Now that every month is Black History Month, it seems superfluous to focus on this topic with special intensity in February. Don’t forget, we get to do this all over again in March for women.
There is an alarming increase in open racism in America’s educational system and corporate boardrooms (a synergistic duopoly that degrades American civilization). Some of these stories and blogs have received national attention. We reassure each other, saying, “This time the leftists have gone too far. This time the moderate centrists will finally reject the radical left and join the nearest GOP committee!” This is the unicorn that never appears – and besides, there will never be another fair election again.
There is so much information about black-on-white and black-on-Asian crime that is being suppressed by mainstream media, that in order to be fully informed, I find myself reading certain websites on the far-right that tend to attract a mostly anti-Semitic crowd. The problem is that there seem to be very few news sources and opinion sources that sincerely believe that all lives matter, and are willing to shout it out loud and make some people angry. On the mainstream left, whites must apologize for their “privilege”; on the kook right, blacks should be sent to Africa, with or without their consent.
I hope you recall my discussing culture, race, and the rules of this blog: https://surakblog.wordpress.com/2020/08/10/culture-race-and-the-rules-of-this-blog/
I insist that I will judge every individual by the content of his or her character, not by innate physical characteristics like race or sex. I am much closer, in my mind, to conservative traditionalists of different races and religions than I am to leftists of my own race and religion.
Nevertheless, I am not ignorant of group averages. I am informed daily that the unique crisis facing this planet is that America is the most racist country ever to exist (yes, Virginia, global warming is racist), that paradise on earth would result from ending this “literally” “genocidal” attitude, and that to end this attitude, one must act in the most disgustingly racist way towards whites. This would have been a loathsome conclusion to the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
When I read such proclamations, and hear my colleagues proudly announce segregated student clubs and racial quotas in academic programs and hiring, I examine data. I present data for your consideration.
Below is a graph of homicides in the USA reported to the FBI, in which the race of the perpetrator was identified. On average, blacks committed about 37% of homicides. Given that blacks constitute about 13% of the population, this yields an odds ratio of about 4:1; that is, a black American is about 4 times as likely to commit a homicide as a non-black American.
Next is a graph of unemployment in the USA, broken out into black unemployment compared with non-black unemployment. Here the average (geometric mean) ratio is about 2.1:1; that is, a black American in the labor force is about 2.1 times as likely to be unemployed as a non-black American in the labor force.
Last is a graph showing the results of exit polls from the 2020 presidential election, showing the respective share of the popular vote for Biden and for Trump among black Americans and non-black Americans. The black vote caused a 10-point swing in the popular vote, and most likely a much larger swing in the Electoral College. Now America is reaping the “benefits” of more illegal aliens, construction project shutdowns, and general lockdowns, which will hurt racial minorities more than whites.
I have taught first-generation immigrants from Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America. They are often ferociously motivated to learn English, to follow the law, to educate themselves, to work hard, and to love the country that took them in. Their skin color is completely irrelevant. They will make great Americans – until the American school system gets hold of their children and brainwashes them into total race consciousness. Alas, it is tremendously disappointing that the Blexit movement of Ms. Candace Owens was not more successful.
I watched Sean Hannity’s TV show for the first time in a few years on the night of Rush Limbaugh’s death. He made an impassioned call for the renewal of the type of “opportunity society” I associate with Jack Kemp: the culmination of a glorious color-blind end-of-history paradise by reducing marginal tax rates and regulations. This is that for which the patriots of 1776 bled and died… not! Although the motivation is sound (reducing the size of government), this is thin gruel to appeal to blacks, or to whites for that matter.
People are passionately attached to their society, to their culture. The only way to reconcile blacks to the rest of America, in my opinion, is to end Black History Month. Leave skin color behind and become un-hyphenated Americans. I have ended relations with family members due to their accusations of “white privilege”. This and the insane transgender agenda are powerful enough catalysts to break up America. Consider this to be a warning: let those with ears hear!
