American Thinker: King had a dream, but blacks now face a nightmare

The linked article is sad and touching. When will the minority groups in British society come to the same realisation? Their hopes and dreams have been ruthlessly exploited by the Left in exactly the same way - and with the same outcome. The racism industry is never going to declare victory, because that would be to make its hordes of parasites redundant. It is going to go on and on redefining itself. Racism is just too valuable a meal ticket (and an electoral dog whistle) ever to give it up. This, no matter how much it saps self-confidence, self-belief and self-reliance by giving certain groups (as capable of success as anyone else) a reason to fail - or at least a reason to stop trying.

At each election liberals say that blacks need protection from conservatives, but there are no conservatives anywhere near us. The only thing that all of the people who set the policies that affect us have in common is that they are all liberal. Our cities have been under liberal control for decades and they are also where the black economic and social indicators are the worst; and the mainstream civil rights movement, that claims to represent us, never questions whether or not liberalism is partially to blame.

Don't get me wrong. There were and are racists. They are stupid people, focussed on a trivial irrelevance. I can only pity people who have nothing more to be proud of than their ethnic origin. They should take up macramé or something; at least a well-crafted bedspread would be their own achievement. I first learned to pity them growing up among Welsh Nationalists; people focussed on a difference so trivial as to be laughable. People who admit they are defined only by their sense of cymreictod; a sense I once had, but abandoned when I realised I was expected to hate people I loved.

Such fools are not worth a second thought; to take them seriously is to make something of them they could never make themselves. Just look at the clowns in the BNP. What sane person can do more than laugh? To the extent such people can ever pose a threat (and we must of course be vigilant not to place them in positions of power) it is one to be triumphantly and contemptuously transcended. The way forward for "ethnic minorities" is the same way forward as for anyone else; self-reliance, family, friendship, kindness, education and effort.

No "liberal" or leftist can admit that, because it would be to expose themselves as the exploitative parasites they are.

According to the academic definition, which brackets fear or hatred of another race with the power to do something about it, that's *not* racism. Such verbal trickery is all part of the scheme to keep the concept alive, when to all practical intents and purposes (in terms of white prejudice against non-whites) it's dead. The recent study into jury attitudes showed that. The other (non-academically approved) forms of racism however persist. What are honour killings of daughters who are suspected of liaisons with men of other ethnic or religious groups but the vilest, crudest form of racism? The point there (as was always the real point) is that it's not the racism that matters, but the vile behaviours. Thoughts (however vile) should never be illegal. Vile actions are another matter.

"It's ironic that now that we have the freedom to vote for whomever we like, almost all of us vote for one type of candidate -- the kind that's the worst for us. "

This is not just true of American blacks, or minority groups in Britain. It has horrifically true in post colonial Africa. Sometimes I wonder if it is true of vast numbers of ordinary people in modern Britain.


Anti-Racism is big business and those who profit from it will do anything and everything to keep it going.
I lived in London just after the Notting Hill riots in the late 50s/early 60s and was just another immigrant, albeit a white hick from the sticks. I saw people as I found them. Skin colour was irrelevant, culture was not. What divided the inhabitants of west London was the cultures they brought with them.
Forty or fifty years later we see second and third generation immigrants happily integrated and British. With one notable exeption. Those communities that refuse to integrate. In most cases they are moslem.
That's not racist but an observation. It's not religious discrimination either.
Those who come to this country and integrate become British. Those who refuse to integrate are a problem.

I have no sympathies with the BNP or any extremist organistaion that would seek to segregate parts of the population. I do believe that we can all live together peacefully if we choose to. Some choose not to.

I recall when I first encountered extreme racism. It was back in the 60s and I was working at a banana packing plant in West London. The Jamaicans hated the Africans. They loathed them and considered them sub human. They called them monkeys who didn't know how to use a wc. That's racism.
But it doesn't fit in with the stereotype and is ignored.
The sooner they shut down the useless quango the better.


Racism is just too valuable a meal ticket (and an electoral dog whistle) ever to give it up.

And therein lies the tragedy and the cyclical nature of it. There's plenty of life in this "ism" yet.
