(Detrimental) Effects of Multiculturalism

u/cg_roseen · 1 pointr/syriancivilwar

Great write up, and important things to remember going forward, and when addressing criticism of the system.

After reading this, I had some concerns and thoughts about the Federation, myself. I did a little write-up for my own self-reference, but I'm thinking it might be fruitful to share here.

Don't know whether it'd be considered off topic, but I think this kind of discussion is always useful.

Some of it is a little dated now, and perhaps not entirely relevant to this discussion, but here's what I wrote:


>Firstly, I must state that I found the book enlightening and informative. But particular issues have been playing on mind that I feel should be addressed in order to ensure the democratic confederalist system transcends the paradigm of the war itself, and becomes a legitimate entity in some kind of post-war Syria.

>I find it most appropriate to deal with the individual issues separately, as follows:

>The deification of Abdullah Ocalan - Reading the authors’ observations on democratic confederalism, one of my primary concerns was with the seeming deification of Abdullah Ocalan by Kurdish activists and, more significantly, the YPG/J. The personality cult that seems to exist around Ocalan, in Northern Syria, will only feed critics who denounce the Federation as a ‘Kurdish cult’. Holding Ocalan in such high esteem also contradicts democratic confederalist values of equality between people and a rejection of hierarchy. Even though Ocalan’s importance is primarily spiritual, and his thoughts on the dem-con ideology is inseparable from the project, it risks alienating non-Kurdish elements that might otherwise seek a dialogue with the Federation or see the benefits of entering into a similar confederation.

>PKK ties - Continuing on from my concerns about the deification of Ocalan, another significant obstacle to attracting a wider base of support for the Federation comes from its relationship with the PKK. It is inappropriate to label the YPG, or indeed the PYD (or indeed, TEV-DEM) an ‘arm’ or ‘offshoot’ of the PKK. But it is also impossible to deny that without the PKK the Federation would not exist. PKK affiliates (armed and political) provided logistical support to the early revolutionaries, and earlier councils models in Kurdish Turkey inspired the Syrian council system as it is today. Going forward, the ideal would be for the Federation to denounce all ties to the PKK or, failing that, to distinguish between the PKK’s armed and political wings. Though this is highly unlikely, more must be done to promote the Federations distinctly Syrian identity, to defer from criticism from (primarily) Turkey that the PKK and Federation are one in the same.

>Transparency - Another principle of democratic confederalism is transparency with the people. To this end, regular publication of the canton’s demographics and council makeups may help to dispel criticisms that the Federation is ‘Kurd-dominated’ or ‘Kurd-centric’. Furthermore, the Federation should go above and beyond to promote and publicise inclusion of Arabs within the council system. The Democratic Council might also do well to regularly restate its commitment to a unified Syria. This will help to detract criticisms that the Federations backers are separatists. Also linked to this is the need to be more transparent about actions taken against ENKS. Some inclusion of more Islamist-orientated political parties would also help win over some popular support, in this regard. The Federation's highly secular outlook might prove problematic going forward if it excludes genuinely popular, grassroots Islamist movements.

>Disband all military councils west of Euphrates (with exception of Raqah) - In another move to ease western (primarily Turkish) concern over SDF ‘aggression’, disbanding the Jarablus and al-Bab military councils, as a sign of goodwill, might go some way to improving the Federation’s relations with its neighbours.

>Disband/reorganise Asayish - Centre of most scandals within the Federation, the Asayish are difficult to independently oversee and regulate during wartime. Their arbitrary arrests and lack of transparency provide fertile opportunity for political opponents to claim discrimination. Human Rights Watch notes multiple war crimes accusations made against Asayish. In order to rebuild trust between communities and police, Asayish will need to be replaced, and all members re-organised. Those against whom accusations have been made should be handed over to international courts.

>Education boards - One of my main concerns when reading the book, was that education was too loosely regulated. Whilst it may not be a problem at the moment, without a centralised education system, the education system is vulnerable to subjective influence from a number of groups. The book focuses on the reclamation of ‘Kurdish’ education (Kurdish culture, Kurdish language) and brushes over the wishes of the Arab populations. To this end, more must be done to ensure the impartiality of the education system, and prevent it becoming too influenced by parents. In the west, at least, educational autonomy has proved dangerous as common narratives are allowed to creep into historical paradigms (we are taught what is commonly accepted, not what is necessarily true). Without a radical overhaul of the education system, I would feel the introduction of educational boards (who work with the educational committees) to be the best way of ensuring political neutrality prevails in schooling up to the age of 16.

>Economic agreements w/centralised body - To me, the book’s weakest point is in its assessment of the Federation’s economy. What kind of centralised body will take shape in post-war Syria is yet to be seen, but it will undoubtedly need to develop a relationship with the Federation in regards to oil distribution across the country. An area rich in oil, like Jazyra, again must co-ordinate with a centralised organisation in order to ensure the fair distribution of natural resources to as many civilians as possible. In order to ensure this, the Federation - in any future negotiations - must push for regulations, such as price-capping in future sales, in exchange for oil. This way, natural resources are distributed as evenly as possible, with a safeguard against exploitation by outside bodies.

>For all its strengths, the book fails to really look deeply into how successful the system of governance is. Instead, its authors are too preoccupied with saying how wonderful everything is, without giving us a clue as to how the actual civilians view it. Save for some examples of economic co-operatives (TEV-DEM’s spin on kibbutz, I suppose), the book fails to paint a real portrait of life in the Federation’s cities, aside from its descriptions of the governing system. It also fails to look critically at the system, instead painting opposition with one broad stroke - as though it were one big anti-PYD conspiracy.

If I was going to provide someone with a list of books that best expressed my current thinking on the Political Economy these would be my top ones:

  1. The Law - While over a century old this books stands as the perfect intro to the ideas of Classical Liberalism. When you understand the core message of this book you understand why people oppose so many aspects of government action.
  2. Seeing Like A State - The idea that society can be rebuilt from the top down is well demolished in this dense but important read. The concept of Legibility was a game changer for my brain.
  3. Stubborn Attachments - This books presents a compelling philosophical argument for the importance of economic growth. It's hard to overstate how important getting the balance of economic growth vs other considerations actually is.
  4. The Breakdown of Nations - A classic text on why the trend toward "bigger" isn't a good thing. While various nits can be picked with this book I think its general thesis is holding up well in our increasingly bifurcated age.
  5. The Joy of Freedom - Lots of books, many objectively better, could have gone here but this book was my personal pivot point which sent me away from Socialism and towards capitalism. This introduction to "Libertarian Capitalism" is a bit dated now but it was powerful.

    There are, of course many more books that could go on this list. But the above list is a good sampling of my personal philosophy of political economy. It is not meant as a list of books to change your mind but simply as a list of books that are descriptive of my current belief that we should be orientated towards high (sustainable) economic growth & more decentralization.

    Some honorable mentions:

    As a self proclaimed "Libertarian Crunchy Con" I have to add The Quest for Community & Crunchy Cons

    The book The Fourth Economy fundamentally changed my professional direction in life.

    Anti-Fragile was another book full of mind blowing ideas and shifted my approach to many things.

    The End of Jobs is a great combination of The Fourth Economy & Anti-Fragile (among other concepts) into a more real-world useful set of ideas.

    Markets Not Capitalism is a powerful reminder that it is not Capitalism per se that is important but the transformational power of markets that need be unleashed.

    You will note that I left out pure economic books, this was on purpose. There are tons of good intro to econ type books and any non-trained economist should read a bunch from a bunch of different perspectives. With that said I am currently working my way through the book Choice and if it stays as good as it has started that will probably get added to my core list.

    So many more I could I list like The Left, The Right, & The State or The Problem of Political Authority and on it goes...
    I am still looking for a "manifesto" of sorts for the broad movement towards decentralization (I have a few possibilities on my 'to read list') so if you know of any that might fit that description let me know.

Absolutely. Any time you want confirmation of a statement, just ask.

Harvard professor of political science Robert D. Putnam conducted a nearly decade long study how multiculturalism affects social trust. He surveyed 26,200 people in 40 American communities, finding that–when the data were adjusted for class income and other factors–the more racially diverse a community is, the greater the loss of trust. People in diverse communities “don’t trust the local mayor, they don't trust the local paper, they don't trust other people and they don’t trust institutions,” writes Putnam. In the presence of such ethnic diversity, Putnam maintains that “…we hunker down. We act like turtles. The effect of diversity is worse than had been imagined. And it’s not just that we don’t trust people who are not like us. In diverse communities, we don’t trust people who do look like us.

Even Halyard knows this is all a pile of “feel good” shit. Like a religion, it relies on persecuting those who don’t agree to keep itself mainstream thought.

After the study was released, Putnam was intimidated and harassed because he was accused of helping racists. He later came out and gave a very vague statement saying diversity “had problems but was worth it in the long run” to keep these morons appeased. This statement gives no indication of the “long run” and, in fact, is not quantified by anything.

According to conflict theory, distrust between ethnic groups rises with diversity, but not within a group. Putnam describes people of all races and socioeconomic statuses, ages, and both sexes as “hunkering down,” avoiding engagement with their local community–both among different ethnic groups and within their own ethnic group. Even when controlling for income inequality and crime rates–two factors which conflict theory states should be the prime causal factors in declining interethnic group trust–more diversity is still associated with less communal trust.

  1. Lowered trust in areas with high diversity is also associated with:
  2. Lower confidence in local government, local leaders, and the local news media
  3. Lower political efficacy–that is, confidence in one’s own influence
  4. Lower frequency of registering to vote, but more interest and knowledge about politics and more participation in protest marches and social reform groups.
  5. Higher political advocacy, but lower expectations that it will bring about a desirable result
  6. Less expectation that others will cooperate to solve dilemmas of collective action (e.g. voluntary conservation to ease a water or energy shortage)
  7. Less likelihood of working on a community project
  8. Less likelihood of giving to charity or volunteering
  9. Fewer close friends and confidants
  10. Less happiness and lower perceived quality of life
  11. More time spent watching television and more agreement that “television is my most important form of entertainment”

    Putnam’s study was published in 2001. Genetic cluster analysis of the micro satellite markers produced four major clusters, which showed near perfect correspondence with the four self-reported race/ethnicity categories. Of 3636 subjects, only 5 (0.14%) showed genetic cluster membership different from their self-identified race/ethnicity.

    Good Fences: The Importance of Setting Boundaries for Peaceful Coexistence

    Alex Rutherford, Dion Harmon, Justin Werfel, Shlomiya Bar-Yam, Alexander Gard-Murray, Andreas Gros, Yaneer Bar-Yam

    We consider the conditions of peace and violence among ethnic groups, testing a theory designed to predict the locations of violence and interventions that can promote peace. Characterizing the model’s success in predicting peace requires examples where peace prevails despite diversity. Switzerland is recognized as a country of peace, stability, and prosperity. This is surprising because of its linguistic and religious diversity that in other parts of the world lead to conflict and violence. Here we analyze how peaceful stability is maintained. Our analysis shows that peace does not depend on integrated coexistence, but rather on well-defined topographical and political boundaries separating groups. Mountains and lakes are an important part of the boundaries between sharply defined linguistic areas. Political canton and circle (sub-canton) boundaries often separate religious groups.

    Where such boundaries do not appear to be sufficient, we find that specific aspects of the population distribution either guarantee sufficient separation or sufficient mixing to inhibit intergroup violence according to the quantitative theory of conflict. In exactly one region, a porous mountain range does not adequately separate linguistic groups and violent conflict has led to the recent creation of the canton of Jura. Our analysis supports the hypothesis that violence between groups can be inhibited by physical and political boundaries. A similar analysis of the area of the former Yugoslavia shows that during widespread ethnic violence, existing political boundaries did not coincide with the boundaries of distinct groups, but the peace prevailed in specific areas where they did coincide. The success of peace in Switzerland may serve as a model to resolve conflict in other ethnically diverse countries and regions of the world.

The Soul of Man Under Socialism by Oscar Wilde -- an introduction to libertarian socialism, a foreign topic to most people ("isn't that, like, an oxymoron?") but pretty rewarding and interesting once you get into it.

If you care about current events (and this one is highly important), you can read about what's going on in Rojava, in Northern Syria. To understand the character of what they're doing there and their social revolution you can read Murray Bookchin and Abdullah Ocalan. They've both written a lot but it doesn't take much to understand the gist of their ideas and, more importantly, how they're being applied right now in Rojava. Democratic confederalism is the name of the specific system at work in Rojava.

Books I can recommend that have to do with the above:

A Small Key Can Open A Large Door: Rojava Revolution

Rojava: An Alternative to Imperialism, Nationalism, and Islamism in the Middle East

To Dare Imagining: Rojava Revolution

Revolution in Rojava: Democratic Autonomy and Women's Liberation in Syrian Kurdistan

Most everything on this list

War and Peace in Kurdistan

Democratic Confederalism

Obviously that's a fairly dense list. You don't have to read all those. But I do suggest you at least look into Rojava and the ideology behind it on a basic level, as in my opinion it's one of the most important developments in the world right now and it's fascinating to see the application of democratic confederalism, autonomous self-organization, ethnic and religious plurality, and women's liberation on such an impressive scale.

On the topic of movies, it just so happens that there are a number of Rojava documentaries which might help you gain a basic understanding of what it's like there. You can find plenty by looking up "Rojava documentary". Here's a good one. This is the most recent, I believe.

Good studies!

u/kwxt2 · 8 pointsr/cfs

Sexplanations is a great channel and I'm so excited to see Dr. Doe make a video about Disability and Sex. It's a pretty giant overview, but hits a lot of important points that are applicable to CFS. This is a topic that's come up repeatedly on the chat groups and I thought it might be nice to bring here.

I especially liked her clarification that people with disabilities can be gay/straight/bi/poly/trans/asexual/kinky/vanilla/whatever - that sexuality is not defined by disability. As I've gotten to know people from this community (r/cfs) I've met people with many different sexual orientations and preferences.

Dr. Doe also talks about how people with disabilities are often desexualized which is something I certainly found as I got sicker.

And I appreciated her mention that some people fetishize disabilities in a harmful way. When I first started dating post-cfs I found this quite a bit (ick!)

I wish she had talked a little bit more about tactics for us to work around our physical limitations in our love lives. I've found this community very helpful in that area but haven't seen it talked about publicly very much. Perhaps in a future video.

----
As an aside, the book that Dr. Doe recommends at 5:50 (The Ultimate Guide to Sex and Disability) was actually shown to me by someone on here a while back. It's a good book and does a nice job of including energy disabilities. If you're starting to figure out how sexuality/dating/sex works with CFS it's worth checking out.

Hey, I did that whole thing a couple years ago at 32. Enjoy the exhilarating terror! It was all-consuming for me for a while, and I still get euphoria bumps of "holy shit I fucking love women" but I think that might just be what it feels like to actually be interested in people?? Who knew!

>Is there a handbook or something I could follow? /s

You joke, but Late Bloomers was recommended to me in a few places. I had a mixed reaction to it; I was hoping it'd have more stories (or any at all) from women (like me) who had just been in pure denial. If it matches your experience more closely, you may get a lot more out of it than I did. That said, it was good to read to help normalize what I was feeling. There are other, similar books on the 'Customers Also Bought' section, but this is the only one I personally read.

Aside from that, I immersed myself in other gay-lady media: movies, TV, blogs, articles, tumblrs, whatever. I dabbled around a bit on personals sites, and enjoyed how normal/good chatting ladies up felt even if the meetings were meh. You've also got the added hook of having kids -- I don't know of any to refer, but I'd have to think there are lesbian parenting forums out there full of women with your experience.

Good luck, have fun, relish the feeling.

Much like how a nation is not created by its land or borders, but the people with a shared heritage and culture who inhabit it, it's not the section 8 homes: it's the people living in them.

And this is where I diverge with the rest of /r/the_donald, so please excuse me.

You'll also notice that the crime in Chicago, like anywhere else, heavily corresponds with race. I can't access sources right now, but if you removed non-whites from Chicago, something like 90% of murders would disappear overnight.

To be clear, this is a defense of ethnic homogeneity. Doesn't have to mean "100% this or that people", but striving for it shouldn't be a crime. In fact it's the natural state of things imo

I haven't read any really academic type stuff, but I have read some pretty great books of a radically queer nature.

I just finished reading From Transgender to Transhuman: A Manifesto on the Freedom of Form and would highly recommend it. However, definitely go for the hard copy rather than the kindle version, as the etext is marred with formatting issues. In this expanded second edition of The Apartheid of Sex, she advocates an end to the legal separation of people based on genitals as well as even cooler things in the future as technology further erodes the reason for divisions between people based on genitals, or even social roles or meat/non-meat status. Her experience as a lawyer really shows in her ability to make concise, effective arguments for her points.

I would also suggest Whipping Girl by Julia Serano. I don't know if it's really that radical, but her understanding and explanation of sexism and it's impact on all people is pretty damn awesome in my opinion.

Also, for a more pot pourri style smattering of essays and such, I'd recommend GENDERqUEER, voices from beyond the sexual binary and Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation.

u/gbd_628 · 1 pointr/SlaughteredByScience

Haven't you ever wondered why the scientific consensus is the opposite of your claims?

For starters, IQ isn't a great all-around measure of intelligence. It does accurately predict social outcomes and is highly correlated with many intellectual and academic accomplishments, but it has severe flaws. Take for example the Flynn Effect: previous generations had much lower IQ scores than today, when normalized to be on the same scale. The rapid increase of IQ globally (Great Britain saw an increase of 15 points in 70 years) cannot be explained by any plausible genetic explanation—the increase has simply been too fast. Genetic effects couldn't have spread throughout the entire population. There is also no plausible argument that general intelligence has improved by that much. If it had, 40% of the British population a century ago would be mentally damaged by today's standards.

The reasons for the Flynn Effect are unclear. A rise in standardized testing and formal schooling appears to be at least part of it. What is clear is that when comparing people from wildly different environments, IQ is a poor measure of general intelligence. (When comparing people from similar environments, it does remarkably well. The reasons for this are still being studied.)

_

Even if IQ were a good measure of intelligence (which it isn't), that doesn't mean IQ score differences are genetic. Indeed, we know for a fact that they aren't.

Take the Burakumin of Japan. They are an ostracized class and have been for centuries; due to complex religious/spiritual/social reasons, if you have an ancestor who engaged in an "unclean" profession (e.g., a prostitute, a butcher, an actor, etc.), you too are unclean and are socially inferior. The important thing is that the class is genetically identical to the rest of the Japanese population. You can't tell the difference by looking, which is why the Burakumin were forced to get tattoos, and why corporations started keeping lists of who was Burakumin so they knew who not to hire. Today, while those lists are banned, they are still socially stigmatized, and the group forms the ranks of the Japanese mafia, with the tattoos becoming a source of pride.

Anyway, the average have an IQ of the Burakumin is 10-15 points lower than the average Japanese person. See here. This is the same as the gap between white Americans and black Americans. Importantly, both gaps have been shrinking. Most interestingly, the Japanese gap completely disappears among immigrants to the United States—the people here don't know that they're supposed to discriminate against one of the groups.

Similar stories of vanishing IQ gaps appear all over the field. Adopting someone at three years old from Sub-Saharan Africa into a European family cuts the IQ gap by 15 points., cutting the IQ gap in half. The remaining gap, to reiterate, is the same sized that is known to be caused by discrimination. And note further that this is without any improved pre-natal care, which is known to be extremely important to a child's health.

_


Finally, this is all assuming that "race" is a thing, scientifically speaking, which it isn't. To draw an analogy, it's like constellations. Yes, some stars are closer to others. But the physical differences have little connection with how they appear in the sky, any anyways are not clustered into distinct groups. The stars and the distances between them exist; the pictures only exist in your head. I mean, the idea of "whiteness" isn't even self-consistent and varies across time. Are Poles white? Are Russians? Are Italians? Are Southern-Europeans? Are North-Africans and Middle-Easterners? Are Indians? Are Jews? Are Spaniards? Are Mexicans? Are Chileans? (The last few are the most hilarious currently—the jumps required to assert that South Americans are genetically inferior to "us", but "us" includes the Spanish and Portuguese, are hilarious.)

__

Race doesn't exist the way you think it does. Intelligence might, based on the g-factor (scores in completely different aptitude tests are correlated, suggesting a legitimate "general intelligence"), but IQ is not a good measure of it cross-populations. Intelligence is not a metric of moral standing; the Jews aren't naturally the superiors of everyone else just because they have higher IQ. And IQ differences are entirely explainable by environmental factors.

Dr. Thomas Sowell wrote an amazing book on this topic. The Vision of the Anointed: Self-Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy

Sowell discusses the premise behind Vision of the Anointed

>Sowell presents a devastating critique of the mind-set behind the failed social policies of the past thirty years. Sowell sees what has happened during that time not as a series of isolated mistakes but as a logical consequence of a tainted vision whose defects have led to crises in education, crime, and family dynamics, and to other social pathologies. In this book, he describes how elites—the anointed—have replaced facts and rational thinking with rhetorical assertions, thereby altering the course of our social policy.

Also Intellectuals and Race

>Intellectuals and Race is a radical book in the original sense of one that goes to the root of the problem. The role of intellectuals in racial strife is explored in an international context that puts the American experience in a wholly new light.

>The views of individual intellectuals have spanned the spectrum, but the views of intellectuals as a whole have tended to cluster. Indeed, these views have clustered at one end of the spectrum in the early twentieth century and then clustered at the opposite end of the spectrum in the late twentieth century. Moreover, these radically different views of race in these two eras were held by intellectuals whose views on other issues were very similar in both eras.

>Intellectuals and Race is not, however, a book about history, even though it has much historical evidence, as well as demographic, geographic, economic and statistical evidence-- all of it directed toward testing the underlying assumptions about race that have prevailed at times among intellectuals in general, and especially intellectuals at the highest levels. Nor is this simply a theoretical exercise. The impact of intellectuals' ideas and crusades on the larger society, both past and present, is the ultimate concern. These ideas and crusades have ranged widely from racial theories of intelligence to eugenics to "social justice" and multiculturalism.

>In addition to in-depth examinations of these and other issues, Intellectuals and Race explores the incentives, the visions and the rationales that drive intellectuals at the highest levels to conclusions that have often turned out to be counterproductive and even disastrous, not only for particular racial or ethnic groups, but for societies as a whole.

I have a milder form of CP in my legs. Instantly visble in my walk and curved back. I can move on my own but curbs or stairs with no railing pretty much nerf me unless I have a hand or the walls are close enough together.

I was forced for 6 and a half years starting at age 12 to use a walker at school. It killed my self esteem and I thought no woman would ever want me as you don't grow out of Palsy. At about 17 I had had enough of trying to pretend like it didn't matter. The Ultimate Guide to Sexuality and Disability is written by 3 people, two with disabilities and all sex educators. It has some solid practical information on positions/technique/toys but to me the best part was the emotional healing it gave me even curing some biases I didn't realize I had. Its from 2003 so it doesn't really go into online dating but its tips for meeting people and self-esteem chapter is still very relevant. https://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Guide-Sex-Disability-Disabilities/dp/B00FFBGURQ

I've had 1 girlfriend for a few months in 2014. Early 2016 I realized I'm part kinkster. Not the 50 Shades crap, the real thing. I went from knowing nobody like me in real life to knowing a guy in a wheelchair, a woman with a service dog and walker, two women with chronic pain problems and one guy with a cognitive condition all in my small local scene. The book has a chapter on 'S/M' sex too and the creativity of it enthralled me. People with Palsy have to be creative to navigate the world that's not made for us. This is great for BDSM. Its not all pain and chains and we are not all warped to enjoy it.

I've been accepted by them bad legs and all and had an amazing Halloween experience where I learned the curved back I always resented feels amazing when candle wax is dripped on it.

If your not into that fine, but I though I'd share my story with you. If you have questions about it or the book I'll be happy to answer. I'll link my first two munches (public dinner) in my local community and my Halloween story where I finally felt good about my body. The Halloween one is long but I think you'll enjoy it. I also know two books on kink and disability if you want the info.

There is plenty of evidence to suggest that there are significant biological differences depending on one's race. If you can get a sample of someone's DNA, it is relatively easy to determine their race using principal component analysis. If you were to sample the DNA of numerous individuals, and then make a PCA chart, you'll see significant clustering consistent with biological races. Below is a chart from an extensive study of biological differences that arose from geographical separation. The further apart the colored dots appear, the more disparate the genetic differences are.


Chart

Link to official scientific study

As a bonus, here's another study done that analyzed the genetic data of 3,636 people. Similar results were found within the statistics. Link

Race is definitely not just a social construct. It exists within a person's genes and shows within their biology. If you give a skilled forensic anthropologist a skeleton, they are able to determine that person's race fairly easily. Even relatively loose racial associations, such as Hispanics can be determined with above average accuracy.

The biological differences extend further than just the skin or even just the skeletons and genetic makeup. Scientists have found significant differences within biological processes, such as the nervous system, between different races. In the chart I am about to show you, the races that there primarily studied were Africans, Europeans, East Asians. There was much variation that was found within their nervous systems.

If we used the taxonomic standards that we use for animals, Homo Sapiens would have multiple subspecies. Regardless of whether or not humans can reproduce across racial boundaries, there subspecies of animals, such as different subspecies of lions and bears that can do such a thing to.

Now a common myth that you may have heard is that people have more differences within their own race than outside their own race. This is a common mistake that is known as Lewontin's Fallacy, also known as Lewontin's Paradox. Basically, such a statement is only accurate when you examine the frequency of different alleles at an individual locus, which gives one a very inaccurate picture of true differences between any sort of genetic populations. When scientists analyze different races while accounting for and analyzing many loci, the results are entirely different.

Link to official scientific study

Another frequently perpetuated myth is that IQ and crime can be better associated with social class than race. This is another common myth, understandably so. However, several studies across the decades, even some of the more recent ones still suggest that even when one accounts for economic factors, social factors, educational factors, parenting factors, etc. there are still is a gap that persists. There is quite a bit of scientific data to back it up, I will post additional charts and the studies that back them up.

I'd say it's not an inherently leftist value at all, but the left definitely does a better job at mobilizing and implementing new urbanism ideas.
I've seen quite a bit of pushback against the neoconservative suburb-loving mainstream figures on the right, and lots of academics (such as writers at First Things, various authors at the Front Porch Republic and the signatories behind "Against the Dead Consensus") have worked to make the right more friendly to the conservative benefits that come from well planned cities.

Robert Nesbit is a great resource for this. He began as a leftist but eventually came to intellectual conservatism, specializing in human sociology. This is key.
His book "Quest for Community " argues that the rise of the powerful modern state has eroded the sources of community—the family, the neighborhood, the church, the guild. Alienation and loneliness inevitably resulted. One of his solutions to this alienation is for things simply be done on a human scale. Neighborhoods, streets, towns, all need to consider first and foremost the necessity of human connection and localism, and the goods that come from them. This could mean having wider sidewalks, taking the car out of the city, etc.
Same goes for Leon Krier. Began as a modernist with liberal tendencies and saw that a traditional urban setting was far more conducive to human flourishing than modernism or suburbia.
The list goes on and on. One of the key trends I've noticed amongst pro-New Urbanism individuals on the right is the split between conservatism and traditionalism. You are much more likely to find the oil money, suburb loving, trickle down/anti-urbanism economics amongst neoconservatives and other mainstream republicans.

They are acceptable, but the marriages themselves are arranged. About the extramarital sex thing, in the book I read about them it was definitely not acceptable (and only practiced in secret) after marriage, but common and freely practiced before marriage.

Anyway, the !Kung are really interesting because they led this lifestyle up until the 70s and were researched by several anthropologists who lived with them for years.

If you're interested this book offers an amazing insight into the lives and society of a hunter gatherer people.

I didn't realize I had to do your homework for you. This was the top result of a google search for "shaker heights sociology study schools". When I saw this study last it was in article format but I am not surprised the author wrote a book about it.

Anyways, you are remembering the study incorrectly. It was a study of middle class black families in comparison to middle class whites within the same community. He found that the white parents were significantly more likely to preach the value of education and homework and hold their children responsible when they performed poorly academically, whereas the reverse was true with the black parents. They did little to reinforce the importance of school or homework and blamed the teachers/schools when their children did poorly. So yes, actually, it addresses this point directly.

Look, I do not care to "convert" you. I couldn't care less if you believe what I am saying. The link to the book is of zero help to you as you are not going to order it and read it and you have demonstrated an unwillingness to search for any evidence that is contrary to your claim (unless it is spoon fed to you), so what do you want? Shall I xerox the relevant pages of the article (assuming I ever find my copy) and mail them to you? Why is that my responsibility? I have told you that there is evidence to support my claim, I gave you a really good jumping off point, and you do not want to do any work. Fine. Again, I don't care. But do not make the mistake of assuming that your laziness or my apathy is reason enough to continue believing you are right about this.

Here's a slightly different article on gender, too.

>do you have any book recommendations

To be honest, I'm not much of a book person. I have far more online resources than print ones, though I'm still pretty bad at remembering to bookmark things after I read them.

Tim Wise generally does a good job describing racial privilege, and he's got a couple speeches available on youtube (for example) and a book out (which I admittedly haven't read, but I'd expect it to be fairly okay based on his speeches that I've seen), but he doesn't specifically tackle intersectionality as far as I know.

This question would probably make a very good selfpost, since it's unlikely that many people will follow this conversation the whole way, and other subscribers will likely have better book lists handy.

ETA: I imagine you couldn't go wrong with something like this, too.

There have been many studies done on the schools in Shaker Heights, Ohio, an affluent (generally middle class to very wealthy), racially integrated suburb of Cleveland. Even in one of the best funded districts in the state, black students perform worse than white students.

http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/csd/summary/v044/44.6jackson.html

Black American Students in an Affluent Suburb presents an interesting departure from traditional studies of the Black and White achievement gap. A trio of elements made this study uniquely different. First, the school district is considered to be one of the best in the nation. Second, Shaker Heights is an upper middle-class suburb with a median family income of $66,000. Third, Shaker Heights is a highly educated community with an estimated 61% of the residents over 25 years old holding at least a bachelor's degree. The presence of these three elements, which are traditionally used to explain the achievement gap, adds a perplexing dynamic to the research contained in this book.

The gap in academic achievement between Black and White students in Shaker Heights led to the fundamental question that guided this research: Why do Black students, who seemingly have the appropriate conditions of life that should lead to academic success, still perform far below their White counterparts? Interestingly, the academic performance of Blacks in Shaker Heights was above the state and national average for Black students.

A few more cites:

http://www.amazon.com/Black-American-Students-Affluent-Suburb/dp/080584516X (considered the most authoritative study)
http://wesscholar.wesleyan.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1565&context=etd_hon_theses (pdf)
http://generaltoolbox.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/the_canary_in_the_mine.pdf (pdf)
http://annenberginstitute.org/pdf/cj_acheivement_gap.pdf(pdf)


For several years, I lived in South Euclid, a lower middle- to upper middle-class, stably racially integrated suburb not too far from Shaker Heights. There was the same gap between black students and white students, with special programs at the high school targeted specifically towards black students to ensure they graduate.

http://www.clevescene.com/cleveland/class-action/Content?oid=1502634

TL/DR: the district didn't succumb to the soft bigotry of low expectations.

Meanwhile, district officials, led by Superintendent Bill Zelei, refused to let daunting national trends discourage them. Half of black male students drop out anyway. Why bother trying? They didn't ship the new arrivals to special ed or let them coast in dumbed-down classes. They didn't pull money out of the high school and into majority-white elementary schools. They kept the honors courses, the Japanese language instruction, the art classes, and the drama club.


u/discontinuity · 2 pointsr/Cleveland

Bullet three is exactly backward. Shaker Heights high school used to be ranked in the 90th percentile, but as the mix changed to the one you quote, the Percentage of Students Passing All Four Parts of the Ohio Graduation Test dropped to 67.4%, the high school stopped being one of the most desirable, and white flight has and is occurring.

I agree with you that Clevelanders do NOT fear integrated education, but people value education and will chase these rankings. So if an influx of black students changes a highschool's pass rate, you will see white flight based on the change in status of the highschool. It's also worth noting that the high desirability of these schools is a draw which creates demand for real-estate and as the rankings decline, people will abandon the community as it is a precursor to declining home values, which is where most of the middle-class has the majority of their wealth, exasperating the "white flight" scenario.

There was a Black American Students in An Affluent Suburb: A Study of Academic Disengagement written about the phenomenon.

The author John U. Ogbu was ostricized by the black community because of it.

>Ashley Jardina is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Duke University. Her research explores the nature of racial attitudes, the development of group identities, and the way in which these factors influence political preferences and behavior. She is primarily interested in how Americans are responding to increasing diversity, and her current project explores the conditions under which white racial identification and white consciousness among white Americans is a salient and significant predictor of policies, candidates, and attitudes toward racial and ethnic groups. She is also interested in the study of gender and politics. Her dissertation won the 2015 American Political Science Association award for the best dissertation in race and ethnic politics.

>Ashley recently published a new book, White Identity Politics, that “offers a landmark analysis of emerging patterns of white identity and collective political behavior, drawing on sweeping data.” In this episode Ashley speaks with Chris about her book, and how she found contrasting attitudes between white people in America who identify with their race and white people who don’t. She also explains how previous generations of political scientists have been mistaken in conflating the issue of racial prejudice and the issue of identity when explaining the politics of white Americans.

Lol I don't have to engage every internet stranger asshole who condescends to me. I'd never get work done. The fact you're quoting the UN at me is concerning though. I know they position themselves as a neutral global mediator, but in practice they function to advance the interests of powerful capitalist countries and their policies. Fuck the United Nations. You have to be a lot more critical of the info coming out of Rojava. It's a warzone, they are communists, and almost every global power has an interest in spinning any news on the conflict. Here's an article that shows an example of the disinfo I'm talking about.

In addition, your understanding of the political power structure is highly reductive. This book is a good place to start (used to be a free version to pirate but I can't find it now). The governing system there is complex and the dynamics are fluid. It's also complicated by an ongoing wartime situation. Democratic Confederalism is a theoretical system being implemented for the first time, and they acknowledge the struggle of transitioning from traditional culture to a progressive one under these conditions. That doesn't mean I'm/they're wrong, it certainly doesn't mean you're right.

Anyway cut that "drink the kool aid / i'm here to teach you something" attitude. There's clearly so much on this situation you don't know, and you're so up your own ass that you thought UN and Wikipedia made you look smart. And then telling me I'm whacking off to party rhetoric when you're endorsing info from the mouthpiece of our global ruling class. Thoughtless.

Thank you for linking this. The parent comment to yours was at the top of this thread when I started reading the comments, so your link to the transcript of the NPR interview with Daryl Davis was the first information about him that I had ever consumed. What a story! My jaw dropped a couple times, I said "Wow," out loud at least three times, and I almost cried at one point.

This man's story deserves to be heard around the world. It makes me want to be a better person, and attempt to be even a little bit as brave and respectful of other human beings whose viewpoints clash with mine, as this man is. I'm definitely going to check out his book, "Klan-Destine Relationships," and the Netflix documentary that was linked in the parent comment.

There should be an LGBT center in your nearby city. Maybe they've got information on a shelter you can use when you need to leave. Most of them have group sessions, and I'd strongly recommend you attend the lesbian one. It can be pretty eye opening to hear and see other women who have gone through this and survived: what went right, what went not-right and what they'd do differently if they had it to do all over again.

I took the Duolingo Russian course for shits and giggles and cleared it in a couple of days via those 'take a shortcut' options. It's an OK introduction to the language but unfortunately won't get you very far. The problem with apps like these is that they only give you a narrow peak into the language and test what you've learned in a very discrete and limited way. That, and the quality of their limited material kind of sucks sometimes.

I'd start with a basic textbook, this is the one I used in college. You can probably find a used one for a reasonable price. Though I used it in conjunction with a class professor, It's formatted incredibly well and comes with a CD, so self-use shouldn't be too difficult. If you're looking to spend zero money, I stumbled upon this youtube channel with some decent instruction. If you want to stay mobile, I'd recommend the app Memsize over duolingo due to the shear volume of content they have available in comparison.

You can also, of course, ask for help in this sub. There user base here is incredibly kind and helpful. Feel free to ask me anything of you want as well.

SPOILERS: When you complete the Duolingo course all the app gives you is a crappy bird medal on the bottom of your lessons list.

There are two questions in play here. First, what is the worth of culture? Second, should the state institute policies which assist cultural minorities with preserving their cultural particularity? This second issue is the issue of multiculturalism. Defenses of multiculturalism will always point to the value of culture. So, learning more about the second issue will help you address the first as well. If you are serious about learning more about multiculturalism, I highly recommend that you start with Will Kymlicka's [Multicultural Citizenship] (http://www.amazon.com/Multicultural-Citizenship-Liberal-Minority-Political/dp/0198290918/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1333746069&sr=8-1). This book will give you an idea of why it may be important to institute policies which help to preserve culture, but it will also clearly identify the limits of multiculturalism.

Edit: I'd also recommend Okin's ["Is Multiculturalism Bad for Women?"] (http://www.bostonreview.net/BR22.5/okin.html). [Here] (http://www.bostonreview.net/BR22.5/kymlicka.html) is Kymlicka's response to Okin.

Per Nisbet and Deneen, it does logically follow that a hyper-liberal view of immigration (it is immoral to bar people from moving across states, open-borders), would require an expansion of the state to uphold order and replace the stability and social trust original communities had a priori the effective dissolution of them via widespread immigration.

I know the ideas you are speaking of. That said, I thought book was complete garbage. I cannot overstate how bad I thought the book was.

I do not want people to assimilate to the "dominant culture." I want people to assimilate to norms that promote human flourishing. Cultures differ in ways other than the superficial: food, music, and dress. Communities can differ in their beliefs about honor, purity, violence, sexual freedom, masculinity, etc.. I consider it a duty to critique ideas and values that hinder human well-being.

Also, I hold the parochial tribalism of "their culture" and "our culture" thinking to be unimaginative at best and immoral at worst. The world is getting smaller everyday. I can communicate with people all over the globe. Is anyone suggesting that I shouldn't engage in a dialogue with my fellow human being where we try to persuade each other of the merits of our ideas?

P.S.
If you say that I shouldn't critique another culture's values, then you are not in my culture. My culture is one of robust scrutiny of all ideas. And because you are not in my culture, by the logic of non-intercultural criticism, you cannot critique me.

Thomas Sowell is a black economist and author who writes on these (and other) topics very clearly and convincingly. In short: it's not about race at all - various ethnicities have been subjugated and marginalized throughout history around the world. Many have overcome adversity and become wildly successful...but it's always due to cultural values of work ethic, focus on education, and trying to create better opportunities for children, in spite of whatever social barriers may exist. Whenever political methods of "equalization" are tried they never work, because they don't come from within that group and don't address what's necessary for a given group to become successful.

A Critical Introduction to Queer Theory by Nikki Sullivan is pretty decent

I think How to Do Things With Words by JL Austin is a fun read. It's really a lingusitics book, but very relevant, because it quite clearly outlines the topic of performativity, which is crucial to understanding queer theory.

Margaret Mead Made Me Gay by Esther Newton is another good sort of intro. Its kind of a memoir of how her critical theory developed and as you read along you see what ideas are woven in, how they intersected with politics and history and social change at the time.

Is this the kind of stuff you meant? I have more up my sleeve if you want it.

u/Cyclops75 · 1 pointr/CerebralPalsy

You're welcome! It's not my YouTube but both speakers deal with these topics very well and both are real things that will factor in to his life. If you have any other questions I'm here.

Oh, it's very far off of course- but theirs not much on sex and disability. This book really helped once I got a copy at 17. Even as a nondisabled person this book may help you to know just because he has a disability; he doesn't have to be single forever.

Don't bother going with Rosetta Stone. It will be pretty much 95% useless to you, as you already understand everything. Rosetta Stone puts next to no emphasis on grammar.

You may find this book useful. It was used in a first year Russian course I took back in university and has plenty of exercises to get you learning grammar, the alphabet and even how to read/write cyrillic cursive. There were many students in that class in pretty much exactly the same situation as you who seemed to find it helpful.

Seriously you ask for my opinion and that's the reply I get? And I thought we were friends. I also find you attitudes on the achievement gap to be quaint. Here is a study by a black sociologist on the reasons black students perform poorly in a rich middle class school district. His conclussion...It isn't the teachers.

http://www.eastbayexpress.com/ebx/rich-black-flunking/Content?oid=1070459

Here is another perspective from a white teacher who chose to teach in a primarily black school district. I am sure the blame for the achievement gap rest on his shoulders as well.

Thomas Sowell's book where he talks about this study and much, much more: https://www.amazon.com/Intellectuals-Race-Thomas-Sowell/dp/0465058728

Sowell also talks a lot about the subject in his autobiography-- and he has a really good perspective on this as a black man who grew up in Harlem, became a Marxist, studied economics, and then later became fiscally conservative after working at the labor department and realizing that they actually didn't want him to prove the truth about the minimum wage due to the political implications: https://www.amazon.com/Personal-Odyssey-Thomas-Sowell/dp/0684864657

You really do.

>In his book, No Longer Separate, Not Yet Equal; Race and Class in Elite College Admission and Campus Life, Espenshade notes that the biggest testing advantage belongs to African-American students. Black students who were accepted into these elite schools could have SAT scores on a 1600 scale that were 310 points lower than a white, middle-class applicant. Hispanic applicants enjoyed a 130 point advantage.
>
>Low-income students, regardless of race, also enjoyed a 130-point advantage and working-class applicants got a 70-point advantage. Upper-middle class students enjoyed a 50-point advantage.
>
>The applicants who were hurt the most by the affirmative-action admission policies were Asian students, who had to earn 140 points more than the typical middle-class, white applicant to gain admission.

No one even denies this nonsense; The Atlantic even argues that affirmative action hasn't gone far enough and only concedes that it's sometimes discriminatory in terms of the negative effect on Asian students.

u/old_skool · 2 pointsr/architecture

Well you're certainly entitled to your opinion, but the narration starts with a handful of assumptions that they later find to be untrue. "Correlation doesn't necessarily mean causation" kind of stuff. While I'm not in love with the architecture, I think the study makes perfect sense. Some of the conclusions made in the related book had some influence in the NYC Dept. of City Planning.

u/DamnZodiak · 1 pointr/funny

I hope you don't mind me simply copy pasting my previous answer.

It's a cultural theory which, for many people (myself not included) , is closely tied to the concepts of post-scructuralism. I guess the Wikipedia article would be a good start? I personally got into the topic through Nikki Sullivan's book.

u/SD_TMI · 1 pointr/sandiego

You're just spamming the sub now with this.
Repeating the same things and not advancing your position.

Nor are you responding to my questions so that we can have a rational discussion by establishing what is "racism and privilege" exactly and how it pertains to the city.

Because right now it's all this fuzzy notion that makes excuses far too easy. Talking to you really does remind me of a good will hunting secene. I even brought up Howard Zin for cryin out loud.

Anyway, Perhaps something like John Ogbu's study "Black American Students in an Affluent Suburb: A Study of Academic Disengagement" would be of benefit here.

Otherwise this is isn't going anywhere and it's clear that no amount of reasoning is going to change whatever some militant BLM mantra crept into your mind.

u/ldav232 · 1 pointr/conspiracy

Hanging around /r/conspiracy does not imply that I should take theories at face value. I think that there are power structures designed to keep people in power, but I disagree that they're based on race, race division is nothing but another diversion tactic from those that are truly in power, to divide and conquer.

You've pointed me towards no proof or any reasonable indicator that black people are truly oppressed. Black people that have decided to transcend the culture that would bring them down have been successful, those that decide to blame others for their problems probably have not. It's really that simple. You can't argue inequality and oppression when black people have the same rights and can even rise to be president or attorney general, this is something that you have not addressed.

I recommend this book:

https://www.amazon.com/Intellectuals-Race-Thomas-Sowell/product-reviews/0465058728/ref=cm_cr_dp_text?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=helpful#R3PI46WC1VDA6T

Sowell explains why cultural differences and not genetic or racial discrimination determine how certain minorities excel and others not so much.

I also recommend taking a look at the crime statistics coming from the USA census bureau and the FBI. They show that black people commit a disproportionate amount of crimes in proportion to their % of the overall population, this is something that many people don't get into their heads, the concept of representation.

You’ll find that this subreddit is a roughly even mix of (1) half-baked 1st year undergraduates who had a really interesting thought while on shrooms and want to share it with everyone, and (2) bitter PhD students who have 0 patience for the uninitiated.

As for citizenship theory, if you want to read more, I suggest this book (also by Kymlicka). If you happen to be Canadian, you might also be interested in this report (large PDF) on the accommodation of minorities in Quebec, which was coauthored by philosopher Charles Taylor.

u/hga_another · 55 pointsr/KotakuInAction

Wow, but this guy is ignorant, which I guess has become mandatory for the mainstream libertarianism that Reason represents.

> I'd imagine that some of the most conservative students come from socioeconomically disadvantaged, rural backgrounds. And point three is also true, though some conservatives evidently feel that their professors will retaliate against them if they speak up (though they could be wrong about this—feelings are not facts).

By and large, if reports about what this book says about competitive admissions are true, at places like Cornell they've found ways to all but eliminate admitting strong non-legacy conservative students. And those "feelings" he denigrates are very much "factual" given that there have been for years, decades really, too many well publicized horror stories about conservative students speaking out in class and getting anything from failing grades to actions trying to and as I recall at least a few times getting them expelled. Plus starting in the Obama era it's become trivial for a female peer to arrange expulsion in far too many colleges.

He also claims to be ignorant in words I've not quoted of all the fields that in the US have become almost or entirely closed to conservatives, like science and math; today I wouldn't even try to become a scientist, and the signs were clear when I started that process in higher education back in 1979.

I don't believe it would bother me. You know what you can do, how to move yourself around etc. As long as you're savvy enough to get creative with body positioning, things would be great.

I have non-visible disabilities, including two muscular skeletal conditions and chronic pain. My back is different and certain things are not possible for me. I'm still learning to accept this, so I picked up this book at my local sex shop. It's called "The Ultimate Guide to Sex and Disability". https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00FFBGURQ/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1495272055&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=the+ultimate+guide+to+sex+and+disability&dpPl=1&dpID=41quZKrWieL&ref=plSrch
It's candid, thoughtful, and is written by people who are and/or work with people with disabilities. There is indeed a section about wheelchairs and some tips on positioning and ergonomics. Perhaps you know these tips already, but I thought I would throw it out there!

Evidence shows the differences in academic aptitudes among races are so small as to be negligible. The same is true about gender where females tend to be very slightly better at some tasks on average ... but who cares. It's negligible on average and says nothing about any individual.

The problems with inner city schools that you mention are primarily socio-economic and also cultural (see Shaker Heights: https://www.amazon.com/Black-American-Students-Affluent-Suburb/dp/080584516X ), not genetic.

I think you are arguing that teachers should be evaluated based on growth rather than proficiency.

>those shipments aren't anything new

if you can find me an example of the US shipping Armored vehicles and Howitzers to the SDF prior to 2017, I'll concede the point.

>Al Qaeda

Al Qaeda has always been an insurgency. ISIS is an unrecognized state. they'll go underground, like the Taliban has gone underground, but we will have total victory over them in the field very shortly, in Iraq and Syria. If you want to move the goalposts from the defeat of ISIS to eliminating absolutely all resistence from Islamic Extremism, then I wont argue with you. Victory in that context will only come from empowering broad coalitions of different ethnicities and creeds, and embracing alternative political and power structures, like the work being undertaken in Rojava, and other parts of Syria and Turkey. for reading, check out Revolution in Rojava

Jag tycker det är okej att betala så mycket till fattiga länder så att vår välfärd försvinner, men jag tycker inte det är okej att betala ineffektivt. Dvs att hjälpa de som kommit till västvärlden, istället för att hjälpa i närområdet.

Etnisk heterogenitet inom ett område sänker det sociala kapitalet.

Inte ens genom att i teorin kombinera alla kända insatser lyckas man i genomsnitt åtstadkomma den etniska homogenitetens höga sociala sammanhållning (Neal & Neal 2013)

Andra effekter av ökad etnisk heterogenitet inom ett område är att de försämrar ekonomi, demokrati (Vanhanen, 1999), altruism (Salter, 2004), villighet att investera i det allmänna (Alesina, Glaeser & Sacerdote, 2001; Salter, 1999; Schubert & Tweed, 1999) och ökar korruption (Easterly & Levine, 1997).

Desstuom ökar risken dramatiskt för för etniska konflikter (Vanhanen, 2012) samt (Van Der Bergh, 1987)

Dessa problem, bl a brist på trygghet och tillit skapar en störande skolmiljö som försämrar de nya generationernas möjligheter att utbilda sig till de exceptionella nivåer som ett toppland bland kunskapsländer kräver.

Kom ihåg att de vetenskapliga och teknologiska framsteg som världens främsta åtstadkommer kommer så småninom hela världen till nytta. Så när man sackar den globala spjutspetsmotorn så får Eritrea färre nya hjälpmedel att resa sig ur fattigdom med.

Here's a book that more or less sums it up:
https://www.amazon.com/Black-American-Students-Affluent-Suburb/dp/080584516X

I agree with you on two points:

  1. The condition blacks are in today is due in large part to being enslaved for ~100 years, then being subject to institutional racism for another ~100 years.
  2. There are still people who hold positions of power that who knowingly or unknowingly hold black people back.


    After that our agreement ends. The position and opportunity of black people in society today is better than it has ever been. If they had the culture of Asians or Jews they could easily outpace white people in every metric. Further, whining and blaming everything on "white racism" will hold black people in the ghetto forever. Your viewpoints are actively oppressing African Americans.

No problem, man.

If you don’t know about what’s going on in Rojava, I understand how you wouldn’t see the significance of the fight in Rojava.

It’s not just about some individuals fighting for their lives. It’s about a progressive model for how to organize society along anarchist thinking, living equally and ecologically. And out of all the places in the world, this begins in war-torn Syria!

I recommend you do your own research. But here’s a Rolling Stone article about the the western anarchists who joined the fight , which explains a bit of the context. I recall it was an easy read.

If you’re looking for a more academic account and
a more thorough analysis from a societal perspective, I can recommend Revolution in Rojava: Democratic Autonomy and Women's Liberation in Syrian Kurdistan.

Edit: Wanted to add that these people are fighting an important fight, probably the most important fight in the world right now.

On average, black Americans are poorer than white Americans. This was initially due to pre-Civil Rights Movement blatant racism and discrimination. After the Civil Rights Movement, blatant racism started to fade away, but our educational system has kept blacks from escaping from their poverty. Schools are funded by local taxes, so when the people are poorer, the schools aren't as good. The abundance of land and quality of roads has allowed the wealthy to geographically isolate themselves from the poor (usually black, but also white and Hispanic).

However, African American culture may also play a detrimental role, as addressed in this book by anthropologist John Ogbu.

Alles, absolut alles, auch gute Bildung, wird mit Blut und Schweiß erkämpft und über Jahrzehnte aufgebaut. Schau mal wie schnell wir alles zerstört haben.

>I'm saying Thai particular time racial prejudice in NYC was a major factor.

And I'm saying you need to have more of a reason than, "Because black murders weren't on the front page of the news paper there's racial injustice."

Would you please quit the personal attacks? The only thing you have to defend yourself are personal attacks at this point. I'm telling you that saying, "Because something happened to a white person and not a black person. Or because something happened to a black person and not a white person, that's racism." Isn't enough of a reason to call someone a racist. It's ridiculous. But it's really the only way liberals can keep up the facade of a racist culture and create an image of being a protector of minorities.

Let me give you some free advice.

Know who has it harder than white males when it comes to fighting quotas and taking a hit on admissions or employment because of their race? It’s Asian males. They get all the shit of being a minority, but none of the benefits.

The government considers them a minority (which they are), but not an under-represented minority, so they don’t get into the quotas. Asian females don’t get the race quota either, but they get the gender quota, so they are better off.

Lots of people have done studies and found this to be the case. For example, these folks did a study and published a book about it. Here’s a chart from their book. Compared to white males as the baseline, blacks get an equivalent of 130 free SAT points when it comes to admission to elite schools. That is, a white student would need 130 more SAT points than the black student to have the same chance of admission. But guess where Asians place? They suffer a penalty of 140 points relative to whites, and 270 points relative to blacks. To have the same chance for admission as a white student, an Asian needs to have a SAT score 140 points higher than whites. Talk about race-based discrimination, these guys get the short end of the stick.

This is why when someone says “OMG! Everyone is sexist and racist to white males!” but forgets to mention Asian males, it comes across as racist/sexist whining. If you were really concerned about fairness, why the fuck would you omit the class that has it even worse than you? They never even had “white privilege” in the country, so what past sins of their forefathers are they paying for?

I don’t mean to offend, I am offering some genuine, well-intentioned advice. When you say something like “poor persecuted white males, we’re the new lowest rung on the discrimination ladder”, people realize that this isn’t true, so you’re not seen as championing fairness or equality, you’re seen as fighting for the white male privilege you once enjoyed and lost. You come across as a racist and sexist.

I don’t ask you to take the “white” out of the picture. By all means say “white”, but if you were to modify your statement to “Asian and white males face the heaviest discrimination from society these days”, not only would you be more truthful, people would also have a harder time calling you racist. Because hey, you’re not just fighting for your own sex and race, you’re fighting against the system of treating people unfairly.

I highly recommend this even if you are a racist/sexist fuckwad who hates everyone else. It’s just good politics. It makes your case stronger.

For anyone interested in my notes on this interview with Harvard, Columbia, and University of Chicago educated Thomas Sowell, on his book Intellectuals and Race (no affiliate link), please see below. I was watching it on Youtube at 1.5.x, and it's just so packed full of common sense, backed by research, that I had to take notes to do it justice. Keep in mind these are my notes, and not all are just straight quotes. So there's some intelligence guided by experience.

Substandard English (e.g. black-speak) is holding black people back. Aspects of the language (e.g. "axe" for "ask" ) traces back to both the south and Britain before that - not Africa.

In societies where widespread multiculturalism and diversity exists, you find societies that are barely able to constrain widespread violence. (e.g. India barley coheres as a nation; the number of killed between Hinduism and Muslims ran into the hundreds of thousands when Britain made India free).

Diversity in college acceptance policies doesn't produce integration. Before affirmative action, particularly in the form of diversity quotas in College acceptance policies, and you find increased division. Institutions in eras prior to diversity mandates generally had better integration and less racial division. The data for diversity programs doesn't support the existence of diversity programs - it refutes it.

The black subculture in America today is is holding blacks back. Intellectuals today should be fixing the problem, instead of extending, or exploiting it.

Progressives were the racists. Under Woodrow Wilson, certain aspects of segregation began enforcement. Liberals by insisting on their views repeatedly, without data supporting their views, setup an intellectual culture that made things worse - not better. Multiculturalism - bringing students into institutions that they're ill-qualified for, sets the students back. The " intelligentsia" pays no price for its views because there's not test, nor evidence for the basis of their ideas.

"Intellectuals" have deep intelligence in very limited areas and it's dangerous. E.g. they're a mile-deep, but an inch wide. Most have not studied affirmative action, multiculturalism, etc. But the ideas, amidst the intellectual crowd have expanded - like a plague.

"No individual or Group can be blamed for being born into circumstances that lack... advantages. But neither can 'society' be automatically assumed to be either the cause or the cure for such disparities." - Despite centuries of slavery, Jim Crow laws, bad policy in urban environments, etc. For the child born into challenging circumstances (e.g. Detroit vs. Greenwich, CT) - no one (e.g. not society, not whites, not me) is to blame (expect perhaps that child's parents). The average black kid today is, materially, better off than the average black kid growing up in the 50s. The difference today, is that the schools are worse, and that's bad policy (primarily, bad liberal policy - since liberals run many/most urban schools). Circumstances are not the fault of slavery, or anything else that happened 100 - 200 years ago.

James Flynn; after the Second World War, black and white American Soldiers had children. And those children, growing up in Germany, showed no IQ differences at all. The black and white kids had the same IQ. The reason that blacks and whites had the same IQ in Germany, unlike int he US, according to Flynn, is that the children growing up in Germany grew up with no black subculture. (e.g. there was no gangster rap in Germany).

... Also, just because I think it's appropriate... "Ignorance is preferable to error, and he is less remote from the truth who believes nothing than he who believes what is wrong. - Thomas Jefferson
