This is Why We Had SegregationSpencer J. Quinn
With so much unrest happening in so many places these days, it’s hard to make sense of it all. America is fracturing, that much we can see. But as with an earthquake, all the tidal waves and crumbling structures don’t give us a view of the tectonic plates rumbling deep beneath the surface. But if we could see those tectonic plates, then we might be better equipped to avoid the devastation and find safety.
Here’s a rundown of outrages from that past ten days:
September 14: A black man ambushed two Los Angeles police officers who were sitting in their patrol car, shooting both. The officers were not fatally injured, but when they were taken to the hospital, a Black Lives Matter mob attempted to block the entrance, while shouting “Death to police!”
September 14: A BLM mob rioted in Lancaster, Pennsylvania after police shot and killed a Hispanic man who charged police with a knife.
September 16: BLM harassed and threatened a white man in his home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for having a pro-Trump flag and for allegedly using racial slurs. The homeowner was arrested after allegedly pointing a gun at the rioters through his window.
September 16: Jake Gardner, a white bar owner in Omaha, Nebraska, defended his business against a BLM mob. After the mob attacked his 70-year-old father and threw him to the ground, he fired two warning shots and warned the rioters to stay away. After another rioter jumped him, Gardner shot and killed him. Initially, the DA ruled the killing self-defense. But after rioters threatened him at his home, he allowed a black special prosecutor named Frederick Franklin to investigate. Franklin filed charges against Gardner for manslaughter, first-degree assault, and making terrorist threats. Gardner committed suicide as a result.
September 17: Two black gunmen shot a white Mennonite couple in Indianapolis, killing 40-year-old Wilma Hochstetler. The gunmen remain at large. The national mainstream media ignores the story.
September 20: Without any provocation, a black wearing a T-shirt with a Black Lives Matter slogan shot and killed two whites and a black who were dining at a Louisville restaurant.
September 22: A black saboteur derails a subway train in New York City by hurling metal construction debris in front of it, causing nearly $1 million in damage.
September 23: Black Lives Matter rioters attacked Louisville, Kentucky after the city decided not to charge police in the Breonna Taylor killing. A black gunman shoots two police officers. 127 rioters arrested.
September 23: Black Lives Matter shut down I-94 in St. Paul, Minnesota. Police do nothing.
September 23: Leftist terrorists vandalize a Trump supporter’s garage in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, and then set fire to his vehicles and camper. They sprayed “Biden 2020” and “BLM” on his garage.
September 24: BLM and Antifa riot in Portland, protesting the Breonna Taylor decision. Rioters armed with slingshots hurl rocks, full soup cans, and Molotov cocktails at police.
September 24: Four-year-old white child named Rowan Sweeney is murdered by a black gunman who broke into his home in the middle of the night. The man also shot all four adults in the home, putting two in critical condition. The national mainstream media ignores the story.
What to make of all this? Bedlam such as this has become the new normal in the United States since the George Floyd riots began back in May. The above list is just the crest of an enormous wave that is threatening to inundate us with violence and destruction. There is so much already behind it, and so much more to come. Still, those of us old enough to remember the halcyon days of this past February will know that these events — and this unrest we are enduring — are not normal. Those tremors you feel? That’s the historic American nation being throttled by history.
One can ask why. Why are they doing this?
To answer may take one down an unpleasant rabbit hole, but for the sake of clarity, I’m going to elaborate as pleasantly as I can.
The current unrest is the inevitable consequence of three major shifts in Western culture which took place in the previous century:
- Removing all impediments to Jewish involvement in the mainstream of American life based on the lie that Jews are more patriotic to their host countries than they are to themselves.
- Elevating the legal and political status of blacks to the level of whites based on the lie that the races are equal in intelligence and temperament.
- Ending the pro-white immigration policies that the Founding Fathers had put in place based on the lie that non-whites are capable of carrying on the Enlightenment values expressed in the US Constitution.
I argue that it was only a matter of time before the general slackening of pro-white norms would lead to the unrest we see today. Jews provide the funds and organization. Blacks, other non-whites, and useful idiot whites then do the dirty work. We see this everywhere. As the proportion of whites in the population continues to shrink, greater power falls into the laps of non-whites who wish to shape America in their image rather than in that of white people. This requires not only change in government but a show of force on the streets. That the terrorist group Black Lives Matter can assemble rioters at the home of a District Attorney to force him to arrest an innocent man tells it all. They say they are “protesting” systemic racism, but no. This is simply a bid for power. They do this because they can. They see traditional-minded whites as being too weak to resist. And because power loves a vacuum, they swoop in to arrogate for themselves the power they see slipping from the fingers of white people.
They are both correct and not correct about this. They are correct because whites are indeed too weak at this point to stop them. There are few, if any, explicitly pro-white organizations that lobby, pull strings, organize mass actions, or (as a last resort) put boots on the ground to protect the interests of white people. Certainly, no explicitly pro-white organizations can equal the funding provided by explicitly anti-white organizations. Sure, there are implicitly pro-white or anti-anti-white organizations that get involved in one degree or another. But because such organizations are not explicit about white interests, they must at least pay lip service to the interests of non-whites. This weakens their mandate and thus their dedication to white interests.
The group Patriot Prayer is an excellent example. The Center for Immigration Studies is another. Both are conservative organizations with some influence in our society whose philosophical outlooks remain congruent with the majority of whites. The former promotes faith and patriotism, the latter common sense border control. Most whites want these things. But since the Left controls societal norms in America, whites are not allowed to claim to want these things because they are good for whites. If they do so, they will get punished through mass-shaming, mass-deplatforming, loss of livelihood, legal action, or unwarranted arrest (as in the case of the Rise Above Movement in the wake of Charlottesville). Or, as in the case with that homeowner in Milwaukee, whites could even find hundreds of BLM or Antifa rioters showing up at their doorstep.
Instead, whites must claim that their implicitly pro-white measures are good for all, or at least for the Left’s purported vision of a multicultural America. Therefore, any explicitly pro-white organization that speaks up for the interests of whites must be shunned by implicitly pro-white organizations. This is obviously counter-productive for whites since it splits their defenders into two semi-hostile camps.
Divide and conquer. Divide and conquer.
The Left is incorrect about whites, however, in the sense that they mistake having faith in the existing system as a sign of weakness. Despite losing much of his luster since 2016, President Trump can still draw tens of thousands to his rallies. The enthusiasm for him among mainstream whites remains strong and sincere. This means that whites are still enthusiastic about what Trump stands for: law and order, strong borders, American tradition and patriotism, and an implicit pro-white populism. Note that this does not necessarily translate to enthusiasm for Trump’s accomplishments, which of course fall short of what he stands for. That these patriotic MAGA whites are not all joining Mike Enoch’s National Justice Party and reciting the Fourteen Words indicates not so much weakness in the face of Leftist encroachments but a time-honored belief that implicit white interests will win out (or at least hold out) against explicit non-white interests. This is how the American system has operated since the 1960s, and most whites simply have faith that it will continue to do so. One can call this “patriotic inertia,” and it is not necessarily a bad thing. After all, there have been many arrests since the Floyd riots. And what have all these riots accomplished besides convincing more and more people to vote for Donald Trump?
Of course, the MAGA whites are wrong. While Trump will most likely win re-election in November, implicit white interests will not hold out against explicit non-white interests much longer — not with the white population about to dip below sixty percent of the US population. Once that happens, expect more and more explicitly pro-white organizations to pop up and resist the Left’s encroachment upon Western Civilization. Whether they will be successful in the coming civil war remains to be seen. Reactionary forces lost in France after the French Revolution and in places like Ukraine after the Russian Revolution. However, the Whites did defeat the Reds in places like Poland after the Revolution. And the Spanish Right was successful after its civil war in the 1930s.
But when all dust settles and whites begin trying to understand how and why this all happened, I predict a radical shift in the historical understanding of the past two centuries among whites. Our white ancestors had it right the first time. Racial segregation was not a means to oppress black people out of an inherent racism or xenophobia. It was a defensive measure aimed at protecting the white populace from a predatory, semi-civilized race that would drag the United States into the Third World if it could. The same could be said of Apartheid South Africa. As I have said many times before, blacks as a group have a low average IQ and poor impulse control. They are destructive and they are dangerous. It makes sense to keep them away — and the problems we’re facing now are the result of not keeping them away. After the anti-white indignities of the Reconstruction, Southern postbellum whites understood the danger of blacks better than we do today, and they took the appropriate measures to keep them in check. They could have predicted what we’re going through right now. As implicit pro-white interests prove less and less successful against explicit non-white ones, modern whites are bound to learn this lesson once again — and hopefully for the last time.

I saw Lancaster as a kid. It was very nice, idyllic even. It’s a damned shame what those outside agitators did to it.
I watched video of the immediate aftermath of the completely justified police shooting and Lancaster appeared far from idyllic. In fact, all I saw was a diversified hodgepodge of human refuse. Point being, the “unrest” in Lancaster was entirely local. I could tell by watching the live-streams that the local blacks, puerto ricans, and gutter Whites had been well primed to lash out by the lifetime supply of semitic brain aids that they’ve imbibed.
Damn shame though. Small cities like Lancaster used to be safe havens from the perils of diversity while still offering something in the way of arts, culture, and entertainment for Whites. I’m afraid that’s no longer the case in most of our small cities. Other nearby smaller cities in PA such as York, Reading, Harrisburg, Lehigh, and Scranton are quite diversified too. I’m angered, but no longer surprised, when I travel through a smaller metro area and find it filled with the diversity plague.
Late last year I traveled through eastern Wisconsin and was taken aback by the amount of nonWhites in the area. I figured that Milwaukee was far gone but assumed that the smaller cities would be unscathed. Nope. Kenosha wasn’t a hellhole but I could see that it was well into the process of being diversified. Of course, I wasn’t then shocked to see the local ferals committing a Stage 5 Chimpout after the Jacob Blake incident. Sad but true.
This is why White Flight is so fooling. You can’t run from your problems in a globalized world.
A White Standoff is preferable to a life spent fleeing the inevitable.
It does seem like things are escalating. This is good as our people need to wake up.
According to the link for your Sept 20th story, the guy actually shot 2 whites and 1 black, not 3 whites. Should be corrected.
Thank you. That was my mistake. I have asked our editor to correct it.
PERFECT headline. This is a “Chesterton’s Gate” situation where the reformers couldn’t see why we had restrictions because they lived under the benefits of the restrictions on blacks, with separate school systems, etc.
Reactionary forces lost in France after the French Revolution and in places like Ukraine after the Russian Revolution. However, the Whites did defeat the Reds in places like Poland after the Revolution. And the Spanish Right was successful after its civil war in the 1930s.
These are brother wars. White vs White.
What is coming in the West will not be White vs White, but some Whites versus Jews, non-Whites and some Whites in an era of mass urbanization and stretched supply-chains.
Expect urban famine.
Just a few comments:
“with the white population about to dip below sixty percent of the US population.”
> The American Nation was already fully formed by the time mass migration from other European groups began, many of whom never really became fully assimilated. That nation is already a minority in its own country. Never forget that all minimally plausible “caucasoids” (George Zimmerman, Rashida Tlaib, etc) make it into the “Census Whites” category, so that 60% figure is basically meaningless at this point.
“The same could be said of Apartheid South Africa.”
> Apartheid was a disaster. Contrary to The Narrative, which tells us that evil racist whites did nothing but hunt down and lynch negroes in South Africa, those idiotic “racists,” like the good Christians that they were, did in fact the opposite and gave the blacks all that White civilization had to offer, including building the largest hospital in Africa, exclusively for blacks, in their attempt to “civilize” them. At one point in the past, there were basically as many Whites as blacks in South Africa but today our people are completely outnumbered. Why? Because Apartheid. Eugene Terreblanche, leader of the AWB, whose flag resembled that of the Third Reich, was murdered by… his black employees! What an idiot.
We don’t want segregation, we want total separation with minimal contact with other races. Let them stand on their own feet and control their own destinies. The idea of allowing ANY amount of “diversity” in our ethnostates and ruling over them, civilizing them, teaching them our languages, sharing our knowledge with them, is insane. Let them become Haiti, whilst we become a continental Orania.
Exactly. This is what I have wanted all my life, and what the white nationalist movement has finally come round to. With tremendous respect for the late Sam Francis, this was the ONLY issue on which he was wrong. He loved America, and thought we should reconquer OUR COUNTRY. Even a quarter century ago when he wrote that in the pages of AR, I was sceptical. Whites as a race – a collective biological entity – can only survive via total separation, physical/geographical and political/national.
Once we have achieved total separation from every other race – NO EXCEPTIONS down to … what? … at least the 1/16 impurity (great-great-grandparent) level – we must find ways to increase our fecundity, and reduce that of other races, as we do, sadly, live on the same fragile planet. We will never engage in pathological altruism towards other races again.
THE lesson of post-Enlightenment racial history is that whites have always been too kind towards nonwhites, a behavior never reciprocated. The only possible exception to this rule was Nazi Germany.
When Whites started to settle in South Africa in the middle of the 17th century, there were some one million Blacks in the country. Now there are more than 45 million of them, all in spite of “Apartheid”.
Whites imported some 400,000 African Blacks into North America, there are now more than 44 million of them, all in spite of “racism”.
The greatest enemy of Whites is Whites themselves.
The tragic end of Jake Gardner infuriates me. He was prohibited from even raising money for his legal defense. His businesses were evicted by the blubbering property owner. The most sickening aspect is not one elected official of any import stood up for this man.
I recall Sir Godfrey Bloom, a former MEP for Southeastern England, speaking of “the thin edge of the wedge” for when people lose faith in the legal system. Well, without equal protection under law, then we have no legal system, just arbitrary rule.
It’s been that way for a while on the civil side. Any claim involving a minority or a victim group will inevitably go to the claimant if you live in a minority area. The legal system is a joke so far as my profession goes, so far as I can see.
I do not mean this as a critique of the article, just a commentary and additional thoughts. I agree with the author’s argument.
Yes, nonwhite violence and the chaos caused by the black presence in the South is why southerners instituted segregation after Reconstruction. What it did not do was end white reliance on black labor. Those southern planters of the antebellum days hired black sharecroppers and fruit pickers; hired black nursemaids and cooks to replace the slave mammies of the past. My own mother was taken care of by a black “mammy” the first six or seven years of her life during the sixties. Nonwhites today pour through the border, because so many American businesses will hire them on the cheap, and for many of the same old jobs. South African whites maintained an Apartheid that was largely illusory: the white areas turned black during the day when all the black Africans went to their jobs inside white homes and white businesses. Yes, the southerners and South Africans had segregation and Apartheid for good reasons, and yet they undermined those legal institutions every time that they failed to give up their addiction to cheap nonwhite labor. So what did this kind of quasi-“separation” result in? Destruction of those societies, of course. The “divide and conquer” phenomenon is not only between implicit-pro-whites and explicit-pro-whites, but will also be between whites who will continue to want to employ nonwhites for menial jobs and whites who will put their racial interests above their individual economic interests. History has convinced me that it will be much harder to persuade whites to quit relying on black/nonwhite labor than it will be to persuade them that there is such a thing as a legitimate white interest. One step at a time, I know, but breaking economic habits will be the great battle in the future. We cannot stop at “explicit white interest” this time. Backsliding and the collapse of legal separation is how all such stories end if the socio-economic angle is not tackled.
I agree and disagree (I am unclear, however, re what you mean by “[t]he “divide and conquer” phenomenon is not only between implicit-pro-whites and explicit-pro-whites”).
What we whites today are rueful about is our ancestors’ lack of any deep sense of intergenerational ethics. We desperately wish they had considered the jeopardy into which they would be placing their descendants should the latter ever go racially insane. But that was expecting a bit much of them, no? We today are capable of such long range ethical planning because of changes that occurred in later centuries in the cosmic understanding prevalent amongst the educated West. These changes are all naturalistic: an awareness of the hitherto unimaginable age of the Earth and, still greater, universe; an understanding of the likely evolutionary ‘descent’ of man, and its hereditarian implications; the unprecedented scale of both the demographic and industrial assault of mankind on the biosphere, along with the development of a new ecological understanding of its fragility; and the recognition of the possibility and ease of species extinction. All of these changes (and others, I assume) taken together have led us to think about future well-being in a way that our ancestors rarely did. The few that did give thought about the distant future did so mainly out of concern for their own families, or that they should be honored by a vague ‘Posterity’.
[There is an obvious counter-argument to the above; namely, that the Founding Generation, and some generations thereafter, were far more concerned about the immorality of “binding” future generations to debt repayments for debts incurred for the benefit of people in the present than we have been in the 20th/21st centuries. So early Americans did give thought to the future consequences of some present actions, but perhaps mostly those that were quantifiably foreseeable. But it must also be noted, these were usually the best, most educated Americans.]
IOWs, the slavers who brought Africans to our New World could never have imagined the antifa or the cuckservative. People in the past were mostly too well-grounded in harsh quotidian realities to have been psychologically amenable to such obvious nonsense. Granted, our over-imaginative race has always produced its share of charlatans and pathological altruists, but usually these were either religious nuts (the Anabaptists, John Brown), or the type of sociopaths always in the ‘woodwork’, but normally kept closeted or leashed without too much trouble by healthier societies.
Furtherm0re, given that modern generations of white Americans have inherited the nonwhite presence, could they have reasonably been expected not to have made some use of them? Indeed, if any one white patriot businessman had NOT utilized the cheaper nonwhite labor, he would have been outcompeted by those without such racial scruples. This is a classic example of a “free-rider” problem, indeed, the worst type – the one in which present generations benefit while the brunt of the pain is to be borne by future persons. Collectively, white society, whether in the US or SA, benefitted from cheap nonwhite labor; it was the always uncertain and so somewhat unpredictable future that would bear the costs. Your grandparents hiring a Negro mammy were acting perfectly rationally within the constraints of a collective situation not of their making.
What IS inexcusable is the racial behavior of the modern West in the postwar period, with each generation behaving more despicably than its predecessor. There was no excuse for changing our Eurocentric immigration laws in 1965; for European elites to allow mass Muslim and African migration; for Reaganites to lie to their Middle American base about how “immigrants are good for the economy”, and thus by implication for America over the long run, neither of which was ever true to any extent.
In the white future – if there is to be one – the racio-territorially separatist states we form must be perpetually (self-)chartered never to allow any nonwhite citizenship or residence, beyond possible short-term tourism (and even that is a matter of proper debate). They must also be structured with racial preservation as their ‘raison d’etre’, so that any and all private interests must be subordinated to collective racial survival. OTOH, these states should not be socialist, for all the innumerable reasons that libertarians and conservatives have advanced against socialism over the past century and a half. What us needed is Liberty in One Country, and Capitalism In One Race.
I don’t know that we disagree on the important points, and my “divide and conquer” comment referred to your fifth paragraph. My only argument was that there is another dimension to the problem rather than the simple two-dimensional division made up of : whites with”explicit” racial interests vs whites with “implicit” racial interests and who regard the former as dangerous/oppositional. Arthur Kemp does a good job of explaining this dynamic in his introduction to “White Man, Think Again!” Supremacy, in other words, is not the answer. So, yes, I agree that a homogeneous ethnostate seems to be the only correct answer to solve it. And you are also correct that eighteenth and nineteenth-century Americans were VERY concerned about their “posterity.” It was less vague to them than it is to us now. They spoke and wrote of it constantly. They, too saw this multi-dimensional problem as a racial, as well as socio-economic problem.
Very clear and concise statement of our plight by Spencer Quinn. Alas, we whites are being conquered in real time, but still day by day and step by step. Incredible. I always thought this was coming, but my “rational” side kept believing that someday idiot white conservatives would awaken to prevent this. I think Quinn is quite wrong about Trump’s reelection. I also am increasingly thinking that our race died in the ashes of Berlin, 1945, and that we are all the walking dead. Even after Rome ‘fell’, life still staggered on for the actual Romans for quite a while in terms of everyday human time. Perhaps our race has already similarly fallen (in terms of when future historians will judge the ‘fall’ of the white race to have occurred), and WE are like the Romans who hadn’t yet realized that their world had ended. I fear that the coming white awakening and reaction will, like the Trump Admin, all be too little, too late.
I commented on other articles that Trump was going to win by a landslide, and that the left would vote to secede. Here’s now an article from The Nation corroborating this idea: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/09/29/left-wing-nation-ponders-seccession-of-democrat-run-states/ .
and let’s hope they do.
Good summary of recent history by Spencer Quinn. Segregation was a good thing. Integration is racial suicide. Better complete SEPARATION than either.
Sample quote: “Our white ancestors had it right the first time. Racial segregation was not a means to oppress black people out of an inherent racism or xenophobia. It was a defensive measure aimed at protecting the white populace from a predatory race that would drag the United States into the Third World if it could. The same could be said of Apartheid South Africa.”
I hope Trump will win re-election. This would result in more hysteria and violence from the communist BLM and Antifa. We need less shallow unity, which benefits only the Jews. We need more chaos, disunity and final separation.
We need these ongoing “mostly peaceful protests” to destroy all liberal cities and states. Let Antifa arsonists burn down CA, WA and OR. Let them riot, loot and kill. Healthy Whites will return fire. Traitors can roll over and die – they deserve to perish.
Segregation was a stopgap measure doomed to fail. We need separation.
