Nil Desperandum has written some very good articles on Little Stevie Halbrook, the race fag. Nil writes that the belief among Alienists that race is nothing more than skin color is like believing that the difference between men and women is the shape of genitalia.
A prominent factor distinguishing races one from another is skin color, to be sure, but that is only because it is a visually recognizable component of race, not because it is the entirety of race.
Alienists love to press the point that all human beings have common ancestry in Adam, without ever acknowledging the fact that God has routinely subdivided Adam’s posterity, according to His will, and we ignore these divisions at our peril. The Fifth Commandment compels us to respect God’s purpose in the world and not arrogantly believe that our duty is to come along behind Him and clean up His mistakes, to recombine the lineage of Adam in new and dangerous ways that God never allowed in history.
“There is only one breed – the dog breed!” Such an argument is nonsense and repugnant to common sense, but Halbrook attempts such sophistry to disprove the reality of human races within Adam’s posterity. He must disintegrate the God-created category of race into meaninglessness…
If families can exist with all their distinctive physical and behavioral characteristics, and yet not compromise the physical unity of Adam’s race, then why cannot races do the same? If it is not “familist” to assert the plurality of families within the unity of humanity, then how is it “racist” to do so with larger groups – with very, very extended families? Halbrook’s careless argument from monogenism, in principle, would forbid the family itself. It is exceedingly dangerous.
This principle of variety-within-unity is perspicuously set forth by St. Paul in Acts 17:26a, yet Halbrook cites this passage to prove the exact opposite point. Paul says, “And [God] hath made of one blood all nations of men.” Halbrook does not notice the object which is made from one blood: a multiplicity of nations. Nations is in the plural, and the term refers not to an arbitrary collection of people within a geo-political boundary, but to a physically related people-group. Paul here teaches expressly that monogenism does not entail racial egalitarianism, but this is ignored by Halbrook.
Blacks have higher bone density and a lower risk of fracture and osteoporosis. This may be why they don’t like to swim; they may not be as buoyant. Their metabolism is lower than that of whites, which could be why so many blacks are obese. Due to at least 31 genes that are “differentially expressed,” they are also genetically more susceptible to hypertension, stroke, and cancer. These are just a few of many physiological racial differences. Race is not merely skin deep.
Part 2 is here, in which the point is made that Halbrook’s racial egalitarianism encourages envy, which leads to countless crimes against our race.
One of the great evils of our day is envy: people, especially non-whites, utterly loathe the fact that others are superior to themselves in wealth and ability. Halbrook perpetuates this idea with his unbiblical myth of equality. Whenever people are led to believe that different races are of equal ability then any observation they make of unequal abilities or unequal success will lead them to believe that these inequalities must have arisen through a series of injustices; and this sense of injustice will then generate moral indignation. In theory, these inferior people will be expressing supposedly righteous anger at the systematic inequalities of “institutional racism,” while in practice, inferior people will be burning with envy at the superior talents of others. In providing such a basis for envy, Halbrook’s racial egalitarianism is heretical and deserves to be destroyed.
Murder, rape, theft, and more, brought to you courtesy of the “Christian” Alienist. “Heresy” is an accurate word for the perverted gnostic gospel they preach, and it’s because, as Nil writes, conversion is not an abstraction from matter but rather the redemption of matter.
Grace does not replace nature but redeems it and builds upon it. God does not destroy the sinner to create some new spiritual being but redeems as much of the sinner as possible by destroying only that which is sinful in him.
Likewise, God does not destroy or replace race, but instead fits the various races into a unity that they could not otherwise know.
Halbrook has a lot in common with the Indian Guru Satya Sai Baba:
There is only one RACE
The race of humankind
There is only one religion
The religion of LOVE
There is only ONE language
The language of the HEART
There have been relatively few Alienist heretics in Christian history. It’s hard to even find much along these lines in ancient writings, but here is a relevant quote from Maximos the Confessor, who is revered as an Eastern Church father:
For him who is perfect in love and has reached the summit of dispassion there is no difference between his own or another’s, or between Christians and unbelievers, or between slave and free, or even between male and female. But because he…has risen above the tyranny of the passions and has fixed his attention on the single nature of man, he looks on all in the same way and shows the same disposition to all. For in him there is neither Greek nor Jew, male nor female, bond nor free, but Christ who “is all, and in all” (Col. 3:11; cf. Gal. 3:28).
This sounds more like Buddhism than Christianity. In general, Christian egalitarianism comes from the Anabaptists.
Anabaptist John Piper talks about “racism” here like it’s a bad thing. I kept waiting to hear evidence of cruel behavior in his wicked Southern past, and I never did. So I don’t get it. Is the purpose of this video just to get the ladies moist? Nice touch about the ovens at Dachau. That really tops it off with a cherry. What’s the deal with 48-year-old white women who have four natural children but are so selfish that they are displeased with what God has given them and must adopt a little stranger? If this is Christianity, why would anyone desire it? It’s ingratitude. It’s the Christianity of narcissists. And what’s the deal with the suggestion that opposition to this unnatural relationship is a denial that the “daughter” is created in the image of God? This is one of the classic non sequiturs that is a trademark of race-mixing Alienists.
It’s not at all surprising that Piper’s race-mixing has led him straight into pluralism. He writes:
…God himself is the foundation for our commitment to a pluralistic democratic order… Christians agree to make room for non-Christian faiths (including naturalistic, materialistic faiths)… [R]epression of free exercise of religion and persuasion is as wrong against Christians as it is against secularists. We believe this tolerance is rooted in the very nature of the gospel of Christ… [T]he spiritual, relational nature of God’s kingdom is the ground of our endorsement of pluralism…
This is a perverted American-baptist-evangelical religion, and it’s as far from Christianity as you can get. Piper makes it clear that he does “not…want to establish Christianity as the law of the land.” But the real history of Christendom has always been coercive. During the Middle Ages, do you think the national adoption of God’s law and the requirement of baptism to hold any kind of office was put up for a democratic vote? Yet this is what made us who we are. A man who invites a stranger into his home and heritage and makes her the equal of his natural children is at the very threshold of idolatry. John Weaver has preached sermons about how multiculturalism, miscegenation, and idolatry are intimately connected. John Piper is living proof of Dan Brannan’s dictum that only Christians who are lovers of kin are a threat to idolatry in the world today. The other “Christians” are no threat at all.
“Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about. All democrats object to men being disqualified by the accident of birth; tradition objects to their being disqualified by the accident of death. Democracy tells us not to neglect a good man’s opinion, even if he is our groom; tradition asks us not to neglect a good man’s opinion, even if he is our father.” ~ G.K. Chesterton
Here’s a far better, and shorter, video than Piper’s suckfest: The Ugly Duckling. This duck couple has four little quackers, just like the ungrateful Mrs. Piper, but they aren’t nearly as delighted as the Pipers to find a fifth in the nest. One look at the little stranger gives the he-duck the thought that his she-duck has been playing the harlot. This is what all Christians used to think of women whose children bore no resemblance to them or their husbands. But “Christians” today aren’t nearly as concerned about looking like whores, what with the “gospel” at stake. The she-duck adamantly denies being guilty of infidelty, then leaves the little stranger to fend for himself as she performs her God-given duty of caring for her own offspring. This used to be the joy of honorable womanhood until selfish, ungrateful 48-year-old “Christian” TV-watchers forced their wormy husbands to get with the program of the New America. The little stranger tries to climb aboard, but the she-duck tosses him off the bus and gives him a good scolding. If only Doug Phillips had been there to teach her how to grow the animal kingdom. I mean, why get all hung up on species or anything else having to do with God’s will? Dejected, the little stranger tries to move in with another family, on the good side of the tracks, in a good school district, but the racist mother chases him off and gives him what-for. Of course, there’s a happy ending, and the swan meets up with his own kind. Familiarity gives him identity, which is another way of saying that he turns into a racist too, and all is well with the world. His new-found racist mother places a much higher value on the color of feathers than the content of character. “Christians” today could never write a story like this.
Here’s another in an endless list of articles about “brave” pastors who are waging jihad against ol’ debbil racism. But in the fine print of such articles is always a statement about how most Christians want nothing to do with their race-mixing.
Ninety-two percent [of congregations] are homogeneous, meaning at least 80 percent of the congregation is comprised of a single racial group.
Christians are apparently still not on board with Dr. King’s Dream. Tsk, tsk. Our friend Colby reminds us that living the Reverend Doctor’s Dream involves joining the Communist Party and buying hookers. But that’s a small price to pay for racial reconciliation, which John Piper says is the greatest need in the Church today.
Let’s reach into the mailbag and see what falls out. Here’s a letter from a friend who is wondering what ever happened to the faith once delivered to the saints.
At the Reformed church we’ve been attending, the Pastor and his wife have one child, an adopted Chinese girl. They’ve been trying to adopt another Chinese child so that their first could have the company of someone like her. (To me, that screams volumes of which the Pastor and his wife are sinfully oblivious.) Their attempt to adopt another Chinese child fell through, so they’ve agreed to adopt a Nigerian child. Almost everyone at the church is giddy about the prospect, and are praying fervently for it to come to pass.
Since we’ve been attending this “church,” I’ve witnessed I don’t know how many child baptisms. A baptism always cheers me. Last week, three children were baptized – African kids who were adopted by a White couple with two natural children. (I feel so sorry for their two real children. I swear, they always look morose and detached. At church services, the family’s seating arrangement is niglet / mother / niglet / father / niglet / White daughter / White son. It’s damned disgusting.) During the baptism, the Pastor began to weep and blubber in something like ecstacy, apparently overcome by his perception that the whole thing was especially rare and exceedingly beautiful. I was sickened by it. I’ve never seen him behave like that over the White children he’s baptized.
Today, after the service, the Pastor invited everyone to join in a celebration of those childrens’ baptism. I became angry, so I left the sanctuary to get a drink. The fellowship hall was festooned for the occasion, and there was a large cake decorated with the names of the three African children. Again, I’ve never seen such done for any of the White children I’ve seen baptized, or make a profession of faith, or received into membership. I’m not saying that it should either always be done or never be done. I’m just mad as hell that the people are falling all over themselves because of the presence of these three Negro children, abandoned by their own people but rescued by White guilt, or White arrogance, or wasted White virtue.
Dear-bought and clear, a thousand year,
Our fathers’ title runs.
Make we likewise their sacrifice,
Defrauding not our sons.
A friend of ours observes that Alienists are like Arminians.
For Arminians, God is cruel if some are chosen by Him to have eternal life, because that would mean some are damned for not being chosen by Him. For universal racists [the one-race idolaters], God is cruel if He has chosen people to belong to distinct people groups and nations, because that would mean that some would belong to worse groups. They are repulsed that God would be sovereign in doing both.
This really is the point. Every heresy begins with dissatisfaction with the fact that God is God and we are not.
We at SWB take great pride in having been the first to introduce Cambria Will Not Yield to the world. Years ago, we were very impressed with his writing in print and encouraged him to expand to the web, and the rest is history. Laura Wood calls him “Tribal Dad” and posts this very good synopsis of his work:
The pseudonymous writer CWNY often argues that the white man has replaced faith in Christ with worship of the black man. CWNY’s argument is more subtle than that. He says rationalism ate away at the heart of the white Christian, who then turned in his lifelessness to the primitivism of the Negro. The liberal Christian sought to recover the elemental and fend off spiritual death.
In other words, the bonds of race can’t be avoided, for to stop running with the pack is to die. The bonds are routinely rejected by liberals only to be substituted by an oath of fealty to The Other. Any race or ad hoc group will do, as long as it satisfies the liberal’s masochism. A somewhat heated and amusing discussion follows at the link above about whether CWNY is too racist. He can’t be that racist; we know that he gets out in the sun when he can.
CWNY on the “inhuman hellhounds who have betrayed their own people and their God in order to serve the satanic abstraction called ‘The People,’ which in modern times has become equivalent to serving the negro,” whose history is a “boring continuum of blood and sex. The only time their histories rise to the level of interesting is when they intersect with the histories of the white people.”
At 30:42 in this talk, R.J. Rushdoony and Otto Scott briefly discuss what was lost as a result of racial desegregation.
Rushdoony: No one then would have imagined the kind of crime that goes on in black neighborhoods.
Scott: No, because they had their own community, and they didn’t consider it segregation.
Rushdoony: And their churches were stronger.
Scott: They had their own churches; not just their own clergy but their own physicians, their own dentists, their own lawyers, their own pharmacists, their own stores, and shopkeepers, and so forth. And they had all the role models in the world, whereas now the black bourgeoisie who gets successful moves away from the black community… The black community lost a lot with desegregation.
Listen at 17:45 in this very interesting talk. Scott and Rushdoony discuss good will and fellowship among racially segregated churches.
Scott: I remember when the early civil rights movement began in the fifties. And if you recall, the cameras would go down into the South, and several black people would appear in a white church and demand entry. And there was quite an outrage when they were not accepted or invited in. Well, putting that to one side as to whether that was a good tactic or not a good tactic, I remember discussing it with some fellows at the Overseas Press Club in New York at the time. And one of them expressed great outrage. And I said, well, have you ever been a member of a church? He said, well, I’ve been to church. I said, did you ever join a church? Have you ever been a member? Have you ever paid dues? Have you ever said you would obey the rules of the church? He said no. I said, are you under the impression that anybody that walks by attends church? Well, he said yes. I said, that’s not true. Catholics go into their church, Protestants go into their various churches. I said, these are not public institutions. They are the most private of institutions. Why should any band of strangers come with a camera crew to demand admittance?
Rushdoony: During the 1930s, California had a great many churches that were organized along nationalistic lines. The Japanese had their churches, the Chinese had theirs, the Assyrians…had their churches. And in fact, they are about the only group that has still been able to maintain them… But I recall that one of the strong groups that was immediately a target of dissolution was [the] Welsh churches. The Welshmen were quite numerous in this state at that time, and they had a number of churches. They had their own presbytery. They had, annually, since the Welsh are magnificent singers, a concert of some of the mass choirs from their churches, in some place like Los Angeles, often in a stadium, with great throngs attending because the Welsh are magnificent singers. [They were] destroyed.
Scott: How were they destroyed?
Rushdoony: Because it was felt that it was discrimination to have a Welsh church, and particularly since the Welsh churches classified as WASP, they had to be destroyed, and a rich heritage was just wiped out… And in due time this will be the direction of things, and [it] has been proposed that there be no discrimination in churches with regard to race, color, sexual preference, or creed…
Then, something that people forget is that prior to World War II, in the South, there was a close relationship between black and white churches. They were segregated. But usually a white church would take a black church under their wing and help them with building projects, with various activities, and regularly the pastors would exchange pulpits and have occasionally a joint service. Now, this was routine. But both the ungodly bigots on the far-out fringes, as well as the liberal bigots, helped destroy that.
At 15:55 in this sermon, Rushdoony explains that the “civil rights revolution” is contrary to Scripture because “the purpose of the law is not equality.” Throughout the Bible, right up until colonial America, citizenship and church membership were considered identical, he says. Restrictive covenants were in place for moral character and other reasons, such that even when everyone went to church, there were oftentimes relatively few church members (perhaps 15%). Just as in the Old Testament, slaves and criminals and foreigners and eunuchs were not allowed to be members, meaning that they were not allowed positions of authority, even though they were Christians. There are racial considerations, as Rushdoony confirms. He observes that the first Church council in Acts 15 permitted segregated congregations, yet with one standard of justice for all.
Restrictive covenants, of course, have been abolished by courts in recent years… Equalitarianism is a modern idea. It did not even exist until fairly recently. It cannot be forced back onto the Bible without violence and dishonesty… The purpose of the law is not to level men, to equalize them, but to establish God’s justice. In relationship to all men, I must maintain one law, God’s offer of salvation, God’s justice; in relation to my family, I can be partial; to my group and my society, restrictive. And I can do this in good conscience before God, provided I do not deny justice to others. This, then, is the biblical standard. Equality, which is the modern purpose of government, has no place in biblical law. It is totally hostile to biblical law. It is no wonder then that John Dewey declared that there is no place in democracy for biblical Christianity…
At 33:04 in this talk, we hear some very true comments about black entitlement.
Scott: The black people of the United States have become convinced that the white people have been placed on earth by God to take care of them, that it is our duty, our holy Christian duty, to support all the black people. They argue that we should bring in more Haitians. We’ve already brought in a million from Haiti, and the island only has three and a half million. They want us to bring them all. Then of course, all the rest of the Caribbeans will follow. Now, we have never really faced up to the consequences of having implanted that idea, that we are responsible for their lives. My own opinion, as a Christian, is is that God put black men on earth to take care of their own wives and children. That is their duty. And our duty is to take care of ours. And if we go beyond that, beyond being as good as we can in our own area, all we do is open up a chain of evils…
Rushdoony: Yes, and what they don’t say when they talk about these people of Haiti is that Haiti is one of the main locales in the world of AIDS.
Scott: Well, we are actually listening to men who tell us that we should bring in the diseased of the world, that it is our duty…
Only Portugal made the mistake of intermarriage. And it was a mistake, because within three generations Portugal ceased to be a first-class power. And they were great in their day. They were the great explorers, the great seamen, and so forth, and they had a very high culture.
At 13:41 in this talk, Rushdoony adds:
I believe that because the white man has lost his courage, he has lost his faith. And he is fearful about everything. All kinds of minority peoples who are being trained, brought along on the road to civilization, educated, and helped by the white man, have suddenly smelled fear in him and are becoming outrageous in their behavior, contemptuous, and a great deal of our social unrest, I believe, is because the white man has lost his guts.
“As the faith that gave birth to the West is dying in the West, peoples of European descent from the steppes of Russia to the coast of California have begun to die out, as the Third World treks north to claim the estate. The last decade provided corroborating if not conclusive proof that we are in the Indian Summer of our civilization.” ~ Pat Buchanan
“There is not a single year between 1970 and 2050 where Germany’s birth rate even approaches the replacement level of 2.1 children per woman. By mid-century, Germany will have been below zero population growth for 80 years. This is a nation slowly taking its leave of this world.” God help us.
The world’s largest sperm bank is no longer accepting redheads as donors. But redheads are extremely popular as mates in Ireland, where births are up 7.6%, the vast majority of which are white. The rest of the West should take notice. Ireland is reversing the decline of our race, and it’s because the Irish love themselves. Germany is dying because it has been taught by Jews to hate itself.
More than 97% of the National Register of Historic Places commemorates white men, which means “that the score is not even,” according to the Secretary of the Interior. Therefore, the empire will continue to pretend that diversities had some part to play in the founding of our formerly-white, formerly-Christian nation.
A BB&T bank announces a holiday to whites as Columbus Day and to mestizos as “El Día de la Raza” (The Day of the Race).
At 50:40 in this talk, Scott and Rushdoony reflect on the genocide of the white race.
Scott: A country that throttles its writers while claiming to be free is especially infuriating… The white Christians are the only white whales left on the horizon, and there are lots of Ahabs with spears looking for them. It’s a very strange state of affairs. And really, if we come down to it, I think that is what has killed our literature. We cannot tell the truth about our society. And if we can’t do that, how can you write?
It certainly is hard to write for money if you want to write the truth.
Listen at 27:57 in this talk.
Scott: We are undertaking a series of experiments in this country that have never worked in the history of the world. Now, that’s a long time. And it takes an awful lot of arrogance to fly in the face of the history of all humanity and say we are going to do something that has never been done before. We are going to make all people believe that race, ethnicity, class, background, size, and all other differences are going to be totally irrelevant.
Rush: Well, a minor point; it has been tried on a very small scale, some of the Greek city-states. And Aristophenes ridiculed the whole idea…in his plays. But it has never worked.
At 14:03 in this talk, Rushdoony observes that if not for the white gift of quinine to the world, 6 out of 7 people in India would not be alive. It also made colonialism possible in South Africa and Rhodesia, which were not populated until the white man pioneered the land. We routinely hear that white men brought diseases with them that wiped out the native population, but everyone conveniently forgets that the white man brought the cure. Otto Scott notes that the Indian gift to white people was syphilis, which “wiped out a fair percentage of Europe within a few decades, and is still a plague in the world.” But schoolkids don’t learn about that; they learn that whites killed Indians by diseases, probably on purpose, because they’re white, after all. To argue that whites deliberately developed immunities that other races could not “is to abandon reason,” says Scott, “because every race has certain strengths and weaknesses, and they are not all the same.”
Rushdoony: Yes, and the high ratio of sickle-cell anemia among blacks is due to the fact that they somehow survived malaria.
Scott: Yes, and of course as we know, the blacks in the United States lost tribal identity, and so they intermarried with each other. And some of the characteristics now are quite confused.
But instead of lamenting this loss of tribal identity and consequent ugliness as an aberrence of nature, it is now heralded as normative for the Christian.
Continuing at 21:39:
Scott: Nobody gives Europe credit anymore for anything, not even Europeans… Americans don’t give themselves credit anymore. To even talk about it is to start an argument.
Rushdoony: Well, you remember in ’87, how everybody in England, virtually, that we met was damning their own country for its colonialism, either damning it or apologizing for their past.
Scott: You remember, we both came to the conclusion that they were violating a commandment, they were dishonoring their own parents and their own heritage. I mean, honor thy father and thy mother. What sort of person is it that denigrates his heritage?
When we Kinists talk this way, Alienists call us evil. I’ve had several pastors vociferously deny to my face that the Fifth Commandment has anything to do with love of race or love of heritage.
“Here would I also eike another crime to bee vnpardonable, if I should not be thought partiall: but the fatherly loue I beare you, will make mee breake the bounds of shame in opening it vnto you. It is then, the false and vnreuerent writing or speaking of malicious men against your Parents and Predecessors: ye know the command in Gods lawe, Honour your Father and Mother: and consequently, sen ye are the lawful magistrate, suffer not both your Princes and your Parents to be dishonoured by any; especially, sith the example also toucheth your selfe, in leauing thereby to your successors, the measure of that which they shal mete out againe to you in your like behalfe. I graunt wee haue all our faults, which, priuately betwixt you and God, should serue you for examples to meditate vpon, and mend in your person; but should not be a matter of discourse to others whatsoeuer. And sith ye are come of as honourable Predecessours as any Prince liuing, represse the insolence of such, as vnder pretence to taxe a vice in the person, seeke craftily to staine the race, and to steale the affection of the people from their posteritie: For how can they loue you, that hated them whom-of ye are come? Wherefore destroy men innocent young sucking Wolues and Foxes, but for the hatred they beare to their race? and why wil a coult of a Courser of Naples, giue a greater price in a market, then an Asse-colt, but for loue of the race? It is therefore a thing monstrous, to see a man loue the childe, and hate the Parents: as on the other part, the infaming and making odious of the parents, is the readiest way to bring the sonne in contempt. And for conclusion of this point, I may also alledge my owne experience: For besides the iudgments of God, that with my eyes I haue seene fall vpon all them that were chiefe traitours to my parents, I may iustly affirme, I neuer found yet a constant biding by me in all my straites, by any that were of perfite aage in my parents dayes, but onely by such as constantly bode by them; I meane specially by them that serued the Queene my mother: for so that I discharge my conscience to you, my Sonne, in reuealing to you the trewth, I care not, what any traitour or treason-allower thinke of it.” ~ King James VI & I to his son, Henry IX, Prince of Wales, teaching him that the love of parents extends to posterity, government, and race
And just like that, the American empire decrees that nationality has nothing to do with blood. (Preachers everywhere applaud vigorously.) Negroes are henceforth Cherokee Indians. An Indian, or an American for that matter, is whosoever or whatsoever the government declares him to be. So let it be written, so let it be done. David Yeagley writes: “No human beings on earth will ever be allowed to deny the Negro anything – even the fact that he’s not Indian… The Negro is aggressive, arrogant, and will not be denied, or threatened. All must bow to him. No race is without the Negro. No nation can deny the Negro. The Negro rules.”
“The color of a man’s skin is part of his essential soul; if he must deny that soul in order to exist he will pine away and die.” ~ CWNY
The best definition of the word “racist” that you’ll see.
Barbara Walters is a racist. And the worst part of it is that she doesn’t even understand why she’s a racist. We here at SWB are appalled by her pronunciation of the word “nigger.” It’s inexcusable.
Black men like their women the way they like their toilet paper: soft, white, and strong.
“The word ‘Niggerhead’ allegedly appeared on a rock that sat on a piece of land owned by the family of Rick Perry back in the early 1980s.” And Jesus wept.
Well, this is an unfortunate audio malfunction.
Dee Troof Gon’ Make U Free. I’m going to buy one of those suits, as sho’ as you’s born. Look at the armbands! Fantastic. I had no idea that Haitians are Levites.
“They smashed our window, ripped the plasma TVs off our walls, took all our jackets and rucksacks. I saw them go into Claire’s Accessories, break into NatWest, liberate our neighbours, Toni & Guy, of hair products. They carted off iPods from Currys, clothes from Debenhams, mobile phones from Carphone Warehouse. I was horrified. But Waterstone’s [bookstore], directly opposite us, was untouched. For the looters it was as if it did not exist.” Like kryptonite.
According to Interactive One, there are only three good black men for every 100 black women, with “good” defined as: high school diploma, employed with a modest income, has never been to jail or prison, no illegitimate children, and not aggressively pursuing white women. This reminds me of a Chris Rock joke in which the punchline is the black man who expects accolades for doing what he’s supposed to do. “I take care of my kids!”
Part of Elizabeth Wright’s website was lost, and this appears to be the latest cache. This is what she calls Martin Delany’s ignored admonition, taken from the anthology, African-American Social & Political Thought 1850-1920:
White men are producers – we are consumers. They build houses, and we rent them. They raise produce, and we consume it. They manufacture clothes and wares, and we garnish ourselves with them. They build coaches, vessels, cars, hotels, saloons, and other vehicles and places of accommodation, and we deliberately wait until they have got them in readiness, then walk in, and contend with as much assurance for a “right,” as though the whole thing was bought by, paid for, and belonged to us…
Until we are determined to change the condition of things, and raise ourselves above the position in which we are now prostrated, we must hang our heads in sorrow and hide our faces in shame. It is enough to know that these things are so; the causes we care little about. Those we have been examining, complaining about, and moralizing over, all our life time. This we are weary of.
What we desire to learn now is, how to effect a remedy; this we have endeavored to point out. Our elevation must be the result of self-efforts, and work of our own hands. No other human power can accomplish it. If we but determine it shall be so, it will be so. Let each one make the case his own, and endeavor to rival his neighbor, in honorable competition.
These are the proper and only means of elevating ourselves and attaining equality in this country or any other, and it is useless, utterly futile, to think about going anywhere, except we are determined to use these as the necessary means of developing our manhood. The means are at hand, within our reach. Are we willing to try them?
Sage but unheeded advice.
The do-gooder author of The Help is being sued by the black maid she portrayed, and is being called a racist to boot. Well, I’ll declare, as my grandfather used to say.
The Four Reformers by Robert Louis Stevenson might cause you to think of the unwashed Occupy Wall Street mob, for as long as you can stand it.
Four reformers met under a bramble bush. They were all agreed the world must be changed.
“We must abolish property,” said one.
“We must abolish marriage,” said the second.
“We must abolish God,” said the third.
“I wish we could abolish work,” said the fourth.
“Do not let us get beyond practical politics,” said the first. “The first thing is to reduce men to a common level.”
