Getting mad at MADD

Far be it from me to belittle the pain of bereaved parents. Call me selfish, but one of my greatest wishes is that none of my children precede me in death.

This is why I don’t want to be too hard on MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Drivers). Even though they’ve been accused of promoting a gradual reinstatement of prohibition and of being dishonest, I think their intentions are noble. But you know what they say about good intentions

What strikes me about MADD is that their website makes no mention of black history month, Asian pride or Native American solidarity. It goes without saying that they don’t recognize the importance of white identity, even though MADD is implicitly white and their leadership and board of directors is entirely white.

MADDBut MADD gives special attention to Hispanics – an ethnic group (using the term loosely) with some of the highest rates of drunk driving. As such, we might expect an attitude of indifference toward Hispanics, if not outright hostility.
In 1984, as the Hispanic population truly began to explode in the United States, MADD had a change of attitude:

In 1984, MADD changed its name from Mothers Against Drunk Drivers to Mothers Against Drunk Driving. This carefully considered change was made because MADD is opposed to the criminal act of drunk driving, not individuals.

Of course, I can’t possibly know what motivated them to make this change, but it looks suspiciously as if they had no problem condemning drunk drivers as evil incarnate as long as they were overwhelmingly white – but as soon as it became apparent that drunk drivers would be increasingly brown, MADD didn’t have the stomach to condemn them.

In true Stockholm fashion, MADD goes out of its way to coddle Hispanics, recognizing Hispanic Heritage Month. Since MADD stresses the importance of Hispanic culture, it’s not surprising that its shortcomings are interpreted as victimhood by MADD:

Driving drunk is a problem that affects people of all races.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Hispanics have the second highest rate of drinking and driving incidents and are more likely than other groups to ride in vehicles operated by drivers who have been drinking.   Research also shows that 90 percent of Hispanics see drunk driving as a major threat to the safety of themselves and their families.

In short, drunk driving does not discriminate—it kills and injures people of all races and culture.

We strive to reach out to diverse populations to fulfill our mission to stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking.  Please visit our Spanish language resource center for links to programs, brochures and other services/materials available in Spanish at madd.org/espanol.

This is like saying black neighborhoods are “plagued by gun violence” or “Americans suffer from obesity.” The above statement almost makes it sound as if Hispanics are more at risk of being killed because they hop in cars driven by (presumably white) drunks. Also, to say that drunk driving does not discriminate, immediately after admitting that different ethnic groups have different offense rates, is ridiculous. I wonder if these mothers would agree if I told them that breast cancer does not discriminate based on gender – since men also suffer from it sometimes.

I think I’ll go have a drink!

    DAMM – Drunks Against Mad Mothers. Proud member since 1986. ;-)

    Not sure if this has been brought up on this blog, DNA tests of a 24k year old siberian skeleton seems to demonstrate that American Indians are about 1/3 European genes, even before any more recent mixing.

    I’m sure a lot of them won’t like to think this, proud as they are. But rest assured, native americans, the link is pretty distant (speaking in terms of recent human evolution), distant enough that the white and east asian races have done plenty of evolving since. Hence the very significant IQ difference.

    It’s pretty interesting to think that 24000 years ago (probably as recent as 20 – 15000 years ago) Europeans and east Asians had lower IQ’s than today. Natural Selection, including social selection, increased our IQ’s, while other parts of humanity remained stagnant. Then Europeans and East Asian IQ’s increased, significantly, and they colonised large parts of entire continents, spreading their high-IQ genes throughout areas, displacing lower IQ’d people. It’s only because of these two (originally very small) groups that we have everything Western and Eastern cultures have given us.

    The fact that, in the West at least, the IQ’s are now heading Backwards (through, obviously, immigration and breeding rates) is another matter altogether. As for when European IQ peaked is also another interesting topic perhaps for another time. But, gazing back in time briefly it’s cool to think that two groups at separate ends of the Eurasian landmass gained their IQ’s independently and used them to procreate to a massive extent, virtually creating great human culture in the process.

    Human IQ and those groups responsible for it are precious and should not be messed with. It’s sad to see today’s West not even caring.

    There’s also DAM – Mothers Against Dyslexia.

    MADD was created by the insurance companies. They found some actual Mothers of people killed by drunk drivers and created MADD. Their reason was modern medicine and excellent ambulance and para medic services.

    Insurance companies never liked paying out of course. But by 1970 the companies were faced with young survivors of car crashes surviving as seriously handicapped patients for 40 or 50 years. This meant massive payouts to nursing homes and other medical providers.

    So the insurance companies founded MADD. The medics, first responders and police departments jumped on early. Of course the cops and paramedics and ER medics saw the results of drunk driving car crashes all the time.

    Then the police departments discovered that they could raise revenue by setting up checkpoints and pulling over every third car and accusing the drivers of drunk driving. Some police departments make a point of harassing the accused non drunk drivers of “resisting arrest” and arresting them and even assaulting them.

    All in all it is very profitable. MADD is indeed neo prohibitionist. The city of Sausalito Ca has a lot of restaurants and tourist attractions. The gestapo police presence guarding against alleged drunk drivers is so heavy residents won’t even go into town during the weekends for fear of being arrested. Same in Pacifica Ca and other small, crime free towns where the police forces do nothing but give out false drunk driving tickets and dog leach violations.
