    Exclamation A Farewell to ‘Black America’

    A Farewell to ‘Black America’

    By Eugene Robinson

    WASHINGTON—What do Fox News polemicist Bill O’Reilly, nappy-headed radio jock Don Imus, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, the leading Republican presidential candidates, the National Urban League, the NAACP and much of the national media have in common?

    They don’t see, or don’t want to admit, that “black America” is an increasingly meaningless concept—nearly as imprecise as just plain “America.”

    Why is O’Reilly under siege? Because he was shocked to learn that there exists in this country an upscale black-owned restaurant with an affluent African-American clientele. Four or five decades ago, you could reasonably generalize that “black America” was poor. Today, African-Americans control nearly $800 billion in annual purchasing power—enough to dine occasionally at restaurants that have tablecloths.

    Why did Imus get fired by CBS and NBC? Because now there are senior black professionals in both of those companies with the clout to march into top executives’ offices and argue that Imus had to go. Also because Al Roker, an African-American who happens to be one of the stars of “Today”—often described as the most profitable show in all of television—called publicly for Imus’ head, or at least his cowboy hat.

    Why does Thomas, in his pugnacious autobiography, insist that he’s being persecuted for holding views that are somehow off-limits to black Americans? Apparently, it would destroy his sense of his own exceptionalism to acknowledge the many African-Americans who share his conservative social views and his ethic of personal responsibility and self-help. (He’s right, though, that on the subject of affirmative action, most black Americans do think he’s nuts.)

    Why do the leading Republican candidates simply write off the African-American vote, even though there’s clearly a growing number of black voters who demographically fit the Republican profile? Hasn’t the GOP noticed that here in the Washington area—we’re in the vanguard, but other cities are following our lead—more African-Americans live in the suburbs than in the city proper?

    The Democratic candidates haven’t really broadened their messages to take into account African-American economic and cultural diversity, either. But at least they noticed that there now exists a cohort of black Americans with unprecedented wealth and power—luminaries who are well worth pursuing for money and endorsements, just like their white counterparts. Hillary Clinton has snagged Magic Johnson, Bob Johnson, Quincy Jones and others. Barack Obama has nabbed Oprah Winfrey, who transcends even the rest of the transcendent.

    Why does the National Urban League, an organization for which I have great respect, compile its annual “State of Black America” report in a way that makes the condition of African-Americans seem both better and worse than it really is? The 2007 report’s painstakingly calculated “equality index” says, for example, that African-Americans score 0.57 on the economic scale (full parity with whites would be a score of 1.0). But census data suggests that there’s a sizable cluster of educated, middle-class black households that would score much closer to parity with whites, and another large cluster of disadvantaged black households that would lag much farther behind.

    Trying to encompass all of black America in a few easily grasped numbers is far from a meaningless exercise. But it doesn’t point the way toward specific policies for different segments of a diverse population.

    Why has the NAACP, once such a potent force, lost so much of its membership and relevance? I would argue that it’s because the organization continues to look for a “black agenda” around which we can all unite with the fervor and passion of decades past, when in fact there’s a need for multiple agendas.

    Why do editors, reporters, columnists and television producers keep only two phone numbers on speed-dial for use whenever any news breaks concerning a black person? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying they shouldn’t call the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton for comment—I like and respect both, and value what they have to say. But it’s a bit much when those same reporters, editors, columnists and producers then proceed to do stories asking who appointed Jackson and Sharpton as spokesmen for all African-Americans.

    The problem is that we all say we want an “honest dialogue” about race, but we’ve been having the same old arguments for years—affirmative action, inner-city dysfunction, overt and covert racism—and we seem to be stuck. We need a new language, a new vocabulary and syntax.

    Let’s start by opening our eyes and recognizing that if there ever was a monolithic “black America”—absolutely and uniformly deprived and aggrieved, with invariant values and attitudes—there certainly isn’t one now.

    What success Black America has obtained was given to it by White liberals. Many, maybe a majority, of professional middleclass Blacks are employed in the public sector. Washington D.C. probably has the largest concentration of middleclass Blacks anywhere in the world because of race preferences in hiring. There are also set asides in awarding federal contracts for minority & women own businesses. The federal & state governments, along with many public schools systems, municipalities & county governments are essentially public work projects for the benefit of women & minorities. And pressure from the Justice Department, other government agencies like the FCC (which awards broadcasting licenses),along with liberals in the corporate boardrooms have ensured that big business also patronizes minorities in hiring & in awarding business contracts. I mentioned in another thread that the sons of race hustler Jesse Jackson were awarded a distributership from Anheuser-Busch, the largest Brewer in the US.

    Successful Negroes in the US know their success is due to their Blackness. If affirmative action & pro-intregationist laws were abolished, all the advances that Negroes have gained over the last 50-years would disappear overnight. Without legal pressure from the various branches of government, liberals could be swept out of the boardrooms & corporate America could abolish their own private affirmative action programs. Negroes will never stop being Black, because that is their trump card in the current political enviroment were equality means equal results. What success Black America has achieved has been because of goverment mandates. They are incapable of achieving success as a group on their own.

    In the entire world there is not one successful Black govern nation. Look at Africa. Blacks turned prosperous Rhodesia into the economic wreck now known as Zimbabwe. South Africa is heading in the same direction. In the Western Hemisphere, the worst nation is Black-ruled Haiti. Even the rare exceptions - Barbados, the Bahamas - are small nations that function as tax havens, and are ran behind the scenes by Whites, with the local Black politicians being no more then the 21st century version of house n*gg*rs. In the US we have the ruins of Detroit as a reminder when Blacks take charge. New York & Chicago both had Negro mayorsd, but the liberal leaders of those cities learned their lesson quickly & put the cities back under White (Jewish/Irish & liberal) control. The article Blaxis posted is just another piece of neocon multicultural bullsh*t, that tries to persuade Whites that Negroes are capable of obtaining the same economic success as Whites & become just plain Americans like the White folks, when anyone living in the US - with the exception of the dirtball neocons - knows the truth. Hell, even liberals know that Blacks are incapable of taking care of themselves, though they'd never say so outloud.

    Eugene Robinson is on TV all the time to do commentary on mostly black issues. He is a bright enough guy but he is on TV and has literary success because he is black.

    Black issues no longer dominate American politics or daily thoughts because white America is simply tired of all their excuses. We threw millions, no billions at them for food, housing, education, law enforcement, and so on and we have seen no improvement. Differences between blacks and whites are not just skin deep. They are fundamental and on many levels. No matter how much money you throw at a Negro, he will not turn white, he will not act white or think white.

    But the biggest reason that blacks no longer dicated the political agenda is that the Mexicans are displacing them everywhere. They take "minority" reserved jobs. They swamp black schools. They (Mexicans) have sucked the traditional black welfare programs dry. But must importantly, they have moved into black gettos and actually displaced blacks. Blacks are goin' South in record numbers back to their ancestral homes. Why is this important? Because we have an representative republic and blacks are left with increasingly less and less all black or mostly black political districts.

    Los Angeles had a black mayor until he got old. Things were so bad that a white mayor was elected to clean things up. He did all he could and then the blacks expected to take over again. Wrong. A Mexican was elected. Los Angeles is now not a white or black city, it is a Mexican city.

    Mexican gangs shoot blacks in the streets and nobody cares. The police have learned and hardly even investigate it as a crime. Now, blacks whine for police protection, not about police brutality. Blacks are now fragmented and weak and nobody really gives a rat's a-- about them.

    I remember once reading on Amren about the Affirmative action circus in the states. The black wealth is pure joke. The big corporations have to take black employees, without an exception the brothers are so incapable that the companies must assign them in to some token task, they'r just forced to keep on the pay check. Eventually it's the white and Asians who have to do the tasks. The article in Amren had excellent examples, like Americ wrote the black wealth is largely due to Govermental task. According to the example the American Tax bureau has become pure mess thanks to high number of black ladies working there. After the negroes took the charge nothing has been functioning. There was example of negroes who did not do anything during the entire work day, not even picking up the phone. Some of them did drugs but the white managers could not even fire them in fear of legal hassles and the racisism-"card" that Black always use. Eventually tax laywers had to deal with some sub-branches in Utah, 'cos those remote areas could not fulfill the jobs with minorities and continued to have well functioning white task.

    I am so happy that the Mexicans are finally showing to the blacks where they really stands. It's lottery ticket to be black in US (apart from low IQ ofcourse) other than that scholarships, preferental treatment and secured, well-paid govermental jobs are just waiting. And all this thanks to white leftists.

    The only sad (for them) truth.

    Exaclty what they deserve........that's a fascinating paradox........are black favourable to democratic/liberal politic ? Well, then it's right Mexican use the same privileges.

    (and since almost anyone on the earth is more succesfull than blacks, this competition against Hispanics, will shows again the racial gap..........

    Most blacks are not engaged in the creation (or rather, expansion) of wealth - they are involved in looting public money, which is a zero-sum game. If they knew what is best for them, they'd stop the rent-seeking and try and find ways to tighten immigration laws. Unfortunately, they are easily persuaded by idiotic (or cynical) liberal demagogues. It seems they do not want to succeed, and follow that rare minority of blacks who do, and would rather play the role of victims and take the easy route out, for all posterity. Ironically, government programmes are what do perhaps the most harm to poor blacks (as Thomas Sowell has shown.) What does Sowell get for revealing these truths? Exile and pariah status. Maybe they were better off as slaves...

    I agree with what Americ says. Our government has given tons of money to these people to support their 'needs', but they never seem to think it's enough and they always want more and more. Look at Africa, for example, we give tons of money in charity to that cesspool of a country and not one bit has it advanced nor cleared up its problems. Though, we continue to still pump money into it. If blacks really wish to be 'equal' to us in this country then they first of all need to abolish affirmative action and all their special interest groups (NAACP, UNCF, etc.)

    I agree with what you're saying, but must point out that Africa is not a country.

    Technology and western "progress" is not the answer to post colonial Africa. Nor is it the answer to Europes' spiritual problem. The best any western (and eastern) country can do is pay off Africa's corrupt leaders, buy up land and set up shop. The handouts are wasted of course and they simply add to an already complicated problem .Btw its arguable that the IMF are relatively comfortable with this situation since its Rothschilds banks that distribute the wealth there.
