Fred Reed – Missouri: Taking the National Temperature

a katz /

To solve America’s racial problem, Fred Reed recommends de facto, mutally accepted segregation.

But the antics at Missouri are only one instance of a far larger disease. Daily the country ties itself in knots to keep blacks happy, which is impossible—to placate them, to soothe their disturbances, give them everything they want but can’t or won’t earn. Nothing satisfies them. They shut down political meetings, loot shoe stores, burn cities. We back away. Always we back away.

We give and give and give—Head Start, Section Eight housing, AFDC, Obamaphones, medical care, free rides at university. If they can’t pass a test, we abolish the test and apologize, apologize, apologize. Do they want to burn Baltimore? We back away, give them space, for they are troubled youth. And we apologize. It never stops.

Nobody ever, ever, tells them “No.” Might this be called Black Privilege?

As I read on Drudge, the national thermometer, the unending daily demands by blacks for this, for that, for the other thing, I would say, if I were rude–I emphatically am not rude–“Try contributing instead of demanding. I mean, beyond blues, basketball, and arson. Remember, we the white privileged invented both cities and matches. And virtually everything else that allows you to complain in comfort.”

One day—one day, maybe—we will have to admit that the racial thing isn’t working, and that it isn’t going to work. Hostility worsens. It will continue to worsen. As the white middle class loses economic ground and standards of living fall, anger will grow among the newly impoverished. The constant racial attacks on whites will continue. Why would they stop? As automation advances, jobs will become scarcer than they are now, which is too scarce, and for every job a black might do there will be better qualified whites and, increasingly, Latinos. And—this is the killer—blacks are not improving academically, because, as has become obvious, they cannot. If they can, why don’t they?
