Earlier today, I went to go study for an actuarial exam at a table by the pool at my apartment complex. My apartment set up some pretty nice scenery with a waterfall and palm trees and stuff, so it's a nice place to study. I didn't stick around for a very long time, because there were about ten to twenty black people there having a bit of a get together and it kinda ruined it for me.
I'm not saying that they were doing anything wrong. They live in the apartment complex and have the right to be there. They are allowed to play their black people music at the volume they had it, they weren't being destructive or violent, or anything like that. It was just a large group of black people gathering in a way that they're allowed to do and using the facilities like anyone else.
When normies talk about assimilation, they usually talk about it in trivial ways. Does this person speak fluent English without an accent? Does this person celebrate Thanksgiving? Does this person watch American TV shows and movies while getting the cultural references? Etc. I get that that's a quantitative way to do things, but it doesn't really get to the heart of the matter.
Black people music has a very distinctive "black" sound and even a black feeling to it. Blacks have different mannerisms with each other, from things as obvious as the volume that they speak at or harder to describe like the way the influxes of how they talk or even the words they use (even when they don't talk in ebonics.) It just creates a very different feeling to it and I don't really like it.
I'm also going to note that there were no other whites in the pool area today. It's usually mostly white, but there wasn't a single one there today. I think it should be pretty obvious that they had exactly the same feeling that I did. They just didn't like the scenery.
I wouldn't describe my feeling as "hatred." I associate "hatred" with a passionate emotion of intense anger and disgust at someone's mere existence, not just with disliking the scenery that other groups make. I don't think wicked things about them and I do acknowledge that they were just doing their thing exactly as they were allowed to do. It's just very unattractive to me, and apparently to every white (actually, every non-black) in the apartment.
I think that the reason why the left tries to demonize the way I feel so much is because it's a really powerful argument. I don't really like the idea that wherever I live, I'll have to leave whenever certain groups decide to hang out. And sure, some liberal here will comment "You didn't have to leave" but I kind of did, or at least I couldn't have had the type of experience I was hoping to have.
And btw, I live near a city so there are plenty of liberals and communists where I live; none of them wanted to be near these blacks. It's just not a good thing to put up with and that should be enough reason in and of itself not to support diversity.
It also doesn't rely on them being criminals or rapists or anything. My apartment is expensive enough that those people are pretty much weeded out. It's just that white people generally don't like how these groups are and so it makes sense for us to want a place of our own.
