A number of books have come out recently dealing with future prognostications. Will the 21st century be the “Chinese Century”? Perhaps the century India rises? Some books project that life in 2050 America will resemble a nirvana, peace in every state and county and a renewed vigor of the spirit and determination that once powered the United States in centuries past.
I’m not a pessimist, but few who pay attention to the financial news as it relates to the United States can feel positive about the future of the nation if present trends continue unabated.
Steady growth continues only in the government sectors, while the private sector is seeing jobs wither away at historic rates without any hope of ever returning. Continued mass immigration into this nation provides cheap, disposable labor that those unfortunate enough to compete with for employment opportunities find impossible given the hourly wage that illegal aliens are willing to work so that they too can have a slice of the American dream.
The offensive nature of whiteness will ultimately be stomped out as diversity initiatives and mandates have been incorporated into every college, university and corporation in the United States, in an all-out – total – war on Pre-Obama America.
It is fitting that the descendants of people who made this nation the envy of the world, a country that people from every Third World land strive to immigrate to at the risk of death, march willingly into a perpetual state of servility refusing to acknowledge what made this nation that proverbial ‘shining city on a hill’ in the first place.
Why is that people choose to live in places deemed “Whitopia’s” (areas that the US News and World Report deem the best places to live in America) and flee places like Atlanta, Baltimore, Detroit, Birmingham, Oakland and Tulsa?
In 21st century America, the one unforgivable sin is to be white, an unpardonable crime and act of treason against the rising order, a biological transgression against a world that has deemed such a genetic deformity to be the greatest mockery against humanity that can occur.
Yet it is lands inhabited by these petulant, pusillanimous people – many Disingenuous White Liberals - that the colored world flocks to, risking their lives in the process of receiving a “better” life at the hands of pasty patsies who welcome them into their nation, signing a Faustian Pact for temporary menial laborers but a long-term demographic time bomb.
Worse, Black people do little to protest the deluge of immigrants pouring into this nation, never realizing the threat they pose to the long-term existence and health of Black Run America.
Already Black people are demographically third behind Hispanics and white people in total population in these United States. At some point the Rainbow Coalition that unites Black and Brown against the alleged oppressor will crumble.
Oddly, in the 21st century America, the best minds educated at the top universities are expected to join Teach for America and become Crusading White Pedagogues. Instead of working on innovations in business, science, mathematics and technology, their task for the future is to impart as much knowledge on those who continually and habitually perform poorly on standardized tests (and virtually every other test imaginable and devised to measure and quantify cognitive ability).
Black students who perform poorly on these tests are still highly sought after by elite colleges, at the expense of disposable white students who might have outperformed that individual in all areas but the one that truly matters.
Untold trillions have been spent on scholastic programs and projects to improve the intellectual aptitudes of Black people and these large-scale efforts have consistently failed without any discernible improvements to justify sustained, prolonged investments.
The Bill Gates Scholarship, unavailable to white students who have been deemed unfit to receive such an illustrious honor due to their recurrent, ceaseless burden of incessant privilege, and the foundation that shares his name have embarked on a crusade to save America’s schools. Recently profiled in Businessweek, the entire operation was deemed ineffective.
All failures that blight the Black community originate from one source, white people. If a white person cannot be identified as the culprit for pervasive Black failure a suitable replacement can be found.
Indeed, our friends in Tulsa, Oklahoma blame the high rates of crime and murder committed largely in the confines of a particular portion of the city where one primary segment of the citizenry resides on heat waves. Crime, mayhem and murder – like the Reaper – knows no season but dispenses meaningless and gratuitous cruelty without regard for time nor dying people at The Chicken Hut.
Someone sent me an email recently asking what the purpose of this website is and why it is even necessary? The answer is simple: Go back and read every entry and you’ll find each littered with links to stories from across the United States that paint an accurate picture of life in 2010 America.
What is the point of this diatribe? Well, watching the under-appreciated 2002 film The Time Machine, the thought of what the 21st century has in store for America crossed my mind. If trends continue, it could simply be the one a certain 1997 comedy on HBO foretold.
On the same day that I viewed the Guy Pearce film, the following article from Men’s Fitness serendipitously found its way into view:
Why? McConaughey put it pretty well: "Cynics love to put their finger on disease before they put it on health. It's the easy way to go. Play the blame game: 'I got screwed, that should've been mine.' They're all dead-end answers. For me, 'Just keep livin',' as a creed and a compass, is about making the evolving choice, the forward-moving, life-giving choice."
If that quote made you wince, you probably have a healthy cynical streak. But I can say, as a guy lucky enough to interview upward of a hundred hypersuccessful people -- from billionaire CEOs and future Hall of Fame athletes to doctors and teachers you've never heard of -- that if successful people have one common trait, it's an utter lack of cynicism. The world owes them nothing. They go out and find what they need without asking for permission; they're driven, talented, and work through negatives by focusing on the positives. Being stupid, it took me years to figure this out, and being deeply cynical since high school, the moment was a pie in the face -- with a lead pie pan.
If you have read this website for some time, you might be of the opinion that a certain doom and gloom or pessimism is to be found in great abundance, accompanying each entry and that hope is but an emotion for fools or smart advertisers trying to sell you something.
Wrong. I am optimistic about the future. Though The Time Machine ends goofily and makes absolutely no sense, this one scene from the film is powerful – perhaps one of the most important glimpses into the unimaginable changes that were made between 1888 and the year 2000.
It is my hope that you begin to consider SBPDL as a chronicle of life in one particular epoch of time – though some might consider it a difficult time – that is coming to a fitting and stunning conclusion.
If you are just beginning the journey and have recently discovered this website, I encourage you to go back to the beginning, starting with the first entry. You will discover an odyssey of stories that would shock Odysseus himself and have ample evidence at your disposal that should cause deep thought and contemplation.
The world we live in 2010 is much different than the one that existed in May of 2009 when this website became operational. You will have a guide in the archives that shows exactly why Mein Obama’s approval rating is dropping and exactly why the power of BRA is fading with each passing day.
Indeed, an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal has been published that attacks one of the two foundational myths that helps maintain BRA’s supremacy. Penned by a Democratic US Senator, this op-ed equates to the finding of the Rosetta Stone, an unlocking of a world to millions that previously existed but no one knew the code to unravel it.
The code of course being courage, courage to speak about and the audacity to state boldly what is transpiring in 21st century America.
It will take courage to face the future, because so much seems to be out of our hands. We can’t change the past and for many, the present seems bleak, a perpetual cycle of darkest nights that refuses to allow good news to filter in.
Cynicism and courage are incompatible, enemies that negate action and necessitate sterility.
The future? Well, that remains unwritten. Though an overabundance of evidence can be found to dissuade you from maintaining hope, courage is the one formidable ally that you can always rely on.
This website did predict that the World Cup in South Africa would be a chaotic experience, though a heroic utilization of resources and outside riches insulated that embattled nation for one magical month.
Courage. That’s all that has ever mattered. So keep enjoying SBPDL, and thanks to those who have donated. It means a lot to know that people I may never meet appreciate the work that has gone into this blog.
It is nothing more than a chronicle of life under BRA – a reality that more and more people wake up to everyday. In closing, we can’t jump into a time machine and see the future and know exactly what is going to transpire.
No book can predict with absolutely certainty that the 21st century will belong to the Chinese, India, perhaps the European Union or maybe herald some other-worldly directional shift in Africa’s well-being.
Fretting about what you cannot change only hastens your decline, inducing a state of psychological paralysis, leaving you cynical. Courage is the only antidote.
If you can maintain that courage, imagine what you’ll know tomorrow. The future is coming and it's time to face it without cynicism.
