We have entered a new progressive era.
In the Bay Area, which is home to one of the largest concentrations of woke progressives in the country, we have been monitoring the situation as this experiment has unfolded there:
- We have observed that San Francisco is being quietly looted
- We have watched as AAPI businesses have been vandalized
- We have watched Target shorten its hours due to organized shoplifting
- We followed the introduction of the CAREN Act
- We watched San Jose go after legal gun owners
- We watched a “white supremacist” stab two elderly AAPI women in broad daylight
- We watched Oakland explode in “12 hours of non-stop chaos” on July the 4th
- We watched Oakland’s experiment with Woke Basic Income
- We watched Oakland’s Chief of Police lead a “Stand Up For a Safe Oakland” rally which was disrupted by Antifa
- We have followed the polls which show that 70% feel the quality of life has declined and that 40% of San Francisco residents plan to leave the city
- We watched San Francisco and Oakland respond to the ongoing surge in violent crime by implementing “Defund the Police”
- We watched as the crime wave in the Bay Area build up to a crescendo with former Sen. Barbara Boxer getting mugged yesterday in Oakland
In our view, this decline in civilization in the Bay Area illustrates the toxic relationship between blacks and the woke professional class that is at the core of the Democratic Party.
The White progressives or Baizou (White Left) as they are called in China are so crippled by their religion of “antiracism” that they have come to despise their own race and civilization. They blame other White people for all the misfortunes and actions of blacks who they put up on a pedestal and worship as gods and coddle and infantilize. Whether it is reproducing or simply maintaining law and order, they are increasingly incapable of maintaining the basic routine tasks that keep a civilization going.
As for the blacks, most of them believe what they are told by the “journalists” and academics which is that somehow they are oppressed in this country where their race is an advantage that opens all doors for them. They have become infantilized entitled children. They are led by a class of sullen, insolent and perpetually aggrieved professional blacks like Ta-Nehisi Coates or Don Lemon or Charles Blow. There is no external pressure coming from Whites like in the Jim Crow South which would force them to get their act together like during segregation when they had intact families and black-on-White crime was relatively rare because it was treated by Whites as a serious matter rather than swept under the rug.
Blacks are the opposite of oppressed in the Bay Area. The world revolves around them because of White guilt and everyone else who lives there suffers from the fallout.
Note: Everything you see in the videos below are symptoms of the “structural antiracism” crisis. It is “antiracism,” not racism, which is strong and has been institutionalized.
