The New York Times Editorial Board thunders:

The Truth of ‘Black Lives Matter’

By THE EDITORIAL BOARD

Efforts to portray the movement as inflammatory or anti-white ignore the long history of racism and violence against blacks in America.

Obviously, that’s a non sequitur, but that’s how the conventional wisdom works these days: when you point out that the rhetoric of the Obama Administration, the NYT, the Soros funds and so forth is getting people, white and black, killed, you get in reply a lecture on white racism generations ago.

The mainstream media are becoming increasingly hazy on which direction time flows.

  1. Seem then MTV is also living in the past from what I saw from this video from Paul Joseph Watson who’s right on target.

    And I spotted that video of white woman who are getting fed up.

  2. The other problem with focussing on the Obama Era is, as the NY Times reported yesterday, low-income Americans are worse off today than they were when Obama took office: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/03/business/low-income-workers-see-biggest-drop-in-paychecks.html?_r=0

  3. …that’s how the conventional wisdom works these days: when you point out that the rhetoric of the Obama Administration, the NYT, the Soros funds and so forth is getting people, white and black, killed, and in reply you get a lecture on white racism generations ago.

    Recently, Huffington Post treated us to a seventy year old sob story concerning Diahann Carroll and her mother getting the brush off from a train conductor in DC (surely a mistake – not deepest Mississippi?) Never mind the sterling career and five star treatment through most of her adult life (thanks to the patronage of white men) – no, we must never forget a train conductor telling her to sit somewhere else when she was ten.

  4. In the minds of the progressive left we are always in one crisis or another, which is a necessary precondition to justify the latest proposed legislative or regulatory power grab against whomever it is fashionable to beat up on at the moment.

    The line above reminded me – unfortunately, since I dearly would like to forget – of the tendency of Ta-Nehisi Coates to use the same trick in essentially every article on race he has ever written. I have lost count of the number of Atlantic articles where he references racist actions dating 100 or more years in the past as prima facie evidence of modern American white racism.

    It can’t be repeated enough that the number of black deaths at the hands of law enforcement is a rounding error when compared to the annual body count racked up by black on black violence. As an another iSteve commenter pointed out a few weeks ago, for the left it’s always a question of how society at large is failing or harming blacks, rather than an examination of the disturbingly large percentage of blacks that are failing at society’s most basic expectations.

  5. The Obama Years:

    Wages – down.
    Budget deficits – way up.
    Homelessness – way way up.
    Middle East – in flames.
    Food costs – way up.
    Test scores – down.
    Murders – up

    It’s like livin’ in a dream…

    Such as the extreme example Bryce Williams, crazy and stupid, seizes on the Narrative and acts out; media steps in, explains his behavior naturally follows from slavery, Jim Crow, etc (indeed, his behavior is really our own fault–blowback); and a thousand more fools are radicalized and handed a rationalization both for their own failures and the ensuing actions their latent bigotry is already encouraging.

    That's exactly how I've been reading our "racist past" recently. It's amazing to read the accounts of whites from the 19th century and early 20th century about blacks.

    The crime, the off the handle behavior, shiftiness. They even knew enough about blacks to know not all conducted themselves in such a manner but that it was best for all to be apart.

    I've begrudgingly come to the conclusion that Jim Crow was a response to observed behavior.

  7. stop and frisk

  8. Priss Factor [AKA "skiapolemistis"] says:

    “Efforts to portray the movement as inflammatory or anti-white ignore the long history of racism and violence against blacks in America.”

    Funny. When Russians say Russian Values Matter, NYT ignores the tremendous amount of violence done to Russkies by Jews(as communists) and Germans(as Nazis) did in the 20th century.

    Also, we all know that black lives are mostly killed by other black lives but.. I’m so tired repeating it..

  9. What blacks and their white enablers fail to realize–well, they know it, but they also know that they can never admit it!–is that most of what is called racism today is simply routine workplace friction. All workplaces are dysfunctional to some degree or other: clique, cabals, coups and plots, grudges, resentments, sometimes outright hatreds for pinpricks to the vanity ten years ago, the lazy, the connected, the dreamers, the quitters, the guy who goes to the bathroom twice an hour. On top of that, everyone on the floor knows exactly who is producing and who is not, who is all talk and who all walk. SO: snark, snaps, curt nods, unreturned waves or eye contact or too intensely returned waves or eye contact, perfume, cologne, body odor, halitosis, unchanged socks, nerd shoes, filthy glasses or fingernails, garlicky Chinese for lunch . . . whatever. It’s all goes in a ledger that in good times is never opened and in bad never closed. All white, yellow and hispanic people realize this and get along with business. All black people, honed to see disrespect in every gesture and micro-grimace, think it’s for-real and that it’s racist. Thus very little work gets done, and black people simmer and brood and occasionally, like Omar or “Bryce”, go to guns. Black people: YOU CAN DO BETTER! GET OVER YOURSELVES!

    When Trump was in Alabama, Dave Weigel, a reporter for the Washington Post, tweeted a transcript of a convo he had with a farmer in Alabama.

    The farmer said something to the effect of 'growing up we were taught that they're ni***rs and there are black people'.

    Of course most folks went ballistic about his use of n-word, while missing how instead of condemning all blacks he knew enough about them to distinguish between a horribly behaved underclass and other blacks.

    The Southern white due to proximity has been at the forefront of race relations in this country. It's ironic that their opinions are now ignored or condemned.

    The illegal immigrant wave peaked around 2006, at the peak of the economic bubble. At that time something like 10% of all births in the US were to illegal immigrants. They've declined since, thanks to the Great Recession, some illegals going home, and a general decline in Hispanic birthrates.

    What does that mean? It means you can expect to see SAT scores continue to fall until somewhere around 2024-26, after which they'll maybe improve for a couple of years.

    Mark your calendars for September of 2024, and then in 2028, and we'll see if my predictions were correct.

  20. I was talking with my wife tonight about Donald Trump and his appeal. She isn’t particularly politically aware, but even she remarked that the last 7 and a half years have seemingly made the racial problems in our country worse. Her reasoning was: well, maybe things were bad for black people 8 years ago, but their position certainly hasn’t improved, and at least people weren’t being murdered on live TV for being white.

    I’d like to think that normal, blue-pilled people are starting to catch on.

  21. The point is that America’s racial history is meant to be a perpetual, unresolvable Weight around the neck of American society. Unresolvable, unknowable, and never meant to be resolved, but intended, as needed, to push whatever agenda The New York Times Editorial Board and Carlos Slim desire. To be clear, this unwashable Mark of Cain just so happens to not apply to the writers of the Editorial Board or their foreign billionaire benefactor.

    Far from clear that this is the case. Deportations have dropped precipitously in Obama's second term, yet legal admission from Mexico is at an all time high. There is no reason why illegal entry would drop so much while legal entry is at an all time high.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/03/opinion/australias-brutal-treatment-of-migrants.html

    The NY Times condemns the “ruthlessly effective” (which I guess is now a bad thing) border controls in Australia. For some reason, such harsh language is never applied to Israel, of course, which sends its African migrants to Uganda and Sweden, and even Ethiopian Jews are forcefully injected with Depo-Provera long term birth control.

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/eliseknutsen/2013/01/28/israel-foribly-injected-african-immigrant-women-with-birth-control/

    Anyway, The New York Times reassuringly informs the reader the “world’s war zones are all but certain to continue to churn out an extraordinary number of refugees and economic migrants in the years ahead.”

    In other words, THIS is just the beginning of an ETERNAL flow of EXTRAORDINARY number of migrants and there is LITERALLY NOTHING that can be done about it; unless of course, you are Israel, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, United Arab Emirates; South Korea; Japan; Taiwan; Singapore; China; Mexico; all of Africa and all of South America…

    Boy did you hit the nail on the head.

    Now that the press has nearly succeeded in replacing the term "alien" with "immigrant" in the public consciousness, the press has moved on to blurring the distinction between "immigrant" and "refugee".

    "It's inevitible! We MUST save the REFUGEES! They're REFUGEES you cold-hearted numbskull - they're of such elevated status and need compared to your own citizens!"

    So this is how the war is brought home and a new homeostasis is established. Endless exploits overseas and PunkNations MUST take in REFUGEES due to Guilt.

    I've always suspected one reason white people so readily accept the environmental explanation for disparities in black behavior is not just that it dodges the "racist" genetic explanation, but that it flatters them to think that, if only they had been hardened by the hood (or white oppression) and steeped in its culture, they too might demonstrate greater sexual prowess, soul, toughness, etc.

    I was talking with my wife tonight about Donald Trump and his appeal. She isn't particularly politically aware, but even she remarked that the last 7 and a half years have seemingly made the racial problems in our country worse. Her reasoning was: well, maybe things were bad for black people 8 years ago, but their position certainly hasn't improved, and at least people weren't being murdered on live TV for being white.

    I'd like to think that normal, blue-pilled people are starting to catch on.

    Yeah, my wife has never voted in any election and has no political bone in her body, however, she is really into this Trump campaign. I think this Republican primary will be her only vote in 50+ years on the planet. It’s going to be an interesting ride!

    It's worse than the NYT is even capable of understanding. The present illuminates the past much more than the past illuminates the present. The all-too-clear view we have of black behavior now explains the "racism" of segregationists in the distorted view we have of back then. It's also ironic that keeping that image of the past luridly alive in the minds of black Americans fuels black bigotry.
    Such as the extreme example Bryce Williams, crazy and stupid, seizes on the Narrative and acts out; media steps in, explains his behavior naturally follows from slavery, Jim Crow, etc (indeed, his behavior is really our own fault--blowback); and a thousand more fools are radicalized and handed a rationalization both for their own failures and the ensuing actions their latent bigotry is already encouraging. Rinse and repeat.

    That’s exactly how I’ve been reading our “racist past” recently. It’s amazing to read the accounts of whites from the 19th century and early 20th century about blacks.

    The crime, the off the handle behavior, shiftiness. They even knew enough about blacks to know not all conducted themselves in such a manner but that it was best for all to be apart.

    I’ve begrudgingly come to the conclusion that Jim Crow was a response to observed behavior.

    White Southern segregationists in the '50's and '60's tried to warn us that this social experiment wouldn't work. From hindsight their warnings made more sense than all the preposterous propaganda we see now intended to excuse black behavior in the current, observable world.

    When Trump was in Alabama, Dave Weigel, a reporter for the Washington Post, tweeted a transcript of a convo he had with a farmer in Alabama.

    The farmer said something to the effect of ‘growing up we were taught that they’re ni***rs and there are black people’.

    Of course most folks went ballistic about his use of n-word, while missing how instead of condemning all blacks he knew enough about them to distinguish between a horribly behaved underclass and other blacks.

    The Southern white due to proximity has been at the forefront of race relations in this country. It’s ironic that their opinions are now ignored or condemned.

    How much of this nonsense is homoerotic attraction too strong, racially assertive, whites of yesteryear?

    Whites are so p****ywhipped and afraid of everybody nowadays that maybe these violent whites are a turn on. It's like being attracted to a bad boy from the dark primitive past.

    Replies: @Steve Sailer, @Dennis Dale

    I’ve always suspected one reason white people so readily accept the environmental explanation for disparities in black behavior is not just that it dodges the “racist” genetic explanation, but that it flatters them to think that, if only they had been hardened by the hood (or white oppression) and steeped in its culture, they too might demonstrate greater sexual prowess, soul, toughness, etc.
    The deeper you delve into this question, the worse we all look.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/03/opinion/australias-brutal-treatment-of-migrants.html

    The NY Times condemns the "ruthlessly effective" (which I guess is now a bad thing) border controls in Australia. For some reason, such harsh language is never applied to Israel, of course, which sends its African migrants to Uganda and Sweden, and even Ethiopian Jews are forcefully injected with Depo-Provera long term birth control.

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/eliseknutsen/2013/01/28/israel-foribly-injected-african-immigrant-women-with-birth-control/

    Anyway, The New York Times reassuringly informs the reader the "world’s war zones are all but certain to continue to churn out an extraordinary number of refugees and economic migrants in the years ahead."

    In other words, THIS is just the beginning of an ETERNAL flow of EXTRAORDINARY number of migrants and there is LITERALLY NOTHING that can be done about it; unless of course, you are Israel, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, United Arab Emirates; South Korea; Japan; Taiwan; Singapore; China; Mexico; all of Africa and all of South America...

    Boy did you hit the nail on the head.

    Now that the press has nearly succeeded in replacing the term “alien” with “immigrant” in the public consciousness, the press has moved on to blurring the distinction between “immigrant” and “refugee”.

    “It’s inevitible! We MUST save the REFUGEES! They’re REFUGEES you cold-hearted numbskull – they’re of such elevated status and need compared to your own citizens!”

    So this is how the war is brought home and a new homeostasis is established. Endless exploits overseas and PunkNations MUST take in REFUGEES due to Guilt.

    There is some finite number of Youtube videos that fully embed in each comment thread, and it's some kind of first come first serve. I think the number is currently 4. Embedded Youtube videos are great for people using fast broadband but slow things down for others. So, that's the current compromise, or it was recently.
