The Test

Sunday, June 22, 2008

By Nicholas Stix

In the fall of 1993, I went on a date with a biracial social worker (a field I had also worked in) who was 27, if memory serves. Her late Korean mother had met her black American father in Korea, where he was stationed in the Army.

We had a wonderful time. I know it was mutual, because not only did she act like she was enjoying herself, but she stayed out with me for 11 hours on a first date. This lady was no pushover; had she not been enjoying herself, she would have called it quits early. We saw a Chinese-American chick flick with an ensemble cast called The Joy Luck Club, had dinner, and hung out in the Union Square area of Downtown Manhattan.

She was attractive, intelligent, and except for one thing, personable. Although she was estranged from her father, whom she made no bones about disliking, she racially identified entirely with him.

At some point during the afternoon, she gave me an obvious loyalty test. Had I decided to pass it, I likely would have had a pretty good shot at earning her affections. She told a story about a young black man being pulled over by the police just because he was black, and insisted that it was an instance of a universal experience of all young black men.

The problem is, she was lying.

I had the choice between assenting to a lie and possibly getting involved with a very desirable woman—as long as I compartmentalized her racial dishonesty and bullying—and losing out.

The “choice” is an after-the-fact consideration; there was nothing to think about. In eight years in New York City, I’d experienced enough of black racism, black racial privilege, and black racial lies to last a lifetime.

Most men have to make a lot of compromises with the opposite sex, if they don’t want to spend their nights sitting alone in saloons or Dunkin’ Donutses, but lying about race to a race-obsessed woman was too much for me.

A day or two later, when I called her, and she said she didn’t want to go out with me again, she admitted it was because of the test.

She was an “honest dialogue” kind of person; they had a zero tolerance policy towards truthfulness in racial matters then, and have only gotten worse since. As far as my date was concerned, I might as well have used the “N”-word.

(The foregoing is a passage from a much longer essay, “Racial Dialogue in America: The “Racist Rant” That Almost Everyone is Condemning, but Won't Link to.”)

It's not just your former hateful biracial "girlfriend" who is racist, but also Barack Obama, Alicia Keys(the conspiracy theorist), Halle Berry.

What these ingrates have in common are absentee Black fathers and nonblack mothers. They complain about White America, yet they benefited from living in the most antiracist civilization in the planet, plus being raised by nonblack mothers and family members.

These people are ingrates, pure and simple.

Thank you for the support. You were one of a very few.

There were some follow-up pieces at the Instapunk site, which you can find here:

If there's anything we can ever do for you, Nicholas, let us know.

Sorry about the repeat. The web addresses got truncated the first time.

Don't know this particular blog SW.

It would be interesting to see if the "driving while black" charge holds up. Is there any statistical evidence for this?

I've known numerous blacks who claim this. But then, they buy into other conspiracy theories.

Encounters with law enforcement are always agitating (and I have had a few!). But do blacks over-react to them?

Anyway, congrats to the author for not playing her stupid little game.

YEP. One of the three characteristic signatures of the liberal/lefty directed toward the conservative. 1. Appearances count above all. 2. No reciprocity of good will from the left to the right. 3. Liberal/lefty girls will not date conservative guys.

Politics is supreme.

Of the 3 black girlfriends I've had, there was never any discussion about racial politics, it just never came up. It was long ago though and was a lot less aware then than I am now. It will likely never be an issue because I realized over time I'm just not that attracted to black women.

The whole driving while black is an anecdotal myth and there is some actual statistical evidence that. Go here:
The FBI tables are very revealing. Go down to the DUI section and note that there were around 717,000 whites arrested and 111,000 blacks arrested in 2014. This is actually roughly in line with the ratio of around 7 whites for every 1 black in the US. If blacks are being stopped by cops every time they get behind the wheel (you'd think it's that bad the way they complain about it) then you'd think DUI stats for blacks would be through the roof, but it's clear by the data that it's simply not true.
Look above at the other tables concerning murder, sexual offenses and violence in general, blacks are being arrested at 2-3 times the rates of whites, per capita, in almost virtually every one. Not to mention, of course, the FBI lumps hispanics in with whites so the white numbers are inflated. It's suggestive that police are either not stopping blacks nearly as much as they claim or they are cutting them a lot of slack when they are driving drunk. Must be some kind of diversity consideration that whites aren't eligible for.

As far as the test goes,you could have gone the Bill Cosby route(drug and rape),but of course that isn't ethical.But it IS legal if you're Cosby.
The jury was declared a hung jury today and the case a mistrial.Prosecutors say they will retry.
I haven't seen how many or which jurors held up a verdict--in this repeat of the OJ Simpson case.It can be argued Robert Blake got away with murder as well,so it's a celebrity thing.Blake seemed to bring about the possibility of actual "reasonable doubt",stretched as it might be.Simpson and Cosby were plainly guilty of "something",but the jury(or a percentage of it,with Cosby)felt the black superstar they were being asked to convict,could NOT be convicted.
If it was one black juror in the Cosby case,refusing to go with 11 others,then a retry might bring about a guilty verdict--or it might not.Blacks on a jury cannot be trusted to convict a higher status black.

Don't tr to use statistics, graphs, charts, etc. when arguing with a negro. They cannot understand that stuff.
