[Ethnic conflict] causes most of the world’s bloodshed. Americans seldom notice this. One reasons is that they are constantly told that diversity is a blissful state. But it isn’t. Consider: Catholics and Protestants in Ireland, Sunnis and Shia in many places, Jews and Moslems in Palestine, Hutus and Tutsis in Burundi, Hindus and Moslems in India and nearby, Tamils and Sinhalese in Sri Lanka, Chinese and Indonesians in Indonesia, French and Africans in Paris, and so on. The assertion that “diversity is our strength” seems an attempt to avoid realizing that it isn’t.
Racial and ethnic conflicts are cruel, often explosive, and irrational. They seldom make sense because the devastation and hideousness are disproportionate to the assigned causes. For example, the differences between Protestants and Catholics in Ireland are so slight as probably to be undetectable to you and me, yet the two fought murderously for years, blowing up pubs packed with members of the other faction.
In the American case, nice and good-hearted people will point out that blacks are warm and friendly people if they like you, immensely talented in this and that, have legitimate grievances’ against society, and so on. All true. And irrelevant. Similar things can be said about both sides in most ethnic conflicts. …
Blacks themselves are furious over being at the bottom of society, also with no prospects, a condition they blame, with encouragement from the media, on racism. If this were the case, it would be easy to correct.
They are suffering from the war the elite whites are waging on the deplorable whites:
Then, ominously, the imposition of black cultural norms on whites. America is being utterly remade to conform to the desires of blacks, this being pushed by people most of whom do not like blacks.
How many of them go to black ghettos to eat, or send their children to black urban schools? Rather the whites opposing “systemic racism” seethe with hostility to the deplorables, whom they detest, and want to shove blackness down their throats. In doing this they are threatening things dear to at least half of the white population: their culture, children, physical safety, and sense of propriety. This is not smart. …
Dumbing down white America, so black under-performance won’t be so obvious:
We are seeing a ferocious attack on the underpinnings of white European civilization , and for that matter of all actual civilizations. Japan, India, China, South Korea — none would buy into the enstupidation and degradation. Neither would Argentina or Mexico, which try to raise their cultural levels. Only America is on a downward path, in search of social justice.
Consider: Math curricula are being dumbed down because blacks do poorly at math, English grammar instruction eliminated because blacks can’t or won’t learn it, entrance exams for the elite and demanding high schools eliminated because blacks don’t pass them, SATs dropped because blacks score poorly on them, promotion exams in police departments eliminated because blacks don’t pass them. Entrance requirements at medical school are lowered because not enough blacks pass them, AP courses in high school eliminated because too few blacks get into them.
Dangerously, the government forbids white parents to have schools teaching what they regard as desirable material at what they regard as acceptable academic levels while requiring what they regard as civilized behavior. White parents are forced to see their children subjected to what they regard as obscene, semiliterate, violent, stupid, a culture dominated by what seems to them, (and would to any First World country) the opposite of cultivation. When parents whose daughter wants to go into electronic engineering see her forced into pseudo math taught by teachers who couldn’t recognize a partial derivative if it spoke to them in tongues, when she ought to be in AP calculus, they are not happy. But there is nothing they can do about it. Yet.
Imposing black intellectual standards on a country that sees itself in competition with disciplined, studious, bright, and exceedingly numerous Chinese engineers has obvious consequences that already make themselves felt. Much of the white population, aware of this, becomes angry and angrier.
The narrative people cannot abide IQ talk — those truths are beyond their pale:
The decline started perhaps when the Supreme Court disallowed the use of IQ tests by employers because blacks couldn’t pass them, and allowed affirmative action, racial discrimination against whites, because blacks couldn’t advance without it. This incapacity is the root of the racial problem. It cannot be solved, if it can be solved in any circumstances, in a politically chaotic and censored country that refuses to address it. Renaming buildings and toppling statutes will improve nothing while raising the level of anger among whites.
Not all of this degradation arises from the demands of blacks. The conversion of universities from scholarly enterprises into profit centers required the admission of huge cohorts of students neither intellectually or culturally suited to higher education. These, like blacks, have neither the interest nor capacity for genuine schooling. America’s characteristic anti-intellectualism and resentment of superiority plays a part. The argument for it is embodied in the semi-literate gibberish of education majors who themselves are unsuited for schooling. But blacks have provided the throw-weight for the promulgation of peasantry. Pampered white rabble have found that they can force elimination of virtually anything they don’t like by calling it racist.
The renaming of streets and buildings, the toppling of statues, the near worship of a negligible armed robber and semi-derelict, the renaming of military bases in narcissistic self-abnegation are winding a spring. It is dangerous that those angrily promoting the appeasement, the media, the talking heads in New York, do not see the advancing fury. These people, substantially congruent with the coastal elites, elected Trump by being contemptuous of Middle America and blandly unaware of the brewing storm. They are doing it again. …
The appeasement of blacks, fear that they might riot, runs through society. Increasingly, jurisdictions simply give up on enforcing the law. Cities like Chicago and New York have abolished cash bail to that criminals immediately go free, and immediately often offend again. Baltimore and Chicago no longer prosecute minor offenses such as prostitution and urinating in public. San Francisco has made shoplifting of goods worth less than $950 a misdemeanor, the shoplifters not being Asians, with the result that to this date seventeen Walgreens have closed. Cities stop prosecuting the jumping of subway turnstiles as this is done only by blacks and Hispanics. The latter won’t riot. The former will, and governments know it. When blacks very often racially attack whites, the media suppress the story. There are many, many of these attacks, covered briefly in local media but ignored by the majors, caught on video that circulates widely online.
Herein lies a great peril. Blacks are accustomed to getting anything they want and growing confident, expect whites forever to back away. Perhaps, living in concentrated ghettos, not reading, poorly educated, they do not realize the certain outcome of an actual war. They are fed by white farmers from afar, heavily outnumbered, with electricity dependent on fuel supplies from sources run by whites. …
Egged on by ideological-blinded whites:
Government and the media hide what is going on. In crime stories they increasingly do not publish the race or photo of perpetrators. This, they say, would perpetuate stereotypes, as indeed it would. Stereotypes are the aggregate observations of many people over time and are almost always accurate.
But there is another, and worse, pattern. For example, when a black was shot in Ferguson, black witnesses lied, saying that he had his hands up and said, “Don’t shoot!” The media bought this and propagated it. They invariably go for the bad-white-innocent-blacks narrative and ghetto blacks, who don’t, and often cannot read, believe it and understandably become enraged. An uprising follows. …
There is no solution without major change:
Unfortunately nothing can be done. Anything that might work is politically impossible, and anything that is politically possible won’t work.
Cosmetics, moral preening, lowering of standards, party politics — none of these will fix the country. In calmer times, saner heads might prevail. Partial alleviation might be achieved by allowing, or encouraging, voluntary segregation, taking white police out of black neighborhoods, letting black neighborhoods decide what laws to enforce within their own boundaries, letting the races decide for themselves what to teach their children, and to the extent possible allowing racial autonomy. Instead, the elites will double down on what isn’t working and nothing will get better, except the monthly sales at gun shops.
Sad. People need to figure this out, and find an acceptable solution for everyone. Maybe it’s a test.
