From Lancet, the famous British medical journal, a book review:

Despair doesn’t kill, defending whiteness does
Rhea W Boyd
Published: January 11, 2020 DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/S0140-6736(19)33147-2

On the morning of Sept 15, 1963, a Sunday, Addie Mae Collins, Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson, and Carol Denise McNair were killed by whiteness. …

For some reason, this lengthy book review fails to mention Emmett Till was also killed by whiteness.

Comprehending the deaths of these Black children—killed by white men and boys in the American South in 1963—requires confronting the white racial terror that threatened Black communities and unearthing the legacy of death that courses alongside even the youngest Black lives.

Capitalizing “Black” but not capitalizing “white” is a dead giveaway of racist animus in a writer. It’s like the OK sign is in the minds of ADL Hate Trackers, except it is 99% accurate.

Yet, as the present historical moment observes a rise in white deaths, the connections between white racial terror and premature death appear lost in public and academic discourse.

In Dying of Whiteness, Jonathan Metzl attempts to trace these connections by probing how the armed defence of whiteness harms and sometimes kills white people too. Situating his analysis within the political landscapes of Missouri, Tennessee, and Kansas, Metzl explores how white Americans arm themselves with guns or votes, and attempt to individually secure the benefits of whiteness, shaping in the process the population health outcomes of everyone living in the wake of their political decisions—including other white people. From expansive gun legislation to broad divestment in government programmes, Metzl characterises white liberties that endanger white lives or imperil white futures as “dying of whiteness”.

… Framed against the backdrop of the 2016 US election, Metzl tries to fill this void by naming a common aetiology threatening the health of white Americans. Something he calls, “racial resentment”. As he argues, “resentment against changing demographics” and groups like “immigrants or minorities”, “shapes [white] attitudes towards various acts of legislation”, particularly during times of economic insecurity. In other words, to “maintain an imagined place atop a racial hierarchy”, white Americans who harbour “racial resentment” adopt political orientations and voting patterns largely based on if, and how, those choices seem to limit the freedoms or resources available to non-white and/or Black people. Yet they also do so, even when those decisions threaten their own wellbeing or that of other white people. This, in Metzl’s estimation, is how whiteness harms population health.

But Metzl just doesn’t hate white people enough for Dr. Boyd’s taste:

But foregrounding “resentment” as the source of self-destructive white political behaviours has consequences. First, it erases white agency through emotional euphemism. Second, it minimises how white racism, especially when enacted through political choices, can simultaneously be self-interested and self-destructive. At times, Metzl artfully articulates and historicises the racist origins of white interest in firearm fanaticism and “small government” politics. At others, he turns to “racial anxieties”, racially charged “fears”, or “racial resentment” to describe white people’s political investment in white racial dominance. The effect is white choices to advance structural racism, and the violence those choices engender at a population level, get misinterpreted as primarily emotionally driven or disconnected from material reward.

This tendency, to mis-attribute white self-destruction and violence to psychological states or to obscure the impacts of defending whiteness through emotional euphemisms, is a common practice. For example, the disaggregated drivers of all-cause white mortality (conditions such as suicide, chronic liver disease, and drug and alcohol poisoning) have been described as “diseases of despair” rather than diseases of disproportionate opportunity (to wield firearms) and access (to prescription opiates). Media responses to white perpetrators of mass shootings have cited abstract “mental illness”, labelled shooters as “lone wolves”, and treated their violence as idiosyncratic rather than the deadly confluence of white racial terrorism, patriarchy, and liberalised access to guns. Even research examining the relation between whiteness and health suggests psychological “distress” contributes to how whiteness impairs health. And increasingly, intellectuals rapt with the concept of “white fragility” focus on the emotional discomfort white people experience when confronted with their racism, rather than the legacy of death in whiteness’s wake. To assert that resentment, despair, or any emotion that arises from being “left behind” accounts for white Americans’ self-destructive actions, violent politics, or declining population health misses two counterpoints.

First, if any population has been left behind in America’s colonial-turned-industrial-turned-technocratic political economy, it is Black (and Indigenous) people.

Academic Whiteness Studies is extremely intellectual, so unless you are as highbrow as Rhea Boyd MD, you probably won’t understand her complex worldview, which is:

Blackness is Goodness.

Whiteness is Badness.

Excuse me, my apologies, what I meant to say is:

Blackness is Goodness, but whiteness is badness.

As all of us Woke Folk now know, Blacks deserve capitalization but whites do not.

Yet scholars, the media, and the public seem intent on viewing white voter patterns post-2016 and rising white deaths post-2010 as born of recessions, resentment, and racial divides. This myopathy overlooks the evolving ways white Americans continue to mobilise to maintain or extend the exclusive advantages whiteness offers those who can become white, even as those advantages place them in increasing proximity to death.

When confronted with self-inflicted or white on white violence, scholars, the media, and the public are evading the logical conclusion—one Metzl both illuminates and eschews—despair isn’t killing white America, the armed defence of whiteness is.

To be clear, it is not that amid the armed defence of whiteness some people have inadvertently or indirectly died. Rather, death is the inevitable consequence of the full realisation of structural racism and the exclusive rights and resources it offers those who can become white. This type of death is perhaps more easily recognised when it is sudden and violent—like the deaths of Addie Mae, Cynthia, Carole, Carol Denise, Johnny, and Virgil. But it can also be “slow and [nearly] invisible”, as it is among white Americans who will deteriorate from chronic liver disease or substance use.

Ultimately, white racial terror can strike by blunt force or decaying infrastructure, through frank abuse or frank neglect. It can kill babies or mothers, immigrants or Indigenous peoples. But within a white racial ordering of humans, rights and resources, non-white and/or Black deaths become naturalised and expected. And white deaths appear to be the aberration. But they evidence the rule, not the exception.

For humans to use whiteness to manufacture access and privilege, they must engineer scarcity and loss.

Scarcity is a social construct. Without People of Whiteness engineering scarcity, there’s be plenty of cargo for everybody.

This entanglement between access and scarcity, privilege and loss, means white people’s unearned advantages have always been tethered to a legacy of untold deaths. This is not the result of an emotional positioning, but a structural one. In Dying of Whiteness, Metzl intricately outlines this structural framework but too often anchors it to an emotional foundation his analysis both critiques and depends on. This is perhaps why his conclusion is to “Promote more healthy and self-reflective frameworks…of structural whiteness” when the only solution is to eliminate whiteness all together.

Because the consequences of structural whiteness are fatal and as new populations seek its exclusive advantages, the associated harms continue to unfold. For example, as some Asian American students challenge affirmative action, they not only risk eliminating opportunities for higher education they also risk decreasing life expectancy for affected non-white and/or Black students too. And as Hispanic Americans increasingly select white on the census, it reveals pressures to assimilate that may endanger their population health as well.

… The solution to defending whiteness is not self-reflection. It is not a difficult conversation. And it is not centring white emotions, however distressing they may be. The solution is those who can become white must summon the courage to unbecome white and then to eliminate whiteness, “the system, the way of life, the philosophy [producing] murderers”.

Similarly, I’m about to say something you might not be ready to hear.

But I’m going to say it anyways.

Starvation wasn’t killing kulak Ukrainians. The obstinate defense of structural kulakness was.

The solution?

Eliminate kulakness all together.

In summary, it’s time for more People of Whiteness to take seriously the acronymized message of Diversity Inclusion Equity before the Woke are forced to move on to the Inclusion Equity Diversity phase of the struggle.

  3. Well, points to her, though only stylistic — I seriously doubt much intelligence from her behind her description. I also doubt very much her skills as an MD — and not much room there: she’s either stupid and was given a degree, or is intelligent and earned it as a sociopath. But interesting to see we’ve moved on from ‘white privilege’ to ‘structural whiteness’. Structural is a much more ambiguous term: honestly, most people mentioning ‘white privilege’ are too damn stupid to adequately defend the concept. ‘Structural’ is much better because many opponents of identity politics will indeed think western society does have structural whiteness, because it does, for obvious reasons: it’s a creation of Europeans and descendants of Europeans elsewhere.

    Here is what I don’t understand. Whites are still the majority demographic. Even if you subject self-hating Whites from the total, the remaining Whites are still a plurality if not a slight majority. Additionally the remaining Whites are the most heavily armed population in the world, collectively have the most economic clout and have the highest percentage of former military service members.

    With all of that going for them, how do we arrive at a point where commenters are suggesting that there will be an attempt to exterminate Whites?

    If such an event were to happen, and you were a future historian, would you have any sympathy for a group who was exterminated given all the resources that group possessed and the explicit warnings that were directed against that group? I doubt it. There are too many other groups throughout history who were snuffed out because they lacked the numbers, armaments and financial resources to defend themselves. Who would lament the passing of a group that had so much at its disposal, yet failed to utilize it?

    Perhaps read up on Whiteness Studies. Even just googling the term may help you understand how whiteness and Blackness function very differently.

    She’s got the new capitalization rules down pat. Its nice to see. I hope she continues to advertise her racial self-interest.

    There’s hardly a shorter route to building invisible obstacles against oneself and one’s ultra minority demographic within a profession than to immediately adopt the illogical, idosyncratic Marxist lexicon and demonstrate that you lack the ability to think thoroughly, objectively, or morally (and especially when your field is hard science).

    Writing articles like this is ironically predictable from Black Doctors precisely because of the lower IQ whose stigma they wish to outrun as their foremost priority (if money and respect means anything to them).

    That’s in addition to the “flea biting the bear” mentality that Black people residing in the first world seem to not grasp when they attack the existence of Whites as a group. If the bear takes a bath as a result, they’re screwed.

    You go girl.

  32. This stuff is hard to read, not because it is intellectual, but because it is infuriating. Are we to argue against it, or turn our backs in disgust? How many people read Lancet, especially an article in it like this one?

    There is no end to what the Culture of Critique can construct with words. This is a particularly hateful example, wrapped up with a black ribbon. Oh, excuse me, a Black ribbon.

    How many Black or White people do pseudointellectuals like that really speak for? Most probably don’t hate that way. The danger is the trickle down via media to the public, and the hateful actions it inspires.

  33. @istevefan

    Several reasons.

    1. Whites have no collective unity. Whites are extremely individualistic and socially atomized. Each white pursues his own individual agenda, but whites do NOT work together to pursue a group agenda. That places Whites at a huge disadvantage when they confront more tribalistic & unified groups (Blacks, Muslims, Subcons, etc).

    2. White societies are dominated by Jewish elites. Jews pass as White, but they implement their own (((ethnic))) agenda. For a variety of reasons, Jews are obsessed with undermining White demographics, culture, and unity. Since Jews have their hands on the levers of power (politics, media, intelligentsia, courts, etc), they can get their way. Jewish elites have spent decades bringing down the hammer on White racial violence in the U.S. (KKK, lynchings), while sending White troops (like “American Sniper” Chris Kyle) overseas to lynch Muslims.

    3. Whites have become soft, comfortable, and decadent. They’re not interested in the difficult duties of citizenship. They don’t want to get their hands dirty. They want to take it easy and have fun. They want to watch movies, follow sportsball, gossip about celebs, goof around on Facebook. Let the “experts” take care of everything. Similar to how the Roman Empire’s citizens neglected their civic responsbilties, instead choosing to become addicted to gladiator fights and chariot races (“bread and circuses”).

    TLDR Summary:

    Whites are in decline due to the following 3 reasons.

    1. Too much social atomization and individuality, with no racial unity.
    2. Antagonistic Jewish elites use their control of institutions to implement an anti-White agenda.
    3. Whites have become soft and decadent, neglecting their civic duties and becoming sportball junkies.

    We are and have been for decades shamed, guilted and intimidated against forming any of this unity.

    True.

    “White racial violence” is an exaggeration, and you are furthering the myth by referring to it and using the phrase.

    You can use whatever term you feel is appropriate.

    My point was this. In the past, Whites took physical action to defend their racial welfare when they faced aggression from Non-Whites (primarily Blacks and before that Natives). Nowadays, they don’t, primarily because they’ll go to jail if they try.

    If you join the KKK to lynch local black rapists, it’s morally really not much different than joining the USM to fight terrorism. However, the former is portrayed to be totally morally deplorable, while the latter is highly esteemed. Why? It’s because of what our media/political elites promote.

    That’s actually sort of strange when you think about. The USM kills enormous numbers of innocent civilians all the time, while the KKK (regardless of whether you approve or disapprove of their tactics) overwhelmingly lynched guilty people. Say what you want about the Klan, but they didn’t kill 1 million Iraqi civilians.

    So it’s sort of strange how the people who lynched Emmet Till (who may have sexually assaulted their relative) have been portrayed as evil, while “American Sniper” Chris Kyle is shown as valiant and strong for sniping hundreds of Iraqis who lived thousands of miles away and were never given due-process.

    By the way, back in the early 1900s, President Woodrow Wilson praised a film called “Birth of Nation.” The film glorified the KKK and their protection of white female chastity against black sexual aggression in the Reconstruction era South. Imagine a President saying that in the year 2020.

    Which movie is more racist? “American Sniper” or “Birth of a Nation”?

    The point is that ethnocentric Jewish and ethnocentric Gentile elites have different interests. For Jews, the interest is crushing White racialism at home, while promoting insane-level White bloodthirstiness in the Middle East. Whearas to an old-school ethnocentric Gentile, it would’ve seemed bizarre to fight a war in the Middle East. It makes more sense in confronting the racial threat at home.

    As America has transitioned from a country with a Gentile elite to a Jewish elite, what’s morally acceptable/unacceptable has changed. Since elites control the media and public discourse, they can determine what’s “right” and “wrong.” That has powerful implications.

    If we one day have a Muslim elite, perhaps “American Sniper” will be branded as the most hate-filled movie ever. Maybe Bush will be portrayed as an Adolf Hitler-type of figure, while the actual Adolf Hitler will be seen in a less negative light.

    The fact is that Whites have a history of being strong, brave and adventurious. We are genetically that way and this fact has not disappeared.

    It’s not genetic. It’s cultural. Previous generations of Whites grew up in tough times (being pioneers, fighting ferocious Natives, braving the wilderness) and were tough people. Today’s Whites grow up in soft times (tv&smartphones, sterile suburbs, etc) and, not surprisingly, are soft people.

    The issue is less laziness than softness/decadence/immaturity. If you study the history of any civilization, you’ll see there’s a tendency to “go soft” after a few generations of prosperity.

    A group who grows up fighting for survival will be more ferocious and more focused. That’s why a lot of migrant groups (like the Muslims in Europe) seem so much more assertive than the effete dominant White populations.

I don’t know if the Brave browser is playing up (Guardian comment threads do something which makes certain comments appear again and again when I use Brave), but the section of Steve’s post from “Similarly, I’m about to say something you might not be ready to hear.” up to the blockquoted twitter quote on eliminating whiteness – the whole lot appears twice.

    Previous generations of Whites grew up in tough times (being pioneers, fighting ferocious Natives, braving the wilderness) and were tough people.

    Our ancestors were “pioneers, fighting ferocious Natives, braving the wilderness” precisely because they were, to put it in my words again, strong, brave and adventurious enough to get to places where they had to do that!

    You and I have inherited the same traits, but our easy lives have indeed made us soft. As you say, that has happened to people repeatedly down through history. My point is that our nature has not changed — and WE are the people who circumnavigated the planet, conquered it, invented most of what makes it modern, and then used some of our inventions to even go to the Moon and explore the planets!

    We are “tough people” who are out of shape because we have not had to exercise in a while.

    Now, regarding lynchings, KKK, etc., the history is well known, and Birth of a Nation is familiar to any one of us who had a film class. The truth is, Emmet Till was a significant fraction of the total lynchings of Blacks, because there really weren’t that many. (And there were plenty that happened to White criminals too on the frontier.) Those media elites to whom you refer have YOU convinced that it was bigger than it was.

    The biggest reason Black on White crime is bigger now is because our law enforcement has been pulled back. White people do not take the law into their own hands when they have a functioning legal system and state. iSteve has been all over the growth in Black crime since the Obama/Holder attack on White law enforcement.

    Yes, some of what you say was true, particularly in the South where it was needed. What you are advocating now is taking the law into our own hands, and yes, you might be proven correct. My point is just that this is not how a normal White society functions. We are sick, but not quite in the way you imply.

    Interesting list, but in addition to self-selection effects, there is the likelihood that specialties like psych, plastics and derm are attractive (‘competitive’) because they’re high-paying while relatively low-risk..

    Good points. But even if the ranking is not on the basis of “specialty difficulty,” each specialty, absent affirmative action, could be expected to skim the cream of those who apply, I would think. (And with affirmative action, a black candidate who is not considered cream would have to have substantially worse grades and qualifications than white applicants.) So you could assume that black MDs not in competitive specialties are not that smart/conscientious/etc., however “easy” the specialty.

    The education affirmative action chapter 19 of The Bell Curve shows about a 1.3 SD difference in MCAT scores between black and white matriculated first years, and mentions some unstated much bigger amount for elite schools. If it’s similar to their LSAT for matriculates data, that is 2.9 SDs gap for the top ten elite law schools. At the very tippy top, Harvard, the gap shrinks, which means if you must use a black doctor, get one from Harvard.

    It was very impressive how H&M dug up so much testing data-by-race lurking in obscure publications and report appendices. I bet that the data-masters have tightened things up considerably now, necessitating lawsuits like the Harvard lawsuit as the only way to shake out some numbers (in response to which we now have the “standardized test not required” movement).

    Deaf is the latest. The capitalization recognizes that deaf people are a community. My view is that deaf simply describes a condition, and not all deaf people are on board with the “deaf community” manifesto stating that deaf is super groovy and that treatments are genocidal. I lived in Maryland near a major deaf university, and boy is there disagreement among the deaf. There was a sit-in almost weekly on some issue or another.

    Our ancestors were “pioneers, fighting ferocious Natives, braving the wilderness” precisely because they were, to put it in my words again, strong, brave and adventurious enough to get to places where they had to do that!

    Sure. Europeans spent thousands of years living under very difficult circumstances. Then they came to America and continued to live under difficult circumstances. Which is why they had the toughness to deal with ferocious Native tribes, as well as manage large numbers of Black slave laborers.

    My point is that our nature has not changed

    It’d be more accurate to say that our potential hasn’t changed. Today’s Whites could be scrappy and tough like those of the pre-60s era, but it’d have to take some type of huge change in environment or culture. Placed in the right circumstances, today’s Whites could potentially be as tough as Old West cowboys or Medieval Crusaders.

    Those media elites to whom you refer have YOU convinced that it was bigger than it was.

    My point wasn’t that “White racial violence” was common in the past. My point was that Whites used to be capable of collective group action (often involving physical force) in defense of their tribal interest. Now they can’t really do that anymore because the (((elites))) have clamped down on this, apart of a broader strategy of undermining White racialism. To the extent that Whites can inflict ethnic-based violence these days, they have to do it through the USM. However, the USM is being used to advance Israeli interests, not White interests.

    We are sick, but not quite in the way you imply.

    My point was that White sickness takes three forms.

    -Extreme social atomization
    -Antagonism from heavily Jewish elites
    -Softness driven by easy living

    Lots of empires have gone through the transformation that I’ve described.

    Like the Romans. The Romans started off as hardy pioneers, with a strong degree of ethnic cohesion. They built an impressive empire of immense prosperity and accomplishment. Unfortunately, the prosperity undermined their social bonds and made them decadent, so the empire weakened and was eventually destroyed by barbarian invasions.

    By the way, before it collapsed, the Roman Empire was undermined by large-scale importation of slave laborers, settlement of barbarians in Roman territories, and low native birthrates. So something interesting worth considering.

    In case you’re wondering, I think there are two groups who are highly comparable to the barbarians that destroyed Rome. In America, it’s Blacks. In the European Union, it’s Muslims. Hispanics are more analagous to the slave laborer helots.

    Whites are getting progressively closer to the end-stage of a typical advanced civilization. Can they reverse the slide? Sure. Will they? It’s possible, but there needs to be a huge “shock” to the system to accomplish this.

They no longer pretend there’s a limit to what they want or to how much they hate us, we no longer pretend to take their words seriously.

    A lot of the woke mania is driven by the realization that the most loyal and easily riled component of the progressive coalition is soon going to be 3rd banana in the national hierarchy and that Latinos don’t really share the zeal for racial scorekeeping that blacks do. Ultimately I think there will be an organic version of the Sailer Strategy that emerges where a plurality of Latinos align with a significant majority of white voters politically, because neither group is particularly interested in living in communities where the government, schools, or politics are driven by the interests of blacks. Although people like TNC, Kendi X., Dyson, and various confederates won’t admit it, they see the window is closing for cementing blacks as a group whose moral standing and political interests should come before everyone else (an idea only shared with a diminishing number of lefty whites) is rapidly closing, and this is a last ditch effort to ingrain that idea before demography takes them down another peg.

  85. Dr Rhea Boyd has locked us out of her Twitter feed, so we cannot examine her hateful tweets.

    A few thoughts:

    (1) The British NHS has been in the news for insisting that patients cannot choose the race of their doctor. (In unrelated news, they are seldom able to choose their doctor at all.) The idea is that white deplorables object to black doctors on racist grounds. Well, if I found I was being treated by a doctor who had publicly expressed her hatred of white people on many occasions, I would object, and I would be treated as a deplorable.

    Minority professionals are encouraged to express their hatred of people of other races, and they are not held to the same standards as whites. It is as if the law does not apply – they have a “get out of jail free” card.

    (2) It has been unkindly suggested that some black American doctors are “diversity hires”, who shy away from practising medicine because they realise how much harm they will do. Instead they walk around with a clipboard telling other doctors what to do. Other unkind people suggest that universities create nonsense jobs for minorities who cannot make the grade as professors in a serious department. It would be quite wrong to examine Dr Rhea Boyd’s page at Harvard’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion and conclude that she confirms both these wretched tropes.

    https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/diversity/rhea-boyd/

    (3) Jonathan Metzl – what is it about Jewish writers and their hatred of white Gentiles? David Cole recently wrote about this at Taki’s, in the context of black violence against American Jews:

    https://www.takimag.com/article/suicide-final-solution/

    I don’t have space to link to all the op-eds by Jews defending the nonwhites who are knocking them off. Column after column making excuses for the attackers and slamming Trump and others on the right for “demonizing” Jew-haters of color. Jewish journalists and activists have even opposed the simple solution of increased police patrols in besieged Jewish neighborhoods, lest the presence of cops “marginalize” the piceous pogromists. There have been hundreds of op-eds and social media posts by Jewish leftists defending the thuggish criminals and arguing against any measures that might provide relief for the beleaguered Jews. In my “golem” piece, I referred to that kind of behavior as suicidal. But I didn’t go far enough: It’s actually murder-suicide…taking themselves out in the name of taking out the West.

    We Jews can do the “Medea” thing quite well (“I love my children but I hate you more”).

    For example, the disaggregated drivers of all-cause white mortality (conditions such as suicide, chronic liver disease, and drug and alcohol poisoning) have been described as “diseases of despair” rather than diseases of disproportionate opportunity (to wield firearms) and access (to prescription opiates).

    This is supposed to be a scientific journal. Does Dr. Boyd have any evidence that whites have SUPERIOR access to these items? I thought that whitey (OK, Koreans) put TOO MANY liquor stores in minority areas, TOO MANY places where you can pick up a fo’ty of Colt 45.

    If blacks have disproportionate(ly lower) opportunity to wield firearms why is the per capita rate of blacks committing gun crimes maybe 10x the white rate? For some reason, whites only seem to wield this disproportionate access against themselves.

    In other words, to “maintain an imagined place atop a racial hierarchy”, white Americans who harbour “racial resentment” adopt political orientations and voting patterns largely based on if, and how, those choices seem to limit the freedoms or resources available to non-white and/or Black people. Yet they also do so, even when those decisions threaten their own wellbeing or that of other white people. This, in Metzl’s estimation, is how whiteness harms population health.

    I would like to read a real review of Metzl’s book.

    I think Republican politicians too often do have a blind spot. They don’t want to take into account that there are lots of needy whites out here who need help. Where my family lives the local paper says that 90% of the elementary school kids are on free or reduced lunches; for the district overall the figure is 70%. Most of these students are white. Our area is not doing well and it is mostly white people; outside the county seat it is almost all white people. The local paper is conservative and Republican and the majority of voters are Republican. And yet local government is always looking for grants before they do anything. Our Republican representatives never seem to refer to the poverty in the area but it is a clear and essential fact of life.

    My reading of Dr. Boyd’s review is this:

    Socialism is what keeps people alive and what produces material wealth.

    Whites fight against socialism because socialism forces them to treat colored people as equals.

    By voting and fighting against socialism, whites are bringing up their own death rates and impoverishment. But whites are willing to accept death, illness, and poverty to maintain their own privileges.

    The solution to death, poverty, illness, and inequality is to eliminate the concept of whiteness. Whites will vote the same as the colored peoples of the world: 70 – 90% in favor of socialism. It is not necessary to physically eliminate whites, as long as they no longer identify with any discernible group interest.

    She doesn’t seem to mention the status of those-formerly-white identifying as colored. Presumably, they would be within their rights, as long as they supported socialism.

    How many people read Lancet, especially an article in it like this one?

    LANCET was once highly respected- I had even known of it as a kid, in the same snottily-superficial way any intellectually over-precocious kid might have known about THE NEW YORKER, or Nobel Prizes in literature, or that there were “better” universities than even Harvard out there on the other side of the Atlantic, and so fantasize about one day showing-up all one’s classmates by getting a full scholarship to Oxford or the Sorbonne (whatever that was).

    Anyway, the start of my really, really questioning credentialed experts, even in the sciences, was when in the aftermath of the Iraq Attack LANCET published a study (completely discredited subsequently) claiming that Dumbya’s invasion had killed half a million Iraqis. At a time when the media was breathlessly reporting every single US casualty and every single Iraqi mass casualty event too (all those mass bombings) this seemed ridiculous, and it turned out LANCET’s methodology had been a tad too ethnographic-i.e. relying on the self-reporting of lying Arabs instead of actually counting bodies.

Metzl explores how white Americans arm themselves with guns or votes, and attempt to individually secure the benefits of whiteness, shaping in the process the population health outcomes of everyone living in the wake of their political decisions—including other white people. From expansive gun legislation to broad divestment in government programmes, Metzl characterises white liberties that endanger white lives or imperil white futures as “dying of whiteness”.

    White gentiles have been the victims of sustained 50+ year Jewish minoritarian attack on white American traditions, values, culture, religion, our republic, jurisprudence, Constitution, natural rights, schools, jobs, wages, marriages, neighborhoods, race and nation … for the terrible, terrible crime of building the best, freest, most prosperous nation on earth and making the mistake of allowing Jews to come.

    Actually, the population is deteriorating, including whites (and Jews).

    The deterioration comes from the natural rate of mutations among genes, and the absence of Darwinian selection that came with the technological age. In other words, harmful mutations are now carried in the gene pool and passed on, whereas before modern medicine and the abundance of food and shelter, people with harmful mutations died early in infancy or childhood. Michael Woodley and others have documented a steady decline in intelligence in the European populations well before the migration waves occurred. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXxifvpVHT4&list=PLWkGe8mzcPc9qJhJ2ANdbKvfMfbYIzJDn&index=3&t=0s

    The willingness of the white populations to tolerate waves of hostile immigrants may be related to a deterioration of the inherited tendency to favor the in-group rather than out-group individuals. Computer simulations show that all other things being equal, groups with high ethnocentrism have a significant advantage.

    The effective genocide of whites has been underway for a long time. It’s called “minoritarianism” and involves destroying white nations as white nations. And involves everything from all the black-man/white-woman stuff pushed by Hollyweird and Madison Ave. to most seriously mass immigration.

    There’s no need for this program to be changed to actual physical extermination, because that would just cause an actual hot war and they are already winning. And most obviously because most of the people involved in the white genocide are whites themselves–fellow travelers, virtue signaling rabidly to show their bona fides and who–thoroughly brainwashed by minoritarianism– believe they are not part of a genocide, but rather doing “good work” quashing “racism!”

    Yapping on about “extermination” as if physical extermination is going to start any day now, makes alt-right people look like loons and makes it more difficult to do the real work of pointing out that if we are denied our nations we are being denied the right to exist–an effective destruction, i.e. genocide, of white peoples.

(His complaint was that everyone in his department was sending him mixed and ambiguous signals). There was another fellow who gave you no sense of what he was thinking about his situation. My rough impression was that one of these characters had no business being in any kind of position where she had any real autonomy (under a supervisor who would have told her to shut up or find another job).

Where Bill Wyman had such a rig and all you heard was second harmonic on the low octave, here he has a nice authoritative low end, which makes me think he is actually DI’d and the amp is for the band and/or appearances. Nigel Harrison played on the original and his basslines on this and several other ETTB tracks were crucial to the success of the record. But he pissed C&D off and was kicked out of the band. A bit cuntish of them IMO, but since they are probably are either done touring or will maybe do one farewell round (she’ll be 75 in July) it’s academic now.

    The rule should be simple: when talking about people, as a group or an (unspecified) individual, capitalize both White and Black — e.g. Blacks refers to black people collectively (and a Black to an unspecified black person), and Whites refers to white people collectively (“) — but do not capitalize them when used as adjectives — this is my practice, anyway — some people also capitalize white and black when used as adjectives (ala Asian, Hispanic/Latino, Jewish, etc).

    In the excerpt here, she clearly did not do that, e.g. she capitalizes Black even when used as an adjective — however I see inconsistency and sloppiness about this all the time, so I can never really say when or if there is an agenda — but it is worth noting I suppose:

    Comprehending the deaths of these Black children—killed by white men and boys in the American South in 1963—requires confronting the white racial terror that threatened Black communities and unearthing the legacy of death that courses alongside even the youngest Black lives.

    That’s common ruling class usage to keep Blacks out of the deracination -> leadership process. Same with other ethnicities. Half-breeds get grandfathered (heh) in and act as enforcers as here.

    Drugs, alcohol, and promiscuity are killing off white america.

    Barrenness is worse than all these combined. Were responsible married white couples to have more children, even just one apiece, these problems could be outbred to a tolerable level. Junkies, sots, and sluts don’t have a high TFR. Especially those who die young.

    He could be the Tony Randall of tortoises.

    Better yet, the “Roger Ramjet” Raghav.

    He should get together with Kirk Douglas, Olivia de Havilland, and Beverly Cleary, who were also born in 1916, and are still going strong.

    John Tyler was born in the 18th century, became President in the 19th century and died in 1862.

    In 2018 two of his grandsons were still alive. Not great-great grandsons, grandsons. .

    She doesn’t speak, or write in Nigerian and those glasses are hardly Swahili.

    Poor guy, he probably is frustrated by this turn of events.

    My neighbors, decades ago, had a dog that got old and decrepit, was in obvious pain, and the morning he was supposed to go for his last ride to the vet he snuck out of the house to mount a neighbor’s bitch in heat. They decided if he could still do that maybe it wasn’t his time yet and he lasted another six months or so.

    In her wheelhouse, she is pretty good. James Mangold (most recently, Ford v. Ferrari ) said he thought someday she would do a really significant role for him once. Hasn’t happened yet, but he’s not done making movies, and she probably isn’t either.

    The second Mrs Tyler, their grandmother, was a Gardiner from Gardiners Island, and descended from Lion Gardiner, arguably the first New Yorker. (As in the first person living under English authority in the future state.)

    There was a first-cousin-once-removed marriage within the first century– not a big dating pool on the island, then or now– from which I descend, so the Tyler boys are my cousins at least twice.

    Another bit of trivia about Tyler– he died in Richmond in 1862. So, by one definition, he is the only president to die outside the United States.

    As an actress she is more famous for the roles she turned down than anything she did: Blue Velvet and Blade Runner.

    Her best actual role was probably a little remembered film called Intimate Stranger. She also did a story arc on the Ken Wahl Wiseguy series that was pretty good.

    Her biggest liabilities were her wide face that doesn’t work that well on the anamorphic big screen-she positively smoked on NTSC TV though-and having started in film at over 30. She did her first real major release at nearly 40 in fact. Given that, she has done okay, to say the least.

    But Blondie is definitely due for a wrap-up. Her voice is just not there and Chris is obviously worn out. Clem is still going, but he has always worked and will do okay.

    This is no longer the case since the Packers beat the Seahawks & the NFC will have a white QB representing their side. I’m glad if only because I won’t have to suffer through all the solemn hoopla about the first SB w/Black QBs, blah, blah, blah. There’s always next year though!

    It isn’t often that I need an MD . . . but when I do, that MD is not: any flavor of affirmative action.
    At least while I still have a choice.

    The reality is that whites do have collective unity, just not in the manner that you prefer.

    The reality is a certain group of whites are obsessed with Jews and whites they deem as being “anti-white”.

    I would agree that people, not just whites, are becoming soft and decadent and neglecting civic duties. But as far as being “sportsball junkies”, so what? It is white tradition to engage in sport and to be entertained.

    So, what are YOU doing to stop this alleged “demographic suicide” of whites other than lament on a blog?
