The Problem with PNP voters. In a 30 second video.

Based PNP.

It used to be that trying to obtain a better life for yourself in Jamaica was like a man running up a down escalator, not realizing that the escalator was running down. You had work ungodly hard just to get where you wanted to go. Well, what if you can’t even get to run up the escalator in the first place? An incident that took place at the People’s National Party rally in Half-Way-Tree on the night of the 31st of January, can be taken as what happens the escalator gets blocked.

The Jamaica Urban Transit Centre’s main Half-Way-Tree bus park is divided into an upstairs and downstairs section. When entering the conference for the first time, one gets of the (usually chartered) bus, walks to upper the section, and towards the centre of the city where the rally is situated. You may also walk to another upper section, the top floor, if you wish to easily get to your bus, or get to Molynes Road. That wasn’t happening about after about 7 in the evening. Police blocked off the stairs. Why? “Councilors and candidates only pass this point!” The upstairs section had then been refashioned to be used as a speech rehearsal room, among other things. So now that we were down, there was no way to get back up to where we were originally. Unfortunately, none of the supports that were with me seemed to get the symbolism of that particular event.

Notice that in the video, the supporters were calling the policemen “Labourites” (the main opposition party is the Jamaica Labour Party). It’s not that the councilors and candidates failed to create a secure area for them to congregate outside of the bus park. It’s not that they failed to realize beforehand that their supporters would need to go up- and downstairs, in the central location of the rally. What we have here is that the typical “die-hard”, not just PNP, voter fails to see that her political actions impact her personal life. The politicians up at the top know that they won’t be blamed for their actions, but that the police would be. They don’t see the need to curry favour with the supporters. They know that once there on top, they’ll stay on top. And that those on the bottom will stay on the bottom.

This is it. The final stretch. No, not for the election on the 25th of February, but final stretch as in final. For all intents and purposes, Jamaicans are now locked in three classes: rich, poor, and broke. Nobody talks about social mobility in Jamaica anymore. Yes, we do talk about education, Business Process Outsourcing jobs that are being created, and other such economic indicators, but those don’t matter. What does matter is that the 100 dollar bill can barely buy what it could 4 years ago, much more 8 years ago. And number of 100 dollar bills in one’s purse or wallet hasn’t changed. That is because our politicians are more focused on giving the IMF and multi-laterals interest on their loans than to be bothered with such silliness like sustained economic growth, stable exchange rates, and whatever. The type of PNP supporter that goes to such a rally simply cannot imagine a better life for themselves, not in the types of leaps and bounds that one sees in the history of nations like South Korea, or post-World War 2 Western Europe. The idea that your wallet can become fatter without having to stand in line at the Western Union or the MoneyGram is an alien concept to them.

What makes The System so perverse is that the typical die-hard PNP supporter cannot see how far he has fallen down the stairs. He doesn’t even realize that there was a staircase in the first place. Voting is more a social event done as a member of a tribe than a form of political action that is a necessity in a functional democracy for those attending these rallies. Tribal peoples don’t react to rational appeals. Splitting and ad hominem attacks are how they engage in political discussion. Those at the top of the staircase make their decisions based on how much more they will get from the next tax cut they will get this time around. After all, when you’re at the top of the staircase, its easy to catch the money when our political leaders decide to give out tax cuts and contracts. But how long the tribe will hold together when there’s no more space downstairs, or when the money stops trickling down is something I don’t want to be around to see.

Please Massa, Pick Me!

EcEssssss

I can’t seem to write anything about Jamaica without some American craziness comes up.

Some people are upset at the lack of non-whites being nominated for the most recent Academy Awards. Some people are upset that some people are upset at the lack of non-whites being nominated for the most recent Academy Awards. Some people, as can be seen below, just don’t give a fuck.

The problem is not the Award Show. The problem is the set of persons and control techniques that pre-process, program and manipulate the market and non-market forces that ultimately decide the allocation of scarce resources i.e. The System. That black Americans aren’t being recognized and rewarded by the mainstream society or start their own film industry is irrelevant. It is that they are wrapped up with The System, Happy in The System, and Happy with the System.

Take a look at the nominations for the 47th annual NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Motion Picture:

  • Beasts of No Nation (Netflix)
  • Concussion (Sony)
  • Creed (Warner Bros./Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer)
  • Dope (Open Road Films)
  • Straight Outta Compton (Universal)

Up top, we have the typical display of African child soldiers, and other such African savagery. But the black Americans will love it because Idris Elba sure can act! Fuckers never learn.

At bottom, we have Straight Outta Compton, next generation coonery with a side order of abusing black women.

Moral of the Story: Beat up black women, marry a white woman, don’t HIV, get a bunch of people to do the actual production, and you too, can be a billionaire. And no, the fact that Dr. Dre is a known woman beater is not why the headphones are called Beats by Dre. As for the rest of the group, well, who gives a fuck?

Last November the Fox TV rap video show Pump It Up ran a segment on N.W.A. in which it crosscut between members of the group dissing their former partner Ice Cube and a previous interview with Cube in which he bad-mouthed them. The members of N.W.A. decided that the clip made them look bad. On January 27th, Dre ran into Pump It Up host Dee Barnes at a record-release party in L.A.

According to a statement issued by Barnes, Dre picked her up and “began slamming her face and the right side of her body repeatedly against a wall near the stairway” as his bodyguard held off the crowd. After Dre tried to throw her down the stairs and failed, he began kicking her in the ribs and hands. She escaped and ran into the women’s restroom. Dre followed her and “grabbed her from behind by the hair and proceeded to punch her in the back of the head.” Finally, Dre and his bodyguard ran from the building.

Far from denying the attack, the members of N.W.A. insist that, as Ren says, “she deserved it – bitch deserved it.” Eazy agrees: “Yeah, bitch had it coming.”

“Coming like a motherfucker,” Ren continues, “she shouldn’t have done that.” Barnes says that she was against running the piece in the first place, but Ren disagrees. “She’s lying,” he says. “She had something to do with it. She sure was in that scene with [Ice Cube].”

Remember, these are our heroes

I won’t bother with the problems with the other movies, but still, even if black Americans were to create their own film industry, the films would still support the same Hollywood stereotypes, coonery, decadence, and erasure that is part and parcel of regular Hollywood. That is because black Americans are an integral part of The System, and it needs them as much as they need it. You want to leave The System, you have two choices – be black, or be an American. You can’t be both. There is no other way. Hey, you only hear about Jews, never Jewish-Americans, right?

Footnote.

One commenter on a blog confronted me saying:

satanforce wrote:
“Hahaha hahaha American blacks are so lame! You guys talk about being dignified and not begging, yet you want the Academy to give you all a pat on the head. And for what? The N. W. A. movie.”

Hahaha hahaha, my devilish friend, why don’t you put Jamaica on the map by starting a Jamaican film industry that matters? “Oh that’s right. Too hard. Have to get sponsorship and ads and all that. And you all can’t be bothered with that.”
Jamaican blacks are so lame! See how your argument can be turned back against you?

No Blacks nominated, big deal! Will Smith couldn’t get his Last Pharaoh film made, Danny Glover had no better luck with his Toussaint Louverture film. Two major black stars can’t get films made about black people who didn’t occupy stereotypical roles.

How about getting in touch with Mellody Hobson, George Lucas’ wife? I’ve read that they are worth a cool $5.1 billion. Oh that’s right, they want to keep that money and increase it, so no financing of black themed films for them. Mrs. Lucas is black, for those who didn’t know that.

She isn’t the only “black” person who controls a decent amount of cash, Oprah, Maggie Betts, the daughter of Roland Betts, “Founder and President of Silver Screen Management, Inc., which raised more than $1 billion in four limited partnerships from 140,000 investors to finance and produce over 75 films with the Walt Disney Company. Films include Beauty and the Beast, Pretty Woman, The Little Mermaid, and Three Men and a Baby.” And others seat on tons of cash.

Satanforce notwithstanding, some blacks in America are quite privileged and wealthy, and could do something if they deemed it worthwhile.
The thing that annoys me about posts such as this is the tendency to depict all black people as powerless victims.

I’ve mocked Lordy’s lame class analysis on more than one occasion here, but class explains far more than the race angle does

To which I replied:

No. You have missed the point completely. Jamaica doesn’t need to be “on the map” because we have nothing to prove to anyone. Blacks want to be accepted by the Oscars because they consider White institutions and values an objective, natural standard to which to aspire. No thought is put into why those standards are worthy of aspiration.

Putting “Jamaica on the map ” is no reason to start a film industry. However, if the problem is shifted to Industrialization in general, then the focus should shift to funding from blacks on an international scale. Similar to Amistad, I am sure people would see L’Overtute’s biography end masse.

My answer, is of course, a pile of bullshit. True, black Americans have not developed morality and values independent of The System. Neither has Jamaica.

Happiness in Slavery

Goes into playlist for an appropriate song

Time for some delicious cake

The recent release of the children’s book “A Birthday Cake for George Washington” has been met with outrage and derision, with what appears to be a depiction of American slaves a throwback to that of “happy darkies” cooning in in 1920’s era minstrel shows. In the book, two slaves of the first president of the United States, George Washington, try to figure out how to bake him a cake for his birthday. Both slaves, Hercules, and his daughter Delia, are based on real life slaves who were actually owned by George and Martha Washington. The tone of the book is joyful, Delia and George are constantly smiling, pleased that they have been able to please their white masters by cleverly figuring out how to bake a cake though they have ran out of sugar. None of the somberness or brutality of slavery is depicted, or even hinted at, much to the chagrin of the many readers. The story itself seems to have “ahem” sugar-coated the experience of slavery to an unacceptable extent.

The book, has since been withdrawn by its publisher.

The Big Picture(Book)

Let’s take a look at the makers of this……. rather interesting take on African-American slavery.

First up, we have Ramin Ganeshram, the actual author of the story. She has written three cookbooks, one novel, and one children’s book (see above.)

American born, half-Trinidadian, half-Iranian, history of organizational positions and television appearances, Food Network and CNN.

Now, here’s where things get interesting…. Next up, Vanessa Brantley-Newton. The illus-traitor.

Wasn’t expecting that. Among the books she’s illustrated are “One Love” and “Every Little Thing” with Cedella Marley, We Shall Overcome: The Story of the Song, and “Hoola Hoopin’ Queen.” Her art style –

s

Finally, we have the editor, Andrea Davis Pinkney:

On the right is her husband, who seems to illustrate most of her books.

OK , won the Coretta Scott King Award in 2013, writer of books like Sit-In: How Four Friends stood up by sitting down, Pretty Brown Face, and Sojourner Truth’s Step-Stomp Stride. Not exactly a negropean sell-out, I would say.

So okay, what the fuck went wrong here? Of course, they are bunch of New Blacks who simply sold out so that they could get a bigger slice of the Master’s leftover pie, as well being the typical bunch of sellout black women who would sell their momma for five-inches extra hair to make their weaves with. Well, that’s the easy answer. We don’t do easy answers here.

Revenge of the Tiger Mom

Here is part of Davis-Pinkney’s response to the angry commenters and protestors, also posted by Bentley-Newton and Ganeshram:

Vanessa also took great care in her research, which revealed that Hercules and the other servants in George Washington’s kitchen took great pride in their ability to cook for a man of such stature. This why Vanessa chose to portray them as happy people. They were not happy about being enslaved, but there was joy in what they created through their intelligence and culinary talent.

The problem with the above statement, as well as the rest of the post, is that Pinkney confuses Happiness in Slavery, with Happiness with Slavery. Children simply do not have the intellect, depth of knowledge, or ability to separate a situation where one is happy with being slave, with someone coping with being a slave, especially if this is their first encounter with chattel slavery. But the fact is explanations don’t matter, these ladies have already done their job, and their cheques have already been cut:

Ka-ching. Bitches.

The System, and those who have turned the System to their advantage, have wants.

  1. The publisher wants to be able to sell to every conceivable market. Including places like Texas.
  2. Black Americans want to be able see themselves in a historical accurate light, but don’t want to pay the price associated with buying from a smaller (black-owned) publisher.
  3. The System mediates, unfairly of course.
  4. You get “A Birthday Cake for George Washington”, where Hercules is a “servant”, and a “head chef.”

The writer, illustrator and editor all have their share of responsibility, but their track record shows that this book was an anomaly, not the norm in their careers. Besides, the System would have had just found someone else. So let’s look at that aspect of the system. And to understand it properly, we need to look at Amy Chua.

Those for those of you who don’t know, Amy Chua (rap name Tiger Mom) rose to fame on the back of a Wall Street Journal article-turned-book that has her psychologically and emotionally abusing her children. She defends this as being a superior type of parenting passed down from China. Now, the important part I want to get here is from the Wall Street Journal excerpt:

They wonder what these parents do to produce so many math whizzes and music prodigies, what it’s like inside the family, and whether they could do it too. Well, I can tell them, because I’ve done it. Here are some things my daughters, Sophia and Louisa, were never allowed to do:

• attend a sleepover

• have a playdate

• be in a school play

• complain about not being in a school play

• watch TV or play computer games

• choose their own extracurricular activities

• get any grade less than an A

• not be the No. 1 student in every subject except gym and drama

• play any instrument other than the piano or violin

• not play the piano or violin.

I’m using the term “Chinese mother” loosely. I know some Korean, Indian, Jamaican, Irish and Ghanaian parents who qualify too……………… Western parents try to respect their children’s individuality, encouraging them to pursue their true passions, supporting their choices, and providing positive reinforcement and a nurturing environment. By contrast, the Chinese believe that the best way to protect their children is by preparing them for the future, letting them see what they’re capable of, and arming them with skills, work habits and inner confidence that no one can ever take away.

Her children will love the System, and the System will love her children. Notice that whether it’s the excerpts, or the article, there is no talk about such silly Western things like “morals” or “values”, or “cultural history” or any of that silliness? Sure, the children will play only the violin or piano – but why just the violin or piano? Those aren’t Chinese instruments? What does the piano, violin, or not being in a school play have to do with “preparing them for the future, letting them see what they’re capable of, and arming them with skills, work habits and inner confidence that no one can ever take away.”? This is clearly not parenting to raise children. This is parenting to raise college applicants. Those musical instruments are prized by college admission boards and barely anyone else. Anesthesia takes great skill to play, but the standard is Bach and Beethoven – not Burton. But why is that the standard? Who decided that classical piano should be something should be admired by college application boards? Who cares? That’s part of how the System recruits its members. You just have to be willing to jump through some very difficult hoops – no questions asked! Kinda like Boxer the Horse from Animal Farm –do whatever the System tells, you, it will work out in the end. Right? Right? Happiness in The System does have its rewards. After all, not everybody gets to appear in the Wall Street Journal.

But say the System finally catches up to you, and, unlike someone who is Happy with the System, you have an internal set of morals and values, whether you acknowledge it or not. You haven’t completely sold out. Yet. You don’t have to be Happy with the System, but while it has you, you can do everything in your power to be Happy in It. What alternatives are their? If you want your work to reach mainstream acceptance, you have to battle with the System. Perhaps one day you may get away from, but you have to deal with issues one at a time. Again, it’s easy to throw stones from the sidelines, you might even get some books withdrawn – but that’s the thing. The books are getting published in the first place. The people who actually profit from this sort of book, do not want to employ people who play bass guitar instead of piano for their college admissions. They do not want people who believe that instilling “skills” and “work habits” are not the main values that parent should instill in their children. But, if people are willing to compromise, then they will be willing to give you a place at the table. But they won’t be choosing the meal. They can help with the cooking of course, even help with making the menu, but step to the side when the time is right. And this especially applies to certain people. Like Kissinger to Nixon, Condi Rice to Bush/Cheney, and Obama to Larry Summers and the banking industry. Sure , they won’t get their Forty Acres and a Mule, but Thirty pieces of silver is still better than nothing.

Frances Cress Welsing was crazy. Get over it.

The microphone represents the white man’s desire to possess the black man’s penis, as can be seen from the one large white ball at the end of the long black stick. By holding the mic, he can then symbolically prevent his genetic annihilation by passing on his seed through the black man’s genitals. That’s why there’s so much interracial cuckold porn online. Also, by Dr. Cress-Welsing putting the microphone to her mouth, the white man can visualize himself making her submit to him. Just as planned.

Francis Cress Welsing was crazy. Do not attempt to deny this.

The Best of the Isis Papers

Now, some of you may have read elsewhere that Frances Cress Welsing that she was a singularly unique black intellectual, who has proposed an analysis of “color confrontation” that explains worldwide white supremacy in a scientific, falsifiable way, based on an empirical method. Be not deceived. Her work is not science, it is comedy. Here are just a few excerpts from her book, “The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors”:

Why do white people love dogs so much?

For example, the dog rather than God proverbially is considered Western man’s best friend. This is contrary to the beliefs of skin-pigmented peoples regarding their relationship to God. This Western concept of the dog as man’s best friend is linked to the mythology of the founding of Rome. According to this mythology, Rome was founded by two orphans, Romulus and Remus, who were suckled by a wolf. Both the wolf and the dog are canines.) These two presumably white infants are said to have founded the state that began Western Civilization and culture. When this is decoded, Romulus and Remus are the symbolic representatives of the early albinos who were abandoned by their Black mothers in Africa as genetic mutant defectives and in the process of their northward migration for survival, were “left to the dogs” – suckled by wolves. This decoding explains the worship and love of the dog (canine) in Western civilization…… And, is this love and worship of the dog reflected in the mirror-image of the words “God” and “dog” – even at this “advanced” stage in the expression and evolution of Western civilization and culture? (page 27-28)

On Homosexuality:

At another level, white male homosexuality may be viewed as the symbolic attempt to incorporate into the white male body more male substance by either sucking the penis of another male and orally ingesting the semen, or by having male ejaculate deposited in the other end of the alimentary canal. Through anal intercourse, the self-debasing white male may fantasize that he can produce a product of color, albeit that the product of color is fecal matter. This fantasy is significant for white males because the males who are able to produce skin color are viewed as the real men. (page 47)

On Smoking (remember, non-white people don’t smoke.)

This same sense of maleness-deficiency in the white supremacy culture causes the behavior patterns of smoking either small white phallic symbols called cigarettes, large dark brown or black phallic symbols known as cigars, pipes and the long brown cigarettes called Mores. (Or does it mean Moors?) These are sucked, swallowed, puffed and otherwise bodily ingested, ultimately leading to self-negation through potential cancer-caused deaths. Also, it should be noted that for the white male collective, the greatest sense of male power comes from smoking the large, dark brown, phallic smoking objects- cigars and pipes. Thus, cigars are given at the birth of a son! (page 47)

On Food and Christmas:

The most favored drinks are all dark brown in color: coffee, tea, coke, beer, and whiskey. These are all symbolic of the blood or genes of Jesus. A favorite meat is steak, which comes from the bull or cattle. (See Chapter 7.) We need not mention the hot dogs, half smokes and all the other varieties of sausages. Also, are not bulls castrated to make them taste better when eaten? Are not football players fed steak before they attempt to go out and capture the large brown balls? (See Chapter 10.) I further understand that “bull’s balls” are eaten as delicacies in some bars and other eating establishments in the white supremacy culture. (page 75)

Likewise, the symbolism in the major holidays of the Christian religion is supportive of my interpretations. At Christmas, the tree is one of the most important symbols. The Christmas tree is, in its abstracted form, a cross- the symbol of the Black male genitals. (See Diagram V.) First, the Christmas tree is chopped down in the forest. Then it is taken home. In the U.S., when the Christmas tree is decorated, colored “balls” are hung on the tree. When the tree is taken down and burned, the “balls” are first taken off. Then all can dream of a “white Christmas” and a surviving white Christ.

Mmmm, Chocolate……

The favorite candy is chocolate candy (chocolate comes mainly from Africa), preferably with nuts. Recall chocolate kisses and all of the myriad chocolate candy bars. Nuts are also important in the white supremacy culture. Some have focused on peanuts and become millionaires and the most powerful persons in the world. Finally, given the symbolism behind such eating practices, it follows that oral sexual practices would be a favorite in the white supremacy system/culture. (page 75)

Chapter 10 is a goddamn gold mine

On Pool and Bowling:

In the game of billiards or pool, there are eight colored balls, a white ball and a long dark stick placed on a table. The object of the game is to use the long stick in causing the white ball to knock all of the colored balls under the table. The last colored ball knocked under the table is the black ball. When the game is over, the white ball is the only ball that remains on top of the table with the long dark stick. Then the game starts again.

Bowling is also an interesting ball game in the white supremacy culture. Usually, this game is played with a large black ball being rolled forcefully down an alley where it is expected to knock down 10 white pins; the central pin is referred to as the “kingpin.” Clearly, the bowling pins are white and, in shape, are phallic symbols. In other words, the pins are white phallic symbols that are knocked asunder by a heavy black ball, over which the bowler attempts to gain mastery. In symbolic fantasy, the bowler sees himself as master and possessor of the larger black ball and thereby in control of the harm it can bring to the white male genital apparatus (the white pins). (page 135)

On goalposts and nets:

It is of symbolic importance that the large brown basketball is thrown into a circular opening (the basket- usually a white net) that can be viewed as a symbol of the white female vaginal orifice. Similarly, the large brown football is kicked through a white upright opening (the goal posts) that can be viewed, again symbolically, as the uplifted legs of a white female in the act of sexual intercourse. Perhaps unconsciously the white male psyche considers here that the white female’s preferred sexual choice is “tall, dark and handsome.” In tossing or kicking the large brown balls into the white net or the white goal posts, the white male is able to fantasize that he is satisfying the white female maximally via an identification with the Black male and the brown balls, which the white male – in play – believes he now possesses or controls…. Thus, the Black male is their true standard of real manhood and genetic power – the ultimate controller of the Black “ball.” As white males attempt to master the placement of these large brown “playing” balls in “openings,” their activity can be viewed as attempts to resolve the dilemma of their self-questioned manhood. Their manhood is always in question because of their genetic recessive status compared to the genetic dominance of the world’s majority.

On golf:

Interestingly, golf, the most “elite” of all of the ball games in the white supremacy culture, is played with a long dark-colored stick or “iron” held between the legs. This iron is smashed against the side of a very small white ball. The object is to knock this small white ball into a hole in the black earth (black mother earth- the Black female?). By attempting to place his small white ball in the black earth, using a long dark stick, again the white male is attempting to identify with the possession of the genital equipment and privilege of the Black male, whose rightful partner is the Black female. If this pattern of play in golf does not qualify as the very essence of male genital symbolism and neurotic conflict in the white male psyche, as formulated in this specific discussion, then nothing does. Again, is it only a coincidence that the major event in golf competition should be called the Master’s Tournament? Is this not a fitting title for the most elite of all ball games played by the masters of the “master race”?

Leaving the balls behind here’s what she has to say about the ladies:

I emphasize here that Black men are oppressed because ultimately, it is male muscle mass that oppresses a people, and only male muscle mass has the potential for achieving liberation. If the men of a people are oppressed, the women are brought under oppression- as they are dependent on their men for protection and the muscle mass to liberate a people and defense. Women do not have the muscle mass to liberate a people and protect the young. Women develop the young but their men must provide the protection and the security apparatus

It should come as no surprise that the paranoid conspiracy theorist who sees all kinds of strange connections in even the most mundane statement is a comedic archetype in Black American media

Now, according to her, the reason why normal human beings see all of the above quotes as utter complete nonsense is that we are looking at symbols on a surface level. But Cress-Welsing proposes that our brains function as a typical computer with something like a Von Neumann architecture. In this model, a set of shared symbols located in human collective unconscious that is manipulated on an unconscious level by said “brain-computer.” If we claim to be doing science, then we can only deal with the physical world, and the Jung’s collective unconscious is as far from physical as one can get. Where, in the brain, or in the physical world, is the collective unconscious? Abstract symbols cannot affect physical changes in the brain. Take cocaine. We know how cocaine affects the brain’s neuro-transmitters, leading to addiction. But a symbol is by definition abstract, its interpretation is dependent on context and culture, not some universal collective unconscious.

For example take her drawing for the male genitalia:

I was initially skipping through my copy of the Isis Papers when I first saw the above. The first thing that occurs is not male genitalia, but, in fact, it’s complete opposite. What I thought I had initially glimpsed was an abstraction of the female reproductive system on learns about in high school. The fallopian tubes seemed a bit shortened, but the eggs and uterus were there for all to interpret

In other words, there is no universal symbol system that is understood by all human beings. Even if there were, symbols can have no physical effect on the brain, as brain is not some mental abstraction but a physical, biological organ that is affected by physical processes. Yes, some symbols may have some hidden meanings. But like the man said, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

It’s just a cigar people! Nothing to see here. Keep it moving!

Physics Envy (PE) + Non-Intelligible Sophistry (N-IS) = PEN-IS

Leaving aside the more laughable examples from her book, The Isis Papers, we must now look at the method to her madness.

  1. Any time a white person has sex with a non-white person, the whiteness is removed
  2. Continued interbreeding of whites with non-whites will lead to the extermination of the white race
  3. Therefore, the white man will do whatever it takes to destroy non-white races, as well as to prevent interbreeding among blacks and whites

This whole three-step fuckery pyramid rests upon the unspoken assumption of the One-Drop Rule. She must therefore ignore the countries where the One-Drop Rule does not apply. The fact that in Brazil, if Lawrence Fishbourne had straight hair and a professional job would be considered white cannot occur to her. Instead, her theory, with regards to the One Drop Rule aspect, is simply a case of a Black American foisting their own peculiar situation as the base case for the world. But why doesn’t she only consider that the whiteness is removed – why not the blackness? Enter Melanin Theory. Apparently, the less melanin one has, the less able one is to absorb energy and signals being emanated by the universe. This makes people with less melanin less empathetic. Or something:

As mentioned in the Color-Confrontation theory, white-skinned people, who lack any substantial level of permanent melanin in their skin, historically have contrasted themselves with all people in the world who have substantial, recognizable and permanent levels of melanin…

This has been refuted by people brighter than me, but let’s walk down this path anyway.

White skin is a form of albinism. There is no difference, microscopically speaking, between the white skin of a white person and the skin of a person designated as an albino.

We are given no evidence, cited no papers, detailed no experiments. The assertion that whites are a type of albino is simply stated. She says that albinos and white have the same skin “microscopically.” Then why not shows a picture comparing the two. After all, the book is full of bullshit diagrams, why not include one that supports your point? But wait, it gets better!

My central thesis here is that white-skinned peoples came into existence thousands of years ago as the albino mutant offsprings of black-skinned mothers and fathers in Africa. A sizeable number of these Black parents had produced, rejected and then cast out of the community their genetic defective albino offspring, to live away from the normal black skin-pigmented population with the awareness of their rejection and alienation (as in leper colonies).

The white tribe’s eventual migration northward, to escape the intensity of the equatorial sun of the Southern hemisphere, left the albinos eventually situated in the area of the world known as Europe-now recognized as the home of the white tribes.

Again, no evidence other than an interpretation of the Adam and Eve story that sounds like it was devised by Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud while they were smoking from a LSD laced bong. No archaeological evidence is given. No historical evidence of albinos being expelled is given. These albinos trekked all the way from Africa to Europe, yet no evidence of albinos along this trek is found and stated. The facts are as follows; the people who arrived in Europe were dark-skinned, light skin as an adaption
that came later. Dark skinned Africans settled Europe 40,000 years ago. Albinos may be despised, but they were also regarded as “semi-gods” – this is even quoted by Cress-Welsing herself!

If you go on Wikipedia, whenever you see something that is not backed up by a primary source. You will see the familiar [Citation needed] superscript. Well that can be used to describe this entire set of papers The Isis Papers – [Citation needed]. At no point in the book, is any specific gene named. We are never given specific dates for when the Mass Albino Migration to Europe took place. Unlike Freud and Jung, she does not perform any interviews or psychoanalysis on the white people she is so fascinated with. To see how the “brain-computer” works, how the unconscious recognition of symbols is translation of actions, she puts no one in the Magnetic Resonance Imaging Machine to find this out. In other words, she has no experimental evidence for her theory. Therefore, she is not doing science. In fact, her ideas on recessive and dominant genes sound like they came from some B-movie or videogame.

But what she’s doing sure sounds like science, don’t it? I mean she describes her work as “Unified Field Theory Psychiatry”, she speaks of “brain-computers” and what-not. But the fact that she uses science sounding terminology borrowed from physics and computer “science” does not make what she is doing science. Rather it represents the same modern-day hucksterism that one sees on late night infomercials, business consultants and New Age wierdoes – an appeal to scientific methods to justify their ridiculous ideas.

Do you want a revolution? Apparently not.

Let’s say that the Cress-Welsing, in spite of her silly “science” and nonsense analogies has a deeper point, a deeper point that is just poorly explained. The main point being, that white people have a biologically ingrained inferiority complex towards non-whites, which results in their creation of social, economic and political structures that destroy non-whites, both physically and mentally. What makes this “theory” seem revolutionary is that she takes the usual racist critique of the dominant race being socially and economically motivated, to racism being a direct result of biological imperative to avoid annihilation. But even this fails 0n most fundamental ways.

The history of Western Civilization is not one of whites killing and dominating non-whites. It’s that of whites killing themselves. Hundred’s Year War, Thirty Years War, Rome’s Social Wars, the Napoleonic Conquests, World Wars 1 and 2 and everything in between. Even in the Cold War, those big nuclear missiles weren’t pointed at Africa – they were pointed at the whitest places on Earth. When non-white people do factor into Western Civilization, it is not as the main course, but the side dish. France and England didn’t conquer Africa and India to wipe out non-white people. They used them as manpower to fight their European continental wars, and to use as fresh markets to hawk their goods to from the European continent. Even the native populations that got wiped out in the “Age of Discovery” died from lack of immunity to diseases, or the overwork and general sadism of the “Discoverers” – not some systematic genocide plan akin to the Nazi Holocaust.

But whether you take out the fundamental point above, or incorporate the rest of the book, which is basically saying that white people are evil because their skin is white, it really doesn’t matter. I mean, with this information, what action can you take? If racism is not a product of nurture, but of nature, then white people can never change. Society can never reach any progressive goal that sees race based prejudice as a mere anachronism. If white people cannot change from wanting to destroy blacks, then isn’t the next step Race War?

I read the writings of Cress-Welsing and her friends, and can’t help but thinking about the writings and actions of mathematician/terrorist Theodore Kaczynski. You read his stuff and see him mailing out his little bombs and shit and you know that those actions are never going to change society. And deep down Kaczynski knows this as well. Same thing with Cress-Welsing and her Melanin Theory followers. What is their solution tom the problems facing black people in America? Have stable families. Seriously. There is no serious examination or strategy for the solution to mutant albino problem. This is just one set of East-coast American blacks espousing their own warped personal experience to other blacks, as if it were a universal experience useful for all blacks. All it is, is a hyper-conservative set of beliefs that will do nothing for blacks but leave them scientifically and socially illiterate. Maybe, just maybe, these ideas and the people who espouse are genuine, but have been held back by more mainstream authorities. Or maybe crazy is just crazy.

Anyone knows where the future went?

When you dream of the future, what comes up? One picture is one of a high-tech, high speed, high powered computers, cars and spaceships. Normally we want to, you know, make our dreams come true, to make the future reality. If that is normally the case, why the hell do we insist on pissing away our opportunities?

Let’s at the first type of future – the dream of a better society brought about by numerous scientific and engineering innovations. Now, the decline and reversal of scientific innovation and progress has been well documented elsewhere. But I am not talking about anything like nuclear fusion, rotating space colonies, human cloning, or anything like that. I just want the simple shit. A lot the ideas, and concepts I’m thinking of are those that were spoken of in the 1990’s and early 2000s, stuff that can be done with proper project management skills, access to preferential capital, a morally upright technocratic elite and full corporate history that includes proper documentation of processes. Some of these will require the ability to push projects through without recourse to public ignorance opinion, and the willingness to abruptly cancel one’s own existing product line, with the associated capital. A lot of this however, will require skill and imagination that seems to have been systematically removed from skilled tradesmen, project managers, engineers and scientists.

Look at small nuclear reactors. Not even nuclear fusion. Just small nuclear reactors of 300 Megawattsth at most. They should be transportable, suitable for mass manufacture, and be meltdown resistant. This would make them be ideal for off-grid work like drilling oil shale (LOLIRONY!!), airports, military bases, or developing countries, especially island nations that have to provide their electrical needs with oil-based electrical grids. It could be as system like this one. As you can see, it’s been on the business plan binder stage since 1995. Never mind the few dozen or so that have been proposed since the middle ’00s.

How about aerospace? Again, I don’t need anything much, no Single-Stage to Orbit spaceplanes, hypersonic air-breathing passenger flights – none of that. Let’s look at some Mach Six air-breathing missiles. Well we have BrahMos……and not much else. This is something that was done before.

Again, I’m not asking for the creation of a titanium spaceplane, which has to have its engine and fuel tanks lined with gold to work. Yet in terms of aerospace development, the move to Mach 6 and above has been a backward, not a forward one. The Russians may have been making supersonic anti-ship missiles for years, but the Americans actually got a Mach 6 missile back in 1980. To wit:

X-51A test 4 (the final one) was successful.   4 minutes burn followed by 2 minutes coasting-down flight.  Hydrocarbon-fueled scramjet burn at Mach 5.1.  Compare that to ASALM-PTV flight test 1 of 7:  accidental acceleration to Mach 6 on hydrocarbon fuel at only around 20,000 feet.  ASALM-PTV was an ordinary ramjet, not a scramjet.  This was done back in 1980.

Such performance has failed to repeat itself, despite numerous attempts with X-43, X-51, HyFly, Hyshot, RATTLRS and God knows what else.

“Oh come now, Satanforce, how can you ignore the changes in computers? Moore’s Law will save us! You yourself are using what amounts to a handheld supercomputer many times more powerful than your original 2005 PC. Never mind that fabulous laptop you’re typing this on. The you from 15 years ago would shit himself at the mere power oozing forth from the screen of your Dual Core Sandy Bridge!”

Umm, really? Then why the fuck does Word 2013 on that Dual Core take longer to open up than Word 2000 on my old piece of shit 800 Megahertz Pentium 3? Being able to download porn in 4K resolution is not technical advance – it’s a distraction. Besides, most of our x86 processors are just Pentium 3s with some extra stuff added on. Exciplex LASERs have improved, not computer architecture. Oh, and we had better ideas for phones and such gadgets back in the 00s anyway

Nano-nonsense notwithstanding, there is there really a good reason why we could not have flexible electronics, complete with flexible asynchronous processors and foldable screens by now? Nobody really gives a fuck about performance hits, people would rather be able to fold up their iPads into iPhones.

I know medical technology hasn’t progressed to level where we can do easy tissue engineering and nerve regeneration, but can why isn’t there any technology available to double my penis length? Last decade’s medical technologists stumbled upon Viagra and Caverject, women can double their ass and titty size and re-tighten their vaginas, so why can’t I come out of a cold shower with a 15 inch penis?

And so it goes. Much of the technologies that at the start of the Millennium we assumed would be a part of our modern society simply do not exist: In-Vitro meat, cheap carbon-fibre reinforced polymers, widespread gene and stem cell therapy, super-heavy wing-in-ground effect vehicles with 500+ ton payloads, stratospheric airships for 5G communication, caseless and plastic cased small arms ammunition, powered exoskeleton, reusable launch platforms worth a damn, and the list goes on.

Is the constant push more and better technologies merely the modern-day equivalent of pyramid-building. Perhaps, but there are real needs for much of these things. In-vitro meat than can be grown cheaper than farm animals would certainly help in the case of countries with a calorie deficit. Stem and gene therapy can also help with groups that suffer from certain diseases, like sickle-cell anemia or breast cancer.

While there may be several reasons as to why technological advancement between 1970 and 2020 pales in comparison to that of 1880 to 1960, I think they will all come down to very simple reasons , with the usual complex answers. To quote myself:

stuff that can be done with proper project management skills, access to preferential capital, a morally upright technocratic elite and full corporate history that includes proper documentation of processes. Some of these will require the ability to push projects through without recourse to public ignorance opinion, and the willingness to abruptly cancel one’s own existing product line, with the associated capital. A lot of this however, will require skill and imagination that seems to have been systematically removed from skilled tradesmen, project managers, engineers and scientists.

The above quote describes the solution to the failed processes that come out of a corrupt type of thinking. While this type of think is most usually associated with the denizens of Silicon Valley, the main ideas have so permeated Global institutions that they are taken for granted, even though a cursory examination of these ideas will show that they have no basis in factor reality. In the technical world, much of these are ideas that glorify Computationalism – the idea that bits are more important than atoms, that simulation is as good as reality. There is also the influence of neo-classical ideas in economic thinking, which include the Washington Consensus and trickle-down economics. Combine these two, and you get a worldview that favours control and mass communication , instead of the creation physical assets or heavy industry, control of inflation instead of full employment , stasis over change.

Or maybe all is right with the world. Maybe I’ve been staring at my screen for too long Maybe I just dream too much.

Agenda: Week of the 16th of June

Well, it looks like my last post has gotten a hell of a lot of coverage.  Its a shame that it had to come to that type of topic though.  Anyhow, lets what I can do next week.

First, is a report of my most recent jog, the one that I took early this morning. Was I able to finish my jog, or was did the unspeakable happen to me? The answer may surprise you……..

After that is going to be a review of Gangs of Jamaica – The Babylonian Wars by Thibault Ehrengardt. Is it going to be something in the order of Born Fi Dead like Laurie Gunst…or will it  be something else? Find out later this week.
