“Blood and revenge are hammering in my head.”Long Read: The Curse of Aaron

An excerpt on the mind virus infecting black Americans: The Curse of Aaron – by David Cole [HT: Commenter JWM]

Vengeance is in my heart, death in my hand,
Blood and revenge are hammering in my head.

But why? Why the anger and hatred? By not answering that question, Shakespeare has inadvertently given us the most relevant 21st-century black character of any playwright in history. A character living in a society in which he is afforded all possible opportunities, while—even as he takes advantage of those opportunities—he harbors nothing but hostility toward the majority population, even if he can point to no specific reason why they deserve such enmity. His very identity is based upon hatred of whites. There’s no tidy origin story, no specific wrong that’s being avenged or injury that served as a catalyst for the rage. There’s just an angry black man who looks gift horses in the mouth and yanks their teeth for pleasure. A black man who finds more satisfaction in being at war than he does from achieving success.

A black man who feels entitled to that war, even if he cannot name a single concrete reason why he should be.

Behold the black New York Times and Washington Post and MSNBC journalists and the black Biden administration officials and the black Hollywood producers and the black athletes and academics who live lives that would make most people green with envy, yet who seem to find fulfillment only in antiwhite, anti-West rage.

Vengeance is in my heart, death in my hand,
Blood and revenge are hammering in my head.

If you could hear the innermost thoughts of someone like the NYT’s Nikole Hannah-Jones, that’s exactly what would be playing on a loop.

Meghan Markle is Aaron in a way that’s almost too on-the-nose. Accepted into a royal house, she proceeded to destroy it from within, in the name of a righteous anger based on nothing more than a belief that she’s racially entitled to be destructive. Presented with a life of luxury and influence, she found greater satisfaction in sowing discord.

Of course, Markle’s an extreme (and, as I said, almost too perfect) example. Plus, in all ways that matter, she’s irrelevant; a bimbo actress–turned–figurehead royal–turned–“famous for being famous” tabloid fodder. The far more pressing matter is that the “Aaron attitude” is fast becoming the norm among everyday American blacks. In last week’s column, I wrote about the process of black radicalization. Aaron is the result of that radicalization.

For the leftist blacks, whites, and Jews who view themselves as shepherds of the black community, Aaron is the ideal, the goal of all the social engineering and propagandizing. Perpetually furious, blindly hateful, vengeful though not for any wrongs actually incurred, unmollified by opportunity or success, and obsessively focused on “tearing it down” while having no idea what to replace “it” with.

An important part of Aaron’s character arc is that he has no exit strategy. Having had no goal beyond destruction, once it becomes clear that his scheming has produced the desired results (the royal house is crumbling, and Titus’ last remaining son Lucius has joined with the Goths to lead an assault on the city), Aaron decides to pick up and leave (a luxury the New York Times Aarons might have, but inner-city Aarons don’t). He grabs his baby, his “son and heir” (the product of his trysts with Tamora), and hits the road.

Unfortunately for him, he’s caught by Lucius and the Goths. Lucius declares that the Moor and his offspring will be killed, a rather understandable response considering that Aaron orchestrated the murder of his brothers, the rape and maiming of his sister, and the dismemberment of his father.

“Save the child,” Aaron implores. In exchange, Aaron offers to reveal all the evils he’s done, every underhanded deed, every plot. “Things that highly may advantage thee to hear.” But only if Lucius swears that the child will be unharmed.

And now we come to my favorite part of the play. Lucius says:

Who should I swear by? Thou believest no god:
That granted, how canst thou believe an oath?

And Aaron essentially replies, indeed, an oath from me is worthless. But I know that you have a belief in morals and ethics. I know that if you give me your word, you’ll keep it,

For I know thou art religious
And hast a thing within thee called conscience.

Aaron despises white society. But he understands that these people he’s waged war against have a thing inside them that can be manipulated, an adherence to a set of values and beliefs. A conscience. Aaron knows how to use this weakness against them; their sense of morality, their allegiance to the rule of law. Their “do-gooder” mindset…

    These are the kind of people who would complain if you hung them with a new rope.

  • Vanderleun April 13, 2021, 11:24 AM

    To which the only answer is: “I’ll get you a new one next time.”

  • ghostsniper April 13, 2021, 11:51 AM

    But if you use that rope to drag them while on fire they’ll never complain at all….just scream.
    I’d pay good money to watch.

    Of course blacks are angry- its been well eatablished that uneducated and lesser-intellect people are quicker to anger and more prone to violence and crime.

    Maybe embarrassment is also a factor, as “Whites” were building great structures like pyramids, colosseums, castles, churches, aqueducts, roads, and intricate infrastructures THOUSANDS of years ago, yet some Africans are still actually living in mud & dung huts today.

    When first visited/discovered by the White man, Africans had no alphabet or form of written communication, no idea of mathematics, were still hunters and gatherers- without the knowledge or use of farming, and were as primitive as other races were 10,000+ years prior.

    The Bell Curve studies (now considered “RACIST” by Libs and Blacks) established that the average black I.Q. in America was average 80 points, and in Africa, a mere 70 points- 70 and under is considered to be “mentally retarded” by most Psychologists. The average Caucasian I.Q. in America is 104, and Asians are a even higher.

    Maybe Blacks are embarrassed that their own kind sold them to Whites and Middle-Easterers as slaves? Maybe they’re embarrassed because in America 61% of them are killed by abortions, the fact that 74% of their “fathers” abandon their offspring at birth, or that they murder each other off a hugely disproportionate rate? Or maybe because they’re only 12.9% of the population, yet (for decades) commit 54% of the murders and violent crimes in the USA?
    Or just maybe they’re just jealous of those whose past and present history and culture is way more successful, evolved, and developed.

    OR, maybe they’re sick and tired of Democrats promising them (for decades) that they will be lifted from the burdens of poverty, crime, ignorance, and “ghetto life,” and will somehow be magically transformed to living the utopian life that so many Caucasian, Conservative, rural-dwelling Americans enjoy.

    Years ago, I remember watching the old black & white movie called “Birth Of A Nation,” never guessing that it would end up being a sort of prophecy of today’s society.

    And as far as “equality” goes, there is not, and never will be such a thing- no matter who you are, there will always be those who are greater and lesser than you in every aspect of life.

    I say, Cole has quite been on fire here of late, no?

    Give whites a pile of bricks, they will build a city.

    Give blacks a city, they will create a pile of bricks.

    Is it racist to observe reality? I’m OK with that; “racist” having been coined by a communist, Lev Bronstein aka “Leon Trotsky”.

    Read the book “negroes in negroland” available as PDF on the wayback. Read the book.

    ALL the destructive behavior which blacks engage in today was ever thus. Even Booker T Washington in “Working with the Hands” & “Up from slavery” acknowledge this truth.

    Judge based on character, not color.

    Not a bad dream irregardless of the race, creed, color, sexual persuasion, etc., etc., of the dreamer.

    Paraphrasing LBJ: Fire up a race disgrace we’ll have those namby pambies bickerin’ with each other for the next 100 years while we sit in the cat bird seat.

    Cole does an excellent analysis of the modern American black man.
    Racial hysteria and de-platforming to follow in ……3, 2, 1

    Apropos of the leftist whites “who view themselves as shepherds of the black community”: the latest scheme from the CRT crowd in medicine is to offer preferential care to BIPOC cardiology patients while withholding it from patients of pallor. Two cardiologists at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, one a graduate of Ben-Gurion University’s medical school and the other a graduate of Penn’s med school, published an article in the Boston Review titled “An Antiracist Agenda for Medicine.”
    Sample: “Offering preferential care based on race or ethnicity may elicit legal challenges from our system of colorblind law. But given the ample current evidence that our health, judicial, and other systems already unfairly preference people who are white, we believe—following the ethical framework of Zack and others—that our approach is corrective and therefore mandated. We encourage other institutions to proceed confidently on behalf of equity and racial justice, with backing provided by recent White House executive orders.” [italics added]

    Can’t help wondering what these SJW MDs would do if Biden showed up in their cardiology clinic.

    I found Negros in Negroland in a free download PDF format. Portions of it were not available but the overall content was available. I skimmed small segments of it and then ordered a full copy from Amazon. First published in 1868 (I believe) N-i-N is a collection of entries on dozens of different aspects of the N, taken from the diaries and journals of men who explored Africa when it was still worth seeing.

    I can’t provide much of a report on it but from what I’ve read things ain’t changed all that much, notwithstanding free cell phones and EBT cards.

    Joe Sobran got it right nigh on a quarter of a century ago:

    “Western man towers over the rest of the world in ways so large as to be almost inexpressible. It’s Western exploration, science, and conquest that have revealed the world to itself.

    Other races feel like subjects of Western power long after colonialism, imperialism, and slavery have disappeared.

    The charge of racism puzzles whites who feel not hostility, but only baffled goodwill, because they don’t grasp what it really means: humiliation.

    The white man presents an image of superiority even when he isn’t conscious of it. And, superiority excites envy.

    Destroying white civilization is the inmost desire of the league of designated victims we call minorities.”
    Joseph Sobran, April 1997
