Don’t Discuss Race

Posted in Politics, Society on July 28th, 2013

pickin In recent years various Blacktivists, racial politicians, and race-baiting grievance-mongers have exhorted Americans to have a frank discussion on race and race relations in America. Every single occurrence of this, however, is nothing but cynical attempts to further their particular agendas.

The correct response from Americans is don’t discuss race at all at any time or in any place.

Discussing race is just allowing America’s domestic enemies to define the argument in the terms they’re comfortable with and ignoring science and reality while doing so.

Caveat: We do need to discuss race in the context of pathologies and medical outcomes because genetics and race play a part in those things.

Race is meaningless and is only used to provide a unassailable bulwark from which America’s domestic enemies can wage their culture wars. What matters is culture.

So, my fellow Americans, don’t discuss race. Discuss culture instead and watch the Liberals, Progressives, and minority grievance-mongers either scurry for cover or forget themselves and speak the truths that highlight the cynical grifting nature of their positions and goals.

What’s Important

Posted in Society on July 27th, 2013

A simple but profound and profoundly important parable:

SON: “Daddy, may I ask you a question?”
DAD: “Yeah sure, what is it?”
SON: “Daddy, how much do you make an hour?”
DAD: “That’s none of your business. Why do you think you should ask such a thing?”
SON: “I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?”
DAD: “If you must know, I make $100 an hour.”
SON: “Oh! (With his head down). Daddy, may I please borrow $50 from you?”

The father was furious.

DAD: “If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I work hard everyday for such this childish behavior.”

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.

The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy’s questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?

After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think: Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $ 50 and he really didn’t ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy’s room and opened the door.

DAD: “Are you asleep, son?”

SON: “No daddy, I’m awake”.
DAD: “I’ve been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier. It’s been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here’s the $50 you asked for.”

The little boy sat straight up, smiling.

SON: “Oh, thank you daddy!”

Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills. The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father.

DAD: “Why do you want more money if you already have some?”
SON: “Because I didn’t have enough, but now I do. Daddy, I have $100 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.”

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his forgiveness.

This is just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts.

Do remember to share that $100 worth of your time with someone you love? If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days. But the family and friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives. And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our family.

Some things are more important.

You might want to think about this because, not only is it relevant to many of our personal situations, it’s the core of much of what is wrong in America. We have across all the economic quintiles mistaken money and things for wealth and shifted our priorities accordingly … to the ruination of our society.

Black Self-Rule

Posted in Politics, Society on July 27th, 2013

If one is unfortunate enough to have to hear the rantings of the “Black Community” and their ever-jabbering grievance-mongers that front for them, one is going to hear a lot about “the two Americas.” They hoot and holler nigh on constantly about “White America” and “Black America” and how the former does nothing but oppress and disenfranchise the latter. All of this rhetoric has a strong undercurrent of the same anger and hatred that the Africans displayed towards their Colonial masters during the 18th and 19th centuries.

It’s possible, however, that this undercurrent has a logical basis, because Black self-rule in America bears a sad and shocking resemblance to Black self-rule in their home continent of Africa, Detroit, MI being the sinking, broke-back flagship example of this.

Post-Colonial Detroit - Black Self-Rule in actionPost-Colonial Detroit Circa 2012

When Detroit was under White governance the city was one of the economic beacons of America but then the Blacks took over the ruling of the city. They systematically changed the laws, ordinances, regulation, and general tenor of the Detroit into an “Afrocentric” mecca and drove the Whites out of the city by making it an untenable and hostile environment.

Now Detroit is a bankrupt urban wasteland, with large swaths of the city literally abandoned and lacking all services – even streetlights. The police department has even been talking about concentrating the population into a zone where they can be defended and protected from the scavengers and criminals skulking in the surrounding ruins.

Yeah, that’s pretty much a direct parallel to what happened in Africa when the White colonial powers left and the Blacks there attained self-rule.
