From the New York Post:

The comments that became a reporter’s death sentence

By Marisa Schultz and Frank Rosario August 28, 2015 | 1:01am

ROANOKE, Va. — The words are a part of everyday conversation — “swinging” by an address and going out in the “field.”

But in the twisted mind of Virginia gunman Vester Lee Flanagan II, they were pure racism — and saying them became a death sentence for Alison Parker.

The 24-year-old white reporter, who was murdered on live TV along with her cameraman, used the phrases as an intern at ­WDBJ TV in Roanoke in 2012, according to an internal complaint filed by Flanagan, who was black.

“One was something about ‘swinging’ by some place; the other was out in the ‘field,’ ” said the Jan. 21 report by assistant news director Greg Baldwin, which refers to Parker as Alison Bailey (her middle name).

Parker was never disciplined over the remarks, but Flanagan never forgot them.

Hours after gunning her and Adam Ward down during their broadcast Wednesday, Flanagan revealed in tweets that the comments were still fresh in his mind.

“Alison made racist comments,” Flanagan posted while he was on the run from cops.

“They hired her after that??” he wrote.

But colleagues said that it was all in Flanagan’s head and that Parker was as far from racist as they come.

“That’s how that guy’s mind worked. Just crazy, left-field assumptions like that,” Ryan Fuqua, a video editor at WDBJ, told The Post.

“[Those words are] just common, everyday talk. [But] that was his MO — to start s- -t,” Fuqua ­explained. …

Flanagan made the accusations a month before he was fired in February 2013. The document was part of his unsuccessful discrimination lawsuit against the television station.

Trevor Fair, a 33-year-old cameraman at WDBJ for six years, said that the words Parker used are commonplace but that they would routinely set Flanagan off.

“We would say stuff like, ‘The reporter’s out in the field.’ And he would look at us and say, ‘What are you saying, cotton fields? That’s racist,’ ” Fair recounted.

“We’d be like, ‘What?’ We all know what that means, but he took it as cotton fields, and therefore we’re all racists.”

“This guy was a nightmare,” Fair said. “Management’s worst nightmare.”

Flanagan assumed everything was a jab at his race, even when a manager brought in watermelon for all employees.

“Of course, he thought that was racist. He was like, ‘You’re doing that because of me.’ No, the general manager brought in watermelon for the entire news team. He’s like, ‘Nope, this is out for me. You guys are calling me out because I’m black.’ ”

Flanagan even declared that ­7-Eleven was racist because it sold watermelon-flavored Slurpees.

“It’s not a coincidence, they’re racist,” he allegedly told Fair.

This is a little reminiscent of the 543-page police reported that exonerated Omar Thornton’s eight victims of being racist. From Reuters via WHNT:

No proof of racism at site of 2010 shooting rampage: police
Zach Howard
Reuters
May 13, 2011

CONWAY, Mass (Reuters) – There is no proof of systemic racism at a Connecticut beer distributor where a gunman shot dead eight people last year because he said African-Americans were treated badly, a police probe concluded.

Omar Thornton, 34, a driver at Hartford Distributors, a family-owned beer wholesaler 10 miles east of the state capital in Manchester, shot eight people before killing himself in August 2010.

Minutes before the frenzy took place, Thornton, who was black, was fired at a disciplinary meeting for having stolen beer and empty kegs from the company.

Manchester police on Thursday released a 543-page report on its investigation into the killing …

Police Chief Marc Montminy told a press conference that there had been allegations that Thornton had photographic evidence of racial slurs against him on his cell phone. But Montminy said forensic analysis of the phone showed that “that is not true.”

“We also interviewed the other minorities that worked at the facility to see if there was systemic racism within the building, and not only did they not agree with Omar’s position but they found quite the contrary,” Montminy said. …

    Given the sainting of Michael Brown, lies about ‘hands up don’t shoot’, myth of white college ‘rape culture’, UVA lunacy, micro-aggression nuttiness, trigger alert nuttiness, mattress girl silliness, unarmed thugs, baby with skittles, paranoia about every confed flag(even to the point of censoring dukes of hazard), and etc, was Flanagan any crazier?

    Only in having used a gun. Otherwise, his lunacy was very much in line with current culture where colleges say even words like ‘fathering’, ‘mothering’, ‘american’, and ‘homosexual’ are offensive.

    And before we denounce Flanagan, consider all the ‘rational’ and ‘sane’ people who see nukes, ‘terrorists’, and WMD everywhere to warrant whole invasion/destruction of other nations. while they never see Israel’s nukes or its slaughter of Palestinians.

    US is currently going postal on Russia, a nation that means no harm, because Jews see ‘new hitler’ in the ban on ‘gay’ parades.

    And consider how Holder had to comb thru every square inch of Ferguson to find the incriminating ‘watermelon’.

    This guys see something more than watermelons everywhere, esp in Iran.

    He said it while the guy bumped into a proud black man, so 'Mamma Mia' is clearly a hate phrase. And the Segway, you can't get any whiter than those- clearly a lot of hate going on in that video.

    Well, there's a difference in that one murdered two innocent people and the other one wrote article for the NY Times. But the dots are a bit closer together between Rankin and Flanagan than between, say, Israel's nukes and Michael Brown that you mentioned in your previous comment.

    The connection is this: what Rankin seems to be doing is defining aggressive obnoxiousness as an authentic African American trait, and attempts to enforce conventional standards of decorum as racist. And, clearly, Flanagan was an aggressive, obnoxious guy, who got away with being that way as long as he did because he was black.

    You have signed your death warrant, Anonymous. (BTW what kind of name is "Anonymous"? Sounds Turkish.)

Not only do you want to avoid having too many "posts" in a sentence, lest someone accuse you of "going postal," but having "post" and "hung" in the same message might get Beavis and Butthead all worked up to the point where they start making endless puns and engaging in mass murder, since the connection is so obviously clear.)

    BTW with all this talk about the racial connotations of watermelon, I'm a little surprised that no one has pointed out that watermelons have black seeds. And what do you do when you get a black seed in your mouth? Spit it out, of course. Except for the seedless variety, which is proof positive that there is a conspiracy afoot to remove all blacks from American society. Racist either way, no matter how you cut it.

  9. I live in the South (don’t hold it against me) and that type of hypersensitivity is very common among blacks in the workplace. I once saw a black guy go to management because a white coworker, who was an Army veteran, had a “Freedom isn’t free” sign on his desk and the black guy claimed this was saying that blacks didn’t deserve to be free, therefore the guy was racist. My current black coworkers openly talk about looking for reasons to sue the company and you have to be very careful what you say around them. To make matters worse, there is a TV in our office and it is tuned to CNN 24/7. The last year has been very interesting to say the least. I’ve had the non-pleasure of watching Ferguson, Baltimore and Charleston unfold with them in real time. I work for a good company that pays well, has good benefits, and a lot of the blacks have college degrees, but they are still angry and hostile.

    Oh yeah! A few years ago one of the custodians at my workplace terrorized me for months. He was so obsessed with what I thought of Blacks that he could not stay away from me and he did almost zero work. He would spend all his time hanging out by my cubicle testing" my opinions on Blacks by telling me stories to see my reaction to them. He would regularly engage in freak outs because I played a blues song, or any song featuring a banjo ( I love Doc Watson) on YouTube. He would freak out over anything to do with fried chicken. One time he told me that some guy we worked with looked like Jack Black and I joked that all Whites must look alike to him. "You calling me ignorant, I ain't ignorant, you jus' racist!" Then he ran around the room yelling that I was racist. He tried to enlist our Chinese co-workers in a mob attack against me, but they just stared slack-jawed at him. One later told me that she found him frightening.

    Another Black worker told me that "He's just an old crackhead," and "You don't need to conversate with him, he ain't right". We were all afraid he was going to come in shooting one day and I knew that I'd be the second victim after his boss Uncle Tom.

    I worked under a Black man once. One day I returned to the classroom after lunch, and there he was by himself in front of the computer -- literally whistling Dixie!

    He was a former DL under Lovie Smith and John Cooper at Tulsa. He told me stories about his trip to play at BYU; a White kid ran the opening kickoff back for a TD because the Tulsa players were already winded at that altitude. His recounting of the story was hilarious.

    We had a lot of fun hazing my co-worker -- a pretty and pleasant Black girl just out of college -- about her boyfriend, #29, who was still playing corner back at her Sun Belt alma mater. Then she moved on to one of the Dallas Cowboys' starting corners, but in between she was sweet on me. Obviously, there's no accounting for taste! I should feel honored, I suppose, since her Facebook page shows she has almost no White friends. I did like her quite a bit.

    I guess I just got lucky in that work situation.

  10. OT:

    Here’s a documentary about poor whites in South Africa. There are some annoying banners in the corners that reappear after every commercial. It mostly focuses on a white squatter camp in Coronation Park in Johannesburg. Most of the people are unemployed, but the son of the woman who leads the camp is a welder who works but cannot afford to move out. The show doesn’t answer this question, but it made me imagine a rich white guy who owns a company, cuts in his Black Economic Empowerment partners, and now gets to pay all his employees whatever wage the market will bear, which a constant influx of immigration from other parts of Africa pushes even lower.

  11. OT.
    Feminism results in extinction, but hey, what can you do?

    Are Parsis on a path to self-destruction?

    India’s Registrar General J K Banthia says the community is heading towards extinction in India, and, in effect, the world because Parsis are only found in India.

    He says at this rate Parsis may not live to see the next century.

    From 1941, when the community probably peaked at 115,000, the 2001 census showed only 69,601 Parsis.

    As any demographer will point out, there is a direct correlation between prosperity and fertility across the globe: more the prosperity, fewer the children; and vice-versa.

    On the socio-economic and education front, Muslims and Parsis are at the extreme ends of the spectrum.

    “The Parsi decline is the price the community is paying for its women’s education and emancipation,” says Patel.

    Parsi women tend to study more and marry late. They end up having fewer children. “One cannot push couples to have more children just to ensure a community’s viability,” points out Patel.

    • Replies: @SPMoore8
    Parsis are the Indian remnants of Zoroastrians, the splinter group of the original Aryans who came down into the subcontinent. Most of the Aryans evolved Hinduism, but a small remnant followed the prophet Zoroaster (Zarathustra). I've often thought that Nietzsche used him as a mouthpiece for his book to provide a natural counterweight to the Judaeo-Christian tradition on which our culture is based (although Zoroastrianism was also the backbone to the Magi of ancient Persia, and appears to have influenced the J-C tradition also.) Depending how one interprets it, it might be the oldest monotheism in the world, by a long stretch. But it has been dying out forever. Zubin Mehta and Freddie Mercury were Parsis, IIRC. It's well worth studying.

    Why the Hell not?!? You can't tell women to change their behavior, even if by not doing so, the result is effectively genocide ie., what's widely regarded as the very worst of all possible outcomes? So, just what are these "women," then, these mysterious creatures who's whims are more important than survival? No wonder homosexual guys are throwing on wigs, lipstick, and a pair of falsies, and proclaiming themselves to be "women." They want some of that exalted level of privilege, too.

    When you fear certain animals that sometimes hunt you, you hope they don’t exist. They can hurt you and your kind.

    When those animals begin to fear your kind who now hunt them, you hope they do keep existing(even as you hunt them down). They are fun to hunt and bagging them is worth something.

    There was a time when blacks really did fear ‘racists who hunted and hurt them. ‘Racists’ were the predators, and blacks-as-prey hoped ‘racists’ didn’t exist.

    But then, ‘racists’ became the prey and it was open season on ‘racists’. Hunting them was fun and cool, and everyone joined in the hunt.

    As the hunt became a national pastime, blacks no longer feared ‘racists’ but took delight in hunting them as game.

    But ‘racists'(the overt kind certainly) have gone near-extinct.
    So, the black frustration isn’t really about too much ‘racism’ but not enough ‘racists’ to hunt down. How can they enjoy the hunt when ‘racists’ are gone and vanished?

    So, Flanagan made believe that non-‘racists’ are ‘racists’ too and hunted them.

    Africans fear lions and wish they didn’t exist.
    White hunters love lion-hunting and wish lions do exist. Whites with guns have power over lions and don’t fear them and enjoy hunting them. Prey wish predators don’t exist, but predators wish that prey exist.

    There was a time when blacks were the prey and the ‘racists’ were predators.
    Back then, blacks would have been happy to see all ‘racists’ gone.

    But then, blacks became the predators of ‘racists’ since the 60s, and it became a national sport for blacks.
    It defines black warriorhood. To bag a ‘racist’ like white hunters bag lions.
    But with no ‘racists’ to be found, blacks are awful frustrated and wanna spot a ‘racist’ even when the accused isn’t to bag him as trophy. Don Imus made a good trophy.

    Same with Jews.
    When Nazis had the power, Jews-as-prey wanted Nazis not to exist. Nazis were predators.

    But once Jews became the hunters of the Nazis and other ‘anti-semites’, it became a great game for the Jews.
    So, Jews feel this need to keep finding and hunting Nazi criminals. And when real Nazi criminals can no longer be found, the new Nazis(Russians and Iranians) are sought, and some see a Nazi even in Trump.
    As Jews are now predators of antisemitic prey, Jews want there to be antisemites for a good hunt.

  13. So unfortunate. This is what happens when micro-aggression philosophy meets mental illness with an anti-white culture. Too bad I´m an agnostic, because I would really like to believe there is Hell waiting for this creature who shouldn´t even be considered a human, more like a slug, or maggot.

    One more thing in this unfortunate event I´ve noticed. The brainwashing of the average American runs so deep that her own father., instead of being out raged at the obvious and stated goal of the racist low-life, is on a crusade against guns and the American way of life. His daughter´s body isn´t even cold yet, but he acts like a pundit and obsesses with gun control. Maybe it[s a coping mechanism, but in my eyes it´s pretty cold to be lobbying for gun control before your daughter is even buried. Let alone not having the cojones to call a spade a spade and call out the racist murder that happened.WTF happened to America…

    No, it's the general liberal opinion. We wouldn't have all these shootings if we didn't have all these guns. The problem is the guns.

    Truthfully, European 'diversity' crime is limited to knife crime by the rarity of guns (so even race is not a complete explanation, though yes, they are willfully ignoring that). But the guns are already there--we're not going to be able to remove them all. (Cold dead hands, and all that.) So, you know...I'd rather the honest citizens have guns, since the crooks already have them.

I said I wasn't, but I was blaming "nice HR ladies". She had a bigger problem with that comment, saying that HR departments were not mostly female. I proceeded to introduce her to the facts available to anyone wanting them (about 70% of large HR departments are women, Freida Kapor, etc.), to which she responded by calling me a dick and blocking me!

    This makes him different from the typical black person how? That’s Ta-Neshi Coates’s whole schtick, isn’t it?
     
    Sometimes, at universities in the South, after an afternoon practice in the August heat, the trainers will lay out table after table of watermelon for the football players. I've never heard of a complaint.

    He appeared to be a mulatto from the "talented tenth" - his father was a college dean. So he must have grown up in the toxic SJW environment of the college campus. Mulattoes can be the most dangerous kind of Negro because they sometimes combine the violence and amorality of the black with (some) of the superior intelligence of the white, depending on how the genetic dice roll. On a good day you get Colin Powell and on a bad day you get Vester. I won't say what kind of day it was when Obama was born.

    Flanagan apparently didn't originally intend to kill himself and had formulated a getaway plan with wigs and disguises, etc. It wasn't a very good plan but it was far beyond the planning abilities of say a Michael Brown or a Trayvon Martin who couldn't play the chess game even one move ahead.

    Hurst, btw, is an Anglo-saxon word meaning a small woodland, particularly one on a small hill by a bend in a creek or river. Brookhurst was a main street in the Garden Grove of my childhood. Somewhere along the line developers started naming streets ‘Avenida de las palomitos’ or so such…and met no resistance. That’s when all was lost.

  23. The Black Homo murdered one woman and seriously injured another woman, so why aren’t the Left Wing media calling this a war on women? Oh I just remembered, only Heterosexual Cisgender White guys both real and fake non existent ones are capable of committing a war on women.

    Haven Monahan is a bigger monster than Vester Lee Flanagan. By the way when is Hussein Obama’s DOJ going to arrest Haven Monahan for a hate crime? The hate crime being that he brutally oppresses all women that he comes in contact with because he sees them as the inferior sex.

    In tone and lunacy, there really is no difference between Flanagan and Rankin(who wrote of Williams).

    It's "I see 'racism, racism, racism'."

    Well, there’s a difference in that one murdered two innocent people and the other one wrote article for the NY Times. But the dots are a bit closer together between Rankin and Flanagan than between, say, Israel’s nukes and Michael Brown that you mentioned in your previous comment.

    The connection is this: what Rankin seems to be doing is defining aggressive obnoxiousness as an authentic African American trait, and attempts to enforce conventional standards of decorum as racist. And, clearly, Flanagan was an aggressive, obnoxious guy, who got away with being that way as long as he did because he was black.

  25. Not only was Vester Lee Flanagan bat shit crazy, but he also had a disgusting lifestyle. His apartment smelled really bad because it was full of feces and urine all over his kitchen floor and balcony.

    no no no...grovelling on your knees and apologizing for your white privilege is also 100% unforgivable, unbearable, and perhaps worthy of death, as follows...

    number one, you got to have your white privilege on in the first place...

    number two, you then give it up AS IF IT WERE NOTHING when your having-of-it meant so much suffering for black folk, and it was utterly unattainable NOW YOU CAST IT ASIDE like a used condom, thus slighting the centuried misery of black folk - how do you think that makes them feel, you got to be better than them initially, and now, by casting it aside you show that YOU ARE TOO GOOD to be better than them...you have now promulgated white supremacy on the meta-level...the renunciation of white privilege is merely another further horrifying display of white privilege...after all, black folk can't ever renounce their own white privilege, now, can they...

    number three, now that you are grovelling and apologizing continuously, your activity-as-importunity is still somehow imperiously demanding various tributes from black people i.e. that you should be forgiven, or, that your activity should be acknowledged, or that it make a difference somehow, or, that you should be killed last, or, that you should be allowed to kill other white people before being killed or killing yourself (or however white-devil-Vernichtung sets up), yadda-yadda-yadda...your so-called submission is all about YOU YOU YOU, it never even sees black folk, you are still (through sublimation) the white master blankly giving orders to the black bots

My current black coworkers openly talk about looking for reasons to sue the company and you have to be very careful what you say around them. To make matters worse, there is a TV in our office and it is tuned to CNN 24/7. The last year has been very interesting to say the least. I've had the non-pleasure of watching Ferguson, Baltimore and Charleston unfold with them in real time. I work for a good company that pays well, has good benefits, and a lot of the blacks have college degrees, but they are still angry and hostile.

    http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2012/03/how-your-cat-is-making-you-crazy/308873/

    The psychiatrist E. Fuller Torrey agrees—though he came to this viewpoint from a completely different angle than either Webster or Flegr. His opinion stems from decades of research into the root causes of schizophrenia. “Textbooks today still make silly statements that schizophrenia has always been around, it’s about the same incidence all over the world, and it’s existed since time immemorial,” he says. “The epidemiology literature contradicts that completely.” In fact, he says, schizophrenia did not rise in prevalence until the latter half of the 18th century, when for the first time people in Paris and London started keeping cats as pets. The so-called cat craze began among “poets and left-wing avant-garde Greenwich Village types,” says Torrey, but the trend spread rapidly—and coinciding with that development, the incidence of schizophrenia soared.

    The insight about Christianity is good; but it's just the clothes we wear. Humans all over the world, mostly non-Christian, have all of these social and psychological pathologies. That suggests that humans, intrinsically, have a tendency to show these kinds of pathologies. In turn, that suggests that religion represents an attempt to channel and control these pathologies, religion is not the source or cause.

    Which is one problem I have with atheists. Yes, there are people who are "so smart" and "so rational" that they do not "need" religion. Fine. But most people are neither, and religion is an explanation, consolation and structure for controlling all the weird stuff our minds create. Secular types on the other hand, from their summit of reason and secular humanism, are completely blind to their shortfalls, because, hey, I'm being rational, how could I be doing anything irrational?

And, since I work at home, I sometimes see the garbage men as they collect my trash. Once, I asked them to wait while I went inside to get some more stuff that needed to go.

    Well, this is how I would handle that ticklish problem. I would explain to that reindeer herder from Lapland in English (and hope he understood English since I speak neither Finnish nor Sami) that I seldom make fried chicken even for myself because it is too much bother and messy and I seldom eat watermelon because I prefer cantaloupe in season and rarely serve it when I have guests for dinner, regardless of color (of the guests, that is, not the cantaloupe, which is generally of the orange hue). Heaven forbid that cantaloupe should acquire any racial connotations because I certainly would not want to experience any guilt while I savor its tasty orange flesh (other than John Boehner, I am not aware of any orange colored people, so I think I am pretty safe there). As tasty as fried chicken is, I prefer making a roast chicken instead because there is less work (and I came across a great recipe about 15 years ago; the secret is to cook it at 425 degrees and let it rest for 10 minutes after pulling it from the oven, not the traditional 350 degrees I learned back in the late 60's--check out Craig Claiborne's classic "NY Times Cook Book" at p. 185). If I got a craving for fried chicken, I would go out to the nearest Popeyes. (I have passed the nearest Popeyes literally hundred of times in the past 20+ years, and I always make a mental note that I should stop there one day, but that day still hasn't arrived.) BTW whenever I have guests over for dinner, I usually serve roast leg of lamb (about 50% of the time) because it is easy to make and it's delicious and my guests like it as much as I do (I don't know how to explain that to a reindeer herder from Lapland, which doesn't matter since I have never encountered such a fellow in my life).

    "Flanagan even declared that ­7-Eleven was racist because it sold watermelon-flavored Slurpees."

    Given the sainting of Michael Brown, lies about 'hands up don't shoot', myth of white college 'rape culture', UVA lunacy, micro-aggression nuttiness, trigger alert nuttiness, mattress girl silliness, unarmed thugs, baby with skittles, paranoia about every confed flag(even to the point of censoring dukes of hazard), and etc, was Flanagan any crazier?

    Only in having used a gun. Otherwise, his lunacy was very much in line with current culture where colleges say even words like 'fathering', 'mothering', 'american', and 'homosexual' are offensive.

    And before we denounce Flanagan, consider all the 'rational' and 'sane' people who see nukes, 'terrorists', and WMD everywhere to warrant whole invasion/destruction of other nations. while they never see Israel's nukes or its slaughter of Palestinians.

    US is currently going postal on Russia, a nation that means no harm, because Jews see 'new hitler' in the ban on 'gay' parades.

    And consider how Holder had to comb thru every square inch of Ferguson to find the incriminating 'watermelon'.

    This guys see something more than watermelons everywhere, esp in Iran.

    And of course SPLC and ADL see a Nazi in every white person.

    The irony here is that while trying to highlight examples of taken-for-granted lunacy that are similar to the thoughts of Flanagan, you have managed to serve up–unwittingly– a shining example of that which you are trying to expose:

    So apparently the only way for a white person not to be guilty of the capital crime of white privilege (other than going trans-racial like Rachel Dolezal) is to grovel on your knees and apologize every day for your white skin privilege. Check your privilege! All the time. Never say "field" or serve watermelon lest you cause some offended black to justly take revenge on your cracker ass.

    no no no…grovelling on your knees and apologizing for your white privilege is also 100% unforgivable, unbearable, and perhaps worthy of death, as follows…

    number one, you got to have your white privilege on in the first place…

    number two, you then give it up AS IF IT WERE NOTHING when your having-of-it meant so much suffering for black folk, and it was utterly unattainable NOW YOU CAST IT ASIDE like a used condom, thus slighting the centuried misery of black folk – how do you think that makes them feel, you got to be better than them initially, and now, by casting it aside you show that YOU ARE TOO GOOD to be better than them…you have now promulgated white supremacy on the meta-level…the renunciation of white privilege is merely another further horrifying display of white privilege…after all, black folk can’t ever renounce their own white privilege, now, can they…

    number three, now that you are grovelling and apologizing continuously, your activity-as-importunity is still somehow imperiously demanding various tributes from black people i.e. that you should be forgiven, or, that your activity should be acknowledged, or that it make a difference somehow, or, that you should be killed last, or, that you should be allowed to kill other white people before being killed or killing yourself (or however white-devil-Vernichtung sets up), yadda-yadda-yadda…your so-called submission is all about YOU YOU YOU, it never even sees black folk, you are still (through sublimation) the white master blankly giving orders to the black bots

    (long story short, the existence of white people is the original sin, and the complete annihilation of white people is the one-and-only, necessary-and-sufficient, categorically-imperative affirmative action)

    Are Parsis on a path to self-destruction?

    India's Registrar General J K Banthia says the community is heading towards extinction in India, and, in effect, the world because Parsis are only found in India.

    He says at this rate Parsis may not live to see the next century.
    ...
    From 1941, when the community probably peaked at 115,000, the 2001 census showed only 69,601 Parsis.
    ...
    As any demographer will point out, there is a direct correlation between prosperity and fertility across the globe: more the prosperity, fewer the children; and vice-versa.

    On the socio-economic and education front, Muslims and Parsis are at the extreme ends of the spectrum.

    "The Parsi decline is the price the community is paying for its women's education and emancipation," says Patel.
    ...
    Parsi women tend to study more and marry late. They end up having fewer children. "One cannot push couples to have more children just to ensure a community's viability," points out Patel.

     

    Parsis are the Indian remnants of Zoroastrians, the splinter group of the original Aryans who came down into the subcontinent. Most of the Aryans evolved Hinduism, but a small remnant followed the prophet Zoroaster (Zarathustra). I’ve often thought that Nietzsche used him as a mouthpiece for his book to provide a natural counterweight to the Judaeo-Christian tradition on which our culture is based (although Zoroastrianism was also the backbone to the Magi of ancient Persia, and appears to have influenced the J-C tradition also.) Depending how one interprets it, it might be the oldest monotheism in the world, by a long stretch. But it has been dying out forever. Zubin Mehta and Freddie Mercury were Parsis, IIRC. It’s well worth studying.

On a good day you get Colin Powell and on a bad day you get Vester. I won’t say what kind of day it was when Obama was born.

    Later, over lunch in the mahogany-paneled Queen’s Club dining room, Jamaica’s Colonial Secretary provides James Bond, who has arrived from England to investigate, with a thumbnail racial sketch of the Caribbean island:

    “It’s like this.” He began his antics with the pipe. “The Jamaican is a kindly lazy man with the virtues and vices of a child. He lives on a very rich island but he doesn’t get rich from it. He doesn’t know how to and he’s too lazy. The British come and go and take the easy pickings, but for about two hundred years no Englishman has made a fortune out here. He doesn’t stay long enough. He takes a fat cut and leaves. It’s the Portuguese Jews who make the most. They came here with the British and they’ve stayed. But they’re snobs and they spend too much of their fortunes on building fine houses and giving dances. They’re the names that fill the social column in the Gleaner when the tourists have gone. They’re in rum and tobacco and they represent the big British firms over here – motor cars, insurance and so forth. Then come the Syrians, very rich too, but not such good businessmen. They have most of the stores and some of the best hotels. They’re not a very good risk. Get overstocked and have the occasional fire to get liquid again. Then there are the Indians with their usual flashy trade in soft goods and the like. They’re not much of a lot. Finally there are the Chinese, solid, compact, discreet – the most powerful clique in Jamaica. They’ve got the bakeries and the laundries and the best food stores. They keep to themselves and keep their strain pure.” Pleydell-Smith laughed. “Not that they don’t take the black girls when they want them. You can see the result all over Kingston – Chigroes – Chinese Negroes or Negresses. The Chigroes are a tough, forgotten race. They look down on the Negroes and the Chinese look down on them. One day they may become a nuisance. They’ve got some of the intelligence of the Chinese and most of the vices of the black man. The police have a lot of trouble with them.”

    Zoroastrians are cool. Couple years back I read of horrifying difficulties the Parsis were having vis-a-vis their traditional corpse-disposal-via-exposure-to-vultures atop their Towers Of Silence. Evidently there is some cheap antibiotic that the modern-thinking Indian agriculturalists tend to firmly dish out to their livestock, whether they need to or not, because they can. Sadly when the local vultures feed from such treated animal corpses, the vultures perish from the antibiotic (or some metabolite, I forget) which the vulture kidneys can't handle. So this huge vulture shortage ensues, and consequently the corpses of the dead Parsis don't go away in the approved manner but instead pile-up on the roof creating what has to be a dispiriting spectacle. The system is failing.

    When I say "Indian remnant of Zoro ..." I did not mean to imply that they were indigenous to India. Of course "Parsi" means Persian.

  65. I think we sometimes pay too much attention to IQ differences between peoples and not enough to the differing degrees of social cooperation between blacks and other races. Since much of what we call ‘civilization’ has been the result of people being able to subordinate their egos in order to function within a hierarchy those who lack that ability find themselves in conflict with authority.

    European and Asian populations have lived in hierarchical societies for the past two thousand or so years. Those who found themselves in conflict with authority did not do well if they survived at all. Blacks have only been exposed to this type of social organization for, at best, a few hundred years and they aren’t very good at it. This has real consequences beyond the feelings of persecution or imagining ‘racism’ being the source of all one’s misfortunes. It limits one’s ability to accomplish anything of substance.

    There are no black enterprises of any consequence anywhere in the world because blacks are incapable of organizing themselves in a hierarchical fashion that can produce, on a large scale, goods and services. For them hierarchy is all about a struggle for supremacy not a cooperative endeavor to advance the organization.

    I walk around Toronto a lot, and one of the things that irritates me to no end are east Asians bumping in to you or abruptly changing direction to walk in to you as if you are invisible. You have to be on your guard to swerve quickly otherwise a pedestrian collision will occur. It's a very strange habit, I generally don't see this in other people. I wonder why this is though, I like east Asians, but why do so many do that? I have heard many others comment on this as well, including people that have gone over to teach in China.

    That's too bad. Because more Whites in general, and white women in particular, need to wake up and see just how dysfunctional the 'black community' is.

    Lots of white women seem to be impermeable to certain HATE facts.

    I originally posted the story on my FB page with the line “Be careful with your complaints to HR!”.

    A white female friend, a former on-camera personality on a local station who was let go when she reached a certain age, as well as a firmly-closeted lesbian, excoriated me for blaming the victims. I said I wasn’t, but I was blaming “nice HR ladies”. She had a bigger problem with that comment, saying that HR departments were not mostly female. I proceeded to introduce her to the facts available to anyone wanting them (about 70% of large HR departments are women, Freida Kapor, etc.), to which she responded by calling me a dick and blocking me!

    He appeared to be a mulatto from the "talented tenth" - his father was a college dean. So he must have grown up in the toxic SJW environment of the college campus. Mulattoes can be the most dangerous kind of Negro because they sometimes combine the violence and amorality of the black with (some) of the superior intelligence of the white, depending on how the genetic dice roll. On a good day you get Colin Powell and on a bad day you get Vester. I won't say what kind of day it was when Obama was born.

    Flanagan apparently didn't originally intend to kill himself and had formulated a getaway plan with wigs and disguises, etc. It wasn't a very good plan but it was far beyond the planning abilities of say a Michael Brown or a Trayvon Martin who couldn't play the chess game even one move ahead.

    Later, over lunch in the mahogany-paneled Queen’s Club dining room, Jamaica’s Colonial Secretary provides James Bond, who has arrived from England to investigate, with a thumbnail racial sketch of the Caribbean island:

    “It’s like this.” He began his antics with the pipe. “The Jamaican is a kindly lazy man with the virtues and vices of a child. He lives on a very rich island but he doesn’t get rich from it. He doesn’t know how to and he’s too lazy. The British come and go and take the easy pickings, but for about two hundred years no Englishman has made a fortune out here. He doesn’t stay long enough. He takes a fat cut and leaves. It’s the Portuguese Jews who make the most. They came here with the British and they’ve stayed. But they’re snobs and they spend too much of their fortunes on building fine houses and giving dances. They’re the names that fill the social column in the Gleaner when the tourists have gone. They’re in rum and tobacco and they represent the big British firms over here – motor cars, insurance and so forth. Then come the Syrians, very rich too, but not such good businessmen. They have most of the stores and some of the best hotels. They’re not a very good risk. Get overstocked and have the occasional fire to get liquid again. Then there are the Indians with their usual flashy trade in soft goods and the like. They’re not much of a lot. Finally there are the Chinese, solid, compact, discreet – the most powerful clique in Jamaica. They’ve got the bakeries and the laundries and the best food stores. They keep to themselves and keep their strain pure.” Pleydell-Smith laughed. “Not that they don’t take the black girls when they want them. You can see the result all over Kingston – Chigroes – Chinese Negroes or Negresses. The Chigroes are a tough, forgotten race. They look down on the Negroes and the Chinese look down on them. One day they may become a nuisance. They’ve got some of the intelligence of the Chinese and most of the vices of the black man. The police have a lot of trouble with them.”

    In 2003, during dotcom crash I attempted to relocate to Florida and for a bit I lived in an InTown Suites, a national chain of extended stay motels. It was quite an exposure to what I termed "marginally or partially homeless". I met and became friends with a young Puerto Rican and his chubby wife. He had just gotten out of penitentiary. He made this sort of astute observation that stuck with me and my interpretation of it has change with time. The hotel had a few white women living with "mixed" children, one of whom was quite up in the middle of our area and social circle. And the young child was horrible.

    He said, "I never knew many mixes 'til I went to jail. Lot of mixes in jail."

    My current explanation is genetic: The violence, lack of impulse control and empathy of blacks mated with much the same lack of judgement, future sense, time preference, selfishness of, often, lower status white women. She often also possesses heritable piss poor judgement skills that can lead to consistent exposure to 'flight' situations that caused mood disorders.

    When I was down there in SW Florida, the whole #TeamBlackGuy thing was quite vogue. I can't imagine it bodes well for the area in the next few years as the mix children come of age and become an ever larger percentage of young adults down there. I would think the girls would do better than the boys. But the boys will be problematic.

    I live in the South (don't hold it against me) and that type of hypersensitivity is very common among blacks in the workplace. I once saw a black guy go to management because a white coworker, who was an Army veteran, had a "Freedom isn't free" sign on his desk and the black guy claimed this was saying that blacks didn't deserve to be free, therefore the guy was racist. My current black coworkers openly talk about looking for reasons to sue the company and you have to be very careful what you say around them. To make matters worse, there is a TV in our office and it is tuned to CNN 24/7. The last year has been very interesting to say the least. I've had the non-pleasure of watching Ferguson, Baltimore and Charleston unfold with them in real time. I work for a good company that pays well, has good benefits, and a lot of the blacks have college degrees, but they are still angry and hostile.

    Oh yeah! A few years ago one of the custodians at my workplace terrorized me for months. He was so obsessed with what I thought of Blacks that he could not stay away from me and he did almost zero work. He would spend all his time hanging out by my cubicle testing” my opinions on Blacks by telling me stories to see my reaction to them. He would regularly engage in freak outs because I played a blues song, or any song featuring a banjo ( I love Doc Watson) on YouTube. He would freak out over anything to do with fried chicken. One time he told me that some guy we worked with looked like Jack Black and I joked that all Whites must look alike to him. “You calling me ignorant, I ain’t ignorant, you jus’ racist!” Then he ran around the room yelling that I was racist. He tried to enlist our Chinese co-workers in a mob attack against me, but they just stared slack-jawed at him. One later told me that she found him frightening.

    Another Black worker told me that “He’s just an old crackhead,” and “You don’t need to conversate with him, he ain’t right”. We were all afraid he was going to come in shooting one day and I knew that I’d be the second victim after his boss Uncle Tom.

    So much of the 'progressive' world view is simply Christianity shorn of the supernatural God figure. Its all there: we are born sinners who must constantly assauge our guilt for the wrongdoing of our people if we are to achieve redemption, the opportunity for moral piety and status competitions over who is more holy, the persecution of heretics and non-believers, flagellant moral masochism etc etc.
    This guy's warped imagining of racism in everyday speech and actions is also an echo of past Christian excess - the perception of others as being possessed by demons, to be witches or inherently evil, no matter how innocently their actions and words can be explained.
    As Spengler said 'Christianity is the grandmother of Bolshevism.' Now that Christianity has been all but expunged from public life, we're left with that hideous grandchild.

    The insight about Christianity is good; but it’s just the clothes we wear. Humans all over the world, mostly non-Christian, have all of these social and psychological pathologies. That suggests that humans, intrinsically, have a tendency to show these kinds of pathologies. In turn, that suggests that religion represents an attempt to channel and control these pathologies, religion is not the source or cause.

    Which is one problem I have with atheists. Yes, there are people who are “so smart” and “so rational” that they do not “need” religion. Fine. But most people are neither, and religion is an explanation, consolation and structure for controlling all the weird stuff our minds create. Secular types on the other hand, from their summit of reason and secular humanism, are completely blind to their shortfalls, because, hey, I’m being rational, how could I be doing anything irrational?

    In America we have about 15 million illegal immigrants and a huge underground drug trade. Both are largely the result of a border our government will not secure. If our government won't stop the illegal immigrants and won't stop the drug trade, why should we trust it to stop the proliferation of illegal firearms among criminals?

    When the government manages to get those two problems under control, perhaps maybe I'll consider allowing them to take away my Constitutional right to own a firearm.

    Speaking of Constitutional rights, guns, and illegal firearms: our Supreme Court has ruled that illegal immigrants have all sorts of Constitutional rights which appear nowhere in the Constitution, like the right to free public education. I'll be damned if they're going to invent Constitutional rights for illegals while denying me, a native-born US citizen, a right explicitly enumerated in the Constitution.

    "So apparently the only way for a white person not to be guilty of the capital crime of white privilege (other than going trans-racial like Rachel Dolezal) is to grovel on your knees and apologize every day for your white skin privilege. Check your privilege! All the time. Never say “field” or serve watermelon lest you cause some offended black to justly take revenge on your cracker ass"

    no no no...grovelling on your knees and apologizing for your white privilege is also 100% unforgivable, unbearable, and perhaps worthy of death, as follows...

    number one, you got to have your white privilege on in the first place...

    number two, you then give it up AS IF IT WERE NOTHING when your having-of-it meant so much suffering for black folk, and it was utterly unattainable NOW YOU CAST IT ASIDE like a used condom, thus slighting the centuried misery of black folk - how do you think that makes them feel, you got to be better than them initially, and now, by casting it aside you show that YOU ARE TOO GOOD to be better than them...you have now promulgated white supremacy on the meta-level...the renunciation of white privilege is merely another further horrifying display of white privilege...after all, black folk can't ever renounce their own white privilege, now, can they...

    number three, now that you are grovelling and apologizing continuously, your activity-as-importunity is still somehow imperiously demanding various tributes from black people i.e. that you should be forgiven, or, that your activity should be acknowledged, or that it make a difference somehow, or, that you should be killed last, or, that you should be allowed to kill other white people before being killed or killing yourself (or however white-devil-Vernichtung sets up), yadda-yadda-yadda...your so-called submission is all about YOU YOU YOU, it never even sees black folk, you are still (through sublimation) the white master blankly giving orders to the black bots

    (long story short, the existence of white people is the original sin, and the complete annihilation of white people is the one-and-only, necessary-and-sufficient, categorically-imperative affirmative action)

    Their customs concerning the dead are particularly interesting. They consider earth and fire to both be sacred things that should not be polluted by the unclean dead. They therefore leave the dead exposed on the flat rooftops of special buildings ("towers of silence") so that they can be eaten by vultures and bleached by the sun and wind.

    Zoroastrians are cool. Couple years back I read of horrifying difficulties the Parsis were having vis-a-vis their traditional corpse-disposal-via-exposure-to-vultures atop their Towers Of Silence. Evidently there is some cheap antibiotic that the modern-thinking Indian agriculturalists tend to firmly dish out to their livestock, whether they need to or not, because they can. Sadly when the local vultures feed from such treated animal corpses, the vultures perish from the antibiotic (or some metabolite, I forget) which the vulture kidneys can’t handle. So this huge vulture shortage ensues, and consequently the corpses of the dead Parsis don’t go away in the approved manner but instead pile-up on the roof creating what has to be a dispiriting spectacle. The system is failing.

    I’m sure the comments are excellent but I want to comment something that struck me from this article before I’m influenced by the gleanings of others.

    It’s not good to see yourself as a victim, or as a loser or to focus on your infirmities or lackings.

    Of course we all fall somewhere on this spectrum, from people like this gay black shooter fella (and plenty more like him) who genuinely view themselves as perpetual victims and loathe themselves for it and suffer for it on a momentary basis (and kill for it too, which is more incidental to my comment) to people like Donald Trump who can’t remember ever having thought that he was wrong and should apologize to any of the people he destroyed (or fired) but who sees himself as a victim of some form of baldness to the point that his achillees heel is his hair, which he constantly “proves” to people that it’s “my hair”. He feels actual shame about the thing and comes across as a laughing stock when he talks about it. Other than that however he genuinely sees himself as a winner and – pretty much everyone else, relatively speaking – as a loser.

    The primary reason I’ve never opened a legitimate personal injury lawsuit despite having at least two cases where I had an incontrovertial case is due to adhd type factors and other environmental ones hidden in the mysts of my family’s recent history but, the CONSCIOUS reason why I never openend a legitimate case (in particular when a simple medical procedure had terrible consequences (since abated) is because I’m not interested in perpetuating the malady in my mind. And indeed, by not pursuing it further I was healed in an almost christian-sciencey manner. Had I have had to go to court however to prove the infirmity and pain (after some couple of years of the case winding its way through the system) I don’t think I’d have been healed in 2 months or perhaps not even healed for life.

    That isn’t t say that Elizabeth Warren type of “playing” the victim is a bad idea (or, my favorite example, George Soros, a “holocaust survivor” who was an actual holocaust PERPETRATOR – the things he’s SAID about his activities are enough to try him for war crimes, one can only imagine what he’s done but hasn’t said). PRETENDING that you’re a victim, if it’s all just a joke to you anyway or if you’re blessed with some form of sociopathy, so that you get the goodies is an intelligent thing to do that will bring you all kinds of goodies. BELIEVING that you’re a pitiful victim leads down a road of anguish that, as with this weirdo, ends with bullet holes in bodies, including your own.

    Believe that things are going well and that you’re a wininer (or at least think more often about those fields where you objectively are one) and you’re likely to actually become even more of a winner (“To him that hath”) but, far more importantly, you’re likely to enjoy a life with less internal anguish, a.k.a. A better life.

    "Flanagan even declared that ­7-Eleven was racist because it sold watermelon-flavored Slurpees."

    Given the sainting of Michael Brown, lies about 'hands up don't shoot', myth of white college 'rape culture', UVA lunacy, micro-aggression nuttiness, trigger alert nuttiness, mattress girl silliness, unarmed thugs, baby with skittles, paranoia about every confed flag(even to the point of censoring dukes of hazard), and etc, was Flanagan any crazier?

    Only in having used a gun. Otherwise, his lunacy was very much in line with current culture where colleges say even words like 'fathering', 'mothering', 'american', and 'homosexual' are offensive.

    And before we denounce Flanagan, consider all the 'rational' and 'sane' people who see nukes, 'terrorists', and WMD everywhere to warrant whole invasion/destruction of other nations. while they never see Israel's nukes or its slaughter of Palestinians.

    US is currently going postal on Russia, a nation that means no harm, because Jews see 'new hitler' in the ban on 'gay' parades.

    And consider how Holder had to comb thru every square inch of Ferguson to find the incriminating 'watermelon'.

    From the NY Daily News article:

    Flanagan’s apartment was dark, dingy and decoratively desolate. While police raided the pad, they found a puddle of cat urine on the kitchen floor and cat feces on the balcony.

    Sounds more like he left a cat alive and it its business after being left alone for too long.

    "I will concede that the white guilt aspect of multiculturalism is probably supported by the “sin” and sinner aspect of christianity."

    It isn't Christianity converted into Leftism - it's simple, age-old scapegoating, and about using psychological guilt as a political weapon. It's also a covert form of racism - it allows people to be racists under the pretense of holding whites accountable for crimes they didn't commit, and which their ancestors often didn't even commit. It's like the Jews who blame Americans and Britons for the Holocaust despite the fact that both countries were responsible for Nazi Germany's defeat.

There is a huge sexual market penalty for White men groveling to the PC gods, this just in women value most dangerous, rebel, outlaw, violent, unpredictable men. A boring office drone goes home every night Dilbert like to his … pr0n collection. A violent, no-F’s given, swinging D- man goes home to a hot babe every night. A different one if he’s really the cheese.

    The more Black guys take offense, the more incentive for White guys to take counter offense and a page out of Donald Trump. Particularly if they are independent contractors not directly beholden to HR, or surreptitiously sabotage various aggrieved, anti-White race baiters. Either way, you are looking at dysfunctional organizations more concerned with internal infighting that survival much less victory against competitive opponents. That is the basis for much of the “virtual” gig world and Uber like companies. No need to fight the White race baiter when you can move your organization out to the cloud so people never see each other, and being “virtual” you are “cool” and thus exempt from EEOC, HR, Diversity Religious requirements.

    TL:DR: places with Vester Flanagans will die, places with distributed cloud run White/Asian men will rule.

    [One exception to the White race baiting seems to be the NFL, where Black guys seem to get along more with Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, than say Russell Wilson. The talent of guys like Manning and Brady is pretty obvious. Just look at them on the field and you think Canton Ohio. But I think Black guys have a problem with the RGIIIs and Wilsons because they pencil themselves in and figure they can do better.]

    I live in the South (don't hold it against me) and that type of hypersensitivity is very common among blacks in the workplace. I once saw a black guy go to management because a white coworker, who was an Army veteran, had a "Freedom isn't free" sign on his desk and the black guy claimed this was saying that blacks didn't deserve to be free, therefore the guy was racist. My current black coworkers openly talk about looking for reasons to sue the company and you have to be very careful what you say around them.

    A white female friend, a former on-camera personality on a local station who was let go when she reached a certain age, as well as a firmly-closeted lesbian, excoriated me for blaming the victims. I said I wasn't, but I was blaming "nice HR ladies". She had a bigger problem with that comment, saying that HR departments were not mostly female. I proceeded to introduce her to the facts available to anyone wanting them (about 70% of large HR departments are women, Freida Kapor, etc.), to which she responded by calling me a dick and blocking me!

    There are none so blind as those that will not see.

    Sure, HR is mostly female. I fail to see how HR did anything wrong here.

    In 2003, during dotcom crash I attempted to relocate to Florida and for a bit I lived in an InTown Suites, a national chain of extended stay motels. It was quite an exposure to what I termed “marginally or partially homeless”. I met and became friends with a young Puerto Rican and his chubby wife. He had just gotten out of penitentiary. He made this sort of astute observation that stuck with me and my interpretation of it has change with time. The hotel had a few white women living with “mixed” children, one of whom was quite up in the middle of our area and social circle. And the young child was horrible.

    He said, “I never knew many mixes ’til I went to jail. Lot of mixes in jail.”

    My current explanation is genetic: The violence, lack of impulse control and empathy of blacks mated with much the same lack of judgement, future sense, time preference, selfishness of, often, lower status white women. She often also possesses heritable piss poor judgement skills that can lead to consistent exposure to ‘flight’ situations that caused mood disorders.

    When I was down there in SW Florida, the whole #TeamBlackGuy thing was quite vogue. I can’t imagine it bodes well for the area in the next few years as the mix children come of age and become an ever larger percentage of young adults down there.

You will be hung---no, make that "hanged" (death threats should always be grammatically correct)---from the nearest lamp post, post haste. (No, make that "soon." Not only do you want to avoid having too many "posts" in a sentence, lest someone accuse you of "going postal," but having "post" and "hung" in the same message might get Beavis and Butthead all worked up to the point where they start making endless puns and engaging in mass murder, since the connection is so obviously clear.)

    BTW with all this talk about the racial connotations of watermelon, I'm a little surprised that no one has pointed out that watermelons have black seeds. And what do you do when you get a black seed in your mouth? Spit it out, of course. Except for the seedless variety, which is proof positive that there is a conspiracy afoot to remove all blacks from American society. Racist either way, no matter how you cut it.

    "So apparently the only way for a white person not to be guilty of the capital crime of white privilege (other than going trans-racial like Rachel Dolezal) is to grovel on your knees and apologize every day for your white skin privilege. Check your privilege! All the time. Never say “field” or serve watermelon lest you cause some offended black to justly take revenge on your cracker ass"

    no no no...grovelling on your knees and apologizing for your white privilege is also 100% unforgivable, unbearable, and perhaps worthy of death, as follows...

    number one, you got to have your white privilege on in the first place...

    number two, you then give it up AS IF IT WERE NOTHING when your having-of-it meant so much suffering for black folk, and it was utterly unattainable NOW YOU CAST IT ASIDE like a used condom, thus slighting the centuried misery of black folk - how do you think that makes them feel, you got to be better than them initially, and now, by casting it aside you show that YOU ARE TOO GOOD to be better than them...you have now promulgated white supremacy on the meta-level...the renunciation of white privilege is merely another further horrifying display of white privilege...after all, black folk can't ever renounce their own white privilege, now, can they...

    number three, now that you are grovelling and apologizing continuously, your activity-as-importunity is still somehow imperiously demanding various tributes from black people i.e. that you should be forgiven, or, that your activity should be acknowledged, or that it make a difference somehow, or, that you should be killed last, or, that you should be allowed to kill other white people before being killed or killing yourself (or however white-devil-Vernichtung sets up), yadda-yadda-yadda...your so-called submission is all about YOU YOU YOU, it never even sees black folk, you are still (through sublimation) the white master blankly giving orders to the black bots

    (long story short, the existence of white people is the original sin, and the complete annihilation of white people is the one-and-only, necessary-and-sufficient, categorically-imperative affirmative action)

    The message is clear: The only behavior that can avoid problems with blacks, is to avoid blacks.

    The trick is to avoid admitting it.

    He appeared to be a mulatto from the "talented tenth" - his father was a college dean. So he must have grown up in the toxic SJW environment of the college campus. Mulattoes can be the most dangerous kind of Negro because they sometimes combine the violence and amorality of the black with (some) of the superior intelligence of the white, depending on how the genetic dice roll. On a good day you get Colin Powell and on a bad day you get Vester. I won't say what kind of day it was when Obama was born.

    Flanagan apparently didn't originally intend to kill himself and had formulated a getaway plan with wigs and disguises, etc. It wasn't a very good plan but it was far beyond the planning abilities of say a Michael Brown or a Trayvon Martin who couldn't play the chess game even one move ahead.

    Arthur Chu claims to see anti-Asian racism everywhere from White people. He has culturally adopted African American style victim hood which claims to experience racism from White people everyday or almost everyday. Arthur Chu is definitely not a Model Minority. He is Asian on the outside but is a NAM on the outside. He is definitely not an Honorary White like Twinkie the Chinese guy who posts here on The Unz.

    I live in the South (don't hold it against me) and that type of hypersensitivity is very common among blacks in the workplace. I once saw a black guy go to management because a white coworker, who was an Army veteran, had a "Freedom isn't free" sign on his desk and the black guy claimed this was saying that blacks didn't deserve to be free, therefore the guy was racist. My current black coworkers openly talk about looking for reasons to sue the company and you have to be very careful what you say around them. To make matters worse, there is a TV in our office and it is tuned to CNN 24/7. The last year has been very interesting to say the least. I've had the non-pleasure of watching Ferguson, Baltimore and Charleston unfold with them in real time. I work for a good company that pays well, has good benefits, and a lot of the blacks have college degrees, but they are still angry and hostile.

    I worked under a Black man once. One day I returned to the classroom after lunch, and there he was by himself in front of the computer — literally whistling Dixie!

    He was a former DL under Lovie Smith and John Cooper at Tulsa. He told me stories about his trip to play at BYU; a White kid ran the opening kickoff back for a TD because the Tulsa players were already winded at that altitude. His recounting of the story was hilarious.

    We had a lot of fun hazing my co-worker — a pretty and pleasant Black girl just out of college — about her boyfriend, #29, who was still playing corner back at her Sun Belt alma mater. Then she moved on to one of the Dallas Cowboys’ starting corners, but in between she was sweet on me. Obviously, there’s no accounting for taste! I should feel honored, I suppose, since her Facebook page shows she has almost no White friends. I did like her quite a bit.

His opinion stems from decades of research into the root causes of schizophrenia. “Textbooks today still make silly statements that schizophrenia has always been around, it’s about the same incidence all over the world, and it’s existed since time immemorial,” he says. “The epidemiology literature contradicts that completely.” In fact, he says, schizophrenia did not rise in prevalence until the latter half of the 18th century, when for the first time people in Paris and London started keeping cats as pets. The so-called cat craze began among “poets and left-wing avant-garde Greenwich Village types,” says Torrey, but the trend spread rapidly—and coinciding with that development, the incidence of schizophrenia soared.

    When it comes to riots you have to hand it to the Koreans. Color coordinated riot sticks on the protesters’ part and every now and then somebody has to throw in some TKD kicks. It is awesome. I have no idea why they riot. They are living in a paradise compared to the North or China or Vietnam but riot they do. And they have some deadly politics.

    from my (European) perspective I wouldn't say it was cowardly, to be honest it makes sense to me. I 'm not saying 'it couldn't happen here', just that it would be very, very unlikely for such a person to have a gun here; and a gun + this kind of person made killing that girl so, so easy - she & the cameraman had no chance at all. So I can understand why he might focus on that & it seems a little off to call him a coward for that at this time especially.

    America is very different from Europe, I suppose. Making guns illegal in America would be pointless, there are 100s of millions of guns in America today, and they aren´t going away.

    When I was mugged, I seethed with anger towards the mugger. My mind didn´t think about a moralistic view on guns, I hated the man who threatened my life and took my possessions. That is a normal anger, that Americans have lost for some strangereason(undoubtedly related to political correctness).

    Thank god nobody in my family has ever been murdered, so I can´t exactly know the feeling, but I can imagine it somewhat. I know if my daughter\relative was murdered I woundn´t worry about guns. Guns are tool, and a man using it for evil is to blame. I would hate the murderer, especially if the STATED reason was blind hateful racism. Her father shouldn´t be kissing MSM *ss, he should be angry at a vile murderer.

    Sure, HR is mostly female. I fail to see how HR did anything wrong here.

    I also don't see the point of this story. The NY Post article seemed reasonable. Benign every day comments were bizarrely interpreted as racist and used to fuel the murder. That seems reasonable.

    I seems to me that one of the functions of HR is to weed out the bad actors applying for jobs at their workplaces. This guy left a trail of people bewildered by his lunacy, and reporting it to HR, at seemingly every stop in his employment history.

    But for HR to document his emotional issues might have caused him to be blacklisted, and we can’t have that!

    The problem is that you cannot give someone a bad reference without risking a lawsuit. At my last job we were told to do no more than confirm employment.

    The reticence of former employers to report negative information about their ex-employees to the latter's potential new employers is grounded in the (not-unreasonable) fears of the former over the possibility of their being sued by the ex-employees who thereby lose out on new employment. That just happens to involve Black ex-employees at disproportionately high rates, especially since Blacks, unlike many Whites in the same situation, always can make at least a prima facie claim of illegal discrimination's being the motivating factor for the dissemination of negative information.

    Many Asians just can't operate safely in a three-dimensional world. They can't even walk down the sidewalk without crashing into other pedestrians. It's incredible!

    I walk around Toronto a lot, and one of the things that irritates me to no end are east Asians bumping in to you or abruptly changing direction to walk in to you as if you are invisible. You have to be on your guard to swerve quickly otherwise a pedestrian collision will occur. It’s a very strange habit, I generally don’t see this in other people. I wonder why this is though, I like east Asians, but why do so many do that? I have heard many others comment on this as well, including people that have gone over to teach in China.

He was crossing the street toward me and as he came across the sidewalk he headed right for me. I couldn't believe it I tried to move out of his way but he ran into me from the side and tripped me with his leg. Unbelievable, I was a foot taller than him but he couldn't see me???. It is a regular topic of conversation every morning among my coworkers along with the rage over Chinese drivers. They wait to make turns until the light turns green and then they cut pedestrians off. They seriously don't know they can turn on the red and they have no concept of pedestrians having the right of way.

    According to the Police Assessment Resource Centre (PARC) report, the number of Latino people bitten by LASD dogs went up 30 per cent between 2004 and 2012 and the number of African Americans bitten rose 33 per cent.

    Also noted by the report is the low or non-existent incidence of dog bites in affluent areas with smaller minority populations.

    No, it's the general liberal opinion. We wouldn't have all these shootings if we didn't have all these guns. The problem is the guns.

    Truthfully, European 'diversity' crime is limited to knife crime by the rarity of guns (so even race is not a complete explanation, though yes, they are willfully ignoring that). But the guns are already there--we're not going to be able to remove them all. (Cold dead hands, and all that.) So, you know...I'd rather the honest citizens have guns, since the crooks already have them.

  163. It’s a real phenomenon. Lots of dogs treat Blacks differently.

    Probably nurture, and not specific to blacks. Dogs raised by whites (with few blacks around) see blacks as odd and therefore threatening, and vice versa.

    Are you joking or you serious? Are you talking about police dogs? Because they attack thugs regardless of race, ethnicity, or color.

    No, he’s serious. Well, racist dogs are a real thing, anyway.

    I suppose you could say that a dog owned by a white person picks up on their “owners” inherent racism or fear or something, and reacts to a black person based upon what the dog’s perceives as their owner’s agitation.

    Maybe. But the behavior applies to dogs with owners nowhere to be seen. The fact that blacks have a very different skin color, and a very different smell, would probably be exhibit A. Dogs usually establish their owners as the baseline, and if they aren’t accustomed to the differences…

    But I’ve seen this effect before. Blacks, at least the ones I’ve known are very uncomfortable around dogs. And I think the dog picks up on that.

    That too (everybody knows the best way to get a dog to give chase is to run), but again, it’s not specific to blacks. Dogs raised in the ghetto don’t much like whites (I don’t suppose too many of the commenters here have clocked much time in the ghetto).

    Back in the day, Black comedians like Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock often poked fun at Black hypersensitivity to racism. Rock had a skit where he played a Black militant who claimed, among other things, that the White Man created the racist game of pool where the white ball knocks all the colored balls off the table.

    Assuming you’re correct, one ripped off the gag from the other, because Murphy put it into a scene in Boomerang (with Martin Lawrence delivering).

    The power to select and enforce magic words and things is nothing more than the Battered Woman Syndrome on a national, racial scale:

    Husband gets mean drunk, comes home late. He walks in, finds something to get enraged about and slugs his meek little wife: “Goddammit, woman! You KNOW I hate it when you serve tea in a plastic glass!” She knows it really is her fault and promises to do better.

    Yep. I’ve been saying this for years. It occurs that being made bitch in a battered woman scenario is the sort of thing that happens when a hostile elite takes over your culture, and your men collectively acquiesce to taking off the pants. In other words, there’s always somebody in charge, and people who sell egalitarian snake oil for this “malady” almost certainly just want to wear the pants.

    It’s interesting what you people say about blacks here the Japanese say the same about koreans, well except for the dumb part. They attribute the higher crime rate in Osaka to the koreans there. And Korean protests are a lot more violent compared to Japanese ones. And compared to Japanese now koreans are just more chaotic and violent, and also a lot more casually corrupt and ruthless.

    Interesting how? Seems about as interesting as saying Bob once said things about Joe that sound a lot like things Jane once said about Sue. I.e., not interesting at all.

    Calvinism

    Generally speaking, the Calvinists maintain that the sin of Adam was imputed (made to count for) to the whole human race. This is maintained largely regarding the concept of Federal Headship. This is a theological term for one person representing another person or group. Consider Hebrews 7:7-10,

    But without any dispute the lesser is blessed by the greater. 8And in this case mortal men receive tithes, but in that case one receives them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives on. 9And, so to speak, through Abraham even Levi, who received tithes, paid tithes, 10for he was still in the loins of his father when Melchizedek met him.

    Levi was a descendant of Abraham; but because he was still in the loins (seed) of his Father Abraham, when Abraham paid tithes to Melchizedek, Levi is said to have paid them also. The concept is that Abraham represented his descendants, and the tithes were counted to Levi as well.

    Therefore, if Adam's sin was imputed to his descendants, all of them are guilty of sin and justly deserve punishment.

    Or because ...:

    5. Now that they have warned us that they take offense at watermelon and fried chicken for some unknown and apparently unknowable reason (but oddly enough, not grits, collard greens, and black-eyed peas) our serving them watermelon and fried chicken means we are deliberately trying to hurt their feelings.

    Hell, I invited a Black stranger back to my house to take some watermelon seedlings after I met him and struck up a conversation at the local nursery. And, since I work at home, I sometimes see the garbage men as they collect my trash. Once, I asked them to wait while I went inside to get some more stuff that needed to go.

If they lived in a small southern town they would ignore him altogether unless they were social outcasts looking for an accepting in-group and thought that punching at the broader culture made them look cool. If they live in the North they want to communicate to their sophisticated friends that they are the 'right' kind of white, the kind who can be vouched for at the country club. The kind who avoids blacks by buying a house in the right neighborhood but panders to them otherwise. If they are opportunity seeking evangelicals or their close cousin SJWs they are looking for someone to save and, like the abolitionists, who better? If they are political or academic opportunists they are calculating tactical advantages to be obtained by bashing middle and lower class whites by taking up the cause of 'underprivileged' blacks. If they are the rare populist or realists they despise cant and will, with caution, express their disdain for him outright.

    [gawker] Why Are Dogs Racist? Canine Experts Speak

    Pa. police dog suspended for potential racism


    [Daily Mail]
    Not colorblind: New report shows 'racist' LA police dogs only bite blacks and Latinos
    ...
    A new report on the Canine Special Detail of the LA Sheriff’s Department (LASD) shows that police dogs bite a disproportionately large number of minority suspects.

    According to the Police Assessment Resource Centre (PARC) report, the number of Latino people bitten by LASD dogs went up 30 per cent between 2004 and 2012 and the number of African Americans bitten rose 33 per cent.
    ...
    Also noted by the report is the low or non-existent incidence of dog bites in affluent areas with smaller minority populations.

    Everyone in LA County is a minority. There are almost twice as many Mexicans as Whites, yet this moron Alex Greig claims that Whites at 27% are a majority.

  181. @Svigor

    It’s a real phenomenon. Lots of dogs treat Blacks differently.
     
    Probably nurture, and not specific to blacks. Dogs raised by whites (with few blacks around) see blacks as odd and therefore threatening, and vice versa.

    Are you joking or you serious? Are you talking about police dogs? Because they attack thugs regardless of race, ethnicity, or color.
     
    No, he's serious. Well, racist dogs are a real thing, anyway.

    I suppose you could say that a dog owned by a white person picks up on their “owners” inherent racism or fear or something, and reacts to a black person based upon what the dog’s perceives as their owner’s agitation.
     
    Maybe. But the behavior applies to dogs with owners nowhere to be seen. The fact that blacks have a very different skin color, and a very different smell, would probably be exhibit A. Dogs usually establish their owners as the baseline, and if they aren't accustomed to the differences...

    But I’ve seen this effect before. Blacks, at least the ones I’ve known are very uncomfortable around dogs. And I think the dog picks up on that.
     
    That too (everybody knows the best way to get a dog to give chase is to run), but again, it's not specific to blacks. Dogs raised in the ghetto don't much like whites (I don't suppose too many of the commenters here have clocked much time in the ghetto).

    Back in the day, Black comedians like Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock often poked fun at Black hypersensitivity to racism. Rock had a skit where he played a Black militant who claimed, among other things, that the White Man created the racist game of pool where the white ball knocks all the colored balls off the table.
     
    Assuming you're correct, one ripped off the gag from the other, because Murphy put it into a scene in Boomerang (with Martin Lawrence delivering).

    The power to select and enforce magic words and things is nothing more than the Battered Woman Syndrome on a national, racial scale:

    Husband gets mean drunk, comes home late. He walks in, finds something to get enraged about and slugs his meek little wife: “Goddammit, woman! You KNOW I hate it when you serve tea in a plastic glass!” She knows it really is her fault and promises to do better.
     
    Yep. I've been saying this for years. It occurs that being made bitch in a battered woman scenario is the sort of thing that happens when a hostile elite takes over your culture, and your men collectively acquiesce to taking off the pants. In other words, there's always somebody in charge, and people who sell egalitarian snake oil for this "malady" almost certainly just want to wear the pants.

    It’s interesting what you people say about blacks here the Japanese say the same about koreans, well except for the dumb part. They attribute the higher crime rate in Osaka to the koreans there. And Korean protests are a lot more violent compared to Japanese ones. And compared to Japanese now koreans are just more chaotic and violent, and also a lot more casually corrupt and ruthless.
     
    Interesting how? Seems about as interesting as saying Bob once said things about Joe that sound a lot like things Jane once said about Sue. I.e., not interesting at all.

    His referencing Zionism may be slightly off-topic but I don’t find fault with his comment. What he says is perfectly true.

    I walk around Toronto a lot, and one of the things that irritates me to no end are east Asians bumping in to you or abruptly changing direction to walk in to you as if you are invisible. You have to be on your guard to swerve quickly otherwise a pedestrian collision will occur. It's a very strange habit, I generally don't see this in other people. I wonder why this is though, I like east Asians, but why do so many do that? I have heard many others comment on this as well, including people that have gone over to teach in China.

    This happens to me every day too. Asians from Asia stare and head straight for you. They also are the least aware people on the planet. I was walking to work and this Chinese guy and I were the only 2 people on the street at 7:30 in the morning. He was crossing the street toward me and as he came across the sidewalk he headed right for me. I couldn’t believe it I tried to move out of his way but he ran into me from the side and tripped me with his leg. Unbelievable, I was a foot taller than him but he couldn’t see me???. It is a regular topic of conversation every morning among my coworkers along with the rage over Chinese drivers. They wait to make turns until the light turns green and then they cut pedestrians off. They seriously don’t know they can turn on the red and they have no concept of pedestrians having the right of way.

    The scooters were named such in reference to the buzzing sound of their engines.

I still can’t say this was like a Mohammed Atta/ticket counter situation (a damned-if-you-do-or-don’t crossroads biased toward passivity & withholding judgment); Flanagan might be the outlier who just doesn’t flag any of the 2015 social danger metrics until it’s too late.

    Calvinism

    Generally speaking, the Calvinists maintain that the sin of Adam was imputed (made to count for) to the whole human race. This is maintained largely regarding the concept of Federal Headship. This is a theological term for one person representing another person or group. Consider Hebrews 7:7-10,

    But without any dispute the lesser is blessed by the greater. 8And in this case mortal men receive tithes, but in that case one receives them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives on. 9And, so to speak, through Abraham even Levi, who received tithes, paid tithes, 10for he was still in the loins of his father when Melchizedek met him.

    Levi was a descendant of Abraham; but because he was still in the loins (seed) of his Father Abraham, when Abraham paid tithes to Melchizedek, Levi is said to have paid them also. The concept is that Abraham represented his descendants, and the tithes were counted to Levi as well.

    Therefore, if Adam’s sin was imputed to his descendants, all of them are guilty of sin and justly deserve punishment.

    In America we have about 15 million illegal immigrants and a huge underground drug trade. Both are largely the result of a border our government will not secure. If our government won’t stop the illegal immigrants and won’t stop the drug trade, why should we trust it to stop the proliferation of illegal firearms among criminals?

    When the government manages to get those two problems under control, perhaps maybe I’ll consider allowing them to take away my Constitutional right to own a firearm.

    Speaking of Constitutional rights, guns, and illegal firearms: our Supreme Court has ruled that illegal immigrants have all sorts of Constitutional rights which appear nowhere in the Constitution, like the right to free public education. I’ll be damned if they’re going to invent Constitutional rights for illegals while denying me, a native-born US citizen, a right explicitly enumerated in the Constitution.

    Has anyone pointed out yet that what Flanagan was doing was different from Ta Nehisi Coates’ hysterical reaction to having his son touched on the escalator?

    People who admire Ta Nehisi should be asked why it make sense to praise someone who writes about his sick, violent hatred of whites while condemning someone who acts on his logic.

    After all, Ta Nehisi says the sole mission of the white race is to destroy black bodies. If that is true, how would Ta Nehisis explain that what the Virginia shooter did was wrong? Wasn't he acting in self defense, according to Ta Nehisi?

    I think the answer is that educated whites don't take blacks seriously enough to object to their violent tirades. They regard them as unruly spoiled children whom it is easier to indulge than to discipline.

    “People who admire Ta Nehisi should be asked why it make sense to praise someone who writes about his sick, violent hatred of whites while condemning someone who acts on his logic.”

    It isn’t Christianity converted into Leftism – it’s simple, age-old scapegoating, and about using psychological guilt as a political weapon. It’s also a covert form of racism – it allows people to be racists under the pretense of holding whites accountable for crimes they didn’t commit, and which their ancestors often didn’t even commit. It’s like the Jews who blame Americans and Britons for the Holocaust despite the fact that both countries were responsible for Nazi Germany’s defeat.

    Or because ...:

    5. Now that they have warned us that they take offense at watermelon and fried chicken for some unknown and apparently unknowable reason (but oddly enough, not grits, collard greens, and black-eyed peas) our serving them watermelon and fried chicken means we are deliberately trying to hurt their feelings.

    The power to select and enforce magic words and things is nothing more than the Battered Woman Syndrome on a national, racial scale:

    Husband gets mean drunk, comes home late. He walks in, finds something to get enraged about and slugs his meek little wife: "Goddammit, woman! You KNOW I hate it when you serve tea in a plastic glass!" She knows it really is her fault and promises to do better.

    “If you had a new black coworker over for dinner very few of you (if any) would serve watermelon or fried chicken.
    How would you explain your decision to a reindeer herder from Lapland.”

    Well, this is how I would handle that ticklish problem. I would explain to that reindeer herder from Lapland in English (and hope he understood English since I speak neither Finnish nor Sami) that I seldom make fried chicken even for myself because it is too much bother and messy and I seldom eat watermelon because I prefer cantaloupe in season and rarely serve it when I have guests for dinner, regardless of color (of the guests, that is, not the cantaloupe, which is generally of the orange hue). Heaven forbid that cantaloupe should acquire any racial connotations because I certainly would not want to experience any guilt while I savor its tasty orange flesh (other than John Boehner, I am not aware of any orange colored people, so I think I am pretty safe there). As tasty as fried chicken is, I prefer making a roast chicken instead because there is less work (and I came across a great recipe about 15 years ago; the secret is to cook it at 425 degrees and let it rest for 10 minutes after pulling it from the oven, not the traditional 350 degrees I learned back in the late 60’s–check out Craig Claiborne’s classic “NY Times Cook Book” at p. 185). If I got a craving for fried chicken, I would go out to the nearest Popeyes. (I have passed the nearest Popeyes literally hundred of times in the past 20+ years, and I always make a mental note that I should stop there one day, but that day still hasn’t arrived.) BTW whenever I have guests over for dinner, I usually serve roast leg of lamb (about 50% of the time) because it is easy to make and it’s delicious and my guests like it as much as I do (I don’t know how to explain that to a reindeer herder from Lapland, which doesn’t matter since I have never encountered such a fellow in my life).

  209. The Washington Post had an article on “perceived” racial bias in reporting the Roanoke killings by the black, gay man. (Earlier in this thread, I posted reports on how NPR’s “All Things Considered,” NBC Nightly News and even Fox News on the evening Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly Fox shows avoided use of race in describing the shooter.) This is one of the comments that was posted under the Washington Post article:

    It is not merely that “the right sees media bias” in the reporting of race-related crime, it is an established fact, as demonstrated repeatedly in other outlets. See, e.g., http://splashingrocks.blogspot.com/2013/08/media-m… Now, media (like the WP) suppressing the racial motive in black-on-white murders and other crimes has moved beyond mere bias to actual complicity. Indeed, the Post suppressed the race of the perp in reporting the hideous black-on-white murder of a police officer filling his gas tank in Texas only yesterday.”

    “Vespa” is Italian for “wasp”.

    The scooters were named such in reference to the buzzing sound of their engines.

    Random fact: Vespas were invented so women could ride them in skirts and without having to straddle a motorcycle in an unladylike fashion.

    At least these are things I once read.

    “At least these are things I once read.”

    Well, I just read the same things, so they must be true.

    Collective guilt of the entire human race for the fall of Adam. Original sin.
     
    Sure, but that's not what he said. He said, "our people", which is something other than all people.

    They’re not the same thing, but I think there’s a parallel.

    Maybe American cops and soldiers should learn from the korea army on how to mow down hippies and occupy wall Street types with coaxial 30 calibers mounted on m1 abrams too eh?

    Would have stopped the murders and rapes going on on a daily basis in their little cardboard and tarp compounds wouldn’t it?

    I suppose you could use rubber bullets but ricochets tend to go low and most of the rape victims were prone so you’d have to be careful.
