Green Week Starts Tomorrow; Desmond Tutu wants a ‘White Tax’ in South Africa

Quick note: Captain America and Whiteness is about to be available for purchase (in book form) on Amazon. It wasn’t ready for the film, but it is incredibly topical. John Ridley at NPR said Hollywood Superheroes are losing the fight for diversity; in Captain America and Whiteness, you’ll find out why that is a great thing.

Plus, you’ll get to read an essay on why Frank Castle/The Punisher is the perfect Captain America for the 21st Century. All in all, it was a fun book to write and I’m just sorry it wasn’t ready by the 22nd of July (when Captain America: The First Avenger came out). If you’re interested, make a donation to the Paypal link in the left-hand corner for $50 or more and I’ll send you signed copies of the book and Hollywood in Blackface.

For $75 or more, I’ll send all three books (SBPDL: Year One as well) to you signed. I’m working  hard on formatting and editing SBPDL Year Two: 365Black Days of Judging by Content of Character and will have it ready by September 25.

Starting tomorrow, Green Week at SBPDL begins. It’s not often you’ll read the words sustainability, recycling, birth control, environmentalism, a love of nature, and an overzealous desire to combat “climate change” (we have different take on what that means; stay tuned) with Black people, but this entire week at SBPDL you’ll learn about this and much more as we Go Green.

But for now, we must quote a story from South Africa that probably offers a precursor for a future tax in America, if Black-Run America (BRA) continues unabated. Remembering that South Africa already has hyper-Affirmative Action in the Black Economic Empowerment (BEE), the universally loved Desmond Tutu has stated a “white tax” needs to passed immediately. That this clown – like the terrorist Mandela – is touted as some hero and a world-class theologian by BRA’s sycophants tells me more about their character then his:

Johannesburg – Calls made by Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu for white South African’s to be taxed were racist and thoughtless, the Freedom Front Plus said on Saturday.

“It borders on the emotional statements of [ANC Youth League president] Julius Malema and does not contribute to the debate on how to address the country’s economic problems properly,” FF Plus spokesperson Anton Alberts said.

Tutu, who spoke at a book launch at the University of Stellenbosch in Cape Town on Thursday evening, said the damage apartheid caused was impossible to escape.

He said white citizens needed to accept the obvious: “You all benefited from apartheid.”

“Your children could go to good schools. You lived in smart neighbourhoods. Yet so many of my fellow white citizens become upset when you mention this. Why? Some are crippled by shame and guilt and respond with self-justification or indifference.

“Both attitudes make that we are less than we can be.”

The Cape Argus spoke to Tutu after the speech, where he expanded on his wealth tax call.

“There were many in the white community who were ready for this [at the time of the TRC process].

“It could be quite piffling, maybe 1% of their stock exchange holdings. It’s nothing. But it could have helped… maybe building new homes, and that would have been an extraordinary symbol of their readiness.”

Asked whether he was again calling for a “wealth tax”, Tutu said: “That’s what I’m saying.”

He then laughed: “What were you doing in there [the conference centre]? Were you listening?”

Tutu said he hoped whites themselves would “agitate” for it to be imposed upon them.

However Alberts said in a statement it was improper to single out white people as they have contributed disproportionately more to the fiscus than any other group for the past 17 years.

“The request for introspection and a greater moral contribution should instead be addressed to the ANC government itself.”

Tutu’s race argument was so much more immoral if taking into account the fact that there were already more than 600 000 poor whites, he said.

“Taxes levied on white people will merely be damaging social cohesion and will not contribute anything toward a sustainable economy.”

Is there a study that shows what percentage of taxes white South Africans pay, compared to Black South Africans? For that matter, what percent of white Americans pay taxes compared to Black Americans?

If America were a sane country, we would offer asylum to all white South Africans and relocate them to Detroit, Birmingham, Memphis, Milwaukee and other major cities in need of hard working, innovative and entrepreneurial (drug dealing doesn’t count) citizens capable of creating, nurturing, and maintaining an economy. In one year, Detroit would be a world class city again, with thriving schools, a bustling economy and people clamoring to move there. Dilapidated houses would be rebuilt; neglected neighborhoods cleaned up; and graffiti removed, the reminder of the former inhabitants of the city washed away with primer and a fresh coat of paint. 

As if it happens, America is an insane country that grants asylum to Somalians and other Africans from war torn nations and Detroit’s leaders have to pay people to move there, as they lack everything – save drug dealers – mentioned in the above paragraph.

Such is life when a concept like BRA governs us all; we already have a “white tax” here that pays for it too!
