Hart-Risley Hypothesis: "Somebody grab my m**********' baby!"

The celebrated Hart-Risley Hypothesis that the school test score shortcomings of welfare children stem from their mothers not talking enough -- welfare children are exposed to 32 million fewer words by age four, we are frequently informed -- is back in the public eye with another video in the increasingly popular genre of Poor People on a Bus. As Hart-Risley advise, the mother does verbalize extensively, although those scholars might not fully approve of some of her vocalizations, such as "Somebody grab by m**********' baby." This request to the other transit passengers is intended to allow the mother to make good on her promise to another woman on the bus that "I will thrash you ... for disrespecting me in front of my baby."

Since nobody steps forward to grab her incest-inclined infant from her, at about 1:40 in the video the mother deftly executes a 1970s U. of Oklahoma Sooners wishbone-style pitchout to the surprised lady across the aisle, who, fortunately -- unlike star-crossed Heisman-winner Billy Sims in so many goal-to-go situations -- doesn't fumble.

A number of commenters have wondered why nobody on the bus suggests to the mother that her implementation of the Hart - Risley protocol that welfare mothers should talk more is lacking in a full, nuanced understanding of how best to foster her baby's cognitive development But, the other passengers had probably watched on World Star Hip Hop what had happened to Lefenus Pickett on a Philadelphia bus when he had critiqued a welfare mother's childrearing techniques.

Seriously, the increasing intensity of political correctness in the Serious Media probably has something to do with the spread in the Undernews of cellphone and security camera videos on sites like World Star Hip Hop.

Moreover, the growing conventional wisdom -- that society must, in effect, take poor children away from their blood relations for as many of their waking hours as possible -- may well be secretly motivated by these kind of videos as well.

Greetings Sailer.

Have you seen the 2006 movie "Something New" with Sanaa Lathan?

Maybe white men should date brown or black females, instead of just Asian women and a couple of Hispanic females.

It seems that those type of women are more *ahem* civilized.

You this from women like Kerry Washington to Iman to Zoe Saldana to Oluchi.

I'm not joking.

Dark women (from brown to black) who marry and have families with white men are more civilized.

Just an observation I've made.

Of course in their own communities, they will be outed as "Uncle Toms" and be cussed at by "talking white" or worse "being a doormat".

Live Leak is another source for crazy videos. TheYNC.com has videos that are too over-the-top for even Live Leak and World Star Hip Hop, though you must have very good, up to date virus protection.

Well, in all fairness to the white researcher lady, I believe she was actually talking about the quantity of UNIQUE words, wasn't she?

While the young babymama in this video (clearly another Victim of The Legacy of Slavery) was speaking many words, she engaged in considerable repetition, particularly of the words "I", "kick", "yo", "ass", "muhfuh", and of course "my baby".

The UNIQUE word count was only about 12-15 words (as best I can translate them).

If you got parents like the one in the video to pause halfway through "motherfuckin'", and split it into two words, just think how much you'd increase the word-count in ghetto families.

Stuff Black People Don't Like said...

At some point, we need a long article by Sailer on World Star Hip Hop... where black people celebrate the black dysfunction in their midst by voluntarily uploading it to WSHH for all the world to see.

More so, voluntarily showcasing why 'white flight' is a natural response to an area of increasing overall black residential percentage.

I don't see anything remarkable about this video. As far as I can tell it's just a group of fellow equals going about their daily business every bit as fundamentally equally as you or I would. *grin*

One can always hope. Even better, some of them might even start dreaming up ways to encourage the spread of voluntary 'sterilization'
(we desperately need an attractive euphemism here).

And isn't it interesting the way mentally damaged equalitarian kooks manage to square their insistence that forgoing childbirth - ie the introduction of future humans into the world - is the height of liberal sensitivity when the subject is an accomplished intelligent mother (typically white) with their insistence that a useless 'mother' like this welfare disgrace absolutely must be allowed to fill the world with as many future criminals as her heart desires (or as many as taxpayers can be forced to fund).

"Why do you think there exists widespread awareness of these videos?"

There is a huge amount of interest in videos of bad mothering and the like. People enjoy getting worked up over random incidents of strangers behaving badly. To my mind, it's hard not to notice patterns, so, living as we do in the Information Age, there is a lot of indoctrination against noticing the patterns in all that Information.

There are some who say the Right is paranoid, and this idea goes back to the notion of 'the paranoid style of American politics' or some such.

Paranoia means to see malevolent, dark, hostile, deceptive, and dangerous intentions and agendas everywhere in everyone. Thus, a paranoid cannot function well in society because he or she trusts no one and/or believes that even people with good-will really have dark hidden agendas. Bunuel's EL had a memorable sexual paranoid in the jealous husband. L'ENFER too.

There are all sorts of paranoia: social, political, racial, spiritual, etc. It isn't good to see enemies and hostile forces everywhere and in everyone. It's debilitating.

But maybe what America and the West in general now suffers from is something that might be called the culture of pistinoia. 'Pisti' in greek meaning "faith, credit, belief, loyalty, trust, conviction."

If paranoids see hostility and danger everywhere--even where there isn't any--, pistinoids see goodness, warmth, kindness, good will, and virtue everywhere, even where there aren't any.
What ails current America is the pistinoid style of American politics and sociotics.

Just look at the racial reality. Sure, not all blacks are dangerous, but plenty are, and we need to face this fact and discuss why. But we have pistinoid fantasies like GREEN MILE that would have us believe that some humongous negro with muscle mass of several bulls and bisons is a kindly negro who just loves a little white mouse.
We have crazy black bitches like the one in the linked video all over America, but so many white folks are into pistinoid fantasy of Oprah as the archetypal warm black mammy mama who wanna hug us all.
Black thuggery hurts a lot of white people, but pistnoid Ken Burns and his ilk worship at the altar of Jack Johnson who specialized in smashing white boys in the face.

We have illegals breaking in and ruining this nation, but pistinoia would have us see them as the noblest folks who represent 'what this country is really about' and will do wonders for this nation's future.

We have Zionists making a mess of foreign policy and bringing financial ruin to this nation, but pistinoia has us worshiping Jews as the kindest, finest, and perfectest people on earth who would never harm a fly.

Pistinoia has us talking like Frank Sinatra in THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE.

"Negroes, Jews, illegals, and gays are the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human beings I've ever known in my life."

The world is filled with good people and bad people, with honesty and deception, with good will and ill will. If paranoia makes us see bad in everything(even in the good) pistinoia makes us see good in everything(even in the bad).

Too much of either is suicidal, but pistinoia may actually be more dangerous. A paranoid people might lose out on progress by being closed-minded, but they still survive as a people and culture. But a pistinoid people are essentially defenseless against all their enemies since they pathologically see good in everything, even in people who really mean them harm.

The horse in ANIMAL FARM was pistinoid about the pig commissars, but look what happened to it.

Here's another opportunity to apply the well-thought-out principle of Affirmative Action for improving the lot black Americans of this ilk:

Don't expect them, laboring as they do under the legacy of slavery, to be able to pause halfway.

Just give them credit, when they speak the one word, for speaking it as two.

Regarding the Philadelphia public bus shooting mentioned in the post, my father always told all of us never to get involved in other peoples business. Dad was a Phila policeman. My mother tells a story about hearing a disturbance on our street late at night in our then "changing" (late 60's) neighborhood of Germantown.

My mom went to look out the window. My dad asked her if she was prepared to testify in court about what she just witnessed. Mom said no.

Dad said ... "get back to bed, don't get involved, we're moving to the 'burbs in a couple of months."

Also, speaking as a non-Jew but someone who admires fighters, Israel is admirable because it has to live in truth. Israelis know that as Jews, the entire Third World and most of Europe wants to kill them. The Third World is willing to do it, and Europe is just consumed with ennui. They'd do it if they could without leaving the couch and switching off Real Madrid or Premier League.

Israel has to fight. They have to fight to keep from being overwhelmed by the Third World immigrants. They fight. They have to fight against foreign enemies who want to kill them. They fight. They are Whites who are not ashamed of their heritage, history, culture, and fight to preserve it.

Jews in the US, mostly have decided to simply self-annihilate by intermarriage, adopting the WASPy decline into a tiny Oligarchy and a mass of "Pakistani Bricklayers prosperity" ala Neal Stephenson.

We need some fighting here. I wish we had guys who saw service in Iraq and Afghanistan running and winning here.

Now we know the REAL problem that black kids face.
They are not grabbed enough.

We need to send grabbers into the black community so that black women can fight. If there aren't enough grabbers, black women can't fight and take out their rage on their babies.

Black babies are the story of bravery of grabbing.

We must feed the black baby, clothe the black baby, house the black baby, talk to the black baby, and most of all, grab the black baby.

I wasn't there, so I can't talk about what exactly you saw, but in general the most common kind of black cult gathering in the subway promotes a shtick that's the exact opposite of Whiskey's: they are non-Jews who claim to be Jews. Blacks frequently hear about Israelites in church. According to the Bible, which blacks do read, Jews are kind of important. So these guys, in the typically black megalomaniac fashion, have decided that they must be the real Jews. According to them non-blacks who call themselves Jews are impostors.

The Australians used to take Aboriginal children away from their parents to be raised by whites - now they catch Hell for it.

All the ruckus in Afghanistan was originally kicked off by the Russkies forcing Afghan girl children to attend boarding schools in the USSR.

Meddling with peoples' kids is a dumb, dumb, dumb policy - as dumb as you can possibly get. If anything is designed to start bitter ethnic hatreds and wars (except the western political class's fetish for race replacement on white lands) it's this policy. Lefty whites are the only creatures in God's green earth actually sub-nematode ganglion dumb enough to do this. (then again lefty whites are sub-nematode ganglion dumb in many, many other ways).

As the good book says 'better rob a she-bear of her cubs' than do this.

Off-topic from your off topic: I was standing next to the escalator of the CoNY Port Authority some years back when a black superhero rode up the escalator. No shit, a black superhero. He was dressed approximately like Blade, all black leather and spandex and such. Right down to leather gloves with the flared sides in traditional superhero style, knee high boots, and dark sunglasses. At night. Shit you not, he was more Blade than Blade. The kicker was his superhero stance, basically an enthusiastic fascist's take on parade rest, but with arms akimbo and head high. I'm not much of a gawker - I'm the guy who's cursing everyone else for slowing down to gawk at the wreck. But gawk - blatantly, head on a swivel until he was out of sight - I did.

Then there was the black guy in my MMA-before-it-was-MMA class in the 90s who carried daisho around and wore one of those folded banzai bandana headwraps (the ones with the rising sun and the red rays on a white field) and really just seemed to act like he thought he was a black samurai (lots of kneeling and bowing before the kami and all that).

When blacks are nuts, they're really entertainingly nuts, because blacks don't have strong internal shame/embarrassment mechanisms. Sub-Saharan Africa is instructive too, I suppose.

American Jewry and Israeli Jewry are BFFs. Israeli Jewry would be done for without American Jewry. The two are joined at the hip. Israeli Jewry fights for the tribe's ethnic homeland, and American Jewry alternates between aiding & abetting, and making damned sure no other whites do anything remotely similar.

Pistinoia is action. We've been tamed and conditioned to think and feel that way.

We are like dogs.

In nature, the defacto mode of all creatures is to be paranoid. One wrong step and you turn into lunch. So, deer are afraid of every sound. Squirrels jump at every sign of movement. Birds take flight from any disturbance. Any animal can be ambushed and killed at any moment, and so, it's natural to be 'paranoid'and be see hostile dangers everywhere. If an animal doesn't respond in a paranoid manner, it could be killed because there are dangers all around, and an animal never knows where and when danger lurks and stalks, ready to ambush. So prairie dogs flip out when they see something hovering in the sky. It could be nothing but it could also be an eagle or hawk.

With such paranoia raging all over, most animals cannot form communities, and even animal tribes, like that of wolves or chimps, are paranoid of dangers outside the pack or tribe.

Dogs, in contrast, have been bred to be more pistinoid, which why they're so eager to run up to everyone--even strangers--and seek affection. Dogs have been bred and raised to see all people and other animals as friends. Dogs can live well under our supervision, but dogs raised this way have no way of surviving in the wild which is filled with all sorts of dangers.

White folks have been golden-retriever-ized. They now even mistake wolves and jaguars for fellow dogs.

A lot of black women are hostile and vile, but white folks have Rosa Parks on their minds. Their minds have been conditioned with movies like HEP.

"Dogs, in contrast, have been bred to be more pistinoid... Dogs can live well under our supervision, but dogs raised this way have no way of surviving in the wild which is filled with all sorts of dangers. "

Haven't there been a few instances of domestic dogs being introduced by humans going full feral ? I think that's what happened with the dingo. If you've lived in the 3rd world or in eastern europe, you've surely seen street dogs that pretty much live their own lives. I don't know if golden retrievers could ever go feral, but the more average mutts type of dogs seem able to live on their own if they have to.

I don't really see that. There are plenty of animal communities such as ants, bees, wolves (although I've read that what was once thought of as a pack is really a family - the "alpha" is just the father wolf ), any herding animal such as wild horses, bovines, monkeys, apes, lions, flocking birds, schools of fish, etc.

The rest of your points about "pistinoia" are spot on though. It could be good to coin such a word. I note that the synonyms for "naivety", none imply mental illness which is what you are getting at. Today, the boy scout motto "Be Prepared" is paranoid according to the popular meaning of the word.

How can that have been the heyday when it only gets worse constantly? There were books and articles published in the early '90s that wouldn't be published now.

My impression is that PC has both gotten worse among liberals in the media, while there is a strong and growing number of HBD aware conservatives, both on the blogosphere and even in the MSM, for example Coulter. So from that perspective, the 1990s were perhaps a heyday in terms of the lack of dissenting opinion, but the overall tenor of the propaganda produced wasn't as bad as it is now.

For example, most children's shows did not promote race mixing or even multi-racial societies as is common now, and the idea that gay marriage might some day be accepted would mark one as a tinfoil hat wearing kook. On the other hand, The Bell Curve was published back then.

I've never heard anything like that, but it might be explained by the death of "sexism". The government still uses Title IX to initiate attainders, and the government forces unqualified women into roles they aren't qualified for in the armed forces, police and fire departments and the courts. However, the public and even much of the apparatus of public opinion formation have dropped the ludicrous pretense that men and women are the same and have greatly reduced the "political correction" directed at those who note the differences.
