I was humbled to find out my book (The Black Man’s Guide Outof Poverty), and the issue of whether I was a racist or not were topics for two episodes of Obsidian Radio. Obviously, because of the efforts I put into writing the Black Man’s Guide Out of Poverty as well as that whole minor thing of being called a racist, I wanted to defend myself against your listener Vector 313 (and those who may agree with him).
In short, I need Vector 313 and everybody who agrees with him (that I am a racist for writing this book) to, step back, clear your minds, and ask themselves a very simple question:
“A guy wrote a book titled
THE BLACK MAN’S GUIDE OUT OF POVERTY
AND HE’S RACIST????”
Do you hear yourselves?
“How to Make the Black Man Down.”
“How to Keep the Black Man in Poverty.”
“The Black Man’s Guide OUT of Poverty.”
You are accusing an individual, who wrote a book that is intended to help black men, which is the antithesis of racist, a racist.
Another minor complaint I noticed from Mr. Vector 313 was that the Manosphere does not care or is not for black men. That it’s largely a white boys’ club and black men are neither welcome nor allowed.
But when one of the more prominent members of The Manosphere (that would be me) takes the time to combine his expertise in economic and finance, with the consultation and advice from man young black men, to author a how to manual with the express purpose of helping young black men lead a better life than he did, just because the author is white, THAT DOESN’T COUNT????
What more was Mr. Vector 313 looking for? Perhaps a donation of 5 pints of blood and a kidney?
Here is the sad truth. I can’t argue with the Vector 313’s of the world because they’re insane. They have racism on the brain. They are trained to see racism, even when there is a genuine and sincere offer to help, a genuine and sincere olive branch of comradery, a genuine and sincere attempt to help a fellow man. And while I’d like to say that Vector 313 is in a small minority, unfortunately if I use book reviews as a proxy, nearly 40% of black men view a book that is designed to HELP THEM, as racist simply because it was written by a white guy.
Of course, I predicted this, but it still doesn’t make it any less pitiful and sad. 40% of the black population is going to reject help simply because it comes from a white guy (which, by the way, IS the epitome of racism). But that’s fine. Because while 40% may continue on the ways of the past, doomed to repeat it, and ignore potentially successful ways to enrich themselves and escape poverty, 60% won’t. 60% are at least open-minded enough to “give anything a try.” 60% are thankful that a (GASP!) white guy took the time to write a book specifically for them. 60% are going to read it, and 60% of them are going to improve their finances, not to mention their mental health, romantic health, family lives, and racial relations with other races.
So to the Mr. Vector 313’s of the world, who are very offended and are (predictably) used to guilty, SWPL, white people rushing to grovel, beg, apologize and ask “what they did to offend you?”
Obviously, being nice, sincere, and giving two shits about you doesn’t work with you. Trying to help only results in an accusation of racism (because you disagree with the message) which is not only unjust, but insulting. So fuck off. Don’t want help? Fine. Nobody's forcing you to read the book. You hack away at life using that same ole same ole “wisdom” that has FAILED to close the
gaps in the past 60 years.
Keep thinking doing the same thing over and over again will result in different results.
And keep viewing the world through racist glasses that makes you so ignorant you refuse help just because its origins are white.
Because as I’ve said before “It ain’t my life you’re ruining. It’s yours.”
Ergo, I kindly and humbly ask you to reconsider, reread the book IN ITS ENTIRETY, and at least permit yourself the right to entertain ideas you may find disagreeable ESPECIALLY if they are designed and intended to help you.
