    Music that Black people used to play

    This is proof that we are devolving. Listen to what used to be black music.

    Gene Ammons - Canadian Sunset


    Modern Jazz Quartet (MJQ) - All Things You Are


    Ramsey Lewis - The In Crowd


    Buddy Guy - I Can't Quit You Baby

    Lyndon Johnson started this whole thing with the "Great Society".

    When I lived in Philly, I had many black friends (they were 55% of the population then). I ate dinner at their homes. It was obvious that they didn't have a lot of money, but they had a family - a mom and a dad.

    Now they have "baby mama" and "baby daddy". 32 year old grandma's (my wife was in psychriatic social services) - the situation was so bad she had to quit.

    Someone has to stand up and say enough is enough. I guess it won't be King Obama.

    I agree that's part of it.

    However, I can't ignore the fact that (for whatever reason, whether it's their lower average IQs or some other factor) wherever blacks are in large numbers, anywhere in the world - everywhere in the world - the "civilization index" is in decline. There's more poverty, more crime, poorer schools, decaying infrastructure, corruption, etc. etc.

    It's an ugly truth but that doesn't make it any less truthful. I have no desire to "discriminate" against anyone; that is, to avoid them or treat them with suspicion for no good reason, such as skin color.

    But it goes deeper than that; calling someone who is worried about (for example) blacks moving into their neighborhood a "racist" is a glib, bullshit way of dismissing legitimate, very real concerns based on facts on the ground rather than pie-in-the-sky Kumbaya nonsense. The value of your property is going to go down; the crime rate is going to go up; the schools will grow worse; you will see more trash laying around; there will be loud, boorish people to deal with. Etc. Etc.

    Most of of us know this; and we act accordingly, despite the pieties. We just won't admit it or discuss it openly.

    I've decided, for myself, that I will no longer be afraid to talk about it.
