Satyagraha Means Nonresistance

John Derbyshire, who wrote a good book on the history of mathematics, is spreading the same old manure on the Unz Review

As always with social topics, it’s a question of numbers and proportions. Think of it like this: A man is walking along dragging a sack behind him. If the man is large and the sack small, it’s a nuisance but he can make progress. A small man dragging a large sack is, however, severely encumbered. White populations of course have members with low scores on behavior, intelligence, and personality, but not so many that the more capable whites can’t “carry” them. Smart and well-socialized blacks, by contrast, are numerically far fewer in proportion to the great sullen lumpen-negretariat they drag behind them. . . . For most whites, most of the time, that great sullen mass is well out of sight.

Well, and let us suppose that one of the sullen mass were to attack you, Dear Reader, in some way. The spiritually advisable course would be to accept it in good part. As a matter of fact, you’re probably more likely to be attacked by a member of the sullen classes who is white. Unless you’re black, when of course Dear Reader your spiritual acceptance is tinged with perhaps a little more irony than our bourgeois brethren can manage.
