Mauritius is an archipelago country in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

Apparently, these are sincere articles, not Hakan Rotmwrt tweets about the dubious racial provenance of Alt-Right celebrities.

In the Los Angeles Review of Books, a young lady in Mauritius complains about a young gentleman in Mauritius:

“There Is Too Much Feminism”: On the Rise of the Mauritian Alt-Right

By Ariel Saramandi

MAY 11, 2019

I HAD MUTED HIM for months on end. We weren’t close, but I knew him pretty well — we’d hung out a few times over the past decade or so, attended the same sparse cultural events. He likes to write. His gift is irony. And his social media platform of choice, like that of most Mauritians, is Facebook. He’d have diatribes at the ready on everything from poverty to politicians, crafted in his signature tone, a perpetual smirk. The smirk would give way, in the last line or so, to genuine feeling. The technique made him seem like a generally good dude, caught in the Mauritian system like everyone else but with the audacity and wit to write about it. He amassed quite the following. In 2016, he started writing posts on feminism, the kind that elicited LMAOs and general approval sans sincere twist. He irritated me, but I wasn’t worried. I thought Mauritian men were mostly like that: retrograde, patriarchal. I thought that progress was coming whether they liked it or not and that soon, in a decade or so, they’d be embarrassed by their youthful rancor. I had hope in our generation — well educated and directional, ravenous in ambition, ravenous for the world. I knew about the alt-right, but thought the word stood for “white supremacist” and little else; 99 percent of our population isn’t white; I hadn’t even entertained the notion that this European-American export had found a following here. I’d muted him and the chronology of his radicalization. …

Together with a small group of academics, writers, and translators, I have been compiling a quasi-historiography of the local alt-right. We have over 300 screenshots of their conversations, and have tracked what they say, share. We add new material almost every day.

Do you ever get the impression that a certain amount of mainstream feminist writing, such as this and Donna Zuckerberg’s book about Roosh and Heartiste, consists of:

There is this awful Alt-Right boy … whom I just can’t stop thinking about — but, but that’s because I HATE him! Stop smiling. The only reason I track everything he does and says is because he’s horrible! I loathe Mr. Darcy.

    One reason Ms. Saramandi can’t stop meeting/engaging/thinking about her innamorato is that all the white folk in Mauritius couldn’t overflow the local Tiki lounge.

    SJW whites hate to admit it, but when thrown into the mix of an overwhelming non-white society – like in American prisons – they instinctively cling to their closest kin, regardless of how infuriating he may be. Saramandi’s instincts make it impossible to avoid the dude.

  7. Young people often use practically everything as a dating vehicle, but can you blame them? Unless they are independently wealthy or in a handful of decent-paying fields, it is an impossible economy. It is brutal for all of the single people except those with children that grant them rent-covering welfare access. The best thing they can do is find a marriage partner while young, when the pool of unattached people is wider. It’s funny that they think feminism is the best way to accomplish their underlying goal. Now, a nursing degree or something practical to bring home bacon might help in this era and economy. Feminist theory is not likely to do it unless they have other talents.

  16. Altai says:

    One thing you see a lot of in Indian and places with large, unassimilated Indian diasporas is criticism of feminism. Their existing social structure is changing slowly but women are going directly into work so the pressure to earn money and social rank is suddenly even greater having to compete with women and being less attractive monetarily without the social liberalism that is at least a salve.

    My N=1 is a very distant relative by marriage, who spent two years in the US Embassy in Mauritius as a junior diplomat, when he was young and single. He said he went snorkeling or scuba diving most weekends. He said that it was a very nice place, once you got out of the crowded Indian heart of town.

    Mauritius (pop. 1.2 million) is probably much nicer than most countries surrounding the Indian Ocean, in East Africa or South Asia, because its per capita income is way higher (about $24,000/yr PPP) than any of them, making it a middle-income country.

    Right. And she hates the white dude because in her fearful, befuddled state, she imagines that if he would just shut-up then the 99 percent dusky people wouldn’t notice her whiteness, her sameness to him, and she would get along with them swimmingly.

    So, it’s not the 99% that are the source her discomfort, it’s the lousy white male who, for some inexplicable reason, doesn’t draw as much admiring attention from the men of the 99% as she does. She gets along with them just fine. They’re really sweet fellows, in fact. Until one day one of them takes her up on a rooftop, bends her over the parapet and leaves her strangled blood-soaked body to be found by a stranger.

    There’s really only one serious question here. Do the white women who enjoy the flattery and attention lavished upon them by men of color know that they are putting their boyfriends, husbands and fathers in a jam? Is it, as Game sites would have us believe, a Test? Is she offering herself up as the prize between two jousting knights? And if so, is it merely instinctual? Is she really just acting out a biological imperative over which she has no control? (which, if true, makes Feminism a stupid, cruel irony as well as a fiendish ploy) Or is she doing it out of maliciousness and spite? As revenge for what she regards as centuries of oppression?

    I’ve read you since the early 2000s, Steve, and even contributed to your dishwasher fundraiser. But you’re wrong — pathetic online womanhaters aren’t “Mr. Darcy,” and you’re drifting further and further that way. Watching this happen is like watching mold grow on something I used to appreciate. So I’m going to stop reading you. You genuinely influenced my thinking and I hope, without snark or irony, that you have a nice life. Women aren’t as vain, vacuous, one-dimensional or sex-appeal-obsessed as your experiences have apparently led you to assume. I truly hope your experiences improve. You were an irreplaceable part of the independent-thought ecosystem that long preceded the “intellectual dark web” and you obviously deserved a much larger platform. I’ll miss you. Be well.

    I lived in Mauritius for close to a year.

    I had a great time. Beaches are wonderful. Fishing is good. Weather about perfect.

    You can read the history of settlement on the Wikipedia page. The only reason we in North America ever learned of the existence of the place is because the white man exterminated the Dodo.

    The ethnic/racial groupings have produced several societies within the larger society dominated by the Hindus that came to the country as indentured servants. There is a significant muslim group, some Chinese and a small number of whites descended from the French. It is a very traditional male dominated place. Young women seem to bristle at this, but I don’t really see it changing significantly soon.

    The politics on the island are taken very seriously. It’s sort of like a typical university in that sense: the battles are so tough because the stakes are so low. (With roughly the same population size, comparing the politics in Mauritius to the current race for mayor in Dallas is interesting. Nobody cares about the weak mayor in Dallas. The race for PM in Mauritius is bloodsport.)

    (While still a colony, the Brits forcefully relocated some people off Diego Garcia and shipped them either to the main island of Mauritius or Rodriques, hence the outrage we see today.)

    It is a safe place. There are many who do business on the African continent that base out of Mauritius. Lots of white South Africans are settling there. The economy is fairly robust but exists only because it is a tax haven for the subcontinent. It is were Black Indian Rupees get turned into White Indian Rupees for reinvestment into India. Mauritius, all of 1.2MM people, is the leading outside investor in India.

    I always found it interesting, given that somewhere around 80% of the population was Hindu or Muslim, that you could get pork at the grocery store in certain neighborhoods.

    I liked the place. I was paid a nice wage according to typical U.S. standards. To the local standard, I was rich. Rich enough to attract the attention of pretty young women. Something that doesn’t happen in Dallas. So… my recollection of the place (left there 7 years ago today) may have a rose tint.

    Did he in fact go back home?

    Regardless, he took a scarce place in medical school from a deserving American native. And if he did return home, he absconded with the knowledge and training that would have otherwise belonged to an American kid and that would have likely been returned to an American community.
