The Alt Left View on Anti-Black Racism

Rambo: Saw you’re 10-6-17 post regarding some guy calling you a racist. Left the first comment about that. P.S. I happen to be a Black guy.

The real hardcore nasty racism against Black people bothers me. I do not mean just words and whatnot, but ugly words are still gnarly. It’s hard to argue that you’re not racist against Blacks when you care calling them niggers all the time like so many of these Alt Right types do. Used in a certain way, that is a very cruel word to use against Black people. It is nearly a slap in the face. It’s literally a fighting word.

Real discrimination against Blacks bothers me too. I am against discrimination! However, I would argue that disparate impact has to go, and affirmative action is not the way to deal with discrimination.

I am outraged at the way Blacks are having their right to vote taken away from them. It’s like we are back to Jim Crow.

It’s little known, but the Housing Rights Act is barely enforced at all. It’s a great law, the last of the great civil rights laws of the Second Liberation, but it’s toothless a lot of the time. They do have investigators they send out, and it is pretty simple to pick up discrimination, but they get constant budget cuts, especially when Republicans came in. Trump put this silly Tom named Ben Carson in charge of HUD, and one of the first things this House Negro said was that he would not enforce the Housing Rights Act.

Job discrimination has declined dramatically, but it’s still out there. Promotion discrimination is actually a more serious problem. The EEOC generally has good resources to fight this, and they do all the time. Good for them. The lawwuits are generally not abusive (though the disparate impact ones are) and most of the time, they are filing suit against some nasty policies.

Trump’s softer racism is starting to bother me too. When there are multiple people doing something he doesn’t like, he singles out the Black man and goes after him. And he seems to single out Blacks for attacks based on their behavior. This NFL flap feels racist to me. He just can’t resist any opportunity to bash Blacks. I think he is trying to win points with his racist base this way.

It is sickening that Jeff Sessions is now Attorney General. This is one nasty, ugly, old cracker White man from the South. He’s an unreconstructed Jim Crow type racist. His racism is raw and unmasked. They put this anti-Black racist cracker in charge of enforcing the laws of this land! Outrageous!

The modern antiracist movement of which many Blacks are a part of has gone completely bonkers and off the deep end. They have taken things way too far, and all they are doing is making people mad. Plus they are fighting for some very dubious things. Even worse, they are driving some formerly sympathetic Whites over to the overt racist side as the logic of the crazy debate is that you are with either the CRT kooks or the nasty racists, and there’s no middle ground. You have to side with one idiot or the other. It’s a game of Pick Your Fool.

But the correct response to the craziness and stupidity and even wicked folly of modern anti-racism is not be become a racist in response. The correct response is to say the Hell with the CRT Cultural Left antiracists and the Hell with the real racists too!

There’s nothing wrong with antiracism or better yet, nonracism. I like the word nonracism better than antiracism, as the modern version has poisoned the word to where it’s not even a good thing any more. Further, antiracism seems to mean that one must be consumed with a constant war against racism wherever it rears its ugly head. I don’t agree with that. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have better things to do than to use up all my energy battling racist assholes.

Racism will never go away anyway, so in that sense the modern antiracists are either attacking windmills with spears, or worse, racism has become their very own White Whale. The best response is probably to line up with neither the antiracists nor the racist bastards and instead to simply drop out of the war. That doesn’t mean refusing to take a side. It means trying not to be racist yourself and opposing real racism at least in your mind while somewhat dropping out of the interminable war against the racist Leviathan.

But most of the principles of original Civil Rights Movement of Rosa Parks, the Little Rock Seven, James Meredith, SNCC, Martin and even late Malcolm are righteous things, and those values are still very much worth holding. The Alt Left in general upholds the values of the early Civil Rights Movement or what we call the Second Liberation, with a couple of exceptions for overreach.

  1. I’ve always felt that the alt-left should reject both classic anti-black racism a-la the alt-right, American Renaissance and a lot of neo-confederate groups, while likewise rejecting the anti-white left. Black Lives Matter is not a comprehensively anti-white movement, but there are anti-white people in it and expression of anti-white sentiments is tolerated as an expression of legitimate anger on part of non-whites. I think that this is counterproductive. Plus you get a lot of frivolous “white bashing” even in mainstream liberal outlets. Most of it is inconsequential, but is doing more harm than good. It is provided a much not needed air of legitimacy to alt-right narratives of persecution and even genocide against whites.

    Martin Luther King Jr. got it right when he said “content of their character rather than the color of their skin.” Unfortunately, deeply rooted political machines benefit from both black resentment and white anxiety, and as a result, MLK’s dream seems to get further away rather than closer, as you think it would after many decades of civil rights efforts.

    Racism is quite real. In fact, as I said before, racists harassed a black man/white woman with mixed kids couple out of my valley a few years back. In fact, it’s quite easy to get on their bad side here. Basically, the place is a racist nightmare. However, though, a heavily non-white area is the same – only in reverse. So, of course, this is ethnic politics driven by hot-heads.

    One look at social media is enough to tell ethnic politics, no matter what the race, is outrageous and I have social media friends both black and white to find out. People won’t shut up about it, just like they will not about whatever else they’re blabbing their mouth about. Sadly, though, only the ones located in an area hostile to their particular radical views get any heat for their mouth.

    That’s a good point there and that’s why anti-racists seem to be foolish and silly. In fact, it’s just a good idea to avoid racists and if that’s impossible just move to a more diverse area. In fact, a diverse area is often only 20 miles away or something.

    Anti-racists are basically expressing hate because the people they’re trying to convert don’t care. It’s like talking to a wall. But anti-racists know this so, again, it’s just a lot venting for anti-racists.

  5. Robert, when do you want to do an interview? We can ask each other tit-for-tat questions, if you want. Just email me at hv@acidright.info.

    You made the most important point of all right up front, probably without even knowing it, and that is this: As long as there are human beings on the planet, there will be racism. It’s a very natural human attribute. Trying to “get rid of” racism is like watching a dog trying to catch up to a tail by chasing it. Sorry, won’t happen.

    Here’s my view on anti-black racism in America:

    I think it is (generally speaking) justified. I say this because African-Americans (I.e. slave-descended blacks of colonial American origin) are collectively a lost cause and generally terrible people. I mean I struggle think of a more useless or violent group of people than AA’s.

    Sure not all AA’s are bad people — but for the most part they are absolute scum. Even Africans have a general dislike for AA’s. However I don’t hate blacks as a whole — I have nothing against Africans.

    Blacks from Africa living in Europe are usually good people. I believe the average Nigerian and Ghanian-American has a higher income than the average White American. As for AA’s though? Not gonna lie I have a passionate hatred for them. Sure I hate certain types of white people as well (rednecks, white trash, etc.) but even those types of white people aren’t extremely violent, just dumb and uneducated. AA’s are an extremely violent people for some reason. I mean it can’t be genetics because Aframs are 20-30% non-African on average. West African nations like Ghana and Burkina Faso have lower homicides than many European nations. AA’s just have some deeply criminal corrupted culture similar to that of Gypsies in my opinion. I think most blacks in America are just a lost cause and not even worth wasting time on anymore. They turned so many cities in America (e.g. Detroit, Baltimore, St Louis et al.) into 3rd world violent shitholes. They ruin virtually every area they inhabit in large numbers. They have a toxic, degenerate, backwards, anti-intellectual, and ghetto culture. Just an awful group of people for the most part.

      Why bother having a passionate hatred for us?

    • Jason Y

      African Americans are just being human, responding to the culture and the card they’ve been dealt with. On the other hand, those cutting them down, are resorting to a “holier than thou” attitude – and on top of that, liberals are exhibiting that same attitude against them (so-called rural white people).

      Most conservatives blame the welfare state (which they say spoiled them), but obviously, Robert doesn’t,

    AA is Alcoholics Anonymous – or maybe African Anonymous 😆
