Interracial sexual preferences

Just a few excerpts below from a large analysis of data from a dating site -- looking at preferences for interracial partnership and marriage. I have often observed the way small young East Asian ladies -- mostly Han Chinese -- go for tall Caucasian men in Australia.  They seem to go all-out to get themselves a tall white guy.  And they often succeed. You see a lot of young Asian women on the arm of tall white men in my town. So it interested me to see the same thing in the American data below

50% of women expressed interest in only one ethnicity. Like their male counterparts, Jewish women had the highest  single-ethnic preference percentage at 74%. So who did these ladies want?

Among women who only wanted one ethnicity, 100% of White women only wanted White men. Most Asian women only wanted Asian men, however, a full 34% of them (and 16% of South Asian women) also only wanted White men.   Looks like it’s good to be a white man…still.

Judging by what CMB members told us about their Bagel preferences, Jewish men liking Asian women seems to be an unfounded myth. Put that one up there with having an orgasm if you sneeze seven times. However, it does look like there’s a bit of a trend in the reverse: Asian women are fiends for White men, including Jewish men.

Philosophy of Race versus Population Genetics: Round 3 An online discussion paper

Abstract

For the last thirty years at least social constructionist and biologically realist views of human races have been presented as mutually exclusive alternatives. Surprisingly, this debate has its recent origins in work on blood group population genetics. A finding that the greater part of human genetic variation lies within populations rather than between races has led some to hold that this denies the reality of geographically limited biological clusters.

An extension of this view maintains that even those few differences that do exist are distributed in clinal fashion along ancient human migration routes and thus precludes reliable delineation of racial clusters.

In the account presented here I argue that the vast bulk of genetic data now available adequately demonstrates that biological races do exist.

I go on to point out that the analytical methods used to reconstruct the history of these human clusters are themselves, in part, social constructs. Therefore, these two contrasting philosophical viewpoints may be seen as capable of working together.

I conclude by stressing the importance of this debate as regards the collection of reliable census information, the formation of equitable social policies and better informed medical decisions, particularly those involving the prescription of pharmaceuticals.

Treating Kanye like an Uncle Tom

The reaction to his pro-Trump remarks has been deeply condescending

Even stranger than the sight of Kanye West cosying up to Donald Trump on Twitter, and having his pro-Trump tweets deemed ‘very cool’ by POTUS, has been the excessive outrage that greeted it. And which now greets any pop star who deviates from the narrow political mindset of the cultural establishment. Where once pop figures embodied rebellion, otherness and individuality, today they are expected to conform.

After an extended hiatus away from social media, West has been constantly tweeting for the past week-and-a-half. At first he shared inane inspirational aphorisms and pictures of his shoes. Then he raised some eyebrows by stating: ‘I love the way Candace Owens thinks.’ Owens is the controversial black conservative known for being pro-Trump and scathingly anti-Black Lives Matter. Note that he said he likes the way she thinks, rather than what she thinks.

When he was then quoted by a radio personality as saying that he loves Trump, he shared a picture of himself wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat and calling Trump his ‘brother’, even though, he pointed out, he doesn’t agree with everything Trump does. This all echoes one of his trademark rants, at a concert in 2016, where he claimed that he didn’t vote in the election but if he had he would have voted for Trump. ‘That don’t mean that I don’t think that Black Lives Matter. That don’t mean I don’t think that I’m a believer in women’s rights. That don’t mean I don’t believe in gay marriage’, he said. His pro-Trump remarks came in spite of the fact that he had given thousands of dollars to Hillary Clinton’s election campaign.

In any case, the response to West’s recent comments has been swift and predictable. Even though it seems he appreciates Trump for his personality rather than his policies, the Washington Post nonetheless declared him an ‘alt-right darling’ who has found a ‘sense of purpose’ in the far right. Rolling Stone called his vague comments ‘a real threat’. He has gone ‘full-on alt-right’, it said, and is aligning himself with the Charlottesville white supremacists. Insultingly, some claim his rumoured mental-health problems are the only rational explanation for his appreciation of Trump.

Alongside all this inevitable outrage, delighted conservatives and online culture warriors, hardly known for their interest in rap music, took West’s rambling statements as a pledge of allegiance to their battle with the thoughtpolice. Alex Jones invited West to appear on InfoWars, which of course was held up as further proof that West is alt-right – guilt by association.

Many of the critics of Kanye have been deeply patronising. They’ve denied his agency, claiming he is being used by privileged white politicians. White journalists suggest that this Uncle Tom couldn’t possibly understand the plight of black America like they do, because he’s a rich celebrity ‘cloistered in a world of wealth, away from the realities of racism’. Of course, if you’re a multi-gazillionaire superstar who adheres to the correct ideology – like Jay-Z or Beyoncé – no one will question you for being detached from the average African-American.

What this all reveals is how obsessed political commentators are with the ramblings of entertainers. Just last month, Candace Owens made a video for PragerU entitled, ‘Dear Celebrities: No One Cares What You Think’. She talked about the insignificance of celebrities’ political opinions. And yet after a single shout-out from Kanye, she tweeted: ‘Please take a meeting with me. I tell every single person that everything that I have been inspired to do was written in your music. I am my own biggest fan, because you made it okay. I need you to help wake up the black community.’

It is deeply condescending to say an entire community needs to be ‘woken up’, and even worse to say that the best way to do this is through celebrity endorsement. People are perfectly capable of considering policies without the aid of some rapper’s tweets. After all, it was Trump who got elected even though it was Hillary who had the squadron of celebrity campaigners.

This hysteria over Kanye West’s comments doesn’t only point to the sorry state of politics – it also shows how pathetic pop culture in general has become. Being outrageous and provocative used to be part of the job description. Now, people in pop, rock and hip-hop are no longer expected to challenge conventional wisdom, but rather to align with the chattering classes they once despised.

Inside Australia's growing neo-Nazi youth movement

Leftist anti-white discrimination has bred its reply

Around the nation a secretive group of white supremacists who salute Hitler and call for a white revolution are plastering hate speech across cities and universities.

The Antipodean Resistance are a group of radicalised neo-Nazis who describe themselves as 'the Hitlers you've been waiting for'.

To join the men's chapter, you have to be white, straight, young, monogamous and only interested in dating other white people. 'Racial treason is not tolerated,' members told Daily Mail Australia.

The group, which began in Melbourne in 2016, is spreading to cities and towns across the country.  They recently opened a women's chapter to give women 'a  choice to live their lives in accordance to their natural roles'.

Over email an anonymous representative for the group told Daily Mail Australia that their 'activists come from all walks of life'. 'Our ranks are made up by men and women from every corner of the workforce. Our members have families. Some have wives and children that they seek to protect,' they said.  

'We are telling you that we are all around you. We build your houses, we cook your meals, and we keep your shelves stocked.'

The groups main targets are Jewish people, homosexuals and non-white immigrants. 'We oppose substance abuse, homosexuality, and all other rotten, irresponsible distractions laid before us by Jews and globalist elites.' 

They accuse homosexuals of being 'defined by their own hedonism, and by virtue of their own perversions deprived of the natural capacity to reproduce'.

They also refer to Jewish people as 'social parasites'.

'We recognise that there is a fundamental truth to all of reality and that reality is governed by this natural law, whether human beings acknowledge it or not,' the representative says.

The group, which claims to have 300 members, first emerged in 2016 when they put up posters in Melbourne showing the shooting of a gay man, and the text 'Get the Sodomite filth off our streets'.

Since then they've carried out over 40 'hits' as they call them, with their propaganda appearing across the country. Usually conducted in the dead of night they'll plaster streets and universities with hate speech. 'Stop the hordes,  N*****s, Ch***s, Dunec***s,' one poster reads. Others call for the murder of Jewish people.

Last year they put up flyers at Melbourne university which were written in simplified Chinese characters. They said Chinese people were not allowed into the building, otherwise they would be deported.

Posters bearing the name of a notorious neo-Nazi group which claim to be 'the Hitlers you've been waiting for' were plastered over the walls of Sydney University in 2017

'The policy of anonymity within the organisation is a pragmatic choice, as it is the most effective way to establish a political movement in the current climate,' their representative says.

'We also have no need to stroke our egos by putting our identities out on record for the world to see. We stand by our principles regardless of whether our identity is known or unknown.' 

Not much is known about the group but researchers and left activists have been monitoring their actions.

Julie Nathan, a researcher at the Executive Council of Australian Jewry, has been investigating the group since they first emerged.

'The typical profile of a member is male, of white European background, aged from late teens to late twenties,' she tells Daily Mail Australia. 'Members are secretive about their identities, concealing both names and face'

'Some of them are stereotypical Hitler-saluting neo-Nazi thick-heads. But a small number of them appear to be tertiary-educated and the dominant figures.'

The neo-Nazi's have also been monitored by ASIO, out of fear the extremist group could turn violent. 

'Members of these groups are diverse and have different agendas, including extreme right-wing and extreme left-wing ideologies,' ASIO said to a parliamentary review into the expenditure of security agencies.

'A few small subsets of these groups are willing to use violence to further their own interests.'

When asked if the group was was willing to use violence the group denied it.  

'Antipodean Resistance does not believe that violence is the correct path to achieving victory,' they said.

But authorities aren't convinced. Ms Nathan says her research has shown the group has a connection to overseas terrorists organisations.

'Antipodean Resistance was one of several neo-Nazi groups which were incubated via the Iron March website (a notorious far right website shut down in 2017). The groups have maintained contact with each other.'

She says they are inspired by National Action in the UK, a white supremacists group, which was listed as a terrorist organisation in December 2016.

The group denied any affiliation with terrorists. They say their fight is about creating a society based on 'natural law.'

'When we preach our ideal future, we speak not of some Utopian post-scarcity society. We strive for something far purer, and far more realistic.'

'We strive not for an equal society, but for a one that exists in harmony with natural law, rather than in conflict.'

Ms Nathan says their end game is total domination and their membership is growing. 'The group has been able to distribute its hate propaganda across cities and towns across Australia, and organise martial arts training in remote regional areas,' she said.

'The group’s leaders have no illusions about AR becoming a popular mass-based organisation. Their dream is to impose their own Nazi dictatorship on Australia.

'Even a small group of brainwashed fanatics who co-ordinate their actions and have no moral compass whatsoever can cause immense harm.'

*************************

Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the  incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.
