Part of the reason for the riots is the desire to steal stuff. Part of the reason is “I hate white people!” Part of the reason is embedded in street culture and the idea of being violent as a symbol of status. And part of the reason is in the cowardice of people who can only be brave with a crowd behind them, and do nothing but blame others for their woes. None of it is about justice. No one is fooling anyone here.
Here’s something you black parents should teach your kids. You should teach them the truth about me.
I’m a 1%‘er. I’m middle aged, white, and by your description, rich. I’ve been a hedge fund manager, an economist, and a C level executive at various points in my career. In my current position I have dozens of employees, and I have managed hundreds of millions of dollars. I am by all accounts, the very thing you despise the most and that you blame for all your problems. When you wail against this culture, it’s me and guys like me who you wail against. I am the thing you so totally despise.
But I don’t care about race – never have. Not only do I not care about race, I don’t think about it. I never consider it – not for a second. But you hate me so much that you can’t imagine I don’t hate you back. I don’t. I don’t have the time.
You think I cheated to succeed. I didn’t. I started with nothing, in an abusive household run by a violent drunk who was married to a deaf woman. What I did was work hard. What I did was learn to control myself. What I did was hop over every hurdle placed in my way, and there was little else. I never got a handout, or a hand up. The government only ever punished me for being white. So I worked. Harder than everyone. And that hard work and time, is how I succeeded.
You think people like me hate the sight of you, but we don’t. We don’t care that you’re black, we only care that you’re so stupid. We care that you act so horribly to yourselves, to us, and to each other. We care that you have no manners. We care that you don’t moderate your behavior. We think your culture ennobles idiocy, and makes heroes of the wrong kinds of people. The people who built the western world all acted like us. The people who turned Nigeria and Zimbabwe into world class shitholes all acted like you. You should learn to act more like us.
That’s the real upshot. If you want to get along in the world you should quit ‘acting black’. Clearly that’s recipe for disaster. When the cop says “put your hands up” it doesn’t take a genius to listen to the cop. They are pointing a gun at you, and though they are often white, they aren't so terribly bright themselves. when a stupid man is pointing a gun at you is not the moment to be thinking about your pride. In a circumstance like that, you should do what the white kids do. Just shut your hole and listen to the guy with the gun. Pride can come later. Don’t be stupid anymore, and you’ll live a lot longer.
I think Obama is a lousy president – arguably one of the worst three in American history. But if you acted more like him and less like useless street thugs and criminals, you’d do much better. He, for the most part, acts white. You should too. If you don’t, things will never get any better for you. And all the new immigrants will rise up in American culture just like the Irish did, and leave you behind at the bottom again.
And idiots that you are, you’ll still think it’s because your skin is brown, and not because you’re idiots.
