From the New York Times:

We’re Sick of Racism, Literally
By DOUGLAS JACOBS NOV. 11, 2017

Perceptions of discrimination like those the officers experienced, as well as those that are less direct, may make us sick. And in the current political environment, with its high-profile expressions of racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, homophobia and xenophobia, along with widely covered acts of hate and bigotry, countless Americans are at risk of this type of harm.

… We know this because in 2008, researchers studied the effects of discrimination on blood pressure. Black and Latino study participants recorded their interactions with perceived racism and were outfitted with blood pressure monitors. The results were striking. While blood pressure normally dips at night, those who said they’d experienced racism were more likely to have blood pressure that did not — and this has been strongly linked to increased mortality. Over time, this high blood pressure hardens our arteries, increasing the risk of a clot forming in our hearts or brains.

In 2015, researchers examined the effect of discrimination on cortisol, a natural hormone that helps the body deal with stressful situations. They followed black and white children in Maryland, measuring their perceived racial discrimination starting in seventh grade and for 20 years thereafter. When study participants were in their early 30s, researchers calculated their cortisol levels. Perceptions of discrimination consistently predicted slower declines in cortisol level throughout the day, which is associated with obesity, depression, decreased immune function, cancer and death.

These days, it’s nearly impossible to avoid headlines about things like the white nationalists and neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville, Va., and the recent spike in expressions of identity-based hate and harassment. …

Even if one denies that these self-reported instances constituted actual discrimination, it is this perception of discrimination, in and of itself, that is linked to poor health.

Worse, we know that racism doesn’t have to be experienced in person to affect our health — taking it in the form of news coverage is likely to have similar effects. After all, studies have shown that when television viewers observe scenes depicting racism, their blood pressure remains elevated long after the scenes are over. That means it’s reasonable to believe that every time we see a TV news segment or even get a notification on our phones about an event, statement or policy that we believe represents discrimination, our bodies pay the price.

Douglas Jacobs is an internal medicine resident at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

The logical implication is that the current epidemic of hate hoaxes that falsely accuse whites of racism, such as the ones exposed last week at the Air Force Academy and Kansas State, are not only anti-white acts of hate, but they are also bad for the health of non-whites by wrongly increasing non-whites’ perceptions of discrimination.

Of course, nobody involved in writing or editing this op-ed appears to have noticed this. After all, Hate Hoaxes aren’t a thing.

    And, ah, studies that translate population genetics trends into social ones.

    Blacks have higher blood pressure as a population, and more high BP medical problems as a result.

    https://www.cdc.gov/bloodpressure/facts.htm

    Thus once again 12% of the population is causing an outsized and very costly set of ill effects. (How much of that $46 billion in costs would be there if the US were still a majority white nation? About a third, it appears.)

    But the important take away message here, dearie, is that white men and married white women especially are all racists steering health, prosperity, and longevity away from Black Bodies.

    You note there was no mention of how anti-white racism stresses whites in the above. Who appear to rank higher than Hispanics and lower than blacks on population incidence of high BP.

    FWIW this Douglas (B.) Jacobs (not the Harvard Med shrink Douglas G. Jacobs) took his master's in public health at UCSF, the hottest and beddiest hotbed of leftist thinking on all things biological.

    His 2016 internship class at B&W (Boston):

    http://www.brighamandwomens.org/Departments_and_Services/medicine/medical_professionals/residency/Medical/Interns2015.aspx

    Here's his rarely used Twitter feed where he re-txes Obama, Jimmy Kimmel, and Van Jones.

    https://twitter.com/douglasbjacobs

    I figure he's another example of an SJW who during the Obama years picked anti-white racism as his career strategy, and socialized medicine as his future...who is more than a bit disconcerted at how things have evolved.

    His high school, La Costa Canyon HS, according to Wikipedia:


    2,295 students were enrolled at La Costa Canyon High School in 2014, with a senior class of over 550 students. The pupil-teacher ratio is 27:1. The average SAT score in 2013-2014 was 1830 and the average ACT score was 28. For the 2013-2014 school year LCC had an API of 834.[1] Approximately 93% of the students are college bound and 25% of the current senior class entered with a GPA of 4.0 or higher.[2] The student body is 75% Caucasian, 17% Hispanic, 6% Asian/Pacific Islander, 1.5% other, and .5% African-American.[3]

    I would hypothesize that not all acts of discrimination are the same. To be sure, it must be stressful to walk into a bar and be told “we don’t want your kind around here.”

    But what about the situation where a noose is found on campus? In that case, even if it’s real, it will provoke widespread condemnation, attention, sympathy, candlelight vigils, more resources devoted to X Studies, etc.

    It’s kind of like the difference between being a child who is really sick and a child with a mild cold who gets to take the day off from school and be fussed over by mom.

    It’s kind of like the difference between having a disability that puts you in a wheelchair and having a doctor certify that you have a short attention span and getting double time on tests.

  10. Burdened as I am with a literal mind, I am skeptical of arguments that make claims such as this one: “While blood pressure normally dips at night, those who said they’d experienced racism were more likely to have blood pressure that did not — and this has been strongly linked to increased mortality. Over time, this high blood pressure hardens our arteries, increasing the risk of a clot forming in our hearts or brains.”

    From the information given, there is absolutely no reason to believe that the “experience of racism” was the cause of the high blood pressure in the test groups. It is plausible (indeed proven) that blacks as a group have higher blood pressure and suffer higher rates of heart disease. The sentence, as it is written, only highlights the correlation between blacks (who are more likely to claim to have “experienced racism”) and the (unacknowledged by the author) fact that blacks also are more likely to experience the effects of high blood pressure.

  11. Thought-provoking statements in the linked-to NYT article:

    “cortisol, a natural hormone that helps the body deal with stressful situations … When study participants were in their early 30s, researchers calculated their cortisol levels.”
    Why “calculated”? Can this hormone not be measured directly?

    “measuring their perceived racial discrimination starting in seventh grade and for 20 years thereafter”
    How does one measure racial discrimination? How does one measure perceived racial discrimination? Is this actual measurement by investigators, or self-reporting of a feeling by study participants?

    “More than 700 studies on the link between discrimination and health have been published since 2000.”
    That’s one such study every nine days. (Check my arithmetic.)

    “Black and Latino study participants recorded their interactions with perceived racism and were outfitted with blood pressure monitors. … While blood pressure normally dips at night …”
    So these blood pressure monitors were worn 24 hours a day? How was it verified that wearing a monitor 24 hours a day does not itself alter blood pressure? Was their a companion study linking perceived white privilege with lower blood pressure?

    Losing a season wasn't the issue. They faced a near-certain chance of spending the rest of their lives being tortured in unspeakable ways in prison, and barely escaped by the Grace of God.

    Consider how many white boys aren't so lucky and whose parents can't afford such good lawyers. Remember the enlightened Duke University community was calling for the lacrosse players to be castrated.

    Less than a month ago, Sailer wrote

    The weak form of the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis is that having a term for a reality or a concept makes it easier to notice that reality and easier to think about that concept, while not having a term for it makes thinking harder.

    The first hit for a search on the NYT’s home page for “Sapir Whorf;” was this Letter from 2000 (fair-use excerpt):

    There’s more to ”How Culture Molds Habits of Thought” (Aug. 8, 2000) than appears at first sight… The Sapir-Whorf hypothesis was contrary to prevailing academic wisdom, and was effectively ignored. Educators and sociologists have long known that culture — early and not-so-early childhood environment in the broadest sense — strongly affects development of the cognitive abilities favored by Western culture… No culture is morally better or worse than any other… The challenge will be to enable members of every culture to adopt economically effective ”Western” cognitive styles while preserving the values, artistic expression and community that are special to each culture.

    So Times editors should be familiar with the concept.

    Dr. Jacobs claims that black people’s perception of whites’ animus has measurable adverse impact on blacks’ health. Whether this is correct or not (Replication Crisis), it’s a good reason to read America’s Foremost Public Intellectual. The finale of Between the World and Me suffices for this purpose, excerpted in this comment to an earlier post.

    Familiarizing myself with Ta-Nehesi Coates’ feelings towards middle-class white Americans makes me sick(er). What would it do to your family’s health, Doc? Do you have any white middle-class American patients at risk for exposure to these toxins?

No logical arguments or facts will help you, we are talking about feelings here, so get on with the program.

    By the standards of Disparate Impact, CBS News is one of the most racist organizations imaginable, far worse than the KKK in its heyday.

    A week ago, Sunday Morning presented "The essential Ta-Nehisi Coates", a loving tongue bath composed by reporter Martha Teichner. The show portrays TNC's searing honesty and piercing insights and righteous anger -- but Teichner neglects to mention the loathing of middle-class white Americans that he conveys so elegantly in his writing.

    Per Dr. Jacob's thesis, this omission protects the health of whites. Even if this isn't the stated objective, the effect is clear. And that's what counts.

    Compare that to CBS's extensive coverage of the White Supremacists who have been terrorizing people of color at the Air Force Academy, Kansas State University, and elsewhere. Who can say how many recent murders of young black men are due to increased cortisol levels, at least in part.

    As further evidence in this pattern of racist discrimination, consider the local CBS affiliate's coverage of Halloween night in Baltimore. The delicate health of the white overlords is sheltered from any indication of the identity of the "teens" who "terrorized trick-or-treaters and used bats and boards to attack people in Baltimore on Halloween night."

    If only blacks were afforded the same protection by the media.

    "How can being constantly praised, even worshipped...?"

    In Conrad's "Niqqer of the Narcissus", the lone black on board the square-rigged ship "Narcissis" is coddled and exempted from daily labor because of his supposed delicate constitution. But that didn't prevent him from bemoaning his alleged cruel treatment at the hands of the white crewmen.

    At first the crew thought that the niqqer, because of his handsome physique, would be capable of real labor and would be a leader of men (we could call this an example of Priss Factor's Fallacy). But he failed in every respect, took to his bed and demanded special meals etc. At first scornful, the men's attitude towards him eventually softened and finally they adopted him as a sort of hot-house flower.

    Even in the 19th century it was obvious to perspicacious observers of human relations that the black man regarded himself as a special case and used this pretext to demand special favors and exempt himself from the rules of conduct that govern the affairs of real human beings. Unfortunately, white people are suckers for those who claim to be handicapped--even if, as in this case, the handicap is supposedly the result of mistreatment by the very same white people from whom one is begging special favors. (A circular logic that only a black man--because of his inability to think abstractly--could employ without embarrassment).

He’s actually just a resident at BWH, you can’t be a resident “at” a medical school. BWH is affiliated with Harvard and so all the residents there are technically “officers of Harvard” but you never mention that to other doctors. The prestige is entirely in being at BWH.

I suspect that the politicians and special interests groups which benefit from keeping Blacks down will double down on the narrative, especially knowing it hurts Blacks, keeping them stressed, unhealthy , weak and dependent on government handouts, special programs and more jobs opportunities for Social justice Warriors...

    It’s not okay to be a white kid.

    This is a great country. People like Ekoh Yankah can come here from every G-d-forsaken corner of the world, enjoy the amenities and freedoms, and then set about telling Americans how awful and racist we are.

    Ekoh Yankah's Op-Ed "Can My Children Be Friends With White People?" is well written and powerful. The Professor at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University starts by explaining to naive white readers why the answer for his 4-year-old son is No. As with America's Foremost Public Intellectual, this is a springboard to a larger theme: because enough white people voted for Trump to secure his election, Prof. Yankah cannot have genuine white friends, either.

    In the middle paragraphs, Prof. Yankah walks back his rhetoric a bit, allowing that whites who further black interests with the right combination of zeal and subservience might still be able to achieve his friendship. However, there is no place for the apologists (the “good” Trump voters)

    the deepest rift is with the white people who understand that Mr. Trump says “unfortunate” things but support him because they like what he says on jobs and taxes. They bristle at the accusation that they supported racism, insisting they had to ignore Mr. Trump’s ugliness. Relying on everyday decency as a shield, they are befuddled at the chill that now separates them from black people in their offices and social circles. They protest: Have they ever said anything racist? Don’t they shovel the sidewalk of the new black neighbors? Surely, they say, politics — a single vote — does not mean we can’t be friends.
     
    The Professor's heart is unbearably heavy when he assures them that friendship is impossible.

    However, all hope is not lost for the NYT's core readership. For instance, Prof. Yankah graciously extends an olive branch to the white members of his wedding party -- he won't cut them loose, as long as they continue to march in protest, rush to airports to protest the president’s travel ban, and otherwise share the risks required by strength and decency. Happily, the professor's bi-ethnic wife wife remains his most trusted friend, even though she understands she is seen as a white woman.

    For at least 12 years, Sailer has been writing about "Citizenism" as an alternative to varied flavors of Current-Year ideals of what America should be. As a victor in the Culture Wars, Professor Yankah prefers his tribalist vision. I hope things works out well for him, and for all my fellow citizens.

    But I have my doubts.

    Of course, the rise of this president has broken bonds on all sides. But for people of color the stakes are different. Imagining we can now be friends across this political line is asking us to ignore our safety and that of our children, to abandon personal regard and self-worth.
     
    Yeah, because it's most likely your kid's white friends that are going to put him in a situation where he ends up getting shot.

    Isn't it ironic that blacks actually migrate to the US in order to be oppressed?

    Don't oppressed people typically want to flee their oppressors? Large numbers of people fled the Soviet Union or Cuba for the West. A large number of Iranians fled the mullahs. If whites are so racist, why do blacks want to come here? Why do they stay?

    I'm being sarcastic, of course.

  32. The young Alt-Right people have taken the right stance with Blacks and the Whites in the Democrat Party who coddle the Blacks: scorn and mockery.

    The Alt-Right young people are well aware of the high costs of avoiding Black people. That is why the Alt-Right kids despise upper middle class and wealthy Whites who hypocritically say they love Blacks while exerting tremendous amounts of energy in avoiding them. The Alt-Right kids should step up their attacks on those Whites who fuel the fire of the hate hoaxes popping up in America.

    It is the wealthy and powerful Whites who are benefiting from all this hate hoax nonsense. Regular Whites need to do more than scoff at the anti-White hate hoax nonsense. President Trump should have fired that slob by the name of Jay Silveria at the Air Force prep school who so joyfully condemned other Whites after a hate hoax incident. If he was fired and had his pension taken away that would begin to send a message that Whitey ain’t finding the hate hoax crud so funny anymore.

    This piece makes perfect sense if you understand Trump to be Hitler. If I were a German Jew in 1933 and my neighbor said he had voted for Hitler because he was going to restore the economy, etc. and his vote had nothing to do with racism, I would still not trust the guy.

    The only problem is that Trump has never said or done anything that makes him "Hitler". Anything except block the Coalition of the Fringes (of whom blacks are the senior partner) from remaining in power - and that is an unforgivable sin. He makes the analogy explicit - Trump complaining about voter fraud is the SAME THING as setting dogs and fire hoses against blacks. The SAME THING I tell you. Asking for "law and order" threatens the bodies of little black boys.

    The very premise of the piece - that the friendship of blacks, like the friendship of princes or the favor of the Lord, is a gift to be bestowed upon their inferiors the whites, but only upon those who are the worthy elect, is very Moldbugian.

    I am the white, single, adoptive father of a biracial child. Over a year ago I was departing the six train in the Bronx. An African American male toddler (three, maybe two-and-a half) sitting on his mother’s lap looked up at me as I approached the subway car door, and called out loudly, ALL joy and delight, “BYE!!!!” This kid was Olympian in his purity and friendliness,. If Athena is the goddess of wisdom and Ares the god of war, this boy was the god of innocence come down in flesh to visit me on the six, and I will remember the visitation for the rest of my life. I wanted to grab this boy, bless him, and make it that no harm or heartache would ever befall him.

    The problem with Sailer's "citizenism" solution like all others. Is that our current ruling class isn't about to change course and adopt it.

    If anything they vehemently oppose it given their hated of Trump's MAGA platform. Which comes close to what Sailer is promoting.

    Before we can even talk about the solutions offered by Taylor or Sailer, we need to deal with the disease itself - which is the white elites trying to genocide the lower class whites and their culture into extinction.

    It's clear we can't talk or let alone reach a accommodation with them. So it leaves us only one way of stopping them and their agenda...

    Each state makes its own election rules. Alabama has a law that says you cannot replace your candidate less than X number of days before an election. All states do but X will vary.
    , @newrouter
    Whatever happens to Roy Moore, his name by law will remain on the ballot on Election day.
    , @Joe Schmoe
    The date has passed to file to run for Senate from Alabama.

    That is why they held on to the allegations till now. If these females had come forward anytime in the past few decades that Roy Moore has been in public office, the Republicans could have elected someone else. Just think, it took these females decades to notice that one of the multitude of guys that they had allowed to have his way with them was in fact the same Roy Moore who was running for Senate. It is such obvious b-s.
    , @Steven Wilson
    Nuisances like filing dates didn't stop the democrats in New Jersey from replacing a senate candidate a few election cycles back. They managed to slip a former senator on the ballot and get him re-elected before he retired for good and was replaced by Booker. I don't know what the make up of the Supreme Court of Alabama but with Roy Moore being the Chief Justice that might be ...awkward.

    So I guess the answer to your question is that there are slightly more scruples among Alabama Republicans than New Jersey Democrats.

    maybe not…The leftist media which controls the narrative really could care less about blacks. The intelligent among them know that liberalism has failed the black community , yet the solution is always more liberalism to help the blacks. After decades of following the leftist solutions to the problems facing Blacks they are worse off than before. I suspect that the politicians and special interests groups which benefit from keeping Blacks down will double down on the narrative, especially knowing it hurts Blacks, keeping them stressed, unhealthy , weak and dependent on government handouts, special programs and more jobs opportunities for Social justice Warriors…

    Even if one denies that these self-reported instances constituted actual discrimination, it is this perception of discrimination, in and of itself, that is linked to poor health.

    Worse, we know that racism doesn’t have to be experienced in person to affect our health — taking it in the form of news coverage is likely to have similar effects. After all, studies have shown that when television viewers observe scenes depicting racism, their blood pressure remains elevated long after the scenes are over. That means it’s reasonable to believe that every time we see a TV news segment or even get a notification on our phones about an event, statement or policy that we believe represents discrimination, our bodies pay the price.

    Perhaps the unrelenting anti-white/pro-”people of color” messages in the media is one of the reasons for the increasing death rate for whites.

That’s what the media likes to do to make money – produce stories which are emotionally triggering to draw in readers. Racial abuse, atypical acts of violence, sexual harassment, environmental disaster, all great for triggering the amgydala. And that’s why many psychologists recommend that thin-skinned people read and watch less news.

    This is a great country. People like Ekoh Yankah can come here from every G-d-forsaken corner of the world, enjoy the amenities and freedoms, and then set about telling Americans how awful and racist we are.

    Ekoh doesn't much care for you, Whitey, but he sure likes what you've done with the place!

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/11/opinion/sunday/interracial-friendship-donald-trump.html?rref=collection%2Fsectioncollection%2Fopinion&action=click&contentCollection=opinion&region=rank&module=package&version=highlights&contentPlacement=9&pgtype=sectionfront

    Of course, the rise of this president has broken bonds on all sides. But for people of color the stakes are different. Imagining we can now be friends across this political line is asking us to ignore our safety and that of our children, to abandon personal regard and self-worth.

    Yeah, because it’s most likely your kid’s white friends that are going to put him in a situation where he ends up getting shot.

    On the website of Brigham & Women's Hospital at Harvard where Douglas Jacobs is an intern, is a list with photos of its interns. Among the seventy or so on the list, there appear to be no African-Americans, but one African-looking Black with a very African name.

    Dr. Jacobs looks White, maybe Jewish White.

    They also have the African Women’s Health Center, which seems to focus exclusively on dealing with the consequences of female genital mutilation among African migrant women in the US. Sign of the times?

    Ekoh Yankah's Op-Ed "Can My Children Be Friends With White People?" is well written and powerful. The Professor at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University starts by explaining to naive white readers why the answer for his 4-year-old son is No. As with America's Foremost Public Intellectual, this is a springboard to a larger theme: because enough white people voted for Trump to secure his election, Prof. Yankah cannot have genuine white friends, either.

    In the middle paragraphs, Prof. Yankah walks back his rhetoric a bit, allowing that whites who further black interests with the right combination of zeal and subservience might still be able to achieve his friendship. However, there is no place for the apologists (the “good” Trump voters)

    the deepest rift is with the white people who understand that Mr. Trump says “unfortunate” things but support him because they like what he says on jobs and taxes. They bristle at the accusation that they supported racism, insisting they had to ignore Mr. Trump’s ugliness. Relying on everyday decency as a shield, they are befuddled at the chill that now separates them from black people in their offices and social circles. They protest: Have they ever said anything racist? Don’t they shovel the sidewalk of the new black neighbors? Surely, they say, politics — a single vote — does not mean we can’t be friends.
     
    The Professor's heart is unbearably heavy when he assures them that friendship is impossible.

    However, all hope is not lost for the NYT's core readership. For instance, Prof. Yankah graciously extends an olive branch to the white members of his wedding party -- he won't cut them loose, as long as they continue to march in protest, rush to airports to protest the president’s travel ban, and otherwise share the risks required by strength and decency. Happily, the professor's bi-ethnic wife wife remains his most trusted friend, even though she understands she is seen as a white woman.

    For at least 12 years, Sailer has been writing about "Citizenism" as an alternative to varied flavors of Current-Year ideals of what America should be. As a victor in the Culture Wars, Professor Yankah prefers his tribalist vision. I hope things works out well for him, and for all my fellow citizens.

    But I have my doubts.

    I shovel his sidewalk and this is the thanks I get?

    Me, I thought it was navel gazing self serving tripe. This comment was pretty good, though:

    I am the white, single, adoptive father of a biracial child. Over a year ago I was departing the six train in the Bronx. An African American male toddler (three, maybe two-and-a half) sitting on his mother’s lap looked up at me as I approached the subway car door, and called out loudly, ALL joy and delight, “BYE!!!!” This kid was Olympian in his purity and friendliness,. If Athena is the goddess of wisdom and Ares the god of war, this boy was the god of innocence come down in flesh to visit me on the six, and I will remember the visitation for the rest of my life. I wanted to grab this boy, bless him, and make it that no harm or heartache would ever befall him.

    Really? It's just more white self-hatred. Now it's true that baby Negroes and baby pigs are as cute as can be, so I understand the appeal and there is something wonderful about childlike innocence before the likes of Ekoh have gotten to the kid and soured him. But why does the affirmation of a Negro delight him so (would the affirmation of a blonde kid have done the same)? Because nothing makes you a more worthy and wonderful white person, someone who is not one of the deplorables like your parents and everyone that you grew up with, than knowing that you have the love and affirmation of Negroes. Normally Negroes on the subway eye you sullenly, so to have one (albeit one that is 2 years old) greet you with delight is a wonderful surprise. It gives you (false) hope that the love and driveway shoveling you extend to them will be reciprocated - you need Ekoh to disabuse you of this fantasy.

    I recall reading a comment by a southerner (who?) in a book about the Civil War that if blacks were freed they wouldn't be satisfied with equality, but would seek dominance, and that in the end, the US would either be a black man's country or a white man's. I came to the conclusion a long time ago that blacks and whites cannot live in the same country in equality.

    The problem with Sailer’s “citizenism” solution like all others. Is that our current ruling class isn’t about to change course and adopt it.

    If anything they vehemently oppose it given their hated of Trump’s MAGA platform. Which comes close to what Sailer is promoting.

    Before we can even talk about the solutions offered by Taylor or Sailer, we need to deal with the disease itself – which is the white elites trying to genocide the lower class whites and their culture into extinction.

    It’s clear we can’t talk or let alone reach a accommodation with them. So it leaves us only one way of stopping them and their agenda…

    What about the cortisol levels of white Americans, who suffer government-imposed racism and constant false accusations of extreme wickedness from all media and the majority of politicians?

    Blacks may have to put up with the occasional flash of resentment from beleaguered whites, who are then rapidly denounced and often punished, but nearly every contemporary widely-publicized story of attacks on blacks is a hoax, a dishonest plea for attention (the suffering of Genius T. Coates' little son when a monstrous white woman supposedly chivvied him), or disparate impact from obviously reasonable and proper standards applied to stupid truculent people who happen to be black and have been exhorted by the Left to regard their skin color as a golden ticket.

    How can being constantly praised, even worshipped, by the media, the government, nearly all politicians and public figures, all college and public and private school officials, and finally all public and private job-hiring and school-admission recruiters and decision-makers for your dark skin (or even just your special, magical "one drop") hurt your blood pressure worse than being denounced as evil and shunned and hired or admitted second or last or never because of the horrible whiteness of your skin?

    “How can being constantly praised, even worshipped…?”

    In Conrad’s “Niqqer of the Narcissus”, the lone black on board the square-rigged ship “Narcissis” is coddled and exempted from daily labor because of his supposed delicate constitution. But that didn’t prevent him from bemoaning his alleged cruel treatment at the hands of the white crewmen.

    At first the crew thought that the niqqer, because of his handsome physique, would be capable of real labor and would be a leader of men (we could call this an example of Priss Factor’s Fallacy). But he failed in every respect, took to his bed and demanded special meals etc. At first scornful, the men’s attitude towards him eventually softened and finally they adopted him as a sort of hot-house flower.

    Even in the 19th century it was obvious to perspicacious observers of human relations that the black man regarded himself as a special case and used this pretext to demand special favors and exempt himself from the rules of conduct that govern the affairs of real human beings. Unfortunately, white people are suckers for those who claim to be handicapped–even if, as in this case, the handicap is supposedly the result of mistreatment by the very same white people from whom one is begging special favors. (A circular logic that only a black man–because of his inability to think abstractly–could employ without embarrassment).

    In other words, the media is making relatively thin-skinned blacks more neurotic by coming up with lots of false or exaggerated stories about racism. That's what the media likes to do to make money - produce stories which are emotionally triggering to draw in readers. Racial abuse, atypical acts of violence, sexual harassment, environmental disaster, all great for triggering the amgydala. And that's why many psychologists recommend that thin-skinned people read and watch less news.

    The main target of this is whites. To remind them that all racial problems are the result of white activity/racism etc. But not, in theory, to point out the obvious – if whites have such a devastating effect by their very presence, then they should be kept separate from everyone else.

    Isn’t it ironic that blacks actually migrate to the US in order to be oppressed?

    Don’t oppressed people typically want to flee their oppressors? Large numbers of people fled the Soviet Union or Cuba for the West. A large number of Iranians fled the mullahs. If whites are so racist, why do blacks want to come here? Why do they stay?

    I’m being sarcastic, of course.

    If blacks hate us so much, why don't we negotiate a split? I'd be happy to give them a couple of states in the South for a homeland, but they'd have to move there. I remember Gorbachev saying that American blacks should have their own homeland as minorities in the Soviet Union did, and it is hard to say he was wrong.

    I recall reading a comment by a southerner (who?) in a book about the Civil War that if blacks were freed they wouldn’t be satisfied with equality, but would seek dominance, and that in the end, the US would either be a black man’s country or a white man’s. I came to the conclusion a long time ago that blacks and whites cannot live in the same country in equality.

    I think NYT is applying the principle of Ta-Nehisi’s Razor: Anything that can even remotely be explained by white racism must therefore be explained by white racism.

    Cuckservatives play the same game: Blaming widespread black failure in school on bad schools and teachers’ unions, blaming the high rate of abortion on Planned Parenthood, blaming the general decay of black-run cities on the Democrats, etc.

    Regarding all this 'hate' bullshit, the essential problem is that Whites have shown they are vulnerable to this kind of crass social and emotional blackmail by interloping ingrates whom we carry on our backs economically -- the obeisance paid to these people is completely out of proportion to their importance and contribution -- cucks and women are unable to say this plainly.

    Exactly so.

    A real racist, when being called one, gladly accepts the compliment and chirps along with his list of reasons.

    A person with a conscience, when called a racist, blubbers about not being one and dances whatever jig these extortionists are demanding.

    We homeschool. Let me tell you, it is a riot. Every day is something we’d be fired for in the government school system and they can’t do a thing to us. No oversight, no teacher certification, no tests – nothing.

    We look at the schools, it’s just unbelievable the war on white boys. No way are we putting ours in their clutches. It’s child abuse.

    And the funny thing is they eventually get caught like pests, like mice in a mousetrap or roach in roach motel.
    I think law enforcement has gotten pretty good at pest-control. They wink-wink know that when someone cries wolf, a rat is usually behind it.
    The law enforcement knows, but the Lore enforcement, aka narrative enforcement, is still stuck in MOCKINGBIRD land.

    We know live in a world of TO CATCH A MOCKINGRAT. And law enforcement has come up with some good mousetraps, I must admit. These hate-pests or hate-rats are getting caught one by one.

    good point....but also the white death may be caused by the increase in anti-white rhetoric and propaganda which now begins in grade school and escalates thru college.

    Wonder how much the blood pressure of whites increases when victimized by hate hoaxes ? Does the blood pressure of whites increase when the hate hoaxes are revealed to be false flag operations perpetrated by jews and blacks to spread the leftist narrative which depicts whites as racist ?

    Was the health of the fraternity members at UVA effected when Rolling Stone used a hoax to smear the Frat brothers at UVA ? What are the long term effects of this smear campaign aimed at straight white frat brothers ?

    What about the health effects on the Duke Lacrosse players who lost a season after a hate hoax which portrayed them as racist rapists ? Did it raise their blood pressure ? Will it result in lifelong health consequences ? Did it also raise the blood pressure of white student athletes across the nation ?

    What about the health effects on the Duke Lacrosse players who lost a season after a hate hoax which portrayed them as racist rapists ?

    Losing a season wasn’t the issue. They faced a near-certain chance of spending the rest of their lives being tortured in unspeakable ways in prison, and barely escaped by the Grace of God.

    Consider how many white boys aren’t so lucky and whose parents can’t afford such good lawyers. Remember the enlightened Duke University community was calling for the lacrosse players to be castrated.

    I would hypothesize that not all acts of discrimination are the same. To be sure, it must be stressful to walk into a bar and be told "we don't want your kind around here."

    But what about the situation where a noose is found on campus? In that case, even if it's real, it will provoke widespread condemnation, attention, sympathy, candlelight vigils, more resources devoted to X Studies, etc.

    It's kind of like the difference between being a child who is really sick and a child with a mild cold who gets to take the day off from school and be fussed over by mom.

    It's kind of like the difference between having a disability that puts you in a wheelchair and having a doctor certify that you have a short attention span and getting double time on tests.

    When I was living in japan I was told several times, We don’t serve foreigners. Didn’t stress me at all.

    Lamin F. Bojang, who fled Gambia, said it might seem paradoxical that young Africans, who centuries ago arrived in chains, now dream of coming to America — but largely because the educational and economic opportunities are so much better than back home.

    “So, if you look at the factors in place and contrast that with the conditions of the continuous struggle of the African-Americans for economic and social justice, it will be an error in judgment to say that the U.S. is becoming the Mecca for Africans.”

  85. We know this because in 2008, researchers studied the effects of discrimination on blood pressure. Black and Latino study participants recorded their interactions with perceived racism and were outfitted with blood pressure monitors. The results were striking. While blood pressure normally dips at night, those who said they’d experienced racism were more likely to have blood pressure that did not — . . . .

    Uh, no, they didn’t. They found a correlation, and then either you or they stupidly/dishonestly fabricated a bogus causation from the correlation.

    I have to point out a bit of needless bragging on the part of that author. It says he is "an internal medicine resident at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School". He's actually just a resident at BWH, you can't be a resident "at" a medical school. BWH is affiliated with Harvard and so all the residents there are technically "officers of Harvard" but you never mention that to other doctors. The prestige is entirely in being at BWH. The Harvard part is only to impress the ignorant -- like readers of the NYT.

    (I was a resident at BWH so I know all this and I say that not to brag but to explain why I know this guy was bragging)

    I’m doing my senior thesis on the history of the Afro-American Cultural Center at Yale and there’s death at every turn. To give one example, the men who founded the House, Don Ogilvie, Glen DeChabert, and Armstead Robinson, all died before they made it to seventy. One of their classmates did the numbers, and the black men in their class are dying much earlier on average than the white men.

    White people will probably deny this like they do everything else. But I’m going to put it in writing anyway. … Yale has a way of making all students (and I would guess faculty and staff as well) miserable. But the next time you look at a colleague or a classmate of color, know that they are not okay. That they probably struggled to get out of bed this morning. That they probably cried over their homework last night. That their body is physically reacting to the stress racism is putting them through. And know that unlike the struggles all of us go through at Yale, this one is completely unnecessary, and if you’re white, you’re most likely one of the people contributing to it.

    Don’t worry; it’s a slow death. And we’re gonna raise all hell while we’re alive (though very unwell).

    It looked like a different game. A respectable game.

    Speaking of the NFL, when is the league going to start calling defensive pass interference on guys who push/restrain the receiver while the ball is still in the air? I can't stand watching the games anymore what with the ref's tolerance of impeding the receiver. It sucks. Too much of a judgement call. Go back to the old zero tolerance standard.

    "Black and Latino study participants ... were outfitted with blood pressure monitors."

    Ah, studies without control groups: what can't they prove?

    And, ah, studies that translate population genetics trends into social ones.

    Blacks have higher blood pressure as a population, and more high BP medical problems as a result.

    https://www.cdc.gov/bloodpressure/facts.htm

    Thus once again 12% of the population is causing an outsized and very costly set of ill effects. (How much of that $46 billion in costs would be there if the US were still a majority white nation? About a third, it appears.)

    But the important take away message here, dearie, is that white men and married white women especially are all racists steering health, prosperity, and longevity away from Black Bodies.

    You note there was no mention of how anti-white racism stresses whites in the above. Who appear to rank higher than Hispanics and lower than blacks on population incidence of high BP.

    FWIW this Douglas (B.) Jacobs (not the Harvard Med shrink Douglas G. Jacobs) took his master’s in public health at UCSF, the hottest and beddiest hotbed of leftist thinking on all things biological.

    His 2016 internship class at B&W (Boston):

    http://www.brighamandwomens.org/Departments_and_Services/medicine/medical_professionals/residency/Medical/Interns2015.aspx

    Here’s his rarely used Twitter feed where he re-txes Obama, Jimmy Kimmel, and Van Jones.

    https://twitter.com/douglasbjacobs

    I figure he’s another example of an SJW who during the Obama years picked anti-white racism as his career strategy, and socialized medicine as his future…who is more than a bit disconcerted at how things have evolved.

    His high school, La Costa Canyon HS, according to Wikipedia:

    2,295 students were enrolled at La Costa Canyon High School in 2014, with a senior class of over 550 students. The pupil-teacher ratio is 27:1. The average SAT score in 2013-2014 was 1830 and the average ACT score was 28. For the 2013-2014 school year LCC had an API of 834.[1] Approximately 93% of the students are college bound and 25% of the current senior class entered with a GPA of 4.0 or higher.[2] The student body is 75% Caucasian, 17% Hispanic, 6% Asian/Pacific Islander, 1.5% other, and .5% African-American.[3]

  101. From the comments section of the article at the NY Times:

    amskej Northern Europe 1 day ago

    Back in ’93 I traded America for Europe with the dream of living here as a writer the way James Baldwin had done. Needless to say my plan fizzled out within 2 years but here I am, 24 years later without the slightest regret. While Europe is certainly not perfect – what country is? – I am convinced that I have been spared the penalty for having dark skin (24 years and counting) by no longer living in the country of my birth. My 24 years of living in Europe have conditioned me in ways that would not have been possible had I never left the ‘greatest country in the world’. To be terrified of the police, to receive second class service in restaurants and hotels, to be followed around in stores as if I were going to steal something, perceiving discrimination everyday of my life… Are you kidding me? Life is too short for such nonsense! Again, Europe is not perfect, but in terms of my heath, blood pressure and well being… no regrets

    I am pretty sure that Europe is much whiter than the USA. So, he has far fewer interactions with other blacks. Maybe the real reason he is so much happier is that there are so many more whites and far fewer blacks. Just saying.

    OT: Could someone explain why another Republican can't replace Roy Moore in the upcoming senate election, not even if he voluntarily drops out?

    The date has passed to file to run for Senate from Alabama.

    That is why they held on to the allegations till now. If these females had come forward anytime in the past few decades that Roy Moore has been in public office, the Republicans could have elected someone else. Just think, it took these females decades to notice that one of the multitude of guys that they had allowed to have his way with them was in fact the same Roy Moore who was running for Senate. It is such obvious b-s.

    Losing a season wasn’t the issue. They faced a near-certain chance of spending the rest of their lives being tortured in unspeakable ways in prison, and barely escaped by the Grace of God.
     
    That is ludicrous. There was never any evidence or any chance of a conviction. What they faced was defamation and black-balling.

    Three players indicted and charged with first degree rape is not what any sentient person would call never any chance of a conviction. Indictments usually lead to guilty pleas, and when they’ve gone to trial, most DAs have 90%+ conviction rates.

    That's because most defendants are guilty.

    Take a look back at the evidence as recounted by the NYT:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/12/us/12duke.html

    And add to that the fact that the victim did not report the rape to police, and the evidence was overwhelmingly in their favor.

    Here is some "confirmation":

    Eshe Sherley, Yale University, 2015

    I’m doing my senior thesis on the history of the Afro-American Cultural Center at Yale and there’s death at every turn. To give one example, the men who founded the House, Don Ogilvie, Glen DeChabert, and Armstead Robinson, all died before they made it to seventy. One of their classmates did the numbers, and the black men in their class are dying much earlier on average than the white men.

    White people will probably deny this like they do everything else. But I’m going to put it in writing anyway. … Yale has a way of making all students (and I would guess faculty and staff as well) miserable. But the next time you look at a colleague or a classmate of color, know that they are not okay. That they probably struggled to get out of bed this morning. That they probably cried over their homework last night. That their body is physically reacting to the stress racism is putting them through. And know that unlike the struggles all of us go through at Yale, this one is completely unnecessary, and if you're white, you’re most likely one of the people contributing to it.

    Don’t worry; it’s a slow death. And we’re gonna raise all hell while we’re alive (though very unwell). But when I go to the early funerals of the classmates and faculty of color I love dearly, or when they go to mine, I will not just blame cancer, or heart disease, or mental illness. I will blame you.

    A senior thesis on the history of the Afro-American Cultural Center? WTF? No website would be complete without its “history.”

    Fits my definition of an expert: Someone who knows more and more about less and less, until they know everything about noting.

    THIS guy had no problem trash talking blacks. And they took it, too.

    https://www.foxsports.com/nba/story/boston-celtics-larry-bird-trash-talking-genius-031215

    Wow! Was that pro basketball? The same sport played today?

    Where was all the contact? The defensive hand pressing hard on the back of the dribbler? The three steps after picking up the dribble? The palming of the ball? The two steps after lifting the pivot foot?

    It looked like a different game. A respectable game.

    Speaking of the NFL, when is the league going to start calling defensive pass interference on guys who push/restrain the receiver while the ball is still in the air? I can’t stand watching the games anymore what with the ref’s tolerance of impeding the receiver. It sucks. Too much of a judgement call. Go back to the old zero tolerance standard.

    Oh yeh, Bird was magnificent. What a performance.

  107. “These days, it’s nearly impossible to avoid headlines about things like the white nationalists and neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville, Va., and the recent spike in expressions of identity-based hate and harassment”

    This part just jumped right out at me……what is impossible to avoid is the non stop lying from the MSM about what the fuck is really going on and this sentence is the non issue…..it implies the ONLY problem is white people.

    good point....but also the white death may be caused by the increase in anti-white rhetoric and propaganda which now begins in grade school and escalates thru college.

    Wonder how much the blood pressure of whites increases when victimized by hate hoaxes ? Does the blood pressure of whites increase when the hate hoaxes are revealed to be false flag operations perpetrated by jews and blacks to spread the leftist narrative which depicts whites as racist ?

    Was the health of the fraternity members at UVA effected when Rolling Stone used a hoax to smear the Frat brothers at UVA ? What are the long term effects of this smear campaign aimed at straight white frat brothers ?

    What about the health effects on the Duke Lacrosse players who lost a season after a hate hoax which portrayed them as racist rapists ? Did it raise their blood pressure ? Will it result in lifelong health consequences ? Did it also raise the blood pressure of white student athletes across the nation ?

    Nobody give a fuck about what white people feel. That’s why they are killing themselves with opiates in droves.

    This insanity is getting out of hand.

    These clowns won't let up until they are eating us and adding all our women to their harems in the manner of Farnham's Freehold. Even then, they will still concoct a theory about how we are causing all their misfortunes and violently oppressing them.

    Racial oppression and vilification of a mythical great Satan (e.g. Trump) is a foundational myth that serves to bind together members of an otherwise disparate “community” – recent West African immigrants and those sold to the U.S. by their ancestors.

    Talk to Africans in a safe atmosphere and you will soon hear visceral disparagement of American blacks, in tones that even Southern Democrats in the 1950s (aka KKK) would have shied away from.

    NYT topped this one today. Someone named Ekoh Yankah has bad news for you all: your kids can't be friends with his kids.

    It's not okay to be a white kid.

    This is a great country. People like Ekoh Yankah can come here from every G-d-forsaken corner of the world, enjoy the amenities and freedoms, and then set about telling Americans how awful and racist we are.

    Ekoh doesn't much care for you, Whitey, but he sure likes what you've done with the place!

    OT: Could someone explain why another Republican can't replace Roy Moore in the upcoming senate election, not even if he voluntarily drops out?

    Nuisances like filing dates didn’t stop the democrats in New Jersey from replacing a senate candidate a few election cycles back. They managed to slip a former senator on the ballot and get him re-elected before he retired for good and was replaced by Booker. I don’t know what the make up of the Supreme Court of Alabama but with Roy Moore being the Chief Justice that might be …awkward.

    So I guess the answer to your question is that there are slightly more scruples among Alabama Republicans than New Jersey Democrats.

    How quickly some forget. Witness testimony was famously "100%" certain and both D.A. Mike Nifong and Sgt Mark Gottlieb bent and broke nearly every rule of law in order to railroad those boys. If nothing else, simply read the wiki synopsis of the case. The DNA evidence was suppressed, lied about and then fabricated.

    Thanks to the mass media, not only the entire university community but most of the country was thirsting for blood. I repeat: had they not been able to retain such good and thorough attorneys, those boys would be in prison or dead, or wishing they were, today.

    Sorry, but no.

    Any average attorney could have and would have blown that case out of the water.
