Neo-Racism vs. Palaeoracism

In recent days, the news cycle has been dominated by so-called “racism” stories, the best one being “shithole-gate,” in which President Trump may or may not have expressed an opinion of certain Third World countries using the S-word. There is an obvious paradox here because those accusing Trump of racism, almost certainly agree with him secretly as these are the same people who claim that it is impossible to repatriate refugees to these very same countries, because they are…well, shitholes.

But the paradox here runs deeper, as just noticing that one thing is better than another is now considered “racism,” which means that racism is no longer actually racism, but merely an absurd, dystopian expectation that all things and all people should be equal at all times and in all ways, no matter which way you cut them. In fact, this extremist viewpoint actually represents the death of racism, as racism no longer means what it originally meant—an irrational hatred of a particular racial or ethnic group.

But should we be happy at the death of racism through its conflation with a form of abstract hyper-egalitarianism? Many in the Alt-Right would say “yes” given the way that the concept has been weaponised against White people in the past. But actually, looking at things from within the framework of the hegemony of Alt-Right ideas, racism is a concept that can be redeemed to serve a positive purpose and turned to the benefit of Whites.

But how can this be? Quite simply by returning to the essence of the word, which, as already pointed out, refers to an irrational hatred of a particular racial or ethnic group. Old racism—which I will now refer to as “Palaeoracism”—was founded on a number of scientific theses that have been greatly discredited as well as a number of historical factors that no longer apply. There are also certain moral and philosophical factors that are more abstruse, but which we don’t need to go into.

One of the chief characteristics of Palaeoracism is that it looked much worse than it was.

First, looking at the scientific basis of Palaeoracism, it was founded on a clear belief in equal potential and a blank-slate view of human psychology, that goes back much further than most people realise. These ideas can, in fact, be traced back centuries, at least to the work of Jean-Jacques Roussea and John Locke, being bolstered in subsequent ages by the flawed science of the likes of Franz Boas. Because of this basis, any racial inequalities could be attributed to injustice, lack of education, poor environment, mean White people, etc. Without going into detail, these scientific premises have been blown away. Indeed, their death knell may well have been sounded by the wave of decolonisation that swept the World in the 1960s, which can be read as an admission by the most proactive elements of the White world—the colonial empires—that non-Whites had their own indelible natures.

Next, looking at historical factors, the concept of Palaeoracism arose at a time when White Western societies could easily be portrayed as denying non-Whites “legitimate” freedoms and rights—at least within the wider moral context created by early globalist capitalism, as this favoured crude forms of egalitarianism for functional reasons. At that time Whites were directly ruling over non-White countries, while in White countries themselves the comparatively small numbers of non-Whites—or occasionally Whites of other ethnicities—were denied certain civil liberties, or else socially disadvantaged in more subtle ways.

Evil” Brits lording it over the natives. (Actually they were dealing with a terrorist insurgency.)

America was the fulcrum of this, with Jews being blackballed from country clubs and Blacks being turned back from voting booths. While White homelands and White hierarchies were generally secure, non-White minorities and non-White countries were still subjected to White control and dominance, either through colonialism, neo-colonialism, or other forms of projected White dominance.

Since then there has been a major reversal to this pattern, expressed in the phrase “Black countries are for Blacks, Asian countries for Asians, but White countries are for everyone.”

Meanwhile in those White countries, non-Whites or other formerly discriminated groups have been given full rights and then more, with copious amounts of affirmative action, one-sided protective legislation, and cultural biases in their favour. By such means, along with mass immigration, we have allowed the creation of a situation where Whites are effectively being colonised and discriminated against in their own countries, where they are progressively losing power—and where Whites losing power is characterised as progress. In fact they are heading for minority status in most of their traditional homelands.

The gist of this is that there is entirely no basis on which to accuse Whites of racism, either scientific or in socio-historical terms. It is not Blacks or Asians who are giving up large parts of their societies to alien groups, while shaming each other for any unkind words that may be generated by the process.

While it is still possible to find the occasional, rare White Palaeoracist existing on an individual level, on a collective level, it can be said quite objectively that nowhere does White racism actually exist.

Leftists of course disagree with this, citing “microaggressions” or “institutional racism” as “evidence” that White Palaeoracism has merely mutated and evolved to survive in the modern era. By this metric it is also possible to argue that, based on race maps of America, which show Whites clustering together in White neighbourhoods, and the fact that Whites continue to be richer than Blacks or Hispanics, that almost all Whites are in fact “racist.” BTW that would include practically all White leftists. Also, what about all the negative things that crop up when you discuss Blacks and Black countries—the “shitholes” that Trump supposedly referred to—things like poverty, crime, disease, etc.?

But—once again—let us return to the essence of the word “racism”: an irrational hatred or opinion of a particular racial or ethnic group. When Trump called Haiti a “shit hole” was he actually being irrational or wrong in his characterisation? Of course, we all know the answer to that, even those who used it as an excuse to pile on the President.

Haiti speech: an actual shit hole would be a big improvement.

We could even say that Trump’s comment was a backhanded compliment, as a shit hole implies that somebody has actually taken the trouble to dig a hole to shit in, whereas conditions on the ground in Haiti appear to be much worse than this.

As for Whites avoiding Black neighbourhoods or countries—or crossing the street when a group of Black youths approaches—everybody, even the most signally White liberal knows that they have clear and demonstrable reasons for doing so. Even Jesse Jackson is on their side here. To quote what is now his most famous comment:

“There is nothing more painful to me than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery, then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”

Just because such behaviour has a racial quality does not make it racist as there is nothing irrational about it. You can’t call a White person “racist” because he or she refuses to walk through the ghetto at midnight, any more than you could call a Black man in the 1890s avoiding klansmen “racist.”

Racial animosities will always exist, but the key question to ask here is: Are these driven by irrational and unnatural hatreds/fears/dislikes or are they driven by rational and natural hatreds/fears/dislikes? If it is the latter, then it is not racism, no matter how racial or how hate-driven it is, as there is such a thing as rational hatred.

Evil White racist headbutting an innocent Black man’s tender foot.

Now, with this critique clarified, let us examine once again the World around us. The picture that appears is this: except for rare, isolated individual cases (that may in fact have understandable individual causes that we don’t know about), there is no such thing as White racism in the world today, and certainly no collective White racism. In fact, if anything, a great many Whites are involved in reverse racism or anti-White racism that is actively harming the health and interests of their own group.

But while there is practically no White-generated racism in the world today, there is plenty of non-White generated racism, or racism against Whites.

A simple example of this is the self-righteous hatred directed at Whites who gentrify previously non-White neighbourhoods, i.e. they are literally getting blamed for improving things, the very definition of irrationalism. But there are countless other examples: Black-on-White crime, which almost always includes elements of racial animosity; “affirmative action,” which irrationally tries to reduce the number of more skilled Whites in any occupation to favour less skilled non-Whites; and, of course, the constant cultural demonisation of Whites in countless Hollywood movies, TV shows, and adverts.

The only arguments that can legitimacy be mustered in favour of such anti-White racism is the most selfish and crude forms of existential tribalism. But if Blacks are allowed that, why not Whites? That is the Pandora’s box that the Left has been working on opening for the last several decades—with recent developments suggesting that they may well have succeeded.

The very concept of Palaeoracism, which, at least originally had the credibility of its untested assumptions and was superficially backed by fleeting appearances, now exists as the very worst kind anti-White racism itself. It relentlessly and irrationally depicts hard-working, generous, and good-natured White people as a parasitical, selfish, and evil group, who deserve to be destroyed.

Dumb blondes

The objective truth, however, is that Whites are the group that has done the most to create a world without slavery, disease, and racial oppression; one with high living standards that benefit all. They are also the group that has opened their countries to the World. Let’s face it, you don’t get more unracist than White people, who, even if they closed their homelands to non-White settlement and protected their demographic dominance in those homelands as the Japanese are said to do, could not be legitimately accused of racism.

But there is plenty of racism in the world—once again remember its core meaning of irrational hatred of a particular group—but it is against us not by us. It exists at both the collective and individual levels among non-Whites and sadly among many of our own people, and is a constant threat towards us. This is why I think the pejorative term “racism,” despite its dubious past, can be redeemed for the positive purpose of highlighting the intense, manic, and rabid hatred that is constantly directed towards Whites.

To do this we need to critique past racism as Palaeoracism and reformulate the only racism that exists today—that directed towards us—as Neoracism.

Racism? Racism is a wonderful institution that should be rejuvenated and inculcated in schools. It is the last barrier to global homogenization and represents the default position of 99% of humanity over 99% of historical time. A natural and indeed necessary sentiment, racism is just one method for people to evaluate others in accord with their genetic quality. Without racism, the world today would be dominated by Neanderthals, or by the class of people who mostly inhabit sub-Saharan Africa. Civilization requires the leadership of society’s best people; those areas governed by less evolved demographics fall quickly into barbarism, as we… Read more »

I would define Paleo-Racism and Neo-Racism differently. I would define Paleo-Racism as the belief and attitude in the West that white peoples were superior, more advanced, and better than other races in all endeavors. Such views could be based on history, culture, or genetics. White people could say white people had a more illustrious history that led to greatness. Or white people could say their cultural values and spiritual power led to greater achievement. Or white people could say they are genetically more predisposed to genius and high achievement. Paleo-Racism fell out of favor because of White Guilt associated with… Read more »

I think most white Americans consider racism to be defined as hating someone due to their skin color. I have literally never met anyone who does this. The most “extreme” people I met may have hated groups of people, but they hated them because of their actions. Remember Jerry Seinfield’s old joke about what his dad told him when he complained the other kids were mean to him because he was jewish? “The other kids don’t hate you because you’re jewish, Jerry, they hate you because you’re annoying.” Wanting to associate with people who look like you?

Why don’t you just stop lying to yourself? Why put yourself through the pain of believing something that your ancestors never had to live with? It is human nature to hate certain shapes and colors. History is rife with examples of beauty being whiteness, brightness, clarity. Ugliness is always defined as darkness, foulness, dirtiness, lack of symmetry, imperfection of form. Negroes are offensive to the eyes. Their very features are overly-done and baboon-like, they offend against reason and taste. The whole world is segregated according to reason and nature. To go against it is wrong.

“Racism” doesn’t exist. It’s an invention of the jewish Frankfurt school, Leon Bronstein(Trotsky) – one of their heroes, invented it in order to silence white people.

I agree, even a couple years ago it seemed like whites had simply resigned themselves to oblivion or were actively enabling it, but in the last year there is a groundswell of white people talking honestly about race. The best part is that it’s the radical left whose exclusionary anti-white identity politics opened the door for race realism. I honestly believe their own vitriolic hatred of whites is helping to create what they have imagined for years, white identity. It’s absolutely poetic and now it’s time for them to choke on their own words.

Racism can be defined in different ways. The irrational hatred of a particular racial or ethnic group is certainly one way to define it. Another is the unsupported attribution of racial stereotypes to an individual of that race. However it is defined, racism should be distinguished from discrimination: particularly financial and economic discrimination such as employment and university admissions. It seems to me, at least in the United States, that there is more racism against American blacks (curiously though not against African blacks or even Hispanics, Asians, Jews or Indians, etc.), but dar more discrimination against Whites than non-whites.

The problem with ‘irrational’ hatred is that it is generally not irrational. If you view different races as competitors, hating other races is rational.

We can be competitive without hating. Pre-Obama, in America, the races were not really that. competitive. Everyone, except for a few on the fringe, was really working together to build a post-racial society. Well, the fringe on the Left won the elections in 2006 and 2008. Pelosi, Reid, Clinton, Obama, and the MSM came to power and incited racial hatred of whites like never before. Of course, with every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, and whites have naturally started to defend themselves out of a sense of self-preservation. It didn’t need to be this way, but here… Read more »

He may have honestly seen it that way. Obama, clumsy stoned nigger that he was, overstepped the mark, and laid the truth bare before all of us.

I agree that one thing that happened under Obama was minorities felt emboldened and had more courage to voice their resentments and for some (or many) even their hatred against whites. And whites reacted to that, which only widened the divide. But there was more than just that. During the Obama years we saw a cold racial war actively waged against whites by the federal government, the Democrats, the MSM, the GOP establishment, and all liberals in general. They twisted facts, re-wrote history, engaged in propaganda, and spouted half truths and outright lies all for one reason. They wanted minorities… Read more »

All I can tell you is what I’ve experienced personally. Before Obama, I lived in a middle class neighborhood with whites,’blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and Muslims. We were all good neighbors and most of us were friends. We got along. We helped each other when we could. We borrowed tools, gave our kids’ toys to others if they wanted it, helped each lay sod and pull up bushes, and talked on the playground while our kids played. Race didn’t matter to us at all. Now, after Obama, we have the same people, but it is certainly not the same neighborhood. There… Read more »

By nature, if it was filled with orientals and negroes, your neighborhood could not have been middle class. It could only have been an Orwellian cesspool, the result of programming and other people’s money. By nature, you could not have been good friends. Nature dictates that we prefer certain smells over bad ones, and so forth. What you were was charitable toward each other, probably out of political correctness. You worked at being what you thought was good, but now your realizing that you don’t have to.

Yea, sure. I am reminded of the anecdotal story about a mixed-race couple: a black man married to a white woman. The woman’s husband accused her of being racist because she opposed ObamaCare. In a nutshell, that’s what Obama did to America.

I wholeheartedly disagree. I believe more in blood than soil. I like the setup we have now where we have blacks concentrated in urban cages by economics alone, fenced off like the city zoo. We did it with the savage injuns too, leaving them to their mystical and liquor spirits in reservations as a tradeoff for casinos and tax exemptions. I have been to all those cities in the last year. Let them collapse. We can always build better cities elsewhere. I prefer we go back to a pastoral people actually. I will never live in the city again.

It is best to abandon the areas that are completely lost and go to the marginal areas where you can tilt the balance. In other words, swing states. If you want to have a chance of keeping the White House and Senate from falling into their hands, you have to be strategic about internal migration. Move to Florida, to Ohio and so on. California is lost. Move to Nevada.

It is time to admit we live in an era not unlike a theocratic order where espousing certain beliefs is a conditional requirement for engaging in social activity. In the eleventh century in Europe, the belief that was required was Christianity/Catholicism. For an individual to publicly disavow that system of beliefs carried heavy penalties, including death. Declaring someone a “racist” in this era is effectively a tactic to unperson them, much like declaring one a heretic, witch, or blasphemer would have been in that era.

Er. It has been to my understanding that in order for one to be racist, the person has to actually believe his race is better than another’s. I understand that this is a leftist definition, but we’re talking about a leftist term. Therefore, the anti white hatred is not really racism but the one group that’s spreading the lies actually ARE racists (They actually do think they’re better than us) but not in the “paleo” sense I geuss because their fear of losing their power over us is certainly rational.

That was the old definition. They started with the narrow definition to get universal buy-in to the idea that racism is “ugly” (i.e. a sin). Then, once it was established that racism is evil, they just started slowly expanding it to the point where “racism” now means any concern whatsoever for the wellbeing of Whites. They actually still do try to argue that any concern for White Well-being amounts to disdain for non-Whites.
