  4. Let me guess all of his accomplishments should be invalidated because like everyone else who lived back then he didn't conform to the insane standards of 2018 liberalism and critical race theory.

  10. Einstein’s perceptions of the Japanese he meets are, in contrast, more positive: “Japanese unostentatious, decent, altogether very appealing,” he writes. “Pure souls as nowhere else among people. One has to love and admire this country.” But Rosenkranz points out that he also concludes that the “intellectual needs of this nation seem to be weaker than their artistic ones – natural disposition?”

    Einstein confirmed for OG weeb. Forsees the 'art' of manga, anime and hentai.

    Natural disposition?

  16. Maybe there's something to having a high IQ and noticing patterns in groups of people? Maybe he might not have prejudged Chinese as "A peculiar herd-like nation [ … ] often more like automatons than people" but came to that conclusion through his lived experience?

    Nah, just a racist. It's not like people still regard the Chinese as ant-like herd people. He just hated them because their skin color and eyes looked different, dumb racist.

    He also talks about how in Ceylon "lived in filth and surrounded by stench." How is that a racist remark? The country was obviously covered in stench and filth, these people lived just fine in it. Is it racist to criticize a place covered in filth, or to attribute piles of filth to the people living there, when he obviously visited plenty of other places not covered in filth?

  18. Too optimistic by far. Gandhi's racism got reported on, then as best I can tell, got promptly memory holed. I expect a similar outcome here.

    Archive is acting up, sorry. :(

    Edit: Does WaPo block archive.is now? Damn.

  19. It's almost like we only started realizing that racism is bad a few decades ago or something.

    Also, tbh I was expecting way worse. The most offensive things he said were that he found Chinese women mannish and unattractive and that he was afraid of China overtaking the world (which is kind of prophetic). Other than that he said that Chinese people are extremely hardworking and he fawned over how amazing Japan is.
