Hard Work or Hardly Working? How White People Got So Rich Part I


by The Historical Research Department of the Nation of Islam

The foundation of American White supremacy sits tenuously on a rickety base of lies and deceptions about how Whites gained their wealth and status. A century and a half after slavery the median wealth of White families is $100,000; for Black families, it's $5,000. The belief that Whites achieved this 20-1 wealth advantage by HARD WORK is an absurd and a historical fantasy. Nonetheless, the airwaves are filled with the self-righteous pronouncements of Caucasian commentators anxious to “advise” Blacks to “work hard” and to “pull themselves up by their bootstraps” if they want to succeed in America. Not only do they seek to invent a fraudulent fairy tale that whitewashes a very bloody legacy, but they also aim to reaffirm the notion that “non-Whites” are naturally inferior and lazy and are thus responsible for having comparatively nothing. The truth is a whole lot nastier than that.

The group that has always posed as the “best friends of Black people” is most fond of making this argument, yet the Jews are guilty of the worst abuses of the slavery and Jim Crow systems of White empowerment. Any reader of The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Vol. 2, will discover that Jewish wealth in America was so completely dependent on Black slavery that their incessant Jewish mantra of “hard work” will be forever consigned to mythology. The mechanisms of government and private industry that were constructed to specifically hamstring Black prospects for success after slavery are extraordinary. In harmony, government and private industry, and all sectors of American society, instituted a series of White Affirmative Action programs for the benefit of WHITE EURO-AMERICANS ONLY, programs which gave them material advantages that had nothing whatever to do with either merit or “hard work.”

The Messenger of Allah, The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad—The Messiah—said: “Observe the operations of the white man. He is successful. He makes no excuses for his failures. He works hard in a collective manner. You do the same.”

This is the first of a four-part observation of the operations of the White man. It will take us on a journey through the reactive mind of the racial sociopaths who have worked hard in a collective manner to construct our Black American reality. And through this process we will examine just some of the acts and policies that are the nuts and bolts of the White man's dubious “superiority.”
