Everyone's A Racist!

So says science:

Here's something that doesn't make sense: On one hand, we know that racism is still a big deal (you can't argue with it -- studies show it still turns up in everything from jury decisions to hiring practices), but how many outright racists do you actually know? How many people at your office fling the blankets aside each morning and scream, "TODAY I SHALL OPPRESS A BLACK MAN!"?

Probably not that many. So we have the seemingly impossible situation of a world with a lot of racism and not many racists (and no matter how anonymous you make the poll, you can never find significant numbers of people admitting to being racist). Science suggests it's because all of us are a little more racist than we think.

And Canadians being the nicest people in the world may be a rumour that got out of hand, a rumour started by a Canadian no doubt:

See, no matter how much we make self-deprecating jokes or talk about how we suck and play the role of the lovable loser, experiments show that deep down, we think we are nicer and more generous than we actually are. Psychologists have long known that people tend to think they are more altruistic than the world in general, but researchers weren't sure if that was because we overestimate how great we are or because we underestimate everyone else. Hint: It's the first one.

Although the above information is from a humour site it still contains elements of truth. Indeed, what we find so funny is "funny because it's true."

It may very well be that we humans are prone to racist impulses that can be masked or tamed but no so easily defeated. If that is the case then the we as a nation need to stop and reflect upon this if we are to insist upon creating a multi-racial paradise or at least a reasonable facsimile thereof. That paradise may turn out to be fantasy; the reality, hell.

And the altruism of the common man is more myth than fact. Self interest is a very powerful motivator. If there is nothing or little to be gained by being nice then humans are disinclined to behave that way.

This is why I tend to roll my eyes every time I am told that immigrants come to Canada to contribute to her success. Hogwash! They are here for personal gain, not to help us Canadians out as if we need their help in the first place. If they were so inclined to help a people then they would help their own by staying in their respective nations to work to improve their lot in life and those of their fellow countrymen.

A chapter in the book Superfreakonimcs debunks scientific studies that claim to prove that altruism is a dominant characteristic of humanity. It does this by spotlighting the problem these studies had but failed to take into consideration; that the subjects were being watched and they knew it. Armed with this knowledge they behaved in a fashion that would make them look good to those conducting the study. Remove this awareness and people acted differently and not very altruistic at all but were guided more by self interest.

This is why I feel immigration, as well a multiculturalism, oftentimes is regarded favourably by Canadians in polls and surveys. It's because Canadians are responding in the way they think they should to appear favourable to those asking the questions. They know they are being watched and their answers recorded. And on a grander scale they know the world is watching too since inevitably their nation will be measured against other countries. But in confidence and in the real world Canadians' attitudes contradict what is alleged in polls leaving one confused as to how favourable Canadians view immigration and multiculturalism. If I may so inclined as to answer for them I have to say, not very.

I'll be away from a computer for a week. Comments will not be seen until then.

Everyone's a racist, but especially white people, so says science: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYQVDik69Nw,

What? Don't look at ME, it's SCIENCE!

Hope you enjoyed your vacation, Pax.

Ya of course as soon as a White person has any kind of opinion, especially one expressing some sort of racially self-regarding position he/she is called a NAZIWHOWANTSTOKILLSIXMILLIONJEWS. It's nothing more than a cliche that has been perpetrated upon White people by the ANTI-WHITE enemies of our race. They have invested trillions of dollars into terms like 'racist,' 'the White race,' 'White Supremacist.' These terms are loaded because the Anti-Whites socially engineered them that way in the attempt to psychologically recondition White children so that they would resist openly communicating their racial self-interests while the Anti-White openly perpetrate the biggest attempted genocide upon little White children.

Whenever anyone calls a White person racist our answer is always:

"In your horribly biased opinion I'm racist, but you are just saying that because I'm White. Everybody knows that that the term 'anti-racist' is nothing more than a vicious code word for ANTI-WHITE. We don't have to take anything that comes from that kind of pathologically Anti-White mindset."

That's it. And you repeat it over and over. You make this point over and over because it is TRUE, TRUE, TRUE.

The following MP3 from White Rabbit Radio is one of the best discussions on White genocide and debate counter-tactics for White people I have encountered. It is only 1 hour long so give it a listen. We have the goods on the ANTI-WHITES and their attempt to harm/genocide our race, and they are not walking away.

Yet non-whites insist on moving to white majority nations? Go figure.

If what that research suggests is indeed true then why should a white majority nation like Canada continue to invite non-whites into the country and in such large numbers that it threatens their majority status? You'd think it will be best to maintain the racial balance, not disrupt it.

I'd like to see a study that measures the racial biases of Asians. I doubt the results will differ much.

Actually why isn't there a study that measures the racial biases of Asians? I guess we'll never know.

In any case it seems everyone's a racist to varying degrees. Science says so! So what kind of country are we building if racial biases are innate. Or are we just ruining it with evey new cohort of immigrants every year? What justification can be made then for mass non-white immigration?

Immigration built the country. It can also destroy it.

Immigration did not build Canada or America. The truth is as plain as the nose on your face. WHITE immigrants built our countries. Non-White immigration is destroying them. As White people are ethnically cleansed(an crime under international law by the way) from North America, it will become increasinly third world in all aspects reflecting the third world population which as replaced the White people who lived here and constructed North American civilization.

Race is real, and race matter.

Moreover, race differences are real and derive massive differences in outcomes at all levels. That is natural law.

White countries are for White people regardless of what the multicult religion has tried to force down the unwilling throats of innocent White people and their children.

If the study's authors wish to confirm that, they will find the methods to do so, of that I am certain.

It is possible to find a study that validates absolutely any personal opinion or bias one wants to or has. Why don't you try me: give me a hypothesis and I'll find you a study that corroborates it. Heck, it used to be a hobby of mine. At one point I wanted to find a study that proved that racists are trash (socioeconomically speaking) and I did so within 10 minutes, thanks to Google.

I'd venture a guess that this has to do with perceived economic opportunity and the government's open invitation moreso than it does with the white populace. Doesn't change the fact that human nature dictates that people wish to fit in with the dominant group or culture, so once here, they're still going to become "pro-white," and this is especially true of the children of immigrants.

If you want to get specific then yes. If you want to get more specific it was poor European Christians who did or at lest got the ball rolling. It wasn't until they built something worth coming to that the upper classes of European society started to arrive. With Native Canadians excepted, all other non-European histories in Canada are just footnotes.

Non-White immigration is destroying them.

I am inclined to agree but for now I do see it hobbling Canada's progress and maturity.

I'd venture a guess that this has to do with perceived economic opportunity...

Despite the myriad of immigrant horror stories about careers stalled, careers destroyed, and cabbies with Phds. they keep coming. Perceived indeed. But I guess for some, living in poverty in Canada is better than living in poverty in their home countries.

...and the government's open invitation...

With little mandate from the people to do so. The "open invitation" is the grease that slicks the palms of ethnic vote blocks but if you paid any attention to the last federal election you'd realize that. Immigration is just a voter importing mechanism.

Doesn't change the fact that human nature dictates that people wish to fit in with the dominant group or culture, so once here, they're still going to become "pro-white," and this is especially true of the children of immigrants.

So when Toronto and Vancouver become Asian majority in a few decades does that mean immigrants to those cities are "going to become 'pro-white'?" If you live in an ethnic ghetto, and there are over 230 in Toronto alone, that ethnic enclave is the dominant group.

There is some assimilation but many immigrants and their Canadian born children exist within their ethnic subcultures to the Canadian dominant culture. This makes them feel comfortable living in Canada without have to disappear into the mainstream. And oftentimes it is race exclusive.

A good example is "desi" culture. It's a pan-Indian subculture that Non Resident Indians (NRIs) and People of Indian Origin (PIOs which are the children of Indians born overseas for four generations) have adopted as their own and is exclusive by race and national origin. You'll see this on display when an Indian awards show arrives in Toronto in June.

You may have convinced yourself "they're still going to become 'pro-white,' and this is especially true of the children of immigrants", and I concede this is sometimes the case, but not often enough to make a generalized statement. When "my culture" is spoken of by immigrants and their Canadian born children they are not talking about one rooted in Canada.

Good point.

What I was aiming at is that no study like that will ever arise. It seems whites are the only ones to be subjected to those kinds of investigations when racism is inherent within humanity. I always say if you want to find racism in Toronto look no further than any one of Toronto's ethnic enclaves.

What science has found is that tribalism is innate to humans. A family-first attitude ensures survival. Oddly we embrace multiracial, multicultural programming in western nations, while accepting refugees from warring factions who obviously are the LAST people to believe in such an ideal. Over the past few decades we have witnessed the breakup of Yugoslavia along ethnic lines, the breakup of the USSR along ethnic lines, the breakup of Sudan along ethnic lines, the attempted breakup of Sri Lanka along ethnic lines, the breakaway of East Timor, along ethnic lines, the genocide in Rwanda along ethnic lines...In fact on CBC during the partition of Sudan the reporter interviewed some Sudanese who said that Ida Amin was the greatest African ever, because he expelled the Indians!

If you want to find real racism, then, look no further than the White anglo-elites who run Anglosphere. There are decidedly and staunchly ANTI-WHITE, and have tried to force-blend us out of existence. There is no worse racism than that which exists towards your own founding gene pool.

Canadian exceptionalism dictates that will never happen here simply because this is Canada. There is no rationale to it and ultimiately I fear it will be our undoing.

On second thought we still face the specter of Quebec separatism which is not dead but only on hiatus (a garden gnome running for the NDP would have in Quebec). Then there is the future "Quebec of the west coast" which will be an Asian dominated British Columbia.

In fact on CBC during the partition of Sudan the reporter interviewed some Sudanese who said that Ida Amin was the greatest African ever, because he expelled the Indians!

That is so funny! I wish I caught that. Pop quiz: guess where all those expelled Indians ended up? Hint: they didn't return to the land of their ancestry which would have been the proper choice.

The reason why the Indians were so despised in Uganda and elsewhere in Africa is because the Indians were basically, to put it crassly, bootlickers to white hegemony and by being so were given preferential treatment.

The only reason canada allows immigration was because they were and are and will forever remain broke.The canadian philosophy of life is to get money by hook or by crook.Show them the money.
If you really want to see canadian racism and partiality,then go to their embassies in the world with a non-canadian,non-european passport.All they want is money.They ridicule and bahave so badly with foreigners,that Martin Luther King would commit suicide if he saw the canadian holy racist nazi attitude.Shame on you canadians.

Indians are desperate to leave their slum country, full of crooks, racism and absolutely no opportunity. Dont blame them. Trouble is, they come to Canada, and they bring all the baggage with them. They quickly turn neighbourhoods into slums, they are not all educated or professionals, rather, they end up mostly on welfare, needing medical attention and involved in crime. This is the pragmatic truth. That is why they arent wanted. Just ask the population of Brampton Ont. what their experience has been.
