In the aftermath of the unrest we saw in Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend, Barack Obama predictably took an opportunity to reinject himself into the national spotlight by quoting Nelson Mandela. The quote reads, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion…”
Although we do not know for sure, since it is only one quote and it really only relates to one aspect of human psychology, I am pretty comfortable saying that underlying this particular quote is a much broader assumption about human nature, an assumption so false that even Google must enforce it to keep it afloat. It is the Boasian assumption that we are born with no instincts or predispositions, natural temperament or raw ability, we are, as it were, nothing but “blank slates” into which culture is thrown. This assumption is false. It is astoundingly false. Indeed, it is a viewpoint contradicted by copious, near-infinite quantities of scientific data.
While it is true that, strictly speaking, human beings are not born with hate in their hearts, it is not true that in-group favoritism and out-group prejudice are not essentially in-built. And this statement applies to members of all groups, not just white people, no matter how badly the anti-whites in the media would like you to believe otherwise. In other words, the human mind and human nature are somewhat mutable and plastic, they just aren’t infinitely mutable or plastic.
From the moment we begin to generate a personal identity, we also automatically start linking our own egos/selves to those who are like “us”, while delinking ourselves from those who are like “them”, whether racially, politically, or religiously. “Identity” is therefore inextricable from the cognitive biases that favor those like us and disfavor those unlike us, in part because in our minds, those within our group are essentially extensions of ourselves and our egos. Furthermore, the stronger one’s identity, the stronger out-group prejudice tends to be. Consider various present or historic racial leaders and advocates, whether you agree with their politics or not. Is it not true that they tend to have a very strong sense of group identity? They do not always appear to have a strong sense of group identity to be sure, but the tendency is hard to deny.
Ultimately, this virtual fact of human existence, this ingrained and enduring characteristic of the human psyche, out-group prejudice, has profound implications for “diverse” societies. Because like it or not, it means we are not very good at judging the character or talents of out-group members. In fact, we are very, very bad at it. This is why we either consistently undervalue the abilities and character of out-group members, or in an effort to compensate for our inbuilt biases, distort reality itself by tossing aside all sanity and consistency, and overvalue the talents and character of out-group members by extreme margins. It also means we consistently over-value the character and abilities of in group-members to the disadvantage of out-group members. Except in rare cases, or where truly objective criteria for assessment are rigorously applied, this is what people do.
The problem is that both democracy and meritocracy depend upon our ability to fairly and accurately judge others. In diverse societies, we basically can’t-do that. The news media was not wrong to link much of the criticism of Barack Obama to White racism. Nor is the Alt-Right wrong to link much of the criticism of Donald Trump to White haters, in particular members of the US power structure of Middle Eastern descent and to a lesser extent African descent, who often have a deep sense of antipathy toward white people, especially those white people, like Trump, who do not want to off themselves and their civilization. Indeed, I would submit to you that the reasons our leaders are basically all nitwits and our universities basically all failures are intimately linked to this “diversity” dilemma.
So, in sum, Barack Obama’s quote was, strictly speaking, accurate. It is the spirit of the quote that is essentially false and the likely underlying assumptions of that quote which are roundly false. In fact, we are born primed to prefer those like us and to dislike those very different from us. No amount of well-wishing is going to change that harsh reality. That is why nations around the world are almost uniformly ethnically and religiously homogeneous, because “diverse” societies are generally very unstable. Spin a globe and count the nations on it. That is how many times “multiculturalism” has failed. Moreover, even when we do our best to try to overcome those out-group biases, there is no guarantee that members of other groups will do the same or even want to do the same. Some groups are, after all, far more interested in conquest and self-interest than your universal ideals. Those groups that are hostile toward us will, in the end, often induce us into reverting back to our natural ways and instincts or at least compel us to take protective measures against the threat they pose to our security and our posterity. Thus, “racism” against certain out-groups becomes a protective measure in a world that is, more or less, destined to be tribal. And what seems contrary to your moral thinking may ultimately be necessary for your people’s survival and the survival of the values you cherish.
So, “no one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion”. That’s true, those things require experience. Like having rockets regularly lobbed into your neighborhood from the Gaza Strip, or watching your federal government deliberately import ethnic aliens into your communities, so as to rub out your backward, traditional culture, like in Tibet or in the US, or watching BLM’ers tell you to your face that you are innately and irredeemably racist simply because you are White, despite having devoted your entire adult life to “social justice”. You know, “experience”, that stuff you’re supposed to learn from, but that the Western power class would prefer you didn’t, that stuff which, the more it accumulates, the less inclined are you to be moved by the vacuous Marxist platitudes of failed leaders, like Barack Obama and Nelson Mandela.
I don’t hate any specific group themselves. I have no malice towards Africans in Africa or Mexicans in Mexico. I hate them being in my country and the countries of my genetic cousins. They need to return to their lands, and stay out of ours.
“That is why nations around the world are almost uniformly ethnically and religiously homogeneous”
This claim displays an extraordinary amount of ignorance. The global norm is ethnic/religious heterogeneity. Countries like Iceland and Japan are extreme outliers.
To any extent that countries aren’t homogenous and there not many they either have a karge majority like russia or are unstable like malaysia and indinesia.
What is the upside to your ideology.
You are ignorant of any culture outside your immediate area
‘No one is born hating Mosquitoes’……
‘No one is born hating Ticks’……
‘No one is born hating Anything’……….
There is a certain type of people who believe all people are the same .. 3 year olds
I don’t believe that. It takes much more than 3 years to achieve the level of programming that we witness today. Sometimes 18-20+ years isn’t even enough. It’s not like blacks ever actually choose black for themselves no matter how great they are portrayed.
There is no love without hate.
Stupid theory. I hated Jews from the first time I interacted with the sleazy demons.
Wasn’t Nelson Mandela a mass murderer whose wife enjoyed putting burning tires around the necks of her black enemies? WTH is going on with that stupid quote anyway. And I thought the science had recently shown that white babies recoil from blacks. (“Is your baby racist?” said one (((Newsweek))) cover. Yes, babies are Racially Conscious.)
We should also point out that democracy is not natural, it relies on “equality” to work, which doesn’t exist. Only hierarchies based on nature work.
You’ve “devoted your entire adult life to social justice”? Hajahajahahajahahahaja! Yeah, right!
Your failed attempt to culturally appropriate Father Coughlin’s famous term is duly noted. Sad.
IQ is hereditary. That itself should end the blank slate theory.
But our deep thinkers tell us that anyone can become anything: Men can become women, Somalians can become Americans, and people with 2-digit IQ’s can become nuclear rocket surgeons.
Not entirely. Learn about the Flynn Effect.
Based, I’m going to post this around.
Remember Goyim, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots!
Wouldn’t it be easier if we could all just unite behind the free market and cutting taxes? Imagine how much money I could make if we cut corporate taxes to 15%! We could create bigly jobs!
(((Dear fellow white people)))
Goy! it doesn’t matter what race we are! we’re all Americans who want JOBS JOBS JOBS, tax cuts, and to show support for our greatest ally!
My apologies Rabbi, your superior verbal IQ has enlightened me!
I’m not a rabbi goyim! Thats my terrific son in law Jared! Im just your friendly neighborhood Aryan President!
If nothing matters in life beyond the economic, then the Holocaust doesn’t matter.
Bad goy! It’s very important to remember that Aryan monsters such as ourselves killed 6 gorillion of god’s chosen people! That’s very important to all true Americans!
Jews are not Americans, Jews are Jews.
It is known
No way goyim! There are patriot Jews like Mike Cernovich and Ezra Levant!
Send me shekels to ensure I MAGA!
Taxes are a small matter compared to usury – at least you get something back from taxes – we get nothing back from paying interest
muh roads and muh military!
But we get something when we receive interest.
WIKILEAKS: *HILLARY CLINTON SAID: *“MY DREAM IS a hemispheric common market, with open trade and OPEN BORDERS, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere.” ~ [05162013 Remarks to Banco Itau.doc, p. 28] https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/927
Fact Check: Clinton did call TPP ‘the gold standard’
“This TPP sets the gold standard in trade agreements to open free, transparent, fair trade, the kind of environment that has the rule of law and a level playing field,” Hillary Clinton said in Australia in 2012.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE HILLARY. Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Jeff Flake, Ben Sasse, and most of the GOP establishment all share your OPEN TRADE and OPEN BORDERS dream (America’s NIGHTMARE).

I promise if your a good goy and vote to reelect me I will sign an executive order telling Jeff sessions to think about what the wall will look like! I might even cut more taxes! (So important!)
“Great Gary” is a wonderful guy, and I might even pick him to succeed Janet Yelen. If I don’t pick him, maybe i’ll pick “Smart Steve” my wonderful treasury secretary!
For some reason modernity seems hostile to the idea that you develop your sense of identity from belonging to an organic community of people related to you and knowing about your ancestors and their traditions. Instead the culture encourages you live as a deracinated, atomized individual who has to go “identity shopping” by picking and choosing arbitrary things, like from a catalog. “Hey, I think I’ll try living as a woman and see how it feels.”
The lost children of race mixing seem especially vulnerable to this, like that Jorjani character with his fantasies about restoring the nearly dead Zoroastrian religion in Iran. I gather that he has departed from the Alt Right to pursue that hobby elsewhere. Jorjani illustrates Millennial Woes’ observation that these lost children have a void where an identity would have gone in children born into organic communities of extended families.
Of course that doesn’t mean you can’t learn from other tribes. It shows intelligence on your part to recognize that other people have some good or interesting ideas that you could borrow.
But it doesn’t follow that you can become something other than yourself through an act of will. For example, a smart white Anglo Southerner can grow intellectually by reading books in the Western Canon, but the exercise just enriches his understanding of the world by placing his people and their historical experiences in a broader context of white civilization. He still derives his basic sense of identity as a descendant of the British diasporas which settled in the American colonies in the 17th and 18th Centuries.
Yet our degenerate elites mock identity-conscious white Southerners as deplorables and coal people. I have to wonder if these vacuous, alienated, free-floating elites secretly envy the grounded white people in flyover country they profess to despise.
Modernity is hostile to reality. Because reality is suffering and suffering is reality. Because the fabric of reality is firm, twisting the law of the universe has consequences. Reality is objective and knowable, it is what it is regardless of what the creature says. The moral imperative is objective and the way in conformity with Truth is narrow. Look at the Crucifix, that’s reality.
In a way, Ivanka shows the sickness of modern identity-shopping when she married an Ashkenazi Jew and now larps as a Jewess.
None of us are born with hate in our hearts, but it’s best not to take any chances because nits make lice https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b32ff10083bfac8e0c4dd3bdfee93df1fe69592795a7bf767b059460eb012a0b.jpg
The question should be asked: By whose moral authority decides what is considered hate?
God’s? Wouldn’t that be a patriarchy rule that the left has denounced?
The government? So when will the left finally admit they’re totalitarians?
A person we are presumed to hate? Wouldn’t that be a dictatorship?
The fact the left, and cucknormals, demands we love and tolerate what they deem necessary is enough to counter their arguments with a resounding “who the fuck are you, to tell me what I can love and hate”
“Cucknormals”–now there’s a term for the ages
