(By an anonymous author)
almost 150 years the United States has been conducting an interesting
experiment. The subjects of the experiment: black people and
hypothesis to be tested: Can a people taken from the jungles of Africa
and forced into slavery be fully integrated as citizens in a majority
whites were descendants of Europeans who had created a majestic
civilization. The former slaves had been tribal peoples with no written
language and virtually no intellectual achievements. Acting on a policy
that was not fair to either group, the government released newly freed
black people into a white society that saw them as inferiors. America
has struggled with racial discord ever since.
after decade the problems persisted but the experimenters never gave
up. They insisted that if they could find the right formula the
experiment would work, and concocted program after program to get the
result they wanted. They created the Freedmans Bureau, passed civil
rights laws, tried to build the Great Society, declared War on Poverty,
ordered race preferences, built housing projects, and tried midnight
new laws intruded into peoples lives in ways that would have been
otherwise unthinkable. They called in National Guard troops to enforce
school integration. They outlawed freedom of association. Over the
protests of parents, they put white children on buses and sent them to
black schools and vice-versa. They tried with money, special programs,
relaxed standards, and endless hand wringing to close the achievement
gap. To keep white backlash in check they began punishing public and
even private statements on race. They hung up Orwellian public banners
that commanded whites to Celebrate Diversity! and Say No to Racism.
Nothing was off limits if it might salvage the experiment.
thought that what W.E.B. DuBois called the Talented Tenth would lead
the way for black people. A group of elite, educated blacks would knock
down doors of opportunity and show the world what blacks were capable
is a Talented Tenth. They are the black Americans who have become
entrepreneurs, lawyers, doctors and scientists. But ten percent is not
enough. For the experiment to work, the ten percent has to be followed
by a critical mass of people who can hold middle-class jobs and promote
social stability. That is what is missing.
the years, too many black people continue to show an inability to
function and prosper in a culture unsuited to them. Detroit is
bankrupt, the south side of Chicago is a war zone, and the vast
majority of black cities all over America are beset by degeneracy and
violence. And blacks never take responsibility for their failures.
Instead, they lash out in anger and resentment.
the generations and across the country, as we have seen in Detroit,
Watts, Newark, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, and now Ferguson, rioting and
looting are just one racial incident away. The white elite would tell
us that this doesn't mean the experiment has failed. We just have to
try harder. We need more money, more time, more understanding, more
programs, and more opportunities.
nothing changes no matter how much money is spent, no matter how many
laws are passed, no matter how many black geniuses are portrayed on TV,
and no matter who is president. Some argue its a problem of culture, as
if culture creates peoples behavior instead of the other way around.
Others blame white privilege.
since 1965, when the elites opened Americas doors to the Third World,
immigrants from Asia and India people who are not white, not rich, and
not connected have quietly succeeded. While the children of these
people are winning spelling bees and getting top scores on the SAT,
black youths are committing half the country's violent crime, which
includes viciously punching random white people on the street for the
thrill of it that has nothing to do with poverty.
experiment has failed. Not because of white culture, or white
privilege, or white racism. The fundamental problem is that American
black culture has evolved into an un-fixable and crime ridden mess. They do not want to change their culture
or society, and expect others
to tolerate their violence and amoral behavior. They have become
socially incompatible with other races by their own design, not because
of the racism of others - but by their own hatred of non-blacks.
leaders don't seem to understand just how tired their white subjects
are with this experiment. They don't
understand that white people
aren't out to get black people; they are just exhausted with them. They
are exhausted by the social pathologies, the violence, the endless
complaints, and the blind racial solidarity, the bottomless pit of
grievances, the excuses, and the reflexive animosity.
elites explain everything with racism, and refuse to believe that white
frustration could soon reach the boiling point.
can't legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of
freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person
must work for without receiving. The government can't give to anybody
anything that the government doesn't first take from somebody else.
When half of the people get the idea that they don't have to work
because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the
other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody
else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about
the end of any nation.
cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
