I think it's ironic that so many liberal white people, consumed by some sort of narcissistic guilt, are openly flouting their racism by trying to show they aren't racists. Nothing illustrates this hypocrisy better than the lowering of academic standards now being openly pushed at ALL levels of education, not just college, where quotas and affirmative action have been hurting black kids for years, largely at the expense of Asian kids.

I wrote about this spread of "dumbing down" in my last article, "White Math and Black Math." (Grant County Beat, 3/27/21.) Let me repeat a sentence from a supplemental instruction course that the Oregon Department of Education recommends for Oregon's math teachers:

"White supremacy culture shows up in math classrooms when the focus is on getting the 'right' answer."

This is a "fact" that most of us, including the kids in the classroom, have been unaware of until now. What the white liberals apparently don't realize, is that by overtly deemphasizing getting the right answer, for reasons which will be very, very apparent to the kids, white supremacy is tacitly affirmed and black inferiority tacitly acknowledged.

Question: Don't they realize how humiliating this is to the minority kids, especially the black kids?

Another question: Why aren't America's blacks raising Hell about this blatant racism?

I guess I'm just too damned old to "get" it. I graduated from high school way back in 1957, in a class of 155 that included 10 black kids. Some of those black kids went on to forge distinguished careers, and all of those black kids would have been deeply offended at the assumption they were dumber than their white classmates. A couple of them would have kicked your lily-white racist ass for implying that.

In fact, the black kids were NOT dumber and a few were conspicuously more intelligent than most, if not all, of the white kids, me included. Of course, this was 1957, when the majority of black kids came from two-parent families, where at least one of the parents held a fulltime job, and if there was any black family dependent on welfare, I didn't know about it. It certainly wasn't a common condition.

How times have changed. Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK in 1963, and then LBJ introduced the Great Society/War-on-Poverty programs, which effectively bought the black vote for his party. As LBJ infamously said, "I'll have them niggers voting Democratic for 200 years."

Well, it's been almost 60 years, and, so far, the old SOB has been right. The typical black voter today has bought into the white supremacy, intrinsic racism, victimhood BS, and simply can't see how blacks are being used and denigrated. Too busy picking cotton on Massa LBJ's Plantation, I guess, or maybe that should be "Uncle Sam's Plantation," the title of Star Parker's book. (You can find it on Amazon: $10.99 paperback, 2010 revised edition; 4.7 out of 5 stars, 285 reviews.)

The tide may be turning, although very slowly. The above-mentioned Star Parker, a classy black lady who ran for Congress in 2010 against a black Democrat incumbent, received only 21% of the vote. Kimberly Klacik, another classy black lady who ran for Congress in 2020 against a black incumbent, won 25% of the vote.

Based on that objective data, my subjective opinion is that 75% of today's black voters aren't worth a damn, down from 79% in 2010. Add to that, 63% of the Asian voters aren't worth a damn either (they voted for Biden), nor are about 85% of the Jewish voters (ditto). They join 50% of the white voters who also aren't worth a damn, and you can see that I am more than just a racist anti-Semite: I'm a deplorable.

It may be too late to save America. The Democrats have ridden their coalition of racial minorities, imaginary "victims," social justice warriors and well-meaning whites to one-party rule. They are now busy consolidating their power with voting law changes and a massive raid on the treasury to reward their constituents. This will be followed by huge tax increases, wealth confiscation, and various attacks on the Bill of Rights, such as hate-speech codes, gun seizures, etc.

There is a slim chance that the Democrat's coalition will break apart in time to prevent all that. Quite a few Jews and Asians are realizing that they're second-class Democrats in a party that is essentially ruled by radicals, especially black radicals. Plus, there is a small but growing cadre of black voters who are fed-up with the Democrat Party, and there will certainly be some voters who are no longer lobotomized by Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Unfortunately, the Republican Party is not an attractive alternative for many of these voters, and I'll explore why in my next article.
