A year ago now, it was becoming obvious that black people were going to play the starring role in the eventual downfall of the BRA system.
This seems a bit counterintuitive: White people have put up with violent crime for decades, which is not as bad today as it was in the 1980s, and everyone already knows about disparities in crime statistics.
Much has changed in the last seven years though:
1.) The biggest change is the spread of smart phones and social media platforms – particularly video file sharing – that have undermined the ability of the so-called “mainstream” to create and control racial narratives.
2.) The second change is the hopes that were invested in the Obama presidency to move America beyond race – hopes which have always been centered on black people, which utterly backfired and delegitimized the myth of colorblindness.
3.) The third change is that black people have become visibly more emboldened with Obama in the White House.
4.) The fourth change is that long term structural factors in the American economy (energy scarcity, global aging, the hopelessly corrupted financial system) are putting the brakes on White flight.
5.) Finally, black people are the most dependent sector of the population on government services and employment, and their fortunes are disproportionately impacted by economic decline.
Suppose the shit were to hit the fan tomorrow: the most visible sign of this would undoubtedly be the criminal behavior of black people in public.
The collapse of BRA has to happen at the weakest link in social pyramid, which is to say, at the level of the bottom third of the black community that is the most ill adapted to the social confines of civilization.
It was a strategic decision to put black people in the spotlight. I would say after the Trayvon Martin affair that one day the actions of black people are going to prove to be the knell of the present historical epoch.
Update: Richard Spencer has noticed the same thing that I have noticed in the Stormfrontization of Conservatism: there is a huge and growing disconnect between the typical conservative base voter and the conservative establishment that enjoys “mainstream” status by refusing to challenge the dominant cultural taboos.
There is a night and day difference between the tone of comments posted on Free Republic in 2004 and the comments that are posted on Free Republic in 2012. The “mainstream” conservative websites like Breitbart, The Blaze, American Thinker, and Daily Caller might preach race blindness to maintain “respectability,” but they have been forced by the glacial “Stormfrontization” of the conservative base to respond to their appetites.
The fact is, the ordinary base conservatives want to see things like the Baltimore video, the destruction of the Trayvon Martin myth, and Derb’s viral article “The Talk: Nonblack Version” because that’s the content that is selling, that gets the most hits, that always gets the most comments.
The gap between the “mainstream” and the “extreme” is rapidly closing. It is not closing in BRA’s media which is more intolerant of dissent than ever before, but simply because the boundaries of “legitimate” public discourse have been narrowed to the point where they now provoke the sort of laughter, mockery, and ridicule that one could find in the Soviet bloc in the 1980s.
Everyone spouts the official ideology about race but fewer and fewer people actually believe it.
Note: It is worth noting that the status of black people in America was at the center of the War Between the States and the “Civil Rights Movement” that brought about the “Kali Yuga” as some have called it.
It would only be logical to expect black people to reassume their historical role of leading America into the next epoch of its existence.
