Massie: Blacks Were Better Off as Slaves

Mychal Massie is one of a small group of incredibly far right black writers and talk show hosts (along with Erik Rush, Jesse Lee Peterson, E.W. Jackson and a few others) who routinely say things that leave my jaw agape. His latest screed at the Worldnetdaily is simply mind-numbing, as he says that black Americans are worse off today than they were under slavery.

I argue there is no greater form of racism and bigotry than race-based “affirmative action.” It is promulgated by self-serving neo-Leninist liberals who believe themselves superior and who look upon blacks as being inferior. Their bigotry implies that blacks cannot succeed or accomplish anything worthwhile in life without their help.

Many blacks have ignorantly embraced race-based affirmative action as justified punishment of white people, whom they view as their oppressors. But what these same blacks are blind to is what race-based affirmative action has reduced them to.

Neo-Leninist liberals in their bigoted pomposity have orchestrated a pogrom of such magnitude as to destroy the sense of purpose and sense of true self-worth in the majority of blacks today. Neo-Leninists have successfully blinded many blacks to the importance of their embracing modernity.

Before neo-Leninist liberals decided to foment despair, discord and animosity for the purpose of prostituting immiseration and self-defeatism, blacks not only embraced modernity but they relentlessly pursued it.

At the signing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, 87 percent of black homes were married, two-parent homes, and 40 percent of blacks were business owners. But 50 years after the signing of the Civil Rights Act, 49 years after the introduction of the Great Society initiatives and 46 years after the introduction of race-based affirmative action, blacks disproportionately represent practically every undesirable category.

Unlike before bigoted neo-Leninist liberals convinced blacks that they couldn’t make it without their help, blacks today have the highest percentage of out-of-wedlock births and the highest percentage of abortions. They have the highest percentage of single-parent homes and the highest percentage of children being raised by a family member other than their biological parents. Blacks comprise the highest percentage of incarcerants, the highest percentage of high school dropouts, the highest percentage of college dropouts, the highest percentage living in poverty and the highest percentage of unemployed…

But don’t tell blacks that, because the majority are too blind, dumb and ignorant to understand this. There was a time blacks embraced being Americans and the virtues of same; but that mindset has ultimately taken a backseat to the shrill invidious voices of those who preach the vitriolic heterodoxies of Marxism.

Blacks are plied and inculcated with the idea that the greatest contributor to their plight is the absence of economic freedom for them. But that, too, is an Erebusic lie from the pit of hell, or more accurately stated, it emanates from the mouths of neo-Leninist liberals…

In the final analysis, blacks are worse off today, morally and spiritually, than at any other time in their history in America. Over the past 50 years, as other Americans have progressed, blacks as an aggregate have regressed in a horrific way.

Really? Worse than slavery? Worse than Jim Crow and lynchings? Really? Maybe you should volunteer to be the first one to go back to slavery, then you can tell all those people you’re dismissing as blind and dumb how much happier they would be in that situation.

    Sounds a lot like Alan Keyes, quick with the thesaurus, but sadly doesn’t seem to understand what any of the words mean, starting with “racism”, “bigotry”, “slavery” and “affirmative action”.

    “Many blacks have ignorantly embraced race-based affirmative action as justified punishment of white people, whom they view as their oppressors.”

    I’ve seen that claim that affirmative action punishes whites made by whites, but I don’t think I have ever seen any non white claim affirmative action is justified revenge against whites.

    Is he lying, does he assume that because he thinks somehow it is designed to pnish whites, everyone else must agree with him, or does he just not care?

    I assumed as a black man, he would be more aware of the continuing racism in this country. But I guess he relies on denial and telling himself that he is not like “those other blacks” who are not doing well. He clearly has never understood what affirmative action is about. Or he is pretending he doesn’t understand.

    Another thing that’s happened between now and 1964? The “War on Drugs,” which has disproportionately impacted minority communities, jailing large percentages of young men, leaving them less able to marry and support the children they do have. We’ve also seen the “pro-life” movement, which has worked damn hard to ensure children in this country have no clue how their reproductive systems work and little, if any, access to the means to avoid unwanted pregnancies. But facts don’t matter in the right-wing echo chamber.

    [Affirmative action] is promulgated by self-serving neo-Leninist liberals who believe themselves superior and who look upon blacks as being inferior.

    Um, but if we dismiss the notion that there is anything in society holding blacks down for affirmative action to fix (ie racism and ancillary effects of slavery and Jim Crow), then what else are we left with but the conclusion that blacks are indeed inferior?

    Well, yeah, I suppose that it might be possible for black Americans to improve their situation without affirmative action. But I kind of think it’s decent of them that they aren’t rising up and murdering all the white people.

    To be fair, segregation did open up certain entrepreneurial opportunities to blacks that desegregation removed (segregated hotels and motels and eating places, as well as doctor’s offices and schools and a whole class of businesses that were located in isolated (by tradition if not law) n****rtowns in big cities, whose residents were not particularly welcomed in businesses outside those areas. But many small local businesses owned by whites have also suffered in the wake of the rise of Walmarts and other corporate retailers.

    And transparently racially biased incarceration, the decline of low skill jobs for men (relative to women) and the poor pay of such jobs, have wreaked havoc on marriage rates among both low-skilled whites and blacks. Incarceration also keeps them from voting. The enslavement of black men (primarily) in the South (without actually calling it slavery) was accomplished by incarceration and chain-gang labor during segregation and is used today to disenfranchise both poor blacks and poor whites in the South.

    I will check the Federal jobs website tonight, but I believe (no joke) that you get +5 points for declaring minority status, but +10 points for declaring yourself a veteran.

    Massie, unsurprisingly, has very little facts to back up his claims. Yes, blacks as a demographic group have the highest-rate of unemployment (currently hovering around 11%, compared with the national average of 6%), but according to most federal statistics, it’s always been this way. Blacks have always had a harder time finding jobs than whites, for various reasons (hiring discrimination, economic displacement in the inner cities, ect.) Even during the peak of the most recent economic boom around 1999-2000, the black unemployment rate was averaging 7.5%, compared with a national average of 4%.

    As for the highest percentage living in poverty, this is also true. However, it was like that long before the Civil Rights Act. Hell, the black poverty rate was over 45% in 1964, compared with roughly 27% in 2013). The lowest black poverty rate on record was 22%, recorded in 2000, at the end of the above mentioned 90’s economic boom. That’s still pretty damn high. But it’s far below the levels seen during the 60s. To say that blacks today are the worst off they’ve been in history is pretty damn outrageous.

    Massie sounds like a complete psycho, which is typical for a wingnut. Every wingnut seems to have an obsessive desire to blame the problems that they themselves created on liberals. It’s an obsession for right-wingers because otherwise they’d have to take a good long look at themselves and their own failures as decent people.

    I wonder where that data of “87 percent” in married households and “40 percent” were small business owners before the Civil Rights Act came from. Anybody know? I’d have just assumed he was blowing smoke.

    Of course black small businesses thrived under Jim Crow /sarcasm

  • Rick Pikul

    If I were to make a guess about the 40% business owners figure, it probably includes all those who were ‘independent contractors’ because they did things like take in laundry or clean homes without working for a formal agency.

  • smrnda

    The bashing of affirmative action seems to assume that IF Black people excelled, they would advance.

    The truth is we need affirmative action because even when Black people excel, they get ignored by the white people in charge of things like hiring and such, and that education for Black people is aggressively sabotaged.

    “pogrom” — you keep using that word… Definition from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

    “Pogrom: the organized killing of many helpless people usually because of their race or religion.”

    Massie does evince a monumentally formidable diversity of confabulation— I mean, he has a great vocabulary. But that, too, is an Erebusic lie from the pit of hell… Except that “Erebusic” is not in any dictionary I can find. A 2008 analysis of Mychal Massie’s vocabulary.

  • freehand

    From Wikipedia: In Greek mythology, Erebus /ˈɛrəbəs/, also Erebos (Greek: Ἔρεβος, “deep darkness, shadow”),[1] was often conceived as a primordial deity, representing the personification of darkness

    What might he say next? I’m guessing the likes of “I’m glad that our masters whipped us until we bled. They knew how to make us work, and we were all better for that.” and “I’m glad that our masters seduced and raped the female ones of us, so we could have some of their superior genes in our genomes.” and “I’m glad that our masters showed their superior appreciation of property rights by treating us like farm animals. None of that socialist bullshit about equal rights.”
