Identity persists

Regardless of who is in charge, as the mixed-race population of South Africa have discovered.

“It is all about the blacks. The ‘Rainbow Nation’ is a big lie!” complained Dalene Raiters, a South African mother from the “Coloured” community.

“We are not black enough,” added her sister who has also been unemployed for years. “We are not part of this country. We were marginalised during the apartheid and even now,” lamented Dalene, getting into her stride about the discrimination of which she insists she is a victim.

“Our people live like mushrooms. Four generations under the same roof,” said Elizabeth Raiters, seated in the living room of the family home in the majority “Coloured” township of Eldorado Park, an outlying suburb of Johannesburg.

In total, nine people — soon to be 10 with a baby due — live in the property, which has a small bedroom and a hut in the yard.

Elizabeth applied for social housing to ease the squeeze — but that was 17 years ago, and failed. She is convinced it is because of the colour of her skin.

Apartheid legally divided South Africans into groups of whites, blacks, Indians and “Coloured,” a term meaning people deemed to be of mixed race.

The remnants of system were swept away a quarter-century ago, and today the notion of race remains as discredited as is segregation. Yet the term “Coloured” is still widely used today — and complaints of exclusion are common.

This description of the fate of mixed-race people in post-apartheid South Africa should be informative for all the “what about meeeeee” readers who want to know how things are likely to go for their various mixed-race friends and family members in a post-USA scenario.

When identity and law conflict, identity reliably wins in the end.


Always get it in writing

Babydoc observes that the diversity dumbing-down rot is now infecting medicine:

I was just informed today that it didn’t matter that my medical decision on a particular issue was correct, because “the reality is the perception of the nursing staff” who were upset because I made them feel stupid by showing them the correct answer.

Babydoc should be sure to ask for instructions for how to behave in the event of similar future conflicts in writing. A medical institution that is literally on the record stating that the feelings of the nursing staff are to be prioritized over the medical treatment of the patient is a massive malpractice suit in the making.

And if you’re not terrified by these developments, you should be. Iatrogenic deaths are going to absolutely skyrocket now that diversity has invaded the medical sector.


Doomed to mediocrity

The USA increasingly embraces the idea that group identity is more important than merit:

Millennials and Generation Z believe representation of all races and religions in the workplace is more important than hiring based on merit, according to a new survey.

Roughly half (51 percent) of Millennials (age 22-39) and Generation Z (age 18-21) said that ‘fair representation of race, ethnicity and religion is paramount to creating the ideal workplace,’ according to the poll of 2,002 Americans conducted by John Zogby Strategies.

By comparison, 48 percent of Generation X (age 40-54) and 42 percent of Baby Boomers (age 55-74) agreed with that statement. Just 15 percent of Generation Z and 32 percent of Millennials agreed with the statement that ‘merit and competition supersede all, even if that results in a workplace that creates minimal diversity.’

Meanwhile, 37 percent of Generation X and 45 percent of Baby Boomers said that merit is more important than diversity.

‘There are really two opposing schools, I guess you could say that there’s one that’s on the side of progressive ideology, whereas the other one is more in line with the way business was always run,’ Jeremy Zogby, a partner in Zogby Strategies, told DailyMail.com. ‘There is definitely a progressive slant in Millennials and Gen Z.’

Among all Americans, 47 percent prioritized diversity in workplace hiring, while 37 percent said merit should matter most.

Just as identity politics trump ideology politics, mediocrity trumps merit in a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic society. Welcome to life as the Third World has always known it.

This, however, is a trend that you need not accept. Pursue excellence even as you embrace your identity.

The virtues of vibrancy

Given the increasing number of attacks like this, it won’t be long before the vast majority of Americans conclude that the Civil Rights Movement was the most evil and deleterious attack on the nation since the 1965 Naturalization Act.

A Twin Cities man accused of throwing a child over a third-floor railing at the Mall of America has a history of mental health problems and had twice been ordered to stay away from the mall, court records show.

In a previous criminal case, Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda told police that “he has some anger issues” after being arrested for smashing computers at a Minneapolis public library.

Aranda, 24, is being held by Bloomington police on suspicion of attempted homicide after he threw or pushed a 5-year-old boy from a third-floor balcony at the mall Friday morning, police said.

Aranda was arrested in the mall transit station after fleeing the scene.

And yes, this is yet another example of an unprovoked black-on-white attempted murder. The charges have been upgraded. It doesn’t matter if “you don’t see color,” not that anyone takes your sanctimonious pretense seriously. The point is, those who hate you do.

There isn’t much of a mystery surrounding the death of the shopping mall. Who wants to go shopping in public when it means putting your small children at the risk of murderous vibrants.

UPDATE: Twitter jumped the gun. The boy is hanging in there.

The boy, whose first name is Landen, “is still very much with us and fighting,” he said in a Facebook message.


Fake crime no time

I don’t know why anyone is leaping to the conclusion that the Chicago justice system is corrupt. Surely the decision not to charge Jussie Smollett for committing a hoax crime was nothing but the result of a thorough police investigation leading the state prosecutor to conclude he was innocent of the charges!

Jussie Smollett will not be prosecuted for allegedly faking a racial attack, because all charges have been dropped!!!

Jussie and his lawyers ran to court Tuesday morning in Chicago, where he was facing 16 felony counts of lying to police in the alleged racial and homophobic attack.

Jussie will surrender his $10,000 bond. But, that’s it. The case is over.

We’re told the State’s Attorney, Kim Foxx, told Chicago police she was dropping the case because Jussie would have only gotten community service if convicted and she said he has already performed community service so there is no point in prosecuting him. We could not find any record of Smollett doing community service.

We’re told Chicago police are “furious” and feel something untoward is going on with Kim Foxx. 

Jussie’s lawyers say, “Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him. Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29th. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public, causing an inappropriate rush to judgment.”

Doesn’t everyone know that it’s racist to hold not-white people accountable to white people standards? I’m only surprised that the police who arrested Smollett aren’t being charged with racism in the first degree.


Amazon bans black history books

At least Amazon waited until Black History Month was over before banning four books by black authors about black history:

The banning of four Nation of Islam Black history books by Amazon, the largest bookseller in the world, provides a perfect opportunity to examine the wickedly racist ways Jewish power is wielded in America. Amazon provided no warning, no reason, no hearing, and no opportunity to respond—it was a blatant mockery of Amazon founder Jeffrey Bezos’s own creed, “Democracy Dies in Darkness.” It is, however, perfect proof of what The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad said: the mental resurrection of Black people will anger our oppressors and cause them to react punitively and viciously.

This is just another exhibit in the growing divide between the Democratic establishment and the grass roots of the party. This is why some Republicans are foolishly calling for what they describe as a Jexodus, which is insanely stupid if one considers what happened when the neocons were welcomed into the conservative movement.


16 felonies

It should be interesting to see the inevitable outrage from the Hollywood crowd:

A Cook County grand jury has returned a 16-count indictment against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, according to court records. The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office confirmed the indictment, which they said was returned by a grand jury on Thursday. 

It doesn’t look like this one is being swept under the rug.


I, too, am concerned

Blacks just noticed that CNN is insufficiently vibrant.

The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) called out CNN and its president, Jeff Zucker, in a press release, blasting the company for what it says is a lack of diversity in its top leadership. NABJ also said that it was placing the company on a special media monitoring list so the matter could be studied further.

“The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) is concerned about the lack of black representation within the ranks of CNN’s executive news managers and direct reports to CNN President Jeff Zucker,” the organization said in a press release on Tuesday. “This concern, coupled with Zucker’s refusal to meet with a four-person NABJ delegation, has prompted NABJ to place CNN on a special media monitoring list.”

“CNN President Jeff Zucker has no black direct reports. There are no black Executive Producers at CNN. There are no black Vice Presidents on the news side at CNN. There are no black Senior Vice Presidents on the news side at CNN,” the release continued.  “NABJ is also calling for a civil rights audit that examines the company’s hiring, promotion and compensation practices involving black employees.”

Apply the disparate impact test. If it’s good enough for firefighters, it’s good enough for the media. Then require every media company to employ the same percentage of blacks who appear in their advertisements.


South Africa in Atlanta

To be honest, I don’t feel the least bit of sympathy for the upscale white citizens of Buckhead, Georgia. Outside of Silicon Valley, it would be hard to find a more self-satisfied group of anti-racist virtue signalers anywhere in the United States:

Black crime in Atlanta is protected by the black-run government of Atlanta, who allow black criminals to prey upon the upscale white citizens of Buckhead.

Law and order is dead in America, and in Buckhead, black criminals are allowed to engage in criminality against white citizens because the Atlanta Police Department no longer prioritizes keeping their commercial or private property safe.

A glimpse of the future for all of white Americans once they capitulate power to black elected officials.

I don’t see what they’re complaining about. The most important thing is that no one can call them racists, and what is the cost of a little theft, burglary, and armed robbery in comparison with such an undeniably unmitigated benefit? After all, crime in the historically low-crime district is now only 31.6 percent higher than in downtown Atlanta.

The future for the United States of Diversity is looking more vibrant than ever!
