An Individualist’s Position On Rubbing-In Racial Differences In Intelligence

Individualism Vs. Collectivism, Intelligence, Morality, Paleolibertarianism, Political Correctness, Race, Racism, Reason

It’s about etiquette and kindness, really. (Or being a softie.)

I had tweeted out the American Renaissance interview with a young black man, the point being to note how he was “ostracized as an Uncle Tom for being a bookish, high-achiever, high IQ individual, who spoke standard English.”

On the Facebook thread, our reader made this point:

Paul Bustion:I find articles like this distasteful. I find it distasteful to emphasize the racial differences in intelligence. Its probably true that Europeans, Northeast Asians and Ashkenazi Jews on average are more intelligent than Africans, but I think its distasteful to make a point of emphasizing the fact.”

My reply:

Ilana Mercer, Author:Perfectly put. My sentiment exactly. The lady in me recoils from such cruelty. I could never. I’m an individualist. While I recognize reality about everything—cleave to it in writing, closely deduce from it—I find no redeeming personal virtue in [rubbing-in the point on inter-racial, aggregate differences in IQ scores]. I do, and will, fight tooth-and-nail when I am called a racist because of the intellectual and moral shortfalls of others.”

“Kudos [to our reader] for making this point! “

This quagmire is touched on in my “Into the Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons for America from Post-Apartheid South Africa.”

UPDATED: FACEBOOK THREAD:

Ilana Mercer, Author Agreed, John Cronk. It’s just something I find tacky. What am I confronting a nice black man about? I’ll confront him if he dare to accuse me of racism b/c not as smart as I, or blame me for his lower inhibitions. I will not tell a perfectly good individual he is inferior. For one, maybe he isn’t? You interact with individuals based on their individual characteristics, not on an aggregate character of a group, valid though it is.

Ilana Mercer, Author: Kerry, I don’t ignore the rule for the exception. You treat each individual as an individual. I write copiously about race and aggregate racial differences. People here are obviously not keeping up with this work. Other than the racialists (Steve Sailer, Peter Brimelow, Jared Taylor), I don’t know who has incorporated the topic more into analysis than this writer. (Colin Flaherty wisely sticks to chronicling and providing us with an enormous reservoir of data. But he’s a sweet man. I think he might agree with me about personal interactions. Ditto Jack Kerwick.) The point I am making is one of manners and courtesy to a fellow human being. ‘Tis all. We need to be virtuous, too. And anyone who suggests I am not a fierce writer, aggressive too, on the topic, hasn’t been reading. Search under Racial Issues: http://www.ilanamercer.com/…/public_article_list_list.php

Fake News Doesn’t Want You To Know, But MLK Spared A Thought For Poor Whites

Democrats, Donald Trump, Race, Racism

I think my father would be very concerned about the fact that we have 50 [million or] 60 million people living in poverty, and somehow [we’ve] got to create the climate for all boats to be lifted.

So said Martin Luther King III, son of civil rights leader the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., after meeting with President-elect Donald Trump.

I watched King say this, but I could not find the quote in the Fake News media. (I eventually found it in the Washington Times.)  It’s obvious why. What Martin Luther King III says suggests that, for all his faults, senior was, nevertheless, nothing like the black community’s current, corrupt race hustlers. For he gave some thought to the non-black poor.

The Fake News media don’t want to promote inclusive world views; they believe in the practice of identity politics by minorities, and in submission to identity politics for whites.

But it is true that MLK did spare a thought for poor whites.

“It is a simple matter of justice,” said the senior Rev. King,” that America, “in dealing creatively with the task of raising the Negro [MLK’s words] from backwardness [MLK’s words], should also be rescuing a large stratum of the forgotten white poor.”

Here is Bernie Goldberg, on Bill O’Reilly’s The Factor, exculpating the disgusting conduct of Rep. John Lewis now and over the years. No! Goldberg bends over backward to make excuses for this  individual.  Goldberg doesn’t hold Lewis accountable, although Bill tries, but not hard enough.

Helping The Sharpton And Obama Afrocentrism ‘Fade to Black’ (Part I)

“Helping The Sharpton And Obama Afrocentrism ‘Fade to Black’” (Part I) is the current column, now on Townhall.com, or The Daily Caller, if your browser gets spooked by Townhall.com (because of the Russians, of course). An excerpt:

TWO PIMPS IN A POD

Boy, have whites done hard time under Barack Hussein Obama! To deliver his inauguration benediction, eight accursed years back, Obama commissioned one Rev. Joseph Lowery.

Lowery is to poetry what Beyoncé is to music. Both were greatly elevated by the outgoing, déclassé first couple. Lowery’s anti-white inaugural jingle beseeched the Lord to finally make “white embrace what is right,” allow “brown to stick around,” “yellow to be mellow,” and “the red man to get ahead.”

High art.

Indeed, on day one, Obama and his bitter and twisted better half hammered home that to be white in their America was never to be right. To be black was to have an eternal claim against whites, for no other reason than that they’re white.

Although America is the land of quotas, set-asides and affirmative action—a country that privileges minorities—the majority is, nevertheless, subjected to non-stop, relentless propaganda. Enforced by the tyranny of political correctness, this agitprop has led white Americans, most of whom harbor no racial animus, to believe racism saturates their society. So, whites say nothing when they’re roped into a Sisyphean struggle to appease the unappeasable.

Unappeasable is the job description of Rev. Al Sharpton, with whom Obama had made common cause. (Later, Black Lives Matter stole Sharpton’s thunder.)

With the election of Donald Trump, white America has essentially told these race pimps to talk to the hand (‘cause the face ain’t listening). They’ve had enough of the pigment burden. Besides, as a pragmatist and a doer, Trump is constitutionally indifferent to the racial-grievance industry.

So march Sharpton must.

Ahead of President-elect Trump’s inauguration, Sharpton’s “We Shall Not be Moved March” will take place on January 14. The reverend and his foot soldiers at CNN will meander to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. There, they will say stuff as memorable and meaningful as the ectoplasm that tumbled from Obama’s mouth, during his farewell address.

Let us hope that President-elect Trump “shall not be moved,” and that Al’s presence in the People’s House will be greatly reduced under a Trump administration. For as of June 2016, the White House Visitor Records logged 57 Obama-Sharpton love-ins.

Before he fades to black, in the memorable words of a Metallica ballad, an aspect of Sharpton’s lying persona should be exposed. It has been omitted from the tit-for-tat that goes for debate between Republicans and Democrats. …

UPDATED (1/9): Black Lives Torture And Murder A LOT

Crime, Race, Racism

In 2011, “Into The Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons for America From Post-Apartheid South Africa” documented in gory detail and analyzed the ubiquity and cruelty of black-on-white violence, in my country of birth (SA) and in my adopted country (USA). And Colin Flaherty does this day-in, day-out pictorially. Writes Jack Kerwick:

For many people, however, statistics may have an air of unreality. This accounts for why veteran investigative journalist, the fearless and indefatigable Colin Flaherty, eschews them altogether in favor of the moving image.
This author of such hits as White Girl Bleed A lot and Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry created a Youtube channel in which, multiple times a day every day, he shares with his viewers videos of the phenomenon of black-on-nonblack criminality and violence from around the country.
Colin’s visual approach kills two birds with one stone as it simultaneously supplies two invaluable services: It reveals the ubiquity and all too common savagery of black-on-nonblack crime and violence, on the one hand, while, on the other, putting the lie to the notion of “white racism.” Colin frequently puts his detractors’ out to pasture thus: If, he calmly asks, there is all of this white-on-black racism, as they tirelessly insist, then where’s the video?

I have a good idea why the media have suddenly become hip to the hate my good friend Collin documents daily–black on white, black on Asian, black on elderly whites, on and on. Suffice it to say, right now, that social media was first to uncover the kidnapping and torture of a disabled young man by four Chicago black criminals. The malfunctioning media followed, only once the footage uploaded to Facebook by the culprits could no longer be ignored.

And even then, you could hear the standard lines disgorged by CNN and MSNBC commentators, including from a congressman, James E. Clyburn. These were that a good deal of investigation still needed to be completed before conclusions could be reached. After all, this manifestly violent, cruel and protracted torture might have been just a prank, mischievous wrongdoing, or a bad decision.

Wow. I never thought of that. It takes a sick fuck to …
