Emmett Till’s Revenge: Federal Lynching Law Makes It Official that Black Lives Matter More than White Lives
Although it’s a statistical fact that when it comes to things such as rape, murder, and all other forms of violent crime, blacks are far more dangerous to both blacks and whites than whites are to blacks, on Tuesday our sclerotic, cadaverous, drooling, diaper-soiling President signed into law a bill that pretends the complete opposite is true. In enshrines in federal law the concept that black lives matter far more than white lives do.
The Emmett Till Antilynching [sic] Act — we’ve sacrificed so much as a nation to avoid upsetting black people that members of Congress can’t even SPELL the names of the laws they sponsor — reads in part:
Whoever conspires to commit a hate crime offense that results in death or serious bodily injury or that includes kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill shall, if death or serious bodily injury results from the offense, be imprisoned for not more than 30 years, fined in accordance with this title, or both.
Determining whether “hate” motivated a murder seems to be a fool’s errand. I’m reasonably certain that every murder is motivated by hate. But since black-on-white violence far outpaces the inverse while white-on-black “hate crimes” somehow magically outpace the inverse, any white act of violence against a black, even in self-defense, is assumed to be motivated by racial hatred, whereas the inverse is deemed to be impossible since, you know, racism is strictly a white thing.
If white people weren’t already terrified enough of defending themselves against blacks, this new law will convince them that, if attacked, the moral thing to do is to curl up in a ball and hope that their murder is quick and relatively painless.
Former Black Panther and long-running member of Congress from Illinois Bobby Rush sponsored the bill and told a reporter: “Emmett Till would’ve been 80 years old. I’m 75, and I just imagine the kinds of contributions he would have made to our society.”
Yeah, I’m imagining it, too. Since it’s an established fact that blacks are a net drain on public revenue — every year, black Americans bleed around $660 billion more from the public till than they contribute in taxes — I imagine that Emmett Till would be making net withdrawals from our society rather than “contributions.”
Rush also says that this new law would have been useful in helping deter James Fields from panicking after Dwayne Dixon pointed a rifle at him in Charlottesville in August 2017, driving into a crowd of rioters, and causing an obese white woman named Heather Heyer to suffer a heart attack. I’m not sure how “conspiring” and “hate crime” factor into that incident, but then again, I didn’t write the law, nor did I misspell its name.
Mind you, there were already laws on the books that led to Fields receiving two life sentences plus 419 years, but maybe he would have thought twice about spontaneously panicking if he knew he’d be facing an additional 10-30 years.
Others lamented that the lynching law wasn’t in effect in early 2020, when three white Georgians chased Ahmaud Arbery after he trespassed into a local house, with one of them killing him after Arbery tried to grab his shotgun, because obviously the three life sentences they already received, as well as the convictions for hate crimes for which they’ve yet to be sentenced, were not enough of a deterrent.
Morbidly obese black lawyer Damon Hewitt said, “This legislation sends a signal that, yes, the lives of Ahmaud Arbery and others lynched do matter, that the people who commit violence against them will be prosecuted under the full extent of the law.”
Clearly, if those three white Georgians knew they faced a potential 30 years in addition to their life sentences, they would have thought twice.
Emmett Till was killed in 1955. Ahmaud Arbery lost the ability to be a lifelong thug and welfare case two years ago.
Barely over a week ago, a 15-year-old white boy named Sean Toomey from Northeast Philly — which used to be known as the “Great White Northeast” — was reportedly shot dead by a trio of unidentified black males who only moments earlier had attempted to rob one woman and carjack another. According to his father, Sean had merely popped outside to grab a bottle of water from dad’s car:
I heard the two pops and I thought it was firecrackers. But it only takes a second to grab some water and get in the house and he wasn’t coming back in. So, I got curious, I put my sweatshirt on, and I went outside, and I saw him lying on my neighbor’s lawn. . . . He liked his computer. He liked watching the Eagles. He knew a lot about sports. He was a quiet, nice kid. I’m probably going to move out of here. You know, I was born and raised in this neighborhood. Now, kids are getting shot on the streets.
But again, that was two weeks ago. Old news, even though it never really became much of a news story outside of Philly.
Last Monday in New Orleans, a 73-year-old white woman named Linda Frickey was pulled out of her car by four teens that surveillance video shows to be black, but Frickey accidentally got stuck in the wheel well and was dragged for about a block, where she wound up naked, bleeding, and missing one arm. She died within minutes. According to eyewitness Mark Mascar:
I was telling her to hang in there because every time I heard a siren, I was hoping and praying it was the ambulance. I kept telling her to hang in there, breathing, her eyes were moving. I’ve never seen something so horrific.
He’s clearly never seen the postmortem pictures of Emmett Till.
According to the victim’s sister, Linda Frickey was a kind woman who would have surrendered the car to the quartet of black assailants if they’d only asked her nicely: “If they would have given her time, she would have walked away. She would have called the insurance company and the police, but she wouldn’t have fought for the car.”
It doesn’t sound like she fought, anyway. What’s the point of fighting if you’re going to spend the last 30 years of your life in prison for it?
Another Round of Reparations Won’t Fix What’s Irreparable
Eight years ago I wrote “A Reparations Plan That Makes Sense,” which noted that the term “reparations” is rooted in the word “repair,” which means “to return things to the state in which they existed before the ‘damage’ was done.” Since blacks live far longer and enjoy a much higher standard of living in America than they would if they’d never been snatched from their ancestral shitholes, to literally make reparations would require severely slashing black Americans’ longevity and personal income.
Sadly, no one took me up on my plan.
As is the case with Glenn Greenwald, Andrew Sullivan is a gay white journalist with extremely high editorial standards who realizes that while the concept of “social justice” at least appears to have started out with noble intentions, it has become everything it once purported to hate. Sullivan writes about how he was recently contacted by a booking agent for comedian Jon Stewart (born Jon Stewart Leibowitz), asking if he’d be available to do a remote interview for The Daily Show’s former host. Sullivan says he was promised that it’d be a one-on-one interview and that he’d be treated with respect.
But when Sullivan logged in remotely, he was shocked to discover that the interview was in front of a live audience and the episode was called “The Problem with White People.” Stewart — along with two self-flagellating white guests who were in the studio with him — stubbornly claimed that from 1619 until the day George Floyd farted his last fart, white people have done absolutely nothing to atone for their endless abuse and torture of blacks. There are several golden passages in Sullivan’s article about his appearance, but regarding reparations, Sullivan argues that they’ve essentially already been made:
Stewart’s claim that whites never tried to ameliorate black suffering until now requires him to dismiss over $19 trillion of public funds spent in the long War on Poverty, focused especially on black Americans. That’s the equivalent of more than 140 Marshall Plans. As Samuel Kronen has shown, it requires the erasure from history of “the Food Stamp Act of 1964, the Child Nutrition Act of 1966, the Social Security Amendments of 1965, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, the Social Security Amendments of 1962, and the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, and on and on.” . . . I’m just saying any explanation for racial disparities today is much more complex than simply intoning “white supremacy,” and implicitly dismissing any notion of other factors, or any black agency at all.
“Black agency.” That’s a phrase you don’t hear very often. It only yields 197,000 Google hits, whereas “white supremacy” produces over 11 million results.
The official cultural Gospel is that nothing bad that happens to black people is ever their fault.
And yet the idea of reparations refuses to die, because without a thousand additional Racial Marshall Plans, blacks might finally have to start blaming themselves for at least some of their problems.
More than 200 members of Congress have reportedly agreed to vote “yes” on H.R. 40, which would create a commission to research how best to financially compensate black people for the fact that they can’t seem to get their shit together no matter how much money we throw at them, how egregiously we worship them, or how much physical and verbal abuse we endure from them in the vain hope that one day they’ll feel that “justice” has finally been achieved.
But before the federal government passes a reparations law, the scam is being tried in American states and cities.
A “reparations task force” in the State of California — which entered the Union in 1850 as a free state — has recently voted in favor of providing reparations for those among the state’s 2.6 million black residents who can prove they have an ancestor who was “a chattel enslaved person or the descendant of a free Black [sic] person living in the US prior to the end of the 19th century.”
Okay, I’ll try to do the math here. The median age for American blacks is 32. Take an average black today living in California. Let’s assume that, due to their fecundity, a typical black “generation” is 18 years rather than 25 (it’s probably even less than that). That means about 126 people would have been needed to finally produce that average black (two parents, four grandparents, eight great-grandparents, 16 great-great-grandparents, 32 great-great-great grandparents, and 64 unreasonably tremendous grandparents) just to take them back one day before the cutoff line of the year 1900. That’s 126 ancestors simply to produce that average modern black, who only needs to prove that one of those 126 progenitors — the law only specifies a “person” — was black and alive somewhere in America on December 31, 1899 to qualify for reparations.
Mind you, that average 32-year-old California black could play for the Los Angeles Lakers and make $10 million dollars a year. The proposal does not require him to prove that he has actually been hobbled by slavery and white supremacy; it assumes he is merely by dint of an extremely fortuitous accident of birth.
More than 80% of voters in the wonderful lakeside city of Detroit — which was known as “The Paris of the West” before Henry Ford decided to drag in countless black scab laborers from the South to bust white unions — recently approved a “reparations commission” to research how they can strangle every remaining bit of life that they haven’t already killed in that once-great city. Apparently, some techno-prankster disrupted a reparations meeting last week:
The virtual meeting was hacked several times with displays of explicit content, including images of pornography, a video of an organ being eaten from a body and vulgarity. Dozens of residents and elected officials who spoke did so while being interrupted by the distractions.
St. Louis, Missouri — another once-great American town that is now 43.9% black and routinely tops lists of America’s most dangerous cities — passed a law last week “that creates a path for reparations to be paid to Blacks [sic] for America’s role in slavery.”
Even the tiny dilapidated town of Tullahassee, Oklahoma — current population 83 — is seeking financial reparations for the fact that its almost entirely black population allowed the burg to devolve into a horrid mess of tangled weeds, abandoned houses, and roaming dogs. White supremacy is blamed for Tullahassee’s implosion, despite the fact that the town was founded by an Indian tribe who brought their black slaves with them when they were driven out of the South along the Trail of Tears.
It’s almost impossible to deny that when one considers everything except basketball and rape, blacks tend to perform worse than all other groups.
The reason given for this, without exception, is always “white racism.”
The reason is never — not once — “black people,” although it seems more reasonable.
