The Mediterranean Race and Chimpouts

Friday, April 13th, 2012

The classical Mediterranean race clearly exists in South Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Truth be told, Nordics are basically “depigmented Mediterraneans,” so by that extended definition, it also exists in Northern Europe. Both Nordics and Mediterraneans are part of the Mediterranean race “branch” and other Caucasoid groups like “Alpines” are closely related.

My view, which is influenced by parts of Dienekes, Caryleton Coon, Forum Biodiversity, anthroscape, wikipedia, google, cavilla-sforaza and all the different things I have gotten my hands on has produced MASSIVE CHIMPOUTS. When I “introduced” the idea of a Mediterranean race at Odessa Syndicate (it was replaced by Occidental Dissent, I no longer post there, just comment) and “the phora” (it no longer exists) and stumble inn (still in existence) MASSIVE CHIMPOUTS followed.

JW Holiday / Ted Sallis chimped out like a wannabe WN wop dago. “Der Socialist” chimped out. “1-800″ chimped out. Even the posters on Odessa Syndicate did not like the idea. And so I raise my middle finger in defiance, I still maintain that the concept of a Mediterranean race is a correct one.

The reason all these people chimped out is because they like to promote the idea of “European unity” but what the Mediterranean race proves is that many of the major changes in sub-racial characteristic happened in Europe. Nordics and Alpines mainly separated in Europe. What this also proves is that Arabs and North Africans are part of the same race as Europeans. This “hurt the feelings” of many race fakeist “white nationalist” posters. And I still maintain that I am right.

Saying “Italians are closer to Germans then they are to Syrians genetically” is like saying “Manhattan is closer to Brooklyn than it is to Bergen County New Jersey.” It may be true, but they are both pretty close and Manhattan clearly stands between Bergen County NJ and Brooklyn and all three are part of the same Metro Area.

So we can see why Italians and Southern Europeans often look like Arabs, because they are intermediates between Nordics and Arabs and the genes that happened to change were not related to pigmentation.

edit : by the way, the majority of people on anthroscape, forum biodiversity and biodiversity forum (now defunct) agree with what I have to say about racial classification ever since around late 2008. I made a few errors, but clearly I am seen as knowing what I am talking about.

Casual Thoughts on Anthropology

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Note that this post is subject to revision. I just wanted to get some ideas out. I know this is not up to the standards that I want it to be up to.

My view on racial categories is that races are determined by bone structure variation that passes a threshold and that skin color is only a secondary trait within the race.

A dark and light skinned Caucasoid is still a Caucasoid.
A dark and light skinned Mongoloid is still a Mongoloid.
A dark and light skinned Negroid is still a Negroid.

There is a range. For instance Alpine Caucasoids have wider skulls than Nordic-Mediterranean Caucasoids, but because this is within a certain tolerance it is still the same race.

The three main racial traits are bone structure, pigmentation and “special dna” (mtdna, y chromosomes, population consistent autosomal markers, SNP markers). While pigmentation varies greatly within a race, bone structure only varies within a certain tolerance.

Genetic drift happens all the time. Random genetic variation happens even between say Poland and the Ukraine or Germany and Austria. Most of DNA does not actually do anything, so most genetic drift does not have a racial effect. This random genetic shift eventually hits a breaking point where it starts to affect bone structure and pigmentation. But changes in pigmentation happen easily whereas it takes a bigger change to change the bone structure. Japanese and Whites may both have developed White skin, but they developed this separately. The difference in bone structure is still obvious.

Unlike Arthur Kemp and “nordicists” (who believe that Mediterraneans are negroid-Nordic hybrids) I believe the White race was born in Africa and Nordic pigmentation was not a feature of the original white race. I believe it migrated to the Middle East and then it migrated to Europe. I believe genetic drift occurred, but it still took a while to shed the Mediterranean skin color. Eventually, in Northern Europe (not Southern Europe), the skin color was shed. I am unsure if the Alpine populations gained their slightly wider skull independently or if they took in small amounts (2-3%) of Mongoloid (Chinese/Japanese/Korean etc.) blood. It is indisputable that there are tiny amounts of Mongoloid blood in Northern Europe and Negroid blood in Southern Europe, but what caused the process of aplinization? I believe the answer is probably that the slight admixture with Mongoloids did make the difference, because “Alpines” cluster closer to Nordic-Mediterraneans of the same nation as opposed to clustering with other Alpines. This makes the idea of a “common orgin” of Alpines unlikely and a common cause more likely. However the Jury is still out, it is possible that Alpines would have gotten wider skulls if Europeans had no contact with Mongoloids.

Caucasians form a very tight cluster, even including Arabs and North Africans. People who are over 90% Caucasian cluster closer to their own race than people who are over 90% Mongoloid or Negroid. Caucasians have less diversity.

The small amount of diversity within the White race explains why Middle Easterners and Europeans were able to maintain similar pigmentation levels until Europeans moved to Northern Europe.

What is interesting however is that even though European Mediterraneans look like Arabs pigmentation wise, they cluster closer to Nordics. This in my opinion means that Nordics evolved out of Mediterraneans and that European Mediterraneans evolved out of middle Eastern Mediterraneans.

The peoples of South Asia (Iran, India etc.) clearly are mixes between Caucasians and non-Caucasians elements. There is a pretty substantial Mongolian element in South Asia. Iranians look down on Arabs too.

It should be noted that in the absence of modern technology, certain traits are preferred by certain climates over others.

Trey Martin – Gangster Bolshevik Martyr

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Free Media Productions has been relatively silent about the event involving Zimmerman and Martin.

Elsewhere, I have let on about my stance on this, but officially nothing has been written on this website.

Personally, I think Zimmerman went around with a loaded weapon looking for someone to provoke. He singled out Martin because he “looked wierd,” called the cops on him and then physically approached him. The only thing Trey did was not pound his head hard enough into the sidewalk. He should have broke it off.

Zimmerman picked a fight and was lucky to have a gun. Trey put it down for the hood. 8-19.

By the way, I don’t buy the media narrative that it was a “white supremacist” attacking a Black person. Like many people of Latino heritage, Zimmerman appears to be part Indian. He may be part White but he’s not completely White. If you want to see a White hispanic, look at that Cypress Hill video I posted a few days ago. B-real looks like the typical Caucasian hispanic.

8-19. I can only wish more people would rebel like Trey Martin who is a martyr.

Mixture Between Jews and Gentiles in Europe

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

All these studies are old news but I am going to post them to paint a picture, starting with this one.

In Southern Europe during the Roman Empire, there was HIGH mixture between Jews and Gentiles, both Caucasian. This was not a rare thing, mind you Zionists and Neo-Nazis who both try to allege that Jews are a pure race.

That’s when the Jewish communities in Italy, the Balkans, and North Africa originated, from Jews who migrated or were expelled from Palestine and from people who converted to Judaism during Hellenic times. During that period Jews proselytized with an effectiveness that would put today’s Mormons to shame: at the height of the Roman Empire, as the Roman historian Josephus chronicled, mass conversions produced 6 million practicing Jews, or 10 percent of the population of the Roman Empire. The conversions brought in DNA that had not been part of the original gene pool in the land of Abraham.


Of the non-Jewish Europeans, northern Italians were most genetically similar to the Jews, followed by the Sardinians and French. The Druze, Bedouins, and Palestinians were closest to the Iranian, Iraqi, and Syrian Jews.”

The article as well indicates support for the idea of the Mediterranean race (link to Coon). Basically, the entire area around the Mediterranean sea is linked by physical traits and ancestry. Europeans of the North are depigmented Mediterraneans, but the Mediterranean race also existed in the Middle East and North Africa. So if we accept this theory (and the theory is correct, Coon was and is right), Jews were “white” before they ever mixed with Italians. Both Jews and Italians had Mediterranean pigmentation and Caucasian bone features.

That is evidence of “a shared genetic history of related Middle Eastern and non-Semitic Mediterranean ancestors who chose different religious and tribal affiliations.”

Then in Eastern Europe, Ashkenazi Jews continued to mix (this does not apply to Sephardic Jews, but Sephardic Jews did mix with Italians). Not as much, but they did continue to mix. See This link

Ashkenazim also descend, in a smaller way, from European peoples from the northern Mediterranean region and even less from Slavs and Khazars. The non-Israelite Y-DNA haplogroups include Q (typically Central Asian) and R1a1 (typically Eastern European but the Ashkenazic variant comes from somewhere in Asia, probably Central Asia).

Progressive Nationalism

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

I have pondered why nations formed in the first place. My first thought was that nations are the result of the imperialistic conquering of tribes in ancient times. Now however, I believe this is simplistic. It is more likely that nations, identities, languages, cultures and separate human communities formed due to the lack of the capacity to globalize. The ability to travel did not exist the way it does today, societies were in different stages of economic development and religions were taken as literal truth. A Progressive Nationalist understands the effects and history of technological and economic development, as well as the natural consequences. As Marx concluded, new classes always arise.

If one accepts this view, it would seem to follow that one would accept the view that globalization is the logical conclusion of technology. After all, human beings were merely unable to globalize but now they are. However, it brings up the old saying; “Just because you can do something does not necessarily mean that you should.” There is a difference between aligning workers towards a common goal against an exploiting class and accepting the capitalist mindset that a human being is only an individual with no communitarian ties. Capitalist internationalism is not the same thing as labor solidarity. As far as the matter of race goes, Marx had views that would be considered politically incorrect by today’s standards.

Marxist-Leninists believe in international working class collaboration, but once a nation becomes class conscious, it can use its identity in a progressive sense. Implicitly, the Cuban Revolution used progressive populist Nationalism to fight Batista, though Castro likes to downplay this. Stalin implicitly appealed to national identity with his “Socialism in one country” and he did have separate nations internal to USSR, including a Ukrainian state. In addition, the Polish, German, Romanian and Hungarian Communist regimes were not even part of USSR, though closely tied in alliances. If those examples are not blatant enough, then Mao, Solath Sar (“Pol Pot”) and Kim Jong Il made the implementation of national characteristics an explicit part of theory. Terms that suggests this include “Socialism with Chinese characteristics”, “the Khmer Rouge” and “Juche.” The theoretical writings behind all three examples elaborate on the extent to which each implied that Socialism must be tailored to intersect with Nationalism.

Most Marxists do not interpret internationalism in the way that Trotskyites do. Trotsky’s view of internationalism included the literal forced intermarrying of races and he called it eugenics. It included fighting for revolutions without considering the material conditions on the ground. This is not a class conscious analysis. The typical Marxist line is merely a call for collaboration between workers against the exploiting class. Trotsky went off in a different and unmarxist direction because he was less concerned about protecting the working class and was more concerned with unraveling the fabric of existing communities. While we can acknowledge that Trotsky was a great war leader and an articulate writer, he was an opportunist and a Menshevik (and originally rejected revolution), he weakened the Soviet Union by dividing it and had he taken power he would have destroyed it. His warped and twisted interpretation of internationalism served as a perfect caricature of “evil Jew” to allow Hitler to take power and threaten the survival of individuals of Jewish descent, Slavic descent and the Soviet Union.

Progressive Nationalists, or Marxists who believe in the synthesis between a class conscious analysis and a positive national identity, must be enemies of Trotskyism and Hitlerism simultaneously. They must also seek to view the world scientifically and economically, but understand the value and utility of human communities. Nazism, Trotskyism and primitive Nationalism cannot be seen as compatible with class conscious and progressive Nationalism. Even though Italian Fascism is less crude than the other ideologies, it too has irreconcilable differences. Religious fundamentalists may sometimes fight for progressive causes, but religious fundamentalism itself is not compatible with thought that is anti-imperialist and economically/technologically progressive. A progressive Nationalist realizes that nations go through different stages of development like economies do and believes that future stages of the nation should be woven in class conscious fabric. Progressive Nationalists oppose the exploitative class wherever it is, even if the time for revolution is inopportune (such as the Middle East and America). Progressive Nationalists recognize their nation as a string of dominos against imperialism and perhaps can be considered pan-Nationalists. This is a mode of thought that rejects both nation wrecking ideology and reactionary ideology.

Because antisemitism seems to be the bread and butter of most reactionary ideologues, it needs to be picked apart in this important theoretical post. A surprisingly high number of people attack globalism as a Jewish conspiracy, often caused by “genetic programming.” In truly bizarre fashion, today’s internet dissidents go further than Hitler and do not only label Jews a race but a non-White race. They allege that Jews (who they view as non-Whites) lead Whites to globalization. A class conscious analysis of economics rejects the idea of blaming Jews as the cause of globalization. The desire to globalize society is a result of the uneven development of capitalism.

Historically, the fact that Judaism, Christianity and Islam exist in Europe and the fact that paganism existed in Egypt and predated Judaism in the Near East is evidence that the Mediterranean Sea was not the major demarcation point separating the races. Instead, the Ural Mountains and Sahara Desert were those points. While people lacked the ability to travel worldwide, it should be noted that empires crossed the Mediterranean Sea all the time and fought each other. When Carleton Coon defined his Mediterranean race, he attributed membership to every side of the sea and considered northern Europeans Nordics to be “depigmented Mediterraneans.” The point is that it did not take any special globalization to bring Judaism, Christianity and Islam from the Middle East to North Africa and Europe. Christianity, Judaism and Islam stem from the teachings of Abraham and Moses. Variations of this creed extended throughout all three Caucasian regions. Paganism also existed in all three continents, from Egypt to Rome to Russia. As a matter of a fact, Abraham fought against Jewish Pagans. Jews did not plunder Europe in recent history as antisemitic mythology alleges, but Europe derives its Caucasian origins from the Near East. Most importantly, Jews are not the cause of globalization, though the effects of nazism have lead Jews to embrace reaction-oriented ideas such as extreme free market capitalism, open boarders and a form of Zionism that is not progressive Nationalism.

The Mediterranen Caucasian Subtype

Friday, February 11th, 2011

Coon Link
-from North Africa, to Arabia, to Southern Europe (and southern Romania)

A lot of people suffer from the delusion that this is an outdated concept, and that newer science has repudiated this idea in favor of unifying all Europeans. JW Holiday suggested that races are separated by continents in an article that I once praised, because he did make a few good other points (despite being wrong on that point). First of all the race is Caucasian. All Caucasians cluster. But there are Mediterranean tendencies, and those tendencies occur both inside and outside of Europe.

Some people argue that “modern science” debunked Coon in every single way. The newest science indeed proves the older anthropologists (such as coon) correct in many ways. The Mediterranean Caucasian Subtype is just as validated by modern science as it was by Coon.

Europeans come from the near east.

below I provide some scientific modern evidence for my claims above. This is stronger evidence than haplogroup mapping. It is based off autosomal DNA (the entire genome).

That is evidence of “a shared genetic history of related Middle Eastern and non-Semitic Mediterranean ancestors who chose different religious and tribal affiliations.”

Making fun of “racial” anti-semites

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

The core belief of “racial” antisemitism is that there is a “european race,” and a separate “middle eastern race,” and that Jews “invaded” Europe. However non-Jewish Europeans were just “always there.”

I won’t even get into the fact that neolithic Europeans replaced paleolithic ones (except in a few rare cases), or that in the same way that Jews are a nation, so is each nation of Europe. In other words, you can genetically split a German person from a Polish person. But I’ll ignore that. And I’ll just poke fun.

The anti-semites must believe that Jews had special access to kosher ships, which allowed them to cross the Mediterranean sea when no-one else could. Because in the mind of the anti-semite, Europe and the Neat East contain two neatly separated races. Through some sort of miracle, the Jews made it across the Mediterranean. Perhaps the “Evil Jews” “conspired” as to not allow Gentiles from the same geographical region to enter Europe!

“Racial anti-semites” must also believe that Europeans descend from Neanderthals instead of Caucasians. And that races are formed of identical twins, not differing families and nationalities.

Tim Wise Throws Down a Monster Slam

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

He says “In your face.” “Shut up Nazis, I’m white!”

He insults David Duke, American Renaissance, the National Alliance, and a lot of people.
The link

Had they not long ago demonstrated their capacity for sociopathy, Nazis would prove amusing. Amusing and not at all threatening or worrisome, sort of like those people who dress up their dogs in fancy sweaters when the weather turns cold, or those who enjoy pilates.

But as it is, Nazis (and note, I am using this term in its proper context, not loosely as is so common nowadays to refer merely to those with whom one disagrees), are not very amusing. At all. And this is in no small part due to their proven penchant for mass murder and their almost pathological detachment from any sense of a common humanity: things that make one worthy of being avoided, or, alternately locked away for a long stretch of time, rather than, say, being engaged by others in idle conversation.

I’ve had more than a few encounters with these types. And again, I mean real, honest-to-God Nazis, as in, admirers of Hitler. I would call them neo-Nazis, but seeing as how none of them have had an original thought since the fall of the German Reich, I’ll abstain from doing so. There is nothing new about them. They are decidedly old school in their fascism: Paleolithic Nazis, or perhaps Jurassic, but never neo.

Actually, my first such encounter with a Nazi was in high school, where I bumped up against a wanna-be skinhead. I say wanna-be, because as it turned out, this kid wasn’t very committed to the whole Hitler, master-race thing. He just thought it was cool and “punk” to wear leather jackets with swastikas on them, because Sid Vicious used to do it, or something to that effect. Once, when a bunch of us were hanging out at a friend’s house, this guy showed up to wish a happy birthday to one of the girls who was there — who was Jewish — and at some point, apparently gripped by a Nazi equivalent of Tourette’s shouted out “fuck Jews.” I responded by saying “fuck you,” and reminding him that not only was I Jewish, but so was the girl he had come to see. “Oh, sorry,” he said, before slinking away, somewhat embarrassed. He went on to be a concert promoter for a while, including for quite a few ska and reggae shows, so, ya know, that whole racist thing didn’t last long with him.

Later, my encounters with Nazis were of a decidedly more disturbing nature, tracking as they did my involvement with the statewide coalition in Louisiana that was implicated in the defeat of one of their own, David Duke, when he ran for U.S. Senate and Governor in 1990 and 1991. Both Duke and I are still around, me regretting the former and they the latter, and so it goes. These encounters were particularly unamusing, involving as they did death threats, skinheads (real ones this time) following me from work to my home, and others trying to run me off the road, as well as the receipt of envelopes filled with dead cockroaches, promises of future gas chambers, or even better, human fecal matter. At least I’m assuming it was human.

Then, once I began to speak around the country about issues of race and racism, I would occasionally be greeted by various white supremacists (most of them quite dedicated to Hitlerism), like the guys in Washington State who used to follow me around, and who once came to a reception held for me at Central Washington University. There, amid tea cakes, finger sandwiches, and, as I recall, some especially tasty lemon squares, Nazi Things 1 and 2 calmly pontificated about the “faddish” nature of jazz music, the inherent superiority of the “white-created” diatonic scale, and how polka would enjoy a renaissance once the white revolution triumphed. When one of the two young men that very month posted a profile on a Nazi web board, in which he indicated his desire to find a woman who could “get down and dirty” but still comport herself as a lady, I suggested to others on the campus (where the lonely heart was enrolled), that they should wheat-paste oversized posters everywhere they could, with his picture on them, alongside the singles ad verbiage he had posted, and the headline, “Find This Nazi a Date. Even Assholes Need Love.” I don’t know if they ever did it, but he left the school shortly thereafter, bringing to four the number of colleges at which this member of the self-proclaimed master race had failed to graduate.

Later, the hilarity continued with still more death threats, called in to schools where I was scheduled to speak, or, a few years ago, a call placed to my home by a Georgia-based bigot affiliated with Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance, who woke my wife and I from our sleep, talked all tough, and then, informed that I had his name and number thanks to the wonders of caller ID, went strangely silent. Then last year, a particularly awkward looking young man who claimed to be a member of the white terrorist group, The National Alliance (which group is basically defunct, but apparently forgot to tell this guy), came to one of my speeches in Kentucky. He — all 140 pounds of him, and even then only if he was soaking wet and carrying a lead-lined copy of Mein Kampf — was all big and bad until I began to verbally humiliate him in front of 300 people. At that point, he turned tail and ran, as Nazis always do nowadays, back to their bunkers, where sadly lacking access to their very own Walther PPK, they fail to emulate their hero fully and finally, if you know what I mean.

In any event, most such encounters in the past several years have been of an electronic kind, rather than up close and personal. E-thuggery is, after all, so much easier and less messy. And so I am regularly the subject of attack threads on Nazi websites, where Aryan warriors spend countless hours each day — rather than, you know, working — and seek to remind themselves how superior to everyone else they are, even as so many of them continue to live in their parents’ basements, long past the age of 40. They give themselves bad-ass Volkish nicknames, create avatars with swastikas, or SS lightning bolts, or pictures of Edward Norton as a skinhead in American History X, so as to compensate for their spectacular professional and social inadequacies. Oh, and they like to point out especially that I am…wait for it…Jewish.

And this they say as if it were news; like some big secret had just been revealed by they, the lords of research, the racist equivalent of CSI detectives or something. And I suppose my Jewishness is news to some, the same way it might be news to some that Simon and Garfunkel haven’t released new work in a really long time, or that that Captain guy, from the Captain and Tennille, has not really, ever, piloted a boat. Next thing you know they’ll be pointing out that I’m also a father, something about which they’ll be sure to let everyone know, right about the time our daughters are graduating from high school.

I, of course, have never denied being Jewish. Rather, I have spoken of it often, in public presentations, at least two dozen essays, and in my book, White Like Me, which has been out for five years.

It is this last matter that has them so steamed in fact. It’s the point they have tried to make on the Amazon.com review boards for the book; namely that I am an “imposter,” merely pretending to be white, when in fact I am a stealth Jew, or something to that effect. As is true for all Nazis, to be Jewish makes one a member of an entirely separate, distinct and evil race of Asiatics, and disqualifies the carrier of such genetic pathogens as these from being able to honestly claim kinship to real white people: principally good Nordic types like themselves. To white supremacists, the white race is a very special club to which membership is limited — and like Spanky and Alfalfa in the Little Rascals, who policed the borders of the He-Man Woman Hater’s Club — they and they alone know who belongs and who does not. Jews do not, and how dare we try and hitch our wagons to their superior race.

Whenever they have sent personal e-mails my way, to remind me (as if I had forgotten) that I’m not really white because of my Hebraic roots, I have wondered: do they really think I’m trying to fake my way in to their club so I can be one of the cool kids? So I can be one of them? Apparently this is what has them worried, which I find slightly hilarious, suggesting as it does that my lack of connection to a bunch of people with such a history of conquest, slaughter and genocide would somehow make me feel inferior.

In any event, what makes Nazis especially silly in this regard is that as they guard the borders of real whiteness they ignore two points in particular that render their objections to my claimed Jewish-whiteness moot. The first of these has to do with their claims to scientific certitude and the second — and even more important point — concerns the way in which I am using the notion of whiteness, as a social category, unrelated to any scientific notions of race whatsoever. And it is with regard to these two points that Nazis demonstrate their lack of intellectual heft and general all-around ignorance.

First, as per the science. Although Nazis insist Jews are a distinct biological population, separate and apart from white people — and although there is some recent haplotype research indicating specific Jewish clustering in Ashkenazi populations of Central and Eastern European Jews, which makes them more like Jews elsewhere than non-Jews in the same countries — there are a number of problems with this claim, and the insistence that it makes American Jews like myself something other than white.

To begin, whatever “genetic distance” exists in certain respects between Jews — who, due to low rates of intermarriage for most of recorded history have maintained certain gene frequencies over time — and non-Jews, that distance is not large enough to suggest sub-speciation, which is to say, the true creation of a uniquely “Jewish race.” This, according to the very scientists who have mapped the Jewish haplotypes, and whose work is seized on by Nazis to prove otherwise. In short, Nazis either can’t read academic research, or they can, but can’t manage to tell the truth about it.

More to the point, and as regards myself, my Jewish lineage extends only on my Y-chromosome, that is to say, my paternal paternal line, as three of my four grandparents are of Northern European and decidedly non-Jewish derivation. Which is to say, that unless the Nazis can explain — and they cannot — how the “Jew genes” arguably extant on one-fourth of my family line manage to cancel out the Gentile genes on the other three-quarters (and in which case, whiteness would seem to be awfully recessive, and indicative of biological inferiority rather than its preferable opposite), their attempt to erase me from the circle of whiteness amounts to a giant pseudo-scientific fail. The failure is made all the more acute when one considers that the research on Jewish genetic clustering was only done on a few hundred Jews, all of whom had four Jewish grandparents. For many American Jews, myself included, whose relatives married Gentiles, this research means literally nothing, as it does not speak to our genome in the least, no matter what the Nazis may think that genome portends.

Of course, and more importantly, that there may be certain genetic tendencies that cluster in populations of Jews says nothing about the larger point that Nazis seek to make: namely, that these genes confer upon their carriers an insatiable desire to destroy white people. No one — neither scientists nor Nazis (these being mutually exclusive categories almost by definition) — have ever demonstrated that the genes they find so important, and which suggest Jewish lineage, actually have any relationship to known characterological or behavioral traits. They merely take it on faith that Jews are evil because theological bigots like Martin Luther and insecure, impotent, and psychopathic killers like Adolf Hitler tell them so.

But finally, and this is the truly critical point: When persons like myself talk about our whiteness, or white privilege, we are not particularly concerned about genetics at all, and whatever biology may or may not say about race. By definition we are discussing race as a social category, with social meaning, irrespective of DNA. In other words, I am “white” in this society (and around the world) because to most anyone with whom I would interact, I will appear “white.” Employers, loan officers, police, teachers, and average everyday folks on the street would look at me, presume my whiteness, and treat me accordingly. Which is to say, I can reap the benefits of presumed whiteness — the presumptions of competence, and law-abidingness, and credit-worthiness, and general intelligence, none of which people of color can assume others will presume about them — no matter what my genes may or may not say about my ancestry. By the same token, historically there have been tens of thousands of folks who were African American by ancestry and most of their lineage, but who were light enough, and whose facial features and hair texture were sufficiently “white-like,” to be perceived as white and reap white privilege too.

In short, whiteness as I use the concept in my writing and work has nothing to do with genetics. Whiteness is conferred by the society based on what people presume you to be. And that presumption has nothing to do with genotype — since observers cannot know your DNA just by looking at you — but rather, everything to do with phenotype, which is to say the way certain genes are expressed outwardly, as with skin pigmentation, and a handful of other characteristics, which are controlled by about six genes out of 30,000 in the overall human genome. So I am not “pretending” to be anything. I couldn’t care less about genetic whiteness and my relationship to it, as I find the entire concept absurd. But mostly, it just doesn’t matter. My experiences with whiteness and white privilege have to do with the way I am received and perceived by others. Others, that is, besides Nazis, whose judgments matter quite little.

Ashkenazi/Sephardic Jews are most closely related to Northern Italians

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Sorry Ted Sallis, but you apparently have no clue what you are rambling about!

The link (read both pages)

I already proved that many Italians and Greeks are further from Northwestern Europe genetically than Jews are in an earlier post, but there is more evidence.

The closest match to Ashkenazi Jews…?
NOT southern Italians.
NOT Greeks.
NOT Arabs.

North Italians.

Of the non-Jewish Europeans, northern Italians were most genetically similar to the Jews, followed by the Sardinians and French. The Druze, Bedouins, and Palestinians were closest to the Iranian, Iraqi, and Syrian Jews. That is evidence of “a shared genetic history of related Middle Eastern and non-Semitic Mediterranean ancestors who chose different religious and tribal affiliations.” Adds Ostrer, “the study supports the idea of a Jewish people linked by a shared genetic history. Yet the admixture with European people explains why so many European and Syrian Jews have blue eyes and blond hair.”

Southern Europeans were the closest genetic cousins of Ashkenazi, Sephardic, and Italian Jews, reflecting the large-scale conversion of these Southern European populations to Judaism some 2,000 years ago, when European Jewry was forming. The Sephardic groups share genetic makers with North Africans, probably a result of marriages between Moors and Jews in Spain from 711 to 1492.

Race Realism vs. White Nationalism

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

The issues of political correctness, necessary mass movement (which is anti-worker), unemployment due partially to globalization, crime and American imperialism are legitimate issues that are butchered by complicit “mainstream society.”

While this is true, only an imbecile would believe some of the things that organized white activists say.

If “mainstream society” is dumb, “white nationalists” are “double dumb.” “The Jew isn’t white but the Greek/Italian/Armenian/Russian is because magical lines separate Europe from the near east, and the Jew is responsible for every problem I described in the first paragraph.” To anyone who really studies anthropology and has a clue how the world actually works, people like Ted Sallis are a joke.

To top it off, these people take over free speech forums, and then harass people who disagree with them on any issue until they leave, are banned, or totally flip out.

Even without the idiotic Judeo-obsessive non-sense, to say that race is above all else is a ridiculous position. Race matters, but as a component of a whole. To exaggerate its importance is to both deceive and isolate oneself.

To say that regionalism is nothing because people are white is non-sense. Culture differs from region to region in the US.

Not to mention, back to those genetic studies, Whites can be divided from each other based on nationality. You can split a German and a Pole genetically with high reliability. Hitler hated Slavs. Yet now Slavs are “aryan” because some jackass on the internet decided so.

I’m SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad I have my own website now.
