As you all know, I follow a certain “Brotha Wolf‘s” blog. He’s a pawn of the Race Grievance Industry and a dyed-in-the-wool racist. He’s convinced that white people are nothing more than racists, or closeted racists. Furthermore, according to Brotha Wolf, America is a country awash in racism directed at him and other black people. Brotha Wolf is, all-in-all, nothing more than a typical blind follower of his leftist masters. He’s a sheep in wolf’s clothing.
However, in the exchange that I’m going to show you, he has conceded there are are some decent white people.
Maybe BW can grow, after all! It has not looked good up ’til now.
I had a back-and-forth with him a while ago, that was typified by the following pattern: (1) I’d throw out a concept for discussion, and (2) Brotha Wolf’s readers, and BW himself, would simply accuse me of racism and ignore the challenge. After a while, Brotha Wolf banned me which, as I’ve noticed, is a habit of the left. They silence those whom they cannot best in debate.
Well, apparently someone else has gotten under BW’s pelt now! A certain “flyonthewall” has engaged BW and his readers and posited a simple challenge to them: flyonthewall, a black man, asked Brotha Wolf and his readers to explain how it is that in a supposedly racist country, economic differences between the races disappear completely if a family’s parents were married and stayed married. In other words, there is no meaningful difference whatsoever in the economic achievement of any race if the people being observed had parents who were married and stayed married.
Needless to say, Brotha Wolf has not liked this one bit, and has come at flyonthewall with all rhetorical guns blazing. He’s called fly a liar, a white man, and worst of all — horrors! — a “Conservative!”
For those of you who followed my colleagues’ and my various run-ins with the RGI, you’ll recall that I catalogued all the ways in which the RGI dodges, evades or ignores invitations to engage in substantive discussion. I called it: “CoMIRSUS(LiMiR)MOMOPE”(1) and Brotha Wolf broke it all out in his interaction with “flyonthewall.”
But he hasn’t addressed flyonthewall’s challenge. Nor has anyone of his readers. The juvenile Herneith weighed in and did her usual: all insults all the time, and no substance. Another reader, MzNikita did the same thing. I’ve reproduced the exchange below, because I don’t know whether BW will keep it up. Of course, BW has realized that he’s not intellectually up to the fly’s challenge, so is threatening to ban him. What a shame. You know, I’ve never once seen a Conservative blog ban anyone. Not once.
Without further ado, here is BW’s blog post, and the subsequent comments. I’ve added some additional comments in [square brackets and in red font] in line with the post and the comments.
<————- BEGINNING OF BROTHA WOLF’S POST AND COMMENTS ————->
Basically, the experiences of African Americans in this country continue to get discounted over and over by those who strongly claim that racism no longer exists. [Editor’s Note: See?] Yet, some of the same naysayers believe that racism against whites is on the rise. [Editor’s Note: It’s easy to make that point. The racism of black people is rewarded with talk shows (Al Sharpton) and high posts in government (Eric Holder)] If racism is no longer here, then shouldn’t that mean that there is no racism against whites by that line of reasoning? [Editor’s Note: And again, BW tries to argue against a point that no one has made.]
The objectors that refute the existence of racism [Editor’s Note: who don’t exist 🙂 ] will go out of their way to tell you so even if and when you’ve gone through a racial experience no matter the magnitude. They will let you know how race was never a factor. It was anything else but racial. And to assume that it is racial is, of course, racist. [Editor’s Note: In all my interactions with BW, I’ve never seen anyone try to make this point. BW spends his time and effort trying to swat away arguments that no one’s ever made to him.]
The real deal is that denying the existence of racism helps to continue to cycle of racism. [Editors’ Note: Then I guess BW has nothing to worry about, thank goodness! 🙂 ] It doesn’t make things better. Just the opposite. Refuting the experiences, including the emotions of those who’ve been through a racist situation, is to deny the humanity of those who have had theirs harmed in some way. [Editor’s Note: Thank goodness, then, that no one’s trying to do this. 🙂 Flyonthewall never does this in the interaction below either.] Refusing to listen or learn is a sign of shallow arrogance, especially when that person turns around and starts explaining why you are wrong even though they, themselves, have no idea what’s being discussed. [Editor’s note: This is actually kind of funny, coming from BW who apparently spends all his time tilting at imaginary windmills. ]
My suggestion is simple; shut up, listen and learn. It’s that simple. You are not remotely aware of what it’s like being a person of color in this nation. [Editor’s Note: He said this to a black man. I guess BW’s none too bright.] So, to talk as if you do know makes yourself look like a total asswipe. Why not try to humble yourselves, open your minds and then, you may learn something. You may even start to realize how denying a disease like racism will only lead to terminal damage. [Editor’s Note: And this sounds vaguely like a threat to do some kind of deadly violence to fly. BW is nothing if not a constant confirmation of all the negative stereotypes that racist white people have of blacks. Thank goodness, he’s only one person! ]

Well! That was fun, wasn’t it?!?
Flyonthewall’s main challenge remained unaddressed. Because there’s really no counter to it. It is, it seems to me, dispositive.
You simply can’t have, as flyonthewall indicates, a situation in which a racist country produces indisputable equality of economic opportunity between the races, under any circumstances. That an intact family results in economic prosperity for the children in that family, for all races, more than 90% of the time, is pretty firm evidence that America is simply not a racist country.
