Folks complaining about the Hobbits in Amazon’s Rings of Power being multiracial on the grounds that that doesn’t make any sense need to realize that most Americans today know that The Science has proven that race is just a fantasy with no biological reality to it.

You people who think that race has something to do with who your ancestors were are living in an outdated fantasy world. The Science proves that a white is less genetically similar to another white than to a black (who is the most diverse of all).

Read a book.

Genetics has disproved wrong old racist stereotypes such as that individuals tend to be more closely related to some people than to other people. What does who you are related to have to do with race, anyway? Race is just skin deep.

The Science has demonstrated that white people don’t exist. People who believe they are white are just a social construct gaslit by whiteness, which somebody ought to do something about, if you know what I mean.

The problem is that today’s audiences only like intellectual property that’s older than they are, like Lord of the Rings or Batman or Lovecraft. But everything old was written by a white man who probably didn’t have the proper indoctrination on the Whiteness Question.

I got an idea! How many years until Nation of Islam founder W.D. Fard’s pamphlet “Lost Found Muslim Lesson No. 2“–the story of the evil eugenicist Dr. Yacub inventing the devilish white race–goes into public domain? Fard disappeared in 1934, so not many can be left.

Somebody should pitch the Dr. Yacub Story to Bezos.

  1. One of my grandfathers was Irish so I must have a little Leprechaun blood. Match that, Africans!

    As for the silly dogma about African diversity, if Subsaharan Africans don’t have any Neanderthal genes doesn’t that mean they lack diversity?

    • Replies: @Hernan Pizzaro del Blanco
    @dearieme

    Sub-Saharan Africans may lack Neanderthal Ancestry but they have DNA from a different archaic hominin species that diverged before the split of modern humans and Neanderthals. https://www.sci.news/genetics/west-africans-dna-archaic-hominin-08123.html

    this may explain one reason Negroids are so different from the Caucasoid and Mongoloid races....Negroids were isolated from the other races and also contain DNA from a mystery archaic hominin species. The data suggests this introgression may have happened recently.

    @dearieme

    No, Africans win yet again, they’re up to 19% some unknown archaic species, like maybe homo habilis or homo erectus.

  3. The problem is that today’s audiences only like intellectual property that’s older than they are, like Lord of the Rings or Batman or Lovecraft. But everything old was written by a white man who probably didn’t have the proper indoctrination on the Whiteness Question.

    Today’s audiences didn’t like any recent bastardizations from those properties. It didn’t help that they were made unrecognizable.
    There’s probably good new stuff out there being excluded out of politics or caution. As seen in the tweet I recently linked, a lawsuit found that almost nobody reads anything published, and of course publishing reads nothing politically incorrect.

  4. They call race a social construct until a white person does something they don’t like, at which point his white genetics become the reason he’s a bad person. The rejection of transracialism by the same people who promote transgenderism proves that the new left has no real principles above “death to whitey”

    And "they call race a social construct until" they realize that blacks are underrepresented in positions they covet. Then, blackness becomes an all-day pass.

    Don’t worry. The way things are going, whiteness will disappear into the mass of Default Humans soon enough.

  6. The worst part is not that it will be made, but that people will think it’s a documentary.

  7. The problem with forced diversity isn’t that the presence of Black actors is offensive. I’ve been desensitized by the constant onslaught that Idris Elba, Beyonce, and Lizzo are the most beautiful humans ever to walk this Earth.

    No, the problem is that affirmative action characters cannot have any depth. You can’t cast an actor to represent the entire Black race only to slander them by him being dumb, buffoonish, greedy, cruel, or having any other moral failing. He must be wise, strong, powerful, loyal, and most importantly FIERCE. The only faults he can have are being too loyal, too moral, too smart for his own good, and most importantly other characters discounting him due to their racism. Damn legacy of antebellum slavery being so powerful that it poisons the minds of Middle Earth and Westeros!

    So, you’re left with stupid characters with no depth. The Black Targaryen has no purpose other than to look cool and FIERCE. I refuse to watch Rings of Power, but I imagine Negrolas the Elf and Black Dwarf Woman are the same.

    There are other corollaries to this rule, also. Because you can’t punch down, no Hollywood screenplay will ever again be written with a villain who is not a white, 100% straight, right-wing man. Every movie will basically be a mashup of Sum of All Fears and Selma, with a European aristocrat trying to bring back fascism and denying little Black girls fair educational opportunities along the way.

    Sometimes it is.

    If it's the ubiquitous salt and pepper team hunting down the bad guys in an American city, it's not offensive--just routine Hollyweird schlock.

    But if it's black popping up in 19th century English drama--worse as gentry and friends of gentry--then it is jarring--and offensive. Click.

    If it's this every white woman--and now white men--routinely having a black spouse--like that's remotely typical instead of really bad decision making, then yeah, that's offensive--very offensive. Click.

    If it's a white single mom, struggling to raise her mulatto children ... ok that's a believable story.

    Was it written earlier or later than 1928?

    1928 was when Steamboat Willie came out. It will be interesting to see how long Disney can continue to justify keeping The Mouse out of the public domain (to complicate things, it is both a copyright and a trademark matter).

    Apparently, the original copyright for material dating from 1928 should have run out nearly 40 years ago in 1984.

    Think how many other things are kept from falling into the public domain by the endless extension of copyright by the US congress at the behest of Disney.

    The whole idea of copyright was to protect the author's exclusive right to publish for a limited period of time. Its a balance between rewarding the creator and benefiting the public.

  9. They keep saying this is to cater for the world market, yet they only have black characters represented, I don’t see any part of Asia represented, that alone is a huge world population ignored, many other population groups are also never going to be shown. It is clearly a lie that they are catering for a wider audience, this is in fact catering for a relatively small audience (the amount of blacks that really care about this is never going to be significant) and is only about pumping out ideological correct propaganda.

  10. I wonder how the NOI is doing these days…a lot of the appeal of them, the Black Hebrew Israelites, 5 Percenters, etc. is that they centered black people as the the most consequential group in America – nay, the world – and provided the necessary mythology.

    Today we have virtually every institution in society doing the same thing, only with more sophistication and the veneer of respectability from academia, entertainment, etc. so maybe recruitment is suffering for the usual suspects as black veneration has gone totally mainstream.

    I don't think the NOI has any traction in the fashionable progressive academia which is driving Woke. The don't like Jews or homos and utilize religion, so they are de-facto bad.

  13. This made me think about various cultures’ profiles.

    Yacub story could be interesting -for someone, even without politics (which is, of course, impossible).
    From what I know, various American culture products met unpredictable fate in parts of Europe (I don’t know about Asia, Middle East or Latin America).

    For instance, the 60s soap “Long, Hot Summer” was a smashing hit in ex-Yugoslavia & Roy Thinnes a superstar (his more important TV shows nobody cared about); Peter Falk & “Columbo” were super-success in Bulgaria and Romania (https://www.avclub.com/romania-asked-peter-falk-to-help-prevent-an-uprising-af-1847093587:
    Romania asked Peter Falk to help prevent an uprising after the country ran out of Columbo episodes
    The actor delivered a speech to the Romanian people to assure them that a new season was on the way); it was similar with Aaron Spelling’s “Dynasty”.

    As far as oldies go, I don’t think that “Star Trek ” fired anyone’s imagination in central & eastern Europe (TV series was simply dismissed as silly); “Dallas’ ‘ (wicked J.R. Ewing) was a moderate success; while the 90s & early 2000s more ambitious shows (Homicide: Life on the Streets; The Sopranos; Breaking Bad) were very successful.

    I don’t know about “Star Trek” in Spain or Sweden or Germany.

    Most vampire shows were watched only by teen girls.

    On the other hand, “The Phantom of the Opera” was/is very successful in the Anglosphere, while in the eastern Europe, it is a non-entity.

    Regarding more recent events- nobody I know is aware of Wakanda & not a single person watched that movie.

    Based on my experience, SF, Horror, any material that is slightly outre doesn't fly in the coldly rational and materialist Nordic countries. They have abandoned their wonderful folklore and mythology for a sterile atheism which displays itself in the much ballyhooed Scandinavian minimalist design schemes. I tried to interest a couple of producers there in a filmed version of Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness, which is in the public domain. They didn't express interest. Sure, my vision of Madness would start at the 1oo million mark, but I tried to convince them that Lovecraft's pseudoscience was much more interesting than their Science. Blank faces. Before I left their office I remarked upon their obvious imagination deficits. Back at the apartment I lamented to my reddish blonde Scandinavian wife that I should probably trade her for a dark haired woman in Spain or Italy. One of the Catholic countries. Say what you will about European Catholics, their cultures are steeped in gothic imagination.

    I will suggest one way to view the “Default Humans.” There’s a reptilian brain, the 3-brain template goes, which does primitive things and automatic, unthinking, default things. Two mammalian brains keep it in check – – until, uh oh, these two fail. Dementia causes such failure. For example Alzheimer’s patient makes lewd remarks to his daughter-in-law.

    In the brain of Leftoids, the Rational Brain is given over to moralizing, which is directly wired to the emotional brain in a closed, self-reinforcing, positive feedback loop. There is no possibility of interdiction by the Intellect.

    Higher thinking, such as that demonstrated by we here at Unz, involves considerations of probabilities, judiciously weighing alternatives and use of synthetic judgement which takes into account and remains cognizant of many factors. We are literally open minded. Our judgement is not usurped by the clamor of an internal paragon to cast himself in the bright white light of moral perfection. So we see things as they are and accept the world as it is.

This is an endless, thankless task, which is why they so often claim to be "tired". This would be okay if that's where they left matters, but they don't. Instead, they become irate with those whom they regard as standing in the way of their Utopia. As their anger builds, they begin to persecute those whom they regard as slackers and resisters. When these measures fail to bring about the desired change, they go full bore homicidal and murder the bastards who won't accept the benefits of their good intentions. They have become "intolerant of intolerance". This is the acme of their moral development.

    Ethiope in The Atlantic says that the evil gentrification narrative is wrong.

    If the gentrification story were true, we would expect historically Black neighborhoods to have seen increases in rent and home prices that made staying untenable. We would also expect poorer households to have left cities in greater numbers than their richer counterparts, because they are least able to weather rising costs. Neither of these premises are borne out in the data.

    Maybe gentrification is good, actually.

    In reality, gentrification of majority-Black urban neighborhoods is rare. Most of these areas are caught in a disinvestment and depopulation spiral. Demand pressure is actually the exact thing they desperately need.

    Also, segregation had certain upsides.

    The implications here are a bit unnerving: Racial segregation gave lower-socioeconomic-status Black households access to interactions with higher-status ones. The unwinding of the legal regime of segregation may have allowed middle-class Black families to separate their fortunes from their lower-income compatriots.

    Is the solution to ¡B!lack problems to escape from ¡B!lackness?

    I was 3 years old when my family fled Ethiopia preemptively, successfully seeking asylum in the United States and leaving everything behind. In the U.S., this coded as underprivileged. To the people left behind 7,000 miles away, we were unbelievably lucky.

    Being able to get out is its own kind of marker of privilege. When disaster strikes, people who avoid the worst of it are often the ones with more money, physical ability, education, connections, youth, and, of course, luck. …

    There are two ways to humanely respond to this inescapable fact about the world: You can try to prevent as many disasters as possible, or you can lower the bar to escaping them. If leaving a failing neighborhood or country was cheap or easy, many more people would do so—according to Gallup, 750 million people would migrate to another country if they could. Even within the U.S., declining rates of mobility point to large numbers of people trapped in communities they would likely leave behind if they could.

    A pretty level piece, especially considering the publication. I believe Steve has previously commented that the elimination of de jure segregation and the flight to the suburbs of the black middle class probably explains a lot of how the remaining black lower class has degenerated into what it is today in the absence of the stabilizing force the black merchant and professional class used to provide.

    Anyway, the upshot is that no one wants to live in a neighborhood dominated by the black lower class if they can help it. Unfortunately, the suburban black middle class has retained its political solidarity with the lower class - probably because they still have a lot of relatives that fit into that category - and the result is that black political preferences are geared towards the lowest common denominator to an extent no other group does. When people on the left bemoan the paucity of blacks who have achieved governorships or Senate seats, they seem to overlook the fact that black Dem politics are tailored for a pretty narrow band of the population and do not have broad appeal outside of that. So you have blacks that are mayors or members of the House where there is a community of interest, but whose politics generally make them unacceptable to an entire state. Obama is basically the only exception to that but his path was very carefully designed, plus he's not really 'black' in the way most people are from a cultural or ancestral sense.

    I wonder how the NOI is doing these days...a lot of the appeal of them, the Black Hebrew Israelites, 5 Percenters, etc. is that they centered black people as the the most consequential group in America - nay, the world - and provided the necessary mythology.

    Today we have virtually every institution in society doing the same thing, only with more sophistication and the veneer of respectability from academia, entertainment, etc. so maybe recruitment is suffering for the usual suspects as black veneration has gone totally mainstream.

    Replies: @Barbarossa

    I don’t think the NOI has any traction in the fashionable progressive academia which is driving Woke. The don’t like Jews or homos and utilize religion, so they are de-facto bad. BLM seems to be significantly about getting the blacks to love buggery and transsexualism; topics on which they are embarrassingly retrograde to their boosters.

    I’m so disappointed though. I was hoping that the headline was of a real Amazon show….

  27. I notice that the Billion Dollar LOTR series is to be shown in Prime, which is therefore bundled with everything else on Prime including its Free Delivery service – so it is in many ways insulated from the market. You can’t punish Prime unless you want to forego all the rest of it, and unfortunately people depend upon Prime Delivery for all manner of things now from toiletries to school supplies and books and everything between. If you have young kids and one of them needs a pair of safety scissors or crayons or something for class you can get them delivered and spare a few hours and the gas running out on a special trip with kids in tow to get them. Amazon is more or less the only toy store left, with minimal brick and mortar competition from Target and Barnes & Noble. Bezos has you cornered. There is no “market” to speak of when you’re talking about consumer choices now – most everything is bundled with a lot of other things.

    LOTR is supposed to be folklore of Britain, with the races representing various Celtic or Germanic populations (query: who are the short, bearded folks who love gold and precious gems and long for a lost homeland supposed to represent?). It’s preposterous that grafting blacks into these races isn’t an act of vandalism.

    The thing about the Game of Thrones Universe is that in the first go-round they were able to seamlessly incorporate plenty of swarthy and non-white characters into the show by demonstrating that they were from other continents or extreme reaches of the known world. So they could have quasi-Persians and quasi-Arabs and quasi-Mongols or whatever with important characters but it didn’t seem like an imposition. Forcing a few blacks into roles of fair-skinned, platinum haired peoples just seems like ostentatious current year-ism.

    Perhaps the only antecedent I can recall is Ivan Dixon as Kinchloe getting dressed in SS garb to perform undercover operations with the boys outside of Stalag 13. But of course in Hogan’s Heroes we’re all in on the gag, and the brunt of the joke are the Germans and not the audience itself.

    The black Hobbit actor who said that people accept dragons so why not a ¡B!lack Hobbit (Nobbit?) was unintentionally making a good point. If Amazon had inserted Chinese-style dragons or cartoon dragons into Middle Earth instead of traditional European dragons, the entire audience would jeer: why are they deliberately ruining the aesthetic? But in the current year, a large part of the audience is brainwashed/browbeaten into accepting this kind of vandalism as normal or at least "just" so long as it serves to displace whites.

    Perhaps it is just me, but I never cease to marvel at how many people (not just you by any means) treat Amazon as though it is the only game in town when it comes to obtaining household and school supplies.

    There are other websites you can buy your gear from, too (eBay for one, though it has its own set of problems). Granted, perhaps the other sites are not as convenient as Amazon, but they do exist and a bit of research may repay itself.

    Consumers have been treating Bezos as though he is the only game in town for years. Not surprisingly, he acts like it, too. And while I am trying to empathise with my fellow consumers, it isn't easy when just about anyone could have seen this coming from quite a long way away.

    If you don't like what Bezos does (and many do not; I can't say I blame them), then wouldn't now be a good time to stop handing him your money? Otherwise, consumers can look forward to more of the exact same behaviour from him in the future.

    “LOTR is supposed to be folklore of Britain, with the races representing various Celtic or Germanic populations”

    According to Who/Whom?

    From Tolkien himself…

    —Such arrangements could be devised according to the tastes or views of those who like allegory or topical reference. But I cordially dislike allegory in all its manifestations, and always have done so since I grew old and wary enough to detect its presence.

    I much prefer history, true or feigned, with its varied applicability to the thought and experience of readers. I think that many confuse ‘applicability’ with ‘allegory’; but the one resides in the freedom of the reader, and the other in the purposed domination of the author.

    An author cannot of course remain wholly unaffected by his experience, but the ways in which a story-germ uses the soil of experience are extremely complex, and attempts to define the process are at best guesses from evidence that is inadequate and ambiguous.

    As for what you say or hint of 'local' conditions: I knew of them. I don't think they have much changed (even for the worse). I used to hear them discussed by my mother; and have ever since taken a special interest in that part of the world. The treatment of colour nearly always horrifies anyone going out from Britain & not only in South Africa. Unfort[unately] not many retain that generous sentiment for long.—

    Come on, man, the hobbits were Tolkien’s nod to the humble rural English people. And weren’t there black people in England in Tolkien’s time?

    As it turns out, in 1950 there were about fifty million white people in England and about twenty thousand PoCs, which included people from the Indian subcontinent. But sure, Barbados was an English colony until 1966, so there might have been a couple of blacks in London then.

    Amazon is just using the same playbook as the BBC and other woke content creators. In the new series Grantchester, a tiny English village in 1950 has black characters, as does the new remake of All Creatures Great and Small which took place in the 1940’s. Because you see, there were black people in England in 1950! So there, racists.

    Are there figures for where blacks, subcontinentals and East Asians were distributed? My guess would be that until recently the bulk of all non-whites (as the joke goes, excluding the Irish) would have been in cosmopolitan, Imperial Capital of London with only a smattering in other enclaves in the larger cities of Britain.

    This made me think about various cultures' profiles.

    Yacub story could be interesting -for someone, even without politics (which is, of course, impossible).
    From what I know, various American culture products met unpredictable fate in parts of Europe (I don't know about Asia, Middle East or Latin America).

    For instance, the 60s soap "Long, Hot Summer" was a smashing hit in ex-Yugoslavia & Roy Thinnes a superstar (his more important TV shows nobody cared about); Peter Falk & "Columbo" were super-success in Bulgaria and Romania (https://www.avclub.com/romania-asked-peter-falk-to-help-prevent-an-uprising-af-1847093587:
    Romania asked Peter Falk to help prevent an uprising after the country ran out of Columbo episodes
    The actor delivered a speech to the Romanian people to assure them that a new season was on the way); it was similar with Aaron Spelling's "Dynasty".

    As far as oldies go, I don't think that "Star Trek '' fired anyone's imagination in central & eastern Europe (TV series was simply dismissed as silly); "Dallas' ' (wicked J.R. Ewing) was a moderate success; while the 90s & early 2000s more ambitious shows (Homicide: Life on the Streets; The Sopranos; Breaking Bad) were very successful.

    I don't know about "Star Trek" in Spain or Sweden or Germany.

    Most vampire shows were watched only by teen girls.

    On the other hand, "The Phantom of the Opera" was/is very successful in the Anglosphere, while in the eastern Europe, it is a non-entity.

    Regarding more recent events- nobody I know is aware of Wakanda & not a single person watched that movie.

    I think half is being overly generous.

    While waiting at a stop light the other day, the "white" girl in front of me lowered her driver's side window and started yelling something to the driver of the car beside her, who was in the turn lane.

    I couldn't tell the race of the other driver, but when the "white" girl started listening to some sort of LOUD discordant noise, and gesticulating in odd patterns with her hands -- all the while bouncing and yelling back-and-forth -- I realized it had to have been urban music, and the other driver a blek guy.

    I was truly disgusted.

    How many years until Nation of Islam founder W.D. Fard’s pamphlet “Lost Found Muslim Lesson No. 2“–the story of the evil eugenicist Dr. Yacub inventing the devilish white race–goes into public domain?
     
    Was it written earlier or later than 1928?

    1928 was when Steamboat Willie came out. It will be interesting to see how long Disney can continue to justify keeping The Mouse out of the public domain (to complicate things, it is both a copyright and a trademark matter).

    Apparently, the original copyright for material dating from 1928 should have run out nearly 40 years ago in 1984.

    On the plus side, there are no longer any lingering doubts about whose interests the US Congress truly represents. It will be interesting to see whether Disney really has managed to burn its bridges with conservative politicians, or if this is simply more of the cheap talk that is politicians' stock in trade and they will roll over for Disney (again).

    I notice that the Billion Dollar LOTR series is to be shown in Prime, which is therefore bundled with everything else on Prime including its Free Delivery service - so it is in many ways insulated from the market. You can't punish Prime unless you want to forego all the rest of it, and unfortunately people depend upon Prime Delivery for all manner of things now from toiletries to school supplies and books and everything between. If you have young kids and one of them needs a pair of safety scissors or crayons or something for class you can get them delivered and spare a few hours and the gas running out on a special trip with kids in tow to get them. Amazon is more or less the only toy store left, with minimal brick and mortar competition from Target and Barnes & Noble. Bezos has you cornered. There is no "market" to speak of when you're talking about consumer choices now - most everything is bundled with a lot of other things.

    LOTR is supposed to be folklore of Britain, with the races representing various Celtic or Germanic populations (query: who are the short, bearded folks who love gold and precious gems and long for a lost homeland supposed to represent?). It's preposterous that grafting blacks into these races isn't an act of vandalism.

    The thing about the Game of Thrones Universe is that in the first go-round they were able to seamlessly incorporate plenty of swarthy and non-white characters into the show by demonstrating that they were from other continents or extreme reaches of the known world. So they could have quasi-Persians and quasi-Arabs and quasi-Mongols or whatever with important characters but it didn't seem like an imposition. Forcing a few blacks into roles of fair-skinned, platinum haired peoples just seems like ostentatious current year-ism.

    Perhaps the only antecedent I can recall is Ivan Dixon as Kinchloe getting dressed in SS garb to perform undercover operations with the boys outside of Stalag 13. But of course in Hogan's Heroes we're all in on the gag, and the brunt of the joke are the Germans and not the audience itself.

    Based on my experience, SF, Horror, any material that is slightly outre doesn’t fly in the coldly rational and materialist Nordic countries. They have abandoned their wonderful folklore and mythology for a sterile atheism which displays itself in the much ballyhooed Scandinavian minimalist design schemes. I tried to interest a couple of producers there in a filmed version of Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness, which is in the public domain. They didn’t express interest. Sure, my vision of Madness would start at the 1oo million mark, but I tried to convince them that Lovecraft’s pseudoscience was much more interesting than their Science. Blank faces. Before I left their office I remarked upon their obvious imagination deficits. Back at the apartment I lamented to my reddish blonde Scandinavian wife that I should probably trade her for a dark haired woman in Spain or Italy. One of the Catholic countries. Say what you will about European Catholics, their cultures are steeped in gothic imagination.

    If there is no federal law, then state law would govern abortion, but if a federal law was passed by Congress concerning abortion, then the federal law would usually supersede the state law. This is not very hard.

    Whether abortion should be governed by a federal law or a state law is a policy issue. A states' rightist like a Ron Paul could argue that the federal government lacks the authority regulate abortion, but this is not a broadly accepted position even on the conservative Supreme Court. The decision overturning Roe specifically acknowledged that Congress could restrict or expand abortion access through its lawmaking powers. The Democrats are currently running congressional campaigns on the very issue of liberalizing abortion rights on the national level.

    “ Steve’s front lawn”

    Is not doing well. The high today in the southern San Fernando Valley is 100, and will be that hot for another 3 days.

    I am getting ready for my 3rd shower today. It isn’t even a dry heat!

  54. Happened already in the Peter Jackson Hobbit films, quite a few of the residents of Laketown were non-white. (Weirdly enough despite filming in New Zealand, I don’t think any of them were Maori though, I think they were black and Chinese.)

    What’s funnier is the situation in the competing ‘House of the Dragon’ Game of Thrones prequel. Despite (Like the LoTR) non-white races living in similar ecological and geographic positions to the whites in Game of Thrones and being seen, they have inserted some black actors (Only black ones as is now tradition, to the point that I’d actually find other non-whites way more jarring at this point and do when they appear.) to play some of the aristocratic Targaryens who are descendants of more Northern Nordic people who conquered the place the new show takes place in a long time ago. In the books they have not had complete endogamy and over centuries their recessive light features dwindled and are even more prized (Like the high castes in India) but the people they conquered are analogous to Mediterranean people not blacks.

    But in the TV show they are shown to be completely endogamous and ethnically distinct with all of them having light hair and blue eyes. The black characters aren’t supposed to be outsiders who’ve been adopted or intermarried, they have their hair dyed white (Because otherwise again you might not realise what group they’re supposed to be) as if they are part of the same inbred aristocratic ethnicity. There isn’t even an ‘out’ in terms of pretending they’re dying their hair to fit in or something, they are playing characters who are high ranking members in this lineage. It’s surreal and can only be explained by the new explicit contractual quotas on non-white main characters in new series.

    I notice that the Billion Dollar LOTR series is to be shown in Prime, which is therefore bundled with everything else on Prime including its Free Delivery service - so it is in many ways insulated from the market. You can't punish Prime unless you want to forego all the rest of it, and unfortunately people depend upon Prime Delivery for all manner of things now from toiletries to school supplies and books and everything between. If you have young kids and one of them needs a pair of safety scissors or crayons or something for class you can get them delivered and spare a few hours and the gas running out on a special trip with kids in tow to get them. Amazon is more or less the only toy store left, with minimal brick and mortar competition from Target and Barnes & Noble. Bezos has you cornered. There is no "market" to speak of when you're talking about consumer choices now - most everything is bundled with a lot of other things.

    LOTR is supposed to be folklore of Britain, with the races representing various Celtic or Germanic populations (query: who are the short, bearded folks who love gold and precious gems and long for a lost homeland supposed to represent?). It's preposterous that grafting blacks into these races isn't an act of vandalism.

    The thing about the Game of Thrones Universe is that in the first go-round they were able to seamlessly incorporate plenty of swarthy and non-white characters into the show by demonstrating that they were from other continents or extreme reaches of the known world. So they could have quasi-Persians and quasi-Arabs and quasi-Mongols or whatever with important characters but it didn't seem like an imposition. Forcing a few blacks into roles of fair-skinned, platinum haired peoples just seems like ostentatious current year-ism.

    Perhaps the only antecedent I can recall is Ivan Dixon as Kinchloe getting dressed in SS garb to perform undercover operations with the boys outside of Stalag 13. But of course in Hogan's Heroes we're all in on the gag, and the brunt of the joke are the Germans and not the audience itself.

    Come on, man, the hobbits were Tolkien’s nod to the humble rural English people. And weren’t there black people in England in Tolkien’s time?

    As it turns out, in 1950 there were about fifty million white people in England and about twenty thousand PoCs, which included people from the Indian subcontinent. But sure, Barbados was an English colony until 1966, so there might have been a couple of blacks in London then.

    Are there figures for where blacks, subcontinentals and East Asians were distributed? My guess would be that until recently the bulk of all non-whites (as the joke goes, excluding the Irish) would have been in cosmopolitan, Imperial Capital of London with only a smattering in other enclaves in the larger cities of Britain. In South Westyorkfordshire on Trent you’d likely sooner see an elephant drinking tea from chintz china.

    Perhaps it is just me, but I never cease to marvel at how many people (not just you by any means) treat Amazon as though it is the only game in town when it comes to obtaining household and school supplies.

    There are other websites you can buy your gear from, too (eBay for one, though it has its own set of problems). Granted, perhaps the other sites are not as convenient as Amazon, but they do exist and a bit of research may repay itself.

    Consumers have been treating Bezos as though he is the only game in town for years. Not surprisingly, he acts like it, too. And while I am trying to empathise with my fellow consumers, it isn’t easy when just about anyone could have seen this coming from quite a long way away.

    If you don’t like what Bezos does (and many do not; I can’t say I blame them), then wouldn’t now be a good time to stop handing him your money? Otherwise, consumers can look forward to more of the exact same behaviour from him in the future.

    Consider a family with young school aged children. One of your children's teachers hands you a school supplies list with a number of specific items in it. The teacher herself knows these things are all readily available on Amazon.com. To run out and attempt these things could take a full day with multiple kids in tow. Surfing the internet for non-Amazon sources and then paying additional shipping for shipping from each website is a non-starter for people (aside from differences in price). Amazon allows that mother to click a few times, spending maybe 10-12 minutes, and forget about it. People aren't just going to give this up.

  58. Well, to be fair, how do you go back to making all-white movies, when now multiculti casting is the norm, and also the population, and everybody or at least a significant part of the audience will complain about the lack of a Black-Asian-Jewish Disabled Lesbian in at least one of the roles?

    Also, there are now several Black and Asian actors in Hollywood and they need jobs and they want roles in prestigious films and series too.

    I think the only solution is to expel all other races from European countries. Then racism and representation “according to the demographics” will no longer be a problem, and we will be able to make all-white films again.

    The problem with forced diversity isn't that the presence of Black actors is offensive. I've been desensitized by the constant onslaught that Idris Elba, Beyonce, and Lizzo are the most beautiful humans ever to walk this Earth.

    No, the problem is that affirmative action characters cannot have any depth. You can't cast an actor to represent the entire Black race only to slander them by him being dumb, buffoonish, greedy, cruel, or having any other moral failing. He must be wise, strong, powerful, loyal, and most importantly FIERCE. The only faults he can have are being too loyal, too moral, too smart for his own good, and most importantly other characters discounting him due to their racism. Damn legacy of antebellum slavery being so powerful that it poisons the minds of Middle Earth and Westeros!

    So, you're left with stupid characters with no depth. The Black Targaryen has no purpose other than to look cool and FIERCE. I refuse to watch Rings of Power, but I imagine Negrolas the Elf and Black Dwarf Woman are the same.

    There are other corollaries to this rule, also. Because you can't punch down, no Hollywood screenplay will ever again be written with a villain who is not a white, 100% straight, right-wing man. Every movie will basically be a mashup of Sum of All Fears and Selma, with a European aristocrat trying to bring back fascism and denying little Black girls fair educational opportunities along the way.

    Sometimes it is.

    If it’s the ubiquitous salt and pepper team hunting down the bad guys in an American city, it’s not offensive–just routine Hollyweird schlock.

    But if it’s black popping up in 19th century English drama–worse as gentry and friends of gentry–then it is jarring–and offensive. Click.

    If it’s this every white woman–and now white men–routinely having a black spouse–like that’s remotely typical instead of really bad decision making, then yeah, that’s offensive–very offensive. Click.

    If it’s a white single mom, struggling to raise her mulatto children … ok that’s a believable story.

    This made me think about various cultures' profiles.

    Yacub story could be interesting -for someone, even without politics (which is, of course, impossible).
    From what I know, various American culture products met unpredictable fate in parts of Europe (I don't know about Asia, Middle East or Latin America).

    For instance, the 60s soap "Long, Hot Summer" was a smashing hit in ex-Yugoslavia & Roy Thinnes a superstar (his more important TV shows nobody cared about); Peter Falk & "Columbo" were super-success in Bulgaria and Romania (https://www.avclub.com/romania-asked-peter-falk-to-help-prevent-an-uprising-af-1847093587:
    Romania asked Peter Falk to help prevent an uprising after the country ran out of Columbo episodes
    The actor delivered a speech to the Romanian people to assure them that a new season was on the way); it was similar with Aaron Spelling's "Dynasty".

    As far as oldies go, I don't think that "Star Trek '' fired anyone's imagination in central & eastern Europe (TV series was simply dismissed as silly); "Dallas' ' (wicked J.R. Ewing) was a moderate success; while the 90s & early 2000s more ambitious shows (Homicide: Life on the Streets; The Sopranos; Breaking Bad) were very successful.

    I don't know about "Star Trek" in Spain or Sweden or Germany.

    Most vampire shows were watched only by teen girls.

    On the other hand, "The Phantom of the Opera" was/is very successful in the Anglosphere, while in the eastern Europe, it is a non-entity.

    Regarding more recent events- nobody I know is aware of Wakanda & not a single person watched that movie.

    So, it depends....

    On the plus side, there are no longer any lingering doubts about whose interests the US Congress truly represents.

    A pretty level piece, especially considering the publication. I believe Steve has previously commented that the elimination of de jure segregation and the flight to the suburbs of the black middle class probably explains a lot of how the remaining black lower class has degenerated into what it is today in the absence of the stabilizing force the black merchant and professional class used to provide.

    Anyway, the upshot is that no one wants to live in a neighborhood dominated by the black lower class if they can help it. Unfortunately, the suburban black middle class has retained its political solidarity with the lower class - probably because they still have a lot of relatives that fit into that category - and the result is that black political preferences are geared towards the lowest common denominator to an extent no other group does. When people on the left bemoan the paucity of blacks who have achieved governorships or Senate seats, they seem to overlook the fact that black Dem politics are tailored for a pretty narrow band of the population and do not have broad appeal outside of that. So you have blacks that are mayors or members of the House where there is a community of interest, but whose politics generally make them unacceptable to an entire state. Obama is basically the only exception to that but his path was very carefully designed, plus he's not really 'black' in the way most people are from a cultural or ancestral sense.

    This is pretty much the only issue the MSM in Europe is talking about. Current consensus is that between alternative supplies and subsidies no one will be paying close to $2K a month, although it will get expensive enough to drive street protests.

    I notice that the Billion Dollar LOTR series is to be shown in Prime, which is therefore bundled with everything else on Prime including its Free Delivery service - so it is in many ways insulated from the market. You can't punish Prime unless you want to forego all the rest of it, and unfortunately people depend upon Prime Delivery for all manner of things now from toiletries to school supplies and books and everything between. If you have young kids and one of them needs a pair of safety scissors or crayons or something for class you can get them delivered and spare a few hours and the gas running out on a special trip with kids in tow to get them. Amazon is more or less the only toy store left, with minimal brick and mortar competition from Target and Barnes & Noble. Bezos has you cornered. There is no "market" to speak of when you're talking about consumer choices now - most everything is bundled with a lot of other things.

    LOTR is supposed to be folklore of Britain, with the races representing various Celtic or Germanic populations (query: who are the short, bearded folks who love gold and precious gems and long for a lost homeland supposed to represent?). It's preposterous that grafting blacks into these races isn't an act of vandalism.

    The thing about the Game of Thrones Universe is that in the first go-round they were able to seamlessly incorporate plenty of swarthy and non-white characters into the show by demonstrating that they were from other continents or extreme reaches of the known world. So they could have quasi-Persians and quasi-Arabs and quasi-Mongols or whatever with important characters but it didn't seem like an imposition. Forcing a few blacks into roles of fair-skinned, platinum haired peoples just seems like ostentatious current year-ism.

    Perhaps the only antecedent I can recall is Ivan Dixon as Kinchloe getting dressed in SS garb to perform undercover operations with the boys outside of Stalag 13. But of course in Hogan's Heroes we're all in on the gag, and the brunt of the joke are the Germans and not the audience itself.

    According to Who/Whom?

    From Tolkien himself…

    —Such arrangements could be devised according to the tastes or views of those who like allegory or topical reference. But I cordially dislike allegory in all its manifestations, and always have done so since I grew old and wary enough to detect its presence.

    I much prefer history, true or feigned, with its varied applicability to the thought and experience of readers. I think that many confuse ‘applicability’ with ‘allegory’; but the one resides in the freedom of the reader, and the other in the purposed domination of the author.

    An author cannot of course remain wholly unaffected by his experience, but the ways in which a story-germ uses the soil of experience are extremely complex, and attempts to define the process are at best guesses from evidence that is inadequate and ambiguous.

    As for what you say or hint of ‘local’ conditions: I knew of them. I don’t think they have much changed (even for the worse). I used to hear them discussed by my mother; and have ever since taken a special interest in that part of the world. The treatment of colour nearly always horrifies anyone going out from Britain & not only in South Africa. Unfort[unately] not many retain that generous sentiment for long.—

    The problem with forced diversity isn’t that the presence of Black actors is offensive.
     
    Sometimes it is.

    If it's the ubiquitous salt and pepper team hunting down the bad guys in an American city, it's not offensive--just routine Hollyweird schlock.

    But if it's black popping up in 19th century English drama--worse as gentry and friends of gentry--then it is jarring--and offensive. Click.

    If it's this every white woman--and now white men--routinely having a black spouse--like that's remotely typical instead of really bad decision making, then yeah, that's offensive--very offensive. Click.

    If it's a white single mom, struggling to raise her mulatto children ... ok that's a believable story.

    Nice try.

    The subject was "racial discrimination", not ability to decline to sell to certain customers.

    I have never seen any signage at gun shops that read "No blacks" or "Whites only" or "No Mexicans" etc. Have you? Of course not...

    I have seen photos (old) of those "No Irish Need Apply" from places like Boston, circa 1900. No reason to think they weren't real. Whether there are any remaining physical signs I can't say. Maybe in some museum. Irish, like Jews and Asians, some Eastern Europeans were commonly discriminated against in the 19th ceturny.

    While a gun shop owner might personally not sell to certain races, if they said that was the specific reason for the non sale, of course they would be vulnerable to a legal action. Interstate commerce, etc. You would have to prove it legally.

    In the gun shops I have visited, I have seen no evidence of any racial discrimination and in fact quite a few blacks or Asians, Hispanics appear to be customers.

    Don't change the subject from outright racial discrimination to mere choosy about customers.

    For what it is worth, tattooing has globally exploded in popularity among the young, so this isn't limited to the US. That said, in countries that had a very strong "prison culture" (Russia, Vietnam, former Yugoslavia, Indonesia) in relatively recent times due to dictatorship, the only people with tattoos then were criminals. This means that older generations in those cultures still view them very negatively, even in a place like Indonesia where tattoos really are part of the indigenous culture.

    I am under the impression that while the association with criminality wasn't quite as automatic in the US as in other places (soldiers/sailors in places with military presence, Holocaust survivors in places like New York), it still carried enough of a negative "underclass" stigma to limit them to the margins of society.

    Yacub story could be interesting -for someone, even without politics (which is, of course, impossible).
    From what I know, various American culture products met unpredictable fate in parts of Europe (I don't know about Asia, Middle East or Latin America).

    For instance, the 60s soap "Long, Hot Summer" was a smashing hit in ex-Yugoslavia & Roy Thinnes a superstar (his more important TV shows nobody cared about); Peter Falk & "Columbo" were super-success in Bulgaria and Romania (https://www.avclub.com/romania-asked-peter-falk-to-help-prevent-an-uprising-af-1847093587:
    Romania asked Peter Falk to help prevent an uprising after the country ran out of Columbo episodes
    The actor delivered a speech to the Romanian people to assure them that a new season was on the way); it was similar with Aaron Spelling's "Dynasty".

    As far as oldies go, I don't think that "Star Trek '' fired anyone's imagination in central & eastern Europe (TV series was simply dismissed as silly); "Dallas' ' (wicked J.R. Ewing) was a moderate success; while the 90s & early 2000s more ambitious shows (Homicide: Life on the Streets; The Sopranos; Breaking Bad) were very successful.

    I don't know about "Star Trek" in Spain or Sweden or Germany.

    Most vampire shows were watched only by teen girls.

    On the other hand, "The Phantom of the Opera" was/is very successful in the Anglosphere, while in the eastern Europe, it is a non-entity.

    In the brain of Leftoids, the Rational Brain is given over to moralizing, which is directly wired to the emotional brain in a closed, self-reinforcing, positive feedback loop. There is no possibility of interdiction by the Intellect.

    Higher thinking, such as that demonstrated by we here at Unz, involves considerations of probabilities, judiciously weighing alternatives and use of synthetic judgement which takes into account and remains cognizant of many factors. We are literally open minded. Our judgement is not usurped by the clamor of an internal paragon to cast himself in the bright white light of moral perfection. So we see things as they are and accept the world as it is.

    Leftoids always say, "Why not? Why can't the world be as I wish it to be? I am aspirational." And then they set about trying to reprogram Nature. This is an endless, thankless task, which is why they so often claim to be "tired". This would be okay if that's where they left matters, but they don't. Instead, they become irate with those whom they regard as standing in the way of their Utopia. As their anger builds, they begin to persecute those whom they regard as slackers and resisters. When these measures fail to bring about the desired change, they go full bore homicidal and murder the bastards who won't accept the benefits of their good intentions. They have become "intolerant of intolerance". This is the acme of their moral development.

    Communists haven’t believed in “utopia” for over 30 years. Being “intolerant of intolerance” is over 30 years old. The White communists who sought to get my grad school logic professor, Michael Levin, fired and Whitelisted, beginning in 1989, used to say that.

    Whether abortion should be governed by a federal law or a state law is a policy issue.
     

    You have a weird view of federalism and the US Constitution.

    In fact, whether abortion is federal matter is precisely a Constitutional issue, not a "policy issue".

    And, of course, it is not. There's basically nothing about abortion that has anything to do with the enumerated powers of the federal government. If abortion is within legislative domain of the United States Congress, then everything is. Federalism is moot.

    It was the Supreme's not just doing ridiculous judicial legislating, but also imposing a particular--and radical--"one sized fits all" abortion regime that suddenly in one swoop made abortion a contentious political issue.

    Replies: @AnotherDad, @clifford brown

    I would argue under the commerce clause and the 14th Amendment, the juggernauts of federal power. Does a late term fetus have a right to due process under the 14th Amendment? I think both sides would make the commerce clause play and tie Medicaid funds to abortion regulations if they had the votes. It would be interesting if the conservative court struck down a federal late term abortion ban.

    For what it is worth, tattooing has globally exploded in popularity among the young, so this isn’t limited to the US. That said, in countries that had a very strong “prison culture” (Russia, Vietnam, former Yugoslavia, Indonesia) in relatively recent times due to dictatorship, the only people with tattoos then were criminals. This means that older generations in those cultures still view them very negatively, even in a place like Indonesia where tattoos really are part of the indigenous culture.

    I am under the impression that while the association with criminality wasn’t quite as automatic in the US as in other places (soldiers/sailors in places with military presence, Holocaust survivors in places like New York), it still carried enough of a negative “underclass” stigma to limit them to the margins of society.

    and unfortunately people depend upon Prime Delivery for all manner of things now from toiletries to school supplies and books and everything between. If you have young kids and one of them needs a pair of safety scissors or crayons or something for class you can get them delivered and spare a few hours and the gas running out on a special trip with kids in tow to get them. Amazon is more or less the only toy store left,
     
    Perhaps it is just me, but I never cease to marvel at how many people (not just you by any means) treat Amazon as though it is the only game in town when it comes to obtaining household and school supplies.

    There are other websites you can buy your gear from, too (eBay for one, though it has its own set of problems). Granted, perhaps the other sites are not as convenient as Amazon, but they do exist and a bit of research may repay itself.

    Consumers have been treating Bezos as though he is the only game in town for years. Not surprisingly, he acts like it, too. And while I am trying to empathise with my fellow consumers, it isn't easy when just about anyone could have seen this coming from quite a long way away.

    If you don't like what Bezos does (and many do not; I can't say I blame them), then wouldn't now be a good time to stop handing him your money? Otherwise, consumers can look forward to more of the exact same behaviour from him in the future.

    Consider a family with young school aged children. One of your children’s teachers hands you a school supplies list with a number of specific items in it. The teacher herself knows these things are all readily available on Amazon.com. To run out and attempt these things could take a full day with multiple kids in tow. Surfing the internet for non-Amazon sources and then paying additional shipping for shipping from each website is a non-starter for people (aside from differences in price).

    Think how many other things are kept from falling into the public domain by the endless extension of copyright by the US congress at the behest of Disney.
     
    I try not to. It is far too exasperating (though it is worth noting that US laws may not always work outside the US).

    On the plus side, there are no longer any lingering doubts about whose interests the US Congress truly represents. It will be interesting to see whether Disney really has managed to burn its bridges with conservative politicians, or if this is simply more of the cheap talk that is politicians' stock in trade and they will roll over for Disney (again).

    Racial discrimination is still perfectly legal in gun shops.
     
    I have seen no evidence of this...
     
    Gun shops have a blanket dispensation to turn down any sale they feel is suspicious, for any reason on God's green earth, and they will face no legal trouble for doing so.

    Nice try.

    The subject was “racial discrimination”, not ability to decline to sell to certain customers.

    I have never seen any signage at gun shops that read “No blacks” or “Whites only” or “No Mexicans” etc. Have you? Of course not…

    I have seen photos (old) of those “No Irish Need Apply” from places like Boston, circa 1900. No reason to think they weren’t real. Whether there are any remaining physical signs I can’t say. Maybe in some museum. Irish, like Jews and Asians, some Eastern Europeans were commonly discriminated against in the 19th ceturny.

    While a gun shop owner might personally not sell to certain races, if they said that was the specific reason for the non sale, of course they would be vulnerable to a legal action. Interstate commerce, etc. You would have to prove it legally.

    In the gun shops I have visited, I have seen no evidence of any racial discrimination and in fact quite a few blacks or Asians, Hispanics appear to be customers.

    Don’t change the subject from outright racial discrimination to mere choosy about customers.

    Just remember, while Whites (the ones who even know about this stuff at all) tend to smile and roll their eyes at all the loony NOI rants about "grafted devils" and "Yacub" and all that, essentially every nigro in America not only knows about this stuff, but actually believes it. Last I looked the membership of the NOI is 50,000, if I remember right.

    This is misleading. Pretty much every negro in America is a de facto member. If you got a few drinks in Condoleeza Rice or Clarence Thomas, they'd agree with the whole Yacub thing, or at least say it's not impossible.

    Perhaps it is just me, but I never cease to marvel at how many people (not just you by any means) treat Amazon as though it is the only game in town when it comes to obtaining household and school supplies.

    There are other websites you can buy your gear from, too (eBay for one, though it has its own set of problems). Granted, perhaps the other sites are not as convenient as Amazon, but they do exist and a bit of research may repay itself.

    Consumers have been treating Bezos as though he is the only game in town for years. Not surprisingly, he acts like it, too. And while I am trying to empathise with my fellow consumers, it isn’t easy when just about anyone could have seen this coming from quite a long way away.
     
    Consider a family with young school aged children. One of your children's teachers hands you a school supplies list with a number of specific items in it. The teacher herself knows these things are all readily available on Amazon.com. To run out and attempt these things could take a full day with multiple kids in tow. Surfing the internet for non-Amazon sources and then paying additional shipping for shipping from each website is a non-starter for people (aside from differences in price). Amazon allows that mother to click a few times, spending maybe 10-12 minutes, and forget about it. People aren't just going to give this up.

Back in the good old days before evil 👿 evil 👿 factory farming eggs arrived at the market covered with small and not so small specks of manure. They had to be carefully washed before cracking. It’s much easier to see specks of manure on white eggs. So when people discovered that manure carries germs white eggs became more and more popular.
