Skip to comments.Why White Supremacists Are Chugging Milk (and Why Geneticists Are Alarmed)
Posted on 10/18/2018 9:30:38 AM PDT by Theoria
Nowhere on the agenda of the annual meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics, being held in San Diego this week, is a topic plaguing many of its members: the recurring appropriation of the fields research in the name of white supremacy.
Sticking your neck out on political issues is difficult, said Jennifer Wagner, a bioethicist and president of the groups social issues committee, who had sought to convene a panel on the racist misuse of genetics and found little traction.
But the specter of the fields ignominious past, which includes support for the American eugenics movement, looms large for many geneticists in light of todays white identity politics. They also worry about how new tools that are allowing them to home in on the genetic basis of hot-button traits like intelligence will be misconstrued to fit racist ideologies.
In recent months, some scientists have spotted distortions of their own academic papers in far-right internet forums. Others have fielded confused queries about claims of white superiority wrapped in the jargon of human genetics. Misconceptions about how genes factor into Americas stark racial disparities have surfaced in the nations increasingly heated arguments over school achievement gaps, immigration and policing.

They troll the news and everyday events constantly, just looking for something to BITCH about...ignore them.
A Ray Nagincist?
This is actually 2 years old. 4chan wanted to make the media outrage machine collapse by suggesting anything and everything was dog whistling for white supremacy. First it was the OK sign, then it was milk (because lactose intolerance is rare for Europeans), then a popular meme trash dove which was purple was secretly a Nazi Eagle, etc.
Therefore, it's politically expedient to get some white chick to complain about nothing for them?
Milk is great. If you’re a calf.
The main thesis is stated as: Todays proponents of racial hierarchy are making their case by misinterpreting research on the human genome itself.
Much hand-wringing ensues over the fact that information on human genome can be used to bolster and support viewpoints other than those approved the Times editors and readers, and presumably held by most of the people in academia doing the research on human genetics.
In the post, the link is accompanied by a snippet of hate speech urging individuals of African ancestry to leave America. If you cant drink milk, it says in part, you have to go back.
Well actually the people making this statement haven't misinterpreted any data: the science does show that Europeans are unique in their ability to metabolize lactose efficiently as adults. They have just incorporated it into their rhetorical pitch.
The tougher problem is "should hate facts be allowed"? The left is having a very hard time dealing with this.
The left has enforced an orthodoxy in the Social Sciences for at least 50 years that we are all essentially the same, until culture molds us. This is sometimes referred to as the "blank slate" theory. A very well respected (read: left leaning) professor and author wrote a book on this that is excellent reading, particularly for your Leftist friends. In it he shows who created this theory, and how hard sciences, like genetics, have pretty much proven that the "Blank Slate" is wrong. And, more and more advances in genetics are pin-pointing the genetic basis of various traits, including "liking milk".
This is all very hard for the Tards. The Social Sciences are especially important to Leftists, all of their programs for remaking the world start with some Social Scientist writing a paper. But, if more and more we learn that it's not "social malfunction" or "inequality" that causes things like low test scores, but genetic capability - well that's devastating for the Left. What's the excuse of remaking all of society?
So, this article is an extended vamp on the unfortunateness of "hate facts" and that science is being understood by the barbarians outsides the gates of the ivory towers, and being "misused" by them for their own purposes.
Subtitled: The Modern Denial of Human Nature it might better be subtitled: The Leftist Academic Denial of Human Nature.
Charles Murray was right. This book is hated, but the results have been duplicated many times now.
One interesting book was this one, which expanded Murray's thesis to the rest of the world.
This book is really hated by Leftists, and explains why "sh*th*l* countries" remain so.
The Times article includes this image, as part of collage of horribleness.
Now we have a genetic test that correlates very closely with IQ test scores, which correlates with life success in America and national wealth globally.
Soon liberals are going to have to start suppression of science, which is what this article is pointing towards. They pretty much admit that in the article:
Great care should be taken in communicating results of these studies to general audiences. says John Novembre, a University of Chicago evolutionary biologist, and author of the "milk genes" work. says.
The Times goes on to note with alarm:
Already, some of those audiences are flaunting DNA ancestry test results indicating exclusively European heritage as though they were racial ID cards.
All in all it's an amusing article because it points out that the Left are clearly not "the reality based community" as they have fashioned themselves, but are now fighting to maintain science-fiction ideas of the 19th and 20th century in the face of accepted science.
Here is another illustration from the article, blown up big enough to read:
Chugging milk! Did he win the Indy 500?
The low average IQ scores of some of those countries is most likely due to an inadequate diet for infants and toddlers.
I doubt it. Got any links on that? There is a whole industry devoted to debunking the obvious.
Central African countries with the lowest IQ haven't been particularly hard hit with famine, they have some great awesome natural resources like Lake Victoria and the Congo River to exploit for food.
You go back through the history of sub-Saharan Africa and it's notably lacking any architecture beyond simple one story huts, written languages, machines, even wheels.
Primitive peoples are primitive for a reason, and it's not "lack of adequate nutrition".
Well, supposedly the calcium and milk fat make milk somewhat slimming. You heard it here first! :-)
I love milk, but I’m on the Keto diet, so I get to use a little cream here and there, but no milk.
Why do these people go on about white superiority, when according to IQ tests, Asians are, on average, the most intelligent race? This cracks me up. They will do anything to try to explain away the dismal performance of minorities in school.
Yeah, both milk drinking and the OK symbol being white power were 4chan trolls. They just made it up and the left ran with it.
Well, the key question is, do you black out after drinking lots of milk? And do you drink it from red Solo cups? If so, youre obviously evil personified.
I came by my distaste for milk honestly. When I was growing up dad wanted to save money so he would purchase powdered skim milk, according to him it tasted better if you let it sit in the refrigerator for 24 hours after mixing. We moved over to Southeast Asia when I was 10 and over there you couldn’t get milk, well you could get milk but it was canned so my formative years were spent drinking powdered skim milk and canned milk... I lost my taste for milk completely after that. Sometimes I put a little bit of milk in my coffee but not very often my coffee is usually drunk black and I like dark roast. I enjoy the burnt Taste of French roast the best... Plus it keeps the rest of the family out of my coffee stash.
Say, Amy, why dont you write a piece about the Talmudic-Kabbalahists, humm? You know, those liars that make white supremacists look like choir boys.Daily Stormer misses you.
These liberals truly believe it. They are delusional as all get out.
“Altering or even suppressing your results because you fear that the info may be used by socio political groups you hate is, in and of itself, a form of hate speech, let alone an assault on science and objectivity.”
And a form of mental illness in the paranoid schizophrenia continuum.
