Record number of African migrants at U.S.-Mexico border

By GUSTAVO SOLIS
DEC. 8, 2019 5:45 AM

The number of African migrants heading to the U.S. through Mexico has more than doubled this year — from roughly 2,700 in 2018 to 5,800 today, according to data from the federal government.

That figure has been steadily rising since 2007 — the year the Mexican government began including migrants from African countries who have contact with immigration officials in their annual migration reports — when the number was 460.

And that dramatic increase has been mostly left out of U.S. immigration conversations, activists say.

“Even within the immigration movement, you see a lack of visibility of black narratives with what is happening at the border,” said Guerline Jozef, director and co-founder of the Haitian Bridge Alliance, an organization that helps black migrants from all over the world.

Jozef was initially caught off-guard by the number of black migrants south of the border.

… On top of these dangers, African migrants face additional obstacles in terms of language and cultural barriers. They also have less access to services from legal aid organizations who do not have staff who speak the same language as the migrants.

They also face racism and discrimination because of the color of their skin, Jozef added. …

As a result, thousands of migrants fleeing from civil wars and ethnic conflicts are stuck, said Rebecca Alemayehu, a California-based immigration lawyer who represents African asylum seekers and has made several trips to Tijuana and Tapachula. …

Despite this obstacle, Alemayehu said, African migrants continue to arrive at the Mexico-Guatemala border every day and there is no sign that the flow will slow down.

Like Jozef, Alemayehu did not realize there was a growing number of black migrants in Mexico until she saw them for herself.

Last winter, while volunteering with a legal aid nonprofit called Al Otro Lado, she noticed a large number of migrants from Eritrea and Ethiopia.

Interestingly, the Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Abiy Ahmed, recently won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for negotiating a peace treaty with Eritrea and releasing political prisoners at home. There is still a certain amount of ethnic tension in the huge country of Ethiopia with its soaring population of over 100 million, but overall times are pretty good, relatively speaking. For example, construction of a colossal hydroelectric dam on the Blue Nile is proceeding.

Alemayehu is the daughter of Ethiopian immigrants. She was able to speak with the migrants in their own language and, after follow up trips, began building trust within the African community in Tijuana….

Here in the U.S., the plight of black migrants has gained traction among some elected officials.

In November, members of the Congressional Black Caucus visited black migrants at the border.

“There are record numbers of African immigrants seeking asylum at the U.S. border, particularly as Europe closes its doors to migrants,” they wrote in a statement.

Of course, as Africa becomes more part of the modern world, the number of Africans who contemplate departing for the First World goes up.

  1. Maybe it’s just me, but Gustavo:

    comes across as little bit concerned about this latest development, alarmed even. Perhaps at some point he realized that once YT is gone, the noble mestizo will be handed the bill for African subsidy.

  2. on the topic of the world’s most important graph:

    • Replies: @res
    That is from a WaPo article:
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/12/03/precariousness-modern-young-adulthood-one-chart/
    based on this tweet:
    https://twitter.com/graykimbrough/status/1198703644721524744

    That graphic seems like a fail to me. First, the raw data includes the silent generation and earlier (born before 1946):
    https://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/z1/dataviz/dfa/distribute/table/#quarter:119;series:Net%20worth;demographic:generation;population:all;units:shares
    Adding them in would help give a sense of a typical progression as one generation passed its wealth on to the next.

    As an example, if we assume the silent generation was 1925-1945 making the median year 1935 they turned 60 in 1993 with them and the older generations holding 70.9% of wealth. When the median boomer (1955) turned 60 in 2015 they held 55.1% of the wealth with their elders holding 27.3% for a total of 82.4% (compare 70.9%). 45 would be another good year to check given the median Gen Xer has passed that. As would 30 given the median Millenial has passed that.

    They also have an age version of that data (70+, 55-69, 40-54, Under 40). Under 40s as a group have about half the relative wealth in 2019 as they did in 1989.

    Second is the more serious issue. Per capita, it's not just about crime statistics. The WaPo at least acknowledges this point, unlike the original tweet.

    on the topic of the world’s most important graph:
     
    Actually the graph makes no real sense.

    How many boomers have this kind of wealth?

    How many boomers have any kind of wealth?

    Did the graph factor in the fact that "boomer" is a slippery-sloppy term that includes Yuppies, no doubt over represented on the graph, and Gen-Out, tens of millions of downsized workers who made corporations rich when their work went to China, Mexico, (etc.), and are no doubt not on any current graphs because they died early or will work crap jobs till they die?

    Does the graph in any way allude to the inter-generational work inequity, such as over half of boomers for reasons already cited will never retire, or going further back, the USA now has a record number of worker over 85 who cannot afford to retire? (Paul Craig Roberts links to an article on this subject at one of his columns.)

    Put more succintly, has WaPo ever read The 25-point Program of the NSDAP?

    This same shit happened to Germany. Point number 15. For reference:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Socialist_Program#The_25-point_Program_of_the_NSDAP

    Quite a few youngsters are c0nsidering socialism. Quite a few oldsters are thinking of a certain type of socialism themselves, sorry to report.
  3. The answer to this is simple. The U.S. needs to adopt the same ‘first border’ standard used by other nations. One cannot claim refugee status in the U.S. until all ‘closer’ to home options have been exhausted. So, an African would have to apply for and be denied in 50-100 nations before they could even try for a U.S. claim.

    Absolutely. This is the international standard. Refugees are required to accept asylum at the first safe place they reach. Otherwise they are just shopping for where they want to live.

    It's amazing how many 'professionals' in the refugee racket don't know this. Of course they do know it, they just don't like it.

    Boomers would be expected to have more wealth since they are older and have accumulated more.

  5. Not just the first world, it will spill over everywhere. Just check the ‘travel’ (Read: Emigration) section of Nairaland. Nowhere is safe.

    https://www.nairaland.com/travel

    This documentary is from 9 years ago. It deals with African asylum seekers in Argentina. My favourite part is the matter-of-fact delivery of the line “Generally recognised as the whitest country in Latin American, it has even been said that Argentina is more racially European than immigrant-saturated Europe.” Everything restates the patterns you see over and over.

    There’s plenty of others, such as those dealing with the Nigerians hustlin’ in Moscow. It follows a familiar pattern for Nigerian settlement, becoming established through universities and student visas before the inflows of the others. A non-trivial number of Nigerians established themselves in Poland through this.

    • Replies: @LondonBob
    I studied abroad in Poland in the early noughties. You could actually identify individually the five or so blacks you would see out and about in Warsaw. I went back a couple of years ago, a noticeable increase in Africans and I could sense the bridgehead had been established and the dysfunction Africans bring was just starting. Soon every Polish public policy question will be framed by the need to mitigate the damage they do.

    Wow. Probably shouldn't have, but I spent an hour reading their stories. We are well and truly wrecked. The world is their oyster, but especially the US and UK.

    On the bright side, less profanity among the nigerians. Maybe migrants are better after all.

    SO MANY American colleges offer "full funding" for african and asian migrants, but not to US students.

    This is exactly the opposite of what our MSM say. I think it's because they're working their diversity percentages, and Nigerian expats tend to be smarter (and especially harder working) than domestic thugs & hos.

    I didn't watch the vids. Only so much I can stand at once.

  6. This will be getting increasingly more hellish before it gets any better.

    “There are record numbers of African immigrants seeking asylum at the U.S. border, particularly as Europe closes its doors to migrants,” they wrote in a statement.

    Oh, we are talking “rerouting” now? Because there are “doors being closed”?

    https://www.pewresearch.org/global/2018/03/22/at-least-a-million-sub-saharan-africans-moved-to-europe-since-2010/

    Europe’s border statistics show a well-traveled route of migrants from Africa to Europe. But this does not necessarily mean Europe is the top choice of potential sub-Saharan African migrants. In fact, in several of the countries surveyed by Pew Research Center, those planning to migrate more often cited the U.S., as opposed to Europe, as their preferred destination when asked where in the world they planned to move.

    For example, among the 42% of Ghanaians who say they plan to migrate abroad in the next five years, four-in-ten (41%) identify the U.S. as their intended destination, while three-in-ten (30%) name a country in the EU, Norway or Switzerland. Similarly, shares of potential migrants in South Africa (39% vs. 22%) and Kenya (39% vs. 12%) say they intend to migrate to the U.S. over Europe.

    Like Jozef, Alemayehu did not realize there was a growing number of black migrants in Mexico until she saw them for herself.

    A whole truckload of black narratives is being delivered.

    Thanks. I don't for a second believe they are walking from Ecuador. Google maps won't even calculate the drive from Quito to Guatemala City, let alone the walk. Walking from Quito to Medellin, Colombia they have listed at 235 hours. The migrants are either paying smugglers or the governments are shuttling them onto the next country or some combination of the two. Also, why would they walk to Tijuana, it over a thousand miles out of their way. Someone on foot, who just wants to make it to U.S. soil would head for McAllen or Brownsville, Texas. Most of this trip is at much higher altitudes than the average resident of Cameroon would be used to as well. The largest city is barely above sea level, the capital is at 2,300 ft. Yet our "free and objective press" just keeps reporting this garbage uncritically.

    "They walk from Ecuador to the US border?" Most likely they take the bus. They may actually walk across the borders to avoid customs. That is the issue with the US border wall and why it is needed.

    At this point mandatory e-verify is probably the only policy that can be implemented.
    , @Menschmaschine

    They walk from Ecuador to the US border?
     
    The walking refers to "They walk for days in Panama through dense jungle" - there is a gap of about a 100 km in the Panamericana in the border area of Colombia and Panama. Since decades there is talk about closing it, but so far nothing has happened, primarily because Panama is concerned about undesirable stuff coming from Colombia like foot-and-mouth disease - or illegal immigration. Should the gap ever be closed, there will be almost certainly a massive increase in illegal immigration going to the USA.

    Household wealth is I assume highly dependent on house prices, which have risen dramatically thanks to dual-income families, immigration and laxer lending - all of which pushes prices up.

    Be interesting to see what the figures are like with house ownership removed - I'm sure the boomers will still be well on top because they started their careers before the great divergence around 1970, when real male wages reached their highest level.

    And democrats will take control because of 54 years and 60 million-plus immigrants that came here after people were told “it’s not that much.”

    BTW, it’s nice for Steve to post subjects like this. However, we are probably past the time when just talking about it will do any good. I am not implying anything violent.

    But I have to admire folks on the other side who go after something and won’t let up. I’m thinking about the guys who protested and hounded that chicken restaurant until they caved. I’m thinking about the people who succeeded in redefining the concept of marriage in less than two decades. I’m thinking about the people who have rewritten American history into something unrecognizable to people from a quarter century ago.

    There are tons of other examples of fringe types who wouldn’t let go until they had pushed their vision onto us all. Meanwhile, the overwhelming majority of us (I included) have really done nothing when it comes to the mass immigration issue despite our understanding of the dangers it poses. Except for a few minuteman types, the overwhelming majority did nothing.

    If the Japanese, Chinese, and Cubans gang up on us, they might pull it off– it’s only 50 mi to Cuba, and another 90 thence to Key West, after about 500 mi of Cuban road. The need for mile-deep stanchions in the Windward Passage poses an obstacle, though.

    …overall times are pretty good, relatively speaking. For example, construction of a colossal hydroelectric dam on the Blue Nile is proceeding.

    And a new Chinese-built rail link to Djibouti, now that the country is landlocked. They can thumb their noses at Eritrea. (Which means “red” in Greek, by the way. As in sea. But then “Africa” itself is Greek.)

    Ethiopia may be doing well as a hole whole, but there are frustrated minorities such as Oromo and Somalis who still will want to leave.

    Incidentally, a new book by Canadians Darrell Bricker and John Ibbitson predicts population collapse not only in developed countries but in most developing ones as well. They claim migration will peter out soon enough, and we will be begging for warm bodies to care for our old.

    This is much better researched and sourced than most books of this kind, and really could use an iSteve review.

    Empty Planet: THE SHOCK OF GLOBAL POPULATION DECLINE

  27. Speaking of African-Hispanic relations, I would like to report a microaggression.

    A few minutes ago, I was at a train station, getting on an elevator. Standing next to me was a tiny older Hispanic woman with a bicycle.

    As the elevator was about to ascend, the doors opened again, revealing a well-dressed fiftysomething black woman. She hesitated. I motioned for her to get on.

    She shook her head. “Unh-unh. I’m not riding with Miss Ecuador-Face or someone from…” – she glared at me as the doors closed – “…Nebraska.”

    Miss Ecuador-Face chuckled as we departed.

    So should I alert CNN, or what?

    5800 is not that much,
     
    That's the attitude that leads to so many problems.

    this stuff won’t matter after Trump leaves office anyway, since once the democrats take permanent control of America, they will let in as many africans as they can.
     
    And democrats will take control because of 54 years and 60 million-plus immigrants that came here after people were told "it's not that much."

    BTW, it's nice for Steve to post subjects like this. However, we are probably past the time when just talking about it will do any good. I am not implying anything violent.

    But I have to admire folks on the other side who go after something and won't let up. I'm thinking about the guys who protested and hounded that chicken restaurant until they caved. I'm thinking about the people who succeeded in redefining the concept of marriage in less than two decades. I'm thinking about the people who have rewritten American history into something unrecognizable to people from a quarter century ago.

    There are tons of other examples of fringe types who wouldn't let go until they had pushed their vision onto us all. Meanwhile, the overwhelming majority of us (I included) have really done nothing when it comes to the mass immigration issue despite our understanding of the dangers it poses. Except for a few minuteman types, the overwhelming majority did nothing.

    I am not implying that we could have won, but it would have been nice to have put up a political or economic fight. Instead we lost by forfeit.

  29. For African migrants trying, and dying, to reach north America, the Darién Gap is the “new Mediterranean”, by Shola Lawal, a Nigeria-based freelance journalist and filmmaker covering social justice and environmental issues across west Africa. Published in woke Equal Times, 09 Dec.

    “As a result of tough migration policies in traditional destination countries in Europe, Basame is one of thousands of so-called‘extracontinental migrants’ taking the desperate decision to try and traverse the American continent in the hope of seeking asylum in the United States or Canada. In previous times this route was used almost exclusively by central American migrants. More recently it has seen a surge in migrants from African countries like Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Eritrea, Mauritania, Nigeria, Ghana and Burkina Faso, as well as people from Asian and Middle Eastern countries such as India, Pakistan, Syria and Nepal. Mexico authorities apprehended around 3,000 Africans and some 12,000 extracontinental migrants in total in 2018, according to the Migrant Policy Unit of Mexico’s Interior Ministry

    Basame arrived in Mexico five months ago, but like thousands of others, he is trapped in Tapachula, a city on the border with Guatemala in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas. These migrants and refugees are caught in the net of new US immigration regulations designed to stop irregular migration, a key feature of President Donald Trump’s administration … For now, Basame is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Even if he had the money, it would be too dangerous for him to go home, and yet he currently has no way out of Mexico. As he struggles to stay afloat, his hopes are fading fast. “I’m running out of cash and I’m running out of patience. I’m sick and I don’t have anywhere to live,” he says. “How will I survive?”

    The answer to this is simple. The U.S. needs to adopt the same 'first border' standard used by other nations. One cannot claim refugee status in the U.S. until all 'closer' to home options have been exhausted. So, an African would have to apply for and be denied in 50-100 nations before they could even try for a U.S. claim.

    PEACE 😇

    Absolutely. This is the international standard. Refugees are required to accept asylum at the first safe place they reach. Otherwise they are just shopping for where they want to live.

    Problem is black problems really came to the fore since the mid-60s. Sure, blacks were problematic before but kept under wraps by rational white race-ism. Blacks really went nuts in the 60s with the decline in the crucial race-ism, the real heart and soul of America. No doubt race-ism has had a dark side, but it was also an essential factor in the development of America. It's like fire. It's dangerous but also crucial to civilization(and nature).
    So, when white remember most of US history, they see it as whites oppressing blacks, not blacks giving trouble to whites. Also, people know of history and reality only through the media and academia, and those are controlled by Jews and Progs. Jews push 'white guilt' to paralyze white pride/will, and white Progs love to feel holier-than-thou by sermonizing about Magic Negro, their new religion. As white progs in ivory towers tend to live apart from bad blacks, their idea of Negroes come from media, Hollywood, and association with educated blacks.
    Not only do the media suppress black crime/pathologies but Hollywood endlessly generates Noble Negro and evil KKK narratives.

    Also, there is the pleasure factor. Too many whites get thrills from black sports and boogie to black music. To them, blacks are the demigods of badassery. And there is Jungle Fever. Sure, blacks are destructive, but people addicted to pleasure become blind to all else. So many Americans know drugs are bad but indulge in them just the same because it feels good. So many Americans know sugar is bad, but they just love the sweets and keep gorging on sugary foods and become obese.
    Same thing with Black Sugar.

    And in a way, mass immigration's one positive outcome has been keeping black population at 13%. Had there been no mass-immigration, what would the black percentage of US be now? 30%?

    That is from a WaPo article:
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/12/03/precariousness-modern-young-adulthood-one-chart/
    based on this tweet:
    https://twitter.com/graykimbrough/status/1198703644721524744

    That graphic seems like a fail to me. First, the raw data includes the silent generation and earlier (born before 1946):
    https://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/z1/dataviz/dfa/distribute/table/#quarter:119;series:Net%20worth;demographic:generation;population:all;units:shares
    Adding them in would help give a sense of a typical progression as one generation passed its wealth on to the next.

    As an example, if we assume the silent generation was 1925-1945 making the median year 1935 they turned 60 in 1993 with them and the older generations holding 70.9% of wealth. When the median boomer (1955) turned 60 in 2015 they held 55.1% of the wealth with their elders holding 27.3% for a total of 82.4% (compare 70.9%). 45 would be another good year to check given the median Gen Xer has passed that. As would 30 given the median Millenial has passed that.

    They also have an age version of that data (70+, 55-69, 40-54, Under 40). Under 40s as a group have about half the relative wealth in 2019 as they did in 1989.

    Second is the more serious issue. Per capita, it's not just about crime statistics. The WaPo at least acknowledges this point, unlike the original tweet.

    Longer life expectancy, boomers live longer so the wealth hasn’t been passed on yet. Richest fella I know from school his parents both died from cancer before he hit his early twenties. Inheritance is the biggest wealth transfer between generations.

    Not just the first world, it will spill over everywhere. Just check the 'travel' (Read: Emigration) section of Nairaland. Nowhere is safe.

    https://www.nairaland.com/travel

    This documentary is from 9 years ago. It deals with African asylum seekers in Argentina. My favourite part is the matter-of-fact delivery of the line "Generally recognised as the whitest country in Latin American, it has even been said that Argentina is more racially European than immigrant-saturated Europe." Everything restates the patterns you see over and over.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPh_iASSw30

    There's plenty of others, such as those dealing with the Nigerians hustlin' in Moscow. It follows a familiar pattern for Nigerian settlement, becoming established through universities and student visas before the inflows of the others. A non-trivial number of Nigerians established themselves in Poland through this.

    I studied abroad in Poland in the early noughties. You could actually identify individually the five or so blacks you would see out and about in Warsaw. I went back a couple of years ago, a noticeable increase in Africans and I could sense the bridgehead had been established and the dysfunction Africans bring was just starting. Soon every Polish public policy question will be framed by the need to mitigate the damage they do.

    Actually the graph makes no real sense.

    How many boomers have this kind of wealth?

    How many boomers have any kind of wealth?

    Did the graph factor in the fact that “boomer” is a slippery-sloppy term that includes Yuppies, no doubt over represented on the graph, and Gen-Out, tens of millions of downsized workers who made corporations rich when their work went to China, Mexico, (etc.), and are no doubt not on any current graphs because they died early or will work crap jobs till they die?

    Does the graph in any way allude to the inter-generational work inequity, such as over half of boomers for reasons already cited will never retire, or going further back, the USA now has a record number of worker over 85 who cannot afford to retire? (Paul Craig Roberts links to an article on this subject at one of his columns.)

    “They walk from Ecuador to the US border?” Most likely they take the bus. They may actually walk across the borders to avoid customs. That is the issue with the US border wall and why it is needed.

    If this - the most brute, basic, obvious 'in your face' lesson that life can teach you, more basic than fire hurts your hand, is seemingly ineducable to the American establishment, then white Americans - deservedly - will go the way of the Passenger Pigeon. Absolutely no doubt about it.

    The walking refers to “They walk for days in Panama through dense jungle” – there is a gap of about a 100 km in the Panamericana in the border area of Colombia and Panama. Since decades there is talk about closing it, but so far nothing has happened, primarily because Panama is concerned about undesirable stuff coming from Colombia like foot-and-mouth disease – or illegal immigration. Should the gap ever be closed, there will be almost certainly a massive increase in illegal immigration going to the USA.

    That is from a WaPo article:
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/12/03/precariousness-modern-young-adulthood-one-chart/
    based on this tweet:
    https://twitter.com/graykimbrough/status/1198703644721524744

    That graphic seems like a fail to me. First, the raw data includes the silent generation and earlier (born before 1946):
    https://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/z1/dataviz/dfa/distribute/table/#quarter:119;series:Net%20worth;demographic:generation;population:all;units:shares
    Adding them in would help give a sense of a typical progression as one generation passed its wealth on to the next.

    As an example, if we assume the silent generation was 1925-1945 making the median year 1935 they turned 60 in 1993 with them and the older generations holding 70.9% of wealth. When the median boomer (1955) turned 60 in 2015 they held 55.1% of the wealth with their elders holding 27.3% for a total of 82.4% (compare 70.9%). 45 would be another good year to check given the median Gen Xer has passed that. As would 30 given the median Millenial has passed that.

    They also have an age version of that data (70+, 55-69, 40-54, Under 40). Under 40s as a group have about half the relative wealth in 2019 as they did in 1989.

    Second is the more serious issue. Per capita, it's not just about crime statistics. The WaPo at least acknowledges this point, unlike the original tweet.

    Household wealth is I assume highly dependent on house prices, which have risen dramatically thanks to dual-income families, immigration and laxer lending – all of which pushes prices up.

    Be interesting to see what the figures are like with house ownership removed – I’m sure the boomers will still be well on top because they started their careers before the great divergence around 1970, when real male wages reached their highest level.

    Illegal immigration cuts both ways for blacks. For those blacks who want to work it reduces their pay and benefits. For those blacks who don’t want to work it removes all pressure for them to do so, since gaps in the labor market are filled by unskilled immigrants. Absent the migrants we might put more pressure on them to work by removing incentives (i.e., welfare) for them not to.

    And of course we’re only able to pay the bill for all this welfare because we just put it all on the national credit card.

    Gateway 2000 started out in Ted Waitt's grandparents' barn and primary assembly facilities were in the general area of Sioux City, in locations in the three adjacent states. Primary business locations were assembly and warehouse , sales and tech support call centers (they were there, plus Kansas City Kansas/Missouri-the state line went down the center of the hall but most of it was in a former meatpacking plant just on the Missouri side, plus Rio Rancho New Mexico and one somewhere in Minnesota) and later the numerous Country Stores in prime retail spots throughout the US. Corporate HQ was moved from the Sioux City location to Poway, California and then Lake Forest, CA, or maybe vice versa-this may have been around the time Ted Waitt was fucking Ghislaine Maxwell and she was grooming him to move up in the world, so to speak.

    The laptops were repaired at a contractor facility in Texas.

    Gateway proper manufactured absolutely nothing, everything was made by Asian OEM vendors except the Destination monitor which was an OEM Zenith product. They did design the ALR server hardware inhouse but of course boards were made and stuffed overseas. Other than that all engineering proper was Asian or done by contract design houses.

    Basically, Gateway was nothing more nor less than a really big white box computer shop. Waitt's idea was that if the box had cow spots it would give him a value add over mom and pop whitebox operators, fueled by a big ad budget. Waitt was a doofus propelled by circumstance into running an outfit with thirty thousand earnest if usually naive employees and billions in real estate and physical plant.

    The ads were cheesy as hell, but they worked. At least for a while.

We need to shut our borders. The only way we could remove the incentive for migration would be to let our countries degenerate to Third World levels, i.e. let immigration continue indefinitely.

    At this point it's easier to just let go of the US wholesale, let all the nonwhites from all over incl. Europe come in to worship at the feet of their Jew masters, while all white gentiles move back to Europe.

    Unfortunately, portions of Europe (U.K., Sweden and possibly France) are approximately as hopeless as the United States. Poland and Hungary appear to be the holdouts.

  96. Since MY granddaddy didn’t get on that boat, I will. The TransAtlantic Serf Trade of the 21st century.

  97. As a result, thousands of migrants fleeing from civil wars and ethnic conflicts [in Africa] are stuck

    54 Sovereign African nations (after they kicked the Europeans out), and 11.7 million square miles of land (over three times as large as the United States) yet these so-called refugees can’t find a single other nation in Africa to choose from.

    If it’s really true that there’s no safe place in Africa for them to go to then it’s time the civilized world began a serious conversation about what the hell to do about Africa. I’m happy to start that conversation by noting that bringing them here is NOT the solution.

    No one cares what American Negroes want.
     
    Au contraire, much of public life is given over to the care and feeding of the American Negro.

    The calculation has been made that immigration damages YT more than Blacks, so all is good.

    Au contraire, much of public life is given over to the care and feeding of the American Negro. The calculation has been made that immigration damages YT more than Blacks, so all is good.

    Illegal immigration cuts both ways for blacks. For those blacks who want to work it reduces their pay and benefits. For those blacks who don’t want to work it removes all pressure for them to do so, since gaps in the labor market are filled by unskilled immigrants. Absent the migrants we might put more pressure on them to work by removing incentives (i.e., welfare) for them not to.

    And of course we’re only able to pay the bill for all this welfare because we just put it all on the national credit card.

    After the terrible experience of living alongside black Africans for nigh on 400 years, one would have thought that Americans were wise to their character and behavior - and would do absolutely anything and everything in their power to keep another influx out.

    If this - the most brute, basic, obvious 'in your face' lesson that life can teach you, more basic than fire hurts your hand, is seemingly ineducable to the American establishment, then white Americans - deservedly - will go the way of the Passenger Pigeon. Absolutely no doubt about it.

    After the terrible experience of living alongside black Africans for nigh on 400 years, one would have thought that Americans were wise to their character and behavior… If this… brute, basic, obvious ‘in your face’ lesson… is seemingly ineducable to the American establishment, then white Americans – deservedly – will go the way of the Passenger Pigeon.

    Problem is black problems really came to the fore since the mid-60s. Sure, blacks were problematic before but kept under wraps by rational white race-ism. Blacks really went nuts in the 60s with the decline in the crucial race-ism, the real heart and soul of America. No doubt race-ism has had a dark side, but it was also an essential factor in the development of America. It’s like fire. It’s dangerous but also crucial to civilization(and nature).
    So, when white remember most of US history, they see it as whites oppressing blacks, not blacks giving trouble to whites. Also, people know of history and reality only through the media and academia, and those are controlled by Jews and Progs. Jews push ‘white guilt’ to paralyze white pride/will, and white Progs love to feel holier-than-thou by sermonizing about Magic Negro, their new religion. As white progs in ivory towers tend to live apart from bad blacks, their idea of Negroes come from media, Hollywood, and association with educated blacks.
    Not only do the media suppress black crime/pathologies but Hollywood endlessly generates Noble Negro and evil KKK narratives.

    Also, there is the pleasure factor. Too many whites get thrills from black sports and boogie to black music. To them, blacks are the demigods of badassery. And there is Jungle Fever. Sure, blacks are destructive, but people addicted to pleasure become blind to all else. So many Americans know drugs are bad but indulge in them just the same because it feels good. So many Americans know sugar is bad, but they just love the sweets and keep gorging on sugary foods and become obese.
    Same thing with Black Sugar.

    And in a way, mass immigration’s one positive outcome has been keeping black population at 13%. Had there been no mass-immigration, what would the black percentage of US be now? 30%?

    Nebraska? I hear it's a great place to be from.

    I use that same joke about my birthplace of Iowa. Only about half my relatives understand it's underlying negative connotation. In reality, being from the Midwest is a fantastic heritage. General American accent, good work ethic, intact families, etc.

    Ironically, aside from airport layovers, I’ve never even been to the Midwest.

  102. The number of African migrants heading to the U.S. through Mexico has more than doubled this year — from roughly 2,700 in 2018 to 5,800 today, according to data from the federal government.

    This is very bad–the Africans have caught on to our weakness.

    It seems like a number of very big trends are ramping up, rushing us headlong into a very uncertain chaotic future.

    — Minoritarianism seems to be reaching a fever pitch–actually an insane pitch–with the “wokeness” of the last few years. Outright, unabashed insanity like these trannies in women’s sports. Anti-whiteness building everyday (“the smirk”). Anti-rationalism and feminine hysteria thick filling our media and culture.

    And this has resulted in the natural endpoint of minoritarianism–denial of any right for a majority to protect itself. The woke feminine hysteria leading the Democrats to call for what is effectively Open Borders–anyone from anywhere that sucks can show up, claim asylum and will never be deported and eventually legalized.

    — Africa is spilling out. Its birthrates while reduced are still high and its population soaring. And Africans have realized the West hasn’t the will to stop them invading and looting. Some have now figured out the weakness of America and are exploiting it.

    — The Chinese are here. The Chinese leadership has really done a slapdash, mediocre job across a range of issues (including their own demographics). But compared to Western silliness, the look like statesmen for the ages. China for all it’s problems has risen and is a world power with a comparable economy to the US … and is not “woke” and not “nation of immigrants”ing itself into idiocy.

    — The automation revolution is rolling down the tracks. The disruption to labor markets–and ergo the disruption to economics, politics, society is going to be shattering.

    — The genetic and with it the general biomedical revolutions are hurtling toward us. The ability to select and change germ line DNA and to have radical better health, delayed aging, etc. etc. will radically alter human life and society.

    All these huge trends are rushing toward us–and each other–producing a potential a socio-cultural-economic-demographic revolution of unprecedented proportions … but one whose character is essentially unknown.

    We could–and it sure looks like–we are rushing headlong into the demographic–and cultural and economic–destruction of the West, driven by the sheer silliness of minoritarianism and the destruction of rationality that accompanies it. But it is not impossible that as these other waves–and their foreboding import–start to become clear, that the men of the West will rally, push rationality back to the fore, destroy minoritarianism, take back their nations … and the technological trends will instead usher in a new golden age of prosperity.

    Yes, African populations are exploding.

    An another trend clear as day [that no one talks about] is how communication and transportation technology has encouraged and enabled migration at an unprecedented scale magnitudes above the past.

    Consider:
    - People in Africa can video call their relatives/friends in Germany/UK/Canada/USA for free and see all the gibs they get. In the past even phone calls were prohibitively expensive.
    - Airfares have dropped in real terms by 50% at least, and flights are far more widespread
    - Ubiquitous Internet/text/mobile phones mean information on how to invade unlawfully migrate is everywhere (including the sob story to tell on asylum applications)
    - Ubiquitous Internet/text/mobile phones mean it's easy to organize and for tikkun olam non-profits to guide migrants (including the sob story to tell on asylum applications)

    The Africans see the lifestyle, gibs and White women on the Internets. It compares quite favorably to their mud hut lifestyle. And they wants it now! Tens of millions, scores of millions, hundreds of millions will be coming.

    And why not? They know scraping/borrowing/stealing $15k to pay to a smuggler is a tiny price to pay for the return they'll get once ensconced in the land of the White Man.

    Not really. Gateway started out building computers in Asia like everyone else, but at some point they built what they called a "Configuration Center" in Tennessee where they would assemble computers to order - this was mostly for logistical reasons. Most PC components have been made in Asia for many decades now (the first IBM compatible PC that I owned was a Daewoo made in Korea - this was the mid-80s). Assembling a bunch of made in Asia components into a computer is something that you can do on your kitchen table with only a screwdriver so calling that kind of assembly "manufacturing" is a stretch.

    Nowadays, with online ordering and air freight, the big US manufacturers can do the same kind of customization in their factories in China and it only adds a maybe 1 day to the process. I once ordered a customized laptop from HP and was able to track it from the factory in Shanghai to landing in Indianapolis which was less than 24 hours after it left the factory door. Once they unload the airfreight container in Indianapolis, all the boxes are pre-labeled with the the customer address and just get dumped into the regular domestic Fedex package stream.

    Gateway 2000 started out in Ted Waitt’s grandparents’ barn and primary assembly facilities were in the general area of Sioux City, in locations in the three adjacent states. Primary business locations were assembly and warehouse , sales and tech support call centers (they were there, plus Kansas City Kansas/Missouri-the state line went down the center of the hall but most of it was in a former meatpacking plant just on the Missouri side, plus Rio Rancho New Mexico and one somewhere in Minnesota) and later the numerous Country Stores in prime retail spots throughout the US. Corporate HQ was moved from the Sioux City location to Poway, California and then Lake Forest, CA, or maybe vice versa-this may have been around the time Ted Waitt was fucking Ghislaine Maxwell and she was grooming him to move up in the world, so to speak.

    The laptops were repaired at a contractor facility in Texas.

    Gateway proper manufactured absolutely nothing, everything was made by Asian OEM vendors except the Destination monitor which was an OEM Zenith product. They did design the ALR server hardware inhouse but of course boards were made and stuffed overseas. Other than that all engineering proper was Asian or done by contract design houses.

    Basically, Gateway was nothing more nor less than a really big white box computer shop. Waitt’s idea was that if the box had cow spots it would give him a value add over mom and pop whitebox operators, fueled by a big ad budget. Waitt was a doofus propelled by circumstance into running an outfit with thirty thousand earnest if usually naive employees and billions in real estate and physical plant.

    Not just the first world, it will spill over everywhere. Just check the 'travel' (Read: Emigration) section of Nairaland. Nowhere is safe.

    https://www.nairaland.com/travel

    This documentary is from 9 years ago. It deals with African asylum seekers in Argentina. My favourite part is the matter-of-fact delivery of the line "Generally recognised as the whitest country in Latin American, it has even been said that Argentina is more racially European than immigrant-saturated Europe." Everything restates the patterns you see over and over.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPh_iASSw30

    There's plenty of others, such as those dealing with the Nigerians hustlin' in Moscow. It follows a familiar pattern for Nigerian settlement, becoming established through universities and student visas before the inflows of the others. A non-trivial number of Nigerians established themselves in Poland through this.

    Wow. Probably shouldn’t have, but I spent an hour reading their stories. We are well and truly wrecked. The world is their oyster, but especially the US and UK. Our countries prostitute themselves for these migrants. And there are going to be billions of them. Someone tell me how this will sort out well? We’re all going to be like Africa.

    On the bright side, less profanity among the nigerians. Maybe migrants are better after all.

    SO MANY American colleges offer “full funding” for african and asian migrants, but not to US students.

    This is exactly the opposite of what our MSM say. I think it’s because they’re working their diversity percentages, and Nigerian expats tend to be smarter (and especially harder working) than domestic thugs & hos.

    When the opposition maintains a complete stranglehold on the means of communication, they can decide what truth is. That’s total power, and they like that. Thus even the little bit of freedom we’re currently enjoying in this very forum has its days numbered.

    The Left is 100% correct about one thing – race does matter. In fact, it’s all that matters.

    It’s ok for Blacks/Hispanics/Asians to care more about Blacks/Hispanics/Asians than other races.

    “We have jobs.” – -John O’Sullivan
     
    It's catchy, but I doubt it accounts for the lack of fight. Perhaps some would fear losing their job over being seen at an unpopular public event. But how would that affect whether or not one chooses to engage in an economic boycott? Having a job, a good one, just means you have more economic clout at your disposal. And choosing to refrain from spending on bad things is pretty much an anonymous activity.

Many have mentioned Paco and Taco, their trusty gardeners, tenants, and employees.

    Intelligent Dasein and I (perhaps a few others I am overlooking) have pointed out the preposterous incongruity of it all to deafening silence. Your voice, added in, will doubtless prove equally unmoving to them – only just think how much more oblivious and unbothered the great masses of normie sheeple are, given the relatively perspicacious lot who read this blog.

    The best lack all conviction, indeed; and the people get the government they deserve.

    Beer, sportsball, pornography, teevee, muh ethnic food, muh million-dollar house… – none of them give a shit about anything worth giving a shit about. Certainly not their own descendants, which is the measure of all. The zombie apocalypse is a fait accompli, and has been for years. You ever see George Romero’s Day of the Dead (1985)? Any effort at change now is as futile as were those of Dr. Matthew “Frankenstein” Logan’s deluded and hopeless efforts to communicate with and civilise the zombies in that film. These people wanna talk about how great The Irishman is, not how much money they are paying for the propaganda to destroy their children’s patrimony.
