Walk a Mile in My Shoes..: A Quick Thought on "Black Like Me"

The book was quickly made into a poorly received movie
We've never read it anywhere else, probably because the book is considered a holy sacrament by Disingenuous White Liberals (DWL) and a mild form of acceptable torture pornography by Crusading White Pedagogues (CWP), but Stuff Black People Don't Like has a theory that much of the book Black Like Me is fictional.

Black Like Me, passed off as non-fiction, is a book by John Howard Griffin (white guy) that chronicles his experiences in the Deep South in 1959 after he had his skin darkened via a combination of both drugs and artificial sunlight.

Passing on reading it in AP English, we just picked it up to read now. It reads like a DWL and CWP wet dream, a book that can condition young, impressionable white students to accept the totality of Black Run America (BRA) now.

A movie was produced off of the script non-fiction book Griffin wrote, which can be viewed on YouTube.

Our perspective of the United States of America at SBPDL comes from a world more than two score removed from the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Born more than a score after this date, we have seen a world erected where any and all criticism of Black people is forbidden. Reading Black Like Me, one enters a world that seems as distant and unrecognizable as something out of pages of Upton Sinclair's prose.

Never understanding white guilt and realizing that a book entitled White Like Me - documenting a white person's darkening of their skin (think Soul Man) and entering the world of academia and then the corporate sector to show how capable Black people  are treated now- would never fly, it is virtually impossible to try and walk in a mile in a Black persons shoes.

Time magazine wrote this of the book back in 1960:
"The Hate Stare." Accepted without question as a Negro by both races, Griffin drifted through four states—Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia—well-dressed, comparatively well-heeled ($200 in traveler's checks), obviously well-educated, under his own name and ready to reveal the truth to anyone who asked. No one asked. His skin was black, and that was enough. 

Throughout the South, Griffin encountered what he calls "the hate stare." Offering his seat to a white woman in a New Orleans streetcar, he watched her face stiffen into hostility. "What are you looking at me like that for?" she asked sharply, and turned away muttering, "They're getting sassier every day."

The Dark Night. Griffin began his masquerade with the feeling that as a Southern white, he lacked compassion for the Negro, as well as a true understanding of the Negro's lot. His four-week journey strengthened both of these impressions. "I had no idea what they have to go through," he said. "I literally bawled myself to sleep some nights. I learned that when it is night, when it is dark, then the Negro feels safest. Langston Hughes's line, 'Night coming tenderly/ Black like me,'* has real meaning." 

After four weeks as a Negro, Griffin harbors new doubts about his own race. "I like to see good in the white man," he said last week. "But after this experience, it's hard to find it in the Southern white."
A "Hate Stare?" Any time a white person travels into a predominately Black major city to attend a sporting or cultural event, "Hate Stares" from Black people are sure to follow. Think of areas you assiduously avoid where restaurants and gas stations might offer a more convenient opportunity for fuel for both you and your vehicle. 

You avoid them because of the "Hate Stares" you will get from a new generation of Black people, a growing underclass of people reliant on the state to subsist in Section 8 Housing, and survive on EBT cards, free cell phone service and welfare.


One of these weekends, we at SBPDL would love to venture into Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Birmingham or another city with majority Black-areas that are crime-ridden to showcase what a true "Hate Stare" is in 2011.

YouTube and Worldstarhiphop.com provide the invaluable service of showcasing 365Black behavior if you want to see it from the confines of your own home. At some point soon, some enterprising soul is going to have to venture into the world Daniel Tosh mocks routinely and update for a 21st century audience John Howard Griffin's "Hate Stares."

Unlike Black Like Me, a work of purported non-fiction that can never be verified as authentic, videos documenting 365Black are real.

One last thought: the United States Department of Education has invested heavily in indoctrinating students to go against what nature intended, spending vast sums of time highlighting past racism by white people against Black people as part of the core curriculum. A dedication to the tenets of BRA has seemingly augmented the so-called three "R's" of education (readin', writin' and 'rithmetic) with a fourth "R," that of 'white racism.'


Try giving a Black person a "Hate Stare" now and see what happens. All white people can do is meekly lock their car door when they approach and turn their head away in shame, hoping that their car isn't broken into (hilariously spoofed in the Stuff White People Like comedy Harold and Kumar 2).

"Hate Stares" are solely looks that Black people give now-a-days, for a non-white performing such an action toward a Black person is grounds for unspeakable forms of retaliation.

Black Like Me is a work of fiction, a beloved book pushed as non-fiction by DWLs and CWPs in an all-out effort to inculcate students of the past wickedness of long dead nation. Try being a white person (or even a Black person) living among the Black Undertow now; your car and property constantly under threat of being stolen or violated in a nation that cares little for reporting the obvious truth of the Black criminality.

Maybe walking a mile in another person's shoes was necessary in a world without Flip cams and cell phones with video recording technology. But in our world today, Black people find no shame in documenting 365Black behavior for everyone else to see and enjoy, even uploading it to WorldStarHipHop.com for their 15 minutes of fame.

Knowing how Black people treat Black students just for earning honor roll status (thereby Acting White), one might be smart to avoid any attempt at replicating the purported adventures of Griffin.

If this country was so bad, why did so few blacks seek a better quality of life somewhere else? The emigration to Liberia was a tiny fraction, even fewer after the Civil War, and Marcus Garvey got practically no one to go.

It seemed to me that far more blacks came to this country than left it. Why is that?

"Black Like Me" was definitely a hoax.

"White Like Me" is an everyday reality for the rest of us.

By the way, Spencer Tracy played Griffin in the movie version. They literally just put some kind of dark substance on Tracy so that it looked like a white man with shoe polish on his face. Yet everyone was supposed to pretend he was passing for a black man.

I feel great sorrow to the White guy in black face who was given the "stare" by White folks.

However, I'm far more sorrowful for the thousands of White kids who are beaten to a pulp every day in America on school buses and campuses by blacks who think assaulting Whites is a fun sport.

I don't blame White folks for treating blacks with suspicion and contempt. Their persistent bad behavior has earned it; far more than a nasty stare.

The rapper Ice Cube produced a "Black Like Me" type show for FX a few years back. I didn't watch it but I recall commercials about it at the time:

I have no comments on it because I didn't watch it, but maybe some has.

Professor Snape said...

I have recommended this book several times on this website and I feel it is recommended reading to all whites.

Why, SBPDL, are you bashing it? Because I have quoted it on this site in hopes someone will pick it up and read it?

Griffin was not able to fully separate himself from his white mentality - a deep failing, I think, in the book. I think I mentioned to Desiree in a past thread that that level of empathy for blacks is hard to accomplish when white privilege has been the norm for all of us; even the white liberal has a limited consciousness.

Nevertheless, Griffin's book is of great value in that he is somewhat of an "acceptable" portal into blackness. The sad reality is most of us have become desensitized to the sins of our forefathers and have refused - be it consciously, like on this blog, or subconsciously - to acknowledge it. With Griffin, we say that if he can feel blacks' pain and their anguish, then it is tangible and legitimate.

This is why I suggest the book. It is a wonderful book; in some areas I believe Griffin "lays it on thick" and gets more than a little bit of satisfaction in his donned blackness to the point he seems as if he enjoys being a victim of white racism, a terrible thought to me. But this is so minor - so incredibly minor - that it does not take over from the entire goodness of the piece. He should be applauded for his one-man sociological study.

It's ironic that you criticize his experiencing "hate stares" as a black man and yet you say the alleged "hate stares" whites get from blacks are valid. Griffin explains that they are both the same, although he, as I've mentioned before, wrongly thinks they have the same sort of origin; he's wrong: a white "hate stare" to a black is the product of multigenerational conditioning regarding unfounded black worthlessness, while a black "hate stare" received by a white is a reaction, a resentfulness formed out of the brutality and hatred whites had inflicted.

Perhaps the same can be said now for the "hate stare"; whites do it out of bigotry, blacks out of resentment. The minority is considered a radical when he organizes for justice but he is often a reactionary to white racism and violence. I'd argue that if the status quo had not been so savagely unequal, white people might still enjoy the benefits of privilege in a more overt manner than today; minorities would have just went on about their business.

I find it terrible that you, SBPDL, can be so hard-hearted and myopic as to bash this book. I have chastised you before for your scant knowledge of American history. This book is not fiction and it only verifies history, especially a point I've mentioned many times: the main reason for segregation and Jim Crow following the Civil War was due to the fear of white women having sex with black men. This was also pointed out by Gunnar Myrdal in the 1940s.

That is the problem with your point-of-view in terms of going about this goal in bashing blacks as you have. You refuse to acknowledge the foundations, the beginnings of what you see as dysfunction. All you acknowledge is end-product.

If I should take your word and believe that you are not "sneakily" advocating a sort of "hands off" genocide of blacks (I admit this is getting increasingly hard for me, especially since you've planned to attack educated black women), you should at least entrench yourself in black history.

I am not talking about the stuff you learn in February. I am talking about actual black history; blacks are an integral part of American history but their stories and experiences are too often swept under the rug.

Do not bash Griffin's work. He had more balls than any white man and I thank him for his selflessness in trying to educate us in the error of our ways.

Read the book with an open mind in lieu of talking ignorant trash. It is a fine piece.

Professor Snape said...

"Foxsnooze.com":

How can you be so ignorant as to say blacks beat whites up for the color of their skin? Is this just a surmise based on bully-victim skin color differences, or do you have factual evidence to back up such tripe?

Your emotion-based, irrational thinking paints the picture of black teens targeting white teens like a hunter targets deer! You cannot expect to be taken seriously with such ridiculous hyperbole?

It was a few months ago that I'd read documents on the Smoking Gun website that detailed the white rapper Eminem's bullying history. A sad experience he'd had as a kid. He freely states that a black kid named D'Angelo Bailey used to mercilessly beat him up. It probably was because he was white; who knows? However, this experience of Eminem's never made him hate blacks.

Why is his experience not more common in this forum? Perhaps because Eminem also had intimate relationships with blacks that could ameliorate the former negative situation. I think this is the important difference. Most whites on this site who happened to be the victim of blacks - most likely the "Because I was white" reason for the incidents are claimed in hindsight - were unable to experience this positivity.

Because I've experienced blacks in positive ways, it is hard for me to imagine that a mugging or an assault would change my egalitarian stance. My God, when whites are assaulted by whites, why do they not begin to hate all white people? Because they have positives to act as a counterbalance!

All of this hate predicated upon one situation is just nonsensical when you break it down.

I've always stated that experiences should be respected - of blacks and whites and whoever else. However, negative experiences should not be used as security blankets or impetus to do more psychological damage to oneself.

I don't blame White folks for treating blacks with suspicion and contempt. Their persistent bad behavior has earned it; far more than a nasty stare.

Employ intellectual honesty, my God, man. A white giving an unknown black a "hate stare" is bigotry and prejudice. You cannot assume a black will misbehave without looking like a racist fool. Would you not agree that a woman giving a random man a "hate stare" based on her taking "Women's Studies 101" was judgmental, unfair, and irrational? It is the same thing.

You have no knowledge of history.

One,

That show was called "Black/White" and it lasted one dreadful season on FX. Come to think of it, that might be the only show on FX with Black people.

The ratings were abysmal and the show was panned by critics because it didn't serve as a platform for that "ah-ha" moment where white people realized they were all evil.

Here's NPR on the show:

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5249579

and Slate called the show "creepy":

http://www.slate.com/id/2137734/

I recall watching one episode and thinking how amazing it would be if a criminal used this makeup technology to just rob banks and other places. Because the media wouldn't identify the person in news articles, it would be the perfect crime.

Oh wait.. didn't that actually happen?

FX is a channel devoted solely to white shows like "Lights Out", "Always Sunny", "Archer", "Rescue Me", and "Justified".

The asinine attempt to make an after-school special for prime-time TV like "Black-White" was a ratings and critical disaster.

Professor Snake,

"Perhaps because Eminem also had intimate relationships with blacks that could ameliorate the former negative situation. I think this is the important difference."

I've had positive and negative experiences. However the simple reality is percentages.

Blacks have a lower average IQ which means they have a larger percentage in the lower IQ ranges which is where you find a disproportionate amount of violence and criminality.

If whites have 15% in that range and blacks have 45% and a third of the people in that range are inclined to violence and criminality then on average a hundred white people will have five such individuals and a hundred black people will have fifteen.

This is further increased by
- critical mass. having a larger number of violent people creates a more violent culture. the same difference is seen between blue and white collar groups of any ethnicity
- grey morality. anti-whites in the schools and media covering up black crime while making a fanfare out of any anti-black injustice creates a climate of black privilige and black entitlement to revenge
- this is particularly true in schools where white teachers ignore racial attacks against white children and in some ways encourage it

Lastly, i haven't seen any research on this but i have a personal belief based on experience that empathy exists along a bell curve also and that bell curve is shifted right or left of the human average for different racial groups in a similar way to the IQ one but along a scale which runs from psychopath at one end to irrationally altruistic on the other.

I believe the black bell curve is shifted to the left compared to the human average and the white bell curve is shifted to the right of the human average. What this means is if for example white people have 1-2% sociopaths and 5-6% irrational altruists then blacks have maybe 5-6% psychopaths and only 1-2% irrational altruists.

As both these things are bell curves there are plenty of black people who are on the right of both those curves and they are perfectly decent people.

However, in percentage terms when anti-whites force integrate a neighborhood or a school what they are doing is massively increasing the risk to white people's children and they've been lying about this for 50 years.

There have already been MILLIONS of victims too many and it needs to stop.

Thanks Snape.

I can think of no greater deterrent to reading it.

"That show was called "Black/White" and it lasted one dreadful season on FX."

That show was agenda-driven and just awful.

I found it amazing that it AVOIDED putting the black people (disguised as white) into any situation where they would have to deal with racial animus FROM blacks.

Also, the way the blacks went nuts over the word "creature" (intended as a compliment) was absolutely ridiculous.

However, the white dude (disguised as black) was simply priceless.

White Devil said...

"However, this experience of Eminem's never made him hate blacks."

I guarantee you he says 'nigger' in the privacy of his home - he is completely surrounded by degenerate Africans so there is no question about it.

"Because I've experienced blacks in positive ways, it is hard for me to imagine that a mugging or an assault would change my egalitarian stance."

This sentence, alone, is evidence that you are almost completely shielded from the African, and that your 'positive' experiences with these people are a manufactured illusion from the entertainment and news media.

Your ancestors must be rolling over in their graves. I guarantee all your insanity about the ‘wonders’ of diversity have no practical application in your personal life. In your mating and migratory habits, snape, you are INDISTINGUISHABLE from the Ku Klux Klan, and, the only real diversity you REALLY enjoy – is in your choice of restaurants. Shame on you and your hypocrisy.

Move to the outskirts of a ghetto - take your well-to-do, egalitarian, we're all equal tripe with you and see how your African 'experiences' pan-out in the real world.

Ah ... but it's so much safer to experience "The Blacks" through film and television - you have your hot-coco, your snuggie and a signed copy of "Black Like Me" so pretentiously positioned on the coffee table, right next to your signed copy of SWPL, for all to see.

You are such a proud pedagogue, aren't you?

Snapes,

One clue that black-on-White assaults are racist are phrases like, "Beat Whitey Day" at the Iowa state fair.

http://www.startribune.com/local/south/25472764.html?source=error

In New York black college students announced they were beating a white diner because he was having dinner with a black man:

http://poststar.com/news/local/article_49ba16fa-3ec0-11e0-b6b4-001cc4c002e0.html

Speaking of terrible minds to waste, there were the black college footballers in California who set out to assualt the "first white person" they see.

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/11082/1134073-100.stm

It appear the "beat the first White person I see" is quite the sport among black thugs. Recall the 81-year-old man beaten to death in Virginia.

http://www.wset.com/story/13118348/teenage-murder-suspects-appear-in-court?redirected=true

The above are only a few of the examples that manage to by-pass the media sensors and give us a (more) honest look at black-on-White racial violence.

Today, while you're sitting on your White muffin,* hundreds of White people are being subjecting to senseless black violence -- provoked, no doubt, by White Privilege rhetoric.

*Assuming you're not a poser.

HOW 13% of America can cause so much grief through random violence and uncivil behavior and not have the deserved backlash is beyond me.

Look at the atrocity the other day a the National Zoo...during African American Family day...should be renamed "Blacks Act Like Bigger Animals at the Zoo Day"

fucking niggers PISSED all over this event...(just goes to show pissing on FUBU events is the ploy of ghetto feral animals)

a bunch of wilding niggers...attacking and stabbing a person (still am curious who the stabee is...white or black)

ALSO all of which was "organized" on 365BLACKTWITTER.

wake up whities...the niggers are organizing themselves...to spread grief and fear and their idea of "socializing a la nigger"

NOT to find a job or a way to make an honest living, or bring valuable events or programs through their "group" after being organized "a la nigger".

NO they instead organize to spread fear and pain by attacking people in traditionally fun places to visit in public as a family.

Fast food restaurants, zoos, malls, schools, fairs/carnivals...etc

Whites just don't do that type of tribal organizing and attacks, they just don't.

THAT is the reason that more and more whites are correct in assuming that all the black people in America are just niggers...plain and simple...

Bigger shame that the few non nigger blacks, when they speak out againstthe niggers are Uncle Toms.

So in the black world you are

a FUCKING NIGGER, or a

UNCLE TOM


SUPER plain and simple...nothing in between...

Whites see it, and we are calling it out....

N O T H I N G will ever change because there are more niggers than Uncle Toms, and all the white people who play "WIGGER"...can't change what we "CAN SEE"!

I remember reading Black Like Me,but truthfully,it was so long ago that I can no longer remember much of anything about it,other than that it was supposed to be a True Account of Something That Really Happened. I can't recall any details.

Could the whole thing have been a hoax of some sort?

I think that it could have been a hoax,and given that the book is probably still in print,and is quite possibly used as classroom material in high school and what passes for college level curricula,I think that possibility needs to be looked at very carefully.

If I have my figures right,this book came out in the early 1960's. A very long time before internet access made semi-serious research possible for everyone with a dialup or DSL connection and 30 minutes to do some searching.

If it was a hoax,and if the author had the backing of a reputable publishing company,it wouldn't have taken much work,and if the book was all first person storytelling,who the hell would ever be able to find out that the events related were largely fictional?

Probably the easiest thing to do would be to skim the book and look for hard numbers. To wit,look for verifiable facts,or verifiable recorded events where the date of the event can be accurately shown,and then start looking at the account of the author and see if any obvious discrepancies appear.

Who knows? There might just be some of those obvious discrepancies.

When I was a kid my mom sent me to the store to buy milk. I went to the corner store and found what I was looking for: milk.

John Howard Griffin went on a mission to find White racism. He went to the South and found what he was looking for: White racism.

The fact that he had to "go looking" for it proves it is not prevalent.

Conclusion: We tend to find what we're looking for.

Re: Desiree
http://desireespeakssolisten.blogspot.com/p/100-things-about-me.html

"Desiree" encapsulates everything that is screwed up in black culture. The disconnect between ability and results is stunning. Absolutely stunning.

Ergo,
24. I am a Microbiology major, although I wonder if I should have been pre-med. Hmmm...

Continuing, she admits biology is hard, chemistry is hard, she sucks at math ... but "wonders if she should have been pre-med?" lol.

Instead, she settles on the safe black fall back position: "sociology" -- lol.

However, Desiree really gets to the heart of the matter with which truly plagues Black America:

"54. I don't think it is fair that Women of Color are compared to something we can never compete with.

55. I wish for one year black women would be seen as the be-all, end-all of what is beautiful."

Nothing infuriates blacks and mulattos more than to be faced with knowledge that they are rejected by whites.

Now that more whites are rejecting the corporate media and public schools,the opportunities to indoctrinate whites that they should be guilty for the state of black America is diminishing, and blacks are in a full blown panic over it.

Learn some history and stop watching MTV.

The main reason was so whites could avoid the rapes, robberies, assaults and murders that blacks tried even back then. Of course, we fought back in those times so black racism was more in check.

Hopefully, we will fight back again some day (like the Mexicans do to blacks).

There is no such thing as a white hate stare, thought there should be given the destruction and racism caused by blacks. Racial attacks are almost always black-on-non-black (of course, the brave blacks attack in packs or against women, kids or old people).

Those Who Can See said...

I burst out laughing as I started reading your post, Paul, being reminded at once where I myself first encountered the book: in a political science course in a French university. Ah yes, the Europeans lap this stuff up. (Amusing to see them at last contending with their own self-inflicted NAM race war, but I digress.)

Your conclusion intrigued me though. At the time I read it I was still a blank-slatist lefty, and even then it struck a false note. Negroid features are different from European ones, thought I in the French university classroom. No one would believe he was African. Also, it was drugs or some such he took to turn him dark-skinned, no? Sounded fishy to me, though I never made the mental leap to 'all-out hoax.'

In any case, the greater point is that bringing millions of Africans to the U.S. was a colossal mistake. As free men, they are forced to compete in a society that has no use for them. To quote a wise American addressing a black audience,

"I think your race suffer very greatly, many of them living among us, while ours suffer from your presence. In a word we suffer on each side. If this is admitted, it affords a reason at least why we should be separated."

This wise American wanted to graciously offer them a free one-way trip back to Africa after the Civil War, but alas, he did not live long enough to attempt it.

The media's portrayal of black crime affects white perceptions of blacks. Look at the O. J. Simpson case in comparison with the Rodney King trial. note that one verdict outraged whites when a black man was acquitted but not as much when two white policemen were acquitted. though whites believed the policemen to be guilty, their acquittal did not garner the same outrage. examine the criminal behavior of whites as portrayed by the media. Why is there no reference to "white crime" or "white on white" crime? In both instances the media's shaping of crimes either specific or general contributes to the white response and backlash.

"55. I wish for one year black women would be seen as the be-all, end-all of what is beautiful."

In this fantasy year, do you expect White women, from around the globe, to wear horse hair-extensions; not shave their underarms or legs; speak in Ebonics; change their diets to pickled pigs feet, salt-n-vinegar chips and McDonald's?

The European woman [is] the end-all-be-all of Beauty. She is the standard by which all things beautiful are judged - from antiquity, to modernity.

It's just one more reason for the African masses to despise all things White and beautiful.

African men and women trying to emulate Europeans is an epidemic in the black global community. Everything the African does is an attempt to be equal with the White mind and body, which is the antithesis to his own.

It is anti-nature which is to say: his attempts will continue to fail.

Africans should never aspire to White beauty or achievement. They should find some remnant of achievement and beauty within their own kith and kin.

I second Those Who Can See. Years ago, Thomas Fleming of Chronicles Magazine called the book a fake, saying that no White could pass for Black simply by darkening his skin. John Howard Griffin could never have fooled Southern Whites or Blacks, but he sure fooled his publishers and readers.

Snape, I have always thought you an ass, but this is shallow thinking. Why should we not protect ourselves when Africans Culture daily celebrate and extol the shooting, raping, home invasion, murder and mutilation of Whites. Here are samples of african RAP lyrics on point:

“Niggas in the church say: kill whitey all night long ... the white man is the devil ... the CRIPS and Bloods are soldiers I’m recruiting with no dispute; drive-by shooting on this white genetic mutant ... let’s go and kill some rednecks ... Menace Clan ain’t afraid ... I got the .380; the homies think I’m crazy because I shot a white baby; I said; I said; I said: kill whitey all night long ... a nigga dumping on your white ass; fuck this rap shit, nigga, I’m gonna blast ... I beat a white boy to the motherfucking ground”;

“Kill Whitey”; Menace Clan, Da Hood, 1995

“Devils fear this brand new shit ... I bleed them next time I see them ... I pray on these devils ... look what it has come to; who you gonna run to when we get to mobbing ... filling his body up with lead, yah; cracker in my way; slitting, slit his throat; watch his body shake; watch his body shake; that’s how we do it in the motherfucking [San Francisco] Bay ... sitting on the dock of the dirty with my AK”;

“Heat — featuring Jet and Spice 1”; Paris, Unleashed, 1998, Unleashed Records, Whirling Records.

“These devils make me sick; I love to fill them full of holes; kill them all in the daytime, broad motherfucking daylight; 12 o’clock, grab the Glock; why wait for night”

This is just a tiny sample of the hundreds of examples I have on file. Imagine just for a moment that the colors are reversed in this collection, that these are songs by whites talking about blacks! Given this "culture", why should Whites not understand that they are being targeted and hated by every aspect of african "culture". I am so sorry that this poor ladies Stare has made you uncomfortable, perhaps you can raise the volume of your music talking about murdering Whites to counter it.

The white folks were probably giving Griffin the "hate stare" because he was walking around with shoe polish on his skin. They probably though he was a lunatic or mocking black people. Does anyone seriously believe that a white person could simply put some dark cream on their face and pass for black? How about a black person bleaching their skin and passing for white? There are obvious differences between the facial features and hair. There might be a few mulattoes that could pass for white, but they're probably 75% or more white. The whole book is a farce. Just look at the picture of the man on the cover? He looks like a white guy who just walked out of a coal mine.

"...that level of empathy for blacks is hard to accomplish when white privilege has been the norm for all of us; even the white liberal has a limited consciousness. "

Snape, you don't get it at all. Your willing ignorance is shameful. So you think whites should be MORE empathetic to blacks?? Let me get this straight. Hard working white taxpayers already pay for the majority of blacks to eat, breed and live.

For the blacks, we pay for rent, utilities, cell phones, education, childbirth, medications, excessive 911 and emergency service, medical care, clothing, meals at school, baby formula and diapers, daycare, Head Start, "affordable housing", vouchers of all kinds, AA programs, mortgage meltdowns, disability, insurance, heat and air conditioning, jobs training, prison maintenance, free scholarships, and the list truly NEVER ENDS. Whites are no longer able to safely ride the transit systems that WE BUILT AND PAID FOR, use public schools THAT WE BUILT AND PAY FOR, or live where we want (no normal person wants to live in a black cesspool ghetto...).

This group STILL fails miserably. Nothing works. You empathy is hurting your own people and you have the nerve to lecture us on empathy????

Now that forced charity promoted the growth of a people who have now risen to probably 34% of the population, most are on the dole, most are violent and lost with criminal records, most are uneducated by choice, have no credit, no savings, no prospects, no marriages or families, and most are terrorizing American citizens and hating our guts, we should be more EMPATHETIC?

Fuck you.

No, whites believed the cops were innocent, and that Rodney King DID resist arrest (unlike his two co-horts, who did NOT resist, and were NOT beaten).

Get your facts straight, dipshit.

I read that book (don't remember if it was for school, or given to me by a friend) back in 7th or 8th grade. Even then, as a hard-core liberal, I was skeptical that such a convincing transformation was possible.

White Devil, while the oft-used quote by Lincoln is a solid one, I recently read an even more interesting one from Thomas Jefferson. I can't remember or find the website at the moment, but I found the passages in question elsewhere: http://www.historytools.org/sources/Jefferson-Race.pdf

It's rather long, but provides a far more detailed and realistic look at racial differences, those of the body and the mind.

SBPDL: Had you noticed that in the last week, the ThugReport had disappeared? So did another race realist site, Nation of Cowards. Both have simply vanished. Methinks that with Trump and the birth certificate question so public, plus the videos of black female violence going viral, the internet powers-that-be are getting rather nervous.

You cannot assume a black will misbehave without looking like a racist fool.

Snape,I'll recycle an argument that I've used before on this site.

I will be happy to stop my stereotyping based on demographic factors the day after insurance companies stop doing the same thing. My collision insurance rates dropped by almost a thousand dollars a year the day I turned 25. Because insurance companies know damned good and well that the risk of collision for drivers drops after that age. And they have the data to back up that assertion.

The same techniques can be used to make quick and dirty guesses regarding the possible personal threat level of various individuals with whom anyone has to conduct affairs.

Again-recycling an argument-I don't have to know every historical detail about an individual rattlesnake to know that picking up a rattlesnake is a bad idea.

With a skyrocketing obesity rate and the propensity for having multiple out-of-wedlock children, it is not difficult to understand why black women are considered less-desirable.

though whites believed the policemen to be guilty, their acquittal did not garner the same outrage.

To be guilty of what? Surely you are not holding up Rodney King as some sort of innocent?

Thanks to advances in micro technology we no longer need a White to black face himself on a mission to sniff out the subtle racism.

We can "wire up" a dozen black volunteers with hidden video cameras and send them about their daily routines.

Any volunteers? Uh, Desiree? Do I see your hand raised?

"Sins of our forefathers". Snape-ape, you don't know whom my forefathers were. Yes, Lithuanian and Italian immigrants, that's whom. I think, as a (false)guilt-ridden "white" apologist, that you really meant all American caucasions are guilty for being of the same race as past enslavers. News flash: ALL races have been, and still are enslaved upon the globe. You tar a wide swath with your neurotic guiltiness brush my deluded "friend".
As to your invalid(find some black on white assault stats, it's easy!) claims that whites aren't targeted by inherently violent black youth, I can only surmise that you are spoon-fed your pap("info") via Mainstream Media, unto satiated blissful ignorance. I suggest you find a computer that works and observe the wild beast that roams among us.
I have lived and worked among "the blacks" for almost half a century and can honestly say that but for an anomalous handful, the behavior exhibited can only be described as childlike. I.E.: instant gratification, barely controlled emotional state, a very materialistic mode of operation (Bling-Bling!), and a supreme selfishness, even to the point of putting their own desires ahead of their childs. Not very high on Maslows hierarchy to be sure.
RE: hate stare. You remind me of an ostrich with their head buried in the sand. I've had "hate stares" and actual threats from any number of blacks for over forty years, for being WHITE. That's called racism, ya think? Where do you live, Saskatoon?

Anonymous said...

I've had almost exclusively postive experiences with blacks, both friends and aquaintances. But, that doesn't nullify statistical reality.

My observations of monkey-like behavior of black strangers in the streets aren't offset because of my positive experiences. Since I understand a little something about statistics, I expect to find intelligent and decent blacks as well as a (much larger) cohort of dumb, degenerate blacks. I take the good WITHOUT ignoring (and thereby AVOIDING) the bad.

Even dumb whites seem to be generally less violent than dumb blacks, as well as making up a smaller proportion of the white population.

Bottom line: blacks, as a race, are different, maybe not to-a-man, but on the whole.

Re: "Black Like Me"

Interestingly, another book from the same time period, with similar politics, has just been shown to've been hoaxed: John Steinbeck's Travels With Charlie.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1375706/Loaded-creative-fictions-Author-claims-John-Steinbeck-invented-road-trip-classic-Travels-With-Charley.html

The book, purported to be non-fiction, was similarly a big hit, and demonized traditional American culture in the same way. Recently, a contemporary scholar retraced Steinbeck's itinerary, and discovered much of the book's narrative had to've been invented. Now people are remarking about how unbelievable the supposedly "real" characters are in the book -- how in retrospect they seem like cliches designed to promote Steinbeck's political agenda. But everyone believed it at the time, probably because it verified their Snapeish perspectives. Some of the now apparently invented characters included noble civil rights activists and evil white Southerners.

It seems like this time period -- the early 60s -- was when DWL culture really began to predominate in American society. There's probably lots of other examples from this period to look at.

I remember watching a few minutes of the "Black Like Me" film on TCM years ago and thinking, politics aside, it was ridiculous that anyone would think this guy was black simply because his skin was darkened. It looked like Spencer Tracy with a tan.

The Engineer said...

Mrs. Sheila,

I tried to access the Thug Report and was told that no such site exists. I've never heard of the other one you mentioned, but I used to frequent a site called "n*****mania" and those guys were hit with DOS hack attacks once or twice a year. The owner would have to reboot and start the site from scratch. It pissed me off because some of my most brilliant racist commentary was deleted. Now I copy and paste all of my wit and wisdom to an external hard drive before I post.

SBPDL: You guys should probably back up your systems (if you haven't already) because DOS attacks will only increase as the NPOTUS campaigns for re-election.

Dissident said...

To 10mm:

Reading that $hit makes my blood boil! And you are soooooooo right about the outrage and the gnashing of teeth, and the ferocious $hit storm that would come down on ANY white person that wrote or sang such horrendous filth.

These record company executives should be strung up for allowing such vitriol to ever see the light of day.

I wonder how many senseless and brutal deaths have occurred due to blacks acting out their impulses, because their favorite rappers are performing such mind-numbing filth?

@AV 7:39: You said "How 13% of America can cause so much grief through random violence and uncivil behavior and not have the deserved backlash is beyond me." Well said. Well said.

map said...

I think Professor Snape and other critics of SBPDL fail to understand the basic problem with their criticism.

The purpose of SBPDL is to minutely document the low-grade intifada that black people are committing against white people. That documentation comes in two forms: the first form is statistical...based on things like the FBI Crime Victimization Survey. This establishes the intifada at the high level. The second form is the youtube post. This provides the ground-level audio/visual documentation of that same black-driven, anti-white intifada.

Against the statistical and audio/video driven evidence that SBPDL provides, what do Snape and Desiree offer to counter? Nothing but their personal anecdotes. Snape will talk about his "positive experiences" or invoke literature from nineteen-dickety-do. Desiree will go on and on about institutional racism. But, why should they expect anyone on this blog to believe them over the evidence we see in color with our own two eyes? Or, evidence produced by institutions that their people already control?

In other words, Snape, why should any of us believe you?

See, this is the problem. You seem to be making the mistake that you somehow bear the burden of proof to show Professor Snape that you are right. You do not need to do this. It is Snape who bears the burden of proof to show that the concerns of those frequenting this site are wrong and to demonstrate with his own proof why we are wrong. Snape refuses to do that...because he cannot. All he can do is invoke the history as written by DWL's; resort to shaming language; or use anecdotes no one can verify.

Again, we are back to the same problem. Eminem's experiences are completely unverifiable. In fact, he probably has a vested interest in making up these kind of stories because it gives him street cred. For all any of us know, his father could have been a GM executive or something.

I pray for a return to Jim Crow. I think the white elders had the right idea: just look at black society now and society as a whole in the wake of it being abolished. Blacks are destructive by nature, and it shows.

There are bad apples in any bunch, but blacks have a disproportionate amount of bad apples. Disagree? Again, just check out the federal crime statistics easily accessed via Google. It aint' no lie!

So are most black people's stories about how they are discriminated against by white people. If you're going to give the black chappies with the sideways caps and chains the benefit of the doubt when they talk to DWLs on Behind the Music, then why not give the one white "artist" the same benefit of the doubt as well?

Of course, given the lopsided abuse whites take from blacks, I find Eminem's story much more likely than any blacks claiming to face "hate" from whitey these days.

'map said', your posts are not only intelligent and well written, they cut through the obfuscation that progressives deliberately serve up, and get to the heart of the issues. Thank you.

Essentially the game that Snape and Desiree continually play can be reduced to the following question: "Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?"

Anonymous said...

You miss my point, map. Eminem's anecdote actually sinks up with the reality of black crime and pathology against whites as reflected in (government) statistics and on sites like this one and The Thug Report. There is no White Thug Report. Because white thuggery is not an epidemic the way black thuggery is. Most black people's alleged victimhood at the hands of "white devils" does not match up to any sort of reality. About five thousand blacks were allegedly hanged in the U.S. up until the 'civil rights' era. More whites are victimized by black thuggery (read: raped or murdered or both) in a single year and have been for the last fifty years.

Fascinating link, Sheila, thank you for sharing it.

For those of us raised on a diet of late 20th-century PC, it is a shock to hear the plain speaking of our forebears.

But Jefferson's sentiments were common in his time, and were echoed later, after the Civil War and in the early 1900s, by even black writers such as W.E.B. DuBois or Thomas Nelson Page.

Scary how simple observations of group behavior or character have become, in our time, heinous 'thought crimes.'

"See, this is the problem. You seem to be making the mistake that you somehow bear the burden of proof to show Professor Snape that you are right."

You are quite correct there is no point in debating people like Snape in the normal sense of the word. However you can use the points people like him make as a peg on which to hang your own points aimed at the other people reading e.g

- association of violent crime with lower IQ
combined with ethnic differences in IQ distribution
- ethnic differences in levels of empathy / psychopathy
- media incitement to black vs white violence through promoting black revenge entitlement
- media censorship of black vs white crime combined with anti-white guilt-tripping creating white victims through bullying them into dangerous and self-harming behaviour to prove they're not racist


I just used your comment to do it again :)

You are right in your general point. DWLs like Snape aren't interested in the truth so if you try and debate them in the usual way you'll just end up angry and frustrated which makes you *sound* angry and frustrated which undermines your point.

Don't debate. Make a point.

If this country was so bad, why did so few blacks seek a better quality of life somewhere else? The emigration to Liberia was a tiny fraction, even fewer after the Civil War, and Marcus Garvey got practically no one to go.

It seemed to me that far more blacks came to this country than left it. Why is that?

How'd you expect us to leave? We were broke... We couldn't have left because of so many segregation laws. If it was hard ride a bus how'd you expect to take a boat? Plus, we already had been settled down into the life here it'd be pretty hard to just pick up & leave.
I think this is not a really good webpage really I stumbled upon it trying to search for something for a black like me book report for my school. it doesn't have really good points or info for anything in the world b/c how could any white man know what it is like for a black man or woman to never be one?
