For egalitarians, ‘racism’ is both a cause and a sign of ignorance.
In their loopy inversion of reality, a ‘racist’ is a White person who has either no first-hand experience of diversity or has been prevented from experiencing it by inculcated prejudice.
The cure is to expose the ‘racist’ to diversity, and ‘educate’ him so that he may unlearn his ‘racism’.
Yet, in my experience, so-called ‘racists’ are the opposite of ignorance. They,
- Are unusually preoccupied with race differences in IQ, and are eager to cite the innumerable related scientific studies, monographs, and reports they have devoured over the years.
- Are unusually preoccupied with the race factor in violent crime, and are eager to cite the innumerable related sociological studies, monographs, and reports they have devoured over the years.
- Are unusually preoccupied with the problem of race relations, and are eager to cite the innumerable related sociological studies, monographs, and reports they have devoured over the years.
- Have first-hand experience of the joys of diversity, and have, in many cases, migrated from a conventional anti-‘racist’ worldview to an unconventional ‘racist’ worldview as a result of that experience.
- In many cases spent years soul-searching reading the literature on race before abjuring anti-‘racism’.
Nearly all the most prominent ‘racists’ in the Anglophone world and elsewhere in the West are men with a tertiary education, most hold at least one doctorate, and most hold these doctorates in difficult subjects.
Now, it is true that prominent so-called anti-‘racists’ are also individuals with a tertiary education and that in many cases they also hold doctorates.
But, the advent, in spite of the absolute dominance of anti-‘racism’ in education, of race-specific pharmacology, conclusively proves that anti-‘racist’ education should more properly be called uneducation—a process whereby a power structure seeks to perpetuate itself through the inculcation of an ideology that legitimates their dominance; a process, in other words, of perpetuating ignorance through the unlearning of experience and the inculcation of prejudice in order to prevent learning from experience.
Nothing new, then: those who accuse others of ignorance are the most ignorant; those who accuse others of prejudice are the most prejudiced; and those who have received the most formal education are the ones who have least benefited from it.
Self-proclaimed anti-‘racists’ should always be equated with ignorance.
