John Wayne: “I Believe In White Supremacy”

The media is going crazy with faux outrage over this:

“Wayne was also asked about educator/activist Angela Davis and discrimination. He responded, “With a lot of blacks, there’s quite a bit of resentment along with their dissent, and possibly rightfully so. But we can’t all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks. I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.”

Lewis then shot back at Wayne, asking if the actor was equipped to judge “which blacks are irresponsible and which of their leaders inexperienced.” Wayne responded, “It’s not judgment. The academic community has developed certain tests that determine whether the blacks are sufficiently equipped scholastically. But some blacks have tried to force the issue and enter college when they haven’t passed the tests and don’t have the requisite background.”

“I don’t know why people insist that blacks have been forbidden their right to go to school,” continued Wayne. “They were allowed in public schools wherever I’ve been. Even if they don’t have the proper credentials for college, there are courses to help them become eligible. But if they aren’t academically ready for the step, I don’t think they should be allowed in. Otherwise, the academic society is brought down to the lowest common denominator.

“… There has to be a standard. I don’t feel guilty about the fact that five or 10 generations ago these people were slaves. Now, I’m not condoning slavery. It’s just a fact of life, like the kid who gets infantile paralysis and has to wear braces so he can’t play football with the rest of us. I will say this, though: I think any black who can compete with a white today can get a better break than a white man. I wish they’d tell me where in the world they have it better than right here in America.”

There is so much truth in these comments.

1.) First, Jim Crow was a Southern system of race relations, and most of America had been integrated for generations before segregation ended in the 1960s. W.E.B. DuBois, an early 20th century civil rights leader, graduated from Harvard in 1895.

2.) Second, John Wayne’s position was mainstream in the early 20th century. The British, for example, saw their African colonies as “trusteeships.” They were educating and civilizing black Africans to prepare them for eventual independence. The famous African explorer David Livingstone summed it up in his formula: Christianity, commerce, civilization. Rudyard Kipling called it “The White Man’s Burden.” British colonialism in Africa was more paternalistic than malicious and most African colonies were a financial drain. In fact, the British dealt with the Boers more ruthlessly than any African tribe.

3.) Third, the mainstream consensus used to be that it was reckless and unwise to grant African colonies independence that were unprepared for it. Churchill made this point to FDR. Europeans in Africa abolished slavery and cannibalism. They introduced Christianity. They introduced air travel, railroads, electricity, hospitals, sanitation, public health measures against malaria within a span of less than 75 years, etc. They build modern cities like Leopoldville and Stanleyville in the Congo.

4.) Fourth, the early 20th century was a time of relative peace and rapid social and economic development in Africa, especially compared to Europe and East Asia which went through World War I and World War II. After World War II, the US and Soviet Union both embraced anti-imperialism in order to expand their spheres of influence in the Third World at the expense of the European powers. They wanted the British and French out of Africa so that they could move in.

5.) Fifth, the combination of decolonization, anti-racism, political correctness and independence led to disaster in nearly every country in sub-Saharan Africa. The only possible exception is Botswana which has wisely managed its wealth from diamond mining. Most African states were barely prepared for independence and even those that had developed a native intelligentsia and some degree of Western institutions like Ghana destroyed themselves pursuing Afrocentric Marxism. Thrusting independence on African states that were grossly unprepared for it created nothing but misery for the vast majority of several generations of Africans who ended up under “big men” like Mobutu and Mugabe.

6.) Sixth, the same thing had happened in Haiti and Liberia long before it overwhelmed the rest of sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean. It is worth noting that the states where “white supremacy” lasted the longest like Guadeloupe and Martinique or Barbados and South Africa led to a higher standard of living for blacks. Compare Haiti to Guadeloupe and Martinique.

7.) Finally, it eventually got so bad in sub-Saharan Africa that Europeans intervened to put a stop to the civil wars in Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast and Liberia, tried to stop the clan violence in Somalia, split South Sudan from Sudan, intervened in Darfur, rescued Ethiopia and the entire Sahel from famine, fed the Hutu refugees who fled from the Rwandan genocide, etc. The UN has more or less taken over Haiti. Sub-Saharan Africa would be vastly better off today if it had remained pacified under colonialism until it had learned to become prosperous like Hong Kong.

“Woke” journalists are condemning John Wayne for pointing out the obvious truth that sub-Saharan Africa was grossly unprepared for independence. It was their romantic attitudes that destroyed Congo, Zimbabwe, Somalia, Guinea-Bissau and lots of African states.

  1. We should never have entered Africa. Look at the place now- we feed and medicate them resulting in exploding birthrates, but because their standard of living is so low, a lot of them
    end up in the West and become our problem.
    We should just stop babying them, close our borders to them and let the population levels settle into a normal level.
    Time to leave the equals alone.

    • Whites LOVE niggers for some reason. Everywhere we go we drag these people along with us shortly thereafter. Why? They haven’t done a single thing to help us. In fact, my whole life they have only added misery. If it’s “hate” for me to recognize the net losses these people have added to my life then call me hateful! I wished our ancestors castrated them when they brought them over. It’s going to be them or us in the final race war and it’s looking strongly like us.

      • @Professional

        Yes you’re correct and right on point there- they contribute nothing to any place they reside, yet expect everything back in return. Whenever they’re in the West, it serves only them, not us-and I’ve referenced many times, the many ways they’re a burden on us like the parasites they’ll always be.
        They see us as evil enough to hate and claim victim points from, but good enough to live under and take advantage of. Our misplaced goodwill is endlessly used against us, and it makes me sick.

    • Don’t worry, once the Chinx start colonizing Africa the niggers won’t be a problem any longer. Whitey was far too indulgent and forgiving towards them. But the Orientals aren’t encumbered by bourgeois Christian sentimentality.

      • @Spahn

        I can just see many whites thinking to themselves right now- just let them have eachother. We don’t want to be involved. One day the nogs may ask us for help if the chingdings are coming down too hard on them,or it ccould be a match made in heaven. Either way, we should just keep our noses out of it.
        Looking after, and advancing the West, is all we should be doing. Outside of that, who gives a shit ?!

  2. Cities run by blacks are rundown hellholes: Detroit, Baltimore (Z-Man’s “Lagos on the Chesapeake”), etc. Whites have saved blacks from themselves in Africa, as you mentioned above. Left to their own devices, they almost always spiral into failed states and cities, corruption, and tribal barbarism. They’re generally less intelligent, less capable, and much more prone to violent crime.

    What benefit is it for us to live around them? Let them try to build the Wakandas they insist Whites have stolen, without our interference and assistance. Their fantasies will turn into bloody dysfunction in short order.

  3. John Wayne was a smart man. And the kicker is that most Whites actually feel the same way inside, even the liberal ones… but are too brow-beaten, guilt-ridden and peer-pressured to just admit it. Instead, they virtue-signal the exact opposite of how they actually feel, which is the most infuriating thing.

  4. The missing and essential truth is that we needed and need to separate. Racial hierarchies, like Communism, have FAILED every time they have been tried, from the ancient times to the present. Something about human nature at work. That’s what Wayne forgot to say.

  5. Hey Hunter,
    I like your analysis of European colonialism, as being more beneficial to Negroes than to the White countries doing so. Why did we bother doing it? Sigh.
    I would politely dissent on John Wayne. I hold that Wayne was part of the continual liberalization of America: extremely liberal by Antebellum Southern standards, slightly liberal for his time, and very conservative by current degenerate standards. Even your quote here states that Wayne’s “White supremacy” would end when “the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility”.
    Both personally and in his movies, Wayne demonstrated that he was not a White separatist by any means, but a CivNat. I gave my full take on this at my blog GKS last year, so I will not repeat it all here. Below is the link if you are interested in my take.

  6. Everyone knows my race, the White race, is the superior race. White Genocide derives from non White envy and covetousness which devolves into downright hatred. Jews and self hating Whites are always fanning the flames of discontent.

    Jews are an open enemy but White self hatred is sick.

    • If they are an “open enemy”, why do most whites view them as almost sacred? I’d say they’ve done a pretty good job at being a stealthy enemy.

  7. Song of Solomon 5:10 My beloved is White and Ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand.

    1 Samuel 16:12 And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was Ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the Lord said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.

  8. “I like your analysis of European colonialism, as being more beneficial to Negroes than to the White countries doing so. Why did we bother doing it? Sigh.”

    Misguided paternalism. Go read the text of Kipling’s The White Man’s Burden. The drive to “civilize the savage” used to be a very big thing amongst the Western nations.

    In hindsight, the colonial powers should have gone in, taken what they wanted and left. Misguided paternalism is a failing we are still paying for over a century on.

  9. John Wayne’s comments about Blacks (American Blacks or the entire population of Black Africa?) sound fair and reasonable, like something Rhodesian leader Ian Smith might have said around the same time – that he/they didn’t hate Blacks, Black African Americans/Black Africans but they just weren’t quite ready yet for full equality with Whites and full democratic voting rights with majority rule etc.

    This sounded reasonable at the time but were/are as we know just impossible and impractical and suicide for our people – suicide if we allow the entire populations of Black Haiti or the Congo, Nigeria to move in to any White nation, White society they want to go provided they get some education or convert to one of our Christian church denominations.

    I have a 30 year relation with Whites in the Church of Latter Day Saints/Mormons and the LDS church is now – yep going off to the Black African Congo to convert all the Blacks to LDS Mormon Christianity. My LDS friends insist that the LDS Church position is not to bring every single Black Congo convert to the United States, but in practice….

    They all want to come!

    John Wayne’s view on race and politics in ~ 1971 reflects the failed Conservative sand box that George Lincoln Rockwell so savagely attacked as 50 years of failure.

    Just look how Identitarian, nationalists in Japan or Israel look at these issues take a world view.

    Think anybody important in Japan or Israel wants to allow tens of millions of Black Americans, Black Africans to simply move to Japan or Israel and have full equality full voting rights provided they achieve some level of education in Japanese or Hebrew and they learn the Japanese or Israeli constitution?

    Think anybody of importance in Japan or Israel would waste virtually all their $ national defense and get 50,000 Japanese and Israel casualties to ensure that Vietnam achieve a non Communist “Democracy” with free markets, private property and Christianity?

    Sometimes I wonder if our people really deserve to survive when our leaders like John Wayne and Ronald Reagan were/are so stupid.

    I wonder if John Wayne was at all jew wise as he just refers to Hollywood “moguls” who once made gangster movies but then decided not to because it wasn’t good for America or really good for the movie business. Richard Nixon and Rev. Billy Graham were Jew wise.

    John Wayne did marry (at least) one Whiter Hispanic woman and his children came out very White. How did John Wayne feel about Mexicans? His movie “The Alamo” wan’t any good.

    One of his last movies “The Green Beret” has not aged well at all – comes off almost as bad as the second Rambo movie where American Viet Nam vet hero Johnny Rambo goes off to Afghanistan to joint the mountain Muslim Jihadists to fight the evil Russians.

    In the Green Beret – John Wayne has characters trying to convince skeptical American (liberal) reporters that evil White Socialists in countries like Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia were the once behind the Viet Namese Communists killing Americans and opposing freedom and democracy in Viet Nam.

    What utter nonsense.

    Talk to regular White folks in countries like Czechoslovakiai, Serbia, Hungary and Poland and you find almost universal racial/cultural sanity, White identity – ain’t anybody in Central and Eastern Europe being indifferent to the mass 3rd world, non White migrant invasions of the West.

    Nah, this is painful. We haven’t and will never get saviors from Right Wing Conservatives in Hollywood.

    Not John Wayne, Not Ronald Reagan, Not Clint Eastwood, Charleton Heston or Mel Gibson.

    • Can’t disagree with you. It seems a very large percentage of Western whites have deep, severe problems when it comes to self-preservation and propagation of our kind. I wish I fully understood the East/West difference when it comes to white identity. Are the Easterners just more sane because they lived through spare conditions, or is there something wrong with the more Germanic, Western genetic code?

      And yes, Green Berets is an absolutely pathetic film.

  10. My man Wayne. Clint Eastwood too, prior to about 1980, till he went left. That America can be brought back in the REGION of the south … if only dopes like WP had even half a brain to know when a 10 of an idea, ( a general concept, ) was presented to their mental midget ass on a silver platter. Some “townsfolk” will never change though. There’s nothing anyone can do for them.

  11. I’ve known about that John Wayne interview with Playboy for years, and I’m sure the enemy has as well. So why did the jewsmedia and the anti-White activists wait until now to get….

    Forgive me, I keep forgetting that this is all part of a coordinated strategy to attack the goyim and their heroes at just the right time for maximum effect. You see, I don’t think like the Afro-Asiatics do. But I am more or less aware of how they think.

    As far as the darkies in Africa are concerned, once the Chinx colonize it Sambo will be begging the French, British and Belgians to rule over them again.

  12. The feral negroid beast is a plight forced upon humanity of all races, specifically white America.
    China doesn’t have any guilt for raping their land and exploiting them but we must all bow to them over the actions of a tiny few even if we hand them nonstop reparations in the form of all types of social programs and free schooling , free food(EBT) etc etc.
    We’ve coddled these niggers and they are brutish creatures that don’t respect empathy and altruism, in fact, just look how niggers prey on the weak and helpless constantly and you can see weakness and empathy sicken and enrage their feeble, primitive minds.
    Its sickening how we’ve allowed the burden of their existence and needs to outweigh our own existences and needs in the name of jewish forced multiculturalism.
    Imagine my shock when learning that jews played the last role in Colonial era slaver trading as they have for most of documented history in slavery.
    I know , i know…we are all just racists , and if it weren’t for evil white “devils” the negro would have fried chicken joint they be selling drugs out of in space ,while raping martian women and blaming them for not giving them enough free stuff.

    • China has been slowly getting their yellow claws into Africa for decades. Chinese “development” and construction projects are all over the continent. The Chinese don’t seem to be racially aware, though. In one documentary I saw, Chinese workers were openly insulting Africans for not being able to build their own infrastructure. Laughing at them, calling them weak and stupid. Wish I could remember the name of that film. I haven’t heard anyone call out Chinese hatred of blacks, though. Should (((Chinese))) be in parentheses, too? They seem to be able to do whatever they want, with little or no consequences.

    • The greedy white fools who came to North and South America weren’t forced to bring blacks with them and blight the whole hemisphere(yeah, I know Jews had the main role in selling them). They should have done their own work and left blacks in Africa.

  13. This current ‘exposé’ of Marion Morrison is (((Hollywood’s))) attempt to “wag the dog” in regards to the jewgro homo jussie smollett hate hoax.

    Normies and other sheeple are easily distracted.


  14. Wayne was just saying what was leftist for that day. Train the blacks, and then give them everything Whites made.

    Hey, how about NO!

    Our ancestors built this civilization for us. No other race has a right to White civilization, no matter how well trained they are.
