Douglas Wilson huffs that when he grew up, blacks had separate drinking fountains and this great indignity certainly had to change; indeed, so bad were those times that getting a black president (just, not this one) would be a salutary part of our repentance and redemption.
I keep thinking about those drinking fountains. Would I demonstrate and protest if cities built special drinking fountains for me? Many people evidently find me persona non grata. There is a non-profit Board that does not want to associate with me, because my language is offensive. (Most unforgivable, evidently, was my use of the term, “jive-ass dude” in a comment I once wrote.) Suppose the whole country was filled with such indignation, and demanded that special “Tim Harris drinking fountains,” separate but equal, everywhere be constructed.
Well… if you insist. I’ll take the special bathrooms too, if you please.
I suppose that, amongst the jews and other communists that led the 1960’s Revolution in America, leading to the Abolition of Separate Drinking Fountains and Other Indignities, a few probably had some genuine and human thoughts mixed in with their generally destructive motivation. Those thoughts would probably be something like this: even though at one level, it is an advantage to everyone to have more drinking fountains and bathrooms built than otherwise would be — everyone gets to the head of the line to the head sooner as a result — yet, by distinguishing access to them by class of person, one class of person will doubtless be encouraged to treat the other unjustly. This encouragement would follow from the very fact of making a class distinction per se.
A priori, which class is going to treat which unjustly? The critic is going to have to expand the analysis by pointing out, for example, that one class (Anglo-Saxons) held all the money and political power while the other (the Negroes) did not, and given that asymmetry, it would be the Whites feeling encouraged by separate drinking fountains to treat Blacks unjustly, not vice versa. At least, I have never heard a Civil Rights advocate go on indignantly about what an injustice to Whites the drinking fountains were. But then, what if there was no evidence of that political power being used unjustly? What if there was no discrimination in the granting of business licenses? what if a free school system was provided of such a quality as has yet to be built by their kinsmen in Africa to this day? what if free personal interchange was permitted in the public square, moderated only by the principle of free association? Absent specific evidence, the injustice of the situation needs to be qualified by more and more rarified notions.
The pro-integration Aryan with a daughter must logically either (a) be willfully ignorant of the crime situation that has emerged all around him, which since Integration, has destroyed every American city except perhaps Boston (which was only rescued by the very unpolitically-correct mics and dagos, at the street level — men who valued the chastity and lives of their daughters, sisters, and nieces more than some abstract social theory of internationalism), or (b) thinks that a society in which his daughter can be plucked off the street, raped, mutilated, tortured for several days, then either beaten to death or drowned in a bathtub full of lye, chopped up, and thrown into a trash bag, only to have that same society turn its eyes aside, ignore it, and pretend it never happened, is well worth it provided Negroes can drink from the same drinking fountains as whites.
Actually, there is a third option: move ever farther from the city, while pretending even to one’s own inner voice to be color-blind. We should pretend that 35,000 white women are not raped by Negroes every year, rather than think even for a moment that Integration was not all it was cracked up to be.
I am going to begin documenting the actual facts of the situation, for the sake of the culpably-ignorant white men that seem to be everywhere. Secular men read the fleeting headline in the local paper, before the story is permanently buried, and try to forget, and turn back to their ESPN. Professed Christian men like my persecutor roll their eyes heavenward and say, “it is the judgment of God.”
True: it is the judgment of God on pansies that stand by passively while their nation is destroyed all around them.
But we can all drink from the same drinking fountain! That is surely progress! Rather 35,000 additional rapes per year than not have that!
