Uhhh... Don't we usually praise capitalism and the entrepreneurial spirit around here? Dude's making an honest living, rather than relying on foreign aid and other handouts. And if it's stupid but it works, it ain't stupid.

The dude does say that he believes "hard work is the only way forward". So the thing looks like a deformed razor scooter. Fucker spends his time productively and lives off the fruits of his own labor.

I think the dumb faggot who posted this thought all of us would be laughing. I looked at that bike and thought, that's ingenuity. Good for you!

Yeah, I do not think the folks mocking this ever actually tried to build something with their hands that wasn't pre-fab.

[–] Dereliction 0 points 17 points (+17|-0) ago 

Totally! Good on him for being a productive capitalist in his little square of reality. He just needs someone to teach him how to iterate on improvements to the process and end product to take things to the next level.

from the comment section:

For almost 150 years the United States has been conducting an interesting 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 Freedmans 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 peoples' 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 hand wringing 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.

Some thought that what W.E.B. DuBois called the Talented Tenth would lead the way for black people. A group of elite, educated blacks would knock down doors of opportunity and show the world what blacks were capable of. There is a Talented Tenth. They are the black Americans who have become entrepreneurs, lawyers, doctors and scientists. But ten percent is not enough. For the experiment to work, the ten percent has to be followed by a critical mass of people who can hold middle-class jobs and promote social stability. That is what is missing.

Through the years, too many black people continue to show an inability to function and prosper in a culture unsuited to them. Detroit is bankrupt, the south side of Chicago is a war zone, and the vast majority of black cities all over America are beset by degeneracy and violence. And blacks never take responsibility for their failures. Instead, they lash out in anger and resentment.

Across the generations and across the country, as we have seen in Detroit, Watts, Newark, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, and now Ferguson, rioting and looting are just one racial incident away. The white elite would tell us that this doesn't mean the experiment has failed. We just have to try harder. We need more money, more time, more understanding, more programs, and more opportunities.

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 its a problem of culture, as if culture creates peoples' 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 un-fixable 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 leaders 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.

You can't legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can't give to anybody anything that the government doesn't first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they don't have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

I agree

[–] Sw0rdofDamocles 0 points 18 points (+18|-0) ago 

It's definitely an interesting story. This guys father, instead of taking his hacking implements and stealing someone's car or truck, put in the time to examine a few motorbikes and make a wooden push scooter to fill a transportation need in his community. No importing. No foreign aid. This guy's clear proof that if we get bleeding hearts in our society to leave these people alone, they'll sort out their own problems just as well without us. The guys father makes giant push scooters, taught his son the trade, and is able to provide for his family.

[–] i_scream_trucks 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

the cars and bicycles that are in those videos would imply that it wasnt really a transportation need.

[–] 11893944 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Cars cost a fair bit of money, and you can't use a bicycle to haul all that cargo. If he is able to sell them in a country where money is scarce, it means there is a need.

[–] Sw0rdofDamocles 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

There's no argument, it's definitely primitive. However, it's clearly filling a need otherwise they wouldn't spend time making them. When it comes to media, I tend to look at the things not being pulled into the shot. The one thing I noticed was the lack of drawn carts in the street scenes part of the video. Zero beasts of burden through the whole thing. That's not something a western propaganda film crew or a third world government could plan ahead and keep out of the shot. Big red flag for a third world country that there's either a lot of cattle theft or a recent civil war.

If I would fault anyone it would be the narrator who coddles them like a mother watching her child peddle a bike for the first time.

[–] prairie 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

The narrator hasn't yet realized her condescension towards them. She's not ready for the truth.

[–] DeadBeatNigger 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

I'm glad I came on here and am seeing a lot of comments like this. This is what we need to be encouraging in order to get niggers off if American aid and cordoned off, working for themselves. Half the commenters in here are the same people who would have tortured niggers for fun during colonialism causing the black locals to have enough and start hacking up whites. Then they'd act all surprised and be like "why'd they slaughter everyone one Stanleyville? All we did was hack their family up for not doing an impossible amount of work in a deadly mineshaft." Don't get me wrong, I hate niggers and Africans as much as the next guy, but this guy is doing a fair days work for himself and his family.

Does making a shifty imitation of a cart really count as an invention?

Also the complete joke of watching cars drive by as they praise this lopsided, half-assed bicycle/cart.

[–] gazillions 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

The cars are things in the picture that don't belong.

And the buildings. And the roads. And the rubber sneakers. And the loom-woven textiles.

Pretty much anything that isn't rough-hewn plant fiber, stone, mud, dirt or an animal product, basically.

No..it's more like watching the first bit of 2001. I think they ran into a monolith at some point and achieved self-awareness. Soon they'll discover the world is round. This is fascinating stuff.

I'm not going to pretend to be impressed by a 2x4 with wheels on it. Especially when it took 3 days to build.
