Class, Not Race, Divides America

Nothing is stranger in these tense days than the monotony of the inexact and non-descriptive mantra of “white privilege” and “white solidarity”—as if there is some monolithic white bloc, or as if class matters not at all. In truth, the clingers, the deplorables, the irredeemables, and Joe Biden’s “dregs” have very little in common with those who so libel them, but superficially share supposedly omnipotent and similar skin color. In the past, we saw such tensions among so-called whites in CNN’s reporting of the allegedly toothless rubes at Trump rallies, in the Strzok-Page text trove about Walmart’s smelly patrons, in the callous coastal disregard for the five-decade wasting away

The worst enemy that the Negro have is this white man that runs around here drooling at the mouth professing to love Negros and calling himself a liberal, and it is following these white liberals that has perpetuated problems that Negros have. If the Negro wasn't taken, tricked or deceived by the white liberal, then Negros would get together and solve our own problems. I only cite these things to show you that in America, the history of the white liberal has been nothing but a series of trickery designed to make Negros think that the white liberal was going to solve our problems. Our problems will never be solved by the white man." - Malcom X

If class also includes being a criminal, chronic drunk, drug addict, or jerk than I agree. This is all about behavior. The police show up because somebody called them. Try to pass a counterfeit $20? Pass out in a Wendy's drive thru? People are going to call the police. In both cases, if somebody had tried to handle these matters themselves, there would likely have been an altercation with a civilian instead of law enforcement.

Racial divide is not an American social issue, it's a business. Let's suppose for a moment that the army of social workers and the plethora of programs and benefits at the disposal of "The Community" were at all effective. Let's suppose that Americans of all races and ethnicities came together as one in mutual support and respect. Then what? What would happen to the millions employed by these charities, organizations and government? They wouldn't be needed. And let's not forget the Jackson-Sharpton shakedown artists, the civil rights law firms, the "angry" entertainers and TV personalities, the professional activists, educators and academics, even the police...add your own to the list. No one is going broke underestimating the American appetite for racial discord on either side of the issue. So, let's not honestly discuss the issues and consider other viewponts. Let's not talk about actual community solutions. Let's not act on our good and better sense. Certainly let's not take any responsibility to act. Let's argue about it some more. It's all their fault...

The issue is basic. The question is "how do you know something is true?" There are different ways to answer this question. One answer is that of the ancient world: one depends upon authority. Scholars in the west were bound to the dictates of Aristotle for a thousand years. He was the greatest mind. The Renaissance brought a paradigm shift, away from authority to reason and experiment. Since the 17th Century we have, in the European culture, followed truth as it is expressed in repeatable experiments. African culture has undergone no such paradigm shift. In that world story is the means of conveying information. So the story is that tear gas was used to clear the way for Pres Trump to appear at St John's Church. No such gas barrage was used, but that is the story and it is still believed. The story is that several black men died because of police brutality. The persons in question appear to have been resisting arrest, but that is not part of the narrative. In the narrative a black person is apprehended and killed, his crime being that he is black. That is the story of Black Lives Matter, which began with the death of Trayvon Martin. Martin was wailing on an Hispanic vigilante, but that is not part of the narrative. Martin was beating the head of the other person on the curb, but that is also not part of the narrative. The class issue is one of source of information. Who do you trust? Donald Trump (facts) or Al Sharpton (stories)?

That embattled Lincoln monument in Boston is an issue only because it spotlights Lincoln as the one who freed the slaves. And BLMAntifa will not abide anything recalling that the blacks owe thanks to a white man for freeing them from slavery. Whatever their historical narrative will be, it must not credit a white man for their release from bondage. (The 'Lincoln was racist' cries are simply smokescreens.)

Mask-wearing is becoming increasingly politicized.California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, announced Thursday that mask-wearing is compulsory in most public settings, making California the 11th state to mandate people to wear masks. Public spaces include every workspace, public transit, and any facility in which people receive medical care.President Trump, meanwhile, has discounted the benefits of wearing a mask to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. He told the Wall Street Journal in an interview published Thursday that Americans who wear masks are signaling disapproval of him. He added that his biggest problem with masks is that people fidget too much with them to be effective.

In a striking rebuke to President Trump, the Supreme Court Thursday rejected his plan to repeal the popular Obama-era order that protected so-called Dreamers, the nearly 800,000 young immigrants who were brought to this country illegally as children. Led by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., the court called the decision to cancel the program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, as arbitrary and not justified. The program allows these young people to register with the government, and if they have clean records, to obtain a work permit. At least 27,000 of these DACA recipients are employed as healthcare workers.
