“Skin Color Doesn’t Matter”: Or the Truth About the World’s Most Dishonest Straw Man

One of the most ingrained and misleading straw man arguments which exists in the immigration debate is that of “skin color”. The skin color straw man has been used systematically by the media to distort the standpoints of nationalists and has established itself as a core tenet of leftist mythology. The lie has been repeated time and time again in popular culture and politics in order to portray race as only a question of superficiality.

First off though, we need to understand what a straw man is. And the answer is that a straw man is a distorted version of your opponent’s standpoint. Thus, straw man argumentation means arguing against a distorted version of your opponent’s standpoint, instead of their real one. It can look a little something like this:

A: We should limit immigration. We’ve had too much immigration in too short time.

B: We can’t close our borders to the outside world.

“Skin color doesn’t matter” say multiculturalists when nationalists say it’s a bad idea to get replaced by foreign peoples. And the truth is that skin color isn’t especially important. It’s just that nationalism isn’t about skin color. Nationalism is about life.

Skin color, and looks generally, is just a marker of origin: phenotype is a marker of genotype. A term like “white” doesn’t mean light skinned, but European, just like “black” doesn’t mean dark skinned, but of sub-Saharan African origin. The skin color straw man is simply the equivalent of reducing class to just a question of paper. But perhaps we should begin scolding democratic socialists for “dividing people on the basis of paper” too if they want to protect the working class and reduce income differences.

The reason for terms such as “white”, “black” or “yellow” is that skin color is a conspicuous, easily identifiable trait which often differs much between and less within human populations. But just like it isn’t looks which make your family your family and your relatives your relatives, it isn’t looks which make Europeans who we are. In fact, it’s just as natural and moral to stand up for ourselves as Europeans, as it is standing up for the interests and survival of your own family. Because they’re both based in one and the same principle: protecting your genetic interest.

Multiculturalists are like people who stand by the shore and watch, shrug their shoulders and say “Who cares about skin color?” when their child is drowning. At least that is tantamount to willingly accepting the destruction of your own race. The falsehood of the skin color straw man is that it reduces the utmost purpose of life, genetic survival, to just a question of superficiality. It doesn’t get more dishonest than that. Through it, the media has managed to convince millions of Europeans that the destruction of everything our ancestors fought and died for only means a change of hue.

You should take a moment to consider that fact. You should take a moment to consider the complete brainwashing it takes to make a people believe its own survival is just a question of superficiality, and protecting its own interests just a question of immorality. And you should remember that history has proven, with the right amount of brainwashing, you can literally make people believe almost any kind of shit if it gives them higher status to do so. And when the most powerful institution in the world, the media, ends up in the hands of the worst enemies of the white race, you should no longer be surprised.

We have to understand that replacement by foreign peoples isn’t bad for survival because the looks of the population changes, but because a lower part of our genes will exist in future generations. That’s what survival is about, and that’s why nationalists oppose mass immigration and race mixing: because it damages our genetic interest as Europeans. We realize it’s better to contribute to the life of your race, than its death. And we understand that survival is the utmost purpose of life, which is why it deserves to be at the root of politics.

So let it be made clear once and for all:

Nationalism is about life. You are a nationalist because you want to live.

It’s not about skin color. It’s about our survival as Europeans, and about upholding life as the highest good.

And that fact remains just as true, no matter how many times the media repeat their goddamn lies.

At root you have a philosophic question, which is obliquely stated in this article. “it reduces the utmost purpose of life, genetic survival, to just a question of superficiality” I would guess that vanishingly few Americans, of any race, would put “genetic survival” as the “utmost purpose of life”. That’s a radical Darwinian reductionist view, not at all widely held. The traditionalist view of the purpose of life is that it is to allow man to bring himself into harmony with the divine, to “learn lessons” in this world and successfully transition to the afterlife. The specifics vary, but the… Read more »

Skin color appears to be determined mostly by the equator. The races that evolved closer to the equator have darker skin, while those who evolved closer to the poles have whiter skin. Hence why northern aborignals are lighter skinned than southern aboriginals. Same race however. Race is not determined by the equator or how much sunlight one gets. A Caucasoid cannot become a Negroid simply by living in Sub Saharan Africa.

I think it should have a bigger purpose than that: community.

As usual, these anti-whites can’t even get their own talking points right. “Racism” isn’t about skin color – “colorism” is about skin color, which is why the laws refer to both “race” and “color.”

Free Will vs Free Swill. Unfettered Liberty favors Free Swill over Free Will. Will implies control, restraint, vision, focus, direction, design, and destiny. Something greater than impulsive want of instant gratification so common among children, boors, and animals. Will is about challenging gravity and climbing a mountain. That requires will, stamina, commitment. Human nature is programmed to prefer Swill. Ease, comfort, fun, pleasure. Human nature prefers the slide than the climb. The slide requires no will and flows with swill. Gravitational pull of human nature favors the swill. It takes no effort to go down a slide. It takes effort… Read more »

Skin colour is important,it is a reflection of genetic inheritance,character, culture.If we were ‘all the same’ we would have produced similar cultures,history etc.European culture is a product of Europeans,African culture of Africans,Chinese of Chinese etc
Distinct races produce distinct cultures.It is only the malevolent globalists who wish for coffee coloured miscegenated chaos.

Races obviously differ by more than skin color. If they didn’t, subcontinental Indians and Negroes would look “the same”, as would East Asians and Latinos. The falsehood of the skin color straw man is that it reduces the utmost purpose of life, genetic survival, to just a question of superficiality. I’m not convinced that genetic survival, per se, is really all that important to people. If it were so important, I have to wonder why it has been so easy for so many people to completely neglect it. If they are simply unaware of the long-term implications then pointing those… Read more »

I think it is a pretty convoluted way of thinking to give microscopic strands of coded proteins within the body primacy. A completely backwards way of understanding reality. We are what we are, most directly at the perceptual/experiential level. “Beingness” is a holistic affair. And being motivated by ties of blood, family, love, duty, loyalty and the like is far more powerful than some abstract notion of ensuring that your proteins are replicated.

I’ve never been interested in genes. All those flashy “principal component analysis” plots leave me stumped. To this day I don’t really understand what a gene is, beyond a vague notion that it’s some kind of unit of inheritance. But as I said, I believe genes-talk has its uses.

Still, we shouldn’t cease exploiting the scientific cachet of “genes.”

In some ultimate sense, even I’d agree that it comes down to genes. I just prefer to utilize genes as a kind of racial “accounting method” rather sacralizing them as the be all and end all of human existence.

White Nationalists overlook a fairly obvious fact. Upper class whites, especially Nordics and Anglo-Saxons, don’t like whites from the lower portion of Europe and they really don’t like the Slavs to the East. It’s 2017 and I can tell you there are very few Germans, etc at my country club. And there are very few at the schools our kids went to. Todays White Nationalists are almost always from countries other than the Nordic and Anglo-Saxon ones. What we have today are the lower class and more backward whites trying to lift themselves socially by claiming to be white, just… Read more »

The (((typical bullshit))) one expects from your kind. It’s certainly true that nordicists predominate in the ranks of people calling themselves WNs and that they very often do indeed express disdain towards southern and eastern Europeans, but you ludicrously exaggerate the degree and extent to which this occurs.

More importantly, these attitudes, such as they are, are not really relevant to the question of racial interests. Even if eastern and southern Europeans are excluded from the nordic circle, they continue to have racial interests nonetheless, and would be no less justified in pursuing them.

I’m OK with a nationalism limited to Nordics and Anglo-Saxons. As for exxaggerating hatred towards the Slavs, etc, you just haven’t met many of us and none of us has ever trusted you enough to share.

Is skin color important? Yes, for many reasons, not the least of which is the importance for our survival from existential dangers to our continued existence as White people. The first rule of nature is: Survive. To do this, nature has equipped all organisms with ways to know danger and it usually gives each organism one King of the Senses to quickly know danger. In humans, the King of our Senses is sight. We can know this because it is linked to our sex drive and the concept of survival means more than self-preservation, it also means group preservation.

Latin for ‘similar’ is similis. Latin for ‘different’ is alium. Britain was a nation of similigration or simmigration. New peoples arrived but they were of same race. As such, they could easily blend into the native Britons and become part of Britannia. What is happening now is aliumigration, and these people stick out from the natives. They don’t blend in and become invisible. They stand apart so visibly. And in cases where whites and non-whites mix, they stand apart from whites and non-whites. Who/whom matters in immigration. Similigration blends with native population. Aliumigration contends with the native population. ————————– Jews… Read more »

“Let me enlighten you, (((fellow Aryans)))!! These are the ‘good jews’. (((Trust me.))) They’re ready and eager to defend White interests against the predations of the ‘bad jews’, who are easily identified and distinguished from the ‘good jews’. These ‘good jews’ want nothing more than to see Whites triumph over the ‘bad jews’. They’re an extraordinarily selfless people, these ‘good jews’. They’ve seen the wisdom in the pathological altruism of White liberals and cuckservatives, and they want to replicate that success within their own communities.

Yep. Judaism is very bizarre in that the Talmud is hyper legalistic and the Kabbalah is pure mysticism, too sides of the dialectic, to either mystify (like it did our European thinkers and philosophers like Pico, Dee, or Giorgi), or legislate as it does in the modern court systems through the silencing and imprisonment of intellectual and religious dissidents. Somehow these disparate forces combine within that bizarre religion to create a synthesis seldom understood by us gentiles…

John Dee was the ultimate cuck. A competent intelligence agent and cryptographer, he succumbed in his later years to rank superstitions and lost his fortune, his books – and even his wife – to a charlatan who sold him on idiocy about “Guardian Angels” and speaking to the dead.

Ron Hubbard. The Zohar is nothing but the rantings of an insane person likely on drugs, there is… Read more »

You mentioned Jack Parsons. He is an interesting example of how a person could be highly intelligent and yet succumb to magical thinking. The problem lies in the white man’s imagination: we are highly imaginative individuals, that imagination allow us great accomplishments (technical, literary, political, etc) but if we don’t keep it in check, we could end in magical thinking, mysticism, etc, etc.

Two different set of jews created Qabbalah, and the Talmud. The latter is from Hebraic times, the former from the Middle Ages. This is important to note because the jews no longer follow their original faith but rather the watered down, materialistic and legalistic form of judaism commonly called rabbanic judaism.

Hamm

Yeah that’s true historically speaking, the Talmud (remember that is very broad umbrella that covers the Babylonian Talmud (something like 22 volumes? and includes the Mishnah and Tosefta) and the Jerusalem Talmud. I understand the Jerusalem Talmud predates the Babylonian. The Jewish mystics created their own Kabbalah out of various ideas borrowed from other faiths with some original qualities too. Kabbalah is important because (though yes, I agree it is a load of rubbish), it is what constitutes Freemasonry according to Albert Pike(Scottish Rite) and more famous Jewish Freemasons have said as much–that Freemasonry and Judaism were basically in tandem–amounted… Read more »
