Sartorial Stands at the State of the Union
By TARIRO MZEZEWA JAN. 31, 2018

… But for my money the most powerful — and certainly most vibrant — protest was staged by members of the Congressional Black Caucus, who managed to repudiate the president’s despicable comments about Africa without uttering a word.

Kente cloth is native to Ghana but is worn by black people around the globe. The patterns in striking greens, purples and oranges often represent equality, power and love.

“Wearing kente cloth to the #SOTU with my fellow @OfficialCBC Members to stand in solidarity with people from you-know-what countries,” Representative Bobby Scott of Virginia tweeted, with a photo of himself in a kente tie.

As the camera panned the audience of dark suits, the kente cloth, worn by some representatives as ties and by others as shawls or scarves, was impossible to miss. And when the president boasted about the record lows of Latino and African-American unemployment, a trend that began under President Barack Obama, and said, “We stand for the national anthem” (read: The black athletes who don’t stand for the anthem aren’t true Americans), members of the black caucus stared out stone-faced. Others simply looked at their phones, uninterested and unengaged.

Many of these same representatives, along with other Democrats, also wore pins in honor of Recy Taylor, a black woman who was kidnapped and raped by six white men in 1944. Ms. Taylor’s attackers were never charged, and she died in December having never received justice. Ms. Taylor’s name, made famous by Oprah Winfrey’s mention of her at the Golden Globes, reminds many of the specific vulnerability of black women when it comes to sexual assault. The red pins, with “Recy” in white lettering, drove that message home on the eve of Black History Month.

And with that, welcome to Black History Month.

  1. specific vulnerability of black women when it comes to sexual assault.

    13% of sexual assaults involved by non-Hispanic black victims. So, no. In fact, blacks (and Hispanics) are slightly underrepresented per capita while whites are overrepresented. See: https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/sexual-assault-victims/

    Sixty-six percent of the incidents of rape and sexual assault included in the NCVS survey were reported by non-Hispanic white respondents, 15 percent were reported by Hispanic respondents, and 13 percent were reported non-Hispanic black respondents.4 That tracks fairly closely with the racial and ethnic breakdown in the U.S., which is 62 percent non-Hispanic white, 17 percent Hispanic and 12 percent non-Hispanic black (according to the Census Bureau).

    How could a group at the bottom of the racio-sexual hierarchy be most vulnerable? I mean, unless you stretch the meaning of assault to getting high, hanging at your cousin Ray-Ray's party, and saying "Whatever" as you fall asleep before the train pulls into the station.

    Wait, I forgot, sexual attraction has nothing to do with sexual assault, which is about power. If you believe sexual assault has anything to do with sex, you are for nature over nurture and a hair's-breadth away from sending people to gas chambers.

    Only in the sense that they tend to be around black men more often than are women of other races and suffer accordingly. Although given the opportunity White women are often the preferred target.

    And from what I remember Oprah claims to have been raped not by White men but by a black male relative.

    What we are seeing here is something Trump doesn't understand. "It isn't the economy stupid".

    It's about black identity and Jewish identity, Latino identity etc.

    Black identity in America involves the perpetual demonization of White America, a mythical pure african past, a fixation on white racism and black heroic achievement - inventing everything, putting people on the moon, etc - despite White Evil.

    That black identity is worth more than any job, tax cut, protecting borders from Mexican drug cartels, etc.

    It's a drug. Hating Whitey and seeing their black selves as innocence materialized is an addiction they can't quit.

    They are sending that message to Trump and all the other White conservative types who love to say..."But Democrats are the Real Racists!!"
    , @TheJester
    Glad to see that rape, at least, is an equal opportunity crime. It suggests that affirmative action and other radical social transformations can occasionally meet government objectives ... if the government returns our Constitutional right of association and lets social dynamics run their natural course.
    , @AnotherDad
    My guess is that black women are indeed significantly more likely to be raped (and be victims of other sexual assualt) than white women. I'd bet that black women underreport on NCVS even more than white women. And would be less likely to consider certain assaults to meet the bar of "sexual assault". (I think more of them reporting an assualt have suffered and actual rape, rather than a lesser offense, and that they are less likely to report in general.) What's the whole level of what's "normal" or at least common in black underclass communities--which contain a much larger percentage of blacks--is just different than white standards, even underclass white standards.

    That said, this victimization is essentially entirely from black men. Has nothing to do with us white guys. And the cross racial skew in rape, is literally orders of magnitude. (Based on the police report stats i'd put it at 3 to 4, >1000-to-1.)
  2. Blacks are virtually at war with browns and others (when they’re not busy with eachother), but up in Cloudcuckoo Land the Big Men display theoretical solidarity with potentially hostile huddled masses.

    The coalition is strong enough to withstand common sense, decency, self-interest, and general nonsense. At least until it isn’t.

    Yep, thanks for saying that, guest. I had heard that from girls who were proto-feminists back in the day and never believed it because my body knows more than a girl without the same parts does.

    As far as the black girls being more vulnerable, there is the supply side and the demand side. The former is high, and the latter is low.

    As Adam Carolla observed, "Rape is not a sexual crime. It is not sexual. Rape is a violent crime. It's a violent crime where you cum at the end. It's no different than if you robbed a liquor store and then came."
    , @unpc downunder
    The left pushes the rape is about power angle because they know most rapes are committed by lower class men with poor impulse control. They explain this trend by arguing that lower class men feel powerless and humiliated and are taking their frustration out on women in their social orbit. Hence, women's interests take second place to racial/class interests in modern feminism.

    In contrast, first-wave feminists were more concerned in controlling the behaviour of lower class men, which is why lots of early feminists were prohibitionists.

  4. I read somewhere that Melania’s dress was more symbolic. Because it was white, and Trump’s speech was about making America white again. If you didn’t listen to it and didn’t look at the guests he invited.

    Kente cloth has been worn in Ghana by rulers and since independence by commoners as well, and it has also become an important African-American cultural symbol, despite the fact that basically all slaves to the North America’s was sub-tribes sold by the Asante to the Arab Hausa and Mande slave traders.

    How come when whites want to talk about the ongoing criminal activity of minorities we get accused of promoting racial divisions but when minorities want to talk about a rape that supposedly happened in 1944 this is shown as a good thing?

    • Agree: David In TN
    • Replies: @Jack D
    They have to talk about a rape in 1944 because they couldn't find any more recent cases of white guys raping black women. I'm sure there are a few, but for statistical reporting purposes, the rate of white on black rape is effectively zero (especially if you don't count Latinos as whites). White dudes are just not interested in raping black women. Now that almost all black ghetto females are morbidly obese, they are even less attractive and they weren't that attractive to begin with.

    OTOH, black men raping white women IS a thing but it's a thing you are not allowed to talk about. Imagine if Republicans wore pins with the name of a white woman who was raped by a black guy? Oh, the horrible racism!

    But in the fantasy world of Democrats, evil white KKK guys just can't wait to rape themselves some beautiful black women.

How happy Oprah must've been when she came across this white male gentile (cant be too careful these days)atrocity. And Rosa Parks to boot! It reminds me of what Fearless Leader said about the rage-filled girls at the U of V when it was finally exposed that the Haven Monahan rape never occurred,and no girl ever crawled on broken glass;they were so... heartbroken. No rape? Not even a little one? Sob... I came across a bit of info on this one. It seems two grand juries sat for this case and neither indicted the boys. Racism? Might be,sure. It also seems this lady was involved in some fracas with the boys earlier. Anyone...anyone?

    With this sort of protest--picking (an alleged) white on black rape of all things--blacks are really plunging hard into the open, "F u whitey! You gonna sit and take our beating!" political line that we've seen from Jews--Brooks, Stevens, Rubin, etc. etc. etc.--this past year.

    It's the perps bitching about their nasty victims. It's not even trying to present an argument, but simply--and openly--celebrating their hatred/contempt for whitey and desire to grind him into the ground.

    Again, i think whites need to respond to this with one word "Separation?"

    Or in a few more words. "Ok, you hate us. Great. In that case, let's just separate."

    The plain fact is there's nothing white people need from blacks or Jews or Mexicans--nothing. We're perfectly capable of creating and running--really pretty darn wonderful!--nice nations on our own. (In fact--not to dismiss what the Japanese, Koreans or Israelis have done, ours and generally regarded as the best in the world, the ones other people want to come to.) Rather it's the reverse, these blacks and Jews and Mexicans need us around to get what they want. They just don't want us to have control. They want us passively around--available for looting. I.e. slaves.

    I think mentioning "separation" is important to clarify the issues at stake and what's really going on. Once that's idea is "out there" and whites are willing to say it, the amount of abuse we have to put up with should head way down and our political prospects head up.

    It's a wonder they ever expected any man to believe it, that is if feminists know anything about male sexual mechanics. Because I don't know about you, but I can't will myself an erection, plus maintain it for however long, simply because I feel like being powerful. It's not like a knife or a bat, which I can buy at a store and pick up at will.

    But as Theodore Dalrymple wrote, often these things aren't about persuasion, but humiliation. Forcing a man to say he believes rape is about power instead of sex is a sign of your power. You've dominated his mind, in opposition to readily apparent reality.

    With EEOC and the various boosters of Black participation in higher education came a real-life rape culture. But don’t blame White men for it..

    From wikipedia, Kente cloth originated in the Ahanti kingdom in Ghana.

    A quote from pbs.org from an article titled “Wonders: Ashanti Kingdom“:

    In exchange for guns and other European goods, the Ashanti sold gold and slaves, usually either captured in war or accepted as tribute from conquered peoples.

    During the 19th century, the Ashanti fought several wars with the British, who sought to eliminate the slave trade

    So much equality, power and love in Africa.

    I just finished the autobiography of Bruce Dickinson, the singer for Iron Maiden. I'm not really a fan of his band, but I've read about him in the past and he's a sort of Renaissance man: singer for one of the world's most popular metal bands, once the 7th ranked fencer in the UK, and a commercial airline pilot who flies the band and equipment around on tours in a converted 757.

    To get back on topic, he was piloting for Astraeus Airlines when they contracted to be the official airline of Ghana. After a while, it seemed like the Ghanaian government forgot about the monthly payments. Dickenson, just off tour, made the daily flight to Accra in the plane Iron Maiden used, with the logos and a representation of Eddie, the band's monster mascot, on the tail. Nobody would board the plane because of the bad juju! They used the plane again the next day, and the back billing was taken care of immediately.

    And this is one of the advanced nations in Africa.

    specific vulnerability of black women when it comes to sexual assault.
     
    13% of sexual assaults involved by non-Hispanic black victims. So, no. In fact, blacks (and Hispanics) are slightly underrepresented per capita while whites are overrepresented. See: https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/sexual-assault-victims/

    Sixty-six percent of the incidents of rape and sexual assault included in the NCVS survey were reported by non-Hispanic white respondents, 15 percent were reported by Hispanic respondents, and 13 percent were reported non-Hispanic black respondents.4 That tracks fairly closely with the racial and ethnic breakdown in the U.S., which is 62 percent non-Hispanic white, 17 percent Hispanic and 12 percent non-Hispanic black (according to the Census Bureau).
     

    reminds many of the specific vulnerability of black women when it comes to sexual assault.

    Only in the sense that they tend to be around black men more often than are women of other races and suffer accordingly. Although given the opportunity White women are often the preferred target.

    And from what I remember Oprah claims to have been raped not by White men but by a black male relative.

    What we are seeing here is something Trump doesn’t understand. “It isn’t the economy stupid”.

    It’s about black identity and Jewish identity, Latino identity etc.

    Black identity in America involves the perpetual demonization of White America, a mythical pure african past, a fixation on white racism and black heroic achievement – inventing everything, putting people on the moon, etc – despite White Evil.

    That black identity is worth more than any job, tax cut, protecting borders from Mexican drug cartels, etc.

    It’s a drug. Hating Whitey and seeing their black selves as innocence materialized is an addiction they can’t quit.

    Yeah, the article linked reads like a liberal troll trying to pass himself off as a conservative bigot. Since it's supposed to be Brits doing the writing, they're probably imitating actual Africans speaking pidgin English, though.

    Using pidgin to mock black Americans sounds like someone who's really retarded trying to use ebonics. Like those dickheads, most of them trolls, pretending to be conservatives who say "gibsmedat", which demonstrates a total tin ear for dialects.

    If they actually ever had any conversations with black Americans, they might say "gimme dat". Most liberals don't seem to even know any black people. Obama couldn't "speak ebonics" at all.

    I recall an article in the Charlotte Observer back in the '80s on the subject of using black teachers to teach black students because white teachers didn't "speak ebonics". The author had a good ear for the dialect. He quoted a student complaining about his white teacher, "Time I fine out what she tawn 'bout, she be done flonk me".

The red pins, with “Recy” in white lettering, drove that message home on the eve of Black History Month.

    I did a bit of research on this supposed event, and nobody is citing any contemporary sources for it other than the Communist Party USA’s Daily Worker, or other sources that in turn cite the Daily Worker, where it presumably ran next to “International Youth Delegation Praises Comrade Stalin” and “Stalin: War Final Stage of Capitalism.”

    How come when whites want to talk about the ongoing criminal activity of minorities we get accused of promoting racial divisions but when minorities want to talk about a rape that supposedly happened in 1944 this is shown as a good thing?

    They have to talk about a rape in 1944 because they couldn’t find any more recent cases of white guys raping black women. I’m sure there are a few, but for statistical reporting purposes, the rate of white on black rape is effectively zero (especially if you don’t count Latinos as whites). White dudes are just not interested in raping black women. Now that almost all black ghetto females are morbidly obese, they are even less attractive and they weren’t that attractive to begin with.

    OTOH, black men raping white women IS a thing but it’s a thing you are not allowed to talk about. Imagine if Republicans wore pins with the name of a white woman who was raped by a black guy? Oh, the horrible racism!

    But in the fantasy world of Democrats, evil white KKK guys just can’t wait to rape themselves some beautiful black women.

After a while, it seemed like the Ghanaian government forgot about the monthly payments. Dickenson, just off tour, made the daily flight to Accra in the plane Iron Maiden used, with the logos and a representation of Eddie, the band’s monster mascot, on the tail. Nobody would board the plane because of the bad juju! They used the plane again the next day, and the back billing was taken care of immediately.

    And this is one of the advanced nations in Africa.

    They have to talk about a rape in 1944 because they couldn't find any more recent cases of white guys raping black women. I'm sure there are a few, but for statistical reporting purposes, the rate of white on black rape is effectively zero (especially if you don't count Latinos as whites). White dudes are just not interested in raping black women. Now that almost all black ghetto females are morbidly obese, they are even less attractive and they weren't that attractive to begin with.

    OTOH, black men raping white women IS a thing but it's a thing you are not allowed to talk about. Imagine if Republicans wore pins with the name of a white woman who was raped by a black guy? Oh, the horrible racism!

    But in the fantasy world of Democrats, evil white KKK guys just can't wait to rape themselves some beautiful black women.

    for statistical reporting purposes, the rate of white on black rape is effectively zero

    I’ve been variously reporting on this fact since I discovered it during the Duke Lacrosse rape accusation scandal. Very few people want to believe it–most people think it (white men do not rape black women) is impossible.

    The Narrative is strong.

    • Replies: @Jack D
    Part of this has to do with the feminist definition of "rape" vs. the legal definition of rape.

    According to the feminists definitions, any sexual relationship between two people of unequal age or status (if the man is older or whiter or is the boss) is, by definition, "rape" because the woman is incapable of freely giving consent. 100% of black females sexual relationships with whites during the slavery period, for example, were rape, per se. Actual consent is irrelevant.

    Our legal system (the real one, not the phony college kangaroo courts) has, thank god, not caught up with this definition (and probably never will) and the crime stats are based on the legal definition and that is why the stats don't match the Narrative (that and the fact that the Narrative lies).

    Many of these same representatives, along with other Democrats, also wore pins in honor of Recy Taylor, a black woman who was kidnapped and raped by six white men in 1944. Ms. Taylor’s attackers were never charged, and she died in December having never received justice. Ms. Taylor’s name, made famous by Oprah Winfrey’s mention of her at the Golden Globes, reminds many of the specific vulnerability of black women when it comes to sexual assault. The red pins, with “Recy” in white lettering, drove that message home on the eve of Black History Month.
     
    I did a bit of research on this supposed event, and nobody is citing any contemporary sources for it other than the Communist Party USA's Daily Worker, or other sources that in turn cite the Daily Worker, where it presumably ran next to "International Youth Delegation Praises Comrade Stalin" and "Stalin: War Final Stage of Capitalism."

    Yeah, the article linked reads like a liberal troll trying to pass himself off as a conservative bigot. Since it’s supposed to be Brits doing the writing, they’re probably imitating actual Africans speaking pidgin English, though.

    Using pidgin to mock black Americans sounds like someone who’s really retarded trying to use ebonics. Like those dickheads, most of them trolls, pretending to be conservatives who say “gibsmedat”, which demonstrates a total tin ear for dialects.

    If they actually ever had any conversations with black Americans, they might say “gimme dat”. Most liberals don’t seem to even know any black people. Obama couldn’t “speak ebonics” at all.

    I recall an article in the Charlotte Observer back in the ’80s on the subject of using black teachers to teach black students because white teachers didn’t “speak ebonics”. The author had a good ear for the dialect. He quoted a student complaining about his white teacher, “Time I fine out what she tawn ’bout, she be done flonk me”.

    Wait, I forgot, sexual attraction has nothing to do with sexual assault, which is about power. If you believe sexual assault has anything to do with sex ...
     
    Yep, thanks for saying that, guest. I had heard that from girls who were proto-feminists back in the day and never believed it because my body knows more than a girl without the same parts does.

    As far as the black girls being more vulnerable, there is the supply side and the demand side. The former is high, and the latter is low.

    It’s a wonder they ever expected any man to believe it, that is if feminists know anything about male sexual mechanics. Because I don’t know about you, but I can’t will myself an erection, plus maintain it for however long, simply because I feel like being powerful. It’s not like a knife or a bat, which I can buy at a store and pick up at will.

    But as Theodore Dalrymple wrote, often these things aren’t about persuasion, but humiliation. Forcing a man to say he believes rape is about power instead of sex is a sign of your power. You’ve dominated his mind, in opposition to readily apparent reality.

  70. Even if the highly dubious 1944 rape happened, it really highlights the rarity of the crime having to go back 3/4 of a century. Black men routinely gang rape women today almost daily as do Latinos. It’s just not a white guy thing which is why the UVA fraternity and Duke lacrosse stories were so huge. They were such anomalies which happened to fit the narrative. But they turned out to be bogus of course. But stories like, say, gang rapes at Black Spring Break, are dog-bites-man. Everyone shrugs and says, “Duh…”

  74. Ed Sheeran Raises Money for Liberia — and Is Promptly Shamed (for WhiteSplaining) (by the same NYT writer as above)
    By TARIRO MZEZEWA ___ DEC. 12, 2017
    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/12/opinion/sheeran-radiaid-volunteer-africa.html

    Ed Sheeran may be the toast of Buckingham Palace, having received one of the country’s highest honors, the Order of the British Empire, for his services to music and charity. But last week he also received a dubious distinction: the star of the “most offensive” charity campaign of 2017. A charity watchdog group granted him its annual Rusty Radiator Award, accusing him and other celebrities of producing “poverty porn.”

    In the video, Mr. Sheeran travels to Liberia, the eighth-poorest country in the world, which was ravaged by Ebola between 2014 and 2015. He sees two homeless boys sleeping on the beach and is troubled by the situation.

    “It really does not feel right leaving at all,” Mr. Sheeran says toward the end of the video. “My natural instinct is to just put them in a car and put them somewhere in the city and put them in a hotel until we can get them sorted.”

    The video, made for the charity Comic Relief and the Disasters Emergencies Committee, was part of a fund-raising campaign that raised nearly $110 million for various causes, including assistance for children in Yemen, for people affected by the famine in East Africa and for homeless children in Liberia.

    That’s the one tiny detail that the critics of the video — and they were legion — couldn’t be troubled by. Instead they piled on, accusing Mr. Sheeran of perpetuating the worst stereotypes, including making himself into a white savior.

    One critic wrote that videos like Mr. Sheeran’s “oversimplify complicated, nuanced issues, leaving confused audiences with little more than de-contextualized images of starving children.” Another said the video “creates an artificial distinction between ‘us’ and ‘them.’ ” A third — incorrectly — chastised Mr. Sheeran for “not mentioning that he is specifically in the country of Liberia rather than in some unnamed part of the African continent.”

    specific vulnerability of black women when it comes to sexual assault.
     
    13% of sexual assaults involved by non-Hispanic black victims. So, no. In fact, blacks (and Hispanics) are slightly underrepresented per capita while whites are overrepresented. See: https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/sexual-assault-victims/

    Sixty-six percent of the incidents of rape and sexual assault included in the NCVS survey were reported by non-Hispanic white respondents, 15 percent were reported by Hispanic respondents, and 13 percent were reported non-Hispanic black respondents.4 That tracks fairly closely with the racial and ethnic breakdown in the U.S., which is 62 percent non-Hispanic white, 17 percent Hispanic and 12 percent non-Hispanic black (according to the Census Bureau).

    In exchange for guns and other European goods, the Ashanti sold gold and slaves, usually either captured in war or accepted as tribute from conquered peoples.

    During the 19th century, the Ashanti fought several wars with the British, who sought to eliminate the slave trade

    Only in the sense that they tend to be around black men more often than are women of other races and suffer accordingly. Although given the opportunity White women are often the preferred target.

    And from what I remember Oprah claims to have been raped not by White men but by a black male relative.

    What we are seeing here is something Trump doesn't understand. "It isn't the economy stupid".

    It's about black identity and Jewish identity, Latino identity etc.

    Black identity in America involves the perpetual demonization of White America, a mythical pure african past, a fixation on white racism and black heroic achievement - inventing everything, putting people on the moon, etc - despite White Evil.

    That black identity is worth more than any job, tax cut, protecting borders from Mexican drug cartels, etc.

    It's a drug. Hating Whitey and seeing their black selves as innocence materialized is an addiction they can't quit.

    They are sending that message to Trump and all the other White conservative types who love to say..."But Democrats are the Real Racists!!"

    How could a group at the bottom of the racio-sexual hierarchy be most vulnerable? I mean, unless you stretch the meaning of assault to getting high, hanging at your cousin Ray-Ray's party, and saying "Whatever" as you fall asleep before the train pulls into the station.

    Wait, I forgot, sexual attraction has nothing to do with sexual assault, which is about power. If you believe sexual assault has anything to do with sex, you are for nature over nurture and a hair's-breadth away from sending people to gas chambers.

    The left pushes the rape is about power angle because they know most rapes are committed by lower class men with poor impulse control. They explain this trend by arguing that lower class men feel powerless and humiliated and are taking their frustration out on women in their social orbit. Hence, women’s interests take second place to racial/class interests in modern feminism.

    In contrast, first-wave feminists were more concerned in controlling the behaviour of lower class men, which is why lots of early feminists were prohibitionists.

    “It really does not feel right leaving at all,” Mr. Sheeran says toward the end of the video. “My natural instinct is to just put them in a car and put them somewhere in the city and put them in a hotel until we can get them sorted.”

    The video, made for the charity Comic Relief and the Disasters Emergencies Committee, was part of a fund-raising campaign that raised nearly $110 million for various causes, including assistance for children in Yemen, for people affected by the famine in East Africa and for homeless children in Liberia.

    That’s the one tiny detail that the critics of the video — and they were legion — couldn’t be troubled by. Instead they piled on, accusing Mr. Sheeran of perpetuating the worst stereotypes, including making himself into a white savior.

    One critic wrote that videos like Mr. Sheeran’s “oversimplify complicated, nuanced issues, leaving confused audiences with little more than de-contextualized images of starving children.” Another said the video “creates an artificial distinction between ‘us’ and ‘them.’ ” A third — incorrectly — chastised Mr. Sheeran for “not mentioning that he is specifically in the country of Liberia rather than in some unnamed part of the African continent.”

    They have to talk about a rape in 1944 because they couldn't find any more recent cases of white guys raping black women. I'm sure there are a few, but for statistical reporting purposes, the rate of white on black rape is effectively zero (especially if you don't count Latinos as whites). White dudes are just not interested in raping black women. Now that almost all black ghetto females are morbidly obese, they are even less attractive and they weren't that attractive to begin with.

    OTOH, black men raping white women IS a thing but it's a thing you are not allowed to talk about. Imagine if Republicans wore pins with the name of a white woman who was raped by a black guy? Oh, the horrible racism!

    But in the fantasy world of Democrats, evil white KKK guys just can't wait to rape themselves some beautiful black women.

    Unbelieveably, it looks like black boys (in high school or middle school) raping white boys could be a thing in Tennessee, but the details are a little sketchy. Has anyone heard of this elsewhere?

We need a way for white parents specifically--but really all parents of middle class kids--to be able to get into a decent school environment, even if they can not afford the cost of a house in neighborhood with "good schools". There are a lot of white working and middle class parents whose kids deserve a lot better than the environment of the local public school.

    I've been variously reporting on this fact since I discovered it during the Duke Lacrosse rape accusation scandal. Very few people want to believe it--most people think it (white men do not rape black women) is impossible.

    The Narrative is strong.

    Part of this has to do with the feminist definition of “rape” vs. the legal definition of rape.

    According to the feminists definitions, any sexual relationship between two people of unequal age or status (if the man is older or whiter or is the boss) is, by definition, “rape” because the woman is incapable of freely giving consent. 100% of black females sexual relationships with whites during the slavery period, for example, were rape, per se. Actual consent is irrelevant.

    Our legal system (the real one, not the phony college kangaroo courts) has, thank god, not caught up with this definition (and probably never will) and the crime stats are based on the legal definition and that is why the stats don’t match the Narrative (that and the fact that the Narrative lies).

  110. @Twinkie

    specific vulnerability of black women when it comes to sexual assault.
     
    13% of sexual assaults involved by non-Hispanic black victims. So, no. In fact, blacks (and Hispanics) are slightly underrepresented per capita while whites are overrepresented. See: https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/sexual-assault-victims/

    Sixty-six percent of the incidents of rape and sexual assault included in the NCVS survey were reported by non-Hispanic white respondents, 15 percent were reported by Hispanic respondents, and 13 percent were reported non-Hispanic black respondents.4 That tracks fairly closely with the racial and ethnic breakdown in the U.S., which is 62 percent non-Hispanic white, 17 percent Hispanic and 12 percent non-Hispanic black (according to the Census Bureau).
     

    My guess is that black women are indeed significantly more likely to be raped (and be victims of other sexual assualt) than white women. I’d bet that black women underreport on NCVS even more than white women. And would be less likely to consider certain assaults to meet the bar of “sexual assault”. (I think more of them reporting an assualt have suffered and actual rape, rather than a lesser offense, and that they are less likely to report in general.) What’s the whole level of what’s “normal” or at least common in black underclass communities–which contain a much larger percentage of blacks–is just different than white standards, even underclass white standards.

    That said, this victimization is essentially entirely from black men. Has nothing to do with us white guys. And the cross racial skew in rape, is literally orders of magnitude. (Based on the police report stats i’d put it at 3 to 4, >1000-to-1.)

    I love Niven and Pournelle but I do not anticipate that particular novel being made into a movie any time soon (Ringworld was, haven’t seen it yet). Kind of a shame since it does what I guess is a good slice of life picture of 1970s Los Angeles. The leftist anti-white-dawa text Culture of Fear actually cites the siege at the end of Hammer and quotes extensively from it as a white supremacist paranoid fantasy. The fact that it looks an awful lot like modern South Africa wasn’t brought up.

    With this sort of protest–picking (an alleged) white on black rape of all things–blacks are really plunging hard into the open, “F u whitey! You gonna sit and take our beating!” political line that we’ve seen from Jews–Brooks, Stevens, Rubin, etc. etc. etc.–this past year.

    It’s the perps bitching about their nasty victims. It’s not even trying to present an argument, but simply–and openly–celebrating their hatred/contempt for whitey and desire to grind him into the ground.

    Again, i think whites need to respond to this with one word “Separation?”

    Or in a few more words. “Ok, you hate us. Great. In that case, let’s just separate.”

    The plain fact is there’s nothing white people need from blacks or Jews or Mexicans–nothing. We’re perfectly capable of creating and running–really pretty darn wonderful!–nice nations on our own. (In fact–not to dismiss what the Japanese, Koreans or Israelis have done, ours and generally regarded as the best in the world, the ones other people want to come to.) Rather it’s the reverse, these blacks and Jews and Mexicans need us around to get what they want. They just don’t want us to have control. They want us passively around–available for looting. I.e. slaves.

    I think mentioning “separation” is important to clarify the issues at stake and what’s really going on. Once that’s idea is “out there” and whites are willing to say it, the amount of abuse we have to put up with should head way down and our political prospects head up.

Alianna was black. Whitaker inflicted wounds with a variety of tool, including a drill. I would have applauded if the CBC had worn a pin in memory of Alianna.

That may be true, but that’s because they live in black communities and are surrounded by blacks. I haven’t looked at the data recently, but if I remember correctly the main threat of sexual assault to black women is black men, whether we’re talking about rape or murder. White on black rape is so rare as to be nearly statistically negligible.

    The trial of Christopher Whitaker for the rape, torture and murder of 14 yr. Alianna Defreeze is starting in Cleveland. Whitaker, a black male, has a prior felony conviction for rape. His former victim was a black woman, that he beat, strangled into unconsciousness, raped and stabbed in the neck. Alianna, who had learning disabilities, was kidnapped on her way to school. Alianna was black. Whitaker inflicted wounds with a variety of tool, including a drill. I would have applauded if the CBC had worn a pin in memory of Alianna.

    Interesting fact from the coverage of the poor girl’s murder is that her grandfather, Donald DeFreeze, was one of the leaders of the Symbionese Liberation Army and the planner of the Hearst kidnapping.

  126. Brute, totally did not know that. I started following this case when my daughter texted me to pray that they found Alianna ok. Whitaker never should have been on the streets. I read that he drilled holes in her head while she still was alive. Ohio still has the death penalty for what it’s worth.

    Will Shortz, call the office. Eugene T Maleska has returned from the dead, and he wants his job back.

    Now, the new, fake Atlantic City where Illinois Avenue has been replaced by the Most Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Junior, Boulevard (which can’t fit on a three-inch-square deed)– that’s worthy of complaint.

    Besides, mzezewa could find a place as an onomatopoetic term for the sound your electric razor makes after you’ve just cleaned and oiled it.

    Are they really so stupid to think an unsolved 1944 crime is more relevant than the hundreds of similar crimes (with racial dynamics reversed) from the past year?

    Oh absolutely. These characters have no sense of irony.

  129. They can even all become dictators over the various ooga booga countries. They might actually improve things a bit. Imagine Supreme Queen Maxine Waters of Burkina Faso…

    " regarded as totally useless even by other Democrats, other than for purposes of symbolism"

    The GOP should be relentlessly pounding the Dems over the head on this issue. "Why is not one member of the Black Caucus in a leadership position?" over and over. Scold them on it every chance they get.

    "If John Lewis was a Republican we'd make him Speaker of the House"...that sort of stuff.

    Well, they created the position of “Assistant Minority Leader” to give Rep. James Clyburn a spot. When a party loses the majority, they lose one leadership position (Speaker) all else equal. Apparently the ensuing game of musical chairs was set to a honky-tonk tune, so Clyburn was the odd man out. Of course none of the other (white) leaders, like Rep. Steny Hoyer, could give up their spots in the name of diversity, to the Democrats created a new one, with apparently no defined function other than to be the black guy sitting on the front benches.
