Race riot in he South, 1863. Wikipedia: “Rioters subjected black men to the most brutal violence: torture, hanging, and burning.” Eleven were lynched. The Southern mob depicted here were afraid that if the North won the Civil War, freed slaves would take the jobs of whites.

Virginian though I am, a son of the Shenandoah, and brought up among the lazy rivers of the state of Marse Bob Lee and Stonewall—rivers where the sun always seemed to shine and you could mostly catch catfish, and almost think that being alive was a good thing until further experience intervened—I have to admit the deep vileness in the Southern soul. Yes. It was this that brought forth such scenes as above. I cannot deny that the events portrayed happened in the South.

The south of Manhattan, anyway, the drawing being of the race riots of 1863 in New York, in which Yankee mobs killed 115 or so innocent people, many of them black.

Here was early evidence of the deep regard in which Yankees held black men—and still hold them if you look at actions and not protestations. There is nothing like a damn Yank to tell how good he is, how drowning in the curds and cream of human kindness, without in his actions displaying a trace of it.

But should we be surprised? These were the same blue-coats who exterminated the Indians. “The only good Indian,” said the Yankee general Sherman, “is a dead Indian.” Such charitable musings were not unique to him. It was a Yankee named Custer, if memory serves, who after the war devoted himself in the name of the Yankee government to killing Indians, though with mixed results. Yet another Yankee general, Phil Sheridan, wanted to slaughter the western buffalo to starve the Indians to death. I cannot withold my admiration for Northerners for the consistency of their racial philosopy.

Do not misunderstand me. I do not mean to imply that Northerners are the world’s mother lode of preening fraud and practiced hypocrisy. I mean to state it. To talk to these geysers of virtue, you would be sure that their principal object in life was to help the black man, to admit him to the human race as an equal and a brother. I imagine them waking up in the middle of the night thinking how they might advance their darker brethren. Most of them likely do not get enough sleep because of it.

Yet I confess a desire for confirmation. I want to say to them, “Yea, verily. And when was the last time you had black friends to dinner?”

Or even, “And while we are thinking of your deep wells of goodness, those crystalline pools of measureless depth—when was the last time you dined in a restaurant where the majority of the patrons were black…ummm?”

As I thought.

I remember years back that the Washingtonian, the suburban coffee-table magazine of the Yankee Capital, surveyed the news room of the Washington Post, that epicenter of racial oneness, of inattention to color, to see how many of the white reporters sent their children to the black public schools of Washington. “All of them,” I hear you say. “Such paladins of brotherhood could do nothing else.”

Zero. Not one child in a black school. The minute the wife knew that she was pregnant, the couple moved to Montgomery County, Maryland. But no, no!Not because of race! Perish forefend. It was because, well…the shopping was better. Yes, that was it. The shopping.

But perhaps the best way to compare the dark night of the Southern soul with the supernal radiance to the north is to compare the schools the two regions provide for their freed slaves. One would expect schools in the South to be poor, and they are. But in the North, surely the schools are of a high order, well regulated, producing through their lofty academic standards black graduates scoring high on the SATs and not needing the humiliations of affirmative action.

Surely this is what we will see. Otherwise we would have to concede that, 150 years after the Civil War, the North is still holding black children in illiteracy and squalor. Then, Lord save us, we might doubt the purity of Northern intentions.

Fear not! Nothing can be more admirable that the black schools of such northern precincts as, say, Newark, Trenton, Camden, New York, Philadelphia, Detroit, Cincinnati, Flint, Gary, St. Louis, Pittsburg, Baltimore, Chicago, and Washington—schools in the very intestines of Yankeedom. Why, one can hardly tell them from Groton. They display for all to see the superior morals of the North.

They do indeed.

Yanks love to talk about slavery, which they say was horrible and inexcusable. It was. This is today like blaming Jews for killing Christ (“Gosh, Rachel, you don’t look old enough.”) But logic confuses Yanks, so I will not essay it. Anyway, slavery existed because in economic terms it was well suited to plantations, and accomplished the enrichment of greedy men of negligible decency—which is to say, businessmen.

For horrible, try Journal of a Residence on a Georgian Plantation – 1838-1839

But slavery was ill-suited to an industrial state. It lacked flexibility. You had to feed and maintain slaves whether business was up or down. They were a burden and a responsibility. Kindly Yankees hit upon the superior idea of sweated labor, usually of immigrants who had no way of defending themselves. These could be fired when convenient. If they then died it was a matter of no account as, the Lord be praised, more were arriving by the boatload.

And so the pious men of Northern money, who went to church every week, learned to work children twelve hours a day in tubercular dimness, where they grew deformed from poor diet and died early of lead poisoning and rickets.(Try How the Other Half Lives: A Jacob Riis Classic (Including Photography)

Immigrant children in New York, cared for with humanity and love.

Of course this wholesome system sometimes resulted in unfortunate revelations. If to save a few dollars the master of a noisesome tenement neglected to install fire escapes, and in the ensuing conflagration girls were clutching each other and jumping to their deaths from the seventh floor to avoid being burned to death—ah, well. The ways of God were mysterious, and girls easily replaced.

There was no slavery, though. That would have been immoral.

Halloween in New York. The children are disguised as malnourished slum kids with no schools, while their pet horse naps.

After the Civil War, Yankees continued, as they do today, their encouragement of integration for everyone else. Yankees are always sure of what someone else ought to do. Since most blacks were in the South, it was safe to be for racial amity as the North would not have to practice it. When blacks migrated north, the Yanks contained them in poor parts of the cities, as they do today (consult the list of cities foregoing). There were occasional adventures such as the Harlem Renaissance, when fashionable Northerners could go to the Cotton Club and mingle, barely, with real blacks. “Why, they are just like people, almost. Look at them dance!” Uptown, they might keep a few trained and gelded blacks around as ornaments. That was the extent of it.

Is this not what one would expect, in the light of the Yankee’s firm belief that blacks are an inferior strain, half devil and half child, bearing the mark of Ham and incapable of the higher forms of civilization? No, Yanks do not say this, but their every action gives the game away. Always they lower the standard for the black man, but never try to raise the black man to the standard. Why? Because they do not believe that blacks can reach the standards of whites. What is “affirmative action” but the belief that a black cannot perform at the white man’s level? Sometimes they talk of “the tyranny of low expectations.” Indeed. But who in Newark holds those low expectations?

Southerners, I reckon.

Forgive me. I do not mean to offend residents of the North, where virtue runs in the streets until it clogs the storm drains, and the low-hanging branches of trees are damaged by the halos of pedestrians.

    Americans are funny that way. They revile Japanese for imperialism in Asia, but Americans really led the way in the Pacific with imperialism over Philippines.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippine%E2%80%93American_War

    And initially, US and UK gave full blessing to Japan as a co-partner in the scramble for East Asia.

    But then, all of humanity is like this. Everyone conquered or got conquered.
    Americans just did it better and then, you gotta give them credit, did a lot of good things too. What would all them silly Filos be without Americans? Michelle Malkin would likely be climbing a tree like a monkey for coconuts.

    And even though Americans were hypocrites, they did spread good ideas, values, and stuff like democracy, human rights, Shane, The Big Country, Samon and Delilah(Cecil B. Demille), John Wayne movies, High Noon, Christianity(before it got corrupted with too many loud crazy Negroes and icky homos), and stuff.

    But look at America today and the kind of stuff they spread all over the world. Black rap gangsta culture, pop music that encourages women to act like whores, ‘gay marriage’, homo decadence, hateful Jewish lies about Russia, Iran, and etc.

    Americans weren’t always good but American Civilization did once stand for sound values, and step by step, Americans became better and helped make the world better.
    Now, the very core of what America stands for is vile to the core. The only good things in America is high-tech, tons of natural resources, and 40% of Americans who still some semblance of moral order. But the rest? Piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiewwwwwww!!!

    As for Negroes, while it’s true that the white man did some bad stuff to them, it would have been immeasurably worse if white southerners had allowed Negroes to run wild because blacks have more of the savage Mao gene that makes them act like Mike Tyson and stuff. And as they are more muscular and aggressive, that could be pretty frightening.
    Indeed, look at cities that Negroes took over. Chaos reigned and as a result more Negroes got killed by other Negroes in a year than all the Negroes that were lynched in the South since the end of the Civil War.

    I done heard that around 2,000 Negroes done get lynched — and some of them were prolly guilty of doing nasty shit like raping white womenfolk — in the hundred yrs from 1863 to 1963, but in any given year in some big ass city, Negroes be killing one another like crazy.

    So, even though white folks could be brutal, white order over Negroes was preferable to letting Negroes running wild and creating places like Detroit, Cape Town the Rape Town, Newark, Chicago South Side, and other places where Negroes be acting like they is back in Africa with spears and bongo drums and shit.

There is certainly a class of Northerners who feign love for American Negroes, they are a powerful minority, but by no means representative of White folk in the North.

    No criticism of a criticism of the current situation but I see Mr. Reed’s article as more sparks of illumination as the fuel doesn’t seem to me to be concentrated enough for the fire he purports could be ignited. Perhaps a younger generation should be his focus though if you could get one, a Constitutional Convention now might be enough as most groups would think it a good idea to divide into separate factions. Leads to a lot of armchair speculation as to how it would work out.

  7. Corvinus says:

    Of course northerners had their racial issues. But let’s face the immutable fact…southern plantation owners, under the guise of Christianity, demanded that slave labor drive their economy. Northern merchants, desiring huge profits, capitulated. Then, amazingly, increasing numbers of northerners and southerners began opposing the “peculiar institution”. We all know what happened next. The North vanquished the South. Slavery ended. Enter Jim Crow, stage left. Thanks, southrons. And, yes, northern factory owners were well-known for taking advantage of workers in the late 1800’s, Fred. We get it—“industrial slavery”.

    Regarding the Indian wars, indeed, Yanks were prolific in jackbooting redskins. Their southern counterparts, however, were equally skilled in bashing the heads of women and children. Refer to the Lamar Administration, Texas Republic, 1840’s. Somehow our dear host wants us to believe that Yankees were worse than Southrons. Listen, BOTH were murderous, hypocritical scoundrels when it came to people of color.

    “What would all them silly Filos be without Americans?”

    
Happy.

    “it would have been immeasurably worse if white southerners had allowed Negroes to run wild because blacks have more of the savage Mao gene.”



    [Laughs] I just love the moralizing here. Listen, chief, the darkies assuredly did NOT need Europeans to interfere with their civilization in Africa. The whites were frightening enough with their cannonballs and gin.

    “white order over Negroes was preferable…”

    Exactly. To use them as plow horses until they were run ragged.

    “Blacks and Hispanics will never reach the level of Whites.”

    You are right. Historically speaking, whites have been more capricious in their use of violence against people of color.

    “Blacks should have ALL been shipped back to Africa after the Civil War.”

    
Southrons would have never agreed to this proposal. Who would have worked their fields as sharecroppers post-Civil War on the cheap? Whites? Surely you jest.

    “Hispanics should all be deported NOW.”


    Damn the fact that a number of Hispanics are American citizens.

    
“The fact is that all nonWhites are incompatible with White civilization.”

    The Europeans should have thought about it before importing millions of darkies as cheap laborers.

    WHAT African civilization? Sub-Saharan African “nations” tribes more accurately had none.

    Philippines was ruled by Spain for about 3 centuries and was a backwater. It still is a second rate backwater. Before Spanish colonization it was nothing but a backwater for its entire history.

    Some “nations” are backwaters. As in, third rate sub-standard inferior to other tribes, etc. and no amount of uplift can help, ‘specially when IQ has been established to be ca. 80% genetic.

    Sub-Saharan African civilization, that’s a new one. Now go out and buy that bridge in Brooklyn for a dollar.

    Blacks were not welcome in New York City throughout the 1800s. New York was so hostile to Blacks in those days, it turns out, that the city saw zero net Black growth, which implies strong Black emigration.

    Just look at the numbers. From a time when Black numbers in the South were skyrocketing.

    NYC Population By Race and Year
    NYC Whites
    1820: 113,000
    1870: 929,000
    =3.03 doublings

    NYC Blacks
    1820: 11,000
    1870: 13,000
    =0.18 doublings

    Blacks overall, 1820-1870, had 1.4 population doublings in the USA, and New York City beat the USA’s average growth rate by a wide margin. All else equal, then, New York “should’ve” had many tens of thousands of Blacks by 1870, maybe even 100,000. But between Black Flight and those allegedly “fanatically progressive anti-racist Yankees” keeping Blacks out, it wasn’t to be.

    It was to be later, starting about WWI, when a lot had changed, when a pointless European war intervened to bring in labor, and by which time those “fanatically anti-racist progressive WASPs” were just starting to lose power in their own hearthland.

    The Yankee general Sherman

    In General W.T. Sherman’s collected letters, we can see that he very frequently used the word “niggers” to refer to Blacks (“nigger” was definitely a clear-and-away ethnic slur in the 1860s, though not to the hysterical level it is today; in some letters he does use “Colored”, “Negro”, and other terms, I recall). Sherman spoke poorly of Blacks in his writings, calling them useless, that kind of thing. This was correspondence with people like General Grant and others in esteemed positions, and even his wife.

    (Sherman was generally talking about Blacks who attached themselves to Union Army camps and triumphantly demanded handouts, and invited themselves to continue receiving handouts from the army for a while; months, years, whatever. The polite term for these people was “contraband”).

    White racialism was very near the political center of the USA in those days, even from a strong advocate of the Northern side as in Sherman. Evidence for this very easy to find. (Lincoln himself was a fairly strong White racialist, at least according to his own words and his often-discussed Black re-/de-patriation plan.)

    The theory that a long-continuing “WASP far-left progressivism” has been responsible for the past fifty years of change in the USA is easily shown to be false, if you just look at people’s own words and so on. The WASPs weren’t actually, you know, radically progressive at all. Except a radical fringe, but then that’s the definition of a radical fringe. (I think we can understand the popularity of this theory, call it “The Eternal WASP Problem” as a function of current perceived power. It’s easy to kick the WASP. There is no risk. No one will give you any heat for it, ever, in the 2010s. This is not true of criticism of certain other groups.)

  13. @Corvinus

    Do not be so harsh on whites.
    Slave trading had been (and is) going on in Africa amongst African tribes and Arab merchants long before whites sought some return freight for their vessels. Maybe some African tribal chiefs and Arabs made out like bandits from the slave-trade with the Americas and Asia, white traders and sailors where the suckers in that game.

  14. 1863: Only a Southerner, or a Mexican, would call Micks and Paddys “Yankees”. Fred is both.

    “Pittsburg”: Kansas, or California?

    Philadelphia, Camden: Quakers, not Puritans. “Nothing is better for thee than me.”

    Baltimore: “Avenge the patriotic gore that flecked the streets of Baltimore.” Yeah, right… Maryland, My Maryland was written by Yankees.

    Sounds more like Fred wrote it himself:
    “Virginia should not call in vain, Maryland”
    “Huzza! she spurns the Northern scum!”

    Riis: Notably missing from Riis’s pictures are names. You know, of real people, not symbols.

    But that risked a follow-up which might show those same urchins as prosperous capitalists themselves a generation later. Or at least well-paid laborers , thanks to the immigration bills that Yankees Harding and Coolidge signed– and Virginia’s Tommy Wilson notably didn’t.

    Now this is a total and complete lie. The liberal (example Barack Obama) is definitely vs the white man, as is Eric Holder. The US Government is now explicitly anti-white man in its written legal statutes (e.g. Affirmative Action).

    The corporations/plutocrats, many of whom are white, are also liberals. George Soros is a liberal. Actually a leftist socialist to be more exact. Mark Zuckerberg is a liberal. Google founder is a liberal.

    Can go down the list but roughly 90% of all corporate leaders and powers that be are leftist liberal

    Very, very few conservative plutocrats as compared to say about a full century ago. They are mostly liberal today.

    And liberals stopped caring for the white working man ca.1970, when they got on the African-American and Feminist and Environmentalism train. Nothing has changed, except they have picked up new passengers, gays and government unions and illegal aliens.

    What are you laughing at, oh, you’re looking in the mirror at the reflection? Perhaps that is something to laugh at, especially if your interpretation of history is indeed ludicrous.

    “Silly me.”

    Oh, so that’s why you laugh. Not surprised, still looking in the mirror and calling the reflection silly.

    “Africans failed to develop a social structure, stable food supply, religion, government, writing, culture, and technology.”

    So you are actually disputing facts? You are actually attempting to state that they DID in fact develop these things??? Keep laughing.

    You forgot running water, learning not to eat animals that spread diseases (e.g. Ebola), etc.

    FACT: Sub-Sarahan Africa had next to little contact whatsoever with the outside world from about the Paleolithic era, or roughly after the last Ice Age, and the rest of man’s progenitors vacated the area to mix with Neanderthals, up to about…..ca.800BC, when they were encountered by the Arabs.

    FACT: Sub-Saharan Africa had little to no direct contact whatsoever with Western Europe until the Portuguese sailed the Horn of Africa around early 1400’s. The colonization period of Africa did not start until around 1800’s.

    FACT: Therefore in all this time of no direct contact with the outside world (as in centuries and eons of years) Africa could have developed all the features of a civilization but it did not.

    “You know, the seven characteristics of ANY civilization.”

    So then, WHY did not three-fours of an entire continent utterly FAIL to reach the basic starting points that allll those other parts of the world managed to quite well, and it did not take them eons and eons to achieve this level? Ok, continue to laugh as the jokes on you.

    Want the answer: perhaps….DNA. IQ. Suggest you write to blogger Paul Kersey and have this conversation re: why blacks were oooh soooo smart and savy and developed tons of things just fine while in total isolation from rest of world. Go ahead.

    FACT: And Sub-Saharan Africa did NOT develop even the BASICS of competent cultures let alone Civilizations. That tends to tell us that they simply weren’t all that, that their DNA is quite primitive, savage etc.

    “Silly me.”

    We can well understand why you’re laughing so much, to yourself no less. Or rather at yourself would be a more apt designation.

    “Africans failed to develop a social structure, stable food supply, religion, government, writing, culture, and technology. You know, the seven characteristics of ANY civilization.”

    So you merely repeated what was just factually stated and you are slowly coming around to agree with established historical facts, namely that Sub-Saharan Africa had no civilizations to speak of allllll during their time in isolation from the rest of the world? Thank you.

    Surprised you haven’t attempted to pull the black Africa theory that Africans invented nearly everything, and had civilizations flourishing for thousands of years before anyone else.

    Glad to see you have learned that amount of basic, competent analysis of history.

    But it’s perfectly all right for Missouri to decide Minnesota’s citizenship policy, which is what the Dred Scott decision was all about. “Sovereignty for me, not for thee.”

    Well, technically, Dred Scott was not a US citizen or rather a full US citizen. He was originally a slave, which meant he was a piece of property, per the Constitution. Therefore at the time and in the legal context, a slave was a slave and unless made free in someone’s will, he was never free to begin with. When he happened to move to a US territory, and later back to US state, the law would state that he was still a slave.

    In the proper legal constitutional context of mid. 19th century, with slavery as part of the US, that was in fact the proper constitutional verdict to render, at that time.

    People tend to forget that part. At that time, Roger Taney made the correct decision. A slave was a piece of property. He had been sold, there was a bill of sale and therefore he was not a full US citizen.

    Facts are facts. It’s all moot now. But back then, that was the proper constitutional verdict to render.

    Here we have more than the usual number of Afro apologists and Afro-centrists blubbering clownishly about “great african achievement” which presumably does not mean hygiene, plumbing, electrical power distribution, medicine, agriculture, aeronautics, virology, or any number greater than 10. Left to their own devices, in 2015 the Bantu people will defecate in their potable water supply, spread diseases like HIV and Ebola faster than they spread their monthly UN provided free food, rape infants and dismember albinos for their magical curative powers, and demolish any evidence of technology or civilization above crude stills for “waragi” or “Jenkem.” Exposed to the apparently supernatural ability of white Europeans to grow abundant food, cure disease, build automotive and aeronautical transport, and provide endless beneficent charity, the Bantu form a permanent wave of growing demands for free food, clothing, shelter, transportation, and money while brutally murdering any whites too slow in passing out the free goodies. Mentally ill whites, themselves with no conception of how their sane white brothers grow, design, build, and distribute the amazing wonders of technological abundance, volunteer in droves to pass out goodies to the Bantu and imbue in them a sense of entitlement and grievance against those whites who have apparently hoarded the secret magic allowing creation of food, medicine, airplanes, and iPhones. With staggering fecundity, the Bantu replicate far faster than the white man’s magic can provide goodies and the Bantu wave quickly rolls over former First World nations like South Africa leaving only chaos, rape, murder, and disease in their wake. Still somehow fresh minted insane whites bleat louder for more and more goodies to be given the Bantu fueling their demographic tsunami.

    The Bantu are not unique among human tribes. Their cousins the Australian Aborigines, the Andamanese, and fellow African Khoisan all share severe cognitive impairments. Barely more capable Central American Indians and South Asians are too left behind in bewilderment as white men’s magic sends strange metal birds across the skies and even into the unknowable heavens above. These tribes can only angrily shake their spears skyward that the white man greedily withholds his magic for himself while giving them only enough food for 90% to become obese and only one Mercedes-Benz per warlord. They vow to kill the white man and steal his magic for themselves. “Kill the Boer” sings the Bantu President of South Africa to the mob of millions through his white magic bigger-noise boxes. White farmers are butchered by the thousands and the Bantu move in sure they will now possess the wondrous magic of the white man. “But what is this?” they cry, the white man took his magic away as the last blood drained from his now-cold body. The once abundantly fruitful farms grow naught but weeds, the amazing white man’s machines refuse to do the bidding of the Bantu. Even sacrificial offerings of albino livers and infant skulls do not call forth the powerful white man’s magic! The wisest of the wise old Bantu sages however worries not, he just calmly walks to the village “UN” and commands, “Oh great UN, I am hungry, feed me!” and his Bantu magic still works as giant bountiful bales of UNfood and UNclothing and even UNmoney come falling from the skies. “Make it rain, UN, make it rain!”

    Fred Reed gets it. HBD realists get it. Everyone sane with an IQ over 110 gets it although most would rather remove their own eyeballs with a fork than admit the truth and its implications. Undoubtedly the most distressed are those rare Unicorns, the biodiversity lottery winner Bantus born with the 1 in 1,000,000 IQ of 120 who know perhaps better than even the most gifted white magicians the impossibility of the situation. Like Frederick Douglas they beg, “Please just leave the negro alone, leave him completely alone, have nothing to do with him. Let him sink or swim of his own.” It is the insane white’s meddling with the Bantu that has caused this – the Bantu negro must be allowed to starve or thrive according to his own ability and no other. The insane white man has unleashed a horror upon the world and each day it continues the magnitude of that horror grows monstrously larger before us.

    Oh my! We simply must create a special award for them. The “Bantus learn to eat beans prize” we will name it. It can be awarded to promising Bantu youth each year who demonstrate an ability to defecate outside their thatched hut.

    Isn’t this rather silly? It’s like the Special Olympics, trying desperately to find something – anything – at which the Bantu excel. They’re undeniably world champs at spreading venerial diseases. And nobody outdoes them at spreading Ebola. Oh, I know, the west africans are best at running short distances. And East Africans are best at running long distances. But now we have exhausted the list unless rape, cannibalism, and murder are included. Armed robbery?

    Seriously, do we have to do this? It’s distasteful. Like gloating when I beat my dog in a game of chess, “WooHoo you stupid hound! Beat you again! HaHa, and you can’t even open your can of Alpo without my help either!” I mean you could accept every nonsense claim of the Afro-centrists as true and cover maybe half a sheet of paper with their absurdly false claims. Or, you could fill a 26 volume encyclopedia with accomplishments of white men and have a pretty good start toward a complete list. It is that lopsided.

    And it is not an attack on you. For all I know, you’re a better man than I am. The problem is the aggregate. The problem is that Bantus are 2 Standard Deviation (SD) below whites in intelligence. And even with a superior American diet, healthcare, and 25% white DNA admixture, the American negro is still a full 1 SD below whites. The intelligence deficit is then compounded by fundamental differences in character and proclivity. And again, you may be an exception to the rule, you may be a Bantu who loves to work twelve hours a day, has never stolen anything, wouldn’t dream of using violence against anyone, for whom sex outside marriage is unthinkable, and divorce equally unthinkable, who reads a book a day to his kids, and sacrifices everything today so his kids will have a better life tomorrow. You may be all that and more. But then you would be truly one in a million and only a fool would base his worldview on statistical anomalies like yourself. Only a fool would gobble cyanide capsules by the handful because one in a thousand has been found to contain delicious nectar instead of poison.

    Yes, we know there are some nice black people out there and some of us even know some of them personally. But unless one is a liar, he admits that on average Bantus are a tribe genetically locked in barbaric prehistory. Furthermore, if we just discovered the Bantu for the first time today, we would leave him alone and uncontacted like we do with Amazonian tribes and the Andaman Islanders. We would allow him to continue living in prehistory, never to know a thing about those shiny silver birds that fly overhead or those gigantic sea creatures breathing black smoke which he can never reach in his dugout canoes. And why is this our policy today? Because we know he is NOT a fully modern human like the East Asian or the white. We know he has evolved to be happy in his own state of nature just like the happiest Bantu are those in the deepest Congo who have never cast an eye on a white face. Forcing primitive man into the 21st century to gawp uncomprehendingly at men in space suits aboard the ISS is cruel. To then tell him he IS the equal of those astronauts when he has no prayer of being qualified to polish the floors at Kennedy Space Center is even more cruel. We are no different from the lout who dangles treasures before a poor man telling them he may have them and doing this every day for decades before finally taking them away and openly mocking him.

    That is why whites cannot speak of race with Bantus. And it’s why the very few truly smart Bantus are so often utterly screwed up in the head. It’s an epic social disaster. Epic.

This is all about the white man and his anger/rage”.

    Not necessarily. Some who express concern with current political/socioeconomic trends do so out of genuine trepidation as to what comes next. There is no doubt to some that current trends cannot be extrapolated out into the indefinite future with no deleterious effects of any kind.

And this is your example of negro intellect? What about the Congolese Space Program? The Liberian Air Force? The Zimbabwean Superconducting Supercollider? The Gambian Genome Project? The Nigerian Nuclear Physics Laboratories?

    Sadly, and more than a bit foolishly I admit, I had hoped you might be one of the Unicorns. A Tom Sowell who might share with us the insights gleaned from an intelligent insider’s perspective into a population where hermaphroditism is more common than genius. Instead, you’re just another in the masses who thinks that because Tom Sowell and Clarence Thomas exist, negroes are therefore proven an intelligent and civilized race. Concepts like statistics and probability are simply wasted on you aren’t they? I could ask why negroes are 8 times more likely than whites to commit murder and you’ll reply, “You be stoopid! Whites commit moe murder than African Americans. Edyoukate yoosef.” Not even wrong.. Just one more sad example.

    You have nothing to offer. Nothing. You build nothing, create nothing, just regurgitate the same tired non-sequiturs and ad hominems. In person, you’d do the same only increasing the decibels with each, “Africans built tha Pyramids!” One might learn as much listening to his dog bark I suppose. Or at least have a more enlightening discussion with Koko since we know Koko won’t try to argue that apes are smarter than the scientists who study them. Negroes, on the other hand, will do everything possible to bite the hand that feeds, clothes, and houses them. Negroes will spew bile against whites even as they shoot other negroes to advance in the line for free handouts from benevolent whites. And while it’s not behavior completely unique to negroes, it is so much more common among them as to be a defining trait of the race. Mestizos and Indios will get up at 4am to stand outside Home Depot and then be grateful to spend 12 hours doing backbreaking labor while the negro is enraged if his EBT card is declined at the liquor store. Mestizos and Indios seem embarrassed if they can’t speak English fluently while the negro is enraged that the police had the audacity to arrest him during commission of an armed robbery.

    Negroes just don’t get it and I’m afraid they never will. Nobody hates them “for the color of their skin.” Nor does anybody hate them for being dumb. Look how much white folks love people with Down’s Syndrome. Look how we welcome short brown people who can’t even speak our language. We give them free healthcare and even provide free translators despite the fact that they are, by definition, criminals. But we admire their work ethic and the fact that despite grinding poverty they find a way to support and care for grandma without demanding handouts, creating rolling rape epidemics, or murdering anyone who looks at their bad hairdo. All the mestizos, Indios, and whites (plus Asians and anyone else) combined don’t commit as many murders as the negroes do by themselves. No, the thing that makes everyone dislike negroes is their behavior. It’s that absolute refusal to accept, let alone admit, that you’re doing it wrong.

    When the negro is confronted by uncomfortable Truths, he lashes out angrily and too often violently. Tell him his ilk commits about 53% of all murders and he’s likely to murder you in rage. Tell him his kind rapes 20,000 white and “Hispanic” women each year while there are zero white/Hispanic rapes of negro women and he will assault you, rob you, and rape your sister. Tell him half his cousins in Detroit are illiterate despite spending more per student than nearby lily white Royal Oak with zero illiteracy and he will start chanting, “black minds matter” over and over increasing in volume with each repeat until you become deaf. The negro is the only race that refuses to accept any criticism and just keeps behaving worse and worse while demanding more and more. Any other group would condemn its criminals, demonstrate contrition for its failures, and show gratitude for everything its been given. An Asian mom shows more shame when her kid gets a “B” in Trigonometry than a negro mom shows when her kid commits rape, armed robbery, kidnapping, and murder all in a single afternoon joyride in a stolen car. But the negro claims its all because of the “color of (his) skin.”

    As I said a while back, I had some glimmer of hope. That’s gone now. Just another lying negro racist and/or not capable of comprehending the stupidity of Afro-centrist claims. “Africans invented civilization!” And yet somehow it still hasn’t reached the Congo. “Africans invented agriculture!” And yet its unable to operate the farms after murdering the white farmers, permanently on the cusp of famine if not for the charity of whites in America and Europe, gobbling “bush meat” infected with Ebola. “Africans invented written language!” And yet no paper, no scrolls, no tablets, and after thousands of years not one single school on the whole continent capable of attracting foreign students. “Whites ruined everything!” And yet decades after the whites left, all the infrastructure they built has disappeared back into the jungles, AIDS afflicts 25% of the population, thousands have Ebola, and the Bubonic Plague is making a comeback. “Slavery!” And yet the smartest/strongest tribes got riches for capturing and getting rid of the dumbest/weakest of their number.

    Now what do you suppose will happen when the whites who designed and built the thing are all murdered like Zimbabwe and South African white farmers? You think the Igbo tribesmen will keep it flying? Make any improvement to the aviation electronics? I guess for guidance we could look at how other Bantu nations have done with foreign airplanes they’ve purchased with money they’ve been given. But let’s leave that question for now and move on to a moment of gratitude. Because we do owe some Africans a big heap of gratitude. Back in the old South Africa there were operational nuclear weapons. White South Africans had cracked the nuclear nut and successfully tested a nuclear bomb with Israel in 1979. As the end of white control of this technology approached in the 1990’s however, the men responsible for building it decided they must dismantle it and they did. South Africa dismantled and destroyed its nuclear weapons program before handing the keys of government over to the ANC. And for this we should all be very very grateful. Can you imagine these people with functioning nuclear weapons?:

    Actually the “Filos” were among the few colonized people who actually did fare better under American rule. I once saw some Dept. of Education (USA) English reader textbooks for Filipino children,, c. 1900-1910, and they were beautifully illustrated, intelligently written, and culturally respectful. Works of art — the drawings looked like some of the works that get estimated for thousands of dollars on Antiques Roadshow. The U.S. government (of which I am profoundly cynical, generally) went to enormous lengths to make the Philippine people their allies. Since the Philippines were already Christian, albeit Catholic, that was easier. During WWII, the Americans were heroes — Douglas MacArthur’s famous “I will return” was an expression of loyalty to people he saw as allies. To this day, older Filipinos are more often pro-American than not. According to an ex-Marine of my acquaintance, things soured during the Vietnam era, naturally. American soldiers “messed up” (his words) the women by making prostitution lucrative, and voila, a new social class was born. Then the Marcos stuff, aided and abetted by u.s.
    But no, I don’t think the Filos, pre-1900, were any happier, much less “happy”, under Spanish dictate. Under their own, it would have simply broken into various tribes again. That’s not necessarily happier but at least it would have been their own way. Wouldn’t have made much progress though, and most people who don’t have what the “west” has, seem to want it sooner or later, to judge from “immigration.”

    You do realize that that when an empire built by the force of whites takes everything from native populations and destabilizes a region, a society takes several generations to recover from the onslaught.

    “Negroes, on the other hand, will do everything possible to bite the hand that feeds, clothes, and houses them”

    You do realize that slightly more white people are on welfare, correct?

    29 million people are on welfare
    – 39% white: 11,661,000
    – 38% black: 11,362,000

    “I once saw some Dept. of Education (USA) English reader textbooks for Filipino children,, c. 1900-1910, and they were beautifully illustrated, intelligently written, and culturally respectful”

    Please offer evidence to support your assertion, since the Department of Education did not exist until 1980! You probably meant to say Office of Education. Anyways, this dissertation states otherwise–please begin on page 54. Basically, depictions of Filipino children were modeled after Africa-American children–indolent, savage, and inferior who required our help to “uplift” them. Now, to be fair, the federal government did work diligently to train Filipino teachers in the arts of western civilization, with a deemphasis on their cultural practices and an emphasis on industrial vocations.

    To talk to these geysers of virtue, you would be sure that their principal object in life was to help the black man, to admit him to the human race as an equal and a brother. I imagine them waking up in the middle of the night thinking how they might advance their darker brethren. Most of them likely do not get enough sleep because of it.
    Agreed. Northerners always had a large streak of racism or race calculation guiding their actions. Blacks knew this a long time ago. The writings of Frederick Douglas show this is nothing new, and hardly a new revelation. The white Irish for example of the north, were among the groups most bitterly opposed to abolition of slavery.

    .
    I cannot withold my admiration for Northerners for the consistency of their racial philosopy.
    lol.. indeed. You could also add the hypocrisy of Abraham Lincoln. who talked a good game, but whose main program prior to the war was to ship blacks back to Africa. And his “Emancipation” Proclamation did not free a single slave in the north- it curiously, only applied to the south.

    .
    Zero. Not one child in a black school. The minute the wife knew that she was pregnant, the couple moved to Montgomery County, Maryland. But no, no!Not because of race!
    Sure. White liberals can be among the most hypocritical of all. Malcolm X said this back in the day.

    .
    But in the North, surely the schools are of a high order, well regulated, producing through their lofty academic standards black graduates scoring high on the SATs and not needing the humiliations of affirmative action.

    Actually on numerous counts, compared to the more backward south, northern education, or northern aid, limited as it was, often provided a better deal for the black man. It took a northern Jew, Julius Rosenwald, founder of Sears Roebuck, to come south and help build thousands of black schools after WW1. It took hundreds of white missionary teachers from the northern churches after the Civil War to found the first education and schools for ex-slaves in the south after the Civil War. Everyone from liberals (WEB Dubois), to conservatives (Booker T Washington) praised and recognized the positive contributions that the northerners made. The comparison is relative- as it always is. Northern schools were no paragons, but they were better on many counts that what the south could produce.

    .
    Anyway, slavery existed because in economic terms it was well suited to plantations, and accomplished the enrichment of greedy men of negligible decency—which is to say, businessmen.
    Partly true, but slavery was something that benefited southern white non-businessmen as well in various ways. For one thing many plantations provided a ready market for white farmers produce. The owners preferred to devote huge tracts of land to actual cash crops like cotton or sugar, and were able to easily buy the food needed from surrounding white farmers to keep their slave labor force alive. Slavery was also a way for a southern white to “move up” in society- a means of social mobility. The ideal move up was to acquire some slaves to work your land, or business. Then expand that year by year to join the ranks of the local notables.

    Halloween in New York. The children are disguised as malnourished slum kids with no schools, while their pet horse naps.
    All true enough. Just New York City itself had tens of thousands of abandoned white children during the 19th century roaming the streets and living under bridges, culverts etc.

    .
    Always they lower the standard for the black man, but never try to raise the black man to the standard. Why? Because they do not believe that blacks can reach the standards of whites.
    Not really. Northerners were in the forefront of trying to raise standards, not only for blacks but for whites as well. The same missionary zeal that sent hundreds of white teachers south to make such an invaluable contribution to black education, also was deployed in the slums of the white north in various “uplift” projects- from the many orphanages, to the settlement houses of the Progressive era, to the early welfare and charity efforts that helped white Irish families stay alive, to the hospitals and sanitation campaigns to likewise help whites, to the many schools and educational efforts at the grassroots to help the white poor. Black people aren’t anything special when it comes to getting such help. It was white progressives in the north, and some white elites that pioneered it, with the major beneficiaries of these overall efforts, being white.

    What is “affirmative action” but the belief that a black cannot perform at the white man’s level?
    Actually affirmative action was pioneered by whites to lock out competition from other groups. White only quotas are the basic standard for most of American history. And groups like the white Irish actually discriminated against native born whites as they vacuumed up huge amounts of resources, while locking out other groups from a fair competition. And fully one third of all working Irish were once employed by the government in various decades.

    And AA in the modern era originated in the 1930s with white union members who went to court to get “goals and timetables” and protections from discrimination by employers, who denied them promotions or jobs because they were union members. Court ordered remedies to do such did not originate with black people, but with whites as far back as the 1930s. (Sowell 2004). And the major beneficiaries of quotas are white women, who not only gained remedies against being denied equal pay or promotions, etc but also gained significantly where government contracting was concerned- among other things.

    And as Ron Unz has shown recently, whites like Jews are heavily over-represented in elite institutions way out of proportion not only to their population level, but performance level as well, ousting better non-Jewish whites for coveted slots. But few outside a narrow area are talking about this favoritism and special treatment towards Jews, when there are easier black scapegoats to be bashed..

  81. @Rich

    There is certainly a class of Northerners who feign love for American Negroes, they are a powerful minority, but by no means representative of White folk in the North.

    Indeed. There was always a lot of racism against blacks in the north. The white Irish in the north for example were among the most savage opponents of the abolition of slavery, as every credible history shows. But Fred never denied this per se. He was contrasting northern talk with their actual actions.

  82. @Hail

    Blacks were not welcome in New York City throughout the 1800s. New York was so hostile to Blacks in those days, it turns out, that the city saw zero net Black growth, which implies strong Black emigration. Just look at the numbers. From a time when Black numbers in the South were skyrocketing.

    This is true, and the most savage opponents of the abolition of slavery where New Yorkers like the white Irish. As Fred notes, whites in the North were just as racist. Indeed whites north and south, moved to quickly implement their own form of early “affirmative action” in favor of whites in numerous areas, even politics. For example, under the NY constitution of 1777, voting was restricted to free men who could satisfy certain property requirements for value of real estate. This property requirement disfranchised poor men among both blacks and whites. The reformed Constitution of 1821 conditioned suffrage for black men by maintaining the property requirement, which most could not meet, so effectively disfranchised them. The same constitution eliminated the property requirement for white men and expanded their franchise.[6-Wiki]

    On top of that were numerous “white only” job reservation and barriers- effectively affirmative action for whites back in the 1700s. They bashed the white south, but were at times, just as racist. Similar to today, they just hide it better. Malcolm X said several times he preferred an honest racist to a deceptive white liberal- because at least he knew up front what he had to contend with.

    Hail says:
    White racialism was very near the political center of the USA in those days, even from a strong advocate of the Northern side as in Sherman. Evidence for this very easy to find. (Lincoln himself was a fairly strong White racialist, at least according to his own words and his often-discussed Black re-/de-patriation plan.)
    Indeed. Northern whites were just more hypocritical about it.

    The theory that a long-continuing “WASP far-left progressivism” has been responsible for the past fifty years of change in the USA is easily shown to be false, if you just look at people’s own words and so on. .. No one will give you any heat for it, ever, in the 2010s. This is not true of criticism of certain other groups.)
    Yes, WASPs are only one factor in the mix. What about Jewish leftism? Or the continued corruption of white ethnics like the Irish that transformed many large urban governments into cesspool of patronage, and high government spending (witness the huge tax burdens in places like Jersey City under these white regimes). And there is quite muted criticism of the huge over-representation of certain groups like Jews at the elite venues of influence like certain universities. They get a pass relatively, compared to the legions that turn out in high dudgeon when black scapegoats can be bashed.

    The Khosian/San did not suffer any “genocide” at the hand of the Bantu. This is bogus. The Bantu displaced the Khosian in SOME areas, but in other areas the people co-existed peacefully and even intermingled. Some of the San were assimilated. Many simply moved away from the more settled Bantu to continue their hunting way of life. The record shows a complex situation, not the simplistic “genocide” above.The distinctive “click” sounds found in the languages of some Bantu people such as the Xhosa is evidence of the long intermingling and interaction between the two peoples.

    As credible scholars note in such standard works as Encyclopedia of Africa, Vol 2, the first Bantu were primarily agriculturalists and pastoralists, and thin on the ground, leaving vast areas to the Khosian hunter-gatherers. Only gradually did the Bantu farmers and pastoralists increase and begin to enter areas long dominated by the Khosian. An expanding agricultural population did over time replace the Khosian, but there were no mass campaigns of extermination, nor did the Bantu enslave the Khosian like the white settlers did with many Khosian children. There was no “genocide”. And expansion of farmers is nothing new. In Nordic Finland settled farmers crowded out peoples like the reindeer herding Sami or Lapplanders over many centuries, but no one is going around talking ’bout “genocide” there.. Puhleeze..

    At present, the best source for Obama Administration data on homicides by race is a 2011 report by Alexia Cooper and Erica L. Smith of the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics called “Homicide Trends in the United States, 1980-2008:”
    “Based on available data from 1980 to 2008—
    “Blacks were disproportionately represented as both homicide victims and offenders.…The offending rate for blacks (34.4 per 100,000) was almost 8 times higher than the rate for whites (4.5 per 100,000).”
    Here are some more fascinating facts from the Obama Administration:
    – Across the 29 years from 1980 through 2008, blacks comprised 52.5 percent of all homicide offenders (Cooper and Smith, Table 1), even though they only made up about 13 percent of the population.
    – With gun control a hot topic, it’s worth noting that the report says that African Americans committed 56.9 percent of all homicides with a gun (Cooper and Smith, Table 7).
    You know that stereotype of young black males as dangerous? According to the White House, it’s true:

    “While young black males have accounted for about 1% of the population from 1980 to 2008…(b)y 2008, young black males made up about a quarter of all homicide offenders (27%) (Figure 23b).”

    29 million people are on welfare
    – 39% white: 11,661,000
    – 38% black: 11,362,000

    And, as I wrote, terms like “probability” and “per capita” are simply wasted on you aren’t they? One would have better luck teaching Down’s victims to spell “floccinaucinihilipilification.” Depending on when your numbers above were compiled, “whites” may or may not have included “hispanics” and may have represented anything from 80% of the population total to just 60% of the population total. “Black,” on the other hand, would be more certain at around 12-13% of the population total. Regardless, it is clear that “blacks” welfare dependency is wildly disproportionate to whites. Additionally, when you weigh the fact that State and Federal bureaucracies are mainly “make work” jobs programs for otherwise unemployable negroes, the situation is even more dire. I’ve often seen it written by astute economists that the negro middle class exists only due to government “jobs” doing “work” that functions only to create problems requiring yet more “work” to undo.

    Lastly, you are trying to play the common negro racist game of claiming the existence of some ancient Bantu “civilization” then demanding your claim be disproven by some arbitrary and capricious standard. In fact, Bantu civilization is disproven every day in every village, town, city, state, and nation governed by Bantus. For your fantasy “civilization” to have once existed, the Bantu would be the only race known to have significantly devolved in the last 5,000 years. The Bantu survive today solely as result of white charity. Without white gifts of food, clothing, shelter, medicine, hygiene, and education, hundreds of millions of Bantu would die of preventable/curable disease and/or famine within a generation.

    As thanks for our largesse, whites are hated, beaten, robbed, raped, and murdered by Bantus that could not otherwise summon the strength to shoo flies from their faces. This is most evident in America where Bantu enjoy the highest standard of living of any negro at any place or time in history yet commit the overwhelming number of inter-racial crime and broadcast their hatred for whites in music, art, and college navel-gazing degree tracks (ie “blackness studies”). Then again, I’m unaware of any group with whom the Bantu do get along. The mestizos and Indios are rapidly “racially cleansing” the American southwest of Bantus. We live in interesting times..

    Only about 1 percent of African Americans — and no more than 2 percent of black males — will commit a violent crime in a given year

    No more than 0.7 percent (seven-tenths of one percent) of African Americans will commit a violent crime against a white person in a given year, and fewer than 0.3 (three-tenths of one percent) of whites will be victimized by a black person in a given year. Whites are 6 times as likely to be murdered by another white person as by a black person; and overall, the percentage of white Americans who will be murdered by a black offender in a given year is only 2/10,000ths of 1 percent (0.0002).

    “Depending on when your numbers above were compiled, “whites” may or may not have included “hispanics” and may have represented anything from 80% of the population total to just 60% of the population total.”

    “Lastly, you are trying to play the common negro racist game of claiming the existence of some ancient Bantu “civilization” then demanding your claim be disproven by some arbitrary and capricious standard.”

    The ancient Bantu tribe met the objective criteria for civilization, as I have stated numerous times. Keep flailing.

    [“Sockpuppetry”—posting under numerous different names to pretend your views are more widely held—is totally unacceptable here. Continue it, and all your future comments may be summarily trashed]

    Whites are 6 times as likely to be murdered by another white person as by a black person; and overall, the percentage of white Americans who will be murdered by a black offender in a given year is only 2/10,000ths of 1 percent (0.0002).

    You know, you don’t seem to care much about black folks being killed. Why is that? What is the percentage of black folks killed every year? And who kills them?

    What percentage are killed by cops? I can hear you now: “Cops only kill a hundred or two black folks per year, but black folks kill thousands and thousands a year. Black folks shouldn’t be whining about cop killings, they should be whining about black killings.”

    Yeah. Right.

    As I commented earlier, Africa is a continent but it seems that the whitewash of Africa only pertaining to ‘sub-Saharan Africa’ is the result of lies being repeated long enough to become truth.

    Just like the Greece of yore now being looked down upon as a backwater of a modern Europe, or the former Caucasian republics residents being called ‘chernopzpahy’ (black arses) by their former Soviet and present Russian overseers.
