“I don’t like [whites]. I want them to be the lost species in a hundred years.”-Yasmin Alibhai Brown

“One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach: All the damn vampires!”-Grandpa from The Lost Boys

The Western psyche is suffering from severe cognitive dissonance. Take a look at this pair of statements from the same job posting:

The University wholeheartedly supports and encourages the development of action programs designed to promote the employment and advancement of women, Blacks, Latino, Asians, Native Americans, persons with disabilities, and Vietnam-era Veterans as a means of assuring compliance with the provisions of campus Affirmative Action plans.


The University firmly supports the concept of equal opportunity without regard to an individual's race, color, age, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or veteran status as it applies to his/her employment, admission to or participation in the University's programs and activities, provision of services, and selection of vendors who provide services or products to the University.

These statements are mutually exclusive, and yet somehow they appear side-by-side in the same job posting. In the hands of the Left, language loses all meaning, and logic inevitably dissipates. At Pomona College in California, a “coalition of marginalized students” produced a letter to the president excerpted below:

Historically, white supremacy has venerated the idea of objectivity and wielded a dichotomy of ‘subjectivity vs. objectivity’ as a means of silencing oppressed peoples. The idea that there is a single truth—‘the Truth’—is a construct of the Euro-West that is deeply rooted in the Enlightenment, which was a movement that also described Black and Brown people as both subhuman and impervious to pain. This construction is a myth and white supremacy, imperialism, colonization, capitalism, and the United States of America are all of its progeny. The idea that the truth is an entity for which we must search, in matters that endanger our abilities to exist in open spaces, is an attempt to silence oppressed peoples.

What this letter represents is nothing short of a call to dismantle the intellectual and philosophical achievements of the West because they “silence oppressed peoples.” Liberalism itself—true, classical liberalism—holds that these people can and should have a voice, and the Eurowestern projects of ending slavery and expanding the franchise, not to mention concepts such as human rights and the intrinsic equality of human life, would not exist without this maligned Enlightenment. Simply because these people were not able to produce such concepts or make such progress themselves, we must dismantle our intellectual and philosophical inheritance in our own lands to accommodate these interlopers who are, in their sustained anti-white campaigning, biting the hands that feed unaware that when the body cools and the blood dries up, the leech dies, too.

The sub-Saharan Africans had not invented the wheel by the time the Europeans began to penetrate the interior in the 19th century, though Somalia and Ethiopia were benefitting from its introduction by the Nilotic people to the north. The sub-Saharan Africans had no written languages to speak of (pictographic Nsibidi possibly excepted), no system of government beyond the tribal, and really no innovations. Black Africans were not even able to construct sea-faring vessels sturdy enough to go to Madagascar. With an embarrassment of natural resources, the Africans were not subjected to the extremes of natural selection and the intellect-sharpening rigors of scarcity and rationing in cold climes the way whites and Northeast Asians were, though for reasons we don’t yet understand the one exception to this phenomenon are the Igbo people of Nigeria, often called “The Jews of Africa,” with average IQs way above not just the rest of sub-Saharan Africa, but by some estimates on par with whites.


Nevertheless, Igbo excepted, the average IQ of sub-Saharan African adults is equal to 11 year old Europeans, as their IQ scores estimate (Rushton, 2004); in such a paucity of advanced reasoning, the likelihood of a John Locke or John Stuart Mill emerging out of the malaria-infested jungles of Africa is difficult to imagine. To wit, it hasn’t happened, and probably never will. Ilana Mercer writes:

Declining birth rates have long been the excuse advanced by immigration central-planners for sticking with mass immigration policies. The aging white population is not replacing itself, say proponents of dooms-day demographics. Young, Third-World immigrants are essential to shore up the welfare state. However, the now-waning West became great not because it was more populated than the rest of the world and outbred it. The West was great because of its human capital—innovation, exploration, science, philosophy; because of superior ideas, and the willingness to defend such a civilization.

The University of Southern California’s Rossier School of Education and its Race and Equity Center employs one Charles H.F. Davis, a “black identity extremist” who is of the opinion that, “Sometimes white supremacist heterosexist patriarchy needs to get the violence it imparts, making its intolerance clear,” and, “The layers of white fragility and white privilege here are exhausting…Whiteness and white supremacy must be, by any and all means, destroyed.” If whiteness was so fragile I don’t know why the entire planet has to be aligned against it because it seems like a light breeze would send its house of cards scattering, but I digress. The point is that a major and respectable American institution holds in its employ a professor in Davis who is literally vocalizing genocide.

They’re far from an outlier, and the whole rotten edifice is supported by the federal government underwriting student loans so whites can matriculate and learn about how terrible they are while minorities whose cultures have accomplished little to nothing can be falsely empowered simply because they have been exoticized by a self-loathing liberal class. These “useful idiots” propagate the myths of white supremacy and remain tethered to a region-, time-, and class-specific black exploitation that happened well outside of anyone’s living memory, and they treat this paradigm as if it is somehow universal.

In James Baldwin’s tract on anti-Semitism in 1967, his conflation of the privately-owned colony of the Congo by Belgian King Leopold II, who was so brutal the state of Belgium confiscated it from him, is somehow indicative of that very same Belgian state that intervened on behalf of the Congolese, and further, of Europeans in general. As James Baldwin wrote,

“What will the Christian world, which is so uneasily silent now, say on that day which is coming when the black native of South Africa begins to massacre the masters who have massacred him so long?”

We know the answer—it stays silent. This silence is a shameful complicity borne of the deep-seated feeling that somehow they deserve it and that when the time comes for us, it will come in the form of justice for having raped and pillaged the entire world and bent it to European will.

If only the latter part were true, the much-vaunted “tolerance” of the Left wouldn’t ring so hollow.
