In the midst of a discussion on the recent Ferguson grand jury verdict, panelist Mychal Denzel Smith (wearing his “Unapologetically Black” T-shirt) said the verdict must be understood in light of America’s inherent ‘racism': “The foundation of this country is racism and white supremacy and all of our institutions uphold that.”
As much as blacks may want to see vestiges of racism in the grand jury’s decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson, their conclusions were not reached by any racial consensus but by a consideration of all the facts. Three of the jurors were themselves black.
In spite of the shooting being manipulated into an issue of race, there really wasn’t anything racial about it. The officer used his handgun not because his attacker’s skin was a different shade than his own, but because he physically attacked him, tried to take his own weapon, and violently charged at him in an effort to further assault him.
And yes, it’s true that America’s founding was based on a preference for white europeans. This was the case in the founding of all white western nations, so the U.S. is hardly unique in that sense. That whites would prefer their own kind over those of other races and cultures comports with what humans of all racial groups do. Why isolate and condemn the founding of the U.S. when it has occurred among all nations, including African nations?
The underlying assumption is that it’s wrong for whites to prefer those of their own race. While other nations are free to defend their borders from foreigners, including establishing policies to preserve their racial identity and unique culture, whites are not granted this essential human right.
Our nations must be opened to the entire world and every non-assimilating mongrel group on the planet possessing the most primitive and ass-backwards cultures must be permitted to immigrate.
And while it’s true that our country made a massive error in contributing to the slave industry and in owning African slaves, we also made significant strides to rectify our past national sins. Hundreds of thousands of white Americans invariably paid for it too with their lives during the War for Southern Independence – even though a minuscule amount of whites actually owned slaves.
Even today, we are still making amends for it in the form of welfare toward blacks, affirmative action, and through a plethora of government programs designed to bring blacks to parity with whites.
Blacks have made sure to show their appreciation for it too by virtually decimating our once grand cities with their dysfunctional ways and skyrocketing crime levels, by fully populating all of our prisons, and by provoking white flight wherever large numbers of them settle.
