think Blacks are always trying to move into White neighborhoods? In my experience, White integrationists increase the further they live from Blacks.

  30. Fred, I often enjoy the way you hold up one issue after another like a virtual 3D CAD object and turn it around to expose what the pundits may or may not see but certainly never show. I frequently appreciate how you tweak all sorts of taboos to shock the easily offended, as if clearing the room of drama queens to let the adults converse candidly. Also, your particular experiences in war and peace have made you an expatriate national treasure. For such reasons I’ll continue to read what you write.

    But I didn’t much like this particular column. It seems meaner than your usual take on race relations, and it indulges in the same excess of drama that you normally puncture with whip-cracking wit. Yes, for businesses to ban customers from buying Confederate flags was more than a tilt too far. Yes, my bagpipes, white guilt can get good cops kilt. So yes, you’ve had to endure developments lately getting lauded as triumphs that would have been scandals not too many moons ago. I can feel why you might feel short on patience. But no, resegregation and race war are not going to happen tomorrow, that is, no more than they happen today, and quite likely less. In the Texas grocery store where I work, I see more and more interracial couples and mixed-race children shopping every week. It’s a safe bet some of those kids, once they’ve grown up, will help design Mars landers, too.

    To me it seems you might should sedate this new mean streak of yours and regain your usual curmudgeonly perspective. That’s up to you, though, and I’ll keep reading you either way. Here’s wishing you all the best.

    I have seen it expressed on sites like this that the most strident, angry, bitter racial grievance proponents are almost always mixed race individuals. I had never thought about this before but have noticed since then that, if one watches MSNBC, CNN, and other liberal outlets, this is in fact uniformly true! Melissa Harris-Perry, Barack Obama, Eric Holder…et al…are the most blatant examples but there are dozens of others when one views the various guests who come on these shows whining about micro-aggressions, safe spaces..etc. Almost always mixed race and the whiter the mix, the angrier they are.

    Humans and dogs are genetically different, but evolved in a way that facilitates them living together. There is a pronounced tendency when given a choice for the BULK of blacks and whites to self-segregate (not something that happens with dogs and humans). If this self-segregation is due to genetic differences (which seems to be more and more likely the case as no policy measures seem able to change it), then it’s reasonable to ask whether we should find a way to deal with the inevitable instead of beating our heads against the wall trying to fight it.

    As the white middle class loses economic ground and standards of living fall, anger will grow among the newly impoverished. The constant racial attacks on whites will continue.

    Already happening, sahib- see the recent study by Princeton, pointing out that middle-aged whites sans college are experiencing a 22% early-mortality spike (during a timespan in which every other single racial/economic group, including middle-aged European whites sans college, are enjoying a marked decrease in said numbers).

    And how do our media-elite types greet this tragic-yet-vitally-important news story? – why, with hilarity and derision, of course!

    HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher addressed the increased mortality rate among middle-aged white Americans from drugs, alcohol, and suicide by declaring, “you’re white, cheer the f*ck up.”

    Maher said, “before the recession, whites had four times the wealth of blacks and Latinos, but since the recession, that’s gone up. Now they have six times as much. So if anyone should be bi*ching about wanting their country back, it ain’t you.

    He added, “middle-aged American whites are dropping like flies, overweight, depressed, poorly-dressed flies. Dropping from what? Drugs, alcohol, suicide, and possibly, trying to fit into skinny jeans. The suicide rate for whites is now four times the rate for blacks, and in the last decade, 90% of the people who tried heroin for the first time were white. It’s hard out there for a wimp, and that’s why tonight I’d like to remind white people of something very important they may have forgotten, you’re white, cheer the f*ck up.

    I despise Sodomania parades and ‘gay marriage’, but I thought there would be one silver lining to the whole ‘gay marriage’ thing.

    It became such a major maniacal agenda of the so-called ‘left’ and ‘progressive’ community that it put everything on the back-burner for awhile.

    Progs, millennials, Libs, leftards, conzo cucks, and etc. were all slobbering for it.
    S.E. Cupp wept like a baby when it happened.
    Oh, how humanity would be saved and become more evolved by accepting ‘gay marriage’!!!!!

    Well, it’s here, and guess what? The world isn’t any better for it. What a bummer. (Obama’s ‘transformative presidency’ also turned out to be a bummer, and Progs won’t get another wild excitement from the notion of ‘first black president’. That thrill is also gone. Libs seem to coast on thrills as their ideology is decadent and shallow.)

    I thought the sodomania ‘marriage’ would be the last great cause of the so-called ‘left’, and that seems to be the case.
    NYT may push tranny stuff, but it’s too weird and laughable to really catch on.
    ‘Caitlyn’ Jenner? Sure. Whatever. Even some homos are feeling uncomfortable about this tranny stuff.

    All the energies of the prog community had gone toward sodomania ‘marriage’.
    But now that GREAT VICTORY has been won, there is no compelling cause left.
    There is nothing left to unite everyone and focus the energies on.

    There is just endless bickering and hysterics and micro-aggressions and triggers and silly stuff about swastika poops and etc. (Also, with homos having gotten so much, all the other ‘victim’ groups are envious and want the same victories. Envy and resentment are powerful motivators. The white feminist movement caught steam when black men got the vote after slavery. White women were envious that Negro men could vote but white women could not. When homos were pushing for ‘gay marriage’, other groups went along in the name of solidarity. But when homos got so much power and privilege, naturally other groups, esp. Negroes—the traditional main official victim group—is feeling very envious. And now that black homos got ‘gay marriage’, they’d rather push race issues than homo issues since homos are much better off than blacks.)

    At least with homo stuff, it got huge corporate backing cuz homos are close to the rich and famous. But the rich progs, even as they fund stuff like BLM, must really be wondering… this stuff is damaging the bastions of Liberalism like colleges. Also, BLM is making cities dangerous with Negro thuggery once again. Oops.

    Just because you “do not believe IQ equals intelligence” doesn’t make it so. IQ is the measure of intelligence, the very definition of intelligence.

    Which is to say that what you believe makes it so. (You enshrine your belief in a definition.)

    The relationship between IQ and intelligence is a scientific (empirical and theoretical) question, not a matter of definition. And even Jenson once said that IQ tests underestimate negro intelligence by five points.

    Reasonable people can disagree on the g factor. John Horn (of the reigning Cattell-Horn-Carroll theory), to his dying day, denied the existence of g. [I proposed a non-g model in 1980 – “Cognitive abilities as expressions of three ways of knowing” – http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1207/s15327906mbr1501_3?journalCode=hmbr20%5D

  48. This piece is close to incoherent. We’re to imagine that negroes, claimed a standard deviation below whites in intelligence and much further behind the white elites, are manipulating whites into embracing them. (How else does it explain the apparent coincidence of negro and elite-white political aims?) Fred is imagining that the Red Guard was manipulating Mao Tse-tung.

    But if it’s the white (and Jewish, if you like the distinction) elites manipulating negroes in the latters’ personal bureaucratic interests, we should look to removing the elites, not segregating the negroes, who are potential allies of white workers against those same elites.

    “Georgetown was once the black district of DC, when the rest of the district was white.”

    Georgetown was already there when the District of Columbia was formed basically out of farm land in Maryland and Virginia (originally 10 miles square but the Virginia part (about 30% of the original) was returned to Virginia in 1871). It is composed of a disparate collection of very small and very large houses. Even though Georgetown was predominantly black when FDR came to town with his New Deal in 1933 and the academics who came to D.C. bought houses in Georgetown, I don’t think Georgetown was uniformly black. Whites still owned the prime real estate. On the other hand, D.C. has always had a large black population from the start (30% in 1800), but the percentage has varied over the years (19% in 1860, 33% in 1870, 54% in 1960, 71% in 1970, 49% in 2013). There are sections of D.C., such as Capitol Hill, which went from predominantly white in the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s to predominantly black in the 60’s, as the whites fled to the suburbs, before switching back to predominantly white from the 70’s on, as gentrification set in after whites discovered the advantage of living closer to work and got bored with commuting by lengthy drives. There was never a time when blacks lived just in Georgetown and the rest of D.C. was made up of whites.

    No offense, and thank you for keeping it civil.

    I think the other replies to your comment pretty much cover it. Yes, we are different from women and dogs, but I wouldn’t want to live without either.

    It’s a question of compatibility. We may be the same species as negroes (though you will get some argument on that, too), but if that species were any other than homo sapiens, our differences are great enough that we would have been classified as different sub-species. Nature teaches us that two subspecies of the same species do not occupy the same territory.

    There is no place in the world where black and white share the same territory, where the influence of the black has not been deleterious to the white. If I am wrong, please show me the place. Where is there a white society that is better for the presence of blacks?

    Where is there a black society that has similar standards to white, in terms of crime, productivity, order, education, any criteria you care to name that make for livability?

    Nobody wants to live with blacks. Not for long, anyway. Not even blacks want to live with blacks. Why should we have to?

    I accept your bona fides. I also acknowledge that I am not unbiased. I lost my country, South Africa, which was destroyed by integration. So, please read this article, by a liberal Harvard sociologist, Robert Putnam, published in the left-wing Boston Globe, which reluctantly reaches the same conclusion: Diversity is not a strength, but a source of conflict.

    South Africans could have done the same in the 19th century had they built a wall between themselves and the encroaching Bantus. They didn’t, and that was the beginning of integration.

    Actually, CNN is a “false balance” outlet, like The Daily Beast and Politico. They want a mix of partisans to view and read them, so they don’t really pitch liberal any more than they pitch conservative, but they only propagate a narrow range of establishment views.

    More truly balanced outlets can be found, like RealClearPolitics, though even they are too narrow to acknowledge the likes of Fred Reed as worthwhile.

    MSNBC, Comedy Central, Slate, Huffington Post: now those are liberal outlets. Some outlets are even farther left: The Nation, AlterNet, Salon, Mother Jones, Raw Story. They don’t want many conservatives to view and read them, any more than Breitbart wants liberals.

The same government that has been voted into office over and over again yet works against the wishes of the majority of people much of the time. This so-called ‘democracy’ always yields undemocratic results. How can this be? That’s because this ‘democracy’ is just a shell game where the rich and connected always win.

    From your response, my comment wasn’t clear enough. I’m not saying Fred’s view has changed. Indeed he has used several of the same phrases before in discussing race relations. I’m saying his tone seems meaner this time, and not necessarily meaner only to blacks, either. I’m saying he lost his patience, and his temper, in this column.

    They destroyed our cities, public schools and now our colleges. ¶ There is no upside by having blacks in a civilization, none.

    Perhaps I misjudge, but your own view seems meaner than Fred’s. Even though he unflinchingly calls attention to the statistical aggregates and unpleasant factual trends in black behavior, he acknowledges exceptions, and can certainly act as a gentleman towards individuals of any race or political persuasion. Liberals, and others whose perceptivity ends once they’ve labeled him, are often surprised by how gracious he can be.

    “As for upsides, a black man saved my father’s life when he was attacked by union goons, which means a black man made my life possible.”

    Good for your father and the man who saved him. But you miss the point, Fred was talking about upside for whites in general. Your comment is akin to the ever present replies of SWPL types when talking about race:

    “But there are white criminals too” or “Most blacks are good people.”

    No kidding. Neither of those facts negate the more important and much larger fact that blacks destroy neighborhoods and anything else that they touch.

    You see, using an anecdote to illustrate a larger trend is helpful. Using an anecdote to mask a larger trend is lying even though the anecdote may be true. You are using one personal experience to make people believe that blacks in general are different than they really are. You, sir, are liar.

    Obviously, blacks will run along a spectrum – a bell curve – so you will have blacks of every sort. However, that’s not the question. The question is what are they like on average, because it’s the average that you and I will deal with – not the exceptions – over time.

    It’s like when that nice black couple moves into the neighborhood. Fine, upstanding folk. But they have a couple of kids, who are also generally nice, but maybe not quite as Oreo as the parents. Then, the niece moves in because of trouble in the old neighborhood. Soon, her boyfriend shows up, and he’s not quite like blacks on the commercials, is he. Then a few more black families move in. They’re alright, but not as nice as the first couple. And their kids are causing a few problems. Ten years down the line, and the neighborhood sucks.

    It’s the average, not the exception, that matters. I’m quite sure that you understand this, so your use a positive (and true) anecdote to spin the truth on averages shows that you’re a liar at heart.

    No, that wasn’t Fred talking about upside, that was rod1963, claiming, “There is no upside by having blacks in a civilization, none.” For me there was an upside. When union goons attacked my dad, a black man saved his life. I would not exist otherwise. Getting to exist counts as an upside for me. I bet it would for you too.

    It doesn’t contradict Fred Reed to point that out. It doesn’t contradict segregationism either; my dad remained a segregationist even after his life was saved. It only contradicts the extreme view that “having blacks in a civilization” has no possible upside, “none.”

    Using an anecdote to mask a larger trend is lying even though the anecdote may be true. You are using one personal experience to make people believe that blacks in general are different than they really are.

    Masking wasn’t the goal of my comments. If you thought it was, maybe I wasn’t clear enough, or maybe you didn’t read them all carefully.

    After honoring Fred for the worth of his columns in general, I was arguing that this column in particular misfired, because resegregation and race war are not likely to get more intense than they already are. As evidence, I cited the phenomenon of interracial couples with mixed-race children, the demographic growth of which, from what I can see, seems to be accelerating. And I mentioned that some of those children seem bright enough to succeed in endeavors where Fred has observed that most blacks fail.

    Amid my argument, I was careful to acknowledge that white guilt can have lethal consequences, to agree with Fred that the statistical aggregates of black behavioral trends are not positive, and to criticize the bizarre outcome of political correctness, by which some businesses have even banned their own customers from buying Confederate flags. Puncturing PC taboos like the dogma of racial equality is one of Fred’s most valuable roles in the world of letters, and I specifically pointed that out.

    I then suggested that Fred’s usual perceptiveness had lapsed in this case because recent provocations by “bubble heads and babble blondes” had left him short on patience and out of temper. I said I would keep reading Fred whether he accepts my suggestion or not, and I wished him all the best.

    My argument could be wrong, and you’re welcome to disagree, as is Fred himself. But I have characterized my argument accurately here, and you have not, so I invite you to read me more carefully, instead of branding me “a liar at heart.”

    Fred Reed has no reason to remember me, but we met a couple of times in the 80s, introduced by a man I knew as Camper, who never could seem to stop blinking. Camper wanted me to write for SoF magazine, which seemed crazy to both Fred and me. SoF writers were all tough, and I was not. But Camper soon got put in jail by one spoonful of the alphabet soup, only to have a different spoon pull him back out because he was needed in the Caribbean somewhere; and so I never saw Fred again. It sure is a pleasure to read him, though.

  75. I think I may post this to my Facebook feed when I get home, under the heading “This is irredeemably racist. Sadly, it is also true.” Or perhaps a slightly more eloquent devising, to the same general effect.
