The first thing that popped into my mind when I read that a monster quake had rocked Port-au-Prince was, “How the fuck will they be able to tell the difference?”


Haiti after the earthquake.

The first thing that popped into my mind when I read that a monster quake had rocked Port-au-Prince was, “How the fuck will they be able to tell the difference?”

I mean, it’s Haiti, for fuck’s sake. They eat fly poop for all three meals and drink AIDS-tainted blood for an evening snack. What we call trash dumps, they call houses.

The media response has been typically hypocritical and vomit-inducing. Amid the outpouring of vigils and prayers and drum circles and outreach projects and relief efforts and humanitarian work and charity organizations and healing and cooperation and the inevitable flood of dirt-stupid, America-hostile refugees to our shores, I don’t see many people willing to actually move there.

Why is that?

And why, amid the sick choking fog of sanctimony, haven’t I heard a peep about the fact that Haiti fucking BECAME Haiti as a result of racial genocide?

I mean, the victims were French, so that tempers it quite a bit, but still—the Dusky Ones had themselves one of them there “slave uprisings” and murdered all the Ghost People. And then, before the corpses even began to smell, the nation regressed into a vile Third World toilet.

Racial tolerance had nothing to do with the Haitian Revolution. It was all about racial self-interest. The end result of this noble “uprising” was that, by some accounts, every remaining white was killed or exiled by 1805. An aide to Jean-Jacques Dessalines, first ruler of an independent, honky-free Haiti, wrote, “For our declaration of independence, we should have the skin of a white man for parchment, his skull for an inkwell, his blood for ink, and a bayonet for a pen!”

Danny Glover has made a movie about this noble racial revolution. Look for it in theaters near you this year. I suspect he’ll play down the white-skulls-for-inkwells angle.

As much as I hate to admit it, I’m of French ancestry. To make matters worse, the French part of my bloodline comes by way of Canada.

I believe Carl Jung was onto something when he spoke of a “collective unconscious,” and I also believe the “racists” are onto something when they speak of things such as “tribal instinct” and “genetic memory.” Therefore, I think it’s entirely natural for a black dude living in Brooklyn in 2010 to feel aggrieved about the indignities suffered by his distant ancestral brethren in Haiti before the slaves came to their senses and slaughtered all the whites.

And by the same reasoning, I think it’s entirely natural for a white dude of French ancestry living in Georgia in 2010 to feel aggrieved about the slaughter of my distant ancestral brethren in Haiti.

In this conflict, I’m going to take the French side, not the Haitian one.

So, Haiti, how did things work out once you snuffed all the Frogs? How’s that voodoo been working out for you guys? How’s postcolonial life been treatin’ ya? Per-capita income is a smooth $790 a year, an estimated 300,000 children are enslaved, and on average you can expect to live nearly two decades less than if you decided to sail to America and live among all that stinking white oppression.

You can prattle like a Sociology 101 student about racism and capitalism and colonialism, but a truth that’s deadlier than AIDS is that postcolonial China and post-Diaspora Israel seem to be doing A-OK, while no one has ever been able to show me a postcolonial majority-black country that isn’t a violence-wracked, disease-ridden, poverty-stricken dumpster. I’d like to see one, actually—it’s just that I haven’t.

Remember Liberia, created after the Civil War to give ex-slaves a chance to return to Mother Africa and build a mighty nation free of the white man’s oppression? So wha’happen’? Did the brothers wind up workin’ it out in Liberia? Let’s see: Per-capita income there is $215 bucks a year, average life expectancy is 45, they’ve been snuffing each other in the hundreds of thousands with their OWN civil wars, and—most ironic of all—conditions are so utterly destitute that untold thousands of Liberian refugees are now living back in the Evil United States whence their ancestors fled.

You can call me a racist—because you’re predictable—but that word is a social construct and has absolutely no meaning for me personally. I’d suggest you all worry a lot less about “right” and “wrong” and instead focus on “true” and “false.” And the truth is, none of you are moving to Haiti any time soon.

There’s a word for what happens when you kill all the crackers. That word is “Haiti.” Don’t be Haitin’ on me for saying it.


Haiti before the earthquake.

    I hate to be “predictable” but you’re unbelievably fucking retarded.

    fucking awesome.

    not saying im in 100% agreement with the entire diatribe, but thats an interesting read.

  4. Joey says:

    Hey fuck you. Africa’s my favorite country.

  5. well this is why so many third world people are so done with whites. CHina INVESTS in Africa and both of them are making a killing. in the western white man’s burden version, you either were a slave or you could not particpate in global capitalism.

    why couldn’t black people have been allowed to come to, say, the united states, of their own volition and been paid for their work? like anybody else?

    and then on top of it after you sensibly drove the slavemaster out using whatever means you had, you get made fun of by the ancestors of the slavemaster.

    ” I suspect he’ll play down the white-skulls-for-inkwells angle.”

    why should he? he should play it up and play up the “angle” about the slaves who were thrown overboard for the crime of getting sick during the voyage to the western hemisphere.

    Er, for the record whites didn’t invent slavery, they ended it. Plenty of Africans were sad to see it go.

  8. BJ- there was alot of grumbling when Moses led the israelites out of Egypt too

  9. yawn says:

    fuck you for being predictable enough to turn a natural disaster into an excuse for bullshit, pseudo-intellectual tirades.

    you’re so cool for being able to say something non-pc about tens of thousands of people dying in an impoverished island nation.

    lame.

  10. foul says:

    WORD! I don’t blame you for taking your european brethrens side… thats cool, thats what we all do, its nature but
    one “truth” is that you european fucks are responsible for almost every mass genocide on this planet..you guys have wiped out whole cultures! plus responsible for everything by bringing the slaves there in the first place… you couldnt just live peacefully and let everyone stay as they were, lazy fucks that you are. . so fuck it, whats done is done.
    and HELL NO I would NEVER live in Haiti or any shit hole country today .. What are we gonna do? move to third world countries and declare war on the white people? HAHA. we are way smarter that that.. We’re gonna fuck all your daughters , and get in your asses so bad.. gonna dilute that white shit SO MUCH the only pure whites left will be in the fuckin woods in geogia or something. Look how much we have done already.. and that is WITH racist motherfuckers literally designing shit to keep people of color in their place in this country. We’re still getting all up in your kids’ assholes. HAHA. shit comes and goes , you’re just lucky you’re alive now and on the winning team. RIP to all the people in Haiti

    Whoda thunk ex-slaves could be so angry!

    Perhaps they should have taken a lesson from the Jim Goad school of anger management. Then they could have just kicked the shit out of their girlfriends and let their ex-French slavemasters make wine in peace.

    You’re not as stupid as Pat Robertson, friend, but you’re getting there.

    I wonder if you would have the balls to comment like this about 9/11 just after the fact? I mean US ancestors contributed to cultural genocide, would you bring that up to a readership who just saw their families killed? Fox News for the Williamsburg ingnoramous wondering whether it will be soy latte or a tattoo of one today.

  16. Peterpaul says:

    Steven Glass,

    Actually, the Africans riot regularly against the Chinese (aka PRC Governemnt) run businesses, like mines, over their slavery like conditions.

  17. T.T. says:

    I notice a curious absence of people coming forth with examples of postcolonial black-run nations that aren’t horrid shitholes and in demonstrably worse condition than when whitey was routed.

    Politically incorrect? Please! This article is absolutely correct until you start coughing up some examples.

  18. Real french says:

    Goad, your French-Canadian inbred indian-raping drunken fur trapper white trash ancestors, I can almost guarantee it 1000%, did not see action in the Haitian revolution. So you can rest easy.

    As someone whose ancestors did actually fight there (and on the rebel side during the American revolution, p.s.) I can say that we had the utter humiliation of having our imperial army routed by a bunch of recalcitrant slaves COMING TO US, times a million. We bled that island dry for hundreds of years. As for what happened after that, I’m sure that Haiti being the first independent majority black republic in the world, drawing the hatred of the world’s most powerful empires, and oh by the way being invaded by the US a couple of times, has nothing to do with how fucked it is. Not to mention OH HURRICANES AND EARTHQUAKES which have something to do with God’s hatred of the black race I suppose?

    If I had your face in front of me I would take a shit on it.

  19. fudge says:

    Let’s just suspend reality and basic human deceny for a moment and say yes Jim Goad, the Haitians who had the nerve to stage an uprising againt their french slaveowners were dicks who doomed their people and have now gotten what was coming to them. Sure. Okay. You’re a twat.

    What I really don’t get is how in the fuckity fuck can you argue it’s wrong to send aid and $ to a country but not want to live there? The reason aid is sent to Haiti in the first place is because it’s like the sixth circle of hell. We should commit to live in every area we have the nerve to donate our hard earned happy hour money to? NAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

  20. Peterpaul- perhaps, but they still have much better numbers than they did during the slavery day in terms of GDP unemployemnt and the like.

    and they can not work if they don’t want to

  21. comic book guy... says:

    “Politically incorrect? Please! This article is absolutely correct until you start coughing up some examples.”

    You’re asking the wrong question, presumably because you’re a bovine dipshit. The correct question is: What is a country populated by white or Asian peoples that’s suffered the type of protracted, systematic oppression Haiti has and emerged as a glimmering wonderland? Because that’s the point of this article, right? That black people are inherently prone to fucking things up?

    Jim Goad offered up China and Israel as examples, which is fucking idiotic and shows a weak grasp of reality and history.

  22. chico says:

    “I can say that we had the utter humiliation of having our imperial army routed by a bunch of recalcitrant slaves COMING TO US, times a million.”

    Your ancestors sound like a bunch of pussies.

  23. moosle says:

    T.T., is the baseline for the post-colonial nations that they are better off than the moment whitey left them, or better off than when whitey came in and took the best land, killed all the best leaders and sent millions off on slave galleys in the first place?

  24. Real french says:

    Confucius say, He who answer question with more question is big homo.

  26. T.T. says:

    From the looks of things, yeah, black people are prone to fucking things up. Name one place where life expectancy and average income increased once they took charge.

  27. stoops says:

    you really know how to go for page hits, don’t you?

    anyway, all this talk of ‘show me a successful democratic free-market black run country’ is a crock of shit. no, there certainly is not a black-run country as successful as a first world northern nation at the moment. but when one is talking about the relative successes and failures of entire nations/peoples/continents it is necessary to take the long view. civilizations rise and fall, and if you think we in the west are going to be at the top of the heap forever, well–i’m assuming you’re not that dumb.

    good article, you’re always fun to read–but let’s be honest here–your ‘edgy angry whitey speaking the truth’ shtick is so predictable i can set my fucking watch by it.

  28. comic book guy... says:

    “From the looks of things, yeah, black people are prone to fucking things up. Name one place where life expectancy and average income increased once they took charge.”

    Oh, man, weren’t you the bitch just bitching at everyone for dodging the question? To quote Jim Goad: ANSWER ME! What is a country populated by white or Asian peoples that’s suffered the type of protracted, systematic oppression Haiti has and emerged as a glimmering wonderland?

  29. dewd says:

    From where I’m sitting, Georgia seems like a pretty bad shithole full of redneck assholes. So, it’s all relative.

  30. Bolognialism says:

    Isn’t it a shithole because the white devil colonialised it in the first place? I’m sure it was full of indigenous people that took care of the island for thousands of years(just like all the other islands in the Carribean Basin),but were wiped out to bring in colonialism and slaves. The by product, a “shithole country” as you say, is the European’s fault. Alot of the world’s problems can be blamed on European expansion.

    i guess i can sort of agree with this. black people countries suck ass, and for the most part yes, they were much better off being ruled by the white man. but of course, as things are going now, its the west and white-boy countries which are on the decline, we cant even have babies anymore because we are so materialistic and political correct and retarded. the west has lost all of its balls minus people like jim goad, who no one gives a shit about anyways.

  37. stgo says:

    OK, here’s a question:

    Why are the Arabic countries of North Africa (Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Algeria etc) generally more stable, prosperous and advanced than any other part of Africa ( excluding RSA)? They both have long histories of exploitation at the hands of occupying European powers, yet the Arab countries have managed to build decent societies since gaining their independence. Sure, they may not have the best track-record when it comes to democracy or human rights, but nobody is starving or dying of AIDS epidemics?

    Is that racist of me?

    Oh c’mon, a single factor does not an arguement make. Now you’re the one who’s simplifying history.

    You know what countries without convenient water trade routes do? They build roads! Works just as well in Europe, South America, Asia or anywhere else. And what about the vast natural resources that Africa has to exploit: diamonds, minerals, lumber, hydro? Surely those must count for something.

    Egypt?? Come on. The only reason why they are stable is because they got the luck of being near the Suez and directly across from Israel. The US has provided Egypt with $1.3 billion a year in military aid since 1979, and an average of $815 million a year in economic assistance. Basically, if you stop hatin’ on Israel, we’ll give you money. Your friends, the USA :)

    How much is the US giving to Haiti a year????

    And Israel???Now we know you’re an idiot. Free land, and the ability to do whatever they want. For a people from the Middle east, they seem to be quite white. Oh yes, and more free money. Since the 1970s, Israel has been the top recipient of U.S. foreign aid, and gets about 3 billion a year. Plus, they get all the free tech(nuclear+military) info they need to sell onto other countries.

    Hehehe…comparing Haiti to Israel, what a fucking joke. JIM GOAD DOUCHE OF 2010.

  58. JSW says:

    “IRELAND is equal to Haiti? Jesus Christ. You’re not joking? That’s your real answer? Do you know ANYTHING about the history of Haiti?”

    Do you know anything about the history of Ireland? They were starved potato-farming serfs–when they weren’t cannon fodder for English wars–until the 20th century. It was a third world country until the 1970s.

    It’s been conquered and re-conquered by the Normans, Tudors, Cromwell, William of Orange, &c. Cromwell managed to wipe out a quarter of the population. There was failed war of independence in the 18th century, which came after a mid-century potato famine that killed a quarter of the population. Then there was the potato famine everyone has heard about in the mid-19th century, and the population dropped by a quarter again (admittedly lots of migration). Meanwhile they were conscripted for English wars all across the Continent. Independence was all fine and dandy, except for the fact it took a war against the Brits, then a civil war. Then came all the IRA nonsense for 70 years. And they were still farming dirt until the 1970s.

    All that ends with a tech boom in the 1990s. Not bad for a buncha dirty drunken micks. Seems to me they’ve done with longer periods of oppression, and fewer years of independence than Haiti, but still haven’t done so poorly.

    Let’s be honest… In pre-colonial sub-Saharan Africa (where blacks come from) there is not one recorded instance of any group of people creating a written language, any sort of infrastructure (aside from mud-huts), or any post-stone age tool. They never even got around to domesticating animals. They lived for millenia in a semi-retarded and illiterate society. History serves as a clear indication that the problems that the blacks of the world face can’t be entirely attributed to the West.

  64. Maxipad says:

    Now that was funny. Fuckin Jimmy Goat!

  65. tommy gun says:

    from the notoriously racist Guardian UK newspaper:

    “Haiti has had slavery, revolution, debt, deforestation, corruption, exploitation and violence,” says Alex von Tunzelmann, a historian and writer currently working on a book about the country and its near neighbours, the Dominican Republic and Cuba. “Now it has poverty, illiteracy, overcrowding, no infrastructure, environmental disaster and large areas without the rule of law. And that was before the earthquake. It sounds a terrible cliche, but it really is a perfect storm. This is a catastrophe beyond our worst imagination.”

    It needn’t, though, have been like this. In the 18th century, under French rule, Haiti – then called Saint-Domingue – was the Pearl of the Antilles, one of the richest islands in France’s empire (though 800,000-odd African slaves who produced that wealth saw precious little of it). In the 1780s, Haiti exported 60% of all the coffee and 40% of all the sugar consumed in Europe: more than all of Britain’s West Indian colonies combined. It subsequently became the first independent nation in Latin America, and remains the world’s oldest black republic and the second-oldest republic in the western hemisphere after the United States. So what went wrong?”

  66. tommy gun says:

    of course this is what Jim Goad’s civilized ancestors were up to as well:

    For nearly a decade in the late 18th century, Haiti accounted for more than one-third of the entire Atlantic slave trade. Conditions for these men and women were atrocious; the average life expectancy for a slave on Haiti was 21 years. Abuse was dreadful, and routine: “Have they not hung up men with heads downward, drowned them in sacks, crucified them on planks, buried them alive, crushed them in mortars?” wrote one former slave some time later. “Have they not forced them to eat excrement? Have they not thrown them into boiling cauldrons of cane syrup? Have they not put men and women inside barrels studded with spikes and rolled them down mountainsides into the abyss?”

  67. Matt- right thats what robertson said. it can be extended to the wwhole region. why are people in the bahamas so happy and peopel in cuba so miserable?

  68. dacksworth says:

    Why do some people feel such a need to pull this shit when human tragedies occur? Oddly, this didn’t even support a real racist or politically-motivated agenda, it just served to make people go “Wow! This guy doesn’t feel the same pain for Haiti that the rest of us do. He’s telling HIS side, no matter how many people it rubs the wrong way!” It’s not a real opinion, it’s just cowardly soapboxing.

    His argument overlooks the fact that the Haitian uprising was less of a racial matter and more of “I don’t care what colour your skin is, you control a power structure based on slavery, and I happen to be a slave, so get the fuck out of my country” matter. You would probably chalk it up to identity politics if you were a Sciology 101 student. Also, saying things like “they eat fly poop for all three meals and drink AIDS-tainted blood for an evening snack” hardly lends to your credibility (or humanity).

    I’ll go out on a limb and state that this person has probably never suffered the indigities of true poverty (percieved or otherwise), true oppression, or true helplessness. Since he can’t relate, he belittles the situation. For me, his views on post-colonialism and racism in Africa and the Caribbean really don’t hold much water, no matter how many long-dead Swiss psychiatrists he reads.

    It’s all quite pathetic, really.

  69. NATE says:

  71. What’s more controversial then shit talking an issue as sensitive as recent and ongoing human disaster? BONUS POINTS FOR THE RACIAL TIDBITS!
    This is what the average nut-picker would commonly refer to as ‘reactionary-writing’, fall for it and die.

    Admit it mate, the only reason you’ve written this is to be ‘TABOO’ and shit, and not to actually bring up any thing to the table.

    Nobody’s asking you to give a fuck about Haiti or Haitians (and if they are, tell them to fuck off, cause that’s not how you roll) but shutting up at the right moment could’ve made a grave difference.

  72. Drippy dog dix and cum bubbles or something says:

    endlessly rebelling against the oppressions of a PC establishment that barely exists anymore.

    this is profoundly juvenile; jim goad is basically the smartest, angry kid in his 8th grade class. his/gavin’s sensibilities and aesthetics are remarkably dated and out of touch.

    Come, come, people…

    Haiti staged the first and only completely successful slave rebellion in history.

    They haven’t been successful at anything since, but for fuck’s sake, it’s only been 205 years.

  81. TT- well if you are a black person in the US it’s good that your ancestors were brought here because america is better than africa.

    I’m not disputing that. I’m saying that there were other ways a black person could have come here rather than slavery.

    I think there are other choices for black people other than slavery or anarchy and tribalism.

    and again, if anyone wants to see a island of happy rich black people go the bahamas. the cab drivers make six figues. there’s no income tax. we could learn alot from them.

  82. stoops says:

    hey T.T., they had a fucking earthquake. earthquakes in and of themselves have more to do with geology and plate tectonics than they do with twats arguing about race on a fucking blog. goad can think whatever he wants–i really don’t give a shit–but using an earthquake to diss the socio-economic state of a nation is like looking at the remnants of a trailer park in buttfuck, usa after a twister hits and proceeding to comment on the complete fucking idiocy and genetic degeneracy of its inhabitants.

  83. JB says:

    Hey “the worst hitler” (by the way, great name, dickhead),

    In response to your “no written language, animal husbandry, etc.” argument, go read Guns, Germs, and Steel. It offers a very thorough and convincing non-racial explanation for the different rates of cultural development in different parts of the world. Although I’m guessing you’re more comfortable being a racist asshole than, you know, picking up a book and learning something. Fuckin prick.

  85. dewd says:

    the reason why people like “the worst hitler” and goad shouldn’t just be left alone to spout their cute little thoughts is that on top of being total fuckwads, they state as facts shit that is just wrong.

    Try googling Futa Jalon, Timbuktu, Great Zimbabwe, or Lalibela, fucknut. Africa had civilization prior to and contiguous to European colonialism. Asshole.

  86. Voice of Reason says:

    I took your suggestion, and here’s what I discovered:

    Timbuktu was not sub-Saharan.

    Futa Jalon first seemed to experience a trace of civilization after being colonized by Muslims in the 1700s or so.

    Lalibela got a taste of civilization from the Christians around 1200 AD.

    Great Zimbabwe, well, they built some giant mud walls. Wow! The elites lived inside of the mud walls, and the great masses were forced to live outside them.

    and it’s suuuuper easy to just snap out of a fucked economy into a brilliant one; not to mention how totally inviting and awesome the ‘whitey countries’ are, and not economcially patronizing in the slightest? big lols over here

    Most sub-Saharan areas had absolutely no “infrastructure” before whitey came along, nor even the concept of what constitutes a “country.”

    Germany was bombed to dust in WWII, and they’re once again one of the world’s strongest economies. Same goes for Japan. Places such as Haiti and Liberia have no excuse besides the fact that, by and large, their citizens are borderline retarded.

  99. Taeil says:

    People are overtly concerned about the racial implications on why Haiti is a shit hole. I think that it’s the result of blaming “the white man” for all their problems in the past 200 years instead of getting with the program. The idea that colonialism breeds failed states is a myth and the liberal agenda perpetuates even worse conditions.

    First of all, after killing every white person on that island Haitians sort of fucked up killing all the people who ALSO provided infrastructure and money.

    I’m sorry, but if you were to argue you why Haiti is a shithole even before the quake they kinda have to blame themselves. Hopefully after they clear the rubble someone will rise to power (and is also US friendly) and create a stabilized government along with trade plans with US businesses.

    By the way, again if you were to really want to shit on Jim Goad on being a racist. Consider the face he lives in freakin’ Atlanta. Blacks make up the largest demographic in that city alone. If he really hated black people, wouldn’t you think he’d be in Idaho or something?

    In 1937 Dominican dictator Rafael Trujillo,[23] in an event known as the Parsley Massacre, ordered the Army to kill Haitians living on the Dominican side of the border.[24] He developed a uniquely Dominican policy of racial discrimination, Antihaitianismo (“anti-Haitianism”), targeting the mostly-black inhabitants of his neighboring country.

    the continuous harping of you and your ‘team’ is not shocking, new, nor is it some blinding revelation to most of us with brains and the ability to think for ourselves.

Because, since Jared Diamond considers other factors besides race and genetics, he’s an idiot and a bullshit artist. Only Jim Goad, with his exclusive, obsessive focus on race, will give you the real deal.

At least now they have total control over their own poverty. There’s gotta be something, I don’t know, “empowering” about that freedom. And who’s to say that the omnipresent, all powerful global culture isn’t working OT to keep Haiti and all the other black nations in the dregs? Just because the media is hyper-sympathetic doesn’t mean that the corporations who own the media and rule the world don’t fucking hate blacks and are completely uncooperative/stingy/shady in their dealings with them.

Stephen Gould was the one that put this movement into motion, and he was never taken all that seriously in the academic world. They keep touting the idea that no matter how many other thousands of phenotypes that the collective’s environment changes, intelligence can’t be one of them.

That will be during the “anti-racist” phase of research for my race book. I’m still mired in the “Jew” phase of research.

    Comparisons to Pat Robertson are silly because Pat claims the Haitians brought it on themselves. All I’m saying is that the earthquake’s not going to make much of a difference. I used the same picture twice up there. It is, of course, from before the earthquake.

    And I don’t remember saying that blacks are incapable of self-governance. I stated that I’d like to see it, but the evidence isn’t, you know, umm, really that compelling.

  117. stoops says:

    @sexy hitler; intelligence is very rare, regardless of race. the mass of humanity, black, white, yellow, red, and brown, is made up of people incapable of using the grey lump between their ears. the history of humanity and the history of stupidity go hand in hand.
    we are certainly NOT all equal. however, just as stupidity cuts across racial lines, so does intelligence. the ideas that have empowered western civilization spring from a very fucking small pool of talent, and a tremendous amount of blood has been shed to establish these ideas in reality.

    christ, man…do you spend your time sipping tea with caucasian geniuses somewhere? have you never brushed shoulders with the heaving masses of dim-witted, slack-jawed white folks slumped in front of television sets from the flyover states to the canadian prairies to the housing estates of anywhere, u.k.? what fucking planet do you live on?

  118. Banker says:

    Jim Goad, you are very correct that the whites run things better, but you have to remember that only the “right kind” of whites are the ones who make this world operate. White people of your background, Southerners, are essentially the Haitians of this country, basically just being poor and economically invaluable with low IQs. I noticed once the Southern whites were in charge of themselves post revolution, i.e. the Antebellum period, you basically spent the next hundred years loosing all the teeth in your head and forgetting how to talk in proper English. The wealth and prosperity of this country was created by the hard work and good vision of Northeastern industrialists like the Rockefellers, Pells, and these days Jewish financiers. Walking around the deep south these days is to encounter a race of really very backwards people, mostly overweight and very uneducated, who like to blame their problems on distant abstractions like “those Jews in New York.” Sound familiar? What’s the difference between Haiti and Georgia, anyway?

    does this site get paid by the comment, like soulja boy’s youtube account? if so, hopefully this thread will help the site get rid of those unsightly banner ads.

    hey jim goad, like robertson, you DID insinuate that the haitians brought it on themselves, once the “snuffed out all the Frogs”. your entire piece argues that the black haitian population bought the hellhole their country was before the earthquake, with a revolution against their white masters hundreds of years ago. can you really hold that against a group of people who watched their families massacred for decades? is being the richest country in the caribbean worth the atrocities their white masters perpetrated? i have a feeling you would say “yes”, because what can one say in the face of such tenacious cynicism?

    having lived in the bahamas my entire life, i can tell you from experience that we have our share of problems with poverty and violence, same as georgia, and that we have been governed by almost exclusively blacks since our independence. but we are hardly a “dumpster”, same as the majority of caribbean nations. and unlike egypt and israel, we haven’t gotten the benefit of hundreds of millions of dollars in aid from the states in order to bring our countries up.

    like most of the people who visit this site frequently, i enjoy having my buttons pushed and views challenged, which something you can do deftly (i have bought the collected first three issues of “answer me!”, which continues to both outrage and amuse me) however with this post, you are attempting to appeal to a prejudice that simply does not exist in most people anymore, least of all the demographic of this site. i don’t think for a moment that you write to please anyone, but do you at least write to enlighten? i don’t believe you can like this.

  132. Jim Goad says:

    @”Hey jim goad, like robertson, you DID insinuate that the haitians brought it on themselves, ”

    When I said “it,” I was referring to “the earthquake.” Nothing I said implied they brought the earthquake on themselves.

    Also: I live in Georgia. I’m from Philly. I wrote a whole book about stereotypes regarding Southerners. I’ve noticed a tendency for many people who point out how the South lags behind the rest of the USA on many quality-of-life indices ALWAYS neglect the fact that the South has a MUCH HIGHER PERCENTAGE OF BLACKS than the rest of the USA. So when you dis “the South,” remember that you’re dissing the blackest part of the country.

    I would still rather live in the most ass-backwards part of the American South than in Haiti. But that’s just me…and, if they’re honest, I’d estimate roughly 99% to 100% of the commenters on here. Show me anywhere in Georgia that looks remotely as bad as that picture of Haiti up there.

    What’s the difference between Georgia and Haiti? First off, Haiti’s population is 90-95% black, while Georgia’s is around 30%. (My zip code is about 87% black, and we get along fine.)

    What else is different? Life expectancy’s about two decades longer here. Average per-capita income is about, oh, only FORTY-THREE TIMES what it is in Haiti. Haiti’s per-capita murder rate is roughly twice as high as Georgia’s. And with a population almost numerically identical to that of Haiti’s, we don’t have 300,000 fucking child slaves, a point you all have carefully sidestepped.

    Why are you still indignant about a Haitian slavery system that ended more than two centuries ago but absolutely silent about slavery that’s being practiced in Haiti today, O, ye enlightened ones? Are you having that much emotional trouble coming to grips with the idea that blacks can be oppressors, too?

  133. stoops says:

    um, no. blacks can be oppressors, and though haiti is beautiful, it is rather shitty.
    but it is a little disingenuous of you to write in your typical incendiary style and then be all ‘huh? wah?’ when the liberals/lefties get choked…pointing at a place like haiti and saying ‘what a pile of shit! what shitty people!’ does not register too highly on the richter scale of inventiveness.
    liberal baiting may be great sport, but it’s not that hard to do…and seeking solutions to the myriad problems of a place like haiti requires a little more in depth analysis than the usual pointing and sniggering.
    but i suppose the search for solutions is not really your thing.

    Guns, Germs, and Steel isn’t pseudo-science or pop-science. This isn’t Freakonomics or The Tipping Point or The World Is Flat. It’s a really dense, difficult to read, exhaustively expounded theory that goes into minute details about indigenous plant and animal life, archaelogical methods, virus pathology, soil fertility, language development, and so on. It really covers almost every base and does so pretty convincingly. And it won the Pulitzer, which I think lends it a little credibility.

    It just doesn’t matter how stupid you think black people are for killing whites or forcing them out of a country. It doesn’t matter at all! I don’t have a heart for the politics of a country, I have a heart for it’s people. I may not want to move to Haiti (p.s.

    “When I said “it,” I was referring to “the earthquake.” Nothing I said implied they brought the earthquake on themselves.”

    -of course you don’t believe that haiti “caused” their earthquake as part of some contract with satan. but you still share a similar thesis with pat. on his show, robertson said that haiti’s constant turmoil BEFORE THE EARTHQUAKE was a result of a deal with the devil to get the french out. once that was done, they became “cursed”. the earthquake was a part of this. both you and robertson are saying that haiti is a blighted country, the difference is that robertson’s curse refers to a spiritual sickness that can be lifted. you seem to believe that haitians are “cursed” to live in ignominy and death simply because they are a majority black country. pat’s curse was literal, yours metaphorical.

    “I would still rather live in the most ass-backwards part of the American South than in Haiti.”

    -most people would not want to live in a warzone, yes. but you asked for examples of post colonial countries with a black majority that aren’t falling to pieces, and were given several.

    since the 80s and live-aid and AIDS, media outlets have had a much sharper focus on suffering “foreigners” than any time prior. this generation has grown up saturated with images of failing majority black countries, so i could understand if this piece were written by a guy of twenty. but a middle aged man?

    Not a single person who whines about this article being “fucked-up” has made a whisper about the fact that before the earthquake, Haiti had 300,000 child slaves.

    Not sure how you guys navigate the world, but from where I sit, 300,000 child slaves is a lot more fucked-up than this article.

  153. longtime goadfan, a little let down says:

    While this piece doesn’t have the nuance and humor of Jim Goad’s usual writing and feels a bit tossed off in order to capitalize on a chance to be “shocking”, I have to laugh at all the hysterical hipsters here. Sure, life was probably already horrible enough for the average Haitian and I’m not going to say anybody brought anything on themselves because I wasn’t there, but to wax sanctimonious because a known button-pusher writes an oh-so-scandalous screed about the disaster du jour is to show absolutely no self-awareness. NYC hipsters are already caricatures, so now you’re coming to a website apparently made for them and calling Jim Goad racist? Bravo, tools!

    As for JG, you’re living in a city which has been self-governed by Negros for the past 30 or so years. I guess it’s doing alright, but I don’t live there anymore, and that picture of Haiti you posted looks a lot like the corner of Boulevard and Ponce de Leon circa 1995, to me. Also, why does everybody hate the French? I can understand hatred of the English, but hating France is soooo 2002. And China and Israel are doing fine because they’re a hive society and the nerve center of the ZOG, respectively. I shouldn’t have had to point that out to you.

    One more thing: If the Nate who keeps chiming in every 20 comments or so to basically say “You guys don’t understand Jim like I do!” is the same Nate from the Netjerk Lounge, thanks for making it suck far more than it used to.

    @former goadfan:
    absolutely agreed. getting angry about this blog post only makes one look like a “hipster,” “liberal” stooge, exactly the sort of reaction goad and his debate-club fanboys want. and jim goad has fallen off big time if this is all he has left to do.

  158. q says:

    speaking only for myself, i’m really not offended by this. i’m more disappointed that the guy who wrote the redneck manifesto would lower himself to writing it.

    i don’t believe in everyone being “equal.” does anyone? i believe in equal treatment under the law, generally, that’s a completely different thing. i definitely don’t think blacks are morally superior.

    goad and gavin are baiting a “liberal, pc, guilty white” establishment that doesn’t really seem to exist anymore, as a collective force. or did i sleep through kucinich’s inauguration speech? obama won because bush was incompetent and the economy tanked, and he’s currently getting buried in the backlash. harry reid is getting pounded in his re-election bid, for reasons having nothing whatsofuckingever to do with his “negro” comments. goad was right when you said it’s about money, not race. so why focus so tightly on race now? it’s a sideshow.

    maybe i’m wrong, deluded by the liberals. maybe goad’s world-series-of-race thesis is factually airtight, and he’s stuck here sparing with “hipsters” because of a big, politically correct conspiracy. or maybe he just can’t debate anyone because he’s so full of himself.

    when the blacks and browns call for my head, i’ll be sure to suit up and fight for my right to be white. as of yet, i don’t see it happening, and i don’t feel particularly guilty, just sad that a bunch of people died because of rotten luck. maybe, when goad’s epic race book comes out, i’ll see the light and regret my misplaced compassion.

    as of now, looking at this post, and how you timed it, i now think of jim goad as a childish provocateur. i’d respect him if you could man up and admit that he posted this just to piss in the punch.

    but, wait… he doesn’t care what we think. he’s superior. he only cares about the truth. and he’s shocked, shocked that we would let our feelings get hurt and accept this obvious invitation to a fight.

    right.

    “Remember Liberia, created after the Civil War to give ex-slaves a chance to return to Mother Africa and build a mighty nation free of the white man’s oppression?”

    No, I remember Liberia, created in the 1820s and 30s by escaped slaves & abolitionists and which did pretty well until its left-leaning President was overthrown by the Reagan-loving head of the army in the early 80s. Or maybe you were referring to the English Civil War?

    Not sure which is more dispiriting, watching your once-legendary research skills go down the tube, or realizing you’ve actually become a racist.

    Bye.

  161. factcheck says:

    “I think that it’s the result of blaming “the white man” for all their problems in the past 200 years instead of getting with the program. The idea that colonialism breeds failed states is a myth and the liberal agenda perpetuates even worse conditions.”

    PS: If either you or Goad has any evidence of Haiti blaming “the white man” for its problems prior to the mid-1920s American occupation of the country, I’d be interested in seeing it.

  162. Jim Goad says:

    Thank you, factcheck, for pointing out my mistake about when Liberia was founded. For years I was under the impression that Liberia’s creation coincided with the Civil War’s end, but I should have double-checked it before letting the article go live. Still, my chronological error doesn’t undermine the dark irony that the USA is now harboring Liberian refugees.

    And besides citing a violently anti-white comment from one of the Haitian Revolution’s higher-ups circa 1805, I didn’t say anything about Haiti “blaming the white man” for its problems, so you’re barking at the wrong “racist” on that count. And it doesn’t change the fact that Haiti was established as a result of genocide. And it especially doesn’t alter the fact that after the slaves spilled all the white blood, the section of Hispaniola that became Haiti went from being one of the richest parts of the New World to the poorest and most chaotic.

    Whether it’s “racist” or not, that tends to be the trend when places shift to black-majority rule. That seems to be the pattern, whether or not it’s too ugly for some people to ponder. For all the cloying homilies American media outlets have paid to the end of apartheid in South Africa, you don’t hear much about how South Africa suddenly has the world’s highest murder rate and the dating scene is an all-you-can-eat Rape Buffet.

    So I see a world where in most cases, conditions get measurably worse when “the white man” leaves or is driven out. And yet a lot of people, a comically high percentage of them white, struggle to find a way to blame whites for that, too, which makes absolutely no sense. When the “cause” of the problem is removed from the equation and the problem gets worse, maybe you’re looking at the wrong problem.

  163. Taeil says:

    Again, even Jim’s pulling out the race card kinda screws over the argument where I am trying to get at. Haiti is a shit hole and it’s a the liberals are as guilty as the right trying to bring race into the topic on WHY Haiti is a failed state even before the quake.

    And first of all, the fact the country was founded on genocide is a mute point. The United States was founded on genocide. So I’m not gonna gripe about the history of Haiti. I just think people shouldn’t blame white Western/European foreign policy either on why it is a shitty place. Apparently the culture does not seem to adapt very well to capitalism.

    It doesn’t matter. We are already sending thousands of dollars in aid and there’s already a plan for nation building. Things are already set in motion for Haiti to suppose to be a lot less shitty even before the quake.

Look at his twitter posts: nonsense about Santa Claus’ penis mixed in with his self-concious racist screeds, hardly tea party material there. I think if it were 10 years ago and I was back in college I would find this diatribe a lot more compelling given the fatigue of being in an overwhelming lefty (student and prof) environment which kinda rendered debate moot, if not comical at times. Now in the workaday world it’s pretty easy to see how narcissistic and shallow this author is absent any true PC Establishment holding him back (as others have pointed out above). Ya’ll are only as edgy as your surroundings allow, whether its NYC or the ATL, so to all of you “non-liberals” who read and post here, grow up: when push comes to shove your values and lifestyle is as “blue state” as it comes.

    What You’re Not Hearing about Haiti (But Should Be)
    by Carl Lindskoog
    In the hours following Haiti’s devastating earthquake, CNN, the New York Times and other major news sources adopted a common interpretation for the severe destruction: the 7.0 earthquake was so devastating because it struck an urban area that was extremely over-populated and extremely poor. Houses “built on top of each other” and constructed by the poor people themselves made for a fragile city. And the country’s many years of underdevelopment and political turmoil made the Haitian government ill-prepared to respond to such a disaster.

    True enough. But that’s not the whole story. What’s missing is any explanation of why there are so many Haitians living in and around Port-au-Prince and why so many of them are forced to survive on so little. Indeed, even when an explanation is ventured, it is often outrageously false such as a former U.S. diplomat’s testimony on CNN that Port-au-Prince’s overpopulation was due to the fact that Haitians, like most Third World people, know nothing of birth control.

    It may startle news-hungry Americans to learn that these conditions the American media correctly attributes to magnifying the impact of this tremendous disaster were largely the product of American policies and an American-led development model.

    From 1957-1971 Haitians lived under the dark shadow of “Papa Doc” Duvalier, a brutal dictator who enjoyed U.S. backing because he was seen by Americans as a reliable anti-Communist. After his death, Duvalier’s son, Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” became President-for-life at the age of 19 and he ruled Haiti until he was finally overthrown in 1986. It was in the 1970s and 1980s that Baby Doc and the United States government and business community worked together to put Haiti and Haiti’s capitol city on track to become what it was on January 12, 2010.

    After the coronation of Baby Doc, American planners inside and outside the U.S. government initiated their plan to transform Haiti into the “Taiwan of the Caribbean.” This small, poor country situated conveniently close to the United States was instructed to abandon its agricultural past and develop a robust, export-oriented manufacturing sector. This, Duvalier and his allies were told, was the way toward modernization and economic development.

    From the standpoint of the World Bank and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Haiti was the perfect candidate for this neoliberal facelift. The entrenched poverty of the Haitian masses could be used to force them into low-paying jobs sewing baseballs and assembling other products.

    But USAID had plans for the countryside too. Not only were Haiti’s cities to become exporting bases but so was the countryside, with Haitian agriculture also reshaped along the lines of export-oriented, market-based production. To accomplish this USAID, along with urban industrialists and large landholders, worked to create agro-processing facilities, even while they increased their practice of dumping surplus agricultural products from the U.S. on the Haitian people.

    This “aid” from the Americans, along with the structural changes in the countryside predictably forced Haitian peasants who could no longer survive to migrate to the cities, especially Port-au-Prince where the new manufacturing jobs were supposed to be. However, when they got there they found there weren’t nearly enough manufacturing jobs go around. The city became more and more crowded. Slum areas expanded. And to meet the housing needs of the displaced peasants, quickly and cheaply constructed housing was put up, sometimes placing houses right “on top of each other.”

    Before too long, however, American planners and Haitian elites decided that perhaps their development model didn’t work so well in Haiti and they abandoned it. The consequences of these American-led changes remain, however.

    When on the afternoon and evening of January 12, 2010 Haiti experienced that horrible earthquake and round after round of aftershock the destruction was, no doubt, greatly worsened by the very real over-crowding and poverty of Port-au-Prince and the surrounding areas. But shocked Americans can do more than shake their heads and, with pity, make a donation. They can confront their own country’s responsibility for the conditions in Port-au-Prince that magnified the earthquake’s impact, and they can acknowledge America’s role in keeping Haiti from achieving meaningful development. To accept the incomplete story of Haiti offered by CNN and the New York Times is to blame Haitians for being the victims of a scheme that was not of their own making. As John Milton wrote, “they who have put out the people’s eyes, reproach them of their blindness.”

    Jim Goad seems to believe that human history is a racial tournament, team against team. Most of us seem to think it’s a bit more complex than that. But if he’s right, can I trade him?

  173. Jim Goad says:

    Nice long cut-and-paste there, “Munnersby,” demonstrating that…umm…that…ehhh…that nations founded on black independence STILL can’t help but get fucked over by the white man? That’s not very flattering to blacks and is itself a warped form of white supremacy, always casting the blacks as helpless.

    I’ll point out a case of disingenuousness on here, and it’s by “factcheck”—the city of Atlanta has had black mayors and almost all-black local government since the 1970s. It is also perennially competing with other Afro-paradises such as Detroit and St. Louis for golden rings such as “America’s Most Dangerous City.”

    Fact is, the Atlanta area is unique in that the city itself comprises less than ten percent of the Atlanta Statistical Metropolitan Area. Population within the city boundaries is only about a half-million, while the metro area hosts more than five million people. Of that five million, blacks constitute only around thirty percent. And much of the area’s economic strength comes from the sectors surrounding the city itself, especially the North Side. So while the city itself is “self-governed by Negros [sic],” this ignores the city’s near-slavish dependence on its surrounding areas to maintain any appearance of prosperity. If the North Side were to commit economic coitus interruptus and pull out tomorrow, you’d be looking at Detroit II within a week.

    The corner of Ponce & Boulevard is probably the worst place in the ATL. My wife has lived here her entire life, and she says that corner is worse now than it ever was. But try a sprinkle of honesty next time and admit it still looks nothing like that picture of Haiti…not even close. If you have photographic evidence to support your contention, don’t be shy—let’s see it.

    And “krispy”—ethnic conflict, which occurs whenever and wherever there is ethnic “diversity,” is about as “complicated” as things get. The idea of universal brotherhood and cooperation is the fatal oversimplification here. Then again, you’ve used six different screen names on this thread, so maybe you like to complicate things.

  174. Jim Goad says:

    “I’ll happily fuck off when you can articulate why being insensitive to human catastrophe makes me disingenuous. I bet you can’t.”

    Re-read that sentence. Are you claiming to be insensitive to the catastrophe? Welcome to the club!

    Either way, a lot of disingenuousness on here stems from pretending that all these appeals to emotion rather than logic constitute some sort of intellectual argument.

    You want to feel sorrow about what’s happening to people you never met? Fine. No one’s stopping you. But it only makes you “compassionate” and not necessarily smart. Stop confusing your emotions with your ability to reason.

  175. Jim Goad says:

    I snapped this photo in ’07 very close to the corner of Ponce de Leon & Boulevard in Atlanta:

  176. still a goadfan despite one so-so piece says:

    @Jim Goad: That was me. I made the misspelled statement about Negroes running the ATL, and that was kind of a joke about Ponce/Blvd. Sorry I wasn’t crazy about this one piece you wrote, but most of my post was an attack on the hipsters who frequent this site and their knee-jerk reactions to your opinions. As far as the ATL goes, I didn’t last long there. I’ve never dealt with so much racism anywhere I’ve lived, and usually the black people like me just fine.

  177. You’re saying “Hey, I live in Atlanta, where there are lots of black people, so you can’t call me racist”

    Also, I realize this is way late, but Stephen Glass? I think you meant to say “descendant” of slave masters, not “ancestor”.

    @stoops Says:
    “T.T.; read a book. germany and japan had millions pumped into their economies post wwII. they were not allowed to fail.”

    The USA and other nations have sent a lot of money to Haiti over the years, but it doesn’t appear to have helped Haiti.

  182. Pretzel says:

    @Vane$$a who said,
    “Didn’t you basically rip-off Pat Robertson’s shpeel on Haiti while substituting his “pact with the devil” with your own insinuations of intellectual inferiority resulting in the break down of order?”

    Pat Robertson sincerely believes in what the Bible says: that to turn to Satan, one will forfeit the protections and blessings of God.

    In other words, Robertson’s comments were not an accusation that blacks being into the “voo doo” religion in Haiti was due to them being uneducated and stupid or not as intelligent as whites.

    Robertson would be the first to tell you their problem is sin and not knowing the Gospel, and not “intellectual inferiority.” That’s something you’re reading into his comments.

  183. Pretzel says:

    @Jay said
    “…However, I dont see what function this generic ‘look what happens when africans are left to their own devices’ gloat rant serves in the aftermath of 50,000+ humans losing their lives.”

    Because it’s highly relevant, that’s why.

    Considering that a lot of people are flying into Haiti with food, medicine, etc., and that the Haitians (some of them) have turned violent (i.e. looters), those aid workers are putting their lives on the line, possibly.

    That should be taken into consideration, not just standing around weeping at photos on the internet or TV of dead bodies covered in sheets.

    Then there are the millions and millions of dollars that Americans and others are donating to this nation. Those who are donating the money have a right to hold the Haitians accountable for what they do with it and to expect them to perform better in the future.

    Haiti has been receiving handouts for years and years.

    After this recovery effort, they’re not going to be any better off than they were before the earthquake.

    Five, ten, or twenty years from now, another earth quake is likely going to hit Haiti again- and will they be able to take care of it themselves at that time, or will the Americans, and whomever else, once again have to fly in and drop off food?

    The Haitians can’t even behave themselves in a tragedy or when aid workers arrive to help them out. Some articles said there is chaos, all their police quit, and there has been rioting and looting.

    Still other news reports say that when relief trucks pull up containing food, the younger, stronger Haitians have knocked the older/ sick/ young kids out of the way to be first in line. Some of the Haitians were using corpses as road blocks to prohibit relief workers from getting through.

    You have to look at facts like those to make decisions on when, how, and if to help people.

  184. Jim Goad says:

    @”You’re saying “Hey, I live in Atlanta, where there are lots of black people, so you can’t call me racist”

    That’s not what I said at all.

    What I said (it’s right up there at the end of the article) is that you CAN call me racist, but it doesn’t MATTER to me, because, unlike 99 percent of you sheep, I’m not afraid of being called bad names that might hurt my social standing. The reason I’m not afraid is because I’ve never heard anyone come up with an adequate explanation of what that word actually means—that’s why I called it a “social construct.” The word “racist” has no objective meaning whatsoever, and I like to watch people stutter and stumble over themselves trying to define it.

    Most of you are so terrified of being labeled “racist” that you’ll sidestep what’s actually true and false. If a fact is incontrovertibly true but seems “racist,” that doesn’t stop it from being a fact. It does, however, undermine the idea that you can label something false merely because it seems to be “racist.”

  185. Jim Goad says:

    “I think MONEY is much more complex, much more influential and interesting, and much more genuinely taboo than race. ”

    Good piece, Jim…

    As someone who has read Jared Diamond’s Guns, Germs, and Steel (which, evidently, you will soon confront), let me reassure you that the book is very readable and very tendentious. It ain’t disinterested science–it’s agenda-driven, ingenious casuistry. Those proclaiming it as the Last Word on intellectual egalitarianism are in error…and they are certainly entitled to remain so.

    Haiti didn’t have to become a failed state–a non-state, actually. But it did…and if whitey IS to blame for that, then don’t the hommes de couleur bear some responsibility for allowing it to happen? They sure as hell whupped some graymeat ass circa 1805…and, assuming they were on equal footing cognition-wise with the Europeans, they should have developed a society at least no worse off than the Dominican Republic by now…

  187. CB says:

    Anent that list of poorest countries…number one with an inflationary bullet is Zimbabwe.

    You couldn’t ask for a better example of a country that went to shit after blacks took over the reins of government. In 1980 (when Ian Smith “left office”) it was a net exporter of grain. Now, after thirty years of Robert Mugabe, it is on a knife’s-edge of famine. (They also recently introduced a TRILLION-dollar note…)

    And the “Democratic Republic” of the Congo is loaded to the gills with natural resources. As bad as the Belgians were, the hypothesis that things get WORSE after the pith helmets leave seems to be borne out here as well. That country is worse than a Mad Max movie…

    Even hundred-million-strong Nigeria, with all that oil, has a lower GDP than Nicaragua, the poorest country in Central America. That’s amazing.

    I’m really hard-pressed to believe that, per Jared Diamond, grass distribution in the Middle East is the fons et origo of that state of affairs…

  188. Come ON. says:

    Here’s the Wikipedia definition of racism: ‘Racism is the belief that race is a primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.’

    Would it be fair to say that that definition matches the rhetoric and message of this statement?:

    ‘I believe Carl Jung was onto something when he spoke of a “collective unconscious,” and I also believe the “racists” are onto something when they speak of things such as “tribal instinct” and “genetic memory.” Therefore, I think it’s entirely natural for a black dude living in Brooklyn in 2010 to feel aggrieved about the indignities suffered by his distant ancestral brethren in Haiti before the slaves came to their senses and slaughtered all the whites.’

    Jung was positing a theory on archetypes when he came up with the ‘collective unconsious’, which makes your take on the concept uncharacteristically flaky – are you suggesting some kind of reincarnation of the ‘soul’?

    When you say that racism is a ‘social construct’ you seem to be sidestepping the label yourself by relativizing an objective concept. Why not just own up to the fact that you believe in the superiority of the white race?

  189. stephen says:

    jim you’re very talented with rhetoric but extremely misguided and/or desperate for attention. i don’t know, but it’s fortunate most people don’t think like you

    pretty much every culture has blood on its hands… two wrongs don’t make a right. yeah you’re just trying to be contrarian but you suck at it and i wish you’d see the error of your ways

    and as far as your most recent reply with the money figures… correlation does not equal causation. and, additionally, the IMF/world bank impoverishes those countries constantly with debt slavery.. inadvertently or not.

    yep, looks like a lot of black countries are poorer and have more problems than white countries, for some reasons that are not their fault, and for some reasons that are their fault, and for a lot of reasons that create a vicious cycle (a poor country is more vulnerable to having more problems, a country with problems is more vulnerable to poverty)… but basically race IS incidental (look at eastern europe). well, up until the point that it’s NOT incidental… like past factors of colonialism, racism, etc. basically everything you’re in denial of because it’s “sociology 101” talk.

    the only solution is a little compassion… and, wow, seems like now might be a good TIME for it

    @Come ON: This is a paraphrase, I don’t feel like waking up my girlfriend by going upstairs and getting the book: “I’m not a white supremacist. Everyone knows the Jews and Chinks are superior”.

    -sentiment expressed in The Redneck Manifesto by Jim Goad

    Hardly the words of someone who believes in the superiority of the white race, no? Ohhh, you meant superior to the mud people? Oh, ok. I haven’t been able to figure that one out myself, but facts is facts and facts can’t be “racist”, can they?

  191. Come ON. says:

    @ easily

    ‘facts is facts and facts can’t be “racist”, can they?’ I think most people have learned by now that facts are often selected according to a given agenda and that statistics can be manipulated to suit that agenda. Furthermore, when Goad says he’s not a white supremacist he goes on to call Asian people ‘chinks’.

    Like another commenter noted: ‘ Jim Goad seems to believe that human history is a racial tournament, team against team.’ The above rant from Goad finally clarifies where he stands and that’s firmly on the white side side against all other races. He begrudgingly acknowledges that Jews are richer and that Asian people have the technological egde, but he’s doing his best to flip that on its head by ’empowering’ white people. It may not be neo-nazism but it’s certainly racism. And I don’t get why he doesn’t own up to it.

    True – a fact, in and of itself, cannot be racist.

    P.S. the reason a writer of Goad’s talents (not counting this piece, of course, and this is the last time I’ll take a potshot at it) uses words like “chink” and “nigger” is because they’re inherently funny-sounding words, and the way these silly-sounding words make uptight “progressive” hipsters wax apoplectic is downright hilarious. Or, at least, that’s my theory. Herr Goad is free to disagree with it.

  195. Answer MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE says:

    making a bunch of points about race and money and negroes or whatever is fine.. especially if they’re true. but it’s just an asshole shitty lowblow attention starved faggoty thing to do the day after half a million people have just died. it’s heartless sociopathic cunt behaviour. I am a fan but somehow I think if your house caved in on your kids head you wouldn’t want to hear some smartass negating it’s relevance in order to impress a bunch of cokeheads and reformed cokeheads on a comedy website. next time wait a week or so you jackass

  196. Answer MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE says:

    oops I put an apostrophe in “its” that wasn’t appropriate.. I guess Goad will now not take my totally valid comment seriously.. wuhh oh. PARP PARP here comes the wienermobile

  197. Mate, you can be racist, that’s fine with me, to each their own – since it’s all relative to you (props on that, you’re not socially strained), but pretty much as everyone with even a little bit of humanity within them, this piece of shit writing that’s PURPOSELY written right after so many people died just makes you look like a massive DIPSHIT, whether racist or not.

    The fact isn’t even that you’ve written it after the incident itself (cause it could have been coincidence), it’s the fact that YOU FUCKING TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY ITSELF, JUST TO WRITE IT.

    you = MASSIVE DIPSHIT. again, if you didn’t read it the first time.

    Keep it real, homie.

    Jim…

    Nicaragua is a good country to compare Haiti with when trying to suss out explanatory factors for the latter’s absolute fucked-upedness. The two countries have a lot in common historically. All the reasons adduced here to explain Haiti’s status as a cataclysmic failure–by, let’s call them the “nigger-lovers”–apply to Nicaragua as well. However, Nicaragua–albeit certifiably Third World–is not a cataclysmic faiure…

    Brutal colonial exploitation for centuries: check. The Spanish cut a swathe through Nicaragua–as they did with all their other colonies.

    Yanqui interference: check. From William Walker in the 19th century, to a Marine invasion and occupation in the 20th, Uncle Sam has poked his snout into Nicaraguan internal affairs…and not in the best interests of the Nicaraguans. (The U.S. conducted the first ever aerial bombardment in this hemisphere back in the 1920s over the city of Ocotal in an attempt to kill Augusto Sandino.)

    Horrible government: check. After the Spanish left, Nicaragua was ruled by wealthy oligarchs with an iron fist for decades. There was constant political instability and periodic coups, culminating with the ascendance of Somoza in the late 1930s. For forty years, the Somoza clan picked the country clean. Then the Sandinistas kicked them out in ’79, touching off a brutal, bloody civil war that lasted for years. (The government today is still very corrupt.)

    Deprived population: check. Nicaragua throughout its history has not had a social safety net…and Nicaraguans then and now live a hardscrabble existence. They have to work HARD to exist. Salaries are low, prices are high, and life is extremely tough.

    Vulnerability to natural disasters: check. Nicaragua is very tectonically active, and the country is riddled with volcanoes. In the early 1970s, Managua was leveled by a massive earthquake, the effects of which are still visible today.

    Chalk up all those attributes and it is unsurprising that Nicaragua is the poorest country in Central America. But why is it so much better off than Haiti, so much more developed–you can eat at a friggin’ Quizno’s in Managua, for crissake–even though their historical records are very similar?

    We’ve done the ceteris parabus–what remains unique to Haiti that explains its much-inferior level of development?

    When a 40-something faux-erudite starts springing stuff like ‘collective unconscious’ on you cause he knows he can get away with it when it’s caked in something more appropriate to an early-hours college dorm-room blaze and giggle session where mindless controversy is always welcome well then, he can be forgiven for attempting to vicariously experience that feeling of stoner camaraderie induced when you hit the nail on the head in an unusual, witty way. Which only seems to happen when everyone’s stoned, and importantly, there with you.

  200. C J says:

    Check that, I should’ve done my research about 3 months ago reading my first Jim Goad article, his review of ‘Mein Kampf’. Back then and up until now, I was prematurely under the impression that his tongue was firmly in his cheek and liked it. And liked the rest of the stuff as well, however, when you (of that indeed is you) start retorting on the comment thread with data professing the distinct correlation between poor countries and ones inhabited predominantly by black people, in Africa, which happened to find out about gun-powder when it rocked up on a boat, well then you start to think hang on a sec. Where’s the irony gone.

  208. Jim Goad says:

    @”Why not just own up to the fact that you believe in the superiority of the white race?”

    Because I’d be lying if I said that.

    I’m certain that very few of you know how weird it is to be in a position where you sincerely express your beliefs KNOWING they’re going to be unpopular, yet you get accused of being afraid to express your sincere beliefs because you’re afraid it will make you unpopular.

    My beliefs are not set in stone, but here’s where they stand in 2010: I believe that evolution is an ongoing process and that it definitely hasn’t rendered all of humankind “equal” in any meaningful way. Regarding innate cognitive abilities, it’s been my observation that Caucasians fall somewhere in the middle. It’s also been the conclusion of nearly every cognitive test ever developed.

    As far as creating sustainable nations and political systems, as well as desirable living environments, I’d rank whites somewhere near the top. They’re not quite Jews or the Japanese—then again, Israel and Japan aren’t as spread-eagle, wide-open about immigrants as we are—but white nations definitely have a better track record on that tip than most of the darker climes. And every one of you who chooses to live in a majority-white nation rather than Haiti or Liberia is, by your ACTIONS, saying the same thing, whether you like to admit it or not. If you’re a first- or second-generation American, why didn’t your parents decide to relocate to a majority-black nation south of the Sahara instead of this evil, bigoted place? How many of you scoffers are living in East New York, by the way? How about East St. Louis? Detroit city limits? Compton, perchance? Anyone? Hello?

    What most of you fail to understand is that it doesn’t MATTER what I “believe.” What matters are the facts. It just so happens that the facts tend to undermine your beliefs rather than mine. Have a nice week!

    The thing is, there are 70,000 deaths in Africa every day. That’s “life” over there. To see you all come screaming out of the woodwork with tears in your eyes is suspect. If you want to be sympathetic to the Dark Continent it has charities and causes and schools for a billion Bill Gateses. Why now?

    Haiti’s always been destitute. Now it’s a lot more so but in the grand scheme of things, this is simply a fairly bad day over there. The truth of the matter is Crying for Haiti is fashionable. In a week from now nobody here will ever think about the place again.

    I would not have landed on this achingly silly street-boner-whatever site were it not for a co-worker who sent this link to me as I’m completing a thesis on how “youth” culture no longer possesses any true subculture so its members attempt to be (and I reiterate “attempt”) “shocking”, sarcastic, or ironic.

    And so my apologies to the editors and readers of the website for having landed at this point – – at this time and place – – which has brought them here, to this kind of buffoonery.

    Indeed were any of you thinking clearly you’d see the beautiful irony in that your website and its contents are so similar and as tragically “interesting” as that of websites of septuagenarian religious fundamentalists.

    Not sure how old Jim Goad is but he and Pat Robertson are essentially espousing the same kind of reason. Perhaps this website is actually brought to kids by Robertson himself. Now that’s truly a bit shocking.

    You are all tired. Learn yourselves. Learn history. Learn logic and critical thinking.

  219. Joe Joe says:

    Why this Jimbo Goat guy so obsessed with race? I mean really who else spends all this time thinking and writing and obsessing about blacks and other races he doesn’t like?

    What racism tick crawled between this Goad guy’s narrow milky butt cheeks and masticates at his shredded anus all day long? Does Goad go to sleep thinking of blacks and new ways to get off on getting down on them?

    Hasn’t he already received enough mental (and quite likely physical) blowjobs from that miniscular cadre of men that follow and chit chat with him? Those quacky wacky pack of racists and maxim type men that get a boner every time Goad validates their funny little thoughts?

    I mean, get over it. Stop the masturbatory rants and move on to something well worth wasting your and other people’s time over.

    Why I have to see this dribble on this website?

  220. Jim Goad says:

    “I was. Every year for winter break”

    So basically, every year, you were selfishly spending enough on a vacation to feed an entire Haitian family for a year? Did you see the video link up there where they’re eating cookies made of mud and salt? Glad you enjoyed the beaches while they starved, Compassionate One.

    “Learn logic and critical thinking.”

    Point out my logical errors, and then maybe you’re onto something. Nothing I’m doing is an attempt to be shocking. Haiti itself provides all the shock value. The truth is only shocking to those who aren’t aware of it.

    .

  221. Andrew says:

    Hey “Jennifer”, besides calling Jim all kinds of names like he said people like you would, you haven’t disputed a single fact he has put forth. Not one. Your ignorance to the meaning in his article and the facts presented are pretty fucking appalling considering you claim to care so much about Haiti. Stop trying to establish “street cred” and get with the fucking program. And that program is the truth.
    Brave writers like Jim present the awful truths to make the world a better place. If blacks in any country would own up to their situation and start being productive me and you wouldn’t have to spend so much goddamned money in aid and resources. We simply can’t ignore these facts anymore. Important conversations need to be started, and your brain-dead name-calling needs to go.
    A quick question for you(any of you) offended parties before I go: How does Jim’s article hurt Haiti? Can any of you quantify that please?

  222. Jim Goad says:

    “Why this Jimbo Goat guy so obsessed with race? I mean really who else spends all this time thinking and writing and obsessing about blacks and other races he doesn’t like?”

    I’m writing a book about it. This will be my fifth book. I realize you’ve probably never done anything which requires remotely the amount of the dedication and focus it requires to write a book, so I’ll let you slide due to your ignorance.

    I’m also fixated on the topic because I’m personally fascinated with taboos, and there’s no topic on earth as fraught with taboos and witch-hunting than race.

    Also…about a week before our “post-racial” president was elected, I promised that I’d stop talking about race if I could see ONE DAY where Yahoo! News didn’t feature a race-themed headline.

    I’m still talking.

  223. “So basically, every year, you were selfishly spending enough on a vacation to feed an entire Haitian family for a year? Did you see the video link up there where they’re eating cookies made of mud and salt? Glad you enjoyed the beaches while they starved, Compassionate One.”

    Yes, Jim, every year. But you don’t know what I do down there do you? Or are you just assuming I spend buttloads on hedonism just to cruise down Port-au-Prince and look at others starve.

    Let me do my end of assuming, and guess you know fuck all about Haitian society, where their/our upper class is the equivalent of America’s working class, so whatever standards you have for someone like me that goes back to the homeland on vaca, you need to lower those by about 90 percent. Beach & lobster for you is luxury, beach & lobster for Haitians is almost a given (like caviar, for Russians, or gold for Ethiopians, you know, shit like that).

    Something else you don’t know, ‘cookies’ made of mud and salt is cultural. You’re grossed out by it, they’re not. Does every country need to live up to having hot dogs and quadruplecheesebaconburger as their national meal? EVERYTHING IS RELATIVE.

    P.S: I don’t have a beach house.

    I’M DONE HERE. YOU ALL CAN GO FUCK YOURSELVES AND WANK OVER DEAD BODIES.

  224. Jim Goad says:

    “Something else you don’t know, ‘cookies’ made of mud and salt is cultural.””

    It was also very common among the poor whites in colonial America. One of the original synonyms of “redneck” was “clay-eater.”

    So don’t talk shit about not knowing shit about someone else’s culture.

  225. Jim Goad says:

    By the by, Pat Robertson wasn’t the only delusional religious nut to say God caused the earthquake:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/01/17/AR2010011702321.html

    And as far as comparisons to Pat Robertson go, I’d say almost everyone on here is closer to him than I am, because they approach “racism” as fearfully, superstitiously, and illogically as he approaches the “Devil.”

  226. Joe Joe says:

    Jennifer, don’t waste your time writing back to this angry louse-infested thing called Jimbo Goad. Haven’t you ever heard the line “You can’t talk sense to a sick mind”? You can’t talk sense to someone that sees through the nutty kookaburra lens that he looks through. Goad is so gone he actually thinks that what he wrote is some kind of reasonable essay that matters. Why have a conversation with such a deluded nutcase?

    Blah blah blah. All he talks about is Blackie this blackie that. You crazy Goad! That Chicken Rondelet dude is so spot-on. Jimbo Goat is Pat Robertson himself. Spooky slime mold.

    Can you imagine the dinner conversations at Goad’s home at dinnertime? Hi honey and kid let’s talk about blacks. What do you hate most about them? what dumbass picture did you take of them today? How can we make blacks look bad right now so we can somehow feel good about our sad little poor selves?

    So don’t argue with him. He’s crazy as a loon. A sad sack of a man who is completely obsessed with race. Sadly nothing good comes out of that except a few boners that some crazy ass fanboys get when they read Pat Roberston’s – ops I mean Goad’s – nonsense psychoCaca.

  227. Retah says:

    To Chicken Rondelet…and the Hipsters

    Subcultures are worthless and Jimothy is not a youth to begin with- the “youth” are the people leaving comments in opposition to Jim and in denial of reality are the youths. I’m guessing that Chicken Rondelet is probably a BABY BOOMER. Your generation and your experiment in “equality” has spawned a nightmare. The level of anti-white violence coming from non-whites in the United States and Europe is at warfare levels.
    A white male writing an “insensitive” article does not negate the cold race war of low level genocide being carried out by “people of color” and the witchhunt carried out by the religion of Equality against any who dare oppose the desecration of Western Civilzation. You are not logical and you do not base your opinions on actual historical, statistical, and scientific facts that are not distorted to conform to a suicidal ideology of weepy eyed self flagellating white guilt. I’ve known too many young brainwashed women who trusted the negroe and ended up gang-raped, diseased, or dead. I do hate the negroe for it is an abomination not even fit to refer to as an animal; but more akin to a cancer that kills civilization and humanity. You self-centered hipster scum enable the butchery, you are enemies of civilization; white-guilt gimps on an addict’s trip injecting your genome with sewer water.

  228. Jim Goad says:

    Again, Joe Joe—point to the illogical statements. I’m not the one tossing out strictly ad hominem arguments. And after a while, it appears that’s all you and your “side” have going for you. So who’s taking the low road? With nothing in your armory besides insults and slurs, you sound just like bigots!

    Bottom line about this article:

    I don’t give a fuck about the suffering in Haiti.

    Many of you give a fuck.

    I don’t give a fuck whether you give a fuck.

    But you give a fuck that I don’t give a fuck.

    So who’s being coercive? Who’s thinking like a fascist? Who demands that I pay taxes, without consent, to help “aid” this incurable fuckup of a nation founded on the genocide of my ancestors?

    Tag—you’re it.

    Comic Book Guy, you’re an ignorant fuck. Goad kicked beat his girlfriend because of death threats. Secondly, the Jews faced more oppression and obstacles than Haiti ever experienced under the rule of white-male hegemony and over a far greater period of time: thousands of years. Ask yourself this: why was Haiti a cum-dumpster before colonialism and why did it revert to a cum-dumpster AFTER colonialism? Goad isn’t right about everything, but when he is he’s right on target. An absolutely brilliant essay. And as for the shit-squeezing sphincter who claimed that Goad was the guy who pissed on the retard in Junior High, you need to learn what the fuck you’re talking about: Goad was a left-wing douche bag back then just like you cum-gargling jizzlobbers. So fuck Haiti, fuck Africa, fuck all the mud people, fuck the “Native Americans,” and most of all, fuck all of you.

  236. Mr. Bungle says:

    FOUL, you’re an ignorant nigger shit-stain. Have you ever heard of the genocidal murder of the Armenians? The constant genocidal campaigns in AFRICA? The genocidal campaign launched by the Japanese during the 1940s? Or the genocidal campaign that founded HAITI? (Hint: Goad discusses this last one in the essay you pretended to have read.) The fact is, low I.Q., porch-monkey, missing-link throwbacks such as yourself owe everything you have to WHITE MALES OF EUROPEAN DESCENT. So fall to your Negro knees, suck my throbbing johnson, and lavish me and my kind with thanks and praise. We deserve it.

  239. M&M says:

    Jim,

    As someone who once read your work I don’t care if you care or anyone cares that you don’t care about the suffering in Haiti. What I do care about is that you were once a provocative writer who was able to raise important discussions about how certain social taboos left untouched allow for the continuation of false nationalistic narratives. But your whole formula is crumbling now that, in order to make your arguments, you cling to the very types of ancestral legacies and statistics that you once tried to dispute.

    Pointing to the obvious sanctimony in the public media is a valid argument, but that gets lost once you become all sanctimonious yourself. Come on, part-French bloodline by way of Canada and you think this is your battle to wage? What about the percentage of Haiti’s current population who are direct descendants of French Colonialists? Don’t they have as much French sperm in them as you? But I guess it boils down to them being on the lower ranks of your quantified racial chain of command, regardless of their incredible “genocide” that nearly ended French civilization as we know it.

    Speaking of statistics and your call to focus on “truth and false” rather than right or wrong: It was once considered a statistical and genetic ‘truth’ that people with extra melanin in their skin were inferior in every way to those with less. It was also common at that time for doctors to drill holes in the heads of people with brain tumors, often killing them in the process. Too bad they still don’t, otherwise your legacy as an important writer might have been saved.

  240. Nick says:

    Ha! Nice volley there M&M, that oughta be the last word on this whole thing though I doubt it will be…Seems like you’re alienating a lot of your old fans here, Jim, good work! I take it you don’t have any plans to distance yourself from all the straight up white supremacists who are spewing all over this site in your defense. This is because a) you fundamentally agree with them and/or b) you are gonna need someone to buy your next screed, and you know how hung up these folks are on RACE RACE RACE so why fuck with book sales further by pissing them off, too? Which is it?

  241. krispy says:

    Give up. I think Goad’s “tribal instinct” fetish and his visions of a racial Battle Royale are ridiculous. But if you’re not obsessive enough to debate him, give it a rest. He will never doubt himself, and he’s better at this than you are.

    After this wet fart of an essay, I’m going to pass on the race book. If he discovers a racially fixated “collective unconscious,” I hope he moves on to alchemy next, because I could sure use some gold right about now. But I stand by The Redneck Manifesto – it’s still essential reading on the American class system.

  242. krispy says:

    As for why Goad never, ever argues with his highly “emotional” racist fans… that is kind of curious.

  243. Jim Goad says:

    “What about the percentage of Haiti’s current population who are direct descendants of French Colonialists? Don’t they have as much French sperm in them as you?”

    Absolutely not, and I’d bet that DNA tests could quantify it. Jesus Christ, a fucking police lineup could settle the question. You don’t need DNA tests to settle that one—only eyes. Seriously, point to ONE person amid all the footage of Haiti’s devastation who could be accurately described as a “direct descendant of French colonialists.” Maybe you missed the part about how Haiti came into being through the wholesale slaughter of anyone who so much as looked like a French colonialist.

    And merely because people reached errant conclusions in the past based on notions of facts and logic is no reason to toss out the very ideas of facts and logic. You’re indulging in some Gould-level intellectual dishonesty there. That’s called “throwing out the baby with the bath water.” How were those who believed in trepanation refuted, anyway? Oh, that’s right—through BETTER facts and logic! Facts and logic aren’t the problem—but incomplete facts and bad reasoning are, which is why I’ve repeatedly INVITED people here to point out where I’m in error. When someone pointed out a chronological mistake I’d made regarding Liberia’s foundation, I copped to it immediately. But when people’s only response is, “It’s not worth arguing with someone so illogical,” I start to suspect that they really don’t HAVE any logical rhetorical comeback, or they’d be more SPECIFIC. Brainwashed by the Religion of Equality, they’re conditioned to being able to silence someone merely by shouting “RACIST!” I’m sure it puzzles the fuck out of them that this doesn’t deter me.

    I realize that someone has to entirely discard facts and logic to maintain the implausible notion of innate human cognitive equality, but that’s your dialectical problem, not mine. It’s your folk religion, not mine.

    And thanks for the thinly veiled wish that I’d die. Brain tumors and prison didn’t kill me, so some misguided egalitarian’s passive-aggressive keyboard-pecking definitely won’t do the job.

    “As for why Goad never, ever argues with his highly “emotional” racist fans… that is kind of curious.”

    What’s “curious” is that some schmuck who conceded that I’m better at verbal sparring than anyone who tries to go up against me continues to pick a losing fight. Did it ever occur to you that I don’t respond to some of those people for the same reason that I rarely, if ever, respond to mere insults?

    In some cases, I suspect that people who come on here railing about “niggers” are either trolls or those who can ONLY contribute misplaced personal emotion to the discussion. I once booted someone from my Lounge for repeatedly saying “nigger” but not being able to quantify why he said it so much or how his personal life differed that much from a ghetto thug’s.

    And to Nick…I’ve never written a word with pleasing the “fans” in mind. Never. From the first word of ANSWER Me!, I’ve treated the reader as either an intruder or an enemy. That’s why, at the height of my popularity, I purposely released the “Rape Issue” of ANSWER Me! to send 90% of the “fans” packing.

    For those who misinterpreted “The Redneck Manifesto” as a Marxist tract and are now chagrined that I’ve joined Darth Vader and his evil kinsmen: I continue to acknowledge that financiers use people’s innate tribal instincts to keep people at each others’ throats instead of united against the money interests. But I contend that those tribal instincts are real and would exist whether the wealthy were manipulating those instincts or not. If there were only two people left on Earth, I believe they’d inevitably find a way to play Crips and Bloods.

    I still don’t see the value in trying to prove (through facts) that black people are, as a whole, less intelligent than white people. And no matter how many facts you can bring to the table, it still seems like a fucked up pursuit that doesn’t do anyone any good.

    There are many truths that you could be out there pursuing. The fact that you choose the topic of innate racial inequality again and again, and that you feel the need to insult Haitians at this current time, indicates that while you might in fact possess a strong IQ, you are lacking in emotional intelligence. I’m not sure if that is of any importance to you, but it seems sad to me that someone who is so smart and could contribute so much has such a seemingly ugly agenda.

    If anyone is looking for examples of black-run countries that are pretty decent to live in, you don’t need to look very far. Antigua, Barbados, the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands do pretty well. All have flaws, but none have the kind of violence, poverty, and sickness that Haiti did.

  249. I’m regurgitating my words here, and adding one more comment (sorry to all, this shit should be over by now, real talk)

    but T.T, do you know fuck all about voodoo other than what ‘white man’s perception and demonizing of it? No, I’m actually being serious, do you?

    As someone who’s gone through Catholic school, in Port-au-Prince mind you, for 15 years, where even THEY want you to believe that it’s the ‘devil’s religion, once I actually looked into it and saw with my own fucking eyes what the shit’s really about, I shut the fuck up, so do your fucking research (and all sides, please) before you bring anything to the table.

    And Jim, what was the point of bringing up the Haitian mud cookies, if you were going to point back at rednecks who did the same? Isn’t that a rhetoric within itself. Man, are you even making anymore sense?

    Nobody’s asking you to give a fuck, that’s sort of what you don’t get, but your input is not needed (difference), that’s like me getting a broken leg, and you come out of nowhere and stabbing my wound, who the fuck are you? I don’t know you? Fuck off.

    catch my drift?

  250. M&M says:

    Jim,

    Certainly you don’t think that everyone carrying even a smidgen of French blood is born with skin as white as a Grand Wizard’s sheets? I’m about to blow your mind, ready? Black Franchies exist (even if the whites aren’t so proud of that fact) And not only black people, but (fart) there are Haitian communities in France, too. Although I hope your call to point to anyone in the rubble who could be called direct descendants of French Colonialists is merely facetious, I’d gladly point to anyone who speaks the nations second official language, French.

    But I’ll ask you the same: try to identify anyone in the rubble who is a direct descendant of those SPECIFIC individuals who were responsible for the killing of French Colonialists, and not their babies or grandmas either, I mean the guys running around with frogs heads on the end of their spears. Of course, outside of your vindicated white fantasy, this is as futile as being able to use skin color alone to identify someone’s heritage.

    I don’t wish that you die or that you would have died. I was merely trying to point out the arcane nature of your argument while hitting a little close to the bone by matching your own benign, figurative condemnation of someone you don’t really know. And I think people who refer to you as a ‘racist’ are lazy. But it seems your own logic is becoming just as lazy, and as such, is attracting bottom feeders who really are racist and ignorant like Retah and Mr. Bungle. These clods aren’t just trolls, they are your new base, and it might serve your legacy well for you to take a minute and think about that before you publish this book. After all, it was your beloved Carl Jung’s foggy mysticism an unapologetic antisemitism that allowed him to be posthumously labeled the “Aryan Christ”. But it’s not like you care about what anyone cares now or in the future, even the misguided musings of this egalitarian who you once called a ‘fan’.

    @ Jennifer Hudson:

    Call me presumptuous, but I think Jim was showing your own depth of cultural knowledge by pointing out that geophagy/pica isn’t limited to one specific group. It mostly exists as a rural phenomenon (in reference to The Redneck Manifesto, perhaps a throwback to primordial man), and while it isn’t as gross as most eating disorders, the “dirt cookies” have been linked to several health problems.

    Voodoo is still bat-shit crazy, though.

    Dig?

    Milky Says:
    How is the above not the same as saying “I can’t debate you with facts so I’ll just beat you up”?

    You can debate the differences, wrongdoings, attributes, and inequalities of the races until you’re blue in the fuckin’ face, and it won’t change a Goddamn thing. All you’ll end up being is a miserable bastard with nothing to say but the same repetitive bullshit. Trying to use Carl Jung’s theory of the “Collective Unconscious” to justify racism is a feeble attempt to persuade uneducated lemmings, who are either incapable or unwilling to go directly to the source of the subject at hand, to buy into a movement by dropping certain keywords and phrases that seem intelligent, until they’ve bought into the context of their own unique brand of “collective unconscious.” Pseudo-intellectual ideologies having to stretch that far are akin to the Nazis using Nietzsche to justify their actions. Like it or not, but in a few more generations, their probably won’t even be any distinguishable races. Jim Goad claiming to be a “Redneck” would be analogous to Tiger Woods claiming to be a “Thug.” I have to work construction and offshore with the real rednecks of the world, and as much as they would agree with Goad on many things (although not nearly as articulately), they’d get tired of hearing that shit really fast, and the same rednecks that Goad seems to be adamantly defensive of would end up taking on the characteristics of Andre Berto in their treatment of him. GUARANTEED!!! I’m not responding to anything else on here, I’m done. That’s my version of the truth, you’re welcome to have yours, because I really don’t give a fuck.

  255. “I brought it up because you were on the beach while they were eating mud cookies, then you went back to America to call everyone fucked-up for not being empathetic.

    Dig?”

    Not really no, can you reference the calling everyone fucked up for not being empathic bit? Cause I think I clearly wrote, quoting: “Nobody’s asking you to give a fuck”. Isn’t that the same as saying, I don’t care if you don’t care, because I know you said that you don’t care if we care that you don’t care, but I’m saying I don’t if you don’t (either), y’know?

    And did you not read the whole beach segment in my two earlier posts? Because, by these assumptions, do the Haitians who live in shantytowns on the seaside – by the beach – and, God forbid, enjoy it from time to time, oblivious and uncaring of the poverty they live in? Or the ones around them, for that matter.

    My only concern is that you somewhat seem a bit butthurt about Haiti’s problems, not in the ‘they need humanitarian aid’ type of way, but in that ‘they’re fucked up, no aid is going to make a different’& ‘give ’em all the aid money in the world, and they won’t advance one bit’ type of way. What’s it to you? Why are you even writing essays about it and shit? Who asked for your opinion on the matter?

    But seriously, for someone who doesn’t give a fuck, you sure have done a good deal of research into the turmoil’s the country’s always faced (pre-earthquake, obviously), but let it go fam, half of the Haitian population living in Port-au-Prince has not thought of it that much.
    You don’t live in Brownsville, but let me give you an insight into human poverty, they don’t have time to think of that shit, they want to live, by any means. Why are the most fervant church attendees, the poorest ones? Why aren’t they at their local councilmen’s door, instead of begging invisible ‘saints’?

    @Schadenfreude

    No, he wanted to call me a hypocrite for enjoying my vacation, (which could have payed for a Haitian’s family’s well being for a year, apparently – YOUR WEBSITE HOSTING CAN PAY FOR A HAITIAN’S CHILD DAILY MEAL* – WHY ARE YOU LOOKING AT WHAT I DO?), and being uncompassionate while other Haitians had very little to eat, i.e. mud cookies.

    *not that it should, or ever would, but why attempt to call me out on it?

    And mud cookies are the shit, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.

    To Jennifer Hudson, I’m curious considering the closing line of your post “And mud cookies are the shit, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.

Is your white-guilt so terminal that you would allow yourself to be brutalized by negroes as a form of reparations?

    But boy o-boy, mud cookies sound fantastic. Great source of food AND building material! The Haitians are like Hansel and Gretel, but except for eating a house made out of candy, they could eat a house made out of mud!

  265. Milky says:

    And as for the Ted Bundy comment; how could I be called a sociopath for defending the victims of race based rape? I’m sure that you will still claim the interracial rape epidemic is be the fault of the Great White Satan (which would be an excellent name for a satanic white power glam metal band). One of you has already posted the “wouldn’t say that to my/their face(s)” debating tactic. So I’m going to to preemptively state that refrences to the negroes “muh dikk”- “fear” of “muh dikk”- “envy” of “muh dikk” etc is not an effective debating tactic and does not negate the reality of an interracial rape epidemic.

    the people accusing the author of racism are missing the point of the article.

Just because they were struck by a tragedy, the same people who wouldn’t have been able to locate Haiti on a map a year ago act like it should be the world’s number one priority to pull Haiti out of its own wreckage…

    And i’m not saying it’s bad to want to help. But unless you’re a member of an organization whose mission is to give aid to foreign countries in need, or else otherwise compelled to directly help Haiti, to try and produce the vaguest semblance of sympathy for the quake victims is either hypocrisy or a waste of time. people are killed, raped, and tortured all over the world, all the time…do you, the reader, give a fuck about that? Probably not. So why are we supposed to bear immeasurable sorrow for the Haitian people?

    Mark, you seem to acknowledge that it might be true that black people are, as a whole, less intelligent than white people, but you still say you don’t see the value in trying to prove that it is so. Maybe people are interested in proving that because they think it is true. In other words, because the truth matters, regardless of whether it is ugly or not.

    I don’t see why you don’t see the value in someone trying to prove something that might be true.

    I can think of a lot of reasons why there is value in trying to get to the truth of the black/white IQ gap. It might help dissipate the psychotic atmosphere that surrounds these discussions, for one thing.

    Jim goad was once a sad, sensitive little boy being damaged by his crazy mother’s backhand. He will go through life with no free-will but rather chained down by his numerous personality disorders. He needs to believe he’s better than everyone, but he’s just a sad sack white trash no talent goofball. He will spend in his entire life trying to be somebody until he realizes it’s a futile effort because the master and the servant have exactly the same fate. His parents should have aborted him. he was an unwanted child and now he’s basically just a comical monster who everyone can easily see through. He basically turned himself into a total joke in shit magnet and told the world basically just how pathetic he is. He compares himself to Hitler but Hitler would have gassed him with the rest of the psychopathological trash.

    “The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge”–Stephen Hawking

    Pat Robertson said it with brevity. Goad takes the long route because he is in love with his word. He doesn’t tire of his own writing and musings, which is why he’s on the Twitter, tweeting a superhighway of drivel.

    By Goad’s logic, his ass should have been fried long ago by the spirits and collective-whateverous of the native americans that his forefathers decimated, not to mention the blacks that they subjugated.

    See how annoying and silly those kind of generalizations, rhetoric, and racism sound?

  308. Jim Goad says:

    Hey—it’s “Joe Simms”!

    He also barged on this thread as “Craft Services,” “Joe Joe,” and “Chicken Rondelet.” And as “Joe Joe,” he “agreed” with “Chicken Rondelet,” while calling ME mentally ill. Keep agreeing with your alter egos, “Joe.” It lends a cachet of mental health to every word you type.

    Knowing that I’m able to check IP addresses, why do you schmucks take the multiple-screen-names-agreeing-with-other-multiple-screen-names route every time?

    Ahem—I’ve already stated that my French blood came by way of Canada, so that shoots your “subjugating blacks” allegation to smithereens. The rest of my “forefathers” came to this country as Irish and British slaves.

    The ineluctable fact is that the overwhelming quotient of Caucasians who came to the American colonies arrived not as oppressors, but in some form of bondage. At the peak of slavery in the American South, only six percent of whites owned slaves—that’s right, in the SOUTH at the slave trade’s PEAK, only one in fifteen whites was a slaveowner. As a percentage of whites overall in colonial America, we’re talking maybe two percent, tops.

    This compares to the two-thirds of colonial whites who arrived as slaves, “servants,” and convict laborers. Sorry to upset your white-guilt apple cart, but you’re the one making silly generalizations and fostering an “illusion of knowledge.”

  309. Joe Simms says:

    Apparently you didn’t read the last sentence of what I wrote. I purposely made generalizations sprinkled with racism to show how silly and annoying that approach is. That’s the approach you used in this article. But because you know some facts here and there you think your faulty logic and generalizations and crazy collective unconscious talk can hold up. How annoying is that?

    You can crunch numbers, but at the end of the day, if you say one nation (i.e. Haiti) deserves payback for what certain members of its population did many moons ago, then the same goes for your nation – whether or not your grand-grand-grand pappy was wheeling the whip or picking someone’s shit. And though you’ve traced back some of your British and Irish ancestors, that doesn’t mean they weren’t complicit in subjugating others, or that your more recent ancestors – who weren’t slaves – weren’t involved in shit like Jim Crow, lynchings, etc. I get the feeling you got quite a legacy of hate and hate-mongering in your family line, cause your kind of hate rarely sprouts out of nowhere.

    Oh, and 1 in 15 people is a lot of white people.

    But, hey, that’s more rhetoric on my part. My response is filled with my personal bias, my generalizations and my assumptions. It’s not so fun when someone else does it now, is it?

    Everybody knows sociopaths lack empathy. So why is anyone surprised that a diagnosed sociopath (Jim Goad) is writing articles like this? Sadly, this is ATTENTION. If a narcissist doesn’t get attention, they shrivel and die. Their entire self-esteem is dependent on what other people think about them. They lack empathy and are predatory. They have a binary, one-dimensional view of life. It’s either “narcissistic supply” or it’s not. And if you disagree with a narcissist, they will discredit you or look down on you to minimize their own suffering. We are all imbeciles to him. Without empathy, without humanity, compassion and understanding.. are you really a human being? You’re closer to a monster. And it doesn’t matter how high your IQ is- you will never understand compassion or love. And never feel it. How sad.

    “you will never understand compassion or love.”

    I understand it far more than you do. And if you are as whiny and bitter in real life as you are on here, I empathize with your father’s lack of empathy for you.

    “you think your faulty logic”

    Keep saying “faulty logic” over and over again. Say it so many times, you eventually believe it. I notice how you never point to any specific logical inconsistencies, though.

    “if you say one nation (i.e. Haiti) deserves payback”

    I didn’t say that. Point to anywhere in the article where I said that, and when you prove unable to do so, look up the term “straw man fallacy.”

    I don’t believe in primitive, biblical notions such as “justice,” “karma,” or “deserving payback.” Neither do I believe in “collective guilt.” Such notions are the domain of small minds.

    I stated that my sympathies tend toward people who look like me. If you ask the 96 percent of blacks who voted for Obama, you’ll see a similar tendency, but I’d bet you’re too much of a pussy to sweat any of them about it.

    “Oh, and 1 in 15 people is a lot of white people.”

    Yeah, and it was the same 1 in 15 who made serfs of the white underclass in Europe for roughly 1000 years before they even realized Africa existed.

    Say, perhaps, that 1 in 15 blacks in America is a felon…does the felonious stain translate to all blacks? Of course not. Neither does the slave-owning stain transfer to the majority of whites who came to the American colonies in bondage.

People don’t just rapidly change overnight. You think you’re superior in all ways, including compassion now? that’s laughable. You just wrote an article devoid of compassion against a bunch of hapless people who’ve just dealt with death.

The only reason he makes such “offensive” material like these articles and offensive “art” (I put that in quotations because it can hardly be called so) is to get people’s attention. The best way to get somebody’s attention is to act like a little child, jumping up and down, throwing a temper-tantrum in the middle of the store because you didn’t get to have any candy.

    I don’t really -hate- jim goad. That requires that I care. I don’t really care if he lives or dies. I just watch him from afar like he’s a naturalistic observation in the study of narcissisim and sociopathy. I mean , I always -read- about the disorders, dealt with a few people with them (minor cases) and have it pounded into my head. no empathy- interpersonally exploitaive- blah blah. But then you get to actually see one and it’s quite interesting. Especially when they’re so infected with it they can’t even see that they themselves are living like a drug addict. I find it really interesting. I also think that this article is accurate and most of the rational stuff Jim Goad writes is factual. It’s just seen through a distorted lense. Most people already know this stuff. Who didn’t know that Haiti is a shithole? Who didn’t know theyre beyond fucked up, the average IQ is probably in the 70s and they have basically no hope. Everybody knew that. But people still stepped in because of empathy, and Jim goad, i don’t believe is -trying-to be shocking. He’s just confused. Why are all these people helping and wasting their time on the shithole that is Haiti? While other people see the tragedy and wonder how they can fix it- Jim Goad sees the tragedy and doesn’t blink an eye or give a shit. And that’s fine. For the life of me I cant understand why anyone would get upset about someone else’s views. I may have come across offended or upset but truth be told I couldn’t care any less what he or anyone else thinks. As long as the person is not in power and doesn’t have any authority over my life- who gives a shit? My comments were merely left out of immaturity and boredom, but it is fascination with mental illness that keeps me coming back.

    I wish there really was a historical Haitian anti-white supremacist death squad that I could summon from the grave to sic on all of you people who “enjoyed” this “article.”

    I’m sure no one will learn from this but I have to try. All the below is taken from this AP article, so nothing “questionable”:

    n 1804 a third of the Haitians were killed in their uprising against exceptionally brutal slavery, where the average imported slave survived only 10 years, and those who displeased their masters were tortured to death.

    They became the first abolitionist country in the world, and were punished by an international embargo (led by the US) and the French demand that Haitians themselves should “compensate” French aristocrats for their lost “property.” The money demanded was to 150 million gold francs, about 250% of the total cost the US had just paid France to acquire nearly half the modern US.

    By the time of the slave results most of Haiti’s famous forests were gone, leading to the devastating erosion and extreme poverty that bedevils the country today.

  328. Jim Goad says:

    Thanks for the veiled and cowardly death wish, Keyboard Warrior.

    Yes, NOTHING the AP publishes is “questionable,” except maybe the fact that they’ve outsourced their workload and misspell every other word these days. And they certainly aren’t financed by Big Money, that’s for sure. They’re a surgically objective news source entirely untainted by bias of any kind…this is what you’re saying, n’est-ce pas?

    I’m not disputing the article you cited, but the question begs itself yet again: If a black-run nation—or just about EVERY black-run nation across the fucking globe, which tends to be the case—is so easily bamboozled, manipulated, oppressed, and squeezed dry by whitey, that seems less flattering to the black-run nation than it is to whitey. Do you enjoy casting blacks as innocent, helpless bumpkins who bear absolutely no personal responsibility for their fate and depend completely on the whims of sadistic Caucasians? If so, you believe in White Power far more than I do.

    Why do Asian nations seem FAR less vulnerable to the White Devil’s Tricknology? Ever spend so much as half a second honestly pondering that?

    Five minutes in Haiti, and you’d be screaming for an airlift.

    Here’s your challenge: Just answer the REPEATED question about where black rule improved living conditions for anyone, especially blacks, in measurable terms such as life expectancy, average income, medical care, violent-crime rates, etc. Liberia? Zimbabwe? Haiti? Sierra Leone? South “Murder Capital of the World” Africa? WHERE? I’m sincerely looking for concrete examples here, not another fetid blast of sanctimonious topic-avoidance from someone who’s been eating Leftist Sandwiches so long they can’t distinguish the forest from the deforested shithole.

    At least someone else had the decency to offer up Antigua, Barbados, and a smattering of other tiny Caribbean principalities, and I’m honest enough to have begun looking into conditions in those places to try and determine exactly what makes them different than Haiti and what seems like all of sub-Saharan Africa.

    You marched onto this site an hour ago, squatted down, and farted out a predictable cloud of Zinn-worship across several threads. I could dismantle every one of your flaccid fallacies as easily as I could crush a grape.

    But you, like EVERYONE who didn’t “enjoy” the article, are still are avoiding the question. So try answering it. Just TRY, that’s all. Stuff your Haitian “death squad” (which would probably smoke you, too, fool) up your tuchis and try answering the fucking question.

  329. Kool Karlo says:

    Nice pile of words.

  330. Quisp says:

    The author criticizes the AP, but earlier uses Yahoo news headlines as some sort of reference. LOL!!

    The author continues to pester readers for black-run governments that function just fine. They have provided him with examples. Why do they have to continue providing more? The author keeps asking because it makes him feel as if he hasn’t yet been disproven. But he has been.

    The author fails to factor in how many white and/or Asian countries succeeded only through continued financial aid by an empire seeking to serve its own interests.

    The author has never traveled through Ghana, or lived amongst the people there, and marveled at how, despite poverty, the children function and, more often than not, display a level of kindness and stability so rarely seen in a place like the U.S.

    The author doesn’t realize the irony that he is a product of what he considers to be a successful country. America produces a lot of people like him. And so perhaps the definiton of “success” needs to be re-examined. Is a country riddled with gun-toting, dissatisfied, malignant, angry citizens a success? Is a country run by self-serving corrupted officials successful? How so? Does the author want his child to grow up to be angry and bitter like he? To live in the angst that he has experienced throughout so much of his life? In the past two weeks in the U.S., a professor shot at her colleagues, a Texan flew a plane to a government building, and a middle school teacher shot at his peers…

    Some governments collapse and fuck up after a short period, some after a long. White and Black.

    The author is upset about financial aid to Haiti, but has the author written a diatribe or done anything about being a tax-paying citizen of a country that has been financially gutted thanks to “wars” created out of corruption? Has the author frothed at the mouth about that – on how the money of he and his fellow citizens has been used to fund murder? Or is he content to just drink his coke and eat his freedom fries and burp and make hostile, racist blog posts? Is that his happy freedom, his success?

    The author has never read Guns, Germs, and Steel because he would like to stay in his cocoon of ignorance and hate.

    If the author gets around to reading Guns, Germs, and Steel he will try and find ways (as he seems to do with anything that would decimate his rigid narrow thinking) to discount, ridicule and disregard the book.

    p.s. Howard Zinn rocks! (Just a little worship from a true fan).

    YOUR BIG QUESTION!!!

    Doesn’t matter whether a country is “black run” or not… how PC of you. Does the country work in the interest of it’s people, or not? In the countries you mention the dark-skinned figure heads continue to serve elite power.

    What about when anything improves in any black country… like economic growth in Botswana or the Dominican Republic… does that make “black leaders” good or bad there? Again, there are some actual policies to think about behind all the race crap that gives you wood (or half-wood more likely).

    I solved all these problems (yw) already in my socialist rant on Gavin’s article here: http://streetbonersandtvcarnage.com/blog/the-free-market-uncool-but-effective/comment-page-3/#comment-184087 (at least one of my comments has been allowed so far…)
