Black America Fists Detroit: That Joe Louis Statue



The Joe Louis "Black Fist" statue in Detroit: the perfect symbol and monument for Black-Run America (BRA)
Whenever a Black individual triumphs over a white individual, this event is seen as a repudiation of white racism, a blow to white supremacy, and a lesson administered to white society. It is a milestone that all Black people believe is somehow representative of their combined might, an indication that Black people collectively have achieved some shining victory, the rectification of some previous wrong. It must be celebrated.

Conversely, this is not the case for white individuals. For white people to take pride in an achievement of one of their own is the ultimate manifestation of racism.

Joe Louis – an individual Black dude – knocking out a German in 1938 in a boxing ring somehow nullified the belief in “Aryan Supremacy.” This moment was a watershed for all Black people, just like every Black “First” – i.e., first Black person to balance a checkbook, etc. – which, strangely enough, the commemoration comes long after the actual discovery or achievement has been recorded by a white individual (or member of another race. 

That it was largely the contributions of German scientists working with white American engineers that hurled the Apollo astronauts to the moon on July 20, 1969 – sadly, the only Black contribution to this mission was the janitor who cleaned up after NASA’s scientists and engineers were done for the day – isn’t worthy of discussing.

The Detroit that Black people inherited after the Black Riot of 1967 – the same Detroit that white people fled from only to rebuild in the suburbs – was a veritable symphony, the magnificent collective glory of white individuals working together to build what was deemed “The Paris of the West.”

With the election of Coleman Young as the first Black mayor of post-riot Detroit, the symphony that white individuals collectively composed has become a noisome cacophony, as individual Black people have collectively defaced all there that was once good and grand. 


Black people were handed a completed opus with Detroit, a concerto of unprecedented beauty and grandeur, all meticulously composed and arranged by white people. Well, it wasn’t a complete work of art. One can’t forget that Black people had already rioted in 1967 and burnt down large segments of the city, never bothering to clean up the mess or rebuild what they never built in the first place.

You see, it was Black individuals engaging in a chorus of disharmony that brought the symphony that was Detroit to a screeching halt. The melancholy state of Detroit in 2012 is only the expression of the citizens who live there, the combined result of hundreds of thousands individual Black people in America’s most homogenous – and Blackest – big city.

Where once the white citizens of Detroit built resplendent monuments inspired by the architecture evidenced in the ruins of Ancient Greece and Rome – reminders that though time and neglect are forces that can’t be stopped, beauty and lore can linger even in stones cut thousands of years ago – Detroit’s new Black rulers elected to build a fitting monument to the era of Black-Run America (BRA): a giant Black fist in honor of Joe Louis.

Sports Illustrated commissioned this sculpture by putting up $350,000 dollars for its erection, and it has come to symbolize “Black power” in a city where the truest display of this phrase has come to fruition in all its absolute finality.

The Los Angeles Times reported this in 1986 about “the fist”:

"I know money is tight, but you would think the city could have afforded a whole statue," says a bewildered Barbara Johnson.
"It's terrible. I don't see the symbolism in it at all," echoes Renee Leblanc.
Complaints like those are already pouring in here over a stark, abstract memorial to Joe Louis, the late heavyweight champion, which is to be officially unveiled today.
Already dubbed the "fist" by disgruntled downtown office workers, it is just that--a 24-foot, 8,000-pound clenched black fist and forearm, horizontally suspended in midair beneath a pyramidical steel A-frame in the middle of downtown Detroit's busiest intersection.
Exudes Brutal Force
Produced by acclaimed sculptor Robert Graham, who stirred up Los Angeles in 1984 with his sculptures of headless torsos for the Olympics, it seems to jut through the cityscape with the same kind of brutal force Louis used to knock out Max Schmeling.
In a city that conjures up images of vacant buildings, unemployment lines and gray skies, the fist also seems to accentuate the toughness of Detroit's past and present.
But for many in Detroit, it isn't enough. Joe Louis, who grew up here and held the heavyweight boxing crown longer than anyone in history, was perhaps Detroit's greatest hero; the city's largest and most modern civic arena already bears his name.
Both before and after his death in 1981, black Americans have lionized Louis for being among the first major black figures to smash through racial barriers in the pre-World War II era.
Local Reaction Swift
So some here were surprised and a little disappointed that the city wasn't getting a more traditional Louis monument. And even though the bronze sculpture, just installed last week, was visible for only one day before it was covered with a tent in preparation for its official unveiling, local reaction has been swift and generally negative.
"I can't say anything negative about Joe Louis, but I think most of us would rather have a whole statue," says one city employee.
Other downtown workers say they think that the work looked too much like a symbol for militant black power and worried about the impact that kind of symbolism might have in a city still deeply divided along racial lines.
"It is billed as a tribute to Joe Louis, but it looks like a black power fist," notes one. "If it is a monument to Joe Louis, why isn't there a boxing glove on it?"
A giant Black fist, built as a monument in a city where the concept of “Black power” erupted into a conflagration that ultimately convinced white people to abandon the metropolis… you can’t get more poetic than this.

In 2004, USA Today reported that the statue was vandalized, publishing this revealing quote in the process:
The fist was erected in 1986 as a gift from Sports Illustrated to celebrate the centennial of the Detroit Institute of Arts. At the time, it evoked a variety of reactions.
"It almost obviously says black power," said Richard Marback, an associate professor of English at Wayne State University who has written about the fist. "People said that is the appropriate way to honor Joe Louis. Here is a black man fighting against racial oppression: He knocked out Max Schmeling, the Nazi boxer."
Wait, the statue representing “Black power” was vandalized? What happened? What could possibly have transpired for people to be so malicious?:

Two suburban Detroit men pleaded guilty Thursday to defacing a downtown monument honoring boxing great Joe Louis.
Brett Cashman, 45, and John T. Price, 27, could face up to five years in prison at a sentencing hearing scheduled for May 14.
But the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office expected Circuit Judge James Chylinski to approve its recommendation that the men serve 30 days in jail and the remainder of their sentence on probation, and also pay $1,000 in restitution before sentencing, spokeswoman Maria Miller said.
Cashman and Price were charged with malicious destruction of property after using mops to swab white paint on the 8,000-pound sculpture depicting the arm and fist of Louis, who grew up in Detroit.
With credit for three days spent in jail after their Feb. 23 arrest and 21 days served on house arrest, the two residents of Washtenaw County's Superior Township actually will spend just six days behind bars, said Cashman's attorney, Marc Beginin of Birmingham.
"He's satisfied with (the sentence) — otherwise he wouldn't have agreed to it," Beginin said of Cashman. "They did what they did, and they're willing to take responsibility for it."
Price's attorney, David Rosenberg, did not return a telephone message left Thursday afternoon at his Southfield office.
The monument is a tribute to Louis and considered by many a symbol of black power and triumph over injustice. But Cashman said earlier that he and Price targeted the fist because of its "violent imagery" and because it was an inappropriate symbol of a city bedeviled by crime, guns and drugs.
Police found photos at the base of the statue of two white police officers shot to death during a Feb. 16 traffic stop. Their suspected killer is black.
"This regrettable event could be used to divide the community," Prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a statement. "We should learn from this incident and use it as another step that will bring the community together."
Cashman and Price have insisted that their action was not racially motivated.
Louis, who lived from 1914 to 1981, moved to Detroit with his family when he was a boy and is a hero in the city. The Red Wings play in a downtown arena named for him, and the sculpture, called Monument to Joe Louis but known to residents as simply "the fist," enjoys a prominent location along Jefferson Avenue.
Defacing the statue? What about the crime of what happened to the infrastructure of the city once Black people took over? The buildings and monuments erected by a different people – those whites who sought refuge in the suburbs – have been defaced and neglected by Black people, who look upon the “Black fist” as the true embodiment of the city’s new image:

Detroit's Brown Bomber shattered the myth of racial supremacy with one decisive fight. After suffering a humiliating loss to the German fighter Max Schmeling in 1936, Louis trained tirelessly for a rematch two years later, and defeated the Nazi poster boy in just two minutes and four seconds.
The sculpture that honors him is a 24-foot-long, defiant right-handed punch, suspended above Jefferson Avenue.
Former Detroit Mayor Coleman Young once said that Joe Louis stood for everything that was good about Detroit. I can't help but agree. Joe Louis is the symbol of all that I love about this city.
Lots of people hate this sculpture, saying it glorifies violence. The statue was installed in the late 1980s, back when Detroit was known as the nation's murder capital, and the damage from the '67 riots still felt fresh.
If one fight can shatter the myth of “racial superiority” (whatever that means), what do you call the combined Black individual contributions that were the primary factors in the downfall of Detroit?

Black-rule was abysmal for Detroit. It was a total failure.

Realistically, the only thing to show after nearly 40 years of Black people running Detroit – after Coleman Young was elected in 1973 – it this statue of a Black fist.

It is a reminder that Black people fisted the Detroit that white people left behind. To employ a musical metaphor, Detroit represents a symphony that Black people couldn’t perform once they picked up the instruments and tried to play.

No one will ever dare suggest that the Black residents of Detroit are at fault for the city’s condition. And no one will openly imply that it was Black individuals who collectively defaced an entire metropolis handed to them once white people were forced out. 

If Joe Louis knocking out some Nazi pugilist helps destroy the belief in racial superiority, can we agree that the abysmal failure of Black-rule in Detroit abolishes the belief in equality? After all, it was individual white people working as a community that raised Detroit; and it was individual Black people working as a community that razed Detroit.

The Joe Louis “Black fist” statue in Detroit is the finest expression of BRA in all the land. The entire city of Detroit has been spoiled by the feckless hands of Black-rule (remember, Detroit is 89 percent Black), and yet this statue stands resolute, a silent, stoic reminder that Black people can never be blamed for their failings whether collectively or individually.

That is the essence of “Black power” in BRA, which ensures more cities will share similar fates and inevitably be Detroit-ed.

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania anyone?

Kersey,

Your posts on the collapse of Detroit, these grim, grim posts, are transfixing. The roof is burning around our ears.

BTW, I got another one of those weird senses that this post seemed to evoke a different literary voice. As you know, I pride myself on having a rather deft literary ear.

Dunno. Maybe it's just me.

Nevertheless, keep on keeping on. Like I've said in the past, you may one day be considered in an historical context.

Maybe the statue should be renamed as the "Fuck You Whitey Statue."

Black people only have so much to be proud of and they pretty much lost boxing.

It is arguable that Manny Pacquiao is regarded as the worlds best boxer and the Klitchko brothers reign at Heavy Weight. You could not get three people so different than the typical black boxing champion.

Blacks love to lord over Whites and others about their athletic superiority and with so many good athletes of other races showing so strong of late it seems to me blacks are losing that.

Genetics aside if all you do is eat junk food(thanks EBT) and play video games when you are not out committing crimes or impregnating ho's it's doubtful you can excel at sports.

That is one of the big three pillars of black pride. The other two of course is music(cRap debatable)and entertainment, specifically comedians( all of whom are interchangeable and rely 100% on race based humor).

The more blacks are coddled the sadder they become. Statistics do not lie in this instance Jim Crow statistically was better for blacks.

Imagine higher literacy, entrepreneurship, and lower out of wedlock births. The left loves to blame Jim Crow on black dysfunction as well as institutionalized racism but it was actually better for blacks and Whites.

With out athletic achievement blacks have little left. Now they can rely on Most Destructive as a point of pride.

You thank Whitey would at least get a "Thank You" for subsidizing our destructive little pets. Without all our tax dollars how successful could they be? It's hard to cause mayhem and destruction without a full belly.

I think its obvious. We can never live in harmony with black people. We are simply too different from them.

If Detroit could just totally be left in black hands -- no help from whites, no bail-out from the state nor the feds, just completely left to black genius and ingenuity in which case Detroits demise is assured, then the utter dependence blacks have on whites, their inability to survive without white support will be apparent. The black fist will become a hand with palm turned upward expecting the next handout from whites to blacks which is the real state of affairs.

I'm glad to hear the guys that painted the fist only got 30 days. I suspect there is a whooooole lot more to that story.

Like they discovered in South Africa, the only way to live in a multi racial society is to be armed in a legal and lawful way.

I think concealed or open carry in states that allow it is the only sensible way to go.

Why does anyone even care about sports? These were just kid's games or a way for students at boy's schools to get some exercise and diversion. Pro sports don't really serve any purpose except to make money for the people involved in the business.And btw, didn't Max Schmeling beat Louis at first and wasn't there something wrong with him when he lost the next fight with Louis? He died a few years ago at the age of a 100.Anyway, you can't compare Louis to a Rocky Marciano who never lost a fight.Like most negroes Louis died broke and even Schmelling who became friends with him later in life gave him money to support himself.

Max Schmeling was not a member of the National Socialist party, according to Wikipedia (I know, I know...):

"...While Schmeling cooperated with the German government's efforts to play down the increasingly negative international world view of its domestic policies during the 1930s, he was not a member of the Nazi party. In fact, it became known long after the Second World War that Schmeling had risked his own life to save the lives of two Jewish children in 1938..."

Joe's fist is a stereotypical.

Maybe we should call it the 'Chuck E Cheese' syndrome.

I note that many blacks are constantly in a contentious fight mode. Anytime you're around a group o blacks, assume you are at a brawl about to happen.

To blacks who seem to lack the brawl gene: Make babies. To the rest, not so much.

Let's remember. Here's video of the cafeteria brawl at Alabama State U:

PK,

Spot on when it comes to blacks being the first long after someone else.

My favorite example (and one you might look into) is the great black inventor Garrett Morgan.

"He was the first to patent the traffic light" say the revisionists. Never mind already existing patents on traffic signals with railroad lights, Garrett patented a signal decades later.

We still use his T-shape traffic lights that are never seen in photographs or movies.

No.

Coincidentally, Garrett Morgan is accredited with being the first black in Cleveland to own an automobile. Yet he never saw this great traffic signal he invented around the streets in which he drove.

It seems there are two genre of black monuments. In the case of the Joe Lewis statue, an ungloved fist which fits in the 'stick it to whitey' class, or the recently unveiled monument to the black member of Lewis and Clarks' party with the 'whip marks' map on his back, which falls under the 'whitey be keepin' us down' genre.

Thanks for the link.

re: Garrett Morgan . . .

His facial features suggest he is mulatto. His straight hair is due to a concoction of his invention.

From what I've read his traffic signal was never used; never appears in photos from that era. He had an inventive mind, no doubt. His self-extinguishing cigarette is creative, but impractical due to high production costs.

I think you may have forgotten about NASSA . But because of racist whites the general public never got to know about real black contributions to the space race.

The day Whites, as a race, tear down that black power fist and the MLK-as-Mao statue on the mall, is the day I will believe this nation still has a future. In the meantime, we are taxed for an "African-American" museum on the mall, and Whites dig the first, ceremonious dirt while Obama and the Wookie watch from on high.

There was an article buried deep in the local metro section last week, about another zoning change dispute for the local school district. This one was buried rather than highlighted, of course, because of the forbidden racial angle. In a suburb that's routinely derided as Republican, racist, conservative, wealthy, and White, we learn of an elementary school that is now down to 34% White, the rest black, Hispanic, and a few Asians. I checked out Schooldigger and saw the evidence of that school's rapid decline (the Katrinites' being brought into local apartments dramatically accelerated it). This, in an area with houses ranging from $300,000 - $850,000 (please note, that buys a LOT of house here in Texas). No wonder the two main private schools in that area are growing dramatically, even with tuition around $15,000 a year.

The demographics at my son's private school are also changing rapidly; we're either going to have to move him somewhere even more expensive, or homeschool (which he doesn't want and which would drive me literally insane). All the neighborhood public schools (elementary, middle, and high school) are barely 50% White. They are perhaps 10% black at present, with the bulk of the students Chinese and Indian. While my husband continues to protest we can't afford to move, he sees the demographic degradation daily . . . blacks everywhere when we used to see almost none. Every time I see an out of state plate (often NY or Illinois or CA), there's a black driver. They come to Texas for the jobs, of course. I want to leave because there aren't any Texans left. Perhaps my husband could spend the week in town and we could move far, far out so that daily life is not such a constant, unpleasant, irritant.

I've been avoiding the web and making few comments these past weeks, so depressing is the daily news. Everyone grovels, everyone makes excuses, and the news is the same old, same old. If I were more hopeful, I might think the fraud and already decided outcome of the faux-elections this fall would open a few Whites' eyes. If I were hopeful . . . which I'm not.

Sheila:

I am in no way telling you what to do. Everyone makes their own way. But Texas is such an easy state to homeschool in--meaning the requirements are the most lax in the nation. I'm a Georgia mom and I've done it. Don't put any high pressure on yourself about moving or anymore financial stress with private school. We've been public schooled, private schooled, and home schooled here. Do some research on homeschooling. Find a group in your area--they are great for support. Think of it this way: if you do it for a year you will have saved one years worth of tuition. Maybe you could afford to move then. Your son is better off being around you for that short amount of time than in a school that is having to be careful with diversity. I don't care what anyone says--you never get what you pay for in private school. The talk on the play ground, at the lunch table and in the bathrooms is the same as it is in the hood. One year is very short in yours and your child's life. 365 days, 12 months. You may even end up going for another year!

"If it is a monument to Joe Louis, why isn't there a boxing glove on it?"

Asked by a melanin-deficient but synaptically active individual, no doubt.

In actuality, what's missing is not a boxing glove, but brass knuckles. Not that Joe didn't manage to set an example for so many modern day Black athletes.

In this case, it is not his lack of gloating over White opponents in the ring or his soft spoken demeanor in general. What Joe did to set the bar was spend or give away some $5,000,000 in career earnings. Extrapolated from 1949 value, that figure represents over $45 million in 2010 money.

Clearly, Iron Mike must have felt compelled to emulate Joe Louis the same way that Muslims imitate Mohammad.

But Cashman said earlier that he and Price targeted the fist because of its "violent imagery" and because it was an inappropriate symbol of a city bedeviled by crime, guns and drugs.

What could be more appropriate? "The Fist" is a warning, just like any MLK Blvd. street sign, as in; "Whites not welcome here."

Joe Louis died in Las Vegas after spending his last years as a greeter for what was likely a White-owned casino. His inability to manage a multimillion dollar fortune is mirrored in the total incompetence exhibited by Detroit's current crop of Black politicians who are driving that city straight into the ground. This, even as they nervily demand another $150 million to piss away on what has become their own private "Africa Town".

Please don't stop reading and posting here, Sheila. Your insight and imput are very valuable. I do understand how you feel. I get quite upset sometimes about the terrible predicament in which white Americas find themselves.

But we have to do what we can. If we lose, then we will at least have the satisfaction of having done everything in our power to forestall disaster. And if we win, don't you want to have the personal satisfaction of having contributed to that victory?

I understand how horrible it is to experience the seemingly inevitable blackening of your life. And you must be so anxious about your son. But that's all the more reason to fight your depression as much as you can. Your son needs you do to so.

What buoys me up during the darkest times is recalling how so many thought the USSR would never fall. (I myself thought the Chinese would topple it eventually.) But fall it did; in a short time, it simply imploded. That gives me hope that something similar is at least possible in BRA.

A fist? How appropriate.

In Johannesburg and other areas of SA the black 'wilding' youth do something they term 'jackrolling' which is violent, random gang rapes of women (often in front of the husbands/boyfriends) for sport and also 'status'. Many women are raped so violently they are permanently disfigured and disabled, often going through the rest of their life withe a colostomy bag.

In many parts of Africa, the term 'rape culture' is indeed embedded into the beastly behavior of these people and even accepted as a 'norm'. Where are the Leftists human rights groups? Where are the Women's rights groups?

truf: The second Louis/Schmeling fight was a lot like the Ali/Holmes fight and the Holmes/Tyson fight. Max was 9 years older than Joe. Kind of like the Johnson/Jeffries fight, too.

I believe that there is a correlation between the effects of Affirmative Action and the recent rise in the number of successful White athletes in Black dominated sports. Now Blacks have government jobs and set aside slots in the private sector so a lot of the better specimens have something to turn to besides sports. At the same time, Affirmative Action has limited the employment prospects for many of the better White specimens and they are looking to sports as an alternative to working in second tier positions for which they would be overqualified.

I used to work out at the same gym as Scott Ledoux and he once told me the reason there were so few Whites trying to make it in boxing was money. He had been boxing for many years prior to his fight with Larry Holmes and the most he had ever made from a fight prior to that match was $1200.

In those days there weren't many White guys who were willing to get punched in the head for a decade for chump change while waiting for an unlikely opportunity for a big payday.

I think that mindset is changing.

There are quite a few biological difference between blacks and ALL OTHER RACES (I'll skip the bell curve for now since that's been played to death and pisses blacks off).

So...

How Neanderthal are you?

"Then in May 2010, when the Neanderthal genome was published, came the remarkable discovery that nearly all modern humans – everyone except Africans – carry an average of 2.5% Neanderthal DNA."

Could this be why so many other human beings have risen above blacks and why blacks are so often at the lowest rung on the latter of human ingenuity and societal development?

Just throwing that out there...

Anonymous (13, 2012 3:23 AM): Why does anyone even care about sports? These were just kid's games or a way for students at boy's schools to get some exercise and diversion. Pro sports don't really serve any purpose except to make money for the people involved in the business.

At day's end, with BRS (Black-Run Sports) in place, this is the question that needs to dominate White thinking. Sports play such an infinitesimal part with respect to the preservation of White culture that they could be jettisoned entirely without any significant loss.

Compare that to pop or (c)rap "music" managing, somehow, to elbow out classical music from America's collective consciousness; if you wish for an instructive example of what we truly cannot do without.

In that vein:

… Detroit represents a symphony that Black people couldn’t perform once they picked up the instruments and tried to play.

… An apt comparison if ever there was one. Especially when one considers the scope of musical achievements as pertains to Whites versus Blacks.

Compare:

Hubert Laws with Jean Pierre Rampal

George Benson with Larry Corryell

I have seen the aforementioned artists perform together, in those duets, with dramatic contrasts in their abilities.

Paul Kersey's classical music analogy more than passes the smell test. Which, sad to say, many Blacks do not.

Were you aware that the outskirts of Dresden contained a factory that produced submarine optics? As in, U-Boat periscope lenses.

While Dresden was Germany's equivalent of Hiroshima ― a largely demoralizing target ― the horrific war crimes of Germany and Japan made it such that neither deserved any respite from Allied reprisal.

Did Dresden or Hiroshima really provide any moral negation for the Nanking's Rape or the death camps of Auschwitz? Face the question squarely. In the same vein, do you honestly think that, in the process of halting terrorism, we will turn into barbaric al Quaeda terrorists simply by conventionally bombing a few major Muslims cities out of existence?

Remember, the miracle of peace is that it is almost always obtained through war.

Since 1996 we have enjoyed the benefits of genetic modification to improve farming productivity. The most useful genetic modification is a ‘Roundup Ready’ seed that allows the use of an effective herbicide in planted crop fields. I have often thought of a ‘Civilization Ready’ genetic modification for blacks. Literally everyone would benefit. We know it would work since the natural experiment of interbreeding results in a group with more potential for civilized behavior as the shadow of blackness is replaced with light. What would a country without ebonics, rap, racism, anger, victimization, affirmative action, gerrymandering, indiscriminate violence, set-asides, social promotions, widespread STDs, drop outs, black history month, BET look like?

Max Schleming wasn't a die hard Nazi in any way, but of course that would be inconvenient to the black power narrative of the black man defeating racism. He refused to be part of several Nazi propaganda events, a very dangerous thing to do in Nazi Germany- plenty of people had died for far less.

Max Schleming was wounded fighting in the battle of crete and mustered out of the service, he lost pretty much everything he owned after ww2- He got a job working for Coca Cola, and within a few years had his own bottling plant and eventually was an Executive in the company.

Schleming was friends with Lewis, and helped Lewis financially towards the end of Lewis' life. Schleming also helped pay for Lewis' funeral.

Max Schleming was a good man, honest, and diligent. He never forgot a friend, and he always tried to do the right thing. He hid two Jewish children in his apartment during the Berlin purge- an act that would've gotten him killed had he been caught. He was a good man in a bad time, the world could use more like him.

But you'll never hear about that in BRA, because black man defeats white man is all that matters to BRA...

Max hid two jews in his saving their lives.

Of course "the fist" has nothing to do with the boxer, and everything to do with black power, a triumph over the eeeeevil whitey.

As people have noted, there is no boxing glove on the fist, nor is there a complete statue of the boxer himself.

It is sad to see people not call a spade a spade and dance around this issue, afraid for their careers, social standing and indeed their very own lives and their families.

I am so glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read that.

DWLs like to claim that race doesn't matter.  If that's true, DWLs shouldn't object if we "genetically modified" the Black population by paying them to be sterilized and letting Black women gestate White embryos (pref. IQ 120+) if they want babies.  It's only a social construct, so why not remove the visible traces in favor of making CULTURES blend?

Opposing this sets them up for the conclusion "so, when you say anti-racist you really mean anti-white."  Can you hear their brains asploding already?

Sheila,

I can understand the depression. When I realized a few months ago that the US society as it now stands can not last very much longer I've been pretty 'low' almost daily.

While I can't tell you exactly what to do you MAY want to take some time off from the net for a few days. It's not the these sites are wrong, it's just to much unpleasent truth can be stressing.

If someone finds out they have cancer, it would be depressing too, and while they should see what they need to do for treatment, they may need to find hobbies or activies to take their mind off the cancer just to stay sane.

I wouldnt say stay away, but I've taken a few days off WN sites because the taunting challenge we face is depressing as hell. Best I can say is that whites have gone through horrible times before (ie, the black plague which is ironic considering what we now face).


Ultimately whites will prevail, and eventually whites will be allowed to grow and thive, and be proud, and not fear black barbarians. For now most whites have misplace empathy for blacks, who are subhuman and incapble of empathy, hence the amount of crime and rapes they commit, and the way they excuse such behaviours.

Caiden said...

W75, there is a limit to what we can do for now, but I would suggest people use the internet to make their opinions known.

When I see a race realist related story on yahoo I make comments and give thumbs or thumb downs. I've started to make comments on IMDB and youtube, where I tried to remain race nuetral but finally started to make comments. Will this wake everyone up? No, but it does make our opinion more mainstream.

It gives those of us who can see but aren't aware how many other there are that they are not alone. With luck it gives the sleeping fools a reason to think, we do blacks excuse black crime, or why are people more upset with whites using the n word and not blacks setting white kids on fire.

Freedom of speech is, for now, our greatest weapon.

Hie thee to the eastern part of Germany, Dresden preferably. And, yes, that sailing ship on the left is made entirely of ivory, right down to the sails and ensigns. All of the hull rivets, cannon and rigging are pure gold. The work is just one of a thousand jaw-dropping pieces in das Grünes Gewölbe (the Green Vault), a primary destination for world travelers and just one of a dozen or more fine museums in Dresden.

Imagine having your coffee served to you by someone who is White and doesn't have numerous tattoos or facial piercings. The same goes for grocery shopping and just about anything else you can think of. Prague, in the Czech Republic, is rather nice too for all the same reasons.

I predict that this current fad of adopting pet Negros of foreign origin will eventually result in one or more of them finally figuring out that they are nothing more than a political fashion statement and how their celebrity adopters love them, maybe, like a favorite cat or dog.

This will result in some extremely pissed off mud hut mindset Black teenagers strangling or stabbing to death their sugar daddies and mommies such that, quite suddenly, this entire practice will be dropped like a live grenade.

But not until a couple of these unbearably smug Out of Africa celebrity adopters get to take the dirt nap.

Don't be so sure of that. Skinny has been the Hollywood imperative for many decades. Pregnancy doesn't fit the "skinny" requirement very well. Nor do anorexic starlets tend to have very healthy reproductive tracts.

When taking in combination with the moral authority conferred by sweeping up some hare-lipped Somali nomad sprog into your (on camera) munificent celebrity arms, the allure of this practice isn't going to fade anytime soon. Especially not when diversity and multiculturalism continue to be crucial watchwords and societal imprimaturs at the very highest levels.
