Over three days last week, at least 150 blacks attacked whites at random around TempleUniversity. Victims were surrounded, punched and kicked. Wallets and phones were stolen. Rocks were thrown at passing cars. When cops showed up, one was knocked from her bike and a police horse was even punched twice in the muzzle.

Most of the assaults took place on Friday. On Saturday, Joe Lauletta, a father of one victim, reported on FaceBook:

I spent last night in the ER at St. Mary’s HospitaI. I received a call from my daughter Christina after my sons football game. She was crying, I couldn’t understand her, my heart dropped, I became scared, I said what is the matter? Dad, I was jumped, I’m beat up pretty bad. Where r u? Temple, they stole my phone. We’re heading to the police station. I do not hear from her until she gets to her apartment. Rage is running through my mind the whole time. She said she is getting a ride home and wants to go to St. Mary’s. I find out that her and her 2 male friends where badly beaten by a group of 30-40 black teenagers on their way home from the Temple football game. This happened after they got off the subway at Broad and Cecil B Moore. These sick animals held her down and kicked and stomped on her repeatedly. Thank god, the people from the pizza place intervened. They arrested 2 people at the scene. I have not let Christina out of my sight, she is resting. Every part of her body is badly bruised, it makes me cry just thinking about it. No broken bones. If you have children at Temple, tell them to be careful. Please keep Christina Lauletta in your thoughts.

CBS Philadelphia describes another victim’s ordeal:

He says around 9:30 Friday night he was leaving work when he saw what looked to be at least 200 juveniles walking in large groups.He said he overheard police saying the kids were playing the knockout game.

He says a juvenile around 10 years old started shouting obscenities at him and grabbed his phone out of his hand. The student says the juvenile then came back and threw the phone at him, striking him in the face.

Around 15 minutes later, the student says he was walking with his girlfriend when they were approached by at least seven juveniles. The student says he went to hit the TemplePolice alert button when his girlfriend was struck by one of the juveniles.

As the student was chasing them away, he says he was struck in the face by a someone he estimates to be eight years old.

This is not new. In 2014, five black girls, aged 17, 15, 15, 15 and 14, committed three separate attacks on random white people at TempleUniversity. Struck across the face with a brick, a 19-year-old white student suffered a fractured jaw and nearly had her teeth knocked out. Her 15-year-old assailant, Zaria Estes, was given a 2 ½-6 year sentence.

Across America, gangs of blacks have beaten random people for decades, just for the sport of it. This cathartic recreation has been dubbed wilding, catch and wreck, knock out game or flash mob, and it can happen at parks, shopping malls, state fairs or even your living room.

In 2012, a mentally-handicapped woman was relaxing on her stoop in Chester, just outside Philadelphia, when she was attacked by six black teenaged girls. When the terrified woman tried to flee inside, they rushed into her living room to continue the savage beating. Had these girls not posted their exhilarating workout on FaceBook, they might never have been caught.

A white bartender at my neighborhood dive was attacked, just outside her front door, by a group of black kids around 12 years old. After throwing a rock at her head and knocking her down, they kicked her a few times as she curled up on the ground, then they scattered. “Just like that, it was over. All I could do was go inside and cry.”

Not surprisingly, the latest incident at TempleUniversity has received scant media attention. Though AP did cover it, it never pointed out that these were racial crimes. As usual, only “teens” are fingered, with their race not mentioned. Had mobs of whites attacked random blacks, the entire world would have known about it by now.

Locally, a black writer editorializes in the Philadelphia Inquirer that gentrification is ultimately responsible. In “BehindTemple attacks, rage often comes with exclusion,” Solomon Jones explains:

In a city where poverty is concentrated outside the universities, we can’t truly expect the poor to watch jobs and wealth and excess pass them by without any reaction at all.

To be sure, violence is the wrong response. And the kids who engaged in it will surely be prosecuted, as they should be.

But I believe those teens are expressing something that has long simmered beneath the surface. They are expressing the rage that comes with exclusion. They are expressing the hurt that comes with invisibility. They are engaged in the inevitable push and pull of change.

TempleUniversity, my alma mater, has reached out to the community with scholarships for local youth, according to spokesman Ray Betzner. They’ve put reading programs in place, tutored high schoolers and even talked to their own students about respecting longtime community residents. But Temple would be wise to reach out into the community with an eye toward creating stronger relationships and greater opportunities for the young people who’ve been pushed aside by a generation of exclusionary development.

The community would be wise to reach back.

So these attackers are among “people who’ve been pushed aside by a generation of exclusionary development.” Like many urban universities, Temple is surrounded by black ghettos, but these are being gentrified thanks to a steady influx of white suburbanites and immigrants.

If you’re barely treading water, and your rent jacks up because of gentrification, you’ll be pissed too. Who wants to be evicted? Blacks, though, are always the victims, and never agents, of any neighborhood’s improvement. Why is that?

In Detroit, a post-apocalypse ghetto of burnt out houses, gutted factories and urban raccoons, Mexicans revived a section near downtown. Unlike the rest of Detroit, there are plenty of restaurants and shops in Mexicantown, and it’s perfectly safe to walk around.


If there were fewer Mexicans, blacks would have more jobs, obviously, so why are our borders wide open? In “Race and Crime in America,” Ron Unz suggests that Hispanics are being imported to replace blacks. They can do the same jobs, sans mayhem. In 1992, East Palto had the highest murder rate in all of America. Then a transformation happened as Hispanics flooded in. Ron Unz:

Over the last twenty years, the homicide rate in that small city dropped by 85%, with similar huge declines in other crime categories as well, thereby transforming a miserable ghetto into a pleasant working-class community, now featuring new office complexes, luxury hotels, and large regional shopping centers. Multi-billionaire Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife recently purchased a large $9 million home just a few hundred feet from the East Palo Alto border, a decision that would have been unthinkable during the early 1990s.

The more blacks there are in a neighborhood, the more crimes, the lower the housing values and the more dysfunctional the public schools, and everyone knows this, including, say, a fresh-off-the-boat immigrant from Mali or Bangladesh. Black maladaptation is only getting worse.

What you have, then, is a group that will largely be excluded from better jobs, universities and housing. As long as the United States shall last, blacks will be an underclass. Their symbolic successes, as in having a half-black president, can’t gloss over the fact that the majority of them are barely afloat.

The in-state tuition for TempleUniversity is $15,688, and the school accepts 56% of its applicants. It’s reasonably priced and easy to get in. Only 13.1% of Temple students are black, however, in a city with 44.1% blacks. Before you charge racism, do consider what Walter Williams has to say:

Among high-school students who graduated in 2014 and took the ACT college readiness exam, here’s how various racial/ethnic groups fared when it came to meeting the ACT’s college readiness benchmarks in at least three of the four subjects: Asians, 57 percent; whites, 49 percent; Hispanics, 23 percent; and blacks, 11 percent. However, the college rates of enrollment of these groups were: Asians, 80 percent; whites, 69 percent; Hispanics, 60 percent; and blacks, 57 percent.

Though all races are being admitted to college too liberally, blacks benefit the most, for only 1/5th of blacks in universities should even be there. Feeling out of place, blacks across the country are demanding separate dormitories.

Blacks are also given preferred treatment when it comes to government jobs and contracts, so the academy, state and media are all in their favor, yet their failures have only increased.

In Ethnic America, Thomas Sowell observes, “The [black] race as a whole has moved from a position of utter destitution—in money, knowledge, and rights—to a place alongside other groups emerging in the great struggles of life. None have had to come from so far back to join their fellow Americans.”

Having achieved not just civic equality but, at times, even favored treatment, blacks still often find themselves on the losing end of life’s struggles. If you dare to suggest that individual blacks should bear at least some responsibilities for their failures, however, you will be branded a racist.

So I’m a racist for writing this, Walter Williams is a racist for pointing out that most blacks attending college shouldn’t be there, and Joe Lauletta is a racist for calling his daughter’s attackers “sick animals.” Everyone is a racist except those 150+ blacks who attacked whites unprovoked.

To many black apologists, blacks can’t be guilty of anything, be it murder, rape, a brick across your face or even racism, because everything they do is just a response to relentless white racism. I’ll insist, though, that these black apologists are the worst racists of all, because to deny someone of moral agency is to reduce him to an animal.

As for the media, their steady suppression or excuse of black misbehavior is an encouragement of even worse. This has to be intentional. They’re enabling more riots, more catch and wrecks, more knock out games.

Teaching in Germany, I showed my students the Philadelphia Police Department’s YouTube channel, without comments. One video after another had a black person assaulting or robbing somebody. When a Hispanic criminal suddenly appeared in the 9th video or so, some students couldn’t help but grin, for they were fleetingly spared of the monotony.

Since the students wanted to learn about the US, I gave them an authentic, unedited glimpse. At their local cinema, Straight Out of Compton was playing. It’s very cool to act black in Germany.

Of course, black apologists will claim that American blacks only rob because they’re oppressed and poor, though I don’t see how this explains the 22,000+ black-on-white rapes/sexual assaults reported yearly, as compared to zero white-on-black sexual attacks. (See table 42 of the Department of Justice’s Criminal Victimization in the United States reports for 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008, the last year available.) Oh yes, white women are so fetishized, blacks can’t help but rape them. None of them can help doing anything, I get it. What a gross insult this is to decent blacks.

Again, to deny someone of moral agency is to reduce him to an animal.

    Consider the following complaint from Solomon Jones:

    “There were 14 census tracts in the city that had gone from majority African American to no longer majority African American”

    If he believes this is a problem, then is “gentrification” really just the politically correct way to say “we want our neighborhood to look like us”?

    You may be right regarding black racism, but it seems to go much further than just attacking whites. They are ethnocentric (which I sincerely sympathize with), but terribly dishonest about it.

    We might finally get a break in the HBD discourse.

    IQ differences has been ignored and suppressed.

    And differences in muscle power that accounts for black-on-white violence has been ignored as black thuggery is blamed on ‘youths’ and ‘teens’.

    But we might finally have HBD discussion of racial differences because this Negro just can’t help himself with ‘Muh Dick’.

    I say white ‘racialists’ should run with this. If HBD and theme of racial differences can only be introduced via ‘muh dick’, it’s better than nothing.

    And it befits the time we are living in when the West is becoming so Afro-sexualized in US and EU with all those black males invading in numbers 100x Normandy.

    One day, people will look back and reflect, “So, an honest discussion of racial differences began with some black guy telling the world his dong be so big.”

    Everything must start somewhere. A seminal event in intellectual history when PC began to die when some Negro unzipped his fly.

    Yeah I get it. Blacks are the most violent group in America. That is just the truth.

    But if we’re deciding who is to blame here, I put the blame solely on white people.

    Jews and Wasps are both masters at divide and conquer. And both groups use blacks (as well as muslims) to keep the native population in check. If there aren’t enough of these people in a society they are a part of, they import them right away.

    Common whites, even if they know the game like many of the people here at Unz, just can’t seem to be bothered to do anything to attack their Jewish/Wasp masters. They will just complain on message boards, that is it.

    Lin should know better and dig deeper as the violent blacks theme is the low hanging fruit and will not lead anyone anywhere.

  7. Meh, it’s only the celebrated Diversity (Black Yewts, heh) beating up the GoodWhite celebrants of diversity at a Liberal college, the institution I most despise. What do I care that Blacks beat liberal college students around a liberal college? Colleges/academia set it up for this to be excused. I don’t care if every professor and administrator at Temple and Penn State get their asses kicked on the way in in the morning and again on the way out. They should get a good taste of what they think OTHERS should have next door. They never considered that Blacks are too stupid (or uncontrollable) to recognize their allies. How confusing to the GoodWhites that they aren’t special snowflakes with immunity to Diversity-dealt beatings and muggings! Their terror is well-deserved. Liberals throughout Liberal cities are getting what they deserve and need, wisdom and an understanding of why enabling the Blacks wasn’t such a hot idea after all.

    This is beneficial to society in that the Liberal kids at the Liberal Democrat colleges are getting the most important lessons they could ever learn (assuming they aren’t killed during said lesson). Stop celebrating Diversity (Blacks), stay the hell away from Diversity (Blacks), arm yourself and finally, understand that the part of college education that instilled tolerance for diversity (Blacks) was a fraud. Meanwhile, with every mugging, every beating, every knockout doled out by Blacks to Whites at Temple, or everywhere GoodWhite Liberals gather, important lessons are learned by the people most in need of schooling. Liberals are responsible for this destruction, best they are on the front line for a good beatin’. Especially hilarious are the race-traitor GoodWhites that march with Blacks at #BLM “gatherings of diversity” (Blacks) who at the end get THEIR dumb Whiteasses kicked and robbed. Sorry, I just love that.

    As they say, a Liberal is merely a Conservative that hasn’t been mugged by Diversity (Blacks) yet. I can imagine dear Christina, beaten by “youths” (Black Yewts, heh) to within an inch of her life, has learned well HER particular lesson. Ain’t no Kumbyah in the real world. Pity her Dad and the school doesn’t teach the truth she now knows so well. It’s also a good lesson to her what Black men think of feminism, women’s rights and domestic violence and rape culture. Gee, only WHITE MEN care about that? Surprise! Like Henry Hill said in Goodfellas, every now and then, ya have to take a beating. There be monsters out there. Here’s your Kumbya: enjoy:

    From the article, “As for the media, their steady suppression or excuse of black misbehavior is an encouragement of even worse. This has to be intentional. They’re enabling more riots, more catch and wrecks, more knock out games.”

    The theme of this article is about how black apologists, i.e. people who apologize for blacks, are excusing and enabling ever worse black violence.

    Blacks have an amorphous itch that they can’t identify or scratch. Locally, after a long battle to gain access to “white” schools, there’s now pressure from blacks for more people who look like them. So why would you go to a predominately white school for this. And there has been resegregation in D.C. to a black museum and a National one for the rest of us. Sammy Davis’ shoes go to the black one and Judy Garland’s slippers go to the National museum.

    This must make it tough for social justice types to stay up with the injustice de jure.

  17. Regarding Germany, Germans are cought up in strange, bizarre mania of blackness, they seem to be obsessed with black people and they love the US Pres every day twice as much as the day before.

    They consider the US to be the most racist place on earth and they rant and ravedaily throught all of their media on the subject of US “Police brutality” toward blacks, regardless of the facts,
    and they see themselves as the champions, and saviors of black Americans.

    German men in their forties and fifties are walking around with their pants under their butts and the whole scenario just gets crazier and crazier.

    Most of the New Gentry if you will consists of well educated, well-heeled lifestyle liberals (read: Elitist Democrats)– people with whom Hillary Clinton would feel right at home. The irony is that the gentrification phenomenon (which is deliberate) comes at the expense of the poor with whom Hillary feigns “solidarity.” That most of this displaced population will vote for a woman who has one arm around their collective shoulders while preparing to knife them in the back with her other hand not only speaks to the level of her cynicism and mendacity but, more importantly, speaks to the level of their collective intelligence–which is clearly not very high.

    —I examine Germans’ infatuation with American black culture in “Black and Blonde.”—

    It’s a kind of Afro-Aryanism.

    Aryanism has been vilified cuz of Nazism.

    But Afro-Aryanism, a kind of supremacism, gets a pass because blacks are associated with victimhood.

    But these infatuation with blackness is really about worship of black supremacism in sports, music, thug culture, sex, oratory, and charisma.

    Ironically, Germans(and many others) are drawn to the supremacist iconography of blackness while pretending it’s all about sympathy for victim-hood.

    Well, Vietnamese have a long victim history. They got crushed badly by so many imperialist powers. But Viets are small, scrawny, and short. They don’t win in sports, and even Viet women reject Viet men for men of other nations.
    So, all this Liberal crap about sympathy for ‘victims’ is mostly hokum. Libs are into success and hierarchy, and they really only care about victim groups with claims to superiority(in sports, business, creativity, etc). After all, so many Iraqi children died due to sanctions in 90s. Who gave a crap? Palestinians(a mediocre people) have suffered for so long, but who gives a crap about them? Edward Said was an outlier. A first rank intellectual, he made Palestinianism cool. But again, it had to do with the fascination with his superior intellect.

    Still, there is the legendary pimp Tom Vu.

    Susan Sontag was onto something in her essay on Riefenstahl when she said the ex-Nazi film-makers fascination with African tribes had similar themes with Nazi obsession with power and virility.

    Btw, I hear rap culture is very big in Vietnam too. Viet women wanna dress like whores and Viet boys imitate black rappers.

    US gift to the world. Rapping, thugging, and twerking.

    Off Topic. I’m curious if there are stereotypes about differences in appearance among Vietnamese. I knew some foreign students from Vietnam in high school, and they had eyes that were semi-rounded and darker skin, almost like what I would expect from Burmese or Assamese. However, the Vietnamese (and other Indochinese) immigrants I’ve met seem to look like what most Americans would probably think of when “Asian” comes to mind: very slender eyelids and light yellow-ish skin.

  27. It’s as though most contemporary Blacks behave exactly like the southern segregationists predicted.

    The problem is not getting Libs to see the truth. It’s getting them to accept the mess they made. Rationality has nothing to do with this. They can sense that the world is not conforming to their model. The more obvious the imbalance between the lived world and the liberal facsimile, the more desperate Lib’s become to wish actual reality away or blame it all on others.

    I detect a lot of hysteria on the left as they approach the point of no return. They only way out for them is to “discover” that Blacks are not really people of the left at all.

  28. @Marcus

    Nah, probably not:Endowments. The Ivy League and biggest State Universities are hedge funds with a college attached. Our esteemed Mr. Unz has an election scheduled for the alumnus of Harvard to vote out tuition for students, a mere 4% of their budget. Not sure when that happens, but even under depression-level downturns, Universities are the best investment in town. No downturn kills the rich, ever. Perhaps non-self-supporting Diversity doesn’t make it in, but otherwise, colleges will always have lots of paying customers.

    Ron, when is the alumnus referendum?

  29. @Anon

    And differences in muscle power that accounts for black-on-white violence has been ignored as black thuggery is blamed on ‘youths’ and ‘teens’.

    Whites are stronger than blacks.

    Blacks have the fiber types for sprinting (American blacks), and certain Kenyan tribes and Eurasians have fiber types for strength. Blacks just “look stronger” due to lower average fat-free body mass.

    The United States is based on “white supremacy” and is out to kill blacks.

    Zero laws in the US grant entitlements or privileges to white people, or white males.

    In stark contrast, there are thousands of laws granting government entitlements to protected class groups, sometimes also labeled as diversity:

    Diversity By Group:

    African American, Alternate Lifestyle, Asian, Disabled, Hispanic & Latino, Jewish, Native American, Women


    For example, here’s a sampling of entitlements granted to Blacks or Afro-Americans:

    1. Government enforced Affirmative Action for Afro-blacks
    2. Government 8A set-aside contracts for Afro-black owned businesses
    3. Deliberate media and government misrepresentation of massive Afro-black crime wave
    4. Frequent mass Afro-black rioting, assaulting, looting and arson without prosecution or suppression
    5. Afro-Black terrorists organizations operate freely in public (Black Panthers, BLM, Blood and Crips, Nation of Islam, Million Man March)
    6. Servile government support for historically black colleges and afro-black scholarship programs
    7. Unprosecuted afro-black Panther intimidation of voters at polls
    8. Politically partisan Afro-black churches and associations granted tax exempt status
    9. Most Afro-black children’s welfare financed by taxpayers
    10.Government anti-discrimination laws for Afro-blacks
    11.Hate speech law prosecutions in favor of Afro-blacks, and other protected classes
    12.Preferential immigration, asylum, and citizenship for Afro-blacks
    13. Disproportionate number of Afro-blacks in cushy government employment
    14. Afro-black voters not required to display photo ID
    15. Unrealistic portrayal of Afro-blacks in movies and TV
    16. Afro-black civil right organizations financed and led by filthy rich protected class people
    17. Election of the most unbelievably stupid members of the US congress
    18. Afro-black majority city’s bailout by county, state and federal taxpayer
    19. Afro-black history month
    20. Ridiculous Afro-black studies in public schools and colleges
    21. Astronomical Afro-black STD and HIV rates are not a controlled public health hazard
    22. Banks forced to give loans to Afro-blacks with bad credit
    23. White supremacists blamed for Afro-black false flag hate crimes
    24. At least 70% of afro-black children are bastards
    25. Afro-black Caucus in the US congress
    26. Sanctuary cities for Afro-blacks, and other protected classes
    27. Afro-black diversity scheme imposed on white majority nations

    —The United States is based on “white supremacy” and is out to kill blacks.—

    US used to be based on white supremacy that justified wars of conquest against American Indians and slavery of blacks.

    But once America gave up on White Supremacy, white folks are mostly about White Security. They can’t help but realize that blacks commit a lot of crime and too often talk/act like thugs.

    So, it’s not about White Supremacy and Killing Blacks but White Security because blacks rob, rape, beat up, and kill too many people. If blacks treat other blacks in thug-like manner, how will they treat non-blacks who, by the way, are weaker than blacks?

    So, the current theme is about white security from Black Thug Supremacy.
    That was what Stop and Frisk was all about.

    Hi Marcus,

    Originally, Vietnam was just its northern part, so it’s like a funnel, with China right over it. The central part was Champa, a Muslim kingdom now swallowed up by the Vietnamese. The south belonged to Cambodia.

    Present day Vietnam has 54 ethnic groups, with several of them quite dark. Small as it is, Vietnam is actually a stew of many different peoples, and it has also seen many foreigners over the centuries.

    Roman coins were found in Vietnam. Its alphabetized writing system was devised by a Portuguese, Alexandre de Rhodes. In Hoi An, there’s a Japanese bridge from 1590. Saigon has a huge Chinatown, Cho Lon. You go in into the highlands, north or south, there are all kinds of tribal peoples. Africans were brought to Vietnam by the French (and some Vietnamese taken to Africa!).

    Nong Duc Manh, a recent General Secretary of the Communist Party, is a Tay and widely believed to be a son of Ho Chi Minh.

    —–If there were fewer Mexicans, blacks would have more jobs, obviously, so why are our borders wide open? In “Race and Crime in America,” Ron Unz suggests that Hispanics are being imported to replace blacks.—–

    A lot of blacks are none to happy about this. On the other hand, most blacks have no power or representation.
    The blacks who matter are those with stake in the system. And they must know by now that black success and power depends mostly in government and state jobs.

    Though black elites make the usual noises about investment in the black community and etc, they seem to have given up on blacks as a whole. The rhetoric is there, but they are just looking out for themselves, and it means dependence on government.
    Black elites know that, even without mass immigration and competition from newcomers, a lot of blacks are not gonna amount to much. The old good-paying working jobs are gone. Black education had hit bottom. Black family is just a memory.
    So, a whole bunch of blacks don’t have much of a future of any kind.
    But the ‘successful’ blacks do have a stake in the system, and that means government jobs. For those jobs to continue and expand, there has to be an expanding tax base, an it sure ain’t the Negroes.
    But if you bring in immigrants, they actually work hard in the private sector and pay taxes that keep the government afloat. That way, the black elites keep their government jobs and black masses get their welfare.

    Now… what if immigrants eventually compete for government jobs with blacks?
    Then, black elites who rely on government might feel the squeeze, but for the time being, black middle class and rich class depend mostly on government spending. For government spending to remain viable, there has to be many people working in private enterprise and paying taxes. And blacks aren’t doing that in big enough numbers. And too many white working class and lower-class have lost hope and giving up too. They would also rather live on government dole.
    So, that means immigrants are necessary cuz they will be motivated to ‘work hard’ at any job to make the ‘American Dream’ come true.

    Anyway, when you look at people like Donna Brazile, the attitude is totally, “I got mine, and FU.” She has a stake in the system, and that’s all she cares about. As blacks are naturally more self-centered and self-aggrandizing, serving themselves beats all.
    Even if someone like Brazile could be convinced that Trump may offer more for blacks by restricting immigration, she will stick with status quo cuz people like her get so much from it. Also, people like her may be correct in being skeptical of reviving black communities since so many blacks are so useless.

    After all, there are so many black communities without competition from other groups, but everything goes to hell.

    And when Zimbabwe kicked out white farmers, the farms turned to crap.
    When Uganda kicked out Hindus, its economy sank.

    Black elites can only thrive as parasites of the state, and for the state to have funds, there has to be enough people creating wealth and paying taxes.
    African nations depend on the economic activity of other nations like China and India and European nations.
    Blacks in the US rely on others.

    Blacks are the ultimate parasites in the sense that they are NOTHING without other races to leech off.
    Most other races can do very well or okay on their own.
    But blacks are zero without others to leech off.

    Mexicans without America is Mexico.
    Turks without Europe is Turkey.
    Chinese without the West is China.
    But Africa without rest of world is jungleland.

    Speaking of Africans in Vietnam, check out this Wikipedia tidbit about Jean-Bédel Bokassa:

    On 7 September 1950, Bokassa headed to Indochina as the transmissions expert for the battalion of Saigon-Cholon […] During his stay in Indochina, he married a 17-year-old Vietnamese girl named Nguyen Thi Hué. After Hué bore him a daughter, Bokassa had the child registered as a French national. Bokassa left Indochina without his wife and child, as he believed he would return for another tour of duty in the near future.

    As the president of the Central African Republic, Bokassa went looking for his daughter in Vietnam in 1975. He found and took her to his country. As a kid in Saigon, I read this in the news. Some of the tabloids spun as an African king reclaiming his lost princess!

  49. @Corvinus

    First if all, I don’t need studies to tell me anything about racial strength differences as I have personal experience working with hundreds of people.

    Second, do you think that “genetically stronger” means “muscular strength”?

    After testing 10,000 genes and analyzing the genetic makeup of 15 Americans of African descent and 20 Americans of European decent, researchers found that the Euro-Americans showed less variation than their African American counterparts.

    Says nothing about muscular strength. It does talk about how European Americans have less genetic variation than African Americans, though.

    I can’t find the paper at the moment so here’s the abstract of the paper you linked to. Do you see anything about muscle strength? Or was the article talking about genetic diversity as “genetic strength”, meaning that whites are “less diverse” genetically due to being descended from a small band of about 3000 people who left out of Africa?

    If you knew anything about muscle fiber typing and even competitions where the genetic freak of nature’s go, Eurasians are always stronger than blacks. Blacks are naturally better bodybuilders. Learn about muscle fiber typing then watch a few strongman and powerlifting competitions and get back to me.

    The fact is that most blacks and white liberals fear that there is something to this genetic inferiority business and they believe it precisely because of the extremely high crime rate of the black American underclass. One of the idiotic “solutions” they’ve come up with is encouraging part-black mixed race people to identify with blacks. Those who refuse to identify with blacks are denigrated and those who do are lionized and promoted as heroes. I know a Michigan man of mostly European ancestry and European phenotype who prostituted himself in order to obtain a high-level civil service job. Calling himself “black” meant that he didn’t have to compete with other qualified candidates and, if anyone tried to get rid of him, he could arouse the local NAACP and other Negro elites. White liberals love such people because it means that they can associate with middle-class white people like themselves while getting the same credit as if they were associating with disgusting Lakesha or Jamal from the ghetto.

    American negro’s are violent, just as whites would be if they had been whipped up by years of grievance mongering.

    The truth is that left wing parties throughout the west have used grievance whether racial, or religious or gender based, or simple scaremongering over climate to seize power by promoting themselves as the party of fairness and equality.

    It’s all a sham of course and it has created many victims.

    White women have done ok, although most don’t have babies and have swapped a life of relative ease and meaning for an office job and no kids.

    Black women have done very poorly although at least they have children, paid for by the state and often to multiple unemployed fathers.

    Black men have done very poorly no one will hire them or marry them.

    Meanwhile the left wing media promotes every sort of horrible sexual and illicit pathology like it is the essence of virtue and freedom.

    Of course many of the poorest, especially blacks commit themselves to a life of illicit pleasure and drug abuse and often wind up in jail or dead.

    White lefties simply throw a few coins their way and sleep well at night consoling themselves with the thought it will be worth it in the long run and if they are so dumb they cannot handle the freedom they deserve what they get.

    White conservatives enjoying the same illicit pleasures their power, wealth and education allow, pretend it is something within black people themselves that is to blame, consoling themselves they are simply superior and deserve their wealth.

    Blacks have a right to be angry.

    Yes, definitely. Ethnic Chinese were traditionally in small businesses and as such were suspected of petty bourgeois tendencies and disloyalty by the Communists, as well as resented by other ethnicities as local elites who exploited them and descendants of the rival Chinese. The first wave of boat people had a lot of ethnic Chinese. Tribal groups in the interior hills such as the Montagnards and the Hmong (in Laos) had always resisted civil authority and the CIA used that tendency for everything they could against the Communists. Large numbers of Hmong migrated to the US rather than face the assimilation being forced upon them by the Laotian government after the war ended. The American Hmong are still quite tribal.

    Colin Flaherty is a rank racist. However, that does not mean that his theme should be ignored or dismissed. In fact, CF’s racism occludes what would otherwise be his most central point. The convergence of intergenerational poverty, race, and politicized race fetishism is the real nexus. Right wingers can never get to that realization because they are too indulgently outraged that this population of black people don’t work hard and behave civilly. Liberals are the other side of the same coin, holding that to see racial patterns is itself an act of racism. There are costs to the mass fetishization of black which was necessary for anointing King POTUS Obomber. So ultimately, left and right are in a perverse agreement to worship sacred cows.

    All the religious groups were anti-Communist. Many northern Catholics went South in 1954 during the partition. The most Catholic province in Vietnam is Nam Dinh. Google “Nam Dinh churches” to see some amazing ones.

    In the South, the Cao Dai are very active in the Mekong Delta. They hate the Communists to this day. Caodaism is a religion founded in the early 20th century. They communicate with spirits through seance sessions, and their eccentricity shows up in their rather garish temples.

    Lonely Planet describes their Holy See in Tay Ninh:

    Set above the front portico of the Great Temple is the divine eye […]

    A mural in the front entry hall depicts the three signatories of the ‘Third Alliance between God and Man’: the Chinese statesman and revolutionary leader Dr Sun Yat-sen (Sun Zhongshan; 1866–1925) holds an ink stone, while the Vietnamese poet Nguyen Binh Khiem (1492–1587) and French poet and author Victor Hugo (1802–85) write ‘God and humanity’ and ‘Love and justice’ in Chinese and French (Nguyen Binh Khiem writes with a brush, Victor Hugo uses a quill pen). Nearby signs in English, French and German each give a slightly different version of the fundamentals of Cao Daism.

    […] At the far end of the sanctuary, eight plaster columns entwined with multicoloured dragons support a dome representing the heavens. Under the dome is a giant star-speckled blue globe with the ‘divine eye’ on it.


    Up near the altar are barely discernible portraits of six figures important to Cao Daism: Sakyamuni (Siddhartha Gautama, the founder of Buddhism), Ly Thai Bach (Li Taibai, a fairy from Chinese mythology), Khuong Tu Nha (Jiang Taigong, a Chinese saint), Laotse (the founder of Taoism), Quan Cong (Guangong, Chinese God of War) and Quan Am (Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy).

    In 1998, I asked a man in that temple about the publication of their religious books. Under his breath and very tersely, he told me that their books were still banned. It’s amazing that he trusted me enough to say this, but then again, people are always telling me stuff.

    Buddhists hate Communism too. Several of their top monks have been imprisoned and tortured. Same with Catholic priests.

    Many of the Chinese in Vietnam don’t feel very Vietnamese, and during the war, most just wanted to stay out of it.

    Every so often, you’ll hear some leftist nitwit say that “people of color” learn racism from whites. When I was small, I’d hear kids sing this ditty:

    A Chinese asshole, it’s all one and the same.
    The one who doesn’t clean his asshole,
    We’ll kick back to China.

    Though this song is no longer in circulation, anti-Chinese sentiment is high thanks to the island dispute. Neighbors fight. I’m sure in Cambodia, there’s a cute anti-Vietnamese song or two.

    Tribal peoples suffer the same insults worldwide, so in Vietnam, it’s also loss of land and resources from new Vietnamese settlements, logging, wildlife poaching and mining, etc. During the war, the Americans used the tribal peoples’ hatred of Vietnamese to get them to fight the Vietnamese Communists.

    Many of these tribes straddle borders. The Hmong, for example, can be found in China, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand. For fighting against the Vietnamese Communists during the war, they were persecuted heavily after it.

    There are lots of Hmongs in Minnesota and Montana. When I was in Missoula in 2008, I was told that Hmongs occupied half of the stalls of the weekly farmers’ market.

    There’s a huge Vietnamese community in Houston, and it got started early. In 1976, I spent two months in Houston and there were already Vietnamese there.

    Along the Gulf Coast, there are Vietnamese too, and they fish. I’d be surprised to find a single Hmong fisherman down there.

    Alamo Bay is a 1985 film about conflicts between Texas locals and the new Vietnamese arrivals.

    Also in 1976, I was briefly on the Louisiana Coast, and there were Vietnamese there. There’s a PBS documentary about how the Louisiana Vietnamese dealt with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It’s called The Village of Versailles. Its director is a Taiwanese-American, curiously enough. (A great dude, he bought me dinner in New Orleans!)

    If every time an immigrant from south of the border entered the country a member of our native Negro underclass magically disappeared in a fetid puff of smoke, then I would welcome these new immigrants with hossanahs. Unfortunately this is not the case. The Negro underclass remains and becomes more dysfunctional and parasitic with every passing year. Meanwhile, we are importing a new, much larger, and only somewhat less dysfunctional and parasitic underclass to compete with the older one.

    Hi iffen,

    I’d say that breakdown is incorrect. The Chams lived in all of central Vietnam, and they’re not even on that list! The spoken accent in central Vietnam is utterly unlike both north and south, and I strongly suspect it’s because of the influence of Cham speakers.

    Inrasara is a Vietnamese poet of Cham descent. I used to drink beer with this guy in Saigon. Writing under a pseudonym, he published a poem called “Gift of the Devil.” I translate:

    poets make poems—I terrorize
    boys and girls make out—I terrorize
    seamstresses enter factories, kids leave schools—I terrorize

    sunny, rainy, windy, stormy, traffic jams, the dollar fluctuates—I terrorize
    priests give sermons, singers barhop, the ruling class oppresses, billionaires bilk funds, the poor starve—I terrorize

    they make love
    they procreate
    they raise and educate each other
    they praise or condemn each other
    they deceive or are frank with each other
    they worry about AIDS the black hole the green revolution the white death
    I terrorize

    no one terrorizes—I terrorize
    it doesn’t matter if any person, group or party terrorizes or not—I terrorize
    I admit to being a terrorist, whether or not it was me who terrorized
    they protest and condemn me—I terrorize

    mankind globalize or return to the caves—I still terrorize
    I terrorize on earth, the moon, mars, the comets, I terrorize everywhere
    on stars they’ll discover millions of years from now
    dead in this life I’ll continue to terrorize into infinity in subsequent lives

    happy—I terrorize; sad—I terrorize; neither happy nor sad—I terrorize
    I eat sleep fuck piss just to terrorize
    they make bombs, I buy—I terrorize
    unable to buy, I make my own—I terrorize

    TERRORIST is MY name
    it’s what I do, it’s my fate, my love and hate, my game and war, my promised land, my reality and void, my belief and passion, my heaven…

    Although Inrasara is only goofing around here about being a Muslim terrorist, I’m sure there’s a strong undercurrent of resentment in that community. Their architecture, at least, was much superior to the Vietnamese’.

    Their history is not taught in Vietnamese schools. Their language was suppressed, but now there are a few TV shows in the Cham language, and there are a few Cham-language writers.

    The Vietnamese used to call the hill people “savages” [mọi], then they became “highland people” [người thượng], then “New Vietnamese” [người Việt Nam mới]. Now, they’re just called “minorities” [người thiểu số].

    As with the American-Indians here, some urban Vietnamese romanticize tribal peoples. In 1995, I found myself at a party inside a tribal house-on-stilts in the middle of Hanoi. Dressed like tribal people, 12-year-old Vietnamese girls danced and sang. Alcohol was drank from reeds out of a common jar, tribal style.

    There was only one white guy there, an American. Since many people had taken turns singing, very drunkenly, he was urged to the same. The dude obliged and tortured everybody with a blood curling version of “House of the Rising Sun.” Everyone loved it. We drank on like savages.

We especially tried with all our might, during the 1940s,’50s and ’60s ,when they forced integration into everything that was Ours, especially the schools ( while at the same time, they were sending their children to what were then still all-White Private Schools,far away from their beloved non-Whites they claimed their hearts bled for ) . Most of us knew what the long-run results would be, and the 50+ years have proven us 100% RIGHT, yet they STILL refuse to listen to us.

    We fought in the streets,rioted, everything. And before WWII, we always won. But after 1945, most politicians and the press, began betraying their fellow common Whites, and have done it more and more with every day goes by. And when We realized that no matter how hard we could fight, it was no longer possible for us to win, that we would be totally betrayed by Whites in power that were brainwashed with White Guilt ( Or, more likely, had been bought and sold by Jews ), and they would defend only the Blacks and other 3rd world races – no matter what or how horrible – and we’ve lost our will ever since.

    Black women have done very poorly although at least they have children, paid for by the state and often to multiple unemployed fathers.

    The racial dynamic affects black men and black women very differently. Upward mobility among blacks is heavily concentrated among black women. Successful black women face a real problem with a shortage of marriageable black men. The black women who should have children are the ones that aren’t. Among the black underclass, government aid is directed strongly towards black women. The women do not face the same consequences of hoodrat pathology that men do – it’s easier for them to stay alive, fed, and with a roof over their head while living a life that is essentially negative. They teach the pathology to their children because they never faced the full consequences of their own pathology.

  79. Thirdeye says:

    It boils down to one thing: culture. Black culture took a pathological nosedive towards the end of the 1960s and it’s going to take something equally radical to remedy it, sad to say.

    American politics is strange.

    Jewish elites use shabbos goy politicians to invoke black gun violence to take guns away from whites who need guns to defend themselves from blacks who are stronger/more aggressive and often armed with illegally acquired firearms.

    Main reason for the Jewish War on Guns is they fear all those armed gentiles. As Jews control elite institutions of government, military, and the law(that dictate policy for the police), they want all the guns in the state, none in civilian hands.

    “Oh yes, ‘common’ Whites DID try, for decades ,to attack Our Jewish / WASP masters.”

    You know the Seven Deadly Sins?

    It is empty white pride that destroyed them in the end.

    Whites should have resisted with honest humility, not bigoted pride.

    But White Male Pride got the best of them.

    This is why whites lost the battle of the Moral Narrative.

    If whites had been honest and swallowed their white male pride and said, “Blacks are stronger, more aggressive, and fearsome, and as such, blacks pose a threat to the white race”, they could have had the moral upperhand. Whites should have said, “Look how Jack Johnson whupped all them white boys and took white women. We don’t want that fate for our sons and daughters.”

    By invoking black thug superiority, whites could have had a compelling moral reason in calling for Safe Spaces for weaker whites. White males could have used the ‘strong-and-dong’ argument, i.e. blacks are more strong and have bigger dongs. So, black guys whup white boys who are emasculated and turned into wussy boys. I have no illusions about this cuz I spent my childhood in the city and saw black muscle domination over whites so often. I know white flight(and Jewish flight) were morally justified on righteous race-ism, the realization of real racial differences. It was no contest.
    And this is why I agree with David Cole that there are worse things than Mexican immigration: Too many Negroes.

    So, if white males had been humbler and more honest, they could have upheld a rational and truthful race-ism that addresses racial differences. They could have arrived at some means to offer reparations to blacks(for slavery and discrimination) and separation whereby whites have white lands and blacks have theirs.

    But instead, white male pride got too full of itself. It shouted “ni**er” at black activists and acted so tough and strong IN FRONT OF THE NEWS CAMERA during the Civil Rights Era. It gave the impression of peaceful and helpless blacks being mauled by big tough hateful and arrogant whites. It gave the impression that the banjo-playing retard in DELIVERANCE could beat up Sonny Liston.
    Those white segregationists were acting in fear that was justified on grounds that blacks are more muscular and more aggressive. But they didn’t put this narrative out there in front. White guys were to full of white male pride to admit their fear of blacks with strong-and-dong advantage.

    So, with all the moral advantage of noble victimhood on the black side, ‘common whites’ have been losing the battle ever since.

    A political struggle has to be MORALLY JUSTIFIED, and the fact is ‘common whites’ often fought stupidly, arrogantly, and pridefully. Power without moral justification just looks thuggish. (This is why Jews cling to much to Holocaust narrative to justify Zionism. Without such moral narrative context, it looks like Powerful Israel military crushing Palestinian kids with rocks, which is what it really is.) White males should have been humble and honest. They should have said in the early part of the 20th century(or better yet in latter part of 19th century), “Those black guys are built like John Henry and can kick our white ass and destroy our manhood in front of our own womenfolk who will be turned into jungle fever whores. And in order to defend our race and the well-being of our white sons, we need to separate from blacks, the superior race when it comes to thuggery and beastly intimidation.”

    So, 100 yrs of moral opportunity was totally wasted by white male pride that simply could’t face the stark truth.

    It’s like the duel in Seven Samurai when one of the guys is cut down because his pride dares not admit that the other swordsman is superior.
    The leader samurai says, “This is so stupid. It is so obvious.”

    Pride can get you killed. Be humble, express your fears honestly and rationally, and base your movement on that.

    Arabs too never learned anything cuz of their pride. They got whupped so bad by Jews in the 6 Day War. It was due to Arab weaknesses, failures, and idiocies on so many level. But Arab pride never addressed those concerns and just made a lot of empty noises and carried on with business-as-usual. As such, the Arab world failed to make progress and became easy to mess up by greater powers.

    So what exactly is the protocol here if you are attacked by, say, a group of a 6 or 7 teenage black girls? Most people will reflexively just tell you you should fight back, but if you are white or even Asian, and especially if you are male, in this politically insane climate you could very well wind up getting depicted as being the one to blame or at least as much to blame and get some serious jail time, destroy your family, and be financially destroyed to boot. You might take some damage taking some licks, but you likely would feel it would not be as devastating on many levels as the other option.

    I think this is a big part of the problem leading many people get beaten- the confusion (and the paralysis it generates in a conflict) among ordinary law-abiding citizens who have the need to fight back, but feel they cannot from an ingrained expectation of law and order and conflicting feelings from the knowledge that the system is against them and for the perp(s).

    Peter Lee had an interesting column recently ( The take-away is that American obsession with racial resentments weakens class resentments. This obviously benefits the billionaire class. One wonders–have the billionaires noticed? could they try to work this to their advantage? Perhaps. It can explain otherwise inexplicable phenomena such as why the MSM picks such terrible examples (Ferguson, etc.) when trying to highlight persecution of blacks — the examples both inflame blacks and make whites angry at the unjust accusations, and the intention might have been to stoke racial animosity.

  89. RudyM says:

    What you have, then, is a group that will largely be excluded from better jobs, universities and housing. As long as the United States shall last, blacks will be an underclass.

    I think this is too categorical and too pessimistic. A federal jobs guarantee (for those willing and able to work) has not been tried and might go a further distance toward integrating more blacks into the larger society than welfare programs. (Where will the money come from? The same place it came from for the bank bailouts: keystrokes. But this time in the public interest.)

    Change in black underclass culture seems like a possibility, in principle anyway. Admittedly, it’s hard to see how it could be changed from the outside (given the frequently immense hostility of much of the black underclass to those who try to help them; as well as the limits to which outsiders can intervene, short of simply taking over all child-rearing responsibilities) or from the inside (given the number of completely damaged mothers bringing children into that world, without a husband or regular partner of any sort).

    Economic change might be able to push the culture to change, however. (See some of the examples in Bad Samaritans by Ha-Joon Chang.)

    I’m not categorically saying there aren’t genetic differences that will inevitably hold blacks back, but I am not yet convinced either. I cannot help thinking of black men and women I have known who came from dysfunctional ghetto background, but still made their lives into something. Would it have been obvious, before they escaped from the environment they were born into, that they were some of the ones who were going to make it?

    In the meantime, blacks should not be coddled when they engage in criminal or anti-social activity. And the sorts of incidents mentioned in this article should not be swept under the carpet.

  96. Since this article proposes that such groups as Hispanics are preferable, based on one or two cases, and that blacks are consistently bad (based again on several anecdotal incidents), I wonder why it is that many countries with Hispanic populations (Guatamala, Honduras, Venezuala, Mexico, for example) consistently have a high intentional homicide rate? This report is heavy on angst but lacks an honest examination of what the larger picture shows. Is it enough to conclude that whites should fear blacks based on one or two indicators? (These incidents do point to the existence of a problem, and who wouldn’t want to be careful?). It also is true that blacks are targeted by police and jailed at a much higher rate than other groups but such strong policing and punishment has not improved things much. In fact, there is much evidence that high incarceration rates have contributed to destroyed families. I agree that there is a lot to be concerned about. I agree that community leaders should rethink policies and take responsibility. I just don’t trust simpleminded approaches based on appearances.

  99. It’s wrong to claim black men are more prone to violence.

    All men are capable of great violence when provoked or threatened.

    The most dangerous men of all are little men with big ideas of some utopia or other, particularly if they have no faith in ultimate justice, ie God. They are capable of genocide on a vast scale. And they always sleep well at night because they think the sacrifice is worth it, they imagine they are really doing everyone a favour.

    Ultimately such people are always tribal. Us the right and important, the overmen and the others lesser men, deserving of their fate.

    If anyone should be blamed for the violence and social degradation in the black communities it is the white men and women who have destroyed their jobs and families, who allowed evil men to peddle drugs to their children, who exploit their anger for political gain.

    Increasingly as the cracks in contemporary democratic states widen they are increasingly sucking the life out of poor white communities as well, the degradation and exploitation are growing.

    Meanwhile double income white families with few kids and big houses wring their hands occasionally and mouth all the correct platitudes constantly. They never seem to connect the dots, that they both have well paying jobs, while at the other end of society millions of families are lucky to have any job at all, and even then it is impossible to raise a family on it.

    The white middle class couple never seem to get that their liberal permissive morally corrupt utopia has been poison for poor whites and blacks. They titillate themselves with x rated movies, they make the movies, they rarely abort their children, they might take drugs but are smart enough and rich enough to handle it, they know all the theories and all the books. They wash their hands of the problems, our intentions are good they claim.

    Meanwhile the poor have been ravaged and devastated for the last 50 years by their liberal utopia, their families are virtually non existent, drugs are everywhere. Their jobs in China.

    Dead wrong, but of course the leftist media and leftist academia love to give this impression.

    Fact is that the US lost approx 55 000 men ( 55 000 too many ) in Viet Nam, and the north lost approx 2.5 million, which signifies a strange version of “winning” and “losing” on your behalf.

    To top top it off Viet Nam is permeated with US influence, businesses etc, so who REALLY lost the war.

    Plus the US troops were forced to fight with one hand tied behind their backs, through the futile “Rules of engagement” imposed upon them by their own gov.

    I hate war, and think it is the ultimate expression of insanity, but if you get into a military conflict then win or quit, and this is what the US ultimately chose to do.

    And if one wishes to extrapolate the “Losing” aspect of this conflict : Yeah they did lose in a sense of the word, they lost to the commie professors and the student demonstrators.

    Readers here already know that blacks are violent,

    Yeah, dems violent blacks were responsible for the witch hunts, killing off Indians, the world war(s), dropping atomic weapons, Korea, Vietnam, Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, etc., etc., etc…

    And we all “know” that most executions by cops are done by black ones too. And watch out for the black mafiosi.

    One of the most significant events in Tulsa’s history was the Race Riot that occurred in 1921. Following World War I, Tulsa boasted one of the most affluent African American communities in the country, known as the Greenwood District. This thriving business district and surrounding residential area was referred to as “Black Wall Street.” In June of 1921, a series of events [ whites attacked the black community of Tulsa, Oklahoma.] nearly destroyed the entire Greenwood area.

    June 17, 1932
    In the darkest days of the Great Depression, thousands of World War I veterans, along with their wives and children, marched on the U.S. Capitol to demand advance payment of a veterans bonus approved in 1924. These “bonus marchers” remained encamped in tents and huts around Washington until heavily armed troops, led by General Douglas MacArthur, forced them to disperse.

    The Rosewood massacre was a violent, racially motivated massacre of blacks and destruction of a black town that took place during the first week of January 1923 in rural Levy County, Florida… and the town of Rosewood was abandoned and destroyed in what contemporary news reports characterized as a race riot.

    Florida had an especially high number of lynchings of black males in the years before the massacre, including a well-publicized incident in December 1922.

    Remember the 1985 police assault on MOVE too.

    “On the morning of May 13, 1985, dozens of Philadelphia police, fire fighters and city officials amassed around the MOVE house to force the group out. A standoff ensued, as MOVE members bunkered down inside the house exchanged gunfire with police outside. At 5:30 that evening, a Philadelphia police helicopter dropped a bomb onto the roof of the house in an effort to drive MOVE members out. “

    “It’s wrong to claim black men are more prone to violence.”

    -Not according to Federal crime stats. Blacks are way more prone per capita of murder, assault, rape, etc. Common sense from living in the real world will also tell you that. How black a city is, is a good predictor of the crime levels.

    “If anyone should be blamed for the violence and social degradation in the black communities it is the white men and women who have destroyed their jobs and families, who allowed evil men to peddle drugs to their children, who exploit their anger for political gain. ”

    -Like Linh says, where is the self-agency in it? The liberals have been rolling out the red carpet for blacks, giving them every privilege in the book for over half a century, but they still screw it up. Meanwhile, they have been holding down whites and Asians, blaming whites for everything up through solar flares, and still whitey has been surpassing blacks.

    Where is the black blame? Shame, when administered correctly, is a tool for positive social change. It’s done no good to blame whites because blacks have been the ones at fault. Perhaps if we encouraged blacks to self-reflect, to police themselves more, forced them to be responsible, like civilized adults, no excuses, we’d see crime drop considerably among blacks. Ironically, this would help blacks more than anyone.

    I have to disagree with you, White people are not responsible for the behavior of Blacks. Each individual is responsible for their own actions. Saying that the actions of a handful of people who happened to be White means that all Whites are responsible when Blacks rape, assault or murder is ridiculous. Many poor people get up every day and go to work and pay their bills and try to support their families without resorting to violence. White, Black, Brown and Yellow. There is no justification for violence against another individual except in self-defense. You can no more justify raping or robbing me because some of your ancestors were slaves, then I can justify raping or robbing you because some of my ancestors were indentured servants or the bank seized my great grandfather’s farm.
    Individuals are responsible for their actions. If individual Blacks don’t want to be separated from their families because they are imprisoned, they shouldn’t commit a crime that will put them there.

    Find a Chinese neighborhood, cause they don’t believe in bank accounts
    Second, you find a crew and a driver, someone who ring the doorbell
    And someone that ain’t scared to do what it do
    Third, you pull up at the spot
    Park, watch, ring the doorbell and knock
    Four, make sure nobody is home (knock knock)
    They gone, okay it’s on
    Don’t be scared nigga you in now
    If the police come you gonna find out who your friends now
    That ain’t them talking, that’s your mind playing tricks on you
    You’re conscious cause you know you got nines with two clips on you
    But fuck that, motherfuck that plasma
    And fuck that laptop, go and get that jewelry box
    You tryna get paid? Go take that jewelry box to the Slauson
    They’ll give you cash back in the same day

    Celebrating the thug life, blacks like YG make crime cool, but of course it’s everybody else’s fault so many blacks end up in jail.

    -If that’s the establishment’s plan, it’s a poor solution. It’s really just resulting in the replacement of whites for Hispanics. Blacks are still remaining around the same 10-15% of the population. If they don’t have jobs, they’re going to be even more of an underclass, relying even more on welfare, committing even more crime, etc. Hispanics are not really good replacements for whites- they may commit crime less than blacks, but it is still considerably higher than whites. And they may work more than blacks, but their net productivity, creativity, goodwill towards their community (volunteering, environmental protection, etc) are all way below that of whites. Hispanics are still net welfare dependents, burdening the country.

    Making the wall, deporting illegals, removing race-based privilege, reinstating free association, requiring blacks to accept the law, the same law, no excuses, as whites; these all work in unison much better than encouraging Hispanic immigration.

    Non stop wanking due to a cornflake deficiency? I dunno.

    That explains round shoulders, ya know!

    One of the leading advocates of circumcision was John Harvey Kellogg. He also advocated the consumption of Kellogg’s corn flakes to prevent masturbation, which he said caused weak mindedness.

    Do Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Help Control Masturbation?


    In the early part of this century, John Harvey Kellogg gained a reputation both as a nutritionist and a sexual adviser. The foods that Kellogg created (including the now-famous corn flakes) were designed to promote health and decrease interest in sex.

    Mr. Kellogg thought sex was the ultimate abomination and remained celibate even in marriage. Masturbation was the worst sin imaginable to him. He believed it led to leprosy, tuberculosis, heart disease, epilepsy, dimness of vision, insanity, idiocy, and death. He also preached that masturbation led to bashfulness in some people, unnatural boldness in others, a fondness for spicy foods, round shoulders, and acne. !

    …attacked by six black teenaged girls.
    …a group of black kids around 12 years old.

    I wonder how much of their gratuitous violence is partly due to age ( as well as several other easily perceived reasons none of which seem to have much to do directly with skin pigmentation).

    1) asians are the same size or smaller, and are seldom physically violent or even threatening
    2) asians are naturally entrepeneurial and rarely suck off the government tit
    3) asians keep a low profile and avoid getting into politics or media industries
    4) asians respect the host culture and strive to avoid conflict and fit in
    5) asians usually have good family structure with much lower divorce and crime rates
    6) asians in general respect elders in their own communities and the host society
    7) asians in general are polite and friendly, don’t indulge in gratuitous staredowns, and non-confrontational
    8) asians value education and usually major in various hard science degrees…not softie crap like art history, gender equity, sociology, poly sci, various ethnic studies, psych, etc.
    The only real negative have heard is from white males married to asian females…they report that in asian societies, the women handle the money. This sounds dangerous. Allow a white american female to handle your money…and you can be 99% sure that soon you won’t have any.

    So it takes the whites a while to catch up. Considering what whites did to families, it’s no wonder the “blacks” got a head start. While we’re on the subject of fathers, what do you think would happen when white slavers “bred” with their slaves, then used them for more fun and profit? I wouldn’t doubt stuff like that happened, given the depraved history of pretty much every race, and that includes slave owners in particular.

    Also, are you aware that whites actively sought to break up or even exterminate the family in order to replace it with government? Some of the advocates of that were hideously, wretchedly grotesque in their “reasoning.”

    “But even if housework disappears, you may argue, there are still the children to look after. But here too, the workers’ state will come to replace the family, society will gradually take upon itself all the tasks that before the revolution fell to the individual parents. Even before the revolution, the instruction of the child had ceased to be the duty of the parents.

    “Oversized” Penile Length In The Black People; Myth Or Reality
    JC Orakwe, GU Ebuh


    Objective: Amongst the Caucasians and some non-Black races, there is the popular belief that the black people generally have longer penile sizes. Even the Blacks themselves tend to believe so. This study was carried out to test the veracity of this ascription of “oversized” penile length to people of the Black (Negro) race.
    Design: A prospective and comparative study
    Setting: The Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital, Nnewi, Nigeria.
    Subjects and Method: Full-stretch flaccid penile lengths, and flaccid penile lengths, were measured in 115 adult men of the Black race in Nigeria. The results were compared with reported similar main studies on people of other races, which were accessible to the authors. These studies were done in Italy, Greece, Korea, Britain, and the United States of America.
    Result: The mean full-stretch penile length of the Nigerian Blacks was 13.37cm and the mean flaccid length was 9.36cm. Similar studies reported full-stretch penile lengths of 12.50cm in Italians, 12.18cm in Greeks, 9.6cm in Koreans, 13cm in British Caucasians, and 12.45cm in the American Caucasians. The penile length for Nigerian Blacks was longer than those of the other races, but the differences were only statistically different in comparison with the Koreans.
    Conclusion: There is the possibility of racial differences in penile sizes, but there is no convincing scientific background to support the ascription of bigger penile dimensions to people of the Black race

    “Statistics do not lie. In every aspect that makes us humans and civilized one Negroes are inferior to Indo Europeans and Eastern Asians.”

    But no race amounts to anything unless it reproduces itself.

    In the past, marriages were arranged. Women had no choice, and most men had no choice.
    And then, there was individual choice in marriage. But due to lack of communication and travel, most women went with local men.
    But in globalized world where women can pick men from the all over the world, it is women who choose which is the ‘superior’ race because she will give birth to more life.

    An Asian or Jewish or white guy can be a smart geek and superior with calculators, but if women say NO to him, his genes will be lost.

    The world is facing a blackening because black Africa produces so many people, and these guys are moving to all corners of the world.
    Also, women all over the world are into rap culture, black sports culture, and jungle fever. Look at the Japanese olympian in track. His mother is Japanese and had a kid with a Jamaican man. She rejected her own kind in her own nation and flew all the way to Jamaica cuz she had to have negro dong. If even Japan is going this way, imagine the fate of EU where MILLIONS of negroes from africa are pouring in yr after yr. On top of that, PC instructs all white kids that it is wrong to preserve whiteness and whites MUST mix with other races. Well, if white girls must mix, whom will they mix with? They are all into rap and jungle fever culture. Linh Dinh says even Germany is black-crazy with music and posters. White folks see Islam as main threat to their survival, but it is really Whore Culture. Once women are whorized and encouraged to choose mates based on animalism, Negro men will be seen as superior and will spread his seed the most… which is what is happening all over.

    So, the world is gonna be blackened cuz black guys will move to all corners of the world and since women of all races will have been whore-fied and hip-hopped into Kim -Kardashianism.

    Now, one might say such trashiness is inferior. From an intellectual and cultural viewpoint, yes. But humans are, at the root, animals, and animal lust and drives measure superiority in terms of immediate gratification and excitement.

    The civilized higher side of man values Mona Lisa above Rap music and sports. But the baser animal side of man/woman values raw thrills and pleasures as superior to everything.

    Both animalism and PC favor blacks as superior(on the animalist level). Animalism tells women all over the world to go with raw sexuality, and PC tells men all over the world that it is ‘racist’ for them to try to preserve their own nation and race from the Negro onslaught. This is why there is this Cuck thing in the West. White women go with mandingo and white guy does his best to convince himself that he should watch his defeat with happiness than with alarm.

    Just think… Africa is where women have 6 to 7 kids each. And all those men are coming to Europe on boats. And EU is defenseless cuz of PC virus. And once EU is taken over by blacks, blacks will head to Asia, Arabia, and Latin America. And all those hip-hopped ho’s will have black kids.
    Japan is so distant from Africa, but its Miss Japan has a black father, and its Olympic runners are the result of Japanese women rejecting inferior Japanese men and having kids with Negroes. As Japanese birthrate is so low and as Japanese elites have been globalized and PC-ized into worshiping diversity and homomania, Japan will go the same lame way. Already in Yokohama, there are tons of Japanese women who only go with black men and want to have black kids. And Japanese men are so demoralized by globo-sexuality that many of them have given up sex altogether and play videogames.

    Of course, afro americans are the most racist people in the nation, almost bar none. This is self initiated by them, not by the rest of us, because most of us just want to struggle with our own daily lives (and are not interested in oppressing anyone). The afro american community has chosen to be racist against others; this path was not chosen for them (with the exception of much leftist manipulation). It has been fostered so much by malevolent leftist and guilt ridden libs, that it is not going away anytime soon (if ever, during most of our lifetimes).

    This is a social Frankenstein monster that is ready to run amok, and our further economic decline may be the spark that sets the massive social unrest off. Is there any preventing of this social trend line? I think not. The academia/MSM/politicians have conditioned the afro american community that the only acceptable response to their irrational demands is to pander, praise, and provide more giveaways. As our economy continues to contract, with govt eventually having difficulty in providing even basic services, this situation will become untenable. Then we will all suffer the consequences for what the new left maliciously helped to create (with the unwitting assistance of naive liberal enablers).

    Yes afro americans are complete racist, but its the new left who directed this animosity in order to try to fulfill their leftist agendas. Leftist want their socialist utopia, no matter how many times history has demonstrated that it does not work. However, other nations’ failed socialist systems never had a portion of its citizens, whose only function is to have a parasitical relationship with the larger society, financed completely by government transfers. Other socialist nations required citizen contribution, but this is not a requirement for afro americans by the new left socialist fantasy. No society can handle the financial strain of a significant percentage of unproductive people living off the host society indefinitely – – something will give economically.

    If our national decline continues, I hope the leftist suffer the worst of it.
    [on a side note: leftist and libs believe that they are exempt from the afro american anti white animosity that they have helped to create; that somehow if there is a massive R war that afro american aggressors will recognize them as the “good” white people. What they do not understand is that hatred does not make distinctions; so the leftist will probably be destroyed by their own Frankenstein monster – – no loss there – – sorry I feel that way, but I do].

The moral is that the violent kiddies are products of the societies they are brought up in and the blame should be shared.

    What to do about it is way beyond my pay grade.

    Adam Smith (note the date) shows more understanding of the problem than many of our present day bigots.

    “The female slaves will therefore always live in a state of prostitution, which we see is the case in the West Indian colonies; and this alone may shew how destructive it is to population, as a state of prostitution is always detrimental to population. Many other things render their cohabitation precarious. The duration of it does not depend on themselves but on their master. If he thinks that they do not labour so well together, he may send to different parts of his farm, or he | may sell either of them at his pleasure.

    At least you have half the truth here.

    Most white HBDers here at UNZ will only look at what is favorable to whites as gospel.

    And whenever HBD tells them something they don’t like to hear, like blacks have the biggest cocks, they whine about it or make stuff up.

    Whites can’t have it both ways. HBD is a hard science, or HBD is a social construct. But the brothers are definately packing more meat than the white posters here are. Sorry man!

    The problem is not slavery but a false misunderstanding of slavery.

    Slavery actually ennobled the black experience.
    Read UP FROM SLAVERY by Booker T. Washington, and it filled the black narrative with themes of tragedy, perseverance, and struggle.
    It provided blacks with lots of moral capital and historical richness.

    Blacks could have chosen a rich understanding of this narrative… or a shallow exploitation for short-term gain.

    Same with Chinese. They gained a great moral narrative from 19th century to WWII. So much suffering and tragedy. But what did Mao do? He went for cheap exploitation of this memory to push through one nutty scheme after another. Such misuse of memory is closer to amnesia or cartoon version of history. So much was wasted under Mao’s stupidity.

    And that’s what happened with blacks. Their slavery narrative and struggle for justice had great moral gravitas. And they seemed to be moving in the right direction with this narrative.
    But in the 60s, they turned into fuel for cartoon black rage and yelling ‘honkey’ 24/7 and trash culture.

    Blacks talk of legacy of slavery, but if they remembered and understood it better, they would be acting more sober and sane. But they turned into a cartoon amnesia lunacy of ‘whitey, where be my breakfast, where be my lunch, where be my dinner?’

    According to this Negro cartoon vision of history, Greeks stole everything from black Egyptians, and blacks produced all the wealth in America that was taken by whitey who never done nothing but sit around and sip lemonade.

    Blacks went from gaining recognition for their contribution to America(and being respected) to acting crazy & demanding reparations or freebies for what their ancestors had done 100s of yrs ago.

    There was a time when blacks were willing to serve and die in the military to show that he was just as patriotic and good as white man.
    Now, they just be howling like morons who never done opened up a book.

    There are some nuggets of truth in what you say. And I think it’s appropriate to add that playing the victim card has appeared to work for some (special) groups. Since being “black” can get one some sympathy and lots of “freebies,” lots of useless whites adopt the “culture” hoping for some of the pickings as well it seems. That concept also explains to me why so many people with nary a trace of “black” in ’em consider themselves black.

    However, being a cracker myself, I have a feel for how a lot of crackers think, and the truth is that it ain’t purdy. A lot of them who’ve never been hurt by a black still resent and loathe them and would never give a black person an even break, ever. They will always be quick to find fault and are quick to jump on any example of undesirable behavior as being representative of the whole. It seems that most people want to feel special and superior and it seems that most groups will find any reason, no matter how baseless,to look through their noses at others. Hence we have the despised goyim, the despised, Hun, Spick, wop, wetback, etc., etc., etc. The guys who claim high “IQs” feel superior to us morons, imbeciles and idiots, and never let us forget it.

    As for your scenario about how blacks can rise above it all, I don’t think its as easy as it’s portrayed. I know that discipline, perseverance, a sense of personal responsibility and hard work plus a bit of luck and some talent will get a person somewhere, but there are a lot more factors involved and a lot of poor folk just don’t have the background for it, so will never “get it,” double meaning intended.

    It’s a curious thing that people will find just about any excuse to loathe the other, and I think that explains a lot of what goes on here.

    Blacks went from gaining recognition for their contribution to America(and being respected) to acting crazy & demanding reparations or freebies for what their ancestors had done 100s of yrs ago.

    Not only is the demand for freebies human nature, but there are very prominent groups who’ve done well for themselves with such demands, and it seems “natural” that other groups would try the same game.

    But in the 60s, they turned into fuel for cartoon black rage and yelling ‘honkey’ 24/7 and trash culture.

    That sounds as if it has some merit. It would be interesting to hear why that would be.

    Blacks could have chosen a rich understanding of this narrative… or a shallow exploitation for short-term gain.

    That is so true and I believe it even has a name among the “learned,” i.e., “time preference” and it never ceases to amaze me how most people seem to opt for the short term gain most of the time. Smokers, drinkers and gamblers come to mind. Now, not only can a person see why that happens, and how it develops, but it’s easy to see how politicians and other forms of money grubbers seem to take immense pleasure in exploiting that tendency. To me it seems an adaptation to particular circumstances, but I have no real answer for it.

    I apologize to all for this long winded and probably incoherent and rambling diatribe…! (But hey, I never claimed to be either a thinker or a writer or infallible, and it wars written of de cuff so to speak, so the theories are no doubt full of holes. )

    It’s well known that welfare payments have made fathers at home worse than superfluous; they’ve become a liability.

    Excellent point! The financial incentive is in not having a stable nuclear family. I have known Black imams make this very point. They encouraged the men in the mosque to find honest work did not consider welfare to be a positive thing. In fact, they considered it to be a deliberate policy to destroy the Black family. In fact, they made an analogy between this method of separating out the men from the women and leaving the women to fend for themselves:

    Only to some – trust me, Pakistanis, Bengalis and Indians probably wouldn’t mind swinging another wife if they could pull it off – not usually culturally accepted. It’s not an optimal scenario, but nobody I know sees these guys as failures. And if you mean failure of the system, well, people have to go about and live their lives until things get fixed.

    It is the acceptance of the racist premise that black men are only good for being baby daddies.

    Actually, this is the rise of the alpha male within those communities – survival of the fittest. They are solid male figures and take care of their wives and kids – and raise them well. Baby daddies are the miserable males that get a bunch of women pregnant and don’t man up to take care of them or their kids. I have read that in Britain, the ratio of White converts is 3/4 female – you might have White Muslims take up polygamy too given those circumstances. Racism gets no traction from me.

    Black educated and financially secure people don’t seem to face impossible odds at family formation.

    Exactly, there is a dearth of Black males fitting this profile and who want to settle down to have families thus these guys are prime catches. Please note, it is beyond being educated and financially secure – one must have the desire to get married also and what that entails – cutting out the nonsense:
    “Oh you a Muslim now, no more dope games
    I just got the phone call, heard you got bail
    Wanna go to the Mosque, no time for females
    Losin’ touch with my homie, he’s a changed man

    Congratulations on the weddin’, I hope your wife know

    Obviously, Africans znever should have been brought here, enslaved, and abused — and then never should have been allowed to leech off of and abuse, insult, mock, intimidate, mug, rape, torture, and murder the rest of us as they have for decades now.

    A tiny percentage of whites benefitted from slavery during slavery, likely much fewer than one percent. And a large percentage of white European descended people in America had no ancestors come to America until after slavery was abolished, even after Jim Crow was abolished.

    Yet now almost all of us are paying a heavy price at the hands of Africans in America: a price in innocent lives, in educational environment for our children, in societal trust, in peace and quiet, in cleanliness, in good order, and in public health.

    I think the threats are real in some areas but overblown generally. If the underclasses had some real options, things would likely change for the better. It’s way too easy to blame them alone. As I noted above, while I’m no expert on the history of slavery or abolition, I have no doubt that far sighted anti-slavery people could have, and probably did, predict our present predicament. The fact that many of us are suffering from the effects of chattel slavery is an indication of the utter evil that it was. It was nothing short of depraved and unfortunately innocents once again are forced to pay the price.

    I don’t pretend to know what the answer is, but I sure know it doesn’t lie in condemning whole races of people. Nothing will ever have a hope of healing if people keep pointing fingers at one another and hating each other because of the always present relative handful of antisocial rejects extant at any one time.

    Put simply, I think the change boils down to weakness and cowardice. The Black Power movement copped out on the challenges that remained facing blacks after the Civil Rights movement and engaged in the politics of extortion for short-term advantage rather than the whole complexity of issues, both internal and external, impeding the betterment of blacks. Blaming whitey for everything was easier and more instantly gratifying than self-improvement. Politicians like Mayor Coleman Young of Detroit found it politically advantageous to go along with that trend. Failure and pathology became conflated with black authenticity. “Systemic racism” in education provided a ready-made excuse for black underperformance in education. Daniel Patrick Moynihan became persona non grata for speaking the truth about dysfunction among blacks. The only real power the Black Power movement had was based on plucking the white desire for virtue signalling, which in itself was a cowardly approach when faced with things that were going horribly wrong among blacks. That white virtue signalling was institutionalized with the Kerner Commission report, which pretty much negated the gains in race relations that had been made during the Civil Rights era.

    Politicians like Mayor Coleman Young of Detroit found it politically advantageous to go along with that trend.

    I’m no expert on the subject, but I’d be willing to bet that “politicians” did more than go along with the trend, but no doubt fueled it whenever they could.

    For me, the bottom line is that there are many actors and factors in dysfunctional behavior and your comments seems to support that view. The usual suspects certainly know how to exploit a given situation to their short term advantage, the future be damned. It seems to me that chattel slavery itself developed as a result of that mindset, and that wage and tax slavery continue for that reason (and others) as well.

    Again, I have no answer, if there is one, but I do have a bead on what doesn’t work, and articles like the present one don’t seem to help much if at all. It certainly doesn’t seem to me that bawling about the symptom (such as highlighting the inexcusable behavior of feral “black” kids) is a way of dealing with the disease.

    I would go a step further and say that no truly religious person should support coercive government in any way, including accepting welfare because accepting it constitutes a demand for government services, thus encouraging the growth of the leviathin.

    Furthermore, accepting welfare amounts to accepting stolen property surrendered under compulsion and that leads to a host of attendant evils. No truly religious person would think twice about engaging in that sort of behavior, I’d think.

    Some pertinent observations from James Howard Kunstler:

    For the moment, while the racial grievances of 2014 have chilled on the polar vortex, and no unarmed black teens have been shot by cops for a couple of weeks, it might be a good time to continue that honest discussion about race that the media nabobs — such as Charles Blow and Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times and Don Lemon of CNN — demand when some incendiary event goes down and tensions across the country become unbearable. That demand, of course, is a political booby-trap because any discussion not founded on the presumption of white malice is instantly deemed inadmissible and “racist” — which is just cheap demagogic despotism designed to shut down the very discussion they asked for. So that is exactly what I expect in response to this essay.

    I bring these matters up because it seems to me that the long, arduous, costly battle for “civil rights” which began in my childhood a half century ago is beginning to look like a lost cause. The movies and TV are full of black / white buddy stories, and commercial images of a shared American experience as if there really was a common culture that blacks and whites felt an equal investment in. These stories and images are largely wishful, though I believe the dream of a common culture that would nurture all types of people in America stood at the heart of civil rights idealism of the sort represented by Martin Luther King and the white public figures who marched in solidarity with him.

    Something went terribly wrong in the early going, and I don’t think there has ever been an honest discussion about it by American social thought leaders of any race, though I have raised the point more than once in passing. It was the paradoxical rise of black separatist politics at the exact historical moment of civil rights triumph when the two landmark civil rights bills were passed: the Public Accommodations Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

    Black separatism had been around since the late 19th century as a counterpoint to the earlier post-slavery idea represented by Booker T. Washington, which proposed that black earnestness would eventually be recognized by white America and rewarded, at least with economic participation. That idea was opposed by less patient, younger figures such as W.E.B Du Bois and Marcus Garvey who promoted what was then called “Pan-Africanism.” But the debate was superseded by the crises of the Great Depression and Second World War. By the early 1960s, black separatism had revived, personified first by Malcolm X (assassinated by rival Black Muslims, 1965), and the disillusioned former Freedom Rider Stokely Carmichael, who coined the slogan “black power,” and then by scores of public players and followers.

    What I think happened is that the sudden prospect of true legal equality produced deep anxiety across black America, so that opting out provided a comfortable alternative. I saw it play out at my college in 1970 when the “militant” black students organization demanded a separate black student union. In the face of the civil rights acts passed only a few years earlier, this should have been regarded as a sort of outrage, but pusillanimous college administrators caved in and bought a house for that purpose. And of course the same thing happened all over the country, so that a new form of separate-but-equal was reestablished by popular demand.

    That blunder by academic leaders set a tragic tone for the forty years that followed. To rationalize the new separate-but-equal ethos, these people of liberal good intentions constructed an elaborate ideology of “multiculturalism” and “diversity” that had the tragic unintended consequence of obliterating the foundational idea of a common culture that had animated the struggle Dr. King gave his life to, as well the basic notion of what it meant to be an American.

    A common culture did exist in America before the 1960s, at least in terms of manners, standards of decent behavior, and even language. It was what allowed people of good will in the 20th century to believe in “one nation indivisible.” Hence, the question America needs to ask itself: do we have enough moral focus to revive the idea that a common culture actually matters? If not, expect unending strife.

    More from Kunstler:

    True, there are various dialects of English among us, but it must be obvious that they have different merits and disadvantages. There is such a thing as standard grammatical English. It evolves over generations, for sure, but it shows a certain conservative stability, like the rule of law. It tends to be spoken by educated people and by people in authority. This implies people in power, of course, people who run things, but also people at large in the professions (medicine, engineering, etc.) and the arenas of business and government. Standard grammatical English tends to be higher status because competence in it tends to confer the benefits of higher living standards.

    It also must be self-evident that there is such a thing as a black English dialect in America. With perhaps a few lingering regional differences, it is remarkably uniform from Miami, Florida, to Rochester, New York, to Fresno, California. It prevails among the so-called black underclass, the cohort that continues to struggle economically. Despite its verve and inventiveness, this black dialect tends to confer low status and lower standards of living on those who speak it. In popular mythology and culture, it is associated with violent criminality and other anti-social behaviors. If you don’t believe this, turn on HBO sometime.

    I argue that black people who seek to succeed socially and economically would benefit from learning to speak standard grammatical English, not solely because it is associated with higher status and living standards, but because proficiency with grammar, tenses, and a rich vocabulary helps people think better. After all, if you employ only the present tense in all your doings and dealings, how would you truly understand the difference between now, tomorrow, and yesterday? I submit that it becomes problematical. You may not be able to show up on time, among other things.

    I cannot speak for Muslims or any other particular religious group, but I am wholeheartedly in favor of self reliance such as you’re describing.

    It’s pretty easy to see how in that case, government would view self reliant groups as an enemy and in typical fashion seek to demonize and exterminate them. The extermination doesn’t have to be as overt an attack on all religions as took place under Lenin and Stalin, either. Government provided welfare is pernicious in a subtle way because it undermines independence under the guise of altruism, and doesn’t rely on direct aggression which would tend to frighten people away from supporting the programs.

    Welfare payments, being essentially the reception of stolen goods, like corporate bailouts and foreign “aid” all undermine moral accountability and lead to the cesspools of degeneration that we’re living today. Thus, much of the violent behavior we’re subject to is one result of people outsourcing their altruism to agents of the state.

    Bingo! This is extremely important. Charity is not charity if it is coerced. Charity is an act of virtue that must come from a personal intention*.

    To my knowledge, the Amish/Mennonites (with whom the Muslim community has a great working relationship – natural, humanely raised, excellent tasting meat) are the only ones “off the grid” when it comes to things like social security:

    I think LD raises a very important point that no discussion of race relations can be considered honest without an airing of the culture of violence, crime, and racism that has spread like a cancer among blacks. If non-blacks are going to be obligated to step out of their comfort zone in such a discussion, so are blacks. It’s not just about black and white; relations between blacks and Asians (both east and south Asian) and Hispanics are at rock bottom largely because of crime, violence, and racism from blacks. Those situations show the ludicrousness of raising “white privilege” as a response to black dysfunction, violence, and racism. An Asian shopkeeper who keeps a watchful eye on blacks in their business is responding to a statistically-supported risk factor for their business and personal well-being, not practicing racism.

    Nothing will change by choice, in this nation, in regards to our race relations with afro americans. Why? Well besides many Americans today prefer to believe in feel good liberal ideas, living in the world of make believe, and accepting the new left propaganda, we also as a nation are distracted by many things of lesser consequence. In order to change afro americans from the hostile parasites, that the New Left created, into productive citizens, we need a unifying vision of shared values in this nation. Unfortunately that will not happen because the rest of us cannot not even agree on what our true problems are.

    This nation has incorporated itself into competing groups for the biggest portion of the giveaway pie. The only organization the promotes social cohesion of shared values is the Church on Sundays. There you will see Europeans, Asians, Malays, Arabs, converted Jews, Hispanics, Indians, Amerindians, and Negroes, etc, sharing the same agenda/outlook while worshipping in a unified manner. Unfortunately this does not extend much beyond the worship service; but this is a good model on how diverse groups can have a shared productive agenda. But because of the New Left, it is almost impossible to incorporate a shared value system in this country.

    So now what? We have an increasingly hostile afro american community who, while our economy is slowly collapsing, is making more demands on the rest of us. This places enormous financial burdens in govt transfers that is simply not sustainable in the long term. Even if we attempted to change their hearts and minds, the New Left will easily convince them that we are pursuing a racist agenda of oppression. Thus I do not see a reconciliation with afro americans realistically possible within the next generation (and maybe not even this century).

    Our nation will be in prolonged intermittent periods of worsening economic recessions and depressions (negative growth), and there will be more than a few states that will resemble Greece, Argentina, Venezuela, or Zimbabwe. Eventually in many areas of the nation, austerity conditions will be the norm. And afro americans will not be able to comprehend living on less entitlements, especially when the academia/MSM/political complex constantly brain washed them that they deserve more & more without end.

    Figure out the rest for yourself, but we will not reverse this trend because a) we cannot agree, and b) we do not have the political will to do so anyway, and c) our economy may have been too damaged already to comfortably support our current carrying capacity. So nothing will change, and unfortunately we are living in a period of history that this will have to self correct, and burn itself out (after a lot of painful decline); and maybe then things will finally change. Pray that I am wrong.

    Historical racism

    “Historical racism” is a New Left exaggeration. Everyone suffers some form of prejudice from the haters of the world, this is not exclusive to the experiences of afro americans (they just complain about it more). Plus in the exact opposite of being on the receiving end of racism, Afros are praised and pandered to ad nauseam, for the last fifty years, by the academia/media/political complex.

    On top of that the New Left has recklessly promoted racial hatreds in afro americans towards the rest of society. What is the results of all this reckless leftist meddling: an unproductive class that commits more violence against their fellow citizens than any other group (including terrorism). And while this is happening the means to pay for all the govt transfers to afro american entitlements is slowly bankrupting this nation.

    The destruction of the afro american community is the fault of the New Left instigators themselves, who are trying to formulate the afro american lumpen (who are only interested in their own immediate gratification and leftist inspired hatreds) into their very own marxist revolutionary army. All this for an idea that has failed everywhere it was tried (Marxism). To me, what the New Left has done is equivalent to war crimes, and if the nation ever breaks down to without a rule of law situation, they should be dealt with, harshly. Then with the elimination of the New Left, maybe we can repair our broken race relations based on mutual respect and responsibility (not false praise & pandering).

    Chinese were treated very badly in America at one time. But they overcame that and did pretty well later.

    It’s true we cannot discount history, but neither should we discount biology.

    If white people had enslaved Chinese instead of blacks, things would have worked out differently because Chinese are physically smaller/weaker than whites(therefore no threat to whites) and the equal of whites in intelligence.

    If ‘historical racism’ took away black pride, and that accounts for their failure in many areas, then how come blacks do well in sports? It is because biology favors them in sports.

    Biology can be suppressed, but in a free society, biology comes to the fore.
    In a repressive society that forces all Jews to live in ghettos, there won’t be Jewish genius doing great things. But if you allow freedom, Jews will succeed more than gentiles.
    In a discriminatory society that forces blacks to live in their own areas, there won’t be black athletics dominating sports(reserved only for whites). But if you allow freedom, blacks will dominate in sports.

    If biology doesn’t matter, then how come China and India with combined population of 2.4 billion people cannot beat Jamaica with a population of just a few millions?

    The recent rise of China owes a lot to biology. China didn’t make progress for 100s of yrs because of repressive political system. And then there was the hellishness of early 20th century with wars and strife. And then, there was communism that suppressed individual freedom, and etc.
    So, it is true that politics and culture can hold a people back.
    But when Chinese were allowed to be socially and economically free(if not politically free) beginning in the 80s, there was rapid rise in economy and achievement. Why? It was because the average IQ of China is 100, a higher average than in other parts of the world apart from the West.

    There is much obfuscation with mixing competing ideas of the Right (such as Traditionalist, Libertarians, Anarcho capitalist, Corporatist, supremacist, and Neocons). The same with the Leftist where the New Left is not exactly in sync with Liberals. So I shall focus on the New Left and their opinions of successful utopian visions:

    a) The Soviet system was a disaster, and just because todays Russia is not much of an improvement does not make the old Soviet system a success.
    b) Mao has caused a mass starvation among his own people with the loss of approx 30 million souls.
    c) Venezuela has massive food shortages and its urban areas are sinking into chaotic conditions.
    d) Cambodia had the worst case of mass genocide per capita in human history.
    e) Every major city that was under leftist Democrat control over the last few decades is an economic and social mess;
    f) Post war Greece and Italy both constantly flirted with Communism and are both on the economic decline.
    g) When viewing a satellite photo of nighttime North Korea as compared to South Korea, the contrast is remarkable.

    …I can go on but I do not want to belabor the point.

    I am wondering what was the successes that the New Left actually claim their ideas produced, that can be demonstrated by actual empirical reality? Repeating a failed idea does not produce different successful results. The leftist ideas work well in an advertisement like presentation, supported by clever oral arguments; but always seem to fail when tested by reality.

    Further, at least many Liberals are just naive & misguided, unlike the New Left who are resentful creatures who are openly hostile towards a society that supports them. The New Left is not trying to make the world a better place like a naive misguided liberal, they are trying to bring down society in order to satisfy resentful desires. The only people that I find almost as contemptible are the fashionable liberals, who are only liberal because they want to be in style; they are next to useless because they have no real core values (they are merely followers).

    The USSR was definitely a huge success: the second strongest economy and military force in the world. And China, which is the strongest economy in the world these days, even more so, as it proved to be more flexible.

    And the nostalgia for the communist system (ostalgie, as they call nostalgia for the GDR in Germany), is not a consequence of the current system being a mess in traditional terms – in most former Soviet republics (not to mention Germany) people today live better, in the material sense, than before – but because it satisfied the human need for cooperation, as opposed to individualist competition…

    Now, you say that “they inevitably crash and burn”. Okay. But everything crashes and burns eventually. Every new idea, every new development is an experiment, an evolutionary attempt, that is destined to mutate, one way or another.

    I am sorry but I disagree with your assessments. Many peopled enamored with leftist ideas tend to believe in utopias that never actually existed. You probably mean well, but you are generally mistaken.

    Many Eastern European immigrants (at least in the Bos Wash city that I am from) do not have very fond memories of Communism. Instead they have memories of scarcity and tyranny, where the midnight knock on the door, and the neighbor disappearing forever, was a real fear. Now you may say that this is anecdotal, but remember that these people lived 8700 man hours a year of life experience inside these nations. Thus, the preponderance of evidence of their witness, by far exceeds what any leftist academic/journalist has in the way of personal experience about the subject. It is actually the academic/journalist who are guilty of presenting anecdotal information, because they are always attempting to make reality conform to their own idealogical opinions (instead of just reporting the facts as they actually occurred).

    If a nation needs to control its populace in order to have utopia, then its really not utopia. Communism (like anarcho capitalism) can exist in a tribal setting where its voluntary and very small. But once you have a population beyond Dunbar’s number, it either needs to be tyrannical, or it fails. What you are focussing on is Communism’s limited successes, while ignoring the failures, and abuses, which completely tips the scales against it.

    No one is saying that the American system is perfect, its just better than the alternatives. The New Left mantra of America has problems, so therefore we should exchange it for something worse, like Communism, is not very rational. If American system was so bad then illegal immigration would probably never exist. Remember that the Berlin Wall was built to keep the East Germans in.

  224. Immigrants is not a representative selection in so many ways… Not to mention that the stories about “the midnight knock on the door” (after ~1953) are obvious lies; they probably tell you what they think you want to hear.

    I don’t know what the ‘New Left’ is, but I’m curious about your idea of the left dealing in utopias.

    You appear to be a proponent of the western-style ‘liberal democracy’. Three hundred years ago this very idea would be considered radical and utopian, and a typical mainstream monarchist would’ve been rejecting your ‘liberal democracy’ idea in the same condescending way, telling you that the monarchist system, while imperfect, is obviously better than the alternatives; that you’re a gullible dreamer, and troublemaker.

    Now, take syndicalism, for example: the radical leftist idea that the workers should own and control their workplaces. Is it utopian? Meanwhile, several northern-European countries now have laws mandating union representatives to be included, as equal members, into the boards of directors. Life goes on, social systems evolve (or, at times, revolutionize); what seemed impossible a few decades ago becomes commonplace…

To fight against (white-ism) racism, we need: Push hordes of foreigners to colonized the lands of ex colonialist metropolis and other white-guilt areas, lower fertility rates, multiculturalism (non whiteism), mixing race and in the end the elimination of white people.

    The initial “leftist idea” of racism while a very bad thing is just the right to think and to do.

    The development is clear dubious and wrong.

    First of all just what are “Rightest” ideas other than concepts which leftists arbitrarily define as “Rightist”, such as “Capitalism”, which is , from a scientific standpoint a “Non-idea”.

    Secondly how about the “Leftist” ideas now in play in Venezuela, or in the old UdSSR, or in Cuba where two despotic brothers has been acting as kings for the last fifty-plus years while the cuban people cannnot even find a fucking toothbrush in their empty stores.

    I know very well what is happening in Venezuela and in Cuba, i know very well that ”new left” is the lamb of skin of this asshole wolfes. I have a leftoid brother, insuperably ignorant, stupid, narcisistic and hypocrite.

    New left appropriate itself most of ”western civilization” faults to create their chess strategy of political hegemony. The political scenario IS a real world chess game. For example, occupy the key-strategic positions (political, religious and academic leadership) and slowly gaining positions, instead kill the key-pieces, cook them.

  237. joef says:

    Too many ad hominem attacks here. What the New Left are confused about is that voting for liberal political candidates is actually against the rational self interest of the average American. The New Left wants to be soft on violent crime, increases taxes, increase fines, fees, and forfeitures, criminalize innocuous acts (eg politically correct hate crime laws), while ignoring 93 million discouraged workers, and then on top of that: constantly accuse them of being racist. Most people do not think about the issues while struggling with their daily lives; but they do eventually notice when they are getting screwed.

    The unfortunate thing when white flight refugees moved from the inner city neighborhoods to the suburbs, is now their own children are completely ignorant what they escaped from. Also when they escaped to the suburbs they did not realize that the parasitical relationship, that the urban freeloaders have with productive citizens, would not end. This nation is heading towards national bankruptcy, and when the resultant scarcity hits (like other nations before us), these same soft liberals, who cannot even handle an election, will start to die off. Then maybe the productive people can rebuild from the broken pieces of what remains (and we did not ask for this, this was forced upon us by the leftist themselves).
    The only thing the New Left is good at is producing failure, and then blaming others for it.

    On a side note, it is laughable that some leftist are now encouraging revolution. How do they hope to accomplish that? Most of them cannot fight their way our of a wet paper bag, are anti police, never served in the military, and they do not believe in owning guns. So who do you think would win in that exchange. [I know some leftist believe that they will dupe the radical afro american urban ghetto dweller to do their fighting for them. But what they do not understand is that, with the exception of the ones running the corner & his enforcers, most afro americans like an easy win where they have some sort of unfair advantage over their victim. They generally do not like to work to hard for victory & do not engage when the odds are even. In addition most are notoriously unreliable and are completely absorbed by immediate gratification].

    Old left via Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels= sovietic socialism style. Proletariat revolution against the bourgeoisie to take the power.

    example: ”russian” revolution, ”chinese” revolution.

    New Left via Antonio Gramsci = create a political hegemony over cultural wars/cultural domination.

    If there’s any reasonable meaning of ‘left’, these days it can only pertain to economics, the class struggle. I don’t think Gramsci would disagree with that. And I don’t see any sign of any ‘New Left’ advocating class struggle anywhere. In fact, class struggle is more or less a taboo subject. Therefore I conclude that the ‘New Left’ is bs. A distraction, diversion.

    American election is the genuine manifestation of the class/race struggles, specially and fundamentally to the white americans, the fundamental target.

    Every cultural micro-trends is the New Left in the command.

    – gender issues
    -racial issues
    – multiculturalism


    Obvious it’s not bs.

    Do you already watch this movie ”Storm of Century”*

    A perfect metaphor to the ”modern” West.

    We have a story of the trivial or parochial little american city. Their residents are ”normals”, BUT many them (if not most of them) have some hidden crime to the community. So the ”worst storm of the century” start and the Devil, personally, appear there to kill all of those who commited some moral crime. The Devil disturbed the apparent ”normalcy” of this city, ”he” wants to do justice and to show the city residents that they are not those perfect beings in behavior, as they are thinking.

    The little city can be understood as the ”western civilization”. The hidden crimes**

    – slavery/”colonization’
    – hate, persecution against sexual, psychological or cultural minorities
    – misogyny
    – environmental destruction
    – hate or despise against non-human animals

    The residents of the little city can be understood as ”original western populations or whites”.

    The Devil*

    New leftist gentiles*

    The difference is that the Devil in the movie only want to kill the hidden criminals while the ‘Devil’ here, in the real world, want to destroy the West.

    My point is that this ‘New Left’ (if I understand correctly what it is) is all about a whole bunch of ‘identities’ (many of which you listed): race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, even your weight (the oppressed fat people!) – but the class identity is conspicuously missing

    And yet, the class identity is the only thing that matters to the Left.

    Therefore, I conclude that the purpose of this fake ‘Left’ is to split the working class into numerous waring segments: women against men, blacks against whites, and so on. Note how they always emphasize now that it was white working class that voted for Trump, as if non-white working class has different interests…

    Yes, exactly.

    ORGANIZED minority against DISORGANIZED majority/people/”99%”.

    Unfortunately Leftism is a Troyan Horse to take the power ”forever” to the pseudo-progressist psychopaths, a kind of political hegemony. Destroy the old/conservative order to create a new and more totalitarian order, Cuba-style.

  248. Crime (whether reported to be black and brown in the present media stratagem) is always profiled while White Crime is rarely specifed to the same extent. The media never reported that a white man shot the white President (Reagan), or a white man shot MLK, or the white assassinated RFK or even JFK.

    This has been the pattern and practice for 50 years and more so why are we surpried while pretending otherwise! I am mildly amused at the distortive element of willful priviledge and the incredible lightness of non-being!

    What fantasy world do you live in.
    1.We all know who shot RFK, JFK, and MLK.
    2. The Media does nothing but praise and pander to afro americans, ad nauseam
    3.Most Browns are productive people who do not commit crime anywhere near the rate of afro americans; so they should not be lumped in with them.
    4.Afro americans kill more residents in this nation, year after year, than any other group (including terrorism)
    5. All this along with being the biggest financial burden this nation ever had to endure.
    6. And while irresponsibly living off the dole, incapable of self support, they bring nothing to offer except complaining.

    When will we stop pretending that afro americans are not our biggest problem in this country, and if most of the ungrateful ones went away back to Africa (Africans would not even want them), we would eliminate most of our social & economic problems with it. Sorry but thats the facts (I wish I was wrong about this, but I’m not). Can’t change reality (but radical afro americans can change themselves, if they choose to).

    Unfortunately I agree with you. The same happen in Brazil. Great part of social problems in Brazil have a single one root and this root is African, direct or indirectly. Yes I agree absolutely that average people and surprisingly many of the “$mart fraction ones” are usually mediocres, without a better word to describe them, but there is a huge difference between to be mediocre and to be problematic. There are plenty of “normal” people among afro descendents, it’s obvious, just the insane uber racists of other races to deny it. But you need to be illiberally insane to deny the disproportional, quasi-characteristic dysfunctionality among many afro descendents, read: Higher proportion of anti social personality among them, just like European gypsies. The problem is not the “color of skin” itself but the low functioning sociopathy, the “psychological breed” that is disproportionately found among afro descendents.

    In countries like Brazil and U.S. half of social problems are traditionally caused by


    And and and


    On avg or disproportionately speaking

    The second group have disproportionate ideological innovators who created sophisticated justifications or excuses for the bad behavior of people and specially those “of color”.

    But isn’t a overall pattern because we have for example countries like Guatemala with very few afro descendents and higher criminality rates at least by now caused by a confluence of bad trends, structural and social problems that increase the selective pressure for warrior men types.

    Its not like I enjoy being right on this. I would prefer to take the feel good option and pretend it does not exist, but I cannot honestly contradict my own experiences.

    Many Jews still have living memory (or a descendant of) the holocaust. This has placed PTSD type cultural influence on their own thinking. They believe that by always taking the minority side (right or wrong) they are preventing the next potential holocaust. Therefore, they will not ever stop meddling with race relations until the living memory of the holocaust recedes.

    The bad thing is that unwittingly they have empowered a bitter, hostile, and ill willed afro american attitude that is completely balkanizing this nation. And at this rate it does not appear to be able to be resolved peacefully, while it is slowly crashing our economy. Thus, the road to hell (for this country) is paved with good (liberal Jewish) intentions. This is supported by the narcissistic suburbanite who wants to be fashionably liberal, not caring that there are Whites, Browns, Asians, Blacks, and Jews, who are routinely victimized by afro american crime.

    All “good” intentions that have potential to go to the hell need to be co-adjetived with the word stupid. Real or literal good intentions are smarter too, or better, wise. No there such thing “good intentions only” , in the real world, if it hadn’t at least other adjective/characteristic working together.

    Just the latest in my city:

    Several injured by juvenile “flash mob” attack, Philly police say

    PHILADELPHIA — Six people, including an off-duty police detective and his wife, were injured after a “flash mob” attack by some among a crowd of juveniles in downtown Philadelphia, police said.

    Police said a large crowd of juveniles were at 16th and Walnut streets, a popular spot for dining and shopping, at about 6 p.m. Saturday when some people began randomly assaulting people on the street. News of the assault comes after several were arrested in October for similar assaults by mobs of juveniles near Temple University. A witness to that attack said he overheard police saying the kids were playing “the knockout game.”

    In Saturday’s attack, a 55-year-old off-duty police detective saw a 20-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman being assaulted and tried to arrest one of the offenders. He was punched from behind by several people, police said.

    The detective’s 53-year-old wife splashed water on the offenders to try to stop them from attacking her husband, and she was punched in the face, police said. All of the offenders then fled. The four victims were taken to a nearby hospital.

    Immediately afterward, there was another assault by several juveniles nearby, and two 16-year-old youths were arrested, police said.

    In all, six people were injured.

    The police detective had an orbital fracture to his right eye while the others had minor injuries.

    One man told WPVI-TV that he feared for his safety when the large group of teens appeared, and he saw other people running into nearby stores to escape.

    “It’s crazy out here,” said Dwight Magood. “I don’t know if they were trying to protest or ‘flash mobbing.’ But it’s not the right way to do it, whatever it was.”
