Progress of Black America?

I didn’t find much of interest in this interview with Chris Rock, but this bit is quite interesting:

So, to say Obama [as the first black president] is progress is saying that he’s the first black person that is qualified to be president. That’s not black progress. That’s white progress. There’s been black people qualified to be president for hundreds of years. If you saw Tina Turner and Ike having a lovely breakfast over there, would you say their relationship’s improved? Some people would. But a smart person would go, “Oh, he stopped punching her in the face.” It’s not up to her. Ike and Tina Turner’s relationship has nothing to do with Tina Turner. Nothing. It just doesn’t. The question is, you know, my kids are smart, educated, beautiful, polite children. There have been smart, educated, beautiful, polite black children for hundreds of years. The advantage that my children have is that my children are encountering the nicest white people that America has ever produced. Let’s hope America keeps producing nicer white people.

That strikes me as substantially correct, as far as racism goes.

    Diana, I find your view of the black / white dynamic in this country utterly clueless. You seem to have accepted the Leftist narrative of white racism being responsible for the pathologies of the black demographic hook, line and sinker. Did you not witness the Ferguson riots? Have you not been following the black on white crime statistics? Black on white rape? What “world” are you watching?

    Objectivism is supposed to be a philosophy for “living on earth”. Its supposed to be about looking at the world empirically and identifying truth. The reality of the modern world is that we have a feral black underclass that has a murderous hatred of whites. And that that hatred is being stoked up deliberately by the Left. Chris Rock happens to be an agent of that very Left that is hell bent on creating a race war in this country. To quote him approvingly is a massive case of out of context thinking.

    Read the below article about a white Bosnian immigrant that was killed by feral blacks with hammers. They killed him because he was white and for “retaliation” over Michael Brown. That same Michael Brown who was a feral black thug who had just robbed and strong armed an Indian shopkeeper and demonstrated a complete lack of civilizing behavior. I am sure Rand would have called him a savage. Or is Ayn Rand not Objectivist enough for you? Perhaps she was a racist. She was born before the 1960s so by the standards of your leftist sympathies she is a de facto white supremacist.

    Diana your cultural commentary on race issues and sex issues sounds like Leftist drivel. It is painful to read or listen to you. If you are the future of Objectivism, Objectivism has no future.
