For more than a century, white Americans have been told that “if you do X, race relations problems will be solved.”
If you give land to the Indians
If you free the slaves
If you give blacks the vote
If you include Jews
If you include Irish, Italians, and Eastern Europeans
If you let the Mexicans come to work
If you let the Asians come to work
If you integrate the military
If you outlaw discrimination in employment
If you outlaw discrimination in education
If you outlaw discrimination in sex and marriage
If you forcibly move populations so they mix at work and school
If you promote non-whites in government
If you promote non-whites in elected office
If you elect a black President
Like Charlie Brown in the Peanuts comic strip, white Americans have continually believed that Lucy would hold the football steady for him to kick.
The Rasmussen polling agency recently released yet another statistic showing that despite doing countless acts of hara-kiri, white Americans are still in the throes of painful, deteriorating, anti-white race relations. The June 4-5 poll of 1,000 American adults with a sampling error of three percent revealed that only 16 percent of Americans thought race relations were good or excellent. An additional three percent believed they were excellent. A plurality of 38 percent gave race relations failing marks.
That’s despite most whites being convinced that they shouldn’t be empowered anymore, and accepting the alpha dominance of non-whites even in roles traditionally held by white people. Witness the new Wonder Woman film, for example, in which an Israeli Jew has supplanted the feminist but at least white, Gentile Lynda Carter.
Still, a large percentage of whites have an unspoken, felt need to not die out as a people and culture. That’s where too much winning can have a backlash on the Left. In addition to provoking a large enough swath of white America to get Donald Trump elected, the cultural Marxists that took over our nation’s seminaries, colleges, public education, and media have pushed their victory to the point of provoking non-white resistance, at least from that small group of non-whites that have a semblance of colorblind conservatism. Jason Riley, a black member of the Wall Street Journal editorial board who wrote a book in favor of open borders and who is married to a white woman, published a Thomas Sowell-like editorial against the zaniness that boomeranged back on a thoroughly anti-white Jewish professor at Evergreen State College last month. In his editorial, Riley lamented the fact that 50 years after the Loving v. Virginia ruling which forced interracial sex and marriages on America, colleges are acting more like Malcolm X in his Nation of Islam heyday rather than Martin Luther King Jr.’s professed character-not-color civic ethic. In Riley’s opinion — remember, he’s married to a white woman, who herself was fired for calling for the abolition of Black Studies departments on college campuses — American race relations should be about colorblind sex and colorblind citizenship.
If that’s the best that conservatism can do for white Americans, white Americans should think race relations are heading in the wrong direction. There’s plenty of work to do to teach whites to take a positive view of their whiteness, but the Left’s zeal plus the natural, human instinct for survival means that whites are at least somewhat open to listening to non-Leftist views on race. It’s obvious that something’s wrong with race relations when your children get sexually assaulted by non-white immigrants and the whole event gets sent down the memory hole, court documents get sealed, and the perps get light punishments. Whites may not believe something is wrong or be able to explain what is wrong, but they do feel that something is wrong.
White Americans can’t even escape the anti-white hatred by turning to the once-safe refuge of sports entertainment. The National Basketball Association is pestered to redesign its logo so that a black basketball player, rather than white Hall of Famer Jerry West, would serve as the league’s quintessential symbol. The National Football League is pestered by a transracial mentally ill white man wigger who is upset that outspoken, anti-white, SJW quarterback Colin Kaepernick can’t find a roster spot for the upcoming season. As if his failures on the field have nothing to do with it, or as if his presence isn’t a real marketing liability in most markets not named Seattle or San Francisco. Check out this statistical analysis of his performance last year by a presumably objective Asian sports junkie.
What white people are feeling is what you feel when you lose. Colorblindness in a majority-white nation means only one thing for white people. It means losing political power, shrinking your population due to miscegenation, losing economically through confiscatory taxation and race-hustling blackmail schemes, and losing self-respect through countless undeserved acts of self-mortification.
So yes, white America, race relations are deteriorating. Things are getting worse by the minute. We haven’t even talked about mass immigration, black/brown-on-white crime in every city, the colonization of rural America by non-whites, or a host of other serious problems. But let there be no doubt that something is rotten in Denmark. And America. And in every white, Western nation.
