From my new column in Taki’s Mag azine:

Do Whites Have Civil Rights?

Steve Sailer

July 21, 2021

… Strange as it may seem, the Constitution, technically speaking, has not been abrogated in favor of the theories of Prof. Ibram X. Kendi. The Supreme Court can reinstate Constitutional principles such as equal protection whenever it chooses.

So, I am going to list a series of principles and actions that could help hold the country together peacefully. I’m not a lawyer, so I’m not going to engage in extended legal argumentation in support of them. You can hire lawyers to do that.

Many of these ideas are existing law, but have largely been forgotten. It is time for the Supreme Court to restate them in no uncertain terms.

And some of my proposals are not yet law but can be made so by judicial fiat.

The first principle must be that whites have civil rights. All antidiscrimination laws must protect whites as fully as nonwhites. The courts must articulate explicitly that whites are a protected class, same as any other race.

For example, the “hostile environment” case law that says you can’t harass students and workers on account of their race must protect white children and workers currently required to subject themselves to critical race theory harangues. CRT, wokeness, intersectionality, antiracism, social justice, or whatever you want to call it are all just euphemisms for racist harassment of whites, which is illegal.

Read the whole thing there.

  5. Awful. The lawyer-justices are part of the problem; and they always will be.

    Make the USG budget (no “off”) as small as possible; $75B per year sounds about right. Then, no matter how much suck is contained therein, it won’t affect 329.9M Americans.

    I believe that by getting the small government revolution started at the state level, e.g. a_p_e, we can embarrass Washington enough to get it to self-downsize.

    I don’t see how CRT is going to destroy the US. What scenarios are you thinking will play out? In what timeline?

    Ending affirmative action could cripple the country because the black middle class will be hit hard. Just think about how much worse blacks will be in America if they don’t have a middle class to guide them.

  7. SafeNow says:

    Brown vs. Board was 9-0, with the opinion written by the chief justice. These factors greatly enhanced its moral and legal authority. What Steve seeks would probably receive a 5-4 opinion, with 5 justices endorsing a general rule, while 4 justices wimp-out by writing a concurring opinion limiting the white rights to the narrow facts of the case. Advocates of unequal justice in America would then loudly proclaim victory; a divided court. In the shadow of this divided opinion, unequal justice would continue. In fact, it might be emboldened, and get worse.

  8. Will the majority on the Supreme Court step forward to save the country from racism and destruction by restoring the Constitution?

    Of course not. Fear of the FBI is the beginning of wisdom.

    The Grutter decision did not come with a time limit, only the usual SCOTUS vagary designed to give them cover for stapling and mutilating the constitution. It’s of the same family of weasel BS they always pull with 2A cases – “the defendant has an individual right to bear arms unless he yelled at his wife and police conducted their warrantless search on an odd-numbered Thursday while the defendant was wearing a green shirt within 1000 miles of a school”. The SC will punt on AA, because you cannot have people cowed into submission when laws are clearly stated and objectively enforced. That being said, I’m working on some elementary school textbooks which I think will become popular when CRT is the law of the land, and the general BLAMtifa platform is embedded in the standard curriculum.

    Not really.

    Hollywood traditionally made the FBI and the Marines the good guys and often made the CIA the bad guys, so in the 1990s the CIA sent Chase Brandon to Hollywood to help get movies made in which the CIA is the good guys. I reviewed the first movie to come out of this effort around 2002, with Al Pacino and that Irish kid who was supposed to be the next huge star.

    So, no, Ben Affleck is not a CIA agent. His movie Argo is based on a story that the CIA wanted told and he got some tours of CIA headquarters and the like to help him get in character, but basically it was the same thing the FBI has been doing with movie makers since maybe the 1930s.

  13. Yes! Whites must have civil rights. That would include pro-Whites or White advocates.

    This got me thinking about how the Supreme Court could play a role in saving the United States of America from breaking apart due to the surging tide of antiwhite racist hate emanating from many of its most powerful institutions.

    However, my people, White people, have a right to exist not because it helps save the USA or any other political construct, but simply for their own sake.

    Along with Wesley Yang’s piece, there was this in yesterday’s WSJ:

    A Deeper Look at Critical Race Theory
    The neo-Marxist movement rejects equal opportunity, merit and objectivity.
    William A. Galston

    In last week’s column about critical race theory, I said that I had barely scratched the surface of this complex movement. To dig deeper, I turned to a collection of essays by the movement’s founders and early adherents—“Critical Race Theory: The Key Writings That Formed the Movement”—published in 1996. Here is what I found in the volume and in an article by Kimberlé Crenshaw, one of the book’s editors and one of the movement’s most insightful thinkers.

    • Critical race theory denies the possibility of objectivity. As the volume’s editors state in their illuminating introduction, “Scholarship about race in America can never be written from a distance of detachment or with an attitude of objectivity. . . . Scholarship—the formal production, identification, and organization of what will be called ‘knowledge’—is inevitably political.” And politics is about power—specifically, about the struggle between those who seek to maintain oppressive hierarchies and those who seek to overturn them. Scholarship can be a powerful weapon in that struggle.

    [MORE]

    • The theory moves race to the center of our focus. As the editors put it, it aims to “recover and revitalize the radical tradition of race-consciousness,” a tradition “that was discarded when integration, assimilation and the ideal of colorblindness became the official norms of racial enlightenment.”

    • The founders of Critical Race Theory identified with Black Power movements much more than with those who were working for integration. This form of race-consciousness can’t be reduced to class-consciousness. Sen. Bernie Sanders, who understood the fight for equality as a class struggle, learned this lesson the hard way during his quest for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

    • Critical race theory is an explicitly left-wing movement inspired by the thinking of an Italian neo-Marxist, Antonio Gramsci. Against classic Marxism, for which material conditions are primary, Gramsci (1891-1937) focused on “hegemony”—the system of beliefs that “reinforces existing social arrangements and convinces the dominated classes that the existing order is inevitable,” as Ms. Crenshaw puts it…

    Then you should read more. Start with Kendi’s version of anti-racism. Add in reparations. Then active discrimination against white men, even more than we see today.

    Declaring 13% of the population as some kind of nobility won’t work out well. The white working class people will be further ground down into a state of “nothing left to lose”. Does that appeal to you?

    Steve, what you have to remember is that this present push has absolutely nothing to do with ‘equal treatment under the law’ , but has been right from the outset a subversive and sectional grab at dominance – which has succeeded and always has succeeded – since it really began in earnest during the Kennedy/Johnson era. The idea has always been to shout, scream, stamp feet, cry ‘victimhood’ and grab a little. Then a little more. And a little more. And a little more again. As I said all these pushes succeed – the boo hoo hoo and ‘victim’ strategy is extraordinarily fruitful in the USA, and little pushes become big shoves. You try it on, you win, you try it on some more. The classic strategy of the bully and manipulator.
    Entrenchment of the status quo, ironically enough, has become the reality of this gradualism.

    A number of people here appear to believe that–unlike with every other conflict in human history–the losers will be the ones writing the history after this one. This is, I believe, what is now known as a cope.

    The racial obsession now on the ascendant is near and dear to the hearts of the (Ruling Class) and has always been. What’s happening now is that they’re getting nearly everyone else on board, and this phase will be seen as the Great Awakening, leading of course to the Great Liberation.

    The difference between this new experience and the last time is that this time most of the enslaved ones won’t even realize that they’re enslaved. Now if that isn’t progress, what is? Power, like wealth, is safest when enjoyed secretly.

  22. Are blacks and affirmative action really the cause of white malaise? Have blacks grabbed cultural dominance and by applying intellectual and moral leadership are now liquidating or at least subjugating whites? If it is actually true that a group with an average IQ of 85 and are dividing and destroying whites while building and blossoming their own allied group alliances, well then I have to say this is Darwin’s way of telling whites they are unworthy of surviving, at least in America.

    Perhaps blacks as the agent of white malaise is wrong. For whites I certainly hope so. Did blacks ship masses of mobile capital to China in order to build the factories that make the rope with which to hang white workers? Were Milton Friedman and Ayn Rand, the two ideologues most responsible for open borders, and libertarian-induced white malaise, really of African descent? Are blacks really the financial, media, and political hegemons? Again, if so, whitey deserves his evolutionary fate.

    No, luckily for whites, it is not blacks but hyperwhites who are the historical agents of white malaise. White resistance should aim upwards, and look for useful idiot allies downwards. Whites should learn to exaggerate black demands and to turn blacks against the hyperwhites at every turn. Affimative action, black privilege, etc, should not only be encouraged, it must be applied to hyperwhite institutions such as Wall Street and Hollywood. In fact the entire woke movement is increasingly pozzing centers of hyperwhite power. The clueless wokesters are doing more to undermine hyperwhite power than boomer badwhite system enhancing “resistance” is. It would be better for the Supreme Court to officially proclaim whites as an enemy class and then have badwhite / black resistance apply this to hyperwhite institutions. Hyperwhites haveunleashed this cancer, it is not the job of badwhites to self sacrifice as a form of chemotherapy. Let wokeness and the cultural Frankenstein’s monster it spawns rip until it takes the hyperwhite institutional power down with it.

  29. In his 2020 book Age of Entitlement, Christopher Caldwell argues:

    The changes of the 1960s, with civil rights at their core, were not just a major new element in the Constitution. They were a rival constitution, with which the original one was frequently incompatible…

    That’s true, but…here’s the thing: Technically, the Constitution hasn’t been abrogated

    “Technically” sure. But there’s a whole body of case law. And ethnic, political, career and financial interests behind the rival constitution. It has power behind it. The Constitution–the original–does not.

    Judges should enunciate that arguments over whether one is punching down (bad) or punching up (good) are irrelevant. Punching is against the law.

    But this is the core of it.

    Since the rise of the Jews in the 1960s, they have–very, very successfully–propagandized the minoritarian narrative–minorities oppressed, virtuous; majorities oppressive, evil.

    That majorities do not have rights–most obviously freedom of association–but also that minorities are the standard of value for judging the fairness, virtue and legality of … well, everything, but certainly laws is absolutely sacrosanct.

    The minoritarian transformation has been incredibly successful. Minoritarianism is the religion/religious-justification for the super-state political party–old concerns about class and the working man kicked to the curb–ergo the religion of the state establishment. And there are some financial interests as well, and a lot of “iron rice bowls”–comfy sinecures–involved. But most impressively minoritarian propaganda–along with some economic/class interests–managed to cleave huge numbers of overclass/virtue-signalling white gentiles, making them essentially fellow travelers. (Basically camp kapos complicit in their own genocide.)

    The Supreme Court giving some minor pushback on direct government anti-white cheating–where it’s not sanctioned by law–is possible. I’m thinking about stuff like say Biden’s illegal racial farm subsidies.

    But the idea that the Supremes are going to step up to the plate and overthrow this massive super-structure of minoritarianism–this rival constitution–that the minoritarians put in place over the last 60 years, cemented in place by uncountable reams and reels of propaganda … not going to happen. We’ll have blood in the streets before that would go down.

    No the future is not going to be pretty.

    Remainder of article, for those interested…

    [MORE]

    The theory offers a fundamental critique of the civil-rights movement and the liberal ideology it reflects. Such theorists argue that the civil-rights movement scored some “symbolic” gains for black Americans but left their material conditions mostly unchanged, in part because civil-rights law is inherently limited. Such laws treat “discrimination” as isolated acts by specific individuals or businesses, as exceptions to prevailing norms and practices, not as pervasive and “systemic.” Civil-rights law can mitigate the consequences of illegal and unjust acts, but it can do nothing to redress the continuing impact of past oppression.

    • Critical race theory rejects the principle of equality of opportunity. Its adherents insist that equality of opportunity is a myth, not a reality, in today’s America, and that those who pursue it are misguided. The real goal is equality of results, measured by black share of income, wealth and social standing. Critical race theorists reject the idea that sought-after goods should be distributed through systems that evaluate and reward “merit.”

    This metric is unacceptable, the editors say, because certain “conceptions of merit function not as a neutral basis for distributing resources and opportunity, but rather as a repository of hidden, race-specific preferences for those who have the power to determine the meaning and consequences of ‘merit.’ ” These critics don’t specify which conceptions of merit, if any, they would find acceptable.

    For those who reject meritocracy and demand equal results, even race-conscious policies such as affirmative action are diversionary. “The aim of affirmative action,” the book’s editors insist, is to “create enough exceptions to white privilege to make the mythology of equal opportunity seem at least plausible.” Such policies are an inadequate response to the persistence of “white supremacy.”

    Following Gramsci’s lead, critical race theory has used mainstream concepts such as equality and inclusion to wage a highly effective war of position against liberal ideology. Some liberals have been co-opted, and others silenced. But now the debate has moved to states and school districts around the country, and many parents don’t like what they are seeing. Presenting an honest view of American history in public schools is one thing, parents say, but focusing the curriculum on the “1619 Project” is quite another. Hiring practices and workplaces should be fair and welcoming to all, employees say, but mandatory diversity training premised on the ubiquity of “unconscious racism” and “white fragility” is coercive and insulting.

    Critical race theory’s popularizers have done the movement no favors. In his bestselling book, “How to Be an Anti-Racist,” Ibram X. Kendi bluntly asserts that “the only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination. The only remedy to present discrimination is future discrimination.” If prescriptions such as Mr. Kendi’s come to be seen as the inevitable consequence of critical race theory, the movement will end in failure.

    Another cope?

  33. @Abolish_public_education

    I’ve been thinking about this perennial conservative goal of reducing the size of government. Historically, has it ever happened? What governments have actually been reduced in size, and how was that brought about? I ask because I am pessimistic on this score, and I fear that bloat and decay are irreversible.

  34. Keep in mind that there is no way to divide the U.S. up geographically that will cure what ails us.

    There isn’t any clear immediate geographic separation that works.

    But that isn’t critical. There are schemes to achieve political separation–to get us out of each other’s hair that are possible. (I’ve got one. I’m sure other folks have others.) And those could lead to geographic separation eventually.

    But more on point, i am certain that talking about separation–raising the issue–is critical.

    Separation does three things–which are really one thing:

    1) it makes the point that the shit the minoritarians are doing is really abusive–nation breaking; if you’re going to get ’em to stop without separation they have to realize this.

    2) it makes a very powerful political point about who is actually oppressing whom; the people happy to walk away and go about their own business can not actually be the oppressors; (despite minoritarian propaganda)

    3) it–once people think about it–reveals who is actually parasitic upon whom; this reality will make our minoritarian bully boys very hostile to separation, but it also has the power to “rip back the curtain” and wake up white people

    Melbourne couple put behind bars for enslaving elderly woman for 8 years
    A couple who kept an Indian grandmother as a house slave for eight years have been jailed by a Melbourne court, with the presiding judge expressing astonishment over the pair’s lack of remorse for their heinous crime.

    Kumuthini Kannan, 53, was sentenced to eight years in prison by the Supreme Court of Victoria, while her husband, Kandasamy, 57, will spend six years behind bars. He received a lighter sentence because the court determined he suffered from a weak character and had been dominated by his wife. Mr. Kannan will be eligible for parole in three years, and his wife can apply for early release after serving half her sentence.

    The grandmother had traveled from India to Australia to stay at the Kannans’ residence in July 2007, believing she had been hired to take care of the couple’s children. Instead, she was kept as a slave and tortured for not obeying commands. The elderly victim told the court the couple had once beaten her with a frozen chicken, forced her to work up to 23 hours a day, and would pour hot water on her head if she fell asleep without permission. Her enslavement lasted for eight years and was discovered only after she required emergency medical treatment.

  41. So, I am going to list a series of principles and actions that could help hold the country together peacefully. …

    My final objection here–and btw, Steve i think this is a terrific essay, not because any such stuff is going to happen, but because it raises these core issues–

    anyway, my final objection, is that even though in anno Georgius 2, it’s all blackety, blackety, black–defunding cops, “white privilege”, CRT–that isn’t really *the* problem. Just an instantiation.

    The problem is minoritarianism, and critically immigration. Specifically immigration as a means toward political control and more importantly to destroy the nation–as a nation.

    Even if all your legal suggestions about following the actual Constitution and “equal protection” came to be, as long as there was continued mass immigration … the nation is doomed. (It would just be a much more pleasant doom.)

    In contrast, if we could just permanently and forever *stop immigration*, i think the future gets much brighter. First off, pretty much all working and middle class Americans’ economic prospects get a whole lot better. Secondly suddenly “we’re all in this together”. Look around … this is who you’re in the boat with.

    But critically, once immigration is blissfully, mercifully stopped, i think we’ll start physically becoming a “one people” nation again. Not immediately, but in a couple/three generations what you have is roughly: a white-Asian-Latin middle/upper-middle class; a white-Latin working class; and then the blacks distributed over their class hierarchy. (And, of course, Jews still doing the Jewish thing–i.e. who don’t want to integrate.) You’ll still have our “legacy of slavery” problem–there’s no switch we can flick to handle the last 10,000 years of evolution. But otherwise the nation will look much, much more one-peoplish than it does now. It will not be as nice as nice–nor as competitive–as it could have been if we hadn’t gone down this route. But it can still be pretty nice.

    Immigration is really the key to–the fulcrum for–what our future looks like. How pleasant or unpleasant it is. Who you share a nation with is what really matters.

    Depends what kind of middle class. The pre-1960s middle class of undertakers and other people doing honest work that provided useful services from inside the black community and exemplified bourgeois values was indeed a good and civilizing example. Today’s middle class of affirmative action pets and professional grievance hustlers is anything but a good influence. The incentives our system offers blacks, from one end of their IQ distribution to the other, seems optimized to elicit bad behavior.

    Ending affirmative action could cripple the country because the black middle class will be hit hard. Just think about how much worse blacks will be in America if they don’t have a middle class to guide them.

    Are you being ironic?

    (1) They won’t be ‘worse’ at all. Blacks in salaried employment or operating small businesses don’t live in the slum districts where all the social problems are. With some exceptions (clergymen, undertakers), they don’t work there either.

    (2) The components of the black bourgeoisie which have the most direct contact with feral young people are schoolteachers, school administrators, social workers, clergymen, police officers, and public defenders.

    (3) There was a black middle class prior to 1966. They actually lived and worked among other strata of the black population.

    (4) AA is salient in public employment and in private higher education. North of 80% of the black population does not work in these sectors.

    (5) If I’m not mistaken, sociological studies of the black population indicate that relationships between collateral relatives are quite tenuous compared to what prevails in the rest of the population.

    What happens if you get rid of AA is that the black segment of the higher ed student body falls from 14% to 7% and the sort of ringer who ends up on the faculty will at a much earlier stage be diverted to some other sort of employment. In other sorts of employment, the 30% or 50% who spend a number of years attempting to build a career in a line of work to which they’re unsuitable will be sluiced to more appropriate employment. Letitia James wouldn’t have spent 10 years as a bottom-of-the-barrell lawyer. She’d have done something else.

The 12.8% get veto power over everything. All human endeavors must revolve around the 12.8%, and nothing can occur that displeases the 12.8%.

    More generally, how could the US ever get back to adhering to the Constitution as the Law of the Land again, as the 60 years of violation of it have created the Beast of a Feral government that won’t be rolled back by a couple of SC decisions? This Feral government is deeply entrenched, with half the population having a vested interest in keeping it that way. Amendment X would have to be upheld first, and that ain’t likely – it took a war the first time. (BTW, Peak Stupidity just concluded our “Peak Constitutional Amendment” series by stating that, by a good margin, the 17 Amendments proposed and ratified after the 10 in the Bill of Rights, were bad for the Republic and that Article V was a big screw up by the Founders.)

  80. I am not a lawyer either. I would appreciate being corrected by the lawyers who comment here, but I think you have a fundamental misunderstanding of what the phrase “protected class” means.

    Protected class refers to race, not blacks or whites. Theoretically, the civil Rights laws protect anyone of any race, and occasionally, whites have proven that they were discriminated against on the basis of race. So there’s that.

    The problem is everything else. It’s the society that interprets these laws. You have to bang away on the original meaning of the civil rights laws, not start a wild goose chase creating whites as an ethnic group. This is bound to fail. But then again, banging away doesn’t do much good either. It is catch 22 all over again.

    Secondly, the Supreme Court has already ruled on the subject of compelled speech. (A black mother in Nevada is suing on exactly this basis.) Look up 1943 Barnett versus state of West Virginia. There is no doubt in my mind that critical race theory, as it is currently being practiced, is a total violation of compelled speech.

    So I am absolutely certain that parents can win on those narrow legal grounds. But as Richard Hanania has pointed out, the problem is so much bigger. I am old enough to remember when, many years ago, the conservative forces in New York City (and we had) them, got rid of “Heather has two mommies” in the curriculum.

(And, of course, Jews still doing the Jewish thing–i.e. who don’t want to integrate.)

    Its not going to happen because of the parenthesized text. Ron Unz published recently figures describing the absolute dominance of the tribe in the media. I do not believe they have any free-will at all and that becomes, I assume, mitigation for what happens when they leave this world.

    Anti White programs like Affirmative Action, Critical Race Theory are bad because they specific target White European Americans for hatred, discrimination.

    Everyone in the know understands that no public figure can say or do negative things, words to protected classes like Jews, Gays, Muslims. If a Christian bakery doesn’t want to bake a homosexual wedding cake in some small town in Indiana the who state, mass media comes down to crush that small bakery.

    No hotel can say they will not rent a room to the NAACP or some open Black racist group like A “Black Congressional Caucus” but hotels routinely refuse to rent rooms to legal, well dressed White European advocacy groups like Amren and Vdare.

    Barack Obama’s Barbados light skinned Black Eric Holder openly said that the snuck through Federal Hate Crime law would only protect historic “Victim Groups.” – that excludes all White European Americans who aren’t Jewish.

    The Supreme Court coming to the rescue of America? ha!

    The Supreme Court is a significant culprit for the sad state of modern America.

    -In 1971 (Griggs v. Duke Power) they ruled unanimously that IQ tests and high school graduation requirements for employment, even if administered in a color blind fashion, were unconstitutional. This overturned the lower courts who had decided they were constitutional. This gave birth to the whole “disparate impact” nonsense that if blacks are 12-13% of the general pop, they should be 12-13% of the workforce in any given occupation.

    -In a similar vein, in 2003 they decided that 25 more years (moderate squish O’Connor concurred) of AA in college admissions -AKA blatant discrimination against whites (and Asians)- was permissible. Any college considering the inverse, say discriminating against blacks and Hispanics, even in “limited form,” would surely send libs into an epileptic rage and be struck down by the Court in unanimous fashion.

    -A few years back they punted on a case in CA involving (white) public high school students who were sent home for wearing American flag shirts (The unmitigated gall! In America?! Why I never!) b/c those shirts offended Mexican-origin students; clearly a blatant contradiction of a Warren era decision that allowed students opposed to the Vietnam war to wear wristbands to protest that war.

    On demographic change:
    SCOTUS rule in 1982 5-4 that public schools must admit illegal aliens, no questions asked, no money required. This is a huge (and overlooked) reason for the current “crisis” of so-called dreamers (young adult illegals brought to the US as kids and subsequently educated and raised here). Plus a Brennen footnote to this decision gave us anchor babies.

    But blacks are not evenly distributed. Not a lot of black public sector workers in Idaho. But you go to DC and 97% of the transit drivers are black. Even some arms of the Federal gov. bureaucracy in DC (e.g. staff of the Dept. of Education) are very heavily black.

    And 30% greater propensity is by itself a significant #. It reflects that the governments thumb on the scale in favor of blacks is most present in government employment itself. And once blacks capture an agency, the discrimination against whites becomes intolerably high. In the DC transit system, whites are seen as a threat by their dumber, more corrupt colleagues and the bureaucracy does everything it can to squeeze them out. At this point, any white with brains doesn’t even bother trying. If the DC transit system workforce was 97% white this would be seen as intolerable but since it’s 97% black this is okey-dokey. Blacks can’t be racist by definition.

  99. Thank you Steve. This essay is timely. In response to any and all who propose this or that entry point, I add my bit:

    We need to make it okay to be white. We need to say, “I like being white, I like my white friends, I want my children to attend white schools with white teachers.” We need to say these things, out loud, in the presence of negroes, then we need to defend ourselves from violent physical and verbal assaults. Defence in the form of filing charges of assault (and probably battery) against violent negroes and violently virtue-signalling whites is probably the first step, to be followed by lawsuits filed in various courts asserting white rights (i.e. the right to be white and to like being white and to choose to socialize with other whites).

    Lawsuits are expensive. Test cases require oganization and funding to propel only certain cases forward. I predict the first test cases will be the defence of the organization. Fine, so be it.

    I onced asked an older person from the deep South if he had known any Klansmen. His response, “Those people are beneath us.” We need to keep it that way.

    Lastly, we need to keep it about whiteness. In response to questions, “Do you support BLM, what do you think of Affirmative Action blah blah blackity blackity black,” the only valid response is “I like being white.”

  100. Recommended edit in the OP:

    Rationalizations such as “We are not attacking white people per se, just whiteness” must be laughed out of court as feebleminded excuses for race-based hate. To use schools and workplaces to attack whiteness is to attack whites for their race, which is against the law.

    …may be enhanced as such:

    Rationalizations such as “We are not attacking white people per se, just whiteness” must be laughed out of court as feebleminded excuses for race-based hate the same way everyone knows “we are not attacking Jewish people per se, just ‘Jewishness’” or “we are not attacking black people per se, just ‘blackness’” is immediately recognized as hateful, racist drivel.

    They’ll be worse off without quotas because they will have to compete with others on a level playing field. See: Gottfredson. Some other commenter did a good job of recapping her findings. Search for it.

    (2) The components of the black bourgeoisie which have the most direct contact with feral young people are schoolteachers, school administrators, social workers, clergymen, police officers, and public defenders.

    So what? That’s true of white SJWs, and other Goodwhites, and it doesn’t change their opinions an iota. In any case I fail to see the relevance to the issue of black competitiveness.

    (3) There was a black middle class prior to 1966. They actually lived and worked among other strata of the black population.

    Here we get to the heart of the matter. It amazes me how you’re able to cite facts and then miss the essence. Prior to 1966 blacks mainly competed with other blacks in a society segregated by custom and law.

    This was bad for many blacks but great for the elite. Someone like Katherine Johnson or David Blackwell (look him up) were the top of the pyramid. Have them compete with whites and they’re good, but not great. (Look up the story about Blackwell and John Von Neumann.)

    This worked all down the line – middling successful blacks, competing with Everyone Else, would not be middling – they’d be lower class, possibly working poor.

    So what was your point?

    What an author intends in her book and the message that gets filtered into the popular consciousness after getting scripted into a Hollywood movie and being taught by muddle headed HS English teachers are two completely different things.

    True.

    Not only that, but the book was carefully produced with the help of a Brooklyn Quaker editrix named Tae Hohoff.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tay_Hohoff

    I am NOT suggesting, as some have that Lee didn’t write the book. She wrote every word. But in those days star editors and their pet writers worked together much more closely than in today’s slapdash world.

    Joseph Heller said that his editor, Robert Gottlieb, worked with him on Catch-22 “like a surgeon.” Every sentence was combed over.

    I am positive that Hohoff’s Brooklyn Quakerism had a huge effect on the published novel.

    Here it is, for those of us who actually DO read the source material:

    https://www.thesmartset.com/article02161501/

    Lind’s point, which you evidently missed, is that Lee demonized a poor white family in a way that utterly removed it from consideration as great literature.

    Great literature seeks to illuminate. In Tess, the master Thomas Hardy is capable of more insight in a few brushstrokes than a thousand pages of Lee’s middle-brow tripe. (See: Car Darch, a minor character, and of course the feckless Durbeyfield parents.)

    Art, no disrespect here, but just where do you live in which every government office of ANY kind is not chock full of black people, mostly women?

    I’ve lived in three different cities and in small towns as well. Blacks constitute about 12% of the working population so will be found in noticeable numbers lots of places. As we speak, about 18% of all federal civilian employees are black. The same applies to active-duty military.

    Discrete occupations where (1) blacks are abnormally common and (2) public employment is common are as follows:

    Postal clerks (38.4%)
    Bus drivers (37%)
    Jail and prison guards (32.9%)
    Postal mail sorters &c (31.1%)
    Jail and prison guards, supervisory (30.6%)
    Community and social service employees, NOS (30.4%)
    Garbage collectors (27.9%)
    Probation officers (26.9%)
    Social workers, child-family-school (26.8%)
    Social workers, NOS (25.7%)
    Drug counselors (25.4%)
    Court, municipal, and license clerks (23.1%)
    Bus drivers, school (21.5%)
    Eligibility interviewers (20.7%)
    Guidance counselors (19%)
    Social and human service assistants (18.9%)
    Letter carriers (18.7%)
    Locomotive engineers (18.6%)
    Social and community service managers (18.3%)
    Judges, magistrates &c (16.1%)
    Coaches and scouts (14.7%)
    Tax examiners, collectors &c (14.5%)
    Education and childcare administrators (14.3%)
    Budget analysts (13.9%)
    Detectives and criminal investigators (13.9%)
    Teaching assistants (13.6%)

    About 4.3% of the working population is found in these occupations. About 20% of those employed in these occupations are black. There are 1.28 million blacks employed in these occupations, accounting for 7% of the population of working blacks.

  130. In my opinion, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was designed to trick people into giving up their Constitutional Rights for Civil Rights, a lesser position than having full Civil Rights.

  131. The bottom line, the harsh reality, is that the Jews have weaponized Blacks, Perverts, Deviants, Amerindians, Latin Mestizos and Mulattoes and other inferior races against Whites. We are now living under a Soviet-style tyranny in which the enforced religion is that of Negro Worship.
    The current ruling Jewish governing elite in White countries has imposed a religion in which the ugliest, stupidest, most unintelligent, most impulsively violent, most sociopathic, savage, most parasitic race must be celebrated as brave, beautiful promethean heroes who will save Whites from themselves.
    Whites only became susceptible to this satanic evil after the two World Wars of White Suicide. We were vulnerable. We had lost a couple of generations of our finest young men. We were appalled at what we had done. The Jews stepped in as the ambulance-chasing false victims that they were and are.
    That is why there is such a weak push-back against the evil of Wokeness. Whites are afraid of their own capacity for destruction. As a result we’ve allowed our religion and our civilization to be destroyed by the Jews and their other nonWhite allies.
    The details don’t matter. All that matters is for Whites to see who are their enemies. Who has declared war on Whites? We have a right to our countries that we founded and built. Every square inch of them.
    The only solution to Woke Culture is mass deportation of ALL of the enemies of Whites. And let’s remember that Jews are not Whites. They are the self-declared enemies of Whites.
    It might not seem that the solution of mass deportation is possible right now, but things can move very, very fast under the right circumstances. For instance, who would have predicted the collapse of the Soviet Union even a couple of years before it happened?
    In any event, mass expulsion of nonWhites from historically White countries; Europe, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, U.S., Canada, etc. is the ONLY solution. Whites are already in a war for their very existence. At some point there will be a massive awakening among Whites that this is a stark, brutal reality.

    Now that it is becoming provably apparent that the 2020 election was stolen, I would like to see a constitutional amendment to insure voting rights for all Americans, not just the black ones that live in former Confederate States of America. Clearly a massive number of citizens were discriminated against, most of them white. There clearly needs to be something that forcibly brings up to date, protections from cheating, including the advances (or set backs) from the impacts of computers.
    By making it an amendment, it will punctuate what occurred and make it far more difficult in the future to thwart the majority will.

  133. @Jenner Ickham Errican

    Where the dipshits get it wrong is the use of the word treatment.
    If the goal is equal outcome you cannot have equal treatment.

  134. It isn’t something we should try to do to “peacefully” hold the country together. Civilization is based on the ability to bring to bear organized violence. Any civilization that loses the ability to violently defend itself is doomed. White civilization is now threatened with finally being destroyed. The ONLY thing that will save it is by violently defending itself. Trying to “peacefully” hold the U.S. together will only be by cowardice and treason against the the Whites who built the country and modern civilization. Holding the country together “peacefully” will only result in the the end of civilization.
    The ONLY solution to Woke, third-world Culture is mass deportation of ALL of the enemies of Whites. And let’s remember that Jews are not Whites. They are the self-declared enemies of Whites.It might not seem that the solution of mass deportation is possible right now, but things can move very, very fast under the right circumstances.

    I hope (and pray) that you are wrong about this. The experience in Africa, the Caribbean, etc. has been (1) whites giving up power in the face of black numerical superiority and (2) victorious blacks NOT engaging in genocide of white. Sure there is lots of crime in which individual whites may be killed and the government may try to make whites miserable enough to leave (seize their property, etc.) , but there is no mass extermination of whites. For a while at least, whites are kept around (albeit as 2nd class citizens) because blacks realize that they need their skills to a certain extent. I think this is the most likely scenario for the US.

    Conversely, the idea that whites will one day wake up and take back power even though they are a declining minority is a fantasy – I don’t think that’s going to happen. It’s just going to be a steady drip drip erosion of white control and the smooth functioning of society. There is a lot of ruin in a nation (see for example Venezuela) so that even after the power grid, etc. fails people will just put up with it in the face of a powerful government. At some point, we will join Russia as a former superpower and become Brasil do Norte, maybe even socialist. The Latino underclass seems to like socialism and demagogic leaders.

    Gradual decline is not as much of a dramatic fun fantasy as an apocalyptic war for control with lots of explosions and a New Order (hopefully your side) emerging triumphant and victorious, but I think it is the more realistic scenario. It’s going to be more like the Fall of Rome than the Fall of Berlin.

    Steve, that was a terrible column and boomer cope.

    The Supremes are likely to rule around 7-2 that not only do Whites NOT HAVE CIVIL RIGHTS, but that the Government MUST DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THEM. As a moral and constitutional matter.

    As far as the Constitution goes, you might as well wipe your ass with it. It has as much use as toilet paper. The 1964 Civil Rights Act is what matters, and it supersedes and abolishes the Constitution. White cannot have any rights at all in our society.

    What you neglect is that the moral, cultural, political, and social legitimacy of the ruling Elite and system is based on:

    1. Whites are genetically evil and must be punished over and over again for the sins of long dead White people, even if they are no relations.
    2. Blacks are the Holy Racial Redeemers of the Original Sin of Whiteness, and Holy beyond dispute, and the natural and Holy Ruling Class.

    The Supremes given these cultural, social, political, and above all MORAL beliefs cannot rule otherwise than Whites HAVE NO RIGHTS AND MUST BE CRUSHED.

    What the Supremes will rule is that not only can but the Government MUST discriminate against Whites. White kids must be told over and over again that they are evil and black people Holy. That they cannot advance themselves at all in life because they are genetically evil. That colleges and Universities MUST discriminate against Whites and take almost none in. That Whites MUST be fired from not just Government jobs but private sector jobs, and be replaced by blacks, or at worst, Latinos. And that the Government can and should put White people in re-education camps to erase their “Whiteness.”

    The top people, the Pelosis, the Clintons, the Bidens, the Schumers, will not be impacted by this at all nor will their kids/grandkids. They will come out just fine, exceptions like Merrick Garland’s daughter clerking for the Supremes will always be made for big shots. The lower elites, the Hedge Fund Managers, the FBI Agents, the Colonels and Majors in the Pentagon, the Marketing Director at P&G, they will find their kids will have no future just like the Sex Pistols promised.

    This guarantees conflict, as the elites will split among themselves. The Supremes MANDATING as they will CRT in schools and no Whites need apply to College is going to cause conflict. The Supremes will mandate it, if nothing else to avoid court packing. But also because they swim in ultra elite waters and that is what the ultra elites want: total and continual discrimination against Whites as genetically evil. Otherwise you’d never heard of Kendi.

    But Conflict was GUARANTEED from the moment Civil Rights appeared. There was never going to be enough elite positions to distribute to blacks without hurting eventually elite Whites who will push back particularly for their kids. If Felicity Huffman would go to great lengths to get her dumb daughter into USC, what will the above lower tier elites do for their kids? Will they sacrifice their kids for black ones? To ask is to answer it.

    So, no one should be wishcasting. Confict is upon us, guaranteed, it wll be long, ugly, brutal, degrading, and with many, many costs.

    “The privileges and immunities of citizens of the United States do not necessarily include all the rights protected by the first eight amendments to the Federal Constitution against the powers of the Federal Government.”

    Do you honestly believe you can trust any black robes who would pen such an atrocious holding?

    Federal citizenship is a municipal franchise domiciled in D.C.; and, Congress expressly extended the ENTIRE U.S. Constitution into D.C. in 1871.

    That Extension Statute was also cited in Downes v. Bidwell:

    Wrong on pretty much all levels
    First, the thirst for racial vengeance among blacks and GoodWhites is very strong. That cannot be called back.

    Second, White elites frozen out of moving up, or their kids even continuing their own status, or being fired, is a recipe for civil war. That’s been true since Sargon of Akkad (the ruler not the blogger).

    Third, the US is too complex and dependent on White skills to function at all like South Africa or Brazil. Unlike those places, people here expect the power to be always on and the water clean and safe to drink. Just feeding people requires a lot of transport of grain, petroleum products, electricity, and so on. The Mississippi River transport system with barges for example totally depends on Whites. As does the Ohio, much of long-distance trucking, refineries, and the rail network. To name just a few.

    Firing Whites and replacing them with blacks means all that fails and starvation starts, because of the dependency on skilled labor. Its one thing to replace a few talented programmers with Indian H1-B code farms, for non-essential stuff, or working on fairly non-changing legacy IT systems. Its another to do that with systems that require skill and years of knowledge.

    Fourth, there has never been a system where Whites are the historic and founding majority of the country by a huge margin and now replaced by blacks as their ruling class (which also hates them, replaces their history, values, stories, and traditions with black substitutes that are hated). And that leaves out Latinos who aspire mostly to Whiteness and are repelled by black people in pretty much every way. See Sammy Sosa.

    Replace Old Glory with the fake and gay Pride Flag? Yes elites can ram that through, but can’t make Whites love the flag. Or serve in the military. Replace the Star Spangled Banner with the Black national anthem: Baby Got Back by Sir Mixalot? Sure they can but they can’t make Whites love it. If they replace the White officer corps with a black one, all that guarantees is a mutiny, military wide.

    Brazilian, Jamiacan, and South African Whites coped by emigrating: example Charlize Theron. There are too many to emigrate and no place to emigrate to anyway.

    TLDR: White flight becomes eventually White fight. Your skin color is your uniform.

    And ghetto blacks don’t aspire to be accountants and pharmacists – their role models are rappers and pro-athletes.

    This is basically correct. Live-for-the-moment blacks are rarely going to be inspired or guided by plan-for-the-future blacks (or any other like minded people.) Radicalism provides them with a much more streamlined (and exciting) moral, logical and political framework, one that seems to better fit their temperament. Also, for much of flamboyant and showy black America, becoming just like everyone else with no special attributes (such as a historically unique victimhood) would mean leaving the center stage of society, and I don’t believe they could handle that emotionally.

    Anyway, the “plan-for-the-future” black middle class I mentioned is – to one degree or another – a myth created by utopianists (like anonymous) from a broad range of political perspectives for a broad range of reasons. It exists, but the black middle class is mostly a product of an affirmative action that de-emphasizes self improvement in favor of external improvement (I’m not to blame for my impoverished state, society is, so it should change, not me.)

  152. @Torn and Frayed

    I find a lot to agree with in your comment, Torn and Frayed, but here is the problem- the hyperwhite power structure won’t be building public housing projects in Brentwood, Greenwich, etal. They will be built in where conservatives live. Reparations won’t be paid out via a progressive tax on rich whites- they will be paid out via money printing which will simply devalue whatever financial assets the middle class white own. At best, what you propose might be the only thing that actually wakes the middle class up, but I predict by that point they will have been disarmed by the SCOTUS Steve Sailer is proposing to save us.

    They weren’t a generic ‘poor white family’. The father was a drunk who lived on relief checks and told his children to not bother attending school. The oldest daughter was not demonized. The notion that her portrait of the Ewell family ‘utterly removed it from consideration’ is bloody silly.

    Brown vs. Board was 9-0, with the opinion written by the chief justice. These factors greatly enhanced its moral and legal authority.

    Brown was a mess. May well turn out to be the worst decision–in its effects that the Supremes every dumped on us.

    If Cold War politics decreed an end to government segregation, they could have just done that. Decreed that while, of course, people were free to organize their private affairs however they liked, that the government could not racially discriminate in its programs.

    That would have been
    — understandable to people
    — a clear constitutional principle–although not what the 14th amendment actually said
    — given southern states a clear direction–vouchers/educational choice–if white parents wanted to keep their kids out of heavily black schools/classrooms
    — given us a decision–wrapped up in the flag and “history”–that would protect Americans from a lot of the minoritarian legal/political thuggery down the road.

    Instead we got a lot of (highly dubious) social-science driven mumbo-jumbo about segregation itself inducing inferiority, harming black self-esteem (LOL) … and basically that it was whites’ job to fix it. I.e. white people had to integrate with blacks for the benefit of blacks. “Integration” was some sort of law or the land. (“Civil rights” … busing … “affirmative action” … “diversity”

    In other words: minoritarianism had its foot in the door. An opening to minoritarianism–that minoritarians have kept pushing on and on and on. (Busing … “Civil Rights” … “affirmative action” … “disparate impact” … “diversity is our greatest strength” … homosexual marriage … open borders … “transgender” nonsense … )

    The white majority must sacrifice its goals and desires, first its schools, neighborhoods … then its jobs … then its physical safety … then its culture, its nation … its civilization and existence as a people … to accommodate precious oppressed minorities.

    Funny thing: blacks don’t even want to integrate. They really don’t want to be “white bread”. Probably even more so than Jews (a mixed bag on that score). They like being black and don’t want to change.

    This, of course, isn’t that odd. Minorities tend to have strong affinity for their minority group/norms/behavior/culture … or they wouldn’t still be a minority, they’d have integrated already. Catholics still have their Catholic schools. The Golfocaust is long over, but Jews still have their Jewish clubs, and still do their ethnic networking. Schooling their kids and socializing (inc. churching) (leading toward marriage/reproduction) is, of course, where people most cling to their own.

    But the principle of minoritarianism is not actually “integration”, but that the white gentile majority can’t be allowed to have stuff of their own.

    Brown was a disaster. It didn’t create minoritarianism–that push and propaganda–was coming anyway. But it could have made minoritarianism’s rise much tougher. Instead it made it much easier. America deserved better.

    Lind’s point is that post WW2 20th C middle-grade fiction was mostly written by genteel whites, that their literature caricatured poor whites and held them responsible for Southern racism, when in reality the genteel whites (his relatives) were the ones truly responsible. (Something Lee wrote about more honestly in “Watchman,” which lost Atticus Finch some of his more rabid fans.)

    Lind’s essential point was that Jim Crow was a sop thrown to poor whites by the rich whites who controlled the system.

    You may agree or disagree with Lind – I do – but at least give the article a fair reading and base your dismissal on what he actually wrote, not what you imagine he wrote.

    I think he was wrong about the origins of Jim Crow. I do think he was quite right about the genteel Southern writer demonization of poor whites. Most of them (O’Connor excepted – she’s sui generis) wanted to Make It Big up North, so obliged the Yankees. That’s something Lind doesn’t explore.

    Philadelphia and many northern cities were integrated decades before civil rights legislation banned the freedom of association. Certainly civil rights legislation compounded the problems, but our Northern cities had already been decimated with demographic diversity by 1960. I suppose we could blame redlining, yet in Philly the redlined areas were primarily ethnic whites until 1940. My grandfather grew up in Powelton Village (West Philly) which was redlined in 1934 when it was still 90% white. My grandmother grew up in Germantown , which was also redlined and the location of one of the first housing projects in Philly in 1952.

    All four of my grandparents grew up in different neighborhoods , 3 in Philly, one in Chester. All 4 saw their childhood neighborhoods go from 95% white to 90% Black by 1960 and with the change the value of their property collapsed as the crime rate soared.

    civil rights legislation certainly made the cities worse , resulting in even more white flight.

    APE, you’re not going to “embarrass” the super-state into anything.

    But beyond that the obvious improvement nationalists/conservatives could do on the state level is vouchers. Give parents the financial heft to pick the educational option for their kids. That gets around much of the CRT propaganda issue.

    But i’ve pointed that out before and you didn’t like that either. I don’t know what you program is, but it seems to be having parents foot all the bills from their own pocket at that moment in time. Which is … ridiculous:

    — Education–not necessarily all the b.s. in US schools, but literacy, numeracy–is pretty critical for economic development/performance. It’s much, much, much better to be in a nation that is getting almost everyone (the retards aren’t really important) educated; to have not just a well educated elite, but a literate/numerate working class.

    — Fertility. We need higher middle class fertility not lower. Dumping all the education costs on young families–when they are just starting out and their incomes are low–is just stupid. It’s a recipe for one-child-and-the-wife-goes-back-to-work-to-pay-for-private-school amongst the higher IQ classes. While the classes who don’t care about education can keep popping out babies willy-nilly. More dumb people with minimal skills. Peachy.

    My kids are grown, and i’m paying several thousands in property taxes for public education. The education part doesn’t bother me. I want the kids in my nation getting educated. What i object to is all the minoritarian lies and nonsense taught and the public sector featherbedding.

He was not allowed to criticise Mussolini, but did not have to praise him if he didn’t want to. However, in China the citizen had to praise Chairman Mao – he could not remain silent.

    OK, Art, with a little less respeck this time, cause I remember telling you this 3 years ago or so: Art, you tend to pull numbers off the internet, not always having the background to know whether they are completely meaningless or not. One thing, if you have been around a bit, is you think D.I.M.S., or Does It Make Sense?

    There is no way these occupations add up to 4.3% of the jobs held by Americans! People in education alone are more than that proportion. Your numbers DO NOT MAKE SENSE. Go to the site of the US Gov’t BLS* and this page. Just in “Educational Services” alone there are 13.7 million people, of which 11.6% are black.** OK, we’re at 1.6 million already!

    Look at post office employees. You’ve got 622,000 of them, with just under 1/4 being black. I can do that in my head – that’s another 155,000. Look at the specific category of “Bus Service and Urban Transit” – I expected about 0.03% white, haha, but no, the proportion of black employees is right at 1/3 of 389,000. Also in my head, ~ 130,000. Here’s the biggie that is by definition government, “Public administration” – you’ve got 17.5% of 7.5 million – another 1.3 million there Art.

    “Social Assistance”? There may be some charity employees in there, but I’d guess most is government supported. Oops, that’s 19.9% of 3.14 million – 624,000, but, sure 1/2 of them could be working privately, as the childcare category is a significant chunk.

    Pretty soon, it adds to real money… for us taxpayers who don’t ride the bus, don’t like the public schools, HATE, HATE, HATE going into any government offices, and OK, I like the Post Office, and when the other mailman doesn’t sub in and deliver the previous house’s mail to the next one for the whole block, I like my regular Oriental mailman a lot.

    We’re up to around 4 million black government employees at decent-paying jobs already without plenty of people that don’t seem to fit under the categories I already mentioned.

    The “Public Administration” does not include those guys taking the trash and doing maintenance on the trees, sewers, and roads (as you included, but I didn’t – for the roads, it’s probably under “Services incidental to transportation”.) I just got these guys to help me out with some work. Great guys! One white supervisor and 2 or 3 black guys operation small heavy machinery. The white guy did his share to help too.

    So my point stands, but you just wasted nearly an hour of my time. That’s annoying, Art. Can you trust that people have some common sense and maybe not trust numbers just pulled off the internet without a lot of thinking about them?

    .

    * I know better than to trust them on inflation numbers (there are some creative green eyeshade whit boys over there), but I guess I’ll give ’em credit for using a dBase to count occupations accurately.

Under existing law and with continuing high levels of economic activity, revenues for the fiscal year would be 41 billion dollars. This would result in an estimated deficit of 873 million dollars.

    b) we’d have a lot more social peace, including a bit less of aforesaid legal b.s. if we a had a fully developed private K-12 educational market; which we would have with vouchers.

    If we had vouchers there would already be lots of more traditional/conservative options available for precisely the sort of parents (white, sane) fighting against CRT.

    My actual teaching experience is limited to college level, but if i was running a school i’d have a lot more computer driven individual instruction and a lot more hands on–physical toys, labs, shop (wood, metal, electrical, computers), home ec, athletics and sports, rifle range, hikes, kayaking, camping … plus have the students and teachers doing cleaning and maintenance.

    after 10 minutes explaining his work to VN, he admitted that VN knew more about the subject than he did.

    Yeah, but that’s just the kind of thing everyone used to say about von Neumann . The best mathematicians of his generation were in awe of him.

    Katherine Johnson was doing for NASA what other “computers” (as the job was called) were doing at insurance companies working out the appropriate premium for people of different ages, a formula that has a double integral behind it, which actuaries understand but computers see as just tedious additions.

    Mathematical models stated in their general form might bristle with exotic symbols, but calculating the answer to a specific problem always boils down to the four operations everyone knows by fourth grade — addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

    Plugging numbers into formulas is clerical work.

    Haiti was the exception and no other black country has tried to emulate them because the results were so clearly disastrous, not just for the white planters but for the blacks themselves. Haiti is an object lesson, even for blacks, in what NOT to do.

    Although of course the Woke POV is that Haiti is a shithole because the French made the Haitians pay reparations afterward. If it wasn’t for those reparation payments, Haiti would be Wakanda by now. Even if there are no white people in sight, whatever blacks do to each other is always white people’s fault anyway.

    Johnson had a math degree and was, for example, 2nd author on a paper on how to position a satellite:

    This was more than just adding up numbers on a desk calculator. But OTOH, it was nothing groundbreaking – it was just a workman like effort and had she been a white male it would not have been notable at all. Newton deserves all the credit for discovering the laws of motion and of universal gravitation and all Johnson’s paper did was apply those laws to a particular situation. She is to Newton as a flea is to an elephant.

    But (probably unlike many of her fellow “computers”) she actually knew what those numbers were that she was adding up (and was eventually promoted over to the white people’s building and didn’t have to sit all day and just add up numbers). When she was over there, she used the white ladies toilet, partly because no one who worked for NASA cared about this segregation stuff anymore and partly because most people must have assumed that she was white since she was the kind of “black” person who probably had 75% European genes.

    Look up the story about Blackwell and John Von Neumann.

    This is unfair because Von Neumann was a once in a generation genius – he was literally the smartest man on earth. Chances are that if he spent ten minutes talking to you about any (mathematical) subject, at the end of 10 minutes he would understand it better than you did, regardless of what color you were. Feynman was like this also. He was the spoiler of many a dissertation because a student would come in with what he thought was a suitably difficult and new research worthy problem and Feynman would solve it on the spot (for a particularly difficult problem he might take overnight).

    Absolutely not underestimating Blackwell. I’m merely pointing out that in a segregated society, he’d have been the top guy. When competing with whites/Jews, he was 2nd tier (compared to VN, Einstein, etc.) A genius but not a magician.

    And, as Jack D pointed out, a mere clerk doesn’t understand what she’s doing, Johnson did.

    I really don’t understand what your nitpicking is about. My point, made several times with great patience (and now for the final time) was that she was a beneficiary, and not a victim, of racial segregation, in that during her formative years, she didn’t have to compete with whites. The walls of segregation came down after she got her degrees and was a fully formed adult. So she got the best of both worlds.

    That’s true of an entire generation of accomplished blacks. For them, segregation afforded what we now call a “safe space.” During Jim Crow, they ruled over other blacks. When segregation was ended, they had the skills to compete with whites so they did OK. Not so with poor, uneducated blacks. They had no skills, no education, nothing to fall back upon, and they were expected to compete with whites. Disaster.

    Today’s black “intellectuals” are the exact opposite of the old colored elite: coddled and enabled. They rightly sense that their achievements are due to their race, and they hate whites for it.

    And Johnson never suffered for her sex, as Emmy Noether did. Now, that was a genuine female genius who was truly discriminated against. She competed with the greats and more than held her own.

Von Neumann-a real genius-was never like that. He genuinely loved helping people learn.

  221. My prescription — Upgrade to Second-Class Civil Rights — Pay for What You Take.

    – One can either be fair to everyone or equalize group outcomes, but not both. To equalize group outcomes individuals must be discriminated against.

    – “Diversity”, “inclusion” and “equity” are excuses to discriminate. At best, they are licenses to cheat, but not licenses to steal. Those who actually lost an opportunity should be compensated just as blacks who suffer from actual discrimination. Just as contested condemnation of real estate for the good of the community means if the state wins its case, it still must pay for the value of the property lost.

    – A ‘Truth in Discrimination’ disclosure would be required. The pledge “We will not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, etc.” is merely an articulation of gross civil rights, not the net rights actually delivered. Institutions will need to affirmatively state the ‘sacred ground’ that will be honored, when they will not discriminate. No vague assertions about only discriminating when compelled to do so.

    – Put the discrimination at the end of the evaluation process. Don’t headhunt for “diversity” at the beginning of the process. Add the D/I/E bonus points at the last step in the process. That way we can tell if one individual was actually denied the opportunity and should be compensated.

    – The approach allows discrimination against a group without taking it all out on a single individual. This is an anti-racism approach because losing a job because of one’s race will tend to encourage vitriol against the race of the favored applicant. Why create a bigot when a $25,000 payoff can soften the blow of overt discrimination.

    JohnnyWalker123’s conspiracy theory is similar to your statement that whites do not have civil rights. Of course American whites have civil rights, as we are citizens who have due process and equal protection under the law.

    “This got me thinking about how the Supreme Court could play a role in saving the United States of America from breaking apart due to the surging tide of antiwhite racist hate emanating from many of its most powerful institutions.”

    So you take a false premise and create an argument–mind you, without any specific legal rationale because that is not your area of expertise–based on that false premise that essentially touts judicial activism, which I thought was a big n0-no among conservatives.

    Judicial restraint argues the Constitution entrusts broad issues of the general welfare to the jurisdiction of the executive and legislative branches. In effect, judicial activism ultimately undermines public respect for an intervening Supreme Court. Judicial activism counters the courts were established as an independent branch and have the right to make new interpretations from existing laws when there is a compelling societal need, even if this action leads to direct confrontation with elected officials.

    Judicial activism and judicial restraint lies in the extent to which a judge is willing to depart from the wording of the law and contest the will of the majority. Now, Mr. Sailer, if you are willing to compromise your own principles, then essentially you are no different than those who you denounce. The problem remains of reconciling the American democratic heritage with an active policymaking role for the judiciary. Please NOTICE that the federal courts employ a “doctrine of political questions” to avoid deciding those cases that involve conflicts between the executive and judicial branches. The problem recently has been Democrats and Republicans alike in the past 20 years circumventing this process by “packing the court” with toadie ideologues.

    “The Supreme Court should announce that the era of it permitting violations of the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause by tolerating discrimination against whites is coming to a close.”

    LOL, you embarrass yourself. The Supreme Court has issued rulings that protects whites from racial animus. The 9 cannot simply make an announcement like a K-Mart blue light special. Because feelings.

    The U.S. Supreme Court has decades-old precedent about what is permissible when it comes to programs that promote inclusion and diversity. Companies are allowed to put in place proactive plans to address areas where there have been racial inequality issues, as long as they do not have an exclusionary effect on a White or male person. In recent years, Title VII claims have increasingly been litigated by white defendants, and for good reason. Successful reverse discrimination lawsuits on behalf of our race is other than a novel concept.

    Former Google engineer James Damore, for example, filed a discrimination lawsuit after he was fired for criticizing the company’s diversity policies in a 3,000-word memo that, in part, detailed the biological differences between sexes that he claimed made men better suited for the industry. He ultimately dropped that lawsuit in May.

    Another lawsuit claims former Google and YouTube recruiter Arne Wilberg was unlawfully fired because he didn’t reject white and Asian male job candidates, which he said the company pressured him and other recruits to do for diversity purposes. The company denied it has such a policy. The dispute was sent to arbitration.

    In an October 2019 lawsuit, which is ongoing, store manager Shannon Phillips alleged that, as a result of the inclusion efforts, she and other White employees who weren’t involved in the incident were punished and Black staff members present during the conflict weren’t. She says her termination was motivated by the arrests and bad publicity the company received and sued for discrimination based on her race as a White person.

    “Other notions: Disparate impact analysis should also be extended to immigration policies that have the effect of changing the ethnic and thus partisan balance of the electorate”.

    Then you would have to change the law, as it deals exclusively with employer policies and practices. The Supreme Court would agree that a person bringing forth this type of suit you suggest lacks legal standing. You would get laughed out of the court room.

    “The mantra “Diversity is our strength,” as Dan Quayle claimed, is not part of the Constitution. Instead, it is an empirical assertion that must be subjected to strict scrutiny when it is offered as an excuse for racial discrimination.”

    You do realize that the Supreme Court takes into account the prevailing social attitudes of the time frame when guiding their legal rationales, right?

    The United States has borne witness to countless “refoundings”, from Jacksonian Democracy to the Civil War ending slavery to the Progressive Era’s federal reform efforts to the New Deal’s interventions. Every single one of them, just like the Civil Rights “revolution”, sparked tense and even violent clashes between competing perspectives of the Constitution. In other words, there has been perpetual friction between individual liberties and the collective good. Through it all, there has been revitalization and renewal.

    The problem was that the Jim Crow South was never going to guarantee as it promised under “separate but equal” the basic liberties of half of its citizens, and thus federal power was the necessary cudgel to break state and local self-determination. Today, those past arguments of “freedom of association” and “freedom of property” have been amped up by social traditionalists. The fact of the matter is these concepts have never been absolute in our glorious history. Federal and state laws have at various times constrained them in the name of the public’s best interest, and civil rights, as originally constituted, are in the public’s best interest.

    But do not despair, Mr. Sailer. We whites will continue to get our day in court! Because, undoubtedly, there will be smarty-pants lawyers who will use anti-discrimination laws, as they do now and as they ought to in protecting our race, in unique ways in the future. Speaking of which…

    I think you are mixing up Brown with the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Brown did not concern private conduct at all, it concerned government funded public schools, perhaps one of the most pure example of government action possible. As Corvinus said, maybe if the South had followed Plessy in good faith and had in fact created separate BUT EQUAL public schools for blacks and whites, it would have been better. But the South overreached. They had separate schools that were NOT equal by any measure (not in terms of the talents of the students, which they are powerless to change, but in terms of the physical plant and quality of the teachers, the number and age of books, etc.). And so they got slapped back.

    If there had really been equal schools, maybe Plessy would have lasted longer, even though it was a bad faith decision to begin with (it was always clear that the South was never really going to provide equal facilities to blacks – Southern whites liked the “separate” part a lot more than the “equal” part). You may be right that blacks (based on their revealed preferences) didn’t really want integration more than whites but they sure as hell wanted the equal protection of law that they had been promised in the 14th Amendment. As a practical matter, the only way they were going to get “equal” facilities was if they were allowed to attend the facilities that had been built for whites.

    The persons responsible for Jim Crow were (1) public officials working in (2) a matrix of public opinion. There was likely a spiral-of-silence preventing some white Southerners from objecting. Flannery O’Connor’s public remarks on the subject are to be found in Mystery and Manners. Her own take on ‘manners’ and how they regulate social life can be found. She understands ‘integration’ as a different ecosystem of manners. The features of Jim Crow – the signs on the water fountains and what not – were a physical manifestation of the manners of the era. O’Connor wasn’t a utopian at all and skewered political sectaries in “Everything that Rises Must Converge”, but she had no stomach for attempting to retain segregation beyond what people do voluntarily in their daily lives.

    Note, the problem with school segregation was that systems in effect were regulated by sentiments which incorporated a notion of ritual impurity. In Virginia, to take one example, segregation applied just as much in the western part of the state as it did in Richmond, even though there were hardly any blacks in the western part of the state. Black youngsters were transported all over the place to tiny all county schools. You had unique state professional schools which were categorically closed to aspirants from 25% of a state’s population. Had they been operating an honest system, they’d have made accommodations.

    However, the problems in re the schools or ‘public accommodations’ were of secondary interest. The two premier problems in the South were (1) the police and the courts were a mess and (2) elections administration was a mess. James Jackson Kilpatrick was a defender of segregation, but he was at peace with voting rights laws because the whole process of drawing up electoral registers in the South was so crooked.

    Not so, Jack. According to the late, lamented Raymond Wolters, may he rest in peace, the last legitimate historian of race in America, in the run-up to Brown, Southern school districts gave segregated black schools equal, and in some cases, superior funding to that of White schools. That was fine with the overwhelming majority of blacks, but not with the naacp. It browbeat black parents into insisting on “integration.”

    The naacp dishonestly insisted, prior to Brown, that black students would meet White standards of behavior and academics. The White segregationists were never fooled by that lie. As soon as schools were integrated, black kids started cursing openly and sexually molesting White girls, not to mention not coming close to White academic standards. When Whites complained, the naacp screamed, “Racism!” When school administrators disciplined black miscreants, the latter responded by committing vandalism and arson.

    White parents who loved their children, and who weren’t broke, had no choice but to pull them out of the integrated hellholes, and build segregated schools for them out of their own pockets. The naacp just smiled, and bragged that their allies in the federal judiciary and the USSC, would bankrupt the devoted, Southern parents. For every dollar the White parents spent on their own children, the courts forced them to spend at least one dollar on black parents’ kids, while black parents, who didn’t care about their kids’ education, got a free ride.

    That’s been the model for the governmental war on Whites ever since. See Wolters’ The Burden of Brown.

    IIRC, the legal solution to that was that if your state had no black med school or law school, the state would pay the difference between the cost and the in-state tuition for blacks to attend out of state schools. At least on paper. I’m sure that there were bureaucratic obstacles and in any case in those days there weren’t that many blacks who were qualified in the 1st place.

    You’re right that the schools (which BTW were inferior for whites too) were not their only problem, but they were a problem. The South never really accepted the premise of the 14th Amendment and fought rear guard actions on many fronts and for a long time Washington looked the other way. I can understand why they did this given black behavior but if they had reconciled themselves to reality and the law sooner it would have been better for everyone, whites included.

    The naacp dishonestly insisted, prior to Brown, that black students would meet White standards of behavior and academics. The White segregationists were never fooled by that lie.

    “As soon as schools were integrated, black kids started cursing openly and sexually molesting White girls, not to mention not coming close to White academic standards.”

    Exact citations required.

    “When Whites complained, the naacp screamed, “Racism!” When school administrators disciplined black miscreants, the latter responded by committing vandalism and arson.”

    Exact citations required.

    That Bakke decision presumed there were inherent substantive differences based on demographic differences. However I don’t believe that in the over 40 years since Bakke that academics have come up with a single articulation of an actual difference between blacks and whites, men or women, or gays and straights. Apparently “diversity” differences are simply too subtle and sublime for words.

    A stupid lie.

    They were just kids. Bewildered by where they were. Trouble came, eventually. “As soon as schools were integrated” is ignorant and stupid.

    What’s with it with anonys on this fine opinion webzine and their infatuation with calling anyone who dares to challenge their narrative as a “paid stooge” or some variation of that term?
