        To be accurate, there is only one race — HUMAN. However, there are three main ethnic subdivisions thereof: alphabetically — Caucasoid, Mongoloid and Negroid.

        As to a “. . . problem religion . . .” Islam is a system of government masquerading as a religion; conversely, Communism is a religion masquerading as a system of government. Both are “problems.”

    Don’t care what color, race, or religion you are, so long as you behave yourself in a civilized manner to the rest of society.
    Doesn’t mean that certain colors, races and religions won’t be scrutinized a little more closely than others.

    Lions and tigers will eat peeps but talk about a race; a polar bear is the only one of God’s critters on earth that will track a human for miles across the tundra to play with, punish, and torture them, and incidentally to eat them. Now that’s a problem race. Important lesson there.

        Attacking their own, not limited to those mentioned but pervasive in all species, largely driven by that instinct to end all instincts, the one to survive.

        Never heard of any of them targeting, tracking, and killing/eating humans though…that is the polar bear’s exclusive claim to treachery.

    If you tell people they are oppressed because of their history, and teach them that it’s OK to behave like savages in the name of “retribution”, you shouldn’t be too surprised if they proceed to behave like savages.

    The truth is that their cultural shortfalls are due to their history being one of unending tribal warfare and clan blood feuds, coupled with superstition and a belief that anyone who Has An Actual Idea must be killed on general principles.

    This is as true of the Arab culture as it is the African culture, as well as the culture of China. The difference in China was that the necessity for irrigation led to the early development of government bureaucracy, which formalized the slaughter; see “hydraulic state”. (The bow is the ritual exposure of the neck to a social superior; it says “My life is yours to take if it pleases you to do so.”)

    Overall, it can be said that the disorganized tribalist culture makes a less dangerous neighbor than the formalized bureaucratic version. The latter’s rulers have an irritating habit of concluding that they are in fact gods.

    The difference isn’t race, it’s culture. If people believe they are victims, they blame someone else for their misfortunes. If they see themselves as people, they solve their problems and succeed.

    During WW II one third of the population of Jews were wiped out. They were left refugees or confined in displaced person camps, but today Jews are thriving worldwide. Cuban refugees in Florida are successful, as are Vietnamese boat people.

    But if one day the Israelis decided enough was enough and just moved away, handing Israel and its thriving economy to Hamas on a silver platter, within a year or so the country would be a third-world, desert pesthole, at war with all its neighbors.

    NO. Not a problem “race”. Genuine Africans, far blacker, are fine, upstanding citizens. Rural and suburban “African-Americans” are generally fine, upstanding citizens, despite great poverty in the former case. Most AAs in the military are fine, upstanding citizens.

    The problem is feral, urban, African-American males, especially between ages 12 and 42 or so. IOW, a dysfunctional urban sub-culture in which for three generations — which in that subculture is about 18 years per generation — FATHERS have largely been absent.

    • December 3, 2023 at 8:32 am

      As a retired Cavalry Scout, I agree with your observations.

      No one should ever care about someone else’s inherited genetic characteristics as no one can choose their parents.

      That being said, culture and group expectations will do their best to pull everyone down to the lowest common denominator. The urban culture and lack of make role models contribute to the problem. Policies that reward the single parent and punish households with a man in the house are the drivers of the culture decline.

      There are many other symptoms of the main problem which is lack of adult supervision and low, or no, expectations for children to achieve. (That’s race immaterial).

      These are problems exacerbated by progressive public policies.

      • December 3, 2023 at 10:56 am

        That and their ‘leaders’ and ‘celebrities’ like the ‘rap artists’ are constantly belittling anyone who wants to better themselves as ‘selling out to whitey’ while they push smoking dope, ‘cappin’ cops’ and ‘smashin’ ho’s’ as being an admirable life to be aspired to above all else. Add in ‘snitches get stitches’ and ‘don’t trust the po-po’ and ‘they OWE you so you can steal anything you want to as payment’ drilled into kids heads from the moment they can breathe on their own and you have a feral society that can only get worse.

        The judicial system is a farce as we saw when the fear of a mob stirred up by outside agitators pre-empted any semblance of a fair trial because the politicians were afraid more riots would make them look bad (and the same is true of the current islamic appeasement movement’.

        When law and order is pushed aside out of fear of a manufactured media driven mob then nothing else matters, the country is lost. This makes any pretend ‘kkk lynch mob’ look like a garden party.

        Nobody is owed anything except the chance to make it on their own without gov’t interference but for temporary, repeat, t-e-m-p-o-r-a-r-y assistance available to all equally with few qualifiers except circumstance and no special ‘gimmies’ based on race/religion/colour/place of birth/sex or anything else.

        Instead we’ve raised a generation of feral gimmies rooting through the political cash dumpster and attacking anyone who tries to close the lid.

      I knew a guy who was from the congo, came here legally, got 3 degrees, worked 3 jobs while he was doing it. he used to laugh when the african-americans would go on about racism.

      “look at me I am blacker than all of you combined and nothing has held me back! this is a wonderful country and you should be happy to be here! maybe you need a few months back in the mother continent to help you see it? I can arrange that, you know…”

    Chris touches the third rail…and sparks a discussion that is supposed to not be allowed by our cultural overlords, thereby becoming ever more common. Thank you Chris. Reality, as we know, is a problem that, like truth, can’t be suppressed forever. That said, is it “culture” or is it “race”? Does race beget culture? Does culture beget race? Or, as asserted by several commenters above, are there other dynamics and variables in play that are determinative?

      • December 3, 2023 at 2:26 pm

        LBJ’s Great Society reforms were the worst thing that could have happened to black Americans and their families. Made it easy to get on welfare but difficult to get off. It broke up black families as the feddle gummint became the daddy for too many welfare moms. Dads became superfluous.

        Up until then the black middle class was growing and black poverty was decreasing. Then the trend reversed once the Great Society reforms took effect. It was one of the biggest con jobs ever pulled off by Democrats and everyone is paying the price.

    Remove the father, bestow poverty, fail to instill proper values (particularly self-value), glorify thug behavior, remove/denounce accountability. (Thanks, LBJ! SPIT.) Oh, and reward for extra kids. Then, indoctrinate them to blame another tribe for their problems.
    If there are any lily-white “purists” in the audience, let them remember what ANY “race” can be talked into: mayhem and murder against a different tribe. Look at the amount of Caucasians in Antifa, for instance.
    I am a white man married into a black family. FIL was raised by his Mom in Chicago after his Dad was killed in a motorcycle wreck when he was little. Joined the Air Force, hauled his wife and three kids all over the world during the course of his TDY, retired A Master Chief. None of them ever arrested. (Though my Sweetie can turn on an Attitude whenever she wants to!)
    Our boys(now men) are respectable and mostly self-confident, all assets to our society.

      Not all cats are ‘feral’ and most certainly, not all of any species/race/subcategory/tribe or however you distimnguish beteen peopls are either, but there are definitely those who fit the description, in ALL subsets.
      Call them whatever you want to, there are those in every grouping who attach themselves firmly to the taxpayer’s teat and will growl at anyone who tries to wean them off of it. ‘Race’ and I dislike that term as much as any but it’s become synonymous enough with culture, even if if it isn’t exactly, to be a convenient and recognizeable term; isn’t as much a division point in itself as those who’ve decided that a people musn’t be allowed to better themselves because that somehow lessens them and takes power and control away from them. The professional race baiters like sharpton, ‘bama, biden et al and the thug encouragers like the ‘rap artists’ are the current crop of tribal rulers who can’t bear to think that someone might slip out from their control and not think the way they’re telling them to. These are evil people and white, black, brown, pink or plaid; they can’t be allowed tgo turn people against one another because the resulting conflict brings them prestige and money. We all bleed the same colour and they’re only too happy to see that blood spill in order to keep their positions.

  • December 3, 2023 at 11:32 am

    Another viewpoint is that we are racing toward the problems that are manufactured to distract us from the unconstitutional, bureaucratic overreach which has taken over nearly every aspect of what was once a republic. It’s a race toward problems as opposed to a stand for freedom. Every new problem created by all those alphabet agencies is a new race toward slavery. It is apparent that most of people in modern government have not read and understood the constitution and they certainly don’t understand it’s original purpose.

    • December 3, 2023 at 11:13 pm

      The new “gun control” bill Democrats just introduced is a case in point.

      I have little doubt that it will pass, with broad GOP support, and be signed into law by Joe. It’s what he’s had dreams about (many of them wet) for fifty years.

      There used to be something called a “social contract”. We, the people, paid taxes and didn’t do uncouth things, in return for which our “betters” gave us laws and police to enforce them, courts to punish those who broke the laws to hurt us, schools to educate our children, and so on.

      All we asked beyond that was to be left in peace, be protected from foreign threats, and etc. And in return, we didn’t kick if our “betters” skimmed some off the top to enrich themselves, because we understood the nature of greed.

      Now, they have taken away the police, and the courts. They have turned the schools into indoctrination centers, and our children can no longer read, write or do “‘rithmetic”, but they can shout slogans, riot, and throw firebombs. They no longer protect us from foreign threats- they applaud them and shout “More! More! Harder! Harder!” like a ten-dollar hooker at 3 AM hoping for a five-buck bonus.

      And the criminals rule the streets because our “betters” admire them. And depend on them for their “party drugs” and domestic help.

      And we are now to be rendered defenseless against the criminals. Who will never be charged with violating this law, any more than they are charged with anything else now.

      There is a fine line between cynicism and greed, as opposed to sadism and tyranny. And our “betters” have pretty much crossed it.

      We have very likely reached our Oliver Cromwell moment.

      If this bill becomes law, we may have to exercise John Ross’ “Unintended Consequences” option.

      Or as Kipling said

      When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
      They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
      But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
      And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “Stick to the Devil you know.

    Other than a few DNA based medical peculiarities, ‘Race’ is relevant only to racists. The overwhelming majority of what is viewed as and called racism today is not racism. It is culturalism, as in being opposed to a specific culture. That has been recognized in numerous comments above. In the 50’s & 60’s I was mostly raised in Houston, where at the time true racism was fairly ubiquitous. I was inculcated into racism, and subsequently EDUCATED out of it. I am still very much ANTI the dominant Black Thug poor-oppressed-me culture, but I’m not racist at all.

    Most of my time in the USAF mirrors your familial experience.. Character has no race; nor does lack of character. (Same goes for religion.) Shortly before I arrived there in the late 70’s there were mess hall riots at my northern tier base (Master Diver, were you there?). And some of my black contemporaries worried about having official photos in their records, but from my (albeit white) perspective those problems seemed to recede through the 90’s. Towards the end of my career, all seemed excited to have CJCS Colin Powell show up at my unit to personally present a medal for actions in the follow up to Desert Storm.

    There were problems no doubt, but we continued to make progress until about 2008 when color blindness became a dirty concept.

  • December 3, 2023 at 6:09 pm

        These groupings, however, can be used to get bad people control over all the other groups, and it doesn’t have to be for very long. Immense damage can be inflicted in just a few short years, as both our countries and a lot in Europe are starting to find out what their forced embrace of ‘diversity’ was really all about.

        In order for all peoples to live toigether in peace and harmony, they have to WANT to live together without distinction and without forcing their ‘distinctiveness’ on everyone else while ignoring that of others.
