Paranoia, Aggression, Victimhood, and Assimilation: The Dilemma of the Jews

If you want to find out if someone is an anti-Semite, the last person you should ask is a Jew. This is because Jews see probably 10X more antisemites than actually exist. In other words, they’re paranoid.

One wonders why one would want to think that people who like you actually hate you or go about worrying all the time that many people in your day to day life surreptitiously hate you. If you go to a therapist with symptoms like that, you get diagnosed with a mental disorder. It’s called paranoia. When it gets very bad, it becomes Paranoid Personality Disorder and it gets even worse in a lot of psychoses, especially Paranoid Schizophrenia, Manic Psychosis, and Delusional Disorder.

If paranoia is a mental illness, does that mean that most Jews are nuts? Maybe. I’d much rather call Jews crazy than evil. Besides, it’s a lot more accurate.

But one wonders why the need for the paranoia? It’s simple. The Jews are a tribe, a human tribe. Judaism and Jewishness is simple a manifestation of human ethnocentrism found in every tribe. All tribes are paranoid about all the other tribes and have an extremely elevated view of themselves that implies that they are either the best people on Earth, the only people on Earth, or the first people on Earth. Paranoia tends to go hand in hand with grandiosity. After all, if you are a measly nothing of a man, why would all of these powerful entities be plotting against you all the time. The only way you could have all these people out to get you is if you were pretty damned important!

People with low self-esteem are not usually paranoid. They assume people don’t like them, often correctly. At any rate “people don’t like me” is an anxiety process related to low self-self esteem, anxiety, guilt and high inhibition. The classic process is Social Phobia. Social phobics often feel that people don’t like them because they are inferior. But that’s not paranoia!

Paranoids, instead, go far beyond the notion that people don’t like them. It’s so much worse than that. Paranoids believe that the people who don’t like you are actual enemies and they are plotting against you! And it’s associated with high self-esteem, not low self-esteem, and low levels of anxiety as opposed to high levels. Instead of anxiety and depression, the paranoid feels grandiosity and anger.

Now here we tie into the Jews.

Look a the description I just wrote of how paranoids act and feel and tell me that doesn’t sound exactly like some of the negative stereotypes of Jews.

Why be paranoid?

The Jews are paranoid because paranoia is the only thing that keeps them going. In the Middle Ages, they actually built some of those ghettos themselves in order to keep their people away from the Gentiles. In 1800, a proper Orthodox Jew would not only not dine with a Gentile. He would not even take tea with one! The Yemeni Jews are like this to this very day.

For centuries in the ghetto, the rabbis preached how the Gentiles hated them and how the Jews had to keep away from the Gentiles. In Medieval Spain, if a Jewish woman had sex with a Gentile, her community would punish her by cutting off her nose!

The Jews are remarkably inbred. They have existed for 2,000 years in the Diaspora and they are still remarkably pure. A good way to keep your tribe pure is to preach that all of the outsiders are evil people who hate you. Of course you don’t want to mingle with them, much less have sex with them.

So the Jews actually owe their very existence to centuries of paranoia along with all the attendant emotions that go along with it – grandiosity towards themselves, anger and hostility (not anxiety) towards non- Jews and basically aggressive, belligerent, chip on the shoulder mindset, which clinical paranoids also have.

All paranoids are victims. Not only that, but they are innocent victims. Innocent victimhood is a necessary state for the paranoia to develop in the first place. The Jews also are perennial victims. They are supposedly victims of centuries of oppression everywhere they  have gone and the future only holds the same if not worse. And of course the Jews are always innocent. They got thrown out of all those countries through no fault of their own. They dindu nuffin. Those Gentiles were just being irrational or insane and downright evil. Pure evil. Pure evil for no reason at all, the worst sort of evil of them all.

Hence it follows that Jews have a need to be victims. Hang around Jews long enough and it will become apparent that they actually desire and cherish their victimhood. In fact, in my opinion, victimhood is the most precious thing a Jew has. One thing you don’t do is take away a Jews sense of victimhood. It seems they will almost kill to keep that.

So what happens if you take away the paranoia and sense of victimhood from the Jews? Simple. The Jews go extinct. The only reason they persisted all this time was due to their hatred for non-Jews. The day the Jews stop hating non-Jews and seeing themselves as victims of all-encompassing anti-Semitism is the day the Jews start going out. Because once that happens, the Jews will have no reason not to assimilate and marry non-Jews.

And this is the Catch-22 of Jewish assimilation. And in fact some of these very arguments have been used by Jews themselves in the centuries-old debate about assimilation.

Game/PUA: The Art of Seduction: Why Women are 10th Dimensional Chess

It’s not true that getting women is all about looks. I have known men who were the handsomest men in town and they couldn’t get laid with God’s help. They often had anxiety disorders or they were extremely shy.

There is an art to this sort of thing. Just talking to her is one thing. Then sparking her interest enough so you can get her number somehow. Then asking her out or even better arranging some “innocent” fake thing like a study date. Turning friendships into sexual relationships – very hard but it can be done.

Then you have to call her a few times before the date and if you call her too much, she bails. If you call her too little, she cancels too. You have to call her just often enough. Then you have to talk right on the phone while you are talking to her and you can mess this up in a million ways too, often by saying just one thing.

You have to learn how to put out the brushfires that inevitably develop even early on before the first date. There is a way to do this, and if you do it wrong, she blows up and leaves. I hear about guys having dates or arranging to meet a woman all the time, and the woman cancels before it even happens.

Then you meet and you have to play your cards right here too. You can seriously turn her off very easily.

If she suddenly suggests something sexual like, “Let’s grab a blanket and go to the beach,” you have to jump on that right away because half the time, she will think better of it and say, “No, let’s not, I have a husband.” When she suggests sex, it will almost always be in some strange code where she doesn’t come out and say it. Instead she says something innocent that actually has a sexual proposition embedded in it. It’s up to you to read the code right and jump on it at exactly the right time.

If you actually have a real date, there are a million things that can go wrong here. If you are nervous or autistically inept and awkward, you can ruin the whole date very easily. You have to figure out how to charm her. There are a thousand tricks. It’s not so easy to charm a woman. There are men who are very good at it, but they worked at it for a long time.

Innocently: “Do you mind if I put my hand in your pocket there?” Shy like a little boy. “Oh no, go right ahead!”

Innocently, like a little boy: “Could you get my keys out of my pocket please?” Winking.

Even if you start making out, she tries to stop it halfway through a lot of the time because she has second thoughts. Then you have to figure out what to do next.

You have to figure out when she’s horny and wants to go for it, and then you have to make your move, and you better make it fast. If you don’t go for it, she gets pissed and withdraws the offer (which was completely nonverbal anyway) and contemptuously thinks you’re a pussy because you didn’t go for it. Only rarely does she drag you off to the bed (though it’s happened to me). If you don’t bust a move, you simply don’t get laid, period. If you never bust a move, you die a virgin.

Getting her into bed requires a million and one tricks in your Felix bag of tricks. Seduction is a scam, a game, a con. It’s trickery. You’re basically tricking and fooling her into bed because half the time, she doesn’t want to do it, and she’s always trying to weasel out of the dick. There are a thousand tricks here too.

“You don’t want to fuck? Fine. I’ll go sleep on the couch. See you in the morning. Bye.” Works great. Pretty soon she’s asking you to come to the bed.

Give her orders. “Get on that bed right now!” She scurries over like a scared little obedient girl. Now laugh.

And then when you are in bed, of course you have to perform. You can’t be impotent, and a lot of young men are if they are anxious. Coming too fast is not real great. She might ridicule you if you come real fast. It’s happened to me. “Oh poor baby, you came too fast.” Pretty humiliating. I suppose there are a hundred ways to screw up in bed too.

You think women fall in love with guys for no reason? Forget it. They fall in love because Chad love scammers know how to cast actual magic spells on women to make the women fall in love with them. Then comes the relationship. It must be endlessly gamed every step of the way to keep it on the up and up.

Even if you are Chad, if she thinks you’re a pussy or she disrespects your masculinity, you will have problems, and she will cuck you just for being a pussy. Maybe even right in front of  your face, just to challenge and humiliate you even further. Of course she’s trying  to get murdered. Women try to get murdered all the time. It’s a wonder more of them don’t get killed.

Equality is not possible between men and women. Someone’s got to wear the pants. Either you dominate her or she dominates you. Which is it going to be? So you dominate her. And there’s a very fine art to that between correct domination and abuse, and so many things can go wrong there too.  First of all, you have to learn to be dominant which doesn’t come natural to many men at all. You have to dominate her just enough to keep her where she wants to be yet still be kind and loving enough to give her the affection she wants and the relationship deserves.

Brush fires and even forest fires are going off all the time because she’s a woman, and that’s what they do. You have to figure out how to put out these fires and keep it on the up and up. It’s very hard to figure out how to put out these fires because they are about all sorts of different things and there are different ways to put out different kinds of fires about different things. What worked for one fire might not work for another. If you don’t put out the fires, the relationship can blow up, go cold, fester and smolder, or even break at the seams.

The fights can be wild and painful. You tell her your most sensitive Achilles Heel issues that you will almost kill over, and the first fight, she whips them out and turns them into nuclear weapons and fires them at you. Being attacked by a woman viciously and contemptuously can be devastating if you are not prepared. Over time, you have to learn to be prepared to deal with a furious woman using every evil trick in her book to hit you where it hurts worst of all. There’s a right and wrong way to respond to attacks, and you can blow up the response in countless ways.

Now to get really insane, try doing what Chad does – running two or more women at once. He’s running three different women, none of them know about each other. This is the craziest game of them all. It’s almost a 40 hour a week job, women are screaming at him all the time, the phone’s always ringing, he’s making and breaking dates all the  time, people are threatening to kick his ass, women are having tearful meltdowns or threatening to kill him, two women start fighting over him, and most importantly, he’s lying to everyone all the time.

Even one woman is headache enough, but if Chad runs 2-3 at once he has double or triple the headaches. It’s a crazy way to live, but some Chads like it because they get a lot of sex, and they like to live dangerously. And the only thing better than having one chick crazy about you is having two chicks nuts about you.

Maintaining the relationship, keeping it going over months to even a year or more through probable breakups full of wild drama and chaos, keeping the sex going (not so easy as you think), then when you get into multi-year relationships, you have something really heavy, but those can be blown up too pretty easily. A deep relationship like this must be cultivated in its own particular way, and it’s not an easy thing to do.

I’m not even going to get into marriage here.

It’s not that easy being Chad or Chadlite or even a regular Normie. Women are an unholy pain the ass, and relationships with women are full of regular drama and chaos for no particular reason. Every Chad I have known practically had a BA in Seduction and Gaming Relationships with Women. It’s not just his looks. You can have male model good looks, but it’s worth fuck all if you’re a mouse. Even the Chads and Chadlites I have known have told me that the hardest thing they ever did in life was getting women and running relationships with women. The best men of all not only have looks but they have almost a PhD in Game and running relationships.

The Dangers of Fisting

Here.

I never thought this was a good idea. Gay men have been doing it forever, but it’s only recently that women started doing it too, at least according to the porn I’ve been watching.

Fully 37% of gay men have engaged in fisting.

What is it? Well, the insertive partner takes his fist and shoves up the receptive partners ass. Shoved is not quite right as they go tend to go very slowly with lots of lube.

I almost never look at gay porn, either photos or videos, but of course I’ve run across a tiny bit of it. It’s not my thing, and I find it rather disgusting.

I’ve seen a few gay porn stills of this. I have to admit that it looks pretty weird to see a man with another guy’s fist shoved all the way up his ass.

Here are some of the problems that can result from fisting:

Eleven patients with injuries of the rectum and sigmoid colon secondary to the insertion of the clenched fist are presented. Six patients sustained mucosal lacerations of the rectum and four patients had rectosigmoid perforations requiring laparotomy. One patient sustained a severe sphincter laceration producing complete anal incontinence. The management of these conditions is discussed.

I don’t know much about the mucosal lacerations of the rectum. I’m not sure if that can happen with anal sex. Usually with anal sex you get these little tears called fissures that tend to heal on their own after a bit. Laceration sounds pretty hardcore.

The other four are much more serious. These are rectosigmoid perforations, in other words, a perforated rectum. That’s a very bad thing and it almost never happens from just anal sex. I’m not sure what a laparotomy is.

The last man had a severe sphincter laceration which produced complete anal incontinence. You can have surgeries after this happens to try to fix the problem, but they don’t necessarily work. There are indeed some older gay men who have anal incontinence after years to decades of all sorts of anal sex. These men do indeed have to wear something like a diaper to deal with this issue. It’s not a myth.

I doubt if it’s the typical outcome though. That sounds like a nightmare. Not being able to hold your shit.

I keep seeing the word laceration used here. I’ve never seen that word used in conjunction with an injury from anal sex. That must have something to with the fact of a huge fist being up there instead of a small penis.

I can’t believe 37% of gay men have had a fist shoved up their ass. That sounds nuts. Sometimes I wonder if there is something wrong with gay men, other than simply being gay of course. They seem so self-destructive.

How Many Blacks Are Part of Ghetto Culture?

Jm8: It could perhaps be, in part, that Black (and South Asian) children’s scores rise as they get older and thus become more assimilated into mainstream British culture. In the US, many Blacks never really or fully assimilate into the mainstream culture, but remain ghettoized/maintain a ghettoized culture, culturally if not geographically/physically.

~50% of Blacks Seem To Be Part of Ghetto / Rap Culture

Yep. A lot of Blacks are part of ghetto / rap type culture. Looking at the ones on Hi5, I would say that 50% of the Black women of all ages on there are caught up in ghetto/rap culture.

And some of the ones who seem like they are not are actually deep into it. A young woman and I clicked like on each other. She gave me her #. I called it and some ghetto guy answered and gave her the phone. She lived in Inglewatts, I mean Inglewood. She was a whore. She wanted to charge me $100 to fuck her.

Her photo was the most charming, sweet, darling, little Miss Princess photo with those Snapchat dog ears on it. I could have sworn she was completely outside of that bullshit culture. Instead she was dead in the middle of it.

Ghetto Culture Is Not the Only Black Culture

Alpha said that ghetto culture is not the only Black culture. The thing is that’s the only Black culture that I know of.

But then I met a woman from the South on Hi5, a Black woman. She was from a small town in North Carolina. She had a lot of photos. Every person in her photos was Black. It’s hard to tell by photos, but everyone in the photos seemed like a pretty good person.

But this was not ghetto culture. I’m not sure what it was, but it was definitely a Black culture. I am not sure I would want to be a part of it because everyone was Black. It had a heavy dose of Protestant religion. The woman was a very good person, happy and optimistic. I’ve never really seen a Black culture like this, but I have heard that there is a culture like this in small towns in the South. It’s actually not a bad culture at all, and it’s Black as night.

One wonders if the Black professionals who went to Obama’s church (Reverend Wright) in Chicago would be part of a Black culture? Do they really act that much different from White people though? Do they really have a separate culture? I can see how it would be different in some respects, but not greatly.

Are the wealthy Blacks in Baldwin Hills, Ladera Heights, etc. part of a Black culture? Do they mostly associate with other Blacks? I think some of them might be part of a Black culture.

I met a woman on a dating site recently. She was a Black businesswoman / singer / entertainer from LA who had some money. She seemed to be part of a Black culture. She was very involved with Tina Turner going back decades and apparently used to tour with her, including to Europe. It seemed like most of the people around Turner were Black. I suppose you could call that a Black culture. It was not a lot different from White culture, but it was different in some ways.

If Black people mostly hang out with other Blacks, is that a Black culture de facto?

The US Left: An Autopsy

James Schipper: Dear Robert

There is a real left in the US, the Politically Correct Left. Their darlings are the sexually abnormal, except pedophiles of course, colored people, and immigrants. To promote equality at home and to oppose imperialism abroad, which is traditional Leftism, is not a priority for today’s Leftism. Instead, we have the pursuit of diversity at home and the promotion of human rights abroad.

However, the pursuit of diversity is perfectly compatible with extreme inequality. If a CEO makes 200 times more than the companies lowest paid employee, but half of the CEO’s are female and 1/3 are non-white, then that is fine.

As to the promotion of human rights abroad, it is the modern equivalent of the White man’s burden. In practice, it means that the West will tell the rest what to do.

This is probably about right. The Cultural Left is the Left in the US. My previous post discussed Daily Kos, ground central for the left wing of the Democratic Party.

I talked about how awful they were on Venezuela, but they are just as bad on Syria and Russia. Sure, you can’t discuss the Israeli conflict, but you can sure support Israeli foreign policy in Syria.

I am quite sure that Iran is hated too.

Kos is somewhat sane on North Korea – they think that Trump threatening to attack a nuclear armed state is the height of insanity. Of course they will use their nuclear weapons if attacked. What do you expect them to do?

Well, one thing is for sure, and that’s that the Daily Kos and liberal Democrats in general support the Cultural Left to the hilt. That’s one thing they are quite Left on – culture. There is no species of nonheterosexual orientation or nonbinary gender that they will not shout the praises of to the skies.

And of course there is the continuous cheerleading for the dubious Black Lives Matter group and the Left’s favorite pets, the illegal immigrants.

There is also a lot of promotion of radical or gender feminism.

You don’t see a lot of White bashing or male bashing. Some Black, Brown, and feminist diarists write that sort of thing, but those diaries are not very popular, and the audience is mostly female or Black and Brown liberals. The male Kossacks generally stay off the hardline feminist diaries, and White Kossacks are not seen a lot on the radical Black and Brown diaries. After a while there, I decided that White liberal men were not as cucked as everyone says they are. They didn’t seem very interested in the male-bashing or White-bashing.

There even used to be some liberals on Daily Kos who were very much against illegal immigration. They tended to get shouted down, but they did have a voice. I believe recently Kos made a new policy that opposing illegal immigration on the site would result in a ban. It’s sad.

More liberals or more precisely those on the Left wing of US liberalism seem to have increasingly had it up to here with the Israelis. Even a number of liberal US Jews have finally had it with the Jewish state. Israel’s behavior gets more outrageous, belligerent and murderous by the day, and I would assume that as a liberal, even a Jewish liberal, it gets harder and harder to see these radical ethnic nationalists (the Jewish equivalent of Amrenners or Stormfronters) behave as violently and viciously as they do.

Syria is so much of a tougher sell, as the US Left and US liberalism has been doubling down on overthrowing Assad and even supporting Al Qaeda and ISIS in the process from Day One. However, even on Daily Kos, there are a few commenters who go against the Official Narrative on Syria. Maybe 20% of the total, but they are articulate and quite loud.

Even much of the actual US Left has been badly split on Syria. Alternet has been supporting overthrowing Assad, as has Pacifica radio and some authors on Counterpunch. On Alternet and Counterpunch, the readers are much more pro-Syria than the writers. Pacifica has faced a big backlash for its pro-intervention coverage. It’s more accurate to say that support for Assad’s regime has badly split the US Left than to say they have taken any coherent stand on the matter.

What Is the Meaning of Blacks Closing the Achievement Gap in the UK?

Tulio: So then the race IQ gap is environmental then?

Well, I don’t know. Chuck at The Inductivist now says it is, and he is fighting with a bunch of hereditarians about that. And Chuck was originally a hereditarian.

The achievement gap may well be environmental if the British Blacks closed it. They say the achievement tests are a proxy for IQ, but they are not a perfect proxy, maybe .7 correlation. It might be interesting to see recent IQ tests.

in the case of British Black children, yes, their IQ’s beat White children at age 5 incredibly enough, but they crash back down to 86 when those children reach adulthood. A similar thing is happening in the US, where Black children now have an IQ of 90.5, but their IQ crashes back down to ~85 by adulthood.

There are a lot of theories about why this is happening, but one of the most depressing is that environmental effects are most prominent in youth, and that in adulthood, the genes start to kick in, and environmental effects fade into the background.

If we could close the achievement gap in the US like they did in the UK, it would be an awesome thing indeed. It would be one of the greatest achievements for Black Americans since the First or Second Liberations (Civil War and Civil Rights Act).

However, Black children in both the UK and the US are getting a lot smarter, and both cohorts are significantly closing the B-W IQ gap at least in childhood. I think smarter Black kids is a good thing in a lot of ways. You can sit back and count the ways that this is a good thing, but I think we both agree that it’s a huge positive.

The Left Wing of the Democratic Party – Where Progressive Policy Goes to Die

Indra Varuna: Hey Robert! Off topic but you think of Vox? (the progressive website and not Voxday)

It’s look like a Democrat mouthpiece, they published a article against Venezuela and another that Israel shouldn’t be boycotted, but they’re progressive in almost everything.

I don’t know Vox very well. I think they are probably OK, but I don’t read them that much. I think the last I read there was a debate on the B-W IQ gap between Ezra Klein and Sam Harris. Pretty much a waste of a two-hour podcast. They’re probably pretty awful on Cultural Left stuff.

Vox is really just the bullshit Democratic Party, in particular the left wing of the Democratic Party, which is still shit in my opinion.

Go to Daily Kos sometime. Sign up for an account. I have a lifetime ban on Daily Kos for “anti-Semitism.” Really I just attacked the Israeli cancer that is metastasizing in Palestine.

Some Kossack wrote an article attacking Syria from a BS POV and I asked, “What’s the capital of your country, Tel Aviv?” I basically said, “You are not an American. You are just another dual loyalty / agent of a foreign power / dual citizen type.” Well the Kossacks flipped out, called me a ‘virulent anti-Semite” and permabanned me.

If you want to understand the cowardly and craven left wing of this pathetic party, go to Daily Kos and read around.

In a nutshell:

DK is split on Israel, but most Kossacks love Israel. However, a minority of Kossacks have had it up to here with the Israeli infestation and attack them ferociously. Kos put in a directive that all debate on the subject of Israel is banned. I suppose that is where it is now. Not catastrophic but not real great either.

The real problem is that Daily Kos is really (((Daily Kos))). Like most other entities in American life, Daily Kos is Jewed to the hilt. 60% of the Democratic Party’s money is Jewish money, and most of it comes with pro-Israeli strings attached.

You don’t read much about Venezuela on Daily Kos, but what you do read is pretty bad. I read one article that was pro-Venezuela, but the commenters were all bitterly against the piece, and one said it should be flagged and banned as opposing some Kos policy. In other words, if you support Venezuela, you are violating Daily Kos policy.

Keep in mind that even Sanders was horrific on Venezuela. He called Chavez a “Communist dictator.”

The truth is that the Left is the US is pretty much crap. The actual Left in the US is usually pretty OK, but the majority of the Left in the US are these maggots called “liberal Democrats” who are distinguished by the fact that there is almost nothing progressive about them.

The US Democratic Party has long been pretty good on domestic policy, but they have always been horrifically reactionary on foreign policy. Even my late father, a proud ADA Democrat, was a Cold War Democrat who was horribly reactionary on foreign policy. Also, since he had been in the Marines, he believed that the US military could absolutely do no wrong, and he supported the US military to the hilt no matter who they were bombing, shooting, killing and slaughtering at the moment. It didn’t matter. They were always right. You could not oppose the US military in his presence. He would almost threaten to hit you. It was that bad.

Bottom line is the US is pretty hopeless. There’s no real Left in the country, and the Democratic Party is pathetically reactionary on foreign policy. The very idea that liberal Democrats are are even leftwing in any way is pretty risible.

The B-W IQ Gap: The State of the Argument

Alpha Unit: Facts about behavior stand on their own. But it’s perfectly okay to question someone’s assertions about why people behave a certain way.

Oh of course! I agree with that 100%. Actually the B-W IQ gap controversy has shifted over to that.

In the journals, the people on the Left surrendered a while back on the tests not measuring intelligence or being culturally biased. They now agree that the tests are real and that there are intelligence gaps between races.

The argument now has shifted over to what’s causing them.

  • The Left says it’s environment
  • The Right says it’s genes
  • Others say it’s both

I regard all three positions as completely valid hypotheses and I do not think any of these positions is a racist position.

It’s hard to say if there’s any consensus at all. A statement authored by Linda Gottfriedson and signed by 100 intelligence researchers in the New York Times in 1996 said the consensus was that they were not sure what was causing the differences, but the trend was for researchers saying that both genes and environment were involved.

To me, this is a much more productive discussion.

Unfortunately, in the popular press and mind, the arguments for the tests not being accurate or being culturally biased are still bandied about although they were abandoned in the journals a long time.

In other words, the Left in the press and in the individual minds of the Left continue to promote ideas that are so far to the Left that they’ve even been abandoned by the far Left in the journals.

What is bizarre is that things that are now taken for granted even on the far Left in the journals, such as:

  • The tests measure actual intelligence
  • The tests are not culturally biased
  • There is an actual B-W intelligence gap between the races

will get you called racist, fired or your career destroyed if you say them in public because the public is 20 years behind the journals.

In other words, you will get called racist, be fired or get your career destroyed for taking positions that are regarded as scientific fact even by the farthest Left intelligence scholars. That’s just bizarre and not only that, it’s totally pathetic.

Blacks Close the Achievement Gap in the UK

Ranting Patriarch: Where are you getting the idea that the black HS achievement gap is closed in Britain? That is a place where just being accused of racism lands you permanently on a police watch-list. You better believe they are cooking the books on black test scores, it could be criminally prosecuted to reflect / demonstrate / point-out any disparity.

Except that those achievement test scores along with IQ test studies have been showing the typical gaps in the UK forever now and no one has gone to jail for reporting the facts. Schools have been dutifully reporting on this gap year in and year out and it become a regular topic of discussion over there.

That’s a well established fact for a few years now and there’s been a lively debate on this all over the HBDsphere.

Check out Chuck at The Inductivist’s blog. He held that the B-W gap was genetic until the British scores came out. Then he changed completely and said it was no longer completely genetic because he said there was no reason for the British results other than environment. The hereditarians said that the British scores were anomalous and that they hardly contradicted countless studies showing a gap.

The achievement tests could be seen as proxies for IQ test results. I have not seen any IQ test results out of the UK that show a closing of the gap. However, one could argue that IQ tests are irrelevant and we should just go with achievement test results because the latter have shown to predict occupational success very well.

By the way, British children have even substantially closed the IQ gap by .4 SD.

And the youngest British Black children are even beating British Whites:

                 IQ at age 5

British Whites   100

British Blacks   106

Isn’t that amazing? However, upon hearing this, my mother said, “Ok, they’re smarter, but are they committing any less crime?” The sad answer is that in some ways, yes British Blacks are just as smart as British Whites right now, but the Blacks are still committing quite a bit of crime. Whether the rate went down with the achievement rise is not known. I suppose a cynic might say, “Great. We just a whole group of smarter criminals!”

Nevertheless, in the US, Black-White crime differentials are mediated by IQ. For instance, holding IQ constant at 113, Blacks have the exact same crime rate as Whites. One wonders why this is. If the crime tendency is genetic:

  • Do these brighter high normal Blacks have less genetic loading for criminogeneticity?
  • Or
  • Do they have the exact same loading except that once IQ gets high enough, it “overwhelms” criminogenic tendencies with various inhibitory, etc. factors that “ride along” remora-like with increased intelligence?

I favor the latter explanation. I honestly think that with increased Black intelligence, a lot of the Black problems discussed in the previous posts would lesson. Increasing intelligence tends to fix all sorts of problems, especially the ones discussed in that post.

One could argue that rising Black IQ would be paralleled by rising White IQ, and now you have an arms race that ends up with the same gap. As the saying goes, “If there’s a tiger chasing me, I don’t have to outrun the tiger. I just have to outrun you.”

On the other hand, even if a gap remained, a smarter Black cohort here and across the globe should ameliorate a lot of Black issues. I think that might especially be true in Africa. If we could raise African IQ by 1 SD, I think they would be able to deal with their issues so much better, and the continent would not be as much of a clusterfuck as it is now. 70 IQ Black Africa looks like a runaway train racing into a dark tunnel to a deadly crash ahead where the light fades out.
