No black people

ONE OF THE many changes I encountered on moving to Central Mexico was this:  There are no black people.

Nary a one.

After living in the American South for 98 percent of my life, this was very noticeable. I grew up with blacks, literally. For the first six years of my life, I lived on my grandparents’ farm in southwest Georgia. All of my playmates were black, 100%.

When my family moved to Florida when I was 7, however, schools had not been integrated, so I went completely through public schooling with no black kids in sight. They were on the other side of town in their own schools.

“Separate but equal.” Yeah, sure.

But on joining the Air Force in 1962, I immediately entered an integrated world. My barracks roommate was black, and so were some of my friends.

America changed in the following years, and blacks and whites now live and work together though not always in peace, something that is worsening, unfortunately. This I blame on the Democrat Party and famous black hucksters.

I moved over the border, leaving American racial conflict behind me. There are no black Mexicans in my part of the country. I understand there are some Mexican blacks on the Gulf Coast. Caribbean islands are full of black Latinos.

Statistically, Mexico is about 10 percent white and 90 percent brown. The brown 90 percent is split into 60 percent Mestizo and 30 percent indigenous. You often cannot tell Mestizos and indigenous apart. Their clothing can be a clue.

Often the indigenous speak their own language.

When I say there are no blacks in my part of Central Mexico, I mean Mexicans. I do know of two non-Mexican blacks here. One is half of a biracial couple from Washington D.C. who bought a home here for part-time living. The other is a young black American I’ve spotted now and then for years. I do not know her.

On rare occasion, I see a black tourist on the plaza. They invariably appear to be American. Yes, you can tell. But that’s rare. I guess American blacks prefer other vacation spots.

Maybe Cancún or Cabo.

Mostly, I live in a brown world, and I’m fine with that. I even married one, which I heartily recommend.

Multicultural mayhem

Don't shoot!I AM NO FAN of multiculturalism and diversity. It’s a dreadful thing to encourage. If it happens, it’s to be considered a problem to be handled as intelligently and kindly as possible.

Slavery in the United States ended 1.5 centuries ago, but the blowback continues in that America is now multicultural as far as blacks and whites are concerned. The two-race nation has been a problem since slave days. First, it was one sort of problem, primarily for blacks. Now, it’s a larger problem that affects everybody.

A multicultural society will always be a problem. It will always give you grief.

Right now the PC people are having hissy fits about failure to indict that unfortunate policeman, all of which is centered on race. The PC people (Barry’s fans) say it’s so unjust, and cops are so bad.

Here are the facts:

Of all police arrests, no matter the race, 99.9 percent do not end in a fatality.

In the past half century, the rate of blacks killed by cops has plummeted 79 percent.

There are 43 million blacks in the United States. In 2012 (latest stats), 123 were killed by police. Also in 2012, 326 whites were shot to death by police. In 2013, blacks committed 5,375 murders. Whites committed 4,396. Whites are 63 percent of the population, and blacks are just 13 percent.

In 90 percent of those black murders, the dead person is another black or the offender himself.

So, clearly, the problem is not cops killing “innocent” blacks. The problem is the black underclass, the collapse of the black family (which was far more stable a century ago; did you know that?),  the sky-high illegitimacy rate of blacks, and hand-wringing of guilt-ridden white collectivists and its far-reaching cultural effects.

But the root problem is multiculturalism. Different races, religions, languages do not live comfortably together, especially when one group has the upper hand, as will almost always be the case. Monocultural societies are far more peaceful. Mexico, Kenya, Ecuador, Sweden, etc., rarely have racial conflicts.

Neither do Japan, China, Poland, Russia, Chile and so on. Those nations do not actively embrace the 1960s, Kumbaya, hippie notion that people with stark differences can live under the same roof in peace.

They neither “celebrate diversity” nor “embrace multiculturalism.”

They embrace their unique national characters instead.

When such conflicts erupt in Africa, they are tribal,  not racial, issues, beautifully illustrating my point. It’s not always about race. It can be about culture, religion, tribes. Multiculturalism leads to trouble. Encouraging multiculturalism leads to worse trouble. Yet America, including the White House, continues to do it, big-time.

Expect more violence.

And more silly theatrics by ignorant football players as Al Sharpton grows richer by the day.

The awakening

It's morning in America.
It’s morning in America.

“THE OBAMA ERA is over.” So opined one of the collectivist mouthpieces Tuesday night on the basement-rated Bolshevik television network called MSNBC.

I was somewhat surprised at the election results. I was not as optimistic as many on our — the clearer thinking — side of the political spectrum. I mean, after Barry was re-elected against all common sense in 2012, who would have thought the American voter would come to his senses? Not me.

Here’s my prediction for the two years left in Barry’s term: The Republicans will try to legislatively set the national ship back on a straight course … and Barry will veto it, repeatedly. Simultaneously, Barry (wonderfully dubbed “The Precious” by a wag on Breitbart News) will attempt to further his left-wing dreams by edict.

International visits to other nations by the president will mostly end.* What would be the point? There will be an exception to this. Queen Michelle and the little princesses will continue taxpayer-funded vacations.

And the Queen will still accept all invites to fawning talk shows and celebrity parties. However, I imagine those invitations will be coming far less often than before, don’t you?

Upshots: Hillary (Barry in panties) now has the proverbial ice cube’s chance in Hell of being the next president. The NDP* has some serious and rapid thinking to do.

This morning, Ben Carson, an actual black dude, officially changed his party affiliation from Independent to Republican. Obviously, he has a presidential campaign in mind. I hope so.

Carson quote: “I believe in reasonable sized government. I believe in personal responsibility. I believe in individual freedom. And I believe in creating an environment to let free markets grow our economy. And all of that is very consistent with being a Republican.”  Amen, brother.

I like Carson, but there will be other contenders to replace The Precious. Time will tell. For now, let us celebrate.

Oh yes, almost forgot, Mia Love will become the first black Republican woman in the House of Representatives. You see, contrary to what the NDP endlessly drills into your noggins, Republicans have nothing against blacks. We just prefer the sharp ones, those who are not race-baiters like Al Sharpton and Pastor Jeremiah Wright.**

Inanity for the ages

Queen Michelle

THE UNITED STATES wallows in a sinkhole of adolescence and naïveté. And few people illustrate that better than the folks at the top, in the White House, the leaders of the nation. Can you envision Vladimir Putin or even his wife doing what you see above? Laura Bush? Ann Romney? China’s Xi Jinping? Mexico’s Peña Nieto? Not a chance. These are serious people, grownups.

Not even Hillary “What Difference Does It Make?” Clinton would stoop to this nincompoopery.

The White House is run by children who are taller than their mental and emotional peers in 8th Grade.

Sarah Palin, of whom I was not a fan for a long time but now I am, said yesterday that the reaction in the photo is the type of thing you see done by kids in junior high school. And that is correct. Read more here.

MORE INANITY

A HUMP DAY Party, whatever that is, has been cancelled at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota because a live camel the kids were bringing to the fiesta might offend Middle Eastern cultures. This requires no further comment by me, but here it is anyway:

The No. 1 religion of the Middle East — Mohammedanism — is backward, violent and keeps women in subjugation. It loves stoning women to death and cutting off people’s hands or heads. Offending them is the least we can do. It is a good thing. Read more here.

INANITY BONUS

THE NAACP chapter in Los Angeles has named Barry’s buddy and race hustler Al Sharpton its “Person of the Year.” The NAACP, decades ago, was an honorable organization that did great work. Those days are long gone. Read more here and weep.

First family: race-baiters

The guys

BARRY OBAMA will give the keynote address tomorrow in New York City at an annual conference sponsored by race hustler and profiteer Al Sharpton. Good Lord Almighty!

Sharpton, as you likely know, has made a highly profitable career out of promoting racial strife in America. His best-known escapade was that of pushing the bogus accusation in 1987 of a black teenager, Tawana Brawley, who claimed she had been raped and brutalized by a gang of white guys.

The charges were proven to be totally fabricated. In spite of Sharpton’s doing severe damage to the reputation and career of County Prosecutor Steven Pagones (a racist!), and of being ordered to pay thousands of dollars in damages, Sharpton never apologized to Pagones, and he never paid a penny in damages.

And just this week, it came to light that Sharpton was an FBI stool pigeon in the 1980s.

He is, in short, the sort of spectacularly unsavory individual that any president should keep at arm’s length. Barry, however, embraces him. And Michelle is no better.

Last year, the first lady was the keynote speaker at a convention of La Raza, a racist Latino organization, many members of which support illegal immigration and promote the return of large swaths of the southwestern United States to Mexico from which it was “stolen” in the 19th century.

La Raza means The Race. How clear can it get?

The First Family should be national unifiers. This family is precisely the opposite.

Here’s a nice piece on Sharpton.

PC terrorists

A profile
A profile

THE GREAT STATE of Arizona is in trouble again. The ACLU says police profiled a couple of Latino dudes. Well, duh, I say. That’s smart. Keep it up!

Whenever someone is accused of profiling, they invariably deny it. This is a poor reply. The proper response is yes, I profile. It makes sense. It is an effective law-enforcement tool.

I touched on this matter hereabouts a couple of years ago, so I will not repeat myself. Click here if you want a fuller explanation of the perfect sense of profiling.

That the PC Legions have effectively gagged all conversation about the value of profiling is sad, pathetic and dangerous. They are a terror group. Just ask the former CEO of Firefox who contributed $1,000 to support traditional marriage in California in 2008,* booted from his job last week for the sin.

It’s lamentable that the PC Brown Shirts (no pun intended) have such an innocuous name. Politically correct. Sounds perfectly reasonable, something that might appeal to any end of the belief spectrum. Everybody wants to be correct, and most of us are convinced we are. The PC name is a sweet deception.

What we actually have is a Gestapo, a Stasi, a KGB, a Red Guard in miniature, still in sour-faced, angry, youth mode, having yet to attain adulthood. This Movement is now running America.

It is made up of two sectors:

1.  Belligerent Leftists. This is the smaller of the two groups, but their anger and sense of total righteousness drives the Movement and makes it dangerous. They abound on campus.

2. The Pawns. This more numerous segment consists of people across society who are poorly informed (no sense of history or human nature) and basically aren’t paying attention. But supporting “the oppressed” sounds nice to them and fair. They voted for Barry not once but twice.

These are the sort of people who, when Dachau was liberated in 1945, lived in a nearby town and who claimed they had no idea what was happening behind the razor wire down the road. And many were telling the truth because they weren’t paying attention, didn’t care.

Currently, disobeying edicts of the Politically Correct Brown Shirts will only get you fired from your job and often shunned from society, depending on where you live and work. You won’t be shot or gassed just yet.

The Movement hasn’t reached adulthood. But it’s working out, popping vitamins.

It’s still pre-1932.

One of the loudest platoons of Sector No. 1 are gay activists who will sue your pants off if you won’t bake their wedding cakes or photograph their Rainbow events. It can get uglier if you criticize their marriages. This “difference of opinion” is what put Firefox’s CEO out on the street. Unacceptable ideas.

Interestingly, journalist Andrew Sullivan, quite gay and liberal, said this about the Firefox case in a post titled “The Hounding of a Heretic” on the popular blog The Daily Dish:

The whole episode disgusts me – as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society. If this is the gay rights movement today – hounding our opponents with a fanaticism more like the religious right than anyone else – then count me out. If we are about intimidating the free speech of others, we are no better than the anti-gay bullies who came before us.

Gay bullies are PC Brown Shirts, but so are other permanently aggrieved segments of spoiled America. Many are minorities because it’s attractive to be aggrieved if you’re a minority. It can also be convenient and profitable. (See Al Sharpton.) But many in Sector No. 1 are well-off, white, belligerent Leftists.

And their willing pawns live their lives, not noticing the razor wire growing higher just up the road.
