When White Is Called Black, Anything Goes… And Rationality Is the First Thing to Go.

Races, racism, and the way to describe them: “black”, “negro”, “colored”, “red skin”, “whites”, are all US racist constructs. So is the “one drop rule” behind it all. To use them is to become oneself racist, just as using Nazi semantics about Aryans, non-Aryans, Jews, half-breeds to talk “races” without decrying them stridently, is to become oneself somewhat of a Nazi. This is the first paradox of all too much vociferously noisy antiracism, as it presently stand: it is itself racist. 

Excess brings its own destruction: Nazism, for example, by going insane into its “defense” of the white German “race” helped bring its own replacement by what it had proclaimed to detest (ten million white Germans died in WW2, and often the most “Aryan” of them all, thanks to Hitler and company… and those ten million have been more than replaced by millions of… colored immigrants; so the white race obsession of the Nazis brought a considerable darkening of average German skin color, the exact opposite of what they wanted!)

Using skin color to classify people, whether they have it, or not, is beyond the pale. It’s an outrageous social construct based on a discrimination which literally paints “black”, in the racists’ mind eyes, people whose characteristic is to have a drop of recent Sub Saharan African genetics. That “one drop rule” is straight racism of the most outrageous type, because that one drop is supposed to make people into a different “race”… thus affirming the purity of the “white race”… which becomes, by definition the one untouched by that (apparently infinitely) black drop of recent African genetics.  

Col. Hans Christian Heg, who immigrated to the United States from Norway, became a newspaper editor and an outspoken member of the anti-slavery Free Soil Party. When the Civil War broke out, he was chosen to lead a regiment from Wisconsin.
The statue of Heg, an anti-slavery activist who fought and died for the Union during the U.S. Civil War, was decapitated and thrown into a Madison lake. Mob rule has no rule but blind rage.

Right now it’s trendy among “whites” to embrace “Black”. Talk is cheap, embrace not too intimate with all the COVID around. Wishful talk will not change the reality of tax and power structures which determine who rules. 

Racism is, fundamentally, a denial of reality, and, first of all, the reality of the one and only human race. Calling “Black” individuals whose skin is not even black is a blatant way to deny the importance of reality, in this case, paradoxically, the reality of color as wavelength, and brandishing the importance of racial prejudice, and making it sacrosanct. The more the obsession with “Black”, the less the grasp on reality.

The less the grasp on reality, the more one is ready to confuse “millions” and “thousands” (as Joe Biden is prone to do). We have seen that movie before: in the Fourth Century, Roman emperors imposed “Orthodox Catholicism”… and reality became a distant memory, submerged by barbarian invasions, and the love of getting slapped on the other cheek.

        Racism comes from the Church on the belief that children of Abraham became different tribes and later different nations on different continents, an absurd proposition that the Christian Earth was only 6000 years old, just a few generations to allow for such changes.

        The British also referred the Indians as black even though a simple observation showed the skin color varies widely all over including within families. This is just from belief unsullied by opening eyes and looking at facts and being told that belief is superior to experience!

          Indeed, Partha, indeed.
          The idea that Catholicism generated racism is intriguing, in the sense I didn’t think about it at all… What I have long observed is the extreme intolerance of the Christians, who spent lots of time killing each other as a result… Then, on top of that, they became so idiotic, they had earth younger than oral history (in the USA, Natives remembered the eruption of Crater lake… which is older)
          The stupidity of Christianism is what made it strong.

    Isn’t the reality even worse? Racism is masquerading as anti-racism. It’s being embraced by the plutocratic elite and enforced by their corporatocracy; it’s being indoctrinated at all levels of public education; and it’s becoming mantra to the illiberal regressive left.

    The protests, riots, moral panic and frenzy of virtue signaling have been promoted by the media because they were thought to damage Trump. The Maoist struggle sessions, iconoclasm and history denial are energizing Democratic voters who had been unenthused about Biden. Trump has been a strong president for black Americans and likely would have strongly outperformed past Republicans about black voters in 2020. This issue drives a wedge between Trump and many black voters. Politically, it’s a genius move for corporate Democrats. Practically, it’s tearing an already-fraying country apart.

    Humans are naturally tribal. Transcending that tribalism is a uniquely Western project. Slavery has been universal since humans transitioned from hunter-gatherer societies. Ending it as a moral imperative was a Western achievement.

    This isn’t about ending the evil of racism. This is about attacking and undermining Western civilization, its history, its achievements, its values – and its future.

      Agreed. I know tons of racists who go around with BLM signs right now, and it exasperates me. The other day my triply racial family came across a Nordic appearance family in a white suburb holding a large sign “END WHITE SILENCE”. We were looking at a house for sale, so we the diversely colored were potentially the new neighbors. You could feel the awkward silence right away: were we going to go BLM on them in the whities? They didn’t know what to do with their sign. They had dragged the kids. Awkward waving was exchanged…

      It’s like when Kamala Harris (I wish Biden selects her) insists to tell me I have been living in an abominable part of town (she lived in a plush area from her upper class top university professors parents… Mom at Mcgill, Montreal, dad at Stanford, Silicon Valley… And she was bused from plush to plush, covering within the plush in 45 minutes what I can cover in 15 minutes running… Then she has the gull to eviscerate biden about that…)

      Pelosi exasperates me. She lives in a twenty+ million dollar mansion in Pacific heights (officially worth 8 million in 2007), she has estates and a vineyard in Napa, and is part owner of several major ski resorts, including Squaw Valley (probably secretly celebrating the demise of thousands of squaws she stole the land of so she could make even more money). Feinstein exasperate me. Her husband made more than a BILLION dollars trading which China, overseen by his wife’s senate…
