You know, I have built a reputation out of answering the uncomfortable questions using the language of economics to explain human evolution, development, behavior, and thought.
And providing uncomfortable but true information is always ‘edgy’. And working on ‘edgy’ subjects draws attention.
Despite writing rather prolifically against racism (particularly racism against whites), I have ended up as a bit of a …. spokesman on the matter, quite by accident.
And honestly it’s not something I care for.
The truth is I hate the subject, I don’t care if I’m edgy, I just want to know the truth. And the truth is that every single claim of racism is just a postmodern form of ridicule, shaming, gossiping and rallying.
The fact is that steriotypes are the most accurate measure in the social sciences.
So what will we do to change the fact that stereotypes are profoundly accurate descriptions of behavioral distributions among people with similar features. The reason is very simple: the scale of the underclasses of warmer climates that did not undergo manorialism is larger than the scale of the underclasses of the colder climates that went through manorialism (west europe, and east asia).
Agrarianism was a genetic meat grinder. It made a profound difference. And the plague, and hte fact that europeans hanged so significatn proportions of the population every year, and the east asians (chinese) used the axe with equal profligacy let the middle classes move downward and create higher median distributions of abilities and behaviors.
