‘Racial Justice’ (Blow Me Down)

Barb Wire

Now that they’ve fixed Whitey by burning down all the minority-owned businesses they could get their hands on, the Ferguson protestors have popped up all over the country.

They want “racial justice,” whatever the blazes that is. A protestor in New York City, on Thanksgiving Day, carried a sign that offered a definition: “Abolish the Prison, Abolish the Police.”

They ought to get together with the flatworms at Occupy Wall Street, who want to abolish work. No police, no jails, no work. That ought to be a nice society to live in. Apparently “racial justice” consists of being allowed to be a predator upon your neighbor–take his stuff, take his life, no one will interfere. Although if no one is working, soon there won’t be any stuff worth taking.

But before we plunk the Race twanger too many times, let us consider the permanent under-class in Britain. Except for their skin color, and their own unique speech patterns, their behavior and culture is virtually identical to that of the inner-city under-class here in America. The low-class Brits are white, and they’re horrible.

It’s not race that turns people into animals, but government–in particular, government by socialists that promotes socialism. These poor wretched people come out of fatherless homes–I won’t call them “families”–and neighborhoods where no one works, they just sit around on the dole, and the socialization of the young males consists of joining a gang, getting high, committing various crimes, and getting girls pregnant. The socialization of the young females is not much different. This whole destructive pseudo-culture is heavily subsidized by the government so that it will go on forever, the dregs of humanity being a key part of any leftist voting base.

So Dr. Ben Carson is right–it has nothing to do with race, and everything to do with growing up fatherless, without learning any respect for authority, without learning the necessity of work, etc.

And as long as the Democrat Party remains in business;  as long as it desires a permanent under-class as a mine of votes or instant storm-troopers for those occasions upon which leftists feel the need to stir up violence; as long as the under-class is encouraged to believe that every man’s hand is raised against it, and its only protection comes from the liberal plantation-owners and their well-paid black overseers–as long as these things are done in America, there will be Fergusons.

And again, if you think it’s racial, just look across the Atlantic. You may wish to read Life at the Bottom, by Theodore Dalrymple, a former prison doctor and psychiatrist, to discover how close to identical, except for their skin color, are the under-classes at either end of the ocean.
