Liberal Race Realism has been described as “a dash of race realism, positive white racial identity, the leftist view of American history, anti-racism, and a base of liberalism.” The term was coined by Hunter Wallace, a White nationalist. Although the name was created by a WN, most LRR’s are indifferent to hostile towards White nationalism, which they regard as virulent racism of the worst kind.
Most LRR’s, while sympathetic to HBD, are often repelled by it due to the blatant racism and its conservative/reactionary (particularly Libertarian) bent.
We remain liberals. We see ourselves as nonracists or even possibly antiracists (probably more nonracists), and we are repelled by what we see as outright racism. We believe that people should not practice animus or discrimination towards others on the basis of their race. Further, we are liberals to socialists/Communists, so we are repelled by rightwing ideology in general, which further alienates us from most of the HBD crowd. One thing we have in common is that we are social liberals/socialists/communists on economics, and we support much of the rest of the Left project absent the Identity Politics/PC/Cultural Marxist/Critical Race Theory insanity. We are as hostile to the PC crowd as we are to the Right.
The core principle is that we accept that there are some differences between the races particularity in regard to intelligence and behavior. LRR is agnostic about whether these differences are due to environment, genetics or both, thought some LRR’s may see them as primarily one of the three. The main point is that the intelligence and behavioral differences in the races have a serious sociological and political impact on societies and nation-states, hence they are important at both the micro (individual) and macro (national to global) level.
We simply see race realism as the truth. And at some point, everyone on the political spectrum needs to accept the truth. We are trying to fashion some sort of a liberal/Left response to the facts of race realism, but it has generally been a very hard sell. LRR’s are generally despised as racists or reactionaries/fascists on the Left, and the Right isn’t very nice to us either. We are pretty much hated by everyone. It’s a lonely place to be.
