Not arguing blacks are dangerous to be around, without protection. Nonetheless, the argument is why blacks (or for that matter anyone with trashy violent morals ) are the way they are. It’s all due to choice. In Africa and the Caribbean, they are full of superstition, and in the US, they are exposed to an immoral culture (just like everybody else). In that scenario, what do you think will happen?
Oh! If only it were true! What a better world this would be, but alas, I am afraid it is not so. There’s always an excuse, no matter where they live, eh? Blacks are never going to live in a culture that doesn’t have some weird environmental cause that’s turning vast numbers of them into thugs and crooks. I no longer believe this stuff. I look all over the world, at Black populations everywhere, and I conclude: They’re the same everywhere! It’s just a question of degree. It’s as clear as the nose on your face. Study Caribbean and African Blacks and then compare them to US and UK Blacks. See the similarities? Sure, the US and UK Blacks are way less pathological and far more successful, but the phenotype is the same, only the degree changes. I have concluded for some time now that Black groups are born with a genetic susceptibility to crime. It doesn’t mean that Black groups are doomed to high crime. But the predisposition is such that it would take a Superculture to block the genetic tendency so that particular Black group is peaceful, easygoing, and commits little crime. There are definitely some Black groups on Earth like this. But they are rare. And finding precisely the Superculture that would be necessary to block Black genetic tendencies will be a highly difficult endeavor. Under normal conditions in most cultures of the world, Black groups will commit a tremendous amount of crime and engage in vast amorality. Since there is no way that Blacks could have the same criminogenic culture all over the world in all of these far-flung places, the only obvious conclusion we can draw is that the fact that the vast majority of Black groups are wildly amoral and commit terrible amounts of crime can only be down to their genes. I can’t think of any other reason for it. Now I am not sure that anything else about Black culture or behavior is down to their genes. That includes intelligence, work ethic, etc. But on the crime and moral laxity thing, I long ago decided that they had to be born with an elevated tendency for those things. Now has science proven that Blacks have an inborn elevated tendency towards crime? Absolutely not. In fact, few have even broached the question. So I urge you not to treat this as scientific fact. It’s simply one man’s conclusion based on a lifetime of observation. Will we ever prove that this is true? It’s hard to say because we almost never prove anything in the social sciences, and although behavioral genetics is a hot new field, it is also extremely controversial, and the field hasn’t proved much of anything hard and fast anymore. Tendencies are just tendencies. It takes a certain environment to trigger them. Different environments either tend to increase or maximize the genetic impetus of decrease or nullify it. But in most typical world cultures, it’s going to express to one degree or another. So do I hate Blacks? Not really. Although I pretty much hate criminals, I figure a lot of Black criminals can’t really help it. They’re prisoners of destiny, preterite from birth. I don’t hate people for things they can’t help. Anyway, a lot of Black people act anywhere from good to extremely good (I know a lot of Blacks who are better people than I am) and I would prefer to focus on those people and not think about the others too much.
