In this politically correct world we live in, our educational system has been compromised by cultural Marxist ideologies that try to convince us that what is traditional is wrong and regressive, and what we can see with our very eyes and confirm with our senses, does not actually exist.
One of these delusional ideas is that race does not exist. Of course, this is a play on words – every species on Earth has a subspecies, and “race” is simply the word used to describe a subspecies of the human species. But anti-racists, who think even acknowledging the existence of race is wrong, have to believe that somehow human beings must have bypassed evolution and are exempt from the natural order; thus, having no subspecies at all and were all created equally. But they must know this is absolute nonsense, so why do they push it? Some may have good intentions, I assume, believing that denying race will somehow make the world safer a place; avoiding genocide and such,; but denying race is not needed in order to do so. In fact, without racial categories, how can we even prevent genocide? Unless we know that there are unique groups in existence that have the right to be preserved, how would we know who is under attack? The fact of the matter is we can still acknowledge our differences and be treated the same under the law – where true equality can only exist, since equality in nature does not. And we don’t need doomsday narratives which appeal to emotion to scare us away from the truth to make the world a better place.
Sadly, students across the West today are being conditioned to believe that race doesn’t exist, and are taught to parrot platitudes and other emotional rhetoric when confronted about the existence of it. Some like to play semantics and use words like “populations” or “ethnicity” in order to avoid using the term race, but little do they realize they are basically saying the same thing.
But why is race important anyway? Well, many have different reasons as to why it is important to them; for me, it’s about exposing fallacies and uprooting any ideologies that deny what we know is true. It is simply wrong to deny the reality of race just to placate to people unable to accept it or to push some sort of political agenda; especially when, I believe, denying race causes more problems than acknowledging its existence.
Maybe those who deny it believe they can end all racial tensions and create a happy utopia, but this would be impossible, and it would be based on a lie; being that it is against nature. Furthermore, you cannot end racial tensions by simply pretending race doesn’t exist; you can’t just wish it away because you don’t like it – mature adults examine a situation and discuss how it can be solved together, not hide under the sheets until the monsters go away. In my opinion, the only way to truly end racial tensions is to promote equality under the law while allowing people to have their basic rights of freedom of association and disassociation…but that is an article for another day.
Denying race is as ridiculous as denying gravity. The fact that people even get paid to preach race denial is an attack on all of us and our identities! I believe it is crucial that we refute this lie for sake of the truth and to ensure real progress can be made between the different peoples of the world.
Below are 10 questions that I devised in order to help you corner and refute proponents of the idea that race doesn’t exist:
- If race doesn’t exist, then why do certain groups of people only produce more of their own kind? For example: When two “whites” mate, they produce whites; when two “blacks” mate, they produce blacks. Never have we once witnessed two black people producing an Asian baby, nor two white people producing a black baby, or a black couple producing a white baby. The only time Asians or Blacks can produce a “white-looking” child is when the child has albinism, and that is merely a lack of skin pigmentation.
- If DNA is a molecule, and it is composed of amino acids that create a set of instructions that builds an organism, then how is it possible for race to be a social construct? In other words, how can race be a social construct if it is constructed biologically? Something that is constructed biologically is a biological construct; our labels of such things are social constructs, but they do not negate the existence of them. Race is a biological reality.
- If race doesn’t exist, and we are all genetically identical, then what is diversity? Why the need for affirmative action, racial quotas, and forced integration if we are just all people with different skin colors? Skin color is just an expression of one’s unique phenotype.
- If race is just skin deep, as some will claim, then why are certain groups susceptible to a certain disease when compared to those of another group? Why do we find consistent general differences in bone density, reactions to medications, skull shape, facial structure, hair texture, brain sizes, IQ levels, eye color and hormonal levels etc., between clusters of human beings that share common genetic traits and a heritage with each other? Skin is tone is just one of the many differences between human beings and race is way deeper than that.
- If race doesn’t exist, then why do some people identify as “bi-racial” or “mixed”? And when we see a “bi-racial” or “mixed” person, how can we, most of the time, accurately guess which races were mixed by simply looking at them? If race doesn’t exist, what exactly has been mixed? (Tiger woods for example)
- If one argues that race is social construct because there is no exact template or specific one gene that absolutely identifies someone as part of a “race” (due to the many genetic variances and expressions of each individual person) then one could argue that human beings do not exist, since there is not one human being on this planet who is exactly the same as another, and that there is no standard from which to determine who or what is a human being.
- If things are considered to be social constructs because society uses labels to identify them in reality, then one can argue that reality itself does not exist since there is no way to accurately measure subatomic particles. Such line of thinking would lead to the idea that we created reality in order to define what we cannot possibly measure or prove to be real with absolute fact. Does reality not exist because we cannot measure it absolutely? Just because we cannot measure something absolutely, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist in reality.
- If people were all created equally, then why are none of us 100% identical; not even twins? How can all the races be created equal when each human being on Earth is genetically different? Clearly, no people of the same race are even equal; but, they do are share more in common genetically than those who are not of the same race. This fact is why human populations can have fixed traits that all of its members share (how white people all have white skin, and blacks all have black skin). No white person has black skin and no black person has white skin. Thus two whites are more closely related to each other than a black and a white person would be.
- If one believes in evolution, than they must believe that small advantageous mutations caused new organisms to arise that were genetically different from their progenitors; thus creating a new separate group that shared particular genetic traits that their parent and other unrelated groups did not. How can one deny the existence of race if evolution shows that genetic mutations and natural selection among the human species created different groups of people who were not identical to their progenitors? Clearly the immense diversity of all the species on Earth is not denied by biologists or geneticists, so why do people buy into the idea that humans are somehow special? It is absolutely disingenuous to acknowledge the existence of different breeds of dog while simultaneously denying the different breeds (races) of man.
- If one understands how genetics work, then they almost must accept the fact that genes are biological traits that can be passed down and expressed in one’s offspring. If one believes that race is a social construct, does that mean that they also believe that one can inherit a social construct? In other words, can a social construct be passed down and express in one’s offspring? The obvious answer to this questions is NO.
