Paul Kersey at Stuff Black People Don’t Like has coined the term “Black Run America” to describe the system, and Hunter Wallace at Occidental Dissent has picked it up and used it quite a bit. To any sane person, the extraordinary level of power and privilege black people enjoy makes it seem they do, indeed, run the country.
The White Liberal (perhaps not so disingenuous as Kersey would say) responds, in a loud, menacing voice, “Black people are poor and oppressed! They have high levels of unemployment and imprisonment! Since all people are alike, this can only be because of evil racists like you! Stop being an evil racist, you evil racist!”
When you provoke an angry response with a simple observation, there’s a good chance you have stated an uncomfortable truth. But maybe there is a bit of misdirection going on- as the magician says in his patter, look closely, because the closer you look, the less you see……
The White Liberal stomps off in a huff, occasionally shooting a menacing glare over his shoulder. Thras on the other hand strokes his chin thoughtfully and says, “Well, that guy was a real dick, but you know, maybe he’s right. We know that black people aren’t, as a population, very smart, but on top of that they are very impulsive, have little future orientation, and of course are given to cruelty and violence. Not good characteristics of a people running an advanced post-industrial society are they?”
OK, you admit, black people really aren’t running everything. But they are still very powerful and they are still pulling the strings.
But you know, I can’t concede even that. Leftist thought so permeates our culture that we often can’t see that it’s there. The Great and Powerful Oz has spoken, but who is that man behind the curtain?
Take education. Everyone would agree that education is an ongoing problem in the US. We must improve the educational system. We have tried, and failed, throughout the decades, but we must continue to find solutions to this critical problem. Our society needs educated members to be good voters, good workers, and good all-around citizens.
Actually, no. Education in the white parts of America- the rural north, the far suburbs, the rich city neighborhoods- goes on just fine, or about as well as it can in America, which really isn’t that great. But that is another topic. The problem with education in America is black (and brown) people, who after 50 years of extra help just aren’t getting educated.
Of course, it can’t possibly be that black people aren’t academically inclined, or smart, or diligent, all things that help in becoming educated. The problem is the educational system, which must be improved. More teachers must be hired. More schools must be built. More materials and programs must be purchased. More grants for studies must be made. More education professors must be hired. Yes, it’s expensive, but education is important! We must have good education!
Much of this effort goes to “urban” education, but since this is not- repeat not– a black problem (sarc off), the educational establishment in Montana benefits almost as much as the educational establishment in DC. The same principle applies to the vast government-NGO-QUANGO complex devoted to solving “social” problems- “social” problem meaning black/brown problem in real life. The destruction of society under feminist direction has led to black/brown pathologies becoming more common among lower-class whites, but again that is another post.
There is an old joke that the best kind of doctor to be is a dermatologist, because your patients never die, and they never get better. If you are in the business of solving problems, it is best to have customers that have very difficult problems that never quite get solved. This ensures a steady stream of money coming in, which is much better than a sporadic stream or worse yet a one-time payment.
To a normal, sane person, the problems of black people mean there is something wrong with black people. But since it has been scientifically proven that any measurement showing negative conclusions about blacks is a racist fake, (and even the President is on record saying this, in one of his few academic papers released to the public) the problems of black people are by definition the fault of white people, who are responsible for solving them.
All this was formally laid out in Brown v. Board of Education by the all-white Supreme Court of 1954. I’m not making this up- anyone can read this on Wikipedia, not known as a bastion of right-wing thought. (Fun fact- Earl Warren was a Republican but re-elected governor of California in 1946 on the Republican, Democratic, and Progressive tickets. This was after the Japanese internment so liberals can’t say they were against that at the time.)
My position is and always has been that leftism doesn’t come from Jews, although they are useful tools of the progressive elite. Blacks are even less likely candidates for running anything complicated. But for decades they have been a powerful tool and argument for the elites in controlling society. This may eventually backfire, because people are getting tired of black privilege, but no system of power lasts forever.
