I’m a race realist.
Jared Taylor is a race realist. A race realist is an intelligent, educated person who has studied the issue of race and concluded that, yes, there are heritable racial differences in the human species. We live in a world which weirdly denies a century of empirical evidence.
How did we come to live in a world where a truth that is so obvious has been made toxic and is repressed through antiquated taboos? We all know the taboo isn’t going to survive the 21st century. There is too much evidence coming out now through genome wide surveys that are going to shed too much light on human origins and dark parts of the human past
This is why it is so important for our society’s leaders (try not to laugh) to start drawing a fine distinction between race realism and racism. A race realist is someone like Jared Taylor who speaks Japanese and will not be surprised by the data. He will be vindicated by the data for two reasons. He is smart and educated. He is motivated by integrity and altruism.
The “racist” is someone who really is animated by hatred of other races. There is no sense of malevolence in Jared Taylor or James Watson though. I’m not a malevolent person either. This is just another truth that is as obvious to me as any other. It is a part of my mental universe like the idea that spring weather has finally arrived here in Alabama or that 2 + 2 = 4.
Hate and resentment is what clouds the issue. It is why our politicians look like idiots and zealots when they walk on eggshells around the subject and speak about it through the language of political correctness. More people are finding out every day though that the political establishment has been lying to them for over half a century now on the race issue though. There are people in the scientific world right now pleading with them to start preparing for a soft landing.
Andrew Yang is the soft lofting. I don’t “hate” Andrew Yang because he is Asian. I think he is another smart, educated person who has a lot of ideas I agree with. This is why you see [insert a bunch of labels thrown around by journos] responding to him so positively. It seems strange until you realize that these people are really race realists, not racists motivated by “hatred.” It’s just that the SPLC spent the last half century toxifying the issue as part of a direct marketing scam.
In the eyes of a SJW fanatic whose religion is political correctness, the founders of our country were all deeply immoral men who “hated” other races. Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence, probably reigns supreme among them in this respect. He was one of the pioneers of race realism while simultaneously being a man of the Enlightenment.
Jefferson wrote at length about abolition, White Nationalism, apocalyptic racial violence, the endurance of prejudice and resentment and lots of important issues:
“As to the mode of emancipation, I am satisfied that that must be a matter of compromise between the passions the prejudices, & the real difficulties which will each have their weight in that operation. perhaps the first chapter of this history, which has begun in St Domingo, & the next succeeding ones which will recount how all the whites were driven from all the other islands, may prepare our minds for a peaceable accomodation between justice, policy & necessity, & facilitate our furnish an answer to the difficult question Whither shall the coloured emigrants go? and the sooner we put some plan into under way, the greater hope there is that it may be permitted to proceed peaceably to it’s ultimate effect. but if something is not done, & soon done, we shall be the murderers of our own children/”
Thomas Jefferson was also a Galaxy Brain. He was a man of the 18th and 19th centuries. That’s why he sounds so much more intelligent and educated than the people who “represent” us today in Washington. The Senate now vomits up men like Ben Sasse, not John C. Calhoun or Daniel Webster. My personal theory is that 150 years of wage slavery has made our political leadership vastly dumber than it used to be.
This is why it is so essential that Yang is elected president. Yang is our only chance to give Americans the leisure time to cultivate their intellects and finally begin to reverse the decline on display since the Civil War.
