52.2 percent of all homicides in the United States were committed by blacks. Nearly all were committed by black males ages 18 to 49 who comprise about four percent of the nation’s population.
Nonetheless the media have us convinced that our nation is plagued with the curse of white racism.
How do they get away with it?
Years ago I noted on my web site, DailyKenn.com, that about one-third of the lynching victims in the United States were white. The narrative that lynching was an exclusive franchise of white bigots is simply not true. Nonetheless the media coupled with the nation’s government education complex keeps the false narrative alive.
Why do we not see through their delusion?
There were 3,446 blacks lynched during the 86-year lynching era (1882 through 1968).
Fast forward to the 21st century.
Using 2013 FBI statistics as our source, we know there have been about 187 homicides each month in which the victim and perpetrator are both known to be black. We calculate that blacks kill more blacks over a 19-month period than were lynched during the 86-year lynching era.
The media successfully lie by omission. They create a false reality in which police are slaughtering young black males at an alarming rate.
University of Toledo criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson used federal government data to conclude that, on an annual average, 112 blacks are killed by legal police intervention. That is, for every black male legally killed during police interventions, 20 males are murdered by other blacks.
The media have us convinced there is an epidemic of black males being slaughtered by cops. The real epidemic of black-on-black homicides is either totally obscured or blamed on the proliferation of guns.
Why do we believe the media?
The answer may be found in human psychology.
In 1996 Prof. Alan Sokal submitted a scholarly paper to an academic journal.
Once the article was published, Sokal revealed the paper was a hoax. By utilizing academic sounding terminology he was able to frame nonsensical concepts into a believable context.
The regressive left does the same. I call it the Sokal hoax.
The delusions successfully perpetuated by the regressive left, the media, and the government education complex transcend disinformation regarding black crime.
Here is a short list of examples:
• Climate change, formerly known as “global warming” is a Sokal Hoax.
It is the apocalypse of the cultural Marxism cult. By framing this pseudo-science in academic terminology, the hoax sounds real.
The founder of Green Peace, Dr. Patrick Moore, actually touts the advantages of CO2 emissions. The bounty of the world’s crop harvest that has staved off massive starvation in recent decades can be attributed, in part, to increased CO2 emissions.
• White privilege is a Sokal Hoax.
The regressive left implants this cardinal doctrine of the cultural Marxism cult into the minds of Americans at every opportunity. Ignored is the reality that the entire human race is privileged to be living at this point in time in history. We are privileged to have advanced health care never before realized throughout human existence. The abject poverty level is at an all-time low. The technological life enhancements created by Western culture have significantly improved the quality of living for every human.
• Intelligence disparity denial is a Sokal hoax.
To my knowledge there has never been a field of study as extensive of human intelligence. The intelligence disparity between races is a settled science. Nonetheless, the regressive left pretends that income disparities are due to social injustice rather than biology.

• Disparate impact is a Sokal hoax.
The notion is that black students are unfairly disciplined more frequently and more severely than their white classmates. The unfairness affects the ability of blacks to earn income on a parity with whites later in life. The outcome, they say, is economic disparity. Disciplining black students, therefore, creates a disparate impact. In reality black students are disciplined more than whites for the same reason male students are disciplined more than female students: They are more likely to break rules.
The above are only a few examples of the Sokal hoax being perpetrated on gullible minds.
Others include pseudo-feminism. It uses Sokal-like terms such as “white male privilege”, “patriarchal society”, and “objectifying women”.
We sometimes encounter the “trans-generational trauma caused by slavery” nonsense and “race is a social construct”.
The regressive left prefers to use “indigenous people” as a replacement for “native Americans” that replaced “Indians.” “Native American” no longer fits the globalist narrative. (Expect “African American” to become a discarded term in the near future. Like “native American” it implicitly endorses nationalism rather than globalism.)
In short, the regressive left can be viewed as a massive Sokal hoax.
Sokal’s paper, by the way, was titled, “Transgressing the Boundaries: Toward a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity.”
