Race Realism

The Israeli politician, Abba Eban, once said, “Men and nations behave wisely when they have exhausted all other resources.” A form of this is attributed to Churchill, but there is no evidence he ever said it. References to the apocryphal Churchill quote started appearing in the 1980’s. Like Twain and Voltaire, Churchill gets credit for a lot of pithy sayings, simply because people believe he would have said them. Regardless of the origin, the assertion is true. Men go to great lengths to avoid the right answer or wise course.

We see this with race. Three generations ago , when social reformers and political leaders looked at the condition of the black man, they were presented with three possible explanations. One was biology, the reason most people accepted for the differences between blacks and whites. The other was some form of magic, like God blessed the white race or cursed the black race. Few people thought that was right. The other choice was culture. The laws and institutions of the nation were rigged against the black man.

It has long been understood by pollsters, marketing men and test designers that when given three options, people will look for the least likely of the three and eliminate that first, so the choice is a binary one. That’s what happened 60 years ago. Magic was eliminated as a possible choice, which left biology and culture. It is also well known that people will always choose the option they want to be true, over the one they wish were not true, despite a mountain of evidence in support of the latter. That’s the inspiration of that quote.

Three generations ago  our rulers decided that the reason blacks were so far behind whites was culture. They set about changing the laws, creating programs to address past sins, modifying institutions to accommodate blacks and lecturing whites about the sinfulness of racism. The last black to be the victim of Jim Crow, for example, is 75 years old this year. We are reaching the point where no living person was the victim of legal segregation. The majority of blacks now have never experienced real racism.

Blacks would contest that last line and they would have a point. The other day, there was a news story about a white not being properly worshipful of a black. It is these sorts of outrages that perpetuate racism in America. All kidding aside, no black under the age of 50 has had their race used as an impediment to their success. In fact, being black is now an enormous asset for a black person with anything on the ball. The demand for competent blacks far exceeds the supply and prices have responded accordingly.

Despite all this, the achievement gap between blacks and whites remains unchanged in measurable areas like education and household wealth. In some areas, like crime, illegitimacy and substance abuse, the gap has grown larger. The gap in SAT scores are higher than ever, despite attempts to alter the test to close the gap. For three generations, our betters have rearranged every aspect of American society in an effort to alter the realities of race in America. The results are more of the same.

The only rational conclusion is that culture is not the cause of the black – white gaps we see in American society. At the far right of the curve, sure, better social conditions for high IQ blacks have made an enormous difference. For the overwhelming majority of blacks, however, the culture war has been a battle among whites over how much money, in welfare benefits, will be transferred from the white middle-class to blacks. They are no more able to compete in American society than they were when this all started.

That brings us back to the original options. Between culture, biology and magic, our betters, and most Americans, were sure it had to be culture. Now that three generations of social engineering have disproved that argument, we’re left with biology and magic. Our betters, unwilling to accept the reality on the ground are now arguing that the real cause of the racial gap is magic. They don’t call it magic, but that’s what they mean when they chant phrases like “white privilege” and “unconscious bias.”

In fairness, our betters are not embracing oogily-boogily because they believe it. It’s that they cannot bring themselves to embrace biology. Everything about the prevailing orthodoxy depends on the blank slate being true. Even the slightest doubt will cause the whole thing to come crashing down. It’s why kooks like Cordelia Fine get awards for writing books that claim biology is a social construct created by a cabal of pale penis people to oppress women, if women existed, which they don’t.

All human societies need order, otherwise they look like the Mad Max hellscape of places like Somalia. Order requires authority and that comes when the people being ruled over accept the people and system that provides order. The king is not going to be king very long if no one accept his right to rule. Similarly, people will not tolerate a ruling class that is populated by madmen denying reality. This is, in effect, what brought down the Soviet Empire. Even the beneficiaries of the system could no longer pretend it made any sense.

That’s what is happening today. The reality of race is undermining the moral authority of the system. Everyday, more and more white people wake up from the dream of race denialism. It’s why, despite the lack of sane leaders and a coherent strategy, the alt-right thrives. Whatever their flaws, they are right about the reality of race, which gives them credibility in an age when the ruling class has none. Ironically, it is the weapon of race that gave birth to the current arrangements and it will be race that is its undoing.

I wonder if “susceptibility to guilt” isn’t a biological thing, too (the way the “Game” guys like Heartiste go on about “pathological altruism”). Yeah, I was dealt a better hand than most, brains-wise… and I have never, ever, felt the slightest shred of guilt about it, despite all the indoctrination and a conventionally liberal adolescence and young adulthood. In fact, I thank God for it every day. No more do I feel envy that Michael Jordan won the “jump shot” lottery, Brad Pitt won the “handsome” lottery, etc. Such is life…. or, at least, I thought so.

Noblesse Oblige: “the inferred responsibility of privileged people to act with generosity and nobility toward those less privileged.” In the late 90’s there was a scandal, art museum in New York opened an exhibit funded by the NDA which was a statue of the Virgin Mary with elephant shit smeared all over it. A lot of bad whites went all “blah blah blah my tax dollars waaaa.” Anyway, I’ve been using it as a useful metaphor as of late for the prog MO. Take Noblesse Oblige and smear elephant shit all over it. Then you have guilt.

Real wakeup won’t come until the shakeup. White normies need to finally come to terms with the fact that every generation after the boomers is worse off financially despite the appearance of material wealth through debt.

I was thinking this morning that in order for me to have the same situation as my boomer parents did,
(decent job, one income, mortgage, kids) I’d have to be pulling in over $100k minimum just to emulate the middle class in real terms of 45 years ago.

I love black people. I have a number of brothers and sisters in Christ that are black and I care about them deeply. But I always say to them and others, name a city, state or nation that is majority black that was not an absolute hell hole. That’s the way it is. I wish someone could prove me wrong but they can’t. The best I can get is ancient Ethiopia but that had a huge Jewish (white?) influence through Solomon.

I’m not surprised that things are looking up in Ethiopia. They had the closest thing to a civilization that Sub_Saharan Africa had pre-colonialization, and just getting rid of the insane Communist government that they had in the 1970’s nd 1980’s has got to have made a huge difference. But I’ve heard these “African country on the verge of huge breakthrough, just like South Korea” before – Tanzania, anyone? So I’m withholding judgement this time. Best of luck to them, anyway.

Agreed that race realism is, and should be, a foundational pillar of the dissident Right. I find it amusing that progressives and race hustlers now ridicule white normies for being “colorblind”, or claiming that they don’t see color. This attitude should be ridiculed, but let us understand where this attitude came from in the first place. The initial push of the Civil Rights movement was to convince whites NOT to look at race as an individuals defining characteristic. It was black leaders and their white handlers that repeatedly demanded whites become “colorblind”. I was raised in the 70’s and remember… Read more »

Not quite. It was and is culture, but a strange form. Blacks, that were coming toward parity with whites by 1960, found they could play the race card and become spoiled brats. Have a kid, get a check. Blame crime on discrimination. Blame the results of laziness on bigotry. You see the parallel thing happening with sexism – you don’t see women in high-paying “dirty” jobs. Does biology and race play a role? Undoubtedly. But character matters more, and that was much thinner in 1960, especially up north, but perhaps moreso in the south where the penalties were greatest.

“Blacks, that were coming toward parity with whites by 1960” To the best of my knowledge, Blacks never paced whites cohort for cohort. The slight-of-hand used by Sowell and the like compare the wealthy black cohorts with poor white cohorts which, certainly did come closer to parity in prior epochs. Unfortunately, being incrementally better than the worst of white society is still not good. Jim Crow didn’t come about after the Civil War as a punitive southern reprisal (they didn’t even control their own governments for generations hence). It came about in Northern cities when blacks arrived in large numbers.… Read more »

“Character is a function of biology.”
Depends on what definition of character you’re talking about.
“A characteristic, especially one that assists in the identification of a species.”
Okay.
“The moral qualities distinctive to an individual.”
No. Because children are naturally altruistic? No, they’re naturally little maniacs. Character is taught. Over and over again.

james wilson
Guest

The moral qualities distinctive to an individual are are indeed a function of biology and quite varied, as one’s own family constantly prove. When they are problematic special attention must be paid. Character must be stressed more to some than to others. We call a person without character a sociopath, but there are many degrees of that on the way down.

Morality is just a meaningless word without free will. “Catholic teaching on free will recognizes that God has given men and women the capacity to choose good or evil in their lives. The bishops at the Second Vatican Council declared that the human person, endowed with freedom, is ‘an outstanding manifestation of the divine image.’ (Gaudium et Spes, No. 17) As the parable of the Grand Inquisitor in Dostoevsky’s novel, The Brothers Karamazov, makes so beautifully clear, God did not want humanity to be mere automatons, but to have the dignity of freedom, even recognizing that with that freedom comes… Read more »

The realization of biology and racial awareness is a male thing. Most women are incapable of accepting that people are fundamentally different and not at all equal in every way. Women tend to look at people, in groups and individually, as equals and everyone gets a turn. Perhaps that is an outgrowth of the catty relationships females have with each other as they mature and the hormones kick in, and they want to get away from that. In any case, males are very hierarchical in their relationships. It is how work environments manage to function reasonably normally–workers take their orders… Read more »

The other was some form of magic, like God blessed the white race or cursed the black race.

I work with w/the Chinese, Koreans, Mexicans in my business. I don’t see this “good attitude” towards blacks or toward Africa or any other minorities. You should go into a manufacturing plant in Mexico, ask them how they like their Chinese bosses. They will pick a fellow AmerIndian, a Mestizo, a white man, but if given the choice, they sure won’t pick a China man to boss them. When I talk to these owners, there’s nothing but disgust and scorn for blacks and browns. They aren’t even that crazy about most white people, to be honest.

You wiffed on that. I said Chinese are everyone’s last choice of employer. Probably true of the Chinese for that matter.

One million Chinese are in Africa, millions more are coming. They don’t much like China either.

In life, you play the hand you are dealt. None of us got to choose our parents or our genetics. Blacks adapted to life in sub-Saharan Africa, and hence are endowed with physical advantages that enhanced survival in that environment. Caucasians adapted to life in the upper latitudes where seasonal extremes demanded innovation in order to survive long winters of food deprivation. These traits evolved over a period of at least 50,000 years and affirmative action is not going to change DNA in the short term.

Zman, the only hole in the biology V culture argument I can see that has any real weight is that all of the efforts by social engineers over the last 50+ years seem calculated to create a dysfunctional culture.

The problem with the social engineering cum poorly behaved Scots-Irish theory posited by Sowell is that Scots-Irish frontier populations settled down after the frontier era, despite staying in frontier locations. Poor rural Kentucky populations aren’t as violent as wealthy upper-middle class black populations in suburbs. Furthermore, the explosion of black disruption in the 1960s out of prior black virtue is itself a myth. Northern cities started Jim Crow when blacks arrived in large numbers.

Taking a naive stab at the relative weights of HBD vs. culture/nurture from the ‘twin studies literature’, that is, socio/psycho evaluation of human identical twins separated at birth, it looks to be about 2/3 biological/nature and 1/3 nurture/culture. That is, IIRC, genetically identical individuals raised in different milieus were similar in about 2/3 of psychological traits but not in the other 1/3.

This looks like a useful heuristic (rule of thumb) approximation of the relative influences.

Member

The social engineers who would rule us have awakened to the fact that self-disciplined, highly-intelligent and hard-working people of good morals have little need nor want of an ever-expanding leviathan of government. Their opposites, on the other hand – those people incapable of governing themselves let alone anyone else – present endless possibilities for the expansion of the state into every nook and cranny of our lives. That is the dynamic underlying the vast population replacement scheme now underway in the western world generally and in the USA specifically, as well as the attacks upon traditional men and manhood.

The madness and corruption of the Soviet Union could’ve kept going, but they were unable to feed themselves and they couldn’t sell enough oil to pay for food imports. The rest of it was what happened when they finally were forced to confront that reality.

Gorbi had this bright idea “Hey, let’s give them some freedom and autonomy and maybe we can get the economy active enough to feed ourselves” and instead it led to everyone wanting out and away from.

On a bright note, Russia is now a food exporter, something they never managed to be during their communist days.

Brezhnev, et al, would have never have fallen for such soft headed ideas or actually put them into practice. They might well have seemingly embraced them in abstract to draw the poison of reality.

Nobody treats different species of dogs the same, even though they’re all dogs. Nobody would mistake a pit bull for a golden retriever. Different species of dog, and people watch themselves around the pit bulls.

But noooooo, humans are all the same! And if you point out any differences in aptitude or temperament in the different human species – RACIST!!!!! rings out and a million fingers start to wag in your direction.

No. No. No. Whites are not going to simply wake up to “reality”. Because there is no one reality. Reality is what people perceive in their own minds. And most Americans’ minds have been filled with thousands, no MILLIONS, of false, fake & misleading emotions & images about race. When people are confronted with a new concept, or new situation they search inside their mind to search for similar experiences in the database of their personal experiences. If they do not have a personal experience that matches that new concept or situation, they then look for it in the database… Read more »

“Because there is no one reality. Reality is what people perceive in their own minds.” Don’t think so. Delusions and hallucinations would be reality if this were the case. You can perceive in your mind that you can walk off the edge of the Grand Canyon and still keep walking. The reality is you will stop walking and start falling. My personal definition of reality is the physical universe and the actual events that have occurred there following the rules of physics. I believe there are dimensions and frequencies different from ours that we have no way of perceiving, so… Read more »

Zman can speak for himself, but I don’t get the impression he’s telling everyone to sit tight and stay comfy. Part of breaking the spell is talking about this stuff with others of like mind. Talking about it with each other until we’re blue in the face, talking about it from every conceivable angle and playing with every type of possible solution. Zman, and many other dissident right bloggers, have been seeing their number of visitors growing, in some cases to a very large degree. The Left didn’t just act blindly. Action was preceded by years of talking and writing… Read more »

I’ll submit that it IS culture. But a new culture founded on dependence, entitlement and blame.

Throw in a failed education system that relies on soft sciences, administrative rule and ever increasing demands for a monetary solution to the self-imposed problem.

Several hundred men took to 15* NFL fields to open the 2017 season. So who does the National Football League Players Association honor as week 1 MVP?

That thing you see floating by carried on the wind is the NFLPA’s last little shred of credibility.

These are all the same arguments our Betters use to keep us in our place as dirt people, two heavily armed the surveillance and police state, to justify all of the force they use against us.

“They’re not as smart as us”.

“Look at how they behave”.

By making these arguments overtly you are in their minds justifying their control of you.

Be careful what you wish for.

Essential to improving oneself in any endeavor be it education, sports, salesmanship and on and on is humility. Most blacks in America don’t have it so they can never improve as a race. Individual blacks yes, but the whole no. So this will have no end. Children learn humility; they are not born with it. They learn to admit they were wrong and grow accordingly. So sad black leaders are a bunch of a$$holes. I am currently all out of give a f*cks about them too.

Very pointed argument. However the path to ‘race-realism’ vis-a-vis economic outcomes is strewn with powerful taboos. None of the conservative talking heads or politicians can brook the cultural explanation and stay in business/elected. On the other hand sports fans have obvious explanations for the physical prowess of blacks rooted in biology should they want to broach the subject.

How about we start calling for proportional racial representation in all sports? That all professional sports teams should be composed racially and by gender, according to how the general population is split out?

Make them play by the same (Alinskyite) rules. That might just drive home the stupidity.

Even the most utterly committed race realist in 1964 would be shocked at the lack of progress on almost literally any front for black Americans since.

Considering the outrageous deference extended to them since that time, it is almost scary.

ok, I don’t really disagree with what you say here, but I think you leave out a major factor…. money…greed…. capitalism… the money/capitalism factor is the prime mover….my theory is that multiculturalism, the bias of the upper class for nonwhites and against whites, is simply an outgrowth of america itself, what america was from the beginning… the child is the father of the man… an old saying meaning that we as people, as adults, we are simply continuations of what we were as children, we are a product of our experiences as children…and our innate characteristics from the beginning created… Read more »

Mass third world immigration was instigated by (((THEM))). The culture of critique was imported by (((THEM))). Globalism is essentially (((THEIR))) thing. If euro-whites had been left to manage their own affairs I believe the western world would be a very different place. Anti-white fever is an (((ALIEN))) infection.

the war is between the elites and the white working class….the elites have domesticated the professional/white-collar subculture via their influence on the educational curriculum…this domestication has created millions of self-loathing whites…many of whom only pretend to be self-loathing in order to fit in and get ahead in life…. almost all of the alt-right mistake the self-loathing whites for the enemy…these are only the collateral damage caused by the propaganda campaign of the elite…or alternatively they may be seen as weapons of the elite/big-business…. don’t mistake the weapons used by the real enemy as being the actual enemy….when someone hits me… Read more »

Most don’t know that the first settlements, the sponsored Virginia Companies, began with 70,000 white slaves, with an 80% mortality rate.

I concur that it has always been a class war.
Those using foreign troops forget that said troops are using them in return.

“The only rational conclusion is that culture is not the cause of the black – white gaps we see in American society.” Not agreeing with you here Zman. You’re defining culture here as white culture, specifically white racism towards blacks. There is also black culture though. Call the white racist component and the black culture subcultures under the broader American culture if you like; doesn’t matter. Point is that (IMO) urban black culture has in the past, and continues to in the present, play a major role in preventing blacks from (as you say) being “able to compete in American… Read more »

And yet another one who tells us to read the Bible, but neglects to take his own advice. I am a student of the Bible (one who has read it through many times) and I can assure you that no where does the scripture say “the Lord loves all equally”. But Jesus did say…”Ye do err, for ye know not the scriptures”. Do a word search for “hate” in the Bible and you’ll find out that there are many for whom God uses that term…Some of whom He said He hated BEFORE they were even born. Esau, for example, the… Read more »

All races/groups/sections of society that get complete cradle to grave welfare and other entitlements are chronically underachieving. There are plenty of smart Navajo kids that could go on to college and get great careers, but they do not push themselves, and find it hard to excel without constant support systems. Maybe ‘self-sedation’ could be a fourth category…

As I look at the pro or college basketball court, or the NFL playing field (which I shall watch no more), one would have to be daft not to recognize that there are biologic reasons for the extraordinary preponderance of Black athletes. Don’t give me jack about they practiced more and ran harder. On my best day I could not bench press one of them but one of those linemen could lift me overhead two dozen times. That is biology. Jews have accumulated 20% of Nobel prizes but make up .2% of the population. Biology. We European white guys are… Read more »
