My Answer to a Black man on how it will all end.

I don’t think blacks or browns want to live with equality, you want to dominate, that’s exactly what your people do in every single city, state and nation that you take from the white race. you bring crime, you bring your brand of “we hate whitey,” you bring ignorance, and eventually economic ruin. We are now awakening from the politically correct drug your 1960’s commi’s injected into our nation, and my question is now not will you leave my people alone and go back to Africa or Latin America as you should, but how much ammo you have? None of this will end peacefully, it never has, and never will, history though is on our side.

European Americans: Yes, We Can!

To rally European Americans from all walks of life around a common purpose

by Frank Roman

Audio Version

When the hard core black socialist Barack Barry Sotero Hussein Obama was running for president he coined the phrase “yes we can.” Three innocuous words which seemed to incorporate a kind of static energy, a phrase that became a battle cry from the George Bush haters to the Che Guevara wannabes. However, no one could actually articulate what he meant by “yes we can” because he never laid out a rational diagram as to what he meant. Instead they relied on high rhetoric which produced in them fantasy land good times, hypnotized by a resounding voice in a large setting with a good sound system (and a teleprompter).

Consequently, in the minds of many white dupes it means they can now assuage the feelings of white guilt they had long ago accepted through manufactured consent by casting an Obama vote. Equally, in the minds of many blacks it was get back time for whitey, simple as that. And the insolent knuckleheads I know you see everyday driving around with Obama/Biden bumper stickers on their vehicles don’t have a clue as to the long term damage the community activist in chief is actually doing to our nation up there in Washington DC. All they know is that a so-called conservative, George Bush, is finally out of office and they have proudly put a “progressive” (marginal) black guy in the White House who promises everyone little to no responsibility for their actions. That’s it. Other than recalling how good he made them feel with yes we can, anything else is beyond their comprehension. When we boil away all the analysis that’s how it is hands down. Yes, they can and they did.

What Does The Establishment Have to Hide?
Report; Posted on: 2009-07-28 15:52:18 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]
In a puzzling editorial in Friday’s edition, the Washington Post blasted the Federal Reserve Transparency Act as “an unserious answer to a serious question.” The Post, which tends to be predictably liberal and quite bland in its editorial pronouncements, used unusually harsh language, calling the bill “wrongheaded in the extreme.” The Post fears the legislation “would destroy financial markets’ faith in the Fed and, by extension, the value of the U.S. dollar, just as surely as a political ‘audit’ of the Supreme Court’s deliberations would undercut public faith in the justice system.”

That’s rather like saying Postal Service letter carriers should drive around in tanks, because the Army does and they both consist of uniformed government employees. The Fed and the Supreme Court both have big marble buildings in downtown Washington, but that’s about all they have in common.

The bill, H.R. 1207 in the House and, under the name the Federal Reserve Sunshine Act, S. 604 in the Senate, would simply amend Title 31 of the U.S. Code to remove restrictions on how the Government Accountability Office can audit the Fed. The GAO would be able to examine the Fed’s discount window operations, funding facilities, open market operations, and agreements with foreign banks and governments, and would be required to tell Congress what it discovers by the end of 2010.
That’s it. It would not shut down the Fed, or fire the Fed’s Board of Governors, or overrule the Fed’s decisions. The current legislation would just let us know what is going on in that big marble building.
Strangely, this is what has the Post all in a dither. While the newspaper has rightly called for transparency and open government on many other matters, it believes the Fed should be exempt. Within the same editorial, the Post says the Fed has recently “expanded its role in the U.S. economy to an unprecedented extent,” and that current law provides “no clear mechanism to hold the Fed accountable.” The Post’s editorial board seems to see no contradiction in lamenting the lack of accountability while simultaneously trashing a basic attempt to merely gain information about possible misdoings.
A dollar today is worth less than one-twentieth what it was worth on the day the Federal Reserve was created 96 years ago. Yet over all that time, the unelected Fed has never had to face the full scrutiny of our elected representatives that other powerful agencies must. Even our intelligence agencies must report to Congress — but not the Fed, which has helped rack up an $11 trillion national debt, and an additional $13 trillion in dubious loans and bailouts.
The Fed will not say where that money is going. Chairman Ben S. Bernanke has refused to tell Congress, and why should he? There is no means to compel him, and no way to find out what he’s been doing. The Federal Reserve Transparency Act would change that.
As Rep. Ron Paul said in introducing the bill in February, “Since its inception, the Federal Reserve has always operated in the shadows, without sufficient scrutiny or oversight of its operations. While the conventional excuse is that this is intended to reduce the Fed’s susceptibility to political pressures, the reality is that the Fed acts as a foil for the government. Whenever you question the Fed about the strength of the dollar, they will refer you to the Treasury, and vice versa. The Federal Reserve has, on the one hand, many of the privileges of government agencies, while retaining benefits of private organizations, such as being insulated from Freedom of Information Act requests.”
Thankfully — and somewhat surprisingly — a majority of the House is tired of this century-long status quo. The Federal Reserve Transparency Act has 276 cosponsors — 177 Republicans and 99 Democrats. So far in the Senate, the Federal Reserve Sunshine Act, introduced by independent Sen. Bernard Sanders in March, has 17 cosponsors. While 14 are Republicans, including 2008 presidential nominee John McCain, two of the three Democrats, Russell Feingold and Tom Harkin, are along with Sanders among the most liberal members of the upper chamber.
The Post seems to think a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. These members of Congress know that a little sunshine is a powerful thing. This legislation is a first step toward reclaiming America’s economic freedom.
The European Elections and Euro-Nationalism
Report; Posted on: 2009-07-27 19:29:22 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]
Not willing to surrender a hard earned sovereignty to Brussels, multiculturalism or global capitalism.

Nationalism has been slowly but steadily gaining ground in Europe. Euro-nationalism is based on an opposition to the European Union political project, multiculturalism, mass immigration, globalisation and libertarian laissez-faire policies. Chiefly it builds on the growing alienation that the liberalised modern life has brought; the collapse of local communities, the destruction of traditions, unemployment, the attack on our Christian faith, culturally and spiritually, and the inadequacy of materialism and consumerism to fill the holes in ours lives.

People are fed up. The arrogance of the European establishment can be seen in the failure of many countries to give referendums on the Lisborn Treaty aka. the European Constitution as well as the fact they ignored the Irish and Netherlands ‘No.’ Instead they have called for another referendum to get the answer they wanted, ‘Yes.’

It is clear that the Christian Europe of nations does not want to become a globalised, multicultural Europe under a distant liberal political elite. Additionally the recession and banking crisis has exposed the greed and moral collapse in our societies with the mindless spending of money we don’t have on goods that are not needed coming back to haunt us, whilst the bankers are bailed out by massive government subsidies, subsidies that should have gone into rejuvenating local communities and small businesses.

Today in European politics a mixture of liberal and culturally Marxist (stemming from the Frankfurt school) ideas dominate our institutions, government and establishment and through these the meaningless but almost fascistically dominant abstract ideas of ‘equality’, ‘diversity’, ‘racism’, ‘freedom’ have become the tenants of our new religion that would have us create a heaven here on earth. To many people the cracks in these utopian ideas are becoming  more visible as the real ’stuff’ of societies is being abandoned; traditions, ethnicity, the family, spirituality, community, history and experience.  Not all have given up on the concept of the nation-state, the concept in which our political traditions, our historical realities, our morals lie; the organic community forged by history, Burke’s contract between the living and the dead.

Why Anti-Racism Is Anti-Civilization
Race; Posted on: 2009-07-27 17:10:31 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]
This is remarkable and reveals 1) the depth of harm done by liberal society to ours, 2) how the significance of political theory gives way to race and ethnicity…, and 3) the intractable nature of this mindset.

Yesterday I
began watching Craig Bodeker’s DVD, A Conversation about Race (previously discussed here), but had to stop half way through due to technical problems. I had never heard of Bodeker before the DVD came out. It is exceptional, and exactly what’s needed. It takes us into the heart of the contemporary liberal psychology like nothing I’ve seen.

The moment that most strikes me so far is when a young, pretty white woman is asked to give an example of the racism that according to her is everywhere in our society.

She says that sometimes when she is around black people who are being loud, she thinks to herself that black people are loud. But then she realizes that her objection to loudness is just a part of the “white culture,” the white racist culture in which she has grown up and which she must battle against.

When she said this, I felt I was hearing something new, or at least understanding something familiar in a new light. It is of course a staple of modern liberalism that we must overcome our “stereotypes” about black people and other minorities. For example, if we think that blacks are generally less intelligent or more disorderly or more loud, those are racist “stereotypes” that we must identify and root out of our mind. But what this young woman was saying went beyond that. She was saying that the objection to loudness is itself a racist idea that she needs to root out of her mind. Her underlying reasoning goes like this: because she objects to loudness, and because blacks tend to be loud, the dislike of loudness is a racist feeling and must be eliminated. Which further means that any common standard of white people, any normal criterion of goodness or excellence in our society in which blacks on average happen to be deficient, is by that very fact racist and to be spurned.

It’s Starting to Smell Like Violence, I Am Sorry To Say.
News/Comment; Posted on: 2009-07-26 19:28:52 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]
Will there be open political war on white males?

I was reading the comments to this article on Salon:

It’s entitled “My GOP: Too old, too white to win.” I didn’t even read the article. It’s familiar advice to the GOP that they have to “reach out” to minorities if they expect to win.

But the comments (which are called “letters” at Salon) are amazing, an incredible amount of pure hatred directed toward white males. There is triumphalism in it: White males are outnumbered! They are on the way out! And there’s nothing they can do about it! Also frequently expressed in these comments is the notion that white males are the cause of all the world’s problems.

It’s starting to smell like violence, I am sorry to say. Depending on how the U.S. economy unravels, violence could be coming quite soon to a neighborhood near you.

Here are examples of the anti-white comments at Salon following the article “My GOP: Too old, too white to win,” which I told you about in my previous comment:

The section of North America we call the United States never should have been a land of powerful white Christian males. The land was taken; Plymouth Rock landed on the non-Elect. May the City on a Hill turn something other than lily white. The modern-day GOP represents the entrenched powers who have used political clout and, from time to time, physical violence, to rob dignity and extract profit from the masses. -schenka

I’m even disappointed that only 60% of Latinos or so vote Democratic. I’d like to see a 90% supermajority like in the black community.

It’s bad enough to have to constantly see dirtbag Liz Cheney (a nobody if I’ve ever seen one) vomitting her balogna all over the airwaves. Why don’t you creepy Republicans crawl into the hole that you alone dug for yourselves? I’d be more than happy to cover the hole and be done with you altogether. GO SARA 2012!

#113. Waiting Until Graduation to Start Stripping


High school in the United States is an exciting time for members of every race. Football games, the first parties with alcohol and prom season all leave lasting memories and impressions that will last a lifetime.

John Hughes, the incredible director of 1980s movies, chronicled life for white people in high school in many of his films, from The Breakfast Club to Sixteen Candles. However, his talents and artistic mind would be incapable of creating the video and story you are about learn about, once again coming to you live from Clayton County, Georgia.
The county that is quickly becoming the blueprint for all other majority Black, government controlled by Black people for the benefit of only Black people, Post-Obama America, is also the home to yet another inclusion in Stuff Black People Don’t Like: waiting until graduation to start stripping.
Jonesboro High School, that crown jewel of Georgia educational system – and one of the schools of the only county in the last 40 years to lose its accreditation – is roughly 65 percent Black and 42 percent of its students are eligible for free lunches. It boasts a graduation of 64 percent.
In 2008, the Jonesboro High School dance team made national news when a video of their halftime performance made it on Youtube and reminded some that the Gold Club might have shut down in Atlanta, but it had found permanent residence in the Jonesboro High Basketball Arena:
A provocative dance performed at a basketball game has forced Jonesboro High School to shut down the dance team for the rest of the season…From the beginning, some parents say they noticed the uniform — the short shorts, the tight shirts, the thigh-high socks — and then, the moves.
The girls pulled six boys from the bleachers — who sat back and watch from orange chairs, while the dancers bounced, shook and squatted around them.Trailed by parent complaints, the eight-member dance team was suspended — banned from practicing and performing for the rest of the season.
Their dance advisor was removed from the team.“I told my husband they look like the future hookers of America,” said one parent, Joanne Holt. “It’s terrible! And it’s the teachers that’s teaching ‘em!”

Black people gyrating to music and dancing provocatively is nothing new, as any rap video will display misogynistic behavior toward females. High school students doing this, though, is a step in a direction that will provide a new generation of voracious advocates of the practice of “Making it Rain“.

Stuff Black People Don’t Like will include waiting until graduation to start stripping, for rap videos glorify the debasement of women and thus, the trickle-down theory of the pervision of morality has affected even the fine citizens of Clayton County, the county that epitomizes the coming Black rule in America.

#602. The Morning After ‘Making It Rain’


All people throughout history have secretly desired the ability to control the weather. Farmers who saw their crop ruined due to droughts; high school football players who dreaded the 100 degree weather during two-a-days in the summer; and George W. Bush, just days before Katrina hit New Orleans, all wished the ability to manipulate the weather.

However, only Black people have mastered the idea of controlling precipitation and this amazing skill is known as “Making it Rain”:

“When you’re in da club with a stack (of money), and you throw the money up in the air at the strippers. The effect is that it seems to be raining money.”

Black people, particularly Black athletes, are highly adroit at channeling the weather Gods and creating a monetary monsoon at their command when visiting strip clubs.
Adam “Pacman” Jones, a prime example of the modern Black athlete, was involved in one particular magical evening, when he was able to conjure up a financial flood that reminded some people at the strip club of the old saying, “Apres-je, le deluge”:
“…what happened inside a Las Vegas strip club on Feb. 19, 2007, when Adam “Pacman” Jones showered scantily clad dancers with money. Just minutes after “making it rain,” Jones was involved in a fight inside the club. A short time later, three people were shot outside the club.
Shortly after 2 a.m. on Feb. 19, Jones and an entourage of about seven people — a group that included his stylist; his business manager, Chris Horvath; and Robert Reid, Jones’ massive bodyguard for the evening — arrived at the Minxx Gentlemen’s Club & Lounge…
Jones told police he arrived at the club with “close to $100,000.” He took $40,000 out of his Louis Vuitton bag and exchanged it for several stacks of $1 bills, which he put in a black trash bag, according to his statement. So much money was thrown onto the main stage that dancers, after their sets, started filling buckets with the loose bills covering the stage.”
Adam “Pacman” Jones uncanny ability to “make it rain” was upstaged by the exploits of fellow NFL player Vince Young, who also has the God-like ability to perform feats of down-pour of dollars at a moments whim:

“The last time a member of the Tennessee Titans decided to “make it rain” while hanging out at an event with Nelly — people got shot and lives were ruined. But Vince Young isn’t one to learn from other people’s mistakes…While onstage with the rapper during a performance in Houston last week, Vince rolled out a wad of cash and started showering the crowd with dollar bills. But unlike the incident with his former teammate Pacman Jones, everyone emerged unharmed this time.”

“Making It Rain” is a popular rap song, that contains these wonderful lyrics that allow the world to see how Black people can conjure up the ability to perform daring feats of weather manipulation:

“Oww Scottie lets make it rain on these niggas…

I’m in this bitch with the terror got a handful of stacks Better grab an umbrella

I make it rain, (I make it rain)

I make it rain on them hoes make it rain,(I make It rain)

I make it rain on them hoes I make it rain,(I make it rain)

I make it rain on them hoes I make it rain(I make it rain)

I make it rain on them hoes”

Black people – particulary Black athletes and rappers – can “make it rain” with an authority unlike any Indian chieftan performing the most elaborate rain dance. However, the idea of “making it rain” does have horrible ramifications, as the celebratory evening can leave devastating memories in the morning after, not to mention the financial lunacy of unloading massive amounts of cash with a low return on investment proposition.

The morning after “Making it Rain” can be a traumatic experience for Black people, as Pacman Jones found out:

“Police seized $81,020 in cash belonging to Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones, money they said sparked a melee and a triple shooting at a strip club over the weekend, court documents show

Jones was showering more than 40 strippers onstage at Minxx Gentlemen’s Club & Lounge early Monday with the cash “intended as a visual effect,” according to a search warrant. But a scuffle broke out when the Houston promoter who hired the strippers told them to pick the money up.”

Jones was suspended from the NFL for one year after this incident, and Vince Young has never recovered from his bout with “Making it Rain”, nearly committing suicide and losing his starting job to a white quarterback.

Stuff Black People Don’t Like includes the morning after “Making it Rain” for the ability to create spontaneous weather patterns yielding wads of cash for strippers, strips away the judgement skills of the person performing the feat. Yet, this is one of the few instances when Black people do leave a solid tip, however the ramifications the morning after are to great to warrant “Making it Rain”.

#112. The Reality of Clayton County


Clayton County, a thriving majority Black suburb of Atlanta, Georgia, has already been covered here at Stuff Black People Don’t Like. It is home to one of the shining examples of No Child Left Behind, as the Clayton County School System is the first system in the United States in the last 40 years to lose its accreditation.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the main paper in Atlanta that is losing thousands of subscribers each month, wrote this about Clayton County:

“In recent years, Clayton County has been. The school system lost its accreditation because of a “dysfunctional” board. Home foreclosures skyrocketed. And the African-American sheriff fired a large group of deputies, mostly white, after coming to office and marched them off with snipers on the roof.

Since then, Bell feuded incessantly with Sheriff Victor Hill and District Attorney Jewel Scott, both of whom defeated longtime incumbents who are white. The 2004 victories came after the county’s once majority-white voter pool grew to nearly 70 percent African-American.

For those incapable of reading those last paragraphs clearly, in Pre-Obama America – a country that Black people repudiated on November 4, 2008 by a margin of 96-1 – Black people were able to have snipers put on a roof and point their weapons at recently fired white police officers.

This is not a joke. Black people, led by Sheriff Victor Hill in 2005, celebrated the “liberation” of Clayton County from white rule and into the worthy hands of Black people dominion:

“Driven by an influx of African-American professionals to a suburb long steeped in Civil War history and legend, Clayton County opened the year with its first black-majority government, including the County Commission, district attorney, solicitor general, magistrate and sheriff.

”It’s a time of great excitement for the county,” said Wole Ralph, a black 27-year-old financial consultant whose first try for public office landed him a seat on the five-member commission.

But the celebratory moment in the land of Tara where Margaret Mitchell set her 1936 novel, ”Gone With the Wind,” has been all but eclipsed by the uproar over the new sheriff’s mass firing of 27 supervisors, deputies and correction officers, many of them white. They had been summoned by their new boss, Sheriff Victor Hill, to the Clayton County Jail on Monday under the pretext of being sworn in. Instead, they were relieved of their weapons, badges and official cars by armed colleagues and offered rides home in prisoner vans under the eyes of snipers posted on the roof.”

Since this wonderful moment for Black people, which preceded the election of Barack Obama by three years, Clayton County has lost its accreditation for its School System; had to pay $7 million in suits made by those white police officers who were illegally fired; and more importantly, rated second in the nation for subprime mortgages and highest for foreclosures in metro Atlanta:

“The national housing market meltdown was particularly cruel to Clayton residents. In June 2007, the county had the highest foreclosure rate in the metro region. It also ranked second in the nation for homes purchased with subprime mortgages, an astonishing 38.9 percent. By this May, one in 10 homes faced the risk of foreclosure.”

Worse – if it could be worse – is the crime wave that is plaguing Clayton County:

“The FBI’s report of a double-digit rise in violent crime in Clayton County stings a community already reeling from lost school accreditation and a staggering foreclosure rate.

It also foreshadows a possible spiraling out of economic control.

Violent crime in Clayton rose by 21 percent in 2007 to 1,366 reports, up from 1,126 in 2006, according to the federal report.

To the head of Clayton County’s Chamber of Commerce, the crime statistics are the final blow.”

Post-Obama America is marked by the most triumphant moment in mankind’s history – the election of Barack Hussein Obama, the Black version of Alexander the Great.

However, cities run by Black people, such as Detroit, Baltimore, Birmingham, Atlanta, Memphis and the Clayton County, Georgia, work to eradicate the notion that a post-racial era will ever occur in America.

If, as the scores of Black kids who attacked the white family in Akron, Ohio and yelled, “This is a Black world,” are correct in their assertion, then the example of Clayton County doesn’t bode well for that future.

Stuff Black People Don’t Like includes the reality of Clayton County, Georgia, because years of white flight from and Black migration into the county have made it a test case for Black rule in America.

The results, as discussed above, aren’t pretty.

#402. Being Dragged From Meetings

Black people in 21st century America have it pretty well. The media is completely on their side in every issue and will do whatever possible to try and agitate Black people against white people when given the chance.

Take for instance the case of two stories, separated by days. Black children were denied the right to swim at a private club, because they couldn’t swim and represented a hazard to the pool. Black people screamed about the trauma that would be inflicted upon these kids in the future for seeing racism up close.
Then, in Akron, Ohio on July 4th, a family of white people were attacked by scores of Black people, who chanted, “This is a Black world“. The father was hospitalized.
Now, try and ascertain which family or group of people will actually be traumatized by the experiences. Being denied swimming or being attacked and injured by scores of people who hated them?
Still though, the media’s handling of the stories listed above should alleviate any notion of the media being pro-white: as the Henry Louis Gates episode has shown all Black people, the media is firmly the friend of Black people in Post-Obama America.
However, one thing that Black people are not fond of is being accused of something and then having to be held responsible for that in a subsequent meeting:
“Leland Alderwoman Mala Brooks was dragged screaming for a Board of Aldermen meeting last week.
Last year, former Leland Mayor Barbara Brooks and her daughter, Mala Brooks, wrote several checks totaling nearly $12,000 without approval from the Board of Aldermen, current Leland Mayor James Lowe said. The two went to the Mississippi Coast and stayed at the Beau Rivage Casino and Resort for a conference, but the Board of Aldermen hadn’t given approval to the trip, Lowe said.Two weeks ago, the city asked the two to pay the nearly $12,000 back. Mala Brooks said the checks involved payments for legitimate expenses.”
Brooks, who is Black, refused to cooperate with the police and instead carried on like a child denied chicken wings and caused a major scene. She even called the people – all are Black – who were responsible for her undoing:

“racists evil Black ni**ers in here”


Once again, had Brooks visited Stuff Black People Don’t Like, she could have followed the advice that Rodney King, Henry Gates and countless other Black people have failed to do: cooperate with the police.

Instead, Brooks has been another example of Stuff Black People Don’t Like: being dragged from meetings.

#62. “Hate Facts”


Admit it, whenever you see the nightly news cast that corresponds with the major city you live closest to and a story about a horrible murder or horrifying crime is broadcast your first inclination is a Black person did it.

Black people know the chances your hypothesis is correct are close to 100 percent. Whenever white people discuss crime together or the most recent murder in their town, they speak in hushed dialect and a usually posed with the same query: “Was it a Black person?” or with the declaration; “it must have been a Black person.”

Black people at work always look at their white counterparts congregating around the water cooler and wonder what they are discussing. “It is probably something about me,” the Black person thinks to himself, “they wonder if I’m here because of affirmative action.”

Black people dislike, no, they wish to see the criminalization of “Hate Facts“:

“that is, facts that no one refutes but everyone ignores because of their connotation.”

Black people don’t like to discuss hate facts, because they point to uncomfortable truths about The United States of America and the quadrillions that have been spent trying to eradicate the racial gap in learning since The Great Society was launched in the 1960s.

Black people don’t like to discuss hate facts, because they point to much different conclusions on crime in America and the causes of the high rates of murder in the Black community and the incredible epidemic of Black-on-white murder across the America.

Black people consider any conversation about race that paints Black people in a negative light, that also relies heavily on documented and irrefutable facts as definable as a “Hate Fact” debate and thus null and void.

Only disingenuous white liberals may discuss race with Black people, albeit in lukewarm terms and without any mention of “Hate Facts” in the dialogue at all.

Recently, President Barack Hussein Obama addressed the NAACP at its 100th anniversary gala, and said a number of things that one commentator, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, said of:

You know, a white guy can’t say that. I mean that. It’s very hard for somebody like me to make that speech.”

Obama, said in that speech:

“We’ve got to say to our children, “Yes, if you’re African American, the odds of growing up amid crimes and gangs are higher. Yes, if you live in a poor neighborhood, you will face challenges that somebody in a wealthy suburb does not have to face. But that’s not a reason to get bad grades. That’s not a reason to cut class. That’s not a reason to give up on your education and drop out of school. No one has written your destiny for you. Your destiny is in your hands. You cannot forget that.” That’s what we have to teach all of our children. No excuses!”As Matthews made clear – and he is a disingenuous white liberal – a white person can not say the things Obama said to his Black counterparts. They constitute “Hate Facts”, are in polite society, they are to be ignored, much like the vagabond asking for change.

Black people know that white people (and many Black people) believe that the corruption of major cities – which have majority Black populations – is the sole responsibility of those governing themselves and that white racism is not to blame.

In some major cities, such as Washington D.C., Atlanta, Detroit and Birmingham, the corruption of Black people is so pungent that it is almost palpable. But to even point out that major cities such as Birmingham are in trouble because of the racial composition of the city is a “Hate Fact” and therefore not part of the accepted vernacular of the Post-Obama America.

“Hate Facts” included the use of gratuitous Black crimes, such as the one in Akron, Ohio, against a white family by scores of Black people, chanting, “This is a Black world.” It is considered a “Hate Fact” to even consider pointing out media double standards in how crime is reported.

“Hate Facts” include criticism of affirmative action, as this noble practice is the penalty for centuries of abuse towards non-whites by white people and is perfectly acceptable as a form of punishment against white males. To criticise affirmative action is to engage in “Hate Facts” usage and Black people find that offensive.

Black people consider any undue criticism of them – regardless of the legitimacy of the facts at hand – as relying on “Hate Fact’s” to make your point and thus disqualifying from the debate.

Consider, in the Health Care Bill that is being discussed currently in Washington, affirmative action will be codified into law as to how federal funds will be allocated to colleges and universities in forms of grants government contracts:

“In awarding grants or contracts under this section, the Secretary shall give preference to entities that have a demonstrated record of the following: . . . Training individuals who are from underrepresented minority groups or disadvantaged backgrounds.”

In Post-Obama America, merely pointing out that the Federal Government is about to engage in the reckless legalization of total discrimination against white males is a “Hate Fact”.

Black people are well aware that “Hate Facts” are true and that a Faustian pact between disingenuous white liberals and Black people was made long ago. Rumors of a painting commemorating this event have surfaced, but this image is hidden from public for fear that Oscar Wilde’s imaginative idea behind the book “The Portrait of Dorian Gray” has taken hold of the painting, bespeaking the horrible reality of integrated America in 2009.

For “Hate Facts” to be allowed into the discussion of race relations in contemporary America would be a sin greater than any mentioned in the Bible and that is reason Stuff Black People Don’t Like includes this idea: for all Black people know the reality of race, but Black people don’t want white people to grasp that same concept.

#99. Cooperating with Police

Black people don’t like to be told what to do. This is a fact and an irrefutable one. They were told to sit in the back of the bus, and refused. They were told to not eat at the same restaurants as others, and they refused.

They were told not violate the anti-miscegenation laws of states and they refused. They have been told not to violate the laws of the United States of America, and yet, they refuse steadfastly.
More so, Black people have been told to cooperate with the police, the only protection that law abiding citizens have from the miscreants of society, and yet Black people retain that stubborn streak and refuse to comply with police demands.
Rodney King, the man who started one of the biggest riots in the past thirty years, could have avoided his fate – and absolved Los Angeles from over $1 billion worth of damagebut he failed to cooperate with police:

“The truth is more complicated. There were three people in King’s car that night. After the 8-mile high-speed chase on which King led the California Highway Patrol and the Los Angeles police, a CHP officer demanded that everyone get out of the car with his hands on his head. King’s passengers did as they were told. King, for reasons that remain mysterious, refused to comply and did not speak intelligibly to the officer. An ex-con on probation, King certainly knew the arrest drill. He says he smoked dope and drank malt liquor that night. The police were convinced that he was high on PCP.

The whole world thinks that the police next engaged in an orgy of violence. But that is because the first 13 seconds of the tape — which showed King charging at Officer Laurence Powell — were edited out. The first jury saw the whole tape.

King simply would not get down. The police accordingly escalated their violence. They attempted a maneuver called the swarm, in which four officers would overcome King. He was able to throw them off. Sgt. Stacey Koon, the officer in charge, next attempted to subdue King with a Taser. It had no effect. Frightened now of this large and seemingly preternaturally strong suspect, the officers began to hit him with their batons, all the while shouting for him to get down on the ground. King continued to stay up on all fours. Powell told the first jury that he feared King was going to wrest his gun away from him, leading to a shooting.”

Had Rodney King just acknowledged the police officers with a simple ‘yes sir’, instead of being obstinate, he wouldn’t have been beaten, sent to jail and then directly caused a massive riot that left many devoid of their lives.
Another recent example of a Black person failing to cooperate with the police is Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, a Black man who is perpetually incapable of dealing with any situation without finding the acrid scent of racism attached to it. He is a vital part of the Black community in America and respected for his strong stances in defense of his people, and yet, in a recent incident with police, he showed himself to be yet another SBPDL example of not cooperating with police.
Gates was trying to enter his home, and to his neighbors it appeared a Black person was breaking into his home. They called the police. What follows is a great example of why you should cooperate with the police and also why you should not berate them, regardless of your skin color or your stance in the professional race racketeering industry:

“As soon as Officer Crowley arrived and got to the front door, he encountered, standing inside the door, none other than Gates, who instantly began yelling at him in an extremely loud voice that he was a “racist police officer.” Instead of defusing the situation by cooperating with the officer, who was, after all, only doing his job, instead of simply explaining politely that he lived in the house and that his house had not been broken into (though it’s still not clear who the two young men were), Gates continued his “tumultuous,” threatening (“you don’t know who I am, you’ll be sorry for messing with me”), and extremely insulting behavior for a long time, first inside the house, where his voice was so loud that the officer could not conduct a conversation over his police radio, then outside the house, alarming passersby, until, after warning Gates twice that he was behaving disorderly, Crowley arrested him. And during the whole time Gates kept bellowing that Crowley was a “racist police officer.”Also, from early on in the incident, Officer Crowley repeatedly began to leave Gates’ house, but Gates stopped him, insisting that Crowley first tell him his name. But each time Crowley gave his name, Gates kept shouting so loudly that he couldn’t hear the officer’s answer. And when Crowley would again start to leave the house, Gates would again demand his name.”


Gates was of course arrested, sparking national coverage of the victim hood of Mr. Gates at the hands of the racist police. In a world run by evil white supremacists - as so many Black people believe America is run by – Mr. Gates would have had a black bag put over head and shot for his insolence. Instead, the truth of Gates’ uncooperative attitude with the police has been silenced and the supposed racial angle of the profiling of a Black man – even more so one who is a ‘respected’ Black scholar – has been the focal point of the story.

Black people do not yet understand that in Post-Obama America, they run the show and call the shots and have a complicit media prepared to cover up any negative portrayal of Black people. The media will showcase only positive images of Black people, even when a prominent Black person does not cooperate with the police. White racism will always be the culcript, not a Black person failing to cooperate with the police and yelling at him and calling him a racist for daring to arrest a great Black scholar.

They can in turn make the story one of racial profiling, instead of yet another example of Stuff Black People Don’t Like; cooperating with the police. Even in Pre-Obama America, as evidenced by the Rodney King affair, the truth of any crime and not cooperating with the police was made to look like another example of white racism, not Black people failing to cooperate with the police.

**********************

1. Stockpiling helps. but you never know how long trouble will last, so locate near renewable food sources.

2. Living near a well with a manual pump is like being in Eden.

3. After a while, even gold can lose its luster. But there is no luxury in war quite like toilet paper. Its’ value is greater than gold’s.

4. If you had to go without one utility, lose electricity – it’s the easiest to do without (unless you’re in a very nice climate with no need for heat.)

5. Canned foods are awesome, especially if their contents are tasty without heating. One of the best things to stockpile is canned gravy – it makes a lot of the dry unappetizing things you will find to eat in the Crisis of Obama somewhat edible. Only needs enough heat to warm, not to cook. It’s cheap too, especially if you buy it in bulk.

6. Bring some books – escapist ones like romance or mysteries become more valuable as the Obama Crisis continues. Sure, it’s great to have a lot of survival guides, but you’ll figure most of that out on your own anyway – trust me, you’ll have a lot of time on your hands.

7. The feeling that you’re human can fade pretty fast. I can’t tell you how many people I knew who would have traded a much needed meal for just a little bit of toothpaste, rouge, soap or cologne. Not much point in surviving if you have to lose your humanity. These things are morale-builders like nothing else.

8. Slow burning candles and matches, matches, matches…

Locust:

I can see everything is now happening just as it should, those that have awoken to the collapse are buying up everything they can to survive what’s coming, and most importantly guns and ammo for the ethnic cleansing that will be needed to retake our nation, guns that will be needed to kill the parasites and white liberals.  All those pieces of shit out there, stupid white liberals bastards that deserve nothing more then a bullet in the head. I cannot wait for the shit to hit the fan, I have been praying for this day for years, and now I can clearly see it coming down the road, we don’t have to wait, it will happen during the monkeys first term or within a year of his 2nd term.  I have so many people on my list of white liberals and parasites that must be cleansed, so many and I will take my time, and send them off based on how much anger I have for what they are, and what they have done to destroy my nation, and they know what’s coming, they just don’t have the stones to prepare, for if they did it would destroy everything they believe in, it would be an admission of guilt on their part, and it would mean that we will be coming for them.  I have already begun buy many guns and hundreds of rounds of ammo, eventually thousands of rounds. I have be dreaming of all the ways I can finally put these animals down, once and for all, no turning back, slow, painful, ways that will stitch the last hours of their life in my own memory, and punish them in the most severe manner possible.  Their mere existence is a crime in my mind, their offspring is a kick in the balls for my civilization, and every day they breath is a crime against humanity, I could say its gods will, but that would be too much, it’s the will of reality, if reality were a living thing, it would demand we put them down, nature would praise us, and god would reward us.  I can see the rivers of blood flowing out of the coastal cities into the pacific and Atlantic ocean, I can see our people arming themselves and finally putting realism where it belongs, in reality.  I can finally see what is to come.

Democrats Shroud the Truth, the Better to Bury Us

Democrats Shroud the Truth, the Better to Bury Us

by Dymphna

This Democrat-controlled Congress is proving more and more picayune and pettifogging.

Unlike those times when the Republicans were in the majority and played by the rules, these feckless Dems look for new ways to obfuscate and delay, or to rush to pass laws and steamroll their opponents.

But then for the last generation or so the Democrat party has been opportunistic. As an example, they dragged their feet most dishonorably during the legislative battles over the Racial Equality Act of 1964. Once the law passed (through the Herculean efforts of the Party of Lincoln) Dems not only got on the bandwagon, they took over the reins. They did this through fear-mongering, shoving through federal legislation that would prove to infantilize the black minority by “protecting” them against the rich, country club Republicans. By such means they secured the black vote and have owned it ever since. The Republicans never saw it coming.

Up until that point, most self-respecting black people were conservative and Republican. Socially, they’re still conservatives, but they trust the federal government to take care of them and they do not trust local government to be color-blind, even when blacks are the local government. See Detroit and Washington, D.C. for prime examples of how this operates.

Obamacare Chart
Such is my preface for the latest pettiness of the Dems in the 111th Congress. The Republicans have created a most entertaining (and scary) chart of what will happen in this country under ObamaCare. A picture being worth a thousand words from a gasbag, the Republican members of Congress wish to send this informative chart to their constituents, using their franking privileges to do so [click on image for larger .pdf version]

From Roll Call:
- – – - – – – – -

Democrats are preventing Republican House Members from sending their constituents a mailing that is critical of the majority’s health care reform plan, blocking the mailing by alleging that it is inaccurate.

House Republicans are crying foul and claiming that the Democrats are using their majority to prevent GOP Members from communicating with their constituents.

The dispute centers on a chart created by Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) and Republican staff of the Joint Economic Committee to illustrate the organization of the Democratic health care plan.

At first glance, Brady’s chart resembles a board game: a colorful collection of shapes and images with a web of lines connecting them.

But a closer look at the image reveals a complicated menagerie of government offices and programs that Republicans say will be created if the leading Democratic health care plan becomes law.

In a memo sent Monday to Republicans on the House franking commission, Democrats argue that sending the chart to constituents as official mail would violate House rules because the information is misleading.

[…]

The dispute over Brady’s chart is being reviewed by the franking commission, which must approve any mail before it can be sent. No decision had been made on the matter by press time.

Brady adamantly denied that the chart was misleading and said Democrats are simply threatened by the content of the graphic.

“I think their review was laughable,” Brady said. “It’s … downright false in most of the cases. The chart depicts their health care plan as their committees developed it.”

“The chart reveals how their health care bureaucracy works, and people are frightened by it,” he added. “So this is their effort to try and discredit” the chart.

Republican Members have made 20 requests to mail a version of the chart to their constituents and have been told that the requests are being delayed while the commission reviews allegations that the chart is misleading.

“Hiding the truth about wildly unpopular policies is a Democrat specialty,” said one GOP aide. “I’d like to see the flow chart on how Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi plans on implementing the open and transparent government she keeps promising everyone.”

“We have initiated discussions with the minority to try and resolve current differences and are operating in good faith to achieve that goal,” said Kyle Anderson, a spokesman for House Administration Chairman Robert Brady (D-Pa.). The committee has oversight of the commission.

Rep. Dan Lungren (R-Calif.), ranking member of the committee and a member of the franking commission, said through a spokeswoman that he is also aware of the situation and is working with the members of the franking commission to resolve the differences, but he added that he believed Democrats on the commission were overreaching.

That chart is a transparent illustration of what will become of us under the socialist medical care the Dems have planned for the rest of us. Remember, none of these rules will apply to Congress, who will continue to have the very best medical care and coverage in the country. This one is for us hoi polloi; it will not affect any Congressman’s health benefits.

No wonder they want to shroud the truth in preparation to burying it…and us.


This situation demonstrates a weakness in the Republican Party. The Dems are masters of propaganda, always have been. The Republicans, above all that and not wanting to get their skirts muddied, have been slow to catch on to any technology and use it to their advantage.

You could see this in the elections in 1960. Kennedy’s team had the concept of appearances well in hand, despite the reality of Bobby’s thuggish attacks. You could see it in the last election as McCain proved to be a technophobe.

We can see it in operation in this case: the Republicans have created a wonderful image, a great illustration of the future. And what do they do? Bury it in a .pdf that is hell to scrape out and pass around in emails, or put up on Facebook pages.

Get a clue, you guys in the Republican National Committee. Quit mumbling “me, too” and strike out on your own for a change. Those lines you see when you look in the mirror are the tire tracks of Dem steamrollers.

For a good look at a state Republican who has mastered the medium, see the Pubs’ candidate for governor of Virginia. McDonnell is leading a good race, keeping his opponent on the defensive. For example, he’s a good debater and his voice has that generic Eastern seaboard accent. His opponent, a country boy from the rural southwestern part of the state, is not going to go over well with the urban Democrats in Northern Virginia. When Mr. Deeds opens his mouth and they hear that country twang, northern Virginians will turn off. Thus, Mr. McDonnell has challenged him to ten debates. Mr. Deeds is desperate to limit their face-offs to three.

In fact, McDonnell looks so good that he has attracted the endorsement of Virginia’s only black billionaire, who also happens to be a Democrat. Sheila Johnson is crossing party lines to support Mr. McDonnell.

The deep and wide Democrat coffers will do little good against the likes of Ms. Johnson. Makes you wonder: will Obie show up in Virginia to campaign for Deeds? Should be interesting. One thing is for sure: if he does, it won’t be in rural areas.

How UC Bureaucrats Use Advanced Placement Tests To Help Asians, Hurt Whites

How UC Bureaucrats Use Advanced Placement Tests To Help Asians, Hurt Whites

By Steve Sailer

My VDARE.com article last week on Advanced Placement (AP) tests provoked my favorite type of letter: one that tells me I don’t know what I’m talking about and then proceeds to be so informative that I finally do know.

I focused on AP tests’ emergence as a sort of tacit tracking mechanism for high schools and the sharp racial differences in students’ taking and passing them.

My correspondent, a test tutor called Mitchell Carr, emails:

“I know more about AP, SAT, and ACT test scores and their use in college admissions than you do, and that’s saying a lot. … Your AP article’s focus is totally screwy … The public policy issue about AP has nothing to do with the pass rate of APs, but rather AP’s influence on college admissions via Grade Point Average (GPA).”

Carr proceeds to document that the proliferation of Advanced Placement classes in high schools has harmed the chances to get into the University of California of white (and to some extent middle class black and Hispanic) kids. It benefits some inner city blacks and Latinos—but mostly it boosts upscale Asians. Result: as USA Today reported in April:

Asian-Americans are the single largest ethnic group among UC’s 173,000 undergraduates. In 2008, they accounted for 40% at UCLA and 43% at UC Berkeley — the two most selective campuses in the UC system — as well as 50% at UC San Diego and 54% at UC Irvine. Asian-Americans are about 12% of California’s population …” [University of Calif. admissions rule angers Asian-Americans, April 24, 2009]

Why? It’s largely due to a complicated (and, not surprisingly, not terribly competent) ploy by University of California administrators to get around the ban on affirmative action in government imposed by California voters in 1996. Their stratagems have been quickly deciphered by workaholic Asians. As the May 2008 Minutes of the University of California Academic Council state, “… Asian students seem to be very good at figuring out the technical requirements of UC eligibility.”

Admissions to the nine University of California campuses are a big deal for several reasons:

  • California makes up one-eighth of the population of the country
  • Tuition for California residents at world-famous UC Berkeley or UCLA is still under $10,000 per year, which means that Californians who win admission can save huge sums relative to comparably prestigious colleges.
  • Taken as a whole, the University of California ranks with Harvard as the most influential institution of higher learning. My correspondent Carr writes: “Whatever the UC does trickles down to everyone else”.

For example, when UC President Richard C. Atkinson noticed his “granddaughter, then in 6th grade, already diligently preparing for the SAT by testing herself on long lists of verbal analogies”, he wrote an Op-Ed [PDF] criticizing the make-up of the SAT. To please their largest customer, the College Board quickly dropped the useful analogy questions and added the expensive and dubious Writing section.

Ever since Proposition 209, UC administrators have searched for sneakier ways to admit more Latinos and blacks. The California Latino Legislative Caucus made clear to the UC Board of Regents that they’d better manipulate the system to admit more Hispanics or they’d have their budget cut.

In response, Carr emails me, the UC schools downplayed absolute test scores in favor of relativistic high school grades: “Once affirmative action was outlawed, UCs made GPA ever more important, and it now represents 75% of admissions decisions.”

Berkeley education professors Saul Geiser and Maria Veronica Santelices confirmed that in a 2007 study, Validity of High-School Grades in Predicting Student Success beyond the Freshman Year [PDF]:

“After California voters approved Proposition 209 in 1995, former UC President Richard Atkinson … instituted several major changes in admissions policy that became effective in 2001. UC introduced ‘comprehensive review,’ an admissions policy that more systematically took into account the impact of socioeconomic factors, such as parents’ education and family income, on students’ test scores and related indicators of academic achievement.”

Thus UCLA, which gets more applications than any other college in America, started giving brownie points to applicants claiming to have been shot. (For some reason, I doubt that hunting accidents count.) Geiser and Santelices continue:

“UC also revised its Eligibility Index, a numerical scale which sets minimum HSGPA [High School GPA] and test-score requirements for admission to the UC system; the revised index gave roughly three-quarters of the weight to HSGPA and the remainder to standardized tests.”

UC’s purpose, of course, was to let in more Non-Asian Minority students (NAMs). It’s easy to earn a high GPA at inner city high schools because students are graded on the curve and there’s so little competition. Some NAMs attend schools where the valedictorian’s SAT score (Math plus Verbal) might not reach 1000, which is roughly the minimum level at which it’s plausible to consider a four year degree anywhere—much less at the notoriously unaccommodating UC campuses.

In 2004, for instance, among the 1041 seniors at the three high schools in Compton, CA (birthplace of the Crips gang and West Coast gangsta rap), a grand total of fourteen 12th graders scored 1000 or higher (which is the equivalent of 890 under the tougher scoring system used before 1995):

Moreover, my correspondent Mitchell Carr adds, UC adopted

“… a new policy called ‘Eligibility in the Local Context’, which extended eligibility for UC admission to the top four percent of graduates from each California high school.”

So Compton’s three high schools automatically get 42 students admitted to UC schools—even though 28 of them have three-digit SAT scores and will likely flunk out.

Yet this California policy of automatically letting in the top four percent of each school isn’t as bad as the top ten percent policy in Texas. That was pushed through in the 1990s by Gov. George W. Bush (where have we heard that name before?) to sleaze around a court ruling banning quotas.

Inevitably, UC’s decision to give more weight to grades led to schools engaging in a grade inflation arms race. The main trick: classes designated “AP” by the high schools come with a “bonus point” when calculating GPA. That makes an A in an AP class worth 5 on the traditional 0 to 4 scale. Thus, freshmen admitted to UC Berkeley in 2003 averaged an absurd GPA of 4.31 on a 0 to 4 scale.

Of course, there’s no evidence that giving AP classes a bonus point helps UC make better admissions decisions. Geiser and Santelices found in 2004 [The Role Of Advanced Placement And Honors Courses In College Admissions (PDF)] that a multiple regression model counting bonus points for AP classes did a worse job of predicting college freshmen’s GPA than one that simply ignored bonus points.

But, again, the UC administrators don’t want better students—they want minority students.

Moreover, the University of California admissions process gives no weight to getting a good score on the actual AP Test. Hence the rush by many high schools to rig the system by sticking the “AP” label on sundry mediocre classes.

My correspondent argues:

“The emphasis on GPA allows predominantly Under-Represented Minority schools (inner city and charter schools, mostly) to call a course an AP course but in fact teach something very different. (The AP curriculum checks are a joke.) But it allows their students to present transcripts to colleges with high GPAs. The colleges know they are a joke, but it gives them affirmative action cover.”

For example, I’ve seen a document (not online) from a typical California public high school with a couple of thousand students, mostly Hispanic. Last year, 400 students received letter grades in classes designated Advanced Placement. (I’m not counting Spanish Language AP courses here, which have less to do with education than with gifts to immigrants. I’m also excluding the school’s more exclusive magnet programs.)

Here’s a chart summarizing report card grades awarded by the school in its official AP classes versus the scores earned by these same students on the actual College Board AP Tests.

AP Class Grade

AP Test Score

A or 5

30%

3%

B or 4

31%

5%

C or 3

26%

16%

D or 2

9%

27%

F or 1 / Not Taken

4%

49%

In other words, this public school bestowed As (counting as 5s for UC admissions purposes) upon 30 percent of its students taking AP classes. Nonetheless, only three percent scored 5s on their AP Tests.

Only 8 percent scored 4s or 5s. And only 24 percent simply passed the AP tests with a 3 or better.

Similarly, only 4 percent of report card grades were Fs. On the other hand, 49 percent of the school’s AP students either scored the minimum 1 on the AP Test (33 percent) or didn’t even attempt it (15 percent)

The average GPA in this high school’s AP classes was a 3.7. In contrast, the average AP score, counting AP students who didn’t take the test as 1s, was 1.7 on the 1 to 5 scale, or the equivalent of a D- in a typical college intro class.

Still, these AP scores aren’t bad by public school standards. In 2006, the Washington Post reported about one local high school: “Last year, 59 of 60 tests taken at Potomac drew a score of 1, the lowest on the 5-point scale.” [Pair Crack AP Test Barrier By Daniel de Vise, September 1, 2006]

In contrast, my younger son’s quite rigorous high school calls few classes “AP” because it doesn’t want to impose the College Board’s curriculum on its star teachers. Furthermore, unlike so many schools, it doesn’t want to pretend it’s teaching the AP curriculum when it isn’t. And the school flat doesn’t like grade inflation, which gives students swelled heads.

Instead, this school gives a more reasonable 0.3 point GPA boost for taking an “Honors” class. Yet, its typical student takes four to five AP tests during his career, and averages 4.3 out of 5.

Clearly, the name of the class matters less than the quality of the teacher and students.

At this school, it’s not uncommon for students to get higher scores on AP Tests than they get grades on their report cards.

This honest grading gives them a better picture of what competition will be like in UC colleges—but not a better chance of getting into one in the first place.

AP classes for Non-Asian Minorities have been heavily pushed over the last decade. For example, Jay Matthews, the education reporter for the Washington Post, [click here and scroll down for Peter Brimelow’s review of his review of Worm In The Apple] created his Challenge Index that Newsweek turned into its annual Best Public High Schools in America cover story. The Index’s formula is derisible:

“The number of Advanced Placement, Intl. Baccalaureate, and/or Cambridge tests taken by all students at a school in 2007 divided by the number of graduating seniors.”

In other words, it doesn’t matter whether the students pass the test, just that they take the test. Mitchell Carr scoffs in his email to me:

“Lots of low-income schools with hideous average SAT scores and horrible academic stats make the Newsweek Challenge Index, which leads to thousands of AP tests being turned in with randomly bubbled-in multiple-choice sections and “THEY MADE ME TAKE THIS TEST” scribbled across an otherwise empty essay section.”

Carr comments:

“The lack of control of content allows low performing schools to just label courses ‘AP,’ while high performing schools often strictly ration access for their own purposes.”

Worse,

“Many high achieving kids in competitive schools, to say nothing of reasonably bright but not hyper-motivated kids, are not getting access to AP classes.”

Middle class black and Hispanic families in expensive suburbs are particularly hard hit by this rationing of AP classes. Carr writes:

“Suburban minority students often have respectable SAT/ACT scores coupled with God-awful GPAs. … UC Berkeley could almost certainly get better-educated minorities by looking in Palo Alto than Oakland. But the NAM kids in Paly will have awful grades.”

Paradoxically, the big winners from the UC’s attempt to discriminate in favor of Non-Asian Minorities are…Asian Minorities. Carr points out:

“Once GPA became increasingly important in UC admissions, the strongest kids started taking all the AP courses they could, because of the bonus points. The irony, of course, is that grades became important because of the low achieving kids, but the public universities have to be consistent, so it rippled up. The emphasis on GPA after affirmative action was banned is the reason for the explosion of Asian students—Asians have much higher GPAs than whites (but not much higher test scores, for the most part).”

Carr notes:

“Fifteen years ago, a student with outstanding test scores and a high 3.8 GPA in AP courses could get into UC Berkeley. Today, a student who doesn’t have higher than a 4.0 doesn’t have a chance at Berkeley unless he’s a NAM or an athlete.”

Asians tend to be harder working, more organized, more conformist, and more devoted to gaming the system. In contrast, white Americans tend to have a touching faith that experts have no doubt devised fair methods for selection, so it wouldn’t be sporting to try to find an edge … an assumption that immigrants find most amusing.

Carr continues:

“As for the reason white students are underrepresented in AP classes, it’s probably because access is granted by GPA in most suburban schools. Asians have a better GPA, while not higher competence, than whites, and this keeps whites (particularly boys) from getting into AP classes. Parents can challenge this, but few choose to—because few white parents understand the impact that AP has on GPA.”

Thus, Asians take three times as many AP Tests as whites per capita. Yet, passing rates on the AP Tests are almost identical, suggesting that whites could take a lot more AP classes if they merely got their acts together.

Currently, the UC system is talking about changing the admissions rules to make the process even more subjective—no doubt so that even more NAMs are eligible for admission.

Asian-American advocates”, always looking out for the interests of Asian-Americans, are strenuously protesting. USA Today notes:

“Asian-American advocates, parents and lawmakers are angrily calling on the university to rescind the policy … They point to a UC projection that said the new standards would sharply reduce Asian-American admissions while resulting in little change for blacks and Hispanics, and a big gain for white students. ‘I like to call it affirmative action for whites,’ said Ling-chi Wang, [Email him] a retired professor at UC Berkeley. ‘I think it’s extremely unfair to Asian-Americans on the one hand and underrepresented minorities on the other.’

Yeah—it would be grossly unfair for the primary taxpayers of California to become less underrepresented in the universities they built.

For that matter, what have white guys ever done for the human race? I mean, besides antibiotics and electromagnetism and almost all the other good ideas of the last 500 years

The un-PC truth: If anybody cares about where the next set of creative ideas that will shake up the world will come from, then we ought to be thinking about the next generation of white guys.

Sure, the kids from intact upper middle class families won’t have much more than the usual trouble. But there are an awful lot of white boys being raised today by single moms who can’t quite figure out males, and don’t have the energy left over to figure out how to game the system for them, either.

And these kids are growing up in a culture where “white boys” are portrayed as either bad guys or buffoons.

Why put up with the hassle? There are more video games than ever to disappear into.

In summary, when it comes to university admissions, it’s time to read the fine print.

There are no “White American advocates” to to do it for you.

Socialist America Sinking

Socialist America Sinking

By Patrick J. Buchanan

After half a century of fighting encroachments upon freedom in America, journalist Garet Garrett published The People’s Pottage.  A year later, in 1954, he died.  The People’s Pottage opens thus:

“There are those who still think they are holding the pass against a revolution that may be coming up the road. But they are gazing in the wrong direction. The revolution is behind them. It went by in the Night of Depression, singing songs to freedom.” [Full book, PDF]

Garrett wrote of a revolution within the form. While outwardly America appeared the same, a revolution within had taken place that was now irreversible. One need only glance at where we were before the New Deal, where we are and where we are headed to see how far we are off the course the Founding Fathers set for our republic.

Taxes drove the American Revolution, for we were a taxaphobic, liberty-loving people. That government is best that governs least is an Americanism. When “Silent Cal” Coolidge went home in 1929, the U.S. government was spending 3 percent of gross domestic product.

And today? Obama’s first budget will consume 28 percent of the entire GDP; state and local governments another 15 percent. While there is some overlap, in 2009, government will consume 40 percent of GDP, approaching the peak of World War II.

The deficit for 2009 is $1.8 trillion, 13 percent of the whole economy. Obama is pushing a cap-and-trade bill to cut carbon emissions that will impose huge costs on energy production, spike consumer prices and drive production offshore to China, which is opting out of Kyoto II. The Chinese are not fools.

Obama plans to repeal the Bush tax cuts and take the income tax rate to near 40 percent. Combined state and local income tax rates can run to 10 percent. For the self-employed, payroll taxes add up to 15.2 percent on the first $106,800 for all wages of all workers. Medicare takes 2.9 percent of all wages above that. Then there are the state sales taxes that can run to 8 percent, property taxes, gas taxes, excise taxes, and “sin taxes” on booze, cigarettes and, soon, hot dogs and soft drinks.

Comes now national health insurance from Nancy Pelosi’s House. A surtax that runs to 5.4 percent of all earnings of the top 1 percent of Americans, who already pay 40 percent of all federal income taxes, has been sent to the Senate. Included also is an 8 percent tax on the entire payroll of small businesses that fail to provide health insurance for employees.

Other ideas on the table include taxing the health benefits that businesses provide their employees.

The D.C.-based Tax Foundation says New Yorkers could face a combined income tax rate of near 60 percent.

In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson called George III a tyrant for having “erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.”

What did George III do with his Stamp Act, Townshend Acts or tea tax to compare with what is being done to this generation of Americans by their own government?

While the hardest working and most productive are bled, a third of all wage-earners pay no U.S. income tax, and Obama plans to free almost half of all wage-earners of all income taxes. Yet, tens of millions get Medicaid, rent supplements, free education, food stamps, welfare and an annual check from Uncle Sam called an Earned Income Tax Credit, though they never paid a nickel in income taxes.

Oh, yes. Obama also promises everybody a college education.

Coming to America to feast on this cornucopia of freebies is the world. One million to 2 million immigrants, legal and illegal, arrive every year. They come with fewer skills and less education than Americans, and consume more tax dollars than they contribute by three to one.

Wise Latina women have more babies north of the border than they do in Mexico and twice as many here as American women.

As almost all immigrants are now Third World people of color, they qualify for ethnic preferences in hiring and promotions and admissions to college over the children of Americans

All of this would have astounded and appalled the Founding Fathers, who after all, created America—as they declared loud and clear in the Constitution—for ourselves and our posterity.”

China saves, invests and grows at 8 percent. America, awash in debt, has a shrinking economy, a huge trade deficit, a gutted industrial base, an unemployment rate surging toward 10 percent and a money supply that’s swollen to double its size in a year. The 20th century may have been the American Century. The 21st shows another pattern.

“The United States is declining as a nation and a world power with mostly sighs and shrugs to mark this seismic event,” writes Les Gelb, president emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations, in CFR’s Foreign Affairs magazine. “Astonishingly, some people do not appear to realize that the situation is all that serious.”[Necessity, Choice, and Common Sense, May/June 2009]

Even the establishment is starting to get the message.

Captive Teenagers Comment On Craig Bodeker’s “Conversation About Race”

Captive Teenagers Comment On Craig Bodeker’s “Conversation About Race

By Athena Kerry

Which of the following actions would you expect to be labeled as “racist” by a normal person?

  1. A woman notices a man walking in her neighborhood. She makes a mental note that his race is different from the people usually seen walking around in this area.
  2. A woman is engaged in conversation with a co-worker, who responds by saying “Yeah, sister, I understand what you mean”.
  3. A man comments to another man at a club, “You’re a good dancer”.
  4. When asked what he would do as “immigration czar” of America, a young man responds “deport them all!”

Stumped? The answer, according to the interviewees in Craig Bodeker’s documentary A Conversation about Race is every situation except #4.

Startling? On its face, yes. But VDARE.COM readers shouldn’t find too much comfort in #4. Here’s some extra information: the woman in situation #1, the co-worker in situation #2 and the compliment giver in situation #3 are whites while the noticed man, the sister co-worker, the dancer in the club and the potential immigration czar are black.

Now it’s not so surprising. Even #4’s immigration czar would be easily identified as a “racist” if he were white. But he’s black—so he can’t be a racist!

(Don’t laugh. Obama Attorney General Eric Holder has just testified that only whites can be guilty of hate crimes).

Bodeker’s excellent debut documentary is intended to demonstrate the “disconnects” and double standards inherent in the “anti-racists’” belief system. The term “belief system” is used intentionally, since the interviewees say that racism is “all around them, everywhere all the time” and yet are unable to come up with any definition of the word or examples of it in action.

Peter Brimelow once defined a racist as “someone winning an argument with a liberal. Well, as Bodeker discovers, that’s just the beginning:

  • “Racism is when we chop ourselves into categories…when you really look at the quantum level or the basic fabric of the universe there is no separation. I am you, I am the chair, I am the wall, I’m the rug, I’m the rock, I’m the tree, I’m the grass.”
  • “It’s as if saying, once I’ve put a boundary, you and I can no longer communicate.”
  • “Racism could be anything, like I could be racist against him per se, he could be gay and I could be straight. That’s still racism.”

Strikingly, the most dogmatic “anti-racist” interviewed was also the prettiest person in the film: a young blond haired, blue eyed college girl who berated herself for observing that “black people are so loud” (it’s true, I used to teach them) and explained to the camera that while black people are better than white people at some things, white people only succeed when they cheat.

These are the definitions of racism provided by those who also professed to see it every single day. With these bizarre vagaries as their foundation, it’s no surprise that the anti-racist faithful are quickly befuddled when Bodeker presents them with facts.

Befuddled, but not deterred.

The point Bodeker makes is not a new one to VDARE.COM readers, but it is a good one, made invaluable by the clear, accessible presentation. Addressing the camera, Bodeker frankly describes his methodology—from advertising for interviewees on Craigslist to stopping random people on a busy street corner in downtown Denver. He cuts back and forth between his own commentary and the interviews, with a seamless flow from one clip to another. He is never sarcastic or vicious, and the interviewees always seem completely at ease. Bodeker himself looks the part of a new breed of male celebrities like John Corbett (of Sex in the City hunk-dom) or the country singer Keith Urban: casual, friendly and presentable.

In that sense, this DVD is an excellent jumping-off point for an audience that may not be ready for much of the franker debate about race that VDARE.COM readers are used to. It seems perfectly adaptable to a middle or high-school classroom and could provide an excellent spark for debates in college environments. I can even see sending the film to a few of my own relatives who might need a polite kick-in-the-pants towards reality.

With this in mind, I hosted a little showing with the first two teenagers I could find. At first indignant at the prospect of abandoning their summertime allotment of video games for a whole hour (oh, the humanity!), they were consoled with popcorn. And after the first few minutes, they were riveted.

Occasionally, one or the other of them would blurt out in exasperation, or laugh at the ridiculous responses that Bodeker managed to get on film, at which point they would pause the movie to discuss their disgust.

Now, these particular kids have heard criticism of the “racism” concept before and are even familiar with some of the more incorrect ideas regarding the race debate in America, hearing about them regularly at home. But even so, they inevitably have absorbed some of the conventional blame-whites propaganda that they get stuffed into their ears at school and on television and everywhere else in the world.

And the extent to which this movie laid out in explicit terms how exploitative the “racism” racket has become was very educational for them. They brought it up days later, clearly having been turning it over in their minds for some time.

When I asked the two of them if either could imagine the movie being shown in their school, both answered negatively. The younger of the two, a girl, qualified her answer, saying “Well, maybe some teachers, but I don’t know who”.

I’m afraid she’s being naïve. In her private school in the past two years, she has never had a white guest speaker. Instead, she’s had an Indian tribal leader explain how whites killing Indians was historically comparable to Hitler’s holocaust (he visits every year); a black congressman talk about Martin Luther King; a black storyteller share African folklore; and an African dance troupe teach them how to beat African drums.

Bodeker is neither the right color nor does he convey the right message.

Noting Bodeker’s race, the older of my two guinea pigs, a boy, tried to think of ways that the documentary could be more viewer-friendly for race believers. His suggestion was to replace Bodeker with a black man giving the commentary. Or, perhaps Bodeker should disguise his conclusions and only reveal them little by little, waiting for a dramatic end with all of his footage serving as evidence after the fact.

I don’t disagree with the boy’s points: yes, the public has come to bridle when faced with a white man discussing race. Yes, the public is taught to believe black people are allowed to talk about it and whites aren’t. Yes, it is a bit jarring for newbies to hear Bodeker say calmly into the camera that he can’t think of anything more, “artificial, manufactured and manipulated than this whole construct called racism” and that he has “grown suspicious of the term itself and the people who use it frequently.

But that’s kinda the point.

This film is a response to Obama’s call for a “conversation” about race. For Bodeker, it is an achievement. For Obama and other racism-believers, it is an indictment.

Blacks have done enough talking about race. It’s time to let us—and not just brainwashed blondes—into the conversation.
