Seems odd to me that nobody is bringing up “Django Unchained” and/or “12 Years a Slave.”

Seems very likely to me that the connection between those movies carries an underlying psychological forward motion for what’s been taking place this summer. Most people don’t know much about the antebellum south in general, or how slavery worked there in particular.

If a lot of dumb people internalize Tarantino’s and McQueen’s strange narratives as gospel, why shouldn’t people react in bizarre ways to any white man that strikes them as an appointed paternal figure?

In general, as I’ve been pointing out in movie reviews and the like, there has been a moral panic building over white violence in the increasingly distant past against blacks, thus justifying black violence in the present against whites (or pretty much anybody who happens to object to blacks taking what is rightfully theirs, such as Swisher cigars).

Without understanding the pop culture context of Django and the like, the self-humiliating response of the prestige media is slightly less explicable.

  1. I think this post would benefit from some elaboration.

  2. If anybody on the left ever tries to make me feel guilty about the African slave trade, I will tell them I am Italian and there were no Italian slave owners in “Roots” and “12 Years A Slave”.

    You are trying to guilt trip the wrong WOP. I am not the liberal Bill De Blasio type of WOP, I am the Anthony Cumia type of WOP.

  4. A few days ago, trucks drained all the gas out of the underground gas tanks of the charbroiled QT in southeast Ferguson, although the one that was closed in northern Ferguson eventually did re-open. It means that they’re not going to rebuild the doomed QT, and I hope they leave it there as is, to rub the dogs’ noses in the mess they made on the carpet.

    Incidentally, QT is a national privately held corporation, all the stations are company owned and operated, one of these national chains whose internal quickie marts are so homogenized and standardized in terms of layout that when you get used to one, you could literally walk blindfolded into any other one and find what you want.

    Not only does QT have four thousand different flavors of slush, but the kids size costs 70-something cents. For that 70-something cents, you get the slush and an indestructible spill-proof cup with similarly indestructible lid and straw.
  5. Which why we need to introduce legislation to fund the National QuikTrip Museum. It’s hallowed ground for This Generation and you can pick up a surplus 9/11 tote bag or some “Never Forget” beach towels all in one quick, or slow, edifying trip

    One might need to keep in mind that a large part of the population gets it’s history from movies and television and this is particularly true of NAMs. Thus movies such as Django are seen by most blacks as being literally true and that it took place just last week since their ability to conceptualize a stretch of time in the hundreds of years is nonexistent. Movies like that are inflammatory for them so it’s little wonder that a series of such movies all in a row sets them to rioting and arson and, as long as they’re at it, to also turn it into a payday by looting.

    That would explain why many blacks seem to have trouble understanding the concept of "the future" as well. And I mean "the future" like understanding cause and effect and how today's choices lead to tomorrow's consequences.

    2 a week is equal to 100 per year.

    Out of the 100, some are completely justified -- the victim shooting it out with police during a robbery, &c.

    Black on black homicides are about 6,000 per year. A black is about 60 times more likely to get shot by another black than a white cop. So, twice a week vs 120 per week black on black homicides.

    My numbers may be a bit flawed, but when the numbers are framed as 'per week' or per 36 hours it is much harder to put it in perspective.

    If the 100 were unarmed minors -- we would see it on television constantly.

    Whatever. A more interesting question is, "What is the whole point of Whiskey, Nicholas Stix, SBPDL, Jewamongyou, Auster, Drudge, Fox News, and etc." How close are we to the moment when our evil elite finally gets tired of blacks and tosses them under the bus? Surely, their garbled syntax, ingratitude, and embarrassing tendency to be Sheila Jackson Lee annoy Manhattanites no end.

    So, this is how nice caring Libs do business?

    “There are basically two ways Silicon Valley upstarts like Uber and Airbnb can press their case against the regulators and traditional industries that would just as soon see them die. The first is by persuading the public that they’re really warm, fuzzy, and altruistic. This is the approach Airbnb has settled on, with its constant talk of helping people make friends and build communities. The second is by shunning the pretense of do-gooder-ism and simply mau-mau-ing the regulators and incumbents into submission.
    This is the approach favored by Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, who, after the company raised some $250 million in capital last year, warned the powers that be that the war chest would help him “fight off protectionist, anti-competitive efforts.” Not exactly a sweet-talker that guy. Or one to stand on principle: Under Kalanick, Uber once attempted to stamp out a rival car service by having employees order up the rival company’s cars and then cancel them, simply to take them out of circulation. It was not exactly a high-water mark of fair competition.”

  11. OT, but what about the feminist and progressive uproar with Spider Woman’s “sexist” drawing by Milo Manara? Cultural misunderstanding, or feminist rage? World War F?

  12. Tell me again after Obama purges most White cops and you have Mike Browns cousin as a cop shaking you down and humiliating you how Obama was preferable to McCain.

    I will tell you again. Obama is preferable over McCain. Obama would not even have been elected had it not been for Bush, McCain and your crew, who so thoroughly screwed the pooch after 9-11, that in comparison Obama looked reasonable. McCain, like Obama, would be pushing to amnesty the illegals. But unlike Obama, McCain would probably have gone to war in Syria, Iran and maybe even started a shooting war with Russia over some unimportant real estate like Georgia or Ukraine.

    So essentially McCain or Obama would be flooding us with illegals. But with Obama, the world is at least still alive with the possibility of a comeback still there. With McCain we might have embarked on a major war with the world’s second nuclear power.

    PS. Old time readers of this blog remember that you predicted Obama would declare martial law and remain in office after his 2nd term expires in 2016. Somehow I think that like everything else you write, that is horse crap too.

  15. I’m not very good at “understanding the pop culture context” of anything. What I understand here is that the police weren’t supposed to shoot the vandals and looters who were destroying the property of taxpayers who pay the salary of the police expressly so they can help protect the property of taxpayers from vandals and looters. All due to some ‘cultural context’ or other. Got it.

  20. “justifying black violence in the present against whites ”

    Or maybe constant aggressive police harrasement of blacks in Ferguson while enouraging ‘new American’s’ to sell them beer and blunts 24×7 was the problem.

    The films you site were only watched by wealthier whites, but you might be right, it might change wealthier white’s opinions. Actually given the press and the cost of the film Django did a very small box office. Django hasn’t spawned the sequals it should have if it were in touch with the culture.

  21. anonymous • Disclaimer says:

    ” Just this weekend alone in Chicago, 4 Black males were murdered…”
    That’s a quiet weekend. There’s been close to 50 shot on some of these three day weekends with up to ten dead. The ongoing routine has been to scream that the mayor and his police chief need to do more to ‘stop the violence’ as though they have a magic wand that can make it all go away. Somehow they’re blamed for what others over whom they have no control happen to be doing. But then that’s preferable to blaming the ones actually doing it, isn’t it? That might lead to unwanted ideas so let’s blame someone else.

  22. Whether we like it or not (because it always seems to be raised as one) here’s a question :

    Is there a significant-enough chance that an explicit reparations program would significantly stanch the production of racially inciting stuff like Django and even lessen the rationale for making yet more 12 Weeks a Slave-type movies, and in turn and likewise stanch the sense of racial animosity in the country?

    While I’m pretty viscerally against same I think, I also think one has to admit there is some logic to it. And then one has to consider also the question of when one should drop one’s principle’s concerning murky things like this and perhaps go along with something that might have some good, large pragmatic effect.

    Of course it can be argued that the endeavors of the Sixties’ War on Poverty as well as many other programs and laws since were significantly reparation-based, but on the other hand it can seem that once society did come to grips with its past as in the Sixties some time had to go by to let that history and anger and etc. be vented, so that now’s the time that a reparations effort might take the wind out of the sails those looking to constantly beat what amounts to that war tocsin.

    Yet another objection might also be raised concerning the number of movies and stuff still being made about the Holocaust, even though the German government has long undertaken a still-on-going reparations program.

    But isn’t the situation there a bit different? Not just that it was the Germans doing the reparations there but isn’t the other history involved in this different and interesting too? That is, doesn’t it seem that for a goodly period of time (decades) after WWII there really wasn’t too much U.S. mass-audience-directed “grievance”-type entertainment (for want of a better word) made concerning the Holocaust, but that it then started up rather co-incident with the historical concentration on the failure of the rest of the West and the U.S. to have come to the jews’ aid early enough? And then to have continued to have been made right up until now as that failure continues to be a hot subject in the historical field?

    I dunno. But maybe instead of the first question being whether it would work that should be the second question, with the first instead being … if somehow you were *guaranteed* that it would work, would you endorse it?

    Seems an interesting subject of the kind that one might have too readily rejected out of hand too long ago and never revisited as one theoretically should.

  23. Also left unsaid is whites don’t want a repeat of the 1960s and riots every summer.

    If you define white race liberals as people whose interactions with minorities is based on media consumption, I’d say you argument is correct.

    A good chunk of white race liberals were also pretty disgusted with their parents and their attitude of racial differences. Rather like Germans and Jews these days.

    ( I define a white race liberal as someone who has never been to Walmart in the past 5 years).

    The real question is black leadership. Have the gains of the past 50 years been good? Clearly this is the best time in American history to be black and educated. But outside that narrow sliver of professsionals and businessmen, you’ve got musicans and athletes. That is all.

    The rule of thumb I'd heard was that, compared with 1960, one-third of blacks were doing better, one-third about the same, one-third were doing worse (sometimes much worse). In absolute material terms, almost everyone is doing better, of course. It's the non-material side that's been a disaster for some.

    I think of a minor character in the first seasons of Mad Men, the black elevator operator. I wonder where someone like him would be today. Junior executive? Respectable cubicle drone? Or chronically unemployed with a criminal record from selling drugs?
  24. Why leap to farfetched Occam’s Butterknife conclusions like “the riots were incited by a couple of movies from a year ago” when the obvious answer is that they were incited by, if anything, the way the Brown shooting was portrayed by the newsmedia?

    ‘Them’ is blacks? It should be against the law to sell blacks alcohol? Why? They’re deemed to be incapable of making adult decisions? That cliche about the bigotry of low expectations sure comes into play here. In fact it’s really a part of the thinking of their supposed white advocates whose solutions revolve around the assumption that blacks have the mentality of irresponsible children and thus must be protected by dumbing everything down.

    Blacks get sucked into movies much more. We have all been in a movie theater where they start talking back to the on-screen dialog. Example: yelling out kill him…kill him… when a bad guy is about to be offed. Even standing up and yelling it.

    It’s a hard truth, but there’s a lot in it. More accurately, let’s say inner-city blacks on average have a mentality close that of irresponsible children. Not surprising, considering that most have IQs below 85 (lower than for the whole black population, of course), which psychologists in the olden days used to translate into a “mental age” of, what, 12? And they’re not well brought-up, for the most part – I don’t suppose anyone disputes that.

    Of course you can’t express this view in polite company, so public discussion of related issues take place in a kind of fantasy world.

    Whatever. A more interesting question is, “What is the whole point of Whiskey, Nicholas Stix, SBPDL, Jewamongyou, Auster, Drudge, Fox News, and etc.” How close are we to the moment when our evil elite finally gets tired of blacks and tosses them under the bus? Surely, their garbled syntax, ingratitude, and embarrassing tendency to be Sheila Jackson Lee annoy Manhattanites no end.

    A few days ago, trucks drained all the gas out of the underground gas tanks of the charbroiled QT in southeast Ferguson, although the one that was closed in northern Ferguson eventually did re-open. It means that they're not going to rebuild the doomed QT, and I hope they leave it there as is, to rub the dogs' noses in the mess they made on the carpet.

    Incidentally, QT is a national privately held corporation, all the stations are company owned and operated, one of these national chains whose internal quickie marts are so homogenized and standardized in terms of layout that when you get used to one, you could literally walk blindfolded into any other one and find what you want.

    Not only does QT have four thousand different flavors of slush, but the kids size costs 70-something cents. For that 70-something cents, you get the slush and an indestructible spill-proof cup with similarly indestructible lid and straw.

    One might need to keep in mind that a large part of the population gets it’s history from movies and television and this is particularly true of NAMs. Thus movies such as Django are seen by most blacks as being literally true and that it took place just last week since their ability to conceptualize a stretch of time in the hundreds of years is nonexistent.

    Good take! Django was actually a documentary!
    Blacks get sucked into movies much more. We have all been in a movie theater where they start talking back to the on-screen dialog. Example: yelling out kill him...kill him... when a bad guy is about to be offed. Even standing up and yelling it.

    Now you did it – I have to tell you about the time I went to see the Eddie Murphy pic “Boomerang” in Reno in ’92. This 40-something black man starts yelling at the screen, “yeah Eddie! You tell ’em Eddie!” I said, “sir, we didn’t come here to listen to you.” He gets up and says, “I’m gonna get my gun.” I follow him out to his car, thankfully no gun.

    White women need religious discipline to keep them in line because of women's weaknesses in general, though white men have other options.

    In other words, because men have agency that women lack, we can handle philosophy, skepticism and critical thinking. When women try to think for themselves, they often make a mess of their lives. In a functional patriarchy, fathers would indoctrinate their daughters in conservative, traditional religions, while taking the boys aside for The Talk about the real reasons for maintaining this belief system, namely, as a pragmatic way to keep the womenfolk under control. When these daughters come of age, they would lack premarital sexual experience and they would marry men of good character similar to their fathers.

Movies like that are inflammatory for them so it's little wonder that a series of such movies all in a row sets them to rioting and arson and, as long as they're at it, to also turn it into a payday by looting.

    That would explain why many blacks seem to have trouble understanding the concept of “the future” as well. And I mean “the future” like understanding cause and effect and how today’s choices lead to tomorrow’s consequences.

    Since when did most White women make it a priority that a man has to have a high IQ in order to impregnate them ? If a man with a low IQ was a deal breaker for most White women, White female/East Asian male interracial couples would vastly outnumber White female/Black male interracial couples.

  45. “why do some many white girls get on and bear the children of Black Men”

    Define “so many.” OKCupid dating site stats indicate that 95% of White women will only accept messages from White men. This high, despite years and years of aggressive propaganda by media that race-mixing is the hip and cool and fashionable thing to do.

    The ones you do see with blacks tend to be, um, how shall we say, less desirable? (Fat, stupid and addicted.) And before you call me a misogynist, you should know I’m a girl misogynist. (Well, a middle aged crone, but, hey.)

    Somewhere around here, Steve has a post showing how various demographics broke out for Obama. While Married White women (today, despite the generalized lack of religion) voted AGAINST Obama 67%, Single White Men (you know, the demographic that is the MOST impacted by anti-White politics like welfare, Affirmative Action and feminism) vote FOR Obama, 47%. That’s pathetic!

    To restate:
    While ONLY 33% of Married White Women are stupid enough to vote for Obama, 47% (!!!) of the demographic who, if they had any sense, would have kept Obama out, that is, Single White Men, voted FOR him!!
    Where’s all that vaunted critical thinking there, dude?

    As far as a majority of Single White Women voting for Obama, since a good chunk of those women are single mothers who benefit from welfare, etc., at least they have the critical thinking skills to know what’s good for themselves.

    WHAT is the excuse of these foolheaded Single White Men? NONE of them ought to have voted for Obama, you’d think, but very nearly half of them lack the sense to know that.

    (See? I can be just as tendentious as you can!) I actually like men, btw.

    No, it’s NOT that men are always better thinkers than women. It’s that young people lack experience, and therefore, sense. Marry ’em off, I say, and suddenly the light goes on in their silly little heads — men and women, both.

    Completely laughable. When an ethical system is viewed with this level of cynicism it is in its last stage of decadence. Or more accurately second to last stage, the final stage being complete repudiation and complete societal hedonism. This is precisely the ethical advice that was given by late Roman Republic fathers around the time of Cato. Likewise it was given to by fathers in Georgian England. Not coincidentally both those societies underwent complete moral collapse which was thankful corrected by the rise of Christianity and Victorian era modesty. Never mind that it requires wide-spread prostitution to keep this kind of two-tier systems of sexual ethics afloat.

    How does Islam fit into all this?

  50. Dr. Evil, one thing that the Islamic world does to a far greater degree is police female behavior and limit male access to unmarried females. It wouldn’t matter how unpersuasive a father was in instructing his daughter in sexual modesty because even if she completely rejected his strictures she wouldn’t have much opportunity to defy him.

    Among the 47 percent of single White males who voted for Hussein Obama I wonder how many of them are Union members, Homosexuals, college professors, Conquistadors, Irish Catholics who still have warm fuzzy feelings about The Democratic Party being the party of John F. Kennedy, Wiggers, White men who have a bachelors degree in the arts, White men who are stoners and smoke weed everyday or almost everyday, and last but not least Jews.

    I remember going to see a Sonny Chiba movie; I think it was “The Streetfighter” (An excellent martial arts flick) with my then girlfriend many years ago. One scene had Chiba beat the crap out of a black villain. One black guy in the audience shouts out, “That’s bullshit! Everybody knows white boys can’t fight!”

  53. “One black guy in the audience shouts out, “That’s bullshit! Everybody knows white boys can’t fight!”

    Than why do White fighters outnumber Blacks fighters in the UFC ?
