John McWhorter: A Better Way to Honor Dr. King's Dream - WSJ.com

Quote:
A Better Way to Honor Dr. King's Dream: White people are not the problem. Too many blacks, egged on by the Left, don’t want to give up their victimhood. Racism is now only found in psychological experiments.

"...the term "institutional racism," which the Black Power movement injected into the lexicon in the late 1960s, is more damaging to the black psyche than the n-word or any crude jokes about plantations or food stamps. The term encourages blacks to think of society—in which inequality, while real, is complex and faceless—as actively and reprehensibly racist in the same way that Archie Bunker was. The result is visceral bitterness toward something that can't feel or think.

Equally distracting is the notion that America needs a "conversation" about race, one in which whites submit to a lesson from blacks about so-called institutional racism. "Those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening," King told us in his speech. What we awaken to now is the rudeness of idle talk, of those who blow off steam by demanding a "conversation" that will not bear fruit—look no further than President Clinton's national effort on that front in the late 1990s—and in any case wouldn't provide greater opportunity to any poor person."
Much, much more at link.


It used to be taught, self-reliance style, that "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me." Now it's all this victimology crap instead, not just "racism" but also "bullying" "harassment" "offending people," and everything else. It's not "institutional racism" it is "institutional victimology," it is "institutional government dependence" because they also preach that only government can "end the (insert victim group term here - bullying, racism, et al.)

The total erosion of self reliance.

Self reliance is for white men.

And thus EEEVIL.

Bonus round for Ed the sophisticate, courtesy of Rush Limbaught:

"There is a distinct singular American culture - rugged individualism and self-reliance - which made America great."

Racists used to be the white guys who told black men they weren't smart enough to get into college, good enough to compete in the work force, or deserving enough of an equal chance. Now those white men are civil rights leaders, and those who dare say the opposite are racist.

Blacks are cool and whites are sissies. That is what our media teaches us. But what hollywood teaches isn't true. Just look at reality shows like jerry springer, repo games, and many other of the same kind of shows. Can't forget maury po'bitch. That show us a real picture of what is wrong with this country, which is rampant stupidity, glorified stupidity, institutional stupidity. And these shows are shown all over the world, making us a laughing stock.

The type of racism that was prevalent before 1970 is gone, and it ain't coming back. While there certainly still exists individuals who are racists of that kind there simply is not a lot of them. Certainly not a critical mass to restart Jim Crow laws and open racism and segregation. The easy targets are gone and the shooters need new targets because that is what they are, that is what they do. Thus we end up with manufactured outrage, "dog whistles" and other such nonsense trying to show that just the normal hurly-burly of life is somehow inherently racist towards blacks.

Worrying about what other countries think of us is where today's "Liberalism" starts.

Who gives a red rat's ass?

We are better fed, bigger, taller, better looking, more innovative - in every way exceptional examples of homo sapiens, and the rest of the world is never going to like us, for those reasons.

So, fuck 'em.

Actually, everybody who's anybody cares a lot of what people think of him.

If the Chinks think that the US is on the brink of collapse, for instance, they could very well cause it by refusing to participate in the next treasuries turnover.

Of course the Chinese may have their own problems in that regard.

I guess we in Texas are nobody who's nobody. Because we really, truly, don't give a red rat's ass what anyone thinks of us. Really. It's just not something we pay any attention to at all.

Dog whistle is an interesting metaphor.

The dog whistle presumes that only the dog can hear the whistle. So, it only follows that the real racists are those who claim that they can hear the "dog whistle" and "code words".
