Refusing to Save Africans

Refusing to Save Africans
By BOB HERBERT
Giving the back of his hand to the suffering of millions, a key Bush administration official is opposing any extensive use of the life-extending anti-AIDS drugs in Africa, insisting that the health care infrastructure is too primitive and that Africans, in most cases, are incapable of following the regimen.
As head of the U.S. Agency for International Development, Andrew Natsios is the administration’s point man on foreign aid. In an interview with The Boston Globe, he said the money raised by a new global fund to fight AIDS should be used almost entirely for prevention services, not for the antiretroviral drugs that have been so successful in extending the lives of people infected with H.I.V.
Painting with a very broad brush, Mr. Natsios said attempting to get the drugs to Africans any time soon would not be worth the effort because of the difficulties posed by a lack of roads, shortages of doctors and hospitals, wars and other problems.
According to Mr. Natsios, the problems extend to the Africans themselves. Many Africans, he told The Globe, “don’t know what Western time is. You have to take these (AIDS) drugs a certain number of hours each day, or they don’t work. Many people in Africa have never seen a clock or a watch their entire lives. And if you say, one o’clock in the afternoon, they do not know what you are talking about. They know morning, they know noon, they know evening, they know the darkness at night.”
This view of Africans as so ignorant they can’t master the concept of taking their medicine on time has become a touchstone of the Bush administration. Back in April, The Times’s Joseph Kahn reported on concerns voiced by an unnamed senior Treasury Department official: “He said Africans lacked a requisite `concept of time,’ implying that they would not benefit from drugs that must be administered on tight time schedules.”
Africans may be dying by the millions from AIDS, but the brutal stereotyping of the Dark Continent lives on, encouraged by U.S. government officials who should know better.
Mr. Natsios’s primary response to the epidemic that is roaring like a fireball across southern Africa is to just say no. “Just keep talking about prevention,” he told The Globe. “That is the strategy we’re using — even though I’ll be beaten up and get bruises all over me from the fights on the subject.”
Mr. Natsios may not realize it, but just talking about prevention has failed. In sub-Saharan Africa, more than 25 million people are infected with H.I.V., and more than 17 million have already died. In South Africa, which is being brought to its knees by this epidemic, the rate of infection for all people 15 to 45 years old has nearly reached 20 percent.
The United States, a rich and healthy nation, cannot close its eyes to suffering on such a colossal scale. There is medication available to ease the suffering and its cost is coming down. Now the steps must be taken to get the medicine to the people in need.
I spoke with Mr. Natsios last Thursday. He conceded that in South Africa and the country with the worst outbreak of AIDS in the world, Botswana, the health care infrastructure is, in fact, pretty good.
As for the difficulty Africans or anyone else might have following the daily antiretroviral regimen, now might be a good time to burst a widely held misconception. Antiretroviral therapy does not always require patients to take dozens of pills a day.
“Our patients take two pills in the morning and two pills in the evening. That’s it,” said Toby Kasper, an official with Doctors Without Borders, which recently established an antiretroviral therapy program for patients in a village in South Africa.
The trend in drug therapies — in the U.S. and elsewhere — is toward newer, more consolidated regimens that are easier to follow.
Mr. Natsios reluctantly acknowledged that some limited use of antiretroviral treatment in Africa may be O.K., and he said he didn’t mean to offend anyone with his comments about African concepts of time.
The truth is that both prevention and drug therapy are desperately needed in Africa.
No one believes antiretrovirals can be effectively administered in countries that are at war, or in areas devoid of doctors and hospitals or clinics. But there is a role for antiretroviral therapy to play in the catastrophe in sub-Saharan Africa. And it would be to the everlasting shame of the United States if its officials proved to be a barrier to that kind of life- saving treatment.

Report Blacks Likely to Be Special-ED Students

Report: Blacks Likely To Be Special-Ed Students
Baltimore (AP) — A new report prompted by complaints by the NAACP reveals a big disparity in the way minority and white children are educated in the nation’s public schools.
It finds that black students are nearly three times as likely as whites to be labeled “mentally retarded” and in need of special education services. The research suggests kids in special ed are subject to less demanding schoolwork, more restrictive classrooms and isolation from their peers.
The report out today is a compilation of 14 studies being released by The Civil Rights Project at Harvard University.
Co-author Daniel Losen says complaints by the Baltimore-based NAACP that school systems were placing too many black students in special ed classes and too few in gifted classes prompted the studies.

School Race Gap Targeted

School Race Gap Targeted
St. Paul meeting to zero in on black kids’ achievement
PAUL TOSTO STAFF WRITER
The St. Paul school board meets tonight to discuss African-American student achievement. It may be the board’s most important meeting this year, or it may end up simply revisiting a set of maddening statistics familiar here, in Minneapolis and across the country.
Fifteen years of district test data show few signs that the gap between white and black students has closed. Strategies and blue-ribbon commissions have come and gone along with superintendents, school boards and students. Yet achievement patterns remain frustratingly consistent.
In the spring MAT7 exams, half the district’s black students fell into the lowest performance category, which indicates students who are one or more grades behind. Only 17 percent of whites scored in that category (44 percent for Asian-Americans; 41 percent for American Indians and Latinos). The national average was 23 percent.
Those numbers have barely changed in the seven years since MAT7 testing began. In 1993, 56 percent of black children and 23 percent of white children were in the lowest category.
In the decade before the state exams, St. Paul used its own high-stakes reading and math tests. Slightly more than half the district’s black ninth-graders passed the reading competency test in 1987, compared with more than 80 percent of whites. Nine years later, the gap hadn’t budged.
Different tests, different eras, different kids. Yet the achievement gap from 1987 — about a 30-percentage-point difference in the passing rates between black and white — is nearly identical to February’s state basic skills exams, which showed 76 percent of white St. Paul eighth-graders passed the Minnesota basic skills reading exam vs. 40 percent of African-American eighth-graders.
There is no one answer to the black-white gap. There isn’t even a consensus on why there is a gap.
Is it because many black students come from homes where parents struggle to maintain stable housing and have to move their kids from school to school? Do parents have the time, interest or ability to focus on their children’s education and instill discipline?
Is it because white teachers don’t know how to connect with black children and end up sending them through the discipline process instead? Is there a culture of low expectations in city schools for students of color? These have been used to explain all or part of the gap.
A blue-ribbon panel in 1994 cited racism as a primary factor in the low achievement of St. Paul’s students of color. That triggered angry responses from teachers who said the report maligned them as racists.
Still, some people want to see a renewed focus on whether black students are being challenged and treated the same as whites.
“You must find a way where students, especially students of color, especially African-American boys, feel as if they’re being dealt with fairly,” says James Patterson, a parent at J.J. Hill Montessori Magnet School. “If (African-American kids) are given the same support, treated the same way, then they will excel.”
Patterson says he’s been dismayed to walk through schools and see African-American boys lined up at the principal’s office. He worries that many teachers may have a lower threshold for sending a disruptive black kid to the principal than for a disruptive white kid.
He believes those kinds of referrals need to be tracked in the same way the police are starting to track the race of drivers who are randomly stopped.
“We have too many teachers in St. Paul schools who are disconnected from our populations of color,” says Zelma Wiley, a former teacher at Dayton’s Bluff Elementary School who works now with a University of St. Thomas program to bring people of color into teaching.
“While there are many great teachers in this district, there are many who don’t adhere to the belief that our children can do as well as their European counterparts,” Wiley said. “There needs to be a good mix of dynamite teachers in every building.”
University of Minnesota researcher Ernest Davenport has studied course-taking of black and white high school students nationally and found that blacks take as many, sometimes more, math courses than whites, but that whites take more challenging math classes that better prepare them for college-level work. While he doesn’t have data to show it, Davenport believes black students sometimes get bad advice — that a white student having trouble in geometry, for example, might get more encouragement from adults and friends to tough it out, whereas a black student might be advised to try something else.
He also believes students limit themselves. “If a student wants to be an astronaut and go to college and hasn’t the prerequisite science courses necessary to do that, what they might do is get discouraged and do something else in their lives,” he says.

Schools Face Civil-Rights Probe

Schools Face Civil-Rights Probe
By Carol Kreck
Mar. 18, 2001 – Parents, teachers, students and leaders in Denver’s African-American community will visit neighborhoods this spring to conduct a civil rights investigation into why black students in Denver Public Schools do not perform as well as their white and Asian counterparts.
Denver lawyer Dale Sadler filed a petition last fall with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission asking it to examine why black students are not succeeding in greater numbers. The result is the broadest assessment the commission ever has undertaken.
While Denver Public Schools officials say resources are equally allocated in the schools, Sadler said that does not mean students receive equal chances.
“There’s no difference between racial profiling in law enforcement and racial profiling in education,” Sadler said. “There’s no difference between the way an officer reacts to people on the streets and how teachers react to people in the classroom.”
To see if there is indeed a problem, the Colorado Civil Rights Commission is appointing a task force that will look at possible discriminatory policies at George Washington, East, Manual and Montbello high schools. In addition to parents, students and teachers, more than a score of black organizations will participate, including the NAACP, the Urban League, the Black Chamber of Commerce, 100 Black Men, Sam Carey Bar Association and the Million Man Committee.
The task force will then gather public testimony in the neighborhoods and organize focus groups with parents, teachers and administrators.
Already the commission has posed a series of questions to DPS that the district has answered.
The first: “What data exists to indicate that African-American students at the four Denver high schools are given support to choose their career and educational endeavors?”
Each school principal responded with a list of programs. Manual had 11, including career coaches, summer internships, a college summit, a college counseling center and software to prepare students for the ACT.
Another question asked what plans were in place to address the disparity in performance of black students.
Again, schools responded individually. Montbello listed remedial classes, block scheduling to lessen student movement and plans for every student scoring at 50 percent or below on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills.
DPS interim Superintendent Bernadette Seick said that a different kind of resource should also be part of the discussion: parents. Parental involvement peaks in elementary school, she said. It drops at middle school and is “far, far too low” at the high school level.
Sadler said he’s been thinking about ways to address educational disparities for a long time. Two years ago, he took a trip to Milwaukee with a delegation of Denverites to get a firsthand look at that city’s voucher system for students in failing schools.
The Black Alliance for Educational Opportunity, for which he filed the civil rights petition, supports such a system.
More than a year ago Sadler tried to bring a case against DPS in Denver District Court, but in February 2000 the suit was dismissed because parents couldn’t show a contract was broken.
Then a story ran in September in the George Washington High School newspaper that said although the school was nationally ranked based on its programs for intellectually gifted students, black students there don’t do as well as white students.
Students there protested.
“As a civil rights attorney, that caught my eye,” Sadler said. “Black children made it clear that although it is an integrated high school, a nationally ranked high school, George Washington is a black high school separate and apart from a white high school.”
Sadler petitioned the Colorado Civil Rights Commission the following month to launch an investigation. His petition concluded: “Either black children are not academically capable of learning, or public high schools are failing to effectively educate black children.” In November, the commission accepted that charge.
It agreed to conduct an assessment that would gain insight from three perspectives: the gap in black/white academic performance, the disproportionately low participation of black students in Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs, and disproportionate discipline of black students resulting in suspensions, expulsions and “other derogatory actions.”
Though Hispanic students aren’t doing especially well compared with white and Asian students, black student achievement is the sole interest of the inquiry. “Blacks and Latinos have slightly different educational issues,” Sadler said, among them, bilingual education.
Civil Rights Commission staff director Rene Ramirez said the commission fields 1,200 individual complaints annually, but has never before undertaken a such broad inquiry. “There is no precedent,” he said, but it appears likely they’ll apply what they learn on this foray to later assessment of Hispanic student achievement.

Stay Away From Black Doctors
Is Racial Preference Unfair?
By Linda Chavez | Tuesday June 19 01:00 AM EDT
The American Medical Association meets this week in Chicago for its annual conference, and there will be plenty of controversial public policy issues on its agenda. But one issue you can bet the AMA won’t talk about is what effect the widespread practice of admitting blacks and Hispanics to medical school with lower qualifications than their white and Asian counterparts is having on the medical profession.
By now, most Americans have gotten used to the idea that colleges and universities apply double standards when it comes to admitting black and Hispanic undergraduates — even if they don’t like it very much. The assumption has been, however, that these students somehow catch up over the next four years and go on to be just as successful as their white and Asian peers. This notion was given a boost a few years ago when two influential former college presidents, William Bowen and Derek Bok, published the findings of a study on affirmative action, “The Shape of the River,” in which they claimed that minority students who benefited from preferential admissions standards nonetheless went on to perform well, earning graduate degrees at higher numbers than might be expected.
What Bowen and Bok didn’t say is that the same degree of racial preference being given to minority students at the undergraduate level applies to graduate schools, too, including medical schools. For the first time ever, we now have the hard numbers to prove that medical schools routinely give preference to less-qualified black (and sometimes Hispanic) applicants than to others.
The Center for Equal Opportunity (CEO), which I head, has been studying the issue of racial preferences in college admissions for the past six years. We’ve now turned our focus to medical schools and are in the process of gathering information on every public school of medicine in the country. So far, we’ve analyzed six medical schools, representing every geographic region of the country, and the pattern for medical schools is the same as it was for undergraduate institutions. Black and Hispanic students are being admitted to medical school with substantially lower college grades and test scores than whites or Asians.
If you’re a black or, to a lesser degree, Hispanic applicant, your chances of being admitted to medical school are far greater than whites or Asians with the same college grades and Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) scores. At the University of Washington School of Medicine in 1997, the odds ratio of a black applicant being admitted over a white with the same grades and MCAT scores were nearly 30-to-1. At the State University of New York, Brooklyn, the odds were nearly 23-to-1 in 1996 and were 9-to-1 in 1999. At the University of Maryland in 1999, they were 21-to-1, and at the University of Georgia in 1996, they were 19-to-1. At Michigan State University College of Human Medicine they were 12-to-1 in 1997 and 14-to-1 in 1999.
But more disturbing even than the finding that medical schools seem to be admitting less-qualified students on the basis of race and ethnicity is that many of these students can’t pass their licensing exams, despite greater resources directed toward helping them than other students received. At every medical school CEO studied, substantially larger numbers of black students than whites either did not take or failed their initial licensing exams, and, in most instances, failed their subsequent licensing tests as well.
These higher failure rates don’t just mean personal disappointment. Since medical education requires a huge allocation of resources — and at state schools, this usually means tax-payer funding — medical students who do not go on to become doctors are a poor investment. More than 3,500 white and Asian students were not admitted to the schools CEO studied, despite having better grades and test scores than black and Hispanic applicants who were given preferential treatment. Since grades and, in particular, MCAT scores are very good predictors of performance on the licensing exams, we know that a higher percentage of these students would have passed the exams if they had been admitted.
So, who wins? Certainly not the whites and Asians denied the opportunity to study medicine. But neither do the blacks and Hispanics who were admitted to medical school but could not survive there. And all of the rest of us — of all colors — suffer, too, from a shortage of qualified doctors.

Teacher Test Shows Wide Racial Gap

Teacher Test Shows Wide Racial Gap
By PHILIP WALZER AND ALICE WARCHOL
NORFOLK — Twenty-seven percent of Norfolk State University education students passed the PRAXIS I basic-skills test for teachers in 2000, the lowest rate among Virginia colleges, a state report shows.
Hampton University, a predominantly black college like NSU, had the second-lowest rate, at 33 percent. The rate at Old Dominion University, which is predominantly white, was 75 percent.
The numbers, officials say, reflect a nationwide problem: a treacherous gap separating black and white pass rates on the exam.
Another Virginia study, released Thursday, showed gaps exceeding 30 points on all test sections. Sixty-six percent of whites passed the math section of the paper-and-pencil version of the exam last year; 24 percent of blacks did.
Jean B. Braxton, Norfolk State’s education dean, said some students who failed parts of the PRAXIS got As in high school math and English.
Too many school systems “have not addressed the different learning styles of our students,” said Braxton. Black students, for example, tend to learn better in groups than working independently, she said. But too many people “think there is one cure-all.”
Norfolk State has strengthened help sessions for PRAXIS, including summer workshops, Braxton said. Last year, it instituted a rule barring students from entering the teaching program unless they have passed the exam.
The state this week tightened PRAXIS standards for all colleges: On Wednesday, a policy took effect requiring education students to pass the exam before they complete their college’s teacher preparation program.
The goal is to ensure top-notch teachers, but it could boomerang against efforts to alleviate the shortage of minority teachers.
Braxton said Norfolk State’s rule has reduced the number of students in the program — she said she couldn’t say by how much — but quality matters more than quantity: “The graduates we produce will be ones who meet state and national standards, who are committed, caring and competent. If it means 50 good teachers or five, that’s what we need to do.”
In recent years, the state has swung in different directions on the PRAXIS, stiffening some requirements and loosening others. In 1996, the Board of Education instituted the highest scores required to pass in the country.
But last month, the board made it easier for some students to pass: It combined the required minimum scores for each test section — reading, math and writing — into a composite score. That means if a student fell below the pass rate in math by two points but exceeded the required writing score by three points, she would pass.
The new scoring system allows tests from as far back as 1996 to be rescored. Braxton said NSU has begun to recalculate scores and expects its pass rate to rise “significantly” because some students failed a section by one or two points.
The state permits teachers who haven’t passed the PRAXIS exam to teach for three years under a temporary license. Of the new teaching licenses issued by Virginia last year, 48 percent were temporary licenses. One primary reason was that teachers had not taken or had failed the test.
Until recently, the state had not instituted PRAXIS requirements for colleges. But for at least a couple of years, some schools — including Christopher Newport and Virginia Wesleyan — have required students to pass the PRAXIS at least before their senior year.
That’s why their pass rates in the state report — which looks only at students about to graduate — stand at 100 percent.
ODU, like Norfolk State, last summer began requiring students entering its teaching program — usually in the junior year — to pass the PRAXIS.
A 1999 report from the Educational Testing Service showed a gulf, nationwide, between blacks and whites on the PRAXIS: 82 percent of whites and 46 percent of blacks passed all sections.
It’s not unique to that exam: On the SAT, taken by high schoolers, whites had an average score of 1058, compared with 860 for blacks, in 2000.
The Educational Testing Service report warned that the “push to diversify the race/ethnicity of the teaching force has collided head-on with the higher standards movement.” Raising PRAXIS requirements, it said, could exclude “a disproportionate number of minorities from the profession.”
Elaine P. Witty, the retired dean of NSU’s School of Education, gained national prominence for homing in on the minority teacher shortage. But she supports the efforts by NSU and the state to toughen PRAXIS requirements. “I think the public is demanding accountability in terms of tests,” she said Thursday.
Witty, however, said that test scores don’t tell the whole story. Teaching colleges, she said, need to work harder to collect other “indicators of quality,” such as the performance of children taught by their graduates.
Norfolk State, Braxton said, is pinpointing students who need help and offering them options ranging from summer workshops to one-on-one sessions.
“We understand here that there are some things we have to put in place to help our students,” she said. “Our focus now is to put on the market a student who is prepared to teach, who is well-versed in their content area and who will be able to work well with children.”

Test Score Probe Sought

Test Score Probe Sought
Rights panel asked to determine why whites seem to outperform blacks at 4 Denver high schools
By Holly Kurtz, Denver Rocky Mountain News Staff Writer
Colorado civil rights commissioners are being asked to quiz school officials about why whites seem to get better test scores and grades than do blacks at four Denver high schools.
They are expected to decide Nov. 16 whether to investigate academic disparities among the races at George Washington, Montbello, Manual and East high schools, said H. Rene Ramirez, director of the Colorado Civil Rights Division.
A black educational organization asked for an investigation in the aftermath of a rally at George Washington High. The rally was over a student newspaper article that said whites got better grades than blacks at the school.
“The black children were demoralized and insulted only to find out it’s true,” said civil rights attorney D. Dale Sadler.
Sadler filed the petition on behalf of the Denver/Aurora chapter of the Black Alliance for Educational Options.
Sadler’s petition asks commissioners to find out why whites at four Denver high schools seem to be earning better grades, getting higher test scores, garnering more places in the rigorous International Baccalaureate program at George Washington, and tallying fewer suspensions and expulsions than their black peers.
Whites at these schools outperformed black classmates in most — but not all — categories of the 1999 Iowa Test of Educational Development, according to Denver Public Schools data.
Sadler wants the commission to draw up solutions and hold community forums in cooperation with other government agencies and grassroots groups.
The Civil Rights Commission has the power to order legal remedies. But director Ramirez says it lacks authority to do so in this situation.
“I would anticipate the commission working with Denver Public Schools and the administrators to work out a plan everyone could accept,” Ramirez said.
DPS spokeswoman Amy Hudson said the school district had yet to be informed of the petition, which civil rights commissioners received Friday.
Sadler said he complained directly to the Civil Rights Commission because he didn’t think the school district would act.
“Going to Denver Public Schools,” he said, “is kind of like sending the chicken into the foxhole and saying, ‘Can you solve our problems for us?’ If I would go to Denver Public Schools, I would expect them to ‘public relations’ the problem away.”
Bennie Milliner, Denver’s only black school board member, sees it differently.
“We always welcome scrutiny. We love it. We wish it would come constructively. If he believes he can help us determine that’s true, then help us do something about it, then that’s great.”
Ida Jones, Montbello High principal, says her school is not discriminating.
“I really have a hard time talking about this as some kind of conspiracy,” she said. “Why would I work 12 and 14 hours a day so I could watch other people’s children not succeed?”
Jones also questioned zeroing in on high schools.
“Looking at it from the high-school level might be just a little too late,” she said.
Sadler said he focused on high school students because there’s not much time to help them before they go out into the world. The next step, he says, is to examine the lower grades.
“How can we have white children thriving while black children are failing?” he asked. “Either black children aren’t capable or there’s something wrong with the service delivery system.”
Sadler believes it’s the latter.
So does Candace Tasker, the George Washington High student who organized the rally that helped inspire the petition.
“I’ve talked to a few students who feel like, just because they’re minorities, nobody expects anything of them,” she said.
Along with her classmates and principal, Tasker is working on solutions that include a tutoring program for struggling students.

Appalachian School of Law shooting suspect arraigned on capital murder charges
Appalachian School of Law shooting suspect arraigned on capital murder charges
By MIKE STILL
GRUNDY – Peter Odighizuwa appeared in court Thursday morning to face formal murder and attempted murder charges while Appalachian School of Law students and staff gathered with Grundy residents to mourn the victims of the former ASL student’s alleged shooting spree.
Odighizuwa, 43, was arraigned in Buchanan County General District Court on three capital murder charges, three attempted capital murder charges, and six associated felony use of firearm charges in connection with the ASL shootings, which left the school’s dean, an associate professor and a first-year law student dead and three students injured.
Odighizuwa, wearing a green jail uniform and handcuffs, stood quietly and hid his face behind a sheaf of legal papers as Buchanan County Commonwealth’s Attorney Sheila Tolliver read off the charges she sought against the former ASL student.
Most of the courtroom gallery behind Odighizuwa was blocked with a police tape line, while ASL students, faculty, staff and area residents filled the remaining seats, lined the courtroom walls, and stood outside the courtroom doors to listen to the proceedings.
The shooting incident began about 1:15 p.m. Wednesday when Odighizuwa came to the ASL main building to meet with a professor about his academic suspension.
Authorities say the Nigerian-born, naturalized U.S. citizen asked the professor to “pray” for him before going to the second-floor offices of Dean L. Anthony Sutin and Professor Thomas F. Blackwell and fatally shooting them.
Odighizuwa is then alleged to have gone to a first-floor lounge area and fired upon a group of students, killing first-year student Angela Dales and wounding students Rebecca C. Brown, Martha M. Short and Stacey Beans. Odighizuwa then went outside the building, and a group of male students subdued and held him until police arrived.
Virginia State Police spokesman Mike Stater said Thursday that the wounded students’ conditions had been upgraded since Wednesday night.
Stater said Odighizuwa’s estranged wife was believed to have left the area with the couple’s children.
General District Judge Patrick Johnson appointed Radford attorney James Turk Jr., a capital case-certified lawyer in Virginia, to handle Odighizuwa’s defense, sparking a brief outburst from Odighizuwa as he demanded to have Richlands, Va., attorney James Carmody appointed as his lawyer.
Odighizuwa later asked Johnson to allow him to contact his doctor about obtaining his prescription medicine, and Johnson ordered the sheriff’s department to work out the details after setting a March 21 preliminary hearing date. No bond was set.
Tolliver later said she planned to seek the death penalty against Odighizuwa, and the March 21 hearing would probably deal with various defense and prosecution motions rather than any plea on the defendant’s behalf.
Stater said investigators have a list of 44 eyewitnesses to interview in the case, and police believe Odighizuwa legally obtained the .380-caliber Jennings semiautomatic pistol retrieved at the shooting scene Wednesday.
According to Buchanan County Juvenile and Domestic Court records released Thursday, Odighizuwa had been charged with misdemeanor assault and battery against his wife, Abieyuwa Odighizuwa, on Aug. 15, 2001. An emergency protective order was issued against him that same day. A domestic relations judge dismissed the complaint in November after his wife testified that their dispute had been settled.

The Lesson of Africa

The Lesson of Africa
by Dr. William Pierce
Another White farmer in South Africa was murdered a few days ago. He was 65-year-old Daniel Marais. His wife Maria managed to escape from their farm near Bloemfontein and run three miles with their grandchild to a neighboring farm, after she had been assaulted by a Black. Mr. Marais however was too badly wounded by the Black attacker to escape, and he died on his farm.
Two weeks ago Blacks invaded the Van Niekerk farm near Witbank. They beat 71-year-old Gerhardus Van Niekerk on the face and head with a metal rod until they thought he was dead, then shot him in the face. Van Niekirk lost a lot of blood, but he survived the attack. He was one of a lucky few. Most don’t survive.
A few days before the Van Niekerk attack, a gang of Blacks descended on the farm of 65-year-old Don Delafield and his 52-year-old wife Verina, 80 miles from Johannesburg. The White farmer and his wife were tied up, tortured savagely, and then butchered by the Blacks. A note left at the scene identified the murderers as members of the Azanian Peoples Liberation Army, the military wing of the Pan-Africanist Congress.
Twenty White farmers and members of their families have been murdered in South Africa in the past six weeks. That’s about the same rate at which White farmers and their families were murdered by Blacks in South Africa during 1997. If that were happening to White farm families in the United States at a proportional rate, it would be 100 farm families a week being murdered — a major problem indeed.
White farmers in South Africa are very alarmed about the murders, of course, so they’ve sent several delegations to Nelson Mandela and other government officials to demand that something be done. They’re not getting much satisfaction from the government, however. The government says that its hands already are full trying to deal with the crime situation in South Africa, and that it can’t spare any additional policemen to investigate the attacks on White farms. Robbery, rape, and murder have soared since the Whites of South Africa voted to turn their country over to Black rule four years ago.
White farmers are convinced that the attacks on them are more than a simple matter of crime. If the Blacks attacking their farms merely had robbery in mind, it would not be necessary to torture and kill their White victims. The Whites believe that the aim of the Black gangs is terrorism, and the note left at the scene of the Delafield murders supports their belief. The White farmers also note that the farmers who have been murdered were in many cases those who had been well known for their generosity to their Black workers. They suspect that the aim of the murderers is to drive the White farmers out of South Africa, and so the terrorists are striking preferentially at the Whites who have good relations with Blacks.
Mandela’s government doesn’t want the White farmers driven out, because it would be an economic catastrophe for South Africa. The White farmers produce nearly all of South Africa’s food and much of its foreign exchange. But many Blacks are more concerned with grabbing White wealth now than they are with the prosperity of the country later. In addition, the idea of forcing the Whites out appeals to many Blacks at an emotional level. Being dependent on the productivity of White farmers is galling to Blacks, and they are more inclined to kill the goose now than to continue collecting the golden eggs.
If the murder of White farm families continues at the rate of the past 18 months, the terrorists undoubtedly will succeed. And there is little chance that the Mandela government or any Black successor government will be able to stop the killings; the government of South Africa becomes more chaotic, corrupt, and inefficient by the month. If it can do nothing to control the crime in Johannesburg, it is unlikely to have much influence on terrorism in the countryside.
The really disappointing aspect to all of this is that it should have been foreseen. The Whites of South Africa voted themselves into their present situation, when they agreed to let Blacks participate in their elections in 1994. They folded up under the pressure of being called bad names by the Jewish media and being told by their preachers that Jesus was angry at them because of apartheid. They were so eager to be in the good graces of Jesus, the Jews, and the “international community” that they took leave of their senses and handed their government over to Nelson Mandela and his fellow Black terrorists on a silver platter. They believed the assurances of the media and the bought politicians that everything would work out for the best if they let the Blacks run South Africa.
That’s really incredible, considering what they knew about Black behavior in the rest of Africa. Consider Kolwezi, for example. Whites in America won’t have heard of Kolwezi, of course, because the Jewish media kept pretty quiet about it over here. It’s the sort of thing the Jews thought it better for us not to hear about, and so after a few sketchy news reports they blacked it out and never mentioned it again. But they couldn’t keep it from the South Africans, who were much more attuned to what was happening in Africa than we were.
Kolwezi was a mining town in the Shaba province of what was known 20 years ago as Zaire. Before that it was known as the Belgian Congo, and today, under the rule of its latest African strongman it is known as the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The Belgians had turned their colony over to Black rule in 1960, as part of the general decolonization process which accompanied the egalitarian craze following the Second World War. A deranged Black Marxist ideologue, Patrice Lumumba, presided over the transition to Black rule of the Congo, and the killing and rape of Whites began almost immediately.
Most of the Whites in the Congo weren’t natives, as in South Africa. They were Belgian administrators and technicians and mining engineers, along with a few Christian missionaries, doctors, and nurses. Many of the longer-term White residents had their families with them. In 1964, when one of the Black factions struggling for control of the Congo captured Stanleyville, an administrative center with a population of about 25,000 where more than 2,000 Whites were living, the rapes and murders of Whites flared up again. Belgian paratroopers had to capture Stanleyville in order to rescue the terrified White survivors. Most Americans heard briefly about that at the time, but the news certainly wasn’t emphasized, and so we quickly forgot about it. The South Africans didn’t forget, though.
Then in May 1978, while the Congo was temporarily going by the name Zaire, a Black tribal faction that was at odds with the central government moved into Kolwezi. Kolwezi, a town of about 20,000 inhabitants at the time in the southeastern part of the country, was a local center for the copper and cobalt mining in the area, and a number of White engineers and technicians were there, some with their wives and children. The Blacks who were opposed to the central government saw the White minority in Kolwezi as supporters of the central government, because it was the Whites who were keeping the mines running. Actually, the Whites were on neither side of the conflict. They were there simply to do a job, and they didn’t concern themselves much with Black politics, but the fact that their activity in operating the mines was keeping the central government afloat was all the excuse the Black rebels needed to kill them. And of course, the Blacks went about killing the Whites in a typically Black fashion, with lots of gang-raping and mutilation. White women had their breasts hacked off with machetes. Little White girls were literally raped to death by long lines of grinning Blacks, while their parents were forced at gunpoint to watch. Little White boys had their bellies slit open and their entrails pulled out. Altogether 160 Whites were butchered in Kolwezi. Even though that was in 1978, it made enough of an impression on White South Africans that they shouldn’t have forgotten it by 1994.
And if Stanleyville and Kolwezi weren’t enough, there were plenty of other instructive examples for the White South Africans. There was what happened in Angola in 1961, when Portuguese colonists were butchered in a terror campaign so terrible that I cannot discuss the details on this program. It is perhaps more difficult to sympathize with the Portuguese than with the Belgians, because many of the Portuguese had, as we say, “gone native.” They didn’t keep themselves separate enough from the Blacks around them. Some had even taken Black wives and had mulatto children. Race-mixing wasn’t as abhorrent to the Portuguese as to other Europeans in Africa. Nevertheless, what the Blacks did to the Portuguese, even those with non-White family members, was as bloody and cruel as anything done to other Europeans in Africa.
The Whites of Rhodesia, South Africa’s neighbor, certainly didn’t mix with the Blacks in their country. The Whites of Rhodesia not only maintained their dignity and pride as Europeans, but they did a very creditable job of keeping their Blacks under control. Even the Rhodesian farmers, whose farms often were isolated and many miles from their nearest neighbors, were quite successful at dealing with Black terrorists. In Rhodesia the Blacks struck at the easiest White targets, and these were the Christian missionary stations. Various Christian churches had set up missionary stations throughout Rhodesia for the purpose of converting the Blacks to Christianity, and these stations usually had schools and clinics associated with them. They were unarmed. When Black terrorists would descend on one of these missionary stations they would rape and butcher all of the Whites they could get their hands on. This happened over and over again, and the South Africans heard all of the grisly details every time.
Nevertheless, the White South African government betrayed the White Rhodesians in 1976 by joining the United Nations embargo against Rhodesia and cutting off Rhodesia’s supply of helicopters and other weapons. This move forced the Rhodesians to capitulate to the Blacks, and their country, now called Zimbabwe, is ruled by one of the former Black terrorist leaders, who is now a de facto “president for life” and has announced a plan to seize the land of the White farmers who remain in the country.
The South Africans betrayed the Rhodesians in 1976 in part because the Jews of South Africa always have had a strong influence on the South African government through their media control and their money. Harry Oppenheimer, with his vast holdings in diamonds, gold, and other minerals, had more money with which to corrupt politicians than anyone else in South Africa. And the Jews, of course, were as implacably hostile to the Whites of Rhodesia as they have been to other Whites everywhere and at all times.
And in part the White South Africans betrayed the Rhodesians because they thought that by throwing their White neighbors to the wolves they could buy time for themselves. As it turned out it wasn’t much time: just 18 years. During those 18 years they really should have been paying more attention to what was happening in other parts of Africa. The fact that they learned nothing from the examples of Angola, Stanleyville, Kolwezi, and the Christian missions in Rhodesia should be instructive to us.
I talked with several South Africans before 1994. None were in favor of surrendering their country to the Blacks, but they had some very strange notions about what Black rule would mean. They thought that because the Blacks of South Africa had a standard of living so much higher than Blacks anywhere else in Africa they wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize that. Blacks might engage in terrorism in Angola and Zaire — those are very primitive countries, and the Blacks there are savages — but the Blacks in South Africa are better educated and better treated than elsewhere. Blacks, these White South Africans told me, are like children. They can’t run a modern country like South Africa by themselves. They need the Whites to keep things going for them, and the Whites will be able to control them, just as they have for the past 400 years.
These White South Africans that I spoke with were very civilized, very comfortable people. They all had Black servants back home. I think that they just couldn’t deal with the idea of a South Africa without Blacks: a South Africa in which Whites would take care of their own children, clean their own toilets, cook their own meals, cut their own grass, take out their own garbage, and take in their belts enough to cope with any economic pressure applied to them by the rest of the world. It’s too bad they weren’t a little less civilized and a little less comfortable. Perhaps they’d still have their own country today. Perhaps they wouldn’t be reading in their newspapers every week about three or four more White farm families butchered by Black terrorists. Perhaps they wouldn’t have to be wondering if there is anywhere to immigrate to.
Perhaps I shouldn’t be so hard on them. Certainly, they did an enormously foolish and shameful thing in giving up their country without a fight — but are we Americans any less foolish? Think how many White Americans there are who believe that we’ll all continue to live together as happy consumers and television viewers, regardless of race, color, or creed, when America has a non-White majority around the middle of the next century. Our Blacks, they believe, are much more civilized than those Blacks who are butchering White farm families in South Africa.
Or rather, that’s what they’d believe if the controlled news media told them about what’s happening in South Africa. White Americans have never given any evidence of being more intelligent, more independent minded, more courageous, or more morally upright than South Africans, so why should we expect Americans to make better use than the South Africans did of the knowledge of what to expect under non-White rule, if the Jewish media let them have that knowledge?
But three White farmers a week — or 100 a week — being murdered by Black terrorists in South Africa isn’t news that fits. Much better to restrict the news from Africa to scenes of Mr. Clinton hugging happy Blacks.
Perhaps we can learn from the example of the South Africans. Of course, when I say “we” I don’t mean White Americans as a whole. Since White South Africans as a whole didn’t learn a thing from the example of the Portuguese, the Belgians, and the Rhodesians, I don’t expect Americans to do any better. But perhaps some of us can learn a few things.
One of those things is that we really need to find a better way than mass democracy for governing ourselves. We’ve been fed a lot of egalitarian baloney about people all being pretty much the same, and so we tend to assume that since we can look at facts and make rational decisions, everyone else can. But most people cannot. Most people are not rational and can be manipulated by playing on their fears and desires, the way the majority of South African Whites were manipulated by the media and the churches in their country in 1994. The South Africans didn’t want the situation they have today, but they let themselves be bullied, lied, and tricked into it. If only hard-headed and rational South African Whites had been permitted to vote in 1994, South Africa still would be a White-ruled country today: perhaps even an all-White country.
The second thing we should learn from the South African experience is that we cannot permit our mass media to remain in the hands of the Jews or in the hands of those under the influence of Jews. The foolish South Africans were manipulated, and it was the mass media more than anything else which manipulated them.
The Jewish media in South Africa could not keep the news of Black behavior in other parts of Africa away from White South Africans, but they could and did play down that news. They could and did berate South Africans non-stop about the wickedness of apartheid and about how awful it was to be unpopular among liberals in other countries, and they could and did play on the feminine nature of the White masses by telling them over and over, as seductively as possible, how nice it would be to be loved by the international community instead of being hated.
And the third thing we must learn from the experience of Whites in Africa is that the only way for our people to survive and flourish is to live among our own kind. Multiracial societies do not work and cannot work. If we permit Whites to become a minority in America in the next century as the Clintonistas are planning, then we will suffer a fate similar to that of Whites everywhere else that they have let themselves become a minority. What we must do to avoid becoming a minority may be extraordinarily hard, but we must do it to survive. The extinction of our people is the alternative.

The Lesson of Haiti

The Lesson of Haiti
by Dr. William Pierce
This month the last of the United Nations “peacekeeping” troops in Haiti will leave, and the Haitians will be given yet another chance to try to govern themselves. The “peacekeepers” occupied Haiti, along with 23,000 U.S. troops, three years ago, in order to force the government of General Raoul Cedras to resign so that a Clinton favorite, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, could be installed as president. The reasons presented to the American public for this interference in Haiti’s affairs were that General Cedras was a “dictator” and that he didn’t respect the “human rights” of the Haitians. Mr. Clinton’s friend Aristide, on the other hand, was said to be a “democrat” and a respecter of human rights.
Actually, Aristide is a former priest turned Marxist whose idea of respecting human rights is to incite mobs of his supporters to murder his political opponents by breaking their arms, wiring a gasoline-soaked tire around their necks, and burning them to death — a procedure known as “necklacing.” Well, that’s about par for making a country safe for democracy the United Nations way!
However, the Haitians didn’t care much more for Mr. Clinton’s Marxist buddy Aristide than they did for General Cedras, and Aristide is out of office again and the Haitians are about to be allowed to run things themselves once more. Well, almost. Five hundred U.S. troops will remain in the country to keep an eye on things. They will call for more help if the need to “make Haiti safe for democracy” arises again.
The Clintonistas aren’t bragging very loudly about the success of their latest effort in that direction, because the situation in Haiti is just about as grim today as it was before the United Nations stuck its nose into things three years ago. About the only significant change is that the flood of Haitian “boat people” washing up on Florida’s beaches has slowed somewhat, but that flood was caused in the first place by an embargo imposed on Haiti by the U.S. government in an unsuccessful attempt to force General Cedras out, and the consequent damage to Haiti’s already pitifully weak economy. When the embargo was removed, many Haitians decided to stay at home and share in the new goodies brought to them by the Clinton administration.
The U.S. troops built roads, schools, and clinics and pumped a few billion U.S. dollars into the Haitian economy, but a survey of the results of all this effort is not encouraging. The streets of Port-au-Prince still reek of garbage and human waste, political corruption is as bad as it ever was, and violent crime is on the rise. The new roads and clinics built by the United States merely add a superficial appearance of improvement, so that the tourist industry is able to begin making a little money again, but the basic situation of Haiti and the lives of most Haitians remain unchanged.
This sort of thing has happened over and over again in Haiti. It seems that we would have learned something from it. In the 18th century Haiti, then called Saint-Domingue and ruled by the French, was the most prosperous colony in the New World. Its enormously fertile soil produced a great abundance of crops and drew thousands of White French settlers. Unfortunately, Black slaves from Africa were imported to help with the work.
In the late 1700′s the madness of the French Revolution, with its truly nutty doctrine of racial equality, infected many Frenchmen, and the Black plantation workers were encouraged to revolt. When they did they brutally murdered every White man, woman, and child in the colony and declared Haiti a republic. What had been the richest and most productive part of the New World promptly sank back to an African level of squalor, misery, and poverty. The roads and cities built by the French fell into ruin. A peculiarly African mixture of anarchy and despotism took the place of French law and order.
A little over a century later, in 1915, following an especially chaotic and bloody period, U.S. Marines were sent into Haiti to force a semblance of order on the country. The reason for sending them was to safeguard American business interests in Haiti, although President Wilson told Americans that the Marines were being sent to “bring democracy to Haiti.” The Marines remained in Haiti for 19 years. They not only enforced governmental stability there, but they also built schools and hospitals, a modern telephone system, and more than 1,000 miles of paved roads with 210 bridges. The U.S. government trained Haitian teachers and doctors. We really gave the Haitians the basis for a fresh start. As soon as the U.S. Marines pulled out in 1934, however, the Haitians returned to their own way of doing things, which is to say, to indolence, corruption, and Voodoo. Everything the Americans had built for them gradually returned to the jungle.
In 1958 the United States sent the Marines to Haiti again, this time with the aim of rebuilding the country’s economy and infrastructure so that it would not succumb to Communist influences. We propped up the regime of “Papa Doc” Duvalier, who had been trained in medicine during our first incursion into Haiti, but who was a practitioner of Voodoo as well. He was a brutal and bloody dictator. Again we spent hundreds of millions of dollars rebuilding what the Haitians had wrecked and training thousands of them in the skills needed to keep the country running. But when we pulled out again, the country immediately returned to its old ways: its African ways.
And in 1994 we tried the same foolishness all over again, claiming that we were “restoring democracy” to Haiti.
Why can’t we accept the plain and simple truth that it is as impossible to make democrats out of the Haitians as it is to teach them how to maintain their own roads? Why can’t we understand that the Haitians are fundamentally different from us, that they are Africans, not Europeans like us: that they are Negroes, and that left to themselves they must do things in the way Negroes always have done them, with indolence, corruption, and Voodoo?
I have in front of me a book on Haiti written by a British scholar, a fellow of the Royal Geographic Society, following his extended travels in Haiti at the beginning of this century. The book was published by Thomas Nelson and Sons, with offices in London, Edinburgh, Dublin, and New York. The author is Hesketh Prichard, and the title of his book is Where Black Rules White: A Journey Across and About Hayti. Prichard chose his title because he was especially interested in the fact that Haiti was a country ruled entirely by its Black population, without the White colonial domination that was present nearly everywhere else in the non-White world at that time. The only Whites in the country were a few hundred businessmen and their agents in the coastal cities. These Whites were not treated well by the government or people of Haiti.
Prichard was basically sympathetic to the Blacks and wanted to see how they lived when they had been introduced to civilization by Whites but were then left completely free to do as they wished, without White control. He writes of Haiti in the first chapter of his book: “There the law of the world is reversed, and the Black man rules. It is one of the few spots on earth where his color sets the Negro upon a pedestal and gives him privileges. The full-blooded African is paramount; even the mulattos and half-breeds are disliked and have been barbarously weeded out as time has passed.”
One of the first things Prichard notes about Haiti is the pervasive filth. He was not expecting sanitation to be up to European standards, of course, but he was stunned by the degree of filth he actually encountered, not just in the villages but also in the capital city, Port-au-Prince. And he was struck by the caricatures of finery and elegance which thrived in the midst of this filth. For example, he noticed that every Haitian of any importance at all bore the title of “general” and was equipped with a gaudy general’s uniform, replete with gold braid and all the other trimmings. When he inquired into the military establishment in Haiti, where the total population at that time was under two million, he discovered that the Haitian Army boasted 6,500 generals, 7,000 regimental officers, and 6,500 privates.
Prichard recounts a conversation he had one evening with three Haitian generals. It is a conversation with a surrealistic quality, as are many other things in Haiti. At one level the Black generals are able to converse with a semblance of knowledge of military matters, but at another level it is clear that they are completely out of touch with reality. One is reminded of the classical stereotype of the African cannibal wearing an opera hat and a loincloth.
Prichard’s book is filled with fascinating anecdotes and with detailed descriptions of his personal experiences with various facets of Haitian life. He remarks on the good-natured, open-hearted character of the people, who could nevertheless commit the most blood-curdling atrocities at the least provocation. The extreme degree of corruption of the Haitian bureaucracy elicits special attention from Prichard, as does the utterly capricious way in which it operates. The dispensing of justice, in particular, is a caricature of European systems, in which many of the same outward forms are observed.
Prichard also comments on the religious beliefs and practices of the Haitians. The official religion, which they inherited from their former French masters, is Roman Catholicism, but the true religion of the people is Voodoo, a peculiarly African religion with Catholic touches. In religion as in other aspects of Haitian life there is a bizarre blending of White forms with Black substance.
Later in his book Prichard generalizes from many of his observations to reach a fundamental conclusion about life in Haiti: namely, that in all matters regarding their connections with the White world, with White civilization, the Haitians are more concerned with show than with substance, and their ability to mimic the characteristics of White people, both individually and collectively, persuades many people who observe them only superficially and who want to believe them equal that they really are equal.
Prichard writes: “What most astonishes the traveler in Hayti is that they have everything there. Ask for what you please, the answer invariably is, ‘Yes, yes, we have it.’ They possess everything that a civilized and progressive nation can desire. Electric light? They proudly point to a [power] plant on a hilltop outside the town. Constitutional government? A Chamber of Deputies elected by public vote, a Senate, and all the elaborate paraphernalia of the law: they are to be found here, seemingly all of them. Institutions, churches, schools, roads, railways . . . . On paper their system is flawless. . . . If one puts one’s trust in the mirage of hearsay, the Haitians can boast of possessing all desirable things, but on nearer approach these pleasant prospects are apt to take on another complexion.
“For instance, you are standing in what was once a building, but is now a spindle-shanked ghost of its former self. A single man, nursing a broken leg, sprawls on the black, earthen floor; a pile of wooden beds is heaped in the north corner; rain has formed a pool in the middle of the room, crawling and spreading into an ever wider circle as the last shower drips from the roof. Some filthy sheets lie wound into a sticky ball on two beds, one of which is overturned. A large, iron washing tub stands in the open doorway.
“Now where are you? It would be impossible to guess. As a matter of fact, you are in the Military Hospital of the second most important town of Hayti, a state-supported concern in which the soldiers of the Republic are supposed to be cured of all the ills of the flesh. . . .
“It was the same with the electric light. The [power] plant was here, but it did not work. It was the same with the [Army's] cannon. There are cannon, but they won’t go off. It was the same with their railways. They were being ‘hurried forward,’ but they never progressed. It was the same with everything.”
There are many more examples. What had dawned on Prichard is that the Haitians really don’t care. To them the imitation of civilization is as good as the real thing. They believe that if they are able to dress like White men and speak the White man’s language and mimic the White man’s institutions, then they are as good as White men. And I believe what Prichard observed of the Haitians applies equally well to Blacks in the United States today.
Prichard ends his book with a chapter titled “Can the Negro Rule Himself?” And he answers his question:
“The present condition of Hayti gives the best possible answer to the question, and, considering the experiment has lasted for a century, perhaps also a conclusive one. For a century the answer has been working itself out there in flesh and blood. The Negro has had his chance, a fair field, and no favor. He has had the most beautiful and fertile of the Caribbees for his own; he has had the advantage of excellent French laws; he inherited a made country, with Cap Haitien for its Paris . . . . Here was a wide land sown with prosperity, a land of wood, water, towns and plantations, and in the midst of it the Black man was turned loose to work out his own salvation. What has he made of the chances that were given to him?”
Prichard then summarizes the century of Haiti’s independent existence, running through a list of Black rulers and strongmen, of revolutions and massacres and disorders. He winds up his survey with these words:
“Suffice it to say that . . . [Hayti's] best president was Geffrard, a mulatto, and that the dictatorship of her Black heads of state always has been marked by a redder smear than usual upon the page of history. The better, the wiser, the more enlightened and less brutalized class has always been composed of the mulattos, and the Blacks have recognized the fact and hated the mulatto element accordingly. But to pass from the earlier days of independence to more recent times: we had not long ago the savage rule of President Salomon, a notorious sectary of snake worship, beneath whose iron hand the country groaned for years, and public executions, assassinations, and robbery were the order of the day. And at the present time? Today in Hayti we come to the real crux of the question. At the end of a hundred years of trial how does the Black man govern himself? What progress has he made? Absolutely none.”
That’s the way it was a century ago, when Prichard wrote, and that’s essentially the way it is today, despite three large-scale efforts by the United States during this century to improve the lot of the Haitians.
Why is all of this important to us? A century ago Prichard was by no means an unusual man of his class. He went to Haiti, he carefully observed life there in great detail over an extended period, and he drew logical and reasonable conclusions from his observations. Other scholars of his day could have done the same thing. But it is unimaginable that a scholar today, whether from Britain or America, could make observations like Prichard did, draw similar conclusions, and then publish his conclusions in a book by a mainstream publisher. It is simply not possible.
In the first place, one would be hard pressed to find a scholar from any university in America or Britain today who would have the courage to write honestly about Haiti, because he knows that if he did he would be condemned as a “racist” by a numerous and noisy faction of his colleagues and would be drummed out of the academy. And even if someone did write a book with observations and conclusions similar to Prichard’s, no mainstream publisher would touch it. That’s how far downhill our civilization has slid in a century.
The Haitians have their Voodoo, with all of its disgusting and bizarre beliefs and practices. And we have our cult of Political Correctness, our cult of egalitarianism. It is a cult based as much on superstition and as devoid of reason and logic as the Voodoo of the Haitians. And it exercises as strong a hold on its adherents. A Haitian would as soon offend a Voodoo witch doctor and risk having a curse put on himself as one of our modern scholars would risk being labeled a “racist!”

The Lesson of South Africa

The Lesson of South Africa
by Dr. William Pierce
We’ve spoken several times about the situation in South Africa — in particular, about the systematic murder of White farmers there by Blacks and the failure of the new Black government to stop the murders.
The slaughter continues. Since I spoke with you about this in June, another 67 White farmers or members of White farm families have been murdered in South Africa. Many of the murders have been accompanied by torture, rape, and mutilation. Altogether nearly six hundred White farmers have been murdered by Blacks in South Africa since the Whites agreed in 1993 to let the Blacks run the country. That’s one per cent of South Africa’s 58,000 White farmers. Imagine the uproar in America if one percent of any occupational group — say, White school teachers or White policemen — were brutally murdered, with racial motivations, by Blacks in a four-year period. Of course, South Africa’s White farmers are in an uproar too, but they’re receiving virtually no help from South Africa’s Black government in dealing with the problem. The government says it has too many other problems to deal with.
And indeed it does. The per capita murder rate in South Africa is now more than ten times the rate in the United States. The HIV infection rate has continued to climb, and now one in every five Black women of child-bearing age in South Africa is infected with the AIDS-causing virus. Car-jackings are up sharply. Burglaries are up. Rapes have sky rocketed. It’s a mess.
And of course, the controlled mass media in America, the mass media which were beating the drums for an end to apartheid a few years ago, the news and entertainment media here which were pushing so hard for Black rule in South Africa and telling everyone that we must bring the injustice of White rule in South Africa to an end — these media which were telling us every day before 1993 how bad things in South Africa under White rule were — these controlled mass media in America are now strangely silent about South Africa. Now they have other fish to fry.
Last week I spoke at an international conference of nationalists in Thessaloniki, Greece. One of the other speakers at the conference was the foreign secretary of the most important White nationalist group in South Africa, the Herstigte National Party. I spoke with this man, Leon Strydom, about the killing of South African farmers, and the soaring crime rate in South Africa’s cities, and the many other problems which are overwhelming White South Africans. I asked him, “What do the White South Africans who voted in 1993 to turn their country over to Black rule think about their suicidal foolishness now?”
His reply was, “But we never voted for Black rule! We never even voted to permit the Blacks to participate in elections. We only voted to continue the process of reform in which the government of F W. DeKlerk already was engaged, the process of modernization and relaxation of some of the stricter apartheid practices. We believed that this would help our relations with the rest of the world and still allow us to remain masters in our own country.”
I responded to this explanation by asking him, “But surely the voters must have understood that if they gave DeKlerk the OK to continue along his path of appeasement of the Blacks and the New World Order crowd, that would lead very soon to Black rule. They understood that, didn’t they?” And he told me that most of the voters didn’t understand that. They had believed their politicians’ promise to maintain White rule. They had not expected DeKlerk and the others to betray them.
I was at first incredulous. How could White people be so foolish? But after I had thought about it for a few minutes, I realized that the average White person, whether in South Africa or the United States, is indeed that foolish. I believe that I tend to idealize White people in other countries, I tend to give them a little more credit for intelligence and moral rectitude than I give to Americans, and that’s a mistake. The fact is that the majority of White Americans are quite capable of unwittingly voting for their own destruction, and so I should not be surprised that the Whites of South Africa did exactly that. The majority of White Americans believe the lies of their politicians and preachers, and so it shouldn’t surprise us that the Whites of South Africa did the same thing.
In South Africa there were of course the nutcase liberals and the trendy airheads who were happy to see Black rule come and who now can’t quite figure out what went wrong when the earthly paradise of equality and interracial brotherhood didn’t arrive as promised. But we have exactly the same types in the United States. They’re the ones who applaud Clinton when he gives his speech about how it will be a good thing when there is no longer a White majority in the United States in another 30 years or so, and then we can have real “diversity” and real “brotherhood.” Our job, of course, is to do whatever it takes to ensure that our airheads never have to ask themselves what went wrong here. Our job is to disempower the trendies and the liberals before they have a chance to take us beyond the point of no return and say, “oops, we made a mistake.”
As for the great mass of the people here who are unwittingly headed in the direction of White minority status, the great mass of Americans who don’t really want America to become a non-White country but who trust their politicians and their preachers and therefore are headed toward extinction anyway — as for the great mass of our people, education is the only course for us at this time. Our task is to give our people knowledge, to give them truth, and help at least some of them gather their wits and understand what is happening.
And you know, there is no more illuminating example, no better lesson for White Americans than what has happened and is happening in South Africa. That, of course, is exactly why the controlled mass media here remain silent when White South African farmers are slaughtered, when White South African women are gang-raped, and when many other very educational things happen in South Africa. So today let’s briefly talk about some more of these South African things which it would be good for White Americans to know about, to think about, to ponder.
Perhaps the most instructive aspect of the South African tragedy is the betrayal of the people by those in whom they had placed their trust: principally their church leaders and their business/military/political establishment. Let’s talk about the church first.
For the Anglo element in South Africa, the church — that would be primarily the Episcopal Church — wasn’t of fundamental importance. Most of the English-speaking population didn’t take their church very seriously, and everyone already understood that the Episcopal Church establishment was thoroughly rotten, was completely sold out. But for the Boer element, the Dutch-speaking element of the population, it was different. They really believed in their church: that’s the Dutch Reformed Church. There was what might be called a compact, a covenant, between the Dutch Reformed Church and the Boer people, and the Boers took their religion very seriously. Like most other Protestant sects, it was based heavily on the Old Testament. The Boers saw many parallels between the Old Testament pseudo-history of the Jews and their own history. They saw themselves as a Chosen People in the Promised Land and the Dutch Reformed Church as their protector and guide. And the Church to a certain degree did fill that role. The Church gave the Boers a scriptural basis for their lives, for their institutions — including the institution of apartheid — at least, up until the early 1980s.
I, of course, always have been very leery of churches in general, and I could see, as an outsider, some things in the teachings of the Dutch Reformed Church in particular which worried me: their tendency to identify with the Jews, for example. But whenever I would try to talk about my worries with South African visitors, I would be told that their church was absolutely solid. They had complete faith in their church. And of course, I didn’t want to attack their faith, so I would drop the subject.
Well of course, when the crucial time came the Dutch Reformed Church did betray the Boers. Their church sold them out. Their church held them back from putting up any real resistance to the theft of their country. Why was that?
I don’t believe that the Dutch Reformed Church in its earlier days was anything but what it pretended to be, and that was a Boer institution. I don’t believe there was any long-running conspiracy in the Church to betray the Boers. But as the Boers prospered, so did the Church. The Church’s leaders became prominent men, wealthy men. Many of the Boers’ political leaders were ordained ministers in the Dutch Reformed Church. They were comfortable men, soft around the waist. They ate well and dressed well and lived well. And when the time came to make a hard choice: a choice between their people or their own comfortable positions . . . well, they made the kind of choice that comfortable people tend to make.
The situation in South Africa at the beginning of this decade was one in which White South Africans were still quite well off, despite the efforts of the New World Order crowd everywhere else to starve them into submission with a trade embargo. The country was big enough and rich enough and with a strong enough farming and industrial base so that it was able to take care of its own needs fairly well. There was no danger at all of the African National Congress or any other Black terrorist group causing any really major problems. Dealing with Black terrorists was hardly more than an ongoing training exercise for the South African military and counter-terrorist forces. What the White South Africans should have done at that time was simply expel all Blacks, terrorists or not, from South Africa — or otherwise get rid of them — reorganize themselves as an all-White country, and tell the New World Order crowd in the United States to go to hell.
They didn’t do that, for several reasons. One reason was that South Africans had let themselves become dependent on Black labor. Urban Whites couldn’t imagine life without their Black gardeners and cooks and housemaids and their Black garbage collectors and so on. They weren’t willing to do their own dirty work. On top of that, White businessmen weren’t willing to give up their cheap Black laborers and pay White wages to White workers instead. In many cases it would have meant shutting down mines or factories, at least temporarily.
And the Dutch Reformed Church had sapped the moral strength of the Boers to the point that they just couldn’t bring themselves to do what needed to be done. For at least 11 years before 1993 the Church had been back-pedaling on its racial doctrine. The Church would have made the Boers feel guilty if they had taken the hard measures against the Blacks that were called for to ensure the future of their own people. It was easy for the Blacks to contemplate massacring the Whites — the African National Congress had the slogan “one settler, one bullet” — but the Whites could no longer contemplate massacring the Blacks without feeling guilty.
The Jews, of course, were pumping their own spiritual poison into the White population through the mass media, urging them in a thousand subtle ways to surrender rather than fight. But it was betrayal by the Boer establishment — the Boer politicians and Church leaders and big businessmen — which sealed the fate of South Africa. The comfortable people wanted to stay comfortable. They didn’t want to remain cut off from the rest of the world. They didn’t want to have to tighten their belts and give up their profits and face a prolonged lean period as the New World Order tightened its sanctions on South Africa even more.
Many of them believed the lies of the Jews that things actually would get better in South Africa if the Blacks ruled and the sanctions were lifted. And so they lied to their own people and told them that if they would just go along with DeKlerk’s plan of moderating apartheid, of reforming apartheid, then White rule would be maintained in South Africa. The Boer establishment — including the Boers’ church — put its own short-term interests above the welfare, even the survival, of the Boer people. Greed prevailed over racial loyalty and racial responsibility.
In this regard it’s interesting to note what the Dutch Reformed Church has been up to since 1993. If the Church’s leaders expected South Africa’s new Black rulers to be grateful to them for pushing their Boer constituents toward surrender, they badly miscalculated. So the Church has continued to try to accommodate itself to its new situation and somehow hold onto whatever it can. Actually, even before 1993 the Church had reversed its former doctrine and had told Boers that apartheid was a sin. The Boers at least had the gumption in 1994 to shoot the preacher, to shoot the former leader of their church, who was responsible for that change, but shooting just one traitor wasn’t enough, and the Church kept back-pedaling anyway. Last month, the Dutch Reformed Church tried to merge with a Black and mixed-race church in South Africa and open its membership to all races. The opposition of one of its provincial branches stopped the merger temporarily, but next month, or next year it will happen. And then the Dutch Reformed Church will have Black deacons and Black elders, just the way the Episcopal Church has Black bishops today.
And what about the other traitors? Well, F.W. DeKlerk was rewarded with a Nobel Peace Prize and joined the illustrious ranks of such Peace Prize winners as Henry Kissinger, Menachem Begin, Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, Elie Wiesel, and Yitzhak Rabin. Other Boer politicians also received their 30 pieces of silver and are holding down sinecures in the new government.
For the big businessmen things haven’t gone so well. The horrific crime rate, together with the government’s increasingly obvious corruption and growing inefficiency, has taken a toll. White urban professionals, no longer confident that they can protect their families, have been leaving the country in droves. This brain drain has created a critical shortage of management and other key personnel in many businesses and persuaded business owners to look for opportunities elsewhere. South Africa’s Jews, in particular, after playing a key role in scuttling the country, are clearing out. Not all of them, of course. There still are some business opportunities in South Africa. Jewish organized crime groups from the former Soviet Union have been moving part of their White slave trade to South Africa. They first bring their White slaves from eastern Europe to South Africa, and then ship them off to brothels in other countries. The new South African government looks the other way.
But in general, businessmen are leaving, and last month the largest business in South Africa, the Anglo American Corporation, announced its plans to move from Johannesburg to London early next year. The Anglo American Corporation, which used to be run by Harry Oppenheimer and is still very much under the influence of the Oppenheimer family and other wealthy Jews, was the company which more than any other pushed South Africa toward Black rule. Even the Boer businessmen in the Anglo American Corporation were in favor of Black rule. All they could think about was getting the trade sanctions against South Africa lifted so they could improve their profits. They pushed other businesses into working to dismantle apartheid also. The bosses of the Anglo American Corporation told the Boer people that apartheid was old-fashioned and unprofitable and that it had to go, that everything would be much better for the Boer people without apartheid.
And now that it hasn’t worked out that way, the Anglo American Corporation is pulling out, moving to London, where the big businessmen can remain comfortable and safe, where there is no danger of their suffering the fate of the Boer farmers whom they betrayed.
So that’s what has happened in South Africa. In America the rich and the comfortable, those who are part of the religious establishment or the business establishment or the political establishment, also have shown their false colors. The politicians in America, of course, always have been the rottenest of the rotten — at least, they have been that way since the mass media fell into the hands of the Jews.
And the Christian churches here, which even 60 or 70 years ago were still bulwarks of White American society, have fallen over each other since the Second World War in their scramble to adapt their doctrines and their practices to the Jewish party line. In the 1970s and the 1980s the churches in America were at the forefront of the institutions here pushing for Black rule in South Africa.
And, although they were a little slower than the rest to come around, America’s big businessmen — and I’m talking about White businessmen, not Jews — clearly have decided that it will be more profitable for them — at least in the short run — to join the Jews instead of fighting them. There is hardly a major corporation in America which has not decided to base its business plans on a future non-White majority in America and to adjust all of its policies accordingly. The corporate bosses may vote Republican, and they may not personally relish the idea of their grandchildren living in a non-White America — but when it comes to choosing between profits now by going with the flow, or fighting for principles in the long run, the principles come second.
So what’s the lesson for White Americans in all of this? Well, the lesson is that those who prosper from treason, or who believe that they will prosper from treason, will be traitors. There will be occasional exceptions to this rule, rare exceptions, but we’d better keep the rule itself in mind and not place our hope on the rare exceptions. If we want to survive as a people, as a race, then we must make treason unprofitable. We must make the preachers and the politicians and the corporate bosses believe that there will be no profit for them in treason. There is no other way.
Well, I’ll not carry that thought any further at this time, but you think about it — and thanks for being with me again today.

The Quiet Scourge
The New York Times, January 11, 2001
The Quiet Scourge
By Bob Herbert
The AIDS virus is surging like a prairie fire through black communities in the United States.
The epidemic is not getting anything like the attention it deserves. The Centers for Disease Control now believes that one in every 50 black American men is infected with H.I.V. That is an astonishing statistic.
AIDS is the leading cause of death for African-Americans between the ages of 25 and 44. While blacks are just 13 percent of the U.S. population, more than half of all new H.I.V. infections occur among blacks. Blacks are 10 times more likely than whites to be diagnosed with AIDS, and 10 times more likely to die from it.
This would be a good time for black Americans to say, enough.
The disease is concentrated in inner-city neighborhoods, where AIDS orphans have become ubiquitous. The suffering caused by the disease is all but unbearable. In some cases, entire families are being wiped out. You can put away the notion that AIDS is a disease that primarily affects gay white males. That story has changed. Black women, for example, are becoming infected at a frightening rate. They account for 64 percent of all new infections among women in the U.S.
One in every 160 black women is believed to be infected with H.I.V. By comparison, one in 250 white men is infected, and one in 3,000 white women.
Alarms should be clanging from coast to coast. The idea that black Americans would submit quietly to this level of devastation from AIDS — as if no lessons had been learned from the pandemic in Africa — is repellent.
“It’s an overwhelming problem in the African-American community,” said Dr. Helene Gayle, who heads the H.I.V. programs at the Centers for Disease Control. “It has continued to increase along a trajectory that we had talked about for a long time.”
There are myriad factors contributing to the spread of H.I.V. and AIDS among blacks. Information about the threat of AIDS has not been disseminated widely or effectively enough, particularly among youngsters who feel they are invulnerable. Joe Pressley, an official with the New York AIDS Coalition, told me about a 15- year-old girl who said: “Don’t tell me nothin’ about no AIDS because that won’t impact me. And if I was to get it, all I’d have to do is take a pill in the morning and I’ll be O.K.”
Intravenous drug users spread the virus among themselves by sharing needles, and pass it on to their partners through sexual contact. Other types of drug use can lead to poor judgment about sexual behavior, including the practice of trading sex for crack and other substances.
Dr. Gayle mentioned the higher rates of other sexually transmitted diseases among blacks and noted that they help fuel the spread of AIDS. And the extremely high rates of H.I.V. infection among black men — drug users and men who have sex with both men and women — have made black women especially vulnerable to infection from heterosexual contact.
Many blacks are poor and lack access not only to health care information and preventive services in general, but even to necessary treatment once they fall ill.
There was widespread denial in the black community for years about the spread of AIDS among African- Americans, in part because of the powerful stigmas attached to AIDS, homosexuality and IV drug use. Enormous numbers of blacks with the virus suffered in silence and shame, unable to tell their families or even their ministers.
At the same time, the attention of the wider public and the bulk of the services related to H.I.V. and AIDS were geared to the community of white gay men, which in the beginning was the epicenter of the problem.
Some voices are now being raised in opposition to this raging epidemic in the black community. The consciousness of the black clergy is slowly being elevated. Politicians are beginning to speak out. But voices here and there are not enough. Nothing less than a mighty chorus is needed to cope with this overwhelming tragedy — a chorus comparable in its seriousness of purpose to the civil rights movement.
Julian Bond, chairman of the N.A.A.C.P., has been trying to get out the following, absolutely crucial message: “This has become a black disease. Stop thinking about this as something that happens to somebody else. Because it happens to us.”

The Tanser Study

The Tanser Study
By Robert Thompson
We have been told that the reason that Blacks do not perform as well as Whites and Asians in school is due to “White racism” or a poor family environment, or poverty, or some other external, environmental reason. Well, we can never solve the racial problems in our schools or our society if we do not understand them, and this environmental theory of intelligence is a complete misunderstanding. It has been conclusively demonstrated that racial differences in academic performance are due mainly to heredity, not environment. One of the more interesting proofs of this is a Canadian study called the Tanser Study.
Before the Civil War in the United States there was a system by which escaped slaves were smuggled to the North. The system was called the underground railroad. I am sure you have heard of it. Now some of the people who operated the underground railroad felt it best and safest to get the freed Blacks out of the United States entirely, and so sent them up into Canada. Many of these Blacks settled around a town called Chatham, in Kent County, Ontario.
In 1939, Dr. H. A. Tanser, the superintendent of schools for Chatham, decided to do, as his doctoral thesis, a comparison of the intellectual performance of the Black students of Kent County with the performance of the Black students of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. The study became a classic. Would you believe, Dr. Tanser found that the Blacks of Kent County were as far behind the Whites of Kent County as the Blacks of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana were behind the Whites of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. After one hundred years there was no improvement in spite of integration. The question has to be asked, if the intellectual inferiority of the Black is demonstrably not a product of environment, and you claim it is not genetic, then what does cause that inferiority? Inferiority it is, beyond any question, and the educational establishment knows that, beyond any question, though the educational establishment today will never tell you about the Tanser study. Look it up. Its official title is Kent County Negroes, 1939, it was published in Chatham, Ontario, Canada and the author is H. A. Tanser, T-A-N-S-E-R.
Since the Tanser study, there have been numerous other studies. May I suggest the fine book, Black Intelligence in White Society, available for $7.50 postpaid through National Vanguard Books, as a starting place for reviewing the literature on this subject.
The results have never differed. The question is, why are we not told these facts in our newspapers, magazines, and television programs? These media constantly promote the idea of racial equality, those this equality can nowhere be found in fact. If they are so sure they are right, why do they suppress public information on the Tanser study and other studies which show that racial difference in intelligence are inherited and largely immutable. The failure to discuss these studies along with any evidence to the contrary, whenever the race issue or “civil rights” are discussed, constitutes a gross violation of intellectual honesty and a lie by omission on the part of the media and our schools. The only weapons the integrationists have in their intellectual arsenal are bookburning, brainwashing and intimidation, that is all they have, they have nothing else, and they know it. If they have anything else, where is it?

Thousands Attend Voodoo Festival

Thousands Attend Voodoo Festival
By VIRGILE AHISSOU | Associated Press Writer
OUIDAH, Benin — To the din of gongs and tambourines, thousands of voodoo believers from around the world joined a festive gathering here Friday, and urged an end to the violence afflicting several African nations.
After a ritual sacrifice of goats and chickens, voodoo chief Daagbo Hounon Houna led an incantation “for peace in Ivory Coast and the other African countries in crisis.”
Houna was surrounded by other voodoo leaders as part of Benin’s National Voodoo Day, which drew about 12,000 people, including some from the United States.
At least 60 percent of 6.3 million people of the West African nation of Benin practice voodoo — a tradition that holds, in part, that life derives from the natural forces of earth, water, fire and air.
Countless Africans shipped into slavery from this lagoon-lined strip of the south Atlantic — then called the Slave Coast — took the legacy of voodoo with them to the Caribbean, American South, and elsewhere.
Today, scores of Americans and Haitians return every year to attend the Jan. 10 festival, launched here first in 1995.
“It’s the second time that I’ve come to Benin for the festival,” explained Elizabeth McKint, a doctor from Omaha, Neb.
“I think I’ll soon become a voodoo initiate. It’s a tradition that I find more and more appealing,” McKint said.
Peace was uppermost in many visitors’ minds as a nearly four-month spate of fighting continues in Ivory Coast.
A failed September coup attempt turned rebellion has killed hundreds, driven thousands from their homes and split West Africa’s economic powerhouse into insurgent- and government-held enclaves.
For others, Benin’s voodoo festival is an excuse to dabble in the occult.
“It’s moving to live voodoo ceremonies in their original fashion,” said Kristina Gabrieli, a Portugese national living in Brazil.
“It’s more real than the movies or television.”

U.S. College Test at Center of Race Charged Debate

U.S. College Test at Center of Race-Charged Debate
By Alan Elsner, National Correspondent
WASHINGTON – As American high school students nervously await acceptance letters from colleges this month, the SAT aptitude test that is central to the admissions process is embroiled in a racially charged debate.
Reflecting the sensitivity of the issue, the name of the test itself has changed over the years. The initials SAT used to stand for Scholastic Aptitude Test. In 1990 that was changed to Scholastic Achievement Test. Six years later the College Board which administers the test, declared the initials no longer stood for anything at all.
Still, 1.3 million high school students every year take the test, which measures knowledge in English and mathematics and is a central criterion in the admissions procedures of most colleges. Colleges will be sending their final acceptance letters to students by April 1.
At the heart of the debate is the painful and politically inconvenient fact that black and Hispanic students score considerably below their Asian and white counterparts, even when their family income is similar.
University of California president Richard Atkinson set off the latest round in a long-running controversy in February when he proposed dropping the SAT for the California state college system’s 133,000 undergraduate students.
“America’s overemphasis on the SAT is compromising our educational system,” Atkinson said in a speech to the American Council on Education.
Atkinson said he had been appalled during a visit to an upscale school to see 12-year-olds drilling for a test most would only take four years later. Wealthy families often spend hundreds of dollars to enroll their children in cramming courses that guarantee to raise scores. Such opportunities are not available for poorer students.
“Many universities, faced with having to choose among thousands of highly qualified applicants, give too much weight to the SAT … Students should be judged on what they have accomplished during four years of high school, taking into account their opportunities,” Atkinson argued.
A number of other college administrators said they would consider following California’s example, though most seem determined to stick to the SAT as the only nationally accepted criterion of student achievement. Many colleges compete for high-scoring students to boost their own standings in the increasingly competitive college ranking systems.
To conservative critics, Atkinson’s arguments were merely shorthand for offering preferential treatment to minorities. California and some other states banned using racial preferences in the admissions process several years ago. As a result, some of the more elite colleges have become even whiter than before.
“The problem for African-Americans is not the SAT. It is inferior education before they get to the SAT,” wrote lawyer Stuart Taylor in the National Journal magazine.
“Beyond that, it is the terribly self-destructive disdain for academic effort (‘acting white’) manifested by many black students, including a lot of bright middle-class black students from good schools,” he wrote.
Among students entering college in 1999, blacks scored an average of 93 points below whites in the verbal section of the test. Blacks scored, on average, 106 points below whites in mathematics. Each section carries a maximum of 800 points.
Historically, the black-white test score gap narrowed between 1976 and the late 1980s. Then it began to widen again. Some researchers suggest that mounting teenage violence among blacks might have contributed to the widening of the gap at that time.
Psychologists have tried to look for reasons other than educational opportunity to explain the discrepancy and have zeroed in on what they call “stereotype threat” — a phenomenon by which a student who feels he is part of a group that has been negatively stereotyped is likely to perform less well.
For example, Stanford psychology professor Claude Steele conducted experiments in which black and white students are brought in to take a standardized test.
The first time, he tells the students that they will be taking a test to measure their verbal and reasoning ability. The second time, he tells them the test is an unimportant research tool. Steele found that the black students do less well when they are told that the test measures their abilities.
This led Time Magazine columnist Jack E. White to argue passionately that dropping the SAT test would be bad for blacks because it might strengthen the idea that they cannot compete.
“There’s simply no excuse for black youngsters with college-educated parents to perform worse than white youths whose folks only finished high school,” he wrote.
“We’ve got to believe that even at their most bigoted, whites never came up with a test blacks couldn’t ace, including the SAT. We’ve got to make second-class scholarship and low test scores as intolerable to us as second-class citizenship used to be.”

Free Speech - December 1995 - Volume I, Number 12
Welcome to Africa
Does the Chaos of Post-Colonial Africa Hold Any Lessons for America?
by Kevin Alfred Strom
What is it like to live in Black Africa? Let’s find out. I got a small taste of the reality of life in Africa when I did research for an engineering firm that was about to bid on a contract to build a radio network in Liberia.
I discovered that in Liberia the roads between the national capital, Monrovia, and the provincial capitals were not maintained and were passable only for a few months every year. Its comic-opera, one-party state was dominated by such giants of political thought as the “True Whig Party” and Sergeant Samuel Doe. Not so comic was the fact that the current government had been installed after its opponents had been taken care of by the nice expedient of taking them down to the beach and blowing their brains out with pistols. I discovered that the standards of sanitation and safety at hotels and restaurants were so low that all travelers were advised to check with a trusted local resident (meaning an American or a European) before deciding on a place to stay. I found out that the country is a sink-pit of diseases of every description. I learned that government officials and those claiming to be government officials demanded bribes at almost every stage of the process of entry or movement of people or goods into or through the country. I learned that it is advisable to be present when the goods for which you are responsible arrive at the shipping dock or the airport, for gangs of armed thieves will steal them instantly if you are not. For a suitable fee, of course, you can hire one of the gangs to protect your goods from the other gangs and hope for the best. I advised the firm I was working for not to bid on the contract.
Since I did that research in the 1980s, a prolonged civil war has broken out among several armed factions in Liberia, travel to many parts of the country has become nearly impossible, and even in the capital city most of the water, sewerage and electric lines have been inoperative since 1989.
After the European colonizers and civilizers were forced to leave due to internal subversion in the 1950s and 1960s, nearly all of sub-Sahara Africa has been gradually sinking back to the level of savagery that preceded the arrival of the Europeans. South Africa and Rhodesia, were, of course, shining exceptions to this rule. Both maintained a very high level of culture, industrial efficiency, scientific and technical progress, and the good quality of life that goes along with these things. That is, they maintained these standards until recently. When the New World Order elitists that rule the so-called “Free World” forced Rhodesia to capitulate to the Black Communist guerrillas, she quickly became a nominally Marxist dictatorship, changed her name to Zimbabwe, and began a precipitous slide downhill. Many of the White Rhodesians, abandoned by their kin in America and Europe, fled as refugees to South Africa. Many of those who did not make it were slaughtered, but you have never seen tributes to that holocaust on your television or in your movie theaters. Now that our hidden rulers have succeeded in imposing a multiracial Communist state on South Africa, it will only be a matter of time before the blood begins to really flow in earnest, and the great nation built by the Boer pioneers will either be resurrected as a White separatist state, or will disappear from history as South Africa declines into savagery.
In Rwanda, the state machinery built by the French and handed to the natives during the anti-colonialism madness three decades ago, has expired in rivers of blood. Aid workers there estimate 500,000 people have been killed by the militias and government troops since the fighting began there on April 6, 1994.
Piles of rotting corpses fill most villages. When the troops arrive in a village, their mission is simply to kill as many people as possible. The killers have not spared children and several times have attacked orphanages. There is no Geneva Convention in sub-Sahara Africa. Rwanda’s rivers are swollen, but not due to floods. Observers report that the rivers are distended by blood and heavy with thousands upon thousands of bodies. Huge numbers of bodies have washed up in Lake Victoria, hundreds of miles away.
And the Rwandan refugees, fleeing the warring forces, visit a kind of destruction of their own upon the landscape. As they sweep across the countryside, looting everything they can lay their hands on, they leave it bare, as if stripped clean by locusts. Lt. Col. Jacques Hogard of the French Army stated, “The refugees passing through are taking everything the original inhabitants left behind when they cleared out.” Whole villages have been taken apart and stolen, brick by brick. Grand lakeside villas built by the Belgians in the 1950s have literally disappeared overnight.
How many times have we seen this pattern in Africa? This isn’t the first time there has been a bloodbath in Rwanda; it happened six times in the 1960s alone. In more recent times, Liberia, Somalia, Angola, and Mozambique come immediately to mind. Remember Biafra? Remember Katanga?
And it isn’t only the process of political change in Africa which presages a return to the jungle. Let us look at what was once one of the most prosperous and productive colonies in Africa, when it was called the Belgian Congo, the country of Zaire.
Keith B. Richburg of the Washington Post Foreign Service, who can hardly be described as a White supremacist, describes Zaire’s current condition as follows:
KINSHASA, Zaire – The once elegant, European-style boulevards of this capital are overrun with debris. Largely abandoned government buildings are obscured behind elephant grass and overgrown trees. In a perverse reversal of the usual development maxim, an opulent colonial capital is being overtaken by the bush. Kinshasa was carved out of the jungle. Now the jungle is coming to claim the land back.
Richburg goes on to describe the government corruption and incompetence, the economic decline, the disease, malnutrition, and lawlessness that appear endemic to Black Africa. “In state after state, public institutions have collapsed, health care has diminished, infrastructure has fallen into disrepair, and poverty has deepened. . . .” Why has Black Africa had so little success in statecraft? The article ends with a quote that gives one reason.
“These countries are artificial,” said Michael Chege, a Kenyan scholar at Harvard University. “They have to be. What else do you do, with all these tribes and linguistic groups and so on? … We might have to consider adjusting boundaries – or at least put it on the agenda.”
I find it very interesting that we have to get such a gem of truth and wisdom, appearing in the Washington Post no less, from the mouth of a Black African. But he is right. The only hope for any people to have any kind of stable or just or successful society is for each ethnic group to control its own affairs and live under its own government.
The United States of America, by pursuing a conscious policy of multiracialism and multiculturalism, is following a dangerous path which is already resulting in racial and ethnic conflict and division. When will we learn the lesson which apparently has already been learned by a perceptive Kenyan — the lesson that disparate ethnic groups and races, when they are forced by politics to live in the same society, do not unite — they fight. When will we, as this Kenyan says, “adjust our boundaries”? After our rivers are choked with blood and bodies in a racial war which will make the Los Angeles riots look like a tennis match? Or before? Let us all look at history, let us all look at the disastrous results of artificial states like Yugoslavia, like most of Africa, and let us learn that lesson now.
And there is another important lesson we must learn. Even if by some miracle our rulers could convert America from a free White republic into a multiracial, multicultural feeding and breeding zone without creating mass violence and ceaseless ethnic conflict, we would still be faced with the incontrovertible fact that the nature of every society is determined by the nature and quality of the people who make up that society. In essence, if we import more AIDS-infected Haitians, our society becomes, bit by bit, more and more like the society those Haitians are fleeing. As we open the floodgates to the immigrants of the Third World by the millions, our society changes, slowly at first, but now faster and faster, and it becomes less and less like the America of our youth and more and more like the pestholes of disease and crime and violence of the Third World. The freedom, prosperity and high culture that we Euro-Americans have enjoyed is a very rare thing on planet Earth. It is not so much a product of our geography as it is of our blood. America is a product of the particular mentality and abilities and spirit of the peoples of European descent who founded her and built her into the greatest nation ever known. I know as much as anyone that we Euro-Americans are far from perfect. But we have raised ourselves above the level of the savage, and we have built a civilization which is the envy of the world, and we have created a governmental system which combines freedom and order in a way especially well-suited to the mentality and natural way of life ofourpeople. There is no convincing evidence that these things are suited to other peoples, or can survive their growing presence in our society. America as we have known her is a rare and precious jewel, and I want more than anything else to pass on this precious heritage to my children. But the present political establishment and the masters of the media are determined to destroy America and her great heritage in the name of World Government and multiculturalism. They are the real haters. They are the real bigots. They have no love for the races and ethnic groups which they subsidize and import to our land. Their policies will obliterate all races and cultures. You see, a polyglot and multiform assortment of peoples who are perpetually at each other’s throats are never likely to coalesce into a political force to oppose the government. Had the patriots of 1776 been a random assortment of Hindus, Africans, Arabs and Cambodian tribesmen, I think that King George would have slept much more soundly.
The first step along the road to national renewal lies with you, dear reader. We have the educational tools to awaken you, your family, and your community to the dangers faced by America today. But if we Americans do nothing, then we will be swept aside by others who are more than willing to fill the vacuum created by our apathy.
If you have not already done so, I strongly recommend that you read our outstanding book, The Best of Attack and National Vanguard. This is no ordinary book. It incorporates all of the best articles from our patriotic newspaper over a twelve-year period. It is richly illustrated and contains information and research which has been deliberately suppressed by the controlled media, information which you cannot obtain from any other source. It is a huge, 217-page, newspaper-sized book. And it is a book that can change America for the better.
The Best of Attack and National Vanguard is available from National Vanguard Books.

Why Do Black Students Lag Behind

Why Do Black Students Lag Behind?
They don’t really try, a Cal professor says – and causes a furor in academia
Rona Marech, Chronicle Staff Writer
After a yearlong sabbatical, John McWhorter is trying to return to the insulated life of academia, but the phone won’t stop ringing. A Republican in Orange County wants him to run for office; a radio station in Louisville, Ky., is interested in booking him; a black woman says he’s her hero; an older white man just wants to chat.
McWhorter, fielding calls in his University of California at Berkeley office, nods politely, but as the latest addition to a small association of high-profile black conservatives, he’s showing some signs of weariness. He no longer does local radio shows. He’s tired of hostile crowds at readings, and the insults lobbed at him in the media have left him prickly about interviews.
The attention is unexpected, McWhorter said, but critics contend that when an African American writes a book that affirms what white conservatives have been saying for decades, he’s virtually assured an audience. The most cynical suggest it’s an easy way to sell books and make money.
McWhorter insists that “Losing the Race: Self-Sabotage in Black America” (Free Press, $24), which came out in August, arose from a genuine desire to lend a service to his race. His opinions, however, are unsettling — even nefarious — to many: Racism, if not over, is greatly reduced. Black culture is “infected” with widespread anti-intellectualism. Affirmative action was a necessary evil, but has outlived its usefulness.
The reaction to the book, which McWhorter said his own mother would have hated, has been swift and loud. Articles in publications from The Weekly Standard to the Wall Street Journal and U.S. News and World Report have congratulated him for speaking the difficult truth. He’s spoken on dozens of radio programs and has been contacted by a host of black conservatives, including — he had to admit this felt glamorous — Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Meanwhile, numerous black intellectuals have dismissed the book, now in its sixth printing, as unoriginal and analytically weak.
“If a white man had written a book with shallow arguments such as these, it wouldn’t be published,” said Ishmael Reed, an author and a UC Berkeley professor of English. “I think he covers familiar territory. . . . It’s like whipping a dead horse with the stuff.”
In his quiet office at UC Berkeley, McWhorter, a linguistics professor, said: “I just wanted to get my thoughts out there. Generally, we only tend to hear one black view. If you hear the other black view, that person tends to be presented as some kind of freak.”
The intense interest in his book has been “utterly surprising and somewhat overwhelming,” he said, “but ultimately, if this is the way it’s going to have to be, then I will shoulder the burden.”
FEELING OUT OF STEP
McWhorter first rose to prominence during the 1996 ebonics showdown in Oakland. As one of the few black linguistics experts opposed to teaching black English as a second language, he was quoted frequently.
“Throughout the ’90s, I found that I never seemed to agree with most black people I knew about any race event that came up,” he said. “I felt like I was on a different planet than most black people.”
Discussions about the O.J. Simpson trial, the Million Man March and affirmative action in the UC system fueled McWhorter’s sense of alienation.
“The main thread running through all this disagreement was that even black people who had led advantaged lives such as mine, which today is many more black people than were brought up in the ghetto, their general perspective seemed to be that black Americans still remain victims. And that if it’s not a matter of signs on the water fountain, then it’s just changed in terms of quality but not in quantity. I didn’t feel this. I didn’t feel it personally, and I didn’t feel that events over the past 35 years of our history supported it.”
McWhorter’s book attempts, in part, to answer a troubling question: Why do middle-class black students continue to score lower on tests than their white peers, as a set of recent studies have indicated? That difficult question had long been taboo, because racist arguments about genetic inferiority has surfaced all too often in the past. But in recent years researchers and educators have offered other theories to explain the disparity, such as racial stereotyping or teachers’ low expectations.
The racial gap in academic achievement is the “single most important civil rights issue of our time,” said Abigail Thernstrom, co-author of the controversial book “America in Black and White: One Nation Indivisible” (Touchstone Books, $18). “If we don’t close the gap, we will never get to the point of racial equality in this country.”
In “Losing the Race,” McWhorter writes that while he has occasionally encountered racism, those incidents were inconveniences rather than obstacles to advancement. Most blacks don’t live in poverty or face overwhelming odds, he argues. But, he says, blacks who are part of a growing middle class tend to exaggerate their oppression. This “victimology” mind-set coupled with repudiation of “white” mainstream culture is what keeps them from being the best they can be in school and beyond.
In his book, McWhorter uses observation, personal anecdotes and others’ research to support his conclusions. He describes how a band of black kids tormented him for being a good speller when he was young and moves on from there.
In one of the most disturbing sections of the book, he tells story after story of black UC undergraduates he has taught who had spotty attendance records, disappeared without explanation, avoided research, were generally disengaged or flunked out.
“. . . In my years of teaching, I have never had a student disappear without explanation, or turn in a test that made me wonder how she could have attended class and done so badly, who was not African American,” he writes.
He is convinced that black people think of school as a “white” thing: “The sad but simple fact is that while there are some excellent black students, on the average, black students do not try as hard as other students. . . . All of these students belong to a culture infected with an anti-intellectual strain, which subtlely but decisively teaches them from birth not to embrace schoolwork too wholeheartedly.”
He regrets that he personally gained from affirmative action, which he compares to “an emergency measure, doing great harm for the sake of a greater good just as chemotherapy and radiation treatment are worth the benefit of killing a tumor.” Affirmative action diminishes accomplishment, he writes, and deprives black students of the incentive to reach for the highest bar. As it applies to education, he endorses Proposition 209, the 1996 voter-approved initiative that bans state and local governments from giving preference to women and minorities in contracting, hiring and college admissions.
CRITICS WEIGH IN
Critics say McWhorter has gained an undeserved spotlight, noting that books like “Shape of the River,” a comprehensive study of the positive gains of affirmative action by William G. Bowen, Derek Bok and Glenn C. Loury (Princeton University Press, $16.95), have gotten less play in the media. They say he underestimates racism and is hypocritical for taking advantagen of affirmative action and then pulling the proverbial ladder up behind him.
McWhorter generalized unfairly and sacrificed scholarly rigor, critics assert.
“It’s all based on anecdotal information,” said Manning Marable, a history professor and director of African American Studies at Columbia University. “In many real ways, it’s kind of an egocentric polemic which attributes blame and problems that are manifested in black students’ behavior to personal and cultural flaws within the black community rather than looking at the fairly unfriendly constitutional contexts in which they must be successful.
“There’s no critical analysis of institutional racism in higher education, nor is there any effort to quantify with analysis,” Marable said.
McWhorter responds that he spent eight months researching the book and that he wasn’t trying to crunch numbers. When books that dwell on racism use anecdotes, he complained, they’re trumpeted as “vivid memoirs” or “reportage from the front lines.”
Pedro Noguera, a Harvard University education professor, said McWhorter’s analysis of black progress doesn’t take into account the fragility of the black middle class or the role inheritance plays in perpetuating the wealth gap between white and black families with similar incomes.
”I think he is right to a certain degree that there is a certain anti-intellectualism that is present among many African Americans,” Noguera said. “I would argue that it’s also present among students of all kinds.” When white students slack off academically, he added, their failures are never explained in racial terms.
Noguera, who taught at UC Berkeley for a decade, said black students often sought his guidance. “When I took the time to mentor and encourage them, I saw many perform at very high levels,” he said. “The greatest harm he’s done with this book is to send the message that something is wrong with black students and black culture.”
Reed is also perplexed by McWhorter’s assessment of black students at UC. “He can say black students aren’t interested in intellectual pursuits, and I can say they are,” he said.
Though McWhorter considered pulling those damning passages, he said he decided the anecdotes illustrated his point better than statistics ever could. “Many think I’m hanging my brothers and sisters out to dry. Yeah, I know what they mean, but if I hadn’t told those stories, there wouldn’t be a debate going on right now around the country,” McWhorter said.
“He may be right, he may be wrong. We’ll argue about it for a long time,” author Abigail Thernstrom said. “But he really has focused the attention of a lot of people on that (achievement gap) question.”
LABEL DOESN’T QUITE FIT
His opponents might scoff, but McWhorter says the “conservative” label he’s been stuck with is more convenient than absolutely accurate. He’s not a registered Republican, he voted for Ralph Nader in the last two presidential elections, is decidedly pro-choice and resents being used as a football by Rush Limbaugh and his ilk. His favorite director is Spike Lee. Because he approves of class-based affirmative action in college admissions and favors using affirmative action in the business sphere, he said he’s the lefty in the group of black conservatives he’s suddenly found himself amid.
McWhorter began developing his eclectic ideology in Mount Airy, an integrated enclave of Philadelphia. His mother, who earned a doctorate in child psychology, taught social work. His father was a student activities administrator.
Later, McWhorter’s family moved to the black community of Lawnside, N.J., and at 15, the precocious teenager left home to attend Simon’s Rock College in Massachusetts, a school for high-school-age students. He received an undergraduate degree in French from Rutgers University, a master’s degree in American Studies from New York University and a linguistics doctorate from Stanford University.
A UC Berkeley fellowship eventually led to an appointment, and in 1999, he was awarded tenure. He can speak or read French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Russian, Hebrew, and at 35, he has five books behind him and the sixth, a natural history of language, is on its way.
McWhorter loves musicals and dinosaurs, has studied opera and watches a great deal of television. Though he’s unfailingly civil in explaining all this,
he’s also inscrutable. Even his smile seems contained.
“The truth is,” he said, “it’s not easy to get inside me.”
His sister, Holly McWhorter, paused when asked to describe him. “He tries hard to be a good person,” she said. “I think he has a lot of guts.”
When critics say that McWhorter is trying to escape his heritage, he is quick to point out that he grew up among black people even if he doesn’t sound like it.
“I don’t have the right voice for what I’m doing,” he said. “I’m perceived as ‘talking white.’ . . . If I could say what I’m saying with the voice of Chris Rock, my message would get across more.”
When McWhorter returned to the university classroom Jan. 17 for the first time in a year, the lecture hall where he’s teaching an undergraduate survey class in linguistics was packed.
McWhorter, obviously passionate about the material, went through the usual routine: office hours, homework, midterm, final. He gave a short lecture sprinkled with jokes and made a point of saying what the class was not about. “This will have very little do with education, politics or racial issues,” he said. “You will be disappointed if that’s what you’ve come for.”
P.J. MacAlpine, a junior, said most black students she’s talked with were incensed by McWhorter’s conclusions. She’s read articles about him and was offended by some of his opinions, but doesn’t expect politics to surface in class and chose to enroll anyway.
“I did enjoy it,” she said after the first lecture. “But a lot of people will not see that because they can’t divorce his political views from his classroom. . . . Will he assume those things of them? That’s uncomfortable.”
McWhorter is concerned that black students might despise him or avoid his classes, but said he’s willing to suffer that reputation. He wishes he had made it clearer that many of his arguments don’t apply to black students admitted to UC Berkeley after Proposition 209 went into effect. Otherwise, he has no regrets.
“Black people all know about this,” he said. “It’s very easy to talk about at a black barbecue, but the idea is that when the mike is on, you’re not supposed to talk about it.”
Hundreds of supportive black and white readers have written, e-mailed or called him, he said, and, if anything, he’s only grown more resolved. “I think I’m right,” he said. “I am right. I know I’m right. They’re wrong. It’s so plain. They can no more hurt me than they can tell me the sky is fuchsia.”

Why Is Africa Poor

Why Is Africa Poor?
Just as American blacks blame whites for their failures, Africans deny responsibility
for the misery they bring on themselves.
By William Robertson Boggs
Black Africa is the poorest part of the world by far. It is in Africa that we find countries like Zaire, Ethiopia, Chad, and the Sudan, where gross national product per person is less than $200 a year. The 41 nations of sub-Saharan Africa produce no more wealth than the tiny country of Belgium, which has only one forty-fifth as many people. Of all of the region’s economic production, white-run South Africa accounts for three quarters.
Numbers like these mean that Africans live in misery so desperate that Americans can scarcely imagine it. Every year, thousands of Africans die of starvation. In bad years, hundreds of thousands starve. Even in tropical parts of Africa untouched by famine, as many as one third of all children die before the age of five. One in a hundred births kills the mother. Malaria, sleeping sickness, hepatitis, leprosy, and AIDS are rampant.
Nevertheless, the population of Africa grows faster than that of any other region of the world. The total number of children, grand children, and great-grand children that the average American woman will have is 14. The equivalent figure for the average African woman is 258! Despite the ravages of disease, starvation, and inter-tribal warfare, Africa’s population increases by more than three percent a year. At that rate, populations can double in 20 years.
Why is Africa poor? The standard explanations blame anyone but the Africans. Colonization by whites, it is said, kept Africa poor. The slave trade depleted the continent and impoverished it. Multinational corporations plundered it.
Just as blacks in America seek to explain their own failings by blaming them on whites, Africans explain their own poverty by blaming Europe. Recently, this is how a broadcast on Somalia’s state-owned radio attacked the BBC for reporting uncomplimentary facts:
The colonial bogeyman still lives
The argument that colonization accounts for Africa’s poverty is so easily refuted that it should have gone out of currency long ago. That it has not can be attributed only to the apparently endless capacity of whites to accept arguments that paint them as villain. There is no reason to think that, left to themselves, Africans would have risen from the primitive conditions in which Europeans found them.
To believe that colonization thwarted the economic development of Africa is to believe that indigenous societies were on their way towards prosperity but were brutally shoved off course by Europeans. In fact, African societies south of the Sahara that had not had contact either with Europeans or with Middle Eastern traders showed no signs of modern development. No pre-contact African society had devised a written language or had discovered the wheel. None had a calendar, or built multi-story buildings. No African had learned how to domesticate animals. The smelting of iron was widespread, as was fire-hardened pottery, but the continent did not produce anything that could be called a mechanical device.
Africans had no concept of the biological origins of disease, and attributed personal misfortunes to the work of evil spirits. Slavery was widely practiced, and deeply rooted in Africa long before the arrival of Europeans. There is no reason to think that, left to themselves, Africans would have risen from the primitive conditions in which Europeans found them.
The European slave trade, though unquestionably harmful to Africa, was hardly the depopulating scourge it is often made out to be. When the 15th century Portuguese began sailing down the coast, they met long-established slave traders keen to sell off surpluses. Europeans almost never went on slaving expeditions into the interior. They bought slaves from dealers, which means that slaves taken from Africa were first enslaved by other Africans.
At the same time, Europeans introduced two New World staples that could be stored — cassava and corn — revolutionizing the African food supply. The sudden increase in population more than made up for losses to the European slave trade which, in any case, ended by the middle of the 19th century.
It was trade with Europeans that introduced modernity to iron-age Africa. Far from hobbling and holding the continent back, colonization laid the foundations for whatever evidence of economic progress can now be found in Africa. It was Europeans who built roads and rail lines, introduced piped water, schools and telecommunications, and built national administrations. Nothing suggests that Africans would have achieved any of this on their own.
There is no question but that life for Africans improved steadily under colonization. By the 1960s, when most of Africa became independent, the region exported food. Now, it devours more than $1 billion a year in Western food aid, and thousands still starve.
It is possible to argue that Africans might have been better off if they had been left entirely alone. This is to take a romantic view of the disease, tribal warfare, slavery, and ignorance that were widespread on the continent. Moreover, no African group that has glimpsed the possibilities of Western progress has opted to return to purely African primitivism. This suggests that Africans themselves would rather have the benefits of Western technology than do without them. Given that people naturally yearn for medical advance and material progress, colonization was an obvious and striking benefit to Africa.
The benefits are particularly clear in any comparison of those parts of Africa that were colonized with those that were not. Ethiopia remained independent except for a brief occupation by Italy during the 1930s. It is the poorest country on the continent, with an annual per capita gross national product (GNP) of $130. Eritrea, which was absorbed by Ethiopia after the Second World War, had been an Italian colony for 50 years. It is more advanced in every way. Though it has only three percent of Ethiopia’s population, it has 30 percent of its industry. It recently won a decades-old war of independence against Ethiopia.
An equally stark contrast can be found in West Africa. Ivory Coast, heavily colonized by the French, is much better developed than neighboring Liberia, which was founded by freed American slaves in 1822. Liberians, apparently unaware of the political heresy they are uttering, freely attribute the miserable state of their country to its having gone without “the benefits of colonization.”
The Decline Since Independence
What about Africa since independence? During the first few years, while some European procedures were still being followed, the standard of living in Africa continued to improve. It is in the last 20 years, during which Africans themselves have shaped their own nations, that conditions have deteriorated spectacularly. Virtually without exception, Africans have failed to build modern economies.
In the last dozen years, per capita GNP has fallen every year in Africa. By 1989, per capita food production in Africa was only three quarters what it had been in 1970. In 1985, an estimated 25 percent of African pre-school children suffered from acute protein deficiency. Only five years later, an estimated 40 percent did.
It is not as though Africa has been neglected by white countries. Since the 1960s, they have poured more than $300 billion in aid into the continent. Tanzania, a favorite target for Scandinavian largess, received $8.6 billion between 1970 and 1988 — more than four times its 1988 GNP. By that year, Tanzania’s annual per capita GNP was a pitiful $160, lower than at independence in 1961.
Obviously, it is much easier for undeveloped nations to copy the tried and tested technology of nations that have gone before. They need not invent telephones or electric power generators. They need only install and maintain what Europeans have invented. Africans cannot or will not.
Mobutu the Messiah
Often African “leaders” are outright pirates whose only interest is in enriching themselves and their cronies. Zaire’s Mobutu Sese Seku is perhaps the worst. He has been in power since 1965, and has looted the country of an amount estimated to be between two and ten billion dollars. Either figure would make him one of the richest men in the world. He owns chateaus or estates in France, Belgium, Switzerland, and Ivory Coast. He has 11 palaces in Zaire itself, including one in his home village of Gbadolite that is so lavish it is known as the Versailles of the Jungle. Mr. Mobutu likes to be called “Messiah,” and has worked up a personality cult for his hotel-maid mother that rivals that of the Virgin Mary.
Zaire, which is blessed with diamonds, gold, silver, copper, and uranium, should be one of the richest countries in the world. Today it has a per capita annual GNP of $180. The World Bank has calculated that from 1973 to 1985, per capita income fell by 3.9 percent every year, and is now one tenth what it was in 1960 when the country became independent of Belgium.
Rarely do African leaders show the slightest evidence that they have any concern for their people.
Zaire has not built a hospital in 20 years. In the ones that still remain, nurses and doctors must be bribed to do their work. Road maintenance is so primitive that the 1,100-mile drive from the Atlantic to Zaire’s eastern border that used to take two days now takes three weeks. In the rainy season, the trip may be impossible. Reliable electricity and plumbing are hazy memories from the colonial past.
Rarely do African leaders show the slightest evidence that they have any concern for their people. Consider Madagascar. When the French controlled the island, they nearly succeeded in wiping out the malaria mosquito. When the Malagasies were given independence, they let public health programs fall into decay. By 1988, when 100,000 people had died of the disease in just six months, the national malaria-control laboratory owned one Bunsen burner and two old microscopes. The Swiss government, under World Bank auspices, has offered to donate 300 million tablets of anti-malarial drugs — enough to treat the entire population for two years — but the Madagascar government insists on selling them rather than handing them out free. This ensures that most people won’t get them and that a few government officials will get even richer than they already are.
In the Sudan, where starving people are so desperate that they sell their children into slavery, government authorities refuse to let western relief agencies operate unless they pay fat bribes. Even then, aid convoys are often attacked and pillaged by government soldiers who then sell relief supplies for their own profit.
In Zambia, the percentage of government spending that goes to education dropped from 19 percent in 1972 to 8 percent in 1987, even though the number of students doubled. Zambia’s president, Kenneth Kaunda, has stolen so much of the state budget that he is estimated to be worth as much as $6 billion. In the capital, Lusaka, only an estimated one half of city employees actually work.
Ivory Coast is putting the finishing touches on a $280 million Catholic cathedral made of marble, ivory, and gold. By papal request, the cupola will stand a few feet lower than that of St. Peter’s in Rome, but Our Lady of Peace will still be able to accommodate 300,000 worshipers at a time. The cathedral is located, not in the capital, but 130 miles inland in the home village of former president Houphouet-Boigny. By strange coincidence, the nation’s only divided highway also runs to the same village, though it has little commerce with the capital. Upon his death, Mr. Houphouet-Boigny intends to be laid to rest, amid much pomp and official mourning, beneath Our Lady’s dome.
Ivory Coast, on which France has lavished not only a great deal of aid but thousands of technical advisors, is, relatively speaking, an African success story. Nevertheless, its merchant class is almost exclusively Lebanese, and extravagances like the cathedral have forced the government to default on its international obligations.
When African governments are not openly plundering their people, they are simply incompetent. Sierra Leone, which should be rich from its gold, diamonds, and fertile farm land, is nearly as much of a disaster as deserts like Chad or the Central African Republic. The currency, the leone, has been so unstable that farmers smuggle their produce out for sale in Ivory Coast. In 1987, diamond traders found they had to pay so many near-worthless leones for diamonds that they began to withdraw currency from banks by the truckload. When this happens, most governments simply print more banknotes. Sierra Leone, which has its currency printed in England, didn’t even have enough money to pay for paper and ink. Currency disappeared, and the economy temporarily reverted to barter.
In Africa, natural wealth seems only to increase the scale of national follies. Nigeria, an oil producer and member of OPEC, is wasting a fortune trying to build a steel industry. The site the Nigerians have chosen is far away from iron ore, coking coal, or transport routes.
At the same time, government-subsidized gasoline sells for about 40 cents a gallon — the cheapest price in the world — so Nigerians waste fuel and import more cars than the economy can afford. Tanker loads of artificially cheap gasoline are smuggled out for sale in neighboring countries. Waste in the oil industry is so great, that Nigeria cannot meet its OPEC export quota. Twenty years from now, when Nigeria has pumped its oil wells dry, it will have little to show for them.
Africa and AIDS
One disservice that many African governments do their people is to deny that AIDS is ravaging their countries. Zimbabwe’s is one of the worst. Though no one knows for sure, a quarter of the adult population — millions of people — may be infected, but the government officially reported only 499 cases of AIDS in 1989. At the central hospital of Harare, the capital, AIDS kills more children than any other disease. Still, government authorities refuse to recognize the problem or disseminate public health information. When criticized for its silence, the state-controlled press complained about “the slurs on Africans brought about by the West’s obsessive determination to blame AIDS on Africa.”
In the mean time, Africans continue to infect each other at a great rate. For reasons that are not entirely understood, many Africans seem to get AIDS through heterosexual intercourse. Rich Africans are often very promiscuous, so the millions who will be dying over the next decade will be from the upper classes. One doctor estimates that 80 percent of Zimbabwe’s best-paid men are infected. AIDS could put an end to Africa’s rocketing population growth and even cause a serious decline, beginning around the year 2010.
Just as Western governments and aid agencies refuse to criticize African dictators for fear of being called “racist,” the Western press is squeamish about reporting African savagery. In April 1991, Muslims and Christians in northern Nigeria started a small war against each other that may have left as many as one thousand dead. The streets of the town of Bauchi were littered with decapitated corpses, but few Americans ever heard about it.
The press prefers to skip lightly over news of this kind, to avoid complaints from American blacks about ‘negative stereotypes.’
In the summer of 1988, the majority Tutsis of Burundi sent in the army to slaughter some 5,000 minority Hutu tribesmen. This was a repetition of a similar exercise in 1972, when Tutsi soldiers killed an estimated 100,000 unarmed Hutu. Neither event got much attention. In 1991, when Liberian rebel leaders captured the former president, Samuel K. Doe, they first tortured him to death. Then they carved off his lips, ears, and genitals and put his body on public display.
The press prefers to skip lightly over news of this kind, to avoid complaints from American blacks about “negative stereotypes.” Of course, if white South African police shoot into a menacing crowd of blacks, it is front-page news.
Except for South Africa, whose government seeks the consent of the (white) electorate, and for one or two newcomers to democracy like Botswana, African governments rule by brute force. Since 1957, there have been 150 African heads of state, but only six gave up power voluntarily. All the rest died in office, were murdered, or were thrown out in military coups. In virtually every African country, the people who rule are the people who own the weapons. This explains why African countries spent $2.2 billion on imported weapons in 1983 while they spent only $1.7 billion on medical care. Until it was overthrown in 1991, the Ethiopian government was spending 60 percent of its revenue on the military.
Why, then, is Africa poor? For anyone who has looked into the question, there seems to be little doubt that Africans have brought misery upon themselves. Whether it be in Africa, Haiti, or Washington (DC) (see book review, this page), Africans show little evidence of an ability to organize and run a modern economy. Just as blacks have made wastelands of those parts of the United States in which they are a majority and over which they exercise authority, so have Africans desolated a continent bursting with riches.
Of course, it is not permissible to conclude that this is because of natural, genetic handicaps from which blacks suffer, so anti-white arguments inevitably rush in to fill the explanatory void. Blacks the world over, whether they live only among themselves or among people of other races, are said to lead lives of failure and misery only because whites have oppressed them in the past and continue to oppress them in the present. It makes no difference that this explanation falls apart under scrutiny; it is the only one that is permitted because the alternative does not conform to current political dogma.
There can be no pleasure in saying so, but the facts point to one conclusion. Whether in Africa or America, Haiti or Great Britain, blacks are poor because they are, for the most part, incapable of lifting themselves from poverty. Africa is poor, just as Harlem is poor, because it is populated by Africans.

Whites & blacks 100 Facts (and One Lie)
Whites & Blacks 100 FACTS (and one Lie)
By Roger Roots
Senator Bilbo’s Warning
“If our buildings, our highways, and our railroads should be wrecked, we could rebuild them. If our cities should be destroyed, out of the very ruins we could erect newer and greater ones. Even if our armed might should be crushed, we could rear sons who would redeem our power. But if the blood of our White race should become corrupted and mingled with the blood of Africa, then the present greatness of the United States of America would be destroyed and all hope for civilization would be as impossible for a Negroid America as would be redemption and restoration of the Whiteman’s blood which had been mixed with that of the Negro.”
(Senator Theodore G. Bilbo, of Mississippi in 1947)
In the pages of this booklet are found 100 facts, the vast majority of which can be easily verified in any set of encyclopedias, almanacs, psychology text, and other reference materials commonly found in any public library.
Cleverly hidden within these hundred facts, for added incentive to read onward, is one lie. not a lie of statistical or grammatical error, but a ludicrous falsehood at once so absurd as to strike the reader as an insult to human intelligence, and yet so deadly evil that if allowed to go unanswered its final cost would be incalculable. I sincerely pledge that my motivations are not of insult or hatred, but of the deepest love for mankind and the truest concern for its future generations. my purpose is not to deceive but to enlighten, and I hope this work will help you reflect and reexamine your views on race.
FACT #1: The White race has crossed seas, harnessed rivers, carved mountains, tamed deserts, and colonized the most barren icefields. It has been responsible for the invention of the printing press, cement, the harnessing of electricity, flight, rocketry, astronomy, the telescope, space travel, firearms, the transistor, radio, television, the telephone, the lightbulb, photography, motion pictures, the phonograph, the electric battery, the automobile, the steam engine, railroad transportation, the microscope, computers, and millions of other technological miracles. It has discovered countless medical advances, incredible applications, scientific progress, etc. Its members have included such greats as Socrates, Aristotle, Plato, Homer, Tacitus, Julius Ceaser, Napoleon, William the Conqueror, Marco Polo, Washington, Jefferson, Hitler, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Magellan, Columbus, Cabot, Edison, GrahamBell, Pasteur, Leeuwenhoek, Mendel, Darwin, Newton, Galileo, Watt, Ford, Luther, Devinci, Poe, Tennyson, and thousands upon thousands of other notable achievers. (37) (39)
FACT #2: Throughout 6,000 years of recorded history, the Black African Negro has invented nothing. Not a written language, weaved cloth, a calendar, a plow, a road, a bridge, a railway, a ship, a system of measurement, or even the wheel. (Note: This is in reference to the pure-blooded Negro.) He is not known to have ever cultivated a single crop or domesticated a single animal for his own use (although many powerful and docile beasts abounded around him.) His only known means of transporting goods was on the top of his hard burry head. For shelter he never progressed beyond the common mud hut, the construction of which a beaver or muskrat is capable. (21) (39)
FACT #3: The I.Q.’s of American Negroes are from 15 to 20 points, on average, below those of American Whites. (26) (16) (18) (22)
FACT #4: These Black\White differences have been demonstrated repeatedly by every test ever conducted by every branch of the U.S. Military, every state, county, and local school board, the U.S. Dept. of Education, etc. The same ratio of difference has held true over a 40 year period. (18) (26) (24)
FACT #5: With an average I.Q. of 85, only 16% of Blacks score over 100, while half the White population does. The Negro overlap of White median I.Q.’s ranges from 10 to 25 percent– equality would require 50 percent. (31) (27) (16)
FACT #6: Blacks are 6 times as likely to have I.Q.’s of 50 to 70 which put them in the slow learner (retarded) category, while Whites are ten times more likely to score 130 or over. (15) (16) (18) (23)
FACT # 7: The U.S. government’s PACE examination, given to 100,000 university graduates who are prospective professional or administrative civil-service employees each year, is passed with a score of 70 or above by 58% of the whites who take it but by only 12% of the Negroes. Among top scorers the difference between Negro and White performance is even more striking: 16% of the white applicants make scores of 90 or above, while only one-fifth of one percent of a Negro applicants score as high as 90–a White/Black success ration of 80/1. (27)
FACT #8: Differences between Negro and White children increase with chronological age, the gap in performance being largest at the high school and college levels. (31) (26)
FACT #9: White/Negro I.Q. differences are constantly excused as results of environmental variations. but at least five studies that have attempted to equate socio-economic backgrounds of the two races indicate no significant change in relative results. As environment improves, the Negro does better but so does the White. The gap is not decreased. (26) In fact, extensive research by DR. G.J. McGurk, associate Professor of Psychology at Villanove University, reveals that the gap in intelligence between Blacks and Whites INCREASES where socio-economic levels of both races are raised to the middle classes. (18)
FACT #10: In 1915, Dr. G.W. Ferfuson took 1000 school children in Virginia, divided them into 5 racial categories, and tested them for mental aptitude. On average. full-blooded Negroes scored 69.2% as high as Whites. Three-quarter Negroes scored 73.0% as high as Whites. One-half Negroes scored 81.2% as high as Whites. One-quarter Negroes scored 91.8% as high as Whites. All of these Blacks lived as and considered themselves “Negroes.” Their environments and “advantages” or disadvantages were exactly the same. (14) Also see (26) pg 452.
FACT #11: Results of the Army Beta test given by the U.S. Army to over 386,000 illiterate soldiers in WWI showed Negro draftees to be “inferior to the Whites on all types of tests used in the Army.” Additionally, tests were conducted upon pure Negroes, Mulattoes, and Quadroons. It was found that “the lighter groups made better scores.” (14)
FACT #12: Studies conducted with identical twins raised apart in radically different environments provide conclusive evidence that over-all influence of heredity exceeds that of environment in a ratio of about 3 to 1. (41)
FACT #13: Even when Blacks and Whites have the same backgrounds, in terms of family income and childhood advantages, Blacks still have average I.Q. scores 12 to 15 points lower than comparable Whites. This includes cases where Black children have been adopted by White parents. Their I.Q.s may be improved by environment, but they are still closer to their biological parents than their adoptive parents. (3) (15) (26)
FACT #14: Equalitarian ideologists often discount I.Q. test results with the excuse that they are culturally biased. Nonetheless, NO ONE, not the NAACP nor the United Negro College Fund, nor NEA had been able to develop an intelligence test which shows Blacks and Whites scoring equally. (15) (42) (3)
FACT # 15: American Indians, who often live in conditions far worse than American Blacks during their entire lives, still consistently outscore them on I.Q. tests. (3) (27)
FACT #16: The offspring of interracial marriages tend to have lower I.Q.s than the white parent. (11) (26)
THE NEGRO BRAIN
FACT #17: Among human races numerous studies have been made of the comparative weight of White and Negro brains with results that fell within the range of about an 8-12 percent lower weight for the Negro brain. Such studies have been conducted by Bean, Pearl, Vint, Tilney, Gordon, Todd, and others. (23) (27)
FACT #18: In addition to the difference in brain weight, the Negro brain grows less after puberty than the white. Though the Negro brain and nervous system mature faster than the white brain, its development is arrested at an earlier age which limits further intellectual advancement. (22) (27)
FACT #19: The thickness of the supragranular layer (the outside layer) of the Negro brain is about 15 percent thinner, and its convolutions are fewer and more simple, on average, than that of the White brain. (9)
FACT #20: The frontal lobes of the Negro brain, responsible for abstract conceptional reasoning, are smaller relative to body weight, less fissured, and less complex than those of the White brain. (9) (27) (23) (22)
FACT #21: The name Homo sapien was first used by the 18th Century Swedish botanist Carolus Linnaeus. The word “sapien” means “wise.” The name was originally used to speak of the White man and synonymous with “europaeus.” As a result, many later taxonomists and geneticists believed that Negroes and other races should be classified as different species. In fact, Darwin declared in The Descent of Man that the varieties of mankind are so distinct that similar differences found in any other animal would warrant their classification in different species, if not different genera. (39)
FACT #22: For his mammoth work, The Origin of Races, Professor Carleton Coon, President of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists and the premier geneticist of the world, assembled massive evidence from geography, anatomy, genetics, physiology, comparative dentition, linguistics, archeology, and fossil records from 300 bone-bearing sites to verify his theory of pre-sapien racianation.” In other words, Homo erectus was divided by race even before evolution into Homo sapien stage. (12)
FACT #23: According to Dr. Coon, while the Caucasoid subspecies (the White race) was evolving in Europe, the Negro race was standing still on the evolutionary plane and is today no less than 200,000 years behind the European in skull and brain development. (9)
FACT #24: The Negro skull, in addition to having a smaller brain volume and thicker cranial bones than that of the White, is prognathous; i.e., the lower face projects forward, rather in the manner of an animal’s muzzle. In consequence, the Negro jaw is substantially longer, relative to its width, than the White jaw. A feature of the Negro lower jaw is its retention of a vestige of the “simian shelf,” a bony region immediately behind the incisors. The simian shelf is a distinguishing characteristic of apes, and it is absent in Whites. (9) (12) (39)
FACT #25: The skin of the Negro is thicker and possibly superior to the White’s in the way it impedes the penetration of germs and in its protection from the ultraviolet rays of the sun. (39) (14)
FACT #26: The dark color of the Negro is due to melanin pigment which is spread through every layer of the skin and is found even in the muscles and brain. (9) (27)
FACT #27: An African dentist can tell a Negro’s tooth from a white man’s at a glance. (14)
FACT #28: Negroes have arms which are longer, relative to body height, than those of Whites. This feature, together with their much thicker cranial bones, gives Black athletes an advantage over Whites in boxing. The skeletal and muscular peculiarities of Negroes’ lower limbs have given them considerable success as sprinters, but have left them relative undistinguished as distance runners. (39) (27)
FACT #29: ADDITIONAL DIFFERENCES
The hair is black, crispy, and “woolly” in texture, it is flat and elliptical with no central canal or duct like the hair of Europeans.
The nose is thick, broad and flat, often turned up nostrils exposing the red inner lining of the mucous membrane similar to an ape.
The arms and legs of the Negro are relatively longer than the European. The humerus is a trifle shorter and the forearm longer thereby approximating the simian form.
The eyes are prominent, iris black and the orbits large. The eye often has a yellowish sclerotic coat over it like that of a gorilla.
The Negro has a shorter trunk the cross-section of the chest is more circular than whites. The pelvis is narrower and longer as it is in an ape.
The mouth is wide with very thick, large and protruding lips.
Negro skin has a thick superficial horny layer which resists scratching and impedes the penetration of germs.
The Negro has a larger and shorter neck akin to that of anthropoids.
The cranial sutures are more simple than in the white type and close together earlier.
The ears are roundish, rather small, standing somewhat high and detached thus approaching the simian form.
The Negro is more powerfully developed from the pelvis down and the white more powerfully developed in the chest.
The jaw is larger and stronger and protrudes outward which, along with lower retreating forehead, gives a facial angle of 68 to 70 degrees as opposed to a facial angle of 80 to 82 degrees for Europeans.
The hands and fingers are proportionally narrower and longer. The wrist and ankles are shorter and more robust.
The frontal and paricial bones of the cranium are less excavated and less capacious. The skull is thicker especially on the sides.
The brain of the Negro on the average is 9 to 20% smaller than whites.
The teeth are larger and are wider apart than in the white race.
The three curvatures of the spine are less pronounced in the Negro than in the white and thus more characteristic of an ape.
The femur of the Negro is less oblique, the tibia (shin bone) more curved and bent forward, the calf of the leg high and but little developed.
The heel is broad and projecting, the foot long and broad but slightly arched causing flat soles, the great toe is shorter than in the white.
The two bones proper of the nose are occasionally united, as in apes.
FACT #30: Blood group studies made during WWII suggest the American Negro gene pool is about 28% white. –This despite all manner of institutional discrimination, social segregation, etc. Keep in mind that the results of test from true Black Africans would show even bigger differences from Whites. (32) (14)
FACT #31: The rate at which Blacks commit murder is thirteen times that of Whites; Rape and assault, ten times. These figures, as given by the F.B.I. reports, vary somewhat from year to year but fairly represent the trend for the past decade. (27) (6) (13)
FACT #32: According to the justice Dept, 1 in every 4 Black males between the ages of 20 and 29 is currently in prison or on probation or parole. (32) (6) (3)
FACT #33: Though only 12% of the U.S. population, Blacks commit more than half of all rapes and robberies and 60% of all murders in the U.S. (32) (27) (6)
FACT #34: Approximately 50% of all Black males will be arrested and charged with a serious felony during their lifetime. (27)
FACT #35: A Black person is 56 TIMES more likely to attack a White person than Vice Versa. (3) (32)
FACT #36: Black rapists choose White victims over half (54.9%) of the time, 30X as often as Whites choose Blacks. (2) (32) (28)
FACT #37: The annual report from the Department of justice shows that when Whites commit violence they do it to Blacks 2.4% of the time. Blacks, on the other hand, choose White victims MORE THAN HALF the time. (3)
FACT #38: In New York City, any White is over 300 TIMES MORE LIKELY to be assaulted by a gang of Blacks than is a Black by a gang of Whites. (32)
FACT #39: Many people argue that high Black incarceration rates show that police center enforcement at Black crimes and ignore white-collar crimes. However, Blacks commit a disproportionate number of white-collar offenses as well. In 1990, Blacks were nearly 3 times as likely to be arrested for forgery, counterfeiting, and embezzlement as Whites. (32) (6)
FACT #40: Many people believe that crime is a product of poverty and lack of “advantages.” However, the District of Columbia, which enjoys the highest average annual salaries and is second only to Alaska in personal income per capita, leads the nation in just about every category of crime including murder, robbery, aggravated assault, and vehicle theft. D.C. also has the country’s strictest gun control, highest police costs per capita, highest ration of police and correctional officers per citizen, and highest rate of incarceration. Its permanent population is over 80% Black. West Virginia, which has the nation’s lowest crime rate, suffers from chronic poverty and has the highest unemployment in the U.S. It also has the fewest police per capita. West Virginia is over 96% White. (33)
THE BLACK FAMILY
FACT #41 46% of inner city Black men between the ages of 16 and 62 are unemployed. (27)
FACT #42: More than 66% of the children of Negroes are born out of wedlock. Per capita, their illegitimacy rate is ten times that of Whites. (32) (27)
FACT #43: Blacks are four and a half times more likely than Whites to be on welfare. (32)
FACT #44: More than 35% of all Black men in U.S. Cities are drug or alcohol abusers. (27)
FACT #45: The January l986 issue of the journal of Ethnic and Racial Studies, “Skin Color Preference, Sexual Dimorphism and Sexual Selection: a case of Gene-Culture Co-evolution?” by Peter Frost and Pierre Van der Herghe, stated that in any given race, the women tend to have lighter complexions than the men. Using standard ethnographic files from 51 societies on five continents which have recorded their preference for human skin color, the study found that 30 preferred lighter women and 14 preferred lighter women and lighter men. The cultures of India, China, Brazil and Bali, as well as the Arabs and Negroes regard the lightest women as the most beautiful. –perpetuating the aesthetic appeal of the ivory-skinned, rosy-cheeked, blue-eyed, blond “nordic ideal” of feminine beauty- -even though they themselves do not possess the genetic capacity to reproduce such an organism. Over time, the study said, the upper classes of all races have become lighter-skinned than their fellow countrymen because they have repeatedly skimmed off fairer women from the lower classes. (Also see #11)
FACT #46: Scientific research on what constitutes human beauty, in which 300 judges of various backgrounds were shown portrait photographs and asked to rate the beauty of the individual’s face, has revealed that nordic Whites are universally recognized as the most attractive humans, even by Blacks. The judges were instructed to evaluate the faces solely on his or her “personal standards of beauty and not to consider popular norms.” The results of the study “Age, Sex, Race, and the Perception of Facial Beauty.” Developmental Psychology, 5, Nov., 1971, pp 433-439, are reprinted below.

FACT #47: In experiments in which Black children have been left to themselves with White and Black dolls, it has been found tha most of the them would rather play with White dolls. This is true all over the world. Even in such places as Tobago. (32) (22) (23)
FACT #48: The Declaration of Independence, which contains the oft-repeated phrase “. . . all men are created equal . . .” was written by Thomas Jefferson, who owned about 200 slaves at the time and never set any of them free, including the mulattoes and quadroons. Jefferson’s words certainly had no reference to Negroes, who at that time had no place in American society except as property. (27) (38) (31)
FACT #49: The Constitution was written by and for ‘We the people” and dedicated to “ourselves and our posterity,” All of the 55 delegates that met in Philadelphia to draft the Constitution and all of the members of the 13 state conventions that ratified it were of the White race. (38)
WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY OF 1828 defines Posterity as: POSTERITY. 1. Descendants; children, children’s children, etc. indefinitely; the race that proceeds from a progenitor. 2. In a general sense, succeeding generations; opposed to ancestors. . .
FACT #50: The 14th Amendment is invalid for the following reasons:
It was never ratified by three-fourth of all the States in the Union according to Article 5 of the U.S. Constitution. Out of 37 States, 16 had rejected it.
Many of the States who were counted as ratifying it, were compelled to do so under duress of military occupation. Any legal act entered into under force duress, and coercion is automatically null and void.
The fact that 23 Senators had been unlawfully excluded from the U.S. Senate, shows that the Joint Resolution proposing the Amendment was not submitted to or adopted by a constitutional Congress.
The intent of the 14th Amendment is repugnant to the original U.S. Constitution and the Organic Law of the land. It did not, and could not, repeal anything that was part of the Organic Law. Therefore the principles of precedent and stare decisis render it void. (23)
FACT #51: In Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation of Sept. 1862 he said: “I have urged the colonization of the Negroes, (back to Africa), and I shall continue. My Emancipation Proclamation was linked with this plan (of colonization). There is no room for two distinct races of White men in America, much less for two distinct races of Whites and Blacks. . . . I can think of no greater calamity than the assimilation of the negro into our social and political life as our equal . . . Within twenty years we can peacefully colonize the Negro . . . under conditions in which he can rise to the full measure of manhood. This he can never do here. We can never attain the ideal union our fathers dreamed, with millions of an alien, inferior race among us, whose assimilation is neither possible nor desirable.” (27)
FACT #52: Lincoln actually proposed an amendment to the constitution that would’ve authorized congress to recolonize all freed Blacks back to Africa. On Aug. 15, l962, Congress did appropriate over half a million dollars for that purpose. Thousands of Negroes had been shipped back when Lincoln was shot. (27)
FACT #53: The District of Columbia, which is approximately 70% Black, leads the U.S. in many areas:
The nations highest crime rates
Strictest gun control
Highest incarceration rates
Highest death rate
Highest rate of federal assistance per capita
Highest number of welfare recipients per capita
Highest rate of illegitimacy
Highest high school dropout rate even though its teachers are the highest paid in the U.S.
Highest rate of ghonnorrhea and syphilis
Highest incidence of AIDS (33) (32)
FACT #54: Populated by White stock, the nation of Portugal rose in four centuries to be the wealthiest most powerful country in the world. A great commercial and maritime power, it had large colonies in Asia, Africa, and America. Its seamen were the first to explore western Africa and they brought back hundreds of Negro slaves. By 1550, at the height of Portugal’s power, one-tenth of its population were Blacks. Today, Portugal’s population is described as one of the most homogeneous in Europe, having slowly absorbed the Negro gene pool. As of l975 it had lost all of its outside territories. Its workers are the lowest paid in Europe and they have the highest rate of illiteracy and a high infant mortality rate. In terms of art, literature, music, science and philosophy the “new” Portugal has produced virtually nothing in 100 years and by most standards is the most backward nation in Europe. *Keep in mind that the Black population of the U.S. is approximately 13%. (27)
FACT #55: The Republic of Haiti, the only completely Black republic in the Western Hemisphere also happens to be the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. It also has the lowest life expectancy, highest illiteracy, lowest per capita consumption of newsprint, lowest per capita GNP, and the lowest level of political stability. (27)
FACT #56: Haiti once had a promising future. Before 1789 as a French colony under White rule, San Domingo (Haiti) was as rich or richer in productivity as all the 13 American Colonies combined. It was considered the “crown jewel” of the French colonial system, and was in fact the most prosperous colony anywhere in the world. Populated by 40,000 Whites, 27,000 freed Mulattoes, and 450,000 Black slaves and with a bountiful climate and productive soil, it supplied all of France and half of Europe with sugar, coffee, and cotton. But in 1791, the French government issued a decree ordering Haiti to give the vote to the Mulattoes, and soon after another ordering freedom for all the slaves. This resulted in a bloody civil war in which the entire White population (about 40,000 Frenchmen) was murdered, down to the last man, woman, and child. Rape, decapitation, and mutilation were committed almost universally upon their bodies. (22) (23)
FACT #57: After the Blacks massacred the last of the White population in 1804, Haiti remained a part of Santa Domingo, until 1844 when it became a separate “republic.” Between 1844 and 1915 only one Haitian president completed his term in office. Fourteen were ousted by armed uprisings, one was blown up, one was poisoned and another was hacked to pieces by a mob. Between 1908 and 1915 the revolutions and assassinations increased so rapidly that a United States military occupation was needed to restore order. This lasted from 1915 to 1934. Thereafter followed twelve years of rule by a Mulatto elite which ended in the resumption of control by the Black military in 1946. Since then wholesale corruption and political murder have been the rule. (23)
FACT #58: India’s Negroid peoples have been subjected to numerous White invasions for over 5000 years, prompting the rise and fall of one civilization after another as the White invaders became absorbed into the non-White masses. Then, about 1800 B.C. Aryans again invaded from the northwest, this time establishing a rigid caste (“varna.” meaning color) system of White supremacy which eventually evolved into an integral part of the Hindu religion. Interracial mixing was banned and punishable by death. (5) (37)
FACT #59: Led by an Aryan ruling class, Classical India blossomed into a great culture, giving expression to philosophy, poetry, science, mathematics, and literature. The land prospered as never before –or after.
FACT #60: The caste system lasted about 2,000 years (probably longer than any civilization under similar racial circumstances.) However, eventually the castes broke down due to miscegenation and by modern times virtually no pure Whites were remaining. (39) (37) (10)
FACT #61: Today, India has 834 million people who speak 150 different languages and dialects. When the annual rainfall is insufficient, they die of starvation at a rate of 2,000,000 to 6,000,000 per year. India has the highest birthrate in Asia, one of the lowest per capita incomes in the world, and an illiteracy rate close to 70%. (35) (33)
FACT #62: Ancient Egypt was founded and built by Mediterranean Caucasians as far back as 4500 B.C. Egypt’s period of greatness was from 3400 B.C. to 1800 B.C. and was characterized by its amazing architecture, pyramids, temples, and mastery of mathematics and engineering, the remnants of which are still evident today. The White Egyptians pioneered medicine, chemistry, astronomy, and law; In many cases, their achievements remain unequalled. (37) (39) (21)
FACT #63: But, about 3400 B.C. Egypt civilization began to spread up the Nile River, bringing it in close contact with the black Nubians to the south. Soon they were using Blacks for slave labor and Egypt became history’s first melting pot. (39) (10) (14)
FACT # 64: In time the infusion of Negro blood worked itself up from the bottom of Egyptian society. The slaves were eventually freed, received political equality, and took posts of authority in government. (10) (37)
FACT #65: By the time of King Tut (1370-1352 B.C.) even the ruling classes had been mongrelized and Egypt began a tailspin downward. Today, the once-mighty Egypt is very much a Third World country, having lost its art, its medicine, its architectural ability, and its position in world affairs. (10) (37)
The absurd notion that Ancient Egypt was a product of Negro ingenuity is now being widely disseminated in the schools. Though scholars know this is a blatant lie, they justify the deception by assuming it will boost the “self-esteem” of Black children.
(Note: These facts will most likely change drastically now that South Africa has fallen under black rule.)
FACT #66: White people have lived in South Africa much longer than Negroes. There have been White settlements in South Africa for over 300 years, about the same length of time Europeans have lived in North America. Even 150 years after the first colonies around Capetown, at the beginning of the 19th Century, there still were no Blacks within 500 miles. The Blacks wandered in from central Africa later on, possibly fleeing the slave trade or due to famine. In fact, most of South Africa’s Blacks were born in other countries. (29) (8) (14)
FACT #67: South Africa is by far the wealthiest and most advanced country in Africa, producing nearly 75% of the continent’s Gross National Product. It is almost completely self- sufficient so boycotts have little affect upon its economy. In fact most of Africa is dependent upon South Africa. South Africa is governed by a Western parliamentary republic and strictly segregated racially. South Africa grants complete self-government to the Blacks in their own areas of the country. (29) (8) (14)
FACT #68: Though South Africa is perpetually criticized by the world press for its racial separatism, its Blacks live better than the Blacks of any other African country and are multiplying rapidly and healthily. 87% of Black welfare costs are being paid by the White man. This includes food, clothing, training, housing, education an health care. –even old age pensions. (14)
FACT #69: Thousands of South African Blacks graduate from college every year, more than three times as many as in the rest of Africa combined. Every Black child is within walking distance of a primary school. Africa’s largest hospital, which serves Blacks almost exclusively and performs over 1800 operations per month, is in South Africa. (14)
FACT #70: The Blacks of South Africa own more cars than do all the citizens of the Soviet Union. (29)
FACT #71: South Africa has more Black doctors, lawyers, professional people, and millionaires than all of the rest of the world combined. (8)
FACT #72: In fact, conditions are “so bad” for Blacks in South Africa that the country has a tremendous problem with illegal Black immigration, having over one million illegal foreign workers. (14) (29)
FACT #73-75: Iceland, the only all-White nation in the world, has the world’s highest literacy rate. 100%. It is an island of cooled volcanic magma, located Just south of the Arctic Circle. It has no coal, no fuel, no timber, no mineral wealth or natural resources, and no navigable rivers. 75% of the interior is uninhabitable and only about 1% of the land is arable. It is the youngest nation in Europe and one of the most isolated countries in the world. Nonetheless, Iceland is #2 in the world in life expectancy and has one of the world’s highest standards of living, in terms of per capita income. It has tremendous medical facilities and a thriving publishing business. Virtually every family has a telephone. Upon graduation from high school, each Icelandic student has learned five languages.

FACT #75-77: On Jan. 31, 1977, Martin Luther King’s FBI records were sealed by court order until the year 2027 because, as his wife said, “its release would destroy his reputation” These records are rumored to contain instances of bizarre sexual perversion and homosexuality, and proof that King was under the direct orders of Soviet spies and financed by the Communist Party.
FACT #78: The Wall Street Journal (Nov.9, 1990) disclosed that Stanford University editors of The Papers of Martin Luther King Jr. have long known that King was guilty of plagiarism in his l955 Boston University doctoral thesis, having lifted significant portions from the works of other writers and graduate students.
FACT #79: Martin Luther King frequently enjoyed prostitutes and paid for them with his church’s money. Still, congress has voted to make King’s birthday a national holiday, in most places replacing Columbus Day or Washington’s Birthday as an official observance.
FACT #80: Almost every state in the union has a King holiday, and almost every city has a King Boulevard or King Civic Center. Yet the electoral evidence suggests that Americans will almost always vote down honors for King when given a chance. (41)
FACT #81: The entire continent of Africa, perhaps Earth’s richest land, accounts for only 3% of world trade. (27)
FACT #82-84: Almost all Blacks who have been leaders in fields other than athletics or music have had some White ancestry: Fredick Douglas, W.E.B. Dubois, Booker T. Washington, George Washington Carver, Alex Hailey, Thurgood Marshall, Bryant Gumbell, Colin Powell, Carl Rowan, Ed Bradley, Doug Wilder, etc. According to Dr. E.B. Reuter, “. . . Of successful and best known men that the Negro race has produced, at least thirteen- fourteenths are men of mixed blood. (27) (21)
FACT #85: Blacks are 50 times more likely to have syphilis than Whites. (32)
FACT #86: Twice as many Blacks as Whites receive dishonorable discharge from the U.S. military. (32)
FACT #87: A White woman is 15 times more likely to contract AIDS by engaging in sex with a Negro than with a White heterosexual. (U.S. Centers for Disease Control)
FACT #88: 90% of U.S. children with AIDS are Black or Hispanic. (36)
FACT # 89-92: In l950, American schools were among the best in the world. However, vocal elements within our society demanded that the public schools take on a social engineering role as well as an educational one. Violent disruptions of American education were ordered by the Supreme Court for the purpose of breaking down racial barriers. For 30 years, American schools have diverted enormous resources into forced integration, quotas, and bussing operations. (Few people realize how expensive bussing is. Annual cost may run into tens of billions of dollars. In l990 California alone was spending $500 million per year on integration. Many school districts spend a quarter or more of their budgets on transportation. In Milwaukee alone and in a single school year, 30,000 staff hours were diverted into calculating the race of students to attend the various schools.) The results? Today’s students rank at the very bottom worldwide in science and math, some 40% of American adults are functionally illiterate, and standardized test scores have declined steadily for both Whites and Blacks. Today the average White still scores 200 points higher on the combined SAT than the average Black. Americans spend more on education than any other country in the world and have the worst results. Massive White flight to escape racial zoning has reduced the tax base of every major American city. In l983, after nearly two generations of racial experimentation to promote equality, the research arm of the Dept. of Education could not produce a single study that showed Black children were learning appreciably better after desegregation. (25) (20) (32)
FACT #93: In Black Africa the average ruler lasts 7 months. (22) (27) (7)
FACT #94: By 1995, a third of U.S. students will be non-Whites and Whites will be a minority in the school districts of 5 states. (32)
FACT #95: Dr. William Shockley, Nobel prize winner for his work in the invention of the transistor and renowned geneticist as Stanford University, said, “The major cause for American Negroes’ hereditary is origin and thus not remedial to a major degree by improvement in environment.”
FACT #96: In 1930, about 33% of the world was White. Today, the U.N. estimates that only about 9.5% of the world’s population is Caucasian. This percentage is falling rapidly. (34) (27)
FACT #97: Every race has an equal capacity to learn and contribute to civilization and any differences are caused by prejudice and racism. The fact that white skins are associated with civilization is merely a quirk of fortune and coincidence. Any attempt to distinguish the races is motivated by paranoia and hatred. We must prevent any investigation into the subject and work to melt society together into a receless, nationless, harmonious utopia. (?)
FACT #98: In 1988 there were 9,406 cases of Black-on-White rape and fewer than 10 cases of White on Black rape in the U.S. (32)
FACT #99: For the book INTELLIGENCE AND NATIONAL ACHIEVEMENT, by Raymond Cattell, three distinguished American scholars compare massive evidence of national I.Q. score averages worldwide and warn against the decline of any nation whose population reflects declining intelligence. Taking into consideration the differential birthrates of American ethnic stocks, they concluded that American ability is declining rapidly. (21)
FACT #100: The American taxpayers have spent over $2.5 TRILLION trying to upgrade Blacks since the l960′s. (6)
FACT #101: QUOTES “The Negroes’ rude ignorance has never invented any effectual weapons of defense or destruction: they appear incapable of forming any extensive plans of government or conquest: and the obvious inferiority of their mental faculties has been discovered and abused by the nations of the temperate zone.” –Edward Gibbon, the great historian and author of THE DECLINE AND FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE, (V.III, pg. 277) “Wherever you find the Negro everything is going down around him, and wherever you find the White man you see everything around him improving.” –Robert E. Lee, to Col. Thomas H. Carter, May, l965
