recall how liberal whites go on and on about the population bomb exploding all over the brown and black Global South. They worry that the planet may not be able to sustain so many humans, and strongly advocate UN and US aid for birth control and family planning programs to curb the crisis. But this neo-Malthusian position completely avoids the deeper and truer problem. Carbon liberated by, say, a baby in Africa is nowhere near that liberated by a baby in the US or Europe. Black people fucking like rabbits in the tropics is the least of our problems

Charles, you have some work to do. You must explain why this viral image should be regarded as sinister to begin with.
You must explain why you, Charles Mudede, want everyone else to first and foremost look for something evil when viewing a picture of a black child and a police officer getting along well with each other.
These two women moved those kids away from any oversight. They had no social service oversight, they had no teacher oversight, and it sounds like there was real trouble in that house. I'm afraid I look at people who adopt kids and make them do stuff like these kids were made to do (I'm sorry but what kind of performance art was that in Portland?) and worry. A lot. And yet black kids are removed from their own mothers for trivial reasons every day, a phenomenon known as "Jane Crow."
Mr. Mudede, you're as bad as any white nationalist. That your racism is directed toward white 'others' rather than black (or Asian or whatever) doesn't make it less vile.
You're also, to put it kindly, creative with your narrative. You know only one of any four things you write. The rest you infer with no more reason than your own prejudice. I can't imagine how dark a place your mind must be to see a child hugging a cop and go down the mental path you did. Hopefully you have no children you're teaching your own hate filled worldview.
For fuck sake Charles this is only true if you want brown and black people to remain impoverished for ever. If you want them to increase their standard of living you are by god damned default asking them to increase consumption. this increasing impact on the planet. Thus increasing competition for resources. Thus increasing wars. Thus increasing suffering.
Shit. I'd love it if the wealthy west cut consumption on a massive scale by some socialist magic wand. But without population controls even with the most ideal Socialist fantasy consumption curbs in the west the best your going to get is the same rate of consumption that's killing the planet now.
Jesus Christ, man. If the population of the planet was back to 2 billion the subequatorial brown and black peoples could consume as much as they wanted AND human labor would be worth something again.
With respect, I made no comment on the abuse allegations. This woman drove her family off a cliff to their deaths, possibly in cooperation with her partner. Clearly things weren't roses and sunshine.
It's the inferences Mr. Mudede then makes about how race played or plays into things that are pure speculation. It is possible to be unbalanced without race playing a role, as it turns out.
The bizarre non sequitors about Africa weren't even rational. But hatred and bigotry don't co-exist with reason, so for the writer to he irrational is unsurprising.
Get a fucking grip on reality. EVERYTHING IS ABOUT RACE IN THIS COUNTRY AND WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT? WHITE PEOPLE.
From the beginning this country has been ALL ABOUT RACE. GENOCIDE AND THEN FORCING INTO GHETTOS NATIVE AMERICANS. CHATTEL SLAVERY OF BLACK PEOPLE STOLEN FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY AND THEN EVEN STOLEN FROM THE NORTHERN PARTS OF THIS COUNTRY. THEN JIM CROW. THEN ALL OF THE WAYS DISCRIMINATION HAS CONTINUED - REDLINING, DISCRIMINATION IN EDUCATION, EMPLOYMENT, ENVIRONMENTAL SAFETY, HEALTH CARE, ETC. ETC. ETC. EVERY SINGLE DETAIL OF EVERY DAY LIFE. FFS continuous denial and doubling down on refusal to acknowledge and accept and atone for all of the racist hate that happens on a daily basis, makes YOU a racist POS and someone perfectly happy with the status quo. The status quo is FUCKED UP BEYOND BELIEF. The status quo is why we have the current DUMPSTER FIRE in D.C.
I swear to god I wish a horrific plague would wipe out all white people, better yet all of humanity. I am so sick of this hate filled shit show. The earth, the universe, the galaxy, and beyond will ALL BE BETTER OFF WHEN HUMAN BEINGS CEASE TO EXIST.
I am seriously at the end of my rope with this shit. What the fuck is wrong with you people?
You're right, driving off the cliff had nothing to do with race but everything to do with horrific murderous and suicidal insanity.
They didn't have to do it, right?
The trouble is, you find yourself compelled to find things to be enraged about. I suggest trying to break that cycle, then perhaps you can channel your negative energy into something positive.
and the photo,
are a stark metaphor for the relationship between the Leftist Elite and Black America.
Exploitation for ideological and political gain;
isolation from the wider society;
indoctrinated with a false world-view that renders totally unprepared to cope in the real world;
failure to provide with a skill set to enable to function or succeed in the wider world;
the Maternalistic Smothering Nanny State that steals the desire and ability to take care of one's self....
Black Child: "Officer; I need help,
I'm hungry and afraid;
please save me from the fear and despair and hopelessness I am enslaved by.....
before the officer can reply a shrill voice cuts in....
"Get away from that policeman!
The police are bad!
Everyone in society except me is bad!
Come get in the van, sweetie, let's go for a ride...."
If someone marries or adopts based on skin color just to show others how "woke" they are the problem isn't racism. They're just crazy and race is the outlet for it.
Parenthetically, there are words destined to disappear from usage soon, but not too soon for me. Woke is one. Referring to the person one loves and shares life with by the cold term 'partner' is a bit higher on my list of detestable neologisms.
Generally mental health professionals over prescribe drugs by a wide margin, in my opinion. In your case? Powerful anti psychotics and the rubber room are unfortunately the best options.
That's a bad case of cognitive dissonance disorder you've got.
As a start, the person to whom you respond didn't compare behavior. He/she simply accurately noted that both Nazis and some leftists have an obsession with race.
I recommend some basic logic courses, reading real journalists about current events and, well, don't call me in the morning. Or ever.
I think I can help that anxiety disorder a bit.
The Nazi party no longer exists as a meaningful political organizatuon. Hasn't since the end of this thing called WW2 you might have heard of. A few sad angry losers make noise about it online and more rarely publically, since by definition they're cowards.) But they have the same chances of affecting legislation as the NAMBLA folks do.
There. Load off your mind?
I'm really puzzled. Usually going back a bit helps me with that.
The Nazi party and the way they governed pre WW2 and wartime Germany were coldly and clinically evil. I know. Leftists hate that word. All values (except conservative or family ones) are equal etc etc etc. But evil was and is the most accurate word to describe the Third Reich. Anti Semitic and anti religious and anti intellectual hatred were the repellent heart of that party. Were. Until the end of the war they lost. They no longer exist as a party. Not in Germany and not here.
But the point that sailed high above your head was that motivations were compared @23. Not behavior. You however took it that the commentor was equating Nazi behavior historically with the current obsession with race the left has. Untrue, as you'll see if you re-read his or her comment.
I read an article yesterday that touched on some similar themes.
I'd be very interested in hearing your opinion.
I think you'll get farther dealing with actual racism if people like Me. Mudede and others quit crying wolf.
It does exist. There are people who want to blame their social or economic or psychological situations on others because actually making the changes they need requires effort. As long as that's true some 'other' can be made the patsy by the unscrupulous or equally deluded.
But it you pull a gun on a cop and get shot, it wasn't necessarily the color of your skin. If you sit at home all day on unemployment systemic racism isn't the problem. Laziness is. Eliminate probable causes for personal failure first. If there are still problems in a given community maybe then race or gender are the issue and need addressed.
If idiots like Mr. Mudede give all sorts of examples of the left decrying racism on false or nebulous claims it gives cover to those who want to believe racism doesn't exist. His behavior is not only irresponsible and dishonest. It's actually harmful.
And I am every bit as concerned about dumb white people in wealthy countries breeding like rabbits as I am about the countries we used to call the Third World. That doesn't mean we should not be concerned about population in the rest of the world. Just from a pragmatic point of view, the extra people born in a poor country are much more likely to starve than in the richer countries. I don't know how you can not be concerned about that. Consider the possibility that foreign aid etc. aimed at population control is an attempt to reduce suffering.
