Talking About Ethnic Groups Versus Talking About Individuals

My conversation with Vox at Fisheaters continued today.

When it comes to race talk, it is important to not compare apples to oranges.

I like the idea of a Catholic utopia. Sure, it's a fine idea that one day there would be a truly universal stretch of real estate where people could live, be Catholic, and not care about each other's ethnicity. Heck, there was even a thread on Fisheaters where I advocated the creation of a Catholic ghetto, but that thread of conversation didn't go on for very long.

Now, when I talk about the reality of racial politics and sociology--when I am looking at collections of people and playing The Anthropologist--that does not mean that I'm saying blacks or other races are stupid, and in every single person's life, they need to go out of their way and treat individual black people or whoever like a piece of crap. I'm not saying, "Go out and kick a brother."

Of course, on individual levels, be polite and respectful to others, no matter what ethnicity. That goes without saying. And people often can't get past that part in a discussion like this.

But when you talk about large numbers of people, you are talking about a whole other animal right there.  You are talking about a collective.  And in terms of such conversations, I refuse to be silenced from talking about the matter. Most SWPL liberal whites fear to tread into this kind of discussion. But frankly, I'm tired of it.

Vox, today you implied that talking about race will turn people away from my message. But I have found that talking about race actually attracts people's attention, because a lot of whites in this country as well as Europe are tired of being silent about this matter. If you look at our recent threads about Europe, you see handfuls of marches for Nationalism. In fact, if you take a look at where Dr. David Duke's latest speaking engagements have been, you will see that he has done a lot of talks over in Europe, and not America.

People are becoming eager to talk about race and how bad the Diversity Experiment has ruined their culture. Multiculturalism is just more of the same Marxism that has been shoved down our throats for the entirety of the 20th Century.

And even yesterday's post, which included much of what I said about segregation, earned a higher visitor stats than the average blog post.

I believe that the only people I turn off when mentioning race in my first sentence are the people who are afraid to talk about it. And ultimately, when talking about race, why would I want to converse with folks who are afraid to talk about it? I just don't think such a conversation would go anywhere.

You presented an article about liberal academia that states:  "[G]roupthink causes some questions not to be asked, and some answers not to be overly scrutinized" (hello Echo Chamber).

Fortunately, we are on the internet, and we are not in liberal academia. Here, we can talk about such things, and have those fabled "dialogues about race" that Attorney General Eric Holder says we ought to have.

"People feel uncomfortable talking about racial issues out of fear that if they express things, they will be characterized in a way that's not fair. I think that there is still a need for a dialogue about things racial that we've not engaged in."
Attorney General Eric Holder
