"Here, though, there are no oppressors. No one’s forcing you to do this. You willingly tie yourself to these leashes."

"And you willingly become utterly socially autistic. You no longer pick up on basic human communication clues. You’re at a table with three humans, all of whom are looking at you and trying to talk to you, and you’re staring at a screen, searching for strangers in Dubai.... But you’re not very interesting anymore. You sit at a desk twelve hours a day and you have nothing to show for it except for some numbers that won’t exist or be remembered in a week. You’re leaving no evidence that you lived. There’s no proof.... And worse, you’re not doing anything interesting anymore. You’re not seeing anything, saying anything. The weird paradox is that you think you’re at the center of things, and that makes your opinions more valuable, but you yourself are becoming less vibrant. I bet you haven’t done anything offscreen in months. Have you?"

From Dave Eggers, "The Circle."

He's telling white people, in their freedom, they do things without thinking - like practicing racism.

He's also saying not knowing they do these things is no protection.

How do I know this?

Dave Eggars put out one of the books I was featured in - nice guy.

"I also fail to understand why people like things that don't interest me."

Will white people ever accept criticism on face value, or will it ever be snark, denial, projection, and other psychological phenomena any child can see through?

As a race, you do yourselves such a disservice, and your timing is just AWFUL:

Your actions are now being JUDGED and you still wanna flip the bird?

While I agree its better to interact with the people you are with than the screen on the phone, you can get a lot of interesting conversation material from all those gadgets. If you choose to.

Is it so different than the person who, in the olden days, always had their nose in a book?

Farmer said...

I didn't click the link, but I think what he's saying is mostly based on his ideas about what having a robust online life must mean rather than any observations. From what I've seen social media gets more people participating in life. Probably not meaningfully or with much importance, but so what? That's the way it was before the Internet too. The difference was people were much lonelier and less engaged. I can't work without the Internet. Nor can any of my friends or people I work with. I don't see any of them obsessively checking their phone in lieu of dinner conversations. None of them are sitting around alone at home living a fake life online. If anything, we're all doing much more than we used to socially (I certainly am, anyway), in large part because I have (or seem to have) more choices now. What he describes is something I've never seen, anywhere. I can't help thinking he's making it up.

Science fiction writers in the 60s and 70s used to imagine horrible futures where people were more engaged with virtual reality than reality but they were being hysterical. It's the same old reality, with some new bells and whistles. The only things that are really different are overwhelmingly positive - like being able to cheaply and easily stay in touch with people all over the world, access information about just about anything, etc.

Writers are so curmudgeonly about technology. Grow up, you babies.

I agree - because blacks being shot dead (or choked out) in broad daylight, and also having black bodies laying in the street for hours, is just the kind of encouragement a black needs to get out there and give whites and America our 100%. It's all part of white progress, yo:

They used to hang us up in train stations, or the public square, after they killed us - so they're learning!

Not about law, for example, or pop culture or politics. Nope, it's really just about how much money we owe Crack as recompense for being born into a world he finds upsetting.

DS: "It's pretty sweet how every thread on Althouse is about how much money we owe Crack..."

Impossible since Ann opposes "ugliness" in all it's forms and insists that commenters stay "reasonably on topic".

So, you see, er.....uh...well, I guess every thread is about how much money we owe crack.

And about how uniquely horrible, mentally deficient, cruel, brutal, unthinking, incapable of growth and thiefs of unprecendented magnitude all white people have been since the beginning of time and are today and will be tomorrow.

Lets face it, crack is the "best" thing to happen to race relations since Bull Connor.

Can you imagine how useful crack is to those who argue for acceptance of the idea of innate differences between peoples based solely on skin color?

We're estimated to be $100 Trillion.

According to your accounting, since we've been only partially free for about 30 years, I'd say my greed won't be satisfied without at least another $70 Trillion - directly deposited, of course.

"Not about law, for example, or pop culture or politics."

No - the police shooting a black kid while walking to his grandmother's, and then occupying an entire black town like an invading white army, has nothing what-so-ever to do with "law, for example, or pop culture or politics."

John said...

Crack,

That link you gave us for race as a moving target at your blog is kind of interesting. It is something you have mentioned before here and we've sort of skimmed over.

You talk about Irish and Jews (Specifically, though I think you and I could add more groups, esp Asians) as having "become white".

I would probably use a different word, perhaps "mainstream", "American", "generally accepted" "undifferentiated" or something like that. But let's go with you word.

Japanese, and even more, Chinese used to be blacker than black in the US, to use your color scale. I think you are saying, and I agree, that have become "white".

Blacks, if they do become "white", get mocked by you and many others as "Toms" as you did in your blog.

So I am confused here. Should blacks become "white", like Chinese, Irish and others did? Is it possible for them to become "white"? Is the problem with becoming "white" physical like skin color? If so, why can Mexicans, Indians, North Africans and others with very dark skin become white and blacks can't?

Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and other groups are physically distinct and could easily be picked out of a crowd. They used to be, but as you note, they generally are not any more. They have become "white"

So I wonder why you think it would not be possible for blacks, as a group, to become "white". What makes y'all so special that you can't?

And, for the sake of argument, assume you could: Should you?

Would that be a good thing or would it be preferable to continue being "The other" as some progs like to call it?

What about you, Crack. If you could become "white", not in skin tone but in the sense the other groups have become white, would you?

Or would you rather just cry "Poor me. Give me money/reparations"

FWIW: For what it is worth, I think blacks could become "white" in the way you use the term. I think to a large extent, over the past 60+ years I've been wondering around, they have. I think that is a good thing for all. I hope the trend continues and think it will.

Your mileage may vary.

I think people get so stuck in the virtual world that they forget or don't want to actually take the trouble to interact face to face with real people. Although you can learn a lot about people online, that's not necessarily a good thing. There's quite a few people that I probably would like in person that I abhor after reading their opinions on line. Maybe I'm old fashioned - but I prefer real conversation with real people face to face.

The Crack Emcee said...

John,

"Crack,

A lot of people do. Culture's role on and over politics isn't a place most political junkies find they have good footing.

"You talk about Irish and Jews (Specifically, though I think you and I could add more groups, esp Asians) as having "become white"."

Not exactly. Whites were specific with the Irish and Jews ("No Irish, No Niggers, No Dogs!") and, as I pointed out, a group can fall out of favor again. Remember the Japanese take-over scare of the '80s and, now, how China's going to eat us alive using oxen in the rice paddies? Lesson: "white" is fickle. Race is a moving target.

Being a "model minority" is American white supremacy's constraint on Asians - do they really have to be perfect to be acceptable?

"I would probably use a different word, perhaps "mainstream", "American", "generally accepted" "undifferentiated" or something like that. But let's go with you word."

Those are all distinctly different concepts. Bill Cosby has gone "mainstream," but only because whites applaud him not being overtly "black."

You're about to misuse the idea but go for it:

"Japanese, and even more, Chinese used to be blacker than black in the US, to use your color scale. I think you are saying, and I agree, that have become "white"."

No, as I said, they're still "the other" to Americans - but one with clout.

"Blacks, if they do become "white", get mocked by you and many others as "Toms" as you did in your blog."

Why would white be anyone's goal? The implication is black's got something wrong with it - that's a mental problem. It was whites who declared themselves superior beings for all time and - last time I checked - America was supposed to be committed to ending that kind of talk. How that translates into whites continuing to put "black" down, to so many of you, is hard to comprehend. It's like you can't just be.

"So I am confused here."

Great - that makes two of us.

"Should blacks become "white", like Chinese, Irish and others did?"

Again - why would that be a goal - for anybody? Were the racist segregationist Uncle Tom-loving speech writers of the past so good we can't let their white supremacist drivel die and make a new nation? Hasn't that cultural message done enough damage? Is "white" imbued with some power few can see?

"Is it possible for them to become "white"?

I don't think so - let them start saying "black" things and Herman Cain, etc., will find their white "support" disappear. That's the lesson again: whites are fickle.

"Is the problem with becoming "white" physical like skin color?"

No, it's cultural, and dragged down by centuries of unexamined historical baggage. "Uncle Tom" is a white concept ("Uncle Tom's Cabin") but you stick the imprimatur on blacks - as history and culture says you would. You don't ask yourself why whites still prefer the few Uncle Toms but, today, extremely dislike the majority of blacks who they used to have serve in your homes.

"If so, why can Mexicans, Indians, North Africans and others with very dark skin become white and blacks can't?"

Because they're not culturally "black" - they weren't white's "bedwarmers." Easy-access rape victims. They weren't expected to breastfeed white's children. I could go on but remember - this was all against our will. How much more comfortable are you going to be, here, if you're an Indian rather than a black guy with your same last name?

The Crack Emcee said...

"Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and other groups are physically distinct and could easily be picked out of a crowd. They used to be, but as you note, they generally are not any more. They have become "white""

Jesus, you ARE confused. They all have homelands and whole families and networks that go back centuries that lend money to open stores in black neighborhoods when they get here - things blacks only dream of but had stolen from them at every step of the way here. Build a town? Whites burned it down. Open a store? Whites burned it down. Got an idea? Whites stole it.

And now they ask "Why couldn't blacks do anything?" without acknowledging what whites did.

"So I wonder why you think it would not be possible for blacks, as a group, to become "white".

We don't see white as a goal - that's white supremacy talking. Let's shoot for ending up as human beings. You go first. Stop fucking with blacks. It should be easy.

"What makes y'all so special that you can't?"

Four centuries of megalomaniac white murderers saying their asinine sense of themselves will never stop piercing the ears of we other Americans:

Sorry, Assholes - white's done.

"And, for the sake of argument, assume you could: Should you?"

Assume the sociopathic Aryan Superman staring-off-into-the-distance, I'm-an-individual posture, that allows me to hurt my fellow citizens Nazi-like without guilt (and like they're the enemy) while completely contradicting that and demanding the people I hurt die in patriotic battle to protect the collective I openly say I don't respect?

Nah - doesn't work for me. Blacks marched to join a country, and being full citizens of a country's what we're gonna get, damn it. Why do you think I work on you so much? Because you need a real black person in your life - not a Tom.

That's American.

The Crack Emcee said...

"Would that be a good thing or would it be preferable to continue being "The other" as some progs like to call it?"

Dude, we're all "other" - you don't give to give up being Irish or whatever - nobody cares:

Just drop the white supremacy.

"What about you, Crack. If you could become "white", not in skin tone but in the sense the other groups have become white, would you?"

You haven't been here long - there was a time when this crowd treated me kinda as white, but there was a price to be paid for it and I wouldn't.

That's why I make sure you know you're "white" now - they let me know I was "black" even when I was colorblind.

Which is why colorblind is bullshit.

"Or would you rather just cry "Poor me. Give me money/reparations"

What is your problem with grasping the concept of justice? A crime has been committed - a massive crime. It needs to be resolved. What about that deserves to be characterized as "cry "Poor me."? Do you think trivializing what is obviously VERY IMPORTANT to blacks makes "white" more sympathetic to blacks? Something we'd want to join?

"FWIW: For what it is worth, I think blacks could become "white" in the way you use the term."

You've forgotten the moving target already. Michael Jordan is accepted as "white" but that's because he keeps his black private - that's the white supremacy rule.

Obama's an African-American in the White House - he can't be "black" or Michael K will start loading his pistol.

"I think to a large extent, over the past 60+ years I've been wondering around, they have."

Have you been into the ghettos? Do you go where blacks live? Think of all the photos Ann posts - any from black parts of town? Is that deliberate? Not just by her but by whites? And, if so or not or whatever, how do you know how accepted we are? Because you see some at work? That tells you little. And really nothing about their lives. Whites have 20 times are wealth and act like we're the same because I can now sit in the next stall from you in the bathroom. It's cheap.

"I think that is a good thing for all."

You would - it's a myth that sustains white supremacy - and thus benefits you some more. Whites have stolen, raped, etc. and - if they never have to answer for it financilally - they'll be exclusively on top for all time.

Income inequality, you know.

"I hope the trend continues and think it will."

I hope we kill this baby in it's sleep and lick the blood from our fingers like KFC.

"Your mileage may vary."

I'm coming to get you, white boy - LOL.

Sleep well, John Henry,...

The Crack Emcee said...

John Henry,

I don't know if this is a perfect "moving target" analogy, but think of American culture like a river. You're a rock, stuck in the mud, and you can't recognize the contours of the river until it pries you out - or you pry yourself.

Then, you can see "Nigger" become "Negro" become "African-American" become "black" and it's part of the river's natural flow from us first demanding to be called "Mr." or "Miss" after the role of "slaves" - it's freedom in action, really. Even today. Not to be ridiculed. Whites should be encouraging us - something Ann's critics don't understand.

You guys act like blacks talking openly is some old thing rather than what it is - an entirely new thing. Your rage is partially due to that - it's almost "How dare he?" - when the truth is Americans should be talking to each other. There's a black kid dead in the fucking street, yo.

Getting reparations right - not just the money but the revealing of the history - will be America's greatest achievement.

Getting it wrong will truly reduce us to what we'll be:

Not even a mediocrity,...

I'm saying it - and all you can say to that is you're not - which carries no weight with me because I've been watching y'all for years. I know your attitudes - you've been very vocal with your racism when you didn't think any blacks were watching - so your denials mean nothing.

One black over here - 21,000 blacks over there.

Guess who whites think sees things clearly and will throw their support behind?

It's like with Herman Cain and the Toms:

You've got the same 5 or 6 black faces that you cherish (Herman Cain, Thomas Sowell, etc.) vs. THE ENTIRETY OF THE AMERICAN BLACK RACE.

Which side do whites listen to?

400 years of slavery, etc. vs. about 30 years of partial freedom?

No need for reparations because, everybody knows, 30 is waaaay bigger than 400.

That's the level of intelligence a "white" education gets you.

But, thank goodness, you fool only yourselves - notice I keep going?

You're racists and a black man's telling you so

The black man in question calls people racists for not agreeing with his belief that African-Americans are just too dumb to:

- form stable family units;
- take advantage of free education; and
- stop slaughtering its own unborn and born children.

Yes, we know you have silly and illogical excuses for this self-destructive behavior, and that you prefer having excuses to actually making a good faith effort. Sure, some of the comments here have been racist and inaccurate, but the reason you convince no-one is because your excuses are hollow and your arguments are unconvincing.

Like I said, Ann.

He is ruining your blog.

Like the jerk you sometimes find yourself seated next to at a sporting event, always yelling at the refs and any home team player who dares to make a mistake. Free speech and all that, but what a fucking jerk-off.

And metaphysically not self-aware.

SomeoneHasToSayIt said...

BYW, Crack, that Anti-Crack video guy absolutely NAILED your ass. lol. And he doesn't need to be more than just one guy.

The Truth, against any number of others.

Pookie Number 2,

I said "African-Americans are just too dumb" to do something. Fine.

If that's YOUR reading of my words - and it is - I suggest you show "a good faith effort" and (rather than continuing white supremacy and lecturing black men) direct further comments to those whites on this thread - you say you can see - are being "racist and inaccurate," since that is the historic crime under discussion:

Ann, hold the presses - there's a new Sheriff in town!

Pook, I can't wait to see your work:

Go get 'em, Tiger,....

"BYW, Crack, that Anti-Crack video guy absolutely NAILED your ass. lol. And he doesn't need to be more than just one guy."

Because you are such an accurate judge of my arguments or character.

"The Truth, against any number of others."

Which includes Ann and Meade.

Ooopsie!

that's YOUR reading of my words - and it is

It's the only possible reading of your words. Whenever these issues come up, you attribute them to, say, white slaveowners breaking up families. It never occurs to you that African Americans are capable of recognizing and changing bad practices.

I suggest you show "a good faith effort" and (rather than continuing white supremacy and lecturing black men)

I don't much care what you suggest. I do think that you need to be lectured, though. Your ideas are weak, and your imbecilic defenses of bad cultural behavior do far more to support white supremacy than anything I could ever write.

direct further comments to those whites on this thread - you say you can see - are being "racist and inaccurate," since that is the historic crime under discussion:

Happy to. I hereby sincerely denounce anyone that thinks blacks are less capable than whites, whether that's the people writing in pretend Ebonics, or Crack's insistence that blacks are hopeless victims.

Pookie Number 2,

"It's the only possible reading of your words."

Even after I disagree with the reading - great. You're an Einstein.

"Whenever these issues come up, you attribute them to, say, white slaveowners breaking up families. It never occurs to you that African Americans are capable of recognizing and changing bad practices."

Oh, so now I'm saying - ME - that blacks aren't "capable of recognizing and changing bad practices." I swear, the white mind is fascinating.

Did it ever occur to you - I know it's a long shot - that there's more than one influence working on black culture, and life, after 400 years of white interference? That a mere 30 years of partial freedom - not even a full generation and still without the money blacks earned that whites stole - might not be long enough to fix 400 years of white interference?

White man's really got us all figured out, don't you?

Just like during slavery,...

"I don't much care what you suggest."

White supremacy is nice, ain't it? Thank God, it won't last - and you're going to care. A lot.

"I do think that you need to be lectured, though."

Because that's what white men think they do so well. Can't a one of them touch MLK, Malcolm X, Barack Obama, etc., but - for some reason - they think others want to listen to them. OUGHT to listen to them.

The same guy who just said he doesn't care what I say.

White Insanity - AWAY!

"Your ideas are weak, and your imbecilic defenses of bad cultural behavior do far more to support white supremacy than anything I could ever write."

No, I think murder did that for you - be proud of it, too.

"I hereby sincerely denounce anyone that thinks blacks are less capable than whites, whether that's the people writing in pretend Ebonics, or Crack's insistence that blacks are hopeless victims."

Aw, come on - name names like you called me out. Don't be sweet to the white guys. Humiliate them. Let them know they're from a culture that won't stop belittling the oppressed - for kicks - which makes them sadists.

Come on, show a little fairness, white man - get mad like you do with blacks.

Lying hypocrite shits are what you are,...

The Crack Emcee said...

"Hey, you guys, stop that!"

- Pookie, showing how condemnation works against whites

"Crack Emcee, shut the fuck up - and Ann should have you banned!"

- Whites, showing how condemnation works against blacks

It's also how the justice system works - in this paradise of racial fair play,...

You're more than stupid enough to not understand the implications of the twaddle you write.

"Whenever these issues come up, you attribute them to, say, white slaveowners breaking up families. It never occurs to you that African Americans are capable of recognizing and changing bad practices."

Oh, so now I'm saying - ME - that blacks aren't "capable of recognizing and changing bad practices." I swear, the white mind is fascinating.


You say it over and over again.

Did it ever occur to you - I know it's a long shot - that there's more than one influence working on black culture, and life, after 400 years of white interference? That a mere 30 years of partial freedom - not even a full generation and still without the money blacks earned that whites stole - might not be long enough to fix 400 years of white interference?

It might not. It would be impressive if your response during those 30 years wasn't to accelerate cultural decay.

"I don't much care what you suggest."

White supremacy is nice, ain't it? Thank God, it won't last - and you're going to care. A lot.


I disregard your suggestions because they are stupid, not because you're black.

"I do think that you need to be lectured, though."

Because that's what white men think they do so well. Can't a one of them touch MLK, Malcolm X, Barack Obama, etc., but - for some reason - they think others want to listen to them. OUGHT to listen to them.


You OUGHT to listen because your life is a pathetic failure, and it behooves you to think about why.

"Your ideas are weak, and your imbecilic defenses of bad cultural behavior do far more to support white supremacy than anything I could ever write."

No, I think murder did that for you - be proud of it, too.


When you confuse what you think - in your tortured, unsophisticated, and incompetent mind - with what actually *is*, you end up will all sorts of idiotic conclusions.

"I hereby sincerely denounce anyone that thinks blacks are less capable than whites, whether that's the people writing in pretend Ebonics, or Crack's insistence that blacks are hopeless victims."

Aw, come on - name names like you called me out. Don't be sweet to the white guys. Humiliate them. Let them know they're from a culture that won't stop belittling the oppressed - for kicks - which makes them sadists.


They're individual bad examples from a generally humane and introspective culture. Their culture isn't slaughtering its young by the thousands.

Come on, show a little fairness, white man - get mad like you do with blacks.

I don't get mad with blacks. I'm saddened by the examples of self-destruction, disappointed in their preference for leadership that tells them that nothing is their fault, and entertained by your inability to think.

Yep. Kind of like the kid whose eternal reply is "I know you are, but what am I?"

Crack,

Thanks for your comment on Bill Cosby. I think you are making my point for me.

I suspect that nobody looking at a picture of him would would identify him as anything other than a black African-American. Yet I think that most Americans who know anything Cosby see him as "white" (using your term) man.

Him and millions, perhaps tens of millions, of other black men and womenin all walks and levels of American life..

Doesn't mean subservient. Doesn't mean Yassuhing and shuffling. Just means acting like normal people and being accepted as such.
