The Cancer of Human History
Note that Jared Diamond, supposed disciple of reason and realism, could not conceal his real feelings on the topic of European success and non-European failure. He spoke of the “stink of racism,” which is, of course, the stink of racism by Whites. He obviously likes the idea of African Blacks making “mincemeat” of Europeans and of Aztecs driving Europeans “into the sea.” In short, he’s a goyophobe, just like his co-ethnic Susan Sontag (1933–2004). In her most famous piece of writing, Sontag laid bare the anti-White hatred that is at the heart of anti-racism:
If America is the culmination of Western white civilization, as everyone from the Left to the Right declares, then there must be something terribly wrong with Western white civilization. This is a painful truth; few of us want to go that far. … The truth is that Mozart, Pascal, Boolean algebra, Shakespeare, parliamentary government, baroque churches, Newton, the emancipation of women, Kant, Marx, Balanchine ballets, et al., don’t redeem what this particular civilization has wrought upon the world. The white race is the cancer of human history; it is the white race and it alone — its ideologies and inventions — which eradicates autonomous civilizations wherever it spreads, which has upset the ecological balance of the planet, which now threatens the very existence of life itself. [italics in original] (See “Susan Sontag’s Jewish World,” Kevin MacDonald, The Occidental Observer, 17th October 2017)
Sontag indicts “the white race” as uniquely evil, uniquely culpable, and uniquely pernicious. In effect, she’s promulgating a blood libel that makes nonsense of leftist claims about human equality. The emotional fuel of anti-racism is hatred of Whites and the true aim of anti-racism is not equality but revenge. Jewish goyophobes like Stephen Jay Gould, Jared Diamond and Susan Sontag created this ideology using their high verbal IQ and their extensive ethnic networking in the media and academia. Blacks and other non-Whites, who could not have created this ideology by themselves, have nevertheless taken it up with great enthusiasm. Here is a recent example in the Guardian:
Is white America ready to confront its racism? Philosopher George Yancy says we need a ‘crisis’
In his new book [Backlash: What Happens When We Talk Honestly about Racism in America, 2018], philosopher George Yancy uncovers just how unprepared even well-meaning whites are for a courageous conversation about race. …
White America, all Americans, must witness the vileness. Backlash inundates its white reader with unmitigated reality, and asks white readers to dwell within a space of black trauma. And it asks the white reader to linger, to touch the truth about their whiteness and its complicity with that trauma. So, it dares to ask “good whites” to explore their racism, their hatred, their white racist microaggressions and complicity with white racist macroaggressions. The book is an outgrowth of a post-racial America that was always a lie. And it asks white readers, in the words of James Baldwin, to use it as a disagreeable mirror to look at themselves. …
White racism is thus a continuum, one that includes the KKK [Ku-Klux Klan], the loving white Christian and the antiracist white. Even good, moral white people, those who have black friends, friends of color, married to people of color, fight for racial justice and so on, don’t escape white racist injustice against black people and people of color; they all continue to be implicated within structures of white privilege and to embody, whether they realize it or not, society’s racist sensibilities. White people possess white privilege or white immunity from racial disease. And because of this, others of us, black people and people of color, reap the social, political and existential pains of that racialized social skin. …
White America needs to engage in a form of crisis regarding its false and oppressive identity. It needs to grapple seriously with why it needed to project its vileness onto black people and people of color in the first place. Perhaps it needs to see its emptiness, to truly love itself beyond its continued de facto segregated spaces, its insularity. The gift contained in Backlash offers an embodied way of rethinking, re-feeling and re-positioning what it means to be white. It is a gift that offers loss, which is so counterintuitive.
Today is white America’s time to weep, to become vulnerable, and un-suture itself, which means, for me, a process of suffering oneself to be seen, of remaining wounded. The gift of Backlash is a radical call to white America to tarry with its own racist vomit, and to linger with the stench of the racist catastrophe of which it is responsible, before any talk of “reconciliation” is even possible. (Is white America ready to confront its racism? Philosopher George Yancy says we need a ‘crisis,’ The Guardian, 24th April 2018)
Where Jared Diamond had the “stench of racism,” George Yancy has “the stench of the racist catastrophe.” And there’s more where that came from: Yancy speaks of “vileness,” “hatred,” “racial disease,” the “emptiness” of White America, and the “racist vomit” of White America. All this would be amusing if it were not so typical of Black self-righteousness and so redolent of the violence constantly directed by Blacks against Whites not just in America but everywhere Blacks come into contact with Whites, from South Africa to Britain.
The historical dice
Yancy plainly believes in the same blood libel as Susan Sontag. For him too the “white race is the cancer of human history,” uniquely culpable and uniquely — indeed innately — evil in its treatment of oppressed and traumatized Blacks. Recall his demand for a “courageous conversation about race.” By that, he means that Blacks will deliver a self-righteous monologue that Whites must accept without question. But his posturing bursts like an over-inflated bladder at the first prick of logic. If we’re all the same under the skin, it is merely chance that Whites oppressed Blacks and not vice versa.
Jared Diamond claimed that Europe had easily domesticable species and Africa didn’t (others disagree). That biogeographic luck translated into a technological and military superiority for Europe that, yes, Europeans chose to exploit in “racist” ways. But Black Africans would have done the same if the historical and biogeographical dice had rolled in their favour. Anti-racism states that we are all the same under the skin — intellectually, temperamentally and morally. Talk of “stenches,” “racist vomit” and “vileness” is therefore irrational and illogical. But such talk will continue, because anti-racism is no more based on logic than feminism is. Both of these ideologies are fueled on hatred and aim at capturing power, not creating equality. Both seek to privilege an innately virtuous in-group over an innately wicked out-group. For anti-racism, the in-group is non-Whites and the out-group is Whites; for feminism, the in-group is women and the out-group is men.
The central evil of history
Or rather: the out-group for feminism is White men. After all, feminism and anti-racism are what the Guardian would call synergistic: they work together to capture power and privilege for leftists. But there are huge contradictions within them that cannot be discussed within the mainstream. Let’s examine what anti-racism would regard as the central evil of history, that is, slavery. You might call it the worst patch of “racist vomit” splattered across the world by White supremacism and the deepest wound inflicted on the Black psyche by Whites. Logic dictates, therefore, the slavery must be deeply abhorrent to Black Africans, and particularly to those Black Africans who are educated enough to understand the true horror and depravity of the Atlantic slave-trade.
But what logic dictates and what reality produces are often very different things:
A [Nigerian] couple who kept a man in servitude for almost a quarter of a century after illegally bringing him to Britain have been jailed for six years each. Emmanuel Edet, 61, a former NHS [National Health Service] obstetrician, and Antan Edet, 58, a midwife, kept Ofonime Sunday Inuk as a “houseboy” after telling immigration officials he was their teenage son when they arrived from Nigeria in 1989. Over the next 24 years Inuk worked unpaid up to 17 hours a day looking after the couple’s two sons, cooking, cleaning and gardening. For long periods of time he had to sleep on a hall floor. He eventually managed to alert a charity to his plight after the couple went to Nigeria for Christmas in 2013, and they were arrested the following March. …
The court heard that the sum he was in theory owed for his years of work ran into hundreds of thousands of pounds. … Inuk told the trial that his passport was confiscated and he was told that if he left the house he would be deported as an illegal immigrant. The gently spoken victim, who gave his evidence from behind a screen so he could not see his tormentors, said the Edets changed his name and added him to their family passport as their son when they brought him, aged about 13 or 14, to the UK in 1989 via Israel. He had agreed to go with them because he believed he would be paid and educated. He lived with the couple at several locations including London and Walsall, and kept a diary in which he catalogued his treatment at the hands of people he called “Sir” and “Ma”. (Couple jailed after keeping man as slave for 24 years, The Guardian, 7th Dec 2015)
Emmanuel and Antan Edet were highly educated Blacks who saw nothing wrong in keeping a slave for “almost quarter of a century.” A similar case occurred in America a year later, when the Nigerian couple Chudy and Sandra Nsobundu were convicted of forcing “a Nigerian woman to work nearly 20 hours a day taking care of their home and five children and home without pay for two years.” Slavery is part of modern Nigerian culture. It is also part of modern Filipino culture: the late Filipino-American journalist Alex Tizon won widespread acclaim for his essay “My Family’s Slave,” a moving and disturbing account of a woman who was exactly that: a slave to his family for fifty-six years.
Whites as modern slave-owners
But you can also find Whites in the modern West who keep slaves. Unfortunately for leftism, these slave-owners further contradict the unique evil attributed to Whites by anti-racism, because these Whites belong to allegedly oppressed minorities (and are undoubtedly genetically distinct from the White majority). In one story, The Guardian coyly describe some White slave-owners as a “UK family … based on Traveller sites.” In other words, the slave-owners were Travellers, a term used for English Gypsies and a distinct ethnic group in Ireland:
Eleven members of a Lincolnshire family have been convicted of a series of modern slavery offences after forcing at least 18 victims — including homeless people and some with learning disabilities — to work for little or no pay and live in squalid conditions for up to 26 years. The members of the Rooney family, who were based on Traveller sites in Lincoln, targeted vulnerable people, including some with alcohol or drug addiction, and deliberately looked for potential captives on the streets, Nottingham crown court heard.
The impact of the forced labour on the mental and physical health of the victims had been severe, prosecutors said, with some being malnourished, subjected to beatings and threatened. One of the victims was found to have been working for the family for 26 years. The Rooneys lured in their captives with offers of work and accommodation but once they accepted they were allocated dilapidated caravans mostly with no heating, water or toilet facilities, prosecutors said. Some victims reported having to use rudimentary toilets in the woods nearby. One victim was ordered to dig his own grave and told “that’s where you’re going” if he did not sign a bogus work contract. … The 11 gang members in the Lincolnshire case, convicted of fraud and slavery charges, used the money they made from their workers to pay for holidays to Barbados, cosmetic surgery and coaching at a Manchester United football school. (UK family found guilty of enslaving homeless and disabled people, The Guardian, 11th August 2017)
In this story, the villains were from an oppressed minority and the victims from the oppressive majority. According to anti-racism, this is not how the world is supposed to work. Minorities should be be saintly, not sadistic. Nigerians, Filipinos and Travellers should not be keeping slaves: they should be in solidarity with slaves, fighting to rescue them from White supremacists and their “racist vomit.”
Neither accidental nor anomalous
In fact, it was Whites who rescued slaves from minorities like Nigerians and Travellers. Furthermore, in each of the stories above the slavery was neither accidental nor anomalous. Instead, it was part of a deeply rooted culture in which the slave-owners regarded themselves as superior and fully entitled to enslave members of an inferior group. In short, racial supremacism was at work. All the vices attributed exclusively to Whites by anti-racism exist among non-Whites — indeed, flourish among non-Whites. That is reality, but leftist ideology is based on the denial of reality. It claims to seek equality while actually seeking power.
But its contradictions and illogicalities are no handicap when critics of leftism are easily silenced or discredited. Thanks to alternative media and the internet, it has become harder to silence critics and other dissidents. And although the left made frantic efforts to discredit Donald Trump, he won the US presidency against massive odds. Furthermore, scientific research is now moving decisively and unstoppably against the fundamental axiom of anti-racism. Human groups are not all equal in potential and racism does not explain non-White failure.
Two can play at that game
As leftist ideologies of unreality come under increasingly scrutiny, their true aims will become more apparent. Anti-racists don’t really believe in human equality. They are motivated by hatred of Whites, not by love of humanity. They have sought to deny Whites any positive identity while encouraging non-Whites to assert themselves in ever more self-righteous and aggressive ways against the White majority.
But identity politics only works for the left when it is a one-sided game. The election of Donald Trump showed us that Whites are beginning to play the game too. Now nationalist parties are rising or already in power across Europe, from Hungary and Poland to Italy and Austria. And when identity politics become a two-sided game, Whites will win.
