This is going to be one of the more difficult posts I have attempted, for the observation I shall try to convey is neither scientific nor by any means universal. It is not my intention to offend -but putting this into words is almost like trying to grasp fog in ones hands.
All the above being said, the average I.Q. is lower for blacks than it is for most other races. At the moment, it does not concern us why this is so, whether the causes are nature or nurture or a combination of the two. But the fact remains that there are still some unusually intelligent black men. For whatever reasons, the phenomenon I am about to describe does not seem to apply as much to black women but mainly to black men.
It would be fair to assume that most unusually bright children recognize, fairly early, that their minds are superior to the minds of their peers. As children, it is only natural that they would take on a certain haughtiness as a result; children are not known for their modesty. This would apply even more so to an unusually bright black child, especially when he is growing up among other blacks.
I have noticed that many of these bright black children do not lose their haughtiness as they mature. As the bright black boy grows older, and as his distinctiveness becomes ever more obvious, this young man seems to take on a god-like demeanor. The whites in his life, being unaccustomed to such an intelligent black, shower him with affection and approbation. They find, in his person, salvation from their (supposed) ingrained racial bigotry. Inwardly they view him as a tool, to be pulled out of their leftist tool kit when necessary, that allows them to say, “I’ve known some very intelligent blacks.” Thus, the intelligent young black develops a symbiotic relationship with his white flock. He fills a valuable niche in their leftist psyche while they feed his ego, provide for his livelihood, happiness, sexual desires and social advancement.
We do not find a similar phenomenon with highly intelligent Asians; Asians are expected to be smart. Leftist whites have no emotional need to proclaim, “I’ve known some very intelligent Asians”; the “smart Asian” is not a tool they will ever need in their leftist tool-kit. The same applies to Jews and, of course, to whites in general.
What are the ramifications, to a developing young man, when he is regularly put on a pedestal? The results will, of course, vary. But there is no denying that many of these bright black men will end up full of themselves. Such an individual will be ever conscious of his intellectual prowess and he will project it in subtly ostentatious ways. Frequently, he will over-estimate the power of his own intellect and he will believe that he has truly earned the prestigious position he holds – even though affirmative action (both official and informal) has ensured his every advance*. He often acquires a certain manner of speaking and certain facial expressions that are worthy of his majestic station in life. After all, he is the exalted intelligent negro.
* In a perfect world, such an individual would probably succeed on his own. In today’s America, whites are so ridden with guilt (and so desperate to show they are not racist) that he will probably never even have the opportunity to succeed on his own before he is swept up to fill such a role. He is a valuable commodity that government and corporations are willing to bid and fight over.
