Apropos the renewed interest in my articles about Ukranian “human Barbie”, a.k.a. Valeria Lukyanova, that I mentioned yesterday, and her recent racist remarks in an interview in GQ Magazine, I’ve been thinking..
’cause we all know what “racism” is, right ? – Well, not quite, – in fact I’d say far from it.. – Is, for instance, an”Islamophobe” also a racist ? – I’d say NO, absolutely not, for the obvious and simple reason that muslims are not a race, but nevertheless many socalled “scholars” are doing their utmost to
brainwash , eh.. teach us otherwise. To me, it amounts to a degeneration of the very term itself !
How about the belief that..
“(all) members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race“.. ?
Is that racist ? – This may shock you, but I’d say.. no, not necessarily.. – IF, however, we add..
“especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races“..
then, surely, that is very clearly racist, you say.., – and I would have to agree, but only up to a point..
Now, for those of you who are still reading, here’s why I’m saying such apparent racist crap: Whereas the step from “distinguishing” a race or a group of people as inferior / superior, to actual discrimination and worse, is often all too short, it is far from inevitable, and certainly not a law of nature..
Insofar, therefore, the belief in racial differences acts as a justification for non-equal treatment, all sorts of discrimination, not to speak of deadly violence, that IS racism, pure and simple.
Consider the tittle of this book, written by my good friend, Hank Pellissier: Why is the IQ of Ashkenazi Jews so High? – Does that not – (and here I am ignoring that Jews are more like a family..) – amount to “characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race” ? – And, therefore, is “racism”..
The answer is NO, it doesn’t ! – And as long as we have scientific findings to back up our claims, how can it be “racist” to point out, and /or discuss this or that difference / variation in character, etc., among groups of people ?
How about Yair, the son of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who fell / has fallen.. in love with a Norwegian blonde, for which he is being condemned by certain religious groups, and which, according to a relative, amounts to “spitting on the graves of his grandparents“… – Is that racism ? – I’d say no. It is religious idiocy, but it’s not like they’re saying that blonde is inferior in any way , and should be treated as such. – (We all know, of course, that blondes are ”inferior”, but have more fun.. -ha-ha..) – Rather, it is.. let’s say.. and expression of insecurity.., but I don’t mean to get into a longer discussion here..
Besides, it is late / early, but first let me entertain you with a couple of leaked photos from Barbie’s own phone, which has been hacked, apparently..
We don’t want to be too serious here, do we..
