Race realism, in the strictest sense of the word, is the belief that the races of mankind are biologically real, as a fact of nature and not just a social construct, something created by the rules and prejudices of society.
In a broader sense it means realism about race as opposed to political correctness. Not only are races a fact of nature, but so are the differences between them, particularly in intelligence and behaviour. Something that the politically correct stick their heads in the sand about and deny – leading America into unwise policies on affirmative action, immigration and so on.
Some of those who call themselves race realists:
- David Duke,
- Steve Sailer,
- Jared Taylor of American Renaissance,
- J Philippe Rushton of the Pioneer Fund,
- Charles Murray of “The Bell Curve”,
- HBDers, the scientific wing of race realism. If race is a fact of nature, then it can and should be studied by science.
Race realists say the mainstream press and top universities in America are are controlled by the left and its ideas of political correctness, spreading their lies and shaming people out of openly expressing their honest opinions.
Most race realists seem to think they are not racists. Because to them racism requires hatred. So the belief that some races are better than others is not racist: it is simply the honest truth.
Most race realists in America think whites are better than blacks and Latinos. Some are against Jews while others are Jewish themselves!
Oddly, Latinos and Jews are not real races in any biological sense. Not even blacks: in America you can be 34% African and still pass for white – or you can be as little as 12% African and still count as black!
By the 1970s most biologists gave up the idea of there being more than one living human race. Race realists say it is because American universities fell under control of the left. Biologists say it is because there is only one living subspecies of Homo sapiens or Homo anything: Homo sapiens sapiens.
At the genetic level, there is shockingly little difference between people from different parts of the world. From Denmark to Kenya, from Senegal to Siberia, there is less genetic variation among humans than you would find even in a small troupe of chimps. So much so that to account for the genetics it seems that Homo sapiens must have been nearly wiped out 75,000 years ago (the Toba catastrophe theory).
It is not just since the 1970s that biology has been moving in a direction against race realism: for nearly 200 years scientists who took their ideas from anti-black racism have been on the losing side – from polygenism to craniometry to parallel evolution to the evolution of hominid intelligence outside of Africa.
Science, to its great credit, can and does, at least in the long run, rise above the political and social beliefs that support slavery, colonialism, neocolonialism and racism.
