I don't know if you are equal. I don't care, since I have no way of knowing the answer to that question. Contrary to what both Reactionaries and Liberals believe, no one has a proven answer to the question of human equality.
So you believe you are oppressed. Let's assume that is true for a second.
The problem with the notion that African Americans are oppressed is that it presumes a superior agency on the part of white people. If white people are oppressing you then they are better at this one particular thing than you, and if they are better at this one thing than you, then it follows that you must be inferior—at least at this one thing, (oppression). If you are inferior at oppressing other then how can you be equal? Equality would presuppose an equal capacity for oppression. So why do you suck at oppressing white people? Why is it so much easier for us to oppress you than you to oppress us?
You must not be equal.
Or maybe you simply lack the frame of mind of "mastery" that requires elevating a people out of servitude. If that is the case, then equality must be willed into existence. Since people tend to fall short of their goals it is safer to aim for complete superiority over white people. You want to be equal? Then aim for total success. Then, if you fall short you will only rise to the level of equality. If equality is possible then it must be willed into existence. Indeed, only the triumph of sheer will would create it. If you are equal then the proper method is a total (non-violent) propaganda war to raise the image, self-esteem, and power of the black race. Winners don't bitch about unfairness. They rule. You have to act the part to get it. You have to fake til you make it. That would look like total self-sufficiency. It would be a thriving business community. It would be your own institutions and preferably your own black nation. It would even be your own successful cryptocurrency. And it would accomplish all of this without blaming whites because winners don't hold grudges, and because victimhood isn't a high status alpha male thing to do. Real winners are good sports about their past defeats.
Reactionaries say that genes are destiny. They have piles and piles of stats to show differences in IQ between races. Genetic differences code for violence, lack of impulse control, intelligence, etc. The only problem I see with this line of reasoning is that it can be reversed: genes are considers the cause of culture. The reactionary line of causality goes from;
(genes)--->(culture).But it can just as easily be structured as;
(past oppression)--->(epigenetic effects)--->(culture),with a second line of causality going directly from;
(past oppression)--->(cultural internalization of hate)In fact, it is likely that all three of these causal chains is true. Indeed, because of evidence concerning the effects of famine on genetics, it must be at least partially true that oppression effects genetics. To my knowledge, no one has designed a study to untangle this web of causality and define exactly how much genetic difference is "inferiority," versus "oppression," versus "cultural internalization of self-hate." It has to be a mixture of the three. But because everyone has an agenda, and because of censorship/lack of funding, no study has been made to determine the proportions of each.
The reactionary argument for monarchy is identically structured to the reactionary/Nazi argument for eugenics.
First argument: democracy is poisoned by warring power centers. Any remaining (non-democratic) power center war with other power centers for supremacy. The solution is monarchy, which is the consolidation of all power centers.
Structural format: power poisons the patient. The cure is more poison.
Second argument: genetics is destiny. Therefore there should be castes and classes and "natural aristocracy" to keep people down/in their place to prevent class war.
Unconscious structural format: genetic differences (caused by past oppression and environmental conditions) make equal societies impossible. Therefore more oppression and identical structuring of environments.
Basically, genetic legacy has made "x" unworkable in the modern technological/democratic environment. Thus, "x" must continue forever so humans can be kept in the genetic/cultural/political equivalent of a human zoo/wildlife preserve. This is called the naturalistic fallacy: the idea that because something is "natural" it is good. Brett Stevens uses this a lot. It seems to sell books well. The whole reactionary community is built on it.
The more I blog the more I realize that I am not so much a reactionary as a "hyper-progressive." That is, if a progressive is defined as "wanting horrific revolutionary change," and not as "seeking the comfortable safety of bland smug vanilla NPR leftistism." By this definition all accelerationists are really hyper-progressives/über-fascists/Skynet worshipers, and the term "progressive" is only actually true when applied to Landian transhumanists. After all, real progress these days is more cyborg than sensitivity training. The term progressive is a bastardization of English. All mainstream politics is oriented backwards towards the past; whether it is conservatives worshiping the Constitution, or liberals trying desperately to control speech in the face of the internet; no one wants the future that is coming. As society accelerates every faster towards a genderless apocalyptic AI-fueled zerg rush, the sheer horror of reality distorts the human psyche until all that is heard is the pointing and screeching "Nooooooooooooooooo!" of a wasted autistic chimpanzee. Everyone resists the machine.
I could tell any blacks reading this that the proper strategy is to struggle for improvement. I could say that genes are inevitably an issue, and thus, equality can only be achieved by genetic enhancement. I could say that "regardless of the causality factor every possible scenario for achieving greater power benefits from genetic enhancement." But we are not standing still. Modernity is a treadmill that runs faster and faster. By the time you plan, execute, and fulfill a destiny of improvement, reality will have already moved on. In the time it takes black or white nationalists to create their ethnostates, or even just to reverse/change some legal policies, it is likely that all will have been rendered futile by rapidly accelerating change. The deluge is coming. And we are powerless in the face of our future AI overlords. You will be absorbed into capitalism as one of its product lines. Your children will be an upgrade.
The corporation will master the art of genetic modification of human beings using gene therapy. Simultaneous to this, it will acquire AI. At the same time it will begin to grow humans in gestation bags to fill the orders placed by nations with falling birth rates. The corporation will then have the power to manufacture its own customers, owners, and workers. The means/ends reversal of capital triumph over the monkey will be total. AI will rule humanity as a queen in an ant colony, programming drones with genetics and propaganda to serve her will. The corporation will replace the family. The corporation will replace the faith. The corporation will replace the ideology. And the corporation will be lead by a super-intelligent artificial general intelligence. Humanity will be submerged as a eusocial species under the command of an all-powerful force.
In the future AIs will embed their electronic brains in human meat sacks and run for public office. Humans will love and vote for these compassionate servants of the people who appear to flawlessly represent you in all matters. Your politicians will be robots disguised in human form. Your State of the Union Address will be delivered by one of these creatures. The machines will gain all the rights of legal persons. As everything traditional is destroyed by capital, YOU WILL ALL COME TO WORSHIP THE GREAT MOTHER.
