Controlling the framing of a debate

Jared Taylor on the radio

The radio host asks Jared Taylor what a race realist is, here’s his response:

Oh, it’s someone who’s not befuddled by the current myths about race being some sort of optical illusion . . . that it’s a genuine phenomenon that we have to take into consideration when we analyze society.

This a very well structured verbal formulation. A race realist is someone who’s not “befuddled by the current myths.” The opposite view believes that “race is some sort of optical illusion.” Those people are confused and befuddled by an illusion. Jared’s side sees a genuine phenomenon that must be taken into consideration to analyze society.

The anti, a defense lawyer, is forced to admit that blacks are “disproportionately” involved in violent crime, but still argues (weakly) against racial profiling.

Jared Taylor dismisses “the reasons” for crime, but says, “We have very good data.” That’s a very good formulation to use, and he goes into the Color of Crime fact pattern.

The lawyer whines that “goes down the road of racism.” LOL.

Jared says, “It’s race that makes people particularly nervous.” The lawyer blurts out a non-sequitur, “I’m not nervous, I’m a lawyer.” Kind of like “he’s not heavy, he’s my brother!”

Jared says men commit on average more than women, and accept greater scrutiny since they are men. Blacks are more likely to commit crimes than whites, as men than women, also, younger men, are more likely to commit a crime than older men, and the police have to profile to do their jobs efficiently. Jared keeps it on the level of practicality and the policeman’s perspective. He says racial profiling is potentially abuse, but so is a gun! Of course!

This is how to argue. If you are a polemicist, listen to this and other Taylor debates, transcribe it, memorize it.


  1. Jared Taylor is a master of working within the mainstream discourse. He can always win an honest debate because the facts are on his side.

  2. “Scientific societies are as yet in their infancy. . . . It is to be expected that advances in physiology and psychology will give governments much more control over individual mentality than they now have even in totalitarian countries. Fichte laid it down that education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished.”

    “Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible.”

    “Gradually, by selective breeding, the congenital differences between rulers and ruled will increase until they become almost different species. A revolt of the plebs would become as unthinkable as an organized insurrection of sheep against the practice of eating mutton.”
