Repost from the old site.
Let us journey to Waltham, Massachusetts, home of the acclaimed Jewish Brandeis University. The population is 84% White, 9% Hispanic, 4% Black and 3% mixed race.
That’s not really remarkable, and personally, I would prefer to live in a mostly-White town for one main reason.
For, though it’s boring (repressed Whites are uptight, intolerant and dull), the cops are terrible because they have nothing to do (so they just harass people they don’t like) and the residents call the cops way too much (because there is no crime, so they call the cops for no reason), it’s better than living in the “Hood” with “niggas” of various races.
Despite the lunatic theories of White Nationalists that White people have some sort of inbred goodness, decency, law-abidingness and “altruism” about them, the record is quite a bit more dubious.
In the 1300′s in the UK, Steven Pinker notes that the homicide rate was about 50 times what it is today. Those were White folks doing all that killing, and that puts even East St. Louis, Philadelphia and New Orleans to shame.
The US homicide rate from 1910-1930 was about as high or higher than the sky-high rates that occurred when “US society broke down” after the counterculture, liberalism and civil rights unleashed Blacks, and uncivilized behavior in general, on peaceable White folks, according to the White Nationalist narrative.
Most of this crime was being committed, curiously enough, by White folks. One wonders how it is that “society broke down” from 1910-1930 during Mighty Whitey Paradise.
As you can see, the golden days of yore were not always so golden. Sure, the exams to graduate from high school were hard, but only about 1% of the population graduated, and almost all of them were White.
Blacks reeled under Jim Crow segregation and terror and American Indians were not even citizens. Hispanics had their own brand of apartheid to deal with in the Southwest. Racial hatred of Chinese, of all races, was peaking.
It was fashionable to drive animals into extinction, and women could not even vote. The rich were rich and the poor were poor, and there was hardly a chance to move between the two groups, such was US caste-ism. A real and true US imperialism, complete with colonies and the whole nine yards, was all the rage. Such is the wonderful world that the White Nationalists wish to recreate.
I recently read an online series about Five Corners, a neighborhood in New York in the 1800′s. Filled with Irishmen and a fair number of Blacks, it resembled in most ways our seething Underclass ghettos of today. Prostitution, pimping, drunkenness, unemployment, constant fighting, killing and thievery, vast numbers of humans packed into modest structures, no public services at all, such was our budding democracy.
The court dockets were filled with one White man after another going down big time for this or that petty crime. The names were all Irish. The Irish were for all practical purposes a criminalized race. Many if not most young Irish males could look forward to jail or prison. Irish and later Italian and Jewish street gangs terrorized the streets in a similar way to the Black and Brown idiots of today.
The Irish did have strong families somehow through all this mess, and they did have their religion. After decades of Underclassness, they slowly graduated to become just another non-problematic ethnic component of White America.
Around the same time, something funny happened in California. Gold was discovered. From all over the world, people came, almost all single men. From Polynesia, India, Latin America, China, Mexico and all over the US, young men came to make their fortune. They failed to bring any women with them. Mining camps composed of single men sprung up all over California. And a funny thing happened.
The crime rate went through the roof. Newly-found riches, lack of effective police force, dearth of the civilizing and male-controlling influence of women, and most especially the mere presence of so many single males in one place, made the crime rate go nuts, in particular the homicide rate.
Most of the criminals were White. Eventually, the law came and soon men were hung every week, to set an example and deter future offenses. Wild crowds gathered to watch the hangings, then went right back to the camps to drink, gamble, fight, whoremonger, steal and kill.
Alarmed by the mass degeneracy, preachers descended on the camps. Religion became wildly popular, and men crowded the sermons on every Sunday. Afterwards, they went back to their camps and the crime wave started anew.
After a while, more and more women started filtering into the scene and the Gold Rush itself started dying down. As men married and the state settled in, the crime rate went down. But never has the crime rate been so high in the US as in California during the Gold Rush. It makes the killing fields of the US streets in the 80′s and 90′s look like a picnic.
From the Gold Rush crime wave, we learn an important lesson: that of civilizing males via marriage. Every society has promoted marriage, for good reason.
Men, left unmarried, eat poorly, drink, take drugs, gamble, blow money, are promiscuous or whore around, refuse to take care of their health, and steal from, fight and especially kill each other. In other words, single males are bad for society, especially in large numbers.
Males in general are incapable of being both civilized and single, and a wife is necessary to tame the male beast. This is the rationale behind the often-harsh promotion of marriage by many societies: single guys are bad news. Working civilization is hardly possible unless most males marry.
And I say this as a lifelong heterosexual bachelor.
In the 1930′s, once again the US crime rate exploded, especially the homicide rate. It’s hard to say who was doing the killing, as we don’t have a lot of data about the era. But people felt safe: my mother’s family used to serve dinners to homeless men (all White) who came around to the back porch most nights. The were always nice and nothing bad ever happened. Can you imagine anyone doing that today?
Yet the homicide rate in the 1930′s was high all through the Depression – as high or higher than the nastiest years of 1970-1995. Probably just a case of a lot of poor White men killing each other for stupid reasons.
There was probably a lot of gangland homicide too – the murder rate had been very high all through those Roaring 20′s we were taught to adore (though only the richest 20% of the nation made money and had a roaring time, and the bottom 80% got royally screwed).
What does all this tell us? That White folks, obviously capable of tons of Organized Violence (war) are also capable of tons of Disorganized Violence (crime). There is no White gene for altruism or law-abidingness, helping little old ladies across the street, buying Girl Scout cookies, or any of that crap. True, US Whites are relatively law-abiding today, but they can turn Underclass in a New York minute.
And what does this long excursion tell us about Waltham, Massachusetts? Well, let us click the link. Note that the city is 84% White. Making up only 9% of the population, Hispanics are a full 62% of the wanted criminals in town. Blacks, only 4% of the population, make up 25% of the wanted criminals. Whites, with 84% of the population, make up only 8% of the wanted criminals.
Blacks are 65 TIMES more likely to be a wanted criminal in this town than Whites. Hispanics, almost all of whom are Guatemalans (I assure you that 85% of them, minimum, are illegal aliens), are 72 TIMES more likely to be a wanted criminal in this town that Whites are.
People wonder about White Flight and White opposition to illegal immigration,or even White Nationalist opposition to resettling Black African refugees in the US. Those figures speak for themselves. This is what White Rage is all about – crime. Forget racism and all that.
We can go on and on about all the law-abiding Hispanics (even illegals) and Blacks. Lord knows I’ve met enough of them in my time (I taught in LA schools for years, including Compton). But at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter that most Blacks or Hispanics are ok or even morally exceptional. Like apples in a bag, it only takes a certain number to spoil the bunch.
And as long as Hispanics and Blacks will tend to have more gang-members, graffiti-sprayers and criminals than Whites, Whites are going to run away.
We can also go on about whether these varying crime rates are due to genes, culture, poverty, racism or this or that. When it comes down to brass tacks, none of this ivory tower stuff matters.
Genes, environment, culture and all sorts of other variables combine to create phenotype. Phenotype is what you see when you look at culture from afar, as if in a telescope. Some combination of genes and environment, ranging from 0% to 100% for each, combines to produce phenotype. But leave the number-crunching to the eggheads.
The only important variable is that US Blacks and Hispanics (mostly poor Blacks and Hispanics) have a phenotype that has a crime rate that is vastly higher than US Whites. The difference is explained completely by neither poverty nor racism, not that it matters anyway. All that matters are raw numbers, and those numbers make White folks run.
I am convinced that in the US today, most other races also with to live around Whites. Most Blacks, when interviewed, say they want to live in a “diverse” neighborhood – in other words, not a Black one. In California we are starting to see Hispanics fleeing Hispanic-wrecked cities for White small towns – I know this because I have met some of these fleeing Hispanics engaging in “Hispanic flight”.
A low crime rate is appealing to law-abiding folks of all races.
My grandparents lived in South Los Angeles, near Westchester. It was a very nice neighborhood with low crime, on 77th Street. At some point in the 1960′s, the first Black family moved in. Instead of being a tragedy, it was a reason to throw a party. The woman was a schoolteacher, the man was a janitor and the kids were wonderful. My grandma adored the two boys and practically adopted them.
Slowly, more and more Blacks moved in and the neighborhood characteristically declined, as it so typically does. At some point, these places hit something called “critical mass” where Black culture takes over, White flight accelerates, and the road to ruin gets paved. Sometime around then, that wonderful Black couple decided to move.
When asked why he was moving, the man gritted his teeth and looked at the ground. The neighborhood had become “too Black”, with all the attendant baggage that often carries, and he couldn’t take it anymore. The couple packed for new pastures, probably Whiter pastures, and became participants in the Black corollary of White Flight – Black Flight.
I wish I could offer you solutions, but that is not the way of this blog. I toss out thorny problems, throw the whole barbed wire mess into your lap and tell you to figure it out if you wish or can. For today, let us call it an early Christmas present. Further, we hope to explicate thorny and confusing matters with some clear light and pour scorn on idiotic theories and viewpoints.
But the truth is, Presidential debates notwithstanding, there really are no solutions for most of the problems facing man or society. There are only ameliorizations, exacerbations or recrudescences.
