    I was born in 1983, when the mentions of slavery was the absolute LOWEST according to that chart.

    Just think about it… a mere 15 years after blacks had been given full civil rights, the nation by and large had an attitude of “let bygones be bygones”.

    36 years later, whitey just can’t hear the end of it.

    30 or 40 years from now, 18 year olds won’t even realize there was an America.

    i’ve seen former KGB agents describe how this process works, step by step, with timelines in years and decades. i think we should probably sketch out a more concrete timeline of how the United States will be fully retconned by the coming single party monopoly. decade by decade, until finally we arrive at a year where 18 year olds have as much accurate information on the US as we have on Rome.

  9. OT: Epstein’s death was either a brilliantly executed conspiracy, or just a conspiracy of laziness and incompetence. The jury is still out.

    At least eight Bureau of Prisons staffers knew that strict instructions had been given not to leave multimillionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein alone in his cell, yet the order was apparently ignored in the 24 hours leading up to his death, according to people familiar with the matter.

    The fact that so many prison officials were aware of the directive — not just low-level correctional officers, but supervisors and managers — has alarmed investigators assessing what so far appears to be a stunning failure to follow instructions, these people said. Like others, they spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss ongoing investigations. They declined to identify the eight. https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/at-least-eight-jail-officials-knew-jeffrey-epstein-was-not-to-be-left-alone-in-cell/2019/08/21/28cefc8e-c437-11e9-9986-1fb3e4397be4_story.html

  11. The NYT is really putting itself out there with its bold and controversial anti-slavery stance in 2019.

    So Brave!

    By the way, the NYT has been published since 1851. I’d be really curious to see what they were saying about slavery, the South, and the “negro question” back when these things really were controversial issues and there was no 20/20 hindsight virtue signalling.

    If anyone out there has time on their hands and lives near a good library with these archived docs on microfiche, this could make a fun research project.

  19. @Diggs

    Good point. I was 14 in 1983 and attending High School in Philadelphia , a catholic school which was 14% Black. We did not experience the anti-white rhetoric in the media nor in our classrooms which made race relations better.

    At that time it was still possible to believe that Affirmative action would help narrow the income gap and was seen by many to be a form of reparations. This was a decade before the Bell Curve was published , which did impact the discourse , as it provided solid evidence for why affirmative action and all the social programs aimed toward helping blacks had failed.

    But I suspect much of the focus on slavery and reparations today is due to the failure of programs like Head Start , school busing and free lunches , section 8 housing, affirmative action etc…Trillions has been spent to help Blacks , yet the gaps remain. Harder today to blame prejudice bigots , since all the S&P 500 firms are run by liberals who fully support affirmative action and racial quotas, and the majority of white Americans even voted for a black president…thus they look to blame Slavery which ended 150 years ago…we can never blame Black culture or site their Negroid heritage (DNA) as a reason they remain far behind white and Asians in achieving success.

    In 1983, Michael Jackson was the king of pop music, Eddie Murphy was the king of the box office, and by the following year Bill Cosby was king of TV. There really seemed to be a post-racial zeitgeist, and under a republican president no less.

    By the time Reagan left office, gangster rap ruled the airwaves, Spike Lee was making his long line of whiny movies, and Cosby’s clean image was dismissed as irrelevant to true blackness. I guess he wasn’t keeping it real enough.

    Philandro Castile, 5 arrests driving on suspended license – no jail time = pretty fair empathy.

    Texas trooper fired after ticketing red light-blowing football player whose girlfriend’s aunt is in hospital = good empathy.

    Death penalty not permitted for juveniles because black 17-year olds can’t stop killing = really good empathy.

    California eliminates 60-year old Felony Murder rule because blacks can’t stop driving buddies to home invasions = outstanding food empathy.

    This is primarily because of the WASP-Jew elites exemplified by the likes of Martha Nussbaum. They like to imagine that they are an intermediary class who can interpret the exhortations by the powerful yet misunderstood blacks.

    Prior to the 1960’s, American textbooks had far more references to native Americans. The elite levels actually purposely devalued American Indian content in favor of black content.

    Native American emphasis is much preferable to black emphasis. Most of all, it would seem to encourage outdoors exploration.

    And for that matter, Hispanic-Latino emphasis is far preferable to black emphasis. Black emphasis seems to make everything worse.

    I was born in 1983, when the mentions of slavery was the absolute LOWEST according to that chart.

    Black themes were bound to make a comeback because of what blacks mean NOW. People care about the past of those who are HOT now. Blacks are hot due to sports, music, and sex culture. They are like demigods worshiped by so many for their awesomeness and badassness. This is why it seems especially unjust for blacks to be mired in poverty or have a history of tragedy.

    I guarantee, if blacks were not successful in sports, music, pop culture, etc, no one would give a damn, and NYT’s effort to gain traction about Black Tragedy would be mostly ignored.

    Likewise, the excessive attention for Jews and homos have to do with their power and success in the NOW. If Hitler had fawned over the Jews and killed only millions of Gypsy losers, who’d much about the Gypsocaust?

    Just like people love to read biographies about famous celebrities, people care about the histories and tragedies of those who are considered ‘cool’ or ‘awesome’ today.
    In a libertine, hedonistic, and materialistic culture of modernity, Americans(and people the world over) are totally mad about sports, pop music, and a much sexualized culture(that is peddled to even young ones by Disney and etc). As blacks dominate the badass fields, they are seen as gods, and that’s why people especially sympathize with black plight or tragedy.

    Thus, 1619 is ‘birth of god’ mythologizing.

    Yes – and keep in mind that the Left still genuinely believes that genetics cannot possibly have anything to do with black dysfunction. So white racism HAS to be the cause. And if blacks are still failing after so much money and effort to lift them up, then white racism must be even more insidious than we thought.
    The better white people behave, the more they will be hated, since black failure will stand as proof that the whites must be up to something in spite of their nice behavior. The longer blacks continue to fail, the more shrill and angry the Left will become towards whites.

    About as many people as care about the Armenian genocide, or about the Holodomor.

    Honestly it’s hard to comprehend all this. I think largely it comes down to people idolizing social grievances and civil rights activists. Smugness, self-righteousness, intolerance, and social media and migration patterns turning our lives into an echo chamber. Kids these days (and by “kids” I mean people who are sometimes well into their fifties) have little to do but sit around on the internet all day and yell.

    Look at the obsession with removing Confederate statues. The war was over 154 years ago. The South was allowed to make their peace and honor their dead and their “heroes.” But suddenly five generations after the war, after the end of slavery, after the end of Jim Crow, after the rotting of one Southern city and town after another thanks to forced integration, after the deaths of literally hundreds of thousands of blacks at the hands of other blacks, and after reaching a point where the vast majority of black children are now born without fathers, they decide that the worst thing ever is to allow the statue of a dead Confederate general to stand in a town square or a park. It must be the ghosts of those Confederate generals causing all the mess, forcing blacks to murder each other, forcing them to shoot heroine, not do their homework, and get pregnant by any random dude.

    Maybe we should do a study in a few years, and visit all the towns that have removed the statues to see if blacks have become any better off than those in towns that still have them. Or maybe we can just look to black populations in cities like Detroit, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Baltimore, and St Louis. I have a hunch there aren’t many dead Confederate generals hanging around those places. I’m sure blacks there have all turned into model minorities (or model majorities, as the case may be).

    1984 marked the beginning of the crack wars. National murder rates climbed because black murder rates skyrocketed. Between 1984 and 1989, the homicide rate for black males aged 14 to 17 more than doubled, and the homicide rate for black males aged 18 to 24 increased nearly as much. During this period, the black community also experienced a 20–100% increase in fetal death rates, low birth-weight babies, weapons arrests, and the number of children in foster care

    The legal measures that were enacted at that time to address the crack epidemic and crack wars, that are today attacked as racist, were encouraged by black leaders in both churches and politics.

    We live in a new age of prudery, but the left has so thoroughly erased the language needed to be prudish that people have to find new words. The sex trafficking issue is just anti-prostitution by another name. But people can’t frame it as anti-prostitution because everybody knows hookers are just sex workers, hearts of gold, workers like everyone else, providing a service, consenting adults, they do it in Europe, etc, etc. So they changed the focus to the pimps and johns.

    You see a similar thing with the transgender stuff. Deep down, people know sex (I mean gender) is important, but if you say it directly, you get in trouble. So it comes out all crazy and distorted with the 57 genders and the multiplicity of new pronouns. But if you look down through the murk to the bottom of it, the basic motivation is that gender is important.

    The further Liberal dogma veers from observable reality, the more propaganda and threats against dissidents.

    Even what passes for “conservative” is involved. Cities are dungheaps because of the Democrats, not the people who live in the cities. A group of Trump voters cleaned up a neighborhood in West Baltimore. Why can’t the locals clean up their own neighborhood and keep it clean? How long will it remain clean? The locals lack an incentive to keep their neighborhood because White outsiders will do it for them.

    It would seem that a substantial proportion of blacks cannot function in a 1st world society constructed by whites or asians. Maybe they are only genetically suited to the tribal pastoralist/hunter-gatherer societies they had prior to European contact. The same goes for the indigenous tribes of Australia/New Zealand/North America. The amount of alcoholism and violence in those communities is staggering. I don’t know what the solution is for the indigenous. Blacks should be repatriated back to Africa.

    Really what the left wants is for Western countries to change so that maladapted minorities can “flourish”. It will be an impossibility to achieve that and still have a successful country. Leftist HBDers would argue that it’s not these people’s faults and we should support them as any other person who has disabilities. The redistribution of wealth would be crushing and we would still have massive amounts of violence.

    Not really, no. This is what the media masters want us to think, but relatively few people actually do in real life (and those who do tend to be losers to begin with). Even if many fools (in absolute terms) do live out their lives in a lotus-eating bubble of television and Netflix, the vast majority of Americans are still (relatively) close enough to reality to know better.

    The better explanation for the escalating hysteria is, as always, the simpler one: the opinion-making classes (or rather, their owners) have decided to make this a bigger issue, so it becomes one. First in so-called intellectual circles and in the controlled media, then by osmosis gradually in reality as well.

    It would be interesting to know how much change in reporting there’s been (during that same period of time) on modern day slavery that still exists in Africa.

    Blacks should be repatriated back to Africa.

    This was the solution that was proposed virtually from Day 1 and it was never workable even then and it sure isn’t now after 400 years. You can’t send American Blacks “back” to Africa because they have never been there. Most of them are 30%+ white – should you send 70% of their bodies to Africa and the rest to Europe? Africa is vast and American blacks are all mixed up now. If we decided to send the Irish back to “Europe” would it make sense to send them to Greece? What if you are a typical American Irish-Italian-German hybrid – where do they send you?

    For better or for worse, we are stuck with black people. It was America’s original sin to drag them over here, but we’re stuck with them now.

    Any solution to any problem has to start with an accurate diagnosis before you can apply the cure. Unfortunately, we live in an age where the opposite is true. Society and government start from the premise that all racial gaps are due to racism (and in fact race doesn’t even exist and has no genetic basis at all). This is like believing that disease is caused by an excess of bad humors in the blood – the “cure” that then follows (bleeding the patient) is of course wrong too. As is the case with many failing causes, lack of empirical proof or success only causes the proponents to double down even more. E. German academic journals were expounding on the validity of Marxist-Leninist economic theory right up until the day that the Berlin Wall fell. As the doubts grew, any dissenting voices were repressed all the more. But if you attempt to posit a different or genetic cause then you are a “racist” and beyond the pale of polite society. As long as this situation prevails, there’s really no hope for a solution.

    What would a realistic solution look like? It would start with a realistic appraisal of black strengths (and weaknesses) and propensity toward violence. There is a small % of black people who are intelligent and calm enough (Obama, although not actually African American is their poster boy) to thrive in white society on equal terms. The rest need a much more structured environment than what is currently being offered (until they end up in prison, where things are REALLY structured). Ideally this structure would come from within the black community itself, since people hate taking orders from outsiders. Black education (for those who do not show mainstream intellectual talent at an early age) would be aimed more at blacks strengths in the kinetic, improvisational, musical, athletic and visio-spatial realm because they are never going to learn material with a high level of abstraction anyway. How you could get jobs for 13% of the population out of this, I can’t say, but what we are doing now is just throwing $ down the drain for the 1/2 or more of blacks who just don’t have the intellectual HP to benefit from an education in abstract concepts.

    It’s not just the new prudery (although the new prudery doesn’t like the idea of heterosexual white men having sex – they’d prefer that they all be incels). It’s the notion that only (mainly white) men have agency, so everything (bad) is ultimately their fault (just as everything good in America is attributable to blacks according to the 1619 Project).

    Sure women can have sex with men, even for pay, if they freely give consent, but such consent is usually absent entirely or is coerced by men. If the woman has had a drink, that negates her consent. If the man made false promises, that negates the consent, retroactively if the promise is broken later. If the consent is not expressly given in words, then it is negated. If the woman consents to sex act A it doesn’t mean that she consents to any other act. If the woman is 16 or 17 years old, that negates her consent in many jurisdictions.

    Even if consent appears to be given, it is in the context of a racist, sexist society where women have no other choice and if society could be remade to be a fair and just place then such consent would not be forthcoming in most cases, so even the consensual sex that is going on now is not REALLY consensual. In a just society every woman’s inner lesbian would come out and they would only have sex with other women, according to some (lesbian) feminists.

    So consensual sex is OK – it’s actually great and glorious. But most sex with (white) men is not consensual – it’s tantamount to rape and the rapists should be punished accordingly. By redefining the issue in terms of “consent” rather than “sex” and defining consent to be virtually impossible you can bring about the new prudery.

    Let’s hope that “African American repatriation” becomes an actual thing that may be searched for on LexisNexis, much sooner than later.

    That ain’t happening.

    Blacks aren’t sharp, but they aren’t that stupid. Their incessant whining has been enabled and encouraged by the reigning minoritarian ideology. But push, come to shove, they aren’t so stupid as to believe they are better off without whitey.

    Like all minoritarianism: the whole point is to wage the finger and how bad, bad, bad white men are and … demand that they let minorities grab a hold of what whites have built.

    That’s point of “slavery!” To guilt trip, demoralized and disempower white gentiles. And for blacks the thinking is “more stuff for me”.

    They ain’t leaving. In fact more and more are coming from Africa to joint the minoritarian feast!

    Two names and ideas immediately jump into my mind when reading this.

    George Washington Carver and Tuskegee Institute
    Louis Farrakhan and Nation of Islam

    I was reading a biography of Lester Young, a great jazz saxophonist who gained fame in the 30s and 40s. What really struck me was Lester’s father, who had attended Tuskegee Institute. He had learned music theory there, and was a multi-instrumentalist. As a graduate, he was expected to give something back to the black community, and he became a schoolteacher, teaching music to poor blacks, tirelessly raising money from the community for equipment for the students, etc. This lasted for quite some years before he made the decision to leave teaching and start a travelling band, where Lester developed his chops as a youngster.

    Louis Farrakhan is on the right page in many ways, and in others he is way out there. His NOI Research Group and their history of blacks and Jews is laser-like in its accuracy. These ideas need to be spread among the black community. Ideally, the black community would learn to forgive the deplorable white community and see that the elites have pitted and continue to pit the two groups against each other to benefit the elite oligarchs. Farrakhan’s ideas about blacks starting businesses and supporting businesses run by blacks is a great idea, but practically we don’t see blacks in the inner city capable and dedicated to this kind of entrepreneurial spirit. It’s the poor Asian immigrants who end up starting the small businesses and working long long hours with family members, building something. Farrakhan must accept this and stop blaming it on racism.

    The homicide rate was relatively low in the mid-1980s. Then blacks fell apart in the later 1980s under the influence of crack and gangsta rap.

    Alex Haley settled a lawsuit yesterday by acknowledging that his world‐renowned book “Roots” contained some material from a relatively unknown novel about slavery that was published nine years earlier.

    The settlement ended the six‐week trial of a suit by Harold Courlander, a 70‐yearold author from Bethesda, Md., who contended there were substantial similarities between “Roots” and his own earlier novel, “The African.” He sued in Federal District Court in Manhattan for more than half the profits of “Roots.”

    How you could get jobs for 13% of the population out of this, I can’t say …

    Actually–outside of the Indian H-1B coders and some Chinese engineers–90% of what immigrants are doing in the US is work that blacks used to perform in the US.

    My dad in–i’ll guess at 1964–leveled our little suburban plot and hired a Mr.Washington to come and build some rock walls to handle the grade separation from the neighbors. He and his two sons and maybe a helper or two did the work–decently done and still standing and looking good today. But i don’t believe the sons or grandsons are in business today. If you hired a contractor today some Vietnamese or Mexicans would show up.

    This mass low-skill immigration blew out the entire sector of unskilled, semi-skilled, skilled-blue-collar that blacks used to work in. They now live off of government employment, welfare, service work (fast food) in competition with Latino immigrants, and white collar affirmative action sinecures.

    The “liberal” program for blacks has been “hire replacements, then encourage them to whine”.

    What Farrakhan needs–and what the black community at large should get–is his own NOI nation.

    Those Asian immigrants wouldn’t be an issue if they were marrying\mating into the black community.

    But endogamous middle man minorities are never good for you. They extract capital and delay, interrupt, flat out block, the formation of skills/businesses in the host community.

    Blacks are perfectly capable of running stores, restaurants, beauty parlors, etc. They won’t do it as well as these Asians, but they’ll do it. Blacks did this under segregation and had much more coherent, much less dysfunctional communities. But thrust in competition with others … blacks will always find themselves at the bottom in most IQ/conscientiousness related work (unless there are Australian aborigines around).

    As with everyone else–if you are an endogamously separate ethnic group … you belong in your own nation. Organize your own affairs. Develop your own talents. Be responsible for yourselves.

    3. The 1619 project and the huge ramp-up in Black generally is basically a hail mary play because blacks are about to become irrelevant. For blacks they’re about to run out of time to cash in their gains. For the system, black people are about to stop being a useful meme.

    I wish … i hope … but i’m not so sure.

    Immigration is certainly has been working to reduce the salience of “black” in American life.

    Our new Latinized, Asianized nation seems to be on a path that would look something more like a much more white/Asian/mestizo version of Brazil where “black” is around–the underclass–but continually declining in percentage and importance and the traditonal American black/white issue no longer defining the racial hierarchy.

    However … Steve’s “World’s Most Important Graph”.

    If this “borders are Nazism!” nonsense festers … we’re in a world of hurt. African immigrants could start bulking up black numbers to where they are again the most dominant minority and we’re hearing about 1619 … forever.

    One hopes TPTB have more sense and realize … uh … maybe that’s not the path to the best/safest looting.

    Or perhaps the automation/robotics revolution will just crater the economic arguments and fracture the globohomo immigrationist coalition. (I’m skeptical anything actually stops them, they seem motivated by power and hate.)

    But nothing is certain at this point.
