‘Black Racism’*: A Conversation With Erik Rush

A woman accused you of not being sufficiently concerned about “your people” who were dying all over the world. You corrected her by telling her that blacks were indeed dying in Africa, mainly, because they were killing each other. You recommended that she decamp to that continent where she would be appreciated as a sex slave or as lunch.

Erik is a WND columnist, and the author of “Negrophilia From Slave Block to Pedestal – America’s Racial Obsession.”

ILANA MERCER: I would have liked to read more about your family in “Negrophilia.” What is it about your background that accounts for your clarity on matters racial in our country?

ERIK: I believe that since my sister and I were of mixed race, my parents believed it was important to instill in us the sort of values that would help us to overcome any derision we might face being of mixed race, and to treat others equitably regardless of their ethnicity. Their efforts to promote a reasonably healthy self-image was part of it, as well as enabling us to make value judgments on those who did treat others inequitably based on race. “Discrimination” became a “bad word” during the Civil Rights Movement, but we are, in truth, being discriminating when we intellectually sort people based on their values and worldview as much as one might using skin color as a determinant. Of course, the first is a good thing; the last isn’t. I guess I took to heart the values we were raised with; on the occasions I did run into discrimination or bigotry, my reaction was one of defensiveness or even amusement, but I never felt victimized.
