    There is surely no nation in the world that holds "racism" in greater horror than does the United States. Compared to other kinds of offenses, it is thought to be somehow more reprehensible. The press and public have become so used to tales of murder, rape, robbery, and arson, that any but the most spectacular crimes are shrugged off as part of the inevitable texture of American life. "Racism" is never shrugged off. For example, when a White Georgetown Law School student reported earlier this year that black students are not as qualified as White students, it set off a booming, national controversy about "racism." If the student had merely murdered someone he would have attracted far less attention and criticism.

    Racism is, indeed, the national obsession. Universities are on full alert for it, newspapers and politicians denounce it, churches preach against it, America is said to be racked with it, but just what is racism?

    Dictionaries are not much help in understanding what is meant by the word. They usually define it as the belief that one's own ethnic stock is superior to others, or as the belief that culture and behavior are rooted in race. When Americans speak of racism they mean a great deal more than this. Nevertheless, the dictionary definition of racism is a clue to understanding what Americans do mean. A peculiarly American meaning derives from the current dogma that all ethnic stocks are equal. Despite clear evidence to the contrary, all races have been declared to be equally talented and hard- working, and anyone who questions the dogma is thought to be not merely wrong but evil.

    The dogma has logical consequences that are profoundly important. If blacks, for example, are equal to Whites in every way, what accounts for their poverty, criminality, and dissipation? Since any theory of racial differences has been outlawed, the only possible explanation for black failure is White racism. And since blacks are markedly poor, crime-prone, and dissipated, America must be racked with pervasive racism. Nothing else could be keeping them in such an abject state.

    All public discourse on race today is locked into this rigid logic. Any explanation for black failure that does not depend on White wickedness threatens to veer off into the forbidden territory of racial differences. Thus, even if today's Whites can find in their hearts no desire to oppress blacks, yesterday's Whites must have oppressed them. If Whites do not consciously oppress blacks, they must oppress them Unconsciously. If no obviously racist individuals can be identified, then societal institutions must be racist. Or, since blacks are failing so terribly in America, there simply must be millions of White people we do not know about, who are working day and night to keep blacks in misery. The dogma of racial equality leaves no room for an explanation of black failure that is not, in some fashion, an indictment of White people.

    The logical consequences of this are clear. Since we are required to believe that the only explanation for non-White failure is White racism, every time a non-White is poor, commits a crime, goes on welfare, or takes drugs, White society stands accused of yet another act of racism. All failure or misbehavior by non-Whites is standing proof that White society is riddled with hatred and bigotry. For precisely so long as non-Whites fail to succeed in life at exactly the same level as Whites, Whites will be, by definition, thwarting and oppressing them. This obligatory pattern of thinking leads to strange conclusions. First of all, racism is a sin that is thought to be committed almost exclusively by White people. Indeed, a black congressman from Chicago, Gus Savage, and Coleman Young, the black mayor of Detroit, have argued that only White people can be racist. Likewise, in 1987, the affirmative action officer of the State Insurance Fund of New York issued a company pamphlet in which she explained that all Whites are racist and that only Whites can be racist. How else could the plight of blacks be explained without flirting with the possibility of racial inequality?

    Although some blacks and liberal Whites concede that non-Whites can, perhaps, be racist, they invariably add that non-Whites have been forced into it as self-defense because of centuries of White oppression. What appears to be non-White racism is so understandable and forgivable that it hardly deserves the name. Thus, whether or not an act is called racism depends on the race of the racist. What would surely be called racism when done by Whites is thought to be normal when done by anyone else. The reverse is also true.

    Examples of this sort of double standard are so common, it is almost tedious to list them: When a White man kills a black man and uses the word "******" while doing so, there is an enormous media uproar and the nation beats its collective breast; when members of the black Yahweh cult carry out ritual murders of random Whites, the media are silent (see AR of March, 1991). College campuses forbid pejorative statements about non-Whites as "racist," but ignore scurrilous attacks on Whites.

    At election time, if 60 percent of the White voters vote for a White candidate, and 95 percent of the black voters vote for the black opponent, it is Whites who are accused of racial bias. There are 107 "historically black" colleges, whose fundamental blackness must be preserved in the name of diversity, but all historically White colleges must be forcibly integrated in the name of... the same thing. To resist would be racist.

    "Black pride" is said to be a wonderful and worthy thing, but anything that could be construed as an expression of White pride is a form of hatred. It is perfectly natural for third-world immigrants to expect school instruction and driver's tests in their own languages, whereas for native Americans to ask them to learn English is racist.

    Blatant anti-White prejudice, in the form of affirmative action, is now the law of the land. Anything remotely like affirmative action, if practiced in favor of Whites, would be attacked as despicable favoritism.

    All across the country, black, Hispanic, and Asian clubs and caucuses are thought to be fine expressions of ethnic solidarity, but any club or association expressly for Whites is by definition racist. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) campaigns openly for black advantage but is a respected "civil rights" organization. The National Association for the Advancement of White People (NAAWP) campaigns merely for equal treatment of all races, but is said to be viciously racist.

    At a few college campuses, students opposed to affirmative action have set up student unions for Whites, analogous to those for blacks, Hispanics, etc, and have been roundly condemned as racists. Recently, when the White students at Lowell High School in San Francisco found themselves to be a minority, they asked for a racially exclusive club like the ones that non-Whites have. They were turned down in horror. Indeed, in America today, any club not specifically formed to be a White enclave but whose members simply happen all to be White is branded as racist.

    Today, one of the favorite slogans that define the asymmetric quality of American racism is "celebration of diversity." It has begun to dawn on a few people that "diversity" is always achieved at the expense of Whites (and sometimes men), and never the other way around. No one proposes that Howard University be made more diverse by admitting Whites, Hispanics, or Asians. No one ever suggests that National Hispanic University in San Jose (CA) would benefit from the diversity of having non-Hispanics on campus. No one suggests that the Black Congressional Caucus or the executive ranks of the NAACP or the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Educational Fund suffer from a lack of diversity. Somehow, it is perfectly legitimate for them to celebrate homogeneity. And yet any all-White group - a company, a town, a school, a club, a neighborhood - is thought to suffer from a crippling lack of diversity that must be remedied as quickly as possible. Only when Whites have been reduced to a minority has "diversity" been achieved.

    Let us put it bluntly: To "celebrate" or "embrace" diversity, as we are so often asked to do, is no different from deploring an excess of Whites. In fact, the entire nation is thought to suffer from an excess of Whites. Our current immigration policies are structured so that approximately 90 percent of our annual 800,000 legal immigrants are non-White. The several million illegal immigrants that enter the country every year are virtually all non-White. It would be racist not to be grateful for this laudable contribution to "diversity." It is, of course, only White nations that are called upon to practice this kind of "diversity." It is almost criminal to imagine a nation of any other race countenancing blatant dispossession of this kind.

    What if the United States were pouring its poorest, least educated citizens across the border into Mexico? Could anyone be fooled into thinking that Mexico was being "culturally enriched?" What if the state of Chihuahua were losing its majority population to poor Whites who demanded that schools be taught in English, who insisted on celebrating the Fourth of July, who demanded the right to vote even if they weren't citizens, who clamored for "affirmative action" in jobs and schooling?

    Would Mexico - or any other non-White nation - tolerate this kind of cultural and demographic depredation? Of course not. Yet White Americans are supposed to look upon the flood of Hispanics and Asians entering their country as a priceless cultural gift. They are supposed to "celebrate" their own loss of influence, their own dwindling numbers, their own dispossession, for to do otherwise would be hopelessly racist.

    There is another curious asymmetry about American racism. When non- Whites advance their own racial purposes, no one ever accuses them of "hating" another group. Blacks can join "civil rights" groups and Hispanics can be activists without fear of being branded as bigots and hate mongers. They can agitate openly for racial preferences that can come only at the expense of whites. They can demand preferential treatment of all kinds without anyone ever suggesting that they are "anti-white."

    Whites, on the other hand, need only express their opposition to affirmative action to be called haters. They need only subject racial policies that are clearly prejudicial to themselves to be called racists. Should they actually go so far as to say that they prefer the company of their own kind, that they wish to be left alone to enjoy the fruits of their European heritage, they are irredeemably wicked and hateful.

    Here, then is the final, baffling inconsistency about American race relations. All non-whites are allowed to prefer the company of their own kind, to think of themselves as groups with interests distinct from those of the whole, and to work openly for group advantage. None of this is thought to be racist. At the same time, whites must also champion the racial interests of non-whites. They must sacrifice their own future on the altar of "diversity" and cooperate in their own dispossession. They are to encourage, even to subsidize, the displacement of a European people and culture by alien peoples and cultures. To put it in the simplest possible terms, White people are cheerfully to slaughter their own society, to commit racial and cultural suicide. To refuse to do so would be racism.

    Of course, the entire non-white enterprise in the United States is perfectly natural and healthy. Nothing could be more natural than to love one's people and to hope that it should flourish. Filipinos and El Salvadorans are doubtless astonished to discover that simply by setting foot in the United States they are entitled to affirmative action preferences over native-born whites, but can they be blamed for accepting them? Is it surprising that they should want their languages, their cultures, their brothers and sisters to take possession and put their mark indelibly on the land? If the once-great people of a once-great nation is bent upon self-destruction and is prepared to hand over land and power to whomever shows up and asks for it, why should Mexicans and Cambodians complain?

    No, it is the White enterprise in the United States that is unnatural, unhealthy, and without historical precedent. Whites have let themselves be convinced that it is racist merely to object to dispossession, much less to work for their own interests. Never in the history of the world has a dominant people thrown open the gates to strangers, and poured out its wealth to aliens. Never before has a people been fooled into thinking that there was virtue or nobility in surrendering its heritage, and giving away to others its place in history. Of all the races in America, only whites have been tricked into thinking that a preference for one's own kind is racism. Only whites are ever told that a love for their own people is somehow "hatred" of others. All healthy people prefer the company of their own kind, and it has nothing to do with hatred. All men love their families more than their neighbors, but this does not mean that they hate their neighbors. Whites who love their racial family need bear no ill will towards non-whites. They only wish to be left alone to participate in the unfolding of their racial and cultural destinies.

    What whites in America are being asked to do is therefore utterly unnatural. They are being asked to devote themselves to the interests of other races and to ignore the interests of their own. This is like asking a man to forsake his own children and love the children of his neighbors, since to do otherwise would be "racist."

    What then, is "racism?" It is considerably more than any dictionary is likely to say. It is any opposition by whites to official policies of racial preference for non-whites. It is any preference by whites for their own people and culture. It is any resistance by whites to the idea of becoming a minority people. It is any unwillingness to be pushed aside. It is, in short, any of the normal aspirations of people-hood that have defined nations since the beginning of history - but only so long as the aspirations are those of whites.

    William, I found a link:

    http://www.crusader.net/texts/bt/bt01.html

    Clicking a link I also find this:

    I think it would be nice if there was some documentation for all these charges. Clicking through a bit, found that 'great source' 1963 Augusta, GA paper. Wow, that was impressive. :rolleyes:

    Then of course, there is some enlightenment by David Duke, connecting the evil Jews with the Civil Rights Movement:

    I've seen enough.

    Remember ajwps kathianne. How he used to make fun of christianity and say there was no such thing as race. There are jews that are afraid of a strong white christian identity in america, but think a homeland for jews is hunky dory. It's not total insanity.

    Yes it is. There is no such thing as an ethnic White American. Sure there are caucasians living in America but we all came from somewhere else. Jews are by birth originated from the area that Israel currently occupies, this is unargueable, the same cannot be said for Whites in America. I always knew you were partial to seperatists, no matter how cleverly you phrase things or dance around it, you can't hide.

    I actually think the article had a lot of truisms in it.

    As to jews only coming from Isreal, well that was true thousands of years ago. So then, if that is true, then there are ethnic whites, from europe, the northern lands.

    Further, many minorities no longer come from one distinct place. Spanish? Is that mexican or people from Spain? Often the two are intertwined. African americans? Most "african americans" relate as well to africa as I do to europe. Which is, almost nill. Iranians? Most think they are arab, but they are not, rather they think of themselves as persian/aryan. Are japenese chinese? Or are chinese japanese? B/c they both come from the same ethnic gene pool. I could go on, but you get the point.

    If whites have no ethnicity, then neither does any other ethnic group. Too bad we are all not just human.

    I can agree with some of what William posted. Especially about Mexicans coming to the US illigally. I have absolutally no problem with people coming here *legally*. I don't think they should come here and expect health care, collage loans, or jobs of any kind if they're illegal.

    OCA,

    You say they're no such thing as an ethnic white american. I disagree, there are probably millions of white americans with Indian blood, no matter if they look white and the Indian is very deluted. I would consider them (ME) and ethnic white american. You can't look at a white american and think, "they don't belong here, they're european", since they might very well have indian ancestery.

    By your standard, there is also no such thing as a pure black, a pure "Hispanic" or a pure Jew. Yet all three of these groups have both biological integrity and powerful, powerful group sense. They make racial demands and they get them. It is a fact that when whites are faced with this, they react as their own group. I personally don't have much choice. There is simply NO WAY for me to find a group as a quarter-English, quarter-Scottish, quarter-Irish and quarter-French man. Or others like me. I AM WHITE. If I'm tempted to think otherwise, I just hop the train up to Harlem and they set me straight.

    I sometimes wonder if you've seen anything at all. Saying that because David Duke said something makes it false is not going to cut it. I suppose if David Duke said that the sun rises in the east, you wouldn't believe it. You haven't addressed any of Mr. Jackson's points and why they are wrong. The "charges" he makes are pretty easily confirmable by virtue of being an America, alive, who lives in America. Read the newspaper sometime. Turn on the TV. Walk down the street.

    I think you're just afraid that he's right! But hey, I've been there. Believe me, it's STILL a weird issue around my house. All the relatives have NOT gotten used to the new "racist", but some admit they can't refute some of the points.

    William, I've 'seen' enough of this stuff. I've read quite a lot of what you have posted here, it's just that none of it jives with my experiences. You spoke of some black woman that treats you like slime. You say white women treat you great.

    I've had both blacks and whites treat me well and crappy-I do believe it's them, not me. (at least I HOPE so!) There are creeps of every color, ethnic group, and religion. Some of the nastiest folks I know are Catholics, so are some of the best. Many Protestants get on my nerves, yet my two best friends are. Probably the person I like least is Jewish, but at one point I thought I loved him well enough to marry him, so go figure on religion?

    I have several neighbors that are black, nicer neighbors I couldn't hope to meet. Probably because blacks haven't lived in the surrounding suburbs for more than 15-20 years, they are a tiny minority and I've yet to meet any that aren't nice. I'm sure as more move in, there will be the annoying ones, just like whites.

    The Hispanic kids I teach are without exception the most respectful kids as a group. Their education aspirations aren't always at the level of their abilities, but that seems a cultural trait, that hopefully will change over time. (None are illegal and all speak English.)

    As far as that site went, I have a problem with all sorts of accusations with no citations, I find it funny that as a lawyer you don't. You can accept what you want as authoratative, but I wouldn't buy David Duke anymore than I do Noam Chomsky, for the same reason, they want acceptance based on their opinions only, no matter how they say it.

    I think this ignores another very obvious possibility which is that poverty is not an easy thing to get out of. If your parents are poor and uneducated, you are less likely to value an education and even if you do, will have more difficulty in attaining an education. I'm not saying that this 3rd possibility is "the truth" because I have no stats to prove or disprove it but I think it is a very likely possibility that isn't mentioned by your article.

    I think it is when the statements go from "Whites should be proud of the things we've accomplished" to "******* are dumb, spics are criminals, and kikes are evil" that the line into racism has been crossed. No one should cheerfully slaughter their own society but come on, are you telling me that you can't be proud of your heritage without putting down others'? Racism has nothing to do with pride and everything to do with hatred. See the distinction? And yes, I (and I suspect most others) certainly believe that jews who hate arabs are racist, blacks who hate whites are racist, and mexicans who hate blacks are racist too. Simply stating What would surely be called racism when done by Whites is thought to be normal when done by anyone else does not make it true.
