It’s okay to be white

From the Daily Mail.

We Norte Americanos are supposed to believe unquestioningly in the reality of transgenderism, while scoffing at transracialism as a genetic impossibility.

Latin Americans, in contrast, find transracialism cool and fun. The modern world is full of new chemicals and surgical techniques, they reason, so why not use them to live out your racial fantasies?

But Americans know that skin-lightening is laughable and grotesque, while having your little boy chemically castrated is progressive.

I wrote about Sammy’s earlier adventures in transracialism back in 2010 for VDARE.

    Michael Jackson *was* weird, but I'm not sure his case is really comparable. Given his vitiligo it made at least some base sense that he'd be interested in considering a "whiter" bone structure for the sake of discretion in the streets (though the look he adopted was of course anything but discreet).

    Sammy Sosa's transformation, on the other hand, seems to defy explanation.

    This denial that most Dominicans have, that they have substantial African heritage is really a sad thing. This denial is not just held by Dominican celebrities, ordinary Dominicans are in denial too. I have associated and spoken with many of them.

    I guess they look across the border and witness the ecological disaster and societal dysfunction of Haiti and think, “I won’t no part of this or these people.” I don’t blame them. Dominican Republic functions fairly well. What Dominican could believe that they are to a great extent the same people as Haitians.

    Maybe white-skinning products are a thing in Mexico and Central-America, but they are definitely not common in South America. You simply can't find those products in normal stores in Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay or Paraguay.

    In these countries dark skin is not considered ugly. But other aspects of the black phenotype are indeed considered ugly.

    So you'll see people straigthening their hairs, tinting their hair blonde, thinning their noses with surgery but at the same time they are trying to get a dark tan on the beach.

    What does wanting to change your skin color have to do with wanting to change your race? Does tanning yourself into Cary Grant imply a desire to be Hispanic? Does getting a nose job indicate a burning desire to be Gentile?

    You have a pretty neat explanation of race as extended kinship. Why mess that just to score a cheap point? There is no deeper meaning attached to skin lightening than nose jobs or boob implants.

    Those are good points, but I think that cases like Sammy Sosa's do indicate a genuine desire to be perceived as being another race. It's more than just a cosmetic improvement. Hispanic culture attaches such low social value to blackness that people in those countries use every trick and excuse in the book to dissociate themselves from it. (Classic Brazilian saying: "Money whitens.") A bit of skin lightening would therefore lead people to believe you have less African in you than is really the case, and can be inferred to play a major role in the attempt to lighten - in many cases outweighing the expected cosmetic boost.

    That's not really him is it? The face looks too long in the 'after' pic and the hair texture is different too. But astonishing race-change if it's real. He looks much nicer like that imo. That's about as light as someone with recognizable African facial features should go, though; any more than that, and they'd start looking like those weird African albinos, which is not a good look.

    Thanks for sharing, but, okay, so what?

    Not everybody has such warm feelings towards their family - oftentimes, with good reason. Such people stand to benefit from the dissociational possibilities a 'race-change' affords.

    Dominicans have a different relationship with whites for two reasons. One, they want to distance themselves from Haiti. After independence, Haiti invaded and occupied the Dominican Republic for 22 years, 1822-1844, in order to unify the island of Hispaniola. Economically the Haitians ran the Dominican Republic into the ground and the resentment lasts until today. (LINK) In the past to separate themselves from Haiti, Dominicans "whitened" their historical figures by altering their features in paintings and statues. (LINK) This practice of whiting political figures, mejorando la raza, even took place in the family of mulatto dictator Rafael Trujillo who raised his white mentally deranged stepson Ramfis as his own.

    Second, the Dominicans experienced a different form of slavery under the Spanish than most blacks did under the British/Americans/French. The Dominican slaves were treated more as skilled laborers with the Spanish intermarrying with blacks and the few Indians still left, while the Haitian slaves were routinely toutured by the French.

    The Genographic Project did an extensive analysis of Dominican DNA ancestry, and the results, surprising perhaps no one other than Dominicans, indicated an average of 49% sub-Saharan ancestry. Similar Reeeees! heard after the Genographic Project did a similar study in Puerto Rico, demonstrating that the average Puerto Rican has 20% sub-Saharan ancestry. Whereas the Puerto Ricans averaged 65% European, however, the Dominicans averaged 35-40% European (the remainder a mix of native/indigenous DNA – primarily maternal – and various Asian admixtures).

    Blanqueamiento ('whitening') is a most unfairly maligned racial ethic, and one that in a rapidly blackening planet desperately needs to be revived.

    Shitlibs want to pretend that it was all about bigotry and intolerance. But however much it may have been about those things, it was also based on a reasonable and - as time has proved - accurate assessment of the population's qualities and the measures necessary to improve its prospects.

    Whitening never held that everybody should eventually be white. It simply meant that the population, over time, should grow whiter, which could mean either a greater proportion of whites in the population, or that the proportion of non-whites in the population would become whiter-looking (-acting, -thinking).

    Clearly, such a policy doesn't require the oppression, eviction or genocide of anybody.

    Being black in such a society would be difficult, but non-blacks will soon no longer have the luxury of placing blacks' interests on the same footing as their own. Non-blacks are far better off promoting and valuing white traits and disvaluing black traits, even if some blacks have to suffer psychologically. Promoting black interests will only intensify negrification - physical and social. I don't see much possibility of a middle ground. Racial policy - any racial policy - implies winners and losers. The way I see it, black gains come at everybody else's expense (particularly in the long-run). Blacks winning implies non-blacks losing, therefore I have no interest in seeing blacks winning.

    That’s not really him is it? The face looks too long in the ‘after’ pic and the hair texture is different too. But astonishing race-change if it’s real. He looks much nicer like that imo. That’s about as light as someone with recognizable African facial features should go, though; any more than that, and they’d start looking like those weird African albinos, which is not a good look.

    When I look in the mirror I see in my face myriad similiarities to my immediate and extended family, dead and living, but especially my dad, whom I loved and fiercely admired while he was alive. Surgically or chemically altering myself would be like throwing the family picture album into a furnace.

    Thanks for sharing, but, okay, so what?

    Not everybody has such warm feelings towards their family – oftentimes, with good reason. Such people stand to benefit from the dissociational possibilities a ‘race-change’ affords.

    Dominicans have a different relationship with whites for two reasons. One, they want to distance themselves from Haiti. After independence, Haiti invaded and occupied the Dominican Republic for 22 years, 1822-1844, in order to unify the island of Hispaniola. Economically the Haitians ran the Dominican Republic into the ground and the resentment lasts until today. (LINK) In the past to separate themselves from Haiti, Dominicans "whitened" their historical figures by altering their features in paintings and statues. (LINK) This practice of whiting political figures, mejorando la raza, even took place in the family of mulatto dictator Rafael Trujillo who raised his white mentally deranged stepson Ramfis as his own.

    Second, the Dominicans experienced a different form of slavery under the Spanish than most blacks did under the British/Americans/French. The Dominican slaves were treated more as skilled laborers with the Spanish intermarrying with blacks and the few Indians still left, while the Haitian slaves were routinely toutured by the French. (LINK)

    mejorando la raza

    Blanqueamiento (‘whitening’) is a most unfairly maligned racial ethic, and one that in a rapidly blackening planet desperately needs to be revived.

    Shitlibs want to pretend that it was all about bigotry and intolerance. But however much it may have been about those things, it was also based on a reasonable and – as time has proved – accurate assessment of the population’s qualities and the measures necessary to improve its prospects.

    Whitening never held that everybody should eventually be white. It simply meant that the population, over time, should grow whiter, which could mean either a greater proportion of whites in the population, or that the proportion of non-whites in the population would become whiter-looking (-acting, -thinking).

    Clearly, such a policy doesn’t require the oppression, eviction or genocide of anybody.

    Being black in such a society would be difficult, but non-blacks will soon no longer have the luxury of placing blacks’ interests on the same footing as their own. Non-blacks are far better off promoting and valuing white traits and disvaluing black traits, even if some blacks have to suffer psychologically. Promoting black interests will only intensify negrification – physical and social. I don’t see much possibility of a middle ground. Racial policy – any racial policy – implies winners and losers. The way I see it, black gains come at everybody else’s expense (particularly in the long-run). Blacks winning implies non-blacks losing, therefore I have no interest in seeing blacks winning.

    What does wanting to change your skin color have to do with wanting to change your race? Does tanning yourself into Cary Grant imply a desire to be Hispanic? Does getting a nose job indicate a burning desire to be Gentile?

    You have a pretty neat explanation of race as extended kinship. Why mess that just to score a cheap point? There is no deeper meaning attached to skin lightening than nose jobs or boob implants.

    What does wanting to change your skin color have to do with wanting to change your race? Does tanning yourself into Cary Grant imply a desire to be Hispanic? Does getting a nose job indicate a burning desire to be Gentile?

    Those are good points, but I think that cases like Sammy Sosa’s do indicate a genuine desire to be perceived as being another race. It’s more than just a cosmetic improvement. Hispanic culture attaches such low social value to blackness that people in those countries use every trick and excuse in the book to dissociate themselves from it. (Classic Brazilian saying: “Money whitens.”) A bit of skin lightening would therefore lead people to believe you have less African in you than is really the case, and can be inferred to play a major role in the attempt to lighten – in many cases outweighing the expected cosmetic boost.
