The American Jizya

It used to be that social reformers would talk about the day when racism has been eliminated from society. They would quote Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech, suggesting the goal was a colorblind society. The only people to say this today are clueless civic nationalists and so-called conservative pundits. The former are always behind the times and the latter is here to run cover for the Left. In the game of racism, the caravan has moved onto a new wave, the third wave of anti-racism.

Like feminism, anti-racism has reinvented itself to meet the challenges of the multicultural age, particularly in light of the new demographics. Blacks griping about whites is not of much use when you have varieties of Hispanic, Muslims, Asians, Jews and lifestyle degenerates. The new challenges of the majority-minority empire require a new kind of anti-racism and a new kind of racism for it to oppose. The new racism is exotic and mysterious, while the anti-racist is fighting a spiritual fight, not a legal one.

Eric Hoffer made the observation that people involved in causes never reach a point where they say the cause has achieved its goals and therefore can disband and cease its activities. For example, anti-smoking zealots have accomplished all that can be accomplished, yet they persist. The same is true of drunk driving activists. Short of martial law, there is not much left to do about drunk driving and smoking. Yet, the pressure groups behind these causes still raise money and agitate for attention.

The same thing has happened with the various causes of Progressivism. Something like environmentalism has evolved into a weird nature cult, with apocalyptic predictions backed by flimsy science. Feminism is pretty much a nonsensical collection of tantrums sporting bizarre lingo and outfits. Anti-racism has moved from demands for equity before the law and mitigation for past racism, to a semi-permanent regime that includes groups, who voluntarily left their home lands for the white nations they now despise.

As a practical matter, so-called “third wave anti-racism” is really just a demand by non-whites that whites mitigate the realities of biology. They can’t say that so they have to use weird language and comical neologisms. The demand is that whites exhaust themselves maintaining a white bourgeois society, so that non-whites can enjoy first world comfort, without actually having to maintain it themselves. The new white man’s burden is whites living as despised helots in the societies they created.

For example, whites are supposed to solve the black crime problem, but not notice that black men commit a lot of crime. No one is supposed to mention that blacks don’t cooperate with police. The justification for the former is the history of racism, while the latter is excused as blacks not wanting to attract attention to the black community. Whites are supposed to work around the realities of the black community, while mitigating the realities of the black community. This is impossible and unreasonable.

Another example is how non-whites expect to be allowed into elite schools. In the name of diversity, the elite colleges decorate each class with vibrancy. The professors are expected to make sure these students graduate and never mention that they make up the bottom third of the class. Once out in the world, the process starts over as law firms hoover up non-whites to meet their diversity quota. Of course, no one is supposed to notice that these lawyers are not very good at being lawyers.

Then you have the central tenet of third wave anti-racism, which is that whites, just by being white, are a burden on non-whites. Because whites want the best for their kids and want to live in safe neighborhoods, it means they live in places without convenient bus service. This is a burden on non-whites, as they don’t have easy access to whites and the societies they create. This is so-called white privilege. The only way to eliminate this is to eliminate white behavior, which would end the modern society.

Instead, the new anti-racism regime is one where every white person is born guilty, tainted by the original sin of white racism. Therefore, just as man was condemned to toil outside of the Garden of Eden for eternity, whites are now condemned to pay the jizya in order to keep non-whites in comfortable modern lifestyles. That means open borders for formerly white countries and a metastasizing set of rules to govern the thoughts and speech of whites. The American jizya is about keeping non-whites happy.

That’s the core argument of Ta-Nahesi Coates. In his jeremiad in favor of reparations, you’ll note he never actually puts a number on it. Reparations are, by definition, about making the other party whole. Coates rejects that such a number exists, because what he means by reparations is actually a recitation. He demands an endless recitation of the crimes committed by whites against blacks. This is to both punish whites in a material sense and to remind them that they are now in the inferior position.

In order to understand the social justice movement, one must first replace the word “justice” with the word “vengeance.” It’s not about settling the books or making anyone whole. It is about establishing a new hierarchy in which whites are the infidels of the new multicultural empire, forever paying the jizya to keep modern society rolling. The point of the tax is not just to finance the system, but to lock in the moral relationships of the new multicultural empire, because it cannot exist without the jizya.

Excellent post. Regarding the law students referenced, law firms will hoover up very few of them, and only the top performers. Most will affirmative action their way straight into pretty plum government jobs in the administrative state.

Had the pleasure of meeting Amy Wax and listen to her talk about her experiences at Penn. Particularly when she touched the third rail of mentioning in public that she’d never seen certain minorities in the top half of the graduating classes. Of course the Borg swooped in loudly asserted that was not true, but of course absent any statistical back up. But, as she explained they loudly asserted she we talking out of her ass with no basis of experience. Save, as she pointed out, running the summer associateship program for years and seeing all the class rankings.

You mentioned Eric Hoffer who nailed all of these grievance movements perfectly.

“Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.”

In the past, people recognized the racket and ignored it (until we let women vote and ended up with Prohibition). Now the Left is trying to ride the grievance racket into permanent power.

How it all plays out will depend on how much legitimacy this worldview has in the minds of whites. Deligitimizing it, just relentlessly shitting on it and tearing it apart, is job one.

The Zman said that we are “despised helots.” True, but remember the most famous quote about the helots, that they would gladly “eat the Spartans raw.” If we can get white people in their millions to cast out the white-hating mind virus, and bring them up to the eat-them-raw level, then events will take care of themselves.

For many years, when I’ve heard talk about reparations for blacks, I’ve thought, “hmmm…maybe, just maybe I’m in favor of a one-time payment to every black who’s ancestry traces back to slavery.” But only if we can permanently be done with black grievances against whites, including no more affirmative action, preferences, quotas, all race-based policies designed to “lift blacks.”

Now, of course, an older, wiser me knows we’ll never be permanently done with the black grievance industry. With blacks, no matter what you do, it’s never enough.

The flipside of reparations – which few whites talk about yet (save Fred Reed) – are the immense royalties and licensing fees due to European civilization and its pale-skinned inhabitants – for inventing the modern world. If blacks demand reparations, then people of European descent – whites – ought to demand compensation from anyone who uses anything that was invented by European civilization – from radios to penicillin, and so on. What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander….

Yes, but they don’t know what your starting peak concentration was from projecting backwards. They don’t know if you were drinking two hours ago. Your low rate now could be the result of a lower (below the limit) initial peak from one hour before. Otherwise, if they projected backwards far enough, everyone would have blood made of pure alcohol.

Unlike progressives, conservatives do take principles seriously and are slow to change theirs. Way back when I was a kid, they went ahead and agreed the MLK’s standard of judging people by “the content of their character” would be the standard going forward.

The Left kept that standard for maybe a decade then tossed it away in favor of race-racketeering.

Interesting point on the tuition fees. I’ve read that there are large numbers of Orientals in the Ivies because they end up putting more money in the school coffers than Americans. The almighty dollar is probably playing a role in which POC’s get admitted. The son of some African kleptocrat is more lucrative than some affirmative action scholarship Negro.

East Asians cheat by memorizing standardized tests commencing immediately after the last administration. This buys them a lot of extra time on the new or revised questions. Cram schools pay intelligent Asian students to take admissions exams like MCAT/LSAT/GMAT etc. for programs the student is disinterested in pursuing. Students are asked to memorize verbatim one pre-assigned enumerated question and, after the exam, to regurgitate that specific question. Multiple students are assigned to cover each numbered question, so the test revealed is nearly perfectly disclosed. The students are paid more than USD500 per instance and they are eligble for increased compensation… Read more »

Couple years ago had this conversation with an asst. admissions director for one of the public Ivies. The school had a development/recruiting office in China–and I’d done a bit of business there in the past. He would never be direct, but with enough questioning it was clear just how much money they make with full tuition payments, special “immersion” programs, special housing, summer programs etc with these students. And, knowing Chinese culture, no shortage of under the table payments.

I’ve worked in engineering for a long time. Twenty or thirty years ago, we’d hire a black college guy and make an honest attempt to integrate.Train them, retrain them, etc… Never worked out, not even once. So they’d get fired. But for the past 10 years, maybe longer, we go through the same song and dance but now we no longer fire them. The company is much bigger now so we find them a lower level position, typically something a high school kid could do. Of course they get a nice fat salary, 3 or 4 times what we’d pay… Read more »

I actually saw this play out in a civil engineering firm. The soil technician slots go to a lot of people (not actually engineers) who limped over the minority-hiring threshold. They give them formulas and processes and hope the techs follow them. But the techs don’t understand what they’re measuring or why, so anything non-routine throws them off and it’s a huge, costly mistake. But the minority techs just keep blundering on because everybody’s terrified of firing them.

I live in SF. Lots and lots of Chinese cram schools and private schools. Test taking practice is even part of their curriculum during the regular school day…

Preschoolers practice test taking for elementary school, elementary for middle, middle for HS and HS for university.

Many SF public schools are now special Chinese immersion ed programs. These are not for immigrants but for USA born Chinese so they can filter out non Chinese. They are no more interested in diversity than we are.

It isn’t immigration it’s colonization.

All of the insanity referenced in this post is enabled by the affluence of modernity, which allows society to carry vast amounts of deadweight. The Congress has become a perfect metaphor for this affliction, as easily a third of its members are clinically retarded or overtly corrupt, and likely would not survive 20 minutes in the ancestral environment of our evolution. Yet now, we not only subsidize these idiots, but elevate them to leadership status. The insanity will continue until the gravy train runs out of gas.

White Americans have been paying the jizya for longer than some have been breathing air — since 1965 at least. They have paid by having to accept a government encouraging massive nonwhite immigration to replace themselves. They have spent their tax money and borrowed more on top of that for endless programs in housing, education, and affirmative-action hiring as payoffs to blacks not to riot. Huge and costly federal and state bureaucracies have been created as pretend-work sinecures for “persons of color.” Many whites have paid with their lives for an ongoing criminal underclass comprising a significant number of black… Read more »

Brilliant effort, ZMan…. I have used the terms “reverse apartheid” to describe the inverted new society our would-be masters are building around us, but your idea of the jizya tax works just as well, perhaps even better. Moreover, your explanation does much to explain the appeal of the “red-green” alliance to leftists and Muslims alike.

1835–Democratic communities have a natural taste for freedom, but for equality their passion is ardent, insatiable, incessant, and invincible: they call for equality in freedom; and if they cannot obtain that, they still call for equality in slavery. What concerns me in our democratic republics is not that mediocrity will become commonplace, but that it may be enforced.

The only thing worse than the Judeo-Marxist highjacking of political ecology in the 1970s is the way the right just handed it over because of muh market boomerism. These conservative and libertarian priors need to be gotten over. The sooner this happens, the better it is going to be. When you are talking about white flight and suburbanization, you are talking about habitat. And when you are talking habitat, you are talking ecology. This should be obvious, but the larger implication tends to be ignored. This has had the effect of ceding the issue to people whose feminine sentimentality would… Read more »

I appreciate how Z-man’s posts and podcasts have built on each other lately. For example, I see the continuity between Friday’s podcast on the ancient Greeks and Z’s assertion here (interesting and new to me) that American whites are being transformed into a helot class, whose work supports the comforts demanded by the country’s otherwise unsuccessful “minorities.” On reflection, there is a logic to this development, considering the direction of our culture in the past 50 years, and given the fact that for “good-whites,” such a helot status represents the fulfillment of an inchoate wish.

So much of our society today applies to the French Revolution. Not in a racial sense. But in human nature, which is like a car with no brakes. Happy mediums only seem to be in place for a short time before they are run over. The pendulum keeps swinging violently in one direction. This pendulum started swinging our direction long before any of us was born. I think once we reach the full madness and anarchy at the end of this long arc of history, it will start swinging back just as violently. The French Revolution started out by going… Read more »

Thanks for ruining this Central Californian’s day! Funny how the Republican got more votes, yet Nancy Pelosi’s nephew still won.

There can only be one solution:
More Immigration!

Science! on the left and right tells us that diversity is our strength, and that only a growing GDP matters.

Therefore, we must increase immigration by any means necessary.
I propose an immediate amnesty of all here, automatic citizenship and benefits for anyone crossing our borders (including airports), and growth targets of 30 million per year or more. Feel the love!

Regarding the minority appetite for reparations and higher education: perhaps these could be satisfied by combining both issues. That is, demand that Harvard, Yale, and Princeton (e.g.) become black-only colleges. These schools have already ratified all the affirmative-action arguments, and could hardly refuse a central role in rectifying the “great injustice of American history” (TM). Nor could our elites dispute the suitability of affecting reparations by turning the most coveted ticket to social advancement exclusively over to blacks. Of course, from the dissident right perspective, this policy would be a just punishment of these educational institutions. It would, frankly, ruin… Read more »

The solution to black crime is the death of black criminals. Death is a solution to a lot of problems. And despite the fact that death is a universal human condition, our modern society abhors death. We cannot let an elderly person with stage IV cancer die. We cannot let an alcoholic with end stage liver disease die. We cannot let a homosexually active man with AIDS die. We cannot let heroin addicts die. We cannot let death-row inmates condemned lawfully by jurors die. We cannot let fly-blown Ethiopean children starve to death. The litany continues.

Very, very true. And there will be much death once all this starts unwinding. Anyone familiar with the famous Enoch Powell, “Rivers of Blood” speech knows that it wasn’t the rantings of a crazy old man in the 60’s, but a reminder of 5000 years of recorded human history and knowledge of human nature. All of this was deliberately stripped out of the education systems decades ago. So it will be that much more surprising to us when it happens. We’ll eventually go from “everyone must live, including tadpoles in the wetlands” to “I must live, therefore you must die.”… Read more »

Have reparations not been paid for the last 50+ years in the form of trillions of dollars transferred from working Americans to non-working Americans (and non-Americans) as welfare payments, food stamps, school lunches. . . ? In the form of free college education to “those in need,” most of whom have no real interest in using college to earn a living? In the form of affirmative action, which guarantees that “majority” students and employees are not allowed to compete with “minority” students and employees? in the form of the general transfer of wealth across all of society to “lift up”… Read more »

How much do you guys think minoroties cost us? Between your Great Societies, Medicaid’s, incarcerations, rebuilding every major city in the burbs etc. between you Israel lobbies, Iraq wars with 6 trillion dollar price tags, your savings and loans, 2008s, etc., how much more wealthy would your run of the mill, pure evil white proles like us be worth? I would say they have cost us a great deal. We have really paid the price!

So sad. I have affection for Portland, OR, although I haven’t lived there for years. It’s infuriating that many of the people in PDX will tell you that one of their most ardent hopes is for a substantial rise in the non-white population.

I hope they will learn, but doubt it. Portlanders are exceptionally delusional.

An awful anti-white white woman I know is fleeing PDX for a whiter mid-sized town. Once she is there she will work to destroy it just like she helped destroy PDX. Last I heard she was helping non-white refugees in PDX.

A useful exercise is to debate black folks online when possible. A good way to cut through the pretense is to ask, “Are whites morally inferior to blacks?” It has a way revealing what Zman is addressing. The proposed relationship is one in which whites are atoning for their sins forever. (Indeed, in the Bible there is no atonement for Original Sin.) There is no pretense of “ending racism” or “coming together.” You’ll never hear anyone say “Our differences are only skin deep” anymore. For decades, that was the approved mantra.
