Excluding Blacks From Juries
By Editorial Board, Nov. 2, 2015 (LINK to editorial)
What the Editorial Board will, or cannot admit is that people - ALL people, of ALL races - tend to be racially prejudiced. Some more than others, of course, but prejudiced, nevertheless.
Race is NOT the "social construct" we are taught it is (except when you try dividing closely related peoples from the same subcontinent into different races, as the Nazis insanely did), but REAL and important. Not in the way that racial supremacists believe it is, but because central to any deep and meaningful sense of both personal and group identity.
Why this determination to deny the reality and importance of race?
It began as an understandable overreaction to the racial supremacism of Jim Crow, Apartheid and, of course, Nazism, before being transformed into an equally extreme ideology of its own, which now serves as an instrument of socio-political intimidation, rewards, punishments, manipulation and control, just as medieval church ideology once did.
It is the STATE itself, which is the real social, i.e. economic and power-political, construct, deceitfully posing as our nation, in order to legitimise itself, its ruling elites and the immense power they wield and abuse, and thus seek to deny and suppress the natural ethnic foundations of genuine nationhood.
This is a difficult, painful and frightening truth to face up to, but it is the only way we can learn how to deal with this existential problem (see BLOG)
