Abolishing America (contd): A New King—Or A New Cesar?

Back when conservatives started
talking about the

“culture war,”
they generally meant the clash
over issues like sex,





Now, having lost (or
surrendered on) most of
those issues, conservatives don`t

talk much
about the “culture war” at all.

That does not mean, of course, that
the war is over. It`s just that it is now a race war, a
conflict from which most conservatives are AWOL and the
left is on the other side.

The reason the culture war has now
evolved (or devolved) into a race war is that it is
increasingly being fought between different
races—sometimes whites versus blacks, when whites are

willing to fight at all
, but

more and more often

blacks and Hispanics
. The issue in the war is over
whose culture—values, beliefs,

icons, etc.—will prevail, and culture is
increasingly linked to race.

In San Jose, Calif., the lines of
the conflict are now clear in a looming battle over the
name of a local street. The Associated Press reports
that a movement by some blacks in the city to rename
“King Street”
has stirred opposition from local

The blacks want to

say, the present King Street is named after a chap

settled the area
in 1851. Talk about a dead white
male. The proposal is to change the name of the street
to “Martin Luther King Jr. Road.”[PDF]


later King
never went to San Jose and the street has
nothing to do with him, though of course he had little
to do with the (literally) 660 other streets named after
him across the country either.

The reason local blacks want to
rename the street is that, as a local police officer
says, “we`re trying to enhance the area with a great
man`s name.”
That seems to be the best reason he and
his allies can offer. [San
Jose, Calif., Split Over MLK Street
, By
DEBORAH KONG, Associated Press, Sunday, November 2, 2003

Since the street “runs through
the heart of one of the city`s

Latino neighborhoods
it`s not clear what
“enhancing the area”
means. Is something wrong with
Hispanics that needs to be “enhanced”?

As for the Hispanics themselves,
they are not especially eager to change the name.

“In San Jose,” the AP
reports, “the divide falls mostly between blacks and
Hispanics, but the racial lines aren`t absolutely clear.

National Association for the Advancement of Colored

local president
opposes the change, while some
relatives of labor leader

Cesar Chavez
favor it.”

The NAACP is against it because
“we cannot have a black against brown fight,”

according to its local chieftain.

I guess it`s OK to have a

black versus white fight
when the NAACP wants whites
to name streets after King.

And the reason some Hispanics
support the change is that they`d like the street (or
maybe one intersecting it) named after

Cesar Chavez
, the Mexican-American labor leader and
activist. Some years ago, Mexicans in the city put up a

statue of the Aztec god Quetzalcoatl
in the city
center in place of the

white American soldier
who captured the city for the
United States during the Mexican-American war.

That ought to tell you which race
is in charge in San Jose.

It certainly tells the local blacks
that. One black resident gripes,

area`s going to remain the same. Nobody`s moving
anything. What is it that`s being destroyed? The older
African-Americans who`ve been there forever, what about
us? It sounds like they`re
[the Hispanics]
saying, `This is our area. We

own this.

It`s nice someone understands
what`s going on.

What`s going on behind the squabble
over changing the street name is a racial conflict
between blacks and Hispanics, and the issue is which
culture—and thereby which race—will prevail.

It`s the same conflict going on

throughout the country
and indeed every other

multiracial society
on earth. And it will get more
bitter and perhaps more violent before one side or the
other wins.

Which side that will be is by no
means clear as yet, though the Hispanics, thanks to

mass immigration

high fertility
, have the advantage of numbers. But
one thing is clear: Whites are

no longer in the running
at all.

No one bothers to ask whatever
whites remain in San Jose what name they would like to
have on the street.

Nobody even thinks about asking if
they mind that streets named after a white man be
renamed after a black or a Hispanic.

And any white who did object would



Having lost (or surrendered in) the

culture war
, whites are now losing (or surrendering
in) the

race war
that follows it.

How many more wars can whites
afford to lose?
