So in my browsing the racialist underworld, I came across an article about the obsession that sites like The Right Stuff have about black American crime rates. Oddly enough, it seemed to be written by a black American. It went something like this:
“This conversation obviously is about blacks who are the problem, not the ones who aren’t […] Even though we may not be the direct problem, we still participate the the cultural problem […] I’m black so I can’t possibly understand what whites living in fear of crime have lived through so I can’t tell them how to feel…”
Anyone else see the problem with this article?
Okay, then can anyone else also see the problem with this screed from Phil Plait?
As you’ve guessed, the above piece was fiction, but if you look at The Right Stuff’s lexicon, they do indeed list the following:
NAxALT“Not All x Are Like That!” The conditioned egalitarian response, meant to deconstruct any statement that would challenge the postmodern ideology (and there are a lot of them).
In some ways I find TRS less repellent than Plait. TRS doesn’t pretend to be something it isn’t. What is so sickening about the line advanced by Plait is the unthinking righteous arrogance in which it is cloaked.
UPDATE: Dumber and dumber – Plait’s parrotting the line that this nutbag is a PUA (pick up artist for those of you who have better things to do in your lives than look this up) despite him being a member of an anti-PUA site (you don’t think…? Nah…). Looking into this business, I notice that the PUAs are saying this wouldn’t have happened if the kid had the social skills to get laid. That may be crass, but it’s still more persuasive than the drivel put out by Plait; sexual hysteria is a powerful fuel for violence after all.
