V.S. Naipaul on Black American Literature

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

Steve Sailer reader, Alan from Perth W.A., writes:

As V.S. Naipaul wrote more than 50 years ago – and surely the passage of time has only verified the truth of his observation (The Middle Passage, 1962).

“The American Negro’s subject is his own blackness. This cannot be the basis of any serious literature, and it has happened again and again that once the American Negro has made his statement, his profitable protest, he has nothing to say.”

This observation of course transcends black American “literature,” and black Americans, in general, which is why the overwhelming majority of blacks are ineducable. And most of those who are educable, are untrustworthy, since they now tend to profit by using the dunces as an army of extortion and permanent revolution.
