Days Black People Not Re-Enslaved By Trump

Economic "Privilege" is not "White Privilege"

So this AM I was listening to the Steve Harvey show. This is a rare event. My iPod was dead so radio or road noise. So this woman calls in to talk about how when she moved to California she realized that "White privilege is real." I awaited to hear what event(s) transpired to make this woman come to this conclusion. Her example was that at a prestigious firm she worked for, she overheard an apparently very wealthy white man tell someone that he gave his son an option. He could use the college fund money for college or to fund a movie.

Chick was shocked that he could offer his child such an option.

That is NOT White privilege. That is economic privilege. There are many black millionaires who can make the same offer to any of their offspring if they so choose. Do you think that Oprah Winfrey's kid, if she had any, would be hurting for cash? Is Oprah white now?

P-Diddy, who's black the last time I saw, gave his son a Bentley for his birthday

Do you think P-Diddly's son is hurting for cash or doesn't have options?

This is what happens when black people buy into "White (Life is a crystal stair) Privilege" nonsense. Too many black people think that white people simply have shit fall into their laps, just because Less Melanin(tm). There is no doubt that a country with a majority white population is going to be geared to that population. There is no doubt that people tend to stick to their own. But that shit happens in China, Japan and Africa. Matter of fact, it's so bad in Africa that you gotta be the right kind of black (read tribalism) to get favors and "better" treatment.

For any and all racism I've experienced (and will experience), I'm way better off than the numbers of white homeless people I run by while I vacation in Miami Beach. My net worth is above the average of most white people in America and I'm black. Very much so thank you very much.

Too many black people like and live off seeing themselves of total victims. I don't. I see my circumstances as exponentially and logarithmically better than any of my ancestors who disembarked slave ships or lived under colonialism. I keep stuff in perspective. A lot of what black people THINK is white privilege is nothing but class differences. And to be frank, I don't hate on people who worked their asses off so that their kids can have options they didn't have (or did have and want to preserve).

And Y'all Are Still Talking About Pyramids

One of the things that happen when black folks get "conscious" is that they get Pyramid Struck(tm). Pyramid Struck is when, in order to boost one's self esteem in regards to race, you point out, at every moment possible that "we built pyramids!" Ahh, to bask in the knowledge that ones ancestors built admittedly impressive monuments that showed knowledge of mathematics and astronomy (some of these are in fact aligned with known stellar phenomenon). But the problem with being Pyramid Struck is that you're talking about something that happened back in 4000-2000BCE. This is 2017 CE. What. Have. You. Done. Recently?

I had been thinking of this phenomenon as I drove across a bridge and observed the replacement bridge being built along side it. I thought of all the knowledge and technological knowhow that goes into planning, constructing and maintaining a bridge of that magnitude. Today I saw a video on rebuilding an old automatic transmission as seen here:

Look at all those pieces. Now Mr. or Mrs. Pyramid Struck(tm) where is the African designed and built automatic transmission? Where's it at? It's time for black folks to stop being Pyramid Struck and start thinking as Garvey said: Anything any man has done you can do also. But if you don't (or can't) do so, then don't be surprised (or even mad) when people look down at you.

Wyclef Whines as Police Do Their Jobs

Here's Wyclef:
"I have family on both sides of the lens but I got a chance to see what happens with a citizen versus a police firsthand, and I have to tell you, I was scared for my life to the point where I could have acted different. And if acted different, something else would have happened to me," Jean told ABC News' "Good Morning America.”
I suppose LAPD is no better than TonTon Macoute.

But lets be real here. Wyclef is being a dramatic B.I.T.C.H. looking for drama and the press has given him a platform for his hysterics.

Lets look at the report to see why any sane reporter should have challenged Mr Jean on his drama-queen behavior.

The episode started just after 1 a.m. Pacific time, when deputies were investigating a report that a man and a woman had been robbed at gunpoint and beaten at a Sunset Boulevard intersection.
So the police got a call about a violent crime featuring a use of a firearm. So this is not a speeding ticket. This isn't expired registration. This isn't broken taillight. This is a looking for an armed suspect.
Sgt. Duncan said in a telephone interview that the suspect was described as a black man with a dark hoodie who fled in a gold or tan Toyota.
Unfortunately a typical description of perps of violent crimes in urban areas. Don't hate me, hate the statistics. Wyclef needs to be MAD as hell about those statistics! Now we know that the police are looking for a black male in a hoodie, in a Toyota.
deputies pulled over a vehicle matching that description driven by a woman with a male passenger. When the man, who later turned out to be Mr. Jean, was seen wearing a red bandana, the victims, contacted by radio, said that the suspect had also been wearing one, Sgt. Duncan said.
So police stopped a vehicle that matched the one seen at the alleged crime scene. With two passengers, which fits the profile, dressed in a manner that matches what the police were told.

How is this "profiling"? It isn't. It's called police work.

Mr. Jean and the woman were told to get out of the car, and Mr. Jean was handcuffed and detained, Sgt. Duncan said. They were released when the victims said there was no female in the getaway car, and the three deputies and the sergeant at the location with Mr. Jean were also informed that the real suspect had been arrested elsewhere.
The police had no choice but to behave as if the person they had stopped was the suspect. This means taking control of the situation and making sure that the suspect, believed to be armed, cannot draw their weapon. This means handcuffs. No it's not a nice thing to have happen. But that is what police do to protect themselves against criminals who may intend to kill them.

Also of note, the "real" suspects were arrested not that far away from Wyclef. Which means that the police were doing their jobs in stopping vehicles that matched what they were told rather than some made up excuse to harass Mr. Jean.

Mr. Jean’s first tweet was posted at 4 a.m. Eastern, and was followed by a series of them describing what happened. Around 9 a.m., he summed up, “I was asked by the police to put my hands up. Then I was told do not move. I was instantly hand cuffed before being asked to identify myself.”
Because police should do policing according to the policing expertise of Wyclef Jean.

Right.

Mr. Jean’s descriptions about what happened to him were circulated on Twitter, with some remarking that it was an example of how quickly black men are treated as suspects in their encounters with law enforcement officers.
Except of course the suspects were in fact black and therefore the police actions were completely justified.

When is the media going to stop giving crybaby drama queen attention whore black folks platforms for their nonsense?

Pat Buchanan on RussiaGate

Pat Buchanan asks the same questions I did in regards to the hearings:
How could DNI Director Clapper and CIA Director Morell say that no connection had been established between Trump’s campaign and the Russians, without there having been an investigation? And how could such an investigation be conclusive in exonerating Trump’s associateswithout some use of electronic surveillance?[ my underlines]
This is the first thing I thought. They've been investigating Trump and co since July of 2016 and there wasn't any electronic surveillance of ANY KIND?
More questions arise. If, in its investigation of the Russian hacking and a Trump connection, the FBI did receive the fruits of some electronic surveillance of the Trump campaign, were Attorney General Loretta Lynch, White House aides or President Obama made aware of any such surveillance? Did any give a go-ahead to surveil the Trump associates? Comey would neither confirm nor deny that they did.
Comey would neither confirm or deny. This is spook speak for "yeah we do but we cannot say due to legal issues". Comey was at other times willing to confirm or deny items. Therefor the ONLY reason to not confirm or deny something is because it IS the case (or NOT the case if that is relevant).
Again, the only known crimes committed by Americans during and after the campaign are the leaks of security secrets by agents of the intel community, colluding with the Fourth Estate, which uses the First Amendment to provide cover for criminal sources, whom they hail as “whistleblowers.”

Indeed, if there was no surveillance of Trump of any kind, where did all these stories come from, which their reporters attributed to “intelligence sources”?

Now I've seen these reports in various media outlets. They specifically mention FISA warrants and the like. Were these warrants asked about at any time?

Side note, you have noticed that even though the following has been said:

“On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke, but there is no fire, at all. … There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark. And there’s a lot of people looking for it.”
Why are we still seeing "Russia ties and Russia hacks" new leads?

Who's Missing

On occasion I get to look at the winners of various IQ dependent contests and note who is present and who is absent. For your consideration Pwn to Own:
Stills:

Remember IQ doesn't exist and Asians definitely do not [generally] outscore everyone else. It's all racist hokum meant to keep the black man down 'cause the black man can't afford computers and schools suck.

How Come You Ain’t Never Liked Me?

So I had the pleasure, extreme pleasure of watching Denzel and Viola do their thing in Fences. I personally think this was his best performance since Training Day. Yes, I know people think that Malcolm X was the highlight of Washington's career but I disagree. Now The Book of Eli was also a good Denzel film but this Fences was, in my opinion, Denzel's best performance. But this isn't an ode to Denzel. Rather the point of this post is a very poignant scene between Troy and his son which I think is relevant to black people today:
Cory: How come you ain’t never liked me?

Troy: Liked you? Who the hell say I got to like you? What law is there say I got to like you? Wanna stand up in my face and ask a damn fool ass question like that. Talking about liking somebody. Come here boy, when I talk to you. .. Straighten up dammit! I asked you a question… what law is there say I got to like you?

Cory: None.

Troy: Well, all right then! Don’t you eat every day? (Pause) Answer me when I talk to you! Don’t you eat every day?

Cory: Yeah

Troy: Nigga, as long as you in my house, you put that sir on the end of it when you talk to me!

Cory: Yes…sir

Troy: You eat every day.

Cory: Yessir!

Troy: You got clothes on your back.

Cory: Yessir.

Troy: Why you think that is?

Cory: Cause of you.

Troy: Ah, hell I know its cause of me… but why do you think that is?

Cory (hesitant): Cause you like me.

Troy: like you? I go out of here every morning… bust my butt putting up with them crackers everyday… ‘cause I like you? You about the biggest fool I ever saw.

(Pause)

It’s my job, it’s my responsibility! You understand that? A man got to take care of his family. You live in my house, sleep on my bedclothes, fill your belly up on my food… cause you my son. You my flesh and blood. Not cause I like you! Cause it’s my duty to take care of you. I owe a responsibility to you! Let’s get this straight here, before it go along any further… I ain’t got to like you. Mr. Rand don’t give me my money come payday ‘cause he likes me. He gives me ‘cause he owes me. I done given you everything I had to give you. I gave you your life! Me and your mama worked that out between us. And liking your black ass wasn’t part of the bargain. Don’t you try and go through life worrying about if somebody like you or not. You best be making sure they doing right by you. You understand what I’m saying boy?

Cory: Yessir[My underlines]

This dialog just hit me. I see black people wandering around the US wanting to be liked. They think people need to do shit for them because they like them. And so if people are not doing shit for them, then they must not like them. I've said it many times here, that black people are seen as and treated as children. Just like Corey. Liberal white folk think it's their job to clothe us, feed us and put roofs over our heads. Indeed since most of our children are not even in homes with their fathers, the white man, in the form of the government, is The Man of the house in many of our homes.

Too many people out here trying to be liked. So busy trying to be liked that they are getting taken advantage of by folks smiling in their faces.

The Only Question That Needs Asking

Many people do not understand how a "pro black" Garveyite would be posting against BLM and things such as that. It's quite simple: Africa for the African, Asia for the Asian and Europe for the European. Simple. You should be comfortable and safe in your own homeland. Thus for anyone running around with Red Black and Green needs to be able to answer the following question:

Is the caption above acceptable?

The only answer appropriate to anyone claiming Red Black and Green, is "NO". No Swede should be unsafe in any part of his country. No invader should be able to make a native feel unsafe in his country. Just as we, actual pro-black people do not care for or excuse colonialism and it's alienation and exploitation of the native in Africa, it is equally unacceptable to run into someone elses land and impose oneself on that population.

Full stop.

Any other answer is a function of ego and revenge fantasies. Neither of these things creates industry, feeds families and any other thing necessary for long term sustenance of black communities. It's that simple.

No Law That Needs Respecting

The time has come. Maybe even past due. Let me rewind first. In the infamous Dredd Scott decision the Supreme Court ruled that black people have no rights that white men (people) were bound to respect. Today Dredd Scott has been returned in whiteface. Today the American citizen has no rights that non-citizens are bound to respect. Let me repeat this:

The American citizen has no rights that a non-citizen is bound to respect.

Indeed not only do non-citizens have to abide by the law that is dutifully and zealously enforced against citizens but the ruling elites and their "judges" are in plain view in their seditious and treasonous activities because they are certain that there are no consequences for their behavior. With their gated communities, secret entrances and security personnel and technology along with the general law abiding nature of the very citizen they shit on, they do not fear the warranted exacting of justice that their treason calls for. As they say, incentives drive behavior. In the past, judges that made the kinds of decisions such as the ones we witnessed yesterday would have feared for their jobs if not their very lives. Today, insulated from such direct consequences, the "judges" of the day have free reign to willfully commit treason. And be clear. Treason is exactly what we are seeing. Bold and unfiltered.

Trump's first travel ban was unlawfully blocked. I have already explained why in a previous post so I wont go into it again. Trump then revised the ban in order to comply with the ludicrous and wholly unconstitutional reasons given for the blocking of his original ban. Yet another set of "judges" decided that this "made for compliance" ban was also "unconstitutional". Herein shows why we are supposed to be a country of laws and not of men. It simply should not be possible for a executive order that is made in compliance with relevant congressional law to be blocked by a judge AND then again when the so-called "unlawful parts" are modified to address the alleged illegality. What this shows is that the bans have nothing to do with law but with the whims and caprices of whoever is looking at the order. This is law by man.

Under the law, the best any of these judges could have done is said that they strongly oppose the ideology that Trump has in regards to Muslims or whomever but that the law is very clear (and it is) as to the powers given to the executive (and notice I say executive not Trump) to determine who may or may not enter the country for whatever reason. And that if the people don't like the law then they should get their representatives to pass another law to address their concerns. That is how the US democracy [is supposed] to work.

The current situation is kind of like video games from back in the day where if you made a mistake you were forced to go back and play from the last checkpoint. A frustrating experience to be sure but those were the rules. Of course since players are impatient, game developers had to make it so that you could save any point in the game so that if you died due to a mistake you could just pick up from the last save point, which was usually much closer to point of death and not have to play through stuff you already mastered.

Similarly these people don't want to trudge through the long democratic process and risk losing and having to go through all that again. So better to get to the last save point via a judge willing to be treasonous and keep having a go at the boss until they win.

Back to the matter at hand though. You'll note that these judges and indeed the people who support them simply do not believe that the US is a sovereign nation that can include and exclude whomever. Indeed they do not see the US as they see their own private property (or leased). This is the fundamental problem. The disconnect if you will.

The United States was founded on the Blackstonian idea of limited government, protections of the individual citizen against the power of the state and the principle of a man's house as his castle. I have found that liberals are either unfamiliar with Blackstone or English common law (a total failure of the educational system) and therefore do not understand the nature of nationalism (or if they do, they simply do not care...to a point).

Simply stated, the English idea was that a man's castle was his. His rules apply in his house and the state couldn't just barge in there and do whatever it wanted.

A community is a collection of men's castles. On the community level, no outsider can just walk in and do whatever they pleased. If one entered a community and offended the locals in some way, they could remove you and you have no appeal. While these communities generally had customs regarding strangers, strangers could not expect to change the fundamental cultures and folkways of that community. If they didn't like it, they could leave. Bye.

You'll note that this collection of communities only works if they share a common set of values and customs. All throughout human history, wherever a community diverges in customs and values, they split apart and form new communities.

A nation is a collection of communities which are collections of men's castles. Same rules apply simply on a larger geographic area. Again it must be understood that a nation has a set of values and customs that grow out of the communities that make it up. A nation cannot long exist where it's communities are fractured, with different values and customs and competing for national dominance.

What liberals are doing is saying that the national castle doesn't exist. At the same time, if you tried to impose yourself on a liberal's individual castle you would likely find yourself arrested. Hence they have not made the connection between the nation as a greater community that is an expression of the "castles" within. Worse, though is that now the liberal sees itself as separate from or worse should dominate the "not liberal".

Judges are supposed to be neutral agents in these conflicts. They are not supposed to be swayed by the why a law was passed and "intent" comes to play only when the letter of the law is in serious dispute. For example, speed limits on highways were imposed in the US for reasons of reducing gasoline consumption in response to the Arab oil embargo. Now states will claim that these limits are for safety. Can you imagine going to court to argue against a speeding ticket by stating that the "intent" of the law was for consumption and since my car gets xMPG relative to whatever the MPG was at the time of the passage of speed limits, that the ticket should be thrown out?

Me neither.

Do you even think you could make a safety argument like since the vehicle you are driving is 5x safer than when speed limits were imposed, that the safety argument is moot. Besides you had your seatbelt on, were indicating when changing lanes, and generally going with the speed of traffic so what was the safety hazard?

No, me neither.

Yet a "judge" decided to block a lawful executive order because of something Trump and/or his staffers said. This is what passes for jurisprudence these days? There is a saying that (paraphrasing) where justice is not evenly applied, the law abiding see no benefit in being so.

And understand that we are currently in a low level civil war. States that are outright saying they will not cooperate with the federal government are in open rebellion. No different than 1861. Understand that the violence visited upon "non-liberals" at various institutions of "higher education" are the shots fired. The only question now is whether the troops are going to be deployed to "save the Union".

Sessions has the AG job. It's time he stop pandering to them and blathering about Russia and wiretaps and get to work.

As I said, Adults Not Running Things At University

The Federalist has a good rundown of the events at Middlebury. I would end up quoting the entire article as it underlines my previous commentary that university officials have essentially stopped running the show at universities. I will however point out one thing:
I assume the students who physically assaulted Stanger will be met with some kind of punishment, though it is hard to see that anything other than permanent expulsion would convey the right message. Be that as it may, the problem remains with the hundreds of students who gleefully ignored the college’s strictures on demonstrations and protests. The number is so large as to make the imposition of significant sanctions impossible. The better course is probably to impose that sanction on the administrator or administrators who allowed the situation to veer out of control. The next time a Middlebury president is faced with such a situation, he or she might have greater presence of mind.
This is the "too many illegal immigrants to deport" argument. I don't buy it for illegal immigrants and I don't buy it for these "students". I put students in quotes because if universities are not breaking them of their anti-intellectualism, then they are not teaching, they are indoctrinating. It is of paramount importance that the administration make full examples of every student that can be identified. At a minimum they should be suspended with anyone involved in the assault permanently expelled with all loans due immediately with extortionate rates of interest. OK. Maybe that's extra but it should be clear to all prospective students parents that if their kid does this bullshit, it will cost them dearly

I know that the fear of losing potential future students motivates many administrators and trustees to allow this nonsense but believe me, there are more students and parents willing to have a safe, rule enforced environment for their children than are given public/media attention.

That suspensions and expulsions have not happened (or at least been publicized) shows that these colleges and universities still don't get it and it will not be long before the "deplorables" on campus will not allow themselves to be assaulted without response. When this occurs there will be massive lawsuits that the universities (and govt if publicly owned) will lose for they are establishing a pattern of neglect for the safety of students and faculty.

RE: Race and Wrongful Convictions in the United States

So I ran across this report this morning and had to discuss it because I'm certain it will show up on the left as "proof" of systemic bias against African-Americans by the justice [sic] system. lets get at it:
African Americans are only 13% of the American population but a majority of innocent defendants wrongfully convicted of crimes and later exonerated. They constitute 47% of the 1,900 exonerations listed in the National Registry of Exonerations (as of October 2016), and the great majority of more than 1,800 additional innocent defendants who were framed and convicted of crimes in 15 large-scale police scandals and later cleared in “group exonerations.”
This is the great liberal "population demographic" argument. Since black people are 13% of the population they must be 13% of everything else, except where they are entertainers, where they should be well overrepresented. What this opener conveniently leaves out is that while African-Americans are 13% of the population they commit on average 7X the amount of murders than the white population. You would think that if one were to discuss the criminal justice system in any honest manner you would be sure to point out all relevant data.

Now knowing that African-Americans commit 7X the amounts of simple murder lets look at their next statement that 47% of 1,900 exonerations listed in the National Registry of Exonerations are African-American. 47% of 1900 is 893 persons. How far back does this registry go back? It goes back to 1989. That's 28 years. that's 31 persons per year. While that is certainly 31 more people than should be wrongfully convicted (per year), it pales in comparison to those who have been arrested for ONLY murder and ONLY in NY City where in ONLY 2015 59% of 306 persons (180) arrested for murder were black. For whites it's 6.8% or 18. Eight.
Teen. Since Blacks commit FAAAAAR more violent crimes than whites, particularly in large cities is it in any way surprising that when wrongful convictions occur that blacks would be overrepresented relative to their US population demographics? No. Not at all, except for people who don't know this.

Going back to the paper:

Judging from exonerations, innocent black people are about seven times more likely to be convicted of murder than innocent white people. A major cause of the high number of black murder exonerations is the high homicide rate in the black community—a tragedy that kills many African Americans and sends many others to prison. Innocent defendants who are falsely convicted and exonerated do not contribute to this high homicide rate. They— like the families of victims who are killed—are deeply harmed by murders committed by others.
Well, 7x eh? I wonder why? Oh wait, discussed above.

African-American prisoners who are convicted of murder are about 50% more likely to be innocent than other convicted murderers. Part of that disparity is tied to the race of the victim. African Americans imprisoned for murder are more likely to be innocent if they were convicted of killing white victims. Only about 15% of murders by African Americans have white victims, but 31% of innocent African-American murder exonerees were convicted of killing white people.
It's almost like whites don't care for people who kill their people. Shocking. But another thing we should note is that when interracial murder happens it is overwhelmingly black on white rather than the other way around. And given the OJ Simpson fiasco I would use the term "innocent" very carefully. Under US law a defendant has the presumption of innocence. The state must prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt. Failure to do so results in a "not guilty" determination. All that means, legally is that the state did not meet its burden, it doesn't mean that the defendant did not commit the crime. Nor does it mean that the defendant was not involved in the crime. A defendant may well have been involved in the crime but the state was unable to prove he (or she) "was the trigger man" due to lack of evidence.

Thus it is improper for the authors to behave as if these exoneration statistics are evidence of targeting of black people for charges rather than innocent people caught up in high crime areas due to the criminal activities of their peers and neighbors.

Most wrongful convictions are never discovered. We have no direct measure of the number of all convictions of innocent murder defendants, but our best estimate suggests that they outnumber those we know about many times over. Judging from exonerations, half of those innocent murder defendants are African Americans.
While I'm certain that most wrongful convictions are never discovered, kinda like male victims of domestic violence, it is pure speculation on the part of the authors to suggest that it is "many times". What the authors are attempting to do is cast doubt on the entirety of the justice system by implying that a statistically large number of people are wrongly convicted. As shown above, the data simply doesn't support such a contention. Even if the numbers were off by an order of magnitude, it would STILL pale in comparison to those properly arrested and convicted for crimes.
Assaults on white women by African-American men are a small minority of all sexual assaults in the United States, but they constitute half of sexual assaults with eyewitness misidentifications that led to exoneration. (The unreliability of cross-racial eyewitness identification also appears to have contributed to racial disparities in false convictions for other crimes, but to a lesser extent.)
Again, like murder, rape is largely an intra-racial affair. However as data shows, when inter racial rape occurs, it is overwhelmingly black male as perpetrator. Going back to the NYPD stats, we see that whites were 18% of rape victims. However whites were only suspects 9.4% of the time and arrested 6.8 percent of the time. If only half the suspects of white rape victims are white, then who represents the other half? Non-whites of course. Half of the rapists of white women are non-white? That's rather large!

Lastly the drug portion of the report contains a statement I find highly suspect:

In Harris County, Texas, however, there have been 133 exonerations in ordinary drug possession cases in the last few years. These are cases in which defendants pled guilty, and were exonerated after routine lab tests showed they were not carrying illegal drugs.
How would a lab test show that a person was not carrying illegal drugs? A lab test can show that someone did or did not have a drug in their system but at the point of arrest a person either had drugs on their person or in the property that they were arrested in. There is no "lab test" that can determine that a bag of weed was on the floor or on a couch.

it is clear that this report is front loaded with assumptions and presumptions about black people (perpetual victims) and the police (malevolent enforcers of racist laws). If they were interested in actual justice, meaning convictions for those who commit the crimes and predate on other black people as well as exonerating those wrongfully caught up in enforcement policies, they would not hide the crime data from the reader.

Sedition

Why is a foreign paper promoting "resistance" to legitimate presidential authority? It's one thing to report on "resistance" but entirely different to promote it. If this was say Russia Today, and the paper was supporting US citizens to resist Obama (or any other Democrat) would we not be talking about "interference" by a foreign power? Yes, I know, First Amendment, but still.

Of Slavers and Cayotes

So Ben Carson spoke and caused a storm by referring to slaves as immigrants. In a strict "movement of people" sense it's not a completely wrong statements. But the problem is the larger conflation of people movements into the US and the social and political legacies of those movements.

I have long argued that it is a mistake, historically and politically to conflate the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade (henceforth referred to as the Maafa) with any other concurrent and subsequent movement of peoples into the United States. The Maafa stands alone in US history as the movement of people as literal property from one geographic location to the US, with the stipulation that offspring of said property (odd thing that property could reproduce...)could maintain the status as property. Other groups that were brought to the US, even those who were indentured servants and treated in the same manner as African slaves (due exception for children), were voluntary.

Furthermore, while persons who came to the US long after slavery was legally done with, came, voluntarily and retained relative advantages of not being Black and subject to the various laws that marginalized black citizens. For those who don't understand, this is where the "white privilege" argument comes from. There may indeed have been "No Irish" and whathaveyou signs and social policies in place against various non-black new arrivals, but when it came down to it, the Irish, etc. "became" white in the social racial hierarchy just as how in states like Virginia, native Americans were declared legally "black/colored". For those who don't understand, this is why there is a "social construct" of race, referred to in the US as the One Drop Rule, that is totally different from the scientific determination of races based on genetic traits which can be readily ascertained in a lab.

But back to Carson's blunder. The real problem with Carson's statement is that it accepts the "we are all immigrants" line. The failure of black "leadership" to maintain the unique nature of the African presence in America is how other NAM (Non-Asian Minority) groups feed off the Black struggle and eventually marginalize not only founding black Americans but also the white founding populations. It should not need to be said that volunteering to leave one's country of origins to wander across a desert, risking bodily harm and death, to trespass on another nation is not the same as being captured (in whatever circumstances), sold as property and thrown onto a ship, fed near starvation diets and exposed to disease, disembarked and sold once again for the sole purpose of providing "free" labour to some plantation owner.

It is the failure of black leadership to keep NAMs off our narrative that has allowed groups to leverage grievances to which they have no rights to at the expense of black folks. Thus this is the real problem with Carson's statement. We are not immigrants, we were property transformed into citizens by law who then had our rights and privileges as citizens trampled upon by other citizens. Our claims to redress is wholly different than that of anyone who volunteered to come here and certainly comes before any foreign national who wishes to come here.

Any Old Excuse Will Do

One of the reasons why I don't write in this space as much as I used to is because the daily bullshit has worn on me and I can think of many other things to do with my time than respond to every bit of nonsense I read about. I mean it's so bad now that I don't even watch the news except for local news. For example. I just had ABC Word News Tonight on for all of the time it took for the lead story. It was that Donald Trump accused Obama of wiretapping him. Ok. But not ONE mention of the black guy who had been arrested for making a number of anti-semitic calls that I have had to hear about nonstop all week. Not only had he made many of these threats but he was a Hillary supporter and had been fired for creating "news" out of whole cloth. Had this guy been a white Trump supporter it would be news all day every day for at least a week.

But today's nonsense comes from The Independent, which is a "news" outlet that specializes in the most outrageous "liberal" bullshit. Today they posted the following

Actor Riz Ahmed has delivered an impassioned lecture expressing his views on the importance of diversity in the media and how failure to embrace it is pushing young people towards Isis.
Really?

This is insulting on the level of the co-worker of mine who, with a serious straight face told me that the reason black people kill each other is because they are feeling oppressed,including not seeing themselves on TV. As I stood there listening to him pontificate on why black people do x,y and z. It apparently never dawned on him that he was telling a black person about all the reasons I should have killed a few people, robbed a few people, be on welfare, etc. The fact that I, and millions of other similarly situated black people never committed a crime, ever (and that's the vast majority of us) never even made it into his all knowing mind.

However, this "any excuse will do" mentality when it comes to non-white people, and it is ONLY applied to non-white people is hallmark leftism. Say Riz, what the fuck did Arabs do before TV? Oh right! Crusades and Jihads. No Riz, the reason why young Muslim men join up with ISIS is because they want to and believe in the call to Jihad against the infidel in Dar Al Gharb. It has nothing to do with diversity. This diversity call is nothing more than cover for infiltration and take over.

He continued: “If we don’t step up and tell a representative story... we are going to start losing British teenagers to the story that the next chapter in their lives is written with Isis in Syria."
British teenagers are not joining ISIS unless they have accepted anti-native narratives. The children of foreigners to Britain on the other hand...

These "excuse" narratives must be met head on wherever they appear as to expose the underlying inferiority ideology behind it.

When Will The Adults Regain Control?

Serious question. Let us look at what happened recently at MiddleBury College
Opening remarks were delivered by the College’s Vice President for Communications and Chief Marketing Officer Bill Burger, AEI Executive Board Member Ivan Valladares ’17 and Middlebury President Laurie L. Patton. AEI Co-President Alexander Khan ’17 introduced Murray. After Murray arrived at the podium, students began to protest.

Approximately twenty minutes after the protest began, the College canceled the live event in Wilson Hall and decided to live stream a private conversation between Murray and Stanger. That live event will be made available through the College’s News Room.

Side note. Murray went out of his way during a previous event to point out that he did not think Trump was fit to be president and generally did not care for the man. Despite that he STILL gets called a white supremacist. When will people understand that there is no pleasing the left? The left has constantly moving goalposts and the safe zone you were in today is foul territory the next. Simply refuse to play the game.

Now that said, I will point out that there is a high probability that 99% of the persons doing the protesting had not read any of Murray's work. How do I know this? Because when I was on the left I blindly took the word of my "better educated" peers that the Bell Curve was racist and that it declared with "racist pseudoscience" that black people were inherently inferior to white people. Because of this, there was no need for me to actually read the book. I should trust that my peers knew what they were talking about and object whenever the book or person was mentioned in any kind of positive light.

This is what we are dealing with. The worst part here is that such an attitude is apparently prevalent on a university campus where reading primary sources and doing research on ideas "good" or "bad" is supposed to be a requirement of education. When you have a mass of students who are protesting a presentation of someone's work whom they have not read it is a failure of the administration.

Students entering an institution of "higher education" should be informed in no uncertain terms that while they have freedom of speech and congregation, they will be removed from campus for disrupting sanctioned events without appeal. To be fair, the first time should be warning, a second a semester suspension without refund of any fees and the third a lifetime expulsion from said institution. There are cameras all over campuses these days so it is easy to find out who has done what.

Furthermore, institutions need to be purged of faculty and staff that encourage victim mentalities and disruptive events. Clearly things like tenure and academic freedom make for a tricky enforcement of such rules but the growing lawlessness on campuses demands that those abusing said privileges be checked.

Getting back to Murray though. Once you have read The Bell Curve you realize that the primary subject of his work are white people of various economic backgrounds. His discussions of black people are relative to the data revealed by studying white folks. In other words, once he establishes that poor, low IQ white people are essentially up the creek without a paddle, then clearly black people who on average score even lower than whites are in even worse trouble.

Also, never mind that Murray shows that high IQ black folk tend to out earn their white counterparts. Never mind all that. And besides if were saying that IQ tests are racist, then what we are saying, in no uncertain terms, is that there are things (like tests) that white people are better at than black people. Therefore admitting an inferiority. But as I discussed in yesterday's post, everyone thinks black people are stupid children so it comes as no surprised that the protesting idiots only serve their own belief in black inferiority.

These protests to shut down dissenting views (aka: alternative facts) from being uttered should be a final warning to university officials across the nation. Either the university is a place of free exchange of information or it is not. If it is not then it is not a university but an indoctrination camp and people ought not spend money on indoctrination camps.

Rage of a Standard Deviation

There's a book called "Rage of a Privileged Class" which I haven't read but discusses the discrimination that black recipients of Affirmative Action feel. A recent post by The Audacious Epigone underscores some of this.

To understand what I'm discussing you need to know that generally speaking the average IQ of whites is 100. Some writers, generally liberal, will attempt to show this as the average human IQ. It is not. Black Americans are generally 1 standard deviation below whites, with an average IQ of about 80-85. And for those who think that IQ is "white supremacist", Asians have an average IQ of 110 or so. It's a "neat trick" for white supremacists to invent a test that they get clobbered on, isn't it? Anyway. If you understand this you understand why, regardless of the amount of money and effort poured into "inner city" schools, test scores still lag (around the same SD). It is even known that accounting for income, generally speaking Black test scores of the highest income earners, on average are just about level of the average score of poverty stricken whites.

This information is critical if you want to understand the "rage of a privileged class". There is a "large" population, in terms of raw numbers, of very bright black people. However because the black population is relatively small, that number is minuscule in relation to the population as a whole:

So here's the thing. If you are one of those black people who are on the far right side of the IQ distribution you are a rare bird (statistically speaking). However, it is likely you also interact with many other rare birds. Because of this you likely think that there are more of you than is represented in the population. Because of this, the following chart burns you up inside:

As you can see, across the board, everyone thinks you're stupid. Everyone thinks that they are smarter than you are even though if you have an IQ of 120 you are "smarter" than 60% of white people (and about 20-30% of Asians). Even white folks without college degrees will assume that you are dumber than they are WITH your degree.

So this rage of a privilege class is right. Two interesting things pop out here:

1) Liberal whites are generally speaking just as likely to think of blacks as "not as smart" as white people even though these liberal white folks claim to believe in "equality". This not only shows their hypocrisy regarding their proclamation of equality but also explains why they have of late attached themselves to ideologies that infantilize black people and treat them as if they have no agency in regards to their bad actions. Clearly they believe black people are mental children and want to shape policy around that idea.

2) Whites with college eductions, who are most likely to have close contact with the smartest of the smart black folks, STILL think black people are less smart than whites. You would think that having been in contact with the brightest black folks that persons with such high educations would have a more "equal" view of blacks. What does this tell us? Indeed it is likely that in college, white students see all the EOF and special programs given to blacks. They see how few black people are in their classes (particularly the hard sciences). It dawns on them, perhaps on an unconscious level, that hey, I might know a few exceptional black people but shit, these folks are not all that bright. Of course this would go unspoken in public, but the chart clearly shows that proximity to the "brightest of the bright" does not alleviate perceptions of lack of intelligence of black people.

So now we see via the math why there is a rage of a privileged class. Why no matter how good a black person is at their job, their White, Asian AND Black coworkers don't think they are really that good. This would also explain why black people have that saying about working twice as hard...

So yeah, if you are a smart black person in a field in which high intelligence is required, you are not imagining things when you perceive that folks don't think you're as bright as they are (and perhaps didn't really earn your position and salary).
