In February, OD celebrated Black History Month 2012 by shining a bright light on how freedom has failed in post-colonial Africa.
The purpose of going to the Dark Continent to celebrate Black History Month 2012 was to set the Black Undertow in an international context as a worldwide threat to Western civilization.
In March, OD resumed our coverage of the “War Against White People” where we had left off in January. Then the Trayvon Martin story made national headlines and we have been covering the aftermath ever since.
OD’s traffic has exploded since mid-March. April 2012 has been our biggest month ever. It was obviously the right decision to let current events set the agenda while White people were burning up the search engines looking for answers.
In April, OD has been celebrating Confederate History Month 2012. I promised Connie Chastain on Facebook that I would discredit the SCV myth of the “Rainbow Confederacy.” The Google search results shows that our coverage was without peer on the internet. We have succeeded in moving the center of gravity in the Southern movement closer to its own racialist ideological wellsprings.
Moving forward … barring some unforeseen turn of events like the eruption of Race War 2012, I want to go where I had planned to go before Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman made their big splash onto the national scene.
In May, OD is planning to venture into Haiti, the Caribbean, and South America to explore why freedom has failed in that region, and to investigate why it seemingly hasn’t failed in other areas.
In his commentary on Derb’s firing at National Review, Mark Steyn asked a question that has been gnawing at me for years: Why is Haiti Haiti and Barbados Barbados? It occurs to me that we know a lot more about black people in Africa than black people in the Caribbean and South America.
Well, that should be qualified: we know quite a lot about how freedom has failed in Haiti, but black people are scattered throughout the West Indies and Brazil, and their existence in all these other countries (how many Americans can pinpoint Barbados and Guadeloupe on a map?) remains something of a mystery to us.
This little dark spot of collective ignorance affords us the opportunity for another profitable adventure abroad coupled with a chance to a respond to a challenge to traditional racial stereotypes.
