  1. Two questions:
    Who does he mean by “we” and what does he mean by liberation?

    At this point I am for reparations on two conditions:
    all affirmative action, diversity, set aside programs are ended.
    anyone who takes 50% reparations can stay, 100% they renounce citizenship and move to Africa.

    it might be a bargain, at any price.

    At a million pounds a head it would be cheap to send every non-White home, legally and voluntarily and peacefully, and they would be in a great position in their homelands.

    Cheaper than endless welfare and crime and war.

    Better for us and for them.

    @a guy named me

    Even if the Supreme Court outlawed affirmative action, our colleges , institutions and oligarchs would figure out a way to keep using quotas to continue their oppression of whites in America.

    Reparations are just another weapon for them to use against whites and to establish blacks as a type of protected class , like the nobility. They do not seek a one time cash payment , reparations will be a set of permanent government programs and mandates which grants Blacks a guaranteed income and protection from being arrested for most crimes , while also reducing incarceration times for black criminals. They do not seek a one time payment to settle old grievances.

    And of course as usual crickets from the peanut gallery here, as they pontificate like they're just sooooo lofty and sophisticated. Never seen such a bunch of useless "conservatives." Too weak to stand for anything. Your country deserves to die. We already don't have a country because there's no one to defend it, and those who try to get trashed, even by "conservatives."

  4. “Kaepernick was born in 1987 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Heidi Russo, who is white. His birth father, who is African-American (of Ghanaian, Nigerian, and Ivorian ancestry), separated from Russo before Kaepernick was born. Russo placed Kaepernick for adoption with a white couple named Rick and Teresa Kaepernick.”

    In any case, black America failed him from the start. White America supported him.

    Did you see the latest bit, Steve?

    Seattle again… midnight, “protestors” for Black Lives Matter / Defund the Police blocking I-5. They’ve got a van and a car parked crossways, they’re standing on the other side
    Here comes a white car, veers around the van, hit-and-runs into two blue-haired tattooed Darwin Award nominees.

    The Great White Defendant, FINALLY, right?

    Well, not quite. 27 y o Dawit Kelete (guess the ethnicity.) Probably was fleeing police — apparently they’ve had dealings with him before.

    So the punchline… After the event where a black thug — just the kind of guy that childless White women put all their protective maternal instincts toward — puts these two in the hospital and keeps going, somebody of the protestors screams, “Call the police,” which they did.

    Surely you are joking? No British person cares. In fact, a few years ago I even saw pubs advertising Fourth of July celebrations--an example of how our exposure to American culture increasingly blurs the boundaries of what is British and what is American culture. The most recent example being the riots in London over George Floyd.

    I actually wish that what you were saying was true, because if British people did feel slighted over American independence then that would at least intimate an awareness and ownership of British history and a prejudice in favour of their own side that in truth is sadly lacking.

    I think he may need to read up about all the white bodies piling up during the civil war which facilitated not only his existence, but also specifically served to allow him to post this arrogant malarky today, while completely ignoring the multi-billion dollar slave industry currently thriving in black and muslim Africa today.

    So… according to this half-blooded douche, not only did the Civil War never matter, but Black lives that can afford Nike’s matter a little bit more than wretched African black bush people in chains, and especially the 12 year old Viet Namese former farm girls putting in mandated 48 hour weeks for $0.89 an hour, to stitch his Master’s Nike’s before returning to their slave quarters.

    So when someone like me responds with, “Shut up and go clean your Master’s shitty room, you wretched house negro,” it’s not without full and considered qualification.

    With Juneteenth having come from nowhere are being positioned as ‘black 4th of July’. I know Steve likes Google trends.

    The link has a better image that starts at 2008.
    https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&geo=US&q=Juneteenth

    Juneteenth started to spike in 2018. Before that it was a very obscure event that centred on the region around Galveston. It still has the highest search terms in Texas.

    It looks like it was the episode of Black-ish (Titled ‘Juneteenth’) that aired in October of 2017 that set things off. As with Steve’s greater premise of the mixed-race supplying most of the rage, the series is stars and seems to have it’s writing significantly influenced by Tracee Ellis Ross (Much like it’s sister series The Goldbergs, all the characters will sometimes break character and speak in an odd kind of house style and the house style on Black-ish sounds like Tracee Ellis Ross), the daughter of Diana Ross and her Jewish producer Robert Silberstein. (Where the title comes from. Even within the first 30 seconds of the episode, her resentful mother-in-law casually calls her a ‘Halfrican’)

    There is a significant bump the next June in 2018. And an even bigger one in 2019. The media catch up in 2019 after not being a part of the bump in 2018.

    The episode is very interesting to watch in 2020. It actually involves the main character who is an adman trying to come up with a marketing campaign for Juneteenth. Starts with the children acting in a starwman Columbus Day play that depicts him getting along with the natives just fine, organised by the nice white lady teacher who wants to be a good ally but, of course, fundamentally can’t by virtue of her whiteness (And who must be condescended to despite good intentions) and inexplicably doesn’t understand why it’d be offensive to anyone to depict Columbus in this way. There is a cutaway Hamilton-esque stunning and brave deconstruction of Columbus as if we didn’t already know these things about Columbus. As if white America was celebrating Columbus enslaving the population of Hispaniola. As if white America outside some Italians was ever really celebrating Columbus day at all. It then also features a cutaway musical section. (Could a Juneteenth musical do better than Hamilton?)

    https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all_2008&geo=US&gprop=news&q=Juneteenth

    It also contains this line ‘I realised that for Juneteenth to live, Columbus day had to die’. Like an echo of things to come 2.5 years later. But I like how they don’t even touch on it how the KKK and the woke both opposed the statues of Columbus like the one in Virginia that got destroyed that the KKK opposed 100 years prior. The lines about Columbus, including him having never set foot in what is now the US are exactly the reasons presented by WASPs and Irish-Americans in opposing to Columbus statues that were obviously just ethnic totems for Italian-Americans.

    You can view the whole episode here:

    There are plenty of other lines that are Sailerific or amusing to read in 2020.

    [MORE]

    The white coworkers complain that MLK day and black history month are times to celebrate blacks.

    Some of the dialogue is pretty interesting to read in 2020.

    Guy from the ‘FBI open up’ meme, hereafter referred to as ‘Dre’: ‘Juneteenth is a 150 year old tradition that noones heard about, not even my black kids’
    There’s a scene where the white characters suggest this is just a phase like him wearing kente cloth. (Visions of the house democratic leadership borrowing the kente cloth of the CBC and getting hammered by every side for being cringe.)

    Clueless white characters mention MLK day and black history month, black comic relief character adds:
    Deon Cole’s character: ‘And reparations day. That’s when in times of civil unrest we start urban bonfires and acquire discount eletronics.’
    Haven Monahan: ‘Are you talking about looting?’

    Dre: ‘The truth is, we don’t have anything that celebrates the end of slavery’
    Haven Monahan’s dad: ‘MLK day is a pretty big umbrella there. Like Mary Poppins big.’
    Dre: ‘This is insane. You don’t tell white people or Jewish people that they only deserve one holiday.’
    Haven Monahan’s nerdy friend: ‘Well, half that statement is true. *Chuckles* (Never forget blacks and Jews are on the same side viewer! In what America do Jews only have one holiday recognised?)

    The other half of the episode also features a cringy cutaway musical set in Galveston just prior to Juneteenth which contains the weird, actually quite anti-Marxist talking points that African-Americans ‘built America’ when infact chattle slavery was a good way for some men to amass wealth but ultimately retarded the growth and development of industry and was not indispensable to the US economy as the civil war and ending of slavery demonstrated. It certainly didn’t pay for the skyscrapers of Manhattan. It’s odd that no economist had this notion occur to them despite them often being very sympathetic to the civil rights movement and black Americans social and economic marginalisation.

    Dre (Musical): ‘It’s time to vote for me, take part in this democracy’
    Tracee Ellis Ross (Musical): ‘Tear them freedom papers up please cause we don’t need to show no IDs’
    Will Smith’s sassy aunt (Musical): ‘It’s June 19th we celebrate’
    Morpheus (Musical): ‘Grab a blonde and miscegenate’
    Well that escalated quickly…


    Dumb son (Musical): ‘Pyramids… *Gets cut off*
    Will Smith’s sassy aunt (Musical): ‘No, sorry our hebrew brothers get credit for that!’ – This really stands out as jarring, particularly given the line mentioning Jews before. It isn’t historically controversial to say there is no evidence that the Israelites were enslaved to build the pyramids and the consensus today is that the builders weren’t slaves at all or if, the slaves were few in number. Nor is there any evidence that ancient Israelites were the builders, slave or no. Did I mention Tracee Ellis Ross has a Jewish father.

    Dre: ‘This is what America always does, we think if we don’t achknowledge something it didn’t happen. Sure Columbus’ men chopped people’s hands off and made them wear them around their neck. But sure, let’s not talk about that, because that happened so long ago’
    Well, it did happen a long time ago and in a place that isn’t the US. Columbus Day was invented by Italian Americans to do the ‘we built America’ bit he himself is doing. It doesn’t mean anything to non-Italian Americans and his crimes aren’t a blood guilt that can be reasonably applied to white America. And he was censored in his own time for them. What is he asking for? Essentially the character wants self-determination and independence but we don’t have a defined homeland for African Americans and to say so isn’t seen as PC.

    Dre: ‘…What do I want? *stutters* What do I want?! You know what? I’m tired of wasting my breath on ya’ll. I’m out.’

    Tracee Ellis Ross: ‘Juneteenth? When did Juneteenth become important to you Dre, you don’t even celebrate Kwanza’
    Dre: ‘That’s because they make us feel like it’s whack. They make us feel like all of our stuff is whack ‘ – Yes, black music, culture and fashion has never been influential. Maybe they just think Kwanza is a weird attempt to create a ‘black Christmas’ and find it silly. Because it is.
    Morpheus: ‘Kwanza is whack! I know the guy who invented Kwanza, owes me $35.’
    Dre: ‘Pops, think about it. Kwanza is no crazier than Christmas.’

    The whole thing is very eery to watch in 2020. The whole conflating of Columbus with slavery in the US is weird. (Outside just being anti-white and seeing Columbus as the start of ‘white America’.)

    Just that line ‘I realised that for Juneteenth to live, Columbus day had to die’.

    What needs to happen is that things need to get better for blacks in America. We need black participation in America, not black rejection of America. It is their country too. For Colin Kaepernick, raised by a white family and half white himself, to reject America for its whiteness is absurd. For him to encourage the descendants of American slaves to reject America is doing them great harm.

    "What needs to happen is that things need to get better for blacks in America."

    In some crucial ways, it has gotten better for them in America. The combined wealth of African-Americans, if they were a separate nation, would be in the top thirty or twenty in the world, whichever the stat has proclaimed it to be. Much of this wealth has been in the form of direct payments from taxpayers, most of them whites, who have collectively contributed to government programs to help lift them out from problems largely of their own making.

    If after 55 plus years of civil rights, affirmative action, and countless programs explicitly designed to help, uplift, and better the collective lives of blacks has failed, then the time has come for them to take a look in the mirror and realize "You know, maybe, just maybe, it's on us as to why things haven't worked out the way they should have by now." But that would be asking them to collectively assume responsibility, like adults, and attempt to better their lives without direct assistance from white people in particular.

    Is that really too much to ask and expect from them? From children afflicted with arrested development, yes, it is too much to expect. From adults attempting to make their own lives better without help from another race, then no, it isn't too much to ask, much less expect.

    But that would mean that they have to start growing up. And its a bit late in the ballgame for them to want to do so at this time.

    It is probable that they would be able to emigrate to a number of African countries.

    Yeah, he's quite a lot like Obama. This all came out when he first did his NFL kneel a couple of years back, too bad you missed it then.

    We need black participation in America, not black rejection of America. It is their country too.

    Did you catch the interview with Gladys Knight some time back about the pledge of allegiance (in response to people complaining about one of her performances)? The inclination of the black population to maintain this spirit in public life has seen a secular decline, even as the quality of their mundane life improves. We have gentry liberals promoting this. Our gentry liberals are perversely destructive, and we would benefit if every gentry liberal without serious STEM skills were handed a nansen passport, loaded on a plane to Amsterdam and told to never return under pain of long imprisonment and future re-expulsion.

    The decay of civic culture among blacks is nothing the non-black population of wage earners and common-and-garden bourgeois can do a blessed thing about, except to live their lives not intimidated.

    Can you imagine living in a mental cage your whole life? Right here in the USofA, where companies fall all over each other to hire black people who are competent? They imprison themselves in misery, and imagine that racism lurks everywhere.

    It’s unfortunate that Covid came along just as black people were figuring out the advantages of living in a country that put at least some restrictions on immigration. Get off your butt, make yourself useful and get paid more than welfare. I think that some were getting it for the first time in their lives.

    Replies: @Charles, @Achmed E. Newman

    And often companies hire blacks who are demonstrably incompetent.

  65. This brings up a timely anecdote, from just this evening. We set off fireworks with some friends (other parents of kids that are friends of ours). Their house is right on the edge, I mean exactly on the edge of a black neighborhood. The owner had been told that this area was going to be gentrified a lot more than just the few houses up now, but the developer lied, and the city will build more subsidized housing to replace the torn-up ones that were torn down in this location. I.e, this guy got screwed, and they’ll have to sell it when they can, for a loss, I guess.

    Anyway, it was peaceful all around, although I get looks going through that neighborhood from the black people hanging out. (I really like to find the closest to a straight line to get somewhere.) We got there without incident.

    When it was still daylight, I could see the black guys playing B-Ball at a park about 1 1/2 blocks away. The black people had their fireworks, and we had ours. Theirs were about the same level – some $10 to $20 a pop ones, and some smaller rockets and the sparklers for the young kids, but no real professional show stuff.

    Nobody over there talked to anyone over our way, and vice versa. We would have said “hey” to anyone walking by, but we just had our separate but equal fireworks fun. I guess we’re back to 1960 in this sense, but I don’t see a problem with it… peaceful, at least, and with nobody running his mouth like the dumb f__k with that tweet.

    Surely you are joking? No British person cares. In fact, a few years ago I even saw pubs advertising Fourth of July celebrations–an example of how our exposure to American culture increasingly blurs the boundaries of what is British and what is American culture. The most recent example being the riots in London over George Floyd.

    I actually wish that what you were saying was true, because if British people did feel slighted over American independence then that would at least intimate an awareness and ownership of British history and a prejudice in favour of their own side that in truth is sadly lacking.

    Those are interesting cases. I am reminded of the story of the first muslim-american summer camp that was established in the United States.

    They were organized by a white woman who had married a Muslim man.

    White women for all of their flaws do have this matriarchal quality to them that can accomplish these things.

    As well, mixed race children born of a black father and white mother tend to receive their mother's personality, which usually is actually very good.

    So Obama came out okay. He was largely raised by white America. People who have studied him have surmised that if his African father had not abandoned the family and been a presence in young Barack's life, it would have been a very negative influence on him, and so he was blessed that his biological father abandoned him.

    The people who are worst off are mixed race children born to a black mother from a white father. For some reason, black mothers instill this sort of bitter nastiness in those children. You can see the DeBlasio kid. It isn't so bad for the males, but it is horrendous for the females, who lack a good female role model and lack the various feminine habits that makes a woman function in society.

    Yes, obviously. I was referring to stories that seemed to say that the tiny fraction of black people who would vote for Trump had gone up. On the internet, you can actually find black commentators who have turned away from welfare.

    "Male African American and Latino voters — particularly those under the age of 35 — are showing a surprising openness to President Donald Trump’s re-election bid, according to interviews with leading Democratic and Republican strategists and a review of polling data...

    "...even small gains can have big consequences in battleground states like Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, each of which has a sizable black electorate.

    “You’ve seen, especially among men, that there are some demographic splits for President Trump that are more along gender lines than racial lines,” said Mike Shields, a former chief of staff to the Republican National Committee. “There is an opportunity for him to grow his vote.”"

    Reparations are just another weapon for them to use against whites and to establish blacks as a type of protected class , like the nobility. They do not seek a one time cash payment , reparations will be a set of permanent government programs and mandates which grants Blacks a guaranteed income and protection from being arrested for most crimes , while also reducing incarceration times for black criminals. They do not seek a one time payment to settle old grievances.

    With Juneteenth having come from nowhere are being positioned as ‘black 4th of July’. I know Steve likes Google trends.

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Ea48QLNXYAA8sQm.jpg

    The link has a better image that starts at 2008.
    https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&geo=US&q=Juneteenth

    Juneteenth started to spike in 2018. Before that it was a very obscure event that centred on the region around Galveston. It still has the highest search terms in Texas.

    It looks like it was the episode of Black-ish (Titled 'Juneteenth') that aired in October of 2017 that set things off. As with Steve's greater premise of the mixed-race supplying most of the rage, the series is stars and seems to have it’s writing significantly influenced by Tracee Ellis Ross (Much like it’s sister series The Goldbergs, all the characters will sometimes break character and speak in an odd kind of house style and the house style on Black-ish sounds like Tracee Ellis Ross), the daughter of Diana Ross and her Jewish producer Robert Silberstein. (Where the title comes from. Even within the first 30 seconds of the episode, her resentful mother-in-law casually calls her a 'Halfrican')

    There is a significant bump the next June in 2018. And an even bigger one in 2019. The media catch up in 2019 after not being a part of the bump in 2018.

    The episode is very interesting to watch in 2020. It actually involves the main character who is an adman trying to come up with a marketing campaign for Juneteenth. Starts with the children acting in a starwman Columbus Day play that depicts him getting along with the natives just fine, organised by the nice white lady teacher who wants to be a good ally but, of course, fundamentally can't by virtue of her whiteness (And who must be condescended to despite good intentions) and inexplicably doesn't understand why it'd be offensive to anyone to depict Columbus in this way. There is a cutaway Hamilton-esque stunning and brave deconstruction of Columbus as if we didn't already know these things about Columbus. As if white America was celebrating Columbus enslaving the population of Hispaniola. As if white America outside some Italians was ever really celebrating Columbus day at all. It then also features a cutaway musical section. (Could a Juneteenth musical do better than Hamilton?)

    https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all_2008&geo=US&gprop=news&q=Juneteenth

    It also contains this line 'I realised that for Juneteenth to live, Columbus day had to die'. Like an echo of things to come 2.5 years later. But I like how they don't even touch on it how the KKK and the woke both opposed the statues of Columbus like the one in Virginia that got destroyed that the KKK opposed 100 years prior. The lines about Columbus, including him having never set foot in what is now the US are exactly the reasons presented by WASPs and Irish-Americans in opposing to Columbus statues that were obviously just ethnic totems for Italian-Americans.

    You can view the whole episode here:
    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7t3j99

    There are plenty of other lines that are Sailerific or amusing to read in 2020.


    The white coworkers complain that MLK day and black history month are times to celebrate blacks.

    Some of the dialogue is pretty interesting to read in 2020.

    Guy from the 'FBI open up' meme, hereafter referred to as 'Dre': 'Juneteenth is a 150 year old tradition that noones heard about, not even my black kids'
    There's a scene where the white characters suggest this is just a phase like him wearing kente cloth. (Visions of the house democratic leadership borrowing the kente cloth of the CBC and getting hammered by every side for being cringe.)

    Clueless white characters mention MLK day and black history month, black comic relief character adds:
    Deon Cole's character: 'And reparations day. That's when in times of civil unrest we start urban bonfires and acquire discount eletronics.'
    Haven Monahan: 'Are you talking about looting?'

    Dre: 'The truth is, we don't have anything that celebrates the end of slavery'
    Haven Monahan's dad: 'MLK day is a pretty big umbrella there. Like Mary Poppins big.'
    Dre: 'This is insane. You don't tell white people or Jewish people that they only deserve one holiday.'
    Haven Monahan's nerdy friend: 'Well, half that statement is true. *Chuckles*' (Never forget blacks and Jews are on the same side viewer! In what America do Jews only have one holiday recognised?)

    The other half of the episode also features a cringy cutaway musical set in Galveston just prior to Juneteenth which contains the weird, actually quite anti-Marxist talking points that African-Americans 'built America' when infact chattle slavery was a good way for some men to amass wealth but ultimately retarded the growth and development of industry and was not indispensable to the US economy as the civil war and ending of slavery demonstrated. It certainly didn't pay for the skyscrapers of Manhattan. It's odd that no economist had this notion occur to them despite them often being very sympathetic to the civil rights movement and black Americans social and economic marginalisation.

    Dre (Musical): 'It's time to vote for me, take part in this democracy'
    Tracee Ellis Ross (Musical): 'Tear them freedom papers up please cause we don't need to show no IDs'
    Will Smith's sassy aunt (Musical): 'It's June 19th we celebrate'
    Morpheus (Musical): 'Grab a blonde and miscegenate'
    Well that escalated quickly...

    ...
    Dumb son (Musical): 'Pyramids... *Gets cut off*'
    Will Smith's sassy aunt (Musical): 'No, sorry our hebrew brothers get credit for that!' - This really stands out as jarring, particularly given the line mentioning Jews before. It isn't historically controversial to say there is no evidence that the Israelites were enslaved to build the pyramids and the consensus today is that the builders weren't slaves at all or if, the slaves were few in number. Nor is there any evidence that ancient Israelites were the builders, slave or no. Did I mention Tracee Ellis Ross has a Jewish father.


    Dre: 'This is what America always does, we think if we don't achknowledge something it didn't happen. Sure Columbus' men chopped people's hands off and made them wear them around their neck. But sure, let's not talk about that, because that happened so long ago'
    Well, it did happen a long time ago and in a place that isn't the US. Columbus Day was invented by Italian Americans to do the 'we built America' bit he himself is doing. It doesn't mean anything to non-Italian Americans and his crimes aren't a blood guilt that can be reasonably applied to white America. And he was censored in his own time for them. What is he asking for? Essentially the character wants self-determination and independence but we don't have a defined homeland for African Americans and to say so isn't seen as PC.

    Dre: '...What do I want? *stutters* What do I want?! You know what? I'm tired of wasting my breath on ya'll. I'm out.'

    Tracee Ellis Ross: 'Juneteenth? When did Juneteenth become important to you Dre, you don't even celebrate Kwanza'
    Dre: 'That's because they make us feel like it's whack. They make us feel like all of our stuff is whack ' - Yes, black music, culture and fashion has never been influential. Maybe they just think Kwanza is a weird attempt to create a 'black Christmas' and find it silly. Because it is.
    Morpheus: 'Kwanza is whack! I know the guy who invented Kwanza, owes me $35.'
    Dre: 'Pops, think about it. Kwanza is no crazier than Christmas.'

    The whole thing is very eery to watch in 2020. The whole conflating of Columbus with slavery in the US is weird. (Outside just being anti-white and seeing Columbus as the start of 'white America'.)

    Just that line 'I realised that for Juneteenth to live, Columbus day had to die'.

Jason Whitlock was dead on about this guy. Copernicus can go celebrate his nike air jordans just like he does every other night of the year. The more I think about it, black people are constantly & raucously celebrating frivolous trifles. Urban dictionary defines “jive” as trying really hard to act cool. It’s interesting that they often use these terms as insults, because in aggregate they are the definition of jive and trifling. Most of the celebrating you see out of them 364 days a year is fake, jive BS. So when they see white people celebrating the 4th with good barbecue, good fireworks, and good music they must be enraged. After all white people are supposed to be squares right? I’m starting to think this July 4th hate has less to do with things that happened 200 years ago, and more to do with jealousy that white people are having a legitimately good time. I’m too happy this weekend to care about losers like copernicus. He can go back to sitting in his basement and working on growing out his bizarre lobotomy hair style.

Few blacks have the means to be considered as immigrants in any other country. It is cruel and crazy to tell them to reject America and what it stands for.

    What needs to happen is that things need to get better for blacks in America. We need black participation in America, not black rejection of America. It is their country too. For Colin Kaepernick, raised by a white family and half white himself, to reject America for its whiteness is absurd. For him to encourage the descendants of American slaves to reject America is doing them great harm.

    Did you catch the interview with Gladys Knight some time back about the pledge of allegiance (in response to people complaining about one of her performances)? The inclination of the black population to maintain this spirit in public life has seen a secular decline, even as the quality of their mundane life improves. We have gentry liberals promoting this. Our gentry liberals are perversely destructive, and we would benefit if every gentry liberal without serious STEM skills were handed a nansen passport, loaded on a plane to Amsterdam and told to never return under pain of long imprisonment and future re-expulsion.

    The decay of civic culture among blacks is nothing the non-black population of wage earners and common-and-garden bourgeois can do a blessed thing about, except to live their lives not intimidated. That’s tough right now, because the professional-managerial types fire your ass and trash you to other employers.

    It’s unfortunate that Covid came along just as black people were figuring out the advantages of living in a country that put at least some restrictions on immigration. Get off your butt, make yourself useful and get paid more than welfare. I think that some were getting it for the first time in their lives.

    Yes, obviously. I was referring to stories that seemed to say that the tiny fraction of black people who would vote for Trump had gone up. On the internet, you can actually find black commentators who have turned away from welfare.

    “Male African American and Latino voters — particularly those under the age of 35 — are showing a surprising openness to President Donald Trump’s re-election bid, according to interviews with leading Democratic and Republican strategists and a review of polling data…

    “…even small gains can have big consequences in battleground states like Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, each of which has a sizable black electorate.

    “You’ve seen, especially among men, that there are some demographic splits for President Trump that are more along gender lines than racial lines,” said Mike Shields, a former chief of staff to the Republican National Committee. “There is an opportunity for him to grow his vote.””

    I suppose I should have written “some black people were figuring out the advantages”…

    Of course, Colin Kapaernick was born to a white mother and a black father. The black father abandoned him early and so he was given up for adoption to a white couple who raised him and nurtured him so that he could play in the NFL. Has he ever met his father? The answer is unclear.

    In any case, black America failed him from the start. White America supported him.

    Guess who he identifies with.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8490745/PICTURED-Seattle-protesters-condition-hit-car.html

    Two protesters at a BLM protest on I-5 were hit by a car. The driver is some klansman named Dawit Kelete, so the racist white power structure will undoubtedly suppress this story. It's not clear, but the Washington State Troopers appear to have blocked off a stretch of the Freeway for what I guess has become a nightly protest, rather than just arresting them all.

    Replies: @JerseyJeffersonian

    No, I saw an internet “account”, but the race of this Kelete fellow was not mentioned. Neither was his first name of Dawit, which might have put some to thinking about why we are all being consciously manipulated to just assume that the driver was some White Rayciss.

    All of these significant omissions were by design, of course.

    Surely you are joking? No British person cares. In fact, a few years ago I even saw pubs advertising Fourth of July celebrations--an example of how our exposure to American culture increasingly blurs the boundaries of what is British and what is American culture. The most recent example being the riots in London over George Floyd.

    I actually wish that what you were saying was true, because if British people did feel slighted over American independence then that would at least intimate an awareness and ownership of British history and a prejudice in favour of their own side that in truth is sadly lacking.

    "What needs to happen is that things need to get better for blacks in America."

    In some crucial ways, it has gotten better for them in America. The combined wealth of African-Americans, if they were a separate nation, would be in the top thirty or twenty in the world, whichever the stat has proclaimed it to be. Much of this wealth has been in the form of direct payments from taxpayers, most of them whites, who have collectively contributed to government programs to help lift them out from problems largely of their own making.

    If after 55 plus years of civil rights, affirmative action, and countless programs explicitly designed to help, uplift, and better the collective lives of blacks has failed, then the time has come for them to take a look in the mirror and realize "You know, maybe, just maybe, it's on us as to why things haven't worked out the way they should have by now." But that would be asking them to collectively assume responsibility, like adults, and attempt to better their lives without direct assistance from white people in particular.

    Is that really too much to ask and expect from them? From children afflicted with arrested development, yes, it is too much to expect. From adults attempting to make their own lives better without help from another race, then no, it isn't too much to ask, much less expect.

    But that would mean that they have to start growing up. And its a bit late in the ballgame for them to want to do so at this time.

    Definitely something to the theory that mixed race people are pushing a lot of the recent unrest. (As in Haitian revolution). It would be interesting to compare black father/white mother to white father/ black mother and immigrant black father (ie obama's) to native, and so on.

    Replies: @Bucky

    Those are interesting cases. I am reminded of the story of the first muslim-american summer camp that was established in the United States.

    They were organized by a white woman who had married a Muslim man.

    White women for all of their flaws do have this matriarchal quality to them that can accomplish these things.

    As well, mixed race children born of a black father and white mother tend to receive their mother’s personality, which usually is actually very good.

    So Obama came out okay. He was largely raised by white America. People who have studied him have surmised that if his African father had not abandoned the family and been a presence in young Barack’s life, it would have been a very negative influence on him, and so he was blessed that his biological father abandoned him.

    The people who are worst off are mixed race children born to a black mother from a white father. For some reason, black mothers instill this sort of bitter nastiness in those children. You can see the DeBlasio kid. It isn’t so bad for the males, but it is horrendous for the females, who lack a good female role model and lack the various feminine habits that makes a woman function in society.

    Its kind of a 4th of July middle finger to Independence Day. He was broadly smiling and seeming to want to make eye contact with other drivers.
