And remember We rescued you from Pharaoh's people, who afflicted you with the worst of penalties, who slew your male children and saved alive your females: in that was a momentous trial from your Lord. —Holy Qur'an, Surah (Chapter) 7, Verse 141

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan said that “Land is the basis of economic development, economic freedom, and business.” If this is true—and it is—the Homestead Act is probably the most rewarding affirmative action program American Whites have ever given themselves. Beginning in 1865, 250 million acres of land were given away to White families—many of whom had actually participated in the Southern Confederate rebellion against America—as much as 640 free acres for each White family (each acre being about the size of a football field). European immigrants were great beneficiaries of this “legal” land snatch, while the Black ex-slaves who had actually worked that land for generations—and the Indians who owned it—were kept far away from this unprecedented giveaway. Today, more than three-fourths of White families own a home. This important asset allows Whites to invest in their children's education, cars, marriages, businesses, and first-home down payments.
Labor Union Movement
The union movement of the late 1800s has probably done more to destroy Black progress than any other White affirmative action initiative, yet it is almost totally invisible in the written histories of Blacks in America. “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Vol. 2,” proves that the union
Even before the Civil War, enslaved Blacks held a virtual monopoly of almost all labor, including the skilled crafts and trades. They were so dominant in the workforce that some of the most racist Whites, unable to compete, became abolitionists just to break up the Black labor monopoly. Moreover, many of these Blacks were the major breadwinners for the families that enslaved them. Some states, seeking to give the White man an advantage, passed laws prohibiting the hiring of Blacks—slave or free—when a White man could be found to do the work. These were the first recorded affirmative action laws in American history, entirely for the benefit of the under-qualified, lower-skilled White man.
The most powerful union leader in America was Samuel Gompers (a Jew), who led the American Federation of Labor (AFL) in its earliest stages. Under Gompers, AFL unions systematically and violently forced Black workers out of the occupations they once dominated. He wrote: “Caucasian civilization will serve notice [to Blacks] that its uplifting process is not to be interfered with in any way.” A common union expression was “Never let a nigger pick up a tool.”
By the turn of the century, the Black man—once the predominant worker in America—was locked in the lowest wage labor or was totally jobless, forcing Black women into the job market as farm workers and domestics in White homes. The higher wages of the unionized White male relieved White women of hard labor, and provided them with the leisure time and financing for the development of art, literature, education, and culture.
Asian Exclusion Acts
In 1890, the U.S. government, pushed by the unions, passed a law excluding all Asians from coming to America! San Francisco congressman Julius Kahn (a Jew) authored the racist legislation, a.k.a. the Kahn Exclusion Act, telling Congress that “the duplicity and the trickery of the Chinese themselves made it necessary.” At the same time, Congress made European immigration much easier. By doing so Whites protected their commerce from superior competition and protected White workers from the more efficient and industrious Asians. White Europeans flooded into the American west coast to violently attack the Asians and to seize their place in the job market. Those Asians that remained were subject to a Jim Crow law and viciously racist propaganda tailored just for them.
Plessy v. Ferguson
So, by design, there was no incentive for Blacks to keep, save, or invest money. Under such conditions Blacks prudently develop a spend-it-as-you-get-it culture that saves little and invests in nothing. Blacks work for low wages, and then on Friday they return it all to White retailers, because the system severely punishes any other Black fiscal behavior. In America, ruthless financial exploitation of the struggling ex-slave was actually the law of the land. And this made Blacks veritable sitting ducks for the immigrant retailers (many of them Jewish) who came to America not penniless—but with centuries of entrepreneurial experience and with the support of entrenched family business networks. This is what White immigrants mean when they say that in America, “the streets are paved with gold.” The economic targeting of Blacks became the most well-travelled route to White wealth—a method that is still very much in force today.
The Plessy v. Ferguson ruling also turbo-charged the so-called “White Supremacy” political movement that swept America which targeted “Negro domination” and approved every means necessary to keep Blacks from voting and from holding political office. In 1923, Sen. William C. Lankford of Georgia made the following remarks from the floor of Congress to great applause from his colleagues: “I truly believe in the supremacy of the White race. I believe the White race gave us the greatest possible form of government. No other race could have added to it. This government of the White man was not helped when the Negro began voting. He will not make it better in the future….I believe that when this planet was created the Almighty personally turned it over to the Whites.” This rhetoric, unashamedly spewed within the most hallowed halls of the U.S. government, confirmed that the philosophy of America's power structure was indistinguishable from the beliefs and mission of the Ku Klux Klan. Today in 2011 the U.S. senate is a veritable sea of Caucasians.
Pres. Woodrow Wilson
During his White House tenure from 1913 to 1921, Pres. Woodrow Wilson made racial segregation United States policy. This included the wholesale firing of Blacks in government positions throughout America and replacing them with Whites. One day in 1913, for instance, the Atlanta postmaster simply fired 50 Black messengers and gave their jobs to Whites. When questioned he said that the Whites had families to support, though he actually needed no reason at all. Between the unions and private sector discrimination, Wilson's ethnic cleansing of the government workforce further relegated Blacks to agricultural and domestic labor.
Public Education Policy
Having been president of Princeton University, Woodrow Wilson was the most intelligent of the U.S. presidents, but his public education policy was categorically wicked. He declared: “We want a class of persons to have a liberal education, and we want another class of persons, a very much larger class of necessity in every society, to forego the privilege of a liberal education and fit themselves to perform specific difficult manual tasks.” That “very much larger” class consisted of Blacks, whose public schooling over the last century ensured that Black students fulfilled this designated inferior role. The curriculum for Whites in the Birmingham, Alabama, public school system (beyond the three Rs) included Latin, history, geology, astronomy, rhetoric, physiology, and algebra, while education for Blacks focused solely on “manual training.” The city's “colored” school system, incidentally, was created and controlled by the city's rabbi, who was also a B'nai B'rith official.
Farmers Home Administration (FHA)
Even though Blacks were concentrated in agriculture, the FHA gave almost all of its farm subsidies to White farmers to make up for low cotton prices. Black-owned farms fell dramatically from about 900,000 in 1930 when the program was established, to 682,000 in 1939. Many of the Whites used the money to modernize by buying tractors and evicting Black sharecroppers. Congress amended the law to say that half the money should go to these tenant farmers, but the White farm owners simply stole their checks.
The federal government has only recently agreed to pay $1.2 billion to 70,000 Black farmers who were denied FHA loans that White farmers routinely received. The evidence of systematic racism was so overwhelming that the government did not even dispute it. Blacks suffered the massive loss of their agricultural sector, while giant White agribusinesses gobbled up the spoils. Thousands of Blacks lost land and were forced out of farming.
White Liberals' Mis-Guidance & Treachery
Even though Blacks had been socially engineered out of economic development, a White Jew named Joel Spingarn—the first chairman of the NAACP—created a philosophy specifically for Blacks that he called “non-economic liberalism,” which ultimately became known as the “civil rights movement.” Jews had built their entire community infrastructure through an economic strategy, yet their promotion of this anti-economic method for Blacks showed that the “help” that Jews offered was really just a “hypocritical trick” designed to keep Blacks forever on the consumer side of the American cash register. Jews became the richest single ethnic group in the history of America by targeting the Black dollar, whilst Blacks, following this Jewish liberal “friendship,” have become a “permanent underclass.”
According to declassified documents, it turns out that Spingarn—the leader of the NAACP—was also a paid undercover agent for the United States Army. Spingarn and “a small unit of undercover agents” were seeking “proof of subversion” and opened 100,000 pieces of mail a week and monitored the messages being promoted in Black publications. It is no mystery why the NAACP under Spingarn was at the forefront of the government attack on the Honorable Marcus M. Garvey, the great advocate of building a strong Black economy. They actually ran and promoted a vicious campaign they called “Garvey Must Go!”
Hollywood and Racial Propaganda
The Negroes are shown as horrible brutes, given over to beastly excesses, defiant and criminal in their attitude towards the Whites, and lusting for White women. Some of the scenes are plainly morbid and repulsive. —a review of Birth of a Nation, in Moving Picture World, 1915
Hollywood produced a plethora of popular films that promoted White supremacy as the national creed and clearly articulated for European immigrants a common enemy—Blacks. The very first blockbuster movie, Birth of a Nation (1915), actually paid homage to the Ku Klux Klan. Financed and produced by Boston-based Jewish investors, it revived the terrorist organization, which grew to its largest size ever.
Arguably, much of the White resistance to Black rights is a reaction to the consistently negative and despicable Black images portrayed in film. The anti-Jewish propaganda films of Adolph Hitler are often cited as the method by which he won the support of the German people for the Jewish Holocaust. In America, the resurgent KKK used Birth of a Nation to recruit new members, and Louis B. Mayer (a Jew) started MGM with the profits he made from the film's distribution. He and others continued to produce a chain of demeaning anti-Black, anti-Indian, anti-Asian, anti-Arab, and anti-Latino films.
Next: Continuing the list of White affirmative action programs and policies that deceptively “earned” the White man his “superiority.”
