Except, y’know, when it ain’t.
While most of the kerfuffle over Scott Adams focuses on his response, too little is made of the poll he is reacting to. When half of blacks polled either aren’t sure or openly respond in the negative to the very idea of it being OK to be White, it exposes the virulent hatred and resentment that most blacks have toward Whites. This is not as simple as preferring to be around their own race or mild dislike of Whites because of quirks and peccadillos, it is outright hatred. Also understand that a black neighbor or co-worker that is polite to you doesn’t at all mean they don’t resent and hate you behind their plastic smile.
Their hatred is not because of residual trauma over slavery nor is it anything to do with discrimination and oppression, as contemporary blacks haven’t faced any real oppression in 50 years. No, their hatred toward Whites has been carefully cultivated.
It isn’t like blacks need a ton of encouragement to misbehave. Any time there is opportunity, many will choose to revert to their baser impulses. We see this on display when there is a natural disaster or a “mostly peaceful protest”. While the cops are distracted the looting begins. But their hatred toward Whites runs deeper and is the product of decades of conditioning. When blacks consume media, what do they hear and see? They hear rap lyrics claiming that The Man, iow White people, are out to get them and keeping them down. In TV shows and movies it is always the same refrain, White people out to get them, reminders of slavery and the “Civil Rights” movement. Movies about contemporary Whites doing them wrong, just looking for an opportunity to lynch the fellas and rape dey women, despite the statistically verifiable fact that White on black rape happens so rarely as to essentially be non-existent.
For younger blacks especially, like those under 45, their entire life has been decades of being marinated in a toxic stew of White hatred and resentment. From the earliest age they have been taught to believe nothing is their fault and every problem they have can and indeed must be laid at the feet of Wypeepo. It has gotten worse as endless “entertainment” has become so ubiquitous via streaming media and social media more broadly. Spend a few minutes on “black twitter” or “we wuz kangz” Facebook and you will be treated to wild conspiracy theories, accusations without a shred of evidence and assertions that don’t stand up to the mildest examination. Young blacks who all seem to have the latest smartphones (and what passes for fashion) despite their supposed oppression are inundated with anti-White messaging from the time they wake until they fall back asleep.
Gee, must not’ve heard about (((DEM JOOOOOZ!!!))) yet, I guess. Everybody on Our Side knows that’s really who’s to blame for absolutely everything.
Update! What can one say but: Heh.
Norman Greenbaum broke up the Beatles, not Yoko Ono.
I’m surprised that hasn’t become some sort of meme.
Oh wait, it must have been Brian Epstein.
Except Epstein kept them focused all those years and he and George Martin had a massive influence on how they became great. But John had to sing about Baby You’re a Rich Man and sing in the background “Baby You’re a Rich Fag Jew”
All The Beatles mistakes came after he committed suicide.
