Are Russians White?

Comment: “Physically they are, but behaviorally there are some differences. Russians, along with many ethnics, tend to be more ethnocentric and less universalist in their thinking than the whiter-people. In this sense they are a little closer to the NAM’s [Non-Asian Minorities] than the whiter-people are, and therefore understand them better.”

Another comment: Most “Russian” immigrants to the US are not ethnic Russians. “Russian” immigrants are overwhelmingly Jewish, with an admixture of Georgians and Armenians.

Whether ethnic Russians are really “white” people is also debatable. Even beyond the fact that there is a substantial admixture of Tatar and Mongol genes in the Russian population, the history of Russia between 900 AD and 1900 AD was very different than the history of Western Europe. Most Russians are descended from serfs, which is to say most Russians are descendants from the results of 700 years or more of slavery. It’s probably not a coincidence, whether you want to blame nature or nurture, that ethnic Russians seem to show many of the same social pathologies that show up in the African-American population – an inability to cooperate effectively and non-violently even with members of their own ethnic groups, trouble with authority, promiscuity, high percentage of children born out of wedlock, much value given to stereotypical “masculine” behavior, etc. But this is more of a problem in a country like Germany, where there are lots of ethnic Russians immigrating, than it is in the US.

“One thing I’ve noticed about Portland and other liberal, whiter people cities (San Francisco, Seattle, Ann Arbor): the bums there are especially aggressive. I suppose this because they are coddled by the local culture and unafraid of the locals in a way they wouldn’t be in other, more conservative cities.”

“The SWPL believes that, no matter how “bad” diversity gets, since nothing moral can be done to resolve it, nothing at all should be done, so you just have to learn to get used to it. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to convince him that something moral (as the SWPL would understand it) can be done.”

This article failed to mention one of the main reasons for Portland’s whiteness, an accident of nature. In 1948, a massive flood of the Willamette destroyed Vanport City, a Portland suburb that was then Oregon’s second largest city and home to blacks who had moved to work during WWII. Whites wern’t hospitable to flood victims, and many left. To this day, you can hear local blacks strangely claim the flood was a big conspiracy.

I Love My Car Mechanic

My car has been reluctant to start all week. This afternoon, after work, it appeared dead. I finally coaxed it into starting. It’s 4:40 p.m. and about 100 degrees out. I want to get this problem fixed fast and I don’t want to get my hands dirty. Only once in my life did I buy a battery and install it myself. I hated doing that. I want someone else to do the work.

I drive to my mechanic. I wait for a minute for him to finish off with another customer. Then I tell him my problem. I ask him to check my battery. He does. My battery is dead. He installs a new one. I’m on my way in ten minutes and I am in time to get the good parking where I live. I don’t have to arrive at work late tomorrow. I don’t have to worry about getting my car towed to my mechanic tomorrow. I don’t have to worry about anything related to my car. I can come home and drink cold smoothies.

I have had many car mechanics who took advantage of my ignorance, but I love this place!

Shlomo Einhorn – The Rock Star Rabbi

From Tabletmag.com:

Shlomo Einhorn
Yavneh Hebrew Academy | Los Angeles, Calif.
The Orthodox Union’s synagogue guru

Shlomo Einhorn is a rock star rabbi. And it’s not just because he has his own album. It’s because the 35-year-old is one of the most successful synagogue rabbis in America and the Orthodox Union’s go-to person for revitalizing religious life around the country.

When Einhorn arrived at New York’s West Side Institutional Synagogue in 2005, the place was practically deserted. Shabbat morning services boasted an attendance of 12. But seven years later, Einhorn was drawing over 400 people each week and had increased synagogue membership by 70 percent. He did it with out-of-the-box events with flashy titles, like an annual “Rock ‘n’ Roll Shabbaton” featuring actual performing artists—including Roger Daltrey, the frontman of The Who. In addition, Einhorn designed educational programs that integrated elements of popular psychology and delivered sermons that were almost as likely to cite Led Zeppelin or Bob Dylan as they were to quote the Talmud or Hasidic masters.

Einhorn’s work was so successful that in 2010 the Orthodox Union gave him his own think tank to craft programming for other synagogues across America. Want to grow your membership? Run a successful Hanukkah event? Spice up your shul’s Shabbat? Einhorn has a program for that.

In 2012, Einhorn moved back to his hometown of Los Angeles to serve as dean of Yavneh Hebrew Academy, an elite Modern Orthodox prep school, and as the rabbi of its congregation. Since then, he’s embarked on a popular Los Angeles lecture tour covering the history of Orthodox Judaism and launched a sermon series on repentance that continues through the High Holidays.

Muslims In Los Angeles

Prior to a couple of years ago, I never saw any Muslim women in full hijab in Los Angeles. Now I see them regularly (particularly at a children’s store in the Century City mall). I suspect Muslims are growing in numbers and confidence.

Praise Allah! I am seeing full hijab and even burqas at Roxbury Park now.

I have friends in prestigious jobs who never say anything unpopular in public and they hate Muslims with a passion (in private) and would like America (and the first world) to be completely rid of them. This raises the question of whether all peoples are equally suitable to live in America and to prosper here.

How long can one remain a good liberal and want America to be free of Muslims? What next? No blacks and Mexicans?

European Jews Hiding Their Jewishness?

I wonder if Jews supported the goyim in developing strong racial, national and religious bonds (similar to such Jewish ties), then in turn the goyim would have more positive views of Jews? For the past 50 or so years, many left-wing Jewish elites have supported multi-culturalism, multi-racism, and mass immigration of Muslims and third-world peoples into the first world.

Report: A 2013 study released by the European Union’s Agency for Fundamental Rights reported that a third of Jews polled in a number of EU countries refrained from wearing religious garb or Jewish symbols out of fear, and 23% avoided attending Jewish events or going to Jewish venues.

While 66% reported anti-Semitism as having a negative affect on their lives, 77% did not bother reporting abuse or harassment.

Almost a third were mulling emigration as a response to heightened anti-Jewish sentiment.

More Jews Embracing Far-Right Immigration Restriction In France

This could happen elsewhere as well as Jews wake up to the idea that multi-culturalism and multi-racism is neither good for them nor for their host countries.

In England, most Jews support severe immigration restriction, in particular, no more Muslims.

Incidentally, the “Holocaust denial” on the far-right is not about the Holocaust and history, but it is about the use of the Holocaust by elites to restrict discussion of important issues such as race and Islam and Jews who have more loyalty to Israel than to their host countries.

(JTA) — The number of Jews who voted for the far-right National Front party soared in the most recent presidential election from the previous two votes, surveys showed.
In the surveys of French Jews, some 13.5 percent of 1,095 respondents who self-identified as Jews said they voted for National Front President Marine Le Pen in the 2012 presidential elections.
Asked about the two previous presidential elections, from 2002 and 2007, respectively only 6.1 percent and 4.3 percent of Jewish voters polled said they chose the National Front candidate — Le Pen’s father and predecessor as party leader, Jean-Marie Le Pen, who has a history of convictions for “inciting racial hatred” and Holocaust denial.

New York Times: IQ Not Important, Until It Is

NYTIMES.com: “Mr. Hernandez’s lawyer is seeking to have the confessions thrown out, suggesting that his client, who has an I.Q. of about 70 and a history of mental illness, gave a false or coerced confession.”

If people with low IQs are more likely to commit crimes (which the evidence suggests), society needs to keep closer tabs on them.

REPORT: The majority of studies have found IQ differences between offenders and nonoffenders (e.g., Ellis & Walsh, 2003). On average, the IQ for chronic juvenile offenders is 92, about half a standard deviation below the population mean. For chronic adult offenders, however, the average IQ is 85, 1 standard deviation below the population mean. A study of Texas inmates who entered the prison system in 2002 indicated that approximately 23% of the inmates scored below 80, almost 69% scored between 80 and 109, and only 9.6% scored above 110 (Ellis & Walsh, 2003).

To give readers an understanding of the relative proportions of individuals with IQs in those ranges, we offer the following statistics, from Ellis and Walsh (2003): Only 9.18% of individuals in the general population score at or below 80, 63.39% have an IQ
between 80 and 109, and 25% have an IQ at or above 110. These data clearly show that low-IQ offenders (below 80) are substantially overrepresented in the Texas prison population (23%–9.18%), that those with scores between 80 and 109 are modestly overrepresented compared with the nonincarcerated population (69%–63%), and that individuals with IQ scores at or above 110 are underrepresented in the Texas prison
population (9.6%–25%). Data from every other state reveal the same pattern.

IQ scores derived from prison inmates depict a clear relationship between IQ and offending; however, it is important to note that some scholars question the validity of this association. They question whether criminal justice processes function so that intellectually dull offenders are more likely to be incarcerated. If so, the
association between IQ and imprisonment would be substantially inflated. Data from nonincarcerated offenders, usually matched on criminal record, cast doubt on this criticism. Studies have found that low-IQ offenders are more likely to be involved in crime over their life course, that they are more likely to be involved in chronic property crime, and that they are more likely to commit acts of violence (Ellis & Walsh, 2003).

Their overinvolvement in crime, especially crimes involving violence, account for the reasons why they are incarcerated, not their low IQ…

Although much of the research shows that there is a modest to strong relationship between intelligence and antisocial behavior, some researchers dispute the validity of this relationship. Critics argue that the empirical association between intelligence and criminal behavior may be accounted for by other factors. They highlight three general criticisms: (1) that differences in police detection ultimately account for the IQ → crime relationship; (2) that an individual’s race and/or class may account for the relationship; and (3) that the relationship is in the opposite direction, namely, that it is antisocial behavior that leads to lower intelligence. We now examine each of these arguments in greater detail.

NYT: Kashmir Copes With Flooding and Anger

NYTIMES.com: “A week after the Jhelum River breached its banks, many victims of flooding in Kashmir say that the aid response by the Indian government was too little, too late.”

Gee, I wonder what the average IQ of these folks is? I suspect it is in the 80s. More enterprising folks would have done more to build up their living conditions and spent less effort blaming the government for their troubles.

Who Says Blacks Don’t Tip Big?

LATIMES.com: “McCoy, who makes millions, was hammered by critics, including celebrities, for the tiny tip [20c] on a tab of more than 60 bucks, when the receipt was shared by the restaurant on Facebook.”

You can’t generalize from these isolated incidents.
