The elephant in the room

No, I am not talking about Rob Ford. For the past many years, and especially since Obama’s presidency, I have been reading of targeted black on white violence in the States, and this of a kind more akin to sport than home invasions and robberies “gone bad”, to use a euphemism.

It is so prevalent in so many instances that even the colour-blind national media are being forced to pay attention. When I use the term “colour-blind” I mean that the obviously racial motivation of the attacks is ignored.

I notice that nhe news readers says the police are looking for “two teenagers” rather than “two black teenagers” because, one, this insulates them from unpleasant charges of racism from noticing facts, and two, the audience knows that black teenagers are subjects of the search anyway.

The murder is described as a “robbery gone wrong”. The victim “was in the wrong place at the wrong time”. It was if lightning had struck, rather than the calculated (?) act of a criminal. And the racial aspect is wholly ignored, not just the black-on-white aspect, but the obviously anti-white racial motivation in many, many cases. That is the elephant in the room.

As Voltaire did not say, “to learn who rules over you, simply find out whom you are not allowed to criticize.”

As usual, Stuff Black People Don’t Like (SBPDL)  is way more trenchant than I would care to be. It makes me uncomfortable to read, not because I think he is wrong in essence, though he might be wrong in near-obsessive emphasis on the racial aspect, but because I fear he is correct in his analysis.  I am just waking up to the elephant, since I do not live in the States; the author of SBDL, Frank Kersey, has been pointing fingers at American black dysfunction for years.

“We do not live in ideal world; we live in a world governed by a concept known as Black-Run America (BRA), where the dysfunction of black people is explained away as merely being a symptom of pernicious, ubiquitous white racism.
It’s an ideology alone that could birth the conditions of Philadelphia in 2013.
And though those who profess to value life hate Dr. Gosnell, [an black abortionist in Philadelphia] it’s a city where black people hold no value of life (or regard for the same morality as that which birthed white civilization), which will ensure to ultimately terminate any civilization in Philadelphia. 
” The blight in Philadelphia, ever boarded up house and empty business, the violence found in the majority black Philadelphia Public School System, and the continued abandonment by corporations and white middle-class validates Dr. Gosnell’s concerns about the true sin and the insufficient system of support black people create for their children.

“This inefficiency on the part of black parents (don’t absolve black women – or white women – who have a child out-of-wedlock by a black male… no one forced them to have sex) in Philadelphia was the reason black Mayor Michael Nutter excoriated black youth for partaking in violent flash mobs in 2011 [Philadelphia mayor talks tough to black teenagers after ‘flash mobs’, Washington Times, 8-11-13]

The ruin has gone on for so long in so many once-thriving US cities, that people are reluctantly being forced to awaken from their politically-correct slumbers.
