Doesn’t the Theory of Intersectionality posit that you deserve more Diversity Pokemon Points for being black and female than for being black and male?

Have any black women ever gone Polar Bear Hunting upon Yglesias’s skull for his crime of Walking While White through our nation’s capital?

From the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General:

Superior pattern detectors efficiently learn, activate, apply, and update social stereotypes.

Lick DJ1, Alter AL2, Freeman JB1.

J Exp Psychol Gen. 2018 Feb;147(2):209-227. doi: 10.1037/xge0000349. Epub 2017 Jul 20.

Abstract
Superior cognitive abilities are generally associated with positive outcomes such as academic achievement and social mobility. Here, we explore the darker side of cognitive ability, highlighting robust links between pattern detection and stereotyping. Across 6 studies, we find that superior pattern detectors efficiently learn and use stereotypes about social groups. This pattern holds across explicit (Studies 1 and 2), implicit (Studies 2 and 4), and behavioral measures of stereotyping (Study 3). We also find that superior pattern detectors readily update their stereotypes when confronted with new information (Study 5), making them particularly susceptible to counterstereotype training (Study 6). Pattern detection skills therefore equip people to act as naïve empiricists who calibrate their stereotypes to match incoming information. These findings highlight novel effects of individual aptitudes on social-cognitive processes.

    This recent paper (preprint) references that Lick paper, but seems more sensible: The Accuracy of Demographic Stereotypes
    https://psyarxiv.com/beaq3/

    Conclusion

    Stereotypes regarding demographic groups in North America and Europe have, so far,
    proven to be far more accurate than once believed. Even implicit associations seem to reflect
    social reality more than prejudice. People judge others primarily on the basis of their personal
    characteristics, when they are known, not on stereotypes. This occurs both explicitly and
    implicitly. And the few studies that have examined the issue have generally found that relying
    on a stereotype can increase, rather than reduce, the accuracy of person perception. The
    historical emphasis on stereotype inaccuracy persists in many modern perspectives and requires
    scientific self-correction. This review has aimed to stimulate such self-correction by
    summarizing the extant evidence on stereotype accuracy.

    ...or discriminate against their own kids in favor of the kids of those who hate them!

    They hate the truth, this sort of thing should come as no surprise. I've often thought that the anti-natural mindset of the globalists was put plainly on display in their hatred of "stereotypes", AKA pattern recognition, you know, that skillset which has been very handy in our evolution as a species.

  2. ‘Here, we explore the darker side of cognitive ability”

    Especially for women. The great and the good are well aware of the dangers women face in inter-ethnic conflicts; they just don't care. I said in another thread that, under ordinary circumstances, feminism would be dormant for the time being. I take that back. Feminists have a lot of work to do. They're just not doing it. As in the major political parties, the donors set the agenda, and White women have no effective political representation except insofar as their interests happen to coincide with the interests of the plutocracy.
  3. Well then the people here must be very dumb because they haven’t jumped to the conclusion that I’m a supergenius.

  4. Stereotypes against PoC, women, and LGBTQ people are the product of violent, brutal, settler colonialist cisheteronormative whiteness and its hegemonic dominance over the entire world over the past two millennia. In terms of scale and scope, no form of oppression has been as harsh as that of white men. The abolition of whiteness is long overdue. Truth is that the only “stereotypes” which are true are those regarding white men. It is painfully obvious that white men are vile, unclean, unlikeable, greedy, racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, bigoted, devoid of empathy and compassion, uniquely violent, religiously intolerant, exploitative, wicked, cruel slavers and genocidal mass murderers without par in human history. These may seem to be stereotypes, but even if they are they are completely based on readily observable scientific truth about the social construct we call white men. It is indisputable that this social construct of white men and their socially constructed whiteness are intrinsically horrible on a genetic level. White DNA is an abomination, and you don’t even have to read Leonard Pitts to realize that whiteness equals racism, that white people are embodiments of racism from conception through birth until death, that white evil is inherent, and the only way to solve this is through getting rid of whiteness. Period.

  6. “Stereotypes of Black men as uniquely violent”

    I wonder how that stereotype was created in the first place….

    According to the US Department of Justice, African Americans accounted for 52.5% of all homicide offenders from 1980 to 2008, with whites 45.3% and “Other” 2.2%. The offending rate for African Americans was almost 8 times higher than whites, and the victim rate 6 times higher. Most homicides were intraracial, with 84% of white victims killed by whites, and 93% of African Americans victims were killed by African Americans.[43][44][45]

    In 2013, number and percentage of murder arrests by race were:

    Black or African Americans 4,379 = 52.2%
    White Americans (including Hispanic Americans) 3,799 = 45.3%
    American Indians or Alaska Natives 98 = 1.06%
    Asian Americans 101 = 1.2%[46][47]

    Inversely, the percentage of individuals in each racial demographic arrested for murder in 2013 was:

    0.01% of Black or African American population (4,379/38,929,319)
    0.0017% of White American and Hispanic American population (3,799/223,553,265)
    0.0033% of American Indian or Alaska Native population (98/2,932,248)
    0.0007% of Asian American population (101/14,674,252)
    0.001% of Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander population (6/540,013).[46][48]

    You make some great points but it is actually a lot worse then you say. The "white" count includes Latinos and Hispanics - brown people - . Consider "white" Hispanic George Zimmerman for example. Without this numbers fudging, the true black-white homicide disparity is much larger.

  10. Is there any distinction to be drawn between pattern detection and stereotyping? The thesis almost sounds like a tautology.

  11. This is the new thing, trying to shoehorn chetty’s Findings that racism is just against black males, so now you see the rush to support it. Funny how no other research before this found this blockbuster. Not the bogus fields of implicit bias, stereotype threat, or “black names on resumes,” but now, of course! Next, based on a finding of black lesbians doing worse in male dominated fields, we will find out that all the racism is against them.

    • Agree: Abe
  12. The patterns I recognize:

    Black women — Often prone to making obnoxious or unreasonable complaints and demands at every opportunity. In professional capacities, often incompetent or unhelpful. Prone to low-level grifting and stealing. Tend to have messy home lives. The more rotund, the more likely to possess said negative qualities. The primarily-mulatta minority who are conventionally attractive (e.g. Tyra Banks or Rashida Jones as famous examples) tend to be well-adjusted and agreeable. But, unattractive mulattas are often foaming-at-the-mouth SJWs.

    Black men — Similar to above, but more agreeable on average. Immigrants and white-collar professionals (particularly those able to perform their jobs competently) tend to be the most agreeable. When encountered in unfamiliar contexts, can, a non-negligible percentage of the time, present a grave danger to my person, in proportion to the formula

    (black males within visual range)^2 / (white males WVR)^2

    But I probably came to those conclusions because I watch too much football. Football jocks: America’s most hated minority!

    Stereotypes against PoC, women, and LGBTQ people are the product of violent, brutal, settler colonialist cisheteronormative whiteness and its hegemonic dominance over the entire world over the past two millennia. In terms of scale and scope, no form of oppression has been as harsh as that of white men. The abolition of whiteness is long overdue. Truth is that the only "stereotypes" which are true are those regarding white men. It is painfully obvious that white men are vile, unclean, unlikeable, greedy, racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, bigoted, devoid of empathy and compassion, uniquely violent, religiously intolerant, exploitative, wicked, cruel slavers and genocidal mass murderers without par in human history. These may seem to be stereotypes, but even if they are they are completely based on readily observable scientific truth about the social construct we call white men. It is indisputable that this social construct of white men and their socially constructed whiteness are intrinsically horrible on a genetic level. White DNA is an abomination, and you don't even have to read Leonard Pitts to realize that whiteness equals racism, that white people are embodiments of racism from conception through birth until death, that white evil is inherent, and the only way to solve this is through getting rid of whiteness.

    "Stereotypes of Black men as uniquely violent"

    I wonder how that stereotype was created in the first place....

    According to the US Department of Justice, African Americans accounted for 52.5% of all homicide offenders from 1980 to 2008, with whites 45.3% and "Other" 2.2%. The offending rate for African Americans was almost 8 times higher than whites, and the victim rate 6 times higher. Most homicides were intraracial, with 84% of white victims killed by whites, and 93% of African Americans victims were killed by African Americans.[43][44][45]
     

    In 2013, number and percentage of murder arrests by race were:

    Black or African Americans 4,379 = 52.2%

    White Americans (including Hispanic Americans) 3,799 = 45.3%
    American Indians or Alaska Natives 98 = 1.06%
    Asian Americans 101 = 1.2%[46][47]
     

    Inversely, the percentage of individuals in each racial demographic arrested for murder in 2013 was:

    0.01% of Black or African American population (4,379/38,929,319)
    0.0017% of White American and Hispanic American population (3,799/223,553,265)
    0.0033% of American Indian or Alaska Native population (98/2,932,248)
    0.0007% of Asian American population (101/14,674,252)
    0.001% of Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander population (6/540,013).[46][48]

    You make some great points but it is actually a lot worse then you say. The “white” count includes Latinos and Hispanics – brown people – . Consider “white” Hispanic George Zimmerman for example. Without this numbers fudging, the true black-white homicide disparity is much larger.

    15. Unrealistic and flattering portrayal of Afro-blacks in FCC-approved movies and TV
    16. Afro-black civil right organizations financed and led by filthy rich protected class people
    17. Unbelievably stupid elected Afro members of the congressional Black Caucus
    18. Afro-black dominated cities and colleges bailed out by county, state and federal taxpayers
    19. Afro-black history month

    30. Afro president of the US promotes undue entitlements for Afro-blacks and other diversity people
    31. Afro-black only organizations allowed by law, white-only organizations outlawed

    38. Lowered academic standards for afro-blacks and other protected class people in public service jobs
    39. Federal government coerces private businesses to implement pro-Afro diversity policies, or else suffer federal litigation, denial of tax breaks and business licenses, and denial of federal contracts.
    40. Criminal Afro-blacks frequently conspire to assassinate police, with no hate crime charges and no domestic terrorist charges.

    Interesting perspective. I actually quit Twitter in disgust during the Big Purge a few months ago. Though my acct is still there, AFAIK.

    How do everyone’s followers ‘come back for the nth time’? Is it automatic somehow? I’d figure many if not most would be lost.

    Holders of banned accounts make a new one and tell simpatico live accounts (who often had followers in common) that they are back. Those live accounts spread the word, and the new accounts get most of their old followers back plus some new ones.
  47. I bet if you find out where Corrine and Matt live, work, socialize, you won’t find any negros except for one or two one percenters. The typical negro that the rest of us are stuck with, they never meet…so they can have their high opinion of negros. Drag their libtard asses down into the hood and see how perceptions change….

  50. Matthew Iglesias? What kind of name is that, some sort of inquisition era Iberian jewish name? I suppose that is irrelevant. Thankfully it does not seem that Matty Kirk possesses any superior cognitive ability which would lead to mal pensive pattern recognition.

    Update on Jose Yglesias, the fourth grandparent.
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jose_Yglesias

    "Jose Yglesias (November 29, 1919 – November 7, 1995)[1] was an American novelist and journalist."

    "He moved to New York City in 1937"

    "He studied at Black Mountain College and was a film critic for the far left The Daily Worker."

    "He died on November 7, 1995, at Beth Israel Hospital in New York City"

  51. “Superior cognitive abilities are generally associated with positive outcomes such as academic achievement and social mobility. Here, we explore the darker side of cognitive ability”

    This is downright Bradburian. This sends chills down my spine.
