From the New York Times opinion section:

Here’s the New York Times today stoking more racist fear and loathing of white men. Just remember, racist hate isn’t bad, it’s positively good when it’s directed at white men with guns. Why? Because they are bad. As Stalin said, all that matters in politics is “Who? Whom?

Granted, my analysis of the major intellectual trends of our times sounds kind of reductionist. Surely, it has to be more subtle than that?

Nah, it doesn’t. The 2021 style of public discourse is really that dumb and hate-filled.

By the way, the author undoubtedly took a class in college from somebody who thought Foucault was cool:

By Danté Stewart

Mr. Stewart is a writer and speaker on race, religion and politics. He is the author of “Shoutin’ in the Fire: An American Epistle.”

There is a memory I will never forget. It sits in my body like a nightmare. It crept from my feet, up to my stomach and into my mind as my ears heard “not guilty” and “Kyle Rittenhouse” in the same sentence. I sighed. “Damn,” I said, my body getting a little hot from the anxiety and the rage. “Damn.”

… My mind tries to forget, but my body remembers.

… In the heat of a South Carolina summer, just two weeks after my body went down in and back up out of the baptismal pool, the white garments sticking to my body like swimming trunks, I am traveling on a back road with my sister, two brothers and a cousin….

I see the rage take over Depaul’s body. …

The anxiety — nah, more than that — the terror takes over my body when suddenly —

… The first thing I know to do is to run my hands down my body to make sure I wasn’t hit. My hands tremble as I pat my body. …

My body wouldn’t stop shaking. I learned at church that baptism saved us from ourselves and from the wrath of God. But it did not save our bodies from the wrath of man.

… No amount of Sunday school lessons or math problems or names on the back of orange jerseys or degrees from academic institutions could save my body from American terror.

This was 53 years after Emmett Till’s mutilated body appeared in the pages of Jet magazine for the world to see. It was four years before the news of Trayvon Martin shot by George Zimmerman; it was six years before people would stare at the lifeless body of Mike Brown as he lay face down on the hot Ferguson, Mo., concrete for four hours; …

I wonder what he feels, what he has seen, what he knows and what dreams sit in his body.

… We are exhausted, but we catch our breath again.

As I’ve said a million times, in the decades from W.E.B. Du Bois to Berry Gordy, blacks famously had souls. Now, though, according to academics, they just have bodies.

By the way, here’s my Taki’s column on an interracial murder with a rifle that got almost zero press attention at the time and has since disappeared into the national memory-hole:

Racial Revenge?
Steve Sailer

May 13, 2020

Last Friday, the day after two whites in Georgia were arrested in the vastly publicized killing of the black jogger/prowler Ahmaud Arbery, a young black gunman murdered two octogenarian whites, Paul and Lidia Marino, while they were visiting their son’s grave at a veterans’ cemetery in Delaware. After a six-hour firefight with the police, the shooter, a 29-year-old black man, was dead—whether at police hands or his own remains unknown.

In contrast to Arbery’s killing, this second interracial killing case has gotten virtually zero national media attention through Tuesday morning, even though it’s fairly spectacular in scale and quite curious in motive. For example, an eyewitness speculated that the killer appeared to have brought extra ammunition for his planned shoot-out to the death with the police.

The cops don’t have an explanation for the killer’s actions yet. It wasn’t a robbery. It doesn’t sound like a contract killing. (I can’t rule that out, but I did check if the victims, a retired lithographer and a housewife, were close relatives of any mafioso of the same surname, but found zero connections.) It could be some kind of personal beef, but nobody has found a connection between the killer and the killed at this point.

No confession note, social media, or interviews with the shooter’s family have yet emerged to explain his motivations. Although, to be frank, the press doesn’t seem to be all that motivated to get to the bottom of this seemingly random slaughter. There isn’t even much talk about what kind of weapon the killer used, in contrast to the gun porn after similar mass shootings.

Imagine that the circumstances were reversed and if on Friday a young white man had hunted down an elderly black couple visiting their son’s grave at a veterans’ cemetery.

    A true account of an evening in Rust Belt City. After the movie, Mrs. ic1000 was impatient at the slow pace being set by her father-in-law and me, so she walked ahead, around a corner. A young man came out of the dark, knocked her down, and rifled through her purse, waving a pistol at her. Annoyed at her resistance and at his paltry \$2 reward, he shot her in the leg. He looked up to see me charging at him and took aim, but the gun misfired. He ran away. We went to the hospital, relieved at what the bullet had missed on its way through. A suspect was arrested, but the case was dismissed due to police incompetence. That suspect ended up in jail for a different crime.

    I could come up with a headline that is very, very similar to the one gracing Danté Stewart’s account.

    A man after my own heart. I’ve said that before, many times. He did more than flirt–eyewitness accounts indicate groping, bodily contact, etc. She did not tattle on him–most likely some of Till’s little kid associates spilled the beans–and she did not admit to lying when she was a doddering old lady–the duplicitous historian literally penciled that bullshit into the margins of his notes well after the interview.

    Unlike his father, Till certainly didn’t deserve to be killed for what he did. He deserved to be beaten up.

    If The Night Stalker Richard Ramirez was a Generation Z guy committing serial killings in the 2020s and not a Baby Boomer committing serial killings in the 1980s would The Democrat Run Mainstrean Media still have covered him wall-to-wall or memory holed him very quickly? I ask because Hispanics are seen as less socially White in the 2020s, where in the 1980s/1970s Latinos were seen as more socially White so it was not considered racist to cover violent crimes committed by Hispanics. Back than in the 1980s/the 1970s covering violent crimes committed by Latinos was seen as no different than covering violent crimes committed by La Cosa Nostra, but in the 2020s violent crimes committed by Hispanics are treated just like violent crimes committed by African Americans in that it must never be talked about and memory holed ASAP.

    Some writers seem to be using who/whom with a different connotation. Instead of meaning who is going to come out on top over whom, it means that the morality of an action is not inherent to the nature of the action itself, but instead to who is doing the action to whom. The Black guy shooting the old White couple is kind of too bad, but they probably called him the n word. Memory hole material. The White guys shooting the jogging burglar is practically a new Holocaust. Who/whom.

  25. White men with testosterone don’t realize how absolutely terrifying/sexy they are to to lefties.

    Their fantasies — both male and female — involve some imposing white man barking them into place, clearing the area of degeneracy, and then ramming them through. Imagine Darth Vader crossed with a mid-90’s Brad Pitt and you have the twisted, sexualized vision that these broken folks have of right wing white males.

    I have known some people from Oconomowoc. There was a sports club called the “Five Os”, because of the vowels.

    Pewaukee (close to Waukesha) native and fireman’s son JJ Watt has offered to cover the funeral expenses for the people killed. Very touching but not surprising. A few years back some firemen were killed in action outside Madison. He quietly donated \$10,000 to the GoFundMe page, using the name “Justin Watt”.

    Johnny Walker, I have learned not to care what happens to Palestinians or how brutal the Israeli army may be. The most liberating words in the English language are “none of my business”.
    The only thing that matters for you and I is that our tax dollars and our military should not be aiding anyone on either side. No entangling foreign alliances.
    Our only interest in Israel should be guaranteeing that that government and its ardent Jewish supporters in this country have zero influence on our foreign policy.
    Our foreign policy toward the Middle East should be “what’s in it for average Joe American?”
    With that in mind, I don’t care if the Israeli army shot a journalist. I care about millions of illegals coming into my own country. I want to know why we haven’t been shooting them.

  34. Luzzatto says:
    @Ano

    I was going to say that Kyle Rittenhouse shot 3 Moor men and that’s why it’s considered White on Black violence, but than I remembered none of the 3 guys he shot have Italian last names. So now that is no longer an option to spin this as White on Black violence. The only other option is the 3 White men are Black Adjacent.

    This sounds like a parody “personal account of something that (didn’t) happen,” I would write:

    “… We are exhausted, but we catch our breath again.”

    The breath thing and being exhausted, and standing in one’s power, are frequently used by blacks to convey a since of some superior sojourn against the forces of evil. A complete inversion of reality of who is the offender and who is the victim, typically.

    These phrases and stories remind me of the old feminist tropes about “click moments”. Alleged incidents that unsurprisingly sound like the feminist herself writing an over-the-top script. Something like:

    I will never forget the day my boss ordered me, as usual, to make his coffee and, as was his privilege, comments about my breasts and buttocks, and how he would leave his wife for me. Yet, while claiming I was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen, he questioned why I was not at home, pregnant and baking for my husband, and why I had even bothered to major in 17th Century English Lit at Oberlin anyhow. It was at that moment I realized, no matter how accomplished I was, leading the sales force, being employee of the decade, and having won 7 consecutive Boston Marathons–I would always just be that beautiful Miss Kansas (runner up, 1982) to him. It clicked then, this was my future–and I would change it.

    But “Bardon” is more right than wrong.
    Lenin first came up with the idea of the slogan in 1921.
    Trotsky was the first to use the shortened “who whom” version.
    Later, Stalin adopted the pithy expression. Betcha he didn’t credit Trotsky who, by then, had been labeled a “revisionist”. Better than being a “denier”, I guess.

    “Who Whom”: it’s always nice to see correct grammar being observed, pace Calvin Trillin’s, “As far as I’m concerned, ‘whom’ is a word that was invented to make everyone sound like a butler.”

    All the black people talking about black bodies sort of reminds me of Jaynes’ Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind. He discusses how in the oldest Near Eastern writings people are not afraid. They tremble with fear, or quiver with rage, or their kidneys ache with anger, or whatever. Scott Alexander says that maybe it comes from having a different theory of mind. Like, that inner voice that narrates your life, is that “you”? How do you know it’s “you” and not your own personal God talking to you?

    It sort of makes you wonder about super-Christiany people who say that “man” is all lust, rage, snits, snails, and puppy dog tails, whereas God is sugar, and spice, and everything nice. When they see a hot chick, do they hear “their” voice inside their heads say “I want to do her,”? Whereas a Bronze Age middle easterner might have “lust rise in his…”, y’know where lust rises, but then the Evangelical hears “God” say “don’t try to fuck her, you’re married.” That would kind of explain why they think atheists cannot act ethically, and that without God they would be out raping and robbing.

    Back to blacks and black bodies. It is interesting from a bicameral mind point of view that the editorial’s author’s body trembles with fear, but he never says, “I was afraid.”

    Blacks are far more likely to be schizophrenic than other races, raw male Africans from the Caribbean who are located in Britain have ~10% schizophrenia rate. Are they more bicameral, in a Jaynesian sense?

    Like what would analysis of blacks’ writing show? Would they “be afraid” or would their “bodies tremble” in the same rough frequencies as in whites’ writings? Would be an interesting study. Might even get racial reckoning funding if you could spin it as “blacks be processin’ dey emotions in ways of bein’ dat we worthless whites must understand to make Black Lives Matter as much as they need to so that blacks can feel oneness with the Earth Mother in our societies structurally racisming.” Or some such. iPad auto capitalizes Black Lives Matter. Also, sometimes when I write “black disf-“ it changes it to “black disgust.” Bad Apple! Bad

    I don’t know either, but it is safe to say that getting red-pilled on the black question is a necessary prerequisite to getting redpilled on the JQ. Like Jared Taylor, Sailer prefers to focus on the NQ which is a necessary step for normies.

    He and the NYT staff would say that those two deserved it for what they had done to Emmet Till.

    No, literally it’s mainstream for Democrats to blame whites for incidents that happened before birth

    I care about millions of illegals coming into my own country. I want to know why we haven’t been shooting them.

    Uniparty democrats: illegals vote democrat (or will), expansion of welfare state.

    Uniparty recucklicans: rewarded by donors seeking cheap labor.

    Uniparty Jews: own both “opposing” parties; chaos wrought by diversity takes attention off Jewish antics which in no way benefit the USA.

    Whites: demonized by democrats and Jews, ignored by recucklican cowards (redundant description)

  73. The Guardian runs this headline :

    “all three white men found guilty of murdering Black man as he jogged – live”

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/live/2021/nov/24/ahmaud-arbery-verdict-killing-trial-live

    And this Begging Letter appears on the page.

    A terrifying crackdown on voting rights. An escalating climate emergency. Corrosive racial inequality.
    The US faces critical tests in 2022 – and independent journalism that is free to all has never been more crucial.
    If you can, please make a year-end gift.

    I see the “black bodies” thing as (among other things) a subtle – maybe even subconscious – way for blacks to rationalize their conspicuous impulsiveness. They are body over mind people, not so much the other way around. (Whites and Asians tend, by contrast, to be mind over body people.) Blacks often opt for reaction over reflection when dealing with a crisis. It’s what gets them into trouble so often, both with society at large and each other. Who knows if it’s something they can ever overcome?

    “Mind your own business”… where would public broadcasting be if they followed that mantra? Their international stories seem to be appeals to the “international community” and their NGO driven agendas are nothing more than a direct appeal to government for “more money for ME!”

    That’s why the words “tax” and “cost” seem extraordinarily scarce in their stories.

    I just figure, if someone’s already doing it, I can encourage them to do better!

    Ha ha ha, Corvinus, accusations of psychopathy don’t work when they come form a person who gave up their humanity and soul ages ago for the unholy cause you joined.
