Having established that there is nothing unchristian about recognizing racial differences, we now come to the question of how to apply this knowledge of racial reality.
Once again, let us consider a hypothetical situation where race is not a factor. Imagine an all white city. In this city there is a public bus service, and the city government has decided that mentally disabled individuals should not be allowed to become bus drivers. But in this city, there is a group of misled Christians who have declared that because God requires us to love the mentally disabled, the mentally disabled should be given equal opportunity. Convinced by this argument, the city government starts employing the mentally disabled as bus drivers. The buses no longer run on time, and the number of traffic accidents increases, resulting in many deaths and injuries.
The reader might object that this scenario is ridiculous, but it is exactly the same as the situation we currently face. When black and brown people move into a community, crime goes up and the quality of public services goes down. Having a black neighborhood in your city means that more people will be raped and murdered, and that many public services will become unusable. These are empirical facts. Debating about why black and brown people act this way is beside the point. It would be like debating the causes of mental disability, as if the cause of this disability could have some bearing on whether or not to entrust the mentally disabled with important responsibilities. Even if there potentially could be a cure for mental disability, until that cure is found, it would be criminally negligent to put the mentally disabled in a position where they could harm innocent people.
When you lend your support to the demands for more diversity and more integration, you must realize that the policies you are promoting will result in death and misery for innocent people. This is far from Christian love. And what is is even worse, this lack of compassion for our fellow man is almost always accompanied by the grossest hypocrisy since many Christians who promote diversity are content to impose diversity on others while they themselves live safely in mostly white communities.
To illustrate this point, imagine that your sixteen-year-old daughter has to walk home by herself at night. She has two options, to walk through a neighborhood that is safe, or to walk through a neighborhood that is heavily “diverse.” Which path home would you suggest to her? If you would tell her to take the safe route, consider that when you demand more “diversity,” you are ensuring that some poor white family will be trapped in a situation where there is no safe route home for their daughter. Their entire city has become “diverse,” and every street has become dangerous. When you promote “diversity,” you are doing to a White family what you would never do to your own. You are doing unto others what you would never do unto yourself.
As for the treatment of non-whites, we must understand that there are limitations on the principle that we are to treat others as we ourselves wish to be treated. For example, no one would want to be in jail, but that does not mean we let every criminal go free; and no one would want his city to be bombed, but that does not mean we must never go to war. Clearly it is our duty to preserve justice and to promote the common good of our nation and of all mankind. It is equally clear that the unhealthy desires of those who are in rebellion to God and His created order should not be indulged.
All social policy that starts from the false premise of racial equality only brings more pain and suffering to all parties involved. If we really want to help blacks and other non-whites we must honestly confront the root of their problems. The “help” that has been given them over the last 50 years has done much more harm than good. The most loving thing we can do when dealing with blacks is to recognize their racial limitations and to shape policy based on this reality. It is not loving to put a mentally handicapped child in a classroom full of advanced students and expect him to perform like his peers. The decision to “segregate” mentally handicapped children into separate classes where their needs can be met is not motivated by “hate.” The truth of racial differences must be the starting point for all racial policy and for all attempts at racial reconciliation. If we build on the sandy foundation of the Utopian daydream of total racial equality, then we will only reap more sorrow.
