Nowadays, fortunately, we have more scientific explanations for why the top Japanese woman tennis player is half-black than discredited eugenics ideas like fast-twitch muscles.

Now, we know it’s due to Black Girl Magic!

Seriously, we used to at least have smart white guys like Richard Lewontin and Stephen Jay Gould making up our rationalizations about race, but now we are just devolving into low-brow magical thinking.

  1. I guess the “magical negro” isn’t just a literary or cinematic term – it’s like, real man.

    Yep, black folks seemed to chafe at the term “magical negro” years ago, but now damn-near seem to embrace it, at least in terms of “black girl magic.” I believe that Steve has pointed out previously that blacks do seem to embrace the concept of magic and/or magical thinking. So much easier to engage with than objective reality, facts and figures . . .

  2. Awwwwwww, whiteboy gon’ get lightning’dddddd!

  3. What do black pundits and media figures attribute black athletic triumphs to? I suspect they agree it is blackness.

    Magic sounds better and rules out social and genetic factors.

  4. Naomi is fully Black and fully Japanese! She is certainly full of something.

  5. we used to at least have smart white guys like Richard Lewontin and Stephen Jay Gould

    Many here would disagree. I don’t take sides on this. But I do think we should always capitalize ‘White’. You can send me to the gulags, but I will always prize logical consistency.

    That reminds me -- does this Olympics have a cute, cartoonish mascot as is usually the custom, or is everyone too depressed this year? A rainbow-colored squid would be perfect, since I don't think anyone would go for a guy frolicking around Philly Phanatic-style in a fuzzy spiked Covid-particle suit.

    A logical consequence of devolving into Stone Age thinkers.

    Vitalina Batsarashkina wins 1st gold for Russia, setting Olympic RECORD in women’s 10m pistol event in Tokyo

    Russian shooter Vitalina Batsarashkina has won the women’s 10-meter air pistol event, setting a new Olympic record in Tokyo. Bulgaria’s Antoaneta Kostadinova won the silver, and China’s Jiang Ranxin took bronze.

    Why is there a women's competition in shooting?

    And as a minor matter, the first syllable of this lady's last name is how you say "bang!" in Russian.

  13. I would only add that blacks’ achievement in sports is real, but absurdly overrated. This is a kind of optical illusion.

    They are dominant in running & virtually nowhere else, as regards Olympic sports.

    Olympic shooting was coed about 30 years ago. A Chinese woman beat some men to win a gold medal in shooting back then. Then shooting was divided up into men's and women's divisions because everybody likes more medals.

    was that a joke steve? i didn’t get it.

    why can i sentence steve to “10 years without right of correspondence” but not sentence him to sonderbehandlung?

    because steve is the world’s tallest jew.

  26. Lewontin was only smart enough to brainwash me into believing that “race doesn’t exist” from a college textbook until Razib set me straight.

    Lewontin was evil.

  27. Where ever there are disparities there is racism.

    So there, that explains it all, and that’s not my view that’s the reality of the racial god, AKA Kendi

    Wait until you found out that all the music played during the Olympics Opening were all except one, music from Japanese video games :D

  29. While it is certainly a sign of intellectual and civilizational decline that Lewontin and Gould have been replaced by “worship my hair but don’t touch it,” that has to be a good development. Previously a large number of people could simply say hey those smart guys at Harvard said mumble mumble reasons race doesn’t exist and not think about it. Anyone who has the capacity to notice can’t simply not notice this any more.

    I never heard of half of those countries. A third of their citizens made the team. 255% of their GDPs went for uniforms.
