Diversity Enriches Us.

Sigh, rhetorical question, where's the outrage, where's the plastering never ending front page coverage from the New York Times, like the non rape Duke case??

Learning from Diversity

The Case for Expatriation

December 8, 2007


Again it happens. In Baltimore a young white woman boards a bus and wants to sit down. Each time she tries to take a seat she is told by nine black middle-schools students, ages 14 and 15, including three girls, that she can’t. Finally she sits anyway. The little—the middle-school students, I mean—attack her.

From the Examiner, “She sustained ‘serious injuries’ and had to be transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, according to a police report…[Sarah] Kreager suffered two broken bones in her left eye socket, police said. She had eye muscles that were damaged…She had deep lacerations on the top of her head and another above her neck.” Her face will never be the same.

Life in the United States. Race relations as usual. Journalism as usual. I suppose you have been swamped, dear reader, by the national press coverage of this racial attack—right? The outrage? You’ve heard about it over and over on the lobotomy box? Editorialists everywhere just won’t let it rest? Sure.

Curious. Don Imus, apparently a radio jock of some sort, refers to a black women’s basketball team as “nappy-headed hos.” Rude, certainly, and unnecessary, but nothing more. It becomes national news and he loses his job. Blacks beat a white woman until her bones break and…near silence.

I’m sick of it. I’m sick of these attacks and of the animals that commit them. And I’m sick of the attitude of the press. But I’m doubtless alone in my sentiments. Right?

The headline in the WJS account says, “Woman Attacked On Bus Placed In Witness Protection.” Why? The only reason can be the expectation that blacks will try to kill her to prevent her from testifying against the attackers. Things are out of control.

The attack was not just a crime, but a particular type of crime. In Mexico, where I live, there is crime, but it is usually economic. If I walked in a bad part of Guadalajara by night with a Rolex on my arm, an enterprising gangster might well demand it at knifepoint. If I peaceably gave him the Rolex, he would likely just leave with it. It’s about money. Yes, crimes of passion occur when men got boozed up and fight over women or which football team is best. These are easily avoided.

But when a group of very young blacks, unprovoked, attack a defenseless white women, with the intention of badly hurting her, break her bones, and then try to drag her off the bus, we see a different sort of crime. The only motive is racial hatred.

Crimes of this type are either increasingly common or increasingly visible because of the internet. They involve gang rapes of white women, forced humiliation as for example by being compelled to provide blow jobs in front of boyfriends, followed by murder. The press assiduously covers them up. The usual formulation is that “youths” were responsible or, very infrequently, “minority youths.” A photo of the victims may appear, but not of the perpetrators. Press coverage will be as local as possible. On the web I recently saw television coverage of one such crime in Florida in which the reporteress kept the camera below the waists of those involved to avoid racial identification.

Some might comment that our elite - many of whom have open contempt for "Americans" and don't really see themselves as such - are simply bias against white people. Perhaps, but they have probably come to realize, consciously or unconsciously, that you have to be increasingly authoritarian and brazenly disregard individual liberty if you main goal is to create and hold together a 'diverse' society. Diversity as an ideal is foolish and has been shown, over and over to not work.

As repeated ad-nasuem on this blog, that's not to say that all immigration, all minorities, whatever, are bad- for example, letting small numbers of educated Indians into this country was probably good, letting large numbers including poor and uneducated will lead to ethnic blocks, alienation and soaring crime rates, as it has with Pakis in the UK.

Even if someone or their parents are recent immigrants, and value the cultural, monetary and psychological sacrifice it took to come here, they in particular should realize that if the current system and 'goals' - of making us more diverse continue - the US will become a place to emigrate from, rather than immigrate to.
