Adventures in trendsetting

In this rather insightful article, Star Parker lays out the results of Americans consciously elevating minority (read: black and brown) cultures while debasing their majority white culture.

Here's an excerpt:

Blacks are not given enough credit for being trendsetters in America.

Blacks started playing the blues, jazz, and R&B, then the rest of America started playing them.

Blacks discovered the politics of victimhood, then the rest of America started catching on.

Black women got into having babies without marriage. Then white women started getting into it (the incidence of white out-of-wedlock births today -- almost 30 percent -- is higher than the black rate in the 1960s).

Blacks bought into dependency and the welfare state. Now the rest of America has bought in.
