“A Guide for Minorities for Exploring Racial Differences,” by Phil

Just a concept I’ve held onto a while ago and figured now would be a good time to use it.

I can speak from experience that accepting racial differences while being a minority (U.S perspective anyway) is something that’s hard to swallow even after sometime coming to terms with the data. Sure, you have your troubles from a White perspective (basically being on the receiving end of Cultural Left Identities agendas), but if you wanted to be more engaged in HBD, you’re going to be at a disadvantage depending on your background, to put it lightly. To put it bluntly, you probably want to keep reading if you want your sanity secured.

#1. Ignorance is bliss as much as denial is delusion. Not by lack of trying in the past though, I’m not going to go through the trouble of convincing in 500 comments. I may respond to several comments at most regarding the more controversial HBD concepts, but if you want to stay comfortable in zero innate differences between races or somehow massaging the differences, then so be it. The more furious ones about it typically don’t stay long nowadays on this blog aside from Jason Y, and he’s White!

#2. Buddy System applies. Aside from some mildly pro-white HBD blogs, you’re best bet for both learning and having a relatively civil club of people to talk about stuff would be here. The owner here has already posted much on the topic of typical HBD blog behavior, and he tries hard to deviate as far as possible before hitting Denialism.

#3. Don’t redo the 4th Grade; remember what an average is. This is without a doubt the number one detail that, when unnoticed, has caused strawmen among non-sequituri in mountains of fallacies in efforts of debunking HBD. Second runner-up is to overplay the environment factor ,and the grand champ of defense mechanisms of course is just to claim racism.

#4. Keep up with the class and study. I can also tell you from experience that not everyone is going to be accurate. For example, a blogger named “Modern heretic 3000” often talks about Blacks having browridges as a low IQ development, but that’s incorrect. Even if you look it up in Erectus Walks Among Us, the measurement show Blacks have lower values of browridge prominence compared to Caucasians. What may commonly appear to be one is just an averagely smaller height in of the forehead. These types of mistakes are going to be common among those who lean towards the higher ends of White Nationalist lunacy. Other milder HBD’ers typically just stick to the basics of HBD and politics. You may come across opportunities to use “scientific racism” to your advantage.

#5. Don’t miss it “all” just for the “warts”. Believe or not, reading about tribes in Africa from actual 19th century books for information of these tribes’ capabilities was far better than reading either typical Afrocentric propaganda or typical Black-bashing. If you’re uncomfortable with what you find, use it as an opportunity to learn both the negatives and positives of your race. However don’t dive into Romanticism as tempted you may be because chances are the stats will wake you up if you don’t.

#6. Self hate is no way to live. While this could be said of any other advice I’ve given, follow this step if you can help it. Chances are there’s a good number of years ahead of you, and you’ll get sick of the routine after a day. I know I did. Also it’s a waste of your potential for to aspiring to better yourself. If you can believe and get worked up over racial flaws that may apply to you, you could have a higher chance of somehow getting around them one way or another.

These 6 steps are really the only major ones that come to mind that will get you some footing in HBD. If anyone has any question or suggestions, feel free to share.

    Aside from this blog, pumpkinperson.com is a good place for #2 as well.
    Pumpkinperson is a self-described anti-racist, and although the comments are crawling with WNs, they are leftist WNs who are not anti-NAM and are more inclined to hate Jews.

    Right and you can learn a lot about Romans (and hence white people) from Gladiator games and infanticide. You can learn a lot about Mexicans from Aztec human sacrifice. No, not really. Cultures and people change.

      Only 2 to 3 percent of black males are actually behind bars, and only 27 percent of all blacks are below the poverty line. That’s the facts for you.

    • “Right and you can learn a lot about Romans (and hence white people) from Gladiator games and infanticide. You can learn a lot about Mexicans from Aztec human sacrifice. No, not really. Cultures and people change.”

      Jason…I want you to realize how fucking stupid you’re being when I put in bold- “#5. Don’t miss it “all” just for the “warts””.

      I’ve also mentioned that Romanticism was dangerous as well as it will make you resistant to cons about a culture.

      I REALLY want to stress how idiotic you are being as legit African studying is something that hurts the morale of intellectual Black, hence the creation of Afrocentrism to begin with but that causes strife as well. I propose a source towards a balanced view in engaging in such.

      This is exactly the type of shit you would preach, but the fact that you missed all of that PROVES that you have become impulsive to criticize anything I say because you have became frustrated over your inability to prove me wrong in HBD.

      I remorsely say to you, go to hell.

      • *I remorselessly say

        “Only 2 to 3 percent of black males are actually behind bars, and only 27 percent of all blacks are below the poverty line. That’s the facts for you.”

        That doesn’t tell you how many are actually prone to violent behavior, just those who were incarcerated. It also misses my point on disproportionate behavior.

        Do you have any idea the by and large implication of 27% of ANY population being below poverty?!

        Since our world has become more secular, it’s hostile to religion. A religious black perhaps would be less likely to glamorize mother Africa’s history.

        A Christian black can feel proud of his heritage, yet also remember his ancestors were heathen savages, much as Euros were at one time. On the other hand, a secular black might be highly offended by attacks on his heritage, seeing as he doesn’t believe in the Original SIn Theory.

        Christian blacks, who are also Afro-centricists, might claim to believe in original sin, but they try to make up fantasy worlds saying while Europeans were savage back in the day, Africa was not.

        • Jason Y

          The modern world without Christianity, and much of the HBD world is secular, doesn’t like original sin, so they become more vain and proud and exxagerate their own race’s history etc… while downplaying other groups.

          Even David Duke and others who claim to be Christian practice a real shallow fake form reaming with anti-semitism. They don’t really believe in original sin, cause that conflicts with HBD thinking and study.

        • Jason Y

          And more importantly real Christianity doesn’t allow them to blame their problems on Jews, just as it doesn’t allow black nationalists to blame thier problems on whites and Jews.

        • “Since our world has become more secular, it’s hostile to religion. A religious black perhaps would be less likely to glamorize mother Africa’s history.”

          You apparently never heard of Black Israelites BS.
          2.I literally said NOT to glamorize.

          “A Christian black can feel proud of his heritage, yet also remember his ancestors were heathen savages, much as Euros were at one time. On the other hand, a secular black might be highly offended by attacks on his heritage, seeing as he doesn’t believe in the Original SIn Theory.”

          Again bringing shit out of nowhere. Exactly what do you think the Christain Black in AFRICA view their past? I’ll tell you, not as savages. If anything it hinges somewhat more on romanticism but not to the degree of Aframs aside from Black Israelites participation.

          “Christian blacks, who are also Afro-centricists, might claim to believe in original sin, but they try to make up fantasy worlds saying while Europeans were savage back in the day, Africa was not.”

          Again generalizing by a belief system distinction that doesn’t even exist as blatantly as you put it.

        • “And more importantly real Christianity doesn’t allow them to blame their problems on Jews, just as it doesn’t allow black nationalists to blame thier problems on whites and Jews.”

          Irrelevant, moving on.

          “The modern world without Christianity, and much of the HBD world is secular, doesn’t like original sin, so they become more vain and proud and exxagerate their own race’s history etc… while downplaying other groups.”

          HBd or nationalists? Believe or not, their is a difference.

          “Even David Duke and others who claim to be Christian practice a real shallow fake form reaming with anti-semitism. They don’t really believe in original sin, cause that conflicts with HBD thinking and study.”

          You’re on a ball with pulling up irrelevant BS.

          Come back when you have an actual argument and quit assing around Jason.

          OF course Iv’e heard of Rastafarianism, and it’s as dumb as the white identity stuff. I’m not speaking of wacko sects, but rather just general Protestantism or Catholicism.

          The point being so much HBD research is biased by politics, that much of it could be an expression of mere vanity on the part of the researcher. In other cases, HBD research may tell us some of the story, but it’s up for debate. However, those with a specific agenda might pull out various facts and unfairly emphasize them, again out of vanity, and to push a racial political agenda.

          For instance, a WN might pull out some random HBD stuff and say “Oh look, see it says there blacks are such and such….”

          So do you really think HBD research is more fact than say an ethical discussion of abortion or some other controversial topic? What exactly in HBD is set in stone and cannot be criticized? Note even Newtonian Physics was at one time brought down by Einstein.

        • Jason Y

          The Bible is a good example of people “pulling out stuff”.

          Some skinhead can pull out the verse that says “Jews are the Synagogue of Satan” or “You are Children of the Devil” etc…

          A black Israelite can point out verses about herbs in the Bible to say smoking weed was condoned by God, or say the Bible clearly shows (based on some verses) that Jesus was black (with woolly hair).

          What can be pulled out of HBD to promote an agenda?

        • “OF course Iv’e heard of Rastafarianism, and it’s as dumb as the white identity stuff. I’m not speaking of wacko sects, but rather just general Protestantism or Catholicism.”

          Even then you haven;t proved that how they think of them, if anything most are neutral from my observations by not identifying in the first place.

          Second, you do understand creole groups essentially disprove that outlook.

          “The point being so much HBD research is biased by politics, that much of it could be an expression of mere vanity on the part of the researcher. In other cases, HBD research may tell us some of the story, but it’s up for debate. However, those with a specific agenda might pull out various facts and unfairly emphasize them, again out of vanity, and to push a racial political agenda.”

          Except you haven;t proved bias.

          “For instance, a WN might pull out some random HBD stuff and say “Oh look, see it says there blacks are such and such….

          So do you really think HBD research is more fact than say an ethical discussion of abortion or some other controversial topic? What exactly in HBD is set in stone and cannot be criticized? Note even Newtonian Physics was at one time brought down by Einstein.”

          You do understand that due to strawmans society use as defense mechanisms, real scrutiny from others is actually biased and or limited.

          Second Those such as Jensen and Rushton consistently disprove their opponents.

          See “Racerealist’s” Blog on arguments on environment.

          “The Bible is a good example of people “pulling out stuff”.

          Some skinhead can pull out the verse that says “Jews are the Synagogue of Satan” or “You are Children of the Devil” etc…

          A black Israelite can point out verses about herbs in the Bible to say smoking weed was condoned by God, or say the Bible clearly shows (based on some verses) that Jesus was black (with woolly hair).

          What can be pulled out of HBD to promote an agenda?”

          Just because it’s misused doesn’t debunk it. You floating the possibility alone doesn’t give you any actual leverage against it as you have verified zilch.

        Use Block quotes while responding to Jason, Phil. Sounds very odd to read your fine responses to Jason’s arguments.
