On Larry Auster’s blog tonight, my favorite right-wing cyber-guru (and defender of white civilization) has posted an email from one of his many acolytes.
This reader earnestly suggests that the only hope for American blacks is “a spiritual commitment to Jesus Christ in which the Holy Spirit purges the black soul of sin and the black psyche of historical resentment.”
Mr. Auster responds with complete agreement, declaring this “a magnificent statement.” Auster elucidates:
“The solution cannot be in the ‘horizontal’ dimension, that is, in the relationship between blacks and non-blacks, because blacks will always be behind on the level of earthly functioning, leading to unjust racial resentment on the part of blacks and undeserved racial guilt on the part of whites.
“The solution can only be found in the ‘vertical’ dimension,” he continues, “... in the relationship between each black person and God through Jesus Christ, who will put each person’s self in true order and true freedom and remove the focus on the ‘horizontal’ differences and inequalities.
“Each black person will then live and perform and fulfil himself as a human being according to his own aspirations and abilities, without comparing himself to whites.”
Now see, Fisher? You too, DeAngelo. Didn’t I say you all were wasting your time on that ouga-bouga “White Supremacy” stuff? Here is Lawrence Auster, a highly intelligent white man who wants what’s best for the blacks... he has studied the race problem long and hard, and darned if he didn’t put his finger right on a workable solution!
So why do you black-nationalist types believe that white conservatives just want to oppress and discriminate against non-white peoples? If you would only open your mind up to different... Wait a second... Hang on, Mr. Auster wasn’t finished yet.
“This is not a complete solution, however, since the overall differences between the two groups’ respective levels of abilities and collective ethnocultural identities will persist. Therefore... structural pluralism, meaning separate development in the familial, social, residential, and even educational areas of life, would probably be appropriate....”
Ummm... okay. A return to Jim Crow. Well... it’s an idea. Whatever works, right?
Thank you for sharing, Mr. Auster. You prove once again that you are America’s boldest thinker! You go where sane bloggers fear to tread.
And now that I’m aware of your zeal for evangelizing the Negroes, I’ve signed you up for a one-year subscription to this:
UPDATE (01/10/08): At some point after I posted this, Mr. Auster amended the title of his post to read: “The only hope for the betterment of the black race (and the white race).”
