Anonymous American, American Renaissance, June 19, 2022
This story is one of hundreds Colin Flaherty planned to publish in a book before his death. American Renaissance will post one a week.
I’m a 60-year-old conservative black man and I just got off the phone with my liberal 70-year-old brother. Our conversation was about race, as it often is. My brother insists that the problems of the black race are the result of structure, while I maintain that it’s largely culture. He says that slavery is to blame for the state of black America and the way blacks behave. I tell him that’s nonsense. Though there were many structural barriers that limited black upward mobility for many years, those unfair obstacles have all been eliminated in the last half-century, and today, the sky’s the limit for us if we want to progress. There are zero structural impediments to our advancement. I told him that we blacks need to adopt conservative principles such as valuing education, marrying before having children, shunning degenerate behavior, respecting authority, etc. These values would propel the black race forward if we practiced them, but like my older brother, so many blacks claim America is a racist country that will never let us succeed. Unfortunately, many blacks think this way, believing that the white man has a diabolical plan to destroy us.
According to their twisted logic, the white man makes blacks sucker punch 90-year-old women, gang rape a 13-year-old girls, rob and murder elderly veterans, rob strangers, commit arson, shoot over 100 people in Chicago over the course of a weekend, etc. They maintain the white man set up Bill Cosby, O.J. Simpson, and many other blacks. I also told my brother, among other things, that it’s a disgrace that in this day and age many of us still can’t speak proper English. Of course, he insists that’s also because of the white man!
