#41. The Greatest Generation

(While you read this, listen to this song)


"December 7, 1941 - a date that will live in infamy...," so said Franklin Roosevelt 68 years ago today, in the wake of the horrific surprise attack by the Empire of Japan on US Naval forces based in Hawaii:
"The attack sank four U.S. Navy battleships (two of which were raised and returned to service later in the war) and damaged four more. The Japanese also sank or damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, and one minelayer, destroyed 188 aircraft, and caused personnel losses of 2,402 killed and 1,282 wounded."
This attack by Japan awoke the so-called "sleeping giant" and forced the United States to declare war upon them (and eventually Germany and Italy) and enter World War II against the Axis Powers.

Have you seen the 2001 movie Pearl Harbor? Dorie Miller had his story immortalized in Michael Bay's movie, as Cuba Gooding Jr., played the real-life Casey Ryback/ John Rambo killer combo, wielding a machine gun and blasting away the Japanese.

As the Michael Bay movie shows, had this Black seamen not engaged the enemy, World War II would have been lost from the start.

After this attack, a formerly isolationist nation would mobilize quickly and put forth one of the most impressive fighting forces the world has ever seen, in an effort to subdue the Japanese and the threat of Fascism in Europe for good.

Answering the call of Uncle Sam were millions upon millions of Americans, as the nation of 130 million would see almost 11 percent of its population engaging the enemy in war.

It is important to remember that the United States in 1940 was a completely different nation than we are today. The nation was comprised of almost 90 percent white people, with Black people comprising roughly nine percent.

The United States had a segregated military up until 1948:
"African Americans have served in the U.S. military since the days of George Washington, but it took until July 26, 1948, for the country to begin living up the democratic ideals that they fought to defend.

As World War II approached, the United States found itself opposed to fascist regimes and their racist ideologies, yet it had to reckon with the hard reality that many of its own 12.6 million African-American citizens -- about 10 percent of the population at the time -- were denied basic civil rights and human opportunities.

The bitter irony that President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms” (freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want and freedom from fear) set forth as U.S. war aims were largely unavailable to African Americans did not stop 2.5 million black men from registering for the military draft. More than 1 million eventually served in all branches of the armed forces during World War II. In addition, thousands of African-American women volunteered as combat nurses."

Why point this out? Well, to put it mildly, Black people didn't have that much of a role in World War II and the defeat of the Axis Powers. An interesting United States government Defense website completely glosses over Black involvement in World War Two, save for the aforementioned Dorie Miller and the vaunted Tuskegee Airmen.

What Black people actually did in World War II is quite interesting, as the United States government decided to keep most of the Black soldiers away from the conflict (and thus, incapable of duplicating Miller's Pearl Harbor exploits):

1944
By this time, the War Department’s critical need for troops overseas helped to ease opposition to the dispatch of black servicemen to the European or Pacific theaters.

The number of African Americans serving in-theater jumped from 97,725 in 1941 to 504,000 in 1943. However, 425,000 black troops remained in the United States. The military claimed that allied foreign nations objected to the presence of black troops, but it was usually American commanders overseas who opposed their assignment.

17 July 1944
The worst home front disaster of WWII occurred when two ships, the E.A. Bryan and the Quinalt Victory, docked at Port Chicago, California, exploded one night while African-American sailors were loading ammunition for use in the Pacific theater. Both ships and the loading pier were destroyed, while many of the nearby town’s buildings also suffered severe damage.

Of the 320 men killed, 202 of them were black enlisted men; the blast also injured 390 men. The worst military loss of life in the continental United States during WWII, this one incident involved 15 percent of all African Americans wounded or killed in this conflict.

Despite the extensive casualties, however, sailors were ordered to resume loading on 9 August 1944, with no training or procedural changes to help safeguard against another such catastrophe. Because they were afraid of another explosion, 258 African-American sailors refused to comply with orders.

The U.S. Navy court martialed 50 men for mutiny and tried the other 208 on lesser charges. Those convicted of mutiny were sentenced to 15 years in prison, but after the war they were granted amnesty. However, their original convictions were not overturned. Ultimately, though, this incident did result in changes affecting racial relations in the Navy, because ammunition loading ceased to be a "blacks only" assignment. The Navy also adopted safer procedures for loading ammunition.

Only 708 Black people died in combat during World War II, in a war that saw 418,500 Americans die while defending freedom and democracy from tyranny and oppression.

It is important to remember that racial views in the 1940s weren't as angelic as they're now, and that prejudicial and ignorant views of Black people were the norm. Black people were second-class citizens in America, and decided to wage a war against oppression at home, while white people were slaying evil yellow and white people abroad:
"The African American community in the United States resolved on a Double V Campaign: Victory over fascism abroad, and victory over discrimination at home. Large numbers migrated from poor Southern farms to munitions centers.

Racial tensions were high in overcrowded cities like Chicago; Detroit and Harlem experienced race riots in 1943.The derogative name jig was coined during this time. The Pittsburgh Courier created the Double V Campaign after readers began commenting on their second class status during wartime."
While the Double V Campaign was being waged in America, white American troops were busy engaging the enemy in the Pacific Theater and eventually in the German-occupied European continent.

The millions of white people who fought tyranny, nationalism and fascism abroad and the hundreds of thousands who died so doing, were working to ensure that the goals of the Double V campaign would come to fruition at some point, even if they didn't consciously know it.

Pre-Obama America was a diseased land and needed to be cleansed of its boring whiteness. Sure, these overwhelming white troops defeated evil in World War II, and they even had the honor of being dubbed "The Greatest Generation" for their efforts:
"The Greatest Generation" is a term coined by journalist Tom Brokaw to describe the generation who grew up in the United States during the deprivation of the Great Depression, and then went on to fight in World War II, as well as those whose productivity within the war's home front made a decisive material contribution to the war effort."
But these Real American Heroes fought World War II so that the world we currently live in could be birthed; could see its genesis. These white people defeated Japan, a people who have never had a lofty opinion of Black people, and the Germans (who treated Jesse Owens with more respect than he would receive in America).

The Greatest Generation returned home from WWII victorious, and would then wage a war upon racism within its states to ensure true equality to all people, of all races.

Black people owe The Greatest Generation an almost inconceivable and repayable debt, for they bestowed Black people equality after the war and handed the reigns of power to them completely.

The United States enjoyed an unbelievable epoch of prosperity after World War II, which saw an unprecedented growth of the middle-class that affected white people, as well as Black people.

White people fled the major cities, leaving them to be governed by Black people and inadvertently destroying the old identity of those cities and instilling a negative stereotype of the urban jungle for all eternity.

Untold billions would be spent - the hard-earned tax dollars of The Greatest Generation - on Lyndon B. Johnson's Great Society programs, as every attempt to remake the average American Black person into your average white person would be undertaken.

Yet these members of The Greatest Generation sacrificed countless lives in the war (more than 400,000 white Americans gave their lives so this new world of equality could exist) to usher in the new America - which might never be absolved of white racism.

The greatness of the era right after WWII - some might call it Pleasantville - was but a glimpse of a country that could have been, but was to be sacrificed to the Gods of Blackness.

In retrospect, Black people owe America and The Greatest Generation absolutely nothing (as long as they continue to entertain us with their dazzling sports skills). The cumulative sacrifices of white people in World War II register barely a penitence for the historical stain of racism that Black people must constantly remember and put hardly a dint in bitter narrative of white supremacy that dominates the colored people of the world like a rampaging river.

Like Damocles Sword, white guilt is the bitter legacy of The Greatest Generation, for they extirpated a nation that seemed poised to preside over the world's affairs and usher in an irenic era of continued growth and unabated happiness.

However, this misguided sense of destiny was supplanted by the work of disingenuous white liberals - who constantly repent for their whiteness - and the crusading white pedagogues - those poor souls who fight and try to undo nature - as they constantly maneuver to heap scorn upon this misnamed Greatest Generation as just an extension of Nazi Germany (whoops, that was by the books author).

These members of the The Greatest Generation represent one of the last links of the chain to an era of racism, oppression and evil, even though this group did more to ensure that Black people had a seat at the table. Don't worry, they will soon be gone:

"In 2000, there were 555,974, WWII veterans in California, according to U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. There are now 213,118. Ten years from now, just 30,370 will be alive. Across the nation, we lose 900 WWII veterans a day.

It is urgent that we honor these heroes now, while there is time. Strangely, given the scope, magnitude and importance of World War II, America had been woefully late in acknowledging a debt we can never repay to those who defended the liberty we take for granted."
With each passing of a veteran of World War II, the rapidity of the air coming out Pre-Obama America speeds up. Will an article one day appear in an America newspaper much like this one from England?"

"Nearly 400,000 Britons died. Millions more were scarred by the experience, physically and mentally.

But was it worth it? Her answer - and the answer of many of her contemporaries, now in their 80s and 90s - is a resounding No.

They despise what has become of the Britain they once fought to save. It's not our country any more, they say, in sorrow and anger.

In one letter in this collection, an RAF mechanic quoted a poem about comrades who fell in battle: 'I mourned them then, But now surviving in a world, Indifferent to their hopes and dreams, I grieve more for the living.'


The Greatest Generation is a sickening reminder to the inhabitants of Obama's America of a stain that no matter how hard it is scrubbed, can never be removed. The dreams, ambitions, sacrifices and goals of these brave men and women built the country we live in today.

Paradoxically, Black people cannot be to happy with this generation for they kept Black people from contributing fully in World War II. Yet, the dichotomy of this situation is equally a tragedy: this experience of divisiveness would ensure that Black people received full integration into America life.

Worse, The Greatest Generation is forced to undergo a Crayola Moment as the overbearing whiteness of this group is in dire need of a good 21st century revisionist coloring.

Where can this be found? Easy. Movies. People believe truth to be formulated by what they visualize and favorable impressions of historically inaccurate "truths" can be conjured through the magic of cinema:
"On February 19 1945 Thomas McPhatter found himself on a landing craft heading toward the beach on Iwo Jima.

"There were bodies bobbing up all around, all these dead men," said the former US marine, now 83 and living in San Diego. "Then we were crawling on our bellies and moving up the beach. I jumped in a foxhole and there was a young white marine holding his family pictures. He had been hit by shrapnel, he was bleeding from the ears, nose and mouth. It frightened me. The only thing I could do was lie there and repeat the Lord's prayer, over and over and over."

Sadly, Sgt McPhatter's experience is not mirrored in Flags of Our Fathers, Clint Eastwood's big-budget, Oscar-tipped film of the battle for the Japanese island that opened on Friday in the US. While the film's battle scenes show scores of young soldiers in combat, none of them are African-American. Yet almost 900 African-American troops took part in the battle of Iwo Jima, including Sgt McPhatter.

The film tells the story of the raising of the stars and stripes over Mount Suribachi at the tip of the island. The moment was captured in a photograph that became a symbol of the US war effort. Eastwood's film follows the marines in the picture, including the Native American Ira Hayes, as they were removed from combat operations to promote the sale of government war bonds.

Mr McPhatter, who went on to serve in Vietnam and rose to the rank of lieutenant commander in the US navy, even had a part in the raising of the flag. "The man who put the first flag up on Iwo Jima got a piece of pipe from me to put the flag up on," he says. That, too, is absent from the film.

"Of all the movies that have been made of Iwo Jima, you never see a black face," said Mr McPhatter. "This is the last straw. I feel like I've been denied, I've been insulted, I've been mistreated. But what can you do? We still have a strong underlying force in my country of rabid racism."

Spike Lee accused the film's director, Clint Eastwood, of racism, for not showing a single Black face in his World War II movies:

In round one, Lee came out swinging at Director Clint Eastwood's WWII films, "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters from Iwo Jima," claiming that Eastwood "erased the role of black GIs from history." Lee tried on his self-righteous air of moral certitude and labeled Eastwood a racist. "Many black veterans who fought in Iwo Jima were hurt that there was no representation of them in both of those films," Lee said in an interview in Rome last year.

Round two began as the blow fell upon Eastwood in an interview with Focus magazine. Why was Eastwood such a racist, they wondered? Eastwood, momentarily rocked on his heels, came back with a knock out blow showing the world that, aging or not, he was still faster and smarter than the bespeckled, racemongering Lee.

"Does he know anything about American history?" Eastwood told Focus when asked about Lee's criticism. "The U.S. military was segregated til the Korean War, and the blacks in World War Two were totally segregated. The only black battalion on Iwo Jima was a small munitions supply unit that came to the beach.

"The story was about the men who raised the flag and we can't make them black if they were not there. So tell him: Why don't you go back and study your history and stop mouthing off!"

You see, the coming decades will see an erosion of historical facts and the inclusion of more Black faces into the tale of World War II so that Dorie Miller can have some much deserved colored company.

For Stuff Black People Don't Like includes The Greatest Generation, as the war these white people fought was won without the help of Black soldiers and worse, in a period of time when Black people faced rampant discrimination at home. How can these people - The Greatest Generation - be the source of simultaneous pride and yet universal scorn for their racial chauvenism?

The answer is simple: they can't. The Greatest Generation will fade into obscurity and memory as they leave this realm of existence and depart for the afterlife.

A new group will be awarded the moniker The Greatest Generation, for the defeat of Japan and Germany by white people no longer reflects the multiracial splendor that is 21st America. That title will be reserved Obama's generation.

Anyone who believes a word from this article is to stupid or racist and should not be taken seriously. Tack a few numbers on that KIA number and maybe you might be in the ball park. Ever heard of 761th tank division one of many black combat divisions that was more effective than any white tank division and easily broke through German lines. This website is for immature insecure white boys who cant deal with the world around them. Its funny how white discriminate against blacks then complain they arent doing enough. Blacks have always served this nation when the call to action was necessary. Blacks have served in every war this nation has ever had. This article and websites like this are good example of why affrimative action still exists. Blacks are naturally better atheletes therefore better soldiers. I remember when I went through RANGER school and 8 eight out of the 15 blacks that graduate surpassed everyone else with ease.

Stuff White People Dont Like includes real history because it forces them to deal with their insecurities and to acknowledge that they are not the superior race in the world and never where.

Anon,

No one is discounting that Black people aren't good soldiers. Does it say that anywhere within this article?

Nope.

But as the entry to Real American Heroes points out, Black people are less than five percent of every military branches elite fighting force.

How about KIA in the latest war we have entangled ourselves in?

Real History? This article is real history, anon.

The military was segregated during WWII. Black people have a cook as their hero of this war, or the Tuskegee Airmen...

If you feel this article was a slight against Black contributions during WWII, well, not sorry.

This article is about The Greatest Generation and how they represent both the Omega of white racialism in America and yet the Alpha of the new Black age we live in.

You say Black people have always served this nation when the call to action was necessary?

Being an athlete is an important aspect of being a competent soldier. But just one aspect. The ability to take orders, maintain disciple and demonstrate intelligence are also aspects of the well-rounded soldier.

Anon - the person behind this website is one of the most secure people in the world. By writing this article, I'm not discriminating against Black people. I'm putting together necessary information that paints a disheartening picture of Black people in WWII.

706 Black people died in WWII. More than 400,000 white people died (Americans). There's your KIA.

In reply to Proud White Liberal, please review the following link: www.761st.com

Note that the 761st was a tank battalion, e.g. a unit of roughly 800 men. As proud as this unit's record of service is (and frankly I don't know much about it's record of service), 800 men did not decide a war as vast as WWII.

My dad (Still alive and kickin') was a gunners mate on a repair ship in the Pacific. (He repaired and maintained .50 caliber machine guns and then tested them out on seagulls .. What an AWESOME job)....
And he said there were blacks on his ship. He was thankful they were there. He doesn't know how they did it (Extra glob of lard in the stew maybe?) but he said they had a way to make "Shit-on-a-shingle" (Chipped beef on toast)taste half-way good. Thank God for our black service men!!

Again,

To those who will read this or stumble upon this entry via google or other search engines:

We do not bemoan the sacrifices of Black people in our military, nor discount that they happened.

By pointing out how few Black people actually served in WWII (and how few died), SBPDL believes that Black people can't lay claim to being part of THE GREATEST GENERATION.

Now this is shocking. A white leftist who disparages whites and fawns over blacks. If I hadn't already seen a lifetime of them I'd swear my eyes were lying. I imagine he even considers himself to be a courageous individualist--just like the 81,205,627 other bots intellectually manufactured to his exact specifications.

Why his supple mind is even able to grasp that this site is "to stupid" to understand that whites "never where" superior. Now if only he could grasp the difference between a division and a battalion.

SBDL,
You're correct we can't lay claim to being a part of the "greatest generation" simply because it is a phrase by white people to describe white people of that time in history. I'm one of the few blacks that don't wish to rain on your little parade or be a part of your little world.

Besides I have accomplished things today in my own life that I don't need to conjure the spirits of past generations. Especially not the white ones. The mere fact of serving in segregated units should have told us that we were not and never will be considered a part of "the greatest generation" no matter how much blood we shed.

By the time our nigrescent heros arrived at the front VERY late war. They were entering combat against a mere shell of what the combined German forces once were. Imagine fighting a crack pre-43 SS Divison. Good luck boys from the 761st.

How about those red tails from 1939-to-1943? Probably not very good?

fyi: Did you know Blacks fought & died for the Germans during WW2?

Phony hyper PC white liberals will do more damage to black people than hundreds of years of slavery ever could. Look at your parents, grandparents, and friends. That's your history. How can a historian or a book publisher that doesn't know you from a hole in the wall tell your story. That goes for you white folks also. I'm not trying to be friends or even find common ground. It's just no matter how you feel about me or those that look like me, you know I'm right.

History is told by the victors. What if they failed? Would their cause be considered just? Maybe, but they wouldn't be called "The greatest generation".

Anonymous said...

SBDL,

How do you think the "typical" white person to quote the half black dude would feel, if that iconic picture of the sailor kissing that woman was black? Would you have used to state your point about the "greatest generation"? Isn't this term just some stupid made thing like "generation x"or Kwanzaa?

I don't believe they took the time to give themselves such a corn ball labels, because they were busy getting things done. You see I'm a black person that has an appreciation and respect for the history of this nation. The good, the bad , and the ugly.

I support the preservation of the confederate flag as a legitimate part of our nation's history. Despite the legions of ignorant blacks and whites that have little true understanding of its true meaning . So, the men and women that shed blood for this nation were great, but not for the reasons expressed here.

Tyrone at 1:45 p.m. is LYING said...

The proud "white liberal" Tryone at 1:45 p.m. is LYING. He has obviously done too much jenkum today. I was part of a special forces unit in the military. I very rarely saw a black face. The battery of psychological and intelligence testing we faced and the fact that you had to know how to swim seemed to be an insurmountable barrier to black inclusion in the Rangers, Force Recon, Navy Seals and Air Force Special Ops. Advanced hand to hand combat training and sparring doesn't seem to be high on their list either.

Very few black recruits want to do anything but PX or supply depot duty where they can sit on their behinds and smoke weed all day and harass white enlisted women, sometimes even white female officers!

Blacks are not better athletes. This is not, I repeat, NOT, an NFL combine. Quick burst speed over short distances is irrelevant in combat and combat training. In my vast experience, whites are stronger than blacks by every measure, have more endurance and their bodies seem to recover from pt quicker. Blacks produce too much lactic acid in their muscles too quickly because they are too lazy to train hard enough to lower its production. Ketoacidosis among blacks was not uncommon. I saw so many out of shape black regulars, who looked muscular and in shape flunk out of just basic training. As a whole, they are often whiny, surly, narcissistic, and require special incentives just to follow basic orders; they are rarely team players. We put our lives in each others' hands in close combat situations and that will not do.

Anybody remember when Riddick Bowe was World Heavyweight Boxing Champion and he entered basic training in the Marines? Embarrasingly, he gave up almost immediately, even though average white boys with no athletic training could cut it all day long. Riddick Bowe, then the TOUGHEST BLACK ATHLETE IN THE WORLD, had to be carried out and he was hospitalized after he left. Andrew Golata, an "insecure white boy" retired him shortly thereafter.

Is anybody logged into this website stupid enough to think that we have any sensitive, white liberal wussies in any of the special forces, even in the Seals? (Sorry about that last cheap shot frogboys, really, I am.) Has anybody ever noticed how when a drunken beta male on a bar stool brags about being in the service, it is always "special forces?" As far as Tyrone's numbers of black graduates outdoing whites? Tyrone is full of jenkum and doesn't have a clue what he is talking about, hence the complete absence of detail or meaningful corroboration in his post.

I have experience in linguistics and cryptography and I can tell you for a fact that that post was written by a black male. Several points of syntax and sentence structure clearly point this out, but any layperson could tell this from common sense due to some of the phraseology used such as "insecure white boys" which is a boilerplate black racist put down that not even a white liberal would make. Overall, the post is internally incongruous and self contradictory: a white liberal, in the Rangers???, and one who cites black ethnocentric revisionist views of military history, referring to "scared white boys", standard mythological black references to black athletic "superiority", blatantly obvious lies about black performance at graduation, standard cries of "rayciss", typical black grievance mongering regarding inflated claims of historical black participation, should I continue, Tyrone?

So you make an article about Black people not dying enough in previous wars..but then talk about how Blacks were segregated and discriminated against. So even though Blacks served in EVERY war, the discrimination faced from whites made it so they very rarely saw battle. So Blacks are not part of the "Greatest generation" because of whom? Because of the lack of opportunities for them? That is like someone telling a student they can never be valedictorian and set up laws to make sure they don't...then turning around and bemoaning the fact that they aren't valedictorian.
Epic fail in terms of this post and from reading the rest of the comments, I see I am not alone.

I applaud the Blacks who have served and/or died for this country along with everyone else. regardless of color. People like this author are maybe the reason why some Blacks feel that our service to this country is returned with nothing but a slap in the face. You die..but you didn't die enough. that's basically what you're saying. Also, I find it interesting that in every article someone wants to bring up population statistics but not in this one. If the black population was low before and during WW2..wouldn't the amount of enlisted people reflect that? If as many Blacks as whites died in WW2 then it would have greatly impacted their population seeing as how whites are the majority. You have the most people..common sense dictates you will lose the most in a war.
This article is offensive and I will make sure to forward it to my cousin who is in Iraq right now as we speak. Putting his life on the line. Just like my uncles,grandfather and cousins.
I hope he reads it to all his buddies in his division.
So keep clapping your gaping maw..because there are Black people defending your right to say whatever vitriol spouts out of your mouth.
I have a suggestion for your next article on Stuff Black People Don't Like.
We don't like people belittling the sacrifices made by soldiers or soiling their memory by claiming they didn't do enough. That goes for Black,White,Asian,Latin,ect reading this.
If you are reading this, I appreciate you. Even if you are the only one in your family line to have ever served, I still appreciate you and all you do.

To ANON (who took offense about Black people in the military and threatened to send this article to his cousin) -

Epic Fail indeed, my friend, for you fail to understand the point of this post.

Black people made up 10 percent of the United States population in 1940.

I love population statistics - and this article does us them (Note to everyone: click on the links, as you'll learn an awful lot from them. I find the best links that will EDUCATE people beyond what is written here)

To anyone who is new to this site, I recommend reading every entry. Each one builds on the next. Go back and read "Real American Heroes" and "Top Gun" entry.

Once you read those entries, read "Naval Academy Standards" entry, to see how the NAVY is becoming more diverse at the expense of Old Standards that deprived Black people the chance of being a midshipmen.

I'm glad your cousin is serving in the war... it appears less and less Black people are these days.

SBPDL loves the military.SBPDL also loves The Greatest Generation, which must be excluded from any discussion of racial sensitivity - since they existed in a world where Black people were second class citizens - also made it possible for the world we now live in to come to fruition.

Black people owe a debt of gratitude to The Greatest Generation, but then again they don't. A Catch-22 situation, indeed.

In the future, WWII will be rewritten, so that the exploits of Audie Murphy will be represented by Mr. Dorie Miller, the greatest soldier the United States has ever produced.

Stuff Black People Don't Like said...

Black guy-

Interesting comments. I always enjoy reading your input.

The term Greatest Generation was a remarkable marketing ploy by Tom Brokaw - much like Nike, Buick, Accenture, etc., did a great job of marketing a "fake" Tiger Woods to the public - and since these white people sacrificed to create the world we now live in, I think it is a fine moniker.

Your point in your first response is the whole thesis of this post.

How can Black people look at WWII without an intense feeling of alienation? They were denied access to fight in this "good war" and find themselves left out in the movies glorifying this war - "Saving Private Ryan", "Thin Red Line", "Flags of Our Fathers"... etc.

SBDL,

I can't speak for all blacks,but I can say my grandfather speaks of his service during world war 2 with pride. His story will not be told on the history channel, but it will live among the people who matter the most. Family, friends, and most importantly the brave souls that fought and died with him. Black and white alike.

As far as the movies you mentioned are concerned. I get the fact that they were telling a particular story from one particular point of view. Despite Spike Lee's assertion, they weren't racist in the least bit,and Clint Eastwood was 100% right when he told that clown to "shut up". I was also confused by the racism accusation that followed Eastwood's response.

I don't fell any sense of alienation in the discussion of WW2. In fact it's just the opposite. Maybe it's just that I realize that it is illogical to expect or desire non-blacks to take an interest in our history.

A very smart teacher of mind said it was more important to know about George Washington than Martin Luther King. "Learn more about the white man, than he knows about himself".

Anon 10:50, Please elaborate on how the black race is superior to the white race in every way. I do agree that blacks are better in some ways. Blacks are much better at running their mouths than any other race of people. Much better at interracial rape and violent crime. Much better at taking credit for the civilizational accomplishments of other races. Much better at playing the role of parasites. Much better at openly exhibiting hostility towards whites, and at the same time, demanding access to all facets of white created society. Much better at playing the cry baby victim. And much better at overestimating their abilities. So I guess you're at least partially correct in your claim of black superiority.

Looks like we got a real 'hata' here with Leroy (anon 10:50).

Wow, try to keep your envy of us a little more disguised, since it is so painfully obvious. I think you negroes, although you have, on average, rather low IQ's (and even lower "EQ's" - emotional intelligence) you all seem to have an enormous "JQ" - Jealousy Quotient.

After all, it is not our fault you are the psycho that you are.

Hope I didn't use too many big words for you. If I did, maybe one of your 'white ho's' can translate for you.

"Ever heard of 761th tank division one of many black combat divisions that was more effective than any white tank division and easily broke through German lines."

as far as i know, it took 3 Americans ,5 Brittons and 10 Russians to kill one German soldier.Also "broke through German lines" this is a bit too much for my taste.American tanks and crews were inferior to German ones.There is a famous radio call:"HELP HELP Tiger tank" which was forbidden later on to not damage the morale of the Allied troops.There were more German tanks destroyed by the Air Force due to total air superiority of the allies and more tanks were abandoned by German crews (lack of fuel ect.) than they were actually destroyed by Allied tanks.

It was rather white of you to use some really "hip" lingo like "hata", whatever that means. I'll bring that one up at the next black people meeting. We have it Idaho, because Detroit would be to obvious.

I have to commend you on your brilliant comedy by naming a suspected black poster"Leroy". I never read or heard anything that fresh and original in quite a while. I thought you were a comedian, but when you began to quote "facts" about IQ's I have to assume you're a scientist.

The fact is "Leroy" isn't a "hata", but one of many confused blacks that believe people like you are an aberration. They"date" couple of daddy hating white chicks or become the token black "friend" to a group of phony white liberal hypocrites and they become allergic to the truth. People like "Leroy" will call you racist. I just call you white. What are the odds that this dude has a fat white girlfriend? Based on his crying I believe the odds are pretty good.

Black Guy,

Personally, I would prefer you held that meeting in Uganda. But that's just quixotic daydreaming on my part.

Also, I thought the "Leroy" jab was a little 70s. I think today it would be L'Roi. And his friends Tanqaniqua, Rayntrelle, Me'boon-boon, and Triskaidekaphobia.

Though seriously--and sadly--you're wrong on a point. The people on here *are* aberrations. Most brainwashed whites actually have come to believe that one can pick up a turd by the clean end. And that the best future for their white posterity is one ruled by violent and parasitic black/browns.

The one and only question is which unpleasantry whites will ultimately embrace: cultural extinction or being called racist.

Multi Culturalism does not aim to destroy western culture or Christian values, the naive anti-islamist bloggers always love to think that.PC MC is a creeping anti-white race war.Look at the situation in Scandinavia.The countries there never had any colonies nor slaves,yet they are the worst PC police states in the world.Sweden is the rape capital of the world.And ,no this time it's not only blacks who are leading the rape statistics on swedish women but middle eastern muslims mostly.

Indirectly you are right,no whites=no western culture.

I agree with everything but your first sentence. I think the PC-MC complex is *both* anti-white and anti western culture. Though we're splitting hairs as neither will live long without the other.

Every year the world's white population declines in both absolute and relative numbers. Every year the idea of "white countries" grows closer to becoming an oxymoron--and "racist" in addition.

Ultimately, we will either stand up for ourselves and assert our natural right to simply live peacefully apart in our own countries or we will be murdered and miscegenated out of existence. If any assessment of modern trends leads to another logical conclusion, I'd be fascinated to hear it.

All I got to say is for thousands of years blacks have inhabited the country with the richest natural resources on the planet...Africa. And they still live in mud huts and squalor. Ain't seein' much in the ways of engineering or physics breakthroughs coming out of Africa. Deductive reasoning points out that blacks just ain't got it upstairs. The truth is what it is.
