I don’t work for a real classy outfit, so I frequently stay in not very classy places, and I don’t get a rental car. I found myself in a crummy roadside hotel and needing to eat, so I set off on foot.
Unfortunately this place has a “lounge” which being at a crummy roadside hotel attracts a lowlife crowd. Walking out of the parking lot onto the road, a couple of young black guys come- bopping? shuffling? doing that street thing, whatever you want to call it. So I avoid eye contact, and move my path a little off to the right, which is the direction I was going in anyway.
I’m not sure, but I think the one moved a little towards me, and passing me, just out of my peripheral vision, says “Boo!”
On one level, real schoolyard stuff. Low grade physical intimidation. But the reality is they could have hurt me pretty bad with no consequences. Dark parking lot, no witnesses at that time, had anybody come by it would have been another black person who wouldn’t have said anything or been a witness. An assault would have met with a cursory investigation and no arrest; permanent injuries or death would have meant more police time, with a sincere attempt at an arrest and conviction, but likely with no result.
The truth is in America today blacks have the power on the street. They know it, and they enjoy it. The racial ideology is that all blacks are the helpless victims of all whites and that violence on their part against any white is justifiable both as revenge for past wrongdoing and war to remove any vestiges of white power and privilege.
Ok, black guys…. I know you don’t give a shit and you love being bad n*****s on the street, which has been a socially apporoved thing since the late 60’s. You’ll “catch a case” sooner or later and do time and be a bad n***** in prison, or maybe not.
But maybe you do care, or maybe other black people care, at least a little, and if so can you wonder why people hate and fear you? Why they regard you with disgust and contempt? Not all black people are like that? Some are even comic book nerds, like Coates! Well every black person stands up for the right of blacks to do this, so they are all in the same moral category.
You have the power now. You will probably continue to have it for the foreseeable future, but maybe not always. White people who matter usually don’t encounter blacks in the dark parking lots of crummy hotels. Every once in a while a Matthew Yglesias will find out he’s a polar bear and not a Hispanic/Jew, but he will quickly rationalize it away. Even race realists like Moldbug and Foseti haven’t gone to school with minorities, haven’t been bussed, haven’t delivered pizzas or worked in a convenience store, haven’t been in the military, in other words haven’t met these people when they have all their masks off and behave like they really want to. Foseti wants to know what the difference between him and us is, and this is it.
