Chaimstream Media: That maverick McCain was a real hero.

Thinking American: How do you mean, mendacity personified?

Chaimstream Media: Well, uh, he crashed a plane and got captured by the Viet Cong.

Thinking American: How does that make him a hero?

Chaimstream Media: [Angrily] He pushed more amnesties, started more wars, and bankrupted more future generations than you ever did!

Even the bird-brained ¡Ocasio!-Cortez is genuflecting in nauseating reverence. Agnostic wept.

This is ripe for someone with the special aesthetic touch to meme into virality:

Joe Suber provides a couple of relevant sound clips. This one gets right to the heart of orcs orcking. And this one is especially apt given the Suidlanders’ deeply religious inspiration.

Theresa May should be wearing an orange sash here. My day will be made if anyone gets the reference. Hint: The last contact I had with the Warcraft universe was Warcraft II, the game that came out in 1995, so the answer doesn’t post-date it.

  1. Orange is the color of King Aiden Perenolde of Alterac!

    Warcraft II was a blast. I played III awhile later and I didn't like how they cucked the Orcs. In I&II, they're pure evil and are barbaric to the point of being hilarious. In III it turns out they were corrupted and they really love living in one with nature, having shamans, etc. (I never played WoW.)

    Anyway, people like Theresa May (who in many respects is worse than Merkel – Merkel would've been remembered as a great leader if her brain didn't haywire in 2015, whereas May never had it in her to be anything more than a mediocrity) think the black South Africans are the Warcraft III Orcs – simple, purehearted, and at one with the land. In truth, they're far closer to the Warcraft II ones.

  2. Warcraft II was a blast, and also the last one I really played. I bought but never really played III. Just couldn't get into it. And never dealt with WoW.

  3. Any of you guys remember Shlonglor? How about Kali? I'm old.

  4. I dunno, Theresa May is ugly enough to qualify as an orc…

  5. Sid,

    You did in fact make my day.

    You threw a wrench in there with the earth-loving angle, though. I like to conceive of people like May as supine cowards rather than misguided idealists–it makes them easier to despise. And it's important that WEIRDOs find the ability to really despise again. Our posterity depends on us shaking the pathological altruism/midwestern niceness. Easier said than done.

    Unknown,

    I can still remember virtually every hotkey.

    Fortress 98% done, 99% done… grab peon, "V" (for advanced buildings), "L" (for aLtar of storms), grab peons to repair it, "M" (upgrade to ogre mages), move 9 ogres toward target, "B" (research bloodlust), position ogres, wait for the verbal indication that the spell is researched (I actually can't recall that one of the top of my head–it was "work completed" for humans), click on an ogre mage, "B" (to cast lust), double click on the target (to target him and then get his command), repeatx8, "A" (for attack) behind the destination, BRUTALIZE!

    Issac,

    Dabu.

    Joe,

    Yes, Kali, very briefly. Paid for a few hours, got smoked. That's when I first realized how bad I was at a point in time that I thought I was good.

    Anon,

    Touche.

  6. Agnostic has finally admitted that the Berniecrats won't be cutting immigration, but he's still supporting them.

    http://akinokure.blogspot.com/2018/08/bernie-era-will-continue-reaganite.html

  7. Theresa May makes a lot more sense when you realize that her reason for being PM is to ruin Brexit and punish the UK as much as possible. Who knew that it would be done so incompetently.

  8. I’ve never played WarCraft, but your post did remind me of a video game comparison I thought of years ago.

    Final Fantasy 6 and the Esper World. That game was prophetic and has many parallels with our current time.

    The Espers live beyond a sealed gate and live in peace. The humans live in their world and generally live in peace. The elites of the human world desire more power so they use the Espers to achieve higher levels of power. Breaking the sealed gate, they unleash the Espers to the human world. The Espers live in a different world and CANNOT coexist with the humans. This leads to death and destruction. Peace is only restored once the Espers are gone.

    Now, think about that in our world. The Elites are bringing in immigrants to increase their power. Our “sealed gate” is nonexistent. These cultures cannot coexist. Mollie Tibbets can speak to the death and destruction part.

    Pretty crazy how well that game demonstrates what this country is going through.

  9. Anon,

    Yes, that's very revealing and not particularly surprising. He thinks almost exclusively in materialistic terms.

    Random Dude,

    It is funny to see dopes like May and Justin Trudeau in the putative top spots. The puppet masters don't want marionettes that have enough brains or gumption to go rogue, but nothing comes without costs.

    Andrew,

    Well put. Rather than being some historic figure that is able to bridge the divide (like people projected onto Obama), Terra is a psychological mess, a forever isolated halfling who doesn't fit into either society.

  10. Agnostic has finally admitted that the Berniecrats won't be cutting immigration, but he's still supporting them.

    http://akinokure.blogspot.com/2018/08/bernie-era-will-continue-reaganite.html

    Actually, if you understand the gist of the history at work here, you'd realize that he doesn't support anyone fully. At best, it's a lesser of two evils sort of thing when we're on a downward slide of civility, restraint, etc. We're not in an era of progress, we're in an era of finger pointing and corruption.

    It's only people over 50 (the people who trashed the mid-century(GI) consensus of everyone cherishing what they had, instead of overzealously tearing each other apart to get more…and more…..and more) who delude themselves that they're on the good guy's team. Gen X-ers and Millennials are accustomed to pointless infighting, grandstanding, corruption, lies, etc. We've got no reason to think that the blue team or the red team has some kind of claim on purity or virtue, or bravery. Millennials, even on the "conservative" side (mind you, people under 40 are far less likely to feel strongly attached to either party than older people are), are accustomed to rolling their eyes at Boomerisms about tax cuts for the rich, further de-regulation, mass incarceration, and so on.

    Agnostic says that the Bernie-crats can give us minor improvements on certain issues, but other issues will still be wanting for progress, because right now for another 20-40 years we will be stuck in a cycle of elite decadence. If for no other reason than the elite GOP being addled by the war hawks who pander to the defense industry and the Sun belt's massive military presence, a serious decline in the GOP's viability might lead to America finally paring down our military footprint. The Millennial dominated Alt-Right seriously pushed back against war mongering during the early stages of Trump's admin., and the electorate as a whole wasn't perturbed by Trump saying that Iraq was a mistake. If even GOP voters are tired of the Neocon bullshit, how do you suppose the Left feels? The Dem's current "get tough on Russia" stance is idiotic and bound to go nowhere, since most conservatives don't really buy it and 99% of the military is conservative, outside of the drama fag stuff in the intel department. We never go to war for reasons selected by the Left. If we did, than we would've intervened in WW2 much faster (our intervention was finally spurred by a sense of vengeance after WW2, which is a conservative motivation). Hat tip to Aud E, but the intel lisp brigade represented by Peter Strojk et al will get smoked by the alpha males who command the troops.

    It does seem as if, absent a direct military attack, that America is at this point far more likely to go to war with itself, to the point of Balkanization, rather than engage in a full war against a new foreign opponent.. Remember that Vietnam going sour was the start of the current downward slide, and at this point most Americans are far more hostile towards each other than they are anyone else (This country's moronic apathy towards Muslim immigrants is an obvious sign of our inability to select an outward enemy and focus on it).

  11. Indicative of the infighting within America is that the Left is more busy saying that Putin sympathizing Americans are Neo-Nazis trying to stooge us than they are actually describing what it is about Putin/Russia that is bad and menacing. Back in the American Revolution and esp. the WW2 era, American's gleefully recited a litany of propaganda about how evil and ugly Brits/Krauts/Japs were monsters hell-bent on destroying every positive trait that glued American's together. In the Civil War era and the current era, nothing binds us together anymore, up to and including foreign nations commonly regarded as a threat to America.

    When the idealistic populists like Steve Bannon tried to steer America towards getting tough on bogus and subversives "refugees", and on bogus trade deals with China, elements of both the corrupt modern Right and modern Left show more concern for foreigners and elites than they do for American commoners.

  12. AE,

    I agree that Theresa May is a coward, but cowards usually don't openly admit they're just plain afraid. They make up some BS reason which is meant to sound smart and considered as to why they can't do what they're supposed to.

    What's notable about people who are cucked on Africa is that they have weirdly patronizing attitudes towards Africans. They think of Africans as being sweet, innocent children who retain their laughter in spite of all the circumstances which have come their way. Anyway, that's what I generally saw in people who do development work in Africa. Seeing May stumble around in those African dances makes me think she is like that too.

    The prooblem is that WEIRD morality means basing morality on care and fairness. As Jordan Peterson would say, this means that SJWs on campus have the morality of mother animals: they divide the world between their children and predators, and they can't be too nurturing to their cubs and too harsh to the predators. As Steve Sailer would say, liberalism is leapfrogging loyalties, which I would say comes from their lack of loyalty to the in-group. So people like May think they're just being kind to Africans, even as they're signing the Boers' death warrant.

    Andrew,

    You're not the only one who came away from Final Fantasy VI with those attitudes. It's especially notable that the Returners eventually conclude that the destruction of the Espers is worthwhile collateral damage in ridding the world of magic, and Terra only becomes happy and well-adjusted once she's fully human.

  13. Indicative of the infighting within America is that the Left is more busy saying that Putin sympathizing Americans are Neo-Nazis trying to stooge us than they are actually describing what it is about Putin/Russia that is bad and menacing.

    There are much better enemies out there.  Muslims are ACTUAL enemies, proven by the number of jihad attacks on US soil as well as grooming/rape gangs everywhere they go.  Indians on US soil are an economic threat, and Chinese are a threat in all respects.  So why "muh Russia"?

    I have to agree with those who say it's from those whose (((tribal))) resentments still focus on cossacks.  This is particularly obvious when it's coming from first-generation types like Max Boot.

    What's notable about people who are cucked on Africa is that they have weirdly patronizing attitudes towards Africans.

    It wasn't this way 150 years ago; go read H.R. Helper's "Negroes in Negroland".  But by the 1960's the Cathedral was in full radical egalitarian mode.  This has to be laid at the feet of (((Franz Boas))), the Frankfurt school and all their followers and fellow travelers.

  14. I loved using my navy to bombard enemy fortifications & troops.

  15. The attitude towards Africa, Africans, and black people in general that most white leftist/liberals have is simply a politically correct version of the White Man's Burden.

    They may shriek and hiss at the idea of differences between whites and blacks, but in practice they assume that it's their job, as Good Whites, to protect the blacks from the Bad Whites, and they behave according to the idea that black people are poor oppressed little things that need to be rescued.

    Leftist academia is all focused on the damage that Bad Whites do to the blacks by using "micro-aggressions". According to leftist academia black people are emotionally and psychically fragile that they're harmed by the idea of meritocracy, or by people saying that race shouldn't matter.

    One of the specious explanations of the black-white IQ gap is "stereotype threat", namely the idea that the idea that blacks are going to do worse in IQ tests harms them so much that they actually do worse in IQ tests.

    Black people are supposed to be so fragile and brittle that if white people adopt their music they're harming them and depriving them of their true selves ("cultural appropriation").

    Black people are routinely excused for their crimes and failures, because they're so oppressed than nothing they can do is their fault.

    Leftists clamor for open borders, to get black people out of areas governed by other black people, because living under black leaders in Africa is apparently a crime against humanity, and blacks should live under the caring tutelage of Good White people in white-majority countries.

    This isn't the view of someone who considers blacks as their equals. This is the view of someone who thinks blacks are abused children or mistreated pets that are eternally in need of support, love, encouragement and special care.

    The "equality" that leftists talk about more often than not is simply a thinly veiled request for "reparations" to be paid, because blacks have been damaged by slavery and segregation so much that they just can't survive without white people paying their bills.

    Try to say to a leftist that equality of rights also means equality of responsibilities. They'll immediately call you a racist.

    Leftists don't really believe that blacks are equal to whites, they just believe that all inequalities that affect the lives of black people are caused by white people.

    I can't think of anything more hilarious on the topic of race relations than when a leftist white guy I've talked to on twitter in one tweet was professing how there are absolutely zero differences in behavior between whites and blacks, then in the very next tweet he went on to explain that he, as a privileged white man, HAD to fight the good fight so that black people won't have to, since battling racist ideas was something that put an intolerable strain on the psyches of black people.

    I remember asking him why he assumed that black people weren't able to handle criticism, and why he was so racist to assume that blacks couldn't argue against racist ideas on their own. He blocked me immediately. XD

  16. "So why "muh Russia"?"

    Russia is the last unashamed White Christian Patriarchy not under the thumb of the cultural marxists/SJW's/neoliberal globalists.

  17. "The attitude towards Africa, Africans, and black people in general that most white leftist/liberals have is simply a politically correct version of the White Man's Burden. "

    It seems to me that corrupt and decadent eras are marked by an infatuation with the foreign and exotic. For example, in the late 19th century many Western Christians became consumed by missionary proselytizing in every non-white country that didn't immediately reject them.

    The key here is managing one's own affairs effectively, versus over-extending one's resources and emotions into "outreach" towards out-groups. During the height of American well-being (the 1940's and 1950's), white elites took care of their own, while other ethnic groups here were respected*, they weren't given sacred status, or treated like demi-gods.

    In the 1960's, a generation came of age taking their (material) comfort for granted, and thus were the seeds sown for decades of futile "multi-culturalism" and "integration". The Boomers quickly became drawn to anything that seemed mysterious, experimental, exotic, etc. And in America, conveniently enough, blacks in our own backyard were the first to be championed as "soulful" beings who'd been "held back" by bigoted and staid older generations of whites who were presumed to have championed racial hierarchies as a means of boosting up their fortunes (that whites had traditionally maintained segregation and public promotion of racial differences as a means to protect and educate others never seemed to occur to teenagers and twenty-somethings in the 1960's).

    Of course, a lot of other sound traditions were also under attack by the late 1960's: commitment of lunatics, police freedom to correct criminals, etc.

    That being said, the full impact of PC racial rhetoric and programs wouldn't really be felt until the 1990's, when Boomers started to dominate institutions. In the 1990's, blacks weren't just considered to be worthy of sympathy anymore, as they may have been in the 60's-80's; they now were revered. TV sitcoms started to give white male leads token black friends. Wouldn't want things to be too stale and pale. It's funny too how black and white Boomers seemed to have actual camaraderie in the 70's and 80's, when you watch those movies now, but with Gen X and Millennial casts in later decades you never quite buy it. That's why explicit segregation is now being revived on campus. Millennials can't stand the level of personal and cultural freedom (anarchy and decadence) that Boomers created in our culture……Which let's face it, Gen X-ers and Millennials don't feel is their own, since Boomers have never listened to us, anyway. We're too lazy, misguided, addled by video games and music videos, raised on "junk culture", etc. to be worth taking seriously.

    Gen X-ers are the slowest generation to political power in American history, because the Boomers have said "fuck you" to them so many times that they'd rather watch the whole damn system implode than get involved only to be met by smug Boomers whose interest in ego boosting, wallet stuffing, and mindless devotion to ideology makes them impossible to deal with.

    *Blacks weren't welcome in many neighborhoods, but we nonetheless co-existed with them.

  18. A lot of older Boomers do feel gypped by blacks. Fred Reed, JH Kunstler, I've heard them say that they really believed in uplifting blacks in the 60's…..Only to be very disappointed by later generations of blacks "keeping it real" by deliberately staying outside of the white mainstream while also accepting gibs.

    Of course, the number one thing that Boomers hate (aside from being told what to do) is "laziness". They get absolutely livid about the idea that "their tax dollars" are wasted on welfare bums.

    With a lot of Boomers, they're more bothered by the idea that we've wasted piles of money on racial boondoggles than they are the idea that America's (and indeed the West's) cultural and ethnic history is vanishing due to multi-culturalism and immigration. It's always because of Me Me Me. They want to hang onto as much of their money as possible, and are largely disinterested in collective/large scale public programs to manage our affairs. I remember in article in the Star Tribune (before the Trump era hysteria) talking about a Minnesota rural area/exurb where they asked residents about whether they'd have good roads and higher taxes, vs poor roads and lower taxes. The generally Boomer aged residents picked the latter. And that's not even getting into the countless examples of Boomers wishfully thinking that it's possible to do a lot with very little, something that nobody in the mid-century believed. At David Kaiser's blog (history unfolding) he has a lot of examples of Boomer leaders irresponsibly rushing into some big project without bothering to examine the logistics or funding. For example, WRT Iraq war countless middle aged figures in the military/government clearly were not bothering to examine the financial (or political, or cultural) impacts of the war. However stupid you may have thought Vietnam was, at least we weren't simultaneously telling people that it was possible to wage war while cutting their taxes massively.

  19. "There are much better enemies out there. Muslims are ACTUAL enemies, proven by the number of jihad attacks on US soil as well as grooming/rape gangs everywhere they go. Indians on US soil are an economic threat, and Chinese are a threat in all respects. So why "muh Russia"?"

    "I have to agree with those who say it's from those whose (((tribal))) resentments still focus on cossacks. This is particularly obvious when it's coming from first-generation types like Max Boot."

    The Jews have nothing to do with generational and historical cycles. Well, not nothing…But not all that much, either. Every country's own character and history is unique, though there's going to be some overlap. For example, British Jews are way more conservative than America's Jews are. American Jews are pre-occupied with redneck whites forming mobs and chasing them out, while British Jews are way more threatened (legitimately so) by Muslims in their midst. And with each passing generation, Britian's Leftist parties do more and more pandering to the growing number of Muslim voters. The aging and stagnant Jewish population sees it's interests as aligning more with gentile whites, and conservative (white) parties who wish to preserve trad. Brit culture which has proven to be welcoming to Jews. American Jews seldom feel threatened by America's big minority group of the past and present(blacks, who are hapless), nor do they care about taciturn mestizos who recently became America's biggest minority group.

    Elite liberal whites of the Anglosphere and Europe do not wanted both regions (or large chunks thereof) to unite in opposition to Sunni/modern caliphate builder Muslims and Han Chinese. Why? That would be the acceptance of defeat in the post-1946 attempt to make the world a safer place for neo-liberal capitalists and multi-cultural dreamers. Remember, we're supposed to ignore or explain away the atrocious crap done by Sunnis and Chinese so that our political and corporate elites can continue to pad their accounts and have their palace balls in peace.

  20. Anonymous[] • Disclaimer says:

    A big mistake that lots of people in the alt-right make is to assume that since some white people say that they hate white people, or celebrate the "browning of America", or call for an end of immigration enforcement then they hate themselves, are rebelling, or immature, or brainwashed.

    In some cases, especially with relatively young people, this is true, in some other cases it's (((whites))) who hate whites, but in many other cases the Whites Who Hate Whites don't really hate (or more generically want to undermine) ALL white people, just those who are not Good Whites.

    A lot of young white professionals/white collar workers can benefit from immigration and from the reduction of the power of other white people they disagree with.

    Those people include lawyers, social workers, diversity officers, human resource managers, CEOs of companies which hire low-wave labor, diversity-specialized teachers, social scientists, academics in general who thrive on "fighting white supremacy", journalists, house owners who rent to immigrants, private businesses which hire immigrants and those who can afford a housekeeper or gardener at a cheaper price.

    For these people immigration is a boon, and the "white hate" is just an expression of a division between Good, Cosmopolitan, Well-Educated and Sophisticated Whites and the "racist white trash", those who are Bad, Narrow-minded, Uneducated and Gross.

  21. Speaking of disappearing camaraderie, checking the GSS shows that reported trust levels decline markedly in the 1990's, and have stayed low since.

    Neo-liberalism allows a decent sized chunk of people to make a lot of money, but everything else goes to shit. There's nothing worth celebrating anymore, nothing to bind us together anymore.

    The fucking fools and charlatans who run every single institution in the West have principles and goals that never go beyond their bank accounts. How else do you explain the howls of rage provoked by any attempt to call out or reform "the system" that we've had since 1991?

  22. Feryl,

    It is sobering to go down the line of significant foreign countries and be able to effortlessly list the ones political liberals and political conservatives in the US like, not just absolutely but relatively (i.e. the left doesn't really like Iran, but relative to the right they are a lot more tolerant of the country). The only ones that don't seem obvious are some of the East Asian countries like Japan and China.

    Sid,

    As I watched the video I was wondering how many of the dancing kids in it will end up committing heinous crimes. Will any of them torture a toddler? Not that improbable. I guess the silver lining in it is that she looked absolutely ridiculous. Almost no one will be defending that sorry display.

    Mr. Rational,

    Indeed, Jewish animosity towards Russia is uniquely pronounced.

    Unknown,

    Yeah, battleships were insanely powerful. A shot or two on a tower and it was rubble.

    Dealg,

    Leftists don't really believe that blacks are equal to whites, they just believe that all inequalities that affect the lives of black people are caused by white people.

    Though they'd never admit it, this is spot on.

    chris,

    That may not be de jure reason but it's the de facto one because we can't hate anymore of the Other. That leaves use with Euro-descended countries. Russia is the best choice by far!

    Anon,

    What you point out is why I've become a strong proponent of the RAISE Act and merit immigration programs like it. It's gauche for SWPLs to get worked up over squatemalans who smile deferentially at them and live half an hour away. But the 2%-20% will feel pain from the importation of foreign professionals (we're never reliably getting the 1% on side, I'm afraid). Their kids have to compete with those imports.

    216,

    Looks like the witch hunt paid some dividends–R-I similarly has a 5 point dip in Trump's approval from last week to this week.

  23. Ouch, the source poll overall (-20) as well.

    Is anyone actually surprised? Blacks are highly emotional voters who listen to the media and very easily believe what they're told if it confirms their biases, and the media has portrayed Trump as the KKK president. That's a very simple and effective message, a tried and tested strategy that has always worked.

    Kanye West or Candace Owens cannot change this message, they're successful and (in the case of Kanye) married to a Becky, so they can easily be dismissed an Uncle Toms.

    Indeed successful black conservatives are always envied and hate by unsuccessful blacks. They're seen as sellouts, as "acting white", as not "keeping it real".

    Most blacks simply cannot achieve economic and social success of any kind, because they don't have the necessary skills, but their high self-esteem, high levels and low IQs don't allow them the necessary self-reflection tool to even understand WHY they're not getting what they want.

    The Dunning-Kruger effect is very strong in blacks. They tend to highly overestimate their own abilities, and so to see every failure as the result of external forces. Those external forces are usually identified as white people.

    Black criminals rarely admit to themselves that they're the ones who messed up their lives: they didn't do anything wrong, it's the racist police that hates them. Black absent fathers don't realize that they've neglected their responsibilities, it's "wypipo" who are racist bastards and oppress them, so they're too tired and angry to be fathers.

    Black teenage mothers don't think that they should have used ways not to get pregnant at 15 or 16, it's the state that needs to support them, and if they don't have enough money to buy what they want it's because white people are racist.

    Black unemployed people don't realize that their poor performance in school, criminal record and absence of marketable skills is what is keeping them unemployed and unemployable, if they're without a job it's because job seekers are racist.

    Blacks in general aren't responsible for mismanaging their money, it's the racist white people who shame them and manipulate them through advertising into spending a fortune in big cars, jewels, junk food and hair products instead of buying better furniture or better food or investing their money more wisely.

    In order to win over black people you only need to tell them what they want to hear, that racist white people are keeping them down, that without racist white people they'd be gods and kings, and that white people need to give them money, jobs and services for free.

    Blacks are natural Democrats because the Democratic Party is tailor-made to attract them: it tells them that they're oppressed by racists who are causing all of their troubles and that they should get jobs, money and services for free just because they're black. It's a simple pitch, and one that works extremely well.

    No amount of actual job creation for black communities will sway the black vote. As long as whites are richer and more successful on average than blacks blacks will ALWAYS believe that racist whites are conspiring to keep them down.

    TL;DR: Blacks will ALWAYS vote for those who tell them that their problems aren't their fault but caused by racist whites, and who promise them free stuff. And that's the Democrats.

  24. I remember asking him why he assumed that black people weren't able to handle criticism, and why he was so racist to assume that blacks couldn't argue against racist ideas on their own.

    I see an opportunity to black-knight here.  Maybe try arguing that this is a place where "allies" need to stand down so that Black people can have their own voice heard rather than being drowned out in the roar of a crowd of Whites making themselves feel good.

    He blocked me immediately. XD

    Imagine the cognitive dissonance you could have left him with using a bit of mind-fuckery.

  25. Dealg –

    Exactly. Although you actually understate things here:

    As long as whites are richer and more successful on average than blacks blacks will ALWAYS believe that racist whites are conspiring to keep them down.

    Even if they were as rich and successful as whites, blacks would still believe that racist whites are conspiring to keep them down. Compare to the widespread belief among Jews that there are, even now, vast conspiracies of antisemitic prep-school WASPs keeping them down.

  26. Even if they were as rich and successful as whites, blacks would still believe that racist whites are conspiring to keep them down. Compare to the widespread belief among Jews that there are, even now, vast conspiracies of antisemitic prep-school WASPs keeping them down.

    The main difference is that Jews can actually be as rich and successful as whites without massive amounts of government handouts*.

    I'm fine with people thinking that whites are the cause of all their problems if they're not asking for my money. Believe what you want, it's a free country, as long as I don't have to support you financially.

    *At least the Jews who live in the US. Israel is another matter.

  27. Dealg,

    American black identity is negative. Everything is seen in relation to and as being effected by whites. Coupled with black underachievement relative to whites for reasons largely unchangeable (without super CRISPR), and we're stuck with what you describe. A few contrarian blacks will buck the trend, but that's it.
