Wealth Inequality Has Widened Along Racial, Ethnic Lines Since End of Great Recession

Rakesh Kochhar and Richard Fry, Pew Research, December 12, 2014

The Great Recession, fueled by the crises in the housing and financial markets, was universally hard on the net worth of American families. But even as the economic recovery has begun to mend asset prices, not all households have benefited alike, and wealth inequality has widened along racial and ethnic lines.

The wealth of white households was 13 times the median wealth of black households in 2013, compared with eight times the wealth in 2010, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of data from the Federal Reserve’s Survey of Consumer Finances. Likewise, the wealth of white households is now more than 10 times the wealth of Hispanic households, compared with nine times the wealth in 2010.

The current gap between blacks and whites has reached its highest point since 1989, when whites had 17 times the wealth of black households. The current white-to-Hispanic wealth ratio has reached a level not seen since 2001. (Asians and other racial groups are not separately identified in the public-use versions of the Fed’s survey.)

Gaps

Leaving aside race and ethnicity, the net worth of American families overall–the difference between the values of their assets and liabilities–held steady during the economic recovery. The typical household had a net worth of $81,400 in 2013, according to the Fed’s survey–almost the same as what it was in 2010, when the median net worth of U.S. households was $82,300 (values expressed in 2013 dollars).

The stability in household wealth follows a dramatic drop during the Great Recession. From 2007 to 2010, the median net worth of American families decreased by 39.4%, from $135,700 to $82,300. Rapidly plunging house prices and a stock market crash were the immediate contributors to this shellacking.

          Back about 10 years ago, we lived in a huge house with neighbors who were Atlanta Falcons players (their training camp was up the street). We had a friend who lived in an even NICER development nearby called Chateau Elan (anyone who’s been out in the NE exurbs of Atlanta is familiar with Chateau Elan…it’s a winery, spa, golf course, etc. Very fancy.). This dude’s home was easily in the millions, yet when the market crashed, his wealth, which was all tied up in real estate, completely dried up. Overnight, his house was empty, he took all his horses from the stables and disappeared.

          Turns out, within a year his wife left him, took the kids, and remarried. Once the cash was gone, and there were no more horses, expensive cars, or plastic surgery, she wasn’t interested. I believe for a while he was living out of his car.

          It was truly the grace of God that my own marriage survived. (I’m loyal almost to a fault.) We lost our home and were forced to move our family in with my elderly in-laws. It was rough, but we’re slowly coming back after 5 years of no job. I feel for the other guys whose families broke up over it.

    • Cid Campeador

      No more Tyrones . That’s major ” yesterday”. Now they all have what they think are African names and they’re also into Arabic names like Talib, Raheem, Shamir, Shamar and other names originating with the very people who enslaved them and in places like Sudan, who are STILL enslaving Black Animist Christians. Then there are the male names beginning with the French masculine article “le” meaning “the”. Another fad is the use of “De” at the beginning of the name. So we have a list of names like De Maricus/ le Maricus, De Shawn/ Le Shawn. For girls we have “la” as in LaShonda, La Queesha, all
      I don’t understand why they can’t see that their problems are in the majority self- inflicted. Any negative perceptions by Whites are due to the sociopath behavior of so many Black Americans.
      Illegitimacy is rampant, Children aren’t raised with moral values. As a native Philadelphia I lived through the years of the city’s decline. Their so called leaders whine and incite protests over poorly performing school as though the behavior of their children e.g violence against other students and faculty (John Bartram HS in Philadelphia and hate crimes against Asian Students at South Phila. HS), harassment of the small number of children who really want to learn and other assorted mayhem that never existed back when those neighborhoods that fed the schools were all White.
      When are they going to get it.? For decades to come will they still be blaming everything that happens to them on White people? There was certainly no Renaissance in Philly with the coming of Wilson Good or Michael Nutter or any other Democrat Mayor for that matter and the same sickness continues in most of our urban areas.

          I saw a Shatarious, a black female, on Facebook! Wonder what friends call her “for short”?

          • As an aside, we joke about “Shitavious,” but a lot of newbies don’t realize that that’s a real name. Look up Shitavious J. Cook, Decatur Illinois.

            But even I didn’t know until a few weeks ago why good ole Shitavious and three of his bell curve buddies are up on murder raps. It’s because all four of them are (alleged) to have ganged up and murdered a 15 year old white boy.

      but the article is not true, more whites are on some kind of public assistance than ever before, usualy foodstamps and medicaid since we can’t get the other kind (free 1200 housing goes only to the blacks and the proceeds go to the pockets of wealthy development, usualy white). The statistics are jaded. There are more poor whites because of this and going down. It was all about the real estate. always was.

          you have to develope a solid foundation. More white have killed whites than any other race. What binds us? God, law, the color of our skin, the way we think? When you agree on that, you have the foundation for a war we can win. Read the Jungle and watch the Grapes of Wrath. We need a western civilazation, a template and then we have the answer we need to win this war.

          We should look for a sugar-daddy who would fund a pirate radio station or stations from which we could broadcast the things posted on this and other sites.

          I think the leaders of our “movement” should look very, very hard for someone who could fund such a thing.

          What we lack is a platform from which to reach a vast audience.

          After all, why does the so-called main stream media spend so much effort suppressing news about events like the Christian and Newsome torture/murders.

          They do it because they know if such things were known to the public, there would be a revolution tomorrow.

      • SentryattheGate

        Yes, I agree, it is exasperating to hear the same old laments over and over again, and to think of all the time spent doing it! I wish more had listened to Patrick Buchanan, Jared Taylor, Samuel Francis decades ago, when we could have rebelled more effectively, as in homeschooling, secession(?), boycotts of affirmative action, immigration reduction, and whatever else? The Left began “boiling us frogs” long ago, slowing turning up the heat, now we’re feeling it! Let’s hope it’s not too late!? I guess, by your pseudonym, that you are in southern Calif.; I know that Californians voted heavily in favor of Proposition 187, to deny $$$$ to illegals, but was struck down bu ONE judge!! That was a “green light” for more illegals to flood in! How infuriating; isn’t that taxation w/o representation?

      • I agree and frequently think of that fact when I comment—that we’re beating a dead horse. However, it’s the only outlet we have to vent about the destruction of civilization. There’s not much whites can do without dire consequences.

      • Spikeygrrl

        You fail to understand that although to you and me and many other frequent posters here these issues are old news, EVERY DAY someone somewhere is encountering them for the very first time. Please do not disparage posters who RELISH the opportunity to engage these seekers at their own level.

        All that’s needed to make a “Progressive” is a few inane slogans and immersion in the MSM. This easily works on groups of any size. But to make Conservatives and/or Libertarians one must woo them ONE MIND AT A TIME.

    • Latino Nationalist

      How do you explain the fact that Indians average an income of $83,000 per year? Ooh, and they come from a country with an IQ of 85.

      • Batterytrain

        B/C of caste system?

      • BillMillerTime

        What is the average IQ of the Indians who come here?

        • WR_the_realist

          I’m not sure but it’s obviously higher than the average Indian IQ. We get the best and the brightest from India, we get the peasants from Mexico. So while Mexico and India have about the same average IQ, Asian Indians do much better here than Mexicans do. If we only had Mexican college graduates immigrating here they’d do about as well as the Asian Indians.

      • jayjohnston1 .

        The mean IQ of India may be 85. However, immigrants from India have been the “best and the brightest” out of a population of 1.3 billion people. The immigrants from India were lucky to have English as the language of instruction in their Universities. The top of graduates of their medical schools knowing they can earn at least 10 times more in the US and other western countries than in India immigrated to the US,Canada, UK, etc, and have taken advantage of the shortage of doctors in certain geographic areas.

        • Latino Nationalist

          You are absolutely right. Aren’t most Asians who live in the U.S selected based on profession?

          • SentryattheGate

            The Indians with higher professions should take care of their own! With a booming economy (10% growth), there are still 2/3rds of their 1.5 billion people WITHOUT TOILETS OR RUNNING WATER!

        • SentryattheGate

          Yes, but Indian schools/universities are fairly corrupt, right? Bribery gets you better grades, test scores, etc. I got to know an Indian woman “doctor” who has only 4 years of college; here in the US she doesn’t qualify as a MD, and she now wants the US to fund more college for her!

      • Oil Can Harry

        The average South Asian IQ is almost certainly higher than 85 and may be just below the white average of 100. AFAIK it’s never been widely measured.

        Also, as the other poster noted, we get the best and brightest.

      • archer

        If I were to guess the answer may be that Indian culture is still divided by the caste system, the upper castes are generally lighter skinned and better educated, they are at the top of a society of at least one billion people. I would not be surprised if their IQ’s were much higher than the general population, that is the Indian that comes here and buys hotels.

        • Spikeygrrl

          Dinesh D’Souza, need I say more?

        They get visas to come here. Customer service when to crap too.

        • joanofamerica

          Thank Bill Gates and the Dot com industry for that one.

        • Simonetta

          We should start demanding a fair trade.

          For every high IQ doctor or engineer that we get as immigrants from the 1% of the brightest South Asian Indians, we should demand that India take one or more of our Shitavishi.

          The big problem with all the immigration to the USA is that we get nothing in return, and this is contrary to all notions of diplomacy that have developed in the past 200 years.

          If we’re going to assume guardianship over 10% of the Mexican population (because they can’t stop breeding like rabbits) then we should demand 10% of the Mexican land and wealth in return. Draw a line from Brownsville, TX to Cabo San Lucas, Baja. Everything between this line and the Rio Grande becomes American territory. Or else take all your people back that you dumped into our country!

          • Anglokraut

            I like it, but the territory you mentioned is mostly desert, and the heart of the Sinoloa cartel, to boot. The Baja peninsula is beautiful, though underdeveloped because of the brutal heat and humidity. The infrastructure there is only just becoming developed enough to handle high-demand appliances like air conditioning. Not a lot of people there; gringo money is their life-blood, and they know it.

    As I have said before, blacks cannot accumulate wealth because a single family home is generally the biggest and best investment the average American makes…..unless they are black.

    • Bossman

      Blacks do do constructions. In much of the Caribbean Islands, they build their own houses. In the USA, there are all kinds of invisible rules and regulations that keep them from moving up; plus the fact that they are much too stupid to understand how society works.

      • Reynardine

        +1 for casual racism. -2 because it comes from you.

      • 48224

        No, there are no regulations to keep blacks out of building. In fact the opposite is true. In the city of Detroit over 50% of the company workers must be minorities to get some government contracts and all the minorities are Mexicans. So even with government incentives, and prevailing wage ($23 per hour) blacks will not work construction. I’m in this business and from Detroit.

        • Bossman

          Why will they not work in construction? There must be a reason for that. They are generally big and strong and can withstand a lot of sun so why are they afraid of it?

          • 48224

            There is more to construction that sweating and grunting. You have a misconception of what building things is all about. Big, strong and stupid are not good credentials. Blacks are great at mindless assembly line work! Putting the same screw in the same hole at General Motors 8 hours per day seemed to suit them well. Lots of black auto workers making great money…..and most of them broke.

          • Bossman

            A lot of posters at this website are complaining that Mexican “illegals” are stealing good construction jobs from American workers. Well then, if that’s the case you gotta give those “illegals” a lot of credit. It means that they are way better than USA Blacks.

          • Tarczan

            Small accomplishment.

            Easy really. While blacks were squeezing every dime out of white guilt, the Hispanic people were stealing their jobs and eating their lunch. Blacks made it easy with their hatred of whites and America.

            Latinos account for 15% of the population and 13% of those on welfare. Not equivalent to their population.

          • LexiconD1

            They are 15.7 % on welfare, and 17% of the population, that a HUGE over representation reviving welfare vs population. Not quite black, which is 30.8% vs 13% population, or whites that are 38% vs 75% population.

            Both Black and Latino way over represent compared to whites. Heck, whites aren’t even the ‘majority’ who receives welfare anymore.

            ****got those statics off a couple sites I Googled.

          • Massif1

            Que? Read again, hispanic “women” – they don’t make 15% of population. In hispanic households the woman is responsible to pumping out kids and waiting in-line for welfare benefits.

            We had a black radio talk show host who always complained that he never saw blacks in the construction trades. He went on rants all the time.

            Once he brought in a black man who ran a program to teach blacks construction. He told the host that when each class started there would be 15 to 20 black men enrolled.

            At the end of the program, he said, they consider the class a success if 2 or 3 STAYED to complete the program.

          • Bossman

            Were they being taught skills such as masonry and carpentry or just safety rules on a construction site? If they can’t work even as laborers then they must be more stupid than I ever imagined.

            The Mexicans here are like locusts, they consume, take, and/or steal everything they touch, with giving nothing more than more mouths to feed back. Giving illegals ‘amnesty’ means nothing more than more parasites to suck off the public troth, drowning our nation in welfare leeches…

            Just look at Houston! A real toilet in the making.

          • 48224

            Bossman, to work construction you must know how to read a tape measure, figure out angles, Pythagorean theorem (345 rule) add and subtract fractions, use a transit level, drive a bobcat, know hot to fix a nail gun when it jams, work in the COLD (it ain’t always hot as you seem to think)……this is all way too much for the average black man. Mexicans are damn good construction workers. Next time you drive by a construction site, take note of the racial make-up. If there are ANY blacks…..it’s a government project.

            I’ve done some minor work in construction and it is a lot more mentally challenging then I had first hoped, since you have to pay attention to detail, measurements, whether or not things were even and so on. Turning the Stop/Slow sign was probably the easiest work I’ve ever done, but I still had to pay attention.

          • stedman holder

            Why are you on welfare instead of working?

          • John R

            Because in the construction trade there are no liberal White females to seduce. Blacks want jobs that don’t require hard work.

          • anony

            They are irresponsible (won’t show up) and lazy.

        • Triarius

          Can confirm. Kwame did this years ago, then when the few blacks that were hired started quitting and not showing up for work the Detroit News did an article on it. Initially, iirc, the law was that 50% of the workers must be residents of the city, but that halted pretty much all construction and many companies said they simply won’t work there. Correct me if I am wrong.

      • Tarczan

        The foundations have to be to the proper depth and level, the walls have to be plumb, and the corners square. To achieve this, a certain ability in math and trig is required. Most darkies just can’t do it, nor do they want to learn how to.

        Where do you come up with this non-sense? Tell us about the invisible rules. In DC a negro can’t get a job because of all the illegal alien parasite leeches. Maybe blacks could get a job if you went home and tried to improve your own country.

          Christianity really works in Africa at passivating things so that there is enough order and stability to get business and investment going as well as stabilising families, liberals have to come in and spoil the faith for them because it’s to fundementalist for them. I’ve read arguments that the huge surge in crime that occurred in Blacks from the 1960s onwards was due to a decline in religion. It certainly correlates. Since Christianity is a stabilising influence radical-liberals see it as an impediment to the agressive methods they use.

    • joanofamerica

      But they are getting there, 60 years of AA are putting black in the lead in urban areas, weathr they earned it or not, usualy not. Some are getting the pic and home in these areas are appreciating more than white neighborhoods, most from insurance and government distribution. Whites cannot afford insurance in these areas more and more, day to day and live hand to mouth. Yur army is going to blacks now. Some don’t allow buses in their neighborhoods anymore. Whites (the culture) still try, they LIKE to work and NEED to know that their labors mean something but it won’t last for long I don’t think if you don’t form a concrete solution to what it means to be “white” or a western alliance.

  • Anglokraut

    Pew is welcome to come by my house: I haven’t worked in almost two years, my mother works 400% more for wages 50% less than what she used to earn, and the only thing keeping us afloat is my mother’s widow benefits from her dead second husband (who of course never bothered to buy life insurance, because he was going to live forever!)

          I don’t think we have to wait for that. I think a small group of activists getting active in local politics could make a big difference.

          • RationaliseThis

            Competent articulate pro white political activists aren’t invited onto the controlled mass media. Do you see Jared Taylor, Dr K MacDonald, Richard Spencer given air time? While we respect them in the blogosphere the best they can hope for in the MSM is a hatchet job. The media will however find someone without the savvy, someone that can be presented as uneducated. Or say someone with bizzare tattoos and a criminal record who discovered white gangs as a survival strategy in prison. Can be associated with the straw man villains they have created in Missisipi Burning or the endless WW2 movies.

            The tragedy is that the average American White must fund their dispossession via main stream media by a dozen direct dollars a month by subscriptions and ten times that much via advertisers.

            I no longer trust the MSM in anything, I go on line. That skepticism is good. However go there and you can also find any number of well funded racially leftist sites catering to left wing bias confirmation sites that do a pretty good job. There is a lot of information out there, most folks will drink the kool aid to get their entertainment.

            If one we could only get our kids not exposed to blame whitey propaganda, to maintain some innocence. However innocence will be impossible: your child will be exposed to race huckster shock tactics and they will come of deranged and scarred by it.

    • John R

      It’s called educating people. We are the alternative media. We are trying to get more Whites on board to see what is really going on in this society. You say we aren’t accomplishing anything? How about the George Zimmermann acquittal; the non-indictments of White police officers; the massive losses suffered by Obama and his cronies in recent elections? Why did these things happen? In my view because many Whites got educated on sites like this and turned away from the Liberal establishment media. Slowly, we are getting the message out.

    • DaveMed

      Along the lines of what John R said, it’s better to be getting important news out than to not be doing so.

  • Whitetrashgang

    The funny thing is a buddy and I went to the states and used some ones ID to work under, and just doing construction we both made about 80,000 after all our expenses in less than a year. Things in the states are really cheap compared to Canada and if you live in a van so is rent LOL. So I did this when I was 19 and yet these people have nothing? When me and Phil went down we knew nothing and just went where the storms had went through.

        If they did, at least they spoke the language and didn’t mooch off the welfare system.

    • SentryattheGate

      Yes, you took initiative/went to where the work was! That’s what people have had to do throughout history, until welfare came along (allowing the lazy to sit on their butts and say ‘they ain’t no work’).

      • Bossman

        This is what the undocumented migrant workers do. They go to where the work is.

        • Reynardine

          By “work” you mean “selling drugs” and prostituting themselves of course.

          • Bossman

            If they can make money out of it , why not? Drugs and prostitution should be legal. Only simpletons think that it should be illegal.

          • Anglokraut

            Ah, yes, the “victimless crime” argument. Okay, so say we try it like Germany, and legalize prostitution, and put the working girls in brothels, and guard them with hired security, and make them all use Depo and condoms, and monthly STD tests, and tax the hell out of their earnings…you really think some Mestizo chica will actually play by the rules that were re-written to her advantage?

          We can’t all just move around on a moments notice; giving up everything we worked for.

          That would make every community transient and unstable.

          • Brutus

            And that is what ending segregation made of every white community. When the blacks move in, it’s time to up stakes and move out. We’ve had to rebuild our country at least twice since the ’60s, and we wonder why our economy is in a shambles?

          • John R

            Good points. No one it seems, has ever done a study on the costs that this massive migration of blacks has done to America.

          Free stuff is what you mean.

      • Reynardine

        I moved hours and hours away from where I grew up, just for the jobs. Many don’t want to move, but really they’re all working at Starbucks still: America is big and you gotta follow the work.

        We used to have itinerant hobos that wandered around via the railway system and did many of these short manual jobs. Hobos were American through and through, and it’s sad to lose a large surplus of good white workers, though their lives were immensely hard.

        • LexiconD1

          That’s what my grandfather did, he rode the trains (saved money) following the harvest during the Great Depression. He and his brother (as the oldest two sons) sent almost all of their wages home to support the rest of the family. In those days picking the harvest supported families in a comfortable lifestyle. They lived better than most in rural Arkansas, for the times.

          This was, obviously, before illegals came and busted wages for harvest pickers.

          • Reynardine

            Cesar Chavez and many other proponents of American farm labor were also consequently anti-illegal alien.

          • LexiconD1

            Yes, I know. Funny how the illegal alien proponents leave off that aspect of Chavez…

          • SentryattheGate

            An inconvenient truth!

          • RationaliseThis

            Chavez also successfully lobbied to defund the development of automated harvesting. At that time the Australian research organisation CSIRO had a program to develop a range of fruits, grapes suitable for the Australian climate as well as mechanical harvesting. Due to strikes in the USA and after the American work was defunded those well researched American machines ended up in Australia where they became a massive success and spawned a hugely successful wine industry thst didn’t require cheap labour and farms hungry for cheap immigrant labour. Apart from specialist fruits such as blueberries intended for fresh sale and maybe some stone fruits (frozen, conserve fruits are mechanically harvested) labour is not required.

            At one point even Brazil was producing cheaper Oranges than the USA due to better harvesting. Cheap labour produces dumb management as well.

            Amazingly the USA does not grow olive oil. There are now Australian companies setting up in the USA using their technical knowledge. Harvesting will be automated.

            Japan’s auto industry is a success and its country is not over run with crime ridden immigrants because their racial attitudes prevented immigration and induced investment in robots. Germans, British, Americans all had robot technology in the 1960s but only the Japanese had the incentive to develop. The Germans now have their Turkish disaster.

            The Korean and Chinese workers in Japan don’t crate a cognitive decline.

        • TruthBeTold

          Yes you have to follow the work but once you get the work what do you do when you establish roots and own a house?

          Do you just keep moving?

          Are we all destined to be gypsies in search of work?

          • Reynardine

            On a certain level, yes I’d be willing to sell a house and move my family if I knew it would pay off in the long-run. My mother and father moved across several states fixing up run-down houses and such before settling down with steadier jobs. Even then, they moved a few times in the town, growing at the family grew until they managed to get a nice little ranch of their own.

            The internet makes keeping in touch with loved ones and finding out the best places for things (knowledge previously kept at a local level) to be much easier now. Travel is not only cheap today, but there’s a whole lot of it to choose from.

            I can’t think how hard it was for our ancestors who could maybe afford one boat ride across the Atlantic, knowing full well they may never see their parents or loved ones again. I get to see my parents every Christmas and it’s a damn miracle.

        Pre-2008, we used to say in the comment section that the coming economic collapse would bring about the necessary race war, or Second Civil War. Well, we got our collapse, but I guess it wasn’t bad enough, so time to set up another?

        • Sick of it

          The collapse continues, so there’s no telling what will happen.

        • LHathaway

          I think that’s just wishful thinking, mostly expressed to make the ‘losers’ feel better. Many of them have lost every way possible. Same as the obsession about how America is ‘over’ now. This may be designed to make some feel better but the reality is that America will go on after the decline and insignificance of many of us.

            I hope you are correct about the Mars thing–I am very doubtful of White people surviving another 1000 years without a serious effort to colonize and terraform Mars–and then shoot any unauthorized craft out of the sky if it is coming from Earth.

          • But we’ll get there, then some liberal or libertarian in our colonizing party will tell us that we need more diversity.

    The net worth for whites is within the range of typical net worth for Europeans and the net worth of the Bantus is higher than the average net worth of Bantus in their homeland so they are doing better thanks to a white infrastructure. They should thank us.

            Seriously? No, that is everyone’s problem, they are brainwashed into thinking they deserve a job they like, and then when they don’t get it they say life isn’t fair.

            That was the deal with occupy clowns, go tell them they could make good money being a truck driver or something like that and they’d turn their nose up at it.

            I say you do what you have to do, if you get a job you like wonderful, if not, you find one you can live on and not be a burden to society.

            Honestly tjh, I would tell your kids the realities of your finances, and say they may have to take some other field first, I had to do that, I drove truck for 8yrs till I got good enough with computers, did that for a few years and bought a farm, now here I am, like I say, you do what you have to do.

          • I am a convicted federal felon on the Terrorist Watch List. My FBI file says “firearms expert, explosives expert, chemist, ex-mercenary”. When I was still single, I looked into working for Blackwater, but they didn’t hire ex-cons. The microelectronics industry here has almost vanished, and since I’ll never have a security clearance, defense contractors like Lockheed-Martin are not an option. I applied at the Ford dealership near here, as I had taken classes on selling cars while I was locked up, but I needed to be bonded and insured. Ford gave me a red light on that, and they wouldn’t use the federal program that guaranteed it for me. The sales manager wanted me really badly. A pity, that. I’d have made a decent living and probably spent much of my income there on parts from Ford Racing.

            My last steady job was delivering pizza. I do some welding and machining out of the house for money, and one of the things I used to do was drive my truck around apartment complexes at the end of each month and retrieve wooden furniture and bicycles near their dumpsters, which I would refinish or repair and then sell. When one of my sister’s neighbors committed suicide, his family brought in a 30-yard roll-off dumpster and put his things in that. We raided that roll-off every evening, and we sold a whole lot of that stuff.

            I’ve been off paper for eight years, and don’t need to work, but I actually liked even the McJobs I was willing to take. That said, I also like being a suburban scrounger. We heated the house burning wooden pallets in the fireplace for several years, and I ran a magnet through the cold ash and so retrieved the heavy nails for later reuse. I’m out of those nails after using them up in various projects. Note to self: scrounge more pallets.

            Our tastes in entertainment are simple. We go fishing, work on cars (the HOA rules say not to, though nobody can see when the garage door is closed), my wife sews, we read, and play a lot of Neverwinter Nights on the household LAN I set up, running the cables through the heating ducts with a steel fish tape – the other night I karked the balrog that we had been so dreading. It was really rather easy. It’s not what one earns; it’s all about what one spends.

            My grandparents managed OK during the Great Depression. My paternal grandfather fought as a heavyweight boxer; he won eight fights and lost six. He later worked at a steel mill and eventually married his foreman’s sister. He had earlier joined the US army at age 15 after working the same coal mine for the previous two years, where his father was murdered by Pinkerton agents and Kentucky National Guardsmen. All three of his kids got PhDs: one in physics, one in chemistry and one in biology.

            I loathe work, except when I enjoy it, and at that point, I’d do it for free. I’ve done plenty of that anyway, working off misdemeanor charges – usually for being extremely insulting – and this sometimes requires me to later pick up garbage along the highway. We had to clean out out a homeless camp here in C.S. on November 18 after city police had them relocated and gave them two weeks to move their belongings. The two spoons I found I washed out, cut the handles off, and made into fishing lures, but I quite enjoyed it all. We finished early, and the cops said they had never seen one of those jobs done in one day, let alone early. We got credit for the whole eight hours, though it was more like six.

            We were a good team of strangers, and that makes for good work.

It not uncommon to get paid while an apprentice helper in electrical, plumbing, HVAC, etc. Then later, when he’s a bit older, start some college courses—he’ll more likely know himself better and what he wants to do, and be a more serious student (than someone just out of school).

    “The typical household had a net worth of $81,400 in 2013”

    Figures like this include the millionaires and billionaires in the equation. A lot of white people don’t even own property, let alone have a good paying job.

    • TruthBeTold

      This is the same kind of statistic that economists use to say wages are going up.

      For who?

      People who earn high wages in finance may get at 7 to 10% raise while someone on minimum wage is lucky if they get 2% of their minimum wage salary.

      The numbers economists throw around are very misleading.

      I’ve come to the conclusion that economists are CON artists. It’s in the name eCONomists.

    This article inadvertently reinforces another reason why miscegenation should be soundly rejected: not only does it have a perniciously dysgenic effect on one’s own offspring (and on the entire White gene pool as a whole),it also threatens to give a non-White spouse access to any accumulated wealth that White parents of those who are in interracial marriages have struggled to build up over time (e.g.,a potential future inheritance).

    I prefer to shop online just to avoid dealing with blacks in the stores. Dealing with blacks is painful and knowing they constantly complain about raises doesn’t help. You want a better paying job? Go get a better job. Instead, they picket in from of Wal-Mart and Burger King demanding better wages.

    • In one of my welding classes in 2009, there was a black gal who was obviously trying to upgrade her skill set. We chatted a little because we both had the same problem, our TIG welds in aluminum were cracking at first because we were going too slow. She had an additional problem, however. Her boyfriend would constantly call her on her cell phone, pestering her to leave class early and come home so he could get laid. The gal wanted to be able to make a reasonable living, and he was too short-sighted to be willing to back her up in her effort. Ever the trouble-maker, I suggested she turn off the silly thing while she was in class, just so she couldn’t even hear it ring.

      I love online shopping; even without blacks, it is simply a god-awful nuisance to drive around, shopping at brick & mortar stores. This time of year, it’s worse of course, due to the holiday crowds and the lousy driving weather. I figure I’ll let the UPS delivery driver suffer while I stay home and drink coffee. The fact that I am not on the roads also makes driving conditions that much less congested for everyone else, the decision becomes even easier with outfits that provide free shipping on orders above a certain dollar amount, so we cut out the costs of both sales tax (from out-of state orders) as well as shipping.

      One recent hazard is that thieves have been following UPS drivers around and stealing packages from customers’ doorsteps as they are delivered, but for someone who is home during the daytime, that’s not really an issue.

    Is there a constitutional requirement that mean income should be equal among racial groups?? As has been proven repeatedly, people with higher IQs will on average earn more than those with lower IQs. Of course, “people of color” would all be millionaires if income was correlated with the frequency of using the race card, shakedowns and other forms of intimidation.

    These researchers should compare Whites with Asians and also, Blacks with Asians when it comes to income among racial groups. Asians make about 20K p/y year more than Whites because of job choices and less humanity majors. A college degree has a worth in real markets.

  • JohnEngelman

    When blacks and whites earn the same amount of money whites are more likely to save money. Blacks are more likely to go into debt. This is because of different instincts that are due to evolving in different environments.

    Whites left a paleolithic environment ten thousand years ago. Blacks left it four thousand years ago. Farmers need to defer gratification. They cannot eat all of their grain. They cannot butcher all of their farm animals. What paleolithic hunters do not eat rots, so there is no advantage in saving anything.

    Every non cosmetic racial difference is due to evolving in response to different population pressures lasting for hundreds and thousands of year.

    • RationaliseThis

      I wouldn’t be so harsh…they seem well niche adapted to the modern liberal welfare state.

      Modern medicin, lack of tropical disease, impulsive sex drive, plus the modern states limits on use of police capital punishment or custodial punishment also mean a propensity to chimp out are no disadvantage. They are reproducing more rapidly than Whites.

      • JohnEngelman

        Any reproductive advantage blacks have is temporary. Having lots of largely illegitimate children does not work in the long run. What matters is having descendents in subsequent generations.

        Computer technology increases the relationship between intelligence and income. This will contribute to the evolution of higher intelligence.

        During human evolution every technological advance, from the use of the most primitive stone weapons and tools to the computer, has benefited those who were capable of learning how to use the advance, while it has made it impossible for the others to continue to survive and reproduce.

        • Reynardine

          Lots of illegitimate children does work in the long run if you can find a cuckold. It’s worked with at least a couple of generations of blacks so far. Distributed brood parasitism is a successful evolutionary strategy, as evidenced by the old-world cuckoo. Problem is, blacks are adamant about destroying the race that they’re cuckolding.

          Computer technology is a self-tutoring technology. You can learn more about how to use the computer by using a computer, and a good portion of Africa has access to smartphones and internet-enabled feature phones. The internet is special because it’s an informational network: advances and news show up almost instantaneously for the entire world. New programs make previously difficult problems accessible for the common man (note the huge variety of calculators on the web).

          Contrast this with a technology such as steel, which requires transmission from blacksmith to blacksmith and a hefty knowledge of metallurgy to perfect.

          Blacks have already shown that they can leverage network technology to organize flash robs, increase welfare consumption and further gang activity. A brief overview of phone usage in prison can definitely confirm this.

          You also assume that technological advances increase the breeding potential of its users. I can assure you as a young single engineer that this is completely false, and decent mate selection is dismal. Distractions for my males peers such as pornography and games seriously diminish their male drive for procreation. Female peers are also distracted with textual pornography, and enter into a state of hyperselection with males.

            Blacks can learn how to use computer technology if it is simple enough. Few of them can learn how to program a computer. I doubt that any have been able to design a computer, or a computer language.

            Very few completely new computer languages are written these days because there’s no need… most are just subsets and improvements of former ones… as a commenter who claims to have been IT for a long time you should know this. I personally know many black people who constantly contribute to the linux community, make commits on github, run and contribute codexes for different development platforms etc
            In my graduating cs class at manchester, many of the top students were african.
            You should probably do some research into how many technology initiatives are currently undergoing in Africa. You may be surprised. I’ve worked with Sudanese students who could barely speak english but could set up a simple risc in no time. I know kenyan students that design 8086 pcs from scratch for fun. Most third world students are just limited by accessibility to components, newer technology and funding.
            This is probably the worst place on the internet to defend a sweeping generalization about black people but yeah, my two cents.
            You can make all the arguments you want for segregating with black people, I have no qualms with that. However the popular notion that nearly all are basically retarded as you so imply isn’t factual. It only shows that despite claiming to have intelligent arguments for your cause (especially you Mr.John Engleman), you’re still susceptible to writing excessive hyperbole.

            You can make all the arguments you want for segregating with black people.

            – LossyCompression

            I do not believe that blacks should be discriminated against. I also do not believe that blacks should be discriminated in favor of through affirmative policies. I think I have made that clear.

          • LossyCompression

            First, that was not the point I was trying to make. That statement was a general address to the position most amreners have on the presence of black people. It’s odd that of all that I wrote you chose to address that. I already know your position on many issues. I’ve been a visitor of this site for quite some time.

            Secondly, segregagtion is not the same as discrimination. You falsely equate the two unless you believe blacks not having access to white people is a form of discrimination (which would probably make a nice black IQ joke). I tend to think that most people here, including you, believe that white people would be much better off totally separated from black people. In many ways I do too, though that is too hardcore a stance for me to take.

            Thirdly, and back on point, it’s the sweeping generalisation you made that made me comment. You’re one of the more rational commenters so I take your comments a bit more seriously than others. You tend to argue with fact rather than emotion. So I just thought I’d weigh in with some personal experience on why your comment was a gross exagerration.

          • JohnEngelman

            Internationally, nearly all of the cutting edge work on computer hardware and software has been done in the United States. Very little of it has been done by blacks in the United States or elsewhere.

            I have probably worked with about 200 computer programmers. Four of them were black. Two clearly owed their jobs to affirmative action, and were not marginally capable of performing their jobs adequately.

            Nevertheless, Jesse Jackson and others are pressuring high tech firms to hire more blacks.

          • JohnEngelman

            In his Race, Evolution, and Behavior, Professor J. Philippe Rushton wrote, “The theory of r-K life histories explains the worldwide three-way pattern in race differences. The r-strategy means being very sexually active and having many offspring. The K-strategy means having fewer offspring, but with both mother and father giving them more care”

            The K-strategy is followed by the more evolved species and races. In the long run it is more effective.

            The high rate of black population growth during the past century has depended on white medicine, white nutrition, and white welfare checks.White benevolence of this sort has expiration dates.

            “The K-strategy is followed by the more evolved species and races. In the long run it is more effective.”

            But perhaps not in tropical Africa where infectious diseases are more prevalent. In premodern conditions, not even the most careful parents can control for, say, tse-tse fly bites.

          • That same K-strategy also produced a civilization that developed the scientific methodology that allowed the correct identification of insect disease vectors, as well as preventative measures and treatments. Carlos Finlay proposed mosquitoes as the culprits for the spread of yellow fever, for example, and a team lead by Walter Reid proved him right. David Bruce did the same thing with the tse-tse fly and sleeping sickness, and Ronald Ross proved it with mosquitoes and malaria.

            Civilization of a sort is taking hold in sub Saharan Africa. Civilization rewards superior intelligence with prosperity. Prosperous men can have more children who survive and reproduce than poor men.

            I am confident that dysgenics is a passing phenomenon. In sub Saharan Africa, as elsewhere, the most intelligent men will tend to have the most descendants.

            If current trends toward interracial procreation continue, there will be one hybrid race on this planet a thousand years from now. Nevertheless, this uni racial species will inhabit sub Saharan Africa. It will be descended from those who currently are in the upper one to five percent of the IQ range.

            There are cities with skyscrapers, mobile phones, a semblance of a real economy. There’s also warlordism, civil war, disease, destitution, and primitivism.

          • RationaliseThis

            The best study for this is anonymous conservatives book “The evolutionary Strategy of Politics: r/K”. He says K strategy is a byproduct of surplus production in western civilisation. The K strstgist, liberals and rabbits alike believe that there are infinit resources out there to just take. The liberal acceptance of promiscuity (which in the absence of contraception leads to increased reproduction) is an example of this. The ultimate r strategist might be wolves: tightly organised and cooperative, hierarchical with only the alpha pair breading. Wolf packs compete with each other for territory. They do not have unlimited resources but limited ones. They are careful about who and when is allowed to mate. Alphas are not viscious: they fight, one shows dominance and they then cooperate. K strategists will use deception to overcome a stronger competitor, note thir love of charisma, often seen as falsity and shallowness by conservatives. Liberals don’t love Blacks, Muslims or Hispanics but the do use them to create diversionary fights and blame conservative Whites. Most leftist newspaper articles aren’t about helping blacks improve their position but about blaming conservatives. Likewise they often side with the enemy morally. While conservative K strategists are fighting of accusations of they r strategists have gained political power.

      “When blacks and whites earn the same amount of money whites are more likely to save money. Blacks are more likely to go into debt.”

      Worked years ago for a low-end finance company, and black short sightedness is what kept the doors open. Kept loans open indefinitely that effectively charged triple digits in APR! To your point specifically, had one customer, elderly black lady who had been collecting welfare as long as any employee at the office could remember. She won a small lottery prize of about $1,000. Did she come promptly pay off the darn thing so she could keep that $100 plus a month she’d been paying us for time immemorial? No, not exactly.

      She paid her loan DOWN just enough to refinance it into a LARGER loan than she had before, so that she left with just slightly more cash than she walked in with. And in the process, permanently increased the amount of her payment to us every month!

        I have read that women could farm in Africa without the help of a man. In a frigid climate a plow was necessary. That required the strength of a man.

        In any species, when females do not need the help of a male to raise their young the males fight for the females, and become more violent. Aid to Families with Dependent Children, and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families can be seen as promoting lethal violence between black men. The men are fighting for sexual access to the females.

        • Very perceptive, and probably spot-on, but I would add that fighting for access to females isn’t really necessary; young men with plenty of time on their hands – because they have made themselves effectively unemployable in a modern economy – will find destructive things to do with that time.

            This issue is developing in the White community as well. Don’t be so arrogant to pretend that White women are breeding any better these days.

            White females are breeding with “bad boys” and shunning the “nerdy boys”.

            They are using the govt to pay for the kids or getting some simp Beta White male “nerd” to marry her after having another man’s child.

            Single moms are quickly becoming the normal breeding pattern among White females under 30.

            As William Shockley spoke about dysgenetic development in the black community, so it occurs in the White community.

            In another generation, the Whites will have the same breeding patterns as the ghetto blacks.

          You know some random person made a comment on the internet the other day, “When men fight it is always really over women”. I immediately dismissed the comment but then later wondered about it.

          “In any species, when females do not need the help of a male to raise their young the males fight for the females, and become more violent”

          I suspect you could have reworded that comment in a way to make it more sympathetic to the men’s movement. Aren’t you always on the cutting edge? Only a violence against men act can save us now. . . Well, maybe it’s to late, but perhaps others can learn from us.

    • Every non-cosmetic racial difference is due to a big gap in intelligence between whites and blacks.

    • Jimmy Joseph

      The problem with your K and R type strategy argument is that Whites are DEVOLVING into the more primitive reproduction strategy.

      White Single mothers are quickly becoming the NORM in the White community.

      Feminism and Welfare are quickly destroying the White community (which is only about 1 generation better off than the blacks).

      At this rate, Whitey will be ghetto like in a few generations.

  • Atheist Realist

    one of the things Arthur Jensen would say was that even when controlling for income, the white-black intelligence gap was almost as large. Isn’t it possible it was the wrong formula. If one looks at NET WORTH as opposed to income, I doubt blacks and whites with parents of the same net worth do that much differently (maybe a half standard deviation better for whites).

        ..or, to put it another way:

It is thus my first thought whenever I read about blacks’ self-inflicted woes. Mike Brown was a fine example: a strong 18 year-old like Brown would have had pretty good chances landing a job landscaping, unloading supplies at construction sites or the like, and then he’d have been at work that August afternoon instead of robbing convenience stores, strutting down the middle of city streets and assaulting police. His criminal parents didn’t steer him down a disciplined, productive path, however, and now they feel entitled to blame the rest of (white) society for his being shot. Go cry me a river, Lesley McSpadden!

  • Xerxes22

    I don’t think the government counts welfare benefits, EBT cards, section eight etc. as income in these surveys. Thus the income gap looks much worse than it really is.

    • shawnmer

      Keep in mind the difference between wealth and income. This graph measures the value of your assets net against your liabilities. Govt benefits would be cash flow that doesn’t count unless it accrues to savings and becomes an asset. Obviously this doesn’t happen often for that crowd, it’s quickly consumed.

      • Even middle-class blacks often have quite different spending habits than those of whites. Instead of buying a used Toyota Corolla, they’ll frequently lease a Lexus, with more due at the lease signing than the Corolla would have cost to purchase outright. During the speculative real estate boom, they often bought into completely surreal home mortgage schemes. They tend to ridicule the way whites dress, but there’s another side to that equation: a closet full of used, designer clothes does not constitute “wealth” (I am wearing “Wrangler” jeans with battery acid holes in both thighs, a free “Norwest” bank t-shirt old enough to vote, and a 14 year-old sweatshirt). Their homes are often set for sauna-like temperatures, but while they may find this comfortable, that clearly falls into the “money down the toilet” category and also isn’t wealth.

        • shawnmer

          Excellent point! Their car choices are in plain sight, but I can attest personally to their indoor heating preferences having been a chase man for the the finance company I mentioned, which meant going to their homes. Sweltering in most of them.

    Now take race out of the equation and see how the wealth is distributed based upon IQ and I bet you will get the very same results with blacks being disproportionately poor. This would prove mental ability is the key factor in determining wealth and that racial discrimination is not the cause for the disparity.

    • Any high school kid with an iota of sense would know that dropping out, instead of staying in at least for access to cheap or free vo-tech classes will result in them hitting the work force only to compete in a race to the bottom with illegal aliens for low-paying McJobs. For those even worse in the planning department, teenage pregnancies are also a factor; those young women are saddled with kids to care for while they eke out a living mopping floors or washing motel room laundry. Once again, the IQ factor that the left loves to claim doesn’t exist rears its head.

    I was fortunate enough to be able to sit at a dinner party with 4 lovers of diversity tonight, all of them sheltered whites. They real issue is that folks like this have no practical experiences with typical blacks. So I mentioned I was from Detroit and exposed them to reality. I saw my first knifeing in second grade when a black fifth grader knifed another kid at school. I told them about the black man who raped and sodomized his 9 month old baby, who almost died, who had to have reconstructive surgery on her female organs and intestines. I told stories until a woman pleaded with me to stop. It was too much for her. You can’t just blame their failures on stupidity. I know a lot of stupid whites that get along fine in the world because they work hard and do right. Civil behavior is an evolutionary trait that is nurtured by civil societies. It’s in short supply among blacks.

          Two grown black guys – friends – were hanging around at the home of one of them. They got into an argument – get this – over who made the best Kool-Aid. The winner of this heated argument was the one who shot the other to death, on the spot. There was a link posted here some years ago, and the regular readers here were stunned. Here we all thought one simply followed the directions on the backs of the paper packets, so there’s no way to err. Apparently however, making Kool-Aid is an art form in some quarters, perhaps because following the directions on the packets presupposes the ability to read.

I’ve been in many situations where I just couldn’t upset the hostess, and if I were the hostess in a given situation, I couldn’t very well hammer my own guests. It’s a losing hand. All I do is pray daily that they experience firsthand the consequences of their idiot beliefs, and for myself, I try to avoid criminal blacks and libtards (which means a significant number of white people and virtually all blacks, though I am happy to be cordial to conservative, sensible black people).

        Don’t be hard on yourself. Just being willing to think for yourself and go against the horde of brainwashing we get every day is more than enough. I love the fight. that is far too much to expect from yourself. If you don’t love the sting of the battle, you can’t keep the fight up. You burn out. Be proud that you can maintain your sanity in a society gone crazy. That alone puts you in a very elite minority.

          I love upsetting ‘open minded liberal’ friends. Trouble is the friendship rarely lasts once you have exposed their hypocrisy and adherence to a belief system based on contradiction and lies.

          The facts and evidence are so strongly in our favour it’s like shooting fish in a barrel discussing race with them. They react with emotion and seem incapable of debating these issues objectively.

          I really struggle to bite my lip but in the times we live in sometimes biting your lip is the best policy unless you want to end up jobless with few friends.

    I went to college in Philly from ’76 to ’80. I lived in Center City & visited my brother at UPenn in West Philly. The whole, entire, complete place from one end to the other was one giant black, dangerous sh*thole. the Italian Market area was nice, though.

    • JohnEngelman

      If your college was subsidized by the government you benefit from taxes.

      • If your college was subsidized by the government, it was subsidized by state property taxes and federal income taxes which your own parents had paid for years.

        • JohnEngelman

          Yeah I know. I do not complain about taxes. I complain about tax cuts for the rich. Those tax cuts never did me any good.

          • Cuts on capital gains would help me enormously. As it stands, I have invested so that dividends are automatically reinvested without being taxed (this is tax-free because I never have actual control of the dividend money). I only face a capital gains haircut if I take a distribution. In the meantime, that stuff is beating the market more often than not.

            In the meantime, our habits are cheap enough that sales and other taxes case a very small shadow in our lives. We drive old cars, which are cheap to register. I homebrew hard cider and make fishing tackle, which cuts into federal excise tax takings. Sayaka sews good office clothes, and I wear ratty old clothes because of my work in the shop here at home, so the city is getting dinged up on what would otherwise be sales taxes on clothing. My work boots are combat boots I’ve had since 1991. Given that they were broken out of reserve stores in Zagreb, there’s no way of knowing how old they are.

            If I could touch some of my own money – remember that I paid income tax on it when I earned it in the first place – untaxed, there are some things I’d do with it, but so long as continuous, reiterative parasitizing of my old work and wise investment is considered a “public good”, I’ll just let stay where it is.

            The “public” can cry me a river. Go eat cake.

            “I have invested so that dividends are automatically reinvested without being taxed (this is tax-free because I never have actual control of the dividend money). ”

            Better check into this. If those dividends were earned on money outside of a 401k/IRA (” remember that I paid income tax on it when I earned it in the first place”), then the dividend income is taxable even if automatically reinvested, IMHO. You had “control” in that you authorized the reinvestment.

          Most White folks would do best, by far, just being just left alone. Education, retirement, training all works out. There was no massive poverty. The U.S. Government once operated fully of small tariffs and liquor taxes. After having given women the vote the doughboys came back from war to find that women and progressive Protestant preachers had banned alcohol which necessitated income tax. Add in fractional reserve central banking replacing treasury issued money and thereby creating a permanent debt that “must be paid” (basically by police backed internal revenue) you have centralised power impeaching freedom, autonomy and self determination.

          Ron Paul has it right regarding getting rid of the Fed. Treasury issued money imposes sensible taxes, money supply and prevents speculative bubbles.

        Yes, fixing the roads, yada, yada. Goes without saying. But giving it all away to scabby, lice ridden lowlife immigrants & lazya$$ “entitled” Americans-different story.

      • MBlanc46

        And using it to further the interests of blacks and Hispanics to the detriment of white Americans.

  • That phenomenon will only accelerate as technology becomes cheaper. A 3-D printer that cost $100,000 some years back now runs about $1,000. Twenty years ago, a reasonable home PC – a 486/66 – ran about $2000, but a good one isn’t anything like that expensive now, in spite of inflation. In the news recently, some fellow made a kid a prosthetic hand in his home workshop using a 3-D printer. The guy cheerfully described it as “like being Bat Man, but without Bruce Wayne’s money”. I’ve got a 3-D printer on my “get one” list, and I’ll set up one of the spare PCs and monitors here as a dedicated machine to run it. I’ll build another workbench for the whole shebang, with castering wheels on the legs, so it can be stored in a corner of the shop when it isn’t being used.

    If this means another “aspiring rapper” ends up pitching a fit because his new job flipping burgers doesn’t pay enough, that’s no skin off my nose. In fact, the irony in the situation where the same folks who are squeezing whites out of what were once clean, safe neighborhoods are simultaneously being squeezed out of the workforce by their own inability and unwillingness to adapt, I find rather amusing.

    Interesting link. Often with this sort of thing it will have been done by a black or ‘liberal’ in order to heighten the witch hunt for ‘waysism’.

        Exactly, the left feel what is right and hence that is all that matters. A black thug attacks a cop, he must have been offended by the white cops racists attitude. A black kid drops out of school and gets menial jobs and resents his life, it must be white racism which made him fail. A black girl gets knocked up and her boyfriend abandons her, it is because of institutional racism.
        All of these things happen in white, Hispanic and Asian communities too, but then it isn’t racism. Odd thought processes those liberals cling to.

          • Walter Goerlitz

            The propaganda of the left has been devastating, look at an 18 yr old black man from 1950 and one today. I think it is sad they have left leftists and liberals destroy their future as they have.

  • Jimmy Joseph

    The real reason for the collapse of wealth among blacks (outside of their low IQs and inability to have time horizon thinking towards wealth) is due to single moms. Marriage is virtually non existent in the Black community due to welfare and feminism.

    I wouldn’t be so haughty feeling as a White person. Due to the rapidly escalating number of single moms in the White community, the wealth of the White race will decline accordingly. This is already apparent among young Whites. Younger Whites have very low net worth, far less than previous generations at the same age.

    Ergo, Whites and Blacks will be “equal” in wealth in the future after the older Whites die off.

  • Jimmy Joseph

    I have addressed this above.

    I believe the White community is going through a major de-evolution in terms of intelligence.

    White females are quickly becoming single moms, with the majority of the under 30 births to “bad boys” and “playas”.

    The “nerd” type guy who always did well in the White community during the 1950s-80s is OUT. The provider male that required high intelligence is becoming obsolete as these females don’t value this attribute.

    They are more about the “Magic Mike” lifestyle than the IT computer guy or aerospace engineer or even physician.

  • Jimmy Joseph

    As White females breed like Black women, the White racial IQ will continue to decline. White female births are:

    1) Increasingly to single mothers under 30. There are as many single moms as “married” women under 30 among White females.
    2) Breeding patterns of single moms is very similar to that of Africans. They are breeding with the “bad boys” and “Magic Mike” type dudes.
    3) Provider males with high IQs are OUT among White females in their 20s. They are only interested in their 30s after they had multiple trains rode on them by bad boys. Provider White males might get the “benefit” of marrying one of these great women.

    As William Shockley spoke about dysgenic breakdown among the black community, with the lower cognitive members quickly outbreeding the higher cognitive members, so does it now occur among the White community.

    The only community that still values “nerd” provider males (the foundation of any advanced civilization) are the Asian nations.

    This is why the Asian countries will dominate the future. They both avoid feminism and value their “beta males” who are the people who produce everything.

    • The Dude

      Well-to-do men will always be attractive to females of any age. Yes, the a-hole type is attractive to straight females, especially in their twenties, but “rich f***” always beats a-hole hands down, even more so if the rich f*** is an assertive man who knows what he wants in life. I know what I’m talking about.

      The reason Magic Mike is the main reproducer in the black community is that there aren’t enough well-off successful males in it, so the females have to fall to their other instinctive choice: the bad boy.

      • Jimmy Joseph

        I don’t fully agree that the rich “provider” male wins out.

        You don’t “win out” if you have to choose a single mom that has already had children with some “bad boy”. You are just spending your money on them.

        Also, the successful man must worry about divorce. He has far more to lose than the “bad boy”.

        The female can divorce him and take his assets, home, alimony, etc. After she has taken much of his resources, she can go back to her “bad boy” boyfriend.

        I have seen his plenty among younger women.

        The women don’t long term respect the provider because they can take him to the cleaners. These women understand this concept and use it to their advantage.

        They are overly nice during the initial courting phase but after marriage, they don’t have to put on the act.

        • The Dude

          Well, relationships are a market. And as in all markets, offer and demand are a two-way street. A single mother will be less in demand among the wealthier and/or more successful folks. She doesn’t have that many options for a good provider herself.

          I am what could be called an upper middle class guy, and when looking for a stable partner, I wouldn’t look twice at women with children.

          Furthermore, women are expected to financially contribute to the relationship even if they’re not the home’s main breadwinner. There are more females than males in colleges, more and more women are entering the workforce, and women are making more money on the whole. My fiancée works part-time, and she takes care of all her personal needs (clothes, etc) as well as food and household appliances. I took care of buying a house, paying it down, and paying its bills. It’s still way more than she’ll ever contribute, but I consider that as a fair deal, given that I’m expecting her to pop out around eight children in the next 15-20 years.

          As for taking one’s assets and all, there’s something called a pre-nup.

          • Jimmy Joseph

            I like your attitude.

            Are you from the South? Maybe it is still better down there.

            Prenups are good but they can be broken in court these days.

            If she has eleven children for you, then she has done her part.

            I find it very hard to find good women like the one you describe.

            I often meet entitled princesses who claim to be “independent”, will have at most 1 or 2 children but require a nanny, single moms, etc. It is very difficult out there in the northern states, particularly bigger and mid sized cities.

            I have dumped many women before who won’t for prenups because they “aren’t romantic”.

            Some of the single moms act like having another man’s child shouldn’t be a negative. They will say things like “don’t you like children, why are you being so judgmental?”.

          • Prenuptial agreements are not romantic, but a marriage between two people who already have valuable assets is really a marriage of finances. We established that if things didn’t wok out, we would each keep pre-existing assets and appreciation on those for ourselves. This way, I wouldn’t lose a house I had already paid off and end up in a homeless shelter if things didn’t work out. I have her saving and investing half of everything she makes and as much into her 401(k) as is allowed, and if we buy a large house someday, it’ll be bought outright and that’ll all be in her name. We’ll save my townhouse and rent it out in that event, and if we later get divorced, I still have my own home, and willl end up right back here, quite unhappy but otherwise OK. For a 34 year-old, Sayaka now has a lot of money.

            Lying about money or concealing it in a divorce or bankruptcy constitutes felony fraud and perjury, so I don’t recommend it. This is instantly federal if a bank is involved. One of my cellmates in federal prison was in for bankruptcy fraud, and being locked up drove him pretty much crazy, even though he was only in for about a year. I still have nightmares about going back to prison, and in these nobody will tell me why I am back inside. Don’t do that at home, kids! These are at least some relief from some worse ones I have.

            I once received an unintentional distribution from one of my fund managers and thought about investing it in a different manner with the same bank, but, but, but I realized that it had to go straight back into the same investment, or I would be committing some sort of opportunistic investment fraud. I didn’t make as much money as I could have, but a daytime life without worry was worth every penny.

          • Jimmy Joseph

            The current marriage contract with no fault divorce is “unromantic”.

            The prenup just rearranges the existing contract into more favorable terms for the person with more assets (usually the man since women are hypergamous).

            I would not put myself in a vulnerable position with a woman, where she can take a large chunk of my hard earned money, alimony, inheritance, etc.

            Sounds like you did well with your current wife.

          • One possible advantage I had was that I didn’t get married until I was 40. Some people get married young and it works out great, but others make disastrous mistakes. At my ten-year high school reunion, about 100% of the people who had gotten married before age 25 were already divorced at age 28. That was rather sobering. Lots of folks simply do a lot of growing up in their twenties, and end up being rather different people by age 30. My own solution was to slow down and immerse myself in work and hobbies. I bought a decent townhouse when I was 30 and paid off the mortgage when I was 38 (some of the wisest things I have ever done).

            My best friend from high school has been through two divorces. Prior to the second of these, he and his wife separated, sold their house and split the proceeds. She wasted her half of the money. They then reconciled, and when they got divorced for good five years later, she got half of what he had left. Isn’t that special? He was also stuck with enormous alimony payments which stopped only when she died of an accidental prescription drug overdose shortly before the alimony was set to expire, and she had saved none of that for their daughter’s college education. Her parents reached her house first, searched it, and destroyed her will. They even demanded their own grand-daughter’s car, which my friend – not her mother – had bought and which was titled in the girl’s name, rather than that of her mother.

            I have a notarized will, with one copy in my mother’s safe-deposit box, one copy in my wife’s safe-deposit box, and another on file with a lawyer downtown.

            My friend has been making about $80,000 a year for more than the last 15 years, and has effectively nothing to show for it. I believe his unfortunate case represents an epic example of how not to do these things.

            JJ, allow me to inject a piece of learning for which I’ve paid a dear price. “Having another man’s child” is not a monolith. It has many shades and varieties. The best is a widow. Of course, a woman eligible for marriage (to you) must have experienced something awful if she is a widow so young, but notwithstanding the possible effects of trauma upon the poor girl, a widow does not have to deal with the father of her children. And neither do you. To wit, if the father of your wife’s children is still alive and still in the picture, this is an existential hazard for you, the new husband. The hazard shows up in any number of ways, and the politics can be treacherous for you and your marriage. Parents will fight about the management of their children even in a traditional “intact” household like the one in which most of us grew up. After a divorce, however, or if the parents never were married, there may be an additional thick traffic of emotional baggage between the two former partners as they butt heads not only regarding the children but regarding the breakup of their relationship as a couple. Much of this is implicit, like shadows, but it matters. You, as the new husband, will find yourself right smack in the middle of this emotional traffic. The worst moment, which I experienced too many times to count, is when your wife is wrong and the “ex” is right…you, the new husband, will be stuck: “Do I speak my mind?” Your wife will take your head off for not supporting her and “taking his side.” I’ve gone a bit too long here, but I hope that you are both amused and edified, JJ. Bottom line is always and everywhere the same, that you must choose wisely. An hour from now, you may run into a woman who is the best match in the universe for you, and she may already have a kid or two. My strategic advice to you is to make sure that you don’t get boxed in to your age cohort, i.e., always reach out to older guys, or guys with experiences that differ (the more, the better) from your own experience. Be smart. And enjoy the ride!

          • Jimmy Joseph

            I only make an exception for widows.

            I’m from Nevada. I don’t consider myself to be the typical conservative guy. I’m more of a dreamy guy who likes to plan stuff ahead.

            That said, I don’t believe it’s that extraordinary for a woman to want to have many children. That is, if the conditions are there for it. Whether they hold typical feminist stances or not, most women have a natural urge to reproduce. I remember it was my mother who wanted a fourth child and my father who refused. As me and the other siblings were getting older and calmer, and rarely got out of ours rooms (thank you, internet), my mother suggested that the house would get more lively with a fourth child. And the old man responded, “Is this fourth child of yours gonna build his own room?” Flat response, but I don’t blame him. Three children was all they could they afford and having a fourth one would’ve been stupid.

            But anyway, women do like having children. Many like children that aren’t even theirs.

            Personally, I want children for my own Hitlerian (albeit peaceful) fantasy of armies of white people growing exponentially and spilling out to other countries. I asked my now-fiancee in the first week about her thoughts on large families. She said, “mainly positive”. I asked her how she felt about being part of one, then told her that that part of the relationship was important for me and that I wouldn’t waste more of her time and future if she wasn’t into it.

            She didn’t respond right away. She asked me about the reasons I wanted that, and how I would see us in a few decades. I painted her the picture right away (minus the Hitlerian fantasy), one that I had painted in my mind for quite some time. I then hinted that I would get there with or without her. She said that it was a very nice picture, and she stayed. I took that as consent.

            So again, I don’t think it’s that extraordinary for a woman to agree to that.

            When it came to the prenup. I gave her the documents to sign them. She knew right away what they were about. She asked if I didn’t trust her. I responded, “I don’t trust Life.” (Okay, it was kind of a smooth bullshit answer, but it had some truth in it). Anyway, four or five days later, she left me back the document signed on my nightstand, and we haven’t talked about it ever since. She didn’t argue much because she knew I wouldn’t budge on that one.

            Yeah, it did put a damper on that phase of our relationship, but I’d rather live an awkward week and get out with a prenup. I took her to a fancy dinner after that, and things slowly came back to normal.

            I don’t know how they could broken in court. Sure, they don’t cover alimony, but I think that is it. My lawyer’s tone was very reassuring. I’ll look closer into that.

            As for single mothers, it’s not about being judgemental. I don’t judge them. I just don’t want to provide for a child that isn’t mine. If the biological father is alive, then the State should track him down, make the necessary tests, and make him pay his fair share of alimony.

            Good luck finding the right one!

          • RationaliseThis

            No sense in crying over spilt milk. Married women are far more conservative than single women. I suppose if you are prone to being left unsupported with child one tends to a degree of welfarism. The female love of celebrity, the humanities, the arts tends to expose them to more propaganda. Kindness is considered a virtue and attractive for a partner and women are a little more inclined to “show it” perhaps atavistically to show their loveliness. I favour kindness to small fury critters. The bulk of White women now vote Republican (sort of conservative but faux) but not near enough. If we had them on side we could still win outright.

      “What we have today is that same working-woman hypergamy now directed to powerful men who are not her husband. The modern wife leaves the world of her husband every morning to submit to sexy male rulers presiding over the parallel world she inhabits during the day. She still has a boss, but it’s no longer her husband. The temptation for her to cheat, either bodily or in mind, must be great. The male equivalent would be as if dutiful husbands were catered to on the job by a steady stream of swimsuit models. Even the firmest virtue will bend to perpetual succulent vice.

      This is why I argue that feminist-inspired, female-aggrandizing public policies should be repealed. “Pro-woman” (aka pro-r-selection) policies like Title IX and mandated maternity leave create perverse incentives for a sub-Saharan female-forager style social system that channels natural female hypergamy toward company men and away from family men. Men — particularly men with little experience bedding women — have a hard time understanding this primal craving of women for higher status mates, because men don’t give a fig about female status. To help focus minds, recall what you as a man feel when a beautiful young woman poured into a slinky cocktail dress sits close to you and smiles. That’s what women feel in the presence of powerful male bosses commanding them to do their bidding.”

        RT, you got an enthusiastic “up” vote from me, but I’m compelled to tell you that your excellent thinking would be more effective if you would clean up your writing. Nothing is profoundly wrong, just some surface features. This comes from someone (me) with decades’ experience in management and communications-related fields including public relations. All in all, your comment is provocative, useful, memorable. Thanks.

    • I am an engineer and thought I was quite eligible for a single guy when I was younger. However when I finished grad school I found out that women simply don’t want nerds under any circumstances. It was very discouraging: I’m reasonably tall, had some $, owned my own business, and did weight lifting & exercise but had 0 luck for many years.

      The only change is to pick up a single mom with many of some other guy’s kids who didn’t want them for whatever reason. The problem with that are the genetics: which I believed in well before I became ‘racially aware’.

      I even went to see a psychologist on what I was doing wrong to meet eligable women. However he merely said women have the same problems meeting guys.

        Correct. That is the experience of many men these days.

        I am able to have sex with some women but they are usually screwed up and I have to get rid of them.

        The last nurse I went out with told me she slept with some black dude that smacked her around. She also had HPV. She openly admitted she slept with a black dude like it was no big thing.

        The sad thing was she was a blonde hair and blue eyed woman who would be very attractive normally.

        I just couldn’t do it.

        They just seem to let themselves be used by tons of men and then decide they “want a good guy” after they hit the proverbial Wall.

        • I wouldn’t have done it either. I got married late, but my ironclad rules while I was single included “no coal-burners”, “no kids from previous relationships” and “nobody who has ever used hard drugs”.

        I am willing to bet however, that you are more perspicacious and less likely to be attracted to a woman who you perceive even subconsciously as a low-bred prowler regardless of other “attributes”. I further suspect that this is signaled to women. I can relate to your story.

    I wonder how the numbers would look if the incomes of professional athletes were excluded from the statistics?

    • Wouldn’t matter; the charts say “median” and not “mean”. A small number of weird exceptions can throw off a mean, but not a median.

        What they fail to show is the man-hours/capita of productivity by race. Let’s see *that* graphic.

    Another couple trillion in welfare and 50 years of affirmative action will surely close this gap.

  • David Feeney

    If you allow in 10,000 impoverished, illiterate people a day into a country of course the gap between the rich and poor will expand. If one were to stop allowing in poor people, deport some of the one’s on welfare and make an effort to import white millionaires, then the gap would shrink.

    But that would be raciss!

    Look at the facts, negroes, minorities and illegals have the government behind them–along with many in private industry who want to hire them over more qualified Whites—but, in reality, even with lowered standards, industry, which is based upon success and not inept incompetence as result of the lack of skills or desire to succeed with negroes….they only hire a few to window dress.

    Government on the other hand, prefers inept, uneducated, lazy and angry negroes because there is no requirement to perform at any competent level.

    The fact that there is a wealth gap is a direct result of the culture of negroes that despises education, competence, hard work and accountability, while blaming those who actually earn and create the wealth…..look at the White House and the Cabinet–as well as the negroes in Congress.

    In my experience, patients die both ways. From errors vs no treatment.

    Indians can be accepted to our medical schools with an IQ of 98. Whites must have at least 115.

  • John Barleycorn

    EVERY black family I see on the road or living in my town drive a better car than me . . .
    that’s got to say something about black disparity ..

  • Bubba Smith

    So where do the Jews, Hindus, and Muslims rank? Why no comparison of them to blacks? Because they are richer (and Hindus and Jews MUCH richer) than blacks! Hindus and Jews are richer than whites, in fact. Not a fact that Jews and Hindus was to start spearing around.

    The reason guys like the Hindu immigrant author of this story keep pitching black-on-white hate is to protect his tribe and help exterminate us. Get used to it. They will keep up this drumbeat of death until we are all Fergusonized. Meanwhile Obama has ordered Jeh Johnson to start opening up the immigration floodgates for Indians and Chinese in his recent amnesty directives. Yet rather than attack the Mocha Messiah for giving black jobs away to Mexicans, Indians and Chinese, Eric Holder sends them to our communities to loot and burn,

    They don’t have a diversity problem in those countries.

  • Jimmy Joseph

    The statistics are proving otherwise.

    The Northern White American population birth rate is only about 1.6.

    Anecdotal discussion is irrelevant.

    Marriage is at all time lows as well.
