With MLK Day behind us, Black History Month upon us, and Black Panther about to change the course of human history forever, millions of white people are already contending with the onslaught of blacks saying that Western Civilization is only possible because of black inventors and such. It will not matter this year—just as it did not last year or the year before or the year before—that their canned list of unique and innovative inventions is entirely false. We will hear about how the Ancient Egyptians were black and that nomadic Africans were charting the heavens with rock formations 2,000 years before Stonehenge. As Orwell once famously wrote, “Who controls the past controls the future,” and this highlights that the annual kabuki dance where history is revised, reimagined, and rewritten to favor black people is no trivial thing.
The above image almost perfectly encapsulates the future that currently faces the United States and the West. It is a future of myths and fairy tales, not truth and reality, of mutable oral histories, not immutable written records. It is a future where “safe spaces” act as fortifications for attackers while their victims are left exposed, where the fragile claim strength and accuse the strong of fragility, where oppressors claim to be oppressed and criminals claim to be the victims. Where heroes are needed yet none can be found, they will be fabricated out of whole cloth and simply accepted as having always been. Liars and frauds will be lauded as kings while harlots are met with cries of “Yas, queen!” Look upon the figures above and witness people unworthy of praise who nonetheless will be seen as the mythological nobility who ushered in a new age.
On the more ridiculous end, we can see examples of “pop culture heroes,” those created almost entirely by social media. The most recent is Liam Mango, a child model now internationally famous after he appeared in an H&M advertisement wearing a hoodie that read, “Coolest Monkey in the Jungle.” Cries of racism were immediate, and at least one case of rioting occurred. Then there is Colin Kaepernick with his massive contribution to black liberation by taking a knee during the National Anthem to protest police brutality. For his efforts, he was named the winner of the 2017 Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award and was GQ‘s Citizen of the Year, and no one seemed to care that he was protesting something that isn’t actually true. It does not matter that Mango is a paid child model or that Kaepernick is protesting a problem that does not exist. All that matters is that they can be transformed into the “Coolest King in the World” and “Colin X,” heroes standing against “The Man,” around which others can rally and fight against “The System.”
And therein is the reality of what is taking place. This is a conflict between the “past” and the “future,” between the whites who built Western Civilization and the non-whites who believe they are owed the entirety thereof. One need only look at articles celebrating estimates that the average American by 2050 will be some sort of multiracial mongrel, the byproduct of “one giant amalgamated mega-race.” It is made plain that they envision a future for the West full of “Blackanese” and “Korgentinians” but no whites. This racial and cultural Cold War is an obvious problem. For example, why should England become Pakistan Two: Islamic Boogaloo? It is natural to want to see one’s own people, faith, culture, and nation preserved, so how have we found ourselves moving towards a future without the English, or the Irish, or the French, or Germans, or Italians? Simply put, whites are taught to be apathetic about their own survival while non-whites are taught that everything whites have was stolen from them and thus rightfully belongs to them.
This is facilitated by the way in which Africans contend with history and the way in which the Left wants to elevate “indigenous” methods at the expense of Western standards. This often manifests itself in liberal academics decrying “Eurocentrism,” as though Europe should not be the focus of Western history, and instead promoting non-white alternatives such as Afrocentrism, generally saying that the “lived experiences” of non-whites are just as valid as written records, and so on. This is how academia finds itself where professors argue that “traditional science” is racist and should be replaced with an entirely political methodology involving an “anti-science, anti-racist, feminist approach.” In other words, feelings matter more than facts, and we can see how this approach ties into the promotion of “indigenous” ways of viewing the world. For example, in Sub-Saharan Africa, prior to the arrival of Europeans or Arabs, written language was virtually unheard of so that “historical sources are predominantly oral traditions” so that “oral tradition and other oral sources of history… constitute the bulk of the sources [for the] history of Africa.”
The obvious problem with “anti-science” approaches to science and “anti-history” approaches to history is that they remove any objective standard by which reality can be defined. If science does not have to be proved according to scientific standards, can a person not simply theorize whatever they wish? This is demonstrated by the fact that geneticists can identify a person’s race with near 100% accuracy, that said results match a person’s self-identified race virtually 100% of the time, and that no two people from different racial groups can be more similar than two people from the same group when sufficient markers are tested; yet liberals still deny that race even exists. Reality is irrelevant. When applied to history, a man who never controlled more than 11,500 square miles—roughly the size of Belgium—can be declared “the black Napoleon” without a hint of irony. Things such as scale are irrelevant when judging non-white historical figures.
Consider Oprah Winfrey, the future Queen of Black America with polls already anointing her for 2020 just as they did for Hillary Clinton in 2016. She is the wealthiest female entertainer in the United States after a career predominantly supported by white women. That latter fact did not stop her, however, from famously saying that “older people… just have to die” for racism to end, and we can see from demographic data that by “older people” she meant “white people.” She has also said that whites do not need to harbor ill will towards blacks to be “racist,” has given a platform to Muslims trying to muddy the waters over Islam’s war on the West, &c. Similarly, Oprah’s good friend, Barack Hussein Obama, the first Chiraqi to become President of the United States, can thank white people for his career yet he rarely misses an opportunity to cry “racism” as a means of promoting the interests of non-whites over whites. Beyond attacking the whites who put him into office, Obama also increased the national debt by $9.3 trillion, was the only POTUS in history to not have at least one year of 3% GDP growth, saw the workforce participation rate fall to a 40-year low, &c. For his efforts, leftists have already declared him to be “one of the greatest presidents of all time.”
While the people above are surely examples of people receiving undue praise and accolades, they are by no means the first faux heroes produced by this sort of mythmaking, which is demonstrated by the two figures in the middle of the picture. Malcolm Little, alias Malcolm X, has been called “the greatest truth-teller about white supremacy in the 20th century” and “the greatest prophetic voice against the American Empire.” Ossie Davis eulogized him, saying, “Malcolm was our manhood, our living, black manhood! This was his meaning to his people. And, in honoring him, we honor the best in ourselves.” In 1967. two years after Malcolm’s death, Amiri Baraka wrote a poem commemorating his life and death:
For Malcolm’s eyes, when they broke the face of some dumb white man, For Malcolm’s hands raised to bless us all black and strong in his image of ourselves… For Great Malcolm a prince of the earth, let nothing in us rest until we avenge ourselves for his death, stupid animals that killed him, let us never breathe a pure breath if we fail, and white men call us faggots till the end of the earth.”
But who was this great truth-teller and prophet, the living embodiment of black manhood, who warranted vengeance lest black men forever be called faggots? As Malcolm X, he was a member of the Nation of Islam and a disciple of Elijah Muhammad, of whom he once said, “My worship of [Elihah Muhammad] was so awesome that he was the first man whom I had ever feared—not fear such as of a man with a gun, but the fear such as one has of the power of the sun.” This was the same Elijah Muhammad that taught that a black mothership is in orbit around the Earth and that a black man created the Moon approximately 66 trillion years ago by blowing a large section of the Earth into orbit with dynamite. The relationship between the two men had first started in 1949 while Malcolm Little was sitting in prison after being convicted of robbery in 1946. Far from what people think of when they hear “Malcolm X,” Malcolm Little was a street hustler who was known to “service queers” for money in at least the year or two prior to his arrest, albeit his first homosexual experience had been while still in grade school when he ordered another boy to “service” him after Malcolm had stumbled upon him masturbating. This is the man remembered as a “great truth-teller” and the “living, black manhood”… a hustler who enjoyed encounters with a transvestite named Willie Mae before he became a peddler of lies and conspiracy theories for the Nation of Islam.
Despite having only ever met once in 1964 with the exchange lasting only a minute, Martin Luther King Jr. had much in common with Malcolm X. Both men had been born the sons of Baptist ministers, Malcolm to Rev. Earl Little and Martin to Rev. Martin Luther King Sr., respectively. Both men would become famous under names other than those they had at birth, Malcolm Little becoming known as “Malcolm X” and Michael King Jr. being known to history as “MLK” after his father, Michael King Sr., started using “Martin Luther” for himself and his son. Both men were also sexual deviants, Malcolm Little having many gay experiences while MLK was fond of drunken orgies with prostitutes, having once held one at a workshop he put together in Florida to train black ministers. But, most importantly, both men share an iconic status that is almost entirely untethered from who they actually were. Malcolm may have peddled black nationalism while Martin marched, but would anyone have listened to them had the truth of their lives been known?
This question necessarily goes well beyond particular heroes and their flaws, and this is due to the fact that they are but one piece of the ever growing mythology that relies upon heroes but largely only insofar as they facilitate the wholesale theft and/or destruction of European heritage and culture. Martin and Malcolm, for example, are important not so much for what they did but what they represent: namely, black people standing up against “overwhelming odds” to fight against “White America,” instilling in black people a militancy and pride that is in opposition to white people. Indeed, despite how famous and important these two men seemingly are to black people, it is safely assumed that basic facts about the lives of Martin and Malcolm are not known to the average black person. The details are irrelevant so long as the intended feeling is evoked by the nebulous narrative. For example, consider that Rosa Parks was not a tired woman on a bus in 1955. She was instead a communist agitator and secretary for the local NAACP, and the “event” was staged with photographs staged even later to sell the idea that innocent black people were being victimized.
We can even look back to the story of Harriet Tubman, who Wikipedia tells us was an “abolitionist, humanitarian, and an armed scout and spy for the United States Army during the American Civil War… The first woman to lead an armed expedition in the war, she guided the raid at Combahee Ferry, which liberated more than 700 slaves.” That sounds quite amazing, and neoconservatives gleefully cheered the prospect of her appearing on currency because she was “a gun-toting Republican.” The problem, however, is that this is largely all a myth. For example, the mythmakers claim she “led hundreds of slaves to freedom along the Underground Railroad,” but Tubman herself said she only rescued 50 or 60 people of which most were “friends and family.” It is also worth noting that her valiant “trips to the South” only involved her going from Pennsylvania to Maryland. Similarly, the “armed expedition” she led was actually led by white officers with Tubman doing nothing more than facilitating payments to slaves for information and recruiting slaves to serve in the Union Army, albeit, in admitting even that, liberals try to credit her for planning the raid. Even her work as a “spy” only involved her walking freely around areas in the South where she drew no notice because it was not an uncommon sight. Virtually everything about Tubman has been exaggerated.
For the abolitionists at the time, there was an obvious benefit to promoting the basic myth of a former slave helping to free others. It gave them a heroic tale that could be spun into showing how desperate slaves were to be free. In time, the myth grew into her being a gun-toting former slave who stormed the South nearly two dozen times to liberate hundreds of slaves, led Union forces in a naval expedition, and would become the black, female James Bond of the Civil War. Tubman became an icon that simultaneously reminds black people that their ancestors were slaves and tells them that they can overcome anything despite the odds. In other words, these sorts of myths instill in them a sense of victimhood but also pride, providing them with an enemy that they can blame for every ill in their lives. If it is ever pointed out that Africans in America have a mean IQ of 85, that they disproportionately commit crime, that they disproportionately contract sexually transmitted diseases, that nearly 3 in 4 black children is born out of wedlock, or other such inconvenient facts, all of the above can be easily dismissed as being the fault of white racists “keeping them down.”
We can see the same balance between victimhood and pride in stories about black people being able to fly until the white man somehow stole the ability from them, and, yes, it is the same sort of Africanized mythmaking at work with the new Marvel movie, Black Panther, or at least how Africans in America are treating it. For example, some are claiming that the fictional nation of “Wakanda” was once real, linking the new myth to the old myths about the medieval kingdom of Mali. According to the old myth, Mali was an empire including “400 cities” with a university that was “the most gifted learning center in the world.” In reality, virtually nothing remains of the small number of “cities” recognized within the “real Wakanda.” For example, it is claimed that the capital, Niani, was home to at least 100,000 people in the 14th century, but that is based on Joannes Leo Africanus estimating that it was home to “6,000 hearths,” which is turned into a much larger number by assuming 10+ people living in every household. Today, Niani is nothing more than a village, and there are no grand ruins speaking to it once being a rival of London or Paris.
This estimate must be severely questioned, however, based on Djenné, another “city” that actually provides a glimpse into what Mali would have looked like in the Middle Ages. We are told that the city was home to up to 80,000 people at the height of the empire, but, today, it is home to as few as 9,000 people, depending on the season, who live in some 2,300 traditional mud houses, albeit some estimates may range as high as 15,000 people at times. Importantly, this is with European nations working to preserve and improve the city for the Africans. For example, Canadian development aid in 1982 provided a drinking water supply plant, but that caused issues because the city lacked the means to contend with waste water. Indeed, most homes have a single “toilet” on the roof that dumps waste directly onto the street. In recent years, the German government funded drainage ditches outside most of the homes, but tourists still report puddles of sewage that must be avoided. The Dutch government funded efforts to restore some 100 homes that had fallen into disrepair, at times just to see the locals immediately destroy their work. Even the mosque, for which Djenné is famous, was rebuilt by the French in 1907 after it was allowed to collapse.
This is the “real Wakanda,” a myth of a grand empire hidden away in Sub-Saharan Africa with hundreds of cities full of African warriors and scholars that ultimately gives way to the reality of mud houses with human waste flowing between them. Indeed, tales are told every February of Mali’s great center of learning, Timbuktu, which we are told was the world’s first and greatest university. While the city may have fascinated European imaginations—its name still conjuring images of something distant and mysterious—what they eventually found was the reality “of a rather decayed, largely mud-built, modest-sized town.” The so-called “great university” was nothing more than three mud-built mosques and their associated madrasas.
Despite this reality, we can be sure that the myths will persist. As South African actor John Kani says of Black Panther, “This movie will prove to the colonialists that if they had not interfered with Africa, we’d be so far advanced, may make them believe we built those pyramids in Egypt. No alien did them.” It does not matter that Wakanda does not and never has existed, that Ancient Egyptians were not black, or that blacks did not build the pyramids. Africans are simultaneously the victims because whites kept them from reaching their potential, but they are also proud of what they supposedly accomplished in the past anyway and will supposedly accomplish in the future. If they cannot think of an accomplishment, it does not matter because they are fairly certain someone else’s accomplishments were really theirs. Africans are somehow both perpetual victims and unbeaten heroes, and the myths can be adapted on the fly for the African to be whatever is most beneficial in the moment, which can literally vary from one second to the next.
In a non-white future where African mythmaking is universally accepted as history, European history will be rewritten to be African history, Japanese samurai will be reimagined as African samurai, American Indians will be recast as Afro-Aboriginals, the Punic Wars were fought between Roman Africans and Carthaginian Africans, and on, and on, and on. In short, not only do whites face demographic replacement, but they will have to watch as their heritage is stolen from them. As we have seen, myths are already appearing in the education system, from Malcolm and Martin to Tubman and Parks, and it will only get worse as political power shifts further. White liberals may pander on such things, but they do not actually believe these modern African myths. The Africans themselves, however, do believe them, and their myths will grow to devour the entire world even as civilization rots and decays, remnants of something no one will be able to explain. Perhaps they will tell myths of giants with pale skin who had come before and built the towering cities and touched the Moon, or, more likely, they will continue to spin tales of their greatness as the world burns.
