Critical Race Theory (CRT
) is what we’ll refute here today. One can’t really disprove a religion, such as it is and be that as it may, we will try to get it “into the dustbin of history!” This is an epitaph quoted from the mass-murdering Bolshevik Leon Trotsky. He said it at the time, referring to the Mensheviks with whom he had once conspired. Never trust the Left
. Indeed don’t confuse his metaphor with the actual fact that the Mensheviks were literally eliminated into the “dustbin” with a 24/7
crematorium within the bowels of the Red Square. Never-mind the Gulag
; many got it with a shot
to the back of the head on the way to the basement where their bodies were disposed of by fire
As regards CRT, most theorists do not believe in reason
as I define it in many of my articles. One of the splendid insights of modern reason
is that politics offers only very limited answers to humankind's many obstinate problems, and especially on the subject of "the equity of final results". For more CRT scholars than I mention in this article see, Payne Hirakldo, Randall Robinson, Jean Stefancic, Patricia J Williams, Richard Delgado, Kimberlé Crenshaw and Angela P Harris; as far as I can tell they are all extraterrestrials with no stake in Enlightenment
, and only see their alienness (their racial and sexual identities) and no other aspect of what might be called our global humanity.
Let us say you are at university, and you are taught or come across Intersectionality
and you are a Jewish handicapped transgender woman of color, at the top of the new caste system of American identity politics, and some old white guy is rude to you during an everyday transaction between the two of you. You have so many choices here. Was he rude because of your race, religion, gender-transition, sex or handicap? Who wants to live this way unless you are burnt by wicked revolutionary spirits and are naively impressed by this neo-Marxist
Reports of incidents of assaults
against Asian-Americans is the very definition of racism and quite common, especially since Covid and the whole lab-leak theory
, one group resentful
of another who is achieving better scores; what else would you call that? Asians are taking the best jobs, or spots in the finest schools, or highest paid positions in corporations. These are what the detractors accuse—and indeed, some of it might be true. Leftist only understand the world as a zero-sum game whether it’s economics (wealth-creation), education (learning) or life in general (applying one’s self to achieve excellence
and a happy life
). Their kind of rhetoric defines this envy of others towards Middlemen Minority traders
which has led to so much violence and genocide the world over in our recent history.
When my family moved into an Asian community in Toronto, my new neighbours said about my son going to the neighbourhood high school, “It’s swarming with Asian kids.” I asked myself, “Have we just won the lottery?” And my hopes for my son held true, his marks started to rise over the years and in his last year he became an honour student. Was this co-relational or causal, we’ll never know, but peer-to-peer socialization
is the greatest non-genetic effect on children?
If the overachieving minority is of Asian descent, progressives and Black American-born intellectuals call this an unfair advantage even if the Asians have just arrived in America and are dirt poor. If they are Asians and fill up 70 percent of the excellence schools with a racially-blind Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT) as the Jews did in the 70s, this as well is described as privilege and somehow white advantage. Why do Asian Americans succeed?
They often do more than four hours of homework every day for instance. Privileged whites and ‘oppressed’ American-born Blacks are the only colors the Woke scholars sees (and sometimes Hispanics, if you are the right shade of brown for their tastes) (not for instance overachieving Indian and Pakistani immigrants
Meritocracy in America is now under severe strain by Woke intelligentsia. If Black Haitian immigrants (or Barbadian, Jamaican or other Black minority immigrants from around the globe), produce Jewish standards of excellence in American high schools where they are co-educated with American-born Blacks, we witness a curious occurrence. Sometimes when they outperform American-born Blacks, they are bullied with slurs, name calling and accused of having white attitude and society is allowing (and the Left
) even encouraging this disgusting bigotry.
Why judge an individual by character when race will do for the political class? Why understand the heritage or culture of minorities when you get to say their background doesn’t matter more than this one solitary obsession: capital R race? Wasn’t that Hitler’s
claim, that race was the only deciding factor between Jew and German and nothing else really mattered? The thing is, you almost never find American-born Blacks and American-born whites, privileged or otherwise, doing that much homework every day unless they are immigrants
The antiracists (CRTs) call overachieving Asians, approximate-white and overarching brown Hispanics like Cuban Americans border-pale. They even intimate that over-reaching Black immigrants are white-washed; you can’t win if you perform excellently with merit alone. Your culture, let’s say for example the American Jewish one in New York City in the previous decades, which achieved an astounding social position in the city since they arrived after WWII, encourages hard work, education and merit, and they’re at the top of the competition despite all the American-homemade anti-Semitism society could throw at them in the sixties and seventies, then that is achievement despite the obstacles, just like the Black immigrant Haitians, Barbadians, Jamaicans or other Caribbean minorities are doing right at this very second somewhere in America, and despite Black on Black discouragement.
If you are of colour (non-white) and you can compete with everyone on merit alone, then there is something immensely flawed about CRT. If you cannot feel your whiteness, blackness, browness or yellowness but instead look at people as individuals and not as groups, does that really disqualify you as a good, empathetic human being, descended as we are from this fragile African primate? Cannot Western Culture be treated as open, inclusive and welcoming instead of closed, imperialistic and exploitive? The argument straight-off seems to be that a poor showing in the game of modern life has one singular cause: racism. However, millions of Blacks with "white-adjacency" who have moved into the middleclass (as well as into middleclass neighbourhoods), have succeeded just as well as immigrant groups like Asian Americans. Many American-born Blacks are not down-trodden by CRT scrutiny; they love American liberty, law and order, the market-place and personal freedom. Despite the constant antiracist anti-market propaganda they and their children have lived with their entire lives, they, unlike many in the Woke minority, have not fallen into victimhood—good for them
—some are even libertarians. Of course, there aren’t even any real races
, (it's an illusion
), but every human-primate
has a right to be stupid at some point in their lives if they live in one of the democracies of the West
: (You know the places where people from all around the world risk everything to migrate). If these Cancel Culture radicals were in an autocracy, theocracy or tyranny in another closed society, I would be writing letters for them on behalf of Amnesty International, because they would be in jail if they were still alive. No other social order except the West would put up with their utter nonsense.
Normally an easily refutable evil like Marxism should be just ignored; however, they like the Christians and Muslims used force to promote their imperialist fairytale religion. In the 1960s the Marxist took root in much of the social sciences in Western academia and had to be fought intellectually. It was a bitter brawl to defeat these evil fundamentalists. Now it is happening again, this time with Woke Activists, many who are indeed neo-Marxists. It is exceedingly difficult work continually refuting these strange irrationalisms. Their proponents care nothing for reason, science, skepticism, facts on the ground and are completely blinded by faith in their ideology.
Even if you are American-born Black, you must conform as victim or be cast out as acting white, an admirer of the white supremacy conspiracy (“They’re everywhere, they’re everywhere!”) or be an outright Uncle Tom
(even if you really don’t realize you are one or even if you don’t understand what the Black Leftist antiracists
, are talking about). Those are the choices of immigrant Black Africans, Japanese, Vietnamese, Chinese, Koreans, Cubans, Philippines, Black Barbadians and Black South Americans who outperform American-born Blacks
on every performance metric by which you can judge.
Here’s one of their spokespeople, a handsome soft-spoken professor who got his degree from Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who surveys the dreary landscape of Black America and serves them up 100 percent righteous victimhood like a leftist intellectual who blames the tragedy of Venezuela on free-market Libertarians like myself, or like Sayyid Qutb
who came to America for higher education, and like Marx
, hated what he saw in an open society
; then the young Muslim wrote Milestones
(just as Marx wrote Das Kapital
) and helped bring about modern Islamic extremism (just as Marx helped bring about totalitarianism
This from How to be an Antiracist
: “Racial equity is when two or more racial groups are standing on relatively equal footing.” No, this kind of equity
has never been achieved anywhere in the world or at any time in history: racial equality, especially before the law, and not equal outcomes, is the ideal; so you can see how opposed to reality this is? “The only remedy to racist discrimination is antiracist discrimination. The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination. The only remedy to present discrimination is future discrimination.” How utterly disgusting a statement is that? What righteous antiracist racist hypocrisy; indeed, hypocrisy squared to the nth factor: a laughable absurdity.
Kendi says things like if you are walking down the street and you as a white dude, see a lone Black youth and cross to the other side of the street, you’re a racist. That’s hilarious; and it’s not racism, it is Bayesian reasoning at work. You should cross the street even if the lone man was a white stranger. Indeed, statistically-speaking (in regards to violent crime) if he was a Japanese man and you could tell that, then maybe you could safely pass him on the same sidewalk without any fear whatsoever of youthful male on male assault, otherwise you are taking your chances; so let’s say if you were young white man and came across a group of five young Black men on the streets of Washington who you didn’t know walking toward you and didn’t cross the street, well then, you’re an idiot. But let’s say that group of young Black men came from a charity event
and literally had the moral compass
of five Harriet Tubman’s
, and you met them the next day (and you had indeed crossed the street); you might feel bad and even apologize for it, but if they didn’t accept your apology (I’m pretty sure Kendi wouldn’t), then maybe they are ignorant of the actual young Black male crime figures in American cities, and especially in Detroit, Chicago, Washington, Cleveland, Little Rock, Memphis and so forth. This generates the question, ‘should you be injured or die so that no one can call you a racist?’ Is that a reasonable request from a Black intellectual who lives in an ivory tower, was raised by middleclass parents (who immigrated from . . . wait for it . . . Jamaica) and would himself cross the street because as you know no one could call him a racist? Blacks can’t be racists; it is a physical spiritual social impossibility.
I am a Canadian and I can’t speak for the absolute broken down relationship between Blacks and cops in America but I’ll say two things in commonsense: shouldn’t there be way more Blacks on the police forces in big cities in America, especially for the Black neighbourhoods? And secondly, shouldn’t the phony counter-productive laws against drug enforcement be straight away terminated (and all non-violent past offenders be granted amnesty immediately—their records expunged)? The War on Drugs
is one of the most tragic failures in modern law enforcement (and there’s a lot to choose from here
), right up there with the constitutional Prohibition on Alcohol
(which was pretty good business for Canada, thank you at least for that America).
Data shows that white and Asian students with greater actual merit measured in blind entry tests are being denied
admissions to schools, colleges and universities which go to students with lower marks based entirely on their race, i.e., called “Diversity” by the Woke elders; however, isn’t this the very definition of racism? But note, this doesn’t apply to the emigrant children like Kendi who fill up the ‘Diversity’ spots afforded American-born Blacks who perform so poorly that even with a generous handicap they are squeezed out by immigrant Blacks. Do you get the joke? Again how funny is it? Irony is perhaps a better word. Christopher Hitchens loved
that word and I am positive
he would regard the bully Woke as dumbbells.
The Ivy League Universities (BTW, all creatures in a number of ways of the state), are some of the worst racist institutions in America today; and especially Harvard University. By merit alone Asian Americans should be over 45 percent of their student body but in fact are well under 20 percent of enrolment. How does Harvard keep the best and brightest students out of its “touted” hallways? They do so by racial quotas and anti-Asian preferences in behest of Hispanics and Blacks in their stead. (Asian Americans are six percent of the American population and Blacks are 12.5). Asians outperform whites as well as Blacks, so this form of racial preference serves squeaky white Harvard just fine.
This reverse racism makes Harvard’s piece of paper worthless except for privileged government employment (filling quota), and the politically-connected firms attached to Wall Street, the Fed and the regulatory institutions. They are the elitists who run Washington and are celebrating the death of the rule of law while giving lip service to it, i.e., the ones who promoted the catastrophic war in Iraq
with lies, caused the 2008
Financial Crisis with more lies and defended the lawless spying
on any and all citizens of America and her allies, again, with more lies. They are completely corrupt. It is one of the most fraudulent educational systems in the world and has produced these horrible elitist liars. Their policies of ‘Diversity’ are dividing America (and the West
) into races (oppressor and oppressed) and destructive identity politics. It doesn’t produce the best and brightest, it serves the racists' elite establishment and doesn’t translate into honest government it creates a two-tiered or binary country with 2.2 million
prison inmates (by a landslide the highest per-capita ratio in the world) of its citizens and not a single one of them the corrupt bastards who have done the lying, cheating, using state retroactive-immunity and political-pardons to keep all the Ivy League larcenists like Newt Gingrich
out of prison where they actually belong. Never trust the Right
. In fact, their justice system houses a disproportionate amount poor Blacks, numbers so alarming that I think it is safe to point out that, it in itself, is a racist institute (i.e., the whole justice system of America).
Another of the American Woke proponents is Michael Eric Dyson, a street-wise radio personality, scholar and Christian minister who exaggerates like this, “Racism remains the central problem in our culture” and where in his reader
you come across references to Marx over 25 times and not a single reference to who may be the smartest man alive on earth today, Thomas Sowell
, and who has spent his long academic career on these very topics of culture
. (And as for “How to be an Antiracist” it has seven references to Marx and one to Sowell). Indeed I’ll go so far as to guess Dyson has actually never read Sowell
and suffers as serious a confirmation bias
as much as Woke academia seems to have. Maybe he thinks Sowell is a white supremacist? Thomas Sowell
is an oreo and Amy Chua
is a banana; black and yellow
on the outside and white on the inside. It is absolutely brilliant to be able to call your entire intellectual opposition, white, racist or privileged, just like the Marxists
called (and the ones left still do) all their intellectual enemies, bourgeois, middleclass and fascists.
“What, no Black neurosurgeons on your hospital staff? Your organization is racist! Well let’s fix that by replacing the Jewish, white and Asian doctors—i.e., lowering our standards for entry into neurosurgery and get a few Blacks on your staff to do that job. What, not enough American-born Blacks will do the seven to nine years of difficult learning to fill the openings for neurosurgeons? No problem, a Black immigrant will do it then.”
That’s how damn stupid all of this is. If you had a brain tumour, who would you want to operate, the most qualified or the one who most deserved it because their great grandparents were enslaved? If everyone went back far enough into their ancestry they will eventually find that they had been enslaved as well.
Slaves Are Us
Humans have been practicing slavery long before Homo-sapiens even became self-aware and it didn’t stop in any meaningful way until a few hundred years ago
. Many a time peoples were enslaved with the ideology that it was morally acceptable because they were labelled subhuman, savage or barbarians. In the American constitution, the clause: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” caused the ideological response from Southern
slave-owners as a justification to deny Blacks their humanity. Then these evil dumbbells set about trying to prove it, especially from 1500 to 1800 AD.
Thus was born a viral racism as the world has ever seen with the possible exception of global anti-Semitism in the 19th and 20th centuries. Nonetheless, after every victory against the Southern Racist Ideology (SRI); emancipation, forced integration and the Civil Rights Movement itself, SRI survived and gave birth in frustration eventually to CRT—the ideology I am refuting here—how did antiracists’ good-intentions turn into something so insidious and just plain damn stupid? Well, it’s not like intellectuals
haven’t done that before. German intellectuals (Right and Left
) used to curse the Weimar Republic grumbling, “It can’t get worse than this.” Yes, indeed it got a lot worse than that; not that they could learn from their mistakes. For the most part, they all perished in the inferno.
I can’t speak for Americans, but if you had a racial crisis in your country, would you call up light-weight intellectuals such as Kendi or Dyson or the real myth-buster PhD
-himself from University of Chicago which has 30 Nobel laureate economists affiliated with its brand and who is lauded as a true honest-to-goodness global genius, i.e., Thomas Sowell
Moreover, Ayaan Hirsi Ali
, one of the smartest
women in the world, could also help refute this convoluted mistaken racism
. Liberal and centrist parties in the West would be wise to reject and rid themselves of these counter-enlightenment forces. Leave them to the socialist parties or we will have a whole smattering globally of Trump-like nationalist and racist rulers. Now, I don’t want to call all Woke, outright racists; (they are evil dumbbells though), they won’t be wearing white burqas anytime soon and lynching overachieving Asians, of that I am sure; so, let us just say these so-called scholars are CRT fundamentalists; we’ll call them, Woke Jihadists
