Are Black Problems the Product of White Conditioning?
Many white people complain that black tend to be lazy, dependent, criminal, loud, aggressive, and anti-intellectual. Black people complain that this is due to the centuries-old legacy of white slavery and discrimination that followed. They say that black people were ‘bred’ this way by white folks. So, if black students don’t take their studies as seriously as white students, it’s because white people had long tried to keep blacks illiterate and ignorant in the past. If black people tend to be dependent and lazy, it’s because they weren’t allowed to develop a work ethic.
But, are these complaint really true? Are black problems solely or mainly the product of white wrongs done to blacks? Was it because whites ‘bred’ and/or conditioned blacks in ways that proved to be destructive or dangerous? Upon close inspection, there’s a problem with what we shall the Bred Theory. "I gots no bread cuz the way I was bred."
If blacks today are the way they are because white people ‘bred’ them that way, two questions are in order. Did white people really ‘breed’ or condition blacks that way? And, if blacks act in the way they’ve been ‘bred’ by whites, why are the results so uneven and haphazard?
For instance, let us assume that blacks don’t care about studying because they weren’t allowed to read and write when as slaves and also because of inadequate educational facilities provided to them after Emancipation. Let us assume this is all true, the implication being that is it very difficult if not impossible for a people to break out of habits ‘bred’ into them. But, why are blacks so good at sports and funky music? Though blacks were made to mostly perform manual labor, they were discouraged and even forbidden from athletic endeavors. Whites felt threatened by black physicality and tried to prevent the rise of black champions in boxing, for example. White boxers went out of their way to duck a fight with Jack Johnson. When Johnson finally became champion, whites desperately looked for the Great White Hope. In baseball and football, blacks were kept out for much longer. So, if white folks had one message to blacks, it was "STAY OUT OF SPORTS, NIGGER!" Yet, even though white folks had tried to ‘breed’ blacks away from athletic professions, blacks have long been passionate about and outstanding in the field of sports.
Then consider the area of funky music. White slave masters forbade Negroes from owning or beating on drums. Negro drum music was seen as crazy and savage; worse, they could be used as means of communication by slaves readying to flee or rebel. Also, whites wanted black to be orderly and obedient, so blacks were not encouraged to be funky and wild-ass. In other words, blacks were ‘bred’ to be gentle, kind, obedient, and even noble in an innocent way–like the Negro singing "Old Man River". Even in the famous anti-slave novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin, the Negro is a suffering saint who takes his beating as a kind old soul.
IF blacks are supposed to act the way they were ‘bred’, how come they are so wildly into funky music, aggressiveness, uppityness, and etc? How is it that blacks have easily over-ridden all these conditioning
and effects of ‘breeding’ but cannot overcome the supposed aspects of conditioning that keep blacks down. Whites never ‘bred’ blacks to rape white women, but black men seem to specialize in that field. How come? White people never conditioned blacks–at least not until the late 60s–to be uppity, wild, or aggressive. Yet, a lot of blacks are uppity, wild, and aggressive. How come?
There’s a great contradiction in the black charge against white people. On the one hand, blacks claim that whites robbed them of their culture, and therefore, American blacks have forever been torn from their rich roots, and this is why they are spiritually, morally, and soulfully lost. (Funny that Africans with their roots intact are worse off, poorer, still practicing witchcraft, tribal warfare, and even cannibalism.) Yet, at the same time, blacks take pride in music such as blues, jazz, soul, and rap(and even rock) as a proud and inextinguishable continuation of their African roots and soul. Which is it? Did white people cut them off from their roots or are those roots still alive in funky music? Can blacks break out of white man’s conditioning or not? Supposedly, they can’t break out but they can break dance. Did white masters who wanted their slaves to remain docile encourage them to dance like wild crazy lunatics?
Of course, one could argue that white masters did enjoy blacks dancing and ho-de-do shuffling as a form of entertainment–and also to keep blacks childlike and innocent. But, I suspect this was tolerated because blacks naturally seemed so pent-up and restless with rhythm and oogie-boogie beat regardless of their social situation. Masters probably thought it was better to let wild black slaves release their excess jungle energy through shuffling ho-de-do dancing because it might explode in dangerous ways if completely repressed. The fact that Spanish masters in Latin America didn’t have the equivalent of oogie-boogie shuffling/dancing slaves of indigenous origin tells us that blacks were naturally than socially conditioned to be restlessly funky in one way or another–shuffling ho-do-doing docile manner or rapping fist-pumping aggressive manner. Though Mexican mestizos and Indians like to fiesta, they don’t git down and funky!!!! The natives of the Americas were originally Asiatic and tend to be inhibited and ‘lame’ than like their racial cousins across the Pacific.
Now, let’s look at how white people really ‘bred’ the blacks. It’s true that white people conditioned blacks to be ignorant and illiterate. So, let us say that is the reason why blacks are intellectually lagging in America. But, whites also conditioned blacks to be hardworking and thrifty. Surely no white slave owner in the South or a white factory owner in the North wanted a lazy black. Also, whites wanted blacks to be thrifty because a wild Negro who drank too much and got wild was no good for work on Monday morning. White people also ‘bred’ the Negro to be respectful of law and order. White folks also ‘bred’ Negro men to stay away from white women. White folks also ‘bred’ blacks to not act uppity, aggressive, hostile, or angry. Some of these conditioning could be said to be bad, some of them good. At any rate, most white people wanted blacks to emulate Booker T. Washington than Jack Johnson.
Now, if the main problem blacks face is the difficulty of breaking out of their ‘breeding’ or conditioning, why is that blacks found it SO EASY to break out of so many areas of conditioning while they seem incapable of breaking out of others? For centuries, white people didn’t ‘breed’ or condition blacks to be aggressive, criminal, loud, brash, uppity, jive-ass, howling-all-the-time, threatening, sexually promiscuous(though some black families were sadly separated by their members being sold off to other masters, most black families remained intact because white slave-owners wanted it that way. It was generally thought that a slave with a family made a happier and better worker).
On the one hand, blacks say they cannot break out of the mold that white folks put them in. On the other, blacks are always yapping, boasting, and howling about how they control their own destiny and don’t give a shit about what white folks told them for centuries. Though whites tried to rob black men of their manhood for a long time, black men today flaunt their manhood and often put white men down as ‘white boys’. Yet, these very same blacks say there’s NO WAY they can break out of the mold of the ‘dumb nigger’ that the white men put them in. Aint it strange how certain forms of conditioning are so easy to violate, break, and overturn while others are so impossible?
If blacks have used the history of white conditioning as excuse for their economic failure, Jews have done the same to explain their economic success. Jews will say they excel as lawyers, bankers, and businessmen because white folks forbade them to own land. Unable to work as ‘dumb’ farmers, Jews were forced to excel in business and finance, leading to their great success. There must be some truth to this, but why isn’t it true with gypsies who were also forbidden from owning land? And why is that so many Chinese, Japanese, and Germans, the majority of them formerly of peasant background, turned out to be fine businessmen? Both blacks and Jews are falling back on the paradigm of White Guilt, according to which blacks are not economically and intellectually successful because of white oppression while Jews are economically and intellectually successful because of white oppression. This way, if anyone complains of Jewish power, wealth, and influence, Jews can say their success is merely the product of their victimization at the hands of white gentiles!! Yes, Jews are a very clever people. No wonder they make good lawyers. Indeed, even many of the excuses used by blacks today were actually developed by Left wing Jews. (By the way, if social or historical conditioning is so absolutely crucial, how come Jews have come to excel in music and art when their religion forbade them to dabble in such fields for millennia? I do not discount the significant impact of history and social factors and indeed recognize them as important. Rather, my point is they are insufficient in answering all the questions often raised today.)
To find the truth, we need to look at biology as well as history. Blacks today are largely the way they are mainly due to biology. In the past when they were not free, they had to suppress their own biological nature–or face the wrath or hostility of whites. Today, they are free, and thus every generation of blacks has been able to express its TRUE NATURE to a greater degree–thus reverting to their ‘jungle’ origin. (If reactionaries hark back to monarchy, reversionaries hark back to savagery. How ironic that the most technologically advanced nation on Earth has as its dominant mainstream culture a form of music that is utterly reversionary.) What is black biological nature? They are stronger, more aggressive, more colorful, wilder, and etc. Those factors, rather than history, account for the way blacks are today.
Same is true of Jews. It may well be that Jews, driven to professions such as usury by Christians, did develop finer financial skills than most other people. But, the level of Jewish success and power in America cannot be explained by that alone. We must take into account Jewish genius. Of course, most Jews are not geniuses. If the average Jewish IQ is 115, it means your average Jew is only bright. It also means that there is a fair number of dumb Jews. But, the smart ones are VERY SMART, and in a free meritocratic nation like the US, the sky is the limit. These Jews make billions, create networks, and help others in the Jewish community. Trickle Down Effect tends to be ethno-centric or racial among all peoples. Rich Jews help less rich Jews out. Rich blacks help less rich blacks out. Rich Irish help less rich Irish out. Rich Poles help less rich Poles out. Of course, it is politically incorrect or ‘racist’ for rich Anglos to help less rich Anglos out. Because supersmart Jews are so smart and become superrich and super powerful, the less smart Jews are likely to benefit much more than less smart gentiles whose top members aren’t as talented. This is especially true in the black community where many of its elite achieved success through politics than through business. Black elite gained power through the art of leeching off others than through the art of creating and producing.
This is a topic that needs more consideration however.
