MORE FACT CHECKING DONE ON THE “BLACK DILEMMA

When an essay titled “The Black Dilemma” was reportedly published by The Baltimore Sun, thousands of readers cried foul because the article, attributed to Sun reporter Ian Duncan, was clearly racist.

A few days later the Sun — a liberal daily newspaper — published a disclaimer that “The Sun did not write, publish or have any other association with it.”

Of course, no liberal newspaper would lay claim to an essay asserting “The fundamental problem is that American black culture has evolved into an unfixable and crime ridden mess.

They do not want to change their culture or society, and expect others to tolerate violence and amoral behavior.”

And, the Sun was blameless — the paper had not published the essay.

It was a ruse fostered by a person or group that had circulated the essay on the Internet, claiming it originally appeared in the Sun.

The essay gripped both conservatives and liberals, generating a torrent of social media comment — from liberal angst to conservative agreement with much of what the author had said.

Internet sleuths deduced that “The Black Dilemma” was penned by Anthony Bryan, a contributor to American Renaissance.

An online journal that focuses on racial issues which some consider bigoted.

HERE IS THE ALLEGED ESSAY BY THE BALTIMORE SUN:

Absolutely the most well-articulated assessment of the racial issues that confront the United States than anything I have yet to see.

What courage, and intellect, it took to  it took objectively lay out the REAL ISSUES THAT MUST BE ADDRESSED!!!

The Baltimore Sunis definitely not known as a Conservative newspaper,

So this a magnificently written assessment of the situation in USA that comes as something of a surprise.

The Black Dilemma

“For almost 150 years the United States has been conducting an interesting experiment. 

The subjects of the experiment:  black people and working-class whites.

The hypothesis to be tested:

Can a people taken from the jungles of Africa and forced into slavery be fully integrated as citizens in a majority white population?

The whites were descendants of Europeans who had created a majestic civilization. 

The former slaves had been tribal peoples with no written language and virtually no intellectual achievements.

Acting on a policy that was not fair to either group, the government released newly freed black people into a white society that saw them as inferiors. 

America has struggled with racial discord ever since.

Decade after decade the problems persisted but the experimenters never gave up. 

They insisted that if they could find the right formula the experiment would work, and concocted program after program to get the result they wanted.

 They created the Freedman’s Bureau,

passed civil rights laws,

tried to build the Great Society,

declared War on Poverty,

ordered race preferences,

built housing projects, and tried midnight basketball.

Their new laws intruded into people’s lives in ways that would have been otherwise unthinkable. 

They called in National Guard troops to enforce school integration. 

They outlawed freedom of association.  Over the protests of parents.

They put white children on buses and sent them to black schools and vice-versa. 

They tried with money, special programs, relaxed standards, and endless hand wringing to close the achievement gap.

To keep white backlash in check they began punishing public and even private statements on race. 

They hung up Orwellian public banners that commanded whites to Celebrate Diversity! and Say No to Racism. 

Nothing was off limits if it might salvage the experiment.

Some thought that what W.E.B. DuBois called the Talented Tenth would lead the way for black people.

A group of elite, educated blacks would knock down doors of opportunity and show the world what blacks were capable of.

There is a Talented Tenth.  They are the black Americans who have become entrepreneurs, lawyers, doctors and scientists.

But ten percent is not enough. 

For the experiment to work, the ten percent has to be followed by a critical mass of people who can hold middle-class jobs and promote social stability.

That is what is missing.

Through the years, too many black people continue to show an inability to function and prosper in a culture unsuited to them. 

Detroit is bankrupt, the south side of Chicago is a war zone, and the vast majority of black cities all over America are beset by degeneracy and violence.

And blacks never take responsibility for their failures.  Instead, they lash out in anger and resentment.

Across the generations and across the country,

as we have seen in Detroit, Watts, Newark, Los Angeles,

Cincinnati, and now Ferguson,

rioting and looting are just one racial incident away.

The white elite would tell us that this doesn’t mean the experiment has failed. We just have to try harder. 

We need more money, more time, more understanding, more programs, and more opportunities.

But nothing changes no matter how much money is spent, no matter how many laws are passed,

No matter how many black geniuses are portrayed on TV, and no matter who is president. 

Some argue its a problem of culture, as if culture creates peoples behavior instead of the other way around.

Others blame white privilege.

But since 1965, when the elites opened America’s doors to the Third World, immigrants from Asia and India,

people who are not white, not rich, and not connected have quietly succeeded. 

While the children of these people are winning spelling bees and getting top scores on the SAT, black youths are committing half the country’s violent crime.

Which includes viciously punching random white people on the street for the thrill of it that has nothing to do with poverty.

The experiment has failed. 

Not because of white culture, or white privilege, or white racism. 

The fundamental problem is that American black culture has evolved into an un-fixable and crime-ridden mess.

*They do not want to change their culture or society and expect others to tolerate their violence and amoral behavior.

They have become socially incompatible with other races by their own design, not because of the racism of others – but by their own hatred of non-blacks.*

Our leaders don’t seem to understand just how tired their white subjects are with this experiment. 

*They don’t understand that white people aren’t out to get black people; they are just exhausted with them. 

They are exhausted by the social pathologies, the violence, the endless complaints,

and the blind racial solidarity,

the bottomless pit of grievances,

the excuses, and the reflexive animosity.*

The elites explain everything with racism, and refuse to believe that white frustration could soon reach the boiling point.”—

“You can’t legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. 

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government can’t give to anybody anything that the government doesn’t first take from somebody else. 

When half of the people get the idea that they don’t have to work because the other half is going to take care of them.

And when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for,

that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”

SNOPES.COM SAYS: ( I KNOW CONSIDER THE SOURCE)

In June 2015, a controversial opinion piece entitled “The Black Dilemma” was circulated online along with an attribution to the Baltimore Sun.

Although many online postings of the below-displayed piece in June 2015 claimed that it had been recently published in Baltimore Sun, the newspaper denied this.

The missive has actually been circulating on the internet since at least September 2014

when it was published under the title “Ten Percent Is Not Enough” on the American Renaissance blog, which Southern Poverty Law Center has described as espousing white supremacist and racist ideologies.

The American Renaissance posting was originally attributed to Anthony Bryan;

But that name was stripped from versions shared via internet forumsCraigslist postings, and comments sections of several race-related articles.

Several different authorial names have been attached to the piece, including “John S. Mosby” (a Confederate cavalry officer), “Edmund Hughes,” and “Ian Duncan,”

but the article didn’t truly go viral until after the Baltimore Sun attribution was tacked on.

  1. Great, true article. Well done and a surprise a rag like the Sun printed it.

    1. Even if the BS didn’t write that story, it speaks truth! There is absolutely nothing racist about it. Why is it that when the fricking liberals don’t agree with a point of view, the first thing that comes out of their twisted mind is racism? It’s like they can only have a conversation with you if they agree with what your saying. It has spread like an evil cancer and this is why Trump will win easily in November, as long as the Marxist left doesn’t keep cheating!!

      Very true but I am curious why someone tried to give someone else the by line on this.

watcha gotta say?
