Radical Agenda EP278 – Auction

Seems like everything is up for sale these days. Nothing is sacred, really. The correlation between who spends the most on a campaign, and who wins an election is staggering. The same corporations regulators claim to be keeping in check, often end up in control of those regulatory agencies, shaping regulations to suit their purposes while suppressing competition. The list of things that money can buy could obviously get longer than anyone would be interested in listening to, but you get the idea. Nothing is above the influence of money, and anything that claims to be, is probably trying to do something extra nefarious.

Radical Agenda EP278 – Auction

About the only thing you’re not allowed to buy and sell these days is human beings. Long gone are the good ole days when you just purchased laborers up front. Today, you have to buy the labor from the laborers (who are often too stupid to negotiate price), and there are an ever increasing number of backwards rules making that more difficult by the day.

So it should come as no surprise that some desire a return to the older, simpler model of the labor market. If that is our purpose, then what better place to start than at a historically black university?

Well that’s just what an unnamed white professor at Howard University attempted to do, sorta. The professor was reportedly teaching a lesson on Frederick Douglass’ slave narrative, and during the course of it he asked one of two black men in the class to step forward and become the prize of a mock slave auction. He reportedly asked the black student to stand up because he looked “healthy” and “like the type of slave buyers would look for.” Even more shocking was the student said he was asked to “turn around so we can see your buttocks” so the class could get a better sense of how much he was worth. That is when he said the class spoke up in disgust and he sat down.

The professor evaluated the young bull’s auction value at $400.

Now, I can understand the sensitivity involved in these matters. For a long time, human beings have tried to accept blacks as part of the team, and no matter how many times they prove this impossible, everyone just keeps on trying. We can dance around the emotional toll of the whole thing all we want, but the dollars are what make sense. Purchasing a black man for $400 and owning him until you dispose of him is obviously a far better investment than subsidizing their breeding in housing projects for the benefit of the Democrat party. Entirely too many of these wannabe people are consuming more than $400 in food stamps each month, not including housing subsidies, free cash, and other government goodies. We went from a time when you could purchase one outright for $400, and he did whatever you told him to do until he was dead, to a time when we throw multiple times this much at them on a monthly basis and they do nothing but commit crimes and demand more freebies.

No wonder it made the black student uncomfortable. Once you start trying to balance the books, the answer to our economic problems becomes rather obvious. Problems always hate being identified because they know it is only a matter of time before they are eliminated.

    0 comments, Chris? So you simply deleted mine, and punked the link?

    • Cantwell’s commenting system has been a link free zone for a rather long (internet) time. This is documented by going to the header at the top of the page, clicking About then clicking on FAQ. (I’d include a link to that but you can’t link even to his web site from within his comment system.)

      “Q. What is the comment policy?

      1. No links will be posted in comments under any circumstances. If you put a hyperlink in a comment, the comment system will automatically hold your comment for moderation, and I will never approve it. Even links to other pages of this blog will probably never be seen, because I just don’t have the time or the inclination to go and read through every self promotional piece of shit that get’s posted to the comments here. Make your point in some other way, hyperlinks are not allowed.”

        I can attest to this. I one time forgot and included a link in a rather long post.

    Here – let me put it back in for ya, minus the “offending” link to, you know, back my claims up with researched scientific logic and FACTS:

    “Bwahahaha! Good one, Chris!

    But these days, the ‘reparations’ payments are more like extortion:
    “We pay you to have lots of kids so you won’t burn our cities down!”

    Of course, this choice to perpetually kick the can down the road really only makes the problems worse, increasing the number of victimology-spewing entitled extortionists for our children and grandchildren to have to pay for!

    However, there might be a fairly inexpensive and permanent solution (no, not the “final” one)!

    There is an obvious problem of black laziness, impulsiveness, and promiscuity.

    Admitting a problem exists is the first step in solving that problem!

    Since melanin is not only a skin dye but also a neuro-transmitter, it will probably be easy to develop a simple beta-blocker to free blacks from their history of being unable to create stable societies or invent stuff!

    Now, I know you don’t like people leaving links on your site, but this one is to a neutral scientific study (and only one of many confirming the same findings) so it’s not to a rival’s site, depriving you of income!

    (Link was here, now removed so you can see my post uncensored)!

    If we can leave aside the indulgence in giving offense pointlessly, the lesson here is that getting students to place themselves in relation to the history of real oppression must be prevented at all costs by those who trade in manufactured grievances. Of course, this ‘mockery’ comes nowhere close to illustrating the vast gap between what Fredrick Douglass suffered and anything that is even imagined by those modern Marxists confidently asserting their indisputable right to endless entitlements…whatever race they may ‘identify’ as.

    Breaking through that pathological limitation of imaginative sympathy for the genuinely greater hardships of a previous generation is, perhaps, not worth attempting for anyone to whom it does not come entirely naturally. Certainly such a tame and insipid exercise as praising the physique of a student who probably has no other particular merits worthy of mention, and asking him to flaunt his well-developed buttocks for the admiration of his peers, would seem to trivialize rather than emphasize the historical reality of slavery.

    People either have the inclination to look at life from other perspectives than their own or they don’t. If someone hasn’t developed that capacity voluntarily early in life, there simply is no point trying to teach it in college. So to that professor I say, “what did you expect?”

    To the degree that the offense of suggesting bringing slavery back is pointed, I have to ask the same question, if with a slightly different tense. What are you expecting?

    For myself, I go further, to say that slavery was a mistake in the first place, hoping to profit from the importation of people you deem fundamentally incapable of assimilation into your civilization is a fool’s game no matter how much ‘control’ you believe you have over them.
