Baltimore is not an isolated incident. It is an oracle – a portent of what is to come. It is a harbinger of the impending harvest of the Black despair we have sown. Can it be prevented? Can we defuse the Black anger that threatens to inundate our society with civil warfare? While there are many proposals for solutions to what is distractionally called the American "race" problem, they all address the symptoms and ignore the problem itself.
Atavistic abolitionists like Eric Holder want to reward Blacks with immunity from responsibility – for their crimes, for their progeny, and for their own well being – as compensation for actions taken against their ancestors six generations ago. Congress, understandably, wants to throw more tax money at the "problem" so they can rake more money off the top when no one is looking. Planned Parenthood is intent on solving the problem by depopulating the Black community through abortion genocide, and the Farrakhans, Sharptons, and Jacksons want to steal more money from Whites and give it to Blacks.
All of these "solutions" are at best stop-gaps and at worst self-serving recipes for self enrichment. Worse, they exacerbate the problem by applying the very measures that incite Black despair and anger in the first place. If you want to solve a problem, you have to attack the reason the problem exists.
So, why are Blacks angry at the world? Is it Black poverty? Why are Blacks poor? Why has Black unemployment been twice what it is among Whites ever since the "War on Poverty" began fifty years ago? Is it a lack of Black education? Why are Blacks so poorly educated? Is it lack of incentive? Why are Blacks so poorly incentivized? Could it be because we are paying to keep them uneducated and unincentivized?
In truth, the purveyors of solutions to the "race" problem are far from interested in solving it. On the contrary, they are intent on prolonging it. Black poverty is cultivated by the United States government and other charlatans as a lucrative cash crop. Most American Negroes are oblivious inhabitants of what Starr Parker called "Uncle Sam's Plantation," where they are maintained at the edge of poverty so they can be sheared of their votes every two years and trotted out to justify even more expenditures of public funds "on their behalf" – or at least in their name.
If we can buy people out of poverty, why is poverty today – after having spent trillions of dollars to eradicate it over the past fifty years – twice as high as it was in 1965 when Johnson started his "war on poverty?" Because the objective is not – and never was – to eliminate poverty. The objective is to perpetuate it.
The Black community will never be healthy until we shut down Uncle Sam's Plantation and bring Uncle Sam's slaves into mainstream White America, where they can work and pay mortgages and raise kids like the rest of us rat-racers. And unless we are willing to solve the basic problem of the deliberate for-profit exploitation of the Black community, we will just have to get used to the smell of teargas and arson smoke.
