Defending a Question

Apparently some prominent local individual(s?) recently asked a forbidden question, prompting Racine County supervisor and Racine Parks director Donnie Snow to respond in a JT commentary entitled "Defending a race, setting an example." The question: "Where are the African American men?"Given the disproportiate incidence of violence perpetrated by black boys and men and other pathologies in our community, I think it is a fair question and one we all should consider.Unfortunately Donnie Snow reacted far too defensively to make a meaningful contribution to this discussion. Snow is a single father and a product of a single mother. He turned out OK, he gathers with other positive black men that are part of the solution etc... and he "refuse(s) to let anyone lump all black men and bring them down to the lowest, most mean-spirited stereotypes."Of course there are positive, decent, concerned, caring, and responsible black men in Racine and elsewhere. There are also far too many who are irresponsible and inclined towards criminal activity. By the way, I think this is a problem that exists outside the black community as well. However, the problem is more pronounced and obvious in the black community.Why can't we talk about the problems facing the black community? Why is Donnie Snow so defensive? When can we have a discussion without being accused of "lumping all blacks together" or contibuting to "mean-spirited stereotypes" or in other words, without being accused of racism?

Sorry readers but my computer won't let me separate my entry into separate paragraphs and I don't know why.

What is the problem with Black America? The pith of the issue is not with any flaw in the African genotype but rather a grave error in the phenotype.

Blacks have a culture that is preponderately more tribal than other European peoples. This system works very well in a static society with limited resources, but in today’s world, entrepreneurship, Protestant ethic, a propensity to save, respect for one’s own property as well as another’s are vital for success. We now live in an era of globalization in which wealth is created not as the result of a communal effort but rather individual endeavors. "One man’s prosperity is beneficial to all others.” - Frederic Basiat. Blacks still live in a culture of conflict theory in which one man’s wealth comes at the expense of another. This is the crux of the quandary.

But I’m just a precocious white male and that‘s merely my perspective. ;)

The whole welfare class is the issue and since so many are black if you say something of course they feel attacked.
As well The Black leadership can not because not wanting to be called an Uncle Tom and loosing whatever support they might receive in the Party that made them the Welfare class the Democratic.
In fact I feel that the Democrats NEED the Welfare class to stay in office.

Many blogs offer a link to an article or news item the bolg talks about. I missed Snow's response in the JT. Can you offer a link to it?

Why can't we this and that? How come they can use the "N" word and we can't? Wa Wa Wa! They are THEM and you are not! Despite the foolish anti-White, anti-Racist bull you and most all other White folk have been fed - race matters and racial loyalty and concern for ones race is health and natural. Negroids do not want to hear people of other races talking about their folk in certain ways since it is their folk - THEIR problem. You know how you might talk about your loved ones in somewhat harsh ways sometimes but you do not like others outside your group to do so since they are not one of you! You can get it with family but not with race since that would go against your indoctrinization but race is just an extended racial family. Negroids and ALL other racial groups are very racially loyal and thus very racist and just becuase you have bought into anti-racist nonsense does not mean they will ever buy into it. Besides they are being indoctrinated in different ways. Different propaganda is aimed at them to increase their racism and hatred for White people while the stuff aimed at you increases White guilt. Even with the same propaganda it is created to have different effects on different racial groups. Even if it was not that would be a natuural result often since we are naturally different in so many many ways. I understand that the problems in the negroid/mulatto communities do effect White folk and others in very net negative ways. Their very being here has a very very overall negative influence on all of us. Yes I know they kill 1,500 0f us minimum per year (over 60,000 from 1960 to 2000) and rape at least 25,000 White women per year for decades, and commit violence against over 1 million White folk every year for decades. Yes most crime is
"black on White" rather than "black on black". Still the answer is separation via racial cleansing to deal with the racial pollution in out national body. Airing their dirty laundry is ONLY helpful to educate White people and you should not be surprised that they do not like it.

One can tell that Navratil does not understand Barry Commoner because of ideological blindness.
