Impatient At A Dinner Party

I was at a dinner party the other night and during that awkward stage when you are meeting strangers, one guy goes on for 15 minutes about the ant infestation in his apartment and I was going out of my mind with boredom, truly, I wanted to climb the walls. What are some polite ways to try to steer a conversation with two strangers when you are all going to be together for several hours that night and who knows how many times you’ll meet up again in the future?

My friends note that I am very particular, need to have everything, including conversation my way or I’m not happy.

My other problem is that when I get too involved in a discussion, I become harsh and closed off to alternative points of view.

I get overwhelmed by my implicit memories and brain encoding, stuff that is beyond my rational reach, and my emotions get stirred up and I’m either impatiently bored or out of control.

I’ve Never Heard Of A Jewish/Black/Latino/Asian Supremacist

The shooter in Kansas City yesterday, Frazier Glen Miller, is often called a “white supremacist.”

I never hear that “supremacist” term applied to rabid nationalists of other groups, only to whites.

I suspect most people view their own group as superior.

If you want to devote your life to the uplift of your group, that’s wonderful if you are Jewish or black or Chinese or Mexican, but if your group is white people, then you’re an evil white supremacist.

I put “Jewish supremacist” into Google and got 46,00 results.
“White supremacist” gave 757,000 results.
“Black supremacist” gave 52,300 results.
“Latin supremacist” gave 371 results.
“Latino supremacist” gave 2100 results.
“Asian supremacist” gave 2000 results.

In real life, I only ever hear the term “supremacist” applied to white nationalists. Most of the time, I suspect, it is not accurate, as even the most ardent white nationalist will usually agree that blacks, latinos, asians, Jews, etc outdo whites at many different things.

The phrase “white supremacist” begs the question — supreme at what? Different races have different gifts on average. Every time I hear the term “white supremacist”, it is used as a slur and not at all accurately.

When I review the Wikipedia entry on Frazier Glen Miller, I find that I agree with him about half the time (the need for whites to organize in their group interests) and loathe his views about half the time (his hatred of Jews, blacks and the United States government). I suspect that the woman who strangled her seven kids held views that half of the population agreed with much of the time. Just agreeing on some points with somebody loathsome does not mean much. It’s just an uncomfortable feeling.

James Fulford writes:

A shooting rampage in Kansas has produced some unusually accurate reporting in the Main Stream Media. Reports identify the race of the shooter, race (or religion or ethnicity, if you prefer) of the victims, and the ideology behind the attack. That’s because the shooter was white:

Police arrest ‘raging anti-Semite’ in Kansas Jewish center shootings
By Saeed Ahmed, Ashley Fantz and Catherine E. Shoichet, CNN, Mon April 14, 2014
White supremacist ID’d as gunman in deadly shootings at Jewish centers
FoxNews.com, Published April 14, 2014
In contrast, when a black person shoots large numbers of people out of hatred of whites, it’s a constant struggle to find out if they’re black at all. Even then, their motives don’t appear, or are suppressed by the MSM, or denied by the police.

A classic anti-Semitic hate crime which was also an “Immigrant Mass Murder”, was the Empire State Building shooting by Ali Abu Kamal in 1997. Kamal was a Palestinian terrorist who hated the US for its support of Israel, went to New York and shot 7 people. See 1997 Empire State Building Shooter And The NYPD.

But the rare terrorist who can be linked to the “right wing”, like the Holocaust Museum Shooting, is happily promoted by the media.

A white prisoner writes:

I cannot think of a single white gang here in Texas prisons that started on the outside. That is simply not the way the vast majority of our people live. And even now, after many years of existence, essentially none of these gangs has any true organization beyond these walls. This is not the case with the non-white gangs. The Crips, Bloods, Gangster Disciples, Mexican Mafia, Texas Syndicate, Raza United, and Azteca — just to name a few — are vast criminal empires. Most started outside prison as criminal gangs and simply maintain their structure on both sides of the wall.

White gangs are lumped in with criminal gangs of this kind, but even worse, they are the only ones labeled as “racist” or “supremacist.” So the irony is that although most of the blacks and Hispanics come here as full members of racially exclusive street/prison gangs who hate whites, we are the ones who are called “haters.”

The administration understands this, of course, but claims it has no control over how they classify us. At the same time, most of the lower-level guards are non-whites who share the same enmity towards us as the other prisoners.

The courts have ruled that no matter how much sense it would make to separate prisoners by race, that is impossible because it would be discrimination against minorities. It does not matter that whites are the ones who suffer most from integration, society must protect the “civil rights” of those who prey on us. The irony is that most of the young whites who suddenly find themselves in this hell never had a “racist” or “hateful” thought until they came to prison and learned the truth.

Whites therefore join prison gangs because they want to survive. They need comrades in a hostile world. They are knowingly put in a position in which, in order to survive with any dignity or self-respect, they must take steps that will leave them labeled as “haters” and even “terrorists.”

There are other consequences. No one in seg can take part in rehabilitation — no education, job training, or drug abuse programs for us. Since all candidates for parole are expected to have gone through programs of this kind, the consequence is that as a “confirmed” gang member in seg, I have no chance of parole. At the same time, all the experts will tell you that training of this kind helps inmates return to society, but there is none of that for us.

Jewish Eugenics

Chaim Amalek writes: “What is the idea of “yicchus”, if not a poor man’s attempt at eugenics? Also, every sensible human being practices eugenics to the fullest extent of his abilities (social, economic, etc.) when selecting a mate. And everyone knows this. Here again, the Jews can lead the way in providing goyim with space in which to make the obvious case.”

John Derbyshire writes:

The contradiction between the vigorous, unapologetic ethnonationalism of Jews in Israel and the horror of other peoples’ ethnonationalism expressed by Jews elsewhere has been a recurrent topic here on VDARE.com—see, most recently, Is Immigration Really A ‘Jewish Value’? by Kevin MacDonald.

I think this contradiction is not hard to understand. If you are the ethnic majority in a nation, it is natural to wish to maintain the dominance of your ethny; if you belong to a minority ethny, especially one with as sorrowful a history as the Jews, it is just as natural to be hostile to the dominance of any other.

But these simple truths need restating, because the very peculiar cultural history of the Western world through the past few decades, leading to the widespread state of mind among whites that I call ethnomasochism, has made them nonobvious.

Cooper Sterling, writing, three years ago on VDARE.com, described a different, but related, contradiction—he used the word “paradox”—also concerning Jews.

“Since the 1960s, a prominent group of Jewish public intellectuals has been systematically and unscrupulously campaigning to discredit eugenics—but, in a great paradox, other Jewish intellectuals, and Zionists, have been actively interested in eugenic principles, both historically and currently, to secure the posterity—health and wellbeing—of Jews. Collectively, it amounts to a case of Do As I Say—Not As I Do.”

The Shooting In Kansas City

My Jewish friend says about the shooting at the Jewish Community Center in Kansas City: “It’s an isolated incident… That’s what they said about Auschwitz. It’s a one-time thing.”

Chaim Amalek: “Sometime in the late seventies the Holocaust became one of the three pillars of mainstream American Jewish life, the other two being liberal politics and Israel. Please advise your friend that the New Goyim flooding into this country do not give a darn about the former or the latter, and insofar as liberal politics is now associated with men kissing men on the mouth and marrying them, they don’t much care about the third leg, either.”

“You spend far too much time engaged in morbid introspection when you should be focused on saving the white race, America, and getting laid. These are manly pursuits whereas introspection and talking about your feelings like a woman are not.”

Start Fighting Back!

By Robert Oscar Lopez:

While the horror show involving Brendan Eich, Proposition 8, and Mozilla was reaching its ignominious crescendo, I was in Milan, Italy, speaking before an energized crowd of activists in the Lombardy region’s county hall.

Unaware of the witch hunt carried out by McCarthy’s rainbow-brandishing gay great-grandsons in Silicon Valley, a middle-aged man came forward and cried out in Italian, “Is it just me, or is the gay lobby imposing a dictatorship on us with their so-called scientific experts?”

The science to which he referred wasn’t JavaScript, but rather psychology and pediatrics. He was referring to homosexual activists’ constant invocation of research supposedly proving that kids don’t need a mom and a dad, because scientists in lab coats with horrendous conflicts of interest publish peer-reviewed papers claiming that the statistics prove that children can be removed from a parent and still be “well-adjusted.”

I asked the audience: “Enough of gays saying they feel offended all the time. How do they think I feel when they tell me, someone raised by lesbians, I don’t have a right to my father, because of experts and their supposed research?” Applause, applause. The clock struck 10:00 PM in Italy.

“They don’t want to be told whom to love. So who are they to tell children who aren’t theirs that they have to love two gay adults and can’t love a biological parent the adults cut out of their lives?”

Congratulations on your recent conversion to White Nationalism

Nationalists come in many shapes and sizes. The government of Israel is nationalist. Nazis are nationalists. People on the political right such as Republicans tend to be nationalists. People on the left tend to more ideological commitments such as socialism, classism, and anti-racism. Ku Klux Klanners like the guy who shot and killed three Jews in Kansas City are nationalists. Some nationalists are evil and some are good just like some of those whose primary allegiance is religious or ideological rather than national are sometimes good people and sometimes bad. Supporters of the Democratic party in America tend to be egalitarians, believing that races and groups are born with equal aptitudes and that it is environment that primarily shapes them. Supporters of Stalin and Mao had these same views. So egalitarians and nationalists come in many shapes and sizes. Some black nationalists do evil, some Jewish nationalists do evil, and some white nationalists do evil. Simply supporting your group and putting your primary allegiance to your group, whether your group is national, racial, social, religious or ideological, is not necessarily good or evil.

The type of nationalism I support is law-abiding. It seeks nothing for its own group that it does not also welcome for others. My nationalism stands for good will towards all, and that every group needs to organize in their group interest including whites. If whites don’t start organizing, they will go the way of South African whites and Rhodesian whites.

Almost all mass evil committed in the world over the past 60 years, aside from communism, has been done on the basis of blood, not ideology. This sounds like a strong argument against nationalism, except you could also say that almost all mass evil was committed by people who breathe. Identifying and sacrificing for your own kind in preference to those who are different is wired into our DNA. The most effective way of overcoming it is with strong religious ties. Fellow Jews, fellow Muslims, fellow Adventists, look out for each other (some groups, such as Jews, much more effectively than others).

Barry emails:

Hello Luke:

Your interview with Kevin MacDonald was a tour de force. Outstanding.

I’ve hugely enjoyed your articles on porn, Judaism and much else over the years. Interviewing is your main skill through. They remind me of an early BBC series called Face to Face with John Freeman.

It strikes me that you are a consummate journalist with an insatiable curiousity. Unfortunately that is why you could never hold a job down in journalism.

Journalism will forgive anything – except curiousity.

The main skill you need in journalism is fitting in and you do that by constantly status-signalling the most conventional beliefs.

As one journalist told me. The key to getting a reputation as a fearless muckraker is not to upset anyone. Or anyone powerful anyway. You forgot that second bit Luke.

Actually journalism doesn’t need journalists anymore. It needs narrative shapers, opinion formers, marketers.

The other problem is that you think the truth will protect you. But the truth is not important. Social conformity is – fitting in is.

You are like the guy in this video who does not get it – he keeps blurting out the truth.

How would you fit in this environment Luke? It would be a comedy in itself! ….

Congratulations on becoming a white nationalist. It took me a while too. You were too wedded to the truth not to get it eventually.

Three people killed in Kansas Jewish centers day before Passover

Report:

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas (Reuters) – Three people were killed Sunday afternoon at two different Jewish community facilities in a Kansas City-area suburb, and a man was in custody as authorities investigated whether or not the shootings were anti-Semitic, authorities said.

Police said it was too early to determine a motive for the shootings, but they were not ruling out the possibility that the shootings were a hate crime. They have called in the Federal Bureau of Investigation to assist with the investigation, Overland Park Police Chief John Douglass said in a news conference.

“We know it’s a vicious act of violence. Obviously two Jewish facilities, one might make that assumption.” Douglass said.

Why do people hate Jews? Here are some thoughts from the Amazon.com page for the book Why The Jews? The Reason For Antisemitism:

The very word Jew continues to arouse passions as does no other religious, national, or political name. Why have Jews been the object of the most enduring and universal hatred in history? Why did Hitler consider murdering Jews more important than winning World War II? Why has the United Nations devoted more time to tiny Israel than to any other nation on earth?
In this seminal study, Dennis Prager and Joseph Telushkin attempt to uncover and understand the roots of antisemitism — from the ancient world to the Holocaust to the current crisis in the Middle East. This postmillennial edition of Why the Jews? offers new insights and unparalleled perspectives on some of the most recent, pressing developments in the contemporary world, including:

• The replicating of Nazi antisemitism in the Arab world
• The pervasive anti-Zionism/antisemitism on university campuses
• The rise of antisemitism in Europe
• Why the United States and Israel are linked in the minds of antisemites

For many years until his death in 2002, William Pierce (bio) led the National Alliance, which according to the Anti-Defamation League, was “the single most dangerous organized hate group in the United States today.”

According to Pierce, whites are committing suicide and the Jews, more than anyone, are responsible. In one radio commentary, he noted how much thoughtful mail he got urging him to go easy on Jews. Pierce argued that you have to see the forest, not just the trees.

According to Pierce in 1998, “if one looks into every destructive institution in our society, if one looks behind every destructive policy, one finds non-Jews as well as Jews. The ruinous immigration policy we have now in the United States is favored by some Gentiles as well as by virtually all Jews.”

Hmm. I suspect that most Jews in America oppose high rates of illegal immigration. On the other hand, despite Stephen Steinlight‘s efforts, every major Jewish organization taking a position on immigration favors amnesty and essentially open borders.

Pierce did not indiscriminately and primarily blame Jews for every ill in America: “If we look into the destructive exploitation of our natural environment, the cutting down of our forests and the strip-mining of our land and the polluting of our rivers, we probably will find greedy and short-sighted Gentile profiteers more often than we will find Jews.”

If you look at the environmental movement, you will find a disproportionate number of Jews. If you look at animal rights, you will again find a disproportionate number of Jews.

What is the most powerful institution in America today? According to Pierce, it is the news media and the news media is disproportionately owned and directed by Jews (almost none of them Orthodox, almost all of them secular, few of them practice the dictates of the Jewish religion such as keeping kosher, the Sabbath, and strapping on tefillin every day).

So why are there so many Jews in influential positions in the media? Because Ashkenazi Jews in particular have a way above average verbal intelligence, they come from a storytelling tradition, and they have more of an intense drive for success, prestige and the transmission of ideas than do non-Jews (because down deep, Jews fear that if they don’t dominate social discourse, if they don’t set the parameter of what is socially acceptable to publicly discuss, people unfriendly to Jews will and that will lead to another Auschwitz).

Jews in the media disagree about many things but they do tend to collectively shape what is OK to talk about publicly, and one of the things that is not OK to talk about publicly is Jewish influence in the media. Another thing that is unacceptable to talk about publicly is racial differences such as Jewish intelligence. Jews generally fear that such talk will lead to another holocaust.

Non-Jew Steve Sailer wrote in 2010:

To quantify the statement that “Jews are a small group, but influential in their areas of concentration,” in 2009, the Atlantic Monthly came up with a list of the top 50 opinion pundits: half are of Jewish background.
Over 1/3rd of the 2009 Forbes 400 are of Jewish background, according to the Jewish Telegraph Agency’s reporter who covers Jewish philanthropy.

Joel Stein of the LA Times found in 2007 that people of Jewish background hold a large majority of the most powerful positions in Hollywood.

This is not to say that influential Jews are at all united in what they favor. On the other hand, it is more or less true that Jews hold something of a veto over what topics are considered appropriate for discussion in the press, Jewish influence itself being the most obvious example of a topic that is off the table in polite society.

I have Jewish friends who’ve lost Jewish friends due to their fascination with Kevin MacDonald’s critiques of the Jews.

The Adoption Of Civic Virtue

I admire the work ethic that leads latinos to rob the recycling bins we put out at night to take from that which was supposed to fund city services. Only racists want to launch an assimilation campaign urging the adoption of civic virtue. After all, aren’t these latinos Americans, or at least undocumented workers, with strong family values who pay taxes and deserve a share of the American dream?

Chaim Amalek: “Jennifer, every comely young white woman has it within her power to visit Luke in LA and prevent this new political party from taking off, simply by keeping him too busy…to engage in political action. Comely young White Woman, Know This! The fate of millions may be determined by what happens [with you and Luke].”

Mike: “It’s all in good fun. Wisely, we don’t seriously allege that a group that we’re hankerin’ to merge with …. has an unspecified, built-in set moral shortcomings. It could piss off the potential in-laws. I leave this thought incomplete now, and exit the stage again ’til the trumpets call me back.”

If there’s a cause that will make my name stink to high heaven, I’m on it like blacks on blondes. There’s just something about marginalized sub-cultures that grabs my attention.

What’s The Point Of Group Pride?

Many of my friends say, “White pride? I don’t get it.”

Until a few weeks ago, I too had disgust for “white pride” and “black pride” and “brown pride” and “gay pride”, though I did totally get “Jewish pride” because, let’s face it, we’re awesome. We’re God’s Chosen People.

Then I read this Tom Wolfe lecture he gave in 2006 where he pointed out: “Each individual adopts a set of values which, if truly absolute in the world – so ordained by some almighty force – would make not that individual but his group…the best of all possible groups, the best of all inner circles.”

I saw truth in that. I remember when I was a believing Seventh-Day Adventist, I looked at the world through a prism where my group came out on top — because of our length of life, purity of living, Biblical knowledge, our heavenly salvation, our divine choseness.

Then I fell into marxism and I saw marxists intellectuals as humanity’s elite, the vanguard of a better future.

Then I fell for Dennis Prager and Judaism. I saw Dennis Prager as the greatest of all living intellectuals and I treasured that I knew him. I initially converted through Reform Judaism, and while I never saw Reform Judaism as the superior way of practicing Judaism, I tried to look at things as Dennis did and I tried to see all three Jewish denominations as having unique gifts.

By year 2000, I affiliated exclusively Orthodox and quickly saw Orthodoxy as the pinnacle of religious expression.

In my longtime work choice of journalist, I saw that as the coolest possible profession because you get the inside goods on how the world works.

When I entered therapy and racked up years in it, I came to see that as almost essential to leading a conscious life.

So whether or not we come out and say we have white or black or Jewish or brown pride, most of us tend to see the world through the lens of what will make our group come out on top. People are more comfortable with their own kind. People choose to live among people who are most genetically similar to them (whites choose to live among whites, blacks among blacks, latinos among latinos, asians among asians) and people will generally make more sacrifices for people who are genetically similar to them than for those who are different (step-children are invariably treated worse, statistically, than biological children, etc).

As the late Samuel Francis said: “The civilization that we as whites created in Europe and America could not have developed apart from the genetic endowments of the creating people, nor is there any reason to believe that the civilization can be successfully transmitted to a different people.”

The Japanese, for instance, have taken on many of the forms of democracy but they remain a uniquely Japanese nation completely different from western states.

Is race skin-deep? No. In 60 life history outcomes of things like IQ, athletic ability, STD rates, crime rates, credit scores, academic tests, income, complexity of social structure, brain size, body fat percentage, amount of sex you have, predisposition to monogamy and socializing, length of life, the three main races of Caucasian, Oriental and black always fall out the same way with blacks and Orientals on the extremes and whites in between but closer to Orientals.

There’s no superior race, but the different races are, on average, superior at different things. Different peoples have different gifts.

We can choose to be indifferent to evolution but evolution is never indifferent to us. Groups that adapt and reproduce and grow in power inevitably subjugate those who are less successful at these things, and it really does not matter how nice anyone is to out-groups. The Pilgrims came to America determined to treat the Indians well as opposed to the cruel Spaniards, but when they arrived and set up camp, the Indians grew suspicious and seeing accurately that they would be competing for the same land, repeatedly tried to exterminate the Pilgrims, who survived and eventually conquered the Indians, subjugated them, and took control of their land. It really didn’t matter how nice the Indians or the Pilgrims were to each other. In the end, one group was going to take control of the land and the other group was going to be largely wiped out. That’s how the world works. At current demographic rates, whites in America are headed for the same fate as the Indians, unless whites begin to organize in their group interest.

Hundreds of whites who’ve never thought about being white are now thinking about being white in California because latinos are now the biggest group. When the country was 90% white, whites didn’t worry about themselves as whites. They just saw all the different types of whites — from Russians to Scots to Brits to Australians to Finns, etc, but now that whites are increasingly in the minority in many parts of America, whites are discovery what they have in common with other whites (an individualist bent for those of Northern European stock, obeying and respecting the law and one’s teachers at a much higher rate than do blacks and latinos, focusing on work, education and family, veneration for our country’s founders and for Christianity, stigmatizing welfare, STDs and out-of-wedlock births, the pursuit of books and intellectual interests, etc).

If two whites are at a party that is otherwise blacks acting black (on balance, blacks are more outgoing, social, voluble, loud, forthright, rhetorically skilled, better at improvisation and putting on a show, etc than non-blacks), they may well discover they have a lot in common solely on the basis of their race.

What do I think about gender-based pride? It seems really silly to me, but on the other hand, I thank God every morning, as required by Judaism, that I was not born a woman. The Torah commands me to take sex-based pride.

As Jared Taylor wrote:

Humans have an exquisite sensitivity to differences between their group and other groups. Group conflict is as old as our species. Humans are prepared to fight each other for all kinds of reasons: ethnicity, language, nationality, religion, and even for political reasons, but of all the kinds of conflict, racial conflict is the most chronic and difficult to control, and that’s because race is part of biology. It is immediately visible, and is usually an indicator of differences in behavior and culture and not just a difference in appearance.

Wherever you find people of more than one race trying to share the same territory, there is conflict.

Feel Your Feelings!

LCSW Kathy Henry says:

Do you really feel your feelings? Do you allow yourself to feel the depths of your emotions? My guess is, probably not. There is a lot at stake!! If you allow yourself to be open and feel the full extent of your feelings, you might feel crazy, out of control, or be faced with some decisions you need to make about your life that you aren’t ready to face!

Most of us didn’t learn how to feel and express our emotions. A lot of times our feelings weren’t convenient for our parents, siblings, friends, etc., so we learned to suppress them. So when they start to come up later in life, they are so powerful that our instinct is to keep them inside and tightly controlled. It makes sense, until . . . .

Picture a full 2 liter Coke bottle. The carbonation represents your feelings. 2 liter pic is fine as long as it goes undisturbed. But if you shake it up, it bubbles up and we all know what is going to happen if we try to open it – it all gushes out at once! Your feelings are the same way. You keep them stuffed down inside and all is well until you go to try to express some strong feelings, then they all start coming out at once! You are just as overwhelmed and confused as the person you are expressing those feelings to! And they are messy, aren’t they?

The point is, that it is supremely important for us to allow ourselves to feel our feelings. Why don’t we? Because it is a scary, uncontrolled and messy process. If you want a healthy, free, and peaceful life and good relationships, however, you’re going to have to let your emotions come out!

According to the book, Predisposed: Liberals, Conservatives, and the Biology of Political Differences, liberals have more expressive faces.

The authors add: “Our big brains are better equipped to spin a story that denies the relevance of biological forces than to negate biological forces.”

I suspect that most of us have many feelings we don’t want to face so we wall them off. Many of these feelings have to do with race. For instance, I am curious if morality and conscience require the ability for abstract thought (ie, an IQ north of 90)? The higher the IQ, for instance, the more clearly a person can recall the past and see into the future, to therefore have loyalty and gratitude, to use the subjunctive (if everyone does what I am about to do, the world will be a better or worse place), and see the benefits of cooperation. Lower IQ people, therefore, are less likely to have a developed conscience and deserve much closer minding.

I read this disturbing essay by a university professor who has taught philosophy in Africa for three decades and it laid out a lot of things that most of my peers would never want to struggle with.

The word “racism” wasn’t invented until the 1930s and it didn’t gain common currency until the 1960s. Prior to the 1960s, attitudes and behaviors that now get labeled racist, such as segregation, were regarded as common sense. Human nature hasn’t changed since the 1960s, but norms of behavior have in the western world so many expressions and choices that were common before the 1960s are now regarded as the worst thing in the world, such as wanting to keep your children away from blacks.

Similarly, prior to World War II, it was common for white people to have pride in being white and to have pride in western civilization. Then that pride came tumbling down.

South African whites, for instance, still had the ability to rule their country in the 1990s, but they gave up that power. They lost their confidence and as a result, the country went to hell and many of them moved out. The same sort of dynamics are happening now in America. Traditional Americans have lost their pride in being white. Instead, many of them feel guilty about it. And every year, the nation becomes less white. Schools that used to be named for Thomas Jefferson now get named for Martin Luther King and Cesar Chavez.

Just under the surface, however, of these forbidden feelings of white pride and preference for one’s own kind, nature is not denied. Genetic similarity still exacts a powerful tug on everybody’s psyche. When it comes to choosing a place to live, America is as segregated as ever. Once a neighborhood becomes more than 10-20% black or latino, for instance, whites move out.

Most whites are careful to say nothing politically incorrect in public for fear of loss of status, loss of friends, and loss of job, but once they get started talking truths, as they see them, about race, they often find they can’t stop. As Kathy Henry wrote: “You keep them stuffed down inside and all is well until you go to try to express some strong feelings, then they all start coming out at once!”

It’s not easy, but any smart person can convert to Orthodox Judaism, but once you finish the formal process, you realize that while joining a religion may be relatively easy, joining a particular people is much more challenging. You likely have different genes from your co-religionists. Judaism isn’t in your blood. You don’t have those sacred familial ties. You might have a piece of paper that says you’ve joined the tribe, but have you really? Are you accepted? Are you counted as one of us?
