Since the 1960s Washington has launched countless programs in what might be characterized as “racial alchemy” whose purpose is to make blacks nearly identical to whites in income, educational achievement, vocational status, being law abiding, eschewing welfare dependency and multiple other measures of equality. Despite all the billions, perhaps trillions, the results have been disappointing. But, almost invisibly, the enterprise has been transformed. It has evolved from one of seeking concrete results to one of manufacturing the illusion of equality. Success is now calibrated by cosmetic criteria–recall Oscar Wilde’s quip that only shallow people do not judge by appearances.

The racial Potemkin village is everywhere and let me depict only a few of the more obvious manifestations (I’ll skip TV sitcoms, the movies, video games, comics and book prizes). Consider the sudden appearance of well-spoken, well-dressed, “white speaking” blacks in TV commercials. A Martian who knew the US exclusively from watching TV would conclude that blacks comprised at least a third of the population and, without exception, lived as intact Ossie and Harriet-like families in bucolic suburban homes (the sole exception I’ve encountered is a State Farm commercial where the satisfied female customer is “ghetto” in speech and hairdo). One GMC truck commercial prominently features a black conducting a symphony orchestra. Add lots of good-looking typically young inter-racial couples and racially mixed groups of working class men quaffing a few beers together. Black actors also often portray doctors advising their white patients on the latest pharmaceutical products or explaining MRI’s to worried elderly white cancer patients. Highly presentable Ph.D’s of color likewise populate PBS-like scientific TV documentaries.

Today’s racial alchemy reaches industrial levels when it comes to black crime. Gruesome black-on-white murders only appear on the local news (if then) and would be almost non-existent save for politically incorrect websites that pass it along to wider audiences. And when black crime does escape containment, it is usually sanitized—accounts of black wildings at malls use terms like “youths’ or “teenagers” while black perpetrators are often race-less though crime details make it easy to identify the perpetrator as black. Meanwhile, those who somehow get on TV to challenge Black Lives Matter rhetoric with Department of Justice statistics on inter-racial violence get their ten seconds of fame before quickly being shouted down as racists. And let’s not forget rolling back broken windows policy as a way of “reducing” crime.”

A similar ubiquity infuses education. Difficult-to-boost test scores have been replaced by more malleable graduation statistics while performances on Advanced Placement exams (Chapter 5) are now often measured by the sheer number of “minorities” who take these exams. Similarly, large numbers of blacks are now pushed into gifted programs though they fail to meet the necessary academic criteria. Sustaining the charade are school officials who turn a blind eye to cheating on government mandated tests. Then there’s using grandiose names for disguising mediocre schools—only 14% of the graduates of the Bronx-based largely Hispanic and black Archimedes Academy for Math, Science and Technology Applications are academically ready for New York City’s flagship public college (as defined by not needing remedial classes) despite the school’s august sounding name. Further add Department of Justice consent decrees to close historic race-related gaps in school discipline. Nor is higher education immune to the construction of this racial fantasy land as even elite schools continue to embrace affirmative action and offer easy-to-pass majors such as Black Studies all the while hiring marginally qualified black academics to diversify once monochromatic departments.

Our public vocabulary has shifted to toward abstractions to absolve blacks from any personal responsibility for their plight. There are no lazy, intellectual inept black students; all want to learn but, sadly, have the misfortune to attend bad, often vandalized schools. Young blacks now, allegedly, commit crimes because they have the bad luck to live in a crime-ridden neighborhood and cannot find work because all the jobs have left town. And so many are in jail due to the government’s policy of mass incarceration.

In sum, just as old-fashioned alchemists faked the outcomes, miracles regarding American racial progress seemingly abound—base metals have been transformed into gold!

The shift into deceit is almost predictable. Most obviously, the dishonesty soothes black egos, welcome comfort after decades of bad news. Deception also makes life easier—obtaining a legitimate high school degree is tough work compared to waiting passively for educators who cook the books to award diplomas to those who can barely read them. Life in a Potemkin village can also be quite pleasant when what is illegal elsewhere, e.g., dealing a little weed, is tolerated to manufacture fanciful crime statistics. To be fair, this flight from an awkward reality is just human nature—what ethnic group relishes bad publicity? No group is immune to this type of deceit; blacks just have more to expunge. As such, for African Americans the construction of Potemkin villages is just a matter of degree not of kind.


Will this fantasy world ever end? At least in the short term probably not and may even expand as one nostrum after the next fails to deliver. Just wait until next year’s more diverse Oscar nominations. Of the utmost importance, the pressure to sustain the manufactured reality far exceed what comes from African Americans now appearing in TV commercials. I strongly suspect that the influential whites who facilitate the charade honestly believe that this alchemy will far outshine the failed billion dollar Great Society-like programs. That is, thanks to watching TV underclass blacks will receive a vicarious taste of a middle class existence (nice house, new car, pretty wife etc.) and this idyllic image will motivate them to avoid crime and pursue respectability. Similarly, blacks with unearned diplomas will nevertheless somehow get well-paying jobs thanks to enhanced self-esteem. On the other side of the racial divide, whites unconsciously prone to discriminate against African Americans will abandon their harmful prejudices when they no longer encounter of grim black-on-white crime on the 6:00PM news.

The interesting question, of course, is whether this façade will fool anybody other than the zealots. My guess is that eventually many though not all whites will see though the social engineering. There is just too much bad news to be papered over. At a minimum, distrust of the mass media will grow and as we now see with the rise of Donald Trump, resentment at being “social worked” will eventually bubble up. At some point the number of non-believers will grow and millions will finally confide to each other that they thought nobody else noticed the lies.

  1. Mr. Weissberg, you are a true visionary. Blacks are indeed a privileged class of elite citizens living charmed lives while whites are disenfranchised and powerless victims of this dark-skin oligarchy.

    The end goal is to absorb blacks into white America through race mixing like black people in the Caribbean were absorbed into white Britain. (At the recent black lives matter protest in London there were brown Muslims and Somalis rather than a predominant Caribbean crowd like the Brixton riots of 30 years ago.)

    At that point these images promoting a middle class black America can end because there will be no need.

    Another Potemkin village deception: Social media were flooded by memes posted by NASA, showing males and (mainly) females of all skin hues (but darkish, principally) thanking them for the achievement that was celebrated at that time.

    Google does too.

    But if you happen to read a deeper reportage on Google or NASA, and it comes with pictures of the “high rooms”, what you see is males, and very untanned ones, with the exception of a few Indian (strictly all male, and taken fro a pool of 1.3 billion people, as we know).

    American TV also glamorizes miscegenation. This choice is generally not good advice however. Bi-racialism can alienate children from their parents as well as their community. A white female who chooses to bear a black child is putting her offspring in a disadvantaged position and in underachieving class. Race correlates strongly with IQ and any number of behavior traits. This should not be ignored. Yet it is.

    When white females bear black children, they usually end up raising the child alone since black fathers often disappear. The white mother is then left particularly isolated since white males do not want to raise a black man’s baby. This causes further stress on mother and child alike.

    The children of interracial romance also suffer from identity issues. This spreads hardship throughout the family and into the community.

    Miscegenation is very risky. It should not be glamorized by TV/Hollywood. Yet it is.

  9. I like the one where the White couple are destroying their house to avoid having to call their insurance man while next door and the brilliant Blacks bought AllState (or whomever). Those folks are the epitome of the .0001% of Blacks pushed as the average. And, average Blacks would hate all the successful Blacks in ads because by being successful, they are “acting White”. There are a million of these examples now, of course.

    Now what kind of street cred does a conventionally successful (degree and an honest profession, wife and family) Black have? Zero. The Blacks in the ghetto would hate those folks because that path is what White folks take to success. That of course is abhorrent to low-rent Blacks because that path means hard work, in spite of how easy it’s become for Blacks to take that path. And true to form, any Black kid with the instinct to learn and succeed is derided and beaten up at school (ghetto schools that is) for acting White. That one aspect is huge, I suspect, bigger than we know..

    You forgot the sarc-tag.

    Blacks have their own “1%” who populate the MOG and race industry, and they are doing much better than the rest of us through these ventures and certainly punching above the weight their numbers would reflect if they were given a quota head-count based on representation in the broader population. There is no question the other “99%” have a hard-knock life, but they aren’t being helped much by their elite.

    I suppose the writer is talking about the so-called HOUSE NIGGER class, otherwise, the vast majority of 22 million American Blacks are still at the bottom the economic, education, human-rights heap.

    When it comes to White and Jewish racism – Blacks are only second to Muslims in America. The country had its first HALF-BLACK president since the British North American colony became United States. During his 8-year in the White House, Barack Obama has proved 101% what Malolm X called HOUSE NIGGER.

    “Malcolm X, unlike Martin Luther King Jr., did not believe America had a conscience. For him there was no great tension between the lofty ideals of the nation—which he said were a sham—and the failure to deliver justice to blacks. He, perhaps better than King, understood the inner workings of empire. He had no hope that those who managed empire would ever get in touch with their better selves to build a country free of exploitation and injustice,” Chris Hedges says at Truthdig on February 1, 2015.

    Personally I take the more cynical view that this is a very cost-effective strategy employed by these ‘influential whites’ to dumb-down our society. Abhorrent black culture is constantly being foisted on our youth – my six year old grandson watches cartoons where distorted characters communicate in ‘cool’ jive-talk and ‘dem drums is everywhere’.

    But I won’t get started on drums.

    Race is something we cannot change but a toxic culture can be expunged – right now it is applauded, however gross.

    The system is actually working as designed. First you must remember that the Democrats have always exploited blacks for wealth and power. Most school children fail due to low parental investment (welfare). So schools actually work for some children, The successful blacks or as President Obama called them “life’s lottery winners” are bought off with affirmative action for higher education and jobs in schools and bureaucracies. Where their union dues and votes go to the Democratic Party. Meanwhile the successful blacks and the Democratic Party support a system that cranks out black men that are not prepared to participate in our economic system, but are taught to blame and hate whites, while claiming that the schools are failing for lack of money. It’s all based on ignorance and corruption. It’s sick and must be stopped.

  19. @Mark Green

    Our elites claim they care about “mental health” so much, but as you point out they ignore the welfare of the products of the race-mixing degeneracy they’ve pushed onto us for the past few generations. “Think of the children!” goes by the wayside when it comes to the project of breeding white people out of existence.

  24. joef says:

    It was asked in the article ‘if this will ever end’. I do not think so. Every failure in race relations with afro americans seems to demand that we blame whitey even more. The facts are now so confused with leftist obfuscation that we no longer can agree on what the problems are. With economic decline this leftist promoted balkanization will spell disaster for this nation. Its like watching a slow motion car crash that you cannot prevent. Yet the leftist will always call their failures a success or demand more funding (endless liberal social policy money pits).

    In addition we have the anarcho capitalist pundits joining in the confused rhetoric with their obsessive anti police theories. They show complete ignorance about the dynamics of interpersonal violent events. And they seem to be completely divorced from reality, with no ability to make proper distinctions ( which is an indication of an ideologue) . I do not believe most of them ever been to a major urban ghetto; nor personally know someone who’s been a victim of a extreme violent attack (and most probably could not fight out of a wet paper bag). Their complaint about unwarranted police violence as compared to afro american perpetrated violent crime is like comparing a firecracker to a stick of dynamite (they have no perspective which shows very limited real world experience – – they are merely book smart, and only read/study what reenforces their fanciful theories).
    As a result, those of us who live in major urban areas, who rely on the police to keep a lid on violent crime, will suffer the consequences of police cautiously slowing down, while leftist and anarcho capitalist giddily condemn the police, unconcerned that more of their fellow citizens will be victimized by crime. After all to them ideology trumps reality.

    The US media favor the Cause over the Case.

    Instead of treating each story as a separate case, it is procrusteanized or procrusted to serve the Cause.

    The Cause is seen as the higher good, therefore the higher truth.
    Just like adults must lie to kids for their own good(as kids cannot deal with the real truth), the media feel that the people must be fed certain myths that serve the higher good.

    In an extreme time like WWII, this was understandable.

    But the WWII mindset that still pervades media is nuts. It’s still premised on Allies vs Nazis mindset.

    The UVA rape hoax was part of the service to the Cause. Blonde Aryan Nazi fratboy rapists.

    Even if Cosby Effect is possible, wouldn’t it be neutralized by the promotion of Rap-Thug Culture by the very same ‘influential whites’?

  28. ”Then there’s using grandiose names for disguising mediocre schools”

    Public schools are named “Academy”, have students wear uniforms, and have small class sizes in the futile attempt to mimic private schools without acknowledging that the top private schools select students by family income and test scores.

    Berkeley, CA only has one comprehensive public high school (plus an alternative school). They maintain the façade at the high school that everyone is equal by having different Small Schools within the high school so most of the black students don’t have to interact with the white kids in the more rigorous programs and everyone has the opportunity to get good grades and graduate despite their ability.

  29. Mr. Weissberg’s final paragraph may be a bit unnecessarily pessimistic. I suspect that most whites (the zealots excepted of course) already can see through this charade.

    Take out the violence and what is left in Caribbean culture?

    It’s funny. Blacks hate cops.
    But more blacks at any social event means the need for more cops to maintain the peace among violent blacks.
    But when cops do their job, blacks bitch ‘racism’.

    If blacks acted peaceable, there would be less need for police presence.
    But blacks act wild. Therefore, need for more police presence.

    Racial alchemy indeed. Little green men watching American TV would get the impression that blacks are America’s leading citizens and represent an intellectual elite. It seems every police chief is black and most judges are black females. Only on TV are the criminals mostly white and the cops mostly black.

    Blacks are never depicted as exclusively evil in movies. If an evil black or two is required then it will be balanced by equally evil whites and good blacks. After all, we don’t what those white people in flyover country getting the wrong ideas about race or looking askance at the black man.

    The popular TV series The Walking Dead is a perfect example of this longstanding industry trend where goodwhites and blacks ban together against badwhites and blacks. But the really dastardly characters are almost always white like the governor.

    And it’s Weissbergs co-racialists in the entertainment industry who are responsible for that which he laments. If his folk were true to their principles they would be churning out movies about Israeli women falling madly in love with Palestinian Muslims and depicting Muslims as leading members of Israeli society. They would include stories about the legendary size of the Palestinian Muslim man’s genitalia and his unmatched sexual prowess much like they promote the black man and sell him to brainless and naive white women in America which has produced legions of mulattoes.

    Well, if you enjoy a significant advantage in being hired or promoted specifically because of your skin color, I’d call that “privileged,” too.

    I’ve seen it with my own eyes. Corporate America will move mountains to hire and promote blacks (and Latinos and women and gays, etc., etc., etc.)

    I guess I should just count my blessings, all of which I was born with due in part to being a child of people whose ancestors spent most of the last 1000 years in Northern Europe and/or England. Me and mine do well in “life’s big race” even when the others enjoy all the extra help my taxes can purchase for them.

    I think the word is BLOWBACK.

  60. What is the effect of all this alchemy (and Magic Negro narrative) on blacks?

    Do they think, “Wow, all the other blacks are getting ahead, but Whitey is holding ME, personally, back?”

    Does seeing endless images of “black success” make the average black even MORE bitter?

    Does simply pushing more unprepared and incapable blacks into college or demanding jobs render happy people, or are they even more embittered when they see others (whites, Asians, Ashkenazim) sailing through what very few blacks can tackle?

    I’d ask the same questions about mainstreaming “special ed” kids in regular ed classrooms (which is today’s Big Fad in education) but then the whole thing would be from the department of redundancy department.

    Black Caribbeans in the UK are relatively few something like 500k in a population of 65 million. A lot easier to subsume than 40 million US blacks. Keep in mind interracial marriage rates distort the fact that blacks are the least likely to be in such unions. Black women the least of all.

    @Priss Factor

    Not sure about that. Certainly more whites have become “niggarized” but only among those that latch on to the mainstream culture as its guide. Plenty of whites have minimum exposure to it. Large swaths of the South, Appalachians & Mountain West are not on board with debauched culture of today.

    Trump’s rise is almost entirely due to this backlash. Look what happened to Mizzou? Behind the scenes donors called pulled funding, applications dropped & now enrollment dropped 25%.

    I don’t divulge “racist” views. I listen.
    NASA employees are just as likely as anyone else to have been, or known, someone murdered, raped, harassed, mugged, etc. I know someone quite important, who was on the metro one morning very early when a black man, for unknown reasons, jumped her and pinned her to the floor. She talked him out of his position. Another time she was in the crowded metro and a black grabbed her laptop with god-kn0ws-what on it; he thought the doors would close too fast but she gave chase through the metro. To their credit the metro police caught him (I think some of them were black.)
    Her experiences have been mild compared to some I know. FBI stats would illuminate you to no end, but they are hard to find.

    White people are more likely to be murdered, raped, etc. by white people than by black people. So by your logic, I’d expect to see more NASA employees biased against whites than blacks.

    Then again, since it’s irrational to blame an entire race of people for the actions of a few individuals, your “logic” is moronic to begin with.

    They are indeed. Last year, we waited to speak to a salesman at a Honda dealer who was finishing up a sale with a Black woman buying an $32,000 Odyssey with almost half down from her EITC/ACTC check. The salesman did not need to know the source of the down payment, but the buyer volunteered the information.

    Whites working or living in areas with high percentages of Blacks are far more likely to be victimized by Blacks than by Whites.

    This is trivially true and holds even if all crimes are completely random.

  76. @AndrewR

    Any real solutions to the black crime problem must also involve major police reform.

    Except the truth is that you cannot effectively police a population of low IQ, angry, resentful, and violent Africans using the same tactics and strategies used to police whites and Asians. Policing the Africans is more akin to our occupation of Iraq where your cops may be ambushed and murdered in a crowd of 300 people, but without a single witness. Whites, on the other hand, trip over one another to be first in testifying and often will chase down, apprehend, and restrain the guilty until the police arrive. Because of this vast difference, we see more and more cops treating everyone as if they are African which leads to the loss of support in the white population.

    The lesson we just refuse to acknowledge is that government cannot erase 50,000-75,000 years of divergent evolution. Perhaps 10% of Africans can and do “act white” enough to function in a positive productive manner in western civilization. The majority on the other hand will never assimilate. 150+ years after Emancipation and we see the same “Talented Tenth” we saw in 1865.

    Most in the alt-right lament Obama’s AFFH scheme. I think it’s exactly what we need. The harder it becomes for goodthinking whites to ignore or excuse African dysfunction, the sooner we might honestly and openly debate this issue and implement a real solution.

    “At a minimum, distrust of the mass media will grow and as we now see with the rise of Donald Trump, resentment at being “social worked” will eventually bubble up. At some point the number of non-believers will grow and millions will finally confide to each other that they thought nobody else noticed the lies.”

    The Rubicon is crossed. We’re not stupid, as you assume.

    Other than explaining the bleedingly obvious in some dashboard detail across multi-channels of the environment….the author fails in any detailed attempt to identify any common elements at work in these sectors aiding and abetting these nefarious efforts, or hold them accountable for their actions. “oy, the system is corrupt.. live w/it”

    The author also fails to hypothesize what if anything, other than Trump, Whites will do as they tire of the 24/7 inundation of: institutional lies, systemic governmental discriminatory anti-White legislation/rhetoric, and open political support of anti-White hate groups on one side, with daily attacks of violence and murder by Blacks on the other.

    We are not going to bend over for it anymore, nor remain silent.

    if (((weissberg))) is so troubled by these developments, he should seek to remedy them by pointing out to his religious/cultural brethren how their continued efforts in this ‘industry’ are contributing to the problems he laments.

    That explains nothing. There is no essential reason why if you key in “American man” African-Americans should predominate. Try “white American man” – you still get African Americans. Try European-American man – you still get blacks.

    KenH, liberalism is a fear of being hated by the more rapine. The average liberal white is more afraid of Blacks, and Muslims than they are of Whites., and the queers the thinking of “liberal”Jews as well. But there is a reason that Jews dominate both sides of the arguments. We are smarter. From the intellectual left, we will get published, have our movies produced, On the intellectual right, we will dominate Talk Radio i.e. Michale Savage.

    As for who jews are depicted in the media when Jews are involved, you might want to research comments within the Jewish community on self hating Jews. It dominates Israeli intellectual culture. As for showing superiority, of Arabs and Muslims over Jews, just watch any Israeli sitcom, any Israeli movie, sit in any Israeli university lecture. As for real life Go to any Arab village in Israel and you will see captive Jewish wives who were seduced.

    If you watch Law & Order SUV, they never make the Jewish character look good, Never sympathetic.

    With all the Jew bashing that Jews in media due, it’s always depicting our women being conquered within the white community. I haven’t see them depicting a Jewish woman seduced by a Black man, or Muslim. they have to challenge their liberalism further.

    The WSJ had a two-day story c. 1990 about a fantastically motivated black fellow in a black DC high school. He was determined to get into an MIT summer program and then unto MIT.

    He did well though not quite as he hoped. Point being that he had to endure abuse from the oxygen thieves at his school who said he was … wait for it … acting white.
