The unforgivable fact of 2020 is that white men have done most of the great things of the last 600 years. This deeply angers many nonwhite people today that their ancestors didn’t accomplish much.

As T.S. Eliot asked: After such knowledge, what forgiveness?

    I’m not accusing Jefferson or Washington of having any particular bad thoughts. But let us assume they weren’t perfect. As a Christian, that would be my guess.

    As Noam Chomsky pointed out during the Cold War, this is a very dangerous road to go down. He was always withering in his contempt for anyone who criticized him standing up for something because “don’t know you know [x] on ‘your side’ also said or did [Z]?”

    He said he found it curious no Americans ever asked him for his problems with Soviet dissidents he supported. Probably they didn’t know anything about them. But Chomsky did and he had very serious issues with many famous Soviet exiles lauded by the West. He just didn’t think his disagreements with them were worth bringing up in a petition to keep them out of the gulag.

  3. “their descendents didn’t accomplish much.” I think you meant ancestors or antecedents.

  4. Jake says:

    It does not anger ONLY many non-whites. It also angers a heaping helping of whites – those in full throttle war to exterminate whatever might remain of Christendom. The people who built and ran Christendom were white men. Hence, total war against Christ and Christendom must be total war against all white men who are not anti-Christ and anti-Christendom. And it also must be against those white women who bear future white men.

    It is about race, but only because of Christ and Christendom.

  8. That frame of mind is best termed ressentiment of the non-franchised. Justifiable perhaps for promulgating the French revolution of 1789. Resentment as a life-style can be maintained indefinitely. Think Bernie Sanders. The resenter may accomplish nothing in life but it is in fact something to hold on to. In other words, a viable psycholological posture that can be maintained until death. Resentment is a kind of hate.

    The other side of the coin is that a plausible ideol0gy was invented in past decades, the insidious opinion that the system is the great oppressor. That is Foucault’s great insight. The fact that he was a tortured homosexual who contracted AIDS in San Franciso bathhouses and died of it is pertinent. Foucaultism has been inculcated in all universities for decades and the overwhelming majority of not too intelligent college graduates believe it. It is not amusing to note that when the mob stormed the Bastille, it turned out that it contained very few politically dissident prisoners under the cachet of the king enjoying full privileges. Think Adolf Hitler in Landsberg prison in 1924. It is indisputable that mankind needs some kind of social power arrangement ever since cities came into existence. That all societies are based on the rulers exploiting the ruled does not preclude that individuals may lead meaningful existences in that system.

  11. It isn’t so much that it “deeply angers many nonwhite people today that their ancestors didn’t accomplish much.” It is mainly white wokesters who find this historical reality an intolerable affront to their notion of human universal equality as a sacred moral absolute.

  12. The plain fact is that the blame-casting propaganda has really penetrated into white people’s souls. They are taught in their universities that their history is unforgivable, and the regnant media reinforce the same message. All we really need is one or a few brave white politicians or other public figures to stand up and refuse to accept the guilt. Tell the propagandists to go fish. Trump does this, but then he cuts the grass out from under his feet.

    What is the psychological benefit to believing we are all equal? Is it a refusal to grow up and leave a Disney like mental state where lions are just sweet cats who don’t kill and eat gazelles? Or that sickness and infirmity don’t exist unless they are a plot point?

    they considered inequality so obvious that it didn’t need saying.

    A lot of the contemporary discourse is about denying the obvious. Racial differences, sexual differences, even the fact that men and women are biologically different. No one denied those things because they were clear even to the naked eye. We, supposedly smarter, can’t see what’s in front of our nose.

    Yep.

    The atrocities of the 20th century committed against peoples sometimes include a horrifying theme. The peoples against whom the atrocities were committed didn’t know or believe they would have atrocities committed against them until those atrocities were actually in train. They ignored warning signs, believed appeasement was sufficient, even regarded the grievances of their tormentors as having sufficient weight to justify the bad treatment delivered to the massive number of innocents among them.

    America’s feckless Whites seem to me the next in line for “special treatment”. Are they so clueless as to believe this will end with the renaming of university buildings and the removal of statues?

    This is a hyperbole at best and one that has little basis in reality. The most one can say factually is that a small group of radicals – both white and nonwhite – has seized control of the ideological agenda of the mainstream in America and has launched a pro-black, anti-white campaign.*

    The hyperbole is also a parochially American one in that it projects the views of a segment of the nonwhite population in U.S. on to the vast legions of nonwhites world-wide. I doubt the vast masses of the world think about the great achievements of the past 600 years, let alone be angry that their ancestors didn’t achieve those things.

    Mr. Sailer’s assertion here is merely another variation of ego self-stroking “The terrorists hate us Americans for our freedom” line of thinking, only this time it’s “They hate us whites, because our ancestors were so awesome.”

    Among those many “great things of the last 600 years” are not just the accomplishments of people like Darwin, Newton, and Shakespeare.

    Think of the stonemasons and other craftsmen who built the great cathedrals. Back then, there were no calculators or even slide rules, yet their magnificent works of art have stood for centuries. They still inspire, and mock the mediocrity of the last several generations of architects. Can you think of one recent building constructed in a major Western city that will last for centuries?

    Or the mostly forgotten inventors and craftsmen who built the musical instruments used in Western music. Woodworking and machine tools? How many ingenious shop tools can you think of? Steam engines, turbines, propellors, railroads, shipbuilding, modern mines and factories? Metal alloys, petroleum, natural gas, other compressed gases, other useful natural products, chemicals and chemical engineering processes? How many white workmen were maimed or died horrible deaths from fire, explosions, unspeakably gruesome industrial accidents, etc. while being the discoverers of these routine but essential aspects of modernity? Electricity? How many white men died agonizing deaths on the job in the early days of electricity? And who discovered the methods and practices that effectively eliminated or greatly reduced the hazards–for everyone–who now works with modern machinery, chemicals, and electricity in their daily lives?

    There were–and still are–good women who sustained white working class men despite the latter’s weaknesses and failings. Most did their best to raise children that would emulate the unspoken virtues of worthy, respected fathers.

    It was the white working class that was first dispossessed of their dignity and achievements and had their sacrifices forgotten. Then their children who made it to the middle class as engineers and managers saw their careers off-shored. Obliteration of the top of the pantheon of white male achievement is “all that’s left”, if you’ll pardon the pun.

    There’s a new paper out from Lawrence Mead of New York University and the architect of the Clinton welfare reforms (gotta work to get the money):

    Poverty and Culture
    Springer Nature
    https://doi.org/10.1007/s12115-020-00496-1

    He basically endorses Steve’s Katrina theories.

    http://www.terpconnect.umd.edu/~pnc/temp/Mead2020_Article_PovertyAndCulture.pdf

    Poverty persists in America even amidst the world’s richest nation. Attempts to attribute longterm poverty to social barriers, such as racial discrimination or lack of jobs, have failed. Some scholars now attribute poverty to culture in the sense that many poor become disillusioned and no longer seek to advance themselves. More plausible is cultural difference. The United States has an individualist culture, derived from Europe, where most people seek to achieve personal goals. Racial minorities, however, all come from non-Western cultures where most people seek to adjust to outside conditions rather than seeking change. Another difference is that Westerners are moralistic about social order, demanding that behavior respect universal principles, while in the non-West norms are less rigid and depend mostly on the expectations of others. These differences best explain why minorities— especially blacks and Hispanics—typically respond only weakly to chances to get ahead through education and work, and also why crime and other social problems run high in low-income areas. The black middle class has converted to an individualist style and thus advanced, but most blacks have not. Government has recently reduced crime and welfare in poor areas, but the ultimate solution to poverty is for the poor themselves to adopt the more inner-driven individualist style.

    How did this get accepted? And will it be disappeared before publication in the paper journal? Will it be unpublished?

    Academics blame black social problems on white oppres- sion. By that logic, the problems should have been worst prior to the civil rights reforms in the 1960s. But in fact the opposite occurred. The collapse of the black family occurred mostly after civil rights rather than before. Most blacks came from a highly collective society in Africa, then lived under slavery and Jim Crow in the South. Those structures kept disorder at a low level. In that era, black levels of crime and female- headedness were not much higher than among whites.

    One hopes, but my experience with older Democrats is that not only do they not see that their past, present and future support of the Left was, is and will be a Mistake, but that they maintain via Rube Goldberg logic that all bad political events since 2016 are somehow the fault of Trump or the absurdly pervasive hidden hand of White Supremacy. They really are immune to logic and even experience on this point. If only the sinister Russians had not prevented Hillary from her rightful ascent to the Throne, none of this would be happening, is how they see it. Yes, it is completely laughable and they are completely immovable on this point. They will continue to believe it even as BLM looters break into their homes and slit their throats.

    Because these people plan to die with their delusions firmly held in their cold dead hands, the most you can do is to make sure that such people are in no way responsible for the safety of anyone else you care about, lest the deluded inadvertently take them along to their doom.

    P.S. OTOH, kudos to Christakis for cleverly tweeting MLK and Gandhi in front of Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln as human shields. Too bad it won’t make any difference.

Fisher and Pearson contributed greatly to statistics and statistical practices — you can’t have any sort of knowledge in the field without knowing about t-tests and rank correlations — and in the near future this might prove a handy way of discrediting those pesky things called “data” and “analysis”.

    I lived in Taipei for a year and got to the Museum many times. It is indescribable if you have never seen it.

    During WW II the Nationalists emptied out the Palace Museum in the Forbidden City to hide from the Japanese. About 22% of the works were taken to Taiwan to hide from the Communists. These included many of the best works, dating back 8000 years. As massive as the museum is, they can only show 1% of the collection at any given time. They rotate every few months. It takes decades to show the entire collection.

    The story I heard is that the Nationalists carved out a nuclear bomb proof shelter in a cave to store the other 99%. So even if we have nuclear holocaust Chinese culture will survive.

    The catastrophic impact of desegregation on POC was not predicted by desegregation’s advocates (although the opponents understood it rather well).

    And because of the way it was sold to white America, including my younger self, POC were and are perfectly entitled to believe that inequality was caused by bad laws (rather than the other way around), and that removing the bad laws would, ipso facto, remove the inequality.

    Now that this has not happened, our children and grandchildren have to choose between “systemic racism” and “nature” to explain the observed facts. They learn, starting at age 3 from cartoons and read-to-me stories, all the way through their PhDs, that only the first explanation is correct.

    Here is the final resting place of the leaders of the Münster Rebellion

    After lengthy resistance, the city was taken by the besiegers on June 24, 1535 and John of Leiden and several other prominent Anabaptist leaders were captured and imprisoned. In January 1536 John of Leiden, Bernhard Knipperdolling and one more prominent follower, Bernhard Krechting, were tortured and executed in the marketplace of Münster. Their bodies were exhibited in cages which hung from the steeple of St. Lambert’s Church. The bones were removed later, but the cages hang there still.

    @Twinkie

    Deep down, this anger (and that’s what it really is – anger, which is why it turns to violence) comes from two things (and both are necessary):

    1. A realization that you are part of history’s losing tribe. Maybe your ancestors had “it” at one time (true in the case of Asians and Arabs, imaginary in the case of blacks), but at some point they lost the thread and everything that you see around you is mostly the product of another (the white) race. You can’t really do anything about that past except cry sour grapes. All those dead white guys whose names are carved into stone who are supposedly the heroes that conquered diseases, etc. – they weren’t so hot anyway.

    2. A feeling that your tribe is now in the ascendancy. True losers are cowed and don’t dare raise their heads or voices but you sense that the other tribe is fading and that now is the time to turn the tables and put your tribe on top and make up for all the past humiliations. The winning tribe always defaces the gods of the losers. This is as old as Abraham smashing the idols of Baal.

    Are there deluded whites who are in the camp of the enemy? Certainly yes, a lot of them. But this is being driven by non-white (mainly black) anger and the whites are just hitching their wagon to this anger because they have their own reasons to be angry about the way life has turned out for them.

    Or in some cases (Hollywood stars) they don’t but they want to be seen as fashionably Leftist – Wolfe’s “Radical Chic”.

    What’s needed is to make them feel pain and make them afraid of feeling pain so that they think twice before they attempt to cancel someone.

    This is half of it. The other half is that the mob doesn’t go after leftist icons. They haven’t yet come for Franklin Roosevelt, who incarcerated virtually the entire Japanese American population. Of course, blacks don’t care much for Asians, but FDR was rather adamant about maintaining segregation as well.

    The current dividing line seems to be the New Deal era (after 1932). Before that, leftists like Wilson are fair game. We’ll see if this holds.

    Maybe your ancestors had “it” at one time (true in the case of Asians and Arabs, imaginary in the case of blacks), but at some point they lost the thread and everything that you see around you is mostly the product of another (the white) race. You can’t really do anything about that past except cry sour grapes.

    The main problem with this assertion is that – aside from the fact that this is most likely projection – this BLM movement as such did not begin in the “nonwhite” countries. It began in the U.S. and spread to other Western countries first. Eventually there was a handful of events elsewhere such as Japan, but there the BLM rhetoric wasn’t directed at whites (let alone achievements of Europeans and North Americans in the past 600 years), but at the racism of the Japanese toward blacks who live in Japan.

    In places like Japan and South Korea, there is little if any controversy about the European/North American achievements in the modern era. They recognize them, admire them, and seek to imitate AND exceed them. In other parts of the “nonwhite” world – such as India – there is perhaps a greater resentment toward Europeans, but much of it is “anti-colonial” sentiment (which, though similar, is not quite like the pro-black/anti-white duality in the U.S.).

    A feeling that your tribe is now in the ascendancy. True losers are cowed and don’t dare raise their heads or voices but you sense that the other tribe is fading

    Blacks are not “in the ascendancy” in the U.S. The economic and academic gaps between blacks and whites/Asians continue to persist (and in some cases widen) and, as the Hispanic/Asian population fractions increase, black demographic heft is decreasing relatively in the U.S. (indeed, blacks are no longer the largest minority group). So I would speculate that, if anything, blacks feel and understand their coming decline very well, and this explosion of violence is a kind of death throes of black political power in the U.S. (which has always existed at white liberal sufferance). And these death throes are being utilized by GoodWhites to strike at their ideological/cultural nemesis BadWhites. A comparison to the Cultural Revolution in China is not a bad one.

    In this case you definitely aren’t wrong.

    The Halloween costume incident happened in September 2016, before Trump was even elected. Since that time Professor Christakis has contributed to the campaigns of Anne Kuster (D), in 2018, and to Natalia Linos (D), just a few weeks ago, two weeks after the George Floyd insanity began. His wife, Erika, contributed to Joe Biden back in March.

    Keep feeding the crocodiles, Dr. & Mrs. Christakis. Perhaps they will come for you last.

    Incidentally, their donor records at OpenSecrets.org indicate that they now live in Norwich, Vermont, population 3,414. Norwich is 95.18% non-Hispanic White. It has more Asians (1.61%) than blacks (0.48%), Hispanics (0.79%) and Native Americans (0.20%) combined.

    But that’s ok, because compared to Windsor County, in which it sits, Norwich is practically the United Nations. Windsor County is 96.90% non-Hispanic white and only 0.33% black. And that’s in Vermont, the second whitest state (94.3% non-Hispanic white) in the nation.

    Christakis lives in an America that David Duke can only fantasize about, but votes for anarchy for the rest of us.

    I remember the rich girl shouting at him in his face like she was having a full-on breakdown. He had no response.

    It didn’t matter that he was a high ranking faculty member and she was a student. All that mattered in that moment was she was a black women who said what she was doing was in the name of her ethnicity. He had no moral authority over her and she knew it, so she screamed in his face for the crime of politely talking to them.

    More and more blacks and non-whites have realised this, most never really believed it even though American and now Western comedy has a whole subgenre of humour based on it, they couldn’t empathise with it. And yet it moves, the cops retreated, every company bowed, every public figure either endorsed them or said nothing.

    Every native white is alone, every native white is an individualist, their group has no legitimacy to pursue it’s collective interests or even existence. It doesn’t matter if there are 100 of them and 1 black person at their work or in public, the black person is backed up by social media and their ethnicity. Each white person is on their own, facing an invisible army.

    Interestingly, the same 2014 US flash campus protests about nothing in particular inspired the ‘Fallist’ movement in South Africa that left nearly every university with massive damages and almost sparked a broader youth protest moment. Some big marches and riots outside the universities but it fizzled out.

    If Republicans do manage to win this November – not likely, but possible….

    Well, that ‘not likely’ depends entirely on how much cheating/fixing/Russian vote-counting the traitorous media allows them to get away with. (This explains the alarmist clucking by Hillary, Biden, et al, that ‘he’s going to refuse to leave!’)

    But in a more-or-less fair fight? I have little doubt that Trump will win re-election handily. If people are afraid to announce their political conservatism, as we all know they are, and rightly so (the blacks and white chillun of affluence will hurt them, their families, and deface/burn their property; the older white media and academic parasites will damage their profession/livelihood with every breath in their body), they’re going to tell pollsters only what they think they want to hear. They won’t even refuse to participate in the poll, since that might be a ‘tell’ which may well boomerang on them; remember that whites must now factor in potential blowback should the Party of Orcs seize power, another chill-factor inhibiting honest responses.

    However.

    If the polls stay open and the contest is fought fairly, a great many more people than any poll or Beltway-expert analysis can possibly account for are going to step behind that curtain, and all they will be seeing and thinking about are barbaric subhumans looting and burning and assaulting and running riot like every civilization’s nightmare of gotterdammerung come uncomfortably alive – and they’re going to pull the only lever that holds out the promise, however empty, of the grownups regaining control. (My own hope is Trump pulling a page out of Obama’s bloody book, when he traded second-term lame duck for scorched earth fare-thee-well.)

    There is a price to pay for holding a serrated knife to a nation’s throat, when everyone has to hit pause so the hostages can all vote. It usually ends up with androgynous mental patients on their knees, howling at the sky.

    There was an extremely effective Reagan ad in 1980 aimed at Democratic voters, of a Dem father and son heading out to vote but with deep reservations about their party’s candidate, in which the old man tells his son “Son – once you step behind that curtain, no one can tell you who to vote for.” (Don’t look for it; it’s likely been purged off of every “public” platform, though you can find plenty of anti-Trump testimonials from the atheist ballerina and the moth-eaten nude centerfold Reagan sired, and of course the evergreen anti-Goldwater ‘countdown’ ad). Momentarily ‘mislaid’ or not, the Trump people would do well to run it, or “reimagine” it – either way, the atheist ballerina will be airlifted to the MSNBC green room to pearl-clutch at the shamelessness of it all.

    In places like Japan and South Korea, there is little if any controversy about the European/North American achievements in the modern era. They recognize them, admire them, and seek to imitate AND exceed them.

    This is the difference between Asians and blacks. “Living well is the best revenge.” Asians have the intellectual ability to meet and as you say, possibly even exceed Western achievements and living standards. You are jealous of people who have MORE than you, not less. Blacks know that they have no realistic chance to equal white people intellectually or financially except by government imposition or undocumented shopping, so they pursue the path that is most realistically available to them. Unlike Asians, they are always and forever going to be the losers in the intellectual and economic market under free market conditions so they want to do away with intellectual and economic freedom.

    this explosion of violence is a kind of death throes of black political power in the U.S.

    It’s possible that blacks sense on some level that their power will slip away in the future and so BLM is kind of their last best chance to permanently enshrine their gains. Once Robert E. Lee is down, he ain’t coming back even if later on Richmond becomes Richemondo. In that sense BLM is a little like Trumpism where fading whites rallied for one last time (or maybe two) before demographics overtook them. As Trump showed, it’s easy to prematurely declare a group demographically irrelevant – it may be that black power will linger in the Democrat party for a long time after they no longer are the most demographically important minority. As the Jews have shown, there is more to political power than sheer numbers.

    The protests you’re referencing inspired the ‘Fallist’ protests in South Africa through social media. Though it eventually became a broader protest movement that fizzled out dealing with real issues like corruption, poverty, outsourcing jobs etc, the initial ‘Rhodes Must Fall’ protest was purely critical race theory in it’s aesthetic.

    In fact I’d go so far to say that the ‘Fallist’ protests on South African campuses inspired a lot of what we’ve been seeing the last 2 months. ‘Decolonise’ used to be a South African term, for obvious reasons. But there were enough black South African students in London who introduced the term there for local use, trying to get Rhodes’ name and statues removed. How do you ‘decolonise’ A Western country? By removing the indigenous people and their history.

    A good suggestion that Republicans will never do. It’s time to stop believing any current political party is going to save the old republic whatever we do we do ourselves.

  89. It would take too long for a detailed analysis. So, just a few impressions….

    1. all these analyses are, naturally, US-centric. But the “world” is different. In the world, blacks don’t exist as a factor. They have a tiny layer of people who actually can think, but most of them don’t think about anything. Africa is nothing, and they know it’s nothing, just Euro-American-Chinese slavery plantation; blacks in Latin America are kept down as irrelevant. Only in the US & perhaps UK they are something (music, sports,..), but they know they owe most of their lives to the white guilt & the media. Without it, they would be like blacks in the Caribbean or Colombia-nothing.

    BLM is more of a front for antifa & similar, mostly white anarcho-terrorist groups. Real black radicalism of the 60s, like Black panthers, had vanished (along with dreams of Africa rising, negritude & decolonization). Marginally aware blacks know they’re lost without white guilt.

    2. Antifa etc. are a rehash of the 60s radicalism without global appeal of the New Age, drugs & naive fads like human potential movement, neo-Marxist eclecticism etc. The rise of consumerist China combined with some kind of desperate materialism & conformism in the affluent West made this era somehow pre-apocalyptic for most of wealthy West, both in the Anglosphere & elsewhere. There is no global Communist threat; there are no-go zones in wealth Western towns; there is less freedom of the press in the world; people are generally more conformist, hopeless, materialist, dumber & cowardly than half a century ago. People don’t have children because thy lost hope in the future.

    3. as for other non-whites, east Asians are, give or take, with regard to the future around zero or in the plus region. They know how to make stuff & know they’ll survive. Indians are a mess, and the only thing that keeps them together is Hinduism plus aversion to Islam. They are too complex and dependent on the West to be compared with east Asians (for instance, the best universities in the east are in Chinese or Japanese; in India, they are in English). Hindu Indians remain global Anglo colony- unlike China, Korea, Thailand, Japan, …

    Global Islamistan is too dumb & they know it. They rely solely on reproductive biology. Arabs’ hopes for pan-Arab nationalism, from the 50s to the 90s, have evaporated due to two elements: a) always losing to Israel, b) more importantly- Islamic world has shown itself to be unreformable. That’s why the rise of pan-Islamic ideology & re-Islamization of Turkey. They cannot be modernized, they’ll always lag behind, and are well aware of it.

    Latinos are too differentiated, but they are, by now, aware that no revolutionary politics works & their whole hope is to build on their Western heritage.

    Other races feel like subjects of Western power long after colonialism, imperialism, and slavery have disappeared.
    The charge of racism puzzles whites who feel not hostility, but only baffled good will, because they don’t grasp what it really means: humiliation.
    The white man presents an image of superiority even when he isn’t conscious of it.
    And, superiority excites envy.
    Destroying white civilization is the inmost desire of the league of designated victims we call minorities.”

    I agree, Jack, that blacks feel in ascendency at the moment; I would say they feel invulnerable to punishment and even rebuke, and are taking advantage of the situation. Whether they believe it to be a permanent one is open to question: it’s enough that they can loot and yell for the present. The future doesn’t seem to loom large in their calculations.

    I disagree that blacks are “angry” or embarrassed at their lack of cultural achievement. Regardless of the heroic myths we’re all supposed to bow to every February, blacks in my experience are not very motivated by a consciousness of achievement, but just of “being.” Their homegrown heroes are mostly people with a freakish natural ability (like athletic performance, or musical ability). Whites admire a Michael Jordan for his discipline and work ethic. Most blacks admire him for his display of talent on the court.

    My take on the current ructions is that it’s some kind of result of the breakdown of a cherished myth that supported American democracy, especially during the Cold War. That’s the myth of equality. In the 1960s (the high water mark of American optimism) Western societies were transformed into laboratories for affirming the value of universal equality. These experiments have been in effect for 50 years; they have run their course, and a verdict has been rendered regarding the equality hypothesis.

    The optimistic hopes were shown to be wrong, (however worthwhile it may have been to hold them and run the societal experiments). This realization is the great impasse of our day, which is dividing Western societies into those who accept the verdict, and those who have no choice but to embrace their faith in the myth with greater fervor. For the latter, the rational explosion of the myth is driving some mad, driving some to violence and apocalypticism, creating an umbrella of denial over public policy. We as a society cannot stand having the question answered—even being reminded that we were dealing with questions, not assertions/truths, to begin with.

    Interestingly, Galton wrote in 1873:

    “The opinion of the public on the real worth of the Negro race has halted between the extreme views which have been long and loudly proclaimed. It refuses to follow those of the early abolitionists, that all the barbarities in Africa are to be traced to the effects of a foreign slave trade, because travelers continually speak of similar barbarities existing in regions to which the slave trade has not penetrated. Captain Colomb has written a well-argued chapter on this matter, in his recent volume. On the other hand, the opinion of the present day repudiates the belief that the negro is an extremely inferior being, because there are notorious instances of negroes possessing high intelligence and culture, some of whom acquire large fortunes in commerce, and others become considerable men in other walks of life. The truth appears to be that individuals of the mental caliber I have just described are much more exceptional in the negro than in the Anglo-Saxon race, and that average negroes possess too little intellect, self-reliance, and self-control to make it possible for them to sustain the burden of any respectable form of civilization without a large measure of external guidance and support. “

    europeans will take ALL the guilt and punishment for pushing the locals out of the way, but random people directly from China and India and Nigeria are more than entitled to take over and occupy all the nice cities and towns the europeans created out of dangerous wilderness filled with hostile natives. none of the work, all of the benefits. don’t you understand that it’s suddenly not stolen land when random third worlders occupy the suburbs and malls and walmarts. third worlders aren’t here to take America away from europeans and give it back to the natives. they’re here to take America, for themselves. and won’t feel one second of guilt about it.

    no, they hate european men because they hate european men and want them gone. that’s it. it’s that simple. note that they have ALWAYS hated european men. what they’re saying today is how they have always felt. all the stuff they are writing on the internet and in newspapers and all the stuff they are saying on television is what they have ALWAYS thought.

    the only big difference now is that leftists have mostly displaced the core Americans in positions of authority and the US is under new management. new management that finds hating european men is strongly in line with THEIR values. and they’ve finally brainwashed enough europeans into hating themselves, their culture, and their history such that they’re now openly attacking themselves.

    In Detroit in the 80s and 90s I saw all this sad iconography from the 70s testifying about how, in the future, blacks will not only do better but will pretty much be the ruling caste. Hispanics have already passed them in numbers (and they did it by mostly “acting white”) and now you have two groups of nonwhites who are unlikely to fall for Jesse Jackson’s reverend shtick, highly wealthy Indians and highly competant East Asians. The blacks must be aware of this and are predisposed by their character to not talk frankly about it, so there will be little evidence, but this explosive panic speaks volumes.

    1. It’s not just a segment of the black population supporting anti-white hate. While it’s true that many blacks aren’t especially politically active, it’s concerning that this ideology of resentfulness seems to be near-universal among successful blacks in America now (not just politicians and academics but also entertainers, athletes, executives).

    2. The current anti-white campaign started in America, where the perennial disparities between the races are most visible and striking. However, I’ve noticed from my time in college that the children of rich African immigrants tend to assimilate into African American culture and take up black identity politics as their own, often leading the charge (think Obama). My prediction is that people in Africa (as it becomes even more clear that their countries won’t catch up through “anti-colonialism”) will increasingly imitate black Americans (just as European Goodwhites follow American Goodwhites) and we’ll see a globalization of American-style race politics. Even though the black population in America isn’t increasingly that fast at the moment, the population explosion in Africa and the falling birthrates almost everywhere else means this probably won’t turn out well, as Steve pointed out.

    3. There definitely is a civil war between whites, but I don’t think the whites encouraging anti-white hate are just using blacks as a “pawn” but rather sincerely view addressing blacks’ inferiority complex as the greatest moral imperative of our day (even if how they actually live their lives is inconsistent with this view).

    At Yale School of Medicine, for example, one main building’s hallways feature 55 portraits: three women and 52 men. They’re all white.

    “I don’t necessarily always have a reaction. But then there are times when you’re having a really bad day — someone says something racist to you, or you’re struggling with feeling like you belong in the space —and then you see all those photos and it kind of reinforces whatever you might have been feeling at the time,” says Max Jor dan Nguemeni Tiako, a medical student at Yale.

    He grew up reading Harry Potter books, and in that fictional world, portraits can talk to the characters. “If this was Harry Potter,” he muses, “if they could speak, what would they even say to me? Everywhere you study, there’s a big portrait somewhere of someone kind of staring you down.”

Then, there are, I am certain, different types of intelligence; also, almost super-human intellectual genius can create something big, but far less than, what I would call, small genius (I took that term from Hans Eysenck). British polymath Thomas Young is doubtless stellar genius in comparison with Darwin or James Watson. Yet- they are immensely more important than Young if we take into account their legacy in sciences. And- they’re dumbos in comparison with Young.

    3. Jewish prominence in many “visible” fields is certainly a combination of giftedness, nepotism, dominant cultural climate & hard work. In fields like journalism, literature, most money making, media, soft sciences, arts, politics, ordinary academic positions, popular culture …. it is not high IQ that would matter much. It is not simply ethnic nepotism, but some combination of ethic, education, IQ, motivation, hard work, focus, luck, … So, I would not say that Slim, Zuckerberg, Charles Murray, Steven Pinker, … are fascinating examples of impressive IQ. They may be important in their respective fields, but geniuses (whatever that means)- they are not.

    4. that leaves us with purer & more common sense “high intelligence” areas of exact sciences, engineering & a few other fields. It is evident that Jewish contribution in these fields is over-represented; has virtually nothing to do with ethnic nepotism & is higher than Jewish presence in urban areas where such things flourish. My opinion is that it was Jewish historical luck that their creative period coincided with growth in most important areas in the wealthiest & most scientifically progressive countries in the world in past 7 decades (Anglosphere). Now, this is all is falling down. Jews had exhausted themselves significantly- which is natural. For instance, Germany had dominated mathematics from, say, 1770 to 1930 (Gentile German-speaking individuals), with France close second and England distant third. Now, German mathematics is 3rd rate. How so? Exhaustion of creativity.

    Now, in the US, the best young science achievers, as far as I can see, are ethnic Asians, mostly Chinese and Indians. Whites, including Jews, are present, but visibly lag behind.

    The creative period in that area has mostly passed, and this has not much to do with tail ends of IQ.

    “It’s Western exploration, science, and conquest that have revealed the world to itself.”. There’s Hegel’s philosophy of history right there. Sobran got it right. The rest of the quote as well, is what Hegel meant by Master/Slave.

    From my vantage point in the Pac. NW, you are correct: this is an internal white issue. Black rage here would be trivial even if it existed, as there are so few blacks in these parts. Likewise, there are hardly any Jews. Orientals and Mexicans are not at all interested, however there are a few Hindu and Muslim troublemakers involved with the riots.

    My parents live in a multiracial neighborhood in Seattle. I am visiting them as I type this. Every BLM sign is on a white person’s house. The black navy vet who lives next door is flying the stars and stripes. The other blacks in the neighborhood are going about life as usual.

    I drove through the area formerly known as CHAZ yesterday out of curiosity. Lots of white weirdos, lots of garbage, not many blacks, tons of political graffiti.

    These riots are carried out by misfits from all over the NW, who concentrate themselves in a few parts of Portland and Seattle and have seized political power as a result of this urban concentration. Just read Andy Ngo’ s feed and you’ll see exactly who they are.

    The rural/exurban population is squarely opposed to the urban rioters, but a lot of them will vote Democrat anyway because of unions or state jobs.

    The blacks are really just mascots. Some white anarchists emptied mags into a couple unarmed black kids in a stolen jeep and then dragged out and beat the one who was still alive.

    BLM is just an excuse. As you say, this is more like the Cultural Revolution. Or the Paris Commune, Spanish Civil War, etc.

    This is white people behaving very badly, which means we’d better take it a lot more seriously than a garden variety black riot.

    Buzz, the next level of …”You didn’t build this” culture. When I visited the pyramids in Egypt I was impressed by the width and height, but with a back ground in heavy rigging, not confused to how they built them. The average block is 3’x3′. Years ago, during winter, I build a playhouse for my daughters (age 4 and 6) in our garage. Finished, with the floor and roof in place, it weighed at least 800 pounds. In the Spring, using only pipe rollers, plank weighs, 2x4s for cribbing and levers I helped them move it from the garage, across the lawn and up onto a prebuilt deck. My neighbor, the owner of a union general contracting company came over, sat in a lawn chair, martini in one hand, cigar in the other and laughed and enjoyed the effort. Machu Picu, is basically rough cut stones piled wide and high with bas relief carvings. While it was being built by “aliens” there were cathedrals in Europe with 140′ naves, lead roofs, gutters,buttresses, flying buttresses and stain glass windows. And we know who built those…can’t say it though.

    “Arts and Entertainment” is only a name. Lots of TV channels have strayed from their original mission, especially in the age of “reality” TV. Reality TV is cheaper than scripted TV (not that it isn’t scripted also) and is a proven winner with the public.

    Apparently, A&E started out with good middle-brow intentions, with some cultural offerings and BBC dramas, but found that their target demo didn’t spend enough. The History Channel is obviously another channel that strayed from their original format. A lot of their documentaries were pretty crappy anyway (although a few of their offerings weren’t bad), but they gave up any pretense years ago. And, yes, “Reality TV” is well-known to be a misnomer, as it is as scripted as anything else.

    The unforgivable fact of 2020 is that white men have done most of the great things of the last 600 years. This deeply angers many nonwhite people today that their ancestors didn’t accomplish much.

    Simply don’t buy this line of argument. After all, why is so much hatred coming from Jews, a people with a long illustrious history of their own? Meanwhile, the brown folks of Latin America have been pretty much passive before white power. They are not going around smashing colleges and churches. And neither are American Indians. It’s not the American Indians who are knocking down Columbus statues. In fact, many of the worst vandals are whites.

    Also, Chinese destroyed their own culture during the Cultural Revolution. But why?
    It was because of the reductive mindset of radicalism. History is rich, complex, and contradictory. Much good is mixed with the bad. The Great Wall is a proud monument but cost tremendous lives. Same with Angkor Wat. People with appreciative mindsets and genuine historical and cultural consciousness understand this and value the history/culture of other cultures as well as their own.

    But the reductionist radical mindset cannot accept such complexities. For them, it’s a Manichean struggle between the pure light and forces of darkness. It’s Jedis vs the Siths. And this is why the Red Guards lay waste to so much of their own culture. Maoism taught them there is bad old feudal oppressive China and good new communist revolutionary China. So, old China was all bad, all backward, all oppressive, all evil, and all worthless while the Revolution was all good and god Mao was all-knowing. Such a mindset cannot process complexity, which is denounced as ‘bourgeois’, ‘weak’, ‘fuzzy’, or ‘uncommitted’. And so the reductionist-radical lunatics went on the rampage. For them, Old Culture was simply bad backward stupid culture that had to be smashed.

    What has happened in Western Education since the 2oth century? The rise of Critical Theory and other radical views that had a reductionist impact on culture. To be sure, the original Critical Theorists were rather sophisticated and had an appreciation of arts/culture, but the vulgarized form of their theories, in conjunction with radicalization of Nietzschean-Foucaultian power-obsession and Heideggerian emphasis on ‘authenticity’, led to a new mindset of seeing everything in terms of good power vs bad power and taking action or praxis to feel alive.

    So, appreciation of art was secondary to understanding arts/culture as tools of power. Now, not everyone who played this game was blind to artistic merit. Edward Said was, at once, highly critical of Western Artists as purveyors of imperialist mindset and highly appreciative of their insights and expressions. But with the fading of bourgeois respectability(something that defined the generations of Critical Theorists all the way to up to Said) and rise of Pop Culture as main culture, the new sensibility became even more vulgar and simple-minded, shamelessly so. It also led to the conceit that those-in-the-know scoff at such outdated notions of ‘art’ and ‘aesthetics’. It’s all about Power. Art and culture are essentially tools of power and even though some are better than others, the MAIN focus should be on whether it’s on the side of the good or on the side of evil. Because power is more crucial than anything else, even shallow propaganda that pushes the good should be favored over great art that is stained with badness. Nazis weren’t much different in their approach. They pushed junky kitsch as German Art while banning true art by people like Mahler.

    To appreciate arts/culture and science, one needs a historical sense and a broader sense of humanity. But the reductionist mindset works against that. Such mindset can be found among any race, any culture, any religious group. The destruction of so much pagan temples and statues by Christians can be attributed to such mindset. “It’s pagan and unholy and an affront to God, and so they must be destroyed.” It’s like the mindset of the Taliban who blew up Buddha statues. But then, are white Americans really much better? They are so into ‘muh democracy’, ‘support the troops’, and ‘Israel is our greatest ally’ that they harbor a reductionist view of US policy in the Middle East. If it’s a ‘war on terror’ and good for Israel, it must be good… even if it’s actually war for terror. US and Israel and allies armed and funded radical terrorists in Syria and Iraq who destroyed so much ancient art, but where is the outrage? And the value of these millennia-old artifacts is infinitely greater than monuments in America that are mostly decades or century old. But the only narrative that mattered was ‘Assad is evil’ and so anything is good if it weakens his grip on power EVEN IF it leads to wholesale destruction of that country and its ancient legacy.
    And ultimately, Said’s theory of Orientalism wasn’t as harmful as Jewish theory of Antisemitism that degenerated in the insane reductionist view that anyone who doesn’t agree with Jews on just everything and dares to notice Jewish Power is a dirty ‘anti-Semite’ who must be crushed and blacklisted. Talk about pure evil. With criticism of Jewish Power out of the question, the Neocons and others embarked on Wars for Israel that laid waste to entire nations.

    Reductionist views can be based on racial supremacy. Hitler planned to raze Moscow to the ground. It was Slavic and therefore worthless. It had to make way for Greater Germania. Jews see the world in terms of Our Power uber alles. They see Confederate monument as the last symbols of white defiance, so they must go. Even the once much venerated Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson must be removed. But where are the whites? If Jews and non-whites are animated by hostility, why aren’t whites fired up with pride and glory?
    Of course, another reason why Jews want Confederate monuments removed is because it’s more difficult for them to use the GOP if it’s seen as a Neo-Confederate Party. Ironically, if Jews are to carry on with apartheid and discriminatory policies in Israel and West Bank, they must not be associated with ‘racism’ in the US. Morally condemn the Confederacy in the US to give cover to racial oppression in Israel and West Bank. So, this is history in reductionist Jewish eyes that boils the world down to Jewish power and Goyim whose only purpose is to serve Jewish power.

    Anyway, it’s not like non-whites woke up one morning and resented the Western World and went on a rampage. Japanese are non-white and greatly appreciate Western Classical Music and want to preserve it.

    The current reductionist rages are the product of development of Western Radicalism that came to regard POWER as the key issue in everything. Does such-and-such serve the Good Force or the Dark Side of the Force? Consider how so many film critics lauded the New STAR WARS fully knowing they’re worthless artistically. Why? Because it sent the right message about ‘Diversity’. Or the mindless adulation of BLACK PANTHER. Maybe it’s a half-decent action movie but 100% approval? It reflects the sea change in cultural consciousness among younger critics who came under the influence of PC and the new idolatry. Art and aesthetics are secondary to the Message.

    So, it’s not so much that non-whites are resentful of the past. After all, many of the Antifa and BLM lunatics are whitity-white. And would Hindus, blacks and other in UK and Canada have such vocal presence if they weren’t enabled and emboldened by white radicals who are even bolder and crazier? The problem is that all of them have no appreciation of Western History. It’s less about resentment and envy than ignorance and purity spirals. Brainwashed as they were by PC and braindead as they are from growing up with video games, porn, music videos, and instagram nonsense, they couldn’t appreciate art and culture if it was put in front of them.
    Read them some lines of Shakespeare, and it’s ‘misogynist’. Turn on some classical music, and it’s ‘boring and white’. Show them some classic movie and it’s ‘racist’ or ‘homophobic’. Now, works from the past may indeed be problematic to us in the present(even to conservatives), but those who can appreciate art and aesthetics can still see value in genius and originality. But these morons can’t. They see great works of Christian Art and just see, “Sheeeeeeiiiit, Jesus be white, and dat’s racist.” And for feminists, ‘this is sexist’, ‘that is misogynist’. It’s like what Camille Paglia said about the Rolling Stones and radical feminists. Yes, they did sing racy and insulting songs about women, but they were great rockers. So, even if one is put off by the message, one can still appreciate them as artists. But for the reductionists, such mental process is simply too much.

    Over the years, Western Education became more reductionist about history and culture, boiling it all down to Empowerment. The Marxist Left used to focus on class-economic dynamics, but that became secondary to just plain power. Power is what counts. But who should have the power? The New Thought said some groups are holier than others. Jews, blacks, and homos especially. So, more power to Jews, blacks, and homos is good. But if there are the good guys, there must be the bad guy. And who would that be? Well, Jews controlled the megaphone and made it out to be Evil Whitey. And so, young ones of all races, not least among whites, are being raised with the Manichean notion of the great battle between Evil Whitey and Great Diversity(but led by Jews, blacks, and homos of course). And so, the great achievements of white men are secondary to the fact that they might have done or said something that was so characteristic of Evil Whitey. (When Rich Lowry denounces Robert E. Lee in National Review while crooning about Harriet Tubman as a defender of Second Amendment, the rot is deep. The problem is not the admiration for Tubman but reduction of Lee and the American South as being about nothing but ‘slavery’, which would be as stupid to seeing all of Old Russia as being about ‘serfdom’ and all of Hindu culture as nothing but ‘caste oppression’.) It’s like Nazi scientists and other figures, no matter how talented they were, are suspect because of their association. Under Jewish Power, whiteness itself has become near-synonymous with nazism. Whiteness itself is problematic. But the new mentality targets and destroys ANY WHITE. In Wisconsin, they even did the dastardly thing of removing a memorial to the unknown Confederate dead. It was about young men who died miserably long ago, but it had to go. You can be a low-IQ white guy working at Walmart, but you will be fired if you said “It’s Okay to be White”. Once whiteness itself is seen as akin to ‘nazism’, it doesn’t matter if a white man was a great scientist or doctor or whatever.

    In the US, Jews played a key role in creating this climate. In the 80s and 90s, I came across so many articles in prestigious press about how evil T.S. Eliot and Herbert von Karajan were. It was relentless, one after another after another. I’ve no problem with pointing out that Eliot might have written offensive things or that Karajan was an opportunist who once served the Nazis. But all these attacks were intended to make us overlook their talents as artists and just dismiss and denounce them as ‘anti-semites’. Indeed, how many reputations have been destroyed by Jews because such and such was or may be have been an ‘anti-semite’? Now, pound for pound, Jews are more accomplished than whites in many fields, and have no reason for envy and resentment. But they’ve led the way in canceling the West. And others are mostly following their lead.

    To be honest I don’t think Jack D is even serving his tribe, in that the white genocide project as pushed by the likes of BLS and Potok is not productive for the Jewish people. Yes, his tribe has power now but it is tenuous and being squandered. Both among their host, white people, but also geopolitically.

    For some reason the Jews in power and their lower-level Jewish supporters have declared non-Jewish white people as a kind of Amalek to be obliterated from the earth. This is odd, because from the perspective of non-whites, Jews are just a kind of pernicious white people. My guess is that when this plan was hatched and gained currency, it was from Jews living in a whitopia (Europe, white parts of the US) where the key problem was that the goyim weren’t kneeling and washing Jewish feet as they walked by, and the problems that would come from weakened white civilization and non-white influx weren’t manifest.

    Now they have come this far, the anti-white ideas have become quite entrenched as the propaganda they generated became a brainwashing of their own people too. Much like young Jews of the early twentieth century saw Jewishness and socialism/Communism as synonymous (though it is much less that way now).

    The unfortunate reality of such a plan is that a dumbed down country becomes less competent as a country, and less powerful (not to mention less enjoyable to live in). The intelligent non-whites who are encouraged to invade just see the white majority country as something to exploit and bleed for their own gain (and less intelligent relatives).

    The double-edged sword of chutzpah is that yes, it allows trying things that have not been tried before and some of them work. However, when typical engineering-type questions aren’t asked, e.g. “What is the optimum? What is our objective, what are we really trying to accomplish here? Has it worked in microcosm in any real world examples, and lets look at all of those and not just the cherry-picked examples we can find. And if we achieve it, are there any downsides of that situation? How bad are those downsides? Is this new situation any better than the old situation?” there is a seed of its own destruction baked into the cake.

    I am not sure exactly what Ron’s motivations are but even I can see that Jewish power is currently used for not only a wanton, evil purpose but also all it will achieve is the powerful feeling of a boot stamping on a white face, for a time, and then less power and siginificant risk.

    Unfortunately IRL one can’t even have a conversation with most (any?) Jews about Jewish power and its aims and objectives. They don’t permit discussion let alone critique in my experience, so it’s hard to influence. They would rather not realize what you actually know and engage in discussion, instead preferring to think that the party line about there being no Jewish power, these are bad thoughts, where did you get that incorrect information from, will make any difference to your conclusions. (It’s not just Jews though in life, who get on a self-destructive path and won’t listen to reason. It’s more the rule than the exception.)

    It’s kind of odd, because although their people seem to have mostly a religious/legal way of operating, they have a number of top flight scientists among them (see the Manhattan project). But probably most of them are not very observant religiously, i.e. they are more atheistic, like Feynman (to my memory). These scientists and engineers don’t appear to have had a lot of influence in the rest of the policy-making.

    Maybe part of the problem is that the direction of the propaganda is within the propaganda organs themselves, where asking the question I’ve posed are less important. e.g. if you can make people believe something, if you can fool a lot of people, you have succeeded. So then you don’t ask such engineering question because they are irrelevant to say, creating a movie that sells.

    Though if you watch Cosmos by Sagan, you will notice that here and there he injects aspects of (1980 era) anti-white orthodoxy into it. So here you have an example of a Jew who is very familiar with science pushing a similar line. To be fair though, he gives respect where it is due, and in exalting the heroes of science, probably did not foresee the days when those scientists would be toppled from their pedestals.

    It is not new however, and it hasn’t just been statues. For example, Lavoisier’s beheading in the French Revolution. What a reprehensible thing to do to the literal father of chemistry, the creator of the periodic table. On the subject of the French Revolution, I find this interesting:

    My take on the current ructions is that it’s some kind of result of the breakdown of a cherished myth that supported American democracy, especially during the Cold War. That’s the myth of equality. In the 1960s (the high water mark of American optimism) Western societies were transformed into laboratories for affirming the value of universal equality. These experiments have been in effect for 50 years; they have run their course, and a verdict has been rendered regarding the equality hypothesis.

    The myth of human equality became a sort of religion for a lot of educated Americans who’d drifted away from real religion, I think. Paradise was supposed to arrive on Earth when all those societal barriers to full participation by minorities and women came down. But the barriers tumbled, and a Paradise never arrived. Confronted with evidence of the death of their god, they’ve doubled down on belief-hence ‘systemic racism.’ It’s like a millenarian cult: doomsday didn’t arrive on schedule?

    Imagine being a Black man surrounded by this:

    First of all, most blacks are unaware and don’t care about past white achievements. They aren’t intimidated by such. They just find it boring. Black attach value to stuff that makes them wanna use their fists or shake their booties. So, when blacks see Western painting or hear Western music, they just think, “dat fat ho be nekkid” or “this white ass music be lame”. It just doesn’t show up on their radar. As for buildings and stuff, they don’t think about WHO built them. Blacks just think that everything, regardless who built them, belongs to blacks. “Gots to have me dat.” Besides, they can always, ‘slaves done build america’.

    And most whites aren’t all that different. Many more whites listen to rap than classical. And most whites find classical music as boring as blacks do. As for statues and memorials, they are from a bygone age when objects still mattered. Now, the culture is more about memes than memorials. There was a time when people actually traveled to a place to look at monuments and things. But with TV and gadgets, you can just see the images anywhere. Better yet, people prefer artificial animated moving images than static ones. I’ll bet most people didn’t know of all those statues before the news of them being attacked or removed. In a sick way, the vandalism made people aware of all the history and culture they’d been oblivious to. How many people have noticed statues of Shakespeare, Goethe, Lincoln, or some such figure? Their minds are on superhero movies, video games, and memes. Usually when people pass by parks, they have no idea what the memorial or statue is about and don’t care. And it’s the same in every nation.

    Your average black and average white is a cultural zero.

    Now, the more educated blacks tend to be more touchy on arts and culture because they have pretensions of sophistication. But the main source of their tension is not mere inferiority but inferiority alongside superiority. Blacks take great pride in their sports domination, musical contributions, and oratory. They feel soulful and stronger of body. And they notice how white folks are crazy about black music and black sports and black funkiness. They feel like the natural master race towering over cucky wuck whites.
    But, blacks are good at certain things, not so good at other things. But because blacks receive so much adulation as athletes and entertainers, they have this diva-like notion that they should be the center of everything. And many whites feel that way. So many whites are so awed by the black spectacle in music and sports that they feel it’s unjust that blacks are not kangz at everything.
    So, it’s like the whole Western Project is now making sure super-duper noble wonderful awesome blacks rightfully dominate everything. So, if blacks aren’t dominating chemistry or physics, it must be ‘racism’, and whites must make sure blacks rise to the top in such fields. Or, at the very least, exaggerate some second-rate black scientist as one of the best ever.

    Cause Celebre in US media is always ‘The first black to…’
    It’s as if the failure of blacks to dominate everything is a racial injustice that must be fixed. Just consider all those whites who wept and wet their pants over ‘first black president’, as if that’s really gonna bring a new chapter to humanity. Apparently, this bug has spread to other nations. Some yrs back, Japan chose a mulatto as Miss Japan. ‘The First Black…’ will keep the West busy for a long long time.

    Christianity was not founded by white men. There is no concept of race in Christianity. Paul writes we were created from one blood, every nation, and the gospel was preached to every nation. It was Darwin who brought that wicked idea, though there was plenty of xenophobia and prejudice before that. Moses was married to a black woman and Aaron and his sister learned a hard lesson when they criticized him for it. There is zero room for racism in Christ’s kingdom.

    That of course does not excuse the Orwelian revisionism either. Everyone is given the opportunity to have the slate wiped clean but it does require repentance

    Blacks are not “in the ascendancy” in the U.S. The economic and academic gaps between blacks and whites/Asians continue to persist (and in some cases widen) and, as the Hispanic/Asian population fractions increase, black demographic heft is decreasing relatively in the U.S.

    Blacks as a whole population is not in the ascendancy, but blacks as symbols and trophies have the most value. Blackness is a hot commodity, even in European and Asian nations as objects of both sympathy and fascination. So, even if most blacks don’t do well, blacks are the poster-boys-and-girls of New America. Corporations scour and trade for black talent like kids trade baseball cards for the biggest players.

    Also, you only need to be moderately bright as a black student to be showered with accolades and be given lots of prizes. Tahenisi Coates and Michelle Obama.

    Browns have outnumbered blacks for some time, but even though browns generally do better than blacks, Americans have no interest in browns as symbols or idols. And it’s not just about numbers. Jews are 2% of America but totally dominant.

    Also, your bunching of whites and asians as natural allies or neighbors is problematic.

    Most likely, White animus will grow against Asians and China in particular. Given that whites and Asians are most alike in terms of education and earning, you would think the two groups would see eye to eye. But no. Whites used to look down on blacks, but once blacks showed their mastery over music and sports, whites began to acknowledge blacks as a cool race. So, whites rather welcome black ascendancy. But because whites see Asians as dorks and geeks, they don’t like the idea of such nerds gaining more wealth and power in the US. So, whites find black ascendancy to be righteous but see any sign of Asian ascendancy as unpleasant.

    But the bigger reason is due to white cowardice. Whites are now too cowardly to push back against blacks, Jews, and homos, three groups that do most harm to the US. So, whites are frustrated but must repress their emotions lest they be accused of ‘racism’, ‘antisemitism’, and ‘homophobia’. ‘This means they need a safe outlet for their fury, and that means Asians and China, as those are fair game according to Media Narrative. Mike Pence, so weak before Jews who pushed globo-homo on Indiana and blacks who insulted him at the performance of HAMILTON, acted oh-so-tough with North Koreaans. Trump and all those white cons grovel before Jews, blacks, & homos and look so weak and then try to regain the aura of toughness by talking tough about China. Alex Jones isn’t much different. Whites are craven and dare not bark at their masters. So, they turn their rage at Asians and China as permitted targets of white tough guy ire.

    This would be a replay of white hatred toward Muslims. As white criticism of Jews, blacks, and even homos became taboo, craven whites sought release through Muslim-bashing, especially as Muslim-as-terrorist meme was all over Hollywood movies and Neocon magazines.

    So, Twinkie’s white-asian partnernship is a pipe dream. White cucks will need an outlet for their mounting rage about problems in America, much of it due to Jews, blacks, and homos. But whites are cowards before them. So, the only way whites could puff up their chest again and look tough will be by hating on China and Asians as safe outlet. Never seek alliance with craven cucks.

    This is surely true, Charlotte. I too have been thinking about the millenarian cult analogy. That was a convenient name in the context of a Christian culture, but I see the approach you describe—the god didn’t answer as expected, something must be blamed, and we need to try harder—is a dysfunction native to religion per se. Robert Graves refers to it in the pagan context, and I believe Jesus warned his disciples against this approach when they asked him how to pray. The root error in all cases may be that the believer can *control* the divine through certain incantations or behaviors, instead of trust in a free and therefore inscrutable god.

    It does not surprise me that people who have “outgrown” traditional religion should embrace, consciously or not, an ersatz (and stupid) one. I’m interested in why those who ostensibly represent institutional Christianity have fallen so hard for it. The equality myth and the social prescriptions attendant on it are the basic faith of the Protestant denominations, the ecumenical movement, Catholicism going forward, and is infiltrating the Orthodox diaspora in the West (which is not much remarked upon but is happening). Most of the people in leadership roles in these institutions would be embarrassed and offended by a sincere assertion the “Jesus is coming to establish his kingdom.” But they’ve completely signed on to the myth that that kingdom of equality will arrive if we police language and turn a blind eye to objective reality.

    I’ve followed your comments here, Charlotte, and appreciate them very much. Thanks.

    The average life expectancy for black males in the US is 75 years so Till would already have been past his cell by date (oops, Freudian slip – I mean sell by, not that blacks are for sale nowadays).

    For someone with very high impulsivity and sex drive like Till, I think the odds would have been even worse. He would have hit on some other colored fellow’s woman and gotten himself shot/stabbed in a bar fight or something like that. And if that had happened, it would have been a 3 line item in the police blotter on p.22 of the Chicago paper and that (aside from his criminal record) would have been the sum total of Emmett Till’s impact on history.

    He was 5’8, 150 pounds and tried to rape a 5’2 105 pound woman. He lay in wait in the parking lot till the store was closed and then attacked her with the intent to rape her. She managed to get her gun out of the car and he backed off

    That’s according to Till’s cousin who witnessed the whole thing. Cousin was there because Till insisted he be there to witness Till rape her.

    Boys that age talk about sex. Till spent the summer bragging to his cousins and other boys about his active sex life in his home town, Chicago. Some of the boys believed and admired him for his alleged sex life in Chicago.

    Other boys reasonably accused him of bragging about his sex life and other things in Chicago. Till decided he’d show those boys what a stud he was with the owner of the store.

    He picked Mrs Bryant because the parking lot of the store was a hangout for the kids especially on hot summer nights. He wanted a witness. The cousin stayed. The rest of the kids didn’t want to be involved and left for home.

    The accounts vary as to what he said and did, but the store clerk (a white woman alone in a mostly black community) was alarmed enough that she went to her car and got her gun – all accounts agree on that. So it must have been somewhat alarming and probably beyond just a whistle.

    The woman, Carolyn Bryant testified under oath at the time that Till grabbed her hand and said, “How about a date, baby?” She said that after she freed herself from his grasp, Till followed her to the cash register, grabbed her waist and said, “What’s the matter baby, can’t you take it?”. Bryant said she freed herself, and Till said, “You needn’t be afraid of me, baby,”used “one ‘unprintable’ word” and said “I’ve been with white women before.

    Over 50 years later, a white liberal historian interviewed an elderly Bryant (now Donham) and he (and only he – there was no one else present and no recording) says that she recanted her original testimony. Based on this one dubious source, the MSM now 100% agrees that Till dindu nuffin and that Bryant completely invented her testimony. Me thinks that they (and you) are inclined to believe what they want to believe (that which portrays Till as an innocent)and are not really that concerned with the truth. Donham’s family denies that she ever recanted.

    The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Till’s daddy was a rapist and a murderer .

That the Army, Navy, Marines pro-actively banned the use of Confederate symbols after the anti-racism movement took off; and the Pentagon’s decision, defying Trump, to change the names of all military bases named after Confederate Generals, tells us who they think is the biggest internal threat in the United States.

    Not true. Some radical liberals were racial egalitarians as far back as the late 1700’s. In America, racial egalitarian sentiment exploded in the 1820’s, with the Second Great Awakening and the rise of radical abolitionism. Abolitionist leader William Lloyd Garrison advocated the idea that all of the problems of blacks were caused by whites and there was no difference at all between races. He was tremendously popular and influential. There was a racialist backlash, triggered by Darwin’s theories and black migration north in the late 1800’s. Many people don’t realize that before that, racial egalitarianism was widely supported by middle class Northern WASP Americans. We are fighting a longer, more dynamic war than many realize.

    I encourage people to study the history of the abolitionist movement, New England intellectuals and the Puritan culture going back to 1400’s England. You will learn a lot about where the Great Derangement comes form.
