A Great Woman Has Passed

VDARE.COM’s Appeal Update, And Elizabeth Wright Remembrance | VDARE.com.

No wonder the buildings shook in New York yesterday. Elizabeth Wright is dead. I am strangely saddened at the passing of someone I only knew through e-mail correspondence and through her brilliant, piercing and erudite writing.

We became friends years ago on a Southern Heritage e-mail list. It was somewhat odd that a Black woman from New York City would have an interest in such a list. It soon became apparent that she had a different perspective that that of most Blacks.

She was convinced that in the Southern White man lay the Black race’s best chance for a square deal. She loved the ideals of the old Republic and it’s Constitution. The Southern White men she contended were the only group of Americans who as a whole still talked about the Constitution, who still cared about the founding ideals. She felt that her future and her people’s future would be safer under the government of a people who still supported the rule of law than under the caprices of the current system.

She came to my defense, when I was accused of being a racist on that list by a certain person who has a mythical and a-historic view of the Old South. He skulked off the list yet, he still maintains his slanders to this day. Yet I would rather count her my friend than get the approval of a such a confused character assassin any day.

She was very proud of her race and what they had accomplished before the Liberals and LBJ destroyed the progress Blacks had made in the so-called bad old days of Jim Crowe.  In the 1950’s Blacks were at the height of intact families, single-family home ownership, low rates of bastardy and high levels of business ownership. All of this she documented on her web site Issues and Views.  All of that came to an end with the grossly mis-named Great Society.

I am very sad that she has passed from the scene. I hope that you will go and read her writings so that you can appreciate what has been lost.

HK on Speaking Tour in SC

Here’s a headline: “My good friend HK gets a biased news report in the Columbia Daily Herald!” Of course that’s not really news. He has been defamed by much more important fish-wrappers than the Daily Herald.

This little hit piece which mentions HK, Kirk Lyons and me, has upon it all the greasy fingerprints of Mark Potock, chief shill for the $PLC, a non-civil rights profit organization. It is a mark of shallow journalism to run to and get any quotes from this discredited Leftist front organization.

I am proud to be mentioned in the same article with these two men, although this piece of scribbling hardly deserves the name of “article.” What he fails to mention in writing about the allegedly infamous “Napkin Incident” is that it was a light-harted moment in an otherwise serious meeting. Kirk and I were having our first meeting with HK who was then the president and representative of the NAACP in Asheville.

At that meeting we were discussing how to go about persuading the Ku Klux Klan not to carry out their threat to return to Asheville and recreate their recent march through downtown. They promised that if they did not receive police protection this time and if the cops allowed Communist agitators and AIDS infected Sodomites to spit at them and throw batteries at them, that they would make what happened at Greensboro, NC look like a picnic. They were referring to the 1979 shoot-out that took place between the Communists and a coalition of  Klan and neo-Nazi members in Greensboro at a “Death to the Klan” rally. Unfortunately for the Reds, it turned into a death to the Communists rally.

We were asked by the mayor’s office (unofficially of course and through back channels) to see what we could do to help prevent the threatened mayhem. Neither Kirk nor I had any connection to the Klan but we agreed to lend our expertise in far-Right groups to see what we could do to help.

One of the things that first impressed me about HK was his attitude about the whole situation. He said that he thought the Klan had a constitutional right to march, but under the circumstances and considering the heightened rhetoric that it would be better if they could be persuaded to postpone the planned second march. We agreed that it would be best and Kirk said that he would try to find a way to contact them and negotiate a cooling off period.

That meeting was the beginning of a long and interesting friendship with HK. We found that he was just as passionate about individual liberty, personal responsibility and the Bill of Rights as we were. We had never met before and  shoddy propaganda in the Asheville Citizen-Times similar in tone to this wretched news piece, had made HK think that he had made an appointment with the Devil. Instead we found much that we agreed upon and that we liked each other very well.

Unfortunately, they require a subscription to view the original story, but just take my word for it, it’s not worth it.

YouTube – Muhammad Ali – Racial Integration

He floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee.

Why is it that the Christians who have lost all natural affection (ἄστοργος astorgos, meaning they don’t love their own kindred. Look it up) want you to believe that this man does not know what he is talking about? If there is something wrong with Ali’s logic, I fail to find it.

The Civil Rights Myth

“. . . ever since the days of Abolition, whites had grown used to having this mass of people to pity. These black victims of the “bad” whites made the “good” whites feel expansive and noble, as they still do. The graphic depictions of past sufferings relentlessly offered up by the NAACP suited these whites just fine.”

The brilliant Elizabeth Wright scores again. Please read this essay. Have your children read it. It should be required reading for everyone who claims that they “support” the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or claims to be pro-civil rights for Black people or all for people or for whatever. You may need sunglasses to read it if you are not used to the bright glare of good sense in print. I know, it’s rare these days. Anyway, do yourself a favor and start reading Mrs. Wright.
