For some years, I fought back against being called a racist. For some time after that, I simply ignored it. Today I embrace the characterization. I maintain that there’s enough evidence to do so.
Evidence such as this report from the Kyle Rittenhouse trial:
George Floyd’s nephew, Cortez Rice, has issued veiled threats to the jurors in the Kyle Rittenhouse case, with the support of Unicorn Riot, an antifa affiliated organization. “I ain’t even gonna name the people that I know that’s up in the Kenosha trial,” Rice said. “But it’s cameras in there. It’s definitely cameras up in there. There’s definitely people taking pictures of the juries and everything like that. We know what’s going on.” “so we need the same results, man.” said Rice in a video released today. Rice has a history of intimidating jurors and judges in prominent cases, coordinating with antifa and BLM activists. In the Daunte Wright case, Rice located the apartment of the female judge presiding over the case and stood outside the door of her home.
No one needs my sort of memory to recall what happened to Derek Chauvin after the death of multiple felon George Floyd. Very few would need to consult Wikipedia over what was done to George Zimmerman after the death of murderous teenage thug Trayvon Martin. Few would need to be reminded about the hounding of Officer Darren Wilson after his wholly justified shooting of strong-arm thug Michael Brown. Few would be unaware of what happened to Officer Kim Potter over the death of wanted felon Daunte Wright. And who could forget the case of Mohammed Noor and Justine Damond?
Looking back not too many years, we have the case that catapulted the odious Al Sharpton to national notoriety: the wholly fabricated claims of Tawana Brawley to having been gang-raped by a group of white men. Few need Lexis/Nexis to recall the trials of the cops in the Rodney King case, or the riots that followed the original acquittals. What about the refusal of a majority black jury to convict O. J. Simpson, despite irrefutable evidence that he had murdered his white ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman? Am I alone in recalling Crystal Gail Mangum and the Duke Lacrosse players? What about the rape-torture-murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom?
Blacks kill blacks in staggering numbers. By comparison, the number of blacks killed by whites – whether the killer is a policeman or a civilian – is tiny. Yet we’ve had three years of “Black Lives Matter” riots, some of which have featured “protestors” chanting “What do we want? Dead cops!”
Many would protest that the great majority of American Negroes are peaceable and law-abiding. I would concede that without argument. The sole problem with the point is that it’s wholly irrelevant. Consider the comparable case of Islamic terrorism. A few years back, the great Brigitte Gabriel faced a Muslim questioner who raised the “most Muslims are peaceful” point:
Note also something that Miss Gabriel did not say, but which is highly relevant: When some Muslim or Muslims commit an atrocity, the immediate response of the rest of the Islamic world is to scream “You must not blame Islam!”…even if the perpetrators explicitly invoked the teachings of Islam as their license and motivation. American Negroes have the same mass-protective response when one of them is caught in a heinous act…especially if he’s arrested or shot for it. They reflexively circle the wagons around “one of our own.”
Yes, the media are complicit. Yes, the Left exploits racial conflicts for its own purposes. And yes, no member our pusillanimous political class would dream of stating – where anyone could hear him, at least – that America’s problems with violent crime, crimes against property, and general racial animosity are the doing of black criminals and black racial agitators. Why, that would be discriminatory!
Soon it won’t matter. The backlash is building. White Americans are beginning to pay attention to analyses such as Charles Murray’s and commentators such as Jared Taylor. We’re finding ways to insulate ourselves from “black culture.” We too can circle the wagons – and our responsibility for our lives, families, and communities has made it imperative that we do so.
Take heed. Whatever your race, take heed. Once the backlash casts off its restraints, it won’t care about your identity, your achievements, or your intentions…only which side you’re on.
