The fiction of "race" was glommed onto by early Anglo-American leaders as a useful tool for keeping the lower orders at each other's throats, rather than uniting together against their real enemy, "The Man." Even Richard Nixon (probably a saintly figure in the eyes of Chittum's fans) LIKED the idea of affirmative action because he knew it would further fan the flames of white resentment over threatening, "job-stealing" minorities.
There's no ethnic/racial war coming, but there HAS been a class war going on, ever since this country broke away from England for mostly financial reasons. Look at the tremendous rise in interracial relationships as evidenced by the recent census--most Americans LOVE Tiger Woods, in part because he embraces his multiethnic heritages. Chittum is another paranoid fantasy-weaver who's been brainwashed into overlooking the realities of class conflict; when ethnic/racial violence gets worse in this country, look around for economic strain enforced on the participants from above--it's always there. Why, for instance, would whites worry about blacks and others taking their jobs through affirmative action unless there weren't enough jobs to go around? Why, to give a more specific example, did two white Detroit autoworkers in the 1980s go after and kill a supposedly Japanese man (Vincent Chin) when they lost their jobs, rather than "The Man" above them who had mismanaged their company?
Oh, and how is race a "fiction" when you can look around and see Hispanics, blacks, Asians, and other "races"? For one thing, think about all the mixing that's already occurred--demographers and others estimate that 80% of black Americans have white blood (most whites don't know whether they do or not, as such "shameful" mixings in the family tree were typically hushed up--also, many "blacks" with "white" blood have passed into whiteness, marrying whites and making "white" families). And how can you be sure you're looking at a "Hispanic" person when the group includes people of so many different genetic types? And what does it mean to say Asian when China alone has so many different genetic types and features within it, or when Asian Indians differ so much from other Asian groups, and also include many other types? These realities aren't all that complicated, but they certainly counter the simplistic "white" versus "colored" worldview of Chittum and his fans. A mixed America will continue to mix more and more, instead of breaking down into divisive, hateful camps, despite the efforts and desires of our moneystuffed leaders.
See Michael Moore's insightful and hilarious film, _The Big One_, if you want a more realistic vision of what's tearing this country apart. And read Omi and Winant's _Racial Formations_, or Ted Allen's _The Invention of the White Race_, or Ignatiev's _How the Irish Became White_, or Brodkin's _How the Jews Became White Folks_, or so many others that show so clearly how silly we've been to let the idea of race occupy so much of our time and energy.
The book's descriptions of the projected future sound almost familiar today in 2006. But surprisingly, the book was written 10 years ago. So, its projections (up to this point) are right on track. Its future projections should be taken seriously.
The book shows numerous parallels between the situation developing in America and the situation in Bosnia and other places. The parallels are chilling.
The most glaring omission is Islam. The author mentions Islam several times and recognizes its militaristic and vicious propensities. For instance, he says that the government gave 20 million dollars to the "Nation of Islam" to try to buy it off. But he did not foresee 9/11 and the formidable plans now obviously in place. How this will affect the other developments described here--the Chicano domination of New Mexico, Arizona and California; and the Black domination of the Deep South and Southeastern seaboard--is unclear. Certainly, there will be no White safe zone for whites to flee to. And in the showdown between Islamists and Blacks and Chicanos (and Whites if they choose to fight), it is unclear who will win.
The author rightly says that civil war can be averted only if certain changes are made: (1) outlaw the teaching of anti-Americanism in schools and colleges, (2) end racist affirmative action, (3) deport all illegal aliens and stop further immigration from third-world countries. Since none of these is likely to occur, the author ends the book with several chapters on how citizens can prepare themselves to increase their individual chances of survival. If you want to know what saddled America with these three seemingly insane conditions, read While America Sleeps: How Islam, Immigration and Indoctrination Are Destroying America From Within, another unpopular "incorrect" book that lets more than a few cats out of the bag.
Why is this subject taboo? As soon as anyone starts talking about citizens defending themselves, someone starts screaming about vigilantes. But there is a difference between (a) vigilantes and (b) vicious acts done by vigilantes. "Vigilante" means groups who keep a vigil, who keep watch. Neighborhood crime watch groups are vigilantes. There is nothing wrong with citizens meeting together, making contingency plans and stockpiling food, munitions and other supplies. (The movie "Red Dawn", if you substitute Islamists for the Russians, is a plausible picture of near-future America.)
Self-interest dictates that every individual should read this book. Indeed, your life may depend on it.
Our multicultural society has worked and it will work once the new immigrant groups assimilate into ours. However, he does have a point that some of these immigrant groups resist assimilation.
If Obama wins and we have a super majority of Democrats, we will become a socialist nation--by Executive Order.
If Obama loses, riots are going to take place--and possibly the beginning of a civil war.
I am a McCain-Palin supporter and many of my friends are Obama supporters. In all my discussions with them, they cannot tell me what Obama means by change. I tell them the change he is talking about is socialism.
They are deaf and dumb about Obama. Facts do not have any room in their thought process. And any questions I bring up about Obama's association with Rev. Wright, Ayers, Acorn they put their hands over their ears.
Civil War Two? Probably sooner than 2020.
