Seed of Japheth recently wrote about “genetic theft”:
… Genetic theft is when a race acquires some genetic material of another race, the amount of genetic material gained is a small enough amount so that the genetic material of the other race can be assimilated into the gene pool without the racial integrity of the race doing the assimilating being threatened.
Genetic material refers to sperm of the male and ovum of the female.
A question arises, should white people engage in genetic theft of their own and at what point is it a good idea to accept someone into the fold of the white race?
Though it might be argued that lower-quality whites (“white trash”) would benefit from an infusion of Asian blood, these are not the sort of whites we find doing so. As Richard J. Herrnstein and Charles Murray explain in “The Bell Curve“, like attracts like. Thus, it is not the chain-smoking, beer guzzling, foul-mouthed trashy whites who end up marrying Asians (unless it’s trashy Asians). Rather, it is those who stand to gain the least from such liaisons: The successful, intellectual elites. I don’t think it’s a good idea to encourage miscegenation among whites, at least not on any large scale. Does anybody encourage the Spotted Owl to mix with the Barred Owl? As for who should be considered “white”, I have already written about this.
But I found myself thinking along the lines of Seed of Japheth recently. I was at a social event and was chatting with a certain fellow. The man’s appearance was exceptional, with thick eyebrows and sharp features. If I were a woman, I’d say he was handsome. As for his young daughter, it was obvious that she’s going to blossom into an stunningly beautiful woman. Our conversation drifted to DNA testing and he mentioned that his test showed some Yemeni heritage. He was under the impression that there might be some Jewish blood in his family. I told him it is more likely that one of the Yemeni soldiers (Yemen always participated mightily in the Arab wars of conquest) had left his DNA in France before the Arabs/Moors were turned back by Charles Martel. In any event, this conversation reminded me of a pet theory I’d had since childhood – that some of the more exotic features, found in trace amounts among the darker-haired peoples of Europe (and, perhaps, their dark hair itself), have their roots in the Middle East. These features often make for very good-looking people.
There was a guy at my high school (not the ghetto high school, but the mostly white one) who was known as “the Jew”. He wasn’t Jewish, but he looked like he could be. Nobody would call him that around me, because they knew I was a real Jew and they feared offending me. In any event, since that time, I’d always assumed that the darker features of some Europeans had come from the Middle East during the Neolithic migrations that accompanied the spread of agriculture. I will not begrudge the Nordics their beauty, but there is also beauty of the dark-haired/dark-eyed variety. The contrast between light skin and dark hair/eyes has its own appeal. If this combination dates from Neolithic migrations from the Middle East, then this could be described as “genetic theft” and whites could be said to have benefited from it – at least aesthetically.
On a related note, check out this interesting article on the mutation that causes ultra-light skin among Europeans (SLC24A5). It’s possible/likely that Southern Europeans, lacking this mutation, simply retained the pigmentation of the original Europeans. But we now know that there is a certain percentage of Middle Eastern genes in Europeans, and that this percentage increases as we move South-East from the Baltic toward the Balkans and Turkey. So, while dark hair and dark eyes may well be indigenous to Europe, the vaguely Middle Eastern features we sometimes find among native Europeans might have arrived later.
