If African-Americans didn’t get out and vote for Hillary Clinton, they would be dissing him and his legacy. So warned President Barack Obama, in a speech at the Black Caucus Foundation in Washington DC, on September 17.

The woman whose election promises portend a war on whites, Walmart and the wealthy has nothing to fear. Obama’s political cant notwithstanding, there isn’t much of a chance blacks will side overwhelmingly with Hillary’s rival.

Like never before, the 2016 election has been characterized by “a muscular mobilization of a race-based community, coercive control of territory and appeals by powerful charismatic leaders.”

What do I mean by “coercive control of territory”? Consider what would transpire if Donald Trump were to campaign “big-league” in Birmingham (Alabama), Charlotte (North Carolina), or South Los Angeles. Riots would erupt. (Incidentally, the thing where private property is invaded and looted is not called a protest.)

As sure as night follows day, the American democracy is destined to resemble that of South Africa, where a ruling majority party is permanently entrenched, and where voting is characterized by what has become Barack Obama’s signature tactic, a “muscular mobilization of the race-based community.”

The last, twice-repeated reference is out of “Into The Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons For America From Post-Apartheid South-Africa.” In 2011, the book used the tragic example of post-apartheid South Africa to forewarn Americans of the effects of a shift in their country’s founding political dispensation, a shift being achieved stateside through immigration central-planning.

America’s political class has been tinkering with the country’s historical demographic composition for decades. The consequence of the mass importation of poor, Third World immigrants is that America, like South Africa, is headed to dominant-party status, in which a permanent majority intractably hostile to the minority consolidates power, and in which voting along racial lines is the rule.

It used to be that the Democratic Party was this nascent majority’s political organ, offering a platform of preferential policies for a voting bloc whose “interests are viewed through the prism of racial affiliations.” Obama’s Dreams from America are for a country in which the historic majority is destined to become a marginalized minority, consigned to the status of spectator in the political bleachers. Ditto Clinton’s dreams. But, as election year 2016 has shown, the Republican Party is vying for a similar mantle.

That South Africa is riven by race is indisputable. Each election is “a racial census as far as whites and blacks are concerned.” In the much-ballyhooed, historic election of 1994, “only two to three percent of whites voted for historically black parties and perhaps five percent of blacks voted for historically white parties. The ANC relied for ninety-four percent of its vote on black support. The historically white parties had been barred from campaigning in the black townships.” Yet elections since 1994 have had the blessing of every liberal alive, and that includes many of the world’s self-styled conservatives.

“The rule of the people, demos, and the people’s ethnicity, ethnos” invariably clash, argued Michael Mann, “one of the leading historical sociologists of our time.” In “The Dark Side of Democracy: Explaining Ethnic Cleansing” (2004), Mann contends that in the earlier, more formative stages of their development, democracies are prone to carrying out murderous ethnic cleansing, which in extreme forms can become genocidal.

“The growth of popular sovereignty, the institutionalization of universal citizenship, [and] the creation of mass society” have often seen “ethnic groups laying claim to the same territory resort to the use of force, and, when frustrated, to murderous ethnic cleansing and even genocide.” Examples of this phenomenon in modernity: the ethnic expulsions and massacres in the democratized former Yugoslavia and Rwanda during the 1990s, the genocide of the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire under the Young Turks (particularly in 1915-1916), and the mechanized mass murder of the Jews in Nazi Germany. While the infant South-African democracy fits snugly within his thesis, democracy devotees [the writer is not one] have accused Mann of twisting like a Cirque du Soleil contortionist to stretch the definition of democracy in making his case.

Where Mann is at pains to prove the murderous nature of young democracies, the arguments against democracy for South Africa, which have been propounded by Duke University scholar Donald L. Horowitz, have considerable force. Finely attuned to “important currents in South African thought,” Horowitz offered up an excruciatingly detailed analysis of South Africa’s constitutional options.

In “A Democratic South Africa?: Constitutional Engineering in a Divided Society” (1991), Horowitz concluded that democracy is, in general, unusual in Africa, and, in particular, rare in ethnically and racially divided societies, where majorities and minorities are rigidly predetermined.

Prone to seeing faces in the clouds, the new South Africa’s Anglo-American cheerleaders were impervious to such sobering pronouncements. It remained for students of democracy such as Horowitz to hope only that “the probability will … recede that one person, one vote, one value, and one state will degenerate into only one legal party and one last election.”

“Elections to be meaningful presuppose a certain level of political organization. … The primary problem is … the creation of a legitimate public order. Authority has to exist before it can be limited, and it is authority that is in scarce supply in the modernizing countries,” warned Samuel Huntington in “Political Order In Changing Societies.” Little did Huntington consider that, with enough tinkering by its ruling elites; a modern and mighty country like the U.S. could devolve into an atavistic and dangerous place.

Not nearly as hopeful as Horowitz was that “noted student of nationalism” Elie Kedourie. “If majority and minority are perpetual, then government ceases to have a mediatory or remedial function, and becomes an instrument of perpetual oppression of the minority by the majority,” concluded Kedourie. It was after a visit to South Africa that he wrote the following, in the November 1987 issue of the South Africa International:

The worst effects of the tyranny of the majority are seen when parliamentary government on the unalloyed Westminster model is introduced into countries divided by religion or language or race. Such for example was the case of Iraq … where an extremely heterogeneous society came to be endowed with constitutions which made no provision for diversity, and where the result was tyranny of one groups over the other groups in the society.

A prerequisite for a classical liberal democracy is that majority and minority status be interchangeable and fluid in politics; that a ruling majority party be as likely to become a minority party as the obverse. By contrast, in South Africa, the majority and the minorities are politically permanent, not temporary.


America’s Founding Fathers had attempted to forestall raw democracy by devising a republic. Every democratic theorist worth his salt—Robert Dahl and Elaine Spitz come to mind—has urged that the raw, ripe rule of the mob and its dominant, anointed party be severely curtailed under certain circumstances fast approaching in the United States of America. These are “whenever people of different languages, races, religions, or national origins, with no firm habits of political co-operation and mutual trust, are to unite in a single polity.”

In other words, multicultural America.

    ‘Mass importation of poor third world immigrants’ -says Mercer, a poor third world immigrant herself. At least most third world immigrants to America become productive members of society whether working in Starbucks or in Microsoft or in Goldman Sacks or as an engineer in one of the countries’ myriads of defense and space related industries, just to give a few example. They are a better class of human being than a full time internet blogger whose contribution to society in terms of wealth creation is zero. The funny bit is, since emigrating to the West, Mercer has become something of a white’s rights advocate despite being as swarthy and foreign looking as Col Qaddafi. Being a serial immigrant, she has recently fantasized about emigrating to Hungary presumably because according to her estimate there are no blacks or Muslims in that country (by the way, I am not making this up).

    At least on this occasion Mercer the wannabe YouTube star has spared us her YouTube freak show. It was quite funny. I had always regarded the average full time Alt Right blogger as dirt poor and deservedly so since they do not generate any wealth. Even I did not know that Mercer, as shown in her ludicrous you tube rant, was living in a cupboard. No doubt behind the video camera lay stack load of unsold copies of her dreadful Donald Trump book.

    But seriously folks, yes identity politics is wrong if identity politics means voting according to to one’s ethnicity or background or religion. People should vote according to their conviction. But then what on earth is Donald Trump doing except espousing white identity politics?

    There will be no reversal of this because the politically correct indoctrinated majority do not want to recognize that this is a significant problem: Racial balkanization plus economic decline equals social instability. The libs will say that criticizing afro americans, and wanting to protect your own interest is racism, coupled with a secret desire for Black genocide. Thus these baseless accusations cause the debate to be silenced, especially for faint hearted Whites; and the problem just continues to fester, and grow worse over time. However there will come a time when the problems are so big that it will no longer be abled to be ignored. By then the damage will have already been done, with most of urban America looking like Detroit/Camden. Violence will be routine and scarcity will be the norm, and it will not be any better for Blacks, as anyone else, suffering what will become a long term crisis. It did not have to be this way, but this is what the leftist and radical afro americans wanted – – be careful what you wish for (while the rest of us suffer the consequences it). Those who cannot confront reality does not mean that reality will not eventually confront you (academic obfuscation will not save your life when its time for life and death struggle).

    The question is, will the fate of America’s historic majority go the direction of Russians in the Soviet Union, or whites in South Africa? The Communist elite eventually drew the Russian majority to its side as their right hand man and partner in crime, so to speak, as Geoffry Hoskins ably described in “Rulers and Victims: The Russians in the Soviet Union.” Those Russians who didn’t have the wrong bloodlines, who weren’t too attached to their Christian heritage, or any other ethical system for that matter, were allowed to live, so as to assist the regime in bullying the minorities, and eventually even got to inherit Russia back when the parasite finally moved on. Putin’s family is a symbol of that (Putin’s grandpa was a cook for Lenin and Stalin.)

    The whites in South Africa were never a majority, of course, but they made up a solid 25% I believe in the 1980s, when it looked like they would be secure forever. When the blacks took over in the 90s, about half the whites fled to other outposts of the West, leaving the remainder to be slowly exterminated.

    Like the Russian, we make up a majority (for now). On the other hand, we’ve only been here a few centuries, like the Afrikaans. It could go either way.

And “most third world immigrants” have NOT become productive, they have become welfare sponges and violent criminals. More than 21000 illegals have been convicted of murder in the last 15 years alone.

    I had the fortune of living most of my life in South Africa, up until about two years ago. Sorry to have to break it to you, but you can kiss the wildlife goodbye.

    Africa is awash in guns after decades of civil wars. Poaching is big business. The white rhino is already extinct.

    At the same time, Africa’s population is exploding, while food production declines. Africa survives only because of food handouts from Western countries. These handouts only aggravate the problem, as local farmers can’t compete with free food from the UN, so they don’t produce any crops.

    So what happens when the foreign aid dries up? All it would take would be a widespread crop failure, an economic collapse, or a hardening of attitudes in donor countries… I’m convinced it will happen, sooner or later. Then you will see a huge die-off in Africa, with deaths from starvation and competition for remaining resources in the hundreds of millions. But before it’s over, Africans will eat everything living on the continent – including, eventually, each other.

    Goodbye, wildlife.

    I see that as inevitable. There’s only one way to mitigate the disaster; that’s practicable, at least. But it won’t be done.

    Collect and preserve genetic material from as many specimens as possible with a view to repopulating Africa using zoo animals to breed new populations. Excluding, of course the putatively human specimens.

    You want to limit the death toll? Then, stop feeding them. Now.

    The ANC is basically a conservative black man’s party that favors the black majority. It’s just dressed up in the remnants of Apartheid leftist revolutionary language, like a lot of “socialist” parties are in third world countries. White South Africans make up the whiny liberal minorities over there.

    What’s more likely in America is a single party that milks racial strife and anti-white resentment for as long as possible, presumably until some non-whites become so assimilated that they stop caring about race hysteria.

    We’re entering the advanced, highly visible stage of forced mass immigration and “civil rights” insanity. And the coming economic dislocations will be huge with attendant much diminished white patience for calls to “share” or for leftist traitors. “Negro fatigue” will take its place in DSM-VI.

    White S. Africa and Rhodesia had to bend because of powerful US and European pressure. There won’t be such powerful nations pushing suicide and insanity on us as we did on them.

    Could well be, almost a million have fled the country. The remaining South Africans are still murdered at 33/100 000 which is 5 times the world average. The white farmer (commercial farmers are predominantly white) is still wiped-out at 130/100 000. Compare this to the rates of their ancestral countries, at 2/100 000.

Remember, “Read my lips: no new taxes”? Hahahahahahahaha, those old jokes are evergreen.

    It doesn’t matter in the least what Hillary Clinton promises. Remember the promises Barack Hussein Obama made when he was campaigning? Some people believed enough of those promises to think that an Obama presidency would be distinguishable (in some ways, at least) from a George W Bush presidency. Well, they were wrong about that, weren’t they?

    Obama is as much a liar as Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. None of them cares for the Afro-American public. For these Blacks are political guinea-pigs to be used like their masters in Israel have been doing for decades.

    In America’s 350-year history, only two Afro-Americans have reached at the top of political ladder; Gen. Colin Powell and Barack Obama. There are more Senators and Congressmen representing 2% Jewish population than 18% Black population.

    Comparing apartheid South Africa with United States shows Obama’s historic ignorance. In south Africa, the White occupiers remained in minority while in the US the Whites have slaughtered more than 90% of the Natives.

    If Afro-Americans are smart, they should vote Green’s Jill Stein under the current circumstances.

    On Friday, the US Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein in a statement on her campaign website called for an “independent” 9/11 investigation as the previous investigation undertaken by the Bush administration was full of “omissions and lies”.

    Jill Stein said the Bush administration’s initial 9/11 inquiry was not adequate and “was not given enough money, time, or access to relevant classified information,” saying that “a new inquiry is necessary.” She said that a new inquiry would use independent research and would not be “dominated by members with an interest in protecting the reputation and careers of foreign affairs and intelligence communities.”

    The official 9/11 Commission closed in 2004 and detailed the failures of the CIA and FBI in preventing the attacks. The extensive report was criticized for conflicts of interests from a number of investigating commissioners.

These are smart guys, real smart. So, maybe they have an ulterior motive. Maybe that’s why they’ve stuck with the same failed policies all these years.
    But if they have an ulterior motive, then what is it? What are they trying to achieve?
    The easiest way to answer that question is by simply following the money. We’ve already seen that QE and zero rates have done nothing for growth, so –the question is– where have these policies had the greatest impact?
    Why, the stock market, of course!
    It’s a subsidy, a gift, a handout. Even so, $3 trillion is a lot of money, enough money to light a fire under stocks and send them into the stratosphere. Which it has. But let’s not kid ourselves, stocks didn’t triple because production, earnings and growth are all going great-guns. That’s not it at all, in fact, they’re all unusually weak. Stocks are in record territory because the Fed’s relentless interventions have kept them elevated, which has propped up the insolvent banking system and generated gigantic profits for Wall Street.”

    Are you a Pygmy or a Hottentot? Those were the only two groups inhabiting most of South Africa when the Dutch landed and claimed the land. The Bantus were still well to the North and East. Of course the Bantu would have treated the Pygmy and Hottentot much worse than the Dutch did.

    As late as 2003, the Bantu have been cannibalizing the Pygmies. Verily, Verily a supreme culture on display.

    Some have said that at the rate the Bantu were migrating, they might have reached the Atlantic Ocean at Cape Town some time in the 1970’s. Great explorers (or anything else) they were/are not.

    As regards South Africa, I would suggest that the underlying dynamic is the desire of the rich for cheap labor.

    What on earth am I talking about? Well South Africa used to have a low fertility rate (black and white, thank you very much), and became pretty prosperous. If they had been allowed to remain prosperous perhaps the blacks and whites could have come to some accommodation – we’ll never know, but shared prosperity is a great healer.

    But the elites wanted cheap labor, so they imported massive numbers of people from other, poorer African countries. And there is no social dynamite greater than a mass of angry young men with no clear path to getting a decent job and supporting a family…

    Now the South African elites are black – and they are still importing massive numbers of immigrants from the rest of Africa in order to keep wages low. Because greed is color blind.

    Now native black South Africans are protesting all these other black Africans that are being imported into the country, and of course, the natives are being slandered as racist.

    Absolutely right. The situation in SA is very different than the situation here. Whites were, and are, a tiny minority in SA and they were oppressed on all sides by the good whites of other Western nations; led, predictably, by leftist Jews with a hate on for the goyim and an unnatural faith in the nobility of the savage.

    Totally different scenario going forward. Few of us are left with any illusions concerning the nobility of the savage and we know that we are being lied to by our elites. Furthermore, we understand their innate hostility to white people and our civilization. Hence, we have developed a bit of immunity to their lies and manipulations. Furthermore, and most importantly, we are armed.

    Even Ms. Mercer has recognized her previous folly in supporting black rule and has come to a more realistic appraisal of reality. This understanding has come too late for the white people of South Africa, but it is a welcome understanding regardless.

    Oh and for those who don’t know, America isn’t Africa, the ME or South America. So all those blacks who own Africa and fight for their rights here in the states are on the wrong continent.

    The American Indians gave land and shared the land with the persecuted Christians. There were no troubles until all the other denominations showed up especially those hostile to the persecuted Christians (Jews and Catholics). Blacks Mexicans Catholics, Jews Muslims etc are the thieves who are stealing the land from the Indians and the Christians who lived on and shared the land together. African’s Jews and South Americans like the Palestinians who and other muslims who squat here because they really couldn’t care less about someone elses land as they claim. Hawaii didn’t become a state until August 21, 1959 so this isn’t their land either, like Puerto Rico, Cuba, The Babamas, Haiti etc . Blacks weren’t required to fight any wars either I guess because maybe they are African? Well they got their special rights by JFK and then he was assassinated and they were now official with rights and the blacks were drafted just once during the Vietnam conflict but they been special with special rights ever since. They had the right to vote after the Civil War, can’t figure out why they lost all those rlghts though, they were elected to all kinds of offices and given education and all but something maybe a war that their rights got taken away?

    The treatment of the Christian family at Ruby Ridge and people at Waco should be a clear give away as to how some Christians and groups are treated. People want to kill the Westboro Baptists for their speech but when a Muslim shoots a bunch of people everyone makes excuses and says things like “well more people die in accidents than from terrorists”,.

    Dear Ms. Mercer,

    Is it true, as other posters have alluded, that your father decided to ‘fight for a cause in a meaningful, sustained way’ to end apartheid in South Africa? Is it then true that your family are now responsible for the genocide of White South Africans, the economic destruction of a once-prosperous country, and the World-leading HIV epidemic?

    Perhaps it would have been better for all if your family had done, as you put it ‘nothing in their sorry lives’. Because, while we appreciate that your family has ‘advanced discourse’ (and perhaps their own consciousness), the net effect on the world at large has been overwhelmingly negative.

    Perhaps this is the difference between your race and my race? Your race has a neurotic, pressing need to dissect, analyse, ‘understand’, and ‘improve’ absolutely everything, INCLUDING other people’s societies. And then when you’ve finished learning from your experiences, you disown the fruits of your actions and move on to a fresh substrate for more experimentation. Good for you, good for your publisher, perhaps even good for your people’s intellectual life, but very very bad for the landed people whom you ‘grace’ with your transient presence.

    Please try to understand the damage your people do. And please try to understand how incredibly livid landed people become when left to deal with a situation your people created and have since disowned. In the mind of landed people, the perpetual cycle of meddling and disowning that is characteristic of your race is absolutely poisonous.

    Please do not blame us when we hate the sinner, as well as the sin.

    If Ms. Mercer supported black rule I suspect it was in the face of the baying of the goodwhite hounds, including Jews with their apparent perennial obsession with fixing a fallen world. She was in good company with all the good whites here in the U.S. who swooned over MLK and the “promise” of the “civil rights revolution.” I remember being at university in St. Louis in the early ’70s and that translated for me in seeing black thugs filter onto campus and making some kind of student lounge into a “thugs only” affair, replete with loud music and theft. In short, it didn’t start well and I never saw anything after that to convince me that it was an aberration. The attempt at conciliation and extra support only led to more ridiculous demands and concessions leaving us at the current high-water mark of destroyed cities, bastardy, parasitism, crime, and a political life that “twisted and distorted” doesn’t even begin to describe. Paul Kersey’s term “Black Ruled America” pretty well captures the full disaster.

    Well, the decay, crime, and black hatred of whites is out there for all to see and whites fleeing west from Philadelphia are meeting the whites fleeing east from Pittsburgh. “Negro fatigue” is at an all-time high and won’t ever recede to the levels of more naive times.

    The whole Western world is possessed of an infantalism, a dependency, a passivity, and a complacency that has amounted to a perfect storm for whites. But as Robert Louis Stevenson observed, ”Everybody, soon or late, sits down to a banquet of consequences.” And the threat of imminent hanging focuses the concentration in a wondrous manner.

    Then there all those Christian churches who are raking in big money from Uncle Sam to import Muslims.

    Lets for example take a look at Twin Falls Idaho, where a bunch of Muslims were imported by local churches and welcomed with open arms by the local business community who hired them over white Americans and city hall that only saw a increase revenue stream because of the checks they get every month from Uncle Sam.

    Did I mention local authorities covered up the rape of children by Muslims? Oh yeah that’s a side benefit.

    Variations of this go on across the country.

    Jews didn’t put a gun to these peoples heads. No the political and business class wanted this because it makes them richer.

    The rest of the whites looked the other way as long as they had a fat wad of money in the bank. They are as guilty as the others because they knowingly ignored what is going on.

    Look if the Chambers of Commerce thought open borders and immigration was bad, it would stop in 24 hours.

    Israel actively helped South Africa with technology for systems to deliver the warheads, provided her with tritium and cooperated in testing. South Africa brought Israeli atomic scientists into the country and the two countries exchanged secret scientific intelligence. Importantly, Israel helped South Africa to build the longer range missiles she desired to deliver nuclear warheads. Israel also provided South Africa with thirty grams of tritium, a radioactive substance that increases the explosive power of thermonuclear weapons.”

    White identity politics of Trump? How about a common sense approach to economics, trade, foreign affairs, national security, the Constitution and SCOTUS? Apparently what works is of no concern or consequence to you and everything good must be somehow full of demographics? Why must liberals always focus on color, on race, on ethnicity? What as economic or relationship policy between nations have to do with this? Perhaps in a homogeneous society, but ours is hardly that. Insecurities over being a member of the majority? Surely. Grow up and deal with the truth. Western Civilization has been and still is the dominant force of the modern world.

    As Americans, we should be far more concerned with what works rather than with what feels good. Based upon the idealism of our largely leftist teachers and the pontificators of America’s “ruling class”, the New Totalitarians of the Democrat-Socialist Party (they are no longer “Democratic”) it is “feelgoodism” and pretend economics that rules. Most Americans operate with difficulty in a crony-capitalist economy with a fall-back onto the free stuff offered by the forever shifting fascist leadership who predictably draws power from those on the take. What a cozy, convenient relationship. Government workers now surpass manufacturing jobs in America 1.8 to 1. H1-B visas are fine to displace Americans, for foreigners are more important than our own. The haves always get richer, the spread always gets wider between them and the have-nots as a system approaches any form of totalitarianism, but s’ok, it’s always the capitalists fault, the Republican’s fault. Democrat economics, the economics of crony-capitalism of big-government tax & spend Keynesian planning is a failure, a huge failure and the citizens are paying a huge price for their ignorance. But perhaps that’s the way it should be. “We have found the enemy and he is us.” (Pogo) “A republic if you can keep it.” (Franklin) Human frailties and the “Kool-Aid” of liberalism is just too strong a social aphrodisiac.

    Now, if one reads BDS Declaration, he will find to his surprise that BDS is not against the Jewish occupation of 78% of the historic Palestine. BDS uses the word “occupation” for the West Bank and Gaza Strip but not even for East Jerusalem which all were occupied by Israel as result of its 1967 War of Aggression. The BDS demands from Israel; 1) Ending its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands occupied in June 1967 and dismantling the wall, 2) Recognizing the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality (meaning Israel has the right to exist within pre-1967 borders); and 3) Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN Resolution 194.

    I remember in the 1990’s when gangtsa’s and thugs started breaking out of the ‘hood. Before that it was mostly confined to a certain segment of the population. The entertainment industry gave that stuff top billing and it was all over MTV and then in everyone’s living room. We need to fight back against that culture – and especially the attraction it has in the youth. Antisocial hooliganism is not cool and should be disgraced wherever it shows its face and no matter who engages in it.

    Heh were you one of the south Asian convenience store owners in the ghetto? Seems they’ve taken over from previous east Asians. Crime has declined significantly since the early 1990s peak, though this may be more due to draconian sentencing: Trump is called the law and order candidate now, but Clinton definitely continued and intensified his Republican predecessors’ polices.

    Hey Marcus,

    No, but when I lived in SoCal I used to frequent South Central LA quite a bit and knew many Black people. I don’t know how the demographics have changed since it has been over a decade of me being there. From what I hear many of those places have become more and more Latino.

    Is my experience skewed? Most definitely. I was mostly around Black converts not your average Black person of the area. They were very decent people and were trying to raise solid families and did not want their kids into thug culture. I also knew a Black imam in Northern California very well (he performed my nikah) who started up a private school for the kids in their community because they didn’t want their children soaking up the same poisonous culture. My recent experience with a group of Blacks were a bunch of converts (about 8-10 families) that made hijra from Milwaukee to live in the greater Chicago area. Almost all of the men did some time in prison in the past. They primarily moved here for religious studies and are currently learning much of the same stuff I have been posting about – and will likely be passing me up soon. Their primary teacher is a white convert, an eloquent alim-level scholar of the Hanafi school who I know personally. They give him the due respect and immense deference he deserves as their teacher of sacred knowledge. I once had the pleasure of seeing them interact when they were helping their teacher move his family – white/black nonsense was nowhere to be seen.

    These people have nothing in common with ghetto thug culture other than sharing skin tone.

    Lucky, I’ve never been to the either the West Coast or Chicago. I’ve done some international traveling, but pitifully little in the states. I side with NOI on race, though I think Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X became mainstream Sunnis later in their life

    Why you self-hating white-devil! 😉

    Yeah – most of NOI went Sunni under the leadership of the late Imam Warith Deen Muhammad (son of Elijah Muhammad) – that was how many of the mosques were aligned in LA in African American majority areas. Once Farrakhan passes away, I wouldn’t give NOI many years before collapse. I think he is the only thing keeping it together.

    Malcolm (ra) was an amazing man – he didn’t suffer fools much; I think he would have had some very choice words (not at all positive) about the nonsense that we see from BLM – especially the later Malcolm – the earlier one was still getting his coordinates right.

    The hard part is: have we reached a cultural tipping point and did we reach an economic one as well? That is the frustrating part of all this. Thus, trust me, I can get as cutting as anyone else about our current race relations out of this frustration. Its tough to get beyond it when things are so chaotic, so I cannot claim total innocence in my own harsh criticisms. I guess its from a desire of wanting people to wake up to the fact that this racial animosity that African Americans are being inculcated with (from both black and white radicals, and enabled by the naive libs) is not leading anywhere good, and its best to reverse our course before we cannot. But we are not reversing it, its being promoted instead. I try to be objective, and still get caught up in the destructive rhetoric myself; so how much worse is it for those who intentionally choose to be subjectively hostile. I am afraid we are heading to some dark times, and its not going to be good for any of us (contrary to what some believe). The ponzinomics will lead to scarcity, and the racial balkanization will lead to violence. And I’m afraid that there is no stopping it. Maybe when it all hits bottom, then we will learn our lesson, and cooperate & rebuild (but honestly, I do not see it happening before then).
    Protect yourself the best you can, good luck & God Bless.

    Hey joef,

    Sure thing, but your comments are a far cry from the nonsense I read from those who either; a) seem to lick their lips over the prospects of a coming race war or b) would like to institute horrendous policies of collective punishment (but don’t have the guts to do it themselves, but wouldn’t mind hiring a jack-booted bureaucracy to carry out such things – gotta keep one’s civilized conscience clean). You’ve been through some things that many haven’t and witnessed some of the thuggery first hand. Yet, you try to balance that with the faith you hold and the acknowledgement that we are all responsible moral actors and that if justice is escaped in this life, well, there will be settling of accounts at some point after.

    Maybe when it all hits bottom

    I hope it doesn’t come to that. Collapse of societies are very scary things. If you read about the desperation during the 100 Years War or during the bubonic plague – it is a shock to the system. But if it needs rebuilding, people with optimism, faith and hope peppered with realistic understanding of human dynamics, like yourself, will be essential.

    Again, thanks for walking that line to keep that balance.

    Peace and may God preserve you and yours in the times to come.

    There seem to be a lot of South African Jews in Australia .
    They are even unpopular with established Australian Jewry ( “too pushy” etc )
