Water ("Is a Human Right that White People Must Pay for") World: The NAACP Gets Involved on Behalf of 83% Black Detroit Citizen's Refusal to Pay Their Water Bills

The collapse of Detroit was racial, with high rates of black crime motivating white flight. 

The city is now less than eight percent white and nearly 85 percent black. 
Darwin's Shadow: There's not much else to say about an 83 percent city black city descending into third world levels of civilization

It's a metropolis whose public offices (judicial, executive, and legislative) are completely dominated by black employees and black department heads.

Detroit is not union run. 

Detroit is not Democrat run. 

Detroit is black-run, for the expressed benefit of blacks, and only blacks. 

The following story needed this introduction, for clarity and transparency. [NAACP: Detroit water shutoffs are racially motivated, Washington Times, 7-22-14]:
A class-action suit has been filed against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that the NAACP Legal Defense Fund says are racially motivated. 
The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. 
There are concerns the shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the Defense Fund’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens — the majority of whom are African-American here in Detroit.”Attorney Alice Jennings, who filed the lawsuit on behalf of Detroit residents, agreed the shutoffs were a racial issue. 
“These companies are basically Caucasian companies,” she told the station. “The folks who are being cut off are almost one hundred percent African-American.” 
Detroitannounced Monday that it would suspend its aggressive policy of cutting off water for the next 15 days, but the NAACP said in a press release Monday that it’s not enough. They also want the financial aid program for Detroit’s neediest people to be reformed. 
Disclosure of the 15-day moratorium was made in bankruptcy court — three days after an estimated 2,000 people took to downtown streets to protest the shutoffs. “Avengers” actor Mark Ruffalo made a surprise appearance at the rally, hoping to “shed a little light on what’s happening” in Detroit.
Pay for individual black people's water bills or else collectively make demands:

Reform or we march. 

March, and if our demands aren't met we riot. 

America is held hostage. 

The "folks who are being cut off are almost one hundred percent African-America," Alice Jennings, because almost one hundred percent of those with balances due on their unpaid water bills in 83 percent black Detroit are black...

Our future is held hostage, with the handcuffs of blackness ensuring our civilization is shackled to the  level of "civilization" blacks can attain. 

For years, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department has allowed unpaid water bills to pile up and free water to flow to primarily black people, but the city's bankruptcy in 2013 forced a cessation of this odd accounting oversight. 

Probably because someone knew black people, long accustomed to getting free water (and their way) wouldn't take too kindly to being told "no." [NAACP Legal Defense Fund: Detroit Water Service Shutoffs Are Discriminatory, CBS Detroit, 7-21-14]:
Talking to WWJ’s Sandra McNeil shortly after the announcement, [Detroit Water and Sewerage Department] spokesman Greg Eno admitted there’s no doubt that the department has been lax over the years, letting the bills pile up. 
He said people who now owe more than they can afford are being asked to come in and apply for assistance through the Water Affordability Program. 
Eno said, through, it’s not just free money. 
“It also teaches them, or works into their budget, monies that would be dedicated to their water bill, because they have to make a contribution every month,” he explained. “This is not a program where you get everything given to you and you contribute nothing.” 
Eno stressed, however, that not everyone in need will be able to get help. 
“We don’t have, you know, a bottomless cup of funds,” he said, adding that’s why it’s important that affected customers come in as soon as possible.
The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department aided the bankruptcy of Detroit by being lenient, admittedly for years, to primarily black customers who didn't pay their water bills.

The water kept flowing, as the bills piled up...

The Day the EBT Cards Runs Out is the moment nature reminds us all the fury of living continuously on the Malthusian Edge.

For years, large segments of the black population of Detroit has enjoyed virtually free water, with the cost of water redistributed to those stupid enough to paying for the service; now, because this service has been disconnected to those unwilling to pay their bill (an unfortunate side effect of the audit into why Detroit went bankrupt), the NAACP has declared enforcing the concept of payment for a service/good to be "discriminatory"...

Darwin's Shadow is falling across not just Detroit, but all of America.

Without Getting the Joke, the Indianapolis Media Celebrates a Peaceful "Indiana Black Expo" Weekend (No Mention of the Police-State Necessary for this to Occur...)

Go ahead and clap.

Give yourselves a standing ovation!

Pop the champagne and celebrate.
"Summer Celebration" is the code-word used by media for "Indiana Black Expo" -- no one dares get the joke (police presence evident...)

Just don’t demand an encore, because without the “armies on the streets” none of this would have been possible; and this type of resource allocation isn’t available every weekend, when the crime and mayhem found in Indianapolis is an undeclared exposition of blackness.

Let flow the celebratory language and laudatory verbiage for the self-control exerted by those attending the Indiana Black Expo in Indianapolis this past weekend, all courtesy of a police state built to guard against the genetic proclivities/predilections of those blacks in attendance.

Extra-lights, police “officers in helicopters, on bicycles and on horseback to help keep order,” the Department of Homeland Security deploying a mobile command center… measures necessary for the black cultural event to take place in a peaceful manner.

Imagine a people whose individual actions require a permanent chaperone to keep some form of peace, a pitiful reminder of why adolescent co-ed parties require parental supervision and why you must be 21 years of age to drink.

Self-control.

Personal responsibility.

Impulse control and future-time orientation.

Axiomatic for large congregations of white people at implicit white cultural events, but at an explicitly black event like the Indiana Black Expo, the lack of the self-control, personal responsibility, and impulse control by those in attendance requires constant vigilance by the state to maintain law and order. [Security to be tight at Expo event's final weekend, NWITimes.com, 7-18-14]:
Public safety officials have taken a broad approach to security by trying to address the social issues that often breed violence in addition to adding extra patrols. Sgt. Kendale Adams said uniformed and plainclothes officers will be downtown, and off-duty officers hired by the municipal transit service will keep watch at bus stops. 
"We'll obviously be out in large numbers," Adams said. 
And so, with an army of police (in uniform, on horseback, in police cars, hovering overhead in a helicopter, and in plainclothes), volunteers (from the 10 Point Coalition), and a Homeland Security command center, those in charge of the Indiana Black Expo can – with a straight face – call the event a success… [Organizers call 2014 Indiana Black Expo a success, WishTV.com, 7-21-14]:
The 2014 Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration wrapped up Sunday night and event organizers are calling this year’s expo a success. IBE CEO and President Tanya Bell says she never doubted this year’s event would be safe and successful. The teamwork between IBE and IMPD ensured that Summer Celebration was just that. 
“It’s an opportunity for us to come out and celebrate our culture, our heritage, our history, our talents, the accomplishments that African Americans have made,” said Bell.
The Indianapolis Star, without publishing the exact of police patrolling the streets or amount of money spent by the taxpayers to provide security, published a glowing story about the “mellow” time attendees had, while the irony of a massive police-state necessary for such to transpire dripping from every word. [Calm, relaxed Black Expo eases into final day, Indy Star, 7-21-14]:
Jill Harris, a recent Indiana University graduate from Hobart, said…"You could really notice the police out there." I don't know if that's why it was so low-key out there, but I did like seeing them there." 
At most civilized events/expositions/cultural gathering/community celebrations, the police should be the last thing you notice.

But this isn’t a civilized population we are referring to, but a population gathering for a celebration of “the accomplishments that African Americans have made”: the Indiana Black Expo in Indianapolis, where an army of police are deployed just to psychologically overwhelm those attending into acquiescing to state control (as opposed to black control), as the ultimate reminder of the real accomplishment of individual black people.

Go ahead and clap.

Give yourselves a standing, sustained ovation!

Pop the champagne and celebrate!

Just remember: an encore of peace, serenity, and stability is impossible without the knowledge an entire police force has been dedicated to keep individual black people from exposing to the world just what the Indiana Black Expo doesn’t want to celebrate.

But what those putting on the Indiana Black Expo and immediately labeling it a "successful" event - requiring a massive police-state in the process just to stave off criminality - for the lack of violence, bullets, and body bags don't understand is that we in the white Diaspora of Post-America call it just another Tuesday in the world of implicit white events...

Magnificent Desolation: The Apollo Rocket versus the Mule Cart (A Precursor to the Water Bill Protests in 83% Black Detroit)

It's fitting that as the 45th anniversary of the initial moon landing, the successful Apollo 11 mission culminating on July 20, 1969 with Buzz Aldrin and Neal Armstrong walking on the moon, the 83 percent black city of Detroit sees protests over unpaid water bills. [Detroit's Water Cutoffs Spark Protests: Crackdown on Delinquent Customers Draws Public Ire, Wall Street Journal, 7-19-2014]:
Detroit's crackdown on delinquent water customers bubbled over with a public protest Friday following concerns voiced by a federal judge overseeing the city's historic bankruptcy case. 
Hundreds of people descended upon downtown Hart Plaza, with many migrating from a conference for progressive Democrats at the nearby Cobo Conference Center. 
"We need more water, not less water," said Democratic U.S. Rep. John Conyers, addressing the crowd through a bullhorn on a makeshift stage around the plaza's obelisk-like art installation. 
Opposition has been building in Detroit for months after officials at the city's Water and Sewerage Department in March said they would shut off water service to delinquent customers. Critics, including a United Nations panel, have said that water is a basic human right, especially in the nation's largest city to file for bankruptcy protection, one year ago. 
Even so, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes said this week in court that the water issue was generating bad publicity for the city and told the department to offer more repayment options.
"The Water issue was generating bad publicity for the city," said Judge Rhodes... 
From the July 31, 1969 of Jet magazine. 


Well, then tell the citizens of the 83 percent black city to pay their water bill, or else suffer the same fate as those non-black citizens across the country who refuse to pay their water utility bill: have it turned off.

Never forget, what Instrauation magazine dubbed "one of the sorrier moments in the saga of mankind was Reverend Abernathy leading a mule caravan to Cape Canaveral before the first manned moon landing. The money, he whined, should go to the poor and not be thrown away on space. (Faustian Lapse, June 1980, p. 20)

In another edition of the magazine, a writer wrote these words: 
Reporters wrote that it was "legitimate" for Rev. Ralph Abernathy, who is often treated as some kind of Negro deity, to take poor families and a symbolic mule team to Cape Kennedy to protest against the moon flight and its vast expenditure when so many earthlings live in poverty and squalor. With whites upon the threshold of the most fabulous voyage of exploration of all time, Negro poverty and white selfishness were the liberal-minority coalition's overriding consideration. The obscuring triviality of this obsessional view of the moon flight was and is truly astounding. Like all fixation or emotional arrests of the personality, it is a form of insanity - in this instance a mouse-like insanity, deliberately depreciating Nordic heroism and achievement. Once the insanity is properly implanted, it follows logically that if Ralph Abernathy's protest, which in reality was nothing more than a protest against the white man's incomparable superiority, was "legitimate," the space flights themselves were and are "illegitimate." (NASA: The Rocket versus the Mule, July 1978, p. 20 - 21)
Reverend Ralph Abernathy, the man who succeeded Martin Luther King as the chief agitator for blackness, was lauded in the pages of Jet magazine for his mule-cart procession (it should be noted this march against Apollo by blacks set the stage for the water bills protest we currently see in 83 percent black Detroit, and the mindset that marching will bend white civilization to accept any black demand). 
From the July 18, 2014 protest in 83 percent black Detroit against citizens there having to pay their overdue water bills...
Simeon Booker would write: 
Rev. Ralph Abernathy, the leader many predicted couldn't fill the shoes of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., became a giant for millions of Americans at Cape Kennedy. No project he has devised reached more people and served a role as his attendance at the launching of Apollo 11.  
There wasn't much enthusiasm among American blacks to follow the moon flight. Even though NASA spent billions in one of its precise managerial operations, its directors  disregarded equal opportunity programs. NASA has one of the poorest minority hiring among U.S. agencies.  
While following the activity at Cape Kennedy, a TV viewer sees very few - if any - black engineers, scientists, or computer programmers. On top of this, the vast outlay of money ($24 billion) to put a man on the moon emptied the U.S. treasury of fund for worthwhile earthly projects - like housing, welfare, schools and jobs.  
But Rev. Ralph Abernathy followed the example of his leader, Dr. King, to keep the faith. He refused to see millions of black boys and girls "give up" on the American Dream. He had to get to Cape Kennedy. He had to call the Cape "Holy Ground." He had to conclude: "The ground will be even more holy when we feed the poor." 
He and his followers bunched together, sang We Shall Overcome - some day. They trooped from the Cape, as the only major Negro participants in the launching.  
One highlight of the Cape launching was the confrontation of Abernathy and NASA's Thomas Paine. The meeting took place in an open field just inside the center's front gate. Abernathy, leading two mules humorously named Jim Eastland and George Wallace, was followed by hundreds of poor carrying picket signs. Paine listened to Abernathy's eloquent plea for the poor. Said Abernathy: "I'm profoundly moved by our nation's scientific achievements in space, and by the heroism of the three astronauts." Calling the moonshot "one of man's noblest ventures," Abernathy said: "But I have not come to Cape Kennedy merely to experience the thrill of this historic launching. I am here to demonstrate with poor people in a symbolic way against the tragic and inexcusable gulf that exists between America's technological abilities and our social injustices."  
Pain agreed with the poor peoples goals. [Jet, Blacks Scarce as Men on Moon at Launch, 7-31-1969, p. 6-9]
That NASA didn't implement EEOC goals as a priority ahead of landing men on the moon is the primary reason Apollo 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, and 17 saw 12 white men successfully walk on the moon, courtesy of the ingenious contributions of individual white people back home on earth.

Ebony magazine would publish an equally polemic, racial denunciation of the Apollo program:
Few efforts outside of war have caused such a sustained flexing of America's scientific, technological and industrial muscle as has the race to the moon. Since the late President John F. Kennedy promised in 1961 that an American would walk on the lunar surface before 1970, the nation has spent more than $24 billion and funneled the work of small armies of scientists, engineers, technicians, production workers and laborers toward Cape Kennedy.  
To many people, the purpose of the moon program - as well as its planning and execution - have seemed as remote as the astronaut's destination. Especially to the nation's black poor, watching on unpaid-for television sets in shacks and slums, the countdowns, the blastoffs, the orbiting and landings had the other-worldly aliens - though not the drama - of a science fiction movie. From Harlem to Watts, the first moon landing in July of last year was viewed cynically as one small step for "The Man," and probably a giant leap in the wrong direction for mankind. Large segments of the rest of the population, except perhaps at the time of the first landing, were merely bored. [How Blacks View Mankind's 'Giant Step': Space scientists, laymen see space program from different perspective, Ebony, September 1970, p. 33]
No blacks, in the eyes of Ebony writers, meant the landing was "boring" or illegitimate. 

 But the lack of implementing an agenda of affirmative action and EEOC mandated hires/promotions would catch up with NASA: 
Rev. Martin Luther King and Rev. Abernathy would be proud: They'll never stop marching, demanding more and more in the process, while civilization crumbles to the black mean

For the second time this month, a Senate committee expressed doubts about the sincerity of a NASA promise to improve its record of hiring minorities and women. 
Sen. Frank Moss (D. Utah) said yesterday, after a three-hour hearing before his Aeronautical and Space Sciences Committee that he intends to bring NASA back perhaps every three months to see how rapidly its record improves.  
NASA does not dispute claims that its minority employment, 5.6 percent as of last May... is the lowest of all government agencies.  
But after the agency outlined its Equal Employment Opportunity goals for 1974, several senators indicated they didn't think the goals justified NASA's statement that it was "deeply committed" to "equal opportunity." 
"I don't quite feel a sense of urgency," said Sen. Howard Metzenbaum (D. Ohio). "... I feel they're modest goals, and they haven't yet been worked down to the lower levels..." 
[George Lowe, NASA deputy administrator] replied that EEO was at the top of NASA's rarity list, but could not be accomplished "overnight." 
"What's even more disconcerting is to see NASA groping for sympathy with a continuing flow apologies and explanations," said Sen. James Abourezk (D. -S.D.).  
On Jan. 11, Sen. William Proxmire (D.- Wis.) ordered NASA to report quarterly on its EEO progress to his Senate Appropriations Subcommittee, which oversees NASA's budged. He cited "... NASA's extremely poor record in enforcing its equal employment opportunity program." [Senators Eye NASA EEO Goals, Washington Post, 1-25-1974]
You can land on the moon, explore other worlds and embark on the greatest journey in man's history, or dedicate every resource availability to advancing the cause of blackness thereby retarding all of the Apollo programs successes...

The stars or Detroit...

But this would change, with the desire to travel the road to infinity derailed by a national mandate to take the road to Detroit: 
Today NASA has bowed to pervasive minority racism. The announced Space Shuttle crews are largely a human zoo of minority groups in just the right percentages of each.  
It is true the billions of dollars on Apollo could have been spent on the "cities" as the liberals and minorities wanted, but there would have been no moon landing, no spinoff technology, no glorious achievement to remind us of who we are and what we can be. Just more blacks. 

After several Apollo flights, interest in space flagged. NASA proposals for regular moon flights, a lunar base, and a manned expedition to Mars in the 1980s were turned down. NASA became a holding operation, concentrating on unmanned missions such as the Viking landing on Mars and the flybys of Jupiter and Saturn. Engineers and scientists were laid off in the aerospace industry by the droves. Even Wernher Von Braun retired from NASA in 1972. [Instrauation, The Road To Infinity: The race factor in space flight, July 1980, p. 10]
$22 trillion later... blacks still demand more. For $24 billion, the Apollo program offered a glimpse of what whites can do when freed from the shackles of forever funding the advancement of blackness. 

"Just more blacks" is what we got, with the residents of 83 percent black Detroit believing paying a water bill is now beneath them, with free water a human right... [The Consequences of the "Great Society", NCPA.org, 7-10-14]:
In the 50 years since the onset of the "Great Society," the United States has spent nearly $22 trillion and implemented 80 welfare programs with the goal of reducing poverty. How has it worked? Not well, writes Edwin Feulner, founder of the Heritage Foundation.Material poverty has fallen over the last half-century, says Feulner. Today, the average poor household has food on the table, not to mention air-conditioning, cable television and Internet access. However, he explains that the War on Poverty also created negative incentives:
  • Welfare gave single mothers larger payments than married mothers, encouraging women not to marry the fathers of their children.
  • Children who grew up without both parents in their households began to see single-parenthood as normal.
We went to the moon for $24 billion; we breed an army of individuals who collectively believe paying for water is beneath them for $22 trillion...

I'd like to know the final thoughts of Wernher Von Braun as he left his NASA office for the last time in 1972, the NASA he knew and helped build - whose mandate once was navigating man to the heavens - replaced with the goal of safely navigating black people and other minority groups into the employ of the "space" administration.

Did he see the future he'd never live in reflected in the pitiful memory of the Poor People's Campaign demands from July 16, 1969 at Cape Kennedy, when a mule cart stood next to his Apollo 11 spacecraft (with Saturn V rocket system prepared to blast it into the heavens)?

Could he have known then the future wouldn't be the building of a base on the moon, the start of man's colonization of solar system, but the colonization of formerly first world cities by a black population incapable of sustaining the first world civilization whites left behind (see Detroit, Baltimore, Newark, Gary, Camden, Rochester, Birmingham, Memphis...)?

Could he have known that on July 20, 2014, 45 years after the initial moon landing, black people ($22 trillion later) would be protesting their right to be exempted from paying water bills in the former Arsenal of Democracy?

We have completely dismantled our civilization to uplift black people (while hordes of brown people scramble across our borders at the behest of the federal government), and they still don't think that's enough.

Apollo's Efforts Grounded: When NASA Turned to "Star Trek's" Lt. Uhura to Recruit the Next Generation of Non-White Astronauts

"The original NASA culture was also imbued with a certain degree of idealism. Professionalism in its classic form requires the bearer to perform a public service, whether it be a doctor curing the sick or an engineer speaking the truth. Two forms of idealism contributed to the NASA culture of the first generation. One was the notion of the space race as the "good war"; the other was the romance of flight. 

The airplane was barely twenty-five years old when the first generation of NASA employees was born. Most people traveled by bus or train, if they traveled at all. Flying in airplanes above the ground had a romantic quality that touched many NASA engineers while they were young."(Inside NASA: High Technology and Organizational Change in the U.S. Space Program, by Howard E. McCurdy, p. 83)

"NASA, along with the companies that performed contract work during Apollo, was a reflection of society's workforce in the late 1960s - mostly white, mostly male." (Apollo Missions: The Unsung Heroes, by Billy Watkins, p.79)
"Civil Rights advocates have been fond for years of pointing out the incongruity of a nation's being able to send men to the moon and bring them safely back again without being able to deal very effectively with its racial problems here on earth.

... NASA has compiled a dismal record with respect to female and minority employment. By now NASA should have learned that institutionalized sexism and racism give way to neither simple pieties nor eloquent declarations of principle. Achieving equitable employment opportunities for women and minorities in large American institutions requires skill, determination and sustained effort, just as a successful space program does. That is a lesson for the 1970s that all major American institutions must learn if the tragedies of the 1960s are to be avoided in this country's future." (Racism, Sexism, and Space Ventures, Washington Post, 11/24/1973)

"By the time Apollo 11 astronauts had landed on the Moon in 1969, a growing community of dissent had emerged, for whom America's space success belied a space agency  barely integrated by race and gender, even by 1960s standards. Particularly problematic for NASA in the early 1970s was the continued gender and racial exclusivity of its astronaut ranks: the Moon Race had been one, but NASA would still fly only white male pilots. Without the Moon Race to shield it, the ethnic and gender homogeneity of NASA's astronaut corps also suggested a dissonance between the goals of Apollo (its obsession with putting "Whitey on the Moon") and the needs of a nation increasingly inclined to view persistent social discrimination as the leading national concern. Even Star Trek's USS Enterprise had enjoyed a crew integrated by gender and ethnicity..." (Inventing the American Astronaut, by Matthew H. Hersch, p. 173)
Two white men successfully walked on a different world, 45 years ago tomorrow. Apollo 11 got them there.

Apollo 12, 14, 15, 16, and 17 would also successfully land on the moon.

Apollo 18 and 19 would be cancelled, too expensive in an age dominated by the urge for equality and an unprecedented allocation of resources to ensure it happened. 

And though the crew of the fictional Star Trek was integrated, the NASA that put 12 men on the moon from 1969 - 1972 was almost entirely white.
Nichelle Nichols, who played the original Lt. Uhura in Star Trek, became a minority recruiter for NASA in 1977...

Much to the chagrin of one of the fictional "astronauts" who spent years on the set of the USS Enterprise.

The black actress Nichelle Nichols, who played the part of Lt. Uhura on Star Trek.

In the pages of Forbes,  she would be quoted as saying her efforts were successful, because she,"improved NASA’s human mission with her single-handed effort to include more women and African-Americans in the space agency of the late 1970s that was dominated by White-male employees."

Nichols would give a speech in 1977, titled 'New Opportunities for the Humanisation of Space', where she voiced her concerns and criticism that been been leveled against the space program by the women and minorities whom she had met during her travels.

She would meet with NASA's Associate Administrator for Space Flight, John Yardley, and the black NASA Assistant Administrator for Equal Opportunity Programs, Dr. Harriet Jenkins, to discuss her speech  and why so few minorities were applying to be astronauts:
... she talked herself into becoming a recruitment contractor of minorities for NASA's Astronaut Corp. However, she informed those present that in accepting the assignment (contract) her credibility was at stake, and if she found suitably qualified women and minorities for the astronaut program who would subsequently not be selected, then she would 'personally file a class-action suit against NASA.' She was not going to be used to attract publicity and then have NASA say later that despite all its efforts it could find no qualified women or minorities. NASA concurred. (Women in Space, by David Shayler, p. 153)
So NASA was no longer an organization where merit was the necessary condition for employment or advancement; it was nothing more than the lack of genitalia or an abundance of melanin that would instantly qualify you for NASA employment and getting pushed to the front of astronaut training.... or else Lt. Uhura would file a class-action lawsuit...

And people still believe we didn't go to the moon, when an actress from a fictional show about a future racial Utopia would dictate to NASA just who could be an astronaut...

In an interview with Smithsonian Magazine, she'd elaborate her angst with NASA selecting just another "all-white male astronaut corps": 
Q: How did you become affiliated with NASA and in what capacity? 
A: Ten years after "Star Trek" was cancelled, almost to the day, I was invited to join the board of directors of the newly formed National Space Society. They flew me to Washington and I gave a speech called “New Opportunities for the Humanization of Space” or “Space, What’s in it for me?”  In [the speech], I’m going where no man or woman dares go. I took NASA on for not including women and I gave some history of the powerful women who had applied and, after five times applying, felt disenfranchised and backed off. [At that time] NASA was having their fifth or sixth recruitment and women and ethnic people [were] staying away in droves. I was asked to come to headquarters the next day and they wanted me to assist them in persuading women and people of ethnic backgrounds that NASA was serious [about recruiting them].  And I said you’ve got to be joking; I didn’t take them seriously. . . . John Yardley, who I knew from working on a previous project, was in the room and said  'Nichelle, we are serious.' I said OK. I will do this and I will bring you the most qualified people on the planet, as qualified as anyone you’ve ever had and I will bring them in droves. And if you do not pick a person of color, if you do not pick a woman, if it’s the same old, same old, all-white male astronaut corps, that you’ve done for the last five years, and I’m just another dupe, I will be your worst nightmare. 
Q: And what happened? 
A: They picked five women, they picked three African-American men, they picked an Asian and the space program has represented all of us ever since. That is my contribution and that is one of the things I am most proud of.
It should be noted that in 1976, NASA's Astronaut Selection Board had put out new guidelines for how to recruit future astronauts. This was before a fictional lieutenant from a television would threaten a lawsuit if black and women candidates weren't selected...:

Phase I
A. NASA determines final qualification requirements
B. Prepare recruiting information packets, which will include
    1. Description of Space Shuttle program
    2. Qualification requirements
         A. Pilots
         B. Mission specialists
    3. Description of selection process
    4. Application blank(s)
C. Meet with special interest groups, such as National Organization for Women, NAACP, and the League of United Latin American Citizens. 
    1. Explain qualification criteria rationale
    2. Enlist aid in publicizing recruitment effort and identification of candidates
    3. Provide information packets for distribution
D. Prepare press kits

Phase II
A. Announce recruitment program to the public
     1. Possible press conference; consider participation by special interest group representatives
     2. Distribute press kit
     3. Provide all NASA public speakers with information kit for use in every public appearance
     4. Place recruitment advertisements in appropriate publications.  (The Real Stuff: A History of   NASA's Astronaut Recruitment Program, By Joseph Atkinson, , p. 145-146)

During the 1960s and the buildup to the Apollo program, not one special interest had a say in anything NASA did.

We landed on the moon with Apollo 11, 12, 14, 15, 16 and 17 then.
A much different future should be reflected back in the visor of Neil Armstrong than the one we find ourselves in in 2014, but that is not for us to decide. We were born into this era and must remember we have the ability to change it

The post 1972 NASA gave us... meetings with the NAACP to dictate how NASA would select pilots for space travel.

NASA would then film a commercial with Lt. Uhura herself, Nichelle Nichols, dressed in blue overalls of an astronaut, delivering a recruitment pitch on national television. She read off of a teleprompter:
Oh, Hi. I'm Nichelle Nichols. It kind of looks like when I was Lieutenant Uhuru on the starship Enterprise , doesn't it. Well, now there's a twentieth century Enterprise, an actual space vehicle built by NASA and designed to put us in the business of space - not merely space exploration. NASA's Enterprise is a space shuttlecraft, built to make regularly scheduled runs into space and back. Now, the shuttle will be taking scientists and engineers, men and women of all races, into space - just like the astronauts crew on the starship Enterprise. That is why I'm speaking to the whole family of humankind - minorities and women included. If you qualify and would like to be an astronaut, now is the time! This your NASA! (The Real Stuff: A History of   NASA's Astronaut Recruitment Program, By Joseph Atkinson, , p. 63-64)
 After 1972, NASA became nothing more than glorified United States Postal Service, dedicated to the same principles that have guided to the NAACP since its founding: advancing the interests of non-white people while subverting the interests of whites.

We went to the moon.

July 20, 2014 should be a date we celebrate our genesis into the exploration of new celestial worlds; instead, it's just another date where we see those stars going increasingly out of focus, clouded with the uncertainty of a future where the advancement of minority interests have completely subverted our civilization.

So congrats Nichelle Nichols: you've ensured the future - for now - is nothing like that (thankfully) of the liberal world of Star Trek; instead, it looks like something out of 1968's Planet of the Apes.

Post-1972 NASA is nothing more than a social experiment; knowing we have to hitch a ride with the Russians to even get to space in 2014 should be sufficient information in showing how this experiment ended...

Space isn't the final frontier.

Race realism is the final frontier, an acceptance of this truth the way back to the stars.

If not, all roads point to Detroit.
