From Honoring Trayvon Martin by Daren Jonescu:
Having said all that, if we want to be philosophical about this, we might observe that there is, indeed, a way to honor Trayvon Martin. It is for the white-dominated American media, the white-dominated entertainment industry, the white-dominated Democratic Party, and the rest of white-dominated progressive America to stop telling young black people like Trayvon Martin that they are not “really black” unless they are fighting, using drugs, talking and acting like thugs, and citing “racism” as their excuse for everything. It is for America’s first half-white president to stop treating black Americans as an aggrieved underclass that can only be protected against injustice and poverty by voting Democrat. It is for that half-white president to stop trying to earn “his props” by flaunting his friendship with the millionaire “pimps” and “hoes” of the “black entertainment industry” who sell drugs, violence, racism, and sex as the secret path to “coolness,” i.e., acceptance, when in truth — as the lives of so many of these “entertainers” beyond age thirty prove — the heaven they are selling is in fact the pit of an inescapable hell. Enough of the White House gala evenings and Michelle Obama tweetings about Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and the rest of the creeps, punks, and porn stars-cum singers.
Duke Ellington brought American “black entertainment” to the heights, mixing his muse comfortably, and on a footing of real equality, with Shakespeare and Steinbeck, Tchaikovsky and Grieg, always studying, always learning — so that today, his supposed heirs can rant in a drugged-up stupor about killing cops and defiling women. Ella Fitzgerald became America’s “First Lady of Song” by expanding her repertoire from the popular dance tunes of her early days to masterful renderings of Gershwin, Porter, and Ellington in the 1950s; her heiresses today slink around like strippers using words and images to enliven the basest sentiments of the perpetual pubescents that comprise today’s pop music audience. Today’s so-called black leaders, including their “beige” president (to use Ellington’s phraseology) are firmly on the side of the glamorizors of cop-killing, rape, and prostitution. They have deliberately squandered or obscured the gains of the twentieth century for their own evil, oppressive purposes.
If you want to “honor Trayvon Martin,” stop actively corrupting the character and sentiment of each new generation of Trayvons. Stop encouraging, excusing, and even praising behavior that causes broken families, government dependency, moral decay, illiteracy, the degradations of a permanent underclass — and, all too often, sad wastes like the “tragedy” of February 26, 2012.
In short, if you want to honor Trayvon Martin, end American progressivism now.
Trayvon Martin is dead. D-E-A-D. He won’t be coming back.
Justice is for the living.
The death of Trayvon Martin is a relatively minor tragedy affecting a small number of people. It has no deeper meaning or significance. But it is an example of a much larger problem. A problem that does need to be dealt with.
Unfortunately it’s a problem that we can’t fix.
By “we” I mean white people. I am white. I know most of you are white as well. Our children and grandchildren are also white. The people who must fix the problem are black. (But white people can help if we stop enabling the problem.)
Black leaders, black parents and other members of the black community must work together to change course. Especially black parents. They must teach their children the value of hard work, education, self-sufficiency, individual responsibility and thrift. They must teach their children respect for others, respect for the law and to not hate and fear white people.
It will be hard work. They must be good role models for their kids. That means working shitty jobs at low pay instead of accepting welfare. That means sitting down and reading and doing homework with their kids every night. It means getting out of the slums both mentally and physically.
Many blacks have already done these things. When Jim Crow Segregation was still the law of the land black neighborhoods contained black professionals and the black middle class. When segregation ended they were the first to flee to the suburbs. That’s why today’s black leaders rarely live in black neighborhoods.
The Vile Progs would call these words racist. But racism is the belief that some races are superior to others. It also includes the belief that things like laziness, low intelligence and criminality are racial characteristics. I don’t believe those things.
Black people have proven that they can excel and succeed in any endeavors. They have reached the top in every field, including athletics, academics, science, medicine, business, law and politics.
But there is a cultural sickness in the black community. It is not unique to them, but it is epidemic in our inner cities and suburban slums. It is a culture of violence, drugs, crime, irresponsibility and dependency. It not only accepts these things, it glorifies them.
There are no magic wands. We are not going to cure these problems with more government programs. We’ve been trying to do that my whole life and it has gotten us nowhere.
But what do I know, I’m blinded by my white privilege.
