Thoughts on Race Commentary In The Dissident Right

16 million men today are descended from Genghis Khan. That's some serious mixing.

Many progressive have obsessed over race to the point its turned them into bitter people who can’t take time off to enjoy life. For others they’ve become self-loathing “allies” too busy worrying about their privilege to realize there’s more lessons to be learned from history than just “oppression.”

So take a hint from the self-inflicted pain these people put them through and DONT DO THE SAME.

One things many of us on the Dissident Right should be aware of is history and how demographics across the world have adapted and changed through conquest, migration, colonization, and various other methods.  They all overlap in various circles and variables.

Humans are tribal.  We always have been and likely always will. Race, ethnicity, cities, families, regions, tribes, etc all represent various “circles” that overlap.

Think of the Google+ circle overlap of friends, acquaintances, etc.  The internet, ease of travel, and technology have changed our “identities.  Because you can travel 100 miles with a car in mere hours, you and a host of other people can show up at a metal concert, all look somewhat similar, mosh and partake in an event that builds an identity for all those there.

Yes, “Us vs them” is a natural human instinct and its effect up until the last 300 years can’t be understated when used to distract the populace from their real overseers. It doesn’t however mean everything should be “us”, whoever that might be, vs some other group. Not every aspect of life is not a zero sum game.

Now I’ll admit, I may have a bias. I don’t even know if I’m bi-racial. The Turks burned all of our damned records in the genocide, but considering how many different times Armenia was conquered and how many different Empires and other groups have gone through it, I probably have a whole host of Middle Eastern, Russian, and maybe even Asian blood in me. (I’m going to take an ancestry test).  My European half is various mix of ethnicity.

I don’t live in Chicago, but even in the part of Illinois I live, I know ALOT of mixed, bi-racial people, not just including both sides of my family and my wives.  It’s not deliberate persay, it just happened – probably because the Lake County area generates ALOT of jobs, just as nearby Kenosha County in Wisconsin is starting too. People move to where the jobs are. (Cook County is dead to me.)

 Stop seeing the extremes and loud voices from external groups as the complete representation.  Most black people don’t care about Black Lives Matter, social justice, or intersectional nonsense. Sure, they might have some agreement with the overall thrust behind BLM, but they’d much rather just go about living life than obsessing over the white man.

Again you will have the malcontent trust fund types who have too much time on their hands and a luxury of funds to major in African studies, but most black people dont. They aren’t wasting their time studying about “oppression”.  They are working, trying to survive like everyone else, and enjoy the time they have.

Most Hispanics don’t care about La Raza.  The most disagreeable position they might have with you is immigration, and even then, it’s not uniform. They don’t hate “whites” anymore than any other group. Sure, they have they radicals, but if you aren’t at a college campus in a VERY urban city, they won’t care.

 Two

Interracial sex and in some cases marriage is inevitable. Hell, in 50 years, it will be harder to tell who is mixing with who. Just because it’s been weaponized by progressive race obsessed miserable fanatics doesn’t mean it’s somehow wrong, bad, or negative.

What’s inevitable about it?  Simply history shows that groups will intermingle given migration, conquest, or in today’s day the ability to simply pack up and move.   Sure, there are some rather nasty statistics that have been mentioned ad nauseum already that we shouldn’t overlook. (Particularly that most black men regardless of the race of the women they have children with often don’t just refrain from marrying the mother, but often leave her as well. Granted I have a strong sympathy for black men – not because of racism/opression, but that’s for another time.)

Those of us in the “manosphere” should be very familiar with the numerous reasons why black and white men in particular might choose to date and marry outside of their race and I can’t fault them for it either.

Three

While the DailyStormCucks are obsessing about white purity and how it looks via ghetto trash representatives and the occasional armchair philosphers, they keep overlooking that what it means to be “white” has changed drastically in the last 100 years alone.

Zimmerman was a “White Hispanic”.  Italians, Greek, and various Balkanites weren’t white 100 years ago.  Just two hundred years ago the Irish were looked at as mongrels.  We can’t even tell if people from North Africa are White, Arab, or “African” or some mixture of all or how different they are from each other in the two thousand years of constant warfare between each other, invasions, conquests, and migrations.

Even Hispanics originating from Hispania – that’s Spain and Northwest Africa – are part white and whatever else after mixing with the local natives – another example of “interracial” inevitability.  Look at other parts of the world.

How many people from Asia and the Middle East have Mongolian, Seljuk Turk, or Mughal in them?  How many people alone are descended from Genghis Khan today? How many people in Western Europe, Russia, etc have Scandinavian Viking in them? Yes, the Japanese and Han Chinese might be their own exceptions.

Racial purity isn’t necessarily good or bad, but it’s unlikely somewhere like the US where you’ve had various waves of immigration.  Yes, people do stick to their own groups, but plenty will look for love elsewhere and where it’s most easily available. (Not to exclude opportunity, work, education, etc.)

Acknowledging racial, ethnic, gender, etc differences is important. Ignoring them doesn’t make any of it go away. James Damore was fired for daring to talk about it.

If we don’t, we will never be able to improve our lot, or those around us.  Dave Rubin did an interview with Stefan Molyneux on the subject, and while I’m not sure I place the same stake in “IQ” tests that he does, it’s worth watching to see how it affects how we live.  (Criticism from a left-leaning source here.)

Acknowledging racial and ethnic differences doesn’t mean we need to sterilize “low IQ” people or thrust some crazy eugenic influence into law like the early social progressives tried to do with their social Darwinism.

It simply means that we need to address what we know.  Now there’s plenty of insanity in this category with lots of supposed “pseudo-science” being clung around, but regardless the more we talk about it, the better it can be vetted.

There’s this idea that high IQ people have no flaws and are always ideal to a countries prosperity and success.  Sure, they are important, but their penchant to do evil with their brilliance is also a possibility.  Low IQ types may resort to crime, but many don’t and won’t.

Africa might have some of the lower IQ averages, but it’s more of an indication of constant and complete population displacement and a lack of exposure and well traveled trade routes that facilitate the exchange of knowledge and eventual academic undertaking.

Give some place like Uganda relative peace, 500 years of generations being exposed to a consistent 8th grade level education, majority of the populace being literate and watch what happens. Europe, the Middle East, or Asia didn’t magically build universities, hospitals, ect in 100 years.

It’s going to take time for the 3rd world to get to a 2nd world level. Unfortunately for Africa, the corruption that is so innate to MANY of the cultures of African countries – and the governments there -will test to see if it’s possible.  Perhaps the worldview shift taking place in parts of Africa – the rise of Christianity – will start to have an effect on the corrupt culture.

Don’t forget the kind of effect Christianity had on the culture and peoples of the Germanic tribes, Gauls, Franks, Danes, and even the Vikings.  Look at what Sweden became – or virtually all of Europe for that matter. It didn’t happen overnight.

Ideas have consequences, regardless of the culture they are from. If there’s anything history tells us, it’s that certain ideas – often many of those in the Anglosphere, some in Asia, and others in Europe and the Americas can uplift a society.

The Middleast is stuck where it is for a reason, despite dominance up to the mid 17th century.  An industrial revolution and the ideas necessary for it never took old.  The same can be said for most of Africa.

With the introduction of the internet and incredible easy accessible means to learn, share, and obtain information, that may change.  However, it will take at least several generations for those changes to start to take root and have results.

You can’t have a cohesive stable functional identity based on race. You can have one based on commonalities, but race doesn’t quite fit the bill here. Brazilians don’t have much in common with the Venezuelans, the Poles with the English, the Japanese with the Vietnamese, the Nigerians with the  Somali, etc.

Even similar ethnicities like the Belgian Walloons and Flemmings don’t have much in common, despite sharing the same country. Old ties die hard.

A “white” ethnostate is not just a stupid idea – considering what alt right whites like Spencer and ultra liberal whites like Michael Moore have in common, but an impractical one. It’s just as dumb as any other racial ethnostate. The modern world and means of travel make it an impossible one.

Also the constant melding of people over time means one wont know who is necessarily white, black, brown, asian ect over time if the Hispanics – who are partially white just from their spanish roots – are already demonstrating.  The “mutt” of various European blood which intermixed will soon happen here on an even bi-racial scale  here.

Sure, you might be able to form an identity based on who you are comfortable living next to, but spend some time in urban, rural, and everywhere in between and you’ll find out how different the world is.

Yes, we are tribal.  I feel loyalty to men in the manosphere, as well as some of those in the dissident right, but my familial obligations and loyalty come first – even more so than I thought.

Right there is where you form your identity. Family isn’t necessarily biological and blood related – it’s the close friends, often in similar circles, you make over your lifetime that become like blood.  This is where we must start.

Not Everyone Cares For MLK Day. Why?

 

Opinionated Man (OM) over at Harsh Reality is known for offending people and he’s at it again with an article most of us wouldn’t have had the balls to write entitled, “Why I don’t care for Martin Luther King Day”  Yes, he went there.  Another day, another Cushman crushing.

From An Asian Perspective...
From An Asian Perspective…

MLK like Lincoln, Washington, and Reagan,  is one of American culture’s Golden Calves.  You can’t even point out any wrong they did or any mistaken ideas they espoused without being labeled some kind of “ist or ism”.  In this case, you would be labeled a racist.  It’s almost a reverse, “guilt by association.”

Luckily for those of us with with “privilege” – in my case I only have half-white privilege – OM a.k.a Jason Cushman is a actually an Asian and an adopted one at that.   People can’t label him a racist as easily and he makes full use of this and well, he just doesn’t care.

It is the personal story of Jason and many of the commentors that is worth a lengthy observation as to why and how MLK day becomes a free-for-all to actually become a racist and to judge people specifically based on their skin – social justice warriors, I’m looking at you and some of the latest vitriol, “Reading Challenge: Stop Reading White  Straight Cis Male Authors For One Year”

Insert any other race, gender, ect into there and that kind of headline would have career ending effects.  But I digress.

Jason’s Story

“The black friends I had were born from friendships at my 80% black school (maybe it wasn’t 80% exactly but it sure felt like 99% most days)…

My school was “pro” anything that made African Americans feel important…”

What if his school had been anything that made White or Asian Americans feel important? (Currently these are the two easiest races to pick on without career ending implications.)

“I learned with every other kid in my school the good works that Martin Luther King did and I was truly proud of his accomplishments…”

“What I could not understand was how could the Blacks at my school celebrate equality and freedom and in the same breath bash with malice an Asian kid for being Asian. It was so hypocritical to me that my disdain extended past the handful of kids tormenting me and included their whole race…”

This post by Jason is so important, because it’s rare to see anyone openly talk about MLK day in a negative light or the “racial reconciliation” that’s supposed to take place on the day.

“It did not breed hatred, at least not at this point, but what it bred was a scorn for this holiday and even this man that was not fairly handed out. But pain and suffering create feelings that are not always rational. I know this now, looking back I probably knew this at the time as well, but the result is still the same. I dislike this holiday and all I see is hypocrites.”

I honestly expect this kind of treatment and hypocrisy on racial issues to get worse over the years as we attempt “racial reconciliation” with people who proudly proclaim things such as, “There is no such thing as reverse racism,” or Racism requires power. Without it negative racial feelings might be discriminatory but they certainly aren’t racist.”   Yea, she just said that.   Looks like “yellow” privilege might be coming to a social media feed soon near you.

This kind of thinking has now spread to gender, ethnicity, “cis” and every other category we can dream up to be terrible toward others, but somehow excuse it.  The next time you are being beaten to death by an “oppressed group”, I’ll be curious to see who holds the power in that situation.  Even then though, some people still will blame themselves, as this white college did after he was mugged.  He apparently deserved it because of his privilege.

In the comments, Jason addresses the question of who and why we should hold MLK up as a hero and what he should mean to Americans,

“I disagree. He means nothing to me as an Asian. He did not end segregation for us. He did not give me any scholarships or a future where Korean Americans are valued. He did nothing for us. Was he a good man? Sure. But I hate when people try to TELL us who our heros are. He is not my hero.”

Ah the subject of cultural heroes – a very violate one in today’s climate – but that is for another post.  Observe his point though.   Is MLK a hero for what he did for each and every one of us or because society and popular culture tell us he was?  That’s for each person to decide.

The Commentors Have Their Say

There are some telling comments in OM’s post about how much celebration of MLK day could take place and what kind of discrimination via hypocrisy people had faced. Note these comments are those of people who primarily share similar misfortune to Jason’s situation and experience.

Amanuensis – ” I am a black female mid 40’s, who was harassed, belittled and made to feel inferior by other black kids at school. The kids in my neighborhood were fine, but at school, I was called an “oreo” (black on the outside white on the inside,) I talked “white,” what is that really? I read books during recess and tried to avoid all confrontation. I was a “nerd” because I got good grades and got put into a special program for high IQ kids. I was a traitor because I had white friends. I was just happy to have friends who were like me, no matter the race.”

Ashley – “Growing up, in school, I was also teased by my own race (blacks). I got teased because I didn’t act like the rest, I was mostly quiet and felt like I couldn’t speak for a while, because of the damage. Kids can be so cruel. Im story for going on and on about my feelings, but the point I’m making, is you are not the only one who didn’t celebrate MLK bday.”

mykiasmind – it was the Black kids at home that made me feel really out of place. They made fun of me because I “talked white” and went to a “white school” and actually had to do my homework and play “white” sports. They ostracized me from all the other kids in the neighborhood and I hated them for it. Now that I’m older, I realize that it was just ignorance, lack of knowledge and understanding about anything different than what they were used to… but the damage is still done. So I get it.

Elta – Until high school, I went to school where black kids were the majority. I remember this one time where a teacher was announcing the dates we had off for school and he mentioned MLK Day. This one asshole in the class opens his mouth and says “Elta should come for HALF the day, since she’s only HALF black”. Mouthes dropped in the classroom and everyone looked at me.

… I had told him that I was half Korean and not to tell anyone because kids were usually mean to me once they found out. It happened before. Fucking asshole proceeded to then tell the class that I should keep my Black side at home but bring the Korean part to school because Martin Luther King “didn’t die for no chinks”.

Feminadazza – “Black people discriminate too. Just because one Great Black guy is celebrated he is not the embodiment of an entire race. You speak of yourself because of your experiences, and you are justified to think that way of Martin Luther King day. I don’t celebrate it, although I’m black. There are some shit stuff black people do that I’m expected to tolerate, but I find them immature – a thought that could immediately isolate me. Nevertheless, I hear you loud and clear, and respect your opinion.”

Penshift – ” I’m of mixed racial decescent. However I look very white. Because I look white I always get the accusatory end of the stick the moment the subject of discrimination comes up. In the more heated ‘discussions’ I have always loved the blame laying -_- I’m white therefore I’m personally at fault for the slaves sold into slavery; I personally ripped the ‘stolen generation’ from their kin. All this shows is that discrimnation comes in many forms and can be justified a little too easily.”

infjreflections – “I don’t get why we can celebrate some races, but not others. It is racist to celebrate any race that isn’t black. I live right next door to a playground, where 3 black boys were playing with a white kid. They said to the white kid, “If you white, you racist!” REALLY?? Is that what parents are teaching their kids? It’s no wonder race is still such an issue! We are teaching our children that your skin color alone indicates that you are racist.

Adam – I don’t care much for the Federal holiday because it does not coincide with the 15th—MLK Jr’s actual birthday. And what happened Monday? I heard more about protests than anything else, and barely anything besides maybe people talking about not working. Where is the legacy today? Hypocrisy is an understatement.

leonahenry – There is racism and bigorty within the white race, too. I’m blonde and pale skinned, but when I lived in California, I was picked on and bullied of all the time by the Anglo supremacist jerks just because I was an immigrant with an accent. If you are not WASP and have a foreign accent, you are a second class citizen in their eyes, regardless of color.

Detroit: ‘The Truth Hurts… Tough Shit’

In today’s society, people who tell it like it is are rare. Usually they don’t want to lose their jobs, have their reputation permanently tarnished, ect.   L Brooks Patterson, is apparently one of those rare people and he is taking some heat for it.  He made “controversial” comments – let the entertainment begin – about the city of Detroit.  In a recent interview with the New Yorker, he said the following:

“Anytime I talk about Detroit, it will not be positive. Therefore, I’m called a Detroit basher,” he said. ”The truth hurts, you know? Tough s***.”

He goes as far in the interview to warn his children to stay out of Detroit to the extent of even avoiding to stop for gas because its a potential car jacking in the making.  Regardless of his chosen political party, Republican,  he is spot on. Detroit looks like world three happened to it and the residents who live there look like survivors of the war.

Yes, this is Detroit, not a third world country

I was in the Detroit back in January of 2012, and there is really nothing positive to say about the city. For all those who immediately shudder at the “Republican” buzzword, I’m not a republican and Patterson has aptly and correctly described Detroit. But don’t believe me, go and stay a night around there yourself – if you have the guts that is.  Apparently the Reverend Jesse Jackson isn’t pleased by Patterson’s comments and believes they they include elements of racial offense, because he is calling for a public apology. Why? Details, details as to those words of racial offense:

“He’s also quoted as saying a prediction he made has come to pass. He said, “What we’re going to do is turn Detroit into an Indian reservation, where we herd all the Indians into the city, build a fence around it, and then throw in the blankets and corn.”

National Action Network’s Michigan chapter president Rev. Charles Williams II shockingly shared a similar opinion as Reverend Jackson. He found the remarks to be:

“repulsive -not just because Detroit is mostly a black city, but “because it is also a direct slight to the American Indians who occupied the land before Detroit was Detroit, and Oakland County.”

I do believe both Jackson and Willams III to be mistaken in their judgement on this “incident”, if you can call it that. Why?
1. The truth really does hurt. What the American government did to the Indians when they took their land and herded them onto reservations is essentially what Patterson is describing. Rough, but the truth should never be buried regardless of how much it hurts.

2. It’s irrelevant whether the city is mostly black, mostly white, mostly mixed, or mostly whatever; Detroit it still a place you don’t want to visit and should avoid visiting if you value your health, belongings, and those traveling with you.  Patterson has nothing to apologize for.

Let me make one of those dreaded internet admissions for all to see that might haunt me in the future:  When I was scouting out a hotel room to stay at, I realized I and those with me couldn’t stay in Detroit.  We would need to stay in the “burbs” maybe about 15-20 mins from Detroit if we valued our safety.   This video is an example of why you would want to stay in the burbs:

So I specifically looked at the racial population demographics of the towns near Detroit.  I found one that was 98% white or something close to that percentage and chose the motel there.   Pretty appalling right? Safety ends up trumping convictions sometimes.

What should really appall us is in what crime statistics show, especially in a place like Detroit and its outskirts. It is appalling at just how many laws we have to make sure poor minorities, specifically African Americans,  end up as part of those statistics.  It’s no accident that alot of people who live in Detroit can’t own guns to defend themselves and their families because they “broke” laws  ranging from drug possession to drug use to even robbery.   But hey, it’s not like the criminal element wont’ have weapons?

I don’t share Patterson’s opinion that Detroit can’t be saved, but hard choices, sacrifices, and an admission of what does and does not work will need to happen.  Until then, if you live in Detroit, you might as well wrap your fences in barbed wire, bring out the pit traps, and post menacing signs about how you own a firearm and will use it on trespassers.

Rant concluded…
