Ever since I blogged about the acclaim for the new novel The Last White Man by Mohsin Hamid earlier this month, it has been getting a lot of comment on line from the right. But it doesn’t look like many have actually read it, so I read it. And here’s my review:

Pigment of Your Imagination
Steve Sailer

August 17, 2022

As antiwhite racism has become more respectable, use of the word “whiteness,” which is increasingly employed as an ethnic slur, has sextupled in frequency in books published in America since the first era of political correctness began in the late 1980s.

While calls to “Abolish the White Race” may sound alarmingly genocidal, advocates of defaming, deconstructing, dismantling, and destroying the white race, on the rare occasions when challenged, tend to respond that they don’t mean doing violence to the white race, which, science has proven, doesn’t exist biologically, just to “whiteness,” which is totally different from white people (who don’t exist).

In the current mindset, “whiteness” represents everything you deserve to resent about white people—their home equity, their accomplished ancestors, their fair skin, their silky hair, their genes, and all those other social constructs. But you shouldn’t be accused of exactly hating white human beings themselves (who, as Ta-Nahisi Coates would always point out, are really only “people who think they are white”), just their whiteness.

Yes, I know that doesn’t seem to make much sense, but that just proves how you didn’t go to grad school.

This summer, a prominent literary novelist born in Pakistan, Mohsin Hamid, has published a much-acclaimed fantasy looking forward to the (almost completely nonviolent) extinction of the white race, The Last White Man, that exemplifies contemporary antiwhiteness thought at its least hate-filled.

Read the whole thing there.

  1. This was already done as a movie called Watermelon Man. The 1970 film was written by Herman Raucher, it tells the story of a bigoted white insurance salesman who wakes up one morning to find that he has become Black. The premise for the film was inspired by Kafka’s Metamorphosis, and by John Howard Griffin’s autobiographical Black Like Me. Godfrey Cambridge plays the role in whiteface for the first few minutes of the film, and then goes without the makeup when his character changes into a black man.

    Herman Raucher wrote a novel based on his screenplay, also called Watermelon Man. He is best known for writing the autobiographical screenplay and novel Summer of ’42

    An even more literal adaptation of Kafka's work was the plot of District 9 where the Afrikaans policeman tasked with policing the enclave of insectoid aliens who've landed in Johannesburg begins to transform into one.

    What's funny about District 9 is that it takes place after apartheid but was still solely taken by Western critics to be a metaphor about apartheid but the originally short film makes it very clear the original premise was for the aliens to be an allegory for the masses of immigrants, almost entirely illegal, who flooded into big South African cities from Zimbabwe, Nigeria and even other places after 1994. Shockingly 'racial nationalism' isn't really a thing, nationalism is and the local black populations who were still living in shocking poverty didn't appreciate these dynamic newcomers composed mostly of shiftless young men speaking alien languages who made their lives even harder.

    In the original short film Blomkamp made this is more clear with the aliens even wearing hoodies and having their lines cribbed from what you'd expect a shiftless illegal immigrant to say. Among the pox pops of people talking about the aliens there is at least one that isn't acted and is from a woman talking about the immigrants. Indeed it seems clear that his vision in Elysium is based on these massive movements of people living in shanty towns is inspired by this. (Actually almost all of his work is about the apocalyptic destruction of Earth by invaders or the degradation of society, makes you think...) But Western audiences didn't get the metaphor in District 9 and thought it was about apartheid. I guess he had to be more direct with Elysium.

    The bulk of this was due to the archaic open border left by the ANC as a sop to the ZPF and Robert Mugabe for his support over many years. It's only in 2022 that this policy has begun to be reversed and it has caused a total meltdown, mostly among wealthy whites it must be said. (And Julius Malema who is a weird racial nationalist who doesn't care where the black people come from or what they do so long as they drop the percentage white number down despite the proportion for the youngest age cohorts being just 5%)

    The recent flap is from the termination of the Zimbabwe Exemption Permit given out over 10 years ago when the numbers from Zimbabwe had become massive. It basically exempted 200k from being considered an illegal immigrant somewhat like the exemption given to Haitians in the US. It has finally be shot down in court. Most of the people going nuts about it were whites and the immigrants themselves. As whites in South African went from having a sense of ownership of the state to becoming a dwindling minority their collective strategies and interests have begun to resemble groups with similar statuses. See also the adoption of libertarian politics and multiculturalism by them.

    There’s a movie from 1995 that reverses the script.

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WQWhDvKEiSw

    Here is the fact of the matter. Most white people make their own decisions about race and culture. They do not think they will be murdered out of existence or be reduced to Planet of the Apes status. We befriend and date and mate outside of our race. Not because we have been brainwashed by Jews, but rather because we critically think about the world around us and our place in it. And a young generation ages 13 to 25 understand race and culture in clear, concise terms based upon their experiences and discussions of those experiences.

    Now, if white peoples want to live amongst themselves, fine. They have that liberty. Just expect that there will be flak, similar to what minorities experience when they make their demands and whites get bent out of shape about it.

    The best part of Summer of '42 was when Herman Raucher said lots of women stepped forward and claimed they were the Jennifer O'Neill character after the movie came out. But only ONE letter he recognized as the actual person because she named the song that was playing.

    That forever marked in my mind that there are plenty of nutty women in America that are willing to claim anything, and that trusting what a person states because they are female is literal insanity.

    Mitchel Legrand did the music for '42, and during the French military parade that Trump attended in Paris, they played a few bars from the movie in honor of Legrand who had died.

    This Hamid guy sounds like a talentless hack, trolling for PC points.

    A much more interesting premise would involve voluntary race switching. For example, what if they invented a pill that turned you into whatever race you wanted temporarily. How many blacks would switch to white? Would they chose to stay that way all or most of the time, or just occasionally? Would it solve all their perceived problems in life?

    Would white wokesters turn black for political solidarity and to destroy "whiteness"? Would wiggers and rednecks go black just to party it up and have more fun? Maybe the longer you stayed race-switched, the more you absorb the non-cosmetic racial traits as your "true self." (The trans-whites would start talking in a honky voice and showing up to work on time; the trans-blacks would start stabbing anyone who stepped on their shoes, or whatever).

    Maybe everyone ends up choosing white, which totally ruins the brand. So the original whites (OWs) all secretly agree to switch to Samoan or something so they can keep themselves separate, and then that becomes the new high-status race. And everyone starts bitching about "Samoan-ness."

    Dr. Seuss did a rough first draft of this premise with his story about the Star-Bellied Sneetches.

  3. One suspects the idea of pigmentation as an adaptation to UV exposure is unknown to most book reviewers.
    They do know, but can’t say, that white countries are nicer than brown and black ones.

    It's hard to call it an "adaption" because it's probably the original setup - if it is an a adaption it was made millions of years ago even before humans were human.

    The "adaption" is not having pigmented skin.

    One theory is that this was to allow white people to make more Vitamin D in cloudy northern climates.

    Another theory is that white skin is a form of sexual selection like peacock feathers (or large breasts on human females) because fairness is a sign of youth/fertility. In sunny places, this sexual selection competition couldn't run its full course because at some point you would sunburn to death but in the cold north and protected by clothing the race to the bottom could continue until all skin pigment was completely gone.

    I'm old enough to remember Summer of '42 being promoted and shown on television, but I was too young to understand what it was about, though I remember other boys making much of the condom-buying scene, which I also didn't get. Since I never saw (or read) it, I read the Wiki summary just now. The most troubling thing to me was less the story itself than all the letters the writer received from women claiming to be "Dorothy". Okay, I'm old enough now to understand that not every woman is a Penelope, but Cape Cod in 1942 wasn't exactly densely settled and US war casualties at that time were relatively light, so for there to be "over a dozen" women claiming to be the newlywed Cape Cod honeymooneress who beds a 15-year-old the same night as learning of her husband's death implies this must have been the near-universal practice. Crikey. Is it possible to suppose that morals have improved since then?

    Also, what was an American plane doing over France in the summer of 1942? I thought the US bombing of Europe didn't get underway until 1943. In 1942 summer, US armed forces were fighting in the Pacific and preparing for the autumn invasion of North Africa. Wiki's "Factual Basis" section makes a big deal of Now, Voyager not actually being in US theaters until autumn of 1942, yet US air combat over France strikes me as a bigger anachronism. Maybe it was a recon plane?

    a/c/t wiki he didn't actually do the deed with the (very) newly widowed woman, who "had drink taken".

    I'm not sure here are any villains here, unless it's the people who start wars.


    On the night memorialized in the film, Raucher randomly came to visit her, unaware his arrival was just minutes after she received notification of her husband's death. She was confused and upset, had been drinking heavily, and repeatedly called Raucher by her husband's name. Although both ultimately disrobed, contrary to popular perception, sexual intercourse did not occur. Raucher admitted this in a 2002 interview saying it was mostly holding, but in the movie "We let you think what you want."
     
    https://web.archive.org/web/20060206230410/http://web.tcpalm.com/specialreports/summerof42/raucher.html

    LHP: Your brief time with Dorothy was a first romantic experience for you, I assume.
    HR: Oh, it was hardly romantic. It was terrifying...I was really scared. ... I didn’t know what to do.

    LHP: Up to that point, had you felt in your heart some guilt about this? That perhaps you had taken advantage of her?
    HR: No. No, I didn’t at all.
    I don’t know what I felt.
    Again, because we never consummated it. I, uh, we - we were mostly holding.
    You know, in the movie, we let you think what you want.

    LHP: Right.
    HR: Yes, we had no clothes on, but she thought I was her husband. ... She kept calling me ‘Pete’.
    And I was not of a mind to slap her in the face and say, ‘You’ve gotta cut this out.’
    I was just going to be Pete as best I could.

    LHP: I see.
    HR: It was quite a moment for a 14-year-old. I will fess up to that.
    And the aftermath of that was, I dated every girl I could find whose name was Dorothy.

    I never read the book and only saw the movie, but, as best I can recall what I haven't seen for decades, didn't Jennifer O'Neill's "Dorothy" seduce him? (Not that that really improves the situation any ...) My hormones and I were obviously too fixated on Jennifer O'Neill back then to ponder the severe moral pratfalls.

  5. In the epilogue set years later, Anders’ nonwhite daughter tells her ex-white grandmother, who likes to talk to her about their white ancestors, to shut up.

    That might offend some people, as clearly it should have been her ex-white grandfather. Indeed the grandmother should have turned into a Magical Negress who’d dispense a new wisdom. This guy hasn’t thought at all about a movie – though I wouldn’t bet against somebody making one.

    They lost their accursed whiteness when they allied and risked their bodies for "black bodies" and the black lives animating them (which matter), therefore Rittenhouse was racist for shooting three men "whom he thinks are white" as Tennessee Coates would put it. Huber, Rosenbaum and Grosskreutz became black in that moment, while Rittenhouse remained white. Critical race theory as taught in law schools only would dictate that long established laws regarding self-defense inherited from our English jurist forbears are pretexts instituted by the powerful (white) in order to harm and subjugate the weak (whites who instantly became black, blacks). So contra critics of Racheal Dolezal, racial transubstantiation can indeed occur, but not by imitating blacks in speech, dress, hair, and darkening one's skin or declaring it as with transsexualism. It happens by choosing to become a victim of whiteness one's self when given a choice to retreat into whiteness or stand with black bodies. This is definitely not religious mumbo jumbo bastardizing vestigial elements of Christianity.

    We've also seen people like black cops become white - one of the four evil racist Minneapolis cops who racistly murdered George Floyd was a light skinned "black body" as the sage Tennessee Coates would put it (together with one Hmong of all things). But his occupation made him "white adjacent" and a participant in a "white supremacist system" so he was racist against a black guy despite being black himself. If you ask "should we fire all black cops then?" the answer is no, at least not until you get rid of them all. In his moment of truth, which you may have thought was a routine low level arrest met with disproportionate resistance (you would, of course, be wrong), Officer Kueng sought the safety and prestige of whiteness in siding with his colleagues by participation in the destruction of Floyd's black body. A reverse transubstantiation occurred here from black to white, so it's not accurate to say "hey, wasn't one of the cops you're accusing of racism black and another Hmong, does this sound like racism to you?" This is silly because Kueng and Thao lost their BIPOC status magically in that instant so they're white now. It's a shame they couldn't apply for loans without collateral or credit after becoming white but before getting charged with murder - it's one of the perks of whiteness that other white people just give you money without reasonable assurances of repayment. See also, Tennessee Coates' wonderful work on "redlining."

    You may have come to suspect that "white" is just a ruling class synonym for "bad, evil, or cruel," and "black" is just a synonym for "good, innocent, or valuable" and that the question is therefore "who has the power to apply these labels and spin narratives out of contrary facts?," but that's your whiteness talking! If you "do the work" (preferably by attending a lavishly funded two hour, half hour talk by Tennessee Coates) and "interrogate your whiteness" you will find that this is all on the up and up and in no way a ridiculous game used to control people through coercion and shaming.

    Blacks are slowly going missing in the US. Pure blacks almost no longer exist in the US population. All blacks today have the equivalent of 1 white grandparent.

    Most mixed-race blacks are descendants of white slave owners and black slaves. However, these mixed-race children then had offspring that split in two directions, because the end of slavery meant master-slave miscegenation was no longer possible. The mixed-race blacks either married whites and their black genes became diluted with the later addition of white genes, or else the mixed-race people married purer blacks, and their genes became blacker up until around 1960 or so, when social disapproval of mixed black-white marriages began to decline.

    A small percentage of whites show a very small admixture of black genes, say around 1 percent. Blacks today have an average of around 24% white genes. You could call this the house slave genetic effect. House slaves were often the parents of white-black miscegenation, and the offspring were treated better and given lighter work inside the plantation house instead of being made to labor in the fields. House slaves often tried to pass for white after the Civil War.

    But as a warning to liberals: The percentages make clear the direction in which breeding is going. Black genes are vanishing.

    24% white genes means that nearly ALL US blacks have the equivalent of 1 white grandparent. That means the house slaves, who were half white, bred down with pure blacks throughout the 20th century just one more step, but absolutely no farther. They did their utmost to either marry white, mixed race, or just didn't have children. It also mean pure blacks did their utmost to breed as white as they could. Pure blacks have almost vanished from the US population, but pure whites are as common as dirt.

    In 3-4 more generations, the tiny percentage of black genes in some whites will have vanished with more white-to-white marriages, and blacks keep trying to decrease their own black genes and increase their white genes. Everyone is trending towards becoming more and more white.

    It means every black in the US now has house slave ancestry--and likely ALL blacks have white slave master ancestry by now. Everyone is running away from black genes. The two populations in the US have become 2 distinct castes. One is pure white, and the other is pure mix trying to breed itself more and more white.

    The trend is clear. Black genes are being bred out of the US entirely, although the process is slow. Even today, when you see someone a black marry a white, keep in mind that black is likely to be already 24% white, and the white 100% white. The offspring will be more than half white. If these offspring follow the trends of their ancestors, they will try to marry as white as possible, either a pure white or a mixed-race, doing their utmost to further decrease the percentage of black genes their descendants have.

    The usually reliable Mission Impossible dipped its toe into wokeness with a 1970 episode where they bring down a brutal apartheid security chief -- by convincing him he's descended from blacks and is actually turning black! The blatantly stupid episode was clearly inspired by the South Africa and Rhodesia hysterics of that time. I'm almost embarrassed to mention it but its more clear evidence that racial apologia usually equals bad drama

    Star Trek's iconic half-black/half white episode in contrast does a surprising job of even-handedness -- the minority member and the alleged oppressor are both tainted and responsible for their planet's bloodshed

    I'd like to see the Jennifer O'Neill of Scanners replace Summer of '42 Jennifer O'Neill and zap smart ass Gary Grimes with the psychic power endowed to her by Patrick McGoohan's vaccine-like drug. Maybe David Cronenberg can loan her out. Don't worry about Gary getting his cumuppins: he dies in a bloody shootout with Lee Marvin in The Spikes Gang. Although that occurred seven years before the events of Scanners which leaves timeline problems.

    https://news.sky.com/story/raf-pauses-job-offers-for-white-men-to-meet-impossible-diversity-targets-12674409

    The head of RAF recruitment has resigned in protest at an “effective pause” on offering jobs to white male recruits in favour of women and ethnic minorities, defence sources have claimed.

    The senior female officer apparently handed in her notice in recent days amid concerns that any such restrictions on hiring, however temporary and limited, could undermine the fighting strength of the Royal Air Force (RAF), the sources said.

    They said the service was attempting to hit “impossible” diversity targets.

    Successive governments have been challenging all three armed services – the RAF, the army and the Royal Navy – for years to improve their diversity statistics in what has traditionally been a predominantly white, male profession.

    It is a goal championed by defence chiefs.

    Admiral Sir Tony Radakin, the head of the armed forces, used his first public speech in-post last December to stress the importance of striving for better diversity.

    He said this was not “about wokefulness. It is about woefulness. The woefulness of too few women. The woefulness of not reflecting the ethnic, religious and cognitive diversity of our nation.”

    The MOD has announced it aims to increase the ratio of female recruits coming into the armed forces in general to 30% by 2030 from around 12%.

    The RAF – which was the first of the services to open all roles to women and already has the highest ratio of females – is aiming to go further. It wants the ratio of female air force recruits to hit 40% by the end of the decade – more than double the current level.

    The target for ethnic minorities is to reach 20% of all air force recruits within the same timeframe, up from around 10%.

In 1942 summer, US armed forces were fighting in the Pacific and preparing for the autumn invasion of North Africa.

    American air operations in Europe began in the summer of 1942:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eighth_Air_Force

    Regular combat operations by the VIII Bomber Command began on 17 August 1942, when the 97th Bombardment Group flew twelve Boeing B-17E Flying Fortresses on the first VIII Bomber Command heavy bomber mission of the war from RAF Grafton Underwood, attacking the Rouen-Sotteville marshalling yards in France. Colonel Frank A. Armstrong may have been the commander of the 97th, but at the time of the raid, not yet left seat qualified. On this mission, he sat in the co-pilot's seat of the lead B-17, Butcher Shop[8][self-published source] The pilot in command and leader of this historic mission was Paul Tibbets, who on 6 August 1945, dropped the first Atomic Bomb, Little Boy, on Hiroshima from the Boeing B-29 Superfortress, Enola Gay.
     
    So this Herman Raucher guy was a literal "Jody". The fact that so many men get cuckolded when they go off to war can perhaps be taken as indication of what a raw deal war usually is for the soldier.

    I don't know about universal but in general infidelity among women (especially when their husbands are away at war) is far from rare. I forget the %s but in studies of "failure of paternity" a significant % of children were not fathered by their mother's husbands. Islamic society is obsessed with keeping women locked up for this reason.

    Psychologically, people react to extremely bad news in a variety of ways, some of them extremely bad, so I can imagine that some % of women (and men) would react in this way.

    I would have to guess that the larger # of claimants didn't reflect the actual # of such incidents but rather that people love to claim celebrity status. IIRC, there were a number of people who claimed to be the man and the woman in the famous picture of a sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square on VJ Day. Most of them were lying since it could have only been 1 sailor and 1 nurse.

    but Cape Cod in 1942 wasn’t exactly densely settled and US war casualties at that time were relatively light
     
    It was Nantucket, so an even smaller pool of supposed “Dorothys”.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summer_of_%2742#Factual_basis

    On the night memorialized in the film, Raucher randomly came to visit her, unaware his arrival was just minutes after she received notification of her husband's death. She was confused and upset, had been drinking heavily, and repeatedly called Raucher by her husband's name. Although both ultimately disrobed, contrary to popular perception, sexual intercourse did not occur. Raucher admitted this in a 2002 interview saying it was mostly holding, but in the movie “We let you think what you want.”
     

    Classic merchant-dizing! An honestly plotted movie and book would have been titled Nantucket Blueballs. Donald Trump has said that avoiding STDs in his ‘80s fornicating adventures was his “personal Vietnam”, perhaps getting hot’n’bothered by a Nantucket shiksa was Raucher’s personal Shoah.

    The most troubling thing to me was less the story itself than all the letters the writer received from women claiming to be “Dorothy”.

    LOL, Occam’s razor says no: They were old wanna-be groupies of the author / crazy fame seekers / romantic fantasists. Don’t “believe all women”. Cheating was/is a thing, certainly, but fame and fantasy are the salient motivations in those later false “Dorothy” claims.

    Ask normie whites if they are going to be genocided out of existence, and they will generally say what the hell are you even babbling about. It makes for a great rallying cry for “good whites” against the “bad whites”. So, must all white people from your perspective think exactly the same way you do about the “race question”, lest they be deemed a “race traitor”?

    Furthermore, I’ve heard this rage by “good whites” for over 50 years how they are being snuffed out by Jews and their mystery meat pets.

    Imagine a world where all those who claim to be "People of Color" start waking up ... black! Hilarity ensues.

    Think of the horror at the reformed synagogue when all the Jews who've have claimed they "aren't white" start turning black. The great "Jewish-black alliance" becoming reality. "My parents survived the Holocaust and now this!"

    And then on to "allies". Yard-signers start waking up black! And watch how fast those yard signs come down. But ... it does no good.

    [Strong jawed white hero] "If you voted for Joe Biden, it's probably going to happen to you."

    And the hilarious angst: "But i love my hair!"

    This stuff writes itself. And is damn funny. I'd actually be willing be out of my leather reclined and amble on down to the theatre to watch this one.



    Of course, you can keep going. Where progressively everyone turns black. Eventually even the stormfronters are waking up black.

    But then in even "black world" someone everything is not equal....

    The new blacks generally behave differently than the old blacks. The do better in school and on the job. Their neighborhoods are nicer. And people develop some slang for the real "descended from Africans" blacks--"affers". ...

  18. So what would actually happen, in the US at least, is people frantically trying to retain their privilege. The government mandates you answer questions about whether you were originally black or not. Some wokes will love it and start acting black, others will be horrified as they try to figure out who is an ex-white, and who is really oppressed. Most people just don’t care, but won’t listen to black excuses anymore.

    Like all interventions that aim at a different problem, it will not benefit any actual brown or black people. They now have fewer excuses for failure. If you actual measure how Traditional Black people fair under the uniform skin color condition, it’s worse in every way. Now every unarmed man killed by police is just black on black. No one is sympathetic to work place discrimination based on inability to come on time, speak properly, I want someone to write this as proper novel, that actual tries to envision what would happen.

    For his follow-on triumph, perhaps Hamid could write a sequel that centers on themes of ancestry, caste, jati, religion, and OTC skin care products in the Indian Subcontinent. I’d anticipate that it would illuminate his ignorance of these subjects — but as you pointed out, Hamid has already shown that the right kind of thoughtlessness is a Feature for the literary set, in The Current Year.

Then — after Savannah graciously accepted her colleagues’ kudos for her hard-hitting Journalism (e.g. Savannah comparing Liz to Obi-Wan and The Donald to Darth) — it was onto a hard-hitting Exclusive segment about flight delays at some of America’s airports.

    Twelve (or so) minutes at the start of the show, no other voices present. Even for the Lester Holt network, it’s notable.

    ‘When he came up into the light of torches the wailing of the women ceased suddenly. Doramin did not lift his head, and Jim stood silent before him for a time. Then he looked to the left, and moved in that direction with measured steps. Dain Waris’s mother crouched at the head of the body, and the grey dishevelled hair concealed her face. Jim came up slowly, looked at his dead friend, lifting the sheet, than dropped it without a word. Slowly he walked back.

    ‘“He came! He came!” was running from lip to lip, making a murmur to which he moved. “He hath taken it upon his own head,” a voice said aloud. He heard this and turned to the crowd. “Yes. Upon my head.” A few people recoiled. Jim waited awhile before Doramin, and then said gently, “I am come in sorrow.” He waited again. “I am come ready and unarmed,” he repeated.

    ‘The unwieldy old man, lowering his big forehead like an ox under a yoke, made an effort to rise, clutching at the flintlock pistols on his knees. From his throat came gurgling, choking, inhuman sounds, and his two attendants helped him from behind. People remarked that the ring which he had dropped on his lap fell and rolled against the foot of the white man, and that poor Jim glanced down at the talisman that had opened for him the door of fame, love, and success within the wall of forests fringed with white foam, within the coast that under the western sun looks like the very stronghold of the night. Doramin, struggling to keep his feet, made with his two supporters a swaying, tottering group; his little eyes stared with an expression of mad pain, of rage, with a ferocious glitter, which the bystanders noticed; and then, while Jim stood stiffened and with bared head in the light of torches, looking him straight in the face, he clung heavily with his left arm round the neck of a bowed youth, and lifting deliberately his right, shot his son’s friend through the chest.

    ‘The crowd, which had fallen apart behind Jim as soon as Doramin had raised his hand, rushed tumultuously forward after the shot. They say that the white man sent right and left at all those faces a proud and unflinching glance. Then with his hand over his lips he fell forward, dead.

    And suddenly it became clear to him that what was tormenting him and would not be resolved was suddenly all resolved at once, on two sides, on ten sides, on all sides. He was sorry for them, he had to act so that it was not painful for them. To deliver them and deliver himself from these sufferings. “How good and how simple,” he thought. “And the pain?” he asked himself. “What’s. become of it? Where are you, pain?”
    He became attentive.
    “Yes, there it is. Well, then, let there be pain.
    “And death? Where is it?”
    He sought his old habitual fear of death and could not find it. Where was it? What death? There was no more fear because there was no more death.
    Instead of death there was light.
    “So that’s it!” he suddenly said aloud. “What joy!”
    For him all this happened in an instant and the significance of that instant never changed. For those present, his agony went on for two more hours. Something gurgled in his chest; his emaciated body kept twitching. Then the gurgling and wheezing gradually subsided.
    “It’s finished!” someone said over him.
    He heard those words and repeated them in his soul. “Death is finished,” he said to himself. “It is no more.”

    …and there is a Catskill eagle in some souls that can alike dive down into the blackest gorges, and soar out of them again and become invisible in the sunny spaces. And even if he forever flies within the gorge, that gorge is in the mountains; so that even in his lowest swoop the mountain eagle is still higher than the other birds upon the plain, even though they soar.”

    It was still quite light down below, but up where Oleg was it was twilight. The soft- and hard-class sleeper passengers were strolling along the platform, but in here people were sitting wherever they had managed to grab seats, arranging their things. Oleg stretched out full length. That’s good! It was terrible travelling forty-eight hours with your legs tucked under you in those converted goods-trucks. Nineteen men in a compartment like this would be terrible. Twenty-three would be still worse.

    The others hadn’t survived. But he had. He hadn’t even died of cancer.
    And now his exile was cracking like an eggshell.

    He remembered the komendant advising him to get married. They’d all be giving him advice like that soon.

    It was good to lie down. Good.

    The train shuddered and moved forward. It was only then that in his heart, or his soul, somewhere in his chest, in the deepest seat of his emotion, he was suddenly seized with anguish. He twisted his body and lay face down on his greatcoat, shut his eyes and thrust his face into the kitbag, spiky with loaves.

    The train went on and Kostoglotov’s boots dangled toes down over the corridor like a dead man’s.

    An evil man threw tobacco in the macaque-rhesus’s eyes.

    This was already done as a movie called Watermelon Man. The 1970 film was written by Herman Raucher, it tells the story of a bigoted white insurance salesman who wakes up one morning to find that he has become Black. The premise for the film was inspired by Kafka's Metamorphosis, and by John Howard Griffin's autobiographical Black Like Me. Godfrey Cambridge plays the role in whiteface for the first few minutes of the film, and then goes without the makeup when his character changes into a black man.

    Herman Raucher wrote a novel based on his screenplay, also called Watermelon Man. He is best known for writing the autobiographical screenplay and novel Summer of '42

    Here is the fact of the matter. Most white people make their own decisions about race and culture. They do not think they will be murdered out of existence or be reduced to Planet of the Apes status. We befriend and date and mate outside of our race. Not because we have been brainwashed by Jews, but rather because we critically think about the world around us and our place in it. And a young generation ages 13 to 25 understand race and culture in clear, concise terms based upon their experiences and discussions of those experiences.

    Now, if white peoples want to live amongst themselves, fine. They have that liberty. Just expect that there will be flak, similar to what minorities experience when they make their demands and whites get bent out of shape about it.

    Of course, in short order the pendulum swung to blackness on steroids and respectability politics were dropped, which ushered in the near total destruction of the black family, periods of massive urban bloodletting, and the establishment of make-work college degrees and jobs to cover up the reality that the promises of social reformers have all been unkept.

    Ask normie whites if they are going to be genocided out of existence, and they will generally say what the hell are you even babbling about. It makes for a great rallying cry for “good whites” against the “bad whites”. So, must all white people from your perspective think exactly the same way you do about the “race question”, lest they be deemed a “race traitor”?

    Furthermore, I’ve heard this rage by “good whites” for over 50 years how they are being snuffed out by Jews and their mystery meat pets. But all you and they seem to do is TALK about how to stop being grounded into hamburger meat. Are YOU ever going to do actually do something about it in a physical sense? The Orcs have already overrun the Shire, but you seem content just to hammer that point home rather than take up arms and fight. After all, there is this inevitable race war, and the “good whites” (aka your side) are morally justified to take out the evil “bad whites” (aka the enemy), right?

    But they do, in a similar manner as those white kids in the 1950s and 1960s who listened to “black music” and embraced Civil Rights leaders. And through their own interactions they found out that their parents fears about “darkies” were unfounded.

    This current generation of young people are hooked into social media. They express their ideas about race and culture in ways you personally disagree with. But 13 to 25 year olds have grown up with it and are accustomed to it. It’s their ballgame now, like it or not.

    He said yes, he made a wish. What is your wish? I wish I had brown skin and brown eyes like Antonio.

    I'm old enough to remember Summer of '42 being promoted and shown on television, but I was too young to understand what it was about, though I remember other boys making much of the condom-buying scene, which I also didn't get. Since I never saw (or read) it, I read the Wiki summary just now. The most troubling thing to me was less the story itself than all the letters the writer received from women claiming to be "Dorothy". Okay, I'm old enough now to understand that not every woman is a Penelope, but Cape Cod in 1942 wasn't exactly densely settled and US war casualties at that time were relatively light, so for there to be "over a dozen" women claiming to be the newlywed Cape Cod honeymooneress who beds a 15-year-old the same night as learning of her husband's death implies this must have been the near-universal practice. Crikey. Is it possible to suppose that morals have improved since then?

    Also, what was an American plane doing over France in the summer of 1942? I thought the US bombing of Europe didn't get underway until 1943. In 1942 summer, US armed forces were fighting in the Pacific and preparing for the autumn invasion of North Africa. Wiki's "Factual Basis" section makes a big deal of Now, Voyager not actually being in US theaters until autumn of 1942, yet US air combat over France strikes me as a bigger anachronism. Maybe it was a recon plane?

    American air operations in Europe began in the summer of 1942:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eighth_Air_Force

    Regular combat operations by the VIII Bomber Command began on 17 August 1942, when the 97th Bombardment Group flew twelve Boeing B-17E Flying Fortresses on the first VIII Bomber Command heavy bomber mission of the war from RAF Grafton Underwood, attacking the Rouen-Sotteville marshalling yards in France. Colonel Frank A. Armstrong may have been the commander of the 97th, but at the time of the raid, not yet left seat qualified. On this mission, he sat in the co-pilot’s seat of the lead B-17, Butcher Shop[8][self-published source] The pilot in command and leader of this historic mission was Paul Tibbets, who on 6 August 1945, dropped the first Atomic Bomb, Little Boy, on Hiroshima from the Boeing B-29 Superfortress, Enola Gay.

    You didn’t do enough research, Mr. Sailer.

    https://www.spiked-online.com/2022/08/15/this-war-on-whiteness-is-taking-us-backwards/amp/

    —At present, and certainly in The Last White Man, the implication is ‘whiteness’ needs to be eradicated so as to achieve that post-racial utopia in which every man is judged by the content of his character, rather than the colour of his skin. Although increasingly he is judged primarily on the colour of his skin, rather than merit, talent and ability, to achieve the required quotas. Unless the French writer’s racial theory gathers momentum, we must assume it is ‘whiteness’ that’s being eradicated here rather than white people. Clearly they are needed to be the patsy, the fall guy; to be accountable for white supremacy; to benefit from white privilege; to be accused of cultural appropriation. Susan Sontag launched this theme back in 1967 in the Partisan Review, declaring that ‘the white race is the cancer of human history’.

    Academics on social media pick up the baton and run with it on Twitter in the present. Those with names you can’t be bothered to learn, and profile pictures you’d prefer not to linger on, who tweet on abolishing whiteness. To these figures the purpose of white people is to play the honky Uncle Tom, with the cake-walking and eye-rolling replaced by raising the fist and taking the knee. But what if – as some people intimate, with some trepidation – rather than simply acquiescing, they decide to take pride in their history and affirm their selfhood. In the manner that Malcolm X suggested, races, like individuals, need to do.

    **It’s a problematic development, a regressive step that could result in deeper division. But, ultimately, it is not just white people who are tired of the anti-white trend taking hold. A variety of races and hues are united against the grifters and hustlers pushing this narrative because it’s a nice little earner, and it raises the profile of those with little else to recommend them. This solidarity alone reveals how much we’ve evolved and matured in the matter of race since Black Like Me was published. It’s a more positive indication of how far we’ve progressed than a 21st-century novel about a white man who wakes up black.**

    So, essentially, Mr. Sailer is not a fan of the book. Color me shocked!

    Well, woke white women like to imagine that they aren't part of the 'whiteness' problem, rather than the the ones maintaining its existence. And non-white men ( I think the author is correct here; there are really only two types of people now, white and non-white) fear and resent white men, but they also really dig white women.

(Of, course Whoopie Goldberg got in trouble for emphasizing ‘race’ with her whole Holocaust remarks and the ADL got caught redefining ‘racism’ in real time but in practice we don’t really limit it’s conceptual use to ‘race’ but any biologically definable population against any other definable biological population)

    What we really mean is ‘racism’ means any of the above plus any kind of implicit or explicit ethnocentrism or collective political or social actions or expressions of collective interests by the core or native population in a Western country. So with no legitimate way for whites in the US to articulate collective interests (Partly a consequence of the great migrations making ‘white’ not an ethnic term with, if anything WASP interests considered even more taboo) then in that vacuum viscous anti-white hatred will be tolerated since nobody, not even non-whites are allowed to counter it. The famous alt-right slogan of ‘anti-racism = anti-white’.

    This is partly because the dynamic of whites as a hyper-majority and whose interests can’t be significantly impacted by this rhetoric is still ingrained both in memory and by psychological grooming of younger generations under older generations for whom this was the reality. Into this the dominance of Jewish intellectuals in academia and the media just makes it even more ingrained.

    As we have seen with ‘Russiagate’ turning the traditionally anti-war progressive liberals into neocons on Russia leading to no ability to articulate a peaceful resolution to the ethnic civil war in Ukraine, an attempt to avoid a Russian invasion or to negotiate peace with no rhetoric breaks, if there is no opposition to something that only has a target of aggression rather than definable objectives, it will simple continue to go attacking the target without limit.

    Here a Turkish woman born in Australia explains why she is triggered that the celebrations of ANZAC Day in Australia (Still quite prominent since the sense of national identity of Australia is partly bound up in the sense that ANZAC soldiers weren’t treated as well as Britons, signifying their creation of a new, distinct ethnicity.) don’t celebrate the Turkish soldiers who died too. Tellingly the poem has the line ‘Aussie girls, so pretty but so disrespectful’ (In the context of the poem their ‘disrespect’ is the 11 year olds not observing the moment of silence of their Hijabi classmate as she stands to attention to mourn the dead of her fatherland, her real fatherland, Turkey, that is) The amount of resentment (Despite all the photos of her and her classmates decades ago being all smiles) is palpable.

    ‘She wants to break Liz’s nose‘ (Cue shot of her punching her palm) And this is on the ABC proper, I thought the SBS was the quite place Anglo-Celts would never see that you broadcast this.

    ‘Her history teacher, Mr Pavros, who hates the Turks, for sure‘ (Holy moly, when I heard that line I thought the poem would end with her saying she grew up to let go of such anger, nope, Greeks are now more privileged than Turks, their brutal oppressors and ethnic cleansers. The ABC, endorsing hardline Turkish nationalism, because it’s the current year you Greek cockroaches!)

    Again if you’re going to be having any mass immigration at all (There isn’t a single Western country that given what it’s had the last 40 years that should allow any of any type) then maybe a simple rule of thumb should be “Are they people from that country more clannish, low trust or ethnocentric than the natives or core population of the receiving country?” If the answer isn’t “No” then it’s tourists only.

    This logic of ‘racism’ leads only to the conclusion, whites only have collective responsibilities (To non-whites) and collective guilt. Non-whites and immigrants only have collective interests and collective pride.

    Replies: @Jack D

    It’s hard to call it an “adaption” because it’s probably the original setup – if it is an a adaption it was made millions of years ago even before humans were human.

    The “adaption” is not having pigmented skin.

    One theory is that this was to allow white people to make more Vitamin D in cloudy northern climates.

    Another theory is that white skin is a form of sexual selection like peacock feathers (or large breasts on human females) because fairness is a sign of youth/fertility. In sunny places, this sexual selection competition couldn’t run its full course because at some point you would sunburn to death but in the cold north and protected by clothing the race to the bottom could continue until all skin pigment was completely gone.

    Clearly not the original setup. Look at any chimp. Actually, pretty much any furry mammal.

    As I understand it, the current thinking is about a million or so years ago, when we really started full upright walking and colonizing/hunting the savannah. As the fur has gone away, we have to evolve black skin to protect from UV.

    Then white comes roaring back when we move out of tropical regions, and need to make vitamin D, even in temperate zone fall, winter, spring. Selection especially driven by pregnancy in these conditions. And yeah, once it gets going there is probably some sexual selection piling on.

    BTW, again with our indoor lives folks should supplement with vitamin D. Especially during winter time, especially if you are an indoor person or in a dark/cloudy clime ... like the PNW.

    Sounds like wonderful news, except for the article’s emphasis on the Great Replacement’s next phase: organ appropriation.

    “It’s very exciting to think about how this could potentially impact so many lives.”

    People from minority ethnic groups often wait a year longer for a transplant than white patients, and so the study could have particular implications for them, experts say.

    People from minority communities are more likely to have type B blood and with low donation rates from these populations there are not enough kidneys to go around.

    In 2020-21, just over 9% of total organ donations in the UK came from black and minority ethnic donors while black and minority ethnic patients make up 33% of the kidney transplant waiting list.

    I'm old enough to remember Summer of '42 being promoted and shown on television, but I was too young to understand what it was about, though I remember other boys making much of the condom-buying scene, which I also didn't get. Since I never saw (or read) it, I read the Wiki summary just now. The most troubling thing to me was less the story itself than all the letters the writer received from women claiming to be "Dorothy". Okay, I'm old enough now to understand that not every woman is a Penelope, but Cape Cod in 1942 wasn't exactly densely settled and US war casualties at that time were relatively light, so for there to be "over a dozen" women claiming to be the newlywed Cape Cod honeymooneress who beds a 15-year-old the same night as learning of her husband's death implies this must have been the near-universal practice. Crikey. Is it possible to suppose that morals have improved since then?

    Also, what was an American plane doing over France in the summer of 1942? I thought the US bombing of Europe didn't get underway until 1943. In 1942 summer, US armed forces were fighting in the Pacific and preparing for the autumn invasion of North Africa. Wiki's "Factual Basis" section makes a big deal of Now, Voyager not actually being in US theaters until autumn of 1942, yet US air combat over France strikes me as a bigger anachronism. Maybe it was a recon plane?

    If I recall correctly, historically this was estimated to be roughly 14%. I don't know how you arrive at this number where women have a very substantial incentive to lie about it forever. But my guess is that before the modern era of sex regulation there was a large gray area between "not rape" on one end and "rape" on the other, with lots of coercion and acquiescence in that gray area. You're law trained so of course you recall all of the common law elements of rape and doctrines about a "hue and cry" in assessing rape allegations. It's probably just the case that powerful/wealthier/older/higher status men could get away with having a lot of fun in the gray area, and younger/lower status women had to acquiesce. So my surmise is that a substantial proportion of bastards were the result of such "gray area" not-rape rapes. If you're a girl who finds herself in such a situation, your best option is to find a fool, bed him, wed him, and have him play the proud father to your cuckoo.

    Islamic societies' outsized obsession and resultant cloistering of women is probably a product of a long polygamist culture - there are lots of leftover men without prospect of wives.

    Psychologically, people react to extremely bad news in a variety of ways, some of them extremely bad, so I can imagine that some % of women (and men) would react in this way.
     
    Years ago there was a thing on PBS about a young woman who was obviously half black, but born to liberal Jewish parents where everybody pretended she was the product of the marriage including the cuckolded father. The mother was interviewed and said that the excuses were silly like that the father's family had one somewhat remote Sicilian ancestor in the Ashkenazi family tree, and therefore the girl just looked Sicilian. Evidently the father had a good relationship with his non-daughter and at least pretended to be her father until he died. I guess that's one way to deal with it.

    Here is the fact of the matter. Most white people make their own decisions about race and culture. They do not think they will be murdered out of existence or be reduced to Planet of the Apes status. We befriend and date and mate outside of our race. Not because we have been brainwashed by Jews, but rather because we critically think about the world around us and our place in it. And a young generation ages 13 to 25 understand race and culture in clear, concise terms based upon their experiences and discussions of those experiences.

    Trigger warning: French post war avant-garde absurdist blah blah blah …

    Over the course of three acts, the inhabitants of a small, provincial French town turn into rhinoceroses; ultimately the only human who does not succumb to this mass metamorphosis is the central character, Bérenger, a flustered everyman figure who is initially criticized in the play for his drinking, tardiness, and slovenly lifestyle and then, later, for his increasing paranoia and obsession with the rhinoceroses. The play is often read as a response and criticism to the sudden upsurge of Fascism and Nazism during the events preceding World War II, and explores the themes of conformity, culture, fascism, responsibility, logic, mass movements, mob mentality, philosophy and morality.

    Hamid's Last Whiteman seems to have the same themes, but does not end up in the same place as the post WWII literature did. Oddly both Hamid, I am assuming as I did not read his book, and the post WWII writers were examining the same themes extremism but Hamid seems to endorse conformism to whole.

    Rhinoceros (French: Rhinocéros) is a play by Eugène Ionesco, written in 1959.

    The Body Snatchers is a science fiction novel by American writer Jack Finney, originally serialized in Collier's magazine in November–December 1954 and published in book form the following year.

    I always figured the high brow high minded Rhinocéros predated the Body Snatchers, a mid brow serialized sci fi story, but it turns out Body Snatchers was first. I wonder if this was a common post WWII idea.

    Body snatchers also had an underlying biological scientific rationalization. Does Hamid provide a rationalization, like a virus?

    Pale-skinned militant Krauts.

    They lost their accursed whiteness when they allied and risked their bodies for “black bodies” and the black lives animating them (which matter), therefore Rittenhouse was racist for shooting three men “whom he thinks are white” as Tennessee Coates would put it. Huber, Rosenbaum and Grosskreutz became black in that moment, while Rittenhouse remained white. Critical race theory as taught in law schools only would dictate that long established laws regarding self-defense inherited from our English jurist forbears are pretexts instituted by the powerful (white) in order to harm and subjugate the weak (whites who instantly became black, blacks). So contra critics of Racheal Dolezal, racial transubstantiation can indeed occur, but not by imitating blacks in speech, dress, hair, and darkening one’s skin or declaring it as with transsexualism. It happens by choosing to become a victim of whiteness one’s self when given a choice to retreat into whiteness or stand with black bodies. This is definitely not religious mumbo jumbo bastardizing vestigial elements of Christianity.

    We’ve also seen people like black cops become white – one of the four evil racist Minneapolis cops who racistly murdered George Floyd was a light skinned “black body” as the sage Tennessee Coates would put it (together with one Hmong of all things). But his occupation made him “white adjacent” and a participant in a “white supremacist system” so he was racist against a black guy despite being black himself. If you ask “should we fire all black cops then?” the answer is no, at least not until you get rid of them all. In his moment of truth, which you may have thought was a routine low level arrest met with disproportionate resistance (you would, of course, be wrong), Officer Kueng sought the safety and prestige of whiteness in siding with his colleagues by participation in the destruction of Floyd’s black body. A reverse transubstantiation occurred here from black to white, so it’s not accurate to say “hey, wasn’t one of the cops you’re accusing of racism black and another Hmong, does this sound like racism to you?” This is silly because Kueng and Thao lost their BIPOC status magically in that instant so they’re white now. It’s a shame they couldn’t apply for loans without collateral or credit after becoming white but before getting charged with murder – it’s one of the perks of whiteness that other white people just give you money without reasonable assurances of repayment. See also, Tennessee Coates’ wonderful work on “redlining.”

    You may have come to suspect that “white” is just a ruling class synonym for “bad, evil, or cruel,” and “black” is just a synonym for “good, innocent, or valuable” and that the question is therefore “who has the power to apply these labels and spin narratives out of contrary facts?,” but that’s your whiteness talking! If you “do the work” (preferably by attending a lavishly funded two hour, half hour talk by Tennessee Coates) and “interrogate your whiteness” you will find that this is all on the up and up and in no way a ridiculous game used to control people through coercion and shaming.

In one of his last books, the late Theodore H. White wrote that in order to combat the effects of STEM programs which had taken wing in the mid to late 50s the liberal arts departments, fearing being de-emphasized (and possibly de-funded) had to retaliate by producing arcane theories of their own ("deconstruction" etc) which only the "elite" could understand. In other words, a kind of latter-day gnosticism. This was their answer to such as General and Special Relativity, Quantum Theory etc. That it was mostly bullshit meant nothing.

    Wow, that would really be a trip when your kid got home from the doctor’s office (I sense a remake of “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner”). Are there “whiteness blockers” that would help prepare you for blackness? Or would they take away the “blackness blockers” that whites have to keep themselves from being a healthy black?

    This was already done as a movie called Watermelon Man. The 1970 film was written by Herman Raucher, it tells the story of a bigoted white insurance salesman who wakes up one morning to find that he has become Black. The premise for the film was inspired by Kafka's Metamorphosis, and by John Howard Griffin's autobiographical Black Like Me. Godfrey Cambridge plays the role in whiteface for the first few minutes of the film, and then goes without the makeup when his character changes into a black man.

    Herman Raucher wrote a novel based on his screenplay, also called Watermelon Man. He is best known for writing the autobiographical screenplay and novel Summer of '42

    The best part of Summer of ’42 was when Herman Raucher said lots of women stepped forward and claimed they were the Jennifer O’Neill character after the movie came out. But only ONE letter he recognized as the actual person because she named the song that was playing.

    That forever marked in my mind that there are plenty of nutty women in America that are willing to claim anything, and that trusting what a person states because they are female is literal insanity.

    Mitchel Legrand did the music for ’42, and during the French military parade that Trump attended in Paris, they played a few bars from the movie in honor of Legrand who had died.

    I don't know about universal but in general infidelity among women (especially when their husbands are away at war) is far from rare.

    Psychologically, people react to extremely bad news in a variety of ways, some of them extremely bad, so I can imagine that some % of women (and men) would react in this way.

    I would have to guess that the larger # of claimants didn't reflect the actual # of such incidents but rather that people love to claim celebrity status.

Most of them were lying since it could have only been 1 sailor and 1 nurse.

    If I recall correctly, historically this was estimated to be roughly 14%. I don’t know how you arrive at this number where women have a very substantial incentive to lie about it forever. But my guess is that before the modern era of sex regulation there was a large gray area between “not rape” on one end and “rape” on the other, with lots of coercion and acquiescence in that gray area. You’re law trained so of course you recall all of the common law elements of rape and doctrines about a “hue and cry” in assessing rape allegations. It’s probably just the case that powerful/wealthier/older/higher status men could get away with having a lot of fun in the gray area, and younger/lower status women had to acquiesce. So my surmise is that a substantial proportion of bastards were the result of such “gray area” not-rape rapes. If you’re a girl who finds herself in such a situation, your best option is to find a fool, bed him, wed him, and have him play the proud father to your cuckoo.

    Islamic societies’ outsized obsession and resultant cloistering of women is probably a product of a long polygamist culture – there are lots of leftover men without prospect of wives.

    Years ago there was a thing on PBS about a young woman who was obviously half black, but born to liberal Jewish parents where everybody pretended she was the product of the marriage including the cuckolded father. The mother was interviewed and said that the excuses were silly like that the father’s family had one somewhat remote Sicilian ancestor in the Ashkenazi family tree, and therefore the girl just looked Sicilian. Evidently the father had a good relationship with his non-daughter and at least pretended to be her father until he died. I guess that’s one way to deal with it.

    A year or two ago, I recall a study that used DNA testing and extensive genealogical records to map non-paternity in a number of family trees. Rural England, 1900 to 2000, perhaps? They came up with a much lower number, in the range of 1% or 2% per generation. If I can find the paper, I'll return with a link.

    I was going to respond to Jack's open ended nonsense claim. Now you've come up with a laughable figure.

    There was some recent b.s. study claiming 20+% non-paternity from DNA test. But guess what it was looking at guys who were going in and getting their kids paternity tested. LOL.

    No, the serious attempts to put a figure on this come up with numbers like ... 2%.

    A lot of people just seem dopey about what the world was like--had to be like--in the before time. Social rules--and sanctions--are in place to precisely to preserve the necessary incentives/institutions of civilization. Marriage--and especially women not screwing around--was treated seriously otherwise why should men show up to work to provide for wives and children? Criminals were punished. Homosexuals were not celebrated--and occasionally harshly punished.

    BTW, even today--with autos and internet and female employment providing opportunities out the wazoo the overwhelming majority of married couples are faithful. (More so for 1st marriages.) And the number of "non-paternity" events would be small--low single digits and most likely be marriage already toast, divorce on the way.

    Here's a 2019 GNXP post describing a study of the Netherlands. From the Abstract:


    Specifically, we observe that estimated Extra-Pair Paternity rates among married couples varied by more than an order of magnitude, from 0.4% to 5.9%, and peaked among families with a low socioeconomic background living in densely populated cities of the late 19th century. Our results support theoretical predictions that social context can strongly affect the outcomes of sexual conflict in human populations by modulating the incentives and opportunities for engaging in extra-pair relationships.
     
    Razib comments:

    Basically, prosperous farmers in less dense areas are the least likely to exhibit EPP. I think the Dutch study probably generalizes to most Eurasian societies. In particular, the male-dominated peasant societies that emerged in the last 10,000 years have likely been characterized by low EPP.

Okay, I'm old enough now to understand that not every woman is a Penelope, but Cape Cod in 1942 wasn't exactly densely settled and US war casualties at that time were relatively light, so for there to be "over a dozen" women claiming to be the newlywed Cape Cod honeymooneress who beds a 15-year-old the same night as learning of her husband's death implies this must have been the near-universal practice. Crikey. Is it possible to suppose that morals have improved since then?

    Also, what was an American plane doing over France in the summer of 1942? I thought the US bombing of Europe didn't get underway until 1943. In 1942 summer, US armed forces were fighting in the Pacific and preparing for the autumn invasion of North Africa. Wiki's "Factual Basis" section makes a big deal of Now, Voyager not actually being in US theaters until autumn of 1942, yet US air combat over France strikes me as a bigger anachronism.

    On the night memorialized in the film, Raucher randomly came to visit her, unaware his arrival was just minutes after she received notification of her husband’s death. She was confused and upset, had been drinking heavily, and repeatedly called Raucher by her husband’s name. Although both ultimately disrobed, contrary to popular perception, sexual intercourse did not occur. Raucher admitted this in a 2002 interview saying it was mostly holding, but in the movie “We let you think what you want.”

    Classic merchant-dizing! An honestly plotted movie and book would have been titled Nantucket Blueballs. Donald Trump has said that avoiding STDs in his ‘80s fornicating adventures was his “personal Vietnam”, perhaps getting hot’n’bothered by a Nantucket shiksa was Raucher’s personal Shoah.

    Blacks are slowly going missing in the US. Pure blacks almost no longer exist in the US population. All blacks today have the equivalent of 1 white grandparent.

    Most mixed-race blacks are descendants of white slave owners and black slaves. However, these mixed-race children then had offspring that split in two directions, because the end of slavery meant master-slave miscegenation was no longer possible. The mixed-race blacks either married whites and their black genes became diluted with the later addition of white genes, or else the mixed-race people married purer blacks, and their genes became blacker up until around 1960 or so, when social disapproval of mixed black-white marriages began to decline.

    A small percentage of whites show a very small admixture of black genes, say around 1 percent. Blacks today have an average of around 24% white genes. You could call this the house slave genetic effect. House slaves were often the parents of white-black miscegenation, and the offspring were treated better and given lighter work inside the plantation house instead of being made to labor in the fields. House slaves often tried to pass for white after the Civil War.

    But as a warning to liberals: The percentages make clear the direction in which breeding is going. Black genes are vanishing.

    24% white genes means that nearly ALL US blacks have the equivalent of 1 white grandparent. That means the house slaves, who were half white, bred down with pure blacks throughout the 20th century just one more step, but absolutely no farther. They did their utmost to either marry white, mixed race, or just didn’t have children. It also mean pure blacks did their utmost to breed as white as they could. Pure blacks have almost vanished from the US population, but pure whites are as common as dirt.

    In 3-4 more generations, the tiny percentage of black genes in some whites will have vanished with more white-to-white marriages, and blacks keep trying to decrease their own black genes and increase their white genes. Everyone is trending towards becoming more and more white.

    It means every black in the US now has house slave ancestry–and likely ALL blacks have white slave master ancestry by now. Everyone is running away from black genes. The two populations in the US have become 2 distinct castes. One is pure white, and the other is pure mix trying to breed itself more and more white.

    The trend is clear. Black genes are being bred out of the US entirely, although the process is slow. Even today, when you see someone a black marry a white, keep in mind that black is likely to be already 24% white, and the white 100% white. The offspring will be more than half white. If these offspring follow the trends of their ancestors, they will try to marry as white as possible, either a pure white or a mixed-race, doing their utmost to further decrease the percentage of black genes their descendants have.

    Sorry 237, this is incorrect. (At least what you are arguing.)

    Black American fertility is sub-replacement, but still higher than white fertility. And black fertility is very highly disgenic. Much more so than whites. "Eugenic" in blacks, correlates highly with "more white". The paper-bag-test passing gals--I know a few--are the ones who get degrees, have trouble landing a suitable--comparatively educated/successful--husband, and do not have children without one. In contrast the 90% African ghetto gals who are straight up too stupid to even manage birthcontrol get knocked up by whomever.

    You're certainly right there is quite a bit of white genetic inflow into the black population, but overall--where sticks and stones get rubbed together--it is the black genes that are selected for.


    If--if--there's a net reduction in the relative proportion of black genes in America, it is due to immigration--the influx of millions of Hispanics, not quite counterbalanced by the large--but much smaller--influx of blacks from Africa/Caribbean. But as Steve's "World's Most Important Graph" hints at ... the worst is yet to come.

    I get that. (BTW, there was a French documentary of the 1939-1940 Western Front that mentioned in passing how many ill-timed French births there were up to nine months after the British's hasty retreat back across the Channel. How French of them to bring up this aspect of war, I thought, even to their own disadvantage.) My point was more that I would be surprised if there were much more than one newly married war widow vacationing on Cape Cod in summer 1942. As you say, maybe the other letter writers just wanted attention, and that may well be true (though they must have been 60-ish at the time). I thought maybe the letter writers assumed a detail might have been changed to protect their identity, e.g. not Cape Cod, e.g. not widowed by combat in France, but otherwise conformed to the main story arc.

    The head of RAF recruitment has resigned in protest at an "effective pause" on offering jobs to white male recruits in favour of women and ethnic minorities, defence sources have claimed.

    The senior female officer apparently handed in her notice in recent days amid concerns that any such restrictions on hiring, however temporary and limited, could undermine the fighting strength of the Royal Air Force (RAF), the sources said.

    They said the service was attempting to hit "impossible" diversity targets.

    Successive governments have been challenging all three armed services - the RAF, the army and the Royal Navy - for years to improve their diversity statistics in what has traditionally been a predominantly white, male profession.

    It is a goal championed by defence chiefs.

    Admiral Sir Tony Radakin, the head of the armed forces, used his first public speech in-post last December to stress the importance of striving for better diversity.

    He said this was not "about wokefulness. It is about woefulness. The woefulness of too few women. The woefulness of not reflecting the ethnic, religious and cognitive diversity of our nation."

    The MOD has announced it aims to increase the ratio of female recruits coming into the armed forces in general to 30% by 2030 from around 12%.

    The RAF - which was the first of the services to open all roles to women and already has the highest ratio of females - is aiming to go further. It wants the ratio of female air force recruits to hit 40% by the end of the decade - more than double the current level.

    The target for ethnic minorities is to reach 20% of all air force recruits within the same timeframe, up from around 10%.

    But they do, in a similar manner as those white kids in the 1950s and 1960s who listened to “black music” and embraced Civil Rights leaders. And through their own interactions they found out that their parents fears about “darkies” were unfounded.

    This current generation of young people are hooked into social media. They express their ideas about race and culture in ways you personally disagree with. But 13 to 25 year olds have grown up with it and are accustomed to it. It’s their ballgame now, like it or not.

    “Unless you mean things like Nancy Pelosi’s much younger grandson saying (if we trust her on this, a big if) he wishes he were brown; he picked up from “his experiences in clear and concise terms” White bad, POC good.”

    Let’s offer the proper context shall we? She said:

    —And when he had his sixth birthday... he had a very close friend whose name is Antonio, he's from Guatemala. And he has beautiful tan skinned, beautiful brown eyes, and this was a proud day for me, because when my grandson blew out the candles on his cake, they said did you make a wish?

    He said yes, he made a wish. What is your wish? I wish I had brown skin and brown eyes like Antonio.

    So beautiful. So beautiful. The beauty is in the mix. The face of the future for our country is all-American. And that has many versions.—

    Pale-skinned militant Krauts.
     
    They lost their accursed whiteness when they allied and risked their bodies for "black bodies" and the black lives animating them (which matter), therefore Rittenhouse was racist for shooting three men "whom he thinks are white" as Tennessee Coates would put it. Huber, Rosenbaum and Grosskreutz became black in that moment, while Rittenhouse remained white. Critical race theory as taught in law schools only would dictate that long established laws regarding self-defense inherited from our English jurist forbears are pretexts instituted by the powerful (white) in order to harm and subjugate the weak (whites who instantly became black, blacks). So contra critics of Racheal Dolezal, racial transubstantiation can indeed occur, but not by imitating blacks in speech, dress, hair, and darkening one's skin or declaring it as with transsexualism. It happens by choosing to become a victim of whiteness one's self when given a choice to retreat into whiteness or stand with black bodies. This is definitely not religious mumbo jumbo bastardizing vestigial elements of Christianity.

    We've also seen people like black cops become white - one of the four evil racist Minneapolis cops who racistly murdered George Floyd was a light skinned "black body" as the sage Tennessee Coates would put it (together with one Hmong of all things). But his occupation made him "white adjacent" and a participant in a "white supremacist system" so he was racist against a black guy despite being black himself. If you ask "should we fire all black cops then?" the answer is no, at least not until you get rid of them all. In his moment of truth, which you may have thought was a routine low level arrest met with disproportionate resistance (you would, of course, be wrong), Officer Kueng sought the safety and prestige of whiteness in siding with his colleagues by participation in the destruction of Floyd's black body. A reverse transubstantiation occurred here from black to white, so it's not accurate to say "hey, wasn't one of the cops you're accusing of racism black and another Hmong, does this sound like racism to you?" This is silly because Kueng and Thao lost their BIPOC status magically in that instant so they're white now. It's a shame they couldn't apply for loans without collateral or credit after becoming white but before getting charged with murder - it's one of the perks of whiteness that other white people just give you money without reasonable assurances of repayment. See also, Tennessee Coates' wonderful work on "redlining."

    You may have come to suspect that "white" is just a ruling class synonym for "bad, evil, or cruel," and "black" is just a synonym for "good, innocent, or valuable" and that the question is therefore "who has the power to apply these labels and spin narratives out of contrary facts?," but that's your whiteness talking! If you "do the work" (preferably by attending a lavishly funded two hour, half hour talk by Tennessee Coates) and "interrogate your whiteness" you will find that this is all on the up and up and in no way a ridiculous game used to control people through coercion and shaming.

    I like this. This is an excellent example of the kind of thinking which is a product of liberal arts departments of the elite colleges and universities. In one of his last books, the late Theodore H. White wrote that in order to combat the effects of STEM programs which had taken wing in the mid to late 50s the liberal arts departments, fearing being de-emphasized (and possibly de-funded) had to retaliate by producing arcane theories of their own (“deconstruction” etc) which only the “elite” could understand. In other words, a kind of latter-day gnosticism. This was their answer to such as General and Special Relativity, Quantum Theory etc. That it was mostly bullshit meant nothing. To earnest, starry-eyed students in the Ivies etc. it was taken as gospel. That same crowd is now in the driver’s seat.

    https://news.sky.com/story/raf-pauses-job-offers-for-white-men-to-meet-impossible-diversity-targets-12674409

    The head of RAF recruitment has resigned in protest at an "effective pause" on offering jobs to white male recruits in favour of women and ethnic minorities, defence sources have claimed.

    The senior female officer apparently handed in her notice in recent days amid concerns that any such restrictions on hiring, however temporary and limited, could undermine the fighting strength of the Royal Air Force (RAF), the sources said.

    They said the service was attempting to hit "impossible" diversity targets.

    Successive governments have been challenging all three armed services - the RAF, the army and the Royal Navy - for years to improve their diversity statistics in what has traditionally been a predominantly white, male profession.

    It is a goal championed by defence chiefs.

    Admiral Sir Tony Radakin, the head of the armed forces, used his first public speech in-post last December to stress the importance of striving for better diversity.

    He said this was not "about wokefulness. It is about woefulness. The woefulness of too few women. The woefulness of not reflecting the ethnic, religious and cognitive diversity of our nation."

    The MOD has announced it aims to increase the ratio of female recruits coming into the armed forces in general to 30% by 2030 from around 12%.

    The RAF - which was the first of the services to open all roles to women and already has the highest ratio of females - is aiming to go further. It wants the ratio of female air force recruits to hit 40% by the end of the decade - more than double the current level.

    The target for ethnic minorities is to reach 20% of all air force recruits within the same timeframe, up from around 10%.

    This was already done as a movie called Watermelon Man. The 1970 film was written by Herman Raucher, it tells the story of a bigoted white insurance salesman who wakes up one morning to find that he has become Black. The premise for the film was inspired by Kafka's Metamorphosis, and by John Howard Griffin's autobiographical Black Like Me. Godfrey Cambridge plays the role in whiteface for the first few minutes of the film, and then goes without the makeup when his character changes into a black man.

    Herman Raucher wrote a novel based on his screenplay, also called Watermelon Man. He is best known for writing the autobiographical screenplay and novel Summer of '42

    This Hamid guy sounds like a talentless hack, trolling for PC points.

    A much more interesting premise would involve voluntary race switching. For example, what if they invented a pill that turned you into whatever race you wanted temporarily. How many blacks would switch to white? Would they chose to stay that way all or most of the time, or just occasionally? Would it solve all their perceived problems in life?

    Would white wokesters turn black for political solidarity and to destroy “whiteness”? Would wiggers and rednecks go black just to party it up and have more fun? Maybe the longer you stayed race-switched, the more you absorb the non-cosmetic racial traits as your “true self.” (The trans-whites would start talking in a honky voice and showing up to work on time; the trans-blacks would start stabbing anyone who stepped on their shoes, or whatever).

    Maybe everyone ends up choosing white, which totally ruins the brand. So the original whites (OWs) all secretly agree to switch to Samoan or something so they can keep themselves separate, and then that becomes the new high-status race. And everyone starts bitching about “Samoan-ness.”

    Neither of them thought they were telling the truth at any point though. Merely shifting the goal posts as reality caught up to the public.

    The plan was always to provoke Russia into invading to present a narrative that the Russians could never have been and can never be negotiated with leading to them being ejected from the West, cut Germany off from Russian gas (Removing anything blocking Germany going full neocon), degrade Russian conventional forces to make it harder for them to intervene in Syria, (This is the most important goal, as we see now with Turkey launching attacks too like Israel) allowing a new attack on it and making Ukraine dependent on the US/NATO with revanchist claims on Russia.

    Russia has failed, however to be much impacted by the sanctions/removal from Western financial systems (Wallstreet uncharacteristically tried to warn about this openly vis-a-vis SWIFT) has made the development of an alternative order by China/Russia a reality. It is the West which has been negatively impacted economically, not Russia. Meanwhile while the US has always wanted the nordstream gas removed as an influence on Germany to be less anti-Russia, they've gone too far and may induce total collapse of the existing pliant regimes in many European countries, Germany included. Russia has also failed to expand it's occupation into as large an area as they may have desired in terms of forcing them to keep large numbers of military forces pinned down in dealing with pacifying too many ethnic Ukrainians, the Russians have failed to swallow the proverbial porcupine so far. The neocons hoped that Russia would swallow as much of Ukraine as possible, it was actually their plan.

    Meanwhile China has been watching the US recklessly edge up the verge of nuclear war for the sake of Israeli aggression towards Syria and do nothing to avert but indeed push for the outbreak a massive war in Europe. The US may have all but declared war on Russia (A state which is powerful enough to beat Ukraine but not able to occupy much of it let alone be a threat to the rest of Europe or the thousands of miles away US) but they actually declared war on China. This has also been done at a bad time when the US has failed to decouple from China or build back up it's own industry. I've seen commenters here complain that China would be screwed because it needs US consumers for it's stuff as if the producer is the one who need the consumer more. (Much like the dumb assumptions vis-a-vis sanctions on Russia) In any case China has sequestered so much capital from the West that internal consumption makes up the bulk of it's production's fate now.

    And a Russia-China alliance is unbeatable, particularly by a West stuck with an anti-national parasitic elite and late stage democracy. It wasn't Putin who lost the war before it had begun, it was the West. When Henry Kissinger says the neocons fucked up, you know they really fucked up.

    I’m not sure here are any villains here, unless it’s the people who start wars.

    On the night memorialized in the film, Raucher randomly came to visit her, unaware his arrival was just minutes after she received notification of her husband’s death. She was confused and upset, had been drinking heavily, and repeatedly called Raucher by her husband’s name. Although both ultimately disrobed, contrary to popular perception, sexual intercourse did not occur. Raucher admitted this in a 2002 interview saying it was mostly holding, but in the movie “We let you think what you want.”

    An even more literal adaptation of Kafka's work was the plot of District 9 where the Afrikaans policeman tasked with policing the enclave of insectoid aliens who've landed in Johannesburg begins to transform into one.

    What's funny about District 9 is that it takes place after apartheid but was still solely taken by Western critics to be a metaphor about apartheid but the originally short film makes it very clear the original premise was for the aliens to be an allegory for the masses of immigrants, almost entirely illegal, who flooded into big South African cities from Zimbabwe, Nigeria and even other places after 1994. Shockingly 'racial nationalism' isn't really a thing, nationalism is and the local black populations who were still living in shocking poverty didn't appreciate these dynamic newcomers composed mostly of shiftless young men speaking alien languages who made their lives even harder.

    In the original short film Blomkamp made this is more clear with the aliens even wearing hoodies and having their lines cribbed from what you'd expect a shiftless illegal immigrant to say. Among the pox pops of people talking about the aliens there is at least one that isn't acted and is from a woman talking about the immigrants. Indeed it seems clear that his vision in Elysium is based on these massive movements of people living in shanty towns is inspired by this. (Actually almost all of his work is about the apocalyptic destruction of Earth by invaders or the degradation of society, makes you think...) But Western audiences didn't get the metaphor in District 9 and thought it was about apartheid. I guess he had to be more direct with Elysium.

It's only in 2022 that this policy has begun to be reversed and it has caused a total meltdown, mostly among wealthy whites it must be said. (And Julius Malema who is a weird racial nationalist who doesn't care where the black people come from or what they do so long as they drop the percentage white number down despite the proportion for the youngest age cohorts being just 5%)

    The recent flap is from the termination of the Zimbabwe Exemption Permit given out over 10 years ago when the numbers from Zimbabwe had become massive. It basically exempted 200k from being considered an illegal immigrant somewhat like the exemption given to Haitians in the US. It has finally be shot down in court. Most of the people going nuts about it were whites and the immigrants themselves. As whites in South African went from having a sense of ownership of the state to becoming a dwindling minority their collective strategies and interests have begun to resemble groups with similar statuses. See also the adoption of libertarian politics and multiculturalism by them.

    An even more literal adaptation of Kafka was District 9 where the Afrikaans policeman tasked with policing the insectoid aliens who’ve landed in Johannesburg begins to transform into one. What’s funny about District 9 is that it takes place after apartheid but was still solely taken by Western critics to be a metaphor about apartheid

    The usually reliable Mission Impossible dipped its toe into wokeness with a 1970 episode where they bring down a brutal apartheid security chief — by convincing him he’s descended from blacks and is actually turning black! The blatantly stupid episode was clearly inspired by the South Africa and Rhodesia hysterics of that time. I’m almost embarrassed to mention it but its more clear evidence that racial apologia usually equals bad drama

    Star Trek’s iconic half-black/half white episode in contrast does a surprising job of even-handedness — the minority member and the alleged oppressor are both tainted and responsible for their planet’s bloodshed

    It's hard to call it an "adaption" because it's probably the original setup - if it is an a adaption it was made millions of years ago even before humans were human.

    The "adaption" is not having pigmented skin.

    One theory is that this was to allow white people to make more Vitamin D in cloudy northern climates.

    Another theory is that white skin is a form of sexual selection like peacock feathers (or large breasts on human females) because fairness is a sign of youth/fertility. In sunny places, this sexual selection competition couldn't run its full course because at some point you would sunburn to death but in the cold north and protected by clothing the race to the bottom could continue until all skin pigment was completely gone.

    Clearly not the original setup. Look at any chimp. Actually, pretty much any furry mammal.

    As I understand it, the current thinking is about a million or so years ago, when we really started full upright walking and colonizing/hunting the savannah. As the fur has gone away, we have to evolve black skin to protect from UV.

    Then white comes roaring back when we move out of tropical regions, and need to make vitamin D, even in temperate zone fall, winter, spring. Selection especially driven by pregnancy in these conditions. And yeah, once it gets going there is probably some sexual selection piling on.

    BTW, again with our indoor lives folks should supplement with vitamin D. Especially during winter time, especially if you are an indoor person or in a dark/cloudy clime … like the PNW.

    As for whiteness being Vitamin D driven, well at least under modern conditions blacks survive ok in northern latitudes. You don't see blacks dropping dead of rickets, even in the days before Vitamin D milk, so maybe it's not that strong an effect.

    The plan was always to provoke Russia into invading to present a narrative that the Russians could never have been and can never be negotiated with leading to them being ejected from the West, cut Germany off from Russian gas (Removing anything blocking Germany going full neocon), degrade Russian conventional forces to make it harder for them to intervene in Syria, (This is the most important goal, as we see now with Turkey launching attacks too like Israel) allowing a new attack on it and making Ukraine dependent on the US/NATO with revanchist claims on Russia.

    Russia has failed, however to be much impacted by the sanctions/removal from Western financial systems (Wallstreet uncharacteristically tried to warn about this openly vis-a-vis SWIFT) has made the development of an alternative order by China/Russia a reality. It is the West which has been negatively impacted economically, not Russia. Meanwhile while the US has always wanted the nordstream gas removed as an influence on Germany to be less anti-Russia, they’ve gone too far and may induce total collapse of the existing pliant regimes in many European countries, Germany included. Russia has also failed to expand it’s occupation into as large an area as they may have desired in terms of forcing them to keep large numbers of military forces pinned down in dealing with pacifying too many ethnic Ukrainians, the Russians have failed to swallow the proverbial porcupine so far. The neocons hoped that Russia would swallow as much of Ukraine as possible, it was actually their plan.

    Meanwhile China has been watching the US recklessly edge up the verge of nuclear war for the sake of Israeli aggression towards Syria and do nothing to avert but indeed push for the outbreak a massive war in Europe. The US may have all but declared war on Russia (A state which is powerful enough to beat Ukraine but not able to occupy much of it let alone be a threat to the rest of Europe or the thousands of miles away US) but they actually declared war on China. This has also been done at a bad time when the US has failed to decouple from China or build back up it’s own industry. I’ve seen commenters here complain that China would be screwed because it needs US consumers for it’s stuff as if the producer is the one who need the consumer more. (Much like the dumb assumptions vis-a-vis sanctions on Russia) In any case China has sequestered so much capital from the West that internal consumption makes up the bulk of it’s production’s fate now.

    And a Russia-China alliance is unbeatable, particularly by a West stuck with an anti-national parasitic elite and late stage democracy. It wasn’t Putin who lost the war before it had begun, it was the West. When Henry Kissinger says the neocons fucked up, you know they really fucked up.

Don't forget that hundreds of millions of them will be coming here in the next few decades; the same thing has gone further in Europe already.

    "... they see hyper-industrialized society, universities packed with Nobel prize winners, the most powerful military in the world..."

    I might have believed this in 1990, but not anymore. Half of our industrial base has gone to China and elsewhere; and because they have all the money and technical expertise, their engineering schools are getting better and try googling to see the number of international students at our universities "packed with Nobel prize winners" - especially graduate students. American grad students in STEM are already close to being a minority. All of this plus Covid has knocked our "hyper-industrialized" society on its ass; just try to get things repaired today.

    And I certainly wouldn't want the US Navy rattling sabers anywhere closer than 250 miles to China. Oh, and don't forget that the Russians have blown apart most of our best land weaponry in spite of the best technical help and training we can offer the Ukrainians.

    Regular combat operations by the VIII Bomber Command began on 17 August 1942, when the 97th Bombardment Group flew twelve Boeing B-17E Flying Fortresses on the first VIII Bomber Command heavy bomber mission of the war from RAF Grafton Underwood, attacking the Rouen-Sotteville marshalling yards in France. Colonel Frank A. Armstrong may have been the commander of the 97th, but at the time of the raid, not yet left seat qualified. On this mission, he sat in the co-pilot's seat of the lead B-17, Butcher Shop[8][self-published source] The pilot in command and leader of this historic mission was Paul Tibbets, who on 6 August 1945, dropped the first Atomic Bomb, Little Boy, on Hiroshima from the Boeing B-29 Superfortress, Enola Gay.

    I don’t know about universal but in general infidelity among women (especially when their husbands are away at war) is far from rare. I forget the %s but in studies of “failure of paternity” a significant % of children were not fathered by their mother’s husbands. Islamic society is obsessed with keeping women locked up for this reason.
     
    If I recall correctly, historically this was estimated to be roughly 14%. I don't know how you arrive at this number where women have a very substantial incentive to lie about it forever. But my guess is that before the modern era of sex regulation there was a large gray area between "not rape" on one end and "rape" on the other, with lots of coercion and acquiescence in that gray area. You're law trained so of course you recall all of the common law elements of rape and doctrines about a "hue and cry" in assessing rape allegations. It's probably just the case that powerful/wealthier/older/higher status men could get away with having a lot of fun in the gray area, and younger/lower status women had to acquiesce. So my surmise is that a substantial proportion of bastards were the result of such "gray area" not-rape rapes. If you're a girl who finds herself in such a situation, your best option is to find a fool, bed him, wed him, and have him play the proud father to your cuckoo.

    Islamic societies' outsized obsession and resultant cloistering of women is probably a product of a long polygamist culture - there are lots of leftover men without prospect of wives.

    Psychologically, people react to extremely bad news in a variety of ways, some of them extremely bad, so I can imagine that some % of women (and men) would react in this way.
     
    Years ago there was a thing on PBS about a young woman who was obviously half black, but born to liberal Jewish parents where everybody pretended she was the product of the marriage including the cuckolded father. The mother was interviewed and said that the excuses were silly like that the father's family had one somewhat remote Sicilian ancestor in the Ashkenazi family tree, and therefore the girl just looked Sicilian. Evidently the father had a good relationship with his non-daughter and at least pretended to be her father until he died. I guess that's one way to deal with it.

    Sounds like wonderful news, except for the article's emphasis on the Great Replacement's next phase: organ appropriation.

    “It’s very exciting to think about how this could potentially impact so many lives.”

    People from minority ethnic groups often wait a year longer for a transplant than white patients, and so the study could have particular implications for them, experts say.

    People from minority communities are more likely to have type B blood and with low donation rates from these populations there are not enough kidneys to go around.

    In 2020-21, just over 9% of total organ donations in the UK came from black and minority ethnic donors while black and minority ethnic patients make up 33% of the kidney transplant waiting list.

The mother was interviewed and said that the excuses were silly like that the father's family had one somewhat remote Sicilian ancestor in the Ashkenazi family tree, and therefore the girl just looked Sicilian. Evidently the father had a good relationship with his non-daughter and at least pretended to be her father until he died. I guess that's one way to deal with it.

    I was sixteen and overstimulated when I read that, but in time came to appreciate how evil it was.
     
    I'm old enough to remember Summer of '42 being promoted and shown on television, but I was too young to understand what it was about, though I remember other boys making much of the condom-buying scene, which I also didn't get. Since I never saw (or read) it, I read the Wiki summary just now. The most troubling thing to me was less the story itself than all the letters the writer received from women claiming to be "Dorothy". Okay, I'm old enough now to understand that not every woman is a Penelope, but Cape Cod in 1942 wasn't exactly densely settled and US war casualties at that time were relatively light, so for there to be "over a dozen" women claiming to be the newlywed Cape Cod honeymooneress who beds a 15-year-old the same night as learning of her husband's death implies this must have been the near-universal practice. Crikey. Is it possible to suppose that morals have improved since then?

    Also, what was an American plane doing over France in the summer of 1942? I thought the US bombing of Europe didn't get underway until 1943. In 1942 summer, US armed forces were fighting in the Pacific and preparing for the autumn invasion of North Africa. Wiki's "Factual Basis" section makes a big deal of Now, Voyager not actually being in US theaters until autumn of 1942, yet US air combat over France strikes me as a bigger anachronism. Maybe it was a recon plane?

    American air operations in Europe began in the summer of 1942:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eighth_Air_Force

    Regular combat operations by the VIII Bomber Command began on 17 August 1942, when the 97th Bombardment Group flew twelve Boeing B-17E Flying Fortresses on the first VIII Bomber Command heavy bomber mission of the war from RAF Grafton Underwood, attacking the Rouen-Sotteville marshalling yards in France. Colonel Frank A. Armstrong may have been the commander of the 97th, but at the time of the raid, not yet left seat qualified. On this mission, he sat in the co-pilot's seat of the lead B-17, Butcher Shop[8][self-published source] The pilot in command and leader of this historic mission was Paul Tibbets, who on 6 August 1945, dropped the first Atomic Bomb, Little Boy, on Hiroshima from the Boeing B-29 Superfortress, Enola Gay.

    This is a sad/hilarious video of a Russian POW in Ukraine who phones home to find out that one of his war buddies who did not get captured is “taking care” of his girlfriend back home.

    Zolkin’s channel is very interesting because it really shows what a raw deal the war is, at least for Russian soldiers. Often getting captured and sent to prison is an improvement to their situation in the field.

    I don’t know about universal but in general infidelity among women (especially when their husbands are away at war) is far from rare. I forget the %s but in studies of “failure of paternity” a significant % of children were not fathered by their mother’s husbands. Islamic society is obsessed with keeping women locked up for this reason.
     
    If I recall correctly, historically this was estimated to be roughly 14%. I don't know how you arrive at this number where women have a very substantial incentive to lie about it forever. But my guess is that before the modern era of sex regulation there was a large gray area between "not rape" on one end and "rape" on the other, with lots of coercion and acquiescence in that gray area. You're law trained so of course you recall all of the common law elements of rape and doctrines about a "hue and cry" in assessing rape allegations. It's probably just the case that powerful/wealthier/older/higher status men could get away with having a lot of fun in the gray area, and younger/lower status women had to acquiesce. So my surmise is that a substantial proportion of bastards were the result of such "gray area" not-rape rapes. If you're a girl who finds herself in such a situation, your best option is to find a fool, bed him, wed him, and have him play the proud father to your cuckoo.

    Islamic societies' outsized obsession and resultant cloistering of women is probably a product of a long polygamist culture - there are lots of leftover men without prospect of wives.

    I was going to respond to Jack’s open ended nonsense claim. Now you’ve come up with a laughable figure.

    There was some recent b.s. study claiming 20+% non-paternity from DNA test. But guess what it was looking at guys who were going in and getting their kids paternity tested. LOL.

    No, the serious attempts to put a figure on this come up with numbers like … 2%.

    A lot of people just seem dopey about what the world was like–had to be like–in the before time. Social rules–and sanctions–are in place to precisely to preserve the necessary incentives/institutions of civilization. Marriage–and especially women not screwing around–was treated seriously otherwise why should men show up to work to provide for wives and children? Criminals were punished. Homosexuals were not celebrated–and occasionally harshly punished.

    BTW, even today–with autos and internet and female employment providing opportunities out the wazoo the overwhelming majority of married couples are faithful. (More so for 1st marriages.) And the number of “non-paternity” events would be small–low single digits and most likely be marriage already toast, divorce on the way.

    Blacks are slowly going missing in the US. Pure blacks almost no longer exist in the US population. All blacks today have the equivalent of 1 white grandparent.

    Most mixed-race blacks are descendants of white slave owners and black slaves. However, these mixed-race children then had offspring that split in two directions, because the end of slavery meant master-slave miscegenation was no longer possible. The mixed-race blacks either married whites and their black genes became diluted with the later addition of white genes, or else the mixed-race people married purer blacks, and their genes became blacker up until around 1960 or so, when social disapproval of mixed black-white marriages began to decline.

    A small percentage of whites show a very small admixture of black genes, say around 1 percent. Blacks today have an average of around 24% white genes. You could call this the house slave genetic effect. House slaves were often the parents of white-black miscegenation, and the offspring were treated better and given lighter work inside the plantation house instead of being made to labor in the fields. House slaves often tried to pass for white after the Civil War.

    But as a warning to liberals: The percentages make clear the direction in which breeding is going. Black genes are vanishing.

    24% white genes means that nearly ALL US blacks have the equivalent of 1 white grandparent. That means the house slaves, who were half white, bred down with pure blacks throughout the 20th century just one more step, but absolutely no farther. They did their utmost to either marry white, mixed race, or just didn't have children. It also mean pure blacks did their utmost to breed as white as they could. Pure blacks have almost vanished from the US population, but pure whites are as common as dirt.

    In 3-4 more generations, the tiny percentage of black genes in some whites will have vanished with more white-to-white marriages, and blacks keep trying to decrease their own black genes and increase their white genes. Everyone is trending towards becoming more and more white.

    It means every black in the US now has house slave ancestry--and likely ALL blacks have white slave master ancestry by now. Everyone is running away from black genes. The two populations in the US have become 2 distinct castes. One is pure white, and the other is pure mix trying to breed itself more and more white.

    The trend is clear. Black genes are being bred out of the US entirely, although the process is slow. Even today, when you see someone a black marry a white, keep in mind that black is likely to be already 24% white, and the white 100% white. The offspring will be more than half white. If these offspring follow the trends of their ancestors, they will try to marry as white as possible, either a pure white or a mixed-race, doing their utmost to further decrease the percentage of black genes their descendants have.

Much more so than whites. “Eugenic” in blacks, correlates highly with “more white”. The paper-bag-test passing gals–I know a few–are the ones who get degrees, have trouble landing a suitable–comparatively educated/successful–husband, and do not have children without one. In contrast the 90% African ghetto gals who are straight up too stupid to even manage birthcontrol get knocked up by whomever.

    You’re certainly right there is quite a bit of white genetic inflow into the black population, but overall–where sticks and stones get rubbed together–it is the black genes that are selected for.

    If–if–there’s a net reduction in the relative proportion of black genes in America, it is due to immigration–the influx of millions of Hispanics, not quite counterbalanced by the large–but much smaller–influx of blacks from Africa/Caribbean. But as Steve’s “World’s Most Important Graph” hints at … the worst is yet to come.

    I imagine the right third of the black bell curve is the most likely to breed with whites or not at all, so the left third (underclass) stays blackest and doesn't disappear into white/brown and will be with us always. The Kartrashian's baby daddies must be on that right side, or are they only after the BBC?

    And genocide is most definitely his thing. Promoters of the White Genocide Project believe that if they simply don't announce what they're up to, they'll pull it off. Once they've wiped out all the Whites, they'll brag about how that was their plan all along. Some of them already alternate between bragging about The Great Replacement, and denouncing those who point it out as "White Supremacists."

    Are you accepting suggestions? Are excerpts from Hamid’s book worth including in a possible Black Supremacist Reader?

    Before I finally got to Steve’s review, I read on Amazon that Hamid “confronts race”. In my understanding, “confronting race” is code for a one-way street heading to the detriment of Whites. (I don’t think Whites even have the rhetorical permission to “confront race” and be taken seriously.)

    I can see “the last White man”–the title phrase–energizing a literary sub-genre.

  134. Anonymous[939] • Disclaimer says:

    But you shouldn’t be accused of exactly hating white human beings themselves (who, as Ta-Nahisi Coates would always point out, are really only “people who think they are white”), just their whiteness.

    This is Western imperialist or colonialist logic stood on its head. There were two kinds of white imperialism. The racial kind that said whites are different(and better) than other races. The other kind, defined by Christianity and/or Enlightenment Universalism, said imperialism had nothing against nonwhites per se. Sure, their lands were invaded by conquest and plunder, but it wasn’t really white war on nonwhites. The problem wasn’t their racial nonwhiteness but cultural nonwhiteness, which was associated with savagery, barbarism, feudalism, or some backwardness. However, if those nonwhites elected to learn the proper Christian or universal values from the West, all would be well.

    Apparently, whites had discovered the answer for all mankind and had the right(and even duty) to spread this universality to nonwhites, even at the point of the bayonet. It wasn’t whites’ war on nonwhites but only whites’ war on nonwhiteness that insisted on being ignorant, backward, and tyrannical. But once nonwhites learned to be like whites(who stood for universal values), all could be brothers under the sun.

    However, such universality didn’t entirely let go of whiteness as a matter of pride and prestige, even if implicit. Even when the ideology was universalist and against racial prejudice, most of the heroes and leaders in stories and narratives were white. And there were ways to maintain privilege, often along racial lines. Today, white elites aren’t so brazenly racial in their outlook but still use connections and ties to ensure their access and privilege even as they pontificate about equity and such that don’t apply to themselves.

    So, naturally, nonwhites turned the tables and took up this universalism(spread around the world by whites) and pointed to how it has favored whites above nonwhites. In other words, whites said they were spreading universalism against nonwhiteness of ignorance and backwardness. But their universalism was unmistakably Western dominant with white faces. And even the US, founded on abstract principles, was very much a racial creation.

    The real lesson here is Go Easy on Universalism. It’s not only impossible but it either exposes the hypocrisy of your side that says one thing but does another or leads to racial extinction if applied sincerely because radical universalism will erase and mix all races or because a devious group will bolster its own identity by shaming others for their failure to live up to universal ideals.

    We have in the West one of the weirdest phenomenon. Jews incessantly reminding whites that the notion of ‘white nation’ is bigoted and must go but somehow having managed to convinced whites that it’s the highest prerogative of the West to ensure not only the existence but the expansion of the Jewish State.

    So you are saying that democracy is not better than tyranny, that freedom is not better than repression, that civilization is not better than barbarism? Sorry, no, not buying.

    This is the kind of thing that tyrants like to push because it suits their interests. In the West, this stance is popular among isolationists because it gives them an excuse to say that its "none of our business" when terrible things happen beyond our borders. You may not be interested in repression, but repression is interested in you.

    The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is truly universal - it applies to all humans, not only those who were lucky enough to be born in a democratic country. And no it has nothing to do with race. Japan, S. Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, etc. are all countries that score high on human rights (and not coincidentally, economically).

    I forget the %s but in studies of “failure of paternity” a significant % of children were not fathered by their mother’s husbands.
     

    If I recall correctly, historically this was estimated to be roughly 14%.
     
    What b.s. study is that from?

    I was going to respond to Jack's open ended nonsense claim. Now you've come up with a laughable figure.

    There was some recent b.s. study claiming 20+% non-paternity from DNA test. But guess what it was looking at guys who were going in and getting their kids paternity tested. LOL.

    No, the serious attempts to put a figure on this come up with numbers like ... 2%.

    A lot of people just seem dopey about what the world was like--had to be like--in the before time. Social rules--and sanctions--are in place to precisely to preserve the necessary incentives/institutions of civilization. Marriage--and especially women not screwing around--was treated seriously otherwise why should men show up to work to provide for wives and children? Criminals were punished. Homosexuals were not celebrated--and occasionally harshly punished.

    BTW, even today--with autos and internet and female employment providing opportunities out the wazoo the overwhelming majority of married couples are faithful. (More so for 1st marriages.) And the number of "non-paternity" events would be small--low single digits and most likely be marriage already toast, divorce on the way.

    Chimps can have white faces (the part that is not covered by fur) but their hands and feet are quite black, even the palms and nailbeds which are light colored in humans:

    The important thing to remember is that chimps are not less evolved humans, just evolved along a different line. It's possible that chimps started out all black and then evolved light colored faces or vice versa wrt their hands. No one really knows the skin color of our common ancestor.

    As for whiteness being Vitamin D driven, well at least under modern conditions blacks survive ok in northern latitudes. You don't see blacks dropping dead of rickets, even in the days before Vitamin D milk, so maybe it's not that strong an effect.

    This was already done as a movie called Watermelon Man.

Godfrey Cambridge plays the role in whiteface for the first few minutes of the film, and then goes without the makeup when his character changes into a black man.

    Jamie Foxx’s long-shelved feature directing effort “All-Star Weekend” won’t be seeing the light of day anytime soon, according to the actor.

    Foxx stars opposite Jeremy Piven as two best friends who win tickets to the NBA All-Star game. Yet their travel plans get derailed due to a group of outrageous characters, including Robert Downey Jr. as a Mexican man and Foxx playing multiple roles including, allegedly, a racist, white police officer. “All-Star Weekend” was filmed in 2016 and also stars Benicio del Toro, Gerard Butler, and Eva Longoria.

    “It’s been tough with the lay of the land when it comes to comedy,” Foxx told CinemaBlend about any upcoming release plans for the film while promoting vampire hunting Netflix film “Day Shift.” “We’re trying to break open the sensitive corners where people go back to laughing again. We hope to keep them laughing and run them right into ‘All-Star Weekend’ because we were definitely going for it.”

    Upcoming Netflix action-comedy “Day Shift” stars Foxx as Bud Jablonski, a father trying to navigate the rising cost of living in Los Angeles by taking on a job as a vampire exterminator. Dogg plays Bud’s friend Big John Elliott who is trying to lure Army vet Bud back to the slayers union. Megan Good and Zion Boadnax also star as Bud’s wife and daughter.

    Karla Souza plays a powerful bloodsucker known as Audrey San Fernando, the valley’s most powerful real estate agent who is pushing the surrounding communities to gentrify aka become home to vampires only. Dave Franco stars as a union rep for vampire hunters.

    “Day Shift” marks stunt coordinator J.J. Perry’s directorial debut, teaming up again with Foxx after working together on “Django Unchained” among other projects. “John Wick” director and fellow former stuntman Chad Stahelski produces the film. Written by Shay Hatten and Tyler Tice, “Day Shift” premieres August 12 on Netflix.

    The fact that so many men get cuckolded when they go off to war can perhaps be taken as indication of what a raw deal war usually is for the soldier.

     

    This is a sad/hilarious video of a Russian POW in Ukraine who phones home to find out that one of his war buddies who did not get captured is "taking care" of his girlfriend back home.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vG2zZaunqhw

    Zolkin's channel is very interesting because it really shows what a raw deal the war is, at least for Russian soldiers. Often getting captured and sent to prison is an improvement to their situation in the field.

    Look into Zolkin's channel. He has interviewed hundreds of Russian POWs. The POWs are not under any compulsion to talk to him. He sits in a room with them with no guards. No one holds a gun to their head. He films without cuts. He asks each POW to recite identifying details because people like you accuse him of interviewing Ukrainian actors. He often shows their vkontakte or other social media pages. If these guys are actors they deserve academy awards - they are often wounded in gruesome ways.

    Is it a form of "psyops" - I suppose so, but that doesn't mean that they are not 100% genuine. He hopes to reach the Russian people and sway them against the war. He wants new recruits to evade service in Ukraine. He doesn't hide his motives.

    The interviews also serve as proof of life for the families back home. Zolkin wants these guys exchanged for Ukrainian prisoners. The Russian military is reluctant to put POWs on the exchange list - they tell the families that their son is missing or dead or has deserted. The families use these videos to prove to the MoD that their sons are in a Ukrainian prison.

    Jamie Foxx’s long-shelved feature directing effort “All-Star Weekend” won’t be seeing the light of day anytime soon, according to the actor.

    Foxx stars opposite Jeremy Piven as two best friends who win tickets to the NBA All-Star game. Yet their travel plans get derailed due to a group of outrageous characters, including Robert Downey Jr. as a Mexican man and Foxx playing multiple roles including, allegedly, a racist, white police officer. “All-Star Weekend” was filmed in 2016 and also stars Benicio del Toro, Gerard Butler, and Eva Longoria.

    “It’s been tough with the lay of the land when it comes to comedy,” Foxx told CinemaBlend about any upcoming release plans for the film while promoting vampire hunting Netflix film “Day Shift.” “We’re trying to break open the sensitive corners where people go back to laughing again. We hope to keep them laughing and run them right into ‘All-Star Weekend’ because we were definitely going for it.”

    Jamie Foxx and Snoop Dogg cleaning up the LBC? We’d raise a gin and juice to that.

    Upcoming Netflix action-comedy “Day Shift” stars Foxx as Bud Jablonski, a father trying to navigate the rising cost of living in Los Angeles by taking on a job as a vampire exterminator. Dogg plays Bud’s friend Big John Elliott who is trying to lure Army vet Bud back to the slayers union. Megan Good and Zion Boadnax also star as Bud’s wife and daughter.

    Karla Souza plays a powerful bloodsucker known as Audrey San Fernando, the valley’s most powerful real estate agent who is pushing the surrounding communities to gentrify aka become home to vampires only. Dave Franco stars as a union rep for vampire hunters.

    “Day Shift” marks stunt coordinator J.J. Perry’s directorial debut, teaming up again with Foxx after working together on “Django Unchained” among other projects. “John Wick” director and fellow former stuntman Chad Stahelski produces the film. Written by Shay Hatten and Tyler Tice, “Day Shift” premieres August 12 on Netflix.

    Rhinoceros (play)

    Trigger warning: French post war avant-garde absurdist blah blah blah ...

    Over the course of three acts, the inhabitants of a small, provincial French town turn into rhinoceroses; ultimately the only human who does not succumb to this mass metamorphosis is the central character, Bérenger, a flustered everyman figure who is initially criticized in the play for his drinking, tardiness, and slovenly lifestyle and then, later, for his increasing paranoia and obsession with the rhinoceroses. The play is often read as a response and criticism to the sudden upsurge of Fascism and Nazism during the events preceding World War II, and explores the themes of conformity, culture, fascism, responsibility, logic, mass movements, mob mentality, philosophy and morality.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhinoceros_(play)

    Does Hamid explore the issues of conformity, culture, fascism, responsibility, logic, mass movements, mob mentality, philosophy and morality in his book?

    Replies: @duncsbaby, @J.Ross, @George

    Hamid’s Last Whiteman seems to have the same themes, but does not end up in the same place as the post WWII literature did. Oddly both Hamid, I am assuming as I did not read his book, and the post WWII writers were examining the same themes extremism but Hamid seems to endorse conformism to whole.

    Rhinoceros (French: Rhinocéros) is a play by Eugène Ionesco, written in 1959.

    The Body Snatchers is a science fiction novel by American writer Jack Finney, originally serialized in Collier’s magazine in November–December 1954 and published in book form the following year.

    I always figured the high brow high minded Rhinocéros predated the Body Snatchers, a mid brow serialized sci fi story, but it turns out Body Snatchers was first. I wonder if this was a common post WWII idea.

    Body snatchers also had an underlying biological scientific rationalization. Does Hamid provide a rationalization, like a virus?

    But you shouldn’t be accused of exactly hating white human beings themselves (who, as Ta-Nahisi Coates would always point out, are really only “people who think they are white”), just their whiteness.

    This is Western imperialist or colonialist logic stood on its head. There were two kinds of white imperialism. The racial kind that said whites are different(and better) than other races. The other kind, defined by Christianity and/or Enlightenment Universalism, said imperialism had nothing against nonwhites per se. Sure, their lands were invaded by conquest and plunder, but it wasn't really white war on nonwhites. The problem wasn't their racial nonwhiteness but cultural nonwhiteness, which was associated with savagery, barbarism, feudalism, or some backwardness. However, if those nonwhites elected to learn the proper Christian or universal values from the West, all would be well.

    Apparently, whites had discovered the answer for all mankind and had the right(and even duty) to spread this universality to nonwhites, even at the point of the bayonet. It wasn't whites' war on nonwhites but only whites' war on nonwhiteness that insisted on being ignorant, backward, and tyrannical. But once nonwhites learned to be like whites(who stood for universal values), all could be brothers under the sun.

    However, such universality didn't entirely let go of whiteness as a matter of pride and prestige, even if implicit. Even when the ideology was universalist and against racial prejudice, most of the heroes and leaders in stories and narratives were white. And there were ways to maintain privilege, often along racial lines. Today, white elites aren't so brazenly racial in their outlook but still use connections and ties to ensure their access and privilege even as they pontificate about equity and such that don't apply to themselves.

    So, naturally, nonwhites turned the tables and took up this universalism(spread around the world by whites) and pointed to how it has favored whites above nonwhites. In other words, whites said they were spreading universalism against nonwhiteness of ignorance and backwardness. But their universalism was unmistakably Western dominant with white faces. And even the US, founded on abstract principles, was very much a racial creation.

    The real lesson here is Go Easy on Universalism. It's not only impossible but it either exposes the hypocrisy of your side that says one thing but does another or leads to racial extinction if applied sincerely because radical universalism will erase and mix all races or because a devious group will bolster its own identity by shaming others for their failure to live up to universal ideals.

    We have in the West one of the weirdest phenomenon. Jews incessantly reminding whites that the notion of 'white nation' is bigoted and must go but somehow having managed to convinced whites that it's the highest prerogative of the West to ensure not only the existence but the expansion of the Jewish State.

    I don’t know about universal but in general infidelity among women (especially when their husbands are away at war) is far from rare. I forget the %s but in studies of “failure of paternity” a significant % of children were not fathered by their mother’s husbands. Islamic society is obsessed with keeping women locked up for this reason.
     
    If I recall correctly, historically this was estimated to be roughly 14%. I don't know how you arrive at this number where women have a very substantial incentive to lie about it forever. But my guess is that before the modern era of sex regulation there was a large gray area between "not rape" on one end and "rape" on the other, with lots of coercion and acquiescence in that gray area. You're law trained so of course you recall all of the common law elements of rape and doctrines about a "hue and cry" in assessing rape allegations. It's probably just the case that powerful/wealthier/older/higher status men could get away with having a lot of fun in the gray area, and younger/lower status women had to acquiesce. So my surmise is that a substantial proportion of bastards were the result of such "gray area" not-rape rapes. If you're a girl who finds herself in such a situation, your best option is to find a fool, bed him, wed him, and have him play the proud father to your cuckoo.

    Islamic societies' outsized obsession and resultant cloistering of women is probably a product of a long polygamist culture - there are lots of leftover men without prospect of wives.

    Psychologically, people react to extremely bad news in a variety of ways, some of them extremely bad, so I can imagine that some % of women (and men) would react in this way.
     
    Years ago there was a thing on PBS about a young woman who was obviously half black, but born to liberal Jewish parents where everybody pretended she was the product of the marriage including the cuckolded father. The mother was interviewed and said that the excuses were silly like that the father's family had one somewhat remote Sicilian ancestor in the Ashkenazi family tree, and therefore the girl just looked Sicilian. Evidently the father had a good relationship with his non-daughter and at least pretended to be her father until he died. I guess that's one way to deal with it.

    > If I recall correctly, historically this [‘failure of paternity’] was estimated to be roughly 14%.

    Here’s a 2019 GNXP post describing a study of the Netherlands. From the Abstract:

    Specifically, we observe that estimated Extra-Pair Paternity rates among married couples varied by more than an order of magnitude, from 0.4% to 5.9%, and peaked among families with a low socioeconomic background living in densely populated cities of the late 19th century. Our results support theoretical predictions that social context can strongly affect the outcomes of sexual conflict in human populations by modulating the incentives and opportunities for engaging in extra-pair relationships.

    Razib comments:

    Basically, prosperous farmers in less dense areas are the least likely to exhibit EPP. I think the Dutch study probably generalizes to most Eurasian societies. In particular, the male-dominated peasant societies that emerged in the last 10,000 years have likely been characterized by low EPP.

Don’t forget that hundreds of millions of them will be coming here in the next few decades; the same thing has gone further in Europe already.

    “… they see hyper-industrialized society, universities packed with Nobel prize winners, the most powerful military in the world…”

    I might have believed this in 1990, but not anymore. Half of our industrial base has gone to China and elsewhere; and because they have all the money and technical expertise, their engineering schools are getting better and try googling to see the number of international students at our universities “packed with Nobel prize winners” – especially graduate students. American grad students in STEM are already close to being a minority. All of this plus Covid has knocked our “hyper-industrialized” society on its ass; just try to get things repaired today.

    And I certainly wouldn’t want the US Navy rattling sabers anywhere closer than 250 miles to China. Oh, and don’t forget that the Russians have blown apart most of our best land weaponry in spite of the best technical help and training we can offer the Ukrainians.

    Yes, the initiative was her's. Both in the film and the novel it was presented as some bizarre manifestation of grief that the protagonist goes along with but does not understand. Raucher said later that he was in a state of anxiety through the whole episode.

    The actual 'Dorothy' sent him a letter of apology some years after the film appeared. She would have been approaching 60 at the time. Raucher is still alive at age 94.

    If my own memory of the film and the novel is true, the dialogue and action takes place among the author, his two friends, the girls they dated on the island, and so forth, with Dorothy appearing in only two or three scenes and not given much dialogue. By some accounts, the project began as a tribute to a friend killed during the Korean War; the friend is one of the characters in the story.

In addition to “and” constituting 32 percent of the words of his works, he had this annoying habit of engaging in faux-lamentation over the loss of civility (tsk-tsk what are we COMING to?), while writing pure nihilism with the other 68 percent. Screw him.

    You mean he really did screw a war widow the night her husband bought the farm? I thought that kind of thing only happened in places like the Clinton White House.

    I was sixteen and overstimulated when I read that, but in time came to appreciate how evil it was.
     
    I never read the book and only saw the movie, but, as best I can recall what I haven't seen for decades, didn't Jennifer O'Neill's "Dorothy" seduce him? (Not that that really improves the situation any ...) My hormones and I were obviously too fixated on Jennifer O'Neill back then to ponder the severe moral pratfalls.

    Yes, the initiative was her’s. Both in the film and the novel it was presented as some bizarre manifestation of grief that the protagonist goes along with but does not understand. Raucher said later that he was in a state of anxiety through the whole episode.

    The actual ‘Dorothy’ sent him a letter of apology some years after the film appeared. She would have been approaching 60 at the time. Raucher is still alive at age 94.

    If my own memory of the film and the novel is true, the dialogue and action takes place among the author, his two friends, the girls they dated on the island, and so forth, with Dorothy appearing in only two or three scenes and not given much dialogue. By some accounts, the project began as a tribute to a friend killed during the Korean War; the friend is one of the characters in the story.

    If you find the concept of race-change intriguing, Hamid will not satisfy your curiosity. For example, what nonwhite race Anders turns into is never disclosed: In this book there are only whites and an unspecified mass of nonwhites, which suits the overwhelmingly white book-buying audience—they don’t pay much attention to nonwhites other than as a bludgeon against whites they don’t like.
     
    That's very good, Mr. Sailer. I've been saying all along that much of this latter-day Kulturkampf is a white people civil war, in which one side is using the non-whites (mostly blacks) as auxiliaries and avatars, with whom to bludgeon their white enemies.

    As for the mechanics of this racial transformation the author neglects to mention, perhaps it is what the fictional Klingons went through from Star Trek to Star Trek: Next Generation:

    Neither of them thought they were telling the truth at any point though. Merely shifting the goal posts as reality caught up to the public.

    The plan was always to provoke Russia into invading to present a narrative that the Russians could never have been and can never be negotiated with leading to them being ejected from the West, cut Germany off from Russian gas (Removing anything blocking Germany going full neocon), degrade Russian conventional forces to make it harder for them to intervene in Syria, (This is the most important goal, as we see now with Turkey launching attacks too like Israel) allowing a new attack on it and making Ukraine dependent on the US/NATO with revanchist claims on Russia.

    Russia has failed, however to be much impacted by the sanctions/removal from Western financial systems (Wallstreet uncharacteristically tried to warn about this openly vis-a-vis SWIFT) has made the development of an alternative order by China/Russia a reality. It is the West which has been negatively impacted economically, not Russia. Meanwhile while the US has always wanted the nordstream gas removed as an influence on Germany to be less anti-Russia, they've gone too far and may induce total collapse of the existing pliant regimes in many European countries, Germany included. Russia has also failed to expand it's occupation into as large an area as they may have desired in terms of forcing them to keep large numbers of military forces pinned down in dealing with pacifying too many ethnic Ukrainians, the Russians have failed to swallow the proverbial porcupine so far. The neocons hoped that Russia would swallow as much of Ukraine as possible, it was actually their plan.

    Meanwhile China has been watching the US recklessly edge up the verge of nuclear war for the sake of Israeli aggression towards Syria and do nothing to avert but indeed push for the outbreak a massive war in Europe. The US may have all but declared war on Russia (A state which is powerful enough to beat Ukraine but not able to occupy much of it let alone be a threat to the rest of Europe or the thousands of miles away US) but they actually declared war on China. This has also been done at a bad time when the US has failed to decouple from China or build back up it's own industry. I've seen commenters here complain that China would be screwed because it needs US consumers for it's stuff as if the producer is the one who need the consumer more. (Much like the dumb assumptions vis-a-vis sanctions on Russia) In any case China has sequestered so much capital from the West that internal consumption makes up the bulk of it's production's fate now.

    And a Russia-China alliance is unbeatable, particularly by a West stuck with an anti-national parasitic elite and late stage democracy. It wasn't Putin who lost the war before it had begun, it was the West. When Henry Kissinger says the neocons fucked up, you know they really fucked up.

    Look into Zolkin's channel. He has interviewed hundreds of Russian POWs. The POWs are not under any compulsion to talk to him. He sits in a room with them with no guards. No one holds a gun to their head. He films without cuts. He asks each POW to recite identifying details because people like you accuse him of interviewing Ukrainian actors. He often shows their vkontakte or other social media pages. If these guys are actors they deserve academy awards - they are often wounded in gruesome ways.

    Is it a form of "psyops" - I suppose so, but that doesn't mean that they are not 100% genuine. He hopes to reach the Russian people and sway them against the war. He wants new recruits to evade service in Ukraine. He doesn't hide his motives.

    The interviews also serve as proof of life for the families back home. Zolkin wants these guys exchanged for Ukrainian prisoners. The Russian military is reluctant to put POWs on the exchange list - they tell the families that their son is missing or dead or has deserted. The families use these videos to prove to the MoD that their sons are in a Ukrainian prison.

  179. Whiteness has nothing to do with skin colour or bone structure. It is the lefts current synonym for the existing order, the normative, what old school communjsts called the bourgeoisie.

    The bourgeoisie + capitalism makes white supremacy, which is why the left brands black conservatives as “white supremacists”. It is perfectly logical in their universe.

    My understanding, which may be wrong or grossly simplified, is that the Industrial Revolution was solely a product of the UK. Other countries soon copied and followed, but the Empire was founded on the head start of the UK.

    In science, I remember France had some major discoveries in biology.

    The funny thing is, I said that none of those things had to happen (as in a simple byproduct of progress as people discovered more stuff). Today we are having an ainti-Industrial Revolution, with whole nations swearing off practical energy. We are also having an ainti-Scientific Revolution with powerful institutions and governments declaring that science is simply one race imposing their prejudices about knowledge on other peoples.

    In college what really struck me is that almost all knowledge was "suspect." The Greek Philosophers spun a great web and when you read them you were drawn in - surely that is the truth about existence and ethics, but then the next one would come along just a convincing. Newton however was so obviously a better explainer than what came before and the prestige of Science was so great that every field of knowledge claimed to be scientific.

    Marx even claimed to have discovered a scientific politics.

    "Do tell."

    2020 was a synthetic uprising financed by white fascist billionaires. There is no commonality between the two periods of time other than the two colours of the dramatis personae. The racial terrorism and the bio-weapon release of 2020 moved forward an elite agenda that continues to proceed. The BLM black ladies have been amply rewarded for their wanton participation. Meanwhile, the young white adults who attempted to emulate the civil rights fight of their New Leftoid parents and mentors ultimately failed because there is no civil rights problem for blacks. The problem for blacks are blacks. These programmed white kids are an unstable contingent to begin with and now their plight is worse: angrier, dumber, fatter, and just as addicted to social media.

    You mean young white teens and those in their 20s have continued to that cause since they believe there are still injustices.

    “These programmed white kids are an unstable contingent to begin with and now their plight is worse: angrier, dumber, fatter, and just as addicted to social media.”

    Exactly, tens of millions of whites, from a race with high IQs, are unsuspectedly duped. /sarcasm

    “change their minds?”

    “Fortunately, the young white adults in my life don’t require deprogramming. But they’re still annoying.”

    I get it. Anyone who doesn’t adhere to what you believe to be truth has been “programmed”. Then there is no need anymore to engage in critical thinking. But life doesn’t work that way. The young people of their own free will have sought out information, disseminated it, discussed it, and now incorporated it into their lives. The result is a different way of thinking that you personally disagree with.

    Maybe what's driving it is an intuitive sense that g drives out t (denoted by whiteness since the Bantu seem to have retained their t just fine) and people, especially women, get tired of the Danegeld payments that seem to inevitably ensue.

    The previous intuition that too much t is going to get us all killed Oppenheimer-style of course in significant tension with the new one arising out of the results of the previous one, so there's widespread anxiety, especially among those women.
