To accuse others for oneâ€™s own misfortunes is a sign of want of education. To accuse oneself shows that oneâ€™s education has begun. To accuse neither oneself nor others shows that oneâ€™s education is complete.
Honestly, this is an example of MLK’s greatest gift to America. His successes in the Civil Rights Movement directly led to the re-desegregation of swimming pools, thereby allowing us to enjoy such a wonderful Afrodite rising from the water. 😉
Recently, 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 donâ€™t want segregation, then we have to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards, where youâ€™re only awarded if youâ€™re black.
If it were the other way around, weâ€™d be up in arms. Itâ€™s a double standard. There shouldnâ€™t be a black history month. Weâ€™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.Â 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.
Lynne Albuquerque, who is White and a Long Island school teacher at Alverta B. Gray Schultz Middle School in Hempstead, NY, was threatened with a particularly severe variety ofÂ sexual assault by a Black student identified solely as “N.L..” The school’s Assistant Superintendent, Rodney Gilmore, another Black male, responded by filing disciplinary charges against her and moving to terminate her employment.
When I get done ramming you, Iâ€™m gonna bag your daughter, then ram the bitch through the whole gang!
— Ghetto Buck, N.L.
Gilmore claims, though in more “well-spoken” and “nuanced” words, that she was asking for it.
Dat Ain’t Rape! It’s Reparations!
What can only in these days be classed as unsurprisingly, the young ghetto buck, N.L. was never reported to the police and his three day suspension was almost immediately reversed because the elder ghetto buck, Rodney Gilmore decided that Ms. Albuquerque instigated the confrontation, i.e., she was asking for it either through her deportment or through her temerity as a White woman in confronting and possibly disciplining a Black male.
Frankly, I don’t know what Ms. Albuquerque was and is thinking. There was never any significant amount of hope that a Black-run school district was ever going to side with a White woman against a Black male, especially in the case of sexual assault, which when perpetrated by Black males upon White women isn’t considered by the “Black Community” to be wrong or criminal.
Funny how this never made the national news isn’t it? All it would take was a small Confederate Flag left anonymously on a Black teacher’s desk to cause the Lamestream Media’s headlines to explode. Yet, the threat of gang raping a White woman and her daughter by Blacks is not newsworthy, nor is her suspension and termination under the orders of a Black male. But then, that is the state of times and the mindset of America’s domestic enemies.
Truth be told, however, I’m not totally sympathetic to Ms. Albuquerque. Much like the Liberal aid workers who went to the Muslim World only to end up captured, brutalized, and beheaded, Ms. Albuquerque in choosing to teach Blacks in a Black-run school district put herself directly in harm’s way. Worse, again like Liberal aid workers who went to the Muslim World, she did so in a fashion that cut her off from all reasonable sources or support, succor, and recourse.
Last month Bryan Stascavage, a 30-year-old Wesleyan University (WSA) economics major and decorated veteran who served two tours as an military intelligence analyst for the US Army in Iraq penned an unsafe opinion about the Black Live Matter (#BlackLivesMatter) movement in an op-ed for his the school newspaper, The Wesleyan Argus. The previous winner of WSA’s Chadbourne Prize was shocked by the result.
His op-ed, “Why Black Lives Matter Isnâ€™t What You Think,” wasn’t a glowing endorsement of the Blacks’ movement and, therefor, was met with a shitstorm of hate and vitriol from the Blacks and the Liberals and Progressives who pander to- and enable them.
That was, in itself, completely to be expected and it’s hard to generate any true sympathy for Mr. Stascavage who should have known what he was buying for himself by not adhering to the Left’s and their minority sharecroppers’ orthodox dogma of total submission to their doctrine.
No. What is horrific is a subset of these vermin’s response, not against Mr. Stascavage directly, but against the The Wesleyan Argus which published his opinion piece and, thereby, exposed the student body to it. The Liberals, Progressives, and their minority sharecroppers are demanding that Wesleyan University defund the Argus because of it.
A petition demanding the Wesleyan Argus lose funding unless it meets certain demands has signatures from at least 172 students, staff and recent alumni. Signatories threatened to boycott the paper because they said it fails to “provide a safe space for the voices of students of color and we are doubtful that it will in the future.”
They also demand that commitment be made by the Argus to create work study/course credit positions; a monthly report on allocation of funds and leadership structure; a required once-per-semester Social Justice/Diversity training for all student publications; active recruitment and advertisement; and open space on the front page in the publication dedicated to marginalized groups/voices, specifying that if no submissions are received, The Argus will print a section labeled â€œfor your voice.â€
This is what now passes for students in these Affirmative Action times and in the wake of what the “Civil Rights” movement has degenerated into. They demand that White voices be silenced in favor of “Social Justice” and providing Liberal, Progressive, and Minority students total freedom from any opinion or subject matter that might may them uncomfortable in some way, shape, or form by not rigorously adhering to their sensitivities.
Most reasoning people in America have to shake their heads in bafflement whenever a celebrity, especially and actor or actress, feels both the need to- and that it is their place to weigh in on serious issues.
A quite interesting example of this phenomenon is the recent video from Amandla Stenberg, Donâ€™t Cash Crop My Cornrows, in which the 16 year-old actress lambasts certain form of “cultural appropriation” by Whites.
Don’t Cash Crop On My Cornrows
Young Ms. Stemberg’s dissertation on the percieved evils of Whites adopting bits and pieces of Black Culture was eloquent and respectful, delivered with restraint and a voice carrying the compelling emotion that one would expect from a professional performer. Yet, at the end of the day, however, all Stenberg is really saying is, “Step off, Whitey! That shit be Black.” This is an interestingly hypocritical position for a light-skinned – possibly, if not probably, lightened-skinned – young female who obviously spends considerable time, effort, and money achieving “Good Hair,” i.e., White Hair, to be taking and espousing.
Of course, with Amandla Stenberg being a Light Girl, she may feel a lot of pressure to speak so in order to prove that she’s “Black Enough.” Hence, we should give her the hand-out of tolerance.
Yet, possibly inadvertently, Stenberg brought up one of the underlying problems that America is forced to with when confronting the problem of the Blacks within our borders. The “Black Community” are not and do not want to be Americans in a way shape or form except for legalistically and then only when it benefits them without impinging upon their deep-seated need to both other than- and antithetical to normative American society.
Generationally speaking, this behavior of the “Black Community” is recent but it is accelerating along predictable lines and with an equally predictable ending. Truly, it goes no further back than the end of segregation and with each removal of the physical separation of Blacks from the rest of America Black Culture has responded by being more exilic and more outre.
Ironically, the “Black Community,” coping with the end of segregation, wants and demands to be separate but equal. Sadly, the separateness is based upon cultural norms that are willfully at odds with those of America as whole.
Thus we arrive at Ms. Stenberg’s video. It’s simply a product of the “Black Community” striving to be a different and separate from normative American culture as possible in the wake of there being no barrier to their assimilation – social, societal, and psychological immigration really, for they are foreigners – into America as a whole.
