See this is one of those things about evolution that’s heavily misunderstood. White supremacists like to think that the races are essential to humanity. That somehow a huge chunk of human diversity that is “African” can be summed up as “black guys”. And to emphasise this they speak about the vast achievements of white guys (other than themselves).
It’s like me claiming to be awesome because of Gandhi.
People who bring this up tend to be speaking about black people. They tend to give up on this notion when faced down by Asians. Why? Well? Black people in the USA at least tend to come from low socio-economic strata and so perform poorly at schools while there are more white people to drag the average up. But Asian kids? Perform highly due to the fact that most came in as the the children of the Middle and Upper Middle Classes and so were better equipped to perform while coming from cultures that pride education and hard work but not child independence.
The joke here is that this is not evolutionarily sound. Darwinism isn’t a thing. In fact Darwin’s Theory of Evolution is not the theory that we follow today. It has grown and expanded way past “Darwin”. Racist forget that more than a hundred years of science have passed since then.
Yes, the races are different. Black people have more melaniin than white people. But what these people really mean is that there is a “poverty gene” that keeps black people poor. Must be! That’s why black people are poor!
Biology has moved past Darwin at a frankly astonishing rate because Darwin is effectively the father of a core science. Darwin turned the genteel pseudo-science of “Naturalism” into a science. A sport and pastime beloved of pastors and gentlemen who bagged game and collected insects, became a science much like Chemistry and Physics.
The strains of mankind have different allele frequencies but at no point has IQ been selected against as much as in the really soft societies of the West. In the west? Stupid people survive. People who make mistakes tend to live thanks to our medicine and our society that is designed to protect everyone. Hunter Gatherers live by the knife’s edge. There are no stupid old hunter gatherers.
I make it clear that I am no fan of Bear Grylllz but a fan of Ray Mears because of Mears’ attitude towards people. Survivalists treat nature as something to be beaten, Ray Mears learns from people who live in inhospitable environments. The end result is Bear Gryllz goes around biting small animals to death while Ray Mears lays out a three course meal he made from the same stuff. And one of the things he points out is how important traditional skills are and how much intelligence you require to live like these people we often denigrate.
The San were considered stupid. They live in the Kalahari. A place where most of us would die in a few days. The Australian Aborigines? Live off the land in the outback, a place where white explorers have simply vanished to die of exposure. The rainforest amazonians, tribals of India, Africa? All these people survive in places that are inhospitable with little to no tools of modern life and do so rather well. And we think they are stupid because they don’t pass western developed IQ tests.
Imagine how they would view Bear Gryllz? Why is that man eating raw snakes and killing them with his teeth? What’s wrong with him? Doesn’t he know that these roots, fruits, berries, game and fish are perfectly edible?
Imagine if our entire society had to survive like the Kalahari and we dropped Justin Beiber there as the entire representative of white people. Everyone would think Caucasians were idiots. They would call them “Leopard Distractors”.
We are all human. The genetic difference between us is minute and frankly our brains work the same way. Nurture determines our final goal in life, not nature. Darwin spoke about favoured “races” but he meant it in terms of survival in the environment rather the global domination of “one race”. And honestly?
Hybrid Vigour. The thing that breaks apart this idiotic argument has been known for centuries among breeders even prior to Darwin. That if you take two established pure strains and cross breed them, you get healthier offsprings. If anything it would mean the “winners” of the human race are mixed race people.
But yes, this is not evolution. This is some sort of weird race essentialism trying to back racism with pseudo-science of eugenic supremacism and failing.
This is without going into how much the creator failed basic economic theory with regards to not knowing what Marxism despite using it as a description.
