The word “segregation” is becoming an obsession of the Whole Woke World. From David Rozado’s database of New York Times’ word usage:

So, I suspect we will eventually start to hear the argument that America having borders that aren’t wholly open causes Segregation, which we all know is Bad.

  1. But it will still be a question if gated communities are Bad.

  2. Do you really have to ask that question? It’s already racist to advocate for borders, ipso facto borders must cause segregation.

    If the Moors openly allowed segregation between different religions/ethnicities then who are we to say we can’t have that but for Whites and non-Whites?

  4. Maybe a dumb question, but has Rozado factored in the number of total words written each year, for comparison purposes? I can’t find it at the link.

  6. As the Boomerlibs die off, their whole life is flashing before their collective eyes and they’re reliving their youth in the 60s (Bull Connor, etc.), where it all began for them.

  7. AndrewC says:

    Would it also be racist if the IRS didn’t collect income taxes on people living in South America? After all, if America should eliminate it’s borders so that anyone who wants to come in could do so, wouldn’t the elimination of borders mean that the federal government has jurisdiction everywhere? Or am I missing something in the logic of how open borders works?

    I once joked here about “global apartheid” re the West having reservations about throwing open its doors to all comers.

    But of course it turns out that Global Apartheid is a thing:

    The paper argues that “global apartheid” might replace terms
    such as “transnationalism,” “multiculturalism,” and “cosmopolitanism” in order to name the structures of control that securitize the north and foster violence in the south, that gate the north and imprison the south, and that create a new militarized form of apartheid on a global level.

    Apartheid has been on the comeback trail since 2005

  11. Our open borders have made it more difficult to desegregate our schools. Over the last 20 years we have allowed 30 million non-whites to migrate into our nation, resulting in more non-white school children and not enough whites to integrate our schools. Thus whites are now a minority of our school aged children making it near impossible to desegregate our failing schools

    Why would Indians not think that fraudulent bond documents were acceptable when no one makes proper (or any?) checks to see if their strange and unlikely stories of being asylum seekers from persecution back in India are true? Indian newspapers are typically quite forthright about this:

    https://www.firstpost.com/india/braving-hardships-even-death-record-number-of-indians-are-travelling-hellish-road-to-the-american-paradise-6957791.html

    There was, as the travel agent in Hoshiarpur had promised the teenager’s parents, a man waiting for him at Mariscal Sucre International Airport. Mahinder Singh, Harinder’s father, had sold off land to make the passage possible; the family had been assured the Rs 25 lakh fee included border-to-border transit.

    Following a night in a Quito hotel room, where he flushed his passport and identification papers down the toilet, Harinder found himself being bussed down to Guayaquil, gateway to the Galapagos. Then, he was put on a boat headed north across the Pacific, packed into the hold with some 25 other migrants…

    Ensuring his first steps in the United States would involve handcuffs was, in fact, key to the plans crafted by Sukhjit’s trafficker in Kapurthala. To immigration officers in Harlingen, in the Rio Grande valley, Sukhjit said he was at threat because of his connections to the Khalistan movement. That, in turn, allowed him to file for political asylum, using a lawyer arranged by the trafficker.

    There are no police records or newspaper records in Kapurthala, a Punjab Police spokesperson told Firspost, indicating the New Jersey resident, then just 20 years, had ever been linked to political violence—but then, the asylum system doesn’t involve transnational investigation…

    Indian asylum applications are, to those familiar with the region, often bizarre. In one 2011 case, reviewed by Firstpost, Bharat Panchal claimed he’d fled India because of political violence directed at Hindus in Gujarat. In another, a 27-year-old woman from Punjab claimed she’d been gang-raped because her husband worked for the Indian National Congress.

    There are cases filed claiming to be at risk for supporting Khalistan, for supporting the Bharatiya Janata Party, even for caste-related issues.

    “I won’t take their cases anymore”, Texas immigration attorney Cathy Potter told the Los Angeles Times in 2011. “It undermines my credibility. I don’t want anything to do with this”.

    Lynching skyrocketed from 2014-2018. I think this increase is significant WRT to the rise of whitephobia in the Great Awokening.

    https://media-analytics.op-bit.nz/timeline

    Spike in 2000 possibly owing to the Matt Shepard drug deal gone bad and the murder of James Byrd. Both in 1998.

    “Lynch” has declined.

    “Segregation is good. You can’t have life without it.”

    Personal segregation, i.e. you choose not to be around certain groups of people, now that is your liberty, with the understanding that if you are in public, there will be those kinds that you prefer not to associate with. Just be mild mannered and carry on your business.

    But as far as legal segregation, that is NEVER coming back, as it was other than good. Blame the Southrons for not being able to put into consistent practice a simple phrase–separate but equal. Deservingly so, they got their comeuppance.

    Does segregation cause borders?

  22. Tattoos don’t cause skin damage. Tattoos are skin damage.

    Likewise, borders are segregation.

    segregate (v.)
    1540s, from Latin segregatus, past participle of segregare “set apart, lay aside; isolate; divide,” literally “separate from the flock,” from *se gregare, from se “apart from” (see secret (n.)) + grege, ablative of grex “herd, flock” (from PIE root *ger– “to gather”).

    Weren’t ghettos originally exclusive areas where Jews could live freely in majority Christian cities?

  24. @Bill B.

    This has nothing to do with Indians.

    It has to do with the fact that we have an “elite”–manning the legal system, including subalterns in the public bureaucracy–who are contemptuous of the American people and nation, and worse, actively take the side of foreigners trying to scam their way in.

    Once that’s the case … scammers will take advantage.

    Criminal Justice Reform, “oppressing” illegal aliens:

    WASHINGTON (AP) — More than 3,100 federal inmates were being released Friday by the Bureau of Prisons as part of a criminal justice overhaul signed into law last year.

    The Bureau of Prisons declined to provide specific details about the inmates being released, citing privacy concerns. Nearly 900 were to be turned over to other law enforcement agencies because of detainers filed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement and local authorities, according to Hugh Hurwitz, the acting director of the Bureau of Prisons.

    “But as far as legal segregation, that is NEVER coming back, as it was other than good.”

    Segregation was good for the white population, but short-changed the precious, precious POC. As you describe above, personal segregation is the only recourse. But will Antifa and BLM travel up from Pullman to invade white spaces in eastern Washington as an act of resistance? Probably.

    Indians generally don’t have a neighborhood culture, they’re either indoors or they’re somewhere else doing something, they tend not to hang around outside like whites and blacks; they have also always tended to helicopter parenting. People who have lived next door to Indians will bear this out. So what she’s claiming is actually a meaninglessly ordinary truth made into a lie from the mass-dream of Donald Trump eating the sun.

    What is segregation/apartheid/whatever but a form of internal political boundary?

    Lack of borders and/or enforcement of same definitely seems to cause something — pay no attention, just consume more product.

    “Segregation was good for the white population, but short-changed the precious, precious POC.”

    Segregation was good only for a certain segment of the white population. There were quite a number of Southerners who opposed it, but unfortunately kept their mouth shut because Southrons would employ brutal violence against anyone who dare challenge the status quo.

    “But will Antifa and BLM travel up from Pullman to invade white spaces in eastern Washington as an act of resistance? Probably.”

    Those are not “white spaces”.

    No, they segregate by race with a vengeance.

    In Quito, the locals don’t even flush toilet paper because the plumbing isn’t robust enough to take it. They keep a bucket by the toilet for used paper that you have to empty regularly.

    Good luck flushing a passport.

    If you, as a US citizen, were to move to South America, the IRS would still be after you, even for income you earn over there.

    So there’s that.
