Why Black Lives Matter, matters – Because Black Rage trumps White Guilt, every time

If you want to understand the rapid rise of Black Lives Matter in Toronto, read Tom Wolfe’s Radical Chic and Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers, written in 1970.

In two satirical essays, “Radical Chic” is the first, “Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers” the second, Wolfe explains why, when Black Rage confronts White Guilt, Black Rage wins.

In today’s context, BLM are Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers.

Mau-Mauing means to denounce and intimidate someone — named after the Mau Maus, a secret society of African warriors who led a revolt against British rule in Kenya.

The “Flak Catchers” are hapless government bureaucrats charged with keeping them happy.

They do so under orders from their “Radical Chic” bosses.

    I don’t care about black lives, rather it is black crimes that matter to me.

    • There’s a lot of that. Evidently my magic white skin is the culprit.

    Negroes are making it increasingly clear that don’t deserve our respect, our largesse or even the right to live among us.

    Black Lies Matter….

    How does pouring red paint on Darth Vader’s head help their cause?

    I wonder how many others are like me, in that I truly used to be colour blind when it came to people, preferring to judge each individual on his or her behaviour, just as I used to be accepting of what consenting adults did in private, be it opposite sex or same sex. However thanks to this kind of shit, I have developed a strong dislike for black causes, homosexual causes and “first nations” causes. If their goal was to create enemies and opposition to themselves and their grievances, they have succeeded with me.

      It’s called “being mature” or “being older”. One gets tired of being taken for a patsy over the decades……

    Most of the victims of the Mau-Mau were other blacks.
    Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose

    If black lives matter, then black crime stats need to be openly discussed.

    Tom Wolfe would have difficulty launching his literary career in contemporary America. Pity.

    Let them massacre each other to the last one standing.
