Morris Dees and J. Richard Cohen, founder and president respectively of the Southern Poverty Law Center, offered an editorial that tried to parlay Dylann Roof's apparent sympathy for the former White regimes in South Africa and Rhodesia into a narrative that the alleged "White supremacy movement" is an international conspiracy.
Charles Blow followed up with an article that used a 2013 FBI report purporting to show that 48.5% of "hate crimes" are racially motivated, and that of those 66.4% are anti-Black, to bolster his contention that anti-Black racism is alive and well in the United States.
Even Paul Krugman left off his faux-economics pimping of Keynesianism for the day to pen a piece about the lingering "shadow" of Southern slavery.
The thrust of all three articles was to generalize Dylann Roof's delusions as an attribute of all Whites. This stance is consistent with the current liberal myth that "White supremacy" is the root cause of Black incompetence.
Allow me first to address Messrs. Dees and Cohen. There is no wide spread White supremacy movement, gentlemen, international or domestic. Yes, there are Dylann Roofs – far too many of them, I admit – but the vast majority of Whites are too busy trying to make a living in the disaster of the Muslim-in-the-White-House's economy to worry about racial issues. Besides, most Whites are comfortable with their Whiteness and have no desire or need to attack Blacks.
And if I'm a White supremacist, gentlemen, it is only by default. Africans were given the richest continent on the planet, with abundant minerals, rich soil, and a year round growing season. They had every opportunity to build keeled boats and colonize the world, to conquer Europe and make White people their slaves, to invent mathematics and airplanes and skyscrapers. For whatever reason, they didn't. We did.
And I'm tired of being told I should feel guilty because we did. It wasn't easy getting to where the White world is today. It cost a lot of sweat, a lot of blood, and a lot of tears. And I have a right to be damn proud of our success.
We are, incidentally, more than willing to share that success with the Ben Carsons and the Larry Elders and the Kevin Jacksons and with any other Blacks who will join us in the mindset and the effort that made and still makes that success possible. White success is a community effort. You've got to earn it. No one gave it to us. And we're not going to give it to you, because to do so would destroy it.
To Mister Blow, I should like to say that any "statistics" promulgated by the arch-racist Eric Holder is suspect. In Holder's mind, it doesn't even qualify as a hate crime unless it was committed against a Black.
And to Mister Krugman, please be advised, Sir, that slavery was not invented in Alabama. Until the industrial revolution, slavery was the only means of accomplishing large-scale projects. Slavery built the pyramids and the Parthenon and the Great Wall of China. Far from being "our nation's original sin," Southern slavery was simply an anachronism that lasted too far beyond its predestined abolition by the Case steam tractor.
In short, White supremacy is a naturally ocurring phenomenon that we Whites cannot control – even if we wanted to. It is a phenomenon that transcends race and can be realized by anyone who is willing to learn and apply the methods we used to accomplish it. And it is a phenomenon of which we are rightfully proud and for which we refuse to feel guilty!
But in the nebulous world of the New York Times, White supremacy is a red herring designed to camouflage the real cause of Black incompetence – federally subsidized sloth.
