According to the Census Bureau, only 1.9% of the half-million people of Spokane County, Washington self-identify as black. And the town of Coeur d’Alene, ID is 0.4% black.

But a basic tenet of economics is that supply grows to meet demand.

From the Spokane Inlander:

Media firestorm swirls around Rachel Dolezal, the local NAACP president

Posted By Daniel Walters and Jake Thomas on Thu, Jun 11, 2015 at 2:48 PM

Questions are now swirling around Rachel Dolezal, the local NAACP chapter president and a freelance contributor to the Inlander.

Last night, KXLY reported on the police investigation into hate mail allegedly sent to Dolezal in February. The mail in question did not have a postal stamp or barcode on it, suggesting that either the postal workers messed up, planted it or the package didn’t go through the postal system at all. The TV station asked Dolezal if she had planted the mail — an accusation that she denied.

This morning, the Coeur d’Alene Press published an article in which Dolezal’s parents, both white, say their daughter has long lied about her race — she’s white, her parents say, providing a picture and birth certificate as proof. The Spokesman-Review is now reporting that a former board member from the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations has long had his own suspicions about her truthfulness.

Dolezal has not returned messages left today by the Inlander. Dolezal, an adjunct professor at Eastern Washington University, is also chairwoman of the city’s Office of Police Ombudsman Commission.

It’s extremely important that we all try to keep this straight:

1. Race doesn’t exist, it’s just a social construct.

2. But a perm, a lifetime membership at the Hollywood Tan Salon, and a deep sense of anti-white racial grievance can’t make you black.

3. On the other hand, plastic surgery, Spanx, and Photoshop can make you female.

Got that?

    "I don't understand the question of -- I did tell you that, yes, that's my dad. And he was unable to come in January."

    "Are your parents...are they white?"

    Dolezal walked away from the microphone, leaving her purse and keys, and took refuge in a nearby clothing boutique.

  3. jon says:

    I’ve been killing time by skimming through some of the stories on her – she sounds truly pathological. She has apparently faked a number of hate crimes against herself:

    Spokane police files on Dolezal’s report that she received a hate mail package and other mailing in late February and March were released. Police records say the initial package Dolezal reported receiving did not bear a date stamp or bar code, which Dolezal herself told police when she reported it. Investigators interviewed postal workers, who said it was either very unlikely or impossible that the package could have been processed through the post office, and that the only other alternative was that it had been put there by someone with a key.

    Neumaier said he was suspicious of several incidents Dolezal reported in Coeur d’Alene, including her discovery of a swastika on the door of the Human Rights Education Institute when the organization’s security camera was “mysteriously turned off.”

    “None of them passed the smell test,” he said.

    “In all of these incidents (she reported in Coeur d’Alene), she was the sole witness to events that, when put under scrutiny, don’t hold up,” he said.

She claims there were 8 incidents where she was harassed, including a noose incident which the reporter is trying to explain to her wasn’t really a noose. But the best part of the video is at the end where the reporter shows her a picture of her dad and asks if he, and she, are indeed African-American. She then storms off.

    At the 2010 census, there were 208,916 people, 87,271 households, and 49,204 families residing in the city. The population density was 3,526.0 inhabitants per square mile (1,361.4/km2). There were 94,291 housing units at an average density of 1,591.4 per square mile (614.4/km2). The racial makeup of the city was 86.7% White, 2.3% African American, 2.0% Native American, 2.6% Asian, and 0.6% Pacific Islander, along with 1.3% from other races and 4.6% from two or more races.

    Its surprising how difficult it is for people to grasp that sexual orientation and gender identity are not the same thing
     
    Because, you know, anyone might be anything and attracted to anyone we can't infer anything about someone's sexual orientation from their gender or vice versa. Bizarrely they've also admitted that, yes, 95% of people are straight and 99% of people are not trannies, but that apparently doesn't in any way undermine the idea that these attributes are just random, unrelated variables.

    They've conceded grudgingly, that the two things might be correlated. But "correlation doesn't mean anything". They are merely two attributes that just happen to bump along together 95% of the time.

    +SuperDuperSentinel Caitlyn is transgender because there are physical differences between the brain of a man and a woman and some people, like Caitlyn, are born with bodies that don't match their brains. Race however is cultural, a white person and a black person have the same kind of brain and internal chemistry. You can't be born into a race that doesn't match your brain because cultures are learned not born.

    She was the biggest anti-racist troll in the NGO where she worked. She was vicious and eventually moved the whole enterprise off its mission statement and into “environmental racism.” Which meant whoring for certain foundation $$$$.

    One of her colleagues made the mistake of asking her in a casual gathering of program staff whether, since she asserted that all humans came out of Africa, everyone wasn’t an African-American. Where was the boundary? Was it a matter of definition, or of essence? If the latter, what would it take? X percent of genome? Y number of ancestors? Back how many generations?

    That colleague was written up as “producing a threatening/unsafe environment” (or whatever the PC term was) and was asked to resign about three weeks later.

    I don’t know how much money is in this today, but this is the direction they were headed at the time.

    Actually, three attributes. Sex (XY or XX, primary sexual characteristics, etc.), being of a certain "gender", and being sexually attracted to the other sex (not "gender", no heterosexual man is attracted to "Caitlyn" Jenner). E.g. almost all people of the XY sex identify as males and the vast majority of them (including a large percentage of those "identifying as female) are attracted to members of the XX sex.
    , @gokart-mozart
    One of my favorite affectations from this latest outburst of leftist insanity is the phrase
    "sex assigned at birth" (look for it and you will start seeing it everywhere). This is now being used as a club to beat doctors and nurses who exclaim, "It's a boy!" or "It's a girl!" at the moment of truth in the delivery room, as well as its utillity for gaslighting the general population.

    Of course, "sex" is not assigned, ever. And its recognition (by sane people) does not happen at birth.

    Sex is created at the moment of fertilization, and it does not change. It can be recognized quite early in the developmental process, as anyone who has had an ultrasound knows. It is never (almost never, ambiguous genitalia are very rare) "assigned".

    http://www.city-data.com/crime/crime-Spokane-Washington.html

    It's also one of the top city's in the nation for auto theft.

    http://www.kxly.com/news/spokane-news/spokane-one-of-the-top-cities-in-country-for-car-theft/26702546

    Here are the ethnic demographics:

    At the 2010 census, there were 208,916 people, 87,271 households, and 49,204 families residing in the city. The population density was 3,526.0 inhabitants per square mile (1,361.4/km2). There were 94,291 housing units at an average density of 1,591.4 per square mile (614.4/km2). The racial makeup of the city was 86.7% White, 2.3% African American, 2.0% Native American, 2.6% Asian, and 0.6% Pacific Islander, along with 1.3% from other races and 4.6% from two or more races. Hispanics and Latinos of any race were 5.0% of the population.[2]

    Here is a video of her talking to a reporter about supposed hate crimes that happened to her. She claims there were 8 incidents where she was harassed, including a noose incident which the reporter is trying to explain to her wasn't really a noose. But the best part of the video is at the end where the reporter shows her a picture of her dad and asks if he, and she, are indeed African-American. She then storms off.

  35. “… taking criticism personally.” “… pretending to be Black.”

    I’m not surprised about these stories of women creating lives of illusion and then feeling offended when exposed. Females spend their lives recreating personal realities — illusions — from a menu of “choices” that a male can barely comprehend. They choose hair color; they choose breast size; they camouflage their “wigglies” within Spandex; they paint their faces to hide blemishes or otherwise falsely advertise themselves as being in a state of perpetual sexual excitement. When that no longer works, they undergo the knife to try to camouflage the effects of aging under the pretense of pretending to be 19 years old the rest of their lives.

    Being female and addicted to illusion and “choice”, it is no wonder that they also get to choose their race and their gender, that they are qualified for jobs and other social roles they clearly cannot perform, and, at the extreme, whether their unborn babies live or die.

    That we all are being asked to join the “religion of choice” to ground our new-found, changing illusions as realities suggests a radical feminization of our society and culture. But does it work? “Reality bites … damn God for letting reality impose on and expose our “choices” for what they are! And damn the rest of you (iSteve especially) for pointing out that our illusions are illusions.”

    Apparently

    Its surprising how difficult it is for people to grasp that sexual orientation and gender identity are not the same thing
     
    Because, you know, anyone might be anything and attracted to anyone we can't infer anything about someone's sexual orientation from their gender or vice versa. Bizarrely they've also admitted that, yes, 95% of people are straight and 99% of people are not trannies, but that apparently doesn't in any way undermine the idea that these attributes are just random, unrelated variables.

    They've conceded grudgingly, that the two things might be correlated. But "correlation doesn't mean anything". They are merely two attributes that just happen to bump along together 95% of the time.

    These people are deluded.

    They are merely two attributes that just happen to bump along together 95% of the time.

    Actually, three attributes. Sex (XY or XX, primary sexual characteristics, etc.), being of a certain “gender”, and being sexually attracted to the other sex (not “gender”, no heterosexual man is attracted to “Caitlyn” Jenner). E.g. almost all people of the XY sex identify as males and the vast majority of them (including a large percentage of those “identifying as female) are attracted to members of the XX sex.

    It’s funny, when you see her early pictures, wedding pictures, pictures of her parents, she seems like typical lower-class white (even apart from her father’s arm tattoo). And when you view the recent video of her as bi-racial, knowing she’s really white, she stills seems lower-class white and not too articulate. But if you view the recent video of her and think of her as bi-racial, she then seems articulate and smart and you wonder if she graduated from Wellesley or Mount Holyoke.

    One of my favorite affectations from this latest outburst of leftist insanity is the phrase
    “sex assigned at birth” (look for it and you will start seeing it everywhere). This is now being used as a club to beat doctors and nurses who exclaim, “It’s a boy!” or “It’s a girl!” at the moment of truth in the delivery room, as well as its utillity for gaslighting the general population.

    Of course, “sex” is not assigned, ever. And its recognition (by sane people) does not happen at birth.

    Sex is created at the moment of fertilization, and it does not change. It can be recognized quite early in the developmental process, as anyone who has had an ultrasound knows. It is never (almost never, ambiguous genitalia are very rare) “assigned”.

    I've been killing time by skimming through some of the stories on her - she sounds truly pathological. She has apparently faked a number of hate crimes against herself:

    Spokane police files on Dolezal’s report that she received a hate mail package and other mailing in late February and March were released. Police records say the initial package Dolezal reported receiving did not bear a date stamp or bar code, which Dolezal herself told police when she reported it. Investigators interviewed postal workers, who said it was either very unlikely or impossible that the package could have been processed through the post office, and that the only other alternative was that it had been put there by someone with a key.

     


    Neumaier said he was suspicious of several incidents Dolezal reported in Coeur d’Alene, including her discovery of a swastika on the door of the Human Rights Education Institute when the organization’s security camera was “mysteriously turned off.”

    “None of them passed the smell test,” he said.

Her efforts were met with opposition by North Idaho white supremacy groups, including the Ku Klux Klan, the Neo Nazis and the Aryan Nations, and at least eight documented hate crimes targeted Doležal and her children during her residency in North Idaho.

    In addition to her role as an educator, Doležal has fourteen years of experience as an exhibiting artist and has taught K-12 & college art lessons in public, private, and non-traditional school settings. Her works have been featured in The Artist's Magazine, shown in 13 states and displayed at the United Nations' Headquarters in New York. Doležal began teaching private & group art lessons in 1994 and synthesizes art history, cultural studies, & the creative process when teaching. She believes that the creative process is part of what makes us human and unifies our self-identity with the world around us. Doležal was an instructor in the Art Departments at North Idaho College from 2005-2013 and has taught at Eastern Washington University since 2007.

    http://www.kxly.com/news/spokane-news/spokane-one-of-the-top-cities-in-country-for-car-theft/26702546

    Here are the ethnic demographics:

    At the 2010 census, there were 208,916 people, 87,271 households, and 49,204 families residing in the city. The population density was 3,526.0 inhabitants per square mile (1,361.4/km2). There were 94,291 housing units at an average density of 1,591.4 per square mile (614.4/km2). The racial makeup of the city was 86.7% White, 2.3% African American, 2.0% Native American, 2.6% Asian, and 0.6% Pacific Islander, along with 1.3% from other races and 4.6% from two or more races. Hispanics and Latinos of any race were 5.0% of the population.[2]
     

    Spokanians are definitely not averse to bad behavior, but there are a lot Russians there now and they probably aren´t up to anything good. “White Hispanics” too.

  88. This whole thing about race and sex is spinning out of control as the permutations keep multiplying. I saw a classic case about 15 years ago at the wedding reception of my wife’s Jamaican friend. The bride was mixed race with a black mother, had never made any reference to her race, and was marrying a white guy, but what got me curious was one of the couples at the reception.
    They were both mixed race Jamaicans; she looked like a not quite as good looking Vanessa Williams and he looked like a younger Eric Holder. They had brought their toddler with them and thanks to the random miracle of recessive genes this kid looked like he had just been lifted out of an orphanage in Reykjavik. Straight, ash blond hair, pale blue eyes, white skin and, as far as you can tell with a 2 year old’s pudgy face, Caucasian lips and nose.
    I have wondered to this day what the kid’s life has been like. His biological parents would readily be classified as Black in the US, but physically he would be welcomed with open arms into the SS. So what does he call himself racially? Does he identify as Black and then have to continually prove it? If he applied for college as an affirmative action admission would he have to bring his birth certificate and photos of his parents? What would happen if he tried to hang down in the ‘hood with his posse? Did he end up making this commercial?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCK0WsH0wKE
    Maybe since Jamaicans in SoCal tend to be middle class professionals like his parents, he grew up in an environment where the issue rarely came up.

They also claim that race is immutable- paging Charles Murray.

    Well if that’s true, then why the pronoun game?

    That only makes sense if Caitlyn Jenner is still universally referred to as “he”. Or, if the pronouns are only assigned by how well someone adheres to socially taught gender norms, then all ugly, middle-aged women with short haircuts and wear trousers should now be referred to as “he”.

    Secondly, that explanation fails to address genital mutilation and even retroactively changing ones sex on a birth certificate. The birth certificate has nothing to do with societal norms. It is simply describing the events as they unfolded. If trans is really only about “gender” from a standpoint of feminine or masculine accepted behaviors, then sex-changes are (as they have always been) an evil lie and a disservice to the doctor and patient alike.

    one gem:
    "Gender is social behaviors and presentation. There is nothing biological about gender. Gender is taught. People can be transgender because gender is a social concept, some people who are taught to be a girl or a boy based on their genitals may feel they don't align with the gender assigned to them so they transition to living as their true/preferred gender.


    Transracial is absurd because race is based on identifiable physical characteristics. Someone who simply doesn't have those characteristics cannot claim they are another race."

    Here’s another gem from those comments, making exactly the opposite claim:

    +SuperDuperSentinel Caitlyn is transgender because there are physical differences between the brain of a man and a woman and some people, like Caitlyn, are born with bodies that don’t match their brains.

    In a failed attempt to explain what in the high holy fucking hell she was doing, Dolezal said in response to a question about her race: “We’re all from the African continent.” True, Rachel, but then why doesn’t every human in America consider themselves African American?
    Girl, WHAT?

    Why doesn’t the Spokane chapter of the NAACP have a more thorough vetting process?
    Does the Spokane chapter of the NAACP have any vetting process at all?
    Are there so few black people in Spokane that all the members just looked the other way? BE HONEST.
    Is the Spokane chapter of the NAACP real?
    Can we get a few statements from some of the students that she taught at Eastern Washington University? I’m willing to bet that a few of them have some pressing thoughts to get off their chest.
    James Wilburn, who served as president of the Spokane NAACP before Dolezal, said that some members of the group did have doubts about her background: “It was discussed among close members to me, and we kept it like that.”

    JAMES WHAT IN THE HELL? If you thought that the president of your local NAACP was LYING about being black, why why why why why why why why why would you keep that under wraps?
    Tony Stewart, a civil-rights activist in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho who used to work with Dolezal, had this to say:

    “Certainly when things like this happen it’s sad, but what I really deeply believe, and I think history has borne this out, human rights and civil rights is far, far stronger than any one personality or even one organization,” Stewart said.

    And the author of the above seemed to feel that some of the comments were insufficiently respectful of the Black community’s authority to decide who counts as Black:

    I don’t know if you’re black or not, but as a reminder: I am.

    When I look at this woman, she doesn’t really look black to me. Please don’t go into “mixed race of people can look all kinds of different ways” because, again, I’m black, so I know that. My mom’s family is part Creole and a lot of them are very light. My sister and I have the same two parents and she’s almost the same color as this woman.

    It’s not that black people cannot be this light or have this textured hair or whatever. What I’m saying is: I’m very good at telling if someone is black or has a black parent and this woman does not look black to me. I would have questioned this.

    Here is a video of her talking to a reporter about supposed hate crimes that happened to her. She claims there were 8 incidents where she was harassed, including a noose incident which the reporter is trying to explain to her wasn't really a noose. But the best part of the video is at the end where the reporter shows her a picture of her dad and asks if he, and she, are indeed African-American. She then storms off.

    PS. For a gal that went to all that trouble to look black, she forgot about the accent. She sounds too white.

    She acts too white too. She doesn’t do any of that odd head-cocking and/or talking out of the side of her mouth and/or“you don’t know me” and/or talking too loud stuff. AND shouldn’t she have called the white male interviewer racis’ for questioning her at all?

  108. Trans-racialism is a story of courage and love:

    Clarence Rivers King (1842-1901) was an American geologist, mountaineer, and author. He served as the first director of the United States Geological Survey from 1879 to 1881. King was noted for his exploration of the Sierra Nevada.

    Clarence King was the son of James Rivers King and Florence Little King. Clarence’s father was part of a family firm engaged in trade with China, which kept him away from home a great deal, and he died in 1848, so Clarence was brought up primarily by his mother. His only two siblings had also died by 1848.[1]

    Clarence developed an early interest in outdoor exploration and natural history, which was encouraged by his mother and by Reverend Dr. Roswell Park, head of the Christ Church Hall school in Pomfret, Connecticut that Clarence attended until he was ten.[2] He then attended schools in Boston and New Haven, and at age thirteen was accepted to the prestigious Hartford High School.[3] He was a good student and a versatile athlete, of short stature but unusually strong.[4]

    His mother received an income from the King family business until it met with a series of problems and dissolved in 1857. After a few years of straitened circumstances, during part of which Clarence suffered from a serious depression, his mother married George S. Howland in July 1860. Howland financed Clarence’s enrollment in the Sheffield Scientific School affiliated with Yale College in 1860.[5]

    At Yale King specialized in “applied chemistry” and also studied physics and geology. One inspiring teacher was James Dwight Dana, a highly regarded geologist who had participated in a scientific expedition to the South Atlantic, South Pacific, and the west coasts of South and North America. King graduated with a Ph.B. in July 1862. He and several friends borrowed one of Yale’s rowboats that summer for a trip along the shores of Lake Champlain and a series of Canadian rivers, then returned to New Haven for the fall regatta.[6]

    In October 1862, on a visit to the home of his former professor George Jarvis Brush, King heard Brush read aloud a letter he had received from William Henry Brewer telling of an ascent of Mount Shasta in California, then believed to be the tallest mountain in the country. King began to read more about geology, attended a lecture by Louis Agassiz, and soon wrote to Brush that he had “pretty much made up my mind to be a geologist if I can get work in that direction.”[7] He was also fascinated by descriptions of the Alps by John Tyndall and John Ruskin

    In late 1862 or early 1863, King moved to New York City to share an apartment with James Terry Gardiner, a close friend from high school and college (who spelled his last name Gardner at the time). They associated with a group of American artists, writers, and architects who were admirers of John Ruskin. In February 1863 King became one of the founders, along with John William Hill, Clarence Cook and others, of the Ruskinian Association for the Advancement of Truth in Art, an American group similar to the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and was elected its first secretary. But he was anxious to see the mountains of the American West, and his friend Jim Gardner was miserable in law school.[8][9][10]

    By May 1863 King, Gardiner, and an acquaintance named William Hyde traveled by railroad to Missouri and then joined a wagon train, which they left at Carson City, Nevada.[11] King and Gardiner soon continued on to California, where King joined the California Geological Survey without pay, in which he worked with William H. Brewer, Josiah D. Whitney and later Gardiner and Richard D. Cotter. In July 1864, King and Cotter made the first ascent of a peak in the Eastern Sierra that King named Mount Tyndall in honor of one of his heroes. From there they discovered several higher peaks, including the one that came to be named Mount Whitney.[12]

    In September 1864, upon the designation by President Abraham Lincoln of the Yosemite Valley area as a permanent public reserve, King and Gardiner were appointed to make a boundary survey around the rim of Yosemite Valley. They returned to the East Coast by way of Nicaragua the following winter. King suffered from several bouts of malaria in the spring and summer of 1865 while Whitney, also in the East, worked on securing funding for further survey projects. King, Gardiner, Whitney, and Whitney’s wife sailed back to San Francisco in the fall, where Whitney lined up a survey project for King and Gardiner in the Mojave Desert and Arizona under U.S. Army auspices. They returned to San Francisco in the spring, and King returned to Yosemite in the summer of 1866 to make more field notes for Whitney. When King heard of the death of his stepfather, he and Gardiner resigned from the Whitney survey and once again sailed to New York. They had been developing a plan for an independent survey of the Great Basin region for some time, and in late 1866 King went to Washington to secure funding from Congress for such a survey.[13]

    King made a persuasive argument for how his research would help develop the west. He received federal funding and was named U.S. Geologist of the Geological Exploration of the Fortieth Parallel, commonly known as the Fortieth Parallel Survey, in 1867. He persuaded Gardiner to be his second in command, and they assembled a team that included, among others, Samuel Franklin Emmons, Arnold Hague, A. D. Wilson, and the photographer Timothy H. O’Sullivan.

    Over the next six years King and his team explored areas from eastern California to Wyoming. During that time he also published his famous Mountaineering in the Sierra Nevada (1872).[14] While King was finishing the 40th Parallel Survey, the western US was abuzz with news of a secret diamond deposit. King and some of his crew tracked down the secret location in northwest Colorado, and exposed it as a fraud, now known as the Diamond hoax of 1872.[15] He became an international celebrity through exposing the hoax.[16]

    In 1878 King published Systematic Geology, numbered Volume 1 of the Report of the Geological Exploration of the Fortieth Parallel, although it appeared later than all but one of the other seven volumes. In this work he narrated the geological history of the West as a mixture of uniformitarianism and catastrophism.[17] This book was well received at the time and has been called “one of the great scientific works of the late nineteenth century.”[18]

    In 1879, the US Congress consolidated the number of geological surveys exploring the American West and created the United States Geological Survey.[19] King was chosen as its first director. He took the position with the understanding that it would be temporary, and he resigned after twenty months, having overseen the organization of the new agency with an emphasis on mining geology. He named John Wesley Powell as his successor.[20]

    During the remaining years of his life King withdrew from the scientific community and attempted to profit from his knowledge of mining geology, but the mining ventures he got involved in were not successful enough to support his expensive tastes in art collecting, travel, and elegant living, and he went heavily into debt. He had a busy social life, with close friendships including Henry Brooks Adams and John Hay, who admired him tremendously. But he suffered from physical ailments and depression.[21]

    Common law marriage and passing as African-American[edit]
    King spent his last thirteen years leading a double life. In 1887 or 1888, he met and fell in love with Ada Copeland, an African-American nursemaid (and former slave) from Georgia, who had moved to New York City in the mid-1880s. As miscegenation was strongly discouraged in the nineteenth century (and illegal in many places), King hid his identity from Copeland. Despite his blue eyes and fair complexion, King convinced Copeland that he was an African-American Pullman porter named James Todd. The two entered into a common law marriage in 1888. Throughout the marriage, King never revealed his true identity to Ada, pretending to be Todd, a black railroad worker, when at home, and continuing to work as King, a white geologist, when in the field. Their union produced five children, four of whom survived to adulthood. Their two daughters married white men; their two sons served classified as blacks during World War I.[22] King finally revealed his true identity to Copeland in a letter he wrote to her while on his deathbed in Arizona.[23]

    How is gender a social construct? As far as I understand, I believe gender is something we are born knowing and you can either accept what you are or not, but you are that regardless how you think or feel.

    “How is gender a social construct? As far as I understand, I believe gender is something we are born knowing and you can either accept what you are or not, but you are that regardless how you think or feel.”

    That’s sex, which is pure biology. Gender is how that plays out in any given society. It’s pretty messed up that really not liking certain gender roles is taken as changing biological reality. There are more rational ways of responding to that.

    “Oh, maybe gender roles are socially constructed”. (I’m fine with acknowledging the possibility, so long as that’s not taken as support for the idea that that automatically means they all must be broken. The rule about not defecating in urinals is a social construct. Most people are okay with it. It’s not enough to show that something is a construct; you actually have to make a separate argument.)

    “Hey, maybe I’m an outlier.”

There were 94,291 housing units at an average density of 1,591.4 per square mile (614.4/km2). The racial makeup of the city was 86.7% White, 2.3% African American, 2.0% Native American, 2.6% Asian, and 0.6% Pacific Islander, along with 1.3% from other races and 4.6% from two or more races. Hispanics and Latinos of any race were 5.0% of the population.[2]

    SEX is to GENDER as ANCESTRY is to RACE

    Sex is based on genetics (who your biological parents were), but gender is a social construct - you are assigned a gender based on your phenotype (physical expression of your genes).

    Ancestry is based on who your biological parents were (your genetics), but race is a social construct - you are assigned a race based on your phenotype (physical expression of your ancestral lineage).

    That's the best I could do on short notice. Maybe a better wordsmith can come up with something else. I do think RACE needs to parallel with GENDER and not SEX for this to work, though.

As Roth wrote in the novel, Silk chose “to take the future into his own hands rather than to leave it to an unenlightened society to determine his fate”.[2]

    I worked with a girl like that once. She claimed to be black, but was as pale as snow, auburn hair, green eyes. But she constantly dated black chicks, when she dated at all, which was rarely.

    She was the biggest anti-racist troll in the NGO where she worked. She was vicious and eventually moved the whole enterprise off its mission statement and into "environmental racism." Which meant whoring for certain foundation $$$$.

    One of her colleagues made the mistake of asking her in a casual gathering of program staff whether, since she asserted that all humans came out of Africa, everyone wasn't an African-American. Where was the boundary? Was it a matter of definition, or of essence? If the latter, what would it take? X percent of genome? Y number of ancestors? Back how many generations?

    That colleague was written up as "producing a threatening/unsafe environment" (or whatever the PC term was) and was asked to resign about three weeks later.

    I don't know how much money is in this today, but this is the direction they were headed at the time.

    This whole thing about race and sex is spinning out of control as the permutations keep multiplying. I saw a classic case about 15 years ago at the wedding reception of my wife's Jamaican friend. The bride was mixed race with a black mother, had never made any reference to her race, and was marrying a white guy, but what got me curious was one of the couples at the reception.
    They were both mixed race Jamaicans; she looked like a not quite as good looking Vanessa Williams and he looked like a younger Eric Holder. They had brought their toddler with them and thanks to the random miracle of recessive genes this kid looked like he had just been lifted out of an orphanage in Reykjavik. Straight, ash blond hair, pale blue eyes, white skin and, as far as you can tell with a 2 year old's pudgy face, Caucasian lips and nose.
    I have wondered to this day what the kid's life has been like. His biological parents would readily be classified as Black in the US, but physically he would be welcomed with open arms into the SS. So what does he call himself racially? Does he identify as Black and then have to continually prove it? If he applied for college as an affirmative action admission would he have to bring his birth certificate and photos of his parents? What would happen if he tried to hang down in the 'hood with his posse? Did he end up making this commercial?: www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCK0WsH0wKE
    Maybe since Jamaicans in SoCal tend to be middle class professionals like his parents, he grew up in an environment where the issue rarely came up.

    I know a Haitian guy like that. He grows out a big Afro and poses as Mandingo, proud black man and all that. Then when summer comes he shaves it off and he’s just a white guy with a buzz. In Haiti they’d kick his white ass. He’d never be able to get away with such shizzle.

  136. Rachel is a social construct.

  137. Hypodescent is a funny rule I have seen many blacks (on social media only, mind you) argue that people who are clearly majority white are “black” because in the past, the one-drop rule relegated all people with any African ancestry to a life as “black” and thus today, just because someone like, say, Malcom Gladwell may be 75% white, they aren’t gonna let white people suddenly switch the rules and accept the exceptional people with some African descent as “white”.

    However how far does it go? Does someone with 2% Sub Saharan African ancestry get to be black? Is curly hair the cutoff point? Many people seem to have light skin, eyes, hair, and more European facial features while still maintaining relatively curly hair. Once that’s gone, maybe that’s it for your hypodescent?

    For one thing, how much do blacks want to act white?

    As far as I can tell, blacks, on the whole, have a blast being black.

    They not only like being black, they like to talk about being black with other blacks. They have one of the more homogeneous cultures in the world, in part because they are constantly discussing being black with each other

    Try and imagine the media doing all of this to someone with overwhelmingly black ancestry who was trying to pass as white. Or a Jew in the Catholic Church. Etc.

    It’s funny, when you see her early pictures, wedding pictures, pictures of her parents, she seems like typical lower-class white (even apart from her father’s arm tattoo). And when you view the recent video of her as bi-racial, knowing she’s really white, she stills seems lower-class white and not too articulate. But if you view the recent video of her and think of her as bi-racial, she then seems articulate and smart and you wonder if she graduated from Wellesley or Mount Holyoke.

    In following the links above, I have been exposed to the wider PC Orwellian "explanation" as to why transsexual is great but transracial is fraudulent. They claim that it is because people are identifying with the supposed social construct of gender (as opposed to sex), which is not based on immutable traits, but is instead taught by society. They also claim that race is immutable- paging Charles Murray.

    Well if that's true, then why the pronoun game?

    That only makes sense if Caitlyn Jenner is still universally referred to as "he". Or, if the pronouns are only assigned by how well someone adheres to socially taught gender norms, then all ugly, middle-aged women with short haircuts and wear trousers should now be referred to as "he".

    Secondly, that explanation fails to address genital mutilation and even retroactively changing ones sex on a birth certificate. The birth certificate has nothing to do with societal norms. It is simply describing the events as they unfolded. If trans is really only about "gender" from a standpoint of feminine or masculine accepted behaviors, then sex-changes are (as they have always been) an evil lie and a disservice to the doctor and patient alike.

    The rabbit hole is deep, my friend.

    This whole thing about race and sex is spinning out of control as the permutations keep multiplying. I saw a classic case about 15 years ago at the wedding reception of my wife's Jamaican friend. The bride was mixed race with a black mother, had never made any reference to her race, and was marrying a white guy, but what got me curious was one of the couples at the reception.
    They were both mixed race Jamaicans; she looked like a not quite as good looking Vanessa Williams and he looked like a younger Eric Holder. They had brought their toddler with them and thanks to the random miracle of recessive genes this kid looked like he had just been lifted out of an orphanage in Reykjavik. Straight, ash blond hair, pale blue eyes, white skin and, as far as you can tell with a 2 year old's pudgy face, Caucasian lips and nose.
    I have wondered to this day what the kid's life has been like. His biological parents would readily be classified as Black in the US, but physically he would be welcomed with open arms into the SS. So what does he call himself racially? Does he identify as Black and then have to continually prove it? If he applied for college as an affirmative action admission would he have to bring his birth certificate and photos of his parents? What would happen if he tried to hang down in the 'hood with his posse? Did he end up making this commercial?: www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCK0WsH0wKE
    Maybe since Jamaicans in SoCal tend to be middle class professionals like his parents, he grew up in an environment where the issue rarely came up.

    Apparently, Eric Holder and his parents’ family were considered white-ish in Barbados, where the blacks are black.

    Without knowing her family's history it's hard to tell. However her parents say they are of German,Czech and Swedish ethnicity. These groups didn't migrate much to the South (except Texas) where blacks are in high abundance.

    “Hawaiian” was used of a particular black trumpeter who played with white jazz bands. “Albino Red” was a white who played with a black band. I still giggle at the thought of it.

    It’s interesting that Ms. Dölęžåł didn’t take the step of affecting a black accent (judging from that news clip today). I don’t know what to make of that…
     
    Accents are funky; what may sound absolutely authentic to one person sounds absolutely fake to another, and there is seeming no rhyme or reason over who accepts what as fake or real. The actor Michael Caine likes to say in interviews that when he does an American accent, Americans think he's brilliant and spot on and give him awards, while British critics trash him and say he sounds fake. In the same neighborhood of like how lefties get all hot and bothered over that old McDonald ad (discussed on here a few days ago) while blacks didn't see anything condescending or wrong with it (at the time).

    I'd like to hear more of her speeches and public talks. She may have gone very subtle into character and, like most black leaders today, and changed her accent with the audience, i.e. gone more "ghetto" when in front of majority-black audiences , but fixed up herself to sound educated in front of other audiences.

    My dad, a shakespearean actor from the midwest, used to say that Roger Moore had a phony English accent.

    The hair was crucial here in large part because Rachel Dolezal was trying to pass as a black person with light skin. If she had kept her hair like this and just waved her Africana Studies curriculum around, people weren’t gonna buy that.

    Note the disgusting attempt to argue that hair is the essence of race. Is the womb the essence of womanhood? Are Trans-women somehow “not women” because they were born without female organs?

    Now, Rachel Dolezal is not the first white woman to get box braids, ALTHOUGH SHE SHOULD PROBABLY BE THE LAST. The fun thing about Rachel’s hair journey is that she experiments with her looks.

    How can this be tolerated? Would any Cis-Woman dare critique Caitlyn Jenner’s trimming of her Adam’s Apple?

    Grey Owl (or Wa-sha-quon-asin, from the Ojibwe wenjiganooshiinh, meaning "great horned owl" or "great grey owl") was the name Archibald Belaney (September 18, 1888 – April 13, 1938) adopted when he took on a First Nations identity as an adult. Born in England as Archibald Stansfeld Belaney, and migrating to Canada in the first decade of the 20th century, he rose to prominence as a notable author, lecturer, and one of the "most effective apostles of the wilderness".[1] In his experiences with the Ojibwe Indians, Belaney learned the Aboriginal harvesting techniques, trapping, and Ojibwe culture. The pivotal moment of departure for Grey Owl's early conservation work was when he began his relationship with a young Iroquois girl named Gertrude Bernard, who assisted in his transition from trapper to conservationist.[2]

    In working with the National Parks Branch, Grey Owl gained recognition and fame in his early career as a conservationist, becoming the subject of many films, and being established as the “‘caretaker of park animals’ at Riding Mountain National Park in Manitoba” in 1931.[3] Together with his numerous articles, books, films and lectures, his views on conservation reached audiences beyond the borders of Canada, challenging people to re-evaluate their relationship with nature. His conservation views largely focused on humans' negative impact on nature through their commodification of nature's resources for profits, and a need for humans to develop a respect for the natural world.[4]

    Revelation of his British origins after his death adversely affected Grey Owl's reputation for some time. Since the 1970s and, with the centennial of his birth, there has been renewed public appreciation for his conservation efforts. Recognition has included biographies, a historic plaque at his birthplace, and a 1999 biopic about his life by the director Richard Attenborough.

    I've been killing time by skimming through some of the stories on her - she sounds truly pathological. She has apparently faked a number of hate crimes against herself:

    Spokane police files on Dolezal’s report that she received a hate mail package and other mailing in late February and March were released. Police records say the initial package Dolezal reported receiving did not bear a date stamp or bar code, which Dolezal herself told police when she reported it. Investigators interviewed postal workers, who said it was either very unlikely or impossible that the package could have been processed through the post office, and that the only other alternative was that it had been put there by someone with a key.

     


    Neumaier said he was suspicious of several incidents Dolezal reported in Coeur d’Alene, including her discovery of a swastika on the door of the Human Rights Education Institute when the organization’s security camera was “mysteriously turned off.”

    “None of them passed the smell test,” he said.
     

    “In all of these incidents (she reported in Coeur d’Alene), she was the sole witness to events that, when put under scrutiny, don’t hold up,” he said.

    Well, we don't know that she has Amerind ancestry.


    And Black claims to Amerind ancestry are just about as dubious as White claims to Amerind ancestry:

    CEU = Utah Whites, and YRI = Yoruba. They should be familiar from the previous versions of the HapMap. MEX = Mexican Americans from Los Angeles. K = 3, three ancestral populations. So what’s ASW? “African ancestry in Southwest USA.” I was struck by the high proportion of what seems to be Native American ancestry in some of the African Americans. This is a controversial aspect of scientific genealogy, as most researchers have found far less Native American ancestry within the African American population that had been the expectation within the community (Henry Louise Gates Jr. had to face criticism and skepticism when reporting this result from the black public). These results would conflict with that. But here’s the fine print on this sample. All you really need to know is this: “Principal Investigator for Community Engagement and Sample Collection: Morris Foster, University of Oklahoma, Norman, Oklahoma.” Oklahoma used to be called “Indian country,” and most Americans are aware that whites and blacks in this part of the country have more than the usual fraction of indigenous ancestry. Just something to keep in mind when encountering results that come out of HapMap3 populations.

    Dolezal’s final thesis was a series of paintings presented from the perspective of a black man and the late Dean Tritobia Benjamin, a formidable scholar whose specialty was black women in the arts, wanted to know how Dolezal felt qualified to tell this type of story as a white woman.

    “Her thesis presented an inner journey of what goes on inside the mind of a black male,” he said. “This was ten years ago but I still remember one was a three dimensional piece of a man was being consumed by a fire all the way into the ground. The rest of her work were two dimensional paintings.”

    Note how the “expert” attempts to attack her ability to understand the mind of a Cis-Black Cis-Man.So sad.

    And then there’s this:

    Dolezal’s reverse passing—new term! new term!—would not have been tolerated at Howard, says our source along with another Howard graduate named Shannon Washington, who took a class with Dolezal in the early aughts. Besides, Dolezal looked white back then.

    “She had straight, blonde hair,” he said.

    “She didn’t look the way she looks now at all in school, that’s why when I initially saw the story I didn’t recognize her!” Washington told Jezebel. “She looks about three shades darker.”

    Howard was obviously not a “safe space” for her.She had to keep her true self hidden away.Every Trans-racial person understands that special kind of pain.It’s so sad to see people attempting to undermine her transition by bringing up her old, false identity.

    Whenever I read the conventional wisdom about how the solution for black misery is to send black youth a bunch of Teach for America Ivy Leaguers so that the immiserated black youth of America can learn “middle class” (i.e., white) culture, I have to wonder about the basic premises behind this widespread white assumption.

    For one thing, how much do blacks want to act white?

    As far as I can tell, blacks, on the whole, have a blast being black.

    They not only like being black, they like to talk about being black with other blacks. They have one of the more homogeneous cultures in the world, in part because they are constantly discussing being black with each other

His birth name is not Johnny Otis, his birth name is the extremely Greek sounding Ioannis Alexandres Veliotes. He had to change his name to a stereotypical African American WASP name because nobody would believe that an African American during Jim Crow would have a Greek name no matter how White looking they are. Even so-called “African Americans” who could pass for White still had the WASP names given to them by the slave owners who enslaved their Mixed Race slave ancestors.

    Really, Johnny Otis isn't black? Couldn't he be both black and Greek?

He gave lessons, I used to wonder if he refused to mentor white people.

    one gem:
    "Gender is social behaviors and presentation. There is nothing biological about gender. Gender is taught. People can be transgender because gender is a social concept, some people who are taught to be a girl or a boy based on their genitals may feel they don't align with the gender assigned to them so they transition to living as their true/preferred gender.


    Transracial is absurd because race is based on identifiable physical characteristics. Someone who simply doesn't have those characteristics cannot claim they are another race."

    This woman made up a number of “hate crimes” over the years. At some point, these people shouldn’t just be able to walk away from that with no consequences.

    The fact that her pathology carries even more bizarre manifestations–she thinks she’s black, she’s lying, and she teaches at a University for chrissakes–and the tautological limbo the NAACP has put itself under by supporting her to save face, makes this woman not only a fair, but an important element of our national dialog.

    Her efforts were met with opposition by North Idaho white supremacy groups, including the Ku Klux Klan, the Neo Nazis and the Aryan Nations, and at least eight documented hate crimes targeted Doležal and her children during her residency in North Idaho.

    I've been killing time by skimming through some of the stories on her - she sounds truly pathological. She has apparently faked a number of hate crimes against herself:

    Spokane police files on Dolezal’s report that she received a hate mail package and other mailing in late February and March were released. Police records say the initial package Dolezal reported receiving did not bear a date stamp or bar code, which Dolezal herself told police when she reported it. Investigators interviewed postal workers, who said it was either very unlikely or impossible that the package could have been processed through the post office, and that the only other alternative was that it had been put there by someone with a key.

     


    Neumaier said he was suspicious of several incidents Dolezal reported in Coeur d’Alene, including her discovery of a swastika on the door of the Human Rights Education Institute when the organization’s security camera was “mysteriously turned off.”

    “None of them passed the smell test,” he said.
     

    “In all of these incidents (she reported in Coeur d’Alene), she was the sole witness to events that, when put under scrutiny, don’t hold up,” he said.
     
    http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2015/jun/11/board-member-had-longstanding-doubts-about-truthfu/

    But no words can describe the desperate eagerness of Spokane’s media to swallow her poison. Spokane’s Liberal Elite consider Spokane hideously White and greeted her as a conquering goddess.

    You know the biggest fallacy in this kind of reasoning is that you can’t relate to a thing unless it’s “in your blood.” People can relate to anything they might want to relate to.

    Rachel Dolezal is most likely a fan of the late Johnny Otis, a Greek man who pretended to be "Black". His birth name is not Johnny Otis, his birth name is the extremely Greek sounding Ioannis Alexandres Veliotes. He had to change his name to a stereotypical African American WASP name because nobody would believe that an African American during Jim Crow would have a Greek name no matter how White looking they are. Even so-called "African Americans" who could pass for White still had the WASP names given to them by the slave owners who enslaved their Mixed Race slave ancestors.

    Really, Johnny Otis isn’t black? Couldn’t he be both black and Greek? In any case he was an unpleasant man who repeatedly stated on the air during his radio show that white people can’t sing/play the blues. He was very into black pride and talking about blackness. He gave lessons, I used to wonder if he refused to mentor white people.

    Does anyone remember the movie The Jerk? Maybe this has been mentioned already. Wikipedia says the Steve Martin character was raised in a family of blacks, but I seem to remember he also actually thought he was black, at least at first, though wikipedia doesn’t mention that.

    "Really, Johnny Otis isn’t black? Couldn’t he be both black and Greek?"

    Johnny Otis tried to pass himself off as someone who is the off spring of 2 Black parents, not as a Mulatto who has 1 parent. It would have made zero sense for him to keep his Greek name when he was trying to pass for a Black man who has no Caucasoid father at all. Greek last names are pretty much non existent among "Black" people who do not have a Greek White father. Non Latino African Americans who are the off spring of 2 Black parents tend to have either English, Scottish, or Irish last names.

    That is why you will never find anyone in the housing projects/the hood named Shaniqua Stephanopoulos for example or Trayvon Galifianakis.

    SEX is to GENDER as RACE is to [Fill.In.Blank]

    In the last century, Leftist academics taught us the difference between "sex" and "gender." One is biological, and doesn't matter at all; the other is sociological is and the *only* relevant category.

    In order to repeat the success of the sex/gender dichotomy, Leftist academics will have to invent some new vocabulary. But, it doesn't seem like they're inclined to do so--logical consistency be damned!

    SEX is to GENDER as RACE is to [Fill.In.Blank]

    SEX is to GENDER as ANCESTRY is to RACE

    Sex is based on genetics (who your biological parents were), but gender is a social construct – you are assigned a gender based on your phenotype (physical expression of your genes).

    Ancestry is based on who your biological parents were (your genetics), but race is a social construct – you are assigned a race based on your phenotype (physical expression of your ancestral lineage).

    That’s the best I could do on short notice. Maybe a better wordsmith can come up with something else. I do think RACE needs to parallel with GENDER and not SEX for this to work, though.

    There are some recent good photos with more of a profile you may want to look at before saying she could never be accepted as part black. In interviews she didn't claim her parents were black, just that some ancestors were. You can't look at someone and say they don't have any black ancestors (maybe a 50/50 grandparent). I have seen the daughters of obliviously black (though light skinned) fathers who looked no less blue eyed blonde European than this girl did when young. And her features as an grown adult would be expected to show her ancestry more. With a different hairstyle at college if she had identified as black no -one would have said a word. In women it tends to be harder to tell. Anyway this is not about her looks it is about her parents saying she isn't to discredit her.

    If a Scottish kid were adopted by Italians and raised in an Italian family, they might genuinely feel Italian as an adult. Maybe a little bit of a wonky Italian, but still, pretty Italian, and their family and friends and society at large would probably accept them as Italian. An Asian kid raised by Mexicans would probably end up with some kind of Mexican identity. But if a white kid got raised by a black family, there’s a good chance society at large would never accept them as “black,” no matter how they felt about it.

    Not-so-oddly, it’s precisely the people who argue that race is a social construct who would be first to cry foul at Dolezal.

    You’re right, you’ld have to be an Einstein to figure out that you should suck up to Hispanics to win elections in Florida, my mistake!
     
    JEB has gone above and beyond mere "sucking up," dear fellow.Some points to bear in mind:




    “I’m bicultural—maybe that’s more important than bilingual. For those who have those kinds of marriages, appreciating the culture of your spouse is the most powerful part of the relationship. Being able to share that culture and live in it has been one of the great joys of my life. We chose Miami to live because it is a bicultural city. It’s as American as any, but it has a flair to it that is related to this bicultural feeling. I wanted my children to grow up in a bicultural way.”

    While modestly disavowing bilingualism, Jeb Bush does speak Spanish readily. (His wife, reportedly, has not become equally comfortable in English.) His three children speak both English and Spanish.

    As Jeb Bush himself notes, there is a Bush family tradition of moving away from the culture into which one is born, to plunge into another. George H.W. Bush, born to a family of Northeastern grandees, reinvented himself as Sunbelt conservative. George W. Bush, born in New Haven, Connecticut, was the only member of the next generation of Bush brothers not born in Texas, and yet became the most Texan of them all. Jeb Bush moved away first from Texas, and then from his family’s patrician identity as White Anglo-Saxon Protestants.

    “I’ve actually converted to Catholicism … I’m whatever a W-A-S-C would be. I’m a proud Catholic and a converted one, principally because this was the faith of my wife, and I wanted our children to grow up in a non-mixed marriage. So … no longer a WASP.”

    His family story and his relocation to Miami, a gateway to Latin America, have focused Jeb Bush’s attention on the topic of immigration. Listen to hours of his comments on public policy, and it quickly becomes overwhelmingly apparent that this is the public policy issue he cares about by far the most. Jeb Bush will often list three-point and four-point plans to get America moving again. But when he does so, it is the immigration point that seems almost always to energize him most.

    Jeb Bush’s enthusiasm for immigration, even when the immigrants are unskilled, even if they break the law, goes so deep that he even sometimes ventures to suggest that the personal characteristics of immigrants are to be preferred over those of the native-born. Here for example is an informal Jeb Bush speaking to a friendly interviewer, National Review’s Jay Nordlinger, early in 2014. “If we’re going to grow at 4% a year, we have to have young, aspiring people be able to create dynamic activity. And we can’t do that with our existing demographics.”

    Bush seems to have something more in mind than just the the familiar (if overstated) claim that immigration can counter the aging of the population. He seems to think that there is some quality in the immigrants themselves that is more enterprising—more dynamic to use his favorite term—than native-born Americans. This is not only a positive judgment on the immigrants themselves. It is also a negative judgment on native-born Americans.


    Both Jeb Bush and Barack Obama are men who have openly and publicly struggled with their ambivalence about their family inheritance. Both responded by leaving the place of their youth to create new identities for themselves: Barack Obama, as an organizer in the poor African-American neighborhoods of Chicago; Jeb Bush in Mexico, Venezuela, and at last in Cuban-influenced Miami. Both are men who have talked a great deal about the feeling of being “between two worlds”: Obama, in his famous autobiography; Bush, in his speeches. Both chose wives who would more deeply connect them to their new chosen identity. Both derived from their new identity a sharp critique of their nation as it is. Both have built their campaign for president upon a deep commitment to fundamental transformation of their nation into what they believe it should be.

    RE: Frum’s article on Bush,

    “I’ve actually converted to Catholicism … I’m whatever a W-A-S-C would be. I’m a proud Catholic and a converted one, principally because this was the faith of my wife, and I wanted our children to grow up in a non-mixed marriage. So … no longer a WASP.”

    I think that Frum, as a Jew, is aware of what this signifies.Mixed-marriages are cultural wars.One culture will emerge victorious in the end.In Frum’s case, it was Judaism, as his wife converted:

    "Ever since I converted to Judaism some 15 years ago, people always ask whether I miss celebrating Christmas. Indeed it’s usually the first question they ask when they discover I’m a convert. I try to repress the enthusiasm in my reply: “No–actually it’s a huge relief.”

  224. Meanwhile, as the left promotes transracialism and transgenderism, Blacks are the main ones beating up and abusing transgenderists:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1379691/Transgender-girl-beaten-seizure-McDonalds-attack-victim-hate-crime.html

    Black on trans crime is going to be a difficult one for the media to ignore for a number of reasons:

    Trans-people are more likely to be white (hetero black trans are rare) and may be attacked for being white and trans

    They draw a strong instinctive reaction out of people and Black people are more likely to act on impulse

    They are more conspicuous and vulnerable than homosexuals, who often work out and are looking increasingly masculine.

    Perhaps true, but I rather doubt you have any real data on these points. The second is particularly suspicious to me. I'm in my late 30s and have been aware of masculine-looking homosexuals for as long as I've been aware of homosexuality. If I had to guess on the basis of social trends, I would estimate homosexuals to be, if anything, increasingly effeminate. Then again, perhaps in this mixed up world we're living in the opposite could well be true.

    Jeb was elected in 1999 when hispanics were 16% of the Florida population. Even today they are around 23%. You would have thought he risked alienating more whites than any hispanics he gained by his pandering. In 1999 whites were still over 65% of the total population, and probably a much larger share of registered voters.

    Technically, "sex" is also a social construct.
    Technically, the definition of pretty much every word in every language is socially constructed, because all words just mean whatever the hell people mean when they say them.
    So "X is a social construct" is generally actually a true statement, just not a terribly meaningful one.

    We can all play with social constructions at the margins where categories bleed into each another, but I can’t very well claim that my pillow is, say, a bulldozer. Wouldn’t it be nice if being an adult meant accepting that.

    Really, Johnny Otis isn't black? Couldn't he be both black and Greek? In any case he was an unpleasant man who repeatedly stated on the air during his radio show that white people can't sing/play the blues. He was very into black pride and talking about blackness. He gave lessons, I used to wonder if he refused to mentor white people.

    Does anyone remember the movie The Jerk? Maybe this has been mentioned already. Wikipedia says the Steve Martin character was raised in a family of blacks, but I seem to remember he also actually thought he was black, at least at first, though wikipedia doesn't mention that.

    “Really, Johnny Otis isn’t black? Couldn’t he be both black and Greek?”

    Johnny Otis tried to pass himself off as someone who is the off spring of 2 Black parents, not as a Mulatto who has 1 parent. It would have made zero sense for him to keep his Greek name when he was trying to pass for a Black man who has no Caucasoid father at all. Greek last names are pretty much non existent among “Black” people who do not have a Greek White father. Non Latino African Americans who are the off spring of 2 Black parents tend to have either English, Scottish, or Irish last names.

    That is why you will never find anyone in the housing projects/the hood named Shaniqua Stephanopoulos for example or Trayvon Galifianakis.

    JEB has gone above and beyond mere “sucking up,” dear fellow.Some points to bear in mind:

    “I’m bicultural—maybe that’s more important than bilingual. For those who have those kinds of marriages, appreciating the culture of your spouse is the most powerful part of the relationship. Being able to share that culture and live in it has been one of the great joys of my life. We chose Miami to live because it is a bicultural city. It’s as American as any, but it has a flair to it that is related to this bicultural feeling. I wanted my children to grow up in a bicultural way.”

    While modestly disavowing bilingualism, Jeb Bush does speak Spanish readily. (His wife, reportedly, has not become equally comfortable in English.) His three children speak both English and Spanish.

    As Jeb Bush himself notes, there is a Bush family tradition of moving away from the culture into which one is born, to plunge into another. George H.W. Bush, born to a family of Northeastern grandees, reinvented himself as Sunbelt conservative. George W. Bush, born in New Haven, Connecticut, was the only member of the next generation of Bush brothers not born in Texas, and yet became the most Texan of them all. Jeb Bush moved away first from Texas, and then from his family’s patrician identity as White Anglo-Saxon Protestants.

    “I’ve actually converted to Catholicism … I’m whatever a W-A-S-C would be. I’m a proud Catholic and a converted one, principally because this was the faith of my wife, and I wanted our children to grow up in a non-mixed marriage. So … no longer a WASP.”

    His family story and his relocation to Miami, a gateway to Latin America, have focused Jeb Bush’s attention on the topic of immigration. Listen to hours of his comments on public policy, and it quickly becomes overwhelmingly apparent that this is the public policy issue he cares about by far the most. Jeb Bush will often list three-point and four-point plans to get America moving again. But when he does so, it is the immigration point that seems almost always to energize him most.

    Jeb Bush’s enthusiasm for immigration, even when the immigrants are unskilled, even if they break the law, goes so deep that he even sometimes ventures to suggest that the personal characteristics of immigrants are to be preferred over those of the native-born. Here for example is an informal Jeb Bush speaking to a friendly interviewer, National Review’s Jay Nordlinger, early in 2014. “If we’re going to grow at 4% a year, we have to have young, aspiring people be able to create dynamic activity. And we can’t do that with our existing demographics.”

    Bush seems to have something more in mind than just the the familiar (if overstated) claim that immigration can counter the aging of the population. He seems to think that there is some quality in the immigrants themselves that is more enterprising—more dynamic to use his favorite term—than native-born Americans. This is not only a positive judgment on the immigrants themselves. It is also a negative judgment on native-born Americans.

    Both Jeb Bush and Barack Obama are men who have openly and publicly struggled with their ambivalence about their family inheritance. Both responded by leaving the place of their youth to create new identities for themselves: Barack Obama, as an organizer in the poor African-American neighborhoods of Chicago; Jeb Bush in Mexico, Venezuela, and at last in Cuban-influenced Miami. Both are men who have talked a great deal about the feeling of being “between two worlds”: Obama, in his famous autobiography; Bush, in his speeches. Both chose wives who would more deeply connect them to their new chosen identity. Both derived from their new identity a sharp critique of their nation as it is. Both have built their campaign for president upon a deep commitment to fundamental transformation of their nation into what they believe it should be.

    I used to know someone who was, if not transracial, very close to it. Sometimes people just really connect to someone of a different race and the desire to be like them gets very strong. They were... really annoying about it. But they were kind of annoying about everything.

    If a Scottish kid were adopted by Italians and raised in an Italian family, they might genuinely feel Italian as an adult. Maybe a little bit of a wonky Italian, but still, pretty Italian, and their family and friends and society at large would probably accept them as Italian. An Asian kid raised by Mexicans would probably end up with some kind of Mexican identity. But if a white kid got raised by a black family, there's a good chance society at large would never accept them as "black," no matter how they felt about it.

    Not-so-oddly, it's precisely the people who argue that race is a social construct who would be first to cry foul at Dolezal. I don't give a shit; if she's happier as a black person, that's her business, just like Micheal Jackson was happier as a white person and Iron Eyes Cody preferred being an Indian to being Sicilian.

    “If a Scottish kid were adopted by Italians and raised in an Italian family, they might genuinely feel Italian as an adult. Maybe a little bit of a wonky Italian, but still, pretty Italian, and their family and friends and society at large would probably accept them as Italian”

    Ray Liotta is a Scottish guy who was adopted by Italian parents. I used to think Ray was an ethnic Italian because of his last name. Snooki is also not ethnically Italian but was adopted by Italian parents. The difference between her and Ray Liotta is I never once thought Snooki was Italian. When I first saw her on Jersey Shore, I asked myself why did they cast a Mexican chick on a show about Italian Guidos.

    Ray Liotta definitely looks more passable as an Italian than Snooki does. Snooki looks like a Mexican maid or nanny.

    That's definitely true, and yet it's the opposite that would be the most common perception. Snooki, while pushing it, could pass as the most extreme of southern Italians, but the fact that this is an extreme case seems completely lost on people. The reason is that these are the kind of Italians that are noticed, while the typical, average white Italian simply melts unremarked into whatever white crowd is at hand (except a crowd exclusively consisting of WASP types, which was once synonymous with "white" itself, but which facts-on-the-ground have apparently forever altered). The same should hold true for all southern Europeans, but in my experience it's far and away Italians with whom this perceptual phenomenon occurs. I think that's why all manner of quasi-Mediterranid types claim "Italian" when inventing an alternate identity for themselves vastly more often than claiming, say, Spanish or Greek.

    Miami Steve van Zandt is 100% Italian and was adopted by a Dutch-surnamed family. (Don't know which century they arrived here.)

    Bruce Springsteen is 50% Italian, and twice as Italian as anything else. The first Springsteen came in the 17th century, and Grandpa Springsteen didn't have much Dutch as such.

Now if this lady had some kind of whole-body racial skin graft (imagine it’s possible) or had taken some similar drastic measure to irreversibly alter her appearance, then leftists would be betraying their principles by denying her.

    Oh, I see, you're just trolling us. You got me to seriously respond once. Touche, I guess.

    There are some recent good photos with more of a profile you may want to look at before saying she could never be accepted as part black. In interviews she didn’t claim her parents were black, just that some ancestors were. You can’t look at someone and say they don’t have any black ancestors (maybe a 50/50 grandparent). I have seen the daughters of obliviously black (though light skinned) fathers who looked no less blue eyed blonde European than this girl did when young. And her features as an grown adult would be expected to show her ancestry more. With a different hairstyle at college if she had identified as black no -one would have said a word. In women it tends to be harder to tell. Anyway this is not about her looks it is about her parents saying she isn’t to discredit her.

    True enough, but in my opinion it's high time people began having a word to say. In this day and age it's outrageous that someone who looks like Mariah Carey and someone who looks like - I don't know - Robert Mugabe can both be equally "black." This should hold even if one accepts modern day left/liberal delusions about race, but it's doubly the case for anyone concerned about white interests. It's imperative that those of us who do care about white racial interests begin to use the fact that, regardless of they say in public and regardless of their appearance or ancestry, most people deep down do not wish to be associated with blackness.

    Is that "harsh"? Is it "unfair"? Who knows. What I do know is that if reality comes down to society, be it locally or globally, having either a pro-black orientation - empathizing with blacks, taking the black side of whatever dispute, saying things that make blacks look good or like victims - or a pro-white orientation - empathizing with whites, trying to associate themselves with whiteness racially and culturally - then it's better for whites and, indirectly, humanity as a whole for there to be a pro-white orientation.

    There are some recent good photos with more of a profile you may want to look at before saying she could never be accepted as part black. In interviews she didn't claim her parents were black, just that some ancestors were. You can't look at someone and say they don't have any black ancestors (maybe a 50/50 grandparent). I have seen the daughters of obliviously black (though light skinned) fathers who looked no less blue eyed blonde European than this girl did when young. And her features as an grown adult would be expected to show her ancestry more. With a different hairstyle at college if she had identified as black no -one would have said a word. In women it tends to be harder to tell. Anyway this is not about her looks it is about her parents saying she isn't to discredit her.

    With a different hairstyle at college if she had identified as black no -one would have said a word.

    True enough, but in my opinion it’s high time people began having a word to say. In this day and age it’s outrageous that someone who looks like Mariah Carey and someone who looks like – I don’t know – Robert Mugabe can both be equally “black.” This should hold even if one accepts modern day left/liberal delusions about race, but it’s doubly the case for anyone concerned about white interests. It’s imperative that those of us who do care about white racial interests begin to use the fact that, regardless of they say in public and regardless of their appearance or ancestry, most people deep down do not wish to be associated with blackness.

    Is that “harsh”? Is it “unfair”? Who knows. What I do know is that if reality comes down to society, be it locally or globally, having either a pro-black orientation – empathizing with blacks, taking the black side of whatever dispute, saying things that make blacks look good or like victims – or a pro-white orientation – empathizing with whites, trying to associate themselves with whiteness racially and culturally – then it’s better for whites and, indirectly, humanity as a whole for there to be a pro-white orientation.

    Meanwhile, as the left promotes transracialism and transgenderism, Blacks are the main ones beating up and abusing transgenderists:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1379691/Transgender-girl-beaten-seizure-McDonalds-attack-victim-hate-crime.html

    Black on trans crime is going to be a difficult one for the media to ignore for a number of reasons:

    Trans-people are more likely to be white (hetero black trans are rare) and may be attacked for being white and trans

    They draw a strong instinctive reaction out of people and Black people are more likely to act on impulse

    They are more conspicuous and vulnerable than homosexuals, who often work out and are looking increasingly masculine.

    Trans-people are more likely to be white (hetero black trans are rare) and may be attacked for being white and trans.

    They are more conspicuous and vulnerable than homosexuals, who often work out and are looking increasingly masculine.

    Perhaps true, but I rather doubt you have any real data on these points. The second is particularly suspicious to me. I’m in my late 30s and have been aware of masculine-looking homosexuals for as long as I’ve been aware of homosexuality. If I had to guess on the basis of social trends, I would estimate homosexuals to be, if anything, increasingly effeminate. Then again, perhaps in this mixed up world we’re living in the opposite could well be true.

    I'm making this assumption based on studies indicating heterosexual transsexuals/cross-dressers have above average education levels and white transsexuals are much more likely to experience sexual arousal from cross dressing than black transsexuals. This suggests there aren't many heterosexual black transsexuals, but I admit it's only an educated guess.

    Also Bruce Jenner-sized guys aren't the male to female transgender norm (at least not in public anyway). A lightly build guy in women's clothing who can almost pass for a women is more vulnerable than a regular gay guy in trainers and men's clothing. Especially if his muscles have withered away on hormones. I once talked with a former London policeman who said traditional laws against men dressing as females in public were there to stop guys who thought they could just about pass as women from going out in women's clothing and getting the crap beaten out of them. Something the LGBT movement probably hasn't considered.

    Clothing is a very important consideration from a self-defense perspective. Feminine clothing like high pumps and skirts and formal men's clothing such as open jackets, stiff leather shoes and ties are a disaster in a self-defense situation. You can't fight as you will easily be pulled over or pushed to the ground, and you can't run away quickly.

    Responding to crap like that is basically kicking puppies.

    The hell it is. The idea that gender has no necessary relation to sexual reality is completely insane, but it’s pretty much the ruling paradigm. Kicking puppies may be cruel, but puppies are powerless to stop you. Not so the loons who hold our fate in their hands.

    She is in a legal dispute with her parents, and that is why they are discrediting her. She quite possibly does have black ancestors, given that mom and dad don't deny her Native American ancestry, which in a past era may well have been a proxy for blacks. She apparently declined to describe herself as African American to journalists. I don't think it says anywhere that NAACP members need a particular level of black ancestry, or any at all.

    I don’t think it says anywhere that NAACP members need a particular level of black ancestry, or any at all.

    He also sat on the board of the Union for Reform Judaism, but that was a completely unrelated activity.

    You’re right, you’ld have to be an Einstein to figure out that you should suck up to Hispanics to win elections in Florida, my mistake!
     
    JEB has gone above and beyond mere "sucking up," dear fellow.Some points to bear in mind:




    “I’m bicultural—maybe that’s more important than bilingual. For those who have those kinds of marriages, appreciating the culture of your spouse is the most powerful part of the relationship. Being able to share that culture and live in it has been one of the great joys of my life. We chose Miami to live because it is a bicultural city. It’s as American as any, but it has a flair to it that is related to this bicultural feeling. I wanted my children to grow up in a bicultural way.”

    While modestly disavowing bilingualism, Jeb Bush does speak Spanish readily. (His wife, reportedly, has not become equally comfortable in English.) His three children speak both English and Spanish.

    As Jeb Bush himself notes, there is a Bush family tradition of moving away from the culture into which one is born, to plunge into another. George H.W. Bush, born to a family of Northeastern grandees, reinvented himself as Sunbelt conservative. George W. Bush, born in New Haven, Connecticut, was the only member of the next generation of Bush brothers not born in Texas, and yet became the most Texan of them all. Jeb Bush moved away first from Texas, and then from his family’s patrician identity as White Anglo-Saxon Protestants.

    “I’ve actually converted to Catholicism … I’m whatever a W-A-S-C would be. I’m a proud Catholic and a converted one, principally because this was the faith of my wife, and I wanted our children to grow up in a non-mixed marriage. So … no longer a WASP.”

    His family story and his relocation to Miami, a gateway to Latin America, have focused Jeb Bush’s attention on the topic of immigration. Listen to hours of his comments on public policy, and it quickly becomes overwhelmingly apparent that this is the public policy issue he cares about by far the most. Jeb Bush will often list three-point and four-point plans to get America moving again. But when he does so, it is the immigration point that seems almost always to energize him most.

    Jeb Bush’s enthusiasm for immigration, even when the immigrants are unskilled, even if they break the law, goes so deep that he even sometimes ventures to suggest that the personal characteristics of immigrants are to be preferred over those of the native-born. Here for example is an informal Jeb Bush speaking to a friendly interviewer, National Review’s Jay Nordlinger, early in 2014. “If we’re going to grow at 4% a year, we have to have young, aspiring people be able to create dynamic activity. And we can’t do that with our existing demographics.”

    Bush seems to have something more in mind than just the the familiar (if overstated) claim that immigration can counter the aging of the population. He seems to think that there is some quality in the immigrants themselves that is more enterprising—more dynamic to use his favorite term—than native-born Americans. This is not only a positive judgment on the immigrants themselves. It is also a negative judgment on native-born Americans.


    Both Jeb Bush and Barack Obama are men who have openly and publicly struggled with their ambivalence about their family inheritance. Both responded by leaving the place of their youth to create new identities for themselves: Barack Obama, as an organizer in the poor African-American neighborhoods of Chicago; Jeb Bush in Mexico, Venezuela, and at last in Cuban-influenced Miami. Both are men who have talked a great deal about the feeling of being “between two worlds”: Obama, in his famous autobiography; Bush, in his speeches. Both chose wives who would more deeply connect them to their new chosen identity. Both derived from their new identity a sharp critique of their nation as it is. Both have built their campaign for president upon a deep commitment to fundamental transformation of their nation into what they believe it should be.

    RE: Frum’s article on Bush,

    This strikes me as a key quote:

    “I’ve actually converted to Catholicism … I’m whatever a W-A-S-C would be. I’m a proud Catholic and a converted one, principally because this was the faith of my wife, and I wanted our children to grow up in a non-mixed marriage. So … no longer a WASP.”

    I think that Frum, as a Jew, is aware of what this signifies.Mixed-marriages are cultural wars.One culture will emerge victorious in the end.In Frum’s case, it was Judaism, as his wife converted:

    "Ever since I converted to Judaism some 15 years ago, people always ask whether I miss celebrating Christmas. Indeed it’s usually the first question they ask when they discover I’m a convert. I try to repress the enthusiasm in my reply: “No–actually it’s a huge relief.”

Then you deny that it was because you looked at a picture, which leads me to the conclusion that your insistence upon said gentleman being white, is that you had the opportunity, at some point, to measure his dong with a ruler.

    Where in what I have written can one infer anything about "fear" or "homosexuals"?

  257. What’s truly sad in all this is how Rachel’s family is not supporting her transition:

    Rachel Dolezal’s adopted brother Ezra told Buzzfeed News that his sister warned him not to out her as white when she moved to Spokane. “She just told me, ‘Over here, I’m going to be considered black, and I have a black father. Don’t blow my cover,’” Ezra said.

    Dolezal left Montana—and her parents—for Spokane in 2012. “She wanted to make a new life for herself but she took it to the ultimate extreme,” Ezra—who identified himself as “25 percent black” to the Washington Post—said. “Not only did she move out to Spokane, but she created a whole new identity for herself.”

    “She puts dark makeup on her face and says she black,” he told Buzzfeed. “It’s basically blackface.”

    Ezra also offered an explanation for Rachel’s apparently intimate knowledge of black women’s hair. “My younger sister Esther is fully African-American and Rachel used to do her hair a lot. She really enjoyed it, so she already knew a lot about hair products and started applying them to herself,” he said.

    I can't believe that two posters -- here, of all places -- are going to get into a contest over whether or not they are homophobic.

    I don't think "butthurt" has any homosexual connotation, much less shopping for shoes. The latter has a connotation of effeminate triviality, but not particularly gay. "Butthurt" is of a class with a lot of words and expressions like "red ass" or "having a feather up one's ass", etc. that I have used for decades to describe someone who is upset and/or outraged in a comic way. Believe it or not there is a large lexicon pertaining to the human posterior that has nothing to do with anal sex, not even in a derivative way.

    Actually, "butthurt", if it reminds me of anything, is a spanking, or possibly an analogue to the old expression, "mad as a wet hen." Even if the word had a sexual connotation (that is, "butthurt") it certainly isn't used that way. "Suck" for example definitely had a sexual connotation fifty years ago, nowadays, however, it's the go to term for negative evaluation. (Whether this goes originally to oral-genital, oral-anal, thumb sucking, breast feeding, or whatever back in the 19th Century is still under investigation.)

    So, I finally ran an image search for “Rachel Dolezal.” OMG. She looks like…a white chick with a perm, a dye job, and a tan. She doesn’t look like she has any black ancestry at all. She doesn’t look “exotic,” either. That’s just her odd makeup.

    First thing that springs to mind is that she didn’t stand out enough to be called out, because there are a lot of barely-blacks out there playing up their blackness for the bennies. You can’t go around telling the obvious ofays they aren’t black, because the almost-obvious-ofays give them a lot of cover.

    The actor Michael Caine likes to say in interviews that when he does an American accent, Americans think he’s brilliant and spot on and give him awards, while British critics trash him and say he sounds fake. In the same neighborhood of like how lefties get all hot and bothered over that old McDonald ad (discussed on here a few days ago) while blacks didn’t see anything condescending or wrong with it (at the time).

    Apropos of nothing, but I think Langley Kirkwood did a great job as the head evil Judge in Dredd. Took me a few minutes watching him as Captain Bryson in Black Sails to realize he’s the same guy. Never would have guessed he’s English. I was already impressed with how much he did with a few minutes in that film, using 1/3 of his face, and I thought he was an American. Can’t comment on Caine, though; can’t ever recall him trying an American accent.

    No kidding, I was on several ancestry website forums after I got my DNA results. The vast majority of people were looking for NA DNA. It was a rather comical and sad occurrence when people would post about how disappointed they were in their “results” because the results showed no NA DNA.

    What I find funny is White as mayonnaise Gringos claiming Native Amerindian ancestry, yet you have Mexicans for example who quite clearly have Native Indigenous Amerindian judging by their phenotypes, yet they want nothing to do with wanting to claim an Indigenous Native identity. White Gringos romanticize Native Indigenous Amerindian culture more than Mexicans do and Mexicans have way more Amerindian DNA and facial features than the White Gringos.

  269. This Rachel was born in the wrong time and place. Had she lived in 19th century New Orleans she could have hung out at the Quadroon Balls.

    "If a Scottish kid were adopted by Italians and raised in an Italian family, they might genuinely feel Italian as an adult. Maybe a little bit of a wonky Italian, but still, pretty Italian, and their family and friends and society at large would probably accept them as Italian"

    Ray Liotta is a Scottish guy who was adopted by Italian parents. I used to think Ray was an ethnic Italian because of his last name. Snooki is also not ethnically Italian but was adopted by Italian parents. The difference between her and Ray Liotta is I never once thought Snooki was Italian. When I first saw her on Jersey Shore, I asked myself why did they cast a Mexican chick on a show about Italian Guidos.

    Ray Liotta definitely looks more passable as an Italian than Snooki does. Snooki looks like a Mexican maid or nanny.

    Miami Steve van Zandt is 100% Italian and was adopted by a Dutch-surnamed family. (Don’t know which century they arrived here.)

    Bruce Springsteen is 50% Italian, and twice as Italian as anything else. The first Springsteen came in the 17th century, and Grandpa Springsteen didn’t have much Dutch as such.

    This 75%-Italian partnership wrote songs together for Southside Johnny. They looked like Rotterdam on paper but more like Naples in person.

    Thee are an awful lot of italo-scozzeti, most of them mixed. Several are notable in entertainment or sports; you may have heard of some of them.

    My favorite is Junior Campbell (Cancellari) who co-wrote the catchy songs for Thomas the Tank Engine and, like Dick Dale and Jimmy Cliff, is a lefty who plays a mean upside-down guitar.

    There are also Italian Welsh, e.g., Victor Spinetti of A Hard Day’s Night

    The late Sir Christopher Lee descended from Italian nobility.

    First thing that springs to mind is that she didn't stand out enough to be called out, because there are a lot of barely-blacks out there playing up their blackness for the bennies. You can't go around telling the obvious ofays they aren't black, because the almost-obvious-ofays give them a lot of cover.


    The actor Michael Caine likes to say in interviews that when he does an American accent, Americans think he’s brilliant and spot on and give him awards, while British critics trash him and say he sounds fake. In the same neighborhood of like how lefties get all hot and bothered over that old McDonald ad (discussed on here a few days ago) while blacks didn’t see anything condescending or wrong with it (at the time).

    Rachel should have tried to pass herself off as a "Czech" of Roma Gypsy ancestry. But than again pretending to be a Gypsy in America would not get her anywhere near as many affirmative action goodies as pretending to be Black. Gypsies are pretty much an invisible minority group in America outside of fortune tellers.

    I absolutely love the part where the author sees no incongruence between the statement “Race is a social construct” and her definition of lighter-skinned blacks as “more genetically White”.

    Not, according to the author, more genetically deposed to posses a lighter skin pigmentation, but rather “more genetically White”. That is, she is defining “White” as a proper noun that is determined by genetics.

    For the second time in is many threads, my friend, your Butthurt*, emotional response has done nothing to advance the conversation.

    On the previous thread, you insist that you know more than geneticists about genetics, ostensibly because you looked at a picture. Then you deny that it was because you looked at a picture, which leads me to the conclusion that your insistence upon said gentleman being white, is that you had the opportunity, at some point, to measure his dong with a ruler.

    Now, you accuse me of being "homophobic" on the basis of the comment below:

    This silly, feminine triviality is on its way to 300 responses?

    Lord help you guys, some of you need to start advice websites on matching handbags with shoes.

     

    Now from what I understand, the modern definition of "homophobic" is meant to imply "fear of homosexuals." Of course as Reg Ceasar has implied, it could logically mean "fear of man", but we'll assume you are going with the colloquial definition.

    Where in what I have written can one infer anything about "fear" or "homosexuals"?

    No my friend, "gay" was not the imagery I was trying to conjure, "Carrie Bradshaw" was, as this thread, to me at least brings up a vision 25 "Carries" and "Samanthas" gossiping about $400 shoes in an extremely overpriced Manhattan wine bar. Only the ones here tend to shave every morning.

    So from what I have gleaned about you, you are:

    1. An insecure white man.

    and

    2. An insecure gay man.

    I don't have a problem with either, nor do I CONCERN myself with either, and you coming out of the closet would not garner 265 comments amongst my friends. maybe it's time you and your friends started following my lead.

    * No, this is not a homosexual slur, simply a youthful colloquialism. I have never received anal sex, so if this saying is inaccurate, and this act is, in fact, always pleasurable, please feel free to expand my knowledge base.

    I can’t believe that two posters — here, of all places — are going to get into a contest over whether or not they are homophobic.

    I don’t think “butthurt” has any homosexual connotation, much less shopping for shoes. The latter has a connotation of effeminate triviality, but not particularly gay. “Butthurt” is of a class with a lot of words and expressions like “red ass” or “having a feather up one’s ass”, etc. that I have used for decades to describe someone who is upset and/or outraged in a comic way. Believe it or not there is a large lexicon pertaining to the human posterior that has nothing to do with anal sex, not even in a derivative way.

    Actually, “butthurt”, if it reminds me of anything, is a spanking, or possibly an analogue to the old expression, “mad as a wet hen.” Even if the word had a sexual connotation (that is, “butthurt”) it certainly isn’t used that way. “Suck” for example definitely had a sexual connotation fifty years ago, nowadays, however, it’s the go to term for negative evaluation. (Whether this goes originally to oral-genital, oral-anal, thumb sucking, breast feeding, or whatever back in the 19th Century is still under investigation.)
