Effects of High Testosterone on Human Behavior and Possible Implications for Black Men

Testosterone Linked to Violent Behavior

James Dabbs, Jr., studied 4,462 men in 1990 and found that “the overall picture among the high-testosterone men is one of delinquency, substance abuse and a tendency toward excess.” These men, he added, “have more trouble with people like teachers while they are growing up, have more sexual partners, and are more likely to have gone AWOL in the service and to have used hard drugs,” particularly if they had poor educations and low incomes.

A separate study by Dabbs of young male prison inmates found that high testosterone levels were associated with more violent crimes, parole board decisions against release, and more prison rule violations. Even in women, Dabbs found, high testosterone levels were related to crimes of unprovoked violence, increased numbers of prior charges, and decisions against parole.

The latest study by Dabbs et al., which pooled data from two groups of prisoners, measured testosterone levels in the saliva of 692 adult male prisoners. The researchers found that inmates who committed crimes of sex and violence had higher testosterone levels than inmates who were incarcerated for property crimes or drug abuse. In addition, they say, “inmates with higher testosterone levels… violated more rules in prison, especially rules involving overt confrontation.”

An accumulation of evidence is converging on the conclusion that Blacks have higher testosterone than White men from age 7-33. From 33-40 it is about equal to Whites, and after age 40, Blacks have lower testosterone than Whites. My paper here offers clear evidence in the form of numerous scientific studies that Blacks indeed have higher testosterone than Whites.

Most everywhere they live in the world, Blacks are associated with high crime rates, in particular high violent crime rates. They are associated with high levels of violence in general. These elevated violence rates hold true for Blacks in the US, UK, Africa and the Caribbean. It seems odd that Black people would have coincidentally the same violence and crime-promoting environment in Africa, the US, the US and the Caribbean.

Black boys have more problems with teachers and elevated rates of delinquency, at least in the US.

In addition, in the US, UK, Africa and Caribbean, they have more sex partners than White males. It seems odd that wherever they are found, Blacks would find some sort of environment that coincidentally causes them to be more promiscuous than others.

It is not known where Blacks use drugs, including hard drugs more than Whites, or if they cause more problems in prison in terms of rule violations or violations involving force. It is also not known whether they get their parole denied more often. It is also known whether Blacks go AWOL in the service more than Whites.

However, increased delinquency, discipline problems at school, crime rates, violent crime rates and number of sex partners in Blacks suggest that these elevated behavioral variables may be related to increased testosterone since all of these are known correlates of high testosterone in men.

Anti-Semitism As an Essentially Rightwing Ideology

In this post, I will lay out why anti-Semitism is basically a rightwing philosophy, and while it may have made sense at one point (in fact, 100 years ago, it was important and essential that most Gentile businessmen were anti-Semites), it really doesn’t make sense for progressives or non-rightwingers anymore.

The Jews are much better behaved than they were 100 years ago when they were waging ethnic warfare against all non-Jews and made repeated runs of various industries in the US. At this time, anti-Semitism was essential for any American patriot. Indeed, Gentiles were so anti-Semitic back then that they repeatedly blew the whistle on Jewish attempts to use ethnic warfare to make runs on entire industries such as finance banking, consumer banking and Wall Street.

Unfortunately, Hollywood and the media succumbed to coordinated Jewish ethnic warfare-driven runs that resulted in the successful Jewish takeover of these industries. If Gentile businessmen had not been anti-Semitic, Jews would have taken over even more industries in the US. I don’t see why any Gentile businessmen should have supported this.

When an ethnic group wages ethnic warfare on your people, the other rational response is racism. Your group needs to fight back against the group attacking you, using the same tactics they use and nothing more. You either go racist or you get taken out. Which will it be. Racism can be a form of essential survival at times.

Anyway, Jewish ethnic warfare has calmed down dramatically though it still exists (see New York City’s housing city owned housing leasing). Jews have assimilated in a major way and hence they act much better. There is little need for defensive anti-Semitism anymore.

Below, I will point out how there is nothing in anti-Semitism for a progressive person. I have nothing against racism per se. If Jews deserve to be hated, then they should be hated. Personally, I despise certain ethnic groups. I have a deep and abiding hatred for Gypsies; that is, I am very racist against Gypsies. In my opinion, Gypsies simply deserve to be hated. How else should we react to a criminal race and a nation of thieves.

But it’s quite hard to make a progressive case for anti-Semitism as the major anti-Semitic case against the Jews is a rightwing argument, and anti-Semitism has always tended to be rightwing. Antisemitism has been, in a nutshell, a reaction against modernity. Jews were seen, accurately, as the carriers of modernity as mosquitoes carry viruses. But most progressive people are children of modernity and generally support the modernizing and forward looking view of life as progress.

In short, there is little if anything in anti-Semitism for progressives. The case against the Jews is largely a rightwing case that we do not support. Further, in becoming an antisemite, you associate with some of the most vile philosophies of the modern era: Genocidal antisemitism or Nazism.

Below I will go through the charges against the Jews and show why I do not find most of these arguments persuasive or compatible for progress and the Left.

Hollywood and cultural decline: I could care less that Hollywood and the Entertainment industry is full of Jews supposedly making filth and porn to supposedly corrupt the country. If you got rid of this Jews, a bunch of sleazy Gentiles will take their place.

We are all Jews now.

Promotion of anti-White racism and demonization of Whites: I could care less that Jews are very active in demonizing White people. Granted this is pretty ugly stuff, but the fact of the matter is that for every one anti-White Jew, there are probably 10 White-hating White people. And the anti-White poison has spread very badly to Hispanics, Arabs, and especially Blacks. If you are a non-White, particularly a young one, in the US, chances are very good that you are anti-White.

We are all Jews now.

Jewish role in the 1960’s cultural revolutions: I could care less that the Jews were behind feminism, the 60’s Counterculture, gay liberation, men’s liberation, trans liberation, and Identity Politics in general. I supported most of these movements at the beginning back when they were more or less sane.

All of these movements have gone completely insane now, as is to be expected, as all Identity Politics movements will go crazy and overreach like this because that’s in the DNA of Identity Politics which frankly is reactionary politics and fake nationalism with the given identity movement playing the role of “nation.” Hence most Identity Politics movements are about as crazy and often about as fascistic are your average ultranationalist.

Your ultranationalist Turk categorizes his form of reaction as “I am for the Turkish nation.” The feminist nutcase categorizes her reactionary nonsense as “I am a member of the Womyn Nation!” Honestly there is not a lot of difference between the two.

Just as ultranationalism usually leads to some form of fascism, a close look at most Identity Politics movements will notice a distinct fascistic or at least nationalist type of discourse.

The Right was not wrong when they labeled feminists Feminazis. That’s exactly what some of them are! The Christian Right now refers to Gay Identity Politics as fascism. They are not completely wrong and some of the nuttier Gay Rights types indeed look quite fascistic. Hispanic and Black Identity Politics have long appeared fascistic. See the New Black Panthers, the Brown Berets and the Aztlan nationalist nutcases.

This fascist poison is often disguised as Left politics. For instance, the Hard Left in the US has long been pushing Hispanic (really Mexican) nationalism and Black nationalism in the US to the extent of advocating splitting up the union and giving the West to the Mexican fake state and giving the Southern US to the Black fake state. This is supposedly “progressive.”

Honestly, it’s about as progressive and racist as the White nationalists who want to create their White state. The White, Black and Aztlan nationalists are really all the same. Not one is worse than any others. Anyway, all these trains left the station long ago and they don’t need Jews around to run them anymore. So if the Jews all took off tomorrow, these movements would keep steaming away.

We are all Jews now.

Jewish media control: I don’t particularly care that Jews run our media, and indeed they do. It’s pretty sleazy though. Suppose Swedes or Hungarians ran our media and every time you turned on the TV, there was some Swedish idiot eating meatballs and going on and on about how Swedes are the greatest thing since Kleenex. You could only watch so much of this until you start yelling at the TV, “Guess what? I’m not a Swede!” That’s how I feel about Jews in the media.

The media Jews use the media and entertainment industry to talk about themselves endlessly and solipsistically as Jews are nothing if not unbelievably solipsistic. Jews are an ethnic group and they are somewhat interesting, but they are 2% of the population. It makes me angry that every time I pick of Time Magazine or Jewsweek Magazine or whatever they are called, there’s some Jewish author going on and on about Jewish people. Very annoying.

I want to hear about Jews maybe 2% of the time on the media. I don’t want to have every other story being read by a Jewish newscaster or written by a Jewish writer. I don’t want to have to read about Jews and how cool they are every time I open up a magazine or turn on the TV. As I said, it’s just as annoying as if Swedes ran our media.

Jewish media pushing cultural liberalism: I could care less if media Jews use the media to push cultural liberalism, antiracism or White-hatred. I am a liberal myself, so I don’t mind folks pushing liberalism. Modern antiracism is completely bonkers and looks nothing like the Freedom Fighters. The problem is that the media is all full of Gentiles believe it or not. Many large papers were never owned by Jews and they always sounded just like the Jewish papers. The LA Times was always run by the Gentile white bread Chandler family. It might as well have been the Jew York Times because the two paper were exactly the same.

Which brings me to my point. All of these critiques against the media Jews apply in equal weight to the media Gentiles. The media Gentiles push just as much cultural Left stupidity, modern antiracist poison and White-hating idiocy as the media Gentiles. The problem with the media isn’t the Media Jews. It’s the media people in general! They’re all drinking the same Koolaid.

We are all Jews now.

Further, the media Jews, though they are as disgusting as any rich people, are actually somewhat liberal in a pro-Democratic Party way. Honestly, while rich Jews are rather lousy (look at the media Jews and tell me these people are ok), rich Gentiles are usually much worse. They are out and out reactionary kooks. So if you got rid of all the media Jews, rich Gentiles would take over and the media would be run by media Gentiles. They would be far more reactionary than the media Jews are. The whole media would sound like Fox News and Rupert Murdoch. Sure, the media Jews stink, but the media Gentiles would be far worse.

Jews as sleazy businessmen: I could care less if Jews are sleazy businessmen. Yes, Jews are sleazy businessman and are natural born white collar criminals. This has been known from time immemorial. There was a type during which Gentile businesses, particularly in the Midwest and Rust Belt, practiced a sort of honor code which kept lousy behavior to a minimum. Corruption was low. Businessmen seldom cheated each other. A man’s word and handshake was good. This was done in part by social policing as Gentile businessmen who violated the code were run out of polite society.

The problem is that at this point, the entire business class is “Jewish.” In other words, the Gentile businessmen are about as sleazy and crooked as the Jewish businessmen. “Jewish” business practices of rampant sleaze, cons, scams, ripoffs, and 100,000 different types of white collar crime and now the norm all across the US. The days of the honorable Gentile businessmen who feared the social codes and policing of his people are gone.

We are all Jews now.

Jewish support for Communism and the Left: The Jews have been associated with Communism, socialism, the Left and liberalism for over 100 years. Even the Protocols makes this accusation. Almost all anti-Semites are fanatical anti-Communists. After all, Jews are Commies, right? Communism is Jewish. The Left is Commie. Socialists are Commies. Liberals are Commies. They’re all Jews too apparently.

It is beyond me when anyone on the Left should buy into this particular anti-Semitic meme. I mean, after we like liberalism, the Left, socialism and a lot of us even like Communism. We should be deeply grateful for the role that Jews as agents of modernity played in our movements. There’s noting of us here once again.

Jews are annoying, conceited, narcissistic, solipsistic, belligerent, rude, clannish, xenophobic, on and on. Indeed, this particular unpleasant set of baggage is part of the Jewish soul. Nevertheless, there’s a lot more to Jewish people than that, and these personality attributes don’t seem to be severe enough to hate an entire group of people.

America, a Colony of Israel

Via Debka, a website run by the Mossad:

Obama authorizes air power to defend US-backed Syrian rebels
DEBKAfile August 3, 2015, 8:56 AM (IDT)

President Barack Obama has authorized using air power to defend a US-backed fighting force in Syria if it is attacked by Syrian government forces or other groups. DEBKAfile: This is the first time the US has intervened directly in the four-year old Syrian civil war. The action was authorized by the president after a group of rebels trained by the CIA in Jordan was attacked last week by the al-Qaeda affiliated Nusra Front rebels who took some of them hostage.

I can’t even begin to tell you how insane this is. In a nutshell, America has just declared war in Syria. That statement issued right there, that the US will attack any Syrian government forces that attack our precious “moderate” rebels, is an out and declaration of war on Syria. Of course the media that has absolutely no Jews in it whatsoever will tell us all about this, right? Of course not. The media will not report on this in any way whatsoever.

We should not overplay the role of US Jews in all of this mess. If there is one beef that is perfectly valid against US Jews, it is that they have subverted our sovereignty and turned this country into a colony of Israel. And yes, that is a good reason do dislike Jewish people.

What Race Is This Person

Ethnic Chinese from Pernakan, Malaysia

A Peranakan Ethnic Chinese from Singapore.

Here we have an interesting phenotype. I knew this woman was an ethnic Chinese Teochew speaker originally from Malaysia now relocated to Singapore. The weird thing is she looks part-Caucasian! She is also said to be part-Malay, that is, she has some Malay blood mixed into her Chinese. Her Chinese line came from Guangdong in the far south of China over 600 years ago. This is where the Teochew speakers came from and where Teochew is still spoken to this very day.

Since Malays are frankly Paleomongoloids (Australoid-Mongoloid transitionals), I thought perhaps her Caucasoid appearance meant that she was mostly a Paleomongoloid. That is because when you interbreed an Australoid and a Mongoloid, you can sometimes end up with a Caucasoid looking phenotype. The Ainu, the Taiwanese aborigines, and some Polynesians and Khmer are evidence of this.

However digging into it a bit more, I discovered that she is a Peranakan Chinese. The Peranakans came to Malaysia between the 1400’s and 1600’s. Many settled in Malacca State adjacent to the Straits of Malacca. The former Dutch colony of Indonesia is a short boat ride away and supposedly there were many Dutch living in Malacca at the time having moved there from Sumatra. This woman is rumored to be part-Caucasian by her family. People say that many Peranakans are part Dutch, as the Dutch bred in with many of the locals. The best theory is that this woman is mostly Chinese, part Malay and also part Dutch. There is a huge Peranakan community in Singapore.

All in all, a pretty interesting phenotype.

“Crystallized Intelligence, Fluid Intelligence and Heritability,” by Afrosapiens

As promised in my first post, I wanted to discuss the notions of crystallized intelligence, fluid intelligence and heritability to make more sense of the IQ scores that we use in our arguments. I decided to cut to the chase and expand myself more in the comments section.

Crystallized intelligence is the ability to use skills, knowledge, and experience. It does not equate to memory, but it does rely on accessing information from long-term memory. Crystallized intelligence is one’s lifetime of intellectual achievement, as demonstrated largely through one’s vocabulary and general knowledge. This improves somewhat with age, as experiences tend to expand one’s knowledge.

The terms are somewhat misleading because one is not a “crystallized” form of the other. Rather, they are believed to be separate neural and mental systems. Crystallized intelligence is indicated by a person’s depth and breadth of general knowledge, vocabulary, and the ability to reason using words and numbers. It is the product of educational and cultural experience in interaction with fluid intelligence.

Crystallized intelligence is the most visible part of intelligence; it is reflected by scholastic achievement, wisdom or understanding of one’s subjective perceived reality. It could simply be summarized as the ability to learn from teachings and life experiences and to make practical use of accumulated knowledge. On this variable, no ethnic, social or racial difference has been identified in terms of crude ability. However actual performance may be affected by different factors such as attitudes toward education, cultural views/practices and quality of teaching.

Crystallized intelligence impacts fluid intelligence by managing what a person learns from exposure to an environment or lifestyle that requires increased use of rational reasoning. Crystallized intelligence has experienced no change throughout the history of psychometric testing, and it can be thought as a relatively fixed human-specific ability comparable to our senses such as sight and taste. On the other hand, fluid intelligence has made gains in the industrialized world that mirrored the diminishing influence of religion, superstition, biased theories, stereotypes and other irrational logic systems as well as dogmatic teaching styles that promoted memorizing without understanding.

Fluid intelligence or fluid reasoning is the capacity to think logically and solve problems in novel situations independent of acquired knowledge. It is the ability to analyze novel problems and identify patterns and relationships that underpin these problems and the extrapolation of these patterns using logic. It is necessary for all logical problem solving, e.g., in scientific, mathematical, and technical problem solving. Fluid reasoning includes inductive reasoning and deductive reasoning.

Fluid intelligence is the variable on which ethnic, racial and social differences have been observed throughout the history of cognitive testing. Considering that rational thinking is by itself a partly or totally acquired skill handled by crystallized intelligence, a variable for which no group difference in crude ability has been observed, the major issue faced by attempts to measure fluid intelligence is identifying the role played by acquired knowledge in test-takers’ performances and to distinguish it from crude fluid reasoning ability.

Early childhood, when little knowledge has yet been accumulated, seems to be the most relevant period in order to understand the genetic component of fluid intelligence. At this time, cognitive function is raw, instinctive and untamed by social and environmental awareness or modulated by experience. Interestingly, it is during early childhood that heritability is at its lowest point, between-group differences are at their narrowest and Black children tend to outperform White children evolving in a very similar environment. However, heritability as well as the magnitude of ethnic, social and racial differences has been shown to increase with age.

To explain the increasing heritability of IQ with age, two different theories can result in two different conclusions:

  1. Increased age equals an increased time of exposure to a similar environment.
  2. The unknown genes that affect IQ scores reach the peak of their expression in adulthood.

The first hypothesis can be validated if we are able to prove that each supplementary year in life is one more year of experience in a given environment that is shared with a biological parent. One empirical example is the heritability of racism, very low in childhood, increases as one evolves in a similar race-conscious environment as one’s parents. Language has a similar evolution, unpredictable infantile speech and teenage slang eventually turn into similar adult language patterns with social and ethnic specificities.

Childhood dreams of becoming firefighter, astronaut, doctor or princess often vanish in a career that is more or less similar to that of parents in terms of SES and part of the Flynn effect may be attributed to the post-war era of massive intergenerational upward mobility trends observed in the industrialized world that have mandated that children deal more frequently with pressure to think rationally than their parents.

The second hypothesis can be validated if we find the involved genes and discover that they have the property of expressing themselves with more strength during adulthood. I don’t personally know any polygenic trait that has this kind of development; identical twins tend to be identical at any age except for behavior that has higher variation and needs to be proven to equalize independently of social and cultural factors as age increases.

The two hypotheses make sense in their own respective paradigms which are handled by crystallized intelligence leading people to perceive different notions of logic depending on their culture and life experience. The first proposition is linked to a logical system in which facts need direct proof in order to be considered true. The second one makes sense in a paradigm in which direct factual proof is not necessary to establish the irrefutable truth. Though neither proposition is false or illogical in a self-contradictory way, the second one would fail on most tests of fluid intelligence which are designed with the rational idea that facts must be demonstrated by the most direct evidence in order to be considered true.

A Brief Conclusion

Crystallized intelligence is our ability to make use of what we know or believe, whereas fluid intelligence controls the way we deal with the unknown. Crystallized stupidity is when one makes an error, acknowledges it as an error and willfully repeats it. Crystallized intelligence obviously varies greatly between individuals and no genetic cause of this variation must be excluded  but no difference has ever been recorded between groups.

Fluid stupidity does not exist; however everyone makes use of a particular type of logic when trying to solve a problem. How coherent this logical system is depends on the rational quality of one’s accumulated knowledge. Thus IQ tests must be interpreted in terms of rational thinking acquired via learning instead of crude intelligence.

Turkey Supports ISIS. … Now Declares “War Against ISIS”, But Instead Bombs Its Political Rival, Which Is the Most Effective Force Fighting ISIS

These attacks by Turkey are waging war on the most effective armed fore fighting ISIS. ISIS, on the other hand, was left virtually untouched. ISIS enjoys massive support from Turkey at all levels all the way down to local police forces. Most ISIS oil smuggled out of the country goes directly through Turkey with the knowledge and help of the Turkish government.

Every day dozens to hundreds of trucks pout across the Turkish border directly into Syrian territory controlled by ISIS. They are carrying arms, men and supplies to ISIS from Turkey. These convoys were photographed by a German journalist at the Turkish border last November. It is not Turkey itself that is supplying those trucks. Instead the trucks are being driven by ISIS drivers currying supplies from ISIS supply depots and men from ISIS bases across the border. The Turkish military at the border simply looks the other way. However there is some excellent evidence that Turkish intelligence has been working with ISIS for some time now.

ISIS has training camps and safehouses all over Turkey. When Turkish police battled Kurdish demonstrators protesting Turkish efforts to impede Kurdish help for city under seige by ISIS, scores of Turkish police in full uniform chanted pro-ISIS slogans. You wonder where ISIS is getting all of that wonderful equipment?

The military supplies come from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey. Saudi support for ISIS goes way back. In fact, ISIS was originally a Saudi operation, the pet project of none other than Prince Bandar. Now ISIS infests Saudi Arabia itself, engaging in regular terrorist attacks in the Kingdom. Saudi Arabia has created a Frankenstein. It’s gotten up from the table, is walking on its own, and it’s coming to kill the Saudi mad scientists who made it.

Most of this is US weaponry. That is why you so often see ISIS with with US weapons. ISIS is being continually supplied mostly with US weapons. It’s US weaponry that keeps them going. In other words, Turkey and some partners have been backing ISIS for quite some time now.

The terrorist bomb blast against an unarmed, mostly Kurdish leftist group in Suruc recently was claimed by ISIS. I am quite certain that the Turkish government was in on that attack – probably Turkish intelligence. The group is made up of Leftists and Kurds, and those are the two principal enemies of the Turkish state for a very long time now. Sunni Salafis like Al Qaeda and ISIS are not enemies of the Turkish state – in fact, they are its allies.

Soon after the bombing, the PKK (a group which has my full support) launched an excellent operation, shooting dead two policeman who it said were cooperating with ISIS. It is a fact that many Turkish policemen are ISIS supporters, and its probably true that a lot of them are working with ISIS. I don’t think the PKK killed those two cops for no reason. PKK intelligence is very good. They wouldn’t kill innocent cops. If the PKK says they were cooperating with ISIS, you can be sure that they war.

As you can see, Turkey is using this fake war against ISIS to launch its real war against the Turkish Left and the Kurds (the PKK). The war against the PKK is not only against the armed faction of the Kurds (the PKK) but is also against the peaceful aboveground component in the Kurdish political party HDP which recently won 13% of the votes in the last election, setting off alarm bells all over Turkey.

Turkey claims that this political party has links to the PKK and it says the party’s representatives in Parliament have ties to the PKK. That’s probably not true. The PKK is a military organization, and the HDP just does politics and has nothing to do with anything military if the two groups have any links at all, and there is no evidence that the HDP is the aboveground component of the PKK anyway.

But most of these groups separate their military and political arms. For instance, the PFLP and Hamas in Palestine have political wings and armed wings. The politicians really have nothing to do with the military group except perhaps telling them to start shooting or giving them the go ahead to start shooting. The Hamas political wing has nothing whatsoever to do with the armed wing’s military strategy.

That’s all done by the armed wing – 100% by the armed wing. Although in states the division between politics and the military is a lot less clear, extra-state armed groups are generally very clear that their armed and political wings have nothing to do with each other. The people in the political wing don’t carry weapons. They don’t supply or smuggle weapons. They don’t run training camps for the guerrillas. They probably don’t have much to do with safehouses for the armed groups either. They know nothing about military strategy and have no role in planning it. They probably rarely see or talk to people in the armed wing. The two groups don’t have much to do with each other.

This is why targeted the political wing of these groups is almost always a crime. Yes they are “supporters” of the armed group, but so what? Since when is “support” a crime. Their support is psychological or verbal. So what? Since when is it illegal to say, “I support Hamas”? What the Hell kind of a crime is that?

This whole charade is utterly repulsive. As you can see, NATO is backing Turkey to the hilt in its war against the Kurds, which is really a war in support of ISIS. So NATO is supporting a war against the most successful anti-ISIS fighters. That means NATO is supporting ISIS, but I say NATO has been supporting ISIS in one way or another for a long time now.

Why would NATO be so insane as to support ISIS. NATO, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar all support ISIS? How much they support them ideologically is not known. But every one of these factions wants Assad gone. Turkey, the Saudis and Qatar all want him gone because he is a Shia and they are on radical Sunni anti-Shia campaign to wipe out Shia power all over the Middle East.

In the process, hundreds of thousands of Shia have been slaughtered. All three are supporting ISIS and Al Qaeda, groups that have launched near genocidal massacres against the Shia. So it can be argued that Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar want to Holocaust the Shia Muslims of the Middle East. Of course the US, NATO and Israel are all backing this Shia Shoah to the hilt. Whenever there’s mass murder anywhere in the world, Israel’s probably not far away. The Israelis just can’t stop killing people. Mass murder is in their blood.

Turkey Supports ISIS…Now Declares “War Against ISIS”, But Instead Bombs Its Political Rival, Which Is the Most Effective Force Fighting ISIS

By Global Research

NATO member Turkey has been busted supporting ISIS.

The Guardian reported this week:

US special forces raided the compound of an Islamic State leader in eastern Syria in May, they made sure not to tell the neighbors.

The target of that raid, the first of its kind since US jets returned to the skies over Iraq last August, was an Isis official responsible for oil smuggling, named Abu Sayyaf. He was almost unheard of outside the upper echelons of the terror group, but he was well known to Turkey. From mid-2013, the Tunisian fighter had been responsible for smuggling oil from Syria’s eastern fields, which the group had by then commandeered. Black market oil quickly became the main driver of Isis revenues – and Turkish buyers were its main clients.

As a result, the oil trade between the jihadis and the Turks was held up as evidence of an alliance between the two.

***

In the wake of the raid that killed Abu Sayyaf, suspicions of an undeclared alliance have hardened. One senior western official familiar with the intelligence gathered at the slain leader’s compound said that direct dealings between Turkish officials and ranking Isis members was now “undeniable”.

“There are hundreds of flash drives and documents that were seized there,” the official told the Observer. “They are being analyzed at the moment, but the links are already so clear that they could end up having profound policy implications for the relationship between us and Ankara.”

***

However, Turkey has openly supported other jihadi groups, such as Ahrar al-Sham, which espouses much of Al-Qaida’s ideology, and Jabhat al-Nusra, which is proscribed as a terror organization by much of the US and Europe. “The distinctions they draw [with other opposition groups] are thin indeed,” said the western official. “There is no doubt at all that they militarily cooperate with both.”

***

One Isis member says the organization remains a long way from establishing a self-sustaining economy across the area of Syria and Iraq it controls. “They need the Turks. I know of a lot of cooperation and it scares me,” he said. “I don’t see how Turkey can attack the organization too hard. There are shared interests.”

While the Guardian is one of Britain’s leading newspapers, many in the alternative press have long pointed out Turkey’s support for ISIS.

And expertsKurds, and Joe Biden have accuses Turkey of enabling ISIS.

Has Turkey Changed Its Ways?

On Tuesday, Turkey proclaimed that it will now help to fight ISIS.

Don’t buy it …

Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson – former chief of staff to Colin Powell, and now distinguished adjunct professor of Government and Public Policy at William & Mary – asked yesterday:

What is [Turkish president] Erdogan’s ultimate purpose? He hates Assad. He’d love to bring him down. Is that why he’s doing this?

There’s also the Kurds …

As Time Magazine pointed out in June:

Ethnic Kurds—who on Tuesday scored their second and third significant victories over ISIS in the space of eight days—are by far the most effective force fighting ISIS in both Iraq and Syria.

And yet Turkey is trying to destroy the Kurds. Time writes:

Since [Turkey announced that it was joining the war against ISIS] it has arrested more than 1,000 people in Turkey and carried out waves of air raids in neighboring Syria and Iraq. But most of those arrests and air strikes, say Kurdish leaders, have hit Kurdish and left wing groups, not ISIS.

***

Kurds are an ethnic minority that live in parts of Syria, Iraq, Turkey and Iran. They have been persecuted for decades — from Turkey’s suppression of Kurdish identity and banning of Kurdish language to Saddam Hussein’s use of chemical weapons on Kurdish communities. Their leaders, from the numerous different parties and rebel groups that represent them, have long sought an independent Kurdish state encompassing that territory and have fought against their respective governments to try to achieve that.

***

Hoshang Waziri, a political analyst based in Erbil, says the Kurds’ recent territorial gains in Syria along Turkey’s border and their increasing political legitimacy in the eyes of the West, have made the Kurds a bigger threat to Turkey than ISIS. “The fear of the Turkish state started with the Kurdish defeat of ISIS in Tel Abyad,” says Waziri.

***

The image in the West of the Kurds as a reliable ally on the ground is terrifying for Turkey,” says Waziri. “So before it’s too late, Turkey waged its war — not against ISIS, but against the PKK.

***

Some see the war against ISIS simply as a cover for an attack on Kurdish groups. Of the more than 1,000 people Turkey has arrested in security sweeps in recent days, 80% are Kurdish, associated either with the PKK or the non-violent Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), says İbrahim Ayhan, a member of parliament for the HDP.

Ayhan says the AKP needs a state of “chaos” to persuade voters that it is the only bulwark against chaos. As of yet no new government has been formed in Turkey and if that doesn’t happen in the next few weeks, new elections will be called. By that time Ayhan fears many of the leaders of his HDP party will be in jail and some even worry the HDP will be outlawed. At the same time, Erdoğan and his AKP hope they will have shown only they can defend Turkey from internal and external threats.

The Wall Street Journal reports:

Turkey’s military activity against Islamic State does not stem from sudden realizations about threats from ISIS but appears designed to elicit international support for its fight against the Kurds.

The Kurdish Workers’ Party, known as the PKK, was locked in a bloody war with the Turkish state from the mid-1980s until 2013. The cease-fire has, for all intents and purposes, been destroyed. Turkey is battling both ISIS and the PKK under the guise of fighting terrorism. Yet Turkish attempts to conflate ISIS and the PKK–even in the wake of the suicide bombing in a Kurdish border town that killed 32 young people–effectively ask people to overlook some salient facts:

The Kurds are Islamic State’s ideological opposites. The Kurds have been fighting ISIS in Syria and Iraq for some time; in particular, the Kurdish People’s Protection Unit (YPG) in northern Syria has been among the most effective forces at repelling ISIS efforts to take control of the Syrian-Turkish border. Kurdish military resistance in Syria and, to a lesser extent, the Kurdish autonomous government in Iraq have shouldered the lion’s share of the ground conflict against Islamic State, standing their ground at high cost and with limited support from the Western coalition.

***

A declaration of a state of emergency in Turkey would give the Justice and Development Party (or AKP), which lost its parliamentary majority in June elections, more flexibility to crack down on political opponents such as the Kurdish majority People’s Democratic Party. More than 1,300 people have been detained recently under the guise of cracking down on domestic PKK and ISIS elements in Turkey.

The AKP has declared the peace process with the Kurdish separatists dead and is trying to discredit the only recognized political representatives of the Turkish left and the Kurdish population; the Kurdish People’s Democratic Party won a 13% share of the Turkish parliament in the June elections–a sign of its rising popularity not only among Kurds but also with increasingly disgruntled Turkish liberals.

***

If a governing coalition isn’t formed, early elections will be held. The AKP appears to be hoping for that–under the thinking that a majority of voters would seek to maintain the status quo in a time of uncertainty and potential civil war, and that AKP’s standing in parliament would, in turn, be strengthened.

Zero Hedge adds:

Even the most mainstream of news outlets are unable to completely obscure the fact that Turkey’s ISIS “offensive” may amount to nothing more than a smokescreen, as Erdogan launches a renewed effort to crush the PKK and nullify opposition gains won at the ballot box early last month when, for the first time in more than a decade, AKP [Erdogan’s party] lost its parliamentary majority.

Coalition building efforts since the election have gone largely nowhere, and in what amounted to a sure sign that some manner of crackdown was likely just around the corner, Erdogan warned on June 21 that “if politicians are unable to sort [it] out, then the people are the only recourse” – a nod to his right under the constitution to call new elections.

Critically, AKP doesn’t need much to push them back over the top in terms of regaining their majority in parliament. Consider the following from WSJ:

Turkey’s government—which lost its parliamentary majority last month— bills its new two-front war against Kurdish militants and Islamic State as a much-overdue reaction to terrorism. But, on the third front of domestic politics, this violence could also help President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his party regain control.

In the June 7 parliamentary elections, Mr. Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party, or AKP, lost its majority for the first time in 12 years, and has been in coalition talks since. If these negotiations fail in coming weeks, Mr. Erdogan has said he will send the country back to the polls.

A rise in nationalist feelings amid the bloodshed and an unfolding crackdown on the government’s Kurdish political foes could bolster AKP’s chances in such a new election, many analysts say.

A two-percentage point shift from the last election could restore AKP’s absolute majority, making concessions demanded by its potential coalition partners on press freedom, corruption prosecutions and foreign policy unnecessary. This could also allow Mr. Erdogan to proceed with controversial plans to turn Turkey into a presidential republic and solidify his personal power.

The last passage there is critical.

AKP needs but a two percentage point swing in order to pave the way for Erdogan’s power grab and there’s no better way to stoke a renewed sense of nationalism and turn voters away from HDP than to invent a conflict and then trot out a few causalities as proof of what can happen when Kurdish “terrorists” are emboldened by a victory at the ballot box.

Given this, one could be forgiven for casting a wary eye at the rather convenient series of events that has now culminated in Ankara going back to war with the PKK. Here’s a recap:

NATO representatives met in Brussels on Tuesday after Turkey made a rare Article 4 request which compels treaty parties to convene in the event a member state is of the opinion that its “territorial integrity, political independence or security” is being threatened.

That’s the case in Turkey, where the security situation has rapidly deteriorated over the past two weeks following a suicide bombing in Suruc (claimed by Islamic State) and the murder of two Turkish policemen in the town of Ceylanpinar (at the hands of the PKK, which claims the officers were cooperating with ISIS). Ankara responded by launching airstrikes against both Islamic State and PKK.

So, ISIS launches a suicide attack and the PKK (whose Syrian affiliate YPG is battling ISIS just across the border) retaliates by killing two Turkish policemen, an event which gives the government an excuse to tighten the screws on the Kurds with virtual impunity under the guise of stepping up its efforts against ISIS.

Better still, the ISIS red herring has allowed Ankara to effectively obtain NATO’s blessing for a brutal crackdown on its Kurdish political rivals. To wit, from Salon:

The choreography attaching to the accord authorizing Turkey’s entry into war as a combatant is, as often, so careful and predictable as to be self-evident. On Sunday Ankara announced that it had requested a meeting of NATO ambassadors to consider its new circumstance. The outcome was obvious from the first.

Jens Stoltenberg, NATO’s Norwegian secretary-general, suggested Monday that Turkey was unlikely to get “any substantial NATO military support.”

This was a straw man: Material support is not what the Erdogan government wants. In its fight against ISIS and the Kurds—against both, note—it wants “solidarity and support from our NATO allies,” as the foreign ministry in Ankara later made clear.

Legitimacy, in other words. And it got it Tuesday in Brussels, where Stoltenberg announced, “We all stand united in condemning terrorism, in solidarity with Turkey.”  See the problem? Not “united against ISIS,” but “united in condemning terrorism.”

Erdogan understood. Within hours he declared that no peace process with the Kurds is possible—and then urged parliament to strip legislators with ties to the PKK of immunity from prosecution. An Istanbul source wrote Tuesday afternoon to say that some sitting parliamentarians have already been arrested.

So there you have it – mission accomplished. Erdogan has now secured Western support for his effort to nullify an election result he did not like.

***

Consider the following from Al Jazeera:

“When AK party lost [its] absolute majority [in parliament] on June 7, while HDP won, getting over the 10 percent barrier, the results showed how people started seeing that not every Kurd is a terrorist,”  Ilya U Topper, an Istanbul-based analyst on foreign affairs and democracy for the M’Sur, a Spanish media outlet added.

He noted that HDP was able to perform so well in June’s elections because there was peace.

“Two years of peace make people forget bloodshed and give them hope. Now we are back to square one. Kurds are ‘terrorists’ again,” he said. “If elections are repeated, HDP might fall under the barrier and AK party will achieve [an] absolute majority in the elections. The big question is why the PKK accepted that game.”

And that is a very good question.

Why would the PKK, whose political affiliate had just won a major victory at the ballot box, suddenly decide that now is the time to break a fragile cease fire, likely knowing that doing so would imperil further political gains and legitimacy for HDP?

***

In the final analysis, Turkey wants Assad out of Syria and that means backing anyone and everyone who is willing to help make that happen (including ISIS) with the exception of the PKK, who Ankara is keen on crushing especially after June’s election results. So now, Turkey will use ISIS as an excuse to procure NATO support for a politically motivated rout of Kurdish “terrorists”.

The West will hope that ISIS will suffer more damage than YPG, Turkey will hope that PKK and, by extension, YPG will suffer more damage than ISIS, and everyone – Ankara, Washington, ISIS, and PKK – will hope the when the dust (and blood) finally settles, Bashar al-Assad will have met a Gaddafiesque end.

So Turkey isn’t really going after ISIS … instead, the ruling party is going after its main political threat – the Kurds – and continuing its long-term effort to overthrow Syria’s Assad.

“West Africa’s Mean IQ: Let’s Talk about the Numbers,” by Afrosapiens

Hello folks, I would like to welcome a new author to the site, Afrosapiens, formerly the commenter Anti-Hereditarian. I am very proud to have him on here. It is true that he is anti-HBD, but I think I ought to provide both viewpoints here as this is not a settled question at all in science as there is no consensus one way or the other. Really most anyone on the Left can write here, but most Lefties don’t because they consider the site toxic.

As a freshly disembarked anti-racist commenter (and now author) taking part in conversations about West Africa and her diaspora, I thought it would be interesting that we discuss the figures at the heart of the controversy: West Africa’s average IQ scores.

For us to have an objective debate, I decided to use Wicherts et al.’s literature review of studies reporting African cognitive testing scores.

All existing studies

Number of studies : 14

Countries : Ghana, Guinea, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone

Number of test-takers : 5226

Average year of the studies : 1970 (unweighted average : 1973)

Average measured IQ : 83.5 (unweighted average : 84.1)

Average actualized IQ (UK norms + Flynn effect) : 78.2 (unweighted average : 79.8)

As a whole, 14 studies involving cognitive testing have been performed on West African subjects and included a total of 5,226 persons from Ghana, Guinea, Nigeria, Senegal and Sierra Leone, 5 countries which are home to around two-thirds of West Africa’s population. The oldest of these studies dates to 1935, whereas the most recent was published in 2002. The average year of reporting was 1970 if we account for the size of the samples or 1973 unweighted.

As measured by the studies’ authors, the West African subjects had an average IQ of 83.5 or 84.1 if each study is given the same weight. When corrected for the Flynn Effect and adapted to British norms for international comparison, the scores were lowered to 78.2 or 79.8 if unweighted.

In my opinion though, correcting for the Flynn effect in an attempt to present studies dating to 1970 on average as chronologically representative of today’s mean cognitive performance of a population appears fallacious. Instead of applying a quite arbitrary corrective in order to give a current day meaning to multiple decades-old studies, I would simply conclude that studies performed since 1935 have have found an average IQ of 83.5 in 5226 West African test-takers.

Since most of these studies were realized for medical or educational purposes, only a few included subjects who were mostly healthy representatives of their respective country’s population. To make national or regional IQ estimates, the interested scholars had to make their own selections using different methods that later came to be criticized and debated. In the following, I will show and discuss the results from studies selected by Lynn & Vanhanen and Wicherts et al. who are the main partakers in the academic dispute.

Studies selected by Lynn & Vanhanen

Number of studies: 2

Countries: Ghana, Guinea

Number of test-takers: 275

Average year of the studies: 1973 (unweighted average:1958)

Average measured IQ: 78.7 (unweighted average: 72.5)

Average actualized IQ (UK norms + Flynn effect): 73.4 (unweighted : 69.35)

Average actualized IQ Lynn and Vanhanen : 76.9 (unweighted : 71.5)

Only two studies met Lynn & Vanhanen’s undisclosed selection criteria. Later research has suggested that the highest predictor of inclusion in Lynn & Vanhanen’s review was a lower IQ score.

The first study dates from 1935 and samples 50 unschooled children from Guinea who are probably dead or very old today. These children were found to have a 63 mean IQ . The second sample is from Ghana and was reported in a 1981 study as composed of 225 representative adults from Accra, Ghana who scored 82. Lynn & Vanhanen’s averaging methodology does not take the samples’ sizes into account and delivers unweighted results, on this basis the regional IQ of West Africa is 71.5.

Studies selected in Wicherts et al.

Number of studies: 4

Countries: Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone

Number of test-takers: 1,379

Average year of the studies: 1969 (unweighted average: 1972)

Average measured IQ: 83.7 (unweighted average: 85.5)

Average actualized IQ (UK norms + Flynn effect): 76.3 (unweighted average: 79.1)

Using rigorous systematic selection methods described here, Wicherts et al. used 4 studies totaling 1,379 West African subjects from Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal and Sierra Leone. 559 Senegalese school children were tested with a 77.9 average IQ in 1960; a mix 393 upper-class and lower-class Nigerian children scored 87.2 in 1972; 202 Sierra Leonese children in an experimental school had a 94.8 mean IQ in 1973; the 225 representative adults from Accra used in Lynn & Vanhanen were considered by Wicherts et al., their mean measured IQ in 1981 was 82.

Following Wicherts et al’s method of correcting for the Flynn effect, translating to UK norms and weighting the average, West Africa’s mean IQ was 76.3.

To summarize :

Weighted average measured IQ: all studies, 83.5 ; Lynn & Vanhanen 78.7; Wicherts et al. 83.7

Unweighted average measured IQ : all studies,  84.1; Lynn & Vanhanen 72.5; Wicherts et al. 85.5

Weighted average actualized IQ : all studies,  76.2; Lynn & Vanhanen 76,9; Wicherts et al. 76.3

Unweighted average actualized IQ : all studies, 78.8 ; Lynn & Vanhanen 71.5; Wicherts et al. 79.1

In my opinion, the most meaningful figure is the weighted measured average of the studies selected according to the rigorous systematic methodology of Wicherts et al. thus giving a mean IQ of 83.7 IQ for the 1,379 West Africans tested between 1960 and 1981. As I said at the beginning of the post, I protest actualization. The numbers that must be considered are those that were found relevant in the context of the study: the numbers were measured and used for a practical purpose. Giving a 2015 value to a 1935 study makes no sense at all in my opinion.

However, Lynn & Vanhanen would most likely have based their regional estimate on the unweighted average of the two samples from 1935 and 1981 totaling 275 subjects. With this method, West Africa is found with a 71.5 IQ though the test-takers were measured with a weighted average IQ of 78.7.

Using Lynn & Vanhanen’s national IQ predictions based on international standardized tests of scholastic achievement, scores from Nigeria predicted a national IQ of 89.5 in 2006 and 87.1 in 2007 (average 88.3) while scores from Ghana gave a predicted IQ of 68.8 in 2003 and 71.8 in 2007 (average 70.3). Based on these figures, the West African Average was 79.3 between 2003 and 2007. However, if we give importance to the fact that Nigeria’s total population in 2015 is 182 million, while Ghana’s is only 27 million, the weighted average predicted IQ is 86 for West Africa.

In order to remain partial with respect to the inclusion rules used by by both sides of the controversy, I chose to make my estimate with the weighted average measured IQ’s in the studies used by Lynn & Vanhanen and Wicherts & al in addition to the IQ’s predicted from scholastic achievement tests.With this methodology, the estimated mean IQ of West Africa has been 82.8 since the beginning of cognitive testing in this region.

Wicherts et al. however would have taken weighted averages corrected for the Flynn effect and changed to UK norms plus the unweighted average of Ghana and Nigeria’s performances on scholastic achievement tests resulting in a 77.8 IQ estimate for West Africa.

For you to make your own judgement on whose estimate is the most biased, take a look at the differentials shown under.

Afrosapiens : 82,8 (difference with Wicherts et al : +5 ; difference with Lynn & Vanhanen : +11,3)

Wicherts et al : 77,8 (difference with Afrosapiens : -5 ; difference with Lynn & Vanhanen : +6,3)

Lynn & Vanhanen : 71,5 (difference with Afrosapiens : -11,3 ; difference with Wicherts et al : -6,3)

To have a better understanding of the different IQ estimates and their actual meaning, my upcoming post will examine the interactions  between crystallized intelligence, fluid intelligence and the concept of heritability. But first, let’s talk about the numbers.

Dear Robert,

I realize that I took too much advantage of your tolerance, I failed to take your warnings seriously and I apologize for having surpassed the limits too many times. I know that many commenters did not benefit from your patience as much as I did. However, I believe with great humility that my contributions to the conversations are generally positive. I try to bring objective and articulate insight in the discussed topics and I do everything I can to stick to the best conduct standards in spite of all the expressed opinions that hurt my sense of morality and rationality.
If you wonder why I got near-emotional when commenting on some posts, the first thing I must say is that many mentioned my name, quoted statements of mine or were clearly derived from discussions I took part in. But that’s not all.
As you noticed it, my interest in the posts about blacks and especially West African blacks is linked to my ethnic background. I’m an Haïtian Black adopted by White Gallo-Roman Catholic parents which in France stands for White Anglo-Saxon Protestant in the USA. It means more than white, it means the native ancestral dominant elite stock, “la crème de la crème” in other words. If you want to make an analogy with the US, I don’t react here as a black person but rather as typical liberal New Englander.
The story of my life has doomed me to become the most leftist among the Leftists, not the pro-welfare kind but the pro-self empowerment kind, giving people the opportunity to do the best for themselves is what true liberalism is to me. I know where I come from and I know where I ended up, I see the contrast and I realize how much life is not only about merit.
I was born in the worst slum of Port-au-Prince and now I’m just starting a professional career at 23, I’m starting as a lawyer by September. I don’t do it for money but for self-fulfillment, I don’t need to earn money because I’m already wealthy, not by birth but by adoption and it feels totally different as I know how short I fell of living a life of slum dweller. Now I have a master’s degree and I grew up in an environment that engineered me for excellence.
Now you will ask what is my relationship to West Africa. Until I went to high school, my environment was almost 100% White native French, that’s only when I went to the elite Lycée of my city that I met West Africans who were almost the only minority alongside the Vietnamese in an otherwise still 95% White native French environment.
Acknowledging the link between Haïti, my birth country and West Africa, the region where some (a minority) of my best friends’ parents were born, I developed a deep interest in the culture, history and society of this region of the world. This interest gradually extended to the wider West African diaspora with my focus on African Americans recently reaching its peak in a context of increased racial tension in the USA.
After high school, I enjoyed a gap year to do volunteering across West Africa and Haïti, it then became an annual holiday hobby and these volunteering experiences in the 4th world are the most valuable parts of my life. In addition to that, I travel to other places as well, I’ve stayed two months in Toronto, went to Chicago, New York City, the UK, Germany, Italy and Spain for cultural trips. So I believe I have solid knowledge of different parts of the world.
You said I did quite well in keeping my cool on your blog and I can’t agree more. Scientific racism doesn’t only insult me, some of the most formidable persons I’ve met and millions more for nothing that we deserve, it is a great lie supporting a genocidal agenda and I can tell you I’m in a crusade against HBDers, race realists, hereditarians or whatever you want to call them. Even though I often feel targeted by these theories, I don’t lose my sense of objectivity and there is no truth that I avoid.
If you give me one last chance, I promise I never break any rule on the blog and keep the standards of intellectual quality I impose to myself in my comments.
Regards,
This is an edited version of the petition for reinstatement that I had to send when Robert banned me as a commenter posting under the pseudonym “Anti-Hereditarian”. Now as you can see, our relation has improved a lot, much more than my English. Robert has not only forgiven me, he has promoted me to the status of author and gave me a second reason to thank him. It’s already all said in the above letter, I’m an anti-racist liberal young black Frenchman, no one is perfect. I won’t be a very prolific author and most of my posts will deal with the controversy over race, the controversy over intelligence and the controversy over race and intelligence. I hope you will enjoy my post and have great conversations about them.

The Epidemic of Students Making False Molestation Charges against Teachers

During this incident while teaching in Watts described here where I was letting the kids out of class, I think I really tried to put a stop to this bullshit for a while. You have to understand that this was 30 years ago, and I don’t remember the incident clearly. After it became obvious that the first ones I let out were not coming back, I started denying requests to leave. This usually boils down to “I have to pee! You’re going to make me pee my pants!” Especially from girls. Some of them will start crying. Others will say what an evil teacher you are for making her pee her pants.

This day in Watts, after denying a number of requests to leave, at some point, they would just stand up and say that they were leaving, and they didn’t care if I would not let them go. I would protest, but then they would just walk to the door and go out. I think I even yelled into the hall after a couple.

I may or may not have tried to stop some of them physically from leaving the class, but that’s almost always a terrible situation that you never want to be in because then there is inevitable physical contact between teacher and student.

This either leads to some sort of a physical fight or really ugly scene, or if you succeed in pushing them away, it often leads to a molestation charge against you. Girls will say “He grabbed my breasts while he pretended to push me away. While he was pushing me away, he was rubbing my pussy.” Stuff like that. Kids file false molestation charges against teachers all the time and it’s really nightmarish.

The teacher has to go before the administration, is pulled out of classes for at least a few days, and often has to confront one or more angry parents the day after the file. I’ve known teachers who got fired over this stuff. The administration almost always sides with the kids against the teacher, especially if the administrators are Black and the teacher is White. Revenge time.

A friend of mine was teaching 5th grade and a whole class just rebelled and made for the door to try to bust out in the middle of class. My friend ran to the door and blockaded the door. If you let them out in the middle of class you end up with students wandering around unsupervised during class time, which is a big scene and the teacher usually gets into big trouble. Also there are legal issues because the kids are unsupervised.

Well he blocked the door, but he got swarmed by ~10-15 10 year old girls who were very angry. They were all over the teacher trying to overwhelm him and get out of the door. He just kept pushing them back. This went for a few minutes until the teacher won the war. The teacher shows up the next morning and the hall was full of parents who he’d never seen before who look like they wanted to kill him on the spot. My friend was like, “WTF! This is Twilight Zone.” Then this Black Vice Principal invites him into the front office and says, “We need to talk to you.” He walks in and all these Black administrators look at him suspiciously.

He goes into the Veep’s room and she shuts the door. My friend is baffled. “What the Hell is this all about?” He honestly has no idea of what was going on. The Veep says that fifteen 5th grade girls from that class all said you molested them by trying to feel their breasts.

My friend says, “That’s impossible! They don’t even have breasts! There’s nothing to feel!”

Then he points to the Black admin’s tits and says, “Now those are breasts. What those little girls have are not even called breasts. I don’t know what they are called.”

Then the teacher explains what happened and says he was just pushing them away not even thinking about where he was pushing them. He says he could have pushed some away in the breast area, but it would have been accidentally because he was just pushing and wasn’t thinking about where, and they didn’t even have breasts anyway.

I think he lost his job.

All of the accusers were Black and Hispanic girls.

My Dad also got accused of molesting by a 13 year old Black girl when as a substitute teacher he tried to break up a fight between her and another girl. He put his hand on her shoulder but she said he grabbed her breasts. The girl’s Mom was this very militant Black, head of the local NAACP, and she made a great big stinkeroo out of this mess and went after my father. I forget the conclusion but I think he was allowed to continue teaching but not at that school anymore.

I have heard of a few more cases too. The accused is always a male teacher of course. This has gotten so bad that even though I have a Teaching Credential, I am afraid to use it because of this terrifying situation. I don’t even think I want to go into a classroom these days.

Kids are really evil these days. I figure for every real teacher molestation charge, there are 5-10 false ones. We have handed these diabolical little shits a nuclear weapon and they are abusing it gleefully.

The Alliterative Death Match

The fighter yelped and yelled at the man after testing, teasing and taunting him, the fighter tackled the man and tied him tightly and tautly. Then the fighter kicked, creamed, crushed, conquered, quelled, KO’d and climactically killed the man.
