Baton Rouge; Cleveland
This is a fairly good even if not perfect backgrounder on black nationalist and associated groups. (Not perfect because it tries to drag the Klan into the narrative.) Just as alt-right is an umbrella term that refers to anyone in the generic whose rightist politics are chiefly motivated by some form of anti-egalitarianism and are not comfortable with claiming any of the other major strands of modern rightism, all these black nationalist and kinda-sorta movements and mindsets have their own umbrella grab-bag term: Pro-black, or as I call it, problacktard. It includes lots of things: Outright black nationalists, black secessionists, Moorish Science Temple, black sovereign citizens, conscious brothers and sisters, Hotep, Nation of Islam, Hebrew-Israelite (of the black variety), New Black Panther Party, Universal African People’s Organization, Five Percenters, Boyce Watkins, Professor Griff, Frances Cress Welsing, Tariq Nasheed, Umar Johnson, Sa Neter, and much and many more. Like alt-right, it’s full of people and things that aren’t exactly in tune with each other. Notice that Hotep, Nation of Islam and Hebrew-Israelite are included, and obviously, black Americans can’t be ancient Egyptian polytheists, Muslims and (“the true”) Jews, all at the same time.
On the other side of the coin, there are the antiwhitetards, the trucklers, the pathologically altruistic virtue signalers, the people who need to make it known that they’re white, but they’re better than those icky sticky kind of white people. Out of Cleveland, we see:
In Shaker Heights, a diverse and wealthy suburb of Cleveland, 50-year-old Lisa Vahey said she and other mothers at her daughter’s high school are looking to turn an informal discussion about race, including a Facebook group, into more concrete action.
The group, calling itself Shaker Heights High School CommUnity Builders, will be pushing administrators this school year to better integrate sports and other extracurricular activities that tend to get segregated along racial lines, she said.
Let’s unpack this. Lisa Vahey and all her too prosperous for their own good soccer moms are going to make sure that there aren’t too many whites on the swim team and there aren’t too many blacks on the basketball team. Which should work out just peachy. Sure, they might accomplish what they want, but don’t expect any state championships any time soon. Not with African Rockfish swimming the hundred free.
In the late 1970s, when the Federal judiciary was at the peak of its obsession with forced integration, a Federal judge forced several school districts in the Cleveland area to have race quotas for its high school sports teams. I’m not making this up.
