Is a Race War Occurring?

RaceWarby Taleeb Starkes  11/3/13
Dr. Thomas Sowell, the intellectual juggernaut, recently concluded that a Black and White race war is in effect.  He stated, “Initial skirmishes in that race war have already begun, and have in fact been going on for some years. But public officials pretend that it is not happening, and the mainstream media seldom publish it at all, except in ways that conceal what is really taking place.”

The People’s ColonelAllen West, echoed Dr. Sowell’s sentiment and further added, “We were supposed to be living in a post-racial America since we elected the first ‘African-American’ president.  That’s hardly the case.”[pullquote]The People’s Colonel, Allen West, echoed Dr. Sowell’s sentiment and further added, “We were supposed to be living in a post-racial America since we elected the first ‘African-American’ president.  That’s hardly the case.”[/pullquote]

Even though these gentlemen are demonized in the black community for not being Grievance Industry members or stockholders, I respect them tremendously.  They are straight-shooting realists and, as black men, understand that racial solidarity shouldn’t supersede critical thinking.  Moreover, Sowell and West want to do what’s right for America instead of what’s best for a few Americans.

Despite my admiration, I disagree with their assessment that the continued black-on-white violence indicates a present or future race war.  A race war requires at least two engaging races, whereas the reoccurring black-white intra-racial violence is overwhelmingly one-sided (black).  Seemingly, since the Zimmerman acquittal, this lopsided dynamic of blacks attacking whites has become more noticeable.  The latest victim was an 87-year-old WWII veteran who was fatally assaulted not long ago and robbed in his driveway by four black teens.

Still, I maintain that it’s not a race war.

It’s payback.

This payback is encouraged by the victimization mindset that’s deeply rooted in the black community.  Analogous to Critical Race Theory, which is taught in many schools, this mindset instills the notion of racism being so pervasive that no amount of individual effort can overcome it.  Additionally, whites are branded as universal oppressors who consistently use institutionalized racism as a weapon of mass (black) destruction.  Thus, any black-on-white offense is regarded as payback for white persecution, and the crime may even be excused as PTSD (Post-Traumatic Slavery Disorder).

Actor Jamie Foxx exemplified this mindset while promoting his movie (Django Unchained).  He joyously proclaimed, “I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that? And how black is that?”  Imagine a white actor saying, “I get to whip black people in the movie. How great is that?”[pullquote]This payback is encouraged by the victimization mindset that’s deeply rooted in the black community.  Analogous to Critical Race Theory, which is taught in many schools, this mindset instills the notion of racism being so pervasive that no amount of individual effort can overcome it. [/pullquote]

Even the white liberals who proudly display their “Hope & Change” bumper stickers and “Justice for Trayvon” sympathies can’t escape the perception that whites are inherently racist.  In fact, white liberals are viewed as whites who simply internalize their racism, whereas white conservatives are considered shamelessly racist.  Either way, the victimization mentality emphasizes that “good and bad” whites are simply opposite sides of the same racist coin.

Naturally, the black-on-white paybacks rarely receive condemnation from the black community, black press, Oval Office, or grievance gurus.  Any form of denunciation will quickly lead to the questioning of one’s “blackness.”

Undoubtedly, white resistance is surfacing.  I believe that this observation sparked Dr. Sowell’s article.  However, this mounting white backlash isn’t a violent endeavor; it’s an awareness campaign and shedding of white guilt.

The timely book White Girl Bleed A Lot’: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It, which was referenced by Sowell and West, correctly categorized this phenomenon as racial violence.  Author Colin Flaherty documents hundreds of violent episodes along with the mainstream media’s deliberate silence.

I’m not surprised that the mainstream media conveniently overlooks this pattern of racial violence.  After all, it conflicts with their portrayal of blacks as permanent victims who are incapable of being aggressors against whites.  Once again, the mainstream media is spitting at the public and reporting it as rain.

Dr. Sowell said that he was appreciative that old age may spare him from seeing a race war.  I say, enjoy the remainder of your earthly time, because there is not and will not be a race war.  Besides, a 63% white population versus a 13% Black population would be more of a slaughter than a war.

Hopefully, Dr. Sowell lives long enough to see Allen West run on a presidential ticket.

    I wouldn’t say that we’re in anything like a race war because MOST blacks don’t actually take part in the violence, and a large number still oppose it. This is a point Ann Coulter made in Mugged (though I think she was a bit over-optimistic about the numbers), and it seems still to be true even after the Zimmerman trial. Note too that most victims of black violence are still their fellow blacks (and many others are Asian or Hispanic). There is a major anti-white element in the black community, aided and abetted by white liberal elites, and the possibility that this could lead to a genuine race war can’t be ruled out. But we’re a long way from it, and it’s not even remotely inevitable.

      I haven’t yet read Mr. Starkes’ book. But my own thought is that the ground has been laid perfectly for an all-out race assault by blacks on whites. The match that is required for this to become widespread is a severe economic downturn, which is all but inevitable now. Such a downturn would tend to strip (or devalue via inflation) entitlements from the entitled.

      You may have a point, Tim, that most blacks won’t take part. But that’s a bit like saying that most Muslims don’t take part in Islamic violence. The point is, do they oppose it on the grassroots level? Do those who won’t take part in violence actually let this caustic mindset slide in others? I venture to guess that most do. I venture to guess that most mainstream blacks view white people with enough suspicion that they do not produce the kind of social inertial or resistance to the caustic anti-white black views that are out there and certainly under-reported.

      That said, there is some hope. The black people I know do not seem to have this attitude. But then, I don’t tend to hang around liberals. And it is liberalism itself (along with stupid white liberals) who feed this entire grievance machine.

      I suspect I’m okay where I am should violence break out. I live more on the periphery. The irony is that my liberal friends and family members likely won’t be okay because they live in large urban liberal areas such as Seattle. And we have seen what the anarchic Left looks like several times there, including the WTO riots of a few years ago. It won’t just be blacks. It will be their grievance-based brothers and sister anarchists, Leftists, and other thugs.

      Surely this is why Mr. Starkes’ book is titled “Blacks vs. N-words.” It’s a realization that it is civilization and reason itself against thuggery that we are dealing with. And that, in my opinion, is something that crosses race lines, as Theodore Dalrymple in his many boosk has so expertly noted about whites who are in the same position of blacks in England on the liberal plantation.

    I’ve been informed that more of Mr. Starkes’ work can be found at The Black Sphere, which I’ll also stick in my blogroll to the right (aka “Links”).

    Colin Flaherty was good enough to e-mail me after I did an article featuring his book, “White Girl Bleed A lot.” He was on the receiving end of so much hate and fan mail following its publication. There is undoubtedly a PC conspiracy to downplay black on white crime that reaches down into police departments, city councils, and in media news boardrooms. I’ll try and dig out that piece………

      I’d like to read one of those two books in order to review it and spread the word. I don’t do “diversity.” But we should do all that we can to support our black brothers and sisters who are fighting the good fight and take a lot of grief for doing so—more than most of us can imagine. These are some brave people.

      • Timothy Lane says:

        As I mentioned in my review of Mugged, this is a point that Coulter makes as well, and even provides names of people who deserve to be far better remembered than do vermin like Jesse the Jetstream (as Mike Royko once called Jesse Jackson).
