Blacks have a long historyof separatist movements.
by James P. Lubinskas
he founding fathers, like manyother great men in American his-tory, recognized the problems of multi-racialism and wanted to avoidthem. Some of this country’s mostprominent 19th-century leaders sup-ported the efforts of the American Colo-nization Society to help blacks return toAfrica (see AR, August 1998). Through-out American history whites have dis-tanced themselves from blacks, some-times by custom, sometimes by law.It is less well known that blacks alsohave a long history of separatist and“back-to-Africa” movements. Some of these were attempts to escape slavery orsecond-class citizenship, but others wereexpressions of black pride and racialnationalism. What they all had in com-mon was the understanding that multi-racialism does not work, and that the besthope for blacks was that they be free toshape their own destiny.Although Marcus Garvey (1887-1940) was the best known and most in-fluential of the black separatists, severallesser-known men were actually moresuccessful–sometimes remarkably so–inhelping American blacks move to Af-rica or establish black communities inthe United States. Today, most blacks seethe advantages of remaining within thelarger white society–from which, unlikewhites, they can withdraw into self-con-sciously racial groups and organizationswhenever they like–but there are stillmany who would prefer complete sepa-ration.
Early Efforts
Paul Cuffee (1759-1817), a free, half-black, half-American Indian Quakerfrom Massachusetts, started the firstblack separatist movement in 1816. Heconcluded it was best for Americanblacks to leave the country rather thantry to change it, and managed to get thefinancial backing from the British gov-ernment to transport 38 free blacks toSierra Leone. This West African nationhad been established by the British as ahaven for free and escaped slaves. Origi-nally a private preserve of abolitionistsand philanthropists, the governmenttook it over in 1807 after banning sla-very throughout the empire.Cuffee died a year after this first voy-age, unable to carry out his plans to re-settle more blacks. It would be almost40 years before another serious move-ment arose to continue his work, but twospecific events revived separatist senti-ment among the leading blacks of themid-19th century: Liberian indepen-dence and the Fugitive Slave Act.In 1847 Liberia declared indepen-dence. The country’s leaders were freeAmerican blacks who had been trans-ported to Africa by the American Colo-nization Society. Thanks to the help andfinancial support of the ACS, the colonyhad been a success. Blacks were able togo to Africa without fear of starving orbeing killed by hostile natives and, whatis more, Liberia was governed by blacks.“Back to Africa” was no longer just adream.Just three years later, Congress passedthe Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, whichallowed owners of runaway slaves toreclaim them even if they escaped to freestates. This was a great setback even fornorthern blacks, since there were casesof free blacks being taken into slaveryeither mistakenly or deliberately for thereward money offered for escapedslaves. The act symbolized the precari-ous status of blacks, and had the effectof increasing black emigration toCanada.Spurred by this legislation, a nationalblack emigration convention in Cleve-land in 1854 drew the leading separat-ists of the period. Describing their situ-ation as one of “disappointment, dis-couragement, and degradation,” becauseof the continuation of slavery, they dis-cussed emigration–though they decidedagainst leaving the Western Hemisphere.Other black emigration conventionswere held in 1856 and 1858 though norelocations ever resulted from them.One person at the initial conventionwas a physician named Martin R. Delany(1812-1885). He had originally pro-posed a “Caribbean Negro Empire,” butby 1859 was the chief commissioner of a party exploring the Niger Valley inWest Africa. Delany came up with a planto transport blacks to Africa and growcotton. The profits would not only sus-
These movementsrecognized that multi-racialism does not work,and that the best hopefor blacks was that theybe free to shape theirown destiny.

 Letters from Readers
Sir – I am in full agreement with thearticle by Prof. Robert Weissberg thatappeared in last month’s issue. We mustplug along as we have for almost fiftyyears with ever more tax money goingto Negroes, some to Mexicans, but littleto Asians. Most of our money has gonedown the drain, but it seems we will doanything to keep the peace. I was some-what encouraged by Jared Taylor’s re-sponse but by the time any changes canbe implemented, states like Texas andCalifornia will be primarily Mexicanand Spanish-speaking. Since I am 85, Iwill probably not be around to see anyof these changes anyway.Travis Osborne, Athens, Ga.Sir – Professor Weissberg had meleaning but Jared Taylor propped meback up.Name Withheld, Louisville, Ky.Sir – I enjoyed Stanley Hornbeck’sreview of 
The Culture of Critique
. Itwould seem that Prof. MacDonald hasfound a unified theory of why WesternCivilization is participating in its owndemise. I hope you continue to publisharticles and reviews that offer new ideasand new ways of making sense of theworld we live in.Richard Simpson, Enumclaw, Wa.Sir – I was pleased to see the reviewof Prof. Kevin MacDonald’s incisive andcourageous work concerning the Jew-ish role in the decline of the Caucasianwill to remain the dominant culture intheir respective homelands. People of-ten wonder how the black and Hispanicraces, not known for their organizationor intellect, could win victory after vic-tory against the descendants of thenation’s founders. Prof. MacDonald hasthe answer.It was therefore disappointing to readMr. Hornbeck’s concluding disclaimerwhich begins by asking “what differenceit makes if he is right,” pointing to indi-vidual Jewish intellectuals who opposemulticulturalism. This is equivalent tothe integrationist’s assertion that a ra-cially-mixed school or workplace has nodeleterious effect on whites becausethere are a few black individuals withhigh IQs or low levels of aggression.AR, of all publications, should recall thatthere is relevance to
conduct indeciding our allegiances and associa-tions. I acknowledge anyone whosetruths can save our civilization (ArthurKoestler must be included), while re-membering that the allegiance of Jewshas historically been to their own people,at the expense of the host nation of themoment.P. Stephen Keith, Blairs, Va.Sir – In his review of Kevin Mac-Donald’s
The Culture of Critique
,Stanley Hornbeck provides an excellentsummary of Dr. MacDonald’s devastat-ing indictment of the Jewish role in thedestruction of the white race and whitecivilization. Unfortunately, Mr. Horn-beck ends his article with a form of apo-logia; noting that some Jews seem toagree with the philosophy of AR, hesuggests that we would be “foolish” and“ungrateful” to reject Jewish assistancein saving our civilization.But is it “ungrateful” to reject the vi-sion of Michael Hart, who proposes a“white separatist state,” which, accord-ing to Prof. Hart, “may include Asiansand others?” Is it “ungrateful” to ques-tion why Robert Weissberg advocates apolicy that Jared Taylor terms “defeat-ist in the short term and suicidal in thelong term?”Indeed, we may ask whether it is“foolish” to suspect that the recent in-terest some Jews have shown towardpro-white activism is merely an attemptto promote their own group interestswithin the racialist movement. Are theyattempting to twist the ideology and di-rection of this movement in a directionmore conducive to long-term Jewish in-terests? We ignore the lessons given byDr. MacDonald at our peril.E. Delahanty, Chicago, Il.Sir – While Kevin MacDonald isprobably on to something in his expla-nation for the Jewish role in the declineof white people and their culture, I amsurprised AR did not take a more criti-cal look at his thesis. A glance at your OTempora section for the month of Marchwill show a cowardly university presi-dent named Garland, a pandering chief executive named Adamson, and a Gov-ernor named Davis who is giving awayour tax money to illegal Mexicans.These men are all WASPs in positionsof power and they are doing a fine jobof maligning our race and culture.As Mr. Hornbeck briefly points out,the pages and conferences of AR arefilled with names like Levin, Braun,Auster, Gottfried and Schiller. EvenRobert Weissberg, while he may dis-agree with some aspects of AR, fightsmulticulturalism and political correct-ness at the University of Illinois. Theseare men who put their careers on the lineto fight the anti-white forces that areascendant throughout the Westernworld. Indeed, if we ever do regain ournerve and racial identity, Jewish intel-lectuals will probably deserve a lot of credit.Name Withheld, Cheshire, Ct.Sir – The role of Jews in pushing forthe destruction of America is obviousto anyone able to identify Jews. My hopeis that innocent Jews will not suffer forthe crimes of the guilty. Also, I think itwould be a grave mistake to cite the roleof Jews as the
factor in the dissolu-tion of white America. The victory of

Jared Taylor, EditorJames P. Lubinskas, Assistant EditorGeorge McDaniel, Web Page Editorthe Modernists in the Protestant denomi-nations and Catholic hierarchy was cen-tral to the process of browbeating andbrainwashing their flocks. Also, manymajor actors who were not Jewish haveplayed important parts. H.L. Mencken,for example, wielded his savage penagainst Anglo-Saxon America, makinggoy-bashing chic. Pragmatist philoso-pher and “educator” John Dewey alsoplayed an important role in attacking thewhite identity.
such people must beexposed. Finally, the fact that youngpeople throughout the world–includingJapan, Brazil, Spain, Egypt, etc.–haveall sought to abandon their religions andtheir own particularity in favor of “hip-hop” hedonism and nihilism is a sign thata greater spirit is at work.Andrew Roesell, Springfield, Va.Sir – I wonder if Kevin MacDonald(and his reviewer Stanley Hornbeck)haven’t erred by not questioning moredeeply whether a multicultural Americawithout any numerically dominant eth-nic group is really in the interest of American Jews. It is a well-establishedfact that blacks express anti-Semitic at-titudes more readily than white Chris-tians–this despite (or perhaps becauseof) the extensive Jewish involvement inthe civil rights movement. And clearlythe multi-ethnic America brought aboutby high rates of non-European immigra-tion raises the ethnic consciousness of all groups in society, while rendering tra-ditional melting pot notions of Ameri-can nationality dated and nearly irrel-evant. A more ethnically consciousAmerica is more likely to become awareof the great social influence of Jews,despite their small numbers and perhapsalso to become sensitive to the ways inwhich Jewish interests might clash withthose of other ethnic groups. To men-tion one obvious example, we are nowimporting by immigration an Arab andMuslim lobby, likely to push as vigor-ously for the United States to favor Arabinterests in the Middle East as Jews havepushed for Israeli interests. Can such aresult–brought about solely by the openborders immigration laws which Jewshave done so much to bring about–real-ly serve Jewish interests?Name Withheld, New York, N.Y.Sir – I write in anticipation that youwill be printing a number of letters fromreaders saying that Stanley Hornbeck’sreview is too soft, and that Jews are theonly real problem we have and shouldbe dealt with accordingly. But to takethis position is to conclude that Jews arenot white, that they are no more a partof Western Civilization than are Bantusor Malays. Who can seriously arguethis? They are genetically part of ourrace, and have contributed ever since theMiddle Ages–for good and for ill–to ourcivilization.No one is more conscious than I of the effect of Jews as a group on the so-cieties in which they have lived, but lib-eral foolishness is not unique to Jewsnor inherent to Jews. I see them as, in-deed, a problem child in the family of Western man, but of our family none-theless. They are wayward brethren,over whose shortcomings we should notpass in silence, but we are bound to themby ties of history, culture, and blood.Jews can and do join our struggle; let uswelcome them as comrades.François Boyer, Quebec City, CanadaSir – A book like Kevin MacDonald’s
The Culture of Critique
has been a longtime coming, since Jews have been ba-sically exempt from critical analysis eversince the Holocaust. Even though thereis some merit in Prof. MacDonald’s ar-gument as summarized by Mr. Horn-beck, we do not believe Jews supportleft-wing causes because of their desireto strengthen the Jewish community. If his argument were true, those who holdthe most left-wing views would be thosewho were the most pious Jews. That isnot the case. Generally, the Jews whohave had the views Prof. MacDonalddescribes are those who have abandonedthe practice of Judaism and have assimi-lated into the mainstream of secular so-ciety. In many cases, these Jews actu-ally have contempt for their religiousand cultural brethren. Moreover, Prof.MacDonald picks and chooses Jews whonicely fit his theory and excludes those,like the co-author of the
 Bell Curve
, Ri-chard Herrnstein, who do not.Wouldn’t people who support univer-salist values such as Socialism, egalitari-anism and Communism welcome a so-ciety in which all religious differenceswere eliminated? Jews would certainlydisappear as a people in such a society.And in fact secular Jews have been in-termarrying with gentiles for the lastgeneration at rates exceeding 50 percent.To quote Friedrich Nietzsche, “Jewswant and wish, even with some impor-tunity, to be absorbed and assimilatedby Europe; they long to be fixed, per-mitted, respected, somewhere at longlast, putting an end to the nomad’s life.”Needless to say, assimilation has hada very troubled history. Jews felt aliento all they encountered–Church, culture,European backwardness–living, as theydid, among people who were bound upwith the soil and the idea of a father-land. At the same time, Europeans feltthat Jews were perpetual aliens, an un-welcome presence. A deadly hatred thusgrew up. The state and church kept outJews, who created a state within a stateand despised the host people. Jews alsohad their own morality–the morality of the oppressed–which gave them the au-thority of the righteous. Increasingly thereligious component of that moralityfaded, but the morality itself remained.It justified the Jews’ miserable situationas noble and superior, and fostered re-sentment of the host people.As Nietzsche writes in
Genealogy of  Morals,
