Charleston Chad asks me: "what is it psychologically that makes you think it's badass to be an internet racist?" I don't know about "badass," Charleston, but it does feel pretty good to say things I can't quite say around the watercooler. I see that there are pretty obvious differences between racial and ethnic groups. I read stacks of stuff confirming that in fact, there are. And yet in "official society," in the MSM, etc., we're not supposed to acknowledge this. We're not even supposed to THINK about it. Example. Today, I'm listening to NPR report on the fact that in the District of Columbia, blacks are three times more likely to be obese than whites. Cause? According to NPR, racism. Yeah, really. Now, come on, people. Is it just possible that the cause of blacks being fat is... blacks overeating and not exercising? And that whites aren't actually at fault here? Hello? No, guess not. So, as I grip the wheel of the Civic and curse my coffee cup, I feel... disempowered, you might say. Here and elsewhere, I can right that injustice, if you will. Certainly, there have been one or two occasions when I've lost my temper or spoken out of turn. But not often. I typically make an effort to stick to facts and sound reasoning and back up what I say with information or links, etc. If what you're trying to insinuate is that I wouldn't say what I say here to the black guy at my office or my former Jewish boss, you're right. I wouldn't. I'm a polite person most of the time. But I hardly think that cuts too deeply against the truth or sincerity of what I'm saying. Actually, it kind of bolsters it. The truth is that these are serious issues, and I think our failure as a society to address them openly and honestly is really fucking things up in America. Surely you'd agree that open and honest communication is a virtue. I hope I've answered your question. And maybe you could entertain us with a brief discourse on what psychology is involved with denying racial differences.
