Racist, the New Nigger or the New Redneck?

This is a somewhat scholastic question, that came to my mind after reading numerous critiques of the tea parties, which seem to come down to the charge or suspicions that the mostly white partiers were acting out of European interest — you know, that offense. The question concerns how to think of those racist people. Do they represent a particular group’s cultural degenerates or do they represent a degenerate group unto themselves. The question comes about, in part, because the people making the charge and those the claim is made about often look quite like each other, but surely don’t identify in the say way.

Nigger denotes black and connotates inferior. ‘Online Etymology’ tells us:

1786, earlier neger (1568, Scot. and northern England dialect), from Fr. nègre, from Sp. negro (see Negro). From the earliest usage it was “the term that carries with it all the obloquy and contempt and rejection which whites have inflicted on blacks” [cited in Gowers, 1965]. But as black inferiority was at one time a near universal assumption in Eng.-speaking lands, the word in some cases could be used without deliberate insult. More sympathetic writers late 18c. and early 19c. seem to have used black (n.) and, after the American Civil War, colored person.

It’s unlike the term blackneck, which, like redneck or white trash, connotes a perceived inferior sub-culture, and so a substrata within a group. As Gowers points out, it represents an across the board contempt for and rejection of a group which has been deemed unacceptable.

Racist now means group behavior which have been deemed to be socially unacceptable or bad and often implies as done by Europeans. (I meditate on this here). As European ethnic solidarity and interest is often labeled racist, in itself, European group behavior, in itself, is labeled racist and generally considered socially unacceptable. The expression of such group behavior is held in contempt and rejected.*

Now the question is, is the term Racists, as stipulated above, more akin to Niggers** or to Redneck? Let’s start by making a distinction between those born European and those choosing to live as a European, where the former means having been ancestrally born European, and the latter means living a life informed by that ethnocultural identity. The former is akin to a person who happened to have been born Jewish and neglects or rejects his ties, and the latter is akin to a person who lives as a Jew. And let’s note that the phrase ‘being European,’ or for that matter ‘Jewish,’ is ambiguous and can refer to either case. Noting all that:

If the term Racist is akin to Redneck, then we are saying that those who live as Europeans represent an inferior subculture or substrata with respect to a group. We are saying that Living as a European is a bad form of being European, where being European means being born European. Accordingly the proper or good form of European is to be neglect or rejects ones ties.

If the term Racist is akin to nigger,*** then we are saying that those who live as Europeans represent an inferior group. We are saying that Living as a European is being European; others are just ghosts. Accordingly, the proper and good form of being is not-being, as accomplished through cultural-liberalism.

It’s a subtle distinction based on how we define ‘being European.’

[On a side note, as there is a growing, well to do, Black middle class, do we think that Blackneck or some other terms, will become as popular as redneck? — as I have always said, every ethnic group should be privileged to have their own condescending elite]

*I am assuming some relationship, though maybe not this much, between ethnic solidarity, cohesion, and pursuit of interest and ethnic expression or being a part of an ethnos.

**My general suggestion has been that Black persons, and so necessarily Blacks as a people, were excluded on the basis of not fitting in with the US as an Anglo-Christian-European society. The US has since become post-Christian-European, or Multicultural. In this new society, Europeans as a people are deemed threatening and are excluded on the basis of not fitting in — usually by europhobic Jewish people and ethnically Liberated Europeans. What one makes of the latter will depend on what one makes of being a people.

***Maybe something like ‘Klaner’ or ‘Folker’ would get at this, as those terms would specifically target those who live as Europeans, or act as an ethnic group.
