This promises to be comedy gold:
“KMO welcomes Jay Smith and Jeff Wilburn to the C-Realm to reflect upon the Age of Limits conference. Jay and Jeff, along with their girlfriends, accounted for most of the African-American conference-goers, and this leads to a discussion of how the on-going Peak Oil conversation is one carried out primarily by whites and, to some extent, aims to preserve white privilege and assumes that whites must take the leadership role in deciding how best to address the challenges of the coming long emergency. Both Jay and Jeff initially found the work of James Howard Kunstler to be valuable but later came to chafe at Jim’s seemingly dismissive attitude about black culture and the supposed failure of African-Americans to assimilate into mainstream society.”
Jim is smart enough to know the score on race.
He wisely avoids punching that tar baby because he knows exactly how black people are going to react to the collapse of BRA. We’re talking about a race of people (half of whom have an IQ below 85) who shoot each other in Detroit in arguments over Kool-Aid.
Just imagine … No EBT card. No WIC. No TANF welfare. No Medicaid. No Section 8 housing vouchers. No energy assistance. No public transportation. No affirmative action. No diversity jobs. No government jobs. No free lunches.
In 2009, 97.5 percent of the farmers and ranchers in America were White. Also in 2009, 39 percent of African-Americans in Michigan were on the EBT card. The typical negro in America lives in an urban area and depends on either the EBT card or a government job to survive.
No population in America is more dependent on the state, more dependent on the good will of other people, more vulnerable to the economic disruptions that could be produced by Peak Oil. The changes will be felt most acutely by those least able to take care of themselves, which is to say, by black people.
Think about it: reality itself is making White people poorer, which means the tax base is shriveling, which means budget deficits, which eventually means cuts in government services and programs that black people are dependent upon like the SNAP EBT card.
Eventually, the costs of the criminal justice system (the police, courts, and prisons necessary to restrain the Black Undertow) become unaffordable, as is already happening now in California. The Day The Criminals Are Released From Prison unfolds in black communities already strained by massive cuts in government jobs and services.
Where does it end? What becomes of black people after the collapse? I can’t wait to see how that “unwinds.”
