Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) Comes to America: Congress Mandates Diversity at Comcast


PK Note: A deluge from the skies postponed the Daytona 500 until tomorrow. Head over to Vdare.com to read yet another Paul Kersey article, this one on the quest to diversify NASCAR into an acceptable, multi-racial sport. Act of Valor was the number one movie in America, by the way. Expect a big week. 

I HAD (I Have a Dream) people are noticeably quiet right now. They keep citing the true “Father of America” – sorry, it’s no longer George Washington – Martin Luther King, and appear shocked that Mein Obama himself would target Black people with his African-Americans for Obama campaign.

Matt Drudge, who considers Alex Jones’ Prison Planet a legitimate source of news, has linked to an article that decries and bemoans Mein Obama’s explicitly targeting the Black vote as a betrayal of what Saint Martin Luther King wanted.

Actually, it’s exactly what MLK would have wanted. It’s only I HAD people who cling to some illusion that MLK was some color-blind savoir. But no example of the kind of policy MLK would have favored can be found that is greater than what Comcast announced this past week. We talked about this last year, when it became obvious that Comcast – and all of Corporate America – was fully invested in Black-Run America (BRA).

Here’s what Adweek reported:
Comcast is making good on its promise to beef up minority involvement in its cable division, though it's doing so with digital networks instead of terrestrial cable channels. It's not quite what it sounded like when, as a condition of its purchase of a majority stake in NBCUniversal (then 80 percent held by GE), Comcast agreed to create cable networks with minority leadership. Still, a channel is a channel. 
The company is launching four new digital nets with headliners including Magic Johnson, Sean "Diddy" Combs and film director Robert Rodriguez, starting as soon as April. The four networks will be available on Comcast's digital basic tier, but they won't be taking the place of any existing cable channels. Instead, they'll be digital subnets, a growing sector of the cable market that is mostly occupied by public access-style programming at this point. 
Johnson, whose title will be chairman, will lead Aspire, a new network with an African-American focus and inspirational programming. In a statement issued Tuesday, David Jensen, Comcast's vp of content acquistion, said that the Atlanta-based network (a partnership with GMC TV) will involve "an enduring focus on delivering quality programming that positively resonates with ethnically diverse communities." 
Combs' network, Revolt, will also have an African-American focus when it debuts next year but will be more of a music and news network. Revolt will be heavily engaged with social media and already has aspirations beyond Comcast's subscriber base. In a release issued by the new network this morning, Combs said that his hope was "that this new network will spark a revolution in entertainment and encourage other media and communications companies to bring Revolt to their audiences.” 
Rodriguez's network, El Rey, will focus on the Latino audience, with content created by the net's new production company, Tres Pistoleros, which will develop programming for the channel. Rodriguez's background as a director of films including Sin City and Planet Terror is mirrored in his vision for the channel: "The majority of the players today are doing a fantastic job serving the first generation [of Latinos in America]," Rodriguez told Deadline, "and what we want to do is serve their offspring.” The start date for El Rey is some time in 2014.
 Wait a second. Does this mean what we think it means? Has a South African form of Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) come to America? Yes. Quickly, let’s allow the South African government to tell us what the BEE program is:

South Africa's policy of black economic empowerment (BEE) is not simply a moral initiative to redress the wrongs of the past. It is a pragmatic growth strategy that aims to realise the country's full economic potential while helping to bring the black majority into the economic mainstream.
Through its BEE policy, the government aims to achieve the following objectives:
  • Empower more black people to own and manage enterprises. Enterprises are regarded as black-owned if 51% of the enterprise is owned by black people, and black people have substantial management control of the business.
  • Achieve a substantial change in the racial composition of ownership and management structures and in the skilled occupations of existing and new enterprises.
  • Promote access to finance for black economic empowerment.
  • Empower rural and local communities by enabling their access to economic activities, land, infrastructure, ownership and skills.
  • Promote human resource development of black people through, for example, mentorships, learnerships and internships.
  • Increase the extent to which communities, workers, co-operatives and other collective enterprises own and manage existing and new enterprises, and increase their access to economic activities, infrastructure and skills.
  • Ensure that black-owned enterprises benefit from the government's preferential procurement policies.
  • Assist in the development of the operational and financial capacity of BEE enterprises, especially small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) and black-owned enterprises.
  • Increase the extent to which black women own and manage existing and new enterprises, and facilitate their access to economic activities, infrastructure and skills training.

Yikes. Isn’t this exactly what these networks basically represent, a form of BEE in America? Let’s take a look at another article celebrating this state-mandated minority ownership (Congress Compels Comcast to give Earvin “Magic” Johnson his own network, by Patrick Howley, Washington Free Beacon, February 22, 2012):

National Basketball Association legend and prominent Democratic donor Earvin “Magic” Johnson is set to launch a new network that will be carried on Comcast Corp. cable after pressure from Democratic politicians to “diversify” cable lineups.
Johnson’s Aspire network will launch on June 30, according to the Los Angeles Times. It is the first of 10 new networks—the majority of which are owned by African-American and Latino businessmen—that Comcast will launch by 2018, per its agreement with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Department of Justice to “diversify the cable landscape.”

The commitment to the new networks came in 2010 as a result of pressure placed on NBCUniversal by Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) during the company’s $14 billion merger with Comcast.
In February 2010, Waters asked then-NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Zucker, “Is there some assumption that black programming is not profitable?” Waters offered to help arrange meetings for Zucker with African-American producers. Waters also alleged in a hearing that a Comcast representative had called her with the implicit offer of a payoffin exchange for her support—an accusation that Comcast denied.

Johnson made a proposal for one of the cable networks immediately after learning that Comcast was taking submissions. “We wanted to be the first one,” Johnson said to the Times.
Given the political nature of the network’s creation, Johnson was in a prime position to realize that goal. Johnson has donated more than $80,000 to Democratic candidates, committees and PACs since 2007, including $51,200 to the Democratic National Committee and $11,900 to President Obama, according to a database maintained by the Center for Responsive Politics.
Aspire will be led in partnership between Johnson and the family-oriented GMC TV. The financial terms of the agreement between Johnson’s group and Comcast were not disclosed.
Waters’ crusade to insert diversity-based programming into the terms of the merger gained enough publicity to warrant a parody of the congresswoman during the 2010 season of the NBC sitcom “30 Rock.” Even after the FCC released its 279-page review and approval of the merger in January 2011, which included Waters’ diversity-programming mandate, the California congresswoman was not satisfied.

Waters said, “I do not believe the American public can have much confidence in Comcast-NBCU’s commitment to launch 10 new independent channels when current networks have had so many challenges negotiating reasonable carriage terms with the cable giant.”
Why are conservatives silent on this too?

Well, except Alex Jones that is. Doesn’t that tell you something. Matt Drudge understands news. This is why he’s giving so much space to stories that denote Black pathologies, such as their love for rioting over Nike shoes. Were another conservative site to cover this story (or a politician), Drudge would give them publicity via The Drudge Report.

But they remain silent. They remain silent as Eric “My People” Holder wages a war against the historic majority population of the United States, with this Department of (IN) Justice suing South Carolina for passing a voter identification law; suing Arizona, South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama for passing immigration laws because of the failure of the federal government to enforce the laws on the books.

Worse, Christian Adams documented the egregious levels of anti-white hatred found in the halls of Holder’s DOJ, though it was there before Mein Obama was elected. And few people even mention this now, save a conspiracy run by a guy named Alex Jones who actually believes our government and the New World Order wants to decimate the world's population, when every action of the UN and the USA is to bolster and strengthen the populations of Africa and other third world hellholes.  

Ladies and gentleman, the nightmare of BRA cannot end until someone publically takes on Obama and Holder. Until then, you’ll see Atlas Shrugged-style BEE laws mandated by Congress to economically level the playing field for Black people and other minorities. That person will become a star overnight, with millions of people rallying behind them and their rhetoric. 

Folks, Freedom has failed. We are now entering an era where Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) is officially-sanctioned – mandated even – by the federal government. Funny, we've already seen what a version of BEE does to a major city like Detroit, where the Visible Black Hand of Economics turned one of the world's great cities into the "Mogadishu of the West" in only two decades from assuming power in 1973. 

To illustrate the pervasive power of BRA and how corporate America has been basically helping maneuver the concept of BEE into our nation, we must look no farther than the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). It’s been an abysmal failure, with horrible ratings.

But before it had even broadcast its first show, corporate America did something unprecedented:
The Oprah Winfrey Network, the 50/50 joint venture between Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Inc. and Discovery Communications, announced last week it had secured a significant commitment from Procter & Gamble, the world's largest advertiser. P&G, the manufacturer of dozens of household name brands like Tide, Crest, Tampax and Pampers, committed to a deal reportedly worth more than $100 million over three years. The agreement, which includes the purchase of time and integration into programming, is unprecedented in that Winfrey's network (OWN for short) will not be on the air until January 2011, does not yet have a full programming lineup and has no audience and therefore no basis for ratings, reach or demographics.

It is a sad state of affairs that the only conservative outlet – it’s only nominally – bringing up many of the racial onslaughts by Obama and his cohorts is Alex Jones.

This isn’t a conspiracy folks. BRA is real. BEE coming to America is real. It’s being mandated by Congress.

And the silence of conservatives is… to be expected.

 I have a dream that this all ends. Only conservative white people believe in a color-blind society, and actually try and practice the false rhetoric of MLK, a man who represents the greatest fraud in world history.

The day someone publicly steps up and says, "You know, they're just not worth it" is the day everything changes forever. When some credible voice on the right acknowledges that fact, there won't be any stopping what happens after that. We'll see that day, it may come this year, it will come before this decade is out.

This might be a positive.

Considering the nonexistence of black purchasing power, (don't black women have an average net worth of $5.00?) Comcast will never even recoup the production costs of these channels via advertising. There's no way they will ever turn a profit.

So, Comcast will have to raise rates on paid services to compensate. As a result, maybe more people will stop paying to pump enemy agitprop right into their living rooms.

Scandinavian countries bend over and lube up rather than fight a politically incorrect war against "minorities" that commit atrocious evils in their midst.

And the crowning jewel, America, continues to play fiddle while Detroit crumbles. With the same failed, black-racism and black-favoritism first, judgment NEVER policies.... coming soon to a city, to a state, near you.

Hey PK I noticed in an earlier article that you mentioned Alex Jones and now you have mentioned him again. I feel obligated to inform you and everyone here at SBPDL that Alex Jones IS NOT OUR FRIEND. Alex Jones is what we would call "controlled opposition." He makes semi-factual statements that resonate with people like me and you and then he uses that "legitimacy" to lead people to false conclusions. He purports to be THE champion of alternative news and "truthers" but in reality he is nothing but a shill for the elite, dressed up to look like "one of us." TRUST ME this guy is POISON! In the interest of maintaining the INTEGRITY of this site I beg you PLEASE do not mention Alex Jones as a legitimate source of news. The fact that Drudge is linking to him gives me great pause. Believe me I use to frequent Prison Planet and Infowars all the time. I cannot stress enough how bad people like Alex Jones are for the alternative media. He is a loudmouthed blowhard that makes everyone in the alternative media look like ranting lunatics. I mean he makes RIDICULOUS ASSERTIONS such as:

Alex Jones Says ARABS Control Hollywood and WORLD STOCK MARKETS!

Just listen to this short video of the Alex Jones Radio Show where he claims that Arabs (the Saudis in particular) control Hollywood AND ALL of the World's Stock Markets. I'm telling you PK, this Alex Jones guy is pure garbage.

GOOD CALL ON ZERO HEDGE though.....

It's not pretty, but this is the way it has to be. And never allow yourself to be decieved. If a man will not decry blacks here, on this semi anonymous medium, he will never do it in real life.

Eliminate the middle. Make them choose one side all the way. White nationalism or multiculturalism. Don't allow the liberal model, where they can side with the blacks but live with the whites.

Whiskey said...

It will end. Soon. Black audiences are not profitable, BET already has all of them, and there are not enough like say, White women, to sustain a bunch of channels aimed at them. Any more than gays meet that criteria (profitable programming).

Oprah had the #1 talk show in America for decades. It made her a billionaire. But that's just an hour -- she did not have enough to offer White women "an imaginary Black Best Friend" for the other 23 hours of the day, every day.

It was Blackmail, plain and simple, and it will end soon as advertisers cut spending/rates on TV. Comcast bought NBCU just to get content, since they are losing money on cable, and hope to gain in business services and content. Univison and Telemundo are mildly profitable, but there's not enough MONEY amongst Latinos to make another network viable.

I would not say Freedom has failed, rather pretending you can turn back the tide with an Army has failed. A lesson Canute tried to teach. That's the point of the story. Magic Johnson wants to run a Black network, more power to him. Let him do it without special deals arranged by his crony Maxine Waters. Tyler Perry didn't get Maxine Waters to hook him up with deals. He's not my taste but he's a self-made man and I admire that.

And you are 100% CORRECT PK that a lack of honesty is what ails us. It is a shame that Jones is the only one talking about it, and yes Drudge knows what gets hits. And its not namby-pamby PC platitudes.

Now, a question: how many with Comcast cable will give it up? And tell the subscription department why?

Just what we need: more forced-to-buy-but-never-watched black tv cable shows like BET (which research has proven blacks themselves do not watch).

The power of BRA is amazing; advertisers know very well that blacks make up only 13% of the population and of that small percentage the buying power is the lowest of the low. But I guess it would make sense for makers of diapers, junk food, and grape drink to advertise to the black breeders.

As a rather new reader of SBPDL I do not know if it has been mentioned yet about how White the most successful tv shows have been. The Andy Griffith Show, Happy Days, MASH, Cheers, Friends, Seinfield, Modern Family, etc. are all White based shows. Can anyone cite an iconic tv show with one or more black main character?

Have you ever tried watching a Tyler Perry tv show? I have. The humor was simply not there. Whites and blacks do not have the same sensibilities because we do not have the same intellect.

And we do not have the same buying power. Advertisers know this. But they are cowards even if it means sacrificing the bottom line. Such is the evidence of how Amerika is indeed BRA.

Don't expect any help from conservatives. They are only concerned with conserving their cushy, materialistic existence. Their highest social directive is to be nice, not to be right or just. They always give in to liberalism eventually. At least with those who are openly liberal, you know what you are gonna get.

Conservatives will not truly wake up or even speak up until they are deprived of their government checks and their 100 sports channels, and most of them will not do anything even then. Nice people but they are not leaders. Jesus called them sheep for a reason.

"I feel obligated to inform you and everyone here at SBPDL that Alex Jones IS NOT OUR FRIEND."

Of course no one is ever 100% right but Jones does a better job at reporting the news these days than most. I cut him a lot of slack. He's discovered over the last decade that the real news is more alarming than his old made-up UFO schtick. But it is really weird that guys like Rense, Jones, Ickes, et al. are more reliable journalists than all of the MSM combined, their eccentricities notwithstanding.

You forgot The Jeffersons, Miami Vice and many others. Shows today like House, which has a major black character, exist as well. I have no problem watching shows with black people that are entertaining - as all of those shows were (to me, anyway). If Magic Johnson can make a success of it like the creator of Soul Train did, more power to him. But if he doesn't get viewers and advertisers, he damn well better not look for subsidies. He already failed with his talk show The Magic Hour back in the day, so I have my doubts.

I would gladly rather see 10 new black networks as long as there could be one real white one. A white controlled TV network aimed purely at the interests of and for the benefit of white America / world would be an absolute game changer. Most of what will get produced by these black networks can already get into the mainstream media. In fact, that is the mainstream media narrative. But they types of things that interest the alt-right are explicitly banished. The funny thing is that I believe the left would rather sacrifice 10 networks then let us have one.

South Africa's policy of black economic empowerment (BEE) is not simply a moral initiative to redress the wrongs of the past.

Except that there was nothing "wrong" with apartheid. Under apartheid, South Africa was a well developed, stable country. Under black-majority-rule, it is degenerating into another African basket case.

Consider what would have happened had the whites of SA abandoned apartheid in, say, 1960, the time that the Winds of Change were sweeping the continent. Supposing the vote had been handed out to the various warring ethnicities which composed the black sector; supposing a largely illiterate black substratum were given free access to universities; supposing blacks were allowed to flood the white built cities without the pass controls? What do you suppose would have happened.

Well, what happened in Congo? Or Uganda? Or Rwanda? Or Nigeria-Biafra? Or Equatorial Guinea ("The Dogs of War" is set in a fictionalized version of this black-majority-rule country)?

What happened when you got rid of white rule in Africa?

That's right: a fiasco.

We can see the same process today in Rhodesia-Zimbabwe: remove white rule, replace it with African black-majority-rule, and you end up with a fiasco. The reality has been that black Africans have demonstrated themselves to be incapable of running a modern society: industry, infrastructure, human rights, civil order, all disintegrate under black-majority-rule.

Let us note that blacks in Africa have demonstrated themselves largely incapable of maintaining what white people built, much less developing into modern societies. It's really the old competition between civilization and barbarism, but this time around, the barbarians have the ideological cheering section in their corner.

Something to think about as the Second Dark Age closes in...

I recall not to long ago that cable companies were getting sued to change the way they do packages. The proposed plan was to have cable channels become a la cart so to say. You picked what you wanted rather than being shoved into a basic or premium package. BET among others sued to have this stopped because it was racist. They new no one would want to willingly pay for their crap channels.

Apple has got album promotions it cycles through and when you return to iTunes it'll have a new album featured.

Half the time, or more, there's a negro "artist" featured who is looking into the camera with that standard rap singer hate stare. It looks like he wants to stomp the audience down. This sells music?

This culture has gone insane.

A commonly expressed belief on this site and many others is that somehow there will be a counter-revolution that will defeat liberalism and its demands for hyper-equality. That such an uprising against the Left is inevitable, that it will be quick and decisive, to be followed by a long and glorious restoration.

I sympathize with these views but they are fantasy thoughts. There is every reason to believe that turning liberalism on its head will be a long slog. This is an inside-out process, not an external attack. Restoring an unapologetic white heterosexual Christian patriarchy over a liberal tyranny will take generations, not months.

Notions of bullet-ridden righteous conquest a la Hollywood are not only unappealing to many who might otherwise sympathize with alternative views on race or "equality". They are also identical to the progressive idea that self-determination and autonomy are the only precepts that individuals need to operate by. If liberals thus deny or downplay duty and responsibility then we must maintain the opposite position.

It is too simplistic to say "Once everything collapses we'll be in charge with all our guns and ammo and stored supplies". Doesn't that sound just a tad paranoid? And what if you prepared for that party your whole life and it never happened? Just a slow, inexorable degradation all around you that you had no political or civic solutions for.

There are many future possibilities as far as the Western social condition. It is always good to be prepared but internal hot warfare is not one of the more likely possibilities in the near term. There is too much to lose.

>> if all you need is e-mail, web, some video, VPN and no windows apps (office coming soon though) then this is a viable solution. It's $25 per month, works everywhere, and service can be turned on/off whith a phone call
4. Wireless EVDO cards (verizion, sprint, att, motorola) - these slide into a slot on your laptop and give you high-speed wireless Internet. Very nice and cost about $60 per month. It's high, but you don't have to deal with comcast, you can use it anyhwere, and it can be coupled with a router to enable house-hold sharing of the service (go to amazon, look for "evdo router")

We need to organize, and start working together. Like the Christian Coalition.

To turn the TV off:

use local air-waves (while they are still available) to watch NBC, CBS, etc (you get HD quality too).

I normally don't respond to anonymous trolls, but this stereotypical bit of hypersensitivity is worth some snark:

I am Scottish, Irish and English in almost equal measure and I resent the HATRED which oozes from your vile disparagement of the Scots-Irish.

Are you also a hillbilly whose family tree looks like a Pakistani clan, with generation after generation of first cousins producing inbred offspring?

I guess you must be, otherwise you wouldn't be taking offense.  In that case, I congratulate you on your success in the face of such odds.  On the other hand, the statistics for that population in e.g. W. Virginia are pretty bleak.

My ancestry comes from both of the two groups who did the heavy lifting in the two little dust-ups in Europe last century (different social classes and emigrated the century before, though we kicked butt here too).  You should watch out.

And I do have to congratulate Rusty Mason for this:

Got something under my kilt you and your kind, sir.

How stereotypically ghetto of you, showing how far our norms have fallen.  Well done.  I think.

And that segues into the idea of a White network.  Imagine a network where "diversity" is not just ignored, but kept out.  Where you didn't see White people being portrayed as buffoon sidekicks to the NAM sages.  It would give DWLs fits.

I guess it goes to show that the only thing Hollywood likes more than black face, is classic, old school French Cinema that reminds us of our incredible past. That and STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS!

Mr. Rational is clearly overcome by his own love for negritude. The same old "incest" bullshit typical of "morally superior," ultra-PC Yankee types.

There are no genetic infirmities among Scots-Irish unlike, say the tribe that is afflicted by genetic mutations such as Tay-Sachs or the negroes with their sickle cell. So your inbreeding bullshit is just that.

The only truly "iconic" shows with "one or more" Black characters would be:

"I Spy" - (Bill Cosby)

Anonymous said...

Mr. Rational is likely of either English or German descent (secondary possibilities are French or Scandinavian), and is resurrecting 19th century racism which was directed almost as much toward the scotts-irish as it was blacks.

However, today that type of racism is misguided amongst whites, as we are in a do or die situation in the west. Slavic, Germanic, and Celtic whites are all fighting the same battle and there is no room for division at this point in time. The difference is too little compared to what we are up against.

I don't deny anyone's right to breed with who her or she wishes (ie: if Mr Rational cares to keep his stock English or German), but that is almost an impossibility in today's white society save for the uppermost class. Today's whites are lucky to find a cultured classy white woman of any background and they should take her when she comes.

The fact remains that whatever your opinions of middle lower and lower class white Americans, which is where I assume Mr. Rational sees the majority of Scott-irish stock, they largely (with very few exceptions that dwell in the poorest of regions) maintain peaceful and orderly communities on par with wealthier white communities - only less wealthy. The white values and behavior that this site extolls are there in spades. Therefore, Mr Rationals issue is primarily one of class and not race. Poor Scott-irish white communities do not compare in any way shape or form with those of blacks of almost any class.

Of course, problems such as alcoholism are rampant in poor white communities, but can often be squelched in the next generation should the family find more financial resources. Take this from me, a guy of half German and half Scott-irish descent who had an alcoholic (yet productive) father and grandfather (both dead in their early fifties) but who has transcended that trap himself and is moving his family up the class ladder as someone who drinks very little alcohol. I had the benefit of the resources that my father spent on me to send me to a very good school. The German brains in the large Scott-irish skull also helps;-)

Today the Scott-irish can be found at all levels of society, and are indistinguishable from other productive white Americans save for the fact that they may not have the polish of a middle or upper class upbringing should they have lifted themselves up by their own bootstraps.

There are poor urban white communities whose youth adopt some urban black culture; however, me being from a middle lower class neighborhood in a very large city - I can state without equivocation that the poor white neighborhoods do not in any way resemble the poor black neighborhoods of the same class. There is a large difference in neighborhood maintenance and behavior. For all of these reasons is Mr. Rational wrong in lumping the Scott-Irish in with blacks. Besides, someone is required to occupy the lowest rung in capitalist societies. I'd much rather it be a class of whites than anyone else, assuming we could jettison the others. Not that I think class discrimination among whites is prudent or even warranted at this point in western civilization. Although, I will admit that Irish-Americans tend to have annoying forms of low class Nationalist expression (the drinking and St. Paddy's Day culture being two examples). However, I can't hate any form of European nationalism at this point, no matter what it's form.

As for the article, all whites should refrain from watching movies with black protagonists, sports with black players, and programming that extolls value propositions or politics that are antithetical to the well being of our political group. Your decision to watch either financially reinforces this programming or it boycotts it. It must be boycotted.

Several posters have responded to my question of "Can anyone cite an iconic tv show with one or more black main character?" with Sanford and Son, The Jefferson"s, and The Cosby Show.

A fair explanation of what I mean by iconic is in order. What I mean is that what tv show not only influenced the zeitgeist during its time but also influenced the zeitgeist of future generations.

Having a memorable catch phrase is not the same as being iconic.

Sanford and Son had "you big dummy" and "I'm coming for you Elizabeth" and nothing more.

The Jefferson's had "Kid Dynamite" and nothing more.

And recall that these two shows were related to the tv networks anti-White All in the Family. All three shows were at the genesis of White Guilt.

And The Cosby Show was nothing more than blacks acting White. In sweaters. If the Cosby Show (both one and two) was indicative of the black race this website would not need to exist.

I stand by my argument: blacks in tv do not promote or represent reality or progress.

Cosby's transition from Black actor over to entertainment mega-star might not have happened without "I Spy". He was America's first significant introduction of a Black man to regular episodic programming. Can the same be said for Flip Wilson? I do not think that Sammy Davis Jr. was playing any regular roles back then.

If Lalo Schifrin's "Mission Impossible" theme song didn't set the bar for all such music to come I don't know what did. It sure as hell wasn't "Gilligan's Island". The Barney Collier character played by Greg Morris was certainly one of the first Magic Negroes™ to appear on television's horizon.

Finally, "Star Trek" is quite easily the most iconic of all television shows ever made. It is certainly television's equivalent of Lucas' "Star Wars". What, with how many spinoffs going for how many decades now?

William Shatner and Nichelle Nichols shared television's first ever onscreen interracial kiss. If that doesn't stand for "iconic", I don't know what does.

Your statement presupposes that the cable industry has the power to keep this from happening. It doesn't. A la carte programming is the wave of the future, whether the cable companies like it or not. We're already moving in that direction with Netflix instant. If the cable industry doesn't go along, it will be supplanted by something else.

Incidentally, one of the main reasons that a la carte programming has not hitherto been offered by cable companies is actually due to technical problems that exist with filtering out certain channels in cable transmissions. For abstruse reasons that I won't get into here, it's possible to block out all channels above any given channel that go into a subscribers home (the premium stuff is on the higher channels), but it's not possible to block out different channels willy-nilly which would give subscribers the option of choosing only those channels they want. This problem doesn't exist on the internet, though, so one of the main obstacles has been removed.

There are many future possibilities as far as the Western social condition. It is always good to be prepared but internal hot warfare is not one of the more likely possibilities in the near term. There is too much to lose.

I agree very much. Far too many people are resisting an apocalyptic scenario, and they do so for good reasons. Sadly, there some things about the system which are seriously broken. They will require Herculean efforts from within to repair.

A viable third party would be one starting point. Another is a Constitutional convention where reforms to the 14th Amendment, retirement benefits for elected officials and government employees, immigration in general, federal campaign finance along with term limits for the Supreme Court would all be central issues.

We need to work fast while Whites are still a majority.

I am the first 'Anonymous' who replied to the original pot-stirrer of this thread, Mr. Rational.
That is me at 6:25 AM.

I struggle to understand a mind that equates "the Scots-Irish I know here in my little tiny part of America" and "every Scots-Irish person in the world".

America is a country in which the extremely poor white are the absolute most down-trodden and abandoned sector of society. Couple that to an imported tradition of drinking, and you have a recipe for the kind of social degradation, to which you are unfortunately obviously a witness.

One prominent Scots-Irish hillbilly "Appalachian" (I must use those annoying marks to signify my extremely shallow understanding of the term based upon a cursory Wiki page glance) I know of is Conan O'Brien. Oh Conan, you darned hillbilly with your doctor/professor father and lawyer mother, living in that hillbilly neighborhood of inbred squalor, up there in hillbilly Whitopia.

To Mr GJG, latterly an anti-Nordicist. My friend, you have a chip on your shoulder. I spoke not of IQ, nor of brain supremacy. I merely alluded to the fact that he would need to sharpen his ability to think logically and to come to logical conclusions, should he wish to compete in a world filled with 'Scots-Irish hillbillies'. I am reasonably sure that most white Americans remain untainted by the blood of the Scots-Irish. Oh, the horror.

Mr. Rational, you say

"Are you also a hillbilly whose family tree looks like a Pakistani clan, with generation after generation of first cousins producing inbred offspring?

I guess you must be, otherwise you wouldn't be taking offense."

I respond: no, I didn't take offense because I am a hillbilly whose family fits the above description. I took offense because I am Scots-Irish.

Savvy?

Mr Rational: I wish for you the financial means to travel widely and broadly in the future, such that you can experience the truth of humanity as it exists all over the world, not just in the American microcosm.

The Irish were hated in England as recently as my dad's childhood in the 50s and 60s. Derided and even violently attacked, their shops and businesses by turns ransacked or boycotted. I can assume that much of the same met them upon their immigration en masse to the USA.

All I see is generations and generations of hard workers. My great-uncle moved to New York and has a happy, stable, well-educated and wealthy pool of descendants there, much like his brothers do here in the UK, and in Australia and Canada.
I have some 35 first cousins, most of whom are married (and not to mention university-educated and wealthy) so I will have scant opportunity for inbreeding, should my natural Scots-Irish tendency for such rear it's ugly head.

Wherever our large clan of Scots-Irish has gone, we have brought nothing but money and stability.

If I should one day peruse my family tree further back than the 350 years or so for which I have already done as much, and find some vast incestuous group of "hillbillies" I shall do nothing but conclude how successful such inbreeding has been in producing excellent humans.

I'm afraid that aside from the above, all I can really say to Mr. Rational is "Good luck" and "I hope you find happiness and success in life like have I and mine".

With that out of the way, let me say I am right along with the others who have taken you to task. This is not, in any way, a time for ethnic snobbery or belittlement among Whites. It is self-defeating.

"William Shatner and Nichelle Nichols shared television's first ever onscreen interracial kiss. If that doesn't stand for "iconic", I don't know what does."

Not to belabor the point but I must disagree. Having one groundbreaking memorable scene does not make a show iconic.

Quick, name for me any other major scene with the black communication officer. Indeed, the only other thing Star Trek is remembered for concerning blacks is that the black guy on the landing party is always the first to die. (So goes the legend.)

Yes, Star Trek itself later on became iconic but remember the show was originally on for only three years and was considered a flop at the time. But, it is argued, that was because it was ahead of its time. And what made it so popular later on was people started to realize it was about concepts not just adventure.

And to me shows with concepts are the the ones which become iconic. Seinfeld is the best example. "Soup Nazi, sponge worthy, a show about nothing", etc were not just catch phrases - they were concepts.

Just because a show does something first does not mean it is iconic. It is the enduring appeal that the show brings to the culture not just when it originally airs but also to future audiences. This is done, usually, by shows that are "smart". Nothing on BET or produced by Tyler Perry falls into that category.

"Please drop the ridiculous group-think."

Having an understanding of a threat and working together to overcome that threat is not group-think. Like it or not, you are part of a tribe. Everyone is.

ok, I'm not sure what's up with the Irish Scot bashing either. Are we going with the hoary sterotype of lower income whites inbreeding? Because that's the type of crap I'd expect from black. Seriously, when did the Irish or Scottish become the problem?

So we're all worried about the blacks raping and killing, and we're all angry and BRA taxing whites to pay for black failures, but while we're worried about the future of life in the US let's make fun of the Irish/Scots? Is that it, because outside of DWL I've never heard that shows whites are more inclined to committ incest then blacks or asians. In fact I've heard in muslim communities it's a bigger problem.

Rusty Mason and Dissident need to take a look at the state of Scots-Irish America, because it's not good. It is degenerating to black cultural norms.

Steve Sailer notes that the illegitimate birth rate in the bottom 30% of whites is close to 50%. Remember, Daniel Patrick Moynihan's early 60's report about the state of black America trumpeted the astronomical illegitimacy rate of 22%.

The town of Waycross, GA is split roughly 50/50 black/white (Southern whites, aka Scots-Irish). Single-mother households formed 37% of all households with children. In the 1990's, 95% of the student body qualified for meal assistance. The author of that piece had this to say about the attitude of the students:

Then the students provided the concrete examples I had been unable to offer in college discussions. The first clue came when the teenagers complained about their “free” lunches (which were really quite good). This ingratitude toward the kitchen was intolerable given that to receive this daily meat these young people merely had to pick up a tray. Common courtesy dictated that even if one received a horrible gift, the giver should at least receive a “thank you.” However, these students had been taught to believe that they were entitled to government gifts.

This notion of being owed something had infected all areas of their lives, with disastrous consequences. The benefits received were not earned in any usual sense of the word. Certainly no personal labor had been exchanged for the wealth received. This in turn affected their respect for private property. If they saw something they wanted, they took it. From their point of view, this made perfect sense. If they were entitled to or owed benefits from the government without any work being exchanged, then why should they bother to work for any of their possessions? The concept of ownership implies that something, usually work, has been exchanged for the created or transferred wealth. How could these young people be convinced of the immorality of stealing when everyday they received wealth (government benefits) they had not earned? In other words, if they were owed item A (benefits) without the exchange of labor, then why were they not also owed item B (another individual’s shoes or jacket)?

You can say that the author was a DWL and that he was describing purely black misbehavior as if it was across the board, but the illegitimacy statistics don't lie. Your Scots-Irish pride needs some repairs at the foundations.

Anon at 3:00 PM: There were notices posted at a local park, telling of union apprenticeships opening up. I copied them and gave them to a couple young White former foster boys I knew, one of them Jewish, the other of German-French ancestry. Neither was interested. "I'd rather shovel shit", said the Jewish one. That was over a year ago, and they're both still idle. One, who had not held a job in over four years, is getting married to a White girl who works as a motel maid. Worst of all, they're not dumb. The soon-to-be-married bozo has an IQ of 121, and the other is just as intelligent.
This is one of the greater crimes of the multi-cult, the Negrification of lower-class Whites.

Sorry, Anon at 3:00, I left off my point. It's not the Scots-Irish, it's the White working class that is turning into shit.

All races are of African descent. White skin came about as a result of a genetic mutation when their African ancestors migrated out of Africa to areas where sunlight was less intense. The mutation proved beneficial because it allowed for greater absorption of Vitamin D from the lesser intense sunlight. Other than skin color, there is little genetic difference between races. You can't tell whether a person is black or white based purely on DNA.

As for the relationship between IQ and race, if you lend credibility to such a thing, whites have lower scores than Asians, and Jews have the highest scores of all. But there is no scientific evidence to support that the racial difference is due to genetics. When studies of genetic contribution to intelligence examine geographic ancestry and cognitive abilities with the same environmental influences, they show that there is no correlation between intelligence and race. A possible reason for the gap between IQ scores of different races may have to do with the differing values that some races ascribe to education. In school, smart and overly studious children are teased and called nerds usually by white and black children. Asian culture in general usually strongly emphasizes the value and importance of education. A black or white child will sometimes dumb themselves down and stop trying to excel academically in order to fit in. If a person grows up in an environment or society that devalues education and derides him for his intelligence, he will stop using his intelligence and his mental abilities will atrophy. Quite probably blacks and to a lesser degree whites have discounted the value of education and the results have been shown in IQ tests.

To think that any race is somehow better purely because of a genetic mutation that occurred only to better adapt to a different environment is utterly ludicrous and the height of stupidity. Instead of focusing on race, focus instead on being an individual.

Discard said...

Anon at 9:18 AM, Mar 2: You are misinformed. It can absolutely be determined whether a person is Black or White by DNA, and even the degree of mixture in Mulattos. You are waaaay behind the science curve.

There are other adaptations than skin color. Are not the hair texture and facial features of Sub-Saharan Africans and Europeans obviously different? There are also less obvious differences, such as fat distribution, bone density, and intelligence.

There is no reliable evidence that Orientals have higher IQs than Whites, since we do not have random samples. Those who emigrate to the West are the educated urbanites, not peasant farmers. Even the descendants of the Chinese who came here in the 19th Century are not typical, even if their ancestors might have been. There were very few Chinese women, and it was the most successful, wealthiest, smartest of the Chinese who married them and had offspring. That is what is technically known as a genetic bottleneck, btw.

European Jews do have higher IQs than Whites, because of mating customs that favored the smart boys of poor men over the dull boys of wealthy men. Torah study is a sorting mechanism for verbal ability. A wealthy man would rather marry his daughter off to a poor boy who did well at Torah than a wealthy boy who did not, which produces more smart offspring than marrying wealth to wealth. Do that for a millenium or so and you get smarter than average people. It's called eugenics.

Yes, there is scientific evidence for different cognitive abilities for different races. You just haven't been reading it. The antiquity of your knowledge has been made clear by your assertion that race cannot be ascertained from DNA. You might as well deny the possibility of atomic fission.

I (We?) do not claim that the White race is superior because our skin has adapted to northern climates. That would be the height of stupidity. We are a superior race because our ancestors had to adapt mentally to cope with the change of seasons. In Africa, the need for shelter and availability of food do not vary much with the seasons. In northern climates, they do, and those who lack the ability to plan ahead will die without offspring. A harsh climate is a sorting mechanism that selects higher intelligence.

We focus on race only because the institutions of society pretend it doesn't matter. We are doing the work that a healthy society does naturally. Whatever the virtues of any Black individual, in the aggregate, Blacks are a blight and a genetic pollutant. A town of 30,000 Whites is probably a pretty nice place. A town of 24,000 Whites and 6000 Blacks is not.
