I can’t get enough of all these Tennis Temper Tantrum op-eds about how Black Women are Angry about the Angry Black Women stereotype. From the New York Times opinion page:

Serena Williams’s Gift to Naomi Osaka, and Women, at the U.S. Open

Rather than remain silent, she insisted on being heard. Rather than contain herself, she used her rage for the countless women silenced by sexism and racism.

By Salamishah Tillet
Dr. Tillet writes about race and gender.

I bet she does.

Sept. 10, 2018

… In her defiance and dismay, we saw ourselves: women who play by the rules, exceed professional expectations, and yet, still find ourselves constrained by the Angry Black Woman stereotype …

The mounting condemnation of Williams proves that the myth of the Angry Black Woman …

Even as a child I worried about the effects of the Angry Black Woman stereotype.

Professor Tillet of Rutgers is mad as hell about our society’s Angry Black Woman stereotype and she’s not going to take it anymore. Serena has liberated angry black women to act out what they’ve always wanted to do: be black women who are angry.

Seriously, isn’t the lesson of the Current Year that what everybody, deep down inside wants, is to be able to act out in the most racially stereotypical manner imaginable?

That’s who we are.

    I love how this dishonest writer pretends that Serena didn’t call the ump a “liar” and a “thief”, as if those are completely legitimate displays of anger on the court.

    And she claims that “black women are more likely than white victims of domestic violence to be arrested when they call the police to report their abuse or be charged with domestic violence for defending themselves against their assailant.”. I don’t have data, but my own experiences suggest that black women are more likely to initiate domestic violence in the first place than white women are, and they’re likely more likely to go overboard when defending themselves. But these facts don’t fit this author’s lying agenda.

  3. From Wikipedia:

    Salamishah Tillet [...an associate professor of English and Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania.]…earned her B.A. in English and African American Studies…from the University of Pennsylvania…Masters in the Art of Teaching from Brown University…A.M. in English and American Literature…Ph.D. in the History of American Civilization…from Harvard University.

    Tillet was born into a politically conscious household…and spent much of her childhood in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Orange, New Jersey. Tillet states that both of her parents were “inspired by the Black Power movement” and that the origin of her name—Salam meaning peace in Arabic and Shah meaning royalty or kingly in Persian—was a direct inspiration from the movement during the 1970s. Tillet states, “[My parents] interpreted the [syllable] ‘mi’ as black. So of course to my parents, it’s ‘peace, black, majestic.’…

    Unlike the fictional Michael J. Fox character, Alex P. Keaton, in the sitcom Family Ties, who is portrayed as the conservative teenage son of liberal 1980s yuppies, in real life, the children of Sixties black power types end up becoming black power radicals, too, but ensconced well within the establishment.

    As a child, I had the story of The Boy Who Cried Wolf beaten into my head, and for many of us it was a powerful lesson. But The Boy was no doubt a white boy, as was I, so how could we possibly expect black girls or women to get the wisdom it sought to impart since it clearly could not apply to them?

  14. “…isn’t the lesson of the Current Year that what everybody, deep down inside wants, is to be able to act out in the most racially stereotypical manner imaginable?…”

    I am a heterosexual, white male traditionalist and don’t want to act out in any particular way. But maybe failing to act out is the way white, we do it.

    To be specific, when getting beat in a sporting event, we generally try to display good sportsmanship, not break our expensive equipment and harass the refs. Seems like the civilized thing to do.

  15. Jake says:

    Nothing new here. Blacks have long been the type to be furious that you think that if they do not get their way way, they will riot. And if you do not end your hate filled stereotypical thinking, they will riot to show you that they are mad as hell and won’t take it any more.

    And the Mainstream media has always supported them.

    If we had riots tomorrow, led by black multimillionaires, that destroyed 10 trillion in property and killed 500 whites, beating 5000 more, the media and academia would not only blame Whitey but would sing the praises of the Numinous Negroes who have brought peace and justice to AmeriKKKa.

    Again, I must stress that the underlying attitude, the underlying hatred of non-Elite whites by Elite whites, is as old as the US itself – and therefore older, because it springs not from a government but from culture that made subsequent government. Jews did NOT create it. It was in place when 100% of the mainstream/elite media members and academics were WASPs. It s in origin a WASP Elite hatred for all whites they see as non them. Blacks are tools and weapons they use to force the whites they despise to accept being held down.

  16. TheJester says:

    I cannot imagine better support for stereotypes of women being emotional (and on occasion childish) than Serena Williams’ Tantrum for the Ages … and the White feminist and Black female response to it.

    “Rather than remain silent, [Serena] insisted on being heard. Rather than contain herself, she used her rage for the countless women silenced by sexism and racism …”

    “The mounting condemnation of Williams proves that the myth of the Angry Black Woman does not simply deny black women the opportunity to express our full range of human emotions, including frustration. It also serves as a double punishment when we speak out against those injustices aimed at other people and ourselves.” — Salamishah Tillet

    I guess everyone agrees, including Professor Tillet, that Serena threw a tantrum. Tillet suggests that the tantrum was justified to free Black women from the stereotype of Black women being angry … one of the finest examples of cognitive dissonance I’ve ever heard.

    Tillet also insinuates that tantrums are a justifiable form of female expression.

    Tantrum … from Wikipedia:

    A tantrum, temper tantrum, meltdown or hissy fit is an emotional outburst, usually associated with children or those in emotional distress, that is typically characterized by stubbornness, crying, screaming, violence, defiance, angry ranting, a resistance to attempts at pacification, and, in some cases, hitting, and other physically violent behavior. Physical control may be lost; the person may be unable to remain still; and even if the “goal” of the person is met, he or she may not be calmed. A tantrum may be expressed in a tirade: a protracted, angry speech.

  17. theMann says:

    Should any of us care?

    One day the powers that be realized that blacks were never going to cut it at as a motivated proletariat in a technological future. The next day, they began importing Mestizos into our country. Those Mestizos have no problem systemically ethnically cleansing their communities of Blacks. The ongoing low level Race war that results is the defining characteristic of every country from Mexico to Brazil. Blacks are done for in the Americas- abortion + declining IQ’s + ethnic cleansing + relentless hostility to Whites- so again, do we actually care?

    The funny thing is that the PTB have decided the Mestizos aren’t really cutting it in technological society, so they are being systematically replaced with East Asians, who also are likely to have no problem with ethnic cleansing either.

    In the meantime, even as Blacks are an ever declining group in our society, we have the relentless peak Negrolatry, the constant hyping of Blacks in the media everywhere, gigantically beyond their numbers or contributions to our society, foisted upon a nation of non Blacks WHO DO NOT CARE.

    Incidentally, a minor subset of the gigantic indifference normal people have to the gibbering jackasses of Race and Gender.

    Speaking of the racially stereotypical reactions, get a load of Naomi Osaka:

    https://nypost.com/2018/09/08/its-shameful-what-us-open-did-to-naomi-osaka

    When asked if her childhood dream of playing against Williams matched the reality, she politely sidestepped the question.

    “I’m sorry,” Osaka said. “I know that everyone was cheering for her and I’m sorry it had to end like this.”

    She turned to Williams. “I’m really grateful I was able to play with you,” Osaka said. “Thank you.” She bowed her head to Williams, and Williams just took it — no reciprocation, no emotion.

    Apologizing for winning — isn’t that the most Japanese thing ever?

    Yeah, I think that’s what’s really bugging them. The cartoon characterization is so accurate that everyone immediately knows who and what is being represented. He captured her essence perfectly and the left doesn’t like what it sees so they have to bob and weave a new narrative.

    Actually, ff you’re a civic nationalist, this statement is correct, which, of course, is why I am not a civic nationalist. Williams is not who I am and never will be.

    Regardless, this recent spat of posts about Williams, Steve’s always amusing commentary and the comments of so many on this board just reminds me that so much of this blog and the comments boil down to “Why aren’t non-whites acting white?”

    The perpetual confusion around here that non-whites are, you know, different from whites and that these differences will manifest in various different behaviors baffles me.

    Asians don’t treat the SAT/ACT as sacred the way whites do! Well, I never.

    Blacks are violent and entitled compared to whites! How can this be?

    Hispanic neighborhoods are dirty relative to white neighborhoods, and they don’t seem to care much about getting ahead in the same way that whites do! Something must be done.

    Yes. Different groups are different. Of all places, iSteve should be get this and move on. (I realize that everyone around actually does, in fact, get that different groups are different. I’m saying that our comments – and, yes, I’m as guilty as anyone – seen in isolation don’t show that we do.)

    The real issue is what to do about these differences both on a national level and, much more importantly since my guess is we’re kind of sunk on a national level, on a personal level. I wish that I had a good answer to those questions. I have some ideas, whether they are good or not is questionable. But shouldn’t we at least be wrestling with the real issues.

    Snickering behind the backs of the bullies after they punch you and steal your lunch money isn’t that satisfying or useful.

    That is the classiest, most kawaii, Japanese, non-middle finger middle finger she could have given that stadium full of disgusting humanoids trying to belittle her fairly won victory.

    That said…this is why the IKAGO argument is so dangerous to the West.

    Doc, Serena didn’t follow the rules, that’s why she got penalized.

    In my experience Blacks perceive neutral application of Rules as a form of personal persecution, and racial persecution if the enforcer of the Rules is coded as “white.” At least among the lower IQ underclass it seems like they think that enforcing basic Rules against their behavior means that you don’t like or respect them. And of course “respect” has a different meaning – it’s not earned esteem, but rather fear at offending them. This is why blacks seem to be sincerely offended even when they’re caught red-handed – maybe they did the forbidden thing, but the real outrage is that you’d suspect them of doing the forbidden thing! Sure, Shauquanda was caught shoplifting, but it was a small item of little value and stores are “rich” and you only suspected Shauquanda of shoplifting because she’s black. Obviously this is a disaster in the making with higher stakes situations – black suspect has an active warrant, cop wants to question him about a recent crime and we all know the rest.

    I think some proportion of above the black average of IQ blacks understand this game, but also understand that it works often enough against nice white people to allow them to do whatever they want. They’re less sincere in their outrage, but have learned that displays of black anger and accusations of racism put whites on their back foot. You can see how they’ve developed concepts like “systemic racism” and “microaggressions” in order to make plausible accusations of racism out of whole cloth.

  33. Jack D says:

    The irony in all of this is that if Osaka had been playing a white woman and the white woman behaved in exactly the same way as Serena, blacks and white “liberals” would be all over this white woman for racistly and selfishly spoiling the inevitable victory of a strong black woman over the white race and making her cry. But, Serena was the “blacker” of the two, not just in skin tone but in behavior (as others pointed out, Osaka, even though 1/2 Haitian and raised in the US, acts Japanese in some ways) and therefore was the automatic winner. The pain that she inflicted on Osaka was instantly forgiven, especially since she grudgingly mumbled a few words at the end urging the crowd to shut up. This was interpreted in the press as a magnanimous and gracious apology to Osaka when it was nothing of the kind.

    How you actually behave in these encounters is pretty much irrelevant – once you know the point count you can point to the victor before the match (the match being not the tennis game but victory in the sphere of public opinion, or at least the manufactured version that is reflected in the media) even begins. The fix is in.

The best thing about the Marvel movies is the laughs. If that’s the metric, Thor Ragnarok was ∞ times better than BP because TR consistently doled out the laughs.

  39. Steve, do you think this sudden phenomenon of pushing the angry black woman (righteous!) to the fore might be a trial balloon for Kamala Harris?

    You know, seeding the culture with the idea that black women expressing anger is not the wholly obnoxious, avoided-at-all-costs experience that we all have had but rather a needed encounter with a unique truth-telling entity?

    I doubt that Serena Williams’s outburst was planned for political purposes, however events can be seized and marketed.

    Harris has trouble coming across as anything other than seething and condescending in my limited sample of her public behavior.

    Also note – if the Democrats nominate Harris in 2020, it will be the second consecutive time they will have nominated a woman lawyer who failed the Bar Examination and who made her way on the political strength of their male paramours.

    The Democrats seem to forget that actual political talent matters. Whatever you think of Obama, he definitely had it, as did Bill and W. Hilary does not come across as the type of person you’d want to have a beer with or get stuck in an elevator with, and Harris has the same problem. The Democrats probably believe that a female with the right complexion will be enough to get over the hump in battleground states and they might be right, but unless the economy goes off the rails in the next two years it’s awfully tough to beat an incumbent president. I have a hard time seeing Harris’ worst traits not coming out if she has to spend a campaign season under attack by Trump.

    Differences in group behavior are painfully obvious but supposedly we live in a system where there is one set of rules for everyone. How do you square the circle? Ethnically cleanse the society so you are back to one ethnic group? Enshrine the differences into law (or at least the de facto application of the law) so that there are different standards of behavior required for different ethnic groups? How far do you take this – should we accept that cheat on tests is just Asians being Asian and that Medicare fraud is just what guys with gold chains do? Or (and this is old-fashioned, I know) rigorously apply the law in an impartial fashion and hope that over time the offenders can be persuaded/forced to adhere to civilized norms or locked up if they don’t.

    Also keep in mind that humans are malleable and respond to incentives. Maybe black women are higher T than white women but you have a different range of outcomes when society punishes violent displays of anger vs. when society rewards them as being Righteous Outrage.

    OT, from VOA News on Sweden’s elections last weekend: Nevertheless, many Swedes were shocked at the rise in far-right support. “It’s strange, it’s not Swedish, it’s something like non-democratic, I think. It’s really alarming and it’s quite a scary situation going forward here in Sweden,” said Stockholm resident Johan Einarsson.

    18% of the people voting for a conservative party is “non-democratic.” Where are these people learning their vocabulary?

    I’m kinda disappointed in the results. Until this election the Swedish Democrats had doubled their support in every election since their founding. They won 12.9% in 2014, and I was hoping and expecting them to get at least 26% or so. How the hell do people watch as their government lets in the American equivalent of 5 million third worlders in a single year and not grow completely disgusted with the ruling parties?

    Yeah, the problem is that Serena Williams looks stereotypically black — almost like a parody of that stereotype. When she gets angry, she looks like the stereotype of an Angry Black Woman — almost a parody of that stereotype.

    Answer: he doesn’t.

    And that’s the real message here.

    (She is of course held out as some kind of fashion icon today. But I do wonder if there exist normal heterosexual men of any race who don’t find her hideous. Many women of course want us all to see her inner beauty — so much like their own! — so act as if they think she’s fantastic looking.)

    I’ve posted this before, but black political power hit its apogee during the Obama administration – very soon they will only be the 3rd most numerous group in the Democratic tent (after whites and then latinos), and because of their unbelievable level of allegiance to the party and limited economic power they can be taken for granted in a way the other groups can’t.

    There are definitely people in the black political class that realize that their relevance is on the wane and are trying to position the group as some kind of bloc everyone is morally obligated to be deferential to even as they are eclipsed numerically and economically by latinos and probably eventually Asians. This works with woke white elites but won’t get a lot of traction with the latinos and Asians who will become more important to the party over time. In even another decades, the political landscape is going to look a lot different than today.

Blacks are already almost 100% living on the Democrat plantation already and turnout in black precincts can only be boosted so much before the voter fraud becomes too obvious ( in parts of Phila it goes up to maybe 105% but beyond that it gets problematic).

    So the question is, how will this play with whites and especially with the Becky demographic? There will some small percentage of self-hating Mollies who will respond positively to the Angry Black Women Candidate who will finally put those evil white men in their place, but most normal folks cannot be persuaded to support someone who openly hates them. Part of the secret of Obama’s success is that he didn’t (openly) play the part of the Angry Black Man and was not perceived by whites as threatening. He was your Cool Black Friend. I don’t see how then can get Kamala to play your Cool Black Woman Friend because it is so against her character.

  56. Angry Black women were an integral part of Hillary Clinton’s efforts to smash the Hell out of Vermont Jew by way of Brooklyn Bernie Sanders.

    I took it upon myself to label such efforts by Hillary Clinton to utilize angry Black lady voters to bash out Bernie’s brains the “AUNT JEMIMA STRATEGY.” If you have visions of angry Black lady voters bashing Bernie Sanders over the head with handbags, perhaps after a church service, that wouldn’t make you a bad person. I’m sure baby boomer Machiavellian Hillary Clinton had such pleasant thoughts about her horde of Black lady voters doing battle against the White, pasty-faced Bernie Bros.

    Hillary Clinton knew that after Brooklyn Jew, Bernie Sanders, beat her in the New Hampshire Democrat Party presidential primary, that she would have her Black lady voter army there to launch an electoral counterattack against the Jew Vermonter, Bernie Sanders.

    Hillary Clinton moved to the mostly White town of Chappaqua, New York, in order to avoid having to live around non-Whites and Blacks. Hillary Clinton especially didn’t want to live anywhere near Blacks. But Hillary Clinton sure wanted the votes of Black people, especially Black lady voters, to use as an electoral weapon to stop Bernie Sanders.

    Even though there’s nothing there about desirable partners that our grandparents couldn’t have told us, its still nice to see it confirmed yet again.

    The analysis shows that female desirability starts high at 18, then drops sharply with age. Male desirability starts low, rises until about 50, then tails off gently. A postgraduate education makes men more desirable, while reducing desirability for women. These generalities are predictable and somewhat depressing.

    It’s depressing when the world doesn’t work the way my lecturers told me! I bet the anonymous writer is female and has a postgrad degree.

    There are other problems, too. The one that worries Tantan’s boss, Mr Wang, is that 5% of his customers will never get a match, no matter how much they swipe.

    Men on Tantan, he says, tend to like about 60% of all the female profiles they see, but women like just 6% of the male ones. The least attractive women receive similar levels of attention to the most attractive men, says Mr Wang; all can find someone reasonably attractive. Men at the bottom of the ladder end up completely matchless. This fits with the work by Ms Bruch and Mr Newman. In general, both men and women concentrate on people that the common opinion of the site rates as 25% more attractive than they are. Even for women not seen as desirable, that can work. For the least desirable men, nothing works.

    Notice that’s not depressing. The writer is female.

    We’re back with the OK Cupid finding that 80% of men on dating sites are rated ‘below average’ by women, whereas the figure for females rated by men is a more realistic 50%. And we’re also back with “greater variability in males”, which cost Lawrence Summers a job and just got a published piece in an academic journal Stalinised.

    Another reason for immigration skepticism-skepticism. The immigration wave of the past half-century — Latinos and Asians — is not in general that bad. The problem demographics (who I probably don’t have to name) are the one’s we were already saddled with, who are themselves not well liked by the newcomers. Insofar as Asians and Latinos are anti-white, it’s overwhelmingly because cultural marxist scum hold the institutional high ground, and are as such able to propagandize and hand out cash and prizes to whip the masses up against whitey. They are the problem, to a much greater extent than immigration per se.

    However of course, I’m aware of the value of setting a restrictionist precident, given the looming menace of sub-Saharan African fertility. I just think that sometimes the right gets tunnel vision on the immigration question.

    There seem to be a lot of ancient geriatrics in our ruling class, especially on the Democrat side (a mark of a society in decline – see the late Soviet Politburo, but I digress) so we can expect black politicians to be in high places in the Democrat party for decades after blacks have lost their political relevance among the voters.

    As you say, white people seem willing to defer to blacks as being the core of the Democrat Party (and in parts of the South, where most whites have fled to the Republican Party, they really are – a very high % of Democrat primary voters in places like SC are black) but Latinos and Asians are much less likely to be deferential.

I can see white progressives pushing this idea of eternally sacralizing to keep Latinos and Asians in control, but it won’t work. Asians and Latinos naturally despise blacks and won’t give up political power to appease a brutal minority with no history of civilization who use the threat of random street violence to get what they want.

    Asians are much less likely to be deferential.

    My impression of China and Sino-influenced societies like Japan, Korea and Vietnam is that before the modern era, for pretty much their entire existence as civilizations, the best and brightest there were focused entirely on statecraft, defined as fighting your way to the throne and keeping your family in power for centuries. Merchants were conniving scum, engineers were mere tradesmen, proto-scientists were superstitious frauds and so on. Only men involved in the study of gaining political power and how to hold on to it were really esteemed. Given this monomaniacal emphasis, it would be interesting to see if individuals like Sarah Jeong are just schemers working towards a better vantage point or true believers in their position as grovelers alongside white SJW’s before a black overclass.

    Differences in group behavior are painfully obvious but supposedly we live in a system where there is one set of rules for everyone.

    Yes, but those rules were created by one group of people – Anglo-Saxon Whites – to fit their genetic disposition and the culture that sprung from that ancestry. To believe that those rules can – and should – be applied to groups with different genetic make-ups and cultures is absurd and, to a degree, cruel since some of these other groups simply will be unable to adhere to them.

    Or (and this is old-fashioned, I know) rigorously apply the law in an impartial fashion and hope that over time the offenders can be persuaded/forced to adhere to civilized norms or locked up if they don’t.

    Again, you are asking Bulldogs to act like Greyhounds. Sure, you can apply the rules designed for Greyhounds to Bulldogs in an impartial fashion but is that truly being fair? Do you punish Bulldogs for being “too slow” when you defined speed by the average Greyhound?

    Also keep in mind that humans are malleable and respond to incentives.

    Regardless, this recent spat of posts about Williams, Steve’s always amusing commentary and the comments of so many on this board just reminds me that so much of this blog and the comments boil down to “Why aren’t non-whites acting white?”

    The perpetual confusion around here that non-whites are, you know, different from whites and that these differences will manifest in various different behaviors baffles me.

    Good post. Most boomers are perpetually confused by the behavior of non-whites and there doesn’t seem to be much of anything that can be done to relieve that confusion because IKAGO. A one-in-a-million counter-example will always carry more weight with a boomer than the 999,999 examples anyone can provide. Equality is a religious belief with boomers rather than an intellectual belief; I think they believe that they’ll go to some eternal reward if they believe in equality. They will deny this but it fits better than anything else.

    Another theory holds that the boomers lack of experience with non-whites makes the behavior of non-whites literally unbelievable to boomers. They can’t comprehend why non-whites behave the way they do so they just don’t believe it. They think that everything they see in the media of non-whites behaving badly is an anomaly or that bad whites are provoking non-whites to behave badly just to make the non-whites look bad. This sounds crazy to younger people, but to boomers who have little first-hand experience outside the one-in-a-million “normal” acting non-white it make perfect sense.

    I use the term boomers here because that is the largest group at present that believes in equality. I know that not literally every boomer believes in equality or that there aren’t any non-boomers who believe in it.

    If anyone else has a better explanation for boomers behavior, please share.

    The coach admitted that he was signalling and used the “everyone does it” defense. What complicated the situation was that Serena (said that she) didn’t see the signals so it wasn’t cheating as far as she is concerned. It’s hard to say whether this is true or not (and irrelevant under the rules – the player is responsible for xer coach’s actions). Blacks will often deny what they have done even when caught red handed or on video. In the film of the coach gesturing he holds his hands maybe 6″ apart and then slides them forward to indicate that she should move closer to the net. And then he nods as if to say “message received”.

    It is true that players are often given an informal warning before being assessed a penalty for coaching but the ump is not required to do that and had every right to assess the penalty immediately when he saw the coach signaling.

If you can’t understand their strong foreign accent, you’d better keep quiet about that too, or you’ll never see the inside of a classroom again. You do not interrupt–ever–and you certainly don’t ask questions, which are a form of microaggression.

    If you dare to complain to an administrator, she’ll treat you as a criminal trying to evade punishment. If you try to transfer to another college, they will be informed of the charges against you and that you are not co-operating with the prescribed process.

    Whether or not Serena saw that particular bit of illegal coaching is basically irrelevant — nor should her protestations that she didn’t see it count for anything, in any case.

    Her feigned outrage was over the supposed slur to her character in the accusation of cheating. But she knew that she cheated like this all the time – as her coach’s admission makes completely inescapable. Really, what’s her idea here? The coach has been doing this for years, presumably, and she’s never seen any of his signals?

    And then she presumes to demand an apology from the umpire, knowing she has cheated like this for years?

    This is a 2010 tale of Solzhenitsyn’s seeming disappearance from English-langiage publishing. Includes interviews with his son.

    https://publishingperspectives.com/2010/01/the-%E2%80%9Clost%E2%80%9D-books-of-aleksandr-solzhenitsyn/

    “In truth, The Red Wheel has always had a tortured history, even by the standards of Solzhenitsyn’s books which were variously concealed, banned, burned, microfilmed and smuggled out to the West. This difficult, dense epic was alienating readers even as the first volume August 1914 was circulating in samizdat in the 60s. Solzhenitsyn himself condemned the first English translation, which was carried out by Michael Glenny and a team of graduate students in the early 70s, and received lukewarm reviews in the press. The book reappeared nearly twenty years later in 1989, entirely redone by his favorite translator (H.T. Willetts, who also translated the restored In the First Circle). The second volume, November 1916 followed in 1998. And since then: nothing, in English at least.

    I.S.: It remains stuck in limbo.

    D.K.: Are there any plans to translate the remaining volumes?

    I.S.: (visibly frustrated) No.

    The Red Wheel is available in other European languages, such as German, French and Swedish, while Russian speakers can download the while thing for free from the official Solzhenitsyn website which is run by his widow, Natalia. Edward Ericson, a noted Solzhenitsyn scholar who edited the one volume edition of The Gulag Archipelago and co-edited The Solzhenitsyn Reader is pessimistic that The Red Wheel will ever appear in English. “That would take a rich benefactor,” he says. “It’s never going to make a profit. I don’t even think the sales would pay the cost of the translation. And so this great work is lost to us””

    Another reason for immigration skepticism-skepticism. The immigration wave of the past half-century — Latinos and Asians — is not in general that bad. The problem demographics (who I probably don’t have to name) are the one’s we were already saddled with, who are themselves not well liked by the newcomers. Insofar as Asians and Latinos are anti-white, it’s overwhelmingly because cultural marxist scum hold the institutional high ground, and are as such able to propagandize and hand out cash and prizes to whip the masses up against whitey. They are the problem, to a much greater extent than immigration per se.

    I don’t know what you even mean by this. If immigrants are making the country worse off, even if they make it less worse off than the worst of our resident citizens, this is not an argument in favor of admitting more immigrants.

    Even assuming for the case of argument that recent immigrants have had their minds scrambled by “cultural marxist scum” yielding the current awful result, how to you propose to rid ourselves of “cultural marxist scum” while your immigrants are largely responsible for the increase in institutional power of the “cultural marxist scum?” Even if the marxists are a necessary precondition to the awfulness of the current predicament with regard to immigration, it’s more feasible to limit immigration than to limit radical ideologies amongst Americans.

It was here that she made lasting friendships and found the inspiring classes and mentors that sparked her ambition to become a scholar and teacher herself. And it was also here that, during her freshman year, she was sexually assaulted by a fellow student—a trauma compounded by a second rape while she was on a study-abroad program in Kenya during her junior year.
    ……
    It was in October of her freshman year that a senior “frat boy” she was dating sexually assaulted her. “He was continually pressuring me to have intercourse, but I wanted to wait. One night at his fraternity house, I said ‘No,’ but he didn’t listen. Afterwards, I didn’t tell anyone and tried to convince myself that it was consensual,” she says. “It was out of my framework that someone you knew could rape you.”
    ……
    During her junior year abroad in Kenya, Tillet was violently raped by someone she considered an acquaintance shortly before she was scheduled to leave the country. “He was supposed to take me home but instead he took me to a room somewhere. I was forced to spend the night with him because I had no money, no transportation, and no phone and no idea of my location,” she relates. “I thought he was going to beat me. He pinned me down and violently raped me. Once again, I was silent.”

    Uh, black people. As others have mentioned, when caught red-handed, it is common for blacks to become extremely angry at the person who has caught them, as if it is somehow the fault of the person pointing out the offense and not themselves, the offender. Thus you have the Gentle Giant trying to kill Officer Wilson, Saint Trayvon trying to kill George Zimmerman, etc. This is not just a desire to escape – St. Trayvon was surely more fleet of foot than Zimmerman – but anger at the effrontery of the white person.

    If you think about this, it makes a certain amount of sense in a topsy-turvy way. If the ref had not called the offense, if the store detective did not catch you shoplifting, if the snitch did not snitch, then you would be innocent of the crime. And there is a further racial twist – yes you have been shoplifting, cheating, whatever, but the only reason you were caught was because you were black – white people are not followed by store cameras and can shoplift with impunity due to their white privilege. So even though you are guilty, you are innocent because your arrest is the fruit of the poisoned tree of racism, which is a much bigger crime than minor crime of shoplifting razor blades from some big corporation.

    Trayvon Martin wasn’t collared by Zimmerman. Zimmerman was loitering about waiting for the police to arrive and had no clue where Martin was. Martin could simply have walked in the back door of Brandi Green’s townhouse and forgotten about Zimmerman. Instead, he walked 75 yards from a point proximate to Brandi Green’s home to stage a confrontation with Zimmerman. As for Brown and his sidekick, it’s conceivable that they had a clue that a bulletin had gone out over the wire after Brown had stolen from the convenience store, but the immediate issue was that Martin and whatshisface were walking down the middle of the road as if they owned it. Officer Wilson pulls up and tells them they’re blocking traffic and must use the sidewalk. The confrontations were derived from the honor culture of the lesser sort of black youth and the ensuing circus was fueled by the sustaining honor culture of large swaths of the adult black population (with sorosphere rent-a-crowd thrown in, as well as cynical hustling by Crump / Julison). Williams behavior (and this rude professor’s commentary) are derived from that same source. It’s a reasonable wager that this honor culture would collapse if the media, the academy, and the legal system quit paying obstreperous loudmouths any mind, but the self-concept of those in the media, the academy, and the legal system won’t allow them to tell Ben Crump and Tyrone Washington to buzz off.

    “Of course, if you’re on a dating site, you’re already self-selected as someone having trouble finding a date.”

    Not these days, not with Tinder, PoF etc. Women wouldn’t use the sites if all the men were people who couldn’t get a date ‘in real life’ (does ‘meatspace’ still exist?). But even pre-Internet I knew perfectly decent London guys who used the ads in Time Out for dates i.e. lays.

    “I would guess that there are far more guys at the bottom of the social totem pole that haven’t dated than there are girls. I don’t know of any female equivalent of the “chubby chaser”.”

    None of us do. No women specialise in hitting on very unattractive males because they’re an easy lay. Attractive, or at least acceptable men are also an easy lay, short of the lady being morbidly obese.

    I know men in their 40s, some of whom are very low-IQ, living at home on welfare, others who are high-IQ nerds with own house and car, who have never kissed a girl let alone mated with one.

    For the mentally-challenged welfare guys, only force or prostitution will get them what they want – they’re looking at lifelong celibacy.

    Black Rage: Race, Affect, and the Politics of Feeling
    ENGL 570.401
    crosslisted as: AFRC 570, GSWS 570
    instructor(s): Salamishah Tillet
    Tuesday 9-12:00
    “To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious” wrote James Baldwin “is to be in a state of rage almost all the time.” While more attention has been paid to how other feelings like forgiveness or love have been the moral underpinnings to African American social movements, this class makes an effort to look at the history of and value this more difficult but equally important African American cultural expression of black rage, one that is often maligned as a destructive and subject to hyper-surveillance and suppression. We will take an interdisciplinary approach to understanding this phenomenon by looking at the discourse surrounding events, like Nat Turner’s slave rebellions, Stonewall, the Attica Uprising, and Black Lives Matter, historicize the construction of “black rage” as a medical disorder and legal defense, study its offshoots, like “protest psychosis” and the “Angry Black Woman,” and examine how artists as vast Richard Wright, Nina Simone, Alice Walker, Glen Ligon, Public Enemy, Kara Walker, and Solange have explored it as a site of black resistance. Focusing on one of the most misunderstood African American political emotions — black rage — this course will examine how artists and activist have steadily moved it from the margins of black life into to the mainstream in American culture.

    Again, I must stress that the underlying attitude, the underlying hatred of non-Elite whites by Elite whites, is as old as the US itself – and therefore older, because it springs not from a government but from culture that made subsequent government. Jews did NOT create it. It was in place when 100% of the mainstream/elite media members and academics were WASPs. It s in origin a WASP Elite hatred for all whites they see as non them. Blacks are tools and weapons they use to force the whites they despise to accept being held down.

    Yes and no. It existed in Europe. Which was why Jews were able to so successfully exploit it for the purpose of wealth and power redistribution with their Communism doctrine, aka class warfare.

    But in America such notions must have been pretty few and far between. This is the reason for the Jews re-branding their class warfare doctrine to instead focus on the exploitation of cultural conflicts with Cultural Marxism. They have, since then, gone on to champion the demographic replacement of whites with as much of these weaponized 3rd world cultures as possible for the same (fast approaching) ultimate goal of (Neo)Bolshevik genocidal conquest that the 1.0 iteration of their ideological venom successfully culminated in back in eastern Europe.

    In both cases, all Communism is, is a weapon that targets a specific ‘underdog’ demographic and seeks to brainwash them with propaganda about their supposed exploitation and the promise of a better, utopian future for the unspoken purpose of converting them into unwitting blunt instruments (useful idiots) to be swung at a nation’s existing power structure for the purpose of subversion, usurpation and profit for a small group of Jewish elites.

    All that said, I have to disagree with you about elite white hatred of of non-elite whites. If it were as prevalent as you suggest it was in America, the Jews would never have had to remodel their weapon of choice specifically for American audiences.

    While I agree about the relentless hyping and growing negrofatigue and the general thrust of your comment, “ever declining” seems like a poor adjective for blacks who are now at their largest share of the population ~14%, since the 1860 census.

    Blacks are finally down to replacement fertility, but still at a level quite a bit above whites.

    Immigration and higher Hispanic fertility would–in time–drive the black % down … but only if Steve’s “World’s most important graph” doesn’t come into play. But TPTB are doing everything they can to deligitimize border enforcement, so based on current trends, that’s unlikely to happen.

    And this behavior is not confined within the United States. When the 3 black UCLA basketball players were blatantly caught shoplifting high-end merchandise in China last year, they, their families & the sycophantic media cried “racist” and let loose the dogs of perpetual self-righteous indignation by blaming the Chinese. But it didn’t work though. Trump was on a Presidential visit to China at the time and got them released quickly after their very public apologies. And almost out of a Hollywood comedy script and in stereotypical (ungrateful) fashion, one of the fathers (LeVar Ball) said Trump had nothing to do with their release which launched a memorable hilarious Twitter spat. President Trump crushed Mr. Ball.

    If you think about this, it makes a certain amount of sense in a topsy-turvy way.

    Art, covers this but the media lied so much that it’s important to repeat it:

    Zimmerman did absolutely nothing to block or detain Trayvon Martin.

    When Zimmerman called the cops he didn’t actually know the address of his apartment complex and had to walk out to the street to get the cross street info. During this time Trayvon! was free to–and as far as we can tell, did–walk to his dad’s girlfriend’s apartment where he was staying during his school suspension. But apparently talking on the phone to the fat girl got him riled up and he

    *turned around*

    and went back to teach the “creepy ass cracker” a lesson. Trayvon! confronted Zimmerman and–as best we can determine (and squaring with all the other evidence)–sucker punched him knocking him to the ground and then (definitely) got on top of him and was “reigning down blows MMA style” and slamming his head into the concrete (according to neighbor/witness) when Zimmerman (wisely armed) shot him. (Probably saving either his life outright or his “useable life” by preventing severe brain injury.)

    All this info, i just recounted was either available from local (Orlando TV news) media or easy to reconstruct from it and 911 call. But the US prestige media chose to publish pictures of the 17 year old HS football player Trayvon! as a 12 year old instead.

    Cultural factors may explain some of the higher black crime rate. Blacks have a tendency to be rather envious, and thus tolerant of crime, in an unequal society with neighboring whites. South African blacks are considerably more violent than their neighboring countries, and I have to think this is because of the ANC strategy to make the townships ungovernable during the 1980s.

    BLM rioting has abrubtly ceased since the election of Trump, the elites are well aware of how it backfired.

    What could change is if a leftist administraton at the state level pushes to “decriminalize” property crimes and low-level assault, combined with restrictions on concealed carry. It has been a tremendous effort at huge costs to lower crime from its late-80s early 90s peak. Think of the current surge in UK crime, hopefully helped along by UK rightists ceasing cooperation with the police (worked for the ANC).

    I, for one, have decided if I get married, it can only be in the handful of states that support marriage equality. Currently, I live in New Jersey, where Governor Chris Christie recently vetoed the state legislature’s passage of the gay marriage bill. New Jersey does have civil unions, but it is clearly defined as a legal arrangement between same-sex partners only. Even if a heterosexual couple wanted to be in legal solidarity with gay and lesbian couples here, our only options are privilege or renunciation.

    Naomi Osaka is mostly culturally American, so the statements that I have been reading that attribute her behavior to being Japanese are off base. Her African Americaness may be a bit weak, less culturally black than Williams.

    She spoke quite a bit in Japanese on Japanese television. She is not just memorizing the odd phrase. She can understand many questions asked in Japanese, and she can respond to many of them in simple Japanese sentences that she composes on the fly. Her vocabulary is weak and she asks the interviewer, who will generally be bilingual, for help. For instance, she wanted to say that she was “patient,” but didn’t know the Japanese for that, so she asked in English, “How do you say patient?,” and the interviewer answered “gaman-zuoi” (or “gaman-tsuyoi,” ガマン強い).

    One wishes that she would move to Japan if she is going to represent Japan, and she should even take citizenship. Japan has the excellent policy of prohibiting dual citizenship. If she’s 20, she has until her next birthday to decide on her citizenship, assuming that she is otherwise eligible for Japanese citizenship. However, if she lived in Japan her coaching would suffer, and in many sports, like figure skating and table tennis, and even kayaking and speed skating, Japanese athletes traditionally go abroad for coaching. In some cases this has rusulted in Japanese competing for the country they get their coaching in, as with pairs skater Yuko Kavaguti.

    I am often bemused by White people’s adulation of Asians as a foil for Blacks.

    The truth is that Asians resemble Blacks in many ways much more than either Asians or Blacks resemble Whites.

    Exhibit A is Miss America 2019, whose photo has been posted in this thread.

    She looks like a darker-skinned doppelgänger of a Japanese colleague of mine. At the very least, it is undeniable that she looks more Japanese than you look, being the White person that you are. Despite this fact, there is no end to the stream of White people who cannot be persuaded to shut up about how hot they think Asian chicks are and exhort their fellow whites to go and grab some of that slanted pu$$y, and then turn around and comment in very frank terms about how ugly they think Black chicks are. This trend is incredibly creepy (in more than one way).

    Exhibit B:

    “Uh, black people. As others have mentioned, when caught red-handed, it is common for blacks to become extremely angry at the person who has caught them, as if it is somehow the fault of the person pointing out the offense and not themselves, the offender. …

    If you think about this, it makes a certain amount of sense in a topsy-turvy way. If the ref had not called the offense, if the store detective did not catch you shoplifting, if the snitch did not snitch, then you would be innocent of the crime.”

    Substitute “Asian” for “black” and this passage still appears equally on the mark. Apparently, White people fail to notice the fundamental similarity of the mentality of Asians and Blacks because Asians apply their conniving and immoral selfishness to pursuits that seem somehow more impersonal or even “(anti-)civilized,” such as cheating on exams or improving their company’s profit margins at any cost; regulations for environmental protection, worker safety, and public health be damned.

    “And when the Chinese eventually take over the USA they will definitely not tolerate any of this black nonsense. No fools are the Chinese.”

    What makes you think they would tolerate White nonsense (“all human persons are created equally in God’s sight,” “fairness,” “honesty,” etc.) any more than they would tolerate Black nonsense? Chinese people (and other East Asians) will do and say whatever they calculate to be in the best interest of themselves and their families.

    However, you are correct in one regard. Asian people think very much like Black people. If “Whitey’s system” (i.e. civilization and rule of law) ever deteriorates to a point that it no longer possesses an aura of authority sufficient to deter the base urges of Blacks and Asians (and also certain trashy Whites, or perhaps I should say trashy Caucasoids, though I find these to be a small proportion of the total population), the machetes (or would katanas be more appropriate?) will be drawn with heartless vigor.

The Founding Fathers were self-consciously leaving behind other than a genetic legacy. The motto “Novus Ordo Seclorum” reflects their legacy, setting up the mechanisms of government they invented to secure liberty against tyranny. Recall Article I, Section 8, Clause 4: “The Congress shall have Power To…establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization….” By definition, naturalization extends citizenship, and all the rights and duties related to it, to an outsider, that is, someone not the posterity of a signer of the document. The Founding Fathers clearly desired “to invite foreigners of merit and republican principles among us.” Indeed, the intention was whites and Europeans, but who imagined at that time non-whites and women would be able to embrace these principles? But there is no racial or gender criteria to adhering to republican ideals in the Constitution. Of course, that does not mean foreigners have the right to enter our shores, as Congress sets the standards for immigration. But the proposition remains that there are hoops for newcomers to jump through.

    Posterity to the founding fathers also meant the creation of an independent nation, with a vigorous and adaptable form of government, with a body of liberties that were malleable to the times. Thomas Jefferson bore witness to the new government as a unique combination of the freest elements of English law and political custom. While he was concerned that unrestricted immigration of peoples from lands unacquainted with the principle of representative government MIGHT undo the careful work of our Founding Fathers, he said prophetically, “from such we are to expect the greatest number of immigrants”. Indeed, American economic growth required a massive influx of foreign labor.

    “Hispanic neighborhoods are dirty relative to white neighborhoods”

    You meant to say poor Hispanic neighborhoods are dirty similar to poor white neighborhoods.

    They’ll be banning Meatloaf’s classic “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” next, because Coercion. (Even though the female in that song infamously controls the score in that baseball game.)

    Funny, I knew that song’s writer, Jimmy Steinman, quite well throughout my school years. He was diminutive, wealthy, and pampered, and aside from the prom, I’m pretty sure he never once had a date with a girl. (In fact, you could say the same for all of us nerds.) The notion of him trying to get laid by a car’s dashboard light has always seemed indescribably bizarre.

    However, you are correct in one regard. Asian people think very much like Black people.

    Nice try, but I never made that absurd assertion.

    Nor did I write that I have an adulation for Asians, but I certainly have a high respect for them after living and working throughout Asia (& Africa) for years.

  230. @Jack D

    No, but Asian persistence/willingness to work hard combined with black speed/strength is not bad raw material to which to apply the requisite 10,000 hours . Ask Tiger Woods.

    In the case of Tiger, the only speed that is relevant is that of his Mercedes.

    yes you need to polish the raw material for 10,000 hours

    Why? Wasn’t Manute Bol the greatest basketballer ever? Anyway, what’s “raw material”? I don’t see anything at all above average for Tiger Woods. He’s not T’Shawnda, but he’s not the Einstein of golf either.

    It should be blacklisted for reasons of taste alone.

    The same man responsible for the phrase “rebel without a clue” wrote that song. I wonder if he had Mr Loaf in mind not as singer (it went to Bonnie Tyler), but as subject.

    With modern heavy topspin the strings wear out and lose tension very fast. You want to change racquets before your strings break.

    Balls are replaced every 7 games and players mostly change racquets at the same time or the game before, so that they always have new balls and strings at the same time.

    The racquets are restrung while they are playing, so they cycle through a set of racquets during a match.

    Ivanisevic once had to forfeit a match because he ran out of racquets.

    Ridiculous comparison

    Which is what it was meant to be. Didn’t you pick up on that?

    …French grammar rules.

    That’s not grammar, that’s euphony. Or euphonics, if you prefer.

    I love that song!

    Ever seen the video with Karla deVito? (It’s Ellen Foley on the record.)

  235. @Simon

    He had imagination. The guys who are actually popular in high school don’t need or use imagination, which is why most never amount to much. (Presumably, you’ve read Ralph Keyes.)

    You can say that now that Woods is pretty far down the downslope, but at his peak he was WELL above average.

    In these men’s minds the sex is 100% consensual which is not quite true, even though legally it is.

    It is 100% consensual. If it is not, then women should not be allowed to date and need chaperones.

  238. @Jack D

    You can say that now that Woods is pretty far down the downslope, but at his peak he was WELL above average.

    Yeah, in performance. The question is whether he was much above average in any innate quality.

    Unless, as Dogbert was told by his CEO, the key to success is circular reasoning, because circular reasoning is the key.

    Steve, your prescience is noted. The Hive has already forgotten Serena and are embracing, championing Ms Osaka for her propaganda value. They are already salivating at how she can be used to open up Japan to mass 3rd world immigration.

    Keeper quote-

    “While Naomi Osaka’s victory should be celebrated on its own,” Hashimoto said. “Her case provides those Japanese with a narrow conception of Japanese-ness with an excellent opportunity to rethink what it means to be Japanese.”
