Oh yeah, finally, another slag word that Americans use for backside/buttocks is "TUKAS." Your TUKAS (pronounced TOOKUS) is your arse in America.
Got it ?
We have that phrase in England too, it's Yiddish!
With that knowledge I imagine that is the last time you are going to use the term, as you don't want to be tainted with a Jew word in your mouth.
I am not a racist, Sculptor, in the sense that if a met an African, Chinese, Aboriginal or Mexican guy/girl and we had similar interests, the same kind of sense of humour, and basically just enjoyed each other's company, then I am sure we could become friends and hang out together. Skin colour is not an issue for me.
The term racist, is typically meant to refer to someone (usually of white Anglo- European descent) who hates ALL
black Africans, ALL
Japanese (or whatever) in an indiscriminate manner. For instance, Hitler was a racist who blindly hated ALL Jews on account of the antisemitic political propaganda he was exposed to as a youth in Munich, that, and his reading of Houston Stewart Chamberlain's anti-semitic racial pseudoscience. Chamberlain's conceptions of volkish antisemitism and his theory of a great, Teutonic, Aryan master-race made a profound impression of the young Hitler. When you add in the fact that Hitler was probably highly intelligent (high IQ) but clearly mentally unstable - in that he was afflicted with a narcissistic and probably some species of psychopathic personality disorder - one can begin to understand how the Holocaust became a reality.
"Race" is not, strictly speaking, a scientific concept; I know that, and I understand and accept the academic argument that undergirds it. Technically-speaking it is true that the term "race" cannot be used in sciences like evolutionary biology, anthropology, genetics. Fine, but this post is not a high falutin' academic paper that is being written for publication in the mainstream, ethology literature; so, when I say, for instance, the Japanese race are different from the Black Sub-Saharan African race and from the Swedish race I will be using the "common or garden" connotation of the term "race", and I will presume you understand what I mean. Which is this... if I placed 5 average Japanese adults from Tokyo City next to 5 randomly chosen Black Africans from a village in Uganda and 5 typical Swedes from a native suburb in Stockholm, and asked you: "Do you notice any differences between the 3 groups, Sculptor?" You would say, "Of course I do!" And that's because there are
clearly, pronounced group differences in : physiognomy, anatomy ( bone and muscle size/structure), skin pigmentation, the types of clothing that is worn, etc; that are immediately identifiable upon examination. Also, there are distinctive psychological differences between the three groups, for example: they speak different languages, they think in different ways, they have different world-views, different codes of morality, different cultural values, different social mores/manners, different types of religiousity/spirituality, and so on. So, that is what I mean by races and the differences between them.
My beef with race is, as I said, nothing PERSONAL.
My thinking on the issue of race is DEMOGRAPHIC. Before I continue, first let me say that I think White Western European civilization, which began in France around 1020 (with the Cluniac reforms) developed a magnificent culture over the ensuing 1000 years or so. I think it is fair to say that Western culture is objectively superior; no other culture developed by any other civilization (ancient Egyptian, Roman Empire, Ottoman Empire, Byzantine Empire) that has emerged in the history humanity over the past 6,000 years has managed to match it for power, sophistication, richness and beauty. This Western culture began 5000 years ago with the pale-skinned proto- Indo-European peoples whose homeland was in the region of the Caucasas Mountains. About 3000 years ago a group of these people migrated into Western and Northern Europe. They were called the Yamnaya culture and were a light-skinned, horse-riding, "aristocratic" warrior "race" who lived and organised their society according to a strict warrior's code of honour. Eventually, one group of these Yamnaya, Indo-European people migrated to Scandinavia where they established what was called the "Battle Axe" culture. The "Battle Axe" culture eventually gave rise to the first Germanic people (the first speakers of the proto-Germanic language and forebears the later Germanic tribes of Saxons, Jutes, Angles, Visigoths, Ostrogoths, Vandals and so on. The Saxons and the Angles arrived in England around %00 AD and developed the language we call "Old English" this language eventually evolved into Modern English. Today in what we call Western civilization English is the native language spoken in most of the large Western nations like the UK, the USA, most of Canada, New Zealand, Australia. In terms of the size of its vocabulary and expressive capabilities Modern English - the language of Shakespeare - is without peer. In short, I am proud to be a white Anglo-European, I think the English have made a tremendous contribution to Western civilization/culture and I have no qualms about pronouncing Western culture/civilization to be to greatest that mankind has ever produced. Does that make me a racist?
So lets look at the United States in 1965, the wealthiest and most powerful nation on Earth Demographically the vast majority of American citizens were of white Anglo-European descent. In 1965, however, Lyndon Johnson ratified the "Naturalisation and Immigration Act" (aka the "Hart-Celler Act") which threw open America's borders to foreign non-white immigrants. Under Johnson's new legislation immigrants entering the US came increasingly from Africa, Asia and Latin America as opposed to Europe. As a consequence of the 1965 "Naturalisation and Immigration Act and other liberal immigration policies ( like Obama's DACA), it is predicted (by the Pew Research Centre) that by 2065 the population of America will be 440,923 of which 46% will be White/European, 13% black (African - descended), 24% Hispanic and 14 % Asian.
This reckless immigration policy could well have catastrophic results for America, for the following reasons... Different races/ethnic groups do not mix; they do not integrate, they do not assimilate. If you try to force them to mix you will have serious social strife on your hands. It is just a fact of human nature, i.e; generally speaking people prefer to live among others of their own kind ( of their race/ethnicity). So as increasing numbers of Hispanic, Black and Asian immigrants enter the US in the years to come, and those already in the US have children, there will be a "Balkanization of the nation as Blacks, Hispanics and Asians form ever larger insular racial enclaves.
My worry about race, and why I am so critical of America's past and continuing immigration policy is that when you have a demographic situation where large populations of Blacks and Hispanics are living in separate demesnes, because the average IQ of both groups is low (and IQ is predominantly heredity/genetic - at least that's what the scientists think), the average IQ of their enclaves will be low and that is a guaranteed recipe for every type of social ill that you can imagine: violent crime (homicide, rape, assault, etc), property crime, drug addiction, educational failure, corruption, poverty, unemployment, chronic welfare dependency, sub-standard housing, poor health/disease (like HIV), lowered lifespan length and so on and so forth. But, of course, none of this will be their fault. It will all caused, they will say, by the wicked machinations of white privilege, white oppression and exploitation. The Blacks will still be complaining that they can't manage their affairs successfully because of slavery and Jim Crow. The Hispanics will cry "racism" as well and blame the fact that they are living in 3rd world conditions on the white man. Eventually a tipping point will be reached and American society will erupt in countless, ongoing, large-scale riots.
