Race is a reflection of biology and evolutionarily-adapted biological predispositions—it is anything but a social construct. It is, in fact, just the opposite: a given society or culture is a construction of the race(s) or ethnicity/ethnicities which it consists of. Biology drives culture. All cultures are a reflection of the people who comprise them. Each culture’s degree of prosperity, safety, and sophistication is a reflection of its unique peoples. There are of course exceptions, and there are other factors to consider as well, but it is indisputable that, in general, disparate outcomes from the civilizational level on down are primarily attributable to racial differences. These racial differences, from IQ to crime to polygynous mating habits, are very real and they are intractable.
Today, in the United States, 77.3% of all black births are out of wedlock (92% of children from a white mother and black father are born out of wedlock, and 82% wind up on government assistance). This is not a recent phenomenon, either. From Frederick Ludwig Hoffman’s Race Traits and Tendencies of the American Negro, we learn:
- In Washington, DC, from 1879-1894, 22.5% of black births were illegitimate, as opposed to less than 3% of whites’.
- In the then-British colony of Jamaica (91% black), from 1880-1894, the percentage of illegitimate births on the island ranged from a low of 57.7% in 1880 to a high of 61.7% in 1889.
For Theodore H. White, blacks in pre-“Civil Rights” America (1956 in this case) lived similarly to today:
Fifteen to 25 percent [Negroes] unemployed here [in Chicago]; one quarter of [Negro] families in some [census] tracts without fathers; of 17,000 Negro births in Chicago, an estimated 4,000 illegitimate…Of all the women in Chicago's county jail, 69 percent are Negro; of all the men, 62 percent; of all the forlorn on relief, 72 percent Negro; of all the clients of public housing in Chicago, seeking the shelter of the government, 70 percent Negro. And in Detroit, Philadelphia, New York, kindred figures grimly repeat themselves.
Does this mean society is just as “racist” as before, or that certain groups, for reasons related to intelligence, serum testosterone levels, high time preference, and low impulse control simply commit more crime? Despite consisting of just 13% of the US population, blacks commit 52.5% of the country’s homicides. Black criminality is ubiquitous regardless of the region.
Blacks in Missouri have a murder rate 16.3 times that of whites per capita, a rape rate five times that of whites per capita, an assault rate 5.3 times that of whites per capita, and a robbery rate 22.2 times that of whites per capita. In Virginia, for the year 2008, blacks committed 64% of the state’s murders, 38% of its forcible sex offenses, 42% of rapes, 82% of robberies, 45% of burglaries, 52% of aggravated assaults, 36% of incidents of vandalism, 47% of drug/narcotics violations, 49% of motor vehicle thefts, 70% of purse snatchings, 36% of incidents of counterfeiting/forgery, 45.5% of shoplifting offenses, 66% of incidents of extortion/blackmail, 44.4% of “simple assaults,” 52% percent of kidnappings, 49% of incidents of welfare fraud, 39% of statutory rapes, 52.4% of instances of bribery, 56% of offenses against the family, and 44% of total larcenies. At 9.1% of the population of the state of Connecticut, blacks commit over half of the murders and over one-third of the rapes.
These behaviors are not confined to just blacks, either. To various degrees, Hispanics, Arabs, non-Northeast Asians, and assorted aborigines all display similar predispositions to polygyny, poverty, and crime. 57% of Hispanic births in America are out of wedlock. 67% of Amerindian children are born out of wedlock. According to the Justice Department:
American Indian women are 10 times more likely to be murdered than other Americans. They are raped or sexually assaulted at a rate four times the national average, with more than one in three having either been raped or experienced an attempted rape.
Guam, which is 7.1% white with the rest Asian or Pacific Islander, has the second-highest rape rate in America, behind Alaska, whose rate is driven largely by aborigine peoples; 56% of Amerindian and Alaskan aborigine women have been victims of sexual assault or sexual violence. This pattern is repeated again and again and again regardless of state, region, or nation (as just one example, in 2011, non-whites in the UK committed 51.9% of rapes, 50.1% of sex crimes, 67% of gun crimes, 65% of knife crimes, 71% of personal robberies, and 74% of purse snatchings), yet somehow, some way, blacks and browns are never held responsible, never culpable for their behavior, but are instead victims of pernicious white racism or, in the absence of whites, long-passed colonialism (or “imagined” colonialism as the case may be, such as in Ethiopia or Afghanistan).
There is a direct correlation between IQ and crime, and IQ and wealth disparities. Richard Lynn places the hereditability of intelligence at 80%, which is perfectly in keeping with the 80% nature-20% nurture theory I subscribe to. Nothing controversial there at all—and yet, highly controversial for the egalitarians. To quote Rik Storey:
Saying that competition, science, property, modern medicine, consumerism and a strong work ethic made Westerners more successful is putting the cart before the horse. Culture is a manifestation of the individuals interacting within a society. It is a bottom-up, organic process; the success of the West wasn’t something created by the state but by individual Westerners despite the rise of statism. Yet, there is still tremendous, even legislated resistance, to accepting any role whatsoever that biology may have played for the successes of any group of people. To understand why, I spoke with Richard Lynn, Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of Ulster. "Political correctness is the root of the explanation of this problem," Lynn told me. "People differ genetically and if you say, for example, that some people are more intelligent than others, this is going to hurt the feelings of the less intelligent. This is the reason there is such resistance to accepting the truth."
These are the least educated countries in the world (shown with literacy rate percentage first, and then national average IQ):
- Burkina Faso 21.8% / 68
- South Sudan 24.4% / 70.5
- Chad 25.7% / 68
- Niger 28.7% / 69
- Guinea 29.5% / 67
- Benin 34.7% / 70
- Sierra Leone 34.8% / 64
- Ethiopia 35.9% / 66
- Mozambique 38.7% / 64
- Senegal 39.3% / 67
According to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), most of the “refugees” the boundlessly-compassionate Left insists we must take in—as long as it’s not in their neighborhood—are not refugees at all; consistent with the finding that only between 2.5-3% of the “migrants” flooding Europe are actual refugees, only a paltry 1.1% of the UNHCR’s resettlement submissions for 2017 qualified as “emergency status.” Most of these “refugees” are simply migrants fleeing the Third World hell of their own design. According to the World Economic Forum, ranked by the metrics of economic, social, and political freedom, legal protections, and safety and security, it’s all African and Middle Eastern nations that are the worst countries in the world for women:
- The Central African Republic
- The Democratic Republic of the Congo
The top twenty nations on the Fragile State Index (meaning least stable), in order, are as follows: South Sudan, Somalia, the Central African Republic, Yemen, Sudan, Syria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Chad, Afghanistan, Iraq, Haiti, Guinea, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Guinea-Bissau, Burundi, Pakistan, Eritrea, and Niger; the countries with the lowest life expectancy on earth are Swaziland, Angola, Zambia, Lesotho, and Mozambique. Six of the top eight countries for violent death rates per 100,000 people are in Latin America—El Salvador, Guatemala, Venezuela, Belize, Colombia, and Honduras—and one is in the Caribbean—Trinidad and Tobago. Haiti, Panama, Brazil, Guyana, Jamaica, and Mexico are all also in the top twenty most violent nations on earth, yet concerns over our porous southern border are dismissed as ignorant xenophobia.
From Sweden to South Africa to Australia (where the summer 2000 incident of fourteen Lebanese immigrants specifically targeting white Australian women and teenagers in Sydney for assault and gang rape—the attackers said things like “You deserve it because you’re an Australian” and “Does Leb cock taste better than Aussie cock, pig?”—has vanished down the Memory Hole), there is ample evidence that not only do most non-whites and Southeast Asians fail to adapt to our standards and instead re-create the dysfunction from whence they came, they internalize this failure and act out their aggression on the host populations.
We either learn the lesson that all cultures and all people are not created equal now, or we learn it later once, quoting Christopher Langan, “This country [turns] into a dystopian plum pudding of ‘Little Somalias’ in one big ‘Greater Mexico.’”
