The Atlantic slave trade was abolished more than a century and a half ago; Jim Crow laws were abolished more than half a century ago; South African apartheid was abolished more than twenty years ago. Presumably if white people were “supreme” in America, then they (we) would have been able to hold back SOME of the steady, more than century-long dismantling of these institutions. Some “supreme” race! But they (we) COULD be! After all, white people are STILL by very far, the largest demographic in America… I guess they (we) just don’t want to. Continue reading White Supremacy? There’s No Such Thing.
Here are some basic truths about racism. They’re much overlooked, but they remain as true as ever. It’s just as … Continue reading Simple Racism Truths
Don’t believe me? Go to a Black Lives Matter rally, and try to suggest to someone there that, say, all lives matter. Shouldn’t be controversial, right? However, the snarling, sneering, violent hostility that you’ll encounter in reaction to that brief, unsubtly obvious assertion will rock you back on your heels. All the leading candidates for the Democrat Party Presidential nomination agreed — either reluctantly or enthusiastically — that one shouldn’t say, “All lives matter.” In other words, one of America’s two major political parties does not endorse the notion that “all American lives matter.” Continue reading Black Lives Matter? Yep. White Lives Don’t.
First: a rather lengthy bit of background: A few posts ago, Brothawolf and I had an interaction in which he alleged that I censored one of his posts. I did not do that. I have the contents of the post to which he’s referring, because he re-posted it on his own blog, after having claimed that we’d censored it on ours. To repeat: it never arrived here. Therefore, I have to conclude that it was really a cheap attempt by Brothawolf to manufacture a wrong done to him that was not actually done. Continue reading Response to Brothawolf
We white people do have a continuing debt to Black Americans. It’s no longer a monetary debt; that’s been covered in full, and them some. And it certainly didn’t do them any good. But it could have. And it was what they, the ones on the left that is, demanded. What we did wrong was to allow only the left to speak for Black Americans. If we’d allowed the right to speak for Black Americans too, we’d have had some real policies that would have done real good. As Chief Justice John Roberts said once, “The way to stop discriminating by race is to stop discriminating by race.” The solution from the right would have been simple and effective: “Stop discriminating by race.” Continue reading More VERY Blunt Perspectives About Race (Part II)
For black couples, who have a kid — two-parent households — the poverty rate is seven percent. For all people, of those who (1) graduate from high school, (2) don’t have a child out of wedlock, and (3) get a job, the poverty rate is less than two percent. That’s it. If you start from that basis, you have a greater than 98% chance of never being poor in America! Continue reading Black Americans: Do You Want To Prosper in America Today? (Part II)
Bottom Line: Brothawolf has responded (to this essay). As one would expect, he proved that he didn’t understand a thing in … Continue reading The Racists Strike Back!
