I caused a firestorm when I suggested that Blacks (really only males) are possibly more sadistic than other races. The video of the White woman attempting to kill the cat has fed the controversy.
To clarify, this is my theory:
Of course, sadism and love of cruelty cut across all races and all ages. We all have it in us. We were all 13 once. Now, suppose we could somehow quantify sadism and love of cruelty in human populations, say over a period of time, through large numbers of individuals, and give it some sort of a value.
Now, taking Whites, Asians and Blacks, males only, and looking at large numbers of them, studying them and assigning a sadism/love of cruelty value, of course you’re going to find sadism/love of cruelty in all of the groups. One could even argue that it’s natural. However, my argument would be that the Black males would have a higher value than the other groups. It would still just be an average across the groups.
On this site, we have a number of Black commenters and authors who ought to get low scores. And we’ve had some White commenters, now banned, who should get high scores. But we are only looking at an average across the group.
I can’t prove it, but it’s a hunch of mine.
