The book was published in January without much fanfare. I’m left wondering if it includes his thoughts on White senior citizens that he published in the wake of the 2010 midterm elections.
The Truthout interview seems to indicate that Wise has reverted to his usual disingenuous arguments about the need to set aside racial differences to create a multiracial egalitarian utopia with a more equitable distribution of wealth.
He is making the pitch to the idealism of ignorant and gullible Whites who are unfamiliar with the history of such failed experiments in Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe, and South Africa. There is no hope for us “nostalgic white folks” who are “deeply committed to whiteness.”
Toussaint L’ouverture’s 1801 Constitution for Saint-Domingue was the first constitution in history to prohibit racial discrimination and envision a race neutral colorblind society. In 1804, Jean-Jacques Dessalines ordered the extermination of the Whites of the “Republic of Haiti.” The last remaining 3,000 to 5,000 Whites in Saint-Domingue were massacred and their property was confiscated.
The 1805 Constitution of Hayti banned Whites from citizenship and owning property and declared that Hayti was henceforth a black republic. The Haitian flag was created by Dessalines who ripped the white out of the French tricolor and stitched the red and blue back together.
There is no such thing as “white privilege”: blacks create inferior societies because they are an inferior race. In West Africa, the Lebanese merchants are the market dominant minority. In East Africa, Asian merchants are the market dominant minority. In the United States, Korean and Pakistani merchants are often the market dominant minority in black neighborhoods.
Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, and Finland are not at the top of the U.N. Human Development Index because they are oppressing the blacks in their midst. Ireland, Hungary, and Poland rank “very high” in the U.N. Human Development Index (above Portugal) even though these countries have no history of imperialism in Africa.
The racial inequality in the United States is just an effect of an inferior race living among a superior race. It is replicated in the UK, the Netherlands, France, Belgium, Canada, Brazil, South Africa and everywhere where blacks are to be found living among non-blacks. The universal pattern suggests a biological rather than an environmental cause.
Racial inequality follows blacks like their shadow because it is a reflection of their behavior. It is a product of their lower intelligence and lower conscientiousness. That’s why its most extreme manifestations are found in places like Detroit, Haiti, Somalia, Niger, and the Democratic Republic of Congo where blackness has been left alone to realize its full potential.
What can be done about racial inequality?
1.) Since the 1970s, the West has squandered more than $1 trillion dollars on foreign aid in sub-Saharan Africa.
2.) Haiti has been transformed into a “Republic of NGOs.” Billions of dollars of foreign aid were spent in Haiti before and after the 2010 earthquake.
3.) The Whites were driven out of Haiti, Zimbabwe, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Asians were kicked out of Uganda by Idi Amin. In each case, the result was an economic disaster.
4.) Integration failed to eliminate the racial gap in test scores in American public schools.
5.) Democracy has failed to uplift blacks to equality.
6.) In Africa, blacks have experimented with liberalism, socialism, communism, anarchism, capitalism, one-party states and multi-party democracy, and have failed to achieve equality. Independence has been tried. Colonialism has been tried. The U.N. has intervened in African states on countless occasions.
7.) White guilt has been tried. It doesn’t matter how guilty Whites feel about blacks or how much they are willing to do for them. Decades of social programs based on White guilt have failed to realize the long sought goal of racial equality.
8.) Black children have been adopted into White households. That doesn’t work either.
Tim Wise doesn’t have a solution to racial inequality because there is no solution. If there was a testable social program that could achieve racial equality like the Manhattan Project succeeded in splitting the atom, it would have been implemented years ago.
It was easier and cost much less for Americans to put a man on the moon. It was easier to land a probe on Titan or send Voyager 2 to the edge of the solar system than it is for black people to achieve racial equality with the assistance of the federal government.
The only thing that is really accomplished by constantly telling black people that they are our equals and that White people are responsible for racial inequality, and then watching as blacks fail to achieve equality, is to stir up a pathological hatred of Whites and encourage violence against us.
Of course that’s the whole point for Uncle Tim.
