The multicultists among us get very irate when somebody proposes that genetics, or DNA, might determine intelligence, character, and achievement. However, this very confused woman says that White people have racism in their DNA.
Apparently, because of her own 'racist' DNA, she chooses only nonwhite partners.
The article, oddly argued as it is, draws a number of comments, among them, some sensible
What is now called "Racism" used to be what kept communities operating and co-operating. A natural protection throughout the world to keep local local society funcioning. Communities have been destroyed here and that is ok, so long as incomers get their own way?
The PC Brigade and Government have destroyed our way of life and any ideas that people had about co-operating for the greater good. We are now as a result badly damaged and everyone acts in their own interests.
You and your type are what have made things much worse, by tryng to force people to accept what they don't really want, not just regarding people.
I suppose you think this stupid government's proposed "Social Engineering" laws will work. If things are left they will over time work out, but we are all sick and tired of being told what to do and how to live.
You don't appear to have much true satisfaction from your way of life, but that doesn't mean you have the right to advocate what the rest of us do!''
'I read this article in my newspaper today and I must admit that I was disgusted.
I will never buy the Daily Mail again.''
'What PC rubbish.'
and some spout the usual PC nonsense:
'Liz, every race is the same, there are good and bad in all. There are racists of all skin colours.'
'Yes, Liz, racism is in our DNA, in every human being's DNA, whatever their particular race! Unfair but true - and 'whites' are by no means the only or the worst racists around. And whilst I do believe that we should do our best to eradicate it, we should also remember why it came about: not trusting or allowing 'foreigners' within our midst was a way of ensuring our survival, and so is linked to our 'survival instincts'. I'm not excusing it - I look 100% Indian (even to Indian people) and so have experienced racism first-hand, both in the UK and in SA where I was unfortunate enough to live many years ago. And just by the way: non-verbal racism is possibly the most difficult to deal with and the most hurtful.'
And some comments are a baffling mix of what seems good sense mixed with PC twaddle:
"Unless you are black or Asian you cannot know what racism feels like"
Sorry, but that is one of the most pathetic comments I've heard. Having lived/worked in Africa and Asia I know first hand that some (like here, not all) black and Asian people are very racist, often violently so. Here at home, I have white friends living in predominantly Asian communities who have felt it too.
Until the liberal elite of this country accept that all races can be racist, the problem will only get worse.
As you said "We haven't stamped it out, we have merely buried it.", what do you expect? Stamping pushes things into the ground. Britain, like every country, was truly multicultural before the term was invented, but it also had a common culture which helped to unite the various subcultures.
Given time, people sort themselves out, it may take a generation or two but it's lasting change. Once forced, like most things, it never fits properly.'
If I understand this last comment, and I am not sure I do, it seems the writer is saying 'give it time and we will adjust' or society will adjust itself. This is a fatal attitude to take, if that is indeed what the writer is saying. In a generation or two, the change may be irrevocable, and Britain may well be unrecognizable, just as in our country.
In fact, that is what the elites who are pushing this agenda are counting on. And if we believe this next article, it's working.
Revealed: the rise of mixed-race Britain
One in 10 children in the UK now lives in a mixed-race family, a major study reveals today, raising future hopes of a non-racist Britain.
Mixed-race relationships are now so common that some ethnic groups - starting with African-Caribbean - will virtually disappear, the research states. Young people are six times more likely to be mixed-race as adults. Experts believe the findings, which come just days after Prince Harry was rebuked for calling a fellow cadet "Paki", and Prince Charles admitted to referring to an Asian friend as "Sooty", mean that future generations "will not see race in the way we see it".
Lucinda Platt, author of the report and an academic at the Institute of Social and Economic Research at Essex University, describes the shift towards a mixed-race Britain as "dramatic."
A spokeswoman for the commission warned against complacency. "We need to be alert to tensions within communities that may be exacerbated by economic downturn and to remain vigilant against discrimination and divisiveness - particularly across boundaries of faith."
Today's study, commissioned by the EHRC and seen exclusively by the Observer, shows that 9% of children are of "mixed or multiple heritage" - that is, they live with parents from different ethnic groups, or they are themselves of mixed ethnicity. Over the past 14 years the number of children of Caribbean heritage with one white parent has risen from 39% to 49%. Among the Indian population it has increased from 3% to 11%, for Pakistanis from 1% to 4%, and for Chinese from 15% to 35%.
Minorities also tend to be younger. While half of the white British population in Britain is aged over 40, half of the Bangladeshi community is under 21.''
In Germany, it seems there is more resistance to the mix-n-match program:
German minorities still fight to be seen, heard
In Europe, Barack Obama's election as president of the United States was met with euphoria. But now, the continent is peering into the mirror, realizing there is little chance a member of one of its own minorities could reach such prominence any time soon.
Take Germany, for instance, where notions of national identity are still strictly linked to ethnicity. Nonwhite Germans are still fighting to overcome exclusion from mainstream society in many ways.
A 'Monoracial' Country
In a small theater club in Berlin's Neukoelln district, author Sharon Otoo stands on a small stage and, in front of a young, mixed-race audience, reads a work about the lives of black Germans. The daughter of Ghanaian parents, Otoo is angered that German society labels her and the estimated half-million Afro-Germans as foreigners — or treats them as nonexistent. "When you take white as the norm, and everything else is deviant from that, and your advertising is always targeted at white people, or when you write school books and they're targeted at white children, this is, for me, a racist experience," she says.
Otoo is part of a group that monitors racism in the media, repeatedly denouncing ads depicting minorities as comical figures and newspapers' use of physical attributes to describe different races. ''
Well, I can't judge the advertising that appears in Germany, but in our country, advertising seems to be targeted at minorities, who are the favored and coddled groups, and ads depict Whites as 'comical figures' and buffoons -- and those are the ''good'' ads.
On second thoughts, though, advertising in our country is, I think, aimed at White people, but not in a good way; it seems meant to demoralize us and make us feel outnumbered and marginal. It seems meant to make us feel resigned and fatalistic about our 'multiracial' future.
The purpose of these articles, however, seems to be to impart a feeling of inevitability; this is the wave of the future, and you can embrace it and be happy and 'integrated' into multiracial society or you can be -- what's the catchphrase of the day -- 'small-minded. bigoted, and prejudiced' and possibly be a thought criminal.
For some decades now, actually long before the infamous 1960s, the media and the 'elites' have been working to advance this agenda, to encourage mixing and mating among the races, and there has been an emphasis on the idea that we are all just individuals, and that in matters of ''love'' and sex and marriage, only individual wishes matter. This is wrong; the German article illustrates the fact that the children of these supposedly idealistic matings are confused in their sense of themselves, belonging to both worlds and to neither. The fact that they are often not fully accepted by either ''community'' surely must detract from their happiness, and yet 'society' must be blamed, not the misguided individuals who short-sightedly chose to marry or mate outside their natural group.
So instead of regarding the progeny of these unions as unfortunate people who will find it hard to feel a sense of belonging anywhere, we are embarking on a long-term project to change society, to outlaw normal feelings and attitudes about outmarriage, and to coerce people or propagandize people into believing that this kind of thing is good, normal, and even more desirable than the accepted kind of mating.
Not surprisingly, we end up with disturbed individuals like 'Liz', with her hatred of her own 'racist' DNA:
White people, no matter how many community projects we might fund or months we might serve fighting for a foreign cause, are capable of racist thoughts and actions that need to be stamped on, hard.''
How does this deranged woman think that our thoughts 'need to be stamped on, hard?' I would be interested in hearing specifics. The troubling thing is that we have a lot of 'Liz' types in our media, government, and academia. And they would gladly 'stamp on' our thoughts, 'hard.' I suspect that we will be seeing exactly such an effort in the months and years just ahead of us.
And no doubt our new president's ''issues'' regarding his mixed heritage will play a part in determining the agenda.
