He would understand that 400 years of white\nAmericans taking care of blacks has fostered a dependency mindset that\nis well-nigh unbreakable, especially when our misleaders continue to\nspend their time and our money encouraging and facilitating that\nself-defeating relationship.\n\nNegroes were first brought to these shores in chains in 1619 — arguably\nthe most horrendous event in American history. The crime was committed\nfor the same stupid reason that white South Africans allowed blacks to\npour into their relatively empty country until the latter conquered it\nby sheer numbers (with the help of white race-traitors in other nations)\n— because the whites were too lazy to pick their own cotton or clean\ntheir own toilets. The result has been national and racial suicide for\nSouth Africa, and the United States is following suit in slow motion.\n\nWhile slaves in America were forced to work, they were not required to\nfend for themselves in obtaining the basics of life. Food, clothing,\nshelter, medical care, and other basic necessities were supplied by the\nmaster, much as food stamps, welfare payments, Social Security, public\nhousing and housing vouchers, and Medicaid/Medicare are provided today\nby an all-powerful state that laughingly pretends to be utterly unable\nto quash such "entitlements" or at least hold down their incredible\ncosts. Just as when Negroes were chattel property, whites continue to\npay for the basic necessities of blacks — who today enjoy the status of\na privileged, "protected" class.\n\nAt the same time they demand "equality," and even super-equality through\nracial preferences, black "leaders" deliberately cultivate an attitude\nof helplessness within the black community as a way of avoiding all\nresponsibility for the wretched conditions in which their followers\nwallow. Those Negroes with enough brains and drive to make something of\nthemselves are also smart enough not to be led by rabble-rousing race\nwarlords such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Their success — outside\nthe artificial advantage of affirmative action and other quotas — proves\nthe falsity of that paradigm.\n\nThe "helplessness" whine is a continual mantra, even though it repels\nmany who might otherwise buy into the "white guilt" fantasy. It not only\ndemeans the very people the whiners are claiming to defend but also\nundercuts any rational arguments — if there be such — for treating the\naverage Negro as the actual equal of the average white.\n\nThree recent cases in point:\n\n\nKatrina and Rita\n\nThe national showcase for black dependency and incompetence was\nHurricane Katrina. Scores of thousands of Negroes deliberately ignored\ngovernmental pleas, and then governmental orders, to leave New Orleans\nbefore the storm hit. The city's incompetent black mayor failed to carry\nout the most basic provisions of his own evacuation plan (but did manage\nto get his own family out). Then, after the long-warned disaster\noccurred, an incredible mass wail went up that the government had\n"abandoned" these people, had totally "failed" them. (Blame naturally\nwas centered on the feds, and particularly on the hated George W. Bush,\nbecause the idiot mayor and the nitwit female governor were both\nDemocrats, the party that has been foremost in deliberately keeping\nblacks dependent for generations.)\n\nPersonal favorites among those broadcast wailers include a hefty black\nbrood mare who stood with her children on a highway in Louisiana and\nsquealed, "Nobody come along and tol' us where to go," and two former\nresidents of the Superdome who complained vehemently to Fox News about\nconditions there. Asked if they had been fed, one replied angrily,\n"Yeah, they fed us. But we didn't get no hot meals!"\n\nEven more revealing was the coming of Hurricane Rita a few weeks later.\nArmed with fresh (and endlessly repeated) knowledge of the disastrous\neffects of inaction in the Katrina debacle, the usual suspects easily\nmanaged to perform down to expectations. KOMO-TV of Houston provided a\ntrue public service by spotlighting the spectacle there.\n\n"I done called for a shelter, I done called for help. There ain't none,"\ndeclared a black woman in front of a check-cashing store a full two days\nbefore Rita was due to strike. According to KOMO, "more than 100 people,\nall of them black or Hispanic, fretted in line" to exchange checks for\nmoney — because they were apparently unequal to the responsibility of\ndealing with banks and ATM cards.\n\nEddie McKinney, 64, described as having "no home, no teeth, and a torn\nshirt," was drinking a beer outside a pawn shop. "I thought about going\nto Dallas, but now it's too late," he said. "I got no way to get there."\nBut Eddie was optimistic: "A nice white man gave me a motel room for\nthree days. Just walked up and said, 'Here.' So my buddy and me will\nstick it out.... We got a half-gallon of whiskey and a room."\n\nIt just don't get no better'n that, does it, Eddie? As long as the white\nman is always there to help, of course!\n\n\nThe tobacco buyout\n\nThe federal government is now in the process of passing out more than\n billion in compensation for eliminating the exclusive right to grow\ntobacco that it granted for free to certain farmers in the 1930s. For\nthree generations, those men and their descendants have been guaranteed\nan income through the "tobacco quota" monopoly, and now they stand to\ngain yet another obscene windfall. All of these quota holders were\nnotified of the impending buyout and given a deadline for signing up to\nparticipate in this latest orgy of financial outrage.\n\nBut black tobacco producers, whimpered John Boyd, president of the\nNational Black Farmers Association, needed extra time to sign up for the\nprogram. It wasn't enough that black quota-holders got the same\nnotifications as all others and that the feds advertised the giveaway\nthrough farm publications, newspapers, and broadcast outlets in rural\nareas. Boyd claimed that only about 60 percent of his alleged 12,000\neligible members had signed up — compared to 90 percent of all eligible\nparticipants in Virginia, for example.\n\nWhen the Department of Agriculture refused his demand for a 30-day\nextension of the sign-up deadline for stragglers, Boyd complained, "The\ndepartment has chosen not to help us." Holding Negroes to the same rules\nas whites was "insensitive," according to Boyd, and he threatened to\npursue "legal remedies" — but never did.\n\nObviously unaware of the inherent comedy of the statement, Boyd assured\nhis followers that his organization would "continue to fight for equal\ntreatment"!\n\n\nBlack AIDS\n\nA 1994 study by the Centers for Disease Control found that 21 percent of\nblack men who were having sex with other men were infected with HIV, the\nvirus that causes AIDS. In 2000, a new survey placed that figure at 30\npercent. In the latest update, that number has soared to 46 percent —\nalmost half.\n\n"Many people are taking from this data that gay blacks are engaging in\nriskier behavior; but that's not the case," asserts Phill Wilson, chief\nexecutive officer of something called the Black AIDS Institute. "HIV\nprevention in the black community was delayed, which is why there's\nhigher incidence."\n\nWilson blames the federal government, specifically the CDC: "The\nprevention program was designed for white gay men, and we were told to\nmake it work for gay black men. It didn't."\n\nAgain, here is a classic case of Negroes utterly refusing to take any\nresponsibility for their own actions, even when they are literally\nkilling each other — and whites — with AIDS (Anally Injected Death\nSentence). Along with black-on-black crime, low academic achievement,\npoverty, political corruption, illegitimacy, and every other Negroid\nfailing, this is a problem that the white community is loudly faulted\nfor not solving.\n\nWilson and 49 other black homos signed an angry open letter titled,\n"Nearly Half of Us May Already Be Infected. Who Gives a Damn?" In that\nmissive, they called the black HIV infection rate "genocide." They then\nprofessed to be "shocked" when no one gave a damn. There was no\nreaction, wailed Wilson, "Not from the black community, gay community,\nor straight community. This data demanded front-page coverage."\n\nAmong the demands issued by Wilson and his pals — not one of which\ninvolved action on the part of blacks — was the establishment of an\noffice within the CDC dedicated exclusively to black homosexual health\nissues. Can you say, "black separatism"? Also, Wilson said he was\nchallenging the CDC "to reduce HIV among gay blacks by 50 percent in the\nnext five years."\n\nChallenging the CDC? What about challenging the subhumans busily\nspreading their deadly disease every day and night? Only gay blacks can\nreduce HIV among gay blacks, just as Negroes are the only ones who can\nreduce crime, illiteracy, poverty, corruption, mass bastardy, and idiocy\nin their own communities, assuming those things can be reduced.\n\nBut it's so much easier to sit in front of the TV camera and whine —\nlike the woman in Louisiana ... like John Boyd ... like Phill Wilson ...\nlike Jesse Jackson — until some "nice white man" is stupid enough to\ncome along and accept responsibility for your problems.
