Dear black friends: I need you to respect what white America is feeling right now

Dear Black America,

It is somewhat strange to address this to you, given that I’ve been told my whole life that race is just a social construct or that, at most, it is no more than skin deep, and I have had little choice but to imbibe a good deal of your popular culture growing up. Yet today is another day you have forced me to decide who I identify with—and, as always when you force me—I fall decidedly on the side of “Western Civilization”.

Every comment or post I have read today voicing some version of disdain or indignation for anyone critical of the feral behavior on display in Baltimore—“You are perpetuating white supremacy” or “Your ability to ignore the real situation is a mark of your privilege” or “You can’t understand the internalized oppression people of color suffer” or “Racist cops!” or “whites have also rioted before”—tell me that your concerns do not extend beyond rationalizing and deflecting. I am not asking you to condone or agree with public order. You don’t have to say anything. Please just let me tell you what I see:

I see an unrestrained underclass incapable of building or maintaining a functioning society eagerly looting and pillaging that society on the flimsiest of pretexts

I see the consequences of a growing number of unskilled people in an American job market that increasingly has no use for them, consequences accentuated by uncontrolled immigration

I see disorganized, irresponsible mothers desperately trying to fill paternal roles they are incapable of adequately fulfilling on their own

I see the conflagration being kindled by an Establishment that presumes straight white men are explicitly guilty until proven innocent and implicitly guilty irrespective of the evidence

I see those flames of resentment being stoked by an Establishment that treats blacks who suffer at the hands of authority figures as sacred beings beyond reproach no matter how inappropriate, illegal, and dangerous the actions and behaviors leading to said suffering has been

I see the gross double standards for behavior that allow blacks to do and say with impunity things that cause whites who do and say the same things to be purged from their jobs and excommunicated from polite society

If you not looking at crime rates empirically, not engaging in candid conversations about human population differences, not paying attention to how blatantly false the official narratives so often are, then you are perpetuating vicious racial hatreds by blaming everything on white America. That Trayvon Martin was being punched by George Zimmerman, that Michael Brown had his hands up when he was shot, that excessive force was used to subdue Eric Garner, that Walter Scott was hunted down in cold blood, that a racist white cop is being charged with second-degree murder in the death of Eddie Gray are all perceptions that are both widely believed and demonstrably false. This mendacity affects lives every day. We would be prudent to consider it all the time rather than, say, none of the time.

According to the Cathedral’s doctrine of racism as white Original Sin, even if you have striven to cleanse yourself of your white privilege by partaking in self-flagellating acts of penance, voting for Barack Obama, emphasizing your Jewish heritage, and supporting perpetual wealth transfers from (other) whites to non-whites, you cannot escape the shade of your skin. Being a business managing, heterosexual, college-educated Midwestern white male from a middle class background places me near the bottom of the victimization pyramid. Quotas, PR departments, and PC etiquette dictate that despite being worse than useless when it comes to gaining anyone any points for diversity, I nonetheless be forever prepared to give and never to take. This necessarily gives me little recourse but to turn my back on a society that despises me when it’s not trying to despoil me.

For most of my childhood, I actively tried to keep race from being a defining factor in my social affairs. I find this an increasingly difficult position to maintain, given the reality of biological differences between people and, by extension, groups of people. Because I have to worry about my son’s safety or my wife’s well being if either of them find themselves among large numbers of blacks or in areas that are predominately black. Because people react to my sagacious, industrious, intelligent father differently, depending on whether they are aspiring entrepreneurs or parasitic bums. Race has come to influence the way I see the world because race has so much influence on how the world works.

Dude, nobody here is denying that racial differences exist. The only beef I have with the HBD/WN/MRA/PUA/"red pill" crowd is that they think that race and gender are the only human traits that matter.

They're wrong. In my opinion, individual IQ, regardless of race/gender matters more. Conscientiousness matters even more than IQ. Social class matters more than race/gender. Education level, income level, and family structure matter too. Maybe not more than race/gender, but they still matter.

The people who argue that only race and gender matter are just as delusional as the people who say that race/gender don't matter at all.

Well put. But no one is doing the hard work of uncovering the Agro-EBT Complex, whereby Encorpera makes obscene profits through the EBT market in poor neighborhoods. Basically we pay poor black women to produce children so they will receive public assistance which they spend on EBT foodstuffs at convenience stores and Walmart. It's the EBT Cycle. Those young black men rioting are simply unusable byproducts of the process. A sane society would cease paying black women to produce babies and give the money directly to the men to at least re-establish some semblance of a patriarchy.

I agree with the part about ending welfare for ghetto single mothers. I disagree with everything else you said.

Ending welfare for ghetto single mothers is important, not because they are black, female, or badly behaved. Ending welfare for ghetto single mothers is important because all welfare is evil. I hate the mofos who only want to end welfare when it goes to Black/Hispanic women. They don't get it. Welfare for anyone of any race/gender is going to destroy them. Welfare is like a drug. Once you're on it for long enough, you forget how to provide for yourself. Look at what welfare has done to lower class and lower middle class White families. Welfare and family breakdown is the reason why I have no respect for White proles. Giving welfare to Black men and White people is just as abhorrent as giving it to Black women.

"Continued dependence upon relief induces a spiritual disintegration fundamentally destructive to the national fiber. To dole our relief in this way is to administer a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit. It is inimical to the dictates of a sound policy."

Anon2,

I don't disagree re: the importance of conscientiousness, sociability, IQ, etc, vis a vis ancestry as such, especially in a free, individualistic place like the US. But this is a response to the Salon editorial, and I suspect the authoress would in fact take issue with your first sentence.

IQ isn't nearly that important. Women that pop out a little tard usually end up "accidently" leaving that tard in a hot car while they get their hair done.

It's the new White Man's Burden: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_White_Man's_Burden#Poem


Take up the White Man's burden And reap his old reward:
The blame of those ye better, The hate of those ye guard—
The cry of hosts ye humour (Ah, slowly!) toward the light:—
"Why brought he us from bondage, Our loved Egyptian night?"

Take up the White Man's burden, Ye dare not stoop to less—
Nor call too loud on Freedom To cloke your weariness;
By all ye cry or whisper, By all ye leave or do,
The silent, sullen peoples Shall weigh your gods and you.

Sorry to bother again,

one can sometimes read (but rarly) that northern blacks outscored southern whites on military IQ tests around WW1, do oyu know anything about this?

The blacks have never passed a test honestly. They are routinely given phony jobs and ranks in the military merely to keep Whites out of power. The state is weak, and dying.
