The saggy pants and tattoos would be the dealbreaker for me, not the skin. A clean looking black man with a big smile and a business suit wouldn't be likely to cause trouble, in my experience.That's a nice thought, but in practice it's often not feasible to "judge everyone as an individual".
Consider this thought experiment:
Imagine you're a taxi driver, and you see two people waiting for a taxi: A stereotypical white lady in a nice dress, and a stereotypical black dude with tattoos and saggy pants.Which one are you gonna stop for?Judging them based on group stereotypes tells you: Driving the white lady gives you a high chance of getting a nice tip, and a low chance of getting robbed or killed. Driving the black dude: The opposite."No, I should judge them as individuals!", you protest.Well, how?Are you gonna get out of your car and interview them?Are you gonna invite them to a cup of coffee at a nearby Starbucks to get to know them first?Ain't nobody got time for that. They're in a hurry to go wherever they need to go, and you're in a hurry to dispatch as many customers as you can per day.So you're gonna go with the quick and easy stereotype-based cost/risk analysis.
And even in situations where it is technically feasible to "judge everyone as an individual" (e.g. when hiring employees), it still generally increases the cost and risk, so people will avoid it.
You simply can't stop people from letting their decisions be affected by patterns they've noticed.
That's why I can actually sorta kinda understand the Woke Left's strategy of rabidly enforcing the taboo against noticing those patterns, even if it means they have to descend into all-out science denial on questions relating to cognitive traits in humans. I don't approve of it, but I get why they do it.
I can't be bothered to give a proper response because I'm here to shitpost and anyways we agree on most things. The only difference in our views is the importance of nurture in shaping personality.
I'm sorry.You can't deny that it isn't an insulting insinuation.
The problem is that right now money makes the world go round. The global ruling class will always be the group with the most cash. Changing who pulls the strings would require changing the monetary system altogether. As things are, enforcing a racial quota in the government wouldn't prevent politicians from getting puppeteered by billionaires.I don't think that they deserve to be the ruling class. The majority population should be the ruling class of any place. Chinese should run china, jews israel, English brittain, etc etc. If another race wants to take over, they should at least have the decency of doing it like a man and fighting a war for it.
Huh, that's strange. It's very hard for me to imagine caring about status like that, possibly because I've seen firsthand that a good chunk of holding social status in the Western world is just mind tricks. I can't imagine what racial jealousy must be like.The brain keeps track of who is number 1 in a society. There has also been some research done which shows blacks have a more hyperactive "status-tracking" part of their brain as well. It will always bug people when they're part of a minority group, it seems to especially bug black people.
It's fine to be proud of him as long as you remember his achievements and yours are separate. Keep working hard, don't get lazy or rest on his laurels!Not if it motivates you to be better. I'll always be proud of my dad, for example.
Yeah, and that's one of the dangers of race realism. I'm not sure what should be done with this knowledge for that reason. It would be deeply shitty if blacks had to work 10x harder than whites of equal ability because they were considered to be worth inherently less.But that's what generally happens. It's unfortunate. I'm experiencing it now, I have to work 10x harder than a 4year grad because of this. It overall doesn't change much for me, but it is infuriating.
Acknowledging race realism could be used to find solutions to behavioral problems commonly found in different groups. It could also be used to clean up the gene pool by promoting the sterilization of criminals and encouraging people with desirable traits to breed more. Still, it could have some nasty repercussions....
