Yes, Virginia, Race Exists, Again

"Race doesn't exist." "The Mafia doesn't exist." The only difference between the two statements is that the MAG (Media, Academia, Government) doesn't really care about the Mafia, or Italians, or any of that stuff, so we all laugh at the second one. The first one we're supposed to take seriously. Elsewhere on the net, some fool just "proved" that race doesn't exist because if a White person and a Black person have a child, the child is neither White nor Black. Zounds! If you can mix two races, you see, races don't exist.  Although, if races don't exist, how in the hell can you talk about mixing two races? All this is in aid, of course, of sneering at everybody's common sense. And of derailing any and all discussions of race by saying that race doesn't exist. Unless they WANT to talk about race, you know, like Eric Holder does now and then, and then it's okay. But in instances where Black criminals attack White people, we don't discuss race, because race doesn't exist.  Anyhow, since most race-deniers get their information from TV shows, you can show them the quibcag above.

  1. The logic of that statement is exactly equal to saying that because there are people who are neither short nor tall, there is no such thing as height.

    Someone has decided they can use the same arguments again even though they were already proven wrong.

      The point is that he continues to hate and calls it fact even when proven otherwise

    3. So pointing the contradictions of people who insist there is no such thing as race is hatred?

      In purely scientific terms, there really isnt, not to the point that the author claims in other posts.

    5. On what basis do you make that claim? Still you haven't answered my question so I ask it again:

      How is pointing the contradictions of people who insist there is no such thing as race is hatred?

      Because it is not about the contradiction it is about using the idea of race as a jumping off point to claim all sorts of things about people based on the color of their skin, and bad science. So that is hate, believing you are superior based on something you did not have to do anything to achieve

    7. So only Non-Whites can bring up race but White people can't? So hate is opinions you don't like or agree with. Screaming hate or whatever does not make for a compelling argument. I would love to see you tell black muslims or the La Razans the same thing. Do you?

      No, the author brings it up in order to make a claim for superiority, as he does in this article.

      http://ex-army.blogspot.com/2013/10/not-all-libertarians-are-stupid-about.html

      He brings it up in order to claim that others are by nature inferior, which has been proven wrong. His opinions are hate because he is an admitted racist, but for some reason he has excused himself because he does not believe his ideas are harmful. But believing someone is inferior based on race is harmful, it allowed for the mistreatment of human beings, thinking, feeling human beings. That is why his opinions are hateful, because they are driven not by science, or any rational arguments but by an underlying feeling of superiority based on the color of his skin. He is trying to use "science" to prove that his bigotry is not bigotry but actually has a rational basis. By establishing that basis with those who will believe such nonsense, he is able to claim that race wars exist, and that that the inferior are trying to get rid of their betters. That is hate, and that is what he does in his blog time and time again. Race as a scientific term does not exist. Genetically we can determine from what population a person comes from, but those do not constitute races or subspecies. Race as social concept does exist, and has been the basis for incredible acts of hate. There is a difference between the two. People experience racial tensions as a social concept, not as a scientific fact.

    9. You can't come up with a better argument than shrieks and hysterics?

      Have you tried telling black people that race is just a concept? Try it some time, they will think that you are touched in the head.

      I think many would agree. There is nothing that makes them inferior, and the only thing that keeps them from being recognized as such by all, is the fear people have of others. While they have their own culture within the larger culture, as any group would, they are not different from the rest of humanity

    11. You may think many would agree, but if you tried telling them race is just a concept, you will more resistance from them than most whites. That has been my experience (I too, use to be an earnest young liberal) If you feel uncomfortable broaching the subject then don't , it's not worth getting your butt kicked.

      Well from a Chrisitan perspective, and I know not everyone is, but that is always where I must begin from, "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3.28). We are told that God sees us all in this light, and we must as well. All cultural contructs must be abandoned. So the church must not look at those who suffer and judge by any earthly criteria, but see all as equally loved by God.

      I believe that applies to Christians only.

      In 2 Cor 5 indicated a universality, since Christ died for all and therefore all died, all must be under the statement made by Paul in Galatians, Christians and non-Christians alike.

    15. So would that mean that all will go to Heaven?

    16. Eager Young LiberalOctober 19, 2013 at 6:27 PM

      Personally, I believe so. I mean while there are conservative Christians who hold up the passages of the the condemned but there are just as many universalist passages that they cannot ignore. I believe that we at least have hope for universal salvation.

  3. If race doesn't exist then an Australian aborigine would become undetectable at the Highland Games if he wore a kilt.

    quote:
    "Forensic examiners differentiate between hairs of Caucasoid (European ancestry), Mongoloid (Asian ancestry), and Negroid (African ancestry) origin, all of which exhibit microscopic characteristics that distinguish one racial group from another."

  5. I am an college student and majoring in anthropology. Race does not exist on a biological level.

    1. "I am an college student and majoring in anthropology." No doubt. Clearly you're not majoring in grammar.
