Baltimore Sun Publishes “The Black Dilemma” Editorial – Incorrect Attribution!
Summary of eRumor:
Forwarded emails and blog posts have cited an editorial titled “The Black Dilemma” that supposedly appeared in the Baltimore Sun.
The Baltimore Sun didn’t publish “The Black Dilemma” editorial. And it wasn’t written by a man named Ian Duncan Smith, as was reported in October 2017.
The editorial was published in September 2014 by American Renaissance, a website that says it approaches “the problems of race” with “race realism.”
Anthony Bryan, described as an engineer and entrepreneur who lives in “Whitetopia,” wrote the editorial, which is actually called “Ten Percent is Not Enough.” The editorial begins with the line, “The black/white experiment has failed,” and it continues:
“For almost 150 years the United States has been conducting an experiment. The subjects of the experiment: black people and working-class whites. The hypothesis to be tested: Can a people taken from the jungles of Africa and forced into slavery be fully integrated as citizens in a majority white population?
The whites were descendants of Europeans who had created a majestic civilization. The former slaves had been tribal peoples with no written language and virtually no intellectual achievements. Acting on a policy that was not fair to either group, the government released newly freed black people into a white society that saw them as inferiors. America has struggled with racial discord ever since.
Decade after decade the problems persisted but the experimenters never gave up. They insisted that if they could find the right formula the experiment would work, and concocted program after program to get the result they wanted. They created the Freedman’s Bureau, passed civil rights laws, tried to build the Great Society, declared War on Poverty, ordered race preferences, built housing projects, and tried midnight basketball. Their new laws intruded into people’s lives in ways that would have been otherwise unthinkable. They called in National Guard troops to enforce school integration. They outlawed freedom of association. Over the protests of parents, they put white children on buses and sent them to black schools and vice versa. They tried with money, special programs, relaxed standards, and endless handwringing to close the ‘achievement gap.’ To keep white backlash in check they began punishing public and even private statements on race. They hung up Orwellian public banners that commanded whites to ‘Celebrate Diversity!’ and ‘Say No To Racism.’ Nothing was off limits if it might salvage the experiment.
In June 2015, the editorial began to circulate via forwarded emails and online forums under the new headline, “The Black Dilemma.” The new version of the editorial was incorrectly attributed to the Baltimore Sun.

But nothing changes no matter how much money is spent, no matter how many laws are passed, no matter how many black geniuses are portrayed on TV, and no matter who is president. Some argue it’s a problem of culture, as if culture creates people’s behavior instead of the other way around. Others blame white privilege. But since 1965, when the elites opened Americas doors to the Third World, immigrants from Asia and India, people who are not white, not rich, and not connected, have quietly succeeded. While the children of these people are winning spelling bees and getting top scores on the SAT, black youths are committing half the country’s violent crime, which includes viciously punching random white people on the street for the thrill of it that has nothing to do with poverty.
The experiment has failed. Not because of white culture, or white privilege, or white racism. The fundamental problem is that American black culture has evolved into an unfixable and crime ridden mess. They do not want to change their culture or society, and expect others to tolerate their violence and amoral behavior. They have become socially incompatible with other races by their own design, not because of the racism of others – but by their own hatred of non-blacks. Our rulers don’t seem to understand just how tired their white subjects are with this experiment. They don’t understand that white people aren’t out to get black people; they are just exhausted with them. They are exhausted by the social pathologies, the violence, the endless complaints, and the blind racial solidarity, the bottomless pit of grievances, the excuses, and the reflexive animosity. The elites explain everything with racism, and refuse to believe that white frustration could soon reach the boiling point.”—
