A Dash Of American Truth

A beautiful American who happens to be BlackRecently, in response to the pathetic outrage of the “Black Community” over the lack of Black Oscar nominees, Stacy Dash once again spoke truth to what passes for power among the Blacks within America’s borders. And, of course, once again the drums are beating and both the Blacks and their White Liberal enablers are attacking and vilifying Ms. Dash for voicing a truth that is contrary to the orthodoxy of Black Identity, steeped as it in special protections and victimhood.

It was a quite simple truth that Ms. Dash spoke as well:

We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration, and if we don’t want segregation, then we have to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards, where you’re only awarded if you’re black.

If it were the other way around, we’d be up in arms. It’s a double standard. There shouldn’t be a black history month. We’re Americans, period.

— Stacy Dash

Of course, it was the stark simplicity of Ms. Dash’s statement that, more than anything else, fired up the ever-angry and ever-aggrieved “Black Community.” It presented them with a clear and unassailable by logic choice: segregation or assimilation; being Black or being American. This is not something that they can tolerate because their culture’s very identity is based upon not making that choice but, instead, demanding to have it both ways.

Essentially, in my opinion, the Blacks want to be segregated in that they want to behave however they wish to behave, irrespective of whether or not it fits in with the normative values and mores of American society yet, at the same time, they never want those behaviors to in any way negatively impact their personal or communal outcomes, hence integration.

And before any fool claims that I can’t speak of Blacks as if they’re monolithic in outlook, any Black – as Ms. Dash has proven – that doesn’t adhere to their orthodoxy is declared “Not Black Enough.”

Thus, I can speak so.  It is, after all, by the “Black Community’s” own tacit admission a matter of culture and ideology, not genetics.

It’s a simple American truth, you are or become a part of us or you don’t. We don’t easily accept any middle ground when it comes to assimilation. This is a truth that the “Black Community” both fears and hates. Hence, they will attack any Black, such as Stacy Dash, that openly accepts this truth and speaks it aloud. Indeed, they have an entire well-established lexicon of epithets for such apostates.

    Interesting. First, Black Americans have every right to have “their own things” just as other groups do. However, when Bruno Mars (2015) and Justin Timberlake (2014) get passed over for BET Awards than it is time to raise the eyebrow. Something is wrong.

    Second, Stacey Dash is not an ethnic Black American. She is Bajan, Mexican and white. So her perspective is very different. She has never been a legit part of the black community. She has attempted to follow the assimilation model of most immigrants. Therefore, she is not trusted by Black Americans whether she is right or wrong.

    Oh, I agree that Blacks have every right to have “their own things” just as other groups do. But they have to choose whether to exercise that right and remain segregated or immigrate to- and assimilate with America as a whole instead of demanding that they have their cake and eat it too.

    As for Ms. Dash – Whether you look at it from the “one drop” perspective or by upbringing, she’s Black. She was raised in the South Bronx – when it was really bad! – by a single mother. She’s never went to college and even birthed two bastards of her own. I’d say that her perspective fits right in with the dominant or, at least, vocally dominant Black cultural narrative.

    You also might want to consider that, irrespective of ethnicity or appearance, you have a very different perspective from the dominant or, at least, vocally dominant “Black Community” since you descend from three generations of Black-owned business owners. Who’s “less Black,” a mixed-race single mother of a single mother who went into the entertainment business or the son of a long line business owners?

    In response to the Stacey Dash is black, you based this knowledge on her class not her ethnicity. For instance, there are far worse communities other than the Bronx and regardless if she went to college or not, that has nothing to do with the race she is. That perspective was stigmatized.

  4. jonolan Says:

    I based this knowledge upon the circumstances of her upbringing and the culture that she was formed in. As there is no Black ethnicity, only a manufactured culture, most of which didn’t exist 60 years ago, this is the only way I can look at it.

    Besides, Ms. Dash is either Black because that’s how America as a whole sees her or you all need to give up on that particular piece of rhetoric. As always, you can’t have it both ways.
