From the top, the language is ultra-genteel, cloaked in the Orwellian Newspeak of the New World Order. Terms floated are multiculturalism and ethnic diversity. Chairman Mao reminds us that practice is primary. In practice, these are terms for a physical, economic and political repression of most European-descended Americans. Except for the Plutocrats among the Ruling Elite, of course, who devised the scheme for cheap labor.
Further down the totem pole we have Harvard Professor Louis Gates. Yeah, he’s the same guy who had the run-in with the Cambridge police officer. He still uses genteel language but is demanding reparations for slavery. In other words, Gates wants money from folks who were never slave owners–nor their ancestors–to be put in his pocket though he was never a slave.
Moreover, Gates is a Left-Gatekeeper for the Liberal Establishment which collaborated with the Republicans in establishing the Free Trade Regime. That has practically destroyed the best hope for the African-American community, namely the Black industrial working class. Now more & more of that same African-American community are being reduced to Lumpen status.
It’s in the growing class of Lumpens at the bottom–usually politely referred to as the Underclass–where we see the greatest degree of open race baiting in the country. Here we find the underground gangster rap and even open web sites glorifying black on white crime.
Far from race baiting, the typical white response is to grin and bear it and move further out into the sticks. Or their wealthier members setting up shop in what are euphemistically called ‘gated communities.’And they’ll vote in their majority this fall for the GOP; a quiet way of saying no.
“Most recognize that once was a Civil Rights Movement has become a Shakedown Game. Political Correctness keeps the lid on–but everyone knows the score.” These are the words of that old curmudgeon, Fred Reed, and he’s spot on.
The race baiting is one-sided.
