Racial differences in eye problems

There is no equality in nature. When I was a kid, leftist hippies used to stress the point that humans are “part of nature.” These days, the Establishment Left embraces an implicit human exceptionalism; a belief that the normal rules of nature do not, or should not, apply to humans.

But the reality is that “Some People Must be Margarinalized for the Butterment of Humanity.” There. I said it. Just give me credit if you use that play on words (yeah, it’s bad, I know).

HBD (human biodiversity) can strike at any moment. You can be casually going about your business, and then all of a sudden HBD will pop up out of nowhere, like Kilroy, and remind you that we’re not “all the same.”

That’s what happened to me just yesterday. I was having my annual eye exam, and I asked my optometrist if I could drop off my old eye-glasses at his office, so that they could be donated to poor people who might need them. He replied that my prescription would be very useful to people in Latin America. He says that my type of astigmatism is common among those ethnic groups.

So I asked him if vision problems vary according to race. He told me that they certainly do. My eyes are typical of people of Mediterranean origins. When I asked him to direct me to specific literature, he told me that it’s common knowledge (in his field), and that I could easily find material on the internet. Here’s an example:

Ethnicity appears to be associated with vision problems — such as near- and farsightedness — in children, new research suggests.

Researchers found that Asian-American children were more likely to be myopic, or nearsighted, than their Hispanic, African-American and white peers, while white children were more likely to have hyperopia, or farsightedness, than were children from the other ethnic groups. Astigmatism — an irregular curvature of the cornea that causes blurry vision — was most prevalent among Hispanic children.

“We don’t really know why these differences exist,” said Karla Zadnik, the lead author of the multi-center study and an associate professor of optometry at Ohio State University. “It’s probably like most of our modern conditions and diseases a mix a nature and nurture and factors that interact together.

My optometrist was under the impression that the differences are genetic – probably due to the fact that they persist across generations; the grandchildren of immigrants don’t share the same culture as their ancestors.

So… visit the dentist, and you’ll find HBD. Visit the eye doctor, and you’ll find HBD. Attend the Olympics, and you’ll find HBD. Visit a school*, and you’ll find HBD. Visit a prison, and you’ll find HBD.

The Establishment Left constantly tells us to “celebrate our differences.” This can only be done when we recognize those differences. Just as we don’t hate others for having different eye conditions, similarly, varying degrees of athletic/intellectual capabilities are not valid reasons for hatred. The forceful repression of such truths, however, can definitely lead to animosity and resentment. This is the situation we live in today.

I hope to meet some of y’all at the Amren conference next month – where we can speak of such things openly and as gentlemen and ladies.

*Note that this article, while exploring a plethora of theories to explain the race gap in academic achievement, completely ignores any genetic explanation; that would be heresy.

    Some have predicted a future like Brazil for America. Black. Mulatto. White.
    Not quite a first world country anymore.
    My opinion is that the white male will be eradicated except for the mega wealthy ones
    like Trump that play along. He and his family have a nice underground lair waiting for them.
    There are underground developments that almost resemble the surface. They have been under
    construction for years.
    I believe there will ALWAYS be white women just as there will always be breeds of animals.
    Bottom line: There simply are no other women except white women. It’s quite technologically
    possible to have white women breeding centers without existing white males.
    In general-with the exception of the women-I see that white race dissolving like an Alka Seltzer
    tablet. The result will be the lightning of the races, and an intellectual and asectic upgrading
    of the non-white races.
    It’s kind of like the supposed motivation for the alien abduction theories. They want to mix with
    humans to upgrade their species.

    It’s quite a coincidence that you just discussed racial differences in vision. The other day, I was talking to one of my psychology professors about racial differences in intelligence. She told me that IQ is not a good predictor of anything and that nobody in her department finds studies involving IQ credible. I asked her what she thought of physical correlates of IQ such as, myopia. (Myopia is negatively correlated with IQ and East Asians are the most likely to be myopic and blacks are the least likely.) She told me that children who read a lot are more likely to need glasses. I am extremely skeptical of her claim because American Renaissance reviewed the book The g Factor by Arthur Jensen and said that doctors can tell at a young age whether a child will need glasses. Maybe I’ll send my professor that book review.

    After Jan. 20 2017 the point is moot. The official enslavement of the white race beings.
    The prophacies of the Black Hebrews become vindicated.
    The Western world is finished. A new Dark Ages desends.
