The Age of the Absurd

No. 11: America is systemically racist.
The manifest absurdity of this claim is easily demonstrated. In the past decades, more than 3 million black people have immigrated to America from Africa and the Caribbean. And probably tens of millions more would like to. Are all these people fools—choosing to move to a systemically racist country? Are they ignorant—unaware that America is systemically racist?
The non-absurd know the answers: All these blacks are neither fools nor ignorant. They know how lucky they are to move to America—because this country is so tolerant and so overwhelmingly nonracist. People don’t move to countries that hate them. No Jews moved to Germany in the 1930s.
We live in the Age of the Absurd. The only question is, why? I think I know the answer and will discuss it in a future column. In the meantime, share these 11 absurdities with friends and relatives, especially with those who actually think they make sense.

I remember a news clip from the corporate media doing a story about how the “evil Republicans” were slowing immigration and that there were long lines at out embassies seeking permission. One fellow in the line, who had been waiting for days, when asked why, replied: “America has fat poor people.” To me, that was the best answer I’d ever heard.
I see immigrants from India opening all sorts of businesses because it’s easy compared to the corruption in India. I see Oriental immigrants whose children seem to succeed in Gooferment Skrules against the odds. I see Mexican immigrants working their butts off at hard labor jobs and proudly showing off their new work truck for their efforts.
“Systematically racist” is something I don’t see. Pockets of idiots who either can’t or won’t try — of all races — seem to seek to blame “society”.
I will stipulate that the Gooferment “welfare” is designed to keep people poor and it is hard to break the cycle. But many do.
Let’s get the Gooferment out of the way.
