Confessions of a Public Defender drew this comment from Allen West, who agreed that it described the situation of American black underclass behaviour.
By “racist” is meant “describes the behaviour observed without resort to exculpatory ruses such as blaming the situation on other people’s racism”. So in this sense, the description offered by the unnamed American public defender is not racist at all; it is merely an accurate description of the behaviour observed.
This quote is drawn from a description of the thugs who beat two girls at a cash register.
This inability to see things from someone else’s perspective helps explain why there are so many black criminals. They do not understand the pain they are inflicting on others. One of my robbery clients is a good example. He and two co-defendants walked into a small store run by two young women. All three men were wearing masks. They drew handguns and ordered the women into a back room. One man beat a girl with his gun. The second man stood over the second girl while the third man emptied the cash register. All of this was on video.
My client was the one who beat the girl. When he asked me, “What are our chances at trial?” I said, “Not so good.” He immediately got angry, raised his voice, and accused me of working with the prosecution. I asked him how he thought a jury would react to the video. “They don’t care,” he said. I told him the jury would probably feel deeply sympathetic towards these two women and would be angry at him because of how he treated them. I asked him whether he felt bad for the women he had beaten and terrorized. He told me what I suspected—what too many blacks say about the suffering of others: “What do I care? She ain’t me. She ain’t kin. Don’t even know her.”
The anonymous Public Defender concluded:
However, my experience has also taught me that blacks are different by almost any measure to all other people. They cannot reason as well. They cannot communicate as well. They cannot control their impulses as well. They are a threat to all who cross their paths, black and non-black alike.
I do not know the solution to this problem. I do know that it is wrong to deceive the public. Whatever solutions we seek should be based on the truth rather than what we would prefer was the truth. As for myself, I will continue do my duty to protect the rights of all who need me.
What makes so difficult public discussion of events, such as those that took place at Ferguson Missouri this year, is the total inability of any public figure to refer to a commonly observed but absolutely forbidden-to-mention reality of how American blacks of the underclass actually behave.
This vast and effective social prohibition makes it possible for many people to believe that the police are oppressing the black underclass, and that this is bad. Whereas, in truth, they are oppressing the black underclass barely enough to let white liberals drive to work in safety and tut-tut as they tune into National Public Radio reporting on Ferguson Missouri and police over-reaction.
It is so much easier to blame white racism, or anything handy, than to confront the reality of racial differences.
I notice the same thing with the Conservative government and global warming. They are allowed to say anything except that the phenomenon does not exist.
Whence do we get these vast and effective limits on thought and speech?
The inability to tolerate the truth is the persistent trait of the politically correct. The truth is what they insist that it is, and there is no objective standard against which to measure. In addition, there is no reason whereby to measure, there are only various “narratives” based on sex, class and power. The politically correct have abandoned faith in reason, because reason and objective standards stand in the way of their wish-fulfilment social policies. The only issue is who controls the “narrative”, in short, who shall rule.
It is by abandonment of faith in reason that we engender the social agreement to enforce the rules on what may be said and thought, that makes these prohibitions possible. There is no KGB doing this to us. It is we alone who are to blame.
