I've commented on G&G before now that despite the Supremem Court rulings like Brown vs Board of Education that outlawed segregation, it seems that a significant percentage of American blacks don't wish to integrate and assimilate into the American culture. They promote invented, separatist holidays like Kwaanza. They encourage blacks to "buy black,"patronizing black businesses. Now I read this in The Week. The magazine has a column, "Only in America." This week, it had the following sniglet: A group of 19 black families has purchased 97 acres of land in Georgia on which to build a "pro black" city. Founder Ashley Scott says she and her co-investors see a need to build a "thriving safe haven for people of color." The new city,Scott says, will be a place where black people can "be a village again, be a tribe again." To me, this smacks not merely of separatism, but particularism. It's ironic, considering what Martin Luther King and the Freedom Riders did to end segregation 60 years ago, and what Black Lies Matter claim their organization is trying to do. On the one hand, there is a group that claims they want equality in fact, not merely in law, in the American culture. On the other, there's this group, and they are by no means an isolated example, that wants to live in the United States, but apart from it. They can't claim parallels with the Amish or the Hasidim, whose present-but-apart status is based on religion. They can't claim sovereign nation status as the Native Americans who were here first have done; but even they interact with with dominant culture. These yahoos are angling for a black homeland if you extend their thinking. If they want to live someplace where they can be a tribe again, with all the troubles and tribulations that devolution brings, buy a one-way ticket to Africa, renounce American citizenship, and leave. We'll be happy to see the back of them. They aren't acting like Americans. If they reject our culture, we should eject them. America is an idea, not an ethnicity!
