Living as I do near Guadalajara I do not, thank God, see much television from the Great Squirrel Cage north of Mexico. When I do, I get the impression that America is four-fifths black and that all white women have black husbands. Whites apparently do not marry each other. My information is unreliable, but it appears that white men never marry black women. Latinos, as nearly as I can tell, do not exist, But there may be a few somewhere. Asians also fail to appear in this gush of blacks.
When I visit my bank’s website, there is the compulsory black man with the white wife on the opening page. Audible.com tries hard to sell me books about Harriet Tubman and has a page about its commitment to racial piety. Everything is about or for blacks. Judging by this prominence, they must be the brightest, most prosperous, and best educated in America, as well as the most numerous.
Should not whites have some small part in the country? Apparently not. Schools drop AP courses, abandon grammatical English, universities do away with algebra requirements, and adopt all manner of cockamamie courses for and about blacks. I picture white parents hiding in the basement, with a lookout, to teach their children to count beyond ten.
I know, I know. Every American is aware of the foregoing, and I may seem naïve. Still, I am surprised at its all-encompassingnesss. Things that people in a country are accustomed to can be shocking when seen at intervals from without. The whole country from the White House down is pushing the thirteen percent. What is really going on? Are there no whites in America other than wives of black men? No Chinese? No white children? No Latinos, even?
But I have found a clue. I have discovered that a mysterious force called DEI has something to do with it, about which I hear endless boilerplate mumbling by people with the brains of catfish. Apparently, may the lord save us, it means “diversity, equity, and inclusion.” Spare me, spare me, oh spare me, I find myself moaning, bending my gaze heavenward. What should we make of these three horrors?
Diversity of course is a proven terrible idea, causing most of the world’s worst problems, and should be avoided at any cost. Equity means hiring people for jobs because they can’t do them. Inclusion means putting people together who don’t want to be. Why these impositions are thought desirable is a mystery, Like Fermat’s Theorem.
Consider the wonders of diversity as wreaked upon a suffering globe. How do we love one another? Let me count the ways, or a few of them at least. Irish Protestants and Catholics killed each other enthusiastically for years, blowing up whole night clubs full of each other. Then we have Jews and Moslems in Palestine. Sunis and Shiites in many places. Hindus and Moslems in India. Hutsis and Tutus in Burundi. Jews and Germans in Germany. Tamils and Sinhalese in Sri Lanka. Blacks and whites in America. Francophones and Anglophones in Canada. Eskimos and whites in Canada. Chinese and Indonesians in Indonesia. Moslems and French in Paris. Blacks and whites in South Africa. Blacks and Asians in America. “Indigenes” and everybody else almost everywhere. No one can doubt that diversity is a good thing, at least if you own a funeral parlor.
Even fans of different football teams can get into bloody fistfights, like members of teenage gangs. Obviously, we need more diversity.
Fact is, different kinds of people seldom want to be around each other very much or, frequently, at all. The woke who prattle fervently about diversity and inclusion are like adolescent rock singers bleating that all we need is love. Actually, that is indeed all we need. The trouble is that we don’t have it and aren’t going to, at least not between different groups. We just don’t much like each other unless we are like each other. It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.
We can easily see this. Rich and poor fail to congregate, old and young, children and adults and teenagers, educated and not. They all flock together with others of their own. People prefer to spend their time with friends of their level of intelligence. They marry according to these same standards.
Blacks and whites seem actually hypergolic, or at least immiscible. In American universities, blacks demand separate facilities and in dining halls, races and ethnicities sit with themselves.
Diversity often engenders savagery out of proportion to any reason for it. Today in America we have an unremitting bloody, one- sided war of blacks against whites, with the media trying to hide it and whites not fighting back. One day they may, and then it will be hell, most amazing hell.
Black murders of whites occur at a rate of at least two or three dozen a month, suppressed by the media. For example, this story appeared as “two teens and a twelve-year-old kill two girls.” Accurate enough, but lacking details. Three blacks killed two white girls. Do we really need inclusiveness?
Given the easily documented prevalence of unidirectional violence between black and white, might it not be a good idea to let people decide who to hang out with? Perhaps give the races a degree of autonomy and separation?
No. It would be sensible and practical, neither of which is esteemed in American politics.
If the darkening of the country were a political maneuver to get votes, it would be reprehensible but make sense. If the purpose were to improve education of blacks, provide equality of opportunity, or to seek out qualified black candidates for jobs, that sort of thing, it could be justified. It does none of these things, nothing of substance, being purest flimflam and nothing else. But it goes beyond this, becoming actually dangerous.
Medical schools lower entrance requirements and airlines recruit flight students not by ability but by color. The enstupidation of the schools will have grim effects on American competitiveness. This is obvious, but that is the point: Many behind the endumbment have to know what the effects will be.
Why is this done? What goes? The campaign seems too broad to be an actual plotted-out conspiracy. The usual suspects are as usual indicted: liberals, Democrats, and The Jews. I have known a lot of Jews, and none have shown signs of wanting to Destroy White Christian Civilization(often said to be the purpose) though maybe some other Jews, probably in a secret control room under Manhattan. The woke support much of what is done, but are boardrooms woke? How is it that publishing houses, corporations, the military, thousands of school boards, the National Science Foundation, virtually all the media, university students (who are intolerant of deviation from wokeness) flight schools of airlines, all get this bug at once? Many of these can’t possibly believe it.
I wonder, and I may be crazy, whether people at the top have decided that the racial situation has no solution unless they can force the races into comity and assimilation by brute political force, and have realized that the tidal wave of black crime has to be disguised to keep whites from exploding for a decade or two until the social engineering takes effect. The woke of my acquaintance really believe that blacks and whites, pushed together, will assimilate as the Irish, Italian, and East Europeans did.
But what do you, the reader, think to be the solution to racial problems? Is there a solution and, if not, where will this lead?
Anyway, ignore the Asians, who will take care of themselves. Don’t make Latinos into affirmative-action parasites but otherwise ignore them too. They will assimilate. But blacks? What? Vituperation and talking about root causes doesn’t count unless you have a solution. I am looking for practical steps.
Me? I haven’t a clue. Yet it is the most important domestic question facing the United States.
