Thanks to the Supreme Court, the policy of racial preferences (affirmative action) is back in the news. Preferences have been around for a half century, so the pro and con arguments are well established. On the pro side, preferences are justified by the alleged advantages of “diversity,” while opponents say they are illegal, unfair, and that the benefits of “diversity” are unproven.

There is, however, another opposing argument: Racial preferences are blackmail. They are unearned benefits to bribe blacks into good behavior. We pay the blackmail, but it fails to deliver tranquility. It’s a terrible deal.

At the time of the urban riots of the 1960s, affirmative action seemed to be a cost-effective solution to urban anarchy. Preferences could be implemented by executive order and the costs of government contractors hiring black workers or schools admitting a few blacks would be widely spread out. Beneficiaries would surely move into the mainstream. Nor would many whites object to extending a “helping hand” to people who had long suffered unfair discrimination. Now, preferences are embedded.

The anti-racial preference argument needs to change. Success will not come by filing lawsuits or showing how preferences undermine merit. If these arguments worked, affirmative action would have been ended by legislation. The very idea of racial preferences must be exposed for what it is: extortion. We pay lavishly for a policy that has failed.

Today’s America resembles those English and French coastal towns between the 9th and 11th century that paid the Danegeld to appease marauding Vikings, but they came anyway. Towns eventually stopped paying Danegeld and instead built defenses and trained local militias. When you pay the Danegeld, the Dane never goes away.

We must recognize that we cannot negotiate preferences for peace anyway. There is nobody across the table to deliver the goods. Baltimore or Detroit are not cities run by mafia dons who demand payments in exchange for ending drive-by shooting or stopping the flow of drugs. In fact, if that were true, progress could be made. It is easy to picture the mayor of Baltimore sitting down with the local capo dei capi and turning over cash-filled suitcases to buy peace on the streets. A cash-filled suitcase might be more effective than the billions Washington pours into urban disasters.

Tom Wolfe’s Mau-mauing the Flak Catchers comically illustrated this futility with a depiction of blacks insisting that as “community leaders” they could keep the brothers from running amok. Of course, this is nonsense. Even if the beneficiaries of affirmative action sincerely wanted racial peace, they can’t guarantee the deal. The US is not Africa where an Idi Amin-type can impose a contract, and even then, agreements are fragile.

Affirmative-action black leaders can’t keep the peace either. Cities have repeatedly appointed black police chiefs, but black criminals don’t stop committing crime. Ditto for hiring black school superintendents or principals to quell school mayhem. Meanwhile, the federal government has gone to enormous lengths during the 1960s and ’70s to ensure the election of black mayors and legislators, but this also failed.

Even if we assume that a deal could be negotiated, what may to whites seem like a valuable enticement may not be. A slot at Harvard means nothing to most blacks. The conquistadores knew it was no use to offer books in exchange for gold. Glittery trinkets did the trick, because all exchanges depend on perceived value. Many blacks don’t care about the benefits of affirmative action. The whites who run affirmative action never ask savvy black elected officials what payoffs could shape black behavior.

Preferences over-emphasize the benefits. A judge who rules that unqualified blacks may be admitted to Yale believes that admission is a great prize, but the black who is admitted may not. Why sit in class to enrich the lives of white classmates? If having the Yale degree means a better job, maybe money is the attraction, not the education. What if Yale offered the affirmative-action student $50,000 not to attend?

This keep-the-peace mentality ignores the psychology of gift-giving. It is easy to assume the recipient is grateful, but he may not be. Gift-giving often implies superiority/inferiority and, especially for blacks who prize power and respect, feeling inferior may outweigh the value of the gift. Moreover, why should beneficiaries care about what the gift-giver wants, since he is generous no matter what happens?

The logic of expanding preferences in the hope of buying peace may have it backwards. If a handful of blacks get into top universities by using race as a genuine tie-breaker between genuinely qualified candidates — the theory on which preferences were first sold — there would not be much white resentment. However, as more and more less-qualified blacks are admitted, the gulf between admitted blacks, and whites and Asians widens. It becomes obvious that the gift is undeserved, and the badge of inferiority is plain to see. Achieving a so-called “critical mass” of (unqualified) black students makes race relations worse, not better.

It is time to pull the plug on today’s doomed-to-fail racial preferences by shutting down all government policies that monitor and enforce racial bean counting (preferences for women, Hispanics and so on is another issue). No more Department of Justice consent degrees to “make the numbers” in police and fire departments; no more pressures for those getting government money to hire a workforce that “looks like America,” and no more scrutinizing employment standards to root out alleged bias. Government at all levels should operate as if race does not exist and should no longer assume that bias causes all achievement gaps.

The benefits would be huge. As Charles Murray’s Facing Reality makes clear, if there were no longer a requirement to “make the numbers,” the boost in average IQ across many professions would be enormous, and we would see a jump in productivity. No more incompetent nurses or doctors. Professors could teach demanding courses. Military enlistments would increase.

We could also fire all the useless deans of diversity and inclusion, chief diversity officers, and the lawyers who write litigation-proof personnel policies. The diversity industry would collapse. The saving would be huge. Millions of words of now-obsolete language would be stricken from laws and regulations. Also gone would be one of the most divisive issues in American politics.

Would crime and violence soar? Might blacks start a re-energized Black Panthers Party? Not likely, and the gains far outweigh the costs.

It is hard to imagine legal outcomes triggering George Floyd-levels of mayhem or more black-on-black crime. That comes from lower-class blacks, not middle-class blacks who are the beneficiaries of preferences. Blacks in the hood will not loot Target to rescue diversity-hiring for black hedge-fund managers.

The worst aspects of black behavior — everything from the riots to illegitimacy and welfare dependency — appeared after the civil rights movement, not before. It was a revolution of rising expectations instigated by the major civil rights laws of 1964 and 1965, not a French Revolution style mob. Urban blacks bit the helping hand.

Even if the Court totally bans racial preferences, changes will be almost entirely about government policy, and this will help soften the blow. Nothing the courts can do will stop private firms and schools from favoring blacks and Hispanics over whites and Asians, though this would have to be covert. Millions of good-think employers will keep hiring blacks because they are black. Schools and corporations would sharpen the tools of deception while the National Football League continued to struggle to hire more black coaches.

What about blacks who have affirmation-action jobs now? Nobody would be fired; everything is about future hiring. Also, the blacks who don’t get into fancy white schools might go to black colleges, and the ones who aren’t hired by top white companies might work for black companies. Millions of decent jobs might await blacks if the US returned to an era when millions of black-run businesses catered to blacks. During the pre-civil rights era, black labor force participation often exceeded 90 percent.

It is easy to forget the countless black-owned enterprises that were bankrupted by integration. According to Black Excellence, thousands of black-owned and black-run firms thrived, especially where there was Jim Crow. Many of the estimated 10,000 black-owned firms in 1920 joined some 600 chapters of National Negro Business League. The term “double-duty dollar” was popular — spending at black-owned business was good for both sides of the transaction.

There is a growing nostalgia among blacks for the pre-integration era now lost. As a recent article in Washington Monthly put it:

In 1985, sixty black-owned banks were providing financial services to their communities; today, just twenty-three remain. In eleven states that headquartered black-owned banks in 1994, not a single one is still in business. Of the fifty black-owned insurance companies that operated during the 1980s, today just two remain.

This parallels the demise of black-owned taxi services, supermarkets, publishing, cosmetic firms and mom-and-pop businesses.

Among the greatest beneficiaries of ending racial preferences would be the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s). If there were no preferences to get blacks into top schools, liberal foundations along with state and the national governments could increase support. Recently, Jeff Bezos’s ex gave $560 million to black schools and that may be only the beginning. Top universities, free of diversity and inclusion pressures, might lend a hand with joint programs and visiting faculty, all perfectly legal regardless of what the Supreme Court decides. A Harvard professor deeply committed to racial justice could spend a semester teaching at Spellman College. The school gets a free teacher and can boast that its students learn from Ivy League professors.

It should be clear that ending affirmative action may have consequences far beyond eliminating the most prominent feature of today’s racial spoils system. It could start a mutually beneficial and jointly desired racial disengagement. Black businesses and universities would be reinvigorated while white institutions would no longer be pressured to hire people they don’t want. The affirmative-action stigma on blacks and Hispanics would vanish. Ending the extortion offers far more than just refusing to pay the Danegeld. Free at last.

    Don’t hate yourself for being White.
    There are many more of us aware Whites than most “people or color”, race hustlers, jews and their “pets” and others who blame us whites for every ill on earth.
    Us Whites ARE the most technologically and ethically superior race on earth.
    Which other race can claim the accomplishments that us Whites have been a party to? NONE.
    Blacks, jews, muslims and others still practice slavery around the world to this day. It is us Whites who have attempted to abolish slavery, and have been largely successful in doing so, at least in the western world. In fact, slavery (of gentiles) is still in the jewish “playbook” (talmud) and has never been repudiated by any jewish groups.
    Asians excel in their own ways, and do dominate in certain productive sectors–a good thing. Asian respect for and advocacy for education are admirable traits that all aware Whites must embrace and aspire to.
    A little-known fact is that us gentile Whites comprise approximately 12% of the earth’s population. It is us Whites who should be cherished and protected from genocide. If (((they))) succeed in genociding us Whites out of existence, the world will be far worse off and a much poorer place…

    California voters passed proposition 209 to end affirmative action in 1996. In 1998 the courts upheld Prop 209.

    And affirmative action didn’t end. It got worse and worse. Because the governor was a hard left anti White democrat. And there was no enforcement built into Prop 209.

    The university of California made the only attempt to enforce Prop 209. It began discriminating against Whites in favor of equally qualified Asians and not discriminating against Whites in favor of grossly unqualified blacks.

    Prop 209 was not just against affirmative action in university admissions. It outlawed affirmative action in all hiring promotion contracting and purchasing in every state county city town and special district such as school districts in the state.

    The university of California was the only government agency in the entire state to comply with Prop 209. Other agencies continued on with hiring unqualified blacks and Hispanics instead of qualified Whites. More black and Hispanic police chiefs and officers school administrators building inspectors DMV and city hall clerks.

    Prop 209 was a dead letter law from the beginning a total waste. The White powers that be favor affirmative action.

    In my local Home Depot and Lowes, the half-black workforce can’t put the square pegs in the square holes. In the plumbing section, every bin is a jumbled assortment of different pieces. They will restock a returned elbow that is threaded on one branch in the box for elbows that are slip fit on both ends. Size doesn’t matter. Three inch branches are thrown in with two inch etc.

    The aisles are dirty and unswept. Broken sacks of cement spill onto the floor. It is impossible to navigate a cart from one end of the store to another because each aisle is clogged with carts which contain items which are yet to be restocked. Whole stacks of plywood are mislabeled as to thickness so there will be two opened stacks of half inch and no three quarters available. Five eighths ply is a complete mystery to the restock clerks as is the distinction between BC and CD faces.

    You turn a corner and there’s an employee, in the darkest part of the store, furtively pecking away at his cell phone. The check-out gals sport three inch nails. As often as not they miss items on the cart, can’t be bothered to actually scan stuff on the bottom of a pile of stuff or just enter the wrong code.

    All this in stark contrast to stores in northern locales. Speaking from experience here. Unprejudiced.

    I feel sorry for the corporate managers who have to make cents of black dysfunction. Square the circle, so to speak, because trying to make a black run store profitable can’t be done because blacks themselves consistently put the square peg into the round hole.

    They’re either really, really stupid or they just don’t give a shit. Either way, it’s the same result so what difference does it make which is the real cause? Why should whites trouble themselves with “getting down to the root causes of black dysfunction”? It just is, is all.

  24. Amid all the hagiography of Jackie Robinson, it is often overlooked that the integration of major league baseball actually resulted in a net loss of jobs for blacks. The Negro Leagues went downhill after Robinson’s debut in 1947 and eventually disappeared. The best black ballplayers had no problem finding jobs with major league teams, but the lesser ones had to find real jobs.

    From what I can see, there is plenty of integration but no affirmative action in major league ball today. The pool of players is global. There is plenty of melanin courtesy of the Latin American players, but the American Negro is a vanishing breed. So now we are informed that a World Series without any American black players is a national scandal. Major league teams are donating millions for black youth teams and building ghetto baseball complexes, all to no avail. I can foresee a time in the near future when some sort of quota of American blacks will be instituted. If not a hard rule, there may be some sort of financial incentive for teams to seek out American blacks.

    I haven’t been to a major league game in a couple of years, but as I recall the most underrepresented demographic in the stands were blacks. If they’re not interested, they’re not interested. So why try to sell them on baseball? Any undergraduate marketing major will tell you not to throw good money after bad.

    In my mind there can only be two worldviews; one theistic of some type and the other evolutionary. Since a theistic worldview carries the undesirable “baggage” of objective morality it has been abandoned by the so-called intelligentsia for the fairy tale of evolution. Here in lies the rub. Human beings are incapable of consistency; especially regarding what they profess to believe. If evolution was true and humans were honest then we would not talk about human races we would talk about human species.

    When you take a naturally undeveloped creature like a black African or an American Indian we are talking about thrusting Stone Age hunter-gatherers into modern developed society. Of course they will not fit. It is absolutely cruel to try and make them into something they are absolutely incapable of. Regarding these populations as a whole, only a small percentage can succeed without external help or pressure, such as laws that are enforced or idiotic policies like AA being implemented. Fortunately most red Indians live the only life they are capable of living, on reservations far away from most White people (a possible solution for the Negros problem?).

    Black were more successful when they were “oppressed”, they made great music (unlike now) and they caused fewer problems. The only way for the Negro to succeed in a white world is for the Negro to emulate the White man as they are incapable of doing it on their own—literally “monkey see, monkey do”. Where are all those successful black towns that were founded after the 2nd American Revolution? They are signs on the highway saying “a black community once existed here”. And when they are allowed to take over highly developed and civilized places such a Baltimore or Detroit (or Africa), well we know that outcome don’t we?

    If those Whites who claim to care about the colored man so much, actually cared they would face this reality. But they don’t care and the rotten fruit they produce is a testament to this and the rest of pay.

    A good example of disparity exists in retail establishments in urban areas for good reason. . . .the “vibrant (ghetto) culture” is responsible for the disparities…of course, naming “the elephant in the room” will subject one to accusations of (gasp!) “racism”–I DON’T CARE.
    Compare hardware stores in urban areas and far suburban / rural areas.
    The far suburban / rural hardware store has everything out in the open. Customers are free to pick and choose, examine the merchandise, take it to the cashier and purchase their products. Help is readily available.
    The urban hardware store has everything behind bullet-resistant barriers. One cannot even purchase a twenty-five cent plumbing fitting without having to ask for it. The employees are safely sequestered behind these barriers and may be unwilling to venture beyond them. Quite often, a security guard is posted at the door to “inspect” purchases and act as a deterrent to “shoplifting”.
    On a personal note, my local (rural) hardware store experienced a power outage. The proprietor of the store gave incoming customers flashlights so that they could shop while power was being restored. Try doing that in an urban hardware store. Both flashlights and merchandise would be picked clean . . .

The Deep State is confident in its degree of control and does not fear discovery and comeuppance…from the insouciance of the vast majority, it appears they are correct.

    Racial preferences are blackmail. They are unearned benefits to bribe blacks into good behavior. We pay the blackmail, but it fails to deliver tranquility.

    “We” pay the blackmail?

    That’s like “we” went over to the jungles of Vietnam

    When the truth is we, (America’s leaders) decided it would be convenient (for them) to throw an entire segment of society- (poor and working class white men – in the first case, and poor young men of all races in the second)- under the bus, because by fucking over working class white men, it would mollify black anger, at least for a time, by giving those blacks what they demanded, the jobs and opportunities that would have otherwise been available to those working class white men to compete for. Now those working class white men are persona non grata, and that must suck to be them. But, it isn’t us! (the well-to-do and powerful whites who imposed affirmative action).

    If affirmative action would have targeted federal judges and politicians first and foremost, then they could have say “we” payed the blackmail. But it doesn’t, it effects the least powerful whites in society, and condemns them to even more hardship, all while not touching the wealthy whites.

    So for the record, it wasn’t ‘we’ (white society) who payed the blackmail, it was ‘them’ (working class white men) who payed. While ‘we’ (upper-class white society and blacks) got the benefits.

    Nor would many whites object to extending a “helping hand” to people who had long suffered unfair discrimination.

    so long as it wasn’t themselves or their sons who were paying the price.

    The very idea of racial preferences must be exposed for what it is: extortion.

    it’s far worse than that. It is the unconstitutional and immoral demonetization of a segment of society as unworthy of 14th amendment protections, because they are so ‘racist’ that they would unfairly compete with a black man for that factory job. Since poor white men are by definition racist, then the state must remove their ‘equal protection’ status as equal members of society under the constitution (and every known tenet of a fair and just society), and be denied these protections, because being racist, they don’t deserve them.

    That is the unspoken meaning (and “justification”) of Affirmative Action. That working class white men are unworthy of the protections of the Constitution that all others are entitled to. Because working class white men have too much power.

    A judge who rules that unqualified blacks may be admitted to Yale believes that admission is a great prize,

    this judge, (subverting not only the constitution and his sworn oath, but also all known tenets of morality and fairness), also knows to a certainty, that his own son is not the one who’s going to be told to fuck off. But rather someone else’s son. That is the key.

    Military enlistments would increase.

    extremely interesting thing to say

    It could start a mutually beneficial and jointly desired racial disengagement.

    Sounds pretty good. But no matter what the SC does, it no longer matters, because as we all see with every ad or commercial from Big Corporate, wokeness is now codified in the private sector. (One of their big gains from the Plandemic). Now there’s no daylight between the ‘private sector’, (think Big Tech, Big Pharma, Auto companies, Sports franchises, and so on, right down the line to NASCAR), where wokeness rules. They no longer need a government enforced mandate to fuck over whitey, now it’s hardwired into the corporate cultures and H.R departments.

    Affirmative Action undermined everything I was ever told to believe about ‘America’. It was an obvious and overt statement that America and its institutions and vaunted notions of ‘freedom’ and fairness and the Rule of Law, was all horseshit. Bromides and empty platitudes for the masses, as the wealthy and powerful picked winners and losers based on skin color.

    I recall a while back being in the courthouse for jury duty, and being told to stand up for the pledge of allegiance to the flag, and me and a black guy were the only ones who refused to stand. We both shared a knowing look at each other, perhaps for different reasons, but it was ‘fuck that shit’. Affirmative Action turned the U.S. flag into toilet paper. Worse, because at least toilet paper isn’t a fraud, and is what it claims to be.

  38. Affirmative action may be needed by businesses for legal reasons.

    Right now businesses that comply with AA are protected from both “sides.” If they meet their quotas they are not guilty of discrimination “by definition.” Whites who are unfairly passed over cannot sue because AA is the law.

    But a nightmare could ensue without AA. Hire under-qualified nonwhites and shut out better-qualified whites for those slots and whites could sue. Hire too many whites and Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton come to town. You could never find a balance. Disaster.

    Nor would many whites object to extending a “helping hand” to people who had long suffered unfair discrimination.

    Did blacks, before Affirmative Action, actually suffer unfair discrimination in hiring or university admissions? Is it likely that Harvard would have discriminated against a black student whose test scores were higher than the white rival?

    I consider that a valid question. Sure, during slavery they certainly suffered discrimination, but what about the early 20th century?

    I own a business, and have hired many non-whites over the years, and would always hire the best qualified person, because I want the business to succeed. I can’t even imagine a business owner deciding to hire a less-qualified white man, rather than a black, all other things being equal.

    So I don’t buy the notion that blacks in the sixties were being subjected to widespread unfair discrimination, any more than they are today. If they didn’t excel it was likely due to other considerations, just as we all see today, where even after decades of Affirmative Action, all non-parity between blacks and whites is automatically put down to discrimination (racism). I don’t buy that conclusion. I think there are other forces at work, than the tiresome (and by now idiotic) excuse that all black folly is always a direct consequence of white racism.

It’s one of their charms, I would say, that they often don’t give a shit. They figure (rightly so in the case of Home Depot or Lowes), that the store is owned by ‘the Man’, (wokeness as far as I’m concerned), and so they’d rather help some poor bloke out, than be too worried about ‘the Man’s’ profits.

    Of course, the hierarchy of race begs the question: If other, non-white races are inferior to “whites”’, then is there a hierarchy within the “white” race? Would not certain “white” groups be considered superior to others that seem “less white” or “not quite white”?

    Indeed, French philosopher Michel Foucault traces race discourses as far back as the 1600’s. The earliest discussions centered on race as being of lineage, language, and tradition, correlated with religion and personal character. To be a member of the Saxon “race” was to speak and live like a Saxon, as compared to other groups.

    Now, would a Saxon (or an Frank, or a Norman, or a Visogoth) in their heyday have referred to themselves as being “white”? Furthermore, Foucault looks at how the idea of race “mutated”. In the 1700’s, to be a member of a particular race centered on having a specific physical appearance loosely tied to lineage. By the mid to late 1800’s, race morphed into a biological concept based on the theories of Herbert Spencer and Charles Darwin.

    Let us also refer to the Greeks and Romans, the foundation for “Western civilization”. Their ideas resonated during the development of the modern European university in the 1700 and 1800’s. Here, classical texts we know and love collided with the racial markers and attitudes of their day–along with Biblical justifications for slavery–as intellectuals of the time period created racial categories placing Europeans at the top rung when it came to scientific and cultural achievements. This result is other than surprising, given how the earliest charts of racial differences were rooted in racial superiority, as scholars has deemed the ancients as being the quintessential “white civilizations”. Yet, would Greeks and Romans have referred to themselves as being “white”?

    There seems to be this conflation of “Western Civilization” and “whiteness” as embraced by the Alt Right today. To me, they are claiming “Since we have inherited the classics because they are our specific genetic and cultural legacy, we are a superior people by which all other peoples are measured and judged”. So, iSteve (and company), how do you rectify this notion with beliefs from the Good Book? The Bible says, “From one man he made all the nations. We are God’s offspring” (Acts 17:26, 29).

    1) Do you agree or disagree with those Christians consider Europeans to be a “chosen people and Jews to be the cursed offspring of Cain, the ‘serpent hybrid’ (a belief which is known as the two-seedline doctrine)”? Why?

    2) What are your thoughts regarding Wesley A. Swift’s doctrine (he was founder of the Church of Jesus Christ Christian) that non-Caucasian peoples have no souls and therefore can never earn God’s favor or be saved?

    3) How is “race realism” justified from a religious position considering that Christianity’s drive is towards universalism? Just to make it clear, Christian universalism refers to “a school of Christian theology focused around the doctrine of universal reconciliation – the view that all human beings will ultimately be saved and restored to a right relationship with God”.

    But all public officials are corrupt liars, in fairness they are becoming more flagrant, and less worried about being exposed.

    This is the result of the development of political parties (Also called “political machines”), see George Washington Plunkitt’s book . Reformers can prevail against the political machines, but only temporarily (See chapter “Reformers only Morning Glories” in Plunkett [1]). The machine lives longer than any single reformers, and has resources that reform parties do not. Political parties are destroyed only after great upheavals, and sometimes (example: the Democrats after the US Civil War) aren’t destroyed even when their side has lost a major war.

    The war that the world appears to be entering thanks to the probable end of US suzerainty and the victory of Black Coalition government in the US could last 30 years or more, which would probably destroy all political parties that exist in 2022, perhaps transforming surviving politicians into people only interested in ending the fighting (Napoleon being and example). Estimated excess deaths, worldwide, are in the “one or more billion” range, and would be mostly from interruptions in food supply and adequate treatment for consequent diseases. Example: assuming that fertilizer production drops to 30% of its pre-war values, you would expect perhaps half of the world population to die from malnutrition / disease. That would be between 3.5 and 4 billion people, essentially too many to count if only because adequate records could not be kept in such a situation.

    You may think that impossible, but consider: about half the US population lives in large urban areas (LUA), and the LUA are inadequately funded voting farms. The LUA in the US and Europe have not been self supporting since about 1970 (for a round figure), and have been supported by funding from their respective national governments. The funding has come from “inflation” of the currencies — borrowed or printed money.
    A disturbance able to end all political parties in existence as of 2022 would be large enough to stop, not “interrupt” or “reduce”, but stop, LUA funding. That would mean that national income was insufficient to house, feed, clothe, LUA inhabitants. We can see the initial sages of that today in the “homeless camps”, some of whose denizens are gainfully employed professionals early in their career. LUA population, wherever the LUA were, would drop to a small percentage of current population, and the country’s population [2] would, essentially, fight for food, housing, and clothing distribution. Much of the population would (as the Irish did during the Great Famine) simply try to live on what was available and avoid having children.

    IMHO, the above would not be a desirable situation, but may be an unavoidable one.

    Now, are you absolutely sure that you want the political parties to end? Do you want the consequences of what you want, the second order effects?

    To end on a lighter note, here’s a famous light verse about using words without considering what they really mean. In the poems case, it is metaphor and simile; in unz.com this takes the form of hyperbole.:

The point is that these nice upper-middle class diversity blacks guard the left flank of the oligarchy: in exchange for a cushy job and no heavy lifting, they deflect attention from how the bulk of the entire working class (of all colors) is getting squashed. That’s the deal.

    I mean, I lose track of how often I hear some incompetent upper-middle black professional complain about how hard it is in poor black neighborhoods. And the solution is to give this specific black professional a corner office and a raise? How does that help blue collar blacks that have just been fired and replaced with foreign nationals? Of course it doesn’t. That’s the point.

Or, for that matter, the Republicucks like Jeb!, who deserve it in spades.

    Sadly, all too often it’s good and decent people who’ve done no harm, that end up being victimized by the orcs unleashed upon them by scum.

    How nice it would be to fill a big island with all the shitlibs and Republicucks and all their precious criminals and illegals and ‘refugees’, with all the politicians who’ve voted for the wars, all forced to live out the perfect karma on an island, where they can do no more harm to innocent people.

    Only the few honest people left will probably end up stranded on that island.

    The time is long past – for those who could – to stand up and say or do something about anti-white discrimination. That time was in the last fifty years – not after we’ve lost our freedom. Instead most continue to ignore the obvious progression from 1964 until today. They still congratulate themselves for having put laws on the books that dis-empower and DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THEMSELVES!

    What did they expect? – How could the outcome be any different than what we are seeing today?

    You’re an individual of patently low-IQ who can’t come up with actual arguments to defend equality worship, so you always say the same low-IQ thing. What number did they actually tell you? I’m betting it was around a 68, right?

    A useful article, well reasoned.

    And yet, maybe the author is too pessimistic.

    Roe v. Wade has, after all, gone, though as recently as 2021 it seemed as permanent as Stonehenge.

    Might not, therefore, a judiciary endowed with temporary aversion to mau-mauing consign Brown v. Board of Education to the same trash-can where Roe now dwells?

    shitlibs don’t see it that way. They see the working class whites (the main victims of AA) as beneath them. And they’re self-serving. Joe Biden would toss every single working class white man under the bus, if it meant that he could personally benefit. And the Republicans are no better. If there was a lever to pull that would plunge millions of working class whites into the pits of despair and destitution, and the first one to pull it would get perks from his ((master)), then Paul Ryan would shove Joe Biden into the dirt to be first to pull that lever.

    imagine what that would do for The Great Separation.

    Imagine a state that would legislate what the Constitution guarantees, if it weren’t for treasons like Brown.

    Imagine Arkansas or Idaho, proclaiming that if it’s good to have black colleges,

    then forbidding whites from the same thing is patently wrong and unfair.

    I wonder how many parents and students graduating from their respective high schools, so full of diversity and anti-white hatred on acid, would fight tooth and nail to get into an exclusively white school? With a curriculum based on academic excellence, and no wokeness?

    How many Jew’s heads would explode if such a thing became viable and even a trend?

    I suppose the reason it would never work, (even if it became legal in the state) is because white American fathers wouldn’t want their sons or daughters to go to a college that didn’t have a competitive football team.

    I don’t disagree with you. The three you mention were the worst prior to WW2.

    Post WW2, the three worst are LBJ, Obama, and Biden.

  100. ‘…What if Yale offered the affirmative-action student $50,000 not to attend?’

    It would probably be a net gain all around.

    In fact, given a tidy fifty k to meet the rather modest criteria needed to gain admission to a Yale if you’re black — a high GPA and let’s not fret too much about the test scores — rather than the questionable allure of attending an alien school in an alien environment studying subjects of no interest, academic effort in black schools would probably soar.

    It sounds like a win-win. No black half-wits ruining once-fine schools on the one hand, more reasonably literate blacks on the other — and all for only fifty grand a head. A lot of your black wannabe pimps and gangstas would at least have taken care to learn to read so as to pick up that cash.

    ‘I don’t disagree with you. The three you mention were the worst prior to WW2.

    ‘Post WW2, the three worst are LBJ, Obama, and Biden.’

    Clinton was more catastrophic than is generally realized. At the time, there was a lot of sentiment against black welfare dependency, and at the same time, an economy that would have made it practical to have addressed the issue.

    We could have barred immigration and started seriously cutting off welfare. Then companies would have had no alternative but to hire blacks, and blacks would have had no alternative but to take the jobs.

    Clinton basically missed his opportunity. What was it Bismarck said…

    Oh yes: ‘The statesman’s task is to hear God’s footsteps marching through history, and to try and catch on to His coattails as He marches past. ‘

    Well, Clinton didn’t. He was dealt a great hand and played it badly. Isn’t that worse than not being able to make anything out of crap cards?

    Thanks for pointing out some of the things Clinton could have done but didn’t do.

    One thing Clinton did was give our technology to China.

    Before Clinton, a company needed an export license just to ship a primitive IBM-PC or clone computer to a Chinese customer to help make sure it wasn’t contributing to Chinese military technology.

    Clinton actually gave technology to China so they didn’t have to steal it anymore. The Chinese landed the spacecraft on the dark side of the moon using 99% Russian and USA technology that was stolen and given to them. Without Clinton, Chinese technology would not br where it us today.

    I’m sure he and Hillary did or didn’t do some other things to harm the country too.

    These people are totally irresponsible. You can forgive a lot of our leaders: the thought they were doing the right thing, even if it didn’t work out so well.

    But the Clintons?

    Ah, white women, the most coddled (yet most ungrateful) creatures on earth. So stronk and independent, yet so weak and fragile. Can the “media” make up its mind on the female narrative? Women, in general, are held less accountable than 5-year-olds in the western world.

    Affirmative action and quotas…amongst the many handouts provided to white women to maintain loyalty to the government instead of family.

    It’s cute how the media continues to cover for them when it comes to articles on “black affirmative action”. The privilege/entitlement trough will always be full for white women.
