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