Wypipo: Standing on the Shoulders of Slaves

Whites, more specifically “wypipo,” are the beneficiaries of the settler-colonialist system that created the American Empire — the exceptionalist wing of the “special relationship” that a kinship with British imperialism taught to their former colonies in North America. The colonized learn how to become colonizers. Wypipo permeate every cell of that imperial body politic.

Old empires never die, they just pass their skills on to their progenitors. Today, the sun never sets on the American Empire. Are they blessed by a god who just seems to like them better than peoples of another color?

“Reverse racism” is con artistry, a notion that whites are being victimized by non-white populations, a conceit held by many whites — wherever they place their boots on the ground.

Western Civilization is a story of how European empires ruthlessly plundered darker-skinned “savages” who had been living for countless centuries in a give-and-take balance with neighboring tribes — a fine tapestry of diverse cultures. Colonialism is thievery, those who benefit from its system are receivers of stolen goods. Slavers are thieves whose crimes are cast as virtues. They provided their logistics expertise and the venture capital to seed the dreams of ambitious white power brokers — those from the right (white) families, and the right (white) schools, and the right (white) European ancestry.

Technologically more advanced imperial forces use an imbalance of might to waste at will for advantage, to subdue and conquer, to claim every available plot of land in the name of various European states, to load ships with plunder, to drop off the wealth back home, then to proceed clockwise along favorable ocean currents to the coast of Africa, where they could take on valuable human resources for the advancement of white destiny. Complete the circular trade route and repeat, ad nauseam.

Who are the ADOS?

American Descendants of Slavery are uniquely branded peoples. They did not immigrate to the Americas, they were absconded by the usual thievish characters who knew how to get a return on investment. Free hard labor does wonders for a bottom line if you can live with Faustian bargains. What matters is what you can get away with, not whether you redress injustice as deep as centuries of slavery. How much of an ROI did that accrue to ADOS? A trick question, because injustice continues unabated at all levels of society. From neighborhood to nation.

Justification for the white-supremacist system — the deathblood of our body politic — were set into law by the framers of the Constitution. a legal instrument written by wypipo for the preservation of proper cultural traditions and values. It defines blacks as fractional citizens — sworn upon a Bible that justified the corporations favored by the framers. SCOTUS contains its share of self-proclaimed “Originalists” — those who decide legal precedents based upon what the all-white framers of the Constitution had in mind when their “justice” system was created. Originalists such as Antonin Scalia and his replacement justice Neil Gorsuch lock their focus on the days and ways of the 18th Century. Not surprisingly, those decisions have always kept ADOS subservient citizens who are always thwarted if they are not willing to part with their soul. Each Constitutional Amendment that ostensibly purports to redress injustice contains language that offers a recourse clause for hegemonists of one color.

Thanks for reading.

  1. ‘When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said ‘Let us pray.’ We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land’ …’classic’ quote from Desmond Tutu, South Africa.

  2. I lived in South Africa for 20 years and did almost nothing to correct the flagrant violations of human dignity. But today things are changing. Devices were developed to stamp out Malaria and other diseases in Africa I was privileged to be part of the teams. Today hundreds of villages are electrified enabling a clinic with a refrigerator for inoculations. Africa sits on a huge water table so they now also have water pumps driven by the same solar panels to bring taps supplying water 24/7 to the villages. All this is remotely monitored from Tel-Aviv. A lamp in a school burns out a trained maintenance depot is notified and the lamp replaced. Thus huge program was started and run by a young Israeli woman. She used to work for a US company that bought cloth from Africa. She visited the villages to keep workshops open. She decided one day to make a difference and that is an under statement. She said she was impressed with the people of Israid and so started the change.

  3. Here’s a paragraph from Dr. Steve Best’s latest post, somewhat relevant. “The past reveals our dark history of genocide, overkill, and boundless plunder, and we are now pushing countless other species to oblivion at an alarming rate. Since the 1970s, in just the last half-century, humans have reduced wild animal populations 60%, and within the next few decades we will obliterate an additional million plant and animal species. To indicate the extent to which one species has usurped the planet on its unending path of destruction, 96% of all mammals on earth are now humans and cattle.”

    The discovery of what people are, literally, makes it increasingly difficult for me to be sympathetic to anyone’s race or culture, past, present, and future. Perhaps most of all, our race and culture; I’ll hand you that. Nonetheless, we are all cut from the same DNA regardless of color and social status. We all have a Hitler in us. Every damn last one of us. The trick is in control. Self-governance and I mean governing our tyrannical urges which are the very crux of veganism, the very idea of anarchy: Freedom for all and not just the speciests, which I have zero sympathies for. You might appreciate a recent post on Off Guardian, Reclaiming Your Inner Fascist: https://off-guardian.org/2019/11/23/reclaiming-your-inner-fascist/

    Thanks for writing.

    1. Fascism has been festering in the soil of this continent since Columbus. The genocide of each and every tribe began when word of endless riches spread like wildfire through the empires of Europe — white-skinned, forked-tongue systems offered no quarter, they took few prisoners. They deliberately destroyed entire ecosystems along the way, decimated Plains tribes by nearly driving the Bison to extinction, they actually succeeded in exterminating the Carrier Pigeon for its high fast-food value.
      ADOS have always been the victims of this fascist spirit, but I see no fascism among the ADOS. I do hear many falsehoods that play into the hands of our fascist overlords, who are 99.99% white. Zero sympathies for them too.
      Thanks for both links, Peter. As always, thanks for reading!

  4. ‘Wypipo.’ What a great new word. Our system of governance could use an overhaul. Those who run things (at the government level) really should be more representative of those they serve. I don’t know how or why it continues to be a game if power — those who have over those who don’t.

    On a refreshing note, it was good to see ‘Mr. Robinson’s Neighborhood’ with Eddie Murphy back on SNL. Wypipo sure need a good slap in the face with some uncomfortable humor.

    Enjoy the holidays, Bill!

    1. Hi Shannon, thanks for the kind comment. “No taxation without representation” seems to have morphed into “Negative taxation for the overrepresented.” The ugly tradition of gerrymandering was given the SCOTUS stamp of approval in June of this year, voting rights are denied at every possible moment — before, during, and after every election.
      Good on Eddie Murphy there, the most privileged are also the most easily discomfited.
      Wishing fine holidays to all you guys!
      And how the heck is it that 2010 was a decade ago? 🙂
