Decay On Parade...

from James Edwards,


Glenn Beck’s big rally at the Lincoln Memorial a couple days ago is the talk of the news media and the internet. Liberals are denouncing it, conservatives are walking on air, while tens of millions of people are completely mystified. And with good reason – if Seinfeld was a show about nothing, this massive gathering was a rally about nothing. And while it may have looked impressive, in reality it shows just how impotent and adrift the mainstream conservative movement has become.

Nobody is really sure what it was even about. Beck, who is only famous because he has spent hours a day for the last decade ranting about politics, says it had nothing to do with politics, even though Sarah Palin was the keynote speaker.

It was about “restoring honor” or something, whatever that’s supposed to mean.
Or it was a way of supporting the troops, depending on which day you listened to Beck.

Then it turned into a rally to reclaim the Civil Rights movement, and give it back to the people who Beck swears pioneered the Civil Rights movement, right wing conservatives. Yes, that’s what Beck actually claims to believe. Leave it to Glenn Beck to make white-hating black columnist Leonard Pitts look sane and reasonable.

It also has something do with honoring all those unsung heroes of the American Revolution, the numerous black Founding Fathers, whose existence (until Beck came along to set the record straight) has been covered up by “liberals” who are trying to divide us by race. Yes, Beck actually says this, too.

I didn't watch the thing, but I've seen clips and read enough about it (and knew enough about it's organizers before hand) to know what it would be.


And what it was, was a bizarre neo-Babylonian psycho-babble orgy of confusion and listlessness.


More than that, it really did look like a cross between Jonestown and Wookstock.


It was an exultation and celebration of Marxism and Death.


I have no doubt that if these people get together again, they'll crown the Anti-Christ.

When Projection Doesn't Meet Expectation...

The article, titled "The weirdest people in the world?", appears in the current issue of the journal Brain and Behavioral Sciences. Dr. Henrich and co-authors Steven Heine and Ara Norenzayan argue that life-long members of societies that are Western, educated, industrialized, rich, democratic — people who are WEIRD — see the world in ways that are alien from the rest of the human family. The UBC trio have come to the controversial conclusion that, say, the Machiguenga are not psychological outliers among humanity. We are.

"If you're a Westerner, your intuitions about human psychology are probably wrong or at least there's good reason to believe they're wrong," Dr. Henrich says.

...

After analyzing reams of data from earlier studies, the UBC team found that WEIRD people reacted differently from others in experiment after experiment involving measures of fairness, anti-social punishment and co-operation, as well as visual illusions and questions of individualism and conformity.

Privileged Westerners, uniquely, define themselves by their personal characteristics as opposed to their roles in society.


The article theorizes that this development occurred as a result of the Industrial Revolution.
Most likely, that merely magnified the condition.

What it boils down to is what has been written here many times. Namely, that White people have the bad habit of projecting their own morals, personality, temperaments and notions of government, law & order and so on, onto non-Whites.

Thus (for example) with this mindset, invasions of other nations are justified, as we are bringing our "glorious ways" of government and society to the rest of the world.
Or the reverse of that, allowing millions of non-Whites to pour into our lands in the belief that they can't wait to turn into us and share our views on law, social order, customs, virtues and so on.

Another example is the "racism" scare. ONLY White people feel obliged to question the existence of race and fret over "racism".
For the rest of the world (90%) race is a given, and accepted as real and significant.


Thus the Tea Party people continue to be confused as to why they are called racists for their notions of government and culture.



The TRUTH is that non-Whites see and experience the world in a completely different way than Whites. And until Whites again come to grips with that (it was commonly accepted up until the 1960's) they will be in for a very dark and dangerous time.

+ 43 Million Third Worlders Added In The Last 12 Years...

Otellini's remarks during dinner at the Technology Policy Institute's Aspen Forum here amounted to a warning to the administration officials and assorted Capitol Hill aides in the audience: Unless government policies are altered, he predicted, "the next big thing will not be invented here. Jobs will not be created here."

The U.S. legal environment has become so hostile to business, Otellini said, that there is likely to be "an inevitable erosion and shift of wealth, much like we're seeing today in Europe--this is the bitter truth."

The transfer of American Industry abroad is 99% complete.

As that has occurred, tens of millions of uneducated, low IQ, Orcs from the third world have been ENCOURAGED to pour in, supported (for the time) by a welfare state propped up by White middle-class taxpayers.

Now, those middle-class taxpayers are disappearing from the equation as well.

What is coming across the southern border is not immigration, it is a mass migration. And migrations always end badly.

The similarity between the last years of Rome and America today are staggering.

Truth Vs. Ideology...

from Amren,

Despite Marxism’s collapse in the Soviet Union and in Eastern Europe, there is still a small but influential contingent of American intellectuals who believe that wealth is illegitimate, nationality is spurious, intelligence is an accident of environment, and race is meaningless.

...

However, an increasing number of Americans oppose the investigation of racial differences because they are afraid of where it might lead. Herbert Spencer wrote that the greatest of infidelities was the fear that the truth may be bad; today one of the most common reasons for opposing discussion of racial differences is the fear that the truth may be very bad indeed.

....

What is the price of refusing to acknowledge racial differences? It is as simple and as staggering as this: America will never solve its racial problems.

The most immediate problem is that blacks and, to a lesser extent, Hispanics are failing in disproportionate numbers. If we are to believe that all races are equally talented and hard-working then the failures of blacks and Hispanics cannot be their own fault. They can only be the fault of white people. Therefore every time a non-white takes drugs, goes on welfare or commits a crime it is a silent indictment of “racist” white people, past and present. It cannot be otherwise if all races have the same natural potential.

The World As It Is, Not As We Wish It To Be...

In 21st century America, institutional racism and sexism remain great twin evils to be eradicated on our long journey to the wonderful world where, at last, all are equal.

What are we to make, then, of a profession that rewards workers with fame and fortune, yet discriminates ruthlessly against women; an institution where Hispanics and Asians, 20 percent of the U.S. population, are neither sought after nor widely seen.

In this profession, white males, a third of the population, retain a third of the jobs. But black males, 6.5 percent of the U.S. population, have 67 percent of the coveted positions—10 times their fair share.

We are talking of the NFL.

In figures reported by columnist Walter Williams, not only are black males 77 percent of the National Basketball Association, they are 67 percent of the players in the NFL.

Yet no one objects that women are not permitted to compete in the NFL. Nor do many object to the paucity of Asian and Mexicans, or the over-representation of blacks, even as white males dominate the National Hockey League and the PGA.

When it comes to sports—high school, collegiate or professional—Americans are intolerant of lectures about diversity and inclusiveness. They want the best—the best in the NFL, the best in the NBA, the best at Augusta, the best at Wimbledon, the best in the Olympics, the best in the All-Star Game, the World Series, the Super Bowl.

When it comes to artistic ability, musical ability, acting ability, athletic ability, Americans accept the reality of inequality. We are not all born equal, other than in our God-given and constitutional rights.

Iowa...

Jason Pulliam and Tom Alex, Des Moines Register, August 26, 2010

Des Moines police investigators are unable to confirm that weekend violence outside the Iowa State Fairgrounds was racially motivated, officials said Wednesday—shifting away from written reports and public statements made by officers after the melee.

“We don’t want to jump to conclusions,” Lt. Joe Gonzalez said. “It is not the standpoint of the police department right now to say that it’s racially motivated. We are following up and continually talking to the victims.”

The statements were a change from earlier in the week, when a police official said it was “very possible” race was a factor in the incidents.

A report filed by Sgt. Dave Murillo said there were 30 to 40 people roaming the fairgrounds openly referring to “beat whitey night.”

On Wednesday, Capt. Randy Dawson said he could not find the origin of information that appeared in Murillo’s report.

Interviews with victims of attacks outside the fairgrounds have not produced evidence that any of the incidents were racially motivated, he said.

Gonzalez and Dawson said the “beat whitey night” information stemmed from “general intelligence information” that was unsubstantiated and had been misinterpreted.

Murillo made the report while he was working off-duty at Mercy Medical Center, Dawson said. It was unclear who told Murillo that people roaming the fairgrounds were making those kinds of statements.

“I’ve been looking into that, and I cannot find the origin of that comment,” Dawson said.

Police do not believe the attacks were orchestrated, Dawson said.

“I would say it was random. . . . There’s no indication there was a plan to make this kind of disruption,” he said.

{snip}

Abdul-Samad [Rep. Ako Abdul-Samad, D-Des Moines], who has worked to fight gang-related violence, told The Des Moines Register this week that factors other than race, such as nonracial taunting, might have been involved in the clashes that occurred near the fairgrounds.

What Was That About "Fighting Them Over There"...

Islamic radicals are seizing on protests against a planned Islamic community center near Manhattan's Ground Zero and anti-Muslim rhetoric elsewhere as a propaganda opportunity and are stepping up anti-U.S. chatter and threats on their websites.

One jihadist site vowed to conduct suicide bombings in Florida to avenge a threatened Koran burning, while others predicted an increase in terrorist recruits as a result of such actions.

"By Allah, the wars are heated and you Americans are the ones who…enflamed it," says one such posting. "By Allah you will be the first to taste its flames."

The World Of Light...

One of the interesting side affects of contemplating, writing or commenting on the issue of Europe and her people’s identity is the general awareness it awakens in one in regard to the wide world around us. Accepting the reality of race and its impact on actions and events makes the world smaller in the sense that it becomes more understandable. But simultaneously it becomes much larger than it might initially have been thought. And with that realization comes the need/urge to explore that larger world whose depth and richness so exceeds by every measure the shallow rubric of “one race, the human race”. The promoters of that particular monotony, having locked themselves away in the dark corridors of their egalitarian universities/dungeons to listen only to their own echoes, would never accept nor could ever comprehend the true diversity of the world.

When you walk out into the light of day and embrace the world as it is, what one begins to grasp, for example, is that to say ‘a tree is a tree’ is a bit of a misleading and tragic casual, modern, nomenclature. A pine tree and an oak may both be called trees, yet only the dull of mind, heart and understanding would not see that they are in may ways as different as one species is from another. And if you cannot understand or are not willing to see and accept those differences, then for you a pine tree does not exist. It does not live and it does not die. It does not grow needle like leaves instead of the lush leaves of the oak and it does not bear the cones that adorn many a Christmas wreath. What a small and pitiful worldview that must be.

For those of us who have accepted and embraced the world as it is, the world is alive with color and meaning. It is full of characters, opposing ideas, varying places and interesting people. For us, Germany is a place second and a people first. The same is true of England, Scotland, France, Japan, Mongolia etc. These are not simply zip codes but living organisms. They have as distinct a history and personality as the individuals who collectively compose them. And that is an important point that those who embrace reality understand. A people do not inhabit a nation, they compose one. If the people of Ireland were to pack up and move, en mass, to central Asia, then Ireland would be in Asia and not on that little island next to Britain.

Accepting reality leads to initial realization (with a capital R), of people, places and things. Once that has commenced that initial understanding expands and the thought processes kick into high gear as reality reveals her depths and complex dimensions.

To be willing, and able, to partake in a discussion on race and reality you must engage, to one degree or another, science, sociology, geography, anthropology, history, math (demographics), archeology, biology, theology, folklore and so on. You must withdraw yourself from the shell that the “one race, the human race” anti-philosophy puts you in. And though many who have endured the universities/dungeons of The Left have been taught to fear the real world, the truth is once you shed that fear and leave your
equalitarian shell, you will find the light of the real world a brilliant revelation of color and contrast and the fresh air of truth to be like a mountain spring in a lifeless desert.

The result is that you end up engaging the world about you in ways that our critics and detractors can seldom grasp but only envy. For, as was said earlier, from the reality-embracing view of the race-realist, a place or people becomes not merely a name or spot on a map, but living, breathing things with attributes and characteristics all their own. Thus the dull gray colors of the egalitarian world are shattered and turn to ash. Life outside that shell literally becomes magnified for the race-realist, as we have embraced and accepted the vivid colors and contours of the environment about us. The blue sky looks bluer than ever before and the fact that it is blue holds more meaning. Grass, rocks, sand and water become more real because we are more willingly aware of their distinct attributes in that those attributes make them distinct of their own make and design and purpose.

And people!

For the race-realist people are more unique and special when seen as both individuals AND as representatives of a particular group. A person standing and viewed outside of the context of his natural race/people and their unique history and character is like a sentiment expressed in a vacuum of time and space; real but without function or form, quality or meaning.

Let there be no doubt about it, the rewards of such an authentic worldview are numerous in their benefits to mental and physical health. To be, not merely an individual, but a member of a race gives you a greater sense of your place in the world and the world’s history. For it is not enough to say that you know who you are, but to know why (and how) you are gives shape to that meaning. Mr. Smith may say that he is Mr. Smith, but to know why and how he came to be born, where and when he was, illuminates his sense of being. A man without a history is a man lost in the present. And history does not, cannot, be limited to the space and time into which each individual occupies. For no man is an island in place, nor in time.

We are not born anew every moment. We have one birth and the blood in our veins shapes the content of our character and reflects the reality of all those ancestors who have gone before us. Blood is the chain that links one generation to the next and gives meaning to the trials and struggles of those who went before us.

Therefore judging a man for what he is, and not who you wish him to be is the gateway to truly knowing and understanding that person. It should go without saying that each person you meet for the first time is not created in the moment they meet you. They have a history and personality independent of your own personal ideals or projections. So do races and ethnic groups.

In natural terms, an oak leaf does not form on its own, but is part of a tree which existed long before each leaf and will go on being long after each one has fallen. Truly, every leaf is connected to individual branches, which are in turn connected to individual trees which, themselves, are connected to a single space of land in a particular country on a certain continent and within certain space in time, though their time is not determined of their own accord but dependent upon the fall of the proverbial acorn from another tree to which each tree owes its descent and likeness. The leaf that leaves its place and mingles with the other leaves on the forest floor has died or is dying.

Indeed, it is an instructional paradox that the beauty one associates with the colorfulness of autumn is actually an indicator that winter is approaching and nature’s death is near. Let the lesson be learned then; societies, like nature, are at their most diverse before they die.

And we, like the rest of nature, are not self-forming entities without a historical (genetically distinct) context. In fact you might say that race, in many ways, is a modern word for heritage. We are extensions of the branches to which we cling for substance, for life, for history and for place. Those extensions link us not only to the present life but the past as well.

In short, to deny race (which is to say, heritage) is to embrace death before your time. It is to cast yourself into the winter winds, cut off from that which gives you life and thus gives your life meaning and shape, both in place and in time.

More than that, to embrace racialism and its complimentary components is, in many ways, like attending the universities of old where scholastics were broad and deep but never vexed the imagination nor dimmed the light into which knowledge and understanding were pursued.

For those of us who have attended its classes, Race Reality allows us the freedom to discuss and consider political viewpoints ranging from fascism to Marxism. It gives us the freedom to debate the pros and cons of religion, various aesthetics, architecture, music, culture and so on without fear of offence. Indeed, in the university of Race Reality we are given the encouragement to look for truth, not as an abstract but as an absolute (make no mistake, confusion, doubt and uncertainty are chains that confine understanding and knowledge).

Egalitarianism and the doctrinization of equality have stagnated Western civilization because they have, through necessity of their own ideological prisms, suppressed free thought and imprisoned all manner of descent. They have made sacred the illegality of the pursuit of truth. They have left their students/disciples crippled and blinded in the dungeon of Political Correctness where the truth of life cannot shatter their delusions of a world without light AND darkness, beauty AND ugliness, truth AND lies, the present AND the past.

So here we stand. The university of racial reality vs. the university of “equality”. The university of racial reality embraces and engages the world because it accepts it for what it is, warts and all. The university of equality hides itself from the world, choosing to become
deaf, dumb and blind to nature’s multitude of inequalities because, to them, they are frightening and evil because they are eternally challenging their false assumptions.

But there is hope for such.

For the dark PC dungeons in which they reside are easy to escape. All it takes it the willingness to follow the light, and a desire to engage the world.

Re-Up (The More Things Change)...

It looks like the circus and childish antics are rearing their ugly head once again in Albany.

It started as an angry blow-up, and then it escalated. A state senator with a history of anger management issues says his race-based rant was part of his fight against the "evil of white supremacy."

Brooklyn State Senator Kevin Parker is a well-documented hothead, and on Wednesday he took to the airwaves to unapologetically defend his latest shouting match.

"It's par for the course for what we have to do in Albany – fighting the forces of evil," Senator Parker said.

Parker shockingly identified the "enemies" he's fighting as other senators.

"These long-term, white supremacist, you know, Republican senators," he said.

That followed a free-for-all shouting match in Albany Tuesday where Parker heatedly objected to the questions asked by a white senator, John DeFrancisco of Syracuse, of a black nominee to the New York State Power Authority.

Ahem,



'In 1873, James Shepherd Pike, a veteran anti-slavery journalist from Maine, was dispatched to South Carolina by the New York Tribune to report on the status of that State's Reconstruction government. The articles Pike sent back to New York were published in book form the following year as The Prostrate State. Pike represented South Carolina's government as being politically corrupt and extravagant with public funds. The State, said Pike, was under the control of "a mass of black barbarism... the most ignorant democracy that mankind ever saw." Pike's observations served to increase the growing Northern sympathy for the downtrodden White population of the former Confederate States and helped pave the way for the return of home rule to the South.'

Jefferson...

"It will probably be asked, Why not retain and incorporate the blacks into the state, and thus save the expense of supplying, by importation of white settlers, the vacancies they will leave? Deep rooted prejudices entertained by the whites; ten thousand recollections, by the blacks, of the injuries they have sustained; new provocations; the real distinctions which nature has made; and many other circumstances, will divide us into parties, and produce convulsions, which will probably never end but in the extermination of the one or the other race. To these objections, which are political, may be added others, which are physical and moral.


The first difference which strikes us is that of colour. Whether the black of the negro resides in the reticular membrane between the skin and scarf-skin, or in the scarf-skin itself; whether it proceeds from the colour of the blood, the colour of the bile, or from that of some other secretion, the difference is fixed in nature, and is as real as if its seat and cause were better known to us. And is this difference of no importance? Is it not the foundation of a greater or less share of beauty in the two races? Are not the fine mixtures of red and white, the expressions of every passion by greater or less suffusions of colour in the one, preferable to that eternal monotony, which reigns in the countenances, that immovable veil of black which covers all the emotions of the other race? Add to these, flowing hair, a more elegant symmetry of form, their own judgment in favour of the whites, declared by their preference of them, as uniformly as is the preference of the Oranootan for the black women over those of his own species.


The circumstance of superior beauty, is thought worthy attention in the propagation of our horses, dogs, and other domestic animals; why not in that of man? Besides those of colour, figure, and hair, there are other physical distinctions proving a difference of race. They have less hair on the face and body. They secrete less by the kidneys, and more by the glands of the skin, which gives them a very strong and disagreeable odour. This greater degree of transpiration renders them more tolerant of heat, and less so of cold than the whites. Perhaps too a difference of structure in the pulmonary apparatus, which a late ingenious experimentalist has discovered to be the principal regulator of animal heat, may have disabled them from extricating, in the act of inspiration, so much of that fluid from the outer air, or obliged them in expiration, to part with more of it. They seem to require less sleep. A black after hard labour through the day, will be induced by the slightest amusements to sit up till midnight, or later, though knowing he must be out with the first dawn of the morning. They are at least as brave, and more adventuresome. But this may perhaps proceed from a want of forethought, which prevents their seeing a danger till it be present. When present, they do not go through it with more coolness or steadiness than the whites.


They are more ardent after their female: but love seems with them to be more an eager desire, than a tender delicate mixture of sentiment and sensation. Their griefs are transient. Those numberless afflictions, which render it doubtful whether heaven has given life to us in mercy or in wrath, are less felt, and sooner forgotten with them. In general, their existence appears to participate more of sensation than reflection. To this must be ascribed their disposition to sleep when abstracted from their diversions, and unemployed in labour. An animal whose body is at rest, and who does not reflect, must be disposed to sleep of course. Comparing them by their faculties of memory, reason, and imagination, it appears to me that in memory they are equal to the whites; in reason much inferior, as I think one could scarcely be found capable of tracing and comprehending the investigations of Euclid; and that in imagination they are dull, tasteless, and anomalous. It would be unfair to follow them to Africa for this investigation.

We will consider them here, on the same stage with the whites, and where the facts are not apocryphal on which a judgment is to be formed. It will be right to make great allowances for the difference of condition, of education, of conversation, of the sphere in which they move. Many millions of them have been brought to, and born in America. Most of them indeed have been confined to tillage, to their own homes, and their own society: yet many have been so situated, that they might have availed themselves of the conversation of their masters; many have been brought up to the handicraft arts, and from that circumstance have always been associated with the whites. Some have been liberally educated, and all have lived in countries where the arts and sciences are cultivated to a considerable degree, and have had before their eyes samples of the best works from abroad. The Indians, with no advantages of this kind, will often carve figures on their pipes not destitute of design and merit. They will crayon out an animal, a plant, or a country, so as to prove the existence of a germ in their minds which only wants cultivation.


They astonish you with strokes of the most sublime oratory; such as prove their reason and sentiment strong, their imagination glowing and elevated. But never yet could I find that a black had uttered a thought above the level of plain narration; never saw even an elementary trait of painting or sculpture. In music they are more generally gifted than the whites with accurate ears for tune and time, and they have been found capable of imagining a small catch.

Whether they will be equal to the composition of a more extensive run of melody, or of complicated harmony, is yet to be proved. Misery is often the parent of the most affecting touches in poetry. Among the blacks is misery enough, God knows, but no poetry. Love is the peculiar oestrum of the poet. Their love is ardent, but it kindles the senses only, not the imagination. Religion indeed has produced a Phyllis Whately but it could not produce a poet. The compositions published under her name are below the dignity of criticism. The heroes of the Dunciad are to her, as Hercules to the author of that poem. Ignatius Sancho has approached nearer to merit in composition; yet his letters do more honour to the heart than the head. They breathe the purest effusions of friendship and general philanthropy, and show how great a degree of the latter may be compounded with strong religious zeal. He is often happy in the turn of his compliments, and his style is easy and familiar, except when he affects a Shandean fabrication of words. But his imagination is wild and extravagant, escapes incessantly from every restraint of reason and taste, and, in the course of its vagaries, leaves a tract of thought as incoherent and eccentric, as is the course of a meteor through the sky. His subjects should often have led him to a process of sober reasoning: yet we find him always substituting sentiment for demonstration.


Upon the whole, though we admit him to the first place among those of his own colour who have presented themselves to the public judgment, yet when we compare him with the writers of the race among whom he lived and particularly with the epistolary class, in which he has taken his own stand, we are compelled to enrol him at the bottom of the column. This criticism supposes the letters published under his name to be genuine, and to have received amendment from no other hand; points which would not be of easy investigation.

The improvement of the blacks in body and mind, in the first instance of their mixture with the whites, has been observed by every one, and proves that their inferiority is not the effect merely of their condition of life. We know that among the Romans, about the Augustan age especially, the condition of their slaves was much more deplorable than that of the blacks on the continent of America. The two sexes were confined in separate apartments, because to raise a child cost the master more than to buy one. Cato, for a very restricted indulgence to his slaves in this particular, took from them a certain price. But in this country the slaves multiply as fast as the free inhabitants.


Their situation and manners place the commerce between the two sexes almost without restraint. The same Cato, on a principle of economy, always sold his sick and superannuated slaves. He gives it as a standing precept to a master visiting his farm, to sell his old oxen, old wagons, old tools, old and diseased servants, and every thing else become useless.... The American slaves cannot enumerate this among the injuries and insults they receive. It was the common practice to expose in the island Esculapius, in the Tyber, diseased slaves, whose cure was like to become tedious. The emperor Claudius, by an edict, gave freedom to such of them as should recover, and first declared that if any person chose to kill rather than expose them, it should be deemed homicide. The exposing them is a crime of which no instance has existed with us; and were it to be followed by death, it would be punished capitally. We are told of a certain Vedius Pollio, who, in the presence of Augustus, would have given a slave as food to his fish, for having broken a glass. With the Romans, the regular method of taking the evidence of their slaves was under torture. Here it has been thought better never to resort to their evidence. When a master was murdered, all his slaves, in the same house, or within hearing, were condemned to death. Here punishment falls on the guilty only, and as precise proof is required against him as against a freeman. Yet notwithstanding these and other discouraging circumstances among the Romans, their slaves were often their rarest artists. They excelled too in science, insomuch as to be usually employed as tutors to their masters’ children. Epictetus, Terence, and Phaedrus, were slaves. But they were of the race of whites.


It is not their condition then, but nature, which has produced the distinction. Whether further observation will or will not verify the conjecture, that nature has been less bountiful to them in the endowments of the head, I believe that in those of the heart she will be found to have done them justice. That disposition to theft with which they have been branded, must be ascribed to their situation, and not to any depravity of the moral sense. The man, in whose favour no laws of property exist, probably feels himself less bound to respect those made in favour of others. When arguing for ourselves, we lay it down as a fundamental, that laws, to be just, must give a reciprocation of right; that, without this, they are mere arbitrary rules of conduct, founded in force, and not in conscience: and it is a problem which I give to the master to solve, whether the religious precepts against the violation of property were not framed for him as well as his slave? And whether the slave may not as justifiably take a little from one, who has taken all from him, as he may slay one who would slay him? That a change in the relations in which a man is placed should change his ideas of moral right or wrong, is neither new, nor peculiar to the colour of the blacks. Homer tells us it was so 2600 years ago. Jove fix’d it certain, that whatever day makes man a slave, takes half his worth away.

But the slaves of which Homer speaks were whites. Notwithstanding these considerations which must weaken their respect for the laws of property, we find among them numerous instances of the most rigid integrity, and as many as among their better instructed masters, of benevolence, gratitude and unshaken fidelity. The opinion, that they are inferior in the faculties of reason and imagination, must be hazarded with great diffidence. To justify a general conclusion, requires many observations, even where the subject may be submitted to the anatomical knife, to optical classes, to analysis by fire, or by solvents. How much more then where it is a faculty, not a substance, we are examining; where it eludes the research of all the Senses; where the conditions of its existence are various and variously combined; where the effects of those which are present or absent bid defiance to calculation; let me add too, as a circumstance of great tenderness, where our conclusion would degrade a whole race of men from the rank in the scale of beings which their Creator may perhaps have given them. To our reproach it must be said, that though for a century and a half we have had under our eyes the races of black and of red men, they have never yet been viewed by us as subjects of natural history. I advance it therefore as a suspicion only, that the blacks, whether originally a distinct race, or made distinct by time and circumstances, are inferior to the whites in the endowments both of body and mind. It is not against experience to suppose, that different Species of the same genus, or varieties of the same species, may possess different qualifications. Will not a lover of natural history then, one who views the gradations in all the races of animals with the eye of philosophy, excuse an effort to keep those in the department of man as distinct as nature has formed them? This unfortunate difference of colour, and perhaps of faculty, is a powerful obstacle to the emancipation of these people. Many of their advocates, while they wish to vindicate the liberty of human nature are anxious also to preserve its dignity and beauty. Some of these, embarrassed by the question “What further is to be done with them?” join themselves in opposition with those who are actuated by sordid avarice only. Among the Romans emancipation required but one effort. The slave, when made free, might mix with, without staining the blood of his master. But with us a second is necessary, unknown to history. When freed, he is to be removed beyond the reach of mixture.

The particular customs and manners that may happen to be received in that state? It is difficult to determine on the standard by which the manners of a nation may be tried, whether catholic, or particular. It is more difficult for a native to bring to that standard the manners of his own nation, familiarized to him by habit. There must doubtless be an unhappy influence on the manners of our people produced by the existence of slavery among us. The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading submissions on the other. Our children see this, and learn to imitate it; for man is an imitative animal. This quality is the germ of all education in him. From his cradle to his grave he is learning to do what he sees others do. If a parent could find no motive either in his philanthropy or his self love, for restraining the intemperance of passion towards his slave, it should always be a sufficient one that his child is present. But generally it is not sufficient.


The parent storms, the child looks on, catches the lineaments of wrath, puts on the same airs in the circle of smaller slaves, gives a loose to the worst of passions, and thus nursed, educated, and daily exercised in tyranny, cannot but be stamped by it with odious pecularities. The man must be a prodigy who can retain his manners and morals undepraved by such circumstances. And with what execration should the statesman be loaded, who, permitting one half the citizens thus to trarnple on the rights of the other, transforms those into despots, and these into enemies, destroys the morals of the one part, and the amor patriae of the other. For if a slave can have a country in this world, it must be any other in preference to that in which he is born to live and labour for another; in which he must lock up the faculties of his nature, contribute as far as depends on his individual endeavours to the evanishment of the human race, or entail his own miserable condition on the endless generations proceeding from him. With the morals of the people, their industry also is destroyed. For in a warm climate, no man will labour for himself who can make another labour for him. This is so true, that of the proprietors of slaves a very small proportion indeed are ever seen to labour. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever: that considering numbers, nature and natural means only, a revolution of the wheel of fortune, an exchange of situation is among possible events: that it may become probable by supernatural interference! The almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in such a contest. But it is impossible to be temperate and to pursue this subject through the various considerations of policy, of morals, of history natural and civil. We must be contented to hope they will force their way into every one’s mind. I think a change already perceptible, since the origin of the present revolution. The spirit of the master is abating, that of the slave rising from the dust, his condition mollifying, the way I hope preparing, under the auspices of heaven, for a total emancipation, and that this is disposed, in the order of events, to be with the consent of the masters, rather than by their extirpation."

-Thomas Jefferson

Back To Front....

The killers came for Mayor Cavazos in the early hours of Aug. 16 when seven SUV's rolled up and men in police uniforms descended on his palatial home. Servants stood back terrified, as their boss was forced away at gunpoint. On Aug. 18, his corpse was dumped on a nearby road. There was a mercy of sorts in the manner of his killing - shot dead with two bullets in the head and one in the chest, and spared the mutilation and rape inflicted on so many other victims.

...


Then on Aug. 20, more disturbing news broke. State agents arrested six of the mayor's own police officers and said they confessed to involvement in the murder. The suspects had been working for a drug cartel that is fighting a bloody turf war with its rival throughout northeast Mexico, state prosecutors said. Another four alleged gunmen were arrested with automatic rifles and grenade launchers in their possession and accused of being involved in the plot. The revelation had very concerning implications: in Mexico's drug war, officials are now killing officials.

The Issue...

Many conservatives and Christians are "concerned" right now over the gay marriage issue.

Which is ironic. And hypocritical.

At WorldNetDaily mystery meat editor David Kupelian wonders 'why conservatives are abandoning the gay issue'.

A long article later, he has no real answer.

I do.

Kupelian writes,

Can you imagine what would have happened had a judge ruled in 1810 instead of 2010 – two centuries ago – that it's perfectly fine for men to marry men? The probable outcome would have been: A) He would have been impeached – before lunch – and that's if he were lucky. B) If he were not lucky, he would have been challenged to a duel, or C) he would have been so fearful of the outraged population that he would have slipped out of town on an early stagecoach, never to be heard from again.



Well Dave, can you imagine what would have happened had a judge in 1810 ruled that blacks and Whites could marry one another?

Or turn it around.

What would the reaction of the Christian right be in 2010 if a judge ruled that interracial marriage was illegal?

People like Kupelian would quickly denounce it.

And yet, up until the 1960's every generation of Christians in America held interracial marriage to be obscene and against God's design. They passed laws in their states to make it illegal. Then the courts stepped in and overruled the will of the people.

Even beyond, up until (circa) 1990 the majority of Christians still held that interracial marriage was unnatural and were generally unwilling to marry such "couples".

But, with the weight of the State (courts, schools, politicians) and the Media, people's natural sense of right & wrong was beat down and worn down until finally, today, 90% of Christians make no objections to it.


And that is the answer to Kupelian's question of why conservatives are abandoning the gay issue. They know the left has a trump card they pull out at will. They can remind conservative Christians that conservative Christians once opposed interracial marriage.....and did so on scriptural ground and an appeal to God's natural design.

There's nothing the Christian can say against that point.

If they claim their objection is based on scripture, the left will point out that so was opposition to interracial marriage.

And 40 years from now their Christian grandchildren will declare with absolute conviction that there never was a biblical justification for anti-homosexual attitudes. That it was just a reflection of the bias of the era and that their grandparents views were "products of the time".




Compromising on conviction ALWAYS leads to hypocrisy.

And the hypocrite is quickly brushed off and ignored.

From the New York Times:
Wide Variety of Breeds Born of Few Genes
By SINDYA N. BHANOO

Spaniels have notably floppy ears, basset hounds have extremely short legs, and St. Bernards are large and big boned. Not to mention Chihuahuas.

Humans have bred dogs to produce tremendous variety. But a new study reports that the physical variance among dog breeds is determined by differences in only about seven genetic regions.

These seven locations in the dog genome explain about 80 percent of the differences in height and weight among breeds, said Carlos Bustamante, a geneticist at Stanford University and one of the study’s authors. The findings, published in Public Library of Science-Biology, are a result of what is the largest genotyping of dogs to date, involving more than 1,000 dogs and 80 breeds.

So, in the big picture, Labrador retrievers and pit bulls don't actually differ very much genetically. They do differ genetically on a very small number of genes. But some of those few genes that differ are related to biting. Labs tend to retract their teeth and gum whatever they're handling with their mouths, while pit bulls tend to bite down and, more unusually, not let go while they whip their heads back and forth. So, that tiny, tiny fraction of the dog genome is important when deciding which breed of dog to buy depending on your needs -- e.g., pet for your toddlers or guard dog for your crack stash.

Doggone Reality Anyway!

Despite thousands of teacher layoffs and shrinking school budgets, Los Angeles Unified, the state’s largest school system, posted gains on annual standardized tests. Schools statewide also posted overall gains in results released Monday.

The rising scores brought generally good news concerning various reform efforts underway in L.A. Unified, including at Locke High School and at 12 schools overseen by L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Schools still under direct district control also showed gains, some of them larger than the higher-profile efforts touted as superior to what the district could accomplish.

As in past years, the local and statewide gains are incremental. For the most part, low-performing schools are still low-performing and vast achievement gaps remain between low-income black and Latino students and their white and Asian counterparts. Black students are faring the worst.

{snip}

Black students in California improved their proficiency rates but remain the lowest-scoring racial group, with 32% proficient in math and 39% proficient in English.

“We have been unsuccessful in narrowing the achievement gap as much as we really have to,” said Deb Sigman, the state’s deputy superintendent of schools. “We must do a better job.”

Charity Never Leaves Home...

There is an old, outdated saying that goes, “Charity begins at home”. I say outdated because, obviously, today charity begins at least a thousand miles from home. Whether it is flying half-way around the world to bring their self-righteous selves to the savages or just simply bringing the savages back home, the missionaries and charitable types love to seek out those who are least like themselves and take the opportunity to bask in their own benevolence.

And to note, I use the word “savage” in the true spirit of these people who travel about the globe and dazzle various primitives with their presence. After all, charity automatically requires one person to be in a superior position and another to be in an inferior position.

No wonder then that the most charitable people often strike us as the most arrogant and pompous. So referring to the beneficiaries of such self-aggrandizing types as savages or primitives is only done in deference to the social vantage point the aggrandizers enjoy.

Actually, this kind of super-charity (as opposed to the kind that flows naturally back and forth between peoples of similar racial, social and cultural standings) finds its greatest acts of giving through indirect compulsory sacrifice on the part of others. For example, if you and your church/charity arrange to bring a savage into America, you are, through force and cohesion, compelling other members of your community into giving as well. Their taxes and resources will be automatically re-distributed to the savage through healthcare, education, housing and so on. This also happens when tax dollars are sent abroad for charitable purposes.

This, then, is not the community giving but rather the charitable taking. Thus charity has now become an act of aggression which ultimately leads to the despoiling and plundering of communities and (eventually) nations.

We can see this playing out in places like California where dozens of hospitals have been closed due to the financial strain caused by the rapid influx of the poor and needy from Latin America. Or in once peaceful neighborhoods turned into violence-filled ghettos. Or in the spread across the nation of new and renewed (once defeated) diseases. It can also be seen in Africa where charity (in the form of food and medicine supplied by The West) has allowed/facilitated the already violent and starving populations of dysfunctional nations to explode, increasing the violence and poverty by a factor of ten.

This modern mutation of charity has appeared in two separate yet markedly similar groups: White liberals and White Christians. Both groups have a strong compulsion to send other people’s tax dollars across the sea to non-Whites while at the same time importing other non-Whites into the West, compelling the rest of us to fork over even more tax dollars to pay for their housing, medical care, education and (probably later) imprisonment. They are two groups with the same Achilles’ heel.

Narcissism!

I once saw a documentary in which a young man described his aspiration towards rock-stardom and what he hoped that would bring to him. He said, roughly, “I’d like to be a famous rock-star so I could, like, go visit some sick kid in a hospital who’s dying wish was to meet me.”

That completely sums up the motivation for White Christian/Liberal Charity. Egotistically, the sky is the limit! It’s amazing how much moral superiority an act of overt humbleness can generate.

And, of course, Corporate America loves this kind of “charity”. In fact, its motivations and cost-displacement mirrors the White Christian/Liberal. It imports cheap labor which works at half the wage citizens do while transferring the costs onto those very same citizens (taxpayers) in the form of, yes, housing, medical care, education and (probably later) imprisonment.

Adding to all of this are the people who are seemingly hypnotized by the concept of The Poor.

U.S. a Place of Miracles for Somali Refugees

TUCSON — The white wooden door swung open and the dazed African villagers stepped into their new home. It was a modest apartment with secondhand furniture and a stove in need of repairs. But to Osman Yarrow, his wife and five children, refugees from Somalia’s civil war, it seemed like a place of miracles.

Clean water coursed out of gleaming faucets, an astonishing luxury for a rural family who had spent more than a decade in mud huts without indoor plumbing. “Red for hot,” Mr. Yarrow repeated wonderingly as he held his fingers in the steady stream. “Blue for cold.”

There were flush toilets instead of pit latrines and beds instead of straw mats. But what Mr. Yarrow treasured most on his first day in his American home was a sense of security. In Somalia, he witnessed the execution of his father and son by marauding militias. In Kenya, his family huddled in bleak refugee camps while bullets sang in the night.

Here, he listened to the squeals of his children and the hum of a contraption called an air conditioner. “We will sleep without hearing gunshots,” he said. “We’re finally living in a safe place.”

Mr. Yarrow, 40, represents the changing face of America’s refugees. Since May, more than 200 members of his tribe, the Somali Bantu, have been flown to 22 cities across the United States, the first wave of one of the government’s largest recent refugee resettlement efforts.

By the end of next year, officials plan to resettle nearly 13,000 Bantu, who were enslaved and persecuted for generations in Somalia until civil war scattered them to desolate and violent refugee camps in Kenya in the early 1990’s.

Now, needless to say, there are people less fortunate than others. But what I am speaking of is The Poor, not a fact of global economic life but a spiritual condition: those who, in the mind of the White Christian/Liberal, have no other quality but being The Poor. Never are The Poor the present or future thieves, drug-dealers, rapists, murderers and crack-whores who we see in real life as comprising the permanent underclass. Never do White Christians/Liberals think of what hideous abuses and atrocious behaviors they will likely enable when they “give to The Poor”.

Nope, to the White Christian/Liberal the means justify the ends. And if that involves importing a group of refugees from a ramshackle country who will, once here, go about raping and/or killing American citizens, well then, so be it. For the White Christian/Liberal, that warm fuzzy feeling of “having done the right thing”, of having procured the requisite satisfaction with self, is far more important than some rape or murder on the distant horizon.

Ironically, and even when they are sincere, White Christians/Liberals are replacing themselves by bringing refugees into the West and aiding population growth in the Third World. Their beneficiaries do not share their charitable inclinations. The White Christian/Liberal has no non-White counterpart.

So what of healthy, in-group altruism? Obviously, it replaces the narcissistic version with a more general notion of paying into the pot from which we will all draw a wage of comfort one day. The cost stays with the giver … or volunteer, since volunteering is a highly sincere form of in-group altruism. In this, the more alike two individuals are the more honest the exchange of assistance will be. Historically, when two parties of dissimilar race/ethnicity engage in assistance, it more often than not leads to usury.

Reciprocity is beautiful. Helping and aiding those of your own kind ensures greater community harmony and a better chance for the spread of your genes which those of your kindred will share.

Assistance given to those outside of your own kind, meanwhile, provides no physical benefit to the giver. In fact the dispersal of aid to those outside your own group diminishes such resources amongst kindred peoples and, therefore, is detrimental to the community.

In the strongest terms possible Charity is, at best, plain old fashion hubris and at worst a deep seated pathology. The White Christian/Liberal will drive past their local nursing homes, homeless shelters, etc, where far too many elderly Whites wither away poor, sick and alone, and head for the airport to fly off to exotic locales to find someone more deserving (non-Whites) of their glorious selves.

Charity then, if it is to be motivated by anything other than narcissism and arrogance, must not only begin at home but stay at home. But since the very concept behind the word will always appeal to the pride of fools, it doubtless never will. Arrogance will nurture it till it bears its ultimate fruit, the desolation of Western communities. And that is hardly hyperbole, since we can see that very thing happening to the West, and a portion of the despoiling of our nation at the hands of non-Whites has been justified in the name of charity.

And so there is a contemporary analysis of the motivations of the modern manifestation of the Charitable. Their actions are not done in the name of love, kindness, mercy or benevolence, for those are gifts that can never be given to strangers but, with a sincere heart, only to those of your own kin. Their actions are done with as much societal pomp as possible to adorn their own self-image, while the civilization that raised them up slides into a semi-functional state.

In conclusion … if you have something with which you can afford to part, then give it only to those whom you know (as in close friends and family) ... and those who you know will actually need it, and will use it well.

Winston Smith Is On The Ball...

Neighbors of a house that appears to belong to the suspected serial stabber— who was earlier identified as Elias Abuelazam—say the man moved into his home a month to a month and a half ago.

{snip}

“It’s a little bit scary knowing that I was two houses down from a possible serial stabber,” said Taylor Strang, 20, of Flint.

Her mother, Carrie Strang, 43, said she had seen a green blazer in the driveway, one that fit the police description of the vehicle.

Carrie Strang, who woke up this morning to find state police cars outside, said she didn’t contact authorities because he was a dark Middle Eastern man and the description said he was white.

El Mayberrio...

The images of weapons stockpiles and drug-cartel mayhem may not be coming from Mexican and southern U.S. border cities much longer, according to experts who say the continuing criminal enterprises are moving north, and already have reached both Middle America and the nation's northern perimeter.

...

"We've gone from a few weapons to body armor, grenades, automatic weapons, enough weapons to equip a small army. They're operating with well-operated supply lines that are bringing in weapons and drugs," he said.

....

"They're using our highways to get drugs from the U.S.-Mexican border throughout the United States. One of the largest meth labs ever busted in the United States was in a suburb of Atlanta and run by a one of the bigger Mexican cartels," she added.

"I believe another incident happened in 2009 in a well-to-do Alabama county where a sheriff came across five dead bodies. This is in a place where they may find five bodies in a year, but he found those in one day in this tiny, little Alabama town and it was because of Mexican drug activity," she said.

"Whether it's meth labs being run by drug cartels, or the selling of drugs on street corners by gang members. This is happening across the country. You can be living in a suburban community and there can be a safe house on a cul-de-sac around the corner from you," Longmire observed.

Longmire adds that this activity cuts at the very fabric of the United States.

"This happens in the United States in our own country and it affects the very fabric of our national security that this type of thing is going on under our noses and people have a right to know so they can work to make their community safer," Longmire said.

"Culture War"...

There are those on the right fighting in the "culture war" who assert that Political Correctness is one of their foes.

Ironically, it is political correct to refer to a Race War as a "culture war".

And make no mistake, that's what the "culture war" is.

For example,


when the the left (via Hollywood) wants to teach us about the dangers of, say, stereotyping, they always choose for their antagonists, either rich White people, middle-class White people or poor rural White people (so much for "class warfare" as well).

Funny, that.

It takes a stereotypical White man to illustrate the dangers of stereotyping.

Folly Of The Pen...

Contemporary uses of the word “racism” are explored in the crisply-written new book Racism, Schmacism: How Liberals Use the “R” Word to Push the Obama Agenda by James Edwards, the young host of the weekly radio talk show The Political Cesspool.

Edwards himself is certainly a doubleplusungoodthinker in that he unashamedly looks at things from the point of view of whites, although he describes himself as a paleoconservative rather than a “white nationalist”. This of course means that his show has been denounced as a “hate” group by the Southern Poverty Law Center ($PLC to VDARE.COM). The Political Cesspool recently became an issue in the bitter Arizona GOP Senate primary, when Sheriff Paul Babeu, the stooge in Senator John McAmnesty’s hilarious conscience-rupturing "build the dang fence" ad, was denounced for appearing on the show and immediately went into a full PC cringe, which the show denounced contemptuously.

But Racism, Schmacism eschews really controversial issues, such the genetics of racial differences. Its work-friendly approach is actually quite similar to, if less high-brow than, Jared Taylor’s 1992 Paved With Good Intentions—which, however, probably would not find a Mainstream publisher today.

Edwards argues that the word “racist” has lost conceptual content:

“It doesn’t matter that you don’t have a hateful bone in your body, or that you believe all people should be treated equally by the law, and civilly by their fellow man, no matter the color of his skin.”

Instead, the definition has become something much simpler:

“It’s been getting increasingly obvious, for years now, that “racist” doesn’t mean someone who hates members of other races and wants to harm them (which is the definition most white people think of when they hear the word). Instead, it has become nothing but a racial slur directed at white people in order to shame us into voting, believing, or behaving a certain way. In other words, liberals and non-whites use the word to “keep us in our place.” And boy, have we learned our place!”[Links added]

....

James Edwards’ final advice is right on target:

“‘Racist’ is simply a slur liberals use against conservative white people. …

“Don’t deny.

“Don’t argue.

“Don’t try to prove you’re not a ‘racist.’

“Just laugh in their face. Then counter-attack. Point out how whites in this country just want a level playing field, and that it is the minority groups who want racist preferences. Tell them they’re obsessed with race instead of what’s best for our country.”

-source


Well, now....unless James Edwards is trying to be particularly clever in the last bit, I woulnd't advise using that argument.
Because the statement itself is exactly the problem.

Whites TODAY (who are around 10% of the world and dropping fast) want a level playing field.

Non-Whites (who are already about 90% of the world's population) do not.



Bottom line,

There is no racial equality so there can never be a "level playing field".






Another book is just another book.

Re-Up (When Minorities Rule)...

I live in Georgia. My congressional representative is Hank Johnson, a Democrat whom I am unafraid to call stupid. In April at a House Armed Services Committee hearing, Johnson expressed genuine concern that sending more personnel to Guam would cause the island to “tip over and capsize.”

...

When Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) asked whether the Mars Pathfinder took pictures of the flag that Neil Armstrong had planted on Mars, the story was gently buried. When Hank Johnson worried about Guam capsizing, that embarrassing li’l blast of “brain fog” was quietly blamed on his Hep-C treatment regimen. But after Greene fathered countless pregnant pauses live on national television, it’s absurd to deny it—Alvin Greene is, as Fred Sanford would say, a dummy. He “takes it to that ‘nother level,” as the blacks are fond of saying.

RACE IS NOT A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT. SOCIETIES ARE RACIAL CONSTRUCTS.



On a side street in an old industrial neighborhood, a delivery man stacks a dolly of goods outside a store. Ten feet away stands another man clad in military fatigues, combat boots and what appears to be a flak jacket. He looks straight out of Baghdad. But this isn't Iraq. It's southeast Detroit, and he's there to guard the groceries.

"No pictures, put the camera down," he yells. My companion and I, on a tour of how people in this city are using urban farms to grow their own food, speed off.

In this recession-racked town, the lack of food is a serious problem. It's a theme that comes up again and again in conversations in Detroit. There isn't a single major chain supermarket in the city...

Probably one of the most emailed-around articles on Election Day was this:

“In western Kenya, relatives, friends and a bull ready for slaughter were massed around the homestead of Barack Obama's late father, awaiting a hoped-for victory for their new favourite son…Leading in US opinion polls over Republican rival John McCain, Obama received some added support in Kenya with special prayer sessions and even a victory prediction from a local witch doctor. [Obama's Kenyan relatives ready bull for slaughter, by Odhiambo Akombo, AFP, November 4, 2008]

If President Obama succeeds in arranging more immigration from Africa, Americans can expect a wide assortment of superstitious behavior that we would find objectionable, to say the least.

In Tanzania, at least 30 albinos have been murdered in the last year because of witchcraft. Their body parts are much desired for sorcery rituals and bring a high price. There is a cross-border trade with Burundi where albinos, including children, are chased down, killed and dismembered. One man was pursued by four armed men and had to hide in the forest for two days.

The purchasers may place a body part near a gold mine to bring the metal to the surface or on a hook as fish bait.

"The killers sell body parts such as arms, legs, hair, skin and genitals, according to police and albino groups.

“Those involved in witchcraft, especially in mining and fishing industries, believe these will enrich them, President Kikwete said last month, calling it a 'stupid belief.'

Local media have reported several incidents of victims left to bleed to death.

'They are cutting us up like chickens,' Msembo said, while pointing to a picture on a wall in her cramped office of a limbless body with the skin on its face peeled off from an incident in 2007." [African albinos killed for body parts, By George Obulutsa, Reuters, November 3, 2008]

As a result, the 200,000 Tanzanian albinos are terrorized and angry that their corpses have become a commodity. In one recent case, a 10-year-old girl was killed and mutilated by a gang to sell the parts.

In Angola and Congo, children are accused surprisingly often of being witches, and often expelled from their families. One investigation counted 432 Angolan street children in a single town who had been accused of witchcraft and turned out.

it was reported in September that accusations of sorcery set off a soccer riot in eastern Congo causing the deaths of 13 people, most of whom were children and teens. [Witchcraft rumor sparks riot at Congo soccer game, AP, September 15, 2008] The blow-up began when one player was suspected of throwing something into the net of the opposing team, which was thought to be "witchcraft." The result was violence and death.

Worse, her case was only the tip of the iceberg.

"An official inquiry into the abuse of African children branded as witches is expected to conclude that there have been at least 50 such cases over five years in London alone.

The investigation is expected to find that cases of sorcery-related abuse are now spreading outside the capital to areas such as Liverpool, Newcastle and parts of Yorkshire—although they remain confined to only a minority of Africans in Britain.

The abuse of the children has ranged from shouting to beating, starving, slashing with knives and razors and, in at least one case, murder." ["Witch child" abuse spreads in Britain, By Jack Grimston Sunday Times, June 25, 2006]

Another shocking murder was "Adam," an unidentified child whose headless torso was found in the Thames in September 2001. The African boy was believed to be between four and six years old and had swallowed a potion containing bone fragments before he died. Investigators concluded that the boy was killed in a ritual murder as a part of African witchcraft. No-one was ever arrested.

After more investigation of missing children in Britain, authorities determined that some 300 black boys aged 4-7 were unaccounted for, leading to fears of widespread child sacrifice. But child protective agencies do not track the many foreign children sent to live in Britain under the care of persons who are not the parents. So the extent of abuse is not really known.

More complicating is the presence of ostensibly Christian churches, populated with African immigrants, which commonly practice exorcisms. ['Exorcisms are part of our culture', By Cindi John BBC News, June 3, 2005]In particular, Congolese and Angolan preachers accept the existence of evil spirits, curses and demonic possession, and weave that belief into their ministries. In some cases, pastors have crossed the line into child abuse in their activities to drive out evil spirits. Social turmoil has been an unfortunate byproduct, with ethnic groups accusing police of racism.

Crime Rates

  • Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
  • When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
  • Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
  • The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.

Interracial Crime

  • Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
  • Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
  • Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
  • Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.

Gangs

  • Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white.
  • Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs. Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are nine times more likely.

Incarceration

  • Between 1980 and 2003 the US incarceration rate more than tripled, from 139 to 482 per 100,000, and the number of prisoners increased from 320,000 to 1.39 million.
  • Blacks are seven times more likely to be in prison than whites. Hispanics are three times more likely.

The table does not gives statistics for Hispanic victims and offenders. But the bottom line on interracial white/black and black/white rape is clear:

In the United States in 2005, 37,460 white females were sexually assaulted or raped by a black man, while between zero and ten black females were sexually assaulted or raped by a white man.

What this means is that every day in the United States, over one hundred white women are raped or sexually assaulted by a black man.

Zimbabwe began officially trading in foreign currency Friday in what is seen as tacit acknowledgment that its own currency has collapsed.
President Robert Mugabe, in power since independence from Britain in 1980, blames Western sanctions for the economic collapse. But critics point to his 2000 order that commercial farms be seized from whites.

A defiant Robert Mugabe has sailed unchallenged through the first test
of his presidency by his peers.


Western leaders from France, the United States and Canada joined
Britain in ratcheting up pressure on the organisation to reject Mr Mugabe’s
authority.


Freshly sworn in after a single candidate election, he received a
leader’s welcome when he strode into the African Union summit in Sharm el-Sheikh
yesterday and emerged unfazed, his authority intact.
He dined at a lavish
luncheon given by his Egyptian hosts, hugged heads of state and other diplomats
in the corridors and stayed at the Peninsula Hotel, one of the most luxurious in
this Red Sea town. “Mr Mugabe is staying there as a courtesy by the Egyptian
Government,” a hotel spokesman said. Delegates from the opposition Movement for
Democratic Change (MDC) lodged at the Sheraton, while their leader, Morgan
Tsvangirai, remained in Zimbabwe.
The African Union’s public response to Mr
Mugabe’s seizure of power was seen as a key measure of the organisation’s
commitment to democracy after Zimbabwe’s violent run-off elections.

Africa at war: The genocide spilling from the Darfur region of Sudan into
neighboring Chad has captured attention in the United States mainly because of
(belated) media coverage and an aggressive advocacy campaign by concerned
groups, but the prospects of Washington dealing with the problem seem slim.
Darfur, however, is only one of a pox of conflicts that, together with HIV/AIDS,
are depopulating parts of Africa and robbing it of potential wealth from
mineral, oil and gas deposits. Wars have also raged in Chad, Congo, Liberia,
Sierra Leone and Somalia. Were it not for the Iraq war, Washington may have
acted to stop what the Bush administration admits is genocide in Darfur, or
taken steps to prevent the chaos sweeping Somalia after a group affiliated with
al-Qaeda took over the country and left Ethiopia no choice but to invade in
hopes of preventing a more disastrous war. Unfortunately, even designating a
small presence of U.S. Special Forces to lead a U.N.-approved peacekeeping force
in Darfur appears beyond the capability of the badly stretched American
military.-

Formerly White ruled South Africa, now in the hands of blacks,
South Africans today are deeply demoralised people. The lights are going out
in homes, mines, factories and shopping malls as the national power authority,
Eskom - suffering from mismanagement, lack of foresight, a failure to maintain
power stations and a flight of skilled engineers to other countries - implements
rolling power cuts that plunge towns and cities into daily chaos.Major
industrial projects are on hold. The only healthy enterprise now worth being
involved in is the sale of small diesel generators to powerless households but
even this business has run out of supplies and spare parts from China.Newly
elected African National Congress (ANC) leader Jacob Zuma, the state
president-in-waiting, narrowly escaped being jailed for raping an HIV-positive
woman last year, and faces trial later this year for soliciting and accepting
bribes in connection with South Africa's shady multi-billion-pound arms deal
with British, German and French weapons manufacturers.Commenting on the massive
power cuts, Trevor Gaunt, professor of electrical engineering at the University
of Cape Town, who warned the government eight years ago of the impending crisis,
said: "The damage is huge, and now South Africa looks just like the rest of
Africa. Maybe it will take 20 years to recover."Last week, for example,
18-year-old Razelle Botha, who passed all her A-levels with marks of more than
90% and was about to train as a doctor, returned home with her father, Professor
Willem Botha, founder of the geophysics department at the University of
Pretoria, from buying pizzas for the family. Inside the house, armed gunmen
confronted them. They shot Professor Botha in the leg and pumped bullets into
Razelle.One severed her spine. Now she is fighting for her life and will never
walk again, and may never become a doctor. The gunmen stole a laptop computer
and a camera.Feeding the perfect storm are the two centres of ANC power in the
country at the moment. On the one hand, there is the ANC in parliament, led by
President Mbeki, who last Friday gave a state-of-the-nation address and
apologised to the country for the power crisis.Mbeki made only the briefest of
mentions of the national Aids crisis, with more than six million people
HIV-positive. He did not address the Scorpions crisis. The collapsing public
hospital system, under his eccentric health minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang,
an alcoholic who recently jumped the public queue for a liver transplant,
received no attention. And the name Jacob Zuma did not pass his lips.Zuma, a
Zulu populist with some 20 children by various wives and mistresses, hoped to
prove that last year's rape case, and the trial he faces this year for
corruption and other charges...-

HARARE (AFP) — Zimbabwe's inflation rate, already the highest in the world,
has soared to a new high of 66,212.3 percent, according to official figures
obtained by AFP on Thursday.Zimbabwe's economy has been on a downturn for the

foodstuffs such as sugar and cooking oil.At least 80 percent of the population
is living below the poverty threshold, often skipping meals to stretch their

Formerly White ruled Kenya, now ruled by blacks,
Several people were beaten and hacked to death with machetes in a Nairobi
slum Sunday in renewed ethnic fighting over Kenya's disputed election, residents
said.Elsewhere, police managed to quell more than two days of fierce fighting
around a Catholic monastery that killed 22 people and left 200 homes burned in
the Rift Valley, 190 miles northwest of the capital Nairobi, officials said.A
government commission says more than 600 people have been killed in violence
that erupted after the Dec. 27...One man staggered past with blood streaming
from the stump of his arm, which had been cut off with a machete. The arm was
taken by a group of youths and placed on top of a pile of stones barricading an
alleyway. In a separate incident, around 50 people attacked welder Dominic
Owour, a 23-year-old Luo, and tried to cut off both his hands at the forearm,
Owour said.Both men said police watching the attacks did not intervene.A local
reporter at the scene counted 14 people dead from machete wounds, three bodies
stuck with arrows and five people shot dead by police.-

Formerly White ruled Congo, now ruled by blacks,
Le Blanc and I are into our 500th kilometer on the river when he turns my
view of modern African history on its head. "We should just give it all back to
the whites," the riverboat captain says. "Even if you go 1,000 kilometers down
this river, you won't see a single sign of development. When the whites left, we
didn't just stay where we were. We went backwards.""The river is the artery of
Congo's economy," he says. "When the Belgians and the Portuguese were here,
there were farms and plantations — cashews, peanuts, rubber, palm oil. There was
industry and factories employing 3,000 people, 5,000 people. But since
independence, no Congolese has succeeded.Around 45,000 people die each month in
the DRC as a result of the social collapse brought on by civil war, according to
a study released in January by the International Rescue Committee. It estimated
the total loss of life between 1998 and April 2007 at 5.4 million. For many
Congolese like Le Blanc, the difficulties of today blot out the cruelties of the
past. "On this river, all that you see — the buildings, the boats — only whites
did that. After the whites left, the Congolese did not work. We did not know how
to. For the past 50 years, we've just declined." He pauses. "They took this
country by force," he says, with more than a touch of admiration. "If they came
back, this time we'd give them the country for free."-

Formerly White ruled Detroit, now ruled by blacks,
Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick took his text message scandal to the Michigan
Supreme Court on Friday, urging justices to strike down decisions from two lower
courts to provide the public with secret documents he used to settle police
whistle-blower lawsuits last year for $8.4 million.The city filed the appeal
under seal, but city law director John E. Johnson Jr. said in a statement the
city asked the high court to consider the same arguments that were rejected
Wednesday by the Michigan Court of Appeals and on Feb. 5 by Wayne County Circuit
Judge Robert Colombo Jr., in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the
Free Press.Councilman Kwame Kenyatta said in a statement, "Either the mayor has
something to hide or he's buying packing time.""When you have two lower courts
going against you, it's pretty rough," said Wayne State University law professor
Peter Henning. "It's any litigant's right to seek review, but it's not a
cost-free decision."He questioned -- as have many council members -- whether the
city Law Department is acting on behalf of the city or just the mayor.-

Formerly White ruled New Orleans, now ruled by blacks,
As District Attorney Eddie Jordan descended last week to his moment of
greatest political vulnerability, a group of prominent business leaders met with
New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin to craft an exit strategy for the beleaguered
prosecutor -- one that chiefly involved giving him a soft landing in a private
sector job, sources familiar with the talk said Tuesday.The unprecedented move
ends a tenure mired in criticism over a widely perceived failure to successfully
prosecute violent criminals, chronic turnover in his office, and most recently
the bizarre disclosure that a robbery suspect fled to Jordan's Algiers house
only to then become a suspect in the shooting of a New Orleans police
officer.Now, Jordan's undoing appears rooted in one of his first official acts:
Systematically firing white employees and replacing them with black applicants
two weeks after taking office. While it's hardly uncommon for politicians to
clean house and install loyalists, a federal jury of eight white and two black
jurors unanimously found that Jordan, who is black, fired 43 employees -- all
white but for one Hispanic -- because of their race.Of 56 total dismissals, 53
of the employees were white. Within six months of his administration, Jordan had
hired 68 people, 92 percent of them African-American. Critics further have
suggested that the firings had the effect of stripping the office of
institutional knowledge and experienced talent, throwing its daily management
into confusion and setting off a trend of poor working conditions and chronic
turnover.This criticism climaxed this summer, when his office dismissed charges
against suspects in the 2006 murders of musician and teacher Dinerral Shavers
and the Central City massacre that left five teenagers dead in the street. Both
cases fell apart, with Jordan claiming uncooperative witnesses.Earlier this
year, Jordan was further lambasted for his office's repeated release of
suspects, even occasionally ones arrested for violent crimes, because his
prosecutors could not make a decision about whether to press charges under the
state mandated deadline. These releases are called "701s," shorthand for Article
701 of the Louisiana Code of Criminal Procedure, which states that no one can be
held longer than 60 days on a felony arrest without an indictment.In the latest
and strangest flare-up, police recently questioned Jordan after robbery suspect
Elton Phillips, 20, allegedly fled to his home after holding up a man outside a
nearby Algiers Shell station.-
