Racial consciousnessorracial awareness is the understanding of the uniqueness of one’s race compared to other races. For example, a racially-conscious person is aware of the physical characteristics, history, culture, traditions of their own race and how those things differ from other races.
Racial consciousness is considered to be good and healthy for Mongoloid, Negroid, and Australoid peoples. BUT, if EuropeanCaucasoids have the temerity to demonstrate similar traits, then pardoxically it’s suggested that Whites harbour a degree of “racist” tendencies!
I find Cornel West, a black professor, complaining of White Supremacy, which he believes our black President needs to remedy. Obama, he says, is “n*ggerized.”
“A n*ggerized black person is a black person who is afraid and scared and intimidated when it comes to putting a spotlight on white supremacy and fighting against white supremacy,” West said.
I would like to explain to Professor West a few things about this dread “supremacy”:
We have White Supremacy, Professor… because, for 2500 years, we Whites, have produced the best minds on the planet, the greatest flourishing of the arts and sciences ever seen, the most complex and organized societies. We have “White Supremacy” — whatever exactly it may be — because we have been the earth’s most successful race. No other has come close. Deal with it.
We put probes on (planet) Mars and invented the thousands of technologies needed to do it. We developed the symphony orchestra, the highest form of musical expression. We invented the airplane, the computer, the Internet… and tennis shoes. Putting it compactly, we invented the modern world. A degree of privilege — however you may conceive it — goes with the territory.
A product of WHITE engineers. When you can do this, come back and talk to me.
Blacks may not have the background to grasp the extent of our achievements. Still, permit me a brief and very incomplete list of things White people have done or invented:
Euclidean geometry. Parabolic geometry. Hyperbolic geometry. Projective geometry. Differential geometry. Calculus: Limits, continuity, differentiation, integration. Physical chemistry. Organic chemistry. Biochemistry. Classical mechanics. The indeterminacy principle. The wave equation. The Parthenon. The Anabasis. Air conditioning. Number theory. Romanesque architecture. Gothic architecture. Information theory. Entropy. Enthalpy. Every symphony ever written. Pierre Auguste Renoir. The twelve-tone scale. The mathematics behind it, twelfth root of two and all that. S-p hybrid bonding orbitals. The Bohr-Sommerfeld atom. The purine-pyrimidine structure of the DNA ladder. Single-sideband radio. All other radio. Dentistry. The internal-combustion engine. Turbojets. Turbofans. Doppler beam-sharpening. Penicillin. Airplanes. Surgery. The mammogram. The Pill. The condom. Polio vaccine. The integrated circuit. The computer. Football. Computational fluid dynamics. Tensors. The Constitution. Euripides, Sophocles, Aristophanes, Aeschylus, Homer, Hesiod. Glass. Rubber. Nylon. Roads. Buildings. Elvis. Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. (OK, that’s nerve gas, and maybe we didn’t really need it.) Silicone. The automobile. Really weird stuff, like clathrates, Buckyballs, and rotaxanes. The Bible. Bug spray. Diffie-Hellman, public-key cryptography, and RSA. Et cetera.
Computers, invented by us. We are not the only ones who can design these monsters. The Japanese, Chinese, Koreans, and Indians can do it, and they have my respect. But–Babbage, Turing, Shockley, Shannon, Boole, von Neumann–weinventedcomputers. People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.
As a race, Cornel, we are happy for you, for anyone, to enjoy the benefits of our civilization, but that is exactly what it is—our civilization. It has become a global civilization because others among the competent—again, Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Koreans—have found it to be in technical matters superior. It came from us. They — I note — do not complain of “White Supremacy” or “White Privilege”. They are too busy making computers and money.
Guilt-ridden White Woman foolishly prostrating before a black man and begging forgiveness for slavery of his people.
Now, Cornel, I have often heard blacks demanding reparations for slavery. All right. I agree. It is only fair. I will pay a half-million dollars to each of my slaves, and free them immediately. I am not sure how many I have, but will try to give you an estimate in even dozens. Further, I believe that all blacks are entitled to a similar amount for every year in which they were slaves.
However, I think you owe us royalties for the use of our civilization, which can be regarded as a sort of software. There should be a licensing fee. After all, every time you use a computer, or a door knob, you are using something invented by us. Every time you sharpen a pencil, or use one, or read or write, you infringe our copyright … so to speak. We have spent millennia coming up with things–literacy, soap, counting–and it is only fair that we receive recompense.
The accounting burden would be excessive if we tried to distribute royalties in too fine a granularity, such as three cents per use of a boom-box, or a Glock (handgun), so we should probably use a bundled approach–so much per year for use of the wheel, refrigerator, and television. The amount could be deducted first from reparations payments and then automatically from EFT cards.
A White man’s kraal. We started building them around the year 1137.
Now, Cornel, it isn’t that we Whites want to be “supreme”. It is just that we haven’t been able to help it. It isn’t our fault that we produced Newton, Archimedes, Einstein, and all those mutants. They are just birth effects … things that happen to even, the best families. You have to play the hand you are dealt. A little sympathy would be appropriate.
These gentlemen, hardly distinguishable from the Julio-Claudians, are probably from Papua-New Guinea. I propose to give them a trial subscription to White Supremacist culture.
An essentially identical culture, differing only in detail. (NASA Mission Control)
What I think, Cornel, is that if you want the advantages of success, you have to succeed. We have. It is chic to say that Whites are now headed for the dust bin of history. Maybe. If so, historians of the future will say, “Damn! That was some really fine dust, wasn’t it?” >Source (For added emphasis, underlined, bolded words and links by ELN Editor)
One of the many weapons our opponents use against us, and also against others of European ancestry, is often termed historical “white guilt”. Those who hate us often point accusingly to our Empire, and to our involvement in the transatlantic slave trade with the implication that we, particularly the British and European Americans, are uniquely guilty of crimes against other races. They believe that — by making us feel guilty about our past — we will be less inclined to object to what is done to us on behalf of our alleged victims.
However, as in so many areas, the truth does not suit their agenda, so they resort to their favoured tactic, and lie with the ease and practiced familiarity of an ageing harlot unzipping her client’s pants.
In our schools and on our television screens, they teach an entirely false and misleading version of history, and sadly it is one which at least two generations of our children now accept as unquestioned fact. Our empire, the greatest the world has ever known is presented as being a cruel and oppressive force which was primarily concerned with plundering other nations and exploiting their peoples.
The story they tell us about the slave trade is also a lie. It’s a lie which they use primarily against Britain and America and it is upon that lie which I will focus in this post. Guilt-ridden WHITE Man and his son – “So Sorry”, “So Sorry” The lies and myths about slavery are told with the same cynicism as those who voted to ban hunting with hounds under the pretence that they were motivated by animal welfare “concerns”. So intent are they in presenting slavery as a White against black crime that they actively seek to play down the fact that an estimated 27 million people are living in various forms of slaveryright now in the 21st Century, more than twice the number transported to America during the total transatlantic slave trade with the effect that less is done than otherwise would be to help those currently in slavery, but are an embarrassment over which a politically correct veil must be drawn.
Our enemies also misrepresent the truth about historical slavery. Transatlantic slavery did not exist in a vacuum — the slave trade was not invented by Americans or Europeans. Slavery had been part of the human condition since the earliest civilisations — look to the Torah, the Old Testament and the Koran, all of which have copious references to slavery written, a millennium or more beforeAmerica was discovered, and whilst the most Europeans lived in tribes and wore woad.
The historical revisionists of the left keep trying to tell us that cradle of civilisation was in North Africa, but they forget to mention that — if it was — it was built by slaves.
Even during the few centuries in which Europe and America were involved in slavery, we were not even the main players. Slavery was being carried out throughout the world, particularly in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The African, Arab and Asianinvolvement in slavery existed long before the transatlantic slave trade, and continued well after abolition, and involved far greater numbers of people.
A wrong is a wrong whoever commits it, and it is inequitable, and arguably racist, to hold one group more accountable than another on the grounds of pigmentation. I am not stating these facts in order to excuse the transatlantic slave trade, but merely to set it in context and in perspective. You can not single out one or two nations for unique condemnation, when, in truth they merely, and briefly, got involved in what almost everyone else was doing, and which other nations had been doing for thousands of years.
This is particularly inequitable given that in 1807, Britain was one of the first nations on planet earth to abolish the slave trade and then through her Empire brought about the abolition of slavery across a quarter (25%) of the earth’s surface a mere 26 years later. (a stunning achievement given that the British Empire included many lands where slavery had been a fact of life for thousands of years, and that this huge task was achieved in an age before aeroplanes, helicopters and satellite communications.)
Furthermore, throughout most of the 19th Century the Royal Navy was actively involved in combating the slave trade as perpetrated by other nations, so we enforced abolition well beyond our own dominions.
Indeed, British and other European colonialism itself, far from oppressing our subject nations, played a pivotal role in freeing them from the threat of being captured by Arab slavers, castrated (unlike in America, there are few descendants of those enslaved by Islam) and shipped to Arabia to be worked to death.
If you look to the history of Eastern Africa in the 19th Century, Britain was the major force in ending the Arab slave trade from places like Uganda, Northern Kenya and Zanzibar. We are repeatedly reminded of the slave caves around the coast of Western Africa used by transatlantic slave traders, however there are similar caves on the east of Africa from whence the cargo travelled north and east over far more centuries, and in far greater numbers.
Another point supporting the fact that European colonialism brought about the end of slavery is that the only African country where it was still legal to own slaves well into the 1920’s was Ethiopia, one of the only African nations which was never colonised and even then it was only abolished in order to gain Ethiopia access to the League of Nations.
On the other side of the Atlantic, also in 1807, the US Congress banned the importation of slaves, and 54 years later, well over half a million young, White, Americans died in a (Civil) war fought partly in order to free the slaves. I am aware of no similar gesture on the part of those Arab, Asian and African states which had owned and traded in slaves for millennia before Britain’scomparatively brief, three hundred year involvement, including those, such as Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Yemen, Oman and Mauritania, which didn’t get around to banning slavery until 100 years after the American Civil war (and where some would say forms of slavery continue to this day) or in Mauritania which only imposed a ban last year — or Sudan where slavery allegedly still exists.
How odd that we don’t hear calls for reparations from those countries where slaves were openly owned within living memory. Of course, silly me, they are notWhite Europeannations, and can’t be held responsible for what they do.
That said, I personally see no justification in holding current generations of Arabs or Africans responsible for the acts of earlier generations (even though those were quite recent generations). Guilt dies with the guilty, and inherited or racial guilt is an abstract and unsupportable concept, which is, at its heart racist. However, it is a guilt which we in Europe and North America are expected to carry and acknowledge, despite the fact that the guilt of our forefathers is so much less than the guilt of others, and that we have done so much more than others to right a universal wrong.
The staggeringly important fact about the slave trade is not that Britain and America joined in for a while, it is we alone brought it to an end.
Instead of suffering White-guilt over slavery — by comparison with many other nations — we British and our U.S. cousins have a great deal to be proud of. >Source

If you know how bad the situation is and don’t feel the need to subject yourself to any more of my patented Barnhardt Phillipic and Funeral Dirge for Civilization, take your leave now, because I honestly think that this is the the saddest, most profoundly depressing post I have yet written. And I’ve written a few. A few thousand.
The topic is the US Dollar, and currency in general. The Federal Reserve has been willfully and systematically debasing the US dollar for a century by claiming that 2% inflation is the benchmark of a healthy economy. Since the universities and media have been overrun by Marxists, there is hardly anyone alive who: A.) is in possession of the capacity to independently think and reason their way through such a question, and B.) anyone who cares in the first place.
In addition to the slow grinding debasement by the Fed, the Marxists have finally fully usurped and overthrown the government of the United States, and thus have now executed the coup de grace: wild, flagrant money “printing”, and by “printing”, please understand that we are not talking about the fabrication of paper bills. We are talking about computerized entries into the Federal Reserve’s ledger.
The Fed literally types in an addition of x billion or y trillion dollars into its balance sheet – creating dollars out of thin air that exist as zeroes and ones on a computer server – and then use those new dollars to purchase US Treasury bonds. In this way, the Obama regime and its puppetmasters have debased the US dollar by roughly one half the total GDP in less than four years. This iteration of both the United States and the US Dollar are over. There is no way to walk back the damage that the Obama regime has done. They have accomplished their mission, no matter what happens from this day forward.
After reading and reviewing my texts on monetary theory from Mises, Hayek, Friedman and contemporary economists including Denninger, I have come to a profound realization about money and the fiat vs commodity money (i.e. gold-backed currency) debate – and it bodes very, very poorly for us.
First, a few preliminary points.
1. Going to a gold standard will solve nothing. This is not to say that I don’t think that gold and silver are good wealth storage vehicles in this situation. To the contrary, I think they are excellent for these times. BUT, simply reverting to the gold standard, in and of itself, will not turn us around. We will, at some point, be FORCED to revert to the primordial commodity currency paradigm simply because our government and society will collapse, and thus our currency with it. If and when our culture rebuilds itself, if we remain as we are, the exact same problems that have arisen under the fiat money system will emerge again, even under a gold-backed currency.
So why has civilization — up until just within the last few decades — operated on commodity money systems, and why is it plausible to think that any fiat currency could ever have any legitimacy? The reason why civilization has used commodity money, namely gold and silver, up until just recently is because up until just recently, there was no way to instantly verify money held on deposit, or the existence of a line of credit.
With computers and the internet, such instant checks are as common as breathing, blinking and walking. We don’t even think about it anymore. We go to the sandwich shop, get our sandwich, and in less than three seconds, the vendor has confirmed that we have funds, and then transferred those funds into his account. In the centuries and millennia past, people would load chests filled with gold coinage and jewels onto sailing ships and set out for distant lands. Why did they take their gold and jewels with them and risk losing that money to shipwreck or piracy? Because they had to take it with them. The only way to confirm your wealth to others was to physically possess it.
Physical possession and spot exchange was also the only way to execute mercantile transactions. If we lose telecommunications and computing ability due to the successful detonation of an Electromagnetic Pulse weapon, or simply due to the total breakdown of society and the ability to maintain and power such systems, then indeed, this argument will become moot. BUT, so long as there is near-instant data transmission, commodity money will be theoretically optional (*with a qualifier to be addressed later in Part 3).
While we are looking at history, it bears mentioning that metals-backed currencies have not prevented other economic calamities. Just in the United States, the Great Depression of the 1930’s and the post-Civil War depression of 1873-1879, now called the Long Depression, which was actually caused by the manipulation of silver demand by the German Empire, were not magically prevented by metals-backed currency. Returning to a gold standard would not prevent recessions from happening. In fact, recessions are a necessary fact of economies, and serve to deflate bubbles and restore equilibrium. The only people who promise to eliminate economic recessions are Marxists, and that is because Marxists are liars.
Just as all respiring beings on earth must both inhale and exhale, so to must economies. A person who perpetually inhaled would eventually burst their lungs and die. Conversely, a person who could only exhale would asphyxiate and die. But both actions, in a balanced, moderate cycle, are the definition of health. It is the same with economies: periods of expansion followed by a healthy, normal contraction that deflated any bubbles and restored equilibrium, thus setting up the next expansion phase.
2. Metals-backed currencies can be corrupted, too. There are two ways to corrupt a metals-backed currency, and it has happened many, many times throughout history. The first means pertains to coinage, and is to corrupt the metal itself with cheaper metals, such as zinc. The Roman denarius was debased from 4.5 grams of pure silver to less than one tenth of a gram of silver. Hyperinflation was the inevitable result, and the currency had to eventually be totally replaced.
The second means — which pertains to paper and electronic currency — is for the government to lie about the reserve quantity. This could either be done by explicitly lying about the number of ounces in storage, OR could be done by clandestinely issuing dollars to cronies of the oligarchy, which were NOT actually backed by any metal, and thus would be a de facto lie as to the supply. Since the people would be unable to demand a daily audit and reconciliation, the ability to police and reconcile the supply of metal and dollars would be impossible, and exactly the same things that are going on today, namely government looting of the Treasury and debasement of the currency, would continue apace. >continue to Parts 2 and 3.
