Abortion and self-loathing blacks

black_babyThere’s a story out of Santa Barbara today about a UC Santa Barbara professor who went berserk in a campus free-speech area when she saw a pro-Life display with graphic pictures of aborted fetuses.  She tried to lead a mob against it, grabbed a display and ran off with it, and then got into a physical altercation with a 16-year-old.  And just who was this professor?

The professor at the heart of the controversy is Mireille Miller-Young, an associate professor whose area of emphasis is black cultural studies, pornography and sex work, according to her faculty webpage. She could not be reached for comment Tuesday by The College Fix.

A check at her website confirms that she’s not a white person dabbling in black cultural studies but is, instead, a black person.

So, to recap:  A black woman who’s entire intellectual life revolves about being black violently attacked an anti-abortion display.  Gawd, she must really hate herself.  And no, she doesn’t hate herself because of her lack of self-control; she clearly hates herself because she’s black.

Just to clarify what seems like a rather blithe conclusion, let me add some other facts to the mix:

The number of black babies aborted in New York in 2012 –31,328 — was greater than the number of black babies born in New York in 2012 –24,758.  Moreover, although blacks are only 25% of the New York population, 42% of all New York abortions were black babies.

Between 1994 and 2010, black Mississippi women aborted 39,000 fetuses.  Over the same period, white women aborted 14,500 fetuses.  Put another way, over a 16 year period, black women had abortions at a rate more than twice that of white women.  While blacks make up 37% of Mississippi’s population, they accounted for 72% of its abortions.

In 2011, throughout  the entire US, 7,380 blacks were homicide victims.  So yes, these posters are correct:

We often speak of self-loathing Jews, people such as George Soros or Noam Chomsky, who are deeply hostile to Judaism and Israel. We don’t speak often enough about self-loathing blacks. Only someone deeply conflicted about herself and her place in society would violently attack members of an organization that are working hard to save tens of thousands of black children annually from a premature death.

You know that I’m not hardcore pro-Life.  Instead, I’m a former abortion supporter who is finding it harder and harder to carve out any legitimate moral and intellectual ground to support America’s abortion culture.  People such as Professor Miller-Young are facing the cognitive dissonance of abortion, not be sitting back and reevaluating the facts and revisiting their values, but by engaging in violence so that they can avoid that kind of reevaluation.  (It is, I should add, a painful process.)

    This is all so incredibly tragic…..and evil.
     
    I can’t think too much about it, or I just weep.
     
    I donate my pittance, and I pray….and I talk to people who aren’t thinking carefully about it.

    Earl said what I wanted to say…..if I think about it too much, I weep.
     What happens to a culture when the mindset allows, encourages murder as a remedy for careless behavior?   Calling it something else stinks!

    This is only a minor part of the Left’s evil. Wait until people realize the true nature of the Left. It’s even harder to grasp than this.
     
    True understanding is limited by human rationality and self defense methods. To truly understand the universe, is to be truly destroyed by that comprehension, and the human mind knowingly defends itself against this awareness.
     
    That’s why people don’t want to think about it. That’s why they ignore it. That’s why they make up excuses for it.
     
    Re conditioning the human mind to look straight up at truth is like looking straight at the sun. One must defeat the fear of death, the fear of blindness, and harness the rational and irrational powers of the mind and body first.
     
    Accept the consequences. Evil has already accepted the consequences of Victory over humanity.

    I think one of the things that set this woman off was the photos of aborted babies. I’ve read many accounts of leftists going ballistic when such pictures are displayed, because they so shockingly show what the euphemism “choice” really means.
     
    One of the common justifications you hear for the left’s propensity to stifle and censor is that certain speech can make people feel offended, uncomfortable, or threatened. In most cases this is the left’s red herring for shutting down dissent, but it also reveals a deeper motivation: Nobody likes to be reminded of his transgressions or moral failings. When we are, it can be a highly disruptive, emotionally devastating moment that calls into question all the fine and nice things we like to think of ourselves.
     
    Looking at a photo of a baby that has been torn limb to limb for the offense of getting in the way can set off a wave of revulsion—even worse, self-examination—that can unhinge an already unbalanced woman like this professor.

    I used to be pro-abortion by default, just buying the “who are you to tell me what to do with my body” line without thinking about it too much.It’s been a long journey to my current position.
    In the last 6 years or so the abortion supporters’ mask has slipped numerous times (such as at the 2012 DNC), and these people are really more of death cult with their unbridled enthusiasm for killing babies. Doesn’t matter if they’re healthy (and fully-formed) but unwanted, or defective (Downs, etc.) and wanted, they want to the right to kill them for simply being  an inconvenience to the mother or to society.And they’re willing to forgive any transgression in order to keep abortion legal, whether its supporting creepy politicians (e.g.Kennedy, Clinton) or enabling child-rapists and pimps (with Planned Parenthood providing abortions, even to minors, no questions asked). There really is an evilness in abortion and its strident supporters that has become impossible to ignore.
    I don’t know if the high rate of abortion in the black community is a symptom of self-hatred or just that the idea of family within this community has been more effectively destroyed than in other communities. It’s just so sad.

      “wanted, they want to the right to kill them for simply being  an inconvenience to the mother or to society.”
       
      It’s not merely that. It can be said that arms merchants sell weapons to both sides because they like seeing war and devastation, but the inner hidden motivation that underlies the economic sustainability model that is without the profits from the war, there would be no existence for arms merchants.
       
      Abortion and Planned Parenthood is run on money. ANd to get that money, requires blood sacrifices. It is not merely an isolated case of blood lust. Sustained economic blood lust is slightly different.
       
      The high rate of abortion in black communities was intentionally planned by Planned P, because the founder Sanger wanted to get rid of black people. In a way that is sustainable, economically. The black people pay to be genocided.

        You’re right that the profit side of abortion is always conveniently ignored.
        However, I’m especially disturbed by the sheer ugliness of abortion activists, that this one issue seems to have a way of consuming one’s soul. I doubt Gwyneth Paltrow and her mother make much money (if any) for their annual Mother’s Day Planned Parenthood campaign (which is just disgusting). There was no profit motive for so many people sneering that Sarah Palin should’ve aborted Trig. And yet once these people embrace abortion, somehow other forms of ugliness become justified (such as attacking pro-lifers). Zombie has captured this ugliness quite effectively these are damaged people:

        It’s become clear to me that abortion has opened the door for making the desire for an innocent to be put to death acceptable in polite society. And from that stems a lot of other equally ugly scenarios, such as the Liverpool Care Pathway, the Groningen Protocol, or even Hitler’s T4 (to go all Godwin on this post). I used to think abortion was just one of those agree to disagree issues, but at its roots, I now believe it is a much bigger deal than simply “choice”; it shapes (or merely illuminates?) how much value one places on their fellow man’s life.

          The abortion doctors receive most of the funding and Planned Parenthood honchos living it rich on the mansions get the rest.
           
          The fund raisers and the cannonfodder at the front which is what most people see, and only see, derive a different benefit. Namely, the benefit of co-dependence, where their sins are forgiven so long as they enable the drug user and serial killer. In so far as it is similar to the relationship between kidnapped and kidnapper via Stockholm Syndrome, this is one relationship where Leftists willingly participated.
          Abortion would have merely been a political issue, if not for the Left. The Left remakes all things into a war for survival, not merely an issue to disagree on.

    “I don’t know if the high rate of abortion in the black community is a symptom of self-hatred or just that the idea of family within this community has been more effectively destroyed than in other communities.”
     
    I’d say the second one, Libby. The welfare culture that the Democrats imposed on blacks not only cut marriage and fathers out of the act, it led to a perverse sort of status system where a black girl who can get pregnant rises in esteem because she’s now ready to get subsidies for her illegitimate children and “live on her own” (sic).
     
    But sometimes the girl isn’t quite ready to be a mom, so the Democrats have created an alternative that relieves her of the burdens of pregnancy and motherhood: the abortuary. Either way, the Democrats win: Hooking blacks on welfare and victimhood assures a a captive and compliant voting bloc; hooking them on consequence-free sex simply reinforces the dependency.

    Charles Martel said, “Nobody likes to be reminded of his transgressions or moral failings.”
     
    And with that single sentence, the Hammer put his finger square on the underlying reason for the virulent hatred expressed toward Christians and Jews by the Progressive Left. It’s a hatred nurtured by an underlying guilt.

    @Libby:  It doesn’t matter all of those things you listed, plus one more — it doesn’t matter if the baby is actually BORN!  Infanticide has been legitimated….and approved even by the man who got elected our President.
     
    It’s a Brave New World, baby!!
     
    How did I get here?

    On any article/story/social media comment I see that sparks a debate on abortion, I see at least one woman saying, “Just because we’re pro-choice doesn’t mean we’re pro-abortion.” And on any story about a mom that chose to keep a baby through terrible circumstances and is now relating the blessing it all became, there is usually more than one, “And thank goodness she had the CHOICE!” – focusing only on that.
     
    I have to break these arguments up in my head. Okay, the CHOICE was: let my baby live, or kill my baby. Thank goodness she had the agency to choose to let her baby live. Really? Has this all brought us to a time that we should fear the reality in our lives of the horror stories from China?
    Okay, pro-choice is not pro-abortion. Again, “I support the choice to let a baby live or to kill it.” What is the reason for throwing in your approval of not aborting? Is the ability to choose that in danger? Is it unpopular? Just admit it: you support any woman/girl/forcer in killing her baby on any whim.
