My own path to racial awareness, though somewhat smooth, had its challenges. For one, the vast majority of race realists are white and most of the intellectual infrastructure of the race realist movement is built upon the assumption that its adherents are white. Though marginally “white” myself, my children (their mother being an Indian Jew) are certainly not white. Of course I see no contradiction in being a race realist/white nationalist and, at the same time being very close to non-whites in my personal life – even, some might say, as close as my own swarthy skin (more so in my younger years). This is because I hold no animosity toward non-whites. I have never been victimized by violent racist Indians and most of my experiences with Indians have been positive (even with tech support). Maybe a sojourn in India would give me a different perspective.
As for my experiences with blacks, I am mature enough to refrain from harboring ill feelings toward individual blacks until they give me reason to do so. I see plenty of reason to be cautious of them as a group but no reason to poison my heart with hatred and violent thoughts. This would hurt me more than them.
As it stands, blacks hold a special place vis-a’-vis race realists due to their high levels of crime against whites and Asians and their overall high time-preference. So I sometimes wonder, in a parallel universe where I’d married a black woman instead of an Indian Jewish one, would I still have been capable of reaching the racial insights I now have? In general, is it possible for the human psyche to allow one to hold race realist convictions on the one hand and still love his black children on the other? If so, would such a person be an outcast amongst other race realists and, especially, amongst white nationalists? Would attitudes toward such a person be different if she were a woman as opposed to a man?
A couple of Amren conferences ago, Fred Reed was invited to talk about Mexico, where he resides. During the question and answer session, one attendee verbally attacked Reed for being married to a Mexican woman who is not even clearly non-white. Many of us booed the “questioner” for his rudeness. Here is Reed’s account:
If the latter means people who want to exterminate this or that group, I encountered none. The closest anyone came was an overwrought dingaling who, in question and answer, denounced me as a race traitor for having married Violeta, my Mexican wife. I considered an appropriate but anatomically unorthodox repositioning of my microphone. However, the audience told him to sit down and shut up. Later a dozen people apologized for his behavior, and I met a fair number of men who had Chinese, Mexican, and Colombian wives. Race traitors all, I suppose.
Reed’s “Mexican” wife might actually be of Mediterranean ancestry or perhaps she’s a bit of a Mestizo. Either way, it is doubtful if Reed would have even attended the conference had his wife been black. If he had, there might have been more than just one “dingaling” to raise objections.
People make mistakes in their younger years. Some have been known to make mistakes in their later years too. Given the chance to live my life over again, I certainly would not have married that Indian Jewess; we have been happily divorced for many years now. But marry her I did and I do love my children. It would not be fair for me to expect another person, who had committed indiscretions with a black, to disown his children. Each of us has done what we’ve done in the past and now we must make the most of it.
I have a good relationship with my children and I teach them what I know about race though I get mixed results. To any enlightened readers out there who have begotten children through miscegenation, I urge you to teach your non-white children the truth about race. There is nothing hateful about the truth and teaching them the virtues of white civilization will not hurt their self-esteem. This would apply to any non-white readers as well. In a perfect world, non-whites would teach their children to refrain from dating whites so that whites would date exclusively amongst themselves. Alas, these days it probably would make no difference to the white race; the white in question would probably just move on to another non-white to date. However there is still the principle of the matter: teach your children to refrain from miscegenation!
