Who said: “… it’s more dangerous to be black in America… it’s more dangerous in that you’re substantially more likely to end up in a situation where the police don’t respect you where you could easily get killed. I think sometimes for whites it’s difficult to appreciate how real that is.
“It took me a long time, and a number of people talking to me through the years to get a sense of this … If you are a normal, white American, the truth is you don’t understand being black in America and you instinctively under-estimate the level of discrimination and the level of additional risk.”
This is like saying: “you don’t understand anything about George Washington because you didn’t live when he did”. It’s a non-sequitur, the logical fallacy of saying something true then wrongly accepting anything that comes after it as true too. Newt Gingrich said it and it’s false.
OBAMA DID NOT GROW UP BLACK
Obama believes it even though he didn’t grow up black. His mother is white. He was raised in Indonesia by his white mother and an Indonesian step father. Then he was raised in Hawaii by two white grandparents. He went to a non-black school in Hawaii. He went to predominantly white Occidental college in essentially white California, then to essentially white Manhattan to non-black Columbia then to non-black majority Boston where he went to essentially white Harvard. Obama did not grow up in a black majority culture. He did not grow up black like other prominent black leaders like Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson.
From Ilana Mercer: “Issued from Poland, of all places, Obama had lamented the recent “police shooting deaths of two black men in Louisiana and Minnesota,” saying that these “should trouble all Americans,” as they “reflect deep-seated racial disparities in the U.S. criminal justice system.”
Conveniently, on July 9, Obama was quick to issue a different ruling: “We cannot let the actions of a few define all of us,” he declared, post Dallas. As his objective, Dallas shooter Micah Xavier Johnson stated “he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.” Yet the disjunction promoted by this dreadful cur of a president has been that white-on-black criminal acts are indicative of root-and-branch racism; not the obverse.
The “Illusory Superiority” of the first acting black president proves The Dunning–Kruger effect which is his cognitive bias in which relatively unskilled persons suffer illusory superiority, mistakenly assessing their ability to be much higher than it really is. Dunning and Kruger attributed this bias to a metacognitive inability of the unskilled to recognize their own ineptitude and evaluate their own ability accurately. Their research also suggests corollaries: highly skilled individuals may underestimate their relative competence and may erroneously assume that tasks which are easy for them are also easy for others.
The Downing effect describes the tendency of people with below average intelligence quotients (IQs) to overestimate their intelligence, and of people with above average intelligence to underestimate their intelligence. An individual’s predictable propensity to misjudge their own intelligence was first noted by C. L. Downing who conducted the first cross cultural studies on perceived intelligence.
We “know” that science has proved that statistical differences among the races are all due to a vast conspiracy to plunder blacks. Nothing makes 21st-century people who think they are white richer than having a lot of black bodies around. Just ask MacArthur genius Ta-Nehisi Coates. He’ll tell you.
Illana: “Obama’s affront to America is his racial particularism. At issue here are Obama’s snide, systematic interventions to collectively impugn White America. He and his first attorney general, Eric Holder, have been like two pimps in a pod in their rush to racialize law-and-order incidents. Holder even declared: “I am the attorney general of the United States, but I am also a black man.” (The unfit, fanatically Islamophilic Loretta Lynch, confirmed by Republicans, is living up to the racial mantle of her buddy, Holder.)
“And the president of black America and his Department of Justice posse have been mum about black-on-white crime—from America’s perennial race riots and their signature sock-it-to-cracker knockout game, documented in ghastly detail by veteran journalist Colin Flaherty, to what Thomas Sowell has excoriated as the ongoing “orchestrated racial attacks” against persons and property not black: “either whites in general or people of Asian ancestry.”
“This president boils with anti-white bile. It spills over into his books and is evident in his deeds.
“In my new book, “The Trump Revolution: The Donald’s Creative Destruction Deconstructed,” I argue that Americans are tired of being racially upbraided. Trump’s silenced majority is sick of being falsely accused of racial infractions of which it is innocent.
Take it from this immigrant: American society is not racist. If anything, Americans are racial or ethno-masochists, dangerously prostrating themselves and their progeny in the name of politically correct pieties.
“Why are there all these puzzling statistics that don’t agree with the stereotypes promoted by our national leaders?”
And yet, here’s a statistic published in 2011 that doesn’t support the Coates-Obama orthodoxy:
YOUNG BLACK MALES…….
“While young black males have accounted for about 1% of the population from 1980 to 2008…(b)y 2008, young black males made up about a quarter of all homicide oﬀenders (27%)”
