The Associated Press published a piece about how blackface “spotlights deeply embedded racism” in the United States with some eyebrow raising quotes. The narrative itself is pretty standard for the current manufactured political and racial climate between blacks and whites in America and so it is a good chance to explore the most obvious consequences of slavery and racism that are ubiquitously ignored.
I think we owe it to ourselves to take a honest look at our own history and the ramifications of our past actions.
When Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam refused to resign last week, he did so in the shadow of a Capitol built by a founding father and a slave owner, in the former seat of the Confederacy still wrestling with what to do about statues that honor those who fought to preserve slavery.
The 35-year-old photo on his yearbook page of a person in blackface and another person in a Ku Klux Klan robe has brought about a stunning reversal of fortune in Northam’s political career and laid bare for the nation just how deeply racist behavior remains interwoven in American culture, institutions and politics. In rejecting calls to step down, the 59-year-old white son of Virginia came across to many African-Americans as displaying a sense of white privilege.
The first thing I want to point out is that, as I mentioned, the current so-called racial tension in the United States is indeed a manufactured product. Before Martin Luther King Jr. and other landmarks of black empowerment such as the constant inciting to resentment the media started applying on the black population and the Democrat takeover of black neighborhoods and of blacks’ social and political lives, blacks and whites were able to live together in a more or less manageable way. Both knew to stay out of each other’s lanes until the also artificial concept of equality came into the picture. Pretty similar to the situation with women, women’s vote, equal rights, and the inclusion of women in traditional male spaces, the real problems began after we’ve succumbed to the flawed idea of equality.
If someone is your equal, slavery and discrimination for no other reason than being deeply disgusted by the color of their skin sounds pretty bigoted. But blacks are not equal to whites and women are not equal to men.
Knowing that, let’s take a look at some of the polemical quotes from the article.
“What we have learned over the last 24 hours along with all the incidents of the last two years brings front and center the need for this nation to deal with the question of race once and for all,” NAACP President Derrick Johnson said in an interview Saturday. “Because we have (President Donald) Trump in the White House, who has created a political landscape of intolerance and racial hatred, this has exposed a wound that has been festering for a while now.”
“I think a lot of black folks are tired of apologies and talking,” said Wes Bellamy, a councilman in Charlottesville, Virginia, who has worked for the removal of Confederate statues in the city. “This is another ugly stain on our state’s history. We are going to have to commit ourselves to making this right — not just with our words, but with our resources.”
It’s true that the question of race is something we have to deal with once and for all. Although I think calling blacks a different race is an understatement as they’re an entirely different species, I don’t want to go into that right now. Instead, I’ll take this chance to attack the very foundations of the attack vectors employed in pitting blacks against whites.
I’ll start with the idea that we should be apologizing to blacks, and then move on to this idea floated on the above quotes that we should compensate blacks for slavery.
Apologies are indeed owed
There is no other place on Earth where blacks live as well as blacks live in the United States of America. Not even close.
Despite slavery itself being an improvement to their natural condition, even if we ignore that fact for a moment and assume slavery was bad, the actual consequences of slavery have been indisputably good for blacks. The answer to the question “have blacks benefited from being enslaved more than we’ve benefited from enslaving them?” is a resounding YES.
African-Americans are the most privileged blacks in the history of blacks and they’re the most privileged blacks in the world today, thanks to the fact that we brought them here.
They live in the best country and have the entire media apparatus on their side pushing the idea that they’re the equals of the people responsible for the greatness of the country despite their only contribution being cotton picking hundreds of years ago.
Apologies are indeed owed. The blacks owe us an apology.
But an apology is not enough.
Compensation is indeed owed
We are owed compensation. Blacks should be paying us. So far they’ve been a net loss for whites and the overall effect of them being in our countries has been detrimental. They commit the most violent crime, for example, and take the most resources from the State, which means they take the most resources from productive people.
That brings us to the productivity question.
The only time blacks have ever been productive is when we forced them to work. Looking at history, you’ll see that Africa today is no different from the Africa of old once you remove the stuff that we literally put there, such as cities and infrastructure.
Blacks are pretty much in the same state our ancestors found them when they first set foot on Africa. The ones that have more or less changed for the better are the ones that have some white genes due to race-mixing, and those are still nowhere near any clear-skinned peoples of the world.
It is self-evident that blacks are not ever going to start being productive again out of their own accord. The only way to turn them productive again would be to bring back slavery, but bringing back slavery would still end up benefiting them more than it would benefit us.
We’ve learned from our past mistakes. Yes. Slavery was indeed a mistake, not because it was somehow mean to blacks but because it backfired horribly for us. The things we got out of it pale in comparison to the things we lost from it. The amount of money we’ve been spending in all kinds of aid for blacks is insane, and we’re not even limiting our aid to blacks in America.
All that money wasted and all that money we’re still wasting on them… for what? So they can be the most violent demographic of the United States? So they can commit the most crimes? So they can rape our women? So the media could brainwash our women into viewing them as the superior choice compared to white men?
Doable choices to move forward include, in order of how likely they are of being implemented in the near future:
- Cutting our losses and going back to segregation. Let blacks have their own cities and even their own state if they want it, and once they turn it into Haiti or some other shithole, we invade them to neutralize the threat.
- Brainwash them into accepting slavery was good and thanking us for giving them the gift of American citizenship. This option is quite boring and would also mean we’d have to coexist with them and share the same spaces, with everything that implies.
- Shipping all of them back to Africa.
- Sterilize all blacks receiving more money from the State than they contribute to it whose parents also took more money from the State than they contributed to it. This will either phase out lazy blacks and leave us with the less workophobes or straight out result in their disappearance from America given how most of them are averse to labor.
There are more possibilities, of course, but those are the four I’m most fond of.
The idea that blacks are less than human is not to be shunned. Calling everything that can walk and talk like us “human” is laughable. There are visual similarities but we’re not the same, as there are more and bigger differences beyond appearance. Behavior, aptitudes, capacity, and even what we desire is blatantly different to anyone who isn’t closing their eyes.
The trust Northam, a pediatric neurologist, established with his patients was not unlike the faith he sought from voters. In running for governor, many people — including the 87 percent of black voters who supported him — saw Northam as a candidate who belongs to a party associated with justice and equality, who ran against an opponent tied to a president who has been accused of racism.
Their vote for Northam was, in part, a rejection of those views and beliefs. The governor’s defiance amid the roar for him to step aside among even his Democratic colleagues, black and white, casts doubt on Northam’s ability to represent these voters going forward, said NAACP President Johnson.
“If we cannot recognize African-Americans are full citizens entitled to humane treatment by our public policy makers, how can we expect public policy to meet the needs and interests of those communities being portrayed as less than human?” Johnson asked.
Blacks being entitled to something is also laughable. They’ve benefited the most from the things they whine about, and they want to milk it further and receive more free stuff.
We’ve given them enough free stuff for their lifetime.
In fact, it’s time we take some of it back.
Maybe all of it.
