The New York Times Magazine’s 1619 Project is the future of American education.

Buffalo Public Schools announced this month that the essay series will now be mandatory for its students and other school districts are soon to follow. The news was greeted with grumbles from acclaimed historians and conservatives, who despise 1619 Project’s attacks on sunny liberal view of American history. The critics wish to uphold a triumphalist view of America that emphasizes its ideas and progress, the 1619 Project emphasizes America’s racism. While the Times’ project is marred by sloppy scholarship, absurd claims, and black narcissism, it touches on more truth than the critics’ hagiography. The race realism of the founders can’t be separated from the nation they created. To the Dissident Right, this is a noble legacy that must be defended; to the supporters of the 1619 Project, it’s a terrible blot that must be recognized and eradicated.

The detractors’ preferred history treats racialism as an aberration of the founding and insists the founders wanted a multicultural America. Sure, there were some bad things in the past but that shouldn’t distract us from how free America is!

The 1619 Project eviscerates this vision and provides non-white America with an alternative theory. Whites are the source of all evil in this country, and only non-whites can make America great. Blacks are our real founders, not the dead white males of the Constitutional Convention. The founding ideals are good, but only if they’re interpreted by black and brown voices.

This vision is insanely anti-white and far more appealing to minorities than the stale hagiography found in airport bookstores. This is the history our children will learn in public schools, and it will soon replace Ken Burns historiography.

The 1619 Project takes its name from the year the first African slaves landed in America and aims to mark this event as the true founding of our country. The project, led by New York Times writer Nikole Hannah-Jones, argues slavery built America and blacks are the real founding fathers. The series, which includes contributions from academics and respectable journalists, is largely sour on America and every essay bemoans a facet of American racism.

Here’s a sampling of what to expect from the series:

  • “Why Is Everyone Always Stealing Black Music?”
  • “How False Beliefs in Physical Racial Difference Still Live in Medicine Today”
  • “How America’s Vast Racial Wealth Gap Grew: By Plunder”
  • “How Segregation Caused Your Traffic Jam”

Academic critics are fine with most of these essays, as they also believe blacks are integral to America and racism needs to be atoned for. But the liberal historians cannot abide the claims about the revolution, Abraham Lincoln, and the importance of slavery to the modern economy. Hannah-Jones lead essay claims the Revolution was fought to preserve slavery and Abraham Lincoln was racist.

That essay, entitled “America Wasn’t a Democracy Until Black Americans Made It One,” works through Hannah-Jones’ own conflict over her identity. As a young person, she saw the American flag and other patriotic symbols as alien. Now, she believes blacks have the greatest claim to these symbols.

[I]t would be historically inaccurate to reduce the contributions of black people to the vast material wealth created by our bondage. Black Americans have also been, and continue to be, foundational to the idea of American freedom. More than any other group in this country’s history, we have served, generation after generation, in an overlooked but vital role: It is we who have been the perfecters of this democracy.

The black writer correctly notes the Founders did not want America to be a multiracial democracy and blacks were not part of their body politic.

The United States is a nation founded on both an ideal and a lie. Our Declaration of Independence, approved on July 4, 1776, proclaims that “all men are created equal” and “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.” But the white men who drafted those words did not believe them to be true for the hundreds of thousands of black people in their midst.

She argues that blacks made these ideals true, in spite of the country being founded on their oppression. Hannah-Jones, who curiously appropriates white hair color, makes bold claims about American history.

The revolution was initiated to protect slavery, Abraham Lincoln was racist, whites did nothing to help blacks, and “[a]nti-black racism runs in the very DNA of this country, as does the belief, so well articulated by Lincoln, that black people are the obstacle to national unity.”

The first claim is clearly false, the second is true, the third is false, and the latter claims are sort of true. But the historians believe these claims are all false and dangerous to teach.

Five prestigious historians–Sean Wilentz, Gordon Wood, James McPherson, James Oakes, and Victoria Bynum–wrote a letter to the Times last month demanding the paper of record correct these alleged falsehoods. The historians praise the project for bringing more focus to slavery and racism, but contend the project didn’t include sufficient academic review and these errors marr the whole series.

New York Times Magazine Editor in Chief Jake Silverstein defended the project’s accuracy and stood by Hannah-Jones’s claims.

Several scholars agree with the letter, but didn’t sign it to avoid lending credence to a “white historians’ criticism.”

The five historians first criticized the project in separate interviews with the Trotskyite World Socialist Web Site, an unlikely place to lead the fight against leftist historiography. Most of the historians are centrist liberals. Gordon Wood is Newt Gingrich’s favorite historian and has written: “‘To be American is not to be someone, but to believe in something’ – i.e., to believe in America as a democratic idea, not an organic body or an extended family, like a European nation or people.” James McPherson wrote the most popular scholarly account of the Civil War. James Oakes is a chief exponent of the argument that the Union fought the Civil War primarily to end slavery. Victoria Bynum wrote the Free State of Jones, which inspired the execrable film. Sean Wilentz is a Bancroft Prize-winning historian of the antebellum era and proudly signed an academic petition to impeach Donald Trump.

In the World Socialist Web Site (WSWS) interviews, the historians are goaded into a strange combination of boomer conservatism and old-school Marxism. Most of the historians praise Karl Marx’s positive thoughts on the Union and Lincoln and attack 1619 Project’s identity politics. They dismiss the project’s claims about the revolution and the Civil War and insist whites helped elevate blacks.

All of the historians were particularly appalled that the Project calls Lincoln a racist. “It’s ridiculous. Most of what Abraham Lincoln had to say about African Americans was anti-racist,” Oakes told WSWS. The 1619 Project claims Lincoln was a racist due to his support for colonization of freed blacks. Oakes is outraged by this claim and insists Lincoln gave up this idea by the time of his assassination and was a committed racial egalitarian.

Wilentz, arguably the most vocal critic of 1619, echoed this argument in an article for The Atlantic last week defending his position. “Lincoln asserted on many occasions, most notably during his famous debates with the racist Stephen A. Douglas in 1858, that the Declaration of Independence’s famous precept that ‘all men are created equal’ was a human universal that applied to black people as well as white people,” Wilentz writes. He also very seriously states that Lincoln had black friends and that means he definitely was not racist.

However, Lincoln was a long-time supporter of colonization who still believed this the best solution to emancipated blacks as late as 1864. Most of his political rhetoric upheld the idea that America was a white man’s country and that blacks could not be full citizens.

Lincoln said in the aforementioned debate with Stephen Douglas:

I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will for ever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality.

1619 is more right about Lincoln than its critics.

But the historians are right about the cause of the American Revolution. Silverstein defended Hannah-Jones claim that the revolution was started to protect slavery by pointing to the 1772 Somerset decision and Lord Dunmore’s Proclamation. The Somerset court decision, which received little notice in the colonies, ruled that slavery was not found in English common law. The decision obviously did not apply to Britain’s many colonies that depended on slave labor. In 1775, Lord Dunmore, the governor of the Virginia colony, declared that any slave who took up arms against the Patriots would receive his freedom. This proclamation certainly encouraged colonial support for the revolution, but it was issued after the rebellion had already erupted.

“Assertions that a primary reason the Revolution was fought was to protect slavery are as inaccurate as the assertions, still current, that southern secession and the Civil War had nothing to do with slavery,” Wilentz argues.

But the real fight is not over sloppy scholarship–it’s over interpretation. Even though clown-haired Hannah-Jones says she loves America, her project makes readers hate the country’s history. How could one love a nation that was so racist toward the most noble people to ever walk the earth? It completely separates the values and deeds of America and places them with people who played no integral role in our country’s founding. America becomes a nation exclusively for non-whites to redeem.

This is horrifying to boomer historians. The founders may have said some politically incorrect things about race, but they cared about freedom! Their ideas were good and we should honor them as the forerunners of modern liberalism. They would impeach Drumpf, welcome refugees, and march with Martin Luther King as a brother if they were alive today.

This whitewashing of American history is both wrong and silly, but it is appealing to wide swaths of white America. This is the history education most Americans received after the 1960s, and old ways die hard. Many Americans still think racism is the worst thing in the world, and they can’t accept the Founding Fathers as white supremacists.

But this side is losing in academia and journalism. Professor Oakes says he feels besieged by campus “identitarians” due to his avoidance of identity politics and that graduate students gravitate toward the fields that encourage minority narcissism.

On one hand, it’s good that the liberal view of American history is on its last legs. This historiography has inspired every bad meme in our country’s recent history. It obscures an identitarian view of our country and imagines the whole world can become America with the right constitution. The 1619 Project is the just desserts for this historiography, the monster liberals created with their talk of a multiracial America and the virtues of “anti-racism.” Now whitey is not allowed to join the new America and teach its history.

At the same time, it’s terrible that the 1619 Project will likely become the basis for American history curriculum. Millions of young Americans will only learn whites are evil and non-whites are the epitome of virtue. They will learn whites made America terrible while blacks made it great.

The upside is that this potentially opens the way for the identitarian view of history. More Americans will read the Founders’ views on race and how they intended the nation to be for whites. Many of them will ask “what’s wrong with that?,” the question at the heart of identitarian historiography. There are similarities between the leftist view and the identitarian view. What differentiates them is the hatred for whites and the exaggerated importance of non-whites in the leftist view.

Identitarian historiography would shift the focus from American ideals to the achievements and struggles of the American people. Our nation is great due to its founding stock and those Europeans who assimilated to it, not to words on a piece of paper. “All men are created equal” is not the core of our country–it’s the historic American nation. The Founding Fathers were ethno-nationalists and racial egalitarianism repulsed them.

This is the true vision of America and it must be championed against the unbearable ethnic narcissism of the 1619 Project and the decrepit historiography of Boomer liberals.

  1. This is not new. Herbert Aptheker and all the jewish historians of the Confederacy claimed that blacks were more american because of their struggle for liberation. The black experience therefore defines freedom. Also the black body is more sexual and connected to nature. Trotsky wanted “white negroes” and it is no surprise to hear radical jewry calling for the white negro through norman mailer. Most every historian of slavery was a jewish leftist with connections to the publishing business. It was a media blitz. Eventually smart black guys realized they were getting used by jews as cultural shock troops.

    What happened is the jews overplayed their positions and this second generation of millennials actually believed it when they went to college. So you have a lot of jews backing off and idiot millennials taking it too far.

  2. It’s fatuous to quote Lincoln’s statement from the 1858 debate as what he believed was true in 1864. Lincoln changed his mind about black inferiority because of the performance of the 190,000 men who volunteered for the “colored regiments.” They contended with insurgent fighters in grisly “black flag” engagements in which it was understood that neither side would take prisoners. Lincoln said he feared he would be damned to hell if he betrayed his “noble black warriors” by exiling them from the country they so bravely defended. Recall that Irish and German immigrants formed their own regiments for the same purpose, to prove themselves worthy of full US citizenship.

    The film “The Free State of Jones” is anything but execrable, for it reveals the deepest falsehood in the toxic Lost Cause myth. The insurgency lost the hearts and minds of its people long before its final battlefield defeat. The “Spirit of ’61” barely lasted a year, until the Confederacy initiated the first military draft in American history. Specifically exempting large slaveholders and those affluent enough to purchase an exemption, it revealed to southern soldiers that they were trapped in “a rich man’s war and a poor man’s fight.” Two-thirds of the south’s fighting men deserted during the course of the war.

    The Confederate Home Guard functioned like an American Gestapo, routinely murdering and torturing dissenters, deserters, and their family members. And they seized poor families’ supplies of fodder and livestock, paying for them in worthless Confederate scrip. Meanwhile wealthy slaveholders continued to plant cotton and tobacco, whose wartime prices had skyrocketed, instead of the corn and wheat and oats their armies needed so desperately. Half a million white southerners – one in eight – fled the police state that was the southern confederacy. At least 100,00 returned wearing Union blue, to liberate their homeland from the tyranny Richmond had so quickly became

    Throughout the south actively anti-Confederate secret societies sprung up with such names as the Sons of 76, the Union Circle, the Order of the Heroes of America, the Closet Fellowship, the Peace and Constitution Society, and the strongest, the Peace Society, whose membership in Alabama alone was said to include every other man in the state by the end of 1863. The large number of troops taken from the front lines to suppress these counter-rebellions was a decisive factor in the final insurgent defeat.

    Eminent Southern Historian E. Merton Coulter eloquently summarized the south’s tragedy in his 1950 classic “The Confederate States of America, 1861 – 1865”, where he writes, “The Confederacy was not blessed with a ‘one for all and all for one’ patriotism with which future generations of sentimental romancers were to endow it. Had it been so, this newborn nation might well have established its independence.”

    The war was fought so fiercely for one reason: an aggressive expansionist foreign power at its southern border and in control of the Mississippi River posed an existential threat to the internal security of the United States, and to the economic development of the Midwest. The northern elite refused to “let the erring sisters depart in peace” not because of anything as trivial to them as the human rights of mere slaves. `

    Americans, even euro-americans are very niggerish compared to europeans who never left europe. i am not only speaking genetically but also culturally. speak to any objective person and they will say that americans have nigger charateristics when compared to europeans.

    America without slaves is something a truly race conscious elite white elite would have created. instead of importing blacks for cheap coerced labor and sex, as many americans did.

    If so many Southerners were deserting and had to be forced into fighting why did we take so long to defeat the South. Also why did over 600,000 (some are now estimating over 700,000) mainly white men die in the conflict…

    Clearly someone was doing some heavy defensive fighting for those kind of numbers.

    Lincoln merely believed that whites and blacks would never get along together amicably (a view for which there is an appreciable amount of evidence). Colonization was a possible solution but would have been an expensive and difficult undertaking (although likely less so than the Civil War). With the abolition of slavery, it would have been extremely difficult to coerce the now free black population into emigration, so the idea died.

  7. Obsolete farm equipment (slaves) didn’t build America. Sorry. It’s a lie, everyone knows it. They picked cotton and cleaned houses for awhile. Beyond that, they were only good as genetic stock for the NFL/NBA. After that, strictly an expense. And now a criminal expense in many ways. Take away Black crime, we have no crime.

  8. So what? A little discussion is healthy.

    – That Texas joined the Union because Mexico abolished slavery is common knowledge;
    the Revolutionary War was two decades off but not too far out. Britain outlawed the transAtlantic trade in 1808 to punish the colonies´insolence – as a result slaves became so expensive the dangerous and debilitating work (docking and mining) was left to the Irish and Germans.
    The average plantation slave worked 4hrs/day (like the Mormons´fabled worker bee 😛 ; the indignity of it.).
    The right of a slave craftsman to work for his own pocket and eventually buy himself was almost universally recognized but hardly ever claimed.

    – Marx did call the colonies “worthless” without slavery (“absolutely no injustice”, BTW).
    Whatever sympathies he had for the North were confirmation bias from his historical model and unadulterated blood lust.
    True is as much as the plantations (slabbery or not) were the sole source of forex
    until ~1840 – leading to fantasies of the “Golden Circle” planters´republic with capital Havanna. Apart from a certain revival by United Fruit the idea went nowhere.

    – The Emancipation Proclamation makes clear the North regarded freed blacks as weapons of mass destruction, not as something they intended to visit upon themselves.
    As a consequence black life expectancy took a nosedive in 1865.

    – In roughly the same time frame the first lonesome Whites penetrated inner Africa
    (=sorry, no slobbering redneck slave hunters whatsoever).
    Indeed Stanley, the famous non-snowflake – they did not call him Bula Matari (“the breaker of rocks”) for nothing – got rather appalled at the atrocities committed by Arab slavers (including a calculation that the uselessly spilled blood could fill a tank big enough to drown all slave raiders and their extended families).
    All the funnier it is that the descendants of said slaves, when they wax identitarian, use the language of the slavers (Swahili = lit. “coast”).
    Then again Cinque of “Amistad” fame, on being freed, promptly became a slave trader himself so it´s probably par for the course.

    I hold that a little introspection every now and then is a good thing 😀
    But as Solshenitsyn noted it would take a major lost war.

  9. Lurker says:

    Gunga – none short of you-know-what I´m afraid.
    Blacks have had their Moses – Booker T.
    He promised them “fifty years of the crucible” (not, mind you, the “melting pot”),
    and they would have none of it; along came Webb DooBoys and promised them
    “the white woman as the token of equality” and it seems that´s what they always wanted
    … so this particular well has been poisoned from the beginning.
    We should not forget they are just pawns in a game they don´t understand –
    but their net cost to the taxpayer (to include extra prisons but not the ruin of public education, gubmint “jobs”, affirmative action and the countless other ailings of the system)
    equals the Pentagon .

    Ironically, the 1619 project achieves the correct outcome, which is exactly the opposite of what its inventors intended.

    The 1619 project correctly places the accountability for slavery of Africans in what at the time were British colonies, on the British Empire. Plus, it is not like the Spanish, French, and Portuguese were not engaged in the enslavement of Africans.

    It always bugged me that the British Empire was not getting any of the heat for the slavery of blacks in what was to become the US.

    Plus, States outside of the original 13 only became States well after 1776. The West and Southwest didn’t become part of the US until ~10 years before the Civil War, and had almost no person-years of black enslavement in them at all, nor did they experience much Civil War combat.

    For blacks in the Pacific and Mountain Time Zones, in 2020, to say that US slavery of blacks, ages ago, still affects them in any way, is absurd. All blacks on the West Coast (as well as in Phoenix, Las Vegas, etc.) went there voluntarily.

    The American nation was founded on opportunity, and the idea of “every man for himself”. A certain type of person liked this, and what grew out of that was oligarch monopolies, and central banking institutions all of which never really gave two shits about founding fathers or founding documents. For them it was better to have the slave be free for it was cheaper in the long run – no longer a need to house, clothe, and feed the laborer. Pay him only enough to survive on. Labor Unions had a go of it for a while, but at this point in time they are dead and gone. Full Spectrum Dominance is in full swing. Get out while you can!

    Not true….lets be honest. Blacks labored long hours on farms during planting and harvesting. Even into the fifties most rural blacks in the south had farm jobs in tobacco, cotton. road building crews, cutting timber, etc.. the luckier ones had mill jobs.
    My father was big on teaching us boys how good we had it compared to some and what hard work really was. So one summer he had my older brother and I work on a farm ‘pulling tobacco for 10 days, We were the only white boys among the crew and a good number of the ‘pullers’ were black girls/women.
    To do this you sat on a cart going between the rows and snapped off the tobacco leaves as you went along. usually sun up to sun down with a mid day break. It was hot, grueling work and after two days I remember my arms were aching.

    While blacks didn’t literally ‘build America’ they did supply an enormous amount of labor of all kinds.

    Good points nymom.
    (the 600 – 700 K deaths are due in large part to disease)
    Given the low opinion many display for the Reb’ fighting man it’s a true mystery the war lasted for 4 years. And this is on top of the Union’s often massive military, logistical & productive superiority to the South. (of course the Union’s appallingly military leadership in the early period did off set some of those advantages).
    So how did the South fight so tenaciously for so long with such low grade troops?
    Simple: there were very few low grade, demotivated southern troops. Quite the opposite — they fought with ferocity.
    Yes, the South had desertions. But not usually from cowardness, but from a desire to protect their families & farms from the rampaging, raping & burning armies of the North, such as Sherman’s.

  26. Bert says:

    The rebellion against the Confederacy played out in a hundreds of microcosms wherever the local landscape did not allow plantation agriculture and where therefore the local population was made up of subsistent farmers. This included the Appalachian uplands of the Cumberland Plateau (Winston County, Alabama is part of the Plateau), much of the Valley and Ridge Province, and the Coastal Plain where longleaf pine forests were used for free-range ranching, which persisted into the 1940’s in the Florida panhandle.

    Hiding from conscription officers was common, as was armed resistance to Confederate attempts to enlist resisters. My great-grandfather had homesteaded mountain land above the Coosa River Valley plantations in the early 1850’s. When his 15-year old son ran off in 1862 to be a teamster for the Confederate Army in Mississippi, he went there and brought the boy home. When he and his brother (in their 40’s) and that son at age 17 were conscripted in late 1864, they and the lieutenant in charge of their company allowed themselves to be captured during Wilson’s Raid into central Alabama. The lieutenant was commanding the company because its captain had been killed in a shootout with deserters in the streets of Ashville, Alabama, a couple of months prior to Wilson’s Raid.

    This sort of resistance occurred thousands of times in hundreds of places until the government of, by, and for the planters was defeated. The motives of the planters were economic. The motives of the Northern elites were economic, not humanitarian. The sole motive of the Southern resisters was self-preservation in service of caring for their families, a good deal more admirable than the motives of either Northern or Southern elites.

    “It’s fatuous to quote Lincoln’s statement from the 1858 debate as what he believed was true in 1864. Lincoln changed his mind about black inferiority because of the performance of the 190,000 men who volunteered for the “colored regiments.”
    I’m no expert on Lincoln’s views on black people. He may have been a racist, depending on how you define that term. However I suspect his attitude was basically pragmatic. I believe he famously said something along the lines of he would keep slavery or destroy slavery — depending on which one saved the Union.

    Blacks again being used by Jewish activists to consolidate Jewish power in the US. Of course, Jake Silverstein doesn’t believe for a moment that Blacks founded America – but it’s a useful line to further divide, confuse and weaken Anglo society.

    The only defense is the truth. Anglos founded and built modern America, and have given US Blacks many more rights and opportunities than their brother Blacks enjoy in Africa. They also offered a home/citizenship to Jewish refugees chased out of Central/Eastern Europe in WW2.

    On reflection, US Anglos can now see that they were right with the Blacks but wrong with the Jews. Blacks found a place in US society but Jews actively targeted every lever of Anglo power (as they have done in every host country throughout their history). There was no reason to assume that their attitude towards Anglo Americans would be any different to their attitude towards ethnic Germans in Weimar or towards ethnic Russians under Bolshevism.

    Altogether a learning experience for Anglo Americans.

    Specifically exempting large slaveholders and those affluent enough to purchase an exemption, it revealed to southern soldiers that they were trapped in “a rich man’s war and a poor man’s fight.”

    The union had the exact same policy: the rich could pay Uncle Scam a $300 bounty to get out of the draft. ($300 was a lot of money in those days.)

    Two-thirds of the south’s fighting men deserted during the course of the war.

    Two-thirds sounds like an absurdly high-ball estimate. You’d have to wonder how the war could have continued for three more years with desertion rates like that!

    … paying for them in worthless Confederate scrip.

    Not much different from Lincoln’s ‘greenbacks’.

    Meanwhile wealthy slaveholders continued to plant cotton and tobacco, whose wartime prices had skyrocketed, instead of the corn and wheat and oats their armies needed so desperately.

    Which makes sense if you’re trying to maximize exports to get more hard currency. Traditionally, wet crops for local consumption had been cultivated chiefly by small, yeoman farmers, which meant that when large numbers of them were shipped off to the front, food shortages were the inevitable result.

    The northern elite refused to “let the erring sisters depart in peace” not because of anything as trivial to them as the human rights of mere slaves.

    Yes. Thank you for not repeating that old canard about Lincoln going to war to free up the slaves. Abolition was a byproduct of the war, not its purpose.

    Punishing the US was probably not the motive, as it seems that Britain only began to enforce a ban on slave-trading after the US had already outlawed it:

    No, it’s true. Shortly after becoming independent from Spain, Mexico officially abolished slavery. Stephen F. Austin’s father Moses had obtained a land grant in Texas from Spain under the assumption that slavery would still be legal. Despite Spain’s defeat and the subsequent change in the law, the first settlers went ahead and established their colony with slavery as planned. (They were the first Anglo-Saxon slavers. There were already Francophone slavers in east Texas, as that area had been part of the French Empire until the early 18th century.)

  33. It is great fun to watch this historical debate among Americans. Its intensity is truly gratifying. Finally, the US public is starting to ask some basic questions about their place in the world. Goodbye Shining City upon a Hill ! Many other nations have preceded the US on this road of self-examination and introspection. As usual, when Americans are finally experiencing something that is sort of normal (or old hat) to other nations, they think the world has stopped turning.

    Racism cannot be eradicated, it is that simple. Let us be honest: stripped of its sentimental and nasty aspects, it is no more than an extreme form of “groupthink.” It is never individuals that are racist (only utter fools and evil people are truly racist as individuals), but groups. Examples abound.

    As any Southerner knows, one may hate Blacks as a group, but still be good friends with individual Blacks. It is only in the urban centers of the North that one would find “liberals” condemning racism on principle, without however having a single Black friend, nor even knowing one on a personal level. Of course the first European settlers were racist, because it was the only way to survive as a group. Just read Élise Marienstras, Les mythes fondateurs de la nation américaine.

    For the current debate, it would be very enlightening for the American public to start looking in greater detail into the history of its neighbors South of the Ruo Grande. It is there that you will probably find the clues to the most pressing issues of the debate.

    For example, where the US needed two separate wars to end colonialism and constitute itself as a nation, many Spanish Americans accomplished this in one single movement. In Venezuela, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, etc., independence and the end of slavery were achieved during the second decade of the 19th century. In many cases because the shortage of manpower forced the colonial elites to recruit Blacks and Indians to fight the Spanish army.

    Racism in the US received a strong boost through the immigration of over 50 million Europeans. The only way that ruling elites can maintain power under these circumstances is by fomenting civil discord and antagonism between different ethnic groups.

    The present debate probably also has that aspect. While the public is busy fighting over the interpretation of its place in history, the ruling elites quietly continue their rolling out of a totalitarian hell.

    The Compton, Calif violent crime rates before and after the Hispanic Illegal Alien gang invasion suggests that about 1/3 or less of the Afro-American Compton poipulation are “normals”, the rest are descendentrs of the lazy, dim and criminal who “lost their freedom” to the care of Nigerian families who eventually tired of that perpetual burden and traded them for some steel tools (later firearms), European cloth, or American rum. “Double culls” on clearance sale to the Europeans who had better manufactured exchange goods than the Muslim/Berber/Arab slave traders for whom the “abed” was a cheap, expendable commodity. The West Africans just found a more lucrative market for their culls.

    Neither Arab cavalry nor European naval sweeps into the heavy undergrowth were an effective means of harvesting slaves. Them guys were mean. Local slavers and cull clearance were much easier and more profitable. They got Manhattan for a chest full of beads and ship-loads of slaves for a chest of common cutlery and some ribbons.

    The often displayed photo of the “whipped” scarred slave who most likely got his lashing in Africa as part of loosing his freedom. Arabs used stiff single lash, 10s or a hundreds times acording to Sharia Law. The Western Hemisphere punishment typically involved a bruising strap or the often lethal “cat-o-nine-tails” with metal barbs in the tips. I suspect a severely beaten man would not have survived in the West since having him cared for by others would have been “too expensive”. The savage beating was a message to the others. The victim was essentially useless for productive work after a “proper” beating. He was already essentially useless before the punishment which is why he got that beating. He made for a “pretty” picture, an unintended message. That message is why the lash was/is so popular in the Islamic world. I read that Malasia still has a fondness for the lash.

    The New Yorker editors must have been asleep at the wheel for Tricia’s essay to be printed which explains far more than I suspect they intended. Even the Black Cornell students noted that the modern Black “immigrant” students did well academically and had few of the personal problems experienced by Afro-American students. The Afro-American students blamed the history of slavery for their problems without considering what that really meant. Tricia knew.

It obscures an identitarian view of our country and imagines the whole world can become America with the right constitution. The 1619 Project is the just desserts for this historiography, the monster liberals created with their talk of a multiracial America and the virtues of “anti-racism.” Now whitey is not allowed to join the new America and teach its history.

    The forever mistake of liberalism is the idea that, if one simply patronizes the victims of paternalism, racism, conservatism, capitalism, religion or other evil authoritarian force, then the victims will love him. This defies all historical experience. Victims and the downtrodden (real or perceived) become vicious oppressors of all when they gain ascendancy.

    It would appear that in those times certain of the English viewed anyone who could be exploited as fair game, although the “Curse of Cromwell” had obvious benefits for the absolute subjugation of Ireland. African blacks, being of stout constitution (physically speaking), and less susceptibility to malaria, sadly made an obvious choice to the evil minds behind this search for forced labor, especially in the deep south and the Caribbean.

    What is always conveniently missing in the narrative is who exactly were the middle-men in these ugly transactions, who benefitted the most, but got their fingers least encrusted with the filth that accumulated in the daily hands-on of the slave trade. That is where the discussion on slavery trails off and fades into a welcome oblivion for those who wish to currently profit most from the divisions such public ‘debates’ cause to the nation, but quietly endeavor to deflect/silence any and all related criticisms that might reflect poorly on their roles in such inhuman and evil practices that were, ultimately, immensely profitable.

    And any discussions on ‘reparations’ (where all this inevitably leads, of course, to insure even greater social division, despite most current American’s forebears having arrived long after abolition) must include those middle-men and their wealthy descendants as being among the primary sources of such funding (given their enthusiasm for same), rather than them simply being the unending recipients of massive public largesse for their alleged ‘group’ suffering that is seemingly exaggerated beyond comprehension, but strictly off-limits to serious criticism and inquiry……..

    You are absolutely correct about jews being a negative factor in the United States, especially when it comes to societal disruption and racial issues.

    Pushing race-mixing and unconstitutional “civil-rights (for some)” laws on us white heterosexual gentiles while reserving cultural and social insularity, but only for themselves is PROOF that jews have an ulterior motive when it comes to living in gentile white society.

    “Multiculturamism and diversity for thee, but not for me” is a prime jewish mantra…

    Both blacks and jews exhibit destructive behavior which is detrimental to any orderly white-run society.

    Black criminal behavior occurs at a lower level-rampant violent criminality such as robberies, rapes, theft, and even murder.

    Jewish criminality occurs at a higher level. While jews are generally law-abiding, at least at the lower level of rampant violent criminality, their cunning in gaining control of higher-level institutions does them well. Their use of “lawfare” (passing laws that benefit jews and are detrimental to gentile whites) are one major way they destroy societies. Using our own institutions to destroy our white societies is their “stock in trade”. Not only that, financial crimes, swindles, and outright theft and extortion are a hallmark of jewish criminal behavior. This is all spelled out in their talmud, which encourages jews to swindle the “goyim”, since “goyim” are considered to be no better than livestock, created only to serve the jew”.

    Not only that, but jews routinely flout the “civil-rights (for some)” laws and “fair housing” laws that they push for everyone but themselves. A good exampl of this is the “jews-only” community of Kiryas Joel, among others in New York state. If you are not jewish, you cannot purchase or rent property in Kiryas Joel )so much for “fair housing” laws), nor can you send your children to the “jews-only” “public schools. As discriminatory to non-jews as these jews are, thy have no problem taking”public assistance” funds while running massive swindles themselves.

    All one has to do is look at the so-called “civil-rights (for some)” laws that are used as a bludgeon in order to push forced race-mixing as well as the abolition of “freedom of association”, but only for gentile whites. These laws were formulated and put in place by jews.

    Almost every civil rights worker in the great push for black (civil-rights (for some) was a left-wing communist bolshevik jew. Ther black charges (actually “pets”) were too stupid to see that they were being “used” to suborn civil society-the sole purpose of the so-called “civil-rights (for some)” movement.

    Those of us whites who were opposed to this jewish-run movement had a saying: “Behind every negro, there is a jew”

    I’m sure you are familiar with the term “redneck”, which came from the White slaves and indentured servants getting sunburned necks working the fields. The reality is, that Black slaves tolerated the heat and sun better than the Whites did.
    The problem with the narrative,is that ignores there were White slaves as well. It also ignores the fact that until 1655, virtually all slaves arriving came under indenture. In 1655, a free from indenture Black, Antony Johnson sought to sue two White neighbours over a Black indentured servant, John Casor. Johnson, who owned two White slaves, argued the neighbours pressured him into freeing Casor, and that he should have the right to decide the length of indenture. He won, and John Casor was returned to slavery, presumably for life. The fate of Johnson’s two White slaves is unclear.
    It is obvious, that from 1619 to 1655, Blacks and Whites were treated in the same manner. They were freed after some length of indenture, and given land.
    If a Black slave owner hadn’t been so mean spirited, there is no evidence to suggest that the pre-1655 practice of freeing slaves after indenture, would not have continued. As with most business opportunities, the Jews were quick to see how the ruling could be exploited. White slavery and indenture began to fade as the Black slave-for-life business grew. Not all Blacks post 1655, continued to be freed after indenture, nor were all Whites.
    What has happened, is that chattel slavery has been replaced by wage slavery, and it affects Blacks and Whites, just as the pre-1655 slavery did.

    As someone who has read a lot of books and memoirs about the American Civil War, you’re incorrect about the elite shirking the fight. Many sons of wealthy planters fought in Civil War battles. They had a tendency to gravitate towards artillery and cavalry units, and they tended to be young officers instead of privates. Robert E. Lee, for example, had three sons in the Southern army. He was quite typical of the elites of his time in this.

    It was common practice in the South in the pre-war era for sons of elite slave-owning families to go to military academies. Why? Because their fathers thought it was a good idea for a young man who would be inheriting a slave plantation to learn the art of military command so he could run the plantation, and because Southerners respected men with a military background. Men with military backgrounds in the South naturally rose to take charge of society, and the elites thought this type of schooling was the best and most sensible they could provide for their sons.

    When the Civil War broke out, there were so many Southern graduates of military academies (e.g. West Point, University of Virginia, the Citadel, as well as a whole string of private military-themed high-schools), that the rapidly expanding Southern army was immediately able to fill its mid-tier officer positions, such as lieutenant, captain, and major, with these graduates. By contrast, the North had few graduates from these places and had serious trouble finding officers for mid-tier positions. The North had to develop these officers by the use of schooling during the training period of the war, and the learn-the-hard-way-by doing method.

    One very important reason why the North stumbled around a lot losing most of its early Civil War battles is because they had a mostly untrained officer corps fighting against a trained officer corps in the South. Eventually, the North trained and weeded enough that they were able to win, but it took them four years. If Northerners had bothered sent their sons to military academies, they would have won the war sooner.

    ” Most of his political rhetoric upheld the idea that America was a white man’s country and that blacks could not be full citizens.”

    If one takes the trouble to read a book such as Frederick Law Olmstead’s The Cotton Kingdom, one will see how vexing the issue was of what to do with slaves. Olmstead, traveling for months at a time throughout the antebellum South, on horseback. He was no sissy: dependent on finding a place to sleep at farms that might be ten miles apart; that is, if turned down in one spot he would have to ride sometimes 20 to 30 miles farther to find a bed for himself and fodder for his horse. He had lengthy discussions with all whom he met, including with many slaves. He describes the degraded existence of the slaves, degredation that affected them physically and mentally. The stultifying work; the lack of proper food; the heat; the travail. The slave system also degraded whites and the whole labor system of the South, of which Olmstead provides ample detailed evidence. He was working as a journalist for the New York Times. It was reasonable to wonder how people in this degraded, uneducated, antisocial state could become citizens overnight.

    Many Southerners Olmstead talked to wanted to get rid of the slave system, but they couldn’t figure out how to do it. What would actually happen to the slaves? Yes they had been totally oppressed, and thus were not capable of functioning in any kind of “modern” society. The South itself was not a “modern” society by any stretch of the idea. Furthermore it was clear to any intelligent observer that whites simply would not accept ex-slaves in their society. This was a fact that would-be emancipators had to confront. I think one has to acknowledge that they were right. After fighting the Civil War the North did not have the political will nor the capacity to enforce equality for slaves on the South. Lincoln foresaw this. In twenty-twenty hindsight it is easy to decry that idea of sending freed slaves to colonies of their own in Africa. But at the time to many thoughtful people it looked like the best alternative for everyone—especially for a “reunited” country.

    I highly recommend Omstead’s book to all those who aspire to understand the situation in the antebellum South. He is an astute observer and analyst. He also cites many written records of the day, such as statistics kept by the states, census figures, contemporary journals, etc. The problems seemed insoluble to Olmstead and many others in the South, including plantation owners, who, whether they were racists or not, clearly saw the systemic weaknesses of slavery as an economic system and wanted to end it.

    “Two-thirds of the south’s fighting men deserted during the course of the war.”

    One of my principal take-aways from reading Olmstead’s The Cotton Kingdom was that it was inconceivable to me how the South that he described managed to raise a fighting force at all. First of all, there just were not that many people spread throughout the mostly rural South. Second, the whites in many areas were in almost as bad shape, socially and physically, as the slaves. It is a miracle that the Confederate Army put up the fight that it did, if Olmstead’s descriptions of the actual circumstances of most Southern whites is to be credited. It may be that hatred of blacks and slaves was the only source of the fire that kept them on their feet.

    The Trxican revolution against Mexico had a lot to do with slaves belonging to the American settlers who moved to Texas.

    Slavery was always illegal in Mexico since Queen Isabella abolished slavery in all Spanish territories and colonies in the 1490s. There were some blacks in Mexico but they they weren’t slaves.

    By the 1820s American settlers were bringing in so many black slaves that Mexico passed another law outlawing slavery in 1827. I don’t know what if anything the government did to enforce the law. There was no anti slavery crusade, just a law re enforcing a 330 year old existing law.

    But the new law abolishing slavery was a major reason for the Texican revolution. And after Texas became its own independent country the Texans brought in a lot of slaves and Texas has suffered from the Black Plague ever since.

    A point to consider… an America with unprepared-for-rule blacks in a manufactured, but unsustainable primacy will not necessarily be friendly to Jews and most certainly not to apartheid Israel.

    Since, in a close mixture of various races, it is better to get along harmoniously always seeking a workable, common ground, rather than finding myriad ways to foster discord, if the present trend of official demonization of whites and their culture continues, whites will either survive by physical separation or will be subjugated leading to their eventual elimination. The USA will pass from a main factor driving world history into the dustbin of impoverished countries populated by first, a type characterized by a rapidly failing South Africa, on its way to sliding into the inescapable, utter destitution of Zimbabwe.

    Since the whites and their western culture, values, and rule of law will apparently not be defended by its elites, further and rapid desocialization can be expected. A culture that will not defend itself cannot survive as formerly recognized or intended. However, the future, elite-intended trajectory is less than clear as to its actual destination, because it is far from certain how the increasing numbers of Hispanics and Muslims in this country will respond to this societal transmogrification. Also, there will hopefully (likely?) be a point where a new, white leadership begins a process of active self-defense.

    Since almost the entire Third World peoples have actual or intended desires to immigrate to America, while very few Americans have any intention of emigrating elsewhere, it is obvious that residence in this country is still desirable and still offers worthy principles and practices. Those who are trying to change this nation into an ephemeral, collective Utopia, should – but will not – consider that its destruction may not yield the socialistic paradise of equality, freedom, and brotherhood as advocated by Trotsky, but rather, a soul-draining Dystopia , more along the lines envisioned by Hobbes, where man’s life is solitary, short, and brutish.

    For almost 150 years the United States has been conducting an interesting experiment. The subjects of the experiment: black people and working-class whites.

    The hypothesis to be tested: Can a people taken from the jungles of Africa and forced into slavery be fully integrated as citizens in a majority white population?

    The whites were descendants of Europeans who had created a majestic civilization. The former slaves had been tribal peoples with no written language and virtually no intellectual achievements. Acting on a policy that was not fair to either group, the government released newly freed black people into a white society that saw them as inferiors. America has struggled with racial discord ever since.

    Decade after decade the problems persisted but the experimenters never gave up. They insisted that if they could find the right formula the experiment would work, and concocted program after program to get the result they wanted. They created the Freedman’s Bureau, passed civil rights laws, tried to build the Great Society, declared War on Poverty, ordered race preferences, built housing projects, and tried midnight basketball.

    Their new laws intruded into people’s lives in ways that would have been otherwise unthinkable. They called in National Guard troops to enforce school integration. They outlawed freedom of association. Over the protests of parents, they put white children on buses and sent them to black schools and vice versa. They tried with money, special programs, relaxed standards, and endless handwringing to close the “achievement gap.” To keep white backlash in check they began punishing public and even private statements on race. They hung up Orwellian public banners that commanded whites to “Celebrate Diversity!” and “Say No to Racism.” Nothing was off limits if it might salvage the experiment.

    Some thought that what W.E.B. Du Bois called the Talented Tenth would lead the way for black people. A group of elite, educated blacks would knock down doors of opportunity and show the world what blacks were capable of. There is a Talented Tenth. They are the black Americans who have become entrepreneurs, lawyers, doctors and scientists. But ten percent is not enough. For the experiment to work, the ten percent has to be followed by a critical mass of people who can hold middle-class jobs and promote social stability. That is what is missing.

    Through the years, too many black people continue to show an inability to function and prosper in a culture unsuited to them. Detroit is bankrupt, the south side of Chicago is a war zone, and the vast majority of black cities all over America are beset by degeneracy and violence. And blacks never take responsibility for their failures. Instead, they lash out in anger and resentment.

    Across the generations and across the country, as we have seen in Detroit, Watts, Newark, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, and now Ferguson, rioting and looting are just one racial incident away. The white elite would tell us that this doesn’t mean the experiment has failed. We just have to try harder. We need more money, more time, more understanding, more programs, and more opportunities.

    But nothing changes no matter how much money is spent, no matter how many laws are passed, no matter how many black geniuses are portrayed on TV, and no matter who is president. Some argue it’s a problem of “culture,” as if culture creates people’s behavior instead of the other way around. Others blame “white privilege.”

    But since 1965, when the elites opened America’s doors to the Third World, immigrants from Asia and India-people who are not white, not rich, and not connected have quietly succeeded. While the children of these people are winning spelling bees and getting top scores on the SAT, black “youths” are committing half the country’s violent crime-crime, which includes viciously punching random white people on the street for the thrill of it that has nothing to do with poverty.

    The experiment has failed. Not because of culture, or white privilege, or racism. The fundamental problem is that white people and black people are different. They differ intellectually and temperamentally. These differences result in permanent social incompatibility.

    Our rulers don’t seem to understand just how tired their white subjects are with this experiment. They don’t understand that white people aren’t out to get black people; they are just exhausted with them. They are exhausted by the social pathologies, the violence, the endless complaints, and the blind racial solidarity, the bottomless pit of grievances, the excuses, and the reflexive animosity.

    The elites explain everything with “racism,” and refuse to believe that white frustration could soon reach the boiling point.,.,

  110. We can’t fully understand the NYT-1619 project without taking into account the Jewish Factor. Jewish Hegemonists at NYT are pushing this mainly to prop up Jewish Supremacist control of the US. It is a roundabout way of justifying and perpetuating Jewish globalist imperialism & Jewish control of guilt-ridden white cucks. In 1776, the British were imperial overlords over the American colonies. Back then, ‘Americans’ were subjects of the empire though, being white, had more rights and privileges than non-white subjects. White Americans existed mainly to serve and support the empire. The British could foresee how the American colonies would keep expanding and then it was only a matter of time before Americans would outnumber the British. Thus, in order for the empire to remain intact, the British would have to preserve their authority over a larger number of White Americans as loyal colonists. This authority had to be moral and emotional as well as military because it’d be difficult to maintain control over a growing entity with brute force alone. It’s like a lion or bear trainer needs something more than fear to keep the beast under control. The beast must be made to FEEL that the human, though weaker and smaller, is its emotional master deserving of respect.

    British minority-elites sought indefinite domination over American majority-masses. But White Americans, at least one-third of them who supported the Revolution, developed an independent streak and identity of their own. They decided to break free of the empire. It was the first case of America First. And so, the British lost the empire(though, of course, the French played a key role). One can argue til the cows come home whether the Revolutionaries were in the right or wrong. Many historians think British taxation was valid given the huge costs of the French and Indian Wars, which was triggered by colonial demands by the way. Also, the destinies of Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, none of which fought for independence, suggest that the British would have been fair, just, and humane rulers over the American colonists had there been no Revolution. But still, the American Revolution, justified or not, was led by men of great talent, intelligence, and vision. And even though British subjects of Canada and Australia came to enjoy freedoms and rights much like those of white Americans, freedom in America had a romantic element because of the founding myth of resistance and liberation. Freedom was granted to white Canadians and Australians, whereas freedom was WON by white Americans, and that made a huge psychological difference.

    At any rate, Jews are nervous about the rise of white populism all around the world. Jews are most worried about the US, the center of the Empire of Judea, or EOJ. Indeed, under the current globalist regimen, US isn’t so much the sole superpower as the main aircraft carrier & bank of the Empire of Judea that pan across the continents. Jews do have their own nation in Israel, but their real power rests in American Power or, more accurately, in the interconnected-ness of the globo-homo empire. Jewish power rests on hegemonism. If all white nations were to go primarily into nationalist-populist mode, the majority in each nation would ask, “What’s in it for us?” Poles would put Poland first, Hungarians would put Hungary first, Germans would put Germany first, French would put France first, Brits would put Britain first, and etc. That means the primary goal of each white nation would be to serve the interests of its majority population than pander to the elitist-supremacist-minoritarian demands of Jewish globalists.
    And so, Jewish hegemonists today are like the British Imperialists of old. Just like the British dreaded the rise of national consciousness in the American colonies and demands for national independence/liberation among Asian-Indians, Jewish imperialist-supremacists fear sentiments such as ‘America First’ or Russia First, Hungary First, Poland First, Britain First, and etc. Jews want all white folks in all white nations to chant ‘Jews First’, ‘Israel First’, and etc. And of course, AIPAC, ADL, and other Jewish groups are hard at work pushing for Jewish and Zionist interests. But Jews fear that this can lead to a backlash if they push too far. If everything turns into a matter of ‘honor Jews’, ‘serve Jews’, ‘obey Jews’, ‘worship Jews’, ‘apologize to Jews’, and etc., then white goyim may get tired of the shtick or, at the very least, begin to murmur, “Wow, Jews really do control everything.” So, Jews seized on seemingly non-Jewish issues to push what is essentially a Jewish Interest. Globo-Homo-mania is a prime example of this. World Queery is just a proxy of World Jewry. Jews have been its main funders. Jewish-Homo alliance is close, not least because top homo movers and shakers are Jewish. Homo elite-minority supremacism of the neo-aristo variety complements Jewish elite-minority globalist supremacism. Also, homos and trannies turned leftism from Mayday to Gayday, thereby emphasizing the demands of urban haute elitists over the needs of middle and working classes. Jews and homos easily work hand-in-hand because both are overly represented in certain key elite institutions and industries.

    [MORE]

    With the 1619 Project, Jews are merely using blacks in the same way. By pushing the narrative that American National Independence sprung from a pro-slavery agenda, Jews are slyly arguing in favor of empire/imperialism over nation/nationalism. In other words, American colonies would have been more just and humane IF they had remained within the empire. It’s like Jews rail against America First and American Nationalism on grounds that the US, as sole superpower, must maintain the New World Order… or else the world will blow up!! The US must embrace its neo-imperial destiny. Funny that nations like Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Ukraine were wrecke precisely because of US intervention, but never mind. Jews are in imperialist mode. They now control the US that controls the EU and UK. (UK would be better with Brexit from Zionist-American Empire than from the EU.) Canada and Mexico are mere puppet-extensions of the US, and Japan and the so-called ‘tigers’ are little more than dogs of the US. China is independent, but it too has become overly reliant on US markets. Still, China, Russia, and Iran represent a solid bloc of nations that have pushed back against the empire. Jews almost had Russia in the 90s but lost it when Vladimir Putin consolidated power, and Jewish imperialists have been plotting all sorts of machinations to turn Russia into just another globo-homo colony.

    Though Jews gained the greatest success in America and developed a certain sentimentality about the America as myth, they never cared for America as an independent and sovereign nation. The most famous Jewish American poem by Emma Lazarus defines America not a self-contained nation but one that opens its arms to other Jews(though Lazarus cleverly whitewashed her Judeo-Centrism with talk of immigrants-in-general, the wretched refuse and blah blah). As Jews were scattered across many nations, as Jews in America wanted to bring more Jewish Immigrants, and as Jews around the world sought to forge a vast network of Jewish Power, the notion of an autonomous and independent American nation was ultimately anathema to the grand Jewish plan. Jewish Power could operate more effectively in a world defined by American Imperialist Power.
    Of course, American nation itself had developed as part of an empire, and the Westward expansion had the features of imperialism, colonization, and hegemony, though completed easily enough because the native savage ‘Indians’ were relatively few and far between. Wherever Anglo-Americans expanded, Jews found new opportunities to sink in their claws. Lands taken by whites from the Indians could lead to real estate bonanzas for Jews. Would there be Hollywood in Los Angeles if Anglos hadn’t taken California from Mexico? In Jewish eyes, Anglo-Americans were a marvel because (1) despite their ‘racism’, they considered Jews as fellow whites (2) despite their Christianity, they were far less ‘antisemitic’ than Old World whites, not least because many White Americans considered America as a kind of New Jerusalem and prided themselves for their relative lack of religious prejudice (3) they practiced Rule of Law that, while not perfect, was fairer than anything else in the world and (4) they were an enterprising and capable people who opened up new frontiers for Jewish opportunity. Anglos were useful to Jews also but Anglo-Americans were even better for their relative lack of class snobbery and greater directness, which suited Jewish interests as Jews tended to be pushy, brazen, and vulgar, traits that might be disdained in Europe but rather admired in rags-to-riches America of “Go West, Young Man”.
    Now, if Jews were merely appreciative & grateful and latched onto White America as the best of all possible worlds, they might have joined with the American Nation. But despite the value they saw in Anglo-Americans, their main loyalty was still with other Jews around the world. Also, despite Anglo heritage and Anglo-American dynamism, Jews still regarded themselves as a superior, wiser, deeper, more profound, and ancient people. Consider the exchange in the Western movie CIMARRON(based on a novel by Jewish authoress Edna Ferber).

    A white character says: “One of my ancestors was a signer of the Declaration of Independence.”
    A Jewish character says: “That’s all right. A relative of mine, a fellow named Moses, wrote the Ten Commandments.”

    So, across time and space, Jews can never respect any goy nation as self-contained. Ultimately, they all exist to play a role in the realization of the Jewish World Hegemony. Goy concept of time and space is too petty for Jews. For Jews, ancient history is still relevant to future history. When Jews turn back the clock from 1776 to 1619, they are really wink-wink turning the clock as far back as 1619 B.C. or 1776 B.C. Jews seek to control the boundaries of ‘America’ and its time-frame. So, according to Jewish globalism, America is all of the globo-homo-shlomo empire. Americans have a right to invade and occupy the Middle East(as extension of the empire), and non-whites all over the world have the right to come to America. Indeed, anyone who wants to come to America, legally or illegally, is an ‘American’ or a ‘dreamer’ according to Jewish Political Geography.
    As for the historical time frame of America, by pushing the 1619 Project, Jews are effectively saying WE get to decide the real timeline of America. And why not? Jews get to decide what marriage is by legalizing and celebrating ‘gay marriage’. Jews now even decide what Christianity is, which explains why so many churches now fly the ‘gay’ flag. Jews lead, goyim follow. Jews got Big Think, goyim got Small Think. Jews are prophets, goyim are props. And with their control of mass media, Jews effectively plant our memories. In BLADE RUNNER, we learn Rachel’s childhood memory is really an implant. When it comes to historical remembrance, our collective memory is implanted by the mass media with its selective collage of images and sounds, idols and narratives.
    Now, if goyim were to awaken to the nature of this machination, it’d be much harder to fool them. But too many people still haven’t figured out a way to see through the curtain at the man behind the Wizard(of Oz). Once the spell is broken, it’s broken for good. It’s like once a kid realizes that adults lied to him about Santa Claus, no amount of pro-Santa propaganda can make him believe again. Once you realize that a magic trick is bogus, no amount of new magic tricks, however dazzling and impressive, can fool you they’re real. Even if you don’t know how it’s done, you know it’s only a trick. Likewise, if people realized what kind of people control the media and how they operate and why, they would much less likely be fooled. So, the first step toward understanding the man behind the curtain of the 1619 Project is to smoke out its Jewish Supremacist angle. Indeed, isn’t it odd that the 1619 Project doesn’t have much to say about Jews despite the fact that Jews played a huge role in the slave trade, especially in South America that took in many more slaves. (By the way, if black slaves = prosperity, shouldn’t Brazil be 10x richer than the US since it took in 10x the slaves? And since Africa had black slaves forever before the white man ever landed on the continent, shouldn’t it be one big giant Wakanda? Funny how slavery turned out so profitable under management of Anglos but not so much under others.) Jews played a key financial role in the Southern Slave economy, and most Jews supported the Confederacy. What does NYT have to say about that?
    Also, it’s more than a bit amusing that slavery is made out to be America’s greatest ‘sin’ when we’ve been led to believe there is nothing more evil than genocide. After all, doesn’t the Shoah have a special place in tragic historiography because it was a case of genocide? Slaves at least get fed and are allowed to live. Now, if genocide is far worse than slavery, then it seems NYT should focus mainly on the 20,000 B.C. Project to commemorate the true beginning of America via the arrival of proto-Asiatic hunter-gatherers from across the Bering Sea. But Indians who suffered something like a ‘genocide’ are given short shrift by NYT. That gives the game away that NYT is concerned less with morality and justice than power and control. That’s the first lesson we must take from any moral hysteria generated by Jewish Power. Jewish morality is selective in service to Jewish interests, not principled universal justice. Indeed, the very Jews who bitched about bad ole Joe McCarthy have been pushing the most insane paranoia about Russia. They very Jews who decry the Nazis have forged an alliance with Nazi-esque organizations in Ukraine. We saw from the Syrian War that Jewish Morality is purely about “Is it good for Jews?” So, Jews had no problems with Obama/Hillary pulling strings to turn Syria upside down, but when Trump muttered something about pulling troops out, Jews in media were up in arms about all those poor poor Kurds.
    Same goes with selective narratives about blacks and Indians in the US. Or Palestinians for that matter. Why doesn’t NYT have a 1881 Project about how the first Jewish immigration to Palestine set the grounds for Nakba pogroms, thereby paving the way for endless Middle East conflicts? Why hasn’t NYT hired a single Palestinian-American journalist in the name of Diversity of views and as a voice of the oppressed Palestinians? To the Jews, the American Indian Narrative is just too inconvenient for their globalist control of the world. Why? The fate of American Indians suggest Mass Immigration = Genocide or Replacement of Native folks. Given what mass colonization followed by mass immigration did to the native indigenous folks of the Americas, Jews obviously don’t want to go there. To be sure, there was a time when certain Jewish Leftists in the 1960s made an issue of the American Indians because Diversity then wasn’t the mantra it has become today. Back then, Jews sought to associate ‘genocide’ of the American Indians with what the Nazis did. But since then, people are more likely to associate the fate of American Indians with the effects of mass immigration. Immigration = Genocide, thus undermining Emma Lazarus as the voice of justice. Also, more than a few people have drawn parallels between what whites did to American Indians and what Zionist colonist-imperialists did to the Palestinians. Besides, the ‘genocide’ of Indians might compete with the Shoah narrative, especially because unlike the Jewish Tragedy, the mass deaths of Indians happened here in this country — Shoah is a Jealous Genocide and there shall be no other genocides before it. And so, slavery has become a bigger injustice than genocide in the American Moral Narrative. If it’s inconvenient to Jews, just never mind.

    At the very least, Jews might be less obnoxious if white people shot back. After all, contrary to the Jewish Narrative of the Tribe always having been hapless victims of Christian goyim, Jews played a sizable role in Western Imperialism. Jewish financiers bankrolled many ventures of conquests, plunder, and slavery. Jews were the main sellers of opium to the Chinese. Jewish merchants sold guns and ammo to whites to kill Indians with. Jews ran much of Southern finance. And Jewish agents, managers, and moguls exploited and ripped off countless black singers, athletes, and other talents. Also, the increasing tension between Jews and blacks in New York suggests many Jews regard blacks as a nuisance at best and thugs at worst while many blacks regard Jews as super-white people who grab all the loot. No wonder Jews at NYT are pushing the 1619 Project to distract people from the very real problems between Jews and blacks. Of course, the problem is made worse by the relatively poorer religious Jewish community. Whereas most secular Lib Jews are affluent enough to live safely apart from blacks and work in institutions/industries that don’t deal directly with them, there’s the Hasidim and certain Orthodox communities who live in proximity with blacks. These Jews manipulate real estate to squeeze blacks out of their historic neighborhoods. Also, they dislike blacks because Negroes commit lots of crime and act wild and crazy. Unlike secular Lib Jews in the 50s and 60s who made their money and joined the White Flight or Jew Flew from blackening areas, these ultra-religious Jews seem stuck in their ghettos(and in a ghetto-mentality) that keeps them in closer proximity with wild and crazy blacks. But all such goes against the BS narrative about Noble Negroes and Holy Hebrews in a sacred alliance against white ‘racists’ and ‘nazis’. So, Jews have to keep pulling out Emmett Till stories and now this 1619 circus out of their arse to sustain the illusion of Jews and blacks united against Evil Whites.

    Of course, reasons as to why Jews favor blacks over American Indians have to do with numbers, profitability, idolatry, and potency. There are many more blacks than American Indians, and so black concerns get more hearing. But then, why do blacks get more attention than ‘Hispanics’ who are now bigger in number? Also, don’t ‘Hispanic’ browns have a tragic history that is even worse than black history? Historians say the arrival of Europeans led to the demise of over 90% of the natives, and this was especially tragic in what became Latin-America as something like 55 million out of 60 million perished, mostly of diseases. Also, unlike blacks and yellows who still have their own nations, browns of Latin America lost possession of their ancient lands forever under the Diversity-regimen. Indeed, it’s telling that the #1 issue in Latin American politics is whether to go with ‘Latino’ or ‘Latinx’ instead of asking why the brown folks of Mexico, Central America, and South America should be referred to as ‘Latino’ or ‘Hispanic’ when they have identities and histories going back many thousands of years prior to the arrival of whites. Even with ‘Hispanic’ numbers eclipsing black numbers, the Jewish Hegemonic Narrative is fixated on blacks than on browns. Now, one might say it’s because black history is American History whereas brown history isn’t(until relatively recently), but then, why does the US make such a big deal of Zionism, Israel, Shoah, and European ‘antisemitism’ when those are NOT part of American history?
    Again, it all comes down to “Is it good for Jews?” While black numbers matter a lot, they are also profitable to Jewish merchant-kings of sports, music industry, and entertainment. Blacks, being better athletes and louder singers, gain top slots in athletics and popular culture, and Jewish moguls rake in billions in profits by recruiting and promoting blacks. Black success in pop culture and sports have imbued the black race with power of idolatry that has great sway among whites, even conservatives. So many whites revere and near-worship blacks as awesome demigods. So, naturally, Jews understand that blacks, as the god-hero-race, have far greater sway among white folks spellbound by black awesomeness in sports, music, and sexuality. Psycho-spiritually, people tend to feel most guilty when they feel they’ve wronged something superior. It’s like Americans are more outraged by a white hunter killing a lion than a skunk(or by a Japanese vessel killing a whale than a slaughter house killing a million pigs). Lions and whales have iconic power, skunks and pigs don’t. If Jews tried to make whites feel guilty about American Indians or short brown people from south of the border, it wouldn’t be as effective. Even if white minds were made to consciously understand that red folks and brown folks suffered a lot at the hands of whitey, something within the white psyche wouldn’t feel all that tragic. Even as they think, “what a tragic people”, they’d feel, “a bunch of mediocrities who deserved to lose.”
    Granted, the tragedy of the Indian once had greater traction when (1) the American Narrative was controlled by Anglo-Americans (2) there was still the memory of Indians as tough worthy foes — in that regard the American Western did the Red Man a favor by featuring him as a fearless and fearsome hunter-warrior — and (3) American values were more stoic and inhibited, thereby more admiring of the Indian temperament. As Anglo-America was forged from confrontations between white settlers and Indian tribes, a certain respect was due to the people who were here first and put up a brave fight. Also, when the making of America was still fresh in the minds of Americans(and when blacks had yet to reach domination in sports), the image of hunter-warrior prowess was owned by the American Indians. Even Indians who’d savagely killed white folks, such as Geronimo, came to be included in the pantheon of American Mythology. They were deemed worthy warriors who fought for their land, culture, and honor.
    But that was then. Anglo-American narratives have fallen by the wayside, replaced by Jewish-favored ones. Especially with the fading of the Western genre, most Americans have no more sense of Indians than of Cowboys. And the American Popular imagination has been taken over by black rappers, black athletes, and handful of whites who aspire to sing black or just hang on in sports where blacks rule. Jews understand that Progressivism isn’t enough. It supplies (self)righteous vibes and a set of ideas, but ideology isn’t enough to get people excited. Jews understand the power of idolatry, and so, they combine Progress with Prowess. Progressivism is about the Idea(usually supplied by Jews), and Prowess-ivism is about the Idol(usually supplied by blacks as top-dog-stars of sports, pop music, and sexuality). In other words, it’s not enough to bait ‘white guilt’ but to switch on ‘white thrill’ that, esp since the time of Elvis Presley, has centered on acting the White Negro. So, Jews understand that blackness has the potency to make whites cower to black power. Even whites who roll their eyes at talk of Progress tune into the Superbowl to drool all over Black Prowess, which means White Pro-Wuss. Now, if American Indians were the toughest race while most blacks were like Gary Coleman or Emmanuel Lewis, the current Narrative might work differently, but blacks dominate the idols. It’s like what Al Pacino’s Schwarz says to DiCaprio’s character in ONCE UPON A TIME… IN HOLLYWOOD, “… playing punching bag to every swinging dick…, that’s gonna have a psychological effect on how the audience perceives you… Down goes you, down goes your career as leading man.” In other words, the Image matters. When black men began to beat up white men in sports and took over as symbols of manhood, it had a profound impact on mass psychology and perception of Americanism. It wasn’t just a matter of black individuals beating white individuals but blacks as new idols smashing the white idols of manhood. Of course, cucks like Ken Burns and Quentin Tarantino are okay with this and even celebrate it, but its effect on the white race has been far more damaging than knocking down Confederate statues. (More than not, 1619 Project is less about blacks as founders than blacks as idol-champs that came much later. Having come to dominate American Idolatry late in the game, there is a retroactive effort to make blacks crucial from the very beginning.) Indeed, if white men dominated sports but lost all Confederate statues, they would be in a much better position. Though ONCE UPON A TIME… IN HOLLYWOOD has almost no blacks and the violence is between whites vs whites(and a bit of pitter-patter between Brad Pitt’s character and ‘Bruce Lee’), it is cognizant of the power of idols and how fantasy idols serve as compensation for defeat in reality. When whites lost in boxing, they looked to Rocky who was fantasy-champion in the movies. And yellows looked to Bruce Lee as fantasy hero who could beat up not only Japanese but big Russians and towering Negroes. Tarantino, no stranger to fantasy and ludicrous violence(esp in KILL BILL and INGLORIOUS BASTERDS), seems in ONCE UPON A TIME… IN HOLLYWOOD to be more thoughtful about the dichotomy between real violence and movie violence. Anyway, when whites lost to blacks in sports and felt threatened by black music, they looked to white heroes in movies and adopted black music to create White Rock. That way, whites maintained the semblance of domination. But now, even movies are awash in Jungle Fever, and black rappers took over as top musical acts. Whites are totally under cultural colonization of blacks. Blackness has potency over whites(and even over NBA-worshiping Chinese), and this is NYT uses blackness to toy and mess with not only White Guilt but White Thrill.

    On the matter of black labor building Early America, there is much truth to this, but what’s appalling is blacks want all the credit, like they want all the grammies, as if all plaques must be for blacks. There were plenty of white farmers in the North and South as well, and they did grueling labor day in and day out. And most factory workers and coal-miners were white. Also, if black labor, especially slave labor, has such a magical impact on the economy, why didn’t the countless slave economies of Africa result in growth and development? It’s been said slavery began in Africa 10,000 years ago, but blacks seemed not to have gained much by using black slaves. Besides, slavery was common all over Arabia, India, and East Asia. Yet, it didn’t lead to development of modern economies. And black slavery in Latin America failed to produce first-rank economies. In contrast, Canada-Australia-New-Zealand became successful economies without black slaves. And if black slavery was key to the rise of modern economy in the US, how did the Germans, Japanese, Swedes, and rest of them manage to build prosperous modern economies without black slaves?
    So, while it’s true that black labor played an important role in southern agrarian economies in Early America, it seems absurd to insist that it was THE most important factor. If America hadn’t brought over a single slave, its economy would surely have been slower to develop, but it would have been better in the long run as the US would have averted the Civil War, problems of racial tension, black violence, and black pathology that turned Detroit from a city of the future into a city of Jafric lunacy. And look at black blight in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Chicago, St. Louis, and etc. Blacks-in-America proved to be a short-term gain, long-term loss. Imagine Detroit without blacks. It’d be a first-rank city. But blacks messed up Detroit worse than atomic bomb did Hiroshima, at least in the long run. Afrotomic Bomb is the most horrible thing in the world.
    Furthermore, let’s consider South Africa. Why did its economy come to be bigger than all of black Africa combined during the Apartheid Era? Because whites were the ruling and guiding hand over black labor. Blacks can provide labor but don’t have much to offer in terms of brains, vision, organization, or persistence. Black-ruled African nations had as black labor as South Africa or even more, but they weren’t able to get anything done because blacks made incompetent leaders, owners, governors, and managers. Indeed, the fact that all those black Africans want to scramble for Europe and live under whites is proof enough that black labor can’t do anything on its own.

    At any rate, an economy isn’t just about labor and physical power. All European and Asian nations had horses and cows, but certain European nations did far more with them than others did. Horses and cows surely played a very important role in the development of the American economy. Horse power facilitated travel and communication(prior to the telegraph) and cow power plowed the earth. But horses and cows on their own couldn’t have built an economy. It all depended on how they were used by humans. And the same goes for black labor. Africa had plenty of black labor and lots of slavery, but Africans never came up with a good way to use black physicality except to beat bongo drums, chuck spears at hippos, and run like a mofo. And Hispanic and Jewish slave-holders in Latin America were far less efficient than white American slave-masters. Given the numbers of black slaves in Brazil, Colombia, and Venezuela, those nations should have been first-rank economies if we follow the logic of the 1619 Project. It was White Americans who came up with more efficient(and humane) ways to use black slave labor for maximum results. Whites came up with the Whips-and-Watermelons methodology of Governance over Negroes. If Negroes acted all jive-ass and uppity, they got the whip. But if they picked cotton and called the white man ‘massuh’, they got an extra helping of watermelons. In Latin American nations, there was too much whip and not enough melons. And as whites were smaller as share of the population or mixed-in-race with native browns in Latin America, there was a more confused identity and sense of purpose among the owners and elites.

    None of this is to diminish the contribution of black labor to the development of Early America, but it has to be seen in a proper context. Black labor was efficient in America ONLY BECAUSE whites knew how to harness its power. Also, one of the features of Western Civilization, especially since the rise of capitalism, was the constant advancement in science and technology, and this was entirely a white thing. Did blacks invent or make the ships that sailed the oceans or the cotton gin? And did blacks invent the machines that finally rendered slavery outdated and burdensome? But blacks are blind to all this because their jungle nature tends to be more aggressive, abrasive, self-centered, proud, and full of jive. This is why stoking black vanity is like serving more alcohol to a wino or adding more gasoline to the fire. The natural megalomania of blacks need deflating, not inflating. Of course, Jews inflate black megalomania against whites, and this is why whites should react in kind and inflate black megalomania against Jews and point out all the bad things Jews have done to blacks. But then, Jews will whine about ‘antisemitism’. They encourage blacks to hate whites, but whites better not encourage blacks to hate Jews. As whites are such worthless cucks at the feet of Jews, they will go on suffering this humiliation instead of manning up and fighting back in kind.

    As for blacks who say their struggle helped to improve American Democracy, this is both true and untrue. In a way, there was genuine inspiration in the American struggle to end slavery and recognize blacks as fellow humans and Americans. And there was genuine greatness to the Civil Rights Movement. But wouldn’t American Democracy have been better IF not a single black had been brought to the Americas? There would have been no slavery, no war between the states, and no ugly racial tensions. And blacks wouldn’t have suffered as slaves in America and would have no reason to bitch endlessly about ‘honkeys’. After all, European nations evolved into democracies just the same WITHOUT racial problems. Wasn’t it more pleasant for them than for Americans who had a huge racial challenge to surmount? Did Australian democracy suffer for the lack of blacks? If anything, recent African immigration to Australia seems to have resulted in all manner of crime and pathology.
    American democracy would have evolved faster and more naturally without blacks. After all, the reason the North advanced faster in most areas than the South was because it was all white and felt more secure to welcome change. If anything, blacks held back the advancement of democracy because of racial tensions. Also, the problem wasn’t entirely with whites. Blacks were not white people with black skin. Racial differences are real. Blacks were naturally the meaner, more aggressive, more thuggish, more psychopathic, and less intelligent race. They posed a real threat to white security and safety. Though KKK was excessive in its actions, there was reason for white fright over blacks. The black rampage since the Civil Rights Movement of the 60s is a testament to this fact. Though white nationalists or white advocates fixate on IQ differences between whites and blacks, that is the least important factor behind race problems. Far more crucial is the Song-Dong-Strong or SDS Factor. Black voice has sirenic power over whites, so much so that even after blacks terrorize whites and cause more problems, whites are yet again lulled and seduced by black vocality. Bigger dongs of black men lead to jungle fever and cuckery of white men. And tougher muscles of blacks lead to much criminality and victimization of whites, which is why whites need guns for safety. If whites and blacks were same in everything but intelligence, it would hardly matter. After all, Mexicans are said to be somewhat less intelligent than whites, but as they aren’t tougher or more aggressive than whites, their only problem for whites is demography. Mexicans don’t harm whites physically or threaten white idols or symbols of white prowess.
    It’s often been said Demography Is Destiny, but Supremography also matters. After all, if numbers decide history, why is it that Jews who are only 2% of the US have such total power over the nation? When the US was 89% white Christian and only 2% Jewish, the Law of Demography-Is-Destiny would have secured white rule over Jews. But Jews gained mastery over whites despite their deficiency in numbers. Why? Jews were superior to whites in IQ, stronger in will & personality, larger in vision, and more shameless in deviousness. And why are blacks gaining such prestige, reverence, and power in the West despite being minorities? Blacks are 13% in the US and fewer percentage-wise in Canada and European nations, but they dominate much of the idolatry as athletes, singers, ‘twerking’ skanks, and studs. Also, as Jewish-controlled US academia and media serve as model for all of the West, many whites in Europe look to MLK and Mandela as the premier saint-prophets. As far as Europeans are concerned, they themselves are frigid and frozen Ice People who were thawed and given warmth by Negroes as the sun god(and homos as the ‘rainbow’).

    Anyway, even if the black story added something to the progress of American Democracy, blacks themselves gained higher morality and concept of human rights only through the white man. While blacks, like Asian Indians led by Gandhi, held the Western Moral Mirror up to the Hypocritical White Face that said one thing but did another, the values that they espoused came from whites, not from their own cultures. After all, what was indigenous black African values but oogity-boogity and jungle-jivery. Indeed, look how blacks have been reverting to their true nature once they gained total freedom in the US. Black culture is now about Rap thuggery and ‘twerking’ skank-ass-ho behavior. So, while it’s true that through blacks and other non-whites, the Christian-Enlightenment West became aware of their shortcomings and hypocrisies, it’s no less true that non-whites gained higher values and advanced political morality from contact with whites. Frederick Douglas and MLK didn’t get their ideas from the Dark Continent but from Western Civilization.

    As for blacks claiming cultural ownership over the very civilization that enslaved them, changed their names, and erased their cultures, it seems absurd but is also indicative of how history works. And we see this all across the West. The very blacks who used to yell, “Hey Hey Ho Ho, Western Culture’s Got to Go” are now claiming not only America but Europe as ‘African’ or ‘Always Diverse’. And white cucks are aiding in this: BBC made several shows about past British history with blacks in white roles. Even Finland made a TV movie where a black guy is the national hero who fought the Russians. Blacks realized that the West is too good to let go. Too rich, too advanced, too impressive. But since the West has been white than black, blacks(and their enablers) are altering true history to push the myth that Europe was always multi-racial or that Middle Age Europe wasn’t white.

    But then, didn’t the Germanic barbarians do something similar in adopting the culture and partially even the identity of the very people who’d done so much to conquer, enslave, and kill the Germanics? The Roman Empire at its height invaded Germanic lands and slayed tons of people and enslaved even more. And yet, it was so impressive that many Germanics adopted Roman Imperial identity. Indeed, the myth of Roman Might was such that even after the fall of Rome, various Germanic kings sought to revive it as a Germanic thing. The sackers of Rome claimed to be heirs of Rome. And even though the monotheistic religion of Christianity that arose from Semitic Jews came to destroy the indigenous European pagan cultures in one of the greatest ‘cultural genocides’ ever, the white ‘victims’ of this cultural erasure adopted the New Faith as if it had always been their highest value system. History and humanity are funny that way.

    To be fair to Blacks, the ‘experimenters’ you are talking of were mostly Jews who had not the interests of Black people in mind but the antagonism towards White people.

    The ones who want to keep pushing is further are either

    1. Communist Jews who want to further destroy the fabric of society

    2. Actual Whites who have god intentions and want to help.

    I personally think it would be possible to integrate Black people into American society, it is not possible with racial agitation groups lead by Jews stirring things up though.

    “All men are created equal” is the claim that there are no divine kings. It has nothing to do with race at all. The founders would never have dreamed whites would be so dumbed down that we would make savages citizens.

    However, the future, elite-intended trajectory is less than clear as to its actual destination, because it is far from certain how the increasing numbers of Hispanics and Muslims in this country will respond to this societal transmogrification.

    I would have thought that it was fairly clear. The elite that matters is Jewish, and they haven’t deviated from their project of taking hold of key positions of power in the US.

    Now, directly or indirectly they control most of them, and they’re being used to introduce totalitarianism. The model is Bolshevism, with propaganda, informers, detention without trial, Gulags and a fearful population. Hispanics and Muslims won’t make any difference since they’ll be subject to the same rules – and there won’t be so many of them since they’re unlikely to want to emigrate the this “Progressive” paradise.

    They’ll probably actually want to get out – same as many Anglos, but with residence rules, controlled movements and work passes + closed frontiers, they won’t be able to.

    I like the Lebanese “Vision for Peace” to counter the Steal of the Century over at Moon of Alabama:

    Actually the slave trade in America started way before 16i9 actually in 1492 and wasn’t just restricted to blacks. See American Holocaust:

    As with Obama, it’s interesting how half-blacks always identify with their black half. Doubtful political incentives explain all of that.

    Hi Beefcake. The reason that American ‘blacks’ tend to identify with their black half (even those with a white parent such as Obama) is the way they look. Black/white mulattos tend to look more African than European. Hair. Nose. Lips. And looks matter. Profoundly. Blacks are very aware of this.

    Most blacks also realize that most whites instinctively prefer the company of other whites (when given the opportunity to choose.) History tells us so.

    If not for the post-WWII Supreme Court decisions, whites would still be living happily in white-segregated towns and neighborhoods. Top-down, ‘anti-discrimination’ court edicts over the past 65 years have transformed American society–against the will of The People.

    As for the importance of physical appearance, no race in history reveres beauty the way whites do. Consider Greek and Roman sculpture, Renaissance paintings, English poetry, French literature, Italian opera. Until recently, Western civilization was drenched with adulation for (white) physical beauty and form.

    White reverence for beauty is one glaring reason why Africans will always be discriminated against (in a free society): to the white eye (uncontaminated by race-mixing propaganda) Africans are hopelessly coarse, primitive-looking, and unrefined. Sub-Saharan Africans are simply not an attractive race (particularly West Africans, which is where most of the New World’s slaves came from.)

    ‘White racism’ (so-called) is merely the innate and legitimate longing by whites for racial preservation, coupled with their natural preference for beauty and grace over coarse ugliness.

    That’s the first lesson we must take from any moral hysteria generated by Jewish Power. Jewish morality is selective in service to Jewish interests, not principled universal justice.

    Agreed that morality is just part of the tool kit. It’s effective in manipulating Anglos because many Anglos see themselves as moral people – with obligations to correct injustices, help the poor, help Blacks etc. – and who actually feel guilty if they don’t.

    The Jewish media plays on this by saying, “You are guilty”, “You haven’t done enough”, “Abase yourself further”, “Your people were born guilty” and actively promote victim classes with themselves of course as the Nº1 victims.

    The Romans had a rule that any slave who had been whipped or otherwise harshly treated, if freed, had to go live far away from his former masters. If he returned, he would be re-enslaved. It was a recognition of the fact that the former slave would always seek to revenge himself, and the former master would always live in fear of attack, if they lived together in the same community.

    You had a similar situation in the South after 1865, and since WWII, nationwide. Blacks have forgotten nothing and forgiven nothing, and so long as they continue to live alongside whites, there will be strife.

    /I personally think it would be possible to integrate Black people into American society, it is not possible with racial agitation groups lead by Jews stirring things up though./

    Forced “integration” NEVER works.

    Blacks were coming along just fine in the 1950s and 1960s, proving by their individual behavior that they (would and) could function in white-run society by following the rules in place for all of us.

    More and more, blacks were being accepted on their own merits, while having the freedom to live among their own kind.

    A good example of this was an “all-black” community on the east side of Detroit. “Conant Gardens” was a premier black-run community which rivaled that of the best of white communities. The houses were beautifully kept up as community standards were enforced. Quite often, “a good talking to” by neighbors was enough to maintain community standards. Community pride was paramount.

    Freedom of association was the rule, business owners were able to determine who their clientele would be. There was no shame in choosing one’s customers.

    All that changed when federal troops were used to enforce (forced) integration.

    Blacks were “brainwashed” by bolshevik communist jews into believing that they were “oppressed” and that they needed the slimy jew “civil-rights workers” to help them gain their rights. It has all been downhill from there.

    Jews still have their “pets” (blacks), but more and more, blacks are realizing that they have been (and are still being used) by the jews. Minister Louis Farrakhan has been foremost in “naming the jew”-a good thing…

    During the Civil War, Lincoln continuously circumvented the law and in many cases suspended the Constitution of the United States altogether. In doing so, Lincoln denied the rights of citizens he was sworn to protect. He suspended the writ of Habeas Corpus, closed courts by force, and arrested citizens and elected officials without cause. Lincoln also raised troops without the consent of Congress, closed-down newspapers whose writers displayed any dissent to U.S. policy.

    (The above hyphenated name thing doesn’t apply if you’re actually part of the English upper classes. This ‘Nikole’ person is not.)

    -Get over it already! Slavery – everybody w0rldwide was doing it BTW, and the White Cultures got rid of it first – The Civil War, et al was so very long ago. Worth studying? Yes, absolutely! But…These sort of revisionist historical interpretations all suffer from a common flaw: that just because the people then looked like you, that must have thought like you as well, have shared your modern worldview. They didn’t.

    -That, and there’s a lot of confirmation bias on all sides going on with this whole ‘1619’ thing.

    -This (pompous and clown-haired) ‘Nikole’ person ought to focus instead on the Black Experience of the 21st Century, asking the question “What have you done lately?” That answer is clear to any dispassionate observer of America’s (and Europe’s) cities, highlighting the fact that those that scream loudest about ‘Racism’ usually skip over the “Judged By Content of Their Character” part of Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech.

    -The virtue signaling public school boards that adopt this ‘1619’ piece of trash are doing their students no great favor. But then their students can’t read anyway, so perhaps the damage will be minimised.

    -At any rate, you only get the objective truth once you leave the school system, either public or private, and even then only fitfully and if you’re curious enough. Most people are not.

    -Also and at any rate, the real truth about history is that it’s gray. Always has been; always will be. It’s written by people after all, and with their attendant flaws, prejudices and weaknesses.

    One thing about American despicable ignorant conservative websites. Knowing nothing about Chinese and Asian corruption, and ruthlessness, they welcome Asians because:

    1 Allegedly they have an average 105 IQ just 2 points higher than the average White American IQ of 103. Big fu**ing whoop. The Asian welcoming and ignorant conservatives don’t even realize there are more than 50 countries in Asia and that most of those countries have average IQs in the 80s 90s. Plus, Hong Kong is not a nation it’s part of China always has been.

    2 Asians have an official low crime rate. Unlike blacks, Asians aren’t street criminals. Asian crime is highly organized and kept within the specific Asian community. Not just Chinese preying on other Chinese. But Fukienese preying on Fukienese for instance

    3 They’re entrepreneurs. They sure are. Because they are not White they get all sorts of 0 interest roll over transferable never pay back loans, tax exemptions and numerous other government benefits just because they are non White. They cheat on every tax ; from sales, to income, to payroll.

    They also have ghost employees on the payroll. They create a ghost and pay the unemployment benefit employers tax into the fund. They know exactly how long and for what wage the ghost needs to get the highest unemployment benefit.

    So the ghost is laid off for lack of work and gets the maximum unemployment benefit for a year whatever the maximum time is.

    Most Asian entrepreneurs have several ghost employees. When unemployment benefits for Warren Wu runs out, Lucy Liu is laid off, applies for unemployment benefit and Warren goes back to work.

    This has been going on since the 1930s when the unemployment funds were set up. And it’s just one crime the Asian entrepreneurs commit.

    What has happened, is that chattel slavery has been replaced by wage slavery, and it affects Blacks and Whites, just as the pre-1655 slavery did.

    Exactly.

    The cheap labor/mass immigration system is simply chattel slavery and it’s trade distilled to it’s financial essence…ie the ‘peculiar institution’ was monetized and not abolished.

    For both the former would be slave dealer and former would be slave consumer (purchaser) chattel slavery and it’s trade was streamlined financially and made into ‘just in time’ slavery if you will…all the former negatives buyer and seller had to deal with now having been safely outsourced to the general public (you and I, the vast majority) to deal with.

    There were people who in real time had observed this in the 19th century…such as the prominent US economist Henry Charles Carey as quoted below.

    The Big Lie, the lie of the millenium, was the 19th century ‘abolition’ of slavery.

    Black slavery was not key to the rise of a “modern economy” in the USA.
    Use of slaves made a few men wealthy. Also, the banks that extended to these men credit.
    Much of the financial dealings of the South were conducted in Philadelphia. Many Philadelphia families had connections with Southern entrepreneurs.
    But slavery kept most of the South and its inhabitants in a state of utter underdevelopment and poverty. It also downgraded the whole concept of labor.
    There was no reliable transportation. Getting one’s crop to market was an adventure.
    You cannot run a “modern” economy without transportation infrastructure. Just one small example.
    Most people fail to realize that there were vast differences between different areas of the South. Cotton country was very different from the old colonies to the east, and the moutainous areas of the Carolinas.
    As for “gracious living” in the South, Frederick Law Olmstead totally buries that fantasy with a bracing does of reality. There was very little that was “gracious” in any part of the American South. Most of it was a sloppy mess.

    Here and there Olmstead noted a neat, orderly, well functioning farmstead—these turned out to be owned by immigrant German families.

    “Not only does Stannard indirectly counter this assertion but the Smithsonian directly counters it:

    https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/misguided-focus-1619-beginning-slavery-us-damages-our-understanding-american-history-180964873/”

    I was very pleased to see that the Smithsonian piece references John K. Thornton’s work. His “The Cultural History of the Atlantic World” (with maps and illustrations; paperback is available from Cambridge University Press) is an incredible resource and also, as it happens, a very enjoyable read. Thornton examines in detail the history and political tensions in the lands that Europeans “discovered.” Circumstances in West Africa, in Mexico, in Peru, actually determined the agenda of the small groups of Europeans who “discovered” this places, took sides in local civil wars, bought slaves that were captives of African tribal leaders—trapped for the purpose of being sold—etc.

    The peoples of Africa and the so-called New World were not passive spear carriers in the European drama. They had their own dramas already running whne the Europeans entered the stage. And of course created complications for the locals. The Europeans interacted with and responded to local conditions. Thornton, a specialist in African history (as is his wife) presents a fascinating view of the various types of competition for power that took place in the Atlantic cultural space (the book developed out of a long series of graduate seminars he led at Boston University). He has accessed many new databases of historical documents, statistics, and other types of sources. All is copiously documented so that readers can check out these primary sources themselves (the notes themselves also make for interesting reading).

    Next to this kind of sophisticated scholarly endeavor, the fixation on one date and the distortion of history that the fixation leads to is intellectually primitive. Laughable, really.

  136. 200 years from now, when an honest historian asks, “Why did the West fall?”, the main reason will be white people in the late 20th century and 21st century came to most revere, admire, and worship the people most antithetical to civilization. Blacks-and-Civilization is like drinking-and-driving. But due to the combination of ‘White Guilt’ and White Thrill, whites became spiritually and sensually owned by blacks.

    Are there grounds for ‘white guilt’? Not really. True, blacks suffered under whites, but history has always been about one people clobbering another. Consider what the Bantus did to other blacks(and to other Bantu Tribes) in Africa. Consider what Romans did to Germanic barbarians and ancient Britons. Mass killings and mass enslavement. Consider what Mongols did to Russia and Persia. Consider what whites did to natives of the New World. Consider the bloody history of the Aztecs. It’s all tragic and sad, but no single people had a monopoly on horribleness.
    So, why the special hysteria about black suffering? US empire killed millions overseas in the 20th century while a mere thousand blacks were lynched by whites, but there is more outrage about one dead Negro than many millions dead among non-whites. It’s like Romans killed so many people by way of crucifixion, but Christians only care about the Crucifixion of Jesus. Why? As the Son of God, He was deemed the Superior Being wronged by inferior humans. Thus, Jesus’s suffering matters infinitely more in the hearts of Christians. Once blacks were lionized as the Magic Negro and Macho super-dude, inferior-feeling whites looked upon blacks as the superior race, and that accounts for the excessive ‘white guilt’ about blacks, the psychology of which Jews understand and exploit to their benefit in order to control and own whites. After all, the most effective way to take away a people’s pride and autonomy is by ‘guilt’ and ‘thrill’ for the Other. ‘White Guilt’ paralyzes white pride and white assertion. Whites in atonement mode seek moral redemption by serving the Holy Other, namely Jews and Blacks. And white thrill for the Other in sports and pop music becomes a kind of addiction, like to drugs. Even as it harms whites, they keep sniffing the glue.

    Whites need to realize two things.

    [MORE]

    (1) While white history is certainly not without ‘sin’, this is true of ALL peoples. Black Slavery was hardly unique as a historical wrong. If there is one advantage to the fall of the Liberal Paradigm, it’s that people may regard the US as just another nation with the same kinds of historical crimes and problems, not some ‘city on a hill’ that should be judged by ludicrously high standards. In a perverse sort of way, all this ‘white guilt’ stuff is paradoxically the product of excessive white pride. White Americans were so full of themselves in pride of having created an exceptional nation of liberty and justice that they became extremely sensitive and upset to evidence to the contrary. Therefore, instead of romanticizing America as the beginning of freedom and justice, it makes more sense to see America as an extension of human history with warts and all: Wars, conflicts, oppression, exploitation, and etc. Then there would be far less reason to be so ‘triggered’ by the fact that the American Nation was drenched in ‘sin’… like the rest of humanity in all parts of the world. So, hell with the Liberal Paradigm. As for blacks who point to all the faults of white history, whites should shoot back and point to all the vile things of black Africa, black race in general, and black culture. True pride must be based on the mud-pie of human reality, not the pie in the sky of impossible idealism. American Pride should be based on American Achievement, not American Perfection. What people have been perfect?

    (2) Whites need to realize that the very things that most excite them about blacks also represent the greatest threat to the white race(and to other races because Western Worship of the Black is having a global impact; White West is still the model for the world, and so, if whites go ‘black’, so will other peoples to their own detriments). Are blacks better athletes? Yes, but what are the implications of this fact? Tougher blacks in schools, streets, buses, and elevators can beat up whites with impunity. Whites need to learn to connect the dots. It’s like a stupid baboon cheering on a leopard will realize soon enough it will be next on the leopard’s menu. In other words, any white guy who cheers on a black football player might as well be cheering on blacks beating, robbing, raping, or murdering weaker whites. (While we can all be impressed by the prowess of anything or anyone, we also need to ask, “What does this prowess or power imply for me and my side?” After all, while Iranians may marvel at US military prowess, it would be stupid for them to cheer for it as it could very well turn Iran into rubble. We can be amazed by the power of a lion, tiger, or grizzly bear, but we’d be stupid to cheer for its prowess when it’s charging right at us.) It means white manhood will be lost to blacks, and it just so happens that a race without manhood and respect of its womenfolk is a dead race. Just look at the spread of Afro-Colonization of White Wombs in US, EU, and UK as the result of the demise of white manhood at the feet of Negroes.
    We see this in Japan as well. Even though Japan is, as yet, still mostly homogeneous, Japanese men have lost their pride of manhood under globalist pressure. Japanese youths grow up watching Mongols sumo monsters toss away Japanese wrestlers like ping pong balls. Japanese MMA shows feature whites and blacks destroying Japanese runts. The demented sexual culture of Japan have encouraged the women to grow up as clubbing whores who latch onto foreign men. The result? Not long ago, Japan put forth a mulatto as Miss Japan, and its most revered athletes are mulattoes in tennis and track, products of Japanese women and a black men. Even before demography is messed up, the psycho-national health of a nation can be crippled by the destruction of symbols of national manhood. We see the same thing all across Europe. France is an extreme case where blacks dominate sports almost 100%. But even in nations with far fewer blacks, the black takeover of sports has led to countless whites looking to blacks as representatives of national heroism. Now, one could argue athletes are not heroes and just physically talented sportsmen, but the fact is so many people the world over look to athletes as their champions, demigods, and superstars.

    If white folks realize the dangers of ‘White Guilt’ and ‘White Thrill’ and act accordingly, they might survive. But at this point, it seems rather hopeless. Whites, both Libs and Cons, gushingly worship the Negro. Donald Trump too is just a cuck to Negrohood. And what did George W. Bush say was the worst day of his presidency? When god-man Kanye the ass said Bush doesn’t like black people. Vaginal EU is now wide open to countless millions of black Africans. In US and Canada, the masses have black sports and black music as their main entertainment while Elite Institutions like Harvard and Deep State go the extra step to elevate blacks to highest positions regardless of merit on the premise that nothing imbues an organization or institution with holiness as Having-Our-Magic-Negro. Of course, because the elites can choose the Nice Smiley-faced Negroes for themselves, they can carry on with the illusion that blacks are so obammy-whammy. But things get pretty hairy at the lower levels of society where the less fortunate whites must integrate with ghastly Negroes. COMING APART means Upper Whites get the Nice Negroes while the Lower Whites get the Nasty Ni**az. But if two types of whites have one thing in common, it’s that both elite white men and lower white males are willing to be worthless cucks to the blacks who take their women.

    So, 200 yrs from now, when an honest historian wonders WHY THE WEST FELL, it would have been because the combination of White Guilt and White Thrill prevented whites from waking up and taking tough measures to save the West from the blacks, especially as whites were mental minions of Jewish Supremacist Power that used blacks to keep the lid on white pride of identity. Better to die worshiping the Magic Negro than be accused of the heresy of ‘racism’.

Generations of hatred, tribal hatreds, constant battles. The warlike tribes of this continent are famous: the Comanche, Sioux, Apache, Mohawk, Aztecs, Toltec, Incas.

    One should not judge the behavior of those living hundreds of years ago by the standards of today.
    The situation was much different, utilization of energy not being what it is today. Most people lived a hardscrabble existence, worrying about where and when the next meal for themselves and their families would come from.
    Even with slavery, in many cases, the slave owner worked alongside his slaves as life was not easy for any of them. The slave owner had the additional burden of being required to take care of his slaves FOR LIFE. Yes, it was a symbiotic relationship in many cases, but many times, slaves were “better off” than free (white) people.
    The image of the slave owner sitting on his veranda sipping mint juleps while watching his slaves till the fields is a myth.
    In fact, since planting seasons and harvest seasons were extremely time sensitive, the slave owner was likely to be alongside his slaves to either plant or harvest the crops.
    In between planting and harvest, there was not a lot of work for slaves to do. Many of them developed other skills such as carpentry and woodworking that could be used to provide an income, even enough for them to purchase their freedom.
    It is interesting to note that the most prolific slave traders were jews, as they had the business acumen to run that sordid trade.
    As an aside, Cinque, as portrayed in the movie Amistad, in real life, after gaining his freedom became one of the most successful slave trader of the day.

    Eastern Europe, Russia and China may hold out on that front. The biggest danger for Eastern Europe comes from being in the EU. If they were to leave they’d be safer from the immigrant threat. They’d be poorer, but this would make them less attractive to the immigrants, and eventually the immigrants will drag down the EU anyway.

    Thanks Wally. Any objection from you pretty much confirms what I’ve written. It seems you and the authors of “1619” would get along well since you both live in some alternative historical universe that has nothing to do with actual facts and evidence.

    If I only could kill file your sorry ass instead of reading this asinine comment of yours that gives a couple of links claiming to “debunk” what is known as historical fact by archeological and documentary evidence based on America’s version of the Piltdown man:

They’d be poorer, but this would make them less attractive to the immigrants, and eventually the immigrants will drag down the EU anyway.

    The Eastern Europeans are quite successfully resisting the EU pressure to open their frontiers, so better to stay, and get into closer alliance with the growing nationalist forces in Europe. The problem is with the EU elite who are in bed with the US Zio-Glob crowd.

    If you read Jean Monnet’s “Memoirs” it’s clear that he wanted to create a post war USE (United States of Europe), as an analogous political entity to the USA. The history of the EU has been a constant push in this direction – lately by a mostly unaccountable Zio-Glob friendly bureaucracy. Their high point was probably the introduction of the Euro common currency.

    The fact, European people are quite friendly with each other at a personal level, and feel a background European identity (Christian based, historically resisting Arab and Asian invasions, and home to the industrial revolution), and don’t want to live in the frontier-less corporate US Zio-Glob world. This is an elite driven project pushing mass non-European immigration, “free trade” sending their manufacturing jobs to China while they become shop assistants and hamburger flippers.

    It’s the sick corporate world where citizens become “consumers” and everything is monetized /traded (i.e. converted into debt – “financialized” on the US model – education, healthcare – prisons etc.).

    Apparently wholly unaware of the comments. The fault for the country is everything and everyone except whites — Who by the reckoning of many here are superior in education, intelligence and moral fiber . . . . and yet it’s everyone else’s fault but their own. This idea of order 1619 against what occurred historically is a new cause for blinders.

    Humorous this.

    This 1619 project is a continuation of the White Guilt Project that will ultimately destroy the USA.
    White Guilt is a book written by Shelby Steele, a Black man.The title continues”How Blacks and Whites together destroyed the promise of the Civil Rights Era”Civil rights has been transmogrified into Revenge.The 1619 Project is merely same ol’ same ol’ White Guilt Project with new clothes.It is not Okay to be White in America because Diversity depends on White guilt for its existence. If Whites were treated fairly in America this entire Diversity project, with Diversity Offices, and Diversity Deans and Diversity scholarships and Diversity Disparate Impact( which costs the US about 2-3% of our GDP every year…Rubenstein) would not be in place, however in order to avoid the penalty of unemployment, most Whites go along with this White guilt program.White guilt is like alcohol, it is what greases the differences in our multicultural society. without White guilt, Multiculturalism would grind to a halt due to the discrimination against Whites that it depends on.Good luck kids, I hope you like being second class citizens.

    Like our politics, popular history has become focused on anecdote and emotion. As average IQ goes down, so does the capacity for reasoned, comprehensive analysis.

    Sounds like a good book. I had read before about how the conquistadors exploited local grievances among other tribes with the Aztec insatiability for human sacrifice victims. Perhaps it can be studied by the woke as a case study in maintaining solidarity among the coalition of the fringes against white colonization.

    Reading comprehension is your friend, amigo. I said the groids in Tx and OK were descended from slaves of Injuns, not whites. Same thing you said. Only I said it first.

    “The image of the slave owner sitting on his veranda sipping mint juleps while watching his slaves till the fields is a myth.”

    Not completely a myth, in South Carolina or Virginia, but certainly one in the Cotton Kingdom of the Deep South. There, most large plantation owners were absentee owner/entrepreneurs who rarely showed up to look out over their fields or enjoy a julep (and the plantation “mansions” often were mean affairs with very few amenities and no verandah). Instead, the plantations were in the hands of overseers. Some of the latter actually were slaves, some were freedmen, and most, of course, were white. Because, for whites in the Cotton Kingdom, one of the only jobs open to them was as an overseer on a big cotton plantation, overseeing the work and behavior of from 50 up to 200 slaves. Their job was to “drive” the slaves so that the pace of work never slowed down. Some Northerners who came south to make their fortunes in the “wild South” of the cotton-growing industry took overseer jobs to get started with making enough money so that they, too, could get into the game: buy or lease land and purchase a few slaves and start growing cotton (of course they also had to borrow to get started; many of the bankers who extended credit for new cotton-growing ventures were located in New Orleans).

    You can read it all in Olmstead’s The Cotton Kingdom.

  153. @conatus

    Thank you. I’d love to see that expressed as just the costs of health/education/welfare, applied to the estimated 23 trillion burned since the 60s, excluding prison costs just for fun.

    White Americans in the 60s opposed welfare programs, fearing Blacks would get on it en masse.

    They were right.

    whites are so hypocritically sweet! wash and be dirty! hahahahaha.

    greedy to a fault, pervese, pervert, lascivious.. they dip into life and try to take it all..then having it, wash to clean themseves again, become pristine again…but discover they were always drity and it wont wash off..cant be washed off. hahahahaha

    oh mi god! Pheeeeew! what do we have here. white people..a terror to the world and to their own selves too. I dont have a clue as to what they can do..but I do know the truth must out and we have to find a way to save ourselves -all.

    white men in particular, are not good at very much in life save living, building suicide. white women do see a bit better, more keen on life

    anonymous says niggerish..the founders. the founders we are indeed – we niggers..and from that all are nigger-niggerish..including anonymous above…and Old Grumpy the Quaker, and lockean Proviso etc. they are all nasty, lascivious white and nigger too..literally-by heritage and culture inescapably so
    hahahaha

  155. “They were right.”

    And whites were granted access to welfare from which blacks were excluded up until the late 60’s. Furthermore, when the programs that arrived in the late 60’s whites were recipients as well and in large numbers. Few if any such programs have been exclusively black.

    And i take it we are going to detract the costs of riots by whites.

    Has anyone done the math on what dollar amount of the trillions burned on the ‘War on Poverty’ already went to Blacks?

    I remember reading the figure of 22 trillion years ago from this article.

    https://www.heritage.org/poverty-and-inequality/report/the-war-poverty-after-50-years

    It says the money was spent on “anti-povery programs.” But not sure what that includes.

    Of course, Welfare: Medicaid, and food stamps, would be included.

    Then, of course, there’s, Section 8 subsidized housing, the WIC program for women with infant children, HEAP emergency heating payments, the earned income tax credit, SNAP supplemental nutrition, TANF temporary food assistance, supplemental security income, AFDC for families with dependent children, free cell phones, subsidized daycare, affirmative action, set-aside programs, subsidized public transportation, etc. and so on until forever or until we all go broke and toothless only to have them still whine for more.

    Reparations are indeed needed, for Whites.

    Yep!

  160. “I was going to engage in a detailed refutation, but then I saw it was you.”

    Laughing.

    Why rehash an argument you lost previously. Sound choice. I did provide several nook references on the history of welfare. I take it you you’ve read them and chosen to ignore the record, given your response.

    The vast majority of welfare programs are also enjoyed by whites or people of other colors or have programs that whites would qualify for.

    The record of riots in this country has also been covered. And that data is also well known.

    However, despite not having a clear position on the issue of 1619 or reparations both riot and welfare re irrelevant introductions. Also previously discussed.

    I think you made a wise choice.

    Laughing. No point in discussing a policy granted to Japanese and native americans and Jews.

    You are invited to name the rule or policy that denies whites access to these programs.

    There are “unwritten rules and policies” that DO disenfranchise whites , especially when it comes to short-term, temporary “help” from our “social services agencies”.

    Most of the government social workers who administer these programs are black, and see no problem in denying “whitey” access to these programs.

    I, for one, was “involuntarily separated” from my employment, through no fault of my own–an illegal “reduction in force” of those of us who were over 50 years of age.

    Yes, I am aware of the “civil rights” laws that are supposed to protect us from “age discrimination”, but I can tell you, that in the case of white males, they do not work.

    I filed a complaint with the EEOC division of the “Justice (actually “just us”) department, and after a year, received a response that my case was “without merit” and that my file was closed.

    I attempted to apply for non-monetary help through the state “food stamp” program, dutifully filling out the multiple-page form which required personal, inquisitive answers in order to be considered for the program. Once again, I was denied.

    I personally know minority types who have thousands of dollars in their “Bridge Card” accounts (Michigan’s name for their “food stamp” program) and they brag about it.

    I found out that the state social workers are extremely friendly and beneficent “when it comes to their own kind” but still routinely reject whites who seek help for equal treatment.

    Although being “laid off” for two years, finding doors slammed in my face because of age, I was able to find gainful employment based on my own merits and qualifications. As most employers will not consider anyone over 50 years of age, I was fortunate to be “at the right place at the right time”, gaining an engineering position in which immediate action was required. This position was the best job that I ever had…

    Even the state-run “social services” system is stacked against white males…

  162. I have no issues with your personal examples. Nor do I have issues with the comments save this,

    it is more plausible that the discrimination as you describe is in favor of illegal and immigrant workers, not by definition whites in general. The other population that I think is granted some preference is women.

    I have never applied for any government benefits, though I certainly should have. But it might be that some are practicing the same behaviors as whites when they held those posts. I think if that is the case, the real issue is probably the Hispanic population. Again anecdotal, but I think that is a real threat — in Ca we have illegal visitors running for office serving on juries. There is immense pressure to submit to hispanic demands, and that includes illegals. On this, I tend to think the admin sides with those who think the answer to our issues is the embrace of latinos.

    Any black who supports illegal or even most immigration is cutting off their own hands.

    Having dealt with the system, I am very empathetic to your complaint, but I doubt that blacks are the real heavies here.
