African AmercianI don’t have a lot of likes…but my Facebook page engagement is ridiculously high…

I just got an e-mail from a woman asking me to publish her article on my website. I turned her down for no reason personal to her as an individual but the concept of the article itself: black power.

She wanted me to publish an article on my website that promoted the idea that black people should support black people, and questioned why don’t more black people support more black people.

Okay, hold on: Let me tell you what’s wrong with this logic.

1. A White Person Promoting The Idea Of Whites Supporting Whites Would Be Demonied As A Racist

If a white person pushed an article that promoted the idea that whites should support more whites on the basis of being white, they’d be demonized as a racist…hardcore. On the spot. Irredeemably so. They’d be basically put on a damn watch list.

It’s not fair if it’s a society we want to live in that’s based on intrinsic equality (different than instrumental value). If minorities want to live in an intrinsically equal society, then they have no choice but to approach such problem-solving algebraically, or stop pretending that it’s equality that they really want. Many black people I’ve spoken to then attempt to counter this stance with the concept of saying that equality is different than equity.

Well, so sorry…I don’t think any of us are entitled to a damn thing. I’m not asking for equity. Vannokens don’t need equity. Our human capital alone is enough to forge our own way. I'm actually HAPPY that being Vannoken, I have forfeited all African-American benefits, such as scholarships...I don't need them. We don't need them.

As a matter of fact, I’ve written in the philosophy book that I’m going to publish soon, that with the embracing of my own white blood/heritage, I actually also take on the burden of slavery myself, because I think the concept of that kind of entitlement is just that pathetic. If it’s reparations for slavery you want? I’ll pay an equal share that other whites do, because that’s how little I respect the concept; we weren’t alive during slavery. Comparing it to the Jews is a false equivalence; most of the suffering we go through now, we create ourselves.

I speculate that the black people who cry out for reparations the most are the ones who would be least likely to know what to do with it to actually create legit generational wealth for themselves, while the black people who would know what to do with it don’t need it to begin with, because they’ve already used that knowledge to begin creating their own. So…if I supported that concept, it’d violate the first code of my tribe: Löhmkì — Relinquish all intrinsic entitlement. I believe that I am intrinsically entitled to nothing, not even the right to exist.

2. Not All Black People Are The Same.

African AmericanBlack people support black people all the time; it depends on which psychographic group of black people we’re talking about, since African-Americans aren’t classified by tribe. So it’s VERY EASY to say that African-Americans have on average lower IQs, or spent more, etc. Instead, if they were divided and tested by psychographic differences, like tribe, you’d get RADICALLY different results. I GUARANTEE you that the whole IQ problem doesn’t exist with Vannokens; I promise you. Which debunks the argument that IQ tests are biased against minorities; that is also bullshit, because to say “average” is not the same as saying “all”.

An average is mathematically provable, with statistical outliers both above and below the mean. That means that there are plenty of black people with IQs higher than the average white or Asian; they’re just less common and those averages are pulled down when grouped with other black people of entirely different haplogroups. So there goes that argument.

I’ve read reports about how money stays in the African-American community shorter than other cultures before it’s spent in the other cultures…

…could it possibly be that there aren’t really enough black businesses to sustain those dollars to begin with? No?

As I’ve written in my one post, “How Does One Create One’s Own Culture”, the term "African-American" is actually a catch-all…because Africa is a continent, not a country, and all of the many tribes of blacks had hand-selected individuals taken from them, isolated, and artificially bred to form a kind of blob culture that split into basically Christianity or the thug life, or a weird and contradicting kind of fusion of both (see the rapper: DMX).

But neither are actually organized tribes of people with their own languages. Church groups…maybe. Gangs…maybe.

But not an ethnic tribe.

I am black, sure. But I’m not a tribalist. I have a tribe, but I’m not loyal to my tribe for the sake of my tribe alone; that goes against our own tribal code, Töȑbȑöhækì — Truth before tribe. To follow truth before a tribe is to create a tribe that follows truth.

So, in essence, you’re actually being racist to other black people by grouping them all into the same category…yourself.

Stop that.

3. It's A Guilt-Trip Tactic

African AmericanThis kind of logic is used as a guilt-trip tactic because of what’s become a conventional opinion that anyone who becomes successful must give back to that community on the basis of ethnicity alone, even if that community never actually did anything for that individual to even help them become successful, to begin with. That’s collectivism that inevitably lends itself to a violation of the individual’s rights.

I’m not loyal to whites, blacks, Asians, or really anyone on the basis of what they are alone, so don’t ask for help from me if that's your rationale for why I should.

I’m loyal to those who have earned it, and stand for something that I share a belief in. And even then, in that case, it wouldn’t be loyalty to them more than it would be to that belief, to principle.

The Real Question

The question is not why won't I, as a black man, help you; the question is why can't you stand on your own two feet in a way that would lay the foundation for a mutually beneficial relationship?
