Falling Skies: Derbyshire’s "Black Tax", The Color of Crime and Hope

‘Oh, white girl bleeds a lot.’ – Unidentified Black person who attacked Shaina Perry on July 4th in Milwaukee

I’ve been watching the TNT television show Falling Skies. Aliens invade earth, wipe out 90 percent of humanity and our military defenses in the process (isn’t that what BRA is trying to do, with Lockheed Martin mandating that the racial diversity of its employees and supplier diversity is a more important objective then building F-22 Raptors that can actually fly?) leaving only scattered bands of humanity capable of mustering any fight.

Our military is doing everything possible to diversify itself out of being an effective defense force (just do a search of this site to see what the Air Force, Marines, Navy, Army, the military academies, US Special Forces, Coast Guard, and Intelligence Gathering agencies are focusing upon as their primary objectives: hint, it has a lot to do with finding Black people suitable to be called valorous) so if there is alien life monitoring our planet and collecting data for an eventual assault, now is the time.

Anyways, back to Falling Skies. The show is set in Boston and follows the Second Massachusetts – a ragtag collection of civilians and surviving soldiers – who try and fight back against the aliens.

The primary message of the show is the need to instill hope among those who survived the initial alien attack and give people the courage to resist, to keep fighting. That no matter how daunting the task seems, how unlikely a positive outcome might be, you can never lose hope.

That’s what this summer is all about. The summer of 2011 has shown that this system of government – what I call Black-Run America (BRA) – can not long endure. It will fall by its own hand, its own devices. The signs are all around us. The US Postal Service is bankrupt, primarily because being an employer of Black people – two of the top 10 jobs that employ the most Black people are with the US Postal Service – and performing a task that the private companies UPS and FedEX have perfected is a recipe for financial failure. Cutting jobs there, like cutting jobs at any Federal agency, will greatly impact Black people and shrink the artificial Black middle class further.

John Derbyshire is a writer I enjoy reading. He is wrong though, as he believes we are doomed. Black-Run America (BRA) is doomed, and it is stories like what is transpiring in Milwaukee that proves this point. Millions of people know something is wrong, that perhaps an ideology that runs counter to the concepts of freedom and liberty rules the land. When you can’t criticize the character of Black people – an ever increasing percentage of Black people – you have no freedom, no liberty. You have absolute despotism.

The summer of 2011 is showing that people across the nation are losing faith in this system, a system that Derbyshire – writing at Takimag – calls, more or less, the Black Tax (we’ll call it the Nigga Tax). In essence, his argument is that in times of economic growth, we could afford the Black Tax. Richard Spencer at Alternative Right noticed the Faustian Pact we made with Black people – and their higher rates of criminality – when it comes to the prison system, and how, this too, will be impacted in times of economic stagnation and depression.

We could afford the Black Tax,  even though it cost us a shot at Mars, but we can no longer afford to pay the Nigga Tax, which cripples the effectiveness of Federal Agencies and, worse, private industries and ultimately innovation.

Derbyshire notes:

As soon as you start to look at the numbers, though, you come up against the race issue. Here are the 2007-08 TANF tables—that’s Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, a federal program—broken up by state and race. So for example, in the state of Maryland, which is 30 percent black, 80 percent of TANF-receiving families are black.

It’s the same with food stamps, which nowadays come under SNAP—that’s the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. The New York Times published a neat interactive graphic on SNAP usage a couple of years ago. The accompanying article tells us:

Nearly 12 percent of Americans receive aid—28 percent of blacks, 15 percent of Latinos and 8 percent of whites….Half of Americans receive food stamps, at least briefly, by the time they turn 20. Among black children, the figure was 90 percent.

There’s a lot of variation hiding in the overall numbers, as the Times was at pains to remind us. Owsley County, Kentucky’s population is 99.22 percent white: Half are on food stamps. Still, it’s plain that nationwide we’re looking at some big racial gaps.

Those gaps may be getting bigger. The Pew Research Center caused a stir the other day by releasing a report on the white/Hispanic/black wealth gaps. They are more dramatic than is commonly realized, and they’re apparently widening.

Leaving Hispanics out of it—I only have one pair of hands—I’m wondering how these white-black gaps and their consequences will carry forward into an age of austerity.

The gaps seem to be awfully intractable. You need to be over fifty to remember Jim Crow; you need to be somewhat older than that to remember a grandparent who was born in slavery. Yet still the needles on a lot of these dials have barely moved.

the scant supply of black math Ph.D.s.

For the less stellar there was plenty of government make-work on offer. This has especially been the case at the federal level. In 2007, the latest year for which I can find figures, black Americans were massively overrepresented in the federal workforce—by more than 800 percent in CSOS (Court Services and Offender Services).

Two entire generations of Americans have now grown up among these favors, preferences, and welfare-support discrepancies for black people. They are rationalized among non-blacks, though not without some resentment, as a “Slavery Tax”—as fair recompense for past injustices.

Following the black riots of the 1960s, non-blacks have seen these concessions as an implicit contract or treaty—as non-black America saying to black America: “We’ll give you this stuff if you promise not to break our windows.”

Yet fifty years on, we are still looking at these colossal, apparently intractable, gaps. And the Slavery Tax is expensive—$31 billion in state and federal expenditures in 2008 just for TANF. If black Americans, at 13 percent of the population, consumed TANF funds at the same rate as white Americans, the TANF bill would be less than $14 billion, a savings of $17 billion. A lot of money: not much to show for it.

If you think these numbers are not worth bothering about—mere billions in a sea of trillions—this is just one modest slice of the Slavery Tax I’m talking about. The massive government make-work programs, with all their salaries and benefits, must be far more, though beyond my ability to compute. And if we are talking about pruning the US Postal Service, with 2010 revenues of $67 billion, why not talk about TANF?

Can the Slavery Tax be maintained in an age of austerity? An age in which, moreover, increasing numbers of non-black Americans will feel justified in asking why, after so many decades of favors, concessions, preferences, and support, so many black Americans are still so desperately far behind?

Yet if the Slavery Tax is curtailed or abolished, what will be the consequences? Will it be taken as an abrogation of that implicit treaty, to be responded to with much breaking of glass?

The Slavery Tax was imposed in the robust USA of the 1960s and 1970s, when our country was a mighty engine of prosperity and our governments were swilling in cash. There was some complaining; but heck, we could afford it. We could afford anything!

We can no longer afford anything, and even Freddie Mae and Fannie Mac -organizations The Washington Post warns us can’t be closed or else minorities, half of the employees of both organizations – will be screwed. 

So be it. The Black Tax can no longer be paid; the Nigga Tax is too great an expense. Judging by the actions of Arizona, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, and, if you remember, California in the 1990s before the courts overturned it, the Illegal Alien Tax is being rejected as well.

We have discussed the Mahogany Mobs rampaging across America, knowing that inevitably, the wrong member of one of these merry bands of looters will be shot and an England-style riot will commence. Over at The American Thinker, John T. Bennett has done some admirable work showing violent crime in America isn’t decreasing, its only getting “less worse.” Compared to 1950s America, we have a criminal problem — read, Black violent crime problem — that the disappearance of the Black Tax will only make more evident.

The skies are falling, but on Black-Run America. Communism in Russia died when the actual Russian people stopped believing in it, stopped pretending. 

Imagine the day private companies no longer have to bow down to the EEOC and can hire people based on merit; imagine the day colleges actually teach, accepting students based on merit and educating them instead of indoctrinating them; imagine the day Lockheed Martin decides actually engineers air crafts, a task they deem more important then performing social engineering experiments; imagine the day the military decides that “diversity must be the causality” in all of this. Imagine.

So I may have gotten a little carried away in the last paragraph, but everyone must have an endgame. Right?

The summer of 2011 has taught me a lot, with the primary lesson being that BRA is inherent unsustainable. Why? For two reasons: The Black Tax is too great a cost (Derb forgot to mention the prison aspect that Spencer did at Al Right) and two, the Mahogany Mobs rampaging across Cleveland, Milwaukee, Chicago, Peoria, Columbia, Boston (Memorial Day Weekend), Charlotte, St. Louis (a town to watch for a potential massive riot from the East-side), Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and plenty of other cities are doing more to erode the concept of “judging by the content of their character and the color of their skin” then any study on Black criminality could accomplish.

Like in the show Falling Skies, it is important to always keep hope alive. The future is unwritten. We are not doomed. We have had an entire establishment and generations of leaders in politics, the military, the academics, Hollywood, government, and in corporate America completely dedicated to the advancement of Black people, to the detriment of the overall health of each of these aforementioned entities. 

Their motto was “Damn the costs. Damn the consequence” (take a look at Detroit for those consequences; It has nothing to do with politics, but what happens when Black people are given the keys to the kingdom).

This will end.

Every time you visit a news site that publishes a story of a Mahogany Mob; leave a comment. Every time you discuss with friends why you don’t live in the “bad” areas of town or the “ghetto,” correct them and say, “you mean the Black area.”

Never waver, nor falter in your belief that BRA is an evil system, that, if continued, will doom us all. Know that the day will come when many law-abiding Black people, themselves the unwanted beneficiary of Black-on-Black crime, Black behavior that endangers their communities (and spills over everywhere else with the Black Undertow) and high rates of illegitimacy, will ask us, “What took you so long to stop being so soft?”

I’ll just respond, “White girl bled a lot. No more.”
