Two years ago, the half-black Naomi Osaka politely stood by while Serena Williams screamed at a tennis official over something or other during the the final of the US Open women’s tennis tournament, a tantrum that launched a 1000 op-eds by Angry Strong Black Women about how Angry Strong Black Women like Serena deserve to act like jerks due to 1619 and redlining and, worst of all, society’s prejudice against Black Hair.

This year, Osaka correctly surmised that the way to get on the side of the media was not to be a polite Japanese but to go the Full Angry Strong Black Woman, wearing masks featuring the names of various black lowlifes who have come to grief.

From NBC News:

Naomi Osaka’s hair reveals the burdens carried by Black bodies in white spaces
NBC News
Robyn Autry
NBC News•September 12, 2020UPDATE (September 12, 2020, 7:00 p.m. ET):

This piece has been updated to reflect Naomi Osaka’s victory on Saturday in the 2020 U.S. Open women’s finals. She defeated Victoria Azarenka two sets to one to claim her third Grand Slam.

Naomi Osaka’s hair doesn’t matter. At least not when it comes to her 120 mph serve, her daunting forehand or her powerful baseline play. But it does matter in terms of how she shows up in the tennis world and how she’s emerged as one of the most prominent athletes supporting the Black Lives Matter protests….

Alongside her outstanding athleticism, though, Osaka has grabbed headlines this tournament by wearing masks emblazoned with the names of victims of racial violence: Philando Castile, Trayvon Martin, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Elijah McClain. Black masks, white lettering. Her one-person protest feels even more powerful as she enters and exits the nearly empty stadium every match.

The masks draw our eyes up, but this is nothing new when it comes to Osaka. With her thick hair often pulled into a high ponytail and up through a visor, Osaka is accustomed to making a statement. It’s the sort of statement that Black bodies always make, whether intended or not, in predominately white spaces. As Claudia Rankine wrote about Serena Williams in “Citizen: An American Lyric” — referencing Zora Neale Hurston — Black players appear against the sharp white backdrop of the tennis world.

There are more Black female professional tennis players today than there were when sisters Serena and Venus Williams made their Gland Slam debuts in the late 1990s. But the way these women show up — how they present themselves and how their bodies get read by others — is no less a topic of conversation today, and, yes, as much a form of everyday resistance as it was when Venus Williams protested being penalized for losing hair beads while playing in 1999.

Whether it’s colorful beads that clack or hair pieces attached at the back, Black women’s hair gets noticed especially by white onlookers. However, with more Black players on the courts and shifting public discourse about what’s appropriate to say about Black bodies, younger players are more likely to be interviewed about their beauty rituals and personal style. Osaka has been profiled in numerous magazines like Vogue and Elle, and on websites like Refinery29.

Black women with natural hair that has not been chemically straightened or relaxed can relate to the way Osaka talks about her curls, the way her hair reacts to humidity and its propensity for dryness. We can relate to her laughing at the unruliness of her hair as its best and worst quality. She watches YouTube tutorials and uses Miss Jessie’s styling products, just like so many other Black women with natural hair.

It’s this relatability that delights and should not be underestimated, especially given Osaka’s multiracial heritage. She was born in Japan, but grew up in the U.S.; her father is Haitian and her mother, Japanese; she relinquished her U.S. citizenship for Japan and plays under its flag but lives in Los Angeles and has been a vocal supporter of BLM. She emphatically describes herself as a Black woman, but also as multiracial. She has said she doesn’t quite feel American or Japanese or Haitian.

… Osaka’s hair bouncing in a few different directions as she darts across the tennis court, sometimes with her curl pattern defined and other times in more of a frizzy cloud, attracts attention and resonates with audiences beyond the U.S. Just as being Black and (not “or”) multiracial in the U.S. involves upturning racial thinking, being Black and Japanese challenges long-held beliefs about Japan as monoethnic.

Osaka and other BLM protests are shining a light on racism in Japan, inspiring discussions about what it means to be Japanese and about the lives of the country’s multiracial population. Some are now questioning why people with mixed heritage are referred to as “hafu” (or half), suggesting they’re somehow less Japanese than others. She’s widely regarded not just as a Japanese celebrity but as a role model for her talent and social activism….

It’s the fluffy curliness of Osaka’s hair that makes it stand out against that sharp white backdrop of the tennis world because it represents her agency, not just her body.

While hair may not seem like a big deal, it is….

Indeed.

Also, remember that Race Does Not Exist.

  7. So her black side come out. Honestly, it beat beating your racket against one of the net posts when you’re mad at yourself like my brother used to do. (Sure 10 dollar rackets, but 2 in one day, really?)

    I can’t believe these idiots are wearing masks during the matches! Are you serious, Steve? Sorry, I’ve not watched a women’s tennis match in years due to various reasons. I just read about the hair-bobbing that I’m supposed to be attracted to. Listen, their butts and thighs are too big and the new skirts and multi-colors don’t help.

    Why in the hell would I watch women’s tennis now? What the point?

    (I dunno, maybe this writer’s got different tastes than I, but, really, the Williams Brothers? No thank you.)

  8. Some are now questioning why people with mixed heritage are referred to as “hafu” (or half), suggesting they’re somehow less Japanese than others.

    . . . uh . . . because she is only half Japanese, which is less than someone who is fully Japanese. Seems pretty straightforward, actually.

  9. And of course, the article follows the racist convention of capitalizing “black” but leaving “white” in lowercase.

    If she really wanted to be edgy, she could pick as her black criminal mascot one of the three black guys who almost got the U.S. kicked out of Okinawa.

    The 1995 Okinawa rape incident took place on September 4, 1995, when three African-American U.S. servicemen, U.S. Navy Seaman Marcus Gill and U.S. Marines Rodrico Harp and Kendrick Ledet, who were all serving at Camp Hansen on Okinawa, rented a van and kidnapped a 12-year-old Okinawan girl. They beat her, duct-taped her eyes and mouth shut, and bound her hands. Gill and Harp then raped her, while Ledet claimed he only pretended to do so out of fear of Gill.[1] The incident led to further debate over the continued presence of U.S. forces in Japan. The offenders were tried and convicted in Japanese court by Japanese law, in accordance with the U.S.–Japan Status of Forces Agreement. The families of the defendants initially claimed that Japanese officials had racially discriminated against the men because they were all black and coerced confessions from them, but later retracted the claims. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1995_Okinawa_rape_incident

    Also note that she, like one Rina Sawayama, chose to not naturalise or renounce her ‘home’ countries citizenship in order to maintain Japanese citizenship. It’ll be fun to see when this becomes a problem for her and it is the US, not Japanese that is racist.

    Remember, Naomi Osaka is just as American as anyone and also just as Japanese as anyone and also just as black as anyone.

    Actually, she is on record as stating she doesn’t feel American. (I’m glad of her honesty, how anyone who was born in Japan to a Haitian father, moved to the US and moved again inside the US and was home schooled with her father training her the rest of the time, denying her any real socialisation with Americans or ‘Americans’ could ever feel American is beyond me.

    Leonard thus decided that Naomi and Mari would play for Japan. It’s a decision that the sisters largely agreed with. Naomi told The New York Times;

    “My dad thought that since I grew up around my mom and I have a lot of Japanese relatives… I don’t know… I don’t necessarily feel like I’m American. I wouldn’t know what that feels like.

    Naomi recently gave up United States citizenship to allow her to play for Japan in the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

    If you’re wondering about Sawayama.

    Rich Japanese emigrates to London as child, makes living as recording artist. Gets triggered and cries ‘RACISM!’ because her actually ethnonationalist country denies holding dual citizenship and she apparently refuses to give up her Japanese citizenship for British. Awards set up to promote British artists are therefore racist because they require one to at least hold British citizenship.

    Media immediately designated her a martyr, gives her massive promotion because, of course, she’d win these awards if she was only allowed to compete.

    So equation is thus: Ms Sawayama is as British as anyone, she has lived in London since she was 5 and is 30 now. Also Ms Sawayama won’t naturalise because the Japanese government won’t allow dual citizenship. Mercury Prize and BRIT awards are racist since they demand the artist be British as a gatekeep to make sure it promotes home-grown talent given the large numbers of foreign recording artists in London. The main beneficiaries being Afro-Caribbeans.

    This is a problem since it doesn’t account for the tiny numbers of people like Ms Sawayama and is the fault of the indigenous population not the government of Japan or Ms Sawayama’s refusal to pick her professed true homeland over the one only racists would ascribe to her.

    Eh. I suspect that a mixture of not speaking Japanese, having no real links to the country (as well as being, well) and obviously using the country as a piggy bank stopped her attempts to be the super half quite quickly. She might well just have always felt more of a connections to the Af. Ams than to the Japs (and vice versa).

    I can actually sympathise on the hair thing. It can’t be easy (or cheap) to be expected to use industrial chemicals and/or someone else’s hair in order to feel pretty. In fact, if they weren’t so viciously hostile to White people, I’d be very sympathetic to their attempts to do…something, whatever it is. They can’t enjoy their current plight.

    When is the last time a leading media outlet or lefty academic said this? I think they ditched “Race Does Not Exist” a while ago. It serves no purpose now.

  26. Naomi Osaka’s hair reveals the burdens carried by Black bodies in white spaces

    I can lift this burden. If “white spaces” are burdensome to you … don’t go there!

    Personally, while i’ve travelled here and there, i’ve never felt any great need to impose myself upon blacks or Jews or Japanese or Chinese or Hindus or Arabs or homosexuals or anyone else. Never felt oppressed that all these people have their own “spaces”. Never upset that these folks didn’t want me to come and plop my pale white ass in their nation or community or “space”. Don’t want me around … ok!

    This “burden” is the heart of the non-falsifiable two-pronged fraud/whine that is the heart of minoritarianism from the get go with “restricted country clubs” and “Harvard quotas”:

    — you must let me in! (the ideology of the rapist)
    and then
    — your white spaces are oppressive! Or “boring”, “stultifying”, “soul robbing”, “structurally racist”, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

    Staying away from you–oppression. Proximity to you–oppression.
    Segregation–oppression. Integration–oppression.
    Borders–oppression. Assimilation–oppression.
    Leaving you alone–oppression. Interacting with you–oppression.

    Apparently all we white gentiles can do is oppression. If we–please lord–tera-formed another planet and just left … on the way, we’d be receiving broadcasts of Hollyweird movies and NYT editorials bemoaning how we were a bunch of racist, Nazis for leaving minorities stranded on Earth.

  27. Translation: “Oh how I envy white women’s hair.”

  29. I feel sympathy for Ms. Osaka, at least as much as one can for an incredibly successful athlete. Imagine growing up like she did, rootless (neither really Japanese, Haitian nor American) and treated like nothing but a tennis playing machine from early childhood.

    If you watch her interviews, she comes across as a thoughtful person, struggling with being lonely and trying to figure things out. Who amongst us had life figured out when we were 22? How hard must it be to do so when you’ve had little education and are surrounded by people trying to manipulate you and take advantage of your fame and fortune?

  31. News flash: white people don’t care about black hair. White women care a little in the sense that all women tend to notice and comment on the hair and the clothing of other women in general, but it’s more of a “oh, look what she did with her hair” or “that bitch shouldn’t be wearing those ugly shoes” kind of thing. It’s the height of narcissism to think everyone actually gives that much of a shit about you. As far as being multiracial, no one is more racist towards light-skinned, half-black people than other blacks.

    that’s because miss purple hair got the Joker ejected on the worst call in ATP history, so it was those guys in the final instead of him.

    Serena Williams can scream at officials and threaten them with violence, but it’s ok, play on. a pale penis person can hit a SLOW moving ball backwards after losing a point, something 1000 players have done after losing a point, and if it accidentally bumps a lines official at 15 miles an hour, he’s ejected.

    aren’t lines officials, you know, supposed to be looking for the ball? how did she get so surprised by a ball moving at 15 MPH? unless, she wasn’t surprised. unless this is 6th grade playground bullshit and she went running to the teacher. which is what it actually was.

    As Claudia Rankine wrote about Serena Williams in “Citizen: An American Lyric” — referencing Zora Neale Hurston

    A staunch Republican and severe critic of FDR. Cancel her! Redline her!

    Our family is reading Barracoon, her account of the last slave brought (illegally) to America. Until Naomi Osaka, that is. But she has escaped.

    she relinquished her U.S. citizenship for Japan and plays under its flag but lives in Los Angeles

    That is, until the next FDR interns her.

    It’s the fluffy curliness of Osaka’s hair that makes it stand out against that sharp white backdrop…

    Or the sharp white background of ESPN’s photo studio. But they closed down their magazine, so we won’t be seeing Naomi in “The Body Issue”. As we did Serena, in the first.

    There is no way to productively engage such “emotional reasoning” media-vectored mental illness (or for preference, Maslow-hierarchy discontent), is there?

Just saw Jim Goad blackpill take at Taki’s and I agree that this crazy pseudo-political narrative doesn’t personally threaten or affect me much, I guess? Am pleased not to live in a jurisdiction of state-sponsored antifa romper-stomper; but even Portland, Rochester, Lancaster, etc feel more in the way of a surreal hype thing. The historical shadow of the Lancaster BLM chapter will be short and squat.

    If we–please lord–tera-formed another planet and just left … on the way, we’d be receiving broadcasts of Hollyweird movies and NYT editorials bemoaning how we were a bunch of racist, Nazis for leaving minorities stranded on Earth.

    Here’s my idea:

    Let’s build real Oneill Colonies, rotating cylindrical Space Habitats. Make em luxurious, spare no expense, true Elysiums.

    As soon as the inevitable whinging from the non-Whites commences, that we Whites stole all the best resources to build our Space Palaces and how it’s Not Fair that we won’t share, we’ll nod shamefacedly.

    And to make it up to ‘em, we’ll send em all up on the next rocketships. Make em comfy. Give them careful instruction how to maintain the Life Support Equipment. Even set timers for 3 months to remind them to change the air filters.
    Once they’re settled in, we’ll GIVE it to them. Simply hand it over. All of it. We’ll all go back down to Earth, all of us hideous, deplorable Whites, and do our penance for our obnoxious inventiveness by spending our days cleaning up the pollution here on Earth. And wait.

    Six months oughta do it.

    Then, secure in the knowledge of non-White shiftlessness and lackadaisicalness about even things like bare-minimum maintenance, we can, full of confidence, return after the six months, change the clogged air filters, restart the power, toss all the dead bodies out the airlocks, and tidy up a bit…

    Then we can use our glorious Space Habitats as platforms to finally achieve our Manifest Destiny of a Solar System Spanning Civilization for White people.

    However, I don’t see any evidence that this hairstyle represents anything other than an awareness that East Asians generally have quite straight hair, and therefore Ms. Osaka’s hair is much less kinky than it would be if both of her parents were Haitian. Is there anything to indicate that Ms. Osaka’s hair is a “form of everyday resistance,” such as a statement on her part about the revolutionary qualities of her hair, or are we just supposed to take the writer’s word for it?

    You don’t know what you’re talking about.

    Everyone in professional tennis knows that you never, never, hit a ball in any other way than a perfectly paced tap towards a ball kid (and they know exactly how to do this) on a court, where there are people in literally every corner. He didn’t hit the ball that hard relative to what any pro could, but I took a ball hit with less pace than that to my eye once it almost detached my retina.

    Whether it really hurt her or not is not the point. Other players have been defaulted for exactly the same thing and Djokovic and everyone who knows anything about tennis knew he was toast the moment the ball hit the line judge. Had it missed her, he was going to get a point deduction at the least. No other player has ever hit a line judge with a ball hit intentionally (i.e., not one during a point) and NOT been ejected. Your name is a misnomer; if you’re a prime noticer, it’s not of tennis. Doubt you’ve played it either.

    As for the speed of the ball, if you think that was going 15 mph you know even less than I thought. Djokovic could hit a ball 25 mph with the palm of his hand. And when the point is not on, line judges are actually moving around and positioning themselves for the next point; not ‘looking for the ball’.

    Although power has definitely increased with newer racquets, Roscoe Tanner in the 1970s could hit 120 mph serves with a wooden racquet and several players could hit forehands in the 90 mph range as well. What’s really happened is that with the new strings, the power can be better controlled. The old generation could the ball almost as hard, but they couldn’t keep it in the court, so they eased up for control.

    And if you think athletes, on a full sprint (or ending a sprint in a slide on cement!), managing to hit a small spinning ball that is still moving around 60mph into a narrow box over 50 away after clearing a 3 ft net, knowing that if the shot isn’t almost perfect, it’s going to be obliterated into the far corner by an equally fit and skilled athlete, and doing that for 10-30 shots is boring, well I suggest you grab a racquet and go down to the local high school and give it a try.

    English as a discipline has a long history of providing aesthetic rationalizations for colonization, exploitation, extraction, and anti-Blackness. Our discipline is responsible for developing hierarchies of cultural production that have contributed directly to social and systemic determinations of whose lives matter and why.

    . . . so:

    In light of this historical reality, we believe that undoing persistent, recalcitrant anti-Blackness in our discipline and in our institutions must be the collective responsibility of all faculty, here and elsewhere.

    Race, the power of an illusion

    Scientists in the United States spent centuries attempting to find biological differences among racial groups to justify an imagined hierarchy, but it’s past time to dismantle the systems created on those unfounded principles, a panel of experts explained on Friday at a UC Berkeley online event.

    “The United States is structured by a racial hierarchy that we can unmake,” professor Evelynn Hammonds, chair of the Department of the History of Science at Harvard University, said at a Berkeley Conversations livestreamed event that included a screening of Race — The Power of an Illusion, a 17-year-old documentary on the subject.

    Hammonds, who is interviewed in the documentary, expanded on a short remark she made years ago: “We made race. We can unmake it.”

    During the panel discussion, she explained that she did not mean that society should ignore difference, but that it must stop utilizing race to allocate resources and opportunity.

    “We can ensure that scientific explanations of human variation do not serve to support national policies that disadvantage people who are marked as different or other, and that their otherness and their difference is the root cause of the situations that they face,” she said.

    The online event was the first installment of three “Race — The Power of an Illusion” events organized by Berkeley’s Othering & Belonging Institute, in collaboration with the School of Public Health and the Center for Research on Social Change.

    The docuseries’ first episode, “The Difference Between Us,” historicizes the concept of race in order to unravel its mythology as a biological and fundamental fixture of humanity. The film shows how science was used by the political elite in past centuries to serve its interests.

    Elaborating on this thesis, event moderator Osagie Obasogie, a professor of bioethics at Berkeley, said: “Race is a crude social and political category that does not map onto human genetic variation for population differences.”

    “To think racially about the world is by definition a white supremacist project,” he added.

    Racial science became popularized in the U.S. during the 19th century to try to explain stark social and health inequalities, and to attribute those differences to biology instead of society. These findings reinforced programs of segregation, enforced poverty and violence.

    Panelist john a. powell, a Berkeley professor of law and African American studies, said that humans are “meaning-making machines,” and that one way we make sense of the world around us is by attributing shortcomings to individuals and populations.

    He argued that this line of thinking is used to justify acts of racist police violence, such as the murder of George Floyd and the beating of Rodney King. But, he added, we are not stuck with the structures we are given.

    “We have to justify the world in which we live,” powell said, “or try to change it.”

    The conversation shifted to the work of education. Even as race science has been debunked in academia, its impacts continue today. Darlene Francis, a Berkeley professor of public health and neuroscience, noted that methods of racial thinking persist within academic institutions.

    “Our pedagogy and funding agencies are still saddled” with frameworks inherited from eugenicists, she said.

    Leslea Hlusko, a Berkeley professor of integrative biology, added: “So much damage has been done in giving people these ideas that racialization is biology. … We have to figure out how to undo that in society.”

    The panelists concurred that major shifts in scientific thinking must take place, as well as critical acknowledgement of the history of race science.

    “We have these silos in the academy,” Hlusko observed, where academics are trapped within their disciplines. In order to break free from these confines, she urged for collaboration and cross-pollination. Academics need to explore beyond these silos, she said, to become “comfortable in the space in-between.”

    Further Berkeley collaborations and conversations on the topic of race will take place later this month. The second installment of this panel and discussion series is scheduled for Sept. 25.

    Why men sexuality is so complex ?

    It isn’t complex. It just has a wider variance, as with so many things associated with the Y chromosome. Var[g] is greater in men than women. This is modern heresy, but it is true.

    The wider variance in male sexual attraction is trivial to demonstrate via any major porn site such as PornHub. Some men want skinny girls, some men want fat girls, some men want flat girls, some men want busty girls, some men want short girls, some men want tall girls, some men want blonde / brunette / redhead / purple / blue haired girls, some men want hairy girls, some men want shaved girls, the list just goes on and on and on. It isn’t complex. It’s variated.

    This is why most women wind up marrying someone eventually, by the way.

    Women should be grateful for the wider variance in male sexual attraction, since it directly benefits them, but of course women – especially American women – are notoriously ungrateful.

    Yes, as a 22 year old female with no sense of rootedness, she lacks psychological qualities many of us take for granted. But her massive income makes me feel better about detesting her. I guess she’s learned from LeBron, Oprah and the Obamas that even being wealthier and more influential than 99.9% of Americans doesn’t have to stop you from pretending to be oppressed.

    Stan Adams Presents “Girl Talk: A Hairy Situation”

    STACY is sitting in a trendy cafe, chatting with BECKY. JENNIFER walks in.

    BECKY
    Hey, look, it’s JENNIFER.

    STACY
    Oh, my God, is that her? What did she do to her hair? It looks awful!

    BECKY
    She looks like she just escaped from a mental institution.

    STACY
    I seriously think I’m going to barf. I mean, that is just … hideous. She might as well just shave it off and start over. There is no coming back from that.

    BECKY
    If I looked like that, I’d jump off a bridge with a paper bag over my head.

    JENNIFER walks over to their table.

    JENNIFER
    Oh, hi, STACY and BECKY! I didn’t expect to see you here.

    STACY
    Hi, JENNIFER! It’s so great to see you! It’s been a such a long time! Sit down and let’s catch up!

    JENNIFER
    I’d love to, but I’m just picking up a takeout order. I have to meet someone in half an hour.

    STACY
    Chad?

    JENNIFER
    No, not Chad.

    STACY
    Oh, so you’re seeing someone new? Did things not work out with Chad?

    JENNIFER
    Chad is … well, let’s just say he’s history. No, I’m not seeing anyone at the moment.

    STACY
    Oh. Well, I never liked Chad anyway. He always seemed so full of himself.

    BECKY
    You know, we were just talking about your hair.

    JENNIFER
    Really? Do you like it?

    BECKY
    We love it. It’s the perfect look for you.

    STACY
    Yes, it’s wonderful! You look absolutely amazing! Who’s your stylist?

    JENNIFER
    Frederico Fagot. (That’s Fah-Joe.) He’s from Spain.

    STACY
    Oh, he’s a genius! I’ll have to look him up! Is he reasonable?

    JENNIFER
    Oh, yes, his prices are very reasonable.

    STACY
    Wow, what a bargain! You look great!

    JENNIFER
    Well, it’s been great seeing you, but I have to go.

    STACY
    Oh, I wish we had more time to catch up. We’ve got to have lunch some time – the three of us. Promise me.

    JENNIFER
    I promise.

    BECKY
    Bye now.

    STACY
    Ciao!

    JENNIFER
    Take care.

    JENNIFER walks away. As soon as she is out of earshot, STACY and BECKY continue their conversation.

    STACY
    So Chad finally dumped her. Well, if she’s going to walk around in public looking like that, I can’t blame him. You know, the only reason he ever hooked up with her is because she’s such a f**king slut. Her legs are like those barriers that control access to a parking garage. Up and down, in and out, day after day after day. No wonder she has no time to whiten her teeth.

    BECKY
    Is she still working at BigCorp?

    STACY
    As far as I know. Still sleeping her way to the top, I’m sure. You know, for someone with severe mental deficiencies, she earns a pretty decent salary. Too bad she can’t afford to hire a competent hairstylist. She should sue Frederico Fagot for malpractice.

    BECKY
    Did you see the fat hanging off of her arms? I mean, who in their right mind would wear short sleeves with arm fat like that?

    STACY
    I didn’t notice. I was too busy staring at her sagging eyelids. She needs some Botox, stat.

    BECKY
    I couldn’t tell if she was wearing some truly hideous perfume, or if her B.O. is just really funky.

    STACY
    Bless her heart, but she is a stupid c**t.

    BECKY
    Speaking of stupid c**nts, did I tell you about my sister-in-law? The other day…

    “Ever see a friend go nuts over a girl nobody else finds attractive?”

    Once again this is a male-female difference. If a girl has slept with 3/4 of your friends you might hope it’ll soon be your turn, but you’re not likely to want to marry her. But if a man has slept with 3/4 of a woman’s friends, that makes him more attractive as a partner, not less. Pre-selection.

    But if a man finds a woman attractive he doesn’t give a flying one what his friends think of her (in terms of attractiveness – obviously there may be other facets of character he’s unaware of but his friends are). Why should he?

    As with the Academy Award for Best Picture, there may be less here to the University of Chicago English Department’s announcement than meets the eye.

    It may be simply crafted to signal virtue at the cost of little real change. The announcement is hedged, by saying that the restriction is for the 2020-2021 graduate admissions cycle, a period already likely severely affected by the pandemic crisis.

    “Black Studies” appears one of five main fields of study at Chicago’s graduate English Department, the others being British Literature, American Literature, Global Literatures, and Critical Theory.

    Basically, some smart administrator perhaps figured that it would look good if the English Department simply kept admissions open to “Black Studies” while not bothering with the rest of the fields in this off-year.

They ultimately have no voice in public opinion, but you can at least talk to them in private. But there is no such Japanese equivalent. It is simply impossible to find something that resembles an authentic Japanese here because those types wouldn’t come to America right now, much less from a place like Japan.

    You’re right that the fan appeal of tennis varies with ethnicity and also that the by far the biggest determiner of whether one follows it is whether one plays it or has played it, at any level.

    That said, ‘subcons’ (Indians I take it) are massively into tennis, as players and as fans. They’ve been represented at the pro level since the days of Vijay Armitraj in the 70s (especially in doubles) and have a massive presence (in both mens and womens) at the Junior, High School and College level. East Asians are also a presence and you can see the future at any USTA Junior event (once they come back). Black involvement has also increased but this has been absolutely driven like a Mac truck by the USTA. It really appears to be its raison d’être now–get as many Blacks to play as possible.

    But as Steve has pointed out many times, the dog that doesn’t bark in sports is Mexican. Raul Ramirez was a good pro in the 70s, Pancho Gonzalez was truly one of the all time greats well into his 40s (smoking and complaining the whole time), but since then: crickets.

    Japanese people come to the US all the time. Some to work, some to stay. If you define “authentic Japanese food” as only that which is made in Japan by Japanese (or now, Japanese food robots) then you may be correct. That’s a dumb definition. Ingredients are flown in from all over the world.

    Those old-fashioned tradeoffs have been solved, I gather.

    The ‘power/control’ tradeoff is almost not a tradeoff anymore – even for pros. They can dial in performance characteristics to suit their game, as opposed to having some aspect of their game limited by their racquet’s inability to cope.

    New racquets have much larger heads, and the composites used in their manufacture make them remarkably light but still very strong – and the ‘sweet spot’ is larger (a function of modern string materials, which give a ‘stiffer’ hitting bed at any given level of string tension)

    They are also longer overall – longer grips to accommodate two-handedness.

    They’re more ‘forgiving’ at all levels of play; the “tradeoff” between power and control takes place at levels where both power and control are outside the range of most players.

    In fact modern racquets tend to be strung at tensions lower than the frame tolerance, because high tensions cause wrist and elbow injuries.

    A wooden racket with the same string area, would collapse at tensions sufficient to give an adequate hitting zone – doubly so if they were still using gut strings.

    Borg had his tension dialled ‘way up’ (for the time) at ~80lb – on the ‘small head’ style, using gut.

    He broke about 50 strings in a single one tournament, and had racquet frames ‘self destruct’ all the time (spontaneously – i.e., when not in use) despite having an extra layer of wood in his custom frames. McEnroe was ‘normal’ at ~55lb (I think this explains how he was able to do those amazing ‘touch’ shots; Borg’s high tension helps explain his terrific slice backhand)

    Watching games from the 70s and 80s, it looks like Borg, McEnroe, Connors etc – right up to Courier’s early days – were using slightly-oversized badminton racquets.

    When I was a kiddie, I had a Slazenger racquet in the early ’70s and a Donnay ‘endorsed by Borg’ in the late 70s – for under-age tournaments. This was well before every retard in the world thought that local under-age tennis was a pathway to Bollittieri: once ‘pushy parents’ started to take an interest I moved to other things.

    In the late 90s I got dragooned into social doubles by a mate, and was staggered at how much controllable power his modern racquets generated. Like all 30-somethings who try to relive past micro-glories, I proceeded to strain a calf in the third match we played and foreswore tennis from then on.

    It is the law in Japan.

    The two girls were given their mother’s maiden name because of Japanese law that requires children with one foreign parent to take the last name of their Japanese parent in order to be included in their koseki, or family registry.

    Don’t hold your breath on that being called racist.

    Tamaki met Francois in Japan when she was in high school and he was in college.
    The two dated in secret for years, and Tamaki’s family didn’t speak to her for about a decade and a half when they learned of her relationship with Francois. The couple moved to Long Island to live with Francois’ family when Naomi was 3 (she was born in Osaka). But the family reconnected with Tamaki’s family in 2008.

    Bruh, going to a foreign country as a college student and then going out with a teenage girl in high school and going out with her in secret for years behind her parents back despite her family cutting her off. I can’t find any info on what either of them did for jobs. It looks like the father may have already had some kind of permanent residence as he went to college in New York and has family of unspecified type there and that’s how they got in.

    I imagine he was an ‘English teacher’ if anything.

    I’m going to disagree and say that the main limiting factor and cause of dropouts is physical ability (genetics / nature).

    There are probably 100+ people who work as hard and with as much commitment as each pro/elite athlete but who don’t have the physical traits necessary for elite performance in that sport (though i’m sure it varies by sport. e.g. training and effort has much more impact in power-lifting, hockey or gymnastics than it does in sprinting or jumping).

    Conversely if you are physically “gifted” for that sport, at least in America or someplace else with a youth program, it’s actually pretty easy to stay motivated. Yes you have to put in some work, but in the early stages you’re always getting much better results for your efforts than everyone around you so you get a lot of positive reinforcement in the form of praise, coaching attention and additional training opportunities. Once you get to the higher levels then the commitment kicks in (unless you’re Usain Bolt) but of people who start a sport MANY more are culled due to non-elite physical genes vs non-elite effort)

    I believe it’s about the fact that black genes are dominant and even the 1/8 blacks look black. Even people who think they’re White the curly hair, something about the nose cheekbones.

    They look black, Therefore they are black.

    Asian White hapas often look more White than Asian, especially if the White is a typical N European. Since they have their White father’s surnames, people assume they’re White.

    Plus, that’s why Asian women pursue White men. They want taller, fairer kids. It’s amazing in California. You never see an asian mom White Dad Family with a Persian Armenian White brunette dad. The dad’s always fair skin blue eyes and brown hair.

    Same with aborigine White mixes in Australia. The White genes are dominant, aboriginal recessive.

    Because they look black even the 1/4 and many 1/8, they consider themselves black.

    When a woman dyes her hair blond red or a different shade of brown, we don’t call her a brunette with red hair. We call her a red head.

    Literary criticism and English lit is just BS.
    Read a book someone else wrote and talk and write about it. Why? And have an entire college industry about it.

    Here’s an excellent example of literary criticism I’m very familiar with. The first Jane Austen book I ever read was Mansfield Park when I was 10 or 11. There was a long preface in which some stupid old fart professor explained the book to readers. That particular book was published in the 193os when Freudian sex is everything predominated everything.

    Mansfield Park is about a girl who’s raised by an uncle and aunt and married her cousin, one of their sons. Aunt and uncle are very happily married.

    Well, this stupid old fart professor claimed the uncle loved his wife only because he was sublimating his sexual lust for his niece. And she only married her cousin because she lusted for the uncle.

    Young as I was, I knew it was BS. Because the aunt and uncle had been married at least 18, maybe more years before they even met the niece. Their oldest son was 17 when they first met her. The uncle was off in parliament half the time and seldom saw the girls when he was home. The niece, Fanny was scared of him and didn’t like him. I knew it was just bullshit. And some stupid old fart was paid to write that preface.

    I’m an Austen fan. Her plots are about girls meeting Mr wonderful or at least acceptable. But she’s incredibly sarcastic caustic and perceptive. If you’ve seen Sense and Sensibility; those scenes where their sister in law persuaded their brother to disinherit them is the epitome of Austen’s nasty characters.

    Over the years the Mansfield Park prefaces and movies have changed according to fashions in academia and lit crit. For a while the book crusaded against Caribbean slavery. It doesn’t. Then it was Marxism. Jane Austen was a wealthy woman who write about evil wealthy people and didn’t mention the Peterborough massacres, the bread riots the plight of the poor factory and farm workers Bad Jane bad Jane!!!!

    Then the lit crit scumbags got into feminism. Jane was a feminist, good Jane good Jane. Jane was definitely not a feminist. Part of Emma is about how dreadful, horrible disastrous it is that character Jane Fairfax trained as a teacher and will have to work for a living A fate worse than not working and living on a poverty level pension like the Bates women. Jane Fairfax is saved by marrying the wealthiest man in the book.

    Mrs Norton Charlotte Lucas Maria Bertram and Mary Bennett all marry men they don’t like for someone to support them. That’s the world Austen lived in and write about, not feminism.

    Jane was no feminist. She didn’t make much from her books. She, her sister and her mother lived on about $90,000 net a year contributed by her 6 or 8 brothers

    Freudian to anti capitalist Marxism to anti slavery to feminism what’s next for Jane Austen lit crit?

    There’s a Mansfield Park movie in which Fanny is presented as a belligerent feminist and the other girls are presented as sweet shy wimps.
    Fanny is actually the prototype of of all those Victorian heroines, sweet shy helpless wimps. She’s actually the only woman in all the novels who’s shy helplesss goody goody.

    Much of it is the way they are raised. There’s enormous physical abuse that goes far beyond spankings. That’s why their so many in foster homes. For most of the girls and many boys there’s sex abuse. Brother sister incest is very common. Then there’s all the male relatives and mamma’s friends molesting the girls. Many, many black kids don’t realize incest and molestation by relatives is not normal.

    Really. Black boys who go to school with Whites and talk about sex are astonished that White boys don’t routinely do their sisters. They think it’s normal.

    If you’d been viciously whipped and beaten by your 300 pound mamma from the time you could crawl plus been molested by relatives from an early age, you’d be vicious and nasty too.

    Being nasty, vicious and mean is also genetic.

  229. @vhrm

    We’re not disagreeing.

    I’m saying extreme personal commitment is a necessary but not sufficient condition of elite athletic performance. Some other necessary conditions are excellent genetics for the particular sport, an early enough start, high level coaching, necessary facilities, no career ending injuries, etc. Different proportions needed depending on the sport, and more of one can sometimes fill in for less of another.

    The point relative to the previous poster is that no one becomes a pro athlete just because their parents force them. It’s just not possible… so we shouldn’t dismissively suggest that anyone who achieved that level was merely pushed there.

    Now on the other hand… LOTS of people who never become great were strongarmed by parents trying to MAKE them great against their inclinations (and abilities). This is where the disasters happen.

  230. @YetAnotherAnon

    Of course I never suggested that sports performance doesn’t involve genetics and if you bothered reading you would have seen that.

    On a related note though, too many white people DO have some imaginary media created idea of blacks as naturally amazing universal athletes and use this perception as an excuse for becoming fat, weak, timid pieces of crap. I’m soft and unaesthetic because muh bad genes… not the fact that I play nintendo and watch marvel movies all day instead of doing calisthenics or lifting

    From an orthodox Christian perspective, to say that only one race is capable of sin is, in essence, to say that only that race is fully human. The rest are subhumans, animals, who are not responsible for their sin in God’s eyes, and hence play no part in God’s plan of redemption. Ultimately, it’s saying that Jesus died only for white people.
