"A Brief for Whitey" by Pat Buchanon (from 2008)
This is an older Pat Buchanon article from 2008. I think a lot of it's still pertinent and worth remembering when we hear about the plight of the Black man in America. I think there is another side to the story that gets overlooked and Buchanon captured it well when he wrote this. I've bolded some important points.

A Brief for Whitey
Friday - March 21, 2008
By Patrick J. Buchanan

How would he pull it off? I wondered.

How would Barack explain to his press groupies why he sat silent in a pew for 20 years as the Rev. Jeremiah Wright delivered racist rants against white America for our maligning of Fidel and Gadhafi, and inventing AIDS to infect and kill black people?

How would he justify not walking out as Wright spewed his venom about “the U.S. of K.K.K. America,” and howled, “God damn America!”

My hunch was right. Barack would turn the tables.

Yes, Barack agreed, Wright’s statements were “controversial,” and “divisive,” and “racially charged,” reflecting a “distorted view of America.”

But we must understand the man in full and the black experience out of which the Rev. Wright came: 350 years of slavery and segregation.

Barack then listed black grievances and informed us what white America must do to close the racial divide and heal the country.

The “white community,” said Barack, must start “acknowledging that what ails the African-American community does not just exist in the minds of black people; that the legacy of discrimination — and current incidents of discrimination, while less overt than in the past — are real and must be addressed. Not just with words, but with deeds … .”

And what deeds must we perform to heal ourselves and our country?

The “white community” must invest more money in black schools and communities, enforce civil rights laws, ensure fairness in the criminal justice system and provide this generation of blacks with “ladders of opportunity” that were “unavailable” to Barack’s and the Rev. Wright’s generations.

What is wrong with Barack’s prognosis and Barack’s cure?

Only this. It is the same old con, the same old shakedown that black hustlers have been running since the Kerner Commission blamed the riots in Harlem, Watts, Newark, Detroit and a hundred other cities on, as Nixon put it, “everybody but the rioters themselves.”

Was “white racism” really responsible for those black men looting auto dealerships and liquor stories, and burning down their own communities, as Otto Kerner said — that liberal icon until the feds put him away for bribery.

Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America.

Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.

This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.

Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ’60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream.

Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks — with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas — to advance black applicants over white applicants.

Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.

We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude?

Barack talks about new “ladders of opportunity” for blacks.

Let him go to Altoona and Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for “deserving” white kids.

Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America? Is it really white America’s fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?

We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena. And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.


Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago.

materially yes.. America has been good for blacks.

spiritually and psychologically no.. because they give them affirmative action and don't see them "on the same level"

there is no dignity when you say "your race is disabled, so we must give you crutches"

I believe blacks can succeed at a reasonable level given the right environment and encouragement

the current state of black america is not good... 70% of black men have been to jail. 70% of kids are born out of wedlock. how is this a success?

Success must be achieved not given. This is still the land of opoortunity and many groups, races and ethnicities have come here and achieved success. People have to develop habits and lifestyles that breed success for them and their family. You can't just live your rebel lifestyle all of your life and then be upset later when you realize your choices didn't bring you success.

People including blacks that work hard here will achieve. Those that don't won't.

This country has done more to enable and empower black people than any other country. I know this doesn't fit your evil America narative but it's just fact.

I agree success must be achieved not given. That is why we enforce a meritocracy. whoever is good is good regardless of race. America clearly does not believe in this model.

in the USSA white is the default and everyone must conform to this in a roundabout manner

America is a capitalist country and those that work hard can achieve. You are trying to hard to blame a nation rather than putting the responsiblity on individuals.

Poor people come to this country of many colors and nationalities and they can find a way to be successful. It's not about racism it's about finding a way to be successful. I personally think the culture within Black America itself creates a lot of it's own problems. People like Al Sharpton, Rev Jackson and other race baiters only feed that mentality that black people are just victims. There aren't enough voices in that community that are teaching them to believe and be succesful. It's a negative mentality that gets sown in so many young kids in that community.

Like I said and as the article has shown. There are plenty of opportunities being given to the black community to succeed. But they are responsible for their own success.

Jesus said it best; According to your faith, be it unto you. Again he said; If thou canst believe, all things are possible to those that believe. That community needs positive voices teaching them to believe and achieve. Not the negative vicimization message that keeps getting fed to them.

In an increasingly limited way, perhaps.

I believe the USA is a place that you can be successful if you work hard. I personally know people of color here in the US that have risen up out of hard places and done well for themselves by working hard. Two friends in particular that lived in ghettos growing up but became moderately successful people through just working hard.

The USA is a place where you can still do well if you work hard.

Let's try this from another angle. What former slave nation does more for African slave decendents than America? Which nation has done more to help them prosper?

YOu can be successful sure if you work hard.. but if you are not white you have to work that much harder.. esp. asians. they have to work twice as hard to be at the same level as whites usually. they limit the amount of asian americans in the top schools as well. Virtually no asian representation in hollywood either.

With some non-asian minorities due to affirmative action yeah theoretically they could achieve less and get further but it's just demoralizing when the white man goes "hey here are some crutches"

the highest seats of powers in academia and govt. are all occupied by white people for the most part. They will let a few token minorities in to make themselves look diverse on paper and that's it.

If Asians act like foreigners in USA then of course they will have a hard time.

They don't work twice as hard to get by. Asians like studying and other stereotypical stuff.

I don't see them farming or in construction. I see lots of Latinos doing those things. That's hard work.

If you go to Asian countries how many non Asian do you see in parliament or whatever you call their communist govts?

Why should the US offer so much diversity when other countries do not? Diversity destroys. It never works.

If Asians learned engrish, learned to drive like non-morons, acted like Americans and didn't have attitudes which seem uppity then maybe they wouldn't have issues "getting ahead".

Anyone can be anything in the USA. You don't even have to work hard. You have to not be a criminal and you have to assimilate.

You can start a business and succeed or fail. If you are good at what you do you have a chance. The point is you have the opportunity. Nobody says you can't try.

In black areas the blacks work in all the govt jobs. City , county, state. Driver's license, car tags, permits, and WELFARE. There are almost no whites in any city building. But this is only in places where there are many blacks like the south. They give out the free shit, not white people. They demand it. They expect it and budget based on free money.

So they're either greedy or stupid.

Mexicans on non-border states are looking for work and they do work. The welfare is offered for sure but most of the men work hard. Harder than any Asian I've ever seen but I don't see many.

Every race has different traits and skillsets they just are better at. It tends to be that whites are better at management and invention and creation and a desire to improve.

Blacks are good at stealing and fighting and other crimes. Also sitting on porches and eating Bbq. They tend to shy away from earning anything at all.

Mexicans are good at picking vegetables and drywall and masonry. Damn good. It's amazing to watch them work.

Asians are good at chopping up shrimps and cooking it in front of me. Also at producing some of the hottest and ugliest chicks alive. And generally acting totally opposite of the people they are around.

East Indians are good at operating awful, tiny convenience stores and smelling really bad.

Remember, different strokes! It takes all kinds!

I do think blacks in the US are treated much better than in years past on a material level.. but I do think the white liberals are playing games with them and not letting them define their own identity. A good example was white liberals promoting EBONICS in the black community. How is that helpful?

Also they shut down any criticism of black culture which does not allow the culture to improve. Look what they did to Bill Cosby.

At the end of the day most of the blacks we see today are descendants of people who were forcefully brought here by white/jewish slave traders. They didn't want to be here in the first place, so you have to take that into account.

I just don't like it when people apologize for slavery.

A lot of countries never had slavery.. indentured servants.. but full on CHATTLE US SLAVERY.. I wouldn't say every country engaged in that over the last 2000 years. China never had chattle slavery for the most part.

Those who know, know! Big Grin
