Note: Technical issues scuttled the podcast this week. Apparently, the Yeti USB microphone does not last forever. Too many hours of fiddling with it and I finally threw in the towel and ordered a new one. I’ll be back in business next week.
In the English speaking world, it has become common to “blackwash” movies and television shows. This is the process of removing white characters and replacing them with non-white characters. The stated claim is that popular entertainment needs to reflect the changing nature of the audience. Of course, the reason the audience is changing is that the same people blackwashing films and television shows are ethnically cleansing white societies with mass immigration.
For a long time now, Hollywood has been taking great care to make the good characters black and the bad ones white. For a short while, the bad guys could be Arab terrorists, but now bad guys are white again. If they need to be foreign baddies, then they are neo-Nazis from eastern Europe or Russian gangsters. Of course, the smartest characters are black or female. If we’re lucky, the brainiac is a black lesbian. Every computer hacker is now non-white or female.
On occasion the blackwashing gets ridiculous. Some figure from white history is played by a black actor. A black guy in a show about medieval Europe could be amusing, but that’s not how it is done. Instead, we get black cowboys saving a white town or a black playing King Lear. It will not be long before we have historical dramas in which well-known figures from white history are played by black actors as black people. Imagine Ben Franklin played by Morgan Freeman.
The most recent absurdity in this process is the TV series Fargo. The series kicked off six years ago as an extension of the movie with the same name. As the name suggests, the show is primarily set in North Dakota, but it has scenes and plots that range out into the rest of the region. The first season was primarily set in Bemidji Minnesota. In fact, only the second season is located in North Dakota. The idea is to root the story lines in the sorts of people who settled that part of America.
Of course, that part of America, up until fairly recent, was all white people, with a population of Native Americans. Until the people fond of blackwashing started dumping Africans into Minneapolis, for example, Minnesota was known for being one of the whitest places in the country. It was the Scandinavia of North America. In fact, North Dakota was almost all Scandinavian people. It was settled by Norwegians and Icelanders, who migrated out of Canada, along with some Germans.
That’s what made the first season enjoyable. It was a good plot with good characters set in a place that is a bit quirky. Of course, it had no black characters, because there are no black Norwegians. This being the high point of the colored revolution, the fourth season of the show is now entirely black. Since setting a black crime story in North Dakota is ridiculous, even for the people behind the blackwashing, they located the story in 1950 Kansas City, Missouri.
The point of blackwashing is to erase white history and culture. The world condemns China, for example, when they do this to Tibet or now the Uighurs, but when it is done to white people the great and good celebrate. As Joe Sobran pointed out many years ago, the motivation here is envy. The very existence of white people is a daily reminder of the failure of all others to accomplish much of anything, despite being blessed with the best the earth has to offer.
We will soon reach the point where no characters in movies or television are white, unless they are criminals. The ad makers are far down that path. The ads that are about a product or service, which is rare these days, always have a racial makeup that represents the fantasy of the ad maker, rather than reality. The ads about how much the company cares about us, most ads now, are multicultural orgies of diversity that exist nowhere on earth.
Popular entertainment is a leading edge. It tells us what is in store for us as soon as the great and good think the time is right. The bellowing about white supremacy after the debate show is another clue. It was not enough for Trump to dismiss bigotry or racism during and after the show, They demanded he denounce white people. That’s because the mere existence of white people is a reminder of the great achievements of white people relative to the other races. Therefore, whitey has to go.
The blackwashing has been normalized in entertainment and sports. It will next move into other aspects of life. Whether or not that can be normalized is an open question, as someone has to keep the plates spinning. More important, will white people keep letting themselves be pushed off the stage of life? The pessimist says yes, whites would rather be dead than rude. The optimists say that eventually, whites wake up and take back their lands from the blackwashers.
Either way, the reality of this age is we have moved beyond the quest for diversity into the beginnings of the vengeance phase. The daily attacks on whites going about their business and the evolution of Jim Snow laws are parts of it. The blackwashing is another part of it. Ethnic cleansing is not just about removing the people, but also about removing their culture. It takes a special hatred to erase a people from the book of life and that is the point of the blackwashing.
