Comment by PCR:

Is the article by the career police officer racist or the truth? Is it racist even if it is true? Once truth is racist, how can truth be spoken or written? Calling truth “racist” causes easily intimidated people to flee from truth.

The officer is describing what it is like to be a cop in a city with a diverse population in the era of “affirmative action.” He is not using the picture he provides of the black criminal as a portrait of all black Americans. All blacks are not this way.

I can remember when none were. When I was growing up in Atlanta black families were about as stable as white families. White Americans were not afraid of black Americans. There were differences, but they were social, not racial, just as there are social differences between the poor, middle, and upper classes. In cities schools were neighborhood schools and segregated by social or income class. In those days two-car families were rare. Schools were located so that kids from the surrounding community could walk to them. The South objected to school integration because it was seen as a second Reconstruction with northern idiots again intervening in a society that they knew nothing about simply in order to enjoy their virtue-signaling.

In the decades since, nothing good has happened to blacks. The liberals’ welfare programs destroyed the black family, as liberal Democrat Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan pointed out, resulting in fatherless black men from whom the black criminal class rose.

School integration did no good for blacks or for whites. Busing destroyed the PTA associations that had kept a strong parental voice in the public schools. Serious disciplinary problems arose in schools, necessitating police officers and metal detectors in schools. Standards had to be continually lowered for most blacks to graduate with their white classmates, thus cheating both of an education. But lower standards didn’t work either. The latest solution to an inferiority complex and sense of failure among black kids is to tell them that math, science, and the English language are tools of white oppression. Essentially, merit has been eliminated.

Perhaps the worst thing the white liberals have done to blacks is to remove them from accountability. As it became racist to hold blacks accountable, whether in school, on the job, or elsewhere, blacks ceased to learn accountability, whether to themselves or to society. You can see the absence of any sense of accountability in the officer’s description of blacks’ hostility to police. Having taught black Americans that they are victims of white people, the white liberals destroyed black integration into American society. Perhaps this was the liberals’ intent–multiculturalism instead of assimilation.


Blacks are correct that they have been victimized by whites. But their victimization is not by generic white racists. Blacks are victimized by white liberals who destroyed the black family and black accountability, who taught blacks that they were victims and to hate white people, thereby disrupting and preventing assimilation of blacks into American society. All the while the white liberals preened themselves on their compassionate leadership of the blacks and their funding of black agitation movements.

What can be done about it? I do not know. What can be done about a ruin when it is impossible to even acknowledge the ruin?

The US is undergoing societal collapse, and all that the hokey business advertisements from marketing firms depicting multicultural families achieve is a feel good hoax that cloaks the ruin behind a curtain.
