Is The South Lost?

Dixie

Thomas Sowell writes:

“Now that census data show — for the first time in American history — the number of white babies born exceeded by the number of babies born to non-white minorities the question is: What does this mean for the future of American society?

Politically, it means that minorities who traditionally vote overwhelmingly for Democrats can ensure that the country veers ever further to the left over the years, making America more like the welfare states of Europe, whose unsustainable spending led ultimately to finical crises and widespread riots …

Yet when all is said and done, the future political direction of the country seems painfully clear for these demographic trends, unless something happens to change the current correlation between race and political party affiliation. Moreover, even that may not be enough.”

Here’s the percentage of the black population in the South on the eve of the White Man’s Revolution of 1876:

1870

Alabama – 48 percent black
Georgia – 46 percent black
South Carolina -59 percent black
Mississippi – 54 percent black
Florida – 49 percent black
Louisiana – 50 percent black
Texas – 31 percent black
North Carolina -37 percent black
Tennessee – 26 percent black
Arkansas – 25 percent
Missouri – 7 percent
Kentucky – 17 percent
Virginia – 42 percent
Maryland – 22 percent

Here’s the percentage of the black population in the South in 2012:

2012

Alabama – 26.2 percent
Georgia – 30.5 percent
South Carolina – 27.9 percent
Mississippi – 37 percent
Florida – 16 percent
Louisiana – 32 percent
Texas – 11.8 percent
North Carolina – 21.5 percent
Tennessee – 16.7 percent
Arkansas – 15.4 percent
Missouri – 11.6 percent
Kentucky – 7.8 percent
Virginia – 19.4 percent
Maryland – 29.4 percent

What’s the moral of the story? Just because a state has a large black population doesn’t mean it will stay that way or get worse. Half the black population in America relocated to the North and West in the Jim Crow era.

In 1901, Rep. George White of North Carolina gave his farewell speech to Congress in the aftermath of the Wilmington Insurrection of 1898:

“This, Mr. Chairman, is perhaps the Negroes’ temporary farewell to the American Congress; but let me say, phoenix-like he will rise up some day and come again. These parting words are in behalf of an outraged, heartbroken, bruised, and bleeding, but God-fearing people, faithful, industrious, loyal people-rising people, full of potential force.

Mr. Chairman, in the trial of Lord Bacon, when the court disturbed the counsel for the defendant, Sir Walter Raleigh raised himself up to his full height and, addressing the court, said, “Sir, I am pleading for the life of a human being.”

The only apology that I have to make for the earnestness with which I have spoken is that I am pleading for the life, the liberty, the future happiness, and manhood suffrage for one-eighth of the entire population of the United States.”

It would be 28 years before another African American was elected to Congress. In an early demonstration of attrition through enforcement, the states that chose the policy of resistance over submission succeeded in driving out large numbers of blacks to other states.

The same thing might happen again with Hispanics: illegal aliens mignt flee the states that choose resistance while relocating en masse to those states which are more willing to accomodate them.

Wayne, You said “in Southern New England, everywhere you look is a Hispanic.” Let me tell ya, in my little town, the white kids still staff the fast food and donut shops and the retail stores. I think they would pitch a fit in this town if they got replaced by brownies. These are the only jobs around, the white natives “own” them because they have a work ethic and don’t dream of getting on welfare. That said, even a lot of employed people are on HUD and SNAP now, because the jobs don’t pay enough. But better whites have… Read more »

We’re talking apples and oranges here, Hunter. I say “They’re red and crunchy!”, and you retort with “No, they’re orange and juicy!”. Looking at the state-by-state racial demographics a couple years ago, I noticed a stark dividing line running from east to west across the country. It starts at the Mason-Dixon line, heads south separating the South Atlantic states from the inland states, turns west, separating the Gulf Coast and Mexican Border states from the rest, turns north following the Nevada-Utah line to the Oregon border, then heads west again to the Pacific where it keeps going a few thousand… Read more »

West Virginia is looking better and better, according to these statistics. The Dakotas are another bright spot, but the compositions of the rural areas of the states are not compared. Rural areas of many northern and Great Plains states may still be much whiter than the rural South. I’ve never even MET a black farmer or farm worker, but I know they’re common in some other states.

I’ve never even met any, YET. Current government programs setting up subsidised mini-farms for “disadvantaged minorities in agriculture” on lands currently owned by retirement-aged white traditional farmers mean that could change soon.

Like northern blacks, Asians are mostly metropolitan, but Asian professionals (doctors for example) do spearhead into white rural areas.

Once again we’re talking apples and oranges. I’m not comparing the South vs. the rest of the country, or the percentage of blacks in each. I’m comparing the two incipient racial nations, Northern and Middle America, aka the Cold States vs. Southern Tier America, aka the Warm States, and the percentage of whites in each. Your statistics help make my point for me: the large majority of blacks, Hispanics and Asians (and probably American Indians, Pacific Islanders and people of mixed race as well) all live in the Warm States (NOT the traditional South), just as the large majority of… Read more »

“Pittsburgh: 88.2% white
Cincinnati: 83.4%
Providence: 82%
Minneapolis-St Paul: 81.9%

For what it’s worth, every time I see a Somali female thing (they’re NOT women, frankly) walking with her sarong (I don’t know what the term is for their dress, it’s just not white) down the street ANYWHERE in Mpls/St.Paul, my blood boils. ONE negro is TWO too many, frankly. May Ellison roast in hell, and right speedily.

And, with these demographics, John de Nugent [www.johndenugent.com] is correct.
Pittsburgh IS the whitest city in the USA.

The Mason-Dixon line is part of the east-west racial fault line because Pennsylvania is 79.5% white compared to Maryland, which is only 54.7% white.

Mosin,

Gibsmedat farms for “minority-disadvantaged farmers” will work if they give them to Asian and perhaps Hispanics, but not blacks. Blacks hate that work and will sell their farm first chance they get.

“Here are the numbers that prove it:
New York – 21.7 percent
New Jersey – 25.7 percent
Pennsylvania – 10.5 percent
Maryland – 25.3 percent
Delaware – 18.7 percent
Connecticut – 19.8 percent
Rhode Island – 19.6 percent
Massachusetts – 18.9 percent”

I note that Pennsylvania is “browning” only half as quickly as the others, and Fr John says “Pittsburgh IS the whitest city in the USA,” which anchors the northern Appalachian region that contrasts with the Philadephia metropolitan area. From where in Maryland does +25% browning come?! Not Delmarva or the Appalachian panhandle.

First of all, I’m not an American so I have no dog in the eternal Yankee vs. Southron battle royale. Secondly, I favour no American state or region over any other, period. Third, I do admit to a strong bias in favour of white Americans over all others, wherever they might live. That’s why I’m so interested in, and saddened by, the ongoing demographic collapse of the white population in what is still the world’s greatest country. The terms Northern and Middle America, Southern Tier America, Cold States and Warm States, and the concepts behind them are mine and mine… Read more »

The demographic collapse of America and the rest of the West has been caused by our traitorious politicians and their string-pullers and bagmen. As an outsider, I would never presume to have even a small fraction of your knowledge of American history and politics. However, sometimes foreigners can see the big picture in a way that the natives can’t, because we’re not saddled with any regional baggage or bias. You’re not being rude, Hunter. I appreciate any and all feedback, good, bad or indifferent. Thanks. The concept of the east-west racial fault line, which led to the Cold States/Warm States… Read more »

damnyankees have done us more harm than the negro. it’s the dmanyankee that unleashed the negro and it’s damnyankees and negros that form voting blocks here in the South that give power to our very few home grown DWL’s and yankees need to come to grips with the fact that they benefited from negro slavery in the South, in a very real and direct way. It gave the yankees cheap raw materiel, the tariffs on cotton protected yankee industry by making their good cheaper in the domestic market, and the tariff money paid for structural improvements in the north, not… Read more »

jews made more off of niggers than any Yankee did. The south brought them in to tend their fields, not the north. The jew then stabbed the dim witted southron and ruined what they had. You see, the money was up north. jews are money. They used Yankees to do it. Over a hundred years later the south still is following the jew narrative of divide and conquer. Do any of you honestly think the soldiers of the north even knew what they were fighting for? They were invading the south for paychecks or just plain survival. Your problem should… Read more »

The string-pullers are often anti-white lobbyists with lots of money and influence, like the $PLC of Montgomery, Alabama, for instance. Blaming the damnyankees for everything is exactly what I meant when I said that the natives are sometimes too saddled with regional baggage and bias to see the big picture. Should Northerners take most of the blame for civil rights, immigration, gay marriage, and the election of Obama? Absolutely. Should Southerners get a pass for LBJ, Carter, Bush I, Clinton and Bush II? I don’t think so. You’re talking about raw numbers of blacks, while I’m talking about percentages. The… Read more »

Well, the Southern states are still growing. Georgia grew by 130,000 just between 2010 and 2011. What percentage of those 130,000 people (newborns, immigrants, internal migrants) are white? I’m going to guess that it’s a small minority, probably a very small minority. According to the Pew Center, 11 of the 12 states that had the fastest growing Hispanic populations between 2000 and 2010 were in the South (the exception was South Dakota). While they concede that the illegal immigrant population shrank in Florida and Virginia between 2007 and 2010, they also claim that it grew in Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma… Read more »

Also, we recently heard the utterly depressing but entirely predictable news that non-white births outnumbered white ones for the first time in the history of the republic. I’d sure like to see a state-by-state breakdown of births by race. But until then I’m going to go out on a limb here and predict that non-white births were the majority in 14 of the 16 Warm States (excepting Alabama and Delaware), while white births were still the majority in 31 of the 34 Cold States (excepting New York, New Jersey and Illinois).

@ NL: First you have to be able to bring something to that table! If white people ceased to exist in the US today, the whole country would fall into 3rd world status in less than 12 months. There would be a plethora of diseases wiping out whole cities, infrastructure would crumble, electricty grids would shut down and there would soon be no more food to eat. In essence, you’d all be dead. So far you blacks haven’t been able to produce anything that resembles a civilization. No written language, no democracy. Not even the wheel have you invented.
