VIDEO: D'Souza Says Racism Is Not The Cause Of Black Failure

In this January 1996 interview, D’Souza explains that racism is not the main problem facing blacks in the U.S.—their own dysfunctional culture is.

D’Souza’s book, The End of Racism, summons profound historical, moral, and practical arguments against the civil rights orthodoxy which holds that “race matters” and that therefore we have no choice but to institutionalize race as the basis for identity and public policy.

Watch here:


Available for pre-order now, Dinesh D’Souza’s new book United States of Socialism reveals modern-day socialism as a “identity socialism.” Who is behind it, why is it evil, and how can we stop it?

    Mr. D’Souza, I thank God for you and what you are doing for our country to get the truth out that Obama and the liberals are destroying America from within. You probably already know that there are nuclear weapons and
    underground ICBMs with nuclear warheads that were put in the Ukraine during the cold war and Putin wants control of them.
    As for the racism, in Knoxville, Tn. a white teenage couple (Shannon Christian and Chris Newsome)were out on a date when they were attacked by three black men and one black woman. They were tortured in ways that chills to the bone (some were so evil that they were never made known), then they murdered them. They cut the boy’s genitals off and stuffed them in his mouth. They put bottles in the girl’s vagina and jumped on her to see how far they would shoot out. They were found guilty in the first trial but due to the judge having bought illegal drugs from someone during that time, the families had to go through a second trial. They were found guilty again. The story made the local news but NOT ONE of the major news networks covered it (not even Fox which we always watch). I tried to send the story to Hannity, Kelly File, and Huckabee but since I’m not too good on a computer, I could not get it to them. My point is that if the couple had been black and these monsters had been white, Knoxville, Tn. would have been swarmed with the media. Obama, Holder, Black Panthers, Al Sharpton, ACLU, and the professional protesters/looters/riot leaders and the others would have destroyed towns nationwide and marshall law would have been declared. You will probably never read this, but I hope you do.
    I grew up in the 50’s and 60’s, civil rights turmoil, Vietnam (when my husband and other Veterans were spit on, called baby killers and treated like trash) and domestic terrorists like Bill Ayers.
    Thank you so very much for loving our USA!!!

    So after listening to this conversation, it is clear that this man has no real experience in racism. He has not obviously had to deal with the residual effect of what this country doesn’t have the ability to talk about. Slavery. This is not an excuse but a fact. Slavery was institutionalized by the government. And the government will not confront this issue still to this day. It is the elephant in the room.With a black american president this is what we are still dealing with. If anything now is the time to be having this conversation. The mistreatment of black americans was started from and by the government. Before any of you get your panties in a bunch from reading that statement, consider this. “The Culture” of what black americans should and can be was defined by the government.What can we the people do to change a government that no longer believes in a government for the people by the people? Yes the government needs to start a conversation on race in this country, but it has to clean up their own mess first. In the south there are still confederate flags being flown on government properties. Our leaders can not and should not stand for that. That in itself is treasonous.

    Karl Vancel Karl, this man immigrated here from one of the most racist countries in the world…so may want to re-think what you are saying here, coming from a man that has traveled the world, literally has been there and done that. this man absolutely knows what he is talking about. Even South Africans coming here see what this man sees, and they’ve looked upon their distant relatives in shame, because they do not represent any part of africa in the word africa american. They have choice words for their distant relatives, which put me besides myself. I have seen some young men and women in this country that happen to be black that have excelled into the middle class…on the other hand I see no other issues with no other races in our country that can be attributed to anyone but the black community itself otherwise racism would be rampant on all levels of differences among all races not just the black race.

    @ Douglas I agree with Karl, what others fail to realize is that we’ve paved the way for those who came over after we had done the work. Now, they are looking at the situation from the time they arrive in the 80s after a lot of people have been killed, lynched, woman rape and houses bomb and saying what is their problem. All other races that have come over here have received the benefit from the price that Blacks paid with their blood, sweet and death. There has never been a race of people treated worse than the Indian and Blacks in this country. Civil rights were just put into place in 1965. How you expect someone who haven’t had privilege like the privileged for over 400 years to now be equal and say ok, why haven’t you people come up to par with us. Hell if I had over 400 years head start we would not be having this conversation. This is why I don’t feel sorry for whites folks on the side of the road with a sign. I say to myself hell he had a 400 year head start….

    The Government experimented on blacks and other minorities with disease for years, like the Tuskegee institute experiment, which ended in 1975, Ebola etc.. It’s funny how this guy and others try to put us into a box, as if it’s all blacks who are doing badly. What about these privileged folks in trailer parks, go to West Virginia, South Carolina and the South. Douglas I have heard some African say this country is not for the black man, that we need to go back to the mother land where we would be treated better. I have had a white man to tell me, if he was black he would live somewhere else other than the USA with its racist views. Facts, Whites killed the Indian off and brought slaves over to build this country.

    I could very well say that all white folks are murdered. Look at all of the wars they have started dropping bombs and killing innocent people. I mean Timothy McVay killed over 300 people children included, so all white folks are terrorist. I mean if we going to group people based on a few, let start with white folks like KKK, Nazi, Skin heads, just to name a few. I mean you have been terrorist for over three century. Manifest Destiny is your motivational creed.

    If you listen to white folks they will tell you, oh its just a few of them like that but all of black folks are trouble makers, thugs and living off of the Government. Douglas did you not know that welfare was started in the 1930s for white woman’s only during the depression. Black was not allowed because agricultural labors and domestic workers were excluded. Blacks have been targeted every sense slavery happen over here in these United States. So the issues D’Souza and others try to raise are baseless at best.

    I would also like to add who own the airplanes, ships that bring the drugs into this country, its white folks. Who are the banks that laundry the money from drugs, its white folks. Who have all of these Methamphetamine Lab that make drugs it’s the white folks and their drug dealing kids. Who are the ones caught with the sales of prescription drugs, it’s the white folks. So I say we should start with the problem which are some Privileged folks first and work from there…(Manifest Destiny).

    slavery? The Irish and Australians were slaves in america before africans, using slavery as the reason for failures today helps nothing.Poor whites were treated like animals prior to the african slaves trade. Read about cromwell and the irish slave trade if anyone wants to learn, white cargo is also a great book..If slavery was the cause for failure today then surely years ago divorce rates and kids born without a father would have been way higher in number. However its way higher today than ever before, even higher than before welfare even started. Handouts and broken homes are the causes for failures today. dependent on handouts which is given to secure lifetime voters is the real issue.People from all over the world come here from terrible histories yet they strive for success and can reach it. This is not to downplay slavery but using it as a crutch does nothing, the turks wiped out a million armenians yet armenians thrive today, we know what the germans did to the jews, how are the jews today? Racism is and always will be a part of life for all people, its more cultural bias in many cases in america , but again it shouldn’t stop anyone, not today.

    Dinesh, I believe everything you say but we are losing ground. The recent attacks on police. Additionally I think we are losing our brightest young people to the Liberal narrative. I have a son who will graduate from UChicagoLaw in 2015 who believes “white privilege” simply because a black classmate and friend was treated as the honorable person needing a cab ride. He and his friends also don’t believe in “boot strapping” it as is their verbiage for how most baby boomers have lived their lives. Alrighty then. You are so right on with your analysis of the problems what do you think the solution(s) are? Have you considered your own personal feelings for President Obama in your solutions? Many, if not most Conservatives I listen to are very angry, rightly so, but not the best place to make decisions from. The Liberals are playing Bridge or Chess, we can’t simply be trying to hit President Obama while playing a game of Dodge Ball. Once again, I think you are brilliant. I appreciate your work and I understand why they see you as such a threat.

    I am so sick of the whining about something that happened 300 years ago. It has NOTHING to do with whether they can make it today or not. If they don’t and decide to become just another thug, that is THEIR CHOICE. Slavery ended 150 years ago and to blame their failures on that issue is just being lazy and worthless. If they behaved for their African Chiefs the way they behave here, it’s no wonder he sold them all off. This is not to excuse anyone buying a slave, but seems they haven’t progressed far beyond 1700!!!!
