Let’s Play the RGI’s Game For a Bit


The Race Grievance Industry is fond of taking a single incident, and using it to say, “See? See? This proves that all white people are racists, and that there’s all sorts of ‘White Privilege’ around, and that America is awash in toxic ‘White Supremacy!’” and so forth.

The feminists are the same, as are the goons of the Gay Grievance Industry, and the trans flakes and all the other grievance mongers of the vast sprawling American Grievance Industry.

Well, the following is a true story, and I thought I’d try my hand at the Great Grievance Game. It turned out to be easier than I thought it would be. Maybe that’s because I’ve duked it out with race addicts and race hucksters here and here.

Or, there’s not much to the Great Grievance Game and we all should see right through it.


Here’s the story:

I was driving down a short, very curvy side street that connects two busy roads. As a result of this side street’s position, it can be pretty busy too. Usually the flow of traffic on this little side road is brisk. Not today. This particular day, the other cars, and I, were crawling along. As I turned a particularly sharp corner, I saw what was causing the delay: a few hundred yards ahead, three young people were walking along, three abreast, entirely occupying the left-hand side of the road.

As a result of the kids’ insouciant carelessness, the cars driving on their side of the road, coming toward me, had to swing way out wide, into my lane, to avoid hitting the kids.

One car on the left side of the road would pass, then one from my lane, then one  from the left lane and so on. It continued on that way, until I finally made it up to the logjam made by the kids. I looked over at the kids and saw that they were three black kids, two boys and a girl. I’d estimate that they ranged in age from 13 to 16.

As I looked at them, the girl happened to glance over at me, and seeing my puzzled look, she laughed and turned away. The kids continued on their way, occupying the entire left-side of the road, while my fellow travelers ever so slowly continued to do what they had to do to avoid hitting the kids.

Yet another example of black privilege. And the girl with her arrogant laugh. More female privilege showing its ugly face. They do it all the time, these black people. So effing entitled! Always expecting us all to go around them. Knowing that we will.

And these women who all know that we men are terrified of how much power and privilege they have. If we so much as look at a woman the wrong way, she can go straight to our boss, or the press, or our friends, and our lives are ruined. She knew all that, that little black girl, as she laughed in my face, all while she was making me late for work. She knew that she had both kinds of the most powerful privilege in America today: Black and female privilege!

They all knew it, these black kids, that girl. They knew that they could freely impose a delay on a whole bunch of motorists, and that for some it might even mean that they might be late enough to work to lose their job.

They do it all the time, these blacks, and they do it to all of us. And why do they all do it, all the time? Because they know they can just get away with it. But, hey, they’re black… there’s nothing you can do about it. If you complain, then you’re a racist. If you don’t, you just let the bullies run all over you.

You can’t win in America, because the system is rigged for minorities and women, and they know it. They know it so well, that they just know they can walk right down the middle of the freakin’ street with no worries whatsoever that anyone will do a blessed thing about it. It’s in their bones, and in the buildings and trees of America.

Yep, the system is rigged against most Americans. There was another country where the small minority oppressed the majority of its citizens, and the rest of the world condemned it. The country was South Africa, and the system was “apartheid.” Once upon a time, as a nation, we all condemned it and finally consigned it to the dustbin of history.

Now, in America, we embrace apartheid, as privileged blacks, black supremacists and women lord it over everyone else, flaunting their haughty, arrogant disdain, as they display their privilege for all to see.

The parents of these black kids raised their children to know they have privilege, and they taught them how to use it. They taught them how to make sure that they do things so that others have to take note of their superiority and their supremacy. They taught their kids to rub their privilege in everyone else’s faces. They taught their kids to make sure that everyone knows about their supremacy. Like all black people, and all women, they’re not even aware of the privilege they have, of the way they lord it over white people, and men, of the way they wield their supremacy as if they’ve had it all their lives… which they have.

Or it was just three kinda spoiled, suburban kids responding to a bratty impulse, and acting like jerks, as if they were the only people in the world. You know, like … freakin’ kids do.

    1. Lol! BW: I see I’m going to have to educate you in this regard too. It’s no harder out there for straight white men than it is for anyone else.

      Where you go wrong, is you seem to think that the way to make things right in America is to oppress white people. This is the classic mistake of the victimhood-obsessed mentality. Their “solution” is not to raise themselves up, but to make everyone else as miserable as they are.

      The real solution to any problem is to improve the condition of all people.

      Just as you have no idea what racism is, or what anti-racism is, you obviously have no idea what the “alt-right” is all about, or else you’d recognize that I don’t even remotely resemble an “alt-rightist.”

      I’m not an economic nationalist, not even remotely a protectionist, and not even close to an isolationist. There is some racial nationalism in the fringes of the “alt-right,” but no real racism to speak of. However, I’m not a racial nationalist either. It should be noted that the racial nationalism of the “alt-right” is a fairly clear-eyed response to the racial vitriol coming from the Left, who insists that black people should hate all white people. The “alt-right” has responded by saying, in effect, why should we hang around with those who hate us? Why don’t we just go off by ourselves. I have no sympathy for this state of mind, because like yours, it’s wrong, and it shows a lack of understanding of this country.

      If you read what I, and my colleagues write, you’ll see that we’re rock-solid classical liberals. Society knows us as “Conservatives” today, because the Left has so corrupted the word “liberal.”

      We Conservatives are hard-core in favor of individual rights and responsibilities, we’re free-marketeers, and we oppose excessive government intrusion into the lives of its citizens.

      The alt-right is the leftmost-side of the right wing. Hence your confusion. The traits you condemn most loudly are (1) the traits you possess, and (2) characteristic of the Left. Hence, if you recognize such traits in the “alt-right,” it’s because you’re intimately familiar with them.

      Bottom Line: with your kinship to the Left, and its heavy-handed statism, you have much more in common with the alt-right than I do. They’re just not as racist as you are.

      Best,

      1. So, that’s what you’re going to latch onto, eh, the fact that I admitted that I’m a racist, and not wonder why and continue referencing me as a foot soldier to the RGI?

        1. Seriously, BW? You’re going to try that line of “reasoning?”

          Because of your question, do I now get to counsel you to try to “wonder why” there are the few white racists that there are?

          Are you really going to try to tell me that there are good reasons for someone to be a racist? That racism is okay for some people, but not for others? Seriously?

          Look, BW… is racism okay? Or is it wrong? If it’s wrong, then it’s always wrong, and there’s no “wondering why” someone is a racist. There’s only looking him in the eye and saying, “Cut it out. Now.”

          Racism is a set of beliefs that generalize on all members of a given racial group. Obviously, such beliefs require a person to try to make the claim that he knows all that is necessary to know about all people in a given group; such that he can conclude something — generally negative —
          about all members of that group. Such beliefs on the part of the racist are irrational and delusional.

          It’s not rational for someone to pretend that he can know all about all members of a race. It’s delusional for someone to imagine that he can read the minds of anyone, much less of all members of a given race. That’s what a racist is: an irrational, delusional person.

          There’s no wondering why someone’s irrational and delusional, there’s only pointing our the irrationality and the delusions, and telling the racist to cut it out.

          You, in your reply, tried to tempt me to find out “why you’re a racist.” Nope. I don’t care. If you’re irrational and delusional, then… cut it out. Now.

          One more quick thing. One would be perfectly justified in being wary of certain people who exhibit various racial, ethnic or other characteristics, if there were credible evidence that there’s an elevated chance of suffering harm at the hands of such people.

          Hence, there’s no problem with people being wary of, say, Muslims.

          A simple truth, that you’ve admitted yourself, is that there is something in Islam that inspires, incites, encourages, commands believers to slaughter non-believers.

          Until muslims work out what in their belief system is true and what is not, it would be profoundly stupid not to be wary of muslims. Furthermore, it would be immoral not to be wary of Muslims, since they represent a legitimate threat to other Americans… including your family.

          This is just the very same thing as what all people do when they avoid a “rough neighborhood.” No racism involved at all, but rather a common sense understanding that a risk to one’s safety is elevated in that neighborhood.

          Furthermore, religion isn’t the only thing that can be a legitimate reason to be wary of an entire group; ideology can be too. And I can tell you, BW, that you agree with me. Ready? You would agree with the following assertion: “It’s okay to be wary of people who call themselves ‘Nazis.'” Agreed?

          Likewise, if someone were to call himself a “Communist,” or a “Socialist,” you would be perfectly justified in backing slowly away, and hiding the women and children. Socialism, in all its various odious flavors, is the most deadly disease ever to have afflicted the human race.

          And, read this well, if there’s legitimate reason to believe that the members of a racial or ethnic group might cause harm to you or to your family, then it’s legitimate to be wary of them.

          You might think from this that I’m simply stating your argument back to you. Nope. I’ve proven many things to you, but two of them are (1) you have more to fear from other black people than from white people, and (2) there is very little anti-black racism in the hearts and minds of white Americans. In light of the massive evidence that I’ve presented to you, your racism is wrong; very wrong.

          You should rejoice that I’ve shown you that America embraces you, and overwhelmingly is rooting for your success and happiness. The vast, vast, vast majority of white people, along with me, are hoping that you live a long, healthy, happy, prosperous, and rich (they’re different) life. That should make you jump into the air, rejoicing in your good fortune, and ready to go out and take on the world.

          Best,

          1. And once again, your poor reading comprehension skills, need to tell people what to think, aversion from reality and never-ending denial is EXACTLY why I can’t talk to you.

          2. Your bottom line: it’s okay for you to be a racist, but not for someone else. Agree or disagree?

            And, serious question: Does whatever you have as a reason for being a racist make it okay for you to be a racist?

            If not, then quit with the excuses, and stop being a racist.

            Simple as that. Oh, and yes, it’s okay for me to tell people, and you, not to be racists. If that means I’m telling people how to think, then (1) so be it, and (2) you’re way more guilty of that than I am. 🙂

            Best,

            — x

          3. I don’t defend myself as having prejudices. I’m never proud of it. So I disagree, it’s not okay for me or anyone else to be racist.

            But at least I admitted it. And you didn’t even ask why. And even if I answered, knowing you, you won’t accept it, because you refuse to listen, but rather talk.

            So again, there’s no use in talking to you.

            By the way, before I forget, I looked up that claim you made about Africans owning white slaves. Turns out to be true. BUT your argument is still without depth.

            But you’re not really interested in that, are you? You’re just focused on the fact that I admit you’re right.

            As you can see, I can admit to my mistakes and flaws. What’s your excuse?

            I could learn from you, but your conduct prevented me to take you seriously, whether you were right, truthful or otherwise. No one, conservative or liberal, would tolerate your kind of behavior whenever you disagree, and you can’t be reasoned with with you deflect blame to everyone else but yourself. Your claim that I started this whole mess is an example of the denial you have. I didn’t know who you are or that your blog existed until YOU made that asinine comment in MY post. YOU made the decision to come to MY blog, and YOU made the decision to comment in MY blog. YOU also made the decision to behave poorly in your responses and YOU cannot take what YOU dish out in that regard. If you’re a true conservative, you would’ve accepted at least some of the responsibility. I have for this back-and-forth. In that regard, I’m more conservative than YOU.

            So, take your own advice and stop making excuses. If not, then you’ve shown that you can’t be talked to let alone listened to, and YOU have NO ONE to blame BUT YOU.

          4. Well, well, BW! There’s much right in your post, and much wrong. Needless to say, it necessitates a deep reply. So, here goes.

            My Reply:
            Seriously, what is the point of my asking why you’re a racist? There are only a few reasons, none of them any good, for having an irrational, delusional state of mind: Either (1) you’re crazy (which I don’t believe), or (2) you’re listening only to a bunch of other racists, or (3) you’re ignorant.

            Each of those reasons, if allowed to fester, leads to the other two.

            In your case, you’ve admitted numerous times to #2, because you’ve stated to me, again numerous times, that there are just bunches of arguments and people that you’re simply unwilling to listen to. That’s the same as saying that you’re aggressively fostering reason #3 — ignorance — in your own life.

            About your reason(s) for being a racist, if someone committed some injustice against you, or against a loved one of yours, then I’m really, really sorry to hear that. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. There’s no reason ever, ever, ever to wrong another person. That means it’s doubly incumbent on you not to compound the injustice, by committing injustices of your own! When, in your mind, or in your acts, you do to others what was done to you, or to a loved one of yours, you simply try to right one wrong with another wrong. That’s always a bad thing.

            It’s not that I don’t care what in your life has made you a racist, it’s just that I’m pretty sure you couldn’t give me a reason to think that it’s somehow okay for you to be a racist, while it’s not okay for someone else to be.

            Furthermore, you never asked me what it was that transformed me from a good, goose-stepping, race-baiting, left-wing half-wit into an anti-racist Conservative. And I don’t expect you to ask, because I don’t expect you to care. Don’t misinterpret that! It’s okay if you don’t care, because, bottom-line it’s not important. Again, what’s important are the ideas that my fellow writers and I have placed in these pages. And, the bottom line there is that the person who states the ideas is unimportant; the ideas themselves are what’s important.

            My Reply:
            Well, well! Good for you, BW! Which argument of mine is without depth? I’ve never presented to you any arguments that are untrue. All true arguments have, by definition, “depth.” The point behind adding to your knowledge of slavery was to show you that two perennial, foundational arguments of the RGI are simply… not true. RGI Argument #1: Slavery was about race. Nope. Slavery had nothing to do with race. In fact, it was an economicsystem, and a deeply flawed one at that. Slavery was, and remains, nothing more than Socialism with another name. RGI Argument #2: Black people around the world didn’t engage in slavery. Wrong. Black Africans are now the principal race involved in the slavery that remains in the world. However, don’t take offense at that. That’s only because the North Koreans haven’t yet taken over Africa. 🙂 The other point: there’s no race that’s blameless in its relations with any other. And, you can make the argument that black peoples around the world have mistreated white peoples more than the reverse. That being the case there’s no cause for racism in any direction, from any race, directed toward any other race, at any time, anywhere. Simple. If you assimilate that obvious truth, you can finally rest your conscience, which must be bugging the daylights out of you! 🙂

            Nope. I’m not interested in your admission that I’m right for myself… I’m interested in your admission that I’m right for you. I’ve been wrong plenty of times, but not so much with you. Right is right. True is true. It takes a big man to admit when he’s wrong. I’ve had to do it numerous times. It’s what brought me to Conservatism. And to real anti-racism. If you keep having moments where you allow truth, and evidence and… reality to infiltrate your thinking, you’ll be a Conservative as well. It’s never too late to embrace the only movement that considers black people to be real people… people in full: Conservatism. 🙂

            My Reply:
            Hogwash! If you were nice and polite with me, I was nice and polite with you. Period. And you know it. Note this reply here. You were — generally — nice and polite, and I’ve been nothing but nice and polite with you.

            You said: “No one, conservative or liberal, would tolerate your kind of behavior whenever you disagree, and you can’t be reasoned with with you deflect blame to everyone else but yourself.” Wrong. Only a liberal wouldn’t tolerate my behavior. Because I make mincemeat of their flimsy, flaccid arguments, so they get irritated, so they need to “ban me.” Like Abagond. Just another racist who couldn’t hack being shown to be wrong.

            You said: “Your claim that I started this whole mess is an example of the denial you have. I didn’t know who you are or that your blog existed until YOU made that asinine comment in MY post.” Again, nope. You made the asinine remarks, my colleague and I pointed out the vacuity and asininity of what you posted. There’s nothing wrong with that. What you posted was stupid, vapid, empty, ignorant, racist, moronic, half-witted and idiotic. In the face of something like that, to say that it was “not very good” or something like that, when it was really a racist stink-show, would have been both dishonest and cruel to you. You don’t tell a third-grader that he’s done MIT-level work. And you don’t offer pats on the back to someone who has posted something hateful, stupid and vile. You posted something hateful. stupid and vile, and I told you so. I did you a favor. You’re welcome.

            You said: “YOU made the decision to come to MY blog, and YOU made the decision to comment in MY blog.” Yep. Because you posted it out there for all the world to see. If you didn’t want all the world to see it, then you shouldn’t have posted it for everyone to see. BW: that’s how blogs work.

            You said: “YOU also made the decision to behave poorly in your responses…” Again, incorrect. I behaved according to the behaviors of others. If a person was nice and polite to me, I was unfailingly nice and polite to him or her. You know that.

            You said: “… and YOU cannot take what YOU dish out in that regard.” Wrong again. I simply “dish out” what I take. I always start an online interaction politely and truthfully.

            You said: “If you’re a true conservative, you would’ve accepted at least some of the responsibility.” Okay. This shows you understand some aspects of Conservatism! Good for you! Needless to say, I’ve accepted all the responsibility I need to take. You posted a snarky, racist post, and I replied in kind. No problem there. Your amen chorus had numerous opportunities to respond politely. None of them took advantage of those opportunities. I admit that I posed a challenge to them. None of them rose to the challenge. Some — like “diary” and “Herneith” were particularly stupid and racist. You, though, showed signs of being able to learn, to grow, to be better than you are. This last post of yours shows some of those same signs. I hope you’ll keep it up.

            You said: “I have for this back-and-forth. In that regard, I’m more conservative than YOU.” You have shown some growth here, BW. You’re not more Conservative than I am though. Not yet. It’s been my experience that converts to Conservatism tend to be super zealous. Truth to tell, I’d welcome you into the ranks of American Conservatives. You’d have to give up your racism; you’d have to embrace freedom, support a massive reduction in regulation, and in the level of government intervention in everyone’s life; you’d have to believe in the sanctity of all human life, and that all are equal before the law; you’d have to embrace character as the major determinant of a person’s quality; you’d have to understand that life may not be fair, but that we should expect people to be just, merciful and generous; you’d have to embrace being just, merciful and generous yourself.

          5. But of course. Anything that comes from the mouth, or in this case the keyboard, of someone you deem are liberal or who disagrees with you, it’s always them who are wrong. And even this statement is wrong. You sound like a hard core contrarian.

            I was never proud of the prejudices I have. So, stop trying to make it seem like I was or am. I know what I am, and what I’m doing. I don’t need anyone, especially you, to tell me what I’m doing or thinking to make him/herself look right or confirm their idea of me. That may piss you off that I said such and thing, and as usual, you’ll argue how that’s not true, because again, you want me to always be wrong and you right, it seems.

            And you want to talk about you being polite from the start, let me upload some of the over 269 comments you made in your name:

            You have to be kidding! I love it when I see all these people who can tell you ALL about someone based on the TINIEST bit of input.

            The actual truth? You have no IDEA under the sun whether she is a racist or not.

            In fact, I suspect YOU have a larger chance of being a racist than she does. Trust me I carry no water for Paula Deen…I don’t know her from Adam, and I have as much knowledge of her, probably, as you do.

            You and other wolf-crying paranoiacs need to take a DEEP breath! I’ll tell you a simple truth: There’s probably not a single person IN THE WORLD who could present ALL snippets of their lives to everyone and pass all tests. Yourself included.

            Based on your IMMEDIATE conviction of her, YOU’re probably (does exist… it’s just not that big a problem anymore.

            BW: I think you might be right. Apparently the condition of race relations in America is just not that important to you. I might be better off finding people who actually take race relations seriously enough to make the effort required to inform themselves, and to discuss it seriously.

            I stated an obvious fact: If you are going to accuse someone, or someones, of some very serious wrongdoing, then you had better have a bunch of clear, convincing facts ready at hand, or else you’re showing you don’t know what you’re talking about. And when you accuse someone or someones of serious wrongdoing, and you don’t know what you’re talking about, you’re doing a profoundly bad thing.

            You’re doing precisely what we condemned white people for doing so long ago! And, in a great triumph for human rights, we made them stop it. Now, who’s going to make us stop it? Or are we going to have the self-respect, the moral conscience, the common decency to stop it ourselves? I don’t have a lot of optimism in that regard.

            Furthermore, you might be right. It’s not very challenging or interesting to debate with people who don’t really know what they’re talking about.

            I know you’re getting ready to banish me again, and I guess I care a lot less than I used to.

            You might have finally done it, BW! With your strawmen, your inability, or unwillingness, to respond to facts, logic and reason, your racism, and your friends’ racism, you might actually have ridded yourself of me all without having to resort to cowardly banishment! I’ll have to consider whether it’s worth it to hang around in a den of racists and closed-minded people, who work hard to stay ignorant, and to avoid opposing viewpoints. I’ll let you know what conclusion I come to.

            Lol! Again, you fall into the trap of the RGI and the Left in general. You can’t read minds, Xena! No matter how much you want to think you can.

            I’ll tell you what ideology, or ideologies, I hold, okay? And, again, I’ll extend to you the very same courtesy.

            Your responses are weak tea indeed, Xena! Surely you can do better than questioning my character or my motives.

            Again, to state the obvious, if what most people here say is true, then it should be easy as pie to refute what I say without resorting to the desperate dodge of questioning my character and motives.

            You love to accuse people of reading your mind, even if and when they comment based on your responses and their tone. Some people may interpret that as looking into the minds of how someone thinks. So, if you don’t want people to read your mind, it’s best not to give them clues as to how you think. Just a suggestion.

            But let me guess. I’m wrong in that too, huh? Maybe I just read your mind there, and not the fact that that’s what you do on the regular.

            Anyway, here’s more:

            Wow! Now that was despicable! Low even for Mary’s generally dismal output!

            BW: I think it’s safe to say that this is one of those really stupid posts of which I spoke. And, really, there shouldn’t be any debate about it.

            I know that my editors and I would never allow this kind of repugnant filth on our blog. Not ever.

            You love to call disagreeable comments ‘stupid’, and not think how that in itself reveals your immature state of mind when it comes to disagreeing with others. But dash it all, I just tried to read you mind again. My bad.

            Anyway, back to your comments Oh, and I’m just choosing them at random from all the posts you commented on:

            BW: You do get to characterize an inanimate thing — a comment — without it being name-calling. It’s called “description.” I’d really hope I wouldn’t have to elaborate on that for you. Whereas “trucks” sole comment to me was to call me a name that is, obviously, incendiary, libelous and toxic. Honestly, BW, I’m not surprised that you took his side. Disappointed, but not surprised.

            “trucks’” comment was, and is, all the things that I said it was. It would be wrong and dishonest to describe it otherwise.

            “trucks” needs to have the courage of his convictions and come up with some counter-arguments with real substance to what I said.

            I made three clear points, and I gather that ztarztruck doesn’t have any counter arguments. But, like any true member of the Race Grievance Industry, he’s got the you’re-a-racist thing! Of course! It’s likely all he has! It’s the very first resort of the person who has no idea what he’s talking about.

            Here are my three clear points:

            1) American police are not killing black people wholesale. The Washington Post says so.

            2) The NFL is not in business to answer to the interests of black, white, brown, yellow or any other people. They’re in business to win football games, put backsides into stadium seats, and get eyes on their games from television coverage.

            3) There are, demonstrably, no more obstacles in the path of a black person’s chances for success in America, than there are in front of any other person’s.

            I suggest that “trucks” say something that counters these, I think, obvious realities. I won’t really hold my breath.

            Best,

            — x

            Lol! Just a few…

            I proved that America is not a racist nation. You then accused me over and over and over and over again of denying racism exists. I never did that. Not even once. However, I did prove that white racism has been defeated as a problem in America.

            Talk from experience all you want, America itself is not a racist nation — at least as you imagine it to be!

            Here’s how I proved it: I said to you a simple phrase: If a black person (1) gets an education, (2) speaks well, (3) works hard, (4) gets along with others well, and (5) presents him or herself more or less normally, there are no more obstacles in his path to success than in anyone else’s path.

            No one even tried to refute the statement. They all, and you, called me a racist (which is funny, since I’m black, but they, and you, never knew it until much later), or a liar, or they (and you) questioned my education, character and all the rest of the nitwit leftist litany.

            But the assertion — which I called my five points — if true, destroys the myth of white racism as a problem in America. No one even tried to offer any credible evidence to prove it wrong.

            The problem with your post is the basic premise itself. Dozens of times your echo chamber tried to tell me what I was thinking, what I was feeling, what I wanted, how educated I was. I called them, and you, on it every time. The point: I was not then about to tell you what you were thinking or feeling, etc. So, I never told you that you hate white people, though you are a racist. Go ahead, you square that circle. But, I still won’t presume to tell you what you think.

            The next point: The very last thing you ever have to worry about is someone telling you that “you hate white people.” The response should be very simple, and it goes as follows: “You can possible know what I think, know, like, love, hate, unless I tell you. So, here’s how it’ll work: I’ll tell you what I’m thinking, and then you can know. Got it?”

            The next point: Go ahead — debate me as to whether the best thing to happen to today’s Black Americans was the slavery of more than 150 years ago. If I were you, I wouldn’t bother, though, because you could never counter the following points:
            • Without your ancestors having sold your other ancestors into slavery, you would either be living in Africa now, or you wouldn’t exist.
            • Your ancestors’ very bad fortune was your good fortune. You get to live in the greatest country that’s ever existed. And to whine about it all you want, without a teentsy-weentsy bit of fear of repercussion from the authorities. Furthermore, it’s the best possible country in which to live if your non-white. Want proof? Okay:
            • There are literally tens of millions of non-white people from other countries begging, borrowing, striving desperately to come… here. I suspect they’re not coming here because they think the place is overloaded with racist sentiment against them. Oh, and:
            • You can’t point out to me one single, solitary, lonely law, rule, regulation, policy or procedure at the national, state or local level, that disfavors non-white people. Not one. Yet, I can point you to numerous such things that pointedly disfavor white people. Affirmative Action anyone? College admissions anyone? Corporate hiring practices anyone? Government hiring practices anyone? At all levels…

            If you’d like, I’ll dismantle your original post too. It won’t be difficult.

            Telling me what you know or think you know isn’t proof. Referring to only right wing sources shows bias the same way liberals only refer to left wing sources. There is such a thing called the independent middle. And there are unbiased sources. But I did it again, didn’t I. I’m wrong again, huh?

            These are the last ones. I promised:

            It’s completely cowardly to talk about me, and to lie about what I said, and then not allow me to defend myself. You should be ashamed of yourself.

            I’ll do my project with someone else. 🙂

            Can’t say I didn’t try with you.

            Best,

            Ahh yes! Your projects. You said you were did one with Abagond’s responses. How come I never heard of what you found out. How come I never heard any more about the one you mentioned? Could it be that it was a lie? THERE WAS NO PROJECT. In the first case, you just retreated, and I’m not sure why you said it again on my blog. Maybe trying to portray yourself as more important than you really are is a trait. Is it due to me having over 10 times more hits on my blog than yours? Is it because my blog has hundreds of more followers than you? Is this obsession with me blog envy?

            Just wondering.

            Here’s the last one:

            I know you’re too much of a chicken to post this, but I’d invite you to back up your implication that: slavery was not the best thing to happen to 21st Century Black Americans.(1)

            You don’t even have to say that I suggested it to you. Just go ahead and post an essay answering this question: “Would you, if you could, wave a magic wand and eliminate slavery altogether from American history?”

            If you have the courage actually to say something about this, don’t forget the obvious conclusion: if you existed at all, you’d be living somewhere in Africa.

            Go ahead. Try it. What I said should be easy to refute, if it’s so self-evidently untrue. Heck, it should be even easier, since you can say anything you want, but won’t allow me to defend myself. It should be noted that I never, ever, not even once, blocked you from defending yourself on my blog. Anyone can be the Big Man if he’s preventing those who disagree with him from even talking. Only the censors of the Left — whining about free speech the whole time — block free speech.

            And yet, you don’t want to be seen as a racist. Yet, you don’t mind saying things that actual racists or race deniers say. And speaking of denial…

            “Yep. Because you posted it out there for all the world to see. If you didn’t want all the world to see it, then you shouldn’t have posted it for everyone to see. BW: that’s how blogs work.”

            Of course, not accepting any responsibility for your part. You’re still in denial that you made the decision to come to my blog. Yes, I posted it in plain view, but you still made the decision to leave behind your comment. So, if anyone here is to blame is you. But I’m wrong in that regard too, eh? Poor xPraetorius just had to come and respond to my blog, because somehow I magically forced him to. Give me a break.

            “I’ve accepted all the responsibility”

            Denial, part two.

            “You’re not more Conservative than I am though. Not yet.”

            You’re right, because I accept and live in reality. Why don’t you do the same?

            Or have I been wrong in this whole response and it, in itself, is stupid, right?

            Here are a few more quotes for good measure:

            Yes, you banned me, to your great shame. The mere thought of being afraid to face counter arguments — in a blog! — is incredible to me! Of course, I’ve dealt with the left for decades and censorship and silencing opponents is their main tactic. It is, however, a fascistic tactic incompatible with basic human decency. To your credit, BW, you appear to have recognized that, and might be backing off from that disreputable way of running a public forum.

            When you say “there is no debate as to whether it’s [white racism] a serious problem or not,” you say that YOU get to decide what’s a serious problem, when it’s a serious problem, and why. Sorry. No one has that exclusive right. Can you imagine if the flat-earthers tried to shut up those who disagreed by saying, “There’s not debate, there’s no argument.” Oh, that’s right, they did. If they had succeeded, we’d still be teaching that the earth is flat in school. There’s ALWAYS room for debate. ALWAYS. Anytime you EVER hear anyone say that “there’s no debate,” that “the argument’s settled,” that the “science is settled,” or anything like that, alarm bells should go off in your head, and you should be figuring that someone’s just trying to squash disagreement. That almost always means that the one trying to silence opposition is incsecure in his beliefs. So, yes, there is PLENTY of debate as to whether or not white racism is a serious problem in America today, and I can give you names of those doing the very public debating.

            A lesson for life for you BW: Nothing is EVER settled. Everything is always changing. Tomorrow, EVERYTHING on earth will be different from how it is today. You need to be receptive to that change, and perceptive enough to recognize the trajectory of that change. Every time you say (and it’s been dozens of times!) “I’ll NEVER change my mind!” you make a fool of yourself. The wise man is ALWAYS ready to change his mind, ALWAYS open to new input, new knowledge, new learning, new wisdom.

            This is, of course, the typical behavior of the leftist. Deny it all you want, you ARE a leftist. You have all the childish, foot-stamping, whiny characteristics, and you do all the same deflections, with, of course, the final coup de grace: the blocking, all while pretending to be under attack and victimized. You just LOVE your victimhood, don’t you? Exquisite, isn;t it? Gives you a reason to get up and go out there and take down all those nasty-wasty racists, doesn;t it? ‘Course, that’s pretty easy, since they rarely fight back, and they’re USUALLY paying you to do it!

            Wow! You ARE completely wedded to your perceived victimhood, aren’t you?!?

            You REALLY WANT to be a slave! Know how I know that? Easy. I went through that phase too. Then I grew up.

            I’ll just tell you about you. You know what? You LOVE your “suffering!” It’s plain from your writing that you have defined yourself as “the great victim.” Without your victimization, you’d be bereft, so you cling to it like the security blanket that it’s become. It’s always been faithful to you because so few people ever challenge it, least of all you yourself. Furthermore, whites are afraid of hurting your feelings and blacks mostly agree with you. You surround yourself with those echo camber, blacks, you avoid the whites unless you absolutely have to deal with them, and you continue in your little closed system of a set of beliefs. Your sense of victimization is like a ratty, old, moth-eaten sweater…and you clutch it to yourself desperately, lashing out furiously at anyone who might suggest that you get a new one, more in line with the times. At the first hint of challenge to your ideas, you run to your little victims club echo chamber because, presumably, they’re all victims too. Victims of the Great White Machine. Doesn’t matter that the Machine is old and broken-down, and hasn’t worked in any meaningful way for 50 years, to you it’s still a menacing, growling, snarling, frothing beast, barely chained only by social mores and the phony good will of its white masters. Your vision is pinched, crabbed, stunted, stifling, stultifying, but it’s YOU…it’s what defines you and you WILL not change! Not for ANYONE or ANYTHING…especially not for the new reality that’s been in place for decades now. As the great Buss Lightyear once said, “You are a sad, strange, little man, and you have my sympathy.”

            Okay. I’m done. I’m sure you’ll respond to this, either here or in a post, or was I wrong in reading your predictable mind?

          6. BW: None of the replies you’ve cited were anything more than mild statements about posts or topics. Hardly anything that would upset anyone who wasn’t hyper-sensitive or immature.

            Somewhere in there, I did call you a chicken, and I apologize for that. However, you still have not un-banned us, which would be an important sign that you’re growing and maturing.

            Banning someone from expressing himself — shutting him up — is, fascistic, totalitarian, and cowardly. You can do only so many of such things before, well before you have to admit that you’re a fascist and a coward.

            Furthermore, when it’s shown to you that you’re doing fascistic, totalitarian, cowardly things, if you don’t stop doing them, then you have no call to tell people not to call you a fascist, totalitarian and coward. 🙂

            Now, I’m not calling you those things, but you still haven’t un-banned us at your blog. That’s still a totalitarian, fascistic thing to do. Are you going to stop? Or are you going to let that continue to stain your blog?

          7. You really don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m a blogger and this is a blog. This is not the government or a government mandated entity. This is a space on the internet moderated by a private citizen. As such, I have the RIGHT to ban ANYONE who I think is detrimental to the conversations to this blog, and you were highly detrimental whether you THINK so or not. You arguing that what I’m doing is totalitarian shows how entitled you THINK you are and how you avoid any responsibility on your part in why you were banned. At this point, any argument against even that is denial.

          8. Freedom of speech is not an excuse to say whatever and however you want, and it doesn’t apply to just you. Just like you have the right to say things that will likely anger people, I have the right to disagree, argue and even close off such voices.

          9. Freedom of speech is precisely the freedom to say whatever and however one wants. Duh!

            And, no, “freedom of speech” means that one does not, actually, “close off any voices.”

          10. Do you even know what the amendment says? In any case, I have that right too, and I also have the right to stop listening. You’re not entitled to say whatever and however you want without expecting consequences. If you’re into common sense, you would know that.

          11. First Amendment to the Constitution: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

            That would be the the Free Speech Amendment. I wasn’t talking about the First Amendment, I was talking about freedom of speech.

            You do have the right to shut off speech on your blog; you don’t then have the right to pretend you approve of freedom of speech. If you want to pretend to be all about free speech, you have to allow, ummmm… free speech. It’s kind of a given.

          13. Look… there are people who are, oh I don’t know, arachnophobic. It means that they have an irrational fear of spiders. The arachnophobia is a major issue for those people. However, spiders are not really a big problem for them, despite their irrational fear.

            Racism for black Americans is like arachnophobia for arachnophobics: an irrational fear of something that, if they were thinking clearly, they’d recognize is not really a big problem for them.

            The treatment for arachnophobia is not to pretend that the fear is reasonable and justified. Just as the cure for your racism, and that of the RGI, is not to pretend that it’s a reasonable, rational state of mind.

          18. They hate white people because of the color of their skins. They say racist things like, “All white people say…” or, “All white people do…” or, “All white people think…” or, “All white people are…” and so forth. I’ve been over all this many times before.

          20. So, what we said to you makes you think we hate white people because of what we said about you. Okay? What did we say to you exactly? Exact quotes please. And how is this as impactful as the the racism blacks have faced?

            I understand that you’re upset about the school shooting, who wouldn’t be? But, you do know that it was a Hispanic kid — one of the so-called “People of Color” who shot up that school, don’t you?

            A Hispanic kid kills a bunch of white kids (apparently — I read somewhere that most or all of the murder victims were white) and you make it a white problem?!?

            You’re just freakin’ weird!!!

          24. It was still reported that he had or has white supremacist ideals. So, it doesn’t matter what he is. It also doesn’t matter what race the kids were. They were still murdered. Both are reasons to be upset. Yet, you’re more fixated on race just as the alt-right has done, and you call me weird.

            Before you accuse me of the same thing, and even though you will prevent actually listening to what I’m really saying, my post was about the racism that the young man had, and not all of the victims were white.

            Racism IS white problem whether you believe it or not for the simple reason that THEY INVENTED RACE, and this teen must’ve obviously identified himself as white whether he actually was or not.

          25. Lol! White people did not invent “race.” Race is a part of everyone. Are you trying to tell me that white people invented “racism?” Or “awareness of race?”

            It was also reported, from established sources, that the killer had serious anti-white fantasies — like your friend “diary.” You can try to get into the head of a deranged madman all you want, but you’re not going to find anything there that you can apply to the rest of society. Again, this is obvious.

            Saying that white people invented race is like saying that white people invented “tallness.” Race is simply a characteristic that may or may not be useful in describing a person. It has no value by itself.

            I agree that racism is a white problem. A small one, and one that white people are working diligently to stamp out in their own midst. This is obvious, and I’ve proven it to you over and over again.

            However, racism is also a serious problem among black people (and among brown people as well, by the way), and it’s just as ugly, maybe even more so, because it’s socially acceptable.

            I called you weird because a “Person of Color” shoots a bunch of white people, and somehow you conclude that it’s white people’s fault. Blame the victim much, BW? What did you have against those poor schoolchildren?!?

            Since there’s really no such thing as “white supremacist ideals,” except in the fevered imaginations of the RGI, then the kid could not have had any.

            And, if you bristle at the term “fevered imaginations,” then I’d point you to your “F##k You…” rant in which a Hispanic kills a bunch of white people, and you blamed it all on… white people.

            That’s… weird. At best.

          26. Seriously, are you deliberately saying these things to get under my skin?

            Europeans invented the concept of race and with that created racism. And the murderer was proven to have had racist ideals.

          27. No one “invented the concept of race.” Just as no one invented the concept of “tallness.” It’s a characteristic. Duh! You can’t invent a concept. You might “define” it, or “discover” or coin the word that helps to describe it, but you can’t invent it.

            If the murderer had “racist ideals” then it was that he apparently hated white people, because he killed a bunch of ’em. the CNN site shows that 14 of the 17 were white.

            If the kid had “racist ideals,” whatever that means, it was that he hated white people.

          28. So race is real? Is that what you’re saying?

            Also, just because he had racist ideals, which is a thing, doesn’t mean that it should be rejected from this. It’s not as simple as you would like it to be.

          29. Lol! No one ever said that race isn’t real, BW!

            Seriously, what are you fabricating here? You’re plainly trying to filibuster — you’ve been doing that for a while — but that’s okay, because it fits my purposes.

            Where did you get the odd idea that someone’s suggesting that race isn’t “real?” It’s like tallness… a characteristic that all people possess. So, yes, all characteristics that people possess are “real.”

            Best,

          30. Race is real. Tallness is real. Intelligence is real. Wisdom is real. All just names for characteristics — some more abstract than others — that people possess.

          31. None of my words are needless. My point is to help you to understand things by being able to come at them from many different directions. This allows you to see things from different perspectives, which is something that you generally don’t do.

            Best,

            — x

          32. What makes you think I need or want your understanding when you refuse to understand mine over and over again? And what makes you think I don’t see things from different perspectives? Again, you’re just projecting and assuming.

          33. And yet, I understand your positions.

            Youdo see things from a different perspective. Being wrong is different from being right. 🙂

            Since I’m the only one in our interactions to have advanced any substantive arguments in all our interactions, then I’m the one with the better chance of being right.

            Dude, if what you’re saying, what you believe is important to you, then you should have a whole host of substantive arguments, thought exercises, logic trails, rock-solid statistics, supporting statistics for the first statistics, and a lot more to support your positions.

            Without such things, you have no choice but to appear unserious… as you do.

            If you’re unserious, then you shouldn’t be debating with people who are serious.

            More to the point, you shouldn’t be posting the superficial slop that you do.

          34. I’m a blogger, not a debater, and even so, that’s still no excuse to discount anything I’ve said. You wanted responses and explanations. I gave them to you. You wanted proof and evidence. I gave them to you. I did it out of good faith whether you think so or not. Clearly nothing I said was enough for any hint of consideration. And it’s not because I was wrong. It’s because you’re being ridiculous.

          35. Correct.

            I was banned because I was shellacking a bunch of racists who had no idea what they were talking about, and didn’t like the view from the business end of the mop I was using them for.

            Those are not valid reasons to squelch free speech. 🙂

          36. Yep. They were all unable to have their thinking challenged. It’s a common chasracteristic of the Left. It’s the rare leftist who’s not that way.

            Don’t forget, BW, everyone just knew — knew! — that the earth was flat too. Just because everyone thinks a certain way, doesn’t mean they’re right.

            Best,

          37. Your need to politicize this is astounding, and your avoidance to understand the simple explanation that it wasn’t your thinking or just your thinking that you got you expelled. You sound like a guy who would insult another guy, he punches you and you blame him while not taking any accountability for why he punched you.

          38. Nope. You exhibited — and exhibit — all the characteristics of the Left. Shutting down dissenting views is the signature tactic of the Left.

            I’ve never known of a Conservative web site to ban anyone. I’m sure it’s happened, but it’s just not in our nature to shut people up, or shut them down. That’s what the Left does. You’re — obviously — of the Left, so you do it too.

            The Left is composed of herd animals. I could, probably, tell you a great deal about you on other issues.

            Heck, let’s take a stab at it:
            • I already know you’re a big sexual weirdism rights guy.
            • I already know you’ve already surrendered to the feminist weirdos. 🙂
            • I know you’re a supporter of gay rights.

            All very left-wing positions…

            Let me guess the rest:
            • You’d support higher taxes on the rich.
            • You’re pro-death (some use the weasel term: “pro-choice”)
            • When slaughtering old people — aka “death with dignity” — becomes a thing, you’ll support whichever side (slaughtering old people) the Democrat Party supports.
            • You support increased domestic spending. ie for “Education” and “Infrastructure,” and “Social Programs”
            • You support decreased defense spending.
            • You support some kind of reparations for black Americans.
            • You think Donald Trump is a racist.
            • You think that the Conservative movement has a strong racist element. Strong enough to label Conservatives “racists” in general.
            • You think the Tea Party is a racist movement.
            • You support Planned Parenthood.
            • You support “gun control.”
            • You think that “income inequality’ is a serious problem in America.
            • You’d support mandatory caps to CEO pay.
            • You’re in favor of urgent government action to combat “climate change.”
            • If someone were to call you an “Environmentalist,” you’d agree with the title.

            All very left-wing thinking.

            I already know that you support the suppression of free speech, since you engage in it yourself. That’s the quintessential Leftist characteristic, in plain view on college campuses all across the country.

            How’d I do? I’m betting that I got 100%. 🙂

          39. That’s your opinion that I’m of the left. YOUR opinion. And if I support feminism, gay rights, civil rights and human rights in general, so what? How is that a problem for you? How is what I think such a major problem for you?

            And if I was against free speech as you love to assume, again, so what? Why is that a problem for you as an individual?

          40. Lol! Now, THERE are some good questions! Finally! They require a complete answer, and I need to bring my son to the Dr.’s office now .I’ll respond in greater detail when I return.

          41. Oh, by the way, just in case you want to play the responsibility game. I take some in this rigmarole, and I admit that I’m wrong in some points but right in a lot of them. I also take responsibility in cursing you out a few times when you’ve pushed me to the breaking point of tolerance. And I hold myself accountable for using my right to block you from commenting in my blog.

            There. I admit my role in this. Just wanted to mention that,.

          42. Okay. Another gracious post! Much appreciated! Just a couple of quick remarks…

            One thing about the “cursing me out” part. We’re online. We have time to step back, take deep breaths and modulate or moderate our responses.

            I’m going to tell you a story — not about how I became a Conservative, but how I became a very, very calm person.

            As you might recall, I’m a former professional baseball player. I was one of the very first pitchers whose slants were clocked at 100mph or more. I’ve always been very big, and massively strong.

            One day, when I was much, much younger, I had an over-the-top argument with my older brother. We were in our childhood home living room. In a moment of fury, I grabbed one of those silver Master locks that everyone used to lock up sheds and things, and I blindly hurled it at my brother.

            To my credit, I wasn’t trying to hurt him, because I missed him by five feet. He was fifteen feet away from me; if I’d wanted to hit him, I could have.

            The lock smashed through one pane of window glass, through a second pane of glass, and through a screen. It finally lodged in a tree about 15-20 feet away from the house.

            It was, of course, a fluke. Somehow the rounded part of the lock had found a crack in the trunk of the tree and stuck there, but neither my brother nor I knew it at the time. It simply looked as though I’d thrown a lock so hard that it had smashed through two panes of glass and lodged in a tree some 30-35 feet away.

            My face went white, as did my brother’s and I fell all over myself apologizing to him.

            Internally, though, I vowed to get completely rid of any temper I had. And I did.

            When I tell you that it’s impossible for you to upset me, I mean it. Anything I write, anything I do, anything I say, is intended tactically.

            If I write forcefully, it’s because I believe that the situation calls for forceful writing; if I write with what seems like temper, it’s because I believe that’s the tone called for at the time. That’s all.

            Bottom line: it’s easy for me now to respond to you in exactly the tone I believe will be most effective. I don’t always get it right, of course, because, like you, I’m trying to read your mood, your personality, your reactions… your mind. I don’t, however, pretend that I can; only that I certainly try to.

            You should be able to do that too. It’s never too early to start curbing your temper, and it’s always a good thing to do, because a temper gets in the way of seeing things — like truth, reality, facts, etc — clearly. I gather that you want to see things clearly, right?

            Strategically speaking, a temper also gives your debate opponents — like me — easy ammunition. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to do that! 🙂

            That, by the way, is one of the principal reasons I advised you to curb many of your blog “friends” like Herneith, Mary, Diary, etc. They don’t do you any favors, and they do provide people like me with plenty of fodder with which to chide you.

            In fairness to me, Diary’s fantasy that all white people die in a “solar assassinationis truly outrageous, and you absolutely should vigorously disavow the comment. I certainly would, and I’d never, ever, ever, not in a million years, allow something horrible like that to go unchallenged, or undenounced on my blog.

            I did come to your blog to learn. Not to “win.” I win all the time. It’s easy, because most people on the internet don’t have even close to the level of knowledge that I have. What they do have is their understanding of things in the country.

            By the way, you and your friends revealed that in the very first posts of our interaction, when everyone unanimously, began shouting, “Racist!” and, “Liar!” and, “Psycho!” and all the rest.

            There were all manner of legitimate ways to say that they didn’t want to talk about it with me, but your blog friends wanted not only to avoid debating with me, but also to shut me up, shut me down, humiliate me and do the usual: stomp on some white guy who dared to disagree with black people about race relations in America. At that point, they were well in my trap. As you can see, it wasn’t difficult to show them the error of their ways.

            Bottom line, BW… now that you’ve admitted that it’s wrong to ban me from your site, I welcome your un-banning my colleagues and me.

            I’d also respectfully request, again, that you publicly disavow Diary’s toxic comment. It’s still hanging out there suggesting that both you and Diary fantasize regularly that all white people would die violent deaths.

            Best,

            — x

          43. Once again, through your needlessly extensive response, you’ve proven why I can’t talk to you about racism, and if you’re going to keep hanging Diary’s comment over my head, so be it. Go ahead if her fantasies prove your fantasies while remaining in pathological denial and emotionally disconnected usually to protect your “worldview” and precious feelings, because in the end, you’re part of the problem.

          44. Lol!

            Really, BW? Your friend Diary actually fantasizes about the violent death of everyone in the world who looks like me, and you agree with her, and somehow I’m part of the problem?!?

            And you say you can’t talk to me?!?

            Serious question: If you don’t agree with Diary’s grotesque fantasy, why do you have any problem at all disavowing it? I’d have no problem whatsoever immediately disavowing those sentiments if they were to appear on my blog. Along with a warning to the commenter to keep that kind of cr*p out of my blog, where it would not be welcome.

            So again, serious question: If you don’t agree with Diary’s grotesque fantasy, why do you have any problem at all disavowing it?

            Seriously?

            Best,

            — x

          45. This coming from a person who denies that the right is loaded with racism, that Donald Trump isn’t racist, that America doesn’t have a problem with racism???

            I don’t agree with what Diary said. I thought I told you once. If not, let me say it in caps so it would be impossible for even you to miss. I DO NOT AGREE WITH DIARY’S STATEMENT, NOR DO I ENDORSE ANY FORM OF GENOCIDE AGAINST A PEOPLE.

            Still, you want to continue to bring it up over and over again. Yet, you want to avoid any and all racism coming from your political base and claim how they’re not racist? You don’t see how that makes you look like a hypocrite, not to mention just plain ignorant?

            Of course not. You don’t want to. That’s why nothing gets to you, because you don’t want to face them.

          46. Well, well! I don’t recall ever seeing your rejection of Diary’s genocidal fantasy! If I did, and I missed it, then I sincerely apologize.

            I would remind you gently, that you did endorse it at the moment when she said it.

            You did say something like, “they’ll probably blame it (our being wiped out by solar assassination) on people of color,” or something like that. I can look it up for you.

            As for the right being racists. I’ve said it many, many times: there are racists on the Right… just a lot fewer than on the Left. And, of course, a lot fewer than in the RGI.

            I think I’ve proved it to you also. And, yes, I do want to face up to the racists on the Right, and to tell them to cut it out, and grow up, and grow a brain and a heart. But, I’ll be speaking to a few dozen people, when there are millions of racists on the Left, and in the RGI.

            Again, there’s no point, in my humble opinion, in addressing small problems — like right-wing racism — when there are really big problems like left-wing racism, and RGI racism.

            Racism is like a forest fire. You don’t put it out by concentrating on the places where it’s already mostly out.

            As for the Diary comment… I’d personally appreciate it if you’d publicly post your rejection of her fantasy in your blog.

            If you were to do that, I’d publicly acknowledge the courage required on your part to do that!

            If you were to do that, I’d publicly acknowledge the courage required on your part to do that!

            Seriously?

            Actually, I was, and I will, but not because you want me to. Whether you believe that or not, is up to you.

            And yes, I did respond to that in almost the exact same words.

            So again, I will not and do not endorse white genocide, but you need to LET IT GO!!!

            Lastly, I highly appreciate you not telling me what to do on my own blog. I’m not your negro. Yes, I take requests, but I reserve the right whether or not they’re to be granted based on my judgment. Why? Because again, it’s MY BLOG.

            I would say more, but we both know that you really don’t care to hear from a point of view you’re uncomfortable with, whether you admit it or otherwise.

          48. Lol! Nice rant, BW! As you know, I’ve never told you what to think, so no more strawmen, please.

            Until you do reject Diary’s comment, you are on record, and you have been on record for almost four years, as endorsing it. You said something to the effect of “blaming it on Hispanics, blacks and Jews,” or the like.
            You said: “Actually, I was, and I will, but not because you want me to. Whether you believe that or not, is up to you.”

            BW: You’ve had nearly four years! What are you waiting for?!?

            ‘Nuff said (for the moment at least)

          49. If you aren’t into telling me what to think, why do you constantly repeat the same statements over and over again as if you using subliminal programming?

            And it wasn’t that long that she made that comment, and you’re completely blind, stupid or crazy if you’re going to discount centuries of white racism against blacks if you can’t even begin to comprehend how she feels whether what she said was wrong or not.

            It was, by the way, but why should I listen to someone who wouldn’t condemn the police killings of unarmed blacks, the Charleston Church Massacre and any and all race-based murders?

            You want me to denounce a statement on white genocide, lead by example and denounce actual murders of blacks by whites. Otherwise, please have a seat.

          50. You said:
            If you aren’t into telling me what to think, why do you constantly repeat the same statements over and over again as if you using subliminal programming?

            My reply:
            I repeat things simply because you seem to fail to assimilate things. Yeah, BW, I’m trying to re-program you with subliminal messages hidden in my written text. Oooooookay… (backing slowly away from the crazy man 🙂 )

            My reply:
            Soooo… you don’t think it was that long ago that she made that comment? It was on March 23, 2014. Here’s the link: https://brothawolf.wordpress.com/2014/03/23/the-white-man-march-pffft/

            BW: Don’t you know how to use Google? Here’s the search: “solar assassination site:https//brothawolf.wordpress.com”

            On March 23 of this year, You will have allowed Diary’s lunatic fantasy to remain unchallenged on your blog for four long years. Pretty ugly anniversary. I’d be ashamed to allow that to happen on any blog I might control!

            Just reading the news of the day, BW. Paula Deen admitted to having used the “n”-word some 25 years ago (now almost 30 years ago) and she lost everything. And you were very happy to see it happen.

            Your next sentence was nonsensical. You’re making thing up. You’re flailing. Badly. Where do you get the strange idea that I didn’t condemn the Charleston Church massacre? Where do you get the idea that I don’t condemn police killings of unarmed blacks? All unwarranted killings of anyone by anyone are wrong, evil, bad, disgusting, vile things. Period. That has always been the position of this blog. Duh! Again, stop making things up.

            You said:

            My reply:
            You just keep loading up my weapons for me, don’t you?

            It’s almost unfair to have to respond to this one. I should allow you to take it back, but I’m not going to. Maybe this will give you the impetus to THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU WRITE ONCE IN A WHILE!!! 🙂

            So, here goes: Dude, if your publicly-expressed feelings regarding fantasies about the violent deaths of more than a billion people who look like me are dependent on how I act, or what I say, or what I do, then you do need to check yourself. You just might be a deeply bad person.

            Look, there are horrible black people out there. Some of them, yourself included, have treated me horribly. It’s never, ever, not even once even remotely crossed my mind that I might wish for the deaths of all black people. Not even once.

            Islam has actual commands in its “holy” book to kill Christians like me, but I’ve never, ever, not even once, experienced a fantasy in which I wished that all muslims would die a violent death. Not even once.

            I have my own beliefs, BW. I have actual core values that aren’t dependent on the behavior or beliefs or actions of others. You should try to find out who you actually are, BW.

            Diary’s fantasy is a disgusting, ugly thing, BW. You endorsed it. Do you continue to hold that position or not? If you do, then you’re an ugly, vile person, and you need to do some serious, comprehensive examination of your own conscience… for a very long time. If you don’t hold Diary’s belief, then, read this well, you’ve publicly endorsed a fantasy that all people who look like me die a violent death. Your last official statement on your official web site is an endorsement of the fantasy that all people who look like me die a violent death. That statement has remained unchallenged on your official web site for almost four years. You should do something about that.

            It’s looking more and more as if, with racists like you and would-be genocidal maniacs like Diary out there, people like me have “taken a seat” for far too long.

          51. 1. I don’t want to assimilate, especially to your side, and your unwillingness to accept that is a contradiction to your stance on individualism.

            2. Four years isn’t that long ago. And again, if you can’t respect me to run my blog the way I want to, then you must really think I am your negro. If you don’t, then please drop this. It’s not that hard.

            3. I don’t see one iota of you condemning anything that has happened to black people. And if you think the Paula Deen situation happened a long time ago, you’re misinformed.

            4. Grow up and stop crying about what I do or don’t do on my blog. You’re really sounding like a total snowflake who’s melting right now.

          52. 1. I’m not asking you to assimilate to “my side.” You need to assimilate to common decency. I see you’re unwilling to do that. Your loss. You keep giving me ammunition.

            2. It’s four years longer than I’d ever allow myself to be associated with such garbage. If you want that filth on your conscience, it’s no skin off my hide.

            3. Then you haven’t been reading.

            4. Grow up and realize that you have allowed yourself to endorse the lunatic, genocidal fantasies of a hard-core racist. That makes you a… hard-core racist. By the way, I don’t mind if you don’t condemn the racists… all you do is confirm everything we’ve been saying here for a long time.

            Again, neither you, nor your commenters — none of you — ever condemned Diary’s fantasy. I’ve been using that to point out the racism of the RGI for a long time now. I guess I get to keep on using it.

          53. 1. Why don’t you lead by example, especially online? If you want others to be descent, be descent yourself.

            2. And yet, you keep bringing it up. If you won’t want to be associate with it, let it go.

            3. I’ve been reading.

            4. If you don’t mind, then stop bringing it up. By doing otherwise, you’re showing that won’t let it go.

            Bottom line, stop bringing up the comment if you hate it so much, and stop telling me what to do on my blog.

          54. 1. The word is “decent.” We’re always decent, if you’re decent to us. Always.

            2. Nope. You need to figure out who you are. Remember how you bristle when you pretend that I’m telling you what to think? Why would you then tell me what to think? Silly boy!

            3. Okay. Ummmm… I’d advise you to keep it up.

            4. Now you’re telling me what to do? After being so defensive about my supposedly telling you what to do? You are a hypocrite! As well as a reactionary racist. 🙂

            3. I will.

            4. Every action will generate an equal but opposite reaction. If you don’t want me to tell you what to do, stop telling me what to do.

          56. 1. Huh? Your reply makes no sense.

            2. Nope. You’re plainly confused. One can’t be a racist and anti-racism at the same time. As I mentioned, you need to figure out who you are.

            3. Okay.

            4. I never tell you what to do. I merely offer commonsensical advice.

          57. Lol! There you go again, getting all worked up about how I say what I say.

            You know, BW, I’ve never allowed what someone said to offend me, let alone how they said it! That might just be commonsensical advice too! In fact, it is. 🙂

          58. Actually, I’m quite calm. All I was saying was something you should’ve been taught already, and that’s watch what you say and how you say it.

            If you didn’t allow what someone said to affect you, you shouldn’t have made the first comment in my blog in the first place. You should’ve just kept moving, but you didn’t, because what was written was enough to make you invade my blog.

          59. See? Replies that make no sense.

            Did you mean to write “I’ve yet to see…”?

            See what I mean about proofreading, BW? Your post was seven freakin’ words, and it still made no sense!

            Are you drinking, BW?

          60. Lol! How funny is that?!?

            Did you even read how your commenters treated me?!? And with not a single, solitary word from you.

            You’re full of hogwash, BW. You don’t care in the slightest whether anyone’s rude, or inconsiderate, or thoughtless, or cruel, as long as he’s agreeing with you!

            But, then let someone disagree with you, and he has to be all good and proper, and sweet and nice, and mild.

            Do you have any beliefs that you, you know… believe?

          61. If you really read what they said to me (and to my friend, and to my friends) and you don’t like condescension, then, you’d have had to ban all your commenters.

            Again, they spent all their time dumping on me, and if condescension were currency, I’d have been wealthy! 🙂

          62. What friends? Where are they? I don’t see them here or in your last several blog posts.

            Those people were you. They always have been. Drop the act already. You’re only fooling yourself now. Your friends never came to offend you after I banned you. That’s because they were all you. Plain and simple.

          63. Nope. And I explained how you were wrong.

            I’d forgotten about this particular aspect of your bobbing and weaving. You owe my friends and me an apology, and I hope it will be forthcoming soon.

            Best,

            — x

          64. No, you give me nothing. You owe me several apologies.

            However, don’t get me wrong. You should apologize for your own benefit.

            You have a lot of corrosive things going on in your life, BW, not the least of which is the Diary grotesquery. I don’t want to leave out the apologies you owe to my friends and me. You should get that done as soon as you can. You’re not getting any younger, BW.

            Best,

            — x

          65. I guess that could be correct.

            It’d be better stated as follows: “You owe it to yourself to apologize to my friends and me.

            Thanks for helping me make that clearer.

            Best,

          66. Doesn’t change the fact that you owe my friends and me an apology for your libel of them and me. You should do it for yourself. Holding onto a lie corrodes your soul. You should do it for yourself.

          67. Oh, and I won’t let it go. As I said before… I’d never allow a bunch of horrific crap like that to remain on our web site for even a minute — much less nearly four years!

            You need to (1) reject Diary’s genocidal fantasy, (2) call out Diary for her racism and her Naziism, (3) admit that not all white people are racists, (4) admit that only a tiny minority of white people are racists, (5) admit that black people can be, and are, racists, (6) admit that there are more black racists than there are white racists, (7) admit that the USA is the least racist country on the planet, and (8) admit that I’ve been right all along.

            Just kidding. While #’s one through eight are indeed correct, I’ll settle for your public rejection of Diary’s genocidal fantasy.

            Best,

            — x

          68. I’m not sure whether you’re lying or not. I take everything you say with a grain of salt. So, while I think you really want me to cave in to you and reject Diary’s comment, I think you’re also cracking, because you have no new lines to say. At this point, you’ve become a broken record pleading for me to admit that you’re right.

            For the record, I NEVER said that all whites are racists. It’s another proof that you want to think what you think.

          69. Your commenters have said that all whites are racists. That they’re racists because they’re white. You’ve never publicly — that I’ve seen — disagreed with them.

            Best,

            — x

          70. Lol! Suit yourself.

            Let me remind you that I’VE NEVER TOLD YOU HOW TO RUN YOUR BLOG.

            I’ve given you some commonsensical advice. One point: I’d never, ever, not ever in a million years, allow an ugly thing like Diary’s psychotic fantasy to stay on my blog for four seconds, much less four years. 🙂

            That shouldn’t be controversial.

            Best,

            — x

          71. You’re always telling me to condemn a comment by one person, and you won’t let go of one comment. Besides, you don’t say anything about any hate group making racist, sexist, homophobic, any hate-based comment that also promotes violence against certain groups. So, why should I listen to you when you’re pretty much silent about that??

          72. Okay… so what you deem is my state of mind dictates what you think?!?

            Oh, that’s right, we’ve been through this.

            The point: You’re still officially in agreement with a fantasy that all people who look like me would die a violent death. If you weren’t, then that post would disappear from your web site, along with a sincere apology for allowing it to see the light of day in the first place. Again, you don’t need to do that for me, but for you. 🙂

            Oh, you’ve said you don’t agree, but you said it here, in my web site. Not quite official, BW. Not like my obviously official, very public, denunciations of white racism. Just sayin’…

            Now, I’ll let it go with you, but I surely intend to use it in future posts. After all, it’s potent ammunition.

            Remember:
            (1) Diary fantasized that all people who look like me would die a violent death, then…
            (2) You endorsed the grotesque fantasy moments after it was posted, then…
            (3) None of the commenters sympathetic to your point-of-view denounced the grotesque fantasy, then…
            (4) We pointed out the grotesque fantasy to you and gave you an opportunity to denounce the grotesque fantasy, then…
            (5) Periodically over four years, we gave you more opportunities — numerous opportunities — to denounce the grotesque fantasy, then…
            (6) You said you would denounce the grotesque fantasy, then…
            (7) You said you would not denounce the grotesque fantasy, leading to the conclusion that…

            • Diary has a fantasy about the violent death of all people on earth who look like me, and • you harbor that same fantasy, and • so do your commenter friends, and • even when presented with opportunity after opportunity to denounce a blatantly disgusting notion, you wouldn’t denounce it.

            Ooooookay… (backing slowly away from the crazy man…)

          73. Lol! BW, I’ll never be able to cover all the incidents you want me to cover. I did, however, unambiguously condemn all acts of racism by white people — in this very thread! — a condemnation that you instantly rejected. I have no doubt that no matter what I do or say, you’ll immediately move the goalposts yet again. So, suffice it to say, I’ve way more than done all that you’re whining about, but I know you’ll be ready to say something nonsensical about not having said it specifically or something.

            And, no, I’m not letting it go. The racism of you people in the RGI is fertile ground for blogging! 🙂

            And, of course, you and your friends are regular, fruitful contributors to our oeuvre. I’m grateful, I really am, but I admit that I’m frustrated at your seeming unwillingness to learn anything.

            I won’t let it go either, because it’s really a perfect example of everything I’ve been talking about. You see, you have had every opportunity to reject the mad fantasy, and you’ve made every possible excuse under the sun to avoid doing the decent thing. That says a lot about you. It indicates that your racism is just easy, breezy… part of your make-up at a very deep level. Likely a disease that you’ve had all your life. Likely something your parents gave you, and all your friends and other family members. So much a part of you that to become a good person would be a terrible wrench for you. Okay. I get it. Still, you should try, and you should experience some time as a good person. You might like it.

            Best,

            — x

          74. You haven’t condemned them in any of your blog posts. And what do you mean “you people”?

            You are in no position to accuse me of not learning anything. No position whatsoever.

          75. “You people” — You members of the Race Grievance Industry.

            Here’s the direct quote from me: “I CONDEMN ALL HOSTILITY DIRECTED BY WHITE PEOPLE TOWARD BLACK PEOPLE ON THE BASIS OF THEIR SKIN COLOR!”

            Another one. Same post: “I CONDEMN UNEQUIVOCALLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY ALL WHITE RACISM DIRECTED TOWARD BLACK PEOPLE, IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES AT ALL TIMES, IN ALL PLACES.”

            Still another one. Same post again: “WE SUPPORT UNAMBIGUOUSLY THE EFFORTS OF ALL BLACK PEOPLE WHO ARGUE AGAINST WHITE RACISM.”

            No wiggle room there.

            What did I say about moving the goalposts?

          76. Let’s see, are you also trying to tell me that when Diary fantasizes about the violent death of all white people, that’s not “anti-white?”

            Best,

            — x

          77. Lol! Now you need to tell that to all your commenters. Let me remind you that you’re on my blog, where your talk is cheap. 🙂

            I am, however, glad that you’ve indicated that you don’t hate all white people (just me? 🙂 ).

            P.S. Would it make you feel better to tell me why you’re such a racist? If so, please feel free to go ahead…

          78. I don’t hate you. That’s what you think, and what you think isn’t always true.

            Also, I corrected myself. I’m more prejudice than racist. There’s a difference.

          79. Lol! I know you don’t hate me. You wouldn’t spend this much time with me if you hated me. It’s nice, though, to hear you confess these weaknesses, BW! They’re signs of growth.

            Prejudice is a component of racism. But, of course, not the only component of racism.

            Are you now saying that you’re not a racist? Seriously, BW, who and what are you?!?

            You are, indeed, lucky I came along! Plainly no one’s ever made you think about who you are!

            Best,

          80. I have no problems whatsoever confessing my weaknesses. However, it would take far longer than a simple reply to a blog post. You tend to get irritated with me when I post long blog posts.

            A full confession of my weaknesses would make for a LOOOOOONG blog post!

            Would you just “let it go” if someone on our blog fantasized about the violent death of all black people? Seriously? Of course not. And I wouldn’t expect you to.

          82. Lol! Good try, BW!

            Don’t forget, you’re the one with the assertion that you’re okay with the violent death of all people who look like me hanging over your head. If I had something grotesque like that hanging over my head, I’d want to divest myself of it but pronto!

          84. Likely because my assessment is correct, while yours is not. 🙂

            You consider me a racist. I’m not. I consider you a leftist. You are.

            My assessment is, therefore, more correct than yours, because my assessment is correct, while yours is not. 🙂

            Best,

            — x

          86. Again, was I wrong in any of my particulars?

            Your failure to answer that question indicates that I was on the nose. The Left is so predictable! 🙂

            Best,

            — x

          87. Your fixation on hating the left is phenomenal. Yes, I am pro-choice. Yes, I support gay marriage and yes, I believe in stricter gun laws. So, if you want to call me a leftist to satisfy yourself, you can. But what I don’t understand is why does it bother you what I am?

          88. I don’t hate the American Left. Again, stop pretending you know what I feel or think.

            I report on the Left. They’re the single greatest threat to the single greatest country that’s ever existed, so they fascinate me. They’re a generally odious group, but I don’t hate them at all.

            I hate the leaders of, say, ISIS — and I admit that goes contrary to my Christian beliefs, and I’m trying to overcome that — but I have no hatred whatsoever for the Left.

            It doesn’t bother me at all what you are. However, you constantly say a bunch of patently stupid or incorrect things, or — amazingly — things you couldn’t possibly know… I correct you. That’s all.

            Again, there are many dangers to this country — the greatest country that’s ever existed — and one of the principal ones is the ignorance of the Left, and of groups like the RGI.

            If a stupid or false public statement by a representative of some wacky group is out there, and it goes uncorrected, it might influence other impressionable minds. It’s the duty of all sober-minded Americans to correct imbecility such as what the Left and the RGI put out there all the time.

            By the way, the imbecility happens because of only one thing: laziness.

            The Left is solidly enmired in Stage 1 thinking, and they’re generally too lazy or insecure to do the hard intellectual work to refine their thinking to get to Stage 2, which is also inadequate.

            Some leftists get to Stage 2, but are then too lazy to go on to Stage 3. Furthermore, they figure that since they’ve advanced on beyond Stage 1, they don’t have to advance further.

            One’s thinking needs to be at least at Stage 6 before it has a decent chance of being something accurate, or worthy of proposing as a policy solution for a problem.

            You’re a complete Stage 1 dude, BW — I’ve never heard you advance any argument higher than Stage 1 — and I always argue with you from about a Stage 3 perspective. You likely wouldn’t understand Stage 6 material, and would say that I’m off-topic.

            Best,

          89. You pretend to know what I think all the time. You constantly accuse me of hating whites, and no matter what I say, you refuse to listen and continue to make asinine assumptions. So, you seem to can’t take what you dish out.

          90. Huh?

            I understand what you’re trying to say, BW, but seriously… PROOFREAD!

            Also, you’ll note that the last time I spoke of your feelings toward white people I thanked you for clarifying that you don’t hate us all. Now you’re just stalling, BW. Is that so you can avoid allowing me to reply to the post in which you libeled me in your blog? 🙂

            And…

            I read your mind correctly about your political positions, didn’t I?

            I always listen to what you say, and I reply in detail. Sometimes the detail I use annoys you. You can’t have it both ways, BW. I, obviously, listen to you.

            If you’re trying to say that I don’t take you seriously, then I suggest simply that you say something worth taking seriously.

            Best,

          91. If what a person says is stupid and hogwash, and someone listens to it, and that listener recognizes that what’s being said is stupid and hogwash, then the listener has a duty to call what’s being said stupid and hogwash.

            Furthermore, if what the listener calls stupid and hogwash is, indeed, stupid and hogwash, then that means, by definition, that the listener listened really well.

            You do understand that, right BW?

            Maybe you’re worried that I might not be listening sympathetically. But, I have a moral obligation to listen honestly, and no other way. That’s the courtesy that I extend to you, BW.

          92. You still haven’t answered my question. Do you honestly think that I and other blacks who discuss and/or fight against white racism enjoy it? Yes or no.

          93. I have a long response in train for this. It’s almost done. It requires more than a simple “Yes,” or “No,” because the answer is: “Yes and No”… with additional insight to come.

            Best,

            — x

          94. No. The question, whether you like it or not, has a lot to it. If you want simple, succinct answer, ask a question that would demand such an answer.

            Here’s the proper answer to your question:

            Yes. And no.

            Sorry. There are, indeed, two answers because there are black people who understand that white racism is not a big problem for them. And yet, they “fight” white racism, or discuss it. They love the “fight,” because it makes them rich and powerful.

            Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Melissa Harris-Perry, Touré, Barack Obama, Maxine Waters, John Lewis (a real hero, btw), John Conyers, Ron Dellums and so many others, at some point recognized that they were getting rich and powerful in a world they claimed was rigged against them. Rigged against them because the dominant demographic — white people — was overwhelmingly prejudiced against them!

            They were either really, really stupid — crashingly stupid — or else when they realized the unavoidable contradiction they chose to ignore it. That was the dishonesty and corruption of the Left.

            Maxine Waters is an idiot, but the others are not.

            They are high, high up in the Race Grievance Industry to which they owe their fame and fortune, so they’re also enslaved to the RGI. These people “fight” white racism, while being racists themselves, and, yes, they enjoy it. In fact they are the “race addicts” we’ve spoken of in these pages.

            However, the RGI’s principal tactic is to produce more foot soldiers — like you — who’ve all drunk their Kook-Aid, and who parrot their Stage 1 thinking, and run blogs like yours, and diary’s and herneith’s and others.

            Those foot soldiers, initially, at least do not like, as you say, “fighting against white racism,” most importantly because it’s so frustratingly hard to find. So they make it up as they go along, and the leadership who does enjoy — immensely! — the fortunes they make by complaining about how awful it is in America, pass along abstract, impossible to grasp sillinesses like “White Privilege,” and “White Supremacy,” and “Institutional Racism,” and “Systemic Racism.”

            After a while, the foot soldiers — who’ve become fully integrated into the political Left — give up “fighting racism” and become racists themselves. At this point, they, too, enjoy the fight. It may not make them rich and powerful, but they get emotional satisfaction from it. Largely because the media as well as the leadership of the RGI are constantly stroking their egos.

            However, things that can’t be defined or seen — like “White Privilege,” etc. — can’t be disproven either. That’s why the RGI invents them — and the half-wits in the media take up the cry, thereby ensuring that these non-existent things become part of “The Narrative.” And on and on and on and on it goes.

            Racism against black Americans is largely gone, so the leadership of the RGI have to fabricate it, and, as I’ve often said, “find” it under every rock, and around every corner.

            More to the point, the racism that mostly disappeared from the hearts and minds of white Americans, was replaced by a vast, overwhelming feeling of benevolent yearning for black success and prosperity. On the Left, though, it transformed into a deep, corrosive condescension, because the Left is not concerned with making improvements in America, but rather is obsessed with obtaining and retaining power. While on the Right, the satisfaction comes from solving problems.

            That, by the way, is the major distinction between the Left and the Right. The Left gets emotional satisfaction from obtaining power, while the Right gets the same feeling from solving problems.

            And that’s why the foot soldiers of the RGI give up fighting racism, and become racists themselves: because they’ve integrated into the Left. There are idealistic people out there who are genuine about their conflict with racism, but they’re not members of the RGI. In fact they’re Conservatives. These people — of the Right — who get their satisfaction from solving problem do and don’t “like” fighting against racism. The do like it, because it’s what they do; it’s their calling. They don’t like it, because they actually understand racism.. They recognize that they’re struggling not against a worthy opponent, whose defeat would be a real accomplishment, but rather they’re squaring off against morons; half-wits who are generally too stupid to engage productively in a debate with them. An opponent who is too stupid to understand the arguments against his own stupid arguments is the toughest of all.

            That’s why you need to un-ban us from your blog; because it makes you appear to be that dumb-as-a-rock stupid.

            You’re not stupid like that, BW, but at some point you also need to demonstrate that also! 🙂

            Best,

          95. Nope. As mentioned in the post, the answer is: “Yes and no.”

            Some, like you, are addicted to your perceived victimhood and would feel vulnerable if forced to admit that you’re using fake victimhood as an excuse for whatever… generally failure.

            Some actually do not like to “fight” white racism, but do it anyway. However, those who fight it are generally frustrated, because it’s not easy to find, and when it is found, there are a host of other white people right there condemning it right along with them.

            These sometimes end up being the ones who invent weird, abstract, invisible, undetectable “racisms.” Such “racisms,” because they’re unconscious, or “structural,” or “systemic,” are visible only to those who have the super secret password and the decoder ring… ie not white people.

            Your question was silly, in that of course people “like” to fight against perceived injustices — even if those injustices aren’t real. Fighting against injustice makes people feel good about themselves.

            It’s the reason you’re so defensive about your silly beliefs. The injustices you’re fighting are so infrequent and, as mentioned several times in these pages, not a big problem for black Americans anymore.

            I’d be defensive too, if I couldn’t successfully defend my beliefs — beliefs I declared “obvious” and “clearly true” — against an informed online interlocutor.

          96. Seriously, how delusional and immature are you to think you’re not part of the problem and not think that you may be in the wrong here?

            Black people who discuss and fight racism aren’t in the wrong and they don’t hate white people, but it seems you think they’re wrong for wanting to speaking up against the injustices you apparently choose to ignore. To you black people are good and smart if, and only if they agree with you. You basically prefer me and black people to be your house negroes.

            If you think those of us who refuse are wrong in any way, then you’re part of the problem. And you’re constant attacks at me are signs of pathological denial and ignorance that you seem to want to prove to me and anyone else who accepts reality. Are you that sick at not seeing how any of that is true and that maybe it’s you that needs to get a different perspective and a better understanding of how black people deal with life in America and not just from those who side for the right?

            Because I’m not part of the problem. The problem under discussion is racism. I’m not a racist. I’m not part of th eproblem. You are a racist. You are part of the problem. Your friends are racists. They’re part of the problem.

            My Reply:
            Correct. Black people who discuss and fight racism aren’t in the wrong. And they don’t necessarily hate white people. Your friend Diary, though, hates white people. If I were to wish all black people would die a violent death, then it would be fair to say that I hate black people. Diary wished that all white people would die a violent death. She’s a racist dirtbag. She is in the wrong. She is part of the problem. Others of your friends who make generalizations about white people are racists, and they are in the wrong. Anyone who says things like, “white people do [fill in the blank],” or “white people think [fill in the blank]”, or “white people are [fill in the blank]” are (generally) racists, and they’re in the wrong, and they’re part of the problem. You don’t like it when I quote you back to you, do you? 🙂

            I, of course, ignore no injustices. Go ahead and name one single injustice that I’ve ignored. Just one.

            Black people are good and smart, only if they’re good and smart. Duh! They don’t have to agree with me. No one has to agree with me to be “good and smart.” However, plenty of people who don’t agree with me are neither good nor smart. Diary for example. She’s an idiot, and you know it. And she’s just a really bad person.

            I won’t dignify your monumentally, massively, munificently moronic statement about “house hegroes” with a response. It was a waste of your time to type it; it would be a waste of my time to respond to it. It’s too stupid. It’s so moronic, it makes a lot of the tendentious, cloying, whining codswallop that is much of your other fare, seem less toweringly idiotic by comparison. (That’s some good snark, you have to admit. 🙂 )

            Refuse to what? Provide a single, solitary, substantive reaction to the thoughts I’ve posited here and at your blog? Yes, those people were wrong. Remember: You were the one who said that what you thought to be true was so obvious that anyone could see it. Well, if that’s the case, then you should have had something to back it up! Instead all you had were a bunch of irrelevant anecdotes and whining about how you didn’t like how I presented my ideas. All while your friends, and you, were calling me a racist, liar, psychotic, etc. Since I don’t attack you, I don’t worry about “pathological denial,” whatever that is, and I’m obviously not ignorant, or else you’d be able to counter my arguments easily. I already demonstrated that I know black lives better than you do, why do you have a problem with that? Do you pretend that you’re the all-knowing, all-seeing one? Seriously, BW? As for where I get my perspectives, since I obviously know the Leftist perspective better than most leftists, I guess I don’t have to worry about balancing out my information sources. You, on the other hand, might try exposing your brain to more thinking that is different from yours. Plainly, you engage only in confirmation bias.

            The defamatory things you said about me are in an essay of yours, entitled: “Yes, Africans DID Own White Slaves, BUT…

            Quick Note: Just so you know, the “BUT” at the end of the title is, as anyone who knows grammar at all knows, a way to negate what precedes the word. So, what you’re saying is that your piece is going to illustrate somehow the way in which the principal part of your headline — “Yes, Africans DID Own White Slaves” — is (1) false. Or, in the context of our back-and-forth, (2) somehow acceptable, or (3) less bad, or the like. As it turns out, you tried with one glib, unsubstantiated piece of whack-a-doodle hogwash — “” — you tried, and failed miserably to get to #3.

            Here are the way you libeled me:

            #1: In your very first paragraph, you accused me of trying to (along with other white people) “deviate from the sins of Caucasians by bringing up the sins of other people as if what they did wasn’t as — sinful” First: presumably, you meant “deflect?” Anyway, go ahead and read through everything I’ve written. Never once have I ever tried to minimize the wrong that white Americans did to slaves. Never, ever once, and I never would. It’s a damnable lie and a disgusting libel to say so, and I demand either (1) an open aoplogy, or (2) a chance to respond to this disgusting crap on your blog. Your response to this is a big test of your character. You have a chance to right a wrong here, and you need to do that for your own sake.

            #2: I have never once, ever, stated that the notion that there remains racism against black people is “hogwash.” Ever. It’s libelous to say so, and I demand either your open apology, or the right to defend myself on your blog. More to the point, I have conceded literally dozens, if not hundreds of times that there remains anti-black racism in America. I’ve said that so many times, I’ve lost count, and yet you give yourself permission to say that I believe that you’re trying to “promulgate the ‘hogwash’ notion that there is still racism against blacks”

            It’s not hogwash… there is racism in America against black people, and I’ve never, ever, ever, not even once, implied that there isn’t. I’ve even pointed it out to you: the condescension and infantilization of black people coming from the political Left. Needless to say, the majority race in the Left is white. Again, you owe me either an apology, of the opportunity to defend myself on your blog.

            #3: A mild quibble. You said: “So, it’s no shock that he would use variants of the argument as a deflection tactic, but he added a spin I never expected, that there were white slaves in Africa.

            Are you freakin’ kidding?!?! You brought up slavery — again and again and again — as your “proof” of white hostility to black people. I simply gave you the proper understanding of slavery. It was not about race — as you pointed out in the post — it was about economics, and sometimes, religion. You’ve frequently used slavery as part of your rationale for suggesting that white people remain hostile to black people. Yet, the real story of slavery shows that white slavers weren’t running around in Africa kidnapping black Africans, but were purchasing them from other black Africans who were selling them willingly. You’ve long tried to paint slavery as a simplistic story of white people cruelly victimizing black people, when the reality is that it’s a story of black people victimizing other black people, then of white slavers victimizing them. You and your commenters conveniently left out the fact that the it was black Africans who made the slave trade possible at all!

            This is not a “deflection,” this is the truth, and it means that you really have to take out the “slavery” piece of your arguments that America is a racist nation, filled with hostility toward black people. It’s just not true, and you should be man enough to admit it. Your insisting that I was trying to “deflect,” when I simply removed a major leg of all your argumentation is stupid. It’s not libel, but it’s moronic, and you need to be man enough to admit it.

            #4: You said: “However, xPraetorious hasn’t gone much deeper than making the claim.

            Yeah. So? I pointed out a truth to you. Am I supposed then to provide you with all the detail? Aren’t you a big boy? Can’t you look it up yourself. Everything that I stated was true, your idea that I didn’t then provide you with enough detail is kinda pathetic. More to the point, you’re plainly trying, an pathetically at that, that it was all just okay that there were more white slaves in Africa than there were black slaves in America. In other words, you constantly do nothing more than what you constantly accuse me of doing. Are you really going to try to pretend that slavery in Africa was okay, because blacks were enslaving whites? Really? If so, then I realize that I’ve been debating with a morally bankrupt person. Or an idiot. You’re not an idiot, so that leaves only…

            #5: You said:; “By bringing up white slavery, xPraetorious does not so much as to try to enlighten me on a history that most left wing news sites won’t dare touch, but to deal in white grievance” Wrong. And a lie. I’ve told you time and again, that I have no grievances. I’ve further said to you that white people in America — as white people — have no grievances. You’ve tried time and time and time again to pretend that I’m writing about “white grievance,” when I’m not, and never have.

            I have made the point that I don’t see black grievances — particularly as they pertain to race — are a big problem for black Americans today, and I proved it to you. Black people do have grievances, but they are against other black people, and against the American political Left, which has done its level best to destroy the black family, has consigned black Americans to ghetto death traps, has instituted the policies that have turned black American against black American, and continues to endorse such toxic policies. The problem with those grievance, though, is that black Americans signed onto the policies of the Left voluntarily. There’s not a single black person in the history of this country who was ever forced to take welfare, who was ever forced to take SNAP, who was ever forced to sell his or her soul to the government for a monthly check. Yet, there millions and millions of black Americans who did that very thing.

            #6: You said: “Again, it seemed more as a self-serving attempt to sway the conversation about race in favor to strengthen the benevolent white savior image.

            Hogwash! And some of your stupider hogwash at that! I’ve never tried to advance any kind of “white savior argument. It’s not being a “savior” to stop doing a bad thing, as white people did. Let’s look at it another way: if I come up to you and start punching you, and then I stop. I’m not being a “savior” when I stop punching you. I’m only quitting the bad behavior! You waste so much time and intellectual energy fabricating stupid, senseless, obviously false, moronic arguments that it’s really frustrating. Such arguments are sometimes so stupid that I wonder why I put up with answering them! They’re like kindergarteners’ arguments! I know you said that I’d say that “I like you,” and I do, but i like you a lot less when you say crashingly stupid stuff like this.

            #7: You quoted this paragraph: “Slavery was eliminated in America via the efforts of people of various ethnicities, including Caucasians, who took up the banner of the abolitionist movement. The names of the white leaders of that movement tend to be better known than those of the black leaders, among whom were David Walker, Frederick Douglass, Dred Scott, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Nat Turner, and many others. When Congress passed (and the states ratified) the 13th Amendment in 1865, it was the culmination of many years of work by that multi-racial movement.

            You were attempting to imply that I thought that the abolitionist movement was a purely white movement. I never said this either, nor did I ever even imply it. Are you really trying to pretend that I thought that white people did not work with black people in the abolitionist movement? Seriously?

            Look: your bringing up all the things I haven’t said as arguments against me is illegitimate as a conversation or debate element. More to the point, though, it’s flailing.

            If I were to say everything there is to say to you to cover every single element of every single topic, I’d be writing forever. As it is, you whine to me all the time about the length of my responses! Then you try to castigate me for not saying everything? You can’t have it both ways. Don’t point out something I didn’t say, and hold it against me, because you have no possible idea whether I believe it or not. As it turns out, the above-quoted paragraph could have been written by me. Everyone knows that the abolitionist movement was a multi-racial movement.

            However, what I’ve pointed out to you is the fact that white people, as a race are the only identifiable group — in the world to have undergone a comprehensive, exhaustive, ongoing, assessment of their own behavior as it pertains to every other identifiable group on the planet. That remains true. This includes, by the way, a strong current of thought chewing over the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as the firebombings of Dresden and Cologne.

            #8: You accused me of: “reducing historical events to short sentence foot notes to merely win arguments and silence any actual grievance is intellectually dishonest at best and morally repugnant at worst.

            Oh? Now you’re accusing me of “reducing historical events to short sentence foot notes“?!?!? Wow! Seriously? I don’t write enough? I don’t cover enough ground? Now you’re just flailing. And the accusation is libelous, because you said that what I do is “dishonest at best and morally repugnant at worst

            You owe me either a public apology for each of the above points, or you owe me a chance to respond on your blog. If you do neither, then that is morally repugnant. And cowardly.

            Should I hold my breath, or are you going to show yourself to be inadequate — again — to the task of being a real man?

          99. So, what are you going to do, send me to court over a blog post if I don’t comply to your wants??

            You know what? Do and say whatever you want, because I’m done trying to talk to you. I tried and failed to get you to see from the differing point of view of a Black American hoping each time you may consider without sounding like a bratish schoolyard bully, but I’m finally seeing that would be a waste of time.

          100. I listen to Black Americans all the time. Many with really dumb ideas like yours, and many with really intelligent ideas, and many with ideas somewhere in between. You think I sound like a “bratish schoolyard bully” because you don’t have any answers to our thinking.

          102. I’m re-reading it, but you appear to have publicly disavowed the comment.

            Seriously: I’d never have allowed that to stand on any web site I manage… ever. Not for even one minute.

            If you didn’t actually disavow Diary’s insane comment — without adding in a whole load of weasel words — then you’re the insanity, and you need to face that.

          103. Okay. You’re a pest anyway. And an ignorant pest at that.

            One last thought. When I was a 12-year old, I knew everything, and just like you, no one could tell me anything.

            It was also at about age 12 that I did some growing up, and realized that I had no idea what I didn’t know, so I determined to find out.

            I went on a decades-long quest for knowledge. I studied anything and everything. In the process, I learned and did a whole bunch of things along the way.

            For instance, I learned four different languages, learned how to paint and draw, how to program computers, how to do public presentations and speaking, I became a virtuoso guitarist, I played two sports professionally, I taught at the college level, I ran for office and won — in two different countries! — I’m the single parent of two wonderful children — both of whom are leaders themselves! — I’ve written 12 books, and a bunch of post-graduate dissertations, I’ve served in election campaigns for Presidents, Senators, Congressmen, Congresswomen, local Assemblymen and women, three Governors and probably more.

            I’ve spent decades taking in, confronting, beating, losing to, assimilating, rejecting, wrassling with ideas that were different, or even deeply different, from my own. And l learned to love the mind-expanding nature of confronting ideas that were at odds with my own.

            Furthermore, I found out, that was when I grew the most… when I had to react to ideas that were not my own, and that differed from mine.

            The more I learned, the better I saw the extent of the universe of stuff I didn’t know! Put differently, the more I knew, the more I knew just how little I knew.

            You, BW, could benefit from a bunch of exposure to the ideas of people who disagree with you. You don’t do that. How do I know? Easy: you ban them if they get too uppity on your blog. You’ve abused me here way more than I was ever rude to you… anywhere… and I’ve never even come close to banning you. Never even thought of it.

            Best,

            — x

          104. I don’t hate the American Left. Again, stop pretending you know what I feel or think.

            I report on the Left. They’re the single greatest threat to the single greatest country that’s ever existed, so they fascinate me. They’re a generally odious group, but I don’t hate them at all.

            I hate the leaders of, say, ISIS — and I admit that goes contrary to my Christian beliefs, and I’m trying to overcome that — but I have no hatred whatsoever for the Left.

            It doesn’t bother me at all what you are. However, you constantly say a bunch of patently stupid or incorrect things, or — amazingly — things you couldn’t possibly know… I correct you. That’s all.

            Again, there are many dangers to this country — the greatest country that’s ever existed — and one of the principal ones is the ignorance of the Left, and of groups like the RGI.

            If a stupid or false public statement by a representative of some wacky group is out there, and it goes uncorrected, it might influence other impressionable minds. It’s the duty of all sober-minded Americans to correct imbecility such as what the Left and the RGI put out there all the time.

            By the way, the imbecility happens because of only one thing: laziness.

            The Left is solidly enmired in Stage 1 thinking, and they’re generally too lazy or insecure to do the hard intellectual work to refine their thinking to get to Stage 2, which is also inadequate.

            Some leftists get to Stage 2, but are then too lazy to go on to Stage 3. Furthermore, they figure that since they’ve advanced on beyond Stage 1, they don’t have to advance further.

            One’s thinking needs to be at least at Stage 6 before it has a decent chance of being something accurate, or worthy of proposing as a policy solution for a problem.

            You’re a complete Stage 1 dude, BW — I’ve never heard you advance any argument higher than Stage 1 — and I always argue with you from about a Stage 3 perspective. You likely wouldn’t understand Stage 6 material, and would say that I’m off-topic.

            So, after that brief digression, since, politically at least, you support all the positions of the Left, then you’re a leftist. This, also, should not be controversial. Dude, you said you admit to things when they’re true. If you’re going to pretend to me that supporting all the policy positions of the Left somehow allows you not to be a leftist, then you simply prove my position that you’re not serious.

            Now, though, I’d point you to something you wrote. In a recent piece, you said something to the effect that, “If you support Trump, then you share his characteristics.”

            I demurred, but the nub of your thinking — Stage 1 though it is, has some merit.

            You support the Left, therefore — according to your very reasoning, you share the Left’s characteristics: their dishonesty, corruption, awful character, their racism, hatreds, bias, emotional and physical violence, their personal ugliness.

            Don’t get me wrong, BW… having these characteristics doesn’t make you a bad person… it’s a question of the extent to which those characteristics are strong in you.

            They’re very strong in the Left in general; you’re a leftist; ipso facto…

          105. Nope. It’s a fact.

            The truth is the truth. There’s no mood associated with the truth. Simple as that.

            If someone presents the truth to you, no matter the means of that presentation, you should be grateful

            BW, there’s so much phoniness, so much dishonesty, fraud, deception and hackery out there, you should be falling all over yourself to be grateful to anyone who tells you the truth!

            Part of the problem is that, as a member of the RGI, you’re surrounded by fraud and dishonesty from those who call themselves your “friends,” so it’s probably difficult for you to recognize what’s true or false anyway.

          106. One quick note. Of course, you’re not “my negro,” but you do, apparently, think that I’m yours, as are all white people.

            As it turns out, though, we’re not. The idea that it’s valid to own another person went away more than 150 years ago.

            You should know this.

            As for not wanting to hear from “a point of view I’m uncomfortable with,” my interaction with you has convincingly disproven that one. BW, you need to stop making things up.

          107. Then again, I MIGHT do it for you, if and ONLY I F you stop condemning me and other black people who argue against white racism, start listening to them and stop trying to tell them that antiblack racism is no big deal and discounting their thoughts, views, opinions and experiences that bother yours.

          108. Lol!

            Of course! I agree!

            Here goes: I CONDEMN ALL HOSTILITY DIRECTED BY WHITE PEOPLE TOWARD BLACK PEOPLE ON THE BASIS OF THEIR SKIN COLOR!

            If you don’t like that phrasing, there’s this:

            I CONDEMN UNEQUIVOCALLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY ALL WHITE RACISM DIRECTED TOWARD BLACK PEOPLE, IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES AT ALL TIMES, IN ALL PLACES.

            That’s easy. That’s always been the position of this blog, and of all its writers.

            This is also the position of this web site: WE SUPPORT UNAMBIGUOUSLY THE EFFORTS OF ALL BLACK PEOPLE WHO ARGUE AGAINST WHITE RACISM.

            That, also, has always been the position of this blog.

            And, I’d maintain that I can prove conclusively that I “listen” intently to you. After all, my replies address every last one of your points nearly every time. You’ve often complained about it. However, my point in doing that is to show that there’s no possible way to suggest that I don’t listen to your complaints, or hear them. I obviously do. I listen… closely.

            All racism is a “big deal.” Anti-white, or anti-black. And all racism that affects anyone is a big deal… for</i. that person.

            What you’ve done is show instances of individual acts that may or may not be examples of racism directed at black people.

            What you have manifestly failed to do it so demonstrate that: (1) such racism is widespread in America, or (2) that it’s a big problem for all black Americans. I’ve

            For example, as I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been refused employment, housing, and promotion probably a dozen times in my life, all due to the color of my skin, or my sex. However, I’ve never pretended that such racism and sexism directed toward me is proof of a general big problem in those regards for white men.

            Just so you know, I never condemn your efforts against anti-white racism. I do condemn your efforts, and the efforts of your usual commenters, to pretend that all white people are anti-black racists. We’re not, not even close. There are a tiny and diminishing minority of us who hold stupid views, and they are going away as more and more people realize how stupid racism is.

            To your credit, you’ve said — on my blog here — that not all white people are racists. You need to do it on your blog, where it’s a more powerful statement. And you need to stop pretending that I’m telling you what to write on your blog. I’m telling you what I wish you’d write on your blog, to indicate that these revelations of yours are serious revelations.

            You have to realize that if you publicly renounce Diary’s genocidal fantasy on your blog, as I would have done here, then you risk getting some serious blow back from your usual commenters.

            However, honesty is important! Do you believe what you say you do, or not? If so, then say it on your blog. Your talk here is fine, but a lot cheaper than on your blog, the official published words of BW.

            Lastly, I never, ever discount your views, or the views of your commenters and friends. I do discount — and firmly reject, as you should — all attempts to take isolated incidents and anecdotes that may or may not be racism, and pretend that they tell us anything at all of value about the state of white or black America today. They simply don’t. You and your commenters, along with the entire Left political wing of the American commentariat, are constantly guilty of using this disreputable tactic.

            You and your commenters are constantly highlighting an incident of friction or violence between a white and black person, and implying that it proves that all white people are seething with hatred toward all black people. It’s the worst possible kind of dishonest conclusion, and it’s the result of only (1) laziness, (2) anti-white racism itself, (3) confirmation bias (also: intellectual laziness), (4) dishonesty, or (5) some combination of the previous four. You get to take your pick.

            Bottom line: there simply is no good reason on earth to pretend that anecdotes about stressful situations between white and black people suffice to give you an understanding about the general states of mind of what people in America.

            Finally, the belief that white skin itself is proof of anti-black racism is out there, and you are a believer. You talk about “whiteness” as a problem. Well, guess what… every white person has “whiteness.” As it’s properly defined, that is. As it’s been perverted today, to mean a general, even unconscious feeling of privilege and superiority, it implies that all white people are not only racist, but regularly and even unconsciously participate all the time in activities that degrade or harm black people. That’s a whole boatload of hogwash. And it’s racist. And you who call yourself “anti-racist” should denounce it in no uncertain terms. But you don’t, and you haven’t.

            So, yes, I agree, as you’ve seen above, to denounce and condemn all anti-black racism.

            In fact, I did that very thing above. I’ll be happy to devote an entire blog post to my denunciation of racism directed toward black Americans!

            Now, I hope you’ll have the courage, wisdom and honesty to denounce and condemn all instances of anti-white racism on your blog.

            And, of course, I hope you’ll have the courage and common decency to denounce Diary’s lunatic fantasy — again on your blog.

            Best,

          109. “I CONDEMN UNEQUIVOCALLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY ALL WHITE RACISM DIRECTED TOWARD BLACK PEOPLE, IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES AT ALL TIMES, IN ALL PLACES.”

            I would accept it if it weren’t for the following statements you made on the so-called RGI:

            “The Race Grievance Industry is fond of taking a single incident, and using it to say, “See? See? This proves that all white people are racists, and that there’s all sorts of ‘White Privilege’ around, and that America is awash in toxic ‘White Supremacy!’” and so forth.”

            “Make no mistake about it: Adolf Hitler was able to come to power and start World War II, which killed 54 million people, because he was able to establish a vast, sprawling Race Grievance Industry in Germany, nearly identical to the one attacking America today.”

            “The leadership of the RGI are, indeed, totalitarian fascist, absolutely dependent on the unthinking allegiance of dupes like BW. And these patsies want to be important, without doing the actual work necessary to be substantively important.

            They’re not bad sorts, though, the patsies like BW, but they are the equivalent of those idealistic Nazis in pre-World War II Germany who, in way over their heads, either said or did nothing, or worse, supported Adolf Hitler’s Race Grievance Industry in the 1930’s.”

            Comparing what I and black people who speak out against racism are doing to that of Nazi Germany, and you don’t think people would see how such a comparison is thoughtless and immoral? If not, it proves that you’re not the least bit interested in having a serious conversation about racism when you make these outrageous comparisons and that you really don’t care about the welfare of black people in this nation.

            You’re so fearfully obsessed with that one statement by diary, and you can’t even bring yourself to take what black people are saying when they refuse to say “You’re right. Racism is not a big problem for us anymore.” And don’t even try to twist words around, that’s the general idea of what you’re saying.

            Yet, you contradict yourself by searching for blogs like mine and Abagond and insert yourself into the conversation to rile people up as oppose to learning anything. We both know that no one forced you to come there, but you did anyway, and you can’t blame that on us by telling us that our blogs are open to everyone. No, you took it upon yourself to comment when you didn’t have to, and make so many asinine comments to the point where we had to kick you out, because you essentially were doing nothing productive but cause trouble seemingly for trouble’s sake.

            Whether you think you were is irrelevant. It’s how you conducted yourself is what led to us banning you, and you seem to not want to accept that it was on you, because you seem entitled.

            I will denounce what Diary said, but just remember, you were the one butthurt about that one comment, and you chose to hold onto it as an example of the imaginary racism that white people face.

            You still haven’t provided any clear examples of how racism against white people, personal or otherwise. You just gave me two names and that’s it. No explanation.

            Anyway, I will talk about diary’s comment, but on my own time, not yours.

          110. You said:
            (quoting me) “I CONDEMN UNEQUIVOCALLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY ALL WHITE RACISM DIRECTED TOWARD BLACK PEOPLE, IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES AT ALL TIMES, IN ALL PLACES.”
            My reply:
            Yes, that was an accurate quote of mine. Really unambiguous, eh? Shouldn’t be anything you’d object to, yet still…
            ———————————————

            You said:
            I would accept it if it weren’t for the following statements you made on the so-called RGI:
            My reply:
            Lol! So funny! A rather transparent moving of the goalposts, BW! How did I know that you wouldn’t accept an absolutely unambiguous, absolutely unequivocal declaration from me that I oppose all racism? Because, as I said, you’re not serious about your so-called “anti-racism.” By not “accepting” my very plain anti-racism declaration, the only alternative is that you reject it. Therefore, you’ve demonstrated that even when real anti-racists demonstrate beyond a shadow of a doubt that they’re genuinely against racism, you won’t accept it.

            Serious question: How does anyone reject an absolutely unambiguous condemnation of white racism… from any source?!? No exceptions. You should have leaped all over that, and exulted in its clarity! Yet, you still couldn’t let yourself. Likely because you’ve finally realized that we’re the ones who are serious about being against racism, and not you and those who believe as you do.

            As I’ve said, you’re not serious about anti-racism; rather you use some vague, never attainable, never understandable definition of racism that always means, regardless of the reality all around you, that white people are racists, that I’m a racist, and that you’re somehow anti-racist despite your clear admission that you’re a racist! BW: that’s the twisted, convoluted, wacky, nonsensical corner into which you’re painted yourself.

            I’m sorry, BW, I like you a lot, but you are not, in any way serious about being anti-racist. You are rather, a racism addict; so thoroughly attached to the hatred you imagine to be all around you, that even though it largely vanished decades ago, you can’t let it go. It’s like that ratty old house coat that you simply can’t get rid of, because, well, you’ve always had it, and you can’t stand change. The world — especially the “white world” (to coin a phrase) grew up and left the dinosaurs like you behind as the only racists around. Still pretending that whitey is out to get you, still seeing racism under every rock and around every corner, and still using all that imaginary racism as an excuse for failure.

            My reply:
            Yep. That’s also what I said. Also because it’s true. In retrospect, I might have amended the above to say, “…without doing the actual intellectual work necessary…”

            (Finally! The following passage is from BW) Comparing what I and black people who speak out against racism are doing to that of Nazi Germany, and you don’t think people would see how such a comparison is thoughtless and immoral? If not, it proves that you’re not the least bit interested in having a serious conversation about racism when you make these outrageous comparisons and that you really don’t care about the welfare of black people in this nation.
            My reply:
            The problem is that you don’t speak out against racism. As I said in a previous post (paraphrasing one of my favorite quotes), “The new racists are here, and they’re the ones waving the banner of anti-racism.

            Look, BW… you on the Left have nothing to say to Conservatives like me about being “thoughtless and immoral” for the terminology we might use. I’ve been called a racist, liar, paychotic, stupid, dishonest, ignorant, and yes, fascist and Nazi, more times than I can count… Oh, and many times by you.

            To your vast credit, you did apologize, but you’re just one person. I’ve heard it a thousand times from people who either looked at my white skin and concluded that I’m a racist (like you) or who looked at my Conservative beliefs and called me a Fascist or a Nazi. Along with all the rest — racist, liar, woman-hater, gay-hater, black-hater, brown-hater, etc… The list is long. The point was to shut down my thinking. They didn’t want to do the actual work of proving that my thinking was somehow wrong. They figured that if they could shut me up — with the accusations and the name-calling — then they could shut out my challenges to their thinking. And, of course, since the media are largely in agreement, the illegitimate tactic largely… worked. That was, and is, no excuse for me to stop trying to persuade people to hear what I say. As it is for you. Your task is to persuade people to hear what you say, to speak persuasively, and to encourage people to act on your prescriptions. Simple as that.

            However, you, and so many like you, are still doing their level best to shut people like me up. WEll, we have something to say… something important. 🙂

Racism is not a big problem for us anymore.” And don’t even try to twist words around, that’s the general idea of what you’re saying.
            My reply:
            Lol! Mostly nope. Yes, I am trying to say that white racism is not a big problem for black Americans anymore, and I’ve proven it persuasively. However, your own racism is a big problem for you, and for so many black Americans, for whom it is the default state of mind.

            About your friend, Diary… she loaded up my guns with ammunition. It would be silly of me not to use all that ammunition, right? However, I don’t obsess over what she said at all. I have to admit, though, it remains “out there” for all to see, unrefuted by anyone but us. I would think that someone in your group of commenters would have thought that her fantasy was, ummmm… inconvenient at the very least. But, nope. Not only did you fail to condemn its lunacy, read this well, none of your commenters did either! That ship has sailed long ago. I’m suggesting that you condemn it for your sake. For the sake of your emotional, intellectual, psychological well-being. Your racist commenter friends already proved they’re horrible people. I don’t thing that you are.

            When I told you that I wouldn’t allow such crap on our blog, I meant it. I understood that if I allowed a disgusting thing like that to go uncondemned, then I was saying that I endorsed the thought. Then — horror upon horrors! — you actually did endorse the psychotic fantasy!!! I’ve been trying to persuade you to reject it for your sake. Because I like you.

            I “take what black people are saying” all the time. I did nothing more than to challenge you, and your commenters, to prove me wrong. I advanced a simple premise — “White racism is not a big problem for black Americans in America today” — and challenged someone to prove me wrong. If someone had done that, I’d have admitted it and said the opposite. However, our back-and-forths simply reinforced my original assertion. You’ve tried stubbornly, persistently (if not manfully), but you’ve never, not even once, advanced a credible argument or point to prove my assertion wrong.

            Please don’t get me wrong. I like a convincing web site, or commentator just as much as the next guy, and I quote them all the time, but only — and read this well — when someone else has said something better than I have. Otherwise, my thinking has been original, based on my own extensive research. When I quote someone, or link to something he’s said, it’s because I already agree with him, but I like the way he said it. That’s the only reason I link to other sources. Here’s an important note: in all our exchanges, I have also linked to commentators who have disagreed with me, and I’ve pointed it out to you.

            Since my thinking is all original, and I don’t take the lazy way out by linking to other people’s thinking, then I expect the same from you. Oh, I have no problem with your seeking others to buttress your beliefs, or to find a better way to say something… just as long as you’re also seeking out others who disagree with you, who challenge your beliefs. Only then can you actually test what you believe, to see whether it has a decent chance of being valid, or to see whether it’s a bunch of codswallop. This is the most important passage I’ll have ever written to you, BW: You have said time and again, that you don’t challenge what you believe. You’ve said time and again to me that I’ll never convince you of anything, and you then gave the most nonsensical possible reason: you didn’t like how I presented my thinking to you. That’s the single most important sign of an unserious thinker or commenter.

            Again, to your vast credit, you have, however, demonstrated — by hanging in there with me — that you do have a chance of learning and growing, and of shedding the hogwash that pervades much of your thinking.
            ———————————————

            My reply:
            No contradiction. Again, your blogs are out there for the world to see. I’m not on Mars; I can see your blogs. Again, if you don’t want undesirable other opinions on your site, then restrict access to it. However, if you make it available to the world, then don’t be upset if those who live somewhere here in the world come to it, read it, and react to it. The blog — and our visits to it — are your fault. One hundred percent. I seek out blogs like yours to engage with people who will challenge my thinking, to see whether my thinking is robust enough to withstand such challenges. And, of course, you kicked me out because you were unable to counter my thinking. And my thinking was ummmm… inconvenient for your amen chorus to see. After all, if my thinking remained uninsulted, unsneered at, unjeered at, then there was a chance that some of your commenters might be affected by it. Especially since I was always polite in my presentation of my thinking. I don’t blame you, it’s all part of the Left’s handbook. I’m trying to liberate you from the hogwash of the Left. It’s a common story. The cure for cancer is painful; as is the cure for the disease of leftism. That cure requires that you engage in some serious self-examination, and that you be willing to grow and learn. Sometimes defeating cancer is easier than defeating immaturity and stupidity in a man.

            My reply:
            Hogwash. You and your commenters were one hundred times more rude to me than I was to any of you. That’s beyond dispute. You have to come up with some other excuse for having banned us, or it remains out there: you banned us because you couldn’t prove any of us wrong, and you were, and are, insecure in your thinking, and afraid to have it challenged. Sorry. Just the way it is. Go ahead, and re-read it. What you, Herneith, Diary, and so many others called me (and my colleague) was way, way, way worse than anything I (we) ever said to any of you, or to any of your commenters. Try again.
            ———————————————

            My reply:
            Lol! That’s just funny, BW. I haven’t been hurt by something that someone’s said — much less something someone’s written! — in decades! Again, I don’t care if you ever denounce Diary and her psychotic fantasy, but if you don’t, then you leave it out there (1) said by her, and (2) endorsed by you. I quote the passage for your reference again, below:

            Diary: My wish is for a solar assassination of their nasty, beastiality-loving, pale asses.

            By (sic) f###ers.

            Don’t let the door hit ya on the way out!

            On second thought…I hope the door hits them real hard.

            Your Response (direct quote): “If it does hit them, they’ll likely blame it on blacks, Hispanics, Jews, and anyone else. lol”

            Yeah. Lol! Real funny thing that! Fantasizing for the violent death of more than a billion men, women and children… and only because they look like me. Imagine if that were a white person wishing a “solar assassination” on all black people on the planet. Lol then, BW? Lol?

            Again, I don’t care whether you ever reject Diary’s lunacy, but if you don’t then I have no choice but to conclude that you continue to endorse it, as it’s the last thing said on the matter both by Diary and you.
            ———————————————

            You said:

            My reply:
            Ummmm… this last paragraph of yours makes no sense. I have been turned down for employment, promotion, housing at least a dozen times in my life because of the color of my skin, or because of my sex. See that reference here. You and I both know that there’s no danger to career, family or any other aspect of your life by proclaiming at the top of your lungs how horrible you think white people are. You don’t need me to point to any examples of white people losing job, career, livelihood or family, because of having made an injudicious remark about black people, gays, women, transes or any other group. Heck, our very interaction came about because you posted something positively idiotic about Paula Deen who had hinted that she’d said something (to be precise: the “n” word) some 25 years before! She lost her job, her career, friends, and more than 60 million dollars. Our entire interaction is the “explanation” you need. Stop flailing, BW.
            ———————————————

            You said:
            Anyway, I will talk about diary’s comment, but on my own time, not yours.
            My reply:
            Whatever, BW. 🙂 Again, it’s not for me… it’s for you. Every day that goes by in which you fail to reject a lunatic fantasy that appeared on your blog is a day in which that continues to hollow out your soul. Every day in which you fail to refute the disgusting fantasy is another loss for your personal integrity, for your decency, for your honesty. Look, if I were to confront a sympathetic commenter who then unburdened herself of a piece of crap like Diary’s I’d see — immediately — to addressing it, and to getting it into the rear-view mirror. I enjoy it when people comment on our blog, in agreement with me, or with someone of my colleagues, but not when they say something that I categorically reject as atrocious or horrible. At this point, you are on record as having endorsed Diary’s fantasy that all white people be wiped out by some “solar assassination.” I’d ,i>never allow myself to be on record for that, under any circumstances, for any length of time. You’ve been on record supporting genocide against white people for more almost four years now (since March 23, 2014). I don’t ask this question for my own benefit, but for yours: What are you going to do about that? I ask that for your benefit, BW. Who are you as a man? Who are you as a black man? Or are you simply as bad as all that you co loudly condemn in your writings? You don’t have any need to answer that to me, but you do need to answer it to yourself.

          111. It’s more socially, and politically acceptable to demonstrate anti-white racism.

            No one ever got into trouble saying overtly racist things about all white people. I point you again to people on your own blog who have no fear whatsoever of saying completely outrageous, libelous, horrible things about all white people. They do this, because they know they have nothing to fear from doing it. No social consequences, no professional consequences, no political consequences. By the way… that is as it should be. I’m a free speech absolutist.

            However, plenty of people have lost their jobs, their careers, their livelihoods, sometimes their families and friends, by making remarks often of the most innocuous nature. Tim Hunt comes to mind. Trent Lott. Many, many more.

            By the way, we on the Right are, finally, showing the courage to push back, and to say cut it out. This is a very, very welcome development for freedom for all people in America.

            Best,

            — x

          112. Is this REALLY about white people, or is this REALLY about YOU? Do you believe you’ve experienced discrimination based on skin color? If so, and if you think anti-white racism is a major thing, why then is anti-black racism not a thing?

          113. It’s about you.

            I have experienced discrimination based on my skin color. I was refused a mortgage because I’m white, and because the mortgage company — for whom I was the webmaster, by the way — needed more “white refusals.” The Affirmative Action Officer of the company admitted it to me — in those very words.

            However, as a result of that discrimination, I have never tried to pretend that I’m a victim. I’ve already told you this story, BW… please try to pay attention.

            I don’t think that anti-white racism is “a major thing,” and I’ve never said that it is, only that there’s more of it than there is or anti-black racism. This shouldn’t be controversial.

            Neither is a big problem for either population.

            Anti-black racism is “a thing, just not a big thing.

            Honestly, BW, you tire me out with making me repeat myself all the time.

            Best,

            — x

          114. So, that’s it. You were refused a mortage based on, according to you, skin color, and you think that has the same impact as the racism faced by people of color, especially black people???

            If so, you must really be sheltered and very delicate to think in such a way.

            Look, I’m sorry that happened. I really am. BUT don’t expect me or anyone else to feel for you when you refuse to feel for others.

          115. BW: You’re not an idiot. Why do you play one online?

            Your first paragraph is moronic. If you’d read what I said you’d realize that it’s actually documented that I was refused a mortgage based on the color of my skin. Not “according to me,” but an official statement by the Affirmative Action Officer — a black woman — who shamefacedly told me that the mortgage company had refused my mortgage application because I’m white. She was a friend of mine, and she told me that she was deeply ashamed, as a black woman, to have to tell me that. She further told me that the company engaged in regular refusal of white mortgage applicants, for the sole reason that they were white. The company’s goal, she said, was to be sure that white refusals were disproportionately high, while minority refusals were disproportionately low. By engaging in active discrimination against white mortgage applicants, the company’s top management figured that would immunize them against any charges of racial bias.

            I also gave you some further insights into my experiences with racial discrimination, in which I told you of employment, promotion and housing that I’ve been denied either because I’m white, a man, or sexually normal. And, no, I’m not calling myself a victim, just reporting what’s happened.

            Your second paragraph is a silly throwaway. Honestly, BW, why do you waste my time and yours with such tripe? I’ll help you yet again. You couldn’t possibly know how sheltered or delicate I am. And when you do the silly insults, you only make yourself appear sheltered and delicate. And you appear to be out of ammunition.

            Your third paragraph is something I’d never allow to appear in print. It’s an open admission that you’re a bad person. A good person “feels” for others regardless of their circumstances. It’s called “empathy,” BW… you might want to try to obtain some sometime. It’ll make you a better person. And, since you’re a racist, and have just confessed that any empathy you feel is dependent on whether someone believes as you do, you’re plainly in serious need of improvement as a person.

          116. I’m not an idiot, but you treat me like one, and again, anything you say I don’t believe. I simply don’t believe you, and you have given me NO reason to listen to you, because you REFUSE to actually listen to others without telling them what to think and feel.

          117. I treat the idiotic things you say as, well, idiotic. Only because they are. I don’t treat you as an idiot. It’s an important distinction.

            I get a kick out of your constant accusations that I “never listen” to others. You can’t accuse me of “not listening” and, in the very next breath, whine to me that my responses to you are too long and too detailed.

            You really should make up your mind. You’re flailing, and your flailing is just silly.

          118. You don’t listen, because you tell me what racism is and reject what I say about it. That is what not listening means. It also shows that you prefer to be ignorant in what you think racism is instead of question and learning what it actually is. Like I said, if you’re not willing to learn, you’re in no position to teach.

          119. Ummmmm… the lack of clarity in your self-expression is, of course… your fault.

            You should deal with it… it would make all your interactions a lot easier.

          120. Lol! Again, I have to be the bigger man!

            Why, seriously, do you fixate on my manner of presentation? Are you that sensitive? If you are, then I will adopt a different style. I was merely matching yours.

            Don’t forget, you employ some seriously hostile self-expression when you write to me too. I write tactically. That’s all.

            I have no problem adopting a different style if it’s really hurting your feelings. I just can’t believe that a mere blog post can hurt someone’s feelings.

          121. Because in conversations about race, black people are expected to be nice, polite and considerate of white people’s feelings. But some white people don’t think that same courtesy applies to them. We’re told to watch our tone, but they don’t think they have to watch theirs.

            And if you can’t see how the issue is emotional, you have no right to tell others what they should or shouldn’t feel.

          122. Lol! Nope. It’s expected that in conversations about race, we white people will hang our heads in shame as black people berate us and tell us all about the horrible things we’ve done to them.

            In any conversation, white people are expected to shut up and take the bitterness of black people as a well-deserved rebuke. All conversations about race involving white and black people are expected to take that form.

            Please don’t pretend to tell me how I’m supposed to feel or act in a conversation about race, because you’re not white, so you couldn’t possibly know. (hint, hint… did you see the lesson in that, BW?)

            Black people are expected to be polite in any conversations, because all people are expected to be polite in any conversations. We call it “manners.”

            Sorry, that was condescending. 🙂

          123. So, black people are airing their grievances and that makes you feel bad. If your fragile feelings matter more than the truths about what black people deal with when it comes to white racism and the people who use it, then it shows how less of a human being you actually are. And crying about it more only further proves it.

          124. Lol! Nope. Nothing anyone has ever said on a blog has ever made me feel bad.

            I haven’t read any truths about what black people deal with in your content. I’ve read a bunch of anecdotes, as well as fabrications, and then insults, abuse, and finally banning… all in the context of a whole bunch of whining!

            There were no “truths” in there… not about white racism, anyway. There was a bunch of paranoid maundering and ridiculous, unsupported generalizations. That was it.

          125. Thank goodness I’d never do that.

            But, yes, free speech is, of course, a license to talk out of your [deleted, mild profanity].

            Someone once said, “Free speech either is, or it is not.” I agree.

            That’s a free speech lesson.

          126. And someone also said that for every action, there’s an equal but opposite reaction. Besides, you’ve contradicted yourself again when you censored yourself. Isn’t that going against free speech?

          127. As you probably know, I try to keep profanity off my blog.

            Now, if you were using the word “ass” to refer to a donkey, or even to a jerk, that would be fine. Not, however, if you’re referring to someone’s backside. You should try to refine your vocabulary. You do try to be a writer, don’t you?

          128. I don’t censor ideas… I do edit the content of what people say. If I require you to use more elevated writing, then I’m really doing you a favor in demanding that you stretch yourself.

            “Censorship,” properly understood, is the suppression of the free exchange of ideas. I never, ever, ever prevent you from expressing your thoughts and ideas. I simply require that you do it without profanity, cheap insults, and other rhetorical inappropriatenesses. (<– new word… I kinda like it!)

            You wouldn't use your potty mouth in church, but you still wouldn't feel as though you're being shut up.

          129. Wrong. At no time to I prevent you from expressing yourself on any topic whatsoever. That’s what censorship is… not requiring that you not use a potty mouth.

            Honestly, BW… do I really have to give you a vocabulary lesson all the time? 🙂 You have a dictionary… look it up! What I do is not censorship.

            Best,

          130. Dude: Censorship is the suppression of ideas, and communication, not individual words like f##k, or a##, or s##t.

            This is kinda basic.

            Again, use a dictionary once in a while.

            Sheesh!

          131. As indicated, I am a free speech absolutist. I engage in no censorship, and I believe that anyone who censors is afraid of what they might be censoring, because they’re insecure in their thinking.

            Get off the red herrings, or I’ll ask you if you’ve finally stopped molesting small farm animals, and then build up a whole logic trail around how you’ve never proven that you don’t molest small farm animals.

            Anyone can go off-topic, but there’s no point, when there’s a perfectly fine topic to discuss.

            You censor people and their ideas and thoughts… I don’t. Simple as that.

          133. Nope. Get a dictionary, Dude. 🙂

            You call that “fear” because you want it to be fear.

            Since, I’ve never prevented anyone ever from expressing anything here, I obviously don’t engage in anything like censorship.

            You’ve freakin’ banned people! That’s censorship! The Left is so good at censorship, they don’t even know they’re doing it anymore!

          134. I call it fear because I want it to be fear. Isn’t that the same as telling me that racism against black people isn’t a major issue, because you don’t want it to be a major issue, especially to you?

            And I banned people, because (1) they were mere trolls or acting like trolls and (2), I have the right to do so.

          135. You said: “I call it fear because I want it to be fear. Isn’t that the same as telling me that racism against black people isn’t a major issue, because you don’t want it to be a major issue, especially to you?”

            Answer: No.

            About banning people: there simply is no reason to ban people like us except because you want to be able to say something and not have to deal with any pushback. Sorry. You couldn’t turn back any of our arguments, so instead of admitting that you were wrong, you banned us. Simple as that. You weren’t the first, and you won’t be the last leftist to stifle opposing arguments because of your insecurities.

            If you banned all the people who acted like trolls in our interactions, you wouldn’t have any contributors to your blog, except us.

            And, yes, you do have the right to ban people. It’s stupid, lazy and cowardly, and it speaks very poorly of you, but you have the right to do so. Just as I have “the right” to call you all manner of horrible names — as your commenters do to me. It doesn’t make it right for me to do so, so I don’t. Again, none of this should be at all controversial.

          136. Let me ask you this simple, straightforward question, because nothing I say matters to you unless it’s in agreement with what you think.

            Do you think I and all other black people who discuss and/or fight white racism do so because we enjoy it?

          137. Also, why am I forced to accept your grievances, but you don’t want to so much as hear mine or those of black people who won’t tell you what you obviously want to hear?

          138. I have no grievances.

            I obviously, listen intently to all your grievances. You’ve even become quite exasperated at me because of the detailed responses I provide to your posts explaining your grievances.

            Best,

          139. And that’s the problem, YOU TELLING ME WHAT I SHOULD THINK OR FEEL. I know that’s not what you said, but if you can’t get the gist of that, oh well.

            Here’s the deal, you only care about black people if and when they agree with your fear-based thought process that says that racism isn’t a big issue for blacks but it’s more commonplace for whites. I DO NOT AGREE, BECAUSE I CAN’T AGREE WITH SOMETHING THAT JUST ISN’T TRUE. You may call me a coward for refusing to bend to your will, but I just see it as projection, accusing me of something you do, and you seem afraid to face the truth that racism against blacks is still a MAJOR THING. That’s why anything I bring to you to prove it is shot down by you. Nothing I can bring to the table will do. You’re simply afraid of facing the sad truth, so afraid that your fear trumps genuine concern for black people. It’s not me trying to read your mind as you WANT to think. It’s based on YOUR RESPONSES. So, if you don’t want me to think that way, I suggest you mind what you write.

          140. Almost forgot,

            I’m going to take a stab at how you became a conservative. You felt alone at some point in your life. You felt isolated, and somehow, someway you turned to the right.

            I also wager to guess that the switch was more emotional than political. If that’s the case, I’m sorry. Really, I am. But I’m here to let you know for the trillionth time that the right is not as anti-racist as you believe it to be. And no, the left is not less racist either, just in their own way.

            There is such a thing as being independent, something that even I need to realize. If you still choose to be with the right, it’s not siding less with truth, but siding more with bias. Not to say that there is no truth in the right let alone more truth in the left, BUT your beliefs in whom racism affects is more damaging than you want to admit, and if you REALLY care about black people, you would LISTEN to the DIVERSE voices and not ones by figures like Thomas Sowell, Armstrong Williams and Larry Elder to name a few.

            Or am I still wrong in your mind? If so, there’s nothing left to tell you.

          141. You said:
            You said: Almost forgot,

            You said: I’m going to take a stab at how you became a conservative. You felt alone at some point in your life. You felt isolated, and somehow, someway you turned to the right.

            My Response:
            Lol! Nope. Much more mundane than that. I was a default lefty, because I was brought up in Connecticut. I just studied and studied and studied, starting at a very early age. The more in-depth I got, the more obvious the bankruptcy of left-wing thinking became. I thought that I’d keep going, and somehow return to leftism, and that did happen! I continued on, as I still am, and found out one thing. Regardless of the validity of the thinking of the Left, they themselves are completely corrupt, and apparently incapable of telling the truth, of admitting where their thinking has weaknesses, where their thinking has failed in the past, or elsewhere. That has opened my eyes to both the thinking and the people of the Left.

            Next, though I certainly tried, I couldn’t defeat right-wing thinking with left-wing thinking! I was able to come to different conclusions from other Conservatives, but left-wing reasoning never even comes close to defeating right-wing thinking. Mind you, I wanted to defeat right-wing thinking with my then leftist thoughts, but I could never make it happen in my brain. That’ll happen to you too, if you keep at it.

            So, it was just good, hard, intellectual elbow grease that led me to Conservatism. And, of course, I’m still challenging my thinking. All of it.

            By the way, all that intellectual exercise led me to this post: https://praetori.wordpress.com/2013/04/12/the-stages-of-political-maturity/

            And this one: https://praetori.wordpress.com/2013/05/06/why-and-how-the-political-left-is-as-it-is/

            If you’re interested, that is.

            And, finally, I’ve never been lonely in my life. I was a professional athlete, and a model. I’ve had a very, very, very busy social life.

            My Response:
            Nope. It was neither political nor emotional, as mentioned above. The Right is about as anti-racist as I say it is, but that’s, I admit, a matter of opinion. However, it’s indisputable that the Right is way, way, way less racist than the Left. WAY less racist. Especially when you consider the fact that the racist RGI and BLM movements are of the Left.

            ——————————————————

            My Response:
            There is such a thing… that “independent” thing. However, whenever you scratch an independent — especially an RGI “independent,” — you come up with a leftist. I’d just ask you a couple of questions. You don’t have to answer these questions to me, by the way, just to yourself! (1) Would you vote for a Republican? (2) Would you vote for a Democrat? (3) Would you vote for a Socialist? (4) For whom do you usually vote? (5) Which, if any, of the following people provoke positive feelings in you: Donald Trump, Chuck Schumer, Paul Ryan, Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton, Gavin Newsom, Jerry Brown, Ronald Reagan?

            A Leftist is a person who (1) has very much left-wing thoughts or, more importantly, (2) whose actions, speech and voting patterns serve to favor Democrats, or to disfavor Republicans. I should clarify: Democrats are the politicasl wing of America’s Left, while Republicans are the political wing of the Right.

            Everything we do has a political effect. If the things that you do serve to make political life easier for the Democrats, and therefore the Left, then whether you like it or not, you’re a leftist. You may think that you don’t like the Democrats a whole lot, but if what you do serves their interests, then you’re a Leftist.

            Your blog, as entrenched as it is in the RGI, is a very left-wing blog… because the RGI is firmly ensconced on the political Left. They want all the goals that the Left wants: larger, more intrusive government, punitive taxes on the rich, higher taxes in general, abortion on demand, socialized medicine, Socialism in the future, and so forth… the entire left-wing project wish list.

            A quick point: BW, I listen to the voices of non-Conservative black commentators. I can’t avoid them. In order to find voices like the great Thomas Sowell, etc… I have to seek them out. The voices of non-Conservative black commentators is the default voice of the dominant media. The Sharptons, Jacksons, Lemons, Wests, Key and Peeles, Noahs, Waterses, Lewises, Cleavers, Jordans, Lees, etc… are the default voices of black America as far as the media are concerned. No Conservative can avoid non-Conservative voices! And, let’s not lose sight of the fact that the Sowells, Armstrong Williamses, et all are the voices of actual diversity.

            One more quick thing: Whenever you say something that you couldn’t possibly know, alarm bells should go off in your head. There’s no way you could ever possibly know to what voices I pay attention. You should never pretend that you do know such an unknowable thing.

            Also, if the white racism you claim to fight against doesn’t actually exist, then those who are fighting it are really harming themselves.

            White hostility to black Americans has arrived at such a low ebb, that any black American can, and should, simply shrug it off as a mere annoyance and go on with his life. This is demonstrable, and I’ve demonstrated it. Like me. I’ve been denied employment, housing and promotion because I’m either the wrong sex or the wrong skin color, and I’ve simply shrugged it off and found employment or housing elsewhere. These things happened when I had literally not a dime to my name. I got back up, and I worked hard to find something else.

            ——————————————————

            You said: Or am I still wrong in your mind? If so, there’s nothing left to tell you.

            My Response:
            There’s always something left to tell people, and especially me. 🙂 You were wrong a lot, but you’re a lot closer, and I have told you where you were wrong about me, even though that was largely irrelevant stuff. In other words, how I became a Conservative is utterly trivial to everyone in the world except me.

            BW, you seem like a good dude, whom I admire a lot. I’d love to buy you a drink. (But that would ruin my anonymity.) Suffice it to say, I’d enjoy conversing directly with you over the libations of our choice. Maybe one day that possibility will arise. Until then, though, I extend to you my warmest wishes for great happiness. I understand that you suffer from depression, and I’d like you to know that I pray for you every day; and that God will grant you peace and happiness every day, as well as the wisdom to hear, and listen to, His voice every day, and accept the gift of His love and peace.

      2. So, that’s what you’re going to latch onto, eh, the fact that I admitted that I’m a racist, and not wonder why and continue referencing me as a foot soldier to the RGI?

        You can’t teach me anything, because you’re unwilling to learn. Those who won’t learn, can’t teach.
