Never enough

At Diversity is Chaos, blogger Average Joe  links to an article on a new Pew Research poll on racial relations. And it’s the same old story: there is a disparity between the attitudes of blacks and Whites as to whether race relations have improved, or whether ‘inequality’ has been adequately addressed — addressed by Whites, of course.

“A new Pew Research Center survey finds profound differences between black and white adults in their views on racial discrimination, barriers to black progress and the prospects for change. Blacks, far more than whites, say that black people are treated unfairly across different realms of life, from dealing with the police to applying for a loan or mortgage. And, for many blacks, racial equality remains an elusive goal. An overwhelming majority of blacks (88%) say that the country needs to continue making changes for blacks to have equal rights with whites, but 43% are skeptical that such changes will ever occur. An additional 42% of blacks believe that the country will eventually make the changes needed for blacks to have equal rights with whites, and just 8% say that the country has already made the necessary changes.”

The article puts the issue in the context of the 2008 election of the first black president, an event that was viewed as a supposed watershed in race relations, either as proof of the fact that America had ‘put race behind us’, or as a sign of hope that race relations could be mended by having a black president to be a ‘unifier.’

I mean, did anyone with knowledge of the real world, or anyone with two brain cells to rub together, really believe that the outcome of that election would be the means to ending the racial rift in this country?

From what I remember, yes, some people did actually profess to believe that. Some of my dull-witted liberal friends (and sadly, relatives) said they believed it was a good thing that we had ‘made history’ and ‘put race behind us’ in that 2008 election. Have they admitted they were badly mistaken and deluded? Do liberals ever admit that?

But it was not just these delusional lefties who believed that voting for the first black president was the thing to do to ‘heal our divisions’; I distinctly remember that a lot of self-described ‘race realists’ at AmRen and such forums, or even some White Nationalists said that they would gladly help ‘make history’ by voting for the first black POTUS.

Why? We might well ask, but I remember that the refrain was that ‘if we elect a black, then blacks won’t have any excuse to complain about the government, or about ”racist” Whites, because after all, America elects a black, so they would then have no valid grievance anymore, and would have to take responsibility themselves.’

We see how well that worked out. But has anyone ever admitted how mistaken that belief was? The people who argued for it are silent on their choice now.

Then there was the perennial ”worse is better” faction, who said they would vote Democrat because things would disintegrate, and all the better for those who wanted to see the end of the multicult regime.

Has that worked? All I know is that in the chaos of the ‘worse’ that people voted for, thinking it would lead to something better, I see a lot of innocent people being sacrificed so that something better might possibly arise, who knows when.

As for the immediate question of whether race relations are better, how can anybody ask this question, in the aftermath of the Ferguson intifada, the ‘BLM’ movement, George Zimmerman, ‘flash mob attacks’ and all the rest of the social disturbances of the past 7+ years?

And if race relations aren’t better, of course as always blacks will lay 110 per cent of the blame at Whitey’s feet. Nothing, you see, is ever the fault of blacks, or of any non-White or victim group. Rule Number One in this race-relations game is that Whitey is always wrong. If race relations are to improve, or even if we were to aim for a truce between the races, it would be Whitey who must change, who must accommodate and apologize and make amends and apportion money (slave reparations, anyone?) to make things all right.

But in the years since the first skirmishes in the Civil Rights revolution, how  many billions, or trillions, have been paid out to try to quell racial ‘unrest‘, or for social programs meant to appease and pacify, to buy good behavior, and to what end? All that has happened was that our society has been turned on its head, with blacks put in many unearned positions of power and prestige, as we increasingly defer to blacks and other minorities. The result: ever more ‘hate Whitey‘ rants from wealthy black celebrities, and endless media harping on ‘racism’ and ‘cultural appropriation.’

Giving in to each and every demand for more tribute, more appeasement, more special privileges, does nothing but whet the appetite of the perpetually-aggrieved for yet more concessions, more kowtowing, more power. Because make no mistake, it’s all a power play. When once someone learns that they can attain power by playing the perpetual wronged victim, and once they have learned that instilling guilt in one’s enemy leads to concessions and rewards, the extortion game will go on forever. There will never be enough to satisfy those who are making demands. Even electing a president of their people rather than our own was not enough, and was never meant to be enough.

The government and their media propaganda arm have stoked the fires of this anti-White grievance industry, and if innocent people continue to be harmed as a result of media incitement and inflammatory rhetoric, they should be called to account for the malicious part they have played in this never-ending crisis.

  1. You mentioned “cultural appropriation” in your article, which promoted me to write to you about Marvel Comics newest – and coolest – superhero.

    Iron “Man” is now a black female teenager (15yrs old to be exact). She’s also a child prodigy, like her predecessor, and also attends the prestigious MIT.

    In case you don’t already know, Marvel also eradicated other white heterosexual male heroes as well. Spiderman is now a racially mixed black-Hispanic. Thor is now a woman. The Green Lantern is a gay man. Recent talk at Marvel revealed that a trans character is in the works, which may even make it to the big screen in the near future.

    Any mention of this is overt dramatics on the part of whites, if it’s not done with jubilation. Heroes that have been around since my grandfather’s era, perhaps longer, are dying away – along with the white people and society that used to childishly idolize then. It’s time to idolize real heroes, according to Marvel.

  2. Nick – I can’t keep up with all these changes; last I heard, Thor was (in the movies, at least) a black African man. But now a woman? This is going beyond absurd.
    They really are out to destroy all our heroes, and our history. Some may think those are inconsequential things but I think it’s vital for young people in particular to have cultural heroes, heroes amongst our own folk, part of our heritage. This kind of appropriation and destruction, really, is outright cultural warfare on us.
    One of the most obnoxious things about the Left and the nonwhites they serve is that they won’t leave one small corner of our cultural life untouched. There is no escaping the propaganda which consumes every area of life, from ‘high culture’ to the lowest pop culture. It’s ubiquitous and relentless.


  3. Well said, VA. We’ve got to end this game of pin the tale on the honkey. If we tolerate aggression, we just invite more of it. An old Jewish saying puts it pretty well: When the ox is down, many are the butchers.
