This appears to be the question of our time – the supreme question of our time.
What does it mean to be oppressed? According to the dictionary, to oppress means “to burden with cruel or unjust impositions or restraints; subject to a burdensome or harsh exercise of authority or power.” If we use that definition as our filter, which of the following American demographics appears to be oppressed?
To the best of my knowledge, no “cruel or unjust impositions or restraints” afflict any of those five groups. None of them are “subject to a burdensome or harsh exercise of authority or power.” One of them gets special considerations from the law, as the past eighteen months of nonstop violence and looting in two dozen American cities demonstrates. If we add the de facto imposition of racial quotas in education and hiring, and government set-asides in the awarding of contracts, the position of the American Negro looks rather privileged.
Then there’s crime. Time was, the Department of Justice kept track of racial aspects of violent crimes and crimes against property: broadly speaking, who did what to whom, by race. However, the DoJ discontinued that practice in 2014. Today the curious American must recur to local sources that maintain such statistics. Charles Murray did, and the numbers tell a foreboding tale.
But the tale is anything but new. Jared Taylor has been keeping track for a long time. The patterns are quite clear. However, if you dare to cite those figures in public, you’ll get called – pardon the irony – everything but white.
Facts, you see, no longer matter:
Pennsylvania State University is defending a professor who pulled a white student in front of his class and told him that he’s breathing, so he may have oppressed someone today.
Professor Sam Richards, who teaches the 700-student “SOC119: Race and Ethnic Relations” course, pulled students up before the class on June 30 to discuss white privilege.
“I just take the average white guy in class, whoever it is, it doesn’t really matter,” Richards said. “Dude, this guy here. Stand up, bro. What’s your name, bro?”
The student, Russell, stood up to face the class.
“Look at Russell, right here, it doesn’t matter what he does,” the professor continued, according to a report from Campus Reform. “If I match him up with a black guy in class, or a brown guy… who’s just like him, has the same GPA, looks like him, walks like him, talks like him, acts in a similar way…and we send them into the same jobs…Russell has a benefit of having white skin.”
In another class on March 4, Richards attacked two white students as “oppressors” while discussing the Critical Race Theory training taking place at Coca-Cola. The company made headlines after it was revealed that they had instructed their employees to “be less white.”
Richards, according to Campus Reform, asked the class for thoughts on a Coca-Cola slide which read, “To be less white is to be less oppressive, be less arrogant, be less certain, be less defensive, be less ignorant, be more humble, listen, believe, break with party, break with white solidarity.”
So according to this “professor,” this “scholar” of racial and ethnic relations, we whites are the oppressors. How? Simply by daring to breathe.
Facts no longer matter. Perhaps they never did.
Had enough yet?
Divide et impera, the Romans liked to say. “Divide them and rule them.” Create mutually hostile groups in a subject population and set them at one another’s throats. They’ll be too busy fighting one another to resist Roman rule. It worked, for a time.
Today’s version is identity-group politics. We’ve got plenty of them but only the Negroes are rampaging through the streets. Only the Negroes are claiming that we white folks have our boot on their necks. Only the Negroes are incited to violent fury when a policeman shoots and kills a black criminal. And only we whites are told that we mustn’t retaliate for all the destruction, disruption, and dislocation – that “we have to be bigger than that.”
Do you suppose this fireman felt he had to be “bigger than that?”
An off-duty New York City firefighter was brutally attacked by a mob of teenagers while he was walking his dog in a Queens park on Friday.
The firefighter encountered a mob of approximately 100 teens, when one of them declared “it’s fight night” and jumped him.
According to a report from the New York Post, “the 44-year-old victim said he was strolling with his 3-year-old Labradoodle Dylan in Juniper Valley Park in Middle Village at around 9:55 p.m. Friday when he was suddenly targeted by the mob.”
“There were at least 100 kids … I was walking my dog. They just picked me out and approached me,” the still-shaken victim, who asked to remain anonymous, told The Post Saturday afternoon. “One kid took his shirt off and said, ‘it’s Fight Night!’ He said he was 19 and said, ‘I could fight you.’ Everyone took their cell phones out. There were cell phones everywhere.”
“They all came at me…A kid came up behind me and hit me in the back of the head with a bottle and I let go of the dog,” he said.
The father of three explained that luckily there was an ambulance nearby that pulled up and stopped the attack.
Yes, the “teenagers” were black. Were you in any doubt?
Were we to subtract the Negro demographic from these United States, the nation’s violent-crime and crimes-against-property statistics would virtually disappear. So would 90% of the political issues that are used to bludgeon whites about their “privilege.” That could be done peacefully, after an agreement that the black race is incompatible with the others and must be separated geographically from them. But our spineless, parasitic political class must first be replaced by patriots with clear vision and common sense. Failing that, this scenario is much more plausible.
We cannot continue to be victimized both criminally or politically, yet continue to be a unitary nation. The current situation is unsustainable. Therefore it will not be sustained. The sole questions remaining are about methods and details.
Respectable, law-abiding Negroes could solve the problem by bringing their unruly racial brethren to heel. Will they see the writing on the wall and do so? Or will they continue to “circle the wagons” around black criminals, and to claim that it’s privileged white oppressors who are really to blame?
Can facts be made to matter once again?
