The White Supremacy Numbers Game

Liberals all over the net are unspeakably delighted that Craig Cobb is said to be of 14% Sub-Saharan African descent. They couldn't be happier. This is, of course, in complete contradiction to their sacred principle that race doesn't exist. And the incident of course leads to eruction of other liberal propositions. On one site, a liberal duckspoke:

"He should have paid more attention in junior high science class. We are all from Africa."

Are we now? He means, of course, that the human species originated in Africa, but how such a fact invalidates anything that Mr. Cobb thinks or says is unexplained. Naturally, I know what the liberal meant. He meant that, magically, if you have ancestors from a given continent, it's invalid for you to assert that you differ in any significant way from other people who happen to live on that continent now, or whose ancestors came from that continent more recently than yours did. Stretching his principle a little further, it's racism to claim that chimps or gorillas differ in any important way from human beings.  After all, we all came from Africa.

But that's just what he derives from the Law of Similarity, or whatever principle of sorcery liberals apply in such cases.  What he's thinking, if you can call it thinking, is that two organisms that share a common ancestor can't differ in any significant way. Since all dogs have wolf ancestors, all breeds of dog are essentially equal, and it's pure bigotry to use border collies to herd sheep instead of, say, chihuahuas.

And on top of all that, the liberals seem to have clutched the one-drop rule to their bosoms, asserting that anybody with any nonWhite ancestors simply isn't White.  This makes liberals far more strict than the supporters of the Nuremberg Laws.

And, going still further, it seems that the DNA test isn't really terribly reliable. This from the Traditionalist Youth Network:

Craig Cobb: The Black White Supremacist?


Is Craig Cobb- a BLACK white supremacist?
As part of Trisha Goddard‘s Race in America series, Craig Cobb submitted himself to a DNA test to allow examination of his genetic profile.  The results were surprising, but only if you buy into the “junk science” that supports these kinds of spotty tests.  The DNA test results purport that Cobb is 14% sub-Saharan African, and when the anti-white activist community heard about this they went off the deep end about how he’s “not white.”
The margin of error in ancestry profiling can be as high as 15%.  Unlike the anti-white community, let’s not take these things too seriously.      
Robert Estes of DNAExplain.com explains this in more detail,
“Results were reported within confidence bands, which indicate a range of percentages that might actually be accurate. This is shown above by the bands surrounding the red dot which shows the “most likely” result. The margin of error is often as high as 15%. Typically, there is no dispute over the majority ancestral type. However, minority types are apparently much more difficult to discern. Because of the wide and sometimes surprising range of results, this test was often considered unreliable, but the degree of unreliability sometimes was determined by how pleased the tester was with their results.”
The only thing stranger than Trisha Goddard trying to “fist bump” Cobb and symbolically welcome him into “tha’ brothahood” is how the left suddenly decides that race is not a social construct anymore.  Ta-Nehisi Coats, writing for The Atlantic, was unequivocally clear when he articulated that “race is a social construct.”
“Indeed. Race does not need biology. Race only requires some good guys with big guns looking for a reason.”
I suppose this was Coats’ way of slamming racial sensibilities by tangent of “guns = violence”, which is an easy argument to make for The Atlantic’s audience, but wait– because it gets better.  He references one of his favored blogs and praises author Freddie Deboer’s view as exemplar of how we should be approaching the question of race.
Quoting Deboer, Coats writes,
“The problem with people who argue for inherent racial inferiority is not that they lie about the results of IQ tests, but that they are credulous about those tests and others like them when they shouldn’t be; that they misunderstand the implications of what those tests would indicate even if they were credible; and that they fail to find the moral, analytic, and political response to questions of race and intelligence.”
Let’s read that quote again, but we’ll replace “racial inferiority” with “racial equality”, and “IQ tests” with “DNA tests.”
“The problem with people who argue for inherent racial equality is not that they lie about the results of DNA tests, but that they are credulous about those tests and others like them when they shouldn’t be; that they misunderstand the implications of what those tests would indicate even if they were credible; and that they fail to find the moral, analytic, and political response to questions of race and intelligence.”
Let that roll around in your head for a moment…  Got it?
That, folks, is what the proper response would be to the crowd which talks about how all humans are “99.9% the same.”  In effect, what happened among the anti-whites after hearing the results of Craig Cobb’s DNA test was that they suddenly decided that race DOES exist, and that it’s no longer a social construct.  Well, not exactly, but what really happened is the anti-white community decided that “black” is a race after all, and that “one drop” really is enough.  Even if that drop was squeezed out of a spotty DNA test.  The queer thing is that It doesn’t seem to register as inconsistent with them to simultaneously maintain that there’s no such thing as a “white” race.
The funniest part about this entire episode of Cobb’s DNA test is not the results of the test itself, rather it’s how the anti-white community reacted to it.
If the anti-white community decided that Cobb is black, then why would they continue to malign him as an evil white supremacist naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews?  (Read the rest HERE.)

  1. The rumor in my family has always been that we are Scots-Irish, German, and Cherokee. I should have a DNA swab twist done. It's also been proved that all non-Africans have some Neanderthal DNA. I have blond hair and blue eyes. Yet I look exactly like...a white man.
