Black people - though they might not like what Pre-Obama America represented - have no real animosity toward the United States of America.
The USA is a land of endless dreams and hope, and for a people united in a common cause anything is possible. Black people united in furthering Black interests can thus accomplish anything they put their collective mind toward and have the incredible superpower of instilling weak knees in any white person who dares point out this obvious truth.
Black collectivist thinking is incredibly admirable and worthy of emulation by all racial groups, especially the burgeoning Hispanic minority population, for the racial spoils system in the United States rewards groups who put collective interests ahead of individualistic attitudes.
As one brilliant Black author put it:
"Solidarity is essential to the empowerment of the black people. The mighty black race of the future will be a conglomeration of all the myriad nations, tribes, and sub-races that characterize the contemporary black race."Civil Rights would never have been passed were it not for Black collectivist thinking and a desire to gain full equality; Black college football head coaches would not be hired were it not for the hard work of the Black Coaches Association; Black people wouldn't have stayed in power in Atlanta were it not for Black voters coming to the aid of the Black candidate for mayor there; and worse, Black people wouldn't be able to engage in the new game TBW were it not for the collective indifference of Black violence against non-Black people.
Again, Mein Obama still finds incredible support - nearly monolithic support - from the Black community, even though his approval ratings tank with the speed of Tiger Woods career.
Without Black collectivist thinking, Fortune 500 companies might still discriminate in hiring practices and worse, the entire diversity industry that employs so many Black people in enforcing the new orthodoxy that pervades every section of America life wouldn't be in place.
The Black Caucus wouldn't be in place in the United States Congress; a United Negro Fund would be but a dream for Black people desiring to get into college who lack the athletic ability to earn a scholarship; Miss Black USA would have to compete against all those white girls in Miss USA pageants, and so forth.
In fact, an interesting list of various all-Black organizations can be found here, which includes the Blacks in Government organization, which promotes Black people in government! Talk about a fantastic idea!
Why deny that collectivism and tribalism isn't the wave of the future? It's already the trend in the Black community and helps to ensure that Black people get ahead in such an evil, bigoted white nation that keeps the Black man down.
You see, the United States of America is such a racist nation, Black people are encouraged to create institutions that have the explicit goal of promoting Black interests only, at the expense of other groups. Were the United States a bigoted nation, these institutions would lose federal funding, receive no corporate grants and worse, lose their tax-exempt status, not to mention being snubbed by the media and treated like lepers.
No, collectivism is encouraged in the Black community ( and minority community ) in America with results that maintain the viability of affirmative action programs in every sector of United States life.
Were notions of individualism inserted into the Black community, the delicate house of cards that has been constructed to hold aloft the Black world in the USA would crumble, for the importance of collectivism to Black people is vital to their continued success.
Interestingly, in all activities save for crime statistics and standardized test scores do Black people find enjoyment in the notion of collectivism.
It is obvious to anyone looking at this situation honestly that Black people reject notions of individualism in favor of collectivist thinking and that this is an incredibly healthy extension of a group understanding nature, instead of rejecting it.
Heck, Black people even have their own State of the Union (State of the Black Union), where yearly, more demands of tribute to the collectivist Black people of the nation are decreed for the white taxpayer to meet.
This laudable address is met with complete indifference to the philosophy espoused by one Ayn Rand, who viewed collectivism as a gross example of "racism":
"Racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism. It is the notion of ascribing moral, social or political significance to a man's genetic lineage - the notion that a man's intellectual and characterological traits are produced and transmitted by his internal body chemistry. Which means, in practice, that a man is to be judged, not by his own character and actions, but by the characters and actions of a collective of ancestors...Don't tell Black people that there is no such thing as a racial mind, for the collective push for Black equality and subsequent call for Black supremacy in all sectors of American life are powered by a unified desire for full Black inclusion and white exclusion from the public and private sectors.
Just as there is no such thing as a collective or racial mind, so there is no such thing as a collective or racial achievement. There are only individual minds and individual achievements - and a culture is not the anonymous product of undifferentiated masses, but the sum of the intellectual achievements of individual men."
This is healthy and in accordance with nature. It is as if a giant brain bug connects all Black people to the Unified Theory of Black Supremacy (UTBS) that puts the promotion of the collective good for Black people ahead of the wonderful words of Dr. Martin Luther King, who hoped for a society where "content of character mattered more than the color of skin".
Ha! This flies directly in the face of everything the UTBS ascribes to achieve, for if the content of ones character was the driving force for being judged fairly in America, white people who adopt non-white children and future NFL stars would be the Gods, and the Black people who engage in the new game TBW would be seen for the lack of character they display.
No, individualism is truly acting white and the Black person who deviates from the UTBS will be nothing more than the token Black and an enemy of the collective good. Remember - very few Black people attended the Tea Party protests.
Who is this Ayn Rand that white people find so worthy of admiration?:
What in the world? Silly abstractions that only white people find interesting and worth debating is the type of superfluous philosophy Rand peddled, and yet, she found many acolytes ready to promulgate the virtues of Objectivism and individualistic thinking.
Ayn Rand (pronounced /ˈaɪn ˈrænd/; born Alisa Zinov'yevna Rosenbaum; February 2 [O.S. January 20] 1905 – March 6, 1982), was a Russian-American novelist, philosopher, playwright, and screenwriter. She is known for her two best-selling novels and for developing a philosophical system she called Objectivism. Born and educated in Russia, Rand emigrated to the United States in 1926. She worked as a screenwriter in Hollywood and had a play produced on Broadway in 1935-1936. She first achieved fame with her novel The Fountainhead, published in 1943, which in 1957 was followed by her best-known work, the philosophical novel Atlas Shrugged.Rand's political views, reflected in both her fiction and her theoretical work, emphasize individual rights (including property rights) and laissez-faire capitalism, enforced by a constitutionally-limited government. She was a fierce opponent of all forms of collectivism and statism, including fascism, communism, and the welfare state."
Black people were on to her ruse and found all the talk of individualism a morose attempt at undermining the UTBS and derailing the goals of full Black inclusion into American life and the eventual usurping of political power.
White people still extol the virtues of this philosophy with predictably laughable results, as any attempt to remove collectivist thinking from the racial mind of Black people would paralyze the Black community and doom the entire Black race in America to the ash heap of history.
Those who follow Rand commonly ascribe the political philosophy of libertarian to their choice of party to support and these bumbling Ron Paul followers believe a return to limited government will answer the ills of American life.
Wrong. Imagine the consequences for the collectivist-leaning Black people of America were libertarians to inherit every seat in Congress and every sector and branch of the government of the United States (legislative, judicial and executive).
How many programs that benefit Black people in disproportionate numbers would immediately be cut from the Federal Budget? The United States Constitution would be restored to her former glory and yet, this document is inherently racist and the potential for the repealing of the 13th and 14 Amendments would be a goal of these acolytes of individualism.
Black people would find their collectivist nature completely submerged in a sea of individualism and the ability to shakedown companies for millions of dollars and quotas in hiring practices would be extirpated.
No, if Atlas where to ever shrug, Black people would revolt and collectively fight to restore UTBS from these Randian nuts.
Black libertarians are about as rare as the elusive white running back (and held in deified air by purveyors of individualism - nearly all white people - for their unorthodox philosophy) and this has been pointed out by Black libertarians:
"Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams come to mind as examples of black libertarians. I am pretty sure that the chairman of the NY Libertarian Party is black. But to be clear, I do not think embracing another vehicle of state power – another political party – is really the answer. After a rather long time with my head in the sand – or stuck in other places equally dark – I have come to an even more controversial conclusion.If the state that currently exists - and is constantly railed against by Rand-followers and libertarians - were to be abolished tomorrow, Black people would be placed in a perilous situation. This state as it exists currently, protects every institution of the UTBS and provides Black people with a support system and avenues to power that would be denied them in a merit-based, individualist world.
For black folk there is only one viable option – abolish the state. Embrace unvarnished, unfiltered, straight-up, full-contact laissez-faire libertarianism – not the party – the thought process."
Individualism might be an admirable idea in a homogeneous society, where group conflict is non-existent and a desire to work for the common good is ingrained in the national DNA and mindset.
However, the Black racial mind instinctively works for the collective good in the heterogeneous United States of America and they collectively fight for the UTBS. Deviating from this agenda is heresy in the Black community.
Interestingly, adherents of Ayn Rand and libertarian philosophy deem collectivist thinking disgusting and detrimental to the overall health of Black people. If only Black people would drop their goal of the UTBS and gravitate toward the glory of individualism:
"Blacks, more than anyone, should fear and reject the establishment that has impoverished their communities and their lives. Libertarianism is not a race-based, fruitball theory of black vs. white vs. brown. It is a framework for binding us all in our efforts to free ourselves from the oppressive state and its elitist rulers.What? Black peoples strength in the United States and the position of being sanctified by disingenuous white liberals is due to their collective strength. No one dares challenge a Black person, because the might of the Black community will come down upon with the fury of the God scorned.
Libertarianism is an effort to implement this philosophy across the board. It’s Us vs. Them – with “us” being free people bound by oppressive decrees and “them” referring to the state and its empowered totalitarians."
Thus, the current state of Detroit, Atlanta, Baltimore, Birmingham and other major cities and the reason why white people flee to whitopia's. In these whitopia's, white people are merely individuals creating a community where law and order thrive. Of course, in this communities, white people refuse to admit good times roll due to the monochromatic color of the towns inhabitants.
White people want a return to the rugged, individualistic era of the past that made the United States what is today. However, the United States is precisely the way it is today due to Black people believing the United States was an inherently racist nation that saw white people collectively fight for their own benefit.
Some people believe a restoration of individualism among Black people is imminent. Laughable. If this were to happen, the United States would cease to exist overnight. Think how many government agencies that directly and indirectly exist to help Black people.
Think about the high salaries that government employees make and the number of affirmative action-benefited Black people who hold these jobs.
A merit-based individualist society would jeopardize all the gains made by Black people in their collective maneuvering to implement the UTBS in America.
Ayn Rand is not for Black people in 21st America. Every Department and Agency of the Federal Government that helps Black people would be shut down. All the gains of the UTBS would be denied.
Stuff Black People Don't Like includes Ayn Rand for in their mind, collectivism is all that matters and adherents to individualist philosophies are adherents of genocide. Genocide of Black people in the United States, for the state as it currently exists maintains the health and well-being of Black people.
If libertarians or Objectivists got their way, the Black family would cease to exist and the UTBS would be history. Thus, Black people find these liberty loving white people the promoters of the Black genocide in the United States:
"Before he became an advocate of "black power," Martin Luther King said he dreamed of a day when all Americans would be judged not "by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." As we commemorate King's birth it is depressing to note how far America has deviated from the "dream," said a resident fellow at the Ayn Rand Institute.Black people laugh at these silly calls for an end to collectivism, for if individualism were to take hold in America then all the gains Black people have made will be erased forever. Atlas Shrugging indeed.
...King's dream can be realized, but this would require that Americans
- Recognize that individualism, not collectivism, is the antidote for racism
- Recognize that affirmative action and multiculturalism are based on racism
- Demand that when hiring, employers only consider character traits such as ability and honesty, not physical attributes such as skin color or gender
- Demand the elimination of all black, ethnic and women's studies programs at public universities
- Demand the elimination of all racial categories on government form"
