A small excerpt. Very good stuff.

But now bankruptcy looms, and Congress threatens to cut social spending to pay for the wars. There is no longer enough money is a divided nation to buy everyone off. Whites will not revolt, not violently, but blacks will. I don't think the faculty lounges understand how much anger there is among whites. I'm sorry, Ms. Couric, but it is not just twelve louts in the KKK and a few militias in Idaho that are very pissed at blacks. It is pretty much the blue-collar world, the cops, the firemen, and most (I really think) educated conservatives. Plus a whole lot of journalists who keep their mouths carefully shut.

Branson, this is trash. The fictional inner city "black" the guy imagines probably does exist, but he is not at all representative of the nation's black population.

I did like this part:

Quote:
Now, intellectuals and quasis of the salon classes, few of whom have the slightest familiarity with kids from Detroit, prattle of oppression and opportunity and social this and social that, and blame blacks, or whites, or God, or sunspots—but chiefly, each other. Racial discourse in America usually consists of liberals and conservatives battling each other, neither having much interest in blacks. Both offer solutions of which the kid is perfectly incapable. Liberals believe that with enough federal uplift and and warm-and-fuzziness he will have better self-esteem and begin to study and prosper—which for a variety of reasons he hasn't, isn't, and won't. Conservatives think that if he only worked hard and read the Founding Fathers, he would rise like Rockefeller, which he can't and won't.

Poor people do not lead revolutions. They may engage in acts of civil rebellion as they are in England and have at various times in the USA and they certainly do engage in acts of crime but do so mostly against their fellow poor citizens in the neighborhoods in which they are warehoused. However the establishment does not worry about these people. They are easily pacified with television, liquor and illegal drugs. They are not a threat to the establishment or to society in general. Many of them have never even been "downtown". Revolutions are led by middle class people. Even revolutions of "the poor" are led by educated middle class people (Martin L King, Malcom Shabazz). The establishment makes sure the poor remain pacified with small amounts of cash (welfare), food (snap), TV and liquor. And well paid preachers that do the bidding of the establishment in that community.

Oh, really? Then just who is committing all the violent inner city crime?

Just who is it that shows their extreme racism by holding hostage vast swathes of our cities by their thuggish behavior?

Just who is it who fouls every neighborhood they move into and then have the nerve to blame the conditions on "white flight"?

Ask any one of the hundreds of thousands us who are victims of their murderous ways if this "fictional guy" is not representative of blacks...you sure won't like the answer.

i've read a few of this guy's articles over the years. i can't say i agree with his world view.

as far as i can tell he's a west virginian redneck who grew up in alabama, who lives in Mexico and has only a vague idea of what is going on in the world.

this thread is a shame and you guys know it. Fyi the rioters in the uk are spread nicely over the racial spectrum. The article is full of it and the people cosigning should know better.

Probably not the majority, but a very large minority and that's a scary reality.

Unfortunately, I know from first hand experience. I think bringing in the Black underclass into the American mainstream will be one of the nation's greatest challenges. I also see a widening gap between the Black elites and middle class who are upwardly mobile and this underclass.
