Why Do Certain Ethno-Cultural Groups Have Bad Political Instincts?

As regular readers know, in the past I have written more than a few posts about certain odd and self-damaging patterns of behavior exhibited by blacks in USA. To be very clear, these patterns are very different from those conjured up by racist white losers of all ideological persuasions. For example, it is my opinion that excessive religiosity among black community and a strong desire to attain respectability and “acceptance” from whites has greatly hurt their ability to attain real legal equality. Then there is the issue of the black leadership class who still enjoy considerable support among black people even though they haven’t done shit all to improve the lives of their most enthusiastic supporters. We also cannot forget that most black people (especially from the older generation) are indifferent to the murders of black men by police.

The question, then, is as follows: why have all of the post-WW2 civil rights movements achieved so little? Now, I am sure that some of you might counter that by pointing out that mob lynching has ceased to exist since the 1950s or that Barack Obama was elected president, twice. While I certainly don’t deny that there have been some improvements in the area of racial equality since the 1950s, most of them occurred in the 1960s and early 1970s. In other words, systemic racism in USA has not diminished much beyond 1974. Don’t believe me? Look at the massive increase in mass incarceration (predominantly of black men) since the early 1980s, but especially during the 1990s and 2000s. What about the continued and abject neglect of black-majority areas within large cities, often run by democrats.. many of whom are also black.

Policies such as ‘stop and frisk’ in NYC have always targeted black men, despite that city being a democratic party stronghold. Similar policies and much worse was implemented in LA during the 1980s and 1990s, which ultimately led to LA riots and the OJ Simpson verdict. Are you starting to see what I am getting at.. the democratic party has not delivered to the one group of voters who are its strongest supporters. To be clear, I am not suggesting a Blexit or some bullshit spouted by black CONservative puppets. To make matters worse, the democratic party and its leaders have done more than just ignoring the demands of their black supporters. As some might remember, most of the laws which caused the massive spike in mass incarceration during the 1990s were passed by a democratic president and co-written by democrats such as Joe Biden.

And things didn’t get much better after Obama was elected in late-2008. For starters, he was the literal embodiment of neoliberal black respectability politics. His administration went out its way to preferentially screw over black homeowners who were underwater on their mortgages. Though he lived in Chicago for many years prior to becoming president, Obama did not even bother to address issues such as police brutality towards black men until cheap smartphones and social media made it to impossible to ignore. He belittled concerns of predominantly black cities such as Flint, Michigan, but always had tons of time for carefully scripted photo-ops with rich black celebrities and a few token blacks. And even after leaving office, he can’t seem to stop being the political version of Bill Cosby. And yet, he allegedly still has extremely high approval ratings among blacks, especially the older ones. So, what is going on?

Why does a black president who did as much for blacks as Reagan did for gays dying of AIDS manage to still enjoy this degree of popularity among blacks? Do you think a closeted president who ignored gays in the 1980s like Reagan did, be similarly forgiven let alone be celebrated by the gay community? Even though the Indian community in USA is not known for high levels of self-respect, the names of people such as Nikki Haley and Booby Jindal are usually uttered with contempt, nor praise or forgiveness. Have you seen Arab Muslims celebrate co-ethnics who turn traitors against their community? And yet, Obama enjoys record high approval among the black community- especially those born before 1970. How exactly does a guy who did less than nothing for the community which he pretends to represent still be celebrated by that community.

His ex-VP, Joe Biden is the lead choice for black voters in the ongoing democratic primary in spite of being the driving force behind legislation such as the 1994 crime bill, 1996 welfare reform bill, 2005 bankruptcy bill and many others which have destroyed the lives of millions of black people. Do you think holocaust survivors would vote for a concentration camp commandant? Seriously.. what the fuck is going on? Do older black people have such low standards for their leaders that they would gladly vote for somebody promises to kick them less often than the other one? This attitude is even more remarkable once you realize that democratic party is incapable of winning a national election without their vote. What is stopping black people in USA from demanding their rightful share in the aftermath of an electoral victory by the democratic party?

    Can you elaborate more on muslim-Arabs. Also speculate on what sets them apart. You have often mentioned them in quite positive light

    The Black community is a matriarchy. Women run it so nothing ever really advances. Culture is driven by outside forces which shapes women’s behavior. The only reason the civil rights era worked is because black men and the US federal government pushed for it. After the the destruction of the black family things went right back to the status quo. Black women have been running the community since slavery and that is why the results have been dogshit.

    #ADOS, that’s what’s going on. American Descendants of Slavery. The new term for African-Americans. Maybe you’ve seen the hashtag on twitter. If you’re on Twitter. And there’s ados101.com if you want to know more.The term was made up by Attorney Antonio Moore (who lives in California) and Yvette Carnell (lives in Georgia), who used to be a congressional staffer. They are both getting ADOS to develop better political instincts. Both of them discuss issues important to Black people on their youtube channels like the racial wealth gap, reparations, the impact of Black Boomers proritizing their economic interests over the Black community’s, why certain prominent Blacks don’t deserve their visibility, why the term “people of color” is useless to ADOS & other topics.)

    Black people who call themselves ADOS have decided that they’re not going to go along to get along with the Democrats; they won’t just accept any Black candidate the Democrats promote. ADOS want the racial wealth gap between them and white people closed. ADOS are demanding candidates put forth an agenda that will help bring ADOS out of poverty, that will help ADOS accumulate wealth, get adequate housing and education. ADOS are demanding reparations for slavery, Jim Crow, convict leasing, and other oppressive mechanisms used to deny Black people the chance for stable, healthy lives.

    The Dems don’t want to talk about reparations. They want to talk about means tested programs or universally applied poverty alleviation schemes that still won’t help ADOS very much. I think the Dems are ignoring ADOS at their peril, but we will see.

      Sounds like a program to lose and keep losing … no minority will ever succeed in such ventures.

    What is stopping them? The same thing that is stopping them from literally paying millions of their hard earned or welfare acquired cash to asstards who premeditatedly exploit their “constituents” like Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, Sheila Jackson Lee….. and thousands of others permeating all political arenas and communities. What is stopping them? The same thing that enabled Anglo Saxons to purchase black slaves from Africa for several decades. Who the fuck do you think the slave traders were purchasing black Africans from? Who was capturing and selling black people to the Anglo Saxon slave traders? Were the Anglo Saxon slave traders purchasing blacks from other Anglo Saxons in Europe? We’re they purchasing them from the Chinese?

    Obama was the president of all of the United States, not just the black parts of the country. He wanted to show that a black man could lead the country considering the interests of all Americans, not just those of his own racial background.

    There is no question that after 2008 the government bailed out Wall Street but failed to bail out Main Street. Large numbers of Americans of all races were hurt by that decision. The bail out of Wall Street largely happened in the closing days of the Bush administration. Obama and the Democrats did pass a trillion dollar stimulus package, but it was too small in part because economic data significantly underestimated the depth of the recession in the early days of the Obama administration. They also passed programs to help homeowners refinance there homes at more affordable rates. Those programs were not as effective as they should have been because banks refused to implement them.

    The big reason not enough was done to bail out Main Street was Congress simply would not appropriate more money for bail outs in 2009 and 2010. Republicans were screaming constantly about the debt and repeating over and over the stimulus program was not working (a lie) and just a waste of money. The stimulus program did work, it just was not big enough for the scope of the problem.

    What America needs is vigorous enforcement of anti-discrimination laws, voting right laws and politicians that actually will try to help ordinary Americans rather than the wealthy and corporations.

    This post is just Russian propaganda trying to discourage blacks from voting for Democrats so that the Orange Buffoon can win a 2nd term and continue to screw poor people of all races, but especially people of color.

        Read this blog post and watch the video of the Brezhnev 1979 Speech:

        https://dissention.wordpress.com/2018/10/06/kavanaugh-confirmation-is-american-version-of-brezhnev-1979-speech/

        The author of this blog claims to be an Indian working in the bio-medical field in either the US or Canada. It is clear the true author of this blog post must be a fluent Russian language speaker. You cannot draw the conclusions the author does from the English subtitles in the video.

        lol.. I know people who are fluent Russian speakers and who grew up during the 1970s.

        Then consider this post:

        https://dissention.wordpress.com/2018/07/11/on-the-jingoistic-delusions-of-arstechnica-fanboys-about-spacex-1/

        Apparently ArsTechnica published some articles critical of the Russian space program and praising SpaceX. The Indian bio-medical researcher author of this blog had to leap to the defence of the Russian space program, explaining why certain launchers had been developed and used even though they were less reliable than Western launch vehicles.


        Because, I have been interested in that sort of stuff since a kid. FYI, the aeronautics bug runs deep in my family. One of my uncles is an aeronautical engineer and another was into flying.

        If you have been reading this blog for some time and have any critical thinking ability it should be obvious to you who is really writing this blog.

    I don’t think blacks are so positive about Obama’s policies, they are just proud to have one of their own in office, the same as people from Smithsville all celebrate the QB who made it to the NFL or the humble student who eventually made it to congress, regardless of political stripe. I don’t see any real harm in a little civic pride and identification.
    The Democrats only care about power and have been bought and sold by the powers that be … they don’t care about anything. All issues are simply about manipulating the voting audience.
    Blacks shouldn’t be focused on their leaders or any supposed saviors, but on concrete policies that affect them most, such as shutting down the drug war that affects them disproportionately, and judicial reform that would make a dent in the extremist incarceration state, and a lot more. And they should stop thinking the Dems are their party.

    A couple observations in regards to the black american community:

    1) There are only a few cities in the United States where you see educated black professional men milling about the business districts. Nobody talks about this. I see black women all the time.
    2) 75-80%+ black illegitimacy rate and in-tact black families being scarce (Mother & Father)
    3) Massive # of African Americans that cannot get ahead due to a previous conviction/jail sentence.
    4) Many black professional men that seem to want nothing to do with all of the dysfunctions within the black community. Statistically not finding a suitable educated black women and thus not raising proper black families themselves.

    Throw in:
    1) The majority of black leaders are parasitic and are not held accountable.
    2) All the dysfunction that results from not having in-tact families (e.g. teen pregnancies)
    3) A culture of not talking to the police resulting in many unsafe neighborhoods
    4) Terrible education facilities where most AAs live (balitmore, detroit, deep south).
    5) Only being a generation or two away from integration, desegregation, and jim crow laws.

    All this results in AAs getting hit even harder by American corruption, collusion, and I-got-mine mentality.

    I meant to have commented on this earlier, but I was away on yet another vacay…

    Truth is, black people have ALWAYS had faith and a regurgitation of such bad ideas, whether it’s bogus CONServative mantras, chanting shitty religious (Christian and Islamic) hymns, stupid Bill Cosby “Cliff Huxtable” routines and believing in either of BOTH parties, whom are against the people. Like you’ve said in a topic you’ve made about why you don’t understand why Indians or anyone else believe in “cultural pride”, we vote for two parties, but BOTH of them work for the same elites at the top of America’s pyramid that are against the people. This is why Colin Kaepernick said he wasn’t voting for either presidential candidate back in 2016 and I didn’t blame him (of course, “respectable” negros like Stephen A. Smith ran his mouth about it).

    The problem is, it isn’t just older blacks who regurgitate that poison to the younger generation (whom in today’s grand scheme of things are walking away from worthless traditions), whom have to stand up to or compete with other ethnic groups of men who are smart enough to not live by that bullshit. Truth is, women and middle class suburbanite blacks are ALSO regurgitate that poison. – And whomever said there’s no such thing as a black middle class obviously doesn’t know shit. They look down on other blacks for their poverty or for acting on their most natural impulses, when, as Thugtician once said, they are only seeing themselves and eachother on a very bad day (or, once again, in their most natural or genetic sense).

    It´s incredible that one can be so blind being so smart. Blacks in the US have become a permanent underclass due to their OWN ACTIONS, no one else’s. And before you regurgitate the usual boilerplate excuses (racism, blacks that want to be white, “excess religiosity” etc.), NO ONE is forcing their women to become thots and conceive as many fatherless children as they want. NO ONE is forcing their youth to reject education and learning en masse to become thugs, whores etc., things one wouldn’t from an “excessively religious” people (whatever that means). NO ONE is forcing them to give preeminence to their daughters, spoiling them and ruining their boys so they can act surprise years later when those boys are terrorizing their neighbourhoods..

    Obama is beloved among his community due to their TRIBALISM, the same tribalism that has blinded them to their situation. BO is beloved because he is black (or half black shoud I say) not because he has done anything or left anything worth calling legacy; the same reason why overly psycopathic and incompetent cannibal dictators are prefered just because they are local in Africa. Only when blacks follow the Japanese route (pre-WWII) and assimilate the good things of the west, only then, they will pull out of their misery. Until then, they will be vassals at best, of far more disciplined peoples.

    Most blacks are EDE’s – Evolutionary Dead Ends. With the exception of those that can function, most of them need to be deported back to Africa. Too bad Lincoln was not around to get that job done. And yes, White European Christian civilization has done the most for humanity despite its imperfections.
