The Idiocy of Racism

The origin of mankind can be traced back to northern Africa. There is no shortage of evidence, both archaeological and Biblical, to support the premise. There is some disagreement as to where in northern Africa it happened, but virtually none that put our origin anywhere else in the world. In essence, we were all Africans at the starting point of our lineage.

Merriam-Webster defines idiocy as something notably stupid or foolish, which is the best way to sum up racism regardless of form. Foolish is defined as having or showing a lack of good sense, judgment, or discretion. An anti-Semite is just as foolish as someone who hates someone for nothing more than the color of their skin.

From a genetic sense, we are all mutts, and some are more of a mutt than others. The greater the genetic material, the healthier someone tends to be. When there is less genetic material, you end up with disorders like Sickle Cell Anemia and Tay-Sachs disease.

In extreme cases of less genetic material, fumarase deficiency occurs. Fumarase deficiency causes delayed development and most who suffer will never sit up on their own, let alone walk. They require feeding tubes and care around the clock. The gene is recessive and the only way to get it is if it comes from both parents.

There are twin towns that border Arizona and Utah called Hilldale and Colorado City. The Mormon church may have abolished polygamy, but it is still practiced by a breakaway group called the FLDS. These towns are where their headquarters are, and polygamy remains a part of their religious beliefs.

Prior to discovering fumarase in Hilldale and Colorado City, there were only 13 cases that had ever been discovered in the entire world. Due to polygamy limiting genetic material of future generations, two towns are a hotbed of the disease. The FLDS goes even further than more traditional polygamy. They remove boys once they become teenagers and abandon them on the side of the road. In essence, they limit their genetic material even further by ensuring there are fewer men having children.

Tribes that are cut off and forbidden to contact by governments are dying out. They lack the genetic material necessary to sustain themselves from one generation to the next. Just like Hilldale and Colorado City, everyone is related to everyone, which causes significant problems that will not be addressed by any government until it’s too late and every member of the tribes are dead.

Anti-Semites, racists, etc., are emotionally driven people with clouded judgment, which makes it impossible for reason to sink in. Logic and reason are the enemy of those who hate, since they have nothing to counter the arguments that has not already been said countless times. Whatever can be said of the Jews, or anyone else, has already been said and no amount of verbal garbage will ever make their words stand against logic.

Their hatred is driven by something they can never admit to themselves without a great deal of self-assessment. It is easier to blame someone else and hate an entire group, than it is to admit one’s own faults and failings in life. Shifting the blame with a hateful finger does nothing to improve one’s own circumstances.

Racists believe they are superior to others based on nothing more than their race, which does include Jews. Any difficulties they face in life would no longer exist if it weren’t for whichever group happens to be the target of their hate.

In January of 2018, Steve Taylor, Ph. D. wrote an article for Psychology Today regarding the psychology of racism in which he stated, “racism is a symptom of psychological ill-health. It is a sign of a lack of psychological integration, a lack of self-esteem and inner security. Psychologically healthy people with a stable sense of self and strong inner security are not racist, because they have no need to strengthen their sense of self through group identity. They have no need to define themselves in distinction to — and in conflict with — others.”

Racism, anti-Semitism, etc. is not something anyone is born with, despite what evolutionists claim. Evolution allows for no free will and everything is boiled down to action and reaction based on the generations that came before. Racists must be born and inherit the genes leading to hatred. There is no right and wrong, since right and wrong imply a choice can be made.

Children on a playground play together without a thought being given to ancestry. They are simply other children to play with and nothing more. If Darwin was right, there would be early signs of racism in children, since everything they do is supposed to be inherited. Like so many other parts of evolution, the evidence is lacking.

If people who are otherwise mentally healthy are not drawn to racist groups, how did the National Socialists manage to get so many Germans on board in the early days. The Nazis used a time of uncertainty and propaganda to create a mass delusion among the majority of the German people. They took the existing fears and anxieties and gave the people a racially motivated target to focus their energies on.

Medical Dictionary has two definitions for mass hysteria. The second definition fits what happened in Nazi Germany, which is a socially contagious frenzy of irrational behavior in a group of people as a reaction to an event. No one who has looked at those early days of Hitler’s rise to power can say his followers were rational.

There is nothing rational about a racist. They do not concern themselves with a common origin in Africa, anymore than they concern themselves with genetic material. They seek only to shift the blame from themselves to those they believe to be lesser.
