Van Jones: Only Suburban White Kids Shoot Up Schools

Note: Had to replace this video as the original was removed from YouTube. I'm not familiar with "Defend Glenn" and am simply posting the video, not implying any endorsement of this user's political positions.

Van Jones gets one thing right in this video. Many young White Men lack strong, loving male leadership. Of course, he won't say it, but they need strong, loving WHITE male leadership. I pray that many of my readers are already stepping up to the plate to provide this.

The rest of this speech is full of garbage. The thing about the black kid shooting another black is actually pretty funny. Supposedly he doesn't shoot up the whole school like a White male would, he just shoots one person. This goes against any objective analysis that looks at longitudinal, rather than situational, data. Repeat offenders can take out as many as a Columbine style event, and there are plenty of repeat offenders in the Black community.

For that matter, why are they shooting anybody at all?

You are very Right. I will add Blacks commit the majority of murders and half of the people murdered in the US are Black. The "Columbine style events" are horrible, but they are very rare.

Man bites dog. School shootings are rare, what is more common is the decivilizing of the inner cities. Crime, murder, public prostitution, public drug use, trash in the streets are so common that they are unremarked.

I've a question regarding the follwoing from your Van Jones entry:
"Van Jones gets one thing right in this video. Many young White Men lack strong, loving male leadership. Of course, he won't say it, but they need strong, loving WHITE male leadership."

Why white? Why not just christian male?

Because all young men need validation in their ethnic nature as well as their Christian nature.

Young Black males need strong, loving, Christian, Black male leadership. Young Chinese, strong, loving, Christian, Chinese male leadership. Latino young men need the same from their own ethnic group. And so on, for all the peoples of the world.

Many people will not dispute that young men of every ethnic group, except the White group, need strong Christian male leadership from among their own kind.

I think the more important question here is why people think Whites are different in that way?

I hope this doesn't step on your toes, but you might want to consider that this idea is one of two things; either a genocidal impulse against White males, or a truly r****t and patronizing attitude towards all other races based on the subconscious idea that Whites are too advanced to need that kind of thing, but oh, those poor other races, they still need that.

Buying in to either one of those concepts should prompt one to a bit of self-examination.

One can experience good Christian influence from members of other races in addition to that of their own; still, it shouldn't the only influence they have. Too much confusion for the Black boy surrounded by Whites (seen this in action), etc. etc.

Hope this answers your question.

Thanks for the reply and no, you didn't step on any toes.

I agree that it's nice to receive instruction on one's culture from one's own. The problem is that I don't know of a biblical mandate to that effect. And I'm afraid my culture is of no consequence if at the end the only distinction made by the Almighty is between wheat and chaff, his sheep and those not of his flock and all that. I see no separation based on culture.

If true then christian male leadership and instruction is what's needed regardless of kind.

If I had to select a christian role model it wouldn't be a hispanic or latino (or whatever other idiotic thing we refer to ourselves as these days) male but Paul, Peter or Jesus. They're far from being latino and infinitely preferable to the best my, your or any other kind can offer.

As for genocidal impulses against white males well, there's something to that. However, it's accompanied by a healthy suicidal impulse as well. I can't help but feel bad for the rather unjust beating you guys take.

Finally, thanks for letting me post here. Agree or disagree I enjoy the site.

As you say, first Jesus, then the Apostles. Always.

The Old Testament requires Jewish children to receive instruction from their fathers and to respect/honor their fathers and mothers. And God was very specific about preserving the racial/spiritual integrity of the Jewish people. So it's not as if this is something new.

Jesus said he was sent to the lost sheep of the Jews, but had compassion on the gentile woman.

Where I draw the line in the sand is when I hear people spout ideas like all the races and cultures should be merged via interbreeding into some bland, homogeneous amalgam. God has been pleased to bless the world with many different varieties of trees; should there only be one tree? Why only one race? Do these people promote this idea simply to avoid race-based conflict? Sometimes it seems that way to me. But the different races can and should have respect for one another, and for one another's uniqueness, especially among Brothers and Sisters in Christ.

El padron means the registered? My Spanish is a little rusty. I'm assuming you are of Latin American descent, and I appreciate your courtesy, even and especially when we disagree.

God bless you,

lpadron as in luis padron. Of spanish descent and who knows what else. I'll write more tomorrow if that's ok with you. My eyes are just about crossed at this hour.
Thank YOU for the courteous replies.

Laurel Loflund said...

No problem, as I said, my Spanish is rusty. You are welcome to discuss. I don't claim to have all the answers. I do believe in discussing in a civilized manner, so we seem to be on the same page.

Get some rest, Luis. Tomorrow is the Sabbath.

I agree to a degree. God was certainly interested in preserving the spiritual integrity of his people. He prohibited marriage with non-believers.

It seems that if He were concerned with racial integrity he would have prohibited marriage to believing non-jews as well. But he didn't. At least as far as I know, anyway. I'm open to correction on this.

I've never heard anyone mention blending all races and cultures into one. I wouldn't worry much about it if I did, though. Unity of any kind, much less racial/cultural ones, are an iffy proposition at best given our fallen natures.

"God has been pleased to bless the world with many different varieties of trees; should there only be one tree?"

Nope. Then again, yes. How about one tree with different yet interchangeable branches bearing the same fruit?

I sympathize with kinists if only because it's rather obvious that the average white guy/gal (especially those from the south) is viewed as being the root of all evils suffered since this nation's inception and before. Nothing could be further from the truth, of course.

Too many are happy to read and re-read the long list of sins by white folks and too few are willing to read, just once, the equally long list of extremely good things the same white folks are responsible for.

In my estimation, reacting in the basest way to the former and including race in the dividing line instead of just Christ is where kinists lose me. Again, though, I sympathize mightily.

Joshua 23:9 (ESV) For the LORD has driven out before you great and strong nations. And as for you, no man has been able to stand before you to this day. 10 One man of you puts to flight a thousand, since it is the LORD your God who fights for you, just as he promised you. 11 Be very careful, therefore, to love the LORD your God. 12For if you turn back and cling to the remnant of these nations remaining among you(S) and make marriages with them, so that you associate with them and they with you, 13know for certain that the LORD your God will no longer drive out these nations before you, but they shall be a snare and a trap for you, a whip on your sides and thorns in your eyes, until you perish from off this good ground that the LORD your God has given you.

Only one of the many verses in the OT against marrying outside of ones ethnic/spiritual nation.

I don't disagree with you on one tree idea, the people of God are the people of God no matter in what ethnicity they find themselves. He has been pleased to create his people through all time. But if God creates something different from something else, there's usually a reason, and we destroy it to our peril.

No Kinist will ever deny that the people of God includes those of all races, at least so far as I am aware. We do not believe in destroying the things that make them unique; we object to having our uniqueness destroyed.

If you have missed out on the whole miscegenation-is-not-an-option-but -a-requirement movement within the modern church (Ken Ham is the primary promoter of this), you won't understand what I'm talking about. Do a Google search for his name and you will find a lot of material to help you become informed.

The White race, as a race, including the elect as well as unsaved, has done both good and bad, as you mention. We have simply become a convenient whipping boy, someone to blame. Given the nature of fallen Man, I don't see this changing for a good long while because it allows the people doing the blaming to avoid responsibility for their own actions.Sometimes folks blame their mothers for their flaws, sometimes they blame us.

Lord, I am getting cynical in my old age.
