Racism is a global growth industry, and in America white police kill black men and the courts exonerate them as, despite the rhetoric, blacks do not count. Why should they when they can’t prosper one of the dozens of nations they rule?
Blacks are 13 per cent of the US population and account for 32 per cent of police shootings in 2012 — Trayvon Martin, Walter Scott two notches on a six-gun. The effect on black men in 2015 is as it was in 1715 — then a rope, now a gun.
Racism exists wherever there are black people. Why? In Jos, Nigeria, blacks just killed 42 blacks and we do not blink, yet we’re rabid when police kill one black youth in the USA. Recall 300 virgins taken a year ago? Silence! Is it that we expect savagery of blacks but not whites? You racist!
It was a liberal dream that, with education, laws, and cultural exchange racism would die. But it did not. They love our jazz, ladies, entertainers, athletes, tennis aces, yet racism is as in days of Jim Crow or Enoch Powell’s “river of blood” speech. Mixed marriages, integrated schools, black MPs, black president, did racism die? No way!
So, let’s go back to first principles. Is racism normal? Are species wired to prefer their own? Are blacks fighting a losing battle? So let’s deconstruct racism.
Old theories of racism and solutions don’t work, nor do set asides and quotas; what next? What fuels racism? Some say slavery caused racism. But it is dead, and despite multi-hued slaves only black racism grows. Most ethnic groups are racist to blacks, and we equally so! Racist Africa expelled Asians (UK took them) as Dom Rep does Haitians today. Our racists target Indian, Chinese using derogatory names and belittle their success as “yuh see ‘ow all a dem pack up inna on ‘ouse, an a calaloo and rice dem eat an dem av money; mi haffi eat meat!” Many envy success, live a hedonist party life, and avoid hard graft. Blacks love talk of descending from African kings and love titles, but how does living in the past help today? Quite a racist conundrum. So, what really is racism?
Racism is about power not race. Black power was good, but misguided. One black man’s success is no use as racism is not about personal power. Racism is about nation power. The day one black nation has top military, space and nuclear capability, racism goes into immediate remission. We can then dump goody-goody projects, empowerment seminars and basket weaving. Blacks will have power and get respect!
No black nation colonised a white one or other — not ever! They had no power. Many black nations exist, but none prospers. That slavery is the root of racism or the cause of black poverty is a cleverly crafted subterfuge by lazy-brained blacks; rip-off reparations and back-to-Africa scams. Racism against “Gooks” died with Japan’s prosperity; the Chinese blew it away with cash and WMDs. India (remember we dissed Coolie man?) is gone clear with technology, space and nuclear arms. African is the only major population to be universally disrespected, even here; why? They have no prosperous, potential menacing nation. Others ask: Can they make the grade? Maybe, but with no proof of concept, let’s stick it to blacks!
Racism is rife in black nations. Small Jamaica is up front with big Nigeria as having great potential but mired in ennui, corruption and racism. China, USA, Russia, Europe call the shots and back it with cash or nukes! Racism in America will wane when we stop our minstrel show and build Jamaica. Global racism will fade when rich Nigeria goes nuclear and is seated at the top table. We may change hearts, but the ability to say “or else” is the power the world respects. Black nations fail and this feeds global racism. We are our worst enemies.
Did capitalism cause racism? Marcus Garvey was on track with economic and military plans. The best capitalists were colour blind African, Arab and later European men who founded offshore slavery; and I am open to reparations from all of them. But I would like to put a lick on ‘Cudjoe’ in West Africa for selling my grandfather of the fifth power to white people. I do not forgive Africa.
Racism is not of slavery and rich blacks can’t stanch racism as it’s not personal it’s national. Whites are powerful for eons; other races got there later. Blacks are powerless victims and purveyors of racism. Black power was good but misguided. To riot in white man’s country can’t help us as it is still his land; riot in your own and build it fool! Only a prosperous black country with the fearsome trappings of WMDs can halt racism. When China was communist — known for laundries and food; and it was dissed — it built economic success, WMDs and got respect. Other races ordered their folks, scientists invented, stole or borrowed technology and got to a point where they could destroy the world — welcome to the head table! Every black nation is a satrapy. Ours, with the best brand, shames the new world negro; rich, big Nigeria shames itself and black people everywhere! Blacks can end racism but we will not apply ourselves!
Black nations produce few goods, mainly services — wrong move! They live off nature’s bounty — tourism, beach, jungle, wild animals; to sing, dance, run, preen on a stage is what we do. Blacks do not produce basics — sanitary napkin, car, gun, ship, toilet paper — yet use them with impunity. Blacks do not pull their weight globally, even in farming, and lag on all metrics — innovation, hard work, sacrifice, production, prosperity. They suffer for their performance deficits and use it to blackmail white people for aid. Prosperity and an equal capability for terror by one black nation anywhere will sound the death knell of racism everywhere. Over to you, black chiefs, kings and politicians — do it! Stay conscious, my friend!
