Are blacks, as a group, capable of civilization?
I have read the entire exchange in “Feral blacks and the image of God” and am aware that you are not soliciting further comments. [LA replies: The discussion did continue, though on different and non-racial terms, here and here.] But I think there are two things that need to be teased out a little further.

The first is that during the conversation we kept veering between talking about individuals and talking about the group. But in fact, to me, this conversation is about the group. I happily agree that there are wonderful black individuals, but how does the existence of some excellent black individuals affect the harsh black realities of, say, a Detroit, or any area where blacks are in demographic majority anywhere in the world? Whenever blacks gain demographic superiority over whites it is only a matter of time until a genocide or large scale killing of whites occurs (Haiti, Zimbabwe, South Africa). Again, I know of no exceptions. These are uncomfortable facts, especially to Christians, I know, I’m one. In point of fact black society leads only to savagery and bloodshed, I know of no exceptions.
Secondly, though blacks are enthusiastic, energetic and noisy Christians, I can find no effect from their alleged faith on their communities. I was talking with a pastor recently about the fact that we both carry a pistol for self protection and the fact that the primary reason was the savagery of blacks here in Indianapolis. When I asked him what he thought the solution to this problem might be, his response was Christ. Well, I drive through the ghetto with some regularity, there is no shortage of churches there. What? Will we force blacks to attend churches with white pastors? Will we insist they reject an anti-white gospel? If so how?
I freely admit that I do not have the answers to these questions, but I do ask them. I imagine a majority of your readers do as well.
