Race relations have always been tricky, because they’ve always involved a degree of coercion. But for most of the recent history of the West, we’ve managed to muddle through. This was until Clown World dawned, and brought acrimony and hatred into every aspect of life, and few more so than race relations.
Ideally, race relations would be a matter of mutual appreciation in the same way that the yang appreciates the yin. In practice, the different natures of the different races creates a number of challenges. Varying biology leads to varying cultural values, and this makes it hard to find a middle ground that everyone can agree on.
In Clown World, race relations are as antagonistic as many would think possible. Things are so bad that it’s now possible to speak openly about resegregation (along the lines of e.g. the New Afrika model). This grim state of affairs is the case all across the Western World.
In the New World, there are natural tensions arising from the fact that the New World is made up of colonies. This means that there is an inherent conflict between the settler government and the political structure of the natives. These tensions are especially bad in places like America, Brazil and South Africa, which had some form of slavery.
In the Old World, there are similar tensions, only from different causes. The race problems in the Old World have been imported over the course of the last 60 years. Germany, France and Britain imported cheap labour from Turkey, North Africa and the West Indies (respectively), and now the offspring of those imports are clashing with the natives.
Race relations in the West probably peaked when Martin Luther King declared that people ought to be judged on the character and not on the colour of their skin. People tried doing that, and it led to a degree of race unity that posed a direct threat to the interests of the ruling class. This had consequences that terrified the ruling class, such as the Occupy Wall Street movement.
The ruling class quickly realised that, in order to secure their position, the various races had to be set at each other’s throats. The story of race relations in Clown World is the story of how this was achieved.
In Singapore, most racial tension was solved by the brilliant Lee Kwan Yew, who intuited early the problems that would arise from pretending all races are the same. Lee Kwan Yew understood that if we say all races are the same, then any economic disparity must have arisen from oppression. Therefore, equalitarianism is a recipe for resentment and discord.
The West, unfortunately, adopted a different approach, and it was partly the decision to do so that led to Clown World.
In Clown World, your skin is your uniform.
If you have white skin, you’re automatically to blame for all the greed of other people with white skin. Wearing white skin marks you as a member of the oppressor class, a beneficiary of slavery and of warmongering. It means that you have “privilege”.
If you have dark skin, you’re automatically a victim. Poor, sweet, innocent, native, innocent of all misdoing. Any crime you commit is the fault of the white man whose economic oppression forced you into desperate circumstances. Even if you rape and murder someone, the white man made you do it.
This state of affairs, quite naturally, appalls two major groups of people: the working-class whites and the non-criminal browns and blacks, neither of who are given due respect. These two groups, who have a great deal in common, are thereby pitted against two other major groups of people: the middle-class whites and the criminal browns and blacks, both of who benefit enormously from racial conflict and strife.
In short, the ruling classes of Clown World understood that racial tensions had to be stoked in order to distract from their misrule. However, it’s not just a simple matter of stoking tensions. It’s mostly about the psychological control that can be seized as a consequence of those tensions.
Although your skin is your uniform in Clown World, this can never be admitted. Not only is racial consciousness higher than ever, but the imperative to deny it is stronger than ever. The slightest error will bring accusations of racism crashing upon you like an ocean wave. The big challenge comes from the fact that the mass media has brought about a renaissance in race-based thinking – mostly through constantly highlighting any and all race issues, and magnifying them into global dramas.
This has created a situation that is ripe for racial tension. Now, even though most people know it’s a bad idea, it’s normal to identify with one’s race instead of the wider community. People can’t help doing so because it’s become normalised thanks to McDiversity. Clown World is when society becomes ever more like a Californian prison, where social bonds are made on the basis of skin colour before any other quality.
These racial tensions have all but destroyed the west, but that is by design. As far back as Aristotle it had been observed that tyrants tend to rule over multicultural societies, because the racial tensions inherent to them created the kind of animosity that made people happy to put evil men in power.
Race relations in Clown World, then, are about as poor as one might expect, given the enormous lack of social coherency and the aggressiveness of the propaganda campaign dividing us all.
