Radical Anti-Racism

Perhaps you haven't heard, but slavery is wrong. So too is racism. But why they wrong? By virtue of what principle(s)?

I know why they're wrong: ultimately because all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with... you know, the thing.

So what. The founders believed the same nonsense but some of them owned slaves.

Yes, but that was wrong, and they knew it was wrong. Democrats didn't invent the positive good defense of slavery until a generation or two after the founding.

The positive good defense is rooted in very different principles from the founding, and these principles have guided the Democrat party ever since, from Jim Crow to racial quotas to the war on cops.

The latter, for example, insists that different standards should be applied to policing blacks just because blacks commit a vastly disproportionate amount of crime. This is analogous to applying different college entry standards to Asian Americans just because they commit a vastly disproportionate amount of scholarship. Which Democrats also do: different races, different standards.

Blacks lives matter. No doubt, but why? By virtue of what principle?

I know -- because ALL lives matter!

Wrong. That makes you a racist.

Hmm. I don't have a second guess. I give up. What's the right answer?

No, I really do give up. What is the Politically Correct answer? Be right back. I'm gonna go to the source.

Perfect: What We Believe. The mission: "to build local power and to intervene when violence [is] inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes." Vigilantes? I have good news for BLM: 86% of unorganized, non-state interracial violence is committed by Blacks, despite Blacks comprising only 13% of the population.

And the state? The top 20 urban areas that feature the most Black-on-Black violence are all run by Democrats, often for decades (or maybe it's 19 out of 20).

I'll cut to the chase: I don't see any principles here. There is (in their words) rage, commitment, desire, fighting, catalyzing, healing, struggling. There's a lot of talk about "Black people," but no attention to actual persons.

There'a a lot of sub-literate nonsense such as

We intentionally build and nurture a beloved community that is bonded together through a beautiful struggle that is restorative, not depleting.

Does that make any sense to you?

We are unapologetically Black in our positioning.

That's neither here nor there. I am unapologetically white. I'm also unapologetically male, Homo sapiens, mortal, married, a father, a baseball fan, a beer lover, a record collector... I'm not proud of any of these, just not apologetic. Why would I be? It won't help. I do, however, apologize for being a psychologist. That was never my intention. It just turned out that way.

We see ourselves as part of the global Black family, and we are aware of the different ways we are impacted or privileged as Black people who exist in different parts of the world.

Ah ha. I think I've identified the essential flaw in their anthropological reasoning, and which makes for a smooth segue into our next subject, which is very nature of the human subject, AKA The Selfhood of the Human Person.

Our approach will demonstrate not only why Black lives matter, but why they are of literally infinite value. Note that this statement cannot be true if the belief animating BLM is true, that "to love and desire freedom and justice for ourselves is a prerequisite for wanting the same for others."

This has it precisely backward and upside down. For in reality, human rights are prior to their instantiation in a racial (or any) group.

In short, these rights inhere in individuals, never in groups, races, tribes, classes, genders, political parties, etc. You possess them because you are a person, never because you are a black or white person. To believe otherwise is a truly grotesque and dangerous regression to an earlier understanding of personhood (because it is, as we shall see, a denial and defacement of personhood).

Let's begin with a question. Let's say you know nothing about me except I am Black. Knowing I am Black, do you know anything of substance about me?

That is correct: you know nothing (except that I am a person, with all this entails, which is a great deal). If you believe otherwise, there's a name for that: racist. Even if one believes different racial groups may on average do better or worse in this or that endeavor, this tells you nothing about the individual.

Perhaps you assume that because I'm, say, Asian American, I must excel at math. Maybe, but you won't know until you actually meet and get to know me. Or, maybe you think someone is "privileged" because he's white. If so, you're just another racist.

This is all so elementary, it's distressing it even has to be said. But this is the progressive Age of Stupidity we've been born into. As a psychologist, I deal with every race under the sun, but I never make any assumptions -- good or bad -- going into an interview. Why would I? I'm not evaluating a group but a person.

But what is a person? And what makes them so special? I learned in biology that human beings are just randomly evolved animals, no better than any other. I learned in ecology that humans are like any other animal only worse, and I learned in neurology that there's not even any such thing as a human self, just neural activity.

Back to our question: what is a person, anyway?

Almost every answer to this question begins in a certain independence in being and acting.... a person is never a mere part in any whole but a whole of its own... (Crosby).

Since a person is never a mere part in a whole, a person can never be reduced to his race. Indeed, no person is even a "member" of a race, certainly not in any meaningful sense, since it again tells us nothing about the actual person.

Does this mean community is of no importance? No, of course not. But it does mean a community must be of and for persons, not reduce person to group or engulf the individual in the collective:

personal selfhood provides the only possible basis for all deeper forms of community.... the defenders of community and the common good should beware of certain proposals of restoration, such as those that reject the idea of the person as subject of rights. There is a core of personalist truth in the individualism of rights, and this has to be preserved in all attempts at renewing the bonds of social solidarity (ibid.).

Any person matters because all persons matter, period. But today, radical anti-racism such as that discussed here is considered a form of racism by the racists of the left, the great majority of whom are, as usual, white Democrats, not black.

Or, maybe you think someone is "privileged" because he's white. If so, you're just another racist.

I know a young woman. Lovely girl, training to be a nurse, works in a children's cancer ward. Not your standard thot, but of course she has a very big heart and is easily led to believe that, for instance, she has benefitted from white privilege. Even though she lost out on a good scholarship opportunity to a less-qualified person of color; even though she grew up in a home every bit as dysfunctional as any I know of; even though she, too, didn't have her own father in the home, and as far as I know is pretty much on her own for financial support. Of course, she doesn't look at her life that way, and so she feels guilty simply because she's a person of pallor, and of course all the people closest to her tend to agree that she should. They feel guilty, too.

Anonymous said...

Julie, I'm with you: persons of pallor need not feel guilty.

Now, white ancestors f*cked over black ancestors. Badly. Really. Awkward....

Nobody knows how to handle this historical pile of mierde. Feel guilty if yer white? Feel ashamed if yer black? Who knows how to feel?

This is what our ancestors left for us. Whites stole trillions in unpaid labor. Blacks got massa in the pussy down in the chicken shack, or his whip on their backs.

Now, who's going to pay for that sh*t? Someone's got to pay. Right? Trillions stolen. Let's not pretend someone doesn't have to pay for that.

Right? Or is the ledger wiped clean, because it wasn't today's whites who cracked the whip, and it wasn't today's blacks that picked the cotton?

Is the slate clean. That's the question. Or is there a festering resentment for an unpaid debt.

We aks, "Can't we all just get along?" Sure we can. As soon as them books is balanced. Right now there is a ghost in the room, the spirit of money owed. Everyone is uneasy.

Most people learn that life is a competitive game by the end of the first grade.

What many do not know, is that it's not like playing The Game of Life, or Monopoly, or any other game of skill. It's more like Poker, except where knowing the dealer, or keeping extra cards in ones back pocket, or cheating in any way possible without getting caught, or even regardless of getting caught, is how one wins the game.

Most angry people, left, right, or center, just want more structure to the game, and less sociopathy.

Does anybody know personally, black people who've been given special advantage over whites?

I don't know any personally, but I've known a few who've told me that if they get harrassed by
white management that they'll use the tool of 'anti-racism' to defend themselves. And a few of those people have been self-delusional about their actual worth to that company.

But I know far more whites, usually of the conservative flavor, who've accused me of "white mans guilt" after I told them I voted for Obama in '07 and came to regret it. Even after I explained to them that I'd bought into the "Hope and Change" theme, foolishly assuming that he'd revise the corrupt K-Street corporate socialism system as well as the outsourcing of jobs and technology and border defense. All they saw was a black man and a white voter.

So who was the racist?

Anonymous said...

Great post as usual GDB.

As you suggest, all lives matter; but they do not all matter the same amount.

The management around here uses a 29 point assessment tool to calculate the worth of each life on a scale of 1.0-2.0 (lowest to highest value).

Now we don't stand in judgment. It is what it is. The numbers don't lie.

So when we decide on where to put a new highway, for instance, we would route that through a borough inhabited by persons of lower worth.

In criminal cases, if a high worth person was to be charged with a crime, typically we would dismiss the charges; where on the other hand we would charge and convict a low value person and apply a lengthy sentence, usually all in one day.

That's just how things work. Nothing personal.

One thing that galls me about the American people is how ungrateful they are.

People complain about the government, while at the same time sucking in huge lung-fuls of air and blowing them out without a care in the world.

Why?

Because our Government gives unlimited air to everyone free of charge. This is not just oxygen, mind you. There are generous rations of nitrogen, helium, and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere as well. Not to mention trace amounts of noble gases such as argon and neon.

All of it government property. But, out of an abundance of generosity we just allow everyone to consume as much free air as they want.

So when citizens turn around and complain about every little thing, it exposes them for the ingrates they are.

I have suggested to my bosses that the Government start charging for air, and I think the time is coming when the free ride will be over.

And don't even get me started on sunlight. All of these BTU's, untaxed. It bothers me, it does.

Anon @6/27/2020 04:22:00 PM,

My mother, uncle and grandmother came to America with nothing but the clothes on their backs. They'd lost everything in the war, after their ancestors had built up some wealth and status over many generations. In America they became a preachers wife, a civil engineer, and an impoverished elderly on welfare (after having been a high school principal who lost her husband).

I also know many Vietnamese, Iranians, of course many Mexicans, Ukranians... and even a guy who'd escaped the killing fields with his brother to never see his family again. All of them came to eventually enjoy the fruits of American education and labor without complaint.

An aside, but I learned a real lesson in humility when the killing fields survivor yelled at me once. He'd been our best techie, smart and conscientious, and one day suddenly gave his notice that he was quitting. I went to him to ask why. He looked at me like I was nuts and shouted out: "THERE'S NO FUTURE HERE!", his voice echoing off the back wall in that large office bay resulting in people looking. I was humbled. That's when you know your job sucks, when a survivor from the killing fields tells you're company isn't a very good one.

Sorry about all the long-windedness. My point is what about the blacks? Why do so many of them seem stuck in such bad ruts of drugs, ghettos, and gangster rap?

I already spoke of the poison of surrounding oneself with dysfunction in some ghetto. In the Gaza it seems the Palestinians make one mess after another. Yet Palestinians living in other places, like Jordan, America, even Israel itself, are doing far better in seemingly every way. Environment seems very important. This would discredit the emotional need to balance the historic books.

1. In all of human history, urban areas have always had crime and human dysfunction and all manner of sinful nastiness concentrating in far more abundance than in rural areas. It’s just how humans roll.

2. All environments full of dysfunctional human sinful nastiness are still going to contain a few decent souls who’ve tried everything and are desperate for whatever help they can get. Or, they do just move away but this only increases the concentration of dysfunction.

3. If one party, say the Republicans, tells the remaining decent voters in #2 that they’re all just gonna have to suck it up and go to church and be personally responsible and just behave themselves and pull themselves up by their bootstraps and that their party will be reducing taxes and services, then they will not get the votes. Not for a people desperate for immediate solutions needed right now. This means that the only other remaining viable party, the Democrats, such as they are, whatever they happen to be at that time good, bad or ugly, will then get whatever votes there are to be had, in desperation.

4. This creates the illusion that Republican solutions are always going to be the superior solutions in all urban areas, just because of the spurious lower concentrations of sinning inherent in rural areas. (The child pregnancies or meth and opiate crisis or vacant main streets or poverty related crimes which the media may not always report is a subject for another time.)

4. The only prevailing Republican solution which has proven successful in the immediate, has been to target the drug addicted, well known to cause the most petty neighborhood crime, to incarcerate them, with the hopes that their removal from society will help improve the neighborhood enough so that it can get back on its functional feet. If successful, then gentrification can happen.

5. But this has become past history. Today, most elites in either party gives a damn about improving any neighborhood unless there’s some donor money in it. This cannot be more clearly proven by the lack of discipline the police forces demonstrate in regards to competent policing. Cops who clearly and obviously intentionally murder are getting lumped in with cops who make mistakes. So the people inevitably riot, as desperate people usually do, blaming whatever it is that their tribal sources of information tells them to blame.

So stereotypes are racist? Or are they only wrong when they are applied along the axis of race? I think there's a major excluded middle here. Everyone uses stereotypes, including those concerning the race of the person they are observing. Being unable to process a person beyond stereotypes IS sort of dumb... perhaps merely another case of stupidity.

People are for equality in theory, until they need to get something done. Then everyone is a 'racist'. C'est la vie.

Do you think Aristotle was wrong when he talked about 'natural slaves'? Or was this distinct from the concept of 'chattel' slavery? What are we to make of the notion that it's an honor for Christians to regard themselves as 'slaves of God'? (This is sometimes translated 'bondservant' because English-speakers can't handle 'doulos' [slave].)

It's hard for me to believe that anyone's race or indeed how their genetic heritage shapes their personhood somehow effaces their person. In the end, everything ends up being racist. Anyone can do it! But what does it MEAN?

In practice it just means you lose your job.

That cognitive bias may be a strategy for conserving cognitive resources, combined with a need to defend ones own tribe, may explain the human drive to oversimplify 'differentness'.

It may be some of the fuel, but I don't think it fully explains the spark which causes the fires of racism to burn.

Andrew Carnegie's partner, Henry Frick, can be said to have used that spark to help him replace the companies higher paid German Bessemer experts with lower paid imported Slavs, after that process had become part of their house knowledge. He was basically pitting one tribe against another to deflect attentions away from his own greed. Or business moxie, depending on how one views it.

When Mexicans replaced journeymen butchers in the meatpacking industry, same thing. Then if you dared say anything about all the illegal Mexicans yearning to breathe free and just do a job, you were a racist. More subtle than saying that niggers were only good for banging drums and picking cotton, but pretty much the same thing, using 'racism' for economic gain.

Frick got shot anyways, before being dumped by Carnegie for being too violent, the job some say the diminutive Carnegie had hired the bully sized Frick for initially. Many see Carnegie as a nice guy, that philanthropic scottish library builder and all, but I think he had to a helluva lotta rationalizing to do business the way he often did.

In the great spin of history, everybody was at some point a slaver or was enslaved. You pick anybody, anywhere, trace their ancestral tree, and you’re going to find some grand atrocity their kin committed. Collective guilt is a steaming cow pie.

In days of yore, before the correctives of Western Civ, slavery actually made sense. After warfare, the victor took slaves as a means of grinding defeat and domination into the souls of the enemy. It made a larger economic sense, too. If a people had a resource, but didn’t have the manpower to benefit from it, they took slaves - this is what the South did, as had many peoples before. If you had a slave surplus, you sold them. This was simply the way of the world, and in fact still is in certain areas.

The USA doesn’t owe anybody anything except, per the Constitution, an equal opportunity. Those so eager to tear Western Civ down seem to have no clue that it was Western Civ and Western Civ only that brought an end to slavery.

The left can occasionally boil their argument down to one or two words. For instance, I accidentally caught a snippet of the news today, where it was intoned that among pregnant women, African and Latin American women (shockingly, no mention of trans) are most likely to suffer sickness from Covid. The reason for this, given without any evidence or room for questioning, is institutional racism.

We are to believe that all the nurses and doctors treating these patients - most of whom in SoCal are probably minorities themselves - are actively giving substandard care to non-whites, and there couldn't possibly be any other factors that might make these particular groups of people more susceptible to this particular illness. It's just racism.

Julie, DeBlasio made sure to publicize his criticism of the Jewish community in nyc for breach of lockdown rules, but less so of the busts of lockdown breach in the black and Hispanic communities. There was a lot of breach in all cases. And now I’d bet the police don’t even bother with enforcing in the black and Hispanic areas.

In a way, more minority COVID positive cases IS systematic racism, but it’s racism on the part of DeBlasio and the Dems.

julie said...

Will, it's like that county in Oregon where the mask order is only for whites, not "people of color," because somehow masks make them more susceptible to racism or something. In reality, this means one of two things: either COVID is way overblown, the risks are minimal, and this is a tacit acknowledgement of that fact such that nobody really needs to wear a mask, but they still want white people to cover up and fell guilty; or, they really think brown people are too stupid to wear a mask properly, and they really don't care if brown people are getting sick more easily (or maybe they even hope for that result).

Either way, there is some serious, genuine racism going on, but it's precisely the opposite of what they want people to think.

@julie

you've got it all wrong. Racism is always a word of power, so it means whatever they want it to mean. So long as conservatives play the game of 'racism is bad' (or even, racism exists) they will always win.

It's easy to figure out if you work out the logic, right?

Hating a person for their skin color is racism, but if you hate all humans for being crap and that happens to fall upon a person of color, you're racist. Noticing differences in people based on skin color is racism, but simply noticing differences in people that happen to fall upon persons of color is also racism. Noticing race can be racism, but ignoring race, also racism. It's racist to love someone for their skin color too, but if you happen to love people and it happens to fall not often enough on persons of color, you're racist. In effect the only way to not be racist is to do exactly what your progressive thought leaders say and accept that it will still be racist.

It's not a game anyone here should play. Genuine racism doesn't exist and never did. An intelligent person can describe any crime committed that is regarded as a 'hate crime' as a crime without things like racism, and almost everything considered a crime or sin only because of racism, isn't.

This is the hard cold truth.

As for the 'poc don't have to wear masks' it's just consistent with the fact that public health is just another arm of politics, and because viruses don't pose any real political benefits for the party of government, they will be ignored when convenient, including when many people are dying. Far from being 'facism' or 'authoritarianism' what we have is a lack of real government. The reason why you feel like you can't trust your government is because you can't; not because human government or coercion is somehow inherently suspect (you're not old-line evangelicals after all) but because our government is, in fact, shit.

I believe citing racism on their part is just trying to avoid this obvious fact, our government is perhaps one of the worst in the world right now-- and that says a lot.

Sadly Dupree, increasing numbers of our youth are expecting churches to be something in that range from a networking club to a nihilistic death cult. They're not replacing the departed like we once did.

But will the Latinos save them? My in-law's childhood parish is up to half latinos now, with their own services. I hear that a thousand miles away, The former Chrystal Cathedral of Hour of Power fame, same thing (but I can't confirm that). Maybe somebody else could confirm if their parking lot becomes full with bumpin beat low riders.

I think the solution is to become big tent, once again, leaving politics at the door. Quit bestowing sainthood to players like Trump, McConnell and Biden, just because they know who to pander to for votes. Not as much fun, but far more productive.
