Westernization and Re-Africanization of New World Blacks

Jason Y writes:

What about blacks? Again, no connection to race, the bad attributes of some of them are due to choice, and environment. The genetic role is way exaggerated.

I used to believe that about Black people too, until I started doing some research on the Blacks of the Caribbean and then I had extensive dealings with the Blacks of Africa. It slowly began to dawn one. This is an exaggeration of course, but my God!

They’re the same everywhere!

That’s what I thought.

It isn’t 100% true of course. But a lot of the stereotypes we have about US Blacks, good and bad, are reproduced with amazing accuracy in the Caribbean and then to a far greater extent, at least on the downside. As far as the negative side, African Blacks reproduce all of the negative qualities of US Blacks, except African Blacks display these qualities in far more exaggerated ways.

Bottom line is that as much as we like to put down US Blacks, they are far more civilized than African Blacks, and I think they are even more civilized than Caribbean Blacks, who have done a pretty good job of being civilizational incompetents down there. I will say though that Caribbean Blacks also are much more civilized than African Blacks.

This begs the question of why, as their genes are the same.

US Blacks do have some White in them at 17% of their gene pool. Is that really enough to dramatically change their behavior for the better. Caribbean Blacks are 9% White on average. Inject 10-20% White in a Black man and he acts vastly better? I am very dubious of this. Also the IQ increases in US Blacks are far above what we might expect to see based on White admixture. With White admixture alone, US Black IQ might be 73. Yet it is much higher than that at 86. British Jamaican Blacks also hit 86, while Jamaican Blacks back home score 72. Simply by being born and raised in the UK, a Jamaican Black gains an incredible 14 IQ points!

Similarly, US Black IQ’s are 13 points higher than we would expect them to be based on White admixture.

What’s going on?

Blacks have been breeding eugenically. Since 1900, Black head size has increased dramatically, and in addition, archaic features have faded while more progressive features have heightened. Hence modern Blacks and Whites look more like each other than either resembles their own ancestors.

I believe that some combination of eugenic breeding, epigenetic factors, improved environment and nutrition probably account for the unexpected 13 point IQ rise in US Blacks.

For UK Blacks, it is probably just an improved environment that is raising IQ’s by up to 14 points.

In addition, Blacks have been in the US for 200-350 years. During at least a good portion of that time, they were Christianized and in addition, they were raised under the umbrella of White civilization. White civilization is generally a civilizing environment. US Blacks were Christianized, Westernized and raised in a civilizing White environment for up to 350 years. Over that period, I would assume that a lot of the African has gone out of US Blacks.

In addition, Caribbean Blacks seem much more civilized than US Blacks. They are experiencing a booming Flynn Effect in IQ, but so is Kenya for that matter. What else is going on? Most Caribbean Blacks, like US Blacks, have been raised under White civilization for about as long as US Blacks have.

The best developed Caribbean islands have a White core that holds down the ship, creates and helps maintain a civilized appearance and keeps the economy chugging along. It’s not that Bahamas is where it is simply due to its 13% White population, but I believe that that small White core plays a role in “holding down the ship” or “keeping the train on its tracks.” That is, if that White population left the Bahamas next year, I believe that over a relatively brief period of time, the Bahamas would sink.

The equivalent of Africa in the Caribbean is Haiti. There are many Caribbean islands that are nearly all Black and which only have a miniscule White population. However, most of these were White colonies for a long time and long has a solid White core to hold down the ship and keep things moving along.

Haiti has not only lacked a White colonizer for 2 centuries, but for 200 it has not only lacked a White core, but furthermore, has developed completely in the absence of any White civilizational structure to envelope or or even to keep the trains running. Haiti is what you get when you pull all the White people out of a New World Black population and let Black culture take over. The result is a return to Africa. And indeed, in Haiti, African civilizational structures in many forms have carried on to this very day. Haiti is a Black nation that has been “re-Africanized.”

Pull all the Whites out of any New World Black population and over time, a Haiti situation should develop. It may take some time, but that seems to be the inevitable result.

“Back to Africa” or re-Africanization can even occur in the 1st World. In the worst of our inner city Black ghettos, much of the sheen of 350 years of civilizing impulse seems to have weathered away. And indeed, the scariest slums of America nearly resemble the squalor, casual violence, disease, dysfunction, chaos, dilapidated, corrupt, criminalized and insipid modern African nations.

At the same time, during horrific national disasters like Hurricane Katrina with no government response, law stripped bare and society gone anarchic, the civilizational veneer is rapidly stripped off and Africa comes rushing in as sure as those roiling muddy 30-foot killer waves.

In short, long exposure to White civilization has been excellent for New World Blacks. Their health, education, lifestyle, values, and behavior are all dramatically improved by growing up in under the cloak of a White society. Indeed, a White tent over the land may even be good for Black people’s brains at the physical level. Culture is a powerful superstructure that can drastically alter human beings socially and maybe even physically.

Yet in the darkest ghettos or when all Hell breaks loose and the rule of law withers away, even US Blacks can re-Africanize very quickly, even in a matter of days.

The Attitude Towards Fraud Shows the Difference Between a Civilized Country and a Shithole

Actually that kind of sociopathy where locals make fun of idiots is common everywhere. People will cock off to you saying the most rude things, and nobody cares about your side of the story.

Certainly there are many Americans who will ridicule anyone who gets caught in a scam. As a rule, these folks are simply potential victims who have not yet been nailed! In our anti-scammer group, it is more or less a rule that if the person had not been scammed themselves, their attitude was, “How could these people be so stupid?” There were almost no exceptions to this rule. Almost no one who had never been scammed a lot of sympathy for victims. It got to be a real problem in the group that we started making rules saying no attacking victims, etc.

The only people who really showed any sympathy for victims were people who had been nailed themselves. I think this is a basic rule of human nature. I also met quite a few people outside the group who had zero sympathy for the victims, but it was not universal.

And that really is the difference between civilized people and uncivilized barbarians and animals.

The difference between a civilized country full of civilized people and a Turd World shithole full of animals and scumbags is in part due to the feeling people have about scams and fraud.

For instance, the US is very civilized, mostly because its culture is Western and Northern European culture which is extremely hostile to scammers and fraudsters. US prosecutors go after scammers and fraudsters very aggressively. Most DA’s are aggressive in pursuing fraudulent businessmen. They throw these people in jail and prison where they belong all the time.

Also, many Americans think scammers and fraudsters are bottom of the barrel garbage scum. I found that in Nigeria, that attitude was very uncommon. Very few people thought that scammers and fraudsters were scum, and most of them thought they were very admirable people. This is why I think you have whole nations of sociopaths in some parts of the world – their biggest heroes are dirty criminals.

If you go to police in the US as a victim of a fraud or a scam, the officer is not supposed to laugh you out of his office. In fact, most large police departments have specific, well-staffed offices devoted exclusively to fraud. If they laughed all the victims out of the office, they wouldn’t have any work to do.

Lynn Anderson, “Rose Garden”

This topped the country charts in 1970. It’s a great song.

Country music! The only real pure American music is country music.

The Latest Stupid Idea from Lunatic American Gun Culture

Here.

That’s stupid. Now all those idiots getting wounded in gun accidents are going to die instead. Brilliant.

The gun nuts are really like any other conservative. Every single thing a gun nut says is a lie in some way or another, or is at least irrelevant. They have no good arguments about anything, and they never have.

Guy Clark, “Stuff That Works”

This is great music. The genre is said to be straight up country music, but Clark also helped found two genres, progressive country and outlaw country. He also sings in the Texas country and folk genres. Not sure what genre this fine song falls into – I will call it country music because I can’t think of what else to call it.

Country music is interesting in that it really is pure and true 100% American music.

I received that revelation while barreling down Highway 395 through the Owens Valley in Eastern California with a head full of very strong LSD, the dizzying escarpment of the eastern slope of the Sierras on my left, Death Valley on my right. It was the first time in my life that I actually enjoyed country music. After the acid wore off, I was back to hating country music again.

I am now mellowing as I age, and I realize there are some real treasures in there.

The American Sheeple

They are so easy to manipulate!

They are so easy to manipulate!

Wow, manipulating the American sheeple is almost as easy as turning on a light-switch. All they have to do is get the US Free Press (TM) on the side of the latest imperial adventure. That’s never hard to do when 100% of the American media (thank God for “freedom of the press”) lines up with the imperial conspiracy du jour.

Of course, the US Left is pretty much dead. Not only that, but it’s barely even Left anymore. Whenever US imperialism is hatching its latest plot against humanity, it always to get the US “Left” on board. You can always round up folks like this horrifying “anti-fascist” Anton Shekhovtsov and Louis Proyect.

Shekhovtsov is a pro-US imperialist, pro-Ukrainian Nazi, Ukrainian nationalist. What the heck is an antifa Ukrainian nationalist anyway? Isn’t that a contradiction in terms?

Proyect is the awful leader of the Marxmail list, which itself is full of many a “Marxist” useful idiot cheerleading for US imperialism.

Because, you know, the Ukrainian Nazi revolution was a revolution (according to the Trots on Proyect’s blog), and Trots need to support “revolution” everywhere! Even Nazi revolutions, fascist revolutions, fake color revolution conspiracies run by US imperialism, revolutions staged by the CIA using local rightwing proxies of this or that type, no matter – they’re all revolutionaries!

When the US Left starts cheerleading for the machinations of US imperialism in the name of “anti-fascism” or “revolution” or the Bullshit Cause of the Day, the “Left” itself is pretty much of a joke, and it isn’t even Left anymore either. What is it? Who knows? A bunch of irrelevant insane people?

With a Left like that, we may as well say screw it and make alliance with the Right. If rightwing nationalist parties in Europe are supporting the Russian people fighting resisting Nazi exterminationists in East Ukraine, so be it. Rightwing nationalists aren’t exactly optimal, but at least they are fighting US imperialism and opposing the EU/IMF road to serfdom.

We’ll take all the allies we can get. And frankly, I would rather sit down and have a cup of coffee with a rightwing nationalist than some “Leftist” or “antifa” down on the front-lines amid the tracer bullets, fighting the good fight for US imperialism, the EU, the IMF and the neoliberal project in general. In wartime, you don’t make your volunteers take ideology tests. They show up at the recruiting station with a gun, fine, you send them to the front. War is no time for ideological purity tests.

Political Views Are Absorbed by the Young Via Culture

Jason Y writes:

All of right-wingers will claim your liberal or socialist ideas came from college indoctrination. I’ve not seen any proof of that. Most college kids are only interested in making high grades or passing. They don’t really soak in any so called indoctrination.

Generally ,extremists of any sort develop from experiences in childhood or interaction with society. For instance, considering Lenin’s brother was executed, then it’s no wonder Lenin chose his path. Similarly, your typical right wing extremist often holds grudges from the Vietnam era, or maybe some black kid stole his lunch money.

It is possible that some may be radicalized in college, if not by professors then by fellow students. But I have been at universities in the past 35 years, and they were hardly places of radical indoctrination nor were most of the students particularly Leftist. Most of them had no politics at all. Those who encountered the Economics Department often ended up being brainwashed badly into reactionary Friedmanite Chicago School Economics. There are also some real reactionaries in Political Science Departments.

Most stuff comes from childhood though, or from parents. People simply absorb the politics of their family or of the community they grow up in. If you grow up in a rightwing place, you’re a rightwinger. If you grow up in a more liberal place, you might be more liberal. People don’t even make up their own minds. Their cultures make up their minds for them and people simply unthinkingly adopt the beliefs of their families or cultures.

Orwell, Huxley and Two Kinds of Censorship

What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one. Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism.

Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumblepuppy.

As Huxley wrote in Brave New World Revisited, the civil libertarians and rationalists who are ever on the alert to oppose tyranny “failed to take into account man’s almost infinite appetite for distractions.” In 1984 Huxley added, people are controlled by inflicting pain. In Brave New World, they are controlled by inflicting pleasure. In short, Orwell feared that what we hate will ruin us. Huxley feared that what we love will ruin us…This book is about the possibility that Huxley, not Orwell, was right.

Neil Postman Amusing Ourselves to Death

Censorship is all about mind control. On the one hand, you can construct a totalitarian culture based on fear and punishment, and control minds that way. On the other hand, you can endlessly distract people with bullshit and crap (bread and circuses), keep them stupid, shallow and doped-up, and then the powers that be can do whatever the Hell they want to with the country because everyone will be too fat and lazy to care one way or the other. This is an example of a culture that self-censors. Orwell’s world is where the state gives you a lobotomy. In Huxley’s world, we give ourselves lobotomies because they feel so good.

This sound like modern America, or the Idiocracy?

There would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one. Keep them stupid.

They give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism. Fat and lazy pleasure addicted couch potatoes.

The truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Distract the people endlessly with trivia, then do whatever you want behind the scenes and people will be too distracted to care.

Create a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumblepuppy. Bread and circuses, the self-censoring lobotomy street drug, the best high of them all.

they are controlled by inflicting pleasure. Keep people doped up on whatever and then those that run society can do whatever they want and people will be too high to notice.

A culture in which that which we love will ruin us. Suicidal ignorance by hedonism.

Americans Haven’t Changed One Bit

From the great book, Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America, 1840. As you can see, here it is, 170 years later, and we haven’t changed one bit. We are just as sheeplike, grasping, conformist, warmongering and intellectually monocultural as ever.

I guess we are basically hopeless.

You know, the Brainwash Media really has a lot to do with it. I know a lot of educated people whose view of US foreign policy is simply whatever the media is promoting at that time, and the US media is remarkably uniform when it comes to US foreign policy. US foreign policy is always rightwing under either Democrats or Republicans, yet nearly every liberal I have ever known supports US rightwing foreign policy to the hilt. Why? I assume they must be utterly brainwashed. Even on domestic policy, most liberals I know formulate their opinions from the media, including rightwing magazines like Time and Newsweek, which most liberals consider to the be “liberal publications.”

There really is not a whole lot of diversity of opinion on either US domestic or especially foreign policy in the US. There is a narrow band of acceptable opinion, and anyone who steps outside of that is treated like a lunatic, someone who speaks a foreign language, or a pariah. I know because I have been outside of this idiotic narrow window most of my life.

Guess who sets up that narrow window? You guessed it – the media.

I am able to do this because I do not care about being ostracized and I usually do not believe the lying US media. Anything the US media tells me, I make sure to go and check it out against independent sources before I believe it. Most people do not have the time or inclination to do that.

When you think of it, a country with only a narrow band of acceptable opinion is basically an intellectually totalitarian country.

In the United States, the majority undertakes to supply a multitude of ready-made opinions for the use of individuals, who are thus relieved from the necessity of forming opinions of their own.

As one digs deeper into the national character of the Americans, one sees that they have sought the value of everything in this world only in the answer to this single question: how much money will it bring in?

In other words, a democratic government is the only one in which those who vote for a tax can escape the obligation to pay it.

All those who seek to destroy the liberties of a democratic nation ought to know that war is the surest and shortest means to accomplish it.

I know of no country in which there is so little independence of mind and real freedom of discussion as in America.
