An “aging white population [is] speeding [up] diversity,” blared a headline on The Hill.

Once again, a Fake News outlet has confused cause and effect, giving readers the impression that the two trends—whites dying-out and minorities thriving—are spontaneous and strictly parallel.

The reverse is likely true. Corrected, The Hill headline should read:

Could speeding up diversity contribute to a decline in the white population?

We learn that “there are growing signs that the rate of change is increasing.” Well of course. America welcomes well over 1 million, mostly non-white, immigrants a year.

If white lives mattered at all to the liberal establishment, an inquiry would ensue: Is it possibility that an enormous influx of legal and illegal migrants over decades is playing a role in the decline of America’s founding population? (A similar, sad fate was visited on their predecessors, the Amerindians.)

On the one hand, we have the drastic decline of America’s white population; on the other, a massive inpouring of minority immigrants, since 1965. A correlation between the two makes sense. A large, well-controlled national survey, conducted by Harvard political scientist Robert Putnam, found that diversity immiserates and that the historic population is most affected. Perhaps protracted misery (associated with loss of community) hastens death.

The logic posits a zero-sum game. The native population has been swamped over time. Resources are scarce—especially when allocated by a wastrel, white-hating Administrative State. In hating on whites, civil society’s institutions are as culpable.

Is it not highly plausible, then, that immigration social engineering, compounded by state policies that privilege non-white newcomers, could contribute to a population decline in white America?

Picture the following scene, set somewhere in Trump country, say West Virginia:

A pale patriarch must help his bright son choose a career.

What about pursuing the law?

That’s inadvisable (unless you become an immigration attorney). Law schools routinely reject working-class white males, in favor of students who can show they’ve overcome the right kind of hardship. Berkeley and Texas, for instance, already make unusual hardships and life experience a crucial consideration in admissions. “Unusual hardship” is a racial cue card for things like having been shot, or quitting a gang. As commentator Steve Sailer once noted wryly, “The kind of hardships” that’ll be given extra credit are “largely peculiar to preferred minorities.” A Syrian refugee is bound to have a trump card in American universities, if Trump doesn’t deliver on his promise.

What about a degree in engineering? Oh, no, you can’t pursue that. Forget about a knack for invention; for designing and fixing gadgets, inherited from Scottish ancestors. Forget your facility with math and physics. Chances are working-class white American lads, circa 2016, will be replaced by the 65,000 H-1B Indian visa recipients, imported annually by America’s plutocracy.

ORDER IT NOW

Industry magnates and lobbyists are forever countering with studies that employ the “impregnable” science of econometrics to prove that all this globalist activity creates more jobs than it kills. The studies invariably beg the question, as they assume facts not in evidence. In this case, the research assumes the new jobs will be as good as the old (vanished) ones.

Speaking of the “new jobs”: Want to remain employed in the U.S.? Choose a profession, preferably service-oriented, that can’t be outsourced. Got the aptitude to probe the field of fiber optics? Bad idea. Better to become a gym instructor to the growing population of menopausal gym-bunnies.

Or, emulate the author of “Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis.” Write a culturally compliant, elitist account of poor, white America. To pass muster with the left literati, “Hillbilly Elegy’s” eloquent author generally omits references to the systemic racial demonization and dispossession visited upon poor whites.

To be fruitful and to multiply, people need certain conditions. Good jobs, for one. Prospects for the future, for another. In this context, consider just how ruthless central planners and their scientists are in “optimizing” and “managing” the natural world. Liberals have developed a utopian vision of how nature should behave. It must remain in perfect balance. To that end, they’ll exterminate harmless critters that violate the liberal idea of Order; of species correctness. Thus when a delightful flock of gentle conure parrots made San Francisco’s Telegraph Hill its home, radical environmentalists demanded the flock—it has a complex, highly evolved social structure and bonds—be exterminated because it wasn’t indigenous.

While animals may not migrate illegally, or disrupt the preordained “natural” order—liberal social engineers encourage non-indigenous peoples to mess with the social habitat of historic, host populations. Provided they’re white. If you’re a rainforest pygmy, liberals will fight for your survival.

Declining birthrates have long been the excuse advanced by central planners for sticking with mass immigration policies. The aging white population is not replacing itself, say proponents of dooms-day demographics. Young, Third-World immigrants are essential to shore-up the welfare state.

However, the now-waning West became great not because it was more populated than the rest of the world and outbred it. The West was great because of its human capital—innovation, exploration, science, philosophy; because of superior ideas, and the willingness to defend such a civilization.

America doesn’t need more people; it needs to allow its own people to recover.

    Cuba was certainly one of the most developed countries in the Western Hemisphere before the Revolution, also the embargo's effects are highly exaggerated.

    Actually, the so called 'embargo' was a calculated gift to allow Cuba and the Cuban people to become strong on their own. I think we can all agree that the success they've had would be diminished greatly were they to not have beaten back the challenges they faced without Satan's help. There's not a Cuban you can find that wishes that the embargo had not been put in place.

    A big part of the decline is due to America’s postwar economic growth and concomitant geographic and social mobility. A lot of these areas have had tremendous population and brain drain into the major urban areas and suburbs over the past couple generations. People are less fertile in urban or suburban areas. These areas have lost much population and brain power:

  5. Good insight here: American whites are demoralized. The elites are determined to import a replacement population and whites are being told (lectured actually) that: (1) everything bad that happened to anyone, anytime, anywhere, including themselves, is their fault; but (2) they are the beneficiaries of magic “white privilege,” which makes their lives oh-so-much easier than the lives of the vibrant people of color, before whom they should grovel. Whites are resistant, but even they can finally be ground down by relentless propaganda and an elite that hates and despises them. The question for the next twenty years: will whites rise up and strike back, or will they simply acquiesce in their own disappearance and replacement.

    Corrected for accuracy--Americans over the decades have enabled groups of people to enter our shores. Some of these Americans are business owners who are using their property as they deem fit. That may include the hiring of foreign workers. In other words, company heads are exercising freedom of association to spur economic growth and generate profits. Moreover, the "replacement population" narrative is a False News Story.

    "Whites are resistant, but even they can finally be ground down by relentless propaganda and an elite that hates and despises them."

    Elites do not hate, nor despise, whites. You are buying hook, line, and sinker the narrative of the Coalition of the Right Fringe groups.

    Maybe, but that’s hardly the main cause. All developed countries suffer low birth rates, even ones without immigration like Japan. Wealth, higher education, and careerism is what declines populations, which in turn allows the left to justify diversity/immigration using labor as an excuse.

    If the first world could figure out a way to maintain fecundity and produce large numbers of children/workers within homogeneous societies, globalism will be dealt a terrible blow.

    The main problem that I see is: People now 'need' two vehicles, a wide and luxurious house, and if possible a boat to go fishing. SO, both parents must work, leaving their child bearing behind, and thus we do have a older population childless. I do see around bunch of old women enjoying their new luxury cars, and their expensive stuff, but alone, and lonely, promiscuous and screwing any one who is willing, and living a libertine life without a moral compass at all. Thus we do have a world with old women and older guys who go on living with their 'lovers' without a commitment to have a family, and having children with both parents as was few decades ago when the normal was father, mother and children.

    So what do we expect? gone are the days when we were satisfied to have a job, come home and find our wives cooking for us, with our children happy to see dad come home. Yes, call me what you want, but I was able to sustain my family out of military pay. And I am proud to have my wife take care of my kids, and stay home mom.
    I remember when fellow airmen gave a hard time to another person for having four kids, and a wife who stayed home to take care of same. I was so elated and asked them if they help in the sustenance of those four kids, and what I saw was shame in their faces, some how they were brain washed into thinking that having four kids was some how shameful. I thought it was manly, and normal, and told our friend so, and congratulated him, telling him. "the world needs more white boys, what the heck!"

    Another trashy third rate article by wannabe white supremacist Ilana Mercer. America imports nearly a million non white immigrants and that includes you, Ilana! Mercer has no understanding of the mechanics of free market. White population is ageing, a demonstrable fact for whatever reason, be it sociological, psychological or for the simple reason that some time ago Western women decided to have less babies-that’s their choice. You still have to run an economy and market forces demands steady replacement of the workforce. It is therefore no coincidence that most genuine believers in free market capitalism are relaxed about immigration and we are not just taking about Wall Street bankers. Overwhelmingly immigrant labour is productive and the economy benefits. Without this constant replacement of an ageing population the economy would head towards not merely recession but permanent stagnation. Moreover, Mercer is too thick to see the irony – a liberal immigration policy allowed a swarthy alien like her to emigrate to North America and acquire Canadian citizenship.

    It is a monstrous lie to say that immigrants are brought into the country to beef up the welfare state. Poor whites are the biggest beneficiaries of welfare and no one should begrudge them that because their communities have been devastated over the decades not because of immigration but due to the march of globalization. American factories closed in their thousands due to much cheaper, readily available, and equally skilled Chinese workforce.

    Another lie perpetuated by Alt Right morons- whites are discriminated by top university. Wrong! Top American Universities are the best in the world. That means they recruit the best based on ability alone. If they were recruiting second rate candidates as a result of some twisted ideology as Mercer alleges then it would be impossible for them to achieve top world ranking year after year.

    65,000 H-1B Indian Visa recipients? We all know about Trump’s attributes except one. Believe it or not, Trump is a Indophile. He has more business interests in India that any other country on earth. If anything, under Trump more H-1B Indian visas will be issued. You haven’t done your research have you?

    Mr. Unz, may I call you Ron? Please sack the obnoxious Ilana Mercer. I understand your desire to have a token woman on board. Surely there is no shortage of intelligent women who can write, who do not suffer from self hatred and who are willing to come on board and join your endeavor.

    Mass immigration, economically speaking, is nothing more than a method of transferring income from the working classes to the ownership class. Absent mass immigration, the labor supply tightens, wages rise, and technological innovation obviates the need for workers at certain tasks-- a list that is expected to grow exponentially, over the coming decades, even if the immigration floodgates remain ajar. Japan has chosen a path to remain Japanese, taking the lead in robotics, while Western leaders, throughout the Eurosphere, have decided to deracinate their native populations, through mass immigration of unassimilable Third Worlders, in concert with perpetual government, media, and academic indoctrination and propaganda that an inherent fault when found in any society-- diversity-- is, instead, "our greatest strength!"

    It is laughable that you would appeal to Mr. Unz, by name, to remove a columnist from his Web site, based upon the sole criterion that she does not write things that please you personally, just after your claiming that top American universities admit students based upon merit alone:

    White population is ageing, a demonstrable fact for whatever reason, be it sociological, psychological or for the simple reason that some time ago Western women decided to have less babies-that’s their choice.
     
    Uh. "less babies" would be due to feminism, the ascent of hypergamy and the cultural war on traditional values.

    It is therefore no coincidence that most genuine believers in free market capitalism are relaxed about immigration and we are not just taking about Wall Street bankers. Overwhelmingly immigrant labour is productive and the economy benefits.
     
    The biggest proponent of immigration are not believers in free market capitalism. They are either anti-white ethnic agitators, or greedy SOBs who wish to flood the labor market, drive down wages and hike up their profits.

    If anything, under Trump more H-1B Indian visas will be issued. You haven’t done your research have you?
     
    Not bloody likely. Did you listen to any of Trump's campaign speeches on immigration? He specifically mentioned the current abuse of H-1Bs, and pledged to put citizens interests (& wages first).

    Where have you been since 1968? Universities use affirmative action admissions like every employer. A nephew was turned down by Stanford despite very high SATs and straight As at a prestige private high school.

    I told his parents to insist that he check black instead. But being honest Whites he checked White.
    So he worked construction for a year, re applied as a black who "struggled" with the horrors of being one of the few blacks at a Loyola high school and viola!!!! not only was he accepted but got a full scholarship including vouchers for those overpriced text books.

    You have no idea what you are writing about. Affirmative action is the major criteria in college admissions and hiring and promotions. What are you, a Rip Van Winkle who went into a coma in 1960? Do you think Eisenhower is President and Kennedy will take office next month?

    Nope, not a liberal. Just a white American male who is able to make his own decisions about race.

    "organizations have no remaining right to “freedom of association” vis-a-vis their recruitment, hiring, treatment, promotion and retention of potential and actual employees, as to any trait that the government, at large, has chosen to protect, as a matter of law."

    That is patently false. Organizations hire whom they want to willingly employ. They routinely get around SJW inspired laws.

    Project much?

    "Feel free to pass your sage advice about shaming Whites into submission along, however, to the mainstream media, academia, and our various levels and branches of government."

    When posters here insist that there is a difference between "good whites" and "bad whites"; that there ought to be financial incentives for only those whites who have 4 or more children; and that white people are "race traitors" for procreating with non-whites, these actions are clearly shaming tactics.

White population is ageing, a demonstrable fact for whatever reason, be it sociological, psychological or for the simple reason that some time ago Western women decided to have less babies-that's their choice. You still have to run an economy and market forces demands steady replacement of the workforce. It is therefore no coincidence that most genuine believers in free market capitalism are relaxed about immigration and we are not just taking about Wall Street bankers. Overwhelmingly immigrant labour is productive and the economy benefits. Without this constant replacement of an ageing population the economy would head towards not merely recession but permanent stagnation. Moreover, Mercer is too thick to see the irony - a liberal immigration policy allowed a swarthy alien like her to emigrate to North America and acquire Canadian citizenship.

    It is a monstrous lie to say that immigrants are brought into the country to beef up the welfare state. Poor whites are the biggest beneficiaries of welfare and no one should begrudge them that because their communities have been devastated over the decades not because of immigration but due to the march of globalization. American factories closed in their thousands due to much cheaper, readily available, and equally skilled Chinese workforce.

    Another lie perpetuated by Alt Right morons- whites are discriminated by top university. Wrong! Top American Universities are the best in the world. That means they recruit the best based on ability alone. If they were recruiting second rate candidates as a result of some twisted ideology as Mercer alleges then it would be impossible for them to achieve top world ranking year after year.

    65,000 H-1B Indian Visa recipients? We all know about Trump's attributes except one. Believe it or not, Trump is a Indophile. He has more business interests in India that any other country on earth. If anything, under Trump more H-1B Indian visas will be issued. You haven't done your research have you?

    Mr. Unz, may I call you Ron? Please sack the obnoxious Ilana Mercer. I understand your desire to have a token woman on board. Surely there is no shortage of intelligent women who can write, who do not suffer from self hatred and who are willing to come on board and join your endeavor.

    Mass immigration, economically speaking, is nothing more than a method of transferring income from the working classes to the ownership class. Absent mass immigration, the labor supply tightens, wages rise, and technological innovation obviates the need for workers at certain tasks– a list that is expected to grow exponentially, over the coming decades, even if the immigration floodgates remain ajar. Japan has chosen a path to remain Japanese, taking the lead in robotics, while Western leaders, throughout the Eurosphere, have decided to deracinate their native populations, through mass immigration of unassimilable Third Worlders, in concert with perpetual government, media, and academic indoctrination and propaganda that an inherent fault when found in any society– diversity– is, instead, “our greatest strength!”

    It is laughable that you would appeal to Mr. Unz, by name, to remove a columnist from his Web site, based upon the sole criterion that she does not write things that please you personally, just after your claiming that top American universities admit students based upon merit alone:

  15. I generally agree with this, but choose to nitpick over one detail.

    Real engineering jobs (electrical engineering, chemical engineering, etc.) are not being outsourced to H-1B’s at all. The jobs that are called “technical” these day, exclusively in IT, ARE being outsourced to H-1B’s. Two comments are relevant to this. One, much of what is called “technical” and “engineering” is really IT systems analysis and management. Much of this is not really that technical. The BIT (bachelor of Information Technology) degree I suspect is not as rigorous as the traditional BSCS (bachelor of science in computer science) degree was, say, in 1985, not to mention a BSEE degree. Second, the outsourcing is being done by the large Silicon Valley companies as well as other large corporations (e.g. Disney, SoCal Ed, etc.) that can get away with this.

    America doesn’t need more people; it needs to allow its own people to recover.

    America needs to reduce its third world population and increase the white founding stock. This is easily achievable by providing preferences in education and jobs coupled with financial incentives for working and middle class whites to have 3-4 children. This means blacks and other non-whites get the leftovers. Non-white immigrants should also be barred from receiving any public aid such as welfare, food stamps and medicaid.

    Whites should not feel guilty about furthering their own group interests as Negro, Latino, Jew and Muslim lobby for special rights and privileges for their respective groups often at the expense of whites. A healthy race would have put an end to this state of affairs long ago, but that’s another matter. And this is our nation since it was founded and built by white Europeans and since we constituted a super majority of 90% until the early 1970′s. It was never intended to be a giant safe space for Mestizos and other third world peoples fleeing the dysfunction of their own societies.

    A government can only effectively serve one race of people, not multiple racial groups. But this will involve dislodging Jews from positions of power and influence throughout the establishment (for starters, George Soros should be arrested and executed). For if a campaign to revive the white founding stock ever begins in earnest it is they who will throw their considerable political weight behind efforts to maintain the status quo of white demographic displacement, dispossession and death.

    With 100 million non-whites on American soil we are arguably past the point of no return, so a racial partition of this nation is the best option to include one giant ethnostate or several medium sized ethnostates for whites.

    Parts of a seemingly unnoticed 2009 book review on amazon by anti-zionist Jew E. Baumgartner:
    “A Must Read Book For Every American, May 17, 2009 This review is from: Importing Revolution: Open Borders and the Radical Agenda (Paperback) William Hawkins does an excellent job at explaining who is behind the open borders our nation suffers from. There are several groups who push for open borders:
    - The cheap labor crowd (eg. U.S. Chamber of Commerce, etc)
    - The government of Mexico and Mexican-loyalists living in the USA (MALDEF, LULAC, NCLR, etc)
    Organized Jewry (ACLU, SPLC, ADL, WJC, etc). Their goal for the past 80+ years has been to turn the USA into a multicultural nation, making sure whites are one day reduced to a minority. Jews, in their usual paranoia, feel they’ll be safer in a multicultural America in which no ethnic group is above 50% (Jews will then just be another minority group in such a future America). Jews also view white Christian gentiles as their historic enemy, so they feel some satifaction in eroding WASP culture and reducing WASP’s demographic numbers.
    - Alter-globalists (ie. Marxists, Trotskyites, Socialists, etc).
    - Economic globalists (eg. Rockefellers, Rothschild’s, Bilderbergers, the “free” trade crowd such as those behind the World Trade Organization, international bankers, etc
    So, these are the different groups behind open borders. It is CRITICAL to understand that the economic globalists are at the top, they are driving all of this.
    Lastly, the above subversive scheme is being executed on ALL white Western nations in the same manner (USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and all of Western Europe) since the
    white Western world is the #1 obstacle standing in the way of the NWO.”

    Smug Binyamin,
    This some vile dreck you’ve spilt. Best you do your homework before venting your anti-white, anti-American animus. Your paranoia & insecurity are too obvious.

    White population is ageing, a demonstrable fact for whatever reason, be it sociological, psychological or for the simple reason that some time ago Western women decided to have less babies-that’s their choice.

    Uh. “less babies” would be due to feminism, the ascent of hypergamy and the cultural war on traditional values.

    It is therefore no coincidence that most genuine believers in free market capitalism are relaxed about immigration and we are not just taking about Wall Street bankers. Overwhelmingly immigrant labour is productive and the economy benefits.

    The biggest proponent of immigration are not believers in free market capitalism. They are either anti-white ethnic agitators, or greedy SOBs who wish to flood the labor market, drive down wages and hike up their profits.

    If anything, under Trump more H-1B Indian visas will be issued. You haven’t done your research have you?

    Not bloody likely. Did you listen to any of Trump’s campaign speeches on immigration? He specifically mentioned the current abuse of H-1Bs, and pledged to put citizens interests (& wages first).

  19. I find it easier to understand what’s going on by thinking in terms of mindsets.

    Considerably more than fifty percent of whites have the type of mindset that makes African countries what they are, while considerably less than one percent of minorities have the type of mindset that created America.

    Every year the Thin White Line gets thinner and Detroitification gets closer.

    Multiculturalism is a gift that keeps on giving. Propaganda gift, that is. Invented in US in order to prevent possible communist takeover via radicalized blacks, more recently has been used for different purposes. Once US established its credentials as a non-racist country (multiculturalism being the main proof) it felt free to invade any third world country and unleash mayhem without being afraid of being called racist.

    In its most recent reincarnation, multiculturalism is simply a tool of oppression. It’s used by the ruling class against the majority (at the moment) in order to prevent a regime change at home.

    Democracy being the code word for Capitalism, Multiculturalism is used to prevent someone from coming with a bright idea to improve over what is already perfection – Democracy. You see Democracy is the highest achievement of social and economic order and any attempt to tamper with it is sacrilegious.

    The main mantra of Multiculturalism being: “We are all equal”, it was never meant to reach the upper echelons of society. When the ruling class says “We are all equal” they really mean – YOU are all equal – the members of the great unwashed.

    From their perspective (US elites) – the racial composition of the great unwashed really doesn’t matter, as long as they agree to be the targets of exploitation.

    Multiculturalism is really devious tool of oppression that only really truly evil capitalist mind can invent. If you try to fight that tool of oppression – you are racist – instant deflection of who really is the bad guy. And if you really persist and go after the really evil system that invented it – again you are the one who is evil, because why would anybody want to fight against such goodness like Democracy (Capitalism).

    The real short sightedness of the morons who invented Multiculturalism (US elites) lies in the fact that they believe that they can import third world multiculturalists indefinitely and that their positions as elites would be left untouched, because everybody else is equal but they are really grandiose and irreplaceable. Once the multiculturalists become majority, how long will it take for them to replace the elites who are exploiting them and who are of alien DNA with elites of their own DNA. But who can think that far ahead.

    An excellent point. US foreign policy has been in practice driven by an insane degree of xenophobia. Any country that is not thoroughly Americanised and totally subservient to the US is a dangerous enemy that must be destroyed. What makes the American Evil Empire so toxic is that this is combined with stupidity, naïveté and rampant hypocrisy.

    I'm not talking about ordinary Americans. I'm talking about the American elites who have been a menace to both the UDS and the world since the days of Woodrow Wilson.

    You are such an insightful reader that, before long, you might even figure out that Ilana Mercer is a woman. (For a leftist like you, that means that her "gender identity" is illiquid, and matches her sex, as determined by her immutable pair of X chromosomes.) As for employers, here is a bit of pro bono legal advice, from a retired attorney: organizations have no remaining right to "freedom of association" vis-a-vis their recruitment, hiring, treatment, promotion and retention of potential and actual employees, as to any trait that the government, at large, has chosen to protect, as a matter of law. As for the rest, reality remains reality, no matter how much it is denied by someone who grossly overestimates both his own intelligence and his own knowledge. Feel free to pass your sage advice about shaming Whites into submission along, however, to the mainstream media, academia, and our various levels and branches of government. I am sure that they all would get a real kick out of it.

    “You are such an insightful reader that, before long, you might even figure out that Ilana Mercer is a woman.”

    Wait, a woman who has a career? I thought that was off limits in your book.

    “(For a leftist like you, that means that her “gender identity” is illiquid, and matches her sex, as determined by her immutable pair of X chromosomes.)”

    Nope, not a liberal. Just a white American male who is able to make his own decisions about race.

    “organizations have no remaining right to “freedom of association” vis-a-vis their recruitment, hiring, treatment, promotion and retention of potential and actual employees, as to any trait that the government, at large, has chosen to protect, as a matter of law.”

    That is patently false. Organizations hire whom they want to willingly employ. They routinely get around SJW inspired laws.

    You are patently an idiot. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was the accomplishment (such as it was) of President Lyndon Baines Johnson, not social-justice warriors-- a term that did not yet exist, back in the day. The Act clearly abridges Americans' right to free association in employment and housing, inter alia. That right has since been diminished much further through the moronic and malignant concept of "disparate impact"-- based on the moronic and malignant belief in human equality as "a contingent fact of history" (in the words of the late Marxist-Leninist and scientific charlatan, Professor Stephen Jay Gould), as opposed to the principle of equal justice under law. The only protected class that employers are essentially free to abuse, despite the letter of the law, is that comprising those of us of a certain age-- but, even then, that rank discrimination can be safely dispensed only to potential employees, who usually do not possess enough information to risk filing suit under the Act, based merely upon their not being chosen for any particular jobs, usually against unknown competition.

    "Project much?"

    I do not need to project. I know what my official IQ score is (or was, c. age 50). I know what I scored on the GRE (12/8/79), the GMAT (10/25/80), and the LSAT (12/6/80), before earning my advanced degrees in Personality & Social Psychology (M.S., 1982), Law (J.D., 1985), and Management & Organization (M.B.A., 1988). If you would like to compare scores or advanced degrees, just say so; otherwise, I will continue to judge you as I have, to date: by the intellectual and substantive content of your own unfailingly obnoxious and unhelpful comments on this Web site.

    Where did either I or Ms. Mercer say any such thing, in an attempt to shame our fellow Whites? What does what any other poster has said in that regard have to do with either your own critique of Ms. Mercer's current column, or of my previous response to you about this column? The entire ideology of our hostile ruling class, on the other hand, is based on demonizing Whites, based on our supposed "privilege" and our supposedly unique "racism" against all others, rather than to apply the class-based critique to themselves that they previously applied to the previous ruling class. Your own denial that our current elite-- despite its being overwhelmingly composed of Whites-- demonizes the White masses who still compose the majority of the population over which that elite rules, de facto et de jure, is simply laughable. "Whiteness Studies" is not a field of appreciation. Hillary Clinton's comments on race, during this year's campaign, were not appreciative or supportive of her own race. Her husband famously waxed ecstatic, during his presidency, over the eventual minority status of his own race. The ruling class at large feels likewise, and has become equally blatant that punishing American Whites for the supposed sins of our forebears is justification enough for unending Third World immigration, separate and apart from the ruling classes' economically illiterate lies about the overarching benefits of such immigration to the nation as a whole. We soon will be arriving at the end game of the nation as a hole, with Whites then as a hated and demonized minority that is, nonetheless, still legally discriminated against because we perform better than certain other demographic groupings do, on almost every intellectual, academic and occupational measure known to man.

    "You “thought that” based on exactly what evidence from my hundreds of thousands of words, to date, at this particular Web site, let alone elsewhere on the Web?"

    Among your white brethren is the notion that white women, in order to instill white virtues and perpetuate the white race, ought to remain at home tending to the children and refrain from seeking careers and ride the carousel. Are we truly to assume that you would take umbrage to such a position?

    "I did not call you “a liberal;” I called you “a leftist.” There is nothing about Leftism that is liberal; left-wing ideology is the antithesis of liberal philosophy."

    Left-wing politics supports social equality and egalitarianism, often in opposition to social hierarchy and social inequality. Liberalism shares these sentiments.

    "My race was jointly determined by my parents, just over six decades ago; I am simply playing out the hand that I was dealt from their genetic decks."

    As well as the environment that you were born and raised in. Nature, as well as nurture, has shaped you.

    "The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was the accomplishment (such as it was) of President Lyndon Baines Johnson, not social-justice warriors– a term that did not yet exist, back in the day."

    Regardless of the origins of the term, those who had supported this piece of legislation would be characterized in this manner by those proud members of the Coalition of the Right Fringe groups.

    "The Act clearly abridges Americans’ right to free association in employment and housing, inter alia."

    Had the South honored the Justices ruling in the Plessy case regarding "separate but equal", perhaps federal intervention to ensure the liberties of all citizens would have been averted. Clearly, blacks during the Jim Crow era were treated other than political equals. The right of whites to openly and freely associate with blacks in the South was assaulted through legal and social sanction. If a white family sought to sell a house to a black family in an exclusively white neighborhood, their personal freedom to engage in such conduct was deemed illegal and immoral. Thus the CRA ensured that state sponsored action of abridging federal citizenship in such vile undertakings would be obliterated.

    "That right has since been diminished much further through the moronic and malignant concept of “disparate impact”– based on the moronic and malignant belief in human equality as “a contingent fact of history” (in the words of the late Marxist-Leninist and scientific charlatan, Professor Stephen Jay Gould)..."

    Thank you for your excerpt of a Fake News Story.

    Ah, another colorist.

    Merely by the way, Cuba is now essentially even with the United in life expectancy. A massive gain for Cuba since the pre-Revolution days, and with the deck stacked against them by the embargo, and a dismal failure for the United States.

    Cuba was certainly one of the most developed countries in the Western Hemisphere before the Revolution, also the embargo’s effects are highly exaggerated.

    "Wait, a woman who has a career? I thought that was off limits in your book."

    You "thought that" based on exactly what evidence from my hundreds of thousands of words, to date, at this particular Web site, let alone elsewhere on the Web?

    "Nope, not a liberal. Just a white American male who is able to make his own decisions about race."

    I did not call you "a liberal;" I called you "a leftist." There is nothing about Leftism that is liberal; left-wing ideology is the antithesis of liberal philosophy. I have read enough of your comments on this Web site to stand by my characterization. As for me, the full-scale test at politicaltest.net labeled me a "liberal patriot," although I personally prefer the term "paleoliberal nationalist," since ignoramuses do not grasp the distinction between liberal philosophy and leftist ideology, and I am not an overtly patriotic person. The well-known Libertarian test plots me at the corner of the interior square at which point Libertarian, Left / Liberal, and Moderate all meet. Exactly which "decisions" you think that you are making "about race," I could only imagine (but would rather not). My race was jointly determined by my parents, just over six decades ago; I am simply playing out the hand that I was dealt from their genetic decks.

    "That is patently false. Organizations hire whom they want to willingly employ. They routinely get around SJW inspired laws."

    You are patently an idiot. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was the accomplishment (such as it was) of President Lyndon Baines Johnson, not social-justice warriors-- a term that did not yet exist, back in the day. The Act clearly abridges Americans' right to free association in employment and housing, inter alia. That right has since been diminished much further through the moronic and malignant concept of "disparate impact"-- based on the moronic and malignant belief in human equality as "a contingent fact of history" (in the words of the late Marxist-Leninist and scientific charlatan, Professor Stephen Jay Gould), as opposed to the principle of equal justice under law. The only protected class that employers are essentially free to abuse, despite the letter of the law, is that comprising those of us of a certain age-- but, even then, that rank discrimination can be safely dispensed only to potential employees, who usually do not possess enough information to risk filing suit under the Act, based merely upon their not being chosen for any particular jobs, usually against unknown competition.

    "Project much?"

    I do not need to project. I know what my official IQ score is (or was, c. age 50). I know what I scored on the GRE (12/8/79), the GMAT (10/25/80), and the LSAT (12/6/80), before earning my advanced degrees in Personality & Social Psychology (M.S., 1982), Law (J.D., 1985), and Management & Organization (M.B.A., 1988). If you would like to compare scores or advanced degrees, just say so; otherwise, I will continue to judge you as I have, to date: by the intellectual and substantive content of your own unfailingly obnoxious and unhelpful comments on this Web site.

    "When posters here insist that there is a difference between 'good whites' and 'bad whites'; that there ought to be financial incentives for only those whites who have 4 or more children; and that white people are 'race traitors' for procreating with non-whites, these actions are clearly shaming tactics."

    Where did either I or Ms. Mercer say any such thing, in an attempt to shame our fellow Whites? What does what any other poster has said in that regard have to do with either your own critique of Ms. Mercer's current column, or of my previous response to you about this column? The entire ideology of our hostile ruling class, on the other hand, is based on demonizing Whites, based on our supposed "privilege" and our supposedly unique "racism" against all others, rather than to apply the class-based critique to themselves that they previously applied to the previous ruling class. Your own denial that our current elite-- despite its being overwhelmingly composed of Whites-- demonizes the White masses who still compose the majority of the population over which that elite rules, de facto et de jure, is simply laughable. "Whiteness Studies" is not a field of appreciation. Hillary Clinton's comments on race, during this year's campaign, were not appreciative or supportive of her own race. Her husband famously waxed ecstatic, during his presidency, over the eventual minority status of his own race. The ruling class at large feels likewise, and has become equally blatant that punishing American Whites for the supposed sins of our forebears is justification enough for unending Third World immigration, separate and apart from the ruling classes' economically illiterate lies about the overarching benefits of such immigration to the nation as a whole. We soon will be arriving at the end game of the nation as a hole, with Whites then as a hated and demonized minority that is, nonetheless, still legally discriminated against because we perform better than certain other demographic groupings do, on almost every intellectual, academic and occupational measure known to man.

    I challenged you to find anything that I have written on this Web site-- now totaling well over 200,000 words-- to support what you said earlier. Failing to do so, you return, instead, to building crude strawmen-- the supposed opinions, unquoted, of other Whites, unnamed and uncited-- and then trying, pathetically, to tar me as just another one of them, despite all evidence to the contrary. You are redolent of the proverbial dog, returning to its own vomit. If what you claim about yourself is true-- i.e., that you, too, are an American male of indigenous-European descent-- then the Whites that you are forever bemoaning are your racial brethren, too.

    Since most of my old girlfriends, along with most of my other female friends and acquaintances from my post-baccalaureate years (ages 21-32), became either credentialed professionals or white-collar managers-- with most of those old girlfriends now millionaires, in their own right (i.e., not including their husbands' earnings and wealth, if any)-- the laughable conceit of your stupid question, quoted by me immediately above, should be self-evident, now, to all other readers of this comment thread, if not to a true-believing anti-racist such as you, living within an ideological delusion in lieu of real life.

    "Left-wing politics supports social equality and egalitarianism, often in opposition to social hierarchy and social inequality. Liberalism shares these sentiments."

    IDEOLOGY = THEOLOGY - DIVINITY

    Only totalitarian terror can be employed in the futile attempt to make people and things equal that are inherently unequal. Liberalism is merely a philosophy, like Conservatism, and does not require totalitarianism or terror, because its goal is not Utopian. It is not about equality of end states; it is about equality of treatment, for things that are alike, and discrimination, in its non-pejorative sense, for things that are not alike. The open-mindedness and genuine tolerance that is characteristic of Liberalism is anathema to ideologues, at whichever end of the spectrum.

    During the death struggle between left-wing totalitarianism and right-wing totalitarianism, in the previous century, Liberalism (as it was rightly understood, then, as opposed to the euphemism for Leftism that it has become, since) was the common enemy of both the Left and the Right, for it was the philosophy that underpinned modern nation-states, having replaced monarchial rule based upon the supposed Divine Right of Kings (or Queens).

    "As well as the environment that you were born and raised in. Nature, as well as nurture, has shaped you."

    My environment, since conception, no more could have changed my racial characteristics than it could have changed me into a giant bug, a la Franz Kafka's 'Gregor Sansa', or Vincent Price's cinematic brother, 'Andre Delambre'!

    "Regardless of the origins of the term, those who had supported this piece of legislation would be characterized in this manner by those proud members of the Coalition of the Right Fringe groups."

    Although the term "social justice" had been around for decades, at least, there was no such term as "social-justice warrior," in 1964, because there was no such phenomenon! The phenomenon was a later, prideful coinage of the Left, but has since been turned on its head by its enemies. The supporters of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 were mostly old-fashion liberals, both Democratic and Republican, with most opposition coming from Southern Democrats (i.e., segregationists). LBJ and Humbert Horatio Humphrey-- let alone the Congressional Republicans, who voted for the new law with 80% or better in favor!-- were anything but the type of "social-justice warriors" that now plague America, and the rest of the Eurosphere, since the pernicious ideology of radical egalitarianism has eclipsed Christianity as the guiding ethos of Western societies:

    "Had the South honored the Justices ruling in the Plessy case regarding 'separate but equal', perhaps federal intervention to ensure the liberties of all citizens would have been averted.

    The Kansas City (MO) School District judicial experiment of the mid-1980s, et seq., shows precisely what would have happened if "separate but equal" accommodations had been provided to southern Blacks, in the deep recesses of American history, to your subsequent satisfaction (as to process and funding):

    https://www.cato.org/pubs/pas/pa-298.html

    Cf., Robert Burns....

    White neighborhoods were kept that way, back in the day, through restrictive covenants-- until the Supreme Court ruled that it would be unconstitutional for the Courts to uphold them (as opposed to the agreements then being illegal per se). Your hypothetical White family would have bought that house with the restrictive covenant a known part of the terms of sale. Ergo, that family's rights of free association were not infringed when it (hypothetically) wished to sell the house to a "Negro family" (as they were then known, in polite and mixed company). It was that Supreme Court decision that limited property rights-- not the upended system of restrictive covenants.

    It is not a story-- other than in the sense that it is essentially, and patently, untrue!-- let alone a news story; but, then again, neither are most of the supposed "fake news stories" now being demonized by the apparatchiks of the Establishment propaganda media (EPM) who laughably call themselves journalists.

    "Companies are able to routinely sift through application forms and focus on interviewing and hiring prospective employees who are other than white."

    Organizations now are required by law to attain and maintain a workforce without a so-called "disparate impact" evidencing "discrimination" (i.e., insufficiently equal results) against any protected group-- even when an organization's methods are designed and applied in a facially non-discriminatatory fashion. Even the Conspicuously Negrophilic Network-- CNN-- has just been hit with a class-action lawsuit, claiming that it has been systematically discriminating against its own Black employees since (at least) 1997. "Shame!"

    "I did not request, nor care, about your alleged accomplishments. Fishing for compliments?"

    If I had wanted compliments (from others), I would have cited my actual scores on all of those tests (plus the GRE subject test in Psychology, which I took on the afternoon of that same Saturday, thirty-seven years ago this very day). I merely was demonstrating my willingness to accommodate your challenge as to whether I need to "project" that for which I accuse others. [HINT: I do not!]

    "Glad to oblige."

    Merely demonstrating, further, the anti-social pathology that finds its natural expression in left-wing ideology, politics and on-line commenting.

    "A great example here of virtue signalling."

    Merely demonstrating that you have no understanding of the term's proper meaning and usage.

    "Exactly why I made reference to this 'good whites' vs. 'bad whites' narrative. The elites are not seeking to destroy their own kind. Talk about silliness on a grand scale."

    Your own preternatural denseness is hereby duly noted. Elite Whites do not see the White masses as "their own kind." They see other elites, on a global scale, as "their own kind." Elite Whites are ideologically deracinated-- and, indeed, that is their single greatest pride in their own supposed superiority to the White masses! It is the elite's own version of being "born-again," and thus newly untainted of America's, and the entire West's, supposed "Original Sin" of "Racism."

    "American whites such as myself are able to make their own racial decisions without being badgered. Remember, immigrants built our country, those who came here willingly and those who came here by force."

    It remains unclear to me, and I assume to the others, here, reading your regularly regurgitated drivel, just what "racial decisions" there are for you to make!?! If you actually are White, then you are stuck being White, no matter what delusions you might have to the contrary-- unless, of course, you are of North African or Middle Eastern descent, in which case you might be transmogrified, come 2020, into an "oppressed person of color," depending upon what "Another Hitler" has his Bureau of the Census do, between now and then!?!?!

    As for immigrants, we are approaching a peak of the portion of the country that is composed of immigrants, or even of "immigrant stock" (i.e., immigrants plus their native-born American children), yet they still comprise a smallish minority of the country, and even a decided minority of its working-age population. At most other times, over these past 240 years, the relative size of the immigrant stock had been far smaller. The notion that "immigrants built our country" is a ludicrous conceit, on their part, and a ludicrous canard, on yours.

    For the record, those brought to this country "by force" (by whom, I have to assume, you are referring to African slaves) already were enslaved by their fellow Africans, before being bartered away to middlemen, who then imported them to the United States. The proportion of the slaves traded out of Africa who actually were imported into the United States, between July 4, 1776 and December 31, 1807 (after which it became illegal), was tiny, when compared to the rest of the Americas, let alone to the entirety of the world's overall slave trade, during that brief time period. (Indentured servants did not come "by force" to America, of course, since their indentures were given in return for their being transported here-- a trip which they desired, but otherwise were incapable of financing.)

    "If you are going to take the credit for these accomplishments, then best be able to critically look in the mirror and recognize that European greatness came with a high-price to those nations lucky enough to have been graced with their presence."

    I have to assume that by "these accomplishments" you are referring to my claim that "we [Whites] perform better than certain other demographic groupings [e.g., Blacks, Hispanics and Amerindians] do, on almost every intellectual, academic and occupational measure known to man.” Since I attribute those "accomplishments" overwhelmingly to our [White] advantages [over the referred to "groupings"] crafted by human evolution itself, I do not do any excessive mirror- or navel-gazing on the subject. "It is what it is," as Roger Clemens' erstwhile friend and athletic trainer once noted.

    As for the results of the Age of Discovery and the colonial period in European and American history, I think that we clearly got the short end of the stick-- and no gratitude, into the bargain! Good luck finding a Black or Amerindian (including Hispanics) who would voluntarily leave us evil Whites, and the societies that we have created around the world, behind, to go to live in the types of societies that their own ancestors had created, prior to European, and later American, colonialism. Just for starters, it is estimated by social scientists that about one quarter of all adult males in primitive societies died violent, premature deaths, due either to warfare or homicide. Not even Blacks in my own old haunts-- such as Gary, New Orleans and Baltimore-- would likely accede to those sort of odds!?!

    You're equating symptom with cause.

    Is it not highly plausible, then, that immigration social engineering, compounded by state policies that privilege non-white newcomers, could contribute to a population decline in white America?
     
    Maybe, but that's hardly the main cause. All developed countries suffer low birth rates, even ones without immigration like Japan. Wealth, higher education, and careerism is what declines populations, which in turn allows the left to justify diversity/immigration using labor as an excuse.

    If the first world could figure out a way to maintain fecundity and produce large numbers of children/workers within homogeneous societies, globalism will be dealt a terrible blow.

    The main problem that I see is: People now ‘need’ two vehicles, a wide and luxurious house, and if possible a boat to go fishing. SO, both parents must work, leaving their child bearing behind, and thus we do have a older population childless. I do see around bunch of old women enjoying their new luxury cars, and their expensive stuff, but alone, and lonely, promiscuous and screwing any one who is willing, and living a libertine life without a moral compass at all. Thus we do have a world with old women and older guys who go on living with their ‘lovers’ without a commitment to have a family, and having children with both parents as was few decades ago when the normal was father, mother and children.

    So what do we expect? gone are the days when we were satisfied to have a job, come home and find our wives cooking for us, with our children happy to see dad come home. Yes, call me what you want, but I was able to sustain my family out of military pay. And I am proud to have my wife take care of my kids, and stay home mom.
    I remember when fellow airmen gave a hard time to another person for having four kids, and a wife who stayed home to take care of same. I was so elated and asked them if they help in the sustenance of those four kids, and what I saw was shame in their faces, some how they were brain washed into thinking that having four kids was some how shameful. I thought it was manly, and normal, and told our friend so, and congratulated him, telling him. “the world needs more white boys, what the heck!”

    Yeah sure simply because their own propaganda agencies make such rediculous claims they are then automatically true.

    And of course communists such as yourself would not dare to question these preposterous assertions.

    I seriously doubt that even you yourself would choose to be treated by a supposedly highly-trained Cuban doctor at one of their "first-class" medical facilities, which are lacking of adequate medical technology due to the cruel refusal of the " class-enemy" ( USA), implemented through the embargo, to provide them with modern medical equipment.

    In 1959 Cuban life expectancy was 58. It is now 78 plus and higher for women. In 1959 the Cuban literacy rate was 26 percent. It is now 99.8 percent.

    Absurd, Cuba had an illiteracy rate of 23.6% in 1953 (4th lowest in Latin America), similarly healthcare and insurance was more readily available than almost anywhere else in Latin America (refer to link in previous post). Castro turned the third or fourth wealthiest country in the hemisphere with GDP per capita similar to Italy and Japan into a dump.

    I challenged you to find anything that I have written on this Web site– now totaling well over 200,000 words– to support what you said earlier. Failing to do so, you return, instead, to building crude strawmen– the supposed opinions, unquoted, of other Whites, unnamed and uncited– and then trying, pathetically, to tar me as just another one of them, despite all evidence to the contrary. You are redolent of the proverbial dog, returning to its own vomit. If what you claim about yourself is true– i.e., that you, too, are an American male of indigenous-European descent– then the Whites that you are forever bemoaning are your racial brethren, too.

    Since most of my old girlfriends, along with most of my other female friends and acquaintances from my post-baccalaureate years (ages 21-32), became either credentialed professionals or white-collar managers– with most of those old girlfriends now millionaires, in their own right (i.e., not including their husbands’ earnings and wealth, if any)– the laughable conceit of your stupid question, quoted by me immediately above, should be self-evident, now, to all other readers of this comment thread, if not to a true-believing anti-racist such as you, living within an ideological delusion in lieu of real life.

    “Left-wing politics supports social equality and egalitarianism, often in opposition to social hierarchy and social inequality. Liberalism shares these sentiments.”

    IDEOLOGY = THEOLOGY – DIVINITY

    Only totalitarian terror can be employed in the futile attempt to make people and things equal that are inherently unequal. Liberalism is merely a philosophy, like Conservatism, and does not require totalitarianism or terror, because its goal is not Utopian. It is not about equality of end states; it is about equality of treatment, for things that are alike, and discrimination, in its non-pejorative sense, for things that are not alike. The open-mindedness and genuine tolerance that is characteristic of Liberalism is anathema to ideologues, at whichever end of the spectrum.

    During the death struggle between left-wing totalitarianism and right-wing totalitarianism, in the previous century, Liberalism (as it was rightly understood, then, as opposed to the euphemism for Leftism that it has become, since) was the common enemy of both the Left and the Right, for it was the philosophy that underpinned modern nation-states, having replaced monarchial rule based upon the supposed Divine Right of Kings (or Queens).

    “As well as the environment that you were born and raised in. Nature, as well as nurture, has shaped you.”

    My environment, since conception, no more could have changed my racial characteristics than it could have changed me into a giant bug, a la Franz Kafka’s ‘Gregor Sansa’, or Vincent Price’s cinematic brother, ‘Andre Delambre’!

    “Regardless of the origins of the term, those who had supported this piece of legislation would be characterized in this manner by those proud members of the Coalition of the Right Fringe groups.”

    Although the term “social justice” had been around for decades, at least, there was no such term as “social-justice warrior,” in 1964, because there was no such phenomenon! The phenomenon was a later, prideful coinage of the Left, but has since been turned on its head by its enemies. The supporters of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 were mostly old-fashion liberals, both Democratic and Republican, with most opposition coming from Southern Democrats (i.e., segregationists). LBJ and Humbert Horatio Humphrey– let alone the Congressional Republicans, who voted for the new law with 80% or better in favor!– were anything but the type of “social-justice warriors” that now plague America, and the rest of the Eurosphere, since the pernicious ideology of radical egalitarianism has eclipsed Christianity as the guiding ethos of Western societies:

    Cf., Robert Burns….

    White neighborhoods were kept that way, back in the day, through restrictive covenants– until the Supreme Court ruled that it would be unconstitutional for the Courts to uphold them (as opposed to the agreements then being illegal per se). Your hypothetical White family would have bought that house with the restrictive covenant a known part of the terms of sale. Ergo, that family’s rights of free association were not infringed when it (hypothetically) wished to sell the house to a “Negro family” (as they were then known, in polite and mixed company). It was that Supreme Court decision that limited property rights– not the upended system of restrictive covenants.

    “Thank you for your excerpt of a Fake News Story.”

    This one [infra]?

    It is not a story– other than in the sense that it is essentially, and patently, untrue!– let alone a news story; but, then again, neither are most of the supposed “fake news stories” now being demonized by the apparatchiks of the Establishment propaganda media (EPM) who laughably call themselves journalists.

    “Companies are able to routinely sift through application forms and focus on interviewing and hiring prospective employees who are other than white.”

    Organizations now are required by law to attain and maintain a workforce without a so-called “disparate impact” evidencing “discrimination” (i.e., insufficiently equal results) against any protected group– even when an organization’s methods are designed and applied in a facially non-discriminatatory fashion. Even the Conspicuously Negrophilic Network– CNN– has just been hit with a class-action lawsuit, claiming that it has been systematically discriminating against its own Black employees since (at least) 1997. “Shame!”

    “I did not request, nor care, about your alleged accomplishments. Fishing for compliments?”

    If I had wanted compliments (from others), I would have cited my actual scores on all of those tests (plus the GRE subject test in Psychology, which I took on the afternoon of that same Saturday, thirty-seven years ago this very day). I merely was demonstrating my willingness to accommodate your challenge as to whether I need to “project” that for which I accuse others. [HINT: I do not!]

    “Glad to oblige.”

    Merely demonstrating, further, the anti-social pathology that finds its natural expression in left-wing ideology, politics and on-line commenting.

    “A great example here of virtue signalling.”

    Merely demonstrating that you have no understanding of the term’s proper meaning and usage.

    “Exactly why I made reference to this ‘good whites’ vs. ‘bad whites’ narrative. The elites are not seeking to destroy their own kind. Talk about silliness on a grand scale.”

    Your own preternatural denseness is hereby duly noted. Elite Whites do not see the White masses as “their own kind.” They see other elites, on a global scale, as “their own kind.” Elite Whites are ideologically deracinated– and, indeed, that is their single greatest pride in their own supposed superiority to the White masses! It is the elite’s own version of being “born-again,” and thus newly untainted of America’s, and the entire West’s, supposed “Original Sin” of “Racism.”

    “American whites such as myself are able to make their own racial decisions without being badgered. Remember, immigrants built our country, those who came here willingly and those who came here by force.”

    It remains unclear to me, and I assume to the others, here, reading your regularly regurgitated drivel, just what “racial decisions” there are for you to make!?! If you actually are White, then you are stuck being White, no matter what delusions you might have to the contrary– unless, of course, you are of North African or Middle Eastern descent, in which case you might be transmogrified, come 2020, into an “oppressed person of color,” depending upon what “Another Hitler” has his Bureau of the Census do, between now and then!?!?!

    As for immigrants, we are approaching a peak of the portion of the country that is composed of immigrants, or even of “immigrant stock” (i.e., immigrants plus their native-born American children), yet they still comprise a smallish minority of the country, and even a decided minority of its working-age population. At most other times, over these past 240 years, the relative size of the immigrant stock had been far smaller. The notion that “immigrants built our country” is a ludicrous conceit, on their part, and a ludicrous canard, on yours.

    For the record, those brought to this country “by force” (by whom, I have to assume, you are referring to African slaves) already were enslaved by their fellow Africans, before being bartered away to middlemen, who then imported them to the United States. The proportion of the slaves traded out of Africa who actually were imported into the United States, between July 4, 1776 and December 31, 1807 (after which it became illegal), was tiny, when compared to the rest of the Americas, let alone to the entirety of the world’s overall slave trade, during that brief time period. (Indentured servants did not come “by force” to America, of course, since their indentures were given in return for their being transported here– a trip which they desired, but otherwise were incapable of financing.)

    “If you are going to take the credit for these accomplishments, then best be able to critically look in the mirror and recognize that European greatness came with a high-price to those nations lucky enough to have been graced with their presence.”

    I have to assume that by “these accomplishments” you are referring to my claim that “we [Whites] perform better than certain other demographic groupings [e.g., Blacks, Hispanics and Amerindians] do, on almost every intellectual, academic and occupational measure known to man.” Since I attribute those “accomplishments” overwhelmingly to our [White] advantages [over the referred to "groupings"] crafted by human evolution itself, I do not do any excessive mirror- or navel-gazing on the subject. “It is what it is,” as Roger Clemens’ erstwhile friend and athletic trainer once noted.

    As for the results of the Age of Discovery and the colonial period in European and American history, I think that we clearly got the short end of the stick– and no gratitude, into the bargain! Good luck finding a Black or Amerindian (including Hispanics) who would voluntarily leave us evil Whites, and the societies that we have created around the world, behind, to go to live in the types of societies that their own ancestors had created, prior to European, and later American, colonialism. Just for starters, it is estimated by social scientists that about one quarter of all adult males in primitive societies died violent, premature deaths, due either to warfare or homicide. Not even Blacks in my own old haunts– such as Gary, New Orleans and Baltimore– would likely accede to those sort of odds!?!

    You could have avoided your shenanigans from the jump by simply stating “Yes, I believe women ought to have careers and be independent while being a wife and mother” or “No, I believe women should assume the tradition role of being a stay at home mom and let the man be the breadwinner”.

    “Since most of my old girlfriends, along with most of my other female friends and acquaintances from my post-baccalaureate years (ages 21-32), became either credentialed professionals or white-collar managers– with most of those old girlfriends now millionaires, in their own right…”

    Boasting about your past lovers to strangers is unbecoming. Regardless, your support for women to exercise their liberty to have a career runs counter to a number of white people who believe the white race will only survive if more white women get married and have children at the expense of college and employment. Looks like you have some explaining to do with your posse.

    “Although the term “social justice” had been around for decades, at least, there was no such term as “social-justice warrior,” in 1964, because there was no such phenomenon!”

    The origins of SJW come directly from the Beatniks of the 1950’s and the Hippies of the 1960’s. Those who supported racial integration and environmentalism in those decades would be labeled in that fashion today.

    “The Kansas City (MO) School District judicial experiment of the mid-1980s, et seq., shows precisely what would have happened if “separate but equal” accommodations had been provided to southern Blacks, in the deep recesses of American history, to your subsequent satisfaction (as to process and funding):”

    No, it shows exactly the devastation that Jim Crow laws had on white-black achievement gaps in education and its resonating impact. Southern states made other than an honest effort during Reconstruction to ensure a quality education for newly freed slaves. Rather, blacks endured decades of neglect when it came to funding, quality of instruction, and infrastructure. Do you deny this fact?

    A 14-year program would certainly not adequately address the deep-rooted problems that had been baked into the cake since Reconstruction. Moreover, the point of the author was making that it takes more than money to break the cycle of poverty. Next time, refer to the source’s conclusion for a more thoroughly understanding of the issue.

    “Your hypothetical White family would have bought that house with the restrictive covenant a known part of the terms of sale. Ergo, that family’s rights of free association were not infringed when it (hypothetically) wished to sell the house to a “Negro family” (as they were then known, in polite and mixed company).”

    No, as I correctly stated earlier, not all white people in the neighborhood had signed that restrictive covenant. They had refused to enter that agreement. Thus, they were not bound to it. Moreover, in this particular case, freedom of association means that an individual is able to decide whether or not that contract serves their best interest from a home owner’s perspective. Clearly, had this white family personally desired to sell the home to any family of their own choosing, including a black family, they are not obligated to carry out its intentions.

    “This one [infra]?”

    You called Gould “moronic” and “malignant” and a “scientific charlatan”. You are certainly entitled to your opinion when labeling his positions. But declaring this characterization as absolute fact is essentially a Fake News Story.

    “I merely was demonstrating my willingness to accommodate your challenge as to whether I need to “project” that for which I accuse others.”

    No, you were needlessly touting your achievements to raise your level of self-esteem. As I correctly stated earlier, it’s unbecoming.

    “Merely demonstrating that you have no understanding of the term’s proper meaning and usage.”

    It is abundantly clear you were virtue signaling—you were expressing viewpoints that are especially valued within a social group while enhancing your social standing through your alleged accomplishments.

    “Elite Whites do not see the White masses as “their own kind.” They see other elites, on a global scale, as “their own kind.” Elite Whites are ideologically deracinated– and, indeed, that is their single greatest pride in their own supposed superiority to the White masses!.”



    Have Elite Whites made those exact sentiments you attribute known to the white masses, or are you assuming that they feel this way given your own confirmation biases and projections?

    Now, by your own metric, you fall into that category as an Elite White, one who touts their own superior whiteness over whites such as myself who dares to criticize your racial policies. Would it not appear that those whites who adhere to your ideology are also “your own kind” and those whites who oppose your beliefs are on the "outside looking in"?

    “For the record, those brought to this country “by force” (by whom, I have to assume, you are referring to African slaves) already were enslaved by their fellow Africans, before being bartered away to middlemen, who then imported them to the United States. “

    Yes, I am familiar with the fact that blacks enslaved blacks and sold them. Regardless of how they gained that status, they were held against their will. They did not willingly choose to become slaves. Africans were forced to be transported to an unfamiliar place, forced to work for no wages in brutal conditions. Those are facts.

    “The proportion of the slaves traded out of Africa who actually were imported into the United States, between July 4, 1776 and December 31, 1807 (after which it became illegal), was tiny…”

    Irrelevant. The fact remains Africans came to the United States against their free will.

    “The notion that “immigrants built our country” is a ludicrous conceit, on their part, and a ludicrous canard, on yours.”

    No, what is ludicrous is to deny the observable fact that immigrants helped to construct this country. Men like Andrew Carnegie, for example.

    “Since I attribute those “accomplishments” overwhelmingly to our [White] advantages [over the referred to "groupings"] crafted by human evolution itself…”

    Corrected for accuracy—The accomplishments of human beings is on a spectrum due to a joint effort of genetics and environmental conditions. The achievements of our current society is due to past and present efforts by other civilizations.

    “Just for starters, it is estimated by social scientists that about one quarter of all adult males in primitive societies died violent, premature deaths, due either to warfare or homicide.”

    Europeans were invariably part of those “primitive societies”. Moreover, perhaps those “inferior” groups of people would have preferred to been left alone rather than be raped and plundered by supposedly “superior” groups of people. But, it’s in the DNA of Europeans to create and destroy.

    Yes, yes--under Batista Cuba was surely the very tallest of the Empire's Lillaputians, jeje.

    And that only for the top ten percent at best.

    Even some gusanos admit the notable success of the literacy program in Castro's Cuba, and then (in one's experience) explain it as inherent in the Cuban culture. Which even may be true to an extent but for the partisans of Batista and the later gusanos it never included the campesinos working for a few cents a day for the US imperialists, did it?

    I challenged you to find anything that I have written on this Web site-- now totaling well over 200,000 words-- to support what you said earlier. Failing to do so, you return, instead, to building crude strawmen-- the supposed opinions, unquoted, of other Whites, unnamed and uncited-- and then trying, pathetically, to tar me as just another one of them, despite all evidence to the contrary. You are redolent of the proverbial dog, returning to its own vomit. If what you claim about yourself is true-- i.e., that you, too, are an American male of indigenous-European descent-- then the Whites that you are forever bemoaning are your racial brethren, too.

    Since most of my old girlfriends, along with most of my other female friends and acquaintances from my post-baccalaureate years (ages 21-32), became either credentialed professionals or white-collar managers-- with most of those old girlfriends now millionaires, in their own right (i.e., not including their husbands' earnings and wealth, if any)-- the laughable conceit of your stupid question, quoted by me immediately above, should be self-evident, now, to all other readers of this comment thread, if not to a true-believing anti-racist such as you, living within an ideological delusion in lieu of real life.

    "Left-wing politics supports social equality and egalitarianism, often in opposition to social hierarchy and social inequality. Liberalism shares these sentiments."

    IDEOLOGY = THEOLOGY - DIVINITY

    Only totalitarian terror can be employed in the futile attempt to make people and things equal that are inherently unequal. Liberalism is merely a philosophy, like Conservatism, and does not require totalitarianism or terror, because its goal is not Utopian. It is not about equality of end states; it is about equality of treatment, for things that are alike, and discrimination, in its non-pejorative sense, for things that are not alike. The open-mindedness and genuine tolerance that is characteristic of Liberalism is anathema to ideologues, at whichever end of the spectrum.

    During the death struggle between left-wing totalitarianism and right-wing totalitarianism, in the previous century, Liberalism (as it was rightly understood, then, as opposed to the euphemism for Leftism that it has become, since) was the common enemy of both the Left and the Right, for it was the philosophy that underpinned modern nation-states, having replaced monarchial rule based upon the supposed Divine Right of Kings (or Queens).

    "As well as the environment that you were born and raised in. Nature, as well as nurture, has shaped you."

    My environment, since conception, no more could have changed my racial characteristics than it could have changed me into a giant bug, a la Franz Kafka's 'Gregor Sansa', or Vincent Price's cinematic brother, 'Andre Delambre'!

    "Regardless of the origins of the term, those who had supported this piece of legislation would be characterized in this manner by those proud members of the Coalition of the Right Fringe groups."

    Although the term "social justice" had been around for decades, at least, there was no such term as "social-justice warrior," in 1964, because there was no such phenomenon! The phenomenon was a later, prideful coinage of the Left, but has since been turned on its head by its enemies. The supporters of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 were mostly old-fashion liberals, both Democratic and Republican, with most opposition coming from Southern Democrats (i.e., segregationists). LBJ and Humbert Horatio Humphrey-- let alone the Congressional Republicans, who voted for the new law with 80% or better in favor!-- were anything but the type of "social-justice warriors" that now plague America, and the rest of the Eurosphere, since the pernicious ideology of radical egalitarianism has eclipsed Christianity as the guiding ethos of Western societies:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_Rights_Act_of_1964#Vote_totals

    "Had the South honored the Justices ruling in the Plessy case regarding 'separate but equal', perhaps federal intervention to ensure the liberties of all citizens would have been averted. Clearly, blacks during the Jim Crow era were treated other than political equals. The right of whites to openly and freely associate with blacks in the South was assaulted through legal and social sanction. If a white family sought to sell a house to a black family in an exclusively white neighborhood, their personal freedom to engage in such conduct was deemed illegal and immoral. Thus the CRA ensured that state sponsored action of abridging federal citizenship in such vile undertakings would be obliterated."

    The Kansas City (MO) School District judicial experiment of the mid-1980s, et seq., shows precisely what would have happened if "separate but equal" accommodations had been provided to southern Blacks, in the deep recesses of American history, to your subsequent satisfaction (as to process and funding):

    https://www.cato.org/pubs/pas/pa-298.html

    Cf., Robert Burns....

    White neighborhoods were kept that way, back in the day, through restrictive covenants-- until the Supreme Court ruled that it would be unconstitutional for the Courts to uphold them (as opposed to the agreements then being illegal per se). Your hypothetical White family would have bought that house with the restrictive covenant a known part of the terms of sale. Ergo, that family's rights of free association were not infringed when it (hypothetically) wished to sell the house to a "Negro family" (as they were then known, in polite and mixed company). It was that Supreme Court decision that limited property rights-- not the upended system of restrictive covenants.

    "Thank you for your excerpt of a Fake News Story."

    This one [infra]?

    https://www.scribd.com/doc/18185121/Human-Equality-Is-a-Contingent-Fact-of-History

    It is not a story-- other than in the sense that it is essentially, and patently, untrue!-- let alone a news story; but, then again, neither are most of the supposed "fake news stories" now being demonized by the apparatchiks of the Establishment propaganda media (EPM) who laughably call themselves journalists.

    "Companies are able to routinely sift through application forms and focus on interviewing and hiring prospective employees who are other than white."

    Organizations now are required by law to attain and maintain a workforce without a so-called "disparate impact" evidencing "discrimination" (i.e., insufficiently equal results) against any protected group-- even when an organization's methods are designed and applied in a facially non-discriminatatory fashion. Even the Conspicuously Negrophilic Network-- CNN-- has just been hit with a class-action lawsuit, claiming that it has been systematically discriminating against its own Black employees since (at least) 1997. "Shame!"

    "I did not request, nor care, about your alleged accomplishments. Fishing for compliments?"

    If I had wanted compliments (from others), I would have cited my actual scores on all of those tests (plus the GRE subject test in Psychology, which I took on the afternoon of that same Saturday, thirty-seven years ago this very day). I merely was demonstrating my willingness to accommodate your challenge as to whether I need to "project" that for which I accuse others. [HINT: I do not!]

    "Glad to oblige."

    Merely demonstrating, further, the anti-social pathology that finds its natural expression in left-wing ideology, politics and on-line commenting.

    "A great example here of virtue signalling."

    Merely demonstrating that you have no understanding of the term's proper meaning and usage.

    "Exactly why I made reference to this 'good whites' vs. 'bad whites' narrative. The elites are not seeking to destroy their own kind. Talk about silliness on a grand scale."

    Your own preternatural denseness is hereby duly noted. Elite Whites do not see the White masses as "their own kind." They see other elites, on a global scale, as "their own kind." Elite Whites are ideologically deracinated-- and, indeed, that is their single greatest pride in their own supposed superiority to the White masses! It is the elite's own version of being "born-again," and thus newly untainted of America's, and the entire West's, supposed "Original Sin" of "Racism."

    "American whites such as myself are able to make their own racial decisions without being badgered. Remember, immigrants built our country, those who came here willingly and those who came here by force."

    It remains unclear to me, and I assume to the others, here, reading your regularly regurgitated drivel, just what "racial decisions" there are for you to make!?! If you actually are White, then you are stuck being White, no matter what delusions you might have to the contrary-- unless, of course, you are of North African or Middle Eastern descent, in which case you might be transmogrified, come 2020, into an "oppressed person of color," depending upon what "Another Hitler" has his Bureau of the Census do, between now and then!?!?!

    As for immigrants, we are approaching a peak of the portion of the country that is composed of immigrants, or even of "immigrant stock" (i.e., immigrants plus their native-born American children), yet they still comprise a smallish minority of the country, and even a decided minority of its working-age population. At most other times, over these past 240 years, the relative size of the immigrant stock had been far smaller. The notion that "immigrants built our country" is a ludicrous conceit, on their part, and a ludicrous canard, on yours.

    For the record, those brought to this country "by force" (by whom, I have to assume, you are referring to African slaves) already were enslaved by their fellow Africans, before being bartered away to middlemen, who then imported them to the United States. The proportion of the slaves traded out of Africa who actually were imported into the United States, between July 4, 1776 and December 31, 1807 (after which it became illegal), was tiny, when compared to the rest of the Americas, let alone to the entirety of the world's overall slave trade, during that brief time period. (Indentured servants did not come "by force" to America, of course, since their indentures were given in return for their being transported here-- a trip which they desired, but otherwise were incapable of financing.)

    "If you are going to take the credit for these accomplishments, then best be able to critically look in the mirror and recognize that European greatness came with a high-price to those nations lucky enough to have been graced with their presence."

    I have to assume that by "these accomplishments" you are referring to my claim that "we [Whites] perform better than certain other demographic groupings [e.g., Blacks, Hispanics and Amerindians] do, on almost every intellectual, academic and occupational measure known to man.” Since I attribute those "accomplishments" overwhelmingly to our [White] advantages [over the referred to "groupings"] crafted by human evolution itself, I do not do any excessive mirror- or navel-gazing on the subject. "It is what it is," as Roger Clemens' erstwhile friend and athletic trainer once noted.

    As for the results of the Age of Discovery and the colonial period in European and American history, I think that we clearly got the short end of the stick-- and no gratitude, into the bargain! Good luck finding a Black or Amerindian (including Hispanics) who would voluntarily leave us evil Whites, and the societies that we have created around the world, behind, to go to live in the types of societies that their own ancestors had created, prior to European, and later American, colonialism. Just for starters, it is estimated by social scientists that about one quarter of all adult males in primitive societies died violent, premature deaths, due either to warfare or homicide. Not even Blacks in my own old haunts-- such as Gary, New Orleans and Baltimore-- would likely accede to those sort of odds!?!

    “I challenged you to find anything that I have written on this Web site– now totaling well over 200,000 words– to support what you said earlier. Failing to do so, you return, instead, to building crude strawmen– the supposed opinions, unquoted, of other Whites, unnamed and uncited– and then trying, pathetically, to tar me as just another one of them, despite all evidence to the contrary.”


    You could have avoided your shenanigans from the jump by simply stating “Yes, I believe women ought to have careers and be independent while being a wife and mother” or “No, I believe women should assume the tradition role of being a stay at home mom and let the man be the breadwinner”.

    “Since most of my old girlfriends, along with most of my other female friends and acquaintances from my post-baccalaureate years (ages 21-32), became either credentialed professionals or white-collar managers– with most of those old girlfriends now millionaires, in their own right…”

    Boasting about your past lovers to strangers is unbecoming. Regardless, your support for women to exercise their liberty to have a career runs counter to a number of white people who believe the white race will only survive if more white women get married and have children at the expense of college and employment. Looks like you have some explaining to do with your posse.

    “Although the term “social justice” had been around for decades, at least, there was no such term as “social-justice warrior,” in 1964, because there was no such phenomenon!”

    The origins of SJW come directly from the Beatniks of the 1950’s and the Hippies of the 1960’s. Those who supported racial integration and environmentalism in those decades would be labeled in that fashion today.

    “The Kansas City (MO) School District judicial experiment of the mid-1980s, et seq., shows precisely what would have happened if “separate but equal” accommodations had been provided to southern Blacks, in the deep recesses of American history, to your subsequent satisfaction (as to process and funding):”

    No, it shows exactly the devastation that Jim Crow laws had on white-black achievement gaps in education and its resonating impact. Southern states made other than an honest effort during Reconstruction to ensure a quality education for newly freed slaves. Rather, blacks endured decades of neglect when it came to funding, quality of instruction, and infrastructure. Do you deny this fact?

    A 14-year program would certainly not adequately address the deep-rooted problems that had been baked into the cake since Reconstruction. Moreover, the point of the author was making that it takes more than money to break the cycle of poverty. Next time, refer to the source’s conclusion for a more thoroughly understanding of the issue.

    “Your hypothetical White family would have bought that house with the restrictive covenant a known part of the terms of sale. Ergo, that family’s rights of free association were not infringed when it (hypothetically) wished to sell the house to a “Negro family” (as they were then known, in polite and mixed company).”

    No, as I correctly stated earlier, not all white people in the neighborhood had signed that restrictive covenant. They had refused to enter that agreement. Thus, they were not bound to it. Moreover, in this particular case, freedom of association means that an individual is able to decide whether or not that contract serves their best interest from a home owner’s perspective. Clearly, had this white family personally desired to sell the home to any family of their own choosing, including a black family, they are not obligated to carry out its intentions.

    “This one [infra]?”

    You called Gould “moronic” and “malignant” and a “scientific charlatan”. You are certainly entitled to your opinion when labeling his positions. But declaring this characterization as absolute fact is essentially a Fake News Story.

    “I merely was demonstrating my willingness to accommodate your challenge as to whether I need to “project” that for which I accuse others.”

    No, you were needlessly touting your achievements to raise your level of self-esteem. As I correctly stated earlier, it’s unbecoming.

    “Merely demonstrating that you have no understanding of the term’s proper meaning and usage.”

    It is abundantly clear you were virtue signaling—you were expressing viewpoints that are especially valued within a social group while enhancing your social standing through your alleged accomplishments.

    “Elite Whites do not see the White masses as “their own kind.” They see other elites, on a global scale, as “their own kind.” Elite Whites are ideologically deracinated– and, indeed, that is their single greatest pride in their own supposed superiority to the White masses!.”



    Have Elite Whites made those exact sentiments you attribute known to the white masses, or are you assuming that they feel this way given your own confirmation biases and projections?

    Now, by your own metric, you fall into that category as an Elite White, one who touts their own superior whiteness over whites such as myself who dares to criticize your racial policies. Would it not appear that those whites who adhere to your ideology are also “your own kind” and those whites who oppose your beliefs are on the “outside looking in”?

    “For the record, those brought to this country “by force” (by whom, I have to assume, you are referring to African slaves) already were enslaved by their fellow Africans, before being bartered away to middlemen, who then imported them to the United States. “

    Yes, I am familiar with the fact that blacks enslaved blacks and sold them. Regardless of how they gained that status, they were held against their will. They did not willingly choose to become slaves. Africans were forced to be transported to an unfamiliar place, forced to work for no wages in brutal conditions. Those are facts.

    “The proportion of the slaves traded out of Africa who actually were imported into the United States, between July 4, 1776 and December 31, 1807 (after which it became illegal), was tiny…”

    Irrelevant. The fact remains Africans came to the United States against their free will.

    “The notion that “immigrants built our country” is a ludicrous conceit, on their part, and a ludicrous canard, on yours.”

    No, what is ludicrous is to deny the observable fact that immigrants helped to construct this country. Men like Andrew Carnegie, for example.

    “Since I attribute those “accomplishments” overwhelmingly to our [White] advantages [over the referred to "groupings"] crafted by human evolution itself…”

    Corrected for accuracy—The accomplishments of human beings is on a spectrum due to a joint effort of genetics and environmental conditions. The achievements of our current society is due to past and present efforts by other civilizations.

    “Just for starters, it is estimated by social scientists that about one quarter of all adult males in primitive societies died violent, premature deaths, due either to warfare or homicide.”

    Europeans were invariably part of those “primitive societies”. Moreover, perhaps those “inferior” groups of people would have preferred to been left alone rather than be raped and plundered by supposedly “superior” groups of people. But, it’s in the DNA of Europeans to create and destroy.

    I have not played Shenanigans since the days of Stubby Kaye:

    http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/3713/shenanigans-game

    Regardless, why would I humor you by addressing your strawman argument that has nothing to do with anything that Ms. Mercer, 'Diversity Heretic' (to whom you originally replied) or I (in reply to your initial reply) had written? What woman cares what I think about what she should do or not do, once she is married-with-children? Why in the world do you care what I think about what women should or should not do, once they are married-with-children?

    "Boasting about your past lovers to strangers is unbecoming.

Looks like you have some explaining to do with your posse."

    If I wanted to boast to some pseudonymous asshole on-line about my old girlfriends, it would not be about how rich any of them got, after parting ways with me. (I assume that you do not have any old girlfriends....) Why are Whites who have views that I do not happen to share, and that you, as a mindless Leftist, are required to hate, "[my] posse," rather than yours? You claim to be a White man, too, do you not?!?

    "The origins of SJW come directly from the Beatniks of the 1950’s and the Hippies of the 1960’s. Those who supported racial integration and environmentalism in those decades would be labeled in that fashion today."

    Find me an actual citation of the actual use of the actual phrase "social-justice warrior" (or use of the acronym "SJW" to connote that phrase, rather than "single Jewish woman") from the 1950s, or even the 1960s. The phenomenon of "social-justice warriors" is not about holding "liberal" views about "racial integration and environmentalism;" it is about the behavior exhibited by latter-day Leftists against those who hold or express any politically incorrect opinions, or anyone who simply makes a joke that some young asshole like you finds "insensitive" or "problematic."

    "No, it shows exactly the devastation that Jim Crow laws had on white-black achievement gaps in education and its resonating impact.

    Yes, son, I deny your "fact," because it is counterfactual. During the Reconstruction Era of 1865-1877, the former Confederate states were run largely by northern carpetbaggers-- along with hundreds of freed slaves! The Confederate rebels had lost the franchise. Regardless, the first state to have compulsory education was Massachusetts, in 1852. By 1870, only Vermont and the District of Columbia had joined it. As for the South, Tennessee went first-- in 1905! Mississippi drew up the rear, in 1918. In other words, you do not know what the hell you are talking about, youngster! Try this:

    Funny, but Ms. Mercer's and Dr. Katz' people did not seem to have any great trouble overcoming thousands of years of sometimes-violent anti-Semitism and getting up to speed, once they hit the Lower East Side's public schools, during the Great Wave of Mass Immigration!?! Perhaps that has something to do with the relative IQ distributions of Black Americans and Jewish Americans, rather than with "deep-rooted problems that had been baked into the cake," eh? Or, do you have a more Occamite explanation for why Black SAT test-takers from the wealthiest Black families beat White SAT test-takers from the poorest White families by only three points, on average, on the older, two-part SAT?!?

    That was your complete response to the line of mine that you had quoted: "“The Act clearly abridges Americans’ right to free association in employment and housing, inter alia.” You said nothing, at that time, about "not all white people in the neighborhood had signed that restrictive covenant. They had refused to enter that agreement. Thus, they were not bound to it." Stop lying, when what you wrote previously is still sitting there in cyberspace, just a click of a mouse or a flick of a finger away from your newest lie, for everyone here to see! On top of it, you evince not the slightest grasp of the actual principles of Contract Law.

    "You called Gould 'moronic' and 'malignant' and a 'scientific charlatan'. You are certainly entitled to your opinion when labeling his positions. But declaring this characterization as absolute fact is essentially a Fake News Story."

    More lies! I called the concept of "disparate impact," as applied by the courts in discrimination cases, "moronic and malignant." I then called the "belief in human equality as 'a contingent fact of history'" the same. I did not say that Professor Gould himself, as a person, was "moronic and malignant." As for my calling him a "scientific charlatan":

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/14/science/14skull.html

    You progbots are mouthing the "Fake News Story" meme as if you were programmed by the same person as Marco Rubio, last winter!?! At a minimum, a "Fake News Story" would have to purport to be a REAL NEWS STORY-- you know, "Who, What, Where, When, Why and How," along with a byline, a dateline, and the additional imprimaturs of a REAL NEWS STORY?!? Opinion columns are not "Fake News." Blog posts are not "Fake News." Comments in response to either are not "Fake News." "Dewey Defeats Truman" was "Fake News."

    "No, you were needlessly touting your achievements to raise your level of self-esteem. As I correctly stated earlier, it’s unbecoming."

    "[S]elf-esteem" is the Holy Grail of the Cult of Psychotherapy. If I were looking to raise my self-esteem by bragging on-line, I would need to do so using my full name, rather than just my given initials. Believe me, I do not consider my being smarter and better-educated than you anything to write home about, if my mother were still alive to read my letters home. When I want advice on becoming becoming, I will not be asking an emasculated and deracinated specimen like you.

    "It is abundantly clear you were virtue signaling—you were expressing viewpoints that are especially valued within a social group while enhancing your social standing through your alleged accomplishments."

    I repeat: “Merely demonstrating that you have no understanding of the term’s proper meaning and usage.”

    "Have Elite Whites made those exact sentiments you attribute known to the white masses, or are you assuming that they feel this way given your own confirmation biases and projections?

    "Now, by your own metric, you fall into that category as an Elite White, one who touts their own superior whiteness over whites such as myself who dares to criticize your racial policies. Would it not appear that those whites who adhere to your ideology are also 'your own kind' and those whites who oppose your beliefs are on the 'outside looking in'?"

    I am not assuming anything; I am observing, as I have been doing since the first Kennedy-Nixon debate. I have no confirmation biases and projections. I am not a Freudian cultist. As Richard Starkey, qua 'Ringo Starr', said to Leo McKern, qua 'Clang', in "HELP!" (1965): "GET SACRIFICED! I DON'T SUBSCRIBE TO YOUR RELIGION!"

    For the record, I do not believe that my "whiteness" is superior to yours; I merely know that my mind is superior to yours-- as are my knowledge base and my grasp of reality. What are our respective racial policies, by the way? You keep alluding to them, but never delineating them. In the words of Sir Paul McCartney: "Very strange!" As for theology, so for ideology: I have none, because I need none. What is it that you feel that you are on the outside looking in at, as a result of my not sharing your delusional left-wing beliefs?

    "Yes, I am familiar with the fact that blacks enslaved blacks and sold them. Regardless of how they gained that status, they were held against their will. They did not willingly choose to become slaves. Africans were forced to be transported to an unfamiliar place, forced to work for no wages in brutal conditions. Those are facts."

    No, those are not the facts. Slaves were generally treated well, because they represented long-term economic investments. It was the indentured servant who was far more likely to be casually brutalized, since his servitude was of limited duration anyway. The slave owners would have been better off importing cheap, disposable labor, as was done during the Irish potato famine, the Great Wave and, now again, in the post-1965 immigration disaster. A slave owner had to buy or breed his slaves. In the latter case, he had to wait years to get any appreciable return on his investment. In either case, he had to feed them, clothe them, shelter them, train them, secure them, treat them, and then take care of them, after retirement or a disabling injury, for the duration. Today's plutocrats are exponentially better off, with society paying for their cheap-labor imports.

    "Irrelevant. The fact remains Africans came to the United States against their free will."

    So did millions of children and dependent spouses. Anyway, as I said before, they were already slaves; if they had not been sold to slavers, at the coast, they just would have been executed. In the words of Don McLean: "What we don't sell, we shoot or give away...."

    "No, what is ludicrous is to deny the observable fact that immigrants helped to construct this country. Men like Andrew Carnegie, for example."

    Here, again, is what you actually said, the previous time: "Remember, immigrants built our country, those who came here willingly and those who came here by force." Damn white of them!

    "Corrected for accuracy—The accomplishments of human beings is on a spectrum due to a joint effort of genetics and environmental conditions. The achievements of our current society is due to past and present efforts by other civilizations."

    The three other civilizations upon which American Civilization was built were the Classical Greeks, the Ancient Romans (both pagan and Christian), and the British, who founded the United States. All were White; all are now demonized as the epitome of genocidal evil, in contrast to their innocent victims of color.

    When America ceases to be a predominantly European nation-- which, thankfully, should be after I am dead and buried at sea-- it will cease to be America, just as my former hometown of L.A. has ceased to be American, and my subsequent hometown of New York City is well on its way to the same fate. When I was a boy in Gary, it was a mixed, blue-color industrial city; now it is a Black hole. When I was a boy in Gary, Chicago was a working-class and middle-class city full of ethnics from throughout Europe. Now, it is divided between White plutocrats, Brown peons, and Black ghetto-dwellers. The middle-class ethnics have been squeezed out of their own hometown. Fools like you, spouting social-justice jargon and slogans, think that you are doing the Lord's work, so as to speak; instead, you are just useful idiots for White plutocrats.

    "Europeans were invariably part of those 'primitive societies'. Moreover, perhaps those 'inferior' groups of people would have preferred to been left alone rather than be raped and plundered by supposedly 'superior' groups of people. But, it’s in the DNA of Europeans to create and destroy."

    My father's namesake co-founded East Hampton, Long Island. The mestizos whom you love are the descendants of the Europeans that did most all of the raping and plundering, in the New World. If you have a problem with the destructive side of European DNA, feel free to take it up with them, when they are not too busy driving drunk or chopping off heads as part of an MS-13 initiation rite. (At least they do not gang rape innocent White co-eds on broken glass in fraternity torture chambers, like blue-eyed, blond WASPS do at their sick, supremacist initiation rites, eh?)

    By the way, when is your next "racial decision" scheduled to be made?

    Multiculturalism is a gift that keeps on giving. Propaganda gift, that is. Invented in US in order to prevent possible communist takeover via radicalized blacks, more recently has been used for different purposes. Once US established its credentials as a non-racist country (multiculturalism being the main proof) it felt free to invade any third world country and unleash mayhem without being afraid of being called racist.

    In its most recent reincarnation, multiculturalism is simply a tool of oppression. It’s used by the ruling class against the majority (at the moment) in order to prevent a regime change at home.

    Democracy being the code word for Capitalism, Multiculturalism is used to prevent someone from coming with a bright idea to improve over what is already perfection – Democracy. You see Democracy is the highest achievement of social and economic order and any attempt to tamper with it is sacrilegious.

    The main mantra of Multiculturalism being: “We are all equal”, it was never meant to reach the upper echelons of society. When the ruling class says “We are all equal” they really mean - YOU are all equal – the members of the great unwashed.

    From their perspective (US elites) – the racial composition of the great unwashed really doesn’t matter, as long as they agree to be the targets of exploitation.

    Multiculturalism is really devious tool of oppression that only really truly evil capitalist mind can invent. If you try to fight that tool of oppression – you are racist – instant deflection of who really is the bad guy. And if you really persist and go after the really evil system that invented it – again you are the one who is evil, because why would anybody want to fight against such goodness like Democracy (Capitalism).

    The real short sightedness of the morons who invented Multiculturalism (US elites) lies in the fact that they believe that they can import third world multiculturalists indefinitely and that their positions as elites would be left untouched, because everybody else is equal but they are really grandiose and irreplaceable. Once the multiculturalists become majority, how long will it take for them to replace the elites who are exploiting them and who are of alien DNA with elites of their own DNA. But who can think that far ahead.

    Once US established its credentials as a non-racist country (multiculturalism being the main proof) it felt free to invade any third world country and unleash mayhem without being afraid of being called racist.

    An excellent point. US foreign policy has been in practice driven by an insane degree of xenophobia. Any country that is not thoroughly Americanised and totally subservient to the US is a dangerous enemy that must be destroyed. What makes the American Evil Empire so toxic is that this is combined with stupidity, naïveté and rampant hypocrisy.

    I’m not talking about ordinary Americans. I’m talking about the American elites who have been a menace to both the UDS and the world since the days of Woodrow Wilson.

    It's undeniable that Cuba was a jewel of Latin America and the Caribbean before the Castro era (error). TBF, the US kind of pushed him into the USSR's arms: the rebels initially weren't Marxists, but simply rebelling against oppressive and corrupt Batista regime.

    Yes, yes–under Batista Cuba was surely the very tallest of the Empire’s Lillaputians, jeje.

    And that only for the top ten percent at best.

    Even some gusanos admit the notable success of the literacy program in Castro’s Cuba, and then (in one’s experience) explain it as inherent in the Cuban culture. Which even may be true to an extent but for the partisans of Batista and the later gusanos it never included the campesinos working for a few cents a day for the US imperialists, did it?

    Nothing notable about it: you'll notice most of Latin America has had similar trend over the past 50 years. Cuba was a solidly middle class country before Castro, even NYT's Herbert Matthews (largely responsible for revolution's success) said this. Castro and his compadres were overwhelmingly from decent backgrounds, not starving peasants.

    “I challenged you to find anything that I have written on this Web site– now totaling well over 200,000 words– to support what you said earlier. Failing to do so, you return, instead, to building crude strawmen– the supposed opinions, unquoted, of other Whites, unnamed and uncited– and then trying, pathetically, to tar me as just another one of them, despite all evidence to the contrary.”


    You could have avoided your shenanigans from the jump by simply stating “Yes, I believe women ought to have careers and be independent while being a wife and mother” or “No, I believe women should assume the tradition role of being a stay at home mom and let the man be the breadwinner”.

    “Since most of my old girlfriends, along with most of my other female friends and acquaintances from my post-baccalaureate years (ages 21-32), became either credentialed professionals or white-collar managers– with most of those old girlfriends now millionaires, in their own right…”

    Boasting about your past lovers to strangers is unbecoming. Regardless, your support for women to exercise their liberty to have a career runs counter to a number of white people who believe the white race will only survive if more white women get married and have children at the expense of college and employment. Looks like you have some explaining to do with your posse.

    “Although the term “social justice” had been around for decades, at least, there was no such term as “social-justice warrior,” in 1964, because there was no such phenomenon!”

    The origins of SJW come directly from the Beatniks of the 1950’s and the Hippies of the 1960’s. Those who supported racial integration and environmentalism in those decades would be labeled in that fashion today.

    “The Kansas City (MO) School District judicial experiment of the mid-1980s, et seq., shows precisely what would have happened if “separate but equal” accommodations had been provided to southern Blacks, in the deep recesses of American history, to your subsequent satisfaction (as to process and funding):”

    No, it shows exactly the devastation that Jim Crow laws had on white-black achievement gaps in education and its resonating impact. Southern states made other than an honest effort during Reconstruction to ensure a quality education for newly freed slaves. Rather, blacks endured decades of neglect when it came to funding, quality of instruction, and infrastructure. Do you deny this fact?

    A 14-year program would certainly not adequately address the deep-rooted problems that had been baked into the cake since Reconstruction. Moreover, the point of the author was making that it takes more than money to break the cycle of poverty. Next time, refer to the source’s conclusion for a more thoroughly understanding of the issue.

    “Your hypothetical White family would have bought that house with the restrictive covenant a known part of the terms of sale. Ergo, that family’s rights of free association were not infringed when it (hypothetically) wished to sell the house to a “Negro family” (as they were then known, in polite and mixed company).”

    No, as I correctly stated earlier, not all white people in the neighborhood had signed that restrictive covenant. They had refused to enter that agreement. Thus, they were not bound to it. Moreover, in this particular case, freedom of association means that an individual is able to decide whether or not that contract serves their best interest from a home owner’s perspective. Clearly, had this white family personally desired to sell the home to any family of their own choosing, including a black family, they are not obligated to carry out its intentions.

    “This one [infra]?”

    You called Gould “moronic” and “malignant” and a “scientific charlatan”. You are certainly entitled to your opinion when labeling his positions. But declaring this characterization as absolute fact is essentially a Fake News Story.

    “I merely was demonstrating my willingness to accommodate your challenge as to whether I need to “project” that for which I accuse others.”

    No, you were needlessly touting your achievements to raise your level of self-esteem. As I correctly stated earlier, it’s unbecoming.

    “Merely demonstrating that you have no understanding of the term’s proper meaning and usage.”

    It is abundantly clear you were virtue signaling—you were expressing viewpoints that are especially valued within a social group while enhancing your social standing through your alleged accomplishments.

    “Elite Whites do not see the White masses as “their own kind.” They see other elites, on a global scale, as “their own kind.” Elite Whites are ideologically deracinated– and, indeed, that is their single greatest pride in their own supposed superiority to the White masses!.”



    Have Elite Whites made those exact sentiments you attribute known to the white masses, or are you assuming that they feel this way given your own confirmation biases and projections?

    Now, by your own metric, you fall into that category as an Elite White, one who touts their own superior whiteness over whites such as myself who dares to criticize your racial policies. Would it not appear that those whites who adhere to your ideology are also “your own kind” and those whites who oppose your beliefs are on the "outside looking in"?

    “For the record, those brought to this country “by force” (by whom, I have to assume, you are referring to African slaves) already were enslaved by their fellow Africans, before being bartered away to middlemen, who then imported them to the United States. “

    Yes, I am familiar with the fact that blacks enslaved blacks and sold them. Regardless of how they gained that status, they were held against their will. They did not willingly choose to become slaves. Africans were forced to be transported to an unfamiliar place, forced to work for no wages in brutal conditions. Those are facts.

    “The proportion of the slaves traded out of Africa who actually were imported into the United States, between July 4, 1776 and December 31, 1807 (after which it became illegal), was tiny…”

    Irrelevant. The fact remains Africans came to the United States against their free will.

    “The notion that “immigrants built our country” is a ludicrous conceit, on their part, and a ludicrous canard, on yours.”

    No, what is ludicrous is to deny the observable fact that immigrants helped to construct this country. Men like Andrew Carnegie, for example.

    “Since I attribute those “accomplishments” overwhelmingly to our [White] advantages [over the referred to "groupings"] crafted by human evolution itself…”

    Corrected for accuracy—The accomplishments of human beings is on a spectrum due to a joint effort of genetics and environmental conditions. The achievements of our current society is due to past and present efforts by other civilizations.

    “Just for starters, it is estimated by social scientists that about one quarter of all adult males in primitive societies died violent, premature deaths, due either to warfare or homicide.”

    Europeans were invariably part of those “primitive societies”. Moreover, perhaps those “inferior” groups of people would have preferred to been left alone rather than be raped and plundered by supposedly “superior” groups of people. But, it’s in the DNA of Europeans to create and destroy.

    “You could have avoided your shenanigans from the jump by simply stating ‘Yes, I believe women ought to have careers and be independent while being a wife and mother’ or ‘No, I believe women should assume the tradition role of being a stay at home mom and let the man be the breadwinner’.”

    I have not played Shenanigans since the days of Stubby Kaye:

    http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/3713/shenanigans-game

    Regardless, why would I humor you by addressing your strawman argument that has nothing to do with anything that Ms. Mercer, ‘Diversity Heretic’ (to whom you originally replied) or I (in reply to your initial reply) had written? What woman cares what I think about what she should do or not do, once she is married-with-children? Why in the world do you care what I think about what women should or should not do, once they are married-with-children?

    “Boasting about your past lovers to strangers is unbecoming. Regardless, your support for women to exercise their liberty to have a career runs counter to a number of white people who believe the white race will only survive if more white women get married and have children at the expense of college and employment. Looks like you have some explaining to do with your posse.”

    If I wanted to boast to some pseudonymous asshole on-line about my old girlfriends, it would not be about how rich any of them got, after parting ways with me. (I assume that you do not have any old girlfriends….) Why are Whites who have views that I do not happen to share, and that you, as a mindless Leftist, are required to hate, “[my] posse,” rather than yours? You claim to be a White man, too, do you not?!?

    “The origins of SJW come directly from the Beatniks of the 1950’s and the Hippies of the 1960’s. Those who supported racial integration and environmentalism in those decades would be labeled in that fashion today.”

    Find me an actual citation of the actual use of the actual phrase “social-justice warrior” (or use of the acronym “SJW” to connote that phrase, rather than “single Jewish woman”) from the 1950s, or even the 1960s. The phenomenon of “social-justice warriors” is not about holding “liberal” views about “racial integration and environmentalism;” it is about the behavior exhibited by latter-day Leftists against those who hold or express any politically incorrect opinions, or anyone who simply makes a joke that some young asshole like you finds “insensitive” or “problematic.”

    “No, it shows exactly the devastation that Jim Crow laws had on white-black achievement gaps in education and its resonating impact.

    Yes, son, I deny your “fact,” because it is counterfactual. During the Reconstruction Era of 1865-1877, the former Confederate states were run largely by northern carpetbaggers– along with hundreds of freed slaves! The Confederate rebels had lost the franchise. Regardless, the first state to have compulsory education was Massachusetts, in 1852. By 1870, only Vermont and the District of Columbia had joined it. As for the South, Tennessee went first– in 1905! Mississippi drew up the rear, in 1918. In other words, you do not know what the hell you are talking about, youngster! Try this:

    http://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/ED119389.pdf

    Funny, but Ms. Mercer’s and Dr. Katz’ people did not seem to have any great trouble overcoming thousands of years of sometimes-violent anti-Semitism and getting up to speed, once they hit the Lower East Side’s public schools, during the Great Wave of Mass Immigration!?! Perhaps that has something to do with the relative IQ distributions of Black Americans and Jewish Americans, rather than with “deep-rooted problems that had been baked into the cake,” eh? Or, do you have a more Occamite explanation for why Black SAT test-takers from the wealthiest Black families beat White SAT test-takers from the poorest White families by only three points, on average, on the older, two-part SAT?!?

    “No, as I correctly stated earlier, not all white people in the neighborhood had signed that restrictive covenant. They had refused to enter that agreement. Thus, they were not bound to it. Moreover, in this particular case, freedom of association means that an individual is able to decide whether or not that contract serves their best interest from a home owner’s perspective. Clearly, had this white family personally desired to sell the home to any family of their own choosing, including a black family, they are not obligated to carry out its intentions.”

    No, as you stated earlier [supra]: “Had the South honored the Justices ruling in the Plessy case regarding ‘separate but equal’, perhaps federal intervention to ensure the liberties of all citizens would have been averted. Clearly, blacks during the Jim Crow era were treated other than political equals. The right of whites to openly and freely associate with blacks in the South was assaulted through legal and social sanction. If a white family sought to sell a house to a black family in an exclusively white neighborhood, their personal freedom to engage in such conduct was deemed illegal and immoral. Thus the CRA ensured that state sponsored action of abridging federal citizenship in such vile undertakings would be obliterated.”

    That was your complete response to the line of mine that you had quoted: ““The Act clearly abridges Americans’ right to free association in employment and housing, inter alia.” You said nothing, at that time, about “not all white people in the neighborhood had signed that restrictive covenant. They had refused to enter that agreement. Thus, they were not bound to it.” Stop lying, when what you wrote previously is still sitting there in cyberspace, just a click of a mouse or a flick of a finger away from your newest lie, for everyone here to see! On top of it, you evince not the slightest grasp of the actual principles of Contract Law.

    “You called Gould ‘moronic’ and ‘malignant’ and a ‘scientific charlatan’. You are certainly entitled to your opinion when labeling his positions. But declaring this characterization as absolute fact is essentially a Fake News Story.”

    More lies! I called the concept of “disparate impact,” as applied by the courts in discrimination cases, “moronic and malignant.” I then called the “belief in human equality as ‘a contingent fact of history’” the same. I did not say that Professor Gould himself, as a person, was “moronic and malignant.” As for my calling him a “scientific charlatan”:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/14/science/14skull.html

    You progbots are mouthing the “Fake News Story” meme as if you were programmed by the same person as Marco Rubio, last winter!?! At a minimum, a “Fake News Story” would have to purport to be a REAL NEWS STORY– you know, “Who, What, Where, When, Why and How,” along with a byline, a dateline, and the additional imprimaturs of a REAL NEWS STORY?!? Opinion columns are not “Fake News.” Blog posts are not “Fake News.” Comments in response to either are not “Fake News.” “Dewey Defeats Truman” was “Fake News.”

    “No, you were needlessly touting your achievements to raise your level of self-esteem. As I correctly stated earlier, it’s unbecoming.”

    “[S]elf-esteem” is the Holy Grail of the Cult of Psychotherapy. If I were looking to raise my self-esteem by bragging on-line, I would need to do so using my full name, rather than just my given initials. Believe me, I do not consider my being smarter and better-educated than you anything to write home about, if my mother were still alive to read my letters home. When I want advice on becoming becoming, I will not be asking an emasculated and deracinated specimen like you.

    “It is abundantly clear you were virtue signaling—you were expressing viewpoints that are especially valued within a social group while enhancing your social standing through your alleged accomplishments.”

    I repeat: “Merely demonstrating that you have no understanding of the term’s proper meaning and usage.”

    “Have Elite Whites made those exact sentiments you attribute known to the white masses, or are you assuming that they feel this way given your own confirmation biases and projections?

    “Now, by your own metric, you fall into that category as an Elite White, one who touts their own superior whiteness over whites such as myself who dares to criticize your racial policies. Would it not appear that those whites who adhere to your ideology are also ‘your own kind’ and those whites who oppose your beliefs are on the ‘outside looking in’?”

    I am not assuming anything; I am observing, as I have been doing since the first Kennedy-Nixon debate. I have no confirmation biases and projections. I am not a Freudian cultist. As Richard Starkey, qua ‘Ringo Starr’, said to Leo McKern, qua ‘Clang’, in “HELP!” (1965): “GET SACRIFICED! I DON’T SUBSCRIBE TO YOUR RELIGION!”

    For the record, I do not believe that my “whiteness” is superior to yours; I merely know that my mind is superior to yours– as are my knowledge base and my grasp of reality. What are our respective racial policies, by the way? You keep alluding to them, but never delineating them. In the words of Sir Paul McCartney: “Very strange!” As for theology, so for ideology: I have none, because I need none. What is it that you feel that you are on the outside looking in at, as a result of my not sharing your delusional left-wing beliefs?

    “Yes, I am familiar with the fact that blacks enslaved blacks and sold them. Regardless of how they gained that status, they were held against their will. They did not willingly choose to become slaves. Africans were forced to be transported to an unfamiliar place, forced to work for no wages in brutal conditions. Those are facts.”

    No, those are not the facts. Slaves were generally treated well, because they represented long-term economic investments. It was the indentured servant who was far more likely to be casually brutalized, since his servitude was of limited duration anyway. The slave owners would have been better off importing cheap, disposable labor, as was done during the Irish potato famine, the Great Wave and, now again, in the post-1965 immigration disaster. A slave owner had to buy or breed his slaves. In the latter case, he had to wait years to get any appreciable return on his investment. In either case, he had to feed them, clothe them, shelter them, train them, secure them, treat them, and then take care of them, after retirement or a disabling injury, for the duration. Today’s plutocrats are exponentially better off, with society paying for their cheap-labor imports.

    “Irrelevant. The fact remains Africans came to the United States against their free will.”

    So did millions of children and dependent spouses. Anyway, as I said before, they were already slaves; if they had not been sold to slavers, at the coast, they just would have been executed. In the words of Don McLean: “What we don’t sell, we shoot or give away….”

    “No, what is ludicrous is to deny the observable fact that immigrants helped to construct this country. Men like Andrew Carnegie, for example.”

    Here, again, is what you actually said, the previous time: “Remember, immigrants built our country, those who came here willingly and those who came here by force.” Damn white of them!

    “Corrected for accuracy—The accomplishments of human beings is on a spectrum due to a joint effort of genetics and environmental conditions. The achievements of our current society is due to past and present efforts by other civilizations.”

    The three other civilizations upon which American Civilization was built were the Classical Greeks, the Ancient Romans (both pagan and Christian), and the British, who founded the United States. All were White; all are now demonized as the epitome of genocidal evil, in contrast to their innocent victims of color.

    When America ceases to be a predominantly European nation– which, thankfully, should be after I am dead and buried at sea– it will cease to be America, just as my former hometown of L.A. has ceased to be American, and my subsequent hometown of New York City is well on its way to the same fate. When I was a boy in Gary, it was a mixed, blue-color industrial city; now it is a Black hole. When I was a boy in Gary, Chicago was a working-class and middle-class city full of ethnics from throughout Europe. Now, it is divided between White plutocrats, Brown peons, and Black ghetto-dwellers. The middle-class ethnics have been squeezed out of their own hometown. Fools like you, spouting social-justice jargon and slogans, think that you are doing the Lord’s work, so as to speak; instead, you are just useful idiots for White plutocrats.

    “Europeans were invariably part of those ‘primitive societies’. Moreover, perhaps those ‘inferior’ groups of people would have preferred to been left alone rather than be raped and plundered by supposedly ‘superior’ groups of people. But, it’s in the DNA of Europeans to create and destroy.”

    My father’s namesake co-founded East Hampton, Long Island. The mestizos whom you love are the descendants of the Europeans that did most all of the raping and plundering, in the New World. If you have a problem with the destructive side of European DNA, feel free to take it up with them, when they are not too busy driving drunk or chopping off heads as part of an MS-13 initiation rite. (At least they do not gang rape innocent White co-eds on broken glass in fraternity torture chambers, like blue-eyed, blond WASPS do at their sick, supremacist initiation rites, eh?)

    By the way, when is your next “racial decision” scheduled to be made?

    Talk about strawmen. I am not a leftist, nor a liberal, nor do I hate your views as a white person. What I questioned is you boasting about the reported successes of your old flames as in to draw undue attention to yourself.

    “The phenomenon of “social-justice warriors” is not about holding “liberal” views about “racial integration and environmentalism;” it is about the behavior exhibited by latter-day Leftists against those who hold or express any politically incorrect opinions, or anyone who simply makes a joke that some young asshole like you finds “insensitive” or “problematic.”

    On the contrary, the phenomenon of SJW’s focus on PC is predicated upon diversity, inclusion, and climate change.

    “Yes, son, I deny your “fact,” because it is counterfactual. During the Reconstruction Era of 1865-1877, the former Confederate states were run largely by northern carpetbaggers– along with hundreds of freed slaves! The Confederate rebels had lost the franchise.”

    Initially, those in positions of power in the Confederacy had lost the franchise, but in 1872, through an act of Congress (Amnesty Act), the voting restrictions and office-holding disqualifications were removed, enabling thousands of southern Democrats to eventually defeat Republican candidates in local and state elections. In the 1870’s, through an effort referred to as “redemption”, the White League and the Red Shirts undermined Reconstruction efforts. By 1876, only three southern states had yet to be taken over by white Democrats. Furthermore, 30 states by 1900 had compulsory education laws, with only four southern states obliging. While in those southern states that lacked mandatory schooling and offered blacks and whites an education, clearly the resources were other than equal for blacks, a clear violation of Plessy.

    “Funny, but Ms. Mercer’s and Dr. Katz’ people did not seem to have any great trouble overcoming thousands of years of sometimes-violent anti-Semitism and getting up to speed, once they hit the Lower East Side’s public schools, during the Great Wave of Mass Immigration!?!”

    Jews were considered white and had a stable financial situation, compared to the newly emancipated black who, after Reconstruction, were designated as second class citizens by the general southern (and northern) white population.

    “You said nothing, at that time, about “not all white people in the neighborhood had signed that restrictive covenant. They had refused to enter that agreement. Thus, they were not bound to it.”

    I offered clarification. Neglecting to state another relevant fact at the time does not negate its importance. It is accurate that white people chose not to sign the compact while still remaining in the neighborhood. Thus they were not bound to its terms. The compact was a violation of the individual white family’s right to free association.

    “[S]elf-esteem” is the Holy Grail of the Cult of Psychotherapy. If I were looking to raise my self-esteem by bragging on-line, I would need to do so using my full name, rather than just my given initials.”

    By continuing to insist you are better-educated than myself, that I am a “emasculated and deracinated specimen”, and declaring you have no confirmation biases and projections--especially since a wealth of evidence exists that shows people are indeed prone to be biased toward their existing beliefs--these are characteristics of an individual desperately trying to raise their standing in the eyes of the larger group.

    “No, those are not the facts. Slaves were generally treated well, because they represented long-term economic investments.”

    Since Africans were brought over to America by force and experienced wretched conditions on their journey, that alone obliterates your notion of “generally treated well”. Furthermore, while there were slave masters who offered more than the basic necessities and “spared the whip” for their property, the natural order of the day called for brutal and degrading treatment. It was common practice for slave owners to maintain "unconditional submission", create a sense of personal inferiority, so slaves "knew their place", and guarantee that the slave was dependent by depriving them access to education and recreation. While indentured servants also underwent harsh discipline, they were protected under English common law and eventually set free after completing the terms of their contract.

    “Anyway, as I said before, they were already slaves; if they had not been sold to slavers, at the coast, they just would have been executed.”

    There was a marked difference between African slavery and American slavery. Africans usually enslaved ‘other’ people, not their own particular ethnic, or cultural, group. Slaves were taken as prisoners of war, or enslaved in payment for debt or as punishment for crime. Enslavement was on a small scale for labor purposes. Tribal groups here did not simply execute their slaves, they made them work. Regardless of their condition, Africans who found their way to America had been coerced against their will.

    “Damn white of them!

    Exactly, immigrants built this country. Whites like Carnegie, the Chinese who worked on the transcontinental railroad, and forced migrants like blacks who made their white planters rich.

    “The three other civilizations upon which American Civilization was built were the Classical Greeks, the Ancient Romans (both pagan and Christian), and the British, who founded the United States. All were White; all are now demonized as the epitome of genocidal evil, in contrast to their innocent victims of color.”

    American civilization was also built by removing tribal groups from their land and by importing African slaves.

    “When America ceases to be a predominantly European nation– which, thankfully, should be after I am dead and buried at sea– it will cease to be America, just as my former hometown of L.A. has ceased to be American...”

    The same sentiments were shared by nativists in the 1850’s when the Irish and Germans arrived, in the 1890’s when the Italians and Slavs arrived, and in the 1960’s when the Africans and Asians arrived. Despite the changes in demographics, America will continue to remain America despite your protestations.

    “My father’s namesake co-founded East Hampton, Long Island.”

    Again, another instance of bringing undue attention to yourself. You may or may not be telling the truth. On the other hand, what is not being told is how it was founded.

    In 1959 Cuban life expectancy was 58. It is now 78 plus and higher for women. In 1959 the Cuban literacy rate was 26 percent. It is now 99.8 percent.

    ” In 1959 the Cuban literacy rate was 26 percent. It is now 99.8 percent”.

    Yeah sure simply because their own propaganda agencies make such rediculous claims they are then automatically true.

    And of course communists such as yourself would not dare to question these preposterous assertions.

    I seriously doubt that even you yourself would choose to be treated by a supposedly highly-trained Cuban doctor at one of their “first-class” medical facilities, which are lacking of adequate medical technology due to the cruel refusal of the ” class-enemy” ( USA), implemented through the embargo, to provide them with modern medical equipment.

    "You could have avoided your shenanigans from the jump by simply stating 'Yes, I believe women ought to have careers and be independent while being a wife and mother' or 'No, I believe women should assume the tradition role of being a stay at home mom and let the man be the breadwinner'."

    I have not played Shenanigans since the days of Stubby Kaye:

    http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/3713/shenanigans-game

    Regardless, why would I humor you by addressing your strawman argument that has nothing to do with anything that Ms. Mercer, 'Diversity Heretic' (to whom you originally replied) or I (in reply to your initial reply) had written? What woman cares what I think about what she should do or not do, once she is married-with-children? Why in the world do you care what I think about what women should or should not do, once they are married-with-children?

    "Boasting about your past lovers to strangers is unbecoming. Regardless, your support for women to exercise their liberty to have a career runs counter to a number of white people who believe the white race will only survive if more white women get married and have children at the expense of college and employment. Looks like you have some explaining to do with your posse."

    If I wanted to boast to some pseudonymous asshole on-line about my old girlfriends, it would not be about how rich any of them got, after parting ways with me. (I assume that you do not have any old girlfriends....) Why are Whites who have views that I do not happen to share, and that you, as a mindless Leftist, are required to hate, "[my] posse," rather than yours? You claim to be a White man, too, do you not?!?

    "The origins of SJW come directly from the Beatniks of the 1950’s and the Hippies of the 1960’s. Those who supported racial integration and environmentalism in those decades would be labeled in that fashion today."

    Find me an actual citation of the actual use of the actual phrase "social-justice warrior" (or use of the acronym "SJW" to connote that phrase, rather than "single Jewish woman") from the 1950s, or even the 1960s. The phenomenon of "social-justice warriors" is not about holding "liberal" views about "racial integration and environmentalism;" it is about the behavior exhibited by latter-day Leftists against those who hold or express any politically incorrect opinions, or anyone who simply makes a joke that some young asshole like you finds "insensitive" or "problematic."

    "No, it shows exactly the devastation that Jim Crow laws had on white-black achievement gaps in education and its resonating impact. Southern states made other than an honest effort during Reconstruction to ensure a quality education for newly freed slaves. Rather, blacks endured decades of neglect when it came to funding, quality of instruction, and infrastructure. Do you deny this fact?

    "A 14-year program would certainly not adequately address the deep-rooted problems that had been baked into the cake since Reconstruction. Moreover, the point of the author was making that it takes more than money to break the cycle of poverty. Next time, refer to the source’s conclusion for a more thoroughly understanding of the issue."

    Yes, son, I deny your "fact," because it is counterfactual. During the Reconstruction Era of 1865-1877, the former Confederate states were run largely by northern carpetbaggers-- along with hundreds of freed slaves! The Confederate rebels had lost the franchise. Regardless, the first state to have compulsory education was Massachusetts, in 1852. By 1870, only Vermont and the District of Columbia had joined it. As for the South, Tennessee went first-- in 1905! Mississippi drew up the rear, in 1918. In other words, you do not know what the hell you are talking about, youngster! Try this:

    Funny, but Ms. Mercer's and Dr. Katz' people did not seem to have any great trouble overcoming thousands of years of sometimes-violent anti-Semitism and getting up to speed, once they hit the Lower East Side's public schools, during the Great Wave of Mass Immigration!?! Perhaps that has something to do with the relative IQ distributions of Black Americans and Jewish Americans, rather than with "deep-rooted problems that had been baked into the cake," eh? Or, do you have a more Occamite explanation for why Black SAT test-takers from the wealthiest Black families beat White SAT test-takers from the poorest White families by only three points, on average, on the older, two-part SAT?!?

    "No, as I correctly stated earlier, not all white people in the neighborhood had signed that restrictive covenant. They had refused to enter that agreement. Thus, they were not bound to it. Moreover, in this particular case, freedom of association means that an individual is able to decide whether or not that contract serves their best interest from a home owner’s perspective. Clearly, had this white family personally desired to sell the home to any family of their own choosing, including a black family, they are not obligated to carry out its intentions."

    No, as you stated earlier [supra]: "Had the South honored the Justices ruling in the Plessy case regarding 'separate but equal', perhaps federal intervention to ensure the liberties of all citizens would have been averted. Clearly, blacks during the Jim Crow era were treated other than political equals. The right of whites to openly and freely associate with blacks in the South was assaulted through legal and social sanction. If a white family sought to sell a house to a black family in an exclusively white neighborhood, their personal freedom to engage in such conduct was deemed illegal and immoral. Thus the CRA ensured that state sponsored action of abridging federal citizenship in such vile undertakings would be obliterated."

    That was your complete response to the line of mine that you had quoted: "“The Act clearly abridges Americans’ right to free association in employment and housing, inter alia.” You said nothing, at that time, about "not all white people in the neighborhood had signed that restrictive covenant. They had refused to enter that agreement. Thus, they were not bound to it." Stop lying, when what you wrote previously is still sitting there in cyberspace, just a click of a mouse or a flick of a finger away from your newest lie, for everyone here to see! On top of it, you evince not the slightest grasp of the actual principles of Contract Law.

    "You called Gould 'moronic' and 'malignant' and a 'scientific charlatan'. You are certainly entitled to your opinion when labeling his positions. But declaring this characterization as absolute fact is essentially a Fake News Story."

    More lies! I called the concept of "disparate impact," as applied by the courts in discrimination cases, "moronic and malignant." I then called the "belief in human equality as 'a contingent fact of history'" the same. I did not say that Professor Gould himself, as a person, was "moronic and malignant." As for my calling him a "scientific charlatan":

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/14/science/14skull.html

    You progbots are mouthing the "Fake News Story" meme as if you were programmed by the same person as Marco Rubio, last winter!?! At a minimum, a "Fake News Story" would have to purport to be a REAL NEWS STORY-- you know, "Who, What, Where, When, Why and How," along with a byline, a dateline, and the additional imprimaturs of a REAL NEWS STORY?!? Opinion columns are not "Fake News." Blog posts are not "Fake News." Comments in response to either are not "Fake News." "Dewey Defeats Truman" was "Fake News."

    "No, you were needlessly touting your achievements to raise your level of self-esteem. As I correctly stated earlier, it’s unbecoming."

    "[S]elf-esteem" is the Holy Grail of the Cult of Psychotherapy. If I were looking to raise my self-esteem by bragging on-line, I would need to do so using my full name, rather than just my given initials. Believe me, I do not consider my being smarter and better-educated than you anything to write home about, if my mother were still alive to read my letters home. When I want advice on becoming becoming, I will not be asking an emasculated and deracinated specimen like you.

    "It is abundantly clear you were virtue signaling—you were expressing viewpoints that are especially valued within a social group while enhancing your social standing through your alleged accomplishments."

    I repeat: “Merely demonstrating that you have no understanding of the term’s proper meaning and usage.”

    "Have Elite Whites made those exact sentiments you attribute known to the white masses, or are you assuming that they feel this way given your own confirmation biases and projections?

    "Now, by your own metric, you fall into that category as an Elite White, one who touts their own superior whiteness over whites such as myself who dares to criticize your racial policies. Would it not appear that those whites who adhere to your ideology are also 'your own kind' and those whites who oppose your beliefs are on the 'outside looking in'?"

    I am not assuming anything; I am observing, as I have been doing since the first Kennedy-Nixon debate. I have no confirmation biases and projections. I am not a Freudian cultist. As Richard Starkey, qua 'Ringo Starr', said to Leo McKern, qua 'Clang', in "HELP!" (1965): "GET SACRIFICED! I DON'T SUBSCRIBE TO YOUR RELIGION!"

    For the record, I do not believe that my "whiteness" is superior to yours; I merely know that my mind is superior to yours-- as are my knowledge base and my grasp of reality. What are our respective racial policies, by the way? You keep alluding to them, but never delineating them. In the words of Sir Paul McCartney: "Very strange!" As for theology, so for ideology: I have none, because I need none. What is it that you feel that you are on the outside looking in at, as a result of my not sharing your delusional left-wing beliefs?

    "Yes, I am familiar with the fact that blacks enslaved blacks and sold them. Regardless of how they gained that status, they were held against their will. They did not willingly choose to become slaves. Africans were forced to be transported to an unfamiliar place, forced to work for no wages in brutal conditions. Those are facts."

    No, those are not the facts. Slaves were generally treated well, because they represented long-term economic investments. It was the indentured servant who was far more likely to be casually brutalized, since his servitude was of limited duration anyway. The slave owners would have been better off importing cheap, disposable labor, as was done during the Irish potato famine, the Great Wave and, now again, in the post-1965 immigration disaster. A slave owner had to buy or breed his slaves. In the latter case, he had to wait years to get any appreciable return on his investment. In either case, he had to feed them, clothe them, shelter them, train them, secure them, treat them, and then take care of them, after retirement or a disabling injury, for the duration. Today's plutocrats are exponentially better off, with society paying for their cheap-labor imports.

    "Irrelevant. The fact remains Africans came to the United States against their free will."

    So did millions of children and dependent spouses. Anyway, as I said before, they were already slaves; if they had not been sold to slavers, at the coast, they just would have been executed. In the words of Don McLean: "What we don't sell, we shoot or give away...."

    "No, what is ludicrous is to deny the observable fact that immigrants helped to construct this country. Men like Andrew Carnegie, for example."

    Here, again, is what you actually said, the previous time: "Remember, immigrants built our country, those who came here willingly and those who came here by force." Damn white of them!

    "Corrected for accuracy—The accomplishments of human beings is on a spectrum due to a joint effort of genetics and environmental conditions. The achievements of our current society is due to past and present efforts by other civilizations."

    The three other civilizations upon which American Civilization was built were the Classical Greeks, the Ancient Romans (both pagan and Christian), and the British, who founded the United States. All were White; all are now demonized as the epitome of genocidal evil, in contrast to their innocent victims of color.

    When America ceases to be a predominantly European nation-- which, thankfully, should be after I am dead and buried at sea-- it will cease to be America, just as my former hometown of L.A. has ceased to be American, and my subsequent hometown of New York City is well on its way to the same fate. When I was a boy in Gary, it was a mixed, blue-color industrial city; now it is a Black hole. When I was a boy in Gary, Chicago was a working-class and middle-class city full of ethnics from throughout Europe. Now, it is divided between White plutocrats, Brown peons, and Black ghetto-dwellers. The middle-class ethnics have been squeezed out of their own hometown. Fools like you, spouting social-justice jargon and slogans, think that you are doing the Lord's work, so as to speak; instead, you are just useful idiots for White plutocrats.

    "Europeans were invariably part of those 'primitive societies'. Moreover, perhaps those 'inferior' groups of people would have preferred to been left alone rather than be raped and plundered by supposedly 'superior' groups of people. But, it’s in the DNA of Europeans to create and destroy."

    My father's namesake co-founded East Hampton, Long Island. The mestizos whom you love are the descendants of the Europeans that did most all of the raping and plundering, in the New World. If you have a problem with the destructive side of European DNA, feel free to take it up with them, when they are not too busy driving drunk or chopping off heads as part of an MS-13 initiation rite. (At least they do not gang rape innocent White co-eds on broken glass in fraternity torture chambers, like blue-eyed, blond WASPS do at their sick, supremacist initiation rites, eh?)

    By the way, when is your next "racial decision" scheduled to be made?

    ”What woman cares what I think about what she should do or not do, once she is married-with-children? Why in the world do you care what I think about what women should or should not do, once they are married-with-children?”

    Talk about strawmen. I am not a leftist, nor a liberal, nor do I hate your views as a white person. What I questioned is you boasting about the reported successes of your old flames as in to draw undue attention to yourself.

    Initially, those in positions of power in the Confederacy had lost the franchise, but in 1872, through an act of Congress (Amnesty Act), the voting restrictions and office-holding disqualifications were removed, enabling thousands of southern Democrats to eventually defeat Republican candidates in local and state elections. In the 1870’s, through an effort referred to as “redemption”, the White League and the Red Shirts undermined Reconstruction efforts. By 1876, only three southern states had yet to be taken over by white Democrats. Furthermore, 30 states by 1900 had compulsory education laws, with only four southern states obliging. While in those southern states that lacked mandatory schooling and offered blacks and whites an education, clearly the resources were other than equal for blacks, a clear violation of Plessy.

    “Funny, but Ms. Mercer’s and Dr. Katz’ people did not seem to have any great trouble overcoming thousands of years of sometimes-violent anti-Semitism and getting up to speed, once they hit the Lower East Side’s public schools, during the Great Wave of Mass Immigration!?!”

    “You said nothing, at that time, about “not all white people in the neighborhood had signed that restrictive covenant. They had refused to enter that agreement. Thus, they were not bound to it.”

    I offered clarification. Neglecting to state another relevant fact at the time does not negate its importance. It is accurate that white people chose not to sign the compact while still remaining in the neighborhood. Thus they were not bound to its terms. The compact was a violation of the individual white family’s right to free association.

    “[S]elf-esteem” is the Holy Grail of the Cult of Psychotherapy. If I were looking to raise my self-esteem by bragging on-line, I would need to do so using my full name, rather than just my given initials.”

    By continuing to insist you are better-educated than myself, that I am a “emasculated and deracinated specimen”, and declaring you have no confirmation biases and projections–especially since a wealth of evidence exists that shows people are indeed prone to be biased toward their existing beliefs–these are characteristics of an individual desperately trying to raise their standing in the eyes of the larger group.

    “No, those are not the facts. Slaves were generally treated well, because they represented long-term economic investments.”

    Since Africans were brought over to America by force and experienced wretched conditions on their journey, that alone obliterates your notion of “generally treated well”. Furthermore, while there were slave masters who offered more than the basic necessities and “spared the whip” for their property, the natural order of the day called for brutal and degrading treatment. It was common practice for slave owners to maintain “unconditional submission”, create a sense of personal inferiority, so slaves “knew their place”, and guarantee that the slave was dependent by depriving them access to education and recreation. While indentured servants also underwent harsh discipline, they were protected under English common law and eventually set free after completing the terms of their contract.

    “Anyway, as I said before, they were already slaves; if they had not been sold to slavers, at the coast, they just would have been executed.”

    There was a marked difference between African slavery and American slavery. Africans usually enslaved ‘other’ people, not their own particular ethnic, or cultural, group. Slaves were taken as prisoners of war, or enslaved in payment for debt or as punishment for crime. Enslavement was on a small scale for labor purposes. Tribal groups here did not simply execute their slaves, they made them work. Regardless of their condition, Africans who found their way to America had been coerced against their will.

    “Damn white of them!

    Exactly, immigrants built this country. Whites like Carnegie, the Chinese who worked on the transcontinental railroad, and forced migrants like blacks who made their white planters rich.

    The same sentiments were shared by nativists in the 1850’s when the Irish and Germans arrived, in the 1890’s when the Italians and Slavs arrived, and in the 1960’s when the Africans and Asians arrived. Despite the changes in demographics, America will continue to remain America despite your protestations.

    “My father’s namesake co-founded East Hampton, Long Island.”

    Again, another instance of bringing undue attention to yourself. You may or may not be telling the truth. On the other hand, what is not being told is how it was founded.

    "No, that was the Spanish conquistadors, who were generally not inhibited by moral or social restraints."

    The mestizos of present-day Latin America are descendants of the Spanish conquistadors. Spain is a country located in Europe; therefore, those conquistadors were Europeans. Most white citizens of the United States or Canada have little or no ancestry from those Spanish conquistadors. Ergo, D.K.'s comment is both correct and also relevant, and you are a blathering imbecile and unsubtle propagandist.

    Jews were considered white and had a stable financial situation, compared to the newly emancipated black who, after Reconstruction, were designated as second class citizens by the general southern (and northern) white population.

    “You said nothing, at that time, about “not all white people in the neighborhood had signed that restrictive covenant. They had refused to enter that agreement. Thus, they were not bound to it.”

    I offered clarification. Neglecting to state another relevant fact at the time does not negate its importance. It is accurate that white people chose not to sign the compact while still remaining in the neighborhood. Thus they were not bound to its terms. The compact was a violation of the individual white family’s right to free association.

    “[S]elf-esteem” is the Holy Grail of the Cult of Psychotherapy. If I were looking to raise my self-esteem by bragging on-line, I would need to do so using my full name, rather than just my given initials.”

    By continuing to insist you are better-educated than myself, that I am a “emasculated and deracinated specimen”, and declaring you have no confirmation biases and projections--especially since a wealth of evidence exists that shows people are indeed prone to be biased toward their existing beliefs--these are characteristics of an individual desperately trying to raise their standing in the eyes of the larger group.

    “No, those are not the facts. Slaves were generally treated well, because they represented long-term economic investments.”

    Since Africans were brought over to America by force and experienced wretched conditions on their journey, that alone obliterates your notion of “generally treated well”. Furthermore, while there were slave masters who offered more than the basic necessities and “spared the whip” for their property, the natural order of the day called for brutal and degrading treatment. It was common practice for slave owners to maintain "unconditional submission", create a sense of personal inferiority, so slaves "knew their place", and guarantee that the slave was dependent by depriving them access to education and recreation. While indentured servants also underwent harsh discipline, they were protected under English common law and eventually set free after completing the terms of their contract.

    “Anyway, as I said before, they were already slaves; if they had not been sold to slavers, at the coast, they just would have been executed.”

    There was a marked difference between African slavery and American slavery. Africans usually enslaved ‘other’ people, not their own particular ethnic, or cultural, group. Slaves were taken as prisoners of war, or enslaved in payment for debt or as punishment for crime. Enslavement was on a small scale for labor purposes. Tribal groups here did not simply execute their slaves, they made them work. Regardless of their condition, Africans who found their way to America had been coerced against their will.

    “Damn white of them!

    Exactly, immigrants built this country. Whites like Carnegie, the Chinese who worked on the transcontinental railroad, and forced migrants like blacks who made their white planters rich.

    “The three other civilizations upon which American Civilization was built were the Classical Greeks, the Ancient Romans (both pagan and Christian), and the British, who founded the United States. All were White; all are now demonized as the epitome of genocidal evil, in contrast to their innocent victims of color.”

    American civilization was also built by removing tribal groups from their land and by importing African slaves.

    “When America ceases to be a predominantly European nation– which, thankfully, should be after I am dead and buried at sea– it will cease to be America, just as my former hometown of L.A. has ceased to be American...”

    The same sentiments were shared by nativists in the 1850’s when the Irish and Germans arrived, in the 1890’s when the Italians and Slavs arrived, and in the 1960’s when the Africans and Asians arrived. Despite the changes in demographics, America will continue to remain America despite your protestations.

    “My father’s namesake co-founded East Hampton, Long Island.”

    Again, another instance of bringing undue attention to yourself. You may or may not be telling the truth. On the other hand, what is not being told is how it was founded.

    ”The mestizos whom you love are the descendants of the Europeans that did most all of the raping and plundering, in the New World.”

    No, that was the Spanish conquistadors, who were generally not inhibited by moral or social restraints.

    “No, that was the Spanish conquistadors, who were generally not inhibited by moral or social restraints.”

    The mestizos of present-day Latin America are descendants of the Spanish conquistadors. Spain is a country located in Europe; therefore, those conquistadors were Europeans. Most white citizens of the United States or Canada have little or no ancestry from those Spanish conquistadors. Ergo, D.K.’s comment is both correct and also relevant, and you are a blathering imbecile and unsubtle propagandist.

    The raping and plundering in the New World was compliments of the conquistadors. In the Spanish system of racial hierarchy, the mestizos, who formed the majority, had fewer rights than the minority elite European-born persons called peninsulares, and the minority white colonial-born whites criollo.

So, I will summarize the situation, and leave the patiently restrained Ms. Mercer, and our overly indulgent host, Mr. Unz, to deal with you and your ilk: You are one of those half-witted ideologues who imagines himself, instead, an ingenious intellectual, and an ignoramus who thinks himself a savant.

    Corvinus,

    Basically, your argument amounts to the following:

    1. The conquistadors who invaded and conquered Latin America were Europeans.
    2. The colonists who founded the USA and Canada were also Europeans.
    3. The mestizos who currently are infiltrating the USA are only half-Europeans.
    4. Therefore, I demand that everyone overlook those mestizos' illegal infiltration and even give them preferential treatment.

    You are ignoring the fact that it is those mestizos (as well as any Latin Americans who happen to be of pure Spanish conquistador lineage rather than subsequent Spanish and other European immigrants, which surely must be near nil) who are the actual descendants of the conquistadors who did "the raping and plundering in the New World."

    Now, who do you think is the one whose reasoning (if it may be called that) is really racist?

    Yes, yes--under Batista Cuba was surely the very tallest of the Empire's Lillaputians, jeje.

    And that only for the top ten percent at best.

    Even some gusanos admit the notable success of the literacy program in Castro's Cuba, and then (in one's experience) explain it as inherent in the Cuban culture. Which even may be true to an extent but for the partisans of Batista and the later gusanos it never included the campesinos working for a few cents a day for the US imperialists, did it?

    Nothing notable about it: you’ll notice most of Latin America has had similar trend over the past 50 years. Cuba was a solidly middle class country before Castro, even NYT’s Herbert Matthews (largely responsible for revolution’s success) said this. Castro and his compadres were overwhelmingly from decent backgrounds, not starving peasants.

    Smug Binyamin,
    This some vile dreck you've spilt. Best you do your homework before venting your anti-white, anti-American animus. Your paranoia & insecurity are too obvious.

    White population is ageing, a demonstrable fact for whatever reason, be it sociological, psychological or for the simple reason that some time ago Western women decided to have less babies-that’s their choice.
     
    Uh. "less babies" would be due to feminism, the ascent of hypergamy and the cultural war on traditional values.

    It is therefore no coincidence that most genuine believers in free market capitalism are relaxed about immigration and we are not just taking about Wall Street bankers. Overwhelmingly immigrant labour is productive and the economy benefits.
     
    The biggest proponent of immigration are not believers in free market capitalism. They are either anti-white ethnic agitators, or greedy SOBs who wish to flood the labor market, drive down wages and hike up their profits.

    If anything, under Trump more H-1B Indian visas will be issued. You haven’t done your research have you?
     
    Not bloody likely. Did you listen to any of Trump's campaign speeches on immigration? He specifically mentioned the current abuse of H-1Bs, and pledged to put citizens interests (& wages first).

    Ah, another colorist.

    Merely by the way, Cuba is now essentially even with the United in life expectancy. A massive gain for Cuba since the pre-Revolution days, and with the deck stacked against them by the embargo, and a dismal failure for the United States.

    “…and with the deck stacked against them by the embargo…”

    Actually, the so called ‘embargo’ was a calculated gift to allow Cuba and the Cuban people to become strong on their own. I think we can all agree that the success they’ve had would be diminished greatly were they to not have beaten back the challenges they faced without Satan’s help. There’s not a Cuban you can find that wishes that the embargo had not been put in place.

    Another trashy third rate article by wannabe white supremacist Ilana Mercer. America imports nearly a million non white immigrants and that includes you, Ilana! Mercer has no understanding of the mechanics of free market. White population is ageing, a demonstrable fact for whatever reason, be it sociological, psychological or for the simple reason that some time ago Western women decided to have less babies-that's their choice. You still have to run an economy and market forces demands steady replacement of the workforce. It is therefore no coincidence that most genuine believers in free market capitalism are relaxed about immigration and we are not just taking about Wall Street bankers. Overwhelmingly immigrant labour is productive and the economy benefits. Without this constant replacement of an ageing population the economy would head towards not merely recession but permanent stagnation. Moreover, Mercer is too thick to see the irony - a liberal immigration policy allowed a swarthy alien like her to emigrate to North America and acquire Canadian citizenship.

    It is a monstrous lie to say that immigrants are brought into the country to beef up the welfare state. Poor whites are the biggest beneficiaries of welfare and no one should begrudge them that because their communities have been devastated over the decades not because of immigration but due to the march of globalization. American factories closed in their thousands due to much cheaper, readily available, and equally skilled Chinese workforce.

    Another lie perpetuated by Alt Right morons- whites are discriminated by top university. Wrong! Top American Universities are the best in the world. That means they recruit the best based on ability alone. If they were recruiting second rate candidates as a result of some twisted ideology as Mercer alleges then it would be impossible for them to achieve top world ranking year after year.

    65,000 H-1B Indian Visa recipients? We all know about Trump's attributes except one. Believe it or not, Trump is a Indophile. He has more business interests in India that any other country on earth. If anything, under Trump more H-1B Indian visas will be issued. You haven't done your research have you?

    Mr. Unz, may I call you Ron? Please sack the obnoxious Ilana Mercer. I understand your desire to have a token woman on board. Surely there is no shortage of intelligent women who can write, who do not suffer from self hatred and who are willing to come on board and join your endeavor.

    Where have you been since 1968? Universities use affirmative action admissions like every employer. A nephew was turned down by Stanford despite very high SATs and straight As at a prestige private high school.

    I told his parents to insist that he check black instead. But being honest Whites he checked White.
    So he worked construction for a year, re applied as a black who “struggled” with the horrors of being one of the few blacks at a Loyola high school and viola!!!! not only was he accepted but got a full scholarship including vouchers for those overpriced text books.

    You have no idea what you are writing about. Affirmative action is the major criteria in college admissions and hiring and promotions. What are you, a Rip Van Winkle who went into a coma in 1960? Do you think Eisenhower is President and Kennedy will take office next month?

    America doesn’t need more people; it needs to allow its own people to recover.
     
    America needs to reduce its third world population and increase the white founding stock. This is easily achievable by providing preferences in education and jobs coupled with financial incentives for working and middle class whites to have 3-4 children. This means blacks and other non-whites get the leftovers. Non-white immigrants should also be barred from receiving any public aid such as welfare, food stamps and medicaid.

    Whites should not feel guilty about furthering their own group interests as Negro, Latino, Jew and Muslim lobby for special rights and privileges for their respective groups often at the expense of whites. A healthy race would have put an end to this state of affairs long ago, but that's another matter. And this is our nation since it was founded and built by white Europeans and since we constituted a super majority of 90% until the early 1970's. It was never intended to be a giant safe space for Mestizos and other third world peoples fleeing the dysfunction of their own societies.

    A government can only effectively serve one race of people, not multiple racial groups. But this will involve dislodging Jews from positions of power and influence throughout the establishment (for starters, George Soros should be arrested and executed). For if a campaign to revive the white founding stock ever begins in earnest it is they who will throw their considerable political weight behind efforts to maintain the status quo of white demographic displacement, dispossession and death.

    With 100 million non-whites on American soil we are arguably past the point of no return, so a racial partition of this nation is the best option to include one giant ethnostate or several medium sized ethnostates for whites.

    Don’t forget the sons and grandchildren and all the Soros relatives and associates

  • The correct number of immigrants is zero.
    I think most readers here understand the 1965 immigration law was designed to displace whites.

    Many reasons make immigration obsolete.
    For just one, see Brenda Walker’s articles in VDARE dot com about automation replacing humans on the job.
    This time, the technology is not an job-creator. It is a human-displacer.
