Reading List: May 2012
May 11th, 2012 by Unamused
I thought you might like to know what I’m reading on my awesome Kindle.
(None of these links give me money.)
- Gedaliah Braun, “Racism, Guilt and Self-Deceit”
Basically a collection of anecdotes about life in post-colonial Africa, especially South Africa; specifically, how Black Africans feel about their past, present and future. Also contains philosophical musings on the nature of racism, guilt and self-deceit. Informative and entertaining, hilariously raciss, but quite poorly edited. I recommend it anyway.
- Ilana Mercer, “Into the Cannibal’s Pot”
Lessons for America from Post-Apartheid South Africa. Just what it sounds like. All about how bad things got in South Africa after Mandela (the mass-murdering Marxist) came to power. A little too gung ho for Israel, and it shoehorns in a few too many disclaimers about how awful and raciss that awful raciss Apartheid system was (possibly at the publisher’s request). Still, I recommend it.
- Patrick J. Buchanan, “Suicide of a Superpower“
Will America Survive to 2025? I’ve already read three of Buchanan’s last four books (“The Death of the West,” “Where the Right Went Wrong,” and “Day of Reckoning”), and I enjoyed them all. This one is just as good. I can’t understand why Chapter 4, “The End of White America,” is so controversial. It’s pretty mild stuff — as far as a big ol’ raciss is concerned.
- Tom Wolfe, “The Bonfire of the Vanities”
I can’t believe we’re allowed to like this book. Don’t the Powers That Be realize how raciss it is? It’s all about race: Whites, Blacks and Jews fighting it out in New York City. Cops, lawyers, thugs, reporters, millionaires and race hustlers — it’s all quite funny and amazingly prescient.
I suspect Patrick Bateman of “American Psycho” was inspired by Sherman McCoy of “Bonfire.”
- H.G. Wells, “The Time Machine”
Wells imagined a future in which the human race split into two subspecies: savage, subterranean Morlocks and the pathologically peaceful Eloi on whom they prey. There’s an excellent reason some people (raciss people, that is) on the New Right characterize modern Whites, those designated victims of minority mischief, mayhem and murder, as “Eloi” (see here and here).
Anyway, it’s short, it’s free, and it’s a classic.
Soon to read
- Lothrop Stoddard, “The Rising Tide of Color Against White World-Supremacy”
At the end of the First World War, the author (a famous raciss White person — redundant, I know) predicted Japan’s rise to power and war with America, a second major war in Europe, the collapse of the Western empires (e.g., Britain giving up its colonies), and the rise of Islam as a threat to the West. Smart cookie.
Free for Kindle. I like cookies.
- Winfield H. Collins, “The Truth about Lynching and the Negro in the South”
In Which the Author Pleads That the South Be Made Safe for the White Race. Way back in 1918, Collins already perceived that the left (that is, the North) was fabricating an alternative history of raciss-ness in the South. This was his response.
- W.G. Sebald, “On the Natural History of Destruction”
“Sebald’s final work, which roused many Germans to anger, investigates the consequences of the huge civilian loss Germany endured during World War II.” I understand this book is raciss because it fails to blame the Germans, meaning all Germans (you know, the Bad Guys™?), for forcing America and Britain and the Soviet Union (you know, the Good Guys™?) to massacre them at the end of the Second World War.
