Lewontin’s Fallacy is alive and well

It’s amazing how many people still cite Lewontin’s Fallacy, in support of racial egalitarianism, as if it’s a reasonable argument.

I’ve been arguing with a man on Quora about race, and he wrote:

You’ve never defined “dominant” so all your claims are BS. The reason biologists (like the one I linked to) say that “race” isn’t testable is that you can’t identify who falls into a “race”. And the similarities between people of different alleged “races” biologically end up being greater than among people within a socalled “race”. “Race” is just pseudoscientific bullshit.

But here’s how you can turn Lewontin’s Fallacy on its head to your advantage. I responded:

You wrote: “And the similarities between people of different alleged “races” biologically end up being greater than among people within a socalled “race”.”

That argument is called Lewontin’s Fallacy. You can read about it by looking it up on Wikipedia. You also wrote: “In fact the evidence is that whites are favored and blacks are three times more likely to be poor”

Don’t you know that there is more income disparity WITHIN races than BETWEEN them? Therefore, according to your own reasoning, you should not be able to cite such statistics in any meaningful way.

Yes, you can use Lewontin’s Fallacy to “disprove” income disparities between the races, along with incarceration rates, healthcare issues, graduation rates and employment differences. All of these are more pronounced among people within races than between races. I don’t expect to get a reasonable response from that man on Quora – though I do expect to get banned pretty soon. You can read the entire discussion here, and feel free to join in if you want.

I found this gem on Quora

I’ve been participating in the online forum Quora recently, trying to guide people to the truth (my opinions :). When I saw the following, I knew I had to share it – as a cautionary tale:

In 2013, my baby sister, 22 years old at the time, was murdered by her “best friend” during an argument. Being friends, my sister felt no need to be afraid for her safety and felt safe in arguing with her “friend.” The other girl, deciding her reputation was being damaged, pulled a knife and stabbed my sister in the neck. The injury killed her within minutes.

In court, the entire ordeal was turned in to a black vs white, state of our country, type case. My sister was white, while her friend was black. The lawyer decided his best defense was to claim that the only reason this wasn’t being viewed as self defense was because the defendant was black. It was nauseating.

Their “friendship” was diminished and my baby sister was painted as a dangerous girl who could have attacked any moment, and so the girl was only protecting herself by taking action. I watched for 5 days as this nonsense went on. On the 5th day, I watched a jury release my sisters killer so they couldn’t be painted as racists.

Watching this lawyer sway the jury and turn this case into a case of race was so dishonorable to my sisters memory. She helped raise her boyfriends black children, dated a black man, had multiple black friends, and it was all torn apart for the sake of a not guilty verdict.

Criminal defense attorneys are the worst.

“Make America Great Again” Portland walk

My son’s in town visiting. It was his idea to walk around Portland wearing “Make America Great Again” hats. Unfortunately, he only had one, which I grabbed and wore. He did, however, have a nice Trump t-shirt, which he wore.

I doubted anything dramatic would happen, and I was right. We got some nasty looks from a few lefty women, which I relished (I mean the looks, not the women). We got a few thumbs up and kudos from passersby. After a while, we got hungry, and decided to visit a Lebanese restaurant where I’d eaten before. The owner almost fell backward when he saw my son’t t-shirt, and then gave him a robust thumbs up! Yes, the owners are Christian.

I’m going to have a lot of free time the next few weeks, so hopefully, I’ll actually be posting.

The “Chedder Man” hype

A ten thousand year old Briton, whose remains were discovered over a century ago, has yielded some of his secrets – courtesy of modern DNA analysis. According to The Daily Mail:

The first ancient Britons had black skin, dark curly hair and blue eyes, according to DNA tests.

The ‘extraordinary’ findings were made by cutting-edge genetic tests and facial reconstruction techniques carried out for the first time on the bones of ‘Cheddar Man’ who died 10,000 years ago…

He said in the documentary: ‘If a human with that colour skin wandered around now, we’d call him black, and a lot darker than we’d expect for Europe as well…

He added: ‘It really shows up that these imaginary racial categories that we have are really very modern constructions, or very recent constructions that are really not applicable to the past at all.’

Dr Rick Schulting, an archaeology professor at Oxford University said: ‘It may be that we may have to rethink some of our notions of what it is to be British, what we expect a Briton to look like at this time.’

Perhaps, if we define “race” purely by skin-color, then one could characterize Chedder Man as “black.” But look at him:


Those are clearly Caucasian features, and we wouldn’t look twice if we encountered such a man in India or Egypt. Most Caucasians aren’t white, even today. Admittedly, he’d probably qualify for Affirmative Action – or he’d be told to lay off the tanning beds.

Dr. Booth’s claim that this is somehow a blow to the classical concept of race is absurd. The opposite is true. If Britons of the recent past were so much darker than modern Britons, then this illustrates how quickly populations adapt to their environments. If only 10,000 years is sufficient to alter our skin-color so dramatically, then surely we can expect more profound adaptations over the 40,000 years (or more) since the races have diverged.

That Chedder Man would not be mistaken for a modern Briton is testimony to the importance of race. For Dr. Booth to claim otherwise is an insult to reason. He should give back his degree and hit the books again.

Let’s say, for argument’s sake, that such adaptations could take place within one or two generations. If this were the case, then I would agree that we shouldn’t worry about racial differences so much. But how many of us are willing to wait 10,000 years for “equality” to finally set in?

On another note, this discovery (should it turn out to be valid) sheds light on a mystery I’ve been struggling with for years.

It involves the spread of Indo-European languages and Afro-Asiatic languages. I’ve always wondered how it could be that languages could spread across racial boundaries, seemingly without much genetic contribution to go with them. If the original Indo-Europeans were akin to modern-day Iranians (for example), then how is it that the blond peoples of Northern Europe show little to no Iranian features? Conversely, if the original Indo-Europeans were blond, how is it that so few people in Southern Asia have those features?

If the ancient Aksumites were as dark as most modern-day Ethiopians, how could they be as Semitic as the fair-skinned peoples of the Levant?

Perhaps these languages spread prior to the development of some of the traits we now associate with various racial groups.

Bring back imperialism

I read an interesting article on Premier Christian Radio (hat-tip to Voice of Europe). It has to do with the plight of migrants who convert to Christianity:

It’s feared that an Afghan Christian covert who sought asylum in Switzerland may be killed if the Swiss government deports him.

Christian legal group ADF International has filed an expert brief with the European Court of Human Rights in support of the man known as A.A. (anonymised for security reasons).

ADF said if he is sent back to his home country he could face severe social and formal persecution, with punishments ranging from lengthy imprisonment to death.

“International law is very clear on the fact that no country should return a refugee to territories where his or her life could be in danger,” said Jennifer Lea, Legal Counsel with ADF International.

“Afghanistan is not a safe place for a Christian convert…”

I would question the sincerity of such converts, since some are suspected of doing so simply to increase their chances of being granted asylum. This case clearly illustrates the point. The article is not clear if he converted in Afghanistan or in Switzerland. I think there should be procedures to test the sincerity of such converts: Have them eat pork while sitting on a copy of the Qur’an. Have them publicly denounce Muhammad.

Whether they convert to Christianity, or simply discard the Islamic faith, if they do so sincerely, then I applaud them. It’s an important step in the right direction, and I don’t think it’s acceptable to send them back home to almost certain death.

On the other hand, Europe can be demographically destroyed by Christians, just as it can be destroyed by Muslims. It shouldn’t be Europe’s responsibility to take in all the Christians of the Muslim world. International law should be clear that this is not expected. Otherwise, every superficial, hedonistic, self-centered, materialistic person in the Muslim world would migrate to Europe and declare himself “Christian.”

In the long-term, what is needed is regions, within Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria etc. that are safe for non-Muslims – and there’s only one way to do this: By force of arms. At least until the local Muslims mature to the point where they can be trusted to respect those who do not share their beliefs. This could take a very long time, considering that such attitudes are in direct contradiction to Islamic teachings.

Perhaps an area, somewhere in Ethiopia for example (which is already mostly Christian), can be designated to house such people until their numbers grow. Then they can raise armies and reconquer some of their native lands from the Muslims.

“Two black men did it”

It’s not uncommon for whites to blame blacks for fictitious crimes, or crimes that they, themselves, committed.

A recent case in Canada illustrates this:

Antoine originally told police that she and Gargol met up with an unidentified white male, while out for drinks. She then claimed to have left the outing early to go to her uncle’s house.

Later that night, she reportedly posted on Gargol’s Facebook page, making it appear that she was looking for her. “Hope you made it home safe,” wrote Antoine.

But the “white male” that she claimed that they met up with never materialized, and authorities found even more holes in the story. Antoine’s uncle later admitted that she asked him to lie and pretend that “two black men” killed Gargol.

A woman disfigured herself with acid, and blamed it on a black woman:

It was a terrifying story: Lizzie Dunn said she was walking down the street in Staten Island, New York, on Monday when a stranger approached her with a question.

“I didn’t know the person,” the 52-year-old told the New York Daily News. “She asked me for cigarette and I told her no.”

Dunn said the woman then asked if she could spare some money. She again refused, she said…

But it all turned out to be a lie, police told NBC New York.

There was no stranger asking for money who sprayed Dunn, police say, because she sprayed herself and fabricated the story…

Police arrived after Kenwood called 911. Dunn told officers that a black woman in her mid-40s assaulted her with the caustic substance. But police later determined that Dunn, who they say had other scars from self-inflicted wounds in the past, sprayed herself with acid from her home, the New York Daily News wrote.
A man accidentally shot his girlfriend, and another man, who accidentally shot himself, blamed it on a black man. And then there was Susan SmithEven Hispanics are in on the action, blaming a black man for setting his girlfriend’s house on fire.
The media gleefully reports such incidents, as if to say, “Blacks are actually no more crime-prone than the rest of us, and here’s evidence that they don’t deserve the bad rap.”
From the comments on the first article above, it appears that many people actually believe that black criminality is a myth perpetuated by such false claims.
Having experienced black criminality first-hand, and having heard many first-hand accounts from other people, I reject this explanation.
Let’s take a look at false accusations of rape.
According to Quartz, women make false accusations about rape for one of four reasons:
But while false accusers often have similar histories, they have various motives. These can be divided into roughly four categories: personal gain, mental illness, revenge, and the need for an alibi.
In three of the above cases, many times there was no specific suspect involved; the accuser had to make one up out of thin-air. How many of those phantom rapists, do you suppose, are women? When was the last time you heard about a crazy woman inventing a story about being raped where the perpetrator was another woman?
We don’t need extensive research to tell us that the number is zero, or close to zero. Why? Because such people pick the most likely type of perpetrator to give substance to their stories. Since men are more likely to rape than women, phantom suspects are most likely to be male. Where’s the outcry?
Additionally, imagine you just killed somebody in a drunken rage, and now you want to deflect blame away from yourself by making up a story. Wouldn’t you want to provide details to your story, to make it more believable? Describing the perpetrator as “black” is just another way of adding specificity to your story, in an effort to make it more believable. Also, if you describe him as “white,” then you must provide additional details, such as hair color, eye color or nose shape. Stating that he is “black” does away with several potential sources of confusion, while still providing the same level of specificity. Describing him as “Asian” would also work, but Asians are far less prone to violent crime than blacks; hence, it’s not as believable.
In a nutshell, the high black crime rate is not an artifact of imaginary black perps, rather, imaginary black perps are an artifact of the black high crime rate.
It’s also worth nothing that there have been many fake “hate-crimes” committed against blacks, and other minorities, but we don’t see the Media taking this as evidence that real ones never occur.

I wonder if they were pro-Diversity

I wonder how many Asians need to be killed by Diversity before they come to their senses. In a world increasingly dominated by savages, whites and Asians should be natural allies.

3 charged in execution-style slayings of couple in gated community

HOUSTON – Three men have been charged with capital murder after investigators accused them of following a suburban Houston couple to their home in an upscale gated community, forcing them into their house at gunpoint, fatally shooting them, then ransacking their house.
