Some of the goals of the black power movement are those of the black con: to achieve neurotic freedom, neurotic equality, justice, and peace. Because of the success of the black power movement and the partial success in meeting these neurotic goals, the same goals have been adopted by other con political strategies in the U.S., including: the immigrant con, the Hispanic con, the Islam con, the feminist con, and even the white con.
Below is a description of the demands for neurotic equality, justice, and peace. (“Neurotic” is defined here to mean having a slight break with reality. “Psychotic” would be a total break with reality.)
These neurotic demands will be discussed in the context of the black con, but these demands are similar to the demands of other cons. The demands of the other groups are equally unrealistic and impossible to implement. And even when they are implemented, they have dysfunctional effects. They don’t work because they are out of touch with political and economic reality. Reality, in the long run, always wins.
African Americans want to establish a society where blacks have as much political and economic power as whites, even though they comprise only 14% of the population. They want to have the same financial equality of whites, even though they don’t work as hard and don’t do the other behaviors that are necessary to financial success. Here are some of those behaviors:
Get married and stay married (be responsible for your children).
Invest 10% of your income (especially in your education).
Understand compound interest.
Protestors complain that there is 50% unemployment among black youth. But the white victim (because he pays over 90% of the taxes) looks around and sees almost 0% unemployment among young Hispanic immigrants. The white taxpayer sees these (often illegal) immigrants working hard, contributing to society, and earning enough money to support themselves and their families, as well as sending money home.
The white conservative also sees Asian youth with nearly 0% unemployment. Many of these Asian families have experienced much more oppression in their home countries than blacks have had in this country.
With his demand for financial equality between all racial groups, the black con is committed to taking as much money from the white victim as he can get, until there is this racial financial equality. To accomplish this goal he applies constant political pressure to pass laws for more income distribution and diversity. If that doesn’t work, there’s always theft, drug dealing, assault, and threats of riots. Any resistance to the goal of racial financial equality by the white victim is considered racism and oppression.
Black activists are also demanding neurotic justice. They want an equal percentage of all races arrested and imprisoned, regardless of the different behaviors of the different races. Thus since blacks are only 14% of the U.S. population there should be only 14% black prisoners, as opposed the current number of around 50%. Having this high prison population is considered by the black con as the reinstitution of slavery and jails are seen as plantations.
The protestors want to be able to resist arrest, assault cops, refuse to obey reasonable orders from cops, and threaten cops with death, all with no consequences.
The protestors want African Americans to be treated equally by cops, as equal as everyone else, even though African American males commit four times the rate of crimes as the average American. And this includes four times the rate in the murdering of cops. Cops arresting more blacks than other racial groups is considered racial profiling.
The protestors want neurotic peace. They arrogate the right to destroy property and assault innocent people in riots until all of their demands are met. Once their demands are met, they neurotically claim, then there will be peace and happiness for all. No justice no peace.
Many of the protestors also want neurotic freedom for African Americans. Their definition of “freedom” is to have right to do anything they want with no negative consequences. They want to be free from the U.S. (racist) laws, especially they want the freedom to steal, assault, kill, and sell drugs, with no legal consequences. Any practical political strategy to combat this neurotic freedom is seen as oppressive and racist.
It seems as though whites must accept these periodic riots, regardless of what is done. The riots will continue for indefinite future, for the neurotic demands for neurotic freedom, justice, equality, and peace can never be met.
African Americans will never have equal outcomes as the average American until they behave in the same way as those Americans behave who have what the black con wants. Here are some of those behaviors:
Reduce the 70% illegitimacy rate to the average American rate, around 20%. (If African Americans want to achieve what Asian Americans achieve, they can reduce the rate to their level, around 5%.)
African American men contribute to the raising of their children as much as men in other racial groups.
Obey laws to the same extent as every other racial group in America. Raise their children to obey the laws passed by the democratic process (as imperfect as it may be).
Have the same respect for these laws and the same cooperation with police.
Earn the same grades in school.
Earn the same levels of education.
Work as hard.
Contribute as much. Contribute to the same extent as others to the society and to one’s workplace.
Invest their personal income as much.
Have the same level consideration and respect for other persons as people in other racial groups have.
Have an equal level of etiquette.
Accept the reality that African Americans have the same moral and legal duties as every other person in the world. They are equal.
Black con racial beliefs
One of the core beliefs of the black con is that – because of slavery and racial discrimination of the past – they are unable to choose to have these equal behaviors. However, few immigrants buy this rationalization; only the white victim buys it because of the black guilt trip that has so successfully been placed in his mind.
The immigrants know that their personal histories in their home countries have been much more difficult and much more oppressive than African American’s history. But yet they succeed in the U.S. often even higher than the average American. For instance Caribbean blacks have a higher income than the average white American after only one generation. And the Chinese immigrants – who had draconian oppression under communism and had over 50 million killed in recent history – do better than the average American in almost every field. And Jewish people have been oppressed and discriminated against for 2,000 years.
Even though African Americans, as a group, have historically suffered more than European Americans, as a group, many black individuals have suffered much less than many white individuals.
For example, consider President Obama. Even though he may have suffered some racial discrimination in his personal life, for example, in his youth having white sales people keeping an eye on him in stores, he was still raised in Hawaii, lived in Indonesia, had devoted grandparents, had a devoted mother, went to Columbia University, and graduated from Harvard Law School. Consider his “suffering” with an average white kid’s suffering who was raised in the suburbs or an average white kid who was raised in Appalachia.
Dysfunctional beliefs and dysfunctional political policies can never work in the long run. The reason for this is that the very nature of dysfunction beliefs and behaviors is that they are not congruent with political, economic and psychological reality. In the long run, reality always wins. Truth always wins.
In the meantime, we will probably see these riots and protests go on for a long, long time. If it isn’t “the killing of unarmed black men by police” setting off a riot, it will be another imperfection in the society. After all, these riots and protests have been going on for over 50 years now, with little improvement race relations, even though hundreds of billions of dollars have been transferred from white to black.
