Strangers in a Strange Land

Kathy Shaidle:
It’s a testament to the stifling conformity of the black community that pop subcultures such as whites (and certain nonwhites) conceive of them do not exist. 
Think about it: except for Rastas, there are no African-American equivalents to the beatniks and goths, mods and rockers, skins and Teds, punks and new romantics, hippies and hipsters or (God help us) Juggalos. 
Not only that, but very few blacks dare (or care) to venture into these mostly white subcultures. When they do—as punk pioneer of Jamaican descent Don Letts will frankly tell you—they are generally embraced by their new white friends and shunned by their old black ones. To cite the subculture I’m most familiar with, the total number of well-known black punks fits comfortably into, well, one 66-minute film. (Directed by a half-white guy.)
The fundamental reality of the situation is that, for all their dysfunction and faults, black people understand one thing quite well:  blacks and whites are different.  Blacks are observably more racist than whites, which is a shorthanded way of saying that blacks don't really believe in inequality, except insofar as it is a magical word that can be used to get more government handouts.

More to the point, blacks know that blacks and whites are different, and they know that equality doesn't really exist.  What matters are ethnic ties, and skin color is a damned good marker of that (though not exactly perfect).  Blacks, then, recognize their status as being minority outsiders and take the logical step of engaging in a repulsive cultural conformity that achieves two goals.  First, it keeps fellow blacks in lockstep because, as Taleeb Starkes demonstrates in The Un-civil War, NIGGER culture is extremely dysfucntional, which makes the culture a kind of suicide pact.

Second, it keeps white people at bay.  White people never really venture into the ghetto because it is dangerous.  Detroit's not much of a vacation destination for upper-class white folks for a reason.

Thus, black dysfunction can be viewed as a cultural coping mechanism that ensures members of the tribe are stuck with the tribe and those who are not of the tribe want nothing to do with it.  Solving this problem is pretty simple, and it's still the same as when Abraham Lincoln proposed it back in 1862:  ship the black people out of America.  Their dysfunction isn't doing anyone any good and it's clear that they either cannot or will not assimilate into White European society.  As such, there is no point in keeping them around as distrusted minorities.
