Bad Behavior and Interpersonal Weakness
I am pleased to say that some theories are easier to prove than others. I have always maintained that within the context of the US, the fiercest advocates of “white supremacy,” are seeking to mask a profound inability to COMPETE. History reveals that this was the case in the American South in the aftermath of African enslavement. It was the same during the Jim Crow Era of American Segregation. The exclusion of Blacks from counties, towns, professions and commerce often followed demonstrable Black success. Ida B. Wells was drawn into a life of political activism after lynchings in Tennessee led to the deaths of prosperous Black store owners. Professional sports leagues banned Black participation for years while hiding behind the ruse of “physical superiority.” Things have not changed all that much.
A Question of Substance
Decades after the revelation that Africans had numerous pre-Columbian contacts in the Americas, this site suggests no such thing has happened. It is precisely this type of revisionism that deluded “white” supremacists into believing they were physically superior in the ring, the gridiron, the diamond and on the court. Of course, the myth extended beyond the realm of the body – but the evidence of such claims has always wanted for support. “Guy” actually posted pictures of Greek-era Egyptian coins as “proof” the Egyptians of antiquity were “white.” For historians and archaeologists, this is the height of absurdity. The ethnicity of the Ptolemaic Dynasty is neither under question or relevant. In this environment, facts are simply beside the point. The knowledge base for meaningful discourse is simply too one-sided. When Cheikh Anta Diop overwhelmed his colleagues at UNESCO in the 70’s, they had the decency to concede the point. Those scholars “knew what they didn’t know.” With Guy, it’s different. He doesn’t know what he doesn’t know. He has no clue – so, like many of his fellow blind men, he makes proclamations about things which have not only been soundly refuted, but were actually predicated on the political agenda of long-deceased men with an axe to grind. The history of “white supremacy” is chock full of scholarly myths. From “Piltdown Man” to the recent faux-discovery of “whites” at Qustul, there is no end to the grand deception. And why not? The cost of the truth is too high.
Competition is supposed to be the principle which reflects the heart and soul of this nation and the entire Western enterprise. Blogs are a place of competitive ideas. Banning is little more than a grandiose concession speech.
