How Many Blacks Are Part of Ghetto Culture?

Jm8: It could perhaps be, in part, that Black (and South Asian) children’s scores rise as they get older and thus become more assimilated into mainstream British culture. In the US, many Blacks never really or fully assimilate into the mainstream culture, but remain ghettoized/maintain a ghettoized culture, culturally if not geographically/physically.

~50% of Blacks Seem To Be Part of Ghetto / Rap Culture

Yep. A lot of Blacks are part of ghetto / rap type culture. Looking at the ones on Hi5, I would say that 50% of the Black women of all ages on there are caught up in ghetto/rap culture.

And some of the ones who seem like they are not are actually deep into it. A young woman and I clicked like on each other. She gave me her #. I called it and some ghetto guy answered and gave her the phone. She lived in Inglewatts, I mean Inglewood. She was a whore. She wanted to charge me $100 to fuck her.

Her photo was the most charming, sweet, darling, little Miss Princess photo with those Snapchat dog ears on it. I could have sworn she was completely outside of that bullshit culture. Instead she was dead in the middle of it.

Ghetto Culture Is Not the Only Black Culture

Alpha said that ghetto culture is not the only Black culture. The thing is that’s the only Black culture that I know of.

But then I met a woman from the South on Hi5, a Black woman. She was from a small town in North Carolina. She had a lot of photos. Every person in her photos was Black. It’s hard to tell by photos, but everyone in the photos seemed like a pretty good person.

But this was not ghetto culture. I’m not sure what it was, but it was definitely a Black culture. I am not sure I would want to be a part of it because everyone was Black. It had a heavy dose of Protestant religion. The woman was a very good person, happy and optimistic. I’ve never really seen a Black culture like this, but I have heard that there is a culture like this in small towns in the South. It’s actually not a bad culture at all, and it’s Black as night.

One wonders if the Black professionals who went to Obama’s church (Reverend Wright) in Chicago would be part of a Black culture? Do they really act that much different from White people though? Do they really have a separate culture? I can see how it would be different in some respects, but not greatly.

Are the wealthy Blacks in Baldwin Hills, Ladera Heights, etc. part of a Black culture? Do they mostly associate with other Blacks? I think some of them might be part of a Black culture.

I met a woman on a dating site recently. She was a Black businesswoman / singer / entertainer from LA who had some money. She seemed to be part of a Black culture. She was very involved with Tina Turner going back decades and apparently used to tour with her, including to Europe. It seemed like most of the people around Turner were Black. I suppose you could call that a Black culture. It was not a lot different from White culture, but it was different in some ways.

If Black people mostly hang out with other Blacks, is that a Black culture de facto?

What Is the Meaning of Blacks Closing the Achievement Gap in the UK?

Tulio: So then the race IQ gap is environmental then?

Well, I don’t know. Chuck at The Inductivist now says it is, and he is fighting with a bunch of hereditarians about that. And Chuck was originally a hereditarian.

The achievement gap may well be environmental if the British Blacks closed it. They say the achievement tests are a proxy for IQ, but they are not a perfect proxy, maybe .7 correlation. It might be interesting to see recent IQ tests.

in the case of British Black children, yes, their IQ’s beat White children at age 5 incredibly enough, but they crash back down to 86 when those children reach adulthood. A similar thing is happening in the US, where Black children now have an IQ of 90.5, but their IQ crashes back down to ~85 by adulthood.

There are a lot of theories about why this is happening, but one of the most depressing is that environmental effects are most prominent in youth, and that in adulthood, the genes start to kick in, and environmental effects fade into the background.

If we could close the achievement gap in the US like they did in the UK, it would be an awesome thing indeed. It would be one of the greatest achievements for Black Americans since the First or Second Liberations (Civil War and Civil Rights Act).

However, Black children in both the UK and the US are getting a lot smarter, and both cohorts are significantly closing the B-W IQ gap at least in childhood. I think smarter Black kids is a good thing in a lot of ways. You can sit back and count the ways that this is a good thing, but I think we both agree that it’s a huge positive.

The Left Wing of the Democratic Party – Where Progressive Policy Goes to Die

Indra Varuna: Hey Robert! Off topic but you think of Vox? (the progressive website and not Voxday)

It’s look like a Democrat mouthpiece, they published a article against Venezuela and another that Israel shouldn’t be boycotted, but they’re progressive in almost everything.

I don’t know Vox very well. I think they are probably OK, but I don’t read them that much. I think the last I read there was a debate on the B-W IQ gap between Ezra Klein and Sam Harris. Pretty much a waste of a two-hour podcast. They’re probably pretty awful on Cultural Left stuff.

Vox is really just the bullshit Democratic Party, in particular the left wing of the Democratic Party, which is still shit in my opinion.

Go to Daily Kos sometime. Sign up for an account. I have a lifetime ban on Daily Kos for “anti-Semitism.” Really I just attacked the Israeli cancer that is metastasizing in Palestine.

Some Kossack wrote an article attacking Syria from a BS POV and I asked, “What’s the capital of your country, Tel Aviv?” I basically said, “You are not an American. You are just another dual loyalty / agent of a foreign power / dual citizen type.” Well the Kossacks flipped out, called me a ‘virulent anti-Semite” and permabanned me.

If you want to understand the cowardly and craven left wing of this pathetic party, go to Daily Kos and read around.

In a nutshell:

DK is split on Israel, but most Kossacks love Israel. However, a minority of Kossacks have had it up to here with the Israeli infestation and attack them ferociously. Kos put in a directive that all debate on the subject of Israel is banned. I suppose that is where it is now. Not catastrophic but not real great either.

The real problem is that Daily Kos is really (((Daily Kos))). Like most other entities in American life, Daily Kos is Jewed to the hilt. 60% of the Democratic Party’s money is Jewish money, and most of it comes with pro-Israeli strings attached.

You don’t read much about Venezuela on Daily Kos, but what you do read is pretty bad. I read one article that was pro-Venezuela, but the commenters were all bitterly against the piece, and one said it should be flagged and banned as opposing some Kos policy. In other words, if you support Venezuela, you are violating Daily Kos policy.

Keep in mind that even Sanders was horrific on Venezuela. He called Chavez a “Communist dictator.”

The truth is that the Left is the US is pretty much crap. The actual Left in the US is usually pretty OK, but the majority of the Left in the US are these maggots called “liberal Democrats” who are distinguished by the fact that there is almost nothing progressive about them.

The US Democratic Party has long been pretty good on domestic policy, but they have always been horrifically reactionary on foreign policy. Even my late father, a proud ADA Democrat, was a Cold War Democrat who was horribly reactionary on foreign policy. Also, since he had been in the Marines, he believed that the US military could absolutely do no wrong, and he supported the US military to the hilt no matter who they were bombing, shooting, killing and slaughtering at the moment. It didn’t matter. They were always right. You could not oppose the US military in his presence. He would almost threaten to hit you. It was that bad.

Bottom line is the US is pretty hopeless. There’s no real Left in the country, and the Democratic Party is pathetically reactionary on foreign policy. The very idea that liberal Democrats are are even leftwing in any way is pretty risible.

Blacks Close the Achievement Gap in the UK

Ranting Patriarch: Where are you getting the idea that the black HS achievement gap is closed in Britain? That is a place where just being accused of racism lands you permanently on a police watch-list. You better believe they are cooking the books on black test scores, it could be criminally prosecuted to reflect / demonstrate / point-out any disparity.

Except that those achievement test scores along with IQ test studies have been showing the typical gaps in the UK forever now and no one has gone to jail for reporting the facts. Schools have been dutifully reporting on this gap year in and year out and it become a regular topic of discussion over there.

That’s a well established fact for a few years now and there’s been a lively debate on this all over the HBDsphere.

Check out Chuck at The Inductivist’s blog. He held that the B-W gap was genetic until the British scores came out. Then he changed completely and said it was no longer completely genetic because he said there was no reason for the British results other than environment. The hereditarians said that the British scores were anomalous and that they hardly contradicted countless studies showing a gap.

The achievement tests could be seen as proxies for IQ test results. I have not seen any IQ test results out of the UK that show a closing of the gap. However, one could argue that IQ tests are irrelevant and we should just go with achievement test results because the latter have shown to predict occupational success very well.

By the way, British children have even substantially closed the IQ gap by .4 SD.

And the youngest British Black children are even beating British Whites:

                 IQ at age 5

British Whites   100

British Blacks   106

Isn’t that amazing? However, upon hearing this, my mother said, “Ok, they’re smarter, but are they committing any less crime?” The sad answer is that in some ways, yes British Blacks are just as smart as British Whites right now, but the Blacks are still committing quite a bit of crime. Whether the rate went down with the achievement rise is not known. I suppose a cynic might say, “Great. We just a whole group of smarter criminals!”

Nevertheless, in the US, Black-White crime differentials are mediated by IQ. For instance, holding IQ constant at 113, Blacks have the exact same crime rate as Whites. One wonders why this is. If the crime tendency is genetic:

  • Do these brighter high normal Blacks have less genetic loading for criminogeneticity?
  • Or
  • Do they have the exact same loading except that once IQ gets high enough, it “overwhelms” criminogenic tendencies with various inhibitory, etc. factors that “ride along” remora-like with increased intelligence?

I favor the latter explanation. I honestly think that with increased Black intelligence, a lot of the Black problems discussed in the previous posts would lesson. Increasing intelligence tends to fix all sorts of problems, especially the ones discussed in that post.

One could argue that rising Black IQ would be paralleled by rising White IQ, and now you have an arms race that ends up with the same gap. As the saying goes, “If there’s a tiger chasing me, I don’t have to outrun the tiger. I just have to outrun you.”

On the other hand, even if a gap remained, a smarter Black cohort here and across the globe should ameliorate a lot of Black issues. I think that might especially be true in Africa. If we could raise African IQ by 1 SD, I think they would be able to deal with their issues so much better, and the continent would not be as much of a clusterfuck as it is now. 70 IQ Black Africa looks like a runaway train racing into a dark tunnel to a deadly crash ahead where the light fades out.

The Myth of the Liberal Looneyland Called California

Even though this state has a reputation for being some liberal-Left Commie nightmare state, I actually live here in California, and almost everyone I meet is some species of conservative. Almost everyone you meet who has an actual ideological political opinion will be a Trumpist ideological conservative.

There’s no such thing as a White liberal in this area. There are some White liberal Democrats in the mountains, but they’re not very liberal. I am not sure that is what red-staters think of when they think of liberal loonies, but your typical California liberal Democrat isn’t even very liberal, much less a liberal loony. They’re about as liberal as Obama or Hillary. In other words, they’re practically Republicans.

Where I live, those who are liberal tend to be depoliticized Hispanics who vote Democrat out of habit without even knowing what it stands for. If you try to engage them on any type of political conversation, you will soon be lost because they have no knowledge of US politics.

The Blacks vote Democrat out of habit and are actually more politically intelligent than Hispanics despite having lower IQ’s, which is interesting. However, even they do not seem to know much about US politics.

The only people politically savvy enough to have political conversations with around here are Trumpist Republicans, and there are many of them. Even in this town, I would guess that most Whites are Trumpist Republicans.

The Sierra Nevada from the foothills on up is 100% White and 100% Trumpist Republican.

Most of the places I have lived in California over my lifetime have been very White and profoundly conservative.

The idea that California is some sort of leftwing loony bin is much mistaken. The Whites here in California have long been extremely conservative. This state birthed the monstrosity called Ronald Reagan after all.

And this year, but the very first time in decades, a majority of California Whites voted for a Democratic President. California Whites have been voting for Republicans for President, Congress, Legislature, State Senate and all other offices for decades now.

The liberal loony California tends to be mostly in the Bay Area.

LA is a lot less liberal, and when I lived there, most people around me were hardcore conservatives, even when I left in 1990. I’m not sure what LA is like now, but political charts show that LA is far more conservative than the Bay Area.

Orange County has always been the most conservative part of the state. In fact, it was always one of the most conservative parts of the entire US. It is starting to go over lately, but the process will be slow, and it is still quite conservative here in a lot of the county.

The Inland Empire of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties has always been deeply conservative, with a reputation for being made up of violent ultra-patriotic gun-wielding, pickup truck driving, liberal-ass-kicking White working class bikers and rednecks. I have a feeling this might be changing, but I don’t have any good figures. I spent a lot of time in many of these cities in the late 1980’s, and it was still deeply conservative at that time.

The High Desert has always been quite conservative. It is starting to go over, but it is still mostly conservative. This has the same violent redneck population as the Inland Empire with an even more government-hating tinge to it.

San Diego has been a deeply conservative Navy town forever. In recent years, it has started to go over. However, many of the wealthier and heavily White beach towns to the north are still very conservative.

The Central Coast is more conservative than LA and less so than the Bay Area. Even in on the Central Coast, there are many wildly conservative people.

The Central Valley is the most rightwing part of California. Most of the Whites here are indistinguishable from Whites you would meet in Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas, or Indiana.

The North Coast is a mixed bag. The North Bay up to Napa and Santa Rosa is not a lot different from the Bay Area.

Sacramento is about the same as the North Coast, but there are many profoundly conservative people in that city.

The Sacramento Valley is as conservative as the San Joaquin Valley if not much worse. But nobody much lives there.

The North Coast is incredibly conservative mixed with liberal to out and out Leftist. Mostly the conservatives are in power, but the city council of Eureka recently went hard left. But for the most part, nobody really lives there.

The mountains of North Central and Northeastern California are the most conservative part of the state. Cowboys, cows, ranchers, rednecks, loggers, 4 wheel drives, extreme Protestantism, guns, and government hatred are everywhere, and you might as well be in Wyoming or Idaho. In fact, a lot of this part of the state actually looks like the Intermountain or Great Basin West, so you could be excused for thinking you were actually in one of those states. This sad tendency is leavened by the fact that hardly anybody lives here.

The Truth is Racist: John Kelly Attacked as a Racist for Telling the Truth

The SJW Culture (face it, SJW’s control our entire culture now) is ripping General John Kelley to pieces for telling the truth about immigrants in an interview with NPR. When asked about Jeff Sessions’ hard-line anti-immigrant policy by NPR, Kelly said:

“Many illegal immigrants are not bad people…but they’re also not people that would easily assimilate into the United States. They’re overwhelmingly rural people. In the countries they come from, fourth-, fifth-, sixth-grade educations are kind of the norm. They don’t speak English, obviously that’s a big thing. They don’t integrate well; they don’t have skills.”

Let’s take this apart one by one here:

“Illegal immigrants are not the type of people who would easily assimilate into the US.”

That is simply flat out true. At the very least, it is perfectly rational opinion. The other opinion, that they are the type of people who easily integrate into the US, is the one that needs to prove their point as there seems to be little evidence that this is true. I live with these people. They are all around me. They brought Mexico here with them. They never left home. Their children are a lot more Americanized, but the immigrants themselves are not assimilated at all and have no desire to assimilate. They live in communities where everyone speaks Spanish and follows a Mexican culture little different from Mexico’s, so there’s no need to assimilate anyway.

They’re overwhelmingly rural people. In the countries they come from, fourth-, fifth-, sixth-grade educations are kind of the norm.

100% fact. That’s a factual statement. How can a factual statement be racist?

We are importing vast numbers of essentially uneducated peasants from the 3rd World. Why anyone thinks this is a good idea or how these people will be a net benefit to our country to any way is simply beyond me. A 1st World country has no sensible reason to import vast numbers of rural 3rd World peasants with a 5th grade education into their country. Why the vast majority of the media culture in the US think this is a good idea is beyond me.

Why the US Working Class Is Not Radicalized

Radicalized meaning having any sort of working class or class consciousness at all. Radicalized meaning pro-worker. Yes, believe it or not, the US working class is not even pro-worker. The US working class is actually anti-worker!

The problem is that we do not have a tradition of working class radicalism here as in Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Haiti, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina. Working class people in all of those countries are radicalized and pro-worker with a high state of class consciousness and they usually vote for pro-worker political parties.

Mexicans, however, are profoundly depoliticized.

Nevertheless, you can argue as my mother does when I asked her why the Central American revolutions were not spreading to Mexico, to which she responded that “The Mexicans already had their revolution.” And though the Left neglects to see it this way, the Mexican Revolution was definitely one of the great leftwing revolutions of the 20th Century, at least as good as the Russian Revolution and without many of the problems. Most people don’t realize how horrible feudal life was in Mexico before the Mexican Revolution. If I told you what it was like, you would quit reading and call me a liar. It was that bad.

In Latin America, your average proletarian, working class person, who, let’s face it, is not real smart, is often ideologically Leftist, as they have been politicized by powerful leftwing movements. There are no powerful leftwing movements in the US to do this, so the non-White working classes are not radicalized. They are liberalized but not radicalized.

The White working classes are actually ideologically Rightist, which makes no sense at all of course.

However, I have met many Salvadorans here. I tell them that I used to support the FMLN revolutionaries down there and that I even used to contribute to their weapons fund. It’s actually true. I would meet a guy in a sleazy Salvadoran bar in Lafayette Park and give him a check to some weird cryptic organization. They are hesitant at first but then they break into wide smiles. Even those who did not support the FMLN don’t really care that I did. That movement was radical Left but had huge support across society because Salvadoran society is very unfair.

Mexicans, a Portrait of a Depoliticized People

Mexicans in their own country and in the US are profoundly depoliticized and do not know their ass from a hole in the ground politically, for which I blame that awful fake revolutionary party in power for decades. It is true that the party preserved many good progressive structures, but they didn’t go further from that.

It’s hard to call yourselves a revolutionary party in a land where many people complete only 2nd-5th grade education.

I meet Mexicans like this all the time aged 20-40. Some told me that their kids never went to school past 5th grade. It costs money to go to school down there, and many people cannot afford it, so their kids only get a few years’ schooling. This is happening to this very day. Many rural schools are defunded and have no money to pay teachers, so many students drop out in the 2nd grade or so to go work out in the fields.

Sound like a revolutionary party?

Yes, there is free medical care and it is decent enough. You might have to wait in line all day, but you will still get in, and they will treat you. As with everything else, it is horribly defunded.

Sound like a revolutionary party?

28% of Mexican sewage flows into rivers untreated.

Sound like a revolutionary party?

The ejido system brought by the Mexican Revolution is great and has prevented another revolution, but it was never properly funded. Most land in Mexico is owned by the state and divided into ejidos. Anyone who cannot make a living in the cities can always go to some ejido and join as a worker and work the land. At least you will end up with enough food to eat. However, some recent administrations have started to privatize the ejido system, which will be catastrophic for Mexicans.

The oil company remains nationalized, a source of pride for most Mexicans. I remember gas was damn cheap down there. There was only one type of gas station, but they sure sold gas cheap. However, there have been recent moves to privatize the oil company, which have run in to a lot of opposition. I believe it was privatized under Benito Juarez.

 

Because I am a provocateur, I like to mess around with the local Mexicans and tell them I am a radical. I flat out tell them that I am a Communist and a revolutionary. They often look a bit puzzled, but they are not angry. They often seem curious and seem to think that I am on their side. Then I make a fist and say “Revolution! Benito Juarez! Pancho Villa! Emilio Zapata!”

Everyone is very happy and cheers me on. These are the heroes of the Mexican Revolution and afterwards and frankly, all of them were out and out Leftists. So the heroes of the Mexican working class for almost a century have been full blown Leftists. I would say there is a lot of underground and unconscious support for Leftism among working class Mexicans and of course Salvadorans. Mexicans simply had their revolutionary spirit co-opted by that fake revolutionary party which started out with great motives but got very corrupted and bureaucratized over time

Whites Are Only Decent and Progressive When They Are a Majority

Answered on Quora.

Jason: Anyway, what I meant to say is that SA whites being richer were jerks out of fear of safety – and also the richer behave that way everywhere else – regardless of whatever race they’re in.

But South African whites, to be honest, got on the bad side of the liberal community – especially, cause their social system was race based. In other words, they could have done the same thing by just hiding into rich neighborhoods, like California people do now. In other words, California is just as racist as South Africa – in a sense – cause the poor are kept out of richer areas “unofficially” via crime laws.

I agree with you that the middle classes and rich act like shits pretty much everywhere on Earth, but here in California, we do have some decent middle class and rich people, at least in some areas, particularly on the coast. I am thinking of the Bay Area in particular. Those are probably some of the best-behaved middle and upper class Whites outside of Europe.

Also rich and middle class Whites act pretty good in all of Europe (except the UK), Australia, New Zealand, and Canada.

The problem is that in most places on Earth where Whites become a minority, they turn into the worst fascist fucks on Earth. A process that is presently unfolding here in the US.

Face facts. White people only act decent when they are in the majority. When they are a minority, get ready for fascism, genocide, death squads, etc.

Show me anywhere on Earth where a White minority acts decently at all, except California and Hawaii.

Honestly though, the Chinese do not act much differently. Chinese in China and Taiwan act pretty good, but the Chinese minorities in the Philippines and Indonesia are complete monsters, especially the ones in the Philippines.

Can you show me how the Whites in California are just as racist as South African Whites? Can you show me how Whites in California keep Blacks and Browns, or poor people in general, out of White areas?
