American Blacks (And Whites, Of Course) Displaced In Miami
One likely result of the war with Iraq will probably
be the further glorification of the multicultural,
multiracial America that the architects of the New World
Empire seek to build, with the country`s
multicultural, multiracial army held up as a
model of what American society can, will and should
Unfortunately, armies are not very good models of
what real, civilian societies are like, and the real
civilian version of multicultural and multiracial
America is already unfolding in Florida, where it is
riddled with ethnic conflict and fierce political
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel
reports that the arrival of Caribbean immigrants,
mostly of African descent, into the state is creating a
"rift" within the Democratic Party with traditional
The blacks are steamed because they believe—probably
rightly—that the arrival of the Caribbeans threatens to
deprive the Black Caucus of the political influence it
has long enjoyed in the party.
"We think this doesn`t unify us as black people,"
the president of
Florida`s Democratic Black Caucus says. "Even
though they are Caribbean, they are people of color."
The point, you see, is not to create the famous
"color-blind society" of civil rights era mythology, but
to "unify us as black people"—in a word, to
create explicit racial consciousness and unity.
Immigration doesn`t help that goal, because it
imports other ethnic groups that may not share the same
racial identity or the same political interests.
That is exactly what has happened in south Florida,
and while what the Sun-Sentinel describes as
"the seething Black Caucus members" vowed to ponder
the grave step of leaving the Democratic Party entirely
if their demands for racial kowtow are not met, the
Caribbeans have started their own pressure group—the
The new caucus contains black immigrants from places
Haiti and Jamaica whose interests are rather
different from those of traditional black Americans.
"They [the Black Caucus] deal mainly with
domestic and civil issues, which are all good," the
chairman of the Caribbean Caucus, a black Bahamian,
says. "But when it comes to Caribbean issues, we are
not on the priority list of the Democratic Party."
One issue the Caribbeans want to deal with that black
Americans have little interest in is immigration itself.
Not only do the Caribbeans want more of it (to swell
their political clout) but also they want to avoid
detention when they and their co-Caribbeans
Most join the
Democratic Party but don`t identify with its Black
Caucus, though they do sign up with the party`s other
subgroups: The Women`s Caucus, the
Hispanic Caucus, the
Disability Caucus, and the Triangle Caucus, which
includes homosexuals, lesbians, and transvestites.
It ought to be obvious what`s missing from the list:
Plain Old White Male Normal People`s Caucus. Those
types, if there are any left in the Democratic Party,
have little to say these days, and there are few who
want to hear it anyhow.
What is happening among south Florida`s Democrats is
what`s happening also in other parts of the country
different ethnic groups compete for limited
political resources—funds, power, nominations, or just
plain attention from office holders.
There just aren`t enough resources to go around to
everyone, so only the most numerous and the loudest get
any grease, and as older power blocs wither or decline,
they and their members lose.
The result is not the
multiracial happyland that authoritarian military
supposedly creates in the armed services but the
intensification of ethnic identity and conflict.
They get more than we got; we should get more than they
get. Depending on how limited and how vital the
resources are, this is the formula for
But it`s a race war that apparently does not and will
not include whites, who simply drop out and move away.
As the list of
approved victim groups above suggests, whites prefer
to run than fight, and in
south Florida they`ve run as fast as they could. In
1960 Miami was 85 percent white; in
2000, only 20 percent.
To a large extent, the harmony and happiness that
multicultural, multiracial empires are supposed to
experience derive from one or two factors: the
unwillingness of one cultural-racial group to resist at
all, or the ability of one such group simply to dominate
all the others and impose peace among them.
As the prophets of multiracialism keep telling us,
there`s little prospect for the latter these days, so
it`s more likely, if
interracial peace does persist, that it will be
because one race chooses not to challenge its loss of
power and position as other races reach for it.
As the conduct of whites in south Florida and just
about everywhere else in the country suggests, there`s
little doubt which race that will be.
