[Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively on VDARE.com]

The Suits at VDARE.com won’t let me spell out the N-word in full. I understand the reasons for that and am totally on board with the policy. It’s irksome, though; it annoys me. [VDARE.com Suits: it annoys us too, but it’s because Tech Totalitarian corporate censorware would block us for using it].

Not because I dislike black people. There are many I like a lot. Here’s one: scholar of human language John McWhorter of Columbia University .Back in 2016 I noted a column Professor McWhorter had published at The Daily Beast under the title Anti-Racism, Our Flawed New Religion.” Anti-racism is, he wrote, is “what we worship, as sincerely and fervently as many worship God and Jesus and, among most Blue State Americans, more so.”

But I think that a situation where one part of the citizenry is prohibited, on pain of career destruction, from uttering a word that the other part uses with perfect liberty, is unjust.

I don’t mind taboo words in themselves. Probably every organized society needs taboo words. A taboo word should be taboo to everybody, though. Otherwise you’re in one of those situations Sir James Frazer wrote about in The Golden Bough, one of those primitive societies where certain words can only be spoken by members of the ruling elite.

Well, here’s a couple of stories from the past few days that I’m going to put under the heading “N-word Watch.” I may make this a regular feature.

  • First story: Meet Kyle Larson, 27 years old, a race-car driver.

Larson was a rising star in NASCAR. Apparently—I didn’t know this, and I hope I’m getting it right—you don’t get to be a star driver in NASCAR unless you are employed by an organization that runs teams of drivers.

Larson was an employee of an outfit named Chip Ganassi Racing. He was doing so well, he was preparing to go free agent, so that Chip Ganassi would have to fight a bidding war with other outfits for Larson’s services. Pretty nice career spot to be in for a 27-year-old.

Last week, it all fell apart. Sunday night, wearing a headset for some kind of live-streamed virtual event, Larson lost communication with a colleague—a white guy, as it happens. Checking the mike, he said: “You can’t hear me, [N-word]?”

Except of course he didn’t say [N-word]. He said the actual taboo word.

It was a hot mike. Larson was suspended without pay by Ganassi early Monday, then suspended indefinitely by NASCAR. Then big sponsors—Chevrolet, McDonald’s, Credit One Bank—started pulling out, so Ganassi totally fired him. [Larson Fired After Sponsors Drop NASCAR Driver over Racial Slur, AP, April 14, 2020]

For using the N-word—with a white colleague.

Larson, by the way, is half-Japanese, an unusual thing in auto racing. His grandparents spent time in an internment camp in California during World War II, so he has some victim cred.

It didn’t help. Blackety-Black victimhood trumps every other kind.

So here’s this scholar teaching First Amendment Law.

Well, last October the University of Connecticut Police Department arrested two students who were filmed shouting the N-word while walking in a parking lot[Two students arrested in connection to racist comments, by Gabriella DeBenedictis, The Daily Campus, October 22, 2019]. The students were loud enough to be heard by two people in an adjacent apartment complex. These people called the campus police, the students were arrested and charged under a state law that makes it an offense to ridicule someone’s race.

Volokh, our scholar, led a class discussion about that incident. He argued, that the law is (a) unconstitutional, and (b) was anyway misapplied in this Connecticut case. He invited students to argue the pros and cons with him—just as a college teacher should do.

Along the way, however, he uttered the N-word in all its taboo fulness.

Some students apparently suffered hurt feelings and, when they had been revived and restored to full functioning, ratted on Prof. Volokh to the college authorities.

The law school dean, Jennifer Mnookin (n.b. Lance Weltonfemale, pictured right) issued a sniveling public apology for Volokh’s gross and shameless breach of political correctness. Volokh has defended himself spiritedly UCLA Law Dean Apologizes for My Having Accurately Quoted the Word——–n Discussing a Case.

But Dean Mnookin [Email her | Tweet her] has responded, ominously:

While he has the right to make that choice as a matter of academic freedom and First Amendment rights, so long as he is not using this or other words with animus, many of us—myself included—strongly believe that he could achieve his learning goals more effectively and empathetically without repeating the word itself.

UCLA Law apologizes for First Amendment scholar quoting n-word in class, by Greg Piper, The College Fix, April 15, 2020

Since when did the First Amendment not apply to “animus”?

I have not so far heard that Eugene Volokh has been fired from UCLA Law School. Perhaps he has tenure, I don’t know.

If he should lose his job over this, I understand that Chip Ganassi Racing is looking for drivers.

John Derbyshire [email him] writes an incredible amount on all sorts of subjects for all kinds of outlets. (This no longer includes National Review, whose editors had some kind of tantrum and fired him.) He is the author of We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism and several other books. He has had two books published by VDARE.com com: FROM THE DISSIDENT RIGHT (also available in Kindle) and FROM THE DISSIDENT RIGHT II: ESSAYS 2013.

  1. So the “N-Word” Can Only be Spoken By Our Ruling Elite?

    No, of course not. The “N-word” can be spoken by any Nigga to another Nigga, as no insult at all, and any Nigga to any non-Nigga as a word to be cherished, because it makes one feel one with the Niggas. It’s complicated, John, and you wouldn’t understand because you’re not, well a …

    I must admit it took me years before I suddenly realised why Americans say “snicker” instead of “snigger”.

    Would one of those google word searches reveal when Americans stopped saying, or rather writing, “snigger”? I must find out how to do one. Then I could check on “niggardly” too.

    It’s easy for foreigners to tease, of course. Therefore they should. Live free or die, chaps. Home of the brave, etc, etc.

    In case of doubt, I’ve never used the word myself; my manners are better than that, I hope.

  6. Word magic. Magic words. European civilization is being dragged backwards by these proto-humanoids. Just as with genetic mixing creating hybrids, so too does cultural mixing.

    Liberals believe that with policies like school integration, whites will exert a civilizing force upon blacks and that that pull will be only one way. But this defies Newton’s Law that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

    Everyone of any sense knows that without an anchor point, one will not be able to pull the other without also itself being dragged somewhere towards the middle. And that anchor point is precisely what we whites are abandoning.

    If we held to our first principles, in this case, free speech, then we could possibly exert a beneficent force upon blacks. But we are not doing this. We are meeting them more than halfway, slipping backwards into superstition.

    Blacks destroy everything they touch. There’s no reason to soft pedal this with qualifiers such as “Not because I dislike black people. There are many I like a lot.”

    What difference does it make whether one “dislikes” black people? They’re still the product of the interbreeding of a distant relative (of 200,000 years ago) with an anthropoid—probably homo erectus—whose last contact with our line was 700,000 years ago. They simply aren’t human beings as we understand the term. The extent to which they are human beings is that to which they have interbred with modern Europeans, Asians etc. Sorry, but them’s the facts.

  8. Ben Gunn says:

    The taboo is the trademark, not of the civilized man, but of the savage, and wherever it exists it is a relentless and effective enemy of enlightenment. The savage is the most meticulously moral of men, there is scarcely an act of his daily life that is not conditioned by unyielding prohibitions and obligations, most of them logically unintelligible. The mob man, a savage set amid civilization, cherishes a code of the same draconian kind. He believes firmly that right and wrong are immovable things—that they have an actual and unchangeable existence, and any challenge of them, by word or act, is a crime against society. And the concept of wrongness, of course, he always confuses with the concept of mere differentness—to him the two are indistinguishable. Anything strange is to be combatted, it is of the Devil. The mob-man cannot grasp ideas in their native nakedness. They must be dramatized and personalized for him, and provided with either white wings or forked tails. All discussion of them, to interest him, must take the form of pursuit and scorching of demons. He cannot think of a heresy without thinking of a heretic to be caught, condemned, and burned. – H. L. Mencken 1922

  9. I would suggest going to Owen Benjamin’s daily Dlive stream at 9:30 a.m. Pacific Time, he has a very splendid way of explaining how Free Speech should operate in the World.

    The issue at hand is when a person of dark melanin skin steals your bicycle you can’t say, “Hey that nigger stole my bike”? Really?? I care nothing for the feelings of black folks who steal other people’s property, so saying “nigger” when the nigger is riding off on YOUR bike seems awful justified to me.

    Would calling someone a necrophiliac be worse that calling someone a nigger? I mean having sex with dead bodies would appear and be much, much worse than being called a nigger, wouldn’t it? No? The necrophiliac can hold his head high in the face of black folks being called nigger which means black?

    If that’s incorrect then there is NO 1st Amendment to discuss, because in this instance it never existed in the fist place.

    “Not because I dislike black people. There are many I like a lot.” That implies that he likes blacks generally, that most blacks are likable and even admirable. It’s remarkable that someone as intelligent and realistic as “the Derb” isn’t as realistic and sophisticated enough to understand that, in discussing race, it’s imperative to distinguish between groups and individuals. Individual blacks are likable and adnirable -what percentage and number I have no idea?- but blacks as a group are awful, a reality confirmed by life not only in Haiti and the countries of sub-Saharan Africa but also Detroit, Flint, St. Louis, Memphis, Baltimore, Chicago, Birmingham, and muriads of other cities that have been blighted or destroyed by blacks depending on whether they’re a majority or a large minority of the population. Every black-majority city in the U.S. and black country, save for a few small slands with billion-dollar tourist industies, is a hell-hole with rampant criminality, violence, poverty, dysfunction. corruption, etc.

    And for every John McWhorter, Thomas Sowell, Clarence Thomas, Larry Elder, etc. (and all of these good blacks are race-denialists), how many Jesse Jacksons, Al Sharptons, Louis Farakhans, Barack Obams, Dom Lemons, Joy Reids, Cornel Wests, Michael Eric Dysons, ad nsusem, and myriads even worse than them who are not well-known, who blame all the problems of blacks on whites and “racism” and the legacy of slavery and “Jim Crow” and colonialism?

  14. Not for nothing the decline began with the inclusion of women into academia and politics. They’re first and foremost, not that bright. On top of that, they’re cowards and hypocrites. You wanted women in politics and academia? You’re getting it every day you leave these broads in power.

    It’s really weird, but I’m a 52 year old ex-red-head (now bald) who only recently learned that ‘ginger’ is an anti-red-head slur. I first became aware of it from an episode of South Park. I just assumed that ‘ginger’ was an anagram for n—-r. It made perfect sense for the episode, which I understood to be a parody. I was surprised and amazed to discover that ‘ginger’ has been used as an anti-red-head slur for a loooong time. Don’t know how I failed to notice for so long.

    You’re a misogynist lunatic and ignoramus who lives in a fantasy world. Trump was elected because of decades of tragic misrule by the left, predminantly male, and the “cuck”-neocon opposition, almost entirely male, gentile and Jewish. Tump woulld have lost in an historic landslide if virtually all white females had voted for Hillary Clinton.

    Men, leftists and “cuck’-neocon “nveer-Trumpers, far more than women, are culpable for open borders and an invasion of tens of milliions of legal and illegal aliens and their off-spring that will soon transform the U.S. into a nonwhite-majority hell-hole and dystopia in which European-Americans will be an increasingly dispossessed and persecuted minority and no Republican will ever be elected president again the Democrats will rule the House and Senate forever with inceasing and increasingly nonwhote majorities.

    Trump was also elected because of disastrous, unnecessary wars. And men, predominantly Jewish neocns and their “conservatism, Inc. sychophants like George W. Bush and John McCain, vitrually all male, were culpable for the invasion and occupation of Iraq and the catastrophic effects. I could go on and on but why bother.

    If what you say is true, Musliim nations would be utopian paradises, deomonstrably superior to Western countries. Why don’t you and your ilk move to Iran or Saudi Arabia, where women and girls are enslaved and stoned to death and beheaded for trivial and imaginary offenses. And good riddance!

    Long ago, Swedish economist Gunnar Myrdal in his book, ‘An American Dilemma, speculated on just when a negro came to realize he was an unwanted citizen in a society he could neither understand nor affect. Myrdal figured it was about age 8 when the full implications of being a negro hit.

    Myrdal was writing in the pre war South and a lot has changed since then but negro ‘progress’, such as it has been, is still artificial and depends on government edicts and subsidy. Negro labor has been replaced by mestizo immigration so the negro’s position in society is far more precarious today than back then. Mestizo’s are impervious to negro claims of ancient injustice and corona virus is putting an end to lucrative sports and entertainment careers. The recent massive increase in government spending to prop up the economy is a last hurrah as government debt levels cannot keep on expanding. The money has run out and the negro, blighted by half a century of Affirmative Action subsidy, is going to fall far and fast.

    Sadly, even as adults, negroes remain blissfully unaware of what misfits they are. The intellectual age of the typical adult negro is that of an eleven year old white child. This is before the mind develops the capacity for formal, logical reasoning. So virtually the entire body of Western History of Ideas is opaque to the adult negro.

    Being opaque, the negro rejects it as nonsense and this is where Marxist critique comes to his rescue. He is told that the whole body of Western thought is a plot carried out by power-hungry racists. Aha! Now it all makes sense. It’s all whitey hocus pocus meant only to baffle and confuse him. Well, he’s got a bit of word magic of his own. Two can play that game, “Don’t call me rigger, whitey!“ he announces triumphantly.

    As usual, there is a great of Derbyshire degeneracy and stupidity that needs commenting.

    You scribble about the “n-word” but refuse to offer a solution – a separate state for blacks. This way we wouldn’t have to deal with blacks and the problems they cause. Time would not be wasted on stupid articles like yours. But, of course, you can’t offer such a solution because of your Chinese females.

    As to Kyle Larson, at least he is half-Japanese instead of half-Chinese like your barely mediocre, emotionally troubled Chinese offspring. The Japanese are the only intelligent Asians and have a first world nation. China is a shithole.

    As to Chinese shitholery, you scribbled a stupid article about globalization being Sinification. https://www.unz.com/jderbyshire/globalization-meant-sinification-until-china-virus-intervened/

    China never was and never will a global power. China is collapsing. They are the fastest aging country in the world and have a barely average IQ. Their high abortion rate has destroyed them. This is a good thing. Trump has changed our trade policy with them and other countries are rapidly pulling out their businesses. China is gone.

    In your article you also mentioned a previous article about importing Sino-fascism. You imported this to America when you imported your Chinese female and begat anti-white, anti-Western Chinese offspring. Trump is working on expelling Chinese students. Australia’s Pauline Hanson will deal with expelling the Chinese from Australia. Do your part by expelling yourself and your Chinese family to China.

And few are more fervent supporters of Israel & organized Jewry than Derbystein.
    It’s not clear then why a supposed free speech advocate wouldn’t “mind taboo words in themselves” or why, “Probably every organized society needs taboo words.” But if “A taboo word should be taboo to everybody, though.

    Would calling someone a necrophiliac be worse than calling someone a nigger? I mean having sex with dead bodies would appear and be much, much worse than being called a nigger, wouldn’t it? No? The necrophiliac can hold his head high in the face of black folks being called nigger which means black?

    That’s a telling observation and a good question. The black bicycle thief you described (and to whom you ascribe the term ‘nigger’) deserves all the scorn that the term implies. It is, after all, an utterance designed to identify a (familiar) wrongdoer and express disdain. And deservedly so! The shoe fits.

    Just as there are many respectable ‘African Americans’ out there, there are plenty of niggers, too. Big deal. You haven’t noticed, Derb?

    The N-word describes a well-known behavioral syndrome: black thuggery, violence, and dishonesty. It’s a pattern that’s been noted for centuries. Crime statistics confirm it unambiguously.

    Admittedly, excessive use of the N-word is vulgar, inappropriate, and insulting–but that can be said about a host of hate-filled words, many of which are in everyday circulation and considered perfectly acceptable. So why the hypocritical distinction?

    ‘Hate speech’ is all about who’s sending the message and who’s receiving it. It’s been entirely politicized, from start to finish. The unspeakable N-word in question (which dottering Derb does not even dare to spell out) is merely the tip of a larger, unacknowledged iceberg. But Derb manages to miss the big picture.

    For example, I recall one time how enraged and insulted I felt (back in the 90’s) when TV personality, Bill Maher, casually called Presidential candidate Pat Buchanan the ‘N-word’. No, Maher did not call Buchanan a ‘nigger’. Maher called Buchanan something far worse, and right on national TV. Afterwards, Maher’s TV audience howled with laughter and approval.

    Maher smeared Pat Buchanan as a “Nazi”. This is the true ‘N-word’ of our time.

    Buchanan was not present for this character assassination. But it doesn’t matter. Politically correct ‘hate speech’ remains alive and well, then and now.

    Keep in mind that there was no internet back in the 90’s; just Jewish-dominated TV, radio, cinema, and print media. Buchanan’s candidacy was uniquely courageous at that moment in history because he was one of the very few public figures (and the most famous one) that dared to bring attention to the Zionist lobby for its immense, untouchable, and deadly impact around the world–not to mention its constant meddling in Washington. (Years earlier, on PBS TV, Buchanan referred to Capitol Hill as “Israeli-held territory”).

    While Buchanan’s observations were largely accurate, his public focus upon these truths involving black and Jewish group conduct (from a white perspective) were absolutely taboo. But why?

    Speech-related taboos are designed also to short-circuit critical thinking. It’s a form of soft tyranny. If you can regulate public speech, private thoughts are also influenced.

    Modern taboos about race are in place to prevent whites from noticing both intractable black criminality as well as inordinate Jewish power. The contrived celebrations of ‘Black History Month’ and ‘Holocaust Remembrance’ are part of a top-down indoctrination. These ‘celebrations’ also steer whites away from their own collective history. And future. Speech codes overwhelmingly target white America. It’s for a reason.

    To summarize: 1) Blacks and whites are equal and interchangeable, and 2) holy Israel is America’s best Best BEST democratic ally way over yonder. So let’s send our boys over there and take out the bad guys now! Listening Iran?

    Dictating the boundaries of political discourse are all part of a top-down process. You are the target.

    Objective: eradicate white identity, white traditions, and white cohesion. This is what many modern speech taboos are about.

    The custodians of political correctness are targeting disdainful speech (i.e., ‘hate speech’) but primarily when it comes from the pro-white Right (or anti-Semitic Left).

    Meanwhile, Jews and manageable leftists confidently circulate contemptible ‘N-words’ of their own.

    The poisonous charade continues.

An underlying issue of the Larson incident is that he was likely using the word as a term of comradery; as in “Can you hear me, bro, dude, homie, pal,” etc. This is a learned application of the word by at least the last two generations of American young people as our culture teaches them to worship the negro and his ghetto culture. At the age of 27, Larson has no doubt been immersed with the sounds and imagery of the magic negro since birth, in sports, TV, and music.

    So he is in fact being punished for subscribing to the very degeneracy that he has been taught his whole life to celebrate. A cruel irony.

    There’s nothing archaic, or limited to Southern or Eastern England, about kilter, nary, or scrimp.

    I dare say that it’s from the US that the following have, more or less, entered common speech: pesky, invite.

    Some Americanisms are simply altogether welcome: what would we do without “commuter”?

    Some are not, at least not to me. I dislike “double down” for our “double up”, especially since “double up” seems the entirely natural way to describe someone increasing his stake or risk. I don’t like the redundant “up” as in parked up or moored up. And so forth.

    Of course I don’t take exception to Americans using Americanisms: that would be bonkers. It’s Britons affecting their use that I don’t care for. It’s the same sort of bollocks as quoting silly Latin tags.

    I add: I am old enough to remember when many of the Americans I met spoke their own English in a terse, clear, direct way that I found pleasant and, at its best, delightful. Now it seems often to be verbose, ugly, and often ambiguous. Why the deterioration?

    And while I am giving my feelings this little outing, what on earth has happened to the accents of American women? If I see online a snippet of an American news broadcast, the male – if there is one – will typically have a clear, baritone voice that’s easy for me to follow. The woman will typically honk and squawk at a high pitch, making her painful to listen to and difficult to understand.

    the sponsors, all the tech giants

    For the most part they are not playing along because of some supposed principle: they play along because gullible fuckwits who can’t think good (H/T Zoolander) are easily their most profitable customer segment. They spend money working out who those people are (all they really need to do identify people who buy Apple products within 8 months of the product’s release date).

    The tech giants, in particular, get a bunch of their revenue from advertising. To make money from advertising, you are specifically targeting a part of the audience that is so stupid that they
     • can be influenced to buy shit they don’t want, and
     • can’t use a remote control (for TV) or install an ad-blocker (for online).

    To be fair, on some platforms – Foxtel[1], for example – there’s quite a lot of effort and expense to co-ordinate ad-breaks cross-sectionally, so that remote-capable viewers can’t switch channels to avoid ads. That’s why Foxtel has so many ‘filler’ ads: ads for the channel simpliciter; for the channel’s own shows; for other Fox channels etc. Those help ‘align’ ad-timings on channels where they can’t sell the ad-space. It helps that content producers know the score, and so they build their shows so that there are breaks at the right point (e.g., nobody’s halfway through a 45 second dialogue when it’s time for an ad).

    Imagine if ad-revenue had been literary-publishing’s main revenue source, and that there were ads every few minutes’ reading – for the same book; for other books by the same author etc. People who read ‘on purpose’ don’t tolerate that: even newspapers rarely interrupt the layout to try to get eyeballs on ads.

    Advertising is aimed at stupid proles – which is why ‘award winning’ ads are so brain-gratingly, teeth-grindingly annoying until you discipline yourself to think “This dreck is not aimed at my demographic. They don’t hold my demographic in such utter contempt that they think I’ll find it convincing.

    [1] Foxtel is an Australian pay-TV provider.

    [2] I have read that Seth McFarlane deliberately sets the natural ‘plot breaks’ in his shows at points where it’s ½ an ad-slot out of whack, in order to fuck up ad timings.

China has lied, concealed and misled about the origins of the epidemic. This lack of transparency allowed the virus to spread unabated from Wuhan to the rest of the world resulting in what will probably be the deaths of over 100,000 Americans.

  77. Several generations ago the word “gay” had a totally different meaning than its current contemporary version. Most people understand the different meanings perfectly. A generation or so ago some well meaning blacks had the bright idea of taking the sting out of the horrific n-word slur – they’d give it a slightly different spelling and an entirely new meaning, a meaning that was endearing rather than demeaning. Unlike the gay word definition dichotomy, intelligent people(even some who claim superior intelligence) are having difficulty understanding the difference in definition between the stingless version and the sordid version that has a long history of racial denigration. Furthermore, they can’t understand why most people would have trouble believing white folks(the originators of the sordid version of the n-word) would be using the stingless version when using the word. And why would whites be so obsessed with the need to use the word anyway???

    It’s for this inability for some white folks to recognize the noble attempt to take the sting out of the n-word slur that I too would call for the censorship of the word for all, including the rappers. Apparently there is something magical about the n-word that makes alternative meanings, like the gay word alternates, impossible. Sigh.

You are an old white man, so naturally (and arrogantly) you believe your opinion has some special value. Let me let you in on a secret Old Sport, if you ain’t ready to die for it, it’s of no value.

    It’s like using pesticides in your yard, they will probably kill the bugs, but in the long term, you will attract stronger bugs, ingest poisons, and poison the water supply. As a short term cure (and teaching agent) effective, in the long-term you probably should have used natural methods.

As a matter of public-spirit and civic mindedness, as well as basic good manners and good taste, every non-black person should just agree to never use the Forbidden Word, not even neutrally in a theoretical sense or to prove a point. Just to be polite. Just to practice sensible bonhomie. Let’s all just agree not to say it or use it, because it is an oddity of our culture that good manners requires we not do so.

    Eventually blacks will get tired of it (they’re not using it intramurally just to be perverse; for them the word has weird and complex historical and cultural valences that it is frankly hard for a White person to understand). In two generations or so it will be an archaism that nobody will use, everyone will forget about it, then we can all move on to more important matters.

    In the meantime though, just to illustrate the silliness of the whole affair, I suggest that whenever the thing comes up textually and must be danced around to avoid offense, that instead of calling it “the N-Word,” which confers upon it magick powers and mystical importance, we call it instead The Naughty Naughty No-No Word.

    Preferably in a high-pitched cutesy Shirley Temple voice. “Officer! That man said the No-No! He called me the Naughty Word! He said the Naughty Naughty No-No Word!” Eventually hilarity will ensue.

    I’ve had my computer for six years.

    I’ve read several articles that deal with China’s one-child policy and high abortion rate. Some articles were on trad Catholic websites and some were on conservative websites. This is why I’m surprised when politicians start babbling that China is going to takeover the world. They can’t.

    As to Chinese IQ, all you have to do is compare Japan and China. The Japanese are the only intelligent Asians in Asia. They have a first world country. Japan is a free, democratic country. China is a totalitarian shithole. The average Chinese IQ is about 85. We get their tiny higher IQ elite in the West. Think of India. India’s average IQ is 82. India is a shithole. However, we have a few high IQ Indians in the West who give the impression that most Indians are like them. They are not.

    I have a sister who has traveled to China, Hong Kong and Singapore for her company. She hated these countries. I asked her why. She said the Chinese are stupid, dirty and rude. I told her that in the West we are led to believe that Hong Kong and Singapore are modern Western style nations. She said there is a superficial prosperity in the cities, but outside of them it’s ugly.

    ‘ …I was surprised and amazed to discover that ‘ginger’ has been used as an anti-red-head slur for a loooong time. Don’t know how I failed to notice for so long.’

    You didn’t notice it because you accepted your oppression, and you accepted your oppression because, being a ginger, you don’t have a soul.

    This last was clearly explained in the episode of South Park you yourself admitted watching.

  92. @attilathehen

    You dismiss China as a 3rd world “shithole,” as though the Chinese are the equivalent of sub-Saharan Africans.

    Many American regard the Chinese as underpaid automatons making cheap crap that unfairly competes with superior American products.

    50 years ago many Americans had the exact same attitude about the Japanese.

    I’m not defending globalism, but it’s a careless mistake to underestimate the Chinese.

    Paddy, old Sport, i think you missunderstand. If you feel that your best contribution to the preservation of whites would be to get all of your friends from the nursing home together and start a new midnight riders vigilante group, against all of the kneegrows calling you a Honkee, i will not lift a finger to stop you. All i ask that you take video. Might make a great news story.

    I let you know earlier i dont think commiting felonies is the most logical way to deal with rude people, as there are consequences to this
    …but people do it.

    But P., one othet thing when you get the midnight riders re-started and you start lynching blacks, at you guys ages i would think of using golf carts, not horses..

    nstead, you invoke the justification that might makes right — your “Quantavious the middle linebacker” can freely use anti-White racist slurs because he’ll “knock out” any Whitey who resists.

    To be honest, Truth, vintage African-American ethnic invective no longer have much validity.

    Maybe if you were in New Jersey and called somebody a “Guinea” it would be an insult.

    But most old-school African-American invective like Sanford use to sling at his Irish and Polish friends at the junkyard like that fat bearded Irish-American guy who he called a mick really have no meaning any more.

    Whatever Whitey does for you (and Whitey’s done PLENTY!), it’s never ever enough.

    Humor, affirmative action style. What else could we expect from you.

    Reminds me of the L.A. nightclub where a Black comedian came on stage.

    I called out, “Tell us some honkey jokes.”

    A couple at the next table followed up, “Yeah, tell us some honkey jokes!”

    The comedian’s swagger deflated and he immediately walked off-stage.

    Apparently he had no other jokes, and he knew his honkey jokes weren’t going to elicit the expected embarrassed nervous laughter from us honkeys.

    My good Dindu:

    I’ll have to explain this for you too, so listen carefully: People don’t necessarily live in every city they’ve ever been in.

    BTW, L.A. might be a good place for you…

    (((Hollywood))) hires Blacks to put on costumes & look like they’re doctors & engineers & sheit. If you play doctor (((they)))’ll give you a stethoscope to put around your neck while (((they))) shoot the scene. You’ll be given a clipboard to hold, making you look real smart & cool around White guys who are hired to act like dorks. (Unfortunately, you will have to learn to speak standard English, but only while you recite the cool script (((they))) give you.)

    It’s estimated that there are enough Black “doctors” in (((Hollywood))) & (((Madison Avenue))) to care for every Black in the world, without you having to demand that other races take care of you because of your foolish unhealthy habits.

    Now run along, the Unz folks expect intelligent conversation, and I’m partly responsible for you letting them down. So have the last word, my good Dindu.

    Goodbye.

    In the technological sense, no I have had no problems.

    But in the economic sense, I do have problems with my computer. I come from a working class background and know the problems caused by outsourcing much of our manufacturing to China. I try to buy American as much as possible, but this has been difficult. I’ve only owned one car – an American car. I had no problems with it. I would not buy a foreign car.

    At least with Trump he is trying to bring manufacturing back to America. And with this Wuhan flu crisis, the return of manufacturing to America should accelerate.

    Some years ago, a white employee in the office of the mayor of Washington, D.C. used the word “niggardly” (correctly) with reference to some public expenditure. There was a huge outcry, and he was fired.

    It turned out that he was gay. The D.C. gay community then mounted a hue and cry about his firing. He was re-hired.

    As someone with “no dog in the fight” I found the combat between grievance groups interesting, and somewhat amusing, to observe.

    Whose grievance has precedence – the negro’s or the homo’s? My view was that, in this case, the sodomite was right because he used the word in question correctly, and of course it makes no reference to the condition of negritude. However, that’s not why he was given back his job.

  116. It didn’t help. Blackety-Black victimhood trumps every other kind.

    Nope! The Jews have the victim market cornered. Reparations for the historic 6 (undocumented) billion, not a shekel for others. Mine Mine it’s all Mine.

    Hollywood types have been at the forefront of racial brainwashing, pushing the false mantra of “racial equality. While in the 1920s and 1930s, Hollywood portrayal of blacks in film bordered on stereotypes, which still DO have a large semblance of TRUTH. Blacks were not seen as “equals” but being of a different race, showing a lack of cultural and social maturity, and best, left to their own to “figure out” how to exist in the white-dominated society of the day.

    That all changed in the 1950s where miscegenation became the rule, rather than the exception in Hollywood films. The apex of the miscegenation movement, and the idea that “blacks were just as capable as whites, if not more so” came to fruition with race-mixing movies such as “To Sir, With Love” and the seminal miscegenation film, “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner”, the prime example being actor Sidney Poitier, who was always portrayed as a soft-spoken, highly intelligent, intellectual negro while his white charges were almost always portrayed as “ne-er-do-wells” and even as savages.

    The rest is history. Miscegenation and the false notion of “black superiority” is now not only ingrained in Hollywood movies but in the rest of popular culture as well. In movies, whites almost always report to a black superior, although in real-life, that is almost never the case. Blacks are seen as socially and intellectually superior, while whites are portrayed as “pasty-white” ignorant “bumpkins”.

    The “mainstream media” has also become complicit in the “brainwashing” of white society, always making excuses for black criminality and misbehavior, calling young black criminals “teens”, and many times not mentioning race, although it is well known, when the “mainstream media” talks about “teens”, they are actually talking about “blacks”.

    The covering up of black criminality and social dysfunctionality ranks with the lies and fabrications of the “holocaust ™” industry, which also demonizes whites.

    The American “civil-rights” movement of the 1950s and 1960s was completely orchestrated by jews, with help from other unwary religious and social institutions.

    The “aim” of jew-run Hollywood” was to “educate” the (white) masses in the preposition that “negroes were equal to and just as good as whites”.

    In the early 1960s, I (along with many other whites) walked out of a Catholic Mass when the priest, during his homily stated that “negroes were just as good as whites, and many times much better”.

    The N-word is now my go-to curse word. The seven words you can’t say on television no longer apply because those words are used all over television, movies and popular culture. N****r, K1k*, Fa***t, Ch*nk, etc., are all stand-ins now for the formerly offensive scatological terms we used to use for cursing. A young English Professor once told me that our curse words were derived from prejudice against the ordinary language of the ” Saxon dogs” by the Angles. Now the mildly humorous terms we used to describe other races have become the most forbidden words ever. Frankly, I’m not really sad about this turn of events. Sexual and scatological terms are simply kind of boring. All hail the new cursing paradigm!!! Thanks …… Baba WaWa!
