The USA - From Slaves to Black & Black Hebrew Israelites

Reader comment on item: Migration, Islam, and Western Atonement

Submitted by Robert (United States), Nov 11, 2022 at 18:55

Another excellent interview by Dr. Daniel Pipes. However, I wish to add some comments on the migrant situation of the United States.

We too have an "atonement" issue. But it involves a different population cohort, namely the mostly descendants of West African sub-Sahara population that has regressed from seeing themselves as African American to seeing themselves as Black (that makes me think of myself as White, rather than Pink, which would be closer to the visual truth). As a consequence of this regression the history of the USA is one of primarily Slavery and the subsequent Racism; our traditional inheritance of the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Rule of Law is trivialized as partly the work of the (White) Founding Fathers among whom were Slave Owners. It is this status of being a Victim which foremost in the training of "Blacks" under the rubric of Black Studies (often, not even African American Studies, and far less African Studies). According, the Other becomes White (or pejoratively Whitey). That leaves room for Brown people who are neither blond or blue-eye; that's were Arabs, Pakistanis, and other Muslims conveniently find themselves a niche.

But the dominant political struggle is not with Muslims, but rather with the so-called "Black" that sees itself as a Victim of Slavery and Racism for which the Democrats (the Party), especially on the Left, is willing Atonement. And this puts the Jew, the eternal scapegoat (Antisemitism) in the middle; to side with the Conservative Republicans is to follow the plans pronounced in the "Protocols of Zion"; and to side with the liberal Democrats is just not to do enough - since the Jews where the Slavers that brought them here, as expounded by the leader of the (Black) Nation of Islam, Mr. Farrakhan, in his 3-volume tomes concerning the "Secret Relationship between Blacks and Jews" (yes, another Conspiracy Theory).
