The Last American Cowboys
There is nowhere left in the United States where one can flee the omnipresent Thought Police. Thomas Kawczynski, now former town manager of Jackman, Maine, population 862 (99.98% white), and steward of New Albion, a project that promotes the traditional culture of New England, was harassed out of his job for putting forth a pair of radical notions that Islam maybe, just maybe, is not compatible with Western civilization, and that whites deserve the same civil rights as everyone else. If you’ll pardon the pun, this was deemed “beyond the pale,” and Kawczynski lost his job, was harried by Antifa, and was uniformly condemned by the Maine Town, City, and County Management Association. As Kawczynski writes, “Never mind the inconvenient fact that I’ve never said a cross word about any minority, and I think all people should be proud of their heritage and backgrounds. That wasn’t fit to print.”
Certainly not! There is no room for HATE in Dirigo. These Cult-Marx SJWs behave as though they are all about free love and understanding, but these are the most repressive, intolerant people on the planet, along with Muslims. Kawczynski, like fellow Mainer Governor Paul LePage, made the horrendous gaffe of publicly “noticing things.” LePage got himself in hot water a while back by stating the obvious:
These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty—these types of guys—they come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, they go back home. Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we have to deal with down the road.
LePage, it should be noted, is actually correct in his observation, and this has sent the commentariat and white-collar virtue-signalers into a conniption. Elaborates Le Page:
Let me tell you this, explain to you, I made the comment that black people are trafficking in our state. Now, ever since I said that comment, I’ve been collecting every single drug dealer who has been arrested in our state. I don’t ask them to come to Maine and sell their poison, but they come, and I will tell you that 90-plus percent of those pictures in my book, and it’s a three-ringed binder, are black and Hispanic people from Waterbury, Connecticut, the Bronx and Brooklyn… Look, the bad guy is the bad guy, I don’t care what color he is. When you go to war, if you know the enemy and the enemy dresses in red and you dress in blue, then you shoot at red.
Though it appears LePage’s numbers may be inflated according to the FBI (which conveniently does not have the crime statistics for Hispanics available in this case), they do note that blacks accounted for 14% of drug sale and manufacturing arrests, which, given Maine has a 1% black population, is a staggering overrepresentation. Blacks accounted for 36% of the arrests for cocaine and opioids. So LePage might be being a little hyperbolic, but there’s no question that there is a racial component to the heroin and drug epidemic in the state of Maine. To his second point regarding the impregnation of white women, it is a statistical reality that biracial children with a black father are born out of wedlock at a jaw-dropping rate of 92% (97% in a black male-white female pairing), and 82% wind up on government assistance! So the pearl-clutchers can kvetch all they want, and quibble over minutiae, but LePage is correct, and if one of the whitest states in America is seeing its idyllic way of life torn apart by the proliferation of Shifty’s and D-Money’s, we only need to extrapolate as their numbers grow.
Head a few hours south to Massachusetts. Going from the Massachusetts Sentencing Commission’s statistics from September 2016 (the most recent I could find), blacks, despite being 8.5% of the population, account for almost 28% of total crimes. Whites, by contrast, are somewhere in the 73-80% range of the population, depending on who is ultimately classified or self-identifies as “white” on the census, but account for less than 60% of total crimes. Blacks are responsible for 51.3% of murders, 56% of assaults, 29.9% of rapes, and 29.1% of drug abuse offenses. Waterbury, Connecticut, cited by LePage, averages 164 crimes per square mile versus the Connecticut average of 21 (the national median is 31.9), and is in just the eighth percentile of safest cities in America. Blacks in the state of Connecticut are 10-15 times more likely than whites to be arrested for murder. As Edwin S. Rubenstein notes in his 2016 Revision of The Color of Crime, “If New York City were all white, the murder rate would drop by 91 percent, the robbery rate by 81 percent, and the shootings rate by 97 percent.” He continues:
New York City, for example, does not participate in NIBRS but it records the races of arrested offenders, and consistently distinguishes between whites and Hispanics. In 2014, 374 people were arrested for murder. Their races were as follows:
· White: 2.9 percent
· Black: 61.8 percent
· Hispanic: 31.8 percent
· Asian: 2.7 percent
· Other: 0.8 percent
Police take murder very seriously and investigate all cases carefully. Press and judicial system scrutiny are high. Arrest rates for murder therefore track actual crime rates more closely than for any other crime. Murder is probably the crime for which it would be most difficult for police to make “biased” arrests even if they wanted…Given a population that was 32.8 percent white, 22.6 percent black, 28.9 percent Hispanic, and 13.0 percent Asian, a black was 31 times more likely than a white to be arrested for murder, a Hispanic was 12.4 times more likely than a white, and an Asian was twice as likely.
What’s going on with these out-of-control black crime rates? Could it be because black men have low average IQs, high serum testosterone levels, poor impulse control, and high time preference? Why are people so willing to accept evolution in every other aspect of the animal kingdom but not in humanity? Here are a few quick examples: most top professional bodybuilders are black; most strongmen are white. There are precisely zero white NFL cornerbacks, but offensive lines are about 50-50. Why? Could it have anything to do with the unique selection pressures that create a more uneven distribution of the fast-twitch Type IIa and IIb fibers and slow-twitch Type I in blacks, whites, and other races? How about bone density, which is equal between white men and black women? Would a cold environment (and relative lack of natural predators) prioritize raw strength and endurance over explosive, short-term movements? Could environment, scarcity, and other factors then be extended to explain cognitive development? Quarterbacks are disproportionately white, as are centers (81% of NFL centers are white), who are the quarterbacks of the O-Line, making adjustments and calls at the line. These are obviously the most cognitively demanding positions on the field.
If you’re on the Left, all of this information is obviously highly problematic. To note intelligence differences between the races is effectively calling for genocide the way they see it. But that doesn’t make the information untrue. When you control for IQ there is no difference in criminality; there just happens to be an IQ disparity between the races and thus, crime is more concentrated in particular race groups. Half of blacks and one-sixth of whites in the United States have an IQ of 85—and their crime rates are identical. Uh oh! That discounts systemic racism, the central pillar of the race grievance industry. The Al Sharpton types better improve their divination skills in order to reveal our unconscious biases and subliminal intent to discriminate!
The true terror for minorities who subscribe to this worldview, especially blacks, is not that they’ll be confronted by racism, it’s that they won’t, that they’ll find they’ve based their entire lives on the false premise that they’ve been held back by systemic oppression, when in reality it was their own short-comings. As such, the show must go on, and if it means ever-more-elaborate fabrications to prove the existence of (white) racism, then that’s what it will take. Their cognitive dissonance demands it, and the grievance string-pullers’ wallets and purses do, too.
