Worse Financial Crisis than in 2008: The notion of White Privilege is one of the most absurd fantasies in human history paul craig roberts

The notion of White Privilege is one of the most absurd fantasies in human history

 

February is the month we celebrate Black Heritage Month.  Try celebrating White Heritage. 

It would be declared an insurrection, and instantly the FBI would be on the scene rounding up white supremacists and domestic terrorists.

White heritage has been characterized as racism, and racism is something to be ashamed of, not celebrated.

“People don’t realize how hard it is to speak the truth to people who don’t realize they are living a lie.” — Edward Snowden, writes Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, chairman of The Institute for Political Economy, former editor of the Wall Street Journal, and an author of many books.

Universities and public schools have taught white students for years that they, their parents, and all forebears are racists who enslaved and oppressed black people. Some cities and states in the US have reparation committees deciding how much money people who have never owned a slave have to pay people who have never been a slave, many of whom don’t even know who their parents are.

White Privilege: After years of indoctrination by Critical Race Theory many white Americans accept that they are the guilty descendants of slave traders.

The truth is that the black slave trade originated in black Africa in slave wars between black peoples.  Blacks enslaved blacks. The British colonists were merely customers who needed a labor force.  The blacks brought to the colonies were enslaved prior to their arrival.

The White Slave Trade is far older, was far more extensive, and was contemporaneous with the black slave trade and lasted longer. But we don’t hear arguments about white people being held back from being placed in bondage.

But as Edward Snowden says, don’t try to tell truth to people brainwashed into The Matrix.

White Privilege is one of the most absurd fantasies in human history: The notion of white privilege is one of the most absurd fantasies in human history.  Do the people making the claim that bondage has permanently injured black American descendants of slavery–but refuse to make the same argument for white descendants of slavery–realize that they are saying that blacks are weaker and less resilient than white people?

Do they understand that slave wars were endemic in parts of Africa and that the implication of their argument is that the huge numbers of Africans who are descendants of slaves captured in those centuries-long wars must also be permanently damaged and there are no white people to blame it on?

Today in the US more than half of all black children grow up with a female parent and no father present.  It is this, not slavery of 168 years ago, that holds back blacks.

Many years ago Democrat Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan pointed out that it was the white liberal Democrats’ welfare policies that destroyed the black family.

What is going to bring about equality between the races are the feminists who are destroying the white family.  Already 18 percent of white kids grow up with one parent.

Ask yourself how it is possible that there are professors in elite universities such as Harvard paid six figure salaries to teach the lie that white racism is responsible for black under performance.

Do these ignorant fools, and the equally ignorant administrations, trustees, and donors, understand that they are institutionalizing racial hatred in a multicultural society?  They are breeding violence, not comity.  And they celebrate it !

For more than a half century black Americans have had in law legal privileges that convey preferment over white people.

White Privilege absurd: Black Americans have privileged entry into universities, employment, and promotion.  These privileges have expanded with time. University admission requirements for blacks are lower than for whites.  White liberal professors once complained that this was a privilege given to sons of alumni, but they don’t mind the privilege being given to blacks.

Blacks have acquired certain protections in law that are denied to white people. For example, blacks can be victims of hate speech and hate crimes, but they can’t be accused of committing the same.

White employees of corporations, government, schools, universities, hospitals, military have to take sensitivity training so that they show proper deference to blacks as the lower orders in Europe were trained to show toward the aristocracy.

Some jurisdictions permit blacks to steal amounts up to $950 without it being a felony.  There is an ever widening range of  activities illegal for white people, such as looting and burning business districts, for which blacks are released from accountability.

This is a factual description of a black aristocracy and a white peasantry.

The privileges that blacks enjoy are a total violation of the US Constitution, the 14th Amendment, and the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

The 1964 Civil Rights Act explicitly forbids in statutory language racial quotas and preferences. The Act gave no authorization for racial balance in schools or work force. The Act explicitly states that employers are not required “to grant preferential treatment to any individual or group on account of any imbalance that might exist” in percentage or number of “race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.”

The Act also took no exception to qualification tests for employment and promotion purposes as long as they were not a ruse to weed out people on the basis of race, sex, or religion.

All the Act said is that a qualified person who meets the university’s or employer’s standards cannot be rejected for reasons of race, sex, or religion.

This act of Congress was quickly stood on its head by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).  The Jewish EEOC Compliance Chief, Alfred W. Blumrosen, saw the opportunity to misuse the Act to revolutionize society.

He reasoned, correctly it turned out, that he could completely ignore the statutory language of the law, because the expansion of regulatory agencies in the 1930s had resulted in federal courts deferring to the regulatory agencies how laws passed by Congress should be implemented.

Blumrosen immediately established a system of privileges in regulatory law for blacks.  Congress did nothing.  Federal courts ratified the quota regime and expanded its preferences decade after decade.

I told this story in my book, The New Color Line (Regnery, 1995).  The publisher, Henry Regnery said that my book was the most important book his firm established in 1947 had ever published.

The book cover was decorated with highly supportive endorsements by neoconservative Irving Kristol, conservative Judge Robert Bork, and Liberal Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz.  If memory serves, the book received favorable reviews everywhere, including the New York Times.

The stage was set to stop Blumrosen’s undermining of equality under the law and a merit-based order and to prevent the institutionalization of racial privilege justified as a reparation for white racism, a justification that has fomented racial hatred in a multicultural society.

And suddenly Regnery dropped the book.  No advertising campaign. No book store appearances (there still were book stores in those days), no appearances before university audiences.   I have always wondered if the powers-that-be got hold of Regnery and told him that there was to be no interference with the agenda Blumrosen had put in place.

Perhaps this year, 59 years after the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the US Supreme Count will be forced by the Harvard and University of North Carolina cases to address the question whether racial privileges in university admissions are constitutional.

White Privilege is one of the most absurd fantasies in human history: If the Court is guided by the Constitution, the Justices will strike down the racial privileges that are the basis for university admissions and this will eventually spread throughout the systems of employment and promotion privileges.

In order to rule in compliance with the Constitution, the Justices must be willing to accept denunciations of the Supreme Court as a racist institution of white privilege by woke freaks, white liberals, black advocacy groups, the Democrat Party, and presstitutes led by the New York Times and its 1619 Project.  Antifa and Black Lives Matter will camp on the Justices front lawns screaming insults and threats.

The Justices might be intimidated, knowing that the Democrats, media, and woke universities and law schools will denounce them, and find a way to leave the problem festering as has been the case for 59 years.

Privilege’s triumph over the US Constitution is a great victory for those determined to overthrow a merit-based order.  The racial privileges that blacks have been given are so throughly institutionalized that it would be very difficult to rip them out and return to equality under the law.  Generally speaking, civilizations that try to rollback their decline don’t succeed.

Not even Cicero, consul and proconsul of Rome, named “father of the country” by the Roman Senate, could save Rome, and we have no Cicero.

The problem for constitutional rule is that no American social institution any longer believes in it. Neither the law schools and bar associations, medical schools and associations, universities, public schools, media, nor the two political parties  any longer believe in a merit-based society based on equality under the law.

Equality under the law has been replaced by equality of result and the resurrection of privilege in order to achieve it.

This means also the loss of freedom, because equality of result requires coercion.  It also requires erasing the culture and achievements of a merit-based society as is happening in museums, the rewriting of history, and the removal of public memorials and statues.  It also requires the substitution of false narratives for truth, with the end result being that the people live a lie.

Martin Gurri in the Winter 2022 issue of City Journal tells us that the US Constitution is in such disrepute that “the National Archives in Washington, D.C., today places warning labels on the Constitution, because reading it may induce unpleasant sensations in some identity groups.”

There you have it.  The anti-white left and the New York Times’ 1619 Project have succeeded in branding the US Constitution a racist document written to serve white supremacy.  Law schools and bar associations now think this way as do many judges appointed by Democrats.

What this means is that the willingness to enforce the Constitution and to live under it is evaporating.

What is the future of America, a country where white people have been deracinated, their culture dismantled, history rewritten, black hatred of whites institutionalized, and the governing document discredited?

As Trump would say, “Not good.”
